It's about time I run a group game on E!

Not far from Oak's Valley...

...Crimsonwing Manor, has been showing lights on moonless nights for nigh a fortnight. Since the appearance of activity in the old home of Baron Eric Fawkes; animals are being butchered, crops are starting to rot, and the river is running foul. Several villagers have dissappeared in the past two weeks; the blacksmith's son, a barmaid, the local priest, and the mayor's wife. The town has appealed for an investigation and aid in ending their stroke of misfortune...


The premise, obviously enough, is to figure what's wrong in the town and possible save it from horrific doom. The game world is already set up by myself, as this is to test a campaign I will be running as a Free RPG Day promotion. Though that beign said I've extended the campaign depending on how the party plays and fairs.

What I'm looking for:
- A 3 to 5 character party
- Regular Posting (once a day, nothing too demanding)
- Creative Thinkers, basically people to look for unorthodox uses of abilities and to solve puzzles by thinking outside of the box.

Character Generation:
-20 point buy
-Paizo material prefered (including current playtests), but willing and able to convert 3.5 stuff
-Starting at 3rd Level
-Traits allowed: 2
-Maximum Wealth (Class + 3000)

About the Campaign:
-Very Castlevania/Van Hellsing influnced. Traps, dungeon crawls, and fighting monsters will be the focus of the gameplay.
-Puzzles/Traps have multiple solutions. This challenges me as a gamemaster and let's the player ands and myself have freedom to experiment.
-I'm an experienced GM, but I'm not out to destroy you. I might not make things easy, but I'm not going to set you up to fail.
-Have fun...this is E! so I will remove my usual PG-13/R Rating I have on home campaigns. Though that being said, the focus of the game is to get the monsters, not to bed the monsters. Party members keep your flings to Pms. Hwever feel free to allude, use inuendo, or blatanty boast about your exploits. Gamewise though, most scenes of the carnal nature slow the game or distract other players, if not halting the game completely.

What I do to split the adventuring and naughty sections apart, is to just create separate threads for them, or have the players do it when they are getting it on. That way all of the off-adventuring fun happens at the same time the next day occurs and the adventuring begins anew.

I don't know quite yet what class I want to play, since level 3 is so boring and really limits build orders. I would like to try out a custom bunnygirl race, if the DM would allow.

Offline Genbu83Topic starter

There will be leveling up in the game. I just like to start small. Level 3 is a good "not quite rookie" level. Still threatened by small frys, but powerful enough to get the job done.

Let me see the race...if it's anything like shuriken nekogami's neko race...It  should be fine.

You're the DM, you can just invent the race. That and I'm thinking of going fighter bunnygirl then.

this has some potential i think... i have had a character i've always wanted to do more than a one shot with a half orc ranger

Offline Genbu83Topic starter

I prefer the Paizo and Wizards of the Coast pantheons. Active deities and direct divine magic is prevelant.

If you are looking to play an exorcist; clerics, inquisitors, and wizards can all do the job. If you want to be more magic based, go cleric of Iomadae or Saranae. Both are good gods that dislike undead. Iomadae is more the crusader type and Saranae is a sun godess. I'd recommend Glory and Sun domains if you want to hurt evil things and make undead really dislike you. Though you said Abjuration so you could go Sun and Protection. Inquisitors are a mix of Ranger, Paladin, and Cleric, so they make a good middle ground. If you have seen Van Helsing, with Hugh Jackman, that's what you're looking at playing. Wizards, as you know are fairly skilled at magical affairs, and scribe scroll is a very handy thing.

If you are looking to play something a little more gimmick oriented, both Oracles and Sorcerors have interesting options.

Sounds awesome, there are some great feats for half orcs...such as Scent and Fight-On.

his bio was he escaped from an amazon run orc/half orc camp his mother was the leader at the time.  the camp raided surrounding areas for men to breed and make half orc warrior women, (since as the pathfinder book says orcs view half orcs as more cunning and rutheless, but since he was a male he was put into the slave/breeding stock he led the men of the camp in a revolt in his teens, and eventually (when i take leadership) some of the men from the camp will be following him around wanting him to lead them

Tenative Bunny Girl Race

...standing a little over five feet the female aimed her crossbow. Her large fluffy white ears kept trained on the orc rummaging through her backpack...

+2 to one ability score: Bunny girls are often servants, slaves, wards, or children of human, drow, and devil population. Thus they tend to be very versitile.
Lowlight vision: Bunny Girls can see better than humans in poorer lighting conditions.
Keen Senses: Bunny girls have large ears and sensitive noses, giving them a +2 bonus on sound and scent based perception checks.[i/]
Instinct: Bunny Girls get a +2 racial bonus on Initiative, Stealth, and Survival Checks due to being half animal.
Of two worlds: Bunny girls are treated as both human and animal for effects that target those types.

[b/]Alternative Favored Class Bonuses

Alchemist: Add one more minute duration to the Mutagen's effect.
Bard: Add 1 round to total bardic performances
Druid: Add 1/3 to the number of animals summoned from a Summon Natures Ally spell. Effectively, for every 3 levels this favored option is selected they automatically summon +1,+2, and so forth depending on their level.
Fighter: Add 1 to CMD vs Disarms or Trips
Paladin:Add 1/4 of a lay on hands. When this bonus is chosen 4 times, the paladin is granted an additional use of the ability.
Summoner: The eidolon gains an extra hitpoint or skill point in place of the summoner.

Yeah orcs are much more ruthless in Paizo, almost as awesome as they are in Midnight.

All right, so you're currently an escaped slave. Working your way up in power? What is your alignment? What are your current goals? What's your motivation to help the people of this valley?

Sorry if I get carried away...I like character developement.

alignment would be cg, current goals would be to live a non slave life via adventuring, and motivation would be ale and whores and loot

Oh yes. All pretty and adorable with medium armor and a shield and longsword. Trying oh so hard to not look so damn pathetic while hacking away at monsters. She is the sort of bunnygirl that looks constantly pouty, and makes you wonder about what sort of perverted weapons master would find it in him to train her to be a fighter.

That is her background right there. Was a maid at a dojo for fighters off in some land, doing all of the cleaning and having to deal with the constant sex and naughty from the students and the master. Spending all of those years watching others get to have all of the fun wearing shiny armor and stabbing squishy things.

After those years of watching and gaining 'tips' from students, she showed the master her innate talents at killing things with a sword, so he decided to train her all the way. Still, though, she has a problem with authority and readily agrees to anything anyone wants. Not wanting to be a bother or be a kill joy, as she has spent more time on her back getting sexed up then actual combat experience.

Stupid adorable bunnygirl demands a 8 intelligence score. Since why should she need to read in order to be a bunnygirl maid and stab things repeatably in the face?
