Let the games begin (Pathfinder)
« on: May 28, 2013, 01:59:28 AM »
Intrest thread
In character thread
OOC&Sheets thread

Well it's that time again. Someone has twisted my arm into running a game they want to play a character in. Here goes.

There is a place, a plane, where all other planes in all other times intersect. A pangiaish circle of land the size of a large star floating with what would appear to be absolute nothing for all eternity at its edges. This world serves gameboard with mortals as the play pieces for the amusement of higher powers. Beings from all walks of life come and compete in teams called communities. Why would they do this? Why for fantastic prizes of course. Wealth, magic items, artifacts, land for your community, even new abilities and powers can be won though playing games and challenges here. However entering isn't risk free.  Not only can some challenges can put one in mortal peril, but to enter one has to also wager something of value.

The game will start out by a representative of a community in need of some fresh meat new players sending you all invites they will rip you out of your respective times and planes. Feel free to make your back story as wild as you like; being a princess back home won't matter at all in this new world.

Starting level 6, Abilities will be a choice of 25 point buy, or 1d10+8 seven times, the top six becoming the stat array. Starting gold will be 0. You start with any mundane objects your character would have on them. Any weapons, tools, or armor would be masterwork. Naturally someone like a wizard would have their spellbook and stuff.

This sounds interesting.  Are all the PCs meant to be in the same team/community?

For that matter, any particular books/rules/concepts allowed or not allowed?  I haven't played Pathfinder in a while -- I'd need to review what's out there.

I guess I'm still confused what the players are playing! Were we born in this community, and we're simply 'adventurers' joining the games? Or are we part of the first generation out here, who cut out a little square for themselves, building civilization up from the ground? My first thought when you described this game is that every person should have a 'role' or 'use' to the community, but I'm realized that was assumption after not knowing how big each community is.

Would 'second son of the blacksmith' be a valid character concept? Or would 'THE Blacksmith, creator of any and all weapons in the community' be a more fitting concept?

Advanced guns are fine.

Marie hit the nail on the head. Also I wouldn't worry much about making items in the game as most of it is about winning cool things. Things like blacksmiths, chiefs, tailors, and healers are already more or less taken care of, and the players are recruited to fight in the games.

That, and games can be won where you can win more than just items and money. You can win fame and honor, and also more magical potential, in the form of "gifts". Your class is essentially a powerful Gift, that you can wager in a game for a equally powerful prize. And so forth.

What is allowed? the PFd20 SRD just uploaded stuff from Psionics Expanded, and I've been dying to try out the Abberant archetype Aegis.


If you're not familiar with the class, the base Aegis is basically Iron Man. It works similar to the Summoner in spending points off a customizable menu, but instead of conjuring a construct beast to fight for you, it creates a suit of customizable armor that you wear to augment yourself. The Abberant is similar, but more like Venom/Carnage than Iron Man, since it lets you warp and mutate your own body to do things like sprout naughty combat tentacles.


EDIT: Rolls 15, 15, 14, 14, 13, 11. Very boring and even.

Okay, putting up a character to test the waters.


This is Erato Rosenrot. Back on his home plane, Erato was almost a legend in the regions he frequented. While his (mis)adventures, legitimate and criminal, were the focus of most of the tales (a great deal of them spread by Erato himself), some detailed his... other exploits (a number of these too were spread by Erato). The veracity of almost all of the tales is questionable at best, and he used his celestial heritage mostly in order to woo tavern wenches. Erato likes to keep mementos of his conquests, and will either palm one of their possessions or sketch them. He also frequently writes songs about them. To say that the loss of his collection of songs, sketches, and personal effects when he was taken from his home plane was slightly jarring would be an understatement.

My character sheet is currently finished, i'm just still working on the character. My character (Mika Brandish) is basically one those characters where they are hilariously strong compared to their stature (Mika's strength score being a 20 and her height being only 5 feet). Despite being a shy girl who doesn't like adventuring, Mika is just ridiculously good at wielding a greatsword. The village sent for out for several reasons. One obviously being the possibility of gaining more land and two being her talents at using a greatsword than the others in her village. Then again, most of the villagers are farmers who think Mika's personality is just over-modesty.

 Ill be dropping the nine.

Aquatic creatures dwell within seas and lakes, mainly along coastal regions.

If the creature dwells exclusively underwater, it gains the aquatic subtype and replaces its land or fly speed with an identical swim speed. If the creature is able to also travel on land, it gains the amphibious special quality, reduces its land speed by 10 ft., loses any fly speed, and acquires a swim speed equal to its original speed. An aquatic creature also gains low-Light vision 60 ft.

this is a plus 0 template I would like to take and I would be going the Amphibious route.

Unless I can switch to point buy instead of using my questionable rolls (and really even then, this is Pathfinder after all), my character will probably be a spellcaster of some kind.

The summoner looks pretty fun, but I need to hit the books in a bit more detail before I decide.  (Sorry for being a bit slow to post -- I should be able to resume regular Internet access tomorrow sometime.)

EDIT: I'm probably going with a tiefling master-summoner using Fiendish Heritage, although I expect the dice will make me regret it again.  (DOUBLE EDIT: Unless the feat/rolls aren't needed anymore in Blood of Fiends.  So complicated...)

Morgan, Sorceress of Storms



Having decended from a Blue Dragon, she has the gift of magic, lightning in particular. She is mostly self serving, but is not above helping others if it suits her mood. She dresses with little modesty, showing off the tattoo on her back, depicting a Blue Dragon.

Most of her drive comes simply because she is bored. Peak her interest and she will probably help you, bore her, and she will ignore you.
