For all your discussing needs! Like crunch options and chatting. ^^

checking in, sorry buys weekend around the house.

First question is how are we going to play this at start? Do Orithos and I know each other? Will we be waking up in the same temple or structure. I'm still a little iffy on my mythic path. Guardian for sure I like trickster for the path dabble just not sure if it fits. Champion or Archmage may fit the profile better. Just wondering if we will be working together as it could change some decisions. Thanks. Will adjust my crunch to your template tomorrow at work.


If it helps, Trickster would let you Path Dabble -once-. If that's all you want from the path, then I recommend not taking it.

As for knowing each other or not, you should work that out between yourselves. ^^ Do you feel that your respective histories would have allowed for knowing each other before losing your thrones? If not, it could be interesting to come face-to-face with an unknown deity who has also lost their power... or perhaps form a closer relationship with someone you may not have known too well before. There are many ways we could do this, and I'm happy to listen to what the two of you would prefer. XD

At this moment, I'm just letting you know I also got back from a busy weekend, and I'm addressing the tasks that we've been assigned. I do have something to ask though.

I don't exactly know the end result of my character, so when it comes to explaining how the character will progress when they gain more levels, what do you want me to put down? My characters are more story driven than optimized or min/maxed. I can try to optimize if you want me to, but it really depends on the events of the campaign and how the character reacts to them, not necessarily a rock solid plan that will last an entire character development.

@Hadran - Yo! I'm glad you were able to make it! For our characters, I don't mind either way. I mean, the way I see it, our characters knowing each other is circumstantial. If Rednal puts you or I in a situation where you're in battle, and my character is close, we might hear each other and come to each other's aid. The only actual way I see of us knowing each other right off the bat is if we met in the same destination when we came out of our respective temples, and joined up then.


I don't think you really NEED to optimize. XD Pick things that you feel will work well for you... and if you change your mind, well, that's what retraining rules are for.

As for explaining your progression, just list the basic idea of what you plan to focus on. ^^ You don't need to decide everything right now, after all.

@GM, what do you think of this template seems strong. So thought I would ask about it Celestial Blessed

@Orithos. I'm glad we both got in as well. I think it works better for the story if we don't know each other and we will leave it up to the GM when and if we meet. I was thinking it would be cool though if it was kind of like Highlander. So if when we get close some sort of sixth sense thing goes off and we are like who or what is that guy. Is he like me? What do you think?


Yes, it is fairly strong. ^^ It also requires you to know a celestial entity... so you'll have to acquire it at some point later on in the campaign if you'd like to take it, as no celestial entity currently knows you. A Celestial Blessing is also a major gift, and the sort of thing that would more-or-less immediately alert the entire pantheon to your presence - first as a subject of interest for having received it, and then if they realize you're more, well... possibly the subject of outright divine action.

That aside, this is also a template that can be lost - if the host dies, the celestial leaves, and you'd have to specifically work at getting it back. ^^ That will be enforced if you choose to take this template.

I was curious if it could work as your Herald, All gods have a herald. Was thinking about down the line as well. Either some celestial sees the potential and becomes your herald blessing you or b/c they are pretty much immortal, at least when it comes to aging, your old herald may one day remember you? Just looking around the only template I'm planing on taking still is Half-Celestial As Hadran was an angel before he ascended. My plan for this is probably 5th level. When we hit 5th I won't level and just burn all 3 level for the template.

Woke up vomiting and couldn't get back to sleep so I finished Hadran. Should be good to start now. Just went guardian will probably dual path into Trickster, maybe champion this way I have time to think about it. So ready to start whenever you are GM.


As far as Celestial-Blessed goes, the entity in question is quite literally inside you - which would make Herald work just a bit difficult. XD Tedious but possible, I suppose - and it's not so much that they don't remember you as they can't remember you. This is part of the curse affecting your characters.

That aside, I hope you feel better soon. ^^

This works out nicely for me, for one must not accept the judgement of others if he cannot judge himself.

And Ashe? Sure on the Highlander thing. I think I can make that work on my end. Also, eat stuff that's easy on your stomach. Campbell's stuff is perfect. (sorry, used to work at a hospital. old habits kicking in. haha)


The first post is up. ^^ Let's get this thing started, eh?

Regardless, you have my (dubious) blessings. I command it.

This is, like, so terribly awful!

I just, like, like, like, totally can' believe she'd, like, actually come out and say that! Er... I didn't mean it! There's, like, nothing wrong with that at all! Er... I mean... oh, dear...

Look, whatever you guys do is, like, totally your own thing, right? Like totally. I have no problem with anything! ... unless, like, you want me to, or something or whatever? Anyway, you can do whatever! Just like I uh, er, I mean she - yes, that's it, "she" - can dream of whatever! Everyone's just totally free here.

Uh, look, just... just Call me, sometime, and we can hang out! Don't let her total awkwardness, like, ruin anything, or whatever!

We apologize for the inconvenience and inanity. She apparently is pouring on the "ditz" act, for some reason. You may go back to your previously scheduled gaming and feel free to discuss or ignore at your option.


Male Agathion (Leonal) Gestalt Monk-Paladin (with bardic performance!); Mythic (dual): Archmage/Heirophant

By the way, if anything in the above bothers you, I earnestly apologize; it's in the spirit of comradery and enjoyment. Mostly, I'm just saying that I'm enjoying your story and your character. It's really cool. The rest is just silly joking around on my part in-character.

To be clear, I'm the poster who made the Herald of All post. I'm following your stories because your characters are cool concepts.

If it helps to clarify things, "H'ecks-pha-czu'whaugh" and "Heksfazia" are two sides of the same character. She'll be switching forms a lot, and have slightly different personalities with the different forms. That said, though she's not an outsider, if you do ever get the chance to summon or call her, that'd be pretty funny awesome. She is not in your game at all.

Also, she very much so pretends to be less intelligent than she is. Helps people underestimate her and enables her to manipulate them more. She's also a shapeshifter, hence her final line.

If you're interested in out-of-character discussions, I would be! I love the dual connections to Saranrae: both your own (her love) and the Raven Queen's. Pretty interesting, honestly, and fascinating to watch. It's also fascinating because both you and Sevia had their relationship changed with the advent of Rovagug, though not directly through said qlippoth god's actions, but rather just in how it changed perspectives and ideals.

Further, as a big fan of Forgotten Realms, it's really interesting to see someone else's take on a newly reborn Tyr-who-is-not-Tyr. Geeking out over it, really.

If I'm at all annoying, please let me know: it's not at all my intent.

I'm really looking forward to following your progress, unless you'd rather not, and I'd have a blast chatting with you about it on occasion, if you'd like. Either way, have great gaming, and God bless you! :D


Male Agathion (Leonal) Gestalt Monk-Paladin (with bardic performance!); Mythic (dual): Archmage/Heirophant

Hey, guys: I was hunting for my own character when I cam across this thing and thought it might be worth suggesting to both you and/or the Raven Queen. :D

EDIT: Heck, might as well share my own ideas, if you'd like 'em.

I'm out for the fourth, but I should have a post up on Sunday. I apologize in advance.


Don't worry about it. XD I'm not really expecting much from anyone on a holiday - that's just part of play-by-post games!

It's... not a very good deal. I'd recommend against accepting it.

EDIT-try-two: In honesty, though, I do hope he's doing well and can return to play, soon. I know there tends to be a rather dramatic drop-off rate in PbPs as real-life intrudes. I hope Orithos is well and we shall hear from him, soon!

curious. Are we getting xp for the big guy seems like he may level us. I'm cool with not getting xp if you want to switch to leveling us when you feel its right for the story as well.

Rednal since the ACG came out now I would like to take the cross blooded archetype I will be mixing Destined with Celestial. This will let me get the wings I wanted for the angel theme. It won't be until level 12 but thats ok. By doing this I won't be thinking about taking half celestial any more. I still would like to pursue the Celestial Blessed template, but we can also bump it up to a CR +2 instead of the +1 listed since it is pretty powerful. Still trying to work up a dude for you RoTRL game. Let me know if the above is cool thanks.


You get experience when you should be getting it. ^^ Don't worry about that - I am keeping track of it.

As for archetypes... as it turns out, you're still first level! Which, in this case, means that retraining is free - you can apply that change the next time you rest for 8 hours.

As for Celestial-Blessed, the issues with that template are plot-related. It would essentially be announcing your divinity to the entire pantheon... and will most certainly stir gods into action. ^^ Just something to keep in mind.

Bloodrager 2: +1fort, -2Will Crossblooded, +2rnds rage, Uncanny Dodge, +1BAB +21HP

Oracle 1: Myster Lore, Revelation Sidestep Secret, Curse Haunted, +2will, Spells

Think that was everything. I was thinking the haunted could be visions of his past faiures that caused him to fall. So even though he is on the path of redemption and regaining his power he still is haunted by his failures and lost love.

Oh I had to trade a trait out. I realized I had 2 campaign traits, in finding a friend/kin, and defender of the society. Defender of the society is also a combat trait if you are a fighter, but I am not. It was a campaign trait in Shattered Star and anyone could take it regardless of class. I replaced it with Blade of Mercy. Shoulc come in handy when trying to subdue targets in the future.


Looks mostly good - but I'd like you to double-check your saves. Bard 2 should have you at +3 Will, so you shouldn't be getting anything from Oracle 1 there. Class aspects that overlap (including BAB and saves) are not cumulative for gestalt characters.

Anywho, on a side note, how are you guys? It seems like all we do is type strategy and what not. Whatcha been up to? Anything interesting coming up? Kicked anyone's butt lately?


I believe I may have found Paizo's limit on watched campaigns... Ah, well. XD At least I'm having fun getting everything organized for these games - and it's given me a good excuse to really start looking through all these PDFs and adventure options...

And your level-up choices look fine to me. ^^


Male Agathion (Leonal) Gestalt Monk-Paladin (with bardic performance!); Mythic (dual): Archmage/Heirophant

Oh-hoh! I'd be curious!
(Also, it may be a glitch they can resolve if you bring it up to them on Website Feedback).


Nah, it just seems like 16 campaigns or so is all it really wants to show... I think... XD Have you done more yourself?


Male Agathion (Leonal) Gestalt Monk-Paladin (with bardic performance!); Mythic (dual): Archmage/Heirophant

Nope!

I'm not too great of a "post for watch" type guy, though I like many ideas.
(PbPs are semi-new-again for me.)

I was just curious!

Silver Crusade

Wait wait wait...you're running 16 campaigns? O.o


No, I'm only running about six of them. I'm a player in the rest. XD

Silver Crusade

Ah...gotcha. How long have you been playing dnd related games and what got you started?


HP: 174/174(188/188 Rage) -4CHA Checks in Abyss [MP 9/9 ][LP 2/2][Rage 23/23][Perform 28/28][Trance 8/8]| AC: 24, T: 19, FF: 24 | DR 5/Evil: Pro. Evil | Fort: 19, Ref: 19, Will: 15 | CMB: +15, CMD: 26 | Init: +16, Percep: +19:

Hey Rednal, yeah I know there not cumulative, you take the best bonus offered at level up though right so like when you so bard to adds +1 to will where the new oracle level adds +2 to will or is that wrong. If so I have made every gestalt character I ever made wrong. Saves are the only place I know this gets fuzzy with level dipping and what not and taking the right levels at the right time you can get some good saves. Just let me know :) Will save will be a 9 if it is the Bard +1


@Hadran: The rules could be a bit clearer... but as was pointed out in another thread, somebody could do a Level 1 fighter/wizard, then do wizard/sorcerer at every level afterwards and basically end up with double the will save they were supposed to have, completely breaking the system. Gestalt is a high-powered variant, but not that high. XD You're not taking a +1 from the Bard at level-up - you're taking the +3 (total) increase.

@Dunmuir: Not all that long, really. XD I think my earliest exposure was a couple of Forgotten Realms books, but I never actually played the game until relatively recently - mostly, I just like Pathfinder's ability to be creative with storytelling, and I got Hero Lab to aid me with creating characters for fun. Kind of got sucked in from there.

Thats good to know, I have been doing it wrong when making higher level gestalt.

Silver Crusade

My dad got the 1.0 pamphlet when it first came out, and half way through high school, I introduced my friends to 3.0. We've gone through 3.5, and then transitioned over to Pathfinder once we saw where dnd was going. A couple of my friends have tried 5.0, though, I still prefer pathfinder. There's more of an emphasis put on actually character identity rather than "the one build to rule them all." Hell, I remember the days of Pun-Pun back on the giant in the playground boards...that was scary...(shivers).

Do you have a main at all, or someone you see as your signature character? Mine would have to be a cross between two.

Lore, my paladin, a little hotheaded, but he wields his magical kite shield into battle and gets the job done.

Tammerin is a misunderstood...well...demon summoner. He summons the nether to help the good. Kinda backwards logic, I know, but hey, it works. The only gripe I've been handed about that was when there was something I was trying to do but it was too complicated and not described in the rules, so, we just kinda dropped it. Think imps building a tower, and keeping them all in check.
