Haren of the Jungle vs. Sluggy the Spanker

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Sluggy the Spanker! Oh my gosh, that's greatness! Man that's just funny. Brings tears to my eyes. Good one, Joana. :)

While I don't really get the whole "penalty" thing(that really doesn't make a lot of sense to me. And when I say that I literally mean I don't understand it. I'm not trying to come across as snarky, I promise) I can understand on a different front why making a new character isn't desirable.

There's this movie called: The Gamers: Dorkness Rising. These gamers are playing DnD and their game gets played out theatrically in a DnD setting while they play at home. Obviously it's a goofy movie. Anyway there's this one dude who decides he wants to play a bard. Well, he typically plays the tough guy but he wanted to go a different route. Well, his bard got killed so he pulled out his other bard. His bard got killed again so here comes sheet #3 with same bard. Eventually there's a pile of bard bodies because he keeps getting killed and he yells: "Bring it on! I got 50 more character sheets to go!" or something like that. While most of the movie is fairly dumb, that cracked me up.

Anyway, I guess where I'm going with that is, just to continually slap out a new character when yours dies, isn't very much fun. To me, if you like the pc and everything about it, enjoy how it gels with the other player's pc's, then it's no fun to have to replace it.

It's one thing if you don't like the character or if it just doesn't click for you or whatever, then sure, try something new. But if you do like it then it makes it tough to replace it.

I can tell you this, I was in DW's Kingmaker game and I played a ranger named Kriger. I can honestly say, if he would've died(and he nearly did several times) that would've been the end of the game for me. He was an absolute blast. There would be no way I could've ever replaced him. No way.

Anyway, I know most folks on these boards have no problem throwing away an old character and simply slapping out a new one and that's fine. But to me, that seems to make it a lot less personal and simply more of a token going around a board game. Which, to me, is boring. If I wanna do that I'll play Monopoly. :)

When it comes to the pc's I find a groove with(there are some that never panned out) I work on putting life into them as best I can because it's fun for me. And to just toss it to the side and replace it with another would be difficult if not impossible.

But that's just me and my take on it.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Yeah, thanks for giving it a go, Aku. Sorry it didn't work out. Especially for dien and thunderbeard who just joined. Those were some good characters.

Having said that, I liked all the characters and all of you folks are some really good posters. Maybe I'll catch up with some of you in another thread someday.

Be good!

Okay, I think I'm updated.

Skill point in Perc, Surv, Stealth. 3 in Acrobatics.

1 point dexterity

Still have to add a 2nd level spell. Will try and get to that tomorrow.

Adaptations: Darkvision, Natural armor +2

That's pretty much it I believe.

LOL - this is reminding me of that new Geico commercial where the people are like:

"Should we take the running car to get away?"

LOL! Oh man this commercial is great! Those GEICO commercials are so dang funny.

The killer dude is behind them all rolling his eyes at how stupid they are.

The ending is good too:

As they take off running, one girl yells: "Let's head for the cemetery!"

That commercial cracks me up just thinking about it. :)


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Okay, I gotta say, this place is straight out of Jason/Freddie/Saw/Chainsaw Massacre all combined. This is just way horrific. I mean, straight up sick. Absolutely disgusting to the absolute extreme.

You paint a heck of a picture, Old Guy. Props for that.

I think I'll stop reading Old Guy's posts until we get past this. I keep having to close my eyes during the scary parts anyway. ;)

8000! Dang. We sure don't have that much.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Well that truly does suck. I liked the opposite ends of the spectrum that was Lothan and Tyrrol. Reminded me of the show The Odd Couple.

One dude's a goof off and the other was dead serious all the time. Truly was a great combo(in my opinion anyway). Dang I sure hate to see it end. Gonna miss it.

Looks like ol' Phillip's just hard to kick to the curb and keep him there. I guess the best way I could see him explain it is THIS. ;)

I've been meaning to mention this - I might've already but I don't remember - but I think the Phillip avatar resembles... I'll let you all determine which one you think he looks like. :)

Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Man, Thom, I've never seen heal rolls like that either. Those are unbelievable.

Not only did you roll the 3 eight's and 1 seven, but on the first heal roll you rolled, it was also a seven. Add 'em together and you get a full house. :)

That is pretty amazing though. If I rolled that like that I think the Paizo servers would crash because they wouldn't know how to act if I rolled that well. ;)


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Sorry, saw the post and told myself I'd get back to it. I completely forgot. My bad.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

The few times we've used divination in my group back in the day has always been a headache. What questions to ask, how to word them, blah, blah, blah. Man I would just rather avoid this altogether.

I'm never real sure of how to actually word this stuff properly. I seem to always find an answer the dead person can shoot back at us which ultimately helps us zero.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

HA! That's greatness!

That reminds me of a pc I was running way back in the day. We were in this dungeon, and these dark dwarves(or derro, or whatever they were back in the day) were walking by, initially not noticing us. So my guy busted out with, "Excuse me, could you tell us how to get to so and so? We're kinda lost. Thanks."

His persona was of the friendly type. I mean absolutely friendly. The DM busted out laughing, and he asked: "Are you serious? Are you really gonna ask that? If I recall correctly, I think we got the crap beat out of us, but none of us died(at least I think). I had fun with that one.

On another occasion, the DM for the above scenario I just mentioned, was playing this cocky elf. He thought he was all big and bad. Anyway, we go into this bar, and he eventually makes his way up to this half-orc monk and starts talking trash to him. You know this half-orc is bigger, taller, meaner looking than him, but he goes up, pokes him in the chest, tells him he ain't going anywhere until he gets answers. (I can't remember why he did what he did being so long ago but that's the gist of it)

Well the half-orc was a monk. He got initiative, punched him in the face, and he went out like a light. One hit! The rest of us are like, "Um, sorry to bother you! Have a great day!" as we drug the unconscious form of the elf out of the bar.

Man we all just fell out on that one. Even he did. That was so dang funny.

Another pc I had, we were in combat and my rogue noticed this one guy with a cloak on. I told the others, "I got this one. You all take care of the others." with absolute confidence. He wasn't a cocky type, but he was confident. Well, he was pretty positive he was a wizard, seeing how he wore a cloak and no armor. Lo and behold if it didn't happen again. I proceeded to get the crap beat out of me because he was also a monk.

I mean round after round he was beating the crap out of me until I fell unconscious. I think one of the things I said(after like the second round of getting beat down) was, "I don't think this guy is a wizard." :P

I couldn't hit that dude to save my life. Just stand there and get beat into oblivion. Man that was funny. I couldn't help but laugh.

Good times.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

@DM: Any future rolls for aiding in something that would fit Thordak, you're more than welcome to roll for him. (Unless it's successful without him, then it's simply unnecessary). :)

And this week has been a busy week for me, so my posting has come way later than normal. I think after tomorrow I'll be able to finally breathe a little easier.

It's been a long week.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Just DMPC me for now. Or just delay Sh'torek. That'd be fine too. I've had a long day and it's late and I need to call it a night. Sorry.

GM Aku wrote:

Sh’ are you aware that this game is about being a pirate and doing pirate things right?

To plunder, murder, blackmail, capture and sell ‘foes’ as slaves and lots of others pirate things.
If you want to roll with a ‘good-pirate’ maybe you could do that for a ‘greater-good’ cause, or you don’t kill, but rather only disable your enemies. There are several of options here to make interesting choices. The game however, is based around (at least a great deal in the earlier parts) in being an infamy pirate. :)

The bold emphasis is mine.

And as far as that is concerned, my character will not be doing any of this. Now, he won't having a problem taking out other pirate ships, but, he has no desire in taking out innocent ships.

Because all of those things that I bolded are made for an evil character. Sh'torek is not an evil character. And if that's what this AP is all about, then Paizo should have mentioned beforehand that this is for evil characters only. I would've then built an evil pc for it. It's far too late for that now, though.

So, having said all that, if this is gonna be a problem for you, DM, or for the rest of you, players, then let me know and I'll move on. No harm no foul. Because I'm not building an evil character at this point. I built this character for this AP because that's what I liked. I didn't realize it was suppose to be an evil campaign.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Shows you how much I've been paying attention - there are ONLY 5 of us in this game. Heck, for some reason I thought there were six.

Did we get that book in your game, thom? I'm drawing a big blank. I'm just flippantly assuming that we all got it at the beginning of this one; not even thinking that it could've been something acquired in our previous game.

And if that's the case, then I guess Lothan and Tyrrol will just split it in half.

Cash from sale of 2nd Darkness Notes (Lothan and Tyrrol?)

That was 2000g. Lothan has it all. Divided by 6 is 333.33g. Let me know when you all jot your share down.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Just so I'm clear, Lothan took only a +1 rapier.

There is nothing else that he wants. So the rest of it can go to the rest of y'all. Otherwise I say, sell it! :)


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Congrats, bud! Good to hear both are doing fine.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

+1 skill rank to: Acrobatics, Prof(Sailor), Survival, Swim, Craft(Sails)

Rage power: Draconic blood, lesser.

That's pretty much it.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Amazingly enough, Dhugal, that is the perfect roll for HP's for you!(At least, at this level anyway).

Here are HP mechanic:

DM Aku wrote:
HP: Max for 1st level, half for even levels thereafter, full for odd. So a 1st level Wiz would be 6 + Con mod, 2nd level 3 + Con mod, 3rd 6 + Con mod, lather, rinse, repeat.

(I copied this from the recent recruit thread. And I made it big because it just seems so small to me when quoted. Of course, my sight is not the greatest so that could very well be it.) :P

Anyway... well done! :)


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Will get Sh'torek updated tomorrow. Took forever to decide on a rage power and now it's late for me. I am also in the "wee bit indecisive" club.

Hello, newcomers! And possibly goodbye! :P

@Victoriana: Sh'torek actually doesn't need Air Bubble. He breathes water also. :)


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Ohhhh, okay, I did not know that. That's interesting. Thanks for the breakdown.


No third party, please. Prefer Paizo only. Thanks.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Lol! Okay, I totally did not mean to start a "bard" riot. I guess "lame" isn't the proper term so much as they're simply just not for ME. There are several classes that actually fall into the "not for me" category to be honest.

Hey, that's cool. First time playing a bard, huh? This is actually my first time playing a witch.

My thing is, I typically play a damage dealer. Because that's what I like. So a witch really isn't for me either. They're just too weak. I never play any kind of arcane caster because of said weakness. Well, until you reach high level then they just get down right nasty. It's actually getting them there that I don't have the patience for. But having said all that, I'm having a blast with it and find the witch class pretty interesting.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Lol! I find bard's lame but THAT'S how one can be truly fun to run with. That's good stuff.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

While I don't get the inside joke, my initial thought went straight to the movie Seven. The whole "stuffing his head in a sack" bit obviously struck me in quite the grotesque way. And that movie is just sick. Really don't know why I saw that one.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

I haven't been. And I got no problem with you tracking it if you want.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Honestly, whatever the rest wanna do is fine with me. It's no biggie to me either way.

If the majority decide yes, then I'd probably guess we'd need a healer. Nothing wrong with Sandara healing us up but I would not be a huge fan of having to depend upon her all the time. I prefer to depend on a pc rather than an npc.

But that's just my take.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

lol! It was just too good to pass up. :)


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

No! There will be no cutting loose. :) I like Ambrose. He's a good character.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

As for Ambrose, his last post anywhere was on July 25th. He did mention something about finals or something. Maybe that's what has him busy.

I hope that's all it is. Sure would hate to lose him. Especially seeing how there's only 4 of us.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Cool. Then I guess I'll go ahead and snag the hook and amulet.

@Lym: Unless you really want the amulet. I almost missed that last line in there. It really doesn't matter to me either way, bud.

I'll write down the hook for now.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Not sure what's gonna happen with this but I'm gonna go ahead and remove myself from this one, folks.

Been a heck of a run.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

I'd be keen on the Amulet and the Ogre Hook. But I also am of the same mind as Alex on us being the new guys.

Outside of that, it's all good to me on who gets what. I don't really sweat it. Me personally, when it comes to some items, I like to give it to whoever I feel like it "fits". And if they don't want it, then whoever wants it. But that's just me. Of course, an amulet can go to anyone so that makes it tougher.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Man, Dhugal, you're so freaking close! You have the best chance of passing this stinking test.

Out of all your rolls, you only failed on 1 of 'em! Dangit! So close.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

I was wondering. Man I'm thinking Paizo's getting a bit too ridiculous on this part. It's one thing to be like, 3rd level or so on something like this, but 1st?

It's practically pointless for probably 90 to 95% of pc's. I'm sure somebody, somewhere has succeeded but I'd be willing to be they are seriously in the minority.
