Both Martian Level 20 invader

Hello everyone and welcome. This is our discussion board. Here I have a bit of a treat for those who made it. You can choose either to start with a hero point or trade it in to add 10 ability score points to buy extra points.

If you take the six points, you can disperse them as you choose among your abilities. You cannot use these to raise an ability score above 18 unless your race ability puts it above 18.

Most of you have alias's already, those who don't should make them. You will be allowed to make any changes to your classes or some slight character adjustments due to the ability score change. Please try and keep your character's plots intact though. Your personalities and backgrounds were the main motivator's for most of you. If you want to change your class completely, ask me first. I doubt most of you will change classes though, its just something I'm willing to allow before the game starts.

I will need copies of your completed stat blocks. The following have backgrounds I'd like to use in the campaign:
Lyric, Mhykir, Fanzir, Jen, Arik, and Pavak

Mus'ad:
(If you joined I got a good idea for you too. Ok) You can show up at anytime.

I will talk with each of you about some modification I'd like to make so your backstory can meld into the campaign. Once each of you has posted ready to go, We will begin. I'd like to start Sunday afternoon, but I am going to wait until everyone (except Mus'ad posts here)

Howdy all, I'm glad to be in the mix for this and am looking forward to it.

Have Fathers Day to enjoy today but will give my character the final polish tonight.

Shanosuke, on the ability points, is it 10 or 6? and do they get spent as in point buy, or direct addition at one for one?


Both Martian Level 20 invader

Woops, I missed an edit didn't I. It is 10 points. And it is using the point buy system to determine the score costs.

Hello everyone! I can't say how grateful I am to take part in what sounds to be one of the coolest campaigns ever!

For Shanosuke:

When Yalandere accepts Arik into the expedition...

Upon hearing the elven master's words, Arik's countenance explodes into a beaming smile.

Infinite thanks my lord! You will not regret it.

Arik then produces a small wine bottle from his pack. The Elf can plainly see that this is easily the most expensive thing Arik owns.

Moreover, it's actually on my character sheet and I did, in fact, sink the 10gp into it though I only had 30gp to begin with.

On my soul I swear to serve you wholly until such time that you release me or death take me. I ask only that, should we find him, you allow me to reclaim my brother Drugan: be he living or dead. I offer this Elvish wine as a token of my sincerity and loyalty.

Welcome aboard. I liked your story, I am currently adding some sidequests into the campaign based on your backstories. For you it involves the fate of your character's brother Drugan.


Male Dwarf Barbarian 2 Monk 2

I'm please you liked it. I've been rolling this character around for a while now but I never thought I'd get to play it because of the alignment restrictions. It was fun to put together such an unusual character.

Shanosuke:

Did the story really make you tear up? When I read it aloud to my wife after I wrote it, we both were misty eyed too.

Honestly once I read the story in more depth I felt attached to your character. So yes it did touch me. It was why I chose you. Plus I did want to see if the Barbarian/monk combo would work too.


Male Dwarf Barbarian 2 Monk 2

Well I can't wait to get started! What time on Sunday are you thinking?


Male Dwarf (Pahmet) Ranger (Warden / Trapper) 1

Cool, looks like I'll be beefing up my Con :)

Can I trade in some ability points for extra gold? I didn't have enough for barding on Al Gasreed, and would prefer a more expensive weapon than the spear I have currently...

How much gold would 5 ability points get me?


Both Martian Level 20 invader

once everyone has posted ready. I'd like to start as soon as I can. preferably around 3 o' Clock central.
I do need to cover how combat will run. For the first few combats, we'll do it by descriptions. I post each round and wait for for everyone to take an actions. I will arrange actions in accordance to initiative. Once I get my camera working, I will be taking pictures of the battlefield layout each round and posting them for you guys to see. I will ask around for around for other ideas on how to run combat. If any of you have some good ideas, let me know.

I accept skill checks for anything. If you feel the need to make a skill check for something, feel free to take it. I made this campaign myself and can pretty much adapt to whatever my players decide to do. So it's pretty flexible. Though the main plot will still be there to complete.

I'm feeling extra generous. You all get paid in advance. 250pg each to spend before the caravan leaves, how does that sound.


Male Dwarf (Pahmet) Ranger (Warden / Trapper) 1

Excellent :) Will post up the changes later and let you know once everything is settled.


Howdy all, and thank you Shanosuke for choosing me, I'm really looking forwards to this :)

I've taken the ability scores, as my dice rolls sucked, and used it primarily to beef up my cha a bit, hopefully this link works to my character sheet, and the extra money was useful, I've picked up a camel and some rations, which'll help. If you approve of the character sheet then I'm ready to go, otherwise let me know and I'll tweak it.


Male Dwarf (Pahmet) Ranger (Warden / Trapper) 1

Ok, changes as follows for the additional ability points:
Increased Con to 14 (5pts)
Increased Dex to 16 (3pts)
Increased Wis to 14 (2pts)

And for the 250 extra gold:
Elven Curve Blade - 80gp
Studded Leather Barding - 100gp
Upgrade Shortbow to Composite Longbow - 70gp

Will throw up an appearance and background on the profile later. Will also have a gander at the other inductees to see how Mus'ad fits in with them.

@ Arik - Barbarian / Monk does sound like an awesome mix. Are you planning to play the rage as a traditional frothing mouth? - or more a cold fury?


Oh, oops, forgot to actually show what i've changed score wise. I've gone from 15-2=13(racial modifier) to 18-2=16(racial modifier), taking up all 10 points.


Both Martian Level 20 invader

Mhykir, it would seem your character sheet requires me to have some form of password or something. So I can't see it :-(

Increasing Con to 15 from 12 - 5pts (making it 13 post mod)

Increasing Wis to 14 from 13 - 2pts

To be honest, I haven't quite worked it out yet. I think his rage will depend on the situation. If it's an emotional situation it will likely be uncontrolled and reckless; if not, cold fury is a good description.

Also, I added a physical description under Arik's profile. Just click his name to find out a bit about him!

Finished Pavok, let me know if I missed anything. Also Pavok passes on the 250gp since he paid for his job and doesn't need to take the caravan's money if they insist divide it up among the group evenly.

Are you aware of Flow? Always thought it would be a good Barb type concept to have a rage simulate flow - and probably gels with the Monk side too.

That said, froth mouth is also fun :)


Male Dwarf (Pahmet) Ranger (Warden / Trapper) 1

@ Shanosuke - Mus'ad should be ready to ride out. Have updated to suit the 10 extra ability points and 250gp boon. Also added a short description into the profile, though will repeat it in character when it's time for introductions.

Are we going to be required to track food usage, etc? - or is the expedition going to have extra pack animals for feed?


I'll take the ability score. Good oppertunity to get a decent casting stat. And if it's possible, I'd like to get a camel with my monies. It can be non-combat trained (aka not really have stats), just something to ride on since she's kinda tired of walking.

Shanosuke:
Re-reading over the spoiler in your first post here - was that an invitation to rock up once the expedition was underway? If so, I can work with that - if not, then I'll kick off at the start with everyone else.

Just a quick FYI as well - I'm in a training course all this week, so will only be online in the evenings. You'll still get a 1/day out of me though.

That's fine. It's been a bust week. Mus'ad would have heard a rumor that Yalandere was looking to have him join the caravan and he will show in just in time before the caravan leaves.


Both Martian Level 20 invader

Ok, were just waiting on Lyric and Fanzir.
Mus'ad, Arik, Mhykir, Pavak, and Jen. Glad you all can make it. Once I get a final post from the other two, we will start. In the mean time, I'm going to load all of you into my hero lab program. I will inform you when you level. I'd like to start today but I need to hear from the other two first. Atleast try and make sure you post once a day and we'll be moving right along.


Both Martian Level 20 invader

Mua'ad, I don't think I have your stat block. I've looked around for it but I can't seem to locate it. Did you post it or did I simply misplace it?


Are there any differences between normal DnD combat and Play by post combat? This is my first PbP campaign, so it is new to me.

Initiative order and posting order can make things a bit confusing at times but I will attempt to make adjustments to each round once everyone has posted. Combat can be slow at times and I will try to give everyone a heads up when a planned combat encounter is due. I want to see if I can find a time were we will get everyone able to post at the same time. During a combat, everyone posts their initiative and then their first actions. I will describe your options to each of you. As soon as I get this camera program I have working, I will start posting a battle map each round with everyone's positions. (I need to find a site to post it on though.) I should have that set by the end of the week. The map will show everyone's positions.

This is what your combat round should look like:

Yalandere moved to the closest goblin and swung his sword at it.
Move to goblin No 3. and attack. 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (4) + 8 = 121d10 + 4 ⇒ (1) + 4 = 5

Everyone's actions should look something like that. Now to avoid re-posting actions due to initiative order vs. posting order, when you post, make sure to see what else who has already posted and what they are currently doing or leave your action open ended for me to adjust as necessary. Or post two or more options. I will make sure to post everyone's initiative order so you know who goes before you. Assume that the foes nearest to you will move to attack you.

If there are any other questions, or things are unclear, please ask. I want to make sure were all on the same page once we start. If any of you have advice, please tell me. I want this to be fun.


I did hear it suggested that some people use Google Docs for PbP battle maps, whip up an excel file and make it public or something. I haven't looked closely into it so I'm not sure exactly how to do it, just throwing it out there.

Ok thanks. Now, thats it for all who are present. I'm still waiting on Lyric and Fanzir to post. I will probably start the campaign around midnight central time zone. I know that's a bit late but I want to give Lyric and Fanzir as much time as I can to give me they're details. They will still be able to join whenever they're ready.

Oh a Ph.D? Well then. Best of luck on your exams. you can submit your character sheet when you're ready but I will open the PBP tonight like I had planned. You wont miss anything too important. I just needed confirmation that you were still with us.


Both Martian Level 20 invader

Ok its well passed midnight and I'm going to start this thing.

Rune. When you join I will need your revised stat block and for you to make an Alias for Fanzir.

Retech, I need you to make an Alias for Jen.

Lyric, Once you give me your stat block you can start posting.

The rest of you, The campaign SOULS OF LOST ARIDIABegins at this Link= SOULS OF LOST ARIDIA Heres hoping for a nice fun campaign.


Hey hey it's Faznir (nor Fazrin actually!) here. I'll whip up an alias right away. Would you or the other players mind if I changed from Bard to Sorcerer? I wouldn't mind it one way or the other, but it fits my background a little better. About stats, I think I actually want to lower one or two scores (Strenght in special comes to light), but I think I'll take the extra points to buff Intelligence and Charisma.


Male Human(Kellid) Paladin(Hospitaler)-4

Hey Shanosuke I was wondering if I could add something to my background, sorry its a little into the story but I thought of it today and really want to use it. I want Pavok to take on the Torag Pilgrimage known as the Forged Blade March.

Forged Blade March:
This ancient pilgrimage is preformed by a servant of Torag when they feel they must atone for there misgivings or to help them find what path they should take in there current time of confusion. The Forged Blade March is a journey to lands unknown to the follower, they must only carry weapons and armor that they forged themselves or in battle. The paladin can never purchase a weapon or armor, they must only create them or take them from a warrior they have defeated in combat. They can offer there weapons to others, but can’t take one from there allies. The only weapons they can accept from another is from one they defeated in battle and that being only what the enemy is currently equipped with. Whenever the paladin kills another he must leave one of his weapons on the enemies’ dead body to bless the land the two fought on. The warrior does this until he has gotten his vision or message from the Master in Stone.

All of pavok's weapons were created by himself, that’s why he has such a weird assortment and he earned his chain shirt and 2 saps in battle with a random bandits. Let me know if its cool, it doesn't give me any bonuses it’s just something I like to follow it will make things more interesting for me as Pavok. If you got any questions let me know

Is there an awesome player out ther who can suggest me another trait? Haven't found one that matches yet (besides the campaign one).


Male Dwarf (Pahmet) Ranger (Warden / Trapper) 1

Shanosuke - do we roll for HP, or can we take average rounded up?

Also for combat, is it possible to get an initiative tracker of some kind? - just so we can keep track of where we are in the initiative flow.

Finally, I have no issues with DM rolled initiative if you would prefer to do it that way.


Male Dwarf (Pahmet) Ranger (Warden / Trapper) 1

Mus'ad and Al Gasreed should be almost ready for level-up checking. Just need to choose a feat for Al Gasreed. Have taken average rounded up for HP.

One other question - is Al Gasreed still barded?


Both Martian Level 20 invader

Okay, here are some additional rules for how I plan to run online games. Since I am still fairly new to this method of DMing, I have decided to make some changes based on how the prologue went.

You roll for hit points. If d6s or d8s roll a one, reroll, if d10s roll a 1 or 2, reroll, and if a d12 rolls a 1,2, or 3. Then reroll. Also you have gained two hero points each. One for leveling, one for completing the prologue. You can use these to reroll any dice, even hit points.

Also I'm going to start running combat two rounds at a time. I will be posting a map one a different website to show everyone where everything is. Also when you post in combat, I want you to to post in big and bold at the top of your posts what round your action is taking place. I will will arrange your actions in order of initiatives and may alter some of your actions depending upon what has changed before your turn.
I will allow no more than one advance post from each of you. Post your action for the current round and the next. Again I will personally alter actions based on weather things change. This method should keep battle going much faster. Usually most conflicts last 4 to 8 rounds tops, if everyone posts in this fashion, we should complete each combat within three to four days.

Another thing. Since combat is slow, I don't want it to be sought after. Therefore I will be awarding levels in mass effect style. Every time you complete a main plot objective, you will level, such as the prologue. For every five sub plots you complete will also be worth a level. So that being said, there will be few to no random encounters and when you have to fight it will usually be a preplanned battle.

In all situations, get creative. Don't resort to hostilities every chance you get. I hold a high emphasis on skill usage and It makes roleplaying a lot easier. This should make the game run smoother and have less complications.

Again if no one posts within three day without word, then I will have to remove them from the campaign. Are there any questions?


Male Dwarf Barbarian 2 Monk 2

I like these ideas. No questions currently.


All sounds good to me.

Just as a note, I've just started a full time job (Broke my 9 month unemployement draught :D:D:D), however I always check my PC before I go to work, and afterwards, so I'll be able to keep up no problems, I just wont be on when the bulk of posts seem to be made.


Male Dwarf (Pahmet) Ranger (Warden / Trapper) 1

Mus'ad HP: 1d10 ⇒ 8
Al Gasreed HP: 2d8 ⇒ (3, 5) = 8

Shanosuke - have redone Al Gasreed's second hit point roll as well.

No issues with any of the rules.


Male Ifrit Sorcerer 2

Sorry for the delay, I'm having a hard time with college finals and trying to find a time to redo my sheet. Will finish it by tomorrow.

edit: Sheet done. Will try to focus on buff spells (to cover for the lost bard), but the first level is terribly absent on those. So expect haste/stats, etc :)
