Yep, you have enough xp to level... That is why I put in the third lizard.
So start thinking about your third level choices for after your next rest.

@Gatherine: How did you get a 19 by taking 10? You don't have any points in Handle Animal, so it's just a charisma check; at +1, taking 10 should get you 11.

More generally on the baby shocker lizards: Tol thinks this is a colossal waste of time, but, like all RPG dwarves, beneath his gruff exterior, he has a heart of gold. Plus he's a beast rider, he loves animals. He will bluster and fuss, but he will try to raise them for Gatherine if she goes on about how cute they are. Even so, it will be a tough roll for him; After leveling up, he'll have +6 to handle animal. Looks to me like the DC to rear shocker lizards is 23 (15+3 for HD +5 because they are magical beasts). Maybe if the roll is made independently for each, we can hope to get one or two? How many are there? Maybe Aid Another? Also, the roll is made halfway through the process; I don't know how long it takes shocker lizards to grow up, but at the pace APs go, Tol may be quite high level by then...


Whoops. I thought you rolled and added ten. My bad.
I took two. Didn't expect something the size of a Jack Russell terrier to start out Fine sized inch long. Ironically Gatherine's sister bullied a wild goblin dog into obeying her in the middle of battle so it dumped the goblin commando off its back and turned on its former rider with a look full of intimidating menace..and all the while wearing glasses and a pink Mohawk.

Look up E-Terah Deepheavy on the board to see her...goblin busting. And gruff Tol raising baby shocker lizards! D'awwwww!

I'm pretty sure that means that we're still 2nd level until we rest next.

Yep...so...who is up for a nap? rofl. I kid, I kid...


Male Mazinger-type Fan of Go Nagai level 38

I'm :)


M Elf Wizard 4

Sorry, everyone, I've got a really busy week right now. I won't be able to post until Thursday at the earliest. Feel free to DMPC Tol if necessary.


Male Mazinger-type Fan of Go Nagai level 38

No problem, after all Tol isn't the only one absent atm :(


Male Mazinger-type Fan of Go Nagai level 38

When are we going to level? It is 2 weeks since DM said we had enough xp.


You can level when you rest... which can be whenever you wish. It is noonish now, but you did have a rough battle so there is certainly enough reason for to take a nap. I assume you would want to investigate the boat first. Just let it be known if you are backtrackinng to the path down to the beach together (which I believe is the consensus now) or if anyone is climbing down vines here.

Shadow Lodge

Mook lvl 12

I belive we are all backtracking together.


M Elf Wizard 4

I'm going to be camping this weekend. I might have a post tomorrow morning, but after that I won't be able to until Sunday.


Male Mazinger-type Fan of Go Nagai level 38

Is GM having problems lately?


lil bit. Got behind on school when Borderlands 2 came out. Now trying to catch up... have just been doing hit and run posts in my games.


M Elf Wizard 4

Hahaha! I assumed that the crate was empty, because everyone else had spoilers I wasn't reading, and none of them were looking in it.


Dwarf Beast Rider Honor Guard (Cavalier) 3; AC 18/11/17; CMD 17; Saves +5/+2/+1 (+2 vs. pois., sp, sla); hp 28/31

Regarding leveling up:

At the moment, I'm planning to take Power Attack, which is a good solid feat for any melee grunt. However, I want to give a plug for teamwork feats. They are awesome. If anyone wants to get some teamwork feats, I will be happy to join in. With three main melee characters, we would get good benefit out of Precise Strike, Outflank(which we can't get yet), and/or Pack Attack. But really, I have to say that Lookout is probably the best.


Female Human (varisian) Magus 5

Iolana would need a Weapon Focus before anything else,but Precise Strike, Outflank or Lookout are tempting.
For the rest have no idea on how to advance her;think will do some test with herolab.


Female Elf Bard (Dervish Dancer) 4/Fighter 1

Precise Strike seems most useful to me, if only because Lookout's 'surprise round' conditions are a bit situational.


M Elf Wizard 4

Situational in that it requires a surprise round?


Female Elf Bard (Dervish Dancer) 4/Fighter 1

Yeah. I'd prefer to avoid surprise rounds in general, where possible!


Female Human (varisian) Magus 5

I don't like having to deal with surprise rounds either.They are only useful to classes with the Sneak Attack feature after all.


Female Dwarf Gunslinger 5(Pistolero)

Two weapon fighting and pistol whip


M Elf Wizard 4

But that's the point of Lookout... It lets you avoid surprise rounds. If you wouldn't have gotten to act, now you do. If you would have gotten to act (say, because you are the one doing the surprising), now it's like a regular round instead of a surprise round. Sneak attack is icing on the cake, but just being able to attack the enemies (or reposition, buff, etc.) one more time before they attack you is awesome.


Male Mazinger-type Fan of Go Nagai level 38

It can be interesting.Iolana needs Combat Casting and Weapon Focus (scimitar),so maybe it is better she takes one of those;with Combat Casting she could start using her class features, so far she has been close to useless.
It can be voted on anyway, if others want to take Lookout i won't object.


Female Dwarf Gunslinger 5(Pistolero)

All yours


M Elf Wizard 4

With three casters who spend time in melee, Shielded Caster might be another one to consider. It stacks with Combat Casting, and applies to all concentration checks, not just defensive casting and grappling. With Tol's heavy shield, he'd give +6.

DM Bloodgargler:
There's one level left before Tol is able to switch out Gorra for an exotic mount. I'd kind of like to leave it up to you to introduce the creature into the story, and things will flow better if Tol has a chance to meet it and befriend it before he abruptly switches. Depending on the creature, a situation where we kill an adult, and then realize that there's a defenseless baby left, would be fitting, if perhaps a bit cliche.

My top choices mechanically would be Allosaurus or Lion/Tiger, with Elephant/Mammoth being another good one.

Incidentally, my plan for Tol's future is not to emphasize the mounted combat, lance-charge aspect, but rather to use the mount as a flanker and combatant in its own right. I'm planning on getting teamwork feats and maybe some TWF/Shield bash stuff. If I can get Handle Animal high enough for it to be worthwhile, I may also get some mundane animals too, so that we can mob opponents with pack tactics.


Female Dwarf Gunslinger 5(Pistolero)

Ooh, Gatherine is gonna ride u for getting a new pet


M Elf Wizard 4

Don't be silly! It will be something sensible and responsible, like... an Allosaurus... ;-)


Male Mazinger-type Fan of Go Nagai level 38

Why not one of these :)
Optional mounts


M Elf Wizard 4

Do those get a leg-hump attack?


Male Mazinger-type Fan of Go Nagai level 38

I don't think so, but can assure you their tongues are deceptively long.

edit:they use to hit me right in the face when i think i'm keeping their muzzles at a safe distance.


Male Mazinger-type Fan of Go Nagai level 38

Better move this to ooc.
I think it isn't the same weapon for qualifing for feat prerequisites; if Iolana picks Weapon Focus Scimitar as her 3rd level feat the cutlass doesn't get the +1 to hit, but Iolana could live with it, especially if she picks Combat Casting,which is very useful to a Magus.


@Tol re:mount - gotcha

@Iolana re:cutlass - That is how I see it. Just same stats, not the same weapon for feats or abilities.

All - Ready to move on to going to sleep? Plans and/or preparations for next day? Pretty close to being ready to level your characters?


Male Mazinger-type Fan of Go Nagai level 38

I'm still trying to make up my mind as to what take for Iolana, but am eager to go on.

Shadow Lodge

Mook lvl 12

Srry i havent been around much guys. Latetly I have been overwhelm by work and its been hard to keep up with my pbps. I am holping things will get better soon.

Shadow Lodge

Mook lvl 12

I am planning on going up to the 4th lvl of Oracle with Mugambi to grab 2nd lvl spells than doing 2 lvls of barbarian to enter Rage Prophet.

Question to the party:
Which feat do you guys think will be more usefull to my oracle and the party at 3rd lvl: Power Attack or Turn Undead?


Male Mazinger-type Fan of Go Nagai level 38

Turn undead, defo.Even with two barb levels yours is a caster type.
I think i can skip Weapon Focus (scimitar), Iolana will benefit more from Combat Casting, so she will manage to cast in melee a bit more.

She'll anyway need WF sooner or later, and scimitar is the most logical weapon for her (Hoping the game will get that far, at 10th level she will have access to fighter feat equal to half her level, so she will qualify for Weapon Specialization but need Weapon Focus for that).


Does two wpn fighting give u two attacks per round?


M Elf Wizard 4

I took a look at the calendar the other evening, and saw that my deadline to get my thesis finished is rushing up. I hate to do this, but I'm going to have to take a break from PbP for the next month or so. I just uploaded Tol's level 3 character sheet to my profile, so he should be current. It's up to you guys what you want to do; if Bloodgargler wants to DMPC Tol for a while, or if you want to put the whole campaign on hiatus, then I'd like to join up again in late November, but if you'd rather kill him off and get on with it, then I'll understand.


Gath - When you fight with a weapon in each hand, you get an attack with each weapon.... but there are huge penalties. With the two weapon fighting feat, if your off-hand weapon is a light weapon the penalty is reduced to -2 on both weapons.

Tol - No sweat. I can DMPC until you have time.


But does a pistol count as a light wpn?

Shadow Lodge

Mook lvl 12

Nope


Two weapon fighting usually works best for melee.
You can use two pistols firing one in one hand one round, and firing the second in the other hand the next round. You can do this without two weapon fighting. With or without the TWF feat, you still need to put one away to reload.

I'd consider some of these

precise shot
rapid reload
deadly aim
quick draw


Deadly aim...


Male Mazinger-type Fan of Go Nagai level 38

Still have to update Iolana, but it doesn't look like we are making it in a haste.


Hurricane harlot sandy I beat you!!

Ahem. Gatherine updated to lvl 3. Tol will never die! He is Gatherine's cohort babysitter!!


Female Elf Bard (Dervish Dancer) 4/Fighter 1

Looks like we're all updated, barring Tol (who will not be rejoining us for a couple more weeks, presumably).


Male Mazinger-type Fan of Go Nagai level 38

Haven't checked myself,Gordon said Tol was updated to 3.Looks like the DM is having troubles too.
