Game Master Magnu123

In short, this homebrew was intended for beginner GM's. The story contains a variety of elements in sequence that gradually go through different terrains, battle situations, and other challenges to allow a DM to become familiar with the rules.


1 to 50 of 379 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | next > last >>

This is to become the new centre for OOC discussion. Helps to keep the action and story separated from the mechanics and makes things more immersive.


Ok, who all is going to be going with Edelle, and I'll need a marching order, both single and double file.


Also, just wondering if everyone would mind copying their statblocks to their character profile. It's something I occasionally need to look at, and it's a hassle to search through previous posts. Some of you have already done this.


Male Half Elf Fighter 1/Sorceror 4/Dragon Disciple 2

Alric is following Edelle. Behind her in single file, beside in double i guess.


male Halfling rogue 6

survival roll to track the party and discover which way they went
1d20 + 1 ⇒ (19) + 1 = 20

Strealth roll to do it quietly
1d20 + 16 ⇒ (7) + 16 = 23

Perception to spot or hear any baddies
1d20 + 11 ⇒ (8) + 11 = 19

stealth if i find their trail and can follow it
1d20 + 16 ⇒ (2) + 16 = 18

If all the rolls work out I hope to meet up with the group that went south.


Male Human 59/66 hp Ranger(guide variant) 6

Sorry I just found this one. Is Witness with us?
I will post the character to my profile tonight.


Female Human Monk 7

Ahh I hadn't seen this thread, sweet.

Updated profile to have stats.

I'm happy with that marching order. Lets try and be quiet though, I'm not scared of being followed but I'd like to surprise people at this point.


Female Human Monk 7

Just reading what the different characters have done: I would feel that Sumatek would have left the temple before Edelle and Alrik returned from the armoury.

So we should be wandering south as a single group.


Male Human 59/66 hp Ranger(guide variant) 6

I forgot to post the marching order. I will be in the back


Male Human 59/66 hp Ranger(guide variant) 6

I am having trouble with the character. What were the initial point buy and starting wealth. Things are not adding up.

15 pts. lv 5 WBL to start.


@ Casvian: Witness is not currently with your group.

@Argent, Thundrik: Your input?


Male Human 59/66 hp Ranger(guide variant) 6

I think I messed up my starting stats somehow. I will post again once everything is fixed.


Looks like it, yeah. I would recommend showing your work. I'd like to recommend you show more than just the single attack for your bow, since you have so many options.
Maybe show one completely unedited and then show one applying all special abilities, showing the math. (ex: +10 base,-2 deadly aim, +1 PB shot, +4 ranger's focus, -2 rapid shot=+11/+11(d8+3+4 deadly aim+1PB shot+4 ranger's focus=12)

It seems I had to many attribute points, and I was not adding the magic damage from my bow. I will gained damage, and lost a few hp. I fixed it though so I will be putting the new modifiers in my profile which go off of the new stats.

PS:I keep getting an error 404 for my profile. I will post a spoiler of the profile here until the error is fixed.

It is fixed now.


Male Human Magus (Blade Bound, Hexcrafter)5

Sorry had no real opinion one way or the other and neither did Argent. Again sorry about the late reply...busy as usual. :)


I hear you about that. I'm pretty busy here too. Even if your post is just: I hold my action, at least I know that is what you want.


Casvian:

Your cloak of resistance is nowhere to be found and the bow in your posession appears to be simply of masterwork . Additionally, your flint and steel and everburning torch are missing.

This is what was written at the start of the Chapter for you. After this, you reclaimed armor equal to your own (breastplate), and your bow & quiver. You also attained some flint/steel & a torch from the small camp in the caves. You also still possess the light bomb given to you by Dratis.


Witness:
Are you sure you want to go with the reincarnation thing? It's interesting and it's essentially about to happen, but I just want you to be aware that this could potentially cause some major difficulties for your character's RP side.


Male Dwarf Druid 5

Yep, I'm fine with it. Go big or go home.


Map is up on our site if anyone needs it. Things are pretty straightforward though right now.


Male Dwarf Druid 5

Reincarnate % roll: 1d100 ⇒ 2... that would net me another dwarf.

1-50 = Male, otherwise female... 1d100 ⇒ 87.

Looks like I unaged 70 years and swapped gender.


@Witness: Sounds good. I'll need a day or two to get some logistics figured out. Watch that the ability bonuses for your mental stats shouldn't be affected by race anymore if they were before.

@Sumatek: Unfortunately, drow poison save frequency is 1/minute. Unless things run long, you're probably going to be out for the fight.

@Edelle: I just got the most hilarious vision of two tough guys cautiously moving forward through tunnel, and then you sprinting past them full tilt screaming bloody murder.


Male Dwarf Druid 5

Got myself a more fitting avatar :)

Sucks that I actually lose 2 off my primary casting stat. Sure, I got two charisma in return, but who needs THAT eh?


You'd be surprised....


Male Half Elf Fighter 1/Sorceror 4/Dragon Disciple 2

Wait, if Witness is a dwarf again, why the stat changes?


Short version: reincarnate is a weird spell. Long version: mental stats represent social and cultural influences within a race that are, naturally, absent in a body which has been newly created.
Although, now that you mention it, I have not actually found anything referencing a change to mental ability scores in the spell description. Witness, you are free to keep your stats. please excuse the error.


Male Human 59/66 hp Ranger(guide variant) 6

Is this the same day we fought the other two driders? I only remember healing and moving on, just want to be sure.


Yup. You haven't had a chance to rest yet.


Female Human Monk 7

Can we have an updated map please?


Ask and it shall be delivered.
Done


@Alric: Did you honestly just say DEAD ahead?


Male Human 59/66 hp Ranger(guide variant) 6

The link to drowtown in the wiki did not have the current map unless I overlooked it. Can the link be posted here?


Try This.


Male Half Elf Fighter 1/Sorceror 4/Dragon Disciple 2

im sorry, where are my [pun][/pun] tags


Male Human 59/66 hp Ranger(guide variant) 6

Thanks.


Female Human Monk 7

Hrm, I'm going to need a hit by the cure stick, that 12 points left me on 12.

Also stupid me forgetting to 5' step back after that round of combat :(

Is there a bend in the tunnel a convenient distance back for us to run back to and attempt to use to our advantage?


Male Human 59/66 hp Ranger(guide variant) 6

I think we need pause the game for 12 hours to see if Argent is still around. Thundrik has not posted in a while AFAIK, and we have one member unconscious. This is going to be a tough fight, and I don't think 3 of us are going to do it. Argent would give us someone else on the front lines.


@Edelle: You remember a sharp turn to the left back roughly half a minute. If your group can move quickly, you can get there in half that time.

@Casvian: I am fine with waiting a bit longer for Argent, but my concern is that the longer we wait, the more time Witness has to wait to be integrated again as well. I have spoken to Thundrik and I know the situation there.

All that being said, a tactical retreat this moment would not be a bad idea for the majority of the group.


Female Human Monk 7

So it's about 1.5 turns away for my character if I burn some Ki points . . . :P

I think Edelle would be up for a retreat/reposition about now, she's been hit pretty hard and hasn't made anything of an impact in return.


It's your turn Edelle, so you can do whatever you choose. This is a situation you are able to solve in character, I promise I'm not the type to throw TPK at you without due reason.


male Halfling rogue 6

ijust realized i should still be knocked out if the save timer is 1/minute. My last post should still be me sleeping and dreaming about rocks and gems.


Female Human Monk 7

Sorry I lost track of the turn order, sorry.


I generally do a turn summary once everyone for the round has posted. If you look for that summary and you haven't posted since then, that tells you that you're up.


Female Human Monk 7

PS: that round summary doesn't have the enemies doing anything. Am I missing something?


You aren't but I am. I'll post with their actions and the initiative order right away

Well, for those of you who don't know, it's Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend. I'd like to say: I'm thankful for good friends sharing stories together. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


M Anglo Australian

Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

in the interest of letting people know when I wont be posting: Next weekend is (mtg) Grand Prix: Brisbane and I'll be there judging so I wont be checking email/interweb/forums from Thursday arvo till Monday night.


Female Human Monk 7

So that hit takes me down to a precarious 4 HP. Alric is 10' behind me with a CMW wand in hand.

Options:
A) Spend a ki point to take my AC to 26 for the turn, take a single swipe at the elemental and move 10' back to Alric so he can cure me.

Cons: One of the two AoO could put me down.
Pros: The Zombie mightn't get a second attack next round after moving 10' to attack, don't know if this is correct though as the second attack appears to be linked to the drow.

B) Spend a ki point and make 3 attacks, trying to down the Elemental/start damaging the skeleton. 5' step back so Alric can 5'step up and cure me.

Cons: Alric has to 5' step up
Pros: Might drop the elemental.

Edit: B sounds better to me, except that Alric acted before we had the full update so he can't heal me before those monsters will get another swipe at me. So I have to go with the variant of A where I move back around to the other side of Alric and hide and hope the zombie and elemental don't choose to attack me anyway.

Edit2: I was forgetting that Casvian also has and can use a CMW wand so maybe he'll burn his turn helping out his flagging friend.


All interesting options. The choice is yours.
