"What is this place? Puzzles in Azlant, more magic than you see in a year in Absalom. Wheels literally within wheels. Bound demons and wax golems? The expense must have been enormous. But why? To what end?"

DM AK:
Sorry, wasn't clear enough - I meant giving my potion to the slaver so that he could drink it and be healed so as to make it more 'equal'.
The comment in previous spoiler was meant to imply if Qhude cannot convince Tebati or Jakob to heal the slaver; then Qhude would probably give him his cure potion so that the slaver would be healed up before the duel.

Definitely agree about the Mwangi duels being about equality


Your Humble Narrator

Qhude:

Gotcha. We'll see how it unfolds.


AK:
I'm beginning to question the usefulness of the Sleep spell, when all it takes is one person succeeding on their save to wake one comrade, who in turn has a full round of actions at his disposal to both stand from prone and wake the next guy in line. It's almost like an AOE version of the 0-level spell Daze, except that it doesn't cost anyone who has a friend awaken them any actions. One would think they would be at least treated as being Unaware Combatants in a Surprise Round, since they were unconscious for a stretch, and presumably disoriented.

Thrice dammed auto-correct. I thought I caught all of those. I blame the death-flu i am going through. Glad you liked it though.

There are some insects that were used historically as sutures and there is work going on about the use of maggots as in-wound cleaners. They eat the necrotic tissue and are absorbed by the body when it is healthy again.

The world is a strange place.


All these spoilers are making this West Sider nervous! >:|

Strangely enough I feel the same way!


Your Humble Narrator

Ansha:

Well, it costs the standard actions of as many people as were slept- and those who stood up had to leave their weapons behind in their haste to flee.


Your Humble Narrator

After a brain storming session with Jacob Trier over MSN, i've decided to house rule the way fuse grenades work. We were both unhappy that an intelligent foe will ALWAYS get a chance to hurl it back as long as it has actions and I was particularly unhappy that its detonation count is tied to a PC's initiative count, leading to strange things like if the thrower delays, the grenade explodes later.

As with all my house rules, the change is now visible in the Campaign Info for perusal. Here is the text-

Changes to the 'Fuse Grenade' Item-

1. The fuse grenade explodes on its own initiative count, which is equal to the PC's initiative count when he lights the grenade. If the PC should delay, ready an action or have his initiative changed by any way whatsoever, the fuse grenade retains the original initiative count.

2. The fuse grenade has a chance of exploding the same round it is thrown. The 1d3 rounds duration has been house ruled to 1d4-1, meaning that it might essentially explode the same turn it is thrown (on the roll of a 1, making a 0 rounds duration total).


I totally didn't even know there were fuse grenades in Pathfinder....


Your Humble Narrator

Yeah i'm aware its very much a corner case. They see fairly frequent use in my KM game as an APG item.


Adventurer's Armory, according to d20pfsrd. I've never really used that book; never gotten over my disappointment that I couldn't actually have a buttery knife. (Douena has one anyway, though, as an Easter Egg that amuses only myself.)


Your Humble Narrator

Ah yeah, AA & APG, same difference right :P.

You can have a buttery knife in this game! Just put 'Small Improvised Weapon' on your character sheet :)


AK:
Yeah, I guess that's something.


What exactly is a buttery knife? Did we mean 'butterfly knife'? Or did we add an unnecessary "y" in there? Or is there actually something called a buttery knife that I've never heard of?


It was an unfortunate issue with the font in Adventurer's Armory that deleted 'fl' everywhere the two letters came side-by-side. Not one of Paizo's finest hours. Then, they sold out of the first print run and intended to make a second with corrections and somehow managed to send the original version rather than corrected version to the printer, iirc. At which point they said, 'Screw it, we'll just make Ultimate Equipment.' ;)

So, yes, it was supposed to be a butterFLy knife.


Ohhhhh. It all makes sense, now!


Hey, just noticed the campaign blurb! :)


Male Human (Mwangi - Bas'o tribe) Barbarian (Brutal Pugilist archetype) 4

Heh - congratulations on the words of wisdom Joana :)

Probably best that the quote comes from a more balanced personality than Qhude...


AK wrote:
...i'm inclined to take us out of initiative if thats ok with everyone?

No objections here.


Your Humble Narrator

Qhude very nearly got a quote actually, maybe next time :).


Male Human (Mwangi - Bas'o tribe) Barbarian (Brutal Pugilist archetype) 4

AK - before I fill Tebati in... has the Bandu leader decided to take advantage of the opening Qhude offered?

As a statement of fact Qhude intones "You bleed..." And by acknowledging the wounds of the slaver giving the opposing ibutho an honorable opening to make an issue of them... - that one.


Your Humble Narrator

Sorry meant to reply to that. Damn spoilers.

He makes no issue of them, seeing that you are also wounded... Or maybe he just distrusts magic.


Male Human (Mwangi - Bas'o tribe) Barbarian (Brutal Pugilist archetype) 4

No problems AK - you've done a sterling job through the combat :)


Male Human (Mwangi - Bas'o tribe) Barbarian (Brutal Pugilist archetype) 4

My momentary gender misstep has been rectified...


Your Humble Narrator

Its easily done. I should know.


Tebati wrote:
"And his choice is what matters, does it?" Tebati's eyes narrow danagerously. Turning her back deliberately to the preparing Bandu, she approaches within inches of Qhude, trying to draw his focus away from his opponent. "And so, while your brothers' fates are still unknown to you, while Kieran and N'bellocq could be being carried away as sacrifices or slaves, your sun stops in the sky to fight a battle of honor? How long would you take to ungird yourself and prepare the ring, as this one buys with his life and your delay time for his tribe to carry those you have sworn to protect further from your reach?"

Took me a moment to figure out why Unwe was mad at Tebati. The above is all in response to Qhude telling Tebati about the Bandu's choice of single combat. I presumed Unwe spoke to Jakob before Tebati even arrived on the scene; all she's heard is what Qhude has said to her. She certainly has no objection to killing the remaining Bandu.


Your Humble Narrator

With Tebati's super duper move speed I assumed she was there pretty quick I suppose; and she was still somewhat in shock from events on this side of the smoke. Unwes happy to put it down to a misunderstanding then :)


Male Human (Mwangi - Bas'o tribe) Barbarian (Brutal Pugilist archetype) 4

DM AK:
What would follow may not be nice... but if possible I'd like for the Bandu to be incapacitated, but conscious if Qhude wins the bout...

He's not going to crochet his entrails, but he would seek to grant Albert's wishes...


Male Human (Mwangi - Bas'o tribe) Barbarian (Brutal Pugilist archetype) 4

Perhaps it was best that most of the party wasn't around to witness the end of that bout....


What? You think Jakob wouldn't have approved? ;)

The real question is, was Unwe repelled or turned on?


Male Human (Mwangi - Bas'o tribe) Barbarian (Brutal Pugilist archetype) 4

We'll see won't we Joana? - though if Date 1 was dancing with lions, Date 2 was taking in a show.... I'm not sure Qhude would live through Date 3...


My parents got engaged on their second date, which avoids all that pesky discovering-your-crush-is-a-brutal-killer downtime. You want to close the deal early. It's easy to dump a boyfriend, harder to break an engagement. Once she has a diamond on her finger, it takes a fairly staggering revelation to convince a woman to give it back. ;)

In re: Aid Anothers to N'bellocq's tracking, people untrained in Survival can't follow a trail with a DC higher than 10. Can they Aid Another on a trail with a DC higher than 10? Jakob has a rank, and Qhude has a good Survival, although he's not yet with us at the moment.


Male Human (Mwangi - Bas'o tribe) Barbarian (Brutal Pugilist archetype) 4

Oh dear... perhaps Qhude best propose now then... before she sees what he is going to do next and gets turned off...


Your Humble Narrator

Sorry for the slowness. Having PC problems.


Again? What happened to your shiny new laptop?

Even after her close call, I almost forgot about it again: Can Tebati get some kind of dagger or knife from the caravan before we leave? Doesn't have to be a weapon she can attack with, just something that will cut a net.

@Mark, having a hard time picturing Qhude down on one knee with a velvet box. ;)


Your Humble Narrator

Keeps shutting down for no reason that I can fathom. I'm sure i'll figure it out.

Tebati can have a dagger, plenty of weaponry left from the last attack...


Might be bad RAM. With a laptop, might also be a problem with overheating. Could also be malware of some kind.


Your Humble Narrator

Suspect its an overheating issue.


Might see about getting a laptop cooling tray then.

Indeed... perhaps the traditional caveman plus club approach?


Male Human (Mwangi - Bas'o tribe) Barbarian (Brutal Pugilist archetype) 4

Reading over some of the in-thread discussion over how to approach the Bandu to retrieve the stolen lass is making me look forward with trepidation to Qhude hopefully managing to catch up with them...

"if they do come we must bloody them to the extent that they will not dare strike a second time..." is how Qhude is approaching it... and he has not a single voice of reason to stop him back at the caravan presently...


Male Human (Ijo) Monk 4 (Zen Archer)

I thought you might enjoy that last bit.


Male Human (Mwangi - Bas'o tribe) Barbarian (Brutal Pugilist archetype) 4

I will promise that I'll bring part of him to help with the negotiations....


Male Human (Mwangi - Bas'o tribe) Barbarian (Brutal Pugilist archetype) 4

*ahem* - strange as it may seem Qhude does have an idea that might lead to us retrieving Bethany without any further bloodshed... honest :)


Make sure Tebati gets her bane off first if you're going for a fear effect.

Sorry for no posting today; I have a miserable cold and can barely think, let alone get in character. I'll try to have Tebati react to Qhude's arrival in the morning; I'm sure she'd have something to say about it. :)


Male Human (Mwangi - Bas'o tribe) Barbarian (Brutal Pugilist archetype) 4

Rest up and get better Joana!

Look forward to seeing exactly how Tebati and Jakob take in Qhude's makeover :P


Your Humble Narrator

Theres been some inference before with Bane + Fear so I should just clarify; Bane doesn't give a shaken condition so doesn't make the shaken condition any more fierce (and opponents dont get a save VS intimidatation).

As the shaken condition gives a negative to saves, the preferable order is probably intimidate (skill) followed by bane, followed by Jakobs cause fear..

Edit: Ah I see, its in reference to the warpaint ability. Carry on then!


Your Humble Narrator

P.S- Its a Guisarme not a Bardiche :)


Male Human (Mwangi - Bas'o tribe) Barbarian (Brutal Pugilist archetype) 4

Sorry about the weapon bugger up - not sure where I got bardiche from now... Don't know where I'm getting the faulty memory and mis-representations from - perhaps early onset senior moments?

At least some guisarme interpretations have an axe-y bit on the head as well.


Your Humble Narrator

Yup.
