Ok, I've decided to pull the trigger on starting a Jade Regent game.

Some background on the AP:

-this is the "Tien Xia" AP, but it starts in Sandpoint in Varisia

-this AP features a caravan subsystem- I know subsystems can be tricky and slow things down on PBP, but I feel it's worth it so please do not apply for this game if you are bored by, uninterested in, or do not enjoy these kinds of downtime- X-builder mechanics

Some background on what I'm looking for:

-I'm going to take 5 characters, not 6

-I'll be making the decision based on several factors including party balance, character background, and mechanically interesting builds

-I'm looking more for novel character concepts- I don't want an optimized controller wizard, optimized archer, or two handed brute that have been played a million times, so I'll preference builds that are unique or less played

+ pace of play is 1 post per day minimum

What to post to apply;

1. Completed character 1st level build
2. Character advancement outline (class levels-archetypes and key feats- "key" being the ones that are integral to make the build work)
3. Backstory (at least a paragraph) tying your character into Sandpoint and to the main NPCs (see the Player's Guide)

Character creation:
1. 20 points point buy
2. Allowed races: core, plus tengu, samsaran, and other Paizo by approval
3. 2 traits + 1 Jade Regent campaign trait
4. Allowed classes, feats, ECT: all Paizo published (but be warned this book was before gunslinger so there is no support for firearms in the course of play)

I'll make decisions June 27th at 8 AM central.

player's guide for reference

I’m definitely interested. I’ll be back when I have a concept. Would a Wayang be allowed? I played one in a JR game a while back that fizzled quickly, might revisits that character (I think he was an unRogue).

Allowing Samsarans means I cannot help but put something together for this, thank you for the opportunity to build.

I'm thinking something spirity. Probably spiritualist, shaman, or witch.

Yes, I will allow Wayang

Dotting for interest. :)

Finally Jade Regent! That's a rarity around here! Dotting with interest :)

About races: is fetchling acceptable?

I will have my character up tonight. Are there any classes you don't like/don't want to see?

Hm. What about kitsune?

Also, what is your expected activity/posting rate?

Kitsune is fine as well.

Post rate is at least once per day.

And no, there are no classes writ large I'm against- just preferably not the stale "optimized" builds of those classes.

I'll definitely be submitting a character for this. I think I'll go with a flying blade swashbuckler following Desna charming enemies with his blades and a crush on Ameiko.

Can we pick a drawback?

I'll say no on drawbacks, can get a bit ridiculous with them.

I'm interested! I'd like to submit an Ulfen/Tien Steelblood with the Phoenix bloodline, who fights with a shield and katana.

I think the build would be really fun to play with the Bulette Charge Style feat tree--trampling back and forth across the battlefield!

is oread and its subraces allowed

I've been wanting to play a Teisatsu Vigilante, I'll work something up.

I would say no on oreads (as well as the other plane touched like Ifrit, Tiefling, Aasimar)-

The goal with races other than core is to have those that have deep ties to Tien Xia (or Asian folk lore that it's based on)- so i'll add Nezumi (ratfolk) as approved as well-

So, core- tengu, samsaran, ratfolk, kitsune, saying, and if there's other appropriate with that frame in mind I've forgotten.

Awesome, working on my application now. Eldritch Archer Magus or a ranged Inquisitor is what I am leaning at the moment.

Tenchi is Ameiko's younger brother, and unlike Ameiko Tenchi has heavily bought into his Tianese heritage. Emboldened by the stories his mother told of Samurai, battles, dragons, and honor, and undertook the path of the samurai. His mother used her connections to have him apprenticed to a samurai to teach him what he would need to know.

Tenchi was gone from Sandpoint during the events of previous APs, and has just recently returned, itching to prove his blade gainst multiple foes, Tenchi opted to become an adventurer, against the advice of his older sister. She wouldn't understand the desire, however, to prove his blade against challenging foes.

I present to you, Jiro Fire-Raven, a Steelblood sword-and-board caravan guard who's spent several seasons traveling with Sandru's caravan. I haven't yet added his backstory or build advancement but I'll get to that in the next day or two. It will center on Bulette Charge Style & trampling in general, plus some intimidation feats if I have any to spare.

My other concept was a dwarf beast-rider cavalier from Zavaten Gura, who would ride a mammoth and be a Beast-Rider-Gendarme4/Evangelist1/Battle-HeraldX so please let me know if you'd like to see that instead/as well!


What's starting gold?

This is the Samsaran Inquisitor build I was stirring up. Haven't played an archer in so long I figured I would break one out and Inquisitor sounds interesting. Oof, forgot how heavily feat taxed it is but I mentioned that in the roadmap.

Talios Yintargo Roadmap:

*I honestly find Zen Archer somewhat boring but it circumvents A LOT of the feat tax for being an effective archer opening up more choices for the odd-level feats. I know you don't want the optimal builds for each class but would me dipping in to it for a few levels be viable before going in to Inquisitor. Without it the roadmap is pretty much already set in stone, wanting to be an archer Inquisitor.

3rd: Precise Shot
5th: Rapid Shot (If dipping Zen Archer then Deific Obedience into Evangelist)
7th: Many Shot (If dipping Zen Archer then Weapon Focus (Longbow))
9th: Savior's Arrow

Will likely make some stat adjustments depending on which direction I go.

Talios Yintargo Background:

Talios is an Inquisitor of Erastil who enjoys the countryside but is keenly aware of the dangers of Varisia. In his attempt to protect that simple way of life he ran afoul of a group of goblins that nearly overwhelmed him. It was Koya Mvashti that found him battered and bloody at the gates of Sandpoint. She healed his wounds and he promised to pass the favor along, seeking the gift of healing from his deity.

He spent much of his time talking with Koya when not patrolling the roads, often speaking of the brief glimpses of his past lives. Their similar age and enjoyment of heroic stories made them kindred spirits.

His past lives all seem to have one clear consistency, serving Erastil regardless of the locale.

I've always wanted to use a combat patrol build and considering Jade Regent has all these important NPCs, a protection build that isn't just Bodyguard would be appropriate.
She has Pariah instead of weapon familiarity racial feature, but that is flavored to be her bad personality not because Sandpoint is especially anti half-orc

Niska Mvashti touched many lives during her life, especially that of Shuzi's mother, Feliri. The Varisian was the single greatest reason why she was able to work past her orcish tendencies and become a respectable Sandpoint chef. Feliri made sure to instill a reverence for Niska and the elderly while also making sure that her daughter realized that might doesn't always make right. While Shuzi did choose a more martial career choice, she still made sure to honor the woman who helped her mother by being there to accept Niska's last request: ensure Koya's safety incase the elderly priestess were to ever go on a grand journey, but the chances of that are minuscule...right?

Hi Oxnard! I present Akatsu Horami, an ex-monk and younger sibling of Ameiko. His profile has the background, sheet and plans for the future. Thanks for running it!

Liberty's Edge

Hey there! This looks like a lot of fun. I'm working on a character, but did have a question. Would you be interested in using the Background Skills rules?

I will have a dot for this later. I am thinking I will be an unchained monk that is a student under the mysterious ranger.

Oh good, kitsune. I’ve been hoping to play one. I’m looking at building a swashbuckler.

Since you want characters with a connection to Tian Xia I think I'll make a ninja instead of a flying blade, though he'll still use star knives and follow Desna. Ninja can't pick the knife master archtype right?

Got a Kitsune Bard in mind for this.

I give you Hisakawa Mitsuru, kitsune rogue! My concept for her is a good-hearted charlatan and prankster. Really leaning in on the trickster and shapeshifting aspect, along with more curiosity than sense when it comes to magic.

Fox Shape: You can take the form of a fox whose appearance is static and cannot be changed each time you assume this form. Your bite attack’s damage is reduced to 1d3 points of damage on a hit, but you gain a +10 racial bonus on Disguise checks made to appear as a fox. Changing from kitsune to fox shape is a standard action. This ability otherwise functions as beast shape II, and your ability scores change accordingly.

Realistic Likeness: You can precisely mimic the physical features of any individual you have encountered. When you use your racial change shape ability, you can attempt to take the form of an individual, granting you a +10 circumstance bonus on Disguise checks made to fool others with your impersonation.

Weapon Finesse: With a light weapon, elven curve blade, rapier, whip, or spiked chain made for a creature of your size category, you may use your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier on attack rolls. If you carry a shield, its armor check penalty applies to your attack rolls. Natural weapons are considered light weapons.

Agile (Ex) Kitsunes get a +2 racial bonus on Acrobatics checks.

Bonus Rogue Talent Rogue: The rogue gains 1/6 of a new rogue talent.

Change Shape (Su) Kitsune can assume the appearance of a specific single human form of the same sex.

Fast-Talker You had a knack at getting yourself into trouble as a child, and as a result developed a silver tongue at an early age. You gain a +1 trait bonus on Bluff checks, and Bluff is always a class skill for you.

Finesse Training (Ex) At 1st level, a rogue gains Weapon Finesse as a bonus feat. In addition, starting at 3rd level, she can select any one type of weapon that can be used with Weapon Finesse (such as rapiers or daggers). Once this choice is made, it cannot be changed. Whenever she makes a successful melee attack with the selected weapon, she adds her Dexterity modifier instead of her Strength modifier to the damage roll. If any effect would prevent the rogue from adding her Strength modifier to the damage roll, she does not add her Dexterity modifier. The rogue can select a second weapon at 11th level and a third at 19th level.

Low-Light Vision Kitsune can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.

Low-Light Vision (Ex) You can see twice as far as humans in low illumination. Characters with low-light vision have eyes that are so sensitive to light that they can see twice as far as normal in dim light. Low-Light Vision is color vision. A spellcaster with low-light vision can read a scroll as long as even the tiniest candle flame is next to her as a source of light. Characters with low-light vision can see outdoors on a moonlit night as well as they can during the day.

Magical Expertise (Ex) A counterfeit mage adds half her level to Disable Device checks to disarm magical traps, Perception checks to find magical traps, and Use Magic Device checks to activate scrolls and wands. A counterfeit mage can use Disable Device to disarm magic traps.

Natural Weapons (Ex) Kitsune have a bite attack in their natural form.

Rescued (Shalelu) At some point in the past, you had a terrifyingly close brush with death. Maybe a goblin nearly killed you during an attack on the town, or perhaps a building struck by a giant's boulder collapsed around you. Whatever the peril was, you would have certainly died if not for the swift actions of Shalelu, who intervened just in time to save your life. You've never forgotten this, and remain fiercely loyal to her. Perhaps even more importantly, the method in which she saved you seems to have had an impact on your own skills. Shalelu saved you by pulling you to safety while simultaneously defeating the peril that almost did you in, and as a result, you gain a +1 trait bonus on Acrobatics checks and Acrobatics is a class skill for you. In addition, you gain a +1 trait bonus on all attack rolls against foes that threaten your savior.

Sneak Attack (Ex) If you can catch an opponent when he is unable to defend himself effectively from your attack, you can strike a vital spot for extra damage. Your attack deals 1d6 points of extra damage anytime your target would be denied a Dexterity bonus to AC, or when you flank your target. Should you score a critical hit with a sneak attack, this extra damage is not multiplied. Ranged attacks can count as sneak attacks only if the target is within 30 feet. With a weapon that deals nonlethal damage, you can make a sneak attack that deals nonlethal damage instead of lethal damage. You cannot use a weapon that deals lethal damage to deal nonlethal damage in a sneak attack, not even with the usual -4 penalty. You must be able to see the target well enough to pick out a vital spot and must be able to reach such a spot. You cannot sneak attack while striking a creature with concealment.

Superior Shapeshifter (Ex) Some talented kitsune take more naturally to shapeshifting than magic, and develop that gift. You gain Fox Shape as a bonus feat at 1st level, ignoring its prerequisites. This racial trait replaces kitsune magic.

Theoretical Magician You've studied more magic than what you can actually perform. You gain a +2 trait bonus on Spellcraft checks, or a +3 bonus if you aren't a spellcaster.

I intend to stick with Unchained Rogue for the duration. I am taking both the Counterfeit Mage and Scout archetypes, since they're compatible and fit the concept of the character. Some key feats: Fox Shape, Realistic Likeness (both of which I'm taking at level 1), Swift Kitsune Shapechanger, Startling Shapechange, and Vulpine Pounce. I also plan to take thematic rogue talents such as Minor/Major Magic and False Friend.

Born and raised in an enclave of Minkaian kitsune settled in Magnimar, Hisakawa Mitsuru's life has always been infused with magic she has no talent for but is endlessly fascinated by. While Mitsuru is, even for her kind, an incredibly skilled shapeshifter, the art of spellcasting is one she has never been able to grasp, no matter how hard she tried to imitate the words and gestures of the human spellcasters she studied so closely.

Even though that dedication never let her cast spells on her own, she did pick up a few useful talents, such as being able to control her shapeshifting to such an incredible degree that she could impersonate a wizard long enough (and well enough) to steal a wand or scroll. Endless hours of practice (and quite a few mishaps) taught her enough to be able to "trick" a wand into obeying her. Sometimes, anyway.

Mitsuru felt such a rush of confidence that she immediately became convinced she had what it took to become an adventurer and thrill seeker. Unfortunately for her, she decided that attending the Swallowtail Festival in Sandpoint would be a wonderful way to get her adventuring career started. Mitsuru was woefully unprepared for the dangers ahead of her, and when the festival was attacked by goblins, she found herself trapped and bleeding in a burning building, desperately trying to force a wand to do something, anything to save her from the monsters that were closing in on her.

That was when Shalelu appeared, a flash of leather and steel, cutting through the goblins as if they were nothing but damp vellum, before hauling Mitsuru to safety. In addition to the undying gratitude Mitsuru has for the elf saving her life, she finds herself fascinated by Shalelu, and not just for the magical power the ranger wields.

As a result, Mitsuru has stayed in Sandpoint ever since, though it's not really home. She hasn't been bold enough to approach Shalelu in either her natural or human form, but spends enough time as a fox that people joke that the ranger has picked up a familiar.

Correct- knife master modifies Trapfinding which ninja does not get so it's not legal for a ninja.

Some already asked this but it might have gotten lost in the posts. Are Background Skills gonna be in this?

Jiro was born in Sandpoint, the child of a Minkaian caravan guard and an Ulfen shieldmaiden. Mostly growing up on longships sailing up and down the Varisian coast, Jiro has developed something of a reputation for being a bleeding heart but also a riotously fun carouser when on shore.

An incident in Kalsgard several seasons ago saw Jiro in a hurry to get out of town, and the caravan of one Sandru Vhiski, with whom the half-Tien warrior has traveled for the past several seasons.

dotting... I've played a bit of this before (book 1, some of book 2)

(possibly) Aldori Swashbuckler OR Unchained Rogue on the run is coming up. I'll hook him into the NPC who is a caravneer. Name escapes me.

Here's Sabs for all your healing needs. She's mostly a healbot with a little bit of tank and a little bit of blaster. I'll have to adjust her a bit to meet your build guidelines but she won't change greatly.

This is Chesca Wyndamere's submission: Jalila "Moon Stone", Shoanti Shaman (Life) with her Owl spirit animal named Kachi. I just have the backstory to flesh out and will edit the profile once it's done. I've made her primarily a healer/support character with an ability to fight from range.

Thank you! I'll put my background ranks into Perform (Act) and Sleight of Hand, for a +5 and +8 respectively. I can't edit the post but my profile here has been updated.

I'm also thinking that Spring Attack will probably also be a pretty important feat for this build, to make combat in fox shape more viable (since Tiny creatures have to actually enter the space of other creatures to attack, which provokes even with a 5-foot step).

Edit: I apologize for not including this in the original post as well, but here is a stat block for when Mitsuru is in fox shape. It's much briefer since it doesn't need to repeat her inventory, feats, etc. It is also in the profile for this alias.

Do you have thoughts about the other two campaign traits from Varisia, Birthplace of Legends?

Tuilindondur is undoubtably of Varisian birth on his human Fathers side. He bears a Varisian birth tattoo of a sword on his right forearm - in fact his Father tattooing the infant was the incident that triggered the break up between his father and his Elvish Mother.

Being a child of two races in Elvish society is hard, and his mother did not give him love sufficient to fill the gaps. His social skills suffered considerably, further hurting his ability to please both his elvish community and mother. At 17 he decided to run away to find his Father, hoping it would be better... it was not. Varisians are perhaps even less understanding of half elves than the Elves. Fortunately he crossed paths with Sandru and the two became best friends.

Over the last 5 years Sandru taught him a love of swordsmanship, Varisian lore and his father's language. Life with Sandru, whose wit and tongue are as quick as his sword has helped some social skills develop, including the Varisian talent of bluff and trickery. Like most Varisians he's also learned a slew of skills that tend to larceny. Sandrus criminal Sczarni friends were more than happy to instruct the Quick witted and Quick Handed young man in more 'profitable skills'.

Throughout this time he's been a member of Sandru's caravan or trading trips. The older Sandru grumbles good naturedly that it might do 'Teodor' (his adopted Varisian name) some good to splash out on his own a little and try a journey with new faces.

@Oxnard- I saw that you weren't planning on using any of the plane-touched races but I'm wondering if you'd make an exception if an idea was interesting/cool enough? I'm not entirely sure what class/build I'd go with but I really like the idea of an oni-spawn tiefling who, because of their heritage, is intensely curious about oni and kamas, and wants to travel to Tien Xia to learn more about them; probably would be wholly or partially a class that deals with spirits (like a shaman, or maybe a geminate invoker barbarian or something). Thinking probably foster child for the campaign trait. Also (in case that idea is a no go) would you allow Nagaji? Their link to nagas make them seem like a natural fit?


I would like to also apply. I have never played this, but have heard really good things. The overland travel theme does sound epic!

I have wanted to play a Magus for some time; unique and new...sounds like a sporting challenge!

Thank you for running!

I’m thinking I’m probably going to go for an Arcane Trickster build. Ninja/Sorcerer probably makes the most sense flavor-wise, but I really prefer INT casters to CHA casters, so I might go unRogue/Wizard(or Magus. Or Sage Sorc).
