GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

I understand. Believe me, I did not plan to have the porcs kill anyone, but Higgs wanted to go out with a bang. death will and should be a rarity in the game. Unless you all want a much darker game.

I think being stunned actually fits well. Pony's are not used to murder.


Female Pegasus Pony: Wounds 0 | Dts 0 | Ftg 0 | Cha +2 | Pce 6 (+d6) | Prry 5 | Tough 5 | Bs 4

I favour it being a rarity. I say that after this fight, the ponies have a bit of a talk. Might make things easier to evaluate if done alongside roleplaying.


GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

I know that it is a bit off topic, but this is just two hilarious and awesome not to share!


Kind Of Hard To Tell? I Mean He's A Kobold And Everything, Not That I'm Racist... Kobold (smurf template; brony template) Witch 7/Fighter 4

Yeah, that was great. The Great and Powerful Bender. XD


Male Earth Pony Ws 0 | Ds 0 | Fa 0 | Cha +0 | Spd 6 (+d6) | Pry 7 | Tgh 8 | Bs 0

shep is honest, heroic to a fault, and built like a tank, there is only one logical response to seeing a fellow pony fall, and its not very good for the other guys :/


F Unicorn ( Ws 3 | Ds 2 | Fa 0 | Cha +2(+2) | Spd 6 (+d6) | Pry 4(4) | Tgh 3(3) | Bs 3) redraw cards of 5 or less

I knew there was something I forgot to mention,

Unless the GM houserules, when you gain bennies for a new session (or when advancing for the PbP) you actually reset your bennies, getting only three unless you have an edge or something that gives you extra.


Kind Of Hard To Tell? I Mean He's A Kobold And Everything, Not That I'm Racist... Kobold (smurf template; brony template) Witch 7/Fighter 4

Good to know! Thanks.


Stallion Unicorn ( Ws 0 | Ds 0 | Fa 0 | Cha 0 | Spd 6 (+d6) | Pry 2 | Tgh 4 | Bs 3)

Arg! I am having writer's block with this one. I cannot think on what to do. I just have no idea.


GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

OK, That hurt, alot. Shep needs to get up front and protect the skinny unicorns! Even if Night Falls, Element Al has Restoration which should be able to get her back into the fight, hopefully behind a meat-shield!


Stallion Unicorn ( Ws 0 | Ds 0 | Fa 0 | Cha 0 | Spd 6 (+d6) | Pry 2 | Tgh 4 | Bs 3)

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have been at a loss as to what to put up. I'll sleep on in and try and put out something tomorrow.


GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

Daunts
Extras that suffer a daunt are removed from play; they have fled, given up, or otherwise out of the fight. Wild Cards can take any combination of three daunts and wounds and still function: suffering a fourth daunt or wound causes them to become incapacitated.
Daunt Penalties

Daunts have their own penalties like wounds: each daunt a Wild Card suffers causes a -1 cumulative penalty to their Pace (minimum of 1) and to all further Trait tests. However, penalties from wounds and daunts are not added together, and Wild Cards instead suffer the highest penalty between them. For example, a character with one wound and two daunts (a -1 penalty and -2 penalty respectively) would suffer from a -2 penalty to their Pace and Trait rolls, as it is the greater of the two. If the character also had Edges that allowed them to ignore up to -2 in daunt penalties, they would still suffer a -1 penalty from their single wound.


GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

Bennies
You can use as many bennies as you want in a round, and you take the better result of the rolls. If you want to reroll a roll twice, you can, and choose the best of the three rolls.

You also have to spend a bennie if you make a soak roll.

Situational Combat Stuff
I Should Have posted this before. If you want to do one of these things let me know and I will go into more detail.

  • Aim Spend full round aiming, +2 to (ranged) fighting attack.
  • Area effect attacks
  • Automatic Fire Probably will not ever come up in this game. Probably.
  • Breaking THings
  • Called Shots Ignore armor, deal more damage, hit a small object ext. You must choose to use this before you roll. I let Element do this after the fact because He didn't know about it and with it he might be able to get through some of the tough armor this way.
  • Defend Cannot so any other actions but move, +2 to parry.
  • Disarm
  • Double Taps and Three Round Burst Probably will not ever come up in this game. Probably.
  • Get The Drop on someone
  • Finishing Move Probably will not ever come up in this game. Probably.
  • Full Defense No Movement or other actions. Roll Fighting +2 and use as parry for the round.
  • Gaining Up+1/ each adjacent ally or foe attacking the target, Max +4
  • Grappling This is what Lark is doing. Apposed fighting roll to entangle and possibly stun target. Target can fight off on their turn or act at a -4 Penalty. Grappler can start dealing damage in following rounds.
  • Improvised Weapons
  • Innocent Bystanders Don't roll a 1 when firing into melee!
  • Mounted Combat Would be really Funny Considering...
  • Non Leathal Damage
  • Obstacles
  • Off Hand Attacks -2 penalty with off hand attacks
  • Prone Grants cover versus ranged attacks, -2 penalty to parry vs melee attacks. No change for point blank shots.
  • Push Opposed str checks to Bash, Sheild Bash, or Knock Prone. 3" running Start grants a +3 bonus to roll. (I applied this as a penalty for Lark's push)
  • Ranged Weapons in Close Combat
  • Rapid Attack 3 attacks, -4 each. Wild die only rolled once.
  • Touch Attacks +2 to fighting Roll
  • TricksDistract a character for a -2 to their parry, possible shaken.
  • Two Weapons Can attack twice using the multiple actions in combat action. (so -2 to all action that round including these two attacks) The off hand penalty stacks with this for a -4 to the off hand. Edges can lower these penalties.
  • Unarmed DefenderAll animals are considered armed... attacking an unarmed target grants a +2 to the roll.
  • Unstable Platform -2 to Ranged Fighting Rolls while unstable
  • Wild Attack +2 to fighting roll and damage, -2 to parry untill next action.
  • Withdrawing from close combat All adjacent non shaken foes can make an attack against you for free. I advise defending if doing this.
  • Aim


  • GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

    Restoration:

    School: Abjuration
    Casting Modifier: -1
    Range: Touch
    Duration: Instant
    Trappings: White glow suffusing the entire body
    Restoration heals wounds and injuries, as long as it is used within an hour of them being sustained. On a success the target heals one wound, or two on a raise. Apply the target’s wound penalties to the Spellcraft roll (in addition to any you have sustained yourself). Restoration can also cure poison or disease if used within 10 minutes of the event.

    Element, with the restoration spell you heal 1 wound with a DC4 or Two wounds with a DC8. You take a -1 casting modifier penalty plus a penalty equal to the wounds. So If you are healing Element, your looking at a -4 penalty. You can spend a round concentrating on the spell to negate 2 points of the penalty.


    GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

    No Power Points
    Instead of using Power Points, unicorns simply choose the spell they want to cast and make a Spellcraft roll. The penalty to the roll is specific to the spell itself.
    Once cast, check the results below:
    • Success: The spell activates as usual.
    • Raise: A raise on the roll grants additional bonuses to the spell stated in its description.
    • Failure: The spell does not activate.
    Backlash- There is no backlash effect if a unicorn rolls a ‘1’ on their Spellcraft die.
    Maintaining Powers- Unicorns can maintain spells as long as desired up to the limit of their duration, but each spell maintained inflicts a –1 penalty to cast any new spells. You may choose to cancel any number of maintained spells as a free action.
    Interrupting Powers- If a unicorn with an activated spell is Shaken or suffers a wound, daunt, or fatigue level, they must make a Smarts roll to maintain all their spells. If the roll is failed, all spells are instantly dropped. Maintained spells shut down automatically if the caster sleeps or is rendered unconscious.
    Spell Preparation- A unicorn may prepare a spell by concentrating for a round (no movement or other actions besides free actions and avoid interruption, as described above). If successful, they ignore 2 points of penalties on all spells cast with their next action. If they do not enact any spells on their next action, the preparation is lost.
    Cantrips- Cantrips do not normally require a Spellcraft roll to cast successfully (some can have Cast Options if you choose to roll as part of using the cantrip). However, any cantrips that you maintain inflict penalties as if they were maintained spells.


    GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

    Calling shot (to the head) is a -4 penalty that adds +4 damage to the roll. As an added bonus, norgrug doesn't wear a helm ,so you get to ignore his armor if you make a headshot. Norgrug's toughness is very high, and the extra damage and lowered toughness is probably worth it. Since Element rolls a D12 for spell craft, I figured that it was worth the penalty.

    Norgrug's toughness is 11 with his armor, and it is 8 without it.

    So Without called shots Element is rolling this:
    Spellcraft: 1d12-1 & 1d6-1(DC4) Damage: 2d6 (DC11)

    With called shot to the head.
    Spellcraft: 1d12-5 & 1d6-5 (DC4) Damage: 2d6+4 (DC8)

    Calling shot (to a limb) is a -2 penalty. This can effect the armor too (norgrug has chain for arms and legs, lowering his toughness to 10 if aiming there.) As an added bonus, if aiming at an arm, you can disarm them by doing this. The target has to make a strength check versus the damage.

    If the target drops the weapon, he is considered an "unarmed defender" and everyone that attacks him gains a +2 Bonus. Nothing stops him from picking it up next round, but that does give him a -2 multi action penalty if he attacks that round. In addition, if one of you can disarm him and get the weapon away from him, that is a huge decrease to his potential damage.


    GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

    Also just a reminder, Although you all want to give Norgrug some hurt, Clash of Wills attacks totally ignore toughness...


    Female Pegasus Pony: Wounds 0 | Dts 0 | Ftg 0 | Cha +2 | Pce 6 (+d6) | Prry 5 | Tough 5 | Bs 4

    I thought about directing my Taunt against Norgrug, but I wasn't sure I really had a shot at it. Besides which, I wanted the Taunt to be more than a bunch of unwritten threats and general ranting. Hence the kind of disturbing semi-cannibalism bluff. >_>
    I'll consider going after Norgrug next turn, if I don't get taken down first. :P


    Female Pegasus Pony: Wounds 0 | Dts 0 | Ftg 0 | Cha +2 | Pce 6 (+d6) | Prry 5 | Tough 5 | Bs 4

    So, I'm taking two actions at once in this round. I'm pretty sure I'm doing it correctly, but if I ain't, I'll make a quick modification.


    GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

    I'm going to be out of town monday though sunday this week. I'm not going to have acess to my notes or the game book, and I don't know what internet access I will have. Feel free to continue with your characters next actions with the defeated Norgrug and I will pick it back up next week.

    ALSO, everyone gain an advance! Your Bennies refresh and I'm granting you all an additional one on top of that, due to beating the boss Encounter. So everyone should have 4 bennies.

    Is everyone enjoying the games tone, or is it to fighty?

    Also, when the characters do return to Trottingham, do we want to recruit a new 6th member since Higgs left us? I might reopen recruitment when I get back.


    Kind Of Hard To Tell? I Mean He's A Kobold And Everything, Not That I'm Racist... Kobold (smurf template; brony template) Witch 7/Fighter 4

    Huzzah, another Advance!
    Can't load the PDF right now (or the Quick Start thing, or any PDF, it's really annoying), but I'll go over it later.

    I'm enjoying the tone, but I'd like a mix. Some roleplaying adventures, some more combat-ish ones. Maybe some adventures set around various characters--especially since Higgs just died. Maybe we could do something about that, if you don't already have a plan for how to proceed.

    I'm pretty neutral about a sixth character. Could make things fun, could also slow things down. There's a lot to be said for a smallish group, after all.

    Oh, by the way, guys, I managed to get a story featured on EQD a little while back. :D


    F Unicorn ( Ws 3 | Ds 2 | Fa 0 | Cha +2(+2) | Spd 6 (+d6) | Pry 4(4) | Tgh 3(3) | Bs 3) redraw cards of 5 or less

    @Kobald grats on the story!

    I am also neutral on sixth character.

    I also have no more computer and can't open PDFs on my phone.
    I kind of like the feel so far, but yes, roleplaying encounters are definetly desired along with the combat ones.


    Female Pegasus Pony: Wounds 0 | Dts 0 | Ftg 0 | Cha +2 | Pce 6 (+d6) | Prry 5 | Tough 5 | Bs 4

    Increased my Fighting to d6 on the level-up. Parry is now 5. :)


    Stallion Unicorn ( Ws 0 | Ds 0 | Fa 0 | Cha 0 | Spd 6 (+d6) | Pry 2 | Tgh 4 | Bs 3)

    Hey guys. I'm stepping out. This campaign isn't exactly what I signed up for. I made Element to be a cartoony character in a light hearted story. This is darker than I had anticipated. Typically I don't have an issue with dark plots but this is suppose to be based off a kids cartoon and I kinda wanted to play that way. Cartoon violence at worst. Instead we have a character die in battle and a child who cruelly had an appendage torn from her head. I just don't know how to play my character anymore.

    Element will return to his sheltered life under Clover and live out his remaining days studying the mysteries of the cosmos. Have fun all. Stay strong and Canter on.


    Kind Of Hard To Tell? I Mean He's A Kobold And Everything, Not That I'm Racist... Kobold (smurf template; brony template) Witch 7/Fighter 4

    Sorry to hear that, Shanosuke. G'luck to you in your endeavours!


    GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

    Sorry to have you go Element.

    I never intended to have Lark die, it was the player's wish and I allowed it. I regret that now.

    With 2 players having left, and 1 player gone MIA, how do we want to proceed? Should we recruit some more players? Continue with a smaller group? Call it quits?

    Let me know what you all think.


    Female Pegasus Pony: Wounds 0 | Dts 0 | Ftg 0 | Cha +2 | Pce 6 (+d6) | Prry 5 | Tough 5 | Bs 4

    I can't continue. I'm apparently dead. ;D

    I'm cool with continuing, and neutral on new players (though I tend to lean in favor).


    GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

    Sorry meant Higgledy...


    F Unicorn ( Ws 3 | Ds 2 | Fa 0 | Cha +2(+2) | Spd 6 (+d6) | Pry 4(4) | Tgh 3(3) | Bs 3) redraw cards of 5 or less

    I am up for reopening recruitment, we can continue and add players as they sign up.


    GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

    OK, I'm going to open up recruitment for 2-3 players. I'm giving Shep a week plus the time to find a third player to post if he wishes to continue.


    GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

    I got a PM from Doc, he is bowing out too. What do you guys think. Should we try with just us or call it quits?


    Kind Of Hard To Tell? I Mean He's A Kobold And Everything, Not That I'm Racist... Kobold (smurf template; brony template) Witch 7/Fighter 4

    Honestly, I'm not really feeling my character. She doesn't feel very original, and I don't think I enjoy chatterboxes.

    I don't know if we should call it quits. I enjoy the adventure. But roleplaying Lark just isn't fun for me. And I do think the tone has suffered of late.

    I dunno. :/


    GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

    I'm going to call this GAME OVER. Thanks for participating guys. It was fun while it lasted. If I ever try to start a mlp based game again i will send you guys a PM.


    Kind Of Hard To Tell? I Mean He's A Kobold And Everything, Not That I'm Racist... Kobold (smurf template; brony template) Witch 7/Fighter 4

    Cheers, Jlord. I had fun, so I'll totally be game if there's a second attempt. Something modern-day might actually be fun. Perhaps set nearby the Changeling lands (though I haven't seen the comic yet, so no spoilers! :P).

    But yeah. Later! /)


    Stallion Unicorn ( Ws 0 | Ds 0 | Fa 0 | Cha 0 | Spd 6 (+d6) | Pry 2 | Tgh 4 | Bs 3)

    Let me know too. I'd be willing to give it another try as well.

    There's a comic? Where?

    And I am always up for more.


    Kind Of Hard To Tell? I Mean He's A Kobold And Everything, Not That I'm Racist... Kobold (smurf template; brony template) Witch 7/Fighter 4

    Here's the first issue.


    GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

    I've been meaning to order that actually.

    I'm also planing to start a tumblr pony site soon, if that is interesting to either of you.


    Kind Of Hard To Tell? I Mean He's A Kobold And Everything, Not That I'm Racist... Kobold (smurf template; brony template) Witch 7/Fighter 4

    Sure! I'll check it out when it goes up. I'm kind of half-planning an ask blog, actually, about a Pathfinder-style Equestrian goblin. Just gotta be less busy elsewhere first. :P

    M Human Intellectual Fighter 2, Scientist 1

    Don't know what tumblr is but this will certainly lead me to find out!


    Stallion Unicorn ( Ws 0 | Ds 0 | Fa 0 | Cha 0 | Spd 6 (+d6) | Pry 2 | Tgh 4 | Bs 3)

    I hope you guys are ready for tomorrow's episode of Ponies! The Great and Powerful Trixie make her grad return to challenge Twilight to a duel! It is going to be so awesome!


    Kind Of Hard To Tell? I Mean He's A Kobold And Everything, Not That I'm Racist... Kobold (smurf template; brony template) Witch 7/Fighter 4

    Indeed. I'm not gonna spoil the clips, but there are continuity nods and it looks like it may be pretty great.

    Lantern Lodge

    M Human Intellectual Fighter 2, Scientist 1

    I can't wait! But I have to wait for it to hit online though. I don't have TV.


    GM Bennies ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰

    Welp, That just became my new favorite episode!

    If your interested in checking out some tumblr pony sites, here are a few of my favorites, and there are literally TONS of them.

    Ask Jappleack Apple Jack from the famous 'Pony.Mov' series.
    HotBlooded Pinkie Pinkie pie meets Dragonball Z and Giant Robo
    Lovestruck Derpy Derpy is adorable.
    Ax Brutaloo Scootaloo is Brutal.
    Ask The Cutie Mark Crusaders CMC Hijinks
    Just Ask Flutterguy Male Flutershy meets Berserk and naruto. Similar to Hot Blooded Pinkie.
    Pirate Dash Pirate dash is always getting into trouble.

    Tumbr posts with newest posts first, so you will have to go to the bottom and click to the previous links to get to the first posts.

    Ask Bad Applebloom Here is where mine will be if I ever get around to posting... ;P


    Kind Of Hard To Tell? I Mean He's A Kobold And Everything, Not That I'm Racist... Kobold (smurf template; brony template) Witch 7/Fighter 4

    I have a lot of Tumblr ask blogs I'm following, too, and we don't share any. ;D
    Well, I follow Pinkie Pie Solutions, and that's associated with Hot-Blooded Pinkie, sooo...close?

    And I agree, the new episode is definitely a competitor in my mind.

    Yeah, that trailer was amazing. Magic Duel's teaser reminded me a lot of it.

    That was so awesome. /)^3^(\

    But... This one is better. ;P Probably because I'm a Final Fantasy nut!

    Seriously though the animation in the DOTA 2 one was stellar.

    I'll keep this open for Pony discussion stuff as long as you guys want me to.


    Kind Of Hard To Tell? I Mean He's A Kobold And Everything, Not That I'm Racist... Kobold (smurf template; brony template) Witch 7/Fighter 4

    Also, the new episode introduced a new spell: Summon Parasprite!

    Not looking forward to balancing that if I ever get back to Ponyfinder.

    Lantern Lodge

    M Human Intellectual Fighter 2, Scientist 1

    You'll have to tell me about this Ponyfinder and of course if you are making it then you should know I am making a game, Roads and Ruins, that is a cross between savage worlds and d20. And I am including certain races very pony like and want to play it with ponies (can't do so officially though because I do plan on publishing at some point, but having the rules will be needed for Kindaur, like ponies except cats. Made them long before I ever heard of ponies though which is funny.)

    I would be interested in seeing what you think of it.


    Kind Of Hard To Tell? I Mean He's A Kobold And Everything, Not That I'm Racist... Kobold (smurf template; brony template) Witch 7/Fighter 4

    Ponyfinder is still under construction, but it's basically what you'd assume it to be. Spells are based more on a feat system right now, but I plan on making them a bit harder to max out (there'll be a Magician class, and non-Magicians can only take cantrips or a select few 1st-level spells). A lot of the monsters are statted up, but I ain't worked on it in a good few months.
