    Gargon is basically complete. Just the fluff at the end of the sheet is incomplete, but that will probably be easier to fill in once the character starts to develop.

    By RAW, you have to stop playing with the guy.

    What I had in mind was a shield and spear warblade. But with these rolls not even a fighter is possible - high str and con, dex and int 13 would have been required.

    Have fun, I'm out!

    Speaking of spear and shield, I'm noticing that it's basically impossible to have literally the defining equipment set of the era. I tried making a hoplite setup and the closest I can get is a buckler and longspear. As far as I can tell there's no way to wield a reach spear one handed and a heavy shield in the other.

    Oh, yeah, I had faintly considered that problem. Kind of ruins a lot of it.

    Ok, how about this; longspears are baby bastard swords. They can be used one handed as a martial weapon, or two handed as a simple weapon. Because otherwise you can't have spear formations of random peasants with like one level in warrior.

    Which is sad.

    And the free reroll gets me...
    (4d6b3)[12]

    edit: not too bad, if I do say so myself. While I am very interested in the setting, I do have some questions.

    Other than wish and resurrection-style spells, are there any spells that don't exist due to the current development level of the setting?

    Would Draken's Evolutionist class be allowed in this setting? If so, would it have to be flavored a certain way?


    Do clerics of philosophies exist, or are all clerics of a diety?

    I look forward to these answers before I start writing up a character.

    Not explicitly any more kind of spells that don't exist. Of course, if somebody decides to be cheesy (ie selecting ice assassin or some ****) I might justify telling them to get bent by saying the spell doesn't exist.

    Evolutionist is okay, big fan of it actually, just bear in mind that psionics don't exist so any of the psi mutations that grant "psi like abilities" won't have any powers to be based off of.

    I'm a little split on the cleric thing. While I like giving people customization freedom, I also sort of feel as if philosophy clerics are just... wrong, flavor wise. It just seems a little wack;

    "Who do you worship?"

    "Bahamut, the champion of the weak and the source of all justice!"

    "Cool. I worship doing whatever I want."

    I could be convinced, though. I think it honestly probably fits in setting.

    Alright, a few more specific questions.

    1) Are there any available races that give a bonus to charisma?
    2) Are any LA 0 templates allowed, or is that too cheesy?
    3) Can the evolutionist be flavored as something innate, perhaps a protean race that grows and changes with time?
    4) If no to the previous question, can I get literacy at base since I had to study and learn to become an evolutionist?
    5) Are any of the evolutionist feats that grant new mutations banned?
    6) While I no longer think I'm going to be a cleric, I do personally like clerics of ideologies, and having those ideologies spread and, for lack of a better term, dogmafy until either the initial cleric apotheoses or a new being is formed as a representative of the pinnacle of collected beliefs. If you don't like this take, that's perfectly understandable, not everyone does.

    1) I mean, you could play a lesser aasimar? Spellscale? I dunno, there aren't really a lot of charisma races out there. I haven't really banned any races in particular. Throw me something and it'll probably be fine.
    2) It depends. I've seen la 0 templates that are balanced and provide somewhat fair tradeoffs for their bonuses, but I've also seen some real cheddar. You'd have to ask for a particular one.
    3) I hesitate to say that there are an entire race that is just evolutionists. Seems like they'd be a more major setting component. It could certainly be something innate, though. People are born as sorcerers and what have you with no seeming cause sometimes, I see no reason for evolutionists to be any different.
    4) Probably not. Even if it was something you acquired, I don't see it being a book learning type of learning. That's pretty much going to just be wizards and totally-not-wizard derivative classes.
    5) I mean, I didn't initially decide so, but the fact that you even feel the need to ask makes me slightly nervous. Is there anything you think I might have good reason to ban?
    6) I suppose. I guess it's just more about how clerics tend to be bound by precise tenants as a result of their faith; if somebody was like, a quasi-buddhist cleric (Following specific path and tenants to be a good person, find peace, etc etc, not actually following a god), I could see that. But it's just so broad I'd probably be very selective about what I'd allow there.

But it's just so broad I'd probably be very selective about what I'd allow there.
    1&2) Of course whatever I think would have to be run by you first, I just didn't want to look into it if there were flat-out banns you had in mind.
    3&4) That's fair on a whole race of evolutionists not existing, but I think I will go with the innate version, so my 4th question is moot.
    5) I just wasn't sure if outsider mutator or elemental mutator would be off-theme. That said, ancient mutator I could see being banned, as well as construct mutator, though for very different reasons. Ancient mutator uses the far realms and stuff like that as a power source and uses vile feats, feels very off-theme to me. Construct mutator just because I wasn't sure if society was advanced enough for such things to exist.
    6) That makes sense.

    I'm thinking of going with a spellscale, seems to fit with the whole "dragons creating dragonborn" thing. I'm thinking I would be a distant relative of a good dragonborn, the powers being diluted but not withdrawn altogether. Is there an Athens-like city-state I could be from (emphasis on philosophy, personal betterment, that sort of thing)?

    Huh, I didn’t even think to ask about home brew. Probably just as well; the Warlock rework that I like the most actually doesn’t really fit the character (too much emphasis on inherent magic, none of the specializations really feel right). Still, if anyone’s interested, here.

    When should we expect recruitment to close?

    On five, yeah, that's a fair assumption to make. Outsider and elementals are fine. Ancient mutator isn't explicitly banned, but since vile feats are from BOVD, which I'm basically handling like radioactive material, it's unlikely to actually be that good. Constructs do exist, they're just not particularly common. Wizards and such will still plop them down in private sanctums and so on.

    Yeah, there's Athus, which is pretty much just baby Athens.

    So you’ve clarified that clerics not following specific Gods are OK with strong guiding rules, can the same be said of paladins who fight first for a cause and secondly for any divine entity? Or should I just try and pick a god that would likely be ready to sponsor thier cause?

    Totally okay for paladins. In fact, majority of paladins are paladins for their cause rather than a deity. The class is all about their oath and not much about a deity.

    Spoiler: Atticus
    Show
    Atticus was born to a member of the citizen assumably of the city of Athus, a burgeoning center for art, trade, and philosophy. Atticus' family had always had close ties to a local metallic dragon (a worshiper of Bahamut), despite the recent shift in attitudes towards dragons in the past century or so. As a result of this close relationship, Atticus was born different. At first it just manifested as a beautiful pattern of golden scales replacing normal human skin and the low-light vision of the elves, but soon it was clear that Atticus was something even more different.
    His scales hardened, his charms grew, his skills expanded. No one was sure why this was the case, but Atticus, a very learned individual, was able to discern what has happening to him. He was an evolutionist.

    While it was expected of him to stay in Athus, Atticus had broader ambitions. He wanted to see what was left of the world before the Empire swallowed it all up, and so left Athus to find his own way in the world.


    I would have had this up last night, but my internet died. Let me know if I got anything wrong regarding the setting and need to change some things around!

    Probably going to keep it open a little while longer. We have more than enough people, but not all of them are complete enough, fluff-wise, to judge.

    Ordinarily, I'd just pick the people who did fill that, but that still leaves me below the amount of people I want.

    So I'll give time, probably message those guys because I feel like they may have forgotten the game exists.
