From Sea to Shore (level 6 Pathfinder)

117 posts in this topic

Growing up on a sailing vessel Valen was always a kind of an oddity. He gained the burden and the gift of an oracle during a horrible shipwreck, being the only survivor, Valen seemed to walk casually to shore as if he were on solid land. Although he had just survived a shipwreck he soon went out on another voyage, where during a pirates attack the ship was again sunk. Again Valen was the only survivor, but this time when he came to shore he seemed to be rotting away, with barnacle like creatures covering his skin. Valen upon reaching the shore proclaimed,that the horrors that had befallen the Ships was part of his misfortune, but to his shock people looked at him as if the could not under stand him. Valen has stayed away from ships and their crews ever since being afraid that he would cause another calamity, but his meibors have reported as to seeing him looking longingly out to the sea in the dead of night, yearning for the waves.

Ok that sounds different then as the dual bloodline as you mesh the 2 bloodlines into one. Picking whatever you would at the level you get it.

 

Sounds interesting. Oracle is one class I never really look but the more I see of it I like it.

 

I'm gonna run the Kobold King mods as well at RCon next year so I'm in the process of bring them up into Pathfinder vs a mod just for 3.5. A Oracle might be a interesting kobold class.

Could be a very good combination. The monster codex has a curse that could be interesting. Its only supposed to be used with goblins but I could see it working for Kobolds. It's called infested. They pretty much have insects and other vermin perpetually crawling on them. Could make for a disgusting kobold oracle!

Well in Return of the Kobold King, The big villian other then the returned King, is a kobold druid with insects feats & such so I may replace him with that. Sounds interesting.

 

Oddly one of the evil NPCs is listed as a fighter/monk. Perfect op to bring in the Brawler class.

I can't say Ive ever played that AP. Some one I know wants to start DMing and he wants to start with the Adventure path Iorn Gods. Would it be a good starting campaign?

You wanna play with tech? Iron Gods introduces tech stuff to Pathfinder or at least shoves it forefront in a adventure. I'm running a Iron Gods AP pbp here. It's not gotten far but I've enjoyed it so far.

 

The Crown of the Kobold King & sequel, Return of the Kobold King are a couple of Paizo's first modules/adventures they did when they were in the planning stages of introducing Pathfinder. They were under the Gamemastery label. One was a Free RPG Day offering (Return). Thus the need to update the stuff inside. Couple of critters have vastly different HPs for example. The setting is Darkmoon Vale one of the bleakest parts of Golarion. It's located in Andoran Actually they made 5 set there using the small town of Falcon's Hollow as the base town.

Could someone still get a hard copy of the crown of the Kobold King? It sounds really fun. Personally Kobolds are my favorite race in pathfinder. I just like the idea of mini lizard men

It's out of print through Paizo but you might be able to find on places like ebay. Price might be a bit higher then you'd want to pay thou. I think the pdf (correction: non-mint copy can be purchased from Paizo. I'd link but that isn't allowed here)

Does the 20-point buy include the +1 Attribute increase at 4th level?

No.  20 point buy is what you do at 1st level character creation, before racial modifiers.

Then add racial bonuses.

Then add level bonuses.

Point buy is good. It averages out to better stats than 3d6 but generally lower than 4d6k3

If Ultimate Magic has been opened up, than I may change my Archetype to Ranger (Trapper).  Since no one has a Rogue at the moment, this will allow me to gain Disable Device and Trapfinding as a Rogue, plus making cool traps, in exchange for giving up Ranger spells.  I'm fine with that.

You'll be around it & will be in it. Setting is the coastline of Cheliax.

Go ahead & think of a character. No other bites since I asked for players.

 

With that we'll lock our players in.

      Since many games have stalled waiting on one player, do the "regulars" have any interest in Rise of the Runelords?
       
      I have read through 80% of it.
      I'd be OK if you've played some of part I, but not read it.
       
      If there is interest for 4 players, I'll put up character creation rules.

      And here is 60067, Nyrissa.  At long last.
       

       

       

       

       

       
      The base is from Micro Arts Studio.  There's a WIP thread.
       
      I was trying to follow the reference art for this important Kingmaker NPC fairly closely.  It turned out okay, although I just this second realized that her feet are supposed to be orange like her hands.  Blast.  Well, I don't think they're getting fixed now, because I am so done with this mini.  The gradients.  THE GRADIENTS.  DEAR GOD, THE GRADIENTS!
       
      It turned out okay, but I think this takes my personal award for Most Annoying Mini.  It just felt like a slog to get through it.

      There I was the hobby store, I had the bones version in my hand when I ran across the metal Pathfinder version, I opted for metal. Still working out my NMM, planning on some color glazing before it's done. I also decided that this dude gets an elaborate base. I don't play with my figs, so they will all be getting the advanced base treatment. I also decided to play with green stuff for the first time. I only have pics of the helmet mods right now, but there's more (next post).
       

       Thank's for droppin in and checkin this out, what do you think?

      I'm working on 60067 Nyrissa.  She's a major NPC in the Kingmaker adventure path from Paizo.  I'm trying to follow the reference art from the cover of the AP pretty closely, though I've checked other threads on the forums for inspiration too.
       
      So far I've got a base:
       

       

       
      The base is from Micro Arts Studio.  I gouged a slot in it for the tab at the base of her wings.  It's coming along okay, but it's awfully muted.  It needs more contrast -- particularly brighter highlights.
       
      I've base coated her wings.
       

       

       
      The wings are 3:3:1 Pine Green/Linen White/Pale Saffron.  The vines are in Formula P3 Wurm Green, and the interior petals are your basic Fire Orange.
       
      It doesn't come through in the photography very well, but in person the blue in the main wings is a LOT more noticeable.  I need to push it more towards the yellow end of the spectrum -- I want them to be the pale, nearly yellow green of fresh leaf growth, before it's had time to mature and darken.  I don't quite know what I'm going to do about that.  I don't really have any pale green paints -- I generally like dark greens, and have a wide selection of those.  I may need to mix something custom.
       
      The interior petals are off to a good start, but need to shift red in the deepest parts, and yellow at the edges.  I'm less worried about those.
       
      I haven't even primed her body yet.  I'm not quite sure how to handle it, frankly.  It's a lovely sculpt, but difficult to work with.  She has a little nubbin between her shoulder blades that fits into the hole you can see in her wings up above, leaving her hovering mid-air.  Literally every other part of the mini needs to be painted -- there's no place to hold the part while I'm working.  Ordinarily I stick the figures to bottle caps with poster putty (as with the base, above), and I just got that fancy Rathcore mini holder thing that I'm using for her wings.  But neither of those will work, because any part of the mini I stick in putty isn't available for painting, and if I stick the nubbin into the cork, that leaves her back inaccessible.  Plus I worry that the pressure of the cork might deform the nubbin and cause it not to fit its matching hole properly.
       
      So I may need to paint her body in two different phases, first her torso/arms/head, and then her legs.  I'll take notes on painting procedures as I go so I can match them on the second half.
