Yeah, seems like a bit of normalcy has returned finally.

Hopefully we can get back on track soon. I'm bed-ridden for the next few days and have lots of time to post. :P

Hope you recover quickly from whatever laid you out, Totek.


Male Human Ranger (Skirmisher, Guide) 1 / AC 16, TAC 13, FFAC 13 / HP 13/13 / Fort +4, Ref +5, Will +1 / Init. +3 / Perc. +4

Heh, me too. I don't even know what it is exactly, or for how long I'll be down.

The only thing I learned from my trip to the ER this weekend was that I contracted some sort of virus, which caused vasculitis, meaning my blood vessels began to swell, leak fluid and cause all sorts of havoc on my body.

It's pretty nuts.

Anyone having issues with Sandy? All we have here (Greater Chicago area) is wind.


F Human Shoanti [AC: 19/12 tch/18 ff; HP 32/32; Frt +5, Ref +2, Will +7; Init +1; Perc +10] Cleric 4

Good down here in Alabama.


Male Human Monk-2 (HP: 19/19; AC 16, 16t, 13ff; F+5,R+5,W+6)

Temperature dropped here in East TN (Good thing overall), we got rain, and may get more, but so far so good. Mountains are a good filter.


Male Human Ranger (Skirmisher, Guide) 1 / AC 16, TAC 13, FFAC 13 / HP 13/13 / Fort +4, Ref +5, Will +1 / Init. +3 / Perc. +4

I hope everything is okay with Idyll.


Male Halfling Archaeologist Bard9/Mysterious Stranger Gunslinger1 HP 64/64| AC 25| T 16| FF 21| CMD 14| Fort +9| Ref +15| Will +10 (+2 vs. fear, neg energy effects)| Init +4| Perc +20/+25w/lens| Sense Motive +1

+1

Maybe I shouldn't apply to RotRL campaigns any more; the last one, the GM disappeared after having appendicitis, and the one before that the GM (who had picked it up when the *original* GM vanished) had to bail when he lost his internet access.


Male Human Ranger (Skirmisher, Guide) 1 / AC 16, TAC 13, FFAC 13 / HP 13/13 / Fort +4, Ref +5, Will +1 / Init. +3 / Perc. +4

Hmm.

Well, if we don't hear back from Idyll, or he decides to scrap the game... I own RotRL:AE, and I've been wanting to give running a PbP a shot. I've played a bit, but never ran one. So, instead of just abandoning ship, I could try and pick it up and run with it.

Just an option. Hopefully everything will be good with Idyll and we'll be able to resume once he's back.


Male Halfling Archaeologist Bard9/Mysterious Stranger Gunslinger1 HP 64/64| AC 25| T 16| FF 21| CMD 14| Fort +9| Ref +15| Will +10 (+2 vs. fear, neg energy effects)| Init +4| Perc +20/+25w/lens| Sense Motive +1

Thanks, and I also hope it doesn't come to that; I've been favorably impressed with GM Idyll so far. (If it does, let me know if you need any hints. I've been running a Kingmaker PbP for over a year that I picked up under similar circumstances.)


F Human Shoanti [AC: 19/12 tch/18 ff; HP 32/32; Frt +5, Ref +2, Will +7; Init +1; Perc +10] Cleric 4

I think he will be back. But only time will tell.


Male Halfling Archaeologist Bard9/Mysterious Stranger Gunslinger1 HP 64/64| AC 25| T 16| FF 21| CMD 14| Fort +9| Ref +15| Will +10 (+2 vs. fear, neg energy effects)| Init +4| Perc +20/+25w/lens| Sense Motive +1

I'll be at a con this weekend and the hotel charges for internet access. I'll try to keep up using my phone, so I'll know if/when the GM resurfaces.


F Human Shoanti [AC: 19/12 tch/18 ff; HP 32/32; Frt +5, Ref +2, Will +7; Init +1; Perc +10] Cleric 4

Jealous. What con?


Male Halfling Archaeologist Bard9/Mysterious Stranger Gunslinger1 HP 64/64| AC 25| T 16| FF 21| CMD 14| Fort +9| Ref +15| Will +10 (+2 vs. fear, neg energy effects)| Init +4| Perc +20/+25w/lens| Sense Motive +1

Windycon, mainly SF but Steve Jackson is the Gaming GoH. He's apparently going to be running sessions with the new Ogre game.


F Human Shoanti [AC: 19/12 tch/18 ff; HP 32/32; Frt +5, Ref +2, Will +7; Init +1; Perc +10] Cleric 4

He is coming to Mid South Con too. I have been to that one once and might go again.


Male Halfling Archaeologist Bard9/Mysterious Stranger Gunslinger1 HP 64/64| AC 25| T 16| FF 21| CMD 14| Fort +9| Ref +15| Will +10 (+2 vs. fear, neg energy effects)| Init +4| Perc +20/+25w/lens| Sense Motive +1

OK, it's been about 2 1/2 weeks since the last GM post. Totek offered to pick it up if GM Idyll didn't come back, and I'm willing to take him up on that. Comments?


Male Human Monk-2 (HP: 19/19; AC 16, 16t, 13ff; F+5,R+5,W+6)

With the holidays coming up, I maybe slowing down, but I'd like to continue if possible.


Male Human Ranger (Skirmisher, Guide) 1 / AC 16, TAC 13, FFAC 13 / HP 13/13 / Fort +4, Ref +5, Will +1 / Init. +3 / Perc. +4

If you guys want me to, I would be more than happy to try. I'm an experienced GM, but new to running PbP's, so things might be a little slow going initially as I figure out how to set up stuff like combat maps and what-not. But everything else is no problem - I've been running a Carrion Crown home game for over a year, so adventure paths are no stranger to me.


F Human Shoanti [AC: 19/12 tch/18 ff; HP 32/32; Frt +5, Ref +2, Will +7; Init +1; Perc +10] Cleric 4

I am game. I am not totally giving up on Idle, but I have been here before with him. I believe its the common case of good intentions and too many commitments.


Male Halfling Archaeologist Bard9/Mysterious Stranger Gunslinger1 HP 64/64| AC 25| T 16| FF 21| CMD 14| Fort +9| Ref +15| Will +10 (+2 vs. fear, neg energy effects)| Init +4| Perc +20/+25w/lens| Sense Motive +1

Thank you again for offering to pick this up, Totek. Re maps, I've had good luck using spreadsheets from Google Docs (or Google Drive, I think they're calling it these days). An example is HERE. You shrink the column width to match the row height to give something like graph paper, use the text background color to make terrain, and letters to identify characters and such. Some of the GMs I play under use Maptools or something similar, but I can't do that from work--I don't have admin privileges on my machine and can't install things like Maptools.

I've also had some experience picking up a game after the GM vanished. What I did for the first few months was play my character as a DMPC, then recruit a replacement when we hit a reasonable break point; I don't know how you want to handle that, though. I'm sure you'd have no trouble finding someone to play a fighter in RotRL....


Male Human Ranger (Skirmisher, Guide) 1 / AC 16, TAC 13, FFAC 13 / HP 13/13 / Fort +4, Ref +5, Will +1 / Init. +3 / Perc. +4

Neat! I've seen some people use Google Spreadsheets in conjunction with actual flip-map images to create terrain. That idea works really well too. Thanks!

If I pick up the game, it will likely take me a week or two of preparation and getting the hang of creating maps before things move again. I hope that's okay with everyone. I'll keep you all updated with progress and hopefully I can have a timetable of when we'll start again soon.

Also, I should probably create an entirely new game, yes? Since all of the GM privileges are currently set under Idyll. Or, I can see if customer service can give ownership to me instead. What would you recommend?

There are instructions on changing campaign ownership at the top of the Paizo Online Campaigns page HERE. (I guess this sort of thing happens fairly often....) Not sure if they can change the name, though.


Male Halfling Archaeologist Bard9/Mysterious Stranger Gunslinger1 HP 64/64| AC 25| T 16| FF 21| CMD 14| Fort +9| Ref +15| Will +10 (+2 vs. fear, neg energy effects)| Init +4| Perc +20/+25w/lens| Sense Motive +1

I see they can indeed change the name. Take your time getting ready, GM S, especially since I think we're just before starting the fight.


That was fast! Looks like everything transferred over successfully.

Thankfully, I have the entire week off next week. So I will have plenty of time to prepare, get the hang of the maps, and recruit. I am going to shoot for a starting time somewhere during the week after Thanksgiving. I know that's a little vague, but I'll have a clearer idea during the next week.

Also, is everyone else still in? If people want to bail, or even make changes to their characters, it's no problem. Just let me know before we move on.

And remember, this is my first endeavor into actually RUNNING a PbP, so I apologize in advance for the extra patience that might be required. :)

I think I'm going to take you up on that and tweak Bert a little, now that I know I'm working towards an archer bard build.


F Human Shoanti [AC: 19/12 tch/18 ff; HP 32/32; Frt +5, Ref +2, Will +7; Init +1; Perc +10] Cleric 4

I am in. And I am hoping to learn as you do. I am a long time DM but also have never run a PBP and want to learn how to use Maptools, etc.

Thanks for stepping up. Looking forward to the game.

My character is good, unless you want to change some of the character creation rules. :)


Is there anything in particular you wanted for Cadas? I was planning on sticking with a fairly close outline, since it's pretty close to what I normally allow anyway.


Male Human Monk-2 (HP: 19/19; AC 16, 16t, 13ff; F+5,R+5,W+6)

I'm in, and happy with my character as is unless there are changes you want me to make.


F Human Shoanti [AC: 19/12 tch/18 ff; HP 32/32; Frt +5, Ref +2, Will +7; Init +1; Perc +10] Cleric 4

No, I'm good. She will eventually take Versatile channeling and be able to "swing" both ways, cause that's how Gozreh plays. :)


I'm glad everyone is still on board. :)

What do you guys think about opening the game up to five players over four? Would you prefer to keep it as it is? I know sometimes I like to run five players, as it gives a little more freedom for character creation and such, but since most of the group is already locked in, it shouldn't matter. Just wanted to throw the idea out there.


F Human Shoanti [AC: 19/12 tch/18 ff; HP 32/32; Frt +5, Ref +2, Will +7; Init +1; Perc +10] Cleric 4

I am good either way. I would normally say 5 or even 6, but was looking forward to running this one with 4 this time for some reason. 5 gives better balance of skills I think.

Bottom line is I am good either way. Why don't you recruit and see if you get only one, or you get two outstanding candidates. No reason why you can't let the candidates help you decide.


Male Halfling Archaeologist Bard9/Mysterious Stranger Gunslinger1 HP 64/64| AC 25| T 16| FF 21| CMD 14| Fort +9| Ref +15| Will +10 (+2 vs. fear, neg energy effects)| Init +4| Perc +20/+25w/lens| Sense Motive +1

Good points. Even though I've heard RotRL is a pretty dangerous AP, I was also kind of looking forward to the challenge. OTOH, having another primary combatant over and above Totek's replacement would be a great help through the fights I know about. (In the one abortive game I played in, we made it through the Glassworks and points below, and were about to start a fight near Thistletop when the GM lost his home internet access. I'll keep my mouth shut wrt any spoilers, but there weren't a lot of major plot points we'd run afoul of by then.)

tl;dr-What Cadas said.


F Human Shoanti [AC: 19/12 tch/18 ff; HP 32/32; Frt +5, Ref +2, Will +7; Init +1; Perc +10] Cleric 4

We have arcane, divine and "archaeology"covered. :) We obviously need a melee fighter/tank and maybe someone to help cut the enemy down. That role could be filled with a ranged fighter or another melee and could be any number of things that normally put out a lot of damage. Of course a low level classes like Magus and Inquisitor are not too impressive yet.


Well, with Bert going Archer Bard, I think he's filled a pretty great combination of skills and damage. Seriously, archer Bard is crazy awesome.

I think with a solid melee person, I'd be down to run 4. Just wanted to see what you guys thought.


F Human Shoanti [AC: 19/12 tch/18 ff; HP 32/32; Frt +5, Ref +2, Will +7; Init +1; Perc +10] Cleric 4

Always good to have Paladin Smite, or Inquisitor Bane, or Magus whatever they do, huge damage bonus things. :)


Male Halfling Archaeologist Bard9/Mysterious Stranger Gunslinger1 HP 64/64| AC 25| T 16| FF 21| CMD 14| Fort +9| Ref +15| Will +10 (+2 vs. fear, neg energy effects)| Init +4| Perc +20/+25w/lens| Sense Motive +1

I don't know; for damage output a TWF ranger with favored enemy: humanoid (giant) could have a lot of fun with this AP. In general a ranger would work well. Even if we get a straight fighter, I'd recommend s/he max ranks in Survival--having a tracker is never a bad thing, and Bert doesn't have a spare rogue talent to take Follow Clues anytime soon.

IMHO, the downside of relying on smite/bane/magus spells for damage output in RotRL is the encounter tempo. I don't think we can justify a 15 minute adventuring day, so no going nova on anything but the hairiest encounters.


Yeah, which is exactly why I went with a TWF Ranger with Favored Enemy (Giant). :P


F Human Shoanti [AC: 19/12 tch/18 ff; HP 32/32; Frt +5, Ref +2, Will +7; Init +1; Perc +10] Cleric 4

So go replace yourself. :)


Male Human Monk-2 (HP: 19/19; AC 16, 16t, 13ff; F+5,R+5,W+6)

Heh. I think a melee type would be fine. I don't really so much care what kind as long as it is a team player :)


Alright, I've settled on replacements! I ended up choosing two after all, mostly because I really loved both characters and felt they both could contribute in unique ways to the party.

So, welcome Barek Hisdren and Mirela Malvo!

I've got a bit more work to do, but things are moving along pretty quickly. I may have the game up and running again by tonight or tomorrow. In the meantime, I posted a bunch of information on the Campaign Info tab for your viewing pleasure.


Male Human Monk-2 (HP: 19/19; AC 16, 16t, 13ff; F+5,R+5,W+6)

Welcome aboard, Barek and Mirela


F Human Shoanti [AC: 19/12 tch/18 ff; HP 32/32; Frt +5, Ref +2, Will +7; Init +1; Perc +10] Cleric 4

Gtatz you two. Welcome to the team.


M Human Fighter (Brawler) 3 / MOMS 1 | HP 34/34 | AC 19 T 12 FF 17 | F +6 R +5 W +4 (+2 vs. Sleep, Paralysis, Stun)| Init +2 | Perc +4, SM +4

Woo Hoo!

Hello everyone. Glad to be here!


F Human Rogue (Acrobat) 4 | AC 17 T 14 FF 13 | HP 16/28 | F +3, R +8, W +2 | Init +5 | Perc. +7

Evening all, just wanted to say thanks and looking forward to some PbP with you fine folks!


Glad you both could make it. I'm working on a big post right now to incorporate you two into the festivities thus far.

Whenever you get a chance, could you add your stats to your name like the others have? Race, Class, AC, HP, Saves, Initiative, and Perception. Thanks!


And, we're back. :D


Male Halfling Archaeologist Bard9/Mysterious Stranger Gunslinger1 HP 64/64| AC 25| T 16| FF 21| CMD 14| Fort +9| Ref +15| Will +10 (+2 vs. fear, neg energy effects)| Init +4| Perc +20/+25w/lens| Sense Motive +1

Sorry I haven't posted today; we had a little fire at work last night, and I've been running and jumping dealing with the aftermath today. At least no one was hurt.


Yikes! Glad everyone was okay! And no worries, we just got things up off the ground again. I didn't expect everyone to be back in posting mode just yet. :)


*sigh*

So for the last two days, I've had absolutely zero luck getting the map for the Swallowtail Festival digitally. Paizo has recently started making it so you can't even select and copy images/maps from many PDFs, so I can't even use the PDF for the flip-map that came out recently. :(

I'll see if I can find any other easy solution. It's such a great map, and I'd love to use it.


F Human Rogue (Acrobat) 4 | AC 17 T 14 FF 13 | HP 16/28 | F +3, R +8, W +2 | Init +5 | Perc. +7

I think I might have a map you can use... I downloaded it when I was considering running an AP myself sometime back before time became a problem. I'll see if I can dig it up.
