Or you can copy paste what I typed (the 4d6 thing) and say "7 times."

Similar to Zaer, I used Invisible Castle. It's so much easier to do: 7 rolls, 4d6.minroll(2).takeHighest(3)

I wound up with: 15, 14, 14, 14, 12, and 10, for an above average but not exceptional person. Who I want to be is the keyboard player. Why? Because every band needs a keyboard player. And it seemed like a role no one else wanted. I'll figure out exactly what to make later.

Those stats are a little low, so I'll give you the option of turning that 10 to a 17 or you can roll another stat line.

Hrmmm... this looks interesting...

Any idea by when you'd like charsheets in?

Sometime this weekend, not sure if it'll be Saturday night or Sunday evening though.

While on the topic of character sheets, would you all mind filling out the character profile I have coded on the first post so it is easier for me to see who is wanting to play what?

Can I ask a very silly question. Do we have to be bards? If we just have a perform skill would that be enough?

No, you don't have to be bards or even have to pick a class with a perform class skill.  The good thing about pathfinder is that you can put ranks in any skill up to your HD, it's just that class skills won't get the +3 to them, which while handy, doesn't make it impossible to get good rolls; especially since you all will be rolling as a collective.  Plus, you can pick out two traits and I think there are a few in there that allow you to have perform as a class skill.   :-)

To save you the trouble of searching for it if you want it:
http://www.d20pfsrd.com/traits/social-traits/savant (+2 for single performance category; becomes class skill.)
http://www.d20pfsrd.com/traits/social-traits/talented (+1 for all music, acting, or storytelling performances; becomes class skill.)

Getting at least two bard levels is a good idea because of well versed. +4 save against other bards is OP in this game.

Rolled another stat line. 16, 16, 16, 14, 13, 12. I will keep and be exceedingly happy with these rolls.

Name: Alexander Verfauw
Sex: Male
Race: Tiefling
Class:  Magus (Kensai)
Instrument: He prefers the keyboards, but could play the guitar, bass, or even some variety of horn if the band somehow decides that's what they want to go with. Might also double as a roadie, security, groupie wrangler, who knows.

Personality: Publicly, Alex is a snarky jerk, perfectly capable of deriding anyone at all and maintaining the upper hand. When that fails, he makes them make a fool of themselves by means unknown. In private, he is a monster. The show outside is him restraining himself to the Nth degree. The band doesn't even know, though they hear rumors. At shows, he is nearly silent unless his particular voice is needed for effect. He lets his music speak for him and through him, going into almost a fervor on the keys.

Sexual Preferences: Alex is a sick and twisted individual. He likes to hide behind the scenes, promise that girls can meet some of the other band members, and waylay them with a combination of drugs, potions, and his own charm. When that doesn't work, that's what chains, manacles, and rope are for. He is a deviant, a sadist, and a number of other things. But he plays a mean set of keyboards and looks the part of the "bad boy". His antics are not limited to girls or boys, but he does prefer ladies as they tend to make more delightful noises.

Band Name Idea(s): The Frumious Bandersnatches; Astarotte (if Nicci is chosen, replace with other lead singer name otherwise) and the Leftovers; Hardtack; With Special Guest; Everybody Gets Laid; Hard Banging; Demilich;

Astarotte is naturally the lead singer and writes all of the songs for the band to follow and gain more fame and pussy for everyone. Classically trained under a elvish bardic master over the past few centuries after he rescued her from a boring harem and alluring her attentions with bad sexist jokes and puns. So she spends a few hundred years apprenticing under the elvish bard and learning his secrets while fucking him into a early grave.

Free of her Master the young succubus does what is only natural, forming her own band and joining up with the contests across the land to show off her skill and to show the mobs that not all succubus are evil harlots!

as an aside if i roll any 17 or 18 i will end up with  a 22 cha which with trait and skill focus and musetouched bonus and level 5 gives a 21 in perfrom...with vestile performance that can give me a 21 in a bunch of skills...all for only 5 skill points   :o ;D

Perfom really needs not to be general so we dont trip over each other with our perfom skills!

Pshaw, everyone knows that assamir cannot write proper rock/metal music, they lack the right levels of artistic suffering for it! Clearly you need a mind, such as mine, that is properly depraved to truly understand the meaning of metal and rock.
