Narissa lets a uncharacteristic squawk escape from the surprise attack, as the ugly man's hand crossbow goes <THWACK> ! The little shaft of the bolt sinks deep causing her to grunt in pain and bite off the cry that threatened to ring out. The wound is not terrible, yet another one like that could be dangerous.

After drawing in a breath, the female warrior's demeanor is collected once again and she smiles wickedly at the bandit leader. Licking her lips, she coos, "Ooooh, that felt goooood."

"I have been waiting to meet you. I bet you like it rough."


With the obstructions in the room, she cannot manage to easily fly over the pit. Instead, Narissa moves down the walkway and slashes at the man with her ranseur. The bladed point cuts into his arm, flecks of red blood splatter the wall, flying from the polearm's continued follow through.

"Lovely shade of red, lover. Let's dance."


Do you want to play Pathfinder? Having trouble getting into a game to strut your stuff?
Welcome to Adventures in Golarion.


I am going to start a campaign here at Myth-Weavers, my first one at the site, but far from my first foray into GMing PbP games. I have been running many PbP games for almost 3 years now on multiple sites for D&D 3.5ed, Pathfinder, and more.

Expectations
  • Adventures based upon published module material
  • It will feature tactical combats and still be as heavy role-playing as the players can make it.
  • Posting frequency should be about once a day normally, minimum 3 times per week
  • Players should have a reasonable knowledge of PF rules, or at least be able to look things up in the SRD before asking questions

See full list of Expectations Here: Expectations

At the end of the application process, I will select five players to start a series of mini-adventures using
The Curse of the Crimson Throne takes hold of the city! In the shadow of an ailing king, a new ruler gathers power, sending shockwaves through a populace already plagued by unrest and pushing this seaport city to the brink of disaster.

In the face of anarchy, a new band of heroes gathers at the call of a mysterious patron. Strange magic and mysterious prophesies set them on the trail of a common foe; a path that draws them into a struggle to save the city from ruin. Amid the intrigues of kings and generals, heroes and thieves, it’s up to these new heroes to decide whether the rule of a new monarch will usher in a new age of glory or a reign of chaos.
The Curse of the Crimson Throne AP, changing things slightly to match the fictitious city of Parthacia. This is a city in the world of Pathfinder, not specifically located on the map of the Inner Sea so it can be within 2-3 days of anywhere in Golarion if necessary to springboard into other published adventures or APs.

I plan to start things off in away that is more enjoyable for applicants than simply creating a character application and just sitting around to wait for the deadline to come. I am looking for players that want to be creative and work together, their characters interacting with each other as much as their environment. If you want to just roll dice, probably not the game for you.

Anyone interested in becoming a co-DM should contact me via Private Message.

LinksSelection and character generation will be completed in two phases, see the Character Creation Rules and Applications thread.

See the General House Rules thread for additional information on specifics for characters and gameplay.

After reading those threads and there is information that is missing, this Application Questions thread is where to ask them. As I answer questions, the pertinent ones will be added to the first post to find them quickly.

Game Description:

Adventures in Golarion


Adventures in GolarionNew adventurers flock to the bustling seaside city of Parthacia, looking for other like minded souls.
Parthacia

They hope to join with others to travel around the Inner Sea nations, meet interesting monsters and slay them. Here is your chance to step up and make a name for yourself in the world of Golarion—or, at least, to die a noble death in the quest for fortune and glory. If you seek to seal your place among the heroes of this dangerous land, to rise above the masses and achieve immortality in name and deed, then welcome, friend, to your destiny!

Parthacia is city in the Inner Sea, not specifically located on the map, so it can be within 2-3 days of anywhere in Golarion if necessary.
The initial campaign is going to model Parthacia after Korvosa to facilitate running the Curse of the Crimson Throne Adventure Path. Follow on groups will use Parthacia to spring board into other adventures or APs.

Thanks!
Hard to say, CamS. I don't know you and how fast you learn.

PbP gaming is different from table top. Due to it's slow pace it has many advantages. Those of us that are truly enjoying it are proud of our writing and the stories we will help develop with our character interactions.

Often the rolling of dice is just an extension of that.

If you can put together a decent application and role-play in the IC threads, you have an equal chance getting in.

If you are a Computer RPG player at heart and do not enjoy writing, you might find this is not for you. The 3 weeks of IC action can help you decide if you like it or not.

Still trying to think of what to make. I just discovered the swordmaster rogue archetype only for the tengu..Quite interesting, heheh.

Hi Paro! So, I was thinking of an Aasimar cleric of Sarenrae. How do you feel about the "Blood of Angels" companion book, or the Aasimar info on the pathfinder SRD?

Welcome Myth.

Aasimar Cleric is fine, but please read the source books allowed. The SRD has material not on the list (Ultimate Equipment and Advanced Races Guide) that I am using. Only additional source books allowed will be Player's Guides for specific campaigns, and only if a DM is running said campaign.

Posting interest. I like how detailed and thorough Paro's advertisement and game forum seem to be so far.

The recruiting time seems to be a little long, but it might work out as a way to find out who is going to be consistent in posting.

Going to read all the existing posts and threads now. Might take a while.

You don't have to read those IC threads, since your character is not in those scenes yet and would not be privy to that knowledge until they are.

Come on and join the fun.

Perhaps so Paro, but just like you it'll give rs a good insight as to what s/he is in for.

Going to drop in an application myself. Must say, I like the idea of having pre-game rp. Helps keep the players from wandering off, the silly things.

Yes, those people who leave applications until the last minute will get very little RP action and have much less time to prove themselves. Better to get an app in sooner and strut your RP skills as much as possible, yeah?
