I was able to see the discussion tab. I didn't realize I had to activate it.


Male Aasimar (Angelkin) Oracle 1

Reporting for duty.

Argor Constantine, at your service.


Male Human Rogue (Scout) 1

Reporting in.

Still deciding on the portrait, but this is at the top of the running.


Male Goblin Fighter (Archer) 1

Ready for action!

Quick question, what are the rules on our starting gear? I know Kynrael's funds came from his Trait, but I haven't spotted any rule for the rest of us. And will I have been allowed to possibly use some of whatever starting funds we have to have prepared scrolls prior to adventure?

Also, Pork, do not think I'm just blatantly harassing your character should Argor make a snide remark in your direction, but it will take quite a bit of work to win Argor over on the idea of working with a goblin.

All in the name of good RP though. Game on!


Starting funds are average for class, and yes, if you have enough, you can certainly scribe a scroll or three.

Ok, gear purchased and added to character Alias.


Argor, I certainly won't take offense to any harassment of Pork, trusting a Goblin is not easy!


Male Human Rogue (Scout) 1

Character sheet in profile is finished. I had to drop the masterwork thieves' tools in favor of the regular kind in order to afford everything I wanted.

I remember reading that Molthune was happy to take on willing monstrous conscripts, though I'm not sure how much this would affect Cettigne. Rois has served on the Militia for over ten years, and may be quite used to serving beside goblins, hobgoblins, orcs, etc. If that is the case, he might be an ally to Fredex as the game begins.

How long ago did Fredex come to join the Militia, and under what circumstances?


Male Goblin Fighter (Archer) 1

I accidentally posted under my account: "Fredex" instead of my character's alias: "Pork". Both the account and the alias use the same avatar, so I'll change that to end any confusion.

As for how long Pork was in the Militia, I'll say he only recently joined. It started when he killed a wolf that was causing trouble for some farmers. By chance the Militia took notice, and after some questioning offered to recruit him, which Pork gladly accepted. Whether or not the Militia would have forced Pork into service if he declined I'll leave up to the DM. I'll add this to Pork's profile.

Am here. Lets get it going!


Male Goblin Fighter (Archer) 1

Is the Militia like the police or a powerful organization, i.e. what they say goes? How much influence/authority does a squad of Militia have over a local government?


The militia would be more like the town guard. They have a lot of respect in their community and can enforce laws. They really only have power within the area of Cettigne including a few nearby towns and villages such as where you are heading. The mayors/leaders of those communities would be considered of higher authority than the militia.


Male Human Rogue (Scout) 1

Argh. The website crashed in the middle of my post earlier today, but seems to be up and running now.


Same thing happened to me in the morning during my long post. Frustrating


Marana, are you still in this? You've only posted twice in five days.

I'm actually going to step out, with school, it's been slowing me down writing wise. I apologize for the inconvience.


Male Human Rogue (Scout) 1

Sad to lose you, Marana. Best wishes with school.

I have a few friends on these boards, and can ask if somebody is interested in playing another front-liner.


Okay. It should be easy to work them in at this stage.

Hey DM, what's your opinion on bonus Cantrips per day based on high ability scores? Seems ludicrous to me that I know more level 1 spells than level 0. Lol.


Male Goblin Fighter (Archer) 1

So should we keep posting or wait for you (DM) to find another player?


@Argor We will follow RAW. The main difference with cantrips is that you have unlimited casting.

@All Go ahead and continue posting. We'll add another character when possible.


Male Human Rogue (Scout) 1

I put the word out. Hoping to get a response soon.


Male Goblin Fighter (Archer) 1

Wait, is there a wagon/cart?


Male Human Rogue (Scout) 1

Hoping so! I don't believe we actually asked for one at dinner. We just discussed the possibility.


Sorry forgot about the cart.


M Disciple of Brimley 20

I think... I might have tried to steal the cart.


Any response on an additional player?


Male Human Rogue (Scout) 1

Somebody expressed interest, and so I told him to seek out this discussion thread. It looks as if he hasn't yet surfaced. There is another group of people I can ask, I just haven't been playing with them quite as long. They are all still good role-players and regular posters.


Male Human Rogue (Scout) 1

Okay, I'm going to ask for a fifth in another of my game threads.


Male Aasimar (Angelkin) Oracle 1

Tried asking some friends of mine if any of them would be interested; still no word there.


Do you guys prefer maps for encounters?


I do prefer maps. I enjoy the tactical aspect of Pathfinder, and especially as a rogue, I value knowing exactly where my allies and opponents are. Rois will almost always be working to move into a flanking position, and knowing what it takes to get there is extremely helpful. For instance, it lets me weigh the risk/reward of using Acrobatics to avoid provoking an attack of opportunity (if I need to move four squares to get a flank instead of three, I'm more likely to play it safe).

In the game that I run on these boards, I make simplistic maps using spreadsheets with Google Documents (I'm happy to say more about this, if you are interested). It's easy to move "markers" around on them, and all changes update the same link, so everyone is always looking at the current version of the map. A lot of DMs use MapTools, though I don't know to. Such maps are much better looking than Google Docs, but they may take more work.

I'm also a player in a game that doesn't use maps, and it works, but encounters aren't quite as engaging as a result of not knowing exact placement.


Male Goblin Fighter (Archer) 1

I've always liked combat that had some sort of map. Combat encounters in Pathfinder are actually interesting to play as a war game and maps also keep me engaged more than "hand-waving" through combat.

Map looks good to me.


Male Goblin Fighter (Archer) 1

I like the map. I don't seem to be able to edit it though, if that was something you wanted.


Just tell me where you move to and I will update.


That'll work great.


Male Aasimar (Angelkin) Oracle 1

Yep, map looks good to me.

I will be holding my action until I see what we are facing.


I've sent out several PMs, and but I've not been able to find a fifth player. People seem to feel that they are already too busy. Granted, I'm petitioning a lot of play-by-post veterans that are in multiple games and are content with them. I've also spoken with a few people I used to tabletop with, but they don't seem interested in play-by-post.

I'm really surprised it's been so tough to find a fifth. I'm not quite sure who else to ask at this point.


I can post in the recruitment thread or you can just continue with 4. The only issue at this point will be minimal healing during combat asKynrael will be acting more as a front line fighter.

I think it will work out with 4. If need be, I'll just place a couple of extra potions or scrolls to help out.


I'm not sure if these are vermin or not, but unfortunately, I think they might be immune to mind-affecting.


If so, that's what I get for rush posting at work.


Come to think of it, I don't think our party has any was of knowing. We lost Marana and her Knowledge (Nature). Crap, we really should get a ranger replacement!


I posted a quick add to see if we can get a fifth person fairly quickly.


Male Goblin Fighter (Archer) 1

We're not very good at this whole adventuring stuff are we?


Male Human Rogue (Scout) 1

Just a few misses and immunities. We're golden!

:)

Are we going in initiative order, or should we just post and resolve it in order? I'm curious what the beetles are going to do, but I'm likely to make a full-attack against the red scorpion again.
