    Gauging interest - Pathfinder PbP - Way of the Wicked (An Evil Campaign)

    Hey that's pretty close to my sorcerer's background. You're a good writer Wayne and you have lots of cool ideas.

    Ranger: You were a military scout, an outrider who went ahead to mark the trails and find hidden dangers. You stumbled across a superior military force of humanoids while on patrol. Things out of nightmares. Orcs, trolls, and worse. You were little more than a boy, a new recruit fresh off the farm... and you fled. You threw away your uniform and sword, and found a farm like the one where you grew up, with a kind old couple that let you call them Mom and Dad, and you settled into a fantasy life for almost two years. Later, you heard that everyone in your troop died in the ambush. They never stop looking for deserters, though, and finally they found you. They burned Mom and Dad's cottage to the ground for aiding and abetting a Fugitive of The Crown, and hauled your through the streets in chains while urchins threw crap on you, the Coward of Cowpers Creek. The trial was swift, and now you're in prison.

    Cleric: Your village priest seduced half the children in your little town, but you were his favorite, his little flower. You endured it, because of the favors it brought to your poor downtrodden family. He healed your little brothers broken leg, which otherwise would have made him a useless cripple. He cured your mother's lung disease. And all you had to do was give up yourself to him on the altar of Mitra. You endured it all. You led other children to him, and helped him seduce them as well. Until you actually came to love him for it. You went to the big city to take orders, so you could be close to him forever. But when you came home, he'd found a new favorite, your younger brother. In a mad rage you killed him and your brother. They found you praying at the altar, robes soaked in their blood. You were dragged away and charged with murder most foul.

    Bard: You were a talented child, but talent alone doesn't allow you to attend the most prestigious music schools. That takes a patron. Your beautiful charwoman mother whored herself out for you, seducing a powerful judge who then acted as your patron to the music college as a favor to her. Suddenly the funds ceased coming and you were locked out of the school. Coming home, you found that the judge had a new favorite and your mother had hanged herself in shame. You snuck in, charmed the guards with your song, and then strangled the old bastard with your lute strings. You spat in the face of his colleague who dared to call it 'murder'.

    Sorcerer: You are the true child of Baron Tam. You even have the Tam Gift, the magical powers that set you above the common rabble. But your twin brother was born first, by just minutes. He got the gifts that would have come to you, if you'd been a boy: the education, the training, his father's pride. And it's all wasted on him. He's a moron, barely capable of dressing himself without a maid and a butler. You got a savage intelligence and a strong personality, but you were shuffled off to sewing circles and the bower. Finally it was all too much. Your jealousy and hatred had twisted the Gift in you long ago, and finally you killed him with it, broiled him alive in his bed like a suckling pig. Murder? Hah, it was a mercy killing.
    These are all really cool ideas and have helped. I think I'm going to go with the prostitute and have her be a Bard. I have to iron out the details though. Everytime I try and work on her on the computer, my headache comes back and I think it's from reading the screen, so I'm having a hard time focusing. Hope you can all bear with me a bit longer and I'll try to get her finished ASAP. I'll bring what I can print out to the laundromat with me Tuesday and work on her there. Right now I'm going to see if the library system has the Pathfinder Core book, so I can take it out and use that, but I doubt it.

    REMEMBER! The Pathfinder SRD websites d20pfsrd.com and Paizo.com/srd can provide you everything you need for character creation. The latter is the "official" site but I actually have a preference for the former.

    The only problem with d20pfsrd.com is that it mixes everything together. The Paizo PRD has a section solely for Core stuff.
    If you participate in my Daily Trivia thread, do not look for the answer elsewhere and post it.

    I know, but like I said, I keep getting a headache when I try to read stuff online for more than a couple of minutes.

    Yes, you did. I misconstrued your point. Good luck!

    How are you guys getting pictures into your posts? I'm an ADMIN and I'm denied access to the page! lol

    Edit... So... do you guys think, if I posted a picture you could ignore, say, a pair of wings? ():-)

    AG, would it be helpful if someone helped make your character? Jon is willing, he says it would be pretty easy for him to whip something up

    We could pretend they were an accessory, like you wear when you have your picture taken at the fair. Or they're your fetish!
