Yep, its a rarity for me to give up perception but it makes a refreshing change to play in such ignorance.

cheers

I haven't followed any of that playtest so I'm not yet jaded by the marketing. My gripes with Wotc show me again how cyclical this game is. I had the same experience being a regional director for TSR, filled with ups and downs.

And as for my investment in PF, I've kept my favourite first and second edition books in the past. Same with third ed. I'm sure it will be the same with Pathfinder. Things like the Gamemastery Guide are timeless, same with many of the early adventure paths such as Rise of the Runelords. So it seems a bit churlish of me to stick to my 2007 guns when this set of rules is so good. Its simplicity will mean more time for roleplay and so many less arguments over trivia in combat. I play a ninth level cleric of Erastil on Monday evenings and the sheer multitude of options in spells in Pathfinder is not enjoyable. Its becoming all about the numbers.

I'll never forget what WotC did but the old school rules of fifth harken back to a far more fun game. Last night I was asked to run something at the eleventh hour and we made characters in an hour and had a laugh for two.

Hey, I'm not here to argue or side against Paizo but these discussions convince me a little more of what truly matters to me.

So thanks folks.

Qadira

Nope.

But with an aligned bow, Varlis could be a different propostion, same for Emerion's rapier.

Qadira

I am truly torn by my excitement for 5E. Its hard to forgive what Wizards did to Dragon and Dungeon, even harder not to forget the way they forced Paizo to cancel all my old pdfs of original and first edition DnD in the space of 24 hours but it is so much more elegant than Pathfinder.

That character deaths game sounds like a bit of an ego trip.

Cheers

Qadira

Still think Res is a dwarf. Apologies.

2 people marked this as a favorite.

One of my twisted friends tells of the time that his wizard was the only one to survive a hard encounter. i think this was in 2nd Ed.

He managed to get the party home, surgically implanted a marble next to each heart then had them resurrected none the wiser. Meanwhile he bought a whole pile of shatter spells and let the DM know that if anyone transgressed against his wizard he would use a scroll on them.

Unfortunately I shall have to drop out, one more game, no matter how good conceptually is one too many, I'm afraid.

Good luck EltonJ and the rest of you chaps.

I'm no computer game bod, except maybe Baldurs Gate and Icewind Dale. And I do remember how hard docking was in Elite.

As for healing, my last campaign including no channeling magic for that very reason. Something Sigil did well in that town of undead was use attrition to get us down to our last spells and abilities.

But nothing seems to match the feel of a first edition level one wizard with one whole spell and a measly four hits.

cheers

Qadira

Aha! Nice catch.

I'll re-read everything in the morning, since I am on UK time and its late.

Cheers

3d6 ⇒ (4, 5, 6) = 15
3d6 ⇒ (1, 4, 4) = 9
3d6 ⇒ (2, 4, 2) = 8
3d6 ⇒ (3, 2, 4) = 9
3d6 ⇒ (4, 3, 6) = 13
3d6 ⇒ (3, 6, 1) = 10

Maybe a human? Can we take the alternate human racial bonus of 2 stat bonuses and an extra feat and skill?

Cheers

Qadira

I too bought my PHB today. Ran a couple of expeditions games and the simplicity of the system worked well. The PF guys kept saying ....but what about this.....but what about that.....no rule.....cool!

Enjoyed DMing alot.

Qadira

I feel ya, SB.

Qadira

me too.

Qadira

Sounds like a bad night at the table. Hope you guys get back to winning ways.

The groups I game with at the moment are some of the most grown up I've ever played with. No hissy fits or "look at me" attitudes. Everyone playing for fun.

Cheers Aidan

Qadira

3001!

Qadira

Have fun.

Qadira

Just to point out to anyone else reading these posts, scranford didn't actually come across as arrogant and insulting to me.

The way I saw it was that he just wanted us to think outside the numbers, something which many us weren't concentrating on. My opinion might be based on the fact we have gamed together for a fair few years and I know him as a class act.

For myself, I hope that fifth will be sufficiently roleplay orientated to make players think in terms of background, race and personality first and class combo second. Its hard to do when you are used to thinking about everything at once in Pathfinder.

Cheers

Qadira

Hi Gentlemen (and any ladies)

Zennor will take time (just like getting a PHB to an island in the English Channel).

But I'm looking forward to this alot. Got a good feeling about this edition.

Cheers

Qadira

Great.

Qadira

SB, is this not a Tyranny of Dragons game then? Is it Dragons Demand instead? I'm happy either way.

Cheers

Hmmm... which stat could I work with as a six on a Paladin?...

Brains?

Qadira

Apologies for the delayed reaction. I was on holiday too. Thank you for the time folks and I appreciate how hard it is to run a pbp game. It can feel a little like having a baby around, always needing to be looked after!

Take care and see you around.

Since I do not do much (if any) PFS games I am happy to go without that chronicle.

Cheers

So am I

Qadira

I am in favour of all that. Fifth edition warms the cockles of my heart.

Qadira

If you see this, Wellard, please add my congrats to Dave and Rob for their joint award.

cheers

Qadira

Cool, I've just finished GMing this sort of game. I used the second edition Vikings book from TSR to help with backgrounds and I only allowed two non humans and two spellcasters. Definitely interested, so lets see what the dice say.

2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 1) + 6 = 13
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 3) + 6 = 13
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 5) + 6 = 16
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 5) + 6 = 14
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 2) + 6 = 12
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 5) + 6 = 14

They look good. Will get back to you, Fendrith.

Cheers

Qadira

Kutsya do you mean literatively walked into a buzzsaw or figuratively. Oww either way.

Qadira

Take care TT. All the best to you and your family.

Andy

Qadira

Checking in too. Busy tonight with running final session of a viking game. Will post more when I can but for now thanks for the chance to game with everyone.

cheers

Well said Jeb, here here!

So that makes 18,15,14,13,13,12. Not bad at all.

I'll hit the books tomorrow and see what I can come up with. Lost both games where I played healers so maybe I might manage one of them. Remember playing a crusader of Mystra in 2e which had fighting, cleric domain and one arcane school. Felt great. Wonder if I can emulate that, maybe with an inquisitor?

cheers

Qadira

mdt, I appreciate your comments. Sometimes its hard to tell the different when you don't know or see the other players.

Erick is a hardcase. That's fine by Bedu. But Bedu is a true Arab gentleman and always sees the best in womenfolk. He rarely gets uppity. I am interested to hear how the others respond. what do Gavin and Kutsya feel?

Out of character your characterisation is tough and resourceful. It may help if you let us all make decisions as well sometimes? Especially if you do not want to be the self-appointed leader. Maybe that is why Tessa is having a pop at your ego all the time.

Anyway I'm fine with it all.

Mine is more like death by a thousand cuts. Barbie slash. Strawberry shortcake slash, nail polishing slash, fairy books slash. I go to work when I can for adult conversation and relaxation. Thankfully my little darling is heading for full time kindergarten school in September.

In the fall, my wife starts a one year education degree so time for me may become a bit of an issue as I return to more work as well. I don't know yet but her doing an extra 10 to 15 hours study every week will impact us.

Cheers

Qadira

Already done.

I agree. Luckily I am British Wot Wot!

Sorry Sam for all the mind changing. Jerrid is torn between the professional challenge of making an assassination attempt on the druid and the necessity of warning Crimmor in case it all goes pear shaped. In the end, Damien's comments about being cowards and Kev mentioned the sated stirges pushed him over the edge.

I would like Jerrid to become an assassin or at least an SAS style stealth killer. One day.

Cheers

Qadira

DM Hills, let us know if you want to end this please. Its hanging in the breeze at the mo. Not a great situation for anyone.

Qadira

As another player in DMG's games, I can vouch for Mark Thomas 66 too. I am sure many of the rest are good but he played in my viking game here on the boards.

cheers

Qadira

Not going anywhere soon. Good luck with the computer probs TT.

Well, I suppose the answer is to have every class ability be like a feat so that players can buy "abilities" when they level.

5. vs. .75 vs 1 BAB is 1 or 2 or 3 points
Increase in full caster level = 3 points, 3/4 cast (bard, etc) = 2 points, etc.
Other abilities (Woodland stride, trap finding, feats, bane, channel) would all have their own value. Yeh, this might be confusing for the uninitiated, but it would let all abilities have relevance and allow you to have that woodland loving warrior who knows some magic.

I am sure that this has been done in multiple systems. It really depends on how you want to play. If your goal is to be able to kill Demogorgon in 1 round, go with a min-maxed archer paladin. If you want to role play, put some charisma into your fighter and have fun.

I guess the real question is whether you want to win the game, or play the game.

That sounds like the 2nd Ed Option books. Where we quickly realised that clerics had the most points (80?) and so nominally we all played one, then took rogue or fighter skills.

Qadira

One month on. Kherg's out but thanks for trying to restart the game and see you chaps around.

Cheers

Qadira

Its a fun encounter and the snares got everyone busy rather than just unloading on Mr Bojangles.

By the way, I have heard that name related to ettercap before but I cannot remember where. Wracking my brain and maybe it will come back at some point.

My biggest concern was not letting him get away. He would have been a right pain had he run off.

Even so we are suffering with lots of ability damage.

Cheers

So now we start the Book of Grudges.

I think Travigan may be at the front of the line now.

Qadira

I'm not that keen on continuing, I'm afraid. Maybe my memory of the old school is rose tinted but the last encounter was not so much fun for me. More like a bad situation that got worse and worse until it started to claim lives. Plus I dislike "coming back from the dead" or captures when someone has been trying to kill us. If fact, any kind of return even from the raising dead spells are something I never use.

You put loads of effort in DM Tribute and there are plenty of players on the boards who I'm sure would be better suited to the challenges you present.

Under the circumstances, let's just say that Milhar died trying to reach Skirros, his cousin.

Thanks for the chance to play in your game. Please do not take this as a criticism, its more about the way I enjoy playing.

Regards
Andy

Gaming night plus I volunteered for trip to island with 58 seven year olds today. Will post tomorrow am.

Qadira

Ulfak can be swayed by some honesty from "snake-oil smenk".

Qadira

Swarm traits - Swarms do not threaten creatures, and do not make attacks of opportunity with their swarm attack.

Qadira

PF, I recently introduced the party to a high charisma barbarian (in a viking setting).He was named Drogar the Dashing and all manner of doors naturally opened for him. They soon saw the advantages of having his presence and it rubbed off on them.

Throw in potions, wands and belts (perhaps limited to daily usage) to boost Cha. So that they begin to appreciate how much better people treat them for a while.

Or like some vaguely mythic power make them all beautiful or charismatic for helping a divine being?

Then there is the rival party, all talented and normal, but with the personality to get others to help them. Looks and charm become just one more reason to hate them, but watching people do what they ask (or tell) could be instructive.

cheers

Qadira

The Vistani feels this place, he hates swarms and his training and spells do not prepare him for this battle.

His hand goes back and comes out with a flask of green bubbling liquid. Faintly acrid.

But that haze looks big compared to the glass bottle.
