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!

No problem!


Male Human DM/32

Will npc Ascaria's action after work.


Male Human DM/32

Lost my MOFO post! FARK!

Ascaria bullrushes Ethaniel and yells as she runs toward him.

"Heal them NOW! Look at them, they can't wait. Heal them or we die."

Her passionate cry on her forceful approach allows Ethaniel to relax enough to not resist her intent and her push is enough to get Ethaniel in range of the others.

Ethaniel, you are force 5ft toward Marcus and Tam. You are now in range. Let your channel rip. Ascaria is now at the end of the initiative order.


Male Human DM/32

Round 3 Commences

Iscarel, you round the corner and are startled so as there is a young gang member, peering around the corner. You can see sheer horror on his face as he watches the fight. However, he obviously startled you as you rounded the corner and sent your arrow awry. However, you are both now aware of each other and it's his turn to act.

He fearfully pulls a dart from his padded ragged jerkin slits and throws it.

Ranged Dart (over 50ft ie. -4 to attack)
1d20 + 3 - 4 ⇒ (4) + 3 - 4 = 3

This boy is obviously not well trained in his weaponry. His poor choice of weapon and his distance from you almost assured a miss. Having dug around to retrieve the dart as a novice would, he now stands scared awaiting your retribution.


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

Channel. Yay! We live. Tam go defensive if you want. A +2 for flanking is plenty!


Male Human DM/32

Ascaria:
As you commanded Blackbeard to scout for the flank at the rear, you soon get a sense through your link that things are bad and you are filled with fear of being overrun and hopelessness.


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

Ha!

Ethaniel's hand closes around the sharp edges of Calistria's three-pronged holy symbol, and he murmurs a prayer. Energy washes over him and flows out.

Channel Energy - 1d6 ⇒ 1

Damn it! Really?


Male Human DM/32

The boss Badeye reveals himself. He steps out into the open from around the corner but allows his allies to make a front line for him to stand behind. Tippy is about to get flanked as more gang members are revealed as they move from around the corner and tactically position themselves.

Badeye laughs in his very deep manner as he watches the melee.

"Get in there Rasper. Earn your keep."

Pauper's Hand Shortsword vs Marcus AC16

Attack 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21 Damage 1d6 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 2 = 7

Marcus' Init View Rnd3

This is not looking good. Andrezi now appears motionless on the ground as the grapplers drop him in a puff of dust.

Badeye laughs in your faces but is out of reach as his minions effectively engage you. Ascaria and Ethaniel are desperately supporting you but favor is hard earned at this time.


Male Human DM/32

Perception Tippy and Marcus and Apollo

Tam:
As you near death, you feel the blackness building like a dam wall awaiting its release.


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

heading to shift. Post in an hour.


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

Tam is barely on his feet his blood splattering the ground the wash of positive energy... just not enough.

He mutters deliriousness from blood loss obvious, "Liara... soon~..."


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

Seeing Tam struggling and needing to thin the number's of their enemies Marcus attempts to fight on 2 fronts. He 5 ft steps to the left in order to flank with Tippy. Then he stabs at the flanked enemy with his Scimitar
TWF Scimitar Flanking PA FE1d20 + 5 + 2 - 1 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 5 + 2 - 1 + 2 = 20

Male Human DM/32

Marcus, should your OH be +4 when TWF? It is not MW is it? OH Weapon PA damage is halved too.

Two more attacks and two more hits. What an amazing melee combatant this man is. It's almost unbelievable how accurate this ranger strikes and maims humans. Is it evil to be so well practiced in dispatching your own kind? This man sees no argument.


Male Human DM/32

Tippy's Init View Rnd3

Not quite surrounded but soon you very well may be, it really shouldn't be for long though with the punishment Marcus is dealing out to these pricks. Marcus moves to give you an advantage over your original target. With blood quickly pooling at the mans feet, he struggles to remain standing. He is on his last leg.

Yeah, sorry about that. Posting at work in between rounds from my phone and didn'tdouble check. Cheers.

EDIT:After that last hit I took I am at 10HP. Looks like Marcus's awesome killing skills aren't gonna get the job done...:(


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

The dice have turned on us...


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

Tam stabs at the thug in front of him with his rapier and steps back... brave yes, but not foolhardy... he is too wounded to hold the line. But he will make one last stab to provide as much assistance as he can before backing off.

Standard Action: Attack w/Rapier - 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (18) + 4 = 22 Uhm... Critical Threat!
Confirm critical w/Rapier: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (17) + 4 = 21 CRITICAL HIT!

Rapier Damage: 1d6 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4
Rapier Damage-CRITICAL HIT: 1d6 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4
Free Action: 5'ft step to ( DO 46 )

The stab is true and the blade pierces deep...


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

That's it take as many as you can with you!!


Male Human DM/32

Ranged Fire Bomb attack 1d20 + 6 - 2 ⇒ (1) + 6 - 2 = 5
Damage 2d6 + 2 ⇒ (3, 1) + 2 = 6

An explosion of flame bursts forth down the lane. Most of you can't see but can hear the bomb explode.

Tippy:
You see a ball of flame from the bomb and you also see the group who were surrounding Andrezi, move to confront someone else.

Mace 1d20 + 0 ⇒ (15) + 0 = 15 Damage 1d6 + 0 ⇒ (3) + 0 = 3

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

This is my last channel for the day. It should hit Tam, Ascaria, Marcus, and his dog.

Once more, energy spreads from Ethaniel as he prays.

Channel Energy - 1d6 ⇒ 4

A little better.

Ethaniel then moves to DN46.


Male Human DM/32

Iscarel?


Male Human DM/32

Iscarel will move toward the fight and fire an arrow at the target about to flank Tippy.

Shortbow vs AC17 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (10) + 5 = 15 Damage 1d6 ⇒ 2


Male Human DM/32

Ascaria moves northward to avoid the apparent flank that is coming up behind her. Well that's the feeling she is getting from Blackbeard.

She will then cast a spell at Tam's previous target as he doesn't look nearly as hurt as Marcus' first target.

Ear Piercing Scream Fort DC14

Save 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (16) + 3 = 19

Damage 1d6 ⇒ 5 Halved


Male Human DM/32

Unfortunately, Ascaria only gets a partial effect of the spell as the target resists it's full payload.

Initiative Order Rnd4:

23 PP1
17 Badeye Group
15 Marcus
15 Tippy
15 Tam
14 Bomber
13 Grapple Group
12 Other
11 Iscarel
9 Ethaniel
9 Ascaria

Round 4 commences

The ineffective dart throwing youth who previously harassed Iscarel realises his luck, that the elf had ignored his futile attack and feels he should make good with his fortune and run. He does so.


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

Go! DMPC!


Male Human DM/32

The target of Iscarel's arrow changes his intent and charges at the elf.

Charge vs AC16 1d20 + 5 + 2 ⇒ (8) + 5 + 2 = 15 Damage 1d6 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3

Now -2AC

The near death target between Tippy and Marcus steps diagonally out of the flank and back to a flank position on Tippy and makes a single shortsword attack.

Shortsword sneak vs Tippy AC19
1d20 + 5 + 2 ⇒ (16) + 5 + 2 = 23 Damage 1d6 + 2 + 1d6 ⇒ (5) + 2 + (5) = 12

Rasper also uses the flank to his best advantage against the agile small target
S/sword +4 Flanking +2 vs Tippy AC19
1d20 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (11) + 4 + 2 = 17 Damage 1d6 + 2 + 1d6 ⇒ (2) + 2 + (3) = 7

A younger thief caught up in the melee finds himself out of his depth and steps away from the carnage, but Badeye wont stand for cowards and belts the kid with the end of his double axe.

Non lethal strike with Double Orc Axe 1d20 + 8 - 4 ⇒ (14) + 8 - 4 = 18 Non-lethal damage 1d8 + 7 ⇒ (7) + 7 = 14

Lastly, the last hand facing Marcus alone now has an attack.

S/Sword vs Marcus AC18 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (17) + 5 = 22 Damage 1d6 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

Oh crap, Marcus is at 4 HP.


Male Human DM/32

The charge at Iscarel fails and leaves the 'hand' open to attack.

Tippy gets an extremely hard hit due to the flank he has found himself in but luckily the cowardly meek Rasper doesn't capitalize on the halfling's dire position.

The cowardly youth gets totally clobbered by Badeye and is knocked out cold in one powerful hit.

Marcus takes another bite of pain as a short sword plunges into him once more.


Male Human DM/32

Now for your turn boys! Light em up aye! May Desna guide your hands.

Marcus' Init View Rnd4

Tippy and Tam use the same map as Marcus.


Male Human DM/32

One of the flanking gang members yells out to all.

"Gendarmes on a fast stride. Every man for himself."


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

The hand's stab was vicious and Marcus could see how badly surrounded they were.
They were going to die. He delays hoping his dog's attacks will trip or hamper the thief.

Apollo seeing his Master Attacked Moves to DL 47 to get at the Hand.

Apollo bite1d20 + 3 ⇒ (4) + 3 = 7
Damage1d6 + 3 ⇒ (1) + 3 = 4plus trip

Marcus makes a Retaliatory strike against the Hand who just hit.him.
TWF PA, FE1d20 + 5 - 1 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 5 - 1 + 2 = 18
Damage, PA, FE, Trait1d6 + 4 + 2 + 2 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 4 + 2 + 2 + 1 = 10
Apollo misses but the distraction allows the scimitar to hit home.

He then 5ft steps to DL46 to put Tippy within a step of a Flank as Marcus attempts to kill the bandit in DK46.
Offhand Cestus PA, FE1d20 + 4 - 1 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 4 - 1 + 2 = 17
Damage PA, FE, Trait1d4 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1 = 10

Waife is it cool if Marcus delays on all his turns to let Apollo go first when the dog is in 'Guard' mode? The idea is Marcus uses the dog as a bodyguard to harry/trip his opponent before Marcus attacks? This is because Handle Animal states in Guard mode, the dog auto attacks whomever hit Marcus last round. Marcus would know this


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

Marcus was at 10 HP before Ethaniel's channel right? By my math, he should be at 8 HP.


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

Tippy takes a 5-foot step into that nice flanking position Marcus has offered and stabs low.

Attack: 1d20 + 1 + 2 ⇒ (8) + 1 + 2 = 11
Attack: 1d20 + 1 + 2 ⇒ (18) + 1 + 2 = 21; damage: 1d3 + 1 + 1d8 ⇒ (2) + 1 + (1) = 4 Oh for Pete's sake!!!!


Male Human DM/32

Nope Marcus, because the actions all happen in your turn. Therefore any conditions gained are in effect at the end of your turn.


Male Human DM/32

Marcus hits true with his mainhand attack but the enemy remains standing, only just.

However, his offhand finishes the job on the other gang member next to Tippy after his tactical step.


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

In that case, Tippy backs 5 feet away, pulls a potion out of his pouch and downs it. He vanishes from sight for

GM:
3 rounds. He goes to DJ46.

Also, can we have that colossal Apollo that's in the bottom left corner of the map join the fight on our side? It might make Marcus worth having around if he comes with THAT!!


Male Human DM/32

Tippy, you obviously cant move as requested this round though but will do so next round.


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

GM:
Whoops! It seems in my haste, I forgot to mention that it's his CL 3 potion of vanish he drank. That's why he vanishes. Sorry, I wanted to get the post in before you checked in so as not to hold things up. Guess that failed.

OK. I have successfully had that in RL games but it those my GM gave the companion his own initiative. That would slow things down though. It's cool.


Male Human DM/32

It's a pet after all. I think I have been pretty lenient in your use of the pet. I haven't made you need many handles at all.


Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

You've been awesome. I'm leaving him in guard mode, specifically to avoid handle checks. He auto attacks whomever hits me ;)


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

Tam's wounds close from the rush of positive energy and still wounded but renewed.

Over his shoulder to Ethaniel, "My thanks to the Savored Sting!"

Tam steps up the the Thug Marcus just struck but didn't fell Stabbing with his rapier...

Free Action: 5'ft Step ( DN 47 )
Standard Action: Attack with Rapier 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (15) + 4 = 19

Male Half-Elf Wild Stalker 7

Tenacious D voice: That's F√ck!n teamwork!


Male Human DM/32

Tam musters his strength and courage and now that the party seemed to have taken the advantage, he returned to press aswell. His courage is repaid with a finishing strike upon the foe who had injured him so.


Male Human DM/32

Another bomb explodes down the alley way.

1d20 + 6 ⇒ (1) + 6 = 7 Damage 2d6 + 2 ⇒ (5, 4) + 2 = 11
