Sableen sighed as another patron called out into the main room, and disturbed her concentration through inquiring as to the trivial matters of the house's credit line. Interruptions in her evening reading were common down here as she had discovered over the past few weeks, but she still couldn't bring herself to ascend to her room and spend the night alone. She liked the noise, the low hub-bub of the patrons and staff as they went about their nightly tasks. It was never quiet when you were a child, she thought to herself. A smile crossed her lips, that she knew no-one could see in this secluded corner. But then you never had books to read and lost secrets to find.

The smile widened further, and she snapped the book shut jolting the nearby barmaid upright out of the slightly lecherous arms of one of the other patrons. "Ah Miss, another beer please." The ale had been sour and lacking in flavour since she had arrived but it was clean, and better than the water at the moment. She took a swig when it arrived and chastised herself for drinking to quickly. She had learnt over the years that as much was found through local knowledge as was in hidden texts, and she needed her senses sharp to see if this was the night that the hostelry would yield its concealed insight.

How are you doing Krensky? Any progress on the start yet? Totally understand if life is getting in the way.

Ok then here's my updated gear list for approval - in a rough order of descending priority

•Moderate Reinforced Padded armour (38s),
•Drake-made Bladed Scarf (60s),
•Bedroll (5s)
•Canteen (5s)
•Rations x 2 (10s)
•Goggles (20s)
•Backpack (10s)
•Paper sheaf and ink (7s)
•Compass  and lanyard (41s) - perhaps this can later be "upgraded" to the Wayfinder
•Silk Rope (20s)

Some of that's a bit of an ask I know!

With regards as to why Sableen's in Falcons Hollow, what you suggested makes sense. She's out to prove herself, following up on any rumours of local legends, secrets, lost ruins etc and hence why she has made her way here. She's also still being evaluated and graded by the Society so she's out to prove herself more than ever.

@Krensky - I just wanted to check the gear list I posted was ok, does it need any GM tweaks and alterations?

Well I don't know about everyone else, but I'm still up for a game if y'all are?

You forgot your Path step from Beneficent Universe.
I didn't I just forgot to mention it. I've taken the Path of Secrets with gives me a +5 bonus to Bluff checks, which was included.

Also, you may want to consider the Drake crafted upgrade for your scarf.
Yeah I did, but it puts the total higher than the scarf and pouch individually, which is more than I can afford at the start. I'm happy to wait until later, or have the GM handwave the difference  Wink

You're going to make me write up a Pathfinder Rep track... Aren't you? Wink

You seem to have a grasp on the setting, but just to reiterate, the Pathfinder Society is part National Geographic Society, part Freemasonry, and part Men in Black. They travel the world, seeking forgotten knowledge, magic, and artifacts, and then lock them away from the world.

Yeah I figured it was like that, and due to Sableen slightly favoured upbringing, she has a rather niave view of the Society believeing that there actions are always "good" where others might view it as interfering.

Oh.. Sivanah? Really? You had to pick one of the minor deities with weird domains and favored weapon, didn't you? Sheesh. Ok, give me a bit. Also, don't forget that the Aligned Spell feat is a thing.

Lol, Krensky I'm always that kinda player, I like finding the odds things in the corners of worlds/settings and running with them. Sivanah seemed a fit to the concept and is ok considering her background as well.

Ok so here's the full version

EDIT: Ran out of time this morning, Ill come back and finish the spells at a later stage

Ok so here's the clunky bits!

Ok so I'm going to play Sableen as an (almost) human mage. I'll make life easy and stick to the 3 14's and 3 12's grid as well - so for Mage I'm going to stick all my 14's in the brainy slots of INT, WIS, and CHA. It's not necessary to do this, but for once it fits my concept.

Specilities and Talents - well Charismatic, Striking and Svelte all could be possibles, as could Adept, Mystic, Sorcerer, and Swindler. To fit the background of someone with a little otherworldy background, and to ensure she has those really mob-stopping looks, I'm going for Striking Sorcerer. So this gives me:-

STR - 12
DEX - 12
CON - 10 (12 -2[Striking])
WIS - 14
INT - 14
CHA - 16 (12 +2[Striking])

Proficiences - well being a Mage I only get 2! 2 measley profs, well what do I spend them on - I'm going to cop out here and say I'm waiting for Krensky to tell me what my god's ritual weapon is so I can at least get the right proficiency group! After that I'll either pick up a trick or widen my repertoire with another weapon group.

Being a Mage I get (8 + Int mod) x 4 skills to start, so (8+2) x 4 is 40! I should also point out that I have the paired skill benefit from Sorcerer, so whenever I put a skill point in Spellcasting (which being a Mage should be every level) I also gain a point in Intimidate - I'm using this to represent her bold presence as much as anything.

Class Skills
Bluff - 4
Crafting
Impress - 4
Intimidate - 4
Investigate - 4
Medicine
Notice - 4
Prestidigitation - 4
Resolve - 2
Ride
Search - 2
Sense Motive - 4
Spellcasting - 4
Origin Skills
Sneak - 4
Blend - 4

Hopefully the above should represent her forceful looks and personality, her spellcasting nature as well as her sneaky "at one with the shadows" nature. Speaking of which...

Feats
Sorcerer gives me 1 Species feat so I'm going with Elemental Heritage: Darkness to reflect her father being a Fetchling
Neither my talent nor starting level in class give me anything else, however everyone gets an extra feat at level 1, so I'm going to give Sableen the Spellcasting Feat - Hidden Spells to make it so she can cast spell almost undetected.

I'm going to stop there to give Krensky a chance to post the info I want to Sivanah (and approve my general character concept), and thus I can make my choices for my profs/interests/alignments etc.

Ok so like Ludo i'll post my character concept (now totally different from what I originally thought) and then run through the mechanics/thought process.

Sableen Loca was born in the great city of Absalom, one of the myriad of inhabitants that call the jewel of the inner sea home. Born of a ill-advised tryst between a visiting fetchling from Shadow Absalom and her mother whom was a servant in the quarters he was staying in, Sableen's life was always going to be tough. Though her father paid a small stipend each month, her mother struggled for several years to raise the young child and work to support them. As she grew, so did her most striking feature - her looks. None would call her beautiful, some might say pretty but all would be caught by her enrapturing face and piercing dark eyes. This quality seemed to keep those around her at ease, and somehow kept her out of trouble - which was something this small precocious child seemed to have a knack for finding. Others in the house would seemingly catch something at the corner of their eye only to hear her gleeful laugh disappearing down the corridor with ne'er a trace of the young girl to be seen.

Once she was old enough, she started to earn a living alongside her mother, but alas this did not stop her adventures. Several times only her quick thinking, her ability to "disappear" and her striking visage kept her and her mother still in employ. At the age of 16, an influential scholar visited the Master's house - a man of import whose entourage alone was almost as big as their household. Unable to contain her curiosity, she concealed herself and snuck into the room where the Master and his guest were dining. Moving as the servants cleared the table, she slipped into the darkened corner of the room and held herself still, a trick that had worked hundreds of times before. It was to her great surprise when the guest turned to the corner in which she was hiding and declared her "trick of the light over, and to come forth". The guest questioned her briefly, and then asked if she knew where her true talents lay. Sableen stayed quiet and meek as her mother had taught her - but this only seemed to please the guest further.

It is now 6 years on from then, and after the guest revealed himself as not only a venture-captain but mage-scholar as well, Sableen's life has changed immeasurably. The guest, a Drandle Dreng, took her from her home and her mother, schooled her with both a formal education and tutelage in the arcane arts asking only in return that she serve him and the Pathfinder Society as a seeker of the unknown and one of the Society's conduits of knowledge. Her lineage has given her an edge in certain forms of magic, and in combination with her looks Sableen has pushed her youthful arts of infiltration to the fore. Although her true focus is knowledge in all its forms (as the Society wants) Sableen has offered service to Sivanah, trusting the goddess to use her to draw back the veil on the mysteries she seeks.

(A bit wordy, and perhaps a little trite - but I'm ok with that! Krensky, can you put up the FC info for Sivanah whenever you get a mo)

Still here, character being written as we speak. I should have it up and ready for your approval within the next few hours!

Dammit Ludo... I was just about to ask the same thing regarding Saurians, I do have a hankering for that race! Happy to switch to something else though, most probably human if I go the sneaky route.

So:
Saurian Soldier or Martial Artist
Human Assassin or Rogue
... are my inital thoughts!
It's all good.  I haven't settled on anything yet as I have zero experience with the setting.

Me either, I just love the lizards!

Also I presume that the tech level is Reason, or is it still Feudal with a smattering of Reason tech?

I'll probably play a man-on-a-mission silver tongued rogue type, or a wandering mercenary who weapon of choice is a bit different.

Krensky - I'd be up for joining in as a relatively experienced FC player if you're still up for GMing. Totally understand if you don't have the time though.

Best news all week, month and year! I've already sent the news onto numerous people I've converted to the FC cause to allow them to celebrate as well.

Well done Gents, well done.
