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.

      It is time to set a course for adventure in your 5th Edition and Pathfinder RPG games with a spectacular set of pirate plunder and aquatic adventure on the seven seas and exotic ports of call with the Pirate Campaign Compendium from Legendary Games! 
      Whether you want to run interludes across the ocean or along the coastal plain or to undertake a full-on nautical campaign, from pure aquatic fantasy to historical high seas adventure, from sea serpents to booming broadsides, you'll find a wealth of amazing accessories in the Pirate Campaign Compendium! The base version of the book comprises a compilation of Legendary Games' full line of Pirate-Plug-Ins for Pathfinder and 5E.
      You'll find FIVE complete adventures ranging from 4th level to 14th level, including the smuggling run gone wrong in Spices and Flesh, the mad captain's hidden harbor in Tarin's Crown, the fast-paced high-seas heist of Raid on the Emperor's Hand, the seething rage of an ancient mystic secret of the seas in Scourge of the Steaming Isle, and an all-out assault on the stronghold of the pirate king in Fort Scurvy!  Dozens of maritime magical items in Treasury of the Fleet, including personal items like the hurricane harpoon and sea lord's tricorne as well as magic items for your ship. A selection of sinister sea monsters in an ever-growing bestiary of the briny blue!  A Pirate Codex of 30 nautical stock NPCs from 1st to 16th level, ready to drop into any encounter at a moment's notice. A pair of fully developed ship crews to use as allies or adversaries in Cutthroats and Crew. Eight richly detailed and ready-to-play pregenerated PCs in Nautical Heroes, each with detailed histories and backgrounds and advancement notes, perfect as followers, rivals, or even replacement PCs!  That's already over 200 pages of piratical delights for you, but that's just the beginning! With stretch goals, we'll be adding new nautical class options like aquatic archetypes, feats, and spells, more monsters, and even more surprises as we collect stretch goals along the way, where you get to help decide what goes in the final book! With your support, this book easily could pass 300 pages and beyond!
      Plus, we'll have a Pirates and Plunder chapter where YOU have the chance to bring a whole pirate world to life with characters and pirate captains and crews of your own, even designing a personal pirate flag, figurehead, or even a treasure map!

      Here's another recent paint.
      It still goes along with the Reign of Winter AP theme, though I don't know if the Adventure Path has a Polar Bear or not.
      This figure represents an example of "It looked better in my head."
       
      I tried following some pictures of polar bears on the web: It seems some are very yellowed (not necessarily in the shadows), and some are very white.
      So, I started with a base of 50/50 Golden Blonde/Linen White, and successively lightened it up to white, and left the darker color in the shadows.
      I thought the fur quality on this BONES sculpt is very good, so it lent itself well to a mix of drybrushing and picking out individual strands with the brush.
       
      I tried something different for the snow on the base, just some puddles of white glue that I then painted with Ghost White and Pure White.

      Here's Kul-Inkit, a character from the fifth installment of the Pathfinder "Iron Gods" Adventure Path (#89: "Palace of Fallen Stars").
      I sculpted this figure in early 2017 and painted her last week (January 2018).
      She is a great warrior but unhappy in her role as consort to Kevoth-Kul, "the Black Sovereign", nominal ruler of Numeria.  (He is also Reaper figure #60189.)  Your characters might meet her in his palace.
      Numeria blends fantasy barbarians with sci-fi.  A spaceship from another galaxy crashed there many years ago, and people have been plundering the wreckage.
      The overall color scheme is from the art in the book, but I posed her differently when I sculpted her, since the pose in the book wouldn't have worked as well for casting in miniature.
      The concept art reminded me of the model Linda Evangelista, who I think had this hairstyle at some point in her career.
      For the non-metallic metals (NMM) on the axe and shield and back-plate, I used several colors and scratchy strokes at various angles with very fine brushes.  Just trying something different.
       
      Enjoy,
      Derek

      Here's Skreed Gorewillow, a character from the first installment of the Pathfinder "Giantslayer" Adventure Path (#91: "Battle of Bloodmarch Hill").
      I sculpted this figure in the summer of 2016 and painted him a few weeks ago.
      He is a tall and gangly half-orc, whose blond hair probably means his mother was Ulfen (Pathfinder Viking).
      The magical tattoos on his face let him change his appearance ... the better to pursue his deceitful agenda!
      The colors are from the art in the book, by Johan Grenier.  He used a lot of fine brushwork in the piece -- such as the tattoos on his face and shoulders, and the scratches and wrinkles -- so that influenced how I painted the figure.
      (You can find the image by doing an online search for "pathfinder skreed".) 
      Enjoy,
      Derek
