Birthday Celebration
« on: January 04, 2019, 11:58:56 pm »
Hello all, so I'm just a few weeks away from being 25.  Being a member of society I place a large sentimental value on multiples of 25, so seeing as this is my first I thought I'd do a birthday party.  I haven't done one in a bit, so I may be rusty as to the particulars, but there'll be a sweet baked good of some sort and I'll be running a module for fun.  Not sure which module yet, though it might be a higher level one.  I'm open to suggestions.  I'll be using my own house rules/ban list.  Anyone else is welcome to run things on adjacent tables and also partake in the as yet to be determined baked good.  Think of it as a Game Day with some added flair.

The date will be the day after my actual birth anniversary, on Saturday the 26th of January.
The time will be noon til evening.  Either the end of the module, or the closing of the store if we don't finish. (I'd be up to continue on other days if that's the case.)
Location will be FLGS.
5517 Roosevelt Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32244

Thank you very much for your interest, and I'd appreciate responses and suggestions about possible modules soon so I can have time to prep.

Cheers,
Josh

Sounds awesome!  i would be happy to celebrate your birthday.  As far as modules, I'd be up for The Harrowing (9th level char) or Tomb of the Iron Medusa (14th lvl - I'd have to build a character that high), both sound interesting....

Alright.  I've started prepping for Tomb of the Iron Medusa.  You will need a 14th level character.

Here are the house rules, if something is not listed, assume it follows rules as written.
Point buy is based on the number of players.
1=35 (+1 mythic tier or free leadership feat, because dear god you shouldn't be doing this by yourself.)
2=30
3=25
4 to 7=20

Classes
If you choose Summoner from the APG, it will still use Unchained's spell list and Evolution point progression.

Starting Equipment
185,000gp, but the most you can spend on a single item is 40,000.

Hitpoints
Maximum 1st level, average rounded up every level thereafter. (Standard PFS rules.)

Traits
2 traits, drawbacks offer no additional trait, but you can take one for flavor if you want.  Campaign traits are banned, but ignore the rule that says you cannot have more than one trait per category.  So feel free to have your wizard have 2 magic traits, or your cleric have 2 faith ones.  Etc.

Publishers
Generally anything Paizo has published is fair game, as well as anything from the 3rd party book: Path of Iron by Ascension Games.

Alignment
The no evil rule is not in place here, but what is is the caveat that everyone in the party needs to work together and be willing to achieve the mission.  No backstabbing, no infighting.  It'll probably be easier to avoid this by just not being evil, but if you think you can make an antipaladin or something that cares about the group go ahead.  (Talk to the other players first though, since sometimes good characters will start fights with the evil ones just for being evil.)

Backstory
It can be really short, just a paragraph, but I want to know where your character is from in Golarion, and a little bit about their past.  14th level is really high, so feel free to make up something awesome they've done in their adventuring career.

Appearance
Two options, bring a printout of an image that you find that you want to be your characters appearance, or write a short but detailed description of the character to paint a mental image for myself and the other players.

Finally, please keep me appraised of your character ideas, and share them with the others.
Cheers,
Josh

The Tomb of the Iron Medusa

Hidden in the remote southern range of the World’s Edge Mountains lies a mysterious necropolis known in legend as the Tomb of the Iron Medusa. When the last heir of the dungeon’s long-dead noble builders hires the PCs to explore the forlorn and deadly site in search of evidence that may clear his family name, the intrepid heroes soon find themselves in over their heads. For the Tomb of the Iron Medusa does not give up its secrets lightly, and the dangerous truths that lie within its ancient, trap-laden crypts may have been hidden for very good reasons indeed.

Plus it's written by the same guy who wrote the fantastic Dragon's Demand, so it should be pretty good.

Sounds great to me, I'll start building my character (or maybe modify one of mine).  Are there any rules on races?

Don't break the game.  Other than that, you should be fine.  I trust nobody will roll up with a drow noble or something along those lines.  As for lore rules, most races are fine, if you're not certain, just ask.

Updated Players list.  (Also, as to the drow noble bit, I want to clarify that if you want to pick a drow or a half-drow and spend almost all your feats on the nobility feats, that's fine, just no starting with them.)

Hello! New to the forum thing. I'll be in attendance and playing too, as long as some emergency that keeps me from being in Florida at that time doesn't come up. Don't know what I'll be playing yet. And to those who have seen me around with Josh, and those who haven't, I'm Nadia and I look forward to playing with y'all.

I'm looking at a death/undead controller (as in control/destroy the enemies NOT raising an army), never done one and been wanting to.  Not sure what class yet but caster focused more than melee (oracle, cleric, etc...).  Doing research to start the imagination going... ;D 

Otherwise I have an Ifrit Wishcrafter Sorcerer that I will level up to 14 if I can't flesh out my undead idea.

I was considering a tiefling rogue/warpriest. Or maybe a Dhampir investigator or eldritch knight.
