Mauril’s Journal, Entry 10

   Posted by: Mauril    in Campaign Logs, Fantasy, Pathfinder, RPG

I have been busy over the last months traveling for the Prince. I have spent much of the winter in Lindur gathering information on the people, culture and their success against Manath. The Prince plans to compile this information and sell it to the western kingdoms. War is profitable. Death is coin. Since the fates didn’t seem to want to take me, I thought I might as well find some sort of profit in all this misfortune.

Mauril’s Journal, Entry 9

   Posted by: Mauril    in Campaign Logs, Fantasy, Pathfinder, RPG

It has been months since I have had the courage to take up my quill and put my thoughts to words.  My mind roils between rage and despair.  The mother that I once loved has become nothing but hate to me.  Her delusion and insanity has burned itself into my mind’s eye; sleeping or awake, I see nothing but her sobs and screams.  It has drained my soul.  If it were not for Crebain and Daidra, I am sure my soul would have already been won over to my tormentor.  It is only the wit of my feathered friend and the kind understanding of my lover that have kept my hold on this last shred of sanity.

A Foray into Design

   Posted by: Mauril    in Fantasy, Pathfinder, RPG, RPG Design

For quite some time I have had a desire to produce my own gaming products.  I continually conceptualize and homebrew creatures, site feats, abilities, spells and classes for whichever system I happen to be using at the time.  As I have been playing Pathfinder for the last year and expect to do so for the next year or more, I have spent some time working on developing a few base classes for the system.

My most recent (and most complete) homebrew attempt is a base class known as the Prelate.  It started as a slight tweak and modification of the 3.5 Heroes of Horror class called the Archivist.  Playing one in our current Pathfinder game has shown me that, with the proper overhaul, it could fit into the setting and system very well.  So I began chopping, altering, changing and adding to the original class until it bore only a superficial relation to the original class.  I feel that my alterations have done a lot to balance the class from being one of the most (if not the most) powerful classes in the 3.5 system to something properly balanced around the level of the Pathfinder Wizard.

My creation is available for review over at the Pathfinder Database.  In case you are unaware of the Pathfinder Database, it is “a collection of fan-created submissions for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.”  My submission is known as the Prelate and is available for review and critique.  Let me know what you think.
