Chronicles of the Silver Rose Company

Game Master Patrick Curtin

This campaign is my attempt to play a canonical Planescape campaign using the updated Pathfinder ruleset. The game actually predates the release of Pathfinder, but we have managed to update as we have needed.


2,951 to 2,969 of 2,969 << first < prev | 50 | 51 | 52 | 53 | 54 | 55 | 56 | 57 | 58 | 59 | 60 | next > last >>

Thank you for updating us. As long as we get the occasional smoke signals I'm good.


No worries monkey!

I'm just glad that THIS time the 'interruption' is for a GOOD reason!
:)


Is this the regular deck, or the Harrow deck of many things, or a custom deck?

The Harrow deck has proportionately less "you die" effects.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Then it's the regular one :P


That makes the decision much, much, much, much easier.

Hmm... does augury work on a deck?

[Public affairs persona]Good question! I do not know the answer at this moment, but I will research it and get back to you[/Public affairs persona]

:P indeed!

Ah, Deck Of Many Things. How do I hate to love thee, or is it love to hate thee? I get those confused.

Let me count the ways,

Draw 1 card,
Draw 2 cards,
Draw 3 cards,... ;P

SO many possibilities! SO many goodies to claim!

So many chances to draw that ONE card that you KNOW will kill you! ;)

Speaking of which, the Interwebz seems to think augury could not be used reliably on a deck. I tend to agree.


I'd agree, the 'original' Deck was actually listed under Artifacts if I recall correctly, pretty much the rule of 'more powerful magic cancels weaker magic' would count there I think! ;)

Even if the newer versions are 'only' minor artifacts, I'd still have to agree that would apply.

Maybe, MAYBE an 8th or 9th lvl spell may be able to even the odds? (Especially if it was an answer from a Power?) But that would pretty much be it.

I don't even know what lvl Augury is, I'm just thinking out loud,

and being glad I'm able to type on my PC again! :)

Sovereign Court

Male hu-man Paladin

Well it's a typical Gygaxian item so no amount of planning or preparation can prevent intent death.


Augury is level 1. It only gives "Weal", "Woe", or "Weal and Woe". I saw a lot of people who thought that that was okay.

But if there's nothing to prevent soul death, then I won't be partaking. I probably would for some of the other decks where you actually have more than a 2/3 chance of surviving.

Which, I think, was the original intent of the deck. It is a temptation, but one with consequences. If you feel like gambling, then you take the risks. If you feel that the risks are too high, well, then the deck can be left alone....

Can the party resist the maddening urge to pull a card from the deck?
the beautiful shiny deck!
The jolly candy-like deck!


LOL!

GM: "Make Will save vs the shiny, harmless looking, artifact that only wants to give you power, and items, and castles, and stuff!"

All players, ever: "Well,.... S#*%. Just ONE card can't hurt, right??!?"

:P

Heh, did not even need to open the link to get that reference!


LOL,
I'm taking to long to craft my responses, and we are cross-posting!
THAT hasn't happened to me in a while! :)


Blayze Female Aasimar Gunslinger (Mysterious Stranger) 2/ Paladin (Holy Gun/Divine Hunter) 6

Paladin wants to shoot sexy undead in face before someone has a weak moment.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Doing undead!
OW!
sexxay sexxay


LOL!

Whoops! Too late! ;P

Justin doesn't do necromancy, (Not counting his recently-added False Life spell) :) so maybe I should have crafted his reactions to reflect this more. (I certainly will when I FINALLY get to this point in the journal)* But he also realizes that not all undead are automatically evil, (even though the majority seem to be inclined in that direction) and after that near-debacle with the necro-ooze, he is certainly inclined to accept help with these encounters. The fact that she might actually be healed by the encounters primary damage dealer (negative energy) is a plus to him! ;)

*(I AM working on the journal's next chapter, I swear! Some write themselves, and some need to be gently beaten massaged into shape. :)


Male Human Scout 6/Barbarian 1/Dervish 3 } HP=76/99 | AC=18 (Variable) | Init. +4 | F +6 | Ref +11 | Will +5

Nothing like Barbarians on Philosophy to make for interesting conversation when confronted by a creature right out of Clive Barker stories! I mean, what else would we talk about?
