While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Pathfinder 2e- "Tome of Psionics" playtesting.
« on: May 02, 2022, 05:07:38 AM »
I have written a few adventures that will be included with the "Revised and Expanded" Tome of Psionics.
I should like to recruit four players, who know PF2E but are willing to play using my revision content.
  • only four players for now
  • only human ancestry for now
  • only Psionicists made using my Revision content for now
  • Each Psionicist will have one Primary art (chakra art)
  • The options are: Anima (healer), Geist (Psychokinetic), Mentu (Telepath), Seer (precognitive).
  • The archetypes from the book that will be used; (Anima) Mercy knight, Geist (Pyrokineticist), Mentu (Heartbreaker), Seer (Harrowed path).

This adventure starts at Level 1 and is titled "My Sister's keeper".
Style of play, "Playtesting" and "Role-playing".
I will not tolerate "Second guessers", "Sharpshooters", or "Trolls".
I do want "Role Players".
The following must be true:
1. Us citizen living in the US. give your state and city.
2. No players under 30. State your approximate age.
3. No I.q.'s lower than 120. The higher the better.
4. American English is your primary language.
5. Preference for prior military, former college students, and Degrees that include Psychology, (Any) engineering, (Any) physical science, (Any) technology.

Sir, are you on spectrum. Because this advertisement really is kinda authistic.

it seems cynical, but I MUST tell people what I do not want - especially because... Internet.  ::)
I get more honest people to respond when I have to tell OFF the fake.
"Hey, you shouldn't be like that". "Well, That was rude". etc. etc. etc.
 Those are my conditions in the Original post. if you do not like that...

too bad.

I'll give this a shot. I do need some clarification on one point, however. What is a "Sharpshooter" in RPG terms? I've never come across that one before.

Additionally, I've never played Pathfinder before. I've studied up on 5e and have played a lot of ICRPG lately. If you are willing to bear with me, I may be a good player.

Let me know. Thanks.

To "Sharpshoot" is to make false claims to derail the progress of a game. Such as false claims to extensive knowledge of a topic and experience.
For example; If I post an advert for an "Isekai" adventure using Pathfinder 2e rules and give the following introduction:

Scenarrio outline for players to get the gist of the introduction;
1. A group of attractive college attending young adults in a college study hall,
2. they side step into another room when they are done for the day to try a role playing game.
They are told to make their characters but not to give their characters names. Their characters are meant to be idealized versions of themselves.
3. The GM is secretly a master "Hypnotist" who left vegas. The GM places them all into a hypnotic trance and...
4. The group experiences a role playing game world (*not as a computer game with pop-ups and menus, but as if they are well and truly transported somewhere else)
5. they comeback to the real world and discuss the vividness of the experience,
6. then ask how they ALL could experience EXACTLY the same things,
7. then ponder some fringe areas of psychology/parapsychology/philosophy, shit like "Flat-land" and other dimensions.
8. one player notices the time, despite "being there for a few hours, no time has passed since they actually sat down".
9. One player has "dust" from tree bark all over his hands and shirt.
10. another player has a stinging angry red welt scratch, where his character was hit by an orc.
11. they notice one player, hasn't woken up from the trance.
12. The "What-the-fuck" fight breaks out between the players and the GM.
13. This isn't possible! Get her back! How is she "stuck" in a hypnotic trance? You- YOU DID THIS!
14. GM, "You are the only ones who can go and get her back, and I am the only one who can send you all back there."
15. "We narrowly escaped, do we leave her consciousness trapped in the other world (and as a prisoner of the orcs no less), or"...
16. "When we get back, GM, we are gonna have some words!


A sharpshooter in this scenario would be a player who says, "I am a hypnotist. I know what hypnotism is. I don't allow the hypnotist to hypnotize anyone there." just for starters.
In the above, hypnosis is only used as a plot device and the "handwave-ery" for how the fictional players above travel to a world of fantasy adventure.
This introduction is meant to "open a can of worms so to speak, as it should provoke the players to wonder, investigation, exploration, and looking for answers.

So, in other words, a douche player that deliberately and lamely avoids complications/difficulties for their character because they don't understand the point of an RPG.

Yeah, that ain't me. I certainly like my character to "look awesome" from time to time, but if there's no difficulty, there's no game, and the roleplay isn't nearly as varied.

I'll post another post in a few minutes with the remaining info you requested. Thanks.

I am going to abandon this project:
  • No interest
  • Paizo is releasing the "Dark Archive" in July

No profit for a niche already filled.
