Game Master lynora

This is a high level rules light game set in a school for magical kids, kinda a mash-up of Soul Eater, Harry Potter, and X-Men. :)

Well, at least I wasn't the only one thinking it. I'm just not sure how your parents made it this long with so much of their sanity left....not that you haven't made great strides towards breaking that down of late. :P

Well, I have more than a few years to catch up on, don't I? Boredom mad it so they couldn't really stay angry or even be surprised after a while. It's amazing what having emotions can do for the causing of mental breakdowns in others.

The Posion/Illiteracy Reduction is a wonderful idea.

Quick, make an off-handed comment about how we all need a large, deep-dish pizza of our choice!


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

lol. I totally missed that poster the first time I read that.


Today is moving day for me. Luckily, I'm not gonna have a day without internet. Unluckily, I won't be able to post much for the next two days as my brother is graduating from university tomorrow as well. It's gonna be a hectic couple days. I'll try to squeeze in a couple posts right now to keep things moving.

Shadow Lodge

Good luck with moving day! Hope nothing breaks.

The similarities between characters from Girl Genius and characters Lynora has in Agartha are really quite close. Like Violetta, who is no good at being a Shadow Knight and Kitty, who is no good at being a Ninja.

I'm half expecting a talking cat in a fancy coat to come waltzing in on two legs any time now.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

We had a talking cat but the player wandered off. No fancy coat though. :)

Shadow Lodge

Hm... would the half-ogres count as Jaeger? No questions that the scientists are Sparks, crazy as they all are.

And we had two talking cats actually, it's just that Ruji doesn't get a lot of face time.


Warforged Engineer Alchemist 16/Armiger 16 Champion of Creation

Sorry bout that, but I'm back. I haven't had access in longer than I thought I wouldn't. I've been either busy or sleeping. I'll catch up real quick, and post soon.

So basically we just need to give Ruji a fancy dress coat....


*HISS*


Is it okay if I use a 3.5 template?


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Should be fine. Which template?


Tauric Creature, which happens to be my favorite template from 3.5.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I don't think I have the book with that one anymore. We got rid of most of our 3.5 books to save space. I don't remember if that one was insane or not.


It is monster manual II, you can make centaur like creatures with it. Example in the book is a hobgoblin/griffon.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Ah, the only 3.5 monster book I still own on account of it being the one with the gem dragons in it. :)

Doesn't look crazy. Well, a crazy amount of work and all that stuff about hit dice makes no sense. I don't comprehend rambling easily when I'm tired though. Should be fine.


FYI I'm gonna be away from internets for a chunk of tomorrow, but will be able to check in around midday (CST) and then should be free earlier than normal in the afternoon. Hoping plans can be confirmed and set into motion whilst I'm away, then I can keep combat moving and start tearing people apart.

I mean, KHODA can start tearing people apart. :-p


YEAH GET IT RIGHT, JERK

Please be gentle with Vai, it's her first time.


GENTLE?!

SWEETHEART I'M A LIGHTNING GOD NOT A LOTION GOD WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS IS


Female Half-elf Gestalt Sorcerer6/Dragon Disciple9 // Rogue (Swashbuckler)8/Duelist7

Lightning gives a nice tingle when I'm in dragon form. Pretty close to lotion, eh?

It puts the lotion on it's skin? ;P


Or else no more lightning again?


DON'T YOU HURT MY DOG


Bring on ye dog you great ol' spring shower you! Whatcha call it, Sparky?!

She is not alone. These guys are intense.


I wish Caedes could of tagged along. And yes these elementals are rough.

Just found that. I'd forgotten that was in the book. We dropped it early on in my real life game because it screwed over the players way more often than the bad guys (have I mentioned that my dice are trying to kill me?) and have been playing that way so long that I had forgotten it wasn't RAW.


I understand that feeling, I was always told charge was +2 to attack and damage as well as the -2 to AC. Found out from another GM that was just a house rule.

Shadow Lodge

I am... tempted to help. I know of a way, but it gets tricky if I implement it.


wait .. +2 attack and -2 AC on a charge is a house rule?! are you sure?

EDIT: I looked it up, and it is on page 198 of the pathfinder core rulebook. you do get +2 to attack and -2 to AC until the start of your next turn when executing a charge attack.

EDIT EDIT: excuse me for a second while i adjust my tape-held-together-in-the-middle nerd glasses.

Shadow Lodge

The +2 Damage part was the houserule.


ah .. didnt see that he included damage in that ..

here's to actually reading all the words on the page, neh?

goes and hides head under blanket


Assuming this is already resolved, but you can't critically fail or succeed a saving throw or skill check per PFR RAW, as Lyn mentions, unless that's been houseruled out in Agartha. :-)

ETA: Never mind, I"m an idiot. :-p


Saving Throws:

Saving Throws
Generally, when you are subject to an unusual or magical attack, you get a saving throw to avoid or reduce the effect. Like an attack roll, a saving throw is a d20 roll plus a bonus based on your class and level (see Classes), and an associated ability score. Your saving throw modifier is:

Base save bonus + ability modifier

Saving Throw Types: The three different kinds of saving throws are Fortitude, Reflex, and Will:

Fortitude: These saves measure your ability to stand up to physical punishment or attacks against your vitality and health. Apply your Constitution modifier to your Fortitude saving throws.

Reflex: These saves test your ability to dodge area attacks and unexpected situations. Apply your Dexterity modifier to your Reflex saving throws.

Will: These saves reflect your resistance to mental influence as well as many magical effects. Apply your Wisdom modifier to your Will saving throws.

Saving Throw Difficulty Class: The DC for a save is determined by the attack itself.

Automatic Failures and Successes: A natural 1 (the d20 comes up 1) on a saving throw is always a failure (and may cause damage to exposed items; see Items Surviving after a Saving Throw). A natural 20 (the d20 comes up 20) is always a success.


Also, could I ask that we try to reduce the OOC chatter in the gameplay thread during combat? Gives me fewer posts to wade through while trying to track what's going on with the bad guys. :-)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Automatic Failures and Successes: A natural 1 (the d20 comes up 1) on a saving throw is always a failure, and the spell may cause damage to exposed items (see Items Surviving after a Saving Throw, below). A natural 20 (the d20 comes up 20) is always a success.

This is what the prd has to say about it. It's page 198 in the core book I think. I may be a little off on the page number. Anyways, yes, I thought that saves worked like skill checks, ie no auto save or auto fail. This was because I roll like crap and my GM rolls amazing so the auto fail/succeed rule was screwing over the PCs on a regular basis. So we changed it. After a few years of this I forgot the rule was ever different.

Now, this is a rules light game so RAW really doesn't matter much. It's a guideline. So if you have strong feelings about this I won't really argue either way. The dice roller hates everyone equally. ;P


I'm fine with doing it the RAW way; that's part of why I post bad guys' saves, so people can roll them during their attack/hit/miss narrative without having to wait for me.

Thanks for clearing that up! I feel silly I forgot it.


Bow to the random dice god.


Oh! And w/r/t the mind-affecting immunities, these are custom-built monsters with a host of add-ons, so you can't trust the Bestiaries for all your metagaming needs. Fluff-wise, I justified the add-ons this way; they are Khoda's chosen, and he grants them extra powers and abilities.


i was mostly being surprised that elementals are not .. as per elemental traits .. immune to mind affecting effects.


I'm adding up damage right now, will be posting for Khoda's Khommandos shortly.


khoda's khommandos .. sounds like a war sitcom from the 80s

Shadow Lodge

Oh, oh, will they shout the name of their organization/boss as they fly in?

COBRAAAAAAA!


KHODAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Shadow Lodge

*snickers*

It even has the same amount of syllables!


Male Drow (noble) 14 Ranger

At least it's not KHOOOODA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA


LOL
