Game Details
League Of Pathfinders is a game about characters who are members of an adventuring company that contracts out its operators to do work for various factions, individuals, and nations. It is pretty much a mercenary/bounty hunter guild, where players can choose to work alone, form/join a crew, or partner with another. Jobs have various difficulty levels that will be unknown to players in order to preserve realism. You might start an adventure and have no need for another but then find you need to recruit another pathfinder to fill in a skill set you don't have, or to simply help you combat a foe who is stronger than you(exceptions will be made for those who wish to play solo and don't want to have to recruit another player, but this is NOT a solo game).

We will be starting at level 8 though players are free to start at a lower level should they choose. We will be using Gestalt (any class combination), roll 4d6 drop lowest reroll 1s.

GM expects for himself a post rate of at least 3 times a week, striving for once a day and would ask players to try and do the same.

Game Rules
1. Please respect others, if you find you are having a conversation that is turning into a heated debate or you feel frustrated with another player contact the GM with your concerns and remain cordial.

2. My word may be law, but that doesn't make the law right. For instance, if I make a statement or ruling that you find to be wrong or not in alignment with the rules, let me know in a PM or designated thread. I may choose to retain my ruling and uphold it, but I will explain why I made said ruling should you ask.

3. This is for my sanity, but please only use your character PM thread to contact me. New PM threads you send me will be copied over into the correct thread and then deleted. I will label your thread with your character name. Likewise, when sending a message to another player, please label said message "Character A/Character B" NOT "hey", then continue to use the same thread for all further communications with this player. again, this is for organizational reasons.

Character Creation
1. Roll 4d6 drop lowest, reroll ones.

2. Gestalt any class combination.

3. Starting Level 8 or lower

4. Reference wealth table for starting money/gear. All players are currently considered to be living at the various League facilities.

5. If it's in a paizo book or SRD, I'm allowing it. If you want it, I'll probably allow it. Below is a srd document but feel free to use others, as there are many.

If you do not have access to the rules, or a certain book-

Post Format and Rate
Basic grammar, writing in 3rd person past tense, and colored dialogue will be the general rules for post format. All rolls and and results will be posted in private txt to the GM. Do not try post what another character does, this will be edited out of your post.

In combat, opposition basic stats and HP will be posted to allow players the ability to see if they hit or not, and for how much damage they do. This should help speed along encounters. If a player writes something the GM feels is inappropriate or incorrect it will be edited out with an explanation as to why.

The GM expects a post rate for himself of at least every 3 days, with an effort to make one IC post everyday. Players are asked to do so as well. Players that are holding up the game will be NPCed by the GM.

Languages
We will be using languages and the secret groups when speaking.

Sign Language is a justifiable way of communicating, but it is important for crews to make sure they have the ability to communicate if they wish to work effectively together.

Tip: Use [Language unknown:  <enar>] rather than "Private to group" to have the text visible but automatically scrambled for people who don't speak the language (i.e. aren't in the group).

PvP
I am not outright banning PvP action, but if both players do not agree to it or wish to fight, I ask that players be willing to respect that and not pursue taking action against a player who wishes to avoid PvP.

Otherwise, go at it.
