Just a place holder. Not sure of needs yet :)


I am thinking of starting a ZPOC any suggestions? What did you have in mind for this thread?


ZPOC?

This thread will be used for recruitment for my new PbP, should I have need of some extra players

Do you need any players at the moment, or just pre-empting? (and / or should such discussion be in the treehouse of elemental evil thread?)


I had to germinate this to make a spot on the hub page. If you are interested Mothy, I'll toss you up for firsties on the prospective list. In fact, Since you are a proven quatity in my games, I'll put you in. Check out the discussion page, and if you feel like it, post on the treehouse of EE too :)

I haven't read the discussion thread in detail, but the premise looks interesting, and I like your players :-)

I don't want to muscle in if you're not actually looking for an extra yet - happy to sit on the prospective list if you're good with the number you have. On the other hand, as you dont seem to be far in and it may not be too disruptive to slot in another character, I could probably put something together!


We could use another. No worries. Jump right in

Ok cool. I'm thinking of either an antipaladin or a fighter type (strong, tank style). I like the idea of an antipaladin for an evil game, but am concerned that such a character might be too chaotic evil to play nicely with others (even under duress and threat of death). I'm sure I could figure out something. My other concern is that if we are going up against mainly evil (or even neutral) enemies then many of the antipaladin abilities will be kind of wasted. What do you think?

Working on a submission and going to get the rolls done.

stat 1: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 3) + 6 = 13
stat 2: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 5) + 6 = 14
stat 3: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 3) + 6 = 11
stat 4: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 5) + 6 = 14
stat 5: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 1) + 6 = 11
stat 6: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 5) + 6 = 15

Hmm, that's less than a 25 build so I'll just go 25 instead.


@Patrick Curtin: You just want the concepts first, or should I wait until I get things statted up?


2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 4) + 6 = 13 Assigned to Dex
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 5) + 6 = 17 Assigned to Con
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 1) + 6 = 12 Assigned to Str
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (1, 5) + 6 = 12 Assigned to Wil
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 5) + 6 = 13 Assigned to Int
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 2) + 6 = 12 Assigned to Cha

Level 2 HP: 1d8 ⇒ 4
Level 3 HP: 1d8 ⇒ 4
Level 4 HP: 1d8 ⇒ 1
Level 5 HP: 1d8 ⇒ 7
Level 6 HP: 1d8 ⇒ 5
Level 7 HP: 1d8 ⇒ 1
Level 8 HP: 1d8 ⇒ 8
Level 9 HP: 1d8 ⇒ 7


I'll tell you what. Since you two are the only ones who applied , I'll let you both in. I'll close it down on the other thread, I have room for two people. Go ahead and stat up your characters and we'll roll on from there.

Awesome, I love the Monkey. All hail the Monkey!

*mass crowd starts chanting in unison their praise for the great monkey*

I'll get things finished up hopefully today.

Oh, as the build rules are kind of scattered for this through the discussion thread can we get a summary here for easy reference.

What I picked up (I believe):
roll 2d6+6 -or- do 25 pt build
max hp at first roll there after and re-roll 1s and 2s.
avg wealth per level

What I'm not sure of:
Background skills?
Anything else I missed?


No i think that's it pretty succinctly. I really need to be more organized, I tend to be all over the map when starting a game.


The irony is that I believe my rolls turned out to be exactly a 25 pt build, lol.

It's good to know I can reroll the 1s for HP!

Level 4 HP: 1d8 ⇒ 6
Level 7 HP: 1d8 ⇒ 3

I have my dhampir Chaokineticist in HeroLab, but I also had a couple of other possible ideas floating around in my head. I'll post some build stuff later when I am home from work. Once you choose one, I will get the backstory set up for the hardened supercriminal now incarcerated.

I know the equipment and wealth as wrong. I forgot max gold was for level 9 and only did level 1! I will work more on that tomorrow.


One question for you, Patrick. The flurry of devastation ability mentions making a full attack using the devastating infusion. Since it's still a full attack type, would you allow a natural attack to be included (not affected by the devastating infusion, of course)? I feel like it should be ok, but definitely don't want to assume since some of my build choices did revolve around it.


That's fine pinvendor. It sounds reasonable to me.

Folks, I'm just dealing with a spot of depression right now. I apologize for my absence, but it's been a hard week, and I am hoping that things will improve soon. I should have some time to update either early Wednesday or Thursday morning.

@Drogeney: I bolded your mention of wealth. Did you find something that superseded this post stating max wealth?

I don't want to overbuy...

If what I have planned ends up being more min/maxy then my intention, I'm happy to revisit and retrain later. :-)

I can appreciate this situation, and I will send happy thoughts your way. On the plus side, this gives Drogeney and I time to be dragged into the room and engage with the absolutely hilarity that's occurring. XD

Sorry, avg wealth by level is what I meant...I thino, I've slept since then.


Lol, I think you just said the same thing...?

I was pointing out I believe it should be MAX wealth. ;P


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Rulebook Subscriber

Yeah, the name of the table is avg wealth per level.

As for max wealth, well, it would be both nice and insane.


Feel better soon Pat. :)


I figured out where our disconnect is. Whew!

The table is just called 'Character Wealth by Level.'

Your use of the abbreviation 'avg' confused me into thinking you meant something along the lines of average starting wealth which is why I was insisting 'max.'

So just to make sure I didn't misunderstand once again, we're agreed this means each player starts with 46k gp, right?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Rulebook Subscriber

Ah, I stan...er sit corrected. Yeah, that looks right.

That's the correct table. I always think of that table as 'average wealth by level' too, I don't know if its from some previous edition of D&D or just me mis-remembering it.
