Righto lads, lets get things squared away quick-smart so that we can get on the road :)

First order of the day is to check in here with your alias and let me know when it is fully completed and ready for crunch checking. Any final questions and queries on build should be asked so that I may answer.

Once we've all assembled and been checked then I'll get the game thread rocking (hoping for early this week).

I feel Shorga's profile is ready for crunch checking. If you wouldn't mind giving it a once-over I'd appreciate it.

Icarus reporting for duty. What kind of stuff did you want to discuss about the factotum?


Thanks for picking me, DM Voice! Looking forward to getting on the road!

I relied on Hero Lab to create Otis, so I hope he's ready for the crunch check.
I feel there is a bit of an overlap with Icarus in the skills department, would you mind if I switched something around? Say, Disable Device - don't think we need two people with it.

I was also thinking of going multi or prestige after level 3, perhaps going ranger/horizon walker.

Belated Thank You on choosing Shorga for this one, I know it wasn't an easy decision! Everyone, I'm excited to play with you! I'm gonna be one of those annoying people who tries to alter Shorga's speaking voice in an unconventional way. If it gets too confusing/illegible please let me know and I'll make adjustments.

I'm excited!


Male Human Factotum Lvl 4; Hp15/28, Perception4 Int2, Fort2 Ref5 Will4, AC16 T12 F13,

I'm pretty excited for this group as well, I have played with Voice as a DM before and he is a good one, constantly asking for group feedback and he listens to what you want to do as a player. I look forward to adventuring with you all.

My character is going to be a little idiosyncratic as well as he is a master of disguises and making people believe that he is something that he is not, since he actually has abilities from multiple classes, as such when he first meets everyone he will be telling them that he is someone and something else.


Elf Alchemist 2 (HP 13 | AC 16 | T 13 | FF 13 | CMD 15 | F +3 | R +6 | W -1| Init +5 | Per +6 )

Thanks! I am very excited. After about 20 years of not playing RPGs I have become quite fascinated with Pathfinder and have been running games at home for my boys, but this will be my first chance to play (other than adventures the boys made up). This sounds like a great adventure. I'll try to get the sheet finalized tonight or tomorrow.

What's a factotum?

An ancient nerdy know it all native american wooden pole, standing about 12 feet... oh wait I was thinking of something else. I'll just let Icarus explain ;)


Primordial Ooze

Otis - massaging characters is 100% allowed. So switch away.

I'm fairly open when it comes to character modification even after we get underway, so just ask if you'd prefer to have a particular ability changed out.

Icarus - the questions will come out as we progress really, but for 1st level as long as your sheet has full details of what you're capable of at first level we should be ok.

Eg. for arcane dilettante - is that limited to arcane / divine alone or is it open?

Kiren - a Factotum is essentially an everyman. Can pick what he's good at to suit the situation presented before him, and by the time the next fight rolls around it may change again. It's a 3.5 character class that Icarus will be updating to Pathfinder compliance.

Full crunch reviews will be tonight when my own little ones are asleep :)


Elf Alchemist 2 (HP 13 | AC 16 | T 13 | FF 13 | CMD 15 | F +3 | R +6 | W -1| Init +5 | Per +6 )

Some questions:

Working on my inventory, looks like an alchemist's lab will take up 200gp of my cash. How detailed do I need to get...do I need to list numbers of flasks and so forth? Is there some standard equipment pack like the adventurer's kit in the Starter Set?

Can I specify an archetype now? I would like to take Grenadier.

Can I change a trait? I'm not sure that perform ability will be useful, I have a poor charisma and no class skill in it.

Any advice from my colleagues on equipment (or selection of extracts if I can change those)?

Am I allowed to prepare multiples of one extract?


Elf Alchemist 2 (HP 13 | AC 16 | T 13 | FF 13 | CMD 15 | F +3 | R +6 | W -1| Init +5 | Per +6 )

Do we need to list food, standard ammunition, etc?


Primordial Ooze

The 200gp version is a big kit, I think there is a 75gp compact version as well that may save some cash. No need for fine detail - just list the kit, it's assumed you've a inexhaustible quantity of little flasks and such for bombs / extracts.
There is a Pathfinder kit for 12gp that is in one of the supplement books. It has the basics like bedroll, backpack, twine, chalk, etc. I'll throw up details later for you.

Can I specify an archetype now? I would like to take Grenadier.
Sure - no problems.

Can I change a trait? I'm not sure that perform ability will be useful, I have a poor charisma and no class skill in it.
Again - no issues.

Am I allowed to prepare multiples of one extract?
Yep. If you wanted you could fill all your slots with just one type of extract.


Primordial Ooze

No need to track food or basic ammo - my emphasis here will be on fun and not book-keeping.

Pathfinder’s Kit: This kit consists of a backpack, a bedroll, a belt pouch, a clay mug, a dagger, 2 fishhooks, flint and steel, a sewing needle, a signal whistle, 50 feet of string, 50 feet of thread, a waterskin, a week’s worth of trail rations, and a whetstone. - 12gp


Init +3 Perception +7 21/21 HP

Have put the working out in the profile - if all is good then I can format it more neatly.

Figure Kalum'll take the last name "Navigator" if he gets accepted.

Given Kiren is so good at knowledge nature already, should I move some of Kalum's bonuses into knowledge Geography or something?

Updated Militia Veteran trait bonus from Ride to Survival and updated skills section accordingly. Just so ya know.

@Kalum, that sounds good to me. Who knows what we'll need, but variety can't hurt!

Voices description is pretty spot on, Factotums use their book knowledge to make split second plans that give them their Int modifier as a bonus to attack rolls, damage rolls, skill checks, and the ability to fudge as though they can cast spells and such.

Arcane dilettante is strictly arcane spells, he gains the ability to spend an inspiration point and cast an arcane spell as a spell like ability. My previous DMs would limit it to any level 0 spell, and spells that the character had actually seen performed before or seen in a spell book so that I couldn't just flip through the players guide and pick any spell. Currently he is limited to 1, 0 level spell and he has to prepare it at the beginning of the day like a wizard. He can only cast said spell when he spends a inspiration point to do so.


Elf Alchemist 2 (HP 13 | AC 16 | T 13 | FF 13 | CMD 15 | F +3 | R +6 | W -1| Init +5 | Per +6 )

OK, I think my sheet is pretty much finished except for some of the gear, and I'm down to 3 possible traits. GM, are you OK with the Good Dreams trait from Desna, seems like it might be a little extra work for you.


Primordial Ooze

Excellent - we are all assembled, and I've kicked off the game thread.

Please go ahead and get to posting while I do your crunch reviews.

Kiren - you can take Good Dreams, but you'll likely need to give me prompts occasionally to make sure that I follow up from my side.

Icarus - as long as it's nominated at the start of the day, I'm happy for there to not be any restrictions beyond that for the spell.


Init +3 Perception +7 21/21 HP

DM: should Kalum go geography over nature?
Cheers


Primordial Ooze

That's your choice to make Kalum


Elf Alchemist 2 (HP 13 | AC 16 | T 13 | FF 13 | CMD 15 | F +3 | R +6 | W -1| Init +5 | Per +6 )

OK, I will take Good Dreams and Accelerated Drinker, as much as I like the initiative bonus.

Kalum, spreading out our skills seems beneficial. Wouldn't hurt to put that skill focus in geography.
BTW, can you make holy water? Might be useful since I am a splash weapon expert.


Init +3 Perception +7 21/21 HP

okay - changed :)

Kalum should be okay to make holy water, but will be in awe that someone would spend that much silver on one thing.


Primordial Ooze

Kiren - apologies, I missed that you hadn't posted yet - but the main thread is live and off and running. Time to get over there and get engaging :)


Elf Alchemist 2 (HP 13 | AC 16 | T 13 | FF 13 | CMD 15 | F +3 | R +6 | W -1| Init +5 | Per +6 )

I wondered where everyone went.


Elf Alchemist 2 (HP 13 | AC 16 | T 13 | FF 13 | CMD 15 | F +3 | R +6 | W -1| Init +5 | Per +6 )

I'm doing some research on Golarion elves (bought the book) so I can come up with a more complete background and figure out how to play this guy appropriately.


Primordial Ooze

Just remember Kiren - the book essentially presents the stereotype, so it's up to you whether to play to it or against it.


Kiren - a warning against accelerated drinker trait is that it doesn't apply to alchemists' extracts, only potions: source. I'm playing an alchemist myself in another game and I stumbled upon this too.


Elf Alchemist 2 (HP 13 | AC 16 | T 13 | FF 13 | CMD 15 | F +3 | R +6 | W -1| Init +5 | Per +6 )

OK Voice, I guess I'll play up the idea that he is curious and wants to explore the world.

Otis, good to know. That's a lot less useful then. Voice, can I change it back to the +2 initiative?


Primordial Ooze

Sure - change away Kiren.


Male Human Factotum Lvl 4; Hp15/28, Perception4 Int2, Fort2 Ref5 Will4, AC16 T12 F13,

I think I want to play my guy as a little bit cracked, not quite mad hatter mad but somewhere close. Very intelligent in what he knows but also very unpredictable, years of pretending to be people that he is not has fractured his mind a bit and would play well into him possibly getting Chameleon as a Prestige class later. I don't plan on doing anything too outrageous, and would like to lower his Wis by a bit to reflect this, boosting another stat with the extra points. Just wanted to make sure this wouldn't be a problem.


Elf Alchemist 2 (HP 13 | AC 16 | T 13 | FF 13 | CMD 15 | F +3 | R +6 | W -1| Init +5 | Per +6 )

Kalum, what's up with your deity being neutral evil and you being chaotic good? How does that work?


Init +3 Perception +7 21/21 HP

Wake of the Watcher had Yog Sothoth as CN.
Huh, so does here but it has the cleric alignments wrong. Unless you can be a lawful cleric of a god of chaos!


Primordial Ooze

Just a note - had today off work and hence the lackage of posts. Weekends being weekends with chidlets makes it hard to get a decent post in also. It will improve over time, but at present my evenings are curtailed with the amusement of one that does not sleep much.

So apologies, update will be incoming as soon as able - but might not be until later this weekend.


Elf Alchemist 2 (HP 13 | AC 16 | T 13 | FF 13 | CMD 15 | F +3 | R +6 | W -1| Init +5 | Per +6 )

OK, I was looking at the cleric alignment chart and didn't notice the CN text. I guess Kiren can sleep a little easier now.

No problem, Voice. I have two boys and they keep me busy. Luckily I can peek in at work from time to time.

My wife took our two kids on a three week vacation to her parents house a few states away. After about three days she has decided this vacation is also my Fathers Day gift. :) I can't disagree and it's probably the most expensive fathers day gift, possibly gift of any sort, that I've ever received. She must really love me ;). I've played more table top games in the last week than I have in the last six months. Too bad I love my family cause then I wouldn't even have to miss them! ;)

Just re-asking my question from earlier, I think it was missed in the shuffle of the weekend


Primordial Ooze

Nope no problem with the reshuffle


Init +3 Perception +7 21/21 HP

Otis: it was an impossible shot, right? right? Back me up here buddy...


Pretty much. Well I estimate the chance to hit was about 1/4, and it will stay about the same once the wolves enter melee. Otis is not good at combat :(


Kalum's not ready to fight yet. This first combat is going to teach him some important lessons, I think.


Init +3 Perception +7 21/21 HP

Sorry if this last post was too humorous... I figure Kalum hasn't seen a lot of horses in a majority halfling village, and the stress of combat and all...

Hey guys - sorry to be a pain (and sorry about the roll!) but in a few hours I'm headed off for the weekend. I might have internet access, might not. Either way should be back in 48 hours.

Should it become necessary to bot me, do so.

Odds are I might be able to follow this on my phone, but I can't post.


Primordial Ooze

No problems Kalum - enjoy the trip :)
