Welcome to the Jungle, home brew pathfinder Campaign


Recruitment

1 to 50 of 222 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | next > last >>

It's been a hundred years since the world changed. The wilds have overtaken almost everything. The few pockets of civilization that exist are ruled by whoever holds the power. Arcane magic, has depleted; existing only in a few small pockets across the world. Nethys no longer answers prayers.

You all have come to or live in the newly established port city Greywater Hollow, located in what used to be Varisia. The city itself is a sanctuary of sorts for all, The lands having become far more dangerous and wild. An odd guard consisting of Harpies and Goblins protects the city from the lands and sky's while Lizardfolk protect the seas from the Halfling pirates the Phantom raiders].

It may seem odd, but in the face of new danger some races have become closer while others have drifted.

The Adventure will start in this new city Greywater Hollow, whether you wish to adventure to uncover why the world has changed or just seek to protect it is up to you.

Character Creation rules :

Start at Level 1

Stat Rolls 2d6+6

Hp Max at first level, after that we will roll

Gold Average for starting class or roll in thread

Alignment any non evil alignment

Traits Take 2, no drawbacks, make sure they fit your character.

Core, Uncommon and Featured races allowed. Pretty much any Paizo race under 20 rp is allowed. So a few minor things to add Racism has changed a bit: people blame Elves as well for the worlds current state...

All Paizo classes allowed, with certain restrictions. All summoners use The unchained version. Third party classes: the Time thief and dreamscarred presses Soulknife are allowed as i've reviewed them. 3rd party Oracle curses Allowed.

I will only be accepting 1 Arcane caster.

Arcane magic is very weak due to the world's current state and with that All Spells take a full round to cast, unless i say otherwise as it takes more time to gather the energy to cast.

None of this Includes Alchemists.

Clerics of Nethys will not receive spells or domain powers immediately....

Keep in mind you will not be able to buy Magic weaponry or armor anymore. due to the worlds state. However crafting is allowed.
Alchemists count for the purpose of fulfilling crating requirements.

We will be using the Background Skills system, Automatic bonus progression and Fighters have access to the stamina system

Backstory and Fluff

A character's backstory is my favorite part of pathfinder, as such i am looking a character with a goal beyond selfish monetary gain now if your character steals for others, like a robin hood esq idea that's okay

I have no problem with people connecting backstories if you want.

Ten minute background format Not Required But it could help both you and i understand your character better.

A few homebrew rules:

Spells such as Snowball, Mudball, touch spells, ect that are normally under the Conjuration school are now under Evocation.

the Cure spells that normally count as conjuration now count under the Necromancy school. Manipulating the forces of life energy and yada yada .

Spells like Summon monster, nature ally, ect in order to take the higher level versions you must have the previous versions first.

That should be everything, ask questions if needed


Can we make a race that 20RP or less?


im going to say no, making races is too easy to break. i said the under 20 race points to protect against paizo races that are above the limit


No problem. Hence i asked =^^=
Will have a look.
Can we submit 2 characters?


No problem

1 per submission per person

Olaf actually reminded me of this with his rolling but i'll also allow a 15 point buy as a backup.

Combat with me is still new and honestly easy and still under development.


2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 1) + 6 = 13
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (1, 5) + 6 = 12
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 1) + 6 = 9
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (1, 2) + 6 = 9
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (1, 2) + 6 = 9
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 5) + 6 = 16

That hurts quite a bit.


Okay. Then my idea :
Ghoran warden ranger. It sees itself as a protector of the forest

Gold: 5d6 ⇒ (6, 2, 2, 1, 2) = 13 x10

2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 4) + 6 = 12
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 6) + 6 = 17
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (1, 2) + 6 = 9
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 2) + 6 = 12
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 5) + 6 = 13
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 2) + 6 = 12


stat: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 4) + 6 = 13
stat: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 5) + 6 = 16
stat: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 5) + 6 = 13
stat: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (1, 4) + 6 = 11
stat: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 2) + 6 = 14
stat: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 5) + 6 = 17

Pretty good rolls, one question can I rearrange these stats, for instance if I wanted that 17 as my STR instead of CHA could I move it


So here is just a build, still thinking of a name

Seth i'm going to have to ask you to write up your own character sheet not using it from the bestiary. it could come out differently. if it is then i apologize, just making sure

Ulthraed: go ahead, i didn't say roll in order. those stats are to be distributed as you see fit.


I used Herolab :)

Will edit in the background skills and ABP

Forgot those


2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 2) + 6 = 11
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 3) + 6 = 15
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 2) + 6 = 13

2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 5) + 6 = 15


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Here you go, with a name, as i understand there will be no magical item loot? Are we going with that ABP list or the normal one?

i don't understand what your talking about Seth, i said you can't buy magical items. Magic loot will be a thing eventually, though you will never be able to buy magic anything.

anything non magical is available for purchase though

The ABP has 2 seperate lists. one for no magic items/loot (so it starts at 2 "levels" higher, and the normal 1 that starts at level 1)

Use the normal list as magic loot will be a thing, the intent is to make things tougher as magic is rarer


Gotcha

10min Background:

The Ten-Minute Background

Step 1: write five things about your character’s concept and background, five things that you think are the most essential parts of your character. You don’t have to stop at five, if you like…this is just a minimum.

1. It is a sentient plant that has evolved and devolped due to the current nature and state of the planet
2. It sees itself as a protector of the new world and its state
3. It is will to learn and to try to understand the races that are not of the Green
4. The Green is it’s home, the Green gives it live and nourishment

Step 2: List two goals for the character that you, as a player, think would be cool to see accomplished in-game.

1. Character: It want’s to be one with the Green, becomes the Green’s avatar
2. Player: Want to see how far as a Horizon Walker I can go

Step 3: List two secrets about your character. One is a secret the character knows, one is a secret that involves him but that he is not actually aware of yet.

Want to talk to you about the Green etc, will PM you

Step 4: Describe three people that are tied to the character though blood, romance or honor. Two of them are friendly to the character, one is hostile.

1. The town’s botanist. She is a good friend and they talk a lot about the Green and other nature related things
2. A Druid named Malik’t, he showed him to the town. He was the first human he ever met
3. An alchemist, Zartal, he plans to defoliate the part of the Green where it was born!

Step 5: Describe three memories that your character has. They don't have to be elaborate, but they should provide some context and flavor.

This will depend on what the GM decides


Somewhere maybe in the interest thread you said guns where less rare than magic. I was thinking about going with a gunslinger, possibly with the musketman archetype.would that be OK.


that's a okay use the rules for Emerging firearms


You could have given a "warning"/link...

2d6+6 would average to 18 PB, and 15 PB with a lack of magic stuff at the start could be deadly for some.


thanks for posting the link, i knew i forgot something

also i understand the it will be difficult but trust me when i say it'll be fine my combat's are usually pretty easy.

i added most of these penalties and difficulties to compensate.

the 15 point buy is staying, the lack of magic items isn't getting explained any better or more. point being no matter what is argued you will not be able to buy magic.


I kinda wanna know too. Why can't divine and psychic casters make magic items?

Gods of Magic:
Deities, Magic Domain: Asmodues, Urgathoa, Alseta, Sivanah, Barbatos, Aesdurath, Slandrais, Vorasha, Isis, Thoth, Nalinivati, Abraxas, Orcus, Ng, Shyka, Yuelral, Chucaro, Irez, Korada, Kroina, Skrymir, Lorthact, Circiatto, Sezelrian, Nyarlathotep (Black Pharaoh), Nyarlathotep (Faceless Sphinx), Nyarlathotep (Haunter of the Dark), Shiggarreb

Deities, Magic portfolio: Isis, Thoth, Qi Zhong, Abraxas, Yuelral, Soralyon, Sezelrian, Nyarlathotep (Black Pharaoh), Nyarlathotep (Faceless Sphinx), Nyarlathotep (Haunter of the Dark), Shiggarreb

That's a lot of deities that could've picked up the slack and taken over for Nethys or, barring that, at least kept magic item creation a thing.


To clarify divine and psychic casters can make magic items. i did in fact state in the original post that pc's could invest in the magic item creation.

Please note i said the following "Keep in mind you will not be able to buy Magic weaponry or armor anymore. due to the worlds state. However crafting is allowed.
Alchemists count for the purpose of fulfilling crating requirements."

The reason magic weapons and armor are rarer is because Civilization has devolved enough to where whole nations have fallen and entire races have changes ways of life. Other gods of magics haven't been able to pick up the slack, for what reason i cannot say....

The ways of magic item crafting have in essence been forgotten, only select clans and groups know how to craft them. The materials to craft are harder to get, and the process takes much longer. which is why it takes longer to bind the magic to something.

Not going to deep into this but something is wrong with the very planes themselves, even the connection with the gods feels as if it's weakening.


Rolling for the wealth of my gunslinger

Wealth: 5d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 4, 3, 1) = 15x10=150, should have taken the average, oh well.

Also do I need to buy my initial ammunition and black powder or can i create it in the beginning, it is really expensive unless I make it.


To clarify, do all spells take one round(or longer if normal) or just arcane?


@Azten Only Arcane spells take longer

@Uthraed you can craft it just make sure you have invested in the appropriate crafting skill


From what I read with the gunsmithing feat I do not need to have a crafting skill such as crafting (gunsmithing) although I plan to take crafting (alchemy)

http://www.d20pfsrd.com/feats/general-feats/gunsmithing I don't know this link isn't working for me

also here is the alias I plan on using, haven't done the fluff yet and im still finishing the crunch but I am getting there I think ill use the same outline as Seth


Gunsmithing Feat. That is correct.


Thanks for the link, I'm a mess.


I've decided the deadline will be roughly a week or so.

ending around midnight on the 11th. all eastern standard time


Sounds interesting, I have no idea what I'll submit yet.
2d6+6: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 2) + 6 = 13
2d6+6: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 1) + 6 = 12
2d6+6: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 5) + 6 = 16
2d6+6: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 4) + 6 = 14
2d6+6: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 3) + 6 = 14
2d6+6: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (1, 5) + 6 = 12

I can work with those.


Lets see what I get.

2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 4) + 6 = 14
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 4) + 6 = 15
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 4) + 6 = 13
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 5) + 6 = 16
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (1, 1) + 6 = 8
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 1) + 6 = 12

8, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16

Let's go with an Elven Wood Kineticist just to make people mad. :p


Dot. Thinking a druid or something along those lines.

stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (1, 4) + 6 = 11
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 1) + 6 = 9
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 6) + 6 = 18
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 6) + 6 = 15
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 3) + 6 = 11
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 5) + 6 = 17

Sovereign Court

dot. Let's see what happens :)

2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 6) + 6 = 18
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 2) + 6 = 14
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (1, 4) + 6 = 11
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 2) + 6 = 11
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (1, 1) + 6 = 8
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 5) + 6 = 16


This sounds interesting let me throw some dice across the room.

2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 4) + 6 = 15
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 3) + 6 = 12
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 1) + 6 = 10
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 6) + 6 = 14
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 1) + 6 = 11
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 5) + 6 = 14

Not super impressive but I can work with it.

I'm thinking of a ratfolk or strix. Possibly ranger or unchained rogue.


Everything looks good so far, can't wait till i start seeing some submissions.


Eslax has been submitted :)

Dark Archive

Dot, Heya there... let me just get some rolls on first...

stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 2) + 6 = 10
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 4) + 6 = 16
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 6) + 6 = 16
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 6) + 6 = 15
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 3) + 6 = 15
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 2) + 6 = 14

Grand Lodge

Vanara monk ;)

will start on stats... NOW!

actually... nevermind, i think i'm dealing with too many campagns as it is... so I'll drop out... Have Fun!


Thinking Menhir Savant druid. He is a druid that always wanted to see nature and civilization grow together. The current state of the world troubles him more than most druids. He spends much of his time communicating, or attempting to communicate with, the natural energy of the world. I'm considering having him been around for most of the the 100 b years that have passed. That, or be part of a family that has passed down tales and the like from before then. He would focus on his spellcastering.

Silver Crusade

Lets see how badly I do on the rolls :-)

stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 3) + 6 = 11
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 6) + 6 = 15
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 1) + 6 = 10
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 2) + 6 = 12
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 4) + 6 = 16
stats: 2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 4) + 6 = 16

pretty sweet set of stats.

No idea yet what I'll build.

So i've been throwing around the idea of closing the recruitment a day or two early and using those days as a sort of a small rping thing. What do we think?


I'm fine with ending a couple of days early for RP. I have off on Friday the 8th and will have my background done by that afternoon.

I have the broad outline of a background done and could use some direction. I have decided to submit a Soulknife (probably human, maybe Aasimar). Do Psionic users have to be trained by a mentor or can a major stress event cause their powers to manifest? Also are the Soulknife archetypes available?


What day was it going to end?


Midnight on the 11th here is the a link to the Post


i've always been a believer that either mentor or major strees or big event could cause powers. As for archetypes with it any of the dream scarred press archetypes are legal for soul knife.


I believe so far i have submissions from Seth86 and Theorcnextdoor

there is interest from a bunch of other people but i haven't seen much yet. hows it looking guys?

2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 4) + 6 = 13
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 6) + 6 = 15
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 3) + 6 = 14
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 5) + 6 = 13
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 2) + 6 = 13
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 1) + 6 = 12

Hmm, not too shabby. Maybe I'll go for an unchained monk...


Still trying to think of a background. And how to spend gold.
