Game Master Isaac Duplechain

As Newhaven rises, threats besiege it from all directions. To the north, the news of the last heir of House Rogarvia threatens the start of a new war. To the south, an empire of trolls and monsters grows.

The bear hugging section was named Temple of Erastil, though I find that funny because Berrin was the one the bear was trying to hug, but the tatzylwyrm fight isn't far off ;) Maybe Tatzylwyrms in Heat or Dancing with Wyrms. I wouldn't dream of naming it anything degrading to Verik of course ;P Like Of Clerics and Wyrms, Mating of Cleric and Tatzylwyrm or Verik's Infactuations.


I believe I'll call it Jogging over Tatzylwyrms


Failed Wild Empathy Check?


Then I would be naming every other section Failed something-or-other check ;)

Ah yeah sorry you can't use Jogging-over-Tatzylwyrms, as that is Verik's Fae name when he goes frolicking in the forest... :0

I took Jabber to the wardens as that seemed to make more sense as I thought about our entrance back into civilized lands. sorry if I ruined any plans for Jabber's Big Day of Finance. I can still send him your way if things don't work out.

Yeah, as I was writing up my last bit, I had to go back and look, but I don't think we ever received word in game of the doings in Santuary. So I wrote it so we all don't rush immediately to the castle as some had already set off on separate tasks.


@Akiros; The messenger at the ford explained the situation to us, I'd assume that he handed the letter to us at that point but then again 'assumption is the mother of all f%+@ups!'

Why? You reckon we're beeing too hard on Akiros?


Waiting on Akiros's reaction to being magically commanded and disarmed.

Once we've got that in, we'll move on to the next story arc.

Strap in, folks. I've got a storyline for everybody.

Nah it's fine - I just wanted to take him into account and not leave him at the gate, as his development and that of the kobolds could be pretty interesting and entertaining. A little brevity to the storyline I think as opposed to the lizardmen, whom I expect we will have executed in a few days.

Hehe GREAT -- every time Barcas says something like that I'm wondering if we should have stayed out in the wilderness looking for moon radishes ;)

@Berrin & Akiros -- there's one thing that Verik will bring up in-game at Council the next time we have to discuss leadership issues, but I think it warrants a quick OOC player discussion as well. Verik will bring up that Akiros should take the Marshal position left behind by Corwin, and Berrin should become General of the army/militia.

Verik would have several reasons in mind to do this, but out-of-game I think that might be a better fit for Berrin's Tactician Archetype and Cavalier class, as well as play up the "Hero of Stagfall" aspect to his character. That's not to say that Akiros could not have standing high rank in the army if he takes the field, but Akiros as head of the law enforcement aspects of the realm make more sense, particularly after he had to keep order in the crisis after Corwin's death.

Anyway, just wanted to throw my 2cp in there and Verik will put this up for consideration in-game.

Why do I feel worried when I should feel excited? C'mon, at least give us a hint. No only joking ;) Can't wait.

@Verik & Akiros; It was always assumed Berrin would go into the generals seat when Jemini came back, beeing the Hero of Stagfall and all that but that was before Akiros became a PC and got a say in the matter. I haven't really considered any other position for the big guy but I'd like to hear what Akiros thinks.


Btw. Jemini had some idea about Jemini and Berrin ruling together irc, I'd like to hear more on that idea as well. A steward doesn't necessarily need to step down though the king/queen returns, he's just less visible.

No, no not at all. Both your and Taisper's actions are totally warranted. He just tried to kill himself for frick's sake. I more was asking to know how much the gang knows of what's gone on, and also as to how that will affect their reactions to Tandlara (who, remember, is currently comatose in the cot in Akiros' room.)

@Verik & Berrin: Can't say the thought hasn't ever crossed my mind as well. Berrin seems a bit too big of a figure in Sanctuary to be just the Captain of the Guard. Plus he's a Full Founder. So it makes sense to me. That being said, I'm sure Akiros won't be at all thrilled to give up his position as General, especially after all the hard work he's done putting the army into shape and keeping the town in one piece. I don't think there's too many ways that the switch can be made to look like anything other than a demotion to Akiros. Some of the soldiers might not like it either, but that's up to Barcus.

But maybe if the Corwin angle is used, carrying on the torch for his murdered friend and all that? And maybe he could take some of his top men with him? Plus, after the last few weeks, he should be looking pretty good in the Guardsmen's eyes I think. Anyway, just an idea. Guess we'll see how it all works out in council session eh? ; )


Taisper's up.


Hope Taisper posts before the dice roller refreshes. I was half-way through the post when I realized it wasn't just me and Akiros battling and I'd like to keep the rolls.

Oh, and also, we had a very large tree branch come down in our back yard last night that ripped all the lines out of our power pole. As such, while we got power back within a few hours, we still have no internets since we have to wait 'til the tree guys can clear everything away so the cable company can get us back up and running. On top of this, I leave for a major trade show (Sweetwater's GearFest - kind of a junior NAMM, sort of) in a couple hours and won't be back until very late Saturday night. As such, I may not be able to post again until Sunday, and if I do, it'll just be short updates.

Just a heads-up.

Well Taisper is going to be out for the weekend, and I would speculate that he assumed that the Castigate + Disarm was going to bring Akiros to his senses. So uhh...I mean is this the deal that Akiros has to be completely rendered to staggered/unconscious for him to regain his senses?

I dunno. But it's Taisper's turn so I guess a DMPC is in order.

Well to be honest, that's the way I'm seeing it. He's sick, wounded, and litteraly out of his mind with grief and rage at the moment. He just stabbed 'Sarah' through the heart with his sword, again, and I don't really see him just shaking his head and saying "oh, right, sorry 'bout that, lost my head for a bit. So anyone for tea?"

I'm sensing that the direction this has taken may have upset some folk, and I am truly sorry for that, as that was not my intention in the slightest.

I have always aimed for realism in my PCs, and given all that he's been through and what just happened, his reactions seem pretty realistic to me. But of course YMMV.

Once he's out, we can move on and perhaps forget this nasty little event transpired. I'm sure Akiros will be wanting/needing to do so

EDIT: if everyone would prefer, we could just say that Berrin and Taisper beat him unconscious, which will be pretty easy to do in his current state, and fast forward from there


That might be what I do when I get a few moments to make a post. I'm trying to get Julian down for his mid-day nap, and he's having none of that.


I didn't know that AoO dmg affect a grapple attempt, someone point to the page pls so I can read up.

Performing a Combat Maneuver

When performing a combat maneuver, you must use an action appropriate to the maneuver you are attempting to perform. While many combat maneuvers can be performed as part of an attack action, full-attack action, or attack of opportunity (in place of a melee attack), others require a specific action. Unless otherwise noted, performing a combat maneuver provokes an attack of opportunity from the target of the maneuver. If you are hit by the target, you take the damage normally and apply that amount as a penalty to the attack roll to perform the maneuver. If your target is immobilized, unconscious, or otherwise incapacitated, your maneuver automatically succeeds (treat as if you rolled a natural 20 on the attack roll). If your target is stunned, you receive a +4 bonus on your attack roll to perform a combat maneuver against it.

When you attempt to perform a combat maneuver, make an attack roll and add your CMB in place of your normal attack bonus. Add any bonuses you currently have on attack rolls due to spells, feats, and other effects. These bonuses must be applicable to the weapon or attack used to perform the maneuver. The DC of this maneuver is your target's Combat Maneuver Defense. Combat maneuvers are attack rolls, so you must roll for concealment and take any other penalties that would normally apply to an attack roll.


Ah! Thx.


Hey Khaladon I was looking over you mount 'cause I've been working up Valnyr and I'm wondering how'd it get so powerful? Are we supposed to be basing them of the bestiary stats with the advanced template instead of the druidic list?

btw I think it should have Light Armor Proficiency as well as a bonus feat.

It's certainly possible I did it wrong Sigz. I don't recall at the moment what I based it on, but if you, or anyone, could point out any mistakes I'll happily correct them


.... I seem to recall Isaac telling us to use the advanced template around the time of the gnome fight now that I think about it, don't know what you guys discussed during creation, that's why I'm asking.

I'm going post hunting, I'm sure it's somewhere here in the ooc.


Male Human Samurai-Ronin 4/ Oracle-Battle 3 | AC 24/ T12/ F23, HP73, F+8/ R +4/ W +7, Init +1(Roll twice), Percep +6, Sense Motive +10

Good huntin'. Lemme know what ya find.


Considering that you were defending the gnomes, wouldn't you call it the Lizardfolk/Kobold fight? Calling it the Gnome fight makes it sound like you were slaughtering the lil guys.

I can build you the basic mount in Hero Lab.


Not in the ooc, checking IC.


DM Barcas wrote:

Sure, that would be great. I can't find where you told us too, but I see I'm using the advanced template during the lizardman (talk about being politically correct) fight.

Anyway. Bed time.


I probably just suggested it so that Valnyr wouldn't get shredded immediately.

You may eventually want this feat.

Hey Mr. DM, so is it permitted to raise Akiros to 5th now?

And how about loot? Did old Malga have anything on her? She had that acid dagger at least, no


Yes! Sorry for forgetting.

Malgorzata had a +1 acid dagger and +1 glamered studded leather armor. I'll check if she had anything else, but I think that was it.


@Jemini; There was no final number for anything regarding the loot, the discussion sort of died down.

Berrin wants the Sash of the War Champion.
Nikolai expressed interest in the Belt of Giant Strength.
Zander expressed interest in the Elven Cloak.
It was suggested that Jemini gets the Ring of Protection +2.
Verik wants nothing.
Taisper wants nothing.

Discuss.

Were you going to add Malgorzata's stuff to the list Sigz?


It's in. Cheers.

Are you claiming anything Akiros?


Berrin wrote:

hmmm... if one of the other frontliners want it, they are welcome to it. Otherwise I'll take it. :)


The thought was too make your already incredible AC even more incredible so It's yours I believe.

Nic; Belt?

Zander; Cloak?

Akiros; Anything?


Jemini; The ring puts you 1154 gp over the top with the 1000 you put into the farm. If no one objects I'm sure it's fine.

Edit; Miscalculated the value of the +1 Vicious Dageer as 2302 instead of 8302 which puts Jemini at 779 gp over the top.

Yeah no objections here -- I need to cash to make a few things as time permits in the near future.


Male Human Samurai-Ronin 4/ Oracle-Battle 3 | AC 24/ T12/ F23, HP73, F+8/ R +4/ W +7, Init +1(Roll twice), Percep +6, Sense Motive +10

If Jemini doesn't want teh ring and it's up for grabs, Akiros would take it, but he has no problems with their leader being as protected as possible or taking an extra share of the loot. In fact he be very happy for her extra safety.

Otherwise, if the Belt of Str is available, Akiros certainly wouldn't mind that either.

All that said, seeing as he was not in any way a part of the Harpy battle, Akiros would never even think of taking claim to any of that treasure unless it was presented/gifted to him.


Meh. This is OOC, you want it, claim it and we'll figure out the IC later.

The way the loot system is supposed to work is that the one who has the most 'credit' has first dibs, so effectually you could claim the ring before Jemini 'cause she took out the 1000 gp. Same with the cloak going to Zander or if you end up contending with Berrin for something later on f.ex.

Even after we sell everything and split the gold Jemini and Zander will still 'owe' and the rest won't get all their due till later loot is gained so effectively Jemini and Zander will get last dibs on future loot till they right their credit balance and the one with the most credit will have first dibs before anyone else.


06/4709 - Control DC 27

10. Event: 1d100 ⇒ 48 (No event)

Anyone have a suggestion for what buildings to make? Last month was a bit expensive in terms of expanding up to Olegsgrav, so you only have 8 BP to build at the moment.


Male Human Samurai-Ronin 4/ Oracle-Battle 3 | AC 24/ T12/ F23, HP73, F+8/ R +4/ W +7, Init +1(Roll twice), Percep +6, Sense Motive +10

Where do I look so as to translate all of that into something that makes sense to me?

Well, I get most of it, but would like to understand the system better.

And Berrin, and all, that's cool and thanks. But to make things simple Akiros will just take the belt of Str.

Well wait I'd go with a different claimed hex for #6:

6. Claim Hexes: C13 (hex adjacent to Olegsgrav where Stagfall battlesite is)
7. Buildings: None (keep as is this turn)
8. Hex Improvements: Road C13, Farms C13: -3 BP

Though that will not even out our consumption (should be 1BP at end of turn), it puts us one month of our goal of claiming D14 and the potential gold mine there. Leaves us 8BP in treasury for next turn and with some luck we'll have enough for the gold mine expansion and that economy boost.


Zander will pass on cloak. The +1 Cloak he currently has is more useful over a +5 to stealth of the Elvenkind cloak.


I agree with Verik, the gold mine is first on the list, the tower second unless Isaac knows something we don't and ain't telling ;)

Khaladon; The belt has been claimed by Nikolai iirc, with you two on the same credit level you guys either have to roll for it or discuss but note that Verik has craft wonderous item so he can make you said belt for the same cost.

Meowzebub; Noted.
