For anybody that wants to see them, I've got links to the original Starfinder livestream (involving a lot of playtesting with a mechanic, technomancer, and solarion) that goes between a playtest and proceeds into a Q&A session later on.

Captain Slow is stepping out of PLD

I bumped it up to Weekly, plus the lewds and random crap between sessions, and that was too much commitment for him. Rather than rain on the parade for everyone else, he backed out.

So much of this. I know exactly what my character's backstory is. I could write it out cleanly in bullet points, but that makes for a shitty presentation. I've spent several hours trying to make progress on actually writing something properly, and all the headway I've been able to make has been two small paragraphs that don't even actually broach the subject of where my character came from. "Inarticulate word vomit" is exactly right.

You've been itching to remove him.


Yes, apparently Slow can't take the 24/7 PbP rape minisessions while he gets ignored with 6 hour long combats taking place on thursday where Vult fails at PF's rules and then rages because CERTAIN CHARACTERS won't just throw fights and get raped quietly or ditch so that he can rape characters.

>> No.52940917

Ignoring the bait, in my opinion the death of a PC should always have some kind of meaning or flair to it, that's why in the games that I run I always give each of my players one opportunity to have not died if it is at all feasible that they could not die from whatever is killing them.

In my opinion a Tabletop game is not just a game, it is a collaborative storytelling experience, and unless you're looking for a grisly Game of Thrones-esque tone where nobody is safe, having one of your players die to some mook while you're still in the Rusty Dagger Shanktown levels is a bit much to swallow, and should be avoided if at all possible.

Just write about anything, I find that the biggest roadblock to writing is the physical act of writing itself, but once you get going it's like a motor in your mind starts running and it allows you to begin going at a much more active pace. Also, do your edits after you're finished writing the backstory from start to finish, that way you can look back at it with a fresh pair of eyes to notice any mistakes.

I start with bullet point / greentext versions of the major beats of the story. After that, I choose the order to present it all. Then just start expanding on each point in sequence. I also try to avoid passive voice when the app character is the subject of the sentence, and usually try to put a comma in each sentence from having modifiers and things. Then kinda just iron it all out, until it's ready to post. Though this method usually needs one or two major rewrite/revisions after posting, so gotta have time for that.

I've had this happen to me after needing to leave a campaign. The DM just wrote my character out, but they didn't have them die- I think the words they used were "[my character] decided that maybe delving into dark dungeons and fighting spooky bugs and stuff wasn't her sort of business, and so she said her goodbyes and sought out better business" just in case I could return I couldn't, but I did appreciate the sentiment, and it leaves open an avenue for further exploits/solo sessions with that character when the GM finally has time for it.

That's exactly how things normally go for me but this time I can't seem to start things flowing. It's like, damn, I had an easier time starting my papers in college than this.

What I'm really struggling with is an introduction or start to my backstory that doesn't feel clunky or unnatural. Hm, how can I explain it...

Since drawing is the only marketable talent I have I figured I might as well take a crack at selling character art. That being said, I don't really have a clue as to how to go about it. I thought /pfg/ might have some insight so... here I am.

Have you ever commissioned character art before? How did it go?

How do you go about finding an artist to commission art from? Is there a specific website you typically go through?

What do you look for in an artist? What sort of style most appeals to you? Realistic? Stylized? Anime?

Do you usually look to commission full body artwork, or do portraits appeal to you as well?

What's the most you've paid for a commission? Was it worth it? What do you consider to be a fair price for commissioned artwork?

>>That's the one where you obliterate yourself from existence in exchange for a party rez, right?

Yes. The whole scene was completely dramatic. The party was facing down against an avatar of a demonic goddess. Though the goddess was not the actual enemy. It was a very strange adventure where there was much travel and questing (since the whole thing did end up lasting from levels 1 to 20)

The monk, funnily enough, was the only character left from the original level 1 party. Every other party member was replaced once or twice because of them dying or leaving the party.

So the GM decided to make the transition to epic levels a hard section. The monk's quest was to become truly perfect and find enlightenment, as his whole character idea was a stoic martial artist of a faith few follow. To truly become a master of his faith he needed to defeat the avatar of his faith (The party was planecrossing at the time on the knight's quest for the shield of the sun, and the wizard's quest to slay his brother who was a powerful epic level lich, etcetc) and the dragon goddess of his faith was captured by the lich who was seeking to ascend and become the new god of death and time. Through powerful deific artifacts the lich was able to control the goddess in her imprisonment to an extent, summoning forth her avatar for the party to fight.

After two sessions of several difficult encounters through a plane of time and death that the lich had created, it culminated in a fight right below his tower with the dragon goddess's avatar.

I can't speak for anyone else but I can tell you what I look for when on the hunt for artists:
1.) I've commissioned several pieces of art from a few different artists, a wide number of them for use in PF sessions. Most of them have gone fairly well, though I've tried to get a piece done by Dorian and I've had a bit of an issue getting him past the sketching phase, I haven't even paid the man yet and he seems to have pulled a bit of a disappearing act on me, a shame really.
2.) I typically am already well aware of the artist before I commission them, I never look to ask for one from someone I don't know.
3.) Art style depends on the subject matter, for PC portraits I prefer a realistic style, for non-PF or NPCs I'll usually go with stylized.
4.) Full body is normally reserved for showing off the whole character if I feel they deserve it, otherwise portraits all the way.
5.) The full body header for my session was $80 from one Mr. Siden, you can find him on Tumblr, but I've also received similar work from other artists for almost half as much, so it all really depends on what you think your art is worth.

And more to the point, /pfg/ has terrible standards for what constitutes good writing. Slow has decent characters, but they're usually either the same archetype, a Game of Thrones ripoff, or both. To his credit, down-to-earth sorts of characters can be a welcome change, but he's basically trading on celebrity by now. People think "It's Captain Slow so it must be well written", not "this is well written."

I'd say that *most* of the /pfg/ apps are actually good writing, or at least a good start on a character. There's a lot of good ideas, and a lot of deserving writers who don't get accepted either just on account of GM taste or a matter of scheduling. Hell, I've passed over good apps because they were only available at inconvenient times.

Slow isn't a bad writer, neither is he a great one. He's fine. He just is benefiting from a double standard (see here >>52941656 ) of people who want to typefuck him just to say they did.

>How do you go about finding an artist to commission art from?
Browsing the internet and sites, tracking down art styles that I like
>Is there a specific website you typically go through?
Used to be Deviant Art, but now it's Fur Affinity for the literally starving artists that give really good deals. Only issue is finding ones that do humans, but most won't balk at it.
>What do you look for in an artist?
Style and consistency with good work relations.
>What sort of style most appeals to you? Realistic? Stylized? Anime?
Depends on the scene and character in question that I've got in mind. I do like to get a spread of different styles for the same character as a sort of 'this lets you better get the gist and idea' sort of thing.
>Do you usually look to commission full body artwork, or do portraits appeal to you as well?
Bit of both, but I find I get full body more often than portrait or similar.
>What's the most you've paid for a commission? Was it worth it?
$300 and worth every penny, considering the piece should have been well over 1k for the time and quality of it. I caught the artist in person, waving cash in their face to tempt them and got them locked in.
>What do you consider to be a fair price for commissioned artwork?
Depends very heavily on speed and quality. Some artists I'm fine with dropping $20-30 on a two hour stream of getting something done then and there, but nothing more. Others it's 100 for something I might not see for four months, but know that it'll be worth the wait.

Good Luck with your attempts! I would heavily suggest keeping detailed communication and billing records, full transparency on everything, sign things, and get your name out there. A lot of artists do that with raffles.

The fights before this were going great, but suddenly it was a shitshow. First the knight was magically disarmed by the dragon goddess's power, and the shield of the sun fell into a time pool. (Thankfully that fuck always put equipment cords on her shit) but for a round she was defenseless. One failed save and she was petrified into a statue of pure jade.

The wizard took his turn to cast wish and wish that the knight had not failed the disarm save, but was attack of opportunitied by an invisible enemy.

The cleric sprung into action while the barbarian and monk was keeping the avatar of the dragon back. Trying to revive the wizard and unpetrify the knight, but was pushed into a timepool by the same enemy, and turned to dust after two failed saves. (The second one a critical failure.)

The monk and barbarian fought on. The barbarian being a frenzied berserker was still chopping away while at -200 or so health, fighting until his frenzy ran out. The monk backed off because of a promise he made with the barbarian at around level 5 or so.

Soon, the frenzy wore and the barbarian fell to pieces. The avatar came upon the monk tears in her eyes, sitting peacefully, the monk then stood up. It was then we looked at eachother on the game table and everyone looked at the monk's player. The goddess was weak and the monk had regained a lot of strength as the barbarian kept her busy. He had the chance to defeat her like was his quest, but instead, as the monk stood he drew in all his Ki, illuminated by the power, and then used the newest move he had learned. True Sacrifice. The monk was obliterated, and the party was restored. The goddess was brought to tears of jade as she saw this act of sacrifice. It was enough, not for her to break free of control of the lich, but to halt her attacks and allow the party to walk through into the tower.

Each time party members thought of the monk, nothing came. Just feelings of peace, love, sacrifice, and tranquility.

First rule: brevity is the soul of wit. Fantasy hack writing has a tendency towards Purple Prose. What you want is to leave bits to imagination of whoever is reading while condensing as much information as possible. Not all information is equal, some parts deserve more lines than others and some words convey more information than others.

Pacing is important, learn to control the flow of information. It is good idea to use themes, moods and motifs to pack more information and build a narrative for the character.

You can also add a lot of information.

"Through the door came two Sardukar herding a girl-child who appeared to be about four years old. She wore a black aba, the hood thrown back to reveal the attachments of a stillsuit hanging free at her throat. Her eyes were Fremen blue, staring out of a soft, round face. She appeared completely unafraid and there was a look to her stare that made the Baron feel uneasy for no reason he could explain."

Your immediate impression of Alia is one of power and disturbing intensity. But there's a lot of implied violence in the description too — the hood that's "thrown back" and the emphasis on her bare throat. It's immediately intense and gripping.

There is a mythic power that lets you beat mind blank.

A ranger with favored enemy, named bullet, and the mythic vital strike line threatens a crit automatically and multiplies everything, even things that are not normally multiplied on crits. So he does a 12x damage shot with +36 from greater named bullet which is multiplied by 12, and his favored enemy bonus which is multiples by 12, and his deadly aim, and his composite bow bonus.

It's retardedly deadly.

I mean, my current character just completely prevents all hostile movement in a 35ft radius. That's not OP at all, since he's not dealing damage with those AOOs! Right? The problem is clearly with the Magus who keeps abusing Spell Combat with spells that don't require attack rolls. Like Magic Missile. Fucking bullshit Magic Missile, being irresistible automatically hitting damage. He's clearly the source of all woe.

Not really related to your issue but this post reminded me.

This is an old thing that's already resolved itself, but I'm curious on /pfg/'s take on this issue.

What do you do when a character has dumped a mental score but the player themselves obviously rolled high. I once had a player who dumped CHA and didn't play face, but the player themself had great speech and reasoning and I always had trouble finding reasons on why NPCs shouldn't have agreed with him on a lot of topics even though there was no way in hell he was going to roll well socially.

In my case the group stopped playing for unrelated reasons before it ever became a serious problem, but I want to know how you'd handle it.

>> No.52944515

Like Captain Slow?

>> No.52944525

Ask them if they're okay making it another PC's idea, or occasionally let them have this flash of insight if it's not happening too often.

Justify it through some other mental score, like Wisdom allowing them the perception to notice details, or Intelligence making them smart enough to propose something that makes sense, even if they're babbling or stumbling over their words in-character (see also: Jeff Goldblum playing a smart character in movies).

But there's the rub--writers like Martin bends plausibility just to railroad characters into situations where they'll be punished, and then just use blanket statements about realism to justify it.
