Baldwin the Merciful's - CoT Campaign (Inactive)

Game Master baldwin the merciful

This is Council of Thieves AP. Westcrown, City of Twilight, once was the center of Aroden's faith, but now it symbolizes despair. By day, the city remains a vibrant center of trade; but, by night only those with a death wish venture out.

And you have the gall to tell me to be submissive? Oh your askin fer it buddy. Yeah Kenji is untrustworthy. He's been up front about everything and yet Janiven had to seduce us to get us in her little club.

I (NeoSeraphi) personally find Kenji's character to be upfront, honest, and all around likable. Shinon, on the other hand, has a really really hard time trusting others.

Janiven gets a pass because she has shown Shinon that she really cares about the city the same way he does (also he has a crush on her, and that's interfering with his constant paranoia).

Andrea gets a pass because she's touched Shinon multiple times already (against his will) and has not used these touches to harm him once yet. Shinon begrudgingly reasons that if she wanted to kill him, she had plenty of opportunity, especially when they were alone together on the trip back.

Kenji can probably earn Shinon's trust as well, he'll just have to be patient and keep being Kenji.

Quote:


This could be entertaining. Does Shinon have a thing for Janiven? Is he gonna compete with Kenji for her affections? BRING IT! Nothins got more charm than a Asian accent with a charisma of 8 haha!

Shinon does indeed have a thing for Janiven, though from what we've seen so far, I believe it is one-sided.

Bah! Both of you have nothing on me! I have 14 CHA and a Diplomacy of 8! Bonus! I'm not picky and will try all sorts of stuff.


Evil GM

Shinon - regarding your noble friend Traine. I'm going to have him as minor noble that is beholden to Rosala family. Actually his family is tied to the Atenaar family lines. He is not related to the Atenaar family but his family is tied/beholden to Atenaar family. Sort of three or four steps removed from the beholden house. In otherwords, Traine knows of Rosala family but the Rosala's may not know Traine directly. Nor does he have any direct access to the Rosala family. From a protocol viewpoint Traine's access is to Atenaar family and even that is tenuous at times.

From a Nobility tree stand point you have Rosala on top. Branching out with two direct beholden families Ulavauno and Atenaar. Then the Ulavauno and Atenaar have branches. Traine's family is three or four steps removed from the Atenaar family branch.

Don't worry, Shinon is open-minded, and is certainly willing to share Janiven with Andrea if Andrea is willing to share Fiosa...;)


Evil GM

There are other NPCs...haha. What about Tarvi, Amaya, Mathalen or Yakopulio....lol.

They might make excellent Rangers,Fighters and Inquisitors! John and Shinon have yet to choose apprentices.

I think Larko is supposed to be mine, but his character is so quiet that it's kind of hard for Shinon to actually notice him.

Edit: Also, lol, so Andrea is willing to try all sorts, just not men, huh?

Shinon has given Larko a cold shoulder, so he has not opened up. Not every NPC is a chatterbox either.

Actually, that's not true. A few pages back, I tried to start a conversation with Larko...I think you missed the post though. Either way, Shinon has attempted, at least once, to talk with Larko and Larko has not responded. I will search out the post now.

About two hours after Janiven returns, Shinon carefully makes his way to the temple, doing his best to not be seen or heard. He quietly sneaks into the temple, and blinks in surprise. "Oh, hello Janiven. When did you get back?" he asks.

Glancing around, Shinon sees everyone safe and sound. He sighs in relief and takes a seat next to Larko. "So, you've had your first taste of battle. How do you feel now? Are you okay?" he asks the quiet man.

Shinon wrote:
"Well yes, but this temple isn't that far off the main road, and there are quite a lot of us, Larko. Eventually, someone is bound to hear something. And if they report noise disturbances to the Dottari, the Dottari will come investigate. Technically, all of us are guilty of trespassing, at the very least (our guilt of treason notwithstanding)," Shinon points out. "I'd rather not get involved with the Dottari, they're good people who only want to protect this city, same as us."

Edit: Both posts are from page 20 of the IC thread.

Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/6 Init +4 HP 93/93 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F14,R7,W18Per+19

Well I COULD go the 'Seduce and break her in mind and body so she pledges herself to the Pallid Princess' route but that would fall into the 'Give the Hellknights the Plague' catagory that Baldwin reminded us of.

Actually, I think forcibly converting someone to your faith because you believe he or she is on the wrong path is more Lawful Neutral than Evil.


Evil GM

Andrea- its in the Pathfinders chronicles: Gods and Magic. Its a small nuances between both Gods of Death. It concerns the creation of undead.

"If the other deities would just leave her alone to feed her
needs, Urgathoa would have no enemies, but Pharasma and
Sarenrae pursue her and her kind wherever they are found,
so she reciprocates this attention." Gods and Magic page 40. It's ok that you don't have the book.

While Pharasma positon is: "She opposes undeath as a desecration of the memory of the flesh and a corruption of a soul’s path on its journey to her judgment." Gods of Magic page 30.

It should make for a nice little challnge for Andrea.


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/6 Init +4 HP 93/93 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F14,R7,W18Per+19

Well I have a few ideas for RP that can come out of this. Andrea is planning on doing some self-flagellation back home as penance for getting so interested in Fiosa. Things to consider.

Kenji's not much of a people person. He respects his fellows but isn't one for conversation. The admiration of Mathelen caught him a bit off guard and he is willing to train her but his romantic attention is on Janiven and this will not likely change as long as she responds well to his attempts. There may as well be no other options at this point. Kind of shallow think but Kenji wasn't really designed to be a cassanova.

If Janiven should perish or simply turn down Kenji, I believe he would stay single the rest of the game and be fine with that.

Noooo! Janiven can't die! She's way too awesome. I like her character, and Baldwin roleplays her really well. If she dies, I think we should try and get her rezzed. What do you guys think?


Male Human(Minkakian) Martial Artist lvl 2 (Int +4) (AC17)

I am torn on that one. I do like her character but death kind of makes an interesting plot device.

I vote for a no kill. Theres enough plot without her dying. Would love the opportunity to rescue her though =)


Male Half-Elf Urban Ranger 3 HP 25/29, Initiative +5, AC 16, Touch 13, FF 13 CMD 16 Fort +4 Ref +6 Will +2

I foresee Shinon's current decision going very poorly. I feel like I'm watching a movie and yelling "Don't go in there, you idiot!"


Evil GM

I like Janiven, I don't generally think of killing any PC or NPC, but deaths do occur. I generally just like to keep it open-ended and provide numerous options out there. Two or three folks can be interested in one NPC.

Rescue ...who knows there may be a opportunity. We just did a rescue, so some other distressed situation.

I only mentioned the other female NPC's to remind folks there are lots of other options out there and folks to interact with. Plus, you are not limtied to those folks. Just creating layers of intrigue.


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/6 Init +4 HP 93/93 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F14,R7,W18Per+19

Whoops, there goes Andrea again, I wonder how many lashes she is going to need after this..


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/6 Init +4 HP 93/93 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F14,R7,W18Per+19

Also, Andrea is getting into inebriated, something that might also work since she would, on the surface, claim that she isn't used to so much wine while remembering the 'party till you puke' celebrations at her church.


Evil GM

Duncan hoping you are really disliking Thesing Ulvaud by now.

Thesing is a jackass! Let's all hate him! Party unity for the win.

Also, Kenji is slowly becoming one smooth operator.


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/6 Init +4 HP 93/93 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F14,R7,W18Per+19

Man this might be better than the main adventure path!


Male Human(Minkakian) Martial Artist lvl 2 (Int +4) (AC17)

I don't even know if were actually following the main adventure path. Course...I know nothing about this particular campaign, thats kind of why I made Kenji, I was just too lazy to read the players guide at the time. Thanks for letting me in.


Evil GM

Funny...there is the main adventure path but the side adventures are a blast. It gives the characters time to develop rather than hop from on event to the next one. That is what I like about the Kingmaker AP, it is so open ended, and CoT is ripe for side adventures.


Male Half-Elf Urban Ranger 3 HP 25/29, Initiative +5, AC 16, Touch 13, FF 13 CMD 16 Fort +4 Ref +6 Will +2

Duncan, looks like we've got a very good reason to go back into those sewers and find out just what was in that room that those guys were blocking. Are you ready to lack a divine smackdown on those guys?

Look like there is a potentially easily manipulated noble person there. bad table manners but hey, a possible in into the house.


Evil GM

I think the only open conversation is John's with the dottari guards. This should leaving everyone to basically meet back a the safehouse to talk to Arael and Janiven the next evening. To share information and plan a course of action.

The pace is still fine? It slowed down a touch this past week with work, learning maptools and being under the weather, but it still seems to be hitting a steady clip.

That sounds like a good plan, assuming that Andrea can still walk tomorrow. After the dreams she's going to have tonight I doubt this is the last time she's going to flail herself...

By the way, what does the token that Chelsi handed Shinon look like? (A feather token, a swan token, a tree token, a boat token?)


Evil GM

Andrea:

Andrea:
interesting prayer ceramony. I like when the clerics really play out their deity, rahter than I wake up and get my spells. I had player in my Kingmaker table top who was a Torag disciple and he prayed at morning's first light with his anvil and hammer, load of laughter. The party's human spellcaster had to negotiate an additonal hour of sleep from him.

The token is a small pewter coin, with the swan on one side and three crates on the other.

** spoiler omitted **

Thanks. I'm thinking of another letter to her mother talking about how she doesn't know if everything will work out, how the instructor wouldn't approve either, but that she remembers her lessons and will use that special gift whenever she feels weak.

Edit ^^ Well that was also her doing a little self-punishment for getting close to a priest of an opposing faith.(In Andrea's mind, it was appropriate. Since she would never assume/presume that Urgathoa would ever be ok with that. better sore than sorry.) Normal praying is sans whipping. AFAIK.

Editx2. Although if she worshipped Z-K, whipping would happen all the time. ;)

Editx3. Also try to find out if anyone ahs seen the shadow beasts or what they can do. Lvl 2s vs potential end game critters? Nope.avi

nope.
