Here's the discussion thread for the 2nd party I'm running through the Jade Regent Adventure Path.


(RETIRED) Male Human Druid HP: 18/18 | AC: 19/13/16 CMD: 12 | F: +4 R: +3 W: +7 | Initiative: +3

Hey guys, first of all thank you very much to GM-Jadecat for the invite to play. I’m really looking forward to it and think we have an interesting cast of characters in our group.

I’m going to spend a little time later on reading through everyone’s backstory to get a handle on them and what they bring but my first instinct is to switch things up with Marten a little.

I was intending on a high strength melee, wildshaping build that takes advantage of multiple natural weapons with Power Attack or one big hit with feats like Vital Strike. Maybe some teamwork feats with my animal companion.

However looking at the balance of the party, I think Gryf and Friday have that sewn up. I love the fact we have an arcanist and a sorcerer, that’s a lot of power right there.

So I think Marten is a little marginalised and might need a tweaking to make things work, if GM is willing. It looks as if we are desperately needing a source of healing in his group with only Marten able to cast cure spells right off the bat. I am wondering whether to become a more focussed Druid caster, or a Shaman, or an Oracle or possibly a Witch.

I don’t want to lose the nature and spiritual focus Marten has because it’s a good foil for Gryf but having 9 levels of casting and some reliable access to healing seems like a more useful thing than an extra melee character.

Anyone got any thoughts?

Actually, Haru's a bard. Here's her stats and backstory: her player hasn't updated her profile to match it yet.


(RETIRED) Male Human Druid HP: 18/18 | AC: 19/13/16 CMD: 12 | F: +4 R: +3 W: +7 | Initiative: +3

Ah well that's even better in a way, our melee guys will really benefit from those buffs as well as she can with her bow. It also opens up a little more access to healing but I'm still wondering whether the extra melee strength of Marten + animal companion is going to be better than a full dedicated divine caster


Male Bloodrager (primalist) 2 | hp 22 | AC 16, touch 11, flat-footed 15 | Perc+7 | Fort+5, Ref+1, Will+2 | CMD+16| HP2 Bloodrager

Hello everyone, it's a pleasure to get picked with you all and thank you Jakecat for picking me! Really looking forward to this now, I'll be familiarising myself with each character when i finish work.

We seem to have good balance with arcanist and bard, 3 melee(+AC) but that might be pushing it? (Also the fact we have little healing/support) to echo what Marten as saying.

I like the idea of Gryf and Marten working together in melee honing our skills as twins to destroy things. But if you want and Jadecat lets maybe we could use you as a full divine caster.

At the end of the day we can always go as is and make it work. :P

Hello everyone! To echo the rivers can't wait to start playing with you guys.

Hmm, lets see:

Gryf - Caravan Guard (Sandru)
Marten - Friend of the Family (Koya
Haru - Student Survivalist (Shalelu)
Valeria- Crush (Ameiko)
Friday - Crush (Ameiko)

Hmm two crushes on Ameiko, this will be interesting.

From what I understand, other potential love interests show up later on.

Haru remains in human form all the time, at least for now.

And Valeria doesn't actually have fur - her tail's just black skin, just long enough to reach the ground if she relaxes it and with a spade-shaped head on the end that almost seems disproportionately broad for how slim the tail is (about the size of her palm, really).

@Val: Ah, my bad.

@Haru: I said foxy lady, not fox lady :3


Male Bloodrager (primalist) 2 | hp 22 | AC 16, touch 11, flat-footed 15 | Perc+7 | Fort+5, Ref+1, Will+2 | CMD+16| HP2 Bloodrager

The two Crush traits should be interesting to see that evolve :P And we have a Tiefling and a Kitsune I'm sure we'll all get along nicely.


Marten, if you'd like to switch to a different healing class, I'll allow it--in fact, judging from your backstory, the Shaman class would be a pretty good fit, I think.


Anyway, now that everyone's checked in, I'll work on getting us started in the morning.


Female Kitsune Bard 4 | HP 27/27 | AC 16 T 13 FF 13 | Ft +3 Rf +7 Wi +3 | Init +3 | Perc +6 | Perform 14/14 | Spells 4/4 2/2 | DL 3/3 | Party Loot

Haru's profile is updated.


Male Bloodrager (primalist) 2 | hp 22 | AC 16, touch 11, flat-footed 15 | Perc+7 | Fort+5, Ref+1, Will+2 | CMD+16| HP2 Bloodrager

I'm just polishing up Gryfs profile to.

Before we start i thought it would be good to do a little introduction(I suppose it helps to know what time zone people are in to and when we expect posts)

My names Daniel I live in Wales, UK. Currently working from home for a Medical Distribution company so my chances to post are quite high. I'm new to DND/PF i played 3.5 for a year or two before moving on to Pathfinder about 2-3 years ago, always wanted to play never had a chance but then i found a table group and ever looked back.


(RETIRED) Male Human Druid HP: 18/18 | AC: 19/13/16 CMD: 12 | F: +4 R: +3 W: +7 | Initiative: +3

Yeah I am thinking of switching things up, not to become a healing class as such but certainly there seems no need for another melee front liner especially when summoning is always a good option.

It's likely I will become a more casting focussed Druid, probably with the Caves subdomain which will be reflected in my backstory.

I will concentrate on battlefield control, summoning and healing and should fill a little bit of a niche in the party that way.


Female Rakshasa-Spawn Tiefling Arcanist 4 | HP 15/15 | AC 13 T 12 FF 11 | Ft +1 Rf +3 Wi +3 | Init +6 | Perc +3 (+5 if Xel within arm's reach)

Well timezone-wise I'm in Queensland, Australia. If you want to work off the timestamp of this post; it is currently half-past ten at night as I type this (late night games of Warmachine - one of these days I may actually win some :P).

One thing I might do with Valeria in the morning is transfer her sheet over to one of Myth Weavers newer ones rather than the old legacy sheet currently linked. Reason being is that the Legacy sheets don't auto-update the various fields (the skills table is the big one, but AC, BAB, saves, etc are all broken on them at the moment). I could just write up her sheet the way the rest of you have, but I kinda prefer using those automated sheets because they're a lot easier to update for damage, gear, buffs or when levelling.


(RETIRED) Male Human Druid HP: 18/18 | AC: 19/13/16 CMD: 12 | F: +4 R: +3 W: +7 | Initiative: +3

I agree, Valeria. I make use of HeroLabs almost exclusively now when creating a character or outputting a statblock to my alias. It's expensive but I don't know how I did without it now.


Having some trouble with my Internet connection. I'll update when I can.


(RETIRED) Male Human Druid HP: 18/18 | AC: 19/13/16 CMD: 12 | F: +4 R: +3 W: +7 | Initiative: +3

No probs GM. I need to get Marten finished off anyway.

After agonizing over it much of the day I'm going to be a casting focussed druid with the Ashes subdomain. This gives me access to a few nice blasts whilst still maintaining battle field control and summoning and healing.

Just need to tweak my backstory to reflect the domain.

Looking forward to getting started :)


I'll be starting the gameplay thread late--the last thread I tried to start kinda got screwed up. I'm working on sorting it out now.


Alright, after some finagling, I've got the gameplay thread up here. My apologies for keeping you waiting!

I have to say, I have to follow two jade regent threads. One of my ALL time favorite players is in your party, here is looking at you, and he has shown to be a genius writer in just so many ways.
Good luck you all

(for the good luck, not the favorite player part because I don't think we've ever played in a game together heh)


(RETIRED) Male Human Druid HP: 18/18 | AC: 19/13/16 CMD: 12 | F: +4 R: +3 W: +7 | Initiative: +3

Gohei and I are in another game together that's been running over a year now. That's why I know he'll be a great addition to Table 1 and that I should keep an eye on that game :)


ACK! Lots of posts--I've been slackin'!

Just a note to those with familiars, animal companions, and other animals, Daud has the

Warded Against Nature:

Effect: Animals do not willingly approach within 30 feet of you, unless you or the animal's master succeeds at a DC 20 Handle Animal, Ride, or wild empathy check. Animal companions, familiars, and mounts granted by your class abilities are immune to this effect.
Drawback.


(RETIRED) Male Human Druid HP: 18/18 | AC: 19/13/16 CMD: 12 | F: +4 R: +3 W: +7 | Initiative: +3

Maybe it's better that I did pick a domain in the end!


Female Rakshasa-Spawn Tiefling Arcanist 4 | HP 15/15 | AC 13 T 12 FF 11 | Ft +1 Rf +3 Wi +3 | Init +6 | Perc +3 (+5 if Xel within arm's reach)

Well at least Familiars are immune to it.

Also, transferred Valeria onto MW's new sheets. Used the Spells Known bit for tracking how many spells she can have prepared (the sheet wasn't designed for arcanists, after all).


Sorry for the slacking on posts--I've been kinda busy this Valentine's Day weekend.

Time to get things rolling!

I am quite surprised
That it took you this long to
Figure it out, sir.

Also I really hate to bring it up *twitch*OCD*twitch* but is there anything that can be done about the links at the top of the discussion thread so that it's easier to switch between the gameplay and discussion threads?


I'll see if I can find out.

EDIT: Fixed it! :D

Everyone, would you kindly put your vital statistics under your character name? It'll make tracking important info a lot easier on me.

Okies, will do that when I get settled in at work in a bit.


Do you guys know this player, Scoundrel the Tiefling?

He's been looking for a Jade Regent campaign to join and has approached me, hoping to join. He's proposing a human ninja who is the younger brother of Ameiko Kaijitsu. Have any of you gamed with him before? Would any of you be averse to him joining us?

Never played a game with em, so it's up to the others.

Never played a game with him that I know of. I wouldn't mind; would he be retconned to have come with us to start with, or meet us somewhere?


Female Rakshasa-Spawn Tiefling Arcanist 4 | HP 15/15 | AC 13 T 12 FF 11 | Ft +1 Rf +3 Wi +3 | Init +6 | Perc +3 (+5 if Xel within arm's reach)

I'm cool with it. Like the others, I haven't played with him before (then again; this is only my second game on the Paizo boards so the list of people I haven't played with here is pretty damn long :P).


Male Tiefling Rogue/1 | AC 18 T 15 FF 14 | HP 9 | F +1 R +6 W +1 | Init+4 | Per+5 |

I was also considering making my PC an elf but I like the actual blood connection to Ameiko...I only like elf for the Silent Hunter trait that gets rid of the -5 penalty for moving faster than half your movement rate when trying to use Stealth...OR maybe a half-drow sounds interesting to me as well and I WILL be cock blocking those who are unworthy of my "sister" btw. Good luck with the competition and me in the way. :-) hahahahhahah


Male Tiefling Rogue/1 | AC 18 T 15 FF 14 | HP 9 | F +1 R +6 W +1 | Init+4 | Per+5 |

so uh can I get playing soon or what?
