Here is Horvan, a human warrior with an awkward and developing connection to occult items. Its not his fault really. Its just that sometimes when he picks something up it speaks to him. That scare him and he usually puts the thing right back down.

Horvan is only 1d6 + 8 ⇒ (4) + 8 = 12 years old. He still has some growing to do and although pretty strong for his size he barely fits into his older brother's armor. He can lift his brother's sword though. And now that his brother had gone and become a scribe he likely will not want any if his old adventuring gear back.

Horvan is pretty smart and does well in the small school His folks were well traveled and were always going on about learning and even spoke multiple languages at home.

I built Horvan on a 20 point build but then applied a young template to it manually using -2 Str, Con and Wisdom and +2 Dex. He laos has only one trait. I'll create an alias when/if selected to join. :)

I just found this thread and would love to join. I played in a game a few years back where we started even younger than this and it was a blast. Looking at a Psychic kid who would be a little goth and maybe a loaner to start with.

Dark Archive

Getting close to being done with my initial build. Question: Must we choose a varient multiclass?

Dark Archive

I have been looking but am unsure what Background Traits are. Can someone explain that to me?

And I now realize that there is likely an additional cost to templates. If I take a CR 1 template and start at 4th level I loose out on starting with the 5th level ABP of +1 deflection to AC. Still seems reasonable. It will just put those who adopt a template a level behind on ABP UNLESS that CR level counts for ABP...

Dark Archive

I believe I am going to play an Ogrekin and that requires two random rolls for deformities. Here goes. Using the table from Herolab.

Beneficial: 1d16 ⇒ 8 Oversized Maw - Gain a 1d4 bite attack.

Disadvantageous: 1d16 ⇒ 2 - Bad eyes - Partially Blind. Flankers get +4 to attack me instead of +2 and I take -2 to range attacks more than 30' away.

Hmm. Could have been a lot better but could have been worse too.

Dark Archive

Very interesting. I love the Dark Sun setting and will pick something from there. Would a race from this world start with a psionic talent as usual?

I am tempted to roll stats BUT I am also reasonably good at math and so will gladly take the generous 25 points. :)

You did not mention any criteria for selection or deadline for submittal?

Dark Archive

Considering Raktar the group leader Olimpia looks worried about leaving some people behind but follows orders and retreats. What is that thing? she asks.

No knowledge Religion.

Dark Archive

Would the "of the Society" traits be available? I guess I am indirectly asking if my character can be a member of the Pathfinder Society.

Dark Archive

Sounds like a fun campaign. Seems like you need a "face"especially with even a slight social focus. And maybe some skills would not hurt. Let me see what I can come up with.

Dark Archive

I am tied up as well with my only core character.

Dark Archive

I have a mystic and would like to join. He is newly minted and has never played a game.

Dark Archive

I am here. Need to polish up mu alias. Will be fully ready later tonight I hope. Will post with alias soon.

Dark Archive

And I now have a family issue and will be traveling out of town a number of times in the next month. Sorry to be in and then out again, but I had best drop this one. Not sure I will have the time to do it justice. Sorry.

Dark Archive

Looks like the pre-gens will not be posted til Monday...

Dark Archive

I think I am that 6th player. I have created a goblin alchemist for another playtest and could play it here as well IF there are no pre-gens available. I'd prefer to play another class and if I have time do not mind making one from scratch. Just not sure yet.

Dark Archive

I'd consider joining but I have a wizard and it seems you already have one or even two of those. My wizard is a conjuration/teleport specialist and a Diabolist with an Imp animal companion. Let me know by PM if you want him in the game.

Dark Archive

I jumped on board with a monk/warpriest. If we really need a roll that we do not have I can look at other options.

Dark Archive

I have to make an alias for my new character. Will dot tonight or tomorrow. Thanks!

Dark Archive

I am planning to make a new character. Thinking a psychic. Would love to get into this game.

Player - Skorn
Character - Psychic most likely
PFS# 3387-20
Faction - Unknown
Played/GMed this scenario before: No
Day job roll: Unknown

Dark Archive

I need to create a new character. Likely will be a psychic. He will be first level.

Dark Archive

I'll happily jump on that. Posting here so others will know the spot is taken.

Dark Archive

I will happily take the spot. I need a new low level character.

Thanks!

Dark Archive

I will be happy with either, or both, or neither. Not a big deal to me. I have actually not used the Feat Tax option but have read it and understand the point. I'd say it benefits some classes much more than others, but that is fine.

In a game where we have a lot of down time I am unsure how ABP will impact things. I used it once for an entire AP and found it about right.

Dark Archive

So if we were to all follow a single deity, even our gnome, and we had a religious leader of that deity, that would be a good reason to follow that PC, right?

Unless I hear decent I am gonna go make a Geokineticist and see what he looks like.

Dark Archive

I really like the idea of the gnomish bard. And one that can heal is even better! The only issue is that the little guy will likely gravitate towards being the group leader, which I am fine with, except this is a dwarf focused game.

Perhaps if we have a dwarven divine caster we could rally behind their deity?

Dark Archive

I would love the chance to play a Geokineticist in this setting. Still willing to go Inquisitor or Druid if we really need a divine caster. But if totally free to play what I want I think I'll go Geokineticist.

Other ideas for people undecided:

We could pick up trap skills if our alchemist went Crypt Breaker.

An Empyreal bloodline sorcerer would be a good build for a dwarf who wanted to cover Arcane casting.

A Stonelord Palandin would rock.

Heck, I want to play all of these. :)

Dark Archive

I never win anything so I am both pleased and surprised to see I made the lottery cut. Sweet!

I will bring a bloodrager if we go high and a new PC if we go low.

Dark Archive

Hi all. Checking in. Thanks for the selection. I am quite happy to have been picked. Thanks for your confidence in me. I’ll try to make you glad that I was selected.

First, I have admit I have some to learn about Dwarf Fortress, but am looking forward to it and will get right on it. I have used the kingdom building rules before but it’s been a while. Will review those too.

I am happy playing a dwarf, and can enjoy most any roll. I’d be happy as a cleric or war priest, or even Druid, but want to consider some of the psychic classes as well. I’ll keep my options open until others have expressed a preference. Maybe a hunter/ranger, inquisitor, or slayer too.

Perhaps we should save our one non-Dwarf spot for either a face or int based caster? Not sure if the racial stat bumps are all that critical or not. Thoughts?

Dark Archive

Was thinking it only went to 11. Can you play Ruby Phoenix at 12?

Dark Archive

I ma excited about trying out the new system and want to thank those of you willing to give us that chance. When will we player have a chance to look at the new character creation rules?

Dark Archive

Count me in! If we are low tier I can bring a level 5bloodrager, or a level 7 warpriest/monk. I have many options for a high table.

Dark Archive

I would love to play but would be bringing in a yet undefined new PC (and I am open to what roll he would need to fill based on who else is at the table). If we played high I have a bloodrager 5.

Dark Archive

I think you must mean #9-06 and not #9-05

-The World's Most Interesting GM's use of aliases for NPC (scroll down to the aliases owned by him)

This example has me thinking that it might be worth creating a new account to GM from. Were I to add a dozen aliases to my account they would get lost in the mess that is all my past characters. I having a second account to GM from allowed? Is it a good idea?

Dark Archive

My single post would likely be one from GM Mug a few years back in a Carrion Crown game. He was able to weave into the story, them departure and addition of players so well, and in one specific case did so adding quite a bit or horror to the scene that fit the setting so well but I am sure was totally contrived by Mug. All the players were astounded. It was like reading Lovecraft with our PCs as the stars.

djdust, any thoughts on when you will select your vict.. er, players?

Another general topic I'd like to discuss is the differences between on-line and table play. Things like posting is more like texting where tone and body language do not come across so its easier to be misunderstood or even taken as being insulting when no insult was intended. But also the fact that people somehow feel its ok to simply drop a PBP game without a word where they would (I hope) never get up and leave a table mid game. And what expectations for posting (and not disappearing) is reasonable to impose in a PBP game.

Hi, I am Harry, or Skorn on the boards. Looks like I will be one of your victi... er students. I know, or at least know of some of you from the boards. Thanks for the chance to become a better GM. I am long time player of numerous RPGs, having started way back in 1976. I suspect that makes me a little order than most here. I have run my fair share of games in the past, but I still have not run on-line and hope to learn the tricks of that trade. I am currently a 3 star GM but all of my GMing has happened at cons or home games, including Gen Con where I been a tier 1/2 GM twice.

I have also brought a lot of new players to my hobby, including my son and daughter and many of their friends. But I have failed to keep up with the electronic tools to create and post maps and definitely want to learn more about that. And I am interested in how to handle what I'll call table variations on rulings. I am not sure what is acceptable calls in PFS and what is not. And I'd like to gain confidence in running. I seem to have to prep a lot (hours) to make things run smooth and have learned that I am very bad at running cold so just don't do it any more.

Hi djdust (Father McKinley),

Skorn here (the player of Gordon Alexander). I love the idea of Kingdom building and enjoy everything dwarf. I think I would enjoy your game and hope I can create a PC that would add to the story and to everyone's enjoyment.

About me: I am a long time role player and GM. I first played D&D back in 1976-77 and have never really stopped. I have had a few short excursions into other systems and in the dark days of 2.0 played a lot of GURPS. When AD&D 4.0 came out I was happy to jump to the more familiar and more loved system that Pathfinder provided. I am active as a player on the boards, and GM in weekly home games and in society play. I am fortunate that I can travel some and like to attend cons to play society play. I will admit that, mostly because I have friends that play it, I sometimes jump into an AD&D 5e game. When I do I generally have fun, but still prefer pathfinder.

I have raised two kids as gamers. Both are now adults but still play PFS when they can. My son is even a venture officer. And I have introduced a lot of other people to this hobby. I attended a con this past weekend with two of my son's friends who I taught to play.

I live in northern Alabama (Central Time). I work for NASA as a contractor and have done so for many years. I am an engineer and computer scientist with an MBA and am part owner of the contracting company I work for. I am to the point in my career that I am cutting back my hours and unless traveling have plenty of time to post a couple times a day. My wife is a non-gamer but supports my hobby, I am lucky to have her.

I have played dozens of games on the boards and can honestly say I have never walked away from an active game. I would certainly never just disappear and if I am going to be gone for any length of time will let the GM know. I do travel some and especially when camping or out of the country it can be hard to post. And I hate posting from my phone. I so wish Wayfinder was available for an iphone...

I am happy to answer any specific questions.

Leaning Towards the Warpriest. I think he has less overall healing but can do some healing in combat and is gonna be much simpler to play. So will re-roll those two 1s for hp above.

Reroll of the 1s: 2d8 ⇒ (1, 7) = 8

Reroll of the 1: 1d8 ⇒ 7

Ok Will add in those as the hit dice and create the alias for you to look at next.

Dark Archive

OK I am about done with my two builds. Gonna roll hit points for both.

Hit Points for Summoner: 9d8 ⇒ (3, 4, 7, 1, 2, 8, 6, 2, 3) = 36

Hit Points for Warpriest: 9d8 ⇒ (7, 2, 1, 3, 2, 6, 1, 8, 7) = 37

That is pretty close... No discriminators there.

Dark Archive

Working on it. Will have more time tomorrow night. It takes a while to build a good 10th level character. I have the summoner build but now need to equip him. Worried that he can really only heal out of combat. Still want to build a couple variant warpriests and see how well they heal.

Dark Archive

OK. Working on a couple concepts. I love the idea of a summoner with the Summon Good Monster feat that can summon creatures that can heal. Great for out of combat and potentially good during combat IF I dismiss the eidolon or use a summoning spell.

Also considering an Oradin and a warpriest. Both are more simple but less interesting that the summoner.

I need to know point buy starting gold for level 10, and any other character creation rules. I know Dire Merc is pretty liberal with such rules but do not want to assume anything.

Dark Archive

Greetings all. I have been invited by DireMerc to join the game. I wanted to ask what role you think you need filled the most?

You do not seem to have a full caster of any sort as your sorcerer has a 2 level dip. (interesting build there.) I have a blaster wizard from another game with DireMerc that just so happens to be level 10 (Sorcerer 1/Wizard 9). Or I am happy to gen up something special. Was thinking Warpriest or Bloodrager maybe. Please let me know what you think fits best.

Dark Archive

I'd like to propose an aquatic elf that is a rogue/eldritch scoundrel for Ruins of Azlant.

For Ironfang invasion I'd favor something more melee. How about a bloodrager that may or may not go Dragon Disciple at level 6.

I will post in both recruitments.

Dark Archive

Welcome Back DireMerc. I'd be up for another game or two. I have enjoyed a couple PVP type games on these boards in the past and would be happy to join another. They do seem to become GM intensive though. A lot of my current games seem to be finishing up so I'd really like a chance to add more games.

Was not a fan of Giantslayer. Have not tried Ironfang. I'd also be interested in a Strange Aeons or Ruins of Azlant game and have no experience with either.

Dark Archive

I was not sure there there were two games?

Dark Archive

Hi all. Back from my trip. I have a core druid 4, but she is already involved. Could I bring in a first level core character?
