Sturm Brightblade receives a True Resurrection and becomes a Herald of Iomadae!


Please let me know the opinion of your GM, =)


For those whom like to see it all together (I am adding Rapid Attack and Fleet Footed, they were not originally a part of the archetype):

Sword-Devil:

Source Pathfinder: Worldscape #1 pg. 27
Agile, vengeful, and deadly, a sword-devil fights with precision and grace, channeling the difficult lessons of a star-crossed life into unparalleled battle prowess. Favoring speed and evasive techniques over brute force, sword-devils choose precision over power and acrobatics over armor. Charismatic and carefree, a sword-devil makes fast friends and inspires her companions to greatness, even while vowing a swift death upon her enemies.

Class Skills: The sword-devil gains Acrobatics as a class skill as a replacement for Spellcraft.

Death Vow (Ex): At 1st level, a sword-devil may, as a swift action, focus all her fury and determination on a single foe she swears to slay. She may do this once per day, plus one additional time per day at 4th level and every 3 levels thereafter (7th, 10th, etc.). The sword-devil gains a bonus on weapon attack and damage rolls against her sworn target equal to half her sword-devil level (minimum +1). The death vow effect remains until the target of the death vow is dead, or the next time the sword-devil rests and regains use of this ability.

This ability replaces favored enemy.

Slashing Fury (Ex): Beginning at 3rd level, the sword-devil can use her Charisma score in place of her Intelligence score as a prerequisite for combat feats. Additionally, she selects one type of light or one- handed slashing melee weapon. When using this weapon, she may use her Dexterity modifier instead of her Strength modifier on melee attack rolls. At 8th level and every 5 levels thereafter (13th and 18th), the sword-devil may select an additional type of light or one-handed slashing weapon she may use with this ability. This ability counts as having the Weapon Finesse feat for the purpose of meeting feat prerequisites.

This ability replaces favored terrain.

Inspiring Example (Ex): At 4th level, the sword-devil forms a bond with her companions, inspiring them to greater zeal in combat by the example of her weapon craft. As a standard action, the sword-devil may grant half her death vow bonus against a single victim of her death vow to all allies within 30 feet who can see and hear her. This bonus lasts for a number of rounds equal to the sword-devil's Charisma modifier (minimum 1). This bonus does not stack with any death vow bonuses possessed by the sword-devil‘s allies; they use whichever bonus is higher.

This ability replaces hunter's bond.

Untouchable (Ex): At 4th level the sword-devil's confidence and personality distract her foes in combat, making her more difficult to hit. When unarmored and unencumbered, the sword-devil may add her Charisma bonus (if any) to her AC and her CMD. In addition, the sword-devil gains a +1 dodge bonus to AC at 6th level, and every three sword-devil levels thereafter (9th, 12th, 15th, and 18th). She loses these bonuses when she wears any armor, when she carries a shield, or when she carriers a medium or heavy load.

This ability replaces spells.

Second Combat Style (Ex): At 11th level, the sword-devil chooses a second ranger combat style. When she receives a bonus combat feat, she may select any feat from either combat style's list.

This ability replaces quarry.

Rapid Attack (Ex): At 12th level, a sword-devil can combine a full attack action with a single move. She must forgo the attack at her highest bonus but may take the remaining attacks at any point during her movement. This movement provokes attacks of opportunity as normal.

This ability replaces Camouflage.

Fleet Footed (Ex): At 17th level, the she-devil’s speed increases by 10 feet. She can take 10 on Acrobatics checks even while distracted or threatened, and can take 20 on an Acrobatics check once per day for every five ranger levels she possesses.

This ability replaces Hide in Plain Sight.

Seething Fury (Ex): At 19th level, the sword-devil's countless battles harden her soul and make her lose touch with her humanity. Her growing lack of control over her wrath fuels the potency of her death vow. She adds her Charisma bonus on weapon attack and damage rolls against targets of her death vow, and automatically confirms threatened critical hits against them.

This ability replaces improved quarry.

Avatar of Vengeance (Su): A sword-devil of 20th level becomes a living avatar of vengeance, infused with supernatural powers that push her beyond the mortal. Recognized for her battle prowess and unparalleled skill at killing by a potent otherworldly entity, the sword-devil becomes the living vessel of an immortal, intangible, and inscrutable being obsessed only with slaying her foes, meting out violent retribution to those who have wronged her, or simply dispatching her enemies in dazzling display of wanton destruction. As a standard action, the sword-devil allows herself to be infused with this killing spirit. She gains a fly speed of 60-feet (perfect), a +6 morale bonus to AC, and fire resistance 30-. This ability can be used for 10 minutes per day. but it must be used in 1-minute increments.

This ability replaces master hunter.

Feats:

Extra Death Vow
Source Pathfinder: Worldscape #1 pg. 28.
Your fury and fighting prowess allow you to swear to slay more enemies per day.

Prerequisites: Death vow class feature.

Benefit: You gain two additional uses of death vow per day.

Vengeful Death Vow
Source Pathfinder: Worldscape #1 pg. 28.
Your death vow strikes terror into the hearts of your enemies, making them less likely to hit you in combat.

Prerequisites: Death vow class feature.

Benefit: Targets of your death vow take a -2 penalty on attacks made against you.

I was looking to play a Sword-Devil ranger archetype in an upcoming campaign. Since the Sword-Devil gives up Favored Terrain but does not replace Camouflage or Hide in Plain Sight (which depends upon Favored terrain), I was looking at possible replacements (at least until official errata is published). What do you think of using these (from the Mobile Fighter archetype) in place of Camouflage and Hide in Plain Sight?

Rapid Attack (Ex): At 12th level, a sword-devil can combine a full attack action with a single move. She must forgo the attack at her highest bonus but may take the remaining attacks at any point during her movement. This movement provokes attacks of opportunity as normal. This ability replaces Camouflage.

Fleet Footed (Ex): At 17th level, the she-devil’s speed increases by 10 feet. She can take 10 on Acrobatics checks even while distracted or threatened, and can take 20 on an Acrobatics check once per day for every five ranger levels she possesses. This ability replaces Hide in Plain Sight.

I think these abilities will add some mobility and emphasis the archetypes use of "speed and evasive techniques".

What do you think?

When you make a post in a thread, and later come back to the message board signed in under the account you made the post from, that thread shows a dot next to it.

When someone says dot in a thread, they are basically saying I have nothing to add right now, but I am interested in monitoring this thread later to read what has been said and what has happened. It allows you to find the thread easier.

Hope that helps, =)

Subzero, in my opinion, would be a monk or ninja using the Marid Style Feat chain. You get the cold damage, the chance to freeze peeps in place plus all the ninja trickery, =)

This is what we use:

Critical "Fumbles":
If you Roll a 1 on an Attack Roll in melee combat, make a level check (roll a 20-sided, if you roll less than your level you pass the check); if you fail the level check, you left yourself open and trigger an AoO.
In addition, a confirmed fumble ends your attack action.

If you Roll a 1 on an Attack Roll in ranged combat, make a level check (roll a 20-sided, if you roll less than your level you pass the check); if you fail the level check, you must roll as if a scatter. The attack can scatter up to a number of squares equal to the fired range increment. If another target is in one of the column of squares designated, make an Attack Roll against that target as normal.
In addition, a confirmed fumble ends your attack action.

A natural 1 on a skill check is considered a -2 to your skill modifier.


I think Unchained does this quite well with Background Skills, although it is an optional rule.

Each character gets an additional 2 Skill points per level, but only to be spent on Background Skills; the rules can be found here:

Background Skills


My copy just arrived yesterday afternoon and I love it!

Since the hardcover is out, are we now going to see some Hero Lab love with the archetypes, equipment, feats and NPC stat-blocks out as a pack update?

I am ready to pre-order it now, =)

Fey Secrets

That's what the Steal combat maneuver is for, =)


For Yaba, the Unchained summoner eidilon reads:

Unchained summoner:
Max. Attacks: This indicates the maximum number of attacks that the eidolon is allowed to possess at the given level. If the eidolon is at its maximum, it cannot take evolutions that grant additional attacks. Attacks made with weapons, including those granted by a high base attack bonus, are counted against this maximum.


Also, reading the difference between eidilons, the unchained summoner eidilon would not be able to do this since all weapon attacks count against their maximum attacks and they max out at 7? Since it includes iterative attacks from BAB I would think two-weapon (or multi-weapon) fighting additional attacks would also count?


So, it would be 6 punches at -2, one of which does full strength bonus damage, 5 of which do half strength bonus damage and 2 secondary attacks at -5, each of which do half strength bonus damage. Correct?


Like I said, I think this would be the result; I have never had anyone use multi-weapon fighting and secondary natural attacks in the same round at any table I have played at. Nor two-weapon fighting and secondary natural attacks thinking about it.


I think this would be the result:

The eidilon would get 6 attacks with his fists, all at -4; if he added natural weapon attacks as secondary, they would be at -9 (the -5 for attacking with natural attacks and weapons but you would still include the -4 for multiweapon fighting).

The Feat the op is talking about is a monster feat:

Multiweapon Fighting (Combat)
This multi-armed creature is skilled at making attacks with multiple weapons.

Prerequisites: Dex 13, three or more hands.
Benefit: Penalties for fighting with multiple weapons are reduced by –2 with the primary hand and by –6 with off hands.
Normal: A creature without this feat takes a –6 penalty on attacks made with its primary hand and a –10 penalty on attacks made with all of its off hands. (It has one primary hand, and all the others are off hands.) See Two-Weapon Fighting in the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook.
Special: This feat replaces the Two-Weapon Fighting feat for creatures with more than two arms.

This replaces two-weapon fighting for those with more than one arm.

Since the eidolon has claws, i am not sure if he can make unarmed strikes with those arms instead (unless they are retractable).


Hmmm, considering he trusted a demon lord to give him power, how about something like...

The potion was actually part of a ritual that turns a volunteer into a near demi-god for their life span; when they are killed, their sacrifice completes the ritual, a gate opens from their corpse and a powerful dragon steps through the gate and is unleashed upon the world.

The power the individual gained was actually from the mythic power seeping through the gate the body keeps shut until their death, just a small trace amount compared to the actual mythic dragon.

Never trust a demon lord to give you power for nothing...

There is a published answer, in the Bestiary 2 under grippli, just kind of hidden...

"Grippli hatchlings develop into adults in less than a year."

Hatchlings are definitely from eggs, =)


I have an interesting thing I do for backgrounds, using background skills from unchained with some extra bonuses. I give each player 3 choices, based on their campaign trait.

Here is an example, from the giant slayer ap (and a copy of the original e-mail)...

"These are Background Skills tied specifically to your class and Campaign Trait, so it will be different for each player. I will give you sets to choose from based on your class and possibly race.
After that, will be using Background Skills from Pathfinder Unchained. These take up your 1st level Background Skills. I am only giving the choices once your Campaign Trait is firm; after that, you may change Skills around if you feel the need to better match your set choice.

As an example, this is for xxxplayerxxx, Half-Elf Trunua Native Hunter...

Ok, you get to pick one set of these as a Trunua Native:

If you are militia:
PS (soldier) and Lore (Trunua Community & Residents). Lore is a class skill for all classes. The Lore acts as Knowledge (Local) and Knowledge (Geography), but just for Trunua and it's immediate area. If you have ranks in Knowledge (geography), you may take 10 within Trunua. If you have ranks in Knowledge (local), you may Take 10 for checks within Trunua. If you have ranks in Diplomacy, you may Take 10 to Gather Information within Trunua.

Second choice, if you are a militia scout;
PS (scout) and Lore (Trunua environs). This acts as Knowledge (Geography) within Trunua and its surrounding areas; if you have ranks in Knowledge (geography), you may Take 10 for Trunua. In addition, this may substitute for Stealth within Trunua and its environs; if you have ranks in Stealth, you may Take 10 within Trunua environs.

Final choice is you are a hunter for the community.
PS (hunter) and Lore (Trunua habitat). The Lore acts as Knowledge (geography) within Trunua environs; if you have ranks in Knowledge (geography), you may Take 10 within Trunua environs. It also acts as Knowledge (nature) within Trunua environs; if you have Ranks in Knowledge (nature), you may Take 10 within Trunua environs.

xxxPlayerxxx, please forward to player and player; I will send them choices once they have race, class and campaign traits selected.

Thanks!"

Since we are in the homebrew area, I thought I would share what I do. I have two more examples for the same campaign, if you would like to see them...


Hmmm, I would rule that the extra fast healing per round would come under the statement of: Activating a bardic performance or switching to a new effect still costs a round of your overall bardic performances per day.

So, while the spell is up, you and your allies get fast healing 1 at a free round of performance. If you want to increase the amount of fast healing gained each round, each extra fast healing 1 is subtracted from your daily amount of bardic performance amount and grants an extra fast healing 1 to all allies within 30 feet.

My reasoning is that, normally, you can change the amount of fast healing granted each round. The only consistent fast healing is 1, granted by the base ability, and that is what is maintained by the spell in question...


Thank you both! I actually want to keep the racial requirements as it was built specifically as a racial feat though, =)


oh, oh, check this post out:

Please review the below Feat and check for balance, etc..
Thank you for any advice you can give!

Giant Topple
Your great experience in using defensive tactics fighting giants proves the saying "the bigger they are, the harder they fall"...

Prerequisites: Base Attack Bonus +6, Dwarf or Gnome, Defensive Training ( vs. giants), Int 13, Combat Expertise, Improved Trip

Benefit: You are treated as being one size larger for the purposes of determining the maximum size of creatures you can trip and for determining your CMB and CMD for purposes of a trip combat maneuver.

Normal: You can only trip those opponents that are one size larger than you are and count as your size when doing so.

Combat Trick: When you trip a creature with the giant subtype, you can spend 3 stamina points to cause the creature to take 3d6 falling damage.

-------------------------------

This brings the Feat on-line at 6th level, at the same time you would qualify for Greater Trip, which I feel is about the correct point to get it. I added the Combat Trick to specifically work against giant sub types, which triggers from the racial ability requirements and flavor...

Mind Mole

Dr. Anthony Mentzmer is a psychiatrist and psychic who used his skills as a psychic investigator; during one harrowing case, he investigated a coven of hags and was cursed to be shrunken into the size of a doll. However, with his control over psychic residue, he was able to control his size shifting himself and now uses his great skills as both a parapsychologist and psychic to confront occult menaces as the Mind Mole!

He was asked to join Task Force V as their occult and psychic advisor...

*size decrease: Mind Mole can use more than one use per swift action, but each additional level of size change expends an additional cumulative use. For instance, he may change from small (his normal size) to tiny for one use; to change from small to fine would cost six uses (1 to tiny, 2 to diminutive, 3 to fine). His stats change as each level of shrinking, see attached sheets…

Tactics and Notes:

Mind Mole is a straight forward psychic with the power to shrink and modify the memories of those he touches.

His shrinking actually reduces his size, not just as per Reduce Person; he has a different character sheet for each of his sizes that accounts for all skill modifier, size and combat differences. I will include his other size sheets in a second post.

Finally, he can modify memories by touch; however, he must touch the target throughout the whole time he is modifying memories, so if he wants to modify the full 5 minutes allowed by the ability, he must remain in contact with the target for 5 minutes.

When in combat, Mind Mole will shrink, hide and fly about the battle field, as he is pretty vulnerable otherwise and not being struck is his greatest defense. He will also activate his force field ability as soon as possible. He will use his Go Unnoticed Feat to make sure he can activate his defenses first and then enter into combat. He will also make great use of his Taunt Feat to set up targets to be targeted by his teammates.

Please let me know what you think of the team and/or individual characters!

Sea Chorus

Princess Maarinna Del'ray of Lemuria was been sent out by her father as an emissary to the surface world. When Maarinna saw the world in conflict (via the rise of the Nazis and 3rd Reich), she could not stand idle, her upbringing demanded she act (she is LG)!

She took on the code name of Sea Chorus and joined the rest of these mystery men in facing the great evil let upon the world...

Animal Companions (Hyper Flaw: Fetish, coral dolphins):
Sea Chorus has a special figurine of wondrous power given to her by her father and enchanted by the priests of her homeland of Lemuria. The coral dolphins figurine allows her to call a pair of sacred dolphin animal companions (she must split her druid level evenly between the two dolphins) that serve as her guardians, best friends and traveling companions. She is treated as having the Companion Figurine Feat for this Hyper Feat: Powerful Talent. She is able to release each dolphin for up to 4 hours per day; the time does not need to be consecutive and both dolphins do not need to be released together (although Sea Chorus normally does so).

Tactics and Notes:

Sea Chorus, as an undine, is highly effective in the water, as you would expect.

She was brought up to be able to handle herself and has mastered many martial arts, concentrating on round movements to protect herself and move about the battlefield in her flowing, dancing style.
She is a monk with two martial styles (Janni and Marid); the Marid style is her main offense via Elemental Fist. When using cold damage from her elemental fist and marid style, she does greater damage and can freeze foes in place.

Her Hyper SLA's are all racial spells and abilities for Undines.
Her lineage includes nereid blood, and as such she can fascinate humanoids as a racial ability. In addition, one of her Hyper SLA is like a siren's call, further enhancing fascination type abilities. She can do some good crowd control in this manner.

Another of her SLA is using her nereid beauty (from the nixies) as protection; she gains AC up to her Charisma mod as a deflection bonus when this is active. Combined with her Flowing Dodge ability, she can reach upwards of a 40 AC (37 touch)!

In the water, she really shines.

She can summon dolphins to aid her and has a pair of sacred dolphin animal companions (using the sacred animal template, yay!) via Powerful Talent.
The sacred strike aura of Wave Runner and Sea Dance further buff her "normal" summoned dolphins even more.

She doesn't have a lot of range capability, but can use her Marid Coldsnap as a line attack to do her unarmed plus elemental fist damage to all within it, with a chance of freezing those in place as well, =)

She will be very fun as a niche character, =)

Next up is Mind Mole, the shrinking, memory altering psychic...

Strike Force

Strike Force is a former Army Ranger that specialized in European wilderness excursions.

He served as a mercenary (although he has a code of honor i.e. CG alignment) for many years in the fields of Europe; during this time, he met and fell in love with a dryad (from which he gained his knowledge of Elven, Sylvan and was gifted his Black Blessing; she is now his strongest contact).

With the rise of the 3rd Reich, before WW2 started, Strike Force saw what was happening; he wanted to serve again and stave off the worst possibilities. He re-enlisted in the Rangers. He was given command of a Ranger Platoon due to his great experience.

During a highly classified mission (an excursion into a secret nazi weapons development base), his platoon ran afoul of a squad of Nazi Super Soldiers; the weapon being developed in this facility was a super soldier serum! A huge fire fight occurred; many of his men were killed in battle. Yet even more tragedy struck! At some point a stray bullet struck the vats of highly unstable super serum...

The resulting explosion killed the remaining members of his platoon; somehow, Strike Force survived. When he awoke, Strike Force gathered the dog tags of his men and went forward to complete his mission. The "weapon" i.e. serum was destroyed except for one vial which Strike Force took with him.

Upon attempting to leave the facility, Strike Force noticed tracks. Some of the super soldiers had survived...

That was his hyper event, =)

The serum was later used to make the first American Super Soldier, Major Victory; Strike Force was given a weaker version himself, enhancing his attributes.

After the mission, Strike Force took a sabbatical. He went home to his girlfriend and told her all that happened. She helped him focus his anger, hurt and other emotions. Strike Force wanted to bring the remaining Nazi Super Squad to justice. The dryad stated she would help him do so...she performed a ritual, granting him the boons of a forest wildstalker; his colt .45 ACP, military boots and cloak were now all enchanted and tied to his spirit and the spirit of nature, growing in power and helping him to track and eliminate those responsible for the death of his comrades; he was further granted longer life and immunity to poison and disease.

Strike Force returned to his unit, ready to avenge his fellows; he was quickly reassigned to Task Force V...

Summon Soldiers:
Summons human soldiers (actually native outsiders) at +1 caster level due to limited choice of summons. The 1st level list summoned soldiers are seasoned soldiers:
fighter (trench fighter) 1; the 2nd level list summoned soldiers are veteran soldiers: fighter (trench fighter) 2; the 3rd level list summoned soldiers are Special Forces:
fighter (trench fighter) 2/ranger (skirmisher) 1; finally, the 4th level list are veteran Special Forces: fighter (trench fighter) 2/ranger (skirmisher) 3.

The following refers to Strike Force’s summon soldiers IV SLA:

Strike Force’s summon soldiers IV is slightly different due to Parallel Access and the two Hyper Flaws assigned to it. The Fetish Hyper Flaw requires Strike Force to hold the dog tags of his former comrades in life and remember their heroic deeds. Strike Force then summons them as normal per the spell. Those summoned, although they appear completely human, are actually living summoned beings of the native outsider type; if they take damage and then are dismissed, they recover the damage as if under complete rest and long term care. If summoned back before being fully healed, they come back wounded. If a summoned soldier is killed, Strike Force cannot call that individual back until he either gains a level or an advance in Hyper Score.

Strike Force has a pool of HD equal to his caster level for each list level. Thus, at CL 15, he has 15 1st, 7 2nd, 5 3rd and 3 5th level individuals he is able to call. Finally, if using his summon soldiers IV to summon 1st level individuals, the duration those individuals can stay is doubled as if under the Extended Metamagic Feat.

Tactics and Notes:

Strike Force is a very straight forward Pathfinder character who can also summon soldiers to fight for him (the rules for which are spelled out in his character sheet above). Below, in another spoiler, are the stats of his summoned soldiers.

Of note:

Strike Force has learned he could summon soldier "duplicates" of himself; this is his summon soldiers III SLA (which he has taken twice). He further found, that upon concentrating on his unit members while holding their dog tags, he could summon his comrades to fight for him. The emotional connection allows him to actually summon their individual spirits from their final rest into physical form. Strike Force is fully aware these men and women are living representations of his comrades and will not use them for tasks that will guarantee their deaths.

Minuteman

Intern Jonathan Quick was working the night shift when a local superhero, Relampago (a veloces with additional electrical abilities), was brought into the ER. Relampago was critically wounded and needed blood quickly, but was of a rare blood type; Jonathan had, luckily, the same rare blood type. During the transfusion, Relampago went into seizures, causing her to discharge some of her electrical energies directly into Jonathan.

Jonathan absorbed the energies and was forever changed as he ascended into a hyper being. With his new healing abilities, he was able to speed up Relampago's natural healing and stabilize her.

Jonathan quickly contacted and joined Task Force V as their newest Lieutenant and field medic...

Tactics and Notes:

Superspeed field medic at your service. He is a Lieutenant in Task Force V, serving under Major Victory and Bombshell.

He carries his starknife of doubling (plus a few grenades, just in case) for offense in both melee and ranged combat. He will duplicate it as a free action, due to quickdraw, and normally use Spring Attack or Shot on the Run, in conjunction with Hyper Coordination, to make two attacks and move away to safety.

He can run across any surface (cloud walker and wall run) and is quite fast at 110 ft. movement! While dashing he is immune to fire damage (great for working with Bombshell, for sure).

His parallel abilities are all healing based, which work by his speeding up of the body's healing factor. His persistent vigor ability is quite taxing to his body and he has to watch out he doesn't over charge his body's metabolism (tiring hyper flaw).

I also gave him Hyper Peripheral, with the ability to use Prestidigitation at will. This simulates the high speed tricks (like cleaning a whole room very quickly) of speedsters. Since, with one cast, you can do tricks for an hour; I gave him the hyper flaw personal problem food intake. The super speed tricks take up huge energy reserves, so he must make his hyper save or needs to consume a full days rations after using it, =)

He is a very skilled doctor/surgeon. His heal skill of +20 includes his healing gloves and healer's kit bonus, but not the bonuses from bloodblock or surgeon's tools. With both of those, he can get a +28!!!

I gave him enough heal and knowledge nature ranks that he is on the verge of taking technologist and then Craft Pharmaceuticals. That, combine with Craft Alchemy, keeps him on the edge of advances in medical technology.

I also gave him a re-skinned fruitful sash. It is a medical bag with advanced pharmaceuticals and vitamin packs, etc that simulate that magic item. It will grow as he levels, simuating his new discoveries in pharmaceuticals.

Next up is Strike Force, the one man army...

Bombshell

Christine Maybelle-Sinclaire was born into a family of engineers, so it was no surprise when she followed the same path. Blessed with a brilliant mind, she was a gifted engineer and chemist; her doctoral thesis on plasma constraints led to her recruitment into a classified government project on a theoretical plasma cannon design (needed to offset the power of the Nazi super-science weaponry being developed within Europe).

During a live testing demonstration of the plasma cannon (being shown to many top ranking military officers and members of the congressional sub-committee on weapons development), a Nazi 5th columnist saboteur struck. The cannon, during it's warm-up phase of the firing sequence, went into meltdown as the plasma coil was damaged by the saboteur's gadgetry explosive.

Christine quickly calculated the blast radius and knew there wasn't enough time to diffuse the plasma coil for anyone to escape; she rushed in, hoping to delay the meltdown long enough for those present to escape. With no time to don a radiation suit, and with the protective barriers damaged by secondary explosions, she was irradiated by the coil's emissions. However, she wasn't damaged by them...those who stayed behind watched as Christine, going through the emergency shutdown sequence, absorbed the plasma into her form, her body lifting from the ground as it became sheathed in flames...she had transcended!

She soon joined and trained with a hyper team of operators under a special task force of the U.S. Army, specifically convened to battle Axis Hyper Squads both abroad and at home. She quickly adapted to the life of a soldier and worked her way up to Captain. She is now second in command as the Executive Officer of Task Force V under the command of Major Victory.

artisan tools, masterwork: mechanical, siege engines; chronicler’s kit; alchemist’s lab.

Tactics and Notes:

Bombshell is a Pyrokineticist (secondary aerokinesis abilities) with the overwhelming soul archetype (uses Charisma instead of Constitution for her abilities). She can do an air blast (physical blast), fire blast (energy blast, attacks touch AC) or, with limits, her big plasma blast (counts as a physical blast that does half fire, half bludgeoning damage). She can use flame jet and greater flame jet to basically fly. She can augment her air and fire blasts to cause explosions (which are DC 19, reflex for half) or can do lesser flurry of blasts to fire smaller individual attacks.
She cannot spend Burn because of her archetype, so if she needs to use her big plasma blast, she must use Gather Power and/or Mental Prowess to do so. She can make it explode though, just like her other blasts. Her metakinesis ability augments her blasts further but also cost burn, so she needs to Gather Power and/or use Mental Prowess again for that.

Hyper:
She is a meganaut 1/parallel 1 with Hyper Intelligence and Charisma; she has Hyper Analysis, Hyper Following (the military members of her Task Force, very loyal to her) and Hyper Merit for talents.

I gave her Gadgeteer as her Hyper Flawed Hyper Feat at HS 4; it has the Tiring Flaw. Every time she uses it, she has some doubts about her designs (if she had reinforced that plasma coil better, would the saboteurs explosive still have caused meltdown). It can cause such mental anguish that it triggers her adrenal gland and can cause physical harm as her body goes into overdrive).

Her Parallel Access gives her access (hehe) to Intensified Fireball (a level 4 spell); it's Hyper Flaw is Furious Rage. If she takes a grievous wound (i.e. critical hit), her adrenal gland again reacts, hyping her body to great levels but overriding her reasoning. She will lash out for the duration (which would be for 1d4+6 rounds for HS 6) with no thought to tactics, etc. She has a fiery temper!

In addition to her big fireball (which I reconfigured as a ball of plasma, doing the same type of damage as her class ability: half fire, half bludgeoning; I see it as that she has mastered it's use, and can, a limited amount of times per day, augment it without using Gather Power and Mental Prowess), her Hyper Intelligence allows her to stage the battle field to great tactical advantage (Tactical Acumen).

Finally, she has mastered her flaming sheathe to the point she can burn up projectiles as a reflexive action, granting her Bullet Shield (as this is specific vs. firearms, it gains double the bonus against firearm attacks under that specific paragraph of magic vs. bullets, normal against other ranged attacks). She basically can, with a CL 14, have that running 24 hours a day, =). I wanted to give her a nice set of SLA's, so she has an offensive, defensive and utility powers.

Additional abilities:

She is a brilliant engineer, specializing in artillery (siege weaponry). She is also skilled in using the same weaponry. In the future, she will take a Savant grade so she can gain, easily, the rest of the Siege Engineer Feat chain, =)

She also is skilled in rallying her men! She leads from the front, taking point with the unit standard (flag) and using the Battle Cry Feat. Those, combined with her rallying armor costume, grants her lesser bard like abilities. I gave her the Glorious Gorget scaling item to augment her buffs of her men further, although, at level 8, it only grants the basic powers; however, as a concept, that item is awesome for a character to buff others as they gain levels. It also augments her Hyper Charisma and fits quite well into her character concept...

Gear:
I gave her a couple of pieces of hyper equipment from the book. I payed twice the cost, as hyper equipment is supposed to be rare in this era. So, her commlink, smartlight, nightvison goggles and medispray all cost double, =)
I figured with her skill as an engineer, Craft (mechanical), Craft (alchemy) and Knowledge (technology), she is on the cutting edge of technology and these items are now prototypes she or other gadgeteers she knows could have invented.


That is it for the fiery Bombshell, up next will be the healing speedster Minuteman...

Major Victory

Major Victor Standley Proud, operator name Major Victory, was a graduate of VMI and commissioned in the Army soon afterwards. He served proudly with a distinguished record, leading he to be chosen as an applicant for the Super Soldier Test Program during the advent of World War II; then Captain Proud was chosen from the best of the best to be administered the newly developed super soldier serum. After extensive testing and training is his new abilities, Victor was promoted to Major and given command of Task Force V.

Tactics and Notes:

A very straight forward character, he is a brick/tank type; he hits stuff, hard!

Major Victor Standley Proud, operator name Major Victory, Commander of Task Force V (the V is the number of the unit, but many believe it to stand for Task Force Victory, especially considering the hubris of Major Victory). It is a common joke that Major Victory stands proud, given his name and hyper flaw.

Major Victory is a straight forward brawler. He uses his Strong Leap ability to get into the fray, jumping (without needing to roll) up to 50 ft. in length (at a height of 20 ft.). By Taking 10 (unless there are reasons to roll, like clearing a cliff side or something) he can do a 60 ft. jump (which is his max, since you cannot go above your maximum move in the round). Although this is a charge attack, his Pummeling Charge Feat allows him to do so and still do a full attack! With Pummeling Style, an opponent only subtracts their DR once from his unarmed attacks! His unarmed damage is extensive, with Pummeling Style, Weapon Specialization, Power Attack and Strong Warrior.

He also is quite skilled at picking up and throwing objects across the battlefield. He carries a multitude of grenades for situations when needed, which he will target as a thrown attack against an individual target and then watch it explode.

He knows hundreds of styles of combat, and can mix and match his combat techniques to match any situation or adversary (Martial Flexibility feature).

He is very durable with DR 6/- and Fortification, from his Hyper trait and armor, of 85%.

He also has Hyper Resistant, granting Resistance to Cold, Electricity, Fire 18; however, he must drink a swallow of karos oil each day or his resistance fades away. He found this power after bragging (damn that hubris) he could drink anyone under the table, no matter what the drink. A dwarven alchemist took him up on the challenge, and, after finding out that several alcoholic concoctions couldn't bring Victor down, had him drink a flaming dwarven stout mixed with kyros oil. Not only did Victor down the drink with no problems, the concoction merged with his Hyper Constitution and granted him a new power! The dwarven alchemist is now a contact of Victor, making him kyros oil at cost (although Victor always buys plenty of alcohol as gifts for his good buddy and drinking companion, basically paying the normal cost but having a good supply point).

Major Victory is well versed in military history, including military tactics and maneuvers (his knowledge skills); he has mastered (via Hyper Wisdom) tactics to the point he can launch into battle plans he has formatted with individuals at a moments notice (Tactical Genius).

I gave him multiple grenades (makes sense for an army guy), including an experimental masterwork posicharge grenade (1000 bt for it, since hyper equipment costs double in this era). He also has some other hyper equipment, like a commlink, rebreather and nightvision goggles (also at double cost). Finally, for interrogation when his Intimidation skill, or Bombshells Diplomacy, doesn't work, he carries an Elixir of Truth...

Let me know what you think!

Next up will be Bombshell, the flying, flaming energy projector...

Howdy all,
I am posting my WWII superhero team made with the Hypercorps ruleset (here on the Paizo website Hypercorps 2099, and here for the author's website Mike Myler) for your review.

Task Force V is a government formed military superhero group backed by the finest soldiers the U.S. has to offer. The task force was specifically chartered to act as a visible presence to combat Axis superhero influence in the same vein as the Liberty Corps.

The core team consists of Task Force Commander Major Victory, his executive officer Bombshell, lieutenants Minuteman and Strike Force with two civilian liaisons, Sea Chorus and Mind Mole, attached.

Each post will show one character, his/her background plus tactics and any additional rules information required to represent them.

Please let me know what you think...


Dotting to follow this one, very intriguing...


Belefauntes, how is your campaign progressing? I would like to hear how it all has merged together, =)


2 people marked this as a favorite.

I love the idea of a Pathfinder Superhero campaign and actually did one myself; I devised a system to build superhero characters also (after testing with conversions of our actual Champions/Hero System characters in Golarion as a short campaign).

Here are links to posts I made about the system if interested:

First, showing completed stat blocks of street level Wolverine and Nightcrawler...

Wolverine

Nightcrawler

then, the actual basic system...

Superpath System

There they are if you want to review to brainstorm ideas for your campaign; the system is basic but works for my group, =)

However, if you want a professional developer look at superheroes, I would recommend (endorsement fully intended):

Hypercorps

You could easily ignore the technological parts of the system and just use the Hyper Score System to grant abilities (kind of like the Mythic Tiered System) to your players. I played in a complete Kickstarter reward for the game and had a blast with the system!

Please keep us updated on how the campaign pans out no matter what way you implement the superhero system, =)


Pledged! Looking forward to this being funded!


I am really hoping to see these superheroes posted at some point, especially since I built a system for my home game to basically do the same,=)


The Kickstarter kicks off (hehe) in September according to the posters and the designers at the con, =) It is part of Rusted Portal Games and also on their facebook, twitter, etc


I did the Sunday session, and all I can say was this game was a blast! I am sorry I had to leave early for another event, but the system, folks playing and role-playing was fantastic! I had a great time.

It was very fun! Seven players made for a really great game. Those robots needed some electric sleep.


It was a blast! Even having your hyper flaw trigger during the adventure is awesome, =)


I was not able to get into this on the Lottery, but would love to see the pre-gens and scenario as well! I love superhero/pathfinder cross-overs =)


I will be playing Gun-Monkey for this one actually, =)


Why not just play an alchemist and ask your GM to let your "extracts" become "gadgets" instead? Only you can use them (they are too complicated for others to use) unless you simplify their use (via the Infusion Discovery).

There would be no need to look for anything, just a little re-skinning the flavor of your class abilities...

Man, if I wasn't already designing my own characters for this, Ghost Shot would be it! How can you go wrong with a hyper pale stranger! He just needs a ghostly horse now...


I also was lucky and got this event for Sunday =)
Is there a short description for each pre-generated character, like class, role, etc we could see in order to choose before hand?
Thus should be great fun, looking forward to it!


Thank you Sara Marie, we all appreciate everything you do for us, =)


Doh, I hope open event sign up is still today, I used vacation time to be here when it starts, =)


I will be in early Thursday as well, probably before check-in time, so would love to get in a pick-up game!


Come on lottery...
