Pacifist Pathfinder Pregens
Even though Pathfinder Society agents are part of a larger organization they tend to group themselves into smaller factions based on nationality, religion, race or ideology. Some of these parties are easier to play and some take a more experienced role-player to accomplish the goals set forth in a scenario or module. Here is one of those more difficult to play parties of pre-generated characters.
One of the foundations of the majority of role-playing games is combat, but what if a party does not believe in violence and chooses to focus instead on the exploration duties of the Society? Do the players use diplomacy or intimidation when dealing with others? What happens when presented with situations that only combat could accomplish? Do they automatically give up or do they find another way? Do they rise above and become legends of the Society?
This balanced party presents unique challenges and opportunities. Everyone has impressive social skills and can still hold their own in actual combat. In combat they do only deal non-lethal damage so as to not break their oaths and corrupt their values. Look them over and let us discuss them; this is a very interesting group. And now to present the Pacifists:
Gaerk Hardrock (Male Dwarf Cavalier – Huntmaster) : This tough, grizzled old dwarf and his trusty old dog joined the Society’s Silver Crusade after years of struggle with orcs, giants and goblins. Gaerk is just tired of the fighting and has taken up the Order of the Blue Rose to help point him in a new direction in his life. (Possible Prestige Path : Stalwart Defender)
Tarkhun Marxion (Male Human Cleric – Hidden Priest, Separatist) : Born and raised in Taldor all his life but keeping his worship of Sarenrae a secret, Tarkhun poses as a sorcerer and uses his blunted morningstar to promote peace and goodwill throughout the Inner Sea. (Possible Prestige Path : Dawnflower Dissident)
Ping Jing (Male Human Monk – Ki Mystic, Sensei, Monk of the Lotus) : From the Far East, Ping arrived at the Grand Lodge looking to learn more of the world so that he may in turn pass it on to his students. He seeks perfection and peace for this world and wishes to share all of the knowledge he gathers in this life. (Possible Prestige Path : Pathfinder Chronicler)
Selene (Female Aasimar Paladin – Warrior of the Holy Light, Tranquil Guardian) : Hailing from the deserts of Osirion, the tanned Selene claims a distant ancestor as a celestial being. Drawing on her inner light, she intends to bring peace and tranquility to the world while serving the Ruby Prince. (Possible Prestige Path : Living Monolith)
Eagilis of Forest Green (Female Half-Elf Witch) : As a stalwart champion of freedom and peace, the aging Eagilis uses her gifts from her magical dove to promote her homeland of Andoran. Wearing her somewhat suspect fullplate and brandishing her shiny spear, her knowledge of the world and magical abilities complement her goals. NOTE: The patron of peace is not legal in Society Organized Play, so pick another and the dove familiar would the just a re-skinned thrush to complement the theme. (Possible Prestige Path : Steel Falcon)
