Baldwin the Merciful's - CoT Campaign

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.

Appreciate the effort


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

Sorry for not posting much, I fell ill yesterday and have been struggling with fatigue and sleeping a lot. My character is not updated because I have not had access to my PC for some time and I cannot update from my phone. I will try to update my profile later tonight but I can post in the IC thread in about an hour to hour and half. There is a lot of reading I need to do to catch up.

Can someone give me a summery of whats going on and where I am? That'd save me some time. 20 something posts is a lot to read.


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/5 Init +4 HP 5/86 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F13,R6,W17 Per+18

Some details..

We decided to ambush. Duncan and John are on the west side behind some trees/bushes and John/Andrea on the east side hiding as well(John posted a map link so you can see the battle map and check where everyone is and where you want your token to be placed).
We put some wooden caltrops(Something we need to start carrying along with a hand axe) on the west side of the bridge to hinder any horses trying to go through. I believe the plan is to wait until the caravan gets to the middle of the bridge and then pincer attack.

12 guards visable on the outside.

3 Guards in front of the prison wagon on horses
2 guards riding along the sides of the wagon
2 guards on top of wagon with balista
3 Guards behind
2 drivers


Evil GM

Interesting that you did not wait till the carriage on the bridge to attack to box it in.


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/5 Init +4 HP 5/86 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F13,R6,W17 Per+18

I beg ignorance that Shinon was launching his attack asap.


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

Where's the map link? Put me somewhere behind so I can attack from the rear. I have a +7 to stealth if need be. That'll do for now. I will make sure to post when my turn is up but until I get a good night sleep tonight, I won't be very active today. Too dang tired and the migraine makes information hard to process.

John posted the marked up map: Gamethread, pg 15, 6th from the bottom.

Sorry you are sick. We are entering combat. I did asked John to post you south of the road but ont he east side of the river. In a copse of trees with the npc, Rizzardo. Rizzardo's job was to stop fleeing guard to the south of the roadway.

It is your turn in the surprise round I will have you hold your action.

Me too..I was just playin a lone bum to get in charge range.


Evil GM

Duncan initiative is to you. Time for battle and some posting.


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

So I am with the guy south of the bridge on the east side of the river? Okay that works. I will move in when he does.

Yes you are. You are next to a NPC.


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

I'm going to update my profile before I go to bed tonight. I am likely to sleep in for quite some time tomorrow. So presume the following actions out of me and NPC me where they fit.
Actions I am likely to take:

1. Move and attack closest foe.
2. Where I can get it, Flurry of Blows, I am at a +4 to hit with each attack.
3. I my health is dropped by half, I make a withdraw action followed by a potion. I have four potions and 17 HP
4. If Charge or flank is ever an option, I take it.
5. If Janiven is ever dropped or close to it and I am able, I will move to her aid.
That is all.

So if you need to NPC me those are the actions I'm like to take.
If it is communicated to me in game, I would abide by another character's tactical requests.

Hope that helps to keep the game moving while I'm unconscious. Thanks. Like I said I will update my profile in a bit before bed.

Kenji, good stuff there. Gives me a lot to work with if people start to post tonight. I would like to run through a couple rounds tonight.

Feel better.


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/5 Init +4 HP 5/86 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F13,R6,W17 Per+18

Rest well. Hopefully we can get them pinned .


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/5 Init +4 HP 5/86 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F13,R6,W17 Per+18

Ugh. Looks like they are going to circle the wagons, thus turning this into 'Kill them all'.


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

I have updated my profile and am heading to bed. Feeling the way I do I likely won't wake up for around twice the usual recommended hours of sleep.

Fight sounds bad. Try not to get Kenji killed and he does not often worry about provoking attacks of opportunity as he has Mobility and that adds a +4 to his AC when he provokes due to movement.


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

This is going to be fun.

It is all fun and games until someone eats a crit.

Ya know, this game has actually inspired me to write up a story based reason for getting a raise/ressurection if/when things go pear shaped. A little quick-fic that hopefully I won't need to pull out, but one never knows.


Evil GM

Excellent map John. Just so everyone know there is another guard on the map at Z105. So there are guards at Y105 and Z105. Everyone should have an idea of the scene.

Since Janiven is a the end of the I will ahve some of her NPC crew go on her turn too rahter than roll in separate initiatives.

Also, I have busy morning outside of the office and away from the computer, so I won't be on until around noonish EDT.


Evil GM

It is Kenji's turn, lets see if he is feeling better and checks in to make the move.


Evil GM

Has the overall pace been ok with everyone? I Kenji games on Sunday's, so I did slow it down a touch. I understand Duncan's across the globe too.

Overall, the activity level on this thread has been impressive, I'm sure we will hit 800 posts in two weeks. Just don't want the game to fizzle out.


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

The pace is great, keep it up if possible.

On another note, I have to do some scouting today for a job in a town I'm moving to later this summer. I'll be gone all day, should be back around 9 PM my time. Will post now and again when I get home.


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/5 Init +4 HP 5/86 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F13,R6,W17 Per+18

Pace has been whizzing along, good to see we are getting things done.

SHinon, looks like it is HtH time so drawing your sword will help negate that nasty -4 penalty.


Evil GM

Tonight is my RL gaiming night, so I will be gone till after 10pm EDT.


Evil GM

I have meeting I need to run to, I will provide the RD2 recap after and we can begin round 3.


Evil GM

John Rd 3's map is excellent.


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

Thanks. Now that every one is pretty much on one side of the bridge now, I can zoom in on the map and it will be easier to read.


Evil GM

Kenji you were cursed by the bad initiative Gods this entire campaign, so far. It seems as if you are usually towards the end of round.


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/5 Init +4 HP 5/86 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F13,R6,W17 Per+18

But coming last isn't all that bad, he can do things like rescue someone who was downed earlier in the round.

Also, things to buy in the future..

Handaxe
Caltrops
Hammer and chisel for those difficult doors
crowbar
rope
10' pole
Sunrods
alchemist's fire
saps (Get over here John :)
Thief tools


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

Add sap's to that list, at least for those proficient.


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 have Disable Device! And I even get Trapfinding next level. So yeah, we don't need a rogue. Urban rangers for the win.


Evil GM

Good night everyone. Good battle, even though the Armigers are somewhat cowardly. Although, I did beef up the stats on 4 of them, only one saw any of the real combat. The one Shinon was fighting with the heavy mace.


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/5 Init +4 HP 5/86 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F13,R6,W17 Per+18

101 gp
203 sp
121 cp
Signet ring
Pretty shell
goblin's chapbook (10 gp)
7 iron trade bars (10 gp each)
33 ramhead copper coins
Box (25 gp)
Silver signet ring
3 diamond chips (12 gp,17 gp,27 gp)
topaz ring worth 24 gp
IOU worth 35 gp
15 CLW potions
1 MW Longsword
3 Chainshirts
6 Longswords
6 daggers
Heavy mace
Crossbow
Short bow and 20 arrows

So it looks like the armory of La Resistance will be getting a boost


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/5 Init +4 HP 5/86 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F13,R6,W17 Per+18

Good night. Time to get the party ready for everyone. I was actually pretty nervous there.


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

With a +4 initiative I thought I would be a bit faster. I guess the dice don't like me in this game. Such is life.


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/5 Init +4 HP 5/86 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F13,R6,W17 Per+18

Bit of a conundrum I am in. I am thinking of Andrea noticing one of the downed Armingers is clinging to life and finishing him off with Bleeding Touch.. Hmm...Woudld that be perfectly in character do you think for her?


Evil GM

Andrea - I just noticed that you did not put the value on shell, signet rings or copper Ram head coins. I did provide the valuations when the group was in the safehouse. I think both Msw longswords were claimed: John and Shinon, possibly.


Evil GM

Everyone received 1200XP for the rescue encounter. Everyone's total XP now is 3200. Duncan I saw yours was list at 3500, can your adjust that.

Not bad considering that encounter was designed to split the armigers into two separate groups which would have been a much lower CR. However the group was not split and it made the CR encounter significantly higher.

Andrea - One of the Armiger's is wounded severely but not dead. I will let you and the player's RP that out and their reactions.

I don't see any reason why I can't keep this pace up at least in the immediate future. I have a family vacation in July, we should be well into the second AP book by then. Work does on occassion keep me from posting but there will be plenty of notice.

John - this is the post that made me think Shinon drew his sword yesterday to engage in hand to hand combat. I knew that I read something about it, it just wasn't Shinon who mentioned it.

Lol! I love Shinon's reaction. Priceless. Roughly translated Kenji was trying to say he trusts John, Janiven, and even Arael to help him keep an eye on the rookies. He did wish Shinon luck and safety but Kenji is better at understanding common, not speaking it. Shinon's interpretation is perfect. This foreigner thing is real easy to play out with desirable results. Still, I wonder why Janiven likes Kenji....or if she even really does at all. Maybe she's just playing with his head. Can't wait to see how that turns out. Lol.

Shinon, is Janiven messing with your emotions as much as she is messing with Kenji's? I get the hint you gotta a thing for her.


Human, NPC

Kenji and Shinon will just have to wait with baited breath.


Evil GM

Shinon and Kenji what a great conversation and interplay. Andrea nice touch with the wiggly fingers. Perhaps, you can teach about the duality of pain and pleasure.

Duncan..."trigger" classic.


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/5 Init +4 HP 5/86 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F13,R6,W17 Per+18

Well, Andrea isn't to much into that, but she might be able to ring up a Zon-Kuthon for advice. She'll do her best though. Don't worry, she never bites hard enough to inflict HP damage(Just 1d6 to your dignity.)

I was thinking more along the lines of the bleeding touch. Consulting with Z-K is funny.
