You take the mwk. weapon or 300 gp of potions and scrolls in addition to starting wealth.

And to be fair, those very specific beings are rather prominent in this campaign

Right.

After going over the EMS archetype again and in hopes that every npc is a Lovecraftian horror in disguise I've decided to go with it.

I'v also invested points in all Knowledge skills except Nobility, Local and Nature.

Are there any specific languages that such a scholar might wish to learn or is just Aboleth?

Oh, languages, good point. Since our past is undefined... would it be cheesy to go with Aboleth as second language? Or do you wanna define the second language for Victoria, Sass?

Half the creatures mentioned in that archetype speak Aklo.

Now when we don't see a single mythos abberation for the first 3 books I'm gonna feel like a real dick for even brining it up.

Thorsten is dead on, though. Aklo is an ideal choice. Ancient Osirion would be funny but probably of no use whatsoever.

I was kind of hoping they'd implement a language in the vein of R'lyehian as-and I don't know why- but I figured Aklo was more of an elemental language but after reading up on it I see that it's from the Cthulhu mythos and other similar fictions, so expect me to be fluent in it by the end of the year.

It seems, unless one of you folks is throwing in a curveball, that I am the only class that gives UMD by default. My charisma is no bueno so I'm thinking of picking up Pragmatic Activator as my second trait to use my considerable intelligence bonus for it. Is my thinking off here?

Hey, Sass. Where do we stand on the availability of Major Drawbacks? I saw two ayes, one nay and one non-committal shrug. Could help me plan a bit if I know how many feats I can start with.

Oh, major drawbacks. Totally forgot about those. Wanted to read through them again.

You could always pass on Psychic Investigator for Empiricist.

I'm taking a major drawback (Blatant), so that adds another Aye to the pot.

Believe me, I am chafing at missing out on those sweet bonuses. Empiricist is mega broken for an investigation focused character. But I've taken it on a character I am currently playing so I am going for flavor this time. Less Holmesian logical deduction, more Marloweesque instinct. The sleuth archetype has always really called to me, despite it being arguably a bad exchange, but a psychic detective just feels properly Mythos for this AP.

Aklo and Elder Speech would both be suggestable; Aboleth is flavorful, but wouldn't necessarily be useful in this campaign. Ancient Osiriani is flavorful too, and will be useful but not direly so; there will be plenty of characters that we can use that know these tongues. That said, I can make some minor alterations....

I mean, I'm misleading you all into thinking we're playing Strange Aeons when in fact we're playing Ponyfinder

I can confirm that we will see Aberrations very, very soon into the game. And often. But they aren't the only creature Lovecraft throws out, so be aware of that. Abs feature heavily but are not alone.

Judging from the popularity, I think we're going with Major Drawbacks. Go forth!

Well, that's a way to make the m'ladies and the m'fair sirs lose their minds.

In more ways than one

I count two completed characters of five. How can I help you lot who haven't got the done button from me?
