Megan's Kingmaker PbP

Game Master Megan Robertson

A game of Paizo's Kingmaker AP, with some of the best players it has been my pleasure to DM!
Campaign Map


701 to 750 of 1,080 << first < prev | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | next > last >>

Male Half-elf Cleric 5

Darn just read the description for Speak with Dead again and it says that it will not work on a corpse that been turned into an undead creature.

Megan, before I try casting this spell I'll let you decide if I can cast it after we have caused them to cease being undead.

In the mean time, Calinder will just examine the now defeated zombies for any clues to who they were.

Andoran

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

You are not completely certain if it will work or not, but it's probably worth a try. What did your instructor say...? 'Know that to speak with the deceased, it is necessary that they be devoid of the taint of undeath' - well, they are not undead any more, that's for certain!


Male Human Witch 5

I thought that line prevents you from compelling an undead to answer questions, while in that state of being undead....

Lich: "You can never destroy me!"

Cal: casts speak with dead
"Where is your phylactery?"

Lich fails save and the spell is abused!

Having the spell work after the threat is slain is not so abusive. Hard to tell for certain from the spell.....


Elf Ranger (Guide, Skirmisher)

An inventive abuse of the spell, for certain. Unlikely to work, however, because the current location of the lich's phylactery has probably changed since the body's death.

Nonetheless, it's a good point. I think this is clearly an area where the DM will have to rule.


male Half-orc Paladin 2 HP: 13/18 AC: 19/10/19 saves: F7+, R3, W5

Looking at the map I think we went through hexes c3, d3, and d2. Tried looking it up with the search and it seems that we went through them but didn't really find anything useful.


Elf Ranger (Guide, Skirmisher)

That sounds right - is that where we found the dead trapper and met the fey pair?


Elf Ranger (Guide, Skirmisher)

You were right - here's the post: Gorguk's plan through those hexes

I will update the map and send it to our fair DM.

Andoran

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

My hair is grey, actually! Yes, I have received the latest map, thank you, and will stick it up as soon as I get around to it...


Male Vudran bard (magician) 2/ninja 3

I've got grey hair too... more than I would like since I'm only 42.


Elf Ranger (Guide, Skirmisher)

Yeah, there's no need to go into such things, but I was going gray in college - and that's been a year or two ago. Now it's OK, but at 20, I wasn't very excited about it.


Male Vudran bard (magician) 2/ninja 3

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!


Male Human Witch 5

Thanks!

Glad tidings to you!
(I am going to have to use that in game some time)


Elf Ranger (Guide, Skirmisher)

Indeed. Here's hoping everyone has a great Thanksgiving.


male Half-orc Paladin 2 HP: 13/18 AC: 19/10/19 saves: F7+, R3, W5

Agreed. Happy turkey day to all.

In game Gorguk is ready to move on since they are just burying the bodies.


Male Half-elf Cleric 5

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

I have to travel for my new job at the beginning of the week. Hopefully I'll have internet access so I can post, but if you don't hear from me, I'll just be assisting Gorguk.

And as Gorguk said, just need to bury some bodies and then we can continue.


Elf Ranger (Guide, Skirmisher)

Congratulations on your new job. Something to be thankful for, indeed.

Andoran

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Yeah, well done Calinder! (I have an interview Monday...)


Male Half-elf Cleric 5

Yes, I am very thankful for the new job, and thank you for congratulating me.

I just wish I could do more to find a new job for my co-worker that is also being let go. Hopefully, now that I have left, it will give him more time to find a new job.

And congratulations and god luck on the interview Megan. I learned this year that just getting an interview is a great accomplishment. Job hunting has certainly changed in the last ten years and it was a bit of a steep learning curve, at least for me that is.

I'll keep my fingers crossed and I'll be sending good vibes your way, and hopefully we'll be hearing soon that you are newly employed.

Andoran

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Thanks, Calinder. Got an e-mail last night from a recruiter about another interview on Wednesday too!

But first I have to prepare a lesson for Church tomorrow. (The Relief Society/Priesthood one, for the Saints here present.)


Male Half-elf Cleric 5

Well that's great, hopefully one or the other will make you an offer.

I'll be missing church this week due to travel, but I'm really excited to be starting my new job. I'll actually be learning some new things and expanding my skill set, which will be really great.


male Half-orc Paladin 2 HP: 13/18 AC: 19/10/19 saves: F7+, R3, W5

Are we waiting on anything to proceed?


Male Human Witch 5

DM and resolution of staglords body....into the river.


Elf Ranger (Guide, Skirmisher)

Megan's interviews this week take precedence. I think the second one was yesterday, so here's hoping they went well and she has time for a little distraction - ie, us!

Andoran

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Another one today! Waiting to hear about the first 2, they both had other people to see...


Elf Ranger (Guide, Skirmisher)

Good luck!

We're ready when you are.


Male Half-elf Cleric 5

I'm back from my new employee orientation in Long Beach, and now I'm trying to settle into the new job. Brain was pretty much mush after today, and formal job specific training starts tomorrow.

Megan, good luck with the interview, and we'll just sit tight and cheer ya on while we wait.

Andoran

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Hope all goes well with you, Calinder, and that you are able to settle into the new rhythm easily...

As for me, I have a day at home. Where's my Kingmaker AP.... :)


Male Vudran bard (magician) 2/ninja 3

My apologies for the lack of activity lately. The situation with my grandmother has taken a turn for the worse. Between her stroke, renal disease, and now pneumonia, things aren't looking very good.

I'm not backing out of the pbp. If anything, I need the outlet now more than ever. It's more along the lines that I'll be posting less often as the situation continues.

Andoran

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

I'll remember your grandmother in my prayers, Lothar. Come by the game as and when you can, you have more important things to attend to right now.


Male Human Witch 5

I was thinking if we establish Oleg's as some type of important location, then it is not hard to make either Oleg or Svetlana into part of the new kingdom.

I am torn between Oleg's and the staglords fort as a base of operations.


Elf Ranger (Guide, Skirmisher)

Oleg's is within the planned territory of this kingdom, I believe, so I don't think there would be any argument with that idea.

I think Oleg's is a natural point of contact with Brevoy/Rostland, but I'm not sure about it as a base - that might be an unwelcome intrusion for Oleg and Svetlana.

I think the way to approach this is to ask what are the characteristics we need to see in our base?


male Half-orc Paladin 2 HP: 13/18 AC: 19/10/19 saves: F7+, R3, W5

I picture Oleg and svetlana as pioneers in the wilderness. Not as people starting a community of their own. Thus I am thinking staglord's fort for defense and central location or Erastil's temple for us religious types. Good luck Lothar with the traveling dignitary.

Andoran

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Oleg originally set up his outpost as a way to 'get away from it all' yet continue to trade sufficient to earn his living. He's OK with being a jumping-off point for colonists but doesn't want a township growing up around his compound.


Male Vudran bard (magician) 2/ninja 3

I concur with Gorguk and Rhasa in that Oleg's trading post shouldn't form the foundation of a base. With that said, I do think that Oleg should play a much bigger role in what the Wardens do from this point on. We have to consider that he is as much a go between for us and those already in the region. He is a known commodity where as we're still in the process of establishing ourselves. And we as a group wouldn't be able to do that as easily without his help.

If establishing a community is an inevitable process, then looking to Oleg as a civic leader will be an inevitable outcome as well. Especially when he already is one in this wilderness. All we'd be doing is making it official. And its not like he'd have to give up his business; indeed it would be to our benefit for him to continue running the trading post (I don't think he wouldn't trust anyone else to do it in his absence).


male Half-orc Paladin 2 HP: 13/18 AC: 19/10/19 saves: F7+, R3, W5

Looking at the roles in the kingdom guide, we could have Oleg be our treasurer and Svetlana be our diplomat as they are the people that everyone will see traveling into the new area. This way they have say and can keep their area sepae yet still be instrumental in the goings around them.

Andoran

Hello! Woke up 1 January to a dead computer, it has taken until now to fix & rebuild it.

So, back to the Greenbelt... :)


Male Human Witch 5

Great you are back!


Elf Ranger (Guide, Skirmisher)

I have received a gift horse and, rather than looking it in the mouth, I'm going to go for a ride. I will be far from home and computer for the next ten days or so. Please bot Rhasadilara in my absence.

Talk to you soon!

Andoran

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

For the Saints among us: got summoned by the Bishopric this morning - have been called & set apart as an Adult Sunday School teacher! Still a bit gobsmacked...


Male Vudran bard (magician) 2/ninja 3

Congratulations!

Gobsmacked? British turns of phrase always fascinate me... Gob = head, right?

Have fun, Rhasa....

I've been undergoing a move. With my grandmother deceased, my mother had been hard-pressed to keep the house that she had been living in. Since my wife and I had been the only ones to really look after her, we were given the opportunity to settle in. Never realized how much stuff we had accumulated over the years (we moved fully on New Year's and we're still figuring out where to put things).

Andoran

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Ah, two nations separated by a common language!

Gob = mouth, the expression literally means 'hit in the mouth' but is normally used to refer to those times when you feel your mouth falling open in astonishment, when you literally gawp at what you are hearing or seeing...


Male Human Witch 5

Interesting I read that as literally "God smacked" as in smacked by God.

I am thinking that we should sweep the rest of the book 1 area, before heading into the book 2 areas.

Unless the last map I looked at is off a bit.


male Half-orc Paladin 2 HP: 13/18 AC: 19/10/19 saves: F7+, R3, W5

Agree with you Barnabus. I don't want to start a new kingdom and explore new areas when we have unexplored areas right off of our border. Wouldn't do at all to have a tribe of giants one hex away from us and we never knew about it.

Andoran

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

You may well be right, Barnabus. It did feel that way. The blessing I received when set apart was all about being empowered to speak with authority when teaching.


Male Half-elf Cleric 5

Just realized it's been a month since I last posted. I'm still here and I've been following along. I'm just really busy with the new job. It's been great so far but at times has been completely overwhelming. In fact, I'm working from home this evening.

Calinder is of course still just puttering around the fort.

Andoran

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Glad to hear it is going well, Calinder... but don't overdo it. The aim is a balanced life of which work is just a part.

Just had a call from my Sunday School President: he will be teaching this week and next, but wants me to take the one after that as he will be away on business. Eeek!


Male Half-elf Cleric 5

You'll do fine, just start preparing now, don't wait until the last minute. The most important lesson I have learned from all the classes I have taught at church is that the more you get the class involved in a discussion about the subject you are teaching, the easier it is to teach.

I dislike nothing more than standing in front of a class that will not participate, so I end up just standing there lecturing. Of course I'm not comfortable standing in front of a group of people to start with so when things don't go as I'd like it to, then it's so much worse.

You were teaching before if I remember right. It's much the same, just a bigger class and a slightly different subject. Anyway, good luck.

Also, the church has some good materials for learning how to teach and lots of great teaching aides. Talk to your Sunday School President and the librarians in your ward or stake, they can help you out.

Andoran

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Thank you, Calinder. I already teach in Relief Society, as well as having been a teacher by trade... and I have the Sunday School Manual, and stuff... and most of all the Holy Spirit.

The gift horse in question was a ticket to a Caribbean cruise on the Carnival Magic. We had several days at sea and stopped at Montego Bay (Jamaica), Georgetown (Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands), and Cozumel (Mexico). We got to snorkel out to a shipwreck and hike to (and climb up!) a Mayan pyramid.

I know some of you are much more traveled than I am, so this might not sound like a big deal for you, but this was an absolutely amazing experience for someone that had never even been to the seashore. It's going to be very hard to return to reality...


male Half-orc Paladin 2 HP: 13/18 AC: 19/10/19 saves: F7+, R3, W5

Happy for you Rhasa. I Am stuck here in 4degree F weather trying not to get frostbite when I go out to start the car. Good luck readjusting when you get back.
