Hello fellow innmates. It has been some time since I've hosted a game, and now that I am relatively unattached to any other posts, I have decided that it is time to add my own pathfinder campaign into the fray. So I suppose I'll begin by saying that I have run this campaign with my circle of friends, and it had a great mixture of adventure, combat, stealth, and problem solving. The premise of the game is quite simple, as the objective is solid the whole way through. So with that, I suppose I shall explain the game a bit more.
The King's Blades. That is what you are. An elite force assembled with one purpose in mind. You are to counteract any and all attempts to subvert the army of Alaron in their march to the Gates of Malavar.
Malavar is the Throne City to the Emperor of Volderos, a foul country that has conquered and enslaved neighbouring countries. The might of the Alaron army is unquestionable in all the northern lands, and they have beaten back the Volderi aggressors time and again. However, whenever it seems as though the tide of battle has shifted in the favour of the righteous, the Volderi use their wealth of foul magics, assassins, even deals with the devils, to stay the hand of defeat.
The King of Alaron has had enough of the constant skirmishes on his borderlands. He tires of losing allies, men he had called brothers. After raising a call to arms, from every lord in his northern domain, a call for the greatest host the land of Elus had ever seen, he spoke to his most trusted adviser, the man he entitled the "High General". Scour the kingdom, he said, and find me the most worthy of agents, those that might put in check the nefarious ways of our Volderi foe. Our army will march south until the heads of the Imperial hellspawn adorn our pikes. Yours will be the might of my hand, and they shall be my blades. They shall bring the might of my host to bear upon this vile land, and see it is cleansed of treachery, of madness.
I know you've already said Pathfinder, so already you have my interest. I just have a couple questions I need answered. What starting level will the PCs be, how are you wanting to handle ability score generation, how much starting gold if we are above 1st level, and any restrictions to race and class?
Right now I'm at work and not in front of the books, however I can answer a good deal of these questions. The starting level will be third. Stats will be decided either by an rdinn dice roll that you email me. Or you can use the standard buy. 15 points, it's in the pathfinder book, but if anyone needs that explained I can. You may choose any race or class that can start as a level one character, and not have any racial hit dice. However, that being said, this is a non-evil aligned campaign. So keep that in mind during creation.
Starting gold will be the same as in the book for level three, which I can edit in later. Oh, and I can get ahold of any class and variant desired. So feel free to experiment. I'm hoping to find five or six players, and it would be well advised to have a healer, rogue, and magic user with some dedicated skills.
I'll be working on a q&a later on tonight. Hope this helps.
I have access to quite a few books, that's why I asked about the race and class restrictions, I have a copy of the Advanced Race Guide, and was thinking of maybe toying with one of the "featured races" as an option. I haven't decided on a class just yet, the race will likely play a big part in that choice.
Okay, my ever evolving back story is beginning to mold itself into a shape less like poo, and a little more like fantasy! It's in the Q&A if anyone wants to venture a look, I've also linked the two threads together for your shopping convenience. Any takers? Feel free to sign up here. Any questions? Over There!
Have a nice day my fellow innmates.
All right. I didn't want to have to do this. But anyone willing to join (in this most excellent setting) shall receive, one Canadian penny! After all, they've stopped making them. So it's like a collectors item. Only 65 billion of them in the world!
I've had little to do with pathfinder. Ignoring it's existence almost so I didn't get sucked into another system however I think I should probably do what everyone keeps telling me to do in this respect. If you're willing to throw me a rope and walk me through until I get the hang of it then I'm in.
As long as you are even remotely familiar with 3.5 D&D then PF will be a breeze to pick up. Ayrn already provided the link to the SRD page in your introductory thread, and you can find any and all information you'll need to make whatever character you desire. Be it the standard iconic Human Fighter or something more exotic like my Ifrit Inquisitor.
