Murder's Mark, Pathfinder 1st Edition

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

In light of additional free time, I'd like to start another PBP.

Maybe I'll be able to get prior ones going again, if people are interested.

We'll be doing Murder's Mark.  A Pathfinder Module for four 1st level characters.

 

From www.paizo.com

An urban mystery adventure for 1st-level characters.

Everyone in the fishing town of Ilsurian is excited when the legendary Umbra Carnival rolls into town—even if the show is run by members of the much-maligned Varisian ethnic group. With strange and exotic beasts, scandalous performances, games of chance, and all the other fun of a traveling fair, who could resist such an opportunity for entertainment?

Unfortunately for both the town and the circus, however, entertainment isn’t the only opportunity the carnival presents. 

 

 Core Rulebook, Advanced Player's Guide, Advanced Race Guide are OK.

 

Character Generation:

Attributes: 4d6, reroll all 1's, drop lowest die.  This will yield attribute rolls of 6-18.

Average Starting Gold for class.

Alignments: LG, NG, CG, LN, TN.

 

The hope would be that once we finish this one, we'll be able to start another with the same characters...

Do you have the core Rulebook?

 

If not, the rules were posted here.

Focus on the Core Rulebook.

I always tell people if it’s your first foray into Pathfinder/DND, fighter is a good first class.  It’s a little more complicated with all the feat choices, but for first level it’s easier than worrying about spells and class features.  Since this will be first level, we can definitely use it as a teaching forum for you.  If you’ve played DND 3.0/3.5/4/5th editions, you will know how to play Pathfinder.

Ok. I've played one game of 3.5 and a lot of 5e, so hopefully it won't be too hard.

If you've played 3.5, then you'll get Pf 1e. It's more or less D&D 3.75. Paizo took some of the rules & refined them but overall kept the game as it was.

I don’t see Hero Labs mentioning it, but you have an extra HP.  So, I’m assuming “Favored Class: Oracle +1 HP?

 

Also, Religion Traits mention being tied to a particular deity.  Divine Warrior lists Lawful Good, being trained by militaristic clerics of a particular deity.  But that kind of seems a little off for an Oracle.  Does your character worship a single deity?  I’ll allow it if you fit it into the back story...

      Okay, with Reapercon coming up I will be running some Stargrave & Frostgrave games. So I have been in the position with transporting BOXES of minis and terrain before, and even though I have a truck, I thought that there might be an easier way to carry the stuff. Both of the 'Grave games are heavy terrain and while this is part of their charm, it will be much easier if I can limit the number of boxes going to Texas with me. Then the other day in Hobby Lobby, I was trying to figure out how to build this stuff, when I found their collapsed gift boxes. Perfect! And CHEAP! So I hit them with some variety of spray paint and then used the Plastic Mesh for windows after they dried. I am a bit concerned because I tried good old Elmer's Glue and I am not 100% confident in it's ability to work on the plastic of the mesh. So, everything is drying tonight and tomorrow will be the acid test when I try folding the boxes into their flat configuration. Anyway, here are the pics as I went along.

      I figured if he's operating underground most of the time, he should blend in.

      Seasonal: Petey for Deep Dish Pizza Day
      Heavy Mod: Tree of Despair victim: want to reposition head, ropes, spread legs, gouge out middle and sculpt intestines to look like his torturers eviscerated him.

      So, I have had a good experience with RCL this year.  I came into it late in January, and have already cleared 31 minis.  That is almost twice my usual yearly production.  Then I thought I knocked it out of the park last year with 50.  If I continue this pace I hope to finish 100+ minis this year.  My motivation is to plow through Bones I Kickstarter minis.  Because I have all my B3/4/5 minis waiting, and just added my pledged Bones 6 stuff to the list!
       
      Not including my Quarterlies, here is my planning list for May.  Points listed to the left.
       
      May

      7 Duo Anval Half Orc Fighter.
      5 New Release Old Kobold
      4 Theme Scales/Claws - owlbear?
      4 Limited Palette - purple, brown, blue-Mummy
      3 Monster - Kobold Metal
      3 PC - Almaran
      1 Freebie-? Ral Partha Kobold
