I would imagine that the easiest way to do that is send him a private message.

Yeah, but if you ever notice how often Alistair walks right into the traps on dragon age, it actually makes a lot of sense. LOL

Not in that exact order but you get the idea. Rogue's on a hell of a good start

Looks good. Not bad at all for a rogue, any ideas on your race yet?

"Argh! I always miss cutoff in interesting games... If you have any open spots or roles in the future, let me know."

I've already been pondering letting more people in, as it would fit the theme for tales. If a female applies to counter part you, then I will. Even if interest doesn't come, this is the internet, and system gamers are sometimes more flaky then those who freeform. Someone will likely drop, and you'll be first on my list to contact if they do. ;)

Sounds good, can't go wrong with the human. By the way, I forgot to mention this as most had been told in PMs, but make sure to set the sheet up plot hooks if you will. I'll edit and add that to the rules now. :)

"So, as a big fan of the Tales Series, I know a lot of the common elements. I'm curious as to how you plan to fit them into Pathfinder. I mean, little things like renaming CLW Potions Apple Gummis (or potions in general become gummis), to bigger things like the summons (Ifrit, Gnome, Undine, Sylph, Celsius, Volt, Maxwell, etc.)."

"Also, the Sorcerer's Ring is usually a major plot point, obviously for video game reasons, but I bet it could be recreated as a magic item. Just curious as to what will make the game more like a Tales game?"

Admittedly I have yet to pin every change down. The potions are easy to fix, they simply become gels. That even works for oils too, if you think about not every gel being quite as solid.

Fortunately for me, I've already replicated The Tales Games on 3.5 once before, just never on pathfinder. Gels, Summons and Sorcerer's ring are the easiest parts to deal with for me. Saying I don't have a lot of rejection to home brewed items, which anyone in this game can read my first post and know I make custom magic items. My issues have always come in the core power outage of the game, like Capacity cores, EXspheres, and Bhodi Blastia. I think I've found a way to do it though. :D

Hey, I'd like to apply for the last female slot if it's still open. I've got an idea for a character that I think would be fun.

An elf from a wilder part of the world using arcane might to amplify her martial ability. Though I'd like to request two spells from the 3.5 spell compendium.

spells:
Blades of Fire- 1st level, swift, for 1 rnd your melee attacks deal +1d8 fire damage
Wraith Strike- 2nd level, swift, for 1 round your melee attacks are touch attacks

The core/blastia only becomes hard if people want to try and integrate arts into the system. I literally had make all martial classes martial adepts because of this when my group at home wanted to use 'demon fang' and stuff. I'm hoping to avoid that confusion here. As far as summoners go, the summon monster spell really puts some great ideas for how to handle a summon spirit in the game. Obviously their examples don't work, but with slight tweaking it's easy to make a spell/item/whatever that calls such a being from one of the 'otherworlds' I have listed.

I set up the cosmology with this in mind, as the spirits like Rem, Shadow, and Sylph really did play a big part, even if they weren't being summoned. Naturally details about the spirits aren't common knowledge, so only characters with the proper knowledge checks will know much. Putting in that Raine or Jade feel that the tales character's always had, where their knowledge really came into play. That mixed with the fact that the tales characters always had to encounter the spirit for it's blessing before  they could properly summon it helps. Oh, and for a Sheena type we could always use the summoner class. It really kinda fits how she was.

If you ever need a bard, shoot me a line, okay? They're my specialty.
I'll be sure to message you if we are in need of one. Currently we're looking only for a female role, preferably a mage or the like.

That could work out, I'll need to talk more in depth with you about that as I've yet to fully detail much of the world aside from Kimaria and Arcadia. The spells I'll need to look over, but most things from the spell compendium were pathfinder worthy, so I don't think it will too much of a problem.

Pathfinder is different then 3.5 in some regards, it's been highly streamlined. PM me with the basic levels you want to take, and I'll mainly need to speak with you about what wild area you plan to come from. That won't affect much statistically, so we can begin character building while we work on it. Check This for more specific details on the pathfinder system. Classes have been modified, as well as feats and some of the combat rules.

And that means you're in Ryuka, lets work on a character for you as well. :D

"Cool, I often avoid getting too familiar with other peoples' characters at the beginning, so, what are the basics of what we've got in the game? I'd be interested in playing a Summoner if the mechanics were not too complicated for both myself and Black Howling. I don't want to make the character too over-complex and make it hard for the game to get rolling. I'll skim through things and maybe build two characters (with the Summoner on backburner), and decide exactly want I want to run after I hear what people have already done."
