Yes and now I’m stealing it. In any case Warden is in charge of the town guards all around the empire. Basically a bit like head of the FBI or police chief with the minor addition that sometimes your guards deal with attacking goblins, spiders, etc... The Warden and the General would work closely since the army is under the General and they deal with large national scale threats but also have the forces to clear out a tribe of goblins.

Always loved the Kingmaker theme for games but never had much luck in a long term game using the ideals. The Video Game was good but you couldn't really get some of the more imaginative ideas worked into it.

I have a few ideas for characters but wanted to check with you Ysolde about which one you would like to see.

A Cleric dedicated to a God of Commerce and Civilization:
-Not the most interesting idea but would allow me to break out theories on economics and accounting. Role - High Priest or Treasurer.

A Goblin Gingerbread Witch named Cookie who wants to become the Worlds Greatest Cook and Taste Everything:
A very amusing character who's a lot of fun. Role - ROYAL COOK!!! (With a possible side line as Treasurer or Magister if such tasks were needed).

A Charming Criminal Mastermind trying to build up his own criminal empire while assisting the kingdom:
- A rather deep character with an interesting background drenched in political intrigue. Role - Treasurer, Council, or Grand Diplomat.

A shy Strix Witch with a connection to the dead who was once the pet of the Badit King before being rescued by Merina Istara:
-Despite her introverted nature she is a sweet girl just wanting to help those who rescued her. Role - Magister but could act as a Spy Master in a pinch.

So which do you think you'd like to see Ysolde? I'll ask the other players too if anyone would like to make a suggestion.

I love the idea of putting the royal cook on the council table, and the strix witch concept seems like it's got great backstory potential. ...and they don't give me more competition, which is super

Do languages matter much? I've never really played kingmaker, but I was wondering if we should pay much attention on languages. It's something I usually miss in making my character sheet and don't pay much attention to. Usually I ignore it honestly, since everyone is mostly from the same country. In this game I see international politics as an important aspect, so it bears thinking about. Would I need to mark Chellish, Taldoran, Ustalav-ish,... as different languages or are they all 'common'?

So far that is two votes for Cookie's Culinary Cavalcade of Cooking Companions. Any other votes?

Remember, a vote for Cookie is a vote for Calzone Golems

 


Maybe even a Feast or Butter Golem

I try not to involve myself too much in what people might create.

@Sirviantis - Goblin, Orc, lizard folk, and other tribes of humans and humanoids abound in the area. There’s always some possibility that not being able to speak with them could be a problem.

-~ ~ Cookie ~ ~
right-aligned image

~ "It's not filth, It's Flavor"! ~

Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (NOT Chaotic Stupid)
Class: Witch (Gingerbread Witch) Lv. 2 / Alchemist (Promethian Alchemist) Lv.2
Race: Goblin (w/ Eat Anything which Replaces Skilled)
Age: 26
Possible Courtly Role: Royal Chef (w/ possible use as a Treasurer of Magistrate)

Traits: You gain a +1 trait bonus on Stealth checks, and Stealth is always a class skill for you.Silent Hunter, Bandit (Profession: Cook/Intelligence)(I have no idea why they call it this when Choose one Profession skill and one ability score other than Wisdom. You add that ability score's modifier in addition to your Wisdom modifier on checks with the chosen Profession skill.looking at the description of the trait)
Drawback: Attached (Meat Cleaver) (A Memento from Granny)

Description: Cookie is not what you would call a typical goblin. Although he was smaller then most when he was first born his tendency to eat anything and everything has not only aloud him to grow quite tall for a goblin but also rather fat. He's not obese, at least not as much as some goblin chieftains, but he does have a gut large enough to be consider over weight. His head is also slightly smaller then most goblins but he does share the same toothy grin so common among his kin. However, most noticeable is his well groomed and waxed mustache.

Cookie avoids the more typical rags or makeshift cloths of his kin, instead preferring an actual chef's apron and hat. He also has more formal cloths, similar to a proper butler of valet outfit, but he doesn't like to wear it, finding it far too stuffy or restrictive. No matter what outfit he might wear Cookie always tries to wear his favorite knife and two bandoliers full of his favorite spices, although he sometimes has to hide them. Lady Istara has explained to him that a kitchen knife and bandoliers are not proper attire for more official events but Cookie has pointed out most knights are allowed to wear their weapons and armor at such events. Are not spices like his armor and his knife his weapon of choice? Why should he not wear them proudly?

Personality:
 

History:
 

How do you know Merina Istara?
As mentioned in his background Cookie first met Lady Istara when he snuck aboard a cart destined for the Stolen Lands and would have likely been driven off once found if the Elven sorcerer had not taken an interest in him. It is because of her mercy and willingness to allow him to cook for her that Cookie has grown to see Merina as his 'Great Long Ear Magic Chief of Chiefs', although she has been able to convince him to call her Lady Istara instead. Why Long Shanks are always wanting less impressive names has always been a mystery to Cookie but if his Chief wants to be called Lady Istara rather then Chief of Chiefs that is her choice to make.

Trivia Tidbits:
- Despite what many people believe Cookie does not, in fact, eat humans. HE HAS, Absolutely, but Cookie understands that 'civilized' people become very 'touchy' when the idea of eating their own kind comes up. Cookie doesn't really understand why some people are so sensitive about this idea, after all some people eat monkeys and they taste very similar to humans, BUT he does realize that unless he wants to be chased away or killed like his first teacher he CAN"T EAT PEOPLE. That's fine though as there are plenty of other types of meats he can experiment with and enjoy.

- One of Cookie's dreams was to become a cook to nobility, the personal chef of some great Chief. Now that he has achieved that he plans on using his influence to create one of the greatest kitchens, filled with every manner of ingredient. At the same time he will continue to learn all he can about food by tasting and experimenting with everything he might come across. Then, when he is ready to retire, he will travel the land to sample from all of the chefs he comes across and gift upon them his criticism to help them overcome their limitations as chefs; all while protected by delicious Food Golems

- Cookie has attempted to speak Common in a variety of 'accents' before (French, Italian, etc), despite not actually speaking the language these accents came from, because, at the time, he though they made him sound more like a high class chef. He has since given up on this idea but sometimes mixes old phrases or pronunciations into his normal speech by accident. Unfortunately, because it's all just a chaotic mix it comes across more confusing then cultured.

- Cookie didn't receive his name because of his chosen profession but instead from the fact that his first teacher use to call him Emergency Cookie Ingredient, or Cookie for short.

- Cookie, as a Goblin, does not typically call things by their "Given Names", instead using descriptive titles which better represent such items. It's not that he doesn't know 'Large Milk Giving Moo Beasts' are actually called Cows, he does, but in goblin culture taking time to call something by it 'Full Name' is a sign of respect. To call someone by a 'Name' rather then 'Title' is to either show great disrespect or intimacy with that person. Goblins also believe that words more then three syllables are unlucky so, although Cookie can speak such words, typically avoids them when possible.

Goddamn, I want to be around Cookie a lot.

Also, I've been thinking, @Ysolde, could you add "Chief builder, head of infrastructure" to Golarion's list of aspirations? I planned on taking up that job as treasurer (promoting trade and such by building roads), but seeing as I've got some competition...

He'd also be inclined to take up the position of court mage (advisor in magical matters, overseeing prophecies, collecting writings and examining magical mishaps) though I'd say Merina would have that under control. So perhaps he's an apprentice court mage.

Question concerning Cookie for Ysolde. How do you want to handle Cooking? Is it a Profession or a Craft Skill? Craft Skills typically 'create' things which food would fall into but there is the Cook Profession as well. Cookie has no problem taking both but if so I would like to clarify how each skill will be handled. If you want the simplest way I would say Profession (Cook) is the only skill needed but, as I mentioned before, Cookie can have both if nessecary.

I came up with a question too. Would you be adverse to me reskinning the false focus feat to a powerful magical artifact that accomplishes the same?
