Female Human Sorceress (Fey) 1/ Oracle (Life) 1

Any direction you want to give with Tityanna becoming an Oracle?

I was planning on writing a pretty generic dream sequence featuring a stag leading a few does and fawns headed south. Be much more freaky when she starts casting divine magics, imho. :P

Tityanna: I'm pretty open and flexible, so whatever direction you'd like to go is okay by me. If you'd like to keep it somewhat Erastil 'themed' to start that will easily blend with the rest of the group's beliefs. Depending on how the story grows, we can throw in visions/themes from additional gods as seem fitting. I'll jump in with a least one dream vision, after you've posted your initial opening.

Female Human Sorceress (Fey) 1/ Oracle (Life) 1

Running my game at the moment, will have a post up tonight some time, I hope.

Dunno if I will be too active tomorrow.

Sorry for being so sporadic lately. Work and life have been keeping me overly occupied, to put it mildly. I will try to post something tonight.

Male Human Ranger

What would be the process for Kams to dislodge himself from his observation nest, and move back to the others? He would prefer the option that gives him the best opportunity to avoid alerting the men to his own whereabouts, and without giving away the existence of his compatriots.

You're initial stealth rolls aren't great, but assuming you wait a few minutes, it will be a contest between the bandit's PER and your Stealth.

You could wait longer to see if they move away, but then things will depend on whether the others get worried and decide to follow.

A third option, which doesn't really fit your criteria, would be to try and take them both. Based on what you've heard and observed, there is a bit of separation between the two. Probably no line of sight. But it could be tricky especially if one of them escapes back to the camp.

Male Human Ranger

Kams thought about using the bow, and making a suprise attack, but doubted he could slay both men quickly and quietly before they could raise the alarm. Plus, he am uncertain how far from their camp they really are.

As is, he will, if possible, quietly draw sword and dagger, and stay hunkered down to see if they move off. If not, after a minute or so, he will begin to, as quietly as possible, move back down the trail towards the others. The entire time he will stay as hyper vigilant as he's capable of any possibility the men might spot him. At that, he will move to take them out, if possible, before the spotter notifies his associate of his find.

Things seem to be slowing down a bit. Do we still have everyone? Time for a recruitment drive?

I'm here, maybe we need a roll call.

Female Human Sorceress (Fey) 1/ Oracle (Life) 1

I am here. I was in Washington visiting family and didn't find much time to immerse myself, and was sorta waiting the signal to move forward.

It is difficult being deaf now, but it was thematically appropriate.

Male Human Ranger

Sorry folks, I am in West Virginia. Surviving the power-pocalypse. Power should be restored to my area by Friday. Right now it is up and down. I should be able to post regularly once I have a steady connection.

I've been assuming things were a bit slow because of summer and the holiday. Plus for my part, I had the flu last week, so I wasn't checking in quite as often as I usually do.

Female Human Sorceress (Fey) 1/ Oracle (Life) 1

According to the SRD if I sink a rank into Linguistics next level, Tityanna can read lips. It should make things significantly easier.

For now it's just plunk around and follow after Thad, who doesn't have the propensity to scout :P

Unless there are any objections, I'll plan to bring the two new recruits into the campaign during the next encounter or two.

That's assuming they get backgrounds posted sometime in the next few days.

Male Human Ranger

Yes, sorry. Kams will wait until closer before making his announcement. Google is rejecting my access, or my PC rather is rejecting google cookies as viral infections, so I can't see the map currently.

I've been too slammed at work, being a network tech assisting the storm ravaged get back on "Facespace and Mybook" that I haven't bothered to fix my laptop yet. Nearly 12 hours a day 7 days a week, but hey I guess the money is good, if I'm ever rested enough to enjoy it.

If either DM Tareth or Warren would be so kind, please move Kams to an appropriate space. Kams has been relatively forward, so moving quickly yet cautiously towards the nearest man seems likely.

Female Human Sorceress (Fey) 1/ Oracle (Life) 1

Headed to Norway tomorrow afternoon. Will not be available to post till Monday at the earliest, depending on higher brain function/ability to get out of bed longer than three hours.

male Human Bard (Detective) 2

Hey all, sorry I haven't posted here yet. I forgot that this wasn't a new game, I've been waiting for a PM saying that the thread has been created. . .

Anyway, I'll be the cowboy cop of the group, with my perform skill being oratory. That's right, folks, whenever I'm making you better at doing your job, it'll be because I'm lecturing you on how to do it.

Elf Paladin 2

My life has become rather busy at the moment, I'm traveling for the next week for my son's surgery. I'm not sure if this will leave me with more time for posting or less, but it's why I've been a bit slow to post lately. Thad's been hanging back and keeping watch on the bandit we've already captured, so barring extraordinary circumstances he may not have much left to do in this fight anyway...

Female Human Sorceress (Fey) 1/ Oracle (Life) 1

i'm still here, but I'm guessing it's taking a few rounds to resolve this bandit thing, but I do believe i said that Tityanna was ambling ahead with the little guy to find warren.

Thad, best of luck and Godbless with your son's surgery.

We have brought our new member to the War Council. Welcome Imon!

Kam's, you still with us? Hiding our trail is your specialty.

Elf Paladin 2

Another busy week, helping with the Paralympics...

Things should be fairly stable now and I'll see what I can do to catch up with Thad.

Elf Paladin 2

Sorry about the lack of activity on my part for the past week, kudos to the GM for keeping things moving!

This didn't update. Post coming from me soon.

Elf Paladin 2


I didn't see any updates on the campaign tab :(

There are a lot of good things about this forum, but the way it forgets to notify us of updates sometimes is really frustrating...

Elf Paladin 2


Going to try bumping this one last time...

I know, this is may be the the third Kingmaker to stall on me. And, DM-Tareth, this one has been amazing. The improvisation over some of the original story has been incredible.

I know there are players in my other kingmaker that would love if you bring them over.

Link to stranded game

I already moved my zen archer over to another game as I had that feeling it was in trouble. If you post in the discussion thread of the campaign I linked, you can easily get some players to come over.

We had a shadow mage, a fighter, and I think a bard that were stranded. Anyway, if this is a game lacking players, and the other has players but no DM, maybe you bring them over.

Warren, that sounds like a good idea. Even if Thad, Tityanna, and Imon return we'll likely need some additional players as things move forward.

I'm just getting ready to leave town for a week for work and a little time off. The internet out there is a little less reliable so I may not be able to post often. Because of that, I'll likely wait until I'm back home before inviting new players.

However, if you'd like to point the game out to them please feel free to do so. If they're interested they can post in the discussion thread or PM me.

Elf Paladin 2

Paizo's forum keeps sabotaging my games :(

I never got a 'new post' message about the gameplay post on the 25th, these three posts on the OOC board were the first to tell me there was an update.

Sounds good. I missed the updates too, so the boards do act squirrely sometimes. I PMed some when I checked and found this thread wasn't updating for me.

This is an excellent game, I would hate to see it die the lingering death of the majority of games on the PbP forums.

I'll link the thread for the DM-Kudos refugees.

I'm from the campaign that was halted that Warren pointed out to you. I'm interested in joining this outstanding one, I was lurking a bit till I didn't want to be spoilered but there is so much different, it likely did not matter.

Please, let me know what changes you want, and ask any questions you have.

Male Human Bard 3 (Arcane Duellist); HP: 4/30 AC: 15/11/14; Saves: F +3, R +4, W +1; Init: +1; Per: +4

Hi I'm from the other game. Just saying hi currently. We had some nice player interaction happening in the other gameanf it would great if you take all of us but that might be difficult.

Male Elf Shadowcaster 4

Greetings. Like Stellan and Andrei, I hail from the game Kudos has been running - I'm the shadowcaster. I was wondering, if you do decide to take one or more of us in, whether our characters will have lived through what they lived through in Kudos' game. That is, have they met Oleg, Svetlana, Kesten and his guards, and sojourned through the Stolen Lands together? Will they be returning from such a sojourn in time to meet the current party? Or are they newly-arrived from Restov, alone among strangers in a strange new land?

Also, that is a lot of NPCs. It seems that, should I be accepted, I'll have my work cut out for me getting them all into my gallery. That's okay, I like a project.

Male Human XP: 3150 Fighter 2 HPs 14/24 AC 17/T12/FF15

Well, lets get close to the full set from the DM Kudos' game .. Gorax is the tee-total fighter ... It's been fun in DM Kudos' game and would be great if we could all keep together, but its up to you to decide what you want to take on. Obviously I'd like to continue in a kingmaker campaign as this would be the 3rd that Gorax would have played in if he's chosen.

Male Elf Shadowcaster 4

Another question - of the PCs listed in the Campaign Info tab, plus Imon, how many are still around?

17/17HP; AC17/13/14; Fort +4 Ref +6 Will +0; Init+3; Perception +7

I come from the Kudos' game as well. I'm the vivisectionist alchemist, and one of the original people who brought up the recruitment thread.

All: Just a quick update. I'm on the road this week and staying where there isn't an internet connection. We have to drive into town for any access. I should be back in touch on Sunday. Thanks for all of the interest.

Male Elf Shadowcaster 4

Well, you're welcome, though we really ought to be thanking you for opening your game to drifters and vagabonds like us. So on behalf of whoever you decide to include, thank you, and have fun with whatever it is that's keeping you on the road and away from the Internet.

@ all: I know it's a bit forward to ask a favor now, but I've looked through the PCs' profiles and skimmed the gameplay thread (not reading too closely to avoid learning things before I should) and I'm having trouble visualizing the characters. Would it be possible to get some indication of how you all look? A physical description would be helpful in establishing Anwel's first impressions of the other PCs should Tareth choose me, and the other Kudosites will tell you that I like drawing the PCs as well as NPCs we meet.

Lest you think I'm being a hypocrite, asking you to share and not doing so myself, Anwel's profile has a description of how he looks in it.

Male Human XP: 3150 Fighter 2 HPs 14/24 AC 17/T12/FF15

Enjoy not being hassled by internet proximity, DM Tareth. .... :}

Male Elf Shadowcaster 4

Hey, I resemble that remark :P


I'm back in town and trying to get caught up today. I going through your character backgrounds and looking to get a sense of what had happened in DM Kudos campaign and how I can integrate it into the current storyline.

To try and answer Anwel's earlier question about story continuity, I'll likely say that the Kudos group arrived prior to our party and then set out exploring before the settlers arrived at Oleg's. Thus you'll still have met Oleg, Svetlana, and even Kesten. The other encounter with the undead creature and the boneyard will make for an interesting tale and possibly some follow up later on.

The only real inconsistency will be Happs and the other bandits from the first encounter who were 'rehabilitated.' I'm still thinking about this.

Finally, I'm checking with the current players to make sure who is active or not so I can decide if bringing everyone across is workable.

Thanks all.

Okay. Everyone from DM Kudos game who wants to join this one is welcome. Please post a quick confirmation in this thread if you're still interested and plan to join. This will make for a bit of a large group early on, but I think it will be fine. As the current encounter wraps up I'll look to bring the new players on board.

17/17HP; AC17/13/14; Fort +4 Ref +6 Will +0; Init+3; Perception +7

I'm up for entry. Thank you very much, DM Tareth, for taking us on.

Very interested indeed, thanks. Stellan's white wolf familar needs DM approval since it's not RAW, if you approve; we can work out details later, right now he has the same stats as a fox.

Looking forward to this, seems an outstanding campaign.

Male Elf Shadowcaster 4

wrt Vinur: I believe Stellan's and Kudos' plan was for Stellan to take feats over the course of the campaign so that Vinur could grow into a fully-fledged Winter Wolf as time passed.

As for me, I'm still here, still raring to go, and still thankful for the opportunity and for the way you handled my question. Here's another: just how large will the group be, assuming all the Kudosites (except Bimbur, who's already here as Warren) switch over?

Male Human XP: 3150 Fighter 2 HPs 14/24 AC 17/T12/FF15

Ready to rock and roll and swing ineffectually at big nasty baddies, really appreciate the opportunity.

Do you want to take our current characters as is?
Do you want us to level them up in line with your current players (level 2)?
Do you want us to use your character guidelines to rebuild their stats?
I copied this from the original recruitment thread:

Character Guidelines for initial players
Party of five or six characters
Core races ONLY
Pathfinder Core Book and Advanced Players Guide ONLY
25 point build (No stat below 8)
No evil characters
2 Traits (Traits from Kingmaker Players Guide and/or APG are accepted)
1st Level with maximum starting gold and HP
Ability to post at least once per day
RP will be encouraged and rewarded


From a later recruitment ....
Character Guidelines for replacement
Core races ONLY
Pathfinder Core Book and Advanced Players Guide ONLY
25 point build (No stat below 8)
No evil characters
2 Traits (Traits from Kingmaker Players Guide and/or APG are accepted)
2nd Level. Starting gold is First Level Max+20gp. Starting HP is First Level max plus roll for second level.
Ability to post at least once per day
RP is encouraged and rewarded

Party size will be 8 or 9 to begin with.

As for stats, keep the characters as is for now. It looks like most of you should be fairly close to leveling up, so should be level 2 within a short time and the stat buy was the same.

All treasure the group has received up to this point is still available.

Stellan: The winter wolf familiar is fine. Keep the stats as a dog for now. However, fair warning, this group has already encountered an elder worg/winter wolf and she could take an interest in your companion in a little under a year. :)

Thank you, Tareth. I'm not worried about the treasure I'm sure it'll work out over time.

Concerning Vinur, I have thought about his maturation rate. I'd come to the thought that he should grow as Stellan's power grew. If he grew up as fast as normal wolves do, and he's not a normal wolf, he would already be well past full growth. Of course, the rules are yours to judge, it just would be odd to have a horse sized wolf with the group right now.

The stats are as a fox, not dog, for now, he's smaller, a young cub or puppy as he has been for years.

Vinur barks at Tareth waging his tail. Stellan says, "Show'em, Vinur!"

Here are Vinur's stats.
