Crypt of the Everflame Recruitment

427 posts in this topic

Hi everyone.

Gonna jump right in as a first time GM for PBP.

Pathfinder Crypt of the Everflame module.

Rules:

Pathfinder Core Rulebook 6th printing or earlier with appropriate errata.

Never played this module/series.

Only items, classes, races, feats from Core Rulebook.

1st level. 20 points "point buy system."

Good or Neutral Alignments.

No "Traits"

Declare "favored class" and bonus HP or Skill

Average Starting gold for class from the table, not random.

 

Looking for 5 players so if one is absent, we can still press on.

Players roll their own dice and post rolls and modifiers: honor system.

I vow to post at least twice weekly ;)

Be respectful to me and other members: it may be my first time on PBP as GM, but not my first time as a GM for this game system.

Once we have a group, pm me emails so I can discreetly nudge absentees

 

If this sounds OK to you, post some characters.

If you need a player I'll play but I'll let everyone else in first.

Hello, I'm interested in joining. I've never played pbp though, may I ask what's involved or rules? Are there set times that the group is supposed to meet every week?

To be quite honest, I haven't played one yet either, although I am gearing up to join one. I did review 70+ pages of posts on Haldir's Temple of Elemental Evil thread. So I have an idea of how things work. Some groups try to arrange time to all be watching the posts at the same time to get something like a table game. That seems very difficult to accomplish, so I doubt most groups accomplish that very often. What usually seems to happen is people posting every 24 hours or so, or at least a few times per week. Since it's my first time, I am just hoping to post at least twice weekly as the GM.

 

If you are interested, the first thing to do is make a Pathfinder 1st level character using the guidelines set forth in the original post. Once you have it, post it to this thread. Once I have 4 or 5 members committed, I'll message the admin to start our gaming thread in "The Playing."

OK, that sounds good. Do we wait for group consensus on class makeup? I'm interested in monk, cleric, fighter or ranger/bard (in that order)

No one else has put up a class. So, if monk is your first pick, make a monk and post it and you'll lock it in!

Khim Leadgrinder, Dwarven Monk.  

Youngest son of a family of ore smelters. When Khim was barely weaned he was sent to an uncles temple to help out with the daily chores. While there, he found an aptitude for the physical rigors required by the martial arts. During study Khim  had a rival student, Caith Charmseeker, that continued to best Khim at all things. Eventually, During a martial arts contest, Khim cheated to best Caith. Khim's disgrace was found out.  Khim's uncle, Dimgol Informed Khim he was to leave, and not return until, he has learned to, "Hold fire in his hands, underwater."  Khim has been travelling ever since.

I'll jump in. Have only played a little bit of Pathfinder so I'm still pretty clumsy with the mechanics.

Ok. We have a monk so far. Craft a first level character according to the guidelines, post it here, and when we get 4-5 players we'll start. If you have any creation issues or questions you can post here or pm me, I'm happy to help.

Taeral - Half Elf Ranger

 

Favored Class: Ranger

Bonus: Skill

 

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B02yaH8ONGPAZGdjUkN4S1RNekk/view?usp=sharing

 

In character speak will be green.

 

Taeral looks more human than elven with his black hair and blue eyes. He prefers to spend his time out in the woods so he lacks a bit of social polish and tends to come off as a bit curt. He also prefers to keep his affairs to himself so he has put in a bit of practice going unnoticed. 

 

Could use some suggestions on my Favored enemy. Would prefer to not pick something we'll never encounter.

My humble opinion as a player is Undead for the first favored enemy.  It looks like  you already took that and for flavor, added Knowledge Religion to "know thy enemy."

Favored Enemy: Undead will be useful at first level, and useful most other levels since there are undead that span a wide range of power/level.

In looking over the character sheet, it looks like you added both an extra skill point, and an extra hit point.  Your post says you want to use the skill point, so your total HP at first level with max (d10) and CON Bonus of +1, should be 11.

Also, as a half-elf, you need to pick your second favored class at first level.

Finally, please flesh out your gear.  Secondary weapon, pouches, rations, waterskin, etc.

 

OK.

2 characters down, 2-3 more to go!

Was gonna ask about buying rations etc. Guess there is a general supply list in the CHB?

 

Put undead in as an educated guess. Thought I had removed the extra HP. Had picked Cleric as second favored class Dunno why it went away.

      Having finished up my historical Dragoon, I decided to switch gears work on a fantasy project.  A while back I'd agreed to help out with the Ouroborus Tales Kickstarter and provide a 'painting journal' describing how I went about painting one of the orcs from that project.  The figures arrived a few weeks ago, so I wanted to make sure that was up next on my to-paint list.  The official painting journal is only for the project backers, but I can still share work in progress and info online.  But the painting journal will have more detailed step by step photos and a more in-depth discussion (sorry, gotta save some secrets for that! =P).  Because I like to get the most out of this project, I'm also planning to enter the piece into the 'Eavier Metal painting competition over on their facebook group.
       
      For anyone not familiar with the sculpt, here's what the orc brave looks like:

       
      It's a nice sculpt, roughly 54mm scale (though smaller than the Black Sailors figures which look closer to 75mm).  The title makes me think native american, but there aren't any overtly native american features (features, headdress, etc).  The weapons and clothing are primitive so I'm leaning more towards the savage orcs from the warhammer fluff.
       
      There's a lot of skin on this guy (no armor covering it up), so I wanted to do something with the green to keep it interesting.  I decided to go with a two-tone skin.  So green on the back/sides and an off white on the belly.  Helps convey a more primitive animalistic look to him.  I'm also going to work in more color variation in select spots.
       
      Still at a very early stage.  I've base coated a lot of the piece and sketched in the shadows on the body.  My main focus has been the face, where I've done the green portions and details like the eyes, nose, and lips.  I still need to do the teeth, inside of the ears, white on the bottom of the jaw, and add some glazes.  But, this gives you an idea where it's going.  I'm taking the skin one section at a time, so after this I'll probably try to tackle that left arm and then move on to other parts of the body.  I'm enjoying the piece so far, but still have lots to do!

      I remember that the first Imbrian Arts KS had a lot of issues and delays, but I don't know whether it was eventually sorted out or not so if any previous backers have any info it would be worth speaking up.
       
      The minis look good though

      For the Role Player that can't make up their mind! I give you the Eldritch Knight!  or at least that is what I think it is called.
      I would wear armor too if I was tossing fireballs out like a crazy scooby doo villian.
       
      Another one of those Paizo Pathfinder minis prior to Reaper taking over. My friend has a bucket of them and I chose this one due to it's uniqueness.
       
       

       

       

      yes those are ashes and a body shaped scorch mark. TOASTY!

      As I wanna get more experience DMing 5e before ReaperCon this year & flipping through Tales of the Yawning Portal, I thought I'd see if there was any interest in running a Sunless Citadel 5e game here. I loved the adventure in 3.5, it was actually one of the last sitdown @ home games I ran before my friends/gamers all scattered across the state/area.
       
      Let me know here if you are interested.
      Basic 5e rules:  http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/basicrules
       
       Basic/PH 5e rules with the options to play the UA ranger or PH ranger & UA artficer. Races can come from the following: PH, Elemental Evil Player's Guide (minus the aracockra & with this being a dungeon crawl, a goliath might not be the best choice either. Sword Coast & Volo's 5e (thou this one needs DM's approval before proceeding.)
       
      I will probably set this in the Forgotten Realms as well.
       
      Other then that standard character generation. Looking for 5 players.
       
      I'd like to start around May 1st.
      thanks!

      This comes from a line of miniatures prior to Reaper taking on the Pathfinder line. Made by Paizo in 2005, you will probably be seeing more of these from me in the future since my friend wants every single one he has painted.
      At first I did not like this model, but after throwing some paint on...the sculpter proved me wrong. A lot of fun to paint too.
