I am interested assuming there is room or there will be room in the future. So this is a placeholder. Not sure if the character is my absolute favourite, but at least very close. Darth Bane, here I come.

Lawful evil, man. I doubt the Joker falls to that category.

I feel unloved. :(

Is that a rejection, or simply a failure to see my post?
“Hast thou not felt in forest gloom, as gloaming falls on dark-some dells, when comes a whisper, hum and hiss; savage growling sounds a-near, dazzling flashes around thee flicker, whirring waxes and fills thine ears: has thou not felt then grisly horrors that grip thee and hold thee?”

What about Pathfinder(3.P)?

Have an idea for a Green Dragon.

I have an idea but I wouldn't know how to get it up and running...

A raw, primal, wild manifester and powerful brawler.

I was thinking something along the lines of Totemist/Psion/Soul Manifester/Black Blood Cultist... Dunno.

Alternatively...

PsiRogue 5/Mountebank 3/Charlatan 5 as a grand con-master.

 :)

Well, I have some ideas for the first, but you'd like to run with the 2nd then be my guest.

If you're going totemist/soul manifester/black blood cultist then I have to direct you toward my grappling handbook.  It may not be the way you want to go, but how could I possibly not suggest it?  :)

Wilder sounds more "primal" then psion, personally.

About the first one... If we reflavour the Black Blood Cultist a bit to make it more synergic with the Wilder it could be doable (for example if we change the Rage requisite for Wild Surge).
What did you have in mind exactly?

final result : 6 slaughts vessels, 4 imperial frigates, 2 imperial cruisers destroyed. Haarlock sent into the warp. 0 losses. Flawless Victory.

Yay for all the interest!  Some responses:

I feel unloved. :(

Is that a rejection, or simply a failure to see my post?

Oops, sorry!  I didn't see that you had edited, and was trying to respond to people with less-developed character ideas.  :)  Dementist looks pretty cool -- almost like a binder who can only bind Zceryll, and takes wisdom damage.  Homebrew (if you haven't figured it out by now) is fine, so whichever way you want to build him.

I am interested assuming there is room or there will be room in the future. So this is a placeholder. Not sure if the character is my absolute favourite, but at least very close. Darth Bane, here I come.

I've always wanted a Sith Lord in this game... :D  I'm not sure where we're up to in terms of proposed party members (some of the people who posted early haven't responded now that I've clarified a little, so we'll have to see.  I'll collect a list shortly.

By the way, the Joker would be pretty awesome for the scenario... but he's the definition of unpredictable so I'm not sure these guys would hire him.

What about Pathfinder(3.P)?

Have an idea for a Green Dragon.

Pathfinder is no problem.  I'm not super familiar with it, but the mechanics are quite similar to 3.5 so it should be pretty easy.


About the first one... If we reflavour the Black Blood Cultist a bit to make it more synergic with the Wilder it could be doable (for example if we change the Rage requisite for Wild Surge).
What did you have in mind exactly?

My idea was exactly that, in fact.  Haha.  Do you wanna brew up something, or shall I?

I'm interrested in, if there is still room for a player.

Well, let's see -- in order of posting, we have:

dna1 (something TBD)
flay (M&M)
drhorrible (totem wilder black blood? or the ultimate con man?)
phaedrus (ghost stormlord)
talore?
mcpoyo?
sneer?
donquixote (dementist? or constructor?)
tshern (darth bane)
shadowviper (PF green dragon)
harald

So... I think that's too many people.  Normally I'd say the more the merrier (I have trouble saying no to people who want to play) and maybe even split into two parties, but with the... unique challenges presented by this game, I think it would be too much work.

At the moment I'm inclined to go with people who have more developed character concepts, though I don't want to penalize those who expressed early interest and were waiting for clarification, if they haven't logged on since.  I haven't really run into this problem yet -- how are these things usually handled?

Go ahead and take my name out of the running. Work schedule just changed enough that I am not going to be able to work up a character anytime soon.

No problem at all. Indeed, 9 potential players is quite enough, you don't need a tenth one.
Good luck everyone, have a good game ;).

It could be great if you could tweak the black blood cultist a little.

Believe.

OK, thanks guys!  Perhaps we shall meet again in a future PbP.  :)

Nine is still a little high, but it might be doable.  Let's see if anyone else has been scared away.

I'll take a look at it and get back to you shortly.

BTW, be warned that there may be maneuvering through cramped areas, so being too big could be a problem.

I thought 3.P was used to mean PF with access to 3.5 material? At least that's how I've been using it.

OK, take a gander at this.

If anyone has comments or critiques, they would be greatly appreciated.

I'll actually step out, because I'm getting into another game already, and because I'm in enough already. Spread the wealth! Have fun guys!

OK, then we're officially down to 8!

dna1 -- ?
tshern -- darth bane
drhorrible -- primal soul?
phaedrus -- psylock/burning mind?
donquixote -- dementist?
shadowviper -- PF green dragon?
sneer -- ?
talore -- ?

If some of the ?'s drop out and we get below 6, we can accept some alternates.

EDIT: Hopefully I will get the game forum up shortly, so we can move discussion over there.
