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.

Ok.

Here's how we're shaping up...

 

Shaman (Unsworn) - Dilvish - Party Healer?

Cat Burglar - Haldir - Traps?

Unchained Monk - Dwarvenranger - Tank?

Magus - KangarooRex - Arcane

Magus/Rogue/Paladin? - ShadowRaven

 

I'm eager and ready to get this started...

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.

 

mainly just an issue of customization.  If we have access to crafting then we can make custom magic items for the characters.  if the entire campaign is a rush from point a to point b then we should know so we don't waste the feat on something that wont be used in the campaign.  we don't really need to make that decision until 3rd level anyway.

I'm lucky in that I can take item creation feats as hexes.  And I have the capability of changing my hex each day. So I''m not sweating the whole Extra hex thing too much.

I might take a level of sorcerer. But I definitely want to take 4 levels of fighter(brawler).

Plan on fighting unarmed so weapons and armor aren't important to me, but a monk's belt/robes/tattoo would be useful to offset the multiclass slowdown as would something that increases my hitting power.

So, I went and changed tack again, Settled on a ranger rather than any of the concepts I had been running with

"The Brightness beckons, and I must go" Seeking that elusive 'something' since childhood has led him across land, and sea to places strange and foreign. Most recently his far travels led him south to wild and mysterious Garund, the Mwangi Expanse and the mysteries within. Still searching, he has found recent work keeping safe those who had other reasons to explore, and has come to understand the Jungle, it's peoples, and it's many dangers. Boarding the Jenivere to cut back on his travel time, he set to return to the colony, to perhaps venture out on another expedition, and to begin his search again.

@ShadowRaven I think that Serker of Brightness is pre-Core Rulebook.  It says +1 Search when I looked it up, but I’m assuming that is converted to +1 Perception.  Which Knowledge did you give the other +1 to? Geography?  And Favored Class Ranger, +1 hp?

 

The Playing is up.  I’m on pause there giving you guys a chance to post any background you want to share there, questions you want to ask any of the 6 passengers or the cook/captain/first mate.  You are about to sit down for an evening meal.

      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:
