Game Description

Greetings, it's been a while due to life and family. However, I am looking to get a game started and rather than keep it secret on my discord server, I shall offer it here for a change. I've been busy doing system design and I'm putting a pin in that for a bit as interest was mentioned of me running my classless hack again on my server recently. Some might be familiar like my veterans that have played in previous games with it, but others likely aren't aware of what this is. So before I delve into the game info:

My classless hack of pathfinder is an XP buy for *everything* instead of just pick a class and level up gaining what the PF charts tell you. I give you XP to spend to buy attributes, I give you XP to buy Hit Dice, BAB, Saves, Skills, abilities like Weapon Specialization or an Animal Companion or Smite, and you design your own spells within a seed based system I've created. This requires a bit more forethought, planning, and self control in order to create a character than standard PF to avoid spreading your character too thin to survive, so if you are interested and require help, just ask myself or one of my veterans. I've restricted class options that I pulled from for my sanity, I do this on my own without a team I pay and converting every single thing within the PF source list would take a team of underlings to assist me. Therefore, those interested will need to pay attention to sources I allow.

Game Concept

Life thrives along the Dragonfall river far south of the Dhalrang Mountains. All manner of species thrive on both sides of the river, and it has become a region of interest in recent years for many of the nobles to the North. Attempts to colonize the region in any significant way has failed, miserably as the locals are not Human, and tend to see Human interlopers as food. The Dragonfall runs through the Southern end of the continent with the large swath of land being dubbed simply "The Badlands" by outsiders for the hostile environment dominated by Orcs, Goblins, Trolls and all manner of creatures. Even so, the Duke Chester Manfield has come to power at the ripe age of 15 after his fathers passing and has ordered the colonization of the river as a way to expand his power base and make a name for himself.

The call has gone out in which to gather any brave souls willing to risk the dangers of the Badlands and venture south to claim territory for the Duke. Any interested shall be given 1000 gold crowns to equip themselves for the voyage south in order to clear away all manner of undesirables and claim land for the Duke.

Play style


Sandbox tactical RPG focusing on teamwork and survival. You will be far from your country and therefore supply lines and power base of your lord. There's potential for you to work for your lord and gain rewards, or to go rogue, turn bandit by turning on him. You could go native, and carve out a kingdom of your own within the region if it suits you. I will utilize a number of maps procured via Maphammer's patreon to plan encounters, as well as some randomly generated dungeons in case folks decide to buck the plot and look for long lost treasure within a dungeon. I will however, plan on restricting movement to remain within the starting region unless I notify my players I am lifting this restriction. So while a sandbox game, the sandbox is not infinite.

Medium


I shall run this game here, on Myth-Weavers play by post style. I shall link maps via my google drive that I take via screenshots of Fantasy Grounds which I shall use to manage all tokens and maps and my NPC's. Hence my rolls will be done within FG and "Behind the DM screen" as it were. I offer folks the option to use the sidekick bot on my Discord server for dice rolls if they would prefer an alternative method of rolling from the website here, as long as it is done in the #Sandboxrolls channel specifically and copy/pasted into your post with timestamp.
