Like I mentioned before. I'm gonna play a hard caster Gestalt. Probably a specialist wizard and a psion specialized in something the wizard banned.

A Brief History of Arvinon



The current year is 1242 of the Fifth Age.
The Fifth Age began at the end of the War From Beyond and the defeat of Those From Beyond. The victory tore the land apart, with the Izvis peninsula sinking in part and creating what are now the Pryayatsu Empire and the Straits of Afin’Dor. The nation of Afin’Dor, who’s rulers brought about the war, ceased to be while leaving island littering the Straits with ruins from their former glory.
Most of the times greatest heroes and villains of the time died in the war along with the northern god Falthur Deedkeeper. This included almost all the users of magic be it those who wielded the very fabric of reality, unlocked the powers of the mind, were friends of nature or followed the will of the Gods. The greatest exception was the Tower of Knowledge in the city-state of Arithanos, which became the greatest concentration of magic users of those who survived the war.
Most of the current kingdoms, especially in the west, were created after The War From Beyond by those left in power or those who seized it. The notable exceptions are the dwarf lands of the Granite Kingdom and the elf lands of Gaermound-i-Alkarinqa'ara, although the former lost a substantial portion of its lands as the world sought to heal itself following the War From Beyond.

And your starting point, Arithanos;
http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc253/speedtrip/Mobile%20Uploads/Arithanos10-17-10.jpg


Ye Olde 16




1. What game system are you running (D&D, Call of Cthulu, Palladium, GURPS, etc.), and if applicable what edition (Original, Classic, Revised, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 10th, etc.)?
Pathfinder with Gestalt rules and some 3.5

2. What 'type' or variant of game will it be (i.e. "Shadow Chasers" or "Agents of Psi" for d20 Modern)? What is the setting for the game (eg. historic period, published or homebrewed campaign setting, alternate reality, modern world, etc.)?
It's a homebrew setting.

3. How many Players are you looking for? Will you be taking alternates, and if so, how many?
Just you two.

4. What's the gaming medium (OOTS, chat, e-mail etc.)?
On this forum. Prefer character sheets on Mythweavers.

5. What is the characters' starting status (i.e. experience level)?
3rd level

6. How much gold or other starting funds will the characters begin with?
3000gp

7. Are there any particular character classes, professions, orders, etc. that you want... or do not want? What are your rules on 'prestige' and/or homebrewed classes?
Any PF Core, APG, Advanced Races, Ultimate Combat, and Ultimate Magic.


8. What races, subraces, species, etc. are allowed for your game? Will you allow homebrewed races or species? 'Prestige' races or species?
Any races from the above books.


9. By what method should Players generate their attributes/ability scores and Hit Points?
Roll 5d6b3, roll it seven times,reroll 1's and best 6. Do this twice, and choose the set you want.

10. Does your game use alignment? What are your restrictions, if so?
Play within reason. Alignment shouldn't straightjacket your roleplaying.

11. Do you allow multi-classing, or have any particular rules in regards to it?
No penalties

12. Will you be doing all of the die rolling during the course of the game? Will die rolls be altered, or left to the honor system? If players can make die rolls, which ones do they make, how should they make the rolls, and how should they report them?
Use the forum dice roller for all your rolls, I will roll initiative for everyone just to speed things up, I will make secret rolls, as well as some public rolls.

13. Are there any homebrewed or optional/variant rules that your Players should know about? If so, list and explain them, or provide relevant links to learn about these new rules.
2 traits per the standard rules plus a couple of goodies thrown your way.


14. Is a character background required? If so, how big? Are you looking for anything in particular (i.e. the backgrounds all ending up with the characters in the same city)?
You are starting in Arithanos. Describe why you are here. Do the two of you know each other or are you two going to meet?

15. Does your game involve a lot of hack & slash, puzzle solving, roleplaying, or a combination of the above?
Probably a fairly equal mix of hack 'n' slash, and roleplay. There will be some intrigue but not masses of puzzle solving.

16. Are your Players restricted to particular rulebooks and supplements, access to non-standard material? What sources can Players use for their characters?
Advanced Players Guide, Advanced Races Guide, Core, Ultimate Combat, Ultimate Equipment, Ultimate Magic, Spell Compendium (3.5), Tome of Battle (3.5 if you want), Psionics Expanded, and Psioncs Unleased. Any other 3.5 stuff you want to port over just run it past me. Any PF 3rd party let me know the source and I'll review it.






Gods of Arvinon (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvTvUc7o7mvYdE83SUZVLXBQdXNiMUxBdFJCR3NzZ UE#gid=0)


Having a patron god carries certain benefits, especially if you roleplay their ideals.

Is it approved that my Inquisitor is allowed to follow/worship an ideal, instead of a deity? How that works, is it would choose an inquisition or domain that compliments the ideal. Like, one ideal may be that deception can turn heretics into believers, and the inquisitor would take the conversion Inquisition.

I had a feeling you were.

Anyways. I have a question that plays into the long term.

The Erudite discipline for psions trades powers known at certain levels for daily powers in their place. At 2nd 7th 12th and 17th. If i took a prestige class, as written, I'd lose the powers known at those levels but not gain a daily power in their place either. Would you allow for the daily powers to be progressed by a prestige class?

meemaas
2013-01-05, 10:52 PM

Forgot to prepare spells, just now realized that. Been a long while since i've done a prepared caster so i forgot that. Anyways, here's the list of spells i've got for today, and i'm also just now remembering to put in certain essential purposes, namely my spellbook and spell component pouch on my sheet as i speak

Cantrips
Prestidigitation, Amanuensis, Detect Magic, Read Magic
1st Level
Obscuring Mist, Nerveskitter x2, Mage Armor, Lesser Orb of Acid
2nd Level
Create Pit, Snake's Swiftness, Web

He's not gonna be carrying much besides his spellbook and any other books he ends up keeping for himself. And a wand of Infernal Healing that i completely forgot about. I'm sorry for taking so long to get that done, i intended to do it before now. Sorry

You guys rocked the knowledge rolls.

So both of you know of the dress and look of the two guys hanging. They belong to a sect of Elan who broke away from main Enclave. The preach to others to become an Elan as part of the path to bind with the higher forms of life that exist in the universe and in realms of thought beyond mortal understanding. While the Enclave look down upon them as misguided children, there has never been any violence between the two groups. While sometimes accosted by others for their unsettling vibe they give off they are non-violent except in defense of themselves or others.

No worries.
So, go ahead and post Azael opening the door opening the door and we'll kick off the action from there.

meemas, I didn't put in Rowan's action because he had the held persistent blade spell but the last note has him casting summon monster 1. Let me know which direction you want to go. Also, Rowan, I just realized, doesn't have any hit point!

Oh, and I added numbers and letters to the map so you can tell me where you are ending up.

I double checked the thread to make sure i got it right. 25 HP. Also i had held an action for it, but i changed my mind because of how many there were.

What did you want to summon and where did you want to deposit it at?

I'm thinking a Celestial Dog at P22. Thought i didn't have to make that decision until the spell was complete though, since its a One round action.

So, Savior has just informed me that he has lost all capability to enjoy and play DnD, and he is dropping out of this game. I'm sorry for his behalf. It happens with him occasionally.

I'll remember that. This was actually the last game he was keeping up on, he's been posting from his phone because his internets been shut off for a while, so hopefully when he gets his internet back and settled into his work schedule he'll be more willing to pick back up. I'd ask to continue, but i wouldn't do his character correctly, and even if i did, a solo game just doesn't seem as fun right now.
