I'll probably say magical since I'll mostly be using kinetic blade/whip as emergency weapons. As a kineticist, I'll have good HP (for a d8 hit die, anyway, because high Con). Just won't have much in the way of armor.

On that topic: piecemeal armor allowed? (Not asking you to convert treasure armor to piecemeal, and knowing I won't have it until we get our gear back)

*Looks into rules*

Well, that seems rather complicated. Probably not. Sorry about that.

Nothing to be sorry about. ^~^ I'll just go with a haramaki, then.

Hmm... seems like the name Divine Herbalist is the copyright-free version of the archetype. I assume it's called Pei Zin Practitioner, at least in the official version. I have no problem with you taking this archetype, though you gotta use this name since we're using official Paizo materials.

I have everything done, up to level 20 (except skills, which are just level 1). Might post my full notes (with spoilerbuttons for unnecessary stuff) soon, instead of waiting to see if I'm in the other game. Posting with the full notes so you can see how I plan to progress as the story unfolds.

Character ApplicationName: Elizabeth Vulpesca


Art by Shukun Yang
Appearance: As a fox, Elizabeth looks like...well, a typical red fox. Albeit a 31 year old red fox with human-looking eyes. The age is more apparent in human form, at least to humans. She has dark, wavy hair in human form, and animalistic brown eyes. She wears a cloak to cover most of her features, but her slight weight and short height are fairly obvious. Her clothing is otherwise simple. She is almost never in hybrid form, so as not to make people uncomfortable. She doesn't want to be seen as a lycanthrope, given their prevalence in the region.

Personality: Reserved and suspicious of outsiders, like all Ustalavs, Elizabeth also has a prankster side of her. Not all harmless pranks, either. She will play tricks to lure in prey, such as faking an injury. But she also offers sanctuary to those she sees as friends, holding them as close as her mistress once held her. She will still act in an animalistic fashion, however, when stressed.

Str 5, Dex 17, Con 18, Int 10, Wis 12, Cha 15
ASI: Dex at 4th, Con at 8th, 12th, 16th, 20th

Race: Superior Shapeshifter alternate racial traitFoxfolk (Kitsune)

Class: Favored Class Bonus: +1/6 Magical Tail 2-7, +1 skill point 1 and 8-20Kineticist

Alignment: Neutral
Deity: Brigh

Trait: Twitchy (Campaign) (+2 Init, +1 Ref)
Trait: Indomitable Faith (Faith) (+1 Will)
Trait: Among Humans (Race, Kitsune) (+2 to pass as human, disguise is a class skill)

Drawback: Tainted Spirit (After combat, DC10+(rounds acted) Fort save or be fatigued for 10 minutes per round acted)

 


 


 


 


 


 


BACKSTORY
From the city of Karcau in the Ustalavic county of Sinaria, Elizabeth was a familiar to a sorcerous witch with a transformation patron, and was later given two humanoid forms as a boon for her service to the witch and her patron. Prior to being her mistress' familiar, she had lived in the forest near Karcau, surviving just fine among the horrors, most of which were only a problem to humanoids.

The two were inseperable, and she was treated as an equal, including when the spoils were split amongst the party of mercenaries. Or at least, for show it was; she simply gave her portion to everyone else. They were annoyed at first by this companionship, but grew to enjoy her company, as well.

The fox-turned-human was granted her Ustalavic human form after the witch retired by the witch's patron, and stayed with her up to the moment of her death, including as a deathbed companion. She set out on her own after that, with what little the two still had saved up. Their former companions had all long since died, but her hometown still welcomed her as one of their own in all forms.

She is still unaware of who or what her mistress' patron was, but they seemed benevolent, save for the stripping her of most of her power as part of the reward for service. Of course, that didn't mean they were. This is Ustalav, after all. But that didn't stop her from being converted to Brigh worship by the wizard of the group, a faith she has been fascinated by since she was first "adopted."

She spent some time with a large group of foxes that roamed Karcau after her mistress' passing, and it was rumored that anyone who disrespected them went missing without a trace...a rumor she started to keep the foxes safe. They mostly stayed in her mistress' otherwise abandoned house for shelter.


(Image subject to change. There are a few other looks I'm still considering. Everything else is complete)

Edit: Finalized the pic, I think~

I was inspired by your post and I edited in a breakdown of my character building and level planning, though only up to 11th.

Alright, got it. I'll update the table soon.

Edit: Any more people interested?

Throwing my hat in with a different creation




left-aligned image

Name: Raven Knight
Race: Human
Class: Holy Tactician Paladin
Alignment: Lawful-Good
Campaign Trait: Driven By Guilt
Role/Niche: Martial / Support


 

 

 


GM PermissionsI have a few things which require GM approval. The first is the inclusion of the concept of Necropolitan as something from Raven's past. He is not undead anymore, but he was in the past. This has no effect, mechanically, but will affect his personality and character.

I also want Raven to be extremely tall. Do you take issue with me going beyond the limits of what is normally possible for humans? He will be around 7' tall (Still medium size, however).

The idea for the character is that he used to be an Anti-Paladin and since his redemption he has been allowed to begin again as a Paladin at level 1. Again, no mechanical effect, but he will struggle with his internal morality but strive to uphold the principles which were once so important to him. This will make it seem like he not actually lawful good in his thoughts as I play him, but he will always strive to choose to ACT lawful-good, which fundamentally should be what matters. A man is what he chooses to be.

I am considering alternate Half-Orc racial traits and stumbled upon Inured: Half-orcs raised by orcs often become desensitized to the violence around them. Half-orcs with this trait gain a +4 bonus on Will saving throws to avoid sanity damage caused by encountering monsters, extreme violence, or death. This racial trait replaces orc ferocity.Inured

Will you be using Sanity rules for this game? You mentioned we are starting in an insane asylum and hint at great amounts of horror and gore so I thought I might ask. Maybe some of these Will saves will be sanity rolls?

Well, I first thought to implement sanity rules just like in Call of Cthulhu games, but then that'd make the game hampered by additional mechanics. Also, I believe the adventure path itself has some kind of system or rules related to sanity and madness, so we will be using that.

And yes, anything that can help you succeed at will saves will help you greatly.

Sounds like Inured will be useless then. I think I'll go with Sacred Tattoo instead.

Thanks!
