Male Human Paladin 8 (HP:88/95, AC: 28, Touch: 16; +10 Fort, +5 Reflex, +11 Will)

If a spot ever opens up on our campaign, we should recruit this guy.


Dungeon Master

Is there an interview that goes with him? He sure looks like a character?

Well, it sure has become quiet without Bofus. Do you guys have any ideas or plans of how to continue?

What do you need from your DM to keep this going? Are you all in need of a rest?


Dungeon Master

Tirion, thanks for posting as much as you do. You are always on the boards. If you want to wait and let others post, I completely understand. However, if you are enjoying keeping the plot moving, that's fine too!


Male Gnome Sorcerer/8 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

It is double sided. I want to keep things moving, and like now, I think that I can do it singlehandedly to some extent. But as soon as we need real input, I will slow down.


Dungeon Master

So Mantooth and Thordak, how are finals going? Is there an end in sight?


Man-Dwarf Dwarf Ranger 8 (HP: 105/105, AC: 22, Flat: 19, Touch: 15, +14 Perception(+2 on Stonework/fe/ft) Hunter's Tricks: 6/6

Not really.... I'm kind of just getting started, and I will have something like 35-40 pages all together to write before the end, which is May 11. I should still be able to stop in once in a while though...

It always feels good to take a break from studying to kill a few hobgoblins. Just think of them as that really annoying guy who sits in the back and asks really dumb questions to annoy the prof.


Dungeon Master

Well, Rush is about to release their next album. I just bought tickets for my brothers and me. We will be there for the opening night of their tour in Manchester, NH on September 7th. Wahoo!


Male Gnome Sorcerer/8 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

September 15 in Chicago - I may go if I can find someone, the person I went with last time is out of town that weekend.


Dungeon Master

Welcome back, Bofus! Did you have a good time? How is Chip doing?

Andoran

Male Halfling Thief/8 Init: +12 HP: 21/51 AC: 28 Touch: 19; Perception 14 (18 traps; TRAPSPOTTER)
Attacks:
Rapier: +15/+10 (+6 BAB, +6 Dex, +1 size, +2 ench); Bow +14/+9(+1) (+6 BAB, +6 Dex, +1 size, +1 bow/+1 acid arrow)

chip is great! He had pretty major foot surgery last year and was hobbling around like a gimp last year, adn his foot looked like a bad horror movie prop. Now he's "just" limping and cna't walk for very long, but it's way better than it was. He's awesome though.

he's in a weekly D&D campaign . . . but the elitist in me hesitates to call it that. their adherance to teh rules and propensity toward staggering Monty Haulism remind me of the 8th-grade games we used to play. Pretty silly, really. :-) but he likes it, so it serves its purpose!


Dungeon Master

I remember those Monty Haul games back in 8th grade. I remember taking such advantage of a DM who is now a player in this campaign. He took my elven thief, Aldor, to 23rd level in a solo adventure. I took Blackrazor out of White Plume Mountain and with my ring of regeneration, portable hole and tons of other magic items, I was near unstoppable. My DM thought that my character's CN alignment was bordering a little too close to CE. But I tell you, we had a blast!!!

I know what you mean about the elitist attitude. Nowadays, I have such a pride in keeping my games balanced and exciting. I cannot help myself but I get very competitive and want this to be the best game in town! I like to think I have chilled out in the last twelve months, as I've come to realize that this is just about having a lot of fun. But either way, none of this compares to a great tabletop game with all your friends. Well, I'm glad Chip is having a good time. Is he playing Pathfinder or is he playing D&D 4e?

Hey, have any of you read David Edding's Belgariad? I read it about twenty years ago and I totally forgot how good it was. I've been reading it again and it is very difficult to put down.


Male Gnome Sorcerer/8 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

I know nothing about Aldor getting to 23rd level. Actually I do not recall White Plume Mountain as DMHW is the one who owned that. We actually went through some pyramid that had tons of levels. It was like module B4 or B6 or something like that. Pretty much Aldor would near in, kill whatever it was in one round and then we would go to the next level.

Oh, and Aldor made most CE players look good. Pretty much he introduced himself by putting his sword in your back.

The Belgariad was awesome, read that many years ago as well.

Attacks:
Rapier: +15/+10 (+6 BAB, +6 Dex, +1 size, +2 ench); Bow +14/+9(+1) (+6 BAB, +6 Dex, +1 size, +1 bow/+1 acid arrow)

The Belgariad was my first real intro to fantasy--my mom bought me the first book when I was 12. I remember getting the last book of the Mallorean (the sequal 5-book series) in college; I couldn't wait until it came out in paperback so I got hte hardcover as soon as it was out, and read it in one all-nighter session. :-)

maybe I hsould read that series again, after I finish the Dresden Files.


My brother loved that series of books whenI was young. I think that I may have readthe first book over twenty years ago, but can't remember how it goes.


Dungeon Master

I am off on an AP Calculus retreat today. I am reviewing the entire course out of school today with my students. I will not be able to post until tonight. Have a great day, folks!


You too, Harp.


How did the outdoor adventure go? I have been watching a lot of Futurama on Netflix and now all I here is Hermes when I write for Mutamba, hahaha,no good.

OK, I've updated our group treasure with the stuff garnered from the Durgin/Bladebearer fight. I separated that out from the rest of our unsold loot, since Mutamba gets a cut of that. Can folks loko that over and see if I forgot anything?

DMHW, are the red steel longswords worth anything in particular, beyond they're typical "regular longsword" market value?

Mutamba, in case you weren't aware, we've been doing the following for treasure division:

* folks take items they can use based on reasonable need (we trust each other)

* we sell anything we're not going to use

* we take 10% off the top of all coin (including stuff sold) into
a "group pot" and evenly split the rest

* "general use" items like healing wands, restoration, bribes, etc can come out of (or go into) the group fund

I'm sure that if folks started to think they were getting gipped, we'd speak up.


Male Gnome Sorcerer/8 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

Yeh right, like I am going to trust a sneak halfling rogue to take care of treasure - although for some reason frequently there is more in the group pot after he visits the store. Tirion casually looks at the sky and whistles innocently.

Hey, I take from the rich and give to the . . . us.

and I'm not a sneak halfling rogue. I'm a sneak halfling THIEF.

Thieves are so AD&D


Oh the days not being able to swing a two handed sword in a kobold tunnel. I started a discussion about this one time and people almost lost their minds that you would nerf the game so bad that they might as well not play at all. Then this turned into a debate of how damage type was not indicative of how the weapon was to be used! Now the people where running around using the same great sword to thrust there way around everywhere. I finally let it go and asked why we don't have just three weapons and be done with it these days. Arghhh.


Male Gnome Sorcerer/8 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

3 weapons --> Greatsword, Rapier, and Longbow?


Choppy, stabby, shooty.


Male Gnome Sorcerer/8 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

I need a decision on the pirate campaigns, as you may have noticed, I have started making snide comments and posting strange videos. I just put this one up a few minutes ago, classic pirate clip.

Pirate Clip

I know it is cut a little short, but I did not have time to find a better one.

I have seen that clip before, but I cannot remember where. Was that Mony Python? My son just got a pair of Killer Bunny with Sharp Pointy Teeth Slippers.


Male Gnome Sorcerer/8 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

It is from the Meaning of Life. It is the short preview film. The film later invades the main film and attacks the executives in a meeting as I recall.

Awesome slippers.

You guys have been very quiet in the magic shop. Did I say something to offend your characters?

I've been very busy lately, so I've not had the time to devote to thinking about what I want to purchase/trade. And I need to think carefully, because this seems like it'll be the last time we can restock for a while . . .


Dungeon Master

Take your time. School is pretty busy for me as well! I don't mind the slower pace right now, I just want to make sure I am not leaving any of you impatient with the rate of posting.


Male Gnome Sorcerer/8 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

Just as an FYI - I may be out of service from the 18th until the 26th. My parents are having their 50th anniversary and I do not know whether I will have internet access where we are going. I will repost on this and all the other campaigns I am in in a few days, but thought that I would give you a heads up. My guess is that I will have some access, but who know how much and how fast - most likely it will be post via phone on a non-3G system.


Dungeon Master

Is that this month, Tirion? Do you know where you are going yet? Caribbean perhaps?


Male Gnome Sorcerer/8 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

Yep - where we used to go as kids. Last time I was there was 1980.


Dungeon Master

That is great that you can take the time off and be away from work. Will your office still keep running as usual?


Male Gnome Sorcerer/8 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

Depends on whether we have net access. It will be much less at the very least. I doubt it will be no posting, but very limited as my guess is the only access will be on my phone in the evening.


Dungeon Master

Bofus, I do not mind the idea of a vest of protection for role-playing purposes, but I am curious how it will affect game balance if it gives you an extra slot. What are all of your thoughts?


Male Gnome Sorcerer/8 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

I think the extra slot does create an issue. A vest is essentially either a type of armor or a cloak. Either way it is clothing in my opinion. However, there are other options - Bracers of Resistance, A ring of resistance, even a styling hat of resistance.

Andoran

Rapier: +15/+10 (+6 BAB, +6 Dex, +1 size, +2 ench); Bow +14/+9(+1) (+6 BAB, +6 Dex, +1 size, +1 bow/+1 acid arrow)

it's not an extra slot. See page 459 in teh core rulebook.


Male Gnome Sorcerer/8 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

Interesting, didn't realize that.

Magic Items on the Body
Many magic items need to be donned by a character who wants to employ them or benefit from their abilities. It's possible for a creature with a humanoid-shaped body to wear as many as 15 magic items at the same time. However, each of those items must be worn on (or over) a particular part of the body, known as a “slot.”

A humanoid-shaped body can be decked out in magic gear consisting of one item from each of the following groups, keyed to which slot on the body the item is worn.

Armor: suits of armor.
Belts: belts and girdles.
Body: robes and vestments.
Chest: mantles, shirts, and vests.
Eyes: eyes, glasses, and goggles.
Feet: boots, shoes, and slippers.
Hands: gauntlets and gloves.
Head: circlets, crowns, hats, helms, and masks.
Headband: headbands and phylacteries.
Neck: amulets, brooches, medallions, necklaces, periapts, and scarabs.
Ring (up to two): rings.
Shield: shields.
Shoulders: capes and cloaks.
Wrist: bracelets and bracers.

--> There is a reasoning for items in certain slots though. So you have to spend the extra cash for a +2 Headband of Cha/Wis/Int rather than three separate Ring of Int +2, Headband of Wis +2, Necklace of Cha +2.

Also, since identical bonuses do not stack unless it is untyped or a Dodge bonus (don't ask me why that one is different), if you had a cloak of resistance +1, boots of resistance +1, and a ring of resistance +1, I think that you would still only be at a total of +1 since all of them would be the same type of bonus.


Dungeon Master

Ok, Bofus, let's do it. I'll let you know if anything starts to feel unbalanced. However, to be honest, I am actually much more concerned for your safety! :-)

Alright, I am back! Sorry for the hiatus, but after 60 pages worth of essays and five exams in the last three weeks, I am now finished for another three months. I've read everything I have missed, and I am now looking for items Mantooth might be able to use from the magic shop.


Dungeon Master

Awesome! Glad to have you back, Mantooth. You may place yourself at the Mystic Aura and purchase anything up to 1000 gold pieces. If you wish to spend more, you may need to talk to Bofus and his contact that he has made acquaintance with. You are also welcome to join Mutamba's discussion with a group of people on the street.


Male Human Paladin 8 (HP:88/95, AC: 28, Touch: 16; +10 Fort, +5 Reflex, +11 Will)

Thanks! Anyone have any recommendations for items Mantooth should look out for? I was thinking about saving up for a beautiful set of armor, but if DMHW is worried we are going to survive..


Dungeon Master

You can never go wrong with armor for a paladin.
