The only problem I can see is low DC checks. DC5 climb check on a ladder high above the ground with orcs shooting. A roll of one gives me a -9 total so I needed a +14 climb to succeed. Can't take 10 there. But I think it is possible that, in stressful situations, even the best can fail. Bottom line: I am game for this.

Sadly, the lucky halfling feat doesn't apply to skills. So us small folks can't help there.

It's your game chaos so I do't mind trying out some custom stuff...

DM Chaos - no issues with the proposed skill check revisions.

Sorry for taking a while to get back to everyone - weekends are my busy time at home so I don't get much chance to post.

I did see the suggestion of the Taldor Horse... but in this case it's a little more difficult to consider, as they are likely acting on a lawful issue (pursuit and apprehension of Maegge) - which puts shades of grey on how the Taldor Horse / guard would react.


Glorfin - I know that weekends are your slow time, so not problems.

I figured that in an AD&D module/game, this would be appreciated.

I was at a game store today looking through a bunch of old modules in sealed plastic and ended up buying A1: Slave Pits of the Undercity for $20. They also had A4, and TWO copies of B2. None were new/original/sealed, but pretty cool regardless.


Male Human Cleric 3 (FC) AC 20 HP 29/29 F: +5 R: +2 W:+5 Perc: +2

I ran the slavelords back in the early 90's...I liked them personally. Anyways I am looking forward to see how this translates into PF since I know little about this module other than some bits and pieces I heard over the years...something about a temple of elemental evil... :]

Glorfin Umbar-Caeli wrote:
Glorfin turns and locks gaze with Braden. No words are said, though it is clear that he has taken personal insult at Braden's mocking of his proposal and Maegge's wholesale rejection of it. A few moments pass as Glorfin thinks before he turns to the hunter and intones "They reject my words and my honor, so I will not hold you to any terms of my making. With that, your fate is no longer of my concern. Fare well hunter."

I fail to understand how Glorfin's proposal was substantially different than what Maegge decided: if anything, I incorporated as much of it as possible into something that might actually have "worked" and thought Glorfin would actually approve of! As far as I can tell, the only real difference was in not requiring it be written down.

Please help me out here, because I'm really trying for Maegge to make friends with him or at least not be thought a complete imbecile.

Maegge - the intent was stronger towards Braden's comments than yours. From your side it is essentially the subtext that your final comment had an oath made under duress is no oath at all. To Glorfin that implies that you accepted Braden's view on the matter more strongly than his own. And following on that you agreed with Braden's passive agressive statements about how he believed Glorfin was comporting himself.

Sure the end result was likely no different... but the path towards it varied.

OK that makes sense. Thank you.

I do hope that Glorfin won't be seen as one of the rod up the butt Paladins for this PbP. It is my first real attempt at a bonafide Paladin, and I'm trying hard to ensure that he isn't too disruptive or painful to endure.


Lol - I am enjoying the interaction.

I'll be getting a post up momentarily (as I go through my campaigns).


Good grief, I go out to dinner and when I return you guys have 14 more posts, will try to get something up before I call it a night.

For anyone interested, here is the map that the Corporal of Horse showed you and let you copy.

Northwest Taldor Map

The dark lines are major roads/trade routes. The dotted lines, such as what you are currently on, are smaller roads, some not much more than paths, and some such as through the Fog Peaks may not have been used in years with the pullback of the Taldor Horse.

I can't say that Tybek is the most playful sort, but he could not resist the temptation to throw a snowball at someone! I think he would find it all rather amusing until he started getting hit himself. Then he would be rather annoyed with the whole situation.


HP 25/25; Per +12 (+2 outside); AC 16, Touch 14, Flat 13; Gimpy HP 28/28; Per +6; AC 18, Touch 14, Flat 14

Glorfin's singing should qualify as Aid-ing Maegge and Gimpy's poor Stealth rolls!

That was certainly the intent ;)

Nice song. Everytime I post here I have a strange appetite for pancakes.

I'll likely be plundering Welsh, Cornish and Irish folk songs for anything that Glorfin needs to come up with.... won't quite be as fun as when my halfling pirate bastardizes sea shanties, but should be appropriately flavorful :)


I usually just make things rhyme.

For easier reference, I've added Gimpy's HP and AC stats to my statline.


Thanks, they were not hard to find, but definitely that makes it easier.


Dwarf Rogue 3 (hp: 31/31, AC 18, Touch 14, Flat 14, Perception +7 (+9 Traps), Stealth +13)

Chaos, could you please clarify? I was sure you were fine with posting out of sequence. Does the bold name indicate that those characters are unresolved. I have already posted my round 1, but Tybek is indicated as bold. Does that mean that I should go ahead and post round 2 or that you simply have not resolved his round 1?


My bad, I forgot you had posted earlier. Will resolve it with the next post once Braden also posts. Then it will be Glorfin and back to the top.

An animal trained to bear a rider into combat knows the tricks attack, come, defend, down, guard, and heel.

Gimpy has all of those tricks, so there shouldn't be a problem with riding him in combat.

Now you just have to see if he can survive the first fireball we get hit by... :]


Mmmm, barbecue elk sounds so good.


HP 25/25; Per +12 (+2 outside); AC 16, Touch 14, Flat 13; Gimpy HP 28/28; Per +6; AC 18, Touch 14, Flat 14

Barbeque (almost) anything sounds good right now... haven't eaten lunch yet!

Note: while there shouldn't be a problem with riding him in combat, his utility in combat, however, begs the question "why bother?".


Male Human Cleric 3 (FC) AC 20 HP 29/29 F: +5 R: +2 W:+5 Perc: +2

What is the Elk based on for an animal companion?

DM Chaos, do you want me to spoiler my current status and effects goiing forward?


HP 25/25; Per +12 (+2 outside); AC 16, Touch 14, Flat 13; Gimpy HP 28/28; Per +6; AC 18, Touch 14, Flat 14

Elk is a base companion out of Bestiary 3.


The more you put in spoilers like HP, saves, key skills (Perception, Acrobatics, etc), AC, spells in effect, and so forth, the easier it is for me. I am doing it in a few campaigns and while it is hard to remember, when I do it it makes things much easier for me as well. -- How many rounds left on that Wall of Fire???

The Elk is in the list on the D20 site - and really, as long as it is reasonable and does not make things unbalanced, a druid should be able to have any animal common to wherever they are from in my opinion. Ok, a rhino or elephant or killer whale might be a little much, but elk, deer, lions, tigers and bears are all the norm.

The reason why I was asking is that almost all monsters don't have any negatives for secondary attacks anymore and I kept seeing you doign hoof attacks with a -3...just curious about that.

'Hoof' is a secondary attack that goes at -5 attack from the primary, 'gore'.

PRD - Natural Attacks

Natural Attacks by Size

And while I'm at it, Elk Animal Companion

Thank you for asking about it, though, as having to look things up to verify they're correct helps me remember everything I need to keep straight. This is my first "primary caster" AND first "pet class", so there's a lot. :D

Well, as I told most of you in whichever other campaign (or campaigns in some cases) I am in with you, this is my fist DMing in 20 years other than my 6 and 8 year olds, so I have a bit of a learning curve. Fortunately I have some great DMs to learn from.


Male Human Cleric 3 (FC) AC 20 HP 29/29 F: +5 R: +2 W:+5 Perc: +2

I have played a PF druid before and I think you are playing his attacks incorrectly.

Here is the quote from the core rules, it is pretty specific.
"Animal Choices
Each animal companion has different starting sizes, speed, attacks, ability scores, and special qualities. All animal attacks are made using the creature's full base attack bonus unless otherwise noted. Animal attacks add the animal's Strength modifier to the damage roll, unless it is its only attack, in which case it adds 1-1/2 its Strength modifier. Some have special abilities, such as scent. See Special Abilities for more information on these abilities. As you gain levels, your animal companion improves as well, usually at 4th or 7th level, in addition to the standard bonuses noted on Table: Animal Companion Base Statistics. Instead of taking the listed benefit at 4th or 7th level, you can instead choose to increase the companion's Dexterity and Constitution by 2."

It is not noted in the description of the Elk therefore it gets all attacks at its base bonus.


Hobbit [hp = 19/22; AC14/T14/ff11; F +1; R+3; W+4 CMD 12]

Thank you -- any day you learn something is a successful day.

I read this rule differently. Although you added the full BAB, I still assumed secondary penalties applied. I did not know that by being an animal companion you got to treat all natural attacks as primaries unless noted.

But you are 100% right. On the PRD for companions, the horse is specifically noted to have secondaries. Almost all others are not so noted.

Horse

Starting Statistics: Size Large; Speed 50 ft.; AC +4 natural armor; Attack bite (1d4), 2 hooves* (1d6); Ability Scores Str 16, Dex 13, Con 15, Int 2, Wis 12, Cha 6; Special Qualities low-light vision, scent. *This is a secondary natural attack, see Combat for more information on how secondary attacks work


Although if you look at the Elk it is:

Attack gore (1d6) or 2 hooves (1d3)

Thus, you do not get both attacks, it is either 1 gore, or 2 hooves.


Hobbit [hp = 19/22; AC14/T14/ff11; F +1; R+3; W+4 CMD 12]

Maybe elks can use antlers and hoofs at the same time.

I think the "or" settles it. Good thing he can't hit a damn thing anyway, or I'd feel bad for making so many illegal attacks.

My nine-month-old just tipped over a full cup of coffee that was resting on our laptop... time to go shopping! I just thought we'd have more time before he became The Destructicon™! Yes, I know, the cup shouldn't have been there in the first place.

Maegge - unlucky, though on the bright side - new laptop!

DM Chaos - Glorfin is planning to continue on the main road and I'm guessing Jaroo is at number 10?


HP 25/25; Per +12 (+2 outside); AC 16, Touch 14, Flat 13; Gimpy HP 28/28; Per +6; AC 18, Touch 14, Flat 14

It was a sort-of new laptop, being only a year old. The plus side to this is that I can get the exact same model for $330 instead of the almost $500 I paid last year.


The grove is actually 24. 10 is a weaver.
