Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

For what's it's worth, I had a great time with this campaign while it lasted, all the best to you GM Rapscallion and my crewmates, perhaps we'll adventure again somewhere on these boards.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Round 4, AC 18, HP 17/17

Moon takes a last shot before dropping the crossbow and drawing his boarding axe.

Crossbow, Light +5: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (12) + 5 = 17
Dmg: 1d8 ⇒ 1


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Round 3, AC 18, HP 17/17

"We're still alive, so that's a win! Keep shooting!" Moon fires another shot.

Crossbow, Light +5: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6
Dmg: 1d8 ⇒ 4


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

...and possible crit: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6
Dmg: 1d8 ⇒ 1

...or not, double 1s, that's more like Bosun Moon!


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Round 2, AC 18, HP 17/17

"Keep shooting, there's no right or wrong today, just survivors or corpses feeding the sharks!" Moon fires another shot.

Crossbow, Light +5: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (19) + 5 = 24
Dmg: 1d8 ⇒ 7


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Initiative: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (9) + 6 = 15

"Have at it lads, and may Besmara cuddle their corpses in a watery embrace!" Moon grabs a crossbow and targets a shadowy form on the main deck of the Man's Promise.

Crossbow, Light +5: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (18) + 5 = 23
Dmg: 1d8 ⇒ 4


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

"Aye, lads, lets rig!" Moon hops straight to work, literally, his peg leg plunking across the deck.

if we can take 10 on the rigging checks then Profession Sailor: 16, otherwise...
Profession, Sailor +6: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (3) + 6 = 9


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

"Moon, boy, it's Moon!" Bosun Moon claps Ravens on the back, "Like the big wheel o' cheese in the sky, the big orb that illuminates the night, creates tides and waves them geographers claim, Moon, boy, like a naked butt hanging over the railing when yer leaving port. It's easy to remember."


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

"Let's see what the waves have brought us today!" Moon buckles on his gear and makes his way topside, eager to see who has crossed their path.

Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (6) + 6 = 12


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

When Patch stands alone by the mainmast, Moon takes the opportunity to approach her. "Our offer still stands from before, Patch, join us as an equal and get the respect your loyalty deserves."

Diplomacy +5: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (13) + 5 = 18

Moon retires with Grok early that evening, resting after the day's battle and following punishment, but not before offering a bit of encouragement for Dorin. "Aye, Grok, I vouch for the lad, I'll pay the cost for his hammer myself if he's not good for it."


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

"Right, get it over with then!" Moon strides straight forward to accept his punishment, unafraid of the sadistic men.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

"We ain't stole a thing!" Moon blusters, "You heard Louly, she's only gone down twice today, and both times at Scourge's orders."


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Loudly, for everyone to hear,"I swear to you, Narhwal, on blessed Besmara herself, I didn't take yer family heirloom. But we both know the divide here on this ship, likely someones taken the thing and put it in our gear to cause more problems. Yer free to look in my locker and you can check me pockets yerself, I've never stolen a thing from any of ya on this floating tub!" The Moon proudly proclaims his innocence and stands arms wide open, as if offering up a search on the spot.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

it was pirate diplomacy, if I can get an "Aaarrg" from Louly then it's a 21 from the aid another


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

"Aye, Scourge, we don't even know what was stolen? It wasn't Jape's ugliness, he's as repulsive as ever, and it wasn't Fipp's stink, he still smells foul from upwind. Wait, I bet I know, Scourge's hair! That's where it disappeared! Look, I don't have much myself, and it's greasy, but I'll share it with ya, it makes for a nice combover."

Diplomacy(?): 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (14) + 5 = 19


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Moon spies Ravens putting a leg over the railing. "Aye, Ravens, this ain't the first dead water we've encountered, and it's likely not to be the last. But never fear, the wind is always a gust away and our sails will be filled 'fore long."

Moon lazes through the days, splitting his free time between Grok, Rum, and working on his suntan, not necessarily in that order.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

I'm still onboard as well


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Moon turns a nod towards Kehlysch, his usual chipped-tooth grin a bit wider than usual.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

As Scourge walks away, Moon grins and nudges Louly. Turning back to the new shipmates, Moon strides in their direction.

"Aye, Dorin, we'll see about getting back yer hammer," then with a nod to Ravens, "and those inks and quills as well. This evening after we've had our rum we'll take a bit of time to speak with gorgeous Grok."


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

As Moon emerges from the bilge area he sees one of the new crew members approaching him. With a friendly grin he steps toward the man...or does Scourge intervene?


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Once Jape is back at work, Moon himself sets back to the task of pumping the bilges, working diligently to get the task done despite the distractions.

Once the bilges are cleared, Moon will see if he can rouse Patch back to consciousness.

"Look here, Patch, I'll tell you same as I told Jape, if it's ever my decision I'll grant you freedom and a hand full of gold coins to tide you over at port 'til another ship hires you. There's no need for us to be killing each other over someone else's agenda. We could have left you to bleed out here in the bilges and we didn't do that, so let's call it a truce and go have some dinner and our evening rum."


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

"Look here, Jape, she can keep all her coins and her pretty little necklace, we ain't thieves" proclaims the rogue. "Now, as Louly says, get to workin', Patch has the afternoon off and you've the work of two to do."

Moon glares at the big man, waiting for him to go back to work.

assist on Louly's intimidate: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (12) + 4 = 16


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Round 4, AC 18, HP 17/17

Moon kneels down and checks on Patch, both to find any hidden objects and to see if Louly's healing work has stabilized the lass.

Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (10) + 6 = 16

"Good work Louly, she'll live yet."

Moon turns a shrewd glare on Jape, "Look here, Jape, if it's ever my decision I'll grant you freedom and a hand full of gold coins to tide you over at port 'til another ship hires you. There's no need for us to be killing each other over someone else's agenda."


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

"Quit Jape!" Moon yells at the big man, "Or you'll end up like her! Now lay down yer weapon!"

Moon does his best to look intimidating, a chipped tooth snarl framing the bloody axe he raises for a strike towards the flabby man.

Intimidate: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (9) + 4 = 13


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

easy decision after Al Davis moved the Raider to LA and screwed all the season ticket holders, and this was the 80s when you couldn't sell them on eBay


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

NorCal, born and raised, moved to Oregon after college, go 49ers!


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Round 3, AC 18, HP 17/17

Moon again shifts behind Patch, trying to create flanking with Louly.

Cold Iron Axe, Boarding +5: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (11) + 5 = 16
dmg: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4

if flanking and a hit, then sneak attack damage: 1d6 ⇒ 5


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Moon watches as Patch stands motionless, almost frozen in time, clearly she is considering his offer at peace.

"Come on Patch, there's no need for us to be spilling each other's blood, we know you're being put up to this. Put the weapon away and let's make a truce."


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

supposing that Moon can coordinate the attack with Louly and does get sneak attack damage...1d6 ⇒ 1

With a wicked grin, Moon answers Louly, "We'll tell the captain they shirked off and split, leaving us to do the work. There won't be any bodies after we pump out their hacked bits with the bilge water."


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Round 2, AC 18, HP 17/17

Moon shifts behind Patch, trying to create flanking with Louly and avoid being flanked himself.

"Give it up, Patch, captain will Keel Haul you for killing us, sure as the tides!"

Moon swipes again with his axe, not waiting for Patch to consider the request.

Cold Iron Axe, Boarding +5: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 25
dmg: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5

confirm the crit: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 5 = 9


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Round 1, AC 18, HP 17/17

Moon plunks toward Jape, drawing his axe in the process, then turns sharply to hack at Patch.

Cold Iron Axe, Boarding +5: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (11) + 5 = 161d6 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5

"Call it off, or we'll pump out yer hacked bits with the bilge water!


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Initiative: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (12) + 6 = 18

Sense Motive: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (6) + 6 = 12

Oooff!


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

aye-aye captain


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Moon, proud of his best work ever in the bilges, scowls at the criticism from Patch. Turning on the advancing Jape, Moon cracks his knuckles and puts a hand to his weapon. "I've done the best work a man can do here, back off you lout or I'll cut you a second smile."


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Moon climbs down into the stink of the bilges, more than ready to complete the work and climb right back out of that misery.

Strength: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (20) + 1 = 21
Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (7) + 6 = 13

Moon nods at Louly and puts hand to the hilt of his own weapon, he's seen the daggers as well. With a sly grin, Moon cracks his knuckles and sets to work, ready to pump the bilges or cut up Jape, which ever seems more productive.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

"Aye, Louly, I'll help you with that work in the bilges, two sets of hands will make the work go quicker."

When they get the bilges where other ears aren't listening...

"What do you make of the new swabs? The dwarf has a backbone, that one would make a fine ally I think. The other seems to be sun-burnt, I wonder if his mind has been addled by too much time being squeezed between the sky and the sea?"


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Moon finishes his rope work for the day and looks forward to the evening meal.

here


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Moon shakes his head sadly as the strange new man mutters to himself and follows Louly to the kitchen. Turning his attention to the now dour dwarf, Moon does what he can for the man to spare him the lash on his first day. "There, lad, don't worry 'bout your hammer for now, you'll be getting your goods back." Patting his own weapons for emphasis, Moon makes eye contact with Dorin and gives him a quick head shake saying No! while never altering his friendly grin.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Moon turns a glance towards Kehlysch and gives him a short nod, then turns back to the task of hauling in the little boat.

"Look lively lads, we've new crew!" Moon continues pulling on the ropes until a castaway is in arm's reach and then extends a hand. "Dorin Stonehammer, you say, well pleased to meet you, I'm Moon, remember that, and I'll bet life here on the Wormwood is not what yer floating about in that tub to find." Moon guffaws at his ill humor as he pulls Dorin all the way over the railing, then he reaches back over the side to help the other man aboard.

"There lad, sun burned yer mind? Come on now, climb on board." Moon extends his hand to the man, though hesitantly as he watches him eat something from his own lip.

Salty Besmara! The man speaks not and is eating his own lips, what foul sorcery is this, or has the sun burned away his sanity?


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Water for twine? Clearly these swabs have been in the sun too long!

Moon works his way into the rope throwing and hauling, hoping to get near the cast-a-ways when they're hauled on board.

"Here lads, let me lend a hand at this, bring them aboard proper now."


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

A boat! The first we've yet to encounter, does seem odd? What keeps these waters so quiet and empty, maybe they'll know?"

Pausing in his repair work, Moon shades his beady eyes and squints across the water at the little craft.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Clear skies and wind at the sails, nothing could go wrong on this day! Happily, Bosun Moon works on repairs and sewing sails, enjoying the good weather.

Profession Sailor (take 10, +6): 16

Moon will use his daytime action to try, yet again, to influence those crew members still hostile towards the party.

Diplomacy: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (7) + 5 = 12


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

@GM Rapscallion, assuming it will be alright, Painlord would like to join the game, both Mott and I have played with him, very competent. He may be able to bring a friend as well if we need another.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

I sent invites to both Verdigris and Painlord. Verdigris already replied and she's too busy at the moment with a new PFS campaign. Painlord always has fun characters, he would be a great addition to any group and he posts on a daily basis as well, so let's hope he decides to join.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Yea, this game is great, keep it going by all means! Sorry to see the ROTR game halt, I liked the characters. Hopefully Dorin joins this game, I can lobby another game for players to join this one as well, everyone in that game is quality (Mott, you know two of them, they were players from your RPG Superstar playtest, the Bee People group, which was also my first PbP game. Can I have nostalgia over something still relatively new? Nuevostalgia)


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Ha! The Niners came up big on MNF, can't believe the 25 point comeback with a defense and TE vs. Forte. Von Miller has been winning it for me though, broke 20 three weeks in a row.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

With the prospect of a boarding battle on the horizon, Moon keeps trying to sway the opinions of the crew in favor of the party, in hopes that help will be there when needed.

Diplomacy (day): 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11

Diplomacy (night): 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (12) + 5 = 17


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

I noticed some posts were deleted from other games, if you posted this last weekend you might want to check that it's still there.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Moon flings his grappling hook at the ships rail.

Grapple the Rail (+5, -6): 1d20 - 1 ⇒ (18) - 1 = 17

"Aye, lads, that's how it's done!" Moon grabs the rope and throws his peg leg over it, then shimmies up to the ship.

Climb to the Rail (+5): 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (10) + 5 = 15

"See, lads, the Moon rises again!"


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

"Right, Ben, let's show them swabs how this is done, we scale that rope and we don't give a damn what Jipps or Faps is throwing at us."

Moon plunks to the edge of the ship, ready to test his skill at the art of boarding.
