    BACKGROUND:
    Preacher was initially born as Mosley Skyfire, the only son of a deposed Asimar princess. Her family  is held in bondage on a plantation of the Deep South. The land is ruled by an elite family of dark fey. Hired changelings and mongrel men serve as their slave overlords.

    The plantation lord is known as  Fae-Ro. When Mosley was just a babe,  Ro decreed all the first born males of all the slave families shall be put to death. Mosley's mother quickly stashed him in a wicker basket and stole away to the wood. She said a prayer on the banks of the Mighty Miss and sent him floating down the river.

    Mosley was picked up by a family of alligator hunters in the southern Swamplands. Adopted by a family of Irish immigrants, he was given the name Lloyd McMenamin.

    Lloyd grew up thinking he was a fellow human, only adopted. He learned tricks of  the alligator hunting trade, but his true love was for the fire-and-brimstone church the McMenamins attended regularly.

    While still a young teen, he attended one particularly energizing Sunday service. Lloyd's latent Asimar powers became manifest. He kept them secret though, knowing how sorcery was negatively viewed by the community.

    When Lloyd had grown into adulthood, he went to seminary for a short time, then became a traveling preacher. He believed his powers were gifted by the Almighty. He worked for good and to help the downtrodden.

    Preacher visited Haiti during his travels. He stayed on as a student for several months to the tribal witch Olivia Ormonde. Preacher went on a vision quest and his true heritage became revealed. His mother the asimar princess and her family had been betrayed by a clan of shadow spirits. Lloyd's blood was mixed with the energy matrix of both celestial and shadow.

    Preacher swore to find out more and returned to the continental US. In the Deep South, he keeps his powers secret. Fae-Ro's minions regularly comb the territory looking for runaway slaves. They are known to capture or kill anyone who might possess a threat to Ro's power grip.

    Preacher continues his travels. He preaches the gospel and helps the downtrodden. Meanwhile he secretly works against Fae-Ro's influence.

    But that is another tale, in the World of Darkness...

    Nearly completed. Need to finish selecting spells, feats, and some basic equipment.

    Went with Crossblooded, so he could have a little more magical variety. Mystic Past Life also lets him draw from the bard spell list.


    Background coming soon!

    only problem that I see is Hero Points - how did you get 9? Normally, a character can only ever have a max of 3 unless you take the feats that allow for more... which I think the max for all of that is 5 or 6. Just look at that and adjust


    otherwise, looks great!

    Sorry, typo! And like I said, still need to adjust some spells and feats... Finally got some much-needed time off next week so I can get the background up too.

    cheers digging the background!  it's like a mashup of AMC's Badlands and the story of Moses

    I can't wait to see Preacher in action


    if you have 750 gold left over, please buy a wand of CLW for topping you off after fights.

    I am playing a dedicated healer, if you want something else besides the cure X spells, feel free (not that I telling you how to build your character Cool my job will always be healing first and foremost. I can whack things but only if nobody needs healing

    One slight problem.... the North still won the Civil War (which predated the vast majority of this current world). Slavery is outlawed.. even for non-humans.

    However... Jim Crow would have been changed to deal with any non-humans... it could be more of a form of 'institutional slavery' than a legal thing.

    Otherwise.. looks good mate!

    Chris, I never watched Badlands yet. Any good? Preacher has some healing spells and powers too. Wands and pots CLW are always a good plan!


    Josh, yeah Jim Crow institutional slavery-mindset, it is! And I kept his background kind of generalized, so if you more specific names/regions/etc I can provide them..

    I only saw season 1, which is now on Netflicks. s2 is on AMC currently

    I enjoyed it for what it was. It was a like a saturday morning kung fu special (Donnie that played in Rogue1) splashed with a post-apocalyptic mad-maxian world that reverted to feudal baronism in the South.

    I watched it and thought... this was someone's home-brew RPG game 20 years ago

    In PF, guns are expensive!


    So I checked out the first season of Into the Badlands. It's pretty good! I like the setting, and has some excellent kung fu sword fighting!

    I am glad you (both) enjoyed it!

    Marco Polo on Netflix is also excellent (though definitely R-rated). Some great battle scenes, martial arts, cinematography and overall top-notch acting.

    Cool! I will have to check out Marco Polo, and stoked to see GoT's when it comes out soon..

    Badlands had some good acting, lots of blood too.

    We've been going thru the Star Trek series. They are all on Netflix. We started with Voyager.. then Enterprise, Original Series, currently Next Generation. May go thru Deep Space Nine too, but it's not my favorite series. Some of the characters are good.

    Looking forward to the new ST series when it comes out!

    Give DS9 a chance. Personally, I think it's the second best series. The Dominion War was pretty cool.


    ...just my opinion but the new ST series is starting to look and sound awful. It doesn't really sound like a Trek series, it sounds like something far different. Just my 2 cents

    How close are you to being finished with your guy Rob?

    I did that with all the ST series about a year ago cheers

    but I only watched the ones that were from the main plot lines or cool alt-universe ones. I skipped all the holo-deck adventures or 2 get lost on a shuttle missions.

    I ended up liking Voyager a lot more than I thought I would. I am going to give Discovery a chance (like Josh said about DS9). I think a new idea might be just what is needed. The old series got stale.

    Josh, I will get my guy done 100% by Sunday night.

    Star Trek: Voyager is high on my list too. Enterprise is definitely at the bottom. Don't know what to make about Discovery yet. Deep Space 9 I've only watched a few. I am interested in seeing how the Dominion War plays out.

    No problem bro...

    I really liked Enterprise at times.. the problem was the writing. It got too uneven and Braga and Berman went too dark for Star Trek (although, I still love the 2 part "Through a Mirror, Darkly")

    I updated Preacher's equipment. Realized that his gunsmithing skill gives him a discount on guns/ammo.

    He has 6565gp left. Happy to kick down for a party truck or van. Maybe we rent one wherever we end up?

    Ready to rock!

    Preacher recently bought a dozen fancy trunks. Standard chests are 2gp each and I priced these at 5gp. I'm thinking they are something from the movie Joe vs The Volcano.

    Anyways, he has nearly 6 grand to spend on porters, taxis, or the rail system.

    Preacher recently ran a workshop and had a sermon at Ascension Fest, an annual rigorous devotional gathering in southern Florida. While he is in the area, Preacher is taking in some pastoral alligator hunting. Though he is relaxing, he is ready to go wherever the Almighty guides him. Maybe it's another sermon somewhere. Or a new way to foil the Fae-Ro's plans.

    Marco Polo on Netflix is also excellent (though definitely R-rated).  Some great battle scenes, martial arts, cinematography and overall top-notch acting.

    Preacher can select the time for this to take place (either recently or a year ago, etc.)

    You have been reading the papers more and more and seeing the evil in Europe grow day by day. The evil one has his hands in everything it would appear. This, if anywhere, it a place to take the fight to the enemy. The U.S., for some reason, has far fewer problems with monsters and magical folk...

    From the standpoint of a holy warrior, it might be best to start in France (which is less chaotic) and move eastward. You've heard of a few organizations in Europe that seem to be "fighting the good fight".

    Giving you some wide latitude here... how would you like to proceed and do you have any questions?

    Preacher will begin in France, checking in with the local cathedrals and using other Catholic resources.

    That makes this easier. Very Happy

    You have found out that the University of Paris is a good place to start. A certain Professor DuMont is considered one of the foremost authorities on the subject.

    How much was the ticket?

    Preacher checks in at a hotel near the university. He will call Professor DuMont's office and arrange a meeting. He expects to reach a secretary or answering service.

    How advanced are telephones in this time? Are they magically endowed?

    He says, "Greetings Madam, my name is Lloyd McMenamin and I am a brother of the cloth. No, I'm sorry, I only speak in English. Well, I wish to speak to professor DuMont, regarding, um, important research. Yes, very important. Thank you. He may contact me at the hotel."

    He spends his free time during the day somewhere on campus preaching to university students.

    Actually, telephones are pretty much normal.  If you look at the rules for magic (that is at least the guiding principle here) telephone could actually be faster.


    A man comes up to you and says "Professor Du Mont is seeing someone right now, can you wait for a moment or is this urgent?"

    as you are about to answer, the door at the end of the hall opens and a small man comes walking swiftly down the hall "Henri'.. have you seen Francois? That boy is never where I leave him"

    Henri' jerks a thumb over his shoulder and points to a small table where two young men are playing chess. "Francois!, I have been looking for you!"

    Henri' then points you out to Dr. Du Mont... "this gentleman, from America, just came here looking for you professor... my but your popular today!"

    Dr. Du Mont sizes you up (he's very short by the way)... do you know anything about ancient history or the occult? If not, I must see you later."

    "I know some things. I know what the Good Book says. The world is a darkness, but through Me, you will find the light!"

    Cast Heavenly Fire at Dr Du Mont. 4 + 4 = 8 divine.

    Heavenly Fire (Sp): Starting at 1st level, you can unleash a ray of heavenly fire as a standard action, targeting any foe within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. Against evil creatures, this ray deals 1d4 points of damage + 1 for every two sorcerer levels you possess. This damage is divine and not subject to energy resistance or immunity. This ray heals good creatures of 1d4 points of damage + 1 for every two sorcerer levels you possess. A good creature cannot benefit from your heavenly fire more than once per day. Neutral creatures are neither harmed nor healed by this effect. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier.

    So if he's evil he takes damage, if he's good, he gains healing. If he's neutral he gets neither.

    He seems perked up and even more energetic (for an older guy) than he did... though he eyes you strangely for having used a spell... which still has some kind of components, or at least you waiving your arms around.

    ...regardless. He appears to be waiting for an answer... somewhat impatiently.

    He gets the younger man to follow him and motions for you to follow them into a different area of the building.

    The professor is lost in his conversation with Francois. You eventually make your way into a storage area... there are artifacts and historical items everywhere.

    ...there is also another man that looks to be trying to speak to the professor.

    "oh... Well, uh, h-how dya do there," Olistaff accepts the handshake awkwardly, but firmly with exaggerated, but authentic enthusiasm.  "Let's see the good word," he thinks out loud.  Then as if just noticing the preachers collar, "oh, well, um eternal damnation, uh, divine sacrifice as a free gift, propitiation of sin, renewal of the soul, and resurrection of the body?". (He appears to be following a Methodist Episcopal check list).  "Well, I think th-that covers it, so I suppose I have heard the good word, but I don't think I'm supposed to get tired of hearing it?"
