"As I promised, my friends, Aroden has set us free! Glory be unto god!"

(We're down a person at work, which has my schedule pretty busy this week, so I probably won't get Caspan fully statted up until tomorrow morning (EST), but looking forward to gaming with you all.)


Female Human Summoner/3rd

Jacinthe enters the room, scanning the faces and eyes of the occupants. It can't be execution or the rack...they'd have blindfolded us the whole way, she speculates. She stays silent at the crazy follower of Aroden's proclamation, but wonders to herself if there is something to it.

I statted up Jacinthe's eidolon as well. Looking forward to working with you inglorious bastards.


Female Merfolk Oracle of Flame/L9

Here's the eidolon. (Not that he is present in-game yet.) Good luck with the extra coverage, Mott!

I'll put more details on what exactly keeps your arcane powers or divine powers in check but just now assume that they don't work no matter how hard you try.


Female Human Summoner/3rd

This?


M Human Cleric 3 of Asmodeus

I will have skills done tonight, they were lost in the internet somewhere should posting.

Glad to be aboard!

pretty much


Male Ifrit Rogue Sniper 3

Dropping the nickname... last change I promise!


Male Human Bard 3

OK, I think Caspan Saal is just about done. I'm still missing one feat, but wondering before I pick if we're likely to play some at fourth level. That'll probably determine whether I pick something that'll be part of a chain or just go with something a little more immediate.

Lantern Lodge

Male Human (I think) Student 3/Bum 1

You probably will make it to 4th...if you don't croak.


Female Human Summoner/3rd

Just wanted to reassure that I'll keep the Alliance-Empire verbal sparring to a reasonable level. :) A dose of intrateam conflict can be fun, though. (makes me think of drama-filled comics like The X-Men) Makes for good tension when one former enemy has to back up/rescue another, too.

Anyone else picturing the warden from the TV show "Alcatraz"?


Female Human Summoner/3rd

Never saw it! I was picturing some sort of flamboyant pimp, or maybe the Prince from The Princess Bride.

Caspan's nuts--who's Faceman and who pities da fool and has to be drugged to be put on dragonback? :D


1 person marked this as a favorite.
M Human Cleric 3 of Asmodeus

I think a little back and forth is fine. Monsanto isn't such a zealot that he can't see the value in working with the 'other side.' Right now we're all just on edge because we're in a hostile place with strangers that may want to take our candy.

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16, RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16 , Marathon Voter 2013, Marathon Voter 2014, Star Voter 2015

Oh, yes, Caspan's quite nuts.

The warden on "Alcatraz" was a well-done character, IMO. He came off as this nice paternal figure but then was revealed to have this somewhat sadistic, very Machiavellian streak. Very creepy.


Male Ifrit Rogue Sniper 3

Zachman, I can't help but laugh and facepalm at the "Great Gatsby" thing... That was a good book/movie btw good choice in NPC. It really helped give him a face for me too lol.

Lantern Lodge

Male Human (I think) Student 3/Bum 1

Yeah, my personal brand of "creativity"(if you can call it that). Is drawing from other sources then mashing it all together until it somewhat works. Hope your all ok with that.


Male Ifrit Rogue Sniper 3

I liked it, well done.


Female Human Summoner/3rd

Well, that ain't an eidolon rune on his forehead. ;)


Female Human Summoner/3rd

Hey Zachman, will Jacinthe be allowed to requisition a second set of equipment for her eidolon? Let me know what you think is fair.

Lantern Lodge

Male Human (I think) Student 3/Bum 1

What kind of eidolon do you have.


Female Merfolk Oracle of Flame/L9

Here he is; a quadruped with arms, so he could wield a simple weapon (I'd choose a morningstar). His AC is already pretty good. If you'd like I can PM you a proposal of gear.


M Human Cleric 3 of Asmodeus

I never rolled for Monsanto's hp.

@Axolotl
you can upgrade 1 of your items to magic and give it to him.


M Human Cleric 3 of Asmodeus

Magic item discussion. Zachman Stay out!:
Bah! Choosing magical items is beyond difficult. Part of me wants to make him a combat badass by getting a mace +1 with spell storing, allowing him to drop 1 cause medium wounds into the thing for smacking enemies.

The other half of me thinks I should go the tactical route and get something like an immovable rod, which has oh so many uses.

Also, he didn't specify what the spending limit was for weapons. Even though Monsanto is not proficient, he's tempted to ask for a pistol, just for the prestige of it.


Male Human Bard 3

Magic item discussion:

Yeah, I'm having a similar difficulty. Especially without knowing what our mission will be.


Female Human Summoner/3rd

Thanks Zachman! I'll do so.

Magic Item Discussion:
I built up Jacinthe and Kiru as a 'flank buddy' experiment, so for them I'm gonna use my two (see above) items as magic weapons. I don't know what we're up against either, but few things are resistant to acid, so +1 Acid Bastard for Jacinthe and a +1 Menacing Morningstar (helps flanking buddies) for Kiru. I figure few things are resistant to acid, and I don't know if we're fighting good, evil, undead, flumphs...

Monsanto, I don't know if you're wanting to buff or do melee; tough choices! You could get a Greyflame weapon, or a Rod, but if if you get the Immovable Rod, though, you've 'lost' 3,000 gp unless you can convince Zachman to let you use the rest as a ring or something. You are also the one person who can step up to medium armor and be more of a tank, and get a masterwork weapon. Unsure if that would be as fun as making things go splat. :D

Caspan, Ignis, what did you decide on? We should loop Panzah in and consider this as part of a larger discussion, namely, how we operate as a team.


Male Human Bard 3

Magic item discussion:

I went with a wand of invisibility. I figure that gives us access to a second-level spell I can cast without problem (I believe) that can be useful for all of us.


M Human Cleric 3 of Asmodeus

Continued:
Caspan: Invis is actually a domain spell for me.

@Jacinthe: I kind of like flavor, so I don't mind the loss of 3k. I thought about getting Glamoured armor as well. None of the lesser meta rods really spoke to me.

I don't know if I'll be rushing in to fight. I might do more damage just channeling energy at the enemies.


Male Human Bard 3

You know...:

Blindness/deafness, it is, then.

Lantern Lodge

Male Human (I think) Student 3/Bum 1

Oh Noes! A conspiracy brews against me! Lolz


Female Human Summoner/3rd

What did you expect? We're eeevil! :D

Cont'd:

Agreed, Monsanto, this is a flavorful group. It looks like Panzah and Jacinthe (and Kiru) will be the front line melee-ers (odd, since we're all limited in armor choices, but hey, flavor), Ignis in the middle somewhere letting arrows fly, and you and Caspan slinging spells. Funky.

Maybe Zachman would allow you to spend the extra 3k on a Reach Rod; you'd have that left and could play Band-Aid at a distance with your healing spells. That being said, I picked up healing potions.

Caspan--Blindness/Deafness is such an evil spell. Like Glitterdust, but permanent! Fitting.

I feel my character grow more True Neutral by the hour...


Male Ifrit Rogue Sniper 3

I definitely made my Ignis as a pew pew kind of guy so i went straight damage when I was picking his stuff.

Although Zachman...:
Could we also chose some non combat gear? {for me it would be something like thieves tools} that would be helpful, but it's totally up to you.


Sorry, I was away for the weekend....


Male Ifrit Rogue Sniper 3

That has nothing to do with my out of character personality, I respect women lol.


Female Human Summoner/3rd

No offense taken. I'll reserve my reaction in case you just did a flip only to bonk into a closed portal. :D


Male Ifrit Rogue Sniper 3

hah.

Lantern Lodge

Male Human (I think) Student 3/Bum 1

@Panzah
No problem

@ Cor
Sorry only basic equipment needed. The guards are nervous enough with giving you weapons and armor.


makes seance. Thanks.


M Human Cleric 3 of Asmodeus

Does basic equipment include holy symbols?

Lantern Lodge

Male Human (I think) Student 3/Bum 1

er...you need it to cast your spells don't you... I guess you get that back.


Female Human Summoner/3rd

Everyone else is an eschew materials type person, so we're otherwise good. I mean, eeevil. (or neutral)


Male Ifrit Rogue Sniper 3

Muwahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!..... *cough*


Female Human Summoner/3rd

Wow, Breakout Kings is good stuff--watched it while doing cardio and felt PAHMPED.


Male Human Bard 3

Curious, is Monsanto your name or a title? I wasn't sure...


Female Human Summoner/3rd

Hey Zachman, is it still the middle of the night, or did the equipment gathering and portal stuff take us until dawn? I guess we'll know this and other burning questions (what the outside looks like, etc) soon enough.

Sorry didn't see this until I typed it up in the gameplay thread. But yes it is still the middle of the night.


Female Human Summoner/3rd

Hey, Zachman, PCGen messed up my Eidolon HP and evolutions (I got 4 points instead of 5 as it wasn't counting free evolutions as free---weird); I'm changing them accordingly and swapping Pounce for Trip to get to 5 points, and HP will go up to 15 + Con. Lemme know if there are any issues with that!
