Ok, watching Kingdom of Heaven for inspiration left more questions than answers:

1. Can a bastard inherit his father's (who doesn't have any legitimate heir left) title and land, and would other nobles recognize him as a noble heir?

2. Would bastard be able to be a king when he marry a heir of the throne without invoking a civil war for claim of the throne?

Only if the child is legitimized before witnesses, and even then the stain of being a bastard will follow them for all their days.

Hey /pfg/. My friends got me into playing RPGs a few months ago and I’ve been having fun as a player. Our group takes turns running short campaigns and since I have been new to the game they haven’t had me run a game yet since I was still learning the rules. I’ve read the rule book and game mastery book so I know how to run the game enough to handle most of mechanics we may run into but I’m absolutely shit at coming up with stories.

The thing is I really want to run a game one day but I have no idea how to start making an adventure. At first I was making maps but quickly realized I had no real story to bring the players there or I made too many rooms and don’t have enough material to keep the players interested in exploring. Aside from saying something like “Oh I’d like my players to fight an Aboleth” or some other monster, then I usually come up blank to how the players would end up there.

How do you guys go about making a campaign? What are some good ways to create stories or encounters that can keep the players entertained? I feel like such a shit player for not being able to think of anything to start a small campaign with.

How do I go about it?

I tend to start building a world. I make a few kingdoms, their relations, their gods... Then maybe I draw a map for it.

Depending on scope, I then build a big-bad, set up his plan and why he's doing it. Say, the Lich-King of an ancient empire who wants to reclaim his throne, ruling over the continent. He originally fell from power due to a combination of factors including a rebellion and sealing away the fucking apocalypse, so slaying him will unleash the end of the world.

For you, I'd start small. Early on, people don't expect a huge overarching narrative. So just concentrate on making a fun adventure. Set up a few conflict rooms with some sort of twist, instead of just "oh, here's 4 hobgoblins for you to fight," try something like, "Here are a group of hobgoblins shirking guard duty to play poker, on their first turn they shout an alarm and flip their table for cover, picking up their weapons." and after a bit, if they party is doing well, have a few more show up, or have the surviving ones fall back to another encounter.

Say that they're there to reclaim some items of value stolen by the hobgoblins from a shipment for the local lord, and it turns out to be something they wouldn't have thought worth their time, like a small animal or a single piece of jewelry, but they also find among the loot of the hobs something that could set up the Aboleth encounter for a later session.

The thing about GMing is that it is about 30% planning, 40% Improv, and 30% making things seem like you had planned them all along. Like say you mention a few specific items in the loot, well each of those could be literally nothing, or they could be the seeds of a future plot/sidequest hook.

>> No.55569349

Smite, while powerful, can only be used about 7 times a day at most, especially since there isn't a chain challenge equivalent, unless you count oath of the seeker, but you unfortunately need to be a dwarf for that one. This means that they only get their bonus to attack and damage against up to 7 targets a day. As much as I love paladins, I would much rather have a much smaller, but more consistent, bonus to hit and damage that's on constantly.

Honestly, Paladins are pretty well-rounded with good defences(save for touch AC), decent offensive when not smiting and one of the highest DPR in the game when smiting. Their only real weakness is the lack of versatility thanks to only 2 skillpoints per level and a spell-list that's not geared towards utility.

3.5 question here

So I recently asked my DM if I could play a kobold which was immediately shot down with "I'm not having pun-pun in my game, I'm not falling for that shit"

Which was understandable, I could see being skeptical about kobolds. But like my idea involved going one level spellthief, 5 levels sorcerer, then prestige into spellwarp sniper right.

For backstory it was just gonna be something like he wasn't a magically inclined kobold so he learned to steal others magic. But cause he's still a rogue-ish character he is sent out to patrol the outskirts of their kobold village but runs into a adventuring party, his group gets killed and he manages to run away but the group chases him into a swamp where they aim to kill him, but a swamp witch intervenes and saves him, and so he decides to serve the witch and calls her the kind lady. Makes a magic contract with her so she can siphon her magic into him and he learns to tap into his dragon blood to become a full sorcerer. Now being her servant or proxy familiar of sorts he goes out and acts as an inquisitor of sorts and aims to protect the swamp in which the witch lives and hunts down adventures that trespass the swamp or attempt to hurt the witch

That seems acceptable right?

>> No.55571907

Look, man, You're in the wrong thread. Most of us haven't even looked at a 3.5 book in the better part of a decade - I have no idea what a Spellwarp Sniper even is.

Try looking at empiricist. That plus a few things that move your other skills to being intelligence based (like the glorious Orator feat) and you will become skillmonkey supreme, with some buffing ability on the side courtesy of extracts with the infusion discovery.

Which is understandable
The last 2 groups I've played with in person over the last 3 years have been 3.5 groups though I am in a PF game on roll20 but it's just me and another player and the DM is a bit liberal so make things more fun

And I don't mind making a 3.5 thread but I'm pretty sure it would not be nearly as active as the pathfinder thread. As for me personally though my post was less about the classes I was planning on taking and getting on a opinion on if my character sounded like they would have been fine, because in 3.5 people get concerned about letting kobolds into party due to the min maxing bullshit they could like the fact they qualify for epic dragon feats at level 3 and will be able to cast 4 levels higher above their actual level (so a level 3 kobold sorc would have access to the spells of a 7th level sorc and so on) amongst other shit like pun pun. So I mean it's somewhat understandable why he would not want a kobold in the game simply after hearing I wanted a kobold

Half of Dragons 2 is a mess of memes built around trying to spell and sound like "ROAR" so surprise surprise when the characters themselves aren't too hot, I know we've ogled Rinka to death but how's that little rat doing in the campaign? Feels like she's squatting in a slot better filled by greater apps.

And then we get to RotJR, should we be talking about FotJR, or SotJR? I've got no problems with FotJR since that was never revealed to be a thing and has pleasantly fallen off the radar as the DM's personal fun-zone, but SotJR was the big leagues, and some of those choices were just baffling.

Because it never mentions when it changes or where/how, it never mentions duration or location.

All it says is "an individual may lose or gain time as he moves between such planes and any others"

Not 'around their own plane' just between planes with such variable time, or normal time planes.

Why should the accept it? Because the land is the king's by rights and if they aren't interest in being labeled public enemy number one by the kingdom they'll do what he says. Make him all smiles and congratulations, "it's good that you are willing to care for the people in the wretched corner of MY (emphasis there) realm" and all that, but once he hears them talk back or think twice about swearing fealty he should make it 100% clear it's not up for negotiation. Only time I can see it going some other way is if the king is already embattled on some other fronts.

>>55580407
That's not an easy question to answer. There's a lot of good characters who wouldn't have worked in an actual campaign because of how they'd clash with a party, or how they only had goals that would get resolved within the first book of an AP.

By the same token, a lot of the characters that mesh well with the campaign they're applying to are kind of shallow beyond those connections to the setting and story, but they are a good jumping off point for actual character development.

Not like any /pfg/-goer is actually going to develop their character. From what I've come to understand, /pfg/ players tend to be staunchly opposed to letting their characters grow. Players of evil PCs will tie themselves into knots finding reasons for their PC to stay evil, players of lawful PCs will excuse any action as being for the greater good of THE LAWWWWW, and characters with flaws are never, ever allowed to grow out of them. More commonly, such players will then turn on the rest of the group and accuse them of not providing them the "right" situations and interactions with which to start character development.

>> No.55580490

>>55580470
I can see that. Some characters simply can't grow though, an example being the aforementioned Talathel who was fundamentally broken from the very beginning and was written to be entirely irredeemable.

Not pathfinder, but I once ran a farming village. The main "quirk" was it was built on a river, with the local knight controlling grain prices in the region because he owned the only mill. There was a huge controversy, as one of the more powerful farmers was building a windmill thanks to a huge loan from the Merchants Guild. The Guild were assisting him because they believed the competition would lower the cost of flour and make things cheaper for them in the long term. The campaign didn't last long enough for me to do anything interesting with this however.

On a pathfinder-related note, what's the best non-magical class to run? I want to play a fighter-type with no magic but everyone says noncasters suck. Are titanmaulers any good? I was thinking of using the race-builder rules to make a half-giant (Large, bonuses to STR and CON) so I can use Huge weapons. Would this work?

Do you mean low magic, or no magic at all? Because either Bloodrager or Barbarian are probably your best bets.

That said, the people who say martial suck aren't wrong, but they also aren't giving you the full picture. Whiteroom casters just don't happen most of the time, and those that take the classes that allow it to happen generally don't play it to the hilt. In my current game, there's an alchemist, a wizard, a wizard/cleric with full casting in both due to shenanigans, and a bloodrager. Thus far, the bloodrager has cast a single spell in the entire game, and is by far the person that has contributed the most to our survival.

>> No.55581681

>>55581499
Everytime the player draws the sword they have to make a willpower test. Don't tell them what it's for. After the first failure, they begin to hear whispers/have freaky nightmares. After three failures they start to have waking hallucinations, to the point where they can't tell where reality ends and the hallucination begins. After five failures, the sword takes complete control. Send them a note saying they are now under the control of the sword and have to RP as such. They player's alignment changes to Lawful Evil. Don't tell the other players its happened until the sword player betrays them and goes on a killing spree when it would do the most harm.

Once they start having nightmares, the player might want to get rid of the sword by throwing it away, locking it up, etc. After getting rid of it, when the player character next wakes up after a night's sleep, they find the sword has returned to their side and all of their other weapons have been inexplicably shattered.

"thanks for repairing my property, if you swear to serve me I'll let you keep it and give you (minor) titles. If you don't I'll have to reclaim it and have someone who's actually loyal to me take it".

"castles" or rather things more appropriately known as "forts" "fortresses" "keeps" and "towers", were defensive structures designed to house military people at strategic locations, either to fall back to for defense, or so you could base out of them and be on guard for people violating your border. If someone just takes over your military installation you'll probably want it back, and you'll have enough bannerman to do so. If one distinguishes themselves you can even appoint them to hold it.

Remember the rules for rulers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rStL7niR7gs
They want loyal, capable followers. Loyal capable followers want land and wealth.

If the king is semi-weak they can either leverage the neighbors against the squatters, or if the fort isn't particularly valuable (anymore) he can have them swear a weaker oath ('soldiers must be trained / certain amount of money must be tithed, if [situation] arises you need to call banners and ride for me').
