Pathfinder Rules for Batman

Recommended Posts

My 5 1/2 yo son is super into Batman.  I had set up a Pathfinder game for the grownups, but only filled 2/4 seats.  My son has shown a little and growing interest in tabletop gaming.  So I made some stats for Batman as a Pathfinder character and used his LEGO Batman on the battle grid.

 

Here are how it came out: attributes were rolled.

Race Human

Class Ranger (Urban) lvl 1

Str 16

Dex 19 (+2 human)

Con 14 

Int 13

Wis 14

Cha 8

 

Favored Class Ranger +1 HP

Trait: Rich Parents

Trait: Deft Dodger (+1 Reflex)

Favored Enemy Humanoid (human)

Feat - Improved Unarmed Strike

Feat Human - Exotic Weapon Prof - Shuriken

 

Skills - don’t remember exactly, sheet isn’t in front of me:

Acrobatics, Craft (alchemy), Disable Device, knowledge (local), perception, Survival, Stealth

 

Gear- I took some liberties here for flavor:

Mwk Studded Leather, Batarangs(shuriken shaped like a bat available in a lethal or non lethal variety), smoke bombs (combine thunderstone and smoke stick in one thrown item same price as both combined), Mwk thieves tools, sap, spiked gauntlets x 2 (his sharp things sticking out of his arms), Grapnel: (Light Crossbow + 50ft silk rope + Mwk grappling hook + 100gp to account for the “gnomish winch”) I would have loved to make it a hand crossbow, but didn’t want to waste two feats on exotics.  I just tacked on cost to the various gear to use up the gold from rich parents and still leave him with a good kit.

 

He made level two and I chose an alt. Option for weapon style: thrown weapon.  That gave him bonus feat of Precise Shot without needing Point Blank Shot, but I plan on adding it later.

 

Let me know what you think.

 

My son didn’t have the attention span to stay at the table for long: his cousins were in the pool, so he ended up there.  My friend always plays the Cleric, but he ran Batman as a second character and had a blast with it.

I was thinking something similar. The Vigilante is clearly inspired by Batman, and should have an unarmed combat variant already available...

Just read up on that.  I don’t have that source book, so didn’t know that existed.

 

I agree completely with it seeming to cry out Butman.  Ultimately I was trying to a) keep it simpler b) use the books I own, rather than Archive of Nethys.  But that Vigilante class will be a good next iteration if my son starts gaining more interest and finesse with the process.

Also the Urban Ranger might be easier for a 5 year old. 

 

Besides, the cool part of Batman is the Batman part of it. The Bruce Wayne half of Batman's life is just there to pay for batarangs.

I'm Bat errr inspired by Batman!!

 

Cool concept thou, I do like his combat gear. It really gives the character a gadget man feel but using medieval items (or medieval as you can get with fantasy rpgs now).

Check out a couple of Heroclix that might make some good minis for your son. Nehrun; the Bat God, the Flying Batman and Leatherwing.

      This looks pretty fun. Apologies for formatting on my phone and stuff got lost. They pay a living wage

      Just pulled these out of the drawer.  One of these Orcs was next in line on the Bones I Kickstarter Rewards image, so I’ll try to squad-paint them together to save time. They have been cleaned of mold lines.  The spearman’s spear was very bent, as was the great sword.  So, those got weapon swapped with basic weapons from Bones 3.  Those are darker grey.  Washed them, so just waiting for them to dry.  Also had to gap fill spearman’s wrists.

      I’ve been working on this dragon too.
      It has some serious lean.  In order to try to address this, I cut the front feet away from the back feet, and from each other.  I was hoping gluing the to the base separately would do it, but no!

      Still serious lean.
      I decided to pin the feet to the base, but as I played with it, realized the back feet, left and right front feet would all have to be at different levels.  
       

      It’s now straight and erect.  I had to chop and reposition the tail for this, or else the tip dipped below the level of the base.  Now I need to sculpt green stuff supports around these pins.  Then I’ll try to turn them in to rocks.

      Starting up another, now that Janan is done.
      Satheras, Male Warlock.  He had a really bent staff.  On the behind shot you can see I cut it off at the hand, wedged a bit out and re glued it into a straighter angle.  I also cut him off his integral base, since it had no texture.
       



      Hoping to try to get a little better at OSL on him, with a green gem in the staff.

      Pathfinder Red Dragon #60028 is a hefty beastie and I definitely did not paint him red. Instead I tried a rainbow piece for Pride 2020 (finished 8/1/2020). Also my first painted model posted here. Pardon my photography skills. I used cut up Caryatid column #77378 for a bit of terrain on the base. My biggest metal model to date.
