Creating discussion thread...


Male Human Swashbuckler (Flying Blade) 3

Cork is not only 96% guaranteed to burn better than hands, it's also doctor-recommended by 4 out of 5 physicians, as well.


F Humanoid (Human, Elf) Summoner 3

One in five physicians recommend burning your hands over cork? 0_o

But would cork be too obvious? Could the audience see it? What if you tried tree sap instead? It's flammable, spreadable, and I imagine it would stick to your knives instead of dripping. (Though I've never tried it before.)


Male Human Swashbuckler (Flying Blade) 3

Tree sap sounds like a good, plausible alternative. Thanks, Evalee!

Dark Archive

There are plenty of things thicker than oil that would stay put and burn well. Sterno cans are basically alcohol with a gelling agent. I'm sure there are medieval equivalents.

Well, Evalee did dump strength- down to seven. But I think the reason why so many people tanked WIS is because it's the most fun to roleplay, at least by my reasoning.

That's the best possible reason.

On an unrelated topic- aren't back and forth out of character posts supposed to go in the discussion thread?

Yes, they should, but you'll find that I'm not the best at following that rule.

Amusing: the DC for an intimidate check is 10+HD+WIS, so Semsephiel can successfully intimidate anyone in the party on a roll of one.

Hey, we can intimidate him right back! ...or we could, in theory...

Stupid size modifiers to intimidate checks.

Yes. Total the damage, then halve it.

GM:
Semsephiel threatens everywhere witin five through ten feet with his claws, and everwhere within fifteen through twenty feet with his Flying Blade. If someone moves through his threatened territory, he's going to thwack them, doing nonlethal half damage. He has two attacks of opportunity a round.


Outsider (Devil)

Does Aphrashai have a mini? Or is he starting the battle invisible?

I think my team's ready for battle. You guys?


Female Halfling Aberrant Bloodrager (Primalist) 3

I think we're more or less ready, and it looks like Aphrashai's mini was just accidentally neglected.


Male Human Swashbuckler (Flying Blade) 3

Hate to hold things up, but I think there's a lot to be resolved before Nate's turn, and there's a lot that can change with all of what's going on.


Male Human Swashbuckler (Flying Blade) 3

Sigh...so no spell to save against, then? Sure would like to have those rolls back. Oh well, team NorthEast shall still prevail! :p


Outsider (Devil)

Shooting arrows at the bat might not be in good taste, Zarine. My understanding is it's already unconscious. Semsephiel went right through it's hitpoints and dealt 6 points of lethal damage. (Before falling damage.)

And to Erin . . . sorry. 0_o

To make it up to you, Evalee will craft some muleback cords after the fight.

@Nathaniel team NorthEast shall prevail as long as we have a common enemy . . . and we might still take potshots at targets of opportunity. :P

Hey, no worries. Seeing as I was about to nuke you from orbit, I figure turnabout is fair play.

Well, that's me speaking, anyway. Erin is just about ready to throttle you for daring to lay a finger on her beloved familiar.

Sephy feels the same way about his summoner. :)

Shadow Lodge

Alright, so who's turn is it? did evalee/Semsephiel actually go yet, or just make the AoO?


Male Human Swashbuckler (Flying Blade) 3

I'm waiting to see how Semsephiel's AOO plays out, then I'm up.

Evalee/Semsephiel went between Clyde and Aphrashai, then Semsephiel's attack of opportunity grounded Erin. Nathaniel's up now.

Dark Archive

Evalee/Semsephiel held until after Clyde and double-moved. I've updated the order. Nathaniel is up, then (if I'm not mistaken), it's back to them already.

But, Erin isn't down and out yet. She's got 34 hit points while raging, and she's only taken 27 damage.


Male Human Swashbuckler (Flying Blade) 3

Erin, that's not an opportunity I'm interested in pursuing.

Failure can be tolerated. Puns, meanwhile, are unacceptable.

Ashak, I just realized that attacking with two weapons takes a full attack action. You've been moving more than 5ft and making two attacks, which you wouldn't be able to do.

Hmm? I think I've only taken full-attacks after a 5 ft. step. Did I mess up the map somehow?

Dark Archive

Maybe not. You're certainly narrating your action as if you're moving further than that. I haven't been taking screenshots of the map so that I can see where you were before and after your move.

Shadow Lodge

I guess you're right that I haven't been very clear in my narrations. I'll be sure to put OOC tags from now on if its a 5 ft. step. I've just been trying to make the movements dramatic, mechanically i've only been moving the 5 ft.


Male Human Swashbuckler (Flying Blade) 3

I'm pretty sure Ashak had to move further than 5' to reset his flank on Nathaniel. Then again, not sure if there even was a flank...the to hit bonus suggested there was, but no sneak attack damage, now that I looked. With that being said, Team West's tactics were sound and the dice favored them. Congrats!

Edit: ahhh, I'm thinking I missed the performance combat bonuses. Well that settles that, then!

Dark Archive

So the rest of you know, I discussed it with Erin via PM, and we agreed to retcon her familiar to a flying squirrel instead of a bat. This should make for a more balanced character, and we agreed that the visual of a halfling riding a man-sized squirrel was more entertaining.


Male Flying Squirrel Familiar (Mauler) 3

Indeed!


F Humanoid (Human, Elf) Summoner 3

Flying squirrels glide, right? How do you plan to get up to altitude? (Though maybe that was what was meant by "more balanced" . . . I do suppose flight is pretty strong at level three. Do you plan to give it magical flight later on?)

I do agree that riding squirrels are much underused.


Female Halfling Aberrant Bloodrager (Primalist) 3

Yeah, I won't be riding it in combat anymore, just for performances and such. We might revisit the whole "flying mount" thing once the party gets to a level where that's a more reasonable option, but for now Erin will just make do with fighting from the ground.

I'll allow some time for roleplay. Say goodbye, meet for drinks if you want. I'll wait until it looks like you're done before jumping to your arrival the next day.

Well, Evalee is under drinking age for a human in most modern countries, and half-elves age slower than humans. While I don't know what the drinking laws are in your setting (or if there even are any) I do know that Semsephiel probably wouldn't let his charge drink anything stronger than hot chocolate.

In unrelated news: Merry Christmas everyone! I may or may not be able to post tomorrow; the family is coming over to celebrate a reskinned pagan winter festival complete with boreal toy-smiths and flying caribou. I'll probably post, just letting you know why not if not in advance.


F Humanoid (Human, Elf) Summoner 3

I'm trying to think of a performance that doesn't take any spells. (I'll need them later.) I guess I could replicate my audition, but that seems boring.


GM, would you mind putting Aphrashai in the previous characters tab?

Well, there's always cantrips! A little creative use of arcane mark, light, and mage hand could go a long way.

I've created a doc for campaign notes. The link is at the top of the page with the one for the battle grid. So far it's just links and quick stats for all of the PCs and common rolls that I can copy/paste, but other campaign/setting info will be added there as it becomes available. You can also add your own notes there if you have something that will be helpful to the group. For now, please check that all of the stats I have entered for your character(s) are correct, including the bonuses in the dice roll section, then post here to let me know you have done it.


Male Hobgoblin Knife Master 3

Everything looks right for Ashak


Male Human Swashbuckler (Flying Blade) 3

Everything looks good at the moment.


F Humanoid (Human, Elf) Summoner 3

Stats look right for Evalee and Semsephiel.


F Humanoid (Human, Elf) Summoner 3

It's been a couple of days. Should we assume everyone who's going to post has?


Female Halfling Aberrant Bloodrager (Primalist) 3

Sorry, been busy traveling. I'll post in the next few minutes.

Dark Archive

That's what I figured. I'll allow another day or two for others with the same issue.

Oh, Erin's base Fortitude bonus should be two lower now, since she had a +2 bonus from her flying fox familiar that's been retconned away. Also, keep in mind that she gets a +2 bonus on Fort and Will saves when in bloodrage.

Dark Archive

You can edit the doc. Please put in the correct information.

Dark Archive

Also, flying fox giving a bonus to fort doesn't sound right. Bats and flying squirrels both give a bonus to fly, and I don't see a specific entry for flying fox familiars. Do you have a source on that?

Yeah, it's from Bestiary 5. Moot now, of course, but there you have it.

Dark Archive

Huh. Fair enough. I wonder why that isn't on d20pfsrd. Anyway, as you say, it's moot now.


Male Human Swashbuckler (Flying Blade) 3

Ooc I would definitely say that Nathaniel doesn’t know what Demogorgon is, for sure. But if he had had tentacles for arms he’d be pretty sure he wouldn’t want to mess with it.

Dark Archive

When I actually read the description of the demogorgon, I actually did consider what type of reskinning it would take to make one. This one is actually an evolution of some ideas I've used with some past PCs, though, and I would rather see how it works.

Besides, with Evalee already summoning a "famous" demon, making Zeera's eidolon a demogorgon would be a bit too similar.
