Hardcore Hackfest
« on: May 07, 2013, 02:44:27 am »
This is the flyer for the "house game" at Hat's in Tucson this August.  So far, 25 people are screaming at me for the sign up sheet.  Sorry, that isn't posted til Wednesday.

Quote
HAT'S HARDCORE HACKFEST

How long can you stay alive?  This is a Pathfinder adventure set in the Frog God Games world, and starts Sunday, August 4th at 1PM, and runs every Sunday thereafter.  Sign up is first come, first served, with additional players on the waiting list.

Rules of the Hackfest

1.  When a player's character dies, he bounces to the bottom of the roster.  If the player's was raised, the player may bring his or her character back in when he or she rotates back to the top of the waiting list.  If the character had a cohort, the player may use that character as his or her character when he or she rotates to the top of the waiting list.  If a player comes up in the rotation and cannot be reached or is unavailable, they move down one spot on the roster.  Otherwise, all characters begin at first level.

2.  No whining.  If you're dead, you're dead.  There's no crying in Rappan Athuk.

3.  The game will be run by Pathfinder book rules, except as noted under House Rules, below.  Any published Paizo rule sets may be used.  No 3rd party or 3.0/3.5 rule sets will be allowed.

4.  Purchasing game supplies, books, miniatures, etc from hats will garner an experience point award equal to 1 experience point per penny spend, tax not included.  A receipt must be presented, or Hat must vouch for the purchase.

5.  A players guide PDF will be provided before the campaign begins.  This will include available deities, new traits, new feats, new spells, etc. 

6.  All characters will be generated using the 20 point buy method, and the medium experience track will be used.

House Rules

1.  Only the following published optional rules are in play:  Honor (explained in more detail in the PDF), Traits, Called Shots, Piecemeal Armor (armor pieces must be one category lighter than the torso, but studded leather may always be used), Critical & Fumble cards will replace the regular critical mechanic in the core rulebook except on called shots.  An additional faction will be presented in the PDF.

2.  Races available from the Advanced Race Guide are detailed in the PDF.  Consult this before creating your character.  Rules in the PDF/Frog God supplements trump Paizo rules in all cases.

3.  Unless you cannot be flanked, you do not threaten the 3 squares to the rear of your miniature.

4.  No characters of evil alignment are permitted.  You're supposed to be the heroes.  Don't even ask.

5.  Experience will be awarded at the end of a level or the end of a session, whichever comes first.  A 10% bonus will be awarded to the best role player, as determined by the DM, a 10% bonus will be awarded to the most valuable player, as determined by a group vote.  No player may collect both in one session.  A "clean sweep" bonus of 10% will be awarded to the group if a dungeon level is completed EITHER without the party leaving the dungeon OR in one session.

There will be mayhem.  I expect the "obituary wall" to fill up quickly.

BITCHES DON'T KNOW ABOUT DYING HORRIBLY IN A FUCKING DUNGEON!!!

They also NEVER catch on that the "clean-sweep bonus" is a HORRIBLE TRAP.

People will do the STUPIDEST SHIT to get a measly 10% experience bonus.

This sounds like it's going to be a blast.  I can't wait to read the log.  I just wish I lived nearby so I could play too.
