Interesting. Apparently, the circlet of persuasion occupies the head slot while the various enhancement headbands are in their own (headband) slot. So then the question becomes +4 to two scores for 40,000 or +6 to one for 36,000?

Headbands are indeed their own, completely separate slot from the "head" slot. Pretty much the only things that GO in the headband slot are... well... headbands. And phylacteries. And that's it. It allows casters to get those much-needed stat boosters without crippling their ability to use awesome head slot items like a helm of telepathy.

I had it my head that the conflict was in effect and have exactly that effect on my selection. I'm still wondering about INT 24 or INT 22, CHA 18. The latter would boost a lot of skills I have invested in, but the former gives my spell casting a little more potency. I'm leaning toward the latter...

And maybe lots of scrolls after that.

Heads up.....home computer bit it. I'll be offline until the situation is handled; I doubt it will take long; maybe today even.

If I'm not on tonight, though, that's what's up.

FYI I am heading out to a gaming convention tomorrow, so my posting is likely to drop off considerably until probably Monday afternoon. Cheers!

Sorry for my continuing silence. I'm a bit stressed and busy and while I have some time to post, I've got a bit of writer's block - i.e. I don't have the space to think about what's going to happen next. The situation should resolve itself soon.

No reliable web until Monday night. Also I'm in Korea now. Npc me if need be, sorry for the absence

In Korea! Business traveler?


M Human

Yeah. 6 months

So, now that we're up and running again... where are we getting together in-game? Runzyl and Rolund have had some personal spirit quests indulged and now we're ready to come back into it with new stuff. The Farlowe/Frogshanks apartment, per usual?


We need to meet at the Spear of Dhakaan to give Marrius his cut. Then we can plan our next move.

Do we all have our new gear now?

Also, what does a dragonfang sword do? Apart from cutting up enemies, of course.

Qadira

You should have. Who's got a dragonfang sword?

Shadow Lodge

Huzzah! Equipment updated!

Rolund has a Wounding dragonfang. That sounds out-of-this-world scary. :D

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

Oooh, I hadn't really noticed. We'll let the man himself explain. Maybe it's just to piss off the dragon?

Cheliax RPG Superstar 2013 Top 32

Yup. Equipment all set. Falla Caesenri has lost the frost property in favor of furious on both ends! Combined with bumping the flat enhancement bonus to +2, that brings Caesenri to a frightening +4 weapon while enraged!

This means that even DR/adamantine is no match for the Valenar's twin blades!

Gil's got her larger purchases done, but she has quite a bit left for consumables that I haven't finished yet.

I believe it's a nonmagical enhancement that adds a single point of energy damage on hit. For example, a black dragonfang dagger would deal 1d4 normal damage + 1 point of acid damage.

oh wow i didnt know that +4 could negate adamantine. i always just thought that DR/adamantine was only beaten by adamantine

Yep. I'm glad Paizo incentivized simply adding higher enhancement bonuses to a weapon in this way, because rarely did you ever see a +2, +3, or higher weapon in 3.5. They were always +1 flaming frost shock holy speed... etc. etc. etc.


Fatey has it correct. It’s a nonmagical enhancement. However, I still haven’t decided what type of dragon the fang is from. My original premise was a fang from a fang dragon (found in the 3.0 Forgotten Realms MC – updated to 3.5 as a web enhancement). It would have fit perfectly with the wounding enhancement property since fang dragons inflict Constitution damage with their bites in lieu of a breath weapon. But I’m unsure if fang dragons exist on Eberron which led to my next idea.

The dragon fang could have belonged to Emerald Claw, Lady Vol’s draconic progenitor. If that is true, the dragonfang longsword would inflict a point of acid damage with each strike. A dragonfang from a fang dragon would not inflict any extra damage since the rules seem to imply only dragons who breathe energy (acid cold, electricity, or fire) can impart their energy to their fangs.

My third thought is a dragonfang from a shadow dragon which inflicts a point of negative energy damage similar to negative energy channel. But that would be up to Aubrey’s discretion.

The rules for dragonfang weapons can be found in the 3.5e Draconomicon.

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

I think a fang from the Emerald Claw would probably be an artefact, so that's probably a no. I'm not bothered what you choose other than that.

And I didn't know about the DR/adamantine thing either. I just assumed Fatey was happy with his +4 enhancement. Though it's all to the good since DR is Runzyl's big problem.

I'm back. I'll try to catch up over the next day or two.


M Human

think i lost my dot on most games, so i am posting again

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

The dots are pretty ephemeral and basically a bit useless. Ithers suggested going through the campiagns tab in your profile page and that seems a better way to find out if stuff is going on.


M Human

yes i was using my campaigns tab but i guess if you dont post in a week and a half or so it no longer updates you on that particular campaign via your campaign page. or it could have been just me. i thought it was just one game but i found out it happened in 3 others as well


M Human

and all the campaigns it happened to me in were in a lull period except this one, i just didnt post because it was time for shopping and Nevharath had spent his money up to that point already (having not been in the party when the money was earned)

Qadira

The headband will have 3 skills built in. Aubrey, if you will allow it Ez will specifically seek out one with Kn Local: Riedra. If an item like that does not exist for plot reasons or simply rarity I am fine with that, but as the story turns more and more towards the Quori and the Inspired being threats it only makes sense to learn as much as possible about the enemy. So he will try.

If I can designate the other two skills as well they will be acrobatics and linguistics.

EDIT: I see now that Sarlona is the whole continent and the nation of Riedra covers all of it. If we are splitting it into subsections of Kn Local like Khorvaire I would prefer-

An Eberron Wiki wrote:
Corvagura: The most populous of Riedra's provinces, Corvagura also has the largest number of building of hanbalani altas (ovoid monoliths).The cities of Corvagura, nestled among the wet southern jungles, have some of the most loyal citizens.

I eventually dropped the idea of the ectoplasmic rod. Rather than always being able to use only three spells I opted for 1 scroll of ethereal jaunt so that one encounter I can hit with ALL of my spells. I really only want that ability to fight Fougri rather than every day so it seems like a much more economical way to do it.

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

Not that happy about the Riedra stuff. Only really Nevharath would have access to that.

Grand Lodge

That's fine. It would be a difficult item to justify because anyone familiar enough with Riedra to craft such an item would probably end up getting assassinated, but you never know until you ask. assume Ez looked around until he was sure he wasn't going to find what he was looking for and then settled for plan b.

Are Sharn and Breland separate kn local skills?

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

Sharn would be separate - it's big enough for its own skill.

Grand Lodge

Okay I'll leave Ez with the original ranks in Breland that I had. Makes more sense that he studied enemy countries during the war. The new headband will have ranks in Sharn making him an insta-expert. Also acrobatics and linguistics. Specifically he'll want a headband that focuses on planar and outsider languages.

HEADBAND LANGUAGES: Abyssal, Kythric, Celestial, Syranian, Aquan, Auran, Terran, Ignan, Daelkyr, Daan, Risian.

If you think it is a bit much to swallow that I was so lucky as to find a headband that grants a selection of languages where none overlap with my own I'd be fine if you wanted to randomly roll for the 11 it contains now.

Headbands with built in skills feels like cyberpunk to me ;)

yeah unfortunately i dont have know:local so i am at DM mercy when it comes to what i know if we ever get there. the best i can do is know:psionics and know:history

I'll be around some today, then off on a little excursion til Tuesday night or Wednesday; also on call all of Thanksgiving weekend........will be around, unless I'm working or sleeping off a turkey gorging session.

Can I annoy you guys once more to say congratulations on hitting the 15,000 post mark on the game thread and on being so close to 5,000 posts on this one? 'Cause that's pretty impressive. Still reading this campaign avidly (though I really need to catch up, I'm a few months behind).

Okay, done being annoying. Back to lurking.

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

Cheers, KC, it's always gratifying to get positive comments from lurkers.


Forgot to tell you Aubrey, Rolund memorized Righteous Fury. The spell can be found in Spell Compendium p.77, if that's ok.

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

Sure, thanks for letting me know.

Grand Lodge

Aubrey, How did you feel about the languages of the headband?

Basically it boils down to, when a headband grants you a new rank of linguistics at each level does it:

1) allow you to choose a new language to go with your new rank?

-or-

2) grant you a preset language that the creator coded into the headband for each rank?

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

I suspect the latter, but in practice it probably works in game terms like the former. Let me know what languages you have in mind.

Grand Lodge

I was going for a planar suite:
HEADBAND LANGUAGES: Abyssal, Kythric, Celestial, Syranian, Aquan, Auran, Terran, Ignan, Daelkyr, Daan, Risian.

Grand Lodge

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Happy Thanksgiving ya'll. Hope its a good one.

Vattnisse> You and the missus do an ex-pat Thanksgiving? We have one but on the weekend so people can actually come over.

Qadira

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

That's OK.
