The Great City of Aeon

Game Master Orelius Lionpaw

psionic campaign.



1 person marked this as a favorite.

So today I started working on a Psionic city, known as Aeon. I was wondering if anyone wanted to do a psionics-focused campaign based in that city. Gameplay would be sandbox-oriented, and you will undertake missions for various people or the state. I'll post more details if people are interested.

|IMPORTANT|
ALL Psionic classes are available and recommended (look them up on the d20pfsrd). You can use an original Paizo class, though you will need a good reason to be in a psionic city.


Sounds fairly interesting to me. o wo I've never actually used a Psionic before, but I have played around a bit in Hero Lab, and they do seem like an interesting alternative class.


Ooh, I've been looking around for a psionic PbP game! So yes--so much yes to this. *goes digging for character concepts*


I'd love to get in on a psionics campaign, preferably something mid level.


I would be exceptionally interested in a psionic campaign! I'll start considering ideas, possibly a Wilder or maybe a Dread if the campaign could suppost such a character?

I also second the idea to consider starting at level 3+


ya, would like to do a psionics based game. count me definitely interested. would like to do something more mid to high level (as most play is relegated to the low end of things), but I would definitely be interested in playing in such a game.

Yes, there's interest. Psionic races?


I've been wanting to play a half-giant psychic warrior for a while now.


@Eldon: yes, of course.

@Zaarbuc: go for it! However, in Aeon, most half-giants work the forges. Military and the like is reserved for humans. Doesn't have to stop anyone; it just means other races have to work harder to get far.

Level will start at 4, since almost everyone has requested it and it is needed for certain character ideas. Trust me, I would know. ;)


I'll come in with interest on this, since there've been a couple games that have slowed down, and recruitments I didn't meet the deadlines for or didn't get selected. I'm thinking some variation of soulknife, since I enjoy that class immensely.

EDIT: I especially like elans. What's their position in Aeon, and what does the current council favor in the way of appearances?

Almost all of the high-ranking leaders are initiated as Elans once they reach their positions. The current council generally likes to make them look rugged, with occasional scars, to make the people trust them as their leaders - even if they bribed their way to the top.

@all: Discussion thread is up. Also, please post your characters, if you can.


Point buy or rolls?


20 point buy, standard rules.
2 traits, no campaign traits unless it really fits your character.


Always wanted to play psionic! Looks pretty interesting.


I do love psionics...


Working up a Vitalist or Tactician. Gogo psionic support!


Would a Psychic Mage be viable in this campaign?


@Anyr: POSSIBLY, though you will have to explain in your backstory why exactly you are in Aeon when you know Arcane magic.

His current concept is that of an experimental arcane Elan. One of the noble houses wanted to create a new type of Psion, which would be able to convert spells into psionic powers. Unfortunately, they only managed to make the opposite: A Wizard who could add psionic powers to their spellbook. This result was condemned as a 'perversion' by the council, and they cancelled the project. The prototype Elan was grudgingly allowed to live, albeit as little more than a slave of the state. Mass production of such creatures is of course out of the question; But this particular one has proven useful enough to keep around.

How does that sound?


That actually matches up incredibly well with how the City is run. It would make sense for the Elan to have been created by House Alphonse. Perhaps he would appear as a child, since he is 'unfinished'?


Are you actually running this campaign, or just looking for a bunch of people to help you flesh out details and cross check ideas for your own table top? That's kinda the impression i'm getting.


Both, really. I might start a new Recruitment thread once I feel comfortable running the City - it's almost done. Also, I am not doing a table top game with this - none of my group is interested in psionics.

If you REALLY want proof that I'm running this campaign, I can make the Gameplay thread - but that would require people actually posting characters.

Glad to hear it. I'll start working on a full sheet for him.

Then he was.

We seem to be thinking along the same lines. I tend to picture him as looking around 13 years old.


new recruitment thread is up.
