>What is your character's family like? How happy a family are they? Is there any race mixing going on there?

Here is the family for various characters I have played in the past in reference to my current character:

>Andes Harparr, Father
>Brione Harparr, Mother
>Gyles Harparr, Older Brother
>Thurey Harparr, Older Brother
>Elell Harparr, Older Sister
>Rarder Harparr, Younger Brother
>Sane Harparr, Younger Sister
>Abet Harparr, Grandmother
>Joycie Payne, Grandmother
>Rasmundus Payne, Great Great Uncle
>Nieles Payne Sr, Great Grandfather
>Nieles Payne Jr, Grandfather
>Nieles Payne II, Uncle
>Alel Payne, Cousin
>Annel Payne, Aunt
>Joane Payne, Cousin
>Mera Payne, Cousin
>Rewilh Harparr, Uncle
>Hony Harparr, Uncle
>Yellis Harparr, Aunt
>Mickel Harparr, Cousin
>Alice Belmont, Great Aunt
>Rickard Belmont, Great Uncle
>Hepmon Belmont, First Cousin Once Removed
>Ullis Belmont, First Cousin Once Removed
>Ivar Belmont, Second Cousin
>Eilen Belmont, Second Cousin
>Mickey Belmont, Second Cousin Once Removed
>Tyran Belmont, Second Cousin
>Fillman Belmont, Second Cousin
>Helga Milleen, First Cousin Once Removed
>Omar Milleen, First Cousin Once Removed
>Copor Mileen, Second Cousin Once Removed
>Capre Mileen, Second Cousin Once Removed

I played Nieles Payne in a previous campaign. He's a wizard. Of this list there are 4 individuals with PC class levels.

Nieles Payne, and eldery level 9 wizard who still makes money through selling spell casting services in a major city + a shop that sells wands, potion, and scroll.

Uncles Rewilh Harparr and Hony Harparr are a Bounty Hunter Slayer and Sleuth Investigator. Both of them work as members of a mercenary company named The Ash Eaters. Both are level 7.

Gyles Harparr, the character's eldest brother is a Cloistered Cleric who joined the church when the character was very young. He now serves as a frontier priest, essentially sent by the church to deal with issues to the faithful on the edges of civilization. He is level 4.

>What is your character's family like? How happy a family are they? Is there any race mixing going on there?

If my character ever has any living family members, either the DM has them get kidnapped, or they turn out to be working with the BBEG. This has happened many, many times in the past. So these days I just make it clear that my character's family is always dead at the start of the game.

But even that isn't enough sometimes, like with my current character. Even though my Paladin saw his dad (who was also a Paladin) get killed by an evil orc warlord, and ended up personally burned his dad's body in a pyre and scattering the ashes, somehow the DM still had my dad come back as a spooky ghost villain.

If my character ever shows romantic interest in an NPC, she either gets kidnapped, dies, or turns out to be a hag in disguise.

So yeah, I just kind of give up on family in RPGs.

Seth of Thassilon
LE male Human Wizard (Thassilonian Specialist)|Harbinger (Ravenlord)
Campaign Trait: Touched by Divinity (Lissala)

>Has himself a picaresque adventure that teaches him the value of compassion
>Captured by Iomedaeans who think "oh shit a sin mage" and are still mulling over what to do with him when he volunteers to join the Crusades

There's a lot, and I mean A LOT of throat-clearing going on here. This is one of those backstories that could seriously benefit from being compressed, or at least from a pastebin link with a tl;dr version of about a couple paragraphs replacing it on the Roll20 page.

But that said, it's actually pretty good. It sets up Seth to start a character arc, provides a decent way for him to acclimate to the new Golarion, and presents a few conflicts that aren't clearly leading to just "Imma kill this guy". Having your character start with doubts like Seth has is a good idea (I kinda wish the Asmodean applicants had a bit more of that).

I like that the personality section makes no bones about him being a product of his time. He's still got a long way to go, but he's evil in a more interesting way than just being an asshole--he never knew a better way. All in all, he's a good character with plenty of room to grow...but I think he could do with a few more years. 15 is a little hard to buy for a Wizard, even a 1st-level one.

I have a player who is quite fond of tripping as a combat strategy. By and large its not been overly problematic in large melees where there's plenty of opponents to keep everyone busy, but I've got a big solo boss encounter coming up and I'd like to avoid him just running up and tripping the litch while he's in the middle of his big speech.

What options are available to me as a GM to help my monsters resist tripping without giving everyone flight or turning everyone into a centipede? I'd like to avoid invalidating my player's play-style choices entirely, but I'd also like to keep things fun, challenging and dramatic for my players. For reference, the party is level 9 and I don't like to use third party content.

>> No.51824677

Probably the easiest is to go with the old "zombie plague" standby. Turn people into undead who turn the people they kill into undead. Shadows are a great choice for pulling this off (Wraiths work alright, though not as well). Generally you want any kind of Incorporeal undead who can create spawn. It often takes too long for the people killed by corporeal undead (Vampires, ghouls, etc) to rise, whereas Shadows and Wraiths do so in just a few seconds.

Grab one with Control Undead and order it to start killing people and making more spawn. Tell it that it has to order its spawn to obey you (and order it's spawn to order their spawn to obey you, etc).

This can allow you to fairly quickly wipe out a small town or a village or even a whole city this way. At higher levels you could easily create your own Shadows, teleport them to various cities around the world, and then unleash them causing all sorts of chaos and problems.

I feel like there's not much to say here, really. It's all so dry that I feel like I'm reading the Cliff's Notes of a longer application. There's no real character under here, just kind of an archetype wrapped around a stat-block.

I can see the glimmer of a personality in here, the mention of Brihzwald stuttering and looking nervous while Buford is more calm but more terse, but it all seems like it's just there for its own sake. There's little mention of what he does for himself rather than as part of his role in life.

Thanks guys. The litch was perhaps a bad example, as you are correct in that any litch that doesn't fly deserves all the tripping they get.

When it comes to a creature, tripping is entirely binary. Either he trips the lich, or he doesn't, which means either his main shtick was useless during that fight or it was a major advantage. The solution is to not let it be binary. Put other things in the fight that he can trip, and find a way to encourage him to focus on those enemies, at least for some portion of the fight. They don't need to keep him busy the whole time, but just long enough that the lich has time to be unchecked and threatening.

Even if the extra enemies are much too weak to actually threaten the PCs and aren't strong enough to be worth EXP, their presence as speedbumps in the encounter will alter the way the fight plays out.

In our last game our group ended up in Limbo where we killed a powerful dragon. The GM decided that, in the spirit of the plane of chaos instead of just giving us a reward, he'd let us roll on some 3rd edition random magic item table. The caveats however was no rerolls, the item would not count towards our personal WBL, and we couldn't give or trade the item to someone else (if we tried it would instantly shatter into a million pieces).

Player 1, a Warlord rolled a Rod of Lordly Might. Player 2, a Mage rolled a Ring of Fire. Player 3, the Paladin rolled a Staff of Power(!) and he is retraining to max out his Use Magic Device skill. Finally, I (a Stalker) rolled a Horn of the fucking Tritons.

Everyone then proceeded to laugh at me and call me Aquaman for the rest of the evening.

The game has not taken place around or near any oceans or large bodies of water, and the GM said that he didn't forsee anything like that happening any time in the near future.

But I want to make everyone eat their words and use my item in some really cool or creative way. Does anyone have any suggestions on ways I could make this horn useful eve in an area without any water around? Or did I just end up with a bum magic item and am I doomed to have everyone call me Aquaman for the next six months?

I want to talk about the difference between Risk and Stakes, and why knowing the difference between the two is important for a game. To start out with it is important to take both terms and define what I mean by them in the context of a game. Risk represent the threat of personal bodily harm, harm to one's possessions, or harm to one's direct contact (family, friends, etc.). Stakes is threats to larger and more abstract concepts, the political and social health of a nation, the function of organizations, etc. Games can be both high and low in both of these. This gives us four different types of games. High Risk/High Stakes, High Risk/Low Stakes, Low Risk/High Stakes, Low Risk/Low Stakes. Let us talk about an example of each.

For the difference between High Risk/High Stakes and High Risk/Low Stakes I have a common example that I use. For those who are familiar with Jojo's Bizarre Adventure this will be easy to follow. In Part 3 of Jojo the protagonists are traveling across the world fighting the subordinates of Dio, an immortal vampire. This represents a High Risk/High Stakes campaign, if they fail not only will they likely die, but Dio will go on towards a plan of world domination. Most games seem to follow this formula of High Risk/High Stakes. In Part 4 of Jojo instead the main focus is on the hunt for a serial killer plaguing a rural town. This represents High Risk/Low Stakes. Failing means the character's or the character's families could die, but if they fail the serial killer has no larger ambitions than to commit murder once every 6 months. This is tragic but not world altering. Many mystery theme'd games follow this formula.


>> No.51825761

Low Risk/High Stakes is harder to define, but where I normally see it is in things like Political Intrigue. The thread of personal harm is very low, but the fate of nations can rest on the players. For Low Risk/Low Stakes not many games follow this formula because there is not much driving force behind them.

What I want to talk about is High Risk/Low Stakes and Low Risk/High Stakes. What campaigns have you had that follow these formulas? Do you think there is anything inherently wrong or less exciting about these? Out of these four types what do you believe is the best formula? Personally I adore High Risk/Low Stakes as it feels far more personal of a game style.

Yeah but Kami Medium is /shit/ though. You lose access to the Archmage (!!!) and the Champion becomes extremely hard to channel unless you've got a Kineticist friend or a Druid buddy who can Control Weather (if your GM is one of those faggots who enforce Favored Locationts).

If you DO end up doing Kami Medium, ask your GM for the Archmage back, and ask if you can drop the Séance Boon in favor of not having to be at a favored location, because as it stands Kami Medium is one of the weakest archetypes for the Medium.

My old half-drow monk was the only half-drow in a family of like 9 siblings. He had 3 sisters and 6 brothers, most younger than him(although not by much!). His mom took good care of him when he was young, and his step-dad was an inkeeper.

When I retired the monk, he was 52 years old. He had a wife and a daughter, so when the ultimate army of evil darkness came to besiege his home city, he had to retire to keep his family safe. The party was actually kinda baffled when they eventually met his family, because they never realized how old their monk was.

Fei Xiahou's applicant here. I just wanted to say thank you for your critique of my character. I've learned quite a bit from this, and after reading your critique and the comments, I'll probably change her passage to the Worldwound from "crude raft" to "stowing away on a merchant ship". It definitely makes more sense considering how dangerous the waters between Tianxia and the main continent would be.

You did mention that it feels a lot like she belongs in a different campaign, but I'm not sure how I could rectify that without changing who Fei is fundamentally as a character. When I imagined her, I imagined a girl that was forced into becoming a hero, and throughout the journey gradually grows into an actual hero; it's kinda difficult to take that concept as a whole and make a definitive tie to WotR.

Not that guy but I honestly don't feel like she needs to be tied in any deeper than she is. You have a fish out of water concept and room for character development, with just enough of a tie-in to justify being there and sticking to it. Weakening that core might just spread her out too thin. Her teacher aspect will give her an excuse to interact with other characters.

I definitely agree with the dude that her story doesn't have enough of her in it though and that hurts her. Maybe expand on her feelings towards her mother or her relationship with her fiancee?

We've actually talked about this before in my group. The alternate timeline evil version of my NG Magus goes evil because he never finds something important to protect, which anchored him to goodness. Instead of coming to see his strength as a means to protect what's precious to him, he learns that his strength IS what's precious- the only thing that's precious. Eventually, he becomes a graveknight in pursuit of more power and an immortal unlife to abuse it with. That anchor which tied him down to goodness, by the way, was a town that needed his help.

A unique artifact, though? Um... I guess it would be a second version of the plot device sword that he got in the campaign, one that came from the Bizzaro Universe his evil counterpart hailed from. Noiralog, I suppose.

Apparently nothing much interesting happened to her during her life up to this point. While I could see this being a good way to start at level 1, if you've just spent your whole life training, but it's not exactly meaty. Why does she want to be a Sword Knight? Who are her parents, her siblings? How does she interact with them?

Moving on to personality, she's apparently amicable enough, but she seems sort of toothless as a character. Sure, she's got a sense of humor and she likes to fuck on occasion, but where are her flaws? What does she like and dislike, as a person? Is there even an actual woman underneath that helmet?

>People didn't like him because of his parentage and because he was functionally a bastard, but he was just like "okay.jpeg"
>Decided to go volunteer at Kenabres so that his foster brother wouldn't have to leave his family

This guy is just...impossibly okay with his life. There is so much meaningful conflict available, but the backstory just kind of smooths it away. He had a perfect loving foster family and never cared about the dire circumstances of his birth once he found out about them. The glimmer of being a person rather than a set of traits is apparent in his decision to volunteer to save someone else, but that's kind of too little too late.

As for his personality, well, it's pretty bog standard. He's a nice guy, and likes nature. That's about it.

But apparently nobody told this guy much about the Worldwound, since the reason given for him going seems to have him assuming that it's into a warzone, not a literal hellscape. Abyss-scape. Whatever. If he's supposed to be this naive, that needs to be apparent in the rest of the application.
