Did Tarragon get any of the profits or does he have to wait for the next mission?

T, you received 1309gp wiht the rest of us.

I think we should all pitch in on the communal clw wand at 125 gp each. that way we save spells and can spend more on one big cure potion for emergencies.

To my growing pile of goodies I wil buy the following:
scrolls of resist energyx2 300
Troll Styptic alchem 100
Antiplague alchem 50

I'll chip in, wand probably best with Boneyard, less chance of being unconscious.


Male Oread Student of Stone Flowing Monk/4 Lore Warden 2 (AC 22/21/18, HP 53/53, Fort +9, Ref +8, Will +7)

I can chip in as well.

Ok, 150gp as it stands now. If Tarragon wants to chip in then its 125 each.

We should also consider doing the same for a wand of lsr restore.


Runelords

boneyard you may put a scroll in there, no problem

I'm in for 125 for the wand of lesser restoration too and after that I'm out of cash for now.


Runelords

Tarragon:
What is your particular Ironborn burden? You have not made any mention of doing something yet. I had forgotten since it was so long. I don't overly care what it is but it does need to happen. In all likelihood it will not effect anything, but per the example of not being allowed to pray and prison and going berserk it could come up at some point, if everyone lives long enough

I hate to break it this way, but he does engage in an activity each day that relates to his class. He meditates for his spells. By that definition he does something that relates to his class.

Unless you feel that is not appropriate this is what he does since it is required to regain spells every day.


Runelords

Tarragon:
I think that is a cop out. I am not asking for the sun and the moon for it. But something additional, since that is akin to sleeping and eating. It can be as simple as practicing forms with the sword for half an hour if you like, but it needs to be something I think.

You asked and I told you. If you wanted more than that you should have stated it from the beginning.

As for doing something, he finds small broken objects that need repairing each day and casts mending on them for the respective owner. This way he can do something kind for others.


Runelords

Tarragon:
I am not trying to be combative. You asked to play a very different type of character, outside of the original recruitment. I am trying to keep up with it as best I can. I am sorry if you are frustrated. That said. I do not think mending items fits in with the oracle of battle that you have created. If you were created to fix things then why an orcale of battle? Further what will you do in the tower if there is nothing broken that needs fixing?

This next thing I have a feeling will read wrong, so please do not read it as snarky or frustrated or anything of the like, I m simply going to make sure that we are on the same page.

This is a requirement of the race and my game, I had forgotten it in the time between recruitment and you joining. During recruitment I did not press the issue as I had assumed it would become clear through your play and it has not. However you MUST do something that fits with your purpose when you were created, if you were created to fix things then we have a problem that needs to be retconned. Likely an alteration to your build or backstory if you feel mending fits.

I was excited to have you join, but if my playstyle and knowledge does not fit with yours I understand, I am starting to wonder if it does. As evidenced by this as well as your challenging of the drow dispelling your fog cloud. Perhaps I am reading your posts wrong but they come off as snarky.

MiniGm:
I apologize if I came across as snarky. The reason I feel as I do about this is the following:

I decided on his fixing things so as to show to Iomedae that he doesn't just want to kill or hurt but also to build. If you look at his skills you will note that he has a very good diplomacy. I chose that for a very specific reason. If someone as he can get others to listen and change their attitude it will go a long way to helping the cause of Iomedae. Not to mention there are other ways of fighting.

It is easy to destroy but harder to build. He can and will step up to battle when the time is right.

An ironborn must engage in activities relating to its class each day, whether it simply practices its skills or uses them to accomplish a task. This means that anything that relates to being an Oracle will work for the purposes of the burden, whether casting a spell or using a weapon. If you wish to change the wording and flavor of this aspect of the race let me know and we can work out something.

I hope this helps to show why I had him do what he did.

As to the fog cloud, I just wanted to make sure you knew the spell. Sometimes we forget little details and it has a duration longer than a round.


Runelords

Tarragon:
If you want to go with fixing something each day that is fine. I read it as being a specific task, not anything at all that could relate to being an oracle. As an Oracle of Battle I tend to lean towards something battle related, but on the other hand I can buy the logic behind building not destroying.

For me you have to make a choice of a single task as to what it is. IE Weapons practice, repairing something, cooking breakfast, doing a ritual dance, making a journal for everyone, whatever (obviously some of those dont fit your character). I am worried that you are going to be in a bind inside the spire if no one has something broken to be fixed, but hey I am happy to RP it. Might mean you lose it and break something only to fix it...which could have repurcussions later.

Yes, NPC Codex. I have the PDF since I'm a subscriber and it looks great. Very helpful for the time pressed GM and chock full of new art. They did a couple previews in the blog too.


Runelords

well if you already have boneyard, maybe you should take over for a bit!

No...I have evil evil machinations in motion.

I am a pretty cheap fellow, so I haven't bought it. But I am thinking about it. Let me know what you think if you get a chance to look at it more in depth

I am thinking I will choose an action to fulfill the burden that is dependent on the circumstances. For example: when in the city he has other options available than he would otherwise.

Sound fair?


Runelords

Tarragon:
Nope. I need you to pick your burden. It can be a bit vague, such as fixing something, that can be a weapon a chair etc. or singing the glory of Iomedae which could be done a number of ways as well. But I do not want it to be "I will just do something whereever I am." This is one of those things that you have to make your choice and roll with it. So choose wisely grasshopper

MiniGm:
I didn't realize that you wanted to alter the race. Let me show you how the burden works.

An Ironborn’s Burden:

This is straight from the book. Word for word.

All ironborn have what they call a burden, which is the role or position they were created to fulfill. The magical process used to create them uses this overriding purpose to help give an ironborn’s nascent personality the force and will it needs to achieve true life.

An ironborn must engage in activities relating to its class each day, whether it simply practices its skills or uses them to accomplish a task. For example, an ironborn fighter might have to engage in combat, whether a mock fight or a real one, each day. For each day an ironborn fails to exercise its abilities, it slowly becomes more irritable, angry, and prone to lashing out with its talents in order to use them. At the start of each new day, an ironborn must make a Will save with a DC equal to 10 + the number of consecutive days it has been unable to use its abilities. If it fails this save, at some point during the day the ironborn loses control and makes use of its abilities regardless of the situation. If it cannot do so for any reason, such as if the proper materials are not available or it is physically restrained from exercising its abilities, it lashes out at the nearest living creature, attacking by any means available for 2d6 rounds. At the end of this time, it returns to normal. If no foes are present, it vents its rage against inanimate objects. An ironborn that lashes out in this manner must still make another save the next day, since it has not yet fulfilled its burden.

This drawback is intended as a piece of background color to illustrate an ironborn’s mechanical nature. All of these creatures were built for a purpose, and they pursue it with a focus that is at times maniacal. Most PC ironborn can easily get around this drawback, and it does not serve as a balance against the benefits of the ironborn’s abilities. Instead, Dms can use it as a part of an adventure or as part of a story in the game. For example, an ironborn paladin might be thrown in jail by suspicious townsfolk. When the jailers stop him from praying each day, he may go berserk and make it that much harder for the other PCs to convince the mayor to release their friend.

MiniGm:
Nowhere does it say that a specific activity must be chosen and cannot be changed once it is.

In light of this, I will pick what I do and when. This is how the book says it goes, and you agreed to the race as written. Please stop telling me how to play my character.

You are coming across as a jerk right now. I advise you to chill.

BTW, today is Pathfinder Society day for me so I'll be out of pocket for a few hours now.


Runelords

Hey guys. I hate to be a downer. However, Tarragon and I cannot seem to agree on things. It is completely my fault for not being a strong enough DM, however because I am the DM and it seems silly for me to leave the campaign I have asked him to leave.

I really liked the character and the creativity, but I just felt like I was not "playing well" with him. I apologize to all of you, and even moreso to him.

Edit: I do hope that the rest of you will continue to play.

Kracow will pick up a few L0 scrolls of arcane mark if that spell fulfills his magic addiction needs. It says a personal mark but not sure that is the same as detect magic or read magic.

I imagine Kracow would write on his arms like a goth girl cutting her leg. So he can feel the magic...


Runelords

sorry kracow, i think that is a little bit gaming the system!


Runelords

Boneyard didnt you use the scroll of breath of life on Ehad? Or was that an error of my memory...or did you buy another one that i missed

and i just found a terrible critter trolling the boards. muahahahaha


Male Oread Student of Stone Flowing Monk/4 Lore Warden 2 (AC 22/21/18, HP 53/53, Fort +9, Ref +8, Will +7)

I think another one was bought. Also, would we want to try mythic now? I don't think anyone here had opposition to it. I could be wrong though.

Bought a new one. Blood Biography too. But, check my list above in case there are any items you don't like. Post #452.

I'm still game for Mythic. Not sure how well Trickster is going to fit, but it will force me to dig into those rules and offer feedback.


Runelords

ah there it is, just skimmed over it, i did see the blood biography and treasure map.

Let me throw the mythic option back on the Table.

As before any objections and it is a no go. Before I believe the only one was Tarargon.

If we do go it will be something tha thappens to everyone, rather than a choice, so it does mean that I would randomize everyone's weaknesses. Ehad is familiar with this.

In the other game we are in, an artifact detonated next to them and now they are mythicly awesome. Ehad's character has a dependency on Bread. Which is funny because he is a frog man :)

EDIT ALL I RECOMEND ADDING TARRAGON'S CUT TO A PARTY RESOURCE POOL, BUT YOU CAN ALSO JUST EVERYONE GET A LITTLE MORE CASH.


Runelords

also those are great finds there from the new pdf. If I have some checks waiting for me at home I might just cave and purchase.

You can expect that encounter in your honor sir pyke
