Hydra's Fang MAP // Kortos Envoy MAP

Welcome. If you are a player in the game, please post your Character, your PFS #, and also a brief description of your character, (what other people would see), Race, Class <and Archtypes>, what scenarios you have ompleted, your Fame, Faction, and any special boons or the like you may have (and anything like that I may not have thought of).

If you have not, please build an actual avatar with a typed up character sheet for your character, and post with that. I am hoping to have everyone post 3-4 times a week min, and up to 2-3 times a day. I'll try to DM as i see the players want to play, and being a PbP, we are not restricted to a specific time frame like face to face games would be. So if everyone wants a lot of RPing, that's fine and I'll try to accomidate. If people want to rush through and get to the end, that's fine too. I am a pretty open GM, (within the confines of PFS), so if you want to try something not really in the rules, let me know out of character, and we will see. If you have questions, (especially if your a new player), feel free to ask.

A few things of note about PbP, that are a little differnet. For one, we are somewhat going to be on the honor system. That means if you say you have a Paizo shirt for a 1/game reroll, I'm not going to check your purchases or anything. Im also going to be posting information ina spoiler format to speed up the game, typically Knowledge checks. So, if you roll to low, I'm going to trust you not to read it.

One thing I would also like is for each player to establish some sort of basic action for when they are not able to post and everyone is waiting on them. Or, if they prefere, to have me or another designated player roll and act for them (excluding using any consumible gear unless it is absolutely needed). For instance, a healer might say that they just want their character to "Ready an Action to Channel Energy if someone takes significant damage", or "Aid Another to boost AC for _____".

Shadow Lodge

Hydra's Fang MAP // Kortos Envoy MAP

Oh, one last thing, for easy of play and to speed things up, on your Character Profiles, in the Sections for Race and Class, can you please enter a format similar to this:

Race:
Race/Class - HP: #/#, - AC: #/T: #/FF: # - Perception: +# (extra senses like Low-Light Vision)

Class
F:# / R: #/ W: # - CMB: # - CMD: #, Speed: #

(filling in the numbers as pertinent to your character), so that if I roll an attack, I don't have to look up your character or say something like "If a 16 hits you, 7 damage."

Let me know if that doesn't make sense.

The character is local to Varisia. Full description,Background and Google Docs Barrin's Character Sheet are on the character's page.

Since this is my first society play ,please fell free to let me know if there is any info missing or wrong about the character.I am still doing some minor changes on the character! :)

Shadow Lodge

Looks good, but I do not see Feats or Traits. I see a +2 to Fort saves, which I'm guessing is a Trait or Feat Bonus?

Andoran

Male Human Wizard Level 1, HP: 8, AC: 12 , T:12, FF:10, Fort +3, Ref +2, Will +3, CMB:0, CMD:12, Init +2

Good guess! Is the "Great Fortitude Feat". I listed them on the full character sheet.Click the link on my previous post and select the second sheet. Please let me know if you see it.

I prefer to keep just a summary on the character's page and having the full calculation info on the google sheet. Is that OK?

"G'day all - I'm Angruf Bergwuerz. Many of my peers find me to be a hopelessly optimistic chatterbox. I'll try to keep from annoying you too much. <hrumph>"

Angruf Bergwuerz (PFS# 58034 - 2) is an almost painfully stereotypical young adult dwarf. Angruf's coloring is a bit lighter than most - hair and beard a dirty (but golden) brown/blond, eyes green. What little of his skin you can see between hairline and beard and in his hands, is somewhat swarthy - olive-complected and tanned. His clothing is subdued and traditional, including a broad cloth/belt in a striking tartan of blue/black and dark green. He wears a suit of well-constructed, but unremarkable, studded leather armor. Crossed on his back he wears a dwarven war axe, and a complex guitar-like instrument (balliset). Also hung from his backpack are a heavy crossbow and a small, flat drum (tabor).

Angruf is a dwarf from the heart of the dwarven homeland. Professionally, he's a Bard (Savage Skald, Songhealer), and an adherent of the Shadow Lodge faction. By devotion, Angruf worships the dwarven pantheon, but most particularly Trudd, the junior son of the pantheon, and god of strength. Angruf (and the player, Daniel) are new to the PFS, and has not completed scenarios, nor accrued Fame, Prestige, or boons.

OOC: profile has a summary sheet, full sheet is available on google docs, linked above, and linked out of the profile.

Hey, checking in, will review my stats and edit tomorrow.

Im having trouble with home internet and not really sure what is going on. Im just posting this as a warning for the moment that I may need to postpone the game for a little until I can figure out what the deal is. Not quiting though.

Hey, just checking in. Are we still on, have you sorted out your internet issues?

Shadow Lodge

I still do not have internet except through my phone. Its very annoying and hopefully it will be back soon. I apologize for the delay.

aren't we still light a few players as well? has anyone checked in with those folks invited but not yet posting?

Shadow Lodge

Hydra's Fang MAP // Kortos Envoy MAP

We are. I was going to be able to hit up the threads and mention it to afew of the next on the list players once I get real internet back.


Any News?

Shadow Lodge

Hydra's Fang MAP // Kortos Envoy MAP

Ok, I have internet back (oddly it vanished in a storm and now returned in an even bigger storm). Tomorrow I will throw out some invites so hopefully we can get this started.

Shadow Lodge

Hydra's Fang MAP // Kortos Envoy MAP

Just a heads up, I have just sent out a lot of invites to the game so we can get started, and hopefully we shall have a party soon and can begin. I do want to apologize to everyone for the initial delay.

Please, feel free to discus things here, explain your characters, or just chat about the game.

Male Human Barbarian 1/Bard 2 - HP: 30/30, - AC: 18/T: 12/FF: 16, - R:12/12, L:4/6 F: +4/R: +5/W: +4 - CMB: +5 - CMD: 17 - Perception: +7, Sense Motive +1

I present Leonel Goldscale, #37563-1. He was a witch, but I re-did him under the new rules (the witch was my first PFS character ever, and sucked). Leonel is a strong but lean-looking human barbarian, with a winning smile, good hair, and a way with words not quite as persuasive as his way with a sword. Cutting monsters and cutting deals is the name of his game, and as such, Leonel represents Quadira in his adventures.

Andoran

Male Human Wizard Level 1, HP: 8, AC: 12 , T:12, FF:10, Fort +3, Ref +2, Will +3, CMB:0, CMD:12, Init +2

Angruf: I was thinking that if your gonna have detec magic cantrip I can prepare something else instead of it; like "daze". What you think?

Leonel: Do you like being enlarged?

Qadira

Male Human Barbarian 1/Bard 2 - HP: 30/30, - AC: 18/T: 12/FF: 16, - R:12/12, L:4/6 F: +4/R: +5/W: +4 - CMB: +5 - CMD: 17 - Perception: +7, Sense Motive +1

I'd be pretty okay with power-attacking with an enlarged greatsword from 10 feet away.

Please take the penalties in consideration. But if you still agree I will have it prepared.

Since this is PFS I guess is normal for wizards to discuss with the group the spells that will better help everybody. :)

Yes, I suppose we are sorely lacking in healing. You raise a good point. If you have a more useful spell, that might be good to prepare. But if you want to prepare a casting of it, I'm sure we could find a good time to use it.

Concur on detect magic - one reason I like spontaneous. :)

I'm also fairly 'heal'ey for 1st level....

Andoran

Male Human Wizard Level 1, HP: 8, AC: 12 , T:12, FF:10, Fort +3, Ref +2, Will +3, CMB:0, CMD:12, Init +2

At level 1 wizards don't do big damage compared to other classes but I can prepare several support spells like: daze, enlarge, sleep and color spray.

That way you do the main damage while I focus on crowd control and buff/debuff.

I will still be able to do some damage but I will focus on support if Leonel and Mr. Arandorian (the rogue) are gonna play the "heroes".

Sounds like a good strategy.

DM Beckett: Are we gonna use Google docs, Roll20.net or something similar for battlegrids,maps and resources?

Shadow Lodge

Hydra's Fang MAP // Kortos Envoy MAP

I would like to use Google Docs, but I am not really familiar with it and how to set up a map with movable characters. In addition to that, for most PbP's I've been in, people have a lot of issues being able to access Google docs either from work or from their phone when they do posts throughout the work day.

If someone can show me how to use Google Docs, I will give it a try, but for the most part, I have all the maps and a few character pics up on Imageshack, which I will just link, which have grids on them already (a-z and 1 - #). That way, at the very least we can all just download the pic, or click on the link and say something like "I move from F3 to J11".

But like I said, if someone can instruct me, I'll give it a try.

Hey guys, I'm still here. Long name, I know, just call me Val. Ready to go when you are, sorry if I kept you waiting. I'm willing to try whatever approach you like to maps. Some things are blocked by my company's firewall some aren't but even then that usually isn't much of a problem if I can check in between rounds from home.

Guys! I tried roll20 yesterday night and it looks really easy to use. Also is free :)

Please check this 3 min video tutorial about it and tell me what you think.

Ok so we have a 5 member party and I guess that no one else will be responding so we can go ahead and get started. Around noon, Ill post up info in the gameplay section and do a look over of the characters.

Please feel free to chat amongst yourselves until then. Ill give the videos and sites a look to, but I already have all the maps ready to go either way.

:)

Davian and Val, could you copy/paste some of the quick combat stats to your characters "race" & "class" section of the Character Sheet.

Leonel is that the characters avatar or just something you liked. You do not have to change it Im just wondering if it is how they look at all (race)?

Qadira

To be honest, I intend to go Dragon Disciple with Leonel, so I figured this avatar was fitting. Leonel is human, however. So for now, it's just a picture I like.

Leonel, no worries, I was just curious.

Val and Davian, thank you. It just makes running a PbP easier.

I'm working on kicking off the game.

Andoran

Male Human Wizard Level 1, HP: 8, AC: 12 , T:12, FF:10, Fort +3, Ref +2, Will +3, CMB:0, CMD:12, Init +2

I just finished preparing my daily spells.

Leonel: I did not prepare "enlarge person". After careful consideration I decided that it will be dangerous to use at level 1.

By the way guys I won’t be able to post this Sunday. If anything happens the GM can post on my behalf. This is my auto script:

I follow the group wherever the majority goes and I use acid splash cantrip if needed. I never attack first. If I am the first to attack I just ready action acid splash to trigger after the barbarian or the rogue attack something.

Shadow Lodge

Hydra's Fang MAP // Kortos Envoy MAP

Just a head's up, Gameplay has begun. If you are fairly new to PbP, at the top of the thread, you will see a few extra tabs. Just click on "Gameplay" for the actual game.

Please, for the most part, use the Gameplay thread only for in character posts. Obviously, you can use the [ooc] codes for out of character messages there too, like if you have a question or just a little joke about something your character isn't actually saying, but try to keep that to a min on that thread so it doesn't distract from the game.

GM: I think your approach is actually the best one. We don't even have to use coordinates as long as we see the map and our descriptions of the fight are acceptable to you.

CRB PAGE 8:Combat in the Pathfinder RPG can be resolved in one of two ways: you can describe the situation to the characters and allow them to interact based on the description you provide, or you can draw the situation on a piece of paper or a specially made battle mat and allow the characters to move their miniatures around to more accurately represent their position during the battle

Arush Imhentep (Osirian Human Male Cleric)
PFS# 62343-1
New PFS character with no scenarios completed, no fame
Faction: Osirion

Arush Imhentep (pronounced as uh-ROOSH ee-MEN-tep) is the son of a lesser noble from the coastal city of Totra in the nation of Osirion.

He was sent to study at the Temple of Sarenrae in the capital city of Sothis at the age of 10. His family fell out of favor due to a failed attempt to subvert the entrenched power base by a relative and he was "encouraged" to leave both the Temple and Osirion.

Guided by Sarenrae (he thinks) to join the Pathfinders, he has allied himself with the Osirion faction despite his (in his mind) unfair treatment simply because he firmly believes in the superiority of his homeland and her people over all others.

Arush's physical appearance is typical of his people: olive skin, jet black hair and dark brown eyes. He is, however, generally taller than most of his countrymen standing at 6'2" and weighing in at a slight 175 lbs. He wears loose silken clothes of pale yellow and light blue along with a purple cloak.

EDIT: I should mention something about me...

My profile is Logan1138. I am an old-school D&D gamer but am new to Pathfinder and PFS. Looking forward to a new experience!

I'll recheck. I may have sent someone to the wrong game. I thought we had 6 in this party.

Shadow Lodge

Hydra's Fang MAP // Kortos Envoy MAP

Ok, I did send someone to the wrong game. My apologies.

I mixed up the players and the characters a bit.

Arush, I need you over in The Frostfur Captives, please. I can't believe I did that. :(

The roster for this game should be:
1.) Barrin - PFS 58289, Human Wizard 1 (Cheliax)
2.) Angruf - PFS 58034-2, Dwarf Bard 1 (Shadow Lodge)
3.) Valanyonnen - PFS ?, Half-Elf Rogue 1 (Sczarni)
4.) Leonel - PFS 37563-1, Human Barbarian 1 (Qadira)
5.) Davian - PFS ?, Human Oracle 1, (Sczarni)
6.) Carak – PFS ?, Half-Elf Gunslinger 1, (Andoran)

And I do need to get a PFS number for Val, Davian, and Garak, and a character number from Barrin.
