Its also implied that the Hist trees where calling the Argonians back to the black Marsh, Where they where becoming bigger and stronger for some unknown reason(Probably the Hist's doing.

It is implied the Hist might have been aware that dragons where returning and had decided to prepare for the events, It's also possible the Hist decided to attack the dark elves and free what slaves they could while the dunmmer where Havi their issues..
Man I feel bad for the dark elves... At least until they start calling me names and treating me like s#%+ because I'm an outlander

HOWDY one and all, After a quick Intrest check I've dedicated myself to the conversion of Pathfinder into the Elder scrolls world :P
Now I've been a long time fan, And have played all the elder scrolls ... No I never beat Daggerfall- that game is just so utterly massive you get easily lost....
But I can assure you I know quite alot about the lore and setting! Enough for me to confidently create a game based in the Central Province and probably get it right ;P now- Onto the rules!

Classes- We will be using The Spheres of power/Spheres of might rulesets, so I recremend using one of those classes: You don't have to as magic in tamriel is pretty... Varried

Races- I'll have some spoilers below detailing the Racial stats for each of the races in Tamriel below

Starting level and Gold- Level 1 and 0: You'll be starting like any good TES game: in jail wearing a commoner's outfit

Starting stats: This will be a 20 point build

Other rules: Other than spheres we will be using ultimate horror rules for fear and sainity, As well as Piecemail armor: however most sets of armor are gonna be intact save for those found on monsters or bandits, Aditionally- most mosnters will have diffrent stats than those listed in the books, so those of you wishing to summon, Please run it by me- I'm gonna have to approve it all...

Also- Languages will be a thing, although most probably won't come up unless you go dungeon Delving

Birthsigns- if you're familiar with them, I'd like you to pick one. I won't state their immediate effect but I will reassure you: they will be based on the games lore.

Righto, First things first that I'd like to explain:

My Sigil differs majorly in this way: ALL SETTINGS EXIST. ALL SETTINGS ARE CONNECTED. everything is explained by interconnecting worlds and planes, every different world is just that- a different world, Infinity means infinity. Beyond the edge of every universe is a vast infinite space separating other universes, therefore you can encounter basically anything... Be aware of that

Gives me a reason to use Pathfinder stats and explain it off...

Plus it let's me plant some Easter eggs...

1 person marked this as a favorite.

One thing I'd like to state- It took some digging to find alot of your alignments- I'd like it to be a bit easier for me to find that information- as unlike other games something like that is gonna come into play alot more often.

The selected:

Yigbex The Imp!

"Shella" the Dreagloth.

Telin kingfisher arial elf,... Air elf, whatever

Tak Starscale- the drakobold

Sparrow- what I can only describe as Celestial.

Eleven The gunslinger robot

Zazriel The Drider,

Shedinn Delmirev Undead knight

Haile- The ogre Mul,

Gilly Geitmenn because it would be a crime to deny a background like that

Aaaand that's 10...

Hmm so many good applications!
And yes... I do realize the selections are unbalanced party wize... But the fun part comes from the challenge provided and how you overcome it, even with your Weaknesses.

Please report to the discussion and I'll answer any last second questions and we can begin working on where you are in Sigil, why your being brought together, and who's doing the gathering.

Sons of Mercy are the current incarnation of law in Sigil (in as much as the city guard is aligned with a faction). And Dakon's nominal faction.

Well, That faction represents what I believe should be a palidan: See good in all but don't force good apon those not seeking it...

Anyways, Sorry for the delay on my posts, My internet provider decided yesterday was a great day to just stop working.

I'm gonna go over submissions so far, Evaluate if it would be worth running two tables, And decide who will be in the game ^-^

I might actually run two mixed tables, Or allow you to decide the tables yourself... Who knows, I'm still pondering.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Ssssooooo from thebtop:
1) I Ultimately have goals I want for the game. Your goals give me meat and motivations for me to adapt to my game. I imagine your goals will change over time, so mostly I just want something to play with.

2) No- this is not by-the-book. It's more... Very close to Planescape but overall it's our world and there will be diffrences.

3)any template that doesn't completely make you imortal- and of it does: I will make sure you get to use that immortality often...
As for momsters- ask before applying a monster. I'll convert it into a palyable Race and apply any level changes or such as I see fit. For example- I counted the Imp as 2 levels because of the powerful spell-like abilites and poison.

4)you may reflavor Galorian specific classes/feats/or anything you wish. Hell, you can even just be from Galorian- Again this is our world and differences will happen. Your character can be from any setting, But please be aware sometimes themes clash a little ;P

The skeletal champion template gives 2 hitdice as undead. When do I get these? Undead 2 / cavalier 4 or cavalier 4 / undead 2 or something in between?

you do not get any hit dice from templates, If the template says it gives hit dice- It doesn't ..

As for two tables- I may run two tables that have the chance to tie in later and end up on opposite sides of the conflict.
One good, one evil, both seeking the same thing for different reasons, with different people behind the scenes...

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?

I do believe I said there would be no wild talent gift, due to being disconnected from Athas.

as for a deadline: I dont have one yet, I will close Recruitment when i feel it has been allowed to brew long enough.

as for the criteria: make a character- have a backstory- don't be a murder hobo.

also yes... 25 is quite generous, so Rolling is a bigger risk than boon in the end...

I want to state before it's too late: KOBOLDS WILL NOT RECEIVE A -4 TO STR, INSTEAD THEY ONLY HAVE A -2 TO STR, AND GAIN A +2 TO CHA. this balances out the curious Reptiles- they are so weak it seems almost cruel to leave them so mangled.

The reason for the +2 Cha- Kobolds are crafty and witty, After all Dragons keep them around despite their weakness. They are often described as Sorcerers or Bards and this fits them well.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Ah, So comes the inherit risk of rolling.
Some folks are tempted by the hopes of a high roll... If the dice gods smile apon them... And rather than take the path they know will give them what they need, They risk a gamble... And loose what they could have had...

Poor luck my friend- thankfully you can always plaster a Template on your character and add a small bit of edge to your stats.

I can already hear the lvl 3 Liches and Vampires Creeping up the path... Little do they know, the darkenss is not their friend

Official Recruitment is up

Those of you interested in this game may now apply Here Where I will be awaiting your responses... Patiently

Welcome to Sigil. Located at the top of the spire in the very center of the Outlands- This City is an Icon to all planiars, and a Mystery to all Primes. In this City a mortal man might converse with an Astral Deva and a Terrible Pit Fiend, On the same day! Perhaps even at the same table.
It's been decades since the Faction wars, Leaving some lost to history, and others struggling to Survive.
But the politics Of Sigil mean little too you, A simple adventurer. Your out to fight for glory, redemption... Perhaps you seek something more. Some way to remove a curse, or enact vengeance apon a rival. In the end only the work of an Adventurer has given you any leads.

Rumors have been whispered in Sigil, the City of Doors. Roumors that doors are begining to close. Portals that once led to powerful worlds, Lost kingdoms, and rich cities have began to shut. Portals no longer able to reach such worlds. Any Primes from those worlds are cut off from returning, unknown magic preventing them from going back. Some folks are worried, others figure if such things where a threat to Sigil or any of their planes, it would be a long time before they would be effected...

Hello everyone, I am The lone DM, Your Guide to the City of Doors. those of you new here can become easily lost in the winding streets and dark corridors filled with Demons and Angels alike. If you are not careful, One can get seriously hurt...

Me as a DM:

I'd like to explain some basic Home rules I Have, as well as let you know how I play as a DM. I'm very lax as a Dungeon master, and Find RAW to be quite restrictive at times. And for me the rules should be the Arbitors of Fun. Therefore I tend to flex and bend the rules to better allow the freedom that comes with playing any role-playing game.

So- if you have any questions about Rules and how I view them, go ahead and ask. I do keep most rules, as Paizo does a good job of laying good framework, But if there are any contradictions or strange limits you think should be addressed, Please bring them up. For example- If a species cannot see but has a sense like Blindsense to see things- in my mind that doesn't make them completely blind beyond what their Blindsense allows.

Custom Races and how I play them:

Okay, First off let's lay down the ground rules- Custom races are gonna be allowed for thos game. However I'm gonna be quite the stickler for details, and if I sense any excessive use of RP I will be less likely to consider a race.

How to format a submission for a Custom race:
Okay, Above the traits I'd like you to explain the inspiration for the race, as well as give a short background on what your race is,What they look like, and the culture of your race.
After this I'd like a simple explanation of their opinions on other races- Just the core races no need to go over the 30 something races Paizo has

From here comes the traits and such.

I first want to state that I will be incorporating some changes to Type and Size RP: First- Being Tiny is only 2RP instead of 4, and being large is only 4RP instead of 7, and neither grants a stat bonus. Another thing I'd like to add-on The ability of flying no longer cost 4 RP but 2, however you may still pay 2 extra for the greater speed

And here is an example of the format of like for the traits and qualities:

Type: humanoid(Blurgle) -RP cost

Size: Normal -RP cost

Speed normal 30Ft -RP cost

Ability score bonus: +2 Blurg, +2 Gle, -2 Flabbernak,- RP cost

Language:Blurgleflaff- RP cost

Trait name: Blurlge are terrible creatures who have no stat binuses, are completely useless, and stink so much they are avoided at all cost.- RP cost

Total RP: Terrible

So- for each trait as well as the Ability modifiers, I'd like you to Explain how your race has these abilities rather than just copy/pasting from the race Builder page. This makes your race Unique and ties it up in a bow. Another thing of like to say- you may reflavor the names of each quality as long as you explain what they do and next to the RP cost explain what they where. You may also reflavor certain abilites with different ones.for example: Elven immunities make you immune to sleep spells and Grant a +2 to saves against enchantments. Well you may reflavor this to instead make you immune to Paralysis and Grant a +2 to saves again Necromancy spells.

You may also make your own traits- So long as they dont outdo any other trait and you give an estimate as to what the RP value would be in your opinion.

After you've applied a Custom race I will give my thumbs up or down as to whether you can use it or not ^-^
As for an RP Limit- 20 is your Limit- However you may go over so long as you understand that I may add Weaknesses as a result

Setting based Races:

Dark Sun: there was a Pathfinder Conversion from Dark sun made by Tony Denning and Timothy Brown called "The Athasian Pathfinder Conversion" I Remember finding a link to the PDF somewhere on this website. I really liked their conversions for the races from Dark Sun. I have the PDF On my drive-in However I can't exactly share that with everyone ;P
If someone can find me a link that would be nice, Otherwise Please ask- we will be using the Stats for standard play for any Races coming from Athas- so just ignore the Ability Changes on each race. As for the "Wild talent" ignore that as well- as being away from Athas has broken your natrual Psionic connection to the land

Eberron: there was a conversion I really liked found Here where I'll use the Rules For Warforged and eberron based Races for. You may use the alternative Racial Traits from this website as well so long as they don't Include any Psionics other than Occult Adventures.

Ravenloft: Unfortunately I can't seem to find a good enough conversion for anything Ravenloft related- However you may flavor yourself as being from any of the many lands of Ravenloft quite easily. The Dhampir and Skinwalker fitting in quite well.

Other Settings: Please ask before putting forward any setting specific races- however I will basically allow pretty much any setting so long as it doesn't clash with the theme of Planescape or D&D

Character Creation:

Here's the real meat!

Allowed Content: Official Paizo, and above listed Sources, you may ask about 3pp but don't expect too much.- no spheres of might/power, No Ultimate Psionics

Race:any, See Allowed settings above as well as custom races above.
Special Rule! as part of your race you must specify if you are a Planiar or a Prime. It must be listed under your race and will effect some in game aspects. Any race can be Planiar or Prime. For example- if I'm playing a Human. wizard born on Toril I will have my race listed as "Prime Human". If I'm a Human born in the Astral plane I will have my race listed "Planiar human"

Class: Any Paizo official- Unchained Preffered, however you may apply Vanilla Archetype to Unchained so long as you can replace The equivalent abilities at given levels.

Level: 5(see below for Special rules)

Starting gold: 3000gp

Traits: 2, +1 additional with a drawback

Special Rules: We will be using Background Traits, Background Skills, Automatic Bonus Progression, Unchained Skill unlocks, Occult Skill unlocks, and Varient Multiclassing.

Applying a Template to yourself!: yes! I am allowing you to apply templates to yourself with the increase to CR counting as a Level. You cannot add levels to yourself this way however and any templates that apply a -CR give you their bonuses(or penalties) but don't adjust your CR unless you already have a template. You can only have one positive Temple and one negative template. You must explain in your backstory how you gained these templates and will have to integrate them into your story. If there is a 3pp template you wish to use, Please pass it by me and I will give my approval or not.

Background: I would like you to explain your Characters, Not anything in depth, But a simple explanation as to who you are, where your from, and your motivations, with them I'd like you to apply a 5 minute background.shown here:

1)3 concepts that explain your character

2)2 secrets: one your character keeps from the party, one kept from your character

3)3-5 people with ties to your character (this one isn't needed as much- but you may apply as many or as few as you like)

4)1 goal you'd like your character to achieve, 1 goal you'd like the party to Achieve, and 1 goal you'd like to achieve as a player.

5)I'd like 1 Fear your character possesses as well as 1 Flaw and 1 Positive Trait

For any further questions please ask, I know I may have missed alot for there is quite alot to go over...

Right oh, I don't typically do spheres of power/might- despite my players begging me to allow it. I do thing Automatic Bonus Progression is gonna apply here, because magic items are pretty common when walking the planes most of them will be Unique items or Wonderous items- giving you a little extra atop The basics.

Other than that I think I'll put an Official Recruitment up once I've pounded out the dents and details in character creation :P

Well ultimately- Like the rule of 3- the game is made of 3 things: The Fluff, The Mechanics, and the Players.

Planescape is very heavy in fluff, and doesn't stray far from D&D in Mechanics. Ultimately the fluff and players are the most important parts- with little need to adapt systems to the setting as any system works pretty well... So long as it's D&D related.

I'm probably gonna allow Custom races now that I've thought of it- As well as our forward some I've adapted myself from D&D into Pathfinder.
And I'm gonna separate my players into either Plainers or Primes. The game will focus mostly on RP- since a majority of the mosnters you would normally be utterly destroyed by are just lounging about Sigil having casual conversations with outsiders.

I'm probably gonna start you guys off at around lvl 5 as that level gives you enough power to not have to worry about being squished by small buggers while still limiting your power to an acceptable level. I probably won't go too high level- after all at some point your gonna start drawing the attention of some less than savory Plainers.
The game will definitely not be going to the prime material plane- unless I feel the need to have someone summon one of your party :P

Other than that- Story size I feel like this is gonna be a little freeform and I'd like your characters to be like minded, or at least team players.

Greetings folks, before we start I'd like to preface by saying that although this is my first post with this profile, I am actually quite familiar with the website.

This was an idea me and a few friends of mine wanted to do, But I'm unable to do it with them for reasons I'm not at liberty to say. Essentially we wanted to do a Starfinder- game where your characters lead an expedition to colonize a foreign planet. the idea being your characters are in a distant system that has been approved for terraformation and colonization.

Your party has been sent to scout the newly terraformed planet to determine a good landing site for the colony ship due a few weeks after your arrival.

Unfortunately: the method used for terraforming is highly experimental, and often results in hostile and dangerous wildlife. Your job is to catalogue the wildlife and determine if the planet is ready or still requires terraforming.

Character Creation
Starfinder system-

Races: Any- I will allow anything. I'll even allow you to put forward custom races or ask for me to make a race for you (One of my friends wanted to play an uplifted racoon for obvious reasons)

Classes:well there isn't anything but core: so just core I guess ;P

Ability score: 10 points like usual

Everything else: as your standard game- so long as your familiar with the rules

Please let me know if you want anything awnsered, or a race made :P
