Created a discussion thread for us.


Male Aasimar (Raised by Halflings) Barbarian 1 / Lame Oracle of Life 6

So, I was looking for a summon that I could communicate with; and I finally figured out that since we all know Aquan, I could talk to water elementals. (I wish I could say that I planned it that way on purpose, but no.) The question is, could it be something where somehow the same one keeps answering the call, so we actually have a relationship?

What I'm thinking is that sometimes -- when he has plenty of magic left to use, right before bedtime -- Tudan will summon Pluck the small water elemental, just to ask him how his day was. Kind of like a pet that you could talk to, and could only see for less than a minute at a time.

Lovely idea. Make it so!

Hey guys, just wanted to apologize for not posting all weekend. It was my daughters first birthday and we've got family in town and everything so it was butt hectic.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Congratulations :) Sounds like a pretty busy time.

I have an apology too - I'm going on a three day hike through the mountains from tomorrow. I'll try to post tomorrow morning before I go, but may not manage it.


How was your hike? I've never done anything like that myself.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

It was amazing. We were driven to the start of the route, and then picked up three days later and 40 kilometers away. The track went through forests and up valleys, beside lakes and into high mountain passes that later in the year will be impassible with snow.

We walked for about 7 hours each day, and took about 400 photos. Because it was our first time hiking multi-day in alpine terrain, we paid to have guides and to have access to overnight lodges. Next time we'll go more basic and carry our own food.

Very special experience!


Sounds like! And this is something that you want to do again, with even less support? It's hard for me to imagine, as more of a homebody.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Hey everyone, quick heads up that my travels have taken me to a part of NZ with very very spotty cell phone and internet provision. I've just driven 60 kilometers to find a town where I can get a signal. We're staying long enough to have a coffee and answer some urgent emails, then it's back to the dark ages.

I should be back in a couple of days time - or heck maybe the lodge we stay in tonight will have wifi - but basically expect nothing from me for a day or two.

Sorry that this is going so lumpy, I'm enjoying all of your characters.


No worries. I have plenty to do with Mass Effect 3!


Male Aasimar (Raised by Halflings) Barbarian 1 / Lame Oracle of Life 6

As long as we keep on coming back to it when we can, eventually we'll get done. I'm confident enough that I've been working on Tudan's build.

If you're curious:
Oracle has a dead level at 9th -- which would normally be okay due to receiving a feat, except that Tudan's level of barbarian means that he'd be character level 10th. So, I was looking around for something to dip into (preferably full BAB). Maybe another level of barbarian to never be flat-footed, or one in fighter for a feat.

Ranger fits his flavor and would add some more class skills, while the trapper archetype (from UM) would allow him to disarm magic traps. Since I made a shield build, holy vindicator would grant the ability to channel energy for a +5 sacred bonus to AC (until hit) that would scale with level / 2.

Lots of options!

Interesting ... but we gotta get there first ... it may take some time

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Yay, civilization again! Post coming tomorrow.


Male Aasimar (Raised by Halflings) Barbarian 1 / Lame Oracle of Life 6

Thank goodness!


Male Aasimar (Raised by Halflings) Barbarian 1 / Lame Oracle of Life 6

@ our illustrious GM: Could you mark the RPGSS 2012 Playtest as inactive? Then I could hide it on my campaign tracker. ;)

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

I'll see what I can do ;)


Male Aasimar (Raised by Halflings) Barbarian 1 / Lame Oracle of Life 6

What does Elyin look like, and what was his role in the group? I don't even know his race and class. I also don't know what Kailah looks like; I've been imagining a fit country lass -- young and pretty, but not sophisticated -- and I have no idea how accurate that is.

Wild speculation:
I'm picturing Elyin as a human or half-elf urban ranger. We have a face and three casters -- but no full BAB characters, no skill monkeys, and no one with Knowledge (local) or Disable Device. If he has more than three ranger levels, then this implies that Elyin delayed his Favored Community, and put off forming a bond until whatever level he left our group and found Bellis; he just hadn't been anywhere yet that rang his bell. It would also help explain why he didn't come back to us.

If he's a half-elf over 3rd level, then maybe he multiclassed as a fighter, and just didn't reach ranger 3 until later. Either way, I bet that he had the Archery ranger combat style... since without him, the closest thing we have to a ranged specialist is the healer. ;)

Sorry guys - hit another patch of no-cell-coverage.


Male Aasimar (Raised by Halflings) Barbarian 1 / Lame Oracle of Life 6

Suggestion: in my experience, PbP combat goes smoother if the GM rolls initiative for everyone. Otherwise, even if everyone posts every day (and remembers to roll), it can take an extra day just to figure out what order everyone is in.


Male Undine Monk 7 HPs:42/42, AC 20, (T19, FF16) CMD: 25 (27 grapple)

I'm good with Tudan's suggestion.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Hi guys, I drove into an unexpected cell-phone black spot the last few days. Tonight I'm heading into the bush overnight (first time carrying all my own food), and then tomorrow I have a pitch for Open Design to submit.

Back for real on Thursday. Sorry about the lack of notice.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Also, yes, happy to roll init for all next combat.

I suspose I should've broken down the mechanics of Sharadon before I went hurling magical spells of doom. I do feel a bit shamed that I could've saved so much trouble by using the rod, which is now going to be the first thing he retrieves once combat ensues!

Anyway, Tudan broke me down like a pro methinks. I art capable of 9d6+2 fireballs thanks to my combination of spell specialization, magical knack, and envoker specializing. In addition to that, I'm capable of spontaneously casting Scorching Ray's if the need arises (and I feel like devouring a 2-3rd level slot for the effort). Just to get that out there before I go doin' it.

But I did not know that you normally only pulled one trait from one type of background. I'll go about fixing that little issue-ma-bob.

Sorry for scarin' ya tho Surveen! That roll kinda suprised me too...

Thanks! I'm just your friendly neighborhood rules lawyer who likes to figure things out and answer questions. 8)

Meh, if the GM doesn't care, then don't worry about it. And I've never known a GM to be shy about saying when he wants something changed. ;)

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Yep, two magical traits is not a game breaker, full steam ahead :)

Spell specialization is pretty neat and I'll keep it in mind for my next spellslinger.

It's Murphy's Law .. next time against the big baddie just watch those 1s and 2s roll out ... save all your 5s and 6s for friends .. .LOL!!

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Hey guys, heads up.

I'm flying tonight to LA, spending a couple of days with friends there and then on to Seattle for PaizoCon. I don't know what access I'll have to the internet for about the next 10 days, and there will be lots of travel time. My posts may be even more sporadic than normal for the next 10 days until about the 12th July, which is when I arrive in the UK and get to my parent's house.

Cheers!


Male Aasimar (Raised by Halflings) Barbarian 1 / Lame Oracle of Life 6

Thanks for the heads up! We'll just keep on going, then, as best we can. As usual. :)

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Right, done with PaizoCon and had an absolute blast. I'm now in the lounge at LAX ready to head to London. So by tomorrow night I'll be settled in one place for a few weeks and able to post again. Yay :)

Thank you all for your patience :)


Male Undine Monk 7 HPs:42/42, AC 20, (T19, FF16) CMD: 25 (27 grapple)

Nice to have you over to our part of the world. Hope you enjoy the capital, if you come south from the big smoke, (not that its smokey) and make it to the sea, let me know and maybe have a pint of beer.


Male Undine Monk 7 HPs:42/42, AC 20, (T19, FF16) CMD: 25 (27 grapple)

Just to let you know I'll be at PaizoConUK next weekend 20th-23rd-ish and therefore won't be posting. And again from 2nd Aug to 5th Aug at the local Music Festival, so feel free to GM bot for those periods so as not to slow anything down.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Have fun at PCUK - I'd love to attend but I'm going to a friend's wedding instead. I'll GM-bot as soon as I get my GM-pants back on...


Male Aasimar (Raised by Halflings) Barbarian 1 / Lame Oracle of Life 6

Do we have an ETA for those pants? Because I think that this game is awesome, and I'd love to play it some more. :)

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Check the gameplay thread :D


Male Aasimar (Raised by Halflings) Barbarian 1 / Lame Oracle of Life 6

Weird... Campaign tracker wasn't showing any new posts. Anyway, I'll get caught up now!

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Yeah I think things drop off after a while. Vic probably knows why...

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

I'm away for the weekend. Back Sunday night or Monday.


Male Aasimar (Raised by Halflings) Barbarian 1 / Lame Oracle of Life 6

Yeah, dropped off my tracker again. Only knew because of RSS, so I'll PM everyone.


ThunderingDawn still hasn't replied to my PM -- and I'm talking about one that I sent a month ago. I don't suppose anyone can email him?


Male Undine Monk 7 HPs:42/42, AC 20, (T19, FF16) CMD: 25 (27 grapple)

I'm moving this to my old games folder, rather than my active games folder. It seems well and truly dead.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Yes, I think we're agreed that it's over. Sorry, as GM the largest share of the responsibility for that is mine, and I've PMd you to talk about why.

Game over man, game over.


As I said in PM, it was fun while it lasted. Thank you for your excellent writing and all that you did for the game, and I wish you all the best! :)
