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.

Welcome Shadow/Hamar! :)

Sorry so slow Monkey, Slammed with this show loading in.

I'll pick a critter(s) this morning! :)

Alright, now that all remains is for you to read the 250 or so pages to get caught up with the story :P

Wouldn't that be metagaming? :-)

I've fallen down that rabbit hole before. We've had some fun times over the last seven years

nonsense, it's only meta gaming if you act on that information.

How about an in-game recap of the past 8 years? :-)

Went to plane of salt. Killed goblins
Went to Mortuary, then the elemental plane of fire. Killed zombies, hobgoblins, and a githyanki
Went to Yggdrasil, then Prime. Killed undead leaf ghosts, big ass beetles, and hallucinagenic mind-warping monsters. Also killed goblin ninjas, ogre wights, and a scad of unique BBEGs bent on world domination.
Went to the Shattered Temple District, killed a lot of dream monsters
Went back to Yggdrasil.

Welcome Shadow! Also, among those different places - recovered a beauty-stealing artifact and bonded with / planted a semi-divine seed from Yggdrasil.

Ah yes. I also forgot the Khaasta and the old tower that Bethany the Harpy accidentally destroyed with water after Justin accidentally set it on fire! Lol

LOL! Ah yes, good times! Riding the wave of water out the window and being caught by my bronze Griffon was my high point of that one! :)

As Issac once put it, 'We destroy more property before morning than most people do all day. And most of it is by accident!" (Paraphrased) ;P


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Stupid spectre. Of course it gets a crit :/


How is it that the BAD GUYS get all the digital dice love?!? ;P

I really hate fighting the undead, they just have so many bull cocky rules.


Yep. All of them designed to make lunch meat out of poor, helpless, defenseless PC's. ;)

Every once n a while, I miss the good OLD days, when a cleric could Turn Undead and just reduce so many #HD of undead into tomb dust. ;P

One of my pet peeves (read= scared to death of happening to my character) has always been level drains. I don't know why. I can count the number of my PC encounters with level-drains on one hand. ;P


female Tiefling 9th level Duskblade

It's because level drains are terrible.

Hey you know all that work you put into playing your character? Gone.

We've been gaming now for 8 years and one attack negates all the work we've done. Karrin started at level 5 and now she's level 5 again. That's why level drains suck.


Male Human Scout 6/Barbarian 1/Dervish 2

I thought it was Temp and you make saves after the fact to shake them off or was that a 3.5 rule?


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

There is a saving throw per level lost at the 24 hour mark. If a save is made the level returns. If it is failed the loss is permanent. So Karrin could lose 0-4 levels depending on how the STs break. Or she could get a Restoration spell before the 24 hours is up which will negate the level drain.

Restoration will remove all of the temporary negative levels, or one permanent per week. Main issue is the component (100gp or 1000gp of diamond dust), which I don't know if any of us have ...

Ekuur could conceivably rest for 8 hours to replenish and get restoration before the 24 hours, but we still need the dust. And find a safe place to do so ...

Well, an undead world is liable to have some treasure about ;)

Yes. This. :(

For the record I wasn't assuming that the level drains were permanent, just expressing why everyone hates the undead.

I played a LOT of 2ed so I had characters who were victims of the permanent drain with no saves. As a young cruel DM though I had fun torturing the players with undead, especially Swordwraiths, fighters hated swordwraiths...


FYI, I am traveling for work from Tuesday through Thursday, my posting over those few days may be spotty as a result.


OK, Safe journeys! ;)

I am in the middle of another week-long rental (Production of Mary Poppins the musical) It should be fun, but as I have all of the usual nonsense PLUS a flying system, I'll be busy too. THEN launching into the usual end-of-school/summer dance show Hot Mess.

Hope to check in once a day, but I probably won't be writing any novel-length posts for a while.

Why do I suddenly hear cheering?!?,... ;P


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Safe travels Dennis! No fears on the pisting, PbP is glacial.

I love your long posts Rags:). Just an FYI. I'm changing jobs again around Memorial Day. I've also switched stores at my soon-to-be ex-job, and it's very busy there. I'm hoping the new job will afford me some opportunities to update, but we will see. I know they have free wifi :)

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that I plan to keep up with things, but the best laid plans of mice and men..yadda yadda


Dude, good luck. Again. ;)

Best wishes as always. I hope that the new job is a good start to things turning back your way. :)

Speaking of best laid plans of mice and Ken,... ;P


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I'll be updating Thursday, my next day off. Sorry for the delay, but adding maps to the mix means laptop time. I've been squeezing my updates in on my phone.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Having just posted that I realized the next update didn't need a map. Ah well, it's posted


Male Human Scout 6/Barbarian 1/Dervish 2

Much easier to post from a laptop especially as a DM, I never update the game I ST from my phone.


lol, I hate texting. I can't imagine posting from my phone.

I mean, I've tested going to the paizo webpage when I first got a phone that could do so. But just trying to read the web page gave me a headache. ;P

I'll wait. Post from your laptop. It's good. :)


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Actually I've gotten so good I can do BBC formatting and combat on my IPhone6. I just can't update map moves. Heck I'm on my phone now. If it wasn't for it, id likely have given up PbPs by now. I can take a moment here and there to update. I've learned to carry a few gaming supplies in a bag (APs, notes, etc) and the Internet answers all my gaming questions :)


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Just an FYI folks. I won't be around much until Monday. Lots of crap going on. I do have a mini vacation coming up this upcoming week, so at worst there will be new posts by the end of this week.


I just wish you a GOOD busy,

As opposed to my work-100-hrs/week-and-still-get-paid-same-salary. :)

See you when you escape teh busy-ness! ;P


Hey all,

Just wanted to say Happy Holiday to those who got one!

(I had to go to work and tech another dance show. But they wanted out too, so I got to come home and grill!) :)

Hope your new job is going well Monkey-Man!

See you all soon!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Hey all. I'm going to be proactive and just let you all know that the next month or so might see some long gaps in updating. Now, I might get some done, but there is an awful lot of stuff going on in my life at the moment. Please bear with , I will keep you all in the loop as I can. Thank you for your patience.


No worries Patrick, you should see the gaps between posts in my Vamp game when I am too busy to keep up. An excellent game can survive some RL issues :-)

Hope the issues are things getting better!


Ditto on the getting better wishes!

I think we're past the point of worrying about whether or not we'll wait.

;P

Take care sir, hope to see you sooner rather than later.

As a side note, I managed to get cast in a local community theaters production of The Addams Family Musical. As Gomez. :/

I actually have something productive to do now between posting PbP's and playing video games. (Like I get to play games!) I have a LOT of memorizing to do! Only 2 months to go,.... ;)


Cool, love Gomez :-)
