Thanks, I try.

We haven't heard from Koldir in ages. I'm worried Jevon lost his gutter rat buddy :(

Are you still out there Koldir?


HP 22/25, AC 20, F +4, Ref +2, W +1, Init +1

Aldus too.

I know Roshan is still around the boards at least a bit, but Aldus has always been quiet. But yeah, we haven't heard from him either.


Male Dwarf Cleric 2, [hp 19][AC 20][CMD 15][Fortitude +5][Reflex +2][Will +7][Initiative +4][Perception +10]

Hey guys, I'm still alive, I'm so sorry, I left on a rather sudden packpacking trip, and haven't been back to the forums since I returned. Koldir was lying in his cabin during the whole storm, so hopefully it hasn't caused major problems- I'll be posting again now if that's alright.


Male Elf Oracle 2 / Fighter 1 (HP 17 | AC 15 | T 12 | FF 13 | CMD 14 | F +2 | R +2 | W +5 | Init +2 | Per +7)

Welcome back. I was beginning to think you died in the crash. lol.

I might be starting up a P.P.B.P. (Pony Play by post) if there is enough interested people. Here is a link if anyone is.


I will be going into the woods for a week or so on a camping trip. This means that I highly doubt I will have access to internet.

I apologize for this delay in everyone's gaming schedules and I hope to be back before you know it!

P.S. If bears devour me, give a short prayer to Cayden Cailean for me eh?

Happy camping trip, Matt !

Don't forget to strew your path with white little stones to find your way back to civilization :-) !

Aldus too.

I'm still here, the RP was very insular for a while and I didn't want to clog up the gameplay threads with a random post about how Aldus is magicking in his cabin. This past week I got pretty sick and so haven't checked in a little bit so I missed the parts where you were talking about me but if you mention Aldus that'll flag the post for me and I'll reply if you're addressing me.

Just realized that I never did roll HP for our level up.

Leylyn & Endrian:
Did either happen to read post-crash vision? I just have this nagging concern that I overstepped my bounds writing it.

Ithriel:
I am loving your visions Ithriel. I do not mind in the slightest


Be back tomorrow my fellow Seekers, the woods left me sane and alive. While we're on the subject of woods and survival, I hope your characters are ready for some good old fashioned cabin fever syndrome and wilderness survival... for who knows where you've crashed?

Ithriel:
Reread it. 1st time I read it I was like, ok, Cool. But after re-reading it and thinking about it, I think you have actually hit on something that is going to happen. Although Leylyn and Endrian are lovers now, I can guarantee that the definition of "lover" is different for both of them. I can Foresee Leylyn's Chaotic nature and Endrian's Lawful nature butting heads to the point that they will hurt their relationship in the future. Leylyn is the kind of person that loves all of her friends, in both body and soul. I foresee lots of drama, and potential heartbreak. ;)

Leylyn & Endrian:
Thanks, I feel better about it now. I just wanted you to know that I'm not actually trying to be prophetic as to what is actually going to happen. If it does, it's pure coincidence.

Cabin fever ? Noooooo... ;-) !

I love wilderness survival !

In my home game, I even got rid of Create Water and Endure Elements spells so I could tell tales of Humans surviving against Nature (or is it Humans surviving amongst Nature ?)


M Human 1 Mnk 2Sorc [AC 16/20 CMD17] [F3R6W7] [HP16]

Why get rid of those spells? The only ones who would learn those would be spellcasters who stay out in the wilderness a lot, so your stories could easily be about cityslickers surviving against all odds.


HP 22/25, AC 20, F +4, Ref +2, W +1, Init +1

You get rid of them because with then it's only survival for a night (for the divine casters), or a level, or until they can hole up in a cave for enough time to research (for wizards).

Sorcerers probably wouldn't take those spells due to having a more limited selection, but most other casters it's pretty easy to get new low-level spells.


M Human 1 Mnk 2Sorc [AC 16/20 CMD17] [F3R6W7] [HP16]

Well food is needed for survival as well, for the divine perhaps you are right for the short term survival but the for the wizard, why would they have that spell?

That kind of spell would be hard to find as it is a specialty spell only even looked for by those who go into the wild all the time and thus would be had by those who would have mundane ways of doing the same thing if the spell wasn't available.

Thus Bear Grills (however you spell it, since I have no idea how) and the army would have it but for merchants and city folk it would be rare.

The army and Bear Grills don't count since it wouldn't be much of a story for them anyway, so just make those spells hard to find outside specialists.

As for divine casters, one thought I was considering is the need to learn spells similar to a wizard so they have a limited list from which to prep spells, this would explain how divine casters can research personal spells and how deities can give different spells to followers and how a cleric can, not have a deity to begin with.

-
note,
Most casters have a limited list and a lot of them don't include such spells on their list and one change in PF is that only spells on one's own spell list can be researched.

So it seems to me only divine casters get easy and that still doesn't account for trying to find food.


male human cavalier 3 [hp 26/26] [AC 17, touch 12, flat-footed 15 (+5 armor, +2 Dex)] [Fort +4, Ref +3, Will +1 ] [Init +2] [Perception +2 ] [CMD 18]

It seems simpler to me to just say those spells don't exist.

Actually, I simplified (for the sake of simplicity :-) a bit the way I deal with those spells in my home game:

Endure Elements doesn't exist.

Create Water is a level 3 spell (level 2 for druid)

Create Food and Water becomes Create Food, and is a level 4 spell.

This way, my players get to play in a setting where survival in the wilderness and nature matter until levels 6-8.

Incidentally, this give the rangers and druids characters many opportunities to shine during the game.

A big part of my love for the medieval fantasy genre has to do with the vastness and danger of untamed wilderness, and nature in general.
With a world that has not been thoroughly tamed by humans.

IRL I live in western europe, which is probably the tamest part of the world, nature-wise.


M Human 1 Mnk 2Sorc [AC 16/20 CMD17] [F3R6W7] [HP16]

if it works for you I guess,

but truthfully if magic were real creating water would be one of the simpler things to do compared to most spell effects, for it simply requires drawing it out of the air (which wouldn't work as well in the desert for obvious reasons).

The biggest hurdle in survival is lack of knowledge on how to do things, rather then the inability to do them.


HP 22/25, AC 20, F +4, Ref +2, W +1, Init +1

Tim, I don't want to start a conflict, but your character is coming off as a jerk. If you're playing it that way on purpose, no problem. It's just RP. If not, there's a few things you should probably be made aware of-

First off, Jevon didn't reveal anything about our mission. He just made a bad joke about Tiny being the reason for the crash. Read his post again. Anyone overhearing it would not have guessed it had any real significance than someone trying to lighten the mood with morbid humor.

Then you went and said

Tim Deamon wrote:

"...try not to go revealing every little piece of information the should be kept quiet!

...there may not be an insider at all, which is another reason why we were to investigate, which doesn't include throwing accusations around because you're angry."

Which basically revealed the full scope of the plan and our purpose to anyone in earshot. You can't call someone out for revealing things, and then reveal even more with your next breath.

Finally, you're jumping to conclusions about what's left of the ship, and about the possibility of enemies near by. You might be right, but rather than tossing out contradictory directions, you might try asking for more details or making a few relevant rolls to gain more information.


M Human 1 Mnk 2Sorc [AC 16/20 CMD17] [F3R6W7] [HP16]

He wasn't making a joke for he said in the post he was angrily kicking things and a lot can be inferred from what he did say including prior knowledge of a traitor, though I admit not everyone thinks as deeply as I do, therefore maybe others wouldn't catch as much from his words as I do.

Tim revealing everything afterwards was because he believed it was revealed enough that at least the traitor would have caught onto it so he wants the traitor to believe that Tim has given up trying to catch him or her.

As for the ship, if it hit hard enough to NOT be significantly intact then no one would have survived the crash, not to mention you also assumed, rather illogically, that the ship was so destroyed that you would have to gather timbers to make a roof. From what I recall we are supposed to have a little play with our descriptions anyway.

Edit, the enemies

Tim saw creatures in the storm, the storm seemed odd, and the group had recently been attacked by a dragon. Tim feels it very likely that enemies are nearby.


HP 22/25, AC 20, F +4, Ref +2, W +1, Init +1

regardless of whether any or all of these things are the case, your character is making people pretty angry.

If that's just RP, no problem. If it's not, well, I thought you might appreciate it if someone brought it to your attention.

Even if the ship is even partially intact, it would be a really bad idea to stay at the crash site. If there are enemies, that's the first place they'll head.


Urban Barbarian 1/Musket Master 2 (HP 31 | AC 20 | T 14 | FF 16 | CMD 18 | F +7 | R +5 | W +1 | Init +3 | Per +7

I'm not mad or anything. However when I posted that, I just assumed that it was only seekers present, and it was intended to be mostly a joke. I think what we're lacking here is information on what exactly the situation is. We don't know what's up with the ship damage wise, we don't know how many people lived, etc...

In character Jevon has antagonized Tim from the beginning so it would be totally understandable for Tim to go off on him. I'm also trying to have Jevon "grow up" a bit now that we've been playing for a while. The intent is for him to become slowly less of a dick.


M Human 1 Mnk 2Sorc [AC 16/20 CMD17] [F3R6W7] [HP16]

Figured as much and Leon, it is just RP but thanks for pointing it out anyway, I have ausperger's so I do need it on a blue moon, but not as much on forums for some reason, I think because there is no nonverbal context to confuse as much.


Sorry for the delay, I'm not used to explosive campaigns like this one quite yet.

To fully clarify the situation:

- No one aside from your group still knows your mission.

- The ship is very badly damaged and certainly in no flying condition. I'd say at least a good 1/3 of the ship is scrap and the rest badfly damaged. It was luck that saved you all on this one.

- As for enemies, the airborne creatures have not been re-sighted but the sky above is still dark.

As for Keddemas lying with his face in the dirt, I assumed it was a visual way to signify he was dead as a dodo. Oops, I guess !

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Eveldine, most definitely ^_^!

Thank you for reminding me that Goblins exist! Used to read this years ago.

I am loving the exposure to all the facets of the internet that is happening in this OOC discussion

To Jevon and Leylin:

I took the liberty of moving our search party to the lake's shore. But that doesn't mean I'm not interested by our conversation during the trek in the dark forest - quite the contrary, in fact.

Feel free to do some flashback woodland dialogue if you feel like it, and Baster will be happy to reply.


HP 22/25, AC 20, F +4, Ref +2, W +1, Init +1

Goblins starts out kind of cheezy with self-aware gaming humor (kind of like Order of the Stick), but after about a year in the archives it turns into a really engaging narrative with flat out amazing artwork. Also, some of the villains and monsters are pure distilled nightmare fuel.


M Human 1 Mnk 2Sorc [AC 16/20 CMD17] [F3R6W7] [HP16]

I get to be the stick! And some random soldier gets to be Senor Vorpal Kickass'o, just for the fun if it. Hmm, I should try that sometime, 1st level everything.

I used to read goblins too. Been a while though, I should check up on it.

I recommend you guys check out Dominic Deegan: Oracle for hire! It's probably my favorite web comic.


Male Elf Oracle 2 / Fighter 1 (HP 17 | AC 15 | T 12 | FF 13 | CMD 14 | F +2 | R +2 | W +5 | Init +2 | Per +7)

Tim, I have to thank you introducing me to Goblins. I've been reading it daily at work during down time, and loving it. Thanks again.


Urban Barbarian 1/Musket Master 2 (HP 31 | AC 20 | T 14 | FF 16 | CMD 18 | F +7 | R +5 | W +1 | Init +3 | Per +7

I read goblins like once a year. It usually only takes me a couple hours to catch up to the current one. Thanks for the reminder though :P


HP 22/25, AC 20, F +4, Ref +2, W +1, Init +1

Matt, I'm in all the way.

I second what Leon just said ! No, I triple it !

Well, you get the idea, Matt... I love this campaign :-) !

You have to understand: The Grail won't escape my grasp, and then my power will be absolute !

Huuu, I mean... Sorry, I had a cliched evil character moment there (must be an allergic reaction to the pollen in the woods, or something) ;-) !


Little shameless cross promotion if people have any extra time to game. My new game


I'd already dotted and begun working on my character yesterday night. (Ken Devendell).


Male Elf Oracle 2 / Fighter 1 (HP 17 | AC 15 | T 12 | FF 13 | CMD 14 | F +2 | R +2 | W +5 | Init +2 | Per +7)

I'm with Leon and Baster on this one. The first PbP I joined has just been shelved, so that makes this the longest one I've been in. Besides, I really like Ithriel, he's had so many incarnations from Pen and Paper to WoW (had at least three versions there) that I want to see how he fairs here.


Anyhow, minus Koldir everyone's check in so tomorrow we're starting the gameplay once again.

Cheers to you fabulous people.
