Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition

Recommended Posts

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.

I've never really played Pathfinder but I'd be up if someone can help me with character building...

 

Never read it or played it, only Pathfinder module I've ever flipped through was Pact Stone Pyramid.

Uhhm, maybe?  Depends on whether the other games I'm in are dead or on hiatus.  Games I'm in don't seem to have a great track record for sticking around.  Maybe I'm cursed?

 

What books and whatnot were you thinking of allowing.  If nothing else, creating characters is always a good way of killing a day or three.

So, Dwarf Ranger would do well in this campaign.

 

I'm thinking Core Rulebook, Advanced Race Guide, and Advanced Players Guide, but I want to limit it to the 11 core classes from the Core Rulebook, so if you want you can tweak the classes with those options.

 

I'll try to dig up a link to the Rise of the Runelords campaign traits.

 

This AP like most, has very high skill check DCs in a lot of different skills, so build your party with a broad range of skills.

 

Looking for 5 players.

If one player is unresponsive for 30 days, I'm taking over to "bot" that character until the player returns.  Posting a character assumes you agree to this.

 

You need a rogue.

You need a cleric focused on healing.

You need a wizard.

I just can't see how alternate classes like gunslinger would thrive in this campaign, which is why I want to limit it to the 11 cores.

 

There will be time for magic item creation at least in between most of the books, so I'd recommend the party take some of those feats eventually.

I like to play frontline combattants so something that fills that role works for me. I'm guessing in Pathfinder that's Fighters, Paladins and Barbarians?

I'd like to try my hand at it again, considering the last attempt (2.5 years ago!) petered out.

 

Can I go ahead and reuse the same character? I know you said the 11 core classes, but I really want to try a utilitarian/skill based summoner.

 

EDIT: Link to my character for quick reference.

Ok then dwarven ranger it is. If nobody else wants to trapfind, I can find a way to work it into my character, with Darsc's permission of course.

Haldir, we may be full.  If someone drops, you're next up as an alternate.

 

Cranky, that character concept is fine, but I'd have you reroll the stats per my method.

It would also put your character into the "wild card" position, which would require DR to somehow get trapfinding into his ranger.

If DR wants to do this, it could be as easy as changing the archetype to an "Urban ranger."

If DR doesn't want to be an Urban Ranger, I'll let him swap out Endurance for Trapfinding at 3rd level, and he can add Disable Device as a class skill at 1st level.

 

The player's guide is available for free from the Paizo website.

      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.

      A little more than 48 hours left for this one, I think it looks really cool.

      Kamigakari: God Hunters is a tabletop role-playing game set in modern-day Japan that combines centuries of Japanese mythology with a modern-day setting and urban fantasy action. You play as a God Hunter, a being wielding supernatural strength, magical abilities, and reality-warping spiritual powers. Your mission is to protect an unsuspecting populace from evil beings known as Aramitama, and to prevent the supernatural from leaking into the public eye.
      Originally, the game was released in Japan by Arclight Games on November 2013 as Legendary Arms RPG Kamigakari, to great popularity. In January 2017, a text-only fan translation appeared on the internet, exposing Kamigakari to the attention of English-speaking RPG fans world wide, and creating a thriving fanbase that continues to grow to this day!
      Serpent Sea Games is a team of experienced RPG translation and development professionals, including the creator of the fan translation, who have licensed Kamigakari from the creators at Arclight Games for publication in English and want to bring the game officially to Western audiences.
        But we need your help to bring this book into existence!
      The Game
      The world of Kamigakari features a distinctly seinen action anime  and style to it. With crazy abilities and flashy powers, it's an over-the-top world where you can battle kaijus, giant robots, gods and demons all under the same umbrella. The system is designed to keep interactions as simple and intuitive as possible, for an easy pick-up-and-play. Kamigakari splits its play up into "scenes", which are short, episodic and will often split the focus onto individual players. It's a different experience compared to western systems that often assume the party is always together, which allows for more varied and engaging character focus and development.
      So what is a God Hunter? A God Hunter is a person who, through one means or another, has gained supernatural powers by possessing a shard of a legendary weapon, relic, suit of armor, or maybe even the crystallized soul of a legendary hero. These powers can be anything from a master of the sword or magic, transforming hero, a living avatar of flame, or the ultimate hacker. Instead of a familiar class-based system, Kamigakari uses its own character generation called Styles, which lets you mix and match your power sets to create a gun-slinging samurai, a chainsaw-wielding magical girl, a hacker who codes his magic into existence, or a hunter who stalks his victims through the shadows.
      And it's not just limited to your class: weapons and gear are utilized under the Arms system, a mechanic where a base weapon is upgraded over time by using materials or spending gold. Two basic swords, in the hands of two different god hunters, can end up very different weapons after extensive modification!
      An average God Hunter on a normal day. Does being a God Hunter mean that you hunt gods? Of course it does! With concepts rooted in Shintoism and traditional Japanese folklore, a God Hunter is tasked with tracking down dangerous beings known as Aramitama - a dark god that is born and grows in power by devouring the souls of its victims. Aramitama come in many forms - from recognizable Japanese icons like oni and tengu, mythical beings like the Pegasus or Griffin, to eldritch monstrosities made of gnashing teeth and glowing orbs. Upon defeating an Aramitama, God Hunters can use their remains to create stronger Regalia - magical weapons and equipment, in order to face even even more powerful Aramitama. It's not just a fun gameplay loop, either: These creatures threaten the sanctity of innocents and the world in their lust to reach their ultimate form, the Avatar of Ruin, a true god of destruction capable of ending the world. It's up to the God Hunters to prevent that!
      An Aramitama awakens. Kamigakari utilizes the unique Numen Dice pool. Numen Dice are resource wherein you roll a set of dice and use it to pay for abilities or change the outcome of a roll. There's many ways change, swap and spend dice. Players must be careful how they manage their Numen Pool to both survive the battle and save the perfect set of Numen Dice to activate their ultimate abilities!
      We'd like to support this game far into the future, and plan on translating and releasing supplements if financially viable. Arclight Games has also requested the creation of original content exclusive to the western release, but that can probably wait until we have a few expansion books finished, we're only mentioning it now in the interests of full transparency.

      Seen this one over on the Paizo blog page. For fans of Seoni, the iconic sorcerer class in Pathfinder. Love that there is a unpainted version & it's based off the 1st edition artwork.
       
      The unpainted version is a $99 dollar pledge.
