Any DM throwing perma-level drains at such low-level characters either needs more experience because he has no idea what he's doing, or is a terrible person because he knows exactly what he's doing.

*shrug* There's a wight in a first-level dungeon in a Paizo module.

Which module?:

Wow, that's ... kinda depressing. Where does the time go? It doesn't feel like it's been that long.

From the article:

The launch of the new edition of WotC’s Dungeons & Dragons was like a shot of adrenaline for the RPG category, but although the two D&D releases that shipped in the summer season sold well, they were insufficient to knock off Pathfinder, which hung on to its #1 slot in the category.

{My bold.} So, yeah, it includes both Starter Set and Player's Handbook.

It's always possible that 5e PHB sold quite well and it wasn't enough to knock Pathfinder out of the top spot. After all, Pathfinder had a lot more products available to buy this summer. It's not just new releases. Erik Mona (iirc) was quoted in an article around GenCon that Paizo has sold more CRBs every year since launch than the previous year.

Whose thrall is Thrymr? Which NPC is enough of a jerk to deny a thrall the one day of festival in a year he's entitled to? :)

Sense Motive 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15

We haven't figured out what the deal was with that "pilgrim" Ntisi was covering for, either. Not to mention our friend Kamishah who also showed up in Freehold. I have the feeling Freehold hasn't been completely left behind us.

No, you guys are waiting on me. Had a tiring weekend and a busy Monday, but I'll wrap up Ranef's bout and narrate Piccolo across town tonight.

The rules deck was printed after Sean left the company. And his clarifications were never an official FAQ, just his opinion.

Given Vic's above response to people's reaction to the AoO card, I'm guessing this is official. But I guess we'll see next month. :)

For a question about an order, Customer Service is the correct forum. Website Feedback is for problems/suggestions for the site.

Unlikely to be Giantslayer, imo. They've had issues in the past trying to get mini sets out at the same time as the AP, as creatures and NPCs have changed past the cut-off date for deciding on the sculpts.

Doesn't mean no one else can put anything in, but it seems like our scholar and party face ought to do the scholarly faceing. I believe the only other PC with a relevant Knowledge skill is Mus'ad, and he's got the stoic dwarf-of-few-words thing going.

DMPC the Professor going over all the stuff in posts like this, and then anyone else with anything to add can do so. (He'd probably also tell Pherenike to sit down and be polite.) Heck, he's the only one who knows Ancient Osiriani so none of the rest of us even know what any of this stuff says.

And yet the alternative is asking PCs without the requisite Knowledge skills (or interests) to break character and run on like an antiquities scholar. Ahkenaten and Aerathiel are both in the room and the most Knowledgeable of the party: Why not just say that one of them delivers the speech that one of them would be doing if they were around? If I were unavailable for a while, you'd DMPC Pherenike in combat rather than asking the party to fight encounters without their main melee combatant, just like you DMPCed Musad to search for traps while Mark was away rather than just telling us we walked into them.

True: It's mostly a matter of trying to get them in the hands of the people most likely to need them in a pinch. It's easier for someone to pull out a potion and drink it when needed than for someone else to have to get it out, move adjacent, and give it to them.

Outside of combat, of course, there's rarely an action economy issue. Hopefully we won't have to use the chime of opening or rod of cancellation in the middle of a combat encounter.

Feel free to disagree, if you prefer a different distribution. This is a benevolent dictatorship. The dungeon is sparsely populated, and we hardly ever use thumbscrews. :)

So, does Joneth get one potion of lesser restoration and how many potions of cure serious wounds, one or two?

All right, I have the following items undistributed:

potion of cure moderate wounds
potion of invisibility (x2)
alchemist's fire (x2)
tanglefoot bag
potion of cure serious wounds (x8)
potion of lesser restoration (x4)
chime of opening
wand of daylight (24 charges)

That's one csw for everyone, with three left over. A second each to Gregori and Joneth, and one left over. Joneth's AC is slightly worse than Gregori's so let's assume he's more likely to get hit and give the extra to him. Eudocia only has 22 hp total, so we'll give her the cmw.

One lesser restoration for everyone but Harrol.

Eudocia will hold the wand of daylight for now.

Chime of opening, anyone? Theodric?

Antitoxin to Harrol? Alchemist's fire and tanglefoot bag need to go to someone with a good ranged attack.

And 2 potions of invisibility: We don't really have anyone stealthy anymore, do we? Joneth and Eudocia seem to have the best Stealth modifiers.

That leaves us with:

potion of cure moderate wounds Eudocia
potion of invisibility (x2) Eudocia, Joneth
alchemist's fire (x2) ??
tanglefoot bag ??
antitoxin Harrol
potion of cure serious wounds (x8) Eudocia, Harrol, Theodric, Gregori x2, Joneth x3
potion of lesser restoration (x4) Eudocia, Theodric, Gregori, Joneth
chime of opening Theodric
wand of daylight (24 charges) Eudocia

If there are no objections, please update your character sheets.

Pherenike would strenuously object to anyone other than the Professor speaking to Sebu on the group's behalf.

Have to give you props there: She's not even an elf. ;)

True, although I'm mostly thinking of Snake getting his flock of outcasts back home and himself out of Rotgut before dark. We'll see how it plays out.

I appreciate your branching out. ;)

CRB>Gamemastering>Awarding Experience wrote:
Keep a list of the CRs of all the monsters, traps, obstacles, and roleplaying encounters the PCs overcome. At the end of each session, award XP to each PC that participated. Each monster, trap, and obstacle awards a set amount of XP, as determined by its CR, regardless of the level of the party in relation to the challenge, although you should never bother awarding XP for challenges that have a CR of 10 or more lower than the APL. Pure roleplaying encounters generally have a CR equal to the average level of the party (although particularly easy or difficult roleplaying encounters might be one higher or lower).

Here's a recent thread where people discuss the pros and cons of giving XP for roleplaying. Here's an older one, and here's another.

Also, re the vermleks, I don't suppose Eudocia's 24 reveals if there's any special way to kill them other than keep beating on the host body until it stops moving?

Do we actually know anything about Kandro Nyserian? I did a search in-thread and only picked up Nyserian Manor, which was a) razed in the initial assault, and b) one of the Baphomet cultists' safe houses, so he might deserve what he got.

As a temporary workaround, if you hover over the clickable text, the link that appears to let you know where you'll be navigating to (at least in Chrome, not sure if it works in other browsers) has the source book in it: Prd/advanced for APG, Prd/advancedRaceGuide, Prd/npcCodex, etc.

Hey, what happened to your assurance that she wouldn't be blonde, Miss Clairol Liquid Gold? ;P

Working toward everyone hitting sunset at approximately the same time. Snake is a little behind everyone else and needs to have his business at Betta's wrapped up while Phil is still at the arena.

Also, Javell has pointed out that my dramatis personae on the Campaign Info tab is out of date, leading to Cassey's name being spelled wrong by both of us for a while there. I'll try to get the missing NPCs added this weekend.

Two to three feet long and five pounds? Is that a rod in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

Then again, if that's supposed to be a scroll case....

Oh, does your archetype give up spell-casting? You're the one we need focusing on combat anyway, not fumbling for wands, and you've got your halo.

Might give the front-liners a lesser restoration each, just in case. In most cases, they'll probably be used between encounters rather than in combat, but it wouldn't hurt to have some more easily accessible in case of emergency.

Everyone should probably take a cure serious and give the extras to Gregori and Joneth.

That leaves the chime. Oh, and the rod.

The name Ioun is not WotC (or TSR) IP, having been borrowed from Jack Vance's fiction.

All right, we're back up and running. They replaced our modem/router twice, as the first replacement quit working after downloading a software update ... and after we'd already gone around connecting everything wireless to the new network, so we got to do that twice as well.

My old modem lasted thirteen years before AT&T forced us to upgrade to fiber-optics and 'oh, incidentally, you can't use your own hardware, you have to let us install ours.' :P

I'll get up a post to cover the specific bouts Phillip's interested in tomorrow.

Silent Spell (Metamagic)

You can cast your spells without making any sound.

Benefit: A silent spell can be cast with no verbal components. Spells without verbal components are not affected. A silent spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level.
Special: Bard spells cannot be enhanced by this feat.

Monday is a federal holiday, so anything being shipped by USPS wouldn't go anywhere anyway. UPS works Columbus Day, though.

I'm having internet issues at my home, which hopefully will be fixed soon, but I might not be able to post this weekend.

Having internet issues so might be unavailable this weekend; hopefully it won't stretch on any longer than that.

Having internet issues, guys. If I'm not around this weekend, that's why. Supposed to have a technician out tomorrow.

While I don't know much Spanish, I'm pretty sure this is spam.

And here's the same guy in German.

Plus, we already have a bard ... in theory.

It requires the delicate choreography and split-second timing of a bedroom farce, but I think it's easier to assume that Braddon and Gris just manage to miss each other at the Goblin than to try to brute-force their timelines together at this point.

Braddon, you could always decide you'd be most difficult to find and assign more work if you were blending in with a few hundred other spectators at Zincher's Arena....

...and that skit is another one that I fail to find the humor in. >.>

Eh, the writing's not all that -- Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer was usually in the last half-hour of the show when they were desperate for padding -- but Phil Hartman could read the Gettysburg Address in that smarmy voice and make me laugh.

Meh, SNL's pretty tight-fisted with its IP. :P

The cell phone's like this.

Well, right now he's still in familiar surroundings. I imagine things will become harder to deny if/when we make it out of the pyramid and he becomes Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer.

EDIT: My gosh, look at the size of that cell phone. I think he must have carrying that when he fell in the ice.

Zincher's Arena is subject to the same rules that the rest of non-Free-Coin Riddleport is in, re not selling food after sunset. Also, without a lit field, there's not much point in spectator sports after dark. :)

So, yeah, it's reasonable to assume that the fights will end shortly before sunset. Remember that Phil is supposed to pick up both Ethel's and his clothes today before close of business.

Braddon, is it your intention to stick around the Goblin or decamp yet again once you've ridden yourself of your feline friend? Trying to decide how to handle you and Gristav being in the same place and whether it should be the same time as well.

EDIT: Gristav, give me a while to hear Braddon's plans so I can figure out if the two of you will bump into each other or not.

In the long run, it's been my experience that most Paizo APs absolutely expect the party to include a full-arcane-caster by the mid to late books. On the other hand, we're realistically unlikely to make it that far.

In the short term, Aerathiel is the only party member other than Pherenike to have a reliable way to bypass DR/-.

Hey, oKOyA, food for thought.

As stated by Vic here...

A few years ago, the USPS removed surface mail as an option, and weight limits on the remaining services have been set so that parcels weighing more than 4 pounds have to ship via International Priority as a minimum.

We've made our system smart enough to break up large orders into multiple boxes anytime that will save on postage, but since the Core Rulebook by itself weighs 4.2 pounds, there really is no lower-cost option shipping option available to us for Core Rulebooks.

(We have looked at non-USPS services as well, and have not yet found anything even *close* to Priority Mail in price.)

...Priority Mail is the only option for international packages weighing over 4 pounds. That said, the check-out system has been kind of wonky lately and it seems like you'd have to have ordered quite a few magazines to make up 4 pounds, so you might ask Customer Service to check the weight of the proposed package. They've been buried here lately (due largely to the above-referenced wonky check-outs), however, so you might have to wait a while.

Also, Customer Service works from the bottom of the thread to the top, so every time you bump the thread, you put yourself farther back in the queue.

So, today I learned that boxing odds come in fractional, decimal, and U.S. settings, and all of them are Greek to me. I went with the U.S. terms as explained here, at least as far as I understood them. If I've made a horrible botch of it, we'll just call these Riddleport odds, and the gist is that the lower number is the favorite.

What is it that makes these so much more costly?

More paint steps, I believe. While I'm satisfied with the Icons of the Realms minis, they're not as ambitious as the Pathfinder Battles sets.

Also, Paizo doesn't usually discount their own products in their store as a gesture to LGSs, apart from subscription discounts and periodic sales (see Great Golem). While these are licensed products, they may well fall under the same rubric. You might be able to get them cheaper somewhere other than

Expect any woman to be called a "skirt."

Hee. My one and only male PbP character was a hypermasculine chauvinist Abadaran cleric who called women 'skirts.' Also fond of telling the female party paladin to make him a sandwich and suggesting she show a little leg while rolling Diplomacy. He cast stabilize by shouting "Stop bleeding!" at unconscious party members. He so made me laugh. :D
