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.

 

http://legacy.aonprd.com

 

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.

I may be interested in this one, kinda of a refresher on Pf 1 rules again.

 

I think I might look at the Oracle. I'm not sure of race.

So, that’s 4.  Please work on characters and try to post up in the next few days.  I’d like to get this going soon.  @ImperialOfficer feel free to ask questions here, or PM me.

Ok, re-installed Herolabs Classic. I think I'll make up a Aasimar Oracle for this one. I'll work on it today & hopefully get it up later tonight.

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

You’ll pick it right up.  Much closer to 3.5 than 5.  More math/bonus/penalty tracking than 5e.

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...

      A small group of Goblins to use as opponents in Sellsword & Spellslingers or any other game.

      Well, in case you haven't noticed, I'm on a bit of a goblin streak. Those pyros were fun, but now it's the Pathfinder Goblin Warriors!
       
      As I did previously, I took a picture of them out in the backyard, just to see how they'd look in as realistic of an environment as it's gonna get, another in my little "Mini pictures area" (Spoiler: It's literally just my desk with a piece of white paper behind it. Sorry to ruin the magic! ), and lastly one of my favorite goblin. Any constructive criticism is welcome!
       
      Sidenote: I'm still not confident enough to try out eyes. I'll get to that eventually.

      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.
