@Alph I wonder, since you seem to be going for an adventure across multiple planes and the layers between them, would a character themed around the manipulation of spacetime be super inappropriate or just the opposite? Or would it not matter at all?

@Sirviantis: My TT area has no links. Template is only underlined inside to show where those bonuses came from. The actual link to the template is outside the TT area.

@TaleTeller
I treat templates as class levels generally. Occasionally I'll feel that a template is over/under leveled and then adjust the values accordingly. Your selected one is just fine.


@Kaiya
Your concept is excellent, just make sure you are able to build a full character with depth out of it. Otherwise, go ahead!

@Taleteller
Mechs of all sorts are fine. I'll check over the rules used, but most of those are actually fairly balanced. Most D20pfsrd material will likely get my OK...I don't do a universal allowance simply because there are a few borked things in there.

@Sarsprilla
Fascinating character, I'll do a full review eventually. At this point, I would recommend the use of spoilers {spoilerbutton=Text}Text{/spoilerbutton} ... (replace "{ }" with "[ ]"). Makes sorting through my thread a bit easier for me and others.

@Sirviantis AND Taleteller
Thanks for the chart :P

@Sirviantis
Depends on what you do/how you do it. I can say that such powers are always useful, but I will say that your primary tool for that is The Gatehouse itself. What you're talking about, however, is going to be much more small-scale and therefore could remain relevant.

So, I need to add some steampunk to my inventory, and call it magic?

That could be... interesting for me. It might be fun.

If Alphaeus is up to it, it could be fun to reflavor a few things... instead of a scimitar, have a cane-sword (same stats, just more flavor). And a magic bumbershoot, instead of a shield. Spats of translocation. Cravat of protection. Monocle of true seeing.

Hmmmm

My bad it is excessively long isn't it? Just fixed it up.

A review would be most appreciated

This looks like a rather lovely campaign, all in all- would you be averse to considering a site newcomer's application? (I'm sure I can write something up alongside my application to provide a sample of my writing style.)

...and, if the awnser to that is "yes", would you mind briefly going over what Psionics mean in this setting? Perhaps I'm just daft, but I didn't see anything on Psionics in the brief rundown of the other forms of magic. Or, if it's up to us to define....well, that's even better. Just seemed prudent to ask, since Dreamscarred press is already on the cards.

@Monad: You'll need the Alphaeus' oppinion on this, though rest assured that I've never known a DM who denied a new player a spot on their game on account of being a new player. Be sure to bedazzle Alphaeus with your application.
Also, since most recruitment threads ask for a writing sample I'd assume that Alphaeus didn't need one, since you'll be doing a backstory, appearance and personality section anyway and that also serves the purpose of showing off skills and style.

@Alphaeus: Anything on starting gold? I was planning on doing the character sheet.
Also, how important are languages and/or how would you say we overcome the language barrier?

I ended going in an entirely new direction. My guy/gal will be an androgynous blue skinned godling. (for flavor purposes) Dread class, Pirate background. As for his/her race it is statistically an elan but flavor-wise he/she is an Annunaki. I wanted to know if there is a deadline already set because I don't want to miss out on this if possible.

Name: Zei
Gender: Female
Age: ???
Race: Tiefling
Class: Eclipse

Description: If most people had to pick one word to describe Zei, that word would be 'black'. Her skin is completely black. Her horns are black. Her eyes are black. They're like solid orbs, with no iris or pupil. The hooded cloak she wears is literally made of shadow. Her creators definitely had a theme in mind. Zei was not made to lounge in sunlit meadows.

Backstory: The fortress is vast. The fortress is everything. What does it guard? Only the Creators know. Zei is one of its many many guardians. She was born fully grown, with all the knowledge she needed. Floor 46 is her territory. It's a shadowed catacomb, that swallows all light. Woe betide any adventurer who makes it this far. Assassins lurk in every corner. By the time someone realises that Zei is there, they're a step away from death. Zei relishes such moments...

...not that they happen often. Most intruders die before reaching the 46th floor. So Zei has a lot of free time. She fills her idle hours in many ways: Like playing games of 'stabby tag' with the other assassins. She's also pen pals with a lich on the 87th floor. Last week, she helped remodel someone's labyrinth. It's a decent life. It's the only life she's ever known. She assumed that she'd guard the fortress forever. Sure, some weak guardians got themselves killed. But that'd never happen to her, right? Or so she thought, until that Paladin's axe bisected her.

Personality: Zei was designed to kill intruders. Such a job doesn't require social skills. So her creators saw no reason to give her any. Despite her mysterious appearance, Zei is what sociologists call a 'dork'. In battle, she's a whirlwind of destruction. At parties, she's a background decoration. Zei does crave the company of others. She just prefers it on her own terms: Like a training exercise; Or notes sent by carrier pigeon. Her talent for stealth lets her avoid unwanted meetings. When overwhelmed by stimuli, she retreats. It took her quite a while to befriend floor 46's other inhabitants. She finds comfort in familiarity. Being suddenly thrust into a new environment would be a massive shock. Thank goodness that'll never happen!

Quick question: what’s your stance on custom races using ARG rules? If acceptable, is there an RP number I should be aiming for?

Brainstorming something that's a bit Eberron-esq themed. Definitely playing the Magitech vibe up with maybe a Gnome bard reflavor?

The thoughts are brewing.

Father is done, though I might indulge in an RP sample later on once I find out what I want to make it about.

I wonder when I should bother you with homebrewing things though, I'm thinking about adding some asterisks to his android race on account of his symbiote. Also there's a spell idea I'd like to work out and some feats I'd like to be compatible with spheres.

Also, I realised that since Cordyceps is Father's power source pretty much, that makes Father the parasite, Damn freeloader!

In a setting where I could be anything, I decided to be human. Still excited though.
