This will be a game of Iron Heroes, a gritty, low-magic d20 RPG.

Adventure Overview

The city of Thelport is experiencing terrible problems. Over the past few weeks the city’s sewers have been overflowing with seawater, and sewage has flooded the streets. The spread of disease has become a major problem, and the smell coming from the sewers is abominable. If this weren’t bad enough, all the water is beginning to transform the city into a swamp, causing buildings to sag as their foundations fall apart. The city’s officials are distressed, and people are calling on the local authorities to see that everything is fixed. It has been left to you to explore the ruins of the old wizards’ guild that appears to be the epicenter of the disturbances, and find out what is going on beneath the city.

Recruitment Overview

* I am looking for at least four players.

* We'll be playing through Discord's chat, with a bot handling the rolls and myself providing visual aids.

* I am usually online between the hours of 0400 to 1600 GMT, but I don't mind 24-hour cycles to let people post.

* The adventure we're playing through is based on a module, and is largely a straight dungeon crawl. If we get a good vibe going with the party and people are up for it, I am willing to make this a long-term game.

* If all of this interests you, please go ahead and make a post below! No need for a full character sheet, just give me a short character concept.

* For any other questions, also feel free to make a post, or reach me via PMs, or reach me at my Discord channel

* Recruitment will run until Wednesday, Feb-07-2018, 1500 GMT

Character Creation

1. Ability score generation: use the following array: 18, 16, 14, 14, 12, 10

2. Choose your Traits and Class, as normal. I may provide changes to classes that need help such as the Armiger or the Executioner, but I would not like to fill the page with these until I know what people would like to be playing.

3. I'd like to simplify skills: if your class has the skill group, then assume that you have the maximum number of ranks in all the skills in those groups, which would be 4 ranks at level 1. If your class does not have the skill group, then assume that you have half the maximum, which would be 2 ranks.

4. Choose feats. Reminder that in Iron Heroes, everyone starts with 2 feats standard, and they gain a new feat every even level.

quote:

For Mastery Feats, you still need the minimum Mastery in order to take it, but I will rule that you will automatically gain the Expanded Mastery effects without needing to select the feat again.

Example 1: an Armiger does not get Tactics Feat Mastery until level 3, so they cannot take the Combat Reflexes feat until level 3. If they do, then they gain the Mastery 1 benefit (extra opportunity attacks). Once the Armiger gets to level 5 and their Tactics Feat Mastery increases to 2, then they also automatically get the Mastery 2 benefit of Combat Reflexes (expend additional OAs to gain an attack bonus).

Example 2: an Armiger starts with Armor Feat Mastery of 2. They can immediately learn the Armor Mastery feat, and they immediately get both the Mastery 1 benefit (+1 to DR rolls for armor) and the Mastery 2 benefit (25% chance to negate critical hits). If they only learned the feat at level 10, then they'd immediately get all the benefits up to Mastery 6.

5. Take maximum hit points

6. Start with 125 GP to buy equipment with. Alternatively, use the starting package, and replace "5d4 GP" with a flat 12 GP

7. Try to not have the same first letter in your character names

I am thinking something along the lines of a big strong Berserker, with mighty thews who eventually will have weapons shattering off his bronzed skin. Not sure if I am going to try and work some Unarmed kind of thing, or go with Axes or something big.

Sounds nice, have to go through the book for exact builds and whatnot but would love to play basically a final fantasy Dragoon (lance weapon master with a focus on vaulting and jumping around).

In response to player feedback:

* Everyone gets to pick a single Knowledge skill that they will get max ranks in, among:

Arcana
Architecture
Dungeoneering
Geography
History
Local
Nature
Nobility and Royalty
Religion
The Planes

* The Skill Affinity general feat: instead of giving you +2 bonus to any two skills of your choice, it will instead allow you to choose two skills become max-ranked skills.

CHARACTER QUESTIONNAIRE
1. You’ve just returned to civilization after a long expedition into the wilds. Where in town do you go first and why?
Straight to whoever will buy the loot. Get (rid of) it while it's hot, because you can't trust anyone.
2. You’re sitting in a bar with a few friends when someone armed with a knife bursts in. What do you do?
Tell them to drop it or die in the loudest scariest voice possible. Think like a pet dog that changes its bark when a stranger is at the door.
3. An ogre guards a door that you need to get through. How do you deal with the ogre?
Tell it to go take a bathroom break far away for as much time as we need, or die.
4. You have uncovered information that reveals that your sworn enemy is in town. He’s staying at an inn in a rough area. What do you do?
Find out why they're around, then remake the social landscape to screw them over to our advantage. Plant rumors, scare off any of their friends who don't believe them, then whatever opportunity the enemy is chasing, steal it.
5. What’s one thing about other people that never fails to annoy you?
Psychological reactance. People getting resistant to being told what to do when they think it encroaches on their "freedom," such that they need to be tricked or cajoled into doing the smart thing instead of the dumb thing just to prove a "point."

I'll calculate derived stats later.

You ever do the chicken dance at a wake? That really bothers people.

Interested in being an Armiger. What kinds of improvements does the class need, since you mentioned it?

* Your DR only needs to absorb 5 damage to earn 1 armor token, instead of 10

* If an attack misses you, but the natural roll is less than your passive Defense bonus, then you also earn an armor token. For example, a level 3 Armiger has a defense bonus of +2, and could be using a light shield for another +2 defense bonus. If they are attacked, and the result is a miss, and the natural roll is a 1, 2, or 3, then they earn 1 armor token. Note that an Armiger has a defense bonus of +0 at level, so this rule does not apply right away unless you use a shield.

* You can begin earning an armor pool at level 1, and you start with this armor ability:

quote:

Will of Steel: If an opponent hits you, you can increase your damage reduction against that attack by 1 point per armor token spent. You can spend a number of tokens on this ability up to your armiger level.

* Replace Armored Trap with this:

quote:

Armored Trap: When an opponent hits you in melee, you can spend 2 armor tokens to force them to lose any remaining actions until the end of your turn, This includes additional attacks from a full attack action, as well as the ability to make attacks of opportunity. A Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 your armiger level + your Constitution modifier + additional tokens spent) negates this effect. You can spend up to 10 additional tokens to increase the DC of the save.

* Combat Magnet no longer needs 2 tokens to activate - you only need to spend the 1 token to force attacks to be redirected to you

* Replace Draining Defense with this:

quote:

Draining Defense: Spend 1 armor token when an opponent attacks you in melee. Your opponent must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 your armiger level + your Constitution modifier + additional tokens spent) or be fatigued for 2d4 rounds. You can spend up to 10 additional tokens to increase the DC of the save. A fatigued creature cannot run or charge, and suffers a -2 penalty to Strength and Dexterity. You cannot use this ability to impose a condition worse than Fatigued upon a creature.

* Indomitable Wall of Iron does not have a minimum token cost in order to activate (this is official errata, but I'm writing it here for visibility)

* Iron-Sheathed Counterattack no longed requires that the opponent fail to beat your DR - they only need to hit you before you can activate the ability.

* Bonus Armor Feats can be used to acquire any other feat instead.

You wouldn't expect much of a need for a blacksmith in a city with its own wizards guild, but here we are. Magical assistance and enchantments cost a lot of gold. It's far easier to find someone who can put in a little elbow grease and get the job done at a fraction of the cost. Corrina's father learned the trade from his father, and so on for who knows how long. A sister and two brothers worked alongside her, though as the eldest and, let's face it, the largest of them all, Corrina was the one who worked the bellows for the forge, stoking the fires so her father could hammer out steel for anything a customer might need. Horseshoes, nails, fastenings and such were the most common, but the were the occasional commissions for city guard equipment. A notched blade in need of reforging or hammering out a buckled breastplate. Corrina watched and learned at his elbow. Joshua Benalish had no compunctions about passing his trade on to a daughter. She was the one most interested in the work, after all.

As she grew into the trade, Corrina began to work on projects for herself, too. A few small things here and there, but there came a time when she realized that she felt as if she couldn't much help the guard if she didn't know what it was like to wear the armor for herself. It took time and materials, which she could only scrape together after the real work was completed, but she soon began to fashion her own to wear. Content with her work, but feeling as if it was incomplete, it took another few months to round up enough to make a shield to go with it and a weapon to wield.

It wasn't until only this week that the family heard the call for aid in regard to the underground mystery. Between her familiarity with the gear she forged and the informal training Corrina had with with the off-duty guards, her father agreed, although a little reluctantly, to let her lend assistance to the city that's been so good to them.

A change to Berserkers, per discussion with Ryuujin:

* The Berserker also gains 5 Fury tokens whenever an enemy is dropped to 0 or fewer hit points in their presence, not just allies.
* The Berserker gains 1 Fury token whenever they successfully hit an enemy

I'm also acknowledging character sheets from Ryuujin and Nephzinho.

For my own reference:

Opportunity attacks are triggered if the character moves more than 25% of their speed, rounded down.

For 6 squares movement, this is if the target moves more than 1 square
For 8 squares movement, this is if the target moves more than 2 squares

The group is able to scavenge the chitinous plates from the armored rat into a [Rodent Reinforcement Stitching]. If you use this item, use the maximum value for your DR rolls for the rest of the encounter. You can use this item in reaction to a hit that's about to land.

The [Glass Punch Dagger] will shatter as soon as you use it, but it will guarantee that all your attacks within this turn will hit (and any critical hits will confirm).

The chest you found contains:

* A Bone Club, that gives you +2 to attack rolls when fighting undead
* A potion of paralyzing liquid - causes 1 round of paralysis to anyone who drinks or comes in contact with the liquid

Vicissitude
Jan 26, 2004

You ever do the chicken dance at a wake? That really bothers people.

Updated my stats for level 2. Only my Athletics skill group increased, but so did my BAB and BDB. Took Axe Mastery and Juggernaut for my feats.

Updated my stats for level 2. HP doubled to 30. Same on the Athletics skill group. Well my changes really look like Vicissitude's except I only got one feat so no Juggernaut for me.

EDIT: Well changed my mind. Instead of going Berserker 2 I grabbed a level of Weapon Master. HP nearly doubled to 28. Athletics skill group went up. Dropped Axe Master for Armor Master instead as that is an option by taking Weapon Master. Will probably grab Axe Master at the next chance unless my Armor Mastery is 2 by that point.

Kanaan's HP and base attack bonus have increased. All of that sitting back at reach has improved his Combat Reflexes, giving +3 opportunity attacks per round (which can be expended against a single target for +2 attack per extra attack).

Are you in or are you out?

Retrained my traits into perform instead of intimidate. I'll still be making browbeat checks and stuff but things might have a snowball's chance in hell of resisting them now.

Only material changes to Kanaan on this level are more HP so I hopefully don't spend an entire adventure near death, and I can expend my multiple AOO's on a single enemy to ensure I get the hit. Looking at spending gold, may just top up my javelins and javelins.
