Skerrin

I'm not quite sure I understand why you'd leave a slot open. Can you explain?

You've neglected to tell me about your familiar! Which one did you choose? What's it's name? Also, I do require stats for the little buggers; although it will happen quite rarely, they do get attacked from time to time, and need to make saving throws!

I know it seems awfully detailed of me, but I do ask that you figure out your carrying capacity and current weight carried.

What's the benefit of having two spell component pouches?

What is the * at the bottom where it says Scribed Spells?


Male Elf Magus (Bladebound/Hexcrafter) 1

Leaving spell slots open allows for utility.

As per the Core Rule Book, if a Wizard leaves (a) slot(s) open, he can take 15 minutes to prepare spell(s) later in the day.

This way, if there is a first level spell that I decide I really need, and we have some preparation time, I can do so :-)

I had not picked a familiar yet. I will do so.

Having two component pouches is a hold-over from previous campaigns - so that if someone sunders my component pouch, or steals it, I have a back-up :-)

The *Scribed Spells refers to the cantrips that Skerrin had to scribe - as a specialist, he does not get cantrips from his 'opposition schools' in his starting spellbook, but I am a completist, so I had him pay for them :-)

I will deal with carrying capacity shortly, although I am fairly certain I stayed under a light load...


Male Elf Magus (Bladebound/Hexcrafter) 1

Skerrin is carrying *exactly* a light load :-P

Skeith:

-You list Cerelia as the Arisan version of Calistria. What/where/who are the Arisans? I have not been able to locate them in Golarion. Also, most faiths in the Inner-Sea region do not vary in their god's names. (I could be very wrong about this).

-You still have, by my calculations, 2 more points to spend. I am assuming you placed the changeling's '+2 boost anywhere' into Dexterity.

-

Little hint::
For spoilers, type [spoiler=What you want it to say) when you start a spoiler code.

-Your HP is much higher than that! It should be 18.

-Not that I think it will never come up, but just keep in mind your +10 bonus to disguise only applies to Skeith. Also, it is a Circumstance bonus, not racial.

-As I said with others, I know this is me being nit-picky, but I'd appreciate you listing all of your carrying capacities, and list the weight of each item you carry.

-You may not purchase a magic item with your starting gold. Nix the potion.

-You have listed many things that are on your person, that cannot simply be on your person. Amoungst them are Chalk and Thieves tools. Surely, these items are in a container? More importantly, for all those items, where on your person are they? (Obviously, the backpack is on your back, and you are wearing your armor, I know these things.)

-I'm having many a problem with your background:

-One is my fault, or Paizo's I feel, because they don't let you edit old posts. The party is no longer in Magnimar. So you can just delete that part.

-Sandpoint is a small town in Varisia, and is actually a sub-town of Magnimar. It is not a city.

-The Keepers of the Veil are a group of magic users in Qadira, which is quite far away from Varisia. Your background doesn't lend itself to being a member of their order; in fact, I'd say that you'd have to be planning on taking a level in a magic using class next to back up taking this trait; it is falvored in such a way that being a magic user is key in taking it.

-Why would there be an orginization in Qadira that is dedicated to the Seven Sins, when their history is built upon Horse riders and Genies? And why would this orginization give a care about a little town like Sandpoint, oh so far away, when there are more powerful, and influential, cities dedicated towards grander, better deeds, much closer to home?

-Now, that said, there indeed are reasons that an organization would be interested in Sandpoint, for it's Ancient Thassolonian ruins, which some suspect are tied to the Seven Sins. Varisia itself is tied to the Seven Sins in many ways, and Skeith could be a lookout for he doesn't know what in regards to the Seven Deadly sins.

-That said, I'd likely bump his alingment to NE, or LN, or LE. The Church of Asmodeus is tied to the Seven Sins, and Cheliax, the City of Devils, did indeed once control the region, and you could be a scout/spy for that city.

-You have not listed your character's favorite food and drink.

I will need to go back and calculate how much gold you've spent as well.

Skerrin
-You also have not listed your character's favorite food and drink.


Male Elf Magus (Bladebound/Hexcrafter) 1

I listed that in the recruitment thread :-)

For your convenience, I will reproduce my answers to all of your questions here:

A character goal:
To learn more about the Thassilonian Empire, through the analysis of the ruins scattered throughout Varisia, and a retrospective study of the culture of the indigenous human population.

One paragraph describing what your character looks like, how they carry themselves.
Skerrin is an elderly Elf, with a mane of fine silvery hair, and a tanned, weather-lined face. He generally dresses in a sturdy explorer’s outfit, dyed green with designs picked-out in silver thread. He typically has a journal and quill in hand, ready to make note of anything interesting which catches his eye.

One paragraph describing you character's personality.
Although he can be quite distracted at times, going off onto tangents about esoteric subjects, he is quick to smile, and is filled with boundless energy – although his strength is failing, he is still as spry as ever! Skerrin does not tend to bear grduges; he does not see the point, when he will continue to live for centuries, of allowing disagreements to fester. He can, however, be a staunch ally.

We'll start the game in Magnimar, as you are heading to Sandpoint. Give me a reason why your character is heading to Sandpoint.
Taking a look at a map of the Gulf of Varisia, Skerrin decided that the best way to approach the hinterland of Varisia would be to catch the regular 'ferry' from Magnimar to Sandpoint.

Just for fun, tell me your character's favorite food and drink.

I've got to pracitce my Carnie and Heckling skills!


I'm imagining Skeeball, or something similair?


Male Changeling Rogue

Sorry about that, Gob. Most of those were carried over from my homebrew world and unintended to be added in Skeith's update. Just had most of it as a 'placeholder' for what I needed to do until I got it all updated. I'll fix it immediately.

As for the Seven Sins Alliance, that actually has nothing to do with the Thassilonian Empire. I came up with it about thirteen years ago as a loose conglomeration of the seven most powerful organizations in my world (Aris - hence Arisan). I'll fix everything as soon as my 'Edit' tab starts working again.

Discovered the Glitches whilst trying to edit it earlier after reading your responses.

As for my Keepers of the Veil trait, I'll go into much further detail with Skeith's background once an opportunity arises. Essentially he was embedded with various organizations as a sleeper agent and from there he picked up various tricks that he uses to this day. I intended the Keepers to be one of those organizations as well as a few more that I can go into detail about later since you seem to be of that preference.

I'll also fully copy/paste my answers for your 'survey' from my Notepad that I completely forgot to post up earlier. I'll try to get this all done as soon as possible, but I'm active duty military and despite it being my 'day off' today, I have training to attend in about half an hour. T.T


Male Changeling Rogue

At work updating Skeith as we speak - addressing many of the issues you brought up. Unfortunately, as I'm not at home right now, I can't access my files and upload his modified background, so I will be doing that today.

A couple of questions I had that came up during review. You mentioned that my HP should be 18, but I'm failing to see how you came up with that number. Is the party higher than Level 1? If so, I can see where the higher number came from, but if not, wha? Lol.

Actually, I think that's the only question I really had, but if I think of any others then I will promptly bring them up to you.

Thanks and apologies for the back-to-back posts.

Indeed, you are correct!

---------
Skieth:
I can see how this may have been buried:

»Starting HP: At first level, it is MAX HP + your Con SCORE + your Con Modifier. Afterwards, it advances normally, but, if you roll a 1 on your HP, treat it as a 2.
---------
Scavenger Hunt Players:
I am working on riddles for the scavenger hunt! This might take some time, I'm sorry! :( I might only do three at time, just so you aren't stuck waiting. If you want, your characters can play midway games, and the scavenger hunt line will, oddly, suddenly get longer!
---------
Everyone:
I have moved all the character creation rules and character sheet template to the Campaign Info Tab! I will be getting Reputation Scores up soon. I know the game has been dragging, but I hope we can get it moving again! I'm, uh, sorry it is stalling because of me! *blush*


Male Changeling Rogue

Thank you, Goblin. Indeed, I did miss that wherever it was, but I appreciate the clarification. Apologies if I'm holding up the game in any way. I'd much rather have my character fully completed and modified before I post. Besides, it means I have the opportunity to come up with a dramatic introduction.


Goblins could you post a brief thing about the rules for Skeeball? I imagine it's going to be ranged attacks or similar? I may play a game while I'm waiting on Dani xD

Dark Archive

Whatever's clever Human Librarian, 5th Level

8 tries, 1sp

Dex-based ranged attack roll:

DC:

Roll of 1 or 5 or less= No points
6-10= 10 points
11-15= 20 points
16-20= 30 points
21-25= 40 points
Roll of Nat 20 or 26+= 50 points

160 points or less = No prize
170-240 points = Money back
250-320 points = 1gp
330-390 points = 3gp
400 points = Special Prize (or 5gp)

If you win more than two games at 250 or more points, the guy refuses to let you play again unless you succeed at a DC 15 social skill check; each new check increases the DC by 5. Or you cast a charm spell or think of something else I have not.


Demaiv is bad at this xD.

Either that, or Skerrin was going to wander around bemused for a bit, before finding something else to catch his eye :-P

No no, you're doing wonderfully. I was just trying to give Zalaria a chance to respond. Which she'll get another day as I'll be heading off to bed and I'll need time to catch up before I respond.

Sorry, but I guess I'm a bit confused as to what's going on? Is there anything in particular we're supposed to be doing? I tried reading up on it, but given I'm usually at work when I check this, I usually have to check it on the fly and now I've gotten lost as to where we are.

You are at the Swallowtail Festival, which is Sandpoint's celebration of it's new church, after the old one was burned down 5 years ago during the 'dark times'. Your characters are supposed to enjoy the festivities!

My games are usually more focused on the roleplaying aspect than they dungeon-crawl kill the baddies aspect. What would your character do at a festival?

That's good. I was reading from my mobile phone and its a bit difficult to keep up, especially with how busy it gets here at work. I'm constantly work, work, work, check threads, work, work, thread, work, thread, etc. Its a hassle sometimes, but I thoroughly enjoy being able to at least access this at work.

At home is a completely different story. Hardly any free time there. Lol.

EDIT: Have you thought of investing in a $200 Netbook? I have an Acer I purchased from target over a year ago. Very compact; I have cargo jeans from my youth that would easily hold it. You could just tell people it is a very large cellphone! Or a Kindle...although my Kindle Keyboard has trouble accessing this site.

My collection of Paizo-browsing technology is extensive already (iPhone, iPad 2, home laptop, etc.). The part where lack of capability comes into play is when I'm at work. I'm an active-duty MP in the military and most of the places where I work at we aren't allowed to have electronic devices (cell phones included). The posts I usually work at offer access to Paizo (until the Comm Squadron decides to block it) but the computer is a shared government computer. The basics of it are this: if I'm absent for awhile, I apologize, but I always try to post as quickly and efficiently as I can. If I find myself reduced to one-liners (which I despise) I'll usually make up for it with a large, concise post.

And roleplaying is big with me (I mean, come on, I've played rogues almost exclusively for 12 years.). With rogues, if roleplaying ISN'T involved, then the class is reduced to, "I disable this, I backstab that. Oh, and I guess I'll do a fancy flip." What would I be without my precious Bluff checks? Nowhere. That's where.

Thank you and have a lovely.

Not a problem, Gob. If it makes it easier - gold, jewels, gems, and shinies will work just fine. Just roll a d20. However much the roll is plus 5 will be my take.

Diplomacy of 1d20 + 9000 ⇒ (8) + 9000 = 9008

The 9000 is a GM discretionary bonus given based off of how awesome I am. =D

Okay, we've just had a demonstration of the extreme end result of setting impossibly high expectations for oneself, and so I am officially done putting things off until I can do them right. Let's just get the ball rolling. Wait for something big to happen in just a moment.

A review of my combat rules:

WHEN COMBAT STARTS, I WILL TELL YOU THE OPPONENTS INITIATIVE. IF YOU ROLL HIGHER THAN THAT, YOU MAY GO RIGHT AWAY. I WILL WAIT 24 HOURS FROM WHEN COMBAT STARTS BEFORE SAYING YOU'VE HELD YOUR ACTION. IF YOU MISS A TURN, YOU MISS YOUR TURN, AND YOU DON'T GET IT BACK. SAME RULE HOLDS FOR ME, BUT ONLY AFTER EVERYONE WHO HAS OR COULD HAVE ROLLED HAS ROLLED OR NOT POSTED, THEN STARTS MY 24 HOURS. YOU GET IT UP TO THE MINUTE, NOT BEFORE. UNLESS YOU STARTED COMBAT, I WILL TRY AND MAKE THE OPPONENTS NOT ATTACK YOU IF YOU HAVEN'T ROLLED INITIATIVE YET. DO NOT ABUSE THIS KINDNESS.

This means the goblins will be going sometime after 22 hours have passed.

Yes, yes. I know they shouldn't be able to move and attack. But, I let them. I won't often fudge rules for enemies. But sometimes, I will.

Do you KNOW what that goblin you MURDERED had done that day?

He had gone to his goblin wife, admiring her goblin beauty, with her jagged yellow teeth, football head, and tiny saggy boobs like an 80 year old midget, and showed her his undying love as a warrior going out to battle; he beat her senseless. He then gathered his children before him and laid his lips on each one; and when he found the tastiest of the bunch, ate it. And then he dawned his puppyskin leather armor, sheathed his ancestral dogslicer, passed down through 13 generations after it was made 2 years ago, and went into Sandpoint, visions of smash and baby-flesh dancing through in his small, pea-sized brain.

And then you just had to come along and RUIN it all! Because Adanel is a RACIST! Of all people, a half-breed freak like Adanel should understand the pain another being feels when rejected by a society whose reasoning is based solely on unbiased and racist beliefs! But NO! Not Adanel. The bullied become the bullies. The murdered become the murderer. Yeah, that's right. I called Adanel a murderer. What!? You make something of it?

Oh my god don't hit me!

Should've gone to a Goblin lawyer and had his last will and testament drawn up if he really cared that much about his family. =D


Male Human Witch

Adanel's not racist. He just hates everyone. Just happens he's better at killing goblins than others. Perhaps he can do the goblin a favor and send the rest of its family to meet him.

With this said, did we kill all of the goblins that were in the immediate area? That is before the others arrive. If not, Adanel will seek to fix this problem.
