    Default Oak's Rise of the Runelords - OOC


    Welcome all to my running of Rise of the Runelords!

    We will be running a party of four, of which I will be one unless there are any objections.

    Character creation will use standard creation rules, 20 point buy.
    Paizo classes are fine, Unchained is fine, but I'd prefer core races only please.

    I'd like to make sure the main four roles are covered to some extent (Melee, Ranged, Arcane, Divine), but there is no hard requirement for things like a trapfinding rogue or the like.

    Any questions beyond that, let me know!

    Our Heroes!
    Player Character Race Class(es) Trait Fort/Ref/Will Perception / Sense Motive
    BelGareth Ozax Human Wizard (Universalist) Scholar of the Ancients +0 / +2 / +2 +2 / +2
    DrK Hucla Thim Half-Orc Alchemist(Grenadier) Monster Hunter +4 / +5 / +1 +6 / +0
    LairdMaon Rolf SteelSong Dwarf Soulknife Monster Hunter +5 / +3 / +1 +5 / +1
    PeacefulOak Julian Human Cleric Student of the Faith +2 / -1 / +3 +3 / +7

    First challenge completed! Find the OOC thread! :P

    Thinking maybe a ranged character? Fighter and Inquisitor are nice.

    EDIT: may take the wizard spot if no one wants it.

    Yep, first level. Sorry, I should have said that.

    By the way, there is an excellent Player's Guide!

    It gives a wealth of information and character options. I encourage you to review it, and use it to inform your decision on why you are in Sandpoint at the Swallowtail Festival.

    You can pick two traits, one of which must be a campaign trait.

    Work in Progress is Hucla Thim the monster hunting half orc alchemist. Currently a generalist with a mix of bombs and melee attacks
    Any comments let me know. Need "fluff", equipment and a martial weapon.
    - With Craft fortune and ability to Take 10 and get a 24 on craft (alchemy) can I have self crafted some alchemicals?

    I think im going to take 'Scholar of the Ancients' and be that classic mage who is researching the Ancient Thassilonians.

    Or maybe I am a young Mage just released of my apprenticeship, and was forced to learn about Thassilonia during my studies....that feels better.

    1 young and stupid Universalist in bound.

    Just be something interesting to try
    Alchemist is cool. I'm down with this. Looking at mostly ranged damage dealing, I suppose?

    Yay for quoting the same post twice with different text!

    Yes, as long as it falls within your starting wealth I don't think that will be a problem.

    Ozax, budding generalist wizard fresh from graduation.

    Still need some fluff, and equipment, welcome to spell suggestions.

    I like your spell coverage. Good mix of control, buff, and situational spells.

    I'm leaning toward a soulknife... Still debating on race, though.

    Soulknife looks awesome!

    I’ll be making a cleric to accompany the group in that case, probably an Evangelist for maximum party buffing. Alternatively I could make a front line character who can take some of the shots and provide a barrier for our squishy wizard and alchemist.

    Thoughts from the group?

    I guess it depends on the soul knife style as they can be light and nimble or two handed smashers. But a battle cleric is always fun and can do a bit of both buffing and fighting

    Why thank you!

    So, I have posted the IC thread with an invitation to add some detail in your opening posts about what you might have done during the day. Feel free to make connections with each other or with townsfolk. I leave it up to you how long you've been in town (or if you're a native!), and how much you'd like to describe your day's activities.

    I have a discord if anyone feels like joining that to do some OOC or soft RP that can be summarized in a post, for those that would like to make connections with each other before the action starts.

    Oh, and don't forget to pick colors for speech.

    What did you take for your campaign trait?
    You can choose another from a different type here

    Also, what did you choose for your favored class bonus?
