I see!  I apologise for missing that.  :)  That makes it a lot more ballanced now.  I'll adjust.

  That does sound good, so let’s make the following changes:
Prehensile tail and Scaled Skin remain unchanged
You need to find a new feat instead Defensive Combat Training, which could be Fiendish Heritage, then rather than rolling on the table you simply swap Darkness for Contact Outer Planes with the above limitations (but CoP allows one word questions, not just yes/no ones, to make up for the unreliability). I like the ideas you have for the how divination works.


  Regarding the new rules for tiefling’s, I never saw the point. The tiefling was a complete race without it, and unlike the dhampir and skinwalker, it has more than enough alternate racial traits to keep it versatile (11 vs. the dhampires 5 and the skinwalkers 1). Even requiring a feat, the option to take it is still an advantage, and as for aasimars, I’d rather they had to take a feat to change their heritages too, instead of giving a huge dose of versatility to a race that doesn’t need it.
Alright-- I've changed DCT to Fiendish Heritage, and changed Commune for Contact Outer Planes.  Hope that it works out, and I look forward to how this game pans out

  Okay, after much, painful deliberation, I think I have the party:

Pockets with Kiera Felldrake
Ixy with Stela Raynov
Blinkin with Lydia Lovelady
TheGlyphstone with Ebron Stavros
Chulanowa with Keely Truffwhizzit
Muse with Melisandre Whitethorn

  OOC thread: https://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=243294.0

  To those who did not make it:
PhantomPistoleer with Hector – Hector was a solid character with the tragic backstory, but the character ended being similar to Pocket’s Paladin and I wanted to see how a variant multiclass character performed, and there wasn’t really enough room for both characters.

Veinexes with Greeck – I did like the goblin who had embraced a humanoid faith and life style, but ultimately Greek was rather similar Keely, in the whole “small ranged character” department, so I had to choose one, and I wanted to see what the kineticist played. Unfortunately I did not have enough room to add both of you for the blossoming gnome/goblin romance.

Zaer Darkwail with Iorthir Icesong the Half-Born – The Viking elves were a good invention, and there was potential with the finding Janessa plot hook, but with Iorthir there would have been 3 melee characters in the party, and so I went with the other two, since they both had more relevant abilities for the setting.

   Even so, it was difficult making those cuts. If spaces open up, do you want to be notified?

Re: PF-erized Expedition to Castle Ravenloft - 1-3 new characters needed

  So far progress has been a little slow, the party is in the process of dealing with a zombie/undead blight in the town of Barovia. Looking for a couple of new characters to replace those that had to leave. Still level 6, see OP for character creation guidelines. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me or post them in this thread.

That's from the dreamscarred press path of war, right?

Ooooh, being able to play something from that makes this oh so tempting.

Did someone say- RAVENLOFT?!

And now I need to do some poking. Is this first come first serve, applicant screening etc?

  Well, Expedition to Castle Ravenloft. This doesn't take place on the demiplane of Ravenloft, but rather takes the most iconic realm from there and puts it in a more traditional fantasy setting.

And now I need to do some poking. Is this first come first serve, applicant screening etc?

  If more people apply than I have room for the game, it wouldn't be first come first serve, I would look over which ones complement the party mechanically, would fit in with the others personality wise and which ones I find the most interesting.

Ooooh, being able to play something from that makes this oh so tempting.

  Yes, Path of War has been okay-ed and I will consider other 3rd party/homebrew on request.

Okay so you have

A tank
A alchemist
A Jack Sparrow (ish)

Do you want a healer?
Maybe a combat rogue?
Gunslinger?
Melee off tank?
Arcane explosions?

Same questions from my part and also voice interest. I could cover melee off tank with my earlier 'elf viking' concept, but I am also interested make a arcane caster who makes things go boom in battlefield (probably a tiefling sorcerer/wizard or a warlock).

  Some divine power, especialy with healing, would be pretty awesome in my book.  Currently we're reliant on my brewing potiosn to mend our wounds.

Hmmm, Sinestra, how sounds we work our chars together? They could know each other already or even be related (twins, brother and sister etc). You get pick do you want go more divine/healing type char or other char (arcane boom power maybe).

It's more a Jaclyn Sparrow than a Jack.. and I'm actually closer to the original 3 Musketeers than Sparrow.

The original party was a group of adventurers who had worked together off and on in the past and knew each other, so something that links new characters to the party would be nice. Maybe a sort of, "Wow, what are you doing here? Whatcha been up to?" maybe?

I'd like to submit a support cleric of Shelyn, if you allow the Golarion deities (I don't think I'm up to making my own). If you have a pantheon in mind you'd rather I use, I'd be happy to choose from that, too. :)

I'm looking at making a melee war lord for now, up close and personal in a fight. Backup option includes a ranged stalker.

    This could work. I think it’s more important the new players know each other, and where then also invited via a letter similar to the one your group received. For familiarity they obviously won’t be as well known to you as you are to each other, but you could have definitely met before in as city or on a mission.

Do you want a healer?
Maybe a combat rogue?
Gunslinger?
Melee off tank?
Arcane explosions?

  I have no real preference, all of those are good. Feel free to co-ordinate your choice with the players and other applicants.

  Yes we are using Golarion deities for the most part, so a cleric of Shelyn works well.

  Both of those should work. One thing to bear in mind when making a war lord, a lot of your enemies will be undead, and as such immune to mind affecting abilities (but not sneak attack and crits, since this is Pathfinder).

Most of what I wanna do as a warlord is just hit things really hard. Most things aren't immune to a ton of damage at least  ;D

Though I am still undecided between the two. the thought of making a holy archer is also quite fun. I'll work on a sheet tonight.

I certainly wouldn't mind a melee buddy - it's a lot easier for me to protect people when they're close to me.
