Will we be in essence assuming that the group completed the earlier portion “offscreen” as it were? My understanding is that certain items play a major role in the campaign, and I’m wondering if we already acquired them, if so how they’ll be distributed, etc. or if they’ll be sprinkled in later. (Though I’ve never played it past about where we’re starting, so my vague notions could be way off base)
I think I’m going to go for something a bit different than I was originally thinking. An Elven slayer who was a childhood companion (and hopeful future lover) of Shalelu. Probably will play to type, going for essentially a “combat rogue”. I’ll definitely pick up Trapfinding with my first slayer talent at 2. Build is still coming together, though.
Question: how do you feel about VMC?
I was thinking gun-wielding Magus (Eldritch Archer). Or possibly Alchemist (Gun Chemist).
I've never played Shattered Star, and only barely played any of Hell's Rebels. I'd definitely be interested in one of those.
I'm in an Iron Gods game, but would be happy to try a different one (the character I'm playing basically uses no tech stuff, so I'd be interested in a build that goes whole-hog for that sort of thing).
The 3PP ones I know basically nothing about. I'd try them, but they're farther down the list for me.
I like Kingmaker,but I've played enough of it that I don't know if I'd want to add another game of it.
D’oh! Brain fart on my part.
Constructed Pugilist does have a ranged option; Limb Extender. Not sure that I agree that the prosthesis can be added in addition to all of a character’s ordinary limbs.
you don't need to take the feat two select a different variant teifling.
Ok. What about the “you may roll on the Variant Tiefling Abilities table three times and choose the most favorable ability.” part of the feat? If it’s one roll regardless, I won’t take the feat. But getting my choice of three rolls makes the feat totally worth it.
Go ahead and roll. I was thinking of taking one of the Variant heritages, do I need to take the Fiendish Heritage to do so? (And if I do so, can I roll three times on the Variant chart and pick? Because that’s worth the feat all by itself.)
Any chance of using the CR1 Lizardfolk from the Bestiary instead of the monster class? I’d rather not have to buy a new book that I’m unlikely to use again. (Honestly, I didn’t even know the relevant Monster Class book was a thing until this thread.) My idea is Lizardfolk Sorcerer/Dragon Disciple. A dragon-blooded Sorcerer turned into (as far as he can tell) something like a humanoid dragon by the Cursed Operation.
I was looking at the original recruitment post, where you say:
I can change it though, no problem.
I’ve got the PBS and a pretty high Dex, no problem. Even without Rapid Shot specifically, a BAB Of 7 already gives me an iterative attack. “Do I get iteratives without needing to spend a feat on Rapid Reolad?” might have been a better way to phrase the question.
I’ll probably stick to force shots, if only for the convenience of not needing to buy ammo or spend actions reloading. I’m ok with that tradeoff even against regular AC. Though it might change how often I actually use Rapid Shot, since those -2s can add up. I’ll think about switching that feat out, actually.
I've gone back and forth about whether or not I wanted to add another campaign, but this is one I don't want to miss. (Also, predictably for PBP, a couple of my existing campaigns look like they're dying. So I'll have the time.) So here's Drahkn, a kobold slave who fights as a mini-dragon, with maw, claws, and tail. I'll be taking him up in Draconic Bloodrager until I qualify for Dragon Disciple, then following that path until I run out of DD levels.
Kobolds don't get a special FCB for Bloodrager. Is there any chance I could take the Barbarian FCB? To whit:
(As of now he's built with the generic +1 HP for FCB.)
Also, I'll definitely be taking a lot of the Kobold racial feats like Draconic Aspect, Draconic Breath, Noxious Bite (not technically a Kobold racial feat, but close enough. How many PC races can get a breath weapon?) etc. Gotta play up the "paragon of my race" line as a Peregrinus.
Can we do a Peregrinus build based on our race's natural attacks? This idea might be a little silly, but I'm thinking of a Kobold Draconic Bloodrager (into Dragon Disciple eventually). It seems sensible enough to me, but since they aren't technically weapons mentioned in my race's Weapon Familiarity trait (indeed, Kobolds don't have one), I figured I'd ask.
Seems like a Grey Paladin solves that problem nicely, since they’re more morally flexible and lose immunity to fear. I’m definitely going to strongly consider that route. Especially since my original idea would likely turn out extremely similar to the concept panegyric posted above (in class/archetype, if not personality)
I had an idea, but I want to check first: what do you think of Paladins in this AP? The "Driven by Guilt" Campaign Trait seems perfect for one (I'm looking at the Players' Guide now, if you can't tell), but given the Lovecraftian Horror theming, it seems like this one might involve some very morally grey decisions that would make things hard for a paladin. And immunity to fear might be a bit *too* powerful.
I’m definitely thinking my application would be Alchemist on one side. All the fun of self-mutating discoveries seems like it would fit right in. On the other...this would be a great place for an Aberrant Aegis, but you wanted us to stick to Paizo, right? Probably something combat focused, however I go. Strong possibility of going into the Master Chymist prestige class, to add a split personality to the body horror. It’s too bad that locks me out of the Metamorph archetype.
