chronicles



If you are interested in participating, please tell me about your character.

I will be choosing a party. I'll make my choice as soon as I have 12 interested characters, or in three days if I have at least 6 interested characters.

Please be aware this scenario is notorious for its difficulty, so please make sure you have plenty of PP to pay if your character dies.

I have played Bonekeep in Core (with a Core Rogue!) several years ago, but not in Standard.

This is my submission.

RP-wise, he is a wizard with a lot of memories that he can't explain.
Is he actually Aroden reincarnated?
Is he possessed by a vestige?
Is he the reincarnation of a high priest that had communed with the Last Azlanti?
Is he a delusional amnesiac?
He is not sure. Though he does use the name. "Yes, Aroden, in honor of the Last Azlanti. Just a man trying to follow his example." True enough.

Mechanically, he is a pretty capable generalist wizard, with an at-will aura buff in the form of Inspiring Sword. He tries to prepare a good number of problem-solving spells, and he is particularly good at Dispelling. His saves and HP are decent for a Wiz7. And I do have the Prestige to raise him.

Unfortunately, he's a lot lower on gold than I would like for starting out Bonekeep. He bought a lot of items at the outset of what I thought would be a lucrative PbP mission, only to have that cancelled. I may sell some gear to buy more consumables for this mission, depending on what everybody else has.

Silver Crusade

I (qstor) have a aasimar paladin. I think a paladin is a good choice for Bonekeep :)

Grand Lodge

I would be interested with this Character a level 6 Tiefling Bloodrager/ Dragon Disciple. He typically likes up close natural attacks. He has High AC Decent saves and pretty good damage output. He feels he has to prove his worth because of his appearance, and will do anything he can to try and save the weak and innocent. I've heard horror stories of this special and would love the chance to try my hand at it.

Pai is a 7th level kineticist (electricity and water blasts) with 35 PP. She's a ball of hyperactivity and chattiness, which only gets more intense as her excitement increases. She's willing to throw herself at anything, even if she's not good at it, which is why she often finds herself on jobs that don't really cater to her strengths. (I like the character development that happens then.) In the past she's become a starry-eyed fangirl of teammates who were particularly awesome/rolled well when it really mattered.

Also, she's terrified of undead. Especially ghouls and ghasts, but all of them make her wet herself, if only a little bit. This stems from a job she did a while back in which her whole team were rendered inactive while she had to fight a ghast one-on-one. She barely survived and had to be healed of the ghoul fever afterwards. Very traumatic.

Grand Lodge

I have a lvl 6 swashbuckler that can play all 3...he's one xp shy of 7th...good in combat, has some face skills...pretty good AC for only wearing light armour...

Dark Archive

Candledark (please disregard the first name, I regret it and would change it if not for the damned "10 posts, then you're stuck" system) is a 5th level Formless Adept Psychic with 18 PP. He's a spooky trickster with all sorts of surprises up his sleeves, and is not-so-subtly based on a certain cartoon supervillain.

While not much in the melee, healing, outdoorsmanship, or locks/traps departments, he otherwise has something to offer in most any situation. He can be a fine harrier, and the living tend to be putty in his mind. As for the undead, he has nothing against them (as a matter of fact, he feels a certain affinity!), but desiccated flesh tends to burn very well, and even bodiless spirits would do well to fear the entropic power of his Will.

"Bonekeep??? I'm going to need more rope...!"

Sovereign Court

I have this paladin who would love a shot as the legendary site. He's a pds/tank hybrid depending on the loadout. With his glaive he has the ability to hit adjacent foes, so he does not need to keep them at bay if that is not an option.

As far as roleplay goes, He's a bit on the cantankerous side, but lowkey looks for the good in those around him. He's accepting of other faiths, realizing that it takes many chefs to keep the planar-multiverse going round. Indeed, Korum has even taken a few languages with this in mind. Well that and the fact my friend was going to be playing a summoner and I wanted to be able to talk to the creatures he brought to the battlefield.

As an Oath Against Undead paladin, he has no love for the abominations and has taken some steps to protect himself from them (Deathless armor property). Indeed, it is the only situation he tends to lose himself in. At 5th level, he can play up or down. I may be able to apply GM credit it to him in the near future so that he can hit 6th for Bonekeep III. He is also sitting on 17 PP if that is a make or break consideration.

Looking forward to sharing a table with everyone. Good luck everyone!

Aroden was there for that one!

And while he wasn't rendered inactive, he was basically playing defense and trying to keep everyone else alive rather than taking the fight to the BBEG as Pai could. (Again, he's mostly a utility caster.)

That Invisibility Sphere that he cast did prove useful as an emergency option to regroup... I may use Prestige to pick up a scroll with two such castings on it.

Dark Archive

I have 3 replays set aside and one of them is earmarked for Bonekeep part 1. But I have nothing at level 7 in classic. I do have an option for low tier. At least for part 1.

Sarina Darkmoon is a level 4 Hunter (Feykiller) with a small and very dexterous kitty. This is very much a situation of the PC being support for the animal companion. Fluffy the leopard is small, has 28 dex, an Agile aomf, and the trip ability.

Sarina uses Shield Companion (AA version) and Barkskin to boost Fluffy's already formidable defenses.
On top of the expected Survival and Handle Animal she has decent knowledges and is good at Sense Motive.

Would have to update my profile.

Liberty's Edge

Khugron is a Najaji Bloodrager 4/Brawler 2/Fighter 1 (High Guardian) using a magical adamantine bec de corbin. For combat, an enlarged bloodrager with Phalanx Formation can be rather painful if you are on the receiving end. He is flexible in his tactics and can get up close and personal if needed. He likes to pass out ponchos to the others so they will not get so messy when he hits foes. (Crits for 6d8+57)


Actually Sarina is one of my fun characters. Not appropriate for Bonekeep. Maybe I'll use this gameday to work on something to someday play Bonekeep. Withdrawing for now.

Liberty's Edge

I've never played the Bonekeep scenarios. I'll throw my hat in the ring.

Revered Master Poh is a noble vanara monk. I say noble, I mean noble in spirit - he's also a smelly drunk with poor manners, not that many people pay attention to manners in a dungeon.

And yet Master Poh has won many friends amongst the Pathfinder Society, because he is rather good at keeping his team from harm.

Poh is a qinggong drunken sensei of the four winds: a monk with multiple stacking archetypes. Between Helpful Bodyguard, In Harm's Way, and Mystic Wisdom Poh is a strong support character. He also has Inspire Courage and Inspire Competence with Lingering Performance. His saves are good. He doesn't hit all that hard, but he can stack drunken strength and elemental fist for one big punch, and is highly mobile.

(If we go low tier, I'd bring Lucky Lee. Lucky is a level 5 monk/bloodrager/swashbuckler capable of running AC29 with Shield and Crane Style, also offers +4AC to the front line via Helpful Bodyguard, and can get underfoot to hamper Medium and larger targets further. "Lucky" is the last, luckiest halfling - a freedom fighter who has survived more horrors than anyone has a right to: a good fit for bonekeep perhaps!)

I'm going to have to withdraw Pai from the running here. She'll hit level 8 after the first one and won't be able to play the second. Bummer. Good luck to everyone else! Have fun!

Sovereign Court

Thank you for offering to run this game GM Redelia. This is much appreciated! I would not pass up the opportunity to try to sign up for any game you decide to run, so here I am! :)

I have three level 6 characters available for this, as follows:

Jeydahvu, Male Oread Bloodrager 6
Son of Cayden, Male Human Bard 6 (Arcane Duelist)
Zzorn, Male Human Barbarian 1/Fighter (Siegebreaker) 4/Ulfen Guard 1

I have other lower level PCs also available at level 3 or 4 if you decide to run the low tier instead (list available upon request).

Best regards and good luck to everyone! (those who are selected will need it! :) :) :) )

PDK

Liberty's Edge

Since there are many front-liner submissions already, I will select the bard to enhance/buff the whole lot.

Son of Cayden, Male Human Bard 6 (Arcane Duelist), Liberty's Edge, 4456-10

As per my previous post, I can also go low-tier (3-4) if that's a direction we wish to take instead.

Cheers,
PDK

just realized i posted using my default profile..not the character i want to play...derp!!

Dark Archive

Someone pointed out that Sarina could play all 3, Albiet at low tier for all of them. So if a low tier table is run by someone I would like to play.

I am down to play. 4rouge 3 Arcane Urban Bloodrager

Silver Crusade

OK, we have 12 applicants. I'm talking to another GM who may run another table so everyone can play.

PDK, I'm going to need you to switch to low/mid-tier (3-5) as you offered.

I also need one other person to volunteer to switch from a high tier character to a low/mid-tier character to make this work. It's also possible that a level six could play down, depending on the level of PDK's character.


Hello, everybody! Redelia said you folks might need a GM to help murderize run a session of the ol' Bonekeep!

Pay no attention to my friendly Otyugh sidekick. He's just here for the leftovers.

I can play down. I have a 4 level gunslinger, or a Ftr 1/Gunglinger 4, Rogue 4 or I might play the paladin pregen.

Silver Crusade

Candledark, Korum, Sarina Darkmoon, and Vrockwing, you're low tier with me. In just a minute I will create gameplay and discussion threads; please dot and delete from gameplay and give my your chronicle information in the discussion thread.

Qstor and PDK, please pick a character of level 3-5 and join us.

Everyone else, you'll be with Our Mysterious Benefactor playing high tier. Hopefully he will give you instructions for how to check in soon.

Thanks for your interest everyone. Looking forward to this.


Click me for hot high tier Bonekeep action!

Liberty's Edge

Hi GMs

Could you clarify who is expected at each table please?

high tier currently has 4 PCs.

This thread shows Patros Therinor and Phantomblade as high tier entrants, but Phantomblade's player has joined the low tier table with a different PC and Patros' player has not yet joined either table.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Lost Omens Subscriber

Is there still room at the High Tier table?

I have a level 7 Fighter in need of a dangerous mission. :)

EDIT I decided to use my skinwalker barbarian.

@GM: this starts in January right?


Right now I have:

LOW TIER:
Qstor
I'm Hiding in your Closet
TriShadow
BigGuyinBlack
PurpleDragon Knight
Daveak

HIGH TIER:
Aroden Reincarnated
xxCrusaderxx
Ed Birnbyer
GM Supervillain

Which leaves Grimdog73 as not in a game yet. I have two spaces open in high tier, so Blake's Tiger and Grimdog73 are in as I re-read and Warah had to drop out.

Silver Crusade

Well our high tier table is looking problematic. It's 5 martials plus one wizard, no divine casting at all. There doesn't seem to be much availability, if any, of alternative characters amongst the high tier players.

Would anyone on the low tier table be up for a swap to high tier?

This is surely a scenario that needs balanced parties.

I will but I prefer to play a paladin? I have a cleric but she's 8th.

EDIT: I also have a tengu ninja 7, gnome summoner 6, elf wizard 6, and a gnome inquisitor 7, a grippli archer ranger 6. But prefer the paladin.

And YES I have a lot of PCs LOL. I'm recovering from PFS 1e LOL

EDIT 2: I dotted with Tormond but I'm wavering now to see if I'm jumping tables.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Lost Omens Subscriber

Can you play out of subtier in this? I could bring my Fighter 7 to the low table if someone there has an better character for the high table if that's possible and I don't throw off the math.

Liberty's Edge

The only thing I could bring to high is a Rogue barbarian.. don't know how much it would help lol


Hi, I would also like to join in high tier!

Is there still a spot? I have a cleric.

He's taking Grim's spot. If he wants to move to the higher level table. I can move back to the lower level table. What's the party/class make up again?

Sovereign Court

Korum here in a paladin.

Grand Lodge

1 person marked this as a favorite.

As far as I'm tracking, it should be High tier table is full, with Pig the Runt filling a vacancy and Grimm swapping with QStor. Then Grimm decided to back out from low-tier so his spot is open and we have Mun and Noral as back up and in that order. However you guys can all decide who how gets in to what table from here I just wanted to make sure everyone is on the same page and no one is getting overlooked.

Silver Crusade

Thanks Vrothum! This is Mun; he's a level 7 Lunar Oracle who primarily plays a support role, in addition to buffing his primal companion bear, Selune, for melee.

I've been patiently waiting on the high-tier waitlist, unaware that there may have been an opening at this table in the meantime (in fact, I'm not certain that there is an opening here, but they told me at the high tier table that I should post here since grim was dropping out). I have plenty of characters in low-tier that I could bring, could probably fill most roles. Happy to play either table!

From the list above there MIGHT be a place at the high table but not at the LOW table? Check with Redelia.

EDIT:

It looks like the tables are:
(Correct me if I'm wrong?)

LOW TIER:
Qstor (character TBD)
I'm Hiding in your Closet
TriShadow
BigGuyinBlack
PurpleDragon Knight
Daveak

HIGH TIER:
Aroden Reincarnated

So Qstor you swapped with Grimm to play at the high table to bring balance but were originally low table. Grimm decided to give his spot up so that we leave an opening at high tier if you decided to keep your original spot. If that's the case, that would leave an opening in high tier. Mun posted an interest in playing in the high tier and was put on a wait list. Noral just posted a few days ago so he should also be put on a wait list behind Mun. So from here I guess it's up to the GM's to decide who gets in.


Once again, I am letting you guys figure out who is playing. The game will start on time with six players. No, I will not allow 7. Bonekeep is special and six is the most I will run it with.

Figure it out amongst yourselves and I'll see you when NostalgiaCon begins.

I thought that Grim gave his spot for Noral cause he's a regular pbp GM?

:::confused::::

Silver Crusade

Fair enough then I'll step up and say the most fair way to decide who gets to play is first post, Mun posted first, thank you everyone who posted interest in our game at the high table hopefully we finally have everything sorted out. Noral if something changes, which at this point seems possible I guess someone will reach you.

Silver Crusade

So hears the thing guys no guidelines were given, Mun posted interest before Pig and before Noral. So he was about to get leapfrogged twice. In my opinion that's not fair. So with all that considered this should have been decided by one of the GMs. If this is the case I will happily give my seat to Mun so he can play. I know GM's do favors like that sometimes but I don't think conventions is the right place to do it when it's listed as open recruitment.


Hi guys, super sorry for the confusion.

Please play in the waitlist order.

So Grimm can have his spot back or in case he really doesn’t want to play then MUN is in and I’m out. ;-)

Happy holidays guys!!

Thou shalt count to six - no more, no less....

...Six shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be six...

...Seven shalt thou not count, neither count thou five, excepting that thou then proceed to six...

Eight is RIGHT OUT!
