Male Dhampir Magus (Bladebound/Hexcrafter) 2

Level 5:

+1 level of Fighter

+1 BAB

+1d10 + 2 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 2 + 1 = 8 hp

Skills: +1 Climb, +1 Perception, +1 Sense Motive

Weapon Training

Male Dhampir Magus (Bladebound/Hexcrafter) 2

Actually, for hilarity sake, I think I will take a level of Barbarian instead, now that Kuva is no longer with us - I think a raging, Welsh-speaking sociopath might be interesting ;-)

Male Dhampir Magus (Bladebound/Hexcrafter) 2

Assuming that is okay, of course?

Male Dhampir Magus (Bladebound/Hexcrafter) 2

Level 6:

+1 level of Barbarian (Urban Barbarian)

+1 BAB

+2 Fort

+1d12 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 2 = 14 hp

Skills: +1 Climb, +1 Knowledge(Dungeoneering), +1 Knowledge(Local), +1 Perception, +1 Sense Motive

Crowd Control

Controlled Rage

Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Okay, that is funny. Someone who is normally even keeled, non-caring about pretty much anything... goes off on a nasty rage just because he now can. That's just greatness. :)

And to top it off, you roll a 12 for hp's! You gotta be kiddin' me. It was obviously meant to be. :P

Male Dhampir Magus (Bladebound/Hexcrafter) 2

Well, I thought the Urban Barbarian would be good in that respect - 'Controlled Rage' means that you can utterly furious, but still clinically detached and in 100% control, which seemed kind of appropriate for Tyrrol :-P

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7


will not be applied.

Looks like fun.

Mordecai's in.

I'll PM Lecian.

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

Set, don't worry. I'm sure Lecian would take an arrow for you.

You have my sympathy.

No reply yet from Lecian. He has posted on the boards recently. (Fingers crossed.)

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

Still waiting on Lecian. With Thanksgiving coming up, shall we meet on Monday?

Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

I say we give him until tomorrow anyway. But after that, I'm good with Monday to kick it back up.

Swapped messages with Ludomancer. He's busy in RL, but still interested. He plans to level his character this weekend.

My Monday post will assume that it is about noon. That you're fully refreshed, respelled, all healed up, and ready to go.

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Happy Thanksgiving!

On the move. Brave man that Tyrrol.

Spellcasters please post your lists.

Male Dhampir Magus (Bladebound/Hexcrafter) 2


Well, from Tyrrol's perspective, he was either fated to fall, or fated not to fall; either way, there was no point worrying about it ;-)

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

Work strikes back. Traveling tomorrow. Will probably be able to post at airport tomorrow AM and then on Thursday night.

Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Christmas time is my busy time of the year. Until after it's over, my posting is gonna be hit and miss during the work week. Just fyi. Will try to keep up as best as possible but if not, DMPC me as needed.

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

Alas, socked in at work. Maybe Sat before I post again. Fortunately you got a full round to work over this poor black elf.

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

Guys, the holidays have descended upon me. My parents and Mother-In-Law are in for the season. I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Fantabulous New Year.

Posting by me will resume a few days after Christmas.

Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Merry Christmas, fellas!

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

My wife's been sick, but I should be able to post tonight.

Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Sorry to hear that, thom. Hope she gets to feeling better, bud.

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

Thanks. Apologies for added delay. Tonight or Sat to post.

Male Dhampir Magus (Bladebound/Hexcrafter) 2

No worries!

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

May be out of touch til Wed or Thurs

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

Sorry, guys. Put in a huge day Friday so I could catch the redeye home and end my nearly 2 week sojourn to Seattle. Spent the weekend relaxing with the wife; yesterday catching up at the office. I should have time to catch up with the game tonight.

Male Dhampir Magus (Bladebound/Hexcrafter) 2

It seem to be my stock-standard response, but it is still nonetheless true: No worries! ;-)

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

Set, brutally nice post!

And Tyrrol is in a target rich environment. Hrrmm.

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

Guys, that was pretty much it. You've got some options for how we actually tie the game up as I explained in the Game thread. I'm willing to RP the AP in a rules-light mode.

I just want to make sure I say this before anyone leaves. It's has been great playing with you all. The characters were really interesting.

Luke -- Tyrrol's build was a killer. Brilliant,

Javell -- Glad to see Lothan finally came into his own in that last fight.

Set -- As stated at the beginning of the game, I have an aversion to evil PCs, but I'm glad you made Mordecai work so well. Great experience for me to see that.

Ludomancer -- I think Lecian did a lot more than it looks in that last fight. The arcane sight picked the enemy caster out early. Lecian's mere presence goaded me into the silence which "wasted" a turn for the caster and was really a huge tactical error. Her next best spell was suggestion which she would have thrown at Lothan except he was in the silence and so invulnerable to it. That led to her trying it on the other "fighter" -- laughable. And waking Mordecai up instead of casting was smart. His channels pretty much guaranteed that the guards were one hit kills for Lothan and Tyrrol.

Happy to chat as much as you guys want.

Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Man that was pretty cool for Lothan to shine like that. It's almost like he was some type of "I've got one last card to be played" or some such. That was fun!

Like 2 1/2 years to finish. Man where does the time go. Too fast if you ask me.

Enjoyed it, fellas. Too bad we lost Jelloarm along the way. Kuva was a pretty neat pc.

I'll confess, at one point I sure was hoping Lothan would die.

I hated him. He was boring and lame.

Fortunately, I tried a different approach and it worked. That's when I started joking around with Tyrrol. I thought it would be pretty interesting for some skinny half-elf to joke around with this ogre of one who is the epitome of seriousness.

I had to do something, I was dying with this guy. Man he was the worst.

Woo! Mordecai didn't get eaten!


Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

Lothan worked out well. What a killer in the last scene.


Also, I'd like to thank you guys for hanging around during my various hiatuses.

Just kidding about the rocks.

Male Dhampir Magus (Bladebound/Hexcrafter) 2

@therealthom: Thanks for running it; I had a blast :-)

@Javell: I really enjoyed the interplay between Tyrrol and Lothan, even if *Tyrrol* was somewhat confused by it ;-) I agree that Lothan certainly finished off the campaign with a bang!

@Set: I thought that Mordecai was quite an interesting character, despite the ever-present threat that his goddess would come and claim him (aka abysmal hp rolling).

@Ludomancer: I agree that Lecian probably did not get as much respect as he deserved, but he was still remarkably useful...

As a final note, I would just like to add that I would be happy to game with any or all of you again, in the future - especially if, say, we could con someone into running the next book for us**.

**This is not an attempt to pressure our current GM; just a general observation.

Male Human Diviner Wizard 6

The adventure twist in Children of the Void kind of has me interested as to what's supposed to happen next. I'm considering running part 3 of the AP, and if I do, I'll ask here for players first.

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

Excellent, Ludomancer!

So guys, I thought you might be interested in your loot in the final cave. I'm sure you can kill or drive away the orca. And that you can circumvent the broken bridge and the need to reach the high ledge across the cave where the drow cleric started.

Most of the drow guard bodies have a cure moderate wounds potion, masterwork chain shirt, masterwork small steel shield, masterwork rapier, masterwork hand crossbow with ~5 bolts. Those chain shirts might not be so masterwork anymore. =-)

There's a depot for goods stored at area G9c, primarily tools and supplies the drow used to move the meteorite from the crater to this area, to repair the platforms here, and other sundry supplies. The supplies include two block and tackles, 10 square yards of canvas, 50 feet of chain, five crowbars, three fishing nets, six grappling hooks, four hammers, six hooded lanterns, a set of masterwork shipwright’s tools, a set of masterwork carpenter’s tools, a set of masterwork tailor’s tools, a merchant’s scale, seven miner’s picks, 14 pitons, two 10-foot poles, a portable ram, 200 feet of silk rope, 17 empty sacks, and two sledges. Mixed in with all this mundane gear is a crate containing four bottles of 4663-vintage wine from the Terverius Wineries of southern Cheliax. Each bottle is worth 300 gp.

On the main platform (area G9d), The large trunks contain largely food and clothing. A small, unlocked box contains two potions of lesser restoration, three potions of remove paralysis, and a potion of
neutralize poison. All are labeled in Undercommon.

On the cleric's starting ledge (area G9g): Shindiira’s trunk contains more than just the 53 pounds of noqual harvested from the meteorite. This ore creates a rough layer along the bottom of the chest; atop it Shindiira has laid several changes of clothes (including two sets of noble outfits sized for an elven woman and worth 60 gp each) and a set of ostentatious costume jewelry worth 5 gp. Also in the chest is a silver scrolltube worth 150 gp that contains several maps— Devil’s Elbow (before and after the meteorite strike), Riddleport, Celwynvian, western Varisia, and all of Varisia. The map of Celwynvian includes information on several key drow encampments and patrol routes.

Perhaps the greatest treasure in the chests, though, are the three books wrapped in silk and leather and set along the left side of the chest. The first of these books is Tsalkaean’s Bestiary, a book written in Undercommon that grants a +2 circumstance bonus on Knowledge (dungeoneering) checks to identify aberrations and oozes and is worth 200 gp. The second is a well-read book called Thoughts on Varisian
Customs, written in Common and worth 10 gp. The final book is a slender journal, similar in style to the one that Depora kept. Whereas Depora’s journal made no mention of Shindiira, this journal mentions Depora many
times. A character who reads the journal learns first of Shindiira’s excitement at being accepted into House Azrinae, and then eventually her frustration and finally hatred for Depora. Nolveniss is mentioned by name several times as well; Shindiira is quite explicit in the ways in which she plans to use him as her consort once she returns to him in Celwynvian with a large amount of noqual and akatas to show him her
power. The last dozen entries display a dramatic shift in tone, becoming an almost scientific list of observations of the strange meteorological effects that preceded the falling star, the impact itself, and developments afterward. The PCs can use these entries to piece together much of what’s been going on over the past few days on the island. More importantly, the journal mentions several times an ominously titled event or object called an “Armageddon Echo”.

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

You can spend the next few days holed up in the cave or back at the camp. You can hunt the tentacle dogs (Akatas) and zombies if you like, or not. You guys are officially the baddestassed people on the island.

When the boats come to pick up Clegg's gang, Akron, as CLegg's righthand man, is in a good position to negotiate, especially with you all backing him up. You can get one of the ships to take you all to Magnimar, not Korvosa like Akron told you, he'll correct that lie just before you put into Magnimar. Or you could get one of the ships for yourself. The ordinary pirate crew members are willing to follow anyone who's tough and capable and able to put coin in their pocket and you've shown yourself to be all three.

Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

If you would, Thom, go ahead and make the thread inactive for me.

I'm not going to be able to join any more games at this time or who knows when. RL has me busy these days.

Was fun, fellas!

Cookie Jar Pilferer 7

Your wish ....

Edit: Hey look, we can still post.

Yeah, it doesn't lock the thread, just marks it as inactive so it drops to the footnote area of your Campaigns tab.

Congrats on actually finishing a campaign, guys! That's quite an accomplishment. :)

Male Human Diviner Wizard 6

Are any of you up to playing through Armageddon Echo?

Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Alright, I think I'd be interested, Lecian. I'm guessing you're gonna throw this out in a recruit thread and we have to sign up as normal?

How's all this gonna shake out?

Male Dhampir Magus (Bladebound/Hexcrafter) 2

I wouldn't say no :-)

I actually wasn't going to bother with a recruit thread, as long as I got enough players from this group.

The others may have to sent PMs. In the meantime, take any discussion here.
