DM Talomyr's Council of Thieves (Inactive)

Game Master Talomyr

A resistance rises in order to stop injustices in the former Chelish capitol, Westcrown.


251 to 300 of 492 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | next > last >>

Deevor would be great, as would Jeremiziah, Stormchaser, and Tanner from Alex's Serpent's Skull PbP, and Navior from our Kingmaker PbP (although Jeremiziah is currently running CoT; don't know about the other three).

However, I'd be just as happy with the five of us as we are.

Hmmm, not sure if that was really helpful or not... Guess I'm abstaining from the vote, but will be happy whatever the outcome.

Stormchaser aka Kyle runs CoT so will probably not be interested in playing (I have Kingmaker with him today so i'll mention it anyway).

DM Talomyr,

I would like to post a thread soliciting advice on how to improve my little alchemist here, and I wanted to know if you would mind me posting it in the CoT AP section? or do you think the Advice section would be better?

Don't want to run across any spoilers, so let me know what you think.

Thanks,

Wart

Shadow Lodge

Wart,

Post it in whatever section you see fit, though I suspect you may get more responses on the Advice forum.

Please excuse my lack of posting tonight. I found out I am down yet another grandfather, and just need a night with the family.

Thank you for your understanding,

Me.


Male Halfling Alchemist : 4

Just wanted to pop in and let y'all know that I am still here, and that I am dealing with the fallout from the memorial/funeral. Sometimes these things get way too involved...and then the family politics certainly don't help.

I should be able to post tomorrow.

See you then.

Me.

I may have mentioned this to various people on MSN, but I thought i'd make myself clear with some copy-paste-fu.

I am completely swamped with work for university- i'm posting at 6AM after being up all night working on a damn progress report, and I have a paper on security due in a couple of days. I'm stressed, burnt out and exhausted.

Hence my slower post rate- but never fear, for my next deadline is on friday so I imagine i'll be back to normal posting rate on monday, after my melted brain has cooled down once more.

Thanks for your patience, and apologises for the slowdown on my end.

Sorry for the prolonged absence! I'm finally back from an unexpectedly extended visit to the wilds of northern and central Georgia. I hope everyone had great holidays!

Just a few book-keeping questions regarding our spoils from the Bastards' lair:

Did we ever identify the bracers, silver dagger, and third potion that registered as magical?

Did we manage to sell the recovered items that we were unable to return to their original owners?

How much XP do we have now?

Thanks!

Dark Archive

The three remaining items are:

Bracers of Armor + 2
Silver Dagger, Keen +1
Potion of Cure Serious Wounds

As far as experience goes....well, let's just call it "ding".

Welcome to 4th level.


Okay, so I've been having a bit of trouble getting into Addie's head for the past three levels - trying to figure out what motivates her as a character, her role in the party, and so on. I keep trying to figure out how and why a loner witch who has spent her entire life in the Dead Sector of Westcrown would participate in the Westcrown Municipal Defenders (besides having a Harrow reading imply that taking such a course is what she should do). I think the key factor boils down to her Westcrown Firebrand campaign trait - that she's working to bring change to the city of Westcrown.

With that said, I think I need to make a couple of tweaks to Addie's character. When I created Addie, I defaulted to the Agility patron because that was the one that had the cat as the familiar when we started under the APG playtest rules for the witch. Now I think it would be more appropriate for her patron to be some entity that embodies change - sort of like The Traveler from Eberron's Dark Six. Such a patron would more fittingly represent Deception rather than Agility, so if it's okay with Talomyr I'd like to make that change to Addie (which would only involve changing the 1st level patron-specific spell from Jump to Ventriloquism). Similarly, I think it would be more appropriate to change Addie's alignment from neutral good to either chaotic good or chaotic neutral.

As an agent for change, I see Addie also making changes to herself as situations warrant. In that vein, she will multiclass as a Bard at 4th level - maybe this can be explained as a calling from her patron, or perhaps it's a bit of her Varisian heritage coming to the fore. I know it may not be the most optimal choice mechanics-wise for character advancement, but it just seems to fit the character. Any thoughts from you guys are appreciated.

Thanks!


Just as a reminder, the following are the magic items we recovered from the Bastards of Erebus:

+1 Full Plate Armor - claimed by Morghrim
Bracers of Armor +2 - unclaimed
+1 Heavy Mace - to be sold
+1 Keen Alchemical Silver Dagger - unclaimed
Potion of Cure Light Wounds - unclaimed
Potion of Cure Light Wounds - unclaimed
Potion of Cure Moderate Wounds - unclaimed
Potion of Cure Serious Wounds - unclaimed
Potion of Invisibility - unclaimed
Ring of Feather Fall - unclaimed
Wand of Magic Missiles CL 1st - claimed by Addie (any way to determine the number of charges?)

Does anyone want to claim any of the unclaimed items? Does anyone mind if Addie takes the Bracers of Armor +2?

Ofc u get the bracers, crazy not to.

Would like the cure serious please, think i've claimed enough.

Given that the mechanical changes are so minor, and on top of that I don't believe that Addie has ever used the Jump spell. Go ahead and make the changes you need to.


Thanks Tal! Will get to work updating.

-Multiclassing into Bard, so now Witch 3 / Bard 1.

Bleed: A creature that is taking bleed damage takes the listed amount of damage at the beginning of its turn. Bleeding can be stopped by a DC 15 Heal check or through the application of any spell that cures hit point damage (even if the bleed is ability damage). Some bleed effects cause ability damage or even ability drain. Bleed effects do not stack with each other unless they deal different kinds of damage. When two or more bleed effects deal the same kind of damage, take the worse effect. In this case, ability drain is worse than ability damage.

If nobody else wants the ring of feather fall Morghrim will take it gladly.

Note that Morghrim has the protection domain- so if/when we come across cloaks of resistance no claim will be made there.

Looks like Wart and Valeron still need to make their changes for level 4 and we can get moving again...provided of course you all still want to.

Don't worry everythings still fairly slow after the holidays. I'm around and ready for Morghrim to put on his acting shoes!


Male Halfling Alchemist : 4

sorry about the lack of updating, I have no valid excuse.

I will try to get the update up around 1200, but certainly by 1600 tonight.

And I do want to continue, but to be honest, I am really concerned for Wart's survival in this upcoming "bloodsport."

Cringing at the thought of what a society that worships demons could consider bloodsport.


I've been having trouble getting back into the pace following the holidays as well, but I'm definitely up for continuing.

Addie's ready for her acting debut!

Don't worry, you have bloodthirsty, protective "Uncle Morg" looking after you.

Oh- and its DEVIL worshipping... Definitely worth noting the differene in Cheliax :)


Male Halfling Alchemist : 4

*grumble grumble* this is what I get for mouthing off about having something done by a specific time...I do snow removal at work, and guess what? They chose the end of the day to get after it. sorry guys. update is coming soon.

Also, yes, I certainly realize the difference, and to be honest...I think devils are much, MUCH, worse.

No problem....I just was starting to think I was the first DM on these boards that got abandoned by his players. ;)

As soon as everyone is leveled up, we'll start Book 2 (albeit modified).

Why modified? Well as written Council of Thieves goes up to Level 14 at the end....assuming we make it that far, you all will be something north of that.


Male Halfling Alchemist : 4

Wart Level 4 Update:

  • +1d8: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 1 = 6
  • Skills: 4+Int: [7]+1 rank Craft (Alchemy); +1 rank Disable Device; +3 Ranks Perception; +2 rank Perform (Act)
  • +1 B.A.B: [+3 total]
  • Fort Save: +1 [+4 Total Base]
  • Ref. Save: +1 [+4 Total Base]
  • Special: Discovery: Smoke Bomb
  • Extracts: +1 2nd Level Extract Per day: 6 [1st] 4 [2nd]
  • New Formula: Vomit Swarm


  • Male Halfling Alchemist : 4

    Oops!

    All level assoicated benefits also go up (i.e. # of bombs per day, DC's against various things, and so on.).


    So to update, the following are the magic items we recovered from the Bastards of Erebus and who has claimed what:

    +1 Full Plate Armor - Morghrim
    Bracers of Armor +2 - Addie
    +1 Keen Alchemical Silver Dagger - Wart
    Potion of Cure Serious Wounds - Morghrim
    Ring of Feather Fall - Morghrim
    Wand of Magic Missiles CL 1st - Addie
    Potion of Cure Light Wounds - unclaimed
    Potion of Cure Light Wounds - unclaimed
    Potion of Cure Moderate Wounds - unclaimed
    Potion of Invisibility - unclaimed
    +1 Heavy Mace - to be sold

    Tal, is there any way to determine the number of charges remaining on the wand?

    Dark Archive

    1d20 + 25 ⇒ (9) + 25 = 34

    Looks like 34 charges

    Valeron? You still out there?


    Male Halfling Alchemist : 4

    Guess I also get another stat point?

    Well +1 to Int I say!


    Male Human Cleric 5 / Inheritor's Crusader 1

    I'm here! I'm here! I'm leveling hastily... which means right now.

    EDIT - Level 4 complete. Details on changes in spoiler at end of the sheet.

    As far as character growth, I'm a little rusty from the long break (preceeded mostly by a long combat before that), so we'll see how the new year sessions shape the cleric. He's still mechanically allocating points for qualifying for Inheritor's Crusader next level and taking his 1st level in it at 6.


    Male Halfling Alchemist : 4

    May we purchase/craft stuff in the interim? How long are we practicing per day?

    Also, have we done a disbursement from the group coffers recently?

    Certainly. As far as practice goes you are at the Limehouse ~7-8 hours on any given day (let out of rehearsals ~ 1 hour before sundown) so theoretically you would have time to do a bit of crafting.

    Ok- 61 pages and 13,000 words; mostly generated in the last three days and submitted yesterday. Add to that the software my study ran on crashed due to insufficient testing by the computer science monkeys I was assigned.

    I am mentally and physically drained but I think its a good piece of work. I'm proud to announce my triumphant return to PbP- my posting might still be slow for a month or so but should be much better than the last couple of weeks.

    So, thanks for your patience everyone.
