Brand brings about a dozen holy symbols, ranging from rovagug, calistria, Iomedae and others that he follows to one degree or another. That way, he automatically has brethren at the table on religious grounds.

I bring a handgun. Did anyone one else? No?

Empty your pockets then... nice and calm like. If the wizard opens his mouth or twitches his finger I will shoot him.

Oh? These are the Society Members I am supposed to be working with?

Please excuse me, we all have our misunderstandings from time to time.

I'd love to see somebody actually dying to a readied gunshot. I mean, that's maybe 1d8+1 at first level. Maybe a very squishy wizard.

My readied gunshot is 2d12+30. Granted, that's at 9th level.

At 1st-level, a readied gunshot would have been 1d12+6

Neither are particularly deadly for their respective levels, but neither are greataxes.

I am a half-orc hospitaller paladin of Sarenrae who pushes the boundaries of lawful good. Not because i don't want to, i really do want to be a good person. i just have a troubled past that has a hard time staying in the past

Yeah, that's not going to do it.

How? PBS and Deadly Aim(I left this out of my example damage because most won't have it by level 1) take it to dx+3, but what's the rest? Mysterious Stranger?

Silver Crusade

It's just Point-Blank Shot and Mysterious Stranger. When I took Deadly Aim it went up to 1d12+8, but by then I had switched to mostly using pistols.

Silver Crusade 5/5

Of course, the Mysterious Stranger deed is a swift action, which precludes it's use with a readied action.

You can still perform swift actions before you ready an action. :)

Move: Draw the gun.
Swift: spend a grit point.
Free: say, "The thing you gotta ask yourself..."
Standard: ready an attack if the punk so much as twitches.

Still doesn't work.

The ready action lets you prepare to take an action later, after your turn is over but before your next one has begun.

At 1st level, as a swift action, the mysterious stranger can spend 1 grit point to gain a bonus on all firearm damage rolls equal to her Charisma modifier (minimum 1) with all firearm attacks she makes until the end of her turn.

Ok.

Getting back on track...

I bring a chainsaw, and my appetite, for Justice!

Ok, ok, you got me. Not justice. But I do have a healthy appetite, and anything that tries to hurt my party winds up on the menu. Might I recommend the div? Or perhaps the Naga? The bulette is particularly good this time of year, well, it's good anytime of the year. Have I ever tried people? Darling, don't ask questions you don't want to know the answers to!

It was off a crit, so insanity is to be expected

+20 static mod to damage,

+2 good hope/bard song
+4 weapon
+8 dex
+6 deadly aim

or something thereabouts.

Sadly, there were no badges left to put on my Kapenia afterwards.

Along with the 22 others I already have

No, literally my highest level Pathfinder Society character is a gunslinger. I don't think they're bad, I happen to love the class, and technology based characters specifically.

I just don't find it fun when all the 'challenges' are instantly shredded. No matter what class.

Meh.

That, I agree with. One-round combats are pretty boring.

One round combats are so 4715. Today, we use our enemies to fight our enemies, that way we get a two-fer, and who doesn't love a two-fer. And, for the next twenty-four hours, I will be holding a special on twofers. Undead Mitch, since we are in Absalom and not Kaer Maga, I am not sure it is legal to get you "companionship"... Are you willing to take a little trip down to Geb?

I like to think I always make the table better. And more fun. I also know to describe myself as an "entrepreneur" at certain tables that need a G rating instead of PG-13. And who doesn't love a pretty bird like Sappho?

Left for Geb

Scenario 7-XXX ; Tier 7-11

Pathfinders, [REDACTED] is back from the grave and needs some companionship. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to escort our special envoy "Luscious" Lucius Vizinni to Mechitar, assist him in securing a suitable "representative" from Geb and see them both safely back to Absalom. Paladins and Pharasmins need not apply.

What do you think of my daring new scenario? I think it's got real promise! It's the first of a brand new tier of exclusives, the double secret exclusive! It can only be run on the second Tuesday of each month by a GM with a prime number of letters in their full name, and only under a full moon!

Evigail really surprised me a few times. My first impression was that his build was really underpowered, but after a few shots from that blast, it's actually very funny and effective.

And a local character once asked me to blast him, knowing the 5 ft. move gave him an open charge lane.

thread Necro - been about a year for this one...

But again, the boards seem to be really negative lately. Everyone being real negative and sometimes it even seems they are being a bit hateful. Perhaps it's just me...

So, I just wanted to float a "nice thread" to the top of the boards. This one has lots of nice things going for it. It's fun to read... there's some really great things said here - esp. post from redward (#51)....IMHO

SO to paraphrase the title of this, "How does your character make the game more fun for the other people at the table with you?"

Thanks!

Me? I let my friends see thru smoke/fog/etc. so we can see the badguys when they can't see us...


I really enjoy the look on the rogue's face when I set up a really great combo for him. He gets to roll all these dice, and thinks it was all his doing.

Liberty's Edge 4/5

My recently-retired bardbarian/DDI, Conan O'Brien, brought a very large store of bad, bad PF/D&D themed jokes. Also his keen greatsword (named 'Wit'), and his flaming rubber chicken.

4/5

Depends on the character :
Samuel Wingfoot brings a pteranodon, because a halfling riding a pterasaur makes everything more fun.
Kiroshka brings a whole lot of cheerful flirtaciousness, as well as a triceratops.
Kharamonn brings a dwarven dorn dergar and a lot of home brewed beer.
Quinray Starstriker brings a chainsaw. Everybody loves a chainsaw!

"Well, New Friends, I make things fun for other people by making silly statements, screaming in an exaggerated manner at bad guys, and by making the best cornbread in Absalom! Oh and it's nice to see the look on people's faces when they see Stuffing, my favoritest familiar friend."

Corona pauses for a moment and thinks.

"Oh...and I suppose I'm useful enough in a fight. Sometimes my arms and legs don't want to work very well and it's always at the worst times but I can mend wounds and alter the flow of time to help my New Friends and hinder our enemies," she adds. "I guess that's a pretty big deal too."


"Well," Gwyn of Nybor begins. "I bring a heart full of Hope and the desire to write wrongs and triumph over evil."

He elaborates, "I'm not terribly smart, I accept that. At the temple they said that I was either incredibly foolish or incredibly brave. I'm not sure which, but I do admit that I'm not the sharpest sword in the stone."

"I'm not very graceful, I do okay though, and I'm only a slight bit hardier than your average guy," he says, displaying humility. "I do, however have my merits. The girls at the temple used to say that I had, and I quote, muscles that must have been sculpted from tempered adamantine and I do have rather flowing golden locks."

"I have a rather impressive sounding name," he adds. "I am Gwyn of Nybor, Warrior of Justice, loyal member of the Grand Lodge, friend of the Tribes, Initiate of the Runes, and Paladin of Iomedae."

"In battle I bring my longsword to bear with two hands, prepared to smite those who would stand against justice," the Paladin continues. "I also will be able to heal with a touch, and raise the fallen from the dead. I take blows so that my friends and companions do not need to. Huzzah!"

Honestly, I create and play the characters that I want to play. Whether it enhances the fun of other players is a remote secondary at best. I don't actively try to detract from other players' fun, but I don't have total control over that either.


I tend to play the character that comes prepared to the PFS table. When the GM throws a Swarm or Ooze at us, I'm the one who packed lamp oil and alchemist fire. I'm the one who has Blunt, Piercing, and Slashing weapons, he one who has a Wand of Air Bubble, or whatever.

I have a build or 2 that gives Attacks of Opportunity to others, but I've been disappointed at how few I have actually given out.

I have been told by 1 GM that I tend to slow down the game, but I'm also the one who sniffs his traps and prevents TPKs. The same GM also told me that my Wizard (that same character that was keeping everybody from dying) was the best villain he ever had.
