Tales from the City of Opal

Game Master Patrick Curtin

This is my homebrew world Arcaia. This particular setting is the free city of Opal, a lush equatorial city set on the edge of an immense jungle rife with undead , ancient civilizations, and dinosaurs.

Good to hear you are still out and about Nathan. I was worried you might have dropped out all together. Bryan can keep running you, though the recent pratfall might be costly .. :O

No kidding. A 2 and a 5 on consecutive IC rolls. Maybe they just stick in my mind more, but it feels like IC gives me an inordinate number of rolls lower than 6 ...

Didn't you see Joleesa's To Hit rolls for herself and "Wheezy"?

2 and 3...

Not to mention Vilya's long strings of natural 1s. And, I'm not even using IC. I alternate between real dice and a random number generator.

Sure, hold everyone else up just because you want to go to Paizocon and have a blast. What nerve! What selfishness! And d@mmit to hell, why didn't I go too?

Alrighty. In my new house, computer is set up, and best of all, I can hijack my neighbor's wireless signal!!
So I will be able to reassume control of Izkrael now. Thanks again for everyone's patience, and Bryan, thanks for taking care of him for me.

Welcome back Nathan! Iz got out of the pickle he was in, and you'll be happy to know you guys are almost done with the zombies!

No problem. Hope you don't mind the two burnt action points; seemed better than a slow crawl while being clawed at ...

I can understand using them, but burning them? Sounds wasteful to me. ;)

Really though, I don't mind. Just glad he's still alive, and was able to help clear some rot-bags out of the way.

Good job all, take a level, you deserve it. I'll try to make the encounters a little less daunting next time :P

You did well making us use up all of our Positive Channels early on before we got to the final fight. Made it a challenge. Well done. :)

If we still hadda had Positive Channels left, that last fight would have been a cake walk. It was fun that Zombies gave us a run for our money...

I think I preferred it not being a cake walk. Vilya sure livened things up, and I had visions of Legolas/Gimli while Iz and San were side-by-side mowing down zombies, with arrows and magic rays flying by, all while a war song is sung in the background ... definitely a blast!

Patrick, not sure if it was discussed before, but how are we doing hp as we level up?

I hadn't given much thought. I kinda dislike random rolling on that, it leads to hard feelings. Just take max points.

Well, I'm updated now. Yes, I know it's technically just Hideous Laughter now, but it just sounds wrong without Tasha.

Hey all, posting might be a bit spotty this weekend, due to the festivities. I Just got my Critical hit deck, so I will only need assistance with the fumble side of things.

Heh. Thought I had a creepy sinister visual cooked up, then found out the Japanese had made a porn industry out of it. Ick.

So... they have porn about thining about porn? In that case, Rule 34 equals porn recursion.

Yep. There's even porn about the picture that named Rule 34. Truly, if you can think of something that no-one has ever fantasied about, someone has already made a website devoted to pornography about it.

(Note: If you want to see the aforementioned picture (no, not the porn about it), just go to TvTropes, not Google Image Search. If you use GIS, there's one picture I'm referring to and a page of pictures you can't forget, no matter how much brain bleach you use.)

I guess it's just jealousy that my 'original' visual has been so thourouhly 'explored' by others. But as Warhol said: 'Pop will eat itself'. We're all just yoinking vultures circling the bloated carcass of pop culture anyway.

Pat, San is mostly done. Just one question - when I built him, I chose Skill Focus (Spellcraft) as his bonus feat at 1st level mainly for the bump to cast defensively (him being a fighter/mage type). Since that's no longer related to Spellcraft, do you mind if I swap it out for Skill Focus (Knowledge (religion))?

Thanks! (Cool; with the favored enemy bonus also applying to knowledge skill checks, San has a +16 on knowledge (religion) checks against undead at just 4th level - perfect for your all-purpose undead hunting ranger/mage!)

Just FYI ; ). The last combat Vilya took a move action in the last round and did a full attack. She should probably only have had one attack at her highest bonus, not two. Full attack is a full round action, and shouldn't allow more movement than a 5' step.

Ah. The way it worked out in my head was that she took one round to sneak around one side, getting within five feet, and another round to attack. I should have made that more clear. Sorry.
