Ivy, as a knife master your sneak attack with such weapons is D8 not D6.

Are we waiting on Alex's input? Maybe someone else could step up and be interim leader for the time being?

I've been a little reluctant to be forceful because i'm able to post so infrequently right now, but I really don't understand the constant desire to retreat.

The strain/injury system finally gives something of a solution to the 15 minute work day but it feels like everyone is trying to make it the 5 minute workday.

We're low level. The casters are expected to have useful cantrips and/or basic weaponry. Our martials really have a chance to shine and push on using the strain system... and we keep running clear and discussing retreat at every moment.

The only person with any actual damage is Aerathiel.

I suspect Okoya is having the same thoughts as I am but is being more diplomatic.

In addition, there have been hints that time is an issue. Wasting an entire day because our Oracle is fizzled out seems like such a waste.

Please allow the DM to write out excess treasure in any way he sees fit, people :)

I'll be posting myself this weekend. Still trying to clear up my schedule.

Does the macro program do things like roll the dice, then sort players into initiative order? If not, it might be just as easy and useful to make txt documents with what you want, and just copy and paste as necessary.

It does not.

I used to copy and paste as you suggest, but Shortkeys saves me time as I don't need to dig around for the document, copy and paste it. Can just stay in my window and type the hotkey.

No, I mean just rolling initiative for everyone and making blocks based on it. If the enemy only have one initiative roll for all of them anyway, it works out as 2-3 blocks maximum anyway.

Example-

Monsters (Highest Roll block)
PC's (highest to lowest block)

Example 2-
PC's (Highest Roll block)
Monsters (highest to lowest block)

Example 3 (most common)-
PC's (those higher than monsters block(
Monsters (Roll block)
PC's (lower than monsters block)

Arguably, 3 is still two blocks because it still essentially alternates.

The best way to reward high initiative characters is to just roll for everyone and organise what follows.

Casimir- 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 25
Malthir- 1d20 + 0 ⇒ (14) + 0 = 14
Fenna- 1d20 + 0 ⇒ (12) + 0 = 12
Ricter- 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (13) + 2 = 15
Kalev- 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (19) + 3 = 22
Kip- 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (6) + 6 = 12
Monster- 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (18) + 5 = 23

Casimir- 25
Monster- 23
Kalev- 22
Ricter- 15
Malthir- 14
Kip- 12
Fenna- 12

^^ so each round, Casimir would act, then the monster, then everyone else is free to act (but still resolved in initiative order; jumping the gun gets really messy). This is 3 blocks, but if Casimir doesn't need to wait for a map update or anything he can always pre-post his action for the next round, reducing it to a 2 block system.

Anyway, advocating for my personal preference aside, I am ok with group initiatives too.

Taldor

Male

In all honesty, it usually ends up with a maximum of 3 blocks. Often PC's, Monsters, PC's.

I will admit to fiddling the order in which dice rolls are made sometimes to make it go neatly into two blocks :P.

Reginald, I use software called Shortkeys Lite. Very easy to use, the free version stores up to 10 macros. I type #combat and it writes out my full round template (with italics and bold etc.). I also have initiative and group perception rolls on other macros per game.

I'm still here... I just haven't had any spare time for PbP for about a week now. My own games are languishing too. :(

Taldor

Male

Not very familiar with the Warpriest; do they get Weapon Focus for free?

Taldor

Male

Just trying to find time to update sorry. I'm working 12-14 hours a day at the moment.

Taldor

Male

Removing General Dante mere days before an impending Ork attack would be absolutely devastating for the Damaris Military. Even a few hours in, that much is obvious.

Taldor

1 person marked this as a favorite.

We all saw the ruckus raised by Dervish Dance because of its focus on a specific weapon (scimitar) and they plan to do it again with the rapier ?

Just make a single feat that covers all light weapons (with appropriate prerequisites and restrictions - i.e., no natural weapons -) and get done with this forever.

This. Seriously, this. I loathe the scimitar and its dominance for finesse combatants.

Taldor

Male

From a very extensive PbP experience, i'd keep things moving. People can always FlexTime RP in. Momentum is pretty crucial.

Taldor

Male

Can make them with Tokentool in about 15 seconds if required.

I'll join the IC tonight.

Taldor

Male

Its been done before. One guy on the forums is notorious for it. Joana keeps an eye out for him. But if someone just makes a new account rather than using the same one... you can't tell.

I'm hiding this thread and moving on. Tanner can PM me if we are a-go.

Taldor

Male

Yup. More than once.

Taldor

Male

Updating on Sunday. Had a really tough weekend

Taldor

Male

Honestly... you have better options as an Inquisitor than channeling for damage. Especially as your Charisma is only +2. And with hefty feat expenditures.

Taldor

Male

I honestly think when a GM of a new game disappears for 4 days straight at the very start... he ain't coming back. I'm hoping to be proved wrong.

Taldor

Male

Doesn't gain you much. Inquisitor is arguably the best designed class in the game, where everything scales quite smoothly with your level.

Taldor

Male

CONFORM, DAMN YOU.

Taldor

Male

Not seen the GM since last PM to me inviting me to make a divine character. Anyone know anything, he ok?

Taldor

Male

Wanted to give the tech-Priest a distinct way of talking but I think hes ended up some kind of cross-breed between Spock, a Robot and Yoda.

Taldor

Male

If Kragnir bites it, i'm definitely rolling a Human. Having to spend points to bring racial penalties back up to an 8 really hurts and effectively puts you on a lower point buy.

Taldor

Male

This scene is not a social interaction challenge, per se. More of a general roleplay scene (where dice may also come into play).

Taldor

Male

I never got clarification on that question. Can remove his without any issue though, not a big deal either way.

Taldor

Male

I tend not to play females. Just not something I feel proficient in.

Bringing a high charisma Oracle into play. More to come when i'm finished.

Taldor

Male

Dot. I'll (hopefully, pending GM approval) be bringing in a high charisma character so can fulfill "face" functions probably.

You should be aware that re-rolling is not the only purpose of Fate Point expenditure. I have added the available actions for it to the Campaign Info tab so you have easy, permanent access; but i'll post them here once too-

1. Re-roll a failed test once.
2. Gain a +10 bonus to a test (BEFORE dice rolled)
3. Add a degree of success to the test (AFTER dice rolled)
4. Count as rolling a 10 for initiative.
5. Instantly remove 1d5 damage (does not affect critical damage)
6. Instantly recover from being stunned.

Taldor

Male

Sorry all. I've needed Maptools to progress further with the game and between working overtime yesterday evening until 7:30PM and going to bed at 9:30PM to be up early for driving before work, I simply didn't get the time. Will be updating tonight.

Taldor

Male

I tried that last round.

Taldor

Male

Can Aerathiel and Kheled frankly, get out of prime real estate space. If you made some room Mus'ad could strike, 5 foot back and allow Pherenike to move in and add another strike.

Taldor

Male

For those tracking your wisdom hits, track it as Wisdom damage rather than reducing your actual wisdom. Works differently.

Still fine if you do.

Just so there is 0 confusion Telurion, here is the advantage the ring gives you-

6 extra hours a day.

For clarity they are only visible from inside the room as they are twenty feet up and past the doorway.

DM, frankly that last post made very little sense to me.

Taldor

Kip doesn't have line of sight. He's still in the corridor.

This was something I meant to bring up last week but it completely slipped my mind in a busy week of work. They aren't subvocalise. I let it slide in the meeting with Kapak but please do not think you can communicate via microbead subtly right in front of people.

I have set intervals in mind for fate point refresh. I'll let you know when they refresh but don't expect it to be this soon.

I'm sorry, it's probably the effect I'm having on the group. My dice rolls are generally atrocious so if this is spill over I apologise :p.

I still remember the 4 damage 1d6+3d6 sneak attack. Although at least you hit.

I'll be updating shortly. Still at work buts its finally calming down a little.

Taldor

Male

Poor Navis. At least you aced the commerce earlier. It all makes for a good story anyway. I'd have been a little disappointed if EVERYONE managed to charm their respective marks!

Taldor

Male

Apologies to the trio; i'm only really doing a lone wolf thing because this week at work has been the busiest I have ever been. Will engage a lot more when we meet at noon.

Alexander Kilcoyne- I'd prefer to keep the races to those initially listed and the aforementioned Kobolds. I'd like to keep a smattering of non-Core races available, but not a ton.

Fair enough. I honestly thought the militaristic, disciplined mind of a Hobgoblin would be better suited for the game than a Goblin (plus, I really wanted to roam around the Stolen Lands on a Warg using Fell Rider archetype :) ).

Finalising a wandering, aspiring Swordlord instead; a nefarious, ambitious individual from Mivon. Can we use Drawbacks?

Wow. I'm the only one willing to commit to CE?

Its TyrantMaker, not MurderHoboMaker :P.

Taldor

GM; i'm interested and will be pitching a character. I'm wondering if you would allow a Hobgoblin? Seems to me very suitable for Tyrantmaker.

Taldor

Male

Not fully but suspect he will be.

You may want to fully commit yourself to persuading him (Dante) in a latter phase. Its apparent he sees himself as Governor Kapak's equal and thus he is likely to feel spurned if he receives any less honorific and etiquette.

Taldor

Male

I'm reading but had literally the two busiest days i've ever seen at work so posting is limited. I'm already late to bed updating my own games tonight.

Taldor

Male

I will also lurk into the shadows once more; but give Castor priority as first to speak up. Thanks all.

When I'm DMing, I'm rooting for the players: Roll high all you want. It's only when your rolls go against me that they get frustrating; when Sajan was rerolling failed saves for us, it was awesome. ;)

For the more minor NPC's, i'm not running it as a social interaction challenge, rather just handling it with one or two checks and role-play. You've got a large bonus with him for addressing him in Tech-Lingua actually. Utterly slammed at work. Still hoping to update shortly.
