I guess you missed the part when I said he was magically and genetically altered.
>>
>>50739718
Not exactly.
I'm not 100% sure right now, but I think it's stated either in the very first short story, "The Witcher", OR at least in the first collection of short stories that witchers are infertile.

>>50739786
I'm just pointing out that he focused on the least important and purely accidental aspect of those alterations

He'd be a Witcher.
In his own rules system.

>>50739834
>purely accidental aspect of those alterations
Don't think it's accidental. If I remember correctly, wizards and sorceresses are intentionally made infertile during their training, as lifelong exposure to magic energies screws up reproductive systems and usually turns caster's offspring into stillborns or mutated abominations. Wizards who initially created witchers probably had that in mind.
It was also heavily implied that Geralt is a child of a careless sorceress who, to her surprise, turned out to still be fertile. Which is why he was given to witchers, being unwanted and possibly genetically defective.
>>

The Witcher RPG, from Poland.

>>50740537
>All that fanon
Witchers are infertile, because the changes they go through render them infertile. It's that fucking simple. They barely qualify as human in the first place.
>>
>>50740537
That's not precisely why Witchers are sterile.
Witchers are sterile the same way most real-life heavily mutated creatures are sterile; the massive changes to their genetics makes them incapable of having children of any kind because they are either missing or have parts of their genetic code added that don't fit with normal human beings anymore. Kinda like trying to piece together a Lego puzzle with a cardboard puzzle; similar basic concept, but no it doesn't work.

Mages of all kinds are sterile because apparently magic is a lot like radiation in that not only can it cause random mutations but that it causes infertility among women in most cases.
>>
>>50740525
Which was nice to see.

>>50740575
Fanon? It's all from the books. The only thing I made up is witcher's infertility being intentional.
And yes, I understand they are infertile because their bodies are altered. That is not a point of my post. The question is, was infertility an irrelevant side effect or one of the research objectives to make sure that thing does not reproduce.
>>50740583
There is no reason to assume witcher initiation changes their genetic code. It is not required to alter the body if you don't want new properties to be passed on to next generation.
And I am sure that it was mentioned in the books that sterility is not caused directly by magic, it is intentionally done to eliminate a chance of having mutated offspring altogether. There are a lot of magicians who canonically had children without any complications. Ciri's ancestors, for example.

Were I to try to re-create Geralt in Pathfinder,...hm. I'm thinking Ranger/Inquisitor. Or maybe Ranger/Alchemist. I'd also with with the "Skirmisher" archetype for Ranger, which loses spellcasting for an array of extremely useful and often very potent tricks and abilities.

Main class would definitely be Ranger, though.

>>
>>50743822
I've heard some good things about the original one, the only problem being that nobody's ever translated the whole thing.

I have the most complete version somewhere, it all got translated, but not into conversational-quality english. Although, I've heard that this version (never actually checked myself) still gives you enough to play with, basic rules n such.
>>
>>50744509
It gives you all the rules. It literally cuts out where the fluff starts. Shame they never got monsters covered, but if you read the translated rules, it's pretty easy to at least get stats and skills of each monster from the original book added to the translation.
>>

>>50744640
Huh, I see.

That's reminded me of something else I found, here we go.

Version that someone did in GURPS, there's another part.
>>
>>50744701
Apparently there was a third part in the making, but I never found that.
>>
>>50744701
>>50744725
The GURPS version has two obvious flaws:
- it's unfinished (and unlike the unfinished translation, that simply means certain areas not being covered)
- it's almost entirely based on the first video game

On my personal note, comes also the following:
- it can't handle witcher signs properly
But that's purely personal opinion.

>>50738129

Seriously? You never saw an owlbear in "Stat me" thread?
>>
>>50737665
This. Geralt is basically a textbook Ranger, he doesn't even need any real alteration from the 5e PHB template, just be sure to buy a second longsword over his starting equipment and silver it.

>>50739691
Those are by-blows of the real benefit of their metabolism, the third game (incidentally the only game that really made it big) glosses over it for gameplay but witchers are largely competitive with monsters by ingesting potions and their metabolism is basically geared up to allow them to chug potions strong enough to get them onto the monsters level without killing them. As >>50739703 says, the potion tolerance is the real kicker there.
>>
>>50746975
Potions in the source material were barely there. In fact, the most useful aspect of them was night vision and enhanced senses. Geralt used them more often to just hear if anyone is sneaking on him than actually fighting monsters.
Especially since most of the monster slaying happens in the short stories anyway.
