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.

If you need a 5th, I can be your PC. I'll play whatever the party needs, thou no gnomes.... ::):

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.

      The Cleric in my D&D group leveled up and acquired the Spiritual Guardian skill. He needed a model to represent his Guardian. Honaire looks so cool, but he didn't have a shield. I found one in my bits box, and painted the symbol of his chosen Deity, Chauntea. I loved painting this because the simple palette left more room to just relax and enjoy the work.

      I don't actually have a "Shelf of Shame" of half-finished miniatures like some painters do, but if I did, this figure could have been on it.
      I sculpted Ulf Gormundr for Reaper's licensed Pathfinder line in late 2012.  Ulf is a character in the "Jade Regent" Adventure Path. 
      Although I have painted almost every one of the figures I've sculpted, I neglected to paint Ulf and a few others, mostly from 2012-2014.  Probably it was because Martin Jones was working as Reaper's staff painter and giving them good paint jobs for the gallery as soon as each figure was released.
      Several years ago, I prepped this metal casting of Ulf but then put it aside.  I removed the moldlines, patched a little pit in the handaxe, clipped away and bent the wolf-pelt leg (which is attached to pommel of the sword in the original casting) to make the overall pose a little more dynamic, and twisted his sword slightly out-of-plane for the same reason.
       
      Despite the sheltering-in-place over the past eight weeks, I haven't painted or sculpted much (er... anything).  My painting area had gotten even dustier than usual.  I resolved to paint something this week.
      I poked around my painting area, found the prepped-but-unpainted Ulf, and spent a few late-night sessions painting him.
      The color scheme is the "official" one -- from the portrait by Wayne Reynolds on the cover of Adventure Path #51, plus the shield design by another artist in the interior of AP #50 (I don't know who, but there are several artists listed in the credits and I could rule out a few; does anyone out there know?). 
      The figure has some complicated layering of clothing and armor and gear (but I actually simplified Wayne Reynolds's design a bit for the miniature).  I made it even more fiddly with freehand textures.
       
      For the base, I glued the figure to a plastic base, sculpted a layer of putty over the top (including his last footprint behind him), painted it blue and white to look like snow, and glued on a "Winter Tuft" grass product.  I cut the smallest tuft into 3 sub-tufts because I didn't want to hide his legs behind a big clump of grass, especially in the front view.
       
      Enjoy!

      Here is Zadim, Iconic Slayer from the Pathfinder Iconics stretch goal to the core set. He was sculpted by Bobby Jackson and is also available in metal sku 60179. I kept pretty well to the Wayne Reynolds artwork for the colour scheme.

      Hi people.
      Im going to start another PBP.  So far I have interest from @ShadowRaven, @dwarvenranger, @Dilvish the Deliverer, and @Kangaroorex.
       
      We’re going to start the Serpent’s Skull adventure path.  Pathfinder 1e.
       
      All books are in play, but I reserve the right to veto something if it seems too gross/bloated.
       
      Please utilize the Serpent’s Skull Players Guide from the Paizo website.
       
      Abilities: 4d6, reroll all 1’s, drop lowest score, yielding ranges from 2-18 pre mods.
       
      Avg. Starting gold.
       
      We’ll follow the AP leveling track when possible.
       
      We’ll have individual initiative.
       
      I hope to get this started soon, so please post those characters.

      -edits-
      House Rules
      1. HP beyond first level.  Roll the hit die.  If the roll is less than”avg” then take avg instead.  Example: Wizard d6.  Rolls a 1.  Gets 4hp instead, before Con mod.
      2. Acrobatics can be used to avoid AOO when standing from prone.
      3. If someone is not responding and action is waiting for them, I’ll send a pm after 24 hours.  If no response 24 hours later, I’ll take over that character to get action rolling again.
