Monster Bash

Game NameMonster Bash
Game SystemPathfinder
ThemePVP with a monster twist
Flavourquick action/arena
Plot SummaryThe holidays are often a slow time for long term games, so I want to offer a bit of respite, for those who will be around through the winter.

An arena, PVP game, but with a twist: You'll be playing a Monster in battle, not a PC.

Battles will be held arena style, Player vs Player, but we will compete using appropriate CR level monsters. CR 1 vs CR1, etc.. Stats will be simple, straight out of the guides, so no messy PC building, feat selections, etc.. Just grab a monster from the list, find an opponent, and go!

I'll have a variety of battlefield/arenas to choose from, and you can play as many times as you wish. Recruit others, grab some friends, and come have fun!

All players are welcome!

Dirkoth this is such an awesome concept, glad you are throwing something in that's mixing things up in the holidays.

Can we use templates or is that too much of a bother? Can I RP as a disembodied mage who keeps possessing the monsters? What's the posting rate gonna be? Can I enter (I'm bored beyond belief)? Is there some bracket system (as in: will we be kicked once we lose a match) or do we get to keep playing regardless of our success?

@Zev: Posting Rate is up to the players (I will put a note in to add that to your challenge post). I would hope daily, but I understand if some folks can't do that. As long as both parties agree to a rate, all is good.

@Zev: Stats for monsters are from the PRD.

@Sirv: Monsters must be straight out of the PRD, so... I don't think Templates will happen (i could be wrong). So, no magic jar possessions, etc.. Just grab a CRX monster, and go.

@Sirv: If you lose, you can try again, or switch monsters. It's all for fun, maybe someday we will figure out some kind of bracket system, and have a tournament, but for now: grab a goblin, and go to town.

Ooooo, this looks interesting. What are the CR limits? Upper and lower. Not going to lie, my first instinct was to ask if I could be a chicken. Why? I have no clue.

I think CR1/2 (are there lower?) is the lowest. Maybe 1/4?

Upper doesn't matter, because it's all about finding a CR match. So, if you find a CR 24 McGuffin, and someone else wants to play a CR 24 Gumptron, then all is well.

No way a Gumptron has that high of a CR right out of the books. They're 19 tops.

Can we just make Alchemicist Preservationist and use the summon monster spells to call monsters that match the Cr and treat it like a Pokemon Battle?

Pathfinder Gumptrons: they get feats every other level, and can fly.

It's debatable whether dogs have souls.

Not so much a debate on whether Dirkoth's do.

So do fighters with winged boots. 19, tops.

Okay, I got 22 different arenas set up... which is probably about 21 more than it appears I need.

Hmmm...
