Dead Goblins, Dead Geckos

One thing I thought that might help to for initial combat encounter character placement is a marching order.

Here is my take on a marching order, but let me know if you want to change anything.
Single Wide 5'
Bel'Tanis
Scoria
Thaddeus
Midori
Khrondak
Notick

Double Wide 10'?
Bel'Tanis/Scoria
Thaddeus/Midori
Khrondak/Notick


Dead Goblins, Dead Geckos

Hmm. Scoria does need to replace the Shuriken she's already used. 12 MW Shuriken should be 73gp 2sp, (50 ammunition gaining full MW price, Shurken sold at 5 units for 1gp, 50 shuriken being 10gp, MW +300gp, 310gp for 50, 10 being 61gp, 2 more adding 12gp 2sp.)

Anyways, does anyone mind Scoria buying the Shuriken? Since it's a communal gold pile now.

Do shuriken act like ammunition? They break after a hit or are recovered 50% of the time? I guess they do, Yuk, that sucks. I think they would be more like daggers.

I have no problem if you want to buy MW ammo, it just always seemed like a waste with the limited use aspect. Granted, it may have to wait until we return from our trek after the gobbo graverobbers.


Female Human [Tian-Min] Bard-3: HP 19; AC15/T11/F+2/R+4/W+4/Init+1/Per+7

Just a heads-up: My family and I (me, hubby, daughter [who's now 19!)] are going on a vacation trip this week. We're leaving Tuesday and will be back late Sunday.

We're taking a lap-top so I should be able to post at least once a day except Tuesday.

Itinerary:
Tuesday - drive to Orlando
Wednesday- if need be finish drive, then alternate Universal/Islands Of Adventure
Thursday - alternate Universal/Islands Of Adventure, night time for the haunted stuff
Friday - drive to Busch Gardens Williamsburg, park stuff & haunted stuff
Saturday - drive to King's Dominion, park stuff and haunted stuff
Sunday - drive home, collapse

I'm not abandoning anything, but I may not be real coherent

To save time, DM-Valkur, you have permission to NPC me during any fights.


Dead Goblins, Dead Geckos

Midori have fun in sunny Florida and thanks for letting me know!

I'll NPC you when appropriate.


Male Human (Shoanti) Cleric of Gorum (Separatist) 3 / HP 28 of 28 / F+5 R+3 W+6 / AC 16.12.14 / Init. +2 / Perc +4

Hey guys, just wanted to inform that on top of a killer week on my job, my fianceé's grandfather passed away this morning and we'll be attending the funeral. Long story short, I won't be able to post for at least until tonight, hope to find some time later so as to not let you guys down. See you later.


Dead Goblins, Dead Geckos

Sorry for your loss Khrondak.


Max HP: 27 | AC: 16 (11 T / 15 FF) -or- 18 w/shield (17 FF) | F/R/W +5/+2/+3 (+1 vs fear, +2 vs evil) | CMD 17 | Ini +1 | Prcptn +4

Seconded, Khrondak - wish there was something I could say. Were you or your fiancee close to your fiancee's granddad?


Female Human [Tian-Min] Bard-3: HP 19; AC15/T11/F+2/R+4/W+4/Init+1/Per+7

Thirded here.


Male Human (Shoanti) Cleric of Gorum (Separatist) 3 / HP 28 of 28 / F+5 R+3 W+6 / AC 16.12.14 / Init. +2 / Perc +4

They were close, yes; he had been living with her parents for the last couple of years and we saw him often. But, he was 94, so it wasn't completely unexpected. We're glad he was lucid and well and didn't spend his last years sick in a bed, it started last week and progressed kind of fast, so for the most part I think he didn't suffer much or burden anyone.

Thanks for your words and understanding. Anyways, I'm back now. :)


Max HP: 27 | AC: 16 (11 T / 15 FF) -or- 18 w/shield (17 FF) | F/R/W +5/+2/+3 (+1 vs fear, +2 vs evil) | CMD 17 | Ini +1 | Prcptn +4

So it sounds like in-character we're wanting individual tracking of loot?


Female Oread Monk of the Sacred Mountain 3 (AC: 16 (20) [T: 15 F: 14] HP: 24/29 Fort: +6 Ref: +6 Will +7 Perc: +9 Init: +2)

On the subject of loot, I'm of the opinion of Need before Greed. For example, Scoria would probably get a lower share of the loot, due to not needing as much expensive equipment, while our other fighters may need MW equipment soon enough. Midori in particular needs a ranged weapon, I think, and the only thing that Scoria might need are some MW shuriken, since she's a flurry thrower.

So, in summary, we should just agree to buy as we need, like potions and scrolls for our spellcasters and MW weapons for our fighters.


Male Human (Shoanti) Cleric of Gorum (Separatist) 3 / HP 28 of 28 / F+5 R+3 W+6 / AC 16.12.14 / Init. +2 / Perc +4

As long as no one gets frustrated and everybody has access to cool magic items, I'm fine with a communal pool. In-character, Khrondak will behave as if he's entitled to a share.

And I'm fine with buying Midori a crossbow. :)


Male Human Whiteblade Magus of Iomedae (AC: 14 (18 w/shield) [T: 10 FF: 14 (18)] | HP: 22/28 | F+4, R+0, W+3 | Init: +2 |Perc: +0/+2 with blade drawn)

Okay, so I will be going through the motions of "paying" each member their "share" when it comes to loot? In the end it will all be IC, but OOC we are just pooling, buy what is needed for each member.

Scoria, I do have a question about the MW Shuriken. It costs 29.5 gp more gold for 5 shuriken to be MW. The price is 30 times more than a regular one, but it is only a one shot item. As ammunition, if it hits, it is destroyed. If it misses, there's only a 50% chance it can be re-used. I'm not saying no, or even that it's my decision, I'm just asking if you are sure it's worth the extra cost, and you really want to spend it?

It's a +1 to hit, on 12 throws (or as flurries 6 rounds of combat) for 73gp.


Male Human (Shoanti) Cleric of Gorum (Separatist) 3 / HP 28 of 28 / F+5 R+3 W+6 / AC 16.12.14 / Init. +2 / Perc +4

I've never been a fan of spending on ammunition, I just don't think it's worth it... usually I save for bigger rewards later.

Ok, I've just realized the upside of having split shares - spend however you want without having to negotiate with the other players.


Female Human [Tian-Min] Bard-3: HP 19; AC15/T11/F+2/R+4/W+4/Init+1/Per+7

Oh, believe me, Midori wants a crossbow!

Ammo would be nice, too.

;P


Male Half Elf Magus / level 3 (AC: 15 [T:12 F: 13] [HP: 18/18] Fort: +3 Ref: +3 Will +2 Perc: +4 Init: +2)

But but but... What about the townsfolk!

Just keeding!! I'm, personally, more prone to prefer even split in finances. It eliminates the need to rationalize other people's purchases, and it also prevents jealousy of items.

E.G. - A +10 Falcata of Awesome is offered for 2000 gold, and a +10 Earthbreaker of Horror is offered for 2000 gold. It's the only time in the game it would be offered. Who gets what they want?

However, I wouldn't mind OOCly hybridizing our money so it's even split, but someone could ask for help to purchase something, in which we then can offer to pay up to help (Like everyone is willing to do for Midori!)


Female Oread Monk of the Sacred Mountain 3 (AC: 16 (20) [T: 15 F: 14] HP: 24/29 Fort: +6 Ref: +6 Will +7 Perc: +9 Init: +2)

I'm planning on optimizing Scoria's build to be about hitting hard with shuriken flurries - a lot of Sacred Mountain abilities stem on her staying in the same square. MW Shuriken may seem expensive, considering that they're consumed, yes - but at these lower levels, having that +1 to hit makes a big difference when it comes to combat. Though she'd probably save them for when she really needed the extra accuracy.


Dead Goblins, Dead Geckos

Keep in mind, I will try to make sure every one gets magic items they can use and keep the value equal as possible.


Female Oread Monk of the Sacred Mountain 3 (AC: 16 (20) [T: 15 F: 14] HP: 24/29 Fort: +6 Ref: +6 Will +7 Perc: +9 Init: +2)

Glove of Infinite Magic Shuriken, please. :3


Max HP: 27 | AC: 16 (11 T / 15 FF) -or- 18 w/shield (17 FF) | F/R/W +5/+2/+3 (+1 vs fear, +2 vs evil) | CMD 17 | Ini +1 | Prcptn +4

I can't get to any shared document sites like google docs or google drive or whatever it's called these days from the office, but if we want to go with the shares method I can put together a spread sheet when I get home tonight.

While I'm not a huge fan of lots of bookkeeping in my games (my players track money, but not weight or encumberance for instance) it seems like it might be helpful in this case.

Let me know if that's something you all would like me to put together. If it'll help, I'll be happy to do it.


Male Human Whiteblade Magus of Iomedae (AC: 14 (18 w/shield) [T: 10 FF: 14 (18)] | HP: 22/28 | F+4, R+0, W+3 | Init: +2 |Perc: +0/+2 with blade drawn)

Okay, so what I'm hearing is a preference for even splits.

Here's what I'm thinking -
Coin: Split 7 ways, (1 share each, 1 party pool)
Items: Go to whoever needs it most, if no one will use it, it gets sold
Sold Items: The money from all sold items goes to the coin split. That means even if say Midori finds a +1 shortbow, uses it from finding to selling, it is not her money from selling, it is shared money.

To do otherwise means having to track the value of each and every item, each member receives, to account for equal value. It is just easier to split all sold items amongst the whole, even if they were used exclusively by only one person.

EDIT: Bel'Tanis, we shouldn't need a doc, if we are only tracking coin shares. Which is another reason it is easier with all coin (even from sold items) going to split. That way we either have items we are using, items we are selling, and each coin share. Once you get into each person's WBL value based on what they have/use, then you run the headache of excess bookkeeping. Sometimes, it's just a whole lot easier to put it all in one big pile, and buy what we as a party need for the party.


Max HP: 27 | AC: 16 (11 T / 15 FF) -or- 18 w/shield (17 FF) | F/R/W +5/+2/+3 (+1 vs fear, +2 vs evil) | CMD 17 | Ini +1 | Prcptn +4

In that case, with the 726 gp we earned from the spoils of the raid, that'd be a party split of 103.7gp for each of the 6 party members and 103.8gp to the group share?

EDIT: Just saw Thaddeus' in-game post. I'm fine with splitting evenly to the gold piece and any extra silvers/coppers going into the party fund if that works for everyone.


Male Human Whiteblade Magus of Iomedae (AC: 14 (18 w/shield) [T: 10 FF: 14 (18)] | HP: 22/28 | F+4, R+0, W+3 | Init: +2 |Perc: +0/+2 with blade drawn)

I just figured rounding to the nearest gold, with all spillage going to party pool, would be a cleaner split. Do we really want to break it down to the last copper?

EDIT: Just saw Bel'Tanis' edit. Disregard, unless this is also an issue.


Male Human (Shoanti) Cleric of Gorum (Separatist) 3 / HP 28 of 28 / F+5 R+3 W+6 / AC 16.12.14 / Init. +2 / Perc +4

Extra gold goes to the pool.


Female Human [Tian-Min] Bard-3: HP 19; AC15/T11/F+2/R+4/W+4/Init+1/Per+7

I'm fine with extra going to the pool.


Dead Goblins, Dead Geckos

Don't forget the 50gp Lord Foxglove gave as well. Plus riding horses for everybody.


Female Oread Monk of the Sacred Mountain 3 (AC: 16 (20) [T: 15 F: 14] HP: 24/29 Fort: +6 Ref: +6 Will +7 Perc: +9 Init: +2)

...Can Scoria sell her horse? Because she does not like horses. <.< put it all in the party fund.


Dead Goblins, Dead Geckos

I had a heck of a time getting to the site today!

@Scoria, you can sell your horse if you wish. Since everybody received one, you can keep the gold.


Female Human [Tian-Min] Bard-3: HP 19; AC15/T11/F+2/R+4/W+4/Init+1/Per+7

Maybe we should buy a wagon?


Max HP: 27 | AC: 16 (11 T / 15 FF) -or- 18 w/shield (17 FF) | F/R/W +5/+2/+3 (+1 vs fear, +2 vs evil) | CMD 17 | Ini +1 | Prcptn +4

So we're apparently about to get hammered by a big hurricane (I say apparently because we're already under a state of emergency here) and we're being told to expect to lose power. Should that happen, my posting rate may drop considerably.

Just an FYI!


Male Human Whiteblade Magus of Iomedae (AC: 14 (18 w/shield) [T: 10 FF: 14 (18)] | HP: 22/28 | F+4, R+0, W+3 | Init: +2 |Perc: +0/+2 with blade drawn)

Bel'Tanis, where are you at? You expecting "Frankenstorm"?


Male Half Elf Magus / level 3 (AC: 15 [T:12 F: 13] [HP: 18/18] Fort: +3 Ref: +3 Will +2 Perc: +4 Init: +2)

Big storm rolling in on Virginia and the Carolina's. There was another storm that went through the mid-west, which when it meets the hurricane, is suppose to cause even more turmoil.

Heart's with'ya Bel'Tanis. Stay safe!


Max HP: 27 | AC: 16 (11 T / 15 FF) -or- 18 w/shield (17 FF) | F/R/W +5/+2/+3 (+1 vs fear, +2 vs evil) | CMD 17 | Ini +1 | Prcptn +4

Yeah, I'm in NJ, the southern end of the state, and from all reports it seems like we're anticipating Hurricane Sandy to show up and beat us to smithereens.


Male Human Whiteblade Magus of Iomedae (AC: 14 (18 w/shield) [T: 10 FF: 14 (18)] | HP: 22/28 | F+4, R+0, W+3 | Init: +2 |Perc: +0/+2 with blade drawn)

I'm in NW Baltimore, so a little bit inland at least. They're preparing like crazy, so hoping that because of that it won't be as bad.


Female Human [Tian-Min] Bard-3: HP 19; AC15/T11/F+2/R+4/W+4/Init+1/Per+7

Pittsburgh here. They're saying it could get this far.

Oh, and just a tiny bit of humor: there's a movie called Superstorm. When I saw all the indicators for Frankenstorm, they looked a lot like the setup for this.


Dead Goblins, Dead Geckos

Stay safe everybody.


Male Human (Shoanti) Cleric of Gorum (Separatist) 3 / HP 28 of 28 / F+5 R+3 W+6 / AC 16.12.14 / Init. +2 / Perc +4

Just stopping by to say I'm reading the boards, I'm just waiting a bit for the party to reunite at the Rusty Dragon. Oh, and stay safe (2).


Dead Goblins, Dead Geckos

Khrondak and Midori thanks for waiting while the combat resolves.


Female Human [Tian-Min] Bard-3: HP 19; AC15/T11/F+2/R+4/W+4/Init+1/Per+7

Still here. No issues so far, power still on, just lots of rain and the threat of snow.


Max HP: 27 | AC: 16 (11 T / 15 FF) -or- 18 w/shield (17 FF) | F/R/W +5/+2/+3 (+1 vs fear, +2 vs evil) | CMD 17 | Ini +1 | Prcptn +4

I'm back! Made it through Sandy in one piece. Thanks for your patience and understanding.


Max HP: 27 | AC: 16 (11 T / 15 FF) -or- 18 w/shield (17 FF) | F/R/W +5/+2/+3 (+1 vs fear, +2 vs evil) | CMD 17 | Ini +1 | Prcptn +4

How many heroes does it take to vanquish a single goblin?

More than four, apparently =P


Dead Goblins, Dead Geckos

Bel'Tanis, glad you made it out from Super Sandy.

Yeah the gobbo has been a tough little guy for sure.


Dead Goblins, Dead Geckos

I will be posting up XP tonight for the recent events. Sorry crazy day at the salt mines!


Female Oread Monk of the Sacred Mountain 3 (AC: 16 (20) [T: 15 F: 14] HP: 24/29 Fort: +6 Ref: +6 Will +7 Perc: +9 Init: +2)

<.< I'm guessing that you got caught up with something else and couldn't post XP gains. Or you're waiting for us to resolve what's happening in the game right now.


Dead Goblins, Dead Geckos

Yeah sorry work has been crazy this week, everybody is trying to finish stuff up before the end of the year.

I will be posting XP later tonight or Saturday morning. We have now finished Part II. Things will start getting interesting soon.


Max HP: 27 | AC: 16 (11 T / 15 FF) -or- 18 w/shield (17 FF) | F/R/W +5/+2/+3 (+1 vs fear, +2 vs evil) | CMD 17 | Ini +1 | Prcptn +4

No sweat, Valkur. In a similar vein, I'll be travelling for the weekend and won't be back until Tuesday night. I should have reliable internet access throughout, so I doubt it'll be a problem but I could be wrong.

I still kinda feel like I need to talk about the unfortunate sequence of events at the general store with the group and with Ameiko before we head off into the next thing though. Hopefully Ameiko might have some insight as a long-time member of the community into how to best deal with the store owner and his amorous daughter. =\
