This looks very interesting and a good chance to learn how the rules for this new edition play out. Below I have a concept I am interested in.

Name: Baolo Kasiger
Class and background: Human Fighter with the Truth Seeker Background
Why does your character want to be an adventurer? Raised on tales that seem to contradict the accepted history of Breachill, Baolo seeks adventure not for the fame and glory that most seek, but to apply his skills in order to root out the hidden truths of local history.
What will your character contribute to the party in and out of battle? As a fighter, Baolo would be able to lend his skill in weapons and defense to the fight. I will probably be trying out a weapon and shield focus with this character. Outside of combat, his understanding of town politics, and respect for the law, means that any investigation that occurs will likely be advanced by him, but done in such a way that only those unlawfuls who deserve to be embarrassed by what is discovered would be.

Brief Background:
Raised on the stories of his grandmother, Baolo learned early on that there were some inconsistencies between the stories of the town that he grew up with and the official accounts of history believed by those around him and held in the Archives. As such, from a young age Baolo would often get in trouble by challenging common beliefs held by the town. The belief he held that had turned him into the local black sheep of the town was that the town’s founder, as great of a man as he was...had been a con man on the run and had saved their ancestors as much to save his own ass as to help make the town what it is today. These beliefs, fueled by the stories he was told of his great-great grandmother’s life earned him the name Rumormill.

As a child, he didn’t take kindly to the name. However, as he grew Baolo became inured to such ridicule and learned from those few who still called him friend to better navigate the politics of such sensitive subjects. Indeed, it was better to be considered the black sheep of the small town, tip-toeing and charming when he needed to than to have to believe the alternative...that his grandmother’s tales were just the rambling of an addled old woman. So he began keeping his thoughts to himself, and conducting his own investigations into the town’s history as much to find the truth for himself as to clear his family’s name of the vile that was still directed towards him to this day. Comporting himself as such earned him a low position in the town guard, where he learned to use a variety or weapons and armor, and could keep his ear close to the local happenings.

Writing sample:
Baolo’s shift had been rather uneventful…which was perfect for the young guardsman. Not having to sort out a local brawl at Cayden’s Keg or help provide protection detail for Quentino Posandi as he went about council business meant that he had had time to pay a visit to Reliant Books. While there weren’t many books that Baolo was able to comprehend, a few Taldane history texts existed in their inventory that Vox allowed him to borrow. As someone who had made a name for himself challenging the local history of his hometown, Vox was one of the few who still talked to Baolo in a friendly tone. So he had been able to read through a manuscript Vox had received that day, “From Chitterwood to the Five Kings Mountains”.

Once done there, he headed to visit Jorell and see if a small bit of history he had picked up from that manuscript lined up with what was available in the Archives. Baolo just hoped that the half-orc archivist was either too busy or in the right mood for a debate to allow for the young man's presence in the building.


I have been wanting to play through this game for some time. I have an idea for a cleric of Cayden Cailean bar owner who keeps his fair in the Drunken Hero specter that should work well for this campaign.


This sounds like an interesting idea and I would be interested in participating.


The concept for the game sounds very intriguing and I have an interesting idea for a rogue or ranger/witch

Lets roll them bones!

4d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 6, 1) = 14
4d6 ⇒ (2, 4, 2, 1) = 9
4d6 ⇒ (6, 4, 6, 3) = 19
4d6 ⇒ (3, 2, 6, 3) = 14
4d6 ⇒ (6, 5, 6, 1) = 18
4d6 ⇒ (4, 6, 5, 3) = 18
4d6 ⇒ (5, 1, 3, 2) = 11

Looks like 13, 8, 14, 12, 17, 15 I can definitely work with that!


Definitely interested in applying. I am putting together a Tiefling Alley Witch from the Devil Nursery area of Kintargo, for your review. I should have it for you before the end of the day.


Baolo simply looked on in interest, indeed, the man was more built for throwing his weight around, not to come up with good escape plans. However, after a moment of listening, trying to wrap his head around the concept of what adamant might be that it could become a wire, the big man did add, "I ain't too good at slipping from chains and haven't tried breaking chain links before. But maybe the chains can be pulled from the wall...or the like?"


I have wanted to play through this AP for some time and have a few concepts that should work for this game. Let's see what the Focus and Foible method delivers.

Strength: Focus
Dexterity: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (6) + 7 = 13
Constitution: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (4) + 7 = 11
Intelligence: Foible
Wisdom: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (5) + 7 = 12
Charisma: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (6) + 7 = 13

EDIT: Not stellar rolls, but should make for an interesting character. Thinking of a murdering ranger or barbarian.


This is one of the APs I have yet had the opportunity to participate in. I have an idea for a drunken barbarian of some sort that would be fun to roleplay. Will get a profile put together for review asap.


I have yet to play in any of these APs. That said, I think Legacy of Fire or Council of Thieves would be quite interesting to participate in.


This sounds like a good campaign to try out a Blade and tankard style Fighter. Will get a profile and character sheet put together for your review.


Definitely interested. I have an idea for a Cleric of Cayden Cailean I will put together for your review. First of all:

Stat Rolls:
4d6 ⇒ (4, 2, 4, 6) = 16 14
4d6 ⇒ (3, 2, 2, 3) = 10 8
4d6 ⇒ (6, 3, 5, 5) = 19 16
4d6 ⇒ (3, 6, 3, 3) = 15 12
4d6 ⇒ (3, 6, 5, 4) = 18 15
4d6 ⇒ (2, 4, 2, 4) = 12 10
4d6 ⇒ (3, 1, 3, 2) = 9

In case the above set is outside of the floor or ceiling:

4d6 ⇒ (5, 1, 1, 1) = 8
4d6 ⇒ (4, 5, 4, 2) = 15
4d6 ⇒ (6, 6, 3, 5) = 20
4d6 ⇒ (5, 4, 5, 1) = 15
4d6 ⇒ (3, 2, 6, 6) = 17
4d6 ⇒ (2, 3, 4, 4) = 13
4d6 ⇒ (2, 6, 2, 1) = 11

EDIT: Looks like the 1st roll does it.


Definitely interested in this. Will put together a Dwarven exile Druid who has been using his talents to help a small human community on the border between Brevoy and the Stolen Lands. He would join the expedition in an effort to not only reduce the bandit attacks in south Rostland, but also to ensure that the wilds of the Greenbelt are minimally impacted by exploration and colonization efforts.


Quick question, are we using the casting traditions optional rules with its drawbacks and boons? Just wondering because I have an interesting ideas for an Incanter who uses a uniquely minted coin that has the emblem of House Lebeda on it as a focus for his casting.


Expressing my interest in this campaign. I have started reading more into the Spheres of Power and it sounds like a very interesting system. I have a few ideas rattling about my head that I will work to narrow down to one application.


Hi there, not sure if you are still recruiting for this, but I am interested in participating if you are.


Hi there,

Are you still on the lookout for a rogue? I have always wanted to take part in a RA campaign and have an interesting concept for an old-school rogue that might work.


Hi all,

Thank you for having me aboard. I took a look at Randall and I have to say that he seems like a rather interesting character. Will take a closer look at him tomorrow, but think that I will stick with this character to help keep with continuity. I will put together a profile and look forward to role playing with you all.


I don't have the bandwidth to DM at the moment. However, I would be interested in playing the character that was a GMPC, if a new GM is located.


I have a idea for an Human Egorian Academy Infernal Binder archetype Wizard coming to mind that could be interesting to play after I flesh him out a bid. Will get something put together for your review GM Fez.


I have an interesting concept for a Storm Druid that I will put together for review.


This is an AP that I have always wanted to play in. I have a few character concepts that would be fun to play. Let me see what the stat rolls give me to work with and I will put one of the concepts together for your review.

State: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 5) + 6 = 14
State: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 4) + 6 = 14
State: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 5) + 6 = 14
State: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 2) + 6 = 10
State: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 1) + 6 = 11
State: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 4) + 6 = 13


Shackled City! Awesome. Played this once shortly after it came out, but didn't get very into the opening segment before it fell apart. I have a few ideas for a cleric of Abadar or a rogue both an investigating, detective type. Let me see what the rolls say:

4d6 ⇒ (4, 6, 3, 3) = 16
4d6 ⇒ (1, 3, 1, 6) = 11
4d6 ⇒ (4, 4, 1, 5) = 14
4d6 ⇒ (6, 6, 2, 5) = 19
4d6 ⇒ (1, 2, 1, 4) = 8
4d6 ⇒ (2, 6, 3, 6) = 17

Plus a few re-rolls, just in case:

1d6 ⇒ 4
1d6 ⇒ 3
1d6 ⇒ 2
1d6 ⇒ 1

EDIT: If I did this right, that should be a set of 13,13,13,17,15,9. Definitely adequate for the ideas I have. I will put a character together as soon as I can.


I have an interesting idea for a borderline Pesh addicted fighter that might fit well with this campaign. I will get a profile put together as soon as possible.


Hello Paladin,

I am thinking of going Ranger instead. What is your view on using one of the Faith oriented combat styles outlined in Inner Sea Combat. Specifically, I am looking at using the feats outlined below for the Ranger's combat style feats.

1st level: Catch Off-Guard, Combat Expertise, Combat Reflexes, and Weapon Finesse. 6th level:Improved Disarm and Lunge. 10th level: Disarming Strike and Improved Critical (rapier) to the list.


Narrowed down my concept to either a Tactician Archetype Fighter who has renounced his noble family due to conflicting beliefs or a Wizard of some sort who has long had an academic interest in the history of Kintargo's political dynamics. Seems I have a few things to think about before fleshing out a character further.


I have had a few character concepts brewing around in my head for this campaign for some time now. Let's see is Boons will help narrow down my ideas.

Boon 1: 1d30 ⇒ 14
Boon 2: 1d30 ⇒ 6

EDIT: So an extra non-combat feat and able to use Words of Power for spell casting. Not very familiar with Words of Power, so I will look into that and come back with a character concept. By the way, feel free to make all the Les Mis references you like. I am a big fan!


Hello GM Rutseg,

Below is the information you requested as my application for this campaign.

What kind of player you are?: I am an experienced player to both in-person and PbP gaming who enjoys a balance of role-play and roll-play. I see the gaming experience and story development as a group effort. I prefer to not hog the spotlight, in order for the experience to be fun for everyone. I like to get into the heads of the characters I create and play the stats and alignments of my character sensibly. I am not know for one sentence posts and like to provide descriptive words for all actions my character takes.

What is your favourite campaign setting?: I started roleplaying with TSR/WotC and the Greyhawk setting. Though I would probably consider the Pathfinder setting to be my favorite at the moment. The effort that the writers put in to fleshing out the culture and politics of the different regions is part of what draws me to the setting. That being said, Shackled City is a campaign that I have wanted to play through fully since it was first released.

Have you ever played or read partially or completely the Shackled City before?: I have played through a part of the first adventure. However, the game ended prematurely in mid-2010, with the PCs around level 3 and I don't recall many of the details of the content. The game did take place on the Paizo forums though if you would like to browse them. Though the profile has since been re-purposed for a Kingmaker game that ended before it even began, the character name was Borden Alhurst.

What made you decide to apply?: As mentioned previously, this campaign is one that I have wanted to play through fully for some time now as my limited experience with the campaign, as well as reviews from others who have played through it have left a good impression with me.

Some of my Paizo character profiles have been repurposed with others created for an application that either didn't make the cut, or was for a game that fell through at or before game start. As you browse my characters and posting experience, please feel free to peruse other forums I have posted on. I have linked one below.

Skulls and Shackles Campaign

I hope you enjoy what you see and look forward to seeing who you pick to participate in this campaign.


Definitely interested. I will ponder the variety of piratey concepts I have brewing in my head and put together a fleshed out concept once I find one that calls to me.


Don't you hate it when you can't decide which character would be more fun to play? Now I am torn between a Tactician Fighter and a Mastermind Investigator.


I am definitely interesting in participating in this. Not certain what I will play, but I am thinking a Human Rogue or Investigator. He would possible be a member of House Lebeda, a merchant looking to use the charter as a way to lay the groundwork to expand his family's network.

Lukasz's name is not only frustrating on it's own, but downright impossible when you try to make it possessive...

Not sure if I can change the profile name now, but since you are not the only one who has voiced concern over this, I don't mind if everyone uses more English spellings of the name (Lucas, etc.), though I think it is pronounced more like Lucash. I have a Polish friend with that name and just thought it was pretty cool.

In any case, my plan would be a charisma-over-wis-focused hangover cleric of Besmara (so good face skills, etc). If we have a higher starting level or an expected accelerated start, I'll go with the Evangelist archetype, otherwise waiting until level 3 to channel is brutal.

With all the characters being clerics, not having Channels right away on one or two characters isn't as big of a deal.

I have an idea for a cleric of Besmara that I will submit as soon as possible. I am thinking he will be a half-elf Cleric (Divine Strategist Archetype possibly).


This concept sounds very interesting! I will keep an eye out for recruitment threads as they come up.


Korak The Boisterous wrote:
Unholy Barrister approved, you realize that's actually from this adventure path yeah?

Yep. I have applied to this AP before where the DM didn't allow it however, so I just wanted to be sure. I will get a character put together as soon as I can.


This looks interesting. I have an concept for a Cleric that I will put together. He would begin as a 1 Aristocrat/1 Adept who would transition into a Cleric as the story progresses. Would it be possible to use the Unholy Barrister Cleric Archetype?


I have a few concepts in mind that I will describe quickly:

-A Mwangi witch, hailing from a small community from the jungles of the Expanse, Abenoe and his "pet" monkey are traveling on the Jenivere to trade for some rare ingredients needed to heal the sickness that is affecting his young son.

-A Chelaxian fighter, Rast is heading to Eleder to chase the stories he had heard of the wonders in the jungles of the region. His true reason for leaving Westcrown was to escape the Hell Knights who had discovered and killed the group of freedom fighters he had associated with. Unfamiliar with the region and unprepared for what he might face, Rast only has a map he took from a cartographer in Westcrown to guide him. However, he is determined to make something of this new life of his.

I have experience with several PBEM games and like to be very descriptive, when I have the time. I can post frequently and am very good at communicating when I will be delayed in contributing.


To those that might be wary of a PBEM format, I have participated in several of this style of roleplay and it really provides opportunity to develop and roleplay your characters unique characteristics. Helping to make them more than just a group of stats on a piece of paper.


I would be very interested in participating in a Throne of Night or a Kingsmaker PBEM as I have a concept for each of these games that I think would be fun to play. However, if a bulk of the group would prefer to play Serpent Skulls, I am sure that I can think up an interesting concept.


Hello GM Besmara,

After a long hiatus from PBP, life has calmed down and I am eager to get back into posting. I would like to participate, if you will have me. Please role up a stat set for me and I will get to work on either a Swashbuckler or Cleric of Besmara for submission.


I have several interesting concepts that will work well for this campaign. If still accepting, I will put in an application.


I have an interesting idea for a human cleric of Asmodeus. With halloween today, not sure I will get to a full submission, but will do my best. First some rolls. Wisdom is my focus and Dexterity is my foible.
Roll set 1
Strength: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (3) + 7 = 10
Constitution: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (5) + 7 = 12
Intelligence: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (1) + 7 = 8
Charisma: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (3) + 7 = 10
Roll 2
Strength: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (4) + 7 = 11
Constitution: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (3) + 7 = 10
Wisdom: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (3) + 7 = 10
Charisma: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (3) + 7 = 10


It seems that the WotR campaign that I was playing in has died out. I would be interested in participating, if you would have me. I will get a character posted as soon as possible.


I have a cleric concept that I would like to submit, but first I want to run a Cleric Archetype by you. It is from Fire Mountain Games and the details can be found below.

Unholy Barrister


I have an idea for a human cleric of Abadar I will put together and present as soon as possible.


I am very interested and will get a profile put together as soon as I can. I am thinking either human or half-orc Paladin (Oath against Fiends/ possibly Sword of Valor) with either "Exposed to Awfulness" or "Stolen Fury".


I have a concept for a half-Orc Ranger or Barbarian with the Stolen Fury Trait and going the Champion Mythic Path that would be fun to play, let me put a profile together and see if you like it.


Though not very wise, Mogmurch was still the smartest goblin that he knew. So, fear adding to his thought process, Mogmurch reached a moment of clarity as he tried to gauge Poog's condition from his place on the crow's nest.

Heal: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (9) + 3 = 12

I can't find where it says what action is needed to check the status of an unconscious creature, so I am assuming it is a standard action.

If he determined that Poog is stable, he will attempt to head over to Reta using the ropes to go from mast to mast.

Acrobatics: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (8) + 4 = 12

If he can't determine if Poog is stable from the crow's nest, he will stealthy attempt to climb down to Poog to administer a CLW potion.

Climb: 1d20 - 1 ⇒ (20) - 1 = 19
Stealth: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (1) + 12 = 13


I am really interested in participating in this game and have been wanting to try the Anti-Paladin for some time now. I will try to get a character put together as soon as possible.


I have an idea for a Cavalier of House Lebeda that I think would be interesting to play. Although I too would like a few more specifics, including determining starting gold and any house rules or restrictions that you will be using.


I am interested in playing. However, it doesn't look like I am able to look at the character sheets, even after I sign in to Dropbox.
