The Sea Breeze has been your home, life, and livelihood. An aging merchantman, she's been plying the seas for nearly a century, slowly growing the family wealth and prestige of her owners as ownership and management has been passed from parent to child. Even some of her crew, including her captain, are generational. And now she's gone, stolen by the new first mate and his cronies, her captain dead, and her crew cast adrift in the ocean with little hope for rescue.

The request for a survival-based game has been bandied about, so here you are. The initial part (at least) is going to be a bit different, there is no gear, no gold, and no civilization as you know it. Now before you go and roll up the super-wilds characters you should know that there will be urban occasions further down the road, and much of the campaign will take place on the water. So without further ado, here are the crunchy bits:
  • 20 Point Buy
  • Official Pathfinder Sources (Core, APG, UM, UC, etc.)
  • Dreamscarred Press Pathfinder Psionics
  • Core and Dreamscarred races only
  • No starting gold, no starting gear (muahahaha)
  • Full HP at first level, 1/2+1 base each subsequent level. Example, 1d6 = 4hp, 1d8 = 5hp
  • 1 Trait, 1 Campaign Trait
  • Non-evil

Create a new thread with your character name in the applications folder and please use the application template as a guide for posting your character. A completed sheet is not required, but is highly recommended.

I like to see at least 1 post a day, but life does happen. If there are more 2 days between postings be aware that the game will continue moving along. This takes place on Golarion, so all the standard Pathfinder deities apply.

Game Description:

The Sea Breeze has been your home, life, and livelihood for some time now. You know her crew, her secrets, her quirks, and her whims as well as anyone. But now she's in the hands of someone else. It's time to get her back!

I will have a Gunslinger application up by tomorrow,

Sounds like a lot of fun. I have not played much Pathfinder but plenty of DnD. I'll work on getting something up soon. Since there is already a Psion & Witch application up I am guessing a martial character.

Currently I only have the core and advanced books. What is gunslinger from?

ooooh so Interested!

Gunslinger is from Ultimate Combat. Not sure how well it fits, that's one class I've not really examined, but I'm willing to let someone give it a shot if it makes the final cut

Did some quick looking. I think I'll lean towards Rogue or Corsair if it is available. Swashbuckler type, general handyman.

Would be tempted for a female but there is already 1 female application and doubtful there would be too many on board. Although I guess then there would be strength in numbers to fend off all the sailors.

OK. I was unsure since it's 3rd party but still listed on the SRD. From the description at least it seemed like a good fit. I figure either way the concept will be the same.

Corsair can be used with one caveat: If it proves to be too over the top then I'll have to ask that you change to a standard class.

I'll put in for a Ranger with Two-handed weapon style (for a spear/harpoon)... I mean how was the crew gonna eat without fish?

I would like to point out the PFSRD site is not the official site, but a fan made and ran site. Its a good site but not everything thing there is official. The official site, called the PRD can be found Here. I just bring it up as this is not the first time I have seen confusion over thinking the PFSRD site was official.
