The Golden Path
Welcome to “The Golden Path!”
This game is currently in the planning stages. It so far has a GM (me) and three players. As near as I can tell, we’re all from in or near Knoxville, TN. The arrow on the campaign locator actually points to my location (Pigeon Forge, TN), but the game itself takes place on-line. Or will, once we actually get started.
As I said, we’re still planning, but the following is some of our current thinking:
1) Pathfinder RPG: My players prefer this system, so I’ve agreed to use it, even though I don’t actually know it very well. I’ve had the books for a while, but they’re HUGE . . . Still, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I’ve decided on purchased beginning stats, using the “Epic Fantasy” level (25 beginning points).
2) Group Manifesto: I will be posting this here just as soon as I get a response from all three players regarding it.
3) House Rules: So far, there are only two -
3a) Gestalt Characters – We will be using this concept, since the party is composed of only three PCs and the players want a “high-powered” game. Per Point #11 of the soon-to-be-posted Manifesto, this means that most NPCs will also be gestalt characters, so truly merry times will be had by all.
3b) Vitality/Lifeblood – Taken largely from the d20 Traveller rules, but with additional features from the Vitality/Wound optional rule from 2.5e Unearthed Arcana. In essence, any hit can potentially kill you, so you’d best put on your iron longjohns.
That’s all I’ve got, for now. Got to get back to work (the work that I get paid to do, that is).
