New Pantheon of Ardein

Game NameNew Pantheon of Ardein
Game SystemPathfinder
ThemeMythic Sandbox, Deific Politics and Realm Building
FlavourGods, high-powered fantasy, roleplay and downtime heavy, possible mythic outerplanar adventures, and universe customization.
Plot Summary
The world of Ardein, while not young, is ever-growing. Flush with all forms of life, both mundane and fantastical according to a mortal's point of view. Some creatures have grown in individual skill and power to surpass their kin. You and those like you have been honored and revered by the peoples that you came from. Even when your mortal bodies were exhausted by age, passed the bounds of mortality by self-improvement, or began traversing the planes by your own will; your will had not waned, and your people's belief in you had not as well.

Whatever the circumstance, none have become a petitioner, or become apart of another being's realm. Instead you found the belief in your person sustained you to some youth, and has maintained your power and sanity. Years had passed since you have passed into the ranks of demi-gods. On this day, your person had been summoned into the realm of the Mother God of Ardein, Telari. In this realm of nature and passing seasons, under the shade of a colossal tree, you and others are ordained to be new gods for the mortal realm. You have not yet gained enough experience to control more than a single domain of divinity, but that domain itself is enough power to bar your physical form from ever leaving the outer planes.

Your goal, is to expand your realm, extend your powers to your believers and receive those that believe in, and have died in your name to your realm.

InformationRules: We are currently using the feat tax rules and any non 3rd party resource on d20pfsrd
Attributes: 25-point-buy
Starting Wealth: 530,000 gp, a greater share of this aught to have been spent on your legendary item.
Starting Followers: Those that fear or are inspired by your name once were many in life. Your name is yet spoken on their lips but must be rekindled. Your starting amount of mortal followers (to be rolled in the in-game thread) will be 20d6.
Leadership: The leadership feat can be chosen as normal. However, the followers were incapable of joining your character on their journey. If a player selects this feat they will have their cohort with them in the planes. All followers they would've had would be added to the beginning pool of devout followers one would start with, but they are on the material plane.
World Information: Here
The Major Pantheon
Religions of Ardein
 

 

 

Divine AbilitiesAs a god, even a local one such as yourself, you are granted a host of abilities to be used on your person and, of course, through your devout. The ability to use these powers, or the host of powers available to use through your followers will grow as your worship spreads, however your character will begin to lose much freedom in traversing the planes as your powers become too much for more natural worlds.
 

 

 


ApplicationName:
Race: Any race, playable or not. If you wish to be a troll or some other monstrous race we can determine together the attributes or ECL used on this creature.
Domain: You gain one domain as the cleric ability. Even if you are of a martial class you can use the domain abilities as a cleric of your character level and each of the spells granted 1/day as a spell-like ability.
Alignment: Any
Class: 18 effective character levels. If you are a monstrous race, some of these levels will be spent on race levels.
Mythic Class: You have 1 level in mythic tier
Appearance: If you use a picture, please have a text description
Legendary Item: Your character starts with one minor artifact as of the mythic rules. This item must be of some importance to your character and their new godly domain. I.e. a god of artifice wielding a legendary forge hammer or a god of magic with a wand or staff.
Personality: Include a couple passages about goals/ambitions.
Background: Aught to be long and telling about your mortal adventures and what fate allowed your character to enter the planes to traverse there up until ascension.

What is the DM looking for?
  • 4-6 good players.
  • No focus on class or party balance. Every good app could be a cyclops rogue of the same domain and they could all get in.
  • Some foresight as to what your character's divine goals would be.
  • All apps to be completed by August 9th, of this year.

Oh, this sounds really interesting!

How would you like applications to work? General character description?

Edit - Or I could wait until you finish posting too, hehe. Sorry about that.

Name: Drakkor Shadowmire
Race: Dhampir
Domain: Darkness
Alignment: CN
Class: 8th level Rogue/10th level Shadowdancer
Mythic Class: Stranger
Appearance: 6' medium build. Light brown wavy hair down to his shoulders, with brown eyes. A very handsome man, more so than most humans and his skin is slightly darken, almost exotic like, but in the sunlight, it looks like he has bruises. He moves with fluid grace that seems unnatural, when he laughs fully, you can see that he has elongated incisors. Chain shirt like armor, a sword sheathed at his left hip and a dagger sheathed at each thigh and at each rib.
right-aligned image

Legendary Item: Belt of Shadowform

Personality: He carries himself well with confidence, gets along well with others, although he has trouble trusting others. Seems many are friendly for a price and some would have a bad reaction once they knew what he was, so he tends to stay back a bit, letting others mingle first. He doesn't get overly excited, staying calm through most situations. An even-tempered man, but do not cross him, for you will be marked. At the same time, once you have him for a friend, you got a friend for life.

Name: Arcata
Race: Human
Appearance: Arcata still looks very much as she did while a mortal, slim and fair, with golden hair and blue eyes inherited from her ancestry in the north. Since her apotheosis her eyes have taken on a deep glow, and her beauty has only been magnified as the imperfections of mortality dripped away. She dresses in elegant white clothes whenever it's possible, enjoying rich fabrics imbued with minor magical effects. Her gown has subtle embroidery all over it, like a tiny labyrinth of stitches barely visible unless looking very closely. Never far from her hand is the Eternal Torch; a life's work in more ways than one. It is a staff made in rough replica of the Whitespire carved with painstakingly detailed hand from white ash. Her familiar, a mischievous fairy dragon is often perched on or near her as well...though is just as often off on some errand, or just playing.

Domain: Magic
Alignment: Neutral Good
Class: Arcanist 18
Mythic Class: Archmage
Legendary Item: "The Eternal Torch" (Staff of Power)
Arcata carries a staff that was crafted in tandem with the construction of Whitespire, intimately connected to the massive tower's ability to focus magic from the world around it and circulate it to make virtually miraculous internal features. The Eternal Torch is both a symbol of the ideals of Whitespire, and a physical artifact that can tap into the vast powers that the tower collects and distributes. It is moreover a failsafe; a key that can shut those spells down, should the power of Whitespire ever be turned to nefarious ends.

Personality: Even with her mortality shed, Arcata still feels and acts like nobility. She strives to keep her reserve and behave elegantly, though when excited or passionate about a subject that can fail her. She despises dirt, and sweat, and bad smells, but finds comfort in the trappings of wealth...high quality materials and craftsmanship that remind her of the home she grew up in. She takes the responsibilities of nobility very seriously as well, taking the well-being of those she considers her 'subjects' personally. Arcata enjoys a spirited debate or argument, and while she loves logic puzzles and thought games, she finds riddles to be rather trite...a commoner's version of a noble pursuit.

Beyond gems or gold, Arcata values the fulfillment of a person's potential, and she despises those things that keep people back from that. Be it unjust laws or traditions, ignorance and lack of education, or the bullying of peers or those who would set themselves above others.

Tarena, Lady of the Green and Guardian of the Leshy
left-aligned image
Tarena
Lady of the Green and Guardian of the Leshy
Vine Leshy, Female, Neutral Good
Druid 18 // Hierophant (Tier 1)

Domain: Plant
Legendary Item: Custom item which will be headband of mental superiority+6, natural armor +5, evergreen pouch, some plant related abilities like speak with plants, uses of entangle, sickening entangle, thorny entanglementCrown of Thorns

Appearance
A distinct smell of jasmine permeates the air around her as she strides gracefully forward from the jungle, the vines and plants swaying around her as if clearing a path for her. Her form while humanoid and feminine at initial glance has a distinctive otherworldness to it as you take I the tightly wound vines that appear to make up her form, shifting as if they have a mind of their own and her hair is long narrow leaves that drape down past her shoulders. Her eyes are eyes are an empty blackness with only the barest glint of moisture on then to even make you aware they are there, and there appears to be little else to her that is noticable other that green crown of thorns that she wears upon her head. The leaves and vines can be supple or firm as she needs them to be, and at times when it suits her mood she has pale pink or white little flowers that bloom.

Personality
There are few enough things that she cares about outside the realm of that which is green and growing, but her years upon the material plane of existence has given her a soft spot for those that work the fields and harvest nature's bounty in a sustainable fashion. The plants want to be useful, as much as they are beautiful, and to sacrifice some of their being to sustain the needs of others is part of the great cycle of life. She enjoys the company of those that understand these concepts and finds joy in sharing the beauty of the natural world with them and others so they might experience such wonders. Things that anger her are those that recklessly harm nature for no reason at all or those that pervert the laws of nature such as the living dead and the ones that create them. While she has been steadily expanding her portfolio to encompass all plant and tree life she has aspirations to include animals and insects as well, they are an important part of the cycle and she feels they should fall under her sway.

Thanks for the interest. The opening post is yet incomplete and I will get to it tomorrow. Yes it is high powered/mythic but that is what being a divine being is about. I was considering gestalt, but with how another campaign theme that was heavy inspiration for this one,
I saw it was much ability bloat and little application.

Also if anyone gives me a convincing argument for Path of War content exclusively, I could find it in my heart to allow limited 3pp.

The Harmonious Blade
left-aligned image
The Harmonious Blade
Darius Thurston, Male, Chaotic
Good
Bard 18 // Trickster (Tier 1)

Domain: Freedom
Legendary Item: Grace - Even to the untrained eye, the bard’s lute is a product of supreme craftsmanship. Its Greenwood frame is always polished to a spotless gleam as whirling shapes and patterns that appear cast from pure mithril are inlaid upon its body, though the patterns never seem to have the same pattern every day. As talented and convincing as Darius is by himself, he seems to become larger than life when the lute is in his hands, and those who have seen his performances could were almost certain that there was a second person on-stage joining in…

Appearance
Darius has the pale complexion one would expect from someone who was the product of a rather…unhappy union as he was, though despite being over 80 years old, the dhampir’s porcelain-like face shows no sign of age, as unlined and flawless as it was when he was still in his 20’s. The skin stands in stock contrast to the shock of messy black hair atop his head that never seems to care to be tamed, no matter how much effort he attempted to put into it so in the last decade or two, he has let it do as it pleased, only intervening with scissors when it threatened to grow out of control. A pair of dark blue eyes peer out from under the long fringe, usually glinting in dry amusement or alive with the excitement of a performance.

The dhampir’s lanky frame is usually clad in a long grey coat hanging over a black shirt and black pants, all of which have seen a fair share of travels – handmade fixes and stitches dot his clothing, though they’re always clean and as neat as they can be, and he wears no visible armour. Slung across his back in a leather holster is his lute, and crossed behind it is a scabbard bearing a well-cared-for rapier.

Personality
A study in contrasts, Darius seems to be split into two personalities – the person he is on-stage and who he is in private. On-stage, he is every bit the showman one would expect from a skilled bard, all smiles and melodious song with the occasional playful wink at an adoring audience member – his only goal seems to be ensuring the atmosphere is one where everyone can enjoy themselves.

Off-stage, the bard usually travels in solitude and is a much simpler man. He rarely uses the vivacious, booming charm that his public persona is associated with and people usually find the bard to be quiet, with a slightly sarcastic, cynical bent to him – everything in the world is a trade-off, someone must lose something somewhere for another to gain and blatant charity and goodness are usually viewed with slight suspicion. However, he does have a soft spot for do-gooders with their hearts in the right place, and those truly striving to change something for the better, or to fight an oppressive system, will find an unlikely-but-unwavering ally in the bard.

App complete on the hard partying, wild fighting Siegred.

Character Concept
right-aligned image

Name: Siegred
Race: Human
Domain: Glory
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Class: Warpriest 18
Mythic Class: Champion

Appearance:
Standing just shy of six feet tall, Siegred is an immensely broad and powerfully built man with platinum blonde hair and a full beard. His face has the appearance of a butcher's block - scar tissue surrounds his blue eyes, his nose was clearly broken once but healed badly, and he has a variety of small scars on his face. When he smiles, you can see that his front two teeth are missing. His helm is fearsome in appearance, shaped to appear as a roaring dragon complete with horns. He wears a massive finely crafted breastplate of dwarven origin, and in his hands he carries a monstrous axe with the head stylized to appear as if the blades are coming out of a clenched fist. He wears a loose, weathered looking shirt and a pair of simple brown pants. Sturdy looking boots with magical symbols sewn into them adorn his feet. Over his shoulders he wears a red cape lined with bear fur that has strange symbols sewn along the edges.

Legendary Item: Honor's Hand, his massive greataxe. Crafted by legendary dwarven forgesmiths, this Special Abilities - Impact and Speed. Minor Artifact - Foe-Biting.adamantite +5 greataxe is well known for its powerful blows and ferocious speed. Its unique appearance of a clenched fist as part of the axe head makes it immediately recognizable to all who see it.

Personality:
Siegred likes to do everything to the extreme. The bigger, the better. Whether it's a desperate life or death battle, a seven course meal, or to see who can drink the most beer in one sitting, Siegred is all in. If there's a chance for fun and recognition, he is there - especially because he lacks skill in long term planning. He works hard and plays hard, and often tries to combine the two as much as possible. He does what he thinks is right according to his own personal code of honor, and thumbs his nose at anyone who tries to tell him what to do. He cares little for material possessions outside of what he can carry on his back and what is actually useful to him - experiences and stories to tell around the campfire while holding a tankard are far better. He is a big fan of tall tales and the more he tells his stories the more fantastic they become. After all, once you die only the stories and tales of you shall remain so best to make them sound as wonderful as you can. He has a deep respect for the fighting-man (or woman) and will gladly share an ale with any man who crosses steel with him. Firm women and fine food are also weaknesses of his, and he will gladly indulge in either if given the chance. He is ambitious and courageous, but in many ways is still a bit immature as his carousing and juvenile antics can tend to be. Siegred is not the intellectual sort - though certainly no fool, he cannot read more than a few pages before he gets antsy and needs to move around. He also has an utter disdain for cowardice in battle - what sort of person can run from a fight and still call himself a man? Best to die on your feet like a warrior than on your back like a turtle. He also tends to roll his eyes at the "holier than thou" types who condemn drinking, fighting, and basically anything Siegred considers a good time. He likes women and would love to settle down and sire some sons, but the thought of being tied down to any one woman or place is absolutely terrifying to him.

Name: Lorrick Hireldrim
Race: Gnome
Domain: Protection Domain
Alignment: Neutral/Good
Class: Summoner
Mythic Class: Archmage
Appearance: Lorrick has always been youthful looking, even for a gnome, and rather than fighting against it, Lorrick has joyfully leaned into it. He wears baggy clothes, and oversized accessories (like hats). However, his eidolon is Butterbean, the Gryphon, and Butterbean is really the primary focus of the eye, as Lorrick is nearly always riding between his shoulders.
Legendary Item: Aegis Shield.
Personality: Lorrick hides a keen intelligence behind a charmingly youthful and disarming personality. He's bubbly and friendly until someone makes it clear that they are working contrary to his interests, at which point he will turn on them with a ruthlessness that can leave some breathless. He's constantly searching for new ways to make his best friend, Butterbean, more powerful and better protected, and this can result in him being a bit absentminded as his mind spins concepts and theories about magical or practical improvements that he's come up with, mentally stress testing them before using his friend as a test subject.
Background: Lorrick was apprenticed very young, as the gnomish community he was from had little to keep him interested once his magical power showed. Apprenticed to a dwarven war wizard, his master found him confounding at every turn, as Lorrick showed no aptitude for the usual offensive spells, and somehow he was always accompanied by a baby gryphon. Despite the wizard's best efforts, Lorrick managed to continue his research into summoning, and eventually, the dwarf recognized the potential benefits of having a malleable, summonable creature at one's command. Once they achieved a detente, and his master recognized Lorrick's talent for research, the two worked together for years, with Lorrick going on periodic adventures (which he termed research and funding expeditions). Through the years, a small community formed around the tower they called home, and Lorrick took it upon himself (and Butterbean) to foster their development, and ensure their safety. As Lorrick grew in power, and word spread of his largesse, so too did the community grow, until a thriving small city had developed. And since it would be impossible for Lorrick to meet all the people in a small city, his legend grew, until little shrines started to pop up around the city, marked by rude carvings of Butterbean with a tiny majestic rider. Though he initially discouraged the practice, as the years went on, and the shrines continued to show up, he eventually came to accept them. Then, on another research and funding venture, hidden beneath a shield with a beautiful, snake-haired woman's face on the front, he found an ancient tome that spoke of the secret to immortality. Despite his youthful appearance, Lorrick was beginning to feel his age, and he read with interest about the mechanism described. He cleared the top floor of his tower and built the machine. With his best friend at his side, Lorrick activated the machine, and... nothing. No change. Shrugging his shoulders, he turned to deactivate the machine, only to be distracted by a noise outside the tower. Finding a crowd gathered, he went outside to deal with them, and forgot all about the machine. One thing lead to another, and he and Butterbean were off on another "research and funding expedition", the machine still running. Six hundred and sixty-six hours later, a beam of energy blasted out of the tower, aimed squarely for the Aegis shield, which hung on Butterbean's saddle, and struck the two of them. Suddenly, Lorrick knew the location of every one of the shrines in the city, and the number of people who had made an offering or offered a prayer. He felt every fiber of his being charged with the primal energies of the universe, and upon his return to the tower, he found himself in possession of new, godlike abilities. Using these newfound abilities to renew his commitment to protecting the city outside his tower, he spent the next several years actively participating in its development and expansion.
