Den of the Slave Takers (4e)

Game Master Rev Rosey

4e adventures in the Chaos Scar set in Yorkshire turned up to 11.


201 to 250 of 438 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | next > last >>

Male Dragonborn Fighter (Guardian): 2

Didn't know what Feat or Utility Power to go for, so I went basic (Plate Armor and More Temp Hit Points) until I can ask a very nagging question.

What is a Stance power?

I have come across multiple STANCE powerss looking through Martial Prowess and the Player's Handbook and I have no idea what a Stance is. Is a stance something you take an action to adopt and then sustain as a minor every turn? (What I suspect it is but cannot be sure yet) Anyways, done leveling other than that, will we get enough money to afford my new armor or find a place that is able to forge it?


Human

That's so. You adopt a stance and it simply continues until you choose to end it. I don't think it requires a minor to maintain, but I could be wrong about that and will try and remember to check for you.


Male Wood Elf Rogue 2 (AC: 18, F: 14, R: 18, W: 15 | HP: 20/30 [7/7 surges] | AP: 0 | Init: +5 [+11] | Passives I: 19, P: 21)

Most stances last either until the end of the encounter, ended by the player, another stance is started (can't use more than 1 at a time), or the player goes unconscious. Stances make for good utility/Daily powers, because they last the whole encounter, and require no sustain action.

Skill Retrain: Nature to ???
Level Modifiers
HP & Surge Value
Feat: Spirit Talker

  • Training in Nature
  • Call Spirit Companion (std)
  • Spirit's Shield
  • Speak with Spirits (daily)
    Utility Power: There's some good ones here. I think I'll go with Fleet Pursuit to put Luces' movement up to 11 (after being bloodied & for 1 encounter). Skittering Sneak - turn into a small animal, sounds really interesting.


  • Male Dragonborn Fighter (Guardian): 2

    In that case, thank you Varis, I am changing my level two utility from unstoppable to the one that grants me Bloodied Regeneration :D because that would be very useful I think in deathly situations.


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    That one seems really cool too.

    I wonder how lucky we have been so far? Cause the battles have been lots of fun, and I am amazed how we survived, especially since 1st level in any game can be swingy.


    Human

    You were a little lucky in the Morgana encounter. She was their controller and healer and rolled bad init, which limited her effectiveness.

    The myconids are nasty. They don't have great defenses, but their damage distribution is an unpleasant power and they do a lot of damage for their level.

    Otherwise though, I think you've all played to your strengths very well and not been afraid to use powers.


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Aurix:
    Sorry, not trying to be that guy, but your attacks can be at +9 (+4 strength, +2 weapon, +1 one-handed weapon talent, +1 for half your level, +1 weapon focus)

    Also in the 'Adventurers Vault' there is a 'War Axe' which is the exact same thing as a Battle-Axe except for 'superior balance' & doing d12 damage!

    [spoiler = Luce] actually weapon focus doesn't give+1 attack bonus in 4e just damage and I believe that the waraxe is a superior weapon or "exotic" so I can't use it without a feat and I'd prefer to not try and use stuff I don't have the book for. Thanks anyways Luce [/spoiler ]

    Varis is updated
    Took the feat Wood Elf Agility
    and the Utility Great Leap

    Playing to his penchant for moving to all the hard to reach places.


    Evil GM

    Ooooh I get post 666
    \m/ ☺ \m/


    Human

    dun dun derrrr ...

    Cue ominous wind rising sound and shadowy thing appearing just out of Luce's vision.


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Oh I popped the treasure list in this PC Profile under PARTY POOL @ the bottom, for us to share out. Hope that is alright, I could put it in Luce's Beastform one to be more accessible?


    Male Dragonborn Fighter (Guardian): 2

    however you guys want to place our loot is fine as long as equal shares are in order XD GM Rosey? How easy or hard would it be to put some of my new found coin into buying a suit of these when we get back to the town:
    Plate Armor +1
    and Possibly some better weapons and shield?


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    I was thinking maybe split it into 6? With 1 share being party pool, I am alright with however we share though.


    Male Dragonborn Fighter (Guardian): 2

    That works for me but I would need to borrow a little from it to afford the armor :/


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Well, we can go equal 5 shares, but Luce isn't one to be stingy. Or you take extra from the party pool, 'cause a dragonborn in field-plate is awesome image :)


    Male Dragonborn Fighter (Guardian): 2

    Sounds good and I agree. That should be it for my share though it really depends on if the town of Lockeholme actually sells magical plate armor ;D


    Human

    Equal shares makes sense, but it really is up to you as a party. Don't forget that the Blackstreams are merchants and they will feel they owe you quite a bit. Your characters don't know it yet, but you will probably get a discount.


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Bah, I have been vacilating between Luce being serious and ominous and making 'Breakfast Club' quotes.


    Male Wood Elf Rogue 2 (AC: 18, F: 14, R: 18, W: 15 | HP: 20/30 [7/7 surges] | AP: 0 | Init: +5 [+11] | Passives I: 19, P: 21)

    Avoid 'The Breakfast Club' quotes, because then I will get involved, and we will just go back and forth until the movie as a whole has been quoted (as there are very few unquotable lines in it). Man, I love that movie.


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Happy, happy, happy, my friends have asked me to the Birmingham Games Expo next (not this) weekenend. So may be afk then.

    :)


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Must sleep now, read Varis' post as 'going after Killer Rabbits' rather than 'going after Rabbit Killers' and had a Holy Grail flash-back.

    Look out for husband and son. I can't go this year, which is making me grind my teeth. I have a youth theatre show to help with.


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Cool, I will. It's the first time for me though my friends have been going for a few years and tend to buy up the place!

    I'll be out all day playing 'Virgin Queen' - Tudor sequel to 'Here I Stand' war/board game.


    M Dwarf Wizard 2

    Levelled up Vondal, ready to go. Happy to go with the flow on the treasure allocation.


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Once we get into town, we'll split the reward if that's alright? After telling the Mayor/Magistrate about it. 366Gp each & a pool of 367 - that can be borrowed against or for potions/rituals etc.

    Wow, that was a long day. Got to play the French in 'The Virgin Queen'; which is set in the French Wars of Religion. Thus I got roundly attacked, even the Ottoman's took Paris on the second turn (damned Texan player betraying me once again ;P ). But at least I had Charles IX married Queen Elizabeth.


    Male Human 2nd Level Resourceful Warlord

    oky dokey all leveled up went with Heroic Effort utility power and weapon focus as my feat treasure allocation long as its fair for everyone im good with it

    Qadira

    M

    "The Virgin Queen"? Is this a board game? I have interest in this perhaps.


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Card-driven Wargame, it uses counters for armies and unlike the predecessor has patronage, marriage, piracy and better diplomacy than 'Here I Stand'.

    http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/41066/virgin-queen

    If you want to know any reccommendations, my friends and I play board (not war) games every friday night. There's about 12 of us, so we get through alot, our gracious hosts has 200+ and constantly gets new ones. So I have played more than my share. From Co-operative to resource management to popular to cards.


    Human

    DSX - please, I'm begging, meet up with my husband. He's Mr Board Game. We have so many stacked around the house and he'll be on the hunt for new stuff from Saturday onwards.

    He and son will be floating around the Strallan from Friday evening.

    Qadira

    M

    i prefer some old school games myself, but my favorites are Risk variants and Heroscape which is probably defunct now.

    Risk: Legacy is the one to look for. The way the first 15 games are played will effect how the game is played forever on.


    Human

    No such thing as a completely defunct game, Zero. Out of print and hard to find - surely. Definitively gone forever? Not likely.

    My personal favourite is Advanced Civ, but I've got a liking for Arkaham Horror and various collaborative games as well.

    Qadira

    M

    well true its not gone forever, but its a game with a series of expansion sets that'd make it even harder to find a full set of the game now. I was lucky and bought 3 copies of the master set at Toys R Us for like 20% of the standard price.

    If nothing else the minatures are great for a tabletop game!


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Pandemic is one of the best co-operative games, I've played. Very balanced and one of the few where the expansions greatly improve an already brilliant game. Arkham is great but takes too long for set-up for regular play, my friends sold 'Mansions of Madness' - saying it didn't quite work.

    I've not been to the Expo before, but my friends had a spare room and got me a ticket for my birthday last week. I've no idea what we are going to do. But Rev if 'him indoors' wants to e-mail me my adress is in my profile or pm me.


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Vondal or Tiberious which one wants the Safewing Amulet; +1 to Will/reflex/fort & reduces falling damage?


    Male Dragonborn Fighter (Guardian): 2

    Tiberious may like that one but I'm not sure I'll ask him when he gets off work


    M Dwarf Wizard 2

    He can have first choice.

    Given him your email.

    Do agree rather on Arkham. By the time you've finished allocating everyone all those game parts, the evening is half over. Still a mighty fine game though.


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Another 'Roleplaying' Board-game that is great is 'Tales of the Arabian Nights', a bit like a 'choose your own adventure'. About as random, lots of referencing and reading - but a nice game to play 2-3 times a year.

    Qadira

    M

    I know its a card game, but Gloom is pretty fun, that and Apples to Apples are played at my family getogethers.

    That's an excellent game, although I didn't know there was a new version. It occurred to me once that it could work in a PbP format, and the story-telling version at least could benefit from that.


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Yes, we tend to do a round-robin; Player 1 takes his turn, Player 2 cross-references and announces the options, Player 3 reads the outcome. Then we pass to the left, and next player has a turn.

    Therefore everyone is involved for each others go.

    Gloom, good game, in fact one of the few I own. Though I haven't played it that much, the end game seems to come too quickly (and it's quite vicious). The transparent cards are an awesome idea though.


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    Going to a gaming convention, in a couple of hours. I'll probably have no internet, but I'll be back Sunday evening (GMT).


    Human

    Gloom is great fun. We have it and enjoy it.

    Have a great time in Birmingham. Wish I was going, but I shall live it vicariously through updates sent by husband and son. Or I will if they want to come home to a serene me.


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    At least you have the beautiful sun, blue skies and no sweaty gamers, in a small space. :)


    Human

    This is true. Instead I have 75 other people's children in a small place. Not all at once, I admit, but over an 8 hour period :)


    (29/31) Razorclaw Shifter Predator Druid

    You win :)

    Off now.


    M Dwarf Wizard 2

    I've chosen an Amulet of Mental Resolve +1.


    Human

    OK.

    Aurix picked up some plate armour.

    Luce - hope you had a good time in B'ham. Gather you met the menfolk :)
