GM Zimmer's Curse of the Crimson Throne (Inactive)

Game Master zimmerwald1915

The king is dead! In the Varisian port city of Korvosa, the death of a monarch leads to chaos. It's up to a band of bold adventurers to stop the spread of tyranny before all of Korvosa is crushed beneath the queen's iron fist.

When we get out of the Old Fishery, would you guys prefer mapless battles?


M Human (Varisian) M Human Ranger LE L2 | AC17 T13 FF14 | HP 21/21| F +4 R+7 W+2 | Init+3 | Perc+7

I can go either way. I'm actually used to miniatures and maps, and with some of the combat options like AoOs, they are more necessary than they were in say AD&D. I'm really just getting the hang of doing this PbP, and trying to remember everything I need to put to paper. At least now I've basically gotten past forgetting to switch to the right alias before I post.

I prefer the tactical artistry of mapped battles.

Also, I believe the edit and focus options are broken now.


Male Human Inquisitor 2 (sin eater)

I prefer with maps. In face to face games I do OK without them, but in PbP .. days are lost through confusion.


Male Chelaxian Void Wizard 5

There's some confusion attached to where and how things are happening in the mapped battles. But Theron is right: those problems are only magnified when we don't have a reference to which to refer. Maintain the maps!

Unless they're too much work of course.


Hey has anyone heard word from GM Squawk?


Male Chelaxian Void Wizard 5

Not as such, no. Squawk, you out there, man? Everything alright?


I have a question for you guys while we wait for Squawk to return (Hope all's well over there buddy). I sketched a pic of Raseri, and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a pic of their character. I'm out of practice, so these may not be that good, but they'd be more cleaned up than Raseri's. Let me know if you're interested.


Male Chelaxian Void Wizard 5

I'm interested...but only if Tristain's portrait has him drawing a portrait of himself drawing a portrait of himself drawing a portrait of himself, etc.


Male Filipino Gamemaster 10/Artist (Starving Artist) 10

Sorry. I had only realized that my post last thursday did not arrive just now. Anywasy, I have been out of town on business duties as a last minute call-in. I'll be back by monday and we can continue then.

I hope to bring you guys through book 1, and hopefully through all the others as well.

Ooh. a DA. I'ma watch. -Coffeegoblet-

Uh, I dunno if my meager skills are up to that.

EDIT: Anyway can I get a description of Fredo? I couldn't find one on his profile.

Cool, I'm glad you're okay. I'm going to be trying this with a group here in Alabama with Jade Reagent.

I'm also taking a look at your stuff, I'm liking what I've seen so far.

Turns out I only posted it in the recruitment thread. I'll paste a copy into my profile since that's easier.


Alrighty then, I'll try and have something done tomorrow.


M Human (Varisian) M Human Ranger LE L2 | AC17 T13 FF14 | HP 21/21| F +4 R+7 W+2 | Init+3 | Perc+7

Is it the taskmaster's normal turn now?


Male Filipino Gamemaster 10/Artist (Starving Artist) 10

sorry once again and thanks.


No problem.


Male Filipino Gamemaster 10/Artist (Starving Artist) 10

Ok. I need to stop lying to myself. It's quite obvious that my mind is elsewhere. This game is taking much longer than it should, and that says a lot for a PbP. I have completely underestimated both the effort it would take to hold a non-homebrew PbP, and the amount of work that piles within the months of February and March. I thought that other than the time it would take to play, it would just need a bit more reading. That was a horrid mistake.

I really hate to do this, as it is excruciatingly early in the game and because it makes me feel hopeless. But I believe the right course of action would to be to transfer this campaign to a new GM. Maybe even ask him or her to start anew as it's still the second encounter. I don't want to end this group as the characters you have created are really great and compliment each other so much.

I will open up a GM recruitment tomorrow if you guys still want to continue and if you do not have suggestions for a new GM.

Thanks for the honesty GM Squawk.


Male Chelaxian Void Wizard 5

Do what you gotta do.


M Human (Varisian) M Human Ranger LE L2 | AC17 T13 FF14 | HP 21/21| F +4 R+7 W+2 | Init+3 | Perc+7

I'm ok with that. Thanks for running it so far, and thanks for your honesty.


Sad to see you go. Here's hoping that You'll still be playing. Thanks for running it this far.

Don't suppose you want to take over, do you, Fredo?


Male Chelaxian Void Wizard 5

I could do that, on either a temporary or a permanent basis. If I do, would you want me to retire as a PC?

I think the chances of us finding a replacement GM are next to nil.

As for your PC, you'd be running the show and whatever you wanted to do with him is fine.

We could continue with 4 or you could bring in a friend or ask us to help find a replacement. (I have a wonderful PFS coordinator gal who would be great.)

Whatever works. Obviously, this is a big change, but since you know the story and I think you're our best hope for roleplaying fun.

Well yes. But some groups are more okay with the GM running a character than are others, and I thought it'd be courteous to ask.


M Human (Varisian) M Human Ranger LE L2 | AC17 T13 FF14 | HP 21/21| F +4 R+7 W+2 | Init+3 | Perc+7

I'd be fine with you continuing to run Fredo if you took over DMing - I like the dynamic between the characters. I assume that if you take over running, Fredo would stay on at least through the warehouse, anyway.


Male Human Inquisitor 2 (sin eater)

Yep .. I'm OK with it as well.


Same here.


Male Filipino Gamemaster 10/Artist (Starving Artist) 10

Since that's settled, I'll send an inheritance email to Webmaster.


Well alrighty then. Here's my GM persona.

It'll take me a little while to build up enough of a buffer in terms up maptool maps to be comfortable moving forwards at a reasonable pace, so expect this to pick up again around Saturday morning EST.

Awesome.

Sweet, look forward to picking this back up.

Qadira

Thanks again. I'll be out of town this weekend, but should be able to post at some point on Saturday.


Male Probably human Computer Scientist 1/ Character Synthesizer 20/ Crazy 99

Hey is everything okay? Just checking to see if this is still going.


Male Chelaxian Void Wizard 5

It is, but I haven't been able to get Maptool to work. I'll have to work with Excel and inkscape if you still want me to GM.


Male Probably human Computer Scientist 1/ Character Synthesizer 20/ Crazy 99

That'll work. the MG in one of the PBP's I'm in uses a google docs spread sheet for a map.


Male Filipino Gamemaster 10/Artist (Starving Artist) 10

I used Photoshop. XD


Okay, gang, after enduring a medically-induced coma (read: midterms) this is recussitated. Durriken, I believe your action has yet to be completed.

AC 15/FF12/T13;F6/R7/W3;Init+4;Perc+9;Clmb7;DisD14;Intim5;Local6;Sleight9;Stlt h9;Surv9

Lolz.

Welcome back, GM Zimmer. I'm glad you're back.

Excellent.


Male Human Inquisitor 2 (sin eater)

I hear ya .. just uploaded my midterm project with 11 minutes to spare. Sleep tonight. Tomorrow I apologize to everyone I raged on during my stress.


M Human (Varisian) M Human Ranger LE L2 | AC17 T13 FF14 | HP 21/21| F +4 R+7 W+2 | Init+3 | Perc+7

Zimmer, thanks again for taking over. Of course, I say this as I'm busy staring down a tank. Yipe.


Male Chelaxian Void Wizard 5

Relax, you'll be fine :P


Says the wizard.

Don't worry, the resident tank killer's going to be coming up soon.

Just try not to get hit.


M Human (Varisian) M Human Ranger LE L2 | AC17 T13 FF14 | HP 21/21| F +4 R+7 W+2 | Init+3 | Perc+7

Oh, believe me, I'll try. I'm not usually good at that, but I will try.


Male Chelaxian Void Wizard 5

Okay, gang, this is an experiment. Basically I want to see how you fare while Fredo's otherwise engaged - in this case his other engagement happens to be getting beat up by a little girl. This won't determine whether or not I retire him as a PC, but it will impinge upon my decision. In case you're worried, I honestly don't think you'll have much trouble.


I should also add that each PC gained 161 XP from that last encounter. So go ahead and add that to your sheets.


M Human (Varisian) M Human Ranger LE L2 | AC17 T13 FF14 | HP 21/21| F +4 R+7 W+2 | Init+3 | Perc+7

Really enjoying the descriptive style, Zimmer. Map link doesn't seem to be working, though.

Thank ya much. I hope it won't get old after a while. There's only so many ways I can describe gruesome deaths.

Odd, it's working for me. Try this one. Maybe you were prompt enough in making this observation that the forum won't bar me from editing it into my Gameplay post. EDIT: no such luck.

It shouldn't matter much. The only thing you need to care about is that the blond guy in the red jacked moved to K16.


M Human (Varisian) M Human Ranger LE L2 | AC17 T13 FF14 | HP 21/21| F +4 R+7 W+2 | Init+3 | Perc+7

OK, trying to picture all this. Raseri is now downstairs, Theron and I are still adjacent to the baddie, Tristain is in the doorway, and Fredo's on the ground in the big room. Did I actually succeed in grappling this guy?


I think you did, and you have everyone's positions correct I believe. Good thing I have a speed of 40 ft. :)
