    Default Torrathian Civility: E8 Pathfinder [OoC]

    Welcome! Go ahead and call colors, talk about strategy and marching order, explain characters and discuss. I'll have a table up with colors, players, characters and sheet links up tomorrow, hopefully.

    Ceres gets green.

    Come on, could the plant really use anything else?

    If anyone has played Starbound, I'm taking a bit of inspiration from the Floran race from that game (up to and including my character portrait being fanart of said race).

    Can we get the IC link in the first post as well? I prefer to link to the first OOC page and that makes it a bit easier.

    Alexander Skylark speaks in Navy, which is the same colour as his wings.

    Edit: Also, just quickly, I can't find the demo skill on the PF Modern SRD, so I haven't put any ranks in it, any chance I can be directed to it?

    Extra Edit:
    with 20000 credits per person up front
    I take it that's already included in our WBL?

    If it was already factored in to our WBL, we were SEVERELY undergeared prior to this mission. Either way, I'm not sure how much of an opportunity we'd have had to spend it, at least not for gear we were enchanting ourselves.

    Also, what is our mercenary company's name? Ceres does not comfortably use pronouns and so certainly among those she considers friends, she will replace any instance of it/he/she/I/we/you/your/our/my/me/her/his and the pronoun forms of this and that with their antecedents (she'll still use the specifier form of this and that like the phrase "that tree").

    I'm a tiny bit familiar with starbound. The character's portiat looks pretty amazing. I wouldn't have guessed a plant portrait could look so emotional. My least favorite thing about trying to play any weird race is their inability to do facial expression. Not being able to smile sucks.
    Glizten can smile so wide his head nearly falls off, and Dobby has slightly more range of facial expressions than you. He can do exactly everything you can, and also melt into a primal, all-consuming scream of oblivion. Not that he would, he's nice.


    It is a notable day when there is someone more fully the magic mutant plant character than Glizten, but I concede my claim to the green text. How about this?

    Is this compound opposed to New Atlanta in a power struggle or is New Atlanta an aggressor in this affair. I don't want to say we're envoys if that'd immediately make the Torrathians hostile.

    If I understand correctly, the Torrathians are an invading alien force that, in the years since their arrival, schismed into civil war and are now at a truce with humanity and para-humanity, at least in this region, as they are now even less united in purpose and government than humanity at the time of the invasion.

    They haven't gone to civil war as a whole, but there are tensions between The Bash and the Sons of Stryd. The Sons are much less happy with humanity, and are alright with para-humanity as long as it's useful, while the Sons are relatively accepting of both.

    Also, I remembered recently - Roaches are a slang name for the extremely durable mutants that survived the nukes. They're not all the same, but there are a lot of them.

    I will note that the campaign's got political overtones because it's made as part of an academic project, but hopefully it's not too bad

    I'd be interested to know what the details of said academic project are.

    Anywho, I'm gonna run with "The Roaches." It fits with mercenary companies generally choosing names that are impressive and/or tough-sounding.

    It's part of a science fiction as literature class, - the requirements were extremely nebulous, and the grading highly subjective, so it basically has political things to appease the teacher. But it boils down to "make some science fiction-y"

    It's good to be able to speak with the big players. It also means that if you keep that knowledge a secret, you can eavesdrop or save yourself from assassination.
    Also, they're low on weapons are they I only have alchemical materials on my but I can literally pump out Masterwork Weapons. (No Time Increase for me, Take 10 for 27 using my gear and Crafter's Fortune, and I take half the time to craft base weapons.)

    Spoiler: Thoughts on crafting
    Show
    Looking at a basic rifle... Let's base the DC on Crossbows for 15, and add 5 because I can for 20. So, 27*20*2=1080 of progress per day, give me a week and I could make an AK-47 and 9600 rounds in a week (*20 to their progress because bullets are alchemical.), enough to arm one person a week and enough ammo to keep lots of people in the fray.

    Or I could make a Grenade Launcher (Let's keep the DC the same) in 4 days and then spend 3 days making 6480gp of grenades for it to launch, giving a side one heavily armed grenadier in a week while producing a boatload of ammo. (For reference, I could make a grenade launcher and 59 6d6 frag grenades a week for 8 hours a day, which given I only have to sleep 4 hours a day, gives me plenty of time for looking around and using my new-found favor.)

    Edit: oh, and aid another which can be made untrained gives me another 2 bonus, making those numbers even larger... I might be able to squeeze out 2 guns and a bunch of ammo each week, perhaps alternating to make it 3 rifles and 1 grenade launcher a fortnight, effectively arming a squad of troops a month. With a mission like this, we can go long term, and even if we don't stick around my work means that I'd be earning some favor.

    If per chance our preferred side actually has guns but is chronically low on ammo so they effectively have few guns, I could resolve that quickly. Hell, I could even make them masterwork ammo :p

    Also, despite correcting my ammo numbers on the fly, those numbers should also be bigger, because being alchemical means I get a +5 to that skill roll compared to my craft weapon.


    I've been silly, I could just craft grenades and alchemical blades for close quarters fighting and be really really fast. Sure, they'd lack a range advantage, but like I said, if they have guns but not ammo I could do some correcting of that easily to get us some favor.

    How familiar would the Torrathians be with magic? Even if I don't know their current situation (they may have developed such in the intervening time), did they use any magic during the war? Basically, how likely are they to have people who have ranks in spellcraft?

    As far as you know, magic was a nonfactor in their missile redirection (which was basically the entirety of the "war"). However, magic has proven itself to be not exclusive to humans, so they've probably got some.
