in PBP usually block initiative is very useful to increase post speed. Ini moves from block to block and characters inside a block may post in any order.
Block 1: Griswald, Matilda, Bruce
Block 2: Daughter, Web
Block 3: Malik, Lie
Block 4: Grave (maybe handwave and move up to Block 2)
Block 5 = Block 1

Bruce was not at all afraid of the sudden emergance of undead monsters. No halfling is ever afraid! The strange creature did however irritate him, as mostly he had known skeletons und zombies. The battle field was wide and could surely need a few more bodies with claws to make life easier for his new allies. He stepped back behind Malik and Matilda, hoping they'd be able to shield him, while he prepared his summoning.

Above is the d20 link you can follow. I will be using that for maps.

I believe you still need to add a character sheet for each one of us.

"Haha, I like it!" Bruce responded amused. He behaved a little like a child and not because of his child-like size. He simply wasn't accustomed to other people, but a playful lifestyle in the forest.

"Rosey is not a dog!" Bruce shouts at the other halfling that had arrived and ignores him for the rest of the gathering.

His face made a confused look, when even more people arrived. And his jaw dropped, when the butler announced a meeting with the prince. "Ey, Matilda, can you this clean up spell that makes my clothes look less dirty? Maybe, the way I am, I'm not well prepared for this."

Hi Mightypion/Rorek, remember your Infernal lawyer friend from the Damned Troop?

After consideration, I'd like to have a go in your game. I'll choose a build other than the lawyer, though. Want to address the innkeeper theme.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

for Oracle, Ancient Lorekeeper works as always.

Loremaster PC always works, but is ridiculous to qualify. Pathfinder Savant if you really wanted to loose a spellcaster level.

Personally, I'd just build an Evangelist of Apsu.

I love the Player's guide. It encourages you to build a character that is totally out of place, when the adventure starts.
"WTF am I doing here. I'm a sailor, not a dragon hunter."
"I don't know how to help you with your problem, I'm just a stupid rich noble visiting my uncle. But I'll see what I can do..."

Impressed by the others' witty responses Garidan joins the general consent. "Well, well. I'm sure we can come to some sort of arrangement. It must be reviewed in detail, of course." He looks around at everyone. "I am certain, none of us wants to end up down here again."

For a few moments he seems lost in thought, mumbling to himself and apparently to his breast. "Well. Camina agrees with me, that such an offer from your side would certainly help your case..." the last part he said in a silent tone, barely hearable.

Beetly was startled at the friendly gesture and took the hand for an untrained handshake. "Friend? Oh, I don't know. But if you think so? Whatever..."
A worm crawls over his cheek and Beetly eats it.

Basically out of nowhere, from a dark corner of the hall, another goblin appears. This one comes as ugly and as dirty as every story tells. His clothes are filthy and vermin crawl all over him. Weren't it for his defensive gesture, the dwarves in the room would instinctively attack him.
my curse lowers inital attitude by one

The hideous appearance is further increased by a dark, formless veil that swirls around the goblin, making him extra hard to pinpoint.
Beetly does wear some standard things like a cloak, gloves and boots, but despite a buckler that seems to be made of very shiny metal somewhere under a layer of dirt and some pityful spikes on a mini gauntlet, he's not dressed for war. That is obvious.

The figure begins to studder:
Diplomacy: 1d20 + 6 - 4 ⇒ (3) + 6 - 4 = 5
"Er...I'm sorry to intrude. My name is Beetly. I understand this is the time and place to seek permission to access the vaults. I've been following and spying on the hobgoblin army for, uh, weeks or months, I don't even know. I work in the name of he great Lord of Spies Kelinahat, to gather information on, well I guess, our common enemy. If you don't mind, I'd like to join so that I can keep on pursuing..."

"Well, edited mostly..."

Without further mumbles he followed the others to set get some buckets and set up a line. At least he was pretty fast on his feet.

My experience with several parallel tables is that eventually players disappear. And instead of re-recruit new players, the GM can just merge the remaining teams and continue with one table. Have seen this happen at least twice for games I played in.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
=================================================
Variant Multiclass Sorcerer Aberrant Bloodline
Channel Positive Energy (Su) When an iron priest channels energy to heal living creatures, she heals constructs with the clockwork or robot subtypes as well. Constructs without those subtypes are also affected, but gain only half the normal amount of healing or take only half the normal amount of damage, as appropriate. This ability alters channel energy.
Spontaneous Casting An iron priest can spontaneously cast make whole and weater make whole in place of cure/ inflict moderate wounds and cure/inflict critical wounds, regardless of whether she channels positive or negative energy. This ability alters casting.
Touch of Chaos (Sp) You can imbue a target with chaos as a melee touch attack. For the next round, any time the target rolls a d20, he must roll twice and take the less favorable result. You can use this ability 7 times per day.
Vision of Madness (Sp) You can give a creature a vision of madness as a melee touch attack. Choose one of the following; attack rolls, saving throws, or skill checks. The target receives a +1 bonus to the chosen rolls and a -1 penalty to the other two types of rolls. This effect fades after 3 rounds. You can use this ability 7 times per day.


Background:

=================================================
BACKGROUND
=================================================
Ulix is a shabby 50 years-old man that noone would look at twice. Hard to say when he had the last bath, haircut or shave. Probably before his visions had started and when he was still a boring priest of Brigh. His job was overseeing the workshops and the students that, honestly, never were meant to succeed. Ulix is very knowledgable and knows quite a bit about many topics, but he's hard to talk to as he usually makes a very confused appearance. But let's fast forward to today.
Ulix came to Torch, and Numeria in general, looking for answers. Looking for prove he wasn't crazy. Aliens are real, he just knew it.
Too bad nobody at home in stupid Taldor believed him. "They're already here and they'll bring an early end to this world. The renewal is awaiting. Groetus is just around the corner." That's what he was trying to tell everyone, while officially being declared crazy. "I am only the messenger", he tried to explain. But those narrow-minded people were already lost it seemed. Or why would they not listen to an envoy of the Great Groetus. The Majesty that will finish this miserable life and start some thing new. Something better! Ulix only tries to help. Tries to warn of the alien invasion that may be brutal and catastrophic, but eventually good.
Maybe his claims, he had been kidnapped and been experimented on by aliens had something to do with people's reluctance to believe him. His strange limbs and tongue apparently were not prove enough, but disgusted people. "Your mother had a foul run-in with a demon-worshipping Grippli cult", they claimed. B@%$%!@~. It had to be the aliens, he had the visions and memories, after all.

Well, now he's here in Torch, hoping to research the aliens first hand, hoping to find prrof, hoping to get answers on how to help people face world's end. Hopefully he will find some likeminded individuals that will be less ignorant than the Taldane people at home. Someone who can accompany him would be nice. He's not th fittest person after all.

"You're a funny one, aren't you?" Iyani responds to the inquisitor's laughter. She also looks at him with a stern and intimidating (1d20 + 7 ⇒ (10) + 7 = 17) face. "Look at us! We barely made is out alive and our loved ones are probably none better."

Wasting no more time, not waiting for an answer, she turns around and heads towards home.

Iryani let loose a loud cry of pain when the sleepers got to her. With two deep bites, they wounded her heavily. There was nothing left for then to withdraw from the flanking beasts. This was no easy task, as the intelligent creatures covered every direction.

Iryani has never been more happy to not have pursued the track of Waternsinger than in this moment. She didn't comment any aspect of the situation, just oberved and smiled secretly. Politics was just not for her.

A moment later she remember her family. "Enough talking! Let's do something!"

There was relief in Iryani's face, when she found her mother. And she was well, at least physically. Mother was not a strong person, she needed her faith to have something to hold onto in difficult times. While Iryani found this superstition meaningless, she knew better than to confront her now.

"I never did, mother. I know the gods are everywhere and in everything. Sometimes for good and sometimes for bad. It's now ours to understand their ways. And it was just never for me to be their tool. I met someone who might be able to help us. The whole town has been affected and I'll fix this. Promise!" With that she left her mother at the shrine. This was probably the best place for her right now.
Iryani went back home to get her stuff and then went straight to find the Inquisitor.

Iryani who got up early enough, because of her also early bedtime, slendered through the forest and meadow. "Good morning, Mr. Rabbit. Hello Crows!" She shouted at the animals, while also waving them. This was partly her nature-loving soul and partly sarcastic. She's no animal-speaker or any other kind like that and was well aware they didn't understand her or the concept of a good morning. But it was a fun pastime and ritual.
She finally arrived at the meeting place the same way she went home yesterday.

Iryani took another detour on her way home, knowing, nothing interesting awaited her there. She went through the landscape her trail forming a long arc, before she reached the other end of the town, which was close to her home.
"Nothing, mother. As I said. Everything's sold out. Probably by yourself." Then she returned to her brother and awaited dinner and sleep.
She couldn't sleep very well, though. She was thinking about the people she met and the slikworms...

It's nice to see everybody happy. I guess that's a plus. Iryani has mixed feelings about the festivities ahead. All the ceremonies require a kind of endurance that she just does not have. And her mother, oh dear, she goes from crazy to insane during this time. Their home always sprouts very spiritual decorations, but now it's a mad assembly of colours and statues. Hopefully, my friends don't come by and have to see this...

Iryani did her part, though. Her little brother Raymon was taking part in a play and needed help with learning his texts. Iryani already knew all the lines, because she had to perform the exact same thing several times in her childhood. She couldn't talk him out of it, and she wouldn't dare talk their mother out of it, so she stayed and helped...

My experience is two to three level ups per year in a good running group.

Do you allow Variant Multiclassing? (never used it myself, but there's always a first time...)

Ok. I built a Cleric of an old egyptian god, Horus. This should fit well into the setting with the Goa'ulds' connection to ancient egypt.

=================================================
SPECIAL ABILITIES
=================================================
Evasion (Ex) If an animal companion is subjected to an attack that normally allows a Reflex saving throw for half damage, it takes no damage if it makes a successful saving throw.
Link (Ex) A master can handle her animal companion as a free action, or push it as a move action, even if she doesn't have any ranks in the Handle Animal skill. The master gains a +4 circumstance bonus on all wild empathy checks and Handle Animal checks made regarding an animal companion.
Share Spells (Ex) The master may cast a spell with a target of "You" on her animal companion (as a spell with a range of touch) instead of on herself. A master may cast spells on her animal companion even if the spells normally do not affect creatures of the companion's type (animal). Spells cast in this way must come from a class that grants an animal companion. This ability does not allow the animal to share abilities that are not spells, even if they function like spells.
Sudden Charge (Ex) When making a charge attack, an axe beak makes a single bite attack. If successful, it may also attempt to trip its opponent as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If the attempt fails, the axe beak cannot be tripped in return.
=================================================
ANIMAL TRICKS
=================================================
Combat Training An animal trained to bear a rider into combat knows the tricks attack, come, defend, down, guard, and heel. Training an animal for combat riding takes 6 weeks. You may also "upgrade" an animal trained for riding to one trained for combat by spending 3 weeks and making a successful DC 20 Handle Animal check. The new general purpose and tricks completely replace the animal's previous purpose and any tricks it once knew. Many horses and riding dogs are trained in this way.
Attack The animal attacks apparent enemies. You may point to a particular creature that you wish the animal to attack, and it will comply if able. Normally, an animal will attack only humanoids, monstrous humanoids, giants, or other animals. Teaching an animal to attack all creatures (including such unnatural creatures as undead and aberrations) counts as two tricks. Animal will attack all creatures
Come The animal comes to you, even if it normally would not do so.
Defend The animal defends you (or is ready to defend you if no threat is present), even without any command being given. Alternatively, you can command the animal to defend another specific character.
Deliver The animal takes an object to a place or person you indicate.
Down The animal breaks off from combat or otherwise backs down. An animal that doesn't know this trick continues to fight until it must flee (due to injury, a fear effect, or the like) or its opponent is defeated.
Guard The animal stays in place and prevents others from approaching.
Heel The animal follows you closely, even to places where it normally wouldn't go.
Hunt This trick allows an animal to use its natural stalking or foraging instincts to find food and return it to the animal's handler.
Stay The animal stays in place, waiting for you to return. It does not challenge other creatures that come by, though it still defends itself if it needs to.
Watch The animal can be commanded to keep watch over a particular area, such as a campsite, and raise an alarm if it notices any sizable or dangerous creature entering the area.

FYI. I am considering (and scheming with GM) about reentering with a new character. But this would only be in a slightly later stage of the adventure. With the current speed, this will never happen :)

@stat tracker:
1)According to my calculation, I am at 16 hp, because these attacks were illegal. The kobolds were flat-footed and therefore not allowed to make those AoOs.
2) My Fate's favored trait ups my divine favor bonus to 2/2

@Monkeygod

How would you feel, if I submitted a character "The Monkey King"?

He's his own race with good stats, a tail, climb speed, etc.
His artifact is the Staff of the Monkey King, following the rules for staves.
His classes are Warder (Dervish Defender) 10// Staff Magus 10// Rogue 1, Wizard 3, Arcane Trickster 6.
He will use trickery and speed to do two-weapon fighting with his staff using the martial disciplines of Thrashing Dragon and Veiled Moon as well as Spell Combat.
The backstory would be rather short, because everybody knows of the monkey king, but the stories vary from culture to culture. There's no fixed backstory, they're all true. He's a demi-god usually, but currently sentenced to mortality by the real gods, because of some tricks that went too far in the recent past.

Monkey King Race:

RP
4 Ability Score Modifiers: Advanced
4 Advanced Dexterity
3 Type: The Monkey King is a Monstrous Humanoid
0 Size: Medium
0 Base Speed: normal
1 Languages: Linguist. Common, may choose any language
2 Prehensile Tail: Members of this race have a long, flexible tail that can be used to carry objects. They cannot wield weapons with their tails, but they can retrieve small, stowed objects carried on their persons as a swift action.
2 Climb: Members of this race have a climb speed of 20 feet, and gain the +8 racial bonus on Climb checks that a climb speed normally grants.
4 Expert Climber: Members of this race can cling to cave walls and even ceilings as long as the surface has hand- and footholds. In effect, members of this race are treated as being constantly under the effects of a non-magical spider climb spell, save that members of this race cannot cling to smooth surfaces. This trait doubles the normal +8 racial bonus on Climb checks normally granted to creatures with a climb speed (to a total +16 bonus).
1 Immortal: Monkey King does not age naturally and cannot die of old age. Spells and effects that cause aging affect him as normal.
2 Healthy: Members of this race gain a +4 bonus on Fortitude saves against disease and poison, including magical diseases.
2 Beguiling Liar: Members of this race gain a +4 racial bonus on Bluff checks to convince an opponent that what they are saying is true when they tell a lie.
6 Change Shape, Greater: Members of this race gain the following supernatural ability: a member of this race can assume the appearance of a Small or Medium humanoid as the alter self spell, save that it does not adjust its ability scores.

building a strong character under these rulings is really simple. My main problem is building a fun to RP character that is more than just a dice-demigod. PbP is usually very RP-heavy.

Going to take an unchained barbarian, throw in a bard, and finish it off with an investigator. Mythic class with be marshal, so that he can lead forces to crush their enemies books, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of their authors!

Do it!

I hope this is due to Easter and not a premonition of what's going to happen in the gameplay thread.

Make the third class barbarian. Because a barbarian smacking people with a book for ridiculous amounts of damage is exactly what this world needs.

Use the barbarian archetype that refuses to learn how to read.
