I've run into a couple of hiccups on my PC but nothing major. When I pick anything up, the game freezes for maybe two seconds. Also last night the game booted me to the title screen and gave me a message about the frame rate not being suitable for multiplayer. There were no noticeable frame rate issues though.

I think it was just the gods reminding me that I get up for work at 4:45am.

Anyway, the game is super fun so far. I was a little surprised when I was able to beat the first boss on the first try, but then I was quickly dispatched by a shirtless old guy with a katana. So the difficulty seems to still be there.

Nope.
A 64 page Varisia book to go along with the rerelease would be pretty great.

That was Birthplace of Legends.

A 64 page Korvosa book however...

Birthplace of Legends was a player focused book and was only 32 pages. Korvosa actually already has a 64 pager. link.

Wow. Yeah. Gotta have this. My wife and I tore through the original CotCT AP in about a month, back when it was fairly new.

I *WAS* planning to cancel my AP sub after Hell's Vengeance, but if I want this in print and PDF, I'm better off extending my sub a couple more months! (Between the AP sub discount and the free PDF!)

Good play, Paizo. 8^)

You went through an entire AP in a month?! :-O

It took us at least two years to complete CotCT!

I've decided to withdraw from this game. I've been consistently having trouble "getting into" the story, which I originally thought had to do with having not started from the beginning, but as time goes on it doesn't seem to be changing. Maybe just a mismatch of communication styles or something? I'm not sure, but in any case, I'm basically feeling entirely detached and uninvested, and just going through the motions. My spot would be better filled by somebody else, and this spot where you're leveling seems as good a point as any to bring in a replacement. Thanks for giving me a shot, and I hope the campaign continues to provide lots of satisfaction for the rest of you.

Sorry to see you go Jiggy! Happy gaming!


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Hey, no sweat! I kinda figure investigative games like this are a little slower than actiony type games. We need a little longer to plan out our next move than fighter does to swing his sword after all.

I really like the game and am fine to push forward with three unless you wanted to recruit. i'd like to see where the story is going, so I would prefer this game over starting something new. That said, I'm always open to pretty much anything.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

I was actually thinking of Mavros! Using either the Tempest or War domains.

Let me know which way you're going. I was working up a cleric, but I'm fine going barbarian if you want it. I really don't have a preference. :)

Okay, sounds good. I'll figure on going cleric then.

Also DM Torillan: Once we've rolled, we are stuck with those numbers and can't opt for the array, right?


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Actually, looking at the make up of the group, I may go Minotaur Cleric.
What do you all think?

Looks like:
Dragonkin Sorcerer
Lizard Folk Rogue
Elven Fighter
Minotaur Cleric or Trollkin Barbarian

Am I missing anyone?

It also occured to me that I'm playing a fighter and a barbarian in two of my other games. Should probably switch it up a little. :-P


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

I'd like to throw my hat in as well! I was thinking maybe a trollkin barbarian? Let's see what the dice gods say:
4d6 ⇒ (2, 3, 6, 2) = 13 11
4d6 ⇒ (4, 6, 2, 6) = 18 16
4d6 ⇒ (4, 6, 3, 3) = 16 13
4d6 ⇒ (5, 2, 4, 2) = 13 11
4d6 ⇒ (4, 6, 1, 5) = 16 15
4d6 ⇒ (3, 2, 1, 2) = 8 7

Not terrible!

So James had some interesting things to say in the foreword of AP#102

NEW ADVENTURES BECKON!:

And with these words, I’ll be bidding adieu to these pages
for a time. While I’ll continue to play a part in the next
several Adventure Paths to come, I won’t be developing
them—they’ll be in the capable hands of Rob McCreary
(for Hell’s Vengeance), Adam Daigle (for Strange Aeons),
and Crystal Frasier (for an Adventure Path so new to us
that we’re still trying to figure out what to name it). I
may or may not return to the lead developer’s seat for
another Adventure Path down the road, but it won’t be
before a year and a half passes. I trust that you’ll enjoy
what Rob and Adam and Crystal have cooked up for
you—I’ve seen some of what they’ve got planned, and I’d
be lying if I said I wasn’t green with envy about some of
the toys they’re going to get to play with in the months
to come (particularly Adam and the Lovecraft-influenced
horrors of Strange Aeons). But I know that having a wider
range of developers guiding the voice and content of the
Adventure Paths as we stomp toward volume #200 will
not only keep things going strong, but will increase the
diversity and excellence of the adventures yet to play out
on your tabletop!
Of course... I do have plans for a particularly epic
Adventure Path that has long been close to my heart, one
that I’ve been eager to launch for nearly a decade now.
It’ll be a few more years until it sees print, but if it works
out, it’ll be worth the wait, and maybe—just maybe—
it’ll take players to a higher level than ever before. I’m
still formulating my master plan on exactly how to get
this done, but a big part of it will be having the help of
awesome developers like Rob, Adam, and Crystal!
In any event, thanks for saving Kintargo, and have fun
being bad in Hell’s Vengeance!

The house seems creepy, and she seems like she is living alone. A seven year old isn't smart enough to live by themselves. A seven year old would never make it on a deserted island, and neither would she in this situation.

As far as being evil? Remember the time when a few of us died and we were given the option to keep our character or make a new one? I'm not saying Jack became evil, but I did feel like it is something he would have done and he may have become death obsessive, as I'm the only player that knew what really happened to Jack.

Why would you think this kid is living alone? Maybe her parent is in the house, or out hunting and is stranded in the snow and needs help? You've got to be a little more careful than that, unless you are trying to be evil. And if that's the case, you may find yourself out a few traveling companions.

Happy new year to all!

Christmas eve/day was like 80 degrees here in Houston -- after spending the last 3 winter holidays in Pittsburgh, I'm totally fine with that! If I never see snow again, that will be soon enough for me.

It was like 60 on Christmas this year. My sister had family over and we just hung out on her deck. It was super weird.

Oh, we were talking a bit up thread about the differences between 5th ed and 3.5/Pathfinder. Well somebody actually started a new thread about that very subject.

Linky.

Yeah, I haven't been around for long, but loving it so far!

Freddy is happy to show Dr. Udko his way around a gun. Not sure what I'll do with my build points yet. Still have to look things over.

I have a cat who loves Scotch, to the point where I can't have a glass and put it down, or he'll drink it. Since I read somewhere that alcohol is highly toxic to cats, I'm not thrilled about his expensive taste in beverages.

And his favorite food? Plastic grocery bags. Ugh.

Is that Bonzer?

I would have Aldern continue killing until the PCs stop him. They may even Orik's corpse mutilated and strung up on the outskirts of Sandpoint. He would make a perfect sacrifice, greedy mercenary that he is..

It occurred to me that I had no idea how I was going to qualify for the Paladin class, so after re-figuring it out, I'm going to put this here so that I remember.

Future Jamie; take the Protective Spirits rage power at 2nd level and the Serenity feat at third level.

I'm still slowly reading through the rules. Not a lot of free time, and the fact that 5E isn't radically different than any other d20 game, it's not exactly exciting reading. I would love to see a summary of how 5E is different than 3.5, honestly. I think that's all I'd need.

I hear ya. Unfortunately, I'm terrible at making lists like that. This thread does a good job at pointing out some of the differences, particularly any post by Jiggy.

I hope so too! I do plan to multiclass to paladin when possible, but that's not really bailing on the class.

Cool, I've been thinking of starting up a 5e pbp at some point. Still not sure of when or what I would want to run, but I figured I would check interest with you guys first.

Andostre wrote:

I hear good things about it, but I haven't reviewed the system, any.

I usually don't care about the game system as long as keeping track of all of rules isn't too much of a brain drain.

You can check out the basic version of the rules here.

It's fairly simple as far as d20 games go, so the brain drain should be pretty minimal.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Hey, any of you fine folks interested in 5ed?


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

It's funny, I thought I warned all of my pbp games about that a couple weeks back. It turns out that I only gave one of them the heads up, but I did it twice.. sigh.

Spoiler:
It'll be a bit before we can get those logistics down, but I am super excited to make that happen!

Sorry for the absence guys, work has been driving me bonkers. Looks like it should clear up soon though.

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Modules Subscriber

Yeah, I think there are some problems with the 5th edition versions.
Here are a few:

Spoiler:
Skill check DCs are a big one. I saw a couple of DC 30s in there, which is just about impossible in 5th edition unless you're very high level. The ettercap references the Pathfinder Bestiary. There are a lot of +1 magic items for a 5th ed adventure, including a +1 vicious dagger, which I don't think exists anymore. Vuelib uses a full round action for something and those are gone too.
