Carrion Crown AP Pathfinder PBP

Recommended Posts

***Recruitment closed.***

 

Since some other PBP I have been in have died or stalled, I think I have time to run a second game.

 

I'm thinking Pathfinder Carrion Crown AP OR the mega-module The Dragon's Demand.

 

Thinking to start in mid-to-late August.

 

Acceptable Books:

Core Rulebook + Advanced Player's Guide.

 

Player Requirements:

it looks like we're settling on 5 players.

 

People who aren't in my Crypt of the Everflame game (I love you guys, but I want to run for some of the other great folks on the boards too. Besides, Crypt has two sequels we can follow up with).

Never played to a significant extent any of the chosen adventures.

 

Posting Policy:

I post pretty frequently, and hope people can too. After 24 hours waiting for your turn, We'll nudge you in Recruiting. After 24 more hours, I'll PM you. After 24 more hours, I'll act for your character using my best judgement.

Arrange extended time away ahead of time and let me know if you want us to stop until your return, or put you into Bot-Mode.

This is the only way we can hope to get through a good chunk of the material!

 

Other:

Max gold for class

Non evil, also don't like chaotic neutral.

Two traits.

Stats: 4d6, drop lowest, reroll all 1s (so stat rolls range 6-18), do this 7 times and drop worst one.

Max HP first level

Roll HP after that, but if less than 1/2 HD, get 1/2 HD minimum (will describe this better later).

 

Edited-to reflect the direction this took.

I'm interested and especially like the prospects of speedy posting. I have another game (and a stalled half), though, so I also wouldn't want to bully anybody out.

 

 

If in, I think I might like to run an alchemist. Or possibly a paladin. Or maybe monk. Or fighter.

I have never played Carrion Crown. I did play Dragon's Demand, but missed a couple of rather large chunks of it. I don't want to see what parts I played as it could spoil for others.

 

I would be interested and would likely drag out the half-orc witch I never got to play with. She could be a ton of fun, I even have a mini I painted up of her

I'm leaning towards Paladin or Inqusitor myself.

 

For now.  I can very easily be distracted by oh shiny.

 

Are either of the adventures suitable for mounted characters?

 

Are the two books listed the only source for all options (traits, spells, alternate racial traits, archtypes ect) or just for races and classes?

 

I'm gonna make a character or two for this even if I'm not in because I'm kinda addicted to making characters right now.

I was kinda curious about that myself for the books, for now I clicked them all off until told otherwise. I am curious more for familiar options if I can use all the books for options or just the ones in the 2 books?

 

No clue about Carrion Crown. I never read adventures that I might be playing in, but I know the Dragon would not be recommended for mounted really

based upon the name, it's undead heavy yes?

 

Is there a Player's guide for it?

 

Nevermind, found it.

 

Definitely feeling the Inquisitor.  Will most likely go for a ranged or reach build depending on what other character end up being.

my group started carrion crown, but never made it through the first adventure. If there is still a spot open and no one to fill it, I would be interested in giving the story another go.

I got decent ones myself.  I took knowledge(arcana) and knowledge (planes) I can add in 1 more if needed. My others are centered for the witch.

 

So far I took the Extra Hex feat. So I have the hexes: Evil Eye and Ward.

 

Some things may change as the party rounds out more. Right now she has a transformation patron as I do enjoy playing with htose spells, but really only thing I am settled on is Half-orc witch. No Archetypes as no archetypes were released when the witch was released

Ok, Dilvish, Marvin, Flamehawke, and SR.

That's a party.

Would be nice to have an Alternate too.

No spoilering, SR ;)

not to worry. I don't metagame and spoilers ruin the fun for everyone.

      Is there anyone who might be interested  in a PBP 4e GURPS lite (rules light, no crazy math) portal horror/ mystery modern day adventure.
      1) Gurps 4e is published by Steve Jackson Games, and the free "lite" version of the rules is available online here.
      2) This world is adapted by me from the fiction of Ian Rogers with my own additions.
      3) Character creation rules
      NO MAGIC OR SUPER POWERS or cinematic skills/abilities
      100 points available up to 50 points in disadvantages and 5 quirks as well. If your character concept is disabled, then there's leeway to go over this, but needs discussion with me first
      If you have 4e books or the character creator app, feel free to go for it. Otherwise I will post a list of templates and where they're located that I've vetted to guide you beyond the lite rules.
      A skill at 12/13 is considered professional quality. higher gets you a better ability to handle tough situations and improve chance at a critical. Really high skills might get notoriety (could be good or bad).
      Useful guidance http://forums.sjgames.com/showthread.php?p=369148
      Also this free pdf condensing skills info should be useful
       
      4) This is set in Toronto and Ontario Canada primarily. Your character doesn't need to be from there, you just need to have an idea of what you're doing there, and specifically to start, what you're doing in the PATH specifically (this will be how you are all introduced). After reading about the world basics, you will also need to think about any supernatural/ blacklands experience your character has had... if any, and if/how they were affected by it.
      The World Basics
      I'm hoping to be able to do a few posts a week, but because I'm new to this, and have limited availability it might be slower than I want. I'm unsure about the number of players - this could work with only a few.
      More later. Feel free to ask questions or express interest.
      If you have and use a skill that will allow you to obtain info/ achieve goal to advance plot, that will happen. I won't make people roll until something happens or things end.
       
      This site seems to have a decent character generator. There`s step-by-step at the top of the page, and it auto-calculates. Please print to pdf or printscreen or recopy.  so I can review. If you need a template, please let me know. Please set point maximum to 100 (it defaulted to 300 for me).
       
      Current Characters list:
      1)Magnus Albertson @Dilvish the Deliverer
      2)Sammy @Arkady
      3) Sam Travis @Corsair
      4)TBD @Chaoswolf
      5) Raoul @Colonel Kane
       
      6) Morgan Faustus @Kangaroorex
      There will be a hard cap at 6 players. And maybe only 5 total. We're closing in on being able to start things.

      An elaborate sculpt, overflowing with detail in the Pathfinder fashion. (I swear, at least one of their artists must have a Thing for buckles and straps). Jigeke here has an excellent mask and a very long spear, a diverse collection of severed hands and paws, and a patchwork kilt of many kinds of hide. I know there's zebra and giraffe in there, and leopard as well. 

      It's Robert E. Howard's birthday today, and without him we probably wouldn't have the Barbarian class as a thing (see: Conan the), or Serpent-folk as insidious infiltrators (see: Kull), or puritan monster-hunters (see: Solomon Kane) as pulp/fantasy tropes. So it seems good to commemorate him with a guy who could be a good stand-in for N'Longa, Kane's sorcerous blood-brother and recurring ally.

      I am playing in the Pathfinder "Ruins of Azlant" Adventure Path campaign.  A few of the PCs have some healing magic, but we didn't have an actual cleric until a PC recently took the Leadership feat, and an NPC cleric joined the party as his cohort.   (Click here for the Show-Off thread about the figure that I use for my character.)
      The new cohort-cleric, Father Kurvis, is middle-aged and acts like a curmudgeon but has a kind heart.  He worships Abadar, the god of cities, law, merchants, and wealth.  Abadar's colors are gold and black, and his holy symbol is a golden key.
      Our GM has an extensive collection of prepainted plastic figures (D&D and Pathfinder), and this Village Priest seemed appropriate.  It is from a 2005 D&D miniatures release.   I offered to repaint it to be specifically Kurvis.
      Two hours of slinging paint got me to "finished" ... and after I took the first set of photos, I saw how bugged and asymmetrical his eyes were, so I just spent a few more minutes touching them up.
       
      Before and after:
       

       

       
      Enjoy,
      Derek

      On the left, Anya Pirate Queen by Magnificent Egos.  Did not start out to paint a pink pirate princess, but that's sort of where she ended up after I highlighted up the purple coat and painted the skulls as rosettes. 
       

       
      On the right, Deep Cuts Pathfinder human female paladin, one of two that come in the package.  A+ on the dynamic pose, C for loss of detail in the molding process. I wanted it to be better but it turned into a wash and drybrush job due to the sculpt. It's for tabletop.
