Hi everyone!

Our role playing group has started an 'actual play' podcast for our new Pathfinder campaign.

If you'd like to, we'd love for you to listen to our podcast, and provide any comments or feedback. We play once a week and are aiming to post a new session on our website every Tuesday. Our last campaign took about a year to complete and we usually just jump right into another adventure after one ends. If you're not interested that's okay, of course. I appreciate you reading this anyway and hope you have a wonderful day. :) However, if you are interested you can find a link to our website and Facebook page below (we literally just made the website, so it's still getting put together a bit, but the first two podcasts are up! You can also find us on iTunes).

My group went with "Crusaders of the Deathly Hallows". They based their characters on Indiana Jones and Harry Potter, if you couldn't guess.

One thing my group does that I enjoy quite a bit is google docs between sessions of character conversations or different things like that. I could always link the event that I was discussing as it was written out after the game in one of the docs. Not sure if anyone cares to read it. I think me and the player came to a good understanding and way to handle it. But if anyone is interested let me know and I will link to it. or put it in a spoiler not sure what is best on these.

The other thing you might want to look into is the reputation section in the Ultimate Campaign book if you get a chance to buy it. It's got a scale and tables of what different kinds of deeds do to player alignments. Then you look it up, mark it down on your sheet for the player and tell them when they have moved or are getting ready to move into a new alignment based on their actions in the game.

This is a great idea. Thank you.

Tell the players that if you find an action to be evil, you will mark it down.

After a number of these actions have occurred, you will impose an alignment shift.

That is how it should be handled, and with players aware, there will be no surprises.

That is a great idea. Thank you for your advice.

I spoke to the player last night and let them know that I felt they were on the line of going evil. They told me they thought their character may end up CE and understood. For now they are remaining CN. I am pretty sure we came to an understanding.

Thanks again for your advice and help everyone.

CN barely. IMO, CN should be a moral gray area, not a little bit of both good and bad.

Wouldn't acting on anger be more Chaotic Evil though. I understand that Chaotic Neutral is do whatever type of thing. But feeding the hate and anger inside you?

I guess I can see it from both sides a bit. Perhaps they are right on the line of both CN and CE.

I don't want to force someone to change their alignment but I can see this progressing worse. I really wanted to give them a heads up that this is the direction their player was going. I know it will make some other party members uncomfortable if it gets worse. They disagree that their actions are leading to that sort of thing.

They told me that it was a ritual type of thing to Pharasma ripping the hands off and wiping blood on their face.

Thank you for all your responses. I don't want to argue with them about this. I like the group and I don't want it to fall apart. How would you go about dealing with something like this?

From what I understand a few of the other members of the group are not sure how to take it.


Pathfinder Maps Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Mike- It is both, the first was probably a bit of emotion and a hate of witches. The second was to show power and leave a sign as in don't mess with me type of thing.


Pathfinder Maps Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Cheapy, What do you mean?

Well, they found out that their brother had a half sister in game. When they first met they went up and screamed in her face and threatened to slap her unless she gave them information. The NPC had shown no threatening qualities and was the NPC they were sent to rescue. She was being held by a dragon.

Hello,

I have a player in my group is started out as Chaotic Neutral. However, their actions in game look to me as more Chaotic Evil. I mentioned this to them and we got into a bit of an argument over it. I was wondering if I could get some input from the pathfinder community. Perhaps I am just being single minded.

1. The character often is driven by anger in their actions. They met a villain from their past. After slaying the villain they jumped on their chest and started stabbing the dead body repeatedly.

2. After killing the end book boss they went up and ripped the hands off the dead witch and rubbed the blood on their face and kept the hands. To use to make a magic item later.

3. Then they took the body to a location that could be seen and used a ice spear to impale the body as a warning to other witches. That they shouldn't do bad things.

The rest of the party stood and watched not sure what to do as the character ripped the hands off.

When I talked to them about it they told me that it was a lawful ritual to rip the hands off and do the blood. As well as stabbing the other witch multiple times after they were already dead. That it was just an Eye for and Eye and being angry does not make you evil.

I agree that being angry does not, but doesn't acting on said anger?

Thank you for your help.

Yeah I agree with Tangent. After the first three books there really is not a place you could fit an NPC like that in. I think the captive bard is the best bet. I did the same with a PC and his sister he did not know he had. It worked out really well. Just changed the names, I even toyed with having her up singing for the dragon when the party arrived but that did not happen.

You could put her in as a servant to a winter wolf in book 2. There is a part where one is trying to flee and you could put her there and he could save her. I honestly think book 2 is the best place. There are a lot of nice role playing encounters. at least in my groups experience. They went through the middle part of book 2 with hardly a combat.

Another option you could have Ringeirr with the love and he is either going to smuggle her in or smuggle her out of the Whitethrone. (I am assuming the love is female)

I hope these give you some ideas.

My group took the PC to the barber shop and had the dwarf lady (Can't remember her name and don't have my book) perform surgery to cut of his finger. There are not rules for this sort of thing I do not think. It was pretty fun and all the players enjoyed the suspense of him getting his finger cut off.

Would the effects of Celestial Totem, Lesser work if the barbarian currently has a life oracles life link?

So if the oracle is 10th level and puts life link on the Barbarian would he heal for 15? Oracle taking 5 and Barbarian healing 15.

I read the Celestial Totem, Lesser power and I can see how it would work but it says that it does not work on fast healing and isn't life link pretty much the same thing?

For sure interested.
