My earlier idea had been to go Dwarf Druid.. now i'm thinking Aerenwe, but you've said fighter domain...

Would it work if I made a combat type dwarf druid for Aerenwe or should I switch to human or just to fighter?

Thanks

Make Arwenwe into a druidic domain. Even if it's full of dwarves.

Wow! That's like crazy. You do know that Medoere is a theocracy of Ruornil's faith right? You will be the sacred voice of Rournil. And Suris Enlien retires.

Liberty's Edge

Yeah...worked out weirdly. Also, should I re-roll the Major Resistance-charm as I have it twice?


yes. reroll Major Resistence - charm.

Liberty's Edge

ok

Starting up recruitment for another player or players. Birthright is an unusual campaign in where you play a noble playing the Game of Thrones (hehe, Birthright came before A Game of Thrones).

Looking for players who want to play a hero king. You can play a king in Roesone, or Aerenwe, Diemed, or Medoere. Prospective players should check Birthright.net. Although I'm playing my own mix of pathfinder and birthright rules. You may play an Anuirean, a Vos, a Khinasi, a Rjurik, a Brecht, an elf, a dwarf, and a halfling. No gnomes.

Prospective players should know one thing:
We are using the Pathfinder 1e ruleset. Also this campaign handles adult themes. (Politics is an adult theme, and we do politics in this campaign).


Pathfinder Lost Omens, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Seems interesting. What are the character creation specifics? Also, I don’t know a whole lot about Birthright so I may make a few mistakes in character creation.


25 point buy, 2 traits (may come from ultimate campaign), 2nd level. You might want to read the Wiki.
Birthright Wiki


Pathfinder Lost Omens, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thanks for the creation info. I’ve looked through the wiki a bit since I saw the post, and I might have a character coming together.


Pathfinder Lost Omens, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I’ll have access to my computer and Hero Lab tomorrow, so I should have a character, or at least the stats and a basic concept, up then.


Eltonj, I missed this on Thursday. Are you still looking for players? How does Point Buy interact with bloodline strength?

Assuming you are, an half-elf arcanist is interested in taking the crown in Aerenwe.

Secret Plan!:
He plans to invite his kindred to inabit the Erebannien, building a kingdom by uniting elven magic and human dynamism.

I am assuming straight PF1 rules here, with bloodlines stapled on...

Basic Stats:

Niall Riordan Aeric Swordwraith

Init +4
Speed 30 ft
Low Light Vision

Defense

AC 13 Touch 12 Flatfooted 11
HP 15 (2d6+4 Con+2 FCB)
Fort +2 Ref +2 Will +3
CMD : 13

Offense

Melee : Longspear +1 1d8 Cestus +1 1d4
Ranged: Longbow +3 1d8
BAB : +1
CMB : +1

Arcanist (Occultist) 2,
Arcane Resevoir (4/5), Consume Spells

Race ½ Elf (Arcane Training, Weapon Training) (Favored class Arcanist)

Elven Immunities: Half-elves are immune to magic sleep effects and gain a +2 racial saving throw bonus against enchantment spells and effects.
Weapon Familiarity: Half-elves raised among elves often feel pitied and mistrusted by their longer-lived kin, and yet they receive training in elf weapons. They gain the elf ‘s weapon familiarity trait. This racial trait replaces adaptability.
Keen Senses: Half-elves receive a +2 racial bonus on Perception checks.
Low-Light Vision: Half-elves can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
Elf Blood: Half-elves count as both elves and humans for any effect related to race.
Arcane Training: Half-elves occasionally seek tutoring to help them master the magic in their blood. Half-elves with this racial trait have only one favored class, and it must be an arcane spellcasting class. They can use spell trigger and spell completion items for their favored class as if one level higher (or as a 1st-level character if they have no levels in that class). This racial trait replaces the multitalented racial trait.

Abilities

Str 9
Dex 14
Con 14
Int 16 +2 (racial) = 18

Cha 14

Skills : (ranks, bonus)

1st 4 /Day

Bloodline Stuff:

Please double check this. I am not quite sure I am doing it right. In particular, the 4d6X2 +10 formula is what Daniel Stewart did, but I don't understand where it comes from in the birthright wiki.

Derivation
1d100 ⇒ 95 Elven Bloodline = Anduiras
Strength
1d100 ⇒ 45 Minor Bloodline
Score
4d6 ⇒ (1, 4, 1, 6) = 12 Bloodline Strength = 12*2 +10 = 34
Which is a Mod of +4, 3 minor abilities, and 17 bonus HP

Abilities
1d100 ⇒ 43 Healing
1d100 ⇒ 13 Animal Affinity
1d100 ⇒ 75 Iron Will


Dotting for interest.

Birthright is one of the old campaign settings that piqued my interest back in the day, but I never actually played in.

Thinking of a Vos Cavalier (Emissary archetype) will delve more into the wiki and the game itself and see what I conjure up for consideration :)

It doesn't. Point buy for stats and bloodline strength are two different mechanics.

Well, okay, King Niall Riordan Aeric Swordwraith. You will have access to 1d3 Realm Spells. Your rival for sources happens to be one of the original players.

Ok, Alias created. I assume you mean select 1d3 realm spells

1d3 ⇒ 1

Realm Spells:

Subversion

I will try to write up a character background ASAP, but that may be a bit...

Consummate Liar +1 Counts as Combat Expertise for some feats.
Hypnotic Stare (-2, 30 feet) (Su) As swift action, target creature takes penalty on Will saves.
Intimidating Glance You can attempt to demoralize the target of your hypnotic stare as a swift action.

Noble Scion of War You are a member of a proud noble family.
Painful Stare (+1, 1/round) (Su) As a free action, hyp. stare target takes extra precision dam from a hit.

Bloodline:

Bloodline Derivation: 1d100 ⇒ 21 Bloodline: Anuirean Frequency: Common/Anduiras
Bloodline Strength: 1d100 ⇒ 26 Minor Bloodline
Bloodline Score: 4d6 + 10 ⇒ (5, 6, 6, 5) + 10 = 32 Bonus is +4, giving me 3 minor abilities (I believe), and 16 bonus HP

Not sure how to generate bloodline abilities, I'd love if somebody could fill me in.

General Concept:

The Avaldemours were once a minor family in Diemed, without much by way of prestige or power. However, they did contribute substantial amounts of troops to the armies of Diemed. Galwain, their third son of five, sought to increase the power and prestige of Diemed, and if possible, seize the throne of Diemed. Galwain was a mesmerist of somewhat substantial talents, and using his magical abilities and almost supernatural gift of charm, managed to become married to the sole daughter of the Baron of Diemed. The man was old and unwell, and it took a single payment for the old baron's apothecary to prescribe a rather vigorous session of bloodletting to ensure that the old man shuffled off his mortal coil. With the baron dead, inheritance and the de facto rulership of the Barony fell to him.

Galwain is not the best of men. Though he does care deeply for those he is close to, he sees most others as means to an end for securing his family's claim to the throne and increasing his family's prestige.


Can you change his class? Psionics (and their ilk) isn't a feature for Birthright Campaigns.


Pathfinder Lost Omens, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Sure. Wasn't aware of that restriction, my bad. I'll have to adjust a bit so the general background might be different. Also, how are bloodline abilities figured out?

Go here, if you got a bloodline score of 32, you get three blood abilities: one minor, one major, and one great.


Sorry chief I'm not going to have as much time to pitch as planned - some ongoing campaigns have kicked up a notch/been reskinned so my card is fuller than expected.

Will lurk with interest :)

Cheers

Feel free to lurk! It's so far interesting.


This looks interesting, I'll have to read over the wiki and see if it's for me.

How would you feel about a vigilante?


Simeon wrote:

Vigilantes can control law holdings while they are in their presentable identity. While being a vigilante he goes against his own laws. It would be Confusion, while it can also lead to good roleplaying.


Pathfinder Lost Omens, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

That was a bit of my thinking. I might not exactly go for the traditional “superhero” role expected from the vigilante, but I’m glad that the vigilante’s allowed.


Pathfinder Lost Omens, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Alright, here's the updated Galwain Avaldemour. I'll need to change the background slightly. My current idea is that his social identity is a typical noble, but his vigilante identity is restoring the Anuirean Empire by whatever means necessary.

It's complicated, but it should work for great roleplay. Your character is approved for play.


This is a test.

A 4d6 ⇒ (5, 6, 3, 3) = 17
