"Aaaaarrgh - it's a pugwampi! Kill it, Kill it with fire!"

Dot


Male Hairy Highlander Halfbreed Barbarian 9/King O' The North 5

"Here little puggy. Bad puggy! iNSanE PuGgY!!"

Dotted :)


SHHH! You'll ruin it for them!! -bah, you don't have fire anyway or roaches wouldn't have kicked yor arses. ; )

Alright everyone (else), check in and compare notes. Everyone is Chaotic Good so we shouldn't have any ethical issues. Also no healer, but there are ways around that so i'm not too worried.

It's a US holiday weekend so I may not start this up until mon. night so just tawk amongst yahselfs. and what's your time zone?
i'm at GMT -7.


Male Elf Bard - 6

I have a couple of questions. 1 - What is a Pugwampi?! Never heard of it before. 2 - Do you think that the group is okay for melee characters or should I try to get myself into the thick of battle to assist? Switching to a melee styled Bard is easy, so just let me know what you think.

Voodoo:
If you or anyone else decides that they want someone else who will be fighting, I can make some VERY quick changes to make Faelar a Dervish Dancer. His background will be the same, he will just not be as good when it comes to knowledge and won't be able to buff allies, if that is okay?

I am in England, so time zone = GMT +0:00
Thank-you Voodoo for choosing me to play this campaign and congratulations to my fellow players for also being selected. I look forward to playing with you guys.

Pugwampi:

Detestable little fey loathed by nearly ever other creature including their fellow fairy folk Pugwampis are commonly known as "jackal rats" and are beacons of bad luck and misfortune.

At last Voodoo found his zodiac sign ;)


Male Elf Bard - 6

Bad luck, fey?! Now they sound dangerous. Please tell me we will not be coming up against any of them!


Male Elf Bard - 6

Do you guys know the push/pull capacity of a Mule? Just doing a couple of final stock buying.


Female Human Fighter/5, Ranger/1(HP: 52/61; AC25/28; FF17/20; T16; F+8, R+9, W+4/+5; Perc: +10, Init +5)

While trains may be great in a push/pull configuration, I do not thing that mules are quite as effective - and in the push configuration if you have to get behind them they are likely to raise their tails and show you what they think of you.

Voodoo - thanks for choosing me, now I just need to get that Bow of Speed with Arrows of Pugwampi Slaying. --> Although I am guessing that normal arrows would work on the little vermin.

And to my fellow adventurers, welcome time to get some sand in our eyes and grit under our fingernail -- apparently we have no wussy cleric to worry about, so here is to Swords, Fire, Brimstone, and tactics which limit our injuries.


Female Human Fighter/5, Ranger/1(HP: 52/61; AC25/28; FF17/20; T16; F+8, R+9, W+4/+5; Perc: +10, Init +5)

Kzrira is modified to a 20 point build and set for the desert. Someone let know if there is anything which needs to be modified/corrected. This should be interesting with a Bard, Rogue, Fighter(Dex based) and Wizard - I think we better all get really good at sneaking and hiding in the sand - maybe Karethas and I should take a level or two in rogue and we will have the sneakiest party in history - hehehe, backstab via arrows.

Hello all happy to be aboard this here...desert. : p

It always a good thing when the Rogue is the wisest in the party. If i get murdered by mind controlled party members I'll be so...well dead but really grumpy. Heh.

I should look at buying my gear I guess. Won't be till tonight that I can get that hammered out but if Monday is the objective I have a day or two to get that resolved.

@Faelar - I wish I could remember exactly but I believe quadrupeds take their strength score on the push/pull/encumbrance chart and multiply that by something like 1.5 or 2 but I am not sure so I wouldn't quote me on that. That may also be a 3.5 ruling too...hmmm.

No dedicated Healers should be fun. Keeps us on our toes....

Oh and I am on Pacific Standard time which is UTC -8 I believe, but I have a one year old that pretty well keeps me n strange hours so I post all over the place time wise.


Female Human Fighter/5, Ranger/1(HP: 52/61; AC25/28; FF17/20; T16; F+8, R+9, W+4/+5; Perc: +10, Init +5)

Central Time here, but I usually check throughout the day - less on weekends. Don't expect very many posts after midnight for me.

Yeh - I hope the Bard is planning on taking some cure wounds, or making the strange multi to oracle -- that would be interesting, could be an oracle of music.


Male Daytona 500 DM / 12

Just dotting to watch the fun

Oh the Srd confirms: medium quadruped would be at Capacity or push/pull at their strength then multiply that value by 1.5.


Male Human Wizard (Conjurer)/ Level: 6 |HP: 29 of 37/ 0 NL| F=3 R=4 W=7 |Initiative +6| Perception +7 |AC 12(16 w/ Mage Armor)

Thanks for selecting my character Voodoo! I'm in the Eastern time zone, and I check the boards from work and in the evenings. I can usually post multiple times a day during the week, but a little less on the weekends.

Maybe since we are short a healer Voodoo can give us a wand of CLW and the bard can keep us topped off :-).


Faelar- I don't have a problem with Dervish Dancer. that'll be fine. and you might consider taking cure light wounds for a spell since you have that capacity.

Ok, camp followers- no more spoilers. Pugs are one of the 'joys' of LoF. don't listen to them Faeler. Pugwumpis are just a myth. Nothing could be that ugly and annoying...


Female Human Fighter/5, Ranger/1(HP: 52/61; AC25/28; FF17/20; T16; F+8, R+9, W+4/+5; Perc: +10, Init +5)

DM Voodoo - would you care if I were to switch from the base Fighter specializing in Archery to the Archery archetype? Now that I have reread it, I think it would work well.


Divine Gamemaster of the Abyss and below...

*sews his mouth shut*

No no no, unsew that. What else should we know? ; )


Divine Gamemaster of the Abyss and below...

There is a gnoll on the cover of one of the modules and a genie on another one...if that helps :)

I have to admit that I'm quite sad that I'm not a part of this, but I will remain lurking behind a camel...one that is not rigged...

That's fine. I also don't have a problem with making adjustments to your character until level 2. It always takes me a level of actually playing a character to kinda set the concept and see what works.


Male Elf Bard - 6

Okay so the modifier is multiplied...but what is a mules Strength score? I can't seem to find it anywhere. Once noticing that there wasn't a Cleric in the group, I was thinking about changing one of my spells to be a Cure Light Wounds. So are you guys okay with the group as it is, or would you like me to become a more melee based Bard, so we can have another person in close combat (Although I still won't do much damage)?

Edit - So should I play the beginning like I was a couple of days ago (never even hearing of these Pugwampi) or are the a famous myth?


I don't know that I've seen stats for a pack mule- i'd probably just use a pony with a 16 Strength (carries ~175-525 lbs. medium load)


Male Elf Bard - 6

Okay, thanks Voodoo :)


Female Human Fighter/5, Ranger/1(HP: 52/61; AC25/28; FF17/20; T16; F+8, R+9, W+4/+5; Perc: +10, Init +5)

I would go with something similar to a mule, say an elephant or an M-1 tank.


Kzrira Maiwith wrote:

You could probably buy those in Katapesh... just look for Crazy Ali's Trans-porium!

so i did a little research and pack mules generally carry about 200 lbs. so sounds about right. I'd give them an 18 Con as well.


Male Elf Bard - 6

I have spent all of my money now and updated it into my profile. Now just trying to figure which spell to change for Cure Light Wounds.

Voodoo only:

You may be wondering why I have the poles and canvas, well there is a reason. The poles are all places on the wagon, sticking upwards. 5 on each side, 3 straight up and 2 at a 45 degree angle (the one at the front sticks out over the mules and the one at the back sticks out away from the mules) Then I have the Canvas attached to the poles. This means that my wagon (which I will ride in while travelling in the open desert) is shaded from the sun, so if anyone else cannot walk any further they can sit in there for a while, while I walk.


Male Elf Bard - 6

Finished all of my adjustments now and ready to play when everybody else is now :)


Female Human Fighter/5, Ranger/1(HP: 52/61; AC25/28; FF17/20; T16; F+8, R+9, W+4/+5; Perc: +10, Init +5)

As we are a small group, if Voodoo wants to start the game thread with an intro, we could all start introducing ourselves and feeling each other out. We can hold off on the real game until Monday or whenever DM Voodoo is ready.


I just want to sort a few things out as it won't be the usual LoF opening. We'll be starting in Katapesh City at a cafe called the Golden Net.

Kzrira may be looking for info on Haleen's whereabouts from the well connected and friendly proprietor. Amir and Karethas could be plotting their next move at this favorite hangout. I want to check on Faelar's hook.

Faelar:
So for your pathfinder mission- I don't see PFS being all that interested in what happened to a backwater burg at the butt end of Katapesh. So do you mind if I change your mission to finding an original copy of The Tales of Shaharezthed (this is part of the AP). I also may give you some PF contacts here. Specifically the elf twins I mentioned earlier. One has been performing at the Golden Net.


Male Elf Bard - 6

Voodoo:
"Your first assignment is to accompany Garavel's group to
Kelmarane, the Pathfinder Society has heard rumors
of several ancient structures in the area, including a
ruined monastery once dedicated to Sarenrae, and would
like to learn more about them. Even more pressing is the
mystery of what brought about Kelmarane's ruin in the
first place, reports of which are vague at best. If you can
determine the cause of the village's abandonment so many
years ago."

However, if you wish to change the mission, I will not complain. The thought of finding the original copy of a book, Faelar would be EXTREMELY excited about this mission and give it his all. The new mission you have selected would probably be a better fit for Faelar actually.

I don't mind performing with the Elf at the Golden Net, I can dance and sing (although I have focused them on Irish folk dance and song style). That could be how the others meet me.

Are you okay with the idea of having the shaded wagon with the canvas? I didn't know how much canvas I needed, so I got all I could.


Faelar:
yeah, i didnt find that campaign trait all that compelling as written. I think recovering a rare book from a missing Marid princess might be more appropriate for teh PFS and a follower of Shelyn. You don't necessarily have to know your contacts. They are green PF intiates that havent earned their wayfinder yet and have a reputation for getting into trouble.
Also how knowledgeable do you want to be about Katapesh? Have you studied? If so then you have likely heard stories about these Pugwumpis, but like most you think it's just a way to write off bad luck. and i'm fine with the wagon, but where did you get the funds to buy it?


Male Elf Bard - 6

Voodoo:
I had 55 GP left after my original stuuf. The 2 Mules cost 16 GP together, the Wagon cost 35 GP. Together that is 51. The Barrel cost 2 GP, making it a total of 53 GP. So I only had 2 GP left, So I bought 10 canvas which is 10 SP (or 1 GP). Then10 Poles which cost 50 CP (1/2 a GP) and then finally 10 days worth of Feed which was also 50 CP making it a total of 55 GP.

I would have studied it as much as possible, so may have heard of them. As for recovering the book, it is perfect for Faelar.

It is up to you how I meet the others though, it doesn't affect me really. Just fills out my story a bit.


Keen. It sounds like our enterprising young bard is ready to go so here's the link.

i'm heading out to hear GRR Martin talk and then prolly camping tomorrow, so enjoy yourselves. game is on. :).


HP 64 | AC/Touch/Flat 20/14/16 | Fort/Ref/Will +6/+7/+3 | Init +3 | CMB +6; CMD 20 Bluff (11) Diplomacy (6) Kno:Local (6) Perception (10*) Stealth (14)

Sheik Voodoo:

I had a couple of equipment questions which I will assume in the affirmative and will take off my sheet if you have an issue with them:

I was hoping to buy a spring loaded wrist sheath from the Adventurer's Armory. Seems like the perfect kind of thing to grab at the Nightstalls.

My second issue was in regards to letters in Amir's possession. I was hoping that he might be able to find someone who could bind the letters into a book (and maybe somehow mount and preserve his mother's final letter in that same book) I was thinking that 15 gp would probably cover the specialty work (the same cost as a traveling spell book) since it would be less pages but might require about as much attention as something as specialized as a spellbook would require. Would this work for you?

The last thing is the urn of his father's ashes. In Amir's backstory it notes that it was mostly formed from the melted jewelry of his father. Is there a certain amount of my gp wealth that you want to go towards that? Do you care to come up with a value and/or weight for the urn and his father's ashes? Eventually he will spread the ashes in Kelmarane so who knows what that is worth. I doubt Amir would ever sell the urn when empty, he may even bury it or dispose of it somehow if it seems right in the moment. Anyway, wanted to get your input on that issue too.

Thanks a lot, hope GRRM was awesome.


Amir:
No problem with the wrist sheath. I'd say more like 10 gp for the portfolio book. and about 5 lbs for the urn. If you don't plan on selling it or anything, i'm not concered about the value.

That you for the prompt reply my Sheik ;)

Okay so I need to change my mother's kukri to a dagger because Rogue's aren't proficient with kukris....go figure.

or short sword- more damage.

I also wanted to mention that most people in Katapesh City will be speaking Kelish as a common tongue instead of Taldan. The outlands will be mainly Kelish with some Osiriani.


Female Human Fighter/5, Ranger/1(HP: 52/61; AC25/28; FF17/20; T16; F+8, R+9, W+4/+5; Perc: +10, Init +5)

Hmmm - born in Osiriani and lived in Katapesh for 10 years - should I take both languages and no Taldan? I have Common, Osiriana and Gnoll at present, seemed likely languages, did not realize that Kellish was the common tongue in Katapesh


It's not a World Guide thing, but I see Katapesh as more in the Qadiran sphere of influence so why would everyone be speaking the language of a rival country. Just substitute Kelish for Common (Taldane).

It's kinda like everyone in Hong Kong speaking English, oh wait...
;) Well, Common would more likely be a second language mostly used in the urban core, how about that? Taldan won't really come into play in this game too much anyway.

EDIT: Looks like everyone 'cept Faelar speaks it anyway which fits since he's from Avistan. translate for the bard anyone? :)
(if you want to sub a language Faeler, I don't think Infernal will be used at all, probably not Draconic either.)


Female Human Fighter/5, Ranger/1(HP: 52/61; AC25/28; FF17/20; T16; F+8, R+9, W+4/+5; Perc: +10, Init +5)

Changed - I now speak Kellish, Osiriani and Common - I really do not have meeting a lot of gnolls in my background and have done substantial travel on merchant vessels, so those three languages make sense.


That's fine. Amir has Gnoll covered and would have likely had dealings with them in Katapesh's seamy side.


Male Human Wizard (Conjurer)/ Level: 6 |HP: 29 of 37/ 0 NL| F=3 R=4 W=7 |Initiative +6| Perception +7 |AC 12(16 w/ Mage Armor)

Voodoo- I just wanted to mention that I noticed I should have picked an additional first level spell so I added Hydraulic Push to my spellbook.


HP 64 | AC/Touch/Flat 20/14/16 | Fort/Ref/Will +6/+7/+3 | Init +3 | CMB +6; CMD 20 Bluff (11) Diplomacy (6) Kno:Local (6) Perception (10*) Stealth (14)

Alllrriigghhtttyyy then. Gear is done, Amir is a little nuts about being prepared. If you have seen the beginning of "Alladin" just think of that merchant, Amir can be a bit like -that- as far as how he talks about items and things people might "need".

@Sheik Voodoo - I ended up switching Dodge for Combat Expertise...because its better in every way better for my needs and a pre-req for Improved Feint if I want to go there. Additionally I took your recommendation of short sword. I think those are the only adjustments I have made.


Female Human Fighter/5, Ranger/1(HP: 52/61; AC25/28; FF17/20; T16; F+8, R+9, W+4/+5; Perc: +10, Init +5)

Welcome back Voodoo - hope the camping was fun


ah yes, exploring sky islands west of Socorro NM. some hunters at the campground told me about their 'secret spot' which turned out to be a great hike on the north face of Mt. Baldy. about 10,000 ft elevation, beautiful views, plenty of wildflowers, and even water in a creek :) we spent most of the day up there and my girlfriend and I didn't see a soul.

Hey all, everything looks great. i'll allow some more time for introductions, then start the action ...

That is some beautiful country. I am from Western Colorado myself and I love the Southwest climate/landscape. My wife, who is from the Northwest, thinks I'm nuts.

I am from New Hampshire, but went to school in LA and lived for several years in Frisco and Denver, CO - so I have been out there. It is beautiful country, glad you have fun.
