My friends, so it begins anew!

Campaign details of note: Country of Lastwall (click me), specifically the border fortress of Castle Everstand.

Character motivations: This area is rife with opportunity for mercenaries, crusading paladins and cavaliers, merchants and rogues looking to take advantage of the situation, adventurers seeking to discover ruins of the previous borderlines that the orc hoard has pushed back, those investigating the evil magic of the Whispering Tyrant that Lastwall stands as an everpresent guard against, etc.

Please use the 20-point build system in the character creation rules...unless you all want to roll your stats. Since some of you are new, the build system should help make things more even, but I will let you all vote.

Either is fine, I do like point buy for keeping things even. However my current game(s) have randomised PC's.

Now, my idea is for a wandering Elf looking for his twin daughters (they were lost along with his wife when their caravan was attacked). In terms of crunch I was thinking of a Magus - however this is subject to change.

I knew you would be the first poster, ha!

I'm really new and I think I will go with your recommendation.

Well just got back from my AD&D game, just in time :P

I'm going to roll my stats because I'm a monster.

Also, character wise. Some sort of man at arms. Perhaps a barbarian or ranger. I guess I could look at all those fancy pants classes and find something in there that fits my concept but really, anything martial will work.

Also, I double post because I'm chaotic neutral at best. I DO AS I PLEASE.

4d6 ⇒ (2, 4, 1, 1) = 84d6 ⇒ (5, 2, 4, 2) = 134d6 ⇒ (1, 2, 5, 2) = 104d6 ⇒ (2, 2, 1, 2) = 74d6 ⇒ (1, 1, 1, 6) = 94d6 ⇒ (3, 4, 3, 1) = 11
Ones that didn't have any ones, dropping the lowest we got an 11.

Wow. Just wow. Alright well, rerolling ones...

2 + 4 + 2d6 ⇒ 2 + 4 + (1, 5) = 12 Dropping the lowest... 11.

2 + 5 + 2 + 1d6 ⇒ 2 + 5 + 2 + (6) = 15 Dropping the lowest... 13.

2 + 2 + 2 + 1d6 ⇒ 2 + 2 + 2 + (1) = 7 Dropping the lowest... 6.

6 + 3d6 ⇒ 6 + (5, 4, 2) = 17 Dropping the lowest... 15

3 + 4 + 3 + 1d6 ⇒ 3 + 4 + 3 + (6) = 16 Dropping the lowest... 13

I may have made a huge mistake haha!

Ephemeral GameMaster

Not necessarily. I want everyone to vote. That means if most want 20 point then everyone is doing it, heh heh.

Bu since you're special ODV, I will let you decide if you want to join the majority or stick with these beautiful rolls. :P


I am, so special. Let's see what the majority wants and we'll go from there. I may stick with these because I am a man of tougher stuff than these 11's and 6's would have you believe!

Any other opinions ya scallywags?

Well I do like point buy and with pinvendors bonus system for all our amazing RP'ing - I'm sure it won't matter if you have 5's or 6's


What are other peoples class thoughts. I was thinking a Magus could be fun, or I can slide towards the usual buffer/healer.

Don't worry about building a "party". Play whatever class you want! If we end up having a party of 4 rogues, I'd expect pinvendor to handle it accordingly! If it makes some things tougher, awesome!

Ephemeral GameMaster

As I said, special.

Spirit of Pinvendor hugs his friend OneDrunkViking with great affection.

Snowboarddragon was out most of the day, and our other player Kanmu hasn't had a chance to make it on the thread yet.

So ODV can keep his rolls if he would like, but I am pretty sure we will do Point Buy for everyone else. :D

Yeah, I'll definitely try a Magus then.... now to look at archetypes. :P
That's only left me with 3 ideas.

  • Basic Elven Magus, Elven curved blade. Some nice samurai action.
  • Black Blade Elven Magus, so the usual Elric-y dark silliness. (of course it'd only matter if we get past level 3 :P )
  • Kapenia Scarf dancer, this is the most dramatic. I'd probably change the PC into the twins mother, trying to get revenge upon orc's for the loss of her daughters. (I might even take a 1 level Cleric dip)

    I'm so decisive XP

  • Haha! Those all sounds like a delight. I am thinking either a barbarian, ranger, or maybe even a druid of some sort. Some sort of uncivilized character for a man at armsish bodyguard. The idea being the character ends up in the city only as a means. He was employed by a cleric on a pilgrimage to the city. Now what...


    Cool, like the Vikings that were hired by Byzantium and when weren't paid they pillaged with their couple of thousand troops.

    16/16 HP | Init +3

    Maybe a certain Ulfen fighter could make his return as he escorts a young girl out of the wilderness...

    Nope, I don't know that Ragnar will be making any sort of return. I'm also toying with the idea of going further in the 'druidish' route maybe a shaman, or some sort of wilderness spirit witch thing.

    Cool, shaman's are amazing. Both in flavour and some nice level 2 powers.

    Anyway, I got a bit more done on my PC. Unfortunately I think a random dice roll would be quite fun. One option I have heard is that everyone in the group rolls & you can pick anybodies roll for your PC.

    Female Teifling Oracle/1

    Hiya all! I'm still fleshing out the details of myself but I'm looking forward to the gameplay - will be my first Pathfinder campaign! <3's to all and looking forward to the adventure *^_^* (also the cleric may or may not change to summoner):P

    So everyone who is involved has posted on this board yes? There's gonna be 3 of us players? I want to know so I can adequately determine how quick I need to fast track my character building haha

    Nope pin said that there would be one other..... (and not from the Mafiosa crew).....

    Anyway I've got all my stuff sorted for classical magus, and some done for the silly Scarf-Magus. Just really need the stats.

    "No... there is... another"

    Whoops, miscounted. ¬_¬
    With SnowboardDragon, ODV, DSX & Kanmu.... that's it I believe. However, at least we got chance for that quote. :D

    True that! Alright so you guys are all doing your point buy system. I'll fiddle around with it and see how I like th--- Just kidding. I'm using my random rolls. I'll do some reading today to determine what class I'm gonna be and then I'll post back here. ETA Wednesday at latest!


    Yeah, I might just roll the dice. Here's sort of my PC, still need tweaking (unless I go for my scarf dancer).

    And the name might change.... because I am just that decisive.


    Decisiveness is hard. True facts/ 1d20 ⇒ 15

    Question! Can I have an Aurochs or Ram as an Animal companion? I see they have stats, but would you allow it pinvendor?


    I get to leave my mark on people, with an Arcane Mark!
    Tramp-stamps for all ;)

    Ephemeral GameMaster

    Both are listed as animal companions, so there is no reason to restrict you.

    But I do notice you are choosing a masochistic path, lol. A half-orc in a country that is constantly in battle with the full-bloods. :P

    It would make sense that orc-rape would be unfortunately more commoan on the frontier, but doesn't mean the society is going to look kindly on ya, half-breed.

    Dude of course! That's how I explain my 6 in Charisma!

    My lonely halfbreed orc shepherd walks the lands between. He is content with his life..... maybe.

    Edit: Also, since my aurochs is large. Can I ride him? I'm just gonna go ahead and say yes. Perfect. And who is to say my parentage is of orc-rape hmmm.... Who is to say.

    And yes. I see.. "commoan" heh heh

    M Half-Orc Gunslinger

    Almost ready for business pinkskins.

    My plans had mostly been for a city based game starting off and progressing into some wilderness excursions as you get higher in level. While I am not wanting to discourage any of your plans, I just want to make sure everyone realizes that's more or less the progression I had foreseen. Large aurochs for example may not be the best animal companion unless you don't mind not really being able to make use of them until later in the game. While you are in Castle Everstand, presumably such a large animal would be stabled and would be unable to accompany you around the grounds.

    If you all want something less static and more wilderness trek, I can work that out out I suppose. Let me know what you guys are interested in.


    "I'm easy"

    I'm happy to go wherever, of course he'll be slightly suspicious of the half-orc....

    Mhmm...shocking to learn.


    I am fully aware Wakka the Aurochs would be stabled. Believe me pin, I am fully aware of my massive handicaps :)

    Also, I can think of several reasons why my Druid might me stuck/forced to help out the city/citizens. Think outside the box yo!

    Do people not want to play?

    Ok :(


    I do!!!

    I was just waiting to see whether we roll or not -before finishing it off.


    Since no-one else (bar ODV) has said:
    I fancy rolling....
    Roll #1: 4d6 ⇒ (3, 3, 6, 1) = 13
    Roll #2: 4d6 ⇒ (3, 6, 1, 3) = 13
    Roll #3: 4d6 ⇒ (2, 4, 6, 5) = 17
    Roll #4: 4d6 ⇒ (4, 2, 5, 2) = 13
    Roll #5: 4d6 ⇒ (2, 5, 1, 6) = 14
    Roll #6: 4d6 ⇒ (4, 3, 3, 5) = 15

    So that's 12,12,15,11,13,12 nicely above average with some re-rolls.


    Let's see if we can make the PC better than 16 point buy...

    Re-Roll #1: 1d6 ⇒ 2
    Re-roll #2: 1d6 ⇒ 6
    Re-roll #5: 1d6 ⇒ 6

    So that's 12, 15, 15, 11, 17, 12 Cool!

    Man, way better than my scores! Way to go!

    Well yours aren't too bad (bar the fun 6!) And who cares about the exactly numbers (sort of)

    I know I don't care about the scores! A disadvantages makes my inevitable victory that much sweeter.

    So it's been 10+ days since we've had replies from some folks. What is the deal? I feel like play by posts are cursed for me or something :(. Tenbris lets take our ball and go home.


    Hmmm I wonder if it's an oval ball (US Football, rugby), spherical (football, handball) or smaller.


    Any type of ball.

    But of course, if anyone needs any help with their PC's then I'm here to help. :D

    In the meantime, will our PC's have met before. Ten has been wandering around Lastwall area looking for something. Wandering from city to city, trying to lose himself?
