    Default Werecritter, kitsuni, and wolfware game. 3.5/ PF

    Pathfinder/3.5 werecreature game.

    Backstory

    There was a crusade against Werewolves. All the other shapeshifters got caught up in it. Whole towns were subjected to scratch tests with silver and cold iron needles under full moons. Anything remotely resembling a shifter was hunted and burned. The lycanthropes responded with ‘forced recruitment’. It got to the point where casters on both sides were making spells and pacts of mass destruction. Spells to unveil every shapeshifter in a region. Spells to harm anything vulnerable to silver or iron. Spells that would convert everyone in a kingdom into wererats…

    It got to the point that devils, demons, and fey started acting as peacemakers. Neutral gods stepped in to help the fey. By the end of it, most of the gods were involved and told the clerics and druids to work something out.

    The shifters accepted sanctuary in the fey woods for 100 years, and agreed to be altered to reduce their reproduction. They agreed that after wards they would hide themselves, and form a council to enforce this. They also agreed to be ‘useful’ in protecting the civilized peoples. After all, witch, fiend, and undead hunts often turn into werewolf hunts. The clerics agreed to calm the hysteria, and suppress information about shifters, so long as the sheep remained safe.

    You are a team formed by the Elders of the Council to “be useful”. Collect stray cubs. Hunt down rogues. Find ‘troublesome” items. Go kill that big scary owlbear or rabid coyote before someone starts screaming ‘werewolf’. There is a warlock who’s been trying to order werewolf fangs at the magic mart, go have a ‘word’, maybe ‘give ‘em some”...discreetly.

    Meta Set up.
    This game will be based on PF modules and adventure paths, perhaps with the occasional 3.5 module thrown in.. While some alterations will be made, Box Text will be used whenever possible. We will be starting out in Sandpoint, then moving to Crown of the Kobold King and meander around Runeswords and Crimson Throne. The early adventures should be a curb stomp, but there are higher level encounters around.


    Rules to be aware of:

    While we will mostly be using Pathfinder, some 3.5 throwbacks are in effect.

    Undead, constructs, plants, ect cannot be critted and are not subject to precision damage.

    Casting from different classes is tracked separately, and will have different casting stats, so if you multiclass between Sorcerer and Wizard you will be using CHA and INT.

    3.0/3.5 spells may sometimes be used.
    DR and resistance rules may vary by creature.

    We are tracking encumbrance.

    We are using PF experience, medium track. We are not using multiclassing penalties, but you still get your favored class bonus if you take levels in your favored class.

    IF you are using 3.5, use 3.5 skills system. If you are using pf, use the PF system. If you later multi class across systems, use the system you started with.

    Silver and cold iron. If your character is vulnerable to a material, then he doesn’t like to be around it. He might wash after touching silver coins. He won’t touch a silver weapon. He can’t touch a magic silver weapon. The party treasurer is someone who isn’t affected by silver.

    Checks for involuntary shifting occur: Rise of full moon 3 times a month (using 30 days for convenience), The first time seeing the full moon, or going outside while it is up. When at half hp. When injured by a weapon that breaks DR. When on fire. When swallowed whole. When taking constriction damage. When under a fear effect, confusion, or frenzy. WHEN USING BARBARIAN RAGE.

    The natural weapons of creatures with the same type of DR bypass DR.

    There shouldn’t be very many silver or cold iron items around, but the number will increase if the party isn’t discrete.

    SETTING:
    Pathfinder default, but with shines and temples of other faiths scattered about. Norse, Greek, Egyptian, GH, FR.

    ---

    The race is on.
    8 players.
    Only one of each type of monster. First completed sheet gets that monster.

    If the game goes well, I might open a second group, or recruit another GM to take on another group.


    ALIGNMENT AND MOTIVATION:
    These creatures probably do not want to be working together. They may individually want to help their people or impress their elders, but do not see themselves collectively as belonging together. Never mind canines and felines and rats working together; never mind Fey and outsiders and magical beasts working together; never mind alignment conflicts; just werewolves working together is WRONG. Most things labeled ‘werewolf’ do not have the same origin, and even those that do are tribal, or solitary, and territorial.

    BUT THEY HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER. There is a theme of being restrained.

    The good aligned can’t attack the evil party members any more than the reverse. The Evil and Chaotic can’t act anyway they want. Oaths, Spells, Quest, Geas, and Fear of the Elders force them to stay in check and accomplish the mission. There may be some mild theft and vandalism, but they won’t blow their cover or screw over their companions, because they have to make it back as a group.

    We won’t be using Quest/geas effects in game, and the players are expected to play along. Whatever would motivate your character to “stick with the program” is assumed to be hanging over them. They may grumble about it in character… but the worse they will do to each other are mild pranks and a “friendly rivalry” to kill the most goblins.

    EQUIPMENT:
    See BANNED below. The elders have given you 1000 gp worth of equipment in addition to basic armor and weapons (non masterwork). Select from the Pathfinder and/or 3.5 equipment lists. Spellbooks, cheap components, and holy symbols (wooden or tin) are provided at no charge. Everyone gets 2 potions of cure minor (yep, 1 hp), 2 potions of clw, and 2 of cmw, and 10 days rations.

    The party treasurer, will be provided with some coin and letters of credit for ‘expenses’ (meals, inns) He is expected to get receipts.

    Character options: (yes, this is a mess and will produce an uneven group. This is a feature, not a bug)

    No dedicated aquatics: Weresharks, Were seals, Carp.
    No Swarms.
    No dragons or were-not animals/beasts (weretroll).
    No silverbloods

    BANNED: leadership feat. Endless food/beverage items. “Bands of pulling”. Monks and monk-like mechanics. Monks belt. Spells to summon or create undead. Item creation feats other than scribe and brew (we won’t be doing pre-game [at all] or in-game crafting other than scrolls or potions). Artificers. Firearms. Tech traits and feats. Templates other than those described below. Flaws. Corruption, taint, mutations, grafts. Intentional possession and the sell, exchange, lease, rental, or otherwise bartering of souls. Undead conversion. Book of 9 Swords/Spheres.

    Watched carefully: practiced spellcaster.

    Generation:

    1. Play the monster manual entry, published example character, or pre-generated NPC of up to level/elc 8. You need only assign a name and buy additional gear, and perhaps adjust gender. You won’t level up as fast as players choosing other options, but you may have more diverse class options. Choose this if you want a fast character, or if you want to ‘roleplay’ a predefined character, or you want to be the ‘big bad’ for a while until the others catch up and surpass you. “Big good” for hound archons.

    All monster manual entries are subject to approval and adjustment. Suggested sources: Pathfinder, 3.0 wotc, 3.5 wotc, Creature Collection (scarred lands), Tome of Horrors (Necromancer games), Bestiary of Loerem.
    May level by class or hd, but no complaining about it.

    Email me a link or a picture of the pages for consideration. (Consulting with your GM before a game is fair use)

    2. Class and level adjustment race or template. Make a 25 point (use pathfinder system) character with at least 2 hit dice and one class level. Note the elc on your sheet. Choose this if you are a rules purist (3.0, 3.5), or want to play the Oriental Adventures version of hengeyokai. Exchange Curse or Afflict with Weapon Specialization (natural weapon), another “weapon” feat for a natural weapon, an “ability focus” feat, or toughness.
    For cases where a choice of “Afflicted vs natural” is needed, DR5/Silver until end of Level 5, then +1DR/silver per level until level 10. For fluff, all characters are ‘natural’ but aren’t up to full power yet.

    4. Class and monster race levels. Make a 25 point character. Apply the first racial template level. After start of play, every other level must be the racial template level, though it is up to you if level 3 is class or race. If you want to take all the racial levels first you may. If you are using the wotc template, ignore the increasing level adjustment. Exchange Curse or Afflict with Weapon Specialization (natural weapon), another “weapon” feat for a natural weapon, an “ability focus” feat, or toughness.

    5. Got a Were-critter source book you want to suggest?

    Starting “RACE” for templates is restricted. Human, halfling (Standard, stout, tall fellow), elf (standard, wood, wild), dwarf (hill, mountain), gnome, half elf. You may be halforc only if using a pregen. Werefoxes are always female elves. If taking an Asian creature or class, may use Bamboo elf (Jade Dragons).

    CLASS: restricted by region/race/template.
    Banned: Monk. Necromancer.
    Modified: anything with monk mechanics (flurry, unarmed strike, ect). OA shaman may exchange monk abilities for either Paladin healing abilities or PF Channel Positive energy.

    Available to all regions: Standard Players Handbook core classes* [NOT BASE], witch (dmg, PF, Arcana Evolved, Mongoose), adept (yes, the NPC, Add one domain), Archivist (Heroes of Horror), Greenbond (Arcana Evolved), Spirit Shaman, oa shaman (as modified above), pf Shaman, Huxtor (Deadlands). All archetypes and alternate abilities require approval. May use spell points.

    *Try to relate your sorcerer blood line with your race, template, region, or class.
    No, you may not play a blackguard or antipaladin.

    (I should probably have just stopped here. I know I’m likely to just get players who want the above options.)

    Kitsuni, Weretigers,snakes, rats, Hy: May take Oriental Adventures and “Far East” Asian (China, Japan, Korea, Mongolia) classes. Complete series, Oriental adventures, Lot5r, or suggest a source book.

    Weretigers, snakes, rats, lizards: may take classes inspired by India. Shifu.

    Snakes. Jackals, crocodiles: may take Arabian, Egyptian, African classes. (Testament, Vistas)

    Wolves, Bears, alligators, wood elves, wild elves. May take Native American classes.
    Deadlands, Sidewinder. Other western source book.

    Psionics: snakes only.(Trust in me….Trust in meeee…Close your eeeeyes…)

    Oracles: Casters may multiclass into oracle after class level 3, with the understanding that in doing so they become the GM’s b….buddy so far as receiving ‘prophecy’ adventure guidance clues.

    You may make reasonable region requests.

    RELIGION: Werewolves tend to favor Druidic and Shamanistic type faiths. Those that worship gods tend towards gods of Nature, Hunting, Lunar or “Gypsy” types. Some will follow expys of Roman Catholicism /Anglican (classic monster movies). Eastern types might take a Shintoist slant or follow “Celestial Bureaucracy”. If you want to incorporate “the Weaver and the Wyrm” into your character’s beliefs you may.

    Expected posting frequency is daily.


    Edit: No, nymphs aren't "werecritters". Allowed fey must have a human, and an animal or hybrid form. Kitsuni are a good fit as it can pass for a human, but might be mistaken for a werewolf in hybrid form. It was the only race like that I could find.

    Edit 2.

    A) apparently it is kitsune with an e.
    B) the term 'shifter' is used above as shorthand for "thing like a werewolf". The shifter race from Ebberon will not be used. Before anyone asks, changlings and dopplegangers are also not available.
    C) except for the guy who alerted me it it's existence by making a character with one, the skinwalker race from PF is also not available.

    Edit 3:. Thanks for mentioning the shifter class. I already banned it, but I'll double ban it and put the 3.5 'Aspect of nature' alternate druid ability and the phb2 alternate wildshape on double secert double probation (or however the Animal House joke goes). I don't want players pulling the "I'm not were bear, I'm a Druid" Gambit too often.

    All base classes not listed as Allowed are not Available.

    Probably, lol. The quick start thread is for the same game right? It's just there to allow people the ability to make a quick character?

    Ok. Check out the werespider and aranea monster class links. The other options are just to play the 3.0, 3.5, or pf monster manual page.

    Do you want to be a bard too?play strings?

    Does not fit the theme unless we are a monster band (pun intended). Besides, aranea has sorcerer levels. Which source (3.5 or PF) I don't know. Need to check that with you.

    Well, at start of play you could be a "background singer" or the girl collecting tips. You could buy perform ranks or class into bard later.

    If you take the monster class template option you could start as a bard, but wouldn't have the full monster abilities until you've taken all of the monster class levels.

    The bard angle is an afterthought on he adventure design. The first two applicants asked about being Bard's and it struk me as beeling a cool cover story and situation. An all lycanthrope band.

    I wouldn't mind if you switch to bard casting instead of sorcerer, and change to "stacks with bard". It wouldn't improve bardic music or other bard stuff. If you want to stick with sorcerer, I wouldn't mind you using only the bard spell list.
    Bard casting isn't as powerful as sorcerer casting anyway.

    However we work it, the silk bit were web and spells can be used together would work with any spell the character could cast.

    The class presented here is for 3.5, but you can use it with pf . You would need to choose a spider themed bloodline, or use a spider God domain as a guide for spells.

    No, you see the bit about "bartering of souls"?

    PF Shaman (there are about 6 of them), oa shaman (modified), Spirit Shaman, and Druid would be the closest thing to a binder allowed.

    Which shifter are you thinking of?

    I am going to stick with sorcerer casting/spell list. As for bloodlines, only official/1st party material is the pestilence. There is vermin for 3rd party if you allow. On the other hand, domain has the vermin domain for spider theme. Do I add the spells to spells known like bloodline spells?

    Yes, we can work the domain that way.

    Yes, you can use the vermin bloodline. However, a lot of the abilities for that will overlap with things you already get from your race. It doesn't always hurt to double up on things though.

    What does aranea HD cover? Character level, combined class levels or only aranea class levels? If we have bloodlines or domain, does the features (bloodline arcana, bloodline spells, domain granted power) scales of character level?

    With these monster classes, the hit die works as a normal hit die. You gain feats and ability scores at the 'normal' rate based on total hit dice (total character level).

    The monster powers scale with total hit dice.

    The monster casting only stacks with the same class, like "+1 to existing class" like a prc. In this case sorcerer stack with the spider.

    The part about gaining a Dex point at every level is just for the 4 monster levels.

    This monster class is set up to either be the level one class, or to be added later. That is why it says "loses all other " at level 1.

    In your cases, it would be best if you made a level 1 human sorceress, set everything thing up according to pathfinder, then take the monster level for level 2. A human has no abilities to lose, and you already have the bonus feat.

    The monster class was built with the 3.5 sorcerer in mind, which only had a familiar to worry about, so we'll treat it the same way. All the sorc stuff will stack.

    And, since I was hungry, in line for too long, and got inspired, you get a familiar anyway. It is a cat that changes into a spider, and has spider venom on the bite in both forms. (If you want)

    I've been thinking that the preconstructed monsters follow the alignment in the entry, and that the player constructed ones could follow a different alignment if they choose. That the preconstructed ones are older, "old dogs" chaffing under their new restrictions and prehaps being resentful rivals of the "young pups", who perhaps fit better into the world now.

    What are you thinking of playing?

    Foxwere. The monster manual entry for their template says "always evil," but... they're a fox. If I play one, I'm going to try and play them like they're a fox that got the intelligence of a human. That won't necessarily be "nice," but that won't be evil, and especially not lawful evil.

    So no unattended poultry are safe?

    Is there a particular foxware template you wish to use?

    Just a quick note.
    A wolfwere is on page 406 of Tome of Horrors Revised. This is a 3.5 book. It is a safe bet that there is a similar entry in the Pathfinder version of the book.
    edit: oh, look at that....
    The THERIANTHROPE template starts on page 398. This looks like what the Pf template is based upon, with the ability groupings of A, B, and C. After the template are example builds for Ass, Fox, Jackal, Lion, Wolf, and Owl.

    edit: I have a pdf compilation of 3.0/3.5 monster books called The Great Monster Manual. It has 4088 pages. Sometimes it is difficult to tell which book the entries are from, as it just lifts the monster section of the source books.

    On page 1894 of TGMM, is the entry for wereserpents. The original page number is 69 and it is an FR book, probably Serpent Kingdoms.

    Were Crocodiles are on page 167 of (i think) Sandstorm, 1947 of TGMM.

    A different Jackalwere, and the Jackal Lord are around pg 107 of Fiend Folio.

    Bamboonwere is on page 200 of Necropolis.
    and yet another jackalwere on 220...owl and wolf are in the same book.

    The Ravenloft Denizens of Dread have a slew of Lycanthopes.
    Lowland and Mountain Loup Garou
    and Bat, Badger, Jaguar, Leopard, jackal, Ray and raven.
    The Paka, a female Catlike shapeshifter is in the same book.
    The same book has a wolfwere, and a greater wolfwere.

    As a fan of furries, shapeshifters, and transformations of all sorts, this seems like a very interesting game.

    Genderswaps, species swaps, and stories of change and chaos and disorder inspire me. I may be selfish and quite rapacious, but I am aware I gather power and wealth within an entropic universe—nothing lasts. The chance to experience life in different bodies is sexy and a gift.

    I’ll make something soon, after I finish some sheets for my other games.

    Aldric Godsglory
    Sheet
    Catfolk Ibex Lycanthrope
    Everything has a price, and there is a price for everything.

    Aldric is a rather unusual lycanthrope. The first is the lack of the whole raving the countryside consuming the flesh of the innocent. Rather he developed a rather hardheadiness that could rival a dwarfs. The second, is that most of the time lycanthropes are humans, or at least human looking enough, while he is a catfolk. And lastly, he has a sort of greed for riches, and doesn't shy away from collecting silver items, jewelery and trinkets, even if he doesn't wear them too often. Being born as a natural lycanthrope of a non-predatory species likely was a result of that party that his mother attended. They don't talk about it though.

    Rather instead Aldric thirsts over getting more treasures, and often fluxiates between his forms a little more freely than other lycans. Not only a weregoat, he's also a waregoat, and collects anything he can get his hooves and claws on to sell off. He's always working to turn a new profit, coming up with various schemes to get rich, and often talks about gold.
