Oh right, the craft skill. <THWAP!> I'm going to give myself a concussion with all the times I keep making myself in the head for being stupid

I got poison use through the Ninja class so that's covered. I'm uncertain how much my character is going to be using poisons but since it's an option for Gorda I figured I should use it. And thanks for the tip about the Master Alchemist feat.

The final tally The visitors to Sweetwater from Nesterak are Gorda Iron and Grumm Turkin.

Demanding to see the Mayor and Bart (Rhymes's contact in this city that sees few Molekin and Orcs) they are brought to a table, in a casino, high in the city.

The mayor is a grossly obese dwarf, so corpulent as to be virtually spherical.

He is seated beside a smirking man in a feathered cap. This one, this matches the description. The one who, Rhymes said, rescued him from enslavement to madness here in this very city. Centinela the city was called of old, but now the Azerkans call it Sweetwater.

Playing cards with them is a plain-clad man with elaborate tattoos upon his neck. He stands, as if he going to protect the other two from any threat the orc and molekin would pose. Not that they are inclined to ... quite a few of the town's citizens look as formidable as many of the strong folks in Nesterak.

"Got a message from Rhymes, and he's says you'd best listen," says the orc-blooded woman.

"Well now, don't you be just blurting it out," says the wizard. "Dust yourself off. Have a seat. Bart's folks'll see you get a drink. I haven't heard that accent, oh, for some time. This hear is Doctor Halloway, I'm Gordy. And you are?"

Gorda Iron and Grumm Tarkin introduce themselves -- and begin their story.

The Final Tally Again

Thanks everyone for proposing characters and participating in this competition! Your talent and creativity is much appreciated. I'll keep declined players in mind in case we need backfill.

Please post the following to the accepted character's folder, and we will continue the finalization of builds.
  • Rhaiber - as Doctor Prudence Goodfellow
  • mightymconeshot - as Captain Bart Cobbe
  • Exhibit A - as Grumm Turkin
  • Silk - as Gorda Iron
  • Taleteller50 - as Doctor Henry Joseph Bennett
  • MundayKnight - as Ezra Lane
  • SelfAwareNPC - Doctor Godfrey Halloway

As we landed three doctors, think about how you'll differentiate away from each other a bit perhaps by tweaks to your characters. Two Consensus and one Alternative already puts Doctor Godfrey Halloway on a different path.

SelfAwareNPC - you squeaked in because you were in the Healer slot, but other healers got admitted first into other slots, so you were the last contender left standing in Healer.

@TriedTheRest -

To reactive Artemix's candidacy, a few things.

- Let's start at level 8. I'm finding some characters that use Spheres can seriously over-power some characters built straight with core pathfinder.

- Keep in mind a couple of characters are anti-magical in nature. They will refuse buffs they offer you. This is a matter of their religious faith & philosophy -- not personal animosity, so don't take offense.

- You'd probably be written in to the current primary encounter (a large / complicated battle), arriving at a time and place where you'd be welcome. A couple scenarios that we might work with are:

1) Natives (of a generally hostile tribe) wanted to understand an augury that posed a threat to their tribe. You found reason (perhaps a desire to research something of their totemic magic?) to help them out, under flag of truce.

OR

2) You were captured by hostile natives: when they came under attack by apocalypse zombies, one of them showed a noble gesture-- rather than risk you being killed while bound by hateful undead, they set you free even though you were an enemy.

OR

3) ... possibly some other idea ?

Let's revise your application, fill in any missing pieces, then ping me.

Greetings!

I can take one backfill player+character into the party. I'll give it week max before deciding, so Wed May 25.

The intro to the world, and the character build rules are here: https://www.rpgcrossing.com/showthread.php?t=193607

The game folder is tidied up: https://www.rpgcrossing.com/forumdisplay.php?f=18382

A starting thread that accepted player will merge into is here: [URL="https://www.rpgcrossing.com/showthread.php?t=222278"[/URL]

The current party is:
  • Prudence: 6th level spheres investigator/scholar: area effect blaster, skillmonger single-target save-or-suck, and healer
  • Ezra: 6th level spheres incanter, a blaster with teleports and some element abiltiies
  • Bart: 7th level fighter/rogue: melee, fearmonger, face skills - with animal companion
  • Artemix: 8th level wizard / arclord: general spell support, artificer - with magical companion

There is not any particular critical gap in this team in terms of skills and abilities. In terms of storytelling, the party could benefit from a local guide to Nesterak.

Current situation: after a difficult journey, a group of companions from the town of Sweetwater has arrived at Nesterak, the city-state of the invincible overlord.

Sweetwater is a frontier town, strategically located along a pass through a mountain range, and the northern most outpost of the steam-tech nation of Azerka. Azerka is a human and dwarf dominated democratic republic, with power divided between an elected representative senate, a militarized arcane society called the MageCorp, and the Church (a pro-technology, magic-is-sin institution).

Sweetwater and the northern frontier is menaced by zombie apocalypse, infectious and malevolent, rampaging the countryside. The adventurers have tracked down the source, the mystic theurge Idious, presently hold up in the temple of Tho-Tarr. Idious is undead, a spectre to be precise; in life he was an Apekin, a race who once dominated the south and held humans as slaves until a revolutionary war a century ago. So Idious is bent on destructive vengeance, and must be stopped.

Nesterak Citadel is an orc city-state, barbaric, but held together by a powerful warlord. A colony of gelatinous fiends lives here, as do some Apekin. It is cold-war hostile to Azerka. As a lawful-evil city that holds slaves and traffics with fiendish creatures, it is politically, culturally and religiously at odds with the Azerkan nation.

There is a map of the city state here:

If a place could be found for her introduction to the party I'd be interested in re-submitting Kayahn.

https://www.rpgcrossing.com/showthre...14#post9358614

Otherwise I can give it some thought after some sleep, see if any ideas speak to me.
