Ooh...I want to live in a Darco.

A bit stolen, but whatever.

144. I'm sorry, did I break your concentration?

Why do I feel like I am typing out some weird variant on Morse code?

Too many vowels for you?

Where have I seen you before?

Shadow Lodge

Hmmm...when will they be mustering for that?

Shadow Lodge

How many times for you? You were on the first page.

WHAT? Vader is Luke's father? I knew I shouldn't have waited so long to see the second movie.

37 people could have played it without a pregen :P
And they still wouldn't be able to grandfather in a tiefling or aasimar with that 1 xp if they had. :P

And should be punched in the face if they try. :p

Shadow Lodge

I think it took us about 8 hours when we played it.

The Porter the first level character bought with prestige?
Unless you're going slow track, it's hard (not impossible) to get 5 PP to buy the porter and still be 1st level.

As long as you're not a Goblin Barbarian there's no need to rush.

When someone necros an old thread and you start an argument with one of the aliases you forgot you had.

At least now she has the fear of knives to keep her out of the back.

What was really funny is that the knife master in the party was the one that was setting up the marching order. I'd been dropping hints that someone that looked alot like him was asking about the party and even asked if he had a twin.

I often find myself going into threads that I've seen TOZ and Jiggy posting in.

I don't know if that's because they're favorites or they just post way too friggin much.

I had a couple of issues with this adventure

1) there is no 4 player scaling for the fights - nasty for 4 first level characters.

2) The boon mission has a static DC, for both subtiers, with bonuses for more experience characters (+2 for tales of fighting demons on rescuing/helping helpless). No modifiers for how well the PCs handled themselves (their case), especially for new characters.

More on the scaling.
A party of 4 1st level PCs that enter the house to "rescue" the hostage are pretty much losing a PC before the fight starts. What I mean by that is that Dalton is a 3rd level PC with enhanced sneak attack dice and a high stealth roll who is ambusing the PCs. So, the hidden Dalton gets a sneak attack on the first PC that passes in front of the door, in the surprise round.

PC is flat footed vs +6 attack roll, and takes 1d4+2d8, average of 12 damage. This will drop most 1st level PCs - so leaving a player with nothing to do in the first fight, and likely still hurt when the second on starts.

I would suggest that this not be run for new characters - a bit of extra gear, like a wand of Cure Light Wounds would be helpful for groups without healers - and having a better chance of redeeming Inquisitor Ekira.

We had a first level aasimar character playing in the high tear. The party left her in the back as they went up one side of stairs. The player had run it the week before and he was trying to think of a good non-gm knowledge reason why he shouldn't be in the back. The PC was dropped to 3 points from death. Then the party left that character exposed again and he was knocked down just as hard. And here I am on the boards talking about setting up games to destroy aasimar/tiefling characters as a joke. :p

This is starting to remind me of the scenario I ran last night...Scars of the Third Crusade.

It seems like they intended the birth of a bunch of aasimars and tieflings at the end of season 5.

Player says: Is that dice cocked?
Player means: It's a 20 can I keep it?

Shadow Lodge *

I didn't pay to much attaintion to the Behir because I had assumed the players would blast it from a distance, mainly the Divine Hunter Paladin. The sorcerer imidiately started climbing up the rubble when I described it.

A lot of mythic power was burned in that encounter.

Shadow Lodge

Inspired from another thread not GM Says GM Means, but on topic. :p

Players Say: Oh good, you're refreshed and ready to GM again.
Players Mean: I can't wait to get back under this guy's skin.

They flung their keyboards into the monitor first.

YES!

That said, access to some way of verification for what players have played or GM’d what would be much easier than maintaining a spreadsheet of regular players & tick marks next to the names of scenarios & modules played/ GM'd. :)

if anything, I'm suspicious of Brazil's team. To me, and this is just me, it really looks like they took a dive.

Everything Aeglos and GeraintElberion said is absolutely right. I just wanted to say that your suspicion is probably fruit of cultural barriers. Brazil's team was under a lot of pressure and completely devoted to this Cup; in fact, I can`t remember a line-up that was more commited to it in the recent past, to a point of severe emotional instability. What happened right after the first German goal was a complete psychological collapse of the whole team, which wasn't that good in the first place.

Based on the aforementioned math and on a deep understanding of Brazilian culture and displays of emotion, I can tell with 100% certainty that Brazil did not take a dive.

I just want to find the guy willing to give seven points.

I thought the reward was that you always got to play what you want and didn't have to worry about getting a seat at the table.

I Blame Cosmo for Tel not knowing the only way to win The Game is not to play The Game.

I blame Cosmo for John not knowing the number one cause of losing The Game is trying to figure out how to win The Game and for not fixing the link to our The Game.

See what you started Conman! The thread had been resting silently, buried in the forum games section like the Tarrasque in whatever hidden cave it is sleeping in. Then you came in and poked it. Now it's running around, tearing up the countryside and making people lose the Game in ever increasing numbers. Great job man, great job. ;)

And dang it, I lost AGAIN!!!

Don't blame me. Blame Cosmo.

And I lost again.

Thanks Cosmo. :)

If Germany can get the extra point I will start calling it football.

If a high score is good, Norbert is a really sexy name.

Shadow Lodge

Back when I first started playing I think we just referred to the goalie as the slow kid.

Shadow Lodge

It's a supernatural ability.

Univision has quite a few memes for it here.

For some reason I like the high jump one the most.

Wights. At CR 3, they're supposed to be a "challenging" encounter for an APL 1 party.

Except the level drain is auto-kill on a 1st-level PC (remember there's no save to avoid taking the negative level; the save is to avoid it becoming permanent a day later, but it's too late by then if you're dead).

Level drain shouldn't be on the radar for 1st level. :/

You couldn't possibly be referring to a very specific encounter of a moderately famous Pathfinder dungeon that was approved for Society play.
Ha! I actually wasn't thinking of that when I posted, but it's definitely included!

wonders how many twins have walked back into that dungeon

Shadow Lodge

Now you have something to look forward to next week.

What no confidence Portugal will score 4 more goals?

The last time I played a witch was the kit for 2e. He was always refered to as Dr. Bombay.

It seems like instead of a reroll there should be some kind of attack bonus for falling prone.
