Or it could be gaining class levels of it's own. Not sure how it would gain experience just sitting in the forest though - killing boars perhaps?


Your Humble Narrator

Dragons aren't really meant to gain class levels. Suffice to say, in my games, it won't be happening.

Templates on the other hand... ;).

Hi, sorry for my absense...have been busy and a little computer-fatigued lately, but will pick up the pace now :)


Your Humble Narrator

Its ok, thanks for letting me know. I've been busy on my end and I can sense some general busyness as well as Kip's absence. I'm essentially waiting for discussions to end, a loot split to be done (if at all), a map update by Malthir and once the group appears to be ready, i'll narrate how the tourney goes.

I'd like to know-

Who among the PC's will be participating.
What events are going to be run (be specific please).

And i'm going to make some rolls and handle it all in one narration, as once the tourneys out of the way there's not much else that needs to be handled except the magical raising of certain characters, anything I personally have planned and the kingdom building turn.


Duke of Kardas, First Sword of Iomedae HP:76 AC:27 F:+14, R:+8, W:+12 CMD:23/24 P:-1 Init:+0 AOO:+16

Malthir plans to participate of course and any of the other Guardians who wish to.

So I have a suggestion for the grand into and some of the rest of the tourney.
Basically the Guardians who wish to participate arrive on the scene flying in from the sky. Malthir and Kalev land, larger than life due to the enlarges that have also been cast on them as well.
Casimir can into the tournament, he is probably our best public speaker.
Fenna can announce the events as they come up as well as tend for the injured.
I am not sure if we really want a single elimination tournament or just a show of arms though?
If not a "true" tournament the we could have Malthir and Cas go back to their old days and putting on a duel, Kalev could fight several Hellknights by himself or even Ricter?
Or we could truly do like a bracket and fight for subdual until someone wins? Any prefernces Fenna it is your tourney afterall.


Your Humble Narrator

I have a strong preference to handle it rather abstractly (I suppose thus far i've assumed Jousting, a Strongman contest, Archery) but if you wish to do single combat i'll use narrative to describe your progress until the final fights which we can play out.


Duke of Kardas, First Sword of Iomedae HP:76 AC:27 F:+14, R:+8, W:+12 CMD:23/24 P:-1 Init:+0 AOO:+16

That's fine with me as well...Malthir was just looking to add a little flair to it...for the people of course.


Duke of Kardas, First Sword of Iomedae HP:76 AC:27 F:+14, R:+8, W:+12 CMD:23/24 P:-1 Init:+0 AOO:+16

Latest map uploaded, we have 8 hexes left to search out, which we can hopefully complete next month.


HP: 39/60 AC: 22, T:13, FF:21, CMD:16. Fort:+5, Ref:+5, Will:+8(+7). Per:+14, Init:+0, AoO:+8

I was thinking of those, along with a grand melee, and provided sufficient interest some single combat.


Male Taldan Human Fighter (Weapon Master) 5/ Hellknight 3 HP:81/81 AC:28 F:+11, R:+6, W:+8, CMD:25*, P:+10, I:+2, AOO:+16

Count me into single combat. Nothing better for the moral of the kingdom than watching a guy in black spikey armour beat up their marshal.

Casimir is fine with doing introductions and announcements for the tournament, as well as some sort of participation in show-fights or grand melee.


hp 48/66, AC 26/17/20, CMD 23/24, F: +8, R: +11, W: +7, init: +5, per: +10 Human Bard 6/Fighter 2

I'd like a bit of feedback on my Leadership cohorts

So far, my thoughts are:
1) a middleaged female human diviner - possibly a harrower.
2) male half-elf druid - human father a druid from Sevenarchs, mother an elf.
3) male human Pathfinder (class undecided, probably some fighter/rogue mix) - old buddy of Casimir's from the Restov dueling schools gone off to Absalom to join the Pathfinders.

Your Humble Narrator

Ok, so Kip and Casimir aren't going to participate in any tournament events.

Who is participating, and in what events.

My understanding is-

Event 1- Jousting

PC Participants- ???

Event 2- Strongman

PC Participants- ???

Event 3- Archery

PC Participants- ???

Event 4- Single Combat Elimination Tourney

PC Participants- Ricter, ???

Give me some clarity and i'll put a large post together. Probably the only event that we'll go into detail with is single combat, i'll be handling the others quite abstractly.

Malthir will try his hand at Jousting and the Single Combat

I'd be interested in single combat and strongman

As for the loot split... I believe we are only talking about the treasure discovered in the troll fortress yes? If that it is the case, there is only coin and valuables to liquidate and divide... unless I am missing something.

The list as I read it is:
83 sp and 201 gp.
502 sp and 188 gp.
A small statue of a dragon carved from exotic wood worth 200 gp.
A gold necklace with a jade pendant worth 250 gp.
Several pieces of minor jewelry worth 225 gp.
Two medium quality gemstones together worth 150 gp.
Three bottles of fine wine together worth 27 gp.
An engraved silver tankard worth 50 gp.
184 cp, 1,205 sp, and 152 gp.

Giving us a total of 184 cp, 1790 sp & 1443 gp.

Divided 7 ways equals 7 cp, 9 sp & 231 gp each including the group party share. (With exchange... and if my math is correct :)

If this is agreeable, I will add it to the treasure spread sheet... (and update the almanac while I am at it. ;)


hp 48/66, AC 26/17/20, CMD 23/24, F: +8, R: +11, W: +7, init: +5, per: +10 Human Bard 6/Fighter 2

Casimir will participate in single combat and archery


Your Humble Narrator

Ok great, Ricter please confirm which events you'll be entering and I can get a post in tomorrow.

Okoya- that looks about right. Everyone please add your share (7CP, 9SP, 231GP) to your character sheet and update party share.

Yes, get on with the almanac okoya :P.

For this reason Ricter will be steering clear of strongman and limiting ihmself to single combat. I would have liked to have a crack at jousting but I seem to have missed out on putting ranks in ride, so that would probably not end well.


Your Humble Narrator

Please ensure you've added your share of gold to your character sheet.

I made the rolls for the tournament off-screen for simplicity. Post coming soon. We'll run all the combats of the single combat concurrently to save time.


Your Humble Narrator

Poor Malthir/Noleski. I don't know who I feel more sorry for. I laughed heartily when I randomly rolled that match up, and then once more as Noleski actually managed what will likely be his only hit.


Duke of Kardas, First Sword of Iomedae HP:76 AC:27 F:+14, R:+8, W:+12 CMD:23/24 P:-1 Init:+0 AOO:+16

I wouldn't be so sure about that...you roll nat 20's against me all of the time :] and the dice have seemed to have left me lately


hp 48/66, AC 26/17/20, CMD 23/24, F: +8, R: +11, W: +7, init: +5, per: +10 Human Bard 6/Fighter 2

No magic tricks, eh...of course not. Wouldn't be a fair fight otherwise - said the lightly armored 3/4 BAB bard facing the full BAB fighter with a tower shield and a boat-load of combat feats :-P

Oh well, I guess I'll just have to outmaneuver him...oh wait, 25x25 ft enclosed area with no terrain features.

What can I say....challenge accepted!


hp 48/66, AC 26/17/20, CMD 23/24, F: +8, R: +11, W: +7, init: +5, per: +10 Human Bard 6/Fighter 2

A couple of questions before I make my first single combat move:

1) Am I allowed to inspire myself?

2) Is there any way for me to alter the terrain of the combat area - make some of it difficult terrain, put physical obstacles between my opponent and me, that sort of thing?


It amuses me that the metaphor for the new nation is to wall a small child with all its chaos and exuberance into a prison of stone. :)


Your Humble Narrator

I thought it might Joana :P. They didn't build a roof over him at least :D.

Well, as for your complaints Casimir, trust me when I say Signifer Grachius is suffering at least as much if not more than you are from the lack of spellcasting allowed, as a medium BAB character who is used to spells like divine favor, shield of faith etc. bolstering him!

1- Bardic music would count as magic so you'd be on very iffy ground rules-wise.

2. Other than possibly sundering bits of the fence and scattering them around or grabbing spectators and throwing them over the area, not particularly.

The single combat tourney was really styled off a typical medieval grand melee and frankly, with the lack of input I had to work off, I don't think i've really made it so harsh for anyone. Sorry if you feel i've been intentionally penalising some people over others, because that was not my intention.

In the interest of getting the game plodding on again, I made a lot of calls to be able to run this smoothly without spending months of RL time on it.


Your Humble Narrator

I've decided I feel more sorry for Malthir :P.

It would be nice to see some people posting today. Trying to get the pace up again- I know it was a weekend when I made that long post but now its a bright, sunny monday- clearly great weather to sit inside and type, yes? :D

Edit: Okoya, I spare you from the whip of PC nagging. I saw your message in SS, sorry to hear work has you working crazy hours!

Edit 2: Edit ninja!

Sorry for my lack of posting... In the middle of a big project and working stupid hours for the last couple of days. I am either eating, sleeping or at the job site. Should be done by Wednesday. Please DMNPC Kip as needed. Thanks. And Sorry again.

Edit: Thanks. :)


Sorry, AK; Monday's a holiday in the US. You might have to wait another day for your American players to get back in the swing of things. :)


Your Humble Narrator

I have American players? Ah yes, Malthir. He is the one who is posting at the moment :P.

Okoya is based in Canada and the rest of us are Europeans :D.


Duke of Kardas, First Sword of Iomedae HP:76 AC:27 F:+14, R:+8, W:+12 CMD:23/24 P:-1 Init:+0 AOO:+16

I am off today...spending a little time on-line before going out for the day. Hoping the dice will warm up a little when I face a more dangerous adversary... :]

Sorry for the delay, I was away for the weekend, and I've been pretty tired by the time I got back somewhere I could've logged on.

I'm always hesitant to go into too much detail about things outside of my own character, to avoid stepping on toes. Sorry if I ended up leaving it too vague, but what you've done is great and fairly in line with what I had in mind (except the location; I figured that the ground beneath Edric's monument might be a bit steep for our purposes, but I might be underestimating the scale of the map).


Male Human Writer 2/Dreamer 7

I'd also like to add that any tones of complaint in my post were firmly tongue-in-cheek, and were in no way a critique of Alex. I'm having a lot of fun with my duel so far, especially since it forces me to get creative with the combat rules.

I already said as much and more to Alex over msn, just wanted it on the record here.

Great job, GM AK.

Casimir VS Grachius-

I miss my magic he thought ruefully.

Somewhere nearby, inside a metal suit of armour, a Hellknight is thinking the same thing.


Your Humble Narrator

Oh and Ricter, your trait bonus to intimidate is active, you can't get more into claimed territory of Kardas than in its capital :).


Your Humble Narrator

Just noticed a slight derp on my part. Kalev's opponent is, in fact, wearing Half-Plate.


Your Humble Narrator

We can begin some of the Round 2 fights, while we wait for Ricter's bout to finish, if you like?

Round 2 Matchup-

Randomised via dice rolls...

Pellius VS Akiros

Kressle VS Ursion

Ricter or his opponent VS Malthir

Casimir VS Kalev

Note to self, never bring half-plate to a full-plate fight...


hp 48/66, AC 26/17/20, CMD 23/24, F: +8, R: +11, W: +7, init: +5, per: +10 Human Bard 6/Fighter 2

NPC vs NPC and PC vs PC - this ought to be interesting.

I'm good to start round two - will drop an initiative roll in the IC.


Duke of Kardas, First Sword of Iomedae HP:76 AC:27 F:+14, R:+8, W:+12 CMD:23/24 P:-1 Init:+0 AOO:+16

I believe that Kalev has the edge on this tourney.
He is a little more of a straight-up fighter with feats built to that vs. the builds like me and Ricter that relay on our special abilities to really buff us up or magic like Cas.
No complaints, just summing up for the odds makers :)
Now I wish I would have gotten to the natural armor bonus Malthir is wanting to get :)


Your Humble Narrator

The odds makers don't see Akiros on this side of the screen. My money's on him, possibly Kressle... :P.

Kalev does get to use his signature ability though, Rangers Focus. Assuming he makes it to the final, he will have to forgo it in a single fight...

Ouch, I hope Casimir doesn't hold a grutch...I have him at 31 points of real damage after that hit...

"MEDIC!"


That probably looked a bit confusing from the outside. Akiros piled on the damage with rage powers that deal damage on successful overruns and bull rushes. Modifiers were also changing a lot from attacking prone, use of reckless abandon and use of power attack.


Duke of Kardas, First Sword of Iomedae HP:76 AC:27 F:+14, R:+8, W:+12 CMD:23/24 P:-1 Init:+0 AOO:+16

Just wondering if he will run out of rage rounds before the end of the tourney...lol's


Your Humble Narrator

I have been keeping track of it, but no. It doesn't look likely :P.
