GM R0B0GEISHA's Ironfang Invasion Recruitment


51 to 100 of 120 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | next > last >>

Introducing Cooper Hawkes, a Human (Taldan) Hunter and his wolf companion Mikela, Mickey for short. Coop and Mickey wander the Fangwood keeping an eye out for any dangerous beasts that might prey upon those who call the forest and it's environs home.
They find themselves in Phaendar on that fateful day to purchase supplies during the Market Festival before returning to the woods again.

I have Dalvin Arikani, a gnome hunter who was beset by the Darkblight in Fangwood Forest during his childhood, and his companion Drako the dog.

Background Notes:
Variam Molliern was the only child to two wealthy Alkenstar merchants, spoiled to within an inch of his life and given whatever he wanted while he grew up. Unfortunately, the boy grew up without a sense of purpose of much of a moral compass, and by the time of his late teens had fallen in with a group of Mana Waste raiders who specialized in attacking caravans heading to and from Alkenstar. For Variam, it was basically a lark: one more way to rebel and pres for the boundaries his parents had never set for him. For the other raiders, though, it was an opportunity. They let Variam accompany them on some short, nearby raids, gaining his trust and his love for the thrills of raiding. And then, lured out further from the city than ever, they turned on him, trying first to hold him for ransom to his parents and then, after the money was paid, using him as a scapegoat for the bandits' raids. The betrayal was the first time Variam's eyes were truly opened to other people, and he was lucky to escape the lesson with his life.

Wanted by the gunmarshals and having been burned by everyone around him, Variam fled north, trying to lose himself as thoroughly as possible. Eventually he found his way to Nirmathas and specifically Phaendar, where he finally settled, and although he has turned his hand back to raiding traders traveling to or from Druma or Tamran or anywhere in Molthune, Phaendar and those traveling to or from there are safe from the predations of the so-called Blackpowder Butcher. This is his home now, and he's come to love it - and to his surprise, they love him too. He makes wind sculptures in his spare time, and though few understand how he can support himself with the few sales he makes (and his frequent gifts of completed works), a Variam piece is a mark of some distinction now in Phaendar homes. He's especially looking forward to this spring's Market Festival, because he has collaborated with local alchemist Vane Oreld on a spinning work that will be driven by four lit fireworks - very exciting! Yes, this Market Festival will be one to remember...

Appearance: Variam is in his mid-thirties, hale and healthy even as he approaches middle age. He has caramel-brown skin and dark hair, the legacy of his Alkenstar heritage, and is typically seen around town with a padded jacket, leather chaps over cotton pants, and boots. When he assaults merchants as the Blackpowder Butcher, the change is more about attitude than actual disguise - the only thing he modifies in terms of actual appearance is a wide-brimmed hat a kerchief to hide his noes and mouth. He normally carries a pistol in a holster as Variam, but prefers his musket for his raiding. Th Blackpowder Butcher is entirely merciless, killing or maiming at even the slightest provocation, while Variam is know for his kindness to the locals.

GM Notes:
I am currently GMing three tables of Ironfang Invasion on these boards, but I would love to experience the game as a player as well. I assure you I will have no difficulty separating IC and OOC knowledge. Please ask if you any other issues or concerns about the character or me as a player.

Here is my 1/2 Elven Fey Caller unchained summoner. Next post will be from the eidolon.

All relevant facts are in the character profile, I think. I'd be happy to made any changes or listen to any suggestions.

Thanks for the consideration.

Here is Bwenga, Amiya's dryad-ish eidolon.

Here is my submission: Wulram Bartos, a Human Flame Spirit Shaman, and village blacksmith. Info in profile.

GM: I have taken the Frontier Healer trait. I want to check whether this will work with Healing Hex (which I plan to take at 2nd lvl). The trait's wording is a bit ambiguous (Healing Hex acts as Cure Light Wounds but isn't specifically a cure spell itself).

I'm submitting Kudera Rivani for consideration. Her backstory and description were just uploaded. Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can clarify anything.

Side question for R0B0GEISHA: I'm interested in going with the Herb Witch archetype as it would probably be more thematic for the Adventure Path, but RAW would prevent me from taking a hex (other than cauldron) till level 3. If I went with that archetype, would you allow me to use my level 1 feats for extra hexes? Thanks in advance!

I don't see why not.

Great! Thank you.

I never knew my parents.

The old woman that raised me, Mama Gotti, often said they abandoned me for being a monster. I guess she was right. I've got fangs. They're small, but I've got 'em. I've also got the ears of a wolf or one o' them mean huntin' dogs rich people use. I can hear pretty good with them, but it makes it hard to hide when I'm feelin' down or happy. Never a good thing around that old witch. My eyes are also wrong. They're different colors, silver and blue.

She raised me, taught me manners and that kinda thing, but she never missed a chance to tell me how worthless I was, or how much of an ugly monster I was. I never saw it, but then, I guess monsters don't see themselves as monsters. Sometimes, someone would comment on how pretty I was, but she let me know right quick that it was only out of pity. Didn't matter how much I looked like some o' the pretty girls 'round town, no one with mis-matched eyes and dog's ears could be pretty.

I guess she was right.

Some o' the other kids would play with me, but some o' the others would chase me an' throw rocks at me. They even ripped up the only pretty dress I ever got the only time I wore it. Told me I was too ugly to wear pretty things. The kids that'd play with me tried to cheer me up, and I tried, I really did. I guess they could tell I was lying when I said I was okay.

Mama Gotti never did buy me a pretty dress after that. Said I was too stupid an' clumsy to bother with it. That's when she got me apprenticed to the bowery. He and his sister agreed to teach me things an' pay me for any help I gave 'em. Mama Gotti told me I was old enough and threw me out when I started my apprenticeship. From the way my mentor and his sister looked when I told them about it, they musta thought I'd done somethin' wrong.

That first winter was hard. I didn't have enough food to last, an' what I did have went bad after a few weeks. I passed out one night while tryin' to build a fire, and woke up shiverin' in my mentor's home. He told me I was stayin' with him while I was his apprentice. I think that made Mama Gotti mad. She hardly ever talked to me after that, though she washed out my mouth with soap when I started speakin' strange languages. I never had no schoolin', but I was able to speak these languages no one had heard. Mama Gotti said it was 'cause I was cursed.

I guess she was right.

Some of the people in town said I was a werewolf an' would kill 'em all. Other's said I was possessed, or I had demon blood in me, or that I was a beast given the form o' man. Didn't help that I don't know what I am. After my apprenticeship was over, I started wanderin' the woods. I'd bring back some o' my kills, though the coin was never as good as others got. The butcher an' tanner say it's 'cause I don't bring in good 'nough kills. Mostly, though I keep to myself.

No one likes a monster. Goblins sometimes get too close, an' I got real good at killin' 'em. I feel kinda sad when I do. They're monsters, just like me. Does that mean that someone's gonna kill me an' take my ears for some bounty? Maybe that's why I do it. If I can kill 'em and keep 'em from town an' all the people in it, maybe they'll think I'm not a monster, or that I'm not a monster that's a bad monster.

I made the mistake of telling Mama Gotti this once. She said I was stupid. Monsters are monsters, and nothing will make good people love a monster. I guess I should know better, but it's hard. I guess monsters want to belong too. Is that why they keep comin' to town and too close to good people?

I don't know. Mama Gotti would probably say that I'm stupid for thinkin' that.

I guess she'd be right.

I haven't told her about somethin' that's been happenin' to me lately, though. If Mama Gotti knew, she'd say I was mad. She'd probably be right. Normal people, good people, don't hear voices in their head, do they? They don't hear someone callin' to them where no one else can, right? I heard that happens to people with guilty consciouses, whatever those are. I don't know what I did, an' I've prayed and prayed for forgiveness.

But monsters don't get forgiven for being monsters, do they.

I tried to ignore 'em. I tried to block 'em out, but they wouldn't go away! They just got louder and louder, an' kept tellin' me to follow 'em. I couldn't sleep, or even think. It started to hurt so much I'd cry until I was too tired to do anything but sleep. Even when I did, though, I could still hear 'em. I couldn't stand it.

A man found me by the road durin' one o' those times it was too much. He gave me a drink, somethin' he said would help calm me down. He called it Cayden's Nectar, or somethin' like that, though I think it was just ale. I drank until I was warm an' everythin' tingled. It was nice. I felt like I was floatin'. It was so nice that I almost didn't realize the voices were very quiet.

Mama Gotti says I've turned into a drunk, or somethin', but it's not like I take the drinks for free. I pay with coin from the furs an' skins an' meat I bring in. Still, she says I've shown my true nature, or somethin', and it's only a matter o' time before I start doin' bad things. Some of the townsfolk agree with her, but I don't want to do bad things. I just want the voices to stop callin' me and speakin' in my head.

I just want to be left alone.

Here is the submission for Malkk Dilkash, half-orc slayer (sniper).


Str: 16 + 2 = 18
Dex: 14
Con: 14
Int: 12
Wis: 12
Cha: 7

Darkvision: Half-orcs can see in the dark up to 60 feet.
Orc Blood: Half-orcs count as both humans and orcs for any effect related to race.
Orc Ferocity: Once per day, when a half-orc is brought below 0 hit points but not killed, he can fight on for 1 more round as if disabled. At the end of his next turn, unless brought to above 0 hit points, he immediately falls unconscious and begins dying.
Shaman's Apprentice: Only the most stalwart survive the years of harsh treatment that an apprenticeship to an orc shaman entails. Half-orcs with this trait gain Endurance as a bonus feat.
Weapon Familiarity: Half-orcs are proficient with greataxes and falchions and treat any weapon with the word "orc" in its name as a martial weapon.
Languages: Common, Draconic, Goblin, Orc

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A slayer is proficient with all simple and martial weapons, as well as with light armor, medium armor, and shields (except tower shields).

Studied Target (Ex): A slayer can study an opponent he can see as a move action. The slayer then gains a +1 bonus on Bluff, Knowledge, Perception, Sense Motive, and Survival checks attempted against that opponent, and a +1 bonus on weapon attack rolls and weapon damage rolls against it. The DCs of slayer class abilities against that opponent increase by 1. A slayer can maintain these bonuses against only one opponent at a time; these bonuses remain in effect until either the opponent is dead or the slayer studies a new target.

If a slayer deals sneak attack damage to a target, he can study that target as an immediate action, allowing him to apply his studied target bonuses against that target (including to the normal weapon damage roll).

At 5th, 10th, 15th, and 20th levels, the bonuses on weapon attack rolls, damage rolls, and skill checks and to the DCs of slayer abilities against a studied target increase by 1. In addition, at each such interval, the slayer is able to maintain these bonuses against an additional studied target at the same time. The slayer may discard this connection to a studied target as a free action, allowing him to study another target in its place.

At 7th level, a slayer can study an opponent as a move or swift action.

Chernasardo Hopeful: You’ve pledged your skills and your life to the Chernasardo rangers, studying to protect your homeland from foreign invaders. You currently remain a neophyte in this secretive guerrilla army. You have yet to be entrusted with many of their secrets, and spend a great deal of time training with the old ranger Aubrin in Phaendar to hone your skills of hunting and tracking. In forest or plains terrain, you may reduce a single target’s effective level of concealment against you (from total concealment to concealment to not concealed) by studying your natural surroundings as a move action. This reduced concealment ends immediately once the target moves from its current location. At 10th level, you may study your terrain as a swift action instead.
Weathered Emissary: Your travels in the wildlands gave you insight into how to survive their dangers and communicate with their inhabitants. You gain a +1 trait bonus on all Linguistics and Survival checks, and Linguistics is always a class skill for you.

Endurance: You gain a +4 bonus on the following checks and saves: Swim checks made to resist nonlethal damage from exhaustion; Constitution checks made to continue running; Constitution checks made to avoid nonlethal damage from a forced march; Constitution checks made to hold your breath; Constitution checks made to avoid nonlethal damage from starvation or thirst; Fortitude saves made to avoid nonlethal damage from hot or cold environments; and Fortitude saves made to resist damage from suffocation.
You may sleep in light or medium armor without becoming fatigued.
Power Attack: You can choose to take a –1 penalty on all melee attack rolls and combat maneuver checks to gain a +2 bonus on all melee damage rolls. This bonus to damage is increased by half (+50%) if you are making an attack with a two-handed weapon, a one handed weapon using two hands, or a primary natural weapon that adds 1-1/2 times your Strength modifier on damage rolls. This bonus to damage is halved (–50%) if you are making an attack with an off-hand weapon or secondary natural weapon. When your base attack bonus reaches +4, and every 4 points thereafter, the penalty increases by –1 and the bonus to damage increases by +2. You must choose to use this feat before making an attack roll, and its effects last until your next turn. The bonus damage does not apply to touch attacks or effects that do not deal hit point damage.

Malkk Dilkash was born in Urgir, in the Hold of Belkzen. He was never considered a particularly large or strong child, but he wasn't weak or sickly, either. He suffered through the other kids' ridicule and derision until, when he turned 7, he was chosen to become an apprentice to the tribe's shaman.


How humiliating... thinks Malkk as the tribe's shaman moves down the line of 7-year-olds. Four young boys stand next to the shaman thus far, full of pride, ugly smiles on their ugly faces. A sickly-looking one, whose mother had obviously bribed the old orc to take him on, grins foolishly as he joins the others. He won't last a year.... As the decrepit shaman's shuffling gait brings him closer, the young half-orc's pulse quickens. Why am I so nervous? Everyone knows he hates half-breeds; no chance he's going to choo... His thoughts are interrupted by a stern voice echoing in the small room. "You will come with me, half-breed." The old orc's finger points at Maligoth, unwavering. The young half-orc quickly looks around him, confirms there is no mistake, no misunderstanding, then steps forward to the shaman's side. Well, this should be interesting...


"You are weak! A failure! You will never succeed, in this or anything!" the old orc screamed at Malkk, his eyes crazed. Again, Malkk's lessons had degraded into name-calling and other expressions of his master's boundless frustration. "You are not deserving of my time, my food, or my shelter! You will sleep outside from now on, fend for yourself, train yourself! Go, I have wasted enough time on you!"

Malkk left, then, smiling. He knew that this was his final victory over his master. Former master, that is. Through all of the pain, torture, exhaustion, as well as the attempt on his life not three days ago, he had survived. Of course, it had taken three years to get to this point, but that was better than another two years to finish out his apprenticeship. Now he was free.

Well, free might not be the right word... He realized that, despite the reasons behind it, this "failure" would reflect badly on him. He would suffer for it, but he was determined to make the most of the situation. In fact, now that he was getting bigger, he could start training himself for other, more fitting jobs. Scout, for example, had always sounded intriguing.


Malkk's bow creaks quietly and his bowstring shudders under the strain as his hand nears his cheek. He looks along the arrow at his targets: two human children who have wandered off on their own, too near the area he was scouting. They're completely oblivious to his presence as they pick wild flowers and sing softly to each other; their giggling echoes off the nearby trees as they begin playing some game or another. He holds the string for five seconds, then ten, twenty...then he sighs and releases the tension in the string. If I leave them, the next scout will surely kill them, or follow their tracks back to their home. It would be as if I had killed them myself. He sighs again and steps forward to reveal himself to the children, to warn them and theirs of the need to move or defend themselves.


Years have passed since those days, and, once the people got over their initial distrust of him, Maligoth was accepted into their society. He doesn't live in town, but keeps mostly to himself, living in the lands near Phaendar. Given his past, he is understandably uncomfortable around people. He spends quite a bit of time with Aubrin, the old ranger, honing his skills and learning what he can about the Chernasardo rangers, having pledged himself to the defense of these lands that are his new home.

I'm still working on a submission, thinking now of making a Mounted Fury barbarian that later prestiges into Mammoth Rider. Seems like this is a campaign where you could feasibly ride around on a Huge sized animal most of the time.

If I get chosen, would it be possible to work the Damned story feat (and/or the devil-bound template) into the story, and if so, around what level?

Still kicking around a few ideas in my head for a submission.
Just trying to narrow down what I can come up with.
Is the material from any Player's Comanions, like People of the North, acceptable?

Short Background:

Keelex was part of a small grove a few miles from Phaendar, he grew up there, trained there, even met Nagi there. Life was quiet, peaceful. Nature helped them, and they helped nature. as was their duty, and their pleasure. He was one of the few druids blessed by their deity, destined to carry the bloodline of Naga into the future of their grove and their families

But his grove and his family were not destined to see this from him. The blight. It came without warning, no time to flee or prepare. it swallowed their grove in a matter of hours. Blackness. death. Decay. Disease. All in one, crashing down on them. when he came to, he was near a well, people around him, he could feel he had had some water, how and when, eluded him. his face throbed, and looking into a pool of water, he realised the blight did not pass him by. A blackened scar was across his face, his scales marred into a blackish hue. yet. he survived. Dumb luck? or divine intervention? he did not know. but he did know that these people, from Phaendar, they helped him, and he would try to return the favour. Nagi and himself will repay them in any way possible

Hi Robogeisha! Here's my submission for the game, as we talked by PM. Thanks again for hosting.

Grand Lodge

Here is my submission, the Feral Hunter Archetype for Hunter. I know a lot of hunters have made submissions, but my character isn't a traditional hunter.

If you aren't familiar with the Feral Hunter Archetype, pretty much basically they trade the Animal Companion for being able to use the Hunter's Aspect on themselves at will without limits, can wildshape like a druid, and gain some bonuses to summoning spells. You can find the details of the archetype here..

Bonus Feat - Humans select one extra feat at 1st level.

Skilled - Humans gain an additional skill rank at first level and one additional rank whenever they gain a level.

Reckless - You have a tendency for rash behavior, often disregarding your own safety as you move across the battlefield. You gain a +1 bonus on Acrobatics checks, and Acrobatics is always a class skill for you.

Ironfang Survivor: Whether you were serving in the military or simply beset by a surprise attack, you barely survived an encounter with the Ironfang Legion, one of Molthune’s infamous monster regiments. Maybe you even survived the horrors of the Ramgate Massacre. You can’t scrub the memories of their brutality from your waking or sleeping mind, and you keenly recall their distinctive fighting styles. You gain a +2 dodge bonus to AC against goblinoids, and once per day when you attempt an Intimidate, Sense Motive, or Stealth check against a goblinoid, you can roll two dice and use the better result.

Solitary - Unlike most hunters, a feral hunter does not gain an animal companion.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency - Hunters proficient with all simple and martial weapons and with light armor, medium armor, and shields (except tower shields).

Wild Empathy (Ex) - At 1st level, a hunter can improve the initial attitude of an animal. This ability functions just like a Diplomacy check to improve the attitude of a person (see Chapter 4 of the Core Rulebook). The hunter rolls 1d20 and adds 1 (Hunter level + Charisma modifier + any other bonuses) to determine the wild empathy check result. The typical domestic animal has a starting attitude of indifferent, while wild animals are usually unfriendly.

Feral Focus (Su) - A feral hunter gains a limited ability to change her shape into hybrid animal forms. This functions as the animal focus class feature, except that the hunter always applies the animal aspect to herself, and there is no limit to this ability's duration. She can end this ability as a free action. When a feral hunter uses this ability, her body takes on cosmetic aspects of an animal, such as furry skin, longer nails, elongated teeth, and oddly colored eyes; these changes do not grant her any abilities other than what is stated in the animal focus, and end when she takes on a different aspect or ends the ability. This physical change is a polymorph effect, though the effects of the animal focus are not.
Available Feral Focuses are listed in the description found further down here

Background and Description:

Mihai stands roughly six feet tall, although he is as likely to be hunched as standing straight. His olive skin is usually lined with dirt, and his long hair and beard hang wild and ragged around his face. But despite his feral appearance, his eyes gleam with cunning and intelligence. Hanging over a grey-green suit of studded leather armor is a bandolier with several daggers. He casually leans on the massive great club that he wields when fighting.

Mihai’s role in a group. He doesn’t have much in the way of social skills, being heavily scarred and half-feral. However, with the ability to use any of the hunter aspects at any time he has significant boosts to physical skills. He also has a knowledge of nature and various monsters. He can make an efficient scout, and does pretty well going toe to toe with the enemy as well. His usual strategy depends on what he is doing. If he is traveling with a group, he has Aspect of the Falcon active in order to keep the bonus to perception so he can look for danger, and then will switch to Aspect of the Bull when he closes for combat. If he is scouting he has Aspect of the Owl active to boost his sneak skill and will switch to either Tiger or Bull depending on whether he is using his club or bow.

Mihai’s grandfather was a Varisian traveler named Luca who decided to settle down in Nirmathas. Settling down to become a farmer near Phaendar, he got married and had a two sons, named Muri(Mihai’s father), and Hali (his uncle). Hali became a druid and lives in Crystalhurst, while Luca and Muri farmed the land along with Mihai’s older brother Szal. While most of Mihai’s family are friendly with the rest of the farmers and tradesmen of Phaendar, Mihai tends to be disconnected from anyone except for his own family. He is exceptionally close to his mother Aishe, and his nephew Anders and niece Millie, much to the chagrin of their Chelaxian mother Ann.

Not much of one for farming, Mihai left the fields to the rest of his family. He took to roaming along the Nesmian plains, and up into the Fangwood forest when he was a young boy, and was the happier for it. It wasn’t long past his twelfth year that he first experienced what he came to call “The inner beast”. He found that when he wanted to move around the wilds unseen the serenity of an owl would settle on him. When he wanted to track wild game to take home for his family’s larder, he could pick up the scent with a sense of smell as keen as a wolf’s. And when he ran into goblins or orcs and had to fight for his life, his muscles bulged with the strength of a charging bull. So, while his family farmed and sold crops in town, Mihai hunted and trapped the plains and forests near Phaendar, trading furs and smoked meat.

Recently, both Luca and Muri were actively involved in the Nirmathi siege that ended in the Ironfang Massacre as scouts, and both were killed in the battle. Mihai himself was traveling to bring his father and grandfather supplies when he was ambushed by a scouting party of the hobgoblin army and narrowly escaped into the woods with his life. The experience left him emotionally and physically scarred, but alive. While he has little attachment to Phaendar, he has a deep-seated hatred for the hobgoblin army, and would be driven to rage if any more of his family were to fall in the hobgoblin onslaught.

  • Backstory:
    More than just about anything else, I enjoy relaxing. Just going out into the wild, where no one can bother me, and just breathing. I’m not really a people person. Too much effort, not enough reward. To that end, I ran away from home when I was 16. My dad had died, and I found out that he was not actually my dad. Turns out my mom had cheated on him. I should have known really. I’m significantly larger and rougher than most of the other Taldans, courtesy of my Kellid father. I got my moms amber eyes and auburn hair though. Guess that’s why I never caught on. Anyway. Took my dad’s old army gear and left without looking back.

    Turns out, 16 year olds aren’t known for their excessive competence. Just about died after maybe a week or so. Some rangers from the Wildwood lodge found me and brought me there. I mostly just spent the next few years following them around. They did a pretty regular route from the lodge to Crystalhurst in Nirmathas. They were good to me, and I learned a lot from them. Not enough, however, to avoid the hobgoblin raiding party that nearly took me out. Once again, they saved me.

    After that I mostly stuck to the Fangwood. Even though my physical recovery was quick, I still haven’t really gotten over it. Now I mostly just bum around, hunting and occasionally acting as a guide. The Green Faith druids are still good to me, and the ranger pack that I travelled with still visits from time to time, but now I mostly just stay in the little town of Phaendar and wonder what I’m going to do with my life.

    Question: can we take into account age effects?

    Hi, GMR0b0geisha:

    It are I, Xunal, with my submission.
    Under the name Caðog

    I think I put together a decent backstory for him.

    Let me know if there are any oopsies in his profile I need to change.


    Caðog's Introduction:

    A short squat rustic and plainly dressed half-orc approaches most any
    stranger in Phaendar. He's unsually affable for a half half-orc and eager to
    chat with fellow travellers to the village.

    "Hi, I'm Caðog. Don't hold it against me that I'm a half-orc. I've had a
    lucky life so far. Much of that luck has been downright horrid. I'm an orphaned
    slave from Freedom Town in Belkzen. An Ironic start, isn't it?"

    "My human ancestry is from the far North. That's probably where my magical
    talents with water came from. My Kellid mother, Dekja, was an escaped slave who
    somehow made her way to Freedom Town. She died when I was quite young and I
    became a slave to a Chelish loan shark, Marotis. Apart from being an orc who
    insisted on covering me with these lucky tattoos, I know nothing of my father.
    Probably just as well."

    "I did escape from Belkzen, into nearby Ustalav. An unpleasant place, to be
    sure. But it was still an improvement for me. I drifted to Caliphas and did earn
    a meagre living as a fisherman there. But after a dust-up with a nobleman's son,
    I had to get on the first boat out of town. Which is how my luck became good for
    once and I found myself in Tamran here in Nirmathas."

    "While many Nirmathi aren't too fond of half-orcs, I've been treated much
    better here than in Ustalav, so I can't complain about my new home. Bad luck
    found me again, though. Not long after I set myself up to do some fishing along
    the Marideth River, I was caught in the midst of a raid by the Ironfang

    "So I had to do a runner. Again. By a great stroke of good luck, though, I
    survived, and also learnt a few handy tricks to deal with both goblins and

    "Now that things have settled down, I am in Phaendar to sell some fish. I
    rather like this little town. The only place I've haven't been treated as an
    outcast. I'm still getting used to the idea of being able to chat people up. As
    you've probably noticed."

    "Things should be rather pleasant here the next few days, don't you think?"

    Notes for GMR0b0geisha:
    I gave Caðog all above-average stats for a reason.
    If selected, and should he live long enough, he'll probably pick up a couple of levels as a Brawler.
    Just to make him more durable in a fight sort of thing.
    And it would be a bit more in keeping with his back story.
    That would be my cunning plan!

    The the thing most notice about Charlotte first is her lack of colours, skin white like fresh milk, hair like silk, only her red eyes give her body a hint of colour. She wears a travelling cloak of fine make that has seen better days, under the coak is a also quite worn set of riding clothes, hidden beneath those she wears an slightly rusty suit of chainmeil .


    Charlotte was practically raised by the staff of the mansion she grew up in. Her mother tended to visit, the mansion close to the Fangwood once or twice a year, but send letters regularly. The times she saw her father can be counted on one hand.

    She grew up sheltered, learning all things a lady needs to know. She rarely left the grounds, venturing into the gardens in the hours of twilight.

    In recent years she snuck out from time to time, heading for the closest village to see people, besides the ones working in the mansion.

    Her sheltered live came to an abrupt end, when  a small troupe of hobgoblins attacked the mansion. She was reading a book like she used to do at night when she heard the sound of fighting and two goblinoids barged into her room. When the two brutes closed in on her she used her inane powers, the ones that are the reason she has been exiled to this old hunting abode. A thought caused one of the attacker's to turn onto the other, striking down the surprise creature with his Morningstar. The scent of blood thick in the air she walked up to the dazed creature, her fangs , tiny but noticeable, lengthening. As her fangs sunk into the soldiers throat her teeth were sharp like needles. The hobgoblins eyes went from confusion about how his best friend could do something like that to understanding to horror and finally went dim. Coming back to her senses the dhampir's horror about what she had just done was pushed back by the worry about her surrogate family.
    Her appearance in the great Hall, her eyes glowing in a baleful red, mouth and fangs still covered in blood caused the hobgoblins to flee, as they thought that they had come face to face with a full vampire in the middle of the night.
    But she was to late, none of the staff had survived, they fought valiantly but futily. Charlotte broke down crying. When she had no more tears to cry she got up, picked up a shovel and started to dig holes and pick up  bodys, a task that should have been imposible with her tiny frame. After she buried those that loved her she decided that she couldn't stay here any longer, so she picked up anything that seemed useful or valuable to her, including the Morningstar of the first being she killed. Before leaving she set fire to the mansion,  a act both symbolic and practical to not let anything fall to the raiders.

    Her aimless travels that should finally lead her to Phendar, were marked by hardship and danger, both overcome by adaption and natural skills.

    @ GM R0B0GEISHA, not sure if you got one of my PM...

    Dotting (late to this, I know). I'll be submitting an Unchained Rogue (knife master) - details coming soon.

    Hey GM,

    You are asking for a completed back-story, and a description of the characters appearance and personality and said the word commitment twice in your opening post so you definitely got me very interested.

    The problem is that I'm currently out of the country and with very limited time to post.

    I am thinking of a human (maybe half-elf) brawler, a local trapper that frequently trades with the town.

    I have a couple of days so I'll see what I can come up with.

    If not, then have a great game!

    For starters, here's the build for my character, a half-elf rogue with the Knife Master and Bandit archetypes. Hopefully I'll be able to get the background and whatnot in before the deadline.

    SQ Finesse Training, Hidden Blade, Keen Senses
    Other Gear Rogue’s kit, spring-loaded wrist sheath x2, studded leather armor, 20 arrows, 24gp

    I'm actually pushing the deadline another day, to Friday at 9 pm EST.

    I won't be able to use my computer tomorrow night.

    Submitting Katyeva, last name unknown.

    Background, description and stats are all completed.

    Hearing a distant voice in his head say something about some sort of deadline Claustipher nods, not sure why, and heads back to the bar. The young woman's problem was not so complicated that some novice spells could not handle the problem.

    As he arrives a "young" dwarf mentions the Minespin Mountains. "A yes, I met a lovely family there once. The... hmmm. Redkegs, it think, yes that it! Well they were excellent smiths and, well, ...."

    He continued like this for some time.

    Let me know if there are any oopsies in his profile I need to change. Thanks! ** spoiler omitted **...

    Copycat? =/

    If there are any overlaps with your character, it wasn't intentional.
    I never look at the other applicant profiles in a recruitment thread.

    Finally found the time to finish him. I was lucky you extended the deadline. Anyway, here is Llarth, my Life Spirit Shamwow. Will correct stuff and modify as necessary later. For now, I need to sleep because it is late as hell for me.

    Note that I raised his strength: the extra low stat made no sense at all, and had the evil stench of min-max.


    Please consider Pinto Donasetti for inclusion in your game.

    His fluff and crunch are spoilered below; I'll of course make an alias if selected to start playing.

    I am playing in a few games and am GMing three games on the boards (well, two game now because we just finished one game). I am a long time poster and I like long-term games with committed players.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks for hosting.

    Game on!

    A trapper by trade and an outdoorsman by vocation, Pinto was born in a small village to family of hunters. He remembers hunting with his father and brothers until late in his teen years. As his parents grew older, they went to settle in the outskirts of Tamran. Pinto went along but did not stay very long; the outdoors was too ingrained in him and he left on his own.
    He started to work as a trapper in the Southern Fangwood Forest and shipped his pelts down the Maredith River to the ‘big city’ of Tamran. This allowed him to keep in touch with his family. However, trapping was far better the further west he went so he started to edge his trade upriver and eventually became a frequent visitor of Phaendar.
    Trapping keeps him interned in the wilds so he never quite settled in the small town. He even started a small company with a couple of other trappers and built a couple of cabins out in the woods so his visits to town started to become less and less frequent.
    Then disaster struck. His company had started to become too successful and caught the attention of local bandits. A simple attempt at extortion turned ugly when Pinto maimed the messenger. The bandits came back in full force and attacked his cabins. They locked his trapper friends in their cabins and burned them to the ground. Pinto was left alive, barely, but with a nasty burn scar on his face.
    That was over ten years ago and he still bears the scars and the grudge of that fateful day. He harbors a deep hatred and thirst of revenge for those bandits. He continued to ply his trapping trade, alone this time, and his visits to Phaender become more and more frequent.

    Pinto has always been an even-tempered man. Slow to anger, he seems like a very serious man at first. Once you get to know him, he strikes you as a man who likes to live the moment and enjoy life to the fullest. He enjoys a wry sense of humor, which may take some time to get used to.
    Uncomplicated in his desires. Loyal to his peers and to his internal value systems, but not overly concerned with respecting laws and rules if they get in the way of getting something done. He excels at finding solutions to practical problems.
    Adaptable, action-oriented. Focused on immediate results. Living in the here-and-now, he's a risk-taker who lives fast-paced lifestyles. Impatient with long explanations.
    Assertive and outspoken - he is driven to lead. Excellent ability to understand difficult organizational problems and create solid solutions. Intelligent and well-informed. He values knowledge and competence, and usually has little patience with inefficiency or disorganization.
    Not that he cares to admit it, but Pinto is definitely uneasy around fire, given the tragedy that befell his friends.

    Ht: 6' 2"
    Wt: 230 lbs
    Age: 40
    Hair: Black
    Eyes: Brown
    Skin: Tan
    Dark hair, heavy eyebrows, and ample facial hair frame Pinto’s face. A nasty burn scar mars an otherwise handsome face. A drab brown tunic covers his hide shirt; leather pants and boots complement his simple attire.
    He is called a big-boned man and his ample girth attests to that. However, living in the outdoors, has kept him in excellent shape. He carries a handaxe strapped to his waist next to a large skinning knife.

    Here's my concept:

    Jevras Harner, Order of the Green:

    Jevras Harnar
    Male human (Varisian) cavalier (emissary) 1 (Pathfinder Player Companion: Animal Archive, Pathfinder RPG Advanced Player's Guide 32, Pathfinder RPG Ultimate Combat 36)
    NG Medium humanoid (human)
    Init +3; Senses Perception +2

    Speed 30 ft.

    Str 16, Dex 14, Con 12, Int 13, Wis 13, Cha 12
    Base Atk +1; CMB +4; CMD 16
    Feats Endurance, Mounted Combat
    Traits blight-burned, tactician
    Skills Diplomacy +5, Handle Animal +5 (+9 to force this mount into an Unnatural Aura.), Knowledge (nature) +5, Linguistics +2, Perception +2, Ride +2 (+6 to force this mount into an Unnatural Aura.), Stealth +4, Survival +7 (+8 to track aberrations and outsiders); Racial Modifiers +2 Stealth, +2 Survival
    Languages Common, Dwarven, Goblin, Varisian
    SQ mount (horse (bodyguard) named Faurod), order of the green, shared vigilance
    Other Gear scale mail, bastard sword, crossbow bolts (20), light crossbow, 62 gp
    Special Abilities
    Animal Companion Link (Ex) Handle or push Animal Companion faster, +4 to checks vs. them.
    Endurance +4 to a variety of fort saves, skill and ability checks. Sleep in L/M armor with no fatigue.
    Green's Challenge +1 (1/day) (Ex) +1 to damage target, -2 AC vs. others when used, +1 to attack when not challenging plants or animals.
    Military Tradition (ART) Proficient with Bastard Sword and Double Crossbow.
    Mount (Ex) Gain the services of a special animal companion.
    Mounted Combat (1/round) Once per round you can attempt to negate a hit to your mount in combat.
    Practiced Hunter (ART) +2 racial Bonus on Stealth and Survival; Stealth and Survival as class skills
    Shared Vigilance (Ex) A bodyguard and its master both gain Alertness as a bonus feat whenever they are adjacent. This ability replaces share spells.
    Appearance: Tall with olive skin bronzed from the constant exposure to the sun, Jevras keeps his hair cut short and beard neatly trimmed more by habit than any other reasons. His turquoise eyes reflect his intelligence and sense of humor.

    Personality: Quiet and reserved, In unfamiliar situations or among unfamiliar people, Jevras has a tendency to observe rather than speak. Once he gets familiar with his surroundings and companions, Jevras opens up and his humor and good cheer come out. In combat however, he becomes focused on ending the battle as quickly as possible without injuries to himself or his companions.

    Background: When you are born and raised in the Fangwood Forest and your parents are a Chernsado Ranger and her husband (who himself is a veteran of many battles for the Worldwound), a ordered life full of peace and tranquility is not in the Harrow Cards for you.

    Such was the early life of Jevras Harnar. From the time he was old enough to hold a weapon his mother made sure he was equipped with the skills to, if for nothing else, feed himself and survive in the wilderness (which the Fangwood made hard enough). Shortly before his tenth birthday fate revealed the dark corner it had in store for him, inflicting him and several others in the village with the Darkblight after they had been attacked by infected fey. Jevras showed his deeply rooted strength by beating the infection when so many others (including his father) hadn't.
