Game Description:

Estimated Party Size: 4-6

While I love the entire Pathfinder Setting, two particular aspects of the game have always intrigued me: The Kingmaker AP and the Worldwound. So I decided for my first attempt at GMing, I've decided to blend the two together to form Kingmaker: Crusader State.

I'm looking for 4-6 players who would be interested in playing the Kingmaker AP through the lens of forming a support state for Mendev and Lastwall. You would come into conflict with the River Kingdoms and Brevoy, who both eye the unclaimed Greenbelt covetously and, perhaps, bandits and other forces that would resist the idea of another Crusader State being formed. The Church of Iomadae, with cooperation from other Good Deities, would sponsor your efforts— and while the worship of these Gods isn't necessary, a desire to prevent Demons from conquering the world is.

Game Description

A terrible rumor is whispered throughout Avistan. The Wardstones preventing the Demons of the Worldwound from escaping it's bounds are wavering. The long-standing stalemate between the Crusaders and the Demonic forces will not last forever.

The Church of Iomadae knows the only way Golarion can withstand the Abyss is to take the fight to the Worldwound, to drive this otherworldly evil back to whence it came and find a way to close the rift. But Lastwall and Mendev, the only remaining Crusader states are stretched too thin. Their resources dedicated to survival, within nothing left over to mount an offensive.

A new, fresh ally is needed. One who can provide relief to Mendev and Lastwall. One that can support a fresh Crusade and lead the charge to reclaim the lands that were lost. And since such an ally does not exist, it must be created.

The Greenbelt, the Stolen Lands, whatever the fools of Brevoy and the River Kingdoms may call it; lies unclaimed and unsettled to the east of Mendev and Lastwall. Close enough to provide supplies, trade and vital reinforcements, yet far enough away from the Worldwound to escape its immediate threat. That is where the hopes of the Crusaders, Avistan and the whole of Golarion rests.

And so a new crusade, a crusade of diplomacy, of colonization and of nation building must begin. Brave, wise and noble individuals must be chosen to lead this endeavor, upon which the fate of all resides.

P33J: Any problem with my application as it is?

I'm assuming that Iomedae's church is not all powerful or very rich, so it might have to accept funding and personnel from Cheliax and the church of Asmodeus.

The mythical parallel is how Sarenrae and Asmodeus worked together to defeat and chain Rovagug.

Well to be honest, My character has no want to be something like a king, that being said its in my character profile that she wants to be a person of station. (Because shes sick of being pushed around)

And I was going along the line of.
'character is lawful and looked on as being filled with anger and hate' so maybe the Church picked her because they think she can be reformed.

And I am still thinking about taking up Assassin as a PtC But I would need the GM to kind of help that. (Give me a quest to kill some one) Which could totally work in a King Maker Setting.
_
You might also look at it from the point of my character has never done anything to illegal, so there is no real reason for the church to not take me. (Also the character has technically seen the stag lord before) So knows at least a little bit about him.

I meant to say Evil. in my last post. *though I agree, Evil* fits better. How could I say i agree, and then say something different. <_<;

Well ya and its Ice cold with a mean stream, looking for vengeance and not caring if she has to hurt some one to get it. My character is not going to go around burning down orphanages, but if she has to hurt some one or beat information out of some one to get her revenge she is going to.

Hey so I have a Druid Sorcerer Mystic theurge I would like to play out I never get to play it through all the way cause people quiet out on me. If you still got room the character is all ready to go.

Applications are still open.

They will close tomorrow and I'll send invites within the next two days.

Thanks again for all the interest.

Well one more day it would seam.

I will be accepting applications until the end of the Sunday Night Football lol.

1 thing I've noticed, outside of a few rangers and a monk, we're exceptionally light on Front-liners, which is a-ok because this campaign doesn't always require a tank and I'm all for weird composition parties, but if any of you were thinking about applying as a Paladin, Barbarian, Fighter or Cavalier/Samurai I would encourage you to do so
