Expert 3/Slacker 4/Layabout 2

I was just commenting that Chardak is not the most socially attuned individual. Given his history, niceties like Nesteruk's use of we instead of I will slide by him undetected.

I liked AK's use of we, and wanted him to know that despite the fact that Chardak didn't respond to Nesteruk.

As DM I respect your privledge to assign DCs to picking up any sort of social cue or other behavioral clue to intent or meaning in interactions with NPC.

During usual PC banter I feel player RP considerations should rule. If player's want to throw social skill rolls out there, I'm willing to modify my PC's response, but think that clearly defining intent OOC or by description is prefereable.

In a PvP social situation rolls may be appropriate.

Again, the intent of my game post was merely to give Alex props for a nice bit of RP.

I think i'll take the liberty to add some Sense Motive DC's to Nesteruk's "slips" in future. Personally got no problem with skills like that being used on PC's- if I had it my way, Diplomacy could be used by NPC's to influence PC attitudes :P.

RPing his low charisma with the moments of awkwardness and slips. Although how the group will react when he spontaneously develops a third arm should be highly amusing.

I think it is more I view a high sense motive as noticing clues and usually would roleplay them as such. I can see in character if you are socially inept if not actively trying to figure out is this person is making a reference.

I think Lyle and Jondar aren't really coming back. This isn't the best time for disapparences in teh party after just starting.

both have been off the boards for months now.


gm 3

How does the party feel about recruiting new players?


Male Half-Orc Inquisitor of Gorum 2

Rather than reboot in the middle of this bandit mission, two of us could just take over Lyle and Jondar until we get back to town, or they die. When we finish the mission or they die, we could recruit.


Winter Witch 3

Just have them eaten by something, we head back to town and recruit.


gm 3

I also think Ronigan is not very happy after he got bitten by the dog on the way here. He may want out.


Winter Witch 3

I think we would have leveled up by now.


gm 3

Okay rechecking math on xp.
avioding hazard by following tracks cr 1 67
Cr 2 maggot encounter each character gets 100
6 orcs 160 each cr 3
3 half orcs 67 cr 1
cave boss 133 cr 3
story award 160 cr 3
Wait Karthan dropped out before the story award
The following two encounters
3 stirges cr 2 for each 3 pcs 200 since Jondar and lyle dropped out.
riding dog + advanced dog 200 each
Recruiting Ronigan 90 xp
total 1177 so need one more encounter should do it.


Winter Witch 3

or you could fudge it and give us XP since we are still around and thus level up.


gm 3

And then recruit new second level pcs?


Male Half-Orc Inquisitor of Gorum 2

Works for me. Staying at first level does too. Your call.


HP 12/17, AC- 15 T- 11 FF- 14 CMD 16 F +7, R +5, W +4, P +8, In +1, AOO +6 Half-Orc Alchemist 2

^^.


gm 3

I want to know what player think of the new recruits so far.


HP 12/17, AC- 15 T- 11 FF- 14 CMD 16 F +7, R +5, W +4, P +8, In +1, AOO +6 Half-Orc Alchemist 2

Link?


Winter Witch 3

just click on the recruitment tab at the top.


Expert 3/Slacker 4/Layabout 2

Just saw that there were new recruitment posts. The thread dot issue strikes again. I'll look at them tonight.


gm 3

Thread change issue more likely as It is not the same recruitment thread. I want to see in my campaigns that it has new posts in the campiagn tab. I also don't click on recruitment threads with 100 some posts like the old one.


Winter Witch 3

I don't think we have a 1000gp each in goods?


gm 3

crud undertreausred but you can take some stuff from Jondar and Lyle. Players dropping out caused more experience under wealth by level. I will give you first pick of treasure after this adventure.


gm 3

Can I get the current party memebers leveled up please?


HP 12/17, AC- 15 T- 11 FF- 14 CMD 16 F +7, R +5, W +4, P +8, In +1, AOO +6 Half-Orc Alchemist 2

Will try and get it done this evening.

would you like me to make intro posts in town or near the party's current location?


gm 3

The party isn't really in town the new players have heard of a group of bandits that were outlaws and were told to investigate. I wonder if the party members that were already in the party want anytihng off of previous party members. After that the new members will arrive.


Expert 3/Slacker 4/Layabout 2

Looting our comrades. When we get to it.

Lyle's gear is all small. Chardak won't want any part of it.

Did Jondar have the wand of CLWs? It wasn't in his equipment list.

Chardak would take any of the Light steel shield, healer's kit, silk rope, rations, waterskin and the holy symbol of Pharasma, if no one minds.

The crossbow and quarrels could also be useful.

Lyle's gear:
- Dagger (1 lb)
- Longspear, small (9 lbs)
- Crossbow, light, small (4 lbs)
- Crossbow bolts x20 (2 lbs)
- Backpack (2 lbs)
- Bedroll (5 lbs)
- Candles x2
- Case, scroll, .5 lbs
- Chalk pieces x2
- Flint & steel
- Mug (1 lbs)
- Rations, trail x2 (2 lbs)
- Sack (.5 lbs)

Jondar's gear:
weapons
morningstar+1 1d8+1 x2
light crossbow +0 1d8
20 bolts
armor Studded Leather -1 acp
light steel shield

gear
Bolts, Crossbow (20)
Crossbow, Light
Morningstar
Shield, Light Steel
Studded Leather
Holy symbol, wooden: Pharasma
Other Gear Backpack (8 @ 12 lbs)
Blanket
Healer's kit (10 uses)
Rations, trail (per day) (5)
Rope, silk (50 ft.)
Waterskin
gold: 5gp 8sp


HP 12/17, AC- 15 T- 11 FF- 14 CMD 16 F +7, R +5, W +4, P +8, In +1, AOO +6 Half-Orc Alchemist 2

Don't really want any of their gear tbh...

Think Nesteruk's only loot is still the axe.

Edit: Yup, pretty much. I'll take the crossbow and bolts when it comes down to it.

Edit 2: Got Nesteruk updated in Herolab, when exactly are we levelling, this evening game time? I have quite a story critical (well, Nesteruk's story) and mildly disturbing moment I need to play out around the campfire as part of level up lol.

Edit 3: HP roll- 1d8 ⇒ 5


Expert 3/Slacker 4/Layabout 2

Looking forward to that.

Scarab Sages

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

we could camp by the well if you all wanted. No worries here.

Scarab Sages

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

what time of day is is, anyway?


gm 3

Around 11'o clock in the morning.

Scarab Sages

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

wayyy to early to camp then, I guess.


Spells:
lvl1: 3/5 used
AC 16/Touch 11/FF14 HP 16/28 Saves 3/3/2 +2 vs illusion Init: +8

Umm... Guys? I feel like everyone disappeared.


gm 3

One thing to note about play by post is that it can be slow at times.


Spells:
lvl1: 3/5 used
AC 16/Touch 11/FF14 HP 16/28 Saves 3/3/2 +2 vs illusion Init: +8

Yes, I expected a little slow. Just got concerned when a whole day went by. I will be less concerned in the future. I just need to learn the pace of this particular game.


gm 3

Can I have a marching order for the party now?


Spells:
lvl1: 3/5 used
AC 16/Touch 11/FF14 HP 16/28 Saves 3/3/2 +2 vs illusion Init: +8

Pip wants somewhere near the middle, as explained in the post.


Male Human Cavalier 2 (HP 20, AC 17/11/16 F +5 R +1 W +3)

Storm does not know his way around, but will follow behind the leader while mounted on his horse


Male Human Ranger 2

I'll probably be taking rear guard, do we have to single file? or are we in 2's? Storm up front with Nesteruk or Chardak unless I'm misinterpretting characters. The NPC needs to be up front to lead, I'm assuming Anna doesn't want to be up front being a caster. Storm will want room to charge yes?

Single File order, Ronigan, Chadrak, Nesteruk, Pipper, Storm, Anna, Me

2x2 is basically that just every second person we move aside. Uh pipper you are exactly in tee midddle like you wanted.

Acceptable?

I didn't realize we had so much melee...Going to need to focus ranged more than before.


Male Half-Orc Inquisitor of Gorum 2

Chardak and Grinby up front makes sense. Ronigan too since he's leading.


HP 12/17, AC- 15 T- 11 FF- 14 CMD 16 F +7, R +5, W +4, P +8, In +1, AOO +6 Half-Orc Alchemist 2

Nesteruk will want second rank or so yes. And he'll stay close to Chardak...


Male Human Ranger 2

I am one of the few with ranged it seems, so wouldn't it make sense to put me further back?


Male Human Cavalier 2 (HP 20, AC 17/11/16 F +5 R +1 W +3)

As long as I can charge at the enemy, im good.
