GM Brayden's PFS First Steps (Group 2): To Delve the Dungeon Deep (Inactive)

Game Master Brayden Green

Everyone,

We lost power here yesterday due to some storms that rolled through. Parts of the area still do not have power. I am just getting back online today and should have time to post once I am done with work tonight.

While we're on the subject I'm on vacation until Monday....I'll definitely be able to post 2x a day if warranted (first thing in the morning and just before bed.) I'll also check in as often as I can on my phone and post as need be during the day; though my posts may be short & sweet.

I'm in Portland, Oregon if anyone's interested. Spent some time in the city yesterday doing some sight-seeing and sampling the concoctions in a few brewpubs. Drove out to the coast today & will do some hiking tomorrow.


Speaking of vacations...I will be leaving town on Sunday and returning Tuesday evening. I will not have Internet since we are camping in the Great Smokey Mountains. Brayden feel free to do what ever you need with Bander during this period.

And more on vacations... I'll be on vacation at Lake Tahoe, from tonight till next friday (the 12th). Supposedly there will be internet and I am bringing my laptop, but I'm sure my posting will be sparse at best. Please bot Amnur as need.

haha. I have the inlaws in this weekend, so - like a partial majority of the group, I will be in and out, with "let's go get ice cream and pizza!" type breaks in the middle.

Also, one more thing I wanted to "discuss"

Many of you are using your 2 PP to cash in for a wand of cure light. I am completely fine with that. One thing I want you to think about...

750 gold is 30 years' salary of an untrained laborer. So this is a very uncommonly expensive item that you are stumbling upon in your young career.

I would like you to think, if your character doesn't have UseMagicDevice, if he is of the disposition (and/or intelligence) to spend 30 years' salary on something that he is just going to hand off to a random stranger, who may or may not be around to give it back to him/her at the offset of the game.

If he/she would, then I have no problem with you proceeding as such.

[ooc]IN FULL DISCLOSURE, I really can't tell you *how* to spend it anyways... Your money is your own... Just trying to lend a "third party, outside of the picture" type view of the scenario.

I think that this is a product of pbp play.

We're going to be playing with the same group for a long time, not (theoretically) changing teams every week like normal PFS play.

We will also take a long time to level.

As such, planning for the short-term is probably far more important than plotting ahead. I might, in a tabletop game, choose feats that open-up other feats, plan for prestige classes and not worry about being fully useful at level 1. In a pbp game I'm not going to do that.

It took two months (I think) to finish In Service to Lore (4 hours of tabletop play).

I also think the nature of Paizo pbp means we're far more likely to stick together as a group, meaning that we can share resources more like a home game than a PFS event.

I could be wrong, that's just my perspective.

My thought is...you bring your own healing to the table. Especially at lower levels when channels and spells per day can be few and far between; I'd much rather hand a wand off to a caster than ask him or her to waste their resources if I should happen to fall into the fire.

In character I can justify buying one as sage advice from a veteran Pathfinder I met during my training.

Baby is coming (3 weeks early). I'll see you all on the other side of this. My wife is doing well, and the baby is actually coming very slow, which is good. My poor wife has been having contractions every 3 or 4 minutes since saturday.

So, needless to say, I am going to be VERY hit and miss this week, until we figure out the whole "is the baby coming today or not" thing.

(and by contractions, they haven't been strong ones, she mostly feels sick. Still a bummer though...)

oooh... how exciting... a new baby in the family. Is this your first? You know they could be Braxton-Hicks contractions too, which means you've still got time to wait... or they could be the real thing... lol... either way - I hope all goes well.

We'll wait til you have time and energy to be here for us. Babies take a lot of both, yanno. :)

better warm up those dice.. fort save vs awake baby at zero-dark-thirty to sleep through it :)

Prayers out that all goes well for both mom and baby.

Two most joyous days of my life.. watching the birth of my son..then five years later watching my daughter be born.

Ok I am back from my vacation to the mountains...and now the GM up and has a baby :) Congrats and I hope all is going well.

I will get caught up in game tonight.

No baby yet. It is in a hurry to get here, and then starts taking it's sweet time, haha. But everyday that the baby stays in longer is a good day...

So, on with the gaming, until I get the "All go."

bah.. when my first child was borne, I was out until 0130 the night before playing a tabletop (modern micro armor) with friends.. Got woke up 4 hours later with 'It's time to go to the hospital' :) Then the kid decided to wait until 1630 to pop out of the hatch and say hi.. *mutter* That was a long but joyous day :)

I just have dogs. They're already at least 8 weeks old before they move in & a quick visit to the vet makes sure that they'll never reproduce!

there is no joy like watching your child be born :) Well.. from a guy's standpoint anyways. Ladies may have a differing opinion. :)


My wife had c sections with both of ours...so kind of a different experience. Though I did get to see my wife cut open...kind of disturbing and yet interesting at the time. And then from behind the curtain there was a baby.

lol... when I had my one (yes only one) I had a C-section... my husband wouldn't even look behind the curtain - he just waited for the baby LOL... what a wimp! still it was a cool experience.


By the way Brayden, Bander is going to need to go shopping for a few things if he is going to be any use on this adventure with the undead. Not sure how to handle that...

That's okay - Shi and Lore are going shopping too - maybe we can all go together?


Well Bander will definitely tag along...need a few things since my witch power will be essentially useless.

Very cool B! I'm excited for your baby to get here. Probly not as excited/nervous as you. I'm sure all will go splendidly! Watching a C-section was awesome, in a gross-innards&baby-being-removed-from-my-wife sort of way.


Male **Smuggler's Shiv Hex Map** Mad Scientest - Level Absolute **Smuggler's Shiv Editable Map**

No baby yet. very close to getting back in the normal swing of things. Wife is off of her feet and feeling much better lately - so who knows?

As far as actually getting back to the story, yesterday and today I am in the process of turning the office into the baby room and moving the office downstairs, since apparently it is getting near the time to do that, lol.

As far as when the baby comes... As long as my wife is healthy, I couldn't care less when it actually comes. If the baby is in better health when it is born too, then I'll take that too! But the wife being healthy and moderately happy, is the major thing.

Hey everyone, just checking in.

THe office has been almost nearly converted to baby room, and the office is now officially downstairs. I don't have much time to go into story mode, as I am just popping on and saying that we have no word yet.

Though with things almost getting done around here in preparation for the baby, I am almost back in to story mode :)

Wife is doing much better, though she has constant contractions.

I think she might do this for another week at least. Yesterday was the 36 week mark, so anything after this is just gravy now.

*hands Brayden a Rum and Coke* Here..drink this.. it'll help :) hah!

Wife and child first.. game's only a hobby.. we'll be here when you're able to return :)

Long ride on a gravel road in a pre-90's pick up (before they smoothed out the ride).. baby will be here in no time ;)

I've got a quick time-saver for the group.

A lot of us are putting rolls in [ ooc]

Like this
[ ooc]perception [ dice]1d20+4[ /dice][ /ooc]

minus the extra spaces, naturally

but you can just do this

[ dice=perception]1d20+4[ /dice]

and it looks like this:
perception: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (18) + 4 = 22

ty - i was wondering that myself... good to know!

Silver Crusade

Female Elf Wizard (Conjurer) 4 [hp22, AC12, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +6, Init +2, Perception +8]

Brayden: if she has been bitten by a ghoul then I (metagame knowledge) know she needs to make 2 consecutive saves to resist the disease.
Is there any way that Mylvwara might know that she needs to resist the disease, or that we might be able to help her?


Male **Smuggler's Shiv Hex Map** Mad Scientest - Level Absolute **Smuggler's Shiv Editable Map**

She is alternating in between looking ghoulish and human. But since seeing the Society logo she has been more human than anything.

To know that you would either need a know religion, or I would also accept like a "profession: healer" or something like that. I would also accept a know nature. In fact, I will let you do a heal check (trained or otherwise) to see the status of her body, as far as what has changed and what stays the same. And of course a perception would also do the trick of seeing how "morphed" she has become.

Basically just give a half a dozen rolls, lol.

This is an important part of the game, even early on, so I don't mind giving you all the info to put your character "there" in the setting. I'm not one of those GMs that likes to keep his chars in total darkness and secret. Only a little :)


Male **Smuggler's Shiv Hex Map** Mad Scientest - Level Absolute **Smuggler's Shiv Editable Map**

I guess to answer you more clearly, you wouldn't know that you get two tries, obviously. You would know that the disease can be resisted, but whether or not it actually is being resisted is something that you would need those rolls for.

Make sense?

Silver Crusade

Female Elf Wizard (Conjurer) 4 [hp22, AC12, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +6, Init +2, Perception +8]

Yep, definitely.

I have the wrong knowledge (arcana, history, planes) for this subject but I can try perception and an untrained heal.


I have nature but already rolled once...with a 24 and only got basic info. Should I roll again to see if I get more or was it the usual one try and that was it?

+


Male **Smuggler's Shiv Hex Map** Mad Scientest - Level Absolute **Smuggler's Shiv Editable Map**

The stage of her transformation is more of a a religion or a heal thing so I'm not sure that another nature check would even help you out in that regard

Guys, just an update; I've been swamped at work the last few days and been struggling to keep my head above water there. I hope you can all be patient with me while I get that crud worked out. I'll get in as soon as I can and get posting again. Thanks for being patient! Or at least not acting impatient! :)

Guys, it has been very busy the past two days at work. I have been working long hours to get ready to be out for a week. I am having a medical procedure today and not sure if I will be on again today. But I will be off of work for the next week healing up without much to do so starting tomorrow I should be available for a lot more posting.

So my apologizes for not posting in the past two days but if I get past today I should be good for a bit.

Ok, I know the ladies are dying to know so I'll ask..

How's the baby and mom doing? You know they'll want stats.. height, weight, str, chr, dex..

For us guys.. where's the ceegars? :)

On a serious note.. hope mom and baby are well. Sleep while you can.. it'll be a long time before you get more ;)


Male Husband/1(epic years), Father/2, Grandfather/2

Congrats!!!!

From a new grandfather, str=1, dex=1, cha=20.....

And yea, get lots of sleep. My daughter's facebook page yesterday was about how getting sleep is suddenly a very important part of her life, and her less than 1 month old finally sleep for 3 straight hours the night before !!

Male **Smuggler's Shiv Hex Map** Mad Scientest - Level Absolute **Smuggler's Shiv Editable Map**

We had our baby! Baby Boy - 7 pounds 6 oz. Mama and baby should be coming home tomorrow if everything goes well.

Baby spent some time in the NICU with labored breathing, but after multiple tests everything came back negative, and so he got a taste of a Cpap machine to force his breathing to be routine. (He really, really didn't like that.)

He got off the machine today and started eating. He might be released as early as tomorrow.

I'll be back on mid week or so once momma and baby are back home safe and sound.
