Game Master cynarion

Professor Lorrimor, the renowned investigator and arcanist, has died. You came to his home in the town of Ravengro to pay your respects, but quickly discovered there was more to the wily old man's death than met the eye...

You know, it did occur to me while I was cleaning the stove this morning that the whole splash damage vs. swarms thing is already taken into account by the +50% damage they take from splash weapons.

But meh...I hate swarms too. ; )


Male Human (Varisian) Alchemist (Preservationist) 2

I've been DMing Lem's alchemist for over a year and don't have great rules retention on it, so I'm happy to ride along here!


Maybe I've been DMing too long... I love all the PITA creatures like swarms, constructs, etc. even when they make my life hell. :)


I had an 8th-level magus forced to flee from a CR3 swarm once. The only AoE spell she had was flaming sphere, and all her enlarged, bull's strengthed damage counted for nothing. Against 'normal' NPCs, she was regularly doing 40-50 damage per round, but against a swarm she just had to turn tail and flee.

Swarms became enemy #1 for me after that point. ; )

We're gonna have to get Septimus making more alchemist fire etc

Agreed. I recommend we invest in some leg irons to make sure he can't escape his alchemy lab until we have 'enough'.

I also plan to take Burning Hands as a spell next level (unless Karrik already has it).

IIRC, Kendra has it in her spellbook. She might let you copy it if she's not too pissed. ;-)

Hey folks, busy day, sorry. Should get to make another post tonight, if the kids behave when I get home. : )

While it's not in Karriks' spell-book, it is one of the spells I'd like to get there. With such limited access to spells at low levels (and a low casting DC in general), it made sense for Karrik to take other spells.

But this pretty much illuminates why every spell-caster should build in some AoE goodness to their spell capacity when they can. :)

Sorry for another AWOL weekend. It's just much easier for me to post from work lately. I have an almost-two-year-old, and my wife's about a month and a half (or so) away from delivering our second. My time on the weekends is spread pretty thin.

But it looks like y'all had the situation in hand... and Karrik looked dashing to boot! (A first for him.)


{HP9/19 | AC16 T12 FF14 CMD 16 | F/R/W 4/2/3} Female Samsaran Bladebound Magus 2

We might want to sit down after Harrowstone, compare spellbooks in character, and figure out what the other is researching for level 2. That way we can build off of each other. And of course see what we can learn from Kendra (as long as she doesn't want to do a live demonstration).


DAPPER HALF-ORC MAGUS

Good call. For reference, Karrik has (in his spell book) Color Spray (for non-lethal, in-town crowd control), Enlarge Person, Shield, Shocking Grasp, Vanish.


{HP9/19 | AC16 T12 FF14 CMD 16 | F/R/W 4/2/3} Female Samsaran Bladebound Magus 2

Enlarge Person, Shocking Grasp, Magic Missle, True Strike, Shield, Feather Fall for me.


DAPPER HALF-ORC MAGUS

Excellent. True Strike and Feather Fall were definitely on my 'wanted' list. It'll be good if Kendra does indeed have Burning Hands.


I plan to have Raj take a level in Wizard at L3... so I'm more than happy to contribute to the pot of spells in exchange for anything that will flesh out my spellbook... and many of the spells you guys have listed are ones I'll want for Raj.


{HP9/19 | AC16 T12 FF14 CMD 16 | F/R/W 4/2/3} Female Samsaran Bladebound Magus 2

mayhaps we should invest in an Inscription materials merchant. They'll be making a killing off of us.

Anything to impress the ladies hey Raj?

:D Bank on it! Gotta maintain his uber-stud image.

Actually, I just love spell-slinging characters and even a few low level spells are a tremendous boon to Rogues.

Wait until the next encounter when I can quip "It got into my rat swarm wounds!" afterwards.


Sick...
Sick...
SICK...

I LOVE IT!

I see we've taken a left-turn into Cthulu-land or Ravenloft. :)


You were already there...this is just that bowel-clenching moment when you realise it for yourselves. ; )

More posts later...I presume you still want to investigate the west balcony? Let me know how you plan on going about that. The stairs are perfectly sound.


I figure we'll just hit it in the standard fashion - Raj will take point. Before he sets foot on the balcony, he'll secure a line/grapnel to the sturdiest bit of stonework and keep one hand on the rope in case the roof gives way... then a preliminary inspection and a cautious creep (dagger in hand) towards whatever looks interesting (if anything does). Let me know what kind of rolls you'd like and I'll toss them up.

On second thought, I'll just throw some rolls up. Make use of them as needed.

Going to client site and can't get on forum for about 10 hrs - will post later


Male Human (Varisian) Inquisitor 2

I have a feeling that I just put Theron in a bad spot, lol. I think I'm going to be using my 1/day gain 4 hit points shortly XD

I can hear Raj now: "I just jumped from there, what made you think climbing up would be a good idea?!"

Hopefully one of the tanks will be able to come up after me XD


I actually considered having Raj jump down the rope only 5' but I wasn't sure I wanted to find out that the weapons would be delighted to hack at me while hanging on the rope.


mysterious male human purveyor of plot

If I have been reading your mind lately, Raj, so are you now reading mine. ; )


All EVIL DMs share a hive mind of vicious ideas. :)

I was thinking that if I were DMing it, I'd probably have the scythe strike at the DEX-less rogue and then the sword cut the rope for giggles.


Pretty much! Ah, it was a fun idea while it lasted.

In other news, tomorrow night I am heading back to my RL group via Skype for the first time in 9 months (following the birth of my 2nd daughter). They are playing Kingmaker and are just about to start Rivers Run Red.

I am playing a female aasimar druid. One of the PCs is a rather arrogant womanising cavalier that my PC isn't likely to get on well with. I'm thinking hold animal on his horse plus entangle once he pitches over the horse's head should be a worthwhile introduction. Anyone have any other ideas? : D


What level Druid?


4th. Focused on spellcasting, no animal companion, cloud subdomain, 15 point buy, 18 Wis.


Hmmm. Well, if you wanna go for non-harmful yet totally irritating fun... Get in good with the Cavalier's mount - using Wild Empathy, Handle Animal, Charm Animal, and/or Speak w/ Animal... and then hit your new pal with Reduce Animal.

That'll get the cavalier walking instead of riding for 4 hours and you can refer to his fierce destrier as "My Little Pony". :)


Brilliant. It will absolutely be worth a day of crappy memorisations. : D


If your DM is really nice, he might let you get away with it for Animal Empathy, Handle Animal, a couple of apples, and Reduce Animal. :)

Walter's back to 15+ rolls only. Watch out.


Go Walt GO!

FYI - I love the ballsy choice you made. Hopefully, we'll put it to good use.

My battle cry should have been 'I forgot to buy armor in toooown!'

Though 'Stop it!' ranks up there on the list of awful battle cries already...

My group has PCs do this all the time. Then they shout 'Save me!' to the other PCs even before their action is done. >>; ... Save me!!!


SPOON!

Assuming *touches wood* we get through this encounter we may hit level 2...

What are the rules for leveling?

So much evening posting! Can't a man stare at an intermittent Diablo 3 error screen all night without worrying his play-by-post group is going full throttle?

Hah XD Luckily I skipped the worst of the Diablo 3 downtime, and now I'm having a blast with the game. The monk is pure awesomeness.

Not quite--unless I throw another two of the same animated objects at you. Which I am happy to do, I already have a halberd lying in wait. ; )

As for rules, beyond the standard stuff in the books, the only house rule is that you may re-roll any hit dice that comes up a 1, once.

I appreciate, but don't require, a sensible grounding of new class features, feats, skill ranks etc. But the more you can show me the organic growth of your character, the more disposed I will be to throw him or her something new and exciting, like Raj's recently-gained 'facility' with prestidigitation.

...which Raj will be using presently to clean his shorts after fighting the occult equivalent of a giant Cuisinart. :p

I'd appreciate no more scythes please :)

Now a dagger. Unless it was lots of daggers. Like an Animated Dagger Swarm.

Okay keep the scythe.
