Golden Cradle Campaign
We’ve decided to use the Priority System to generate characters. Priority selection determines starting money (not for magic items and a feat or talent for wealth will grant an extra 5,000 GP-such as Wealthy family, Noble Born, or Mercantile background), Attributes, Level, Magic Items, and any special advantages or exotic races.
Characters can have 2 talents (Pathfinder advanced player’s guide) as well as the standard feats. No flaws, but the feat extra talents can be taken as can the regional feats from Forgotten Realms or other 3.5 sources (Just run them past me if not from FR).
The benefactor will provide transport and housing for the group including luxury lifestyle while residing in Raven’s Bluff. Outside the city a stipend will be provided in civilized areas or supplies when in less tame lands. Characters will have the option to ride on the benefactors ships, carriages, etc. or to use their own if they have them.
The current scenario is looking like the group will travel by ship to the wizard island and then go on a conventional dungeon delve to find a missing noble . . . .
Cohort Attributes: The standard point methods make it very difficult to make an effective ranger, druid, or paladin which I think should be viable options so I’ll give 30 points on a variant of the PRD system. (A cohort could start with 14 in every attribute before racial and level modifier.) Non-cohort followers can be made with the heroic array out of the book.
Hit points will be maximum for class and level.
Skills will be normal for Pathfinder.
I am open to alternative classes and races; no more than a 3 level adjustment should be taken as the character should have some real experience. If taking a 3.5 race talk to me (they should get a plus 2 attribute modifier to a stat with no bonus or penalty already that fits with the racial description).
Guns will be treated as simple weapons and can be taken from the early firearms list in Pathfinder.
Downtime rules can be used for businesses, houses, and other investments. It can be assumed the party will have a week of downtime between quests and all leveling up will happen during those rest periods (when leveling up the rest period will be assumed to include training and research to cover the new abilities).
