LOLz. Seriously, I would not be playing PF if it wasn't for Maptools. All this math IS super crazy. Occasionally we find that maptools was wrong, or I put something in there wrong...but most of the time its spot on.

Sorry I haven't posted today been in bed with some sickness, I will try and get something up now.

Grand Lodge

Beppo...you haven't posted since Tuesday around 2pm...are you OK?

Sorry for the absence. Troublesome access lately. Will try to keep up better now.

Won't be able to post must today, boss is down and will have meetings all day.

Stupid question: do we have a time limit in here, or are we just keeping track of those long buffs?

Grand Lodge

long buffs :) Most of the buffs expired, I believe, but Edmond is on a timer...I forget how much time he lasts though.


Male Human Alchemist 6 | HP 57 | AC 20 FF 18 T13 | Saves +9/+9/+8 (with heroism) (+4 disease, +2 poison)| Init + 2 | Percep +10

50 minutes total, exact same time as the heroism potion he drank

Grand Lodge

Oh? I show heroism expired some time ago. Oh well...I'm easily confused, especially when I'm doing a full time job on the side :P . If you think it's up... great. If you don't...I'm showing 25 minutes used so far. (Search of the last two areas).


Male Human Alchemist 6 | HP 57 | AC 20 FF 18 T13 | Saves +9/+9/+8 (with heroism) (+4 disease, +2 poison)| Init + 2 | Percep +10

Killian cast heroism on Brandon which would have run out by now, just before I changed to Edmond I drank my own potion though to renew it.

Grand Lodge

Thoughts about lost keys In most of my regular campaigns, I have players maintain a log of events. In the play by posts, I haven't requested that since we can see the full history in writing here. Yet, in talking about this situation with one or two of you, no one recalled the keys found in the cove or anything. And, it turns out it's a bit of a pain to read through page after page of gameplay to find that one thing you need to recall. Perhaps a journal *is* in order? Thoughts?


Male Human Alchemist 6 | HP 57 | AC 20 FF 18 T13 | Saves +9/+9/+8 (with heroism) (+4 disease, +2 poison)| Init + 2 | Percep +10

Personally I don't think a journal is necessary. In terms of big, main events I think we recall everything. It might be useful for the new guys but I honestly wouldn't have the time to either read or contribute to a journal with other games and stuff in RL :/

Sorry.

Grand Lodge

I would just hate for you all to get stumped on something, like the keys. It's not the first time its happened, and I don't always have an NPC voice in the party. Some of these dungeons and situations literally become dead ends if you don't remember some of these details.

And as much as you don't have time to write/read...well, searching / scanning and entire month of posts (or more) takes a bloody long time, hahahaha. And it doesn't seem fair to presume that someone else will do it, and/or remind you (as a player) of those necessary details.

I'm open to other suggestions as well. Just trying to address what I see as a re-occuring concern here. With that being said, it's not a critical concern... yet :P


Male Human Alchemist 6 | HP 57 | AC 20 FF 18 T13 | Saves +9/+9/+8 (with heroism) (+4 disease, +2 poison)| Init + 2 | Percep +10

Generally one of us will always have a hero point for GM inspiration though. I'm not trying to lessen my commitment to the game, just trying to think of an alternative

Grand Lodge

And that would be a logical thought. Experience has taught me that players don't want to use it. Unless I specifically push for players to do so, I've seen players leave a dungeon/town/etc rather than entertain the thought that they missed something that obvious, lolz.

As long as *you* guys keep it in mind, it is a good thought. Remember, you don't get charged if there's no answer.

Grand Lodge

We are coming close to when I would normally declare a two week or so break for the holidays...as it gets harder for people to keep up with all that silly holiday activity and prep. Might be a good time to do that now, eh? Thoughts?


Male Human Sorcerer (Celestial) 6

I'm good for another week or so.

Same here, but I can be flexible either way.


retired

I'm at the office every day up until Christmas and then back the day after, so I'm available for the duration.


Male Human Alchemist 6 | HP 57 | AC 20 FF 18 T13 | Saves +9/+9/+8 (with heroism) (+4 disease, +2 poison)| Init + 2 | Percep +10

Ouch that's harsh Killian. I'll try to keeping over the holiday period.

Grand Lodge

I would really like to hear from everyone today. What are your thoughts for the rest of the year? Do you want to play everyday except the holiday dates themselves? Or do you want to take one week off? Two? Let me know, please. I would like to declare our plans by the end of the day.


Male Human Fighter 5 HP 45/49 | AC 22 (t13 f20) | F+6 R+5 W+5(+6vs Fear) | Perc +10 | Longsword +11, 1d8+6; Greatsword +12, 2d6+8

If it were just up to me, I would say let's take 12/24/13 through 1/1/14 off.

That said, I would not oppose other alternatives. For instance, it would suck for Killian to have to work AND to have to manage it without some of his virtual pals, so I am perfectly willing to play every day except for the holiday dates themselves.


Male Chelaxian-Human Ranger 4 | HP 44 | AC 18 FF 15 T13 | Saves +6/+8/+3 | Init + 4 | Percep +10

Really harsh Killian, and i thought i had it bad.

I'm happy either way, would be nice to take the time off closer to Christmas so no stressing for people with family, but whatever the group decides.


retired

I'm fine with a hiatus, there's plenty to keep me busy at the office: such as my actual job responsibilities =P

If you guys wanted to keep trucking though, I'm just saying I'd be able.

Grand Lodge

Well, I got some good news and bad news.

Bad news is Killian died. His heart just couldn't handle the fear. Killian, you will need to roll a d100 once revived, assuming you do.

Good news, the party found loot. I'll detailed everything you find on the body, using a take 10 on spellcraft with detect magic, and add it to the loot table this weekend.

Better news. Happy Holidays. The party level is now six.


retired

Phantasmal killer? Yowza!


Male Human Sorcerer (Celestial) 6

*Glances at Killian*

*Double takes*

"Well. That's inconvenient"

Grand Lodge

Ayup...kinda gettin' to that level. At level 5 or so, you start getting nasties who are occasionally higher level than you. And PK (Funny how the letters work out there), is only a 4th level spell. Scary stuff!

Grand Lodge

Ok...Well seems like most of you just want to play though. Fair enough. Be aware that for the next two weeks or so, my posting times may be off. Furthermore, there will be no postings from me on the following days...

Friday, Dec 20
Wed Dec 25
Thur Dec 26
Wed Jan 1

Other days I have to play it by ear as I'll be in areas with limited internet connectivity. I'll do the best I can.

Even if I do not post, however, you can still post discussions between each other while waiting. Also, a number of you still need to post yoru background in the dropbox. Even if you have posted, you can feel free to add to what you have.


retired

I'll need to read through the houserules again to familiarize myself with how many Hero Points we come in with, but if my memory serves it's one per hit die, which would leave me with plenty for a raise dead.

I'm also not opposed to whipping up a new character entirely. Killian never spent any PPs, so it's not like it's a loss in that respect. If I did make a new character, I think he or she would be proficient at trapfinding. It feels awfully risky bringing low-level NPCs like Damaia into places that are starting to tout save-or-die traps!

And, fiddling with a new character would occupy me for an afternoon =P

Grand Lodge

OH, and Killian...don't think you're getting off just cuz you're taking a siesta at the moment. I have something in mind...but I need to see what way the party goes here.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Too late! I already got out a blanket and some popcorn and I'm curled up in a recliner waiting for the further slaughter to commence!


Male Human Alchemist 6 | HP 57 | AC 20 FF 18 T13 | Saves +9/+9/+8 (with heroism) (+4 disease, +2 poison)| Init + 2 | Percep +10

Sorry guys, been away for the weekend. I'm happy to play on but again can't guarantee regular posting in the run up to the holidays.

Also Killian, I'm planning on taking disable device ranks when I get around to doing my level-up.


Male Human Alchemist 6 | HP 57 | AC 18 FF 16 T13 | Saves +7/+7/+6 (+4 disease, +2 poison) | Init + 2 | Percep +10

Level Up to 6

+9 hp
Wings discovery
Uncanny dodge
New extracts learned: Bear's endurance, Blur
I earlier spent 4 power points for 6 skills and put them all in disable device. 1 in perception, 3 in fly, 1 in spellcraft, 2 in survival.
The book I took earlier increased my Will save by 1.

JC, can you let me know when you have updated the sheets please.


Male Human Sorcerer (Celestial) 6

Oh I'm so going to get haste.

Grand Lodge

You'll want to email all level up changes to me. I handle most of this stuff using my email account as a to do list :)


Male Human Sorcerer (Celestial) 6

Changes to be e-mailed:

+1 BAB
+1 All Saves
+1 0th level spell known
+1 2nd level spell per day
Ability to cast 3rd level spells, +4 3rd level spells per day
+1 3rd level spell known

Grand Lodge

I've given this a lot of thought...and I believe the right decision for me is to step down as GM of this campaign. Most of the reasons are personal. Mainly, as I look ahead to 2014, I want to reduce the number of concurrent campaigns I run so I can make the remaining campaigns a higher quality, deeper-RPG experience. Running contradictory to that is the fact that my responsibilities are increasing at work which makes this it more difficult to do just that on these play by posts. And, judging by the number and whatnot of the posts, many of you are in similar circumstances.

With that being said, I've loved this campaign so far, and I loved the roles and characters each of you have played. I brag about this group all of the time, and when it comes to getting in character, this group has been second to none. That's sayin' something since I've run over a half dozen campaigns since PF came out. Brandon, some of your posts are legendary. I love your character and the way you played him. Beppo, you've played the traditional in-your-face warrior I love so much very well. Kyle has made me laugh with his over the top love for the ways of Sheyln. Awesome stuff. And the rest of you too, of course!

Let me know what you think. Happy Holidays to all, as well.


Male Human Sorcerer (Celestial) 6

:( Sad to see this campaign go, but your reasons are good. I hope to play with you all in the future sometime!

Dawwww =\


Male Human Alchemist 6 | HP 57 | AC 18 FF 16 T13 | Saves +7/+7/+6 (+4 disease, +2 poison) | Init + 2 | Percep +10

I have to say I think this is a real shame. I also talk about this group a lot and some of the awesome events we've been through.

I really like playing Brandon/Edmond and enjoyed the interplay between him and Beppo and Aemon in particular.

Ill admit I haven't been as regular in posting recently as I'd like but work hasn't let up in the run up to Xmas and holiday preparation rolled in with that.

We had a good run though and did some epic stuff!
