Playing in 20+ games and running 29 (soon to be 30) is time consuming. Outside of the boards I have a fairly busy work schedule and of course a life!

Often I find that if I fall behind in updates, I need to make time to simply update a Discussion Thread to inform the PCs of a particular game that I am either going to be posting later in the day or week or will be on a break form the boards for one reason or another.

To save time updating so many damn threads I am going to open this thread and link all of my DM aliases (and PC aliases) to this thread to inform people as to status.

Of course if people feel the need to ask other questions outside of PbP feel free to do so but mainly this will be a thread dedicated to ensuring that my PCs know my status and to assure everyone that even though I may have some absences away from the boards (or particular games) this thread will always be up to date with my status.

Neato, I'll do my best to check in on that periodically.

Out of curiosity, how exactly does one survive so many PbP games? I was in around 6 or so at one point (and only as a player!) and found it difficult to be able to keep up with those while posting meangful responses every day.

I just don't post every day :-)


Makes sense. If I tried to do what you do I think I'd be stark raving mad inside a month!

Too late for me to respond now but Sunday I'll be reading through and moving us forward.

I actually did miss that, so scratch that bit from my last post. Lorik will still be suspicious though! Thanks for mentioning

FYI Kreighton's membership verification is a formality only, it's a set of facts about you personally that you told the Society to ensure that only those who are actually Members will gain access to the deeper mysteries and sections of the Lodge's. Prevents others from simply copying your appearances to gain advantages from the Society.


Shadow's Status

Nice hot start folks, I'll give one more day to wind down your scene and then we'll go back to Prologues for the Interviews. Be prepared to answer a number of questions, I like my RP to be lively ;-0. Luckily, it seems so do the rest of you!

Lorik's new side quest; get the group matching plumed hats.

This will be the first among the game that I update tomorrow. My Status thread, assuming you have been following it, has noted my health issues this past week but I believe by tomorrow I should be tip top once more.

Thanks, let's see what tonight holds. If I am up to it, I'll update.


Shadow's Status

Sorry for that long delay but what can you do?!

Interviews are up, these are not easy questions and I think will be fun to answer. They will enable each of you to really flesh out the background of your PC. Obviously, each of you will be selected but I felt the opportunity to RP was worth starting where I did in the process.

Glad to have you back ^_^

I'll probably post/answer tomorrow, lots of work to do today :/

Looking forward to getting to sit and think them through though.


Am working on my response to the questions, probably won't have it up until tomorrow. Bit of a busy day catching up after not posting on Sunday (did not expect that many new posts in my games).


Male Half-Elf Stalker 1/Delver 1 | HP 10/10 | AC 17 T 14 FF 13 | Fort +2 Ref +5 Will +5 (+2 vs Enchantments) | CMB 1 / CMD 17 | Initiative +4 | Perception +10 (+2 Underwater) | Low-Light, Darkvision 60 feet | 1 Hero Point | Active Effects: Hide from Undead.

Yep, same here. I've got them about half done. Tomorrow's the day.

similar. swamped at work. answers forthcoming


Phew. It is hard answering job interview-style questions for someone with a background that is completely different than yours.

Easier in that it is okay to make stuff up though. :)


Shadow's Status

Excellent job folks! On the bright side after that all RL interviews should be a piece of cake. Remember to place your response in your profiles so you'll have those stories to fall back o as references as we move forward with the game.

Update now.


Shadow's Status

Still behind on updates for other threads. I'll move this one forward again tomorrow.

Tried to hit this tonight, hitting the wall instead, I think I can get to it in the afternoon tomorrow.

There are rules to learn a new language via books. But no prices listed for them. So DM how much does a Tien language book cost in Absalom?

5 grand?! Sweet


Male Plumekith Unchained Monk/Pathfinder Savant 1

Going to be a hard choice, picking only one item in that price range. Wonder what would be the most useful for Tosen or the group. A mallet of building could help the colony. Sadly it's a one trick pony. Decisions, decisions.

@DM
Thanks for the price, sucks that monks get so little money. Good thing Tosen is not wasteful. x)


Male Plumekith Unchained Monk/Pathfinder Savant 1

In case some of you guys forgot we are using the ABP system in this game. So no belts, headbands, cloaks, amulets, or rings that boost stats or defenses will be used. Sense you will inherently gain that stuff as you level starting at 2nd level.

Unless the DM changed that and I missed it.

So you can't buy a +1 longsword but you can buy a flaming longsword. It will gain it's +1 when your 3rd level. :)

Lorik... Lens of Detection does what Eyes of the Eagle does, but with a little extra for tracking, if you want. ... Just a thought.

Ask for both.

That way if they can't find one, they might be able to find the other one.


Decisions, decisions. I'm not sure what I'll want to grab. Need to think about it.

off hand, does anyone know of an item that would replicate a few druid spells, aside from a few wands?

A Cloak of the Hedge Wizard (Abjuration) does Resistance (at will) and Endure Elements (once per day). It also does a 'Shield' spell once per day, but that's not druid oriented.

A Bag of Tricks (any) could be disguised as a animal summoning.

Druids are usually experts on healing: Healer’s Gloves would help with Heal checks.

I'm thinking either a Cloak of Elvenkind (stealth is good for hunting, eleven heritage) or the Lenses of Detection (for obvious reasons). Stuck between the two, anyone have any interesting thoughts, does one seem more appropriate than the other? I'm leaning towards the Cloak myself.


M Human Gestalt: Oracle-1/Pathfinder Field Agent-1 | HP:9/9 | AC15, T11, FF14 | F+1 R+2 W+2 (+6charm/compul, -1fear) | CMB+3 CMD14/18 | Init+4, Percep+4

ooo, bag of tricks. that's a good one.

btw, just found the bag of everlasting dung... how have we lived this long without one

My day is complete.

I think the bag of tricks is a neat idea too for Druiding it up, I have one in another campaign that I've had a blast with.
