@Jasmine: Constitution checks aren't skill checks so you can't apply the bonus to it, sorry. Thankfully, you made it anyways!

Oops...RAW


Game Master

I admit. I'm a dick GM on stuff like that. :D


Game Master

By the way, I hope I'm playing those two jackasses (Plugg and Scourge) well enough to generate at least a little bit of hate.

@DM can you explain where we bunk down and who is in that area? I'm trying to get a feel for nighttime activity and how convenient it is, or isn't, to talk and interact with to other PC's.

Yup, Allysen is no lubber, Mister Plugg has just earned him a spot on Allysen's slit-throat-if-the-ship-goes-down list. She also isn't too happy about the oar to the back of the head.

You are playing those two very well. Yes, Jasmine actually hates Scourge already. In fact, that was going to be the topic of my next conversation with the witch. To start putting a list together...Scourge is on Jasmine's painfully slow death list. Perhaps, She will be able to convice the sea witch to heal Scourge up just enough, so we can continue the torture his soul a bit long...the LE side of the elf is emerging.


Game Master

@Jasmine: You bunk in the lower holds and crew berths with the rest of the common riff-raff. It'll be very convenient to talk with the PCs there, as well as the NPCs when they decide to start interacting with you new bloods. Watch what you say and where though; the First Mate and the boatswain have lickspittles among the pirates that'll probably tattle any mutinous talk. People are mostly avoiding you all at the moment as work goes on since Plugg and Scourge are keeping an extra sharp eye on you four but that'll pass quickly once people all get caught up to nighttime affairs.

@GM, thanks. I wanted to know if the other PCs will be in the smae sleeping hold. As we will eventually try to interact with one another.


Male Human Sea witch 1, Init +2, AC 12, Fort +1, Ref +2, Will +4

Oh, believe me, you've already generated enough hatred for me to want to find a visceral, non-magic way of killing them both.

@Guess we are having a good time :-)


Game Master

There's like 10,000 NPCs to introduce in this adventure as well. To be fair, 18 other pirates, and 12 officers in total. So it's going to be especially fun getting that running.

Sorry I've been so silent - I had to attend a couple of board meetings tonight. I'm back now and about to get into pj's and sit down in front of the computer for some rp time. Looks like I have a lot of reading to do first though


Game Master

No worries!

Here's an important post to read over.

Also, I'm treating "work diligently" as you being 100% focused on doing your job so besides a few exchanged words with your crew mates, maybe an offered name or a grunt of affirmation, there's not much talking going on. I'm also running with that since "Influence" is listed as an extra action and it'd be silly to run a convo with an NPC but not allow you to do a Diplomacy check to improve their attitude towards the party.


F Elf Wizard, Air Elemental, Lv 3, Init. 9,, P 5, AC 13 (21), 13T, 10 (18)FF, HP 13/13, F2,R 4 , W3, CMB 1, CMD14

@GM or others who know the answer. How do you hyperlink to a previousl post?


Game Master

Highlight the time elapsed (IE. "6 minutes ago"), copy the link address, then hyperlink it.


Game Master

You guys can also use the gather information part of Diplomacy to learn gossip about the officers if you wish as well during your work time.

I also have descriptions of the NPCs on their aliases to remind players of what they look like.

When you say "then hyperlink it' how is that done...what the keyboard stroke.


Game Master

[ url=theurlhere.com ]LINK TEXT[ /url ] (just don't put the spaces)

should I try again? do I need to make an acrobatics check to avoid getting hurt?

roll up a new character...hahahaha...Just teasing. Perhaps they were tripletes!

LMAO, unfortunately no, just twins. ;p


Game Master

Nah, nothing like that. The check is basically a roll to see how well you did at your job. If you fail the DC, you didn't do that great of a job, in this case you didn't even make it up the rigging! You just keep rolling until you get the DCs, with punishments going up if you keep failing.

ok... i kept rolling til I made the dc's LOL... the dicebot doesn't love me tonight.

Allysen reminds me somewhat of Arya Stark from Game of Thrones. Well, A Song of Ice and Fire, but I haven't read the books. The whole girl-purposefully-being-mistaken-for-a-boy thing I suppose is the point of comparison.


Game Master

I'm going to be updating a description of the Wormwood in my profile to make it easier for you guys to remember where everyone's been and also to help you see it in your mind's eye.


Game Master

Alright, the information has been updated here.

Also, to make things easier, when you're taking the Sneak action, let me know where so I can update things accordingly. I've bolded the locations names on the "map" in my profile to help out.

Huh, I hadn't even thought of that and I read the book.

Hey...the cooks better not eat my familiar...

@GM should I assume that for Jasmine to inquire as to purpose of the quartermaster shop and ohw the trade and sale of items are handled would require a daytime ship action? If so, that is fine and I will wait till tomorrow. If not, she will talk to Grok.


Game Master

Dodos became extinct due to excessive gastronomical overindulgence!

The evenin' meal---Dodo a l'orange!

Yeah, it requires a daytime ship action. Grok closes up shop at about 3 in the afternoon and starts dipping into the rum.

If you befriend her, though, she can be convinced to open up shop "after hours"...

@GM do I ahve the empathic link going with Flotsam yet? As in he was already with me when I was gangpressed or is this the link going to develop now that we are both on board.

Its important because, if Jasmine knows he is there...she will start to look for him.


Game Master

It's up to you whether Flotsam was Jasmine's familiar before. If so, then yes.


Game Master

@Jasmine: It seems you have an admirer in Master Scourge! Don't worry though, your not the only one he'll have his eyes set on. Just in a slightly different way.

I'm going to wait for Amerdan and Allysen to post before going onto Seijiro's beats. That and my son's hijacked my computer to watch Madagascar and all my notes, and my pdf, are there. :D

No problem. I just spent the last two hours watching American Idiol with my daughter. I completely understand.


Game Master

You know, when I first read that sentence, it looked like you typed "American Idiot" and I was thinking that's a long time to watch a Green Day song.

LOL. Tht would have been looped. More like two hours of a Green Day concert, that would have been good.

@Jasmine: I'm resisting the urge to name my familiar "Jetsam."

@Amerdan that is funny. That wass the backup name. I thought Flotsam was approapirate...wreckage...dodo's don't fly...sort of float.

What is your familiar going to be an Otter?


Male Human Sea witch 1, Init +2, AC 12, Fort +1, Ref +2, Will +4

Yeah, but I'm still struggling to figure out a name, unfortunately.

@Jetsam works.


Male Human Sea witch 1, Init +2, AC 12, Fort +1, Ref +2, Will +4

I did a (very) quick character portrait of Amerdan if you guys are interested in seeing what he looks like!

Click me to go to DeviantART...!

very cool char pic... too bad we can't use our own art here for our avatars. You are very talented. I like the otter too. He's rather buff looking for an arcane caster you know ;) lol... anyway, great job!

Hey, he's got a 12 Constitution...yeah, the muscles came out larger than I had intended, but I confess, I didn't spend a whole lot of time on it.

And thank you for the compliment! :)

I took a look at your gallery while I was there... I'm very impressed! I'd show you my gallery, but it's just full of quilts, nothing interesting there for gamers! lol. I especially like the mage and monk portrait - awesome action poses!

Well, unfortunately, I can only take credit for the coloring job on that one. I commissioned another artist on DeviantART named Wes Talbott, whose work is astounding, to do the line art.

And hey, quilts are awesome.

A Question for Our Awesome GM:

You stated earlier what attracted you to Jasmine and Seijiro, but what was it about Allysen and Amerdan that made you pick them out of so many submissions?

Ah.. I thought the style looked a little different, but I figured you were just being adventurous or something. I like your character portraits too - like the adventuring party ones. Your pics of William in different ages are pretty neat also - I'm a huge fan of VtM! Just out of curiosity do you do commissions?

And if you want to take a look, my quilts are at my deviantart site
