Recruiting for a Pathfinder Campaign
« on: December 21, 2010, 09:10:23 PM »
Pathfinder
 


A young woman comes up to you.   She is roughly five foot tall, with heels about five feet four inches.   Black hair, blue or gray eyes although with the lighting it appears her eyes may even be lavender.    She is dressed in a white button down blouse and gray pinstripe pencil skirt.    Hands you a gift card from Macys, that says; ‘you have won a free holidays vacation trip from Macys’.   ‘Come Sunday Twenty Sixth of December 2010, at 0900 am’.  ‘To collect your winning prize.’   

As each one arrives at the department store Macys.   Each is directed to the Santa Claus North Pole display scene, where children had come to speak with Santa Claus for Christmas just past the day before.   Once all that have received a card with advising them they have won a free trip have arrived.    The woman that handed out the cards to each one of you arrives.   She introduces herself, as Lailai Smith.  She then asks the group to follow her as she leads the group then into the Santa castle of the North Pole display.    Entering the setting the group comes up on the empty seat of Santa Claus.    Ms Smith does not stop but continues through the display.  With it becoming pitch dark, despite the complete darkness the group is able to follow Ms Smith.   


What the ‘Fairy Tails’  campaign is about,  it is about five to six individuals who have a connection to the magical fantasy land of Never never land.     

The system used;  Pathfinder     For convenience here is the open source reference documents for Pathfinder –  http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/gettingStarted.html

Starting Character level is 1st  level
Ability Scores are brought with  20 point buy
Races – Only Standard races.
Classes – Only standard classes.
Alignments – Any good,  lawful neutral,  true neutral and only one chaotic neutral
Starting gold - as per starting for class.  (Note a character with wealth in real world persona does not transcribe to the fantasy realm.)

The game will be set in ’extreme system small group games’.

Each character will have a background of now modern day .    Any kind of profession from law enforcement, nurse, schoolteacher, etc…  In the real world, the characters are human.    They may have a tell tale marking that they are more then human if so, with their ‘Never never land’ persona.    Which when in the fantasy realm they assume their inner persona.   Example they might be elven when enter the magical realm.   

The game is designed for the characters to grow as they adventure on a epic quest, to fight evil.   That not only threatens Never never land but the real world as well.   In a dark gritty setting that has horror unspeakable atrocities and harsh realities that indeed the strongest survive.   Rape, and other malicious offenses can and might just happen even upon player characters.

Seeking players committed to long term  role play

Wow, this is really cool.  So, once we enter the magical land some potential unlocks?  For example, an accountant could start out as a wizard?

Yes that is that is the general gist.    As well the campaign will not only take place in Never never land, but also will go back and forth with the real world.

What the heck- I'll bite.

Name: Luther Rossolio
Concept: Man with nothing thrust into a position of great importance.
As a human, Luther is a short, stocky white guy in his 20's.  His face is mildly disfigured, a curse of genetics.  In high school, he had but one passion- music.  His voice was immaculate, and he tried to get on the choir, but nobody ever let him.  When they added ten people to the roster and didn't include him, his passion turned dark- he realized that no matter his talent or skill, no matter how hard he worked, nobody would pay any attention to him because he was ugly.  His life after high school wasn't anything special, either- he got an associate's in hotel management and found himself in the middle of a recession.  He found himself flipping burgers to get by.  So when a cute girl comes up to him at Macy's telling him he won a prize, it was somewhat astonishing.  He managed to get co-workers to cover for him so he could go, and at 9:00 am just after Christmas, he was there.

His nether self is almost his exact physical opposite, perhaps responding to the natural gifts he craved.  He is a tall and fit elven man, with long, silky raven hair that he ties behind him into a ponytail, keeping his ears reasonably well hidden.  In addition, he has dusky green eyes, a short blade at his side, a backpack, a longbow and quiver, and a scroll pouch, as well as a buckler strapped to his arm.

1st level true neutral elven Bard
STR 12 (2) DEX 15 (3) CON 11 (3) INT 14 (2) WIS 10 (0) CHA 16 (10)
Skill Ranks: Acrobatics 2, Bluff 4, Climb 4, Diplomacy 4, Disguise 2, Escape Artist 4, Perception 4, Perform [Oratory] 4, Stealth 4
Feats: Combat Expertise
Spells: 0: Detect Magic, Message, Mending, Prestidigitation; 1: Cure Light Wounds, Summon Monster I
Items: Short sword, longbow, 20 arrows, boot dagger, backpack, bedroll, leather armor, buckler, scroll case with a collection of poetic epics, some chalk, a mirror, a torch, 3 days of trail rations, flint and steel
Change: 13 gp 13 sp 8 cp
I rolled 140 for gold [id 20835, my user id is 16670]

Consider me tentatively interested. I'll brainstorm a bit on a character concept. How do you feel about APG classes (summoner, alchemist, etc)?

Such is fine.

dnd3edm1 -  need to adjust skill points are not times at 1st level as per 3.5 D&D.    So as a Bard you get 6+int bonus.  Assign your points to skills and you gain a +3 bonus on these skills if you have ranks in them

For reference - http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/usingSkills.html

The initial post has a link that is quite helpful.  As it has all the information.  The basic thing to remember is Pathfinder is 3.5 D&D  a 3.75 version with tweaks with improvement.

Perhaps you could help explain skills to me, for I am dense. How many would a human bard get at first level with a statline of 9,15,8,13,13,18? Or altenatively have I mad a horrible mistake with my point allocation? I'd really apreciate the help.

Like to mention we already have a bard.

A bard starts with 6+intelligence bonus in skill ranks and receives such each level.   A human character gets +1 at each level in addition.

Reference link  http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/usingSkills.html

Now  in building ability scores base stats are 10 not 8 as in 3.5 D&D.  Scroll down in the provided link.  You will find a chart that gives you the cost for building up attributes.  An what points awarded if lower a attribute to gain more points to the 20 point pool for attributes.

I am aware of the other bard here I'm just kind of hoping for more people to fill the other roles (as selfish as that seems I know). Thanks for the help for figuring out skills and such I have really no idea what I'm doing at all, finaly skill ranks I'm somewhat baffeled the site says I can have 8 if I have this right (6+int moddifier,1,+1 for being human) but I dont know how the rules work for applying these. that and spells how many can I learn I'm sure its on there some where but I am an idiot. Please help.

To the left is a lexicon with links to the pages you needed.  This is in the linked pages I provided to you so far.  For what skills to pick,  need to go to classes find the bard class and read through the bard class.   It lists the class skills available to a bard.

Same with magic listed  links.   Take your time read through and you should get a better understanding.

Shame about the core races only... FINALLY found an inspiration to use an Assimar in a game becuase of this setting!

Compulsive Gambler.. very lucky person.. on the other side finds out that he/she is a 'fated' bloodline sorcerer of Assimar stock. LOL. With ties to a celestial servant to the god/goddess of luck

Ah well.

An Assimar will be fine.    As per the pathfinder rules   http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/monsters/aasimar.html#aasimar

In regards to creating a player character of that is an  Assimar.

This sounds really interesting. I've never done an online Pathfinder game before, but I'm not stranger to the game.

Also, I find http://www.d20pfsrd.com/ to be an excellent Pathfinder source.

I was thinking something along the lines of an Archaeology student who is a Sorcerer in Never Neverland, a large and gruff woodsy kind of guy who is a Ranger in Never Neverland, a construction worker/road-side worker who is a Barbarian or Fighter, and a few others.

One question, would you allow a male to play a female character, and would our characters have alternate lives in Never Neverland, or would they find themselves suddenly thrust in to this odd world with strange and wondrous abilities?

Thank you for the link,  had lost it was on my laptop.   Character sounds good, looking forward to seeing it done up...

To answer the question if want to play female that is fine.  Although it is based on others in the role play how they feel.   In regards to other added stuff outside of the campaign.   

To answer the other part.  Your suddenly thrust into the magical world and inherit the basic knowledges of being a level 1.   The course of the game will see the party returning for some parts of the campaign to the real world.   In their original human forms.
