We do seem to be divine heavy as a party. Nothing wrong with that, just an interesting thing to note.
@Hubaris - isn't there a wild shape variant that lets you turn into an elemental or a stormcloud? That could be thematic without having to change too much.
And speaking of keeping on theme - at the risk of probably metagaming, there's an archetype for arcanists focused around storms and storm-like magic (aeromancer) - It might be a little metagame-y and on the nose, but a suggestion. I think there's also a witch archetype that does similarly, so some arcane suggestions.
I'm all for having shared backstory but it might be hard to work with the trait I've got, but I'm all for suggestions.
Sorry to see you go Caro, hope you change your mind.
@Everyone + GM - I have lucked into a lot of free time this week, so if anyone would like I can help out with character ideas and/or swap out Adriana for a different character & class if it'll help the party overall.
Otherwise I'll work on more backstory and fluff for Adriana.
@Hubaris - I'm leaning towards Inquisitor with an archetype or two and they often need combat and flanking buddies if you go that way - and if we're both redeemed criminals it can make for an intertwined backstory if you and DM are cool with it.
Inquisitor being sort of a divine bard makes them pretty flexible so my build idea is looking like this -
Plenty to work with while seeing what everyone else comes up with - and will likely make a few more backup ideas.
@Ingolf - I like what you've got so far!

Awesome! Knowing that, I've managed to narrow my concepts down to about three ideas-
Inquisitor w/Redeemed Criminal trait
Oracle w/Blood of the Storm OR Tempest Reader trait
Investigator w/Researcher trait.
Just have to narrow it down. How's everyone else doing?
Hello everyone and thankyou for selection DM!
Dotting to keep track between life while working on some things.
I do have a couple of concepts that should work with the module and the party, but I'd like to ask - what is your stance on archetypes? I'm asking as lately there seems to be weird pushback against them so I'm asking for clarification.
Looking to build an Inquisitor, had a concept that was pitched for a game of Hell's Rebels that didn't get picked up, she can be reworked for Ire
Agreed, it's a heck of an endorsement! Can't wait to see how selection goes now!
What do you like from PbP gaming?
Have you ever played or read partially or completely the Ire of the Storm before?
What made you decide to apply?
What is your roleplaying motto?
Okay, well, today has been a day, but at least some stuff got done.
So, for GM to check, Inquisitor Cassidia Tomanasile (I changed her name)
I still need to buy her equipment and do her spells and wanted to ask/clarify a few things before finishing up -
1. Is it just 2 traits or can we take a drawback for a 3rd trait?
2. How is HP being calculated?
3. I might have misread the recruitment thread, one of my feats is blank as I want to ask if a 3rd party feat is allowed.
4. I've chosen 'Chance Savior' as my campaign trait but I'm not sure it fits thematically with the judge, and if you like I am all for brainstorming a more thematically appropriate meeting.
Alright! I have a whole bunch of stuff to handle still but at least the meat of the stats are up and ready and there's a whole lotta room for fluff and such. Comments and suggestions welcome.
Okay, so I'm working on finalizing the little details, but so far for everyone's perusal, Brianna (Inquisitor/Sanctified Slayer)
Rescued from the gallows as a young woman and taken in by the Dawnflower's faithful, Brianna grew into a dour and devout follower as she used the skills she'd learned as a guttersnipe to great effect, becoming a skilled infiltrator and clandestine operative.
Having wandered through Lepistadt before and returning to follow on a vague rumor, Brianna seeks out Judge Daramid for information on stranger activities happening in the darker corners of Ustalav.
Name's kinda a placeholder and might be changed.
It's a little bare but I wanted to leave room to work in leveling and any potential links to others as well as the judge. GM I'm just subbing the judge in for the professor regarding the campaign traits, correct?
When I last actually got to play Carrion Crown (I think we got to the prison before it stalled) I ran an inquisitor, which I like as a class because of how toolbox-y it is, and that's not even getting into archetypes. I have a 'go-to' build that's an inquisitor/sanctified slayer of Sarenrae; they play similar to a rogue but with additionql tricks and divine spells - it's just a question of thematically fitting the campaign.
If I dig into my character box I also currently have a vigilante if the class is allowed and a couple of magus builds, mostly gish support but useful in their own way.
And not to drown everyone out with a million more ideas I do have a fractured mind spiritualist debuffer build, which might be thematically on point but can be a bit much even for the AP.
It looks like we're leaning pretty divine heavy, which is kinda funny.
@Chillblame I think I understand how the alias system works but while I'm fiddling with it, my character's name will be Vrianna, a half-elf inquisitor sanctified slayer of Maraheine. What a mouthful.
I should have more soon, the alias system seems simple and straightforward, just don't want to get too ahead of myself and do something too noobish.
Awesome, that helps knowing I won't have to dig up half my books.
I'm not super familiar with all of the Greyhawk gods but it shouldn't alter anything. I think I have the character/alias thing sorted out so fingers crossed I'll have something tonight.
Wow y'all are welcoming and fast - I've been here maybe five minutes and it already feels like I could just jump right a dozen different games already. It's a nice feeling.
@CrystalSeas - so the usual collection of RPers then? ;)
Just to not tie up and spam the thread, it's good meeting y'all and I look forward to gaming with y'all.
