Adventure Time - Pathfinder Style

The Exchange

Stop me if this has been done before. Has anyone applied the Pathfinder RPG to Adventure Time and tried to make characters based on Finn, Jake, Ice King, Princess Bubblegum, Marceline, etc? I'm kicking around an idea to get some friends together and make these characters for the Pathfinder Society campaign.

Most would be pretty easy, but Jake has me stumped. I see Finn as a paladin, Ice King as an air school wizard* (with a penguin familiar), Bubblegum as an alchemist and Marceline as a bard. What are your ideas?

*I'd make him a sorcerer but for his terrible charisma!

Summoner without the Summoner itself, just the Eidolon? Spends all his spell slots on Evolution Surges to extend his reach, change size, etc.?


He could be a synthesist with loads of evolution surge.

The Exchange

The times when Finn wears the "Jake-Suit" seems totally where the whole synthesist concept came from. It's a quandary. The Summoner class just doesn't fit with Finn, who is definitely the "hit it with a sword 'til it's dead" type. However, there's just no other way to create a talking, shape-shifting yellow-skinned bipedal dog without going to an eidolon.
Orthos has the right idea, but you'd need to create a house rule to enable a summonerless eidolon.

I don't even know where to start with Lumpy Space Princess. She'd make an awful character. Fun to roleplay if you like to annoy your friends, though.

Does anyone else have a favorite character who they have imagined as a Pathfinder character?

LSP is probably just a funky race with Aristocrat levels.

Same with Lemongrab. ALTHOUGH, I could also see Bard [Sound Striker] as legit.

The Lich, despite his name, is probably closer to being something like a Venedaemon with a unique Possession ability and levels in some casting class, probably sorcerer. (He, unlike Ice King, does have Charisma - he just puts it all in Intimidate and Bluff*.)

Peppermint Butler is impossible to stat for reasons we are not allowed to discuss.

See the episode where he was pretending to be Billy.


Princess Bubblegum screams alchemist.

Shadow Lodge

use gestalt

Princess bubblegum is a gestalt alchemist/either artificer or wizard
Fin is a Paladin/summoner, and has convinced the DM to allow him to apply leadership levels to his elodion, to give it/him bard levels
Marceline is a bard/something with full BaB, perhaps ranger, and the dread vampire template
Ice king is a wind school wizard/winter witch he has permanced an ice body or elemental body (ice) with a pinguin witch familiar and a crown bonded item

The Exchange

How about Abracadaniel? LOL, I just laugh thinking about that guy.

Scarab Sages

Ice king I'd make as a winter witch with the winter witch prc.

Shadow Lodge

uh Abracadaniel? hmm Fey Sorcerer/illusionist wizard?

Shadow Lodge

Yeah he's a low-level illusionist.

I'd say Barbarian. When she Rages she goes into her batlike form.

Others:

Flame Princess - Elemental (Fire) Sorcerer, perhaps with some Eldritch Knight (or Gestalt Sorcerer|Fighter?). From the adventuring in the dungeon episode we can see she can handle herself in melee combat, and we've seen her wearing heavy armor.

The Skald then? Bard stuff and ragy beast aspects.

I could see it if you wanted to single-class her, yeah. Lord Foul was specifically requesting Gestalt combinations.

Sorry, my brain defaults to single class in general and when I am tired.

The thing I like about the air school is he'll have fly at will when he hits 10th level. Witches can only fly for minutes/level. Although he's called the Ice King he frequently uses lightning, another class feature of the air school. On top of that, you could have the his crown as the aforementioned bonded item. Both classes could have a penguin familiar, I believe.

True, but I always though he was a slyph as a race, and they can fly at will with wings of air. But a gestalt Air Wizard/Winter Witch would work well.

Shadow Lodge

I've found gestalt works really well for making concepts that would be more difficult single classed

that could deffinitly work,

If I were the one playing her I'd stat her as a cross blooded battle sorcerer (fire/draconic, battle sorcerer being a 3.5 alternate class thing) or flame oracle on one side with skald on the other
But a sorcerer (or flame oracle)/fighter would work, it'd work quite well to fit with the character,
