Male Elf Bard - 6

Personally I have no problem with that. This is my very first low Wisdom character I have ever had, so I appreciate that you think I am playing it well.


I'd prefer you add in your own bonuses and you only need to split out temporary bonuses. so in Kzrira's example, i'd lump the weapon and feat bonuses with BAB, etc. and split out the inspire courage bonus.

1d20+5+1

also split out things like flanking, etc.

Karethas- no problem.

Voodoo, did you see my question about Hydraulic Push?


oh yeah, I'm cool with push or pull, whichever direction you like.


Male Elf Bard - 6

Kzrira, thanks for clarifying about the Bardic Performance. I was just worried that as I am humming (Which is using Perform : sing) that me talking would effect it. I am glad it doesn't.

I think I may have to buy a bow to be of actual help in combat, I did not think that this would happen.

Also I am contemplating ignoring the path I was thinking of taking for Faelar. Seeing as we are getting hurt badly, I was thinking I might take a few levels of Oracle. That way we could actually have a Healer in the group, also the "Life" Oracle can have Channel Energy and relies on Charisma for spells instead of Wisdom. This is not want I was planning to do with him, but what does everyone think of this? Would you like me to stick to what I was planning, or to take some levels of Oracle?


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)

VooDoo - does Shifty still want to join with his oracle?

Faelar - let's wait and see. VooDoo may have one more person who could join, has an interesting character.

I think that Faelar should be whoever he will be. I dislike changing concepts to meet mechanical needs. In a world of magic there are plenty of resources for us to use and over time a rogue and a bard should have little trouble figuring that out.

If we have an Oracle joining us all the better and if you think that becoming one "fits" for Faelar then great but I would rather us think "outside the box" rather than force class changed on ourselves. My 2 cp

Agreed


Male Elf Bard - 6

Ah cool, I shall remain as I am then. I do definitely think the first thing we need to buy is a wand of Cure Light Wounds though. I don't think my 2 uses a day is going to be a great help. I suppose the best thing about not having a healer is that we are having to think extra hard about what we can and cannot do.

Starting next level I'll be investing in UMD so I should be able to cajole a CLW wand into working most of the time. (and as long as I don't roll a 1 I should be able to basically spam the damn thing until it produces). Then there are potions, pricy but there they are.

Since Voodoo is shooting for a more sandboxey feel I'm sure he won't mind us running things off the rails to get extra loots to supplement our healing fund ;-)


Male Elf Bard - 6

That would be great, I can also use a wand of Cure Light Wounds. But I won't need "Use Magic Device" to use it, as it is already on my spell list.


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)

Since we are still in the phase of fiddling with characters a bit I have bumped Amir's age up some more. I realized I present him as "older" but 34 seemed a little too young. As long as there is no issue my assumption would be that his stats as purchased would represent his current state whereas he might once have been more physically capable but is a little smarter for the abuse on his body now. Just thought I would mention it. Let me know if anyone forsees any trouble.


yeah, who you calling old at 34?! I'd say 40+ is over the hill.
current stats are fine.
NOTE: I will be travelling etc. over the next week so posts may be spotty.


Male Elf Bard - 6

Ah, you going anywhere special? I hope you have a great time.

Thanks. US holiday at the end of the week, so I'll be taking the whole week off to camp and visit friends around southern Arizona.


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)

Yes - this is the holiday when we celebrate the great history of slaughtering turkeys.


Male Elf Bard - 6

Ah...Well have fun.


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)

So we need Amir to appraise the rest of the loot and to sell them for us. I assume he would be best at the haggling 8-). When given the opportunity, Karethas will cast read magic and read the spellbook. Voodoo, would you mind just giving me the spells contained in the book? I will then try to find time in our down time to copy the spells as I can afford to.


Male Elf Bard - 6

During the time that Karethas studies the spell book, I would like to read the Poetry book. But the scroll case and Map I am particularly interested in keeping. If the group is okay with that. It goes well with my love of history, but also the painting of Katapesh would be great if we need to find some old parts of the city that may have been forgotten and the case would keep it nice and dry.

Voodoo, is the painting a landscape or birds-eye?


The painting is a lively street scene of the lower market from several centuries ago (not a map). It is well executed and measures 3' by 5' so it won't be portable unless cut from the heavy wooden frame.

The spell book contains-
Level 1- alarm, charm person, comprehend languages, magic missile, summon monster 1
Level 2- invisibility, resist energy, spider climb, summon monster 2


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)

Come on Amir, you telling me that you can't fence some ill gotten gains? :-)


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)

Oh I can ist just a question of if someone who is more important than me is on the lookout for what we are fencing ;-p


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)

Wait! We can do a selling loot montage! It seems like a while since we have had a montage, although it has not been long in game.


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)

IS there any conceivable way we could move that statue? 500 gp is basically one of the wands we want and then some.

Maybe they have a cart and horses on the property that we can load up?

O: )


Male Elf Bard - 6

Probable not anywhere near time yet, but just wondered how you do experience? Do you just tell us when to level up, or will you be giving us experience for most encounters?

Also are we going to be getting any rest during this night, just wondering because of my spells and I regain another of my Dexterity points back.


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)

I figured that we would not be able to get any rest this evening, but that we shouldn't run into too many problems so close to the city and will able to catch up on our sleep during the heat of the day or the next evening after we begin our trip.


I hadn't really decided how to do xp yet. APs seem to favor timed level ups, but as I'm adding other bits in, it might be fairer to calculate it. For the record, you are roughly at 800 xp so far.


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)

On way I have frequently seen is for the DM to keep the exp under a spoiler on the campaign page. That way we do not have to worry about it, especially since we will be mostly fighting together and should level up at about the same times.


That's what I usually do- just wasn't sure if I wanted to leave it looser with an actual AP- I went ahead and just added an xp button since I know y'all would like a count.


There is an OOC thread guys :P

I'm figuring after purchasing the wand of cure light wounds you have 200 change + 2000 for bracers + 239 from the chest + whatever pocket change you found.


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)

My vote is 2 Mithral Shirts, a few scrolls for Karethas. We do not have the money for any magic weapons yet. Also, with the Mithral Shirts, we can have them magicked at some point when we get the cash. I am good on keeping the mask. A few level 1 scrolls are only like 50 gp each. Also, a few more spells for him to scribe are good. The mithral shirts are good for me, Faelar and Amir. When we get better magic armor, I can use anything as long as it is not too heavy (Full Plate). Then the mithral shirt can go to whoever does not have one. The nice thing with the Mithral Shirt is almost no armor penalties for thieves skills.

Also, if we buy the parts, I can probably craft a masterwork heavy crossbow while on the road.

What is this OOC you speak of?

Kzrira's plans sound...er...sound and it lets Faelar keep his trophies. I'm not too attached to overwhelmingly anal treasure accounting so I think we should move on with what we have hammered out and if we feel like it doesn't work out we can reconfigure our expectations for the next stash...


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)

OOC = out of character. Before they changed the format of the website about 2 months ago, DMs frequently had 2 threads, an IC - in character, and an OOC thread. They merged them and other game stuff together. Now what is listed as the "Discussion" thread is what we used to call the OOC thread. In other words, this is the OOC thread and VooDoo was telling us that a lot of our out of character plotting and planning could be done on this thread rather than filling up the IC thread.


I think Amir was making a joke, as in...

What is this newfangled 'Discussion' thread of which you speak? : )


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)

Yeah sorry, those sorts of jokes dont always sell well on the ol internet.


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)

The two scrolls that I think that we will really need as a group is the Endure Elements and Identify, which will cost 25gp each. I have been lucky with the items so far, but having identify is a better way to go. Endure Elements is in my opposition school, but while traveling it will likely be necessary in a pinch while we are low levels. The rest of any money going my way will be spent buying supplies to make my own scrolls and to buy supplies to allow me to copy spells from the spellbook we looted to my own spellbook.

The total that I recorded from the bodies outside the estate was 172.4gp in gold and 204.5 from items (already halved from full price, but not taking into account Amir's trait.)


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 - did you include the golden bug I got from the goblin's box?

So, we are buying:

2x Mithral Shirts - 2040
2x Level 1 scrolls - 50

I think we already got the traveling supplies yesterday, correct me if I am wrong.

We have:

2000 - Bracers
200 - after CLW wand
239 - from the chest
500 - Statue - Did we manage to get the statue and sell it? With all the running around, I was not sure - if we would have gotten caught by the authorities, then ditch it.

--> So we should have some left over, just not sure how much. Might want to get a masterwork instrument for Faelar and Masterwork Thieves Tools for Amir as well as the necessary components to write/transcribe spells/scrolls for Kar.


Male Elf Bard - 6

I don't use any instruments in my performances, but it was a nice thought. Also we won't need Endure Elements, as I mentioned previously, I have enough room on my Wagon to sit us all, it is shaded due to items I have bought and most importantly my 2 mules have the strength to pull us all.

I hope that will help you in your buying :)


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)

I have MW theives tools now, the one guy was carrying them and we killed him dead so I'm gonna keep his stuff. ;-)

I think the scroll might be a good avenue because while the cart will keep us safe most of the time the scroll is an emergency measure for when Faelar or my resources fail us. I would think of it as an emergency auto kit item - for when the conveyance breaks down and we are out of options.


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)

Exactly, this being a desert campaign, better to have it and not need it for 25gp. I will be making enough scrolls of it over time that we could all use one if needed without too much cost. I love wizards 8-).

I didnt include Kzrira's prize. She won it so I figure she can do as she will with it. You don't have the statue, but given the rumors that it's now at a crime scene, you'd be taking a risk going back for it.

Given that it is winter in the desert, the days shouldn't be too hot, but it can get cold at night. Endure Elements probably isn't all that necesssary, but doesn't hurt to be prepared.


Male Elf Bard - 6

Did we buy those 2 books that Xander sold? There were only 65 Gold Scarabs each, Karethas and myself both showed an interest in them too.


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)

Someone figure out how much we have left. Go ahead and buy them if we have the cash.


I thikn he bumped the price down to 50 scarabs each. I gave Karethas a chance to buy the books once Xilla said she could create the scrolls he needed.


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)

IF my math is right we shoul be looking at this:

Kzrira gets:
1 Mithral Shirt
214 GP 8 SP (this includes the value of the scarab which we did note I would try to sell when I could, I assume that happened ok.)

I get:
Mask of Disguise
MW Thieves Tools
Mithral Shirt
49 GP 8 SP

Faelar gets:
Scroll case
Book from house
49 gp 8 sp

Karethas gets:

Spellbook
2 Scrolls
49 gp 8 sp

Party Fund
2 Books (Given to Xilla)
49 gp 8 sp. (We spent all previous monies gained as a group on shank and provisions. So this is all the group has if we want to cut a seperate share for all of us versus each of us.)


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)

Looks good. Not enough to get me a Mithral Heavy Shield, so it seems good. I will hold off on a better crossbow until I get a feat or two and can use a heavy crossbow efficiently.


Male Elf Bard - 6

Wow, I have money too :)

Voodoo, are you allowing any feats from the "Qadira, Gateway to the East" book? I was looking at Dervish Dance and wondered if you would allow me to take that at level 3? In short, it allows me when using a Scimitar to deal my Dex modifier as damage, instead of my Str.


thanks for the accounting, Amir. loot totals look good and you're all sitting pretty considering the AP proper hasn't even started yet ; )

Faelar- Dervish Dance is fine.


Faelar- I hadn't really put any thought into what the illustrated text you found at the mansion would be. Why don't you go ahead and decide what the story is, if you like. maybe something to share around the campfire.


Male Elf Bard - 6

Illustrated text? The only text I can recall is the Poetry book and the ancient Hieroglyphics on the double doors. Maybe I missed something?
