The Order of Mercenaries Elune(Pathfinder Seeker Thread.)
« on: May 25, 2011, 03:49:46 PM »
Let's see if I have it in me to run THREE pathfinder games at once. I think I can, since the other two have gotten bogged down by missing players. Games run so slow on elliquiy anyway, so posting on a regular basis should be a pinch easy. Now for the starting rules!

- Level 6 starting.
- 4d6 standard.
- 4 players with a equal sex ratio. 2 boys 2 girls.
- 20k starting gold.
- Traits are enabled.
- If you want to play a special race or something custom made, just yell at me. Pathfinder has squat when it comes to a choice of races, and there should always be a healthy mix of catfolk or something weird thrown in there. A party of 4 humans/elves is just boring. Also things like cursed into being a different race, or cursed clothes/armor is always acceptable. Since naughty curses are always fun for everyone involved.
- This is going to be a Urban Game, so prepare for it.

The general plot layout, is that you are a merc group in a big ass city. With the city being so massive the government cannot control all of it by itself. Hence the need for groups such as yours to beat down the peasants and do some raids on various thief guilds and various illegal cults. That or you could join the seedy underbelly and do some anarchy yourselves, either way is just fine with me.

This is going to be a game where the DM doesn't have a central plot mechanic. It is going to be primarily up to the players to figure out what they want to do and how to do it. Want to raid a warehouse controlled by a minor thieves guild? Go right ahead! Want to join up with that self same thieves guild and do some ransacking of rich merchant homes? Go right ahead! Want to set up your own brothel/casino? Go right ahead!

You'll get your own headquarters free of charge, since you've been in operation for a year or so already. You'll just need to come to a consensus over what type of lair you want. A house, a underground lair, a tower, etc etc.

I'd be interested in joining an open-ended Pathfinder RP.  I will start plotting out the details of the character, but off the top of my head I'm thinking of going Wizard -> Ranger -> Arcane Archer.  The prospect of branching out from the standard races is quite intriguing to me; something I shall also be putting thought into.  ;D

I'd most certainly be interested in this kind of game! 

One question!  Will we be able to use content from the newly released Ultimate Magic?  I was thinking about playing an alchemist, and they got some truly interesting additions that might be fun to screw around with.

Anything in there, besides the chance for some naughty custom races and other fun.

As for race, I was thinking of the Slyth, an Ooze-heritage race, Page 18 the Forgotten Realms - Underdark book.  I can send you the details if you approve and don't have access to it already!

Oozes are not sexy!

Also you'll need to get into specifics about this new content. Need to make sure you aren't using some trick to annoy the DM.

I don't think there's anything gamebreaking in Ultimate Magic.  From what I've heard it's rather lackluster for most of the other classes, but Alchemists got some interesting flavory abilities, feats, and archetypes.  Things like alchemically-grown wings, tentacles, and simulacrums!

I wasn't exactly aiming for sexy.  From the outset this sounded like an open-ended mercenary game, unless I'm mistaken?

This is elliquiy, I'd expect some naughty going on and plenty of it in my games.

I've stumbled across an idea that I wanted to run by you.  Would it be acceptable to play a Neko-esque character that came to be when a botched spell caused the wizard to fuze with his familiar, adopting several traits of the creature?

Would I have to take part in any hypothetical naughtiness?  I'm not talking about raining on anyone's parade in or out of character, but it was the premise that drew me initially, not the prospect of sex.

I always try to make my games have a healthy dose of naughty in them, so building your character to only fulfill half of the games content would be a massive dis-service.

As long as you find a picture of how adorable he is. I'll figure out some racial boost that come out as LA+0.

I'm not saying that I want to be a lackluster participant.  This being a band of mercenaries, I'm certain I could find other ways for my character to spend his time while the others are enjoying carnal pleasures.

I have yet to even see the stats for this race. It just rubs me the wrong way to have a player in a naughty D&D game not participate in the naughty.

Here's what I've narrowed it down to thus far.  I'm having a bit of trouble finding non-feline nekos that aren't full anthros while still falling under the list of core Wizard familiars.

Technically a kitsune Neko, which is not a core familiar option, but I felt it couldn't hurt to try. ;)

Let me know if you have any preferences or if there are any that are not viable.  I could easily go with any of them and might end up leaving it for a 1d4 to decide for me.




After further deliberation, I decided that the following is the most wizardly looking of the bunch and the one who looks like a best fit for a mercenary group.

Works for me. For stats, just use the elf stats for your catboy race. That should work well enough for your wizardly needs.

Think I got my two male slots covered. I usually don't have this problem, since it is usually girls that come in first.

should I put down a concept, or wait for the other people's approval? I ask as I am getting off soon and mildly want to know if I should start working on one or if I have no chance at being let in.

I'm going to wait and see if any girls want to join or not. So you might as well wait as well.

I'd be interested in joining, if you don't mind me playing cross-gender (I pretty much always play female chars anyway).

Unsure what type of character I'd play, but I'm thinking either some sort of faerie mage, or a melee-type catgirl.  Depends on what everyone else is playing, I guess.  Is this a homebrew world, or are you going off of a published setting?

Oh ho! I have a perfect idea for a class as detailed in the pathfinder srd. A Dragon Rider... Well assuming Nicci allows it.
