Discussion thread for the playtest.

Link to Gameplay Thread

Link to Campaign Information

First batch of encounters (All CR 7-9) are posted in the Campaign Info section.

Any suggestions on higher level encounters?

I know I would like to run even higher CR stuff, but I would like to see where the Mythic PCs are at before cranking the difficulty up too high.


Male Hafling Rogue(Swashbuckler) 5

Just pointing out that it would probably be best to stay flexible with regards to encounters, as we don't really know what we'll be capable of, once the Mythic Rules are added in

Sczarni

Male Cuddly L'il Fuzzy Hamster Psion (Telepath) 20

yeah totally.

I listed out a bunch for the 1st run through, just to give myself (and anyone following) an idea of what I was looking at.

That's why I put them in the campaign info area, rather than the actual gameplay thread.


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

Also, I do not think we'll the playtest today, as its Jason's first day back in the office following his trip to Italy.

Sczarni

Male Cuddly L'il Fuzzy Hamster Psion (Telepath) 20

sad am i

although it is only 1100 in Seattle time.

Perhaps this PM?


Female Elven Cleric

I do believe it was mentioned in a blog post somewhere that rules wouldn't hit until the 14th...only an extra day so not that big of a deal. As I said in the recruitment thread Lilly is all built she just needs to get updated and I need my laptop for that so it will be sometime tonight that I get her updated in word and then when I get online tomorrow(sometime between 10:30 and 1:30 CST) I will throw it up on the site.


Female Elven Cleric

Found the blog post I referenced. It can be found here


male human Barbarian 5th/Guardian and Champion Tier 2

Ug is ready , all I need is the Mythic stuff and i'm good to go

Sczarni

Male Cuddly L'il Fuzzy Hamster Psion (Telepath) 20

Man have I become bad with dates.

Made a check out this am for 11/12, thought the playtest dropped today.

Jeez.


male human Barbarian 5th/Guardian and Champion Tier 2

Don't Feel bad So did I


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

From Jason's FB page, about 40 minutes ago:

Is currently typing up the introduction blog post for the Mythic Adventures playtest. Just thought you might be interested in that little tidbit.

Sczarni

Male Cuddly L'il Fuzzy Hamster Psion (Telepath) 20

Saw the same thing.

Pretty excited.


Heeey. Glad to see I didn't miss it. My internet connection is unstable at the moment, no clue what's going on with my ISP, but hopefully it'll fix itself soon. Yelling at them didn't help because the people I yelled at didn't have a clue either.

Point of note, I run about Australian time (GMT +8 to be exact) so my time may be at odds with most of you. This won't be a problem during weekends since I'm naturally a night owl but weekdays can get troublesome.

I'll understand if you'll want to replace me if I get too inconvenient to the whole group. I do give full permission to bot my character and such.

In the meantime, eagerly awaiting the Mythic Rules!

P.S. May be fun to run an introductory encounter with the normal expected monsters for our level, just to see how badly we thrash them.

Sczarni

Male Cuddly L'il Fuzzy Hamster Psion (Telepath) 20

@Rashly: check out the campaign description page. The 5th level encounters are designed just like that, for now.


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

ITS LIVE!!!!

Female Elven Cleric

Hey guys got busy last night so wasn't able to get the updated profile done...will get it up tomorrow though I promise. And now that I have the playtest doc in hand I will throw together the mythic part of her as well.

Psionichamaster is there any specific ways you want us building the mythic part of our characters?


male human Barbarian 5th/Guardian and Champion Tier 2

Will download and update when I get home.


Male Hafling Rogue(Swashbuckler) 5

There's mythic magic items. Any chance we can start with one, either as a bonus to our normal gear, or bought via our starting wealth?


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

How many tiers are we going with? I do not see the half your level limitation, but I think we should still use it.

So 2 mythic tiers now, then 5 at 10, 7 at 15 and 10 at 20.

Sczarni

Male Cuddly L'il Fuzzy Hamster Psion (Telepath) 20

Yeah, let's do tier 2 for the 5th level pcs.

I have a feeling you are going to trounce the standard CR stuff I prepared.

Sczarni

Male Cuddly L'il Fuzzy Hamster Psion (Telepath) 20

Re: mythic items, let me finish reading the document, will let you know tonight or tomorrow.


Ooh, this looks like it's going to be fantastic.

@psionichamster Oh, whoop. Yeah, I see it now. I had a brain fart.


Male Hafling Rogue(Swashbuckler) 5

What are we doing for HP again?

Also,
I know this is mainly about combat, so should I avoid the skill path abilities? There's a fair amount of them for the Trickster however.


Female Tian-Shu Human Bard 5 / Marshal 2
Status:
HP 46/46 | AC 19/13/17, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3 | Init +26; Perception +7

HP is max at first level then average + 1 for succeeding levels if I recall correctly.

Campaign Information

Skills may play a role. I leave it to you if you prefer a more combat or skill-based PC.


male human Barbarian 5th/Guardian and Champion Tier 2

so can i take dual path as my mythic feat and gain Champion and Defender

Sczarni

Male Cuddly L'il Fuzzy Hamster Psion (Telepath) 20

So long as you meet the prerequisites, yes.


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

Hey, do you mind if I post my initial reactions here, so we can chat about them?

Sczarni

Male Cuddly L'il Fuzzy Hamster Psion (Telepath) 20

Have at it.

It will also help if everyone can post s text character sheet. Aliases are fun and all, but simple stat blocks make it easier to read & print.


Female Tian-Shu Human Bard 5 / Marshal 2
Status:
HP 46/46 | AC 19/13/17, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3 | Init +26; Perception +7

Oh man, I can take Leadership as a bonus feat and it has some nifty things added on too! Cohooooort! And followers!

That's some added crunching and complexity though, so I'll leave it up to the GM if he'll allow it.

It's so difficult picking out Path Abilities when all of them are so awesome.

My crunch sheet is on my page, but I can post it here too if desired.

Here're the Mythic Choices for my character:

Mythic Information (Marshal):

Path: Marshal

--------------------
Summary
--------------------

Mythic Ability Bonus: Charisma +2
Bonus Hit Points: +8 HP (+4/mythic tier)

Mythic Power: [2+5/day, 1d6]
Hard to Kill
Mythic Flaw - Elemental Vulnerability (Acid)
Amazing Initiative - [+20 initiative]

Marshal's Order - Advance
Additional Order - Decisive Strike
Feat of Charisma

Mythic Feat - Arcane Strike (Mythic)
--------------------

Amazing Initiative (Ex): At 2nd tier, you gain a +20 mythic bonus on initiative checks. In addition, you can expend one use of mythic power each round to take an additional turn, treating your initiative for this second turn as your initiative roll without the +20 mythic bonus. Using this ability is a free action that must be decided at the end of your first action during the round. This additional turn allows you to take the full range of actions available to you, but both turns still only count as one round for the purposes of durations and other effects based on rounds.

Bonus Hit Points: Whenever you gain a marshal tier, you gain 4 bonus hit points. These hit points stack with themselves, and do not affect your overall Hit Dice or other statistics.

Hard to Kill (Ex): Whenever you are below 0 hit points, you automatically stabilize without needing to make a Constitution check. Bleed damage still causes you to lose hit points when below 0 hit points. In addition, you do not die until your total number of negative hit points is equal to or greater than twice your Constitution score.

Mythic Flaw - Elemental Vulnerability (Acid): You take double the normal amount of damage whenever you take damage of the selected type. You can never benefit from resistance or immunity to that element and your mythic saves ability does not apply to any saving throw against a spell or effect that deals damage of the selected type.

Mythic Power [Charisma] (Su) : You can draw upon your mythic power a number of times per day equal to your mythic tier plus your mythic ability score’s bonus. In addition to abilities gained from your mythic path and overall mythic tier, you can expend one daily use of mythic power to increase any d20 roll you just made by rolling 1d6 and adding it to the results. Using this ability is an immediate action that is taken after the original roll is made and the results are revealed. This can change the outcome of the roll. The bonus gained by using this ability increases by one die size at 4th tier and every 3 tiers thereafter to a maximum bonus of 1d12. [2+5/day, 1d6]

--------------------

Advance (Ex): You can expend one use of mythic power as a swift action to order your allies to advance on the field of battle. This allows you and each of your allies within 30 feet to take a move action. Each creature affected by this ability can decide how to use this move action.

Decisive Strike (Su): You can expend one use of mythic power as a swift action to order one ally within 30 feet to make a melee or ranged attack in addition to any other actions or attacks the ally might make on its turn. The target adds your marshal tier as an insight bonus on the attack roll. Any damage dealt by this attack bypasses damage reduction.

Feat of Charisma (Su): You can expend one use of mythic power to attempt a feat of Charisma, gaining a +20 circumstance bonus on any one Charisma skill check or ability check.

--------------------

Arcane Strike (Mythic): Whenever you use Arcane Strike to imbue your weapons, they gain an additional +1 bonus to attack and damage. In addition, if you expend one use of mythic power you can also add any one magic weapon special ability with a base price modifier of +1. This base price modifier increases by 1 for every three mythic tiers you possess beyond 1st (+2 at 4th, +3 at 7th, and +4 at 10th). If you expend mythic power in this way, your arcane strike (and the bonus special ability) last for a total of 1 minute.

Normally I would not allow leadership in a 6-person party, but for purposes of the playtest, have at it.

Cohorts get elite array, and no Mythic ability unless you can bestow it on your minion.


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

Here is my very brief notes on just the Mythic paths:

Component Power should double the cost each time selected as well.

Reason: Its doubtful one would take this power more than two, perhaps three times, and as such won't be that massive. Even if one took it every time, he would ignore most if not all material components, but that's it.

Deep Understanding should grant a bonus on the your identifying checks, both for spells and magic item properties. Perhaps double your tier?

Fleet Warrior should add a bonus to your AC vs AoO

There should be some sort of mythic Combat Maneuver power

Guardians should get the most bonus HP

Why is there no Archmage familiar enhancer?

Why isn't Mighty Summons also an Archmage ability?

Abilities that allow rerolls should not force you to take the worst result, this is Mythic levels and abilities we're talking about!

Greater Power might grant max bonus instead of 2d8?

Inspiring Deeds should stack with Haste and similar affects as it is based on the Marshall attacking as well.

Rise Up might be allowed to be taken more than once, doubling the range each time, so 2nd time its 60ft, 3rd time 120, etc

Why do only some of the Paths allow an additional first level ability to be taken more than once?


Female Elven Cleric

Just from what I've seen in updating my character the Hierophant could really use a better selection of Divine surge's...not really to impressed with the list they give. But then again it was only 3 possible options and since I don't get a familiar or animal companion only 2 were relivent...


male human Barbarian 5th/Guardian and Champion Tier 2

I know i'm blending the Champion and Defender and wow, meleers seem far better than the spell caster

Sczarni

Male Cuddly L'il Fuzzy Hamster Psion (Telepath) 20

I don't know about that, Ug.

Check out A Hierophant/Cleric I made earlier for another playtest.

He's essentially a "saint" style character - heal the sick (at will), cure the blind (at will), fly (all the time), bring forth powerful angels (CG outsiders as Standard Action, Level 1-3 at will if desired, with Mythic templates and other add-ons), etc.

Mythic is badass!


Female Tian-Shu Human Bard 5 / Marshal 2
Status:
HP 46/46 | AC 19/13/17, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3 | Init +26; Perception +7

I'll get the Loyalty path ability when we get to Level 10. I still need to qualify for the Leadership feat, I think.

Those are good points, Monkeygod. The Combat Maneuver powers too.

I don't quite understand Rise Up myself. Does it mean that any nonmythic ally within 30 feet of you at any time of the day can add a die roll? In that case, increasing the range wouldn't make sense since that would mean it's a constant effect.

On the other hand, is it more of that the Marshal can use it once per day to let people around 'em add a die roll for that day? And in that case, does it mean that those affected have to add a die roll within 30 feet of the Marshal or can they do it anywhere that day once the Marshal has used the ability on them?


Female Half-Elf - Fighter2-Monk3-Chapian T2
Status:
Init +25 | AC 25/27 | HP 40/40 | F+6 | R+8 | W+4 | Per +8

Here just updating and getting every thing in place.


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

Rise Up can only be called upon once per day by allies within 30ft.

My suggestion would double the range per time taken, so taken twice, it would allow allies within 60ft, 3rd time allies with 120ft.

Increasing the range would allow it to affect more of an army type group, than just a small unit.


Female Half-Elf - Fighter2-Monk3-Chapian T2

Init +25 | AC 25/27 | HP 40/40 | F+6 | R+8 | W+4 | Per +8

I can see 'Through Shot' being greatly miss used, with Bleeding arrows.

CHAMPION Can Max Dex then take

Weapon Finesse (Mythic)
You are an expert with weapons that rely on your agility.
Prerequisite: Weapon Finesse, 1st mythic tier.
Benef it: You can use your Dexterity score on all melee
attack rolls and damage rolls instead of your Strength
score.

Thats ALL attacks!!

Then take, X3 so you get max dex mod in Full plate.

Armor Master (Ex): You do not suffer any armor check
penalty or arcane spell failure chance when wearing
light armor or using a shield. In addition, the maximum
Dexterity does not apply so long as the armor you wear
is light. This ability can be selected more than once.
The second time it is selected, it also applies to medium
armor. The third time it is selected, it also applies to
heavy armor.

So she can run around in Full plate using a gratesword sHes init will be nuts and Ref rolls will be high, His AC will be high, Dex+ Armor, his H2H and Range will be high, 1 state,

Yikes Im rebiuding with a level of fighter
-----------------

Also there is no MYTHIC Ki feat, so they kind of forgot monks.


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

Jason has already said, in a thread about how weak and unflavorful the Trickster is(which I readily agree with) that what we have is not all of the path abilities that will end up in the final product.
