Well the young man told you were they were and where he thought they were headed. You might want to check Galduria and see whats left of it. That is if you trust mr NPC lol.


Sorry about the confusion guys I have posted a map in the campaign info section of the game. It can also be found here. The young man mentioned he was from Ravenmoore which has been leveled by giants and he suspects they are about a day out of Galduria.


Gah...I hate geography lol. I was right before the giant army is about 5 days out.


Zaphkiel:
Shayless frowns but nods her head "Thank you Zaphkiel. I assume you have other business to attend to? Well I'll leave you to it. I'm just glad nothing is wrong." She smiles at him and shows him to the door and then gets right back into bed.


"I was from a small town about 5 days from here...the name of it was Ravenmoore"[/b] "If you want to meet them they should be in Galduria in a day. Should be about 7-8 days out from Sandpoint." Thankfully I was able to get here quickly. My name is Peven by the way. Mrs. Mayor I would like to request aslym with in your walls please...my family is gone so there is nothing for me to go home to but heart break." The mayor grants his request and then asks if there is anything else that you need her for. If not she will get him settled in.


Kendra will take Brevon's hand and offer him a weak smile as she guides him through the house.

As Cael arrives and embraces her she stiffens slightly and then sags into the embrace. "Being here for our guests is what father would want me to do. He'd want me to remember the lessons he taught me..." her words trailed off and tears came to her eyes but she wiped them away harshly with the back of her hand.

When Lucetta arrives she nods her head "Yes he will...deeply and dearly be missed..." at the request for brandy Kendra laughs for a moment a bright smile coming to her face. "Excuse my outburst lass...that was fathers favorate drink...so many fond memories of him drinking and studying late into the night. There were even a few times I had to carry him to bed...though I shouldn't speak so ill of the dead" she blushes and turns on her heels to get you a drink. "Straight or on the rocks" she'll call over her shoulder.

Returning with the drink and Kavakii in toe she quickly disappears again to get him some tea. Shes gone for longer than expected and anyone who pays attention can hear soft weeping coming from the kitchen.


"Red I believe and no clue where the stone giant wizard is I keep my distance from him or any of his associates...rumor has it he murdered his entire family. I know he has interest in old magical ruins but I'm not familiar with Sandpoint enough to tell you exactly what he might be after. Isn't it full of thassilonian ruins?"

Oh and siobhan your pretty sure its safe now and the effect of your curse wears off.


Keep this train going. I live in Missouri though I grew up outside of Chicago and went to school at University of Wisconsin-Platteville. While there I majored in Mathematics and attempted minors in computer science, philosophy, psychology, history, and education. I've been playing table top games for about 15 years now. Right now I'm trying to get into a PhD program in Mathematics.


Zaphkiel:

"I feel light headed and dizzy sometimes and I'm still getting sick in the mornings...I thought that was supposed to stop by now. I also feel really drained...not to mention having to use the privy more often. The no monthly flow has been a nice sideeffect though. And its been kicking about every half an hour for a couple seconds and then stops...feels like he's just trying to get comfortable in there. The breast tenderness is getting old...could you rub them for me? That darn priest at the church refuses."

As far as you can tell the baby is healthy and progressing well. Her heart rate is elevated slightly compared to yours but that is to be expected. She checks out normal.


"Ameiko? What happen...oh oh right I remember now...sorry little foggy this morning. Thank you for getting breakfast going...do we have any tea or coffee ready?"


As you approach the house you knock on the door and the late professor's daughter opens the door for each of you. "Thank you for coming...I know it would mean a lot to father to have you here. Come lets go sit in the sitting room while we wait for the others to arrive." She will guide you through a very long hallway stacked floor to ceiling with books and papers and treaties that the professor had collected over the years. The hall just wide enough for you to pass through with out bumping any of the books. She shows you the way to a sitting area and offers you a seat. "Anything to drink?" she asks, brushing a tear away from her cheek. As you take a closer look at her she is a thin tall woman in her mid to late 30's. She seems to be holding it together as best as she can, which isn't very well. She seems to be on the verge of tears but won't let them out in front of guests.

Glad you liked it Brevon. Don't worry this isn't the only time I'll be using the information provided to spook you guys lol.

@Kavakii-Where in Wisconsin? My father is from Lake Mills, we used to have a summer home near Nekoosa(in Rome actually but no one ever knows where that is) and I went to UW-Platteville for my undergrad. I'm also a die hard packer fan lol.


The giant reluctantly moves forward and comes up next to Malcolm. "Careful with those arrows they're lodged deep...your friend behind the bush was a good shot as are you." As Malcolm is healing him Wargrym. "As far as I've heard its just stone giants though if you have heard of a dragon...then I know who you face. His name is Teraktinus. He's rumored to work for a very powerful stone giant wizard. If your getting tangled with him...well I wouldn't if I were you."


A servent comes in with some sugar water and hands it to Garrosh who then carefully pours it in the Mayors mouth. She slowly comes to. Wha...what..." she mumbles and then sits bolt straigt up on the couch "What is going on here...oh right...sorry walking up to that lovely face Garrosh...its a little jarring. I do appologize." her eyes scan the room and she looks at the man covered in blood. "Who's he?"


No honestly it was just a numbers game that you didn't get selected. Sorry Davor.


Game play thread is up! Hope you all like how I started this.


It is the night before the Professors funeral and some of you are having very very interesting dreams.

Barek Noson:

You are standing in front of a large group of people. They all stare at you, mouths wide. It takes a moment but you realize something...you are with out any clothing on. You stand in front of them naked, scares exposed. You try your best to cover up but they have seen your scars. The ones who aren't totally horiffied by your burns start to point and laugh at you, taunting you. And then you feel it...the all to familiar burn in your scars...and the room goes up in flames.

Tamara:

You are in a tiny cell like room tied and chained to a chair. You are being interrogated by a figure shrouded in darkness. It seems familiar to you but you can't quite place it at first. The figure looms over you and reaches up to strike you in the face. As the hand connects with your cheek there is a bright flash of light and the figure is no longer in darkness. It's Gerund Veldar that has you tied up and is now cocking back for another blow to your face. As he reaches back he says "Look what you did, look at all the harm you have done, everyone is dead thanks to you". He strikes you hard, turning your face to the side and beside you lay the bodies of Hedwig Sentara, Martin Ulabotar, and worst of all Barek Noson.

Gwendolyn McBride:

You are in a pitch black cave and search as you might you can not find a source of line on your person. You stumble around a little and realize that the bottom of the cave is wet...very wet. Before you know it you are up to your knees and then waist in water. With still no light to be found you struggle to find your way out of this cave and then it starts. The voice...it makes your blood run cold. Baron Von Wolfsbane is calling to you. "Come to me my love...I miss you...come hold me one last time" the calls continue to taunt you and you struggle to find your way out of the water and the dark. Then you feel a hand pull you and it pulls you under water...

You all awake and when you look outside you see that its already daylight out. You take a moment to get your barrings and realize what today is. Today is the day of the funeral and you have been requested to be at the Lorrimore residence shortly.

Lucetta De Leon:

You are in a tiny cell like room tied and chained to a chair. You are being interrogated by a figure shrouded in darkness. It seems familiar to you but you can't quite place it at first. The figure looms over you and reaches up to strike you in the face. As the hand connects with your cheek there is a bright flash of light and she is no longer in darkness. It's your once trusted accomplice Jennva Donir that has you tied up and is now cocking back for another blow to your face. You strain and pull against the chains and rope as hard as you can but they only constrict further, your hands going numb from the lack of blood flow. The room begins to shrink as she once again connects with your face and then you hear a voice in the distance shouting to you. You recognize it as the late professor and he's telling you to not give in to her.

Kavakii:

You are in a coffin with another dead body on top of you. It isn't facing you so your not sure who it is but he/she seems familiar to you. After a few minutes of struggling you find that the coffin lid isn't opening and you have a distant memory of the sound of dirt being pored over the lid. Panic starts to streak through you as you realize you were buried alive. And if things couldn't get worse the body on top of you reanimates and opens its maw wide to bite you. As it turns to sink its teeth into your neck you realize that it is none other than your uncle, Draylan Gossamar. He turns and buries his teeth deep in your neck.

Brevon:

You are in a pitch black cave and search as you might you can not find a source of line on your person. You stumble around a little and realize that the bottom of the cave is wet...very wet. Before you know it you are up to your knees and then waist in water. With still no light to be found you struggle to find your way out of this cave and then it starts. The voice...it makes your blood run cold. Zelara is calling to you. "Come to me my love...I miss you...come hold me one last time" the calls continue to taunt you and you struggle to find your way out of the water and the dark. Then you feel a hand pull you and it pulls you under water...

Gadoongo:

You are in a very long hallway lined with mirrors. As you start down the hallway the reflections start to shift until you are looking at what you fear most, your true beastial self. You snarl and spit at the reflection. As you lash out at it with your fist the image shifts to that of your Father, Kotro. Your fist falls to your side as fear washes over your entire body and you lock up, unable to move. Then behind him in the mirrior is an image of your mother, hanging with a rope around her neck. But she's not dead...she speaks to you. "See you soon my love".

Cael:

You are in an old dusty crypt, looking for something however you aren't sure what. You go deeper with in and then suddenly you hear the door to the crypt slam shut and a loud booming voice rings out in your head. "Hope you enjoy my surprise for you Cael...maybe this time your screams won't walke up half a dormatory." You instantly recongize the voice as Martin Broadcloak's. As the light in the crypt is snuffed out you hear another scream from deeper with in. This time its a woman, though you recognize her voice instantly. You run towards the voice as you are sure your love, Marjorie, is calling out to you. You reach her just in time to see that she's in a room, tied to a table, that is starting to fill with all sorts of insects.

You all jolt awake and when you look outside you see that its already daylight out. You take a moment to get your barrings and realize what today is. Today is the day of the funeral and you have been requested to be at the Lorrimore residence shortly.


...this is what I get for drinking while checking game posts...orange soda hurts when it sprays through the nose because your laughing so hard...thanks Shaeda...

AWESOME!!!!!

Thank you so much. I am super excited about playing through this AP.

GM, let me know if there is anything I can do to help. I know how much work running an AP like this is. I'm really good with maps, it's kind of my specialty. But whatever you need. Don't be afraid to ask!

I HATE HATE HATE making maps so if you could do that for me that would be GREAT! Combat maps included if its not to much trouble.

Glad to be here. Thanks so much for selecting me. It's ok to chose Barek as the target of Lovesick right?

No thats fine it will be interesting to have two love birds and a pair of siblings together in the same group.


Game play thread is up for those of you who want to dot it so it shows in your active games. I will get an actual scene up eventually...going to take some time as I want to customize it for each of you.


And game play thread is up for dotting I will get an actual scene up shortly just going to take a little time since I want to personalize it for all of you. But if you want to dot it so it shows up in game play for everyone please feel free to do so.


Game play thread up for dotting. I will get an actual post up later it will just take a little doing since I want to customize it for all of you.

Group two your discussion thread can be found here


Hello and welcome aboard Sim, Sam, Tamara, Barek, and Gwendolyn. I am really really looking forward to getting this going and interweaving your individual backgrounds into the game. Please post here your final builds. If you have any questions please let me know and I will do my best to answer them. I will be available for the next 3 hours to answer any questions or to simply chat. If you are new to the boards and this is your first play by post game please let me know and let the others here welcome you to one of the best places for games on the interwebs.

For those of you who are ready to play I will try and get a gameplay thread up for you to start posting in. If your not ready please don't feel rushed or pressured its just I don't want those who are done to get bored...post when ready.


and of course for the first time in like a week its actually busy at work today...


I'd be ready to start today but if others need a little more time to get things settled we can push back to tomorrow. I think I'll throw up a gameplay thread and those of you ready can role play a little while we wait for anyone who isn't. Need to get more PM's sent out to those selected and get a discussion thread up for the second group yet so it might be a little bit.


Group 1 you discussion thread is live and attached to this recruitment thread.


Hello and welcome aboard Lucella, Kavakki, Brevon, Gadoongo, and Cael. I am really really looking forward to getting this going and interweaving your individual backgrounds into the game. Please post here your final builds. If you have any questions please let me know and I will do my best to answer them. I will be available for the next 3.5 hours to answer any questions or to simply chat. If you are new to the boards and this is your first play by post game please let me know and let the others here welcome you to one of the best places for games on the interwebs.


For those of you who are curious here is what you are facing. Please don't mix player knowledge with character knowledge. You the player might know what type of giant he is now but your characters do not. All you know is he's rather well spoken for his kin.


The giant roars out in frustration at Wargrym's words. "Oh you attacked me on accident huh...I'm just walking along minding my own business and you lot start attacking me. How do you think that makes me feel?" At Malcolm's words he scoffs "So just because I'm 20 feet tall you attack me on sight...if you haven't noticed Sandpoint is in the opposite direction then where I was headed...though I guess I can understand your position. I however have no qualms with Sandpoint...though I have heard of talk of Stone Giants gathering against it recently."


First off thank you all for applying. There were many great applicants and choosing was difficult. As I mentioned before I've decided to run two groups through this.

Group 1:
Lucetta De Leon
Kavakii Zhen
Brevon Sabor
Gadoongo Heineous
Cael Vysorin

Group 2:
Sim Calinean
Sam Calinean
Tamara Hart
Barek Nosun
Gwendolyn McBride

Will those selected please make your way over to the respective discussion threads once they are put up please and also dot in the respective game play threads as well(once up).

I will be PMing those selected as well that way if they don't check in here they will not they've been selected.


Lol

Zaphkiel:

The man ponders for a moment and then nods. "She needs to stick to her word...which she doesn't do very well...maybe you can compel her to do so. She knows what happens if she doesn't. I'll leave you two alone to examine her. If I hear any funny business however you will have some explaining to do to the constable." He then leaves the room.

Shayless looks up at Zaphkiel and smiles warmly. "You can untie me now please, I won't go anywhere. Do you need me undressed for the exam? her words drip with salacious intent.


The sheriff looks very puzzled as Rhis comes up and touches him on the throat. As she returns to her seat he clears his throat, the sound booming through the room.

"QUIET!!! he calls out, almost deafening everyone in the room. He blushes scarlet as he looks around the room confused at the sudden volume of his voice. "What did you do to me you little witch? he calls to Rhis. "Never mind I'll deal with you later. As I was saying I am reinstating the bounty for the goblins. Those brave enough to partake will receive 10 gold pieces for every relatively fresh goblin ear they bring to me. If you can bring in the head of the Licktoad chieftain I will give you 300 gold pieces. That is all." He then walks right up to Rhis. "What did you do to me?" he asks far more loudly then he means to.

The waiter finally comes over with Rhis's coffee.


Okay guys everything's looking good. I am closing the recruitment thread now. As I said before we have enough for two tables so I'll be running two groups. My selections will be up later I need to read backgrounds and see what would be a good match for everyone.

Long rambling post short Recruitment Closed


hey Wargrym can I get a diplomacy roll from you and anyone who can speak common or giant right now can try to help.


The young man seems a little off put by Garrosh's kid words. "...thanks...I guess. Um with her unconsious who do I talk to about seeking refuge here?"


Nope but I'll be closing things down and making selections tomorrow so...


Journals found here are also good reading material for when work is slow lol.

Presenting Cael Vysorin, elven arcanist, Acadamae Assistant Professor of General Studies, and old friend of Professor Lorrimor.

The actual background stuff will come later today, figured I'd get him submitted sooner rather than later.

Perfect! I will get him added to the list shortly. Need to respond to some PM's first.


Derric wrote:

That's cool. I'm actually liking these NPCs and how you're portraying them. I really like how Shalelu put Derric on the spot by stating that his signs of affection for Ameiko are quite obvious! Lol! I couldn't stopped laughing when I read that. Good one!

Speaking of affection, are we using the Relationship and Romance Systems as well as the Caravan system featured in the Player's Guide? I was concerned by the fact that I've read (back when I was got into Pathfinder and Jade Regent just came out) that some people were upset because of the Diplomacy DC to start a romance with a NPC is 10 + the NPC’s level + the NPC’s Charisma modifier. That's quite a big DC there and that was actually the main concern of multiple people. Are you altering this rule or something? Just curious mainly.

Also, I feel like the caravan rules look good. It adds a bit of uniqueness in my opinion but what about the rest of you?

And yeah Shalelu being similar to Sgt. Calhoun from Wreck-It Ralph...I can see that.

I also doubt I'll be able to take Derric's mount, Blaze, with us into the swamps.

Oh by the way, Derric is actually short. He's 5'0" while Ameiko is 5'6", or so I've been told.

Also, and this is something I'm doing with my Hell's Rebels character: journal entries. I figure that it might add more depth to my character, but I wanted to ask if y'all were okay with it first. I would put them in spoilers of course so as not to clutter things or create a page long wall of text (or in my case: a two page wall of text!).

Yes I will be using the relationship builder. I might throw together an excel sheet to track relationship scores and such later today or sometime this week. I'll also be using the caravan rules once we get to that point. And I am for journal entries and there is actually a different part of the site dedicated to those entries that way you don't clutter your posts with them.

I am working on a wizard to help fill in the gap. I'll try to get him in here later today.

Thank you very much!

We're still waiting on the halfling twins to submit their characters also, right?

Yes


Lets see how Rhis react's to this...


Rhis you see a server with your coffee's on a tray standing to the side of the room waiting for the sheriff to finish speaking before she delivers them. However the noise in the room is preventing the Sheriff from finishing, thus keeping you from your much loved and needed coffee.
