Ha! All good :)

I think combat is rolling along pretty nicely. Feel better James.

No need to strain yourself, take it easy.

My apologies, everyone. Due to some unexpected and unpleasant surprises, work has been kicking my arse for the last couple of weeks. I haven't had much time to log in and contribute to the games during the day and haven't had the energy to stare at the computer screen in the evenings. I'm taking some time off after Thanksgiving. Hopefully it'll allow me the chance to recovery my momentum and a small portion of my sanity. In the meantime, feel free to autobot my PC if I'm taking too long to respond.


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

Okay, no problem. I'll update the thread when I have time later.

Cool! :)

Another question of your preference for combat- I personally prefer to wrap up the round in one summary post but I can understand how your actions ultimately impact each others'. Would you prefer I try to respond to each action post? Just with "<insert PC> misses" or "<insert NPC> fails their save"?

I'm happy with a summary, if the others actions will impact mine I'll ask for a point of clarification/quick status :)


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Agree with Shifty. The summaries are a fun read.


Another vote for the summaries. As Shifty said, we can always ask for clarification if needed.


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone that celebrates it! I will have a short update soon since I'm posting from my phone.

I'll be away on business again beginning tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon and returning Friday. Please DMPC me as needed.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Man, I already miss power attacking with my great axe, why did I think a bow and Arrow would be as fun?!? Haha.

Thanks James, you too!


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

Update tonight! I keep saying that but I mean it!


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

Update tonight and I will do the rolls for Oren- unless any of you want to handle it. Spoiler- I think Auron may have fallen off.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Should we stick a fork in this one?


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

Sorry I've not posted an update in a while. Busy at work before the holidays and now I've been sick for the last week. I was determined not to post another excuse without actually posting an update instead and I really just haven't been on the boards so much. Give me a little time to re-read the thread and the adventure and we'll keep going.

I am a little concerned that the rest of the AP looks like wall-to-wall dungeon crawls and I'm not sure how well that will work out.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

All good James, whatever you want to do works for me. Hope everybody had a happy new year!


Yep Happy New Year all!

On a side note, I will be away for a month starting 11JAN. Finally that distant date on the far end of the calendar is not real distant!


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

Happy New Year, everybody! I'm hoping to have an update tonight- failing that, an update tomorrow. Thanks for bearing with me and for a great game so far, looking forward to 2013.


Happy New Year!


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Hey James, I don't mean to be a pain in the butt, but would you mind if I changed Kua back into a melee character? It feels kinda weird standing back using a bow. I would just switch out his feats and swap str and dex, if you were cool with it. Nothing too drastic.


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

I have exactly zero beefs with that.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Awesome. All done! I swapped my two feats back to power attack and cleave. All of my skills and other derived stuff should be updated from swapping str and dex too.

Heading away THIS FRIDAY, and should be back around mid Feb.

Will be posting until I depart tho!


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

Just got word from Wander Weir that he's not going to be able to play anymore, so I guess Oren will be gone after this section. I'll have an update tonight most likely.


OK see you all in a month!


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Have a good trip Shifty!


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

Hey everybody, just checking in. It's been a rough week at work, so I haven't had a chance to update. I also feel like the fight is really dragging, so I may just fast forward through it and get to a meatier confrontation.

Also managed to wipe out 3/5 of my home group and they decided they want to go ahead with Skull and Shackles instead of staging a rescue for the two petrified characters. So it looks like I have some spreadsheets to make!

Hope everyone's doing well!

Haha, did you TPK them with Shattered Star?


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

It was a home-brewed campaign in Varisia, actually. They fought a dracolisk in the caves under Dragon's Punchbowl trying to get the dragon's hoard and the dwarf monk and OP paladin were turned to stone on some unlucky rolls. The cleric was out that week, so it fell to the half-orc bard and the dwarf ranger to finish it off- got him down to 8 hp before he dissolved the ranger with his breath. The bard and the cleric were still alive, but I guess everyone felt like moving on.


Back!

All very quiet, we still on?


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

I'm sorry to say that I think I need to close this one down. My posting time has gotten more and more limited and I'm not really feeling the adventure path this time around- even if there are a lot of cool moments and things, every chapter comes down to a multi-level dungeon crawl and it's not really playing to the play-by-post format's strengths.

Again, very sorry to pull the plug on this and I'm really grateful to you all for giving me your time and attention.


That's a shame, but fair call :)

Thanks for running the part you did though, and I understand what you mean about the format.

Cheers mate!

Shifty


No worries, James. Totally understand the time crunch issue. I had a blast with Godsmouth Heresy. Please keep us in mind if/when you decide to run something else.

Best regards!

Sorry to hear, but I understand. Thanks, James!

Just curious - have you ever considered reviving your old Unity of Rings game? That was a heck of a lot of fun, and not very dungeon-based.


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

I hadn't thought about it. If/when I do try again I was thinking of doing something with Kaer Maga again or in Ustalav. Maybe when things calm down a little. And keep your eyes peeled at the Kobold Press releases in a few months for a trapsmith piece I'm doing illustrations for!


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Out of curiosity, what's Unity of Rings?


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

It was a Planescape pbp I started 4 or 5 years ago- the first of my long string of games that have fallen apart for various reasons.

Wow, that's weird. When I first started to hangout on these message boards I was curious about play by posts, so I picked one that looked cool and read the first several pages of it. I remember getting super excited because it was based in Sigil and I was a big Planscape fan. Turns out, it was Unity of Rings. The last couple of years that we've played together, I never made the connection.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

On different note, I've had a lot of fun playing with all of you and I would hate to see us all go our separate ways. Anyone else interested in running a game? I wouldn't mind doing it, if nobody else wanted to.

@James, I know you're a little too busy to run something, but would you want to join another game as a player?


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

Yeah, I could do that. I'm a player in a few other games.


I'd definitely be on board if you wanted to run something, Jam.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Cool! Well if others are into it too, I'd be happy to run something. What are folks into playing? I've got all of the APs. Rein of Winter looks pretty cool too but I don't have the first issue yet.

Qadira

male human

Good deal; thanks for volunteering, Jam! Yeah, I'd definitely be in for something. I'm already in a Savage Tide, Legacy of Fire, and Kingmaker game, so my preference would be one of the other ones. Guess if I had to vote, I'd rank my top 4 this way:

1. Carrion Crown
2. Rise of the Runelords
3. Skull & Shackles
4. Serpent's Skull

I'd be up for Reign of Winter, too, if that's the way everyone wanted to go. But I don't wanna force you to have to spend the cash if you weren't going to get it.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

No problem on Rein of Winter, I essentially have a subscription through my FLGS. It'll just take me a couple days longer to read since I don't have it in my hands yet.


Thanks for offering to run something, Jam!

I'm currently in several AP PbP's: Age of Worms, Rise of the Runelords, Council of Thieves, two Kingmakers, and Carrion Crown; plus a Serpent's Skull game that's just died out near the beginning of the second book. I would definitely be up for Reign of Winter, Jade Regent, Curse of the Crimson Throne, Second Darkness, or Skull & Shackles.

Oooh... Skull & Shackles... I could re-purpose Sister Mara as a pirate!

Of course, with Reign of Winter, I could re-purpose her as a Winter Witch...


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Hey no problem, I'm excited to try it out. I ran a pbp for about a month for some RL friends of mine a while ago, but that is as far as my PBP GMing experience goes.

Okay, so far we've got Skull & Shackles and Rein of Winter as the front runners. I almost think the Rein of Winter will be the only AP that none of have played so far, since the rest got pared down so quickly. I'll wait until Monday to hear from Shifty and Randall, then I'll PM them to see if they're still interested, since they may have stopped following the thread.

I could definitely see Sister Mara's avatar working for a pirate or a winter witch though.


Male(s) 27 Ducks in a James suit Duck 27/ Expert 5

Personally, I'm starting Skull and Shackles now and just started playing in one. So, I'd prefer Reign of Winter if you're into doing that one- I can also avoid looking at my copy of it to maintain the surprise.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Okay, great! Rein of Winter it is unless there are any objections.
