Congrats! Hasn't it been months since you finished classes though, AK?


I've been tittering about it since yesterday, personally.


I caught that- did I forget to update that or have I just not posted since?


Also, traveling this weekend. Should still be able to post, but fair warning just in case.

Must share - mind is blown, medieval illuminated manuscript that among other awesomeness includes this image:

A dog riding a rabbit jousting against a rabbit riding a snail with a human head.

You know, I'd never heard of Night of the Lepus until a coworker at the library mentioned it a few months back.


Kieran, I believe the only snake left is the one on Jakob after Ansha's acid arrow (not acid splash!).


AK wrote:
Your DM was just forgetful Jakob :).

I think you also forgot Ansha's round 2 action. She moved to G46 not F47...and she cast an Acid Arrow at one of those snakes molesting Akirra and Jakob. ;P


Kieran can't flank the snake at I42 with Jakob, but he should be able to flank it with Qhude if he moves to H42 instead of H43. Probably would need to use Acrobatics to get there, though.


I was half-expecting to come back to see a post describing Ansha's and Kieran's ribs being crushed. Definitely a better outcome! ;P


That's a holdover from 3.5 that they did away with in PFRPG. I posted about it up-thread months and months ago, quoting SKR. They've since updated the PRD to reflect PFRPG rules too.


Presumably the blue circle means I'm prone, and apparently I'm not important enough to merit a red dot.


The one with the red dot on it on the map--west.


Delay until after Tebati (unless she delays past the snakes' turn).


You're completely right. I really only have one thing to say about this entire thing: "I've (already) had it with these snakes in this barracks!"


The snakes were summoned where they are after something pushed in a section of wall in the northwest corner.

No- theres one red dot on the left hand snake and one on Kieran.

I don't get a red dot. :( I just get a lousy blue circle.


Yeah, you're right. Kieran's at 4/29hp. I can't add.


Yeesh. Ansha is at 3/22 hp and I think Kieran is at -1/29...all before the fight even starts.

Out of curiosity, how would Mirror Image affect damage from a grapple?


I don't doubt it. I think there was a Master's in there somewhere too.


Random fact (because I'm bored at work and trying to keep awake): almost 60% of all our in-character posts occurred in the first year of the game. We got to level 2 in 3 months, and it took us 20 months to hit level 3, with level 4 in 6 months.


I concur!


3 years, 3 levels- happy birthday/anniversary to the Sargavan Saga :P


I think several adventuring companies in Forgotten Realms (Knights of Eveningstar/Myth Drannor and Company of Crazed Venturers) are former PCs. The way I understand it, several of the Paizo staff's characters made it into APs, and I think include a couple of iconics. So in theory your PC could end up in a written supplement (probably not a novel though).

I agree though, R.A. Salvatore's novels have been crap for at least a decade. The last ones I enjoyed were Siege of Darkness and its post-Dark Elf Trilogy sequels.

In our tabletop mythic game, one player is playing a drow female on the surface of Golarion. I partially blame Salvatore for making non-evil drow PCs "cool"--I hate Drizzt so much.


No, I don't think there is a spellcaster's version of Shot on the Run. Though if the DM were amenable to it, you could always simply spend the action to cast, then move and say the final word/trigger while moving.


Shot on the Run might work where Spring Attack wouldn't.


By the way, AK, when Ansha was peering into the Rare Botanical Specimens room, did it look like the second door on the east side also opened into the same room?


Ansha has two scrolls of Hold Portal on her. The problem is that the duration is so short--only 1 minute per level, and the two scrolls are caster level 2.


Honestly I love high-level campaigns, even in PFRPG. It just requires more thought, and often the focus of the campaign shifts away from combat.

I really want to use the Mythic rules as PFRPG's 'epic' rules, but so far my tabletop GM seems convinced that they are best used before then. Mind you, so far the mythic campaign (currently level 4/tier 2) we're in feels incredibly overpowered to me...which is probably a great deal why I think it's better to use the mythic tiers as tacked-on ad hoc levels 21-30.


Other ways to get around the max age wall include the Longevity mythic path ability and the wizards' Immortality arcane discovery, which sadly requires level 20 (the mythic ability only requires mythic tier 1).


The plantoids may be relatively recent "additions" to the pyramid. They are summoned/called creatures. Their servitors could have been humans unlucky enough to be here when the plantoids arrived--or have summoned them themselves, only to lose control of them.

There is a fungus that does this to ants IRL: Ophiocordyceps unilateralis.


I haven't tried something that complicated in PbP yet. I'll stick with having to make the hard choices of what spells to cast. ;P


I like updating mine by hand, personally....


I think I'm finally done illustrating this drawing. (I know I've said that before....) Ansha

So....he's scowling? ;P

Qhude's player is bad at updating his sheet :P

The bit at the bottom was the last set of upgrades - which included enchanting the guisarme to +1. I'll update the sheet properly tonight.

By the way, did you ever get around to updating? It still doesn't look like it!

It's said that the US is only 50 years behind England, so give it a few decades and you'll see it in the US too. (Actually, I'm sure that happens at some US festivals anyway...and the 50-year stat is primarily related to religious affiliation/attendance, but still.)

Tebati has no interest in the device. "Whatever it is, the Custodian's experts will examine in at their leisure once we have cleared the level. Why waste our time on it now? Let us at least check around the corners at the end of the corridor to see if any danger awaits there."

No one listens to Tebati. :P

Hey, when Ansha gets it in her head to do something, she's so single-minded (and tunnel-visioned) it's scary!


I missed that there were doors leading out of this room not blocked by a force-field. If I had caught that, Ansha would probably have waited until the rest of the level was explored. >_>;


Quite honestly, I don't think this whole line of discussion is very productive.


Qhude wrote:
he issue here is the implications behind the inverted comma'd 'professionals' (which implies that the party is not)

Jakob has indicated that if it were not being driven by meta-game concerns, IC he would prefer to leave it to Morvius' experts--pretty sure that's what Akirra was referencing by "professionals." If anyone implied that the party was not...well, Akirra wasn't the first one to do it. ;P


Ansha does what she can get away with without obviously harming her Umkhaya, more or less. ;P As I recall, she was the one who primarily interacted with the ceustodaemon upstairs too...and it was kind of blocking their way.

Similarly, Akirra and the fountain are the two points of interest in the area now that the Umkhaya are trapped in here. She's leery of magical fountains, so she'll try that after she awakens the dude who has been sleeping for millenia.

I think mostly we've learned that arguing with Ansha avails nothing. What Ansha wants, Ansha gets.

Now that we've established this, I want a pony. And I like to think that Ansha has absolved you all of OOC responsibility for acting out-of-character by throwing the switch before anyone can stop her. ;P


Occasional drama aside, I'm still loving this campaign. Even the IC drama is often fun, though we need to probably keep in mind OOC that our characters have been through a lot together, and thus there should be more camaraderie than we sometimes show IC.

Also, I think it was perfectly IC for Ansha to experiment on Akirra, and then impulsively throw the switch to awaken him when her first idea didn't work.


Yeah, I think I pointed out that your Strength and combat stats (hit/damage) didn't reflect the Belt of Giant Strength months ago. ;P


Qhude, Ansha moved 5' to the east on her action in round 1. When Qhude gets his first action in round 2, he could just 5' step south into the doorway if he wanted. I don't think Ansha would grant cover to the creature if Qhude stepped 5' to the east as well, but the door frame might.


It worked for Ansha. Tebati or Ansha can attempt to shake Qhude free from it before the mad spirit acts.


If it moves her away from the mad spirit and/or breaks her fascination, she can probably find it in her heart to forgive Jakob. ;P


To answer your question, yes, Ansha's stats are up to date.


Thankfully, there's a few vacancies!
