Tavlor is currently tending to Ameiko in the caravan..however I suspect the party will be falling back from the castle soon..


Male Human

I've been kicking around an idea for a character in a Reign of Winter game, a Kellid Ranger (Horse Lord), and I was wondering...do y'all think the alternate human racial trait "Eye for Talent" is worth the loss of the feat?


Female Human(Iresseni/Taldan) Witch(Winter Witch Archetype) 1

What book is that in?

As you can see I have my character ready for this..Dallink


Male Human

It's in the APG. The write-up is as follows:

Eye for Talent - Humans have great intuition for hidden potential. They gain a +2 racial bonus on Sense Motive checks. In addition, when they acquire an animal companion, bonded mount, cohort, or familiar, that creature gains a +2 bonus to one ability score of the character's choice. This racial trait replaces the bonus feat trait.


Male Human

Another opinion poll: If I do go with a Kellid Ranger, I can't decide if I should be focused on Dexterity, Strength, or try to go even on both. The Trick-Riding feat is pretty awesome, but requires wearing Light or no armor, and that requires a pretty big investment in dex that I'm not sure I should commit to.


Male Human

Another good option seems like it'd be a Mounted Fury Barbarian. Regardless, you'd want to be level 10 before you went into Mammoth Rider for either the 5th rage power or the 3rd combat style feat. So let's compare:

Level 10 Ranger
-----------------
10d10 hit dice
+10 BAB
Good Fort / Good Ref saves
2 Favored Terrains
3 Favored Enemies
3+Bonus spells per day, CL 6, from a decent list
3 bonus feats
Evasion
Wild Empathy
Endurance
Track
Woodland Stride
Swift Tracker

Level 10 Barbarian
--------------------
10d12 hit dice
+10 BAB
Good Fort save
Trap Sense + 3
DR 2/-
Rage Power (5) - Beast Totem line + Ferocious Mount & Greater FM
22+ Con Rage rounds (half if you let mount rage..and why wouldn't you with the extras from the Beast Totem line?)

The basic difference seems like the Ranger has greater versatility while the Barbarian is tougher and has a greater potential for pure damage output. Of course, I suppose if you're aiming for Mammoth Rider, that should be enough to make your decision for you.

Shadow Lodge

Super excited for Reign of Winter. No idea whatsoever what I'll play, though. I have had an idea for a half-orc sorcerer that I've been batting around for a while. Might break that out.


Male Human

I've had a Horse Lord Ranger ready in HeroLab for a month now, but I saw the Mounted Fury Barbarian on another thread about the Mammoth Rider and it piqued my interest...now I can't decide which I wanna go with!


Took me about three days to refine Ekaterina..her traits might change especially if there's one to make her the potential daughter of Baba Yaga.


Male Human

I think I'm going to stick with a Kellid Ranger (Horse Lord). I may get more damage out of a Barbarian, but the added versatility of the Ranger is just something I'd much rather have.


Male Human

While I'm thinking of it...you guys have been a really good gaming group and I really enjoy playing with you all very much. Each of you has volunteered to run a PbP of each AP that has been released since Jade Regent, and since I've gotten my proverbial feet wet - heck, since I've dove into PbPs headfirst - I thought it was time for me to get my DMing feet wet. I can always put my Kellid Horse Lord in a different game.

So...if y'all are up for it, I'll volunteer to DM a Reign of Winter PbP and open it up to you guys first. Haven't created the thread or anything yet, of course, just figured I would give y'all a heads-up.

Just so happens that one of my other games dies so I won't feel too much like I am overstepping my current commitments, so count me in ;-) What to play though...


Male Human

Woo! That gives us two players from this group...you and Daniel. I'm thinking I'll recruit up to five or six players. That seems to be the standard going rate for PbP recruitment, just in case some people have to drop out.


Female Human(Iresseni/Taldan) Witch(Winter Witch Archetype) 1

Count me in...Dallink


Male Human

So here's my Kellid Horse Lord that I want to possibly play in a Reign of Winter PbP and was hoping to get some feedback. Lemme know what y'all think of it! Thanks!

Shadow Lodge

You know what Phillip, count me in. Will have a character up asap.


Male Human (American) Dungeon Master (Action Movie Director) 17

Thinking playing a Ranger (Shapeshifter). Thoughts?


Male Human

Sounds good! I think a Ranger will be a good class to play in RoW. That would give us four people from our group playing. Full party size! I might try and recruit one or two more, but perhaps not. The party so far would be a Shapeshifter Ranger and Winter Witch. Any idea which form you would go with, Hector?

Shadow Lodge

No idea, I'm still tossing things around. I'll probably go through several character concepts before I decide on one. I also thought of something. From the description, it seems like we won't be starting in Irrisen, but will be going through a portal and end up there. When the player's guide comes out, I hope they let us know where we'll be beginning at, as it might influence my character.


Male Human Optician 10

Sorry I haven't posted anything in the last few days. I just had laser vision correction surgery last week and am just now getting to where I can stare at the monitor and actually make out most of the words!

Shadow Lodge

It's all good man. Considering you're recovering from surgery, I'm surprised you've only been gone this long, lol. Grats on a speedy recovery.

Qadira

Male Human Desk Monkey 2/ Logistics Guru 3/ Over-educated 2/Gamer 6

Yeah that stuff can take some getting used to. No worries on the posting, truth be told seems like our JR game is sort of our "lazy" game in that we seem to be moving slower than other games but we keep moving along at our pace just fine :P

Shadow Lodge

I may be deciding on what to play for Reign of Winter (and I'm really starting to warm to the shapeshifter idea), but I know what I want to play for the as-so-far unnamed Worldwound Crusade AP after it. Dhampir Inquisitor (or paladin). Because a half-vampire demon hunter is just too cool not to do.


Male Human

That does sound really cool. And actually, they have named that AP. There was a naming contest of sorts on one of the message boards. If memory serves, it's going to be called "Wrath of the Righteous."

Also, Happy Thanksgiving to all of my PbP friends! I'm thankful to have such an awesome group of role-players to hang out with!

Shadow Lodge

I remember there being a contest of sorts, but never saw the end of it.

Likewise with the Happy Thanksgiving for all of my friends here on the boards. You guys have been great to hang out with.


Male Human

Regarding the Reign of Winter AP, after reading the "Snows of Summer" blurb and doing a bit more research, it seems that the AP isn't necessarily going to start in Irrisen; in fact, it's encouraged for it to start somewhere else, in a small town called Heldren, designed to fit pretty much anywhere within Avistan. So..it seems like the opening is more-or-less where we want it.

I wanted to get votes from everyone and see where y'all thought you'd like to get this shindig started when the time comes. Cheliax, Taldor, Varisia, Kyonin. Any place will work.

Shadow Lodge

I'd say somewhere human-centric and in Avistan. As we'll be spending at least a fair portion of the AP in Irrisen, it would be a little jarring for our characters to be from warm climes. Not that we all need to be already used to being in furs, but at least acclimated to more temperate zones. I'd also think somewhere near-ish to Irrisen would be better to give our characters more emotional involvement. The only thing I can gather, though, is that it describes Heldren as being "far to the south".

But really I think it amounts to wherever the group wants its characters to be from. I still think it would be best to wait for the Player's Guide.

My 2cp.


Male Human

Yeah, you're right. Still three months until the release of the player's guide. No reason to get in a big hurry about it. I suppose I'm just excited!


I believe it starts in Taldor..

Shadow Lodge

Reign of Winter final cover design is now officially up. Looks quite awesome if I do say so myself.


Male Human

I agree entirely.


Male Human

You're correct that it starts in Taldor, Wellard. Helgren is not too far from Zimar, which is near the southern border of Taldor.

I'm thinking about explaining my barbarian as having attempted to join a Taldan military force, but he was turned down because whenever he was injured in a fight, even a little, he flew into a wild rage. Basically, for the first few levels at least, if the guy takes more than one or two HP of damage, he immediately rages until he's out of rage or the fight's over.

Not optimal, I know, but I think it'd be interesting to play a character who for the first little while of his adventuring career, is unable to control his outbursts.


Male Human

Anyone hear anything from Nirthuus? It's been almost two weeks since he's posted in any of his threads.

Shadow Lodge

I think I remember him posting somewhere about what's been keeping him. Can't for the life of me remember where or what it was.


AC/Touch/Flat 17/12/15 | Fort/Ref/Will +5/+2/+9 | Init +2 | CMB +1; CMD 13
Skills:
Bluff + 1, Climb + 3, Diplomacy + 5, Heal + 8, Perception + 10, Ride + 1, Sense Motive + 8, Spellcraft + 10 {12}, Stealth +4, Survival + 8, Swim -1

Well he had eye surgery right? But that was late November, not sure if that is still what is bothering him. Hopefully he is okay.


Male Human

Yeah, he did have eye surgery, but the last post he made here was on the 19th of November and seemed to indicate that his eyes were getting better.


Male Human Optician 10

Sorry, I'm still here. I just have a lot of stuff going on and haven't had the chance to check in.


Male Human

Glad to see that you're alright, Nirthuus!


Male Human Ranger 1; HP 33/33; AC 17/13/14; F+5/R+6/W+2; Init. +3; Per. +7 (+9 vs. animals)

So here's the Mounted Fury Barbarian that I want to try and get into a Reign of Winter game when recruiting for them starts. What y'all think?

I like


Male Human

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Shadow Lodge

FYI, my comp is on the fritz ATM. Posting this from my phone. Ill try to keep up, but posting may be sporadic while I get it worked on.

Qadira

Male Human Desk Monkey 2/ Logistics Guru 3/ Over-educated 2/Gamer 6

Sorry guys, I got knocked on my ass by a major virus and I am just now getting back on my feet. It will probably be another 24-36 hours before I get back on posting. Sorry for the delay.


Male Human

So...Reign of Winter should be starting in the next three weeks or so, right at our doorstep! I wanted to go ahead and ask again which of the people in this game were wanting to play that adventure path so I could figure out if any extra recruiting needs to be done.

So...if any of you were wanting to play in the RoW game I'll run, please let me know. Thank you!


Female Human(Iresseni/Taldan) Witch(Winter Witch Archetype) 1

Still in and now with added traits from the People of the North


Male Human

Cool! Someone on the RoW AP board said that the traits in the player's guide are probably going to be a re-print of the ones from People of the North, at least in part.

I hope there's a good one for my barbarian/aspiring mammoth rider!


Male Human Optician 10

I don't know. I'm kind of waiting to see the player's guide for this one. The title alone gives me pause: Reign of Winter. Between the Jade Regent game going to the Crown of the world, Skyrim, and real world weather, I'm already getting tired of wintery-ness. I don't know if I'd want another game set in snow and ice.


Male Human

Come one, come all!

DM-Phil's Reign of Winter Discussion Thread


Talking about Skyrim..had the funniest thing happen the other day.

I was fighting a dragon which tried to land and skidded right past me ..a spectacularly bad landing that took it well away from me and allowed me to fill it full of arrows as it went past and tried to regain it's feet.
