My Character's Tumor Familiar gains Fast Healing 5 when attached to it's Master. If my Character added it to his Vitalist Collective, would he be able to redirect that Healing to others, or is that too OP at low levels?

Also, if there are no issues with my Application, it is complete.

Well, I've redone my build 4 times now.

It's been...interesting.

It has been a learning experience for me too. A lot to learn about Spheres, Mythic Levels, and Legendary Items. I am really hoping I get a chance to use everything I am learning. But if nothing else, it has been a fun exercise to build a character for the Wrath of the Righteous campaign.

I think I will need to scrap my original idea and start from scratch. I think she will be following trickster path eventually.

Mechanics finished up for Merriweather and should finish up/make his RP sample tomorrow assuming nothing wild happens. Mattering on what actually happens in the game the build may change but all the keystones are going to remain the same.

A clarification about taking oracle curses as drawbacks. (Not as an Oracle taking a curse.) I did not describe my intent correctly. Here is revised language:

Quote:
You gain the negative effects of an oracle curse you do not already have, but not the positive effects. This curse does not change as you level.
In particular, the curse as a drawback is really completely a drawback. In particular it does not give you a benefit from of say a Bite attack from the Hunger curse. It just gives you the penalty -- you are always sickened in combat until you bite someone. (If you take this, you'd better get a bite attack from another source or live with a permanent penalty.)

Sorry if I miscommunicated this, but if you were looking for a benefit from Oracle's Curse taken to gain a bonus feat, please reconsider whether you want to change that part of a build.

@Mundayknight, @dbaque -- I believe this may matter to your builds.

Oh, the way it works as a drawback is what I understood; I just thought the downside to hunger was only the inability to benefit from magic consumables. That initial penalty in combat, though ... probably not worth the extra 3sp over 20 levels.

As far as the bite attack, dragon transformation already comes with one, so that part is fine.

MundayKnight -

Show the calculation of total HD of animals he can train

When an animal is trained and is traveling with him (the purchased bee hive) - include in the animal description the effect of all modifiers (bonus HDs you've granted it. Include what tricks have been trained into the swarm.

Reminder: while characters can have multiple companions of various sorts, they can only adventure with one at a time. I think your intent is to go about with one powerful swarm, but keep in mind that you shouldn't try to set out in a chapter with multiples (even if the character is mechanically allowed to.) Temporary summons effects are OK for you to summon occur alongside the one companion, as long as they are short term. Remember in the rules I banned having companions that have companions or companions that summon.

For any swarm you take I will ignore "Immune weapon damage". Half of monsters primarily do weapon damage and for play balance you don't get to automatically win half of all encounters by sending in the swarm.

I am not reviewing later advancement at this time.

Otherwise, Merriweather looks good. He will compete for a healer slot and with his swarm for a melee slot.

Rictur --

So you've expressed intent to rewrite. That's up to you. I'll note that you are temporarily withdrawn until you come back with an application and ask me to review it.

Commentary:

You didn't build a Spheres character, and characters using Spheres are effectively like 1-2 levels above those who don't use Spheres.

I was intended in making some compensating advantages toward non-Spheres characters, but I was going to do that only after accepting an initial party.

Sorry if I missed it somewhere in your initial post, but what year does this take place in?

Also, having decided to take the Form of Power and Native-Born mythic boons and reading over the opening scene again, does that mean the transformation only took place after the incident at Clydwell Plaza?

Well -- I hope you enjoy the exercise more than agonize through it!

With some players choosing to build out a sketch of a full 20 levels of advancement, this character construction is itself like a mini-campaign.


While I won't be able to accept all the fine (and very effortful) characters into the game, I will come back to each person who gets declined with some opportunity to backfill if the game needs it.

Its fast healing will cap at 100% per your level of its hit points, per day. So you can use this to dole out a meaningfully amount of healing. Sound reasonable?

The date is: 4712/08/16

Military action
The First Mendevian Crusade begins to avenge the Kingdom of Sarkoris.

4629 - The Lost Chapel Was Founded
Founding
A year after Drezen was founded, and a year before the First Mendevian Crusade ended, several crusading paladins and priests built a number of chapels in the lands surrounding the new fortress city. A chapel to Iomedae was founded.

4637/07 - Aponavicius Begins Attacks On Drezen
Military action
Aponavicius leads the forces of demons to try to take Drezen. This dashes the hopes of Staunton Vhane to try to find the Sky Citadel in the Worldwound.

Military action
The second Mendevian crusade begins, which ends up constructing the Wardstones, but loses Drezen.

4638/10 - Construction On The Kenabres Wardstone Begins

4638/11/12 - Staunton Vhane Unsuccessfully Convinces The Commanders To Move The Sword Of Valor
Life, Failure / Mishap
Staunton Vhane unsuccessfully convinces the leaders of Drezen to bring the Sword of Valor out to Jerribeth. Staunton begins plotting to bring the Sword of Valor out to Jerribeth.

4638/11/13 - Staunton Vhane Brings Jerribeth The Sword Of Valor
Life, Crime
Staunton Vhane successfully steals the Sword of Valor and brings it to Jerribeth, who then takes the Sword of Valor and attacks the Citadel of Drezen.

4638/11/15 - Drezen Falls

4639/06 - The Kenebres Wardstone Is Completed
Construction beginning/end
The Kenabres Wardstone is constructed, creating a bastion against the hordes of the demons. Construction begins on multiple fortresses to house Wardstones around the Worldwound.

4644/08 - The Worldwound Wardstone Chain Is Completed
Construction beginning/end
A number of fortresses, each housing a Wardstone are completed over a period of 5 years, and, finally the network of Wardstones are completed, enclosing the Worldwound in a bubble that prevents the demons from venturing into the rest of Golarion.

4665 To 4668 - Third Mendevian Crusade
Military action
The Third Mendevian Crusade began with lots of corruption. Witch hunts were made, and the crusade quickly ended after three years.

4692 To 4707 - Fourth Mendevian Crusade
Military action
A powerful balor, Khorramzadeh, the Storm King, becomes the leader of the attacking force of the demons. He is able to damage the Wardstone at the Keep in Kenabres. However, he is grievously wounded by Terendelev, the Ancient Silver Dragon, and is driven back into the Worldwound to recover.

Would you allow a ground wasp swarm to be purchased and how much would it cost? Closest to bee swarm that Pathfinder provides so figure easy pallet swap.
Yes, but as posted elsewhere, nerfed by removing the immunity to weapon damage.

I couldn't find a comparable.

Assume 50 gp and 20 lbs of equipment you'll carry around to support a hive. Once you get extradimensional abilties, the weight goes away.

Assume 150gp more for acquisition, growing, training.

(It is an exotic purchase, and most people with a swarm would just spend the rest of their careers supplying mead halls and bakers.)

Net 200gp and its like buying a heavy warhorse. At later levels, replacing the swarm if it is destroyed will cost an amount that is increasingly insignificant but it would cost time between chapters.

The way I wrote the intro, I am encouraging players to describe their mythic transformation as something that just got triggered. That way we get to see some interesting stuff play out live in the opening several scenes...

But I'm flexible about this. If a mythic transformation has to happen earlier for your character concept to work, then that's allowed.

For example, the player coming in with a dragon (dbaque with Lunigen) could have been born that way.
