Favoured Class Bonus - +3 Skill Points

Azana is a thin, almost gangly looking woman, her dark skin covered in vivid purple tattoos across her body. The tattoos run in a pattern - on one half, swirling across the left side of her face, across the right side of her body and then down the left legs are intricate swirls and whorls of colour. On the right side of her face, left part of her body and right leg are the sacred blessings of her people, prayers and charms of protection and luck. Even the palms of her hands and soles of her feet are covered.

Azana’s appearance is a little unusual - the touch of strange blood in her makeup gives her a strong, unique look. Her face is soft and calm, her jaw bone human, but her eyes are deep and intense. She shaves her hair, to expose the tattoos there, further adding to her odd look in most people's eyes.

She wears a long coat for the most part, with leather padding, and easy to move outfits beneath. Although she owns them she almost never wears boots or shoes unless something makes her, instead preferring to keep her connection to the earth. She wears four studs in each year, running along their length, usually silver and lapis.

She smells of cherry perfume, when she can, and nothing at all when she can’t (thanks to Prestidigitation) and speaks in a mezzo-soprano voice with a Northern England accent.

Azana is kind, energetic and lively. She tends to speak before she thinks or considers action, but most people tend not to take offence once they understand she means no offense. She simply doesn’t consider other people as much as she might want to. Still, she genuinely cares about helping people, and uses her odd powers to do just that.

Azana feels her mixed blood strongly. She's proud of her orc heritage, proud of who she is to the point where she demanded the tattoos of her people across her body. This is most obvious in the flip side of her ability - her desire to avenge those who are wronged. Certain spells and abilities do not work well on her, as she simply turns them around on the attacker. Her pride in herself is quite strong.

With her odd background, Azana doesn’t have the best understand of the pre-fall world. She can sometimes come off as naive and curious to others, as most of her understanding of the world comes filtered through TV.

Despite that, she prefers to hang back in a battle, helping her allies and hindering her enemies more than anything. She prefers to use long range skills and spells when she can, closing as little as possible. She knows she doesn’t have the strength or defence for close combat, and instead prefers to be useful.

Azana was born on Earth. This comes as a surprise to the few who know a Half-Orc when they see one. Despite her favouring her Human side she certainly has something off about her. Most people on Earth simply wrote it off as an exotic bloodline, with maybe some Eastern or African heritage. They were partially correct, it simply came from a greater distance than most.

England has a lot of ancient artifacts with strange stories and unusual uses. They plundered the world for them for centuries. Some of them still contain traces of their original owners.

So, when with the advances in genetic technology and artificial insemination technology became more public, some of the people who knew of those artifacts began to ask questions. What would possibly happen when some of that ancient blood was brought into the modern world…?

One of the answers was Azana. Her mother was one of the scientists, willing to experiment on herself and wishing to keep the child as much of a secret as possible. The pregnancy was rough. Most of the other fetus’ proved...unviable. But Azana was eventually born, healthy and whole and not entirely human.

Her early life was...odd, although naturally she didn’t know any different. Mostly it involved testing,and education,and trying to find what made her different. She had a few cosmetic surgeries as well, making her seem more human, but it wasn’t until she was a teenager that her unusual abilities began to kick in.

It began with the ley-lines.

England is an ancient land, and part of its heritage was the massive ley-lines that ran through the land. They were said to have powered the ancient magics of the land, but no one truly believed them to be real. Except Azana could feel them. Her whole life she knew certain places were...better. There was a little one at the end of the Institutes gardens, for example. When she was taken on a field trip once, she went to the Stone Circle of Hethpool. It felt...powerful.

But once she could see them, she could also start to use them. With the power of the lines awoke a certain knowledge of magic and might. And spells...well, the Institute was much more interested in those. She was given access to the ancient records, ancient tomes and manuscripts. Her ability to read magic allowed her to understand, and learn, several old tongues. Among other things...

Access to the ley-lines gave Azana the knowledge of spells, but it took practice to actually use them. More, different ley-lines gave access to different spells, different knowledge, different techniques.

So Azana began travelling the world. Not, of course, on her own. Her trips were very specially arranged, and she was kept from the public as much as possible. Her knowledge grew the more places she visited.

And it was one one of these visits that the zombie apocalypse began…
Azana’s entourage tried to protect her, but they were mostly scientists, researchers. Not armed guards. Azana’s own powers were impressive, but limited in what they could do. They held out in the hotel they had been staying in. With the lower floor sealed off and access to the kitchens it was easy to wait for rescue.

But rescue never came. Eventually the little enclave was running low on food, the kitchen of the hotel long since either eaten or spoiled. Most of the group left to find food. Two days later the hotel fell. Survivors came searching for food, and refused to believe there wasn’t any left. The noise brought zombies. Both sides fell to the small horde, but Azana was able to escape.

Searching for the rest of her group, she wandered, and instead came across a strange mansion...

Jon, you are rolling for your NPCs money. You have 3,000 gp to have for yourself, or was it 4?

Oh yes, lots of fun scenes!

Jon or should I say Azana, you are next through the portal!

Does the NPC have to be an NPC class? You mentioned Bard? I was thinking Sorcerer wife or lover perhaps.

3d6 ⇒ (5, 6, 3) = 14
3d6 ⇒ (3, 5, 6) = 14
3d6 ⇒ (2, 6, 5) = 13
3d6 ⇒ (3, 5, 4) = 12
3d6 ⇒ (3, 4, 2) = 9
3d6 ⇒ (6, 4, 1) = 11
3d6 ⇒ (4, 5, 6) = 15

15, 14, 14, 13, 12, 11

Nope it does not need to have an NPC class. So far our NPCs are fighter, expert, and commoner... lol! You can pick any other classes.

Nice I'm pretty much done. I will finish the NPC in the next day or so. I was able to make a new alias but I couldn't select a pic kept getting an error from Paizo. I will join gameplay tonight I think.

HP: 2d10 ⇒ (5, 10) = 15

Dark Archive

Are you full?

We are not full! Create a character and join us!

Dark Archive

3d6 ⇒ (4, 1, 2) = 7
3d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 2) = 9
3d6 ⇒ (4, 5, 2) = 11

3d6 ⇒ (4, 4, 4) = 12
3d6 ⇒ (6, 5, 2) = 13
3d6 ⇒ (4, 6, 6) = 16

3d6 ⇒ (6, 5, 3) = 14

So, after 3 +2s, 18, 16, 15, 12 11, 9.

My first thought was something something guns shooting, like a gunslinger or a fighter. But then I was worried it would just be a one-trick pony and I'd get bored.

Then I was thinking about a cleric, but clerics don't get Channel energy that much, and they best way to get rid of a zombie hoard is not from in the middle of it.

I actually have a level 3 Evoker that I've been trying to get to see the light of day again, and I really like the idea of sending waves after wave of damage spells into some nasty undead from a safe distance. =)

Also, you mentioned that crafting would be important, and it's very much a crafty build.

We could always use some craft shenanigans.

Azana is intended to be more buff/debuff and healing, as a Witch, so an Arcane Cannon would be cool.

Scarab Sages

I'm yer huckleberry.

Now what's all this I here about an NPC? There's a lot of talk about it in this thread but I don't see it mentioned in the initial post?

Is that still a thing we're doing? If so, which classes have all been selected?

Also, is the NPC gonna post on their own? I need an alias for them? (I mean, I totally already have one picked out, so it's no probs, Imma just asking. =)

3d6 ⇒ (2, 5, 2) = 9
3d6 ⇒ (5, 5, 4) = 14
3d6 ⇒ (6, 6, 3) = 15
3d6 ⇒ (4, 3, 5) = 12
3d6 ⇒ (3, 2, 6) = 11
3d6 ⇒ (3, 3, 5) = 11
3d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 4) = 11
3d6 ⇒ (5, 4, 1) = 10

Gonna spitball some stuff if this is still goin', I've wanted to do a zombie apocalypse game for a while.

Evoker cannon is welcome!

You come in with a level 1 NPC. Most classes are open still.
You can post for your NPC or create its own alias your choice. If your main dies and your NPC has hero classes it can then easily become your next character.

Kyrie you can join the gameplay thread, you can already be in the mansion or following behind.

Scarab Sages


Gonna be busy today, but I'll post as soon as I can.

Redundant question: Our NPC has to be an NPC class, yeah? Or can it be anything?
Follow up redundancy: If I plan to take a Warrior NPC level, can I just take a Fighter level in case he has to step up anyway?

ALSO! Character picture has been updated! Apparently the first one wasn't working how it should be. So I killed it as a lesson to the others.

(Wow. Google fell down on this one and DuckDuckGo picked up the ball. Go figure!)

The NPC can be any class. Fighter class is taken, you could take another martial class instead of warrior.


Scarab Sages

Dice for NPC!

3d6 ⇒ (4, 2, 4) = 10
3d6 ⇒ (5, 3, 2) = 10
3d6 ⇒ (6, 5, 2) = 13

3d6 ⇒ (5, 4, 6) = 15
3d6 ⇒ (2, 1, 1) = 4
3d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 1) = 8

3d6 ⇒ (2, 3, 1) = 6


17 15 12 10 8 6

Sorry for the delay. Work and things got me busy. Finishing up now.

No worries, I have been having troubles making time to post.

Still have room?

If so:

Stat 1: 3d6 ⇒ (1, 6, 4) = 11
Stat 2: 3d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 6) = 13
Stat 3: 3d6 ⇒ (2, 1, 5) = 8
Stat 4: 3d6 ⇒ (3, 5, 5) = 13
Stat 5: 3d6 ⇒ (1, 5, 1) = 7
Stat 6: 3d6 ⇒ (1, 4, 2) = 7
Stat 7: 3d6 ⇒ (4, 6, 3) = 13

Ok, so a four point buy.

I was thinking maybe a brave knight (probably Cavelier, that class has always interested me), with his squire for an NPC.

Sure, let me know once you have it all fleshed out Steffanio!

Is there a way I can boost those numbers up at all?

Ok, so I'm thinking a Level 1 (that's the right level right?) Human Order of the Shroud (the order that's designed to be good vs. undead) Cavalier. His NPC would be a young boy, who is a Human Fighter, who would act as his squire. He would have been sent over to find the lost adventurers, probably by a powerful Wizard's guild, who have the resources to find them, and send him there. Once this has approval I'll start working on his stats.

We're level 3.

Also, excitingly for your stats, we can grab a template and some pretty hefty magic items.

If you still have a spot I have an dwarven inquisitor I made for this type of game long ago.


Stats: 3d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 2) = 9
Stats: 3d6 ⇒ (2, 6, 4) = 12
Stats: 3d6 ⇒ (3, 5, 3) = 11
Stats: 3d6 ⇒ (6, 6, 1) = 13
Stats: 3d6 ⇒ (1, 2, 5) = 8
Stats: 3d6 ⇒ (3, 6, 3) = 12
Stats: 3d6 ⇒ (4, 1, 3) = 8

How.... average. 2 minus 1 and 3 plus 1

I thought the starting bonus was a magic item OR a template? Or did I read that wrong?

It changed, I believe.

Here is a small summary of all the things GM Wolf has said we get.

GM Wolf stated (over multiple posts) in recruitment:
I will let you either add 2 to three ability scores or reroll. (I chose the +2 to three ability scores).
You start off at 3rd level.
You get an NPC. That NPC gets starting gold for your class at lvl 1.
You get 4000gp to start.
2 background skills / level
1 background feat every even level (item creation/skill)
You can take up to 2 drawbacks for additional traits.
Feat Tax adjustments are okay.
Choice of 1 of 3 boost items (Template, super power, paragon, or other suggestions added to character / a magical item worth 10000 or less / or a spirit animal)

In Discussion Thread:
1 Artifact + 1 legacy item and 2 more magical items worth 3000 or less, or, 1 artifact and 3 magical items worth 12k or less, no item being over 7k.
Free Mundane items.

These however have possibly changed due to the flavor of our start in the mansion. We would need to hear from GM Wolf on these and what you'd keep or not keep.

Thanks, that's very helpful.

GM Wolf, I sent you a PM for your perusal.

(actually it was I while ago,I just forgot to tell you :P)

Catching up...

Another PM coming your way.

Has someone already taken the Barding of Pleated Light? Cause if not, that's very tempting. Then again, I might just stick with my template.

I did not.

I would stick with the template, but no one has taken the boarding of pleaded light.

GM Wolf wrote:

Yeah, that's what I'm going to do.

Steffanio you still around?!?

GM Wolf wrote:

Yes indeed. I just need to do equipment, then port everything from the sheet to my alias.
