Female Human (Shoanti) Bard (Arcane Duelist) 1 - hp 8/8

So I'm off to WorldCon and expect to be incommunicado until Tuesday. GM, please feel free to play Kishta as appropriate.

Combat routine should be Arcane Strike + attack every turn, maneuvering for flanking where appropriate. Use Performance as needed, but I want to save 3 rounds for Gaedren.

Her priority is keeping the kids safe and will direct them to a safe area (church of Milani unless the party has a better idea).


Okay, apparently I'm an idiot and don't know how the things I use work. IF you can't edit the map, PM me and I'll see what's up.

I will post again after the scouting has been resolved. I can live without scouting. It seems like something our party isn't very good at.


Yep, but on the bright side you know what someone could take next level.

Speaking of which. We're using the fast track. I'll be upping some of the encounters to keep you guys on course.


Male Human Cavalier Honor Guard/Strategist

Sorry is there something we need to post?


No, this weekend has been pretty screwy for me. I'll have something up in a bit.


F Human (Varisian) CG Witch L2 | AC12 (16) T12 FF10 (14) | HP12/12 | F+1 R+4 W+4(+6) | Init+2 | Perc+3

Just a heads up, I am able to move my token on my computer at home, but not at work, so a few of my moves may be described before I can actually make them on the map.


Quite alright. I can move your token around if need be.


Male Catfolk Magus 2

I'm glad there is no version of the ASPCA in Golarion


Saaaaaaaay, I wonder how long it'd take me to work in PETA. >:)

I'll roll reflex when I do the round recap.

Also, since Theanna hasn't been on in a while, We'll be getting a replacement player since she was the only divine caster in the party, well until level 4.

Cheers


Male Human Cavalier Honor Guard/Strategist

Sorry for the slow posts. My wife just had a baby. A beautiful baby girl. May be slow posting for awhile.


Congrats on the baby girl!

No worries, I'll DMPC Waydon if necessary.


Female Human (Shoanti) Bard (Arcane Duelist) 1 - hp 8/8

Congratulations Waydon!


Female Half Orc Paladin [Redeemer] of Sarenrae 1

Congrats and blessings of the Damnflower upon you and yours :)


Male Catfolk Magus 2

Congrats Waydon.


Male Dwarf Crusader / 1

Greetings everyone; I'm hoping to join in here with you sometime for some good 'ol Lamm bashin'.

- the new guy

And hope in vain you did not. You've got a spoiler with your name on it in the gameplay thread.


Male Half-orc Magus 2

Welcome aboard!


Male Human Cavalier Honor Guard/Strategist

Welcome dude


Female Half Orc Paladin [Redeemer] of Sarenrae 1

Welcome :)


Just a heads up, I'm going to be out of town for a wedding this weekend. I should be back Monday.

This has been on the calendar for a while I just kept forgetting about it.


Female Half Orc Paladin [Redeemer] of Sarenrae 1

No worries - am stowed under with work and the pace of this game had me worried about being left behind... Weekend "off" will give me some time to clear the decks and get a better handle on Mercy's place in this saga :)


Male Half-orc Magus 2

Lol. Reseri? I saw that and remembered having heard it before. I didn't realize you had been Reseri until I went back to look at it all.


:D

I hope you can forgive a GM a little indulgence. Don't worry she won't be sticking around, so no GMPCs


Male Half-orc Magus 2

Ah don't worry about it. It's all just for fun. Besides, I thought that she and Veklen would have been a great part of a team.


Well, just because I say she won't be sticking around, doesn't mean that you won't have other ideas.


Male Half-orc Magus 2

Nice, two 19's in a row.


Male Human Cavalier Honor Guard/Strategist

Good call on the Theanna comment.


Well, I figured that having a DMPC watch the kids would be better than having a PC watch them. This way everyone can be in the fight. (Trust me, You want everyone you can get in this fight.)


Male Probably human Computer Scientist 1/ Character Synthesizer 20/ Crazy 99

Apologies for the lackluster writing, I seem to have run out of juice at the moment. (Not burned out, just creatively dry.)


Male Human Cavalier Honor Guard/Strategist

The writing has been good. I'm really enjoying the game.


Female Half Orc Paladin [Redeemer] of Sarenrae 1

Yup agree with Waydon - writing and atmosphere have been excellent - given you've a huge party to work with!


Female Human (Shoanti) Bard (Arcane Duelist) 1 - hp 8/8

I agree, I think you're doing a great job -- I wouldn't call it lackluster at all. Especially with this many players, just keeping the action sequences clear is really tough, and you're doing it well.


Okay, since that's done, I can talk about it and get some feed back. Originally there was a shark by the docks, and there was a crocodile in the last encounter. I switched it up and put in a CR 3 NPC to help kep the challenge up.

Unfortunately, I didn't take into consideration how much tougher this would have made the fight.

Truffles:
Truffles CR 3
XP 800
Half-Orc Fighter 4
NE Medium Humanoid (orc)
Init +1; Senses Darkvision; Perception +0
--------------------
Defense
--------------------
AC 12, touch 12, flat-footed 10 (+1 Dex, +1 dodge)

Defensive Abilities Bravery +1

Skills Acrobatics +3, Intimidate +10, Profession (gladiator) +5

Combat Gear Masterwork Agile breastplate, Masterwork Falchion;
--------------------
Special Abilities
--------------------
Bravery +1 (Ex) +1 Will save vs. Fear
Cleave If you hit a foe, attack an adjacent target at the same attack bonus but take -2 AC.
Darkvision (60 feet) You can see in the dark (black and white vision only).
Orc Ferocity (1/day) 1/day, when brought below 0 HP but not killed, you can fight on for 1 more round as if disabled. The next round, unless brought to at least 0 HP, you immediately fall unconscious and begin dying.
Power Attack -2/+4 You can subtract from your attack roll to add to your damage.

So I nerfed him a bit to try and keep this from being a TPK. No armor, and no power attack or cleave. The bad tactics were to keep this from being a meat grinder.

That said, everyone have fun?


Male Dwarf Crusader / 1

Had a great time here, even missing the initial fight.


Male Half-orc Magus 2

I can't remember if we covered this earlier, but did you want rolled health or average after 1st? Here's my roll just in case.Health: 1d8 + 1 + 10 ⇒ (5) + 1 + 10 = 16

Yeah, I had a great time. I've really been enjoying the narrative and the action.

Note:As far as the bad tactics comment, that wasn't a comment from me. Veklen just has high expectations of people. Same reason he just assumed that everyone saw what he did in the barge.


F Human (Varisian) CG Witch L2 | AC12 (16) T12 FF10 (14) | HP12/12 | F+1 R+4 W+4(+6) | Init+2 | Perc+3

Having fun so far :)

Changes for level up:

2nd level Witch

+5 HP (assumed average + 1 con)
+7 Skills (2 class + 3 Int + 1 human + 1 favored class)

Spells: Ill Omen (portents patron), command, comprehend languages

Hex: Healing


Go with average (half + 1) This won't take effect until you get some sleep, but that shouldn't be a problem.

Now, anyone going to search the room?


Male Catfolk Magus 2

Search Lamm until the only thing on him is his shirt and pants.

Level 2:
+5 HP
+5 skills (2 class + 2 Int + 1 Favored Class)

Spells learned:
Shocking Grasp
Corrosive Touch


Male Half-orc Magus 2

Level 2:
+6 HP (5 average, 1 con)
+6 skills (2 class, 3 int, 1 favored class)
Spells Learned:
Ray of Enfeeblement
Magic Missile
Ability: Spellstrike


Male Human Cavalier Honor Guard/Strategist

Hey it could be useful for us to think about team roles as we level up. My character is a defender/tank type with a little bit of people skills. I'm planning on building primarily in the direction of tank/defender because we have others that will be better as team communicators like our bard.
As I see it we don't have any real sneaky people, if you have a dexterity you might consider a level of rogue.
In the case of our Magi it might be good for you two to differentiate yourselves from one another. I'm not up on that class so I don't what directions are possible.
Anyways a little team planning can go a long way.


I'll try and get things rolling again tonight, no guarantees due to an assignment that I need to get done.


Female Half Orc Paladin [Redeemer] of Sarenrae 1

LEVEL 2

+6 HP (5 average, +1 Con)
+4 SKILLS (2 class, +1 Int, +1 Favoured Class)
Abilities: Divine Grace & Lay On Hands


Male Human Cavalier Honor Guard/Strategist

I updated my character as well.


Female Human (Shoanti) Bard (Arcane Duelist) 1 - hp 8/8

OK, I updated Kishta to Lvl 2:

+6 HP (5 average, +1 FC)
+7 skills (6 class, +1 Int)
Add'l Spells Known: Lullaby & Chord of Shards
Bonus Feat: Combat Casting

Yeah, we definitely have an interesting party makeup, with 2 Magi & an Arcane Duelist (the Bard version of a Magus). I'm building Kishta to be a melee skirmisher and buffer with face skills. She should be a passable rogue substitute in another level or two, though her Disable Device will never be very good.

That should be +7 (10/2=5+1=6 +1 CON) HP is average rounded up basically (half of MAX on a roll + 1).

d6 => 21/6 => 3.5 => 4
d8 => 36/8 => 4.5 => 5
d10=> 55/10=> 5.5 => 6
d12=> 78/12=> 6.5 => 7

Hope that clears everything up.


M Goblin Rogue 3 Favored SP HP 28/28 AC 17/12/15 F4R9W2 Per+7 Init+4

Just wondering if Manny can appear briefly to shove his jester's cap in Lamm's mouth. :)


Female Half Orc Paladin [Redeemer] of Sarenrae 1

Okay this could get interesting...


Yup.


Male Human Cavalier Honor Guard/Strategist

This situation is utterly ridiculous. It's D&D. We kill bad guys. If we don't kill Lamm I suppose we'll rounding up all the bad guys in the future? We killed the guys upstairs and we barely knew them. We just assumed they were bad. We didn't even know their crimes. And the killing in cold blood argument is ridiculous in a world of magical healing. We could have healed all the guys we killed and tied them up too. Lamm is only alive because we brought him back to life.
We are aggrieved characters but we're going to show mercy to the Lamm, the architect of our woes, whereas we're fine with killing everyone else because they're nameless?
Is this playing in-character?
