Quick start fart rules
Alright chumps, it's time to create your crappy character. Follow the steps below and then either PM or email your sheet to me. Remember, the setting is standard fantasy. That means you should be cyborgs with jet packs and h4xx0r skillz.

    Character creation in 3.5 easy steps:
  1. Make lore
  2. Pick swag and 2.5 pick spells/abilities
  3. pick skills

For the lore/backstory you can write as much or as little as you want, just make sure there's a physical description and maybe some clue as to why your character has the swag, abilities, and skillz they do. One common element I'm going to force on you: Your characters have all ended up in the starting location via a seafaring ship's voyage across continents. Think about their reasons for undertaking this voyage.

Abilities and Equipment:
You can start with whatever mundane adventuring supplies and small items you want. If you're not sure what to get, hit up the PRD and any other splats you know for ideas. You'll start in an inhabited area, so you don't have to go overboard on rations or whatever. If you feel like a true socialist you can start with nothing for all I care. My primary concern is your "big" (important) abilities and items.

    Big stuff includes:
  • Weapons
  • Armor
  • Enchanted Weapons and Armor
  • Other Magical Swag (Artifacts)
  • Companions, Pets, Steeds
  • Spells
  • Extraordinary abilities

Try not to have a lot of these unless your character's theme justifies it. Here are a couple of really bad examples I made up for the lulz.
"I am knife spam gril so I have a hundred knives"
"I am the king of heroes so I have enough swords"
"I am a Garen/Mogul Khan expy so I have spin attack"
"I am the puppet master, that's why I get a squad of living mannequins"
If you say something like "I'm armor man so I have 3 suits of plate armor" I'll cringe but I might still accept it. Don't be afraid to go bananas with this, because the worst thing I can say is "no". Actually that's far from the worst thing I could say but whatever.

Skillz
Pick from 1 to 5 skills from the list that your character is good at, and maybe one or two things that they're really good at. Use the phrases "good at" and "really good at" on your sheet to denote which is which, because there are totally no numerical bonuses involved. None whatsoever.
Everyone is assumed to have the "common"/pleb language so don't worry about that. Stuff like Disguise, sleight of hand and ventriloquism can be represented through abilities. I think. Speak out if you disagree so I can smite you. Just kidding.

    Skills List: Parentheses indicate separate subgroups of a category.
  • Weapon Training (Polearms, blades, daggers/knives, Axes, Blunt/Mace, Bows, Firearms, Siege, Shields, Throwing, Improvised etc.)
  • Armor Training (Mail, Plate, Exotic)
  • Knowledge (flora, fauna, geography, chemicals, history, religion/occult, local area, engineering, magic, mathematics, nobility, etc.)
  • Athletics (Swimming, Climbing, Balancing, etc.)
  • Social Perception
  • Stealth
  • Language (Draconian, Goblinoid, Troll, Fish, etc.)
  • Riding/Pilot Training (Horses, dogs, bears, ostriches, etc.)
  • First Aid
  • Profession (Doctor, Craftsman, Singer/Musician)
  • Survival - Climate dependent (Desert, Tundra, Tropical forest)

If you want to do a certain character build/theme but the list doesn't have skills that support it, just reply to this thread with your suggestions.

Character Sheet: Lil' Prince Ali
Spoiler:

Character: Lil' Prince Ali
Description: Persian Lil’ Jon.



Lore:
      All men fear the Great Swaggafid Kings of the desert lands. They are a hard and warlike people, who throw their newborn children into the desert to toughen them. These tyrants conquered far beyond their sandy home, and now demand tribute from vast swaths of land. The current King, realizing that the Empire had become too large to manage from the Swaggafid Oasis cities, began conquering through marriage. To continue gaining territory, he married his first and second sons to the princesses of the neighboring Ruby and Sapphire Kingdoms. Basking in his diplomatic success, the King set his eyes on the Opulent Emerald Kingdom, far to the west. He had dreamt of ruling the Emerald Kingdom since the days of his own father, so he summoned his last son, Lil’ Prince Ali to do the job.
      Lil’ Prince Ali proved a little less cooperative than his brothers. He arrived to the capital city drunk and covered in bitches, and then proceeded to throw up during the welcoming ceremony. To make things worse, Lil’ Prince Ali declared that he only had eyes for the baddest nina around: Princess Jasminiquah, heiress to the Kingdom of Strippers. The King was furious, since the Kingdom of Strippers had a GDP of approximately negative five thousand gold pieces, due to monetary damages caused by STDs. The Emerald Kingdom seemed to slip out from his grasp.
      However, the King had a plan. He knew that his third son was a rebellious piece of powerofpoo that would only agree to something if he lost a bet. He also knew that the debauched Lil’ Prince Ali loved to F/UC powerofpoo up. The King thus penned a royal decree: wagering that his son could not slay one hundred enemy princes, steal their treasures, and sex their bitches, within a year. If Ali failed, he would dutifully marry the Princess of the Emerald Kingdom. But, if Ali succeeded, he could marry Princess Jasminiqua and inherit the legendary Swaggafid Royal Harem.
      Lil’ Prince Ali, prideful as ever, accepted the wager in front of the entire kingdom. He then proceeded to get drunk off his ass and fall face first into the sandy dunes. Although the King thought Lil’ Prince Ali was an obnoxious F/UC, he still loved his son. So, he retrieved Ali from the dunes, gave him a sword and armor, and provided him with a modest retinue of servants and creature comforts for the road ahead…

“…summoned that day were 100 chanting men with bells and swords, a royal brass band, 15 dancing girls, 40 fakirs, cooks and bakers, and various slaves, servants and flunkies that care for his: 60 elephants, 75 golden camels, 53 purple peacocks, 95 white persian monkeys, numerous llamas, bears and lions, and various birds that warble on key.”

      Thus, Lil’ Prince Ali set off with his Spectacular Coterie, in search of booty to kick, booty to steal, and booty to F/UC.



Adventuring Gear:
2 Chains
1 Crowbar
1 Grappling Hook
1 Hammer
1 Ram, Portable
1 Noble’s Outfit

BIG STUFF:
Weapons – Zulfiqar: A forked scimitar that supposedly belonged to the First King of the Swaggafid Dynasty. It’s very resistant to rust, but strange, intricate patterns form on its surface with the death of each king. The patterns have been growing recently.

Enchanted Weapons and Armor – Shining Swagg: (Like the image except the brown pieces are made of solid gold.) Causes all units in the area to involuntarily turn to look at Lil’ Prince Ali the first time they see him wearing [Shining Swagg]. All units are awestruck for up to 5 seconds, as Lil’ Prince Ali flaunts his golden swagger. Repeated exposure to [Shining Swagg] significantly reduces the duration of awestruck.

Other Magical Swag (Artifacts) - Crunk Ain't Dead: According to tradition, all Swaggafid royalty must proclaim their greatness with a necklace. Lil’ Prince Ali decided to pimp his necklace the F/UC out. It sparkles with the might of a thousand diamonds, and can intimidate light-sensitive creatures, given at least one ambient light source.
3 Flasks of Crunk Juice: When consumed, it allows Lil’ Prince Ali to Turn Up, granting him additional strength, mobility, and intimidation.

Companions, Pets, Steeds - Spectacular Coterie:
As a farewell gift, Lil’ Prince Ali’s father provided him with a magnificent retinue of soldiers, servants, and beasts. This Spectacular Coterie was born and raised specifically for Prince Ali, and are “lousy with loyalty” to him. They constantly sing his praises, and are obnoxious as F/UC wherever they go.
Unfortunately, all but a few were lost to the storm. At the start of his adventure, [Spectacular Coterie] contains: 1 white Persian monkey, 1 chanting man, 1 dancing girl, 1 cook, 1 flunky, 3 llamas, and 53 purple peacocks.
All units have hit points, but cannot do damage. All units are active until knocked unconscious. When knocked unconscious, units will recover within 24 hours. All units can be kidnapped, and animals can wander away from the party if they are not watched.
As long as any [Spectacular Coterie] is active, it provides a positioning bonus. For example, if a [Spectacular Coterie] is located behind an enemy, any ally attacking the enemy gets a backstab bonus. [Spectacular Coterie] can intimidate sound sensitive creatures. [Spectacular Coterie] can be stacked on top of each other to escape a pit trap. Lil’ Prince Ali can mount any [Spectacular Coterie] (including humans) to achieve a speed bonus or rest while traveling.

Extraordinary abilities - Get Low:
As is his birthright, Lil' Prince Ali can generate enough Crunk Power within a 10m radius to force a strong man (or equivalent creature) to genuflect by reciting his family's ancient words "Bararum Dum Dum". He can concentrate [Get Low] to inflict blunt damage in a specific part of the body. He can also spread out the effect to hinder the movement of multiple enemies.

Skillz
• Weapon Training (Polearms, blades, daggers/knives, Axes, Blunt/Mace, Bows, Firearms, Siege, Shields, Throwing, Improvised etc.) – Good (Blades, Improvised)
• Athletics (Swimming, Climbing, Balance, etc.) Good (Climbing, Balance)
• Social Perception - Very Good
• Stealth - VERY BAD, extra penalty (Lil’ Prince Ali does not approve of sneaking around like a little nina. He is forced to announce his presence at all times. Extra penalty if any [Spectacular Coterie] is active.)
• Language (Draconian, Goblinoid, Troll, Fish, etc.) – (All languages, limited). As a well-traveled Swaggafid prince, Ali has been exposed to many cultures and languages. However, due to his personality, he has only bothered to learn three frequently used phrases: “F/UC You” “OKAYYY” and “Turn Down for What”.
• Riding/Pilot Training (Horses, dogs, bears, ostriches, etc.) – Good (Horses and [Spectacular Coterie])
• Survival - Climate dependent (Desert, Tundra, Tropical forest) - Very Good (Desert)

Richard was a mild-mannered physicist working at the LHC before a cheerful experiment gone wrong dragged him into this world. As a child, he was well-adjusted. His family was supportive and always supported his dreams. They gave him the finest care and made sure he received the best education money could buy (and their money could buy quite an education). After graduate school, where he worked on extensive applications of theoretical wormhole particle physics he earned a prestigious post-doc working at the LHC. During one of his experiments he accidentally stumbled into the particle beam and was thrown headlong into an alternate dimension.

Suddenly he found himself endowed with new abilities. By stretching his mind he can form portals anchored on solid surfaces, linking any two points within 500m. Before he was blasted through he managed to rip out a key piece of technology, which he has since modified to create a particle beam gun. This gun, to the best of his understanding, takes atoms from the atmosphere, condenses them, and then blasts the excited particles at enemies, causing devastation in its wake.

He is skilled in Physics and all the associated Mathematics. He has become trained in the use of his particle gun. In addition he is quite adept at horse riding and social perception, leftover skills from his whimsical and amazing childhood.

Denied, everybody knows the LHC was faked the same way they faked the moon landing. Sorry Dick.

Ah, but Richard is from a strange parallel universe where all conspiracy theories turn out to be false, of course.

Parallel universes are a lie made up by the elite to keep the poor masses content with the false possibility that they could ever break free of their oppression.
