High level dungeon run. Lights Last Hope


Recruitment

1 to 50 of 186 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | next > last >>
Silver Crusade

Hey all, I am looking to run a higher level scenario. It will basically be me testing out the last encounter/dungeon for a campaign of mine I am running IRL and want to make memorable, both for the combat, and for the RP. The basic premise is, an Anti-paladin and a lich have teamed up and began covering the land in a dark mist that raises the dead, drains the living, and corrupts the land. The armies of the lands are held at bay by literal hordes of undead lead by terrors even paladins would tremble at the sight of. You, the players here, are the last hope for the land as you are by now considered the hero's, the best of the best. All coming from different walks, be it a cleric gifted immense power by their god to stem the dark tide, a soldier having survived and possible turned the tide of several battles. A ranger or druid having finally lost the battle for the forests against the unending tide of undead and corruption, maybe you are a simple man or woman, having lived by your wits, guile, and lies till now, but have come forward to aid in the final struggle, or some other such thing. Please, have fun with your background and feel free to have them accomplish deeds worthy of level 18 heros! Get invested in your character, and feel free to embellish on the world. If players wish to join their backgrounds feel free to. Make up battles! Make up cities! Create an Army for character to have fought with! Or a druid/Ranger circle they were a part of if you wish. The world is your Oyster or something like that.

If you are interested, this scenario will be a quick, but deadly one. due to its nature, it will be more combat heavy than RP, but RP will still be around and kicking as morale questions and the like will come up. This scenario will take you from level 18 to 20 before the last "boss" fight. SO! without further rambling on my part, here are the

creation rules:
27pt buy
starting level- 18
health- Max health every odd level, half+1 every even.
wealth- wealth by level, no tomes of stat boosting :P
traits- 2 traits no drawbacks
crafting- If you can take 10, have the necessary spells (YOU must have the spells) and meet all the requirements you may craft up to 2 items for their crafted value.
classes- all paizo material is open, you must use unchained versions of classes if they have it unless you have a compelling argument for it.
races- core and featured, if you take teifling or aasimar and wish to swap your SLA, you may roll 3 times and chose from the ones rolled.
No spheres of power, No path of War, if you have a 3pp you are just dieing to play, PM me, I will look over it, but don't get your hopes up.
Templates- I have a special plan for these, so, at the moment no templates are allowed.
variant multiclassing is allowed
fractional BaB is allowed
Background skills are allowed- special skill bonuses allowed only for rogues
Combat stamina is Allowed- Fighters only
Alignment- any
posting requirment, during combat encounters, you will have 24 hours before I bot you prefer 1-2 a day, but 1 is more than fine, when out of combat, I would prefer 1 a day, but will give leeway before advancing on.
Feats- Power attack, piranha strike, and deadly aim are all free feats for everyone.

Reasons to apply and enjoy this game:
-Enjoy a high level combat scenario with RP.
-Test out a end level build you have always wanted to try.
-Free reign to go wild with your backstory and be creative
-RP the Hero(or anti-hero) you always wanted to be!
-Help out a GM with fine-tuning his campaigns "final battle"
-Have free time to spare :P

If I forgot anything, or you have any further questions, Feel free to ask! Recruitment will go for about 2 weeks, hopefully allowing everyone enough time

Looks interesting. I'll see what I can come up with. :)

Rolling for alternate abilities in case I want to go with that:

Alternate Abilities: 1d100 ⇒ 39
Alternate Abilities: 1d100 ⇒ 61
Alternate Abilities: 1d100 ⇒ 15


I think I will play a dwarven Inquisitor.

I have come up with the bones of a human fighter but will need time to dot the Is and cross the Ts... and sort out gear but I guarantee you there'll be a ring of regeneration, I have always wanted to get one on a PC.

Edit: You said no stat-boosting books, but what if we can cast wish? Can we have boosted inherent stats that way with some of our wealth (limited by how many wishes we can cast consecutively?)


dot

just in case
1d100 ⇒ 35
1d100 ⇒ 59
1d100 ⇒ 41


Hrmm. Either a spellcaster or a paladin, I think!


This would be a really good opportunity to try out some of my builds that only come together at high levels... Hmm, I'll be thinking on it.


Dotting, I have some ideas.

hmm. a fair point, but I am going to say no. Partly because it would be a tad unfair, and partly because I forgot that I took Wish out of my campaign.

Also, to add to the OP, I believe I will go ahead and take this time to say I forgot one other thing, I do -not- like the resistance cloak, therefore -Every- Class will have scaling resistances, for you guys, i consider it a +5. Also no cloak of resistance will be purchasable, so feel free to finally use that shoulder/cloak slot for something fun!


Dotting this, I think I'll be making an Oradin.


just in case:
1d100 ⇒ 4
1d100 ⇒ 31
1d100 ⇒ 16


Just in case:

1d100 ⇒ 96

1d100 ⇒ 99

1d100 ⇒ 62

Good riddance!


so for crafting can you use the master craftsman feat? based on what you said i guess not. Also, how would you rule this effect works? it isnt very specific. Undead Controlling


Dot a dot dot

Are we using feat taxes?

Also just in case

1d100 ⇒ 45
1d100 ⇒ 81
1d100 ⇒ 27

Silver Crusade

No master craftsman unless it's part of your character idea. If so PM me what you were thinking about.

No feat tax,

Also, I'll put everything into the campaign info in a day or so, but double slice should have been added to the list of "is no longer a feat" basically you do full damage with off hand weapons without it.


Dot O yes very much dot. I have a very nice level 18 PC in mind

Reasons to apply and enjoy this game:

: All of them,
-Enjoy a high level combat scenario with RP. [ooc]
-Test out a end level build you have always wanted to try.
-Free reign to go wild with your backstory and be creative
-RP the Hero(or anti-hero) you always wanted to be!
-Help out a GM with fine-tuning his campaigns "final battle"
-Have free time to spare :P

1d100 ⇒ 52 [You gain a +2 bonus on saving throws against poison.]

1d100 ⇒ 46 [You gain an additional +2 racial bonus to your Intelligence score.] [O that looks a winner]

1d100 ⇒ 76 [You can hold your breath for 3 rounds longer than normal.]


GM Panic here, This is Rosa Luminass

A big scary 12' tall Cleric of the Hell's.
she is what is know as a "Hound of Hell"
She and others likes her are sent to bring back to Hell evil dowers whose time it up or who have broken a Contact with hell. She has with her a hell blade used to Help doomed evil souls make thire way back to hell for judgment. So why is she helping to save a country. You mistake her intent, she's not, she is here to bring the Anti-paladin BACK to hell. Saving the county is just a byproduct of that task.

Note: She IS LE but more Lawful then evil, she is just doing her job.

Hound of Hell, Think evil devil hell cops and your just about there

I will UP her to Level 18 if your Ok with her.


Dotting for a Warlord Fighter level 18.

Silver Crusade

@Rosa, Go for it, it would work well enough, seeing as the anti-paladin is a lord of darkness that made a contract with Assmody. Go for it.


dotting alchemist/master chymist


I'm working on a spiritualist (ectoplasmist)


I'm gonna give it a shot and throw this guy in there: Darnak

I ran him forever ago in a high level campaign. Gonna have to adjust him mechanically, for sure, but there's the gist of him.

And he's probably gonna look a bit different than he does currently seeing how there's a lot more options these days than there were back in the day.


well here is a submission that may need some adjusting. its all in the alias.

actually may work well with Rosa.

High there Rosa, long time no see...


I can toss in a fighter for this. I think I already have one sitting around at 18th. He won't require much modification (think he had a 25 point build).

Thanks GM and I will add that in to her back story, be warned big old scary Rosa is coming. :)

Edward Sobel :) Yep been a while, hope you and yours are well. O and drbuzzard's here as well. All the old guard hehe be some fun PCs here then.

Scarab Sages

I have an idea for a Blade Adept Arcanist/Eldritch Knight that could be fun for this. I need to sort out the martial dip still (possibly swashbuckler or 2 levels of the swashbuckly paladin perhaps, or the good old fashioned fighter dip). I'll fiddle around with it a bit when I get off work.

Anyone know a way to add Bladed Dash to the arcanist list?

Just in case I go with aasimar/tiefling...

1d100 ⇒ 45
1d100 ⇒ 43
1d100 ⇒ 25

A Ring of Spell Knowledge will let you add an arcane spell to your list, but it counts as one level higher. And takes a ring slot.


OK, here's the fighter build.

Hmm, that's a good idea, but does that work for an Arcanist since they're a weird hybrid prepared/spontaneous?

Far as I can tell, it should work fine. Arcanist is the type of casting wizards should have been anyway imo


This will be my application, Bonifacius the bold, Dwarven Inquisitor/Evangelist of Erastil.


I tried this once. High level is tough. If you're willing I'll give it a shot. Thinking either a caster cleric. Be the Good to Rosa's Evil. Or maybe a Dirge Bard. Fight fire with fire.


Update - Am making a Gnome Life Oracle named Razz

Does that point buy include the 4 ability points a level 18 character would have earner by now?

You know, the ones gained at level 4, 8 etc?


Rosa is done, big bad Cleric of the Hells with and Evil sword to help her drag bad souls back to the pits.

No, you gain the ability points from level as normal

Liberty's Edge

Interested, I hope I got the time.


I have an unarmed barbarian that I have always wanted to try. I will adjust her level and stats accordingly and have her posted tonight.

Liberty's Edge

I'm making a Dhampir Ancestor Oracle with Variant Multiclass in Ghoul Bloodline Sorcerer. She's all about family, and she hates the undead blood that flows in her veins from various sources because it prevents people from moving on to the afterlife and rejoining their families.

She communicates with and gets help from her ancestors on her vast quest to put undead souls to rest by killing them permanently... and specifically, she has family to save that were recently turned undead.


Would a positive channeling focused cleric be too much for this undead heave campaign? I've got one at a lower level I'd love to put forward at this level. If not, maybe an Arcane Trickster would work. I've been wanting to try one of those out.

Silver Crusade

Nope. To be honest, I expected alot more paladins/warpriests/clerics to be submitted

How do you feel about Simulacrums, demiplanes, ring gates and not adventuring in person?

I've got an idea for a wizard who will do his adventuring from his own demiplane - but I think I better check if that's allowed first.

Once the simulacrum is destroyed - he'll make no further attempts to send another.


for those of us that are spellcasters...do you want a list of our spells or commonly cast ones?

Question for ya:
Being an Alchemist I craft alchemical items frequently. Is the crafting of alchemical items the same as the crafting rule you placed of 2 items only?
If not what do you want me to do with crafting alchemical items?


Okay, here's Venn.

history:

While all Pharasmans fight the undead, there are special orders dedicated to seeking out the unbodied. Ghosts, shadows, specters, wraiths. These elite forces seek out the unquiet spirits and send their souls on.

Venn was found as a child, born to a necromantic cult. The cult was destroyed, but the child could not effectively fight. But the youth had a connection to the spirit realm and the ectoplasmic energy. A rare talent and one worth cultivating. Their inherent talents made them perfect weapons against the spirit threat. Because of his looks, it was months later that they found out he was fiend-touched.

Venn trained to become a warrior, wielding ectoplasm and positive energy to kill the fiends. He fought hard for a dozen years, sending many dead to their judgement. At the end, their group was drawn into a vortex into a necromantic demiplane locked away ages ago. A strange geometric temple was filled with the dead and a primordial spirit of death. Perhaps a dead god. When they finally disrupted the plane and left, half of them were gone.

After such a career, he chose to stand down. He married a widow with children. There was no need to pass on tainted blood. He continued in Pharasma's service, preparing the dead for proper burial.

But with the new threat looming over over them, he could not stay alone. He once again donned the suit of grey silk emblazoned with a spirit trapped in the red spiral of Pharasma.
