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.

20-point buy, only 1 ability pre-racial bonuses can be bought at 18 and only 1 can be bought at 7.

Background: 3-4 Sentences. Please include: Region of Golarion they're from, most defining moment of character's life thus far (simple as receiving their first sword or casting first spell to as complicated as being a Half-orc raised by Dwarves), and how they were recruited for this mission.

Motivations: 3 Bullet Points.
Examples: • Greed • Glory • Power
or • Redemption • Hatred of Demons • Devotion to Sarenrae

Goals: (3 short sentences)
1 Short-term attainable goal (I want to clear the Thorn River of Bandits)
1 Mid-term attainable goal (I want to become a _________ or become known a great __________)
1 Long-term pie-in-the-sky goal (I want to seal the Worldwound, defeat a Balor, conquer Brevoy etc)

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.

I'll let you use a spear, treat it like a monk's spade, but I'm not sure I'll let you have reach.

Thanks, P33J.

How far afield are the PCs allowed to hail from? If originating from Cheliax is not feasible (because it's too far away), what about someone exiled from Cheliax to Brevoy and offered a chance to go home if and only if he helps build a new crusader state?

My thinking is that Asmodeus and his clerics and other worshipers would want the Worldwound contained, yes?

Making a note that the Spear is by all standards a pretty sub-par two handed weapon. (Being Simply)
1d8 x3. (Battleaxe) (Brace, 20ft thrown)
So its actully really no better then a longsword/battleaxe.
The spear, being a battleaxe with extra abilities (brace, 20ft range increment), is no better than a battleaxe? Even if we say that the battleaxe is better because it's one-handed, martial weapon proficiencies are harder to get than simple, so those weapons are meant to be better. Further, you can't normally flurry with a battleaxe, either. Almost all the Monk weapons are far worse than a spear. Just sayin'.

Spear's a simple weapon, right? There's at least three feats in DnD that allow you to flurry with spears. One of them is from Dragon Magazine (Just take Dragon Compendium) and the other one is just flurrying with simple weapon (which a spear is). I think there's something else in Eberron, but I can't be bothered.

And Aptitude/Ki Strike enchancements on the spear. Depending to your interpretation, you may be able to deal unarmed damage through the spear.

There is a lot more use for the starting gold too, thanks to Ultimate Equipment being released, there is a wide variety of interesting tools and items for low level characters which can offer some fun utility.

Radiant, most definately Asmodeus would and I like that idea haha.

btw, multiple applications per player welcome, and don't worry about overlapping, maybe I want a party of Monks for this haha

Also, don't worry about food, you'll be traveling in a Caravan sponsored by the Church, so food, drink and bedrolls will be provided.

Reach... spears don't have reach, that's long spears.

Hmm.. And thinking about going with more of a Dex build I think.

You said long spear didn't you? And you can have weapon finesse on it as well
