I've selected the characters and sent them PMs. If they don't respond I'll look again to get more characters.
Thank you for the interest, everyone.
I will post either:
Another call for a game I'm GMing during Outpost:
This will ONLY run part 2. I may run part 1 after Outpost if there's enough interest. We only have 2 PCs so far, so there's plenty of room for more level 3-7 characters.
Click here and go to Line 80 to sign up.
Since 2nd Ed isn't actually out yet, there won't be as much interest as 1st ed. There was a lot of activity when the playtest started.
Also, the updates came way too fast for PbP format. I've had a game where the rulebook updated 3 times and we had to decide whether to stick to the old version or update our characters mid game. Updates have slowed down though.
The Cosmic Captive games will be held on PbP, on this forum and few other websites.
Level 5 PC in tier 3-4: It depends on the level range of the game you're trying to play. If it's a tier 3-7 game, then it has two subtiers: 3-4 and 6-7. You fit right in the middle, so you CAN play the game, but you'll receive out of tier gold (the average gold reward between those subtiers.)
I hope that helps!
You may want to start GMing with a single scenario you've played before, so you don't have to worry too much about new content. If you've GMed in real life, it's even better to pick that one.
For example, a lot of people have played and GMed The Confirmation. You could try to recruit GMs to play in your game and feel free to ask for feedback in the discussion thread.
I suggest you start with one scenario. Don't start off with multipart scenarios or modules, and definitely don't begin with an Adventure Path. I didn't understand the preparation behind GMing until I tried, and I'm glad I started easy.
Bad news: My only level 5-6 PC is tied up in Gameday Part 1 games and probably won't make it.
My closest option is a level 4 PC with 10 XP. I can put him to 11 after the special ends but that's not close enough.
Pregens are at levels 1, 4, 7, and 10 so none of them are in range. If I can't use a level 7 pregen I'll have to drop out. Ugh.
Start with Wizard with 16 Strength (or Dex.)
At least that's what I've heard. I'll be playtesting Monks with Cleric Dedication to see if I can recreate my Sacred Fist idea.
It's one of those things where I can't give good advice until I get to experience the system firsthand. Too many theoreticals are going around right now.
I will mention it's hard to min max a single skill. It's also impossible to bomb most skill checks, since at worst you start at a [level - 2] bonus.
Heightening spells work differently than in 1E, since you need to prepare or memorize the heightened version. At first I didn't understand it but now I realized they just wrapped the higher level spells into the basic spell, so my bard doesn't have to learn Charm Person, Charm Monster AND Mass Charm Person.
In paizo-0418.min.css, the ".red" class is applying the color red to most of the text. The thread also has "Red" in the title.
Oh, I see what's going on. Near the top, the name of the thread is in the <main> class. So in the thread I linked, for example, the main class attribute is:
The page name is used as the class wrote:
It contains the word "red" so the CSS applies the styling for the "red" class, which turns the text red.
I already heard another thread had the word "green" in it and that's why all of the text is green.
I don't know what's generating that class for the <main> element but it shouldn't be there.
You set the expectations clearly and you've pmed them. It's very important to maintain posting rates in PbP. Nothing hurts more than watching your more active PCs lose interest because the game isn't moving.
1) Put the absent PCs on autopilot. Let the other PCs suggest how to use them, or just automatically control them after say 2 days of no posting. Ask them for botting instructions so you know what they're doing.
2) If this is PFS, you're only screwed for this scenario. If this is a long term game, I think you need to boot those players and start recruiting replacements. Either way, you need to put them on your "nope" list and move on.
DavisESQ, this website intentionally adds spaces to very long links (like your Races and Classes links) unless you put them in a url tag. So if you remove the slash from the starting url tag:
You get a clickable link to Google.com .
