Campaign Goals

  • Evolving equipment: depending on whether many people are using free magic item classes I might try to introduce an evolving magic item system like in Earthdawn (or Weapons of Legacy)--> Flagged Events or situations that are cool enough to be an Event = narrative source of power, ie dragon fighting, epic poetry smackdown etc. Upside comes with a downside. Also magic item DCs should increase with level.
  • Make Tian Xia way less japanese (ie no katanas, most chinese weapons have western analogues), less japanese names
  • Set the entire adventure path in the asian setting, this will require retooling the first 4 adventure books (lol) and resetting PC expectation of being able to rampage around a completely lawless world (at least in the beginning)
  • Encounter design is not going to focus on fairness, and disengages/avoidance should be possible
  • Enhanced narrative sections, less cutscenes.

House Rules

HP is rated at: D6: 4 D8: 5 D10: 7 D12: 8

Fighters get a good will progression.

The agile weapon modifier is bought as a +4000 GP modifier.

Rogues run a full BAB and D10 HP. Rogue items that give bonus to hits are now all under revision.
