A game of Jade Regent

1 to 50 of 354 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | next > last >>

Hi guys, thought I'd get this going so that we can get the characters finalised and have everything squared away. I'll go over the characters and set up a list of what I still need from you guys.

Mei Szilani, Human Monk of the Four Winds
- Gear and Money

Marduzi Lorvarya, Human Cavalier
- Non-combat gear, Mount

Nostariel Lan, Elven Dreamspeaker Witch
- Gear and Money (Mithral shirt would cost 1100gp and as far as I can tell the character should have a starting amount of 1005gp)
- If you’re not too dead set on it maybe change one of the traits to a campaigner

Ruhk Ekensköld, Human Ranger
- Need traits

Asira Nurami, Starsoul Sorcerer
- Finalising if Sorcerer or Oracle
- Gear

She crafted her arms and armor herself, over the years, hence the reduced costs, and ranks in various craft skills. If you feel it's a problem, I can rework her a bit, but I'd like to keep the traits I have if that's okay.

Question, though: did everyone else include their favored class bonus, if applicable to their current class? (Mei has no hp, and Asira has 18 hp!)

Did spot the hp, forgot to add it to the list, I was going to say that people at first level will gain the max possible roll + con and any other applicable bonuses.

Keeping the traits is fine but I'd prefer a rework on the Mithril Chain Shirt. Don't want to be an arse about it but the starting cash is meant to cover the costs of what a character already owns and I don't want to let craft be used prior to the beginning of the game as a cost cutting method.

AC 18/12/16 HP 19/19 F+4 R+2 W+0 Init+2 Per+6

Fantastic. Really looking forward to this campaign. I have made the updates to starting gear and added the mount into my profile. Completely out of cash, so I guess I'm going to be bumming drinks off the rest of you at the bar.

As for Favored Class Bonus, I went with the 1/4 banner bonus, so you won't be seeing that kick in for a little while.

I still need to make a final decision whether to go Order of the Dragon or Order of the Star. Right now it looks like Asira is the only other Desna worshipper so I'm inclined to stick with Order of the Dragon.

As far as the thoughts from the recruiting thread. I think overall the Varisians are a pretty tight lot, with the exception of probably some pretty varying views on the Sczarni. So, in spite of it being a bit odd that an elf has been adopted by a clan, I think that once you're in, you're in. Plus, if we're starting this with all of us having drinks together at a bar, then Marduzi and Asira are probably not too weirded out by Nostariel. Maybe curious or maybe old friends reacquainted.

Sure thing. I've seen preferences both ways. I'll trade the skill point out and dump the armor. So, we add our Con score to our starting hp?

Traded the armor for full-priced Mw studded leather (+5% spell failure), picked up a gauntlet and a spiked gauntlet, picked up a few non-combat items (marked harrow cards, bear trap, etc.), swapped rank in Craft (armor) for a rank in Knowledge (nature).

Should be done other than hp, if they need altering.

Marduzi: I like the idea of us all being friends, even if we didn't grow up together. And I can buy you a drink, cheapskate. :)

HP 18 was a mistake from me, sorry. I used an existing character for the template and just forgot to change the HP.

I am going with an oracle of Heavens then. It does not hurt to have a divine caster in the group.

AC 18/12/16 HP 19/19 F+4 R+2 W+0 Init+2 Per+6

Look forward to playing with an Oracle of Heavens. (This may require some adjustments to Marduzi's inclination to go charging into battle) I've tried to get an Oracle of Heavens off the ground twice in Curse of the Crimson Throne and the campaign died both times. Glad you're sticking with a good face class. This crew is hurting for Charisma :)

Ruhk - Yeah, I know you're up there too, but Asira ought to be our pro. Curious, what type of fighting are you planning to focus on? Curious how you, Marduzi and Mei will be working together in combat. I've gone with Paired Opportunists so far for my Teamwork feat, but I could go in different directions depending on our style.

I am updating Asira to an Oracle of Heavens, hopefully I will have her up later.

Con bonus, not full score :)

Sorry if I was unclear, For example a Fighter with a con of 14 would have 12hp to start the game with :)

You are right, judging from the backgrounds, Marduzi and Asira should definetley know each other.

I'll get the gear and HP updated ASAP.

Mei has been away training for the last few years, so I'd see her as like the old high-school friend who went away for college, and has just got back. Still friends, but not really close any more, and needing to rebuild those bonds.

Marduzi, on a meta-gaming note I'm keen to try out some teamwork feats as we progress. Never played with them yet, so let me know if you have any ideas.

Alright, I know we're still working out some character details but I've placed up the game thread since the first scene is pure role playing.

Male Magus 1 - HP 11/11 | AC 15 T 13 FF 12 | Ft +4 Rf +2 Wi +1 | Init +2 | Perc +4 |

Right, that should do it for traits, they must have got lost when I updated the character last, sorry about that.

Male Magus 1 - HP 11/11 | AC 15 T 13 FF 12 | Ft +4 Rf +2 Wi +1 | Init +2 | Perc +4 |

Marduzi: Well, I have not given it much thought, I like to mold my characters after what happens around them, so he could easily go anyway depending on the campaign.

AC 18/12/16 HP 19/19 F+4 R+2 W+0 Init+2 Per+6

Ruhk - Gotcha

I think I'm going to stick with Paired Opportunists at Level 1. Basically, I can grant this to the rest of you as a standard action (which will really only make sense for Ruhk and Mei).

Paired Opportunists
Whenever you are adjacent to an ally who also has this feat, you receive a +4 circumstance bonus on attacks of opportunity against creatures that you both threaten. Enemies that provoke attacks of opportunity from your ally also provoke attacks of opportunity from you so long as you threaten them (even if the situation or an ability would normally deny you the attack of opportunity). This does not allow you to take more than one attack of opportunity against a creature for a given action.

Combat Reflexes and Outflank also work together well with this.

In case anyone missed it, you can jump to our games thread by hitting the "Gameplay" tab at the top of the page, its a newer feature added onto the website semi-recently. Its the reason I didnt hotlink the game thread.

Doh - didn't think to look there. Thanks Jörmungandr, I'll jump right in!

Not a problem :)

I think I finished Asira ruleswise. Still have to type the description, but that shouldn't take to long. Will do it when I get home from work this evening (Yesterday the forum lost my complete posting of Asira's stats once and I had to retype all the data. Should have typed and saved it in word before posting it to her profile... ;-) )

Hey guys I'll be away for a couple days over the weekend with no internet access. I'll try to get Mei hooked up with the crew and tagging along before I leave - don't want her to get left out, she's just a bit shy :)

Not a problem, if the scene progresses past the current setting I'll make sure you're able to continue on with everyone.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Thanks J.

It really seems that we all are somehow connected to Koya ;-)

Sorry, its been a busy day, I'll post once I awaken guys

AC 18/12/16 HP 19/19 F+4 R+2 W+0 Init+2 Per+6

NP Jörmungandr. I usually have a good amount of time on the weekends, but I need to be getting some writing done for Open Design and I'm running a PFS group tomorrow, so it may be a little sporatic this weekend.

I think Ruhk is the only one without a direct Niska/Koya connection and he has lived in Sandpoint all his life so he would certainly know them.

So it is not so much a stretch to go out adventuring together when we are at least a little bit familiar with each other...

I think this can lead to a better party cohesion than with complete strangers...

As always weeksends are always slow even for me :P

Also my local weather doesn't help, it was 40oC yesterday afternoon and its 8oC now :(

If no ones particularly fussed I'll shift the story forward to the next morning in a few hours :)

AC 18/12/16 HP 19/19 F+4 R+2 W+0 Init+2 Per+6

I'm good moving it forward. Let's go hunt some goblins :)

Warning: blatant self promotion follows.

The entries for Round 2 of RPG Superstar 2012 are up. Please visit my organisation, the Stormsworn Company, and let me know what you think. The rest of the competition is all decided by public voting, so please consider me for one of your eight votes. Many thanks!

AC 18/12/16 HP 19/19 F+4 R+2 W+0 Init+2 Per+6

Will - Congrats on your selection and good luck in this round.

Hope you're ok Jörmungandr. Definitely hoping to keep this going.

Male Magus 1 - HP 11/11 | AC 15 T 13 FF 12 | Ft +4 Rf +2 Wi +1 | Init +2 | Perc +4 |

Yes, I have a good feeling about our group, I would hate to see it fold.

Yes, it would be a shame if it folds...

We can give it some time. Maybe Jörmungandr had something come up and it's more important than giving us a head's up. I hope everything is okay with him.

Let's hope that everything is ok with himm then.

AC 18/12/16 HP 19/19 F+4 R+2 W+0 Init+2 Per+6

That's what I'm hoping too. Sent him a PM yesterday hoping things were ok and letting him know that I was sure we'd be fine pausing for a bit or going to a slower post rate if he needed it.

Male Magus 1 - HP 11/11 | AC 15 T 13 FF 12 | Ft +4 Rf +2 Wi +1 | Init +2 | Perc +4 |

Yes, better slow down or pause rather than have it fold.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Thanks Marduzi. Yeah, agree this is a nice group and I hope we get to continue. I'm sure J will be back when he can.

AC 18/12/16 HP 19/19 F+4 R+2 W+0 Init+2 Per+6

Just checking in. Nothing from J in the PM inbox yet either. Good to see Mei and Ruhk keeping up the roleplay.

I really like the dynamic of this group, but if Jörmungandr isn't back in a week, I'm bowing out. Hope you all understand.

AC 18/12/16 HP 19/19 F+4 R+2 W+0 Init+2 Per+6

Yep, I understand. Hoping he comes back.

Let's hope all together. I hope for him, that nothing serious happened.

Male Magus 1 - HP 11/11 | AC 15 T 13 FF 12 | Ft +4 Rf +2 Wi +1 | Init +2 | Perc +4 |

That would be ideal.
But if not, maybe we should consider looking for a new Gm rather than bowing out?

AC 18/12/16 HP 19/19 F+4 R+2 W+0 Init+2 Per+6

I definitely agree with that plan.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

I am considering picking up the GM reigns for this. Not sure yet as I don't want to promise and not deliver, and I have RPGSS, work, and a couple of other PBP commitments.

But considering.

AC 18/12/16 HP 19/19 F+4 R+2 W+0 Init+2 Per+6

Wow, if J can't come back that would be awesome Will. If you're borderline on things, I'd be willing to see if you and I could make a deal to swap back and forth as GM. Alternate books or something.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Cool! I don't want to jump the gun on J, and I won't make any decision before Monday next week at the earliest.

GM sharing might be a fine idea.

AC 18/12/16 HP 19/19 F+4 R+2 W+0 Init+2 Per+6

Just checking in. Still plan to give this another day or two, but willing to co-GM with Will if no sign of J. Has not replied to my PM or posted in any other games since the 30th.
