Alright so my friends roped me into trying out pf with them and i wanted to try something simple
I'm going with a gnome paladin (core only so no weird stuff) but i'm having trouble coming up with a proper order for them to join
I was thinking something along the lines of a congregation dedicated to guarding/honoring the fey they descend from, from the sites of fey domain to their artifacts of heritage, but i know next to nothing about PF lore so i'm asking you if this is a dumb idea or not
Also what would the best god for such a paladin be?

Well I mean
Normal Paladins in PF are always Lawful Good, but your thing sounds like some sort of natural guardian, which would be Neutral Good or something? Unless I'm misinterpreting?
Paladins don't need gods per-se, those are clerics. Paladins are paragons of all that is good and lawful (in other words, of virtue in general) but they're not actually bound to serve the whims of a god for the most part.

Just a general question, I read here or on 1d4chan something about a campaign where the GM and his group tried to make their characters become immortal/gods, and then have a second campaign set 1000 years later where the new group tries to kill them somehow.
Can anyone maybe give me some pointers where I could find that story again (if it exists and I'm not simply just senile)?

>> No.53057886

I know about the alignment requirement, but aren't paladins basically very important members of a given church? And i read that they do have connections with their god, otherwise how would they do even half the things they can?
Also is the 1-step alignment difference applicable only to clerics or do paladins share this benefit? So a NG god would work for a LG paladin

>> No.53057889

I mean, i'm a relatively new poster here and while I don't find the pfg games that interesting it certainly belongs here. You have to realize generals aren't just topic threads and are more semi-communities inside the larger one. Games based off /pfg/ belong in /pfg/ and there's no doubt about that, even if they are terrible power-wank gestalt fests littered with every 3p producer imaginable.

And really a thread's OP can be just about anything, all it needs to even resemble is some sort of character assuming it doesn't violate global rules. As far as I can tell people just get mad over the typical "anime ugh!!" ideas

>> No.53057927

>I know about the alignment requirement, but aren't paladins basically very important members of a given church?
Ehhhh no, not really. They often ARE, because being a LG paragon of power and virtue in an LG church is great, but they don't have to be aligned with a god at all.

>otherwise how would they even do half the things they can
The power of virtue.

>> No.53057936


We're also neglecting the fact that the thread was made early, and given the thread topic along the trend of the OP pic, was an asshole trying to get a rise out of people.

So the best way avoid a shitstorm is to ignore the guy and start our own thread with something more interesting and more "General".

Also the guy always gets their headline image from the treading Pixiv images and that annoys me oddly.

I just realized what the Syrinx for Starfinder should be; they should be like the Seekers from Advent Rising, an outwardly authoritarian yet kindly race who uplifts primitive species in exchange for a thousand years of servitude, who are in truth fanatical purifiers trying to exterminate a species or three that threatens their legitimacy.

Would you run a one on one game for this person?

>I would like to do a solo campaign of the World's Largest Dungeon with a multi-gestalt character concept with PrCs thrown in along the way. I can play over skype and / or with something like roll20. It is silly conceptually, yes, but I would enjoy it and I am sure a DM out there would too. I just like the concept of the World's Largest Dungeon as a Mega Dungeon so I think it will work nicely.

>The character has 14 base classes and 11 prestige classes. The idea isn't optimization or crazy brokenness. I just chose a bunch of things I like and things I've never used in order to be prepared for any situation.

So when a Monk of the Healing Hand uses True Sacrifice, are they removed from everyone's memory as well?
Or is it just their name?

>> No.53059522

It looks like he's remembered, but his name is forgotten.

>> No.53059689

True Sacrifice (Su): At 20th level, in a final self less act, a monk of the healing hand can draw in his entire ki, which then explodes outward in a 50-foot-radius emanation. All dead allies within the emanation are brought back to life, as if they were the subject of a true resurrection spell with a caster level equal to the monk’s level. When the monk does this, he is truly and utterly destroyed. A monk destroyed in this way can never come back to life, not even by way of a wish or miracle spell or by the power of a deity. Furthermore, the monk’s name can never be spoken or written down again. All written mentions of his name become nothing more than a blank space. This ability replaces perfect self.

Remembered but unknown, raw.

>> No.53059694

The picture isn't what is wrong with the OP (although it is annoying and unrelated to the topic it gives). No, the wrong part of it is the blatantly-baiting "topic" that exists only to shitpost.

Funny thing here is how it never tells you what exactly comprises a name

Sounds about right, honestly. I really like the Syrinx in general. Intelligent cultured scholars that reached that height because of their massive amount of slave races and creatures they modify to their own ends, but they seem to do it in a kindly manner. Its odd but very nicely seen to. In general though don't they seem to not care about other races as long as they don't threaten them directly.

I actually had a monk of the healing hand use this ability in-game. It was a long campaign, 1-20 and he was the last of the original party. Everyone else had changed characters at least once or twice.

It was a quest to reach mythic levels, and it was very, very dramatic. I could tell the story if you want, but the way we played it, he was completely destroyed, and the only thing left was a feeling that no one could quite place, of a companion they knew but could not see.All written mentions, even as a passing mention were erased.

Oh hush, the Hitler Channel it might have been, but we still got shows like Modern Marvels and the occasional 2-hour special on some apocalyptic disease or magnificent period of some half-remembered empire's history. Hitler and World War 2 was simply the background buzz punctuated by the exclamation points we all knew and loved.

But now what do we get? How is Pawn Stars history, or American Pickers? How is Ancient Aliens history? These are all low-budget, low-quality shows only tangentially related to History by mere virtue of them giving some hackneyed excuse they're "discussing the products," like a two sentence explanation of some shitty bike in a redneck's backyard is somehow more profound than a 50 minute special on engineering marvels.

Come to think of it, Discovery Channel's the exact same way with that - holy shit, I can't even type it without a straight face - Naked and Afraid, Living in Alaska, The Last Alaskans, Alaska: The Last Frontier, Alaska Police and Mountain Men: Alaska.

It's a 50/50 split between Alaska and survivalist shows, anon.

More specifically, they take camera crews and simply follow weirdo rednecks and homesteaders that live out in the deep parts of Alaska or Montana, cataloguing their lives and making something as simple as cutting down a tree seem like an epic, nail-biting affair.

The other half are "survival" shows in the same vein as Survivor, only without the reality TV voting aspect - instead, the "contestants" merely hold out until they're picked up. Half of these shows are "true survival" where the channel saves money by telling the contestants to video-tape themselves, and the other half have a dumbass gimmick like "Naked and Afraid," which is a show where the contestants are told to survive on an island or in the desert...

The claim the Ancient Alien theorists make (they use that term with the same reverence and wait you would "engineer" or "physicist") is that, since almost every crater on the Moon is the same depth, the asteroids were colliding with solid metal just beneath the surface.

The other claim they make is that seismic readers we left on the Moon can pick up even the tiniest vibrations caused by micro-impacts - which isn't a sign the Moon is geologically dead, oh no - it's a sign the Moon is both hollow and made out of metal.

This is the same show that used RECENTLY DECLASSIFIED Moon Landing footage to show a blurry rock that was, in their words, the skull of an ancient robot.

I don't know, man. I just don't fucking know! They haven't gone feral enough to suggest the Sun is something special, though they did talk about Japan in relation to those sunken pyramids they found off the coast some years back.

Which is, personally, the greatest tragedy of the show and a sign the History Channel is well and truly dead. You've got these immensely old, mysterious ruins built in a style that suggests relation to the other great places of the world... And you use them to say "Aliens did it." It's a waste.

I could talk at length about what the Mermaid Special was, but let me say it in a very simple, concise way.

The Discovery Channel made a 2-hour documentary about Mermaids - not as a mythological creature, but as though they were real. They used experts, eyewitnesses, even "skeletal remains" and fossils to construct a narrative that Mermaids were not only real, but they still existed.

This was made when people still trusted Discovery, and it was regarded as a source of science and information.

Hi /pfg/ I have a problem.
We're currently running through a written campaign and we have some serious loot issues going on.
As in, we have too much. After the last dungeon, when we tallied all things up, we scored roughly 200 000gp, each.
We have two crafters We noticed early how generous the GM is with money and have capitalised heavily. But not everyone can invest the feats or have a caster level.

So we can't possibly spend 250 days crafting we need to buy things. But we have already gotten the things we CAN buy, we are heavily stocked on wands, reagents and the like. Our weapons, armors, amulets and rings are crafted so we are basically waiting for them to be improved. We already have the estates our characters wants and unless we're starting to invest in things likekingdom building, nothing I am interested in, I got nothing that's under the purchase limit in the cities we can get to with greater teleport.

But even after stocking up, I'm sitting here with over 150 000gp. What are good things to spend them on?

>enough to fix monks

Core monk is hot shit and you should stick to Unchained unless you want the zen archer archetype, but "Fix monks" is a very open ended question. 25 PB (or good rolls) can "fix monks", and a Dragon Style Strength Monk can be an effective martial in a 1pp environment. Deadly Agility, meanwhile, on a UMonk means you can focus purely on Dex/Wis and function just fine. You end up with less potential for fat damage (benefit less from enbiggening spells, no 1.5x multipliers), but it's a net gain in terms of ease-of-use.

>like using their wisdom for damage, or dex for damage
In 3pp maybe, in 1pp this requires magic items, which detract from other necessary bonuses you would otherwise get.

Well. The story goes it was a campaign, 1-20 and we were at level 20 about to breech into mythic levels with a mythic tier quest. The monk was part of this order called The Order of The Jade Dragon's Fist, and his goal to become a master of his style was to defeat an avatar of the jade dragon goddess in combat.

The rest of the party at the time was made up by a paladin, wizard, cleric, and barbarian. The wizard's brother had become a powerful lich who was trying to take the place of a recently dead god of death and time. Using his vast magic and divine artifacts of the gods, he was able to entrap the dragon goddess to use her to fuel his ascent. With these divine tools he could command her avatar while she was locked away.

So the party battled through a few different planes of reality to make it to the lich's domain of time and death. Through the while, the paladin's quest to locate the shield of the sun was successful, and she found it, and was planning on using the power to destroy the would-be god. They now stood before the lich's tower, and were faced with the controlled avatar of the jade dragon. The party sprung into action, and it was going fine, until the dragon used an ability to disarm the paladin from the shield which fell into a time pool. Luckily, the fucker always put weapon cords on all of her things, but for the one round it would take to reel it back in, she was at a loss for defense, and was instantly turned to stone.

The cleric wizard used his turn to cast wish, and wish that the paladin did not fail her save against that, but the wizard got AOEd by an invisible enemy in the stones. The barbarian and monk were holding back the avatar while the cleric went to revive the wizard, but he was pushed into a time pool by an invisible enemy.

Now the fight was tougher. The monk and barbarian were fighting, but the barbarian was knocked into negative HP. But because of Frenzied berserker, he still kept fighting. The monk backed away because of a promise he made with the barbarian around level 5. The barbarian battled with -200 or so HP, and chunked the avatar each time. Eventually though, his frenzy ran out, and the monk was the last to fight.

The avatar of the dragon stepped over to the monk, who stood up to return to the fight. The avatar was weakened now, and while he might be able to destroy her, it would be a battle hard fought. So he centered himself, and drew in all of his ki. The dragon goddess witnessed what was happening through her avatar that was being controlled, and wept tears of jade. It was a pure sacrifice. No one at the table knew he had this ability until he used it. (besides the GM of course) so we looked at him stunned. The monk sacrificed all that he worked for, he was so close completing his goal, in an effort for the rest of the party to live and complete the quest.

The monk was destroyed. The party restored, but they all knew how. The only thing left of the monk, was when people thought about him, a feeling of pure serenity and peace. The action of pure selflessness was saw by the goddess, and moved her enough to break the control over her avatar long enough to allow the rest of the party to pass into the tower to defeat the lich.

Wisdom. If normal RP is a campfire than ERP is throwing gasoline on the flames, perhaps the only way I've seen campaigns or even character relationships survive in a post-ERP campaign is when the players conscientiously hold back on ERPing future encounters, or at the very least keeping the sex-stuff to a minimum in their encounters.

You still aren't jerking it to the other player, because your focus is not on the player. Your focus is on the character, as well as the things they are typing.

She felt good about her game getting hyped in the thread, and wanted to build on that, so she chose the characters that had been getting hyped the most (for all the wrong reasons). I'll admit, it feels good when a character I write gets some positive feedback. But hype's a hollow, fickle thing.

I think that if anybody in that game is smart enough to want actual adventure and not just F-list on Roll20, they'll jump ship and leave for greener pastures.

Are you Kyras, Branwen, Andrik, or Antoinette?
If so, you're lying. If not, I believe you.

Then remove them from the game and replace them with someone else. It's not hard. Normal people do this all the time.

If this is the driving force behind your campaign then you're a shit DM and your campaign is destined to be shit.

>> No.53063363

But how does one tell? Do you just go to every applicant and ask if they're just here to fuck people online? Do you just reject the people who get hyped the hardest?

And, considering that such an app would violate the spirit of what I'm going for and would represent someone joining the game with subversive goals from the outset, I wouldn't have any compunctions about dealing with that player OOCly and telling them to cut that shit out, and if they don't listen proceeding to mangle their character and give them the boot.

Well, probably start by not accepting apps from the usual suspects of this stuff, not hard to look at other high-profile lewd games and get some names.
I'd probably be going for a campaign theme of "unlovable things" or something, where monstrous and ugly characters are encouraged. Cute animal people? Fucking gone, try something closer to Warhammer Fantasy's beastmen. Tieflings? Doesn't matter if they're part succubus or not, they're monstrous looking and not sexy. You get the idea.

I'd be immediately suspicious of someone who's getting hyped really hard, because more than likely they're self-shilling to drive their popularity up.

And as for that other thing, I probably wouldn't accept someone who's app focuses too much on their tit size or cock size, implied or not.

That said, I don't begrudge people doing ERP shit, but I will give them one warning to take it to off-session PMs if I see them trying to insert it into game.

so what?

Was never a fan of it, made them feel too much like PoW. Hopefully they allow stuff to just work, no need for focus. Also hoping they find some sort of balance with less "9999 damage" combos and maybe some better utility. And moving away from being anime as fuck, but that ain't gonna happen

Wubu seemed to be into some of the "meme" applications even before the supposed ERP tripe started.

Which is why her campaign was never going to be any good.

it was called 'blingmaker' and you expected it not to be a meme?

imo, the kingmaker backbone is why it will never be good and also why I didn't apply. That AP is trash.

Question: If I'm playing a Sorcerer/Unchained Monk with the Scaled Fist archetype and we're starting at level 1, is it more important to have 18 STR or 18 Charisma? If it matters, I'm using the Draconic Bloodline and plan to use primarily spells that don't worry as much about enemy DCs (buffs, summons, occasionally touch-damage and touch-debuffs spells like Scorching Ray and Ray of Enfeeblement). Plus a few utility spells like Invisibility, Glitterdust, etc. Also, whichever of the twin abilities I don't have at 18 will be at 16, so it's not a question of no charisma versus no strength.

>> No.53065882

If you're not planing to use spells that force saves, then the difference between +3 cha and +4 cha is jack and shit until you either hit 7th level or get another +1 cha.
The difference between +3 str and +4 str will be every single attack.
