OOC stuff goes here for the Low-End players.

Character creation deadline is now marked to the next Friday from here.

Transferring my question over: Dragonfire Inspiration is definitively banned, right?

Well, if you pick just dragonfire inspiration and no other bardic music buffers, I'll allow it.


Oslecamo, is there still room in this? I would like to put my hand up if there is :flutter
I believe there may be room for one more yes, in particular with the Faster Paced rules.

Is it okay if I ignore the "Arcane Casters only" part of Craft: Alchemy? It'll make the traps Shatterscale makes a lot more potent.
Yes.  I always believed that limitation to be really silly anyway.

I'm ready to make a character whenever.
Then make it happen. :p

Normally binding requires drawing a sign, how do you want to refluff that?

I would supose you have some kind of control panel implanted in your body just under your skin, or some exterior command device, and you need to physically press the right buttons on it to load up the right personality.

Awesome! Now I just need to figure out how to make Dithermines and Explosive Packs on the cheap.

Oslecamo, what did you think of my explanation for the binder refluffing?  I'll repost it here (and add to it/ actually start on the mechanics of making the character tonight/this weekend).

... does that mean I have to choose between Lingering Song and Dragonfire Inspiration?  :-\

Right, crafting question.

How much would a mecha-sized flask of acid cost?

Looks pretty good. Feel free to come up with original names for legendary pilots and the program, I'll gladly add them to the setting mythos.

Some sugestions tough:
-Lena, young princess-pilot halfling of Satera, restored her Orakian kingdom on the Landen System trough her graceful skill on the frontlines.
-Rulakir, a bloodthirsty but highly skilled orc mecha mercenary of unknown origin. His own family was killed long ago in long forgoten wars, and his hatred has kept him alive for centuries before falling near the end of the Devastation War.

Much more than what a 1st level character could afford.

Hm.

This reminds me: what is the starting gold for a first level character? >_>;

I like your suggestions and will go with them.  I'll flesh out a little bit more about the "how binders work in this setting" part and then you can integrate it into the world however you see fit.

Does the goverment have any name except The Government?

You're a bard right? Check the PHB then.

I'm... really bad at finding the info. Yes, I failed to find starting gold in the PHB.  :blush


On the plus side, I forgot that Bardic Music effects lasted for another five rounds after you stop even without Lingering Song.  :lmao

Bard is 4d4x10 average 100gp.

It wouldn't be just Lingering Song you're giving up for DFI. Masterwork Instruments, Inspirational Boost, Medal of Valor (in a level or so when you can afford it) and, depending on Oslecamo's interpretation, Extra Music which will be important at 1st lv when you only have 1 use normally. I'd go with the above instead of DFI unless you have a concept that requires being dragony.

I expect they'd fall under similar limitations, though. So... basically looking at things on a case-by-case basis.

I think Spirits are usable outside of the ship, though? I'll have other options from that. I think.

There's a line between "not high op" and "utterly nerf bards." DFI and Words of Creation are the sources of absurd bonuses. Without those, I would think stacking the more minor bonuses would be fine. You could get a similar effect by taking the Leader feat 3 or 4 times.

It's Oslecamo's call, though.

I actually get Leader as a bonus feat. I'm not sure if this is Leadership (in which case, I guess it's the ship crew or... something. Bit confused) or something I'm unaware of. :???

Look in the Pilot Feats thread in the SRW subforum.

Leader gives you an aura of command with a 5ft/mu radius. Allies within that radius get a +1 command bonus to attacks and, I think, AC. If you take it additional times the bonus and radius goes up by 1 and 5ft/mu.

In order to use Ships Full of Hope (the ship captain school) maneuvers on your allies, they must be within your leader aura.

Ah.

So my unique school's maneuvers require me to be right next to my allies in something that shouldn't be right at the front of battle, or spend lots and lots of feats. Hmm.

Only the ones that directly affect your allies. There's quite a few SFoH maneuvers that affect your battleship instead.
