Wrath of the Righteous

Game NameWrath of the Righteous
Game SystemPathfinder
ThemeMythic Heroes wage war against the demonic hordes of the Worldwound
FlavourHigh Fantasy Save the World, with a nice side of redemption themes
Plot Summary
Wrath of the Righteous


IntroFor more than a hundred years, the demon-infested Worldwound has warred against humanity, its Abyssal armies clashing with crusaders, barbarians, mercenaries, and heroes along the border of lost Sarkoris. But when one of the magical wardstones that helps hedge the demons into their savage realm is sabotaged, the crusader city of Kenabres is attacked and devastated by the demonic hordes. Can a small band of heroes destined for mythic greatness survive long enough to hold back the forces of chaos and evil until help arrives, or will they become the latest in a long line of victims slaughtered by Deskari, the demon lord of the Locust Host?


The basicsThis game will focus on the PCs ascension to mythic levels of power, and their resultant crusade against the demons of the Worldwound. Play will begin at 1st level with standard mortal characters, and should carry them all the way to 20th level and near-apotheosis levels of mythic power.
I am looking for 5-7 good-aligned characters. Applications will be selected based on a combination of writing ability, overall background, and how well the application fits with the other applications Iíve selected. This game will be heavy on combat, so I expect some well-crafted crunchy bits on your character sheet, but there will also be ample opportunity for roleplay. Not all books can be judged by their covers, and sometimes, even the foulest-tempered of demons can see the point of parley
Iím looking for a posting rate of 3-4 times a week. Life happens and I know we wonít all always be able to do that, but itís a nice goal.

The deadline for applications will be April 28th , feel free to post character concepts and ask questions here until the game forum is created.


Character Creation
  • Characters will start at 1st level with max gold for their class.
  • Characters will become Mythic Tier 1 during the course of the adventure. Mythic abilities are not allowed at the beginning of play.
  • 20pt buy
  • All Pathfinder sources allowed. If something is not listed on this site, I may not have access to it and thus will require a brief writeup of the feat, spell, etc., that you wish to use from that source.
  • 3 traits, one of which must be a WotR campaign trait. The Wrath of the Righteous Playerís Guide has further information on each of these unique traits and is available for free download at the paizo website.
  • Good alignments only
  • 3rd party and 3.5 stuff is not preferred, but may be allowed on a case by case basis if given an extremely good reason.
  • Psionics are 3rd party, but as they are on the srd, they are allowed. I am not particularly familiar with psionics, so expect tons of questions if you decide to play one and are approved.

Your app should have the following information.
Name:
Appearance:
Personality:
Background:
Traits: Not necessarily all of them, but at least the WotR-specific campaign trait found in the Wrath of the Righteous Player's Guide. Trait choice here has potentially game-changing ramifications further down the road, and should be worked into your background.
RP Samples, Pictures, and Theme Songs are optional but encouraged.

As far as RP samples go, the campaign will open with the destruction of the city of Kenabres by a horde of demons, so feel free to RP your exerience there if you want to do a piece with action in it. Any other scenario works as well, I just thought I'd throw that out there.


House Rules
  • If your character abuses the rules, the rules will abuse your character
  • Perception is a class skill for all PCs, but not automatically for Animal Companions, Bonded Mounts, Eidolons, etc.
  • All PCs get an additional +2 skill points per level. This does not apply to Animal Companions, Bonded Mounts, Eidolons, etc.
  • All characters, creatures, and NPCs with BAB +1 or higher gain Power Attack, Weapon Finesse, Combat Expertise, and Deadly Aim for free. Ability score requirements are waived for these bonus feats. These specifically also apply to Animal Companions, Bonded Mounts, Familiars, Summoned Creatures, and anything else.
  • Leadership grants a cohort and followers as per normal, but said cohort and followers generally do not accompany PCs on adventures. They oversee reconstruction efforts, mind PC businesses, etc. they can be used for item crafting. Priority will be given to existing NPCs in the WotR campaign over introducing a new NPC as a cohort. Additionally, in the event that they do accompany the heroes, they are NPCs and will be played as such.
  • Max hp at 1st level, player may take half+1 or roll for each additional level
  • Clerics worship a deity, not an ideal
  • I reserve the right to add to the list of house rules as needed.

Are you looking more for Shining Armor sorts of good? Or general nice people with unclear goals and good hearts?

Fragmaster01, normal people with unclear goals and good hearts is fine, with the caveat that with the campaign traits from the PG, you should wind up with more than a passing interest or connection to the Crusades.

Posting interest this sounds great! Anything particular you want in an App? Obviously the normal stuff but role playing sample? New or can it be a previous one were proud off? Or do you want it from the perspective of this new Character?

P.S your the first DM I've had for a pathfinder game that uses that site! Which is awesome because its the site I always use!

Derp. I knew I forgot something. I'm looking for Name, Personality, Background, and Appearance. RP Samples, while encouraged, aren't necessary. Feel free to come up with something new or link to a favorite post. Pictures and theme songs are also encouraged but not necessary. I'm going to update the main post to reflect this.

And one last question. The +2 for skills, do you mean an additional +2 to the given, or instead off whatever it says, its only +2.

Does that mean :
1: Everyone with a BAB of 1 or higher has these? or
2: Any class that gives bonus feats can give these once your BAB is 1 or higher? or
3: Anyone with a BAB of 1 or higher can ignore the ability score requirements? or
4: Something else.

Note: If only one application is allowed per player, then disregard this character and instead see this post.

Sebastian
BasicName: Sebastian Leroux
Race: Human
Class: Oracle (Life Domain)
Campaign Trait: Touched By Divinity (Sarenrae, Healing domain)
Gender: Male
Age: 22
Alignment: NG
AppearanceA cautious young man shyly finds his way toward a table. It's pretty clear that he can't see very well, but he doesn't bump into anybody, so he must be accustomed to his near-blindness. The young man wears a humble white robe wrapped with a red sash, and beneath his hood, you can see a handsome, boyish face, framed by wavy red hair. His eyes are clouded white, but some traces of green still remain.
BackgroundSebastian is an orphan, and his past is marked by one distinct event that shaped his entire destiny. As a child, he was adventurous and foolhardy, always running through the fields and pretending to be a knight. One day, he strayed too close to the cliff's edge. The wind caught him, and he went tumbling over the edge. It was a massive drop, one that he had no way of surviving, but as he fell through the air, suddenly a bright flash of light appeared before his eyes, so bright that his eyes burned. He passed out before hitting the ground. When he returned to consciousness, he was lying at the top of the cliff.

He heard a faint female voice that said to him,

"Today is not your day to die, child. You have a role in things to come."

Sebastian found that the light he had seen had nearly blinded him. He could not see beyond a short distance in front of him; his vision was blurry, and beyond a certain point everything was just a grey-brown haze.

Following the accident, the woman began to appearin his dreams. She came to him in the form of a white dove, sometimes saying nothing at all, other times making light conversation, remarking at his growth. She would not answer his questions, or even acknowledge his words to her, but he felt assured that she was watching over him. In time, he realized that the dove was the goddess Sarenrae herself.

In the following years, strange powers awakened inside Sebastian. When the other orphans in town got hurt in scuffles, Sebastian would place his hand on the bruises, and they would disappear. The priests at the church called him a miracle child; he didn't think he was anything special.

Nowadays, Sebastian sees himself as a servant of Sarenrae. He has left the church he grew up in, certain that his talents are needed on the frontlines. He will be there to fulfill his destiny.
PersonalityA peaceful, compassionate man, Sebastian has grown accustomed to helping people, whether they ask for it or not. He's friendly, and an earnest companion, although he's spent most of his life in or near a church, so he's quite sheltered. He prefers not to fight, but is more than willing to back up his friends if they're in danger.

Aerondor: Everyone with a BAB of +1 or higher has all of those feats for free, without needing to meet the prerequisites.
Totentanzen: Each cass gets 2 additional skill points at each level. So Fighters have 4+Int per level, rogues have 10+Int, etc.

Name: Death Seeker (Seeker for short)
Race: Halfling
Class: Druid
Gender: Male
Alignment: Neutral good
Background: Death seeker was raised by a xenophobic tribe of wolf-riding Halfling druids dedicated to the preservation of their small forest home. It was a quiet simple life of relative peace. They hunted and foraged, and defended their home from any threats, but never went looking for trouble.

Death Seeker stood out from a young age. Where others hesitated, he went boldly foreword no matter how dangerous the situation. He played with venomous snakes, taunted large wild cats to chase him, and stole honey from bears. When it was time to choose a wolf companion, Death Seeker chose the most unfriendly one in the pack, Bristle Back. The unsociable wolf and Death Seeker wrestled for hours before the beast finally accepted that the Halfling was just as stubborn as itself

Death Seeker’s brash behavior gained him much attention in the tribe, both good and bad. His near suicidal recklessness was a constant concern for his parents, and an inspiration to other youths, but eventually his reckless behavior would lead to tragedy. Death Seeker ventured into the World Wound itself seeking to slay a demon. His friend and admirer Flitt followed. The two did not get far before they were attacked by an abomination. Death Seeker threw himself at the beast, but Flitt was too frightened to back him up. The creature easily defeated the inexperienced Seeker, and killed Flitt.

Seeker would have followed had it not been for the timely arrival of a mysterious woman who saved him, despite his protests. Death Seeker felt that it was his time, but the woman ignored his pleas to leave him to his natural end. She returned him to the boarders of his home where his wolf returned him to the others for healing.

Despite the condemnation of the elders, Death Seeker refused to accept blame or apologize for Flitt's death, stating that he made his own choice, and it was a good end. His only regret was not joining him in the afterlife. Unable to forgive his behavior, or change it, the elders had had enough. Death Seeker was banished.

Although he misses his family and friends, the irrepressible Halfling prefers to live in the now, neither dwelling on the past or the future, he has set off to seek adventure, and what better place than The World Wound. When he heard of the crusaders, and the perilous danger that they face, the fearless druid knew he wanted to sign up. Oh what fun it would be to fight with demons again!

Appearance: Death Seeker is young with wild hair and a bit of a stubble on his chin. He has fierce eyes and is rarely without a smile. He wears furs and uses spears, often riding on the back of his wolf companion Bristle Back.

Personality: Seeker is described by his fellows as having ‘too much life’. He is very energetic, shameless, and nearly fearless. Anything he does, he does with relish, enjoying life to the fullest, for surely that is the purpose of life. He morns not for the dead, for death is natural, he fears not his own death, for his inevitable end is also natural. Instead, the halfling wishes to live his life to the fullest.

Despite his thirst for battle and danger, Seeker is neither wicked nor cruel. He takes no pleasure in the pain or demise of others. He seeks only the thrill. He willingly and eagerly helps those he meets who have need, as not doing so is a thought utterly alien to him. What help is needed is freely given without expectation.

Seeker is very friendly and open with all he meets, seeing everyone as a friend until they give him reason not to. He never holds a grudge, and rarely apologizes. The only thing he really hates is being bored.

Bristle Back:

A large wolf with a thick chest and long bristly fur which his rider uses to hold onto, Bristle Back is a very unfriendly animal. He bares his teeth at anything that comes near, snaps at anyone who tries to pet him, and refuses to submit to anyone or anything. His rider is the only one whose been stubborn enough to earn the ill-tempered wolf’s respect.

Traits:Chance Encounter, Courageous, Beast Bond

Quote: “If you live long enough for your hair to grow grey, you didn’t live at all”

Music: Daredevil

Added a bit about campaign traits in the app, as the specific campaign trait chosen has great ramifications over the entire campaign.

I am curious who this "daughter" is and if you are referring to your avatar pic.

"Not all books can be judged by their covers, and sometimes, even the foulest-tempered of demons can see the point of parley"

If I create a melee character that abides by the vows in my signature below, would it work? Say, he would parley with the enemies or deal only nonlethal damage and take them prisoners afterwards. You mentioned demons - does taking them to negative HP mean death (no good for my character) or banishment only (OK for me)?
