Souls of the dead hear my calling. The Reaper Bishop calls for your service to return to the living. In the darkness of the Hallows a force lurks to steal away the souls that yet to find home and we cannot allow this. Do you desire undeath? or perhaps immortality? did you leave something unfinished? If you want a chance to reclaim the life that was once yours then answer my call and become of my Dark Divers. A soul plunged into the darkness by death to deliver those who cower from my gaze into my hand.

The Dark Diver Chronicles takes place on the world of Antares sometime after Nessian Conflict however the surface state matters little. This game focus' on the Hallows; a series of massive underground tunnels, environments and settlements that those above have never laid eyes on. The game itself would be neutral leaning in intent, as it would have decisions to be made that not all good aligned groups could make. Examples of creatures encountered would be a variety of subterranean creatures, outsiders, and undead. The game itself would take ideally a moderate serious tone and the aspects of light and darkness within the Hollows would be highlighted.

The game would be exploration driven with combat and some diplomatic elements. This just being an interest check and all to see if I put in the time needed to bring this to life.

Game Day: TBD
Players: 3-6

Creation rules
Point buy: 25
Pathfinder only this time
level 5
Character Wealth by level + Starting item
Background of min 1 paragraph
Reason why the character would want to return to life

Sample House Rules

Leadership Role
If at any time it appears the party is split between 2 or more paths and no progress is made the GM may request a Leadership Role. Each player who was suggesting a path roles a d20 and adds their charisma modifier to it. The highest total is assumed to have won the argument.

Skills
Classes (Other then Wizard and Witch) that gain 2 skill points per level gain 4 instead.

Diplomacy table and such shall likely be ignored. The Diplomacy skill is still of use – we are just not using the hostile/unfriendly/neutral/friendly/helpful table and its results will also be based on how you roleplay it.

Hit Points
HP is done with 1st level max + 4
Hp per dice
1d6 = 4
1d8 = 5
1d10 = 6
1d12 = 8

Feats
Vital Strike (and its descendant feats) may be used on Charge or Spring Attack actions. It CANNOT be used in any conjunction with Pounce or Spirited Charge.

Weapon Finesse is a free feat.

Martial Weapon Proficiency grants you access to 1 Weapon Group of Martial Weapons (As per Fighter Weapon Groups).

Items
Worn outfits do not weigh anything unless they give a mechanical benefit.

Guns and Gunpowder do not exist on Antares

Double weapons are treated as two 2H weapons, with both ends receiving 1-1/2x Str mod to damage.

Spells
Teleport and Greater Teleport take 10 minutes to cast and can only go to locations you’ve been before.

Classes

Druid: Druidic as a language does not exist.

Clarification: All the Shaman and regional druids do NOT gain Wildshape at level 4. They gain it at level 6 with the rules they apply as per normal.

Animal Companions do gain sentience upon gaining Int 3. They become Magical Beasts at this time and are no longer Animal Companions.

Magus’ and Wizards’ (And all similar classes) who take levels in a prestige class that grant continued spell progression learn 1 new spell per level.

Fighter: Fighter’s who take the Tactician archtype gain 6 skill points per level.

Sorcerer: Any ability that creates Claws (Such as the Draconic Bloodline ability) does not have a maximum per day in uses.

Arcane Archer can be pursued by any race.

Misc
Soft Cover is given its usual treatment. It is ignored unless there is an ability that uses it

If you Bull rush an enemy into a wall he will be knocked prone

Summoner class is prohibited, Gunslingers are prohibited

I would like to play a Cleric if another, more experienced player wants to. Either that or a Paladin. I haven't done a sword and board in a long time.


Question, Can you clarify "Starting item".

Here is my cleric: http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.p ... tid=864107

Will come up with a background soon.

Based on a majority for the timezone being available. Looking like those who have expressed interest on forum and among other methods are leaning towards a Friday with two of the five only able to make it on that time slot and two others preferring it.

I'm assuming the Hallows are like the Underdark in the forgotten realms?

Request a list of approved and common PC races who live in the Hallows.

Sorry to hear that Nosnomis

@Gardan player characters come from above with no experience and limited knowledge of the Hollows. Races are the normal ones with approval on any unusuals.
