The Shoals of Virtue (Inactive)

Game Master DreamAtelier

On the islands of Tian-Xia, political ambitions and a long forgotten dynasty will collide.

101 to 150 of 245 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | next > last >>

Male Nagaji Samurai(Ronin) 1

Kai smiles at Karval's reaction. "It's a specialty of my village." He passes the flask to Lang, "Don't drink too much, I don't know how long before I can get more."

He carefully glances at everyones' various weapons and smiles."A warrior is nothing without his a blade by his side. Do not confuse a cautious hand with being hot tempered.

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1

Lang takes a small swig and hands back the flask. He smacks his lips and smiles. "Thank you." The various reactions around the table cause him to chuckle mirthfully. "It seems we are all bound to serve Satrap Shi, and no mere grunts at that. I wonder if we are being formed into a new unit? I haven't heard of anything unusual happening on Eastwall lately, what about y'all?"

Male Half-Orc Barbarian

Toph touches his fingertips to his ear and shrugs, his shoulders rising and falling with subtle bemusement, as if to say he'd heard nothing.

*Watches and listen silently*

perception: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (16) + 7 = 23

Male Hobgoblin Abjurer 1

Karval shrugs. "I've heard nothing. I don't usually bother with matters that aren't my business."

Male Nagaji Samurai(Ronin) 1

"I've just arrived in town and haven't heard anything." Kai continues to drink his tea.

"Nope, heard nothing, Nya!"

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1

Ah well, maybe I'm just being paranoid. Anybody fancy a game of chess? He motions to the chess board sitting unused on a side table.

Proposed rules: 5 opposed Int checks, with a +1 bonus per rank in Sense Motive. Also, lol @ Araki

Male Nagaji Samurai(Ronin) 1

Chess sounds fun! Checks character sheet, hmm ranks in Sense motive-0...crap. Ok fine Int mod= 0... never mind looks like someone else will play

That's only a 5% disadvantage over me. I only have a +1

Male Hobgoblin Abjurer 1

A small smile appears on Karval, but he quickly dispels it. "Certainly, I will play a game."
The hobgoblin reaches and takes off his backpack, before moving to sit at the side table.
If Karval loses, it'll be pretty funny. XD
First check, against whoever wishes to play: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (6) + 4 = 10

Male Half-Orc Barbarian

Toph squeezes himself into a seat, turning the protestantly creaking wooden chair to better watch the board as he finishes off his soup.
This should be good.

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1

"Excellent." Lang takes his place across the board from Karval.

First check1d20 + 1 ⇒ (19) + 1 = 20

"Ah, a clever opening friend. But I know it. He slides his pieces into opposition with a wolfish grin on his face.

Male Hobgoblin Abjurer 1

Karval's eyes narrow. "Cute."
He reaches forward and makes his move. "I just thought I'd test you. It's clear you're no opponent to toy with, though."
Second check: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (13) + 4 = 17

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1

He thinks I'm actually good at this!

Lang only grunts in response as he makes his second move.
Second check 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (17) + 1 = 18

Male Hobgoblin Abjurer 1

Karval stares blankly at his lost knight. "Not...bad."
He is silent a moment, then he seems to recover himself. Eyes glinting, the hobgoblin advances a pawn. "You know your way around a square, Lang Xiao Bai. It's time to make some changes to the board, though."
Third Check: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (20) + 4 = 24

Male Half-Orc Barbarian

Toph leans back in his chair, which creaks with dismay. A couple of quick signs later, he leans back forward, clearly intrigued.

"Is he supposed to have so many of the pieces?"

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1

Uh oh.

"Most impressive..." he says in a James Earl Jones like voice.

Then clearly missing the set up, springs Karval's trap.

Third Move1d20 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 1 = 6

Male Hobgoblin Abjurer 1

Whatever Toph signed, it makes Karval place the next piece with enough force to rock the table.
Then the embarrassment is forgotten. The hobgoblin's eyes shine. "There we are..."
He moves in a flurry now, determined to press his advantage.
Fourth Check: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (20) + 4 = 24
HAHAHAHAHAA I just wasted two twenties in a row AND I AM HAPPY ABOUT IT!
Karval is grinning. "There we are. The side of White has rallied. The board is changing once more."

Male Half-Orc Barbarian

That made me literally lol.

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1

By Erastil's bountiful b*#!&$+s he's beating me back to bedlam!

Lang's right eye begins to twitch slightly and he swallows visibly.

Fourth Check 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (16) + 1 = 17

Male Hobgoblin Abjurer 1

Karval keeps moving, though he's slowed down a bit now. "You're a good player. But my ridiculous tutor at least knew how to play chess!" Karval lets out what passes for a laugh. It doesn't sound like it's heard very often.
Fifth Check: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (10) + 4 = 14
Nice rolls, by the way.

Male Nagaji Samurai(Ronin) 1

Kai watches the back and forth of the players curiously. Then after the first few moves turns back to his tea. "Who needs to be good with a toy when you are good with a blade."

Male Hobgoblin Abjurer 1

Karval looks up at Tong Kai, not losing his cheer. "The blade serves the intellect. The intellect serves this little toy."

Male Half-Orc Barbarian

Toph smiles, pulls a brass knife from his belt, and carves
"Who tells YOU where to sail?"
Into his bowl, and tosses it to the Nagaji. When the ronin looks up, Toph mimes an extremely sardonic salute, twisting his hand over his breast and bowing deeply.

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1

Fifth Check 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (12) + 1 = 13

"Well, clearly you're smarter than you look. Well played Karval. Check mate, you win."Lang reaches over the board to shake hands, a grin on his face.

NOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo. So close!!! Good game man.

Male Hobgoblin Abjurer 1

Karval stands and shakes Gui Lang's hand. "The same to you, Lang Xiao Bai."
He looks down at the game, and seems to remember something. Instantly, his look of barely-contained anger returns. "A quaint pastime, though the Nagaji is correct--compared to the power of iron or incantation, it is no more than an indulgence."
Indeed. Nicely done! You got some really good rolls--just a bit of bad luck in the last round. Not to mention those two 20s I scored, which I will never see again. XD

Male Nagaji Samurai(Ronin) 1

Kai catches the bowl and reads the scrawled question. When he notices the salute from Toph his eyes narrow. "My path is carved by duty, my ship driven by honor. I follow the way set before me by the unwritten code of loyalty that all warriors must hold to!" He stands up as he finishes the statement and finishes the rest of his tea in one swallow. He then slams the cup down on the table.

Strength: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (4) + 4 = 8

"Well, now that I've exercised my mind, perhaps you could provide some exercise for my blade. Care to step outside and spar a bit? With padded blades of course." He picks up his Fauchard in one hand and motions towards the door with the other.

Proposing a duel in the courtyard, 30' square map. Nonlethal damage by padding the blades, first one to go unconscious or hit 0 loses. No magic.

Male Hobgoblin Abjurer 1

Karval picks up his cup of cold tea and takes a sip. The hobgoblin grimaces.
I'm going to bed now, but Karval will watch any fight with interest, and carefully take note of folks' fighting styles. :33

Male Nagaji Samurai(Ronin) 1

He smiles again showing his full grin of sharp teeth. "Yes a duel, most honorable of you."He bows and strides outside.

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1

Lang follows quickly behind him. Once reaching the yard he waits for TK to be in position, then bows slightly and assumes a fighting posture twenty feet away from Tong Kai."Lets go."

Initiative 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 25

Male Nagaji Samurai(Ronin) 1

Initiative: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (18) + 1 = 19

Kai reaches back and unsheathes his nodachi. He closes his eyes momentarily and whispers as if to the blade itself, "Strike true." Then he bows and assumes a fighting stance.

Wow, I guess you go first.

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1

Lang charges forward as soon as Tong Kai is in position and has finished his bow. He stops a couple paces from TK and uses the long pole of his Fauchard to sweep his legs.

Charge->Trip attack from 10' away.
Trip 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15

The pole causes one leg to buckle but TK maintains his balance.

What is it with me missing my rolls by one today. ~_~'

Male Nagaji Samurai(Ronin) 1

Sweep the leg, sweep the leg!

Kai maintains balance and brings his trusted weapon down at Lang.
Attack: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (19) + 5 = 24
Damage: 1d10 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1

assuming you took a 5' step towards me


Lang takes the heavy blow to his shoulder with a grunt. He dances back quickly and again brings brings his pole down on TK's legs.

5' step back, then Trip again.
1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21

This time Tong Kai hits the dirt with a satisfying thud.

If you choose to stand, my AOO will be another trip
1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 25

Male Nagaji Samurai(Ronin) 1

Yeah I stepped forward, Also realized my nodachi crits on a 18-20. Here's my roll if you accept 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (13) + 5 = 18

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1
Tong Kai wrote:

Yeah, throw another die of damage on there. If I'm still up, then we'll go from there.

Male Nagaji Samurai(Ronin) 1

1d10 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1

Ouch. Retcon the whole tripping thing then.

With a single blow to the forehead Tong Kai drops Lang onto the dirt. "Today is not the day for my ego. he says woozily, before climbing slowly to his feet. "Thank you for reminding me why I normally try to keep my mouth shut." He bows unsteadily and hobbles back into the tea house. "Server! Wine, now! Lots of wine!"

Male Nagaji Samurai(Ronin) 1

Wow, good match, but methinks I need to pay more attention in the beginning.

Kai bows in return. "Good match, had you knocked me down the fight would've been yours. "

Male Half-Orc Barbarian

FYI, can't trip on the AoO to stand, as the AoO happens before the action, and you can't trip a prone opponent.
Toph sticks his trident in the ground outside and holds up his fists as if to start another duel. He rolls one hand over and over horizontally, inquiring "again?"

Male Nagaji Samurai 1 (Order of the Warrior)

Hey sorry I haven't been posting, been at a pathfinder convention 9-12 every day (and will continue to be for two more days) and my brain is dead. Love reading the RP though. :)

Male Nagaji Samurai(Ronin) 1

Kai looks at Toph's gesture, and then around for Karval to interpret. When Karval doesn't respond, he nods and motions for Toph to step into the ring.

Init: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4

Ras, Where is a there a Pathfinder conference? Or am I just a noob?Edit: Wow bad roll.

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1

There are lots of Cons that run pathfinder society. He might be referring to Paizocon though, not sure when that takes place.

Male Half-Orc Barbarian

Initiative 1d20 - 2 ⇒ (17) - 2 = 15
Toph's eyes burn electric as he lurches forward, his cloak blowing as if in a gale, though not a lick of wind is in the air. His mouth opens in a soundless roar, his hood finally blown back around his neck, his dreadlocks whipping violently. With a supernatural speed, he whips a net from under his cloak and casts it over the hesitant Ronin, his sheer power and his opponent's unpreparedness outweighing his lack of form in the attack.

Tong Kai finds himself wrapped tightly in the copper-weighted net.

Net Ranged 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (5) + 7 = 12
Equipped: Spiked Gauntlet(blunted); Net(deployed)

rules used:
... If you hit, the target is entangled. An entangled creature takes a –2 penalty on attack rolls and a –4 penalty on Dexterity, can move at only half speed, and cannot charge or run. If you control the trailing rope by succeeding on an opposed Strength check while holding it, the entangled creature can move only within the limits that the rope allows. If the entangled creature attempts to cast a spell, it must make a concentration check with a DC of 15 + the spell's level or be unable to cast the spell.

An entangled creature can escape with a DC 20 Escape Artist check (a full-round action). The net has 5 hit points and can be burst with a DC 25 Strength check (also a full-round action). A net is useful only against creatures within one size category of you.

A net must be folded to be thrown effectively. The first time you throw your net in a fight, you make a normal ranged touch attack roll. After the net is unfolded, you take a –4 penalty on attack rolls with it. It takes 2 rounds for a proficient user to fold a net and twice that long for a non-proficient one to do so.

Edit:PS. I used my net as a reach melee weapon with the Net Adept Feat, so I'm 5' distant and holding all 10' of the trailing rope.

Male Hobgoblin Abjurer 1

Karval watches with interest.

Male Human (Tian/Ulfen) Inquisitor (Preacher) 1

Lang stumbles back into the courtyard, his beard stained red with wine. He stops to kneel briefly and mutters something under his breath while he touches the wolf's head brooch that holds his half-cloak in place. For a moment his irises glow yellow like a predator's eye reflecting a torchlight. After a second he stands steadily to his feet, his stagger gone. Going over to lean against a wall, he relights his pipe and watches the duel.

Cast Cure Light on self 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3

Male Nagaji Samurai(Ronin) 1

Ministats:AC=16/13/14, HP=13/13

The net flies at the ronin, but as it lands on his head he whirls it and wraps it up into a ball and throws it at his feet. "You think your net can catch me? Ha!" He charges forward swinging his weapon at you.

1d20 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10
1d10 + 4 ⇒ (9) + 4 = 13

Male Half-Orc Barbarian

I target flatfooted touch with that, AC 10; but we'll say that happens. Also, an interesting anrcdote: I believe your AC may be miscalculated. Touch seems to me like it should be 11. Mine on my sheet is wrong too, it doesn't include wooden armor, whoops.
Toph grins wickedly.
I know it can.
With a sharp tug, he twists his entire body to the side, both dancing barely past the wrapped blade and pulling the net into his hand, but he is off balance from the ronin's ferocious attack, and his form is poorer still. He rolls backwards, springing to his feet just outside the Nagaji's reach, and spins the net again, rising the strands to envelope Tong Kai's weapon. He twists with a surprising finesse, and manages to; if barely; remove the wrapped steel from the dangerous Ronin. With a flourish, the net is back in his hand, and he begins to fold it deftly.

AoO with net. 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (2) + 7 = 9
Five foot step away
Disarm with Net 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (9) + 7 = 16
First move to fold Net
