Me too, just want to give everyone time to finish up there character, that and I have some last minute prep to do before we start. Hopefully if everything goes right I will post the game thread tomorrow


Frozen Stream Human Monk/12

Thanks again. Looking forward to this. Believe it or not, in 10 years of gaming, this will be my first run through of Maure Castle.

Shadow Lodge

Male Human Ranger 3 || HP 32/32 || AC 16, T 13, FF 13, CMD 17 || F +5, R +6, W +1 || Per. +6, Init +5

I haven't heard of the castle before and I am happy to go thru it.

Its one of the better dungeon crawls out there written by Robert J Kuntz one of the early D&D gamer/designer and originally set in Greyhawk. The version you are going to be going thru is the 3.5 dungeon magazine version that was pretty awesome of which a total of 4 module have actually been written including the one you guys will will going thru. depending on how things go the other three will be run down the road as part of this pbp.

nice that sounds awesome. I really liked greyhawk from what I was able to get into it. My Favorite though came around with the Forgotten Realms. I started out at AD&D so I am not as old school as some.


M Human Monk/12

Greyhawk...ahhh my long and almost forgotten mistress!


female human Cleric(of Shelyn) 17/Mythic 10 hierophant

I actually only have played in greyhawk once or twice my table was for the longest time Forgotten Realms, and I mostly have played 2nd edition


female human Cleric(of Shelyn) 17/Mythic 10 hierophant

posted my traits and background in profile, and emailed you my character

Cheliax

Male Human 666th Lvl Evil DM

Everything look good Zaldane your approved.


Aelaeron is ready to crawl through some dungeon goodness (or evilness as the case may be.)

Lord Thas, I paid the crafting costs for my alchemical items since I can take 10 and beat the DC on all of them (using the crafter's fortune spell when necessary.) I hope that's ok. I tried not to go too overboard with it. Let me know if that's ok.

Thanks again for running this adventure!

Cheliax

Male Human 666th Lvl Evil DM

yeah thats fine Aelaeron if you can beat it with what you have for the points thats just fine

Cheliax

Male Human 666th Lvl Evil DM

The party is as follows:
Aelaeron Beast-Caller (Male elf Wizard 12 NG)
Lady Zaldane (Female Human Cleric of Shelyn 12 NG)

You guys are all approved and ready to go.

Waiting to see a post from Nexumis, as he hasn't posted since for two days not sure if he is still going to play.

Two other have shown interest so I will give them till tonight to finish up. Will drop the first post for the game before I go to sleep tonight


Checking in and looking forward to crawling the dungeon! :)


F Half-Elf Were-Tigress

Yeah I got in! Nice to meet everyone but it's time for me to head to work so I will be back tonight.


Reporting for duty.

gameplay thread posted


F Half-Elf Were-Tigress

I am curious what the venture captain has asked of us. Why did he send us to the castle? (Me, I'll look for arcana, but it's always good to know the mission)

Please note other players, I have not revealed myself yet as a were-tigress. Probably will soon but figured that revelation would be interesting RP.

Cheliax

From the campaign info tab

"You have been hired by the Pathfinder Society's Venture Captain Kreighton Shaine, to delve into Maure Castle. Shaine came across some revised histories of Cheliax that got through the Order of Rack's recent revision of the official history of the great Cheliax Empire. In the tome it mentions that the House Maure, a once proud and noble house of Cheliax. The tome seems to infer that the Maure Castle is currently uninhabited and that the family mysteriously disappeared over the last century or so. Very little else is mentioned about the family except for it rumored alliances with demons, devils and all sorts of otherworldly evils. Shaine further tells you a young up and coming member of the society had recently stumbled upon a communication from group loosely associated with the Hellknight's Order of the Gate called the Seeker's reports to the Order of the Gate that the Seeker's have successfully entered the ruins. Unfortunately the missive is quite old but the Society is concerned what the Seekers have already found and may find and further what the Hellknight's might do with anything found in Maure Castle to further their own nefarious plots.

The trek to Maure Castle leads you deep into the wilds of the rebellious western reaches of the Cheliax into a mountainous region many leagues from Devil's Perch in a little explored portion of the that range of mountains."


Will there be markers placed on the map to represent our location?

By the looks of it, will you be adding to the map as we explore or can we assume this is a dead end?


F Half-Elf Were-Tigress

Doh! Should of checked campaign info. Sorry.


female human Cleric(of Shelyn) 17/Mythic 10 hierophant

Any towns nearby?


female human Cleric(of Shelyn) 17/Mythic 10 hierophant

how do you do the formatting, tried the commands they just dont' work
for me? or I'm not doing them right ?


Are you using the formatting from the button under the text box? That tells you everything you need to do. Just watch out for typos. They can mess up your post.

Also, you need to use the square brackets.

[] So dice expression is (Dice)1d20+10(/Dice)

But substitute [ for ( and ] for ). Hope that helps.


female human Cleric(of Shelyn) 17/Mythic 10 hierophant

thank you


female human Cleric(of Shelyn) 17/Mythic 10 hierophant

1d20 + 10 ⇒ (18) + 10 = 28


female human Cleric(of Shelyn) 17/Mythic 10 hierophant

Ha ha i think I got it


female human Cleric(of Shelyn) 17/Mythic 10 hierophant

Sorry about that I'm new so i'll be asking a lot of questions about formatting and what not

Cheliax

Male Human 666th Lvl Evil DM

yes as we need them I will be placing marks no these aren't dead ends. just where you are. As you explore more the map will get bigger.\

The nearest town is several days ride and is full of hostile winged humans that would likely kill you rather than help you


female human Cleric(of Shelyn) 17/Mythic 10 hierophant

Okay was just wondering if we needed to resupply, to see how far it would take to travel there

Cheliax

Male Human 666th Lvl Evil DM

When we come to that bridge we will cross it


Hey Lord Thas, I made a few last tweaks on my skill points (moved around a few from other skills) and put them into Linguistics so I can speak the languages of the creatures I summon. I hope that's ok. This is my final revision.


Zaldane, you can edit/delete your posts as well as long as it's been less than an hour since you posted them I think. Keeps the gameplay thread a little tidier. It usually helps to hit preview on your posts before you submit.


female human Cleric(of Shelyn) 17/Mythic 10 hierophant

thanks for the advice, I'm trying to get a hang of this so I can do more gaming in a week than just my regular Sunday session


female human Cleric(of Shelyn) 17/Mythic 10 hierophant

testing the url format
Bless?


female human Cleric(of Shelyn) 17/Mythic 10 hierophant

Ha ha it worked now to duplicate it


F Half-Elf Were-Tigress

Would like to note that on my phone I can't type brackets for formatting or rolls, but I only use my phone on weekends, so its not all the time or anything.

Cheliax

Male Human 666th Lvl Evil DM

no worries

Shadow Lodge

Male Human Ranger 3 || HP 32/32 || AC 16, T 13, FF 13, CMD 17 || F +5, R +6, W +1 || Per. +6, Init +5

Lord, Do I need to roll a Perception check for every 30ft there or can I just roll one for the rest of the tunnel on where we are at.

Cheliax

Male Human 666th Lvl Evil DM

one is fine for now, when we get into the dungeon proper it will need to be rolled anytime you want to search again


Male Elf Wizard- 12

Well you can but I am going to have to work you into the game since you never responded after thursday. So just chill and I will bring you in fairly soon


Frozen Stream Human Monk/12

Aelaeron...we can hear Luca right? If not I'll revise my last gameplay post.


Yeah, the bold and italic text is him broadcasting his thoughts via telepathy. If it gets annoying from a play standpoint, let me know and I'll rein it in.

No no, no worries. I just wanted to make sure that Pendin would have heard him to be able to make his comment.


F Half-Elf Were-Tigress

Darn, but wait I thought the walls weren't magic? hmmm. I actually took stone shape too, then I replaced it.

Cheliax

Male Human 666th Lvl Evil DM

The walls themselves aren't but the ward protect the walls to either side so passwall or its like won't work here, good idea though. to tell you the truth this one of the more frustating parts of this module just getting into the dungeon proper but its worth the frustation

You should consider making him an Alias to maximize RP and minimize confusion.


F Half-Elf Were-Tigress

Sudden realization occurs from rereading, the wards only protect 5ft out from the door?
