The little dragon-like, life-like thing hops down from Rabbit's shoulder and skitters around into a position where it deemed itself able to only hit the second werewolf. Rabbit was left to briefly wonder why it wasn't helping with the initial one, when it opened it's tiny maw and a wide spray of acid spewed out in a fan before it. The forest around the werewolf hissed as stinging, potent acid burned away grass and shrub. Even the rocks were scoured and turned pock-marked. The impossible area covered by the tiny creature highlighted well why it had not aimed at the first werewolf, so surrounded by allies.

Breath: 6d8 ⇒ (3, 2, 6, 8, 6, 8) = 33
Reflex Save: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (7) + 2 = 9

The werewolf shudders, body trembling and seizing as it's fur smoked. Flesh had been eaten away in spots down to the bone and it's great snout was half skull. The creature shrank as it collapsed face first onto the ground, turning back to a man. A very dead man.

The first werewolf snarled, but his eyes were wide in panic.

Wow, those rolls definately went in the party's favor.

I'm going strictly off what is written in EitR. I don't think that gives you exotic weapon proficiency just because the exotic falls into a weapon group.

If it did I would tell you to go with a Falcata.

Yes, I apologize. I will get some posting up in the morning. Things have been rough here. I should be back to regular posting again.

Recruitment is now closed. I will give everyone the weekend to finish up existing submissions and should have a decision made in the following week. I want to thank everyone who has applied so far.

Male Kobold Oracle (Divine Herbalist) 4

Not wanting the gore on his robes, or on his bare feet, the little kobold conjures a golden disk of light and hops up onto it. Sitting primly and reaching out for Arrius. He let the paladin carry him over to the statue, regarding it with a careful look. He was not of that faith, so he let it pass. Instead, he reached on and snagged hold of Sapphire's belt. Catching a ride as she wandered about. Peeking past her waist from his seat and helping her look about. When he was satisfied with his progress in that direction, he would catch hold of Adigale's tail as gently as possible and hitch a ride with her. Assisting her as well.

Perception (Assisting): 1d20 + 0 ⇒ (4) + 0 = 4

Casting floating disk for the next four hours as a spell like ability.

Oh no, banter is rather common in such threads! I'm not sure if that has ever influenced if players are selected by the recruiting DM (None of them have ever said if it has.), but I'm sure everyone has gotten a fair shake. Optimism.

I was also in an Iron Gods campaign--joined partway through Book 1 and played into the very beginning of Book 3, I think. It died three years ago. I should point out, though, that the GM heavily modified it. All of the PCs were kobolds, the GM scaled everything down for us (as it were...), and we tended to choose less community-minded solutions, let's say, to problems. IIRC, we killed Khonnir Baine instead of rescuing him.

I have a very deep love of kobolds, and I am genuinely sorry I wasn't playing in that game. Though I'm not the best at playing evil. Apathetic neutral is about my best.

For the record, I am just fine letting other people have all the guns.

Also, I am just learning that to actually craft fancy stuff with craft mechanics requires knowledge engineering. ...glad I took that skill blindly.

Aurical was both confident and hesitant to approach, knowing he was likely to serve as the face for this little parlay. He hesitated, and was promptly ushered forward by Sapphire swatting him near his tail, which instinctually tucked in.

"I'm moving." he hissed back before leading his two, much taller, compatriots toward the front of the temple. Clawed hands held high and his holy garb on full display. "Lord of cities please don't let them shoot me on sight..." he whispered quietly.

He will try to spot this sergeant that Sapphire mentioned, giving his best disarming smile. Which was the same practice one he gave everyone. "I bring news from the front!" he declared with smug satisfaction and no pleasantries. These were hellknights after all. "We have intelligence about the demons movements, and the need to coordinate forces." he continued, "I am a member of an irregular unit of commandoes, and we have information for your commander's ears. On the god of law, I must speak with them."

Oh boy, let's start with the checks I suppose.

Reflex: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (9) + 5 = 14
Acrobatics: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (12) + 3 = 15

Aurical thought he might find some salvation in the metallic object he pulled from the abomination's guts. Clutching it close despite the gore and what not that lingered on it. However, a sense of dread filled him as the device started to speak. One that only grew as it got up to things. He wasn't sure what magic it was working until it was too late however. Howling in pain and terror as he was simultaneously scorched and blown free for Bob's body.

He briefly wondered what made him ever pursue this course of action as he rocketed away, only to have his body fold into Yartak from a sudden drastic halt. The sorcerer flopping onto his back and dumping the recovered metal-thing onto the ground beside him as a means of defending himself. Looking at the group, it seemed the last enemy would soon be dispatched.

He touched his hands to himself and let the familiar glow of positive energy come to his hands. Then began muttering a few words to add to the healing.

Using lay on hands as a minor, and following with a CLW as a standard.

Hopefully I can get his backstory finished up and posted Sunday night. Sinus issue and an extended work week have kicked my ass. I know I already posted the TLDR, but I'd like a nice story snippet to really sell it.

You can try and go for it, I generally prefer to keep most defensive stats within 10 of each other, obviously making adjustments if a character does not invest in f.e. AC at all.

My NPCs fight intelligently, and occassionally break the 4th wall.
I fondly remember having a Demon, who as made from the Souls of Soviet Political comissars, with the "Smite reactionary" ability, which unsurprisingly allowed him to smite everyone with the "reactionary" trait. Which happened to be all but one of the party. Great laughs were had.

Also:

** spoiler omitted **

To be clear, I don't have any intention of pursuing that cheese. I was just thinking out lou- via text about what use that racial might have. Didn't take the feat for it either. Aurical is planning to go full buff/mezz/heal with a little divine fury for good measure.

In other news. I came up with Aurical as a play on gold related names like Aurelia. It never occured to me how puntastic a name it is for... an oracle. >_<

My personal headcanon is that random entities empowering kobolds is common, because few things are more hilarious then fouling up your rivals plans using a Kobold as your "Chosen".

I love finding unique combinations of underpowered mechanics that work well enough to become powerful. Often in ways that people never suspect.

I'm still scratching my head at the scaled disciple feat and what purpose it serves. There is little ability for a prepared caster or a spontaneous one to get the full benefit from the feat, and a kobold oracle wouldn't see much benefit from the stat increase of the class other than to make up for their racial deficiency...

Amusingly it does let you learn mage armor via the draconic bloodline, and that in turn can be boosted by the kobold's favored class bonus to oracle. So you could end up with barkskin and mage armor on an oracle that increases the armor and natural armor bonuses every four oracle levels. In other words, +8 armor from mage armor and +9 enhancement to natural armor with barkskin. Eventually. With magic vestment on your spell list as well.

You could, in theory, make a scaled fist 1/oracle 16/ dragon disciple 3 with an utterly absurd AC who is an 18th level caster.

Ah, please don't take that the wrong way. That was just me musing about kobolds in world than anything. They generally seem much adored by a lot of players.

Looking at the rudimentary construction has Ana frowning and even scuffing a boot toe in the dirt. "An excess of proper material and no one thought to make alchemical cement." she notes aloud, "You would think they had no proper alchemist with them." Perhaps it was her distraction at the shoddy construction that allowed the others to all notice the tracks before her.

Hearing Nox and Alex speak of the construction and tracks Ana moves to the front of the group and kneels down to inspect the tracks. "I would first tear everything down and erect temporary barricades. she reasoned, "Then start over with a production line for cement brick and mortar. With others digging out foundation fills and drainage."

Studying the tracks for a moment she reconsiders her previous statement and frowns, "Not that I am an engineer, but cement makes a better material than this... refuse."

She studies the tracks to glean what information she can and to attempt to follow them.

survival: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (1) + 6 = 7

A strong start.

I do not recall her having a noted dislike for tentacles, but then I haven't been in that act of the game in a while. My only knowledge of pathfinder tentacles involves a different NPC.

Sorry, I meant to write elongated boneless appendages. :3

I don't keep track of many spells when not playing a dedicated caster (Yes, alchemist, I know.), but I do know a few spells I find to be rather fanciful. One of my favorites is a second level spell called... let me check... Burst of Radiance. Amazing range, untyped damage so long as the creatures are evil, and even on a save they are dazzled. Oh, and you can include your allies in the burst. :D

"Unless you make a tired habit of talking about what has been passed down for generations..." Ana noted with a smirk as she began to row anew, "Then you likely have little in common with eldest brother Alexander."

Yes, I am making a shameless reference to a certain muscle alchemist..

"Stay in the boat!" Ana shouted in surprise, "There may be more in the water!" She growled in frustration as she stood, trying to draw her shield across her other arm but abandoning it as she could not manage both.

Acrobatics: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (14) + 1 = 15

Unsteady on her feet a moment, she widened her stance and grit her teeth. Her core muscles tightened and she reached out toward the goblin at the side to steady herself. Then she pivoted at her hips and thrust her dominant arm out in a punch aimed right between it's ugly eyes.

Ana rowed easily in measured and powerful strokes, working the boat through the wind whipped waves as patiently as she could. "Weather fairs well enough for the moment." she noted. Finding her stride as they hit the halfway point she looked to Shin when not glancing over her shoulder to the shore.

"Every society has it's strengths and weaknesses." she dryly reasoned, "Andoran generally rewards you for work and insight. The former more than the latter, to the chagrin of those with more marketable skills than chopping a tree."

Yeah, not even going to attempt that role. Can't wait to see what we're missing though!

Anastasia is quick to look over her shoulder, responding instantly to the touch. She scooped up her pack and armor in either hand and carried them at her side. Her tabard flapped in the breeze as she easily paced Ramona to where they would meet. Setting her burdens down she stood slightly apart from the others, bare arms crossed while she paid attention with interest.

"I hope whatever caused this isn't lingering close by." Ana said, but there was no concern in her tone. As Ramona finished she wrung her hands out on the front of her tabard, then peeled it up her torso and off. Tossing it over her pack she started to shrug on her leather armor. Once the straps to the lamellar were set Ana pulled her tabard back on.

The dark haired woman cast a side eye to Alexandr as he took point on assuming a leadership role, but made a bitter face and took out her spear and shield from the back of her pack. Strapping the shield to her back she then took up her warhammer. Hefting the awkward weight she spared an irritable look at the hourglass shaped head and belted it off at her hip. Finally armed she hefted her pack in one hand and made her way to the waiting boat.

Coming up behind MacLaren, she gave him a poke in the back of the knee with the butt of her spear as she held it up straight. "Best not to get tipsy brother." she cautioned, but her features remained placid enough it was questionable if her heart was in the warning.

Setting her pack down next to the center seat Ana then pointedly sits in the rowing position. As Shin and Nox share a bit of casual conversation she favors the two with a light smile before looking back in the direction of the shore.

It's funny you mention will saves. Ragechemist here. ^_^'' Perhaps that is something we can work on together. Got some commissar vibes looking at your sheet.

I also noticed our party is pretty strong overall. I find it refreshing. Also, Brother Maclaren and her will need to discuss tinctures at some point. Having someone who can brew the primary component (alcohol) seems like a cost saver.

I'm also interested in our gnome Nox. I have yet to have the pleasure in pathfinder of partying with one outside the video games. Sorcerer is one of my favorite classes, and it looks like they have an interesting build in mind.

Li looks like an interesting fit, personality wise, and I can't wait to see how he bounces off everyone else in the party. How exactly that will play out I'm not certain.

In short, I am very excited with the DM selections for group one. Mechanically and RP wise.

I didn't see myself at first and was starting to question my ability to make STR characters after being turned dow- oh wait I made it! Then I started reading up on the rest of the party and realized I hadn't done background skills. Fixed that. I hope I am less scatter brained come campaign start, but am very excited!

Nox looks fun, and I hope we can both prove how valuable we are to the expedition! Reading more as I write!

Afraid not, but if you link it I will follow. Got a blurb up for everyone's favorite gno-me Gil!

background:

Gilwill Amethystdigger was often spotted by his strange head covering. The fisherman's cap pulled low so as to hide his features while he skulked about the mine. No one had ever seen the little piker fish, but then no one ever wanted to see Gilwill either. If you ever saw the bright red of his eyebrows and hair you were far too close to him. It meant he had probably overheard anything you said in the last hour. Gilwill was always curious of gossip, listening in to find out things that were none of his business. On more than one occasion the snoopy little gnome had been caught and beaten until his oddly frail body laid broken on the floor. On others people would notice him sneaking away, the telltale glint of brightly colored metal lures all that could be spotted in the dim light. Most people did their best to steer clear of him.

That didn't stop people from making fun of him though. Often people had a good laugh regaling each other with the time a female gnome had taken an interest in him. She had tried to follow him around, without much success, and when she finally cornered him in the tavern one night she had run screaming out a moment after getting a good look at him. Fish gills Gilwill never seemed to mind though. Despite his apparent love of being an annoying pest he seemed altogether happy to keep away from others in his personal time.

Of course, no one knew the real reason for this. Gilwill was not a gnome. Gilwill was Kib Redtail. A misbegotten kobold who snuck out from his tribe's cave one day and returned to find they had left him and his dangerous daytime explorations behind them. He had gone into the dark after them, gotten lost, and ended up crawling back to the surface a different way! Finding himself among the various miners of Diamond Lake, the panicked kobold enacted a brilliant disguise. To blend in with those around him, he dug the ore like those around him! Then, as the shift ended and the miners shuffled out with their loads Kib reluctantly followed. The next thing the confused kobold knew he was being paid. Not fully understanding (But not arguing with his good fortune!) he scampered merrily out and even managed to get some delicious salted fish!

Learning to live on the surface was scary. All the enemies of his race lived and moved about him in numbers he couldn't believe! Kib liked digging though. Kib liked secrets too. Kib especially liked getting paid money to dig and learn secrets! He got to eat fish regularly, and on rare occasions could even afford alchohal. The latter led to more than one mistake on his part, and his disguise had slipped once or twice. Thankfully, he had never been without his disguise and his telltale hat at the same time. Barring one unfortunate time he had been found out by a female gnome. Gno worries though! She had run screaming away and never returned!

Found a trait that gives disguise as a class skill. Then there is disguise self for emergencies. Oh, and kobolds make accomplished miners and can get a little bump on class skills that use charisma. Setting this up mechanically is proving to be very amusing!

I have seen more than one person using lamellar (leather) armor and at least one who had a higher dexterity modifier than it supports. It's certainly not a matter of budget or min/maxing, so is it a stylistic choice? Is there a mechanic I am unaware of? I have never really tried using it as I tend to stick to the more default armor options.

So I have had issues logging in since my last post. Figured others might be having the same issue? Takes you back to the previous screen? Well, I read a helpful tip that got me back in.

Clear cookies and add an item to the cart in the store. It will then let you log in. Remove the item from cart and browse safely logged in. Hope that helps if anyone is struggling like I was.

Shiyara I found an archtype that might work. It's a magus archtype called hexcrafter (I think that was the name.) that gets access to some hexes. Riving Strike would definitely help with spell DCs. Cornugon, Riving, and then hexcrafter also gets access to curses. Wouldn't really come into it's own for a while, but could mez for other casters early.
