I work for a company that does pre-deployment training for the Army. We replicate the culture of the country the unit is about to deploy to. We have several villages set up in an area behind post we call the box. To keep it realistic and keep people off their cells (as well as to keep from any damage to expensive stuff), we're not permitted any electronic devices while in the field. I got selected to help do a spec. op. training in which I'll be on 24 hour shifts for 6 days during force-on-force field training exercises. My position is "role-player". People get a kick when I tell I'm literally a professional role-player. lol

Oh I have read about this sort of work, I remember thinking that it was awesome to be able to point at something like that and then point at roleplaying and be able to say "see, these are valuable skills!" That has to be pretty intense work I would wager, thanks for being willing to fill me in on it.

Quick question...the two vials that Hannah put into the bag, what are they??(so I can update my equipment!)


The vials were antitoxin for which you pay by providing the leeches to Hannah.

Daniel: I like the idea of using a real-world language for Skald. I figured it was a language like Norwegian or Icelandic or something, but wasn't sure until I plugged it into Google Translator. Geez, that thing is amazing. I'll have to be sure to use it when Runa and Úlf want to clandestinely make fun of the others right in front of them.


Female Human (Varisian/Shoanti) Summoner (Synthesist) 3

Wellard, I have a question. As there is no official ruling on it, summoner class states that an eidolon cannot wear armor as it interferes with their intrinsic connection with the summoner, yet with the synthesist, the eidolon and the summoner are the same being. It states under fused eidolon that the summoner can use all its gear while bound to its eidolon, but that the ability functions the same as the summoner's standard eidolon ability. There is a rather sizable argument going on in the summoner forums about this, and with no official rulings or errata, what is your ruling? Can I get the armor bonus to AC from my leather armor while bound to my eidolon or no?


Male Human Expert (GM) / Level ??

DM Wellard: Out of curiosity, do you have a map of the marsh? Barring that, would we know the direction the first group went (the one that disappeared)? I suppose I'm not sure exactly where we're supposed to be going . . .

Perhaps I should roll a Knowledge (geography) check for Namuril?

Umm . . . Welsh? Gaelic? Tolkien-Elf Language?!? I know; I was also jealous, because Elven doesn't really have an analogue . . . ;)

There is a program online somewhere that translates text into sindarin (Tolkien Elven), I believe.

Welsh might work...

Nevermind, Wellard, I found the FAQ for the synthesist summoner. I'll make any necessary changes to his stats now that I've got the official rulings.


A general overview off the marsh might be possible but off course the community use policy prevents me just producing the one from the AP itself.I'll try and work something up on CC3 but it might be a bit rough and ready.

I've tended to use Welsh for elvish in my games..Gaelic is Kellid in my Golarion


Male Human Expert (GM) / Level ??

That's okay DM Wellard; I completely understand.

I think I'll use Welsh. Ydy hyn yn gadarn cytuno i chi, PirateDevon?


Female Human (Varisian/Shoanti) Summoner (Synthesist) 3

Oh yeah, well three can play at that game.

Draconic anyone? I was thinking Arabic myself. Has the right sound to me.

Arapça ingilizleşmek için biraz zor gibi biraz daha iyi, Türk iş olabilir düşünüyorum. . .Lissa, ne diyorsunuz?

Spoiler:
I think Turkish might work a bit better, as Arabic is a little harder to anglicize . . . what do you say, Lissa?

For Example:
أعتقد التركية قد عمل على نحو أفضل قليلا، واللغة العربية هي اصعب قليلا لأنكلز. . . ماذا تقول، ليسا؟


Arabic, Parsi or Pashtun would work

In the longer run, if it is worth the effort I might be able to help with this. I have my own webspace and I am sure I could set up a subdomain with login access so we could post images just for the group. It might not be worth it but if the AP tends towards lot of visuals I wanted to put this out there as a possibility rather than have you remake all the aids.


Well between CC 3 hexographer and dungeoncrafter I can cover most things..the marsh map has tags on so I couldn't have posted it anyway.

if anyone need to contact me outside of game my e-mail is on my profile.


So... Latin for Celestial then? :)


Female Human (Varisian/Shoanti) Summoner (Synthesist) 3

I suggested Arabic specifically for the foreign characters. They have a signature look to them that looks mysterious to non-speakers, though Pastun or Dari could work just as well.

@Tavlor Latin would be the traditional choice for celestial, though in my opinion it's a bit cliche. Also, being the root language for most western tongues, it is somewhat-easy to decipher a rough meaning. For age as well as reverence and exoticism I'd think Hebrew or ancient Greek.


Is there room enough to move around on our side of the river so we have a clear shot?


If you all want to wait for the map before deciding on actions that's fine by me..


Male Human Expert (GM) / Level ??

Out of curiosity, DM: Are we rolling initiative/attacks/damage when we declare actions, in order to save time? That's the way I've done it in the game thread; I hope that's okay. Of course, the map might tell me that I can't do what I want, heh.


Normally I'll roll the initiative for the entire party and the opponents at the start of combat..that speeds things up a lot. Post in whatever order you wish..I'm sorry about the delay in the map but I knew you could all do what you wished.


Male Human

Seems Úlf won't be seeing much action this combat. Sad.

Cool; thanks for clearing that up1 I'll resist rolling initiative in the future.

It's okay about the map, too. It worked out! :)


Updated my action in case the only goblin left was asleep, I don't want to wake him.


Don't count ulf out yet..noone faster than you seems able to hit the little begger..apart from Tavlor scorching him a little.lets see what Omara and Cinder do..


Male Human

Probably safe to say that if the goblin does make it to Úlf, it won't be making it any farther..

Yup...but as I said, your accent is slightly different than Runa's. She is actually from Irrisen, close to the border with the Mammoth Lords.

Well that cinches it, someone at the front door should stab this guy in the FACE! Being all jittery and what not...

Sorry, couldn't resist.


SZaladrel asked if it was possible to distinguish the accents of the two skaldik speakers as being different..I would have to say not..you probably dont have enough knowledge of the region.

I for one can't tell Danish and Norwegian apart but a native speaker could

Hmm fair enough, it just was a weird thought that bubbled up.


The suspense is killing me! :D


Male Human Expert (GM) / Level ??

Weirdly, I was not expecting Proudstump to go all monstrous. Somebody needs to heal Tavlor, fast!


Tavlor Losh wrote:

Apparently literally :D

Runa, I thought both the Sacred Touch and Healing hex were standard actions, which means you could only do one. On the other hand, I also thought that any magical healing automatically stabilizes someone, so that's all you would need to do.


Male Human

Yikes! Well that was unexpected...

Just hoping that there's enough room for Úlf to get his licks in. A little worried about that attack roll...it seems like it's right there on the edge of hitting/not hitting. Even if it does hit, it's a pretty crappy damage roll.


Female Human (Ulfen/Tien) Witch/3

I was not sure if I could use a move action for one of them. I wanted to try and get you back into the fight asap, but was not sure if my hex was considered the same as magical healing. Just trying to cover all the bases..lol..but if I had to give up one, then I would just hex you. (just wanted to make sure you did not slip away through a misunderstanding!! lol)


Oh, I appreciate it. Get all the healing in there you can :).


Female Human (Ulfen/Tien) Witch/3

LOL...my thought exactly...and I feel a bit guilty about the sneak attack...I never thought the halfling was some weird beastie!!


Nah, no guilty feelings. My sense motive caught that he was up to something, but I interpreted it as being frightened and not wanting to help us... not an attack... so my bad :)

I'm not sure how willing Tavlor is going to be to take point for a while, though :)


Male Human

Not sure if Úlf will be willing to lead on issues of diplomacy. I would imagine his idea of negotiating would be more along the lines of "Would you rather be completely dead, or mostly dead?"


Female Human (Varisian/Shoanti) Summoner (Synthesist) 3

Here I was all thinking he was possessed or held captive or something. Totally didn't see that coming.


Male Human

Anybody got any theories on what we're actually dealing with?

Also, since a few threats have been rolled, it reminds me of something I wanted to ask. If and when we roll a crit, are we supposed to roll one die and multiply the result by the crit multiplier, or roll a number of damage dice equal to the crit multiplier?

The Exchange

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

Not sure what it could be, not nice apparently. Just for the record Zaladfel is fdeling pretty bad about it ( or will)
Dm Wellard: since I am at the end of the initiative order I am going to wait to see what proudstump does before I post. Given the circumstances,there are too many things he could for me to feel confident posting in advance...


Well, someone can roll a knowledge check to see if they know what it is... not sure which knowledge it would be.
