I thought about using a giant frog here as it fits J's nature theme better but the mechanics of the tongue grab & pull made success even less likely than using the Mighty Pebble.

If I understand this correctly....

Step one: Tongue touch attack hits
Two: Choose either to Grab or Pull
.If Grab, get +4 on cmb and move target adjacent on success. Frog not grappled.

.If Pull, forgo the +4 and move target 5' closer if check succeeds.

Or do both happen? Attack hits then grab check and then pull check if grab fails?

Seems very complex....

Pity lightning elementals are not available. Metal mastery and spark leap are nice!.

Joana, could you narrate Kieran rp-wise for now and I will run him in combat?

I'll ... do my best. Suave quipster isn't my strong suit. :P


Male Human

Oops... Sorry about that. I have indeed read the PM, I just forgot to answer. So sure, I can give it another shot. I just have to give the new IC posts a read first.


Welcome back! :)


Male Human

You know, having read the IC stuff, methinks I should just let DM AK narrate Kieran's combat actions. Awesome descriptions!


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

And apparently Kieran's dice are on fire. You nearly soloed the central sphere in 2 rounds.

Also glad to see you back!


Yay! You're back!


Happy Birthday Stavros! :)


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

Sweet christmas!

X3 crits are nasty.


Your Humble Narrator

Considering how many of those Jakob has pulled off in this campaign I think he needs to stop pretending he is no good in a melee :).

Tebati- 10
Spheres- 9
Jakob + Elemental- 8
Akirra- 5

Tebati should be after the spheres, which keeps your us-them rhythm going.


Your Humble Narrator

Cool, can work with that.

Shhhh.... you'll jinx it!


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

Conundrum.

I do not want to block Akirra's action but the logical thing for J to do would be to move up and use reach to attack through K's space.

However if J does that and Akirra's attempt to move through the sphere's space fails then the closest legal position rule drops him into the spinning blades as a blade space is closer that A's last legal space which would be in line behind K and J.

Note the mighty pebble might make this moot but I am not counting on it.

Any advice?


Akirra is not moving through the sphere's space. He is moving around via B,52 (confirmed by Alex via IM as allowed). And if your actions render Akirra's irrelevant again, I have my retcon set in place.

Swing away! :)


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

Cool! I thought I was missing something. Thanks for the clue!

Excelsior!

It doesn't help that I forgot to actually include my move. If it is not too late J will move to A,54 before failing to stab the sphere. [dice=Re-roll if Tebati can reach me]1d20+6 Exactly the same!

Clearly, Shimye-Magalla has heard Jakob disparaing her powers and her holy driftwood and refuses to alter fate for him. ;)


Merry Christmas!


And a happy New Year, at this rate! (Also, bump.)


Your Humble Narrator

On it ASAP, juggling remote work with unexpected visit from in-laws...


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

Our DM is so buff they juggle in-laws. Once AK can figure out how to add the chainsaw it will be time to take the act on tour.


Your Humble Narrator

Sorry for hold up everyone, have had a hell of a week between work, illness and the return of my girlfriend. The good news is, this should mean a lot more time and stability for me. Updating tomorrow, with apologies.


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

Hey AK!

Map links are dead. I am getting 404's on both pyramid links.


I suspect it is because Alex has switched from imageshack to Google drive for maps. His imageshack account has likely lapsed. I'm sure he will transfer everything to Google drive shortly.


Your Humble Narrator

Photobucket is down, think that's the cause of it. I'll get you a map update of the level later today.


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

Sweet. Now to figure out what we missed.......


Your Google drive (combat) maps are working. The maps I believe Jakob is referring to are the campaign header maps which were/are hosted on imageshack. I'm not aware of which maps you have on photobucket.


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

Yup those are the ones. The links labeled "Pyramid, Level 1" and "Pyramid, Level 2" that display under the quote and next to the SRD reference and Kingdom building links.


Your Humble Narrator

Ah yes, I was going through an imageshack phase back then :).

Will sort.


Your Humble Narrator

Map Links Updated.


Male Human

Sigh... Since this is not exactly good news, I may as well do it the band aid way.

It seems work and real life have gotten quite busy indeed as of late, leaving me with far less time and energy than expected. This unfortunately leads me to the conclusion that I am lagging behind in my various games much more than I am comfortable with. And it does not seem as if it will be improving any time soon. So I have to cut down on the number of PbPs I am in and withdraw from some of them lest all of them perish.

This is one of those games.

So please remove any aliases of mine from the Current Characters roster so the campaign goes to the Previous Campaigns list.

I thank you for all the fun and I do sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this brings to the GM and my fellow players.


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

Well that is sad. I understand your decision, but it still makes me feel, bad. The Kerian/Tebati romance was a real high point for the game.

Good luck.


Male Human

...Kieran...

Sigh.

:-P

that may have been an accident. May.

Sorry to see you go Kieran.


Sorry to see you go.


Sorry to see you go as well, Kieran.

As a side note, anyone seen AK on the boards lately? Or did we lose him again?

Last activity as far as I can tell is Feb. 4th. :(

WE have AK sign!
This was posted to his Kingmaker yesterday.

I expected things to get better in March but then I had two staff members plucked out from under me the moment we launched our new systems and websites... For another project which has been fast-tracked and I have no faith in. I get them back in April, hoping to come off hiatus then... Sorry all.

So fingers crossed....


AK's job is an endless succession of crises. Once he gets past this one, they'll hand him another.

Go ahead, find my lack of faith disturbing.


Your Humble Narrator

Not disturbing, but sadly accurate to date.


I know someone who works as the manager for her parents' bridal shop. She's quite frankly overworked, and her parents don't seem to be interested in hiring an assistant manager. I kind of wonder if it just comes with working for the "family business."

Some businesses just operate that way as well - cut to the bone and tight to the edge.

First attempt at painting without lineart, based on this scene from before we got mired in the pyramid here. (NSFW.)


Anyone else read Beyond the Pool of Stars yet? Only a few chapters in, but it's kinda fascinating that it's a Pathfinder Tales novel set around Eleder and Sargava.


I recently ordered it after reading a positive review in a not-at-all-industry-specific magazine where I was astonished to see a Pathfinder Tale. It's still on my to-be-read shelf, though.

Dark Archive

No longer matters Drow Lich Epic level Wizard/Cleric of considerable ability

I have not gotten there yet.


On a semi-related note, I have been dipping my toe in the Pathfinder Society pbp world, and I'm curious whether it's possible to have online GMs sign off on Chronicle sheets saying I've read Pathfinder Tales novels. Would love to have that Prolific Reader boon.
