Male Human Gamemaster

Well, Happy Birthday, Phillip, and all of your aliases.


Male Human Aegis 1

Thanks, and yeah, I've got several.


Male Human Gamemaster

During the night, several fireworks are seen from the direction of Eleder, just over the horizon. The pretty flashes of color make for a tantalizing reminder of the holidays.

Happy New Year, everyone!


Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Hey guys just want to give you a heads up that due to some stuff thats going on IRL I won't have internet at the house for about 6 months. I'm going to try my best to get on and post when ever I can but I can't guarantee anything right now...I'm at the mercy of the public library system.


Male Human Gamemaster

I've got a "working weekend" coming up, so I shall continue on Monday! Expect changes, now that you're finally through Day 1 on the Smuggler's Shiv!


Male Human Aegis 1

Well, we have not yet survived Night 1, so we'll see how that goes before hitting up Day 2. :P


Male Human Aegis 1

Is there going to be a post today?


GM Pace:

I have some bad news...
as of right now I have moved up back to Ohio and wont be back online until about 6 months because of this, I will be dropping out of your game...
Sorry it looks like i cant keep your promise sorry for everything...
Noel out.


Male Human Gamemaster

for Noel:

Noel, I'm sorry to hear about your difficulty. Good luck in Ohio, and look us up from time to time!

Folks, Noel has gone NPC due to moving away in RL. So I shall keep her and Tessara's characters "as is". Meaning, they're in a poison-induced coma and will not be able to wake up on their own without advanced medical assistance. Someone is going to have to give them daily nursing care. We should have enough players to keep going, as long as Varash, Ashana, Adriano, and Phillip keep posting. Souls for Smuggler's Shiv is kind to GMs this way: there are enough NPCs to keep the game running even if one or two PCs drop out.

I know the Christmas holidays were a real slow time, hopefully people didn't drop out of boredom. Things are picking back up, I promise!


Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Wow...I check yesterday there are like 2 new posts...and now this morning there are 25...

As I mentioned before I don't have internet at home so I'm only going to be able to get on once per day so...I'll try to keep up but I make no promises.


Male Human Gamemaster

I think I'll either try to slow down to one round of fighting per day or one long discussion per day. Phillip appears able to post 5-8 times a day, so I got carried away. :)

Varash, are you still here? I've been leaving you out, unlike Shevan. I'm about ready to make him a NPC.


Male Human Aegis 1

Yeah, sorry about that. I'm currently unemployed and homebound, so I can post pretty much any time.


Male Human Gamemaster

I hear you. I'm underemployed and if it's raining I can't work outside as well.


Male Human Gamemaster

I haven't seen skill rolls this bad since my "Year of Ones" back in 2001 with my RL gaming table. Don't let the mast get a Nat 20 against you, Adriano. If you fail by more than 5, you take 1d6 falling damage.


Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

So what was the difficulty there. I am sensing 1d6 of Damage for this guy, yup.

I am having this bad of rolls in my RL games as well.


Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Its a DC 5 I think...so to miss by five you'd have to get a 0 result.


Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

Ok sweet so I made it


Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Has anyone else noticed this dice roller being rather...touchy lately? At least I finally noticed something other than my shoes lol.


Male Human Gamemaster

C'mon folks, don't be shy, get in there - I can't use Sasha to prod you all the time...


Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

But I like being proded by Sasha


Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Just an FYI guys I'm going to be with out a car until tomorrow at the earliest and possibly longer so I won't be able to get online. Need to get some break work done. Feel free to role play as you wish and I'll get back as soon as I can.


Male Human Gamemaster

So that's the reason you left so quickly. :) Good luck!


Male Human Gamemaster

Since we're getting out of order, let me ask everyone to do all their actions, as well as the free action to speak, on their initiative turn. Just so we're not jumping in front of each other.


Male Human Aegis 1

Something I found out: Ability score applies a penalty for every -2, instead of decreasing the actual score. This means that once Phillip slept through the night, the penalty went away, even though he's still got a -1 Con Penalty. Ability Damage Rules

Just something strange I found that I didn't know was changed from 3.5 to PF.


Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Hey guys I'm back. Just wanted to let you know. Don't want to post yet in character since it isn't my turn.


Male Human Gamemaster

Pazio's boards just ate my post! Argh. Save, and save often. Now I'll have to try again...


Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

I HATE when that happens.

I also hate when I'm writing out combat sceens and I accidently close the window or navagate away from the page... an hours worth of work getting deleted is annoying to say the least.


Male Human Gamemaster

Sorry for the slow posts. I managed to get rid of some sinus pressure headaches by upping my magnesium, only to catch a sinus infection this last weekend. It's not fun when your head wracks with pain like you've been in a car accident at the slightest turn.


Male Human Gamemaster

Ouch, Phillip. You roll the dice and you takes your chances.

Anybody else want to try for the daily morale pep talk to the NPCs? Everybody can get one chance, or assist another with the die roll. I'm going by the book here.

Each NPC is going to have a daily "Attitude and Morale" roll. Ashana has managed to pull one NPC out of the proverbial fire. Phillip didn't do so well. It's just once a day, but there are some long-term consequences eventually.

Sinus headache is fading...finally. Must be all the fruit tree pollen I was inhaling at the beginning of the week while I was trimming back the pear and peach trees. I still have the apple trees to top off at 13 feet, bummer.


Male Human Gamemaster

Did Adriano roll? I think Pazio ate the post, I can only see Phillip's reaction to it.


Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

Yeah I rolled but I didn't realize his conversation was away from camp.


Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

Question what time of day is it?


Male Human Aegis 1

I believe it is morning.


Male Human Gamemaster

Morning of Day 2, as I'm counting.


Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

If it is Morning then it is the perfect time to go and get a Pterodactyl for the fiery redhead :D


Male Human Gamemaster

Is it bad for me to be waiting for Adriano to be making yet another DC 15 Climb check, when he's been 0-for-4? I mean, at this point Adriano should just get a Ring of Feather Fall and call it a day. :)


Male Human Gamemaster

Waiting on Ashana to roll initiative! I'd like to give her a chance first.


Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Sorry been out of town...was a unplanned trip or I would have notified...


Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

FYI this week I am going to be in Michigan for Training and I am not going to have internet during the day.


Male Human Gamemaster

Not a problem. I was hoping to keep the once-a-day posting, but due to circumstances worthy of a 1980s situational comedy, I'm limited to every 2 days or 3 days posting. But the game will continue!


Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Hey guys sorry I haven't posted in a few days. Girlfriend and her parents came into town on Thursday and her dad ended up passing away while they were here so...its been a rough couple of days and haven't had time to get online.


Male Human Gamemaster

GM progress report:

Noel & Tessara are still in a coma; I plan on leaving them "open" to a new player or as an additional burden to you guys on the island. "The Sleeping Death" was actually quite common for people who could not overcome diseases or injury in the past. I will allow for someone to NPC them, but Noel's character class of Dragonrider is very complex and hard to play side-by-side with a normal PC.

Gelik, Jask, and Ishirou have improved their Morale; Aeyrs could use some non-judgmental help. Sasha has almost completed her in-character quest for Souls for Smuggler's Shiv, and has a surprise for the players after the egg hatches successfully. Remember, if you want to affect a NPC's Attitude or Morale, you need to do a Diplomacy check first thing in the morning, and yes, you can assist on a Diplomacy check. So far only Adriano and Ishirou have interacted on the morning of Day Three.

Sasha can't go exploring with an egg about to hatch, so as GM I'm offering to NPC another character to give you four explorers. Everyone appears to be kicking butt on the random encounters, so I'm not too worried on who you pick - Shevan, Varash, even Gelik. Ishirou's Morale is too low for him to leave the camp, Aeyrs would be a hindrance, Jask is stuck taking care of Noel and Tessara and has a reason for you to search for shipwrecks.

You're doing better than expected on Day Three, but there's still a long ways to go.


Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

Can I only make one roll per day or one roll per person.


Male Human Gamemaster

The book says Morale is once per day, but Attitude appears to be unrestricted. For the sake of sanity I'll rule that everyone can make one Diplomacy check per NPC daily. Each NPC has a "hidden past", much like Sasha and her desire to raise a pet from one of the dangerous creatures on the island. Or Jask's need to find info on his arrest to redeem himself. Once you find and complete that quest, Attitude and Morale becomes much easier for the NPC. You've shown that you care about them and given them hope, in that regard.

Special events (bwah-hah-ha) can change a NPC's Attitude and/or Morale negatively, so tread carefully there.


Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

Ok well I will talk to Jask and Gelik and see if we can improve attitude.


Male Human Gamemaster

A vermin swarm doesn't faze you guys but four skinny skeletons manage to hit you? And here I thought Adriano would just blow the undead away.


Male Human Aegis 1

I didn't realize you were house-ruling crits on undead. It's changed since 3.5. Now, the only things you can't crit are elementals, most plants, oozes, swarms, and incorporeal undead, at least, without a ghost touch weapon.

Relevant undead info

Edit: Also, that hit on me didn't actually hit. It would've hit me without my Astral Skin, but my AC goes up to 18 with it up. I've edited my profile to show Astral Skin mods to stats.


Male Human Gamemaster

Ah. Needed info. Note I didn't say "take damage", so you can correct me on temporary AC and such.

I do seem to recall crits changing. I'm using the PRD for look-ups, and "undead traits" under "Skeletons" didn't have a blaring correction.

Have to give ghosts next time...

Edit: Not at risk of death from massive damage, but is immediately destroyed when reduced to 0 hit points.

Which means the one attacking Ashana before it crumbled would have crumbled first. I'll make a note of that in the Game thread.


Male Human Gamemaster

C'mon, folks, don't dither. Somebody make a decision. It's either the monsters up top or the monsters in the dark hold. Take your pick. :)


Male Human Gamemaster

Ashana is up, then Adriano!

I thought you guys would be happy to get to the combat.
