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.

Evil GM

Andrea I understand what your intent is but the the AP rules are pretty specific. However, you all do see the others are getting much more intoxicated and glutinous, so there are other wasys to avoid drinking and eating.


Evil GM

I'm going to be offline for a couple house.


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

Orsin or someone else. Try to find the Majordomo so we can aim Orsin at her with his poetry and butter her up so we can make things easier

Are we sure she likes guys yet? Andrea may still have to take that hit for the team. :P


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

Well it might be a light slap depending on how she looks.


Female Half Elf Urban Ranger / 7 and Wizard / 1 and Arcane Archer / 1 -- Perception: +18 in urban, +21 traps (otherwise +16) -- Init: +4 -- HP:49/59 -- AC: 23(Touch:15 / FF:19) -- F:7, R:11, W:5 +2vs enchants

I know Lucrezia's thinking she'd rather be whipped by John than hit the mayor, but she'll do whatever's necessary.


Evil GM

reading comments now...will be replying soon


Female Half Elf Urban Ranger / 7 and Wizard / 1 and Arcane Archer / 1 -- Perception: +18 in urban, +21 traps (otherwise +16) -- Init: +4 -- HP:49/59 -- AC: 23(Touch:15 / FF:19) -- F:7, R:11, W:5 +2vs enchants

I think there may be some interesting scenes with Andrea and Lucrezia later on...


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

Or maybe I'm just teasing/trolling. ;) Andrea teases friends and takes 'no' perfectly well. Maybe she should see if she can make Duncan smile.


Female Half Elf Urban Ranger / 7 and Wizard / 1 and Arcane Archer / 1 -- Perception: +18 in urban, +21 traps (otherwise +16) -- Init: +4 -- HP:49/59 -- AC: 23(Touch:15 / FF:19) -- F:7, R:11, W:5 +2vs enchants

Duncan can smile?


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

We might have to make a perception check to make sure. DC on finding Duncan's smile?


Female Half Elf Urban Ranger / 7 and Wizard / 1 and Arcane Archer / 1 -- Perception: +18 in urban, +21 traps (otherwise +16) -- Init: +4 -- HP:49/59 -- AC: 23(Touch:15 / FF:19) -- F:7, R:11, W:5 +2vs enchants

Oh that has to at least be a dc 20.


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

30 actually. Long mo. Nobody sees his lips move when he talks


Evil GM

You are missing parts of the beard so there may be some upper lip.


Evil GM

I'm going to call it night, I have early day my daughter has a swim meet early in the morning.

Lucrezia have safe trip tomorrow.


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

Night night. Perhaps we can RP with each other. Can we get John to say more than one sentance? :)


Female Half Elf Urban Ranger / 7 and Wizard / 1 and Arcane Archer / 1 -- Perception: +18 in urban, +21 traps (otherwise +16) -- Init: +4 -- HP:49/59 -- AC: 23(Touch:15 / FF:19) -- F:7, R:11, W:5 +2vs enchants

Thank you. :)

We'll be starting Saturday night so the little ones get to sleep through the first part. So I'll still be checking regularly during the day.

I think the DC to get John to say more than one sentence likely equals the one to see Duncan smile. :)


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

So do we want to take on Oberigo's proposel to find the Knot? Sicne we are looking for it anyway.


Female Half Elf Urban Ranger / 7 and Wizard / 1 and Arcane Archer / 1 -- Perception: +18 in urban, +21 traps (otherwise +16) -- Init: +4 -- HP:49/59 -- AC: 23(Touch:15 / FF:19) -- F:7, R:11, W:5 +2vs enchants

Sure, why not? :)


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

sweet. of course i will be sure to get the details


Evil GM

Of the 353 PbP games listed it looks like we are now in the top 14, congrats. The rate in which we hit that mark was insane.

As an FYI you are now half way through book II of this AP.


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

Don't worry Lucrezia, Andrea has some nice lotion for your bruises.


Evil GM

Andrea is jealous round two of the whipping hasn't happened yet


Female Half Elf Urban Ranger / 7 and Wizard / 1 and Arcane Archer / 1 -- Perception: +18 in urban, +21 traps (otherwise +16) -- Init: +4 -- HP:49/59 -- AC: 23(Touch:15 / FF:19) -- F:7, R:11, W:5 +2vs enchants

Maybe some oil and a nice massage to work out the soreness?


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

No doubt Broken-Tusk would fall over himself for the chance. :)


Evil GM

I'm going out for the night ,chat tomorrow.


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

Something I am planning on asking Janiven later is just how she knew who I used to worship. Our first scene had her say 'A tithe for Urgathoa.' since Westcrown discourages open worship of non Asmodeus types, I wonder if they broken into my apartment and found my gear.


Evil GM

I am glad that I discovered how to the the fog of war feature on maptools, it makes mapping a lot easier for me.

I needed something that would get your attention and interest.


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

Oh yes, I know you needed a hook, Andrea just wants to clear the air between them.


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

Just a little something that has been on my mind, the botting of Tweaker
makes me want to bring it up.

First, I will always love the fast clip of the game having a dedicated group like this is amazing and Baldwin has been doing awesome. I do think that it can be a little too fast paced though. We've slammed through half of the module already at an even quicker pace than the first module AFAIK, and look to be able to finish the second half in the same amount of time, we might be able to wrap up the entire AP this way!

Perhaps we should set up some guidelines about botting? We have demonstrated that we can post at least once a day so easing up on the gas won't hurt us any, if someone does plan to step away for some time we can give suggestions on what we will do in combat/non-combat situations.

I am very willing to help arrange things and will make take the first step by making sure to note when I plan on being absent for any length of time. for example.

Going to sleep. Back in 6+ hours

How do the others feel?


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

Back, decided to have home delivary.

Just a Glyph of Warding question. Can I set it to certain people? The rules were a little iffy. Say I want to ward my apartment and set it for Me,Fiosa and Emily. I was also thinking of putting one on the safehouse for all the CoW.

If you describe their physical conditions in enough detail you could set the glyph up that way. The child grows and that could be an issue though. A password is simple enough.


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

Sleepies for 8 hours


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

Okies, once Duncan and Tweaker find the right mirror(Hopefully with little to no servants clubbed) How shall we procede? We can get in and at least do a little scouting, I doubt we will be able to find it the first go but should get a fair amount mapped.

When we need to retreat, we should figure out ways to extend things. If we can get it to three days, we can hopefully finish up. Such as getting the staff from the Grotto to entertain.


Evil GM

I should on line most the night.


Evil GM

Andrea I was hoping you'd be a bit more specific with the augury question.


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

How so? I've always thought Augury to be rather vague due to the low level. So 'Will searching the other wing help us find the mirror tot he knot'? Seemed specific enough.


Evil GM

Remind me when you find the mirror.

---
The group didn't sit down and chat together about all the pieces of information that they received from the various individuals/sources. That will undoubtedly make this a long process unless you all stumble upon it.


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

Well believe I passed along the information that I recived at least.

So how can we keep this from getting too tedious?

1.Assign a number of rolls to Tweaker and Duncan representing how their search goes through the mansion. Say they need to roll in each 'section' for example 'Main hall,Guest wing, Staff Wing,etc' Stealth and Perception. Failure represents an enouncter with a noble or servant.

2.Of the ones staying behind, Only Lucrezia has a good stealth score. Orsin can detect magic and they can travel via invisibility for a while as they check another area using the same 'challenge rolls'

3. As I said, I suggested various ways we can extend our stay in case we can't find the mirror: reinactment of the Trials, invite musicians/hookers and such. Perhaps Charisma checks to see if we can extend our stay by another day.

It just depends how how we want to do this. I would hate for us to fail and thus have to go back to the original plan,'Break in'.


Evil GM

Right now it is not about the length of time in the house. You have all evening and well into the the next day at the very least. The vast majority of the people are too drunk to notice much. You do have security and servants around but it is the middle of the night now.

Rather than running in separate directions, put the clues together and come up with game plan for the search. I don't mind going room by room but those not involved with the room searches are going to be bored for the foreseeable future. This mansion has over 50 rooms.

What do you all know about the house and its residents, so far?

Put a list together and make some deductions.


Evil GM

Lucrezia how far have you made it?

Make sure you stop in Cawker City, Kansas to see the world's biggest ball of Twine if you are sightseeing. Lol.


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

1.The Majordomo is a wallflower, love poetrys and has main control fo the house

2.The mayor also will no doubt have access to the Knot, if we can pinch his house keys we can get around easier.

3,There was a brief image of a devil seen in the sky ceiling.

4.The lights flicker due to spirits?(Check out what powers the lights and where?)

5.The woman the mayor was talking to who announced us wa sprobably the majordomo

6.The main areas to the Manor; The main house(3 floors), The Knot which serves as the vault and the Nessian Spiral that even the mayor stays away from and serves as a dungeon

7.There is supposedly a sick deformed son of the mayor in a secret room in the attic

8.There is supposedly a pit find imprisoned under the manor.In the Nessian Spiral?

9.As we know, the Knot is acessed by a special mirror

10. I believe some of the rose bushes have maggots in them? Plus the thorns are bleeding A clue to check out?

Anyone else have ideas? The lights might be a clue, perhaps if we find the source, we can find a conenction tot he mirror.

The maggots in the rose bushes might be due to influence from the Knot, so we might want to look there for mirrors.


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

So Lucreazia and Orsin could check out the Mayor's room, The room of Honey and the attic. Andrea is woefully unstealgthy but I can be a look out and provide invisibility magic.

Any objections if I turn invisible and see if the Mayor has keys on him? he is dead drunk so I should be able to do it, as well as geta looka round the room of honey.


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

I don't mind.

My real life low wis is not putting those togethersave i think the deformed son bears investigation.


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

So if Duncan and Tweaker come back, we can send them up to check the attic or search out the Majordomo/Mayor's rooms. Perhaps that is best since running randomly just won't get things done.


Evil GM

I forgot to drop the map on my thumb drive, so I won't be able to reveal new areas explored until I get home from the office.


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

I am awake, be a little spotty until evening but I will check in.


Evil GM

I'll be online later. Off to dinner.


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

Ready and able for finding the mirror. How about we Rp some?
