Discussion

you may discuss any further details here and finalize your characters. the 10 of you are the chosen inmates. and yes, you will eventually get to recover your gear on the way out. though i still need to stat out boss opponents.

Grand Lodge

DM Faelax reporting, tell me what you need. Id be glad to stat out bosses if you would like Insert evil laugh here


some elite bodyguards and a guard captain. preferably around 4-5th level, lightly armored to make pursuing fugitives easier, and equip to challenge but not quite kill an undergeared party of 10 1st level PCs. low level potions, scrolls or wands are fine, but permanent magic items are not meant to be carried by these guys.

Hello all

Hmm, I'll need to pick gear to recover it.

go ahead. everyone pick thier missing gear to recover it. you needn't worry about rations or water at the moment, it's only a prison. the missing gear will be distributed amongst vaults as you go through the prison. consider it max starting gold worth of weapons armor and shields etc. any food, consumables. ammunition etc would be confiscated for military use.


I'll be creating my character account shortly. For the starting gold, is that based on class? So for a Paladin with the average of 175 gold on a 5d6 x 10, does this mean I'd start with 360 gold?


Male Tiefling Alchemist/3

In place of finding all my starting gear amongst the prison, would I be able to hit my character's alchemy shop (which has almost certainly been looted in his absence, I should think) to grab some of his kit from his room there? I'm thinking especially his alchemy kit would be there, due to the nature of his arrest.

Grand Lodge

Alright. Will have stat blocks shortly. I assume you want them pm'd to you?


Male Human (Cheliaxian) Paladin 2

Progress


Hi! Checking in to the discussion thread.

@Whoever wondered what role a witch plays in the other thread: We'll both be figuring that out as this is my first.


max based on class. so 5d6x10 =300 4d6x10 = 240.

yep.

Naberius, you can find some of your stuff at your alchemy shop. just dedeuct the diference from the gear you recover at the prison.

Will do!

As I said on that thread, I'm pretty sure witches combine offense and support with their magic along with their hexes and have some small combat potential. That's just from looking through the class for one of my RL players, though, so I'm no authority.


Male Aasimar Oracle 2

As for the role thing:

Healer? Not really no. I can heal but so could an Alchemist with Infusion, a Witch or a Bard. I'll be spending more and more time on the frontlines as I get stronger.

As for Witches, they are just about the nastiest controllers on the block. Slumber, Evil Eye, Misfortune, Cackle, they all kick ass. So do Agony and Ice Tomb once we get there.

EDIT: It's kinda challenging to find the appropriate gear for my character, as weapon wise I'm ok with a quartestaff, which is free, and the followers of Andoletta actually live a relatively sober life.

EDIT2: And done


What's happening. Akari, AKA foxxy mamma, aka da wild one reporting.

Scratch that. What's up everybody? I'll get working on my gear. Should be pretty simple.

My backstory etc. is all in my profile.


Male Half-elf

The Bard, that's me, will definitely have a healing spell, but that's not much.

Whoo! Hoo! I got a game!

Now off to buy eq and finish out the char.


Male Human (Cheliaxian) Paladin 2

Well, thankfully Paladins have Lay on Hands for any future needs.


Male Tiefling Alchemist/3

Gear done! And I'll be able to pick up infusion at some point, which can also help with healing.


Male Aasimar Oracle 2

Just to make it clear, I didn't mean people have to pick up healing skills I just said they can.

I might a slight change to Alain's skills (replacing Know: Arcana with Know: Nature) and feat (Skill Focus moved to Know: Nature instead of Know: Religion) as I'll be grabbing Eldritch Heritage feats but I'm not quite sure which one and Knowledge - Nature gives me more options that thematically fit with my character.


Male Human (Cheliaxian) Paladin 2

Aleksandyr has the actual "Heal" skill in addition to picking up Lay on Hands at second level, and then access to "cure" spells when he becomes a spellcaster.


Pyrrius checking in. He's something of a second line combattant with a side order of blast. Still need to figure out the rest of his equipment though.


Human Urban Ranger/2 HP 19/19 INIT+6 AC 17 CMB+4 CMD+18 MW Longsword (+5 Att) 1d8+2/19-20x2 DW Composite Long Bow (+8 to Att) 1d8+3/x3 F+5 R+6 W+1

Aromar checking in ... a last minute addition, Thanks Wolfman. Will get to work on the details shortly ... Urban Ranger, Archer Specialization.


Will there be an update shortly?


Male Half-elf

Crunch complete, background finished.


well, i have been unexpectedly busy. but one of the CO DMs may start the IC thread for me and take over for a bit.

Shadow Lodge

Male Half-elf Magus

Still here, give me a shout with anything you would like me to do.


This weekend went a bit nuts. I'll get the stuff I promised up tonight or tomorrow.

Likewise.


Male Human (Cheliaxian) Paladin 2

Posted and so begins the epic ten character campaign.


Human Urban Ranger/2 HP 19/19 INIT+6 AC 17 CMB+4 CMD+18 MW Longsword (+5 Att) 1d8+2/19-20x2 DW Composite Long Bow (+8 to Att) 1d8+3/x3 F+5 R+6 W+1

Wolfman - you said I could join as the 11th by PM - is that still the case? I am finalizing my crunch offline and about to post it for the Urban Ranger.


What's going on with this campaign...?

Lantern Lodge

Not much it appears, sadly. If you're still swamped in work GM please let us know (and whip your co-GM's into shape :P)

Shadow Lodge

Male Half-elf Magus

co-GM here is happy to help but also has no idea what's happening or what's going to happen :P


:) I dunno but I'm lost. DM did say he's unexpectedly busy these days.

I'd say... keep your eyes open for Ashton Kutcher, cuz we've all been Punk'D!

No I'm kidding.


The GM has one more week or I'll just call this another failed game.


Where are you guys getting those languages? Is there a list of what equates to what somewhere?


It looks like Blast opted for Draconic being analogous to Latin in our world and Alian went with Celestial being like Hebrew. Both choices make sense from a thematic standpoint--Draconic being an ancient tongue and Celestial being tied to good aligned outsiders. I decided to follow their lead and used Google Translate to generate the text for Mellany's replies.


Male Tiefling Alchemist/3

Mellany's exactly right. I enjoy putting RL languages into game for Golarion languages. In this case, Latin made the logical match for Draconic. Hebrew makes sense for Celestial. The racial languages would be a little harder to match, but not incredibly so.


Male Aasimar Oracle 2

I grabbed Italian for Sylvan, but that's just because of their former prime-minister who's first name is Silvio.

I was personally thinking of grabbing Russian for Infernal, just don't have a clue for Shadowtongue (mix of Infernal, Azlanti and Common). Just have to figure out which other languages use the Cyrillic alphabet.


i am still busy with RL work. the Co GMs will need to take over the majority for a while.


@Wolfman: You might want to send your co-GMs a quick note telling them where you were intending to take things (if you had such plans.) That way they won't be too concerned with taking the adventure too far off track.


Male Tiefling Alchemist/3

Agreed with Mellany. Seems from other comments that they're wondering what to do.

Shadow Lodge

Male Half-elf Magus

Ditto. I've had no communication with the DM that you guys haven't seen, apart from me sending him that little starting blurb.


Hey guys, I'm just dipping in to say what's up. I'm still here, though for now I'm not taking any more actions. Basically waiting on a ruling on my escape artist check and if the guards come around.


Male Tiefling Alchemist/3

So, thought I'd put a small list of languages together here...

Abyssal = Icelandic
Celestial = Hebrew
Common = English
Draconic = Latin
Infernal = Russian
Sylvan = Italian

That's all we've used so far. I'm thinking that if/when I start using Elven, it'll be French or Spanish (partially because those seem fluid enough for the elves, partially because they're similar to Italian, which we're using for Sylvan, and that similarity makes sense).

If there are any mistakes here, let me know and I'll edit.


Male Aasimar Oracle 2

If I ever get to the point of using Shadowtongue I'll use Serbian. Uses the same alphabet as Russian but is quite different.

Shadow Lodge

Male Half-elf Magus

You know, for a game without a GM this is one of the more active and interesting games i've seen.


I think we need to figure out a Plan B. For as much RP as we've got going here, we shouldn't let these characters languish for lack of a GM. I think instead of writing this off if Wolfman doesn't come back in a couple days, it would be OK for one of the co-GMs to just declare he's taking over. At least until Wolfman's return. Wolfman said his intent was sandbox, so if we go in some unexpected direction with the substitute, that should be expected anyways.
