Male Human Fighter

Repeating Crossbow


Make Human 1/ Warlock (Hidden as Wizard)

Figured that's what it was (though I'm not quite sure how you and Silaquay are affording all this expensive gear at 1st level, but I digress) but it still wouldn't give you 3 shots in one round bro, unless you were high enough level to have iterative attacks, and even then you'd still have to roll for each shot. Don't mean to be a pain, but the rules are the rules, no? Otherwise, if we're gonna play without them, I think next round I'll have Lomar cast an acidic, electrified, fireball! Yeah, I'd love to see them goblins stop That! ; D


Male Human

on the repeating crossbow rules. it looks like it lets you fire shots and reload as a free action.

the rules on that get muddy (not the barbarian). looks like you would need wf crossbow, point blank shot, and rapid reload to accomplish what the crossbow does. and the feat rapid reload, gave a -2 to strike on both attacks.

I think the repeater functions as all those feats and still grants the -2 to strike. so ill give you 2 attacks at a -2 to hit.

as for the gold piece and equipment question. wareagle had given a 1000gp limit on his character rules.

oh and one other thing. the goblins arent visible yet. they havent made the entrance to the courtyard, or the gate even. i was waiting to see of anyone else was going to take ambush positions


Male Human

but the acid lightning fireball sounded cool. metamagic feat


Make Human 1/ Warlock (Hidden as Wizard)

Yes, that is correct, basically the repeating crossbow allows one to bypass getting all of those feats (GREAT deal for only 400gp and has left many crossbow specialists and pis$ed as $#$%), But, you still need to actually have more than one attack per round to be able to attack more than once a round with it. And we each got to start at level 1 with 1,000gp?? My bad then, as I totally missed that (and have some more shopping to do!!) Anyhoo, I haven't posted yet as I'm a little confused as to what exactly is going on. We're...somewhere on that map, on some goblins are somewhere about to do something? Does that about cover it? ; )


Male Human

the party followed siloquay back to the entrance of the keep, when she arrived and informed them of the goblins untimely arrival.

the party stopped about 15 ft short of the old gates (square Q26 on the map). the party is on the east side of the entrance. the gobs are loudly marching towards the complex. they sound very very close at this point.

and shop away my brother. i wish i was on your end with a 1k limit to start. my tarloc was hooked up, until i changed him to dm status


M Gnome 1 Cleric Of Brigh

Hmm I missed teh 1000gp thing too...yeah more money to spend :)


Male Human

the first of the goblin troops finally come tromping through the entrance to the gate. a loud voice from the rear shouts:

speak goblin:
"spread out and find these supposed heroes and destroy them!"

the goblins immediately start dispersing in random direction.

perception checks for 3 goblins immediately headed your way

1d20 - 4 ⇒ (1) - 4 = -3
1d20 - 4 ⇒ (5) - 4 = 1
1d20 - 4 ⇒ (4) - 4 = 0


Male Human

g#&~*%n muthas are blind as a bat.

thru the fog they cant see the party and are headed your way, clueless of your presence. they are about 15ft away and closing.


M Gnome 1 Cleric Of Brigh

FireSnap seeing Goblins Closing will firebolt Gobbie number 2
Range Touch1d20 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 2 = 14
Damage1d6 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4


Male Human Fighter

Taking aim at the farthest goblin,Noran fires a bolt. 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (9) + 5 = 14


Male Human Fighter

Crossbow 1d10 ⇒ 7


Make Human 1/ Warlock (Hidden as Wizard)

Stealth: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (10) + 1 = 11
Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (13) + 6 = 19

Crouching down and doing his best to stay hidden, Lomar tries to seek out the goblin leader. If he finds the Goblin leader, he blasts him
Ranged Touch attack: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (9) + 2 = 11
Blast damage: 1d6 + 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (6) + (1) + 1 = 8

If he can't find the goblin leader, he instead casts sleep on the closest group of four goblins he can find. Will save DC14


Male Human

Firesnap takes the initiative and firebolts the goblin in the center of the group approaching right in the chest. the bolt badly chars the flimsy leather armor, and the skinny goblins flimsy chest underneath. the creature screams incoherently in pain.

noran fire a crossbolt bolt at the same creature but the shot is a little wide.

lomar crouches down low behind a very small tuft of reeds. scanning the battlefield for signs of a leader he sees none.

so instead he casts a sleep spell on the approaching goblins and another one a few feet back.

1d20 - 1 ⇒ (15) - 1 = 14
1d20 - 1 ⇒ (12) - 1 = 11
1d20 - 1 ⇒ (1) - 1 = 0
1d20 - 1 ⇒ (4) - 1 = 3


Male Human

defender still win on a tie roll in pathfinder? referring to gobby number one up there.

3 of the goblins, succumbing to the spell tumble to the hard ground in a heap. all snoring contentidly.

after the scream the compound is eerily silent.

the only noise is the last goblin, who hurridly charges the party yelling in his vile tongue.

speak goblin:
i have the intruders! I will take there heads before any of you get a chance! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAH!!!!!


Male Human

then another voice, a commanding voice yells also

speak goblin:
you heard him you IDIOTS! destroy the intruders NOW! charge!

all the sudden the gobs start screaming and you can hear there footsteps start almost as one. the mist is still hampering visibility in the compound out to about 35 or 40 ft.

these are the four currently within view. ive got a -2 on ranged attacks because of the mist. if not everyone posts we will not fight all the goblins. too many for the few that are posting. good luck


Male Human

siloquay moves into position near noran, and fires her crossbow into the seared goblin 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (7) + 2 = 9 ; 1d8 ⇒ 4


Male Human Fighter

Seeing Silaquay armed with crossbow,Noran swings his behind him,and removes his urgrosh from his back and readies himself for battle.


Male Human Fighter

Using the mist as cover,Noran swings at the nearest goblin.1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11
Urgrosh1d83 ⇒ 53


M Gnome 1 Cleric Of Brigh

When its his turn FireSnap will firebolt The Non-Sleeping Gobbie
Range Touch:1d20 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6
Damage:1d6 + 1 ⇒ (6) + 1 = 7


Male Human

Noran the only goblin visible that is not asleep, he takes a swing but the goblin avoids the attack.

firesnapp fires (hehe) a flaming shot, but it harmlessly sail over the goblins head.

Now goblins are starting to appear out of the mist. you can finally see the larger leader of the goblins. it is a hobgoblin. the remainder of his troops consists of 14 goblins counting the 3 sleepers.

he speaks in a voice loud enough to be heard by everyone

speak goblin:
eliminate these fools

Noran takes another swing,then steps back into defensive position as more goblins emerge from the mist.1d20 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7 Urgrosh1d8 ⇒ 1


M Brownin (Half Pale Skin/Half Dark Skin) Healer 8/Merchant 3

Sorry for my absence. And am thinking, if no one else seems to want to continue this game except Firesnap and we three newcomers to it, perhaps it's time to put out requests for more players to join it? Also, lets try and keep track of the rounds and other battle stats to keep things organized, ya? For a great example of good battle posting check out THIS

Round ?? Initiative 4
hp 11/11; AC 15/12T/13FF/ 13CMD; +2F/+2R/+3W
Buffs: none
Effects: none

As the large band of goblins makes itself visible, Lomar concentrates his blast on the hobgoblin leader
Initiative:1d20 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4
Ranged touch 30': 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (7) + 2 = 9
Damage: 1d6 + 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (5) + (6) + 1 = 12

And then steps back as far as he can, still trying to remain stealthy and making it as difficult as possible for the goblins to reach him.
Stealth: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (12) + 1 = 13


M Gnome 1 Cleric Of Brigh

Getting more players be fine by me...we barely started here...
And if we are doing inits

Hps:10 AC:16

Init:1d20 + 1 ⇒ (11) + 1 = 12
Cursing his bad aim FireSnap will try again..
Range Touch:1d20 + 2 ⇒ (10) + 2 = 12
Damage:1d6 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4


M Gnome 1 Cleric Of Brigh

those comics must really be keeping the DM busy and others too maybe


Make Human 1/ Warlock (Hidden as Wizard)

Could be...? ; )


M Gnome 1 Cleric Of Brigh

*chirp* *chirp* *chirp*


Make Human 1/ Warlock (Hidden as Wizard)

Sigh, seems another game is to go the way of the Dodo. Some PC's just seem to get no luck. This'll be Lomar's third game to go belly up.


female human preist

1d20 + 3 ⇒ (13) + 3 = 16; 1d8 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 = 5 Silaquay uses her crossbow as she ducks beneath some mist


Male Human

i was a little upset that only the few were posting. but this will do, if you guys would like to continue


Male Human

amazing! lomar finally missed a shot!

Siloquay fires her cross bow at the approaching goblins. the bolt flies true and is embedded in a goblin shoulder. he grimaces in pain but somehow manages to keep his feet.

Lomar lets a blast of fire off at the hobgoblin leader, but the aim of the blast is off. the hobgoblins smiles at lomar and speaks in the common tongue I will Gut you human scum!

firesnap also fires an errant shot at the enemy before there advance begins.

As the goblins close on the party,Noran feints a downward chop to his right,then spins reversing his swing at goblin to his left. 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 5 = 9 Urgrosh1d8 ⇒ 1
