We've got a landmark build for our Fantasy Location with BUILD #100! Didn't look like we were going to make it for a while there, but at least for a while, we're stocking the shelves like the old days!

Abilities 94 + Skills 9 (18 ranks) + Advantages 6 + Powers 144 + Defenses 9 = 262 / 262

Comments: It originally took me a long time to work up a Beholder. The main reason it took me so long was me waffling about just having the eye beams come from the Beholder, or whether to work up an Eye Stalk Minion set up. For now, I’m going with this non-minion version and giving it 5 HP to use to recover from Extra Effort several times when I want it to take an extra action to send another eye beam at the PCs. If I don’t like how it tests, I’ll go back to the minion set up idea.
Yeah the eye stalk thing can be a tough build. I never built a Beholder but I did stat a Retriever which has similar powers. I made it a free action but with a quirk (or you could go limitation) that the beam cannot be used if another beam was used.

I love ghouls. I really like what Pathfinder has done with them, making them more of a social animal and less mindless undead.
They just wanna...
They just wannaaaaaaa.

Ghouls just wanna have fun...
After his success co-authoring a murder mystery w/James Patterson, Marvel is now talking to Bill Clinton about doing some comics writing: a revival of Steve Gerber's swamp monster hero. They expect Bill Clinton's 'Man-Thing' will be very popular.

That's a pretty solid conversion - I like the little bit of regeneration.
That's similar to how they function in the Dresdenverse, which I why I have the tag Fantasy on my Gloriant ghouls. I have a build of those, too, that I will eventually post at J-Mart when I get around to Harry and crew.

Kurikami

Post by Thorpocalypse » Sun Jan 21, 2018 4:07 am

Image

As I stated in my Gilthorian domain post, I will be posted snippets about the other domains of Gloriant a few builds to capture the flavor of the land. This is land of Kurikami, based on the Magic the Gathering plane of Kamigawa.

--

KURIKAMI

Reminiscent of sengoku-era Japan, the land of Jaijin contains two symbiotic planes: the utsushiyo, or material realm, and the kakuriyo, or kami spirit realm. Each kami was a divinity, and the way to happiness was to honor these gods and live by their ways. For many hundreds of years, Jaijin's denizens peacefully worshipped the spirits of their land. The inhabitants of Jaijin were content with this life of devotion. Then the unimaginable happened. Their gods turned on them.

Slowly at first, the kami began to take form in the material world. Some scholars believed they were delivering a message or a warning. But their appearance was so alien and surreal, no true meaning could be discerned.

Meanwhile, the land's most powerful warlord, the daimyo Takeshi Konda, ruled over the Towabara Plains from his stronghold at Eiganjo. Even as his armies and samurai secured more territory in Konda's name, the kami manifested in ever-greater numbers.

Then came the night that changed Jaijin forever. A few miles from Eiganjo Castle, the kami set upon the town of Reito. Scores of spirit-world monstrosities swept through the town, killing nearly every living thing. Hundreds were slain and few survived. The Kami War had begun. Over the next twenty years, spirits of every shape and size would descend on the plains, ravaging everything in their path. Jaijin's people wondered why the kami betrayed them, even as they fought for survival. What had they done wrong?

Throughout this siege, Konda remained within his stronghold, mysteriously safe from harm.

In truth, it was the proud daimyo Konda who had begun the war. With aid from moonfolk allies, Konda kidnapped a kami to secure his own power and immortality. This outraged the great O-Kagachi, kami of all things, igniting an ire that would claim countless lives.

Only Konda's daughter Michiko and a stolen kami—an entity who calls herself Kyodai—have any hope of placating the kami and restoring a fragile peace to the land. But they cannot do it alone.

Abilities 34 + Skills 10 (20 ranks) + Advantages 8 + Powers 9 + Defenses 6 = 67 / 67

Comments: Completely stole Jab’s idea of stealing the Shokan as a race for my fantasy setting. They are just a GREAT design for a fantasy setting. Big, bad, four-armed brawlers just seem to be perfect for throwing in as big time mooks or making a grabbling beast of a PC out of.

I thought about Growth for the base build but I started looking at art and most of the depictions of Goro, Sheeva and Kintaro and it seems that Shokan size is all over the place so I figure the base Shokan are big for humans, but not gigantic. That’s reserved for Goro and a few NPC types like the huge Shokan in that pic.

Abilities 56 + Skills 17 (34 ranks) + Advantages 16 + Powers 30 + Defenses 12 = 131 / 131

Comments: Sister Eli is a Tabaxi monk from Kurikami who is a member of the Order of the Rose. Brother Tym, the leader of the Order is good friends with King Xander Daellion and as such, unbeknownst to Arisema, Sister Eli has been sent with her to watch over her and report back to the King if anything goes awry. Arisema had met Sister Eli years ago and has known Brother Tym as a family friend for years so she didn't question Sister Eli's desire to adventure with her, stating her reasons to be that she wishes to see the world and fight for justice. But Sister Eli regrets her inability to tell her the true reason she is accompanying her because she and the King know that Arisema would be ticked off about it. But she gave her word so she intends to keep it.

I am iffy on how I adjusted her caps, but a test will see if she performs like I want. I went for a stick and move type of monk with her so she should goon sweep pretty well, but without Power Attack, she will be at a disadvantage against more powerful opponents.

Its wings produce a high-pitched, barely audible whirring sound in flight. Only Ojutai masters are quiet enough to hear one coming.

Comments: I love Praying Mantis’ (Mantises?). They are cool looking creatures. I had a few in my back yard for a while and you don’t see that many in my part of the Midwest so I was pretty happy. And then I got the Mantis Rider card for Magic The Gathering when I became Jeskai ‘Til I Die and my love grew even more because it’s a great card. So I couldn’t wait much longer to post some Giant Mantis’ here for my fantasy setting.

Giant Mantis' (Mantisees'?) are found in large numbers in the land of Jatar but are also populous in the domain of Kurikami. They can be tamed as mounts for the monk orders that live high in the mountains where they are often found but it requires great skill as they can be vicious predators.

And I didn’t get to see it live, but watching a real female mantis tear the head off her mate after they do it is one the more disturbing sights in the animal kingdom. Makes me glad human women only do that metaphorically. ;)

Comments: Can’t help it, I’m a sucker for anthropomorphic pandas. I almost started playing WOW just to play one. Anyway, in my setting, Panderians can be found in many places but originated in Kurikami and are most populous there.

That's it for the denizens of Kurimkami at the moment. I'll add more after I get builds from all the domains up over the next few weeks. I really want to get some Moonfolk up as well as some of the Kami creatures.

Haha, sweet- this is super-detailed and cool. I forgive you for taking my Shokan idea, since they seem to fit into this world quite well :).

Thanks for the forgiveness of the swiping of the swiping! ;)

I was thinking of all the races I wanted for my world and I was struggling with some to add to my homage to the east setting. I was actually looking at your Overwatch stuff when MK jumped into my mind and it hit me that you had brought in the Shokan to Castellia. And I figure one good swipe deserved another. :)

Comments: Here’s a core build of vampires for my setting. Much like the Dresdenverse and the Magic the Gathering settings, I plan on having different versions of vampires for different domains and situations. Some can function in daylight, some can fly, some are regal an refined, some are feral, some are ridiculuously powerful, some aren’t. But all of them are a pain in the ass to the heroes of the world in one way or another.

This is a build for what could be considered a “base” Black Court vampire, your standard vampire, but expect builds of the other types in the future.

--

The term vampire is used for several kinds of creatures. They each are separate and different, but have a common trait in feeding on other beings in various ways.

The different vampire kinds do not seem to have distinct proper names, instead being called after the organisations heading their kind, the Vampire Courts. It is believed that are seven vampire courts. Four Courts are known: the White Court, the Red Court, the Black Court, and the Jade Court. Besides those, the others are "little better than mosquitos" according the heads of the four main courts. Sometimes, the term "anthrophage" (or "human-eater"), is used for them.

The Courts are several organizations of vampires. Each Court represents one type of creatures that, although different, are commonly all called "vampires".

Black Court vampires are the most common vampires and are found in all domains. They have been around since the "dawn of human memory". Black Court vampires are a dangerous type of undead. Whilst humans are the most common victims of their vampirism, it can infect other species as well, including hounds and even dragons. Throughout the world, vampires can be created through other vampires transforming their victims, or through enchantment.

The most defining characteristic of these vampires is their hunger for the blood or lifeforce of others. Other traits of vampires can include unnatural physical strength, enhanced healing powers and the ability to fly, with the method of flight being through either natural or magical means. Many Black Court vampires are highly sensitive to sunlight and therefore only go out at night or in the shade, but this is not always the case. Regardless, the secretive and predatory nature of the creatures means that they all prefer the cover of darkness. The Black Court vampires can range from being mindless predators to sophisticated and intelligent nobles. The appearance of these vampires is similarly varied, although they all have at least two elongated fangs and the more feral ones have bat-like qualities.

Not all Black Court vampires are created equal. Among the existing vampiric bloodlines, some are more common but prestigious whereas some are rare but less respected. It is believed that their were originally twelve bloodlines, which originated long ago in a ritual that had something to do with their progenitor. It is believed that three of these bloodlines have died out completely. Five others are relatively minor, having sired fewer vampires. Each bloodline has a special affinity to certain abilities innate to the vampiric form.

White Court vampires appear human and prey on human emotions and energies. They are long lived, possibly immortal. The ones that have been seen can be identified by a shared inhuman beauty, and blood that is "a few shades too pale to be human".

Their vampiric state is genetic and highly hereditary, rather than created like the other three Courts. They are, for all intents and purposes, human until their vampirism manifests sometime around the age of their maturity. As with the Red Court, their first feeding, with its subsequent and almost inevitable kill, usually marks their full transformation, and awakens the demon that lives inside of them, forcing them to feed. If they refrain from feeding for too long, this "Hunger" drives them into a frenzy where they must feed, usually enough to permanently harm or kill their victim, and can drive the vampire permanently insane. However, under specific circumstances, individuals descended from White Court vampires may curtail their transformation into vampires completely.

Red Court vampires are non-human creatures, capable of disguising themselves as humans and preying upon humans for their blood. A lot less human-like than White Court vampires, they are slimy bat-like creatures hidden under a flesh mask, which they use to trick their prey into being more comfortable, and to hide in plain sight.

They are incredibly strong and fast, and can heal from any injury quickly. They are, however vulnerable to sunlight and to having their bellies cut open, which can spill the blood they have drunk, seriously weakening or even killing them. Crosses and other forms of faith magic don't repel them as much as they do Black Court vampires, and they have a more solid footing in reality.

Very little is known about the Jade Court. They are very secretive and that they originated in reside in the Kurikami domain.
