DM Papa.DRB – Return of the Runelords (Inactive)

Game Master Papa-DRB

Return of the Runelords. Chapter 1


1 to 50 of 87 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | next > last >>

Please provide a complete character sheet for a first level character including, description, personality, look ahead (where you see your character going, ie. multi-class, prestige classes, etc.), history, which includes a good tie in to your campaign trait. You are 1st level characters, so no need for pages of history. No need for an alias yet. Only selected characters will be required to set one up.

Recruitment ends on Thursday, October 25th at 08:00 EDT. Five characters will be selected and announced Saturday, October 27th. Play will begin on Tuesday, October 30th. As this is only the 2nd recruitment thread for this AP (as far as I can determine), if I get overwhelmed with submission, with 36 hours or so notice, I will shut down recruitment so if you are interested, don't wait till the end.

Character Creation Guidelines
All the following information and more are in the profile for my DM id. Please read, or at least have a passing understanding of what is there. In addition to character creation it includes formatting, how I run the game, as well as odds'n'ends: DM Papa.DRB

  • 20 point character buy. All scores 10 or greater after racial adjustments.
  • Sources, Races, Classes allowed: Core Rule Book (CRB), Advanced Players Guide (APG).
  • One Campaign Trait for Return of the Runelords. Return of the Runelords Players Guide
  • One other trait, no drawbacks.
  • Alignment. LG, NG preferred. CG, LN, TN, CN acceptable. NO Evil.
  • Maximum gold for 1st level.
  • Maximum hit points all levels.

  • Modified Background Skills: Two extra skill points per level from the following list:
  • Appraise
  • Craft (any)
  • Knowledge (engineering, geography, history, nobility)
  • Linguistics
  • Perform (any)
  • Profession (any)

    PbP rules & General notes:

  • This is an Adventure Path. You must be willing to follow the campaign premise and plot.
  • You are an adventurer. You must be willing, even eager, to go into situations no sane, average citizen would get into.
  • Posting: Minimum once per day on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and once over the three day weekend (Saturday, Sunday, Monday).
  • To speed up play, I will roll group perception, group initiative, and other group and individual rolls as appropriate / needed.
  • Please provide your timezone in GMT. I am in upstate New York, USA, GMT -5.
  • Light Role Playing.

    This adventure specific notes, information not in my DM id profile:

    Campaign Traits: (Normal for all others. These three are “special”)

  • Accidental Clone: Only one character allowed this trait.
  • Audrahni’s Ally: Only one character allowed this trait.
  • Close allies: If two or more characters wish to take this trait, or multiple sets of characters, you are either accepted or rejected together. (ie. one set of siblings, and/or one set of lovers. Each set is either accepted / rejected together)

  • The selected PCs know each other. You are either a resident of Roderic's Cove, or you have been here for a month or more. You have heard about the deadly confrontation between rival gangs a few days ago, however right now you are now together at the Circle Market looking to buy things. This will be made clear in first game post.
  • Hunting for bargains. Per JJ, that is 10% off, not 10% of price. Make your rolls. Don't be greedy, as I will approve / disapprove choices. This is the only time and only item that will be able to purchase that is NOT from the CRB / APG. You will be getting treasure that is NOT from the CRB / APG.
  • The selected PCs will either have to provide a 17th or so level character that has played either Rise of the Runelords or Shattered Star to be part of the Sihedron Heroes, or will create one with my assistance.
  • Please read the Player's Guide fairly thoroughly, as it contains lots of information that you need when creating characters.

  • I’ve been waiting for one of these threads. I’ll definitely be looking over some concepts. Only archetypes from the APG?


    I'm interested. I'm wondering if anyone would be willing to couple with me for the Close Allies trait to be lovers? I haven't settled on what kind of character to make yet though.

    Yes, CRB and APG only, so only archetypes from APG.

    -- david


    In addition to Ouachitonian's question. Feats are only from those 2 sources, correct?

    Some people don't like the normal summoner, but it is in the APG. Do you have anything against summoners?

    Similarly, rogues may not be unchained, correct?

    Yes, CRB and APG only, so normal summoner, and regular rogues.

    Note to everyone. If your are wondering if "X" is ok? If it is not in the CRB or APG, then the answer is NO. Sorry folks.

    Very interested, DRB! Been trawling through the recruitment forums waiting for this one!

    Reading the players guide now, I'll have something presented later today.

    Fantastic! I'll post something today too :)


    Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

    Dot for interest for sure. Want to give a go with the Accidental Clone trait. I'm thinking of a monk whose formerly ascetic nature puts her at odds with her new body. :)


    Downloading the player's guide now! Very exciting, and my pbp schedule just opened up quite a bit.


    Got my submission down on paper ... (Adjunct) Dr. Predonius X. Tomulus, the son of [Fill in Sidihidron Hero], and local alchemist who may or may not partake in his own less than magical concoctions on the regular. Pathfinder Hunter Thompson, basically. Will transfer to here using your format this weekend.

    description:
    Alustria is a striking half-elven woman with dark red hair and piercing green eyes. She wears simple clothes under her leather armor, but it is easy to see the evidence of her profession in her hair and garments - sticks, dirt, and other indicators of a life spent in the wilds abound. This tendency toward unkempt grooming puts off many who might otherwise find Alustria attractive.

    personality:
    Alustria is patient, calm, and forgiving. She worships the Sun Goddess Sarenrae and truly believes in that goddess' belief in redemption before slaughter. She can seem distracted, but this is less a case of lack of focus and more that she is contemplating something deeper than the current level of conversation. She is nervous about speaking Elven around full-blooded Elves, fully conscious that her pronunciation will never be as good as theirs is.

    history:
    Alustria is the daughter of an Elven woman and Human man. Her mother is Audrahni's father's sister, making Audrahni her cousin. She came to Roderic's Cove two months ago to keep in touch with her. As always, she keeps to the outskirts of the city except when coming to market or meeting with friends, but the place has suited her so far.

    look ahead:
    I expect Alustria to proceed along the general guidelines of Treantmonk's Wild Mystic guide, staying with a full 20 levels of druid

    Dotting for interest. Likely going the arcane route, possibly arcane trickster.

    @oyzar - might be willing to work with you on the Close Allies trait. Anything specific you had in mind? Otherwise I'm leaning towards the Intrigued by Thassilon trait.

    Backstory:
    Deivon Tomovici grew up in the town of Sandpoint. A student of the House of Blue Stones, he follows the monastic teachings of Irori, honing his body and mind in the pursuit of perfection.

    When he was just a boy, goblins attacked the town during the annual Swallowtail Festival. He watched in awe as a band of brave adventurers fought them off--the very same adventurers who would one day become the Sihedron Heroes! He knew that one day he would follow in their footsteps. Once he turned eighteen, he joined up with a group of likeminded explorers and set out to plumb the depths of the ancient dungeons of Varisia.

    Unfortunately, his first real adventure ended in disaster. His party came across the statue of a beautiful woman holding a double-bladed polearm. While searching it, his companion foolishly triggered a trap! Black lightning crackled through the chamber, striking his companions. Deivon tried to dodge out of the way of the other bolts, but there were too many. His world exploded into pain as the magical feedback wracked his body, and then--

    Darkness.

    He felt like his soul was floating free of his body, drifting through an endless silver void...

    *BA-DUM!*

    His heart beat, the sound thundering in his ears. His eyes fluttered open and he took a ragged breath. It felt like he'd been suffocating for an eternity, and the rush of air in his lungs burned with intense relief. He lay there, gasping, for several moments, the world slowly swimming into focus.

    The first thing Deivon saw was his own corpse. His dead body lay staring at the ceiling, eyes open in terror. His body was twisted and blackened, wisps of smoke rising from charred flesh. His companions were quite dead as well.

    As he looked down, a few raven-black tresses obscured his sight. Everything felt off. He couldn't help but notice the large swell of the breasts now hanging from his chest. Where once he was lean, muscular, and masculine, now he was soft, voluptuous and undoubtedly feminine. He had become a woman--and not just any woman, but the same one that the statue depicted!

    Too ashamed to return to Sandpoint, Deivon travelled north, eventually reaching Roderic's Cove. There she decided to stay a while to meditate and research the fate that had befallen her. She has since learned that she's apparently in the body of none other than the Runelord of Lust, Sorshen. She has been having strange dreams lately, urging her to indulge in the pleasures of the flesh that she denied herself as a monk. The more time she spends in this body, the harder it's becoming to resist those urges. She hopes she can find a way back to her original body soon.


    Here is Fergus Ironbeard-Dwarf Paladin. I still need to do some work on him, but I wanted to toss his helm into the ring.

    Yup, missed it. I am going to have cataract surgery the end of October, so I should be seeing clearer after that....


    Here's my submission. I still haven't purchased gear (or the Hunting for Bargains item) and might do some small tweaks, but that can probably wait for if I'm selected. Everything here is 90% complete. Since the witch initially appeared in APG there's not a huge amount of options for them with only the 2 books, so I made her with HeroLab using only those two references to ensure that there were no reference discrepancies.

    Description and Personality:

    Mara is a sullen young woman. She usually does not dress with the flair and color of a typical Varisian but instead wears simple traveling clothes and keeps her hair pulled back in a plain tail. She is not initially very friendly with others but once she warms up to a group she works very well with them.

    Background:

    Mara was the daughter of a historian in Sandpoint who unfortunately passed away of natural causes when she was relatively young. She began traveling with a caravan as an apprentice and aid to a fortune-teller to make her way once she realized she did not have enough knowledge to survive as an academic. While traveling she learned some of the arcane arts of her new mentor as well as kept her eyes open for any opportunity to expand her knowledge so that she could eventually follow in her father's footsteps.
    The rediscovery of Thassilon's legacy interested her as a study she could be on the forefront of to jumpstart her academic career, and as her lack of real social skills did not bode well for a potential career as a fortune-teller she looked for any opportunity to study Thassilon. When the rumors of activity in Roderick's Cove began which supposedly was associated with Thassilon, she took all of her existing finances and left the caravan at Roderic's Cove hoping to be involved in any way.

    Plan:

    A witch using only these books is pretty much just a vanilla core witch with few options, which I actually kind of look forward to. I intend at this point to do no multiclassing or prestige classes, but will look at that again during the campaign if chosen.
    Mara will primarily be a buffer/debuffer and backup healer, with some combat ability, starting off with debuffing hexes and going from there, as well as a knowledge/linguistics skill addict.

He dresses simply and ready for travel, with dark colored and well-kept tunic, pants, and cloak under a new leather backpack and quiver. He is never seen without his black oaken quarterstaff, using it as a walking stick for the most part. He wears his sandy blonde hair shoulder length, tied back with a leather thong around his brow, and his ageless elven skin and features could belong to a person anywhere from 30 to 140 years of age.

    Background: Fandrollul originally wanted to study at the Acadamae in Korvosa, but was put off by the Fiendish bent of the ruling party of Cheliax. He wandered for a little while before meeting and befriending a traveling Illusionist, a gnome named Metaphor. This gnome would become his master, teaching the fledgling wizard all about magic, despite Fandrollul’s proclivities towards Conjuration rather than Illusion. That was no matter, as his master said, because he routinely used misdirection and guile to make his foes believe summoned or called creatures were merely illusory or vice versa. A sharp and creative mind yielded far greater results than one stultified and locked into one mode of thinking. Having learned what he needed to begin his career as an adventuring wizard, Fandrollul set out with the blessing of his master to seek his fortune.

    RE: the Scion of Legend, a master/apprentice relationship seemed workable to me. Let me know if that's not so, I can work something else in. The Sihedron Hero would be Metaphor, a gnome Illusionist who went through RotRL way back when in my IRL tabletop days.

    Almost forgot, I'm at Eastern US time (GMT -5?) And Fandrollul is gonna go full wizard focusing on summoning (and eventually calling) the most awesome critters out there.

    For class I'm thinking summoner.

    I figured that much, but was more curious if you had something in particular in mind. That being if you are really thinking summoner, I think I'll go it alone. Just not a fan of the class in general (and even less so for the original version) and would prefer not to be tied to one.


    Fergus is complete! Please let me know if I am missing anything or if any thing needs to be revised.


    I like summoner, but understand it's not everyone's cup of tea. Maybe it's a better fit for another game. Regardless, I think I'll actually withdraw my interest as I got enough other games\recruitments on my plate already atm.

    Guardian of the Forge is from Ultimate Campaign. Please pick a trait from the APG. Other than that things look good.

    Dang, I just looked at my PDF for the APG, and you are correct. Stupid Archives of Nethys, and d20pfsrd show it in Ultimate Campaign.

    It is good to go then.

    Yeah you've gotta be careful on that. Both AoN and d20pfsrd will show the most recent reference something was in. For example they both list Alchemist's Fire and Acid Flasks as being Ultimate Equipment even though they were both in the CRB, as UE made full lists of items incorporating everything previous as well as new items.

    No problem! Just did not want to be eliminated from the running due to AoN. :D


    Talomyr here, checking in with my submission, Celeste Naevirion. She is a half-elf diviner of the foresight subschool. My intention is to multi-class her rogue (burglar) and eventually make my way to Arcane Trickster.

    @DM Papa.DRB - What's your stance on using starting gold to craft items? In my case, as the character is created I scribed 3 scrolls for a total of 37.5 gp. If that is not alright by you, no worries, I'll just go in and redo those items in question along with the requisite math.


    @Talomyr - I would rather not use craft for starting items. Sorry,

    -- david


    No worries, I'll just go back and drop the scrolls and craft them in play if I'm fortunate enough to be selected.

    Look Ahead: Flik will be continuing to develop his knowledge skills and ability to support the party. Starting at 2nd level, he will be able to deal with magic traps. Starting at 5th level, he will be able to fill in any skill gaps in the party.

    Description/Personality:

    Flik is a personable gnome with black eyes and hair the color of indigo ink. He is usually seen lugging around a knapsack full of old paperback books. He is quick with kind words and loves trading stories and gossip. He loves travel, but more than that he loves all of the communities in Varisia that he has gotten to know over the years.


    History:

    Flik has spent his adult life wandering from Riddleport to Korvosa, but his favorite places to stop were the small town like Roderic's Cove. He'd set up shop in the corner of the inn and stay for weeks, loaning books to all of the children in the town. Finally, the innkeeper would shoo him out, and he'd be on to the next town, where he would lend his wares to the youth and trade news and stories for more used books. He would say that he knew most of the townsfolk in the country well, after years and years of wandering southern Varisia.

    While he would only admit it to his closest confidants, Flik is a bit haunted by some unusual occurrences on his journeys. At times, he will be leaving one town and suddenly seem to be entering another, with no memory of the journey between. He has also experienced visions of strange buildings in the distance that disappear when he draws close to them. So far, he has been able to discount these visions as the result of fatigue or atmospheric conditions.
    [ooc]I am flexible on the campaign trait I take. I think that Audrahri's Ally or Intrigued by Thassilon would also be easy matches for my backstory.

    Color me interested, a question I raise is that you bring up in a spoiler at the end spheres of power. I've no intention to learn a whole new system, given that this wasn't explicitly mentioned, are you using that, or was it just a consideration?


    A consideration. Not using for this AP.


    I am also interested in this.

    Description
    Gabrielle is a tall, well built varisian woman, dark haired and with piercing blue eyes. Her armour is decorated with tokens from her travels, feathers, small maps, beads and other items and she is often seen sketching maps or pictures of monuments, people and places she meets along the trail.

    Personality
    Gabrielle is young, impetuous, keen and full of life. She wants nothing more than to see the world, explore all of its nooks and crannies and meet interesting new people. She is the first up in the morning and the last to bed, often spending hours watching the stars turn overhead.

    History
    Gabrielle was born to a family of travelling Varisians. Her mother was a Harrow practitioner, her father a wanderer by the name of Casomir Gallonica who claimed to be on a quest to stop Karzoug from waking up. He left her with nothing but her name and a whole host of stories of Runelords, Giants and strange magic. When she was blessed by the Flames of Desna one mid Winter festival she decided it was time to learn more about her past. Kissing her parents goodbye she decided to start where her father told her it all began, the small town of Roderic's Cove.

    Looking Ahead
    Gabrielle will be staying as a single classed Oracle. She will be primarily a spell casting support and healer character with a sideline in melee.

    This is Digger's submission. I live in Brooklyn, so EST. Will fill in the fluff today.

    Grand Lodge

    If this is still recruiting, here is my idea:

    Name:
    Harlow Tallfellow

    Description:

    Harlow is a local, with a fresh-faced look marred by the full set of tattoos from neck to sternum depicting a war between Azata and Daemon, the main part on his chest showing a Bralani descending spearpoint first in to a Pit-lords' chest. Cleanshaven. Bright blue eyes, blond and loosely curled hair. He stands 4 foot tall and about 35 pounds.

    History

    Harlow is a Halfling: One of a relatively self-important family of Halfling, who consider themselves some of the most talented brewers in Halfling society. He probably would have been just like any other Halfling if his family hadn't been run out of their homes by local giants, forcing them to abandon the comforts and cheer of a living place. Since then, he's trained and studied to defend himself, in the hopes of returning the favor to the giants. Hearing of the mobilisation of giants, he's decided to come himself.

    Personality

    Harlow is cheery, sometimes a little impudent and likely to engage in friendly banter with almost anyone. He likes creature comforts, money and things that make his life better, but he isn't afraid of hard work to accomplish what he needs.

    Looking Ahead

    Harlow will be proceeding in to Bard Archivist at level 4 and 5, then in to Dragon Disciple.
