Your Humble Narrator

Sorry i've been a little slow. I'll get back to regular updates today.


Just wanted to say the leader's avatar looks more like the Matrix than Pathfinder. Are those raybans? :)


Its his actual picture from the AP. His face has tribal war patterns painted on it.

Edit: Probably looks a bit better given full context. Link- Click Here

Ahhh.. its paint rather than glasses and a goatee :)


On hindsight, I could probably have imported him from the latest Deus Ex game...

Do you take the blue pill or the red pill?

This weekend and next week I'm moving my mother to live with us, not sure how much time I will have for pbps, I hope it doesn't hold you up too much.


Your Humble Narrator

Is this a permanent change? Are you dropping out? Sorry your statement wasn't particularly clear. Hope everythings ok.


Female Elf Witch 3 (favoured) / Rogue 2 HPs 19/27

The move is permanent, but the disruption to pbps should be temporary. I will try and get posts in, but as you're hitting a bit of combat etc, just wanted to let you know.

NO to dropping out ... you kidding AK ... :)


Your Humble Narrator

Good, u had me worried :).

I'll bot Chi in combat until further notice then? Or shall I give you a 12 hour posting window each time before botting.


Female Elf Witch 3 (favoured) / Rogue 2 HPs 19/27

12 hour will do ... Thx Alex


Human Expert 4 / Doctoral Student 5

Hey guys,

I had some second thoughts on playing a Barbarian. Reading over the material for the Mwangi Expanse and the slavery controversy got me thinking, so I'm going to roll up a different character. DM Alex, gave it the OK.


Female Aasimar Cleric (Varisian Pilgrim) 3/ Sorcerer (Empyreal, Tattooed) 2

Here he is. I think I have everything except my Human bonus feat. I cannot decide what to take. Any suggestions?


Your Humble Narrator

Serpents Skull isn't particularly well suited for crafting feats so i'd warn about Craft Wondrous item. There will be some downtime but I doubt you'll be outfitting the entire group in it. Remember you can do 250GP worth of it 'on the road' per day.

Re: Spells, you get all the Cure line for free.

Stats wise, i'd tone dexterity down to get charisma 20 by now. Juju mystery (and Oracle itself) is very dependent on charisma. Could take improved initiative.


Your Humble Narrator

Added one extra purchasable perk within the Pathfinder faction, viewable in Campaign Info.


Female Aasimar Cleric (Varisian Pilgrim) 3/ Sorcerer (Empyreal, Tattooed) 2

Hmm... I hadn't actually planned on using CWI for outfitting the party. I wanted to take advantage of the mystery Craft Juju Fetish. After all, nothing says jungle shaman quite like a voodoo doll. But according to the campaign rule, it would take nearly a month to craft one without taking time out of adventuring.

Would it be possible for me to create a custom feat to speed up the magic item construction of only juju fetishes?


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

Looks interesting. I've fancied playing an oracle of bone for a Sargavan game which is rather similar (and like the avatar). I'll have to think up a different backup for Marcus :)

Just want to say though that character wise I don't think the party are as likely to take to a necromancer as they were to a jungle druid. After the Shiv and the encounters there Marcus at least will be a bit leery about creating undead.

So some interesting tension there.


Female Aasimar Cleric (Varisian Pilgrim) 3/ Sorcerer (Empyreal, Tattooed) 2

I know, right? This class caught my eye with this part: "Necromancy spells that create undead lose the evil descriptor when you cast them. Mindless undead created by your magic are of neutral alignment, while thinking undead possess your alignment." So a Juju Oracle, using create undead, can make ghouls and vampires that are Lawful Good. Craziness.


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

An interesting meta-physical difference thats Marcus will be missing entirely :)

Unless of course you can create a zombie dinosaur for him to ride. Then all will be forgiven.


Female Aasimar Cleric (Varisian Pilgrim) 3/ Sorcerer (Empyreal, Tattooed) 2

That can be arranged, my friend. Are you more of a triceratops or tyrannosaurus kind of guy?

I think Alex just died at the thought of a possible LG Tyrannosaurus zombie mount. Ridden by a Paladin.

He's not the only one...at least a little bit of my soul rotted away with that thought.


Your Humble Narrator

Amboze i'd strongly recommend you look at Harmonic Spell for your next feat.


Male Gnome Bard (Archivist) 5

Sweet! I believe I shall.


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

Marcus sulks *while burning a little bit* ... no war elephant stampede, no zombie dinosaur, next you'll be saying the monkey army is out too...


Male Gnome Bard (Archivist) 5

What?!?!? No poo-flinging monkey army?!?!?! I quit!!!!


Female Aasimar Cleric (Varisian Pilgrim) 3/ Sorcerer (Empyreal, Tattooed) 2

Question:

As a Juju Oracle, I can create Neutral non-intelligent undead and LG intelligent undead. The desecrate spell allows me to, "Furthermore, anyone who casts animate dead within this area may create as many as double the normal amount of undead (that is, 4 HD per caster level rather than 2 HD per caster level)."

The only problem is the big fat Evil descriptor attached to the spell. Is there a way around this? I have maxed skill ranks in UMD, so using a scroll is not an issue. I'm just looking for a way to amplify undead creation without the icky Evil descriptor.

Edit: Would casting the occasional Evil spell specifically for the purpose of creating Good-aligned creatures cancel each other out morally?


Your Humble Narrator

I'll think about it, let me get back to you.


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.


Female Elf Witch 3 (favoured) / Rogue 2 HPs 19/27

Have fun AK !!


Your Humble Narrator

Everything ok people? Theres a distinct lack of timely responses this combat. It seems like the busy period of Christmas never quite settled down all over the pbp boards...

I mean I could bot all three of you but i'll be playing rather suspiciously with myself and Chi.


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

A combination of recovering from a heavy hangover yeterday and waiting for Ambroze but no problem from my end and I would like to increase the posting pace. Momentum (or lack) tends to promulgate itself.


Female Elf Witch 3 (favoured) / Rogue 2 HPs 19/27

I'm with Marcus on this ... Chi doesn't want to face the AK alone ... ;)


Female Aasimar Cleric (Varisian Pilgrim) 3/ Sorcerer (Empyreal, Tattooed) 2

@DMAK - Any progress on your consideration of the desecrate spell?


Your Humble Narrator

I suspect i'll allow you to use Consecrate to bolster the power of the Lawful Good, wendo spirits you are channeling. Not got the mechanics 100% down yet.


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

Guys on hols til the 7th. Rushing home to pack for 5am start tomorrow. Suspect I'm going to have very limited access so please bot me.

I'd say don't kill Gelik but looks like that horse has sailed.

that horse sailed?

Also we don't know he is, but if he isn't I might've saved my life, but that's hopeful thinking :p

I'm hoping people like the slightly wuxia combat descriptions, like Umagro's fight with Tun'ada. I also hope Tun'ada doesn't mind me taking liberties to describe his attacks and defences- I know its hard to do this as a player as you don't have all the information to make assumptions with.

If you have a problem with either of these things please speak up, because we are heading into the levels where frankly, Pathfinder becomes a game that transcends mortal skill and power and becomes more wuxia in nature, then rapidly moving into the realm of superheroes and demigods. And I want it to read as badass as possible, especially with such an epic fight scene.

I mean- we have a crowd, the possibility of Tun'ada being sent hurtling through the air to land in a painful heap below, dual-wielding kukri's matched against a pair of claws, two barbarians with bite attacks and a backdrop of smoke and fire. This could be the iconic duel of the chapter!

Tanner, how are you holding up? Once this fight is over one way or another, we can begin to tie you in.


Human Expert 4 / Doctoral Student 5

I'm doing fine. Is everyone okay with introducing a character that will be focused on raising the undead? I'm always willing to change things up if people don't want to see a Lawful Good juju zombie tyrannosaurus rex running around.

Because that will happen if I go with this character as-is. I realize this is pretty far outside the typical adventuring experience, so please speak up if you would like to see something else. I'm more than happy to make everyone else in the party happy.


Female Elf Witch 3 (favoured) / Rogue 2 HPs 19/27

I'm happy ... not sure how Chi will react to the undead ... but then the spirits of her ancestors are coming to protect them ... so not a bad thing after all.


Your Humble Narrator

Any responses to my questions? I feel neglected :)

Tanner- I think the concept may prove to be a little problematic but i'm not liking how many times i've had to say no to you already :)

No problems.


Human Expert 4 / Doctoral Student 5

If it's going to be problematic, then I'm fine with changing it. Besides, you can always change the mechanics without changing the personality of a character.

I couldn't agree more.

Long weekend ... oh goodeeee!!


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

Back from holidays although work unfortunately has ideas about sending me to SAF. Should still be able to post though. Loved the tribesman mano e mano battle.


Male Mwangi (Caldaru) Human Ranger 3 (Shapeshifter) / Barbarian 2

I just wish the coward wouldn't have run off. ;)


Your Humble Narrator

He was good to go for at least a round or two more, but the fire had him kind of worried. He had no real desire to kill you beyond defending himself, Tun'ada felt.
