Male Human Writer 2/Dreamer 7

Hey, look who all got and got themselves in a Skull and Shakles PbP - some of my favorite PbP buddies.

Dot.


Male Human (Taldan) Buccaneer 3- HP 25/25, AC15, CMD15, F+3, R+4, W+1, 0/12 BP Used, 0/4 Lvl 1 Spells Used

I'll be out of contact until the very end of July, due to a trip to Kiev followed by days spent packing up the flat i'm living in here in Ukraine followed by a 3 day bus journey back. Its easier to just declare my absence now rather than try and keep up with things during this busy time. Roll on August!

Xantrius will keep up his charm efforts with Conchobar over the next couple of days.


Deity

Looking for actions from Lysandra, Mata and/or Xantrius...


Male Half-Orc Wizard 2 - HP 11/21, 0 non-lethal, AC15, CMD16, F+2, R+1, W+2, Prescience 0/5

Was wairing for my turn but happy to go.


Think Xantrius requires DMPCing.


Male Human Cleric 3 (FC) HP: 25/25 AC: 16

Correct X needs DMPC...


Male Human (Taldan) Buccaneer 3- HP 25/25, AC15, CMD15, F+3, R+4, W+1, 0/12 BP Used, 0/4 Lvl 1 Spells Used

Thanks for DMPCing. Please continue to do so as i'm in the midst of packing to move back to England- although everyone should note they should be adding +1 to attack and damage rolls (inc. Xantrius) for his Flagbearer feat- +1 morale bonus on attack rolls, weapon damage rolls, and saving throws against fear and charm effects. See you in august!


Male Human (Taldan) Buccaneer 3- HP 25/25, AC15, CMD15, F+3, R+4, W+1, 0/12 BP Used, 0/4 Lvl 1 Spells Used

Still lurking on the game but packing/working today. Recommend a search of the bilges.


Male Human (Taldan) Buccaneer 3- HP 25/25, AC15, CMD15, F+3, R+4, W+1, 0/12 BP Used, 0/4 Lvl 1 Spells Used

Back in action, thanks for your patience.

What was the extra -2 for on my survival check btw? I saw his wisdom penalty and the shirk but that should be -4 not -6...

Wouldn't make a fuss but I was really hoping not to get whipped at any point and that extra -2 made him fail :P.


Deity

There was also a -2 for the heat fatigue.
I understand your desire to avoid whipping, but that directly conflicts with the apparent goals of Plugg and Scourge. :-)


Male Human (Taldan) Buccaneer 3- HP 25/25, AC15, CMD15, F+3, R+4, W+1, 0/12 BP Used, 0/4 Lvl 1 Spells Used

So fatigue was ad hoc applied to a skill check based on wisdom?

I can't really fault you for that I suppose. Turtle catching must be strenuous.

Thanks. I'll get back to winning over shipmates shortly.


Deity

Xantrius- Helpful is the best you can shift someones attitude to, and your most spectacular rolls so far have been against a friendly Grok and a friendly Conchobhar. You did get Kroop up to Helpful in one roll, but checking back over posts, I see I did rip you and Sevien off an attitude step early on until I reread the Diplomacy rules, for which I apologise to you both. In my defence, I also let you shop that day and influence again in the evening as I hadn't made the rules known at that point and couldn't see a logical reason to just say "No" apart from it not being in the rules. Some of the NPCs have Cha modifiers that also alter the DC (why Conchobhar only moved 1 step with your 20 total- high Cha.) And, as you've found, diplomacy is also ineffective against "creatures that intend to harm you or your allies in the immediate future." Also, differing from the usual Diplomacy rules, attitudes obviously aren't shifting back after the usual 1d4 hours. However, that doesn't mean they're never going to shift back again either. I'll try and keep it all fair and making sense. :-)
Thanks for the heads up and I'll try and make it up to you. :-)


No doubt he has more hp than me so I think im in trouble particularly if he has ius.

But hoping at least to make a good go of it :)


Deity

Just wanted to set a hard and fast rule now, for everyone, to avoid any confusion or issues that may come up in the future.

No holding rolls over. Always roll again.

Clear labelling of dice rolls will help avoid misunderstandings. If you label a roll and it isn't used, next round make a new roll and label it. Don't relabel the old roll. Maybe I did use the old roll. Maybe it was wasted. Maybe there were multiple wasted rolls. Maybe it was a 1. Best just to roll for the next action as opposed to matching new checks with old rolls. You will hate every 20 you waste, but I'll also never have to decide if I should make you keep that 1.
Additionally, suspense is maintained until you post and we read, as opposed to everyone knowing that you'll succeed or fail before they've even had their turn, because the roll was 'left over' from the previous round.


Fine with me.


Male Human (Taldan) Buccaneer 3- HP 25/25, AC15, CMD15, F+3, R+4, W+1, 0/12 BP Used, 0/4 Lvl 1 Spells Used

Sigh. New replies on this discussion thread were not showing on this thread via my campaigns tab...

No worries DM, happy with all of that.


Male Half-Orc Wizard 2 - HP 11/21, 0 non-lethal, AC15, CMD16, F+2, R+1, W+2, Prescience 0/5

Yeah I found that I had no new replies as well, odd.


I can't believe these pirates aren't playing fair!

Probably would have made much more sense to step back draw my dagger and ready but going for the spectacular victory.


Male Human (Taldan) Buccaneer 3- HP 25/25, AC15, CMD15, F+3, R+4, W+1, 0/12 BP Used, 0/4 Lvl 1 Spells Used

Didn't see an answer to my query- do we still get our night time actions?


Deity

Yup.


Male Human (Taldan) Buccaneer 3- HP 25/25, AC15, CMD15, F+3, R+4, W+1, 0/12 BP Used, 0/4 Lvl 1 Spells Used

Sorry guys. I'll get a post up this evening once i've arrived at a friends I am visiting.

SM Dave, if for some reason that post doesn't materialise, Xantrius' intentions are to work diligently in the hope of managing the task for the day.


Male Human (Taldan) Buccaneer 3- HP 25/25, AC15, CMD15, F+3, R+4, W+1, 0/12 BP Used, 0/4 Lvl 1 Spells Used

GM I am a little teensy bit lost again in the IC after kind of half-following it while struggling on time. Do I have any actions to retcon in or am I good for catching up to current day now? Got some time to post again at the moment.

Help me catch up? :)


Deity

The whipping for day 6 happened a week ago, Sevien was the only person who mentioned night time actions, so I've resolved that and moved onto Day 7. You're welcome to act for the previous night, but I'm hoping to establish a routine for resolving non-event days before things stall completely. My FTF game has just moved onto the next section of the module, and handling this first section is much easier FaceToFace. Though they also had less time to react to situations and events leading to some interesting outcomes. :-)


Male Half-Orc Wizard 2 - HP 11/21, 0 non-lethal, AC15, CMD16, F+2, R+1, W+2, Prescience 0/5

Sorry there isn't much productive I can do in the evening but I was mostly waiting for others to do something to work off. Probably should have just done something stupid to continue to build a reputation as a mean and stupid half-orc.


Male Human (Taldan) Buccaneer 3- HP 25/25, AC15, CMD15, F+3, R+4, W+1, 0/12 BP Used, 0/4 Lvl 1 Spells Used

Ok thanks i'll retcon something in later today. Keeping up momentum is definitely important :)

I think the NPC list isn't up to date, Cog is still listed as Indifferent.


Deity

Thanks- Crimson updated.


If Nakon seems passive its because he is. No interest in trying to influence the crew (even if he wasn't mechanically bad at it) now he has his focus and stuff back.

I've wondered maybe ten times if I should have made a more gregarious character. But he's not and suddenly becoming so doesn't make much sense now. At this stage he's more reactive and basically waiting for level 2 when the real fun starts.

None of this makes him much of a team player but the idea is that he eventually ends up the enforcer type (like Plugg is now) for whoever ends up being captain. An unpredicatable and crazy follower but a relatively loyal one nonetheless (as long as he gets to do what he likes to do). If he thought about it he'd be going for the evil Sevien over the neutral Xantrius or heaven forbid good Lysandra but we'll see what happens.


Deity

Patience. There's plenty of violence. Especially once you hit level 2. :-)


Male Human Cleric 3 (FC) HP: 25/25 AC: 16

Sevien doesn't "seem" very evil to this point. But he is a lying, cheating, evil hearted bastard (not including infernal contracts). He is trying to play it smart. He is working is way into the group and crew until he get's enough power. Freedom is his first concern.
So far Lysandra and Sandara are on his good side and Nakon seems like a useful tool, in the manner mentioned above. He is still evaluating the other's for their uses... :]

Being physically weak he prefers to manipulate from the shadows anyways. He wouldn't want to be the "Captain" because that is to big of a target or face. He would really rather be the real power behind the face... :)

Looking forward to having half the crew skeletons!!!!!!! Muh ha ha ha!!!


It does look like Xantrius giving the orders while Sevien whispers in his ear and the others do the dirty work.


Male Half-Orc Wizard 2 - HP 11/21, 0 non-lethal, AC15, CMD16, F+2, R+1, W+2, Prescience 0/5

I'm away on a work trip for 4 days, I might be able to make a short post once or twice but I suspect I'll be out of contact.


Male Human Cleric 3 (FC) HP: 25/25 AC: 16

Camping this weekend so I won't be able to post again until Sunday evening EST. Cheers!

I'm now finally moving up to Southampton for university. Things will be hectic for me but will settle down on the 1st of October, at which time expect much more posting from me.

I'll try and weigh in where possible but please don't let the game be waiting for me on anything except combat. Assume my character is passive and goes with the flow. Should be able to keep up with combats but perhaps not more than that and if i'm too slow, bot me.


Male Human (Taldan) Buccaneer 3- HP 25/25, AC15, CMD15, F+3, R+4, W+1, 0/12 BP Used, 0/4 Lvl 1 Spells Used

So I didn't get any ship actions for Day 9 then?


Deity

If Xantrius speaks to Aretta before Sevien on day 9, his roll fails. If he does it afterwards the rules arbitrarily say only one influence on an NPC per day and, roleplay wise, no one really has time or inclination after 36 hours solid work.
No one else took a night time action, so I skipped ahead.

To compensate, on Day 10, your diplomacy actions with Aretta went before Sevien, and with Giffer after Lysandra, ignoring the one influence on an NPC a day rule for roleplay purposes, and where they would both work to succeed with maximum effect. Roleplay wise much easier to write since Xantrius gets another day off and has plenty of time. :-)


Male Human (Taldan) Buccaneer 3- HP 25/25, AC15, CMD15, F+3, R+4, W+1, 0/12 BP Used, 0/4 Lvl 1 Spells Used

I thought it was one influence per day per PC. Good to know.


Male Half-Orc Wizard 2 - HP 11/21, 0 non-lethal, AC15, CMD16, F+2, R+1, W+2, Prescience 0/5

I'm away over the weekend for work, I may or may not get a chance to check posts on my phone.


Male Half-Orc Wizard 2 - HP 11/21, 0 non-lethal, AC15, CMD16, F+2, R+1, W+2, Prescience 0/5

Just checking it's not my turn to act in the combat. I was waiting for Hakon and the creature let me know if I should be acting.

Due to lack of time and a great deal of difficulty getting into this AP on my part, I will be dropping out of this one. This is nota reflection of my opinion of Dave's abilitirs as a GM, as I think he is doing a good job with source material. See you all in our other games, or perhaps another game in the future (provided the time to do so). Happt gaming.

I'm away over this weekend, I'll have my phone but reception is poor. (in addition I'll be away the next two weekends as well although my phone reception is likely to better for those weekends). In addition just a warning the next two or three weeks are the busiest time in the year for my work so posts are likely to be even briefer than normal, sorry.

Right you are, thanks. Carry on. :-)


I'm not stressed but is the plan to continue with 4 at this stage?


Deity

That is the plan, if you guys are happy with it. If you have someone you think would be a good addition, please make a recommendation. Being press ganged on a ship in the middle of the sea, however, does make shuffling characters difficult. There will be some opportunities that arise though so it certainly isn't impossible but will require some waiting in the wings.

Just letting people know I am away for the weekend (although mighthave phone reception).


Male Half-Orc Wizard 2 - HP 11/21, 0 non-lethal, AC15, CMD16, F+2, R+1, W+2, Prescience 0/5

I'm heading to Brisbane for Friday and the weekend. I should have good phone reception so will at least be able to post short replies if need be.
