Bribes always welcome

Here we are folks. I have decided we can start with the Reign of Winter AP. We will be starting at level 1, so if you want, post up your character ideas.

So I've already worked out what I'm playing then...


Female Human (Jadwiga) Winter Witch 2

How's this?


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

There we go. Character one down


I'm thinking either cleric, paladin, or ranger. And I always play humans. Beyond that, I don't know.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Ok. A few words on me as a GM. just so everybody gets the monkey's headspace.

1. I am not great at rules. I am a storyteller. I do my best, but if I mess up on something, please do not hesitate to point it out. I will not be offended, pinky swear.

2. We are playing an AP, actually the first I am going to run as an AP, unmodified (well, who knows till we are inside, but that's the intent). As such, this is new territory for me.

3. We have a brand-new player, my wife Heather. She will be statting up a character. If you folks with the numbers-fu could help me explain stuff I'd appreciate it.

4. Sometimes, life happens. I am just getting back into posting and I am hoping to keep it up. I will endeavor to post up at least once every couple of days, hopefully more. I would appreciate the same courtesy. If there will be an extended absence, I will post it here.

5. I want us all to have fun, that is the primary function. I don't like TPKs, or killing characters off, but it is a possibility. I am very open to customization, and I have no problem with 3rd party publisher's material.

6. I do reserve Final Authority. I am open to debate, and I am usually willing to retcon, but I do make the final call.

That's it so far.

War Priest Dave?
Or perhaps a Slayer?

I usually play clerics, fighters, or barbarians. I want to try something outside of my comfort zone.

Male Human (Ulfen) Urban Barbarian 2 [HP 36/36; AC 17]

I have some stats up. Thoughts?

The concept is that he is of Ulfen stock, but raised in Taldor. Outwardly, he bears the manners and smooth speech of the Taldane folk, but in battle, his northern blood takes over and he goes into a rage.

I've never actually played a barbarian before, but I like those raging power attack bonuses. My goodness...

A Varangian Guard?


Female Human (Shoanti) Paladin (Divine Hunter) 1

Character stats are done, background to follow.

Concept is that she's a wandering do-gooder favored by the ancestral spirits of her clan, the Lyrune-Quah. Does pretty typical paladin stuff RP-wise, but carries a giant-ass bow, wears light armor, and can't fight in melee worth a damn.

There is actually a subset of Ulfen (from the Land of the Linnorm Kings) society called the Ulfen Guard who work in Taldor as Prince Stavian III's personal bodyguards. It is quite conceivable that Gaelin is a junior member of this unit, as they operate at Stavian's behest throughout the Inner Sea Region.

There is an Ulfen Guard PrC in the new Inner Sea Combat Campaign Book if you're interested Max.

I went with more of an orphan backstory.

Yeah I read that. Looks cool, I figured I'd let you know about the Ulfen Guard though, just in case you wanted to have a squiz. :)

Just a heads up, my posting may be spotty beginning Wednesday afternoon until the following Tuesday. We will be driving up to Minnesota for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary.

Every time I see "Jeydavu" I think "Deja vu". Is it an intentional play on words?


Bribes always welcome

Heads up. Memorial Day weekend will be flat out for me and Heather. I like the stuff so far and I will try to find time to get things straight

no, I was looking at the list of Oread names in the advanced race guide and it just latched onto me.

Funny, when I tried to make the Alias for this character Jeydavu was already taken, hence the Hellirinn addition.

Male Husband/10 Dad/10 Gamer/5 RPGer/2

So for completed characters we have:

Flash - Ecaterina Tredyakovskaya - Winter Witch (arcane caster)
CH - Gaelin Northvein - Barbarian (definitely melee)
Shiny - Tama, Moon's Daughter - Paladin (non-melee)
Tordek - Jeydavu of Hellirinn - Arctic Druid (melee focused)

Still to come
Patrick's wife's Rogue
Woodhaven - Monk

I hope to have Heather's character finished by sat 12pm. We can begin the game after that, woody can get going when he's set

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

Coolio :)

I'm assuming full hp at 1st level, but wanted to make sure on Starting Gold?


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Full as well

Male Husband/10 Dad/10 Gamer/5 RPGer/2

I too hope to see this game kick off :)


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I am very sorry for the delay folks. It has been a very busy, bad week. Lots if things, but I am ready to get this started.

No Problem - Lesson #1 for her and PBP's, Real Life trumps online gaming. Tell her good luck.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

Whoops, sorry I didn't realise this had started. I had my eye on the Discussion Thread (Focused), but nothing appeared here to announce that the game had started, so I missed it. Sorry...

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

That said, my character isn't quite ready to make her entrance at this stage of the game. :)


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Hello everyone:

I am growing more and more disenfranchised with Paizo, since the Kickstarter debacle I am living through. I am about to cut my subscriptions and leave this place for good. How would everyone feel if I ported this game to another message board?

Shadow Lodge

Male Husband/10 Dad/10 Gamer/5 RPGer/2

I'm sorry to hear that your frustration has reached the point where you feel compelled to leave. Not a good sign when a charter subscriber leaves for that reason.

I am still very interested in playing so if you decide to restart on a new board, I'll be there. Just let me know where.

Silver Crusade

Male Celestial Cleric of Myself 10/Radiant Servant of Me 10

I'd give it a go.


Female Human (Shoanti) Paladin (Divine Hunter) 1

Character background finally updated.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

While I'm not entirely keen to join another message board, I can fully understand your decision and still want to play. So count me in (once you guys finally leave town and I can join in).


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Still trying to figure things out. Have gotten a few alternate site recommendations. Will see


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

ok folks quick update: I have had my issues resolved, and I don't feel a need to disturb things by shifting message boards. Also, I am sorry things have lagged-I will restart tomorrow, time willing.

Shadow Lodge

Male Husband/10 Dad/10 Gamer/5 RPGer/2

Sounds good to me. Glad things worked out positively. Ready to roll.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

To everyone:

I am dropping this to apologize for my absenteism. I was dealing with a bunch of Real Life issues, and time never seemed to be there for me. I have a moment today, but I wanted to just say thanks for putting up with my absences.

I am also dedicating myself to getting this rolling. I am going to step in for my wife, who is far busier than I, and can't get the time to get involved, alas. Could everyone shout out who is still engaged? I will get things kicking and I want to see where we are.


Sure, I'll stick around.

Shadow Lodge

Male Husband/10 Dad/10 Gamer/5 RPGer/2

I am definitely still in. Hopefully, your wife will be able to join us at some point.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

Yep, I'm still in. Just waiting for the party to leave town. :)

Silver Crusade

Male Celestial Cleric of Myself 10/Radiant Servant of Me 10

Still in!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

OK. Trying to rock and roll this a bit.
