Kobolds are canonically very clever, and are experts at building, mining, and mechanics. The only reason they never really progress into large societies is because their short lifespan, Dragons keeping them down, dwarves and gnomes breaking their mines, and whenever they try to make large cities they get torn apart by some gnome god going "Its just a prank bruh"

Tell him that Guns don't destroy fantasy and will not nullify all other weapons. Cite that at low levels they need either the class or a feat to even use it and it takes a full round of AoO provoking actions to reload. All for 1d10 damage that, while hitting touch AC, is less damage than what all other classes can deal in the two turns you took to fire then reload.
It also helps if you point out how Level 1 spells that hit touch AC routinely do 5d6 damage with a potential status condition.

So, trying to decide how to advance my slayer.

Base line would be straight to 20 on Slayer (Vanguard). Which, leaves me with 3 feats and 9 slayer talents unclaimed. (Though, perhaps I should throw manyshot on there.)

I've considered dipping 2 levels of Magus(Eld.Archer), to get minor arcane ability, (only 12 int...) but it gets me an extra attack at Full-BAB-2 (-4 after rapid shot, but 20dex and +3 from abilities and feats.)
For the price tag of a single Slayer Feat (and the capstone...)

Trying to think of anything worthwhile for those talents or otherwise worth dipping into. Campaign is mostly Paizo, but the DM can occasionally be talked into things outside FPP.

Have: PBS, Precise Shot, Rapid Shot, WF(Longbow), and Deadly Aim. Have Point Blank Mastery, Combat Reflexes, and the Snapshot tree locked in. Considering Manyshot, but after that drawing a blank.

Kinda want to drop three of them on the Animal Companion line. (The worthless skill feat, the druid-3 one, and Boon Companion.)

Elven wanderer becomes a forgemaster, goes insane and believes his mission is to reforge the elven race.

Hooo boy, this is a lot to unpack.


FINALLY. A PC that actually has a good reason to be a god.

Despite issues I'll discuss below, the app is quite well written (particularly the appearance section).

Personality is plenty strong, and certainly compelling.


B U L L E T P O I N T S; if there was ever an app that needed them, this is it.

The backstory is loaded down with tons of extraneous details that make it difficult to read and don't actually contribute anything to the story. There's no need to go into detail about the location of his homeland, his nickname, etc. when they don't actually give us *any* information about the character. Despite being born in Andoran and in a forest renown for it's Fey infestation, neither of those things have any noticeable impact on who he is. This is badly in need of an editor.

When I ask for more information about a character's background, I don't want loads of extraneous details, I want to know about the events that have changed/shaped them, and how they've reacted to said event.

Despite it being the reason for his entire fucking arc, the Pit of Gormuz is an after thought. Why?

>> No.52198641


Personality isn't reflected in his backstory at all.

Completely ignores a key point: How do other elves feel about their self-proclaimed savior?

There are no Elf-Gates in Vudra. Making up a McGuffin to save your character, then saying "it's destiny" doesn't compensate for writing that makes no sense.

What purpose is he going to give elves? He has no real goals or beliefs; Aroden wanted to elevate humanity out of darkness and restore the glory of Azlant, this character has nothing to do after becoming a god.

This is somewhat unfair for a review, as it hasn't been completed yet. Neverthless, there's quite a few problematic things about this app.
THE GOOD: Perseus comes across as very human as a character - naive and bold but learning, and not giving up at the first sign of failure. We haven't seen much of his dragon companion yet, so can't really comment. The backstory itself is written reasonably ok and there's probably quite a few fetish things one can pull off with a sexy dragon girl and also human toy.

Let's not forget dice this time!

THE BAD: Dragons are bad news. Dragons are ALSO per the GM's setting notes turning into stupid drakes because the god of dragons is no longer supporting them, so this dragon should also start turning dumb. Monsters are bad news in the campaign. Trying to have a monstergirl companion off the bat is going to have about 90% of Perseus' companions probably want to kill the dragon and her pet human, unless there's something really surprising happening in the unwritten part of the backstory.
Though I'm not exactly /pol/ related, there's not much a GM can really with regards to rapey stuff with a betrothed companion in a lewd game unless NTR's involved somewhere.
As well as that, this app fails the first part of what the GM wanted, and for that to have a tome involved in the backstory somewhere. Unless the final parts of the backstory significantly revise things, it's a pretty poor showing.

>Appeal: 3/5 While dragon girls are sexy, there's little point in a game of slow corruption if you're starting off with a monstergirl in your back pocket - or rather, if you're in a monstergirl's back pocket already, is there? The character himself feels more like a soulless H-game protagonist that has lewd things happen to them rather than an actual character.
>Backstory: 3/5 It's written OK, but falls apart under scrutiny.
>Compatibility: 1/5 Dragons are not going to play well with the rest of the group.
>Setting accuracy: 2/5 No mention of tomes, dragons are supposed to be dumbing down. At least it's got that the world's messed up right.
>Sexual potential: 3/5 Again, dragons are hot, but how much can you do with the male protagonist with a dragongirl in the way?

Oh, one last thing: Things I'd personally change about the app: While it's only level 3 start, I'm a firm believer that the character should be the central part of the application itself. At the moment, there's a lot of things happening to Perseus, and the focus from him is taken up by a big stonking dragon, who at the moment seems to pact with him for no reason whatsoever. Make it more clear why the dragon's indebted, give the dragon a reason for needing to pact (possibly to stay sane?) and find a way to make it so they aren't both kill on sight by pretty much everyone else. Finally, adding some extra contacts that the GM may use later on. That might help!

It's your lucky day, Taris is up next!
>people out in the sticks worshipping evil fae goddess to stop monsters eating them decide to try using a tome to protect them instead.
>everyone dies apart from Taris

Hoo, boy. The problem with a GM specifying an evil thing to occur in your app is that it tends to produce a lot of very similar backstories. I can count at least three with the fill in the gaps story of
>_____'s friend/relative decided to use unidentified tome!
>_____ was the only survivor. He/she decides to hunt down tome merchants.

While it's not unexpected since the GM wanted tomes to show up, it may be worth differentiating the stories from each other in some respects. So!

THE GOOD: There's a solid theme going here - a personality showing Taris has guilt as a driving force, and a backstory that shows how this happens.

I'm removing people from the pool as I go, so this one's Taris.
If I've got time, maybe!

THE BAD: The app and person is somewhat generic! What differentiates Taris from the next person with a gun and a sad dead parents backstory? The Titania could be dropped for any other god, there's no gimmick to Taris, and nothing that makes them stand out either as a character or as a person that could be corrupted. Additionally, how does Taris know how to fight? Level 3 should be more than just a farmhand. Lastly, everyone being dead leaves little for a GM to hook with. The only person left that could be anything is the insane spider girl that used to be his friend?

>Appeal: 3/5 Sorely generic.
>Backstory: 4/5 While I generally don't like stories told in-person for backstories, it does show the player's able to do ok prose. Points off for not saying why he's better than the ordinary person at fighting or shooting.
>Compatibility: 4/5 A ranged striker is a handy, and complements both beatsticks and buffers. Nothing too fancy, though.
>Setting accuracy: 5/5 It looks like it could be one of a great many tragic tales in this crapsack world.
>Sexual potential: 2/5 Generic male on revenge quest. While it's not actively turning me off, it's not giving me anything other than "throw monstergirl at" or "shove tentacles up rear".

DEAD FAMILY MEMBERS: At least 2, and also everyone he knows!

This one's a bit tricky to give advice to, because while it's solidly written, there's not enough to catch the eye. Perhaps playing up the Titania worship? Throw in the backstory a ranger companion to be, or give some info about how he's gone from "run away from monsters" to "ready to kick monster ass".

I'm fairly certain the origin of the Nightwalkers themselves are a mystery, but I understand them to be part way between monsters and humans since they take power from the miasma.

Probably better not to think about it too much and treat it as generic anime evil power curse.

>monster attack!

This app's pretty barebones due to its work in progress, but even the summary is poorly fleshed out. Not going to spend much time on this at all.

THE GOOD: The personality section is the best part of this app. He's actually got a problem, and that's loving his job too much. Normally that's a terrible flaw, and it still isn't fantastic, but at least it's something that humanises the character. Feeling bad about his father dying also helps a bit.
THE BAD: Doesn't include a tome incident. Backstory is terribly terribly generic. No hook. This guy could be shoved in a dozen different campaigns, and isn't even customised to the campaign.

There's not much I can do about the tome. As you said, the GM said the tome manifesting must be included in the backstory. I work within the bounds I'm given.

I'm gonna disagree with Titania being replaced by any other god. They wouldn't worship Undine, as they are not near the sea. Zyke, perhaps, but I don't believe drakes to be too large an issue in the lowlands, since they seem to be largely concentrated to the west. Titania makes the most logical sense in protecting your cattle from generic monsters and general mishappenry.

I'll take the advice about having a ranger buddy teach Taris, or perhaps mention how the original owner of the rifle had taught him to shoot. As to what makes him a better fighter: He's a Nightwalker. He's kinda automatically better then the average human, due to self healing. Meaning he can make more mistakes, and learn from those mistakes and improve.

Keli Dobreani!
>_____'s friend/relative decided to use unidentified tome!
>_____ was the only survivor. He/she decides to hunt down tome merchants.

The backstory for Keli is a bit more involved - there's at least one other survivor who's telling the tale, and it also gives insight into her personality. Both good points. -The sudden last minute addition for loan does feel a bit tacked on. I'd have put that separately as a footnote, as it really does feel out of place after that great last line about coins.

THE GOOD: Maybe I'm being biased towards girls, because Keli does seem a bit more fleshed out, even though the background's very similar to the other two previous ones. But at least there's some mention of non-murder activities, some things they enjoy other than hunting down beasts and tome-purveyors. Additionally, the way the backstory's framed is a nice touch - as said, it shows some personality insight, there's backstory with relevant details of who exactly got Tomed.

Fine, I'm boosting appeal and setting accuracy slightly up, but I haven't played bloodborne so can't really comment.

The problem with Titania is that there's not *that* much difference in having your family be sailors worshipping Undine, or some folks in a drake valley worshipping Zyke. While yes, she makes the most sense, it's a detail that doesn't lead to anything. It doesn't change Taris Masa who his former family worshipped, because they're all dead and it looks like there's nothing connecting him to Titantia any more in the backstory. That's where it's fallen down - it's a detail that could be made into a hook but is left an empty string.

You can add something if you want or leave it, that was just more of a minor point than something groundbreaking.

THE BAD: The downside to the above is that the fleshing out of Keli comes somewhat out of the blue. Where exactly did Keli find she liked frilly things and girly stuff while being an alchemist's apprentice? It's not impossible that the sellsword who rescued her didn't know about that, but it just appears out of the blue. Minor issue.

Aside from that, there's not too much to grab from her. On the more generic side of things, though girls in armour are pretty nice.

>Appeal: 3/5 Girl in armour trying to stay cheerful and noble, and pure.

There's a few things you can do about the app, potentially spicing it up a bit with more things Keli likes to do outside monster hunting. Giving the sellsword a bit of history too or someone else surviving might provide some hooks for the GM.

>Consider reviewing the setting itself in regards to ability to make a backstory for it.
A good point! Let's see what sort of backstory you can make with the rules as written.

>Humans only! (nightwalker variant)
>Level 3
>1pp and avowed, no 9th level casters
>Tome Encounter!
>No-one from blah blah district
>Gotta tell me which organ you want pounded

This is actually a pretty restricted set of constraints - it's not impossible to work with, but there's going to be a lot of similar stories.

Humans only instantly makes memes limited, and nightwalker also puts in another complication. The final problem is the tome encounter and how poorly defined it is - only that it leads to bad things happening.

The most obvious backstory is what we've seen so far -
>generic human who is also a nightwalker gets in a tome incident at their home town and now MY PARENTS ARE DEAAAD

But once you realise that everyone and their mother are going to be doing that, you can mix it up a bit. Play into the nightwalker heritage. Instead of being Generic McFarmer, go be recruited at an early age by a secret society of nightwalkers. Join the army, or be out on your own growing up with nightwalker parents with only monsters as the other people you interact with.

Be from overseas. Live in the cities. You don't have to be from doomed village no24.

I understand where you come from. I wonder if the theme of applications would've been different if I had given a less generic spin with Keli.

The idea is that people usually go SUPER EXCENTRIC with backstories around here, so I figured I'd bring it a notch down with a rather generic yet likeable character, since there were no other applications around.

I actually think there's too much space rather than too little. Discovering you're a Nightwalker and discovering a tome can each end up being small, if still impactful parts of your character, but they're not like alignment restrictions or being beholden to some particular background. You could come from a lot of places as long as you have those ends covered.

The issue shouldn't be trying to fit them into your backstory but rather, not going too far with them. The DM hasn't given much information on what a Nightwalker or the tomes are, so you have to skirt around the topic. He's also asking for you to flesh out a small part of the setting, as long as you fit the tones. Those're all easy traps to go overboard on, but if you think about it, you don't usually get the chance to plop a village into a setting with its own customs when making a character.

>> No.52200660


>> No.52200663

As for the tome issue, it's still limited, but you can do more than just "A TOME KILLED MY FAMILY!!!!!"

Consider how a tome incident starts, ends, and its aftereffects. You can have your character come across any part of this and have "encountered" tomes.

Be a royal investigator sent by a noble, investigating a bunch of villages erupting into treats. Come across tome merchants who are seen trying to sell tomes and find people accusing their tomes of causing these disasters. Be ordered to be sent after tome merchants.

Be sold tome. Have tome confiscated because some people heard it's EEEEVIL. Have tome burst into treats in the building it was taken into. Realise tome merchant tried to kill you, THAT RAT BASTARD. Go after their blood.

You hear of tome that can save loved one, or can go after uncertain cure. You go after tome. Find tome in another town and survivors tell you tome got everyone killed and you were deceived. Tome monsters also destroyed alchemy shop so no cure. Loved one dies and it's ALL THOSE TOME MERCHANT'S FAULT.

I admit, the rules encourage a certain type of story. But there are lots of ways to tell that story, and you can make it plenty interesting.

Where to begin with this guy? He looks like he's trying to throw as many memes together as possible.

THE GOOD: It's got unique points to it, that won't make other characters want to kill it instantly. Much more easily memeable. There's characters that can be used again - this app's the second that has named NPCs, and Commander Fusio vanishing mysteriously can be used as a plot hook. Though now I think about it, so can Keli's mother and Taris's Gilly.
There's more surviving NPCs that can be used. There's an actual family around that can be used as hooks. There's deeper lore than just the character himself, and though he isn't overly powerful for a level 3 dude, it's still mostly centred about him which is good in a backstory. Finally, a personality that is backed up by what's happened in the backstory. He's kind of like Keli but wilder.

THE BAD: what the fuck is with that ancient story picture. Is this all just meme references?
The character's someone wearing Ornstein's armour called the Knight Captain in a tale of slaying dragons. Hellkite dragons, apparently. The story's about getting past a prophecy of killing a monster that can be slain by no man - is that some fucking LoTR ripoffs going on there? Why in the world is the picture on a monstergirl encyclopedia template? Is it just me or did no-one care about this guy before he put on the mask?

Look at this image. Just look at it.

Apart from that, there are some actual technical problems here. The survivors of the NPCs aren't fleshed out at all, and neither is the family. There's not much other than battle talked about in the personality section - what other than justice and family does the guy like? Monsters are disliked, as is desertion - that's something at least. But if family's important, why isn't that fleshed out?

Why is the nightwalker thing just thrown in there? Wouldn't he have known about it from much younger since it's pretty easy to discover? Did you check with the GM about putting in historical stories like that?

>Appeal: 4/5 Flashy armour and an Ornstein expy. Stands out, without being instantly murderable. Could use a bit more personality.
>Backstory: 4/5 The main issue here is the other characters useable as plot hooks by the GM not getting fleshed out more. Add in some names and if those three survivors are important, along with the family.
