Hi, welcome to the In Search of Heroes out of character discussion thread. I guess this is where we're at:

Now is the time to go over the mechanics of your character and get them posted to your alias if you haven’t already. Make sure to include the traits chosen, including the full wording. Please check feats and spells to make sure that they meet the Core and APG limitations, unless already cleared with me.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.

***RAWR***

I summon myself from the aether and into this thread!!!

Let the coils of mortality attach to my soul. Let the formations of flesh give rise to my being. Let emotion and feelings drive my existence.

I am Kast.


Male Halfing (Chelaxian) (HP: 30/32, AC: 12 (f11/t12))

Great group - thanks for selecting me. I have everything posted to my alias and it's all current and set in stone I think. Please let me know if any of it is unclear, you want me to do it differently, etc.

This is going to rock!


Yay! I have people! hmmmnomnomnom


Thanks Othoe. I was thinking a day or so for putting together mechanical stuff. Does that sound like enough time for everyone?

Woot! Looking forward to the game! Character build is up, but I'll need to add in the full wording for the traits, feats, and spells, and I need to double check that I haven't included any material from sources other than the Core and APG.


M Human (Cheliaxian) Fighter (Cad) 3 /Rogue 3

Should be good! ;) I'll hopefully have all the necessaries up tonight (I'm on GMT, so am aware that I might be out of sync with everybody else). Will inform people ASAP if it's likely to take longer.

I'm probably going to swap the stats around a bit, as I originally built Chrystosm as a rogue - assume that'll be OK, but let me know if not.

My two coppers, Seka, is that I've seen you do a rogue so if you wanted to branch out, that's fine with me. I don't believe much in the concept of "party balance" so as long as your character and RP are good, I'm happy.

That said, I should have Kast's build up sometime tomorrow. I probably should decide on something soon enough.


|| Per +15 | Fort +9 Ref +9 Will +6 | BAB +5 | CMB +7 | CMD 20 || Half-Elf (Humanoid Elf/Human) Paladin of Erastil/Ranger 3/2

Hello hello! Thank you for the invite. Everything should be in my profile, but if I've missed anything let me know. I'll be adding more skills and prettying it up tonight when I have some time.


Looking forward to the game! I'll have to look over my character profile later today, but I think it has everything needed. Let me know if anything's missing.


That's fine Chrystosm. Like Kast says, build what you want to play. party balance isn't something I'm worried about. If you find yourselves in front of something that your current configuration can't handle, then running is always an option.

Kast: yes, you're going to want to get a move on. Remember, you don't have to outrun the Ankheg, just your fellow party members. *looks pointedly at the leg* oooh, right.

Thanks everyone. I'll take a look at completed profiles and touch base over the course the day.

Tomorrow, Miss Laurel should have a break in her day to see you. We'll start there.

Ouch. Well played.

EDIT: In a (futile, I'm sure) effort to prevent future barbs being hurled my way, I have updated Kast's alias with his details. I'll format more tonight.


M Human (Cheliaxian) Fighter (Cad) 3 /Rogue 3

Profile is now up!


|| Per +15 | Fort +9 Ref +9 Will +6 | BAB +5 | CMB +7 | CMD 20 || Half-Elf (Humanoid Elf/Human) Paladin of Erastil/Ranger 3/2

Should be updated and cleaned up, let me know if you see any problems.


Human Oracle 5 / Witch 1 | init +3, per +1 | AC 16/13/13 | HP 19/37 | Fort +1, Reflex +4, Will +11 | CMB +4, CMD 17

Updates complete, Simon should be good to go, if anyone sees something that needs correction please let me know.


The gameplay thread is officially open!


Just a heads up. Moving into my new house next weekend and I'll be heading over there frequently to make it ready. I apologize if I post less than normal.


Thanks for the heads up. If necessary, I'll move you along, but our pace is fairly slow.


So, I was having a philosophical discussion with someone elsewhere and some stuff came up that I thought would be good to drop here.

I am not the strictest rules person out there. In fact, I'm probably not in the top 50% of the strictest rules people I know. However, I do try to follow the rules to the best of my ability, most of the time. I expect that you will all do the same, and we can help each other out, bringing problems and questions to the OOC thread as necessary.

That said, I see my primary role to be making sure we have a good story and good role playing within the rules. With that in mind, I reserve the right to fiddle with things as needed for story or RP purposes.


Male Human (Varisian) Scholar 2; AC 14, Touch 9, Flat 14 (-1 dex); HP 21/21; Init -1.

I, for one, will be happy to cede my trust to the Big Angry Mean Green Ankheg and agree with the above.

BAMGA:

There, I was first to agree...that means you'll eat me last, right?

** spoiler omitted **

Kast:
hmmm, since you first to agree, why don't we go with you not being first to be eaten? After all, we want this game to last a long while, and I get peckish after 3rd level.

I like to stay within the rules as much as possible (they're there for a reason), however I am always willing to look for ways to RP flavorful items that aren't part of the rules, as long as I don't break a rule. One of the things I like about pbp is the ability to do this effortlessly. (Ever tried describing a flashy action at the table top? Feels kind of odd)


Human Oracle 5 / Witch 1 | init +3, per +1 | AC 16/13/13 | HP 19/37 | Fort +1, Reflex +4, Will +11 | CMB +4, CMD 17

Fiddle away, it's good by me, I'd even encourage it for flavor. I'd say that I'm in top 10% of GMs that don't follow the rules, I don't think I've ever ran an adventure completely by the book in 27 years of gaming.


Sorry for the delay this morning. The map took longer than I expected. It is by invitation only, so please message me with an email address I can use to "invite" you.


|| Per +15 | Fort +9 Ref +9 Will +6 | BAB +5 | CMB +7 | CMD 20 || Half-Elf (Humanoid Elf/Human) Paladin of Erastil/Ranger 3/2

I will be hosting a 4th of July party today and attending PaizoCon this week(end), so my posting will be spotty.


Human Oracle 5 / Witch 1 | init +3, per +1 | AC 16/13/13 | HP 19/37 | Fort +1, Reflex +4, Will +11 | CMB +4, CMD 17

I'll be going to PaizoCon this weekend, so ditto to what Nimeon said.


I will also be spotty from this point forward until Monday evening. I will try to post every day, but will be at a family event so anything could happen. I probably won't be able to do map updates until Monday, unfortunately, but with the coordinates, we should still be able to use the ones we have.

Be sure to find me and Nimeon/Balodek while you're there, Bomb.

We can make sekrit plans to get that big mean ankheg that is always tormenting us.


Human Oracle 5 / Witch 1 | init +3, per +1 | AC 16/13/13 | HP 19/37 | Fort +1, Reflex +4, Will +11 | CMB +4, CMD 17

Excellent! Beers on me gentlemen, hope to see you there!

Cheers, Adam

Nimeon, Kast, are either of you driving past Portland, Oregon on Sunday and have an extra space in your car? I'll pay for gas.


|| Per +15 | Fort +9 Ref +9 Will +6 | BAB +5 | CMB +7 | CMD 20 || Half-Elf (Humanoid Elf/Human) Paladin of Erastil/Ranger 3/2

I'm flying in and out of Bismarck to Seattle or I would help out.


Male Human (Varisian) Scholar 2; AC 14, Touch 9, Flat 14 (-1 dex); HP 21/21; Init -1.

I, too, will be flying, Simon. I expect to be over Portland (from the Bay Area) at around 11am today.


I am on the road to the wedding until this evening. I'm taking the computer with me, but have no idea what sort of connection I will have. I'll update if I can once I'm settled. Best case scenario is late tonight (pacific), Worst is back on Monday.


So it was indeed worst case scenario. But the good news is I will be able to post tonight. I will resolve anything that has been posted up until then. If you are trying to reason with the Voice of Dancing Doom, please leave me either Diplomacy/Bluff/ or intimidate rolls for me and I'll factor those in when I respond.

Sorry for the delays, it is so good to be home!


Male Human (Varisian) Scholar 2; AC 14, Touch 9, Flat 14 (-1 dex); HP 21/21; Init -1.

Big Mean Ankheg!

I'm flying back from 3pm to 5pm tonight and will be back online late tonight and on the morrow.

And, don't worry, there is no way that me, Simon S, & Nimeon spent a bunch of time in the PaizoCon bar plotting against you. Nope. Nua-uh. Nope.

So...you have no idea our plans to sekritly ambush you with some stealth RP. Not true.

So yeah...


Huh, that's not what my uber sekrit spies said. I suppose that means I'll have to make a slight change of plans for this week's lunches, err, I mean RP.


New house is without internet until this Friday. Will try and update as much as possible while at work.


can you guys do me a favor and use the
round X, Initiative Y for me while we're in initiative, so I know what actions to track?


Dorial, I've been looking at Wind Blast, and the rules for swarms. I don't think it has any effect on the swarm, as these are tiny, the size of rats, not diminutive or fine. Swarms are immune to spells or effects that target specific creatures, and are also immune to bullrush.


Human Oracle 5 / Witch 1 | init +3, per +1 | AC 16/13/13 | HP 19/37 | Fort +1, Reflex +4, Will +11 | CMB +4, CMD 17

for the record, I'm aware that the weapon attack won't hurt the spider swarm, but Simon wouldn't know that, thus the attempt to smash 'em real good.


I thought spider swarms were diminutive? The idea was to use it as more of a wind effect, which the diminutive swarms are susceptible to. If they're tiny, would I be able to treat it as a normal bull rush against each of them since wind blast hits everything in a line?


A regular spider swarm is diminutive. This not a regular spider swarm. It is, however, still a swarm, and cannot be bull rushed.


|| Per +15 | Fort +9 Ref +9 Will +6 | BAB +5 | CMB +7 | CMD 20 || Half-Elf (Humanoid Elf/Human) Paladin of Erastil/Ranger 3/2

Well at least as Tiny creatures we can actually hurt them with weapons, although my crit did nothing.


Sorry, Simon, I think the swarm should have taken full damage from your bludgeoning attack. I won't retcon, but we'll go forward with that assumption.


Human Oracle 5 / Witch 1 | init +3, per +1 | AC 16/13/13 | HP 19/37 | Fort +1, Reflex +4, Will +11 | CMB +4, CMD 17

my bad, I was assuming it had the same traits as a regular spider swarm, glad to hear the morningstar will work though!


So I was thinking that it'd be fun to have a live chat that we could all hop into to throw some BS around and talk about the game, etc. Does anyone know of anything that is accessible from the browser/iphone/android?

Well, most of us are available via googlechat, Dorial. Othoe, GM Angry Big Bug, Nimeon, and I chat somewhat frequently...and would love have you join us.

I suggest Trillian or Adium as a way to get into Googlechat and can find my gmail address on my main alias.

If that works, we can ask others to release their names as well.

Ping me. I'm PST, California.


I've got Google Talk on my phone. Will that work?

Why don't you try it? ;)


Yes, you should have my address in there already.
