When the will defies fear, when duty throws the gauntlet down to fate, when honor scorns to compromise with death - that is heroism.

Are the grimlocks wearing armor?


Nope, no armor.


Regarding the battle with the wererats, the battle as presented in the module is beyond my ability to depict on a map. The room is about 15' x 15' and 30' high, and the opponents are amongst the ropes and support beams about 20' up. Do you guys think we can handle this in a narrative fashion vs tactical map?

Any suggestions?

Narrative is okay but right now I'm not sure where I am... hard without a starting point.


After you landed and rejoined the others I assumed you followed Lummel's lead:

Quote:
Lummel leads the way to the upper floor.
Quote:
Lummel glances to the others, making sure everybody is ready and in position, then, with a kick it slams the door open, ready to fight.

The attack was the surprise round for all those who had readied actions- Lummel kicking the door open, Ziz and Alviss charging in, the wererats shooting, etc. You can be wherever "ready and in position" would mean to you, either beside Lummel as he kicks the door open or somewhere else.


I'm open to suggestion. Dwarves aren't known for their climbing skills. And I don't think my MW crossbow bolts are going to do much damage to wererats.

Anyone??????

Can Ziz cast spiderclimb on a Dwarf Paladin?

Target: creature touched

Ziz has cast 3 of his 5 daily 2nd level spells... so yes, he can :D

If that's the plan you want to go with, just make the request IC and I'll have Ziz take you up on it. If Ziz is still following the game and wants to pop in with his own contributions that is fine too.

hey hey,
i am following gameplay and trying to get caught up. i should be back to my posing daily this week, so i'll post in gameplay tonight. thanks for letting me stick around.


Ziz, glad to see you check in again!

Fact is, I haven't been doing my part to keep the game going either. I know not everyone can post daily, so my original plan was to have 2 or 3 day combat rounds. Raspin hasn't checked in on the Grimlock combat and it took some people more than 2 days to get a post up on the wererat battle.

Is everyone fine with me moving the fights ahead if there are no responses after 3 days? I don't want the party to feel that I'm railroading things, but I've seen quite a few PbPs die as people lost interest over multi-day delays...


Male Elf wizard 5(div and ench restricted) conjuration spec

I posted unless or at least I thought I did. I will check.


Male Elf wizard 5(div and ench restricted) conjuration spec

You said the grimlock lost his axe. I figured it was still round 2. Is it round 3 now?


Yes it is. Your round 2 action was to cast grease, disarming the Grimlock. Its round 2 action was to swing at you with the improvised greatclub. I need you to declare your action for the third round.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

My experience is that lots of prompts and initiative reminders is a very good thing in pbp, the kind of stuff that might feel like badgering at the table is a-okay to keep a pbp moving.


Was Alviss clambering up to the rafters his full turn? WR3 (before him in initiative) hadn't done anything yet.

He's going to draw his short sword and attack when appropriate.


Sheathing a weapon is a move action, along with the climbing. If you'd rather drop the axe we can make an attack roll...

Yes, I'll go with a drop, scramble up like a dwarven spider and draw the short sword.

just checking in. The board is not updating campaign tabs like it should so if someone is not posting you might need to send them a PM.


Work got significantly busier two weeks ago and both my wife and son have had some health issues... long story short I've been a terrible GM recently.

I'll try to have gameplay posts up tonight, and keep them coming every two days or so during combat. Sorry for the lapse!


So... rather than apologize again I figured I'd just update the gameplay thread :P

I ran into some severe writer's block every time I sat down to write an update, I guess I just had a hard time getting back into the narrative of the two battles. Anyhow, ready to go now and I should be able to keep up regular posts and close out each combat round as soon as everyone posts their actions.

Feel free to move me to the tower combat if that makes things easier, whatever story vehicle works for me. I've always tried to avoid split groups as a GM, it just makes things complicated.


It can be rough at RL tables, but enabling split parties is one of the few places where PbP is better suited to gaming than RL. I'd planned to have a bit more happen in Southspur but I'm leaning toward having you guys meet up as soon as possible so I'll probably just do a quick scene transition after the combat is over, to move you and Raspin to the tower based on news from the guards (if they survive).


I'm lost, whose turn is it in the tower combat?


Sorry, I thought I'd cleared that up...

PbP combat was taking too long while we were waiting for everyone to post in initiative order. I switched it to having everyone declare their actions for the round, along with their intentions in case the action they intended is rendered irrelevant by something that happened earlier in the initiative order. Once I have everyone's action for the round I'll resolve everything in initiative order and post the results. As soon as I post the results for the round you can post your actions for the next round.

I've seen it work in other PbPs and it should speed things up quite a bit.


female Half-Elf Ranger 5 (Hit Points 49 Current 54; AC 18; Initiative +3; Perception +14)

I'm a bit mixed up, have I been yet in this round?


Hopefully I can clear things up...

The most recent round in the tower occurred in this post.

I take a few steps into the room and surge into the air, landing among the rafters with the silver sword in hand, ready to strike.

fly 1d20 + 17 ⇒ (11) + 17 = 28
and the attack roll I posted for you in the spoiler since you'd only listed a move action but had made it clear that you intended to attack:
loimprevisto wrote:
Elesandira attacks a wererat: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (5) + 10 = 15 = miss.

I posted everything that had happened during that round in that post, with the dice rolls at the top in a spoiler and the narrative below. Once this 'combat round report' hits the gameplay thread you can post your next action. After I get inputs from everyone I will resolve the actions in initiative order and post the results for the round, whereupon everyone can post their actions again and we'll wrap up that round- etc.

Right now Alviss and Lummel have listed their intended action for this round, and I'll post the results of the combat round as soon as I have yours. A system like this will prevent us from having to worry about who's turn it is to post their action and should speed up combat rounds so that individual encounters won't each take a month to work through...


female Half-Elf Ranger 5 (Hit Points 49 Current 54; AC 18; Initiative +3; Perception +14)

cheers, i'll get on it.


Bueller? Bueller?

Just checking in. I don't show any posts in well over a week.


My life has become rather busy lately, I'm traveling for the next week for my son's surgery. I'm not sure if this will leave me with more time for posting or less, but it's one of the reasons why I've been a bit slow to post lately...

You all are great players and I feel like I'm doing you a bit of a disservice as a GM with only being able to post in fits and starts. I'd like to know if anyone would rather I try to recruit a new GM and pass my notes over to them, or if you guys are satisfied with the game moving forward in fits and starts as I can make time for updates.


I have a handful of games going on so I don't mind the slow motion.


female Half-Elf Ranger 5 (Hit Points 49 Current 54; AC 18; Initiative +3; Perception +14)

I don't mind slowing down either, I like your GMing and the adventure and characters are cool. It's much more work for you than for us though, so it's up to you.


I'm fine with the pace.

Hope the surgery goes well.


Guys, on tuesday I'll be fleeing from the hot damp city for cooler weather on the mountains, the drawback would be a scarcely available internet connection. Don't worry I'll be back!


The surgery went smoothly and he's recovering well.

Thanks for the patience. We'll keep plugging along then :)


female Half-Elf Ranger 5 (Hit Points 49 Current 54; AC 18; Initiative +3; Perception +14)

Glad it went well.


Excellent!


Male Elf wizard 5(div and ench restricted) conjuration spec

I thought the campaign had died. I was just about to undot it. It does not even show that anyone posted here or in the gameplay thread. As for the pacing, I don't mind a slower game.


Ugh.

The bugs with the update notifications are my only real problem with the Paizo forums. I'll PM Jon if he doesn't check in soon, in case he's running into the same problem.

I find that your campaign tab can sometimes be more accurate than the main forums interface, but not always...


Elf Rogue 5 / HP 36 of 36, AC 18, Fort. 3, Ref. 9, Will 2

I'm here, slow pace is ok, glad to hear the surgery went well, hope the recovery goes equally smooth


female Half-Elf Ranger 5 (Hit Points 49 Current 54; AC 18; Initiative +3; Perception +14)

So, um... [whistles]


Still checking in a couple times a week. Hope your son's recovery is going well.


So, despite my best intentions it's become painfully obvious that I'm not going to be able to continue this story. I see three options:

Mark the campaign as inactive and move on
Pass on my reference material and let one of you guys take over as GM
Recruit a new GM with a recruitment thread

Please let me know what you prefer.


I'm marking the campaign as inactive.

Feel free to PM me if you decide they'd like to take over as GM instead, or if you just want to chat about the adventure and what was planned...
