DM Maslen's Second Darkness PF Conversion (Inactive)

Game Master Pathfinder Maslen

The third largest city in Varisia, Riddleport is also the most notorious. It is here that the machinations of an ancient race, once again boil up out of the Darklands and into the light. The sinister plots of the subterranean underwriters manifest!

Male Human Ranger 1

This is why I list all bonus in my ooc description
Eg

2 hand PA, Inspired, Blessed, FE Attack1d20 + 6 - 1 + 1 + 1 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 6 - 1 + 1 + 1 + 2 = 10


Male Half-Elf Cleric 1 / Fighter (Cad) 1

That makes a lot of sense, STR Ranger. I will be following suit from here on out.


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

Not everyone is dead. Apollo is still fighting isn't he?


Male Human DM/32

Nah, as stated in my post. One adversary still in sight. Apollo's target.


AC 19/15/15; HP 5/16; Current Effects: None

I think that was his CMB roll. You don't have to hit first to make a trip attack with a weapon.


Male Human DM/32

Yeah, I believe you do Tippy, especially if it's a reach attack.


AC 19/15/15; HP 5/16; Current Effects: None

You're probably thinking of special properties, like the wolf's trip ability, where when they hit with an attack, they get to make a free trip check. Weapons with the trip ability don't need a hit first, they just get to apply extra bonuses like magical enhancement and weapon focus to the trip roll.


M Human Commoner/1, Expert/1

Yeah, I'm with Tippy on this. The trip ability gives a +2 to the cmb roll and allows you to use the weapons reach and enhancement bonus on your trip attacks. Haven't seen any other interpretation of that, though honestly I've never thought of it your way, Waife.


Male Half-Elf Cleric 1 / Fighter (Cad) 1

My understanding is as Tippy's: the trip replaces the melee attack, so the roll is against the enemy's CMD, and success will result in that enemy falling prone (and not in any damage).

Trip rules from d20pfsrd.com

On combat maneuver success: If your attack roll equals or exceeds the CMD of the target, your maneuver is a success and has the listed effect.

The word "attack roll" leads me to think that you make a single roll, as your attack, and that determines the result. Were it two separate rolls, I believe it would specify "CMB roll," and have additional language about the need to hit the target first.

I can find nothing in the entries about reach weapons or whips that amends the above, but I may have missed something.

As for Ethaniel's placement, he should indeed be in V16, right below Tam. It was late, and my weary eyes drifted as I was determining the square on the grid. The whip has a 15-foot reach, so the trip should still be valid.


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

Yep. Trip generally REPLACES the attack.

Exceptions to this are animals like Apollo and Wolves where their attack is a bite + trip.
Animals like big cats can attack for damage+ grapple


Male Human DM/32

Okay, I have found what I was after.

Clarification

When you attempt to perform a combat maneuver, make an attack roll and add your CMB in place of your normal attack bonus. Add any bonuses you currently have on attack rolls due to spells, feats, and other effects. These bonuses must be applicable to the weapon or attack used to perform the maneuver. The DC of this maneuver is your target's Combat Maneuver Defense. Combat maneuvers are attack rolls, so you must roll for concealment and take any other penalties that would normally apply to an attack roll.


Male Human DM/32

Starting to get the s#+~s with this dice roller. No one is missing!!


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

We are awesome


M Human Commoner/1, Expert/1

Speak for yourselves! I think I managed one attack and we're in round... eight? Haven't cast a spell either. and "oh it'll be a short one, no need to burst into song just yet"

"No? Oh. Well all my party members ran out of range. Oh. Okay. :("


Male Human DM/32

Be sure to keep speaking to acceptable levels per round. Just a friendly reminder.


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

Sorry bout that


Male Human DM/32

Might have to spend a level in the medium paced XP reward at this rate.

What are we in currently? Because not to beat around the bush... holy balls are we slow.


Male Human DM/32

Fast


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

That cause our post rates have dropped. We'd be further otherwise


Male Human DM/32

Click on DM Waife's profile and it has the XP there.

I'm not so sure. It's always been this way with combat for us. I think the quiet spell will pass soon enough.

Also hey! Our first combat in ages is pushing towards 3rd level! Excellent!


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

Yay! I look forward to Favored Terrain. Makes rangers totally bad ass in their environment. I am taking Urban.

I thought for sure you'd take jungle first, though plane (water) might come in handy, too.

Wha?

Sorry, forgot my tags.

Oops.


Male Half-Elf Cleric 1 / Fighter (Cad) 1

Ha! That's awesome.


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

Trying to turn this route into our own ambush. If we can get inside, their numbers will matter far less. A flat out run is not gonna work. Both tippy and Marcus can only manage 20ft speed so we will be caught eventually. Get this inside and we can either hide or mow down mooks one at a time.


Male Human DM/32

I am unsure where Ascaria is of late. A few days now since she has posted so I will continue to keep her with Marcus.


Female Human Witch 2 (AC 12/12/10, HP 16/16, Conditions: Nil)

Sorry for the silence, I'm still with you. :-)


Male Human DM/32

Might disrupt the realism but I am changing the map slightly. I have decided to import and use the actual Riddleport Map given in the book. I originally decided against it due to the pixelation but have decided to use it anyway. That way i don't need to redraw the entire map. Thank you for your understanding.


AC 19/15/15; HP 5/16; Current Effects: None

Ha! And I was about to post my amazement here at the incredible kick ass map you made with MapTools, not realizing it was the professionally published one. Never admit to these things!

That being said, the other map you made was also kick ass. Thought you should know.


Male Human DM/32

Cheers Tipster. Especially since I did this one with a nice fat headache. As you can tell though, I have had to overlay new buildings to bring back the texture quality of the buildings and ships. Still time consuming but I am happy with how it's turned out.


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

awesome dude.


Male Human DM/32

Is this too drawn out? Don't want to bore anyone too much.


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

Well, I thought we were drawing it out by, Yknow trying to not die.


male, Elf Fighter 1 / Rogue {Knife Master} 1 {AC 17'18'/f 14'15'/t 13, HP 17/ 17}

I just figured the foes... for whatever reason they are seeking us are very persistent for some campaign reason but I agree with Marcus... Tam is not about to let himself be put at the mercy of cut-throats and vermin!

As far as Tam knows... the criminals here have attacked us wholly without provocation... so he is going to make them pay ad work for it he will NOT surrender!


M Human Commoner/1, Expert/1

I'm 30 posts behind in the gameplay thread! I'll catch up ASAP, but I finally had some work come my way and I've been flat out this weekend.

Augh, and a quick look tells me my response to that knowledge roll didnt actually get posted. I hope I'm not holding things up!

As for the pace, I'm so so. This game is always fun to check up on, no matter what we're doing. But on the other hand... I want to see some of those exotic looking guys that so-frequent the cover art. What do they call them again? Drogs? Trow? :P


M Human Commoner/1, Expert/1

Would anyone object to trying to resolve this with diplomacy? A parley? We're not even entirely sure why they're on our scent. Surely Larur isn't so important that a small private army is after him. There has to be at least two dozen, right?

Andoran

Male Human {Black American} Monk 1 / Paladin 2 / Bard 1

I'm always open to diplomatic resolution... but here in this city... that usually would need to be from a position of strength ... they don't really have a need to 'parley' right now.


AC 19/15/15; HP 5/16; Current Effects: None

Ummm, this is all perfectly exciting. I'm thinking, as Calistrians, if we get out of this, some revenge needs to be planned, ASAP. I think it would be great fun to plan out and execute an urban gang war, Pathfinder style.


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

Well Marcus is not for getting us killed. I say we flee to Iscarel's safe house (since his priority is getting as many out as possible) and fight if cornered.


M Human Commoner/1, Expert/1

Tippy's speaking my language.


I have no objections to diplomacy, or to fleeing and plotting!


Female Human Witch 2 (AC 12/12/10, HP 16/16, Conditions: Nil)

From Ascaria's perspective, she won't be excited about taking revenge on a horde of pauper's who are bullied into attacking us. It would take something really serious to make her go along with such a plan.

From a player's point of view, I'm ok with anything. I would however also like to see a little meat on the story...


1 person marked this as a favorite.
AC 19/15/15; HP 5/16; Current Effects: None

Well, if things go badly, I have this idea for a dagger-using halfling rogue I could try...


M Human Commoner/1, Expert/1

Ascaria and Ethaniel, if you want to focus your spells on the leader I can use Cause Fear on him? On a successful save he's shaken (-2 to saves) for a round, so we could easily bring him to his knees with our combined casting might!

Andoran

Male Human {Black American} Monk 1 / Paladin 2 / Bard 1

Actually, Ethaniel running up to channel positive energy to heal both Tam and Marcus might be appropriate... we're both looking a little raged here...

He could still... next round cast spells from relative ranged safety.


Male Human DM/32

HP check? I don't see anything on your character profile Tam.


male, Elf Fighter 1 / Rogue {Knife Master} 1 {AC 17'18'/f 14'15'/t 13, HP 17/ 17}

I had not changed the hp total on my sheet as its in my name line above............................ ^ {Here}

but I have now also adjusted my sheet as well...
