Human

Lisbarr/Rothel

Spoiler:
Roll init please.


Male Deva Shaman 17, Scion of Renewal

Rev:
Not sure if you want it rolled here or in the game thread, so I will roll it here to not interrupt the thread until we're introduced. Initiative:1d20 + 7 ⇒ (19) + 7 = 26


Human

Perfect Rothel. Once Lisbarr chimes in, I'll add you both in and alert you here.


Male Half-Elf Invoker/17 Speaker of the Word

Rev:

Spoiler:
Init: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (12) + 7 = 19


Righty ho. Lisbarr and Rothel are both in the chamber.

Linked to thread here.

This is clumsy, but it sort of makes sense. I'll be getting Levana, Samson and Darwyn out of there shortly.

The Exchange

M

ahh so here's that elusive discussion thread. Been enjoying reading both of these adventures as well, though I can't help but think that it'd be highly entertaining for both sets of these characters to meet up. Heh.

Game on.


Human

Thank you!

At this rate, they may well do, as Group 2 are fast catching up with Group 1 and it might be entertaining if they did combine. I'd have to up the threat level, but it's far from a bad idea :D


Human

Just to let you know, Zerombyr is hoping to join Group 1 (Arishat, Thom, Barel, Lynore and Lanthair) shortly. He may well be posting here with questions about what sort of things would be most help.


Female Wood Elf Cleric / 2

I saw your society name Zerombr, I grew up with a Matt Reed. Do you live in TN?

Heh, I thought we were Group 2...

You are :) I've sent Zerombyr about 3 contradictory messages about group numbers already this evening. Completely accurate about the party itself, just rubbish on digits.

The Exchange

M

not only did you send me falsifying info Rev, you also misspelled my name! Hah! For the future I suggest we just call me Zero, its my standard handle

@Lynore - I'm in the Midwest, but not Tennessee, sorry.

@Everyone - This technically will be my first 4E game that I will be playing in, I've read a great deal of PbP stories on the site, and have ran some basic skirmishes for a few interested friends of mine, to show them how it works, but I am very inexperienced here, and playing a Paladin is going to be a great challenge to me. I am also moving this weekend, so I may not actively be able to game until next monday or so, but rest assured my character is just needing finishing touches, and should be ready soon!


Apologies Zero :)

Don't worry too much. I'm confident everyone will offer any help you need and it will be nice to have you along. Let me know when you're ready to roll and I'll do you a nice spoiler.

The Exchange

M

I think I am ready to roll, I have to say with disdain that Paizo ate my big status page for my character. *sigh* I'll do it again LATER.

Also I am moving this weekend, so if my introduction needs to wait till Monday or so, I am fine with it.


Female Tiefling Warlord/Infernal Strategist 18

Hello. Nice to have another melee-er to hit things with. I hope you'll enjoy the game, and if you've any problems we'll try to help out.

The Exchange

M

melee's always been my choice, but playing a tank in this system is a bit different, I may ask a few tactical questions to you, Arishat, during combat, which makes sense since you're the warlord and all.

Hopefully you'll enjoy my 2 extra MBA attacks, Virtuous Strike, and Hold Fast

I do notice I'll have to up my defenses a bit more, after I get a bit more gear, course I also am coming in at a level behind you guys, so there's that too, heh.


Human

Welcome, Zero and I hope you enjoy yourself. You have a spoilered intro up and have already had the panicky emails asking you to up yourself to level 15.

Silver Crusade

Female Human 18 Paladin/Heartwarder

and Thom gets sneak attacked by a distraction. *laugh* I really imagined Raya's words were going to be cut short by shouts of 'Alarm' I shouldn't be surprised though.

Silver Crusade

Female Human 18 Paladin/Heartwarder

Rev, I know you're pretty lenient on rebuilds and the like, but I wanted to ask anyway if I can do a few minor changes to Raya after this battle?

In case this goes through, I'm looking for suggestions as to how to boost my defenses a bit more. I realize that we're actually playing against higher tier monsters than 'standard' and I'm fine with that, I'd just prefer to find a way to bring my defenses up a bit more, maybe even get some shieldplay going as well.

Maybe I just need to fight defensively...


Male Half-elf Assassin 14 / Obsidian Stalker

Since it will be a start of a new campaign, I know Rev is pretty much okay with whatever we want to change. I know Nayce has way too much "glass cannon" syndrome for my taste. If he survives, I may have to do something about that.


Nayce, this might not be thread you think it is ;-).

Halls is turning into a new campaign, not Tomb, to the best of my knowledge.

Ha! Too true. Look at me getting my PbP's mixed up!

The post made me think of him, so that must be how I got my lines crossed.

Lanthair, on the other hand, is tough as nails, and needs no revision. Carry on.

Feel free. He does seem a little fragile at the moment. Unlike Lanthair who is impossible to dispose of.

digging this update on the pbp game forum, very nice!

now if only it had a feature to let you know when its your turn!


Female Tiefling Warlord/Infernal Strategist 18

Rather liking the changes myself. Very neat.

And, I'll note that Arishat is being herself at the moment, and worrying about humans thinking they owe a tiefling an explanation. It irritates her paranoia gland. If anyone dislikes having a paranoid tiefling in the group, I'll tone it down.


Arishat, don't worry about being paranoid here. I personally think 4E could use more RPing, he he.

Thom is clearly infatuated with Raya, so Arishat may have some competition here. Just makes life interesting right?


Male Halfling Monk 18 / Ghostwalker

Keep it up. Don't forget, Lanthair is somewhat new to the group himself, so his endorsement of Raya probably doesn't count for much with those who were on since the beginning.

That said, though, he tends to be rather aloof from the suspicions and arguments of the group. He has enemies that need kicking.

Silver Crusade

Female Human 18 Paladin/Heartwarder

Its all good. I don't mind really, I decided I wanted to play a different kind of paladin anyway, the one who doesn't scream all holy righteousness. Her views, I want to make very subtle. So she'll end up disappointing Arishat's views at least.

Also, I've got myself a few dailies to use up, one says effectively, 'pick an ally, anytime that ally gets injured from an enemy the ally hasn't marked, deal DC damage (15) to em."

I was thinking if Barel's going to play up off-tank, I'll slap that on him, but I do know he can mark, I just dunno if the warden mark is automatic or not, It can always go to someone else as well

I think we're all settled up, shall we investigate further now?


Human

Personally I'm all for roleplay in any system and I'm really enjoying this.


Female Wood Elf Cleric / 2

Lynore, Lanth and Arishat are all melee so we get slapped around a decent amount, and none of us can mark that i am aware of.

yep explore away

i am just being the paranoid assassin that gets wide eyed when a paladin walks into a room


Female Tiefling Warlord/Infernal Strategist 18

Barel is washing his feet. Thom is raising his skirts. Arishat is steering with her tail. Lanthair is chin deep. Lynore walks on water. Raya is a paladin.

There has to be a joke in this somewhere.

Agreed. If only I could think of one.


PC Caster Race

Ooh, how 'bout: a warden, warlord, and war wizard walk into a bar… actually that might make a viable party if a warlock and warpriest were at the bar too.


Rev is experiencing connection problems

Apologies to Homestuck.

You're a PARTY LEADER, and as such have a strong interest in PARTY SURVIVAL. You have a knack for having people WORK TOGETHER DESPITE VARYING INTERESTS. You have found yourself surrounded by a RAGTAG GROUP OF ADVENTURERS, none of which have MUCH OF A RELATABLE THEME.

You have approached an ODDLY MISTY LAKE, featuring GOLDEN RUNES and a FOG COVERED VEIL.

You have a FOLDING BOAT in which you can move three party members at a time.

Arishat does not want to ride in the boat with the PALADIN.
Lanthair is alright with STRONG SWIMMING across.
Thom prefers not to get his robes wet.
Lynore does not want the PALADIN to try to SMITE or CONVERT her.
Raya feels Thom's LECHEROUS GAZE and is discomforted by it.
Barel does not want to ride in the boat or swim across.

How do you get all party members across without having to suffer a LAMENT OF DAMPNESS, EYEROLLS from any party member from a PREACHY SERMON, Barel's fragrant "scent", or RUSTED ARMOR?


Female Wood Elf Cleric / 2

Lynore, Thom and Lanthair ride the boat across
Lanthair brings the boat back and picks up Arishat and You and then returns to the other side, you take the boat back and slip a drugged milk to Barel and drag his asleep form into the boat A-Team style and whistle as you paddle across the lake back to the group

The Exchange

M

I was thinking Arishat tells everyone to suck it up, and we deal with it.


Female Wood Elf Cleric / 2

that would work too, i just like it when a plan comes together :P


Human

I now have the best image of Barel all smug and even stinkier standing on the island while everyone else wades, swims or walks across.


Female Tiefling Warlord/Infernal Strategist 18

It needs to be raining next time we go outside. Not blood, though.


Human

What makes you think mere rain will have any effect on Barel?


Female Tiefling Warlord/Infernal Strategist 18

I'm not sure it would. But I could believe very hard that it was making him cleaner. Like an illusion, only I choose to fail the save.

The Exchange

M

found an interesting article about unusual skill uses, and how a person with a trained skill might look at the world. thought you guys might find interest in it as well.

http://at-will.omnivangelist.net/series/serious-skills/

It suggests for using Endurance as I did, to help postpone Mummy Rot, that the penalty for failure would be a healing surge. I think that's a good cost for it too.


Human

Thanks for the link Zero. I hadn't seen that site before and there's some interesting stuff on it.


Female Tiefling Warlord/Infernal Strategist 18

Tempting as it is, I don't really want to fail the saving throw. Although...

I've already got an idea for how to take Thom out.

The Exchange

M

we're effectively in turn order now, right? So Lanithar's up?

Also, if someone is dominated, let's say by this mist, and gets dominated again for a round, does the first one come back after the 2nd domination ends?


Human

You have to fail two saves before you go utterly bonkers.

Zero, I'm being dense, I'm sure, but I don't understand what you're asking. Could you clarify?


You are taking me out Ari? Wonderful, what restaurant are we goi--

err... that's not what you meant, is it.

Uh oh...


Female Tiefling Warlord/Infernal Strategist 18

Well. First you betrayed me with that succubus and now you are making doe eyes at a paladin. Of course I feel betrayed. The long tail of tiefling vengeance will not be far away.

The Exchange

M

Rev, my question is, let's hypothetically use Arishat as our guinea pig.

She gets dominated by the mist, she gets dominated again by, say a succubus. The succubus' domination ends at the end of her turn, does the mist domination stick past that, or did the succubus overwrite its domination?
