So this weekend's pathfinder we are playing Rise of the Runelords. As part of the story line the players had already done the Thistle Top story line, I conviced the players that Thistle Top should be ours, it's a great place, to own. So now we are going to put a bar/Tavern in plus a Ranger's Guard point, it's only 2 hours by foot from Sandpoint. Less if you have a War Horse called Shadow Mist! Yes, that's right I have the War horse cause no one else wanted it! First time ever I have been able to have a transport creature at below level 5 in along time. And it's a fully trained War horse.... Seriously though it's been interesting, we made enough money from the Thistle Top clearing that I could afford starting work on my specialist Glaive. It's made from Cold Iron and Dark Wood, it's going to be great! Building my own magical weapon, go me!
The Best bit was the arguement about weather we were allowed to murder the Evil mage, in the end we took her to sandpoint to and jailed her. Netural Good is so much fun as a player, and strange to see what other players do about my character seeing as most of them are Chaotic Good.
Being the game nerd I have done a lot of research into what I want do with my character, mostly I like to have a plan based on what I think the character wants to do or be. I so impressed one of my other players that he asked me to help out planning his Ranger's feats so he could be a hitpoint monster. He is playing an awesome Half Orc Ranger that can take so much damage it's not funny. I am enjoying the research on his character. Also OMG the Half Orc's have some really cool feats.
I suppose I love my roleplay and my research in equal bits, I try not to optimise a charcter for perfect, just for what I want him to be doing. Thus I took a polearm master which most min maxers would say don't do. I have worked my way towards making him a repostioning Fighter. Cause that's what I want him for. I don't want to be the hitpoint machine the Ranger wants to be, and I don't want to be the DPS either, I want him to be the tactical Character, without being the "Tactician" So I have my plan and I am sticking to it.
Well as you can see alot of this weekends game was down time, apart from the we are taking Thistle top as our own and the Evil Mage issue. Thus the bit about the glaive and having a war horse, plus sorting out money and items. Did I mention that Thistle top had these cool skull lanterns that don't go out? I was the first player to go dibs on one of those, and then my back up weapon is a magical bastard sword we picked up off the evil cleric we had to kill.
Anyways not very interesting as a whole but we do start the next story arc for the rune lords next game.
