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.

Oh crap. This completely slipped my mind, but the Armigers are humans, aren't they? Then my Favored Enemy bonus should apply against them. Well, not gonna ask for a retcon, but at least now I know I can hit them better.

True. But might be better than stumbling with no idea.


Evil GM

You all decide on a course of action, there is a sword marking on the wall pointing down one of the tunnels. Not the tunnel one where the Armiger took off running.

I have an early morning, so its a night for me. Late morning and early afternoon are busy at work. I will try to post something in the morning, then later in the afternoon.


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

Ok, good night. I guess we follow the arrow after looting.


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

Shinon will take a masterwork longsword for himself, actually. He'll add his plain longsword to the party loot to be sold later. But for now, anything to help me in melee.

I assume no one objects to this?


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

No objections I will make the adjustment.

If I get to 3rd level, I am considering taking Scribe Scroll and load up on cures.

Why not just take Extra Channel? Isn't Channeling better because it scales with your level and you get to use it on multiple characters at once?


Male Human Fighter(Tower Shield Specialist) 6/ Hellknight 2 +5 int, AC 26, Touch 12, FF 25, Fort +8, Ref +4, Will +5 HP66/82, Perception +12

Scribe scroll will let her scribe other spells then just cure spells.


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

Extra Channel can indeed be good. It depends on what kind of channeling and who you use it on *cough*

Oh, that's right. You don't channel positive energy, do you? My bad.

Scribe Scroll is a good investment then. As one of the guys who will be directly benefiting from your group of scrolls, thanks.

Edit: Reread your previous post, saw that you were only considering, not decided. So, in that case I say I think it's a good idea but I would not be surprised if something else struck your fancy instead.


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

Well scribe scroll and selective channel, so I can bomb the breathers and not singe you folks.

I think you might need a higher Charisma score before that becomes a viable strategy for you, since Selective Channel only lets you exclude a number of creatures equal to your Charisma modifier.

Time to start saving for those magic items! :)

Baldwin. I am in a Godsmoth Heresy adventure at Dm Idyll is using something called dropbox to post pics. Here is the link, perhaps you can chat Idyll up about it.

Evil GM

Andrea - blasphemy that you find the time to be in another game. I will look into dropbox too.


Evil GM

Testing drop box

4 Way Juncture

This was the juncture from lst night BUT i changed the water flow and had the walkway rather than the water next to the doorway. I had it jog over right where the wood planks are located.


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

Hey, it has been a long time since I have ever gamed, so I need to make up for lost time. :)

The pic came up good.


Evil GM

How long since you gamed Andrea? Are you in any RL games or are you only in PbP?


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

Only in PbP. I attempted an Iron Heroes conversion runthrough with someone I now in a chat channel. (SOlo play with a commando type) but he was so busy with college he had to stop,

Back around 8:30 EDT.

I did not like the remaining sewer encounters the AP had, so I took some creative liberties for a bit of challenge.


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

Should Duncan post a few actions for his character when things go pear-shaped?


Evil GM

Sure, a perception check and one potential combat round. He tends to be on in the evening...its still the morning and afternoon there.


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

Rats. Perhaps I will get Filth Fever and have blessed visions from the Goddess. ;)


Evil GM

If a few others are around to provide some direction for the party, I will begin to post the next series of events.


Evil GM

Andrea the picture link to dropbox worked well?


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

Yes.


Evil GM

Andrea - How is the pace with your other games?


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

The Godsmouth one is in a lull right now until the other players chime in, but it is going well.


Evil GM

As a side note, the sewer adventure of this AP was written with several skirmishes and combat encounters. Are there too many combat encounters for the gourp right now? I'm trying to gauge what you all want. At my gaming table we role play quiet a bit typically 65-35. It looks like there are some role playing opportunities written in, I will add to those if you want after you get to he surface.


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

I am not feeling overwhelmed by the combat. I feel confident of the group to get us through but was taking this response from what I believe is a Rping encounter. Andrea is more concerned about getting skewered by the hellknights than what soemone else is doing down in the sewers. If the rest of the group rolls into combat I'll throw in, but please do not taunt grumpy Pit Fiend.

Actually my request isn't really about this encounter , its more from a general gaming point of view.

I'm partial to Chain Devils at these early level rather than Pit Fiends. Laughing


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

Probably a bit more Rping/Sneaking around and such. Combat is fun but I am a little wary of big ones where there are huge numbers of people/effcts to keep track off. Skirmishes are good like having running fights with small squads and of course the final fight with the BBEG.
A good thing about Rping and more skill rolls is it lets you to get more milage out of the skills you thought were a good concept for your character. My Godsmouth character is a rebellous daughter of a mafia golem-maker clan and has rofue skills along with engineering, sculpting and metalworking skills as she wants to learn how to make golems.


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

How do John and Shinon feel about getting into combat?(Along with Kenji and Duncan) If you want to fight I won't hold you back.


Male Human Fighter(Tower Shield Specialist) 6/ Hellknight 2 +5 int, AC 26, Touch 12, FF 25, Fort +8, Ref +4, Will +5 HP66/82, Perception +12

John only gets into combat if he is defending himself, or he believes his opponent is a criminal.


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

Any critiques on how we run our characters and interact with each other? How am I doing? I hope I am not stealing the limelight here.


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

I too was hoping to do quite a bit of RP. I kind of like this foreigner concept I designed for myself. It will be fun to see how I can adapt to the party when we really have a chance for discussion. Kenji understands common a lot better than he speaks it. Just funny that way.


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

kenji is a good character. I do have some trouble at times understanding , but I guess that is part of the concept.


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

Kenji is good yeah. I just wish he was around more, but I guess that's just Andrea and John and I being online more than Duncan and Kenji. Sorry about that.

I like Shinon's character too. It's a lot of fun to play someone who is paranoid to the point of being unstable (and virtually clueless when it comes to women).

I hope to see more of Andrea's personality as well. As it stands she's been pretty straightforward, just reacting to each situation as it comes, but I haven't seen anything unique about her yet. Hope that she gets more chances to show herself off.


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

Hopefully there won't be a need for me to eat anyone's face. ;)

Of course being unique means revealing more that others would be uncomfortable with. :)

More serious I am aiming a kind of reserved character outwardly since she masqerades as a Pharesian(sp) The kind that would daintily eat her meal while the ghouls around her chow down. She isn't an ice queen though and I hope to be able to work the kinks out as we keep going.


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

There are times I can be on more than others. I spent the entire day today with friends. Sorry if I am not glued to a computer at all times, as much as I like these games, I like my personal time just as much. I keep up with my 3 posts a day minimum.

only issue I have with Kenji is he's not very social. Had I known this game was going to be very post heavy, I'd've busted out one of my more animated characters like Gan Laccaran. Now theres a talker. Would have done the whole Urban ranger concept, but alas, Kenji is what I picked so serves me right.


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

No sweat on hanging with friends, I am on a lot in the evenings since I have that time slot free. Once we get out of the sewers we can all be properly introduced I think that our characters still don't know everyone's names. :)
I'm willing to cut back on posting so Kenji doesn't get overwhelmed by all the chatter, plus it helps those like Duncan since he has RL duties as well.

Edit: I'm with Shinon I enjoy your posts, sorry for any misunderstanding.


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

Oh, no, I didn't mean to insult you Kenji. Not at all. Your posting amount is fine.


Male Dwarf Warrior 1/Inquisitor 4 (Witchunter) Int+4, F6, R1, W4, +4 vs Spells/PoisonAC19/T12/FF17, HP46/4663/67 when raging

This is definately the fastest paced game I am in. But pretty sure i've been good for about 4/day.

I love rp but combat is awesome (mostly cause I'm always chasing that next level)


Evil GM

I think eveyone is posting fine and certainly more than the 3-5, I requested during the recruitment. I simply don't want the game to tamper off because of inactivity. Everyone has RL, so no worries about being glued to the computer.

Everyone's character's personality is emerging. I think it's good that you were all recruited, but not really able to get each other's names when thrown into a life or death escape. Once the sewer adventure is over, there will be time to introduce and talk amonst yourself and more of the overall recruitment process will become evident.

I will make sure that I add in a bit more RP scenarios, then what is in the AP.


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

More RP is always good. After all, if I wanted to walk around slaying monsters all day with a bit of interesting personal interaction on the side, I'd turn on my PS2 and play some .hack//GU. ...I think I might do that anyway, now that I've thought about it.

Anyway, I always prefer the RP scenarios to be closely balanced with the combat scenarios, as combat tends to take longer. Then again, this isn't a four-hour session at a table, so it's not like I'm pressed for time to roleplay.

And after seeing that we're under duress from hellknights on our tail, and these guys are actually competent in a fight, I'm pretty relieved we opted for the Parlay route. If Shinon had tried to take these guys out in melee while dealing nonlethal, he probably would have been slaughtered.

How do we go about identifying those potions anyway?


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

Andrea can memorise a Identify spell as part of her domain magic

Wait, but identify is just detect magic with a +10 bonus to the check. So we can use detect magic to identify these potions? I mean, you can cast that at-will right? Or someone can. That way you wouldn't need to use your Domain slot, at least.
