Does anyone else find backstories to be particularly difficult? Especially with higher levels and custom materials incorporated into the character.

On one end I'm like "What would be realistic?" for a fantasy character. On the other I'm like "But Dude, Prose n' ****!" And it's hard to remember to go with only one kind of narrative perspective when all the personalities in my head are screaming their own spin on things...

Or is it just me?

I saw where they said that about a week's notice or so, I just want sure if I may have missed something in all these following posts.

Hey DM, a little Googlefu found this, which is apparently a third party binder of sorts. It's all about constellations and celestial bodies so I think it still kinda fits the setting? Anyways, here's the link. Would you allow it?

Actually, never mind. That looks more complex than I thought it would be.

I updated the table for ya. Or rather, I'm updating it at the moment of typing, but by the time you read this I'll have updated the table. Time travel, it makes things difficult...

Monad Rene Mad scientist/victorian noble/small child XXX

So, I'm not sure if the "complete?" column is up to date, hard to really be sure...

@Alphaeus: I'm honestly wondering if you're still willing to go through with the game. I feel like you've been awefully quiet in the thread. Nothing wrong with that, but I just wonder...

To ask an incidental question that slipped my mind- what's your tolerance level for undead/conjured companions?
Anything goes. That said, companions in general are going to be difficult to keep track of sometimes. As much of a liability as a boon. Fair warning

That's absolutely fine!

Yes, thank you. That would be appreciated.

The glamered special ability allows armor to appear as something different, but can I use it to disguise my shield as something, say an arcane focus? Can I then use the same shield as an arcane focus. I know that clerics can use paint their holy symbol on their shields to use their shield as divine focus, so I don't consider it to be unbalanced or anything.

Follow up question: since I like the idea of a reliable personal flying vehicle I wanted a 5'x5' flying carpet, can I reflavour it into an enchantment for the shield for the same price?
Screw using glammer and all that. Just reflavor some sort of arcane focus into a shield. I trust you'll use logic. Normal rules for both will apply.

Is it the standard gold for level 12 characters on the Pathfinder SRD, or is it a different amount?

Again, my apologies for all of these questions that should probably have easy answers. If I missed the answer to this question as well, then I'm terribly sorry. Personally, I'm on the Autism spectrum at a place where things that seem obvious to many people don't quite seem that way for me, so that's me trying to explain my silliness. Not trying to excuse it, just trying to be understood. Thank you all for your patience.]

EDIT: Also, do we roll for HP, or do we take the average of each hit die, like in DnD 5e? (So sorry! It's been a while since I've been in a Pathfinder game)
Yes, you are buying gear if you choose to make a char sheet. Anything goes for items. Gold is standard level 12 PFSRD amounts. HP is rolled.

For the Gunsmoke Mystic I'm trying to figure out the reading of Flowing movements.

"At 1st level, a gunsmoke mystic gains Rapid Reload as a bonus feat, even if she does not meet the prerequisites, and applies that feat to any firearm she wields. At 5th level, a gunsmoke mystic can reload a two-handed firearm as if it were a onehanded firearm, and a one-handed firearm as if it were a hand or light crossbow. "

So with Rapid Reload and then the 5th level bump up, am I reading this correctly in that that would then make a two handed firearm being reloaded in a move action?

Also, I may have missed it, but what firearm cultural level are we looking at here, advanced or just early, very rare, emerging, etc?
I'm not sure about the RAW here. It is rather vague. That said, my ruling is that you have the correct understanding. As to tech levels...remember this is a superverse. Some universes don't have anything beyond simple weapons. Others have future tech. You have all that and everything between. You choose. And if nothing in the SRD seems to fit, brew something up and run it by me.

Are firearms still exotic weapons? Sorry if you've already answered this.

@Everyone

Notice:

I've got a wonderful pile of apps here. I'm CLOSING APPLICATIONS.


***If you have already posted, you can finish your applications. I'm not starting the one week deadline quite yet due to a number of WIPs. But it will likely start soon at this point.

@Sirvantis

Yes, I definitely am. I tend to prefer batch-posting in these threads to tons of smaller replies. Makes it easier for people to find what I said.

For the sake of the somewhat chaotic feel of this game, we're rolling it. I will say you can re-roll any 1s and 2s, tho.

Librarian

Firearms are either exotic or martial. Depends on the context for your character. Use good judgement on that.

Oh. Well. You've closed applications so I guess it's moot. But I hope everyone has fun! It looks like a great campaign!

I really wish youd mentioned that earlier. Itd have saved me a lot of time. Withdrawing interest.

Just wanted to check if there were any issues with my app, considering it wasn't mentioned.
