Yes. I will report what Kin sees in Alvis and along the way.


Do you like having the combat map or would you prefer to just freeform it?


hp 20/20 AC 17, 17, 15, fort +4 refl +6, will +7, bab 1, melee 4, ranged 3, cmb 3 cmd 15, init +6, perc +10 M oni-spawn tiefling monk (of the 4 winds)/2; inquisitor(preacher)/2

I can go either way - I like the map but I can work without it too, whatever you prefer - you're the GM.


Male Human Wizard 1

I can go either way, but I did like the map from the first encounter. Depends how much work it is, I guess. Even without a map the grid coords were good.


Male Human Barbarian 1 (favoured)

Whichever.


Male Human Barbarian 1 (favoured)

The dice hate me enlarged apparently lol


Male Human Wizard 1

Much sympathy Samant - we've all been there.


hp 20/20 AC 17, 17, 15, fort +4 refl +6, will +7, bab 1, melee 4, ranged 3, cmb 3 cmd 15, init +6, perc +10 M oni-spawn tiefling monk (of the 4 winds)/2; inquisitor(preacher)/2

gah... wish samant had gotten that crit threat - his damage would have probably dropped the bandit!


Male Human Wizard 1

sorry guys, that was a lot of charges out of the wand


hp 20/20 AC 17, 17, 15, fort +4 refl +6, will +7, bab 1, melee 4, ranged 3, cmb 3 cmd 15, init +6, perc +10 M oni-spawn tiefling monk (of the 4 winds)/2; inquisitor(preacher)/2

anyone have any handle animal skill (trained only) - I don't have it, but having a horse might be a handy thing.


Male Human Wizard 1

Are we out of combat time?


Yes, Hob, out of combat time.


Male Human Barbarian 1 (favoured)

I do at a +6 Masao


Male Human Barbarian 1 (favoured)

Well thank god horses are Docile


Male Human Wizard 1

Sorry guys - not trying to be a prat... Hob doesn't like horses AT ALL.
Someone distract him and you should be fine


hp 20/20 AC 17, 17, 15, fort +4 refl +6, will +7, bab 1, melee 4, ranged 3, cmb 3 cmd 15, init +6, perc +10 M oni-spawn tiefling monk (of the 4 winds)/2; inquisitor(preacher)/2

lol

btw, Hob... I have this image in my head of Kin trying to cdg the bandit.... hilarious! love it. remind me not to get on his bad side and drop unconscious! hehe


Male Human Wizard 1

Masao: One day I'll get polymorph and then Kin will finally get the respect a great warrior deserves! ;)

So -

Hob is carrying the heavy crossbow, the whittled club, the wand of magic missiles, the crossbow bolt and the red liquid?

Masao is carrying the spellbook?

Given the way Hob burned through three charges on the wand I'm not sure he deserves to keep it, if I'm being honest.

Samant: Should I get Hob to keep Enlarge Person? You've been the target, so is it worth it? Could switch it out for magic weapon or gravity bow...


Male Human Barbarian 1 (favoured)

Whatever you want.

Having a large guy standing in front of the casting crew is never a bad idea


Male Human Wizard 1

yeah - I think the only problem was the dice seemed to hate you this fight. 3d6+9(?) damage while raging is pretty attractive if we need to get through DR, too.


So, at this point in our adventure, a post away from 500, I'd like to ask a few question to see how we're doing. I'm just looking for your honest feedback so that I can run this game in the best way possible.

Most importantly, are you enjoying this campaign?
How is the pacing? Is the plot moving too quickly or slowly?
Do you like the direction the game is headed? Would you like to see more exploration, intrigue, social scenarios, or combat?
Do you feel that your character is getting a chance to do what he is good at?
Are there any things about the game or my GM style that you dislike or would change?
Is combat appropriately paced? Does it contribute to the game?

And for fun, which character has the best haircut?

Please feel free to add any other questions or comments here or any time you see fit. Thanks for playing with me. I've had a great time so far.


hp 20/20 AC 17, 17, 15, fort +4 refl +6, will +7, bab 1, melee 4, ranged 3, cmb 3 cmd 15, init +6, perc +10 M oni-spawn tiefling monk (of the 4 winds)/2; inquisitor(preacher)/2

Jacob:

Most importantly, are you enjoying this campaign?
So far, yup, I'm enjoying myself.

How is the pacing? Is the plot moving too quickly or slowly?
Plot? THere's a plot? lol j/k... it's moving ahead quite fine actually. I would like to see the pace pick up a little, but that has more to do with player posts than your own, and I understand that people have lives and jobs and such, so I am trying to be patient. lol... I'm not known for my patience.

Do you like the direction the game is headed? Would you like to see more exploration, intrigue, social scenarios, or combat?
I think so far we've got plenty of intrigue, and I figure the exploration will come in time as we move through different parts of the scenarios. We haven't really had a lot of opportunity for 'exploration' yet. Combat has been fine, I like your maps, they are simple but they work to establish basic confrontation without being too restrictive.

Do you feel that your character is getting a chance to do what he is good at?
Of course not! What he's good at is something he won't be able to do well for a few levels at least. He's such a noob! lol. I figure he'll get his chances for spell combat and all that stuff in time.

Are there any things about the game or my GM style that you dislike or would change?
Nope so far everything has been fine. Like i said, pacing could pick up, but that's not your issue really, just timing of posts and all.

Is combat appropriately paced? Does it contribute to the game?
Wouldn't be much of a game without some combat now and again. Pacing of combat has been fine. Might want to think about having everyone post their actions then you put them in init order and make them work, yanno... rather than waiting for posts in init order, which can be harder depending on people's post schedules.

And for fun, which character has the best haircut?
Well, in reality (not the avatar), Masao has this whole R-K anime haircut thing going which is pretty awesome but no one can see it. So I guess I have to vote based on avatar. Gotta vote for Arwen then - like the whole flowing hair thing.


Oh, bugger it all. I forgot you XP for the bandits. It's 100 each. Did I forget anything else? And how close are we to leveling up, now?


hp 20/20 AC 17, 17, 15, fort +4 refl +6, will +7, bab 1, melee 4, ranged 3, cmb 3 cmd 15, init +6, perc +10 M oni-spawn tiefling monk (of the 4 winds)/2; inquisitor(preacher)/2

What's our experience track?

And I THINK that puts us at 900 xp ea iirc.


We're on fast experience. I would pull out my hair waiting for anything else on PbP.


hp 20/20 AC 17, 17, 15, fort +4 refl +6, will +7, bab 1, melee 4, ranged 3, cmb 3 cmd 15, init +6, perc +10 M oni-spawn tiefling monk (of the 4 winds)/2; inquisitor(preacher)/2

So we're getting close at least.. :)


Male Human Wizard 1

I am enjoying the game a lot, thanks :)
I think the pacing is good, though I also think I have gotten hung up on minutiae - not your fault.
I would like a chance in a level (or two) to have a few weeks off to try to build a sword... in my head at the moment the group are normal people fighting wrong and in over their heads. I could see them becoming a sort of robin-hood bandit group over time.
I like the pacings of the fights, especially when there is a map. I think we could probably go a little tougher on the fights - but I guess there is then the risk of TPK.
I'm new to PbP; while in tabletop I love working a plan or a heist, I am starting to see that in PbP that can just take too long.
Best haircut? I think Samant :)

Yay levelling :)


Male Human Cleric / Level 1

So far I am enjoying this quite a lot myself :) There has been enough everything so far expect exploration but will be fine so far. We are low level in and in game-terms : still noobs and going around our regions so will be fine.

I would like to pick up speed a bit more but that is us players and not the gm :) Just waiting to see what should I write or keep up. Trying as well get on the mind of Arwen with this "Love everyone" or might still change it more into something else in time. Trying to pick up my own posting speed here.

The haircut style eh... hm, would have to (myself) lol. I would say Hob due to that wild wizard style


Male Human Barbarian 1 (favoured)

Love it no complaints here, except the dice hating me on occasion.

Best haircut, Arwen with the regal grey sweep.


Male Human Cleric / Level 1

the current experience for us is at this moment 1070-> 230 more to reach lvl 2


Sorry, all, I’ll be away for the rest of this day. I wasn’t expecting to be out of the house for the whole day. I only have time to post this right quick. I’ll definitely be back on tonight, though. We’ll get all caught up, then.


hp 20/20 AC 17, 17, 15, fort +4 refl +6, will +7, bab 1, melee 4, ranged 3, cmb 3 cmd 15, init +6, perc +10 M oni-spawn tiefling monk (of the 4 winds)/2; inquisitor(preacher)/2

ok... it IS a holiday weekend after all... see you later tonight, thanks for checking in and letting us know!


Male Human Barbarian 1 (favoured)

woohoo


hp 20/20 AC 17, 17, 15, fort +4 refl +6, will +7, bab 1, melee 4, ranged 3, cmb 3 cmd 15, init +6, perc +10 M oni-spawn tiefling monk (of the 4 winds)/2; inquisitor(preacher)/2

wb Jacob, hope you had a great holiday weekend!

Just a heads up. Starting Weds I will be on vacation. For a few days at least, I will be driving about 10 hours a day and only able to post very late at night pst. So if you don't hear from me for long periods, that's why.

We will be staying at hotels with wifi, so I will check in as soon as I can after arrival each night.

This sort of schedule is likely to last about 13 days (we return on June 13th, so just giving a heads up -

Jacob, feel free to bot Masao in combat if I don't post quickly enough to keep things moving along.


Cool beans. Enjoy your trip!


hp 20/20 AC 17, 17, 15, fort +4 refl +6, will +7, bab 1, melee 4, ranged 3, cmb 3 cmd 15, init +6, perc +10 M oni-spawn tiefling monk (of the 4 winds)/2; inquisitor(preacher)/2

Oh I will, taking a drive up the coast to SEattle, then a cruise to Alaska. I WILL be checking in and posting daily - just not so often as I do now.


That sounds awesome. My grandparents took a cruise to and around Alaska a ways back and loved it.


hp 20/20 AC 17, 17, 15, fort +4 refl +6, will +7, bab 1, melee 4, ranged 3, cmb 3 cmd 15, init +6, perc +10 M oni-spawn tiefling monk (of the 4 winds)/2; inquisitor(preacher)/2

MMMmm.. I love cruising, but I've never been to Alaska before, so this should be lots of fun.


Male Human Wizard 1

Hope you have a good time :)


Male Human Barbarian 1 (favoured)

With the Chain shirt no AC change but my speed is increased to 40 ft


Oh, sorry Samant. Johan can only give you one item. =(


Male Human Barbarian 1 (favoured)

No worries I'll take the chain shirt


Male Human Wizard 1

Hey all,
I've been considering what to do for Hob's next level.

What I'm thinking:

Feat Wise, I'm hoping to take Eldritch Heritage, Craft Wondrous Items and Craft Arms and Armour in upcoming levels.

I know wizards are typically fireball chuckers or save-or-die casters, but I'd like to try to keep Hob away from that. I like having a wizard who goes into melee combat :)

While I want to try to stay Wizard as much as possible, I have been considering a dip to get some armour and weapon proficiences.

The three classes I was looking at were Barbarian, Magus and Alchemist.

I don't want to overlap with people to much, so at the moment I was thinking Alchemist; specifically Grenadier (for the Weapon proficiency) / Vivisectionist (no bombs).

It would be helpful if I could know roughly what you are looking to do with Masao, Samant and Arwen - if only so I can make sure I don't do it too!


Male Human Cleric / Level 1

hmm.. that sounds good as I see and that fits quite nicely your character. I am thinking to keep with cleric to offer healing for us and improve those dice rolls for the future. So far I have been quite fortunate to not waste the usages than once


Male Human Wizard 1

Hey guys,
I am going to be at a con. Starts friday night aus time (about 30 hours from now) and goes for three days.
I'm going to try to keep posting during that time, but I might be a bit more spotty.
Bot me if needed :)
Cheers


Sweeet. Which one, out of curiousity?


Male Human Wizard 1

phenomenon


Male Human Wizard 1

Hang on Arwen, I think GM_Jacob said it is too late.


Male Human Wizard 1

Hey guys
figured beta to talk meta here.

Hob does not want to wait *here*, as that sounds crazy if we are being sold out.

He's more likely to withdraw into the woods, or try to talk old friends around.

Kin can keep an eye on things "in disguise"

I'm pretty flexible on what else to do, happy to go with the group.

By the way, I really like that we *didn't* turn this into a "kill everything, move on" situation. There were some interesting moral questions here, and this feels like a much "better" outcome.


Hey, folks, I'm going to be only semi-available for the next week. I'll try really hard to get in at least one post a day, but I have to aks for patience on the days I can't. Thanks.
