Tactical Forest Map

Here's a spot for us all to talk and discuss things Out of Character, should we decide to go with the paizo.com forums here.


Kobold Alchemist 1 (Init +3 | Per +3, SM -1 | F +2, R +5, W +0 | AC 17 (t 14, ff 13) | CMD 11)

Generic NPC stands up and looks around.

Perception: 1d20 ⇒ 12

He sees nothing but empty whiteness.

Where am I?, he thinks to himself.

"Helllooooooo!" Generic shouts into the emptiness.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 2 [Init +3 | Per +7, SM +0 | F +5, R +1, W +0 | AC 14 (T 11, FF 13) | CMD 17 | Speed 40' | Darkvision 60' | HP 25]

How do you want our YAPCG character sheets?


Tactical Forest Map

Like you have in your profile is fine, but if you could make it a pdf instead of the file that'd allow me to access it on my phone should the need arise.

The others will be logging on in a few days, hopefully.


Male Dwarf Tower Sheild Specialist (Level 2) [Init+2 | Per:+1 | SM:+1 | F:+5 R:+2 W:+1 | AC: 24 (T:11 FF:23) | CMD:17 | Speed:20ft | HP:20]

Hey, checking out how posting works.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 2 [Init +3 | Per +7, SM +0 | F +5, R +1, W +0 | AC 14 (T 11, FF 13) | CMD 17 | Speed 40' | Darkvision 60' | HP 25]

Other players! I'm excited! I'm also still in CO, where I have spotty coverage but nice views, so daily posts won't continue until I'm fully back Monday.


Tactical Forest Map

Still haven't heard anything concrete from our 3rd. But if I were a betting GM, I'd be placing my my imaginary gold on a Human Paladin of Iomedae showing up on board...


Tactical Forest Map

By the way, I'll be doing reactive-type rolls for you guys that would just slow down gameplay (like I just did for Linguistics) but I'll try to keep that to a minimum. Let me know if I'm doing that too much and taking away your PC's agency.

And if you didn't know, you can click "Preview" and it will display what your rolls are, that way you don't have to double post. You cannot, however, delete the post and write a new one to get a better roll; it remembers your rolls up to 24 hours.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 2 [Init +3 | Per +7, SM +0 | F +5, R +1, W +0 | AC 14 (T 11, FF 13) | CMD 17 | Speed 40' | Darkvision 60' | HP 25]

lol, we're all going to be a meat head party, this'll be fun!


Male Dwarf Tower Sheild Specialist (Level 2) [Init+2 | Per:+1 | SM:+1 | F:+5 R:+2 W:+1 | AC: 24 (T:11 FF:23) | CMD:17 | Speed:20ft | HP:20]

Haha, yeah, could be entertaining. Hey, question, is this arena fighting thing legal?


Male Dwarf Tower Sheild Specialist (Level 2) [Init+2 | Per:+1 | SM:+1 | F:+5 R:+2 W:+1 | AC: 24 (T:11 FF:23) | CMD:17 | Speed:20ft | HP:20]

We are going to have about 3 useful skills between all 3 of us. Haha


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 2 [Init +3 | Per +7, SM +0 | F +5, R +1, W +0 | AC 14 (T 11, FF 13) | CMD 17 | Speed 40' | Darkvision 60' | HP 25]

Uh, legal? Odie never asked, his boss was in charge of all the booking and paperwork. I mean, nobody was forced into the match if that's what you're asking. Some were even just friendly no-blood matches.


Tactical Forest Map

*Quickly scribbles down good traps, haunts, social encounters, and flying foes to use*

I haven't talked about character death yet but maybe I should...

In other news, I've added a map of Sargava to the Campaign info page, showing where Pridon's Hearth is in relation to the capital Eledar and the rest of civilization. So Pridon's Hearth is basically a colony of a colony, though Sargava is fully independent.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 2 [Init +3 | Per +7, SM +0 | F +5, R +1, W +0 | AC 14 (T 11, FF 13) | CMD 17 | Speed 40' | Darkvision 60' | HP 25]

Apparently, I'm carrying on two conversations at once. Such a skilled barbarian am I!

Also, how about I say "huh" a few more times?


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 2 [Init +3 | Per +7, SM +0 | F +5, R +1, W +0 | AC 14 (T 11, FF 13) | CMD 17 | Speed 40' | Darkvision 60' | HP 25]

@stonewall
The greatsword isn't anything special, just the workaday greatsword Odie had on him when he ran.


Tactical Forest Map

Yeah PbP tends to run over each other sometimes. You just have to go with the flow; it shouldn't be too hard to follow them.


Male Dwarf Tower Sheild Specialist (Level 2) [Init+2 | Per:+1 | SM:+1 | F:+5 R:+2 W:+1 | AC: 24 (T:11 FF:23) | CMD:17 | Speed:20ft | HP:20]

Yeah but stonewall doesn't realize that not everybody has the same level of attachment to their implements that he does.


Male Dwarf Tower Sheild Specialist (Level 2) [Init+2 | Per:+1 | SM:+1 | F:+5 R:+2 W:+1 | AC: 24 (T:11 FF:23) | CMD:17 | Speed:20ft | HP:20]

Wow, I just need to be careful to be explicit who I'm talking to. I just realized it looks like I was talking to Odie about never running from a challenge.


Tactical Forest Map

There will normally not be 3 NPCs all at once too. Plus I assume you'll just shoot first, ask later ;)


Male Dwarf Tower Sheild Specialist (Level 2) [Init+2 | Per:+1 | SM:+1 | F:+5 R:+2 W:+1 | AC: 24 (T:11 FF:23) | CMD:17 | Speed:20ft | HP:20]

Haha, this is making me wish I had gotten the xenophobic trait where I'm only allowed to speak dwarven. That would have been hilarious. I was worried I wouldn't be able to talk to anyone though.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 2 [Init +3 | Per +7, SM +0 | F +5, R +1, W +0 | AC 14 (T 11, FF 13) | CMD 17 | Speed 40' | Darkvision 60' | HP 25]

Yeah, that may have been a bit debilitating with only 3 of us, haha


Tactical Forest Map

The 3rd PC is going to a monk with a vow of silence.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 2 [Init +3 | Per +7, SM +0 | F +5, R +1, W +0 | AC 14 (T 11, FF 13) | CMD 17 | Speed 40' | Darkvision 60' | HP 25]

haha!
Also, it's going to be harder for me to post on the weekends, so just a heads up if I'm radio silence on Saturdays and Sundays.


1 person marked this as a favorite.
Male Human Paladin / 1st Level [Init +2 | Per +1 | SM +5 | F+4 R+2 W+3 | AC 18 (T 12, FF 16) | CMD 16 | Speed 20 | HP 13]

Sorry for the delay. I've been out of town.


Tactical Forest Map

You'll want to make an Alias named your PC's name. Click on your name, and then click on the blue/purple tab Alias (second from left). Then, in that new alias, you can add your stats, etc. like Odie and Stonewall has.

Welcome to the team! I'm so excited!!! I'm using multiple exclamation points!


Male Human Paladin / 1st Level [Init +2 | Per +1 | SM +5 | F+4 R+2 W+3 | AC 18 (T 12, FF 16) | CMD 16 | Speed 20 | HP 13]

Now to catch up on how to do all this.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 2 [Init +3 | Per +7, SM +0 | F +5, R +1, W +0 | AC 14 (T 11, FF 13) | CMD 17 | Speed 40' | Darkvision 60' | HP 25]

Can't sleep, decided to use my time wisely, haha!
Welcome new paladin in shiny armor! There is some stuff in strange places, but it looks like mostly set it once stuff.


Tactical Forest Map

I'm going to hold off on NPC interactions until the other 1 or 2 show up officially. Then once we all do we can land this boat and get the adventure started off proper!

(By "land" I mean "sink to the bottom of the ocean.")


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 2 [Init +3 | Per +7, SM +0 | F +5, R +1, W +0 | AC 14 (T 11, FF 13) | CMD 17 | Speed 40' | Darkvision 60' | HP 25]

Captain Jack style, I like it!


Tactical Forest Map

Also, looking at other PbPs, with regards to combat, don't be afraid to post what you plan on doing even if it's technically "out of order." Each of you will still resolve your actions in the proper order of initiative, but you can say "I move to flank w/ Guy Who Moves Before Me if possible and attack." This will be for people that move before/after the bad guys, of course.

I'm also looking at having you list the current round at the top of each of your posts in combat, and then Spoiler your "status" and list things like what weapon is drawn, spells left, etc. This way it's easier to follow a combat as the days go by, especially as your rage or spells deplete round by round.

Just some ideas. I don't know what kind of character our 4th will be. Any guesses? I'm hoping for a melee focused bruiser, like a Ranger, Bloodrager, Brawler, Cavalier, Slayer, or Swashbuckler. And for race... gnome.


Male Human Paladin / 1st Level [Init +2 | Per +1 | SM +5 | F+4 R+2 W+3 | AC 18 (T 12, FF 16) | CMD 16 | Speed 20 | HP 13]

I see that Odie and Stonewall have their stats showing up next to their avatar on this and other pages. I've entered my stats under my profile. How do I get them to show up next to my avatar? How do I get added to the players and character tab lists?


Male Human Paladin / 1st Level [Init +2 | Per +1 | SM +5 | F+4 R+2 W+3 | AC 18 (T 12, FF 16) | CMD 16 | Speed 20 | HP 13]

Also, how do I join the Second Wave campaign? All I seem to be able to do is post in the discussion tab.


Male Human Paladin / 1st Level [Init +2 | Per +1 | SM +5 | F+4 R+2 W+3 | AC 18 (T 12, FF 16) | CMD 16 | Speed 20 | HP 13]

I see. I had to type this basic stuff out in the class / level box.


Tactical Forest Map

Yes, and you have to post in this discussion as your Alias. You're posting as your regular profile, which doesn't work for some reason. It has to be an alias.


Male Human Paladin / 2nd Level [Init +2 | Per +1 | SM +5 | F+6 R+3 W+5 | AC 19 (T 11, FF 18) | CMD 17 | Speed 20' | HP 25]

Okay. I will try it with this post.
Fingers crossed.


Male Human Paladin / 2nd Level [Init +2 | Per +1 | SM +5 | F+6 R+3 W+5 | AC 19 (T 11, FF 18) | CMD 17 | Speed 20' | HP 25]

Although, I am going to get tired of scrolling up and down as the page of discussion gets longer and longer.


Tactical Forest Map

The Home, End, and Page Up/Down buttons do wonders.


Tactical Forest Map

You're in. Or, dare I say it...

You're all set!

...I'll see myself out.


Male Human Paladin / 2nd Level [Init +2 | Per +1 | SM +5 | F+6 R+3 W+5 | AC 19 (T 11, FF 18) | CMD 17 | Speed 20' | HP 25]

I had to post in the game play tab to get added to the character list. But I lost my stats... I'll have to figure that out tomorrow.


Tactical Forest Map

You'll just have to re-enter them in your Alias instead of your regular Profile. Not too hard with copy paste. Glad you figured it out.


Tactical Forest Map

By all means keep posting, but I wasn't going to enforce the once a day rule until we are all here.

Our 4th is leaning to monk. All meat shields.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 2 [Init +3 | Per +7, SM +0 | F +5, R +1, W +0 | AC 14 (T 11, FF 13) | CMD 17 | Speed 40' | Darkvision 60' | HP 25]

First to die is coming back as a Face!


Male Dwarf Tower Sheild Specialist (Level 2) [Init+2 | Per:+1 | SM:+1 | F:+5 R:+2 W:+1 | AC: 24 (T:11 FF:23) | CMD:17 | Speed:20ft | HP:20]

A face?


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 2 [Init +3 | Per +7, SM +0 | F +5, R +1, W +0 | AC 14 (T 11, FF 13) | CMD 17 | Speed 40' | Darkvision 60' | HP 25]

A front man, a bard, a face for the party.


Male Dwarf Tower Sheild Specialist (Level 2) [Init+2 | Per:+1 | SM:+1 | F:+5 R:+2 W:+1 | AC: 24 (T:11 FF:23) | CMD:17 | Speed:20ft | HP:20]

Ah, as long as its melee, haha.


Male Human Paladin / 2nd Level [Init +2 | Per +1 | SM +5 | F+6 R+3 W+5 | AC 19 (T 11, FF 18) | CMD 17 | Speed 20' | HP 25]

So, Merv Griffin, I'm assuming these discussion threads will continue on forever, or at least until the campaign is complete. Is there a need (and a way) to archive some of the older discussions?


Tactical Forest Map

This discussion thread will last us the entire campaign, correct. It will be available for all eternity (or until paizo shuts down their servers.) There isn't a specific archive function, but you can always search this thread for anything specific. I'm not 100% sure what you mean by archiving older discussions, though.

And please, it's Mervikoth, a word I made up so I would have a consistent handle on any website I went to. I don't design game shows, I design games for show.


Male Dwarf Tower Sheild Specialist (Level 2) [Init+2 | Per:+1 | SM:+1 | F:+5 R:+2 W:+1 | AC: 24 (T:11 FF:23) | CMD:17 | Speed:20ft | HP:20]

ETA on our 4th is hopefully Friday.


Tactical Forest Map

Awesome! I'll give everyone the weekend to finish any roleplaying on board the ship, and then we'll begin on Monday with daily posts in the Gameplay section.

Hopefully you've already checked out this link for great tips on how to do Play by Post, and if you have, check it out again.


Male Human Paladin / 2nd Level [Init +2 | Per +1 | SM +5 | F+6 R+3 W+5 | AC 19 (T 11, FF 18) | CMD 17 | Speed 20' | HP 25]

My apologies oh, great and might, GM Mervikoth. I humbly repent of my wayward jest. I'm sorry that I misused, much to your annoyance, your handle. I beg your forgiveness.
