"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?"

Male Human (Ijo) Monk 4 (Zen Archer)

You can cast a second Light on a pebble. This will cancel the first Light spell and then the pebble can be placed in a pocket or shoved into the dirt to hide it...if necessary.


Your Humble Narrator

Silence monk! What do you know of spellcraft!!!

Tebati for President!

Seconded!

And we have our motto!
Nostrum regnum -- Suo nos sis ut. Vel vos teneo non. Quisquis

And I would have you know Jakob has no problems with free love. Being roped into a political marriage by a strange lady in a carriage on the other hand....

Re light:
Wow never noticed that about light... Though it is functionally dismissable via the monk trick.

Re Choker:
You could just let the choker fill the usual head slot and avoid the issue. No functional difference from using a bonded headband just fluff.

Re Kingdom:
This is why we don't give Ansha the ring. The kingdom aspect would/will be nifty. I wonder how Jakob would react to real power. Hmmmmm...

Yes, please keep your comments along the lines of, "Ooh! Shiny magic!" ;P

Makes the availability of both light and dancing lights on the cantrip list make sense, since the latter is dismissable.

Since 'in an area of normal or bright light, this spell has no effect', Tebati's probably not going to even worry about an invisible light that won't draw any more attention to us than, say, the whole group of us approaching across the featureless plain.

How does Jakob feel about being roped into a political marriage by a Chaotic Neutral elf in a wagon? He has the Cha to be an attractive figurehead for her. If she's willing to settle for Utilinus for a decade or two, she should be able to put up with Jakob and then pick a new King-Consort after his all-too-human lifespan is up while she continues to reign as the Eternal Queen. :)

And our kingdom should totally be named Quisquis. :)


Male Human Haunted Nature Oracle 4 (Ac 20 Cmd 20 Will+4 Ref+2 Fort+4)

Actually Jakob as the possibility of out aging ansha. One of the side benefits of being able to change your type to plant may well be the ability to violate the old age rule. Mind you that means getting to capstone which I really doubt will happen.

The oracle road to immortality is not as clear as the monk or the Wizard but I think it is there.


Oh, right, clerics don't get a capstone. "They get 9th-level spells." Well, so do oracles and sorcerers, but they get capstones. :P


Male Human Haunted Nature Oracle 4 (Ac 20 Cmd 20 Will+4 Ref+2 Fort+4)

Well clerics get ALL the 9th level spells. A capstone is small beer compared to that.


Male Human

Jakob and Ansha, huh? Can totally see that happening. Ah, what a couple they would make! Sparks would... well, not so much fly as listlessly float. :-P

It does make for an interesting idea though, a marriage of convenience.


9th level Cleric/Oracle spells:
Astral ProjectionM: Projects you and others onto Astral Plane.
Create Demiplane, Greater: As create demiplane, but larger and with more planar traits.
Cursed Earth: Plants die, living creatures catch diseases, or dead creatures rise as zombies.
Energy Drain: Subject gains 2d4 negative levels.
Etherealness: Travel to Ethereal Plane with companions.
GateM: Connects two planes for travel or summoning.
Heal, Mass: As heal, but affects 1 subject/level.
Implosion: Inflict 10 damage/level to one creature/round.
Interplanetary Teleport: Teleport to another planet.
MiracleM: Requests a deity's intercession.
Overwhelming Presence: Creatures bow before you as if you were divine.
Polar Midnight: Cold darkness paralyzes and deals damage.
Soul BindF: Traps newly dead soul to prevent resurrection.
Spell Immunity, Greater Communal: As greater spell immunity, but you may divide the duration among creatures touched.
Storm of Vengeance: Storm rains acid, lightning, and hail.
Summon Monster IX: Summons extraplanar creature to fight for you.
Symbol of Strife: Triggered rune makes creatures attack.
Symbol of Vulnerability: Triggered rune gives penalties.
True ResurrectionM: As resurrection, plus remains aren't needed.
Winds of Vengeance: Grants flight; attack with wind.
Wooden Phalanx: Creates 1d4+2 temporary wood golems to fight for you.

Pretty lame, compared to 9th-level arcane spells, especially when I've never understood the draw of planar travel. And the really good ones cost 25,000 gp each. How many loans do sorcerers and oracles have to take out to use their capstones?

Honestly, I think we're missing the obvious choice for ruling couple right under our noses: Qhude and Unwe! :D

...N'bellocq and Lola?


Male Human (Ijo) Monk 4 (Zen Archer)

My 8 charisma would be a true blessing for our new community.


Male Human Haunted Nature Oracle 4 (Ac 20 Cmd 20 Will+4 Ref+2 Fort+4)

You would be the 'Silent Cal' of our young nation.


Male Human (Ijo) Monk 4 (Zen Archer)

I could pull that off as a Supreme Court Justice.


Male Human Haunted Nature Oracle 4 (Ac 20 Cmd 20 Will+4 Ref+2 Fort+4)

Well we have our magistrate!

Do you think Qhude would make a good diplomat?

The problem is that a choker logically fills the same slot as an amulet or necklace, not a headband.

And yet, in your avatar picture, you're wearing it as a circlet. Very fashion-forward.

Ansha:
Longstrider may have expired, but Tebati still has 10 feet of base speed on everyone else in the group. You shouldn't have to worry about being the first there. :)


Give me Queen Telandia's Viridian Crown and I'd gladly wear it as a circlet!

Joana:
Honestly, it's less "worry about being the first one there" and more, "I'm going to try to look like I'm leading the charge...and then not be involved in the fight at all." All about appearances! ;P


Ansha:
Ah, more a "Qhude & N'bellocq, I totally intended to rush into melee to defend you if only I hadn't broken a heel on the way here and then there wasn't room." And here I thought you were only concerned about your personal safety. ;)


Joana:
Exactly!

14 Charisma means you could do mechanically worse :P His demeanor might be a bit confronting for some courts... but there are nations to the East and North that would probably react better to a brusque barbaric diplomat.


That Wisdom might hurt a bit if he has to roll social skill checks, particularly if it involves Sense Motive. Speaking of which, I am really tempted to blow a feat on Additional Traits and pick up the Calistrian faith trait "Holy Schemer" from Faiths of Balance. Sense motive as a class skill with a +1 trait bonus would probably help in any future games Ansha plays with Utilinus.

I'm also half-tempted to boost Ansha's Charisma to 17 with the ability score boost at level 4. Not for any logical reason either--just because back in like, 2e, nymphs would occasionally take an interest in males with a 17 or higher Charisma. That, and I don't like even numbers.


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

The Wis penalty might hurt at the start... but surely he just needs to start hitting people when they start being sneaky? There's no diplomacy like gunboat diplomacy.

Though Qhude would really probably look to a Warden type role in reality. I wouldn't see him suited to a General role to start with, but that could be something he grows into. Really depends on the state of teh 'kingdom' we get to take control of.


Your Humble Narrator

Its my gf's birthday today and I expect the celebrations will continue until tomorrow. Don't be alarmed if I am a little scarce for a couple of days.


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

Probably an appropriate juncture to do a cross-post to all my more active PbPs about an interruption to my posting schedule that is imminent.

My wife is about 37 weeks pregnant, which basically means that the bun is fully cooked and ready to pop at any time. This means that at some point in the next 1 day to 4 weeks I will suddenly and without notice disappear completely from the interwebs. I can't say when or for how long, but it will probably knock me out for up to a week or so before my wife and I get back on our feet and I'm of somewhat sound and untired enough mind to jump back online.

So if I do vanish, please don't fret as I shall return :) I would just ask for some leeway on posting frequency for a while as we adjust to the new baby floating around.


Your Humble Narrator

Totally understandable and thanks for the notice- good luck!


You already have one at home, don't you, Mark? Best parenting tip for adding a new baby I have: You're constantly going to be telling your oldest that he's going to have to wait while you feed the baby or change the baby or put the baby down for a nap or whatever. Fairly often, when you're finally doing something with your older child, turn very sternly to the baby and tell it, "I'm sorry; you're going to have to wait until I'm done doing x with your brother." The baby is oblivious, and if the other is young enough (mine are 3-1/2 years apart), they'll totally buy it. Cuts down on the older one feeling neglected if they see the younger one occasionally getting fed the same line.


Your Humble Narrator

Thats an awesome tip. I'll try and remember that one when my time comes.


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

Yep - we've got a three year old at home to play servant to as well. Tip is indeed a good one Joana ;) we're lucky enough to have two family members coming through town as well to help out for the next month or so; the hope being there's enough attention being lavished everywhere to keep both old and young in order.


Your Humble Narrator

The guisarme is masterwork Qhude, it was mentioned earlier IC but no harm done.


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

Excellent good AK - will update onto my profile.

I know is was mentioned I got a good look at it while it was being plunged into my body and its of excellent quality but I didn't want to presume.

If you're still hanging around these messageboards two babies from now, I'll remind you. ;)

Still on the birthday bacchanal? Shaping up to be an even-slower-than-usual weekend with so many people out of town.


Who all is out of town?


No one in this thread that I'm aware of, although it's Easter weekend in Orthodox countries so F. Castor might be busy.

The DM and a player in a game AK and I are in; a player in one of my other games; and Mark ready to drop everything and rush to the maternity ward at any moment. :)


Ah, right.

I should get free this evening. Theres a BBQ today first.

Not at the maternity ward... yet - though given we had some show this morning it will most likely be in the next day or two ;)

to be sure that N'bellocq and Bethany are still proceeding unaccosted and unpursued

And people wonder why Qhude turns to drugs... unloved and uncared for :P


Hey, Ansha finds Qhude quite...intriguing. (What's that, you say? Your Wisdom is 8 and Will is a weak save...?)


Tebati just assumes Qhude's going to be okay; he can handle himself. :) N'bellocq she feels a bit protective of, and Bethany is an obvious noncombatant.

Once she hears the story, though, she's going to have to have a talk with Qhude. Champions of Angazhan indeed! ;)


Ansha's going to probably shun Qhude and N'bellocq for a week after she hears about that part.


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

Tis merely a jest is all. I'm half assuming the little token to be a cursed item that will slowly eat away at Qhude's admittedly flimsy sense of decency... though Qhude's retelling of the tale will likely gloss over the specifics of what the old guy was saying. Bethany will probably be invited to Ansha's for tea and spill the beans though...


Well, if he's ashamed enough of himself for not immediately disavowing any association with a Demon Lord that he leaves it out of his retelling, I suppose that indicates there's hope for him to develop some sense of morality yet. ;)


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

Actually more a combination of Qhude's ignorance of who Anghazan is combined with a perception that it was an irrelevant detail.

Qhude came for Bethany, and the old man offered a means of getting her back. However the old guy justified it to his followers is on him. Qhude sees it as a pure win by getting the girl back without either him or N'bellocq ending up dead.


A perfectly reasonable True Neutral way of looking at it, if you're not a cleric. Tebati would mostly have a hang-up about it due to loyalty to her own goddess -- and Qhude taking a nice Bonuwat boy like N'bellocq and putting him in a position where he's hailed as a champion of another deity. Honestly, she'd have the same qualms if the colonials started hailing the two of you as champions of Abadar (and don't think Utilinus doesn't have that in store, if we succeed at his task. :P )


For her part, Ansha just has a very complicated relationship with evil Outsiders, particularly demons. Though she's not really above dealing with demons and devils, she's leery about other people that are involved in any way with them.

EDIT: Not like her retailored Hermean Blood feat, Master Manipulator, doesn't leave the possibility of being hounded by demons in her (and the party's :D) future. Hm, maybe she can try to make contact with Angazhan and try to play Angazhan against Nocticula.... ;P


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

Well we'll have to see what N'bellocq says about it and whether Bethany rats out the saviours that plucked her from the jaws of the cannibals ;)


Ve haf vays of makink her talk. ;)
