So what would your characters have as a resolution for the New Year?
(Serious or humorous replies welcomed)

For example - Brogain the cleric resolves not to convert every one of his spells for spontaneous curing anymore.

Grand Lodge

Vish the magus resolves to buy a belt of Con to offset his con of 12


Threnody the bard resolves to contribute more to either melee or ranged combat, likely via Fencing Grace for the former (but the agile weapon property isn't ruled out) and with her shortbow for the latter.

I'm going to be on my best behaviour. I swear. I won't abandon a single party to a TPK this year.


Letho the hexcrafter magus will endeavor to actually be a melee striker instead of evil eye-ing literally everything that moves

Kiani, Fem Undine Watersinger Bard: to get a tattoo.

She has just started the second book of S&S and she has all she wants: her own ship, a crew of close friends and a neverending party. She just needs a good tattoo.


To play my PFS characters instead of musing endlessly in the Recruitment threads.


I'm going to find her, my Isabella, and triumph over this wretched madness that's plaguing me. //Knight without a name exploring the strange aeons.

Tammy has plans, big, big plans!


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Not kill any of my own party members this year.

Sovereign Court

To parry all of the big creatures throughout Eyes of the Ten. I've already done it to a charging triceratops, a crag linnorm, a cloud giant, several rocs, a gelatinous cube, and two giant squids, how hard can it be, really, even if I am Small?

SMASH MORE STUFF. ALWAYS.

ALSO FINISH MASTER THESIS IN STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING. POSSIBLY ALSO WITH SMASH.


No more romantic and professional entanglements with unstable aristocrats, no matter how esoteric the lore they have on offer...


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Me resolve to listen to not-mes boring talky stuff, even when Me not understand why people more important than bomb-making. Or fire. Or research into the essential properties of lead and gold.

Silver Crusade

To drink in as many taverns as Cayden will allow me to find.

Serante the Mageknight resolves to quit ignoring his AC. And he shall reclaim his stolen lordship from his uncle. But A before B, methinks.

Auferro the Arcanist will, this year, become the immortal demigod he's always wanted to be. At the moment, he's still struggling with the tagline, "I am a god for about a minute a day."

Malefactor Saisuira is sure to regain her memory. She hopes the guy who started this little adventure wasn't her boyfriend (that would be awkward).

Sgt. Ravek vows to be the most righteous Inquisitor possible, that she may gain audience with her Holy Light, Sarenrae, to try to lift the curse of undeath from herself. Damnable witches!

Sara Manda the alchemist resolves to become the greatest dragon she can
which will be kinda hard seeing as she's A) an alchemist and B) a tiefling of kobold heritage

No more dead friends this year. No more feeling ashamed for just being myself. And no more winter. I want to swim naked in a warm beach... with her, if I can choose ;->

Dark Archive

Relaxing and enjoying my well earned position. No big evil plotting this year. Well, just a bit to remain in good shape. And this year I'm learning to swim. This time for real, with no Magic Jar involved. I've got to make Mom and Grandma feel proud of me. And maybe bringing Blazelock back from the grave because it doesn't hurt having a red dragon by your side.


Ellara, devkarin (dark elf) ninja: My resolution this year is dealing with this lack of resolutions in my life and taking more decissions of my own. Or being patient and just keep living while awaiting for orders. I can't decide which of both but the first sounds more appealing.

This year I'm not going to take any unnecesary risks.
Any risk taken for the sake of knowledge doesn't count as unnecesary.
Any risk taken for my family's goodness doesn't count as unnecesary.
Any risk taken for protecting my loved ones doesn't count as unnecesary.
Any risk taken for a greater good doesn't count as unnecesary.
Any risk taken because it sounds appealing doesn't count as unnecesary.
This year's resolution is going to be easy to fulfill. I never take unnecesary risks, of course.


Two characters in different campaigns. Victor Moldovano, my ranger in my RotR game, wants to become awesome enough to replace his horse with a wolf.

Quentin Graves, my singing cowboy (gunslinger/bard) in Strange Aeons, has two. One, find out what happened. Two: survive. He has 8 con so that should be a challenge.

Don't worry, I'm an enchanter with 8 con and I survived a campaign full of golems. My secret? Meat shields. A lot of meat shields. And Magic Jar. Magic Jar might not be an option for you, so replace it with even more meat shields. You are a bard so you might be able to get meat shield from the most unexpected places.

I don't think is a good thing calling your allies "meat shields", you know. How distasteful of you.

Nothing wrong about calling them for what they are as long as they don't know.

But did your character use a pistol, with all inherent range restrictions that implies? (Huzzah 20 ft range increments). Super looking forward to crafting a +1 distance pistol once my arcane bond kicks in. (This is a mysterious stranger/arcane duelist build.)

To be honest, I'm still betting on what will kill me first: being driven insane; being eaten by an enemy; or rolling a sequence of 1s and having the misfire on my buffed weapon killing me. At least it makes life interesting.

10/10 naming choice. I see the kobold heritage is strong in this one.

PS: stay away from valinor

Anyway, Sven the hunter resolves to actually have a coherent story arc that doesn't get dropped from session to session.

Why aren't you marrying my aunt? You make such a nice couple!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Because reasons.


Master Diocles, alchemist, will take the Discovery to protect his mates from being caught in his bomb's splash zone.


Krog the barbarian resolves to stop drinking more alcohol than the mass of his body can account for.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Aracely Tiberiu resolves to follow the example of the Ascended deities and make herself a god. No big. She did, after all, just meet Iomedae in a dream. :)


First, getting to know my niece better.
Second, stopping everybody around me from talking about marriage.
Third, doing something romantic with Valinor, like killing a dragon, maybe two.
Fourth, making sure my mind stays mine for the whole year.
Fifth, find out what that "getting laid with his race's sworn enemy" stuff means.


Aurora the Mesmerist is going to see just how many encounters can really be resolved by dancing she feels like many. Also she wants one of those mithril bucklers, they're really just big bangles anyway.

Finick the Sorcerer swears he we only shock the really loud people... and the really quite ones.

Tiana the Oracle is gonna charge more for her future seeing services going forward, like way more.

Tina The Kneebreaker promises to stop Picking fights for no reason. Her halfling Body can't take it. She also will promise to pick ONE fighting style and stick with it. Even for a fighter, mastering 4 combat styles is pushing it.

Shoo The Monk promises to actually get some useful feats, instead of putting them all into Beer based ones for Flavor. Even as a drunken master monk, i don't think skill focus on Proffesion:brewer was really necessary.

Lockjaw the gunner promises to stop talking in a stereotypical Russian accent. Seriously, russia doesn't even exist in Golarion!

I on the other hand promise to keep fighting for Paizo to make Halflings and Gnomes and other small races better at melee. It's unfair i say!


Brian the cleric of Erastil decides to stop being a doormat and stop healing the blaspheming infidels he's travelling with.

Karin the cleric of Iomedae decides to stop having Scrooge McDuck as her role model and be more helpful... even when she won't get payed :(

Theodosius the cleric of Asmodeus has no need for new year resolutions, he has everything planned out already.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

The Grisgol, duergar wizard, resolves to study this strange surfacer disease called "charity" and determine if it can be cured.

Sunt the Shifter, human shapeshifter, resolves to try to do right by her sort-of-friends.

Jim Kender resolves to convert at least one of his halfling buddies to the Kender clan.

Xiddik, kobold ranger/bard, resolves to kill as many drow as possible. Because f!#% them.

Len, halfling sandman bard, resolves to get more involved in activism. Maybe she'll go to this protest in a few days... We're starting Hell's Rebels soon.

Liberty's Edge

Dick Kender resolves to be slain by a clown.

Romo Slender, human witch, resolves to teach Armillia "courage."

Astrden Limhaare, human cleric/soul warden, resolves to spend more time cultivating the cult of Olidammara.

Stop tearing so many holes in space so I can travel faster. I'm sure that eventually some outsider will get upset and come hunt me down.


Arnvarg Áskettil resolves to stick at his current alignment of Neutral instead of sliding further towards Lawful Evil. The fact he’s wearing a Pit Fiend skull as a horned helmet probably won’t help matters much.

Avernus, an orc Dirty Fighter, resolves not to bathe all year. He hopes that his stench will debilitate his enemies. He also enjoys the fact most people won’t tell him that he stinks since they’re afraid of him.

It will be the “Year of the Cock”, so Chief Sharky will likely resolve to eat every chicken in Sandpoint and the surrounding areas. This is in addition to his long term goal of killing all birds and replacing them with bats.

@Valinor - Are you from the lifeless plains of Valinor, where reigns a dark and frozen one? If so then know that the Silver Ships of Andilar will soon sail for your shores again! (beneath standards proud as fire). If not it is kind of a cool song anyhow...


My Gunsmoke Mystic resolves to AIM her gun better.

I am Valinor, proud ranger from the frozen and lifeless plains of South Ergoth, where a white and frozen dragon reigned supreme! A group of brave adventurers killed the dragon, freeing my land and depriving me of my well-deserved revenge. Now I seek to prove my worth against another dragons.

Once my people repopulate our land, your Silver Ships of Andilar will be received with all the honors and privileges they deserve. That I swear for the blood of countless dragons!

PS: Dragonlance stuff. It's hard to be left behind while your sister and your girlfriend get all the glory. I could have beaten alone that CR 29 dragon even though I was lvl 5!!

Have I said to hunt a dragon?

I can't help reading everything after each instance "to hunt a dragon" as the reason to hunt said dragon. And that hunt means more along the lines of "capture"

Don't worry about him. I know for sure that he has only killed ONE true dragon in his whole life.
He hunted me once. It was actually lots of fun. I'm awaiting for our next hunt. It will be exciting. I'm pretty bored this days. There's not too much going on in my swamp aside from plants and gnomes.


I'm trying to read it as a series of tasks—"I have to hunt a dragon in order to find a boyfriend for my sister in order to..."—but the repetition sadly ruins the effect. :P


Well, I am the "Dragonhunter", not the "Dragonslayer". I am not a monster, you know!

And the one I've killed was a red nasty dragon who was enslaving a lot of people and preparing a full-scale invasion. And I needed to show off in front of my girlfriend. Totally righteous, you see!

Kethrad resolves to stop existing due to a terminal case of First Character Syndrome. 2edgy5me.

My short-lived magus character Luciel resolves to abandon his party and find better people to travel with. Stupid barbarians and their goats.

My 2e paladin Sir Archefeld resolves to convert to 3.5 or Pathfinder because his player has no idea how anything works.

My 3.5 duskblade resolves to never play with that killer DM ever again. Should've left the moment he said "I will be determining what class you take when you level up based on your roleplay."

Finally, my S&S Hunter Zeke resolves to reevaluate his goals, priorities, and coworkers to determine what he's still doing on a pirate ship filled with people he hates, people he hates more, and one dashingly suave gnome bard who is his only real friend.

Unlawful slaughtering of an intelligent creature without proper permission from the local regent and necessary permits?

You can make your excuses to the judge, buddy! You're off to the big house!

I think the other 100+ half-characters I've made are resolving to join forces and break free of the prison known only as "Lunias's Spare Characters Folder" to overthrow the cruel creator that never finished their backstories or ran them in a game. It's sort of like the claw machine in Toy Story except all the alien plushies are trying to clamber out the machine to find the manufacturer and... Hang on, someone's at the door. Brb.
