After several bonks, all of the loonies ate unconscious. Also assume Deaglan would stabilize the downed one as well.

Where to next?

@Deaglan: The fog enters the hallway again, but your shouting isn't enough to distract the manic men!

With the fog in the room, Varian eventually slips out unnoticed. Owai then closes the door.

Out of Combat order unless someone wants to. I assume everyone will just leave them be? If so, then let me know where to explore next (including down the stairs as an option)!

2 people marked this as a favorite.

Deaglan saves the wounded lunatic before heading west.

This lecture hall is the largest room you've come across. A man, unconfined by his straightjacket, speaks to another four men and women who stare at him in awe.

"...nd that's why the voting for king doesn't make any sense. It is our sovereign right that kinghood should be determined by the most fair way possible: the champion of rock-paper-scissors-lizard-vrock!"

The attendees clap enthusiastically, and in doing so, you can see each one has a various item in his or her hand, one has a pair of garden shears, another a fist sized piece of middenstone, a third has a large book, one has a dead iguana on him, and the speaker now clutches a statuette of some monstrous creature.

The patients finally notice your presence, the speaker shouting, "Interlopers! You weren't invited to our kingmaking!"

WHAM! The patient spins around in a circle before landing face first onto the body, several fingers popping out of a pocket.

The patient that Varian attacked is still alive and can be stabilized.

Looking through the rest of this area, it's a storeroom, although the location next to the the body and patients is a toilet; more mirror fragments lie here and a blood trail obviously shows where the other patient was killed and dismembered.

To the west from the hallway where the party entered the storeroom, more frantic shouting can be heard.

Blue AoO @ Varian: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 2 = 7
Damage on hit: 1d6 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 2 = 7

Shocking Varian, the lunatic whips at him with a straightjacket belt, but the aasimar easily avoids the obvious attack. He then fells the lunatic in a single blow!

On mobile, Blue is down so ignore that icon.

Lantern Lodge RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

Sorry, such a large swatch of area!

The party makes their way west and Deaglan leads the way. He opens the door across from the lunatic with stairs... to find a similar setup of a man suspended by chain with stairs going downwards. She immediately cackles out in some tongue that is perhaps more gibberish than intelligible words.

Past that, a hallway leads to two doors. There is noise coming from both, but Deaglan checks the southern door first.

Two women, their straightjackets undone, are sitting over a body of man also in a straightjacket. Their hands are empty, but you hear one call out to the other. "Any 3's?" The other looks at her empty hands, sticking out her tongue and placing a severed toe on in front of the first woman. "Cheata!". The light coming in from the opened door gets both women's attention, though. "More meat prizes!" they call out in unison!

Red: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (8) + 2 = 10

Shilyn: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (17) + 3 = 20
Varian: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (13) + 2 = 15

Before anyone can react, the lunatic who just won a toe dashes towards Deaglan with a bloodied mirror shard and swipes at his neck!

Deaglan goes through several of the doors in the central area of the asylum. From near the barracks and dining hall is a storeroom filled with crude, yet effective suits of studded leather armor and a variety of clubs, straightjackets, and other equipment for subduing people. Adjacent is a set of large bins with stagnant water. Given the fact you see soap and a brush leads you to believe that's the washroom.

From the central hallway is a man chained to a wall orange straightjacked icon on the map at a small landing before a set of stairs descends below. Upon seeing you, he shrieks out horrifically.

"Light! FLESH! Why am I not skin? I CRAVE MEATING!", and begins thrashing against the chains that bind him.

Map updated. Any other explorations?

Lantern Lodge RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

No shortage of rags!

@Deaglan: If you wish to try and find some Crows, it'll take some time and I'll require a Diplomacy or Kn: Local check!

Lantern Lodge **** RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16 aka Black Powder Chocobo

Yeah, I like it. Gives a bard that wants it an offensive damage tool unique to them. Scales alright and does balance with not being able to buff others when using it.

Lantern Lodge RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

But the bad guy doesn't know that Shi :P While GM's will vary on particulars on 'what is bluff vs diplomacy vs intimidate', I see threats of violence, as Intimidate. As the saying goes, 'violence perceived is violence achieved'. :)

Lantern Lodge RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

"But I can't tell ya Boss is Boss Crove!", he cries out to Shilyn's threats.

Which would be an Intimidate check, btw... but the roll with your Charisma would have still worked :)

To save SOME time as there are many doors, much open, wows, let me know which set of doors you're aiming for (all the eastern ones, the ones near the entrance, etc. Basically it'll be 2-3 doors a search.

And map updated, exposed a few hallways that are visible enough or that I forgot to show during the orderly chase

Lantern Lodge RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

@Deaglan: "Da boss said ta keep out intrudas and put 'em in da cells dunstairs! I can't tell ya who in charge tho', Boss Crove said wants to keep dis hushy hush!"

Seems to be telling the truth, first idea is that he's too stupid to lie well at the very least.

@Mahasi: Way to RP it... and I haven't forgotten, but darn it, you guys are pushing through rapidly to say the least!

Lantern Lodge RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

All sorts, giant blade right through the head cage... I like to think you formed your weapon through the cage.

Lantern Lodge RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

And with that, Grey orderly goes down!

Forgot to add Shilyn's latest damage, but Varian just made that moot... more so if he confirms the crit threat:P

Orange Will: 1d20 ⇒ 7

Dropping his club after Varian stabs the orderly across from him with his greatsword, Orange shouts, "Dun hurt me!"

Combat over... unless you feel like beating more heads in!

Now that you've gotten past the entrance and nothing is trying to kill you, the true gloom of this place is starting to set in. Candles lit within various sconces keep the place in no more than dim illumination, which doesn't do much to make the dingy, pale green walls look more appealing.

North of Owai is a dining room with a trio of bowls half-filled with a stew filled with various chunks that are hopefully meat and vegetables; it's hard to tell in the lighting and the strange odor coming from the area.

Lantern Lodge RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

Owai, trade in your dice... you've rolled an above average number of 1's! Don't forget, you also have a full turn :)

Deaglan gets cracked in the head twice by the lowlifes before, one of the blows nearly breaking his nose!

@Owai: Actually, their CMD is poor... you made it! You can make your attack roll against Gray; since he's he's injured, you may disrupt Gray's action and I'll retcon things accordingly if you do.

With a pull of his bagging pants, the Gray orderly finally gets himself readjusted, although not in time to stop Owai. He does turn and shout. "Get back ova der!"

Gray trip @ Owai: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (14) + 7 = 21
And the aasimar BARELY stands on his feet from the sweep at his legs!

Meanwhile, the one on Deaglan will try to cause him to fall.

Deaglan, seeing an opportunity, runs in with armed steel and cuts down the orderly on Shilyn before he could grab the nearby unattended club.

Shilyn, you are no longer prone!

Varian narrowly misses the orderly around the corner, prevented a solid blow by Owai and Deaglan preventing appropriate swing routes.

Deaglan: Because you felled Green, it'll only be a single attack, but without the Cleave AC penalty now. You can change your action if you wish if you have something better in mind.

Damage on hit: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5

Owai only narrowly uses is free hand to reinforce his blade from his prone position, holding black a blow aimed at his temple. Pushing the strike back, the aasimar stands up and returns steel, cutting the orderly in the chest. "Wut happened?", is all he can muster before falling into a pool of his own blood.

Deaglan, if you wish to act before any of the orderly actions, you may. There's briefly an open spot where Grey is and if you take it, Grey will return to his original position. Assuming that you won't for right now.

Another orderly steps into the other's spot. "My turn!", and once again aims for the knees.

Gray Trip @ Owai, maybe Deaglan: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (1) + 7 = 8

But he stumbles over the body of his fallen ally, missing terribly.

Green Int: 1d20 - 3 ⇒ (18) - 3 = 15

The orderly on Shilyn actually has a useful though, grabbing the club from Pink, and uses that to swing at the sorceress' legs!

Green Trip @ Shilyn: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (13) + 7 = 20

"Dis one ain't slippry at all!", smiling as once again Shilyn takes to the ground.

You are now officially prone again :)

The orderly still in the barracks doorway tries to trip up the aasimar (or Deaglan) again!

Orange trip @ Owai, possibly Deaglan: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (20) + 7 = 27

And despite the cover (or thick stubby legs), Owai (or Deaglan) is tripped!

Deaglan, if you move in and act, you will be tripped on your turn. Otherwise, Owai will be tripped. Your choice, but I would think Deaglan would be happy to finally get into the fray, although the longhammer does present problems.

Owai's efforts to be impossible to hit is clearly affecting his aim!

"Stop dis traveshamockery and fight right!", the orderly on Owai shouts, trying to get the aasimar face first on the ground.

Pink Orderly trip @ Owai: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (16) + 7 = 23

"Huh, gotcha dis time ya flexipunk!", barely catching Owai's ankle, throwing off the precarious balance of his stance and causing him to land on his side. "GET HIM!", the proud orderly yells to his fellow lackeys on either side of him, the one in the barracks doorway standing up first.

Orange club @ Owai: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10
Damage on hit: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 1 = 6
Gray club @ Owai: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (15) + 5 = 20
Damage on hit: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2

Owai is still too nimble, rolling back and forth on the ground to evade the incoming blows from around the corner.

Meanwhile, the orderly that's on Shilyn grabs his weapon before trying to club her.
Green Reflex: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5
But the weapon slips out of his hands.
"Stupid club!"
Green Reflex: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (12) + 1 = 13

But it still can't stay within the man's stubby fingers.

Don't forget Deaglan's bless!

Varian lands a blow over Owai's shoulder, finally wounding the Orderly that's been harassing him.

Lantern Lodge RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

Sorry, have family in town and was busy most the day.

Owai misses the defiant orderly that has been smacking Varian.

Green AoO @ Shilyn: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 5 = 9
Damage on hit: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5
Shilyn's acrobatics make her a difficult target and the cage-headed man attacking her misses the nimble sorceress.

Mahasi then gives the men a taste of their own medicine with his own pile of grease. Once again, the orderly now engaged with the other aasimar stands his ground, but the one in front of Shilyn and the other in the barracks falls to the ground comically, the metal cages echoing with a clang as they hit the ground.

"Stand up and get deez suckas!", one of the orderlies shouts at the others as he aims for Owai's legs.

Pink trip @ Owai: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (10) + 7 = 17

However, Owai uses his blade to easily deflect the club, pushing it to the side. "Wha? It werkd on da otha shiny one!", confused as to what happened.

"I show ya how it dun!", the one around the corner boasts as he tries to club Owai in the leg.

Gray trip @ Owai: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (12) + 7 = 19
Another flourish of the blade, another failed trip.

The one on Shilyn stands up and tries to club her kneecap again.
Shilyn, you get an AoO against Green

Green trip @ Shilyn: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (16) + 7 = 23
And once again, the half-elf lands on her side. "She easy!", he shouts to the others.

Lastly, the one in the doorway stands up and aims for Owai's legs as well.

Orange trip @ Owai: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (18) + 7 = 25
This one nearly succeeds, the aasimar having to use the door frame to his advantage to narrowly dodge the club.

Thank goodness for cover bonus there!

Deaglan works his way into the fray, seeing Varian and Owai backing up slightly, and Shilyn unfortunately cornered. "Ooo, dis'll be easy!", he smiles, rising his club over his caged head to continue bashing the half-elf.

Varian gets clubbed as he stands up. However, he swings his hammer at the one behind him.
Varian, your damage didn't go through, so rolling for it.
1d12 + 3 ⇒ (4) + 3 = 7

Owai makes room while increasing his own speed. Shilyn then darts forward, bouncing back and forth off the wall to reach the orderly in the rear of the hallway and drives her rapier into his back, felling him.

Mahasi tries to reach the others, but curses Shilyn for forgetting about her spell.

The orderlies begin their counter attack, the one at Varian swinging for his legs again.

Pink trip @ Varian: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (18) + 7 = 25

He clubs the other knee, once again bringing the aasimar down.

The orderly around the corner then tries to club the downed man.

Gray club @ Varian: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10
Damage on hit: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3

And once again misses.

Meanwhile, one of the others moves to engage Shilyn, taking the club to her feet.

Green trip @ Shilyn: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (20) + 7 = 27

The half-elf just barely rolls enough to avoid breaking her nose on the middenstone flooring as she falls to the ground.

Finally, another one in the barracks room aims at the downed Varian's head.

Orange club @ Varian: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 5 = 9

I'll have fun with any of 'em, but I personally am quite familiar with the level (GM'ed it 4 times thus far), so I'm good with a voted upon PC for this.

But Gambit's winning, so I should probably update that profile :P

Lantern Lodge RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

I haven't posted in the Gameplay yet; would prefer to with the correct PC profile if I can help it.

Looking at what's there, divine is covered very well, so leaning towards either support monk or "Gambit". I'd appreciate any more input, but I'll have a decision by the end of the day.

Lantern Lodge RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

Hey guys,

I have 3 level 3 PCs I can choose for this. What'll be the preference between:

Card Caster/Staff Magus 2/Lore Warden 1 (Gambit)
Drunken Qinggong Oaut Sensei 3 (buff dwarf from advise and granting ki to others)
Divine Hunter Hunter 3 (primarily archery ranged, owlbear companion)

I'm indifferent as to which one gets played, just want to support the party :)

Botting Shilyn

With all the threats in the room dealt with, the elf spryly makes her way to follow the others.

She can't fail her acro

The orderly at the door opens it; Varian can see another three armed men. "Dey here, get 'em!", before he swings at Varian's feet!

Blue Trip @ Varian: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (20) + 7 = 27

He trips the aasimar before stepping back 5', so no AoO, while the others pile in, including another one from the northern hallway.

Pink club @ prone Varian: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (13) + 5 = 18
Damage on hit: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 1 = 6
Pink club @ prone Varian: 1d20 + 5 - 2 ⇒ (7) + 5 - 2 = 10
Damage on hit: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2

The one directly in front of Varian bruises him in the chest, while the other glances lightly enough that the armor takes the impact.

Init Order (bold = up)
Owai
Shilyn
Mahasi

Orderly Blue (8 damage)
Orderly Pink
Orderly Gray
Orderly Green
Orderly Orange
Deaglan
Varian (prone, 6 damage)

@Jiggy: Personally, even now, I still see it as an implicit substitution, that the ladder of SLA's cannot be used to reach the top of the wall of prestige class requirements.

However, I can understand your position better, why what you say makes sense. It doesn't change my mind that I believe Mike/John still made the right call, but I better understand the reason for your arguing that it is not. I shall concede to you, o' requested forum archivist.

@Jiggy: I want to send you a detailed private message about this, but before I do that, I have a question first.

To you, do you see the previous "SLA's counting as 'able to cast X-level spell'" as a substitution or a equivalency? By that, I mean do you see the requirements implicitly written as "able to cast X-level spells, but you can substitute SLA's of the equivalent level as a qualification" or as "able to cast X-level spells, with SLA's of the equivalent level being the same thing"? I understand that this is nitpicky, but I think that's one of the reasons some of us are seeing it different from others.

@Andrew: I had to do a request to see both of your docs, so you should get that soon.

@Kendra: Yours looks good, too!

Nik is back in town, so he should get his finished up soon!

I don't understand the distinction you're making.

How is it not a change to say that SLA no longer satisfy the requirement?

Because literally, RAW, the requirements for the prestige class didn't change. For example, Eldritch Knight requirements are 'proficiency with all martial weapons and ability to cast 3rd-level arcane spells'. After the FAQ update, that did not change. The requirements weren't 'proficiency with all martial weapons and ability to cast 3rd-level arcane spells or use a 3rd-level spell-like ability.' What the FAQ update did was remove the SLA's as a substitute for the required spellcasting ability, but it did not change the PrC's spellcasting requirement.

I hope that distinction makes sense. If not, I'll try again.

This is true, but it's basically a semantic argument and doesn't actually make any difference.

I disagree that it's a semantic argument. It's more RAW than I'd prefer, but that's a valid argument against more generous rebuilds/grandfathering. I think it's necessary as is a solid, consistent reason why the rebuild rules in the Guide are not being applied and why extended grandfathering wasn't set.
