Nimwi, I was just reminded that you can get a familiar this level. (The monkey comment makes more sense now. :)
What kind of critter were you thinking of?


Aasimir Oracle in, welcome to Daniel Vesper. :)


@Daniel

Spoiler:
If this is alright with you, I had an idea why you are in the pirate ship's hold. You were once again caught with a visiting merchants fair young daughter. What you didn't know was that the merchant had many illegal dealings with pirates and smugglers and that after having his bodyguard subdue, he shipped you off to one of his pirate business partners with orders that you be sold as a slave. Preferably to someone who would make a Eunuch out of you. It is while you are in the hold of the pirate ship you have heard much fighting going on and now the door to the hold is being kicked in.


Perfect, that's pretty much what I was picturing.

I can choose between monkey and parrot. Does the monkey comment make even more sense now?


Yes, but now I fear that if your familiar ever misbehaves I will have to listen to spanking your monkey jokes...


Male Elf (Mordant Spire) Bard (Sea Singer)/1

You know what would make it especially appropriate? If it was an undead zoombie* monkey.

*zombie with the fast template


That may come up later.....


Concerning the bleeding out "metagaming": There are only three active characters at the moment. One of them has been trying to stabilize Nimwi every round since the fight ended. Another tried once, realized he had no reasonable chance to help, and moved on. And the other already knew he had no chance to help (and said so) and moved on. As far as the characters are aware, given we have no magical healing and zero Heal skill or Wisdom bonus amongst us, Nimwi has a better chance of stabilizing on his own than we have of helping him. As far as I can tell, everyone's actions have been appropriate to the situation.

And yes, people will read behind the spoilers. I'm actually unclear why anyone thinks people won't on a messageboard. Partly because people tend to put things behind spoilers that actually shouldn't be there. In this case, it should actually be obvious when someone stabilizes. You no longer need to do a Heal check to figure that out.

I play in several games on these boards where spoilers are used extensively. My fellow players in those games do not read other people's spoilers. It is a matter of respect and trust. We like to keep up the suspense. Besides, not having knowledge of another character's actions leaves open the opportunity for expanded role play between party members when one character shares what they know with other characters.

Let's drop the niceties and call it what it is; cheating. I think people do not read spoilers because they do not like to cheat, themselves or others, of a good time. As for what is placed behind a spoiler, it is at the DM discretion to decide if it is appropriate or if it should be shared with others. It is not up to the individual players to decide what they, and their character, should know.

I don't like to cheat. It ruins the fun for me. Unfortunately, the reverse is also true. You cheating ruins the fun for me, too. As it is my fun that is ruined while your fun is apparently intact, I will bow out.

DM WaterSprite, thank you for the opportunity to play in your imagination. I think you are doing a great job. I wish you much success with your campaign. To all the rest, have fun!


male undine swashbuckler rogue/aquatic sorceror 1/1

Whoa, I guess I'm late to this party. That'll teach me not to read the OOC thread regularly.

FWIW, I haven't been reading the spoilers. I just thought Patch had one chance to heal Nimwi and blew it (also why I asked about taking 10 or 20, which was never really answered). Also, Patch isn't too fond of Nimwi after his supposed "insult."

I think quitting the game over people who might be reading the spoilers is a bit of an overreaction, but okay, if it wrecks your fun that much... It was fun gaming with you.

Now to level up. Woohoo!

Rogue hps: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (8) + 1 = 9


First, Hoga, if you missed it you are second level now. You may either roll for hp or take the average of your hit die plus one.

Second, since this is my first time gm'ing a play by post game I'm a little unsure the proper procedure for dealing with character that quits. I am thinking doing a script rewrite and having the arrow and the fall kill Nimwi. Everyone may have still attempted a heal check and Daniel may have still attempted to heal him. It would all just been to no avail. Does this sound reasonable to everyone?

Also, I am fine with continueing on with five players now since at least one of you is actually a healer. :)


M half orc Adept 3

Missed that, somehow. I'll take the average, with a level of rogue. FWIW, never looked at spoilers, and enjoying the game very much. I'll have Hoga all updated tomorrow.

Sounds reasonable to me. I too think you're doing a great job. :)

Updated. Hoga's got da mad skillz now, yo!


male undine swashbuckler rogue/aquatic sorceror 1/1

Just wanted to say I won't be able to post much, if at all, on Monday, Wednesday or Thursday next week.


Someone should really take over handling loot distribution before it starts taking a week every time we find something. I assume Hoga, the non-talking Sylph and the goblin aren't going to, so that leaves Patch. We can still discuss the details of who gets what, but I'd suggest some handle the big stuff so we don't take fifteen posts just to hand out a couple of potions.

And once we get used to Daniel, he might be able to take over if he wants to.


I'd be willing to help with that once I'm established with the group.

That's a deal. I'll try and keep a list updated either here or on my character page, depending on if DMWaterSprite doesn't want me clogging up this thread with updates. DM, will we have a chance to sell some of the stuff we got off the pirates and sahuagin?

Also, around the middle of next week I'll be heading into an area with spotty internet coverage, so I might not be able to post for two or three days. I hope not, but just in case, I wanted to warn you.


You are at a port for pirates and smugglers. You can pretty much buy and/or sell anything that you want.

It is entirely up to the group how much time you want to spend there. Though the longer you wait the greater the chance that the girl will be moved off and you will have to hunt her down again.


male undine swashbuckler rogue/aquatic sorceror 1/1

OK, it looks like I'll be gone from around noon tomorrow until Friday, unless I can get a signal out in the boonies. Patch will help out in whatever capacity he can 'til then, and use the signet ring and bejeweled rapier as part of their disguises (unless anyone thinks that's a bad idea). Let's sell some stuff for bribe cash, too.

I'll be out of town most of Saturday and Sunday working for my fiance on a paleontological dig, will post as I can.


Female

That is cool enough that you will be forgiven for a lack of posting.

Gracias. :D

I'll be helping dig up crocodile fossils.


male undine swashbuckler rogue/aquatic sorceror 1/1

Man, my reason for not posting tomorrow sounds lame now! "Crocodile fossils" beats "having company over" by so many orders of magnitude that it's sad.

But anyway, I probably won't post much tomorrow due to said company. Nyah. :P

Patch is all for tossing the slavers overboard anyway.

Also, I might as well update the loot list:

Looks like everything to me. Are you an accountant irl? :)

Haha, I should be so good at math! I know one I play with IRL and he's always mocking my lousy math skills. :P

After the slavers are gone we all get healed, right?

Looks good to me.


I suggest splitting gold evenly and splitting useful loot separately (and just trying to keep it relatively even). But I'm open to a more strict loot distribution if people want.

You can probably just track who took what in gp terms if you want to save room. And I'd completely ignore potions, as those are never worth selling and will probably just be given to whoever will need them.


On the note of magic gear, if anyone actually wants this ring of fire resistance, they are more than welcome to it. While I certainly like playing with fire, I don't think I'm especially likely to actually take fire damage more than anyone else =P

The gold amounts are the split benefit from all of the sold goods I assume?

Yes, and including the Chelish gold we got on the wreck, minus the 100 Hoga used to get some thieves' tools.

Gotcha. In the future we should probably split gold first and then let anyone make whatever purchases they want from their personal share rather than purchases first and then splitting.


Yeah, I'm fine with buying CLW wands as a group, but other purchases for personal gear should probably come out of people's shares.


Heading to Fargo at 0630 CST Saturday to play a Warmachine tournament, will return ~2300 CST Saturday.
