Male Dwarf Cleric 6

"I hate these blasted tings!"


Current: alias: Pai

"Your not the only one."


CotCT GameMaestro

Nik'o's non-surprise round action.


Current: alias: Pai

Re-dotting


Nik'o is perfectly happy to repeat the same strategy for now. She extends jer fingers and three bolts of darkness fly in an arc, landing in its chest.

Magic Missile: 3d4 + 3 ⇒ (1, 2, 2) + 3 = 8


CotCT GameMaestro

Nik'o extends her fingers and three bolts of darkness fly in an arc, landing in its chest. The vampire staggers forward, then dissipates into mist. You watch the mist slither into the cellar and into a coffin.


Current: alias: Pai

"Let's get staking these, blood suckers"


"I always heard vampires are dangerous creatures. These don't seem so tough. Are we sure they're vampires?"


Male Human Fighter- L6 | AC26 (T12FF26) CMD27 | hp 61/64 | Saves: F9 R5 W5 | Percep +0

Sgt. Drakus breathes carefully away from the trap door, then wraps a handkerchief around his nose and mouth. Grimly he takes up his shield and weapons and approaches the trapdoor.


CotCT GameMaestro

yeah, vampires with NPC classes aren't so tough...


Male Dwarf Cleric 6

"Yer fer burnin tha bodies this time I hope."


Still upstairs and struggling with the infect smell, Nik'o warns: "Burning is fine, but I'm not sure how the fire will spread. I don't know much about these things, but everyone in Korvosa remembers Sedathiel's unlucky fireball... Idiot almost burned half a district and killed many."


Current: alias: Pai

What time of day is it?


CotCT GameMaestro

It's still night time. Sorry, super busy, prepping for Halloween, the DCCRPG mystery map contest, sick kids and doctor's visits. Will update after Halloween.


CotCT GameMaestro

OK I have to face it, I'm not able to keep this game up as fast as it should be running. As I said before this is a great adventure in person, but it really bogged down in PbP. I need your feedback as to whether you want to continue at a slow pace, or if someone wants to step-up and take over. I have too many irons in the fire to keep up a fast game, when I started my new job in April, I didn't realize how much the 8-6 Monday - Thursday would drag me down, especially since at my old job, I had the luxury of watching the thread all day long, and at this job, I can only check at 10, lunch and 3. When I get home, it's eat, chill, help kids with homework, then relax before starting it again...I sincerely apologize for the grind this has become, and thank you all for sticking with it.


No worries on my side. I find the pace difficult on motivation. I unfortunately could not take over without messing up my participation in a number of other threads. I'm ok for slow, but I'm also ok with stopping if we feel it's for the best.


Male Human Fighter- L6 | AC26 (T12FF26) CMD27 | hp 61/64 | Saves: F9 R5 W5 | Percep +0

A slow pace is unavoidable for any GM with a regular job, family and other interests. Let's keep a'goin'.


Current: alias: Pai

I agree with Sgt. Drakus.


CotCT GameMaestro

Alrighty then, I'm game, I just wanted to make sure I laid the cards out on the table.

What means are you dealing with the coffins/vampires?


Male Human Fighter- L6 | AC26 (T12FF26) CMD27 | hp 61/64 | Saves: F9 R5 W5 | Percep +0

Boot the coffin open, cut the head off. Simple.


Current: alias: Pai

And stake it with a broken off chair leg.


Male Dwarf Cleric 6

"And then burn it all"

Pace is fine, you should see some of my dungeon crawls via pbp. ;)


Human Inquisitor of Iomedae 6

"Then let it be done. We should arrange for those crow faced jackals to come around and clean up this mess as well. Those corpses need to meet a pyre."

I do my best, but sometimes it's rough. Especially with trying to design my own OGL game now also. Basically my own house-rule system.


That's a big project!

Nik'o asks: "Anyway I can help? I'm not very knowledgeable of those things. Fire sounds good, as long as we can control it."

She keeps an eye on their surroundings if not needed.

Perception: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7


Male Dwarf Cleric 6

Are you familiar with Kirth finder?

Soaks the decapitated bodies in oil and ignites them....


Current: alias: Pai

"Well this fire might attract some other officials."

I'm building my own RPG system from scratch, and am still working on the mechanics.


CotCT GameMaestro

Working on a system from scratch is a huge project, converting OGL is noisome, but at least I have the SRD/PFSRD to work from. The big thing is figuring out how to write my mechanics in a logical and coherent style. I'm really liking how it feels, but it will have to go thru massive playtesting. Take OGL, and throw away d20s, and the concept of iterative attacks, remove feat taxes for combat maneuvers, and add in the ability to attempt any non-supernatural feat (albeit at a penalty). And that's the concept.

What's Kirth Finder?

The fire builds but luckily doesn't spread to the buildings, due to the heavy fog, the stench attracts a group of guardsmen.

"Oi, whut be going on 'ere?"


Current: alias: Pai

with a serious face and tone
"We are burning an infection vector of the plague."

But by building it from scratch I can incorporate some more balanced systems and concepts, and make EVERY choice at character creation matter for the whole game.


"it's all under control." Nik'o sYs with a neutral tone, trying to mimic the postures and attitudes she's recently seen.

Diplomacy: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (17) + 12 = 29


Male Dwarf Cleric 6

Kirthfinder is Kirth Gersens rule set somehow TriOmegaZero TOZ on the message boards is also involved. The rules are Link

"Yep tha should does it!"


Male Human Fighter- L6 | AC26 (T12FF26) CMD27 | hp 61/64 | Saves: F9 R5 W5 | Percep +0

Sgt. Drakus tries to waive the newcomers off.
"Whoa! Stop there! Seargent Drakus, Centurion of Legio XV, City Guard. We're burning some disease sources here and I ain't sure we got them all."
Intimidate: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (2) + 8 = 10


Male Dwarf Cleric 6

"This is above yer pay grade, we got orders tah make sure tha city is safe, unless yah want tah face vamps yer selves, yer jobs err keepin tha commoners in line, wer fer killin tha critters tha likes o you prays yah never even sees...this is clos tah seein a vamp yer ever goin want tah be. Iffen yah gots objections takes it up wit field marshal Croft. Or yah ken go wit us tah sees her yerself, shes gonna want tah hear bout this first ting."


Male Half-elf Urban Ranger 1/Bard 5 (AC: 21 [T: 13 /FF: 19]; HP: 39/47; F+5, R+9, W+5; Init: +4; Perc: +11 [Low-light vision])

Gregor watches, concern heavy on his features as he lets a building just burn in the middle of the city. His weariness hangs off him like a cloak, the pallor of his skin showing how much of a toll the touch of the creatures truly took on him. He doesn't flinch from staying focused on the blaze, comfortable that Nik'o and Drakus are handling it. He cringes though as the dwarf speaks up. Really? Above your pay grade, spreading talk of vampires, take it up with Croft? Maybe he doesn't realize that the lot of them are more like mercs in the guard's employ, than they are actual guards. Or maybe it is just the typical dwarven drunkeness clouding his reasoning.

Sorry, lost this game in the updates, then had a hard time getting back into the mojo of posting to my PbP's.
Not that it matters, but Gregor would have put up serious protest to just burning down a house in the city. What's done is done, though, so oh well.


CotCT GameMaestro

Gregor, luckily it's not a house, but an abandoned business, the owner died some time ago. It's filled with creepy dolls. No problem with losing it in the updates, I know Paizo had an issue and I was lagging behind.

"Oi, Sahgint Drokis, no need t'git up in arms abaht it, Oi wuz just won'drin waht 'appened? Waht's dis stubby dorf talk'n 'boat tho. Oi Sahgint Ward, you're 'ere too? Here' 'ave some o me watuh, you be look'n rough."

True, by working from scratch you can incorporate everything you want, it's just a huge undertaking. I'll check out Kirth's rules sometime also.


Male Human Fighter- L6 | AC26 (T12FF26) CMD27 | hp 61/64 | Saves: F9 R5 W5 | Percep +0

Sgt. Drakus waives off the thought of insult.
"No, no. Sorry about snappin' at ye; we ran into some Hellknights earlier. You know how they like ta interrogate everyone, and we're *bleep*ing city guards! Them foreign troops got no respect I tell ya...
"Anyway, Father Donagar's all right.
"Hey Donagar!"
Drakus motions towards the proffered water.
"Can ye do that water-to-beer trick again? That could go down sweet after a day like we had..."

Trying to diplomatic here, but am way better at intimidation.
Diplomacy: 2d10 + 1 ⇒ (8, 4) + 1 = 13
I call situational bonus! ((city guard vs uppity foreigners)+(city guard + beer))


Male Dwarf Cleric 6

Donagar offers beers and cheers to all....

"Aye tis dust o tha crackin o dry bones thas got yah parched."


CotCT GameMaestro

"We be on duty Sarg, but, if you be giv'n this cor'pril and his troops leave t'ave one beer, I'd be thankful as Erastil in a field. 'Owever les 'ead o'er there, away frum th'stench o them corpses."

After the long evening of vampires, corpses, death and disease, a beer and 15 minutes of rest really let you know how tired your are.


Male Dwarf Cleric 6

"Were fer taken a break surenly....

"Could vampires bites be a spreadin tha disease as well?"


Human Inquisitor of Iomedae 6

"We'll research that as soon as we can."


Nik'o follows along, asking instead for a dark ruby wine from Westcrown. As she spins the crimson liquid, thinking of blood and Korvosa's throne, she ponders the day's events. "Looks like they did. They didn't strike me as great thinkers or plotters. It seems they're just no better than rats. Vehicles, but not the source we were looking for. How should we go about looking further into this? I miss the King now..."


CotCT GameMaestro

Happy Thanksgiving to all

The rest of the night seems to slip away, as the troubles of the city are forgotten for a short time. Something to be Thankful for.


Human Inquisitor of Iomedae 6

"Agreed, I miss him as well, the city has gone to hell since his death, as a bad omen. May Iomedae punish those responsible. May we be the instrument of that punishment. It feels as if we're drawn toward higher purpose, we 'heroes' of Varisia."

Marra absent-mindedly draws out the Harrow deck.


Current: alias: Pai

"True, the King did a bit better at choosing what got financed and how much, that and the lower taxes on imported alcohol."

"And Thank you Sergeant for choosing my family's bar for the drinks."


Human Inquisitor of Iomedae 6

"Not much of a choice, all the other bars are closed, you let us in...besides it's like 3 bells after the mid-watch."


Current: alias: Pai

"Just a reminder that anyone who ordered BlackJack to be ready for one heck of a hangover."


Male Dwarf Cleric 6

"Hang-overs is fer amatuers, yah gets a professional on tha job an yah ken get it done. Iffen any bad guys come while Im out yah jus roll me right over em!"

"Make mine a double!"


Human Inquisitor of Iomedae 6

"A double Donagar? That's a bit light isn't it?"


Male Dwarf Cleric 6

"Doubles fer tha first round, an a couple o pitchers o beer!"


CotCT GameMaestro

Just before you're about to depart the tavern, a rapping on the door startles you all as cheers and laughter erupt outside. "Open up the Ratcatchers have executed a wererat! It's time to celebrate."


Male Dwarf Cleric 6

"Thas tha name o an all-lustrious group iffen I ever heard o one! Make way fer tha rat cat-chers!"
