Sorry to hear that! With my first on the way, I'm already getting kind of nervous about it.

I'm on number 4 now. It's awesome. There are Moments (like these) and moments (at 3am that involve puke and poo). They are utterly eclipsed by first smiles, and first words, and cuddles.


Okay. I have looked through all the applications so far. There were 11 in total. After much weighing I've decided to do two tables. Table 1 will run in this campaign. This group will consist of the following:

Saleem Haladi
Phntm888
Daniel Stewart
Hugo Nervin
Pixie Rogue
Raff Keegan

Feel free to start posting in the discussion thread. Please leave the gameplay thread empty for now.

Table 2 Will play in another campaign which I will link here ASAP
This group will consist of:

Baros
Diaz ex Machina
Vrog Skyreaver
Gyza Danver
Eline

Nice


Awesome! Looking forward to a great game.


Awesome Sauce.


Thanks for the selection! I'll post into Discussion as soon as it's open.


Wooo! Excitement. Just waiting for the discussion thread to go live. =)


Great! I can't wait to start!

Just one question: are we still able to make minor adjustment to our characters before starting the adventure (nothing that will change the concept of course)?

Have a good time everyone!


Thank you so much! Great applications everyone. Will hop into discussions once it's up and running. :)

Varook is ready and roaring to go!!! Thanks for including him in your game!!

While we wait for the discussion thread to become available, here's a thought for the first table. I did not nail down my character because I like to find what the table needs and try to fit that. Looking at Saleem, Aramil, Varook, Hugo, and Raff, it appears that we have three to five melee types, two or three possible healers, one or two skill monkeys, and no dedicated spellcasters. (Those classifications are obviously very dependent on the builds, of course.)

I don't want to bury this thread in discussion, just pose the question for the discussion when the thread opens - should I be looking at a spellcaster? I've been playing around with making that originally-proposed emancipated halfling ranger into an emancipated halfling angelic sorcerer instead. She's weak on skills (though not terrible), strong on Charisma and Dexterity, weak to average on Strength and Intelligence, and brings cleric-type healing (if not the quantity of a cleric) to the party. I haven't taken any time to select spells beyond the bloodline yet.

I like making my characters with input from those at the table, so I'm looking forward to hearing what you think. I'm a big fan of session zero.


I'm going to take either the Wizard or Sorcerer multiclass at 2nd and then the other one with my 9th lvl racial feat, so I should have a decent breadth of arcane spells, although I plan to pick mostly utility and buff spells.


Hi! I'm hoping to make Aramil a dedicated spellcaster, but I made sure to have some melee versatility as well, just in case it proves to not be a viable option or something. That said, it certainly wouldn't hurt to have an additional spellcaster in the group if you'd rather make the Sorcerer than the Ranger.

I noticed Hugo is intending to take his Alchemist the healer route, and I have the soothe spell, so if you make the Angelic sorcerer, we can probably equal a Cleric between the three of us.

I think I need to get used to the new rules - with the changes to the classes, it's harder to know what roles are filled and what roles are lacking.

Now I'm considering doing something like Omari, taking a level of ranger and taking the sorcerer dedication feat. Or vice versa. Then she could be more viable in combat (she would be range-focused) and also have the healing and spellcasting, as Amaril is planning. I'm going to play with those ideas for a bit.

(Gotta admit, this is fun!)

Varook will be mostly fighter with a little rogue thrown in


I've also got lay on hands for infinite out of combat healing (given time). My FP are probably mostly going towards Cry of Destruction though.


It really is harder to tell based on roles. Bards get 9 levels of spellcasting, but they're very low on blast-type spells (appropriate for bards, but definitely a change for a full caster). Multiclassing is fairly easy, as well, and there's no more Armor Check Penalty, so you can cast spells in armor. If you want, you could go halfling ranger at level 1, then Sorcerer dedication at level 2. I think that makes for a pretty good character. We could definitely used some ranged combat ability, that's for sure.

One of the components of PF2 is that each class should be able to fill multiple roles. I'm looking forward to testing if the bard can truly be a primary spellcaster.

I saw a comment by someone that felt like they made a pretty passable magus with a bard. Not quite a primary spellcaster, but it made me stop and rethink things a bit.


Hey hey - so on talking composition we should be prety good on healing. We have three characters who can heal already and the game is supposed to be built to not require a cleric in every party.

That said if you did angelic bloodline that certainly wouldn't be wasted because there's a bunch of useful stuff there regardless. Another option is going primal with ranger and just raining death on your enemies from afar. Also some good battlefield control in that spell list which we don't have a ton of.

Your options are pretty wide open though, nice thing about six-person groups.

Looking at it, it would take a while for any real spellcasting to come online, so she wouldn't be useful as a spellcaster for a while. That said, y'all have sold me - I'm back to the original ranger build, slightly tweaked to make it a decent sorcerer multiclass (I think).

I don't have equipment and such ready yet, but I could throw a kit on her and be ready to go pretty quickly. Her background remains all in my head, so I guess there's that, too.


Playing around in Pathbuilder it looks like i will eventually have 7th level arcane spells as both a sorcerer and a wizard. (On a champion, how crazy is that?)


Pixie Rogue here. May I introduce Lenna "No last name, just Lenna.

There's work left to do, but she's basically ready to go.

And that's insane, Omari.


Oh yes, I needed to open the discussion thread, done now. If people want to form connections pre-game, please let me know as it will effect the campaign's start a bit.
