Eh, it's fine. I still have yet to even make it, and even then I have no idea how to run a game.

As for the level thing though, the idea I had for it was basically give everyone a level after X amount of trials/encounters, and a mythic rank and BOSS WEAPONS after each major boss. Said bosses will probably be able to create adds, and use MMO style area/shape effects as well

Also, either free or mandatory Divine Source, for story reasons I'm working on.

My character is a master craftsman by trade, and pretty autistic, so his relaxation usually involves sitting alone making things. His latest fascination is firearms. And anyone who makes the mistake of hanging out with him while he's on a crafting kick just gets an earful of half-coherent streams of consciousness as he works.

>> No.54362646

Sadly, I only have one in mind, and really only 2 bosses planned. It's a rapier that, when flourished, can release a cloud of rose petals to fly around the user. With an action, they can either be launched as razor projectiles, turn only a protective blinding flurry, or be absorbed by the rapier to turn it into a long and thorny vine

The boss will be called "The Rozen Sentinel", and will be about in the mid to late game. In terms of similarity to other bosses, she'd fulfill much the same role as Garl Vinland, Spear of the Church, O+S or Velstadt

Assuming the Fey are still a thing in Starfinder, how do you suppose the Gap would have affected them? I'm of the opinion that, in spite of not being able to remember vital bits of information about the past (such as the way the elves freaked out about it) the ones who are inclined to do so wouldn't skip a beat and still peddle that they know shit even when they don't and probably wouldn't be as put off as others would be.

More so estastic because now the fun of being mysterious can be a thing again

>> No.54364433


Well, I'm not sure we know enough about the Gap to even say whether it did affect them or not. Fey rather pointedly play by a different set of rules, after all. Would they even still deal with people when their favorite planet to hang out on up and vanished? Would they actually tell people if they knew what happened? There's just too many unknown variables.

The Drift explicitly aggressively cannibalises all the planes, tearing off large chunks of them.
Literally every deity other than Triune is interested in seeing it gone as their own planes are getting hurt by it.

>> No.54364589


There is that fact isn't it.

For my own purposes I plan on downgrading the severity some.

1. The Drift would be similar to sigil in that it's another way into the multi-verse as it where
2. Things and individuals from these planes arn't actively being canabalized but can wind up in the drift under extreme circumstances (i.e. demons/devils fucking up their teleports or summons going horribly wrong)

This is mainly for the direction I want my interpretation of the setting to go though.

What makes a paladin that happy?

>> No.54364658

I want to run a game where the players have pretty significant handicaps but they have to figure out how to counteract them in order to succeed. High power, but high risk.

Perhaps some kind of "assassination" campaign, where the goal is to tear through some kind of massive tower in an incomprehensibly MASSIVE city in order to kill one of the minor nobles in a bureaucracy that stretches up even to the Gods of the setting, to try and bring SOME change and start some kind of rebellion. In order to do this, a shadowy benefactor (i.e the Outsider from Dishonored, is what he'd be based on) would give them powers that would elevate them above and beyond the norm... but take from them something that makes them /human/. Consuming Power so to speak, that lets them compete against the Bureau, but which threatens to destroy them if they don't accomplish their goals.

I want to use the corruption rules, and have the corruptions be related to a near-death experience (whom the Benefactor would save them from). For example, a man working on machines, nearly crushed by them, could end up with the Promethean corruption, while someone nearly exsanguinated might end up with the Vampiric corruption.

The problem is, corruption mechanics SUCK and I have no clue how to fix them. Is there any third-party stuff for it or better versions of that ruleset?

You can optimize to beat his SR, or his saves. Or focus on buffs (if you'll fight alone - Time Stop, Gate - now you're not alone anymore). Or you can try to find no-save, no-sr spells (like Stone Call and Black Tentacles).

This is probably very easy challenge, considering that as a LVL 17 caster you probably have 9th level spells. And even if you're not - 8th levels are strong enough. Especially vs CR 12 enemy

The one thing that makes them not quite as assholish is NE is that while a CN character values his own personal freedom, generally they don't feel a constant urge to fuck other people over like NE or CE does, they just aren't apposed to the idea of screwing other people if they think its the best course of action.

I just found the most retarded combo in Pathfinder, lads.
First, let's take a look at the CRB:
>A check is a d20 roll which may or may not be modified by another value. The most common types are attack rolls, skill checks, ability checks and saving throws.
Second, let's take a look at the FAQ:
>>Alternate Ability Score-Based Checks: If I change the key ability score of a skill (or other check), for example, if I change Knowledge from Intelligence to Charisma, is it no-longer an Intelligence-based check? Is it now a Charisma-based check?
>Generally yes—at the time of rolling a check, if you substitute the ability score, the check is now based on the new ability score. In the example, at the time of rolling, Knowledge would now be a Charisma-based skill and not an Intelligence-based skill for you, which would affect things like feats, spells, or items that grant bonuses on checks based on their key ability score (like circlet of persuasion). However, if you are adding a second ability modifier to a check, this is not the case. For instance, when adding both Wisdom and Dexterity on initiative checks, initiative is still a Dexterity check, not a Wisdom check. Also, this changes the check only at the time of rolling, so this does not change static class features or options made during character building such as your class’s class skills. Classes that receive “all Intelligence-based skills” as class skills, for instance, are the victim of sloppy writing, and furthermore sometimes effects might muddy the water by only changing the ability dependency sometimes and not others, which is why you check the new dependency only for a specific given roll.
Third, let's take a look at this item:

My party did that at one point.

So, one of the players in our party hired a hitman (which was a retired character of his) to knock out the character, take him away from the enemy's camp, and then drop him off at a high-level Wizard's place who owed us a favor, which resulted in his soul being ripped out of his body and sealed away. I can't remember the exact specifics of what happened, but the other party managed to get the body back and attempted to resurrect him, but because his soul itself was sealed away the resurrection backfired and he became turbo dead and incapable of further resurrection. I think the end result is that the old character became a vestige that the player's new character bound.

Oddly enough, Asmodeus sponsors many orphanages across Cheliax and Isger, and is one of the few forms of relief aid an orphan can get there.
A child raised in the Infernal Church will probably grow up in a strict and disciplined home. Obedience, reverence, and discipline will be drilled into them from an early age, and chances are any misbehaivior will be dealt with molty through punishment and castigation rather than lecture and lesson teaching. Children will probably be expected to follow a strict curfew and schedule, and will generally be rewarded for snitching on other children's misdeeds, and they will be probably encouraged to form their own hierarchy amongst themselves.

While children growing up in this way will become probably dour, stern, and rigid, at the same time they will probably develop a strong sense of discipline and propriety which will give them an edge in pursuit of academic and business careers, or possibly skill in learning how to curry favor and information in diplomacy and politics. Monastic pursuits and law enforcement are also common career paths, with a well-known example being the Sisterhood of the Golden Erinyes, an all female martial order that recruits from female orphans and is very active in Isger. Sadly though, they may end up being lacking in fields of creative expression and ingenuity.

Pharasman clerics are very often midwives, and in many places such as Ustalav they fulfill the roles of doctors and undertakers both, providing succor for the living, consolement for the dying, and peace for the dead. In fact, the fact that Pharasma also sees the safe passage of new life into the world is one of the reasons why Urgathoa makes her clerics sneak around and cause abortions for couples, to both gain more undead slaves and to specifically spite Pharasma's midwife aspect.

It starts with some terrorized kobolds that are being slaughtered and infected with alien substances.

They tell the players about their old ruins where they lived, and players find zombies and druids of this god.

After they clean the area, they find some grim-looking gryphons that druids used to travel here, that basically have GPS, that travel back to this very secret forest, where they kill this High cleric and end the trouble.

Now, my problem is replacing the Fast Travel part. How to lenghten the way and add some more stuff. I'm looking into modules and Society scenarios for ideas right now.

Well, the gryphons aren't going to land directly in front of the high cleric, right? They're going to land in a location where the gryphons are raised. Then the PCs have to travel through the forest, figure out some way to avoid being detected, and discovery where the high cleric actually is located. Maybe he's hidden himself in a small pocket of the first world, which you can only reach by way of a special ritual. Maybe he's in a mysterious cavern beneath the earth where his god sleeps. Maybe the head cleric isn't a cleric at all, but a manifestation of the forest that you need to draw out into a corporeal form. Maybe the forest IS the cleric, and it's a Genius Loci, which is why the cleric keeps coming back after being killed as a different person.

There is no practical armor on males or females. But even so it's easier to find females in practical armor than good male art.
