Shards of the Empire. I got drawn in just by the summary.

I apologize. I tried pushing the action when little i could post but job/life have been killing my lately. Thanks for all you do?

I'm still checking everyday, but i have been busier at work (which is where i post from, don't tell)

I think people don't post when they h ave nothing to add. So i'd say we're ready as ever to go.

How would you feel about a middle-aged character (with the modifiers)?
I'm wanting to build a Aldori duelist kind of character who is more of an aged mentor-type. Could I create an older character with the -1 to physcial stats and +1 to mental stats?

Also Snyk Has Black Market connections which lets him treat Sandpoint as a Large Town (rather than a small town) for the purposes of buying items. So we should have access to mundane and magic items worth up to 2000g, with a die roll to determine items above that.

He can also fence stolen goods.
Snyk personally considers anything that has belonged to someone else you didn't purchase or receive as a gift as stolen, but he recognizes that most societies don't see it that way.

Do you need a full build to count my Shifter as 'submitted?'

Tragic Backstory:

Naomi is from Falcons Hollow. She grew up as a fun loving and adventurous girl. One day, she pleaded her betrothed to venture into to the Darkwood with her. This proved to be a mistake as the two were attacked by a strange Bear. It was larger and quicker than your average Darkwood Bear. Naomi was wounded and her betrothed told her to run while he bought her some time. The last he heard of his was his screams in the distance.

When she returned, few people believed her story as the body of her betrothed was never found. Rumors spread that she had murdered him. Naomi withdrew herself from the company of others becoming something of a young spinster.

Not long after the ordeal Naomi began to notice changes in herself. Her hair had grown thicker and rougher. Her nails grew at an alarming pace. Her transformation pushed her further from her community. But perhaps it is time to bring her new self into the light...

Naomi is a Human Shifter with the Weretouched Archetype.
I'll do a full build if selected but so far I'm not planning on anything too outlandish mechanically. A claw based front liner with loads of HP, some DR and is occasionally a Bear.

Didn't the goblins/ baddies enter the glassworks this way? shouldn't there be an alternate exit?

the collapsed tunnel maybe?

Whats our next objective down here? aren't we looking for the glassmaker or are we just investigating the tunnel?

No clue. I couldn't get into critical role and that's the one everyone likes.

I like listening to Know Direction when they discuss game content. Things like feats/playstyles etc from a metagame point of view. So maybe more metagaming or explaining things from a gameplay perspective rather than a roleplay? I honestly don't know.

I've tried it out. I listen on Podbean and they only have the first 7 episodes.

It's hard for me to get into actual play podcasts. I've tried almost all there is and just can't pay enough attention to get anything out of it. Its just not the same when I'm not at the table.


Since those are the old 3.5e rules and pathfinder has had significant power creep since then, ware you planning on implementing any changes or rules tweaks to compensate?

I've toyed with running the five-module series but I'd either up the difficulty or play the later ones down a level.

What are your favorite house rules?

many of the 'crazy builds' i'd want to try don't click until level 3 or 5 (or even higher). Most would either get creamed at level 1. Maybe have a level 1 tournament for best level 1 build. then another for level 5 and so on.



Do you allow VMC? I've got a really neat healer all built but it requires VMC.
standard 5th level gold?

I'm working on a Unchained Monk for the Trickster opening. I'll have it up soon.

4d6 - 1 ⇒ (3, 4, 6, 1) - 1 = 13
4d6 - 2 ⇒ (6, 4, 4, 2) - 2 = 14
4d6 - 3 ⇒ (3, 4, 6, 3) - 3 = 13
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (3, 6, 4, 1) - 1 = 13
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (2, 5, 1, 2) - 1 = 9
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (3, 1, 2, 4) - 1 = 9
only a 12 point buy so reroll.

4d6 - 2 ⇒ (4, 5, 2, 5) - 2 = 14
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (1, 6, 5, 6) - 1 = 17
4d6 - 4 ⇒ (5, 5, 4, 5) - 4 = 15
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (4, 1, 4, 1) - 1 = 9
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (1, 6, 4, 6) - 1 = 16
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (4, 4, 5, 1) - 1 = 13
Now that's more like it.

Guess I should read the mythic rules.

So Roan is the Lawful-Neutral PC in this case and Velzok is his eidolon. I was just flipping the typical eidolon relationship and planning on RPing the Eidolon more than the Summoner. Plus Velzok might have useful intel on Cheliax as a turncoat. I thought it would make for some interesting RP opportunities for you. Velzoks goal is revenge on Cheliax and he must uphold any contract he signs.

It's your call as GM. I can submit something else.

My submission: Velzok and Roan

Character: Velzok is a Devil. Roan is his humble slave, though technically his Summoner(unchained). Velzok can be a melee or skilled/face character depending on party composition while Roan acts as his support caster.

Backstory: While climbing the ranks of the Infernal hierarchy in Cheliax, Velzok, an ambitious up-and-coming Devil, offended a high ranking Devil who was his superior. As retribution the higher ranking Devil pulled some strings and had Velzok severely demoted Losing any prospect of the promising career ahead of him. Turning bitter and angry toward the entire nation of Cheliax and their confounded bureaucracy, he began to explore his other options. That's when he heard the cries of help from some sad sack of a man called Roan. Roan had a dying family member, or lover, or somesuch (who can remember such unimportant things?) and was willing to trade his soul for a little infernal intervention. Velzok struck a deal with him that if Roan would be his anchor to the Material plane and serve Velzok as he sought revenge against Cheliax, Velzok would save Roans loved one. After filing the proper paperwork, Roans loved one was saved and Velkoz gained a valuable servant in his crusade of vengeance.

Personal: I've been playing/GMing PF for around 6 years. I've ran three campains IRL and two PbP, one fizzled out and the other is about to wrap. Feel free to check out my writing style. I try to post everyday but mainly mirror the excitement of my GM and fellow players.

Travelling this next week. I'll be checking but posts may be shorter.

Snyk is at the bottom of the stairs.

Would you rather I throw a jar of pickles again? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'll submit Ivy Dornn aka "the Daughter of the Dryad"

Female Half-orc Verdant Blooded Spelleater Bloodrager
A Nature-themed pseudo-unkillable melee combatant.

I look forward t the rotation allowing for shorter but interesting episodes rather than a long campaign. I hope the episodes keep things fresh.

Whats the deity situation if not Golarion?

Do we have a starting level in mind?

I'm so in!
Are you looking for character submissions or GM submissions?
Or just looking for a solid group of players and then build characters together?

oh hey the site is back.

Heads up I'm traveling and on mobile this week. My posts may be shorter but I'll try to stick to 1/day.

Interested. Whichever you feel most passionately about and confident in your ability to GM.

slow. clap.

die rolls:

2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 2) + 6 = 10
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (1, 3) + 6 = 10
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 6) + 6 = 15
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 6) + 6 = 17
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 1) + 6 = 9
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (1, 4) + 6 = 11

hmm. I may go with the point buy for a more even spread.

I'm thinking of submitting a Rogue with the Sharper archetype from Ultimate Intrigue. A young man who has become a thief in order to survive in Evenfall.

When is recruitment over?

Would you prefer submissions that round out the party mechanically? If so, what areas/roles need to be filled?

What sort of character themes would be fit the location where this player would join the party?

I'm very interested in Using Hero Points. How would you feel about a character that took all the Hero Point related feats and was after all the Hero Point related items? I know the system is very GM-dependent so I wanted to check.

Would a fog-of-war over rooms we haven't discovered be beneficial to the game? We could place pictures over parts of the map and remove them when we approach.
Just an Idea. maybe a bad one.

Count me interested with a Archaeologist Bard.

Does anyone object if Snyk uses the owner-less the Robe of Bones?


Saira has been added to the inventory sheet. You can use it as a tool to update/track your inventory. Everyone should be able to edit, let me know if you have problems.
Why is it called Greyhawk?

I also added a sheet called "Transaction History" for the GM to keep a record of when we buy/sell/gain gold or items.

Feel free to update your own inventory and cash amounts when you sell or purchase items. Just be sure to log it in the "Transaction History" for the GM afterwards, that way we know its been accounted for in the current inventory/totals.

I hope that Snyks twisted ideals are a net benefit to the RP of the game. He won't actually stop you from stealing or selling stolen loot (unless instructed to). He'll just harrumph with disapproval.

Let me know if it starts taking away from the story.

try now

Here's what I cooked up by reviewing your character pages. Likely I've missed stuff.

I can be loot tracker if no one else wants too. Sorta fits the pack rat.

@Oceanshieldwolf: Wild Child Brawler also gets an animal companion, no spells, stays martial, and improves the pummeling of things.
up to GM of course.

I know I haven't posted everyday, but i do check in everyday. I'll make sure to post somehting everyday, even it it doesn't progress the story. little RPs and what not.

Super dot

medicare law is leaking out of my ears

You should get that looked at. Hope its covered!

I loved Mass Effect, (except the friggin' Mako levels), and I loved the KOTOR games. Those games had a kind of "loyalty" mission for each of the characters in your party that fleshed them out and made them memorable. It would be awesome if you let each player as part of their submission describe their chracters 'loyalty' mission. Like their own personal side-quest in the campaign, with new plot hooks, NPCs, new planets/settings for you to use as the GM. Let the players flesh out the universe through their backstory AND during the actual gameplay.

Mechanics interpretations question:
If i wield an axe-musket and have Weapon Focus/ Specialization (axe-musket) does its bonus apply to the melee axe attacks AND the ranged musket attacks? Or since the axe parts says it counts as a battleaxe, i would need different feats. I've seen it ruled both ways.

Considering a Dwarf Trench Fighter employed as a gunsmith/quartermaster.

Count one more interested!
