The Rise of the Hags

The Coast of the Riven Sea - Forum

My first attempt at running a 3.X style game in over 8 years, I'm happy to bring you all to the expanded world of the City of Stormhawk. Now we've crossed the Riven Sea, and found ourselves on a new continent in a new city called Shavren, the City of a Thousand Races.

The game will start at level 6. Six players will be accepted. Recruitment closes on January 24, in 12 days, at which point I will take some time to select my players. Accepted players will be informed.

Character Creation Rules and house rules listed there.
Post applications there.

Questions? Comments? Thoughts? Post them here in the Ad thread!

No, I will not open an OOC thread before the game begins--discussion can happen here in this thread! You can also find me pretty readily on the official Myth-Weavers Discord, any time between 0000 and 0700 Mountain Time.

But I want to play X from this source that you haven't allowed, can-- Immastop you right there, no. The allowed sources and races are the allowed sources and races. All of them are available either on the Spheres of Power wiki or the d20pfsrd. You have lots to choose from!

Is this gestalt? No.
Okay but can it be? Please no.

So, What is this game... yanno, about?

Things have been quiet as of late in Shavren, and your characters likely have some times and reputation being the level that you're at. However, there is a hidden threat in the mountains coming for Shavren: A coven of hags has formed, and is plotting against the city, raising an army of goblins, orcs, ettins, and worse creatures to attack the coastal haven. Whether it's for love of rewards, seeking glory, defending your home, or just because it's the right thing to do, your character will need some reason to want to keep Shavren safe.

The adventure will take your characters out of the city and into the surrounding woods and nearby mountains. If the first adventure is successful, this game will branch off into an ongoing campaign that takes place in the regions surrounding Shavren.

I look forward to seeing your applications!

Game Description:

Whether you've lived in the city of Shavren for long or not, there are a few things you've just never managed to get used to. The sheer variety of peoples living here is one of those things, and the transient population is another. You feel like you hardly have a chance to get to know someone, before they've moved on to somewhere else. Still, for better or worse, Shavren, the City of a Thousand Races, is your home for now.

You walk along the ports, where the cold salty air blows in from the east, watching the airships from Stormhawk dock along the towers and the ocean-faring ships unload their cargo. The sun is beginning to dip low in the sea, and there's a sense of inner peace here.

The Lights forbid anything should disrupt it.

Elsewhere, goblins gather around a terrifying wolf-like creature, howling dark epithets to the mountain-pierced sky, orcs corral ettins together, and begin outfitting them with orc-craft armor and weapons; and above it all, three hideous-looking women watch over it all and cackle.

War is coming to Shavren.

Sorry if it has been asked before, but navigating on my phone is a nightmare. Are the variant multiclassing rules ok?

Came across an idea for the character. If applicable, RP wise, the Dorits is pretty much a janitor, Going with the Synthesis Inevitable Eidolon, I am wondering for RP and gameplay. Using the swallow whole ability which does bite damage, 1d6 bludgeon damage, can I spend the point on the energy damage 1d6, but use it to swallow random trash he finds like a trash compactor. Of course can also be used on small enemies. An OCD neat freak Darn, nevermind. Swallow Whole is 9th level.
Guess I can see about constrict instead.

Do you have any issues with multi-archetyped characters? I have a monk build I like to do derivations of a "mystic sensei" that buffs other people in a bard-like manner... but I end up using four different archetypes that all stack (Ki Mystic, Monk of the Lotus/Drunken Master (depending on the character), Sensei, and Qinggong). Would that be an issue?

Also, can we start out Middle Aged if we are willing to accept the penalties?

Finally, to be clear, you are allowing one to choose from the Tiefling Alternate Race Trait table?

First, as per the core rules archetypes can be taken provided any abilities they modify have not already been modified.

No, you may not start out as middle aged.

Yes you can play alternate tiefling.

Yes it is, we have at least one player building one right now.

Some things to note, if you don't have the Wyrmtouched materials, I wouldn't use it as we ran into some issues figuring out how it's breath weapon and feats worked until we figured out that it was referencing the Wyrmtouched stuff.
