Come to think of it, most of the games I've played in have heavily trended toward the "fade into history" angle, or most of the stuff that happened was clandestine and not public to begin with.

Come to think of it again, the few examples that do stick out as potential great and public deeds, the GM finagled some reason that our antics didn't get us publicity to preserve certain game aspects like people never taking us seriously...

One of the biggest downers a DM can give you at the end of a campaign is "congratulations heroes, you did it! Shame nobody else knows."

It's like yeah, I don't want this to just be a power fantasy lesson in mutual masturbation, but I'd like to be a level 13 character getting wined and dined by a Duke, or maybe come across a puppetteer doing a show of one of our adventures, or heck maybe a scrappy little kid fawning over the cool hero/heroine.

>What's the most historically significant thing your character has ever personally done?

I think the most historic thing we've done in the campaign thus far had been our efforts in Xen'drik as we commanded a titanic golem to vanquish Lurking Two-Maws. The golem now stands at the edge of Stormreach as its own Colossus of Roads, of which we have out new base of operations established. We debatebly also have right to claim our role in stopping the Ogre-kin uprising in Zilargo since we'd defeated their champion; however, we were but one of many who've contributed to the war effort, not to mention we never really stuck around to claim credit. We had other priorities that needed attention, namely the criminal we were still escorting to his trial.. of whom escaped.

Fortunately, we aren't known for that in the slightest.

>Changing Fate edition
I killed Iomedae and became a god in a campaign that lasted over a year.

It started with a gestalt mythic Giantslayer campaign. I chose to play an Oracle//Sorcerer|Hierophant/Archmage dualpath, because I'm a cunt. That campaign ended when my necromancer slaughtered everything in the hold of belkzen, raised all of them as juju zombies, and used the giant's sick loot to shit all over lastwall.
After amassing power and dumping on morons trying to stop me I freed the whispering tyrant and swore allegiance to him. I then betrayed him like five years later and stole all his powers. At this point I hunkered down and started pursuing mythic 10, which took a long time. I was level 20/mythic 8 for a while already and had clerics and antipaladins and shit, but mythic 10 was outside my reach for decades. I needed to "eat" the most powerful lich ever just for 9.
While I pursued mythic 10, I had my boys do everything they could to destroy Iomedae's faith - from slaughter to propaganda.
As the religion lay in shambles after 40~ years I achieved mythic 10 and spent another 40 years preparing a planar invasion, while keeping her faith down. It's at this point my previous party members finally confronted me (I was the BBEG of their new campaign) but I beat them because I was basically a god already and they were just "immortal" heroes. Raised them, too.
When it was finally time for Operation Trumpet, I allied with a bunch of devils and then allied with demons behind their back, and sent both of them to launch suicidal distraction-attacks against anyone that would come to Iomedae's defense. I then "killed" her as best a god can be killed, and now she's trapped forever in as many wards as Rovagug, if not more. Golarion is slowly becoming an undead infested shithole and the gods all want me gone, and they'll probably get me, but that was the last time we'll ever play on Golarion as a setting so it doesn't matter.

I never want to play a caster again, by the way.

it's what it was designed for, yeah.

To give some insight into why golarion was designed as it was, Erik Mona, one of Paizo's devs, explained back in september how the world came to fruition. Basically, they wrote a list of all the things people might make cool campaigns around, a couple examples being pirates, vikings, the infernal empire, westerns, and things like that, and then they gave different devs different regions to work on - Erik Mona, for instance, is really big on Nex and Geb, since those are his babies.

I have done something similar in this way:

A population's level density can be expressed thusly:
population/2^level

1% of these individuals is a PC class, 9% are a mix of PC and NPC, and 90% are pure NPC.

I put the players in a city with a population of 3.2 million.

Meaning we had the following:
3 level 20s
6 level 19s
12 level 18s
24 level 17s

And so on. For each I rolled what they were, and get the following:
>2 level 20 Warriors
>1 level 20 Adept
>1 Level 19 Mixed Expert/Bard
>1 Level 19 Mixed Aristocrat/Sorcerer
>1 Level 19 Expert
>2 Level 19 Adepts
>1 Level 19 Warrior
>1 Level 18 Mixed Rogue/Expert
>1 Level 18 Mixed Warrior/Fighter
>4 Level 18 Warriors
>4 Level 18 Experts
>1 Level 18 Adept
>1 Level 18 Commoner
>1 Level 17 Pure Inquisitor
>9 Level 17 Experts
>7 Level 17 Adepts
>4 Level 17 Warriors
>3 Level 17 Aristocrafts

So in the city level 9 casting was literally unavailable as there was no one with the skills to do it.

I use this formula for most populations and run it through a python script that does the relative chances. It means the VAST majority of the time small populations are mostly level 1, with an occasional high level outlier because of luck of the draw. It rolls for their classes as well.

The only one that comes to mind is Sylgja in Reign of Winter, the Huldra that begs you to rescue her husband from the slaver mold - only issue is 90% of people will probably kill her husband in the process since the Slaver Mold's a BITCH to take down without hurting his fleshy NPC figure.

>There's a general conceit that the players will have a Starship, so the party as a whole gets one straight up. Because of this, each new book is going to have starship chassis or components included in them.
>Warp travel is done by going between the planes and pulling energy in from them. this is actually pretty dangerous, as pulling in said energy might pull in something more solid, basically making warp travel in Starfinder like warp travel in 40k, just with an equal chance of really pissed off angels as there are of daemons.
>The power conceit is meant to shift away from magic being all-powerful to technology being the big thing, with magic being a supplementary to that. Because of this, a well equipped soldier should be able to consistently solo a higher level barbarian, for instance. Thankfully, this likely means a complete overhaul of the guns and armor rules.
>Bestiaries for Starfinder are going to have less creatures in them overall, but in exchange will have more space devoted to each creature and, if it's Sapient, how to play it.
>It is NOT the same system. It'll have the same basis - that of the D20 ruleset, for instance - but things will have been changed. Skills will be different, different feats, different classes, and all that. there'll be noies on how to convert things between the two games, but they won't be DIRECTLY compatible with each other.

How does "levelling up" actually work in-universe?
The way I understand it, it's growing more powerful through personal experiences, in battle or otherwise, combined with training/studying/meditation/etc.
However, taking a step back reveals that it makes no sense at all for most NPCs. How does a commoner become capable of surviving a bullet to the head when all he's done is routinely scare off goblin cow-thieves with his pappy's sword? Why does fighting a bunch of kobolds make you better at Profession (Farmer)? Alternatively, it is possible to level up without ever fighting... and yet, you still become more capable of hitting with a sword, and tougher in general, when all you've done is make Craft (Painting) checks for 8 months.
It's fine as an abstraction for PCs, but it bothers me for NPCs. Am I just being a big baby? Should I let it go? I feel like this is such a core thing to most TTRPGs that it's pointless to think about.

If an NPC is not doing anything worthy of getting xp, he should not be leveling up. Same goes for players really. If you spent 8 months just painting, where did you get the XP to level up?

Now the whole "Killed a goblin, became a better farmer" problem is indeed valid, but not that much of an issue for the most part. Worse case scenario I see is someone leveling up mid adventure and then suddenly the next person the wizard decided to drop all his skill points in to say, climb. Then yeah.

Unless I've missed something, Paizo threw out that rule(along with a lot of other sanity checks, like rolling nothing over 10 being a completely valid stat array). So you could get all the way from level 1 to 20 by killing nothing but rats, although it would take hell of a lot of rats.

A commoner isn't surviving gunshots to the head; the bullets are either passing by them, or nicking them or they could even be hitting flesh - but they're not fatal wounds.

So healing can either be removing magical fatigue or curing the wounds that are actually there.

That's why HP is an abstraction - because people don't get to say "I GO CHOP OFF THEIR HEAD"; that's only something you can do *after* killing the target and making appropriate rolls for it. Hell even a coup de gras isn't a guaranteed "I chop off their head" because a target can conceivably survive it (in which case it can be something like a botched execution; you cut most of the way through their neck with your battle axe, but it wasnt sharp enough / you weren't strong enough to behead the half giant in one blow).

What are some cool things to put in a cave-bound bandit lair?
The bandit boss is a level 12 badass, so I have some leeway. Not TOO much since this is my character's home, and she's just a level 5 lackey, but still.
The bandits are mostly CG with some CN. Think Robin Hood's Merry Men.
I'm thinking they might have a friendly mimic chest, mostly because I love those. Not sure how to handle the fact pathfinder mimics have 10 INT and speak common, but it could be a full member of the gang and not just a fancy pet.

Anyway, ideas? It's a fairly large cave, housing up to 30 bandits at any given time. It's hidden and guarded well and I've figured out most of the logistics, just looking to put neat stuff in there.

Probably closer to a 'happy drunk'? She's the type that'd analyze almost everything she can bring herself to pay attention to when intoxicated, but at the same time she'd rather be quite taken by the sensation; this being the first time she's ever had any alcohol, she has no idea how to gauge herself. To give some sort of idea what she may be like, the party is currently in a Karrnathi family crypt to locate a noble's scout, and Elsbeth notes (out loud) in her still drunken stupor that she's disappointed that there are no skeletons having a smoke break by any of the headstones.

Tieflings are the spawn of literal devils, and devil are one of the nicest things you can take after. Qlippoth and Daemon tieflings are far worse off. The only tieflings that make sense to be humanly beautiful are ones that take after creatures meant to enthrall mortals.

Want a more serious answer? Tieflings and Aasimar are intimately tied to the nature of a setting's cosmology, you'd have to give us a bit more info to give a good answer.

My suggestion? Make them like half-elves in LOTR; the child of a demon or angel that is given the choice to either become human and thus destined to die (yet have total free will and a place in the Second Song) or they become fully demonic or angelic, taking on immortality and immense cosmic power at the cost of their free will and becoming shackled to the bones of their plane.

Heck, spice it up with Changeling lore and say the cosmic parent is subconsciously tied to them and calls for a meeting by adulthood. My brain is a little whack at the moment but I hope you can see the sort of delicious lore that can go on with this kind of setup.

Because of the demonic influence in their blood. Lots of them tend to be less than nice creatures; Sometimes they smell bad, sometimes they have unappealing features.

Sometimes things are just scary and bad stuff happens around them.

They also tend to be looked upon as though they're liars (demonic influence ones) or cheats (devil influenced ones). They're also seldom the products of entirely wholesome relationships (ie, someone way back down their line was a demonic cultist, or got raped by a demon or something).

The good ones are super extra good to overcome this prejudice, the bad ones tend to be extra bad. The neutral ones may just be liars.

Recently finished a 3.5 / forgotten realms book where a tiefling "child" was stolen from the red wizards of thay you have to be a literal psychopath to try this or powerful beyond belief. He eventually escaped after a decade or two of slavery, and had a relatively sour outlook on life - being exceptionally quick to attack for things he wanted. He survived as a thief until he eventually tried to lift the purse off of the daughter of two legendary adventurers (and a fairly respectable warrior in her own right). She smacked his hands then noticing he was quite small and somewhat malnourished she took the "child" back to where she lived and started to feed him.

The "child" (known as Kid from that point, as he didnt have a true name) helped their adventures as a dickass thief, a speaks-in-riddles and does acrobatics guy and an understander of most things magical and/or demonic... Only the aged dwarf of the party got to actually understand that the tiefling was something like 500+ years old and merely pretended to be a child. partially because it was easier for people to underestimate him and his experience and partially because he liked the girls of the party doting on him (a human, and a trio of half-sisters; a genasi, a half orc and a half-elf(?) - all of whom very much loved their daddy.)

Starting my first campaign as a player in a bit and I was looking to make a bard that could contribute in a melee frontliner capacity but keep as much of his bard-y goodness as possible. Is multiclassing the way to go? Just dipping into a more martial class? Or is the Arcane Duelist Archetype not terrible and the solution to all my problems?

Compare that to Megumin, who is actually a rather sweet girl in private and just needs to go do her explosion routine once a day, or Darkness, who is both hot and valiant, just, uh, with one little fetish (okay BIG fetish), and you're left with a goddess who can be considered clinical due to the level at which she lives in her own little bubble.

>The double doors are incredibly ornate, lined with gold filigree and intricately carved depictions of the previous king and the kingdom's holy dragon

Megumin's a sweet girl, and they keep getting close... But Dorkness is hella hot and were it not for constant interruptions she'd be tied up on his bed permanently.

Honestly, I think the best possible end for either girl would be if Megumin becomes main wife so that Lalatina is immorally reduced from a noble to a mere sow of a mistress on his side.

You know. Because she'll cum from just the thought of how degrading that all is.

Wow, that's a million times better than what Onyx Path Publishing does.

Part of the reason that Exalted got delayed for like 2 years is that they literally pay less than minimum wage to their staff, so the writers/editors/etc all have other jobs.

What makes a good backstory?

A loose height/weight range for males and females, common complexions and hair colors, eyes if they're usually something different from humans. Maybe a list of places you can rub to make them bleat.

Height, weight, colorations (Hair, eyes, skin), non-human features (Tail/horns) at a minimum. If you start with the idea of 'they're human, but...' then you'll get a good part of what needs to be written.

>>50075235
Believably & Brevity.
Something that makes them want to go adventuring over any other profession.
Something that the GM can use. NPCs and ends that haven't been tied up are the best -- I love it when a player mentions that they have family back in X area, that his parents always told him he was of royal lineage, or that her character's brother is also an adventurer.

Hooks and Goals in a believable and short package; and you'll have any good GM accepting your application.

Alright, I've gotten some stuff done on the homebrew class!
Not much stuff, just up to level 6, and only a handful of domains. We have the domains for Eristil, and three domains for Nethys, and the Life domain.
