Scourge of Worlds - A Pathfinder Adventure
« on: April 19, 2011, 02:16:22 PM »
Not quite. It uses pathfinder rules but is set in the world of Greyhawk. This adventure is based off of an independent "Find Your Fate" DVD of similar name. However the characters that partake are not the iconics from 3.5 but your characters. This adventure is for a group of four to five heroes of level 5. You will generate your ability scores using a 2d6+6 method and roll six times and you are issued standard gold for your level to spend as you seem fit.

I will point out immediately that this is a straight adventure and there will be no sexual encounters or nudity of any sort. This might not be what people are looking for but we shall see if one welcomes a change of pace from the norm that elliquiy is known for.



Hired by the temple of Pholtus within Greyhawk, your party has been sent to capture Barathion. A high ranking priest of their temple who has stolen a map from their vaults. It is unknown why he has stolen it as the map was never peered upon by the elders of the temple. One of you has a history with the good priest giving proper incentive to see him brought back alive. You eventually catch up with Barathion somewhere nearby Darkhaven.

Little do you realize that you are being drawn into something much bigger then you could possibly imagine...

Hihi

I am interested in this too  :-)

Are you going to be using the classes from the advanced players guide ?

I had an idea for a character which I thought would work well as an Inquisitor of Pholtus who was formally a wayward orphan child taken in by Barathion,  I think it could be interesting to have her deeply respect and feel she owes a lot to him which she probably does. She perhaps may even have insisted on being the one to bring him in because she fears for his safety, so she might struggle with her past and way of life a bit in bringing him in.

It could easily work as another class of course the concept I can make work easily with the standards.

Just what I was looking for--a Pathfinder game without the clutter of sex! 

I've been curious in trying out the Alchemist class for quite awhile now, and this seems like as good an opportunity as ever.  Perhaps he could even be the man who was good friends with the missing priest?  For the record, he wouldn't be the "Jekyll and Hyde" build, but a potion tosser.

I think it would be neat if most if not all of our characters where already acquainted it can be awkward sometimes if nobody knows one another.  I can easily think of reasons why my character would probably know others too, she could of been involved in the resolution of some issue or "adventured" with them before etc. 

I think she could easily be acquainted with an Alchemist too since she dabbles in the craft herself, maybe she might of learned or studied with them or she may just have traded with them in the past.  Perhaps there her go to person now for Alchemical supplies. 

Some of our characters could of course grown up together or around one another so we might be familiar that way hehe.

Senti ill be happy to help you if I can with your character, just poke me about it next time you see me on :)

I agree wholeheartedly!  One of the biggest brick walls for any online game like this is putting all the characters in their own isolated bubble without any clear reason to work together.  I think it'd be great if my Alchemist was acquainted with everyone in some way or another.  I'm still fleshing out the fluffy details (having basically finished the mechanical side of things), but he's definitely a bit of a wanderer.

Probably because he moonlights as a Snake Oil salesman, and often needs to get the heck out of Dodge when the pitchwork-wielding townsfolk come a-callin'!

Shihong, would you consider a partner in crime for your Snake Oil salesman? I was thinking about a bard, using the 'Street Performer' archetype. Someone to draw in and work the crowd, act as a shill, and then cover your retreat when it's time to get out of town by providing a distraction. In the meantime if a couple of purses get cut, well, they probably had it coming.

That would actually work perfectly!  Perfectly, because my Alchemist has Charisma as a dump stat and couldn't work the crowd to save his life--which he may very well have to do!

He makes the product, your character loosens the purse strings a bit to get the unwitting crowd on his side, and then they beat a hasty retreat before anyone gets wise!

Sounds great. I'm flipping through the rules, and leaning toward halfling as a race. I'll ping you back when I have more down. I'll probably need a review and some pointers from those with more Pathfinder experience, but I'll take an initial shot at it first.

That is assuming the concept seems workable to you, Hyena.

Still needs:
- equipment
- a picture

Shihong, if you're willing we could each chip in money toward a wagon and some horses for the traveling snake oil conman show. I'm thinking some kind of big gypsy caravan wagon, with room for the alchemist workbench inside, and maybe a small fold-out stage. It'll give Laughing Hyena something to blow up in the first encounter.

Also, if someone wants to join the operation, possibly as muscle, then it could be that Sabriel's character reaches out to the whole troupe at once when she's in need of help.

It would be neat if the group was already connected with one another, I can easily thing of reasons why my character would probably know such an outfit and even why she might be involved with them.  She might of perhaps offered "legal" support to them in the past and bailed them out of trouble, maybe she might of come to an agreement with them that she would help them with such things if they allow her to travel with her and ask no questions of her job nor speak of her. She would probably pass herself of as a simple barrister and follower of Pholtus who had decided to see the world and seek understanding of other cultures and spread the word.
 
 
I am sure it would be easy to think of reasons to create a little traveling troupe with the concept.

Excellent idea, Ebb!  I have about 200 leftover gold to pitch in for buying a proper wagon and a horse or two to pull it.  Assuming Laughing Hyena doesn't blow it up right out of the gate, it would make an excellent mobile base of operations once the adventure begins and we set off into the greater world.

I would also like to mention that my alchemist is not merely in this for gold (He ultimately ends up spending just about all of it making more potions), and actually does do his best to help those who are truly sick and in need of a cure of some sort.  I'll send you a message soon as to why this is Ebb, since as his long-time business partner I'd think he would have brought it up at least once.

It's just that he also has few qualms over conning a gullible drunkard out of his coin when all that ails him is sobriety and his nagging wife.

I figured that the people you be conning would likely not be undeserving of it or well could afford to pay for there lack of wisdom, I also suspected you may be putting some real cures and such out there also. My character could provide some services to draw people in also perhaps, she is skilled in some areas that would be useful and she has a leeching kit hehe.  She could always offer up free clean water too which may draw people in, although she might insist that you donate some of the profits to the church occasionally  ;)

So anyway this is my character so far she is pretty much done sheet wise I think, she has a bit of cash spare too, I might consider if there is anything else she needs but some spending money is always good to have.

I think having a bit of difference in our outlooks is good. Lucrece could serve as a good conscience for the group, pulling us back on the straight and narrow if Jojel strays a little too far over the line. I also think that healing services and fresh water would be excellent business opportunities.

Looking at your sheet, Sabriel, I had one question. And I'm a relative newcomer to Pathfinder, so possibly I'm off base. It looks like you've spent a lot less on equipment than I did. The only magic item I see is the Haversack (plus potions and such). What number did you use for starting gold? I used 10,500, which I got off of the SRD somewhere, I think, but I don't have it in front of me.

Really ? odd that is the number I used as well.

She has a few magical items, the bag, the quiver, and some items which are quite expensive (masterwork weapons, special armor). My math could be off but well if it is it will be that i have under spent which I can live with :P

I did list all the costs and use a calculator but I did sort of stop and come back to it so I might have made an error.

It's probably fine, then. I trust your calculator a lot more than I trust my quick eyeballing of the equipment list. The quiver didn't even jump out to me as a magic item. So no worries. Mostly I wanted to make sure that I hadn't picked a wrong number and gone grossly overboard or anything.

Shihong, I'll pitch in for the second horse, sure. And I call dibs on the top bunk. Are you human, by the way?

Alchemists only really seem complicated from the outset.  They can either be a devastating brawler with mutagens, or a bomber who focuses on debilitating status effects.  Either way you have access to a number of wizard-like spells in the form of extracts, which can eventually be given to others with the right discovery for some pretty great combos.  Their focus is slightly more narrow than a wizard, but they're great at controlling the battlefield and supporting the party both in and out of battle.

Background

Grace Orea is the daughter of a shamed general which took disciplinary measures on his own troups too far. Far enough that they themselves disposed of him, something their own king agreed with.  His tactics were perfect, his lack of understanding of morale however was his downfall.

His legacy included daughters, one of which already married well before the family name of Orea fell leaving Grace in a situation none would envy. Instead of bowing to the shame her family represented Grace decided that her father was correct and it was a sign of weakness of the army for being needy of being fathered for small things they should know, and decided to try and prove her strange theory in practice... by becoming a warrior herself.

What resources her family had left she used to commission armor made of mithril. Then Grace saw to her training in the only way she believed ... by going through the books her father wrote on warfare.

It soon became obvious her father had an affection for those that were fully armored using a great sword held in both hands and often preached about tactics that only such a warrior could manage. Although women had been warriors before most choose the bow or weapons of speed, but something about using a great sword had a pride and magnificence that to her overshadowed everything.

Some in his army that were sympathetic to her situation choose to train her as best they could. She was naturally fast and had superb balance, that helped. More importantly she was determined to be great, that was better.

She demanded her trainers push her as hard as possible, they did.  Even practicing with wooden sword made welts as common as sneezes.... day after day in the war camp that ironically flourished green that had birds chirping love songs, Grace's skill in tactics and swordplay began to show signs of matching her drive....

And I think of Duyven as a 'Super-Bartender' than 'Snake-Oil' type.

A cleric would certainly be a great boon for just about any party, and if you're still set on being a dwarf I can't think of a better class for it!

And Senti mentioned a druid a little while back, but I'm not sure if she's still interested. Senti?

From my limited experience, fighter isn't that bad of a class to double up on. Most problems are fairly amenable to hitting them with sharp objects.

Also right now we don't have a real rogue; my bard has some of the skills, but is going to be useless for traps and such.

Lucrece Bennett

http://plothook.net/RPG/profiler/view.php?id=8505


Basic Background

Life for Lucrece Bennett as she would come to be called did not start out easy nor privileged she was born an illegitimate child, brought into a family of dark and wayward ways she was unwanted and raised only so that she might one day serve. Her mother had fallen in with and was a part of a band of roguish ne'er-do-wells who took to using children in there gang, raising them to serve as spies and distractions occasionally even involving them with thefts.

Lucrece was barely six years old when her life took the change, the gang had become increasingly careless and too big for it's boots, its leader was no longer content with petty crimes and wanted more power and control.

This was to his downfall and led to the capture of the gang, the local law and nobles decided that an example was to be made of them and all who a part of the gang where to be punished or executed for the crimes.

The local church of Pholtus was alarmed by the measures that where to be taken, and sought to intervene and control matters. It was eventually agreed that the orphans of the gang would be taken in by the church and that an appropriate example could be made from those responsible, Bennett was one of the youngest of the orphans and she found a home with the priests and priestesses of Pholtus. 

Most of the other orphans where found homes or where sent to live elsewhere, but Bennett was one of a chosen few to be inducted into the orders lifestyle and raised by it's code.  She was raised by many but none seamed more fatherly or motherly to her than the priest Barathion, he had personally suggested that she remain with the order and be raised by them.

He played a pivotal role in raising and teaching her and laid the path for adult life, when she matured Lucrece begun to believe she would serve in the order just like the priestesses did but others had other plans.

For they had already foreseen and chosen the path Bennett and a few of the other orphans would walk, there service to Pholtus was of a different degree. Soon the Lucrece begun to meet and be introduced to members of the order she had not seen or heard of before and her lessons took a different turn, at first Lucrece was sad and disappointed that she would not be a Priestess she did not understand.  But in time it became a driving goal for her and her prayers to Pholtus seamed to take on more meaning than they ever had before, she had never known before but it was because she lacked the purpose and now she had found her call.

It turned out that Lucrece found the task she was given a rewarding and satisfying one, she could serve the order and Pholtus after all as she was meant to do. She learned about law and order and the teachings of Pholtus , she served as a legal aide and barrister and became quite skilled in interrogating and bringing in witnesses and criminals. She still continued to meet and speak with Barathion until the day when her services parted them and he stopped responding to her letters, she took heart in her duty and spreading the word of Pholtus and hunting those who where a threat to the faith and people. 

-----

Thought id write up a bit of her basic background I can easily add to it or change anything if it works better for the story :)  I thought id just keep it to the basics for now and sort of not go into great detail because I wanted make sure I could still fit her knowing others in there.

Jojel Fairhaven

http://plothook.net/RPG/profiler/view.php?id=8506

Basic Background

Jojel was born the sixth of nine children to a very wealthy halfing family. His father was the equivalent of a country squire, needing to do little more than collect the proceeds from his tenant farmers and render the appropriate percentages to the local (human) Baron. Jojel spent his childhood, which lasted long past the age when most halfings would be seeking an honest profession, carousing, singing traditional halfing songs, and spending his family's money. His parents indulged him and his siblings, most of whom were equally worthless to society.

Sadly, four years ago tragedy struck the Fairhaven clan as both of his parents were killed during a raid by a tribe of hobgoblins who had struck well into civilized lands, fleeing devastation in their homeland. Though the humanoids were quickly dealt with by adventurers, it was little consolation to those who had died. Jojel's eldest brother Hapton assumed leadership of the family and ownership of the estate. His first act was to cut off all of the other adult children, giving them a small purse of gold and sending them out into the world to stand on their own feet.

Jojel did not take well to the sudden responsibility, quickly spending his inheritance to the point where he was left destitute on the streets of the city. Eventually he found a way to capitalize on his natural talents, spinning stories and cutting purses to make a living. His career of petty thievery didn't take off, however, until he met Jeremiah Oz, the alchemist. The man was talented and intelligent, but was having a hard time turning his considerable skill into coin. The two were a natural fit; Jojel's easygoing nature and silver tongue complimented the human's more serious side. Jojel took upon himself the roles of barker, shill, wagon driver, illusionist and emergency escape artist tactician.

His needs are few, but despite this he has a great deal of trouble holding onto a coin for long. Jojel has an unfortunate taste for the finer things in life from his youth. If he buys wine, it is the best available. If he commissions a new suit of clothes it must be made from the most expensive silk, and if it becomes stained it might be easier to discard it and get a new one. These tendencies, coupled with the cost of raw materials for Jeremiah's work, mean that the pair is often short on funds despite their considerable talents.

=====================

I'm happy to make changes in order to conform with the group. Particularly, Shihong, if any of this doesn't match your conception of Jeremiah. We should also decide if Grace is part of our troupe, or if she's hired separately by Lucrece.

I really like both Grace's and Lucrece's writeups, by the way.

I have put Kate's sheet on my sheet account thingy and am linking it bellow for her, If there is any errors or anything you want added/edited let me know.

http://plothook.net/RPG/profiler/view.php?id=8528

I also had some ideas for how Kate's character may know be acquainted with the group, perhaps she is a soldier my character trusts and has dealings with in the past.  Being that she seams to have no money  :P maybe Bennett might be supporting her and well perhaps paying for her services.  I think it make sense that my character would have such a contact since she likely had to call on soldiers and guards a lot to help in making arrests.  That would certainly make things easier for the group dynamic perhaps ?

I be perfectly willing to buy her some things from my remains of unspent money too, perhaps a horse and a sword  :P

I am not sure about Senti btw, she was interested I know that and she wanted my help making a character but I haven't spoke to her in a few days. I expect she is busy with easter holidays I am sure she would let you know however if she had lost interest. 

I hope that helps.

@Kate: Perfectly, as long as its reasonable and not abusive. I just don't like the idea of a fighter having no weapon and 20 gold or so is not a steep price. Not to mention you won't have an excuse when the only thing that isn't broken is the armor. ^_^



Well I know that many folks do lose interest and drop out when one lingers for too long or one hits a repeating snag. This is common in a forum RPs downfall.

I've got extra cash as well, if it would help to outfit Kate's character. Perhaps she's getting outfitted out of a fund made up of 'voluntary tithing' to the church, which Sabriel's character 'encouraged' us to pay after she helped get us out of a recent scrape?

It works better for me character-wise if I'm broke at the start anyway. So if it would help to spend 500gp on a horse or other mundane equipment, you're welcome to it.

I do agree that "Dr. Oz's Traveling Medicinal and Oratorical Showcase" (name subject to review) should have done some odd jobs for the Church in the past, and that Bennett has been our point of contact. We should come off as basically trustworthy and mostly competent, though it's probably wise to at least keep an eye on Jojel when there are valuables around.

how is this for an idea (anyone can veto it).

the "group" existed before I did, and you all paid for my services in advance (because in short you want me to defend protect whatever you guys want to do - throw myself into whatever it is that is between you lot and harms way even if its not in her own best interests.

So the first "chapter" she is effectively the henchmen for all of you.

Or

She skips any rights to whatever loads of treasure everyone deems appropraite
( and its evenly broken up between whoever else exists)... before we are all on par again
(likely she finds her own reasons for tagging along as an equal in monetary matters)

That way as a group we all start with the right amount of wealth - unevenly distributed, but it would even up after chapter 1 (figuratively speaking)

I think if my character provided you with money she would not expect it back, other than perhaps in service or a donation to the Church.  She is not amazingly interested in wealth other than in the fact it provides some of the means to do her duty.

As for her opinion of the operation of the sales and such I think she would turn a blind eye to most of it providing it did not harm anyone or rob them of money they could not afford to part with. So long as there selling something of course and not just thieving from people, she would probably try to discourage them taking advantage of some people and maybe try suggest that more profit could be had in selling legitimate cures/services etc.  On the whole though her opinion would be tolerant of it so long as it did not harm anyone or interfere with her own work and provided good cover and means to travel.  I don't think she would perceive them as bad people either she does not expect everyone to be perfect or honest all the time.

I think Kate's character being sort of tithed by the church may be a good idea I can certainly see my character associating with a soldier as I said.

Grace Orea



Background

Grace Orea is the daughter of a shamed general which took disciplinary measures on his own troups too far. Far enough that they themselves disposed of him, something their own king agreed with.  His tactics were perfect, his lack of understanding of morale however was his downfall.

His legacy included daughters, one of which already married well before the family name of Orea fell leaving Grace in a situation none would envy. Instead of bowing to the shame her family represented Grace decided that her father was correct and it was a sign of weakness of the army for being needy of being fathered for small things they should know, and decided to try and prove her strange theory in practice... by becoming a warrior herself.

What resources her family had left she used to commission armor made of mithril. Then Grace saw to her training in the only way she believed ... by going through the books her father wrote on warfare.

It soon became obvious her father had an affection for those that were fully armored using a great sword held in both hands and often preached about tactics that only such a warrior could manage. Although women had been warriors before most choose the bow or weapons of speed, but something about using a great sword had a pride and magnificence that to her overshadowed everything.

Some in his army that were sympathetic to her situation choose to train her as best they could. She was naturally fast and had superb balance, that helped. More importantly she was determined to be great, that was better.

She demanded her trainers push her as hard as possible, they did.  Even practicing with wooden sword made welts as common as sneezes.... day after day in the war camp that ironically flourished green that had birds chirping love songs, Grace's skill in tactics and swordplay began to show signs of matching her drive....

Hmm could of sworn he mentioned playing a rogue after his other two ideas got shot down for being taken already. ^^;; I'll double check if so and see what he is doing if he is even planning to still join here.

Edit: Ah I think he was asking if a thief or healer would be better, but never answered back specifically if any would be picked by him. ^^;;

Well there is four of us so far as I remember that have sort of made characters specifically for the game with Callie suggesting some along the way too, so there is one or two more spots to be had depending if Laughing is open to have six players originally I know he said he wanted five but I remember some talk of that too.

So far (I think) we have a Alchemist,Bard,Fighter and Inquisitor 

A rogue would be useful too, I think the would fit in well with the group too someone who could make and disarm traps might fit in well maybe be more a part of the bounty hunting side of things, perhaps serving as a snitch and undercover type gathering information scouting etc.   

I am happy to help more if I can and well talk more about how characters might know each other previously etc :)

Well I wouldn't want to play the bad girl thief type... you know... more so the one that feels as though "what's yours is mine" and believes that the world is open to anyone who might want to explore. So what the door was locked and it was trapped, that doesn't mean anything when things are meant to be shared among people whether it might be a place to live or some item she might 'require'. It is not breaking and entering if you truly believe you are allowed to enter.  O:)

Hehe

Yeah that sounds good.

I think that would fit well with my own characters views too, since she would not believe herself restricted by such rules, she believes in laws and such but well has her own code of ethics which is above them and is strongly tied to her religion and not the laws of local governments etc although she will respect them and uphold them even so long as they don't interfere with her duty. For example, if someone she is after for some crime was hiding inside a building, given no other option she might be willing to break into the place to do her job although she would consider it simply going where she was needed. After doing such however she probably explain why she had no other option and perhaps attempt to make amends for the act and any damage even if it was caused by the other party. Basically she thinks of herself as an agent of law and the faith and well as such she is permitted to take certain methods and measures when there necessary.

Exactly! Sept my character would avoid getting caught, and deny absolutely that she broke in, insisting that the door was open (despite the numerous locks she might of picked or traps disabled) and see no wrong or reason to justify her actions. She would be so bold to break into a friend's home and be found sleeping on their bed "cause there was no where else to sleep" and probably would wave them away innocently and turn over to her side and fall back asleep. ^^;; Pretty much if she ever got in trouble with the law, she would innocently try swatting them away as if she did nothing wrong in a rather cute and a bit playful manor. If she stole something, she was justify her way into doing it. Pretty much she would be playing stupid even though you know full well if you have a clue about her that she is very clever. XD

He I normally work the other way around myself if I use a picture at all, although I can sometimes find myself inspired to create a concept for a picture.

I had several pictures I found for my character a few I thought I could use together but this one I thought was the best id found so far, it captured a few elements of her I felt and well the sort seaming luminescence around her fitted too. Since she like many of the Pholtus faith tends to wander around with some magical light emitting about her, her favored source is one of her magical items I purchased which is basically a ioun stone that simply emits light.  A gift given to her in her childhood (Probably by the man we are sent to find :P ) her first magical treasure and a comfort of her faith.



These are the others I thought inspiring and matching

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide

Maybe she could be one of the children orphans I mentioned in my background but maybe she wound up in the care of the Fae/Fey somehow instead, there is a nifty little trait for that being raised by magical creatures I mean.

I would agree with Kate also my preference would be for the third one, seams roguish and well I like the drawings style.

I just feel a picture really does a good job emphasizing a character. Sure you "Can't judge a book by its cover" but at the same time you can tell some things about them and there should be reasonable expectations their behaviors should match their appearance to some degree. It can really inspire to some things you might not otherwise imagine. In the end, I do tend to have some general idea and I just like the picture to more focus in on the idea and give a better shape upon how the character is.

Hmm 3rd picture it is then. Traits I really need to check out myself. Not use to them being included (not that I'm an expert on system RPs to have lots of experience) so I'll probably give it a nice look over. I have made a rogue before though I was more so a throwing weapon rogue, while this time I'll be the good old 'brawler' type of sorts, getting into the action close and personal with a nice rogue touch of finesse behind her. ^^

Thanks! Was a little curious as to the trait that adopted children might gain from a magical creature you mentioned before... Didn't notice it when scanning through before. ^^;;

Hmm must say its harder to pick out a weapon. Was going for a short sword, but its stats and all seem kinda lack luster, might as well have a long sword and just get over-weight weapon (well if the gm allows it from 3.5 ^^;; ) since feat wise I'm actually pretty good with being human. Hmm I need a slashy-stabby-esque kind of weapon to feel like a happy rogue... just not sure what to pick. ^^

Edit: Wow... http://www.d20pfsrd.com/equipment---final/weapons/weapon-descriptions/sabre-sawtooth yeash that actually seems very good for a rogue to have. >.< 1d8 with 19-20/x2 and with exotic it counts as a light weapon ^^;;

Here are is a big list of traits Yorubi

http://www.d20pfsrd.com/traits

and the one I mentioned is "Magical Knack"

Quote
Magical Knack


You were raised, either wholly or in part, by a magical creature, either after it found you abandoned in the woods or because your parents often left you in the care of a magical minion. This constant exposure to magic has made its mysteries easy for you to understand, even when you turn your mind to other devotions and tasks.

Benefit: Pick a class when you gain this trait—your caster level in that class gains a +2 trait bonus as long as this bonus doesn’t increase your caster level higher than your current Hit Dice.

Ive taken it before even when I intended never to multi class  :P

Anyways so far here is my character so far. Keep in mind she isn't complete yet, its probably going to be about what you see there.
Tailee (Tai/Tay)

As a side note... for some reason my strength modifier hates me and its not working... won't let me modify it either so I'll need to add +3 to the misc tab for str skills or something. >.<

Working anyways on weapons and the likes right now to get her nice and ready to go for combat. :) Hmm to get +2 AC (Amulet + Ring) or just go for +2 Strength for more hit...  *ponders*

Edit: RReactionary only made sense since she could find herself in trouble and would react quickly from it. Hmm still debating to go Dirty Fighting since its useful and she probably would logically come to the conclusion to take what she can get if its being offered (in her mind at least) though I still might look through more for traits :) Armor expert seems good (and I can see logically that she would be comfortable in her armor and not have the penalty after being use to it for so long on her own) but eh I still think there are better matching traits.

I had an idea for your character.

How about making your dex your hightest state - and intellegence your second highest... then taking weaponfinesse (which uses your dex bonus to determine chances to hit not your strength - if you using light weapons)
choose rapiers - which have a higher chance of criticals - take improved critical later or any feats that extend critical chances...

making you lighter - less weighty - large chance of hurting things via criticals (some high damaging effects with weapon enchantments only happen during criticals)... (which i think rogues can pull off more often anyway).

but heaps of skill points (due to larger intellegence), and dex based skills (eg traps etc) your super good at (due to high dex)... and you still have more skill points left over.

No need to waste a feat learning rapiers as you as being a rouge already have that (no need to take exoitc weapon proficiency for them - or if you like exotic weapons you can use that for things like reapting crossbows or a handcrossbow or something else roguey

Eh I like the idea of a bruiser-esque kinda rogue. With the stats I rolled, getting 14 int really made it that much more in my favor that she would be able to be better at combat. The rapier can't be used according to this for both hands http://www.d20pfsrd.com/equipment---final/weapons/weapon-descriptions/rapier and even if it could, I still would need to take a feat to actually use it (overweight weapons or what not to lower the penalty for using a heavier weapon in offhand). Unless I use a light weapon in off hand, it just wouldn't work to use rapier as a weapon choice in terms of getting an extra feat. While I could get weapon finesse as a rogue talent, I would be cutting out of either weapon training (+1 attack is good considering lower attack rate I feel) or Resilency, which is pretty much +5 HP to my character if I drop below 0 once a day, which considering how I'll be up close and my HP rolls were anything but amazing, I think will be very helpful in more dangerous fights. As a side note, I noticed I forgot the -2 penalty on my weapons thanks haha ^^;;

The Sabre, sawtooth actually give with exotic weapon training the ability to use them and count them as Light weapons, thus lower the penalty to -2 instead of -4. While it has a little less crit chance then rapier, it has up to a d8 roll which I think more then makes up for it. Strength just will boost my characters damage up a lot more and with my dice rolls, it just made sense to me to go with higher strength (started 5 and +2 racial +1 level, it actually was my second highest dice roll not my highest) and skip on the feat for the sake of providing more bang for my buck when I do hit and helping to take out things faster since I'm a rather fragile melee character.

My character still will have pretty high dex in the end. If the game did go on so long, she would probably grab 2 more dex for greater two weapon which would give her +1 more boost. She will still be very good at traps but she will also be good in combat, hopefully having enough bang in her to take out things before they can strike her back, which will make up for her more fragile nature.  Int wise, 14 seems like a great number as the +2 basically gets me enough for 2 more skills, which I have pretty well covered. If I was to take the second highest value, I'd only have 15 int which would mean I would have to invest +1 from my level in int to get the next higher value for additional skills which i believe would only come after level 4. Investing +2 racial to int just didn't seem like a great thing to do. The only real skill I could see using it for is Use Magic Device, which I don't think I'll have any use for at all unless this went into a higher level game. ^^;;

Haha, trust me though, Rapier was one of the weapons in my mind until I saw the new Sabre, Sawtooth weapon. Must be from a recent pathfinder book cause I don't remember it before. I saw the weapon and what it did in terms of damage/crit and I went (ooo, that looks pretty good) then clicked on it and my jaw dropped seeing just how much better it was. Counting as a light weapon with exotic proficiency? Sign me up!  ;D

I do wonder though how long term of an RP this will be. If it lasts long enough I can't wait to get improved crit/twf and some more fancy rogue feats that can give me even more feats. XD I just hope if we do get plenty of more levels, I don't find myself rolling only 2s and 3s for my HP again. XP

Light I think is more so for sexual encounters that might be on the more innocent side and likely not rampant through the RP. Given no sexual content at all, I would say that non-adult could work or if your concerned light could fit (section is locked). Really though, unless your going for some insanely crazy deaths (not me please!) then I would say you shouldn't really have to worry about it.

Edit: Durr we already did that. *sighs and shakes her head* I'm so useless today i swear.

Edit Edit: My roll... Really... cause I'm all disoriented it decides to grace me with an amazing roll? >.< lol Well I'm going to maybe take a nap and hopefully come back with a clearer head so I don't have to hold people up. At least its more so opening posts right now. ^^;;

Init: 20+5 = 25

Glad you guys liked the first post I made. Took me a while to figure it out and since I had to translate the NPCs into Pathfinder rules this proved very time consuming. I'm glad to see my efforts were not in vain. :-)

Well my nap is done and I still feel a lil bit out of it, but at the same time motivated! Woot going to work on a post! ^^

Edit: As a side note... woot for the alchemist having a convenient wagon for the carefree rogue to hitch a ride on and nap on. XD

Edit Edit: And a posted. What better reason to go on such a quest for a fey raised child then out of boredom and the ability to hitch a ride on the alchemists wagon when he isn't looking? The RP just started and I'm already loving the personality I have behind Tailee. XD

Great start, everyone.

LH: Do you want to keep this thread open for OOC chatter, or do a separate one? Or just do OOC chatter in spoiler boxes in the posts? I'm fine any way you decide.

Yorubi: I'm fine with our having overlooked the stowaway until now. It's not entirely realistic, but it'll be dramatic to have her appear in the middle of our first battle.

Well talking with Shihong pretty much he did say its fine though he probably ended up noticing her. Basically lets just say she gave a rather sweet look and slung around a few words about poor her and needing a ride and all and got him to give in. :) In terms of everyone else, its up to you if you know that he found her or if you found her yourself. ^^

I did wonder if we was supposed to see the druid which is why when I mentioned them I tried to skirt the issue, I did not want to ignore Kate's mention of it thougth :P

Anyway thats not quite why I was posting in the OOC

I was curious at all if it would be correct to hazard a guess at what type of creature this could be, since well that could influence my characters actions.  But then I would not wish to assume anything since well I might be a bit more apt than my character at guessing monsters base nature :P

The only reason I ask is because well I figure it might call for a use of her "Bane" ability but well she have to realize it's base nature to do that.

Well its only a relevant thing to her at present because if she can guess at its nature she can better fight it with her bane ability, bane is not a very useful ability unless applied to the proper targets of course  :P

Of course given the situation and the danger of perhaps the goals of the mission being compromised she probably be more willing to just hope it was a particular type of creature.

If it looks like it's an artificial being without internal organs, then it's a fairly safe bet that sneak attack damage does not apply.

Pretty much lol ^^;; Well reading it up, pathfinder made it so sneak attack works on most things no (excluding some exceptions) and elemental is one of those things it pretty much says is likely immune haha. ^^;; Sneak attacks work off weak points though rather internal organs though from what I read so many creatures can actually be hurt by it :)

Sneak Attack (Pathfinder SRD) if your curious and want to see. ^^

Only reason I know is cause I checked it out and know in DDO those damn undead that seem everywhere don't work with sneak attack. T.T

Oh god, I just looked up the new abilities for the Alchemist in Ultimate Magic.

It...almost makes me wish I was playing a total lunatic instead of a good guy!

Of particular note...

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Alchemical Zombie (Su): The alchemist gains the ability to animate a relatively complete corpse as an alchemy-powered zombie. This process takes 1 hour and costs 100 gp in alchemical reagents per HD of the corpse being animated; the dead creature gains the zombie template. Zombies that are created in this manner count as undead created by animate dead for the purposes of determining how many undead the alchemist can control. An alchemist must be at least 8th level before selecting this discovery. The created zombie is a creature, not a supernatural effect.

Doppelganger Simulacrum (Su): The alchemist learns how to create a soulless duplicate of his body, into which he can project his consciousness. As a full-round action, he may shift his consciousness from his current body to any one of his available doppelganger simulacra, which must be on the same plane as the alchemist. If killed in a simulacrum, he transfers to his own body automatically; if killed in his own body, he is dead. Unused simulacra (including his abandoned original body) appear to be lifeless corpses, though they do not decay. Creating a duplicate costs 1,000 gp in alchemical materials and requires 1 week to grow. An alchemist must be at least 10th level and must have the alchemical simulacrum discovery before selecting this discovery. The created simulacrum is a creature, not a supernatural effect.

Mummification (Ex): The alchemist has mastered preserving flesh and applied this knowledge to his own body, turning himself into an undeadlike creature. After learning this discovery, the alchemist must perform a 30-day regimen of a special diet, rigorous exercise, and drinking a mildly poisonous alchemical tea. At the end of this regimen, he falls unconscious for 24 hours, then awakens as a “living mummy.” The alchemist’s type does not change, but he becomes immune to cold, nonlethal damage, paralysis, and sleep. An alchemist must be at least 10th level and must have the preserve organs discovery before selecting this discovery.

Plague Bomb (Su)*: The effects of the smoke created by an alchemist’s bomb duplicates the effects of contagion instead of fog cloud, filling an area equal to twice the bomb’s splash area for 1 round per level. An alchemist must be at least 8th level and must have the smoke bomb discovery before selecting this discovery.

Preserve Organs (Ex): The alchemist learns how to preserve and protect his vital organs, reducing the chance of a mortal wound. When a critical hit or sneak attack is scored on the alchemist, there is a 25% chance that the critical hit or sneak attack is negated and damage is instead rolled normally. This does not stack with similar abilities that negate critical hits and sneak attacks (such as fortification armor). An alchemist can take this discovery up to three times; the effects stack, increasing this chance to 50% and then 75%.

Tentacle (Ex): The alchemist gains a prehensile, arm-length tentacle on his body. The tentacle is fully under his control and cannot be concealed except with magic or bulky clothing. The tentacle does not give the alchemist any extra attacks or actions per round, though he can use it to make a tentacle attack (1d4 damage for a Medium alchemist, 1d3 damage for a Small one) with the grab ability. The tentacle can manipulate or hold items as well as the alchemist’s original arms can (for example, allowing the alchemist to use one hand to wield a weapon, the tentacle to hold a potion, and the third hand to throw a bomb). Unlike an arm, the tentacle has no magic item slots.

Vestigial Arm (Ex): The alchemist gains a new arm (left or right) on his torso. The arm is fully under his control and cannot be concealed except with magic or bulky clothing. The arm does not give the alchemist any extra attacks or actions per round, though the arm can wield a weapon and make attacks as part of the alchemist’s attack routine (using two-weapon fighting). The arm can manipulate or hold items as well as the alchemist’s original arms (for example, allowing the alchemist to use one hand to wield a weapon, another hand to hold a potion, and the third hand to throw a bomb). The arm has its own “hand” and “ring” magic item slots (though the alchemist can still only wear two rings and two hand magic items at a time). An alchemist may take this discovery up to two times.

Parasitic Twin (Ex): The alchemist’s vestigial limbs are part of a parasitic twin on his torso, consisting of a head, a torso, and two arms (from the vestigial limb discovery). Normally, the twin is mostly recessed within the alchemist’s body, with the visible arms acting like the vestigial arm discovery, though the alchemist can manifest or hide the twin as a standard action. The twin is helpless, fully subservient to the alchemist, and cannot be targeted or harmed. Once per day, if the alchemist succumbs to a mental effect that would make him unconscious, helpless, or not in control of his own actions (such as charm person, feeblemind, or hold person), he can reroll his saving throw; success means the twin absorbs the effect and the alchemist can ignore it. Using this ability sickens the alchemist for the duration of the absorbed effect (removing the effect from the twin ends the sickened condition), and he cannot use the twin’s limbs during that time, though passive effects (such as from rings worn on the vestigial limbs) continue normally. The alchemist must have selected the vestigial limb discovery twice before selecting this discovery.

I saw that as well!  Alchemists got all sorts of wonderful goodies to work with.

The other classes...not so much.  Bards got particularly shafted, though they did snag one hilarious ability:
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Effect: You silently mime building an invisible wall, flattening your hands along linear planes to indicate its location and orientation. This “wall” is only real for creatures that see you perform this masterpiece (Will negates); you and your allies may automatically fail your saves if you want to treat the wall as real (for example, if you want to use the wall as a bridge to cross a chasm). For creatures who believe the wall is real, it has hardness 8, 90 hit points, and a break DC of 30 (multiple believing creatures can attack the walls, breaking through it more quickly as if they were all attacking a real wall rather than each attacking separate mental constructs). This is an illusion (phantasm) effect. Because the wall is a mental image, it blocks incorporeal creatures that fail their saves (because they perceive it as a magical barrier that excludes them), though they can still go around the wall or through the floor or ceiling to bypass it. It does not affect objects or creatures immune to mental effects (which can result in situations like an archer firing through the wall but unable to physically cross it).

Guys do decide on what you wish to do with Barathion when ready to proceed with the story. I cannot post anything really until you guys decide on this. The basic choices to sum it up are basically either let him go or apprehend him. Nothing prevents a third option of course.

I say we join him.  If anything he's said is true, then it seems he had a damn good reason for the theft.  Letting him go would just be irresponsible, and apprehending him could possibly be disastrous.  Presumably he was going somewhere before getting attacked, so why not follow him?

I would make a decision myself but well... Tailee isn't exactly the type that would do that considering she is just going with the flow and somewhat just watching and observing them and providing some random aid. Heck, right now as far as the group is concerned, she probably would joke around a bit if she spotted a trap somewhere, likely saying something like "You sure you want to walk through there?" or "I don't know seems like that way can be quite painful." or something along those lines. No offense to anyone in the group, but she really has no attachment with anyone yet so she likely wouldn't be very direct about things and would even shrug it off if they didn't inquire about what she meant and continue on. ^^;;

I know... so bad... but hey, blame her parents for instilling such traits on her with strangers.  ;D

I mean she could steal from a group member, but even a girl like her wouldn't think of doing that to people who would easily notice just where it likely went.  ;D
