Definitely interested. Character would be an Agathion-blooded Aasimar Sorceress (Silver Dragon bloodline). Trait would be Riftwarden Orphan (both of her parents being Riftwardens that gave her to someone to keep her safe while setting off on a secret mission they never returned from)

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Any idea on when you plan to start an actual recruitment?

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

I would definitely consider either a Magus, or Hunter for this, someone who draws their power from diligent arcane study, or nature itself rather than the gods.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

That's intriguing.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Definitely interested.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Looks like no one has put forth anything nature-based yet, so I'll submit a druid. I'm intrigued at the idea of the person going for the High Priest Kingdom role being a proponent of the Green Faith instead of a god and seeing how a druidic kingdom would play out.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Going with a unique form of magus/gun magic is perfect actually, as it plays into the Inexplicably Expelled trait. Arcane prodigy who develops a unique gun-oriented style of battle magic, ruined by that bastard Mugland while on the verge of a breakthrough.

The interactions with dead/fluctuating magic due to zones or storms will be an interesting challenge, and the alchemical ordnance functioning as non-magical will definitely help with effectiveness when spells aren't a reliable option.

Character should be done in a day or two.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

I hope you heal quickly and well.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Okay great! Will have something up tonight

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

I'd definitely be interested in rolling up a character.

Out of curiosity would you allow the Black Powder Magus?

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Understandable. Always crazy after a vacation.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Definitely interested. I'm thinking Human Hunter (either standard or Forester), follower of the Green Faith, likely taking the Chesnardo Hopeful or Foxclaw scout trait.

Will get started on building the character.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Ah forever soups....makes me wonder how many people died of undiagnosed anaphylactic shock over the centuries.

would you allow a synthesist summoner. Basically somebody who can turn into a sea monster.

If it isn't allowed, you may want to take a look at the Krakencaller Druid

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Definitely interested.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Okay, Good and Darkness it is.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

I know in 3rd Ed Selune had Protection as one of her Domains, would you allow that? If not I'll go with Darkness along with Good for blessings. Otherwise, Good and Protection.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

I was also considering a Lunar Mystery Oracle, but given that DarkOne7141981 suggested it first, I may instead go with a Selûnite Warpriest specifically dispatched by the church to get to the bottom of the sudden silence, and to bring The Lady of Silver's might to bear, should Shar have anything to do with it.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Definitely interested.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

LMAO! wise man.

Yeah, I used to live in Richmond Hill about 13 yrs ago. And yeah, West Indian Chinese food is a unique thing specific to the Caribbean. We had it in Trinidad as well, an interesting blend of flavor profiles.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Sorry for your loss. You were in my neck of the woods.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Is it two traits and one campaign trait, or two traits (one of which has to be a campaign trait)?

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Chiming in with interest. Considering a half-elf (possibly half-drow) Magus (spell dancer), a devotee of both Mystra and Eilistraee, and as such having a vested interest in aiding followers of Selune.

Will get to work building a character.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

First one is definitely cool, and flavorful. Would be interesting to see how he'd mesh. Like Patrick said he's way older than the rest of the smart device-using young uns. Though he might have quite a bit in common with Miren.

The second one is interesting. Though I wonder what his motivation would be for joining the group, I don't see him taking the offer from a mysterious billionaire.

It's written by Clinton Boomer, the same person who cobbled together these modern horror rules for Pathfinder.

To me it just proves that they should be hiring actual gamers to write the fun movies. ;)

Case in point? I don't know if you like their podcasts or not, (I myself cannot STAND to watch OTHER people play D&D or video games for hours. I don't get the appeal)

BUT, the anime adaptation of Critical Role's first D&D game/season "Vox Machina" has been VERY enjoyable in my opinion. I am looking forward to Season 3 of the show.

Proof that they should let gamers write adventure movies. ;P
Heck, LAdyhawke, COnan the Barbarian, ALL the cheesy 80's fantasy movies, we adapted elements of ALL of them into our games!
:D

Yes!! If you watch the YouTube video of how the "^#$@@# $#!+ Up!!" battle from season 2 translated from live game to screen it's the kind of moment every game lives for, and it resonates because of it.

Big time spoiler warning

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

No argument here!

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Ah yes the levels where 1 round of combat takes an hour and requires a calculator.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Agreed on both points,

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

I'd be on board. This currently doesn't even show as one of my active games, since it fell off.

A hunter is a mix of druid and ranger, so he gets spells and an animal companion early. He can emulate aspects of animals and his animal companion will have more utility, but the trade-off is less focus on combat (no favored stuff, lower BAB, less feats). A hunter can be more strategic in that regard.

The ward part is the truly unique thing. Being able to link to the types of places that often draw a guardian spirit.

Sounds cool, can't wait to see how this all plays out. How are we gonna do our background story? Is it gonna be like, one background for the both of us, like a cooperative collaboration, or are we each going to tell our own story? I was just wondering how it would work in this instance.

I suppose it can be individual up until a couple years ago at which point it becomes joint/collaborative.

Lol. I'm liking the Hunter in theory, a whole lot of moving parts, and a few unique elements. Should be interesting.

It's like a Ranger with somehow MORE naturalistic elements and a feature that reminds me of the old cartoon, Bravestarr

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Standard level 2 starting gold? Roll hp for level 2 and up, or 1/2 +1+Con?

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Heh

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

That works. Now for a last name. Is the setting sort of Gothic Fantasy? Dark ages? How developed. Might help with figuring out what last names sound like.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Sigh. That sucks. Supposedly there's a chrome browser extension that saves posts to be retrieved when that happens...or do it in word before posting.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Cara, Emma, and Meara for me.

I'm thinking Xoric, Aiden, Dane and Rurik, still thinking of a last name.

For wolf I'm thinking Shadow, what do you guys think?

Actually going with this instead

I just realized Rangers don't get animal companion until level 4. I could go Hunter (minor spellcaster, works maybe even better for rural villager)

(1 male. 2 female): 1d2 ⇒ 1
(1 canine, 2 feline, 3 bird, 4 other): 1d4 ⇒ 1

Very much so! Benefit of a Ranger...we also get a pet as a class feature, lol

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

hmmm the type you're going for makes me think half elf/halfling/human/elf of the default base races

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

I could go a little different from norm n play a dude this time, Either is fine by me. Hmmm....maybe a Ranger, like the town hunter/ wild game supplier/guide kind of thing.

That seems like it would work for a small rural village.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Wow! That's a pretty awesome premise.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Will get back in there. I'd stopped seeing updates then two days ago I see there's a hundred posts. Reading through now.
