So, as I continue to discuss house rules with the other GMs, is there anything to you folks, the players, that you want to see? It can be a tone, a type of adventure, a type of setting...just let me know. I am a big fan of ooc coordination, and those who have played my games know that I tend toward fairly ambitious games that cater to player styles.
As for the House rules, I am open to ideas as well. Right now we are discussing options to make crafting more profitable/useful, as well as allowed classes. I can say that as far as races go, it will probably be a short list...likely core races with a few other fitting ones, but I don't want too exotic a group since I want the majority of the players to be able to comfortably work in the major cities.
Hmmm, well, if I'm playing Meredith, just some chances to use my bardic skills and charisma would be nice. She's not a whore, though :U So, she's not going to bed everyone convenient for her, but that doesn't mean she won't lead them on, or use her charm to get what she needs. Humans find her pretty, she knows this.
So I guess... some adventures that lean more towards the social and sneaky than outright bloody warfare. That's fine too, and Meredith packs a crossbow to deal with those situations, but some jobs where, maybe they have to steal something during a fancy ball. Of course, I'm sure we'll have big muscular 'Krug smash' types as well, so I'm not saying every mission needs to be like that, but throw the bard a bone, ya know.
As for house rules, I would just suggest being caution not to let anything too gamebreaking slip by. Crafting does sound fun though.
I know the idea of multiple characters was already brought up, but I figured I'd bring up the idea of having multiple characters on the grounds that maybe you can only have one one a mission at time. This way players could take part in certain missions that perhaps one of their characters wouldn't fair so well in. Of course, I can see the downsides of this as well, but I figured I'd bring it up for consideration. I admit, its mostly selfish because as committed as I am to playing Meredith, the idea of a half-orc rogue or a dwarven fighter are pretty tempting.
Still, I can stick to Meredith if I must
Also, what of prestige classes? If they're allowed, I'll likely groom Meredith to become a Pathfinder Chronicler.
