Hello there! I'm looking for a replacement player for my Hell's Rebels campaign. We're about 1/3rd of the way through book 2, Turn of the Torrent. The game is story focused, and none of the characters present are particularly optimized. I rewrite a fair bit of the game, but the story is still the same. You're still trying to save Kintargo from Barzillai Thrune and his dastardly plans.

My team has asked that the character submitted be a Strength based Frontline character. They don't mind being in melee, but are not suited to surviving long or dealing large amounts of consistent damage. Please feel free to downplay skills (especially knowledge), because we have more than we know what to do with.

I should mention that the rebellion is being played out in the background. The leaders put in place will ask you for your advice and do what you command, but ultimately I'm taking care of it. You are a special task force for the rebellion, mostly independent, who take care of the big threats and fancy meetings.

Current Characters:

- A CG Gnomish rogue (melee flanker, tons of skills, trapfinding, social capability, alchemist bombs) comes from an engineer background

- A CG Human/Wererat oracle (melee tank, social and knowledge skills, healing/buff spells) comes from a merchant background

- A CG Elf investigator (melee dex, knowledge skills, languages) comes from an academic background

- A NG Tiefling witch (healing/buff/debuff spells, some knowledge skills) comes from an acolyte/slum background

Character Creation:

- 20 point buy

- Level 5

- Classes: Anything from Core, Base, and Hybrid. Please do not use archetypes that use occult rules.

- Occult, Path of War, Psionics, and 3PP are NOT permitted.

- Barbarians, Monks, Rogues, and Summoners must use the Unchained version of their class, although archetypes are allowed if they replace abilities seamlessly and without level discrepancies.

- Core Races, Tiefling (No Fiendish Heritage), Ratfolk, Tengu

- Max hp for the first three levels, then half+1 for the rest

- 10,500 gold for all classes. Please do not spend more than half your gold on a single item.

- No final ability scores above 18 or below 8 (magic items notwithstanding)

- Alternative racial traits are allowed, but do not pick something that increases the RP.

- No Evil alignments, all characters must be willing to work in a group. Lawful alignments are discouraged unless they can function well with a large group of chaotic alignments.

- 2 Traits. No Drawbacks. You may choose a Hell's Rebels campaign trait if you'd like, but are not required to.

If you don't want to build the entire character, please tell me their Race, Alignment, Classes and Archetypes, and their Attributes (Str, Dex,...)

Please include in your application:

- You must provide a reason why you would risk your life to protect the city of Kintargo and overthrow the new Lord-Mayor Barzillai Thrune.

- For party introduction reasons, please provide a situation where you were near the coast of the city. You could have been on a ship, working on the docks, or just standing on the shore. More information will be provided after the character has been picked.

- A brief summary about your character's history, recent life, goals, interests, etc. I'd appreciate it if you include how they became a 5th level character. This can be in point form if you wish.

FAQ:

Why do you have a Wererat in your game, and can I play as a lycanthrope?
The player in question is someone that I've been playing with for roughly 4 years now and I trust them immensely. Their stats were less than optimal and they are only a 4th level Oracle rather than 5th. This was a 1 time deal, and I'm not interested in extending it for anyone else. Thanks for understanding.

What is the posting rate for this game?
I aim for 1/day, but life gets the best of us all. The more realistic posting rate is 1 per 2 days. If you expect to be absent for 2+ days, please give me a heads up. It lets me bot you in order to keep the game moving. I don't kick until it's clear that the player will never show up again.

Can I use the variant multiclassing from Unchained?
Yes, feel free to do so. Just let me know beforehand in your application.

Will characters that specialize in crafting be viable to play?
Although the adventure path does not give time for crafting or professions, I will try to accommodate a character that plans to use these skills.

What about Stamina and Skill Unlocks from Unchained?
Fighters get Stamina for free, while other classes can gain it from the feat.
Rogues have Skill Unlocks as part of their class, but other classes can pick it up as a feat.

How many characters can I submit?
Please submit only 1 character for recruitment. If you would like to change your character before recruitment ends, please let me know either on the recruitment thread, or in a personal message.

I've read/DMed this adventure path, can I still join?
Absolutely. Just keep your player knowledge separate from your character knowledge.

What is the likelihood of character death?
I won't say it's impossible, but I do try to keep characters alive. At least until resurrection magic is accessible.

What system will you be using for maps?
When possible, I try to stick to theater of the mind. In particularly complex battles I use Google Docs.

Thanks for reading through this. Recruitment will end on the 12th of January. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them below or send me a private message. Thank you and happy gaming!

Sovereign Court

Greetings all. I represent a party of 6 who have just started the War for the Crown AP. Our GM unfortunately disappeared, and we're hoping someone would be able to take over for us. We finished speaking with Martella Lotheed, and only just started the gala.

Here is our campaign thread if you would like to take a look. I can vouch that our group is filled with excellent roleplayers who would be more than willing to help tell a great story, should the GM be able and willing to facilitate it.

Thank you for your time.

Regards,
Lady Olivia Vernisant

DM Intervention 1/1

It has been a week since Barzillai Thrune seized the cultural masterpiece that is Kintargo, and placed it firmly under martial law. That night, several buildings were burned to the ground, dozens of people went missing, and a city wide curfew has been imposed from 9pm to 6am, while the newly imported Hellknights prowl the streets hungrily searching for anything they can catch. Despite the fact that Kintargo has both a large city hall, and a castle, newly appointed Paracount Lord-Mayor Barzillai Thrune has claimed the Kintargo opera house as his new lair, shutting down the city's primary form of entertainment. Anyone caught rebelling against Thrune is sent to the Dottari barracks-prisons, then brought out for public excruciations of various twisted and cruel sorts. Meanwhile, a rise of thugs and thieves ravage the less patrolled sections of the city, and Thrune seems to have little-to-no interest in stopping them. Instead, he declared seven ludicrous proclamations that seem to be thrown out at random. In just one week, the atmosphere of Kintargo has become increasingly tense. Minor protests have already occurred, only to be dispersed by the Dottari. However, today will be by far the largest peaceful protest to take place on Barzillai's doorstep, the great opera house of Kintargo.

Although you may arrive at different times to the protest in Aria Park, the protest is scheduled to really kick off at 9am. Feel free to come with other characters, recognize each other, and chat about your angers and frustrations regarding Barzillai Thrune and the martial law. Make sure to describe your characters as others might see them, along with an idea of their mannerisms or any other distinctive features.

Even with the cobblestones of Argent Avenue and the foliage of Aria Park still wet from the morning’s light rain, dozens of Kintargans have gathered along the facade of the opera house to protest the city’s new lord-mayor, Paracount Barzillai Thrune. The city’s new leader was appointed by Her Infernal Majestrix, Queen Abrogail II, in the wake of the previous lord-mayor’s sudden flight from the city— an event that still has local rumormongers whispering furiously. In a scant seven days, Paracount Thrune has instituted martial law, a curfew, and seven outlandish and polarizing proclamations. These actions and more have called many of Kintargo’s dissatisfied citizens here on this overcast morn. There’s been no sign yet of Barzillai Thrune himself, and the opera house’s doors remain tightly closed—as they have since the man chose the landmark as his new home—but judging by the growing sound of the protesters, he surely can’t ignore the scene on the streets below much longer.

DM Intervention 1/1

Welcome, champions! Please feel free to introduce yourselves, ask questions, and all those shenanigans! Before we begin, I would like to ask just a few things of you all.

Firstly, can I please get everyone to put the following stats under their name (did that make sense?) Your AC, Touch, Flat-Footed, Saving Throws, CMD, Perception, and Initiative.

Second, would any of you like to form a bond with each other? You could know each other from childhood, work, etc.

I hope you all enjoy and I'm looking forward to working with you.

The city of Kintargo has a new lord-mayor, but he’s not someone interested in maintaining that city’s free spirit. Paracount Barzillai Thrune has placed the city under martial law, and his cruel proclamations and sinister plans for the city bode ill. Can a small group of heroes and would-be rebels stand against the might of the Thrice-Damned House of Thrune and the Church of Asmodeus and save their home town from being crushed under the boot of an infernal tyrant? Will one of Cheliax’s most powerful inquisitors make the city his playground, or can the rebels known as the Silver Ravens rise up to bring a new era of freedom to the so called Silver City of Kintargo? Join the rebellion! Save Kintargo! DOWN WITH THRUNE!

Hello everyone! I'm looking for 4-5 freedom fighters to join me in an epic quest: Liberating the city of Kintargo! If we can get a strong group together, I would be happy to continue through the entire adventure path. So, are there any who DARE CHALLENGE THE MIGHT OF THRUNE!?!?!?!?

Character Creation:

20 point buy

Level 1

Classes: Anything from Core, Base, and Hybrid.
Occult, Path of War, Psionics, and 3PP are NOT permitted.
Barbarians, Monks, Rogues, and Summoners must use the Unchained version of their class, although archetypes are allowed if they replace abilities seamlessly and without level discrepancies.

Core Races, +Tiefling (No Fiendish Heritage), +Ratfolk

Max hp

150 gold for all classes

No final ability scores above 18 or below 8

Alternative racial traits are allowed

No Evil alignments, all characters must be willing to work in a group

1 Trait + 1 Campaign Trait. No Drawbacks

A reason to be at the protest MUST be presented along with the application. The reason does not have to be from the Players Guide, although it is highly preferable.

How I plan to run the game:

I'm going to be picking a relatively balanced party, but it's not set in stone. I value story and roleplay far more than stats and abilities.

Although the story will remain the same, I will not be running the adventure path 100% as written. 

There will be opportunities for side quests, hiring companions, and time to deviate from the main plot if the party so desires.

I will make my rolls in the posts, but many of them will be unlabelled or even fake. This is to ward off the sea of Perception checks, among other things.

I will be rolling the character's initiative for combat, and sorting them for ease of play

I reserve the right to tweak enemies, abilities, spells, rewards, and more

If a character has been absent for a long period of time, I will DMPC that character until their return (within reason)

I will provide different ways to accomplish an "encounter", be it by combat, diplomacy, intrigue, sneaking, etc.

I plan to have traps, poisons, diseases, puzzles, etc to further enhance the game beyond "I kill all the things!"

Metagaming, spoiling the game, harassing players, and verbal abuse are all serious offenses. Please play respectfully. 

Posting rate will be 1/day. I realize that life can be rough though (including for myself), so I'm not very strict about it. Ideally, I would really appreciate a heads up if you'll be away for a while.

FAQ:

Where can I find the Player's Guide?
You can download it here

Will this count towards Pathfinder Society?
No it will not. I will be drastically changing enemies, rewards, NPCs, spells, and more. While I have nothing against PFS, I simply don't plan to run a legal game.

Can I use the variant multiclassing from Unchained?
Yes, feel free to do so. Just let me know beforehand in your application.

I want to play a Gunslinger, what are the prices of firearms and ammunition?
Guns will be in the emerging stage, so they will be listed as full price.

Will characters that specialize in crafting be viable to play?
Although the adventure path (so far) does not seem to give time for crafting or professions, I will try to accommodate a character that plans to use these skills.

What about Stamina and Skill Unlocks from Unchained?
Fighters get Stamina for free, while other classes can gain it from the feat.
Rogues have Skill Unlocks as part of their class, but other classes can pick it up as a feat.

How many characters can I submit?
Please submit only 1 character for recruitment. If you would like to change your character before recruitment ends, please let me know either on the recruitment thread, or in a personal message.

I've read/DMed this adventure path, can I still join?
Absolutely. Just keep your player knowledge separate from your character knowledge.

What is the likelihood of character death?
It's certainly possible. Muahahahaha

What system will you be using for maps?
When possible, I try to stick to theater of the mind. In particularly complex battles I may use Google Docs or Roll20 instead, depending on player preference.

Please include in your application:

Your character sheet (or a link to your character's profile)

Your character's reason to be at the protest

A brief summary about your character's history, recent life, goals, interests, etc. This can be in point form if you wish.

About Me:
Hello all! I'm a young Canadian who is fairly new to D&D and Pathfinder, having only started 3 years ago. I started DMing roughly 2 years ago, although I'm still relatively new to PbP. I'm a big fan of Dawnforgedcast and use his videos to become a better DM and Player. I'm planning on making this campaign an even more thrilling adventure than it already is, so don't get too comfortable! I have many tricks up my sleeves. If you have any questions please feel free to leave them here or send me a pm, and I'll try to answer them as soon as possible. Thanks!

Recruitment will be running until the end of SUNDAY THE 27TH, 2015


DM Intervention 1/1 l Loot List

The small fishing town of Sandpoint has exploded with activity in celebrating the Swallowtail Festival. People from all walks of life have come to participate in the games, shop local and travelling shops, drink, and chat with good old friends. Some people may not know what the festival is for, or did not even know it was to take place, but today is a day for everyone to celebrate. Lunch is served free for everyone, the games are affordable for all ages, and the new friends you will make are priceless.

"Step Riight Up, Ladies and Gentlemen!! Test your wits and strength as our contests are about to begin!! Only a single copper piece to join!!" Yells the Town Crier.

As you all enter the festival, a number of competitions are about to be underway. It's a copper piece to enter a competition, but becoming a champion is well remembered in the small town. So don't be shy! Who wants to take part in...
- The three legged race!
- The high striker!
- The scavenger hunt!
- The tug-o-war!

Five years after a tragic fire and spate of brutal murders, the people of Sandpoint eagerly anticipate the Swallowtail Festival to commemorate the consecration of the town’s new temple. At the height of the ceremony, disaster strikes! In the days that follow, a sinister shadow settles over Sandpoint. Rumors of goblin armies and wrathful monsters in forgotten ruins have set the populace on edge. As Sandpoint’s newest heroes, the PCs must deal with treachery, goblins, and the rising threat of a forgotten empire whose cruel and despotic rulers might not be as dead as history records.

Hello everyone! I am a first time pbp DM who is looking for 4-5 players who are interested in playing Rise of the Runelords.

So, anyone want to give it a shot?

Character Creation:

How I plan to run the game:

Posting expectation is 1/day minimum. I'm not a big stickler on that though, I know life can be rough.

About me:

Hello all! I'm a young Canadian who is fairly new to DnD, having only started 3 years ago. I started DMing roughly 2 years ago, although this will be my first PBP DMing experience so please be patient with me as I learn. I've run this Adventure Path twice at the table, and plan on making certain adjustments and extra "side quests" during the game. Rise of the Runelords is by far my favorite Adventure Path so far, as I love the story and characters within it. I'm a big fan of Dawnforgedcast and use his videos to become a better DM and Player. If you have any questions please feel free to leave them here or send me a pm, and I'll try to answer them as soon as possible. Thanks!

PS: I, have, comma-itis, I apologize in advance.
