Game Description:

Expedition to Castle Ravenloft by Wizards of the Coast reworked for a near-future/modern science-fantasy setting using a customized version of the Pathfinder rules supplemented with d20 Modern rules that I call the Dark Files Setting. Visit the Dark Files website for details about this hybrid Pathfinder system, as well as additional background information about the setting beyond that provided here.

So casters are all allowed? (assuming "negotiate and brainstorm possible modifications")

Been looking for a pathfinder game to catch my interest. This looks like a lot of fun.

Interesting setting, I've been looking for a future/modern-ish game for a while.

A few questions for what I have in mind....

- Any changes to the Psychic Warrior or Feral Warrior path?

- Since you're limiting it to Humans is it possible to have the Psionic Aptitude trait for favored class?

- With the addition of guns, do you expect combat to lean heavily to ranged? I'd hate to make a melee oriented char only to end up useless.

- Will this be strictly urban or a mix of natural & urban environments?


And the basic concept to see if it fits...

A lycanthrope who uses training and focus to prevent full transformation but can manifest the positive traits of his condition when needed.

Yes and yes. I'm currently working on modifications to the magic rules suited to the setting and will post to the Dark Files website when they're done, hopefully no later than this weekend.

Stats will be announced when I call for character creation. I will say this much, it'll be a point buy system.

Yes for psychic warrior feral path (as is); no for lycanthrope (OSIRs regulations).

No for psionic aptitude. Humans just have to live with their relative disadvantages.

Guns and ranged weapons of other sorts are ubiquitous. Only crazy people want to actually engage enemies up close and personal. That said, OSIRs doesn't exactly recruit people who are risk averse.

So I know you don't necessarily want a barbarian application, but I have the urge to apply with a claymore-wielding, hard-nosed Irishwoman. Sound okay?

A descendant of Jack Churchill?
