Pathfinder table for new members - On Smogpeak's Singing Shore

I guess I'll roll initiative and take this chance to suggest a new table. I'm new, I know there are other members trying to get into the full groups. I'm a PF virgin but I've put my heart into absorbing my books, and I have the beginnings of a campaign (shipwrecked on an island in turmoil), so I can gm if it means getting another group up and going. But anyone who wants to take the reigns may do so. I can play any night, but Saturday seems to fit with y'all.

    That was a blast guys. Couldn't have gone better, regardless of turnout. I'm so glad you charged the ship and got captured. I wasn't expecting you to even get on the ship! It'll be interesting having the party arrive by separate means. I'll make sure it stays fun!

    • Jake N.

      Yea I like it more as a location than a store. I have amazon for that. The staff is cool.

    What books are ok and are you cool with homebrew races

    May 8, 2013

    • Jake N.

      No worries, if anything I say goes against what you're used to, and the group agrees, I'll probably change my mind. I'm new, and I'm trying to go by the book, but I don't want to be overbearing when you all know more than I do :)

      Its all variable just lets you output meaner monsters and more fun puzzles if we have alittle more beef on our toons

    Here's a basic campaign premise to help with your character concepts. Your country is prosperous and old, and time has lead to the death of adventuring -- all corners of your lands are fully explored, and no serious conflicts have broken out in years. But before you resort to getting a day job, word gets out that the Emperor's fleet has discovered an unknown land across the sea, untouched by your people. Feeling the fire of adventure burning in your chest, you travel to the Great Eastern Port and purchase the first available transport to what people are calling the Virgin Lands. Let's hope you get there in one piece!

    *this is dave* are you ok with using 3d6k2+8 for stats?
    makes you have a stat between 10 and 20 with two 1's being 10 and two 6's being 20. keeps the heroes on the stronger side but makes for a more fun game

    May 8, 2013

    • Jake N.

      I like to use 4d6k3. 3d6k2+8 for every stat seems a LITTLE overly buff to me. I like when most have at least one stat below 10.

      May 8, 2013

    • Jake N.

      But if everyone is used to 3d6k2+8, we can certainly take a vote and do it that way.

    we could use one more person we could stretch it with 3 people maybe

    May 8, 2013

    • Jake N.

      Dont worry, I'll make it work with any amount of people. All you guys need to worry about is showing up :) I did lose my character sheets unfortunately, but I still have lots of extra dice

    should we roll characters before the game?

    Chris was going to be a ranger i think

    May 8, 2013

    • Jessica M.

      No. Roll at Empire. This is good if people want to join last minute, or even at the game store

      May 8, 2013

  • Jessica M.

    We should roll characters together at Empire :( Also, I really wouldn't worry about group size. Our Satutday game started with three people (including the gm lol) and now we have to decline people because the group is so large.

    • Jake N.

      Thursday seems like a good night. It's no problem, I know it's hard to schedule these things around people's lives.

      May 7, 2013

  • Jake N.

    Ok, I've ordered the new books. They probably won't be here by Friday, but by next week I'll be able to properly GM with a placemat, screen, tons of pawns, all the usual classes and archetypes, and loads of dice. I really appreciate how easy your group is making putting a table together, I want to have everything I need to repay the favor and host a good game. The location has lots of tables, but we might need to stand Warhammer-style. But it's a great place to play.

    I lied about a guest. I've a friend who wants to play also, he has a bit of experience with it

    May 6, 2013

    • Jake N.

      Have him join the group, I'm glad to have him, but the organizers might want to prioritize the current members who are trying to get a table. If they don't say anything then bring him along.

      May 6, 2013

  • Jeremy

    Fridays don't work for us. Sundays would though

    May 6, 2013

  • Jake N.

    I have lots of extra dice and character sheets for anyone that needs them. The resources I have are the Core, Adv Player Guide, Bestiary, and Ult Equipment. No Ult Magic or Ult Combat yet unfortunately, but feel free to roll those classes if you have the book for reference.

    May 5, 2013

      the online srd has all of the books for easier gm reference if you have a laptop

      May 6, 2013

    • Jake N.

      Yea I use it on my phone, so I can reference the bare bones of the books I don't have.

      May 6, 2013

  • Jeremy

    Pretty stoked for a new group. I'm also a PF newbie, but am willing to take the time to learn.
    I've only got the core book and some dice myself
