So, our villains foiled my evil plan... by not doing something I (and Thorn) completely expected them to do.

Spoiler:
They've been trying to find Thorn's phylactery. For the previous two sessions, they had their minions looking for information, to see if they could dig up anything. They had thus far been unsuccessful, but it was mostly through bad luck (i.e. terrible rolls).

I figured they would try again this last session, so their former master had planned a trap. He's been scrying them pretty much even since they entered his service, and only recently did they put some defenses into place. They would have found information, but it would have been planted and would have led them to a false phylactery trap.

Instead of using their minions to look for information again, though, they used them to make some money and shore up the defenses of their home base. :|

Then when they got the message from Barnabus Thrane about Sir Richard, they harrowed off after that lead. While there, they decided to use the library and some spells that they learned last level to find information on the (true) location of the phylactery.

This is relevant to my interests as well. Here's hoping a print edition comes out soon so I can give you my money. :D

And I reviewed it here, on RPGNow, and Amazon. :)

I'm also liking the description of Elias Mires.

Spoiler:
Did he take an arrow to the knee? XD

Things I like (so far, only about 1/3 of the way through the book):

The sidebar on Trust; Benefit of the Doubt; and Forgiveness (save me some face-palms XD )

The gods basically screwing over the dwarves, and the dwarves (understandably) effectively telling the gods to shove it. (Great source of conflict and RP ideas)

The random events and little side-quests to help build up relationships with the townsfolk.

Things I'd like to see:

Add me to the list of people who would have liked to have seen better descriptions of the new races.

I was going to suggest illustrations, also, but I got to page 56 and found the picture of Grezen, and so got a better idea of what a cheebat looks like.

I just got this, and was reading the sample puzzles. I noticed something, and didn't see anywhere that anyone else had. (Unless my search-fu is bad.)

On the I never lie puzzle, (correct me if I'm wrong) the suggested solution question won't work.

Here's the set-up. Two doors, one leads to danger, one to safety; two guards, one always lies, one always tells the truth.

The question that's suggested is: If I asked you if the door you're guarding leads to safety, would you say yes?

The problem is (and again, correct me if I'm wrong) they'd both reply yes.

Other than this, great book.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

Just started looking through this, and it will be incredibly helpful, so thank you.

Also, found a spelling mistake in the Innocence spell description.

It says trus2rthiness rather that trustworthiness.

Still technically correct, in a way, though. :P

My group just had the meetings with Tiadora and sisters; and Dessiter and Naburus.

The first one went brilliantly for them; in that they managed to kill Tiadora and all her sisters. Tiadora was pure luck, in that a number of them got attacks of opportunity on her just before she was going to teleport out, and most of them managed big crits and dropped her to -25 or so. Thorn's going to have a pretty good idea of what happened when none of them show back up, plus none of them have figured out that he has been scrying on them.

The meeting with Nabarus, not so much.

They had their party spokesman (a Mighty Godling with a 22 CHA and hefty expenditures in social skills) do the talking about their great deeds. That part went well enough.

Spoiler:
Then came the part about who should be the new High Priest (or Priestess) of Asmodeus. The Favored Soul of Loviatar got it in her head it should be her, as she was the only clerical type in the group. And, while she is normally the most arrogant person on the planet, which could have helped her immensely in this instance, she dropped the ball. She was precisely what Naburus was not looking for, equivocating and timid. -_-

This just after I eated all the cookies (Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip) I made.

Is there a connection?

I'm not saying. >_>

The party were fighting a sorcerer, and were all too close for the party's wizard to risk casting most of his spells (most of them are attack spells, and with so many people in melee, he's risk hitting one of the other party members). However, he did have some cantrips available, specifically, Shadow Bite.

The wizard cast the Shadow Bite on the sorcerer. On a failed Fort save, it forces a Concentration check if the target is casting a spell (he wasn't), 50% chance to make them drop anything they were holding (empty handed), and makes them fall prone if standing, or stand if prone.

I knew there was next to no chance of success, with the sorcerer's Fortitude save, and the low save DC of the cantrip, he'd only fail on a one, but the wizard went ahead rather than sit around doing nothing.

I roll the save. 1. -_-

So, he basically cause the sorcerer to experience the effects of a bite, on shall we say, a sensitive area, and the guy fell prone. Which gave the rest of the party some nice bonuses to hit and let them finish him off that much quicker.

You also might look into Horrorclix: The Lab.

I just got my authorization email, and the Pathfinder RPG: Strategy Guide wasn't in the order. I know I ordered it, because it's been sitting in my pending orders since November. :)

Can someone poke it and see what's holding it up?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

Currently, I'm working on a Clockwork Chibi Pony from Impact Miniatures, latest Kickstarter, and a Reaper Bones Bat Swarm.

I'll post some pics once they're done.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

My players always leave their character sheets at my place. I've never asked them to, it just makes the most sense for all involved. However, I also don't have any shenanigans happen to the characters between sessions

Using an extraordinary ability is usually not an action because most extraordinary abilities automatically happen in a reactive fashion. Those extraordinary abilities that are actions are standard actions unless otherwise noted.

A spell-like ability has no verbal, somatic, or material component, nor does it require a focus or have an XP cost. The user activates it mentally. A spell-like ability takes the same amount of time to complete as the spell that it mimics (usually 1 standard action) unless otherwise stated.

Using a supernatural ability is a standard action unless noted otherwise.

I ban bans, but not Ban.

I'd model her after Steven Wright.

Erik did say in the blog:

“In a manner of speaking”, when his work colleagues asked him if the chest opened up. So it sounds like it may open up in some aspect.

I figured he was referring to the mimic in the set.

Because the release date for the hardback got moved.

I'm beginning to think this book is never going to come out. T_T

That's the 5th edition version of the spell, the original text is closer to what's in the link I provided upthread. The effects in the one I linked are the same as the second edition one.

Here's a link to what appears to be a version of Chromatic Orb (along with several other spells) updated to 3rd edition D&D rules.

Yes, using the feat you prepare the spell with it ahead of time, if you are a caster that prepare spells. So, for example, a Magic Missile using the Silent Metamagic feat, would be a Silent Magic Missile and would be placed in a second level slot.

Rods you use as you cast the spell, so if you had a rod of Lesser Silent Metamagic, you could cast any of your 1st through 3rd level spells as a Silent spell, but only 3 spells/day.

Would smurfs be tiny or diminutive?

Sumrfs are three apples high (which looks to be about 6" from what I can tell from the pictures of Gargamel having caught some), so diminutive.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

I smurfed a smurf, but the smurf I smurfed, wasn't the smurf I smurfed I smurfed. If the smurf I smurfed I smurfed had been the smurf I smurfed I wouldn't have smurfed so much.

New update on our villains' shenanigans.

Spoiler:
Our villains are in Eiramanthus's lair on the mission from Chargammon. In the brass dragon's lair, they encountered the Carnivorous Crystals. During the fight, the godling used his divine weapon, which does sonic damage to attack the oozes. He gets three attacks, which resulted in a hit, and two critical hits. The first hit followed by the critical downs one (doing enough damage to kill it and thus avoid the splitting), and crit result included transposition, which caused him and the now dead crystal to switch places on the battlefield.

This left him in position to reach the final crystal, which was also critted. This crit resulted in petrified, which after a failed Fortitude save, turned the crystal to stone. O_o

Thank you.

Has anyone come up with a good way to store/organize the cards? I am trying to figure out a way to both make them accessible during play and in between sessions.

You could sleeve them up and put them in a CCG deckbox (something like a Command Tower Deck Box). Then, if you want to make it easier to find some you use often, you can attach some Post It Tabs to the sleeves on the cards.

You know the DM is out to get you when the party encounters 13 wandering Asmodai.

Spoiler:
A group of 13 of Asmodeus.

One of the guys I used to play D&D with in college was fond of that one.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

For Eternal Wands, you needed both Craft Wand and Craft Wondrous Item. I'd suggest going a similar route with this, i.e. require both Scribe Scroll and Craft Wondrous Item to make them.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

Thank you.

I'm having the same trouble Ross is. My subscription is showing as being shipped Priority Mail. It's fine if that's the way it has to be shipped, but I thought I'd let you all know in case it was supposed to be fixed and wasn't somehow.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

I figure the damage dealt is negative energy damage.

As to if it were wielded by undead, reading the spell description again makes me think that (at most) the target would take damage equal to the relevant ability modifier of the caster.

My reasoning is that, since undead (and undeadish, like dhampirs) take no damage from negative energy, there is no damage there to be shared. However, since it adds the ability modifier to the damage suffered by the target, they would suffer that. (0 + x = x)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

This is relevant to my interests. XD


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

We're playing mostly 3.5 rules, with a few added Pathfinder things (traits, the Mighty Godling class, and a few spells, mainly).

So, in our last session we had a fine example of tag team chicanery.

Minor spoiler:
The vampire Favored Soul of Loviatar and drow Rogue/Red Mantis Assassin teamed up to trick a group of monsters making a shakedown attempt.

Neither are especially focused on social skills, though they both have fair values in Bluff (a 15 and 10, respectively).

So, a group of bugbear, ogres, and an ettin, all members of the army the PCs are allied with, decided to try to shake them down. The monsters were in way over their heads, as the PCs are 13th level. I expected them to just destroy the fools and move on. Little did I know...

The biggest (and dumbest) ogre, demands a toll of 50 gold apiece from the PCs and their assorted cohorts/minions/hangers-on. The vampire, pretending to be confused, successfully bluffed the ogre into thinking they (the PCs) didn't know what gold was. The ogre pulled out a handful (17 gold) of coins, and showed them. The drow (with his Sleight of Hand skill of 15, proceeds to try to steal the gold out of the ogre's hand while he's talking to the vampire.) He rolls a 2, but even with the +10 bonus for the spotting obvious theft, fails to spot the drow take the money. He is confused as to where his money went.

The drow then proceeds to attempt to pay the toll, with the ogre's own money, and bluff him into thinking they gave him more than what he demanded. One decent bluff roll by the drow, and abysmal sense motive check by the ogre convinces him that since 7 is obviously more than 5, 17 gold is more than 50.

The PCs go on their way, but I have a feeling the band might figure it out eventually and confront the PCs at a later date.
