    At present, I'm making a Magus. I've got fluff starting to build up in my head, partly based on what's building up in the mechanics.

    On second thought, I'll probably go Swashbuckler: Inspired blade. There's lots of magicy people already, and every good horror story needs a mundane.

    Golarion deities with favored weapon whip: Calistria, Matravash, Lissala, Ahriman, Dahak, Moloch, Rytara, Llamolaek, Abraxas, Gogunta, Ragadahn, Jalaijatali, Vevelor, and Abhoth (though not really available in this game.) Give 'em a google. Turns out mostly evil deities favor the whip, but there's a few good and neutral mixed in.

    I think I'll throw some interest in! Thinking either Phantom Thief URogue or Curator Occultist. Leaning towards the latter because I already have one made up from another horror game that didn't get off the ground. Also happened to be level 5. :P

    Maybe an archaeological professor or researcher working for the Arcanamirium or a Pathfinder from the Society...

    I will have Eidolon with lands speed and as a synthesist this will allow me to move on land fairly reliably.

    Posting interest in a Mercenary Occultist with a heavy focus on melee combat and esoteric knowledge. If you think a Witcher, you'd be pretty close to right. I'm hoping to have something more substantial by tomorrow.

    Either of those concepts could work quite well and are nice and thematic for this type of game as well.

    Question: The "Heard the Call" campaign trait allows those without access to occult unlocks to use them twice per day/week, but occult skill unlocks are usually only able to be used once per day/week. If you possess both, are you able to use them twice a day/week?

    I'm still on the fence about my concept. This morning I got an inclination for a Silksworn Occultist, which made me think of a Chelaxian Noble from Varisia (and secret half-elf, due to his father's tryst with a strange elven woman from the sea), who is on the expedition representing both his father and the Acadamae. The Silksworn would be much more of a caster while the Curator or Phantom Thief idea would be pure textbook/support. Maybe I'll flip a coin...

    Perhaps the wording isn't all that clear for the trait. The intention is, that if you can use occult skill unlocks you simply receive a +4 trait bonus on skill checks to use them. You gain no additional uses of them beyond what is normal for the occult skill unlock.

    If you cannot normally use occult skill unlocks (you're not a psychic caster or you do not possess the Psychic Sensitivity feat) you may use an occult skill unlock twice per day (instead of 0 times per day) with a +4 bonus on each attempt. You still cannot use a single occult skill unlock more times per day/week (for automatic writing) than you normally would be able to.

    Edit: I adjusted the wording, hopefully it's more clear now.

    Name: Orthra Arvanxi
    Race: Human (Chelish)
    Class: Inquisitor
    Archdevil: Geryon, Lord of Forbidden Lore and Heresy
    Alignment: Lawful Evil
    Campaign Trait: Thrune Loyalist
    Character Sheet: Here (WIP)

    Spoiler: Image (with a flail handle instead of a sword hilt)
    Show

    Spoiler: Background
    Show
    Orthra is a second daughter of a minor line of House Arvanxi, a noble family of Westcrown that has fallen upon hard times ever since one of its daughters ran off to marry the King of Korvosa. In hopes of regaining the favor of House Thrune, Orthra's parents Chrysaor and Calliroê sent her to the Church of Geryon be trained as an Inquisitor.

    In other religions, Inquisitors hunt heretics. But the archdevil Geryon is the source of all heresies. And Diabolism is an orthopraxic philosophy rather than an orthodoxic one: it is more concerned with correct outwardly practice than correct internal belief. Doctrinal disagreements are also less of an issue when devils can be summoned from the Nine Hells to answer any factual questions (though they do not always answer truthfully). The followers of Geryon do not fear heresy, but see it as containing the seeds of forbidden and hidden knowledge.

    Treason, however, is another matter entirely. Orthra works for the Chelish secret police, which consists of Hellknights and Inquisitors beholden to various archdevils. Her immediate superior is Dabaran, a Hellknight of Moloch.

    Geryon rules over the oceans. Thus, when the sole survivor of the Rising City reached Cheliax, it made perfect sense to Dabaran to assign Orthra to this case. And the fact that she is an Arvanxi means that if she dies on the mission, there will be very little political fallout.

    I find it interesting that two of the applicants are worshiping Eritrice and Geryon. Not only are they both obscure, they're both enemies, and both applications came in immediately after each other. Haha, very strange.

    I've finished all the crunch for my frontliner Occultist, Thomas "Silverblack" Danavis

    He's built as a frontline combatant with good to excellent damage output, solid defenses and the ability to absorb a great deal of punishment thanks to his chosen Implements. I'll work on fluff over the course of the next couple of days, but expect something halfway between a monster hunter for hire and a Dark Souls protagonist. I've tried to make his mechanics as clear and easy to parse as possible, but the mechanical complexity of Occultist Implements inherently makes for a bit of a dense class feature section. Let me know if you want me to fiddle with anything, and I'll do what's necessary.

    That is indeed very interesting. Cheliax is one of the few places where the lesser archdevils have their own cults so this game seemed like a good place to explore that.
