1  Products / Fantasy Craft / Stewardship of an Estate on: December 17, 2014, 12:07:33 PM
For FC, how would you handle a PC running an estate? Would you just chalk it up to Downtime? Is there a particular Skill you would use or just reduce it to a Knowledge check followed by a Wisdom check?

I'm curious because of the things I admit to stealing for my home game is from the ASOIAF RPG (aka the GoT RPG) put out by Green Ronin is their House Creation system for creating a Noble House and its history. I was looking for advice on is how to switch over the Stewardship aspect of their Status Skill. 

Other aspects of the Status Skill include Breeding (a blend of knowledge of customs, history & procedures w/court etiquette), Reputation (equal to Noble Renown), and Tournament (basically a knowledge check on Tournament history like what knights were there and who won the joust in the last two decades). In short sum, a couple of Knowledge checks and Noble Renown easily handle the other aspects of the Status Skill but the Stewardship one eludes me as it is used for administrating, growing, and managing your lands.

Any thoughts?

@Desertpuma,
The medicine focus also leads nicely into Paladin (particularly working well with the requirements and core ability, which means a 1-level dip is also fine... And one of these days I'd really like to flesh out my Renaissance-man Assassin 1 / Keeper 1 / [something 1] / [something 1] / Paladin idea. The being bad-to-terrible at hitting standards but good at dealing with specials part of said build could be RP'ed as being something of a reluctant combatant; you generally don't want to brutalise hordes of inferior combatants, but are still grimly resolved to take down their leaders.

I would personally do it for 2 levels just to get the Trade Secrets bump and then go from there through Explorer 1 and Priest 1 to round it out. Sure it makes the Paladin start at Level 5 but you could also bypass Explorer and go directly to Priest for 4th then Paladin at 5th.

On the above question about a non-Crafting focused Keeper, look at making the Keeper into either Medicine machine or a Tactical genius and see how things unfold. He may not be a great overall combatant but he'd be a great strategist to have on your side with +8 ranks in his Tactics Skill at 2nd level. Tack on some basic combat, covert, skill, and terrain feats to make him the guy that helps create the overpowering number surge for an ambush. Try building him using the Ranger as a Specialty so you have Battlefield Trickery right off.

He's also a great medic with autostabilize pretty much by 2nd level and definitely by 3rd. Start with the Physician Specialty for the BSM. Then give him Bandage as a 1st level feat so he can go without a doctor's bag if necessary then take on the Mobility feat chain so he can get to people regardless the traffic in between. Take about a lifesaver.

I have to admit that I've enjoyed reading through the PF conversions done here on the site. Based on Antilles experience, it sounds like it is better when stuck on it to follow the plot and approximate instead of going for a literal transcription.

And me?  Political problems.  Apparently, the Unborn and the princess, and the king got wind, got mad.. and now I'm going with the Gnome as a "Political Advisor". 

I suddenly had the flash of a memory of Data on TNG saying "I am fully functional".  Perhaps that is the REAL reason the princess created him/it.

There was an interesting article on Reason.com about how Connecticut and Arizona handle their different mass shootings. Following the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut lawmakers sought to restrict and control guns as much as possible when they should have gone after mental health as Koala pointed out above. Conversely, Arizona responded to the Gabrielle Giffords shooting (which would not made any news outside of Arizona if she was not a member of Congress) by making it easier for the average citizen to Open Carry.

I have 16 of the specialties that were on the database saved for use in my games. I can post them if it's wanted. Plus a mess of feats as well.

I would greatly appreciate it, Coyote. Please do so or PM them to me.

I had contributed some Specialties that I wanted to get copies of since my hard drive crashed after I had posted them.

Speaking of undead hackers, Rache Bartmoss is an asshole.

That is all.

So THAT'S who breached Sony and leaked "Annie" online!

If I were to guess, Rache would be partial to the original film version in 1982.

LMAO ... Almost makes you wish Alt never died and she was in your bed telling you she needs to sleep next to you.


Alt's not dead. She's just not physical. Where she is after the Fourth Corporate War depends on if you follow the CyberGen, Starblade, or 203X timeline.

Personally I always found it interesting that the political group controlling the USSA was named Gaians and it's leader looks a lot like an middle aged Alt.

Very true ... and to think she was named after Supermodel Carol Alt .. in fact, she's a dead ringer for her

(Sometimes I kill myself ....)

What about making it last as 1 week/Caster Level then it reverts at the rate of 1 hr/Caster Level?
