Under The Red Mountain [Pathfinder: 2-4 players]
« on: May 05, 2010, 06:56:13 AM »
Game Title: Under The Red Mountain
System: Pathfinder
Players Wanted: Frankly I'd be happy with any number however the more you get the slower the posting rate, so stick to topic title for now.
Posting Rate: At least one every other day, more (including PMs/e-mails) are of course welcome.
Special Rules: I dislike Pathfinders 1 skill rank per hit die skill system, beyond first level it will be ignored. Alignment is not mandatory but in its place I'd like a small paragraph detailing your characters normal motives.
Advancement Rules: Levels will be granted, not exp. If you wish to play a wizard request the items you would like to make when we get to that point.


Hey there fellow forum-goers. Most of you won't know who I am but a small number will. I used to post a lot on another forum, TSE, in which I participated in several PbP games and have one that's just shy of it's one year anniversary. I've slowly been building a game world by running campaigns and short-lived games in various locales and trying to draw everything together. There is a vague meta-plot but it is unlikely to come into play until the characters themselves have stumbled upon it. I am being open about this because I don't want you to despair when it rears it's ugly head in game. There is some fluff that you guys can request but it's not necessary to know.

Now for my game I'd like everyone to play Goblinoids (goblins/hobgoblins as played from the bestiary) that have lived in the same series of tunnels all their lives. I know this doesn't give a lot of room for backstory but I've found in the past that Play-by-Posts are excellent for character development as it plays out and that with the slow pace it's hard for everyones backstory to get a moment to shine that's not in the way.

I know so far this may seem a little negative in it's presentation but I have high hopes for the game and hell look at it this way, how often do you get to play a goblin in a potentially 'morally ambiguous' party?

Gah, how many games are you running now in this setting at once?  Three?

And why must I be tempted to participate in EVERY SINGLE ONE?

...If I think of a good character concept, I'll send it your way.  You bastard.  :P

I would love to participate, but I donít want to over-commit myself. I have 2 RPOL games and I am hopefully going to be playing the M&M game here. I wouldnít want to drag the game down, even though I am a pretty frequent poster.

If it seems like you might be a little short, I would like to join, but I just canít promise to post every day.
 Every other day should be fine though.

Let me know if you think I would fit.

Like I said every other day is fine. The community here is relatively small so I don't expect an attendence equivalent to other larger forums. I'd be glad to have you.

Great, sounds good.

When you say goblins from the monster manual, are you only referring to race (meaning we still pick stats and classes) or are you referring to exactly as listed in the MM?

If we are just restricted to race, but everything else is open, how many stat points do we start with?

It's the character creation using monsters as PCs rules, go wild. These may be different in the Pathfinder beastiary, I'll post the rules if you need them.

If there is still room and you are still trying to do this I would like to join. I haven't played pathfinder since alpha but It would be fun.
also What pointbuy/stat rules are you using?

Still room and I'm still trying to do this. You can roll stats. If I can't trust your rolls at the start of the game I can't trust your rolls in the game, I'd rather everyone was just honest with themselves.

I remembered the dice roller, but I couldn't remember how it worked.
Searched dice roller on the fourms and found the command.The command is : dice xdy  : without the spaces between the colons
Now to roll my Stats correctly I am doing 3d6 in order so dont be suprised if my stats suck.
srt Rolling 3d6:
(1+1+6): Total = 8

dex Rolling 3d6:
(4+1+4): Total = 9

con Rolling 3d6:
(2+2+3): Total = 7

int Rolling 3d6:
(6+6+1): Total = 13

wis Rolling 3d6:
(1+2+5): Total = 8

cha Rolling 3d6:
(3+1+3): Total = 7
