Just realized Keftiu had not created this thread yet :-)

Uplifted by the Dark Archive rules, dealing with amnesia and investigating paranormal events, this AP is taking you across the Broken Lands, from the River Kingdoms to Sarkoris to who knows where.

Maybe Numeria for the alien touch. Or will it be Razmiran and its living god ?

In any case, which character concepts come forth from the vast deeps of your imagination ?

I still feel like I can’t get my arms around this one. Everything in it sounds right up my alley, but I’m still pretty mystified about how it all coheres.

Book 1 had me thinking about Ithuriel, my elven diplomat Psychic from Kyonin, but I’m not so sure the rest of this fits her so well. I’m unsure! Might be waiting for the Player’s Guide for this one.

Book Two apparently sets the players on a quest regarding and "alien being responsible for their missing memories," who might or might not be Castrovin and I really hope isn't the King in Yellow again.

And yes, my mind immediately jumped to "elf pilgrim" at the description of book one too.


At the risk of sounding like a parody of myself, I'm really struggling to imagine anything other than Psychic PCs for this - what other option is there, once we've established that aliens messed with my character's brain?

I suppose a wandering, masterless Aldori fits pretty much any story in the region, but would one really become a "paranormal investigator"?

Depends, is the pay good?


It's fairly simple for an Investigator to qualify for the Aldori Duelist archetype, so you'd just need some way of becoming psychic.

I read "elf pilgrim" in the posts and now all I can think of is an elf in old-timey clothes fighting with a flintlock and a big axe or sword. Likely a gunslinger for the easier synergy.

Elf Barbarian.

Punch Alien.

Also you could flavor Spirit Instinct as being residual psychic energies from others or what not, plenty of ways to flavor it.

I was thinking the "strange powers" that come with the amnesia might be a free Psychic MC Dedication.

Investigator with some magic, maybe through Psychic MC Dedication, would likely be my pick here.

Or maybe with Magus Dedication, to have a surprise nova strike underneath the unassuming weak Martial exterior.

I usually play clerics, so for this I'd probably end up as a champion or cleric of Desna. If no one in the group is into having a psychic, maybe an aberrant-bloodline sorcerer. A witch who comes to Sevenarches just looking to investigate ancient curses and gets swept up into the events of the AP might be another spell caster option.
