Warforged Psychic Warrior. Made in Homeland then wandered down south, open to character ties with other characters from down that way.

,,

I have my character made, just working on the background, seeing if anyone wants to have ties. Haven't submitted yet, but I'm good to go whenever.

,,

Question: What's the GM account that we need to submit to once we do, Kaoru or Sandman XI?

Atticus Kontos, Human Swordsage/Monk. Sold into slavery as a child and raised as a gladiator. He is cagey about how he gained his freedom.

I am still hammering out the mechanics and background of the character but I am also open to PC ties.

Oh, this is Jordan by the way

You'll need to submit them to me. I was on the wrong name when I posted last night.

Ok folks, quick question.

One of the ideas that I have is a "minionmancer", being a psion focused on telepathy and eventually prestige classing into one that increases the mindbending (charm, dominate, etc) capabilities of the character.

,,

I am aware that in some cases characters (and in other cases players) are disturbed by the implications of psychic subversion so I'm just testing the waters here.

Would anyone have a problem with such a character?

For me, so long as you don't use it on the PC's, I'd be pretty much fine with that. Depending on how you use it (everybody you meet, vs. just the people we fight) IC that is.

As a player I have no Major issue with psychic subversion. it's not really any different from magical subversion such as charm person/charm monster. it also depend on how slavery in general is viewed in the game world.

Historically speaking slavery in one shape or another was pretty prevalent. The Romans, the Greeks the Egyptians, The Scandinavians all had some form of slavery. So if slavery and the social subjugation of people exists then enforcing it magically and psionically is only par for the course. from an IC standpoint I think it largely falls to the individual characters how they feel about it. A society that condones slavery probably wouldn't be all that concerned how one controls his property (depending on that societies rules for the treatment of slaves. but if slavery or the concept of slavery is repugnant in Homeland societies then magically/psionically controlling people would probably be seen as a horrible invasion.

Of course if you want to really get into it, different city-states may have different views and law about slavery... Am I overthinking this?

That's another question.

Are we dealing with "realistic" ancient societies, where slaves was just one of those things people had if they were wealthy or are we dealing with the "Modern" Fantasy world where Democracy and Freedom and the like are practiced by the "Good Guys" and "Dictatorship" and "Slavery" are practiced by the "Bad Guys"?

I changed the first post to the correct account.

Thank you :),,

That's another question.

The former, though not really realistic, more like 'fantastic' with all these gods walking around a magic flying everywhere :P That said, don't be a horrible person. I know ancient heroes tended to be total assholes sometimes, but they were the heroes for a reason. they were better than the 'bad guys'. So play up your ancient societies nontaboos if you wish, but remember you are a player in a modern world ;)

Factotem, human, currently debating between male or female PC....Any votes one way or another? Either way, the character will have mixed Homeland/Southern (Egyptian) upbringing.

,,

I'm totally fine with the Psionic minionmancer so long as you're not a dick to the PCs (or more specifically, aren't so without hashing it out with the player of a targeted PC beforehand).

Been a while since I've played anything 3.5, but the books are still on my shelf! I'll tell you now that given the resources you listed my idea is a Shadowcaster/Wizard on the way to the Noctumancer prestige class from Tome of Magic. This concept specializes in unraveling/redirecting enemy spells more or less, but like Red Mage (or Mystic Theurge, they were fooling no one) it won't take off till level 7 or 8.

,, ,,

I'd like to be a Shade, but they have a level adjustment of +4, and 3.5 doesn't have specific rules for one of those Fetchling creatures they have in pathfinder. I could probably just cobble it together by applying the Dark Creature template to Human if that's ok, it certainly wouldn't be any more powerful than a typical tiefling or aasimar (seeing as how they both have level adjust +1). Of course this all assumes that your setting has a Plane of Shadow for me to be from...

Hm, good point. Since Hades runs the darkness connection then it makes sense that getting slapped with that template is probably his doing.

...

,,

Actually, I think I'll bow out of this one. I can already see this creating an association problem with Scion for me, since the first thing I thought was that Hades isn't really a darkness god, Erebus and Nyx are.

The last thing I wanted to do was discourage someone from playing. I'm sure you and Sand can work something out... maybe you're a non-Homeland native (thus dark is some god other than Hades)?

Also, Tartarus would make a wonderful "shadow/death" plane, imo. :D

,,

True enough, though we'd have to ascribe to Tarterus the usual properties of the transitive plane of Shadow in order for Shadow Magic as presented in the Tome of Magic to work. Tarterus is used interchangeably to describe the prison of the titans as well as Erebus's Realm anyway.

,, ,,

From the look of the setting notes we're using the mythological world as opposed to the usual fantastical world, so Erebus and/or Nyx could probably be what generated Shadow Magic in the first place. Frankly, they are never depicted as evil or rapacious in ANY myths I've read (being Primordials as opposed to Titans) they just start up the universe and then kick back somewhere. If we were using Forgotten Realms the concept of Shadow Magic would be added by Shar (a being that essentially combines the roles of Nyx & Erebus) so the idea has precedent.

,,

Alright I'm interested again...I just send a charsheet to SandmanXI right?

Okay here is an interesting question. The players guide says that wizards get all 0 level spells in their spellbooks at first level. Does that include 0 level spells in supplemental material like the Spell Companion or just the Player's guide? I can see it going either way but figured I'd ask.

Nope. I got all 40. Wis & Cha both get a -2, and Con at +2.

,,

I guess that depends on whether you put the -2 on the front or the back though... all the generators I've seen put it at the back end, so that Wis 16 actually got bought up to Wis 18 and then brought down.

Not necessarily. I've had round-robin pneumonia and bronchitis and wasn't hospitalized. You do generally want to get antibiotics, but after that it's mostly just resting and being miserable at home.
