You know what to do here.


Male Half-Elf Cavalier (Order of the Dragon) 3

Just checking in.

Andoran

Male Human Ranger 3

Havrin checking in. If there's anything we can do to help out, just let us know. Thanks for taking this on!

Andoran

Are we gonna try and grab one more player to replace you, or just go with what we have?

In the near term, at least, I was going to play Retsiji as a DMPC. There are enough things to keep track of in Kingmaker, though, that I'm not sure I can manage that in the long term. I do recommend having a full arcane caster in the party. So let's see how things go in the next week or so--that'll give the group some time to firm up, so if/when we recruit someone else you'll be able to bring them along quickly.


Male Half-Elf Cavalier (Order of the Dragon) 3

Just as a heads up, Im taking my vacation from work this Friday May 27th through Monday June 6th.

Normally, Id be able to post from home, since we arent travelling anywhere for more than a few days during that time, but weve been having bad weather lately, and my internet is being wonky. I can try to post from my phone during next week, but if you Im slowing the game down, feel free to bot me.

I'll let you know when we get the internet working at my house again.


Weakly Godlike Entity

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll also be able to post only sporadically over the long weekend (USA holiday Monday); will be out of town Friday to Monday.

Incidentally, Jacyn, good luck getting into Black Fang's RotRL game. It's been entertaining, but between the initial loss of the DM partway through the first melee (sound familiar?) and the disappearance of one of the more consistent posters, we've been kind of coasting for the past few months.


Male Half-Elf Cavalier (Order of the Dragon) 3

Thanks lol. Thats the kind of luck Ive been having with PbPs lately. Im in a Curse of the Crimson Throne game as well, and weve lost a GM and a player too so far. We are going pretty consistently right now, though the posting rate isnt as fast as Id like.


*pokes Kano Kaijitsu aka godsDMit aka Jacyn Frestarn*
Good sir, you're presence is requested at the home of one Brodert Quink in the town of Sandpoint. (Translation: you're in!) :)

DM Carbide:
Sorry for the intrusion, just letting godsDMit know they're in.

Andoran

Isn't it funny that the one thing we're agreeing on is splitting the party?

Andoran

Well, if the DM is up to running that type of thing, It seems like a rational thing to do. We are obviously of such different interests and agendas that the group may not stay together on its own. I've thought of having Adam leave to protect his new allies, since everyone seems downright intent on killing them or "bringing them to justice", but unless the DM agreed to run something like that, I don't think it would work out. :(

As I mentioned earlier, Adam is perfectly happy to kill unrepentant bandits. He would prefer to do so in more amusing ways of course, but that is a separate conundrum.

I guess here is as good a place as any to discuss what the plans for repentant bandits. We gather them up and send them somewhere to be tried? And then what happens to them? House Surtova likely sends them to the slave pits or the mines. That's a waste of a quality-trained eye and an intimidating voice that can be molded into a charismatic one, not to mention skills in weapon training, and to some degree an expertise in intrigue.

Andoran

Well, hopefully I've come up with a suitable solution for the present issue, at least. It's quite possible the stupidest idea I've ever had (as a gamer) right after splitting the party, but at least in character it seems to be the most sensible thing.

It'll be interesting, at least. I'm still thinking through how the hopefully-ex-bandits will react, because I sure didn't expect that. It makes a great deal of sense in hindsight, though.

"And I contend that an oath made under duress holds no value," Havrin responds in a calmer tone. "If you were a bandit who was captured and told that the only means of ensuring your continued survival would be to swear an oath to renounce banditry, would you not so swear? And would you truly feel honor-bound to uphold your oath once your captors let you go about your merry way?

Shugs - it worked fine for Jean Valjean.

OTOH, I suspect Jean Valjean was of a slightly different alignment than our sometime bandits. OTOOH, the River Kingdoms put a very high premium on oathkeeping.

I dunno. He made several references to how he was "before" and that the time in chains had pretty much turned him into an animal. I don't remember if he went into specifics (it's been over 10 years since I read it) but pretty sure he made mention of some of the depraved things he did in prison.

That's right! I forgot about the Six River Freedoms. In that light Havrin will have to re-evaluate his skepticism regarding the (former) bandits' oaths.


Weakly Godlike Entity

I am going to have limited internet access through Sunday; am at a hotel that charges for it, so all I have is my phone.

Andoran

Where'd everybody go?

Andoran

I'm still around... =)


Weakly Godlike Entity

I was wondering that myself.


Weakly Godlike Entity

Apologies again for my weekend absence; I had mentioned in a couple of places that I'd be traveling, but had missed doing so here. I'll take care of the next round tomorrow.


Weakly Godlike Entity

That's weird; I posted last night and it never showed up here. The post is still in my posting history, though. Anyway, here's what I wrote:

Are any of you going to GenCon? I'm not, but I'll be on the road elsewhere. Unfortunately, my internet access is probably going to be kind of spotty from Friday to Sunday, so I'm going to put the game on hiatus until Monday evening.

Andoran

So are we going to try and grab another player to replace Retsiji as soon as we get back to Oleg's? I don't know how much longer we'll be until we get there but it might be a good idea to put a feeler out there so the new player has a chance to get the character built by the time we're ready.

Andoran

Either way is fine with me, but I think it might be a good idea, as he is our main source of arcane power.


Weakly Godlike Entity

I've posted a request for a replacement for Retsiji in the Gamer Connection thread. As submissions come in, please take a look at them and let me know if any look like particularly good fits (or particularly bad ones, for that matter).


Hello just wanted to drop and just let you know I did post on your recruitment thread and Ill have character up shortly (on brothers comp and all my things are on mine) Thanks again and guys great roleplay I enjoyed the interaction :) hope to hear from yall soon. Also sorta interested in making a sorcerer experimentalist sorry if I break up the posts on here (forgive me lol)


Male Half-Elf Cavalier (Order of the Dragon) 3

Out of the three people who have input a character so far, my preference falls to:

Hu5tru - sorcerer
Kiradia- wizard (conj)
DM Aaron- Summoner

I put the sorc first cause we really need a full arcane caster, and we have a large party already without adding summons.

Obviously, whatever you pick is fine with me though. :)


Weakly Godlike Entity

Anyone else have any comments on the field as it stands? If you're rather send them by email, my address is on my profile.

Andoran

Sorry I haven't weighed in on this yet - my vote goes for the wizard, Katya Volkv. A close second is the Magus Lythal Nemur. Both have good character write-ups, and while I like the flavor of Lytha's slightly better than Katya, I think Katya would fit in our party better.

Andoran

Couple of good new character write-ups. The sorceress Tahl is interesting but might be more drama than we want in our party due to the vampire blood. That's entirely up to you though. The wizard Mikam's description if full of good description and imagery and really makes the character feel alive, possibly more than any of the other entries so far.


Male Half-Elf Cavalier (Order of the Dragon) 3

I like Mikam, too.


Male Human Ranger 3

Hmm. Several good candidates to choose from.

I liked Hu5tru's Tityanna Medvyed the best, too bad she pulled out.

Of the remaining candidates, I think I like the sound of ZetaGilgamesh's Mikam Orlovski and Kiradia's Katya Volkv the best.

DM Aron's Poshment Underhill sounds interesting too, but then bards are my favorite class.

Not sure if that really helps much!


Male Halfling Bard 2 / Cleric 2

How many bards do we need...? :P

Wouldn't Adam like to have a backup singer?


Weakly Godlike Entity

Bards are like inquisitors--you can have a decent party that's all one class, with the right archetypes and weapons & spell selection.


Male Half-Elf Cavalier (Order of the Dragon) 3

I once ran a party consisting of a Paladin, a Rogue, and 3 Bards through Master of the Fallen Fortress. Fun times. :P

Andoran

Heya all! Just wanted to say thank you to DM Carbide for allowing me to join in. I've been looking to do a Kingmaker campaign for a long time and I hope we can go all the way through the AP as a group.

--------------------
Background: A woman of sharp intellect and driving passion. Heavily influenced by the death of her parents during an Inquisitor raid on her home town to remove a demon cult, she was orphaned and taken to a wizards college at a very young age after an occult symbol of Nethys was found scarred into her back, she has been heavily influenced by the loss of her noble status and feels slighted by fate at times. She believes she is entitled to more than what she has been given and that can make her seem abbrasive at times. However, like most wizards, her pursuit of knowledge will generally come before most other concerns.

Personality: Being from a noble family without any claim to her bloodright and raised among wizards and nobles children, she is sensative about certain subjects of her life. She attempts to exude an aura of nobility that sits awkwardly on her shoulders. In the persuit of knowledge she is singularly focused and will lose herself in her studies if allowed to.

Appearance: A green eyed, red haired woman with tanned skin, a strong hint of strange blood runs in her veins as her eyes are slanted upwards and the pupils have an almost cat-like slit. She wears scholarly robes of soft silk with embroidered images down the right side and skirt. A red sash wraps around her waist and holds under the folded cloth her myriad pouches. Her pack bulges with the amount of things kept inside of it and she always smells faintly of jasmine and sulfur.

Kingmaker: Learning of the chance to study the mysteries of the Stolen Lands is too good an opportunity for Katya to miss out on so she has decided to sign up with the expeditions being sent south. Also, in the back of her mind she has begun to formulate possible plans to regain the good graces of the nobility in this venture, and perhaps convince King Noleski Surtova to give her back her title.


Weakly Godlike Entity

Welcome, Katya! I'll start to catch you up over in the IC thread, behind spoiler tags.


Male Half-Elf Cavalier (Order of the Dragon) 3

Welcome

Andoran

Welcome to the group! I look forward to catching up to you at Oleg's and getting you into the party.

Also, I love this adventure path. That little turn of events was just as unexpected as it was brilliant. I'm still trying to figure out how Bea's gonna react to it, but major kudos.

Andoran

Hehe...that was an epic two-line sentence by Jacyn. Made me smile.

Andoran

Hey, welcome to the group. Adam here. :P


Welcome aboard.


Male Human Ranger 3

Welcome aboard, Katya!


Just a quick note that I'll be away for the next couple of days. NPC Simn as necessary.
