Game Description

DescriptionThe sand swirls across the dunes, and flies, stinging, into your eyes. No tears left, you scrape the sand out with your cracked and bleeding hands. You move to shield your eyes from the burning sun to look ahead. A camel bleats from the caravan stretching into the distance.

Your tongue is swollen... and your canteen is dry.

Welcome to Katapesh!
A land of deserts, wonder, and most of all free trade. Gnolls wander here, and a wise traveler knows to respect the desert. From whatever your background, you find yourself traveling by caravan from the town of Solku in Katapesh. It has been a week since you set out, and the only vista has been one of dunes and dust. You have been hired as a mercenary by Garavel, a no-nonsense factor of a merchant princess, and she waits for you at your destination, Kelmarane.

I will be running the Legacy of Fire adventure path. We will start out with part one and see how it goes. If everyone is enjoying themselves and I feel like we have party cohesion, I will continue with the rest of the adventure path.

I don't think we'll quit after part one unless things are really bad.

Sources
  • Everything in the Pathfinder PRD
  • All Classes and Feats from the APG Play-test are OK, but you have to sell them to me. There needs to be a good reason why you're a witch and not a wizard. Please note that when the APG comes out, I may require you to update your character to the new standards, and it may hurt.
  • NO Races from the Bestiary.
  • Other Feats, Equipment, and Prestige Classes may be accepted from official Paizo material. These will be approved on a case by case basis.(i.e. don't count on taking a feat, class, or buying some piece of equipment until you've checked it with me.)

Character Creation
  • All characters will start at level 1. 1st level HP will be at max, and for golds, you may either take the average or roll for it. Once you have made your decision, it cannot be changed.
  • I prefer the High Fantasy 20 Point buy found here. But, if you prefer, you may roll the heroic method. Beware, unless your roll is truly abysmal (read less than +3 to all modifiers total), you will be stuck with those scores.
  • You will select two traits for this campaign. Please select traits from here or campaign traits specific to the campaign can be found in the forum. I suggest taking one of the campaign traits but it is not required. These are to be story seeds, and should have some bearing on your background.
  • Please make an effort to make your character a part of Golarion with a legitimate reason to be in Katapesh at the beginning of the adventure. Those who do so will be looked upon more favorably when it comes to their applications. Natives to the area are nice, but not required. Again some information on the setting can be found here. Beware, there are many spoilers to be found, so do your best to avoid them.

About Your ApplicationPlease make your application in private text in the appropriate thread in the forum.
If necessary, we can always re-adjust party balance later, or we could just run with whatever pops up (more lifelike!). The format should be something like this:
Character Name:
Character Sheet:
Gender:
Age:
Race:
Class:
Alignment:
Traits:
Background:
Description:
Personality:


Also, feel free to tell me about yourself as a gamer, and why I should select you as opposed to the other applicants. This is not required, but it may help set you apart. Like I will say later, Newbies are welcome, just let me know, and tell me why you are interested.

DM's Notes
  • This will be my first time as a DM. I will do my best to keep the story engaging and entertaining, but I will need your help. Any and all suggestions and comments are welcome.
  • That being said, I will still be the DM and will have final ruling.
  • Newbie players are also welcome!
  • A note on my schedule: My weekends are often not my own, so my posting can and will be disrupted and spotty Saturday through Monday. Please feel free to engage your fellow players during those periods; Don't let my inability to post cripple your fun, just don't expect timely responses from the DM.
  • A note on your schedule: I expect all players to post at least every other day, if not daily or more (of course excepting weekends :) ). PBP combat drags like none other when everyone has to wait on you. If you must be away for an extended period of time, I have made a thread for you to post in, and someone will run your character for a bit.
  • If combat begins to drag terribly, I may seek alternatives similar to the skill challenge mechanic. Stupid Idea
  • A note on alignment: All PCs should be heroic, with all that entails. I will not accept any Evil characters... I will accept Neutral characters, but you must really sell their heroism. I don't expect your character to be a goody-two-shoes; In, fact I love a conflicted or dark hero. I just want your character to have good intentions.
  • I will be using the golarion specific languages, found here.
  • I am not an English teacher, nor will I ever be, but I like to see decent spelling, grammar, clean sheets and posts.
  • To quote another DM: I am not a literary champion, nor I can post blocks and blocks of role-playing text. So my interactions will be short and to the point most of the time.
  • I want this to be a roleplay game and not a rollplay game. I will still use mechanics, etc., but I expect your focus to be on developing your character, not racking up XP.
  • Finally, and most important, this game should be about having fun! If you are not enjoying yourself, please let me know! I've set up a comments and suggestion box for just such a purpose. If you have any suggestions that you feel would make the game experience better for yourself or your fellow players (or me!), please share!
