New to Pathfinder and Play-By-Post / online play


Hi there folks. I'm a long time RPGer, started playing when I was ten with basic dungeons and dragons (red box) and I'm just now trying to get into Pathfinder. I've been looking over the recruitment threads and I've been having a hard time getting involved in any of the games/finding some thing I want to play so I thought I'd just put this out there. I'm looking to get into a PbP game/online game of Pathfinder, preferably starting low level as I'm looking for a chance to build a character from the ground up and really get involved. If you're starting up a game and looking for players just let me know. Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this over. Cheers all.

I'll be happy to play a game with you!

Cool, what kind of game are you setting up?

Check out my Wrath of Baphomet thread. Try to coordinate with the other players to create an intertwining backstory once I've picked players. BTW; Are you interested in gaining a mythic tier-or 10? >:3

I'll check it out and see what's what. As far as mythic goes, I don't have the book so I have no idea about how those rules work at all, however if you're wanting to run your game with them I have no complaints.

All Drus knew of life was pain. His earliest memories only go back as far as scrabbling for survival in the brutal slums where his days were filled with desperately seeking the bare minimum to get by while avoiding the attentions of the more powerful denizens. On the good days, he made it through without incident with just enough in his belly to keep going; on the bad he was bullied, any scraps he had were taken and more often than not he was brutally beaten. For most, this harsh life was short, however Drus possessed a will that refused to lay down and die. He became hard and cruel and strong. His orc blood made him grow big and mean and he made a name for himself as a tough as nails brawler. He was able to rise above the rest of the gutter trash, becoming an enforcer for local gangs and loan sharks, taking a great deal of pleasure in inflicting some of the pain he had been forced to endure back upon the dregs and other scum.
While not clever by any means Drus does possess a certain low cunning and is rather self aware, knowing his natural position is not as a big boss, however he doesn't deal with authority well, prefering to be a hired gun and he is aware the price his skills can bring. For a half-orc Drus has a rugged handsomeness, however this is marred by his constanty radiating an aura of menace, his gaze and stance making it clear to all the brutal force he can bring to bear and leaving no mystery as to how readily he is willing to use it which is off putting and makes him hard to deal with, crippling him in most social interactions. This combines with an inherent paranoia and mistrust of others along with a strong mercenary streak constantly looking out for his own interests first that all together ensures he is always on the fringes.
The one surprising trait Drus has, one that he tries to hide at all costs as it is definitely a weakness that can be exploited, is that he has a soft spot for the bullied, those truely weaker and unabe to defend themselves. This may seem like hypocrasy at first considering his occupations, however he always looks on the victims of his intimidation or leg-breaking as having brought about their own trouble as if they didn't gamble, borrow what they can't pay or try to horn in on territory they aren't strong enough to hold they wouldn't become targets. Those he percieves as taking advantage of true victims will suddenly find themselves facing a rage unlike any they have seen, usually not for very long. This was ultimately what lead to his taking to the road. After witnessing a local pimp breaking the arm of on of his whores, Drus pounded his head into a wall until it was just a bloody smear. While the girl was greatful, the gang boss to whom the pimp had been paying protection money to was not and felt an example needed to be made of Drus, preferably a lengthy, graphic example. So with no real ties and a great big world out there Drus fled without looking back, seeking whatever glory and wealth he can grab with both of his bloody fists.
