    Default Way of the Wicked (Pathfinder OOC)

    Recruitment thread is here!
    http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=259602

    IC is here!

    Alright! Welcome to the OOC thread for our little rendition of the "Way of the Wicked" adventure path! You start as imprisoned scum, with nothing but rags on your backs! But in the darkest hour of your life, you find a chance to go darker still! Be smart, be cunning, work together to raise yourselves and your allies up! Cast down the smug goodness that has taken over your land, and SHOW THEM. SHOW THEM ALL.

    Party Exp: 0

    Ground Rules:

    1. The characters are evil, but should act in a cooperatively evil fashion. After all, who else are you going to find to admire your triumphs, and compliment you on a job wickedly done? Player strife and PVP should be kept to a miniumum. We're all in this to have fun, kiddies, so let's make sure everyone is having one hell of a ride!

    2. The forums are PG-13, so let's respect that. Don't go into grossly gory details or get too weird. If you do manage to seduce that temple acolyte, let matters fade to black. If you perform the final sacrifice to He-who-burns-babies, there's no need to go into detail about how you're braiding their intestines into a fetching scarf. Besides, the things that you leave to the viewer's imagination are always FAR more disturbing than what you can describe...

    3. There are going to be times (such as combat) where waiting on one person to post will cause an unacceptable delay. As such, I want every Prime to choose a Puppeteer. A Puppeteer is another Prime player, who will take over your character in the event that you vanish for a while or can't post for some reason. The puppeteer will be ready to control your character's actions until you either return, or we can work your character out of the plot to make room for a replacement. Which brings me to posting etiquette...

    4. By signing up for this game you are agreeing to posting at least once a weekday, and generally trying to keep the game's momentum going as you can. If you can't handle that, there's plenty of other games out there. Good luck and have fun. (Weekends are more catch-as-catch can. My time's sometimes limited then, so I don't mind if we slow down a bit there.)

    You are also agreeing to notify us if you see a period of time approaching where you can't post for 24 hours or more. Give us advance notification please, so we can work around it and get your character puppeted to maximum efficiency!

    5. I'll handle initiative. When combat starts, post your action whenever a turn starts, then wait for the end of the turn. Once everyone's posted for a turn then I'll process it, and type up the results.

    6. LEVELLING UP: When you level, roll for hit points normally. However, in the event that your hit-die roll is less than half of your potential die maximum, then adjust the die roll up to half of the die maximum.


    LIST OF PRIMES

    Think of it as a buddy system, usually two people within the game will pair up together so that if one is away and cannot post the other can temporarily post an action for them until they return.

    Also... I am calling purple for my color since it is lovely and dark and Yog-Sothoths favorite! I will edit this to include my character post in a minute!

    Here's the sheet for Nana Jodi

    Standard formating for most posts are as follows: Black is descriptive text of the character's action Coloured texts is used to represent speech, some people prefer regular or some people speak in bold however, when a character is thinking to themselves italic is used with their speech colour

    I hope this is helpful and feel free to ask questions!

    It's explained up in Ground Rule #3. Not everyone on the boards uses the puppeteer system, it's something I'm trying to introduce.

    Think of it like having an understudy, for those times the main actor can't be there.

    Also I will select Angstrom as my puppeteer since they are also a caster and though my caster is a healer they will soon have the abilities of an illusionist (to an extent of course)

    In that case, I think this will be my color. Because, hey, barbarians get angry. I think Griffith! would be a good understudy for my PC, since we are both frontliners (if he is willing).

    I'll call the color Royal Blue for fun and profit.

    How about it, Morbis Meh? Sub for me? ...that actually sounds dirty.

    @Griffith!

    Were you planning on being a ranged specialist? I noticed you took Point Blank Shot for your starting feat. You have the abilities to make a good TWF, so I'm curious if Silas will be on the front line by himself.

    Since everyone else is using Myth-Weavers for their character sheets, I thought I would hop on the bandwagon.

    From an optimization standpoint, two-weapon fighting is a sub-par option for antipaladins. Most feat-heavy builds are kinda rough. But even ignoring that, I always wanted to be a ranged paladin in 3.5. Ranged antipaladin? Even better.

    Thank you again for allowing me to join the game, Lost Demiurge.

    I am proud to present this character, inspired by the movies Heathers and Mean Girls, and also by the wonderful fantasy novel The Iron Dragon's Daughter by Michael Swanwick.

    Name: Sirin Starshine
    Gender: Female
    Race: Half-Elf
    Class: Rogue

    Aliases: Sirin Lipstick, Powderpuff Girl, That Poisonous B****

    Description: A pretty young half-elven woman with black hair in a pageboy cut and brilliant and moist blue eyes. She looks like her mother, the actress Melissa Starshine, but she lacks Melissa's confident stage presence. In fact, she seems a little shy.

    She does not look like a girl who arranged for over a dozen teachers and fellow students to kill themselves and/or each other. And yet she did, and she is.

    Background
    Spoiler
    Show
    Sirin Starshine is the daughter of the renowned and very wealthy elven philanthropist Rovan Starshine (owner of Starshine Perfumes and Cosmetics) and the human beauty queen and opera star Melissa Starshine (Rowan has a habit of marrying beautiful human women every 40 years or so).

    When she was small, everyone told Sirin that she was beautiful just like her mother. But when she went to St Beatrice Finishing School for Young Ladies, Sirin learned that she was merely pretty, not stunning. That and the fact that she was half-elven made her isolated and unhappy for the first time in her life.

    Sirin tried to fit in, but nothing worked. The other girls were cruel to her. Sirin prayed for revenge, and a dark god heard and answered.

    Feya, an older girl also going to St Beatrice's, approached and befriended Sirin. She taught how the other girls could be flattered and manipulated and fooled. Sirin was a bright child and learned well. And when she evinced a talent for alchemy, Feya spent an afternoon every week for a year teaching Sirin special recipes for "little concoctions for mean people".

    The night before Feya graduated from St Beatrice's, she brought Sirin to a secret meeting of the cult of Norgorber. By then, her attendance was just a formality. Sirin already belonged.


    The next year, Sirin used what she had learned to make herself the queen bee of the school.

    She flattered other girls and learned their secrets, then passed them on in ways that made close friends into rivals and enemies. She made herself a teacher's pet so she could gain access to confidential documents. She stole love letters and changed a name or two, then planted them where the worst possible person could find them. She left sharp knives and labeled jars of poison near some very depressed, very jealous, or very angry people.

    It took a dedicated detective months to determine that the plague of assaults, murders, suicides, and poisonings that decimated teachers and students alike at St Beatrice's was not a coincidence. And when he presented the evidence to the courts, not even Rovan's lawyers could protect Sirin from being probed with magic and then judged guilty.

    To this day, Sirin pleads her innocence. She claims, "I had nothing to do with all that. They all did it on their own."

    Chillingly, she seems to believe it.


    Hmm. I guess that leaves Finkmilkana as my partner.

    Sjurd: May I respectfully point out that you seem to have made Silas with over 40 ability points?

    Or am I overlooking something?

    Whoa. WHOAWHOAWHOAWHOA!

    Sjurd?

    How the hell are you rocking a 22 at first level?

    On a 20 point buy total?

    14... 18... In fact, I don't think it's POSSIBLE to get a 20 in a score? Did you mess up somewhere?

    EDIT: The 18 alone is 17 points. The 14 is 5 points. Even with the half-orc floating +2 plugged into strength...

    May I suggest a somewhat lesser but more legal build of 13, 16, 15, with the +2 applied as you please?

    Also, you forgot your base save of +2 to fortitude. Small potatoes, true, but as long as you're gonna be fixing things...

    At the very bottom of the character sheet, under 'Other Notes':

    "Base Statistics - When not raging, Silas has the following statistics: AC 12, touch 12, flat-footed 12; hp 15 (1d12+3); Fort +4, Ref +2, Will +0; Melee bite +5 (1d4+4/20x2); Melee Power Attack bite +4 (1d4+6/20x2); Ranged none; Str 18, Con 14."

    Since I plan on entering a rage almost immediately for every single fight, it is easier to list my rage statistics rather than my base statistics. Make sense?

    I'm not DMing this one, but usually? No. Not really okay. Your base attributes are supposed to go there because they're, y'know, the base. But it's DM's call, so.

    Oh. Whew!

    I see what you did there, rather relieved. thanks for the explanation. But no, please list the base statistics in the basic sheet.

    Now if you want to keep a duplicate sheet with your rage stats figured in, that's fine by me.

    I mean, theoretically, you might use up all of your rage rounds before you could rest. Might happen, in a drawn-out excursion.

    Checking in.

    My sheet is here again.

    As color I'll choose DarkGreen.

    And I'm ok with Frivolous as my partner.

    Edit: One thing that I just noticed: What should I use as Divine Focus for the time between now (after falling from grace) and converting fully to Asmodeus?
    Since we don't have any items either way it does not seem that pressing, but at some point being able to actually cast would be appreciated.

    I didn't mean anything by it. WotC has used that formatting style in quite a number of products. Look here and here for examples.

    I figure it would be best, since I will activate my rage every single chance I get. That means my base statistics would be used during surprise rounds if I fail my Perception check, or after I have exhausted my uses of rage for the day. I think the times when I use rage would outnumber the times I don't. But I'm more than happy to change it if you like.

    That reminds me. Going with Dark Orange.

    If it's too bright for the eyes of others (and it might be for my own eyes), I'd go with Dim Gray instead. Just let me know if that is the case.

    I actually wanted to take DimGray at first, but it seems to be to similar to black (at least on my monitor), so I believe the orange is better.

    A broken sunburst (Mitra's symbol) might be appropriate.

    Sjurd: Eh, like I said it's not a huge deal. But I would be quite happy if you change it!

    Waitin' on Angstrom... I'll fire off a notice. If he/she/whatever doesn't show, then we'll go to one of the caster alternates...

    Sorry I was late. The combination of working late and posting from the west coast can have that unfortunate effect.

    Bridget's Sheet

    I think she'll speak in Teal

    Description:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Her hair is a wavy cascade of auburn tresses that descend to her shoulders. Below her long bangs sit a pair of striking green eyes.

    She wears a custom tailored black longcoat and high riding boots while meeting clients, but uses disguises when working.

    Backstory:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Some of Bridget's earliest memories are of performing as part of a large children's choir in Matharyn. A talented performer, she had aspirations of a career in showbusiness that were cut short when it was discovered that she had been drugging rivals in order to advance her career. Exiled from the professional stage, she repurposed her talents towards various crimes. A master at duping then drugging citizens to be sold as slaves in foreign markets, she also took part in ensemble crimes where she would aid as a distraction during a heist or would coerce marks into unknowingly giving away valuable information. Her skill set earned her a reputation in Matharyn's shrinking underworld and it wasn't long until the city guard began hunting her.

    Normally quite careful, Bridget slipped up one day and when selling a charmed citizen by acquiescing to her slaver contact's request to meet at an unknown location. Walking into a trap set up by Matharyn's city guard she was quickly sentenced. However, before she could be sent to Branderscar she made an escape attempt and had almost made it out of Matharyn but was caught by Knights of Alerion and escorted by the to Branderscar where she now awaits execution.


    @Morbis: Awesome character, I'd be happy to sub. Feel like subbing mine as well as Griffiths?

    @Frivolous: I think my character might know yours. I assume Saint Beatrices is in Talingarde, and if its in Matharyn even better. Bridget is two years older, but perhaps she was a mutual friend through Feya, and graduated before Sirin's rampage. At the very least, Bridget would know Sirin's mother's reputation due to her involvement in the theatre scene.
