No worries.  I found it.  AON references Ultimate Wilderness.  It’s not on the legacy site I usually use.   What I had found on wikis mentioned using stats for raven, but they just mean everything else like the Bestiary Entry.

 

It gives you +3 linguistics.

Cool, I was wondering as d20pfsrd had the same thing as AON.

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

Is that Frogwarts?  

I’m ok.  Can’t get these posts to “stay followed,” so I’m lapsing.   Thanks for checking in.  I’ll try to organize a post this week.

After a failed raid upon some Chelish mercenaries in the Mwangi, Lorak was taken as a slave back to Cheliax. Eventually escaping, he sought refuge in an monastery where he studied with the monks for a year and developed an appreciation for the teachings of Abadar. While his nature has been somewhat tempered by his training he still felt too cooped up and desiring to return to the jungle, after a year left for the city of Kintargo. There he took employment upon the Jenivere as a able seaman.

His size and powerful form covered with tattoos is intimidating, but he tends to be unobtrusive, preferring observation and discipline over rash action. Still he understands the value of a first strike and often ends the fights he gets in (a favorite pastime to bet upon by the crew of the Jenivere) quickly. He supports the chain of command upon the ship, as it is the lawful authority, but wouldn't allow himself to be made a prisoner again, even if it was attempted by lawful authority.

Sabine is a tall rangy woman with bronzed skin, dark eyes and even darker hair.  Dressed in a blend of styles native to the Mwangi tribesfolk, her hide armor is festooned with talisman and fetishes made from twisted bits of wood, stone, bone and feathers.  When not dealing with others, her eyes are often unfocused, as if she is looking at something that no one else can see.  She can be heard holding conversations, sometimes with the parrot (Rika) that perches on her shoulder sometimes to the empty air.  Sabine came aboard in Quent.  She is returning to the Mwangi Expanse after her pilgrimage to lost Lirgen in the Sodden Lands.  When asked, she is quick to lend a hand, and is often found concocting herbal remedies for rope and sun burns.

 

At night, she finds a quiet out of the way place and stares at the stars for hours on end.  Occasionally she makes notes in a little book she has.  She doesn't conceal what she writes but it mearly seems to be a list of numbers, angles, dates and astrological symbols.

Man, Unsworn Shaman get the short end of the stick.They get locked out of Extra Hex

PathfinderSocietySymbol.gif Extra Hex

Source Advanced Class Guide pg. 147, Advanced Player's Guide pg. 160
You have learned the secrets of a new hex.

Prerequisites: Hex class feature.

Benefit: You gain one additional hex. You must meet the prerequisites for this hex. If you are a shaman, it must be a hex granted by your spirit rather than one from a wandering spirit.

Special: You can take this feat multiple times. Each time you do, you gain another hex.

 

I don't have a Spirit; only Minor spirits and wandering spirits.  But the way I read this, I can't even take one of the normal non-spirit Shaman Hexes. 

 

I'll just have to figure out what else to spend my feats on.

I present to you Arune Loghopper, cousin of the mighty BoDeep Swamphopper

 

https://www.myth-weavers.com/sheet.html#id=2181957

 

Arune is a mottled shiny bright green and brown which blends into his natural swamp home perfectly.  He has orange eyes with pupils ringed with gold and a continual smile on his face.  He has a habit of perching on banisters tables and fences; because he can.  He is generally mischievous and playful.  in a world where death is common, he's learned to take it all for whatever humor value he can get out of it. (when your race is a favorite food of giant eagles you can either cringe or smile and set a pointy stick to repel the dive.) He also loves magic of any type and will use it with any excuse, sometimes with not so great results (you can start a camp fire with a firebolt, but I wouldn't stand to close) He wears a bright chain mail shirt, given to him by his cousin and a rapier at his side which he bought with the first money he made on his own.  He is traveling to see the world after completing his studies and boarded the ship at Magnimar near his home swamp just north of Sandpoint.

 

he is not a quiet Grippli and will try to pump just about anyone for their adventures or knowledge, especially if they show off some type of magic or look different.  he likes to sing (he can't) and play instruments (he can't do that either and people keep taking them from him for 'safe-keeping')

 

the only thing i have left is to actually pick his spells.  I should have them shortly.

sorry.  Got rid of quotes.

 

Dilvish: you can respec if you want.  It appears you may be the healer, so life would be useful.  Fire looked potent.

 

KangarooRex: is it a comp shortbow or longbow?

Shortbow. It fit better with the character than a plain shortbow or a crossbow

Nah, I'm good.  Just noting things things about the class.  I still like the idea of being Unsworn.  Just means I get to be...creative...with some of my feat choices.  It will do me good to go a non standard way.  Also, will there be down time for crafting and such?  I like the idea for flavor but don't want sink a bunch of futture resources into something that isnt feasible.

Good point.  The magus can do a lot of creative work but it's not worth following if the crafting time is limited

well, for me I like the idea of going down the path of magic item feats. If I remember correctly a lot of magic creation feats come available at level 3 and with his scores Arune is going to have a pretty good create item roll.  So it would be wonderous items at 3rd, wands at 6th and arms and armor at 9th.  In pathfinder wands are some of the most useful tools around, especially for a mage that can essentially dual cast!  and by ninth the group will probably be looking for custom arms and armor.

 

To be honest, the concept of a frog in a wetsuit working at a forge tickles the heck out of my funny bone ::D:

Cheaper items like scrolls and potions and alchemical items should eventually be do-able, since they usually take one day or less each. 
 

For multi-day items, let me check ahead.  Part of the AP has a time tracking component, so it may be a little harder to pull off.

      Ok.
      Prepping for the next Bones I WIP.
      The Eyes Have It!
      I have this in metal too, so I’m planning to do both together.  You can see I did some surgery on the metal one.  Lots of hole drilling after cleaning mold lines.

      If this has been posted I'm not finding it.  This kickstarter is a rules conversion type.  The game exists in Swedish and has been translated into English.  The next step appears to be releasing a version for 5E.  Of course, if you are like me and enjoy reading different rule sets, the original books are obviously still for sale.  The price point for the kickstarter doesn't appear to be much different from what they have published, unless I'm missing something in the currency conversion.
       
      Ruins of Symbaroum for 5E
       
      They also have a gallery of some of their art.

      The acclaimed setting of Symbaroum has enticed and fascinated fans of tabletop roleplaying games since the launch of the game in 2016. Now this dark and mysterious world welcomes an even wider audience, with the production of a Player’s Guide, Gamemaster’s Guide and Bestiary adapted for 5E, published under the Open Gaming License. Note that you will need the core 5E rulebooks to fully enjoy Ruins of Symbaroum.
       

       
      Welcome to the world of Symbaroum
       

       
      The rich and nuanced Symbaroum setting revolves around the Ambrians – a civilization that two decades ago were forced to flee their ancestral soil after a devastating war. Their new and promised land borders on the vast forest of Davokar, covering the remnants of the Empire of Symbaroum which fell into ruin hundreds of years ago. Brimming with natural resources and mythical treasures, the forest calls out to the Ambrians to be explored and plundered, but the road into its depths lays far from open. Not only are the shadows beneath the foliage fraught with danger, monsters and infectious Corruption; there are also the elves of the Iron Pact who have vowed to die to keep anyone from disturbing the ruins of old, warning that the ancient evil of Symbaroum stirs in its sleep. 
       

      About ten years ago, Queen Korinthia of the Ambrians finally vanquished Chieftan Haloban and his Jezites.
       
      Now you can join in the adventure! Seek out the barbarian clans to trade or to plunder their treasuries; establish a base of power among princes, guilds, or rebellious refugees in the capital city of Yndaros; survive encounters with trolls, dark-minded beasts, and undead warlords. But always remember the warnings spoken by the wardens of the forest: tread carefully and do not disturb the ruins of old, for the horrors of Davokar are about to awaken!

      Here was my entry for the 16th quarterly  Reaper Facebook Contest.  I was honored to receive an honorable mention.  There were dozens of fantastic entries.  
       
      I wanted to try a white dragon coloration.  I have Deathsleet in my queue, so this is a test run.  His scales are Dragon White.  The ventral surfaces are more of a bone color with Creamy Ivory and Linen White, with Sepia Wash.
       
      His dagger is a green NMM.  His eyes are gem-like, not lizard pupils.  The skirt completes the “triangle of interest” green color.  I rebased him on a Micro Arts 30mm Sewer base.
       
      I had a lot of fun with this one.  I wanted to keep him as a rogue, so I chose a dagger and loot bag from his hand choices.  I also painted his armor as leather with some gold NMM.
       
      Enjoy.

      Starting post for the upcoming Starfinder: Attack of Swarm pbp I will be running. I'm mainly using this to get a feel for Starfinder & such as I'm hoping to run a game or 2 at ReaperCon 2021.
       

       
      Paizo Inc.
      (Part 1 of 6 Attack of the Swarm Adventure Path)
       
      (as quoted from the Paizo product page:)
       
      "Suskillon Needs You!
      As the ever-ravenous threat of the insectile Swarm surges across another system in the Vast, the heroes are part of the defense effort. They must fight back against waves of foes and rescue civilians, including a shirren priest of Hylax whose temple seems to be of particular interest to the invaders. By relying on their wits—and each other—the heroes just might survive the Swarm onslaught."
       
      Suskillon System
       
      The Story so far..........
       
      It has been 6 months to the day, since the Swarm* first touched down on Suskillon in a bloody conflict named the Battle at Stone Sea. After the Swarm punched through the planet’s aerial and orbital defenses, its components landed near the Stone Sea, a large freshwater lake surrounding a dormant volcano. The Fifth Battalion of the Suskillon Defense Force (SDF**) was closest to the site of contact and held the Swarm back long enough for the SDF to mobilize other battalions to the area. Stories of the battle have already reached near-mythical heights, as most members of the Fifth Battalion were killed in glorious, terrible combat.
       
      Since then, the SDF has fought a losing battle against the Swarm. Though Suskillon is a friendly trading partner with the Pact Worlds, the planet’s government has yet to officially request aid, with many afraid that the Pact Worlds will claim their planet as a protectorate in “payment” for such help. However, that hasn’t stopped volunteers and mercenaries from other systems (including the Pact Worlds and the Veskarium) from journeying to Suskillon to join in the fight against the invasion. The Swarm is relentless, though, and it has already overran and taken nearly half of the planet.
       
      *The Swarm is a collective menace of sentient insect-like creature bent on expanding it's colonies by devouring anything in it's wake. The Swarm doesn't negotiate with people it just consumes it's host & whatever it's host is on. The Shirren were part of the Swarm, but during "The Gap" they were able to free themselves from it's collective mind & established their own colonies. Unfortunately, The Swarm has the ability to adapt to the challenges conquering it's foes & were able to follow the Shirren & left most of their new colonies in ruins due to the Shirren's connection with the Hylax, a divine entity the Swarm are hellbent on wiping from existence.
       
      This also led them to come in contact with the Veskarium, the system of the military-like reptilian humanoids. The Swarm was so overwhelming that the Vesk (as their race is called) called in the Pact Worlds (home to many, but notably humans) & formed an alliance to beat back the Swarm. This has only temporarily stopped the Swarm from taking over both their worlds.
       
      Only time will tell when that may happen........
       
      ** Suskillon Defense Force (or the SDF for short) is the military force of planet Suskillon. In the beginning it was your standard military but as the war with the Swarm has progressed, the leaders of the SDF have brought it whoever wanted to fight the Swarm. Whether or not these folk due to it for honorable reason, matters not, as the SDF needs bodies to win the war against the Swarm. So far, the war has only gone the way of the Swarm. The Fifth Battalion is the unit, you the PCs are assigned to. Welcome aboard, solider!
       
      The Present...
       
      You have answered Suskillon's need for heroes & saviors, whether it was due to you were already in the SDF as career military, a merc, a prisoner whose sentence was to serve or die, or just someone who wanted to help out in any way you can, etc etc. You been enlisted into the SDF & have been asigned to the Fifth Battalion & have been sent to Camp Cavalier, a small military encampment outside the capitol city of Brinnoa. Brinnoa is located on the planet's most populated continent in the southern hemisphere. The commanding officer is Major Jaldamarrak, a Vesk with a impressive military background (feel free to give me, Culture or Profession (soldier) check to learn more about this individual).
       
      The adventure begins in the middle of "Dead Winter", one of Suskillon's extended, extremely cold weather period. Also, much the surprise to most people, the daily attacks of the Swarm have died off, almost to a point that if not for their previous attacks & destruction, one might think they have decided to retreated & focus on some other system.
       
      You all begin inside a room outside the commanding unit at Camp Cavalier, awaiting on when you can see the Major.

      Here is the big boss of the Bones I Orc Warband.  With all of these Orcs they are shadowed with a purple color.  I added some green freckles/sun spots for a little interest.
       
      For his shield trophies, I included some skin tones and hair colors that could represent elf, dwarf, human, goblin and undead.  The wood planks and boards on the shield are freehand.  Kavorgh got a little extra love with the bloodstain on the axe.
       
      WIP here:

      And the group shot.  Enjoy.
