I must confess, we are closing in on an encounter and I would properly not be able to make a map at that time, so I see two options the first we take the encounter without a map, the second one who is proficient with map making makes a basic grit system. What would you prefer?


Male Human Arcane Duelist 1, Init +3, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3, 17 AC, 14 Touch, 13 FF, Rapier +3 (1d6+2)

I'm okay using no visual map, so long as the imagery is clearly depicted.

Grand Lodge

Male Elf Druid 1

Hmm, Not really caring either way. No map?

No map is fine, I am not used to using them in PbP anyhow.


How do you guys feel about me rolling dices for you like I just did in the post in the gameplay thread?

In regards to knowledge rolls I am going to treat them as follows. If you are untrained you are allowed to roll but 10 is your maximum result. If you are trained you roll as normal. Most monster identification takes at least 10.

Bardic knowledge is of cause an exception to what I wrote above.


I'm fine with it. Speeds things along, and as long as everyone can see the rolls, the board is equally fair to everyone.

I have one question, how much damage did the house sustain?


It still seam to stand firm your best guess is no damage to the carrying parts yet.

MEANWHILE, AT CAMP!!!!

"Did anyone bother to bring playing cards?"

NOW BACK TO OUR HERO LOGEN!

Male Half-Orc Barbarian (Sea Reaver) 2 AC -4/10/14 (all down 2 when raging) Saves-5(6 raging)/1/-1(1 raging) Perception-4 Init-2

yes, so much yes. i shall jack sparrow it up


Intimidate only has two uses. The demoralize action which targets one creature and is a standard action and influence attitude (what you're trying to do Logen) which requires 1 minute of conversation. Making it impossible to do in combat.

Sczarni

Male Half-Orc Barbarian (Sea Reaver) 2 AC -4/10/14 (all down 2 when raging) Saves-5(6 raging)/1/-1(1 raging) Perception-4 Init-2

...well that's just dumb that a social interaction is so restricted. i'll let the DM decide, but if he's going to go strait from the book and not let me do it i'll just kill em

edit:oh also i remembered, since i'm a size category bigger i get a +4 on the intimidate, if i AM allowed to do it


The way I see it you have two options one use intimidate to give one the shaken condition and two after 1 minute force them to act friendly. I am going to go by the book on this one as I think multiple shaken conditions is to powerful for a standard action check for a skill.

If that makes you want to change your action or something in your character let me know.


Please don't take this as some sort of post order service, but please write in a spoiler what sort of magic gear you envision for your character.

Sczarni

Male Half-Orc Barbarian (Sea Reaver) 2 AC -4/10/14 (all down 2 when raging) Saves-5(6 raging)/1/-1(1 raging) Perception-4 Init-2

Fantasies:
Definitely an enchanted falchion, probably an enchanted hide shirt, then just str/cha boosting items. pretty straitforward


Male Human Arcane Duelist 1, Init +3, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3, 17 AC, 14 Touch, 13 FF, Rapier +3 (1d6+2)

Darius' Christmas List:
Magical Rapier would be nice. Items that increase Dex, Cha, and Str would be lovely, but aren't required. Pearl of Powers are really nice as well. If I think of anything else I'll post it here.


Male Human Cavalier Order of the Star/ Stalwart Defender

Possible Upgrades:
Initally I will want a magical weapon long sword. Then Armor. Then Shield. Thats the order of priorty. As far as what I want enchanted really depends on whats avalible at the time. I hope to eventually become a Holy Vindicator, so things Holy Avengers and heavy fortified adamantine breastplates would be the ultimate goal.


Magical Gear:

Enchant armor and shield, then belt of strength, then +1 sword, then amulet of NA and ring of protection. Pretty much completely standard melee character stuff.

Grand Lodge

Male Elf Druid 1

Enchantment:

A enchanted longbow with enchanted arrows for sure[


I know it might not be the most pressing concern, but would you like to have the leadership feat as an option in this campaign or do you feel it is to powerful?


Never actually played with it, but since it would allow us to effective double party size and each create a mini-character to compliment our weaknesses I would lean towards too powerful.

Grand Lodge

Male Elf Druid 1

It could be to powerful... But it depends. If everyone takes leadershipI could see it becoming a problem, but if one person were to take it to show his having gained some kind of rank, I could see it being ok.


Male Human Arcane Duelist 1, Init +3, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3, 17 AC, 14 Touch, 13 FF, Rapier +3 (1d6+2)

The way I see it, the minion is always 2 levels below us. A healer or a buffer wouldn't be overpowered, and if its a melee, then the companion will probably die. I wouldn't say overpowered, but it sure does slow down combat.


All right first combat done, what need to change? I am thinking a map would be nice, anything else? I like difficult combats and will properly not be doing many at your CR, a normal is properly going to be CR + 1 or 2.

In regards to xp, I'll keep loose track of them but you should keep the exact amount. I might give a new level at some point at which you just add the mount you need to level.

Sczarni

Male Half-Orc Barbarian (Sea Reaver) 2 AC -4/10/14 (all down 2 when raging) Saves-5(6 raging)/1/-1(1 raging) Perception-4 Init-2

map would be nice, this ran ok but map would still help. i'll keep in mind to not be TOTALLY suicidal for the high CR's lol

Sczarni

Male Half-Orc Barbarian (Sea Reaver) 2 AC -4/10/14 (all down 2 when raging) Saves-5(6 raging)/1/-1(1 raging) Perception-4 Init-2

also in the gameplay thread, under a spoiler i wrote the amount for the loot. how good are we going to be able to sell these items?


Male Human Arcane Duelist 1, Init +3, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3, 17 AC, 14 Touch, 13 FF, Rapier +3 (1d6+2)

I didn't do much this fight, and we still blazed through it pretty easily. I think fighting harder enemies will be fun. Maybe not at such a long scale. Not alot of us are range oriented.


@ Logen - I think the normal rate is about half, so something along those lines I guess.

@ Darius - To be honest I actually expected the scouts to sneak back and get the rest ready for a joined strike, but not everything goes according to plan, I'll keep it in mind though for further encounters.

Let me know if the fights get out of hand with CR, there are some CR 4 creatures I'm looking towards trying, but I guess that they'll have to wait 2-3 levels in the way I want to use them.

Sczarni

Male Half-Orc Barbarian (Sea Reaver) 2 AC -4/10/14 (all down 2 when raging) Saves-5(6 raging)/1/-1(1 raging) Perception-4 Init-2

Yes for the plans, Logen kinda does what he wants, plus an 8 wisdom doesn't help lol.

Half seems pretty fair in the army, but of course Logen would try to intimidate for more. Just so I don't have to waste the rolls/roleplaying for it, will that actually effect it?


@ Logen - No, but it could get you thrown in jail I guess. :D


Male Human Cavalier Order of the Star/ Stalwart Defender

A round update is nice example

Round 1

Logen initative 22 (currently in melee w/goblin #2)
Voldniq Initative 19 (currently in route to assist logen)

ect is good for a refferance and to keep pace


Male Human Cavalier Order of the Star/ Stalwart Defender

I would like the longsword if possible I will forfeit the rest of my loot.


Take it man. I've already got one, and we're the only two who use longswords. Do you want my old banded mail?

Sczarni

Male Half-Orc Barbarian (Sea Reaver) 2 AC -4/10/14 (all down 2 when raging) Saves-5(6 raging)/1/-1(1 raging) Perception-4 Init-2

by all means take it, glad we can put it to use.

@DM got it, don't threaten people in the army unless its actually needed lol


Male Human Cavalier Order of the Star/ Stalwart Defender

Sure if the banded is better than breastplate I forget will have to look at my books when I am home. Thanks

Sczarni

Male Half-Orc Barbarian (Sea Reaver) 2 AC -4/10/14 (all down 2 when raging) Saves-5(6 raging)/1/-1(1 raging) Perception-4 Init-2

banded has a max dex of 1, which would actually be harmful to you since yours is 14. the penalty would even out your ac and give you a higher check penalty

Hey guys, I will not be able to post until monday due to my home computer dying. Just a heads up.

Sczarni

Male Half-Orc Barbarian (Sea Reaver) 2 AC -4/10/14 (all down 2 when raging) Saves-5(6 raging)/1/-1(1 raging) Perception-4 Init-2

So as for loot if we sell everything we're not using we got 133gp and 100sp (or 143gp). I took a 50gp onyx, vaslo took a variety of of little useful magical items, and our LG friends each got a masterwork piece. i think the only person who hasn't gotten item loot is darius (if you count my gem, PIRATES LIKE FLASHY THINGS). are we wanting to the keep the money as 'party funds' and just spend it when we need something as a group? or do we want to split it up?

also, @DM, am i gonna b able to get the gem made into a ring? like i said, PIRATES LIKE FLASHY THINGS, and i didn't feel like breaking the bank for my lv1 character on gems lol.

Grand Lodge

Male Elf Druid 1

I definitely like the idea of party GP.

Sczarni

Male Half-Orc Barbarian (Sea Reaver) 2 AC -4/10/14 (all down 2 when raging) Saves-5(6 raging)/1/-1(1 raging) Perception-4 Init-2

as do i, that way we don't waste time on PBP for in-character arguments about money, AND it's a lot easier to keep track of


@ Logen - That should be possible if you can find someone to forge the ring for you, I imagine you have to go to Vigil to find a smith who can craft jewellery.

How you divide loot is up to you, I'll try to add some variation to the treasure you gain.

As for leveling we're going to use the fast track.

I am just going to underline that it is an option to run away there might be encounters where that is a solid option. As in kingmaker some encounters are going to be to dangerous to engage. Let me know if you don't want this kind of encounters.


Male Human Arcane Duelist 1, Init +3, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3, 17 AC, 14 Touch, 13 FF, Rapier +3 (1d6+2)

Make sure that it is painfully obvious that the person is strong/stronger than us/the rest of the enemies and I'm sure we'll do fine.

Sczarni

Male Half-Orc Barbarian (Sea Reaver) 2 AC -4/10/14 (all down 2 when raging) Saves-5(6 raging)/1/-1(1 raging) Perception-4 Init-2

its no fun if every fight is easy! haha if we're getting stomped and don't have the good sense to leave then that's our fault. we have a fairly balanced party so we should be able to handle most problems decently.

also about the gem, i'll just pocket it for now and get it crafted when the opportunity presents itself, such as if we're going through a large town


All right I got google drive to work, the first step towards sharing maps handouts etc. I am still trying to use maptools but have succeed yet.


Just letting everyone know that I'm gonna be on vacation from the 27th-6th. I'll have access to the internet, but I probably won't have much posting time. Feel free to DMPC me as needed to move things along.
