Re: Restart character and game discussion
Yes. I am confused, though. Are you stopping RotRL and starting JR, or continuing RotRL and also starting JR? I am fine either way.

Re: Restart character and game discussion
Jade Regent.  The assumption is Logalog, Talis and Tanrov finished RotRL while Jan and Zer-wedula had another epic adventure(s), thus the increase in level (and I will be giving you lots of gp, I am calculating that at the moment).  Then at some point after that you are joining up with them as they journey north.  You can tell a story of what your character would have done after stopping Xanesha and her Skinsaw men, or you can chose an Adventure Path to have gone on.  You are epic level characters now, think BIG.

I will update you later on what you know about what happened to Logalog, Talis and Tanrov.

Okay, so Zer is an  8/8 gestalt per the RTJ and I will proceed that way.

Re: Restart character and game discussion
Starting level 8/8Gestalt +30 feats
 - Choose a class and level it normally.
 - Choose a 2nd class and level it (using the gestalt rules), this may be a PRC if you qualify for it.
Starting Equipment = what you already have + 140,000gp(subject to DM approval)
                     + a MAJOR magic item (artifact powerful) chosen by DM;
                     + what would you Wish for (assume a friendly source who will tell you if you are wishing for too much)
you are going to want to buy stuff that;
1- gives a luck bonus
2- can see through fog


I also need some idea of Dalliemor, Jan and Zer-wedula's stories so I can connect everyone back together.  I've got some ideas.  How about Second Darkness? http://paizo.com/pathfinder/ad...ePath/secondDarkness
We could say you went through this AP.  This is where you picked up all those extra feats and levels.  It keeps you in the approximate area.  I do need some plot hooks of why your characters would be going to Karlsgard in the Lands of the Linnorm Kings.




What you have heard; The story of Logalog, Talis and Tanrov;
- after Magnimar they went to Turtleback Ferry/Fort Rannick and stopped some ogres trying to flood TF.  They learned about a Giant named Mokmurian who was putting together a giant army to invade the human lands.
- A sudden assault on the town of Sandpoint by stone giants and a dragon brings the looming threat home. After the giants are defeated, the heroes learn that they were but a scouting party, that the stone giants are massing for war. The only way to disrupt their advance is to strike at the Jorgenfist, the fortress of Warlord Mokmurian, the sinister giant responsible for gathering his people for war. What secrets wait to be discovered in the dungeons below the Jorgenfist, and what is the true reason the giants have rallied for war?  Mokmurian was only a pawn of Runelord Karzoug.
  They also rescued Rynshinn who had been caputred by Xanesha.  But Rynshinn was never the same after this.  She could wield powerful magic and was a little off.  Something about being sealed in a tomb with an undead or something.
- After defeating the giants of Mokmurian, the heroes discover that Karzoug, an ancient wizard from the long-dead empire of Thassilon, has returned to life. From his city fortress of Xin-Shalast high in the mountains, he has been using the giants to harvest souls to reclaim his lost power.
  The secret to defeating him before he can reclaim his realm and enslave the region lies hidden in a deadly dungeon called Runeforge.  They discovered the location of Runeforge from an antient Thalassion outpost that was under the Catacombs of Wrath under Sandpoint.
  Along the way to Runeforge they stopped by a place called Brinewall to help Amieko (Talis girlfriend) look for a family secret. (Module 1 from Jade Regent).
  After defeating the dragon that guards the entrance to Runeforge, the PCs must brave the haunted vaults below to discover the ancient forge capable of empowering weapons so that they can strike true against Karzoug. Yet in order to master this ancient magic, the heroes of Sandpoint must embrace the darkest magic of ancient Thassilon as their own.
- They returned from Runeforge with 2 teenage wizards (said to be from Runeforge) and 2 dragon heads (1 white and 1 red).  Little was said about what they faced, but the heroes were grim and now knew where to look for Karzoug/Xin-Shalast.  Before leaving Talis and Ameiko got married.  Then they left...and were never seen again.
  Scouts and others sent learned that Karzoug was defeated and his army had fallen apart.  But no word of what happened to the heros.  A few months later Ameiko gave the Rusty Dragon to the pair of wizards from Runeforge and left to seek her husband...

Logalog = halforc Sor(fire spells)/Summoner (can summon fey)
Talis = Rog/shadowdancer - ranged attacks
Tanrov = Oracle(sort of)/ranger - scimitar

Re: Restart character and game discussion
I might need help. I don't know what sort of class I should pair with Alchemist.

Maybe Gunslinger or Barbarian?

I am thinking of making Jan into a Beast type Alchemist, who can turn into a big giant monster and eat you...or pick up a horse and throw it at you...

Re: Restart character and game discussion
No gunslingers.  (see house rules)

If you are going melee alchemy, barbarian (or some other full bab class) would be a good idea.

Re: Restart character and game discussion
Right, right...hmm...Fighter looks good, lots of feats and full BAB...

Maybe a level or two of something else? Beast Ninja? :P

Hmm...let me check some things, sorry for the delay, things are going a bit weird for me at the moment.

Re: Restart character and game discussion
I knew I forgot something;

Because of the way I am doing gestalt, no multiclassing.  Once you start a class you need to take 8 levels.

You might want to look at Master Chymist .


Found this, thought it was funny.
quote:
Nothing gets people's attention like a random Ninja attack.

For bonus points after the attack is, hopefully, defeated and people search for loot; roll 1d3 (varies depending on adventure options) whatever number comes up is the adventure option that is responsible for the ninjas.

PCs care a lot more about an adventure option when it is sending Ninjas at them.




If you want to keep the feats simple I would recommend;
Great Fortitude
Improved Great Fortitude
Iron Will
Improved Iron Will
Lightning Reflexes
Improved Lightning Reflexes
x3 Toughness(8hp each)
x3 Open Minded(5 skill points each)
x5 Ability Training(+1 to stat each)


For spellcasters use the Sudden line of Metamagic feats
http://dndtools.eu/feats/minia...udden-quicken--2822/

Sudden Empower (MH)
Sudden Extend (MH)
Sudden Maximize (MH)
Sudden Silent (MH)
Sudden Still
x3Sudden Quicken
Note;- Sudden Quicken feat has Prerequisites of (Sudden Empower, Sudden Extend, Sudden Maximize, Sudden Silent, Sudden Still).  Quicken is no longer needed as a Prereq.

That should leave you with 5 feats to choose.

Re: Restart character and game discussion
Jan/Zer/Dal, I need a completed character done ASAP.  I don't like doing it this way, but you've had almost 2 weeks to remake your characters. I am planning on putting up a "Player wanted" ad tonight.  I meant to do it Monday, but work ran long. You need to get me a completed character before I choose someone else.

Re: Restart character and game discussion
Took me like three hours, but I got something that might work in a PM, I'll be doing some homework that is due for tomorrow now.

Sorry for not having done this sooner, RL was a pain. I need to get a new computer, because XP is no longer supported and stuff, it's a mess.

I should be more attentive now, I have a working computer at home which I am using now, now.

Again, sorry
