Deathlok's Anvil of Fire and Beyond! (Inactive)

Game Master Death-Lok

The heroes delve into a subterranean dungeon complex beneath the caldera of a dormant volcano in the Mindspin Mountains, where they must infiltrate the elite military academy that trains officers for the Storm Tyrant’s giant army.

Does the idea of invading a fire giant base sound fun to you? If so, this is the recruitment for you if you like high level play. Looking for 1-2 players. The players currently selected are:

Dwarven Barbarian 13
Human Cleric of Shelyn 13
Elven Rogue 13 (maybe)

Character creation rules:
Core Races only
25 point buy
Alignment: No evil.
Wealth: 108,000 gp (no more than 40k can be spent on one item) (I am aware this is the 12th level wealth level)
Background skills in effect
2 traits
Try not to dump stats - only one stat allowed lower than 10 and no lower than 8 after racial.

I know creating 13th level characters takes awhile so no need to create an alias - a summary character sheet with some personality quirks and physical description is sufficient. We want to start soon - so the sooner the better.



Some Q's
Elephant in the Room?
Class limitations, if any (ie occult? hybrid? Witches? The party as constructed looks core...)
Any limitations on available sources (ie no splats for example)
Drawback for an extra trait?
Are you planning to do vol 6 as well?

Some R's

No to Elephant in the Room
Class limitations: No summoner and I am not fond of classes with pets - you are powerful as is, do not need 4 more attacks from something else. I am looking for an arcane build (not bard - the cleric has bard buffs) and maybe a rogue, as we might have lost the elf.
Sources: PF only.
No drawbacks.
Yes to Vol 6.

Dark Archive

This is a rogue build I have up to ten that I could kick to thirteen for sure. I have a 13 magic user as well. I love both classes so would do either one!

Interested in a martial caster. Maybe Sword Binder wizard, maybe sorcerer Eldritch Knight.

Brown-Fur Transmuter could be fun, to turn the barbarian into a Saurian with MP3. Let me think on it.

Description: Edlin loves to play up on the “traditional appearance” of an elven wizard. He keeps his hair long and generally frizzy, tucked back behind his ears and underneath a wide-brimmed, pointed hat. He wears dark blue robes, trimmed with gold embroidery, with a leather bound grimoire attached to his belt alongside a spell component pouch. He does carry a longbow strapped to a well-made magical backpack with a quiver at his hip, and never goes anywhere without his staff, a dark-barked wooden weapon with subtle carvings on the upper whorls. His eyes are clear and light blue, and his skin appears fair and well-cared for against the weather.

Just need to finalize his spells prepared as well as drop some additional gold for known spells/scrolls.

Working on a Dwarf Sorcerer going Dragon Disciple :) He's crossblooded between Empyreal and Green Dragon. I should wrap it up by tonight, at the moment working on the background (no crunch yet).

Oh- I have an idea for an elven magus that I’ve been dying to play! Today is a busy day but I’ll try to get an outline and some fluff up sometime tonight.

This is, of course, extremely skeletal, but ...

Why take on 1 role when you could take on both?

Eldoran Amasdiel


Born in Trunau. His mother was passing through with a caravan but died in childbirth. An orphan, he lived in the gutter, becoming a rogue. When he lucked in to stealing a spellbook from another caravan, his talent for the arcane became apparent...

Having found a copy of The Book of Joy in his mother’s effects, he worships Calistria, as any true elf does; opportunist, vengeful and hedonistic…it fits him to a T.

6’1” and 139 lbs, a twig… Bright Amethyst eyes and black hair (cleanshaven). Dresses neat, well-organized (not unkempt). The only flaw in his classical elven features is a scar on his left cheek. He has tattoos on both arms

Character Notes:

He is curious to a fault
Dishonest whenever convenient
Why is he fighting the giants – they attacked his home (Trunau), and he will have (disproportionate) vengeance!

Race Abilities:

Low-Light Vision: Elves can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
Elven Immunities: Elves are immune to magic sleep effects and get a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against enchantment spells and effects.
Elven Magic: Elves receive a +2 racial bonus on caster level checks made to overcome spell resistance. In addition, elves receive a +2 racial bonus on Spellcraft checks made to identify the properties of magic items.
Keen Senses: Elves receive a +2 racial bonus on Perception checks.
Weapon Familiarity: Elves are proficient with longbows (including composite longbows), longswords, rapiers, and shortbows (including composite shortbows), and treat any weapon with the word “elven” in its name as a martial weapon.
Elven Arrogance: Some elves are so convinced of elven superiority, or else otherwise so xenophobic, that they have difficulty seeing the point in communicating with “lesser” races. Their racial bonus on saving throws against enchantments increases by 1 (to +3) against such effects from non-elf humanoids, but they begin play speaking only Elven, and if they have high Intelligence scores, they can select bonus languages from only Azlanti, Celestial, Draconic, and Sylvan.

Class Abilities:

Sneak Attack: If a rogue can catch an opponent when he is unable to defend himself effectively from her attack, she can strike a vital spot for extra damage.
The rogue’s attack deals extra damage anytime her target would be denied a Dexterity bonus to AC (whether the target actually has a Dexterity bonus or not), or when the rogue flanks her target. This extra damage is 1d6 at 1st level, and increases by 1d6 every 2 rogue levels thereafter. Ranged attacks can count as sneak attacks only if the target is within 30 feet. This additional damage is precision damage and is not multiplied on a critical hit.
With a weapon that deals nonlethal damage (such as a sap, unarmed strike, or whip), a rogue can make a sneak attack that deals nonlethal damage instead of lethal damage. She cannot use a weapon that deals lethal damage to deal nonlethal damage in a sneak attack—not even with the usual –4 penalty.
The rogue must be able to see the target well enough to pick out a vital spot and must be able to reach such a spot. A rogue cannot sneak attack while striking a creature with total concealment.
Bravado’s Blade (Ex): When a rake hits an opponent and deals sneak attack damage, she can forgo 1d6 points of that damage and make a free Intimidate check to demoralize the foe. For every additional 1d6 points of sneak attack damage she forgoes, she receives a +5 circumstance bonus on this check. This ability replaces trapfinding.
Finesse Training (Ex): At 1st level, a rogue gains Weapon Finesse as a bonus feat.

Arcane Bond (Ex or Sp): At 1st level, wizards form a powerful bond with an object or a creature. This bond can take one of two forms: a familiar or a bonded object. A familiar is a magical pet that enhances the wizard's skills and senses and can aid him in magic, while a bonded object is an item a wizard can use to cast additional spells or to serve as a magical item. Once a wizard makes this choice, it is permanent and cannot be changed. Rules for bonded items are given below, while rules for familiars are at the end of this section.
Wizards who select a bonded object begin play with one at no cost. Objects that are the subject of an arcane bond must fall into one of the following categories: amulet, ring, staff, wand, or weapon. These objects are always masterwork quality. Weapons acquired at 1st level are not made of any special material. If the object is an amulet or ring, it must be worn to have effect, while staves, wands, and weapons must be wielded. If a wizard attempts to cast a spell without his bonded object worn or in hand, he must make a concentration check or lose the spell. The DC for this check is equal to 20 + the spell's level. If the object is a ring or amulet, it occupies the ring or neck slot accordingly.
A bonded object can be used once per day to cast any one spell that the wizard has in his spellbook and is capable of casting, even if the spell is not prepared. This spell is treated like any other spell cast by the wizard, including casting time, duration, and other effects dependent on the wizard's level. This spell cannot be modified by metamagic feats or other abilities. The bonded object cannot be used to cast spells from the wizard's opposition schools (see arcane school).
A wizard can add additional magic abilities to his bonded object as if he has the required item creation feats and if he meets the level prerequisites of the feat. For example, a wizard with a bonded dagger must be at least 5th level to add magic abilities to the dagger (see the Craft Magic Arms and Armor feat in Feats). If the bonded object is a wand, it loses its wand abilities when its last charge is consumed, but it is not destroyed and it retains all of its bonded object properties and can be used to craft a new wand. The magic properties of a bonded object, including any magic abilities added to the object, only function for the wizard who owns it. If a bonded object's owner dies, or the item is replaced, the object reverts to being an ordinary masterwork item of the appropriate type.
If a bonded object is damaged, it is restored to full hit points the next time the wizard prepares his spells. If the object of an arcane bond is lost or destroyed, it can be replaced after 1 week in a special ritual that costs 200 gp per wizard level plus the cost of the masterwork item. This ritual takes 8 hours to complete. Items replaced in this way do not possess any of the additional enchantments of the previous bonded item. A wizard can designate an existing magic item as his bonded item. This functions in the same way as replacing a lost or destroyed item except that the new magic item retains its abilities while gaining the benefits and drawbacks of becoming a bonded item.

Arcane School: A wizard can choose to specialize in one school of magic, gaining additional spells and powers based on that school. This choice must be made at 1st level, and once made, it cannot be changed. A wizard that does not select a school receives the universalist school instead.
A wizard that chooses to specialize in one school of magic must select two other schools as his opposition schools, representing knowledge sacrificed in one area of arcane lore to gain mastery in another. A wizard who prepares spells from his opposition schools must use two spell slots of that level to prepare the spell. For example, a wizard with evocation as an opposition school must expend two of his available 3rd-level spell slots to prepare a fireball. In addition, a specialist takes a –4 penalty on any skill checks made when crafting a magic item that has a spell from one of his opposition schools as a prerequisite. A universalist wizard can prepare spells from any school without restriction.
Each arcane school gives the wizard a number of school powers. In addition, specialist wizards receive an additional spell slot of each spell level he can cast, from 1st on up. Each day, a wizard can prepare a spell from his specialty school in that slot. This spell must be in the wizard's spellbook. A wizard can select a spell modified by a metamagic feat to prepare in his school slot, but it uses up a higher-level spell slot. Wizards with the universalist school do not receive a school slot.

School: Air Elementalist (Smoke Subschool)
Air Supremacy (Su): You gain a +2 enhancement bonus on Fly skill checks. This bonus increases by +1 for every five wizard levels you possess. In addition, you can cast feather fall on yourself at will. At 5th level, you can cast levitate on yourself at will. At 10th level, you can cast fly on yourself at will. At 20th level, whenever you make a Fly skill check, assume the roll resulted in a natural 20.
Smokesight (Su): You can see normally through natural fog and smoke, as well as any fog and smoke that you (but not others) magically create. A number of times per day equal to 3 + your Intelligence bonus, you can touch another creature as a standard action to grant it this vision for 1 hour.

Cantrips: Wizards can prepare a number of cantrips, or 0-level spells, each day, as noted on Table: Wizard under “Spells per Day.” These spells are cast like any other spell, but they are not expended when cast and may be used again. A wizard can prepare a cantrip from a prohibited school, but it uses up two of his available slots (see below).

Scribe Scroll: At 1st level, a wizard gains Scribe Scroll as a bonus feat.

Ranged Legerdemain (Su): An arcane trickster can use Disable Device and Sleight of Hand at a range of 30 feet. Working at a distance increases the normal skill check DC by 5, and an arcane trickster cannot take 10 on this check. Any object to be manipulated must weigh 5 pounds or less. She can only use this ability if she has at least 1 rank in the skill being used.

Sneak Attack: This is exactly like the rogue ability of the same name. The extra damage dealt increases by +1d6 every other level (2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, and 10th). If an arcane trickster gets a sneak attack bonus from another source, the bonuses on damage stack.

Impromptu Sneak Attack (Ex): Beginning at 3rd level, once per day an arcane trickster can declare one melee or ranged attack she makes to be a sneak attack (the target can be no more than 30 feet distant if the impromptu sneak attack is a ranged attack). The target of an impromptu sneak attack loses any Dexterity bonus to AC, but only against that attack. The power can be used against any target, but creatures that are not subject to critical hits take no extra damage (though they still lose any Dexterity bonus to AC against the attack).
At 7th level, an arcane trickster can use this ability twice per day.

Tricky Spells (Su): Starting at 5th level, an arcane trickster can cast her spells without their somatic or verbal components, as if using the Still Spell and Silent Spell feats. Spells cast using this ability do not increase in spell level or casting time. She can use this ability 3 times per day at 5th level and one additional time per every two levels thereafter, to a maximum of 5 times per day at 9th level. The arcane trickster decides to use this ability at the time of casting.

Invisible Thief (Su): At 9th level, an arcane trickster can become invisible, as if under the effects of greater invisibility, as a free action. She can remain invisible for a number of rounds per day equal to her arcane trickster level. Her caster level for this effect is equal to her caster level. These rounds need not be consecutive.

Also dotting! I have an idea for an Ifrit Foresight Diviner Wizard styled after a volcano Oracle I could stat out, doing stuff like cutting his flowing magma hair to sniff its ashes and read the future (foresight).

For the basic background, is there some liberty to be taken in that the Giants drove the Ifrit from mount ashpeak and that he wants to take revenge? I'm unfamiliar with what exactly is native to ashpeak other than the fire giants.

Wow, surprised by the interest by so many people! I really thought people would find it a hassle to create 13th level characters. Glad to know I was wrong.

Kronarg is an Eldritch Scrapper sorcerer with the Shapechanger bloodline. This allows for long-term use of Monstrous Physique. He carries a Butchering Axe, often walks around as a Saurian (Huge), and relies on Vital Strike (he can pick up Improved Vital Strike while under the effects of Transformation). He wears Celestial Plate armor, since a party of only 4 will not necessarily be able to keep all enemies off of him (and, I do not wish to count on the 15-minute adventuring day and always having buffs up). He can cast in this armor with no ASF.

His main role as a caster will be utility spells as needed - Haste, Fly, Dispel Magic, Arcane Eye, Shadow Conjuration, Teleport, Wall of Force, and the like - happy to take suggestions.

Personality-wise, he is a Kellid with a bit of a chip on his shoulder; there is something offensive to him about the very idea of a giant or orc being stronger than him, so he has developed his magic to boost his strength. It is never enough, of course, and he dreams of being able to cast Giant Form. He is a worshipper of Gorum, and is able to properly perform the obedience (although he doesn't have the feat, he still enjoys banging his axe against his armor and howling his prayer). He's CG, although not overly interested in debates about ethics or morality - he just enjoys a good scrap for a good cause.

Played this campaign twice. First one had the campaign die out, second one ended with TPK. Would like to finish it up.

Throwing in Rurik Goldbeard, a dwarf who is descended from
Nargrym's Steel Hand and who has dedicated his life to living up to his illustrious ancestor. Lawful Neutral through and through, with an eye for following tradition. Given how the party rediscovered his ancestor's tomb and cleared it out, he sees them as heroes that he is honor-bound to assist them in their quest, for the honor of his Clan and his ancestors call for that.

Ranger (9) Sky Seeker (4). Wields a pair of dwarven war-shields and wears solid fullplate armor. Surprisingly good at diplomacy with a +21 modifier. The plan is to go up to lvl10 ranger and then pure sky seeker.

I figured that a very traditional dwarf with fullplate armor and a pair of shields (two weapon fighting build) would be a nice compliment to a dwarven barbarian. He'd generally cast Longstrider on himself and the Barbarian, giving them both +10ft movement speed. Assuming that both of them have 30ft normally, it would allow both to move 40ft for 9 hours.

Also if the party needs any trapfinding, I can switch the Ranger Archetype to Urban Ranger. While it's not my favorite archetype, as it trades out Favored Terrain and Woodland Stride for something useless. But even with plate armor, by moving some things around, I think that I can ACP down to -1 or 2 without too much problem. Would further add stealth to trained skills at that point and would bump up dex abit, so he could handle the role better.

Hi Death-Lok! It's Archlich here!

As promised, here's my Dragon Disciple Dwarf :) Arthorius is very much a full arcane caster (spontaneous, as supposed - a sorcerer, crossblooded of Empyreal and Green Dragon). I created him as a blaster, but I hope he can also work to buff the party and do some crowd control when needed.

Thanks for running it, and best of luck to everybody!

I ran out of time to get an outline together today... I’ll try to get it up tomorrow.

If ye need a trap finder and opener of many things, look no further than Zinar.

He just needs some mundane equipment but other than that he should be ready to go.

Liberty's Edge

Paladin 13 For your consideration. Still working on several details but wanted to get him posted.


Made a few revisions, including picking spells and skills. With Disguise as a bonus class skill, and shapeshifting spells plus decent Cha, I may as well take Disguise and Bluff to give the party an alternative option at times. And that required boosting Int to 13... which opens up more options for Martial Flexibility.

Right, going to start working on my Ifrit Diviner Wizard now! If I can't finish it tonight, I'll try and do so tomorrow evening.

Read my initial post. :)

Ah, knew there was a reason I didn’t initially build it. :p

Here's a rough outline of Giant Halfling's submission. I tried several different ways to put together the magus I had in mind but just couldn't get him to click. So, I ended up switching gears. Theldrassil the Wanderer is a elven wizard with some druidic magic. He'd cover all the knowledges and be geared largely towards control (in terms of his spells) but with a fair bit of utility and some damage capability.

very rough fluff:
Theldrassil was born in Iadara, the capital of Kyonin. As a very young boy, he wondered off in the wilderness during an outing and vanished. He was discovered years later (while still a very young child by elvish standards) near Greengold on the coast of Lake Encarthan. He had no memories of the time he was missing but afterwards often dreamt of a hooded figure with stars where a face should be (the Eldest Ng, whom he now worships) and was nearly obsessed with exploring and discovering. He was returned to Iadara and grew up with his family. As soon as he reached maturity, though, he set out on a decades-long journey that, thus far, has taken him down into Druma, across the Five-Kings Mountains to Andoran, through Cheliax, by sea to Varisia, into Nirmathas by way of the Bloodsworn Vale, up into Lastwall, and finally into Belkzen.

(If you're alright with the build idea, I'll flesh this out when I have more time and include a handful of hooks in case you want to use them at all).

a note on his build:
So, it might look at first glance like he doesn't qualify for mystic theurge. His 5th level wizard discovery lets him cast longstrider as a 2nd level divine spell (even though it uses a wizard slot when he does), so that's enough for him to legal qualify (by RAW). I'm sure that some people probably aren't crazy about that approach, but I thought that maybe you might be okay with it because the utility of the lower level druid spells is offset by missing out on 7th level wizard spells (plus my lower Wis will limit their DCs which helps ensure their not overpowering). That said, if you don't like that build please say so and I'll change it (I'd much rather rebuild than just miss out because of the build). I could try to do something similar with a Magaambyan Arcanist, maybe, or I have an idea for a Dex-based Ulfen swordsman I could submit instead?

Here's basic crunch still have some gold to spend and general gear to get. Ill get some fluff up hopefully later today.

Edlin is an elf. Just a missed copy-paste error

Looking at some submissions here - man, what an interesting group won't this one be. And it's charming that Giantslayer is one of the "ole & good" ones!

Silver Crusade

Right, kept working on the level 13 Ifrit Diviner wizard and I have him mostly done, but need to catch some sleep as it's been a very busy day, and fully statting him out is taking a bit longer than I'd hoped even with herolab. As it stands he's heavily crowd-control, utility buff (haste/foretell/dimension door) and transmutation focussed. I hope to finish his background and spell selection tomorrow night.

Although I do love high level play, having been accepted at another table, I am going to withdraw from this recruitment. I don't have the bandwidth for another table. Have a fun game everyone, may the dice bot be kind.

Ok pad300, be well. I have enough solid applicants so will end Recruitment tomorrow at midnight EST and make selections Saturday. I will be picking 2 players since we lost our elven rogue.

I have a dwarf ranger Dolgrym Giantfoe that started this AP 3 times and the game never made it to book 2. I've brought him up to 13th level and added in disable device.

Thank you for your consideration.

i will respectfully withdraw. I was accepted elsewhere and havent had time to build a story. best of fun going on with all.

@Death-lok: I asked (in the "a note about his build") section of my partial submission (Theldrassil) if you were alright with his basic build, but haven't gotten an answer yet? I have appearance and personality stuff ready to go, as well as sort of a rough outline of a different build for him if the current one doesn't sit well with you (the rebuild would be a wizard with one of the elemental schools, switching over to the magaambyan arcanist prestige class), but the change in build would shift some of his fluff too... Do you want me to just post the fluff for the current build, or switch him over and post for the other?

My contention with the build would be that mystic theurge pc states that you have to be able to cast 2nd-level divine spells. Plural. Not one divine spell which you can only prepare once using Faith magic. With so many arcane builds, I was interested in the Dex build you mentioned, but you can post what you wish. It will garner full consideration.

Just chiming in that my submission will be complete in an hour or so, two at tops!

No worries, you've got 8+ hours to go.

Thanks for the feedback! I really like the Dex build guy, probably more than Theldrassil (the way he turned out), honestly, but I felt kind of locked in to an arcane caster because that’s what I said I was pitching. I have a decent chunk of free time coming up in a few hours, so I’ll get a submission posted for my (Dex based) Ulfen swordsman then.

All right, this is Trevor's finished submission! I think this qualifies for all desired needs for the arcane caster.

If you believe is stat array is currently too heavily into dumping stats to raise int and con (he has a resulting 8 str, 12 wis and 10 cha since I had no money left for better belts/headbands), I'd happily redo them later.

Oh, and a much better portrait is in the alias :) Unfortunately there do not seem to be many, if any, Ifrit portraits on the Paizo site.

Alright, I (gianthalfling) present for your consideration, Wulfric Stonehelm, (Dex based) Ulfen swordsman. With decent diplomacy (and perform dance) he can help in social situations, and he has stealth and umd for some utility, but his real expertise is in melee combat. His agility makes him hard to hit and he does much more damage with his longsword than most people expect.

Wulfric stands a couple inches taller than six feet, with broad shoulders but a slim build. His shoulder-length dirty blonde hair is graying but his bright blue eyes have not dimmed at all with age. A coat of fine silvery chain rests between his blue tunic and fur-lined brown cloak. He wears a buckler on his left arm and carries a longsword on his hip. His bulkier kin sometimes tease him about getting a real shield or investing in a two-handed sword but he carries himself with the quiet confidence of a man who knows exactly what his sword is capable of.

Wulfric is a pleasant, friendly man. Years of conflict have worn away all trace of the prankster he was in his youth, but it has not robbed him of his lust for roasted meat and sweet meads (and buxom women). He’s never been clever enough to write songs or poems, but has a deep love of poetry and music and is a magnificent dancer. Though he’s never been an especially devout man, he feels a real affinity for Shelyn and her church (and he once spent several weeks with a beautiful priestess of Arshea who very nearly convinced him to join that faith).

(Abridged) Background:
Wulfric was born to Ulfen immigrants at Castle Everstand, in Lastwall. His father and uncles worked as guards for merchants and dignitaries visiting Trunau (and occasionally as scouts for other groups looking to make trouble in Belkzen). He was trained from a young age in the Skald language and the use of traditional Ulfen weapons. Both of his parents were talented singers and he grew up surrounded by the music of his people. From the time he was old enough to carry a sword he often accompanied the men of the family on their safer journeys, sometimes spending weeks at a time in Trunau while a client conducted business.

Wulfric was never a particularly smart boy, but he was a natural with a sword and picked up combat techniques far more easily than reading or math. He also possessed a natural charm and made friends quickly. As a young man he befriended some of Trunau’s dwarves who taught him how to drink, and how to fight giants. As he grew, he learned more about the ancient society of warrior-poets to which his father and brothers belonged and he swore the order’s oaths on the day he was recognized as a man. For a time he continued on in the family business but as his skill grew so did his desire to make a greater difference in the world. He began taking longer and longer periods of time off to travel around southern Belkzen joining the fights against orcs and giants. When word reached him of the recent troubles in Trunau he returned to the settlement to see how he could help.

This profile was used for an NPC in another game I'm running and I haven't switched it over yet if you look at it right away. I'm going to start switching it over right now but please ignore any discrepancies you might see.

Aside from tweaking some gear, I believe my profile is completely set up. Good luck to Death-lok on what I'm sure will be a difficult decision!

Thanks to all the applicants. This was a difficult decision, I know it's a disappointment to come up with 13th level characters, stat them up, buy gear, etc. and then not get picked so I apologize in advance. I had fun reading your profiles. Well, with that out of the way, the 2 characters selected are:

Edlin the Foreseer
Wulfric Stonehelm

Please report to the Discussion Thread (click on Tab above). If I need replacements, I know where to look. Thank you again.
