Long Road

Been a Long Time

Sorry for not updating in a while, hope to get some done Tuesday the 12th.

Something to keep in mind for anybody getting feats soon. I will be offering a landed title for people who take Leadership. If you get the title, you get the honor for being a lord. Unfortunately its a vassal position at this point, but honestly can you really complain about being “only” a baron, lord mayor, or bishop?

Yes Tom, if you take animal leadership you can be “lord of the forest” and get the honor and lands.

Mechanically don’t expect any wealth or such, but for role-play purposes you can be addressed by your title. It will also give you a +2 circumstance to talk with other nobles.

I see we have some more background entries now, bringing to total of completed characters up to 5. A hero point to both Drew and Gary. A wiki page has been generated for both of you.

Some great character concepts and backgrounds from you all, yes even you Gary. I look forward to trying to kill them off in a suitable manner.

The wiki pages I generated for the party members has only the basic information that could be discovered with an easy gather information check, as your characters fame or infamy increases additional information can be and will be added. Feel free to edit them yourself, especially if you make extra effort to spread your renown (careful about bragging, it can cost you honor if you go too far).

Show me your honor.

Thank you Tom for your background, a hero point to you as well.

The characters submitted so far have been great. I’ve created a wiki page with link to character sheet for all of you that have submitted sheets so far, with some “public knowledge” info rather than the full background. Similar to what somebody could know about your character with a somewhat easy knowledge roll. As we adventure and you gain renown there will be additional information added, to reflect your reputation and your deeds.

After thinking things through, i will be using the honor system from dragon empires primer. Your starting honor is equal to your level plus charisma score. I will be putting this in your wiki entry, and it will be tracked there. As I generate stats for NPCs, I will put their honor there as well.

The reason for this is mostly for flavor, but also as a way to allow the party additional RP tools past the usual skill checks.

I’ve got some great backgrounds on the characters that have been uploaded so far. Great work Raven and Matt on your characters background, a hero point to both of you for your backgrounds.

Since we are using a wiki format for the campaign background, this means that anybody can edit stuff. This means that you can flesh out information from areas that your character knows about, and I encourage you do to so. Also, feel free to add background to the areas that I have not fully fleshed out. What I’ve written is mostly a flavor guide to be expanded should we adventure in particular areas, if your character is from a specific area I give you the right to add fluff that fits with your character. All I ask is that you respect what has already been written.

I’m pretty flexible, so if you character has a story that doesn’t seem to fit anywhere with what I’ve written so far, I can always write in a way for him to work. Just let me know ahead of Sat so it doesn’t come at me cold.

As the campaign moves along, feel free to update pages or ask me to create pages for notable areas and NPCs. I have a GMs secret page for each entry, so as long as you don’t remove information that I have written for you, those pages are areas for you to track what you have done and who you have met. Also, I will be creating wiki pages for the PCs, to integrate them into the campaign world better. Once again, feel free to edit these pages once I have them up. Your PCs are of high enough level to be considered to be notable, so will be included on the notable personalities page once I have that built.

Trouble on the long road.

This campaign is starting out at Lvl 7 using any paizo official books or PRD material. All core races are allowed, and NPC races are allowed upon GM review (most are allowed). Leadership is available, but only cohorts may adventure with you.

We are using 20 point buy, and your character will start out with 1 hero point. If you bring in a write up for your character that integrates in some way with the campaign setting you will earn a second hero point. Finally if you have a write up for a previous character that you would like me to add to the campaign back story, an additional hero point is also available.

PFS and named region traits that are available depend on characters starting region. Characters that come from Drakkar would have access to Andoran traits for instance. If there is any questions about a trait, let me know during the hour before we start, or on here if you would prefer.

Starting wealth is as per WBL guidelines in core book, I only ask that you don’t have any single item that is more than 50% of WBL, as this tends to mess up the balance.

A fair amount of this adventure is going to be of social nature and/or outdoors. Two areas that I haven’t GMed with you as much. Characters that can thrive in either or both of these situations will have mechanical and RP advantages. Charisma and survival are not dumpstats/skills this time around.
