Will see if I have an inspiration for this in the next day or so, but I just wanted to give a hat-tip to the Perenne underboss, because The Departed is a fantastic film.

Just out of curiosity, since I'm planning on going sword and pistol,
  • Does Two Weapon Fighting and Rapid Shot stack?
With Rapid Shot as a requirement for the currently uncertain if I'll get itSword & Pistol feat and obtaining Two Weapon Fighting through Swashbuckler(Picaroon), I figured it might come up later on. <shrug>

For some reason it never really occurred to me that Imveros actually played games on here.

By RAW they should stack, for a total of 3 attacks (1 sword, 2 pistol) at a -4 to all. However, you won't be able to reload your pistol without a free hand. You could keep a dozen double pistols on your person and quick draw them I guess, but what you'll probably want is a third "hand" of some kind (tail, hair, juggling).

It would probably be more practical to forgo all that and just take Point-Blank Master to do normal two-weapon fighting with your sword/pistol. Get a Beneficial Bandolier to keep it loaded.

@Preacherwolf - Will languages play a role in this game, or will everyone just speak common? Common keeps it simple for sure, and you can always just use bonus languages as etiquettes.

It's the blessing/curse of having settled in to several multi year running campaigns. It's uncommon for the dance card to free up, but I just had a long term game fade out and who can resist the sirens call of a hub based campaign right in the sweet spot of Pathfinder power levels?

LOL nice. I can also verify that Imveros is a player in at least one game. I'm in a game with him.

Thanks for pointing out Point-Blank Master. I was already planning on taking the 4th level Fighter when we gain 9th level in-game. And Point-Blank Master is much less feat-heavy compared to Sword & Pistol.

As for reloading, I was already planning on going extra guns+Beneficial Bandolier+Rapid Reload+Kick Up. Effectively, drop sword to reload then Kick sword back up into hand when finished. ...or surrender and then kick up weapons into hands for surprise

I know, it's kind of situational, and Kick Up requires the Acrobatic feat, but... <shrug>

Anyway, thanks for the useful suggestion and pointing out the feat. It's sooooo easy to miss good feats in the pile of them that Pathfinder provides

I can also attest to Imveros being alive and kicking on the site. Actually in a game of his and it managed to survive the year end slowdown without loosing a single player...it seemed like it was close though

Something curious while writing up on my background. I wanted to use the name of this city we're going to be playing in my background and you never come right out and say the name of the city. The map says it's Parsantium or is it La Cosa Nostra from the title?

Notably Swashbuckler levels count as Fighter levels for feat prerequisites. So you could have Point-Blank Master by level 5 before even dipping into Corsair.

Azrael SeraphAZRAEL SERAPH
right-aligned image

Race: Aasimar
Age: 32
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Class: Sorcerer 8

Description:
Tall and lean with hair and eyes of shining gold. A handsome, sharply dressed fellow who would not look out of place in high society. While not of noble blood he has a nobility of bearing, of speech and of gaze which belies a heritage far more grand than any mortal aristocracy could hope to emulate. While a charming demeanour and disarming smile usually serve to navigate most situations, when expecting trouble the only addition to his clean cut ensemble is a small quiver of arrows worn beneath his cloak.

 


The Line:
Senseless murder. Mob justice may be swift and it may be brutal, it may not be proportional and there may not be due process, but it is justice of a sort. People get what's coming to them but only if they've got it coming. A mafioso does not kill for fun and he does not kill for frivolous reasons like 'he looked at me funny'. That is what separates a mafioso from a common street thug.

What do you, the player, want:
I want to play mafia in a fantasy setting, which is something I don't think I've ever seen outside of Discworld, and every good mafia family needs a good mob lawyer! Even if the party never ends up on trial I'll still enjoy being a face character threatening litigation, redefining bribes as 'personal charitable donations' and twisting language around in knots. There's a lot of fun to be had with a sky high Bluff skill but he should be no slouch in combat either and I'm pretty keen to try out this 'heal the party with fire' mechanic I've discovered.

The City's name is Parsantium, La Cosa Nostra is just the title of the game and mafia in real life.

Techincally yes, they stack. However you need a free hand to reload a firearm so I'm not sure how you'd be able to pull it off. Double barrel firearms do exist, but after one round you're up a very specific creek again.

Languages will play a role, as secret or obscure languages serve as a good cover for messages. Plus certain Mob families take pride in their culture and heritage, case in point The Il Basso Family are all related to halflings or pure blood halflings, so the Halfling Language is predominante among them

Also, Its going to be hard to pick here. Sometime this week, probably wednesday, I'll go through and ask a few questions/give feedback on everyone's submissions but I love everything so far

Thanks for the confirmation on the city name, and yea, there is no way around the fact that there will be times when Sam will only have a rapier/shortsword and an empty pistol to fight with... hmm,
  • Could I use the Catch Off-Guard feat I got from the Cad fighter archetype to use the empty pistol as an improvised melee weapon?
I also plan on having Sam use Intimidate/Bluff plus the Dirty Trick, Disarm, & Trip Combat Maneuvers in combat so I should be able to find the time to use a move action now and then to reload one barrel+that bandoleer. Too bad you can't use Combat Maneuvers with Two-weapon Fighting as the Magus does with spells <shrug>
