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.

Ok, so what I'm getting is that we're mostly fine with speeding things up, but for some, doing so is a bit more difficult due to RL commitments.

I'd like to put forward the idea of moving rolls behind the screen. This means that we spend less time with the back and forth of asking for specific rolls, and then waiting for everyone to respond before moving on. I would make the rolls and you would decide your actions. What do we think of this? I'm told it's a more common practice on pbp campaigns.

Alternatively, you could posts your own rolls with your actions when you know you will need a roll. For example, attacks. But I would make any of the rolls that happen automatically (vs. spells, traps, perception)

So. opinions?

I like this one:

I agree with Casivan


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

Thank you, dice roller. I deliberately don't meta-game and you give me a three. Joy :P

The reactionary rolls would still be made in public it'd just be that they are made by our friendly DM in his post instead of waiting ~12 hours for us to post our individual reflex saves.

I am wondering why an awesome critical hit attempting to slice of the unseen manipulating hands sliced through the do-do instead?


I thought you were attempting to cut the object. My mistake. It was set to detonate the next round in any case, so the only change would be fluff.


Female Human Monk 7

Yeah I knew the action wasn't likely to do anything productive :)


Female Human Monk 7

I'm heading out bush for a long weekend in several hours time. So I'll be offline for 3 days.


Still here btw. I'll let the group come to their own decision about what to do next.

I stated my intentions.


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

Killing the dude that blinded me once I regain my sight is priority one. Other than that I am just exploring the world.


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

Alric believes this whole end of the world battle is part of his destiny, so hes in favor of following through on it. But Im open as to how.

Cool site, does whatever languages you can think of.

Edelle:
Mechanically, what the couple has given you is a random extra effect to any single attack you make, but you must also make a fortitude save for each time you use that attack. The DC increases with frequency. The benefits and penalties are not made clear to you. Frustratingly, these people speak in generalities, philosophies, and riddles.


I had perceived the speak with master ability to mean that the creature speaks any language the master does, but others perceive it as just animal noises or gibberish. You can skin the mechanic however you like, but the cat doesn't actually have any languages natural to it. (vocal chords not able to articulate in the right ways and such.

Ah, wasn't sure if the cat was just a cat with the celestial template or an outsider that resembled a cat.

Either way, I go about speaking with it in random languages until the point at which I realize that it isn't responding to me in kind, it's simply speaking and my mind is interpreting it as speech on it's part, at which point I resume speaking in common.


Female Human Monk 7

We'll call it Rainbow Attack? And I'll keep a counter of it in my profile.

Unarmed attack or monk weapon attack or any attack?


Sounds good


Female Human Monk 7

You probably missed my edit:
Unarmed attack or monk weapon attack or any attack?


Your teachers aren't familiar with the use of weaponry in the same way as you. unarmed strike only.

Okay, now Im really confused, Teri's talking to a cat, villagers are chasing dragons, let me know when I need to go prop up the sky

I introduced you to the cat last night.

You forget, Alric can't hear the cat's speech, and is still considering temporary insanity is the explanation. Even if accepted, its still an odd occurence to him.


I just want to confirm this before moving on: Your group does NOT want to investigate the child's report of a dragon near town at this moment?


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

Casvian has no interest in playing with dragons at the moment due to his current condition, but he will not make a big deal of it if the others wish to go.

Teriwyth is of a similar sentiment, though on his best day he wouldn't even think about going against a dragon. Though Edelle expressed interest in going and he's hardly one to keep people from their fun.


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

Alric would go, just due to curiosity about the draconic. But not as keen to interfere.


Female Human Monk 7

I'm rather largely in favour of going and seeing the dragon.

I'm also interested in 100% ignoring the retcon/clarification about two weapons and monk flurry that is happening currently :)


The what?


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

Magnu according to the devs monk must use two weapons when flurrying. It seems nobody is a fan of this idea.


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

Starting wit the next game day, can we just assume that Alric casts Extended Mage Armor on himself each morning? Its getting troublesome to track.


The Monk weapon fiasco seems illogical to me. They can flurry unarmed without using two appendages, so adding another qualifier for weapons just seems like extraneous complication. For me, I think we should carry on as we always have.

Alric: As long as you if/when it ends in the evening, You don't have to mention it. We'll consider it part of the morning ritual. Brush teeth, Wash face, prepare for monsters biting your face, floss. etc.


For the visual learners Black blocks are buildings. Borders are plateaus of hilltops. Going from outside to in requires a DC 10 climb check to avoid slipping on the slick and wet. Failure indicates no movement. failure by 5 or more incidates falling and moving down the hill 5 feet. Standard high ground rules apply otherwise.


Male Half-Elf Bard 1/Wizard 6

hello?


Just as an FYI, I have a friend who is a graphic artist working on a world map for you guys. It will be available once she finishes it.


Male Human Arcane Sorcerer 7

Hello. Just for tracking.


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

might be out of touch for a while. Exams


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

Ok, no problem.

<Realizes I am not the GM.> Bribe Magnu with cookies. He will give you time off and 3 free levels.


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

Exams over quickly and relatively painlessly, so im back with a vengeance. I'll just get the plot ball rolling.

Edit: Sory Wraith, but digital cookies just aren't the same.
Clears cookies from web browser


k(local) from anyone who has it of: Casvian, Edelle, Thervold, Alric


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

I don't have it.

I didn't have my wizard flakes that morning. They're the cornerstone of any good wizard's breakfast.


Int check for Alric: 1d20 ⇒ 16


I plan for the events of the rodeo to run together quite smoothly. This means that there will be some large walls of text. If you would like to interject with an action at any point, feel free to do so. I will limit my posts to once every 2 days(except to answer questions/ask for dice rolls) so that everyone has a chance to read and comment.


Female Human Monk 7

Sounds good.


Map of Arena. Please Assume NPC's are general.
Thervold Can request to view/edit the map with his personal email anytime.


Female Human Monk 7

I sure hope the ride DC aint too high.


For the sake of expediency, You folks can assume the ranch hands are cooperative enough to listen to all of your questions before they speak. This will save us having to wait for back and forth.


Female Human Monk 7

Damn that was a tough weekend of ripping out a kitchen in my new apartment. With finishing that off, I may be less responsive than normal :)
