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

Depending on how the round goes I might try that, just dont want to waste an action if I can get Tavlor back on his feet or contribute to dropping this thing. That said if combat so far seems ineffective it might be the best choice.


I thought Knowledge checks were free actions.

Right, was more thinking that I might have to move and maneuver to see it or some such thing and pass Tavlor by - it's pretty crowded around the "not" Proudstump.

Thought that would be fine if I go to smack it I guess, I should have been clearer ; )


yay, not dead :D I will refrain from giving my opinion of what to do since I am still unconscious, but I will admit I was a little worried it might try to finish me off.


Don't do yourselves down guys you knocked it down to 1 HP in one round of combat..and it flees if it goes below 6.Combat is over.

Scent btw is a great way to discover creastures with shape changing abilities. It just didnt smell right to Tofa..Proudstump does come into town ocassionally and the smart little fox has probably encountered him before..and would remember his distinctive scent.

Knowledge:Dungeoneering to identify what that was.Remember you can try untrained checks but the best score you can get is a 10 (which off course is enough for an assist)

@ DM Wellard- Okay ever since I walked away from my last post I've gotten myself into a bit of an intellectual tizzy. Basically I am wondering if breadth of experience is a good feat, and let's me basically attempt, with a small bonus, any knowledge check I want a la bard lite (releasing me from the max 10 result cap) or is it a fairly bad feat that makes me really good at assisting people with knowledge checks (since it would basically make my assist dc -2) ? I'm getting caught up on the "untrained" text of the feat ie. Why mention it if everyone can try to make a knowledge check untrained? It seems to me that normal applications of the phrase "you can make this check untrained" via magic or other abilities is about lifting the inherent restrictions that being untrained brings but without giving you the significant bonuses that training provides...

I guess I am looking for a ruling and potentially a mea culpa feat adjustment depending, thanks.


I thought that meant you weren't limited to the 10 result cap...


@PD..My interpretation of the rather badly written feat is that you can make normal checks on every knowledge skill..however I won't allow take 10 or take 20 on untrained checks and your +2 bonus only goes on trained skills.

Ill adjust my sheet accordingly, thank you.

Well lets hope that thing does not come back and bite us in the rear, so to speak!!!!


Male Human

Sheesh. Ulf is good at hitting things, but he's got the visual acuity of a bleeding bat.


Don't feel so bad..Zaladrel is hardly a sharp eyed elf.

Geez. Apparently I need to find an elf avatar with giant hornrim glasses because Zaladrel can't seem to notice crap!

We can be blind together!

Qadira

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

I should note, as it occurs to me now that Runa is opening the door, that Zaladrel can look *through* doors/walls/what have you if we need to. Its one of his domain powers. The door can't be super super thick at this level but something to keep in mind if we don't want to pull it open blind. It does take me a minute though so not good when we are in a rush.

Although, that said, it may not matter that Zaladrel can look through walls since he is blind.

@Phillip0614 - If we are gonna be blind together I demand we have a cute name like "The Unseers" or "The Sandpoint Nevernotice" or something.

Having the cleric and fighter not being able to notice anything isn't too bad, mostly people will yell at Ulf "Go Hit THAT!" and will yell at Zaladrel "Go Buff/Heal/Turn THAT!" We don't really NEED to see anything...

Just reminding you, Wellard, that starting tomorrow I'll be at work for the next six days. I'll be back steady after that. I think you've got a good enough grasp of Lissa's personality to run her well enough. Do with her whatever you feel is best for your campaign in my absence.

Good luck with your work! Have fun with your professional role-playing!

Ty, see everyone in about a week.

Qadira

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

Just to be clear since I'm a pbp novice and all that I am not trying to antagonize or anything and am seeing this as positive conflict but if people see something amiss I want to know.


Oh yeah, It's all good :)

I'm just waiting on more people posting to respond, which probably means tomorrow at this point :)

I don't intend to split the party, since I've already been nearly 1-shotted... but that doesn't mean I'm going to be happy about it :)


Male Human Expert (GM) / Level ??

I find this conflict conducive to roleplaying; it's not really inter-party antagonism, in my opinion. I like it! Well done, both of you! It's adds a certain gravity to the game when there are differences of opinion, in-character. :)

EDIT: I'll be unable to post until later this evening; I've got church, lunch with the in-laws, and my tabletop Kingmaker game booking me solid until then! Feel free to move on without me! :)


I'd just like to say that you guys give me so much to work with..congratulations on meshing so well so quickly..one would think youd been doing this for years not two weeks.


Female Human - Taldan/Garundi Rogue (Swashbuckler) 3

Well, many of us have been playing RPGs for years. This is just a new venue (for us, at least.) In fact, I can see where a pbp would allow greater flexibility in role-playing than a tabletop game would.


Male Human

I agree. At the very least, it -seems- a lot easier to get into my character in this environment than it is around a table.

Qadira

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

Wheter we have all been playing for awhile or not apparently we cannot convince the boards to let us roll above a 10 when we want to perceive anything. We are the most unobservant group of characters ever. EVER! :-)


Male Human

And of course, the universe proves JUST this moment to prove you wrong. Though in this case, I won't be shaking my fist at it as a result. Thank you, universe! I'd kiss ya if I could!


I agree that PbP does allow for much greater character development..some of my characters here seem to have taken on a life of their own.


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

I have returned!

Qadira

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

Welcome back.

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

AAwww man one of my posts gotten eaten from yesterday...that sucks...oh well.


Welcome back indeed, there's a lot to catch up on :)


Male Human

Yay! Welcome back!


Male Human Expert (GM) / Level ??

Welcome back, Lissa!


Female Human - Taldan/Garundi Rogue (Swashbuckler) 3

Welcome back!


Male Human

Geez, I was thinking that you got done early, Lissa, but you really have been gone for nearly a week, haven't you? Six days ago. Doesn't seem like it's been that long.


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

Oh trust me, I felt every day of it... Someone fubar'd and we had no AC or showers with the heat index pushing around-ish 105-115 every day. Poor soldiers were from Alaska, so I know they were feeling it.


Oh man sounds like a real stinker.Well you should have a small idea of what the goblin huts smell like.


Male Human

The hardest part of being in this PbP is that I'm an AP Subscriber, so it would be really easy for me to pick up Brinewall Legacy and get an advance look into exactly what's going on. Such a temptation! I haven't done it yet, though, and I don't plan on doing it.

Maybe I should ask my wife to hide the books from me until we're done. >.>


Female Human (Ulfen/Tien) Witch/3

Man...I really got to remember to check the OOC board as well....sorry everyone!! Welcome back Lissa!! And having awesome time!!


Female Human - Taldan/Garundi Rogue (Swashbuckler) 3

I seem to be fighting off a cold, so I may be slow to respond for a couple of days.

I feel you on that one. I'm a high school teacher, myself.

I hate being sick! I hope you both feel better! :(

[random information]I have a (relatively) new daughter; she's my first child and 4 months old. I'm waiting for the time she eventually gets sick . . .[/random information]

Be prepared for alternating moods of helplessness, panic and frustration with the medical professionals.

I have an 8 year old with Autism and Delayed Development. She has an emotional age of about 2 1/2 and very little speech..One of the worst things about it is when she gets sick she can't express where she hurts.

My wife has three younger brothers with Autism, so I feel ya.

On a less serious note, I think I've been doing critical hit damage calculation wrong for as long as I can remember. After seeing how everyone's doing it in the PbP, I went and looked it up and, I be doggone, you DO roll the damage dice multiple times when a crit is scored. Since I started playing in tabletop RPGs nearly ten years ago, I've always seen it played, and played it, where you just take the one die of damage and multiply it by the weapon's critical multiplier.

I think this is a fairly common house type rule that shows up. I have played with groups that did this too. I feel like we knew it was not quite what the book said but I am probably wrong about that part. Nonetheless I have played it both ways. I like each system in their own right when I get more damage ;-)
