Is your campaign using the rebellion mechanic or is the GM handling that behind the screen?
Do you mean are we managing the sheet? I believe so.
I think we’re going to have a relatively Charisma light group, but we have a bard and a Cleric, so hopefully they will be able to manage enough teams.

I gotcha, who at Paizo are the resident Star Wars fans?
Is there a group in Golarion that expies Mandalorians well?
In your mind, what are the factors that influenced your answer?
Factors I’m thinking of that I don’t want to influence your initial answer:
I’ve been enjoying the first few episodes of the Mandalorian and enjoy the faceless stoic character you can only judge by his actions and the instant recognition he receives most times.
I'd like a General Leo from FFVI type character. Honorable soldier who finally sees the straw that breaks the camel's back and decides to stand up to his former superiors.
And then I'll come up with 20 more ideas in the next year and end up going with 20 because of an active imagination amd poor memory.
Nope, never played Tomb Raider. I've played females in more hack and slash like the DnD side scrollers and Dynasty Warriors game, but not in RPGs. It's not a role I wanted to play.
I do love the female companions interacting with them in NWN2 and the KotOR and other Bioware games. When it comes to heavy roleplay, I want to relate to my character better.
Same reason I play humans more often than not.
Zaister, my point was that I don't enjoy playing female characters, so even if it was great, I still wouldn't enjoy it. The point of options is being able to choose the best for you. So I'm really happy you loved female Shep, but it was a tangent to my original point about my preferences, and one I already said wasn't for me.
Concerning Mass Effect, the male voice acting by Marc Meer can't hold a candle to the female by Jennifer Hale. Her performance is one of the best things of the trilogy. If you haven't played as a female Shepard, you're really missing out on these games.
You're basically telling a vegetarian that she's missing out on the best filet mignon in the world. Not for me, great that it's for you.
I played it 3 times too, but don't do female characters because I like trying out different romance options.
There was also a voice acting problem I had with SWTOR, I was dying to play a Jedi Shadow, but the voice actor was so slanted towards Sage, I lost interest and went with a Jedi Knight instead. I haven't seen that in the regular RPG though.
Dragon Age Inquisition, I believe, is going to include British and American voice actors for male and female.
That is actually a good option. My biggest beef with the voice actor is that I go from MY character to it being Bioware's character. It hurts the replayability for me some what since I'm, for example in Mass Effect, playing Shepard as an infiltrator and then a soldier rather than playing two distinct characters.
It's more preference than anything after growing up with Zelda and other silent protagonist games.
I also wasn't a fan of thinking the blurb meant one thing and having him explain something totally different.
I'm excited and grateful for your response. Hiding my Jedi in fantasy trappings appropriate for Golarion is what I'm most excited about.
Dreamscarred did a great job updating the psionic rules, but the flavor always seemed to clash with the setting.
You can expect me to be following the playtest very closely. All though I may not have much actual playtest data, I really enjoyed discussing the different solutions and seeing some of my feedback directly inform an ability or two in the ACG.
Damn, I tried to fix my phone auto correcting your name 3 times. I apologize.
I'm a huge fan of the Knights of the Old Republic games, and played Sentinels usually. Basically Rangers with some psionic ability, probably with 3/4 BAB, but I wasn't super familiar with DnD 3.5/PF at the time.
I also enjoyed the Guardians, similar to a Paladin or Bloodrager, full BAB, some access to arcane level abilities and special leaping charge.
To dig into expanded universe, I love Master Tholme and Quinlon Vos, more of the roguish investigators than the Mystic peacekeepers. The Clone Wars cartoon, if you're familiar hit all the right Jedi characteristics I loved.
Edit: After a second thought, the Sentinels are probably most like bards... Just replace their artistic flavor with Mystic/psychic flavor.
So many good ideas here. I'd like a good app game at a premium price without micro transactions. Hard to find good games to play for a short time when I'm in a waiting room or something.
I'm partial to the style of KotOR 2/NWN2/Bioware, silent protagonists so I can insert my own perceived personality.
If they have to drop the D20 system, I won't be super heart broken. Gotta make sacrifices!
Lastwall Vs. Any or all of the enemies around them.
Brevoy! I'd love to get a GoT style political intrigue and crazy sandbox fight for control
Taldor reclaiming their former glory
Nirmathus vs Molthune
Andoran vs Cheliax
Someone linked the lands of the Linnorn Kings to this really amazing story I wanted to see...

Well, I'm going to be playing a dwarf ranger with favored enemy: humanoid (giant) and favored terrain: mountains for this one. Who's with me?
That sounds like a terrible idea when I roll my C/E elven ranger with the alternative trait Eternal Grudge to get +1 attack vs Dwarves and Favored Enemy (Humanoid, Dwarves).
For the Designers who are reading, but not commenting on this thread, I was really taken back by the archetypes in the book. There are so many different concepts people have clamored for on the forum that I saw solutions presented for.
It really renewed my appreciation for the dedication you all have for your craft. Thank you guys for all your hard work!
I think this falls under the category of a War campaign, and unfortunately, JJ wants Mass Combat rules that integrate the character better before doing one that involves that, like a Cheliax/Andoran AP.
Personally, I'd like them to use the Troop units to simulate mass combat...
JJ also stated it is an AP he's been building towards for a while, and I only know of one or two plots.
Maybe he's doing a new Drow AP, Journey to the Center of the Earth or otherwise, and it will tie in Nocti(mind blank on how to spell it) becoming a full CN deity...
Does anyone else know any other plot seeds that JJ has weaved into APs or books?
Can we move the political and anti-colonial stuff into another thread? I'm really enjoying read about people logically finding out the location of the next AP.
People seem to be really pushing for Garund, or guessing around there, I'd really prefer it up north in a more traditional fantasy grounding. The Kaer Maga urban AP wouldn't be bad...

The Adept/Expert is called the Dabbler. They gain the ability to customize their spell list a little bit, just like how expert customizes their skill list. The Aristocrat/Warrior is called the Warlord, and they focus on the sort of aristocratic style of "fair" combat and lording over strongholds of lower level warriors. Aomidori, the iconic warlord, went berserk after her kingdom was destroyed by the rising successor state of Lingshen poisoning their water supply. She was only saved when Kess and Reiko convinced her not to attack the army of Lingshen singlehandedly but instead to focus her anger and become an adventurer with them.
You, sir, have won the internet this day.
Well, they kinda did that with the Tactician, but instead of an order, they gave you the teamwork feats. The problem is I want just about EVERYTHING but the mount of a Cavalier, so it would be easier to make a Knight Archetype from Cavalier and give us maybe weapon or armor training from a fighter and lose the mount.
From a fighter, you would probably be in alternative class territory more than Archetype.
