Character Sheet Edit

How to create a wikia page for your character sheet:

  1. Start a Page - Make sure you are logged in. (This helps with ads anyways) Use the "Contribute" drop down box to "Add a Page" with the name "Character Name (Player Name). The names of your character and Myth-Weavers User Name would be inserted in the appropriate places. The 'Contribute' button is in the top right corner of the page. Use the 'Create a Blank Page' option when it is presented.
  2. Format the Page - When the page comes up, find the drop-down menu for "Source Editor" and copy/paste the following into the text area. Once saved, this places the Character Sheet Template on your page.
    {{Template:Character_Sheet}}
  3. Build the Character - Go back in and 'Edit' the page. MAKE SURE TO ALWAYS USE "SOURCE" MODE for editing. Replace ?'s with valid information. Delete any data that is not needed. Make sure to keep the spaces at the beginning of lines to maintain proper formatting. Add a picture to the wikia in the same way you made a new page. On the character sheet you have to reference the file name on the wikia.
  4. Saving the Sheet - If you are still working, save the page, and add "In Progress/Character" as your category at the bottom. If you are done, save the page, and add "Awaiting Approval" as your category at the bottom.
  5. Getting Approved - Post a link to your character in the New Character Submissions Thread at Myth-Weavers and judges can begin the review and approval process.
  6. Mobile Devices - To get a better viewing experience on mobile browsers, you have to find the browser settings and request to view the desktop site. There is also an option at the bottom of each page on the wikia to improve how our content appears on mobile devices.

Ability Scores Edit

Living Pathfinder uses the Purchase system (page 15-16 Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook) to determine ability scores. Use 20 points to purchase abilities but remember no score can drop below 7 nor go above 18 before racial adjustments. In addition, starting age does not modify ability scores negatively or positively.

You can use online calculators found here and here.

Feats Edit

Characters may select feats from the following:

Please refer to Allowed Sources and Approved Feats for other specifically approved feats.

The following feats are explicitly excluded from play in Living Pathfinder.

  • All Item Creation feats
  • Leadership and related Feats (and Traits)
  • Cooperative Crafting
  • Antagonize (from Ultimate Magic)
  • All feats related to Spellblights (UM)
  • All feats related to Words of Power (UM)
  • Grit feats or feats related to Firearms (from Ultimate Combat)

Classes that gain item creation feats as bonus feats will have them replaced with a different option. See the Class section for details.

Traits Edit

Characters may select two traits from Ultimate Campaign and from the additional Approved Traits.
(Each must be from a different category).

The following traits are explicitly excluded from play in Living Pathfinder.

  • All 'Campaign' traits
  • Hedge Magician
  • Natural Born Leader

Equipment Edit

Please refer to Allowed Sources for additional items allowed.

  • First level characters of any class begin with 150 gold.
  • Characters also start with one free outfit that costs 10 gold or less.
  • Clothing worn does not count against weight for encumbrance.
  • Masterwork and magic items (scrolls, potions, etc.) may be purchased with starting monies without rolling for it in the Mystic Pearl.

Magic Items Edit

A list of magic items that are not in the approved sources, but have been specifically voted upon to be included.

Finishing Details Edit

Alignment

  • Only non-evil alignments are allowed to PCs. Additionally, player vs. player actions (one PC attacking another) will not be tolerated.

Hit Points

  • First level characters begin with maximum hit points for their hit die. Players must also make a notation on their character sheet specifying the method they will use to generate hit points when advancing a level. The options are Roll, using an Online Dice Roller and providing a link to the roll so that a judge can check it, or Maximum minus 2. Only one option may be selected and it cannot be changed later.
  • Animal companions and eidolons get hit points the same as PCs. Max for the first hit die, and then Max -2 or rolled. This is higher than normal RAW, but provides for greater survivability of the companion.

Animal Companion Tricks:

  • The animal companion starts with the maximum number of tricks for its intelligence including its bonus tricks. Bonus tricks earned at leveling are learned immediately. Time was considered spent in training as it's master approached leveling.

Languages

  • Characters may select from their list of racially permitted languages or from Living Pathfinder's list of approved languages if it has been added to their list of languages. In addition to racial languages and Common (aka Low Landellian or Venzan), each character originating from outside Venza gets one free regional language to speak (see approved languages for full details on regional languages).

Character Background

  • We CANNOT use the setting of Golarion in our games. We are creating our own setting and gods here on this wiki and in the LPF Forums. Please do not write your character history with references to Golarion nations, gods, or any other Golarion specific setting detail. If you do, you will only have to remove it and that will slow down the process of character approval and delay your ability to join an adventure.
  • Character backgrounds are by default 'Closed' meaning that they are protected from meddling by DMs. If you would like your character background to be open to DMs to use when planning adventures, add the 'Open' note to the basic information box on the character sheet.

Sources Edit

New Living Pathfinder characters are created at first level using the approved sources listed below.
Approved sources:

  • Ultimate Equipment - (excludes firearms and related items, and all pertaining to spellblights)

Additional sources may be allowed in the future. Please make all proposals here.

  • If you do not possess these books all of the information is available on the Pathfinder System Reference Documents. Remember, however, that while the online reference documents include other materials, only rules as presented in the above sources are allowed.
