I received mine this evening, and boy do my players and I love it. They descended on it and immediately picked out new pawns that fit their characters.
On top of that it huge, at least to me it is, and gives me a pretty good assortment of NPCs to throw at my players :)).
Ok I have a question and I can't seem to find a good answer. But first backstory!
For a while now I've been running CotCT for my players and they've just reached the end of Seven Days to the Grave.
Well before moving to the final room the party, well the majority, decided to heal up after a tough fight in Hall of Pestilence. Two of the players (an archer and an sword and board fighter) though decided to charge, balls to the wall, into the sanctum (while the other players stared dumbstruck). They met Andaisin (Andaisin had time to prepare for the fight since the party inadvertently alerted the temple). Thinking they could take her down solo, rolled initiative and ended the game there.
Well all of this was two weeks ago. Coming back to tonight's game everyone is there except these two (they were at band performance). The game starts with the two (being played "ghosted") yelling "CHARGE" as they dash threw the hall leading to the sanctum. The other players roll their eyes and say "let'em die it'll be there fault for doing that last game". Well that's what happened. While the rest of the party healed up and took a few minutes to relax, team "doorknob" (as they're being called now) challenged Andaisin alone.
Round 1 - Andaisin (buffed) won init (16, the other two rolled a 9 and an 8). Her first action is to cast greater command "fall". Both of them fail their saves a 2 and a 5 on the die. She used her move action to close in on the two. There turn comes and “Dami” the fighter fails his will save. He stabs at her with his longspear but misses with both attacks. “Ty” the archer fails his save aswell and we at the table come to a mind-boggling discovery. Ty has no weapons other than his bow! So Ty attempts to stab her with an arrow and manages to hit. But only manages to lay some nonlethal damage on her.
Round 2 - Andaisin casts slay living on Dami. They both make AoO but miss. Dami’s save fumbles! He takes 52 points and is down. Ty makes his save against the greater command. He takes up Dami’s spear but misses L.
Round 3 - Andaisin makes two attacks with her scythe. One miss the other one CRITS. Well after that his character wasn’t getting back up.
So here it is. Two absent players dead. So I ask you, what would you have done? Just let the characters live? Pretend they never entered the room even though that’s what they wanted?
So I'm helping a player stat up his new werelion barbarian. The problem is I think my brain is burnt out, because these questions should be easy to answer myself.
So in his hybrid form he sohuld be large, yes? If that's so why is the weretiger only medium? I mean tiger's are large last I looked.
So he'll be gaining the lion's grab, pounce and rake abilities right?
Again sorry for the lame questions. Brains just not firing on all cylinders.
Ok dumb question time!
So let's say I was to tempt trying to go this year. Not counting travel (plane tickets seem to be going for about $288 for me) or living arrangements (I would have to find a really, really cheap hotel :p), how much money would I need to bring to get along from the 9-13?
>Casts summon customer service<
So I'm just now putting in my lady friends Christmas order, yay the bum has money, and was wondering what are the chances of it getting here by the 25th if I used standard mail? Or am I looking at having to pay for faster delivery?
Ah, I feel it! It's getting closer, my favorite day of the year. So with Halloween fast approaching what are you doing this year? Plan to dress up and party? Give candy to all sorts of spooks and goblins? Run a horror themed game?
Personally I'll be manning the door and handing out the treats, but I'm also doing the latter mentioned. Since the start of this wonderful month I've been running a "zombie" apocalypse game for my groups. They all really love and it forces them to think on their feet (By the way trying to curb stomp a downed but not out "zombie" is NOT a good idea). The game is set in current time using the basic firearms info from the Pathfinder Campaign Setting.
The groups have had a hard time of thinking what to do next amongst the chaos. Do they search for their loved ones? Flee town and leave the others? Try to make since and stop it the source of problem?
Group A, my Saturday group, is going with fortifying there home and waiting out the doom. Only venturing out in need of food.
Group B, my Monday group, is hitting the road, after finding most of there loved ones dead. This idea especially hit home with one player who had to put her own daughter down o_O
So again what kind of strange, spooky, horrific things do you have planned?
So while thinking out ideas for my lastest game a thought struck me, and afterward I was left confuzed and just a bit maddened...
Which of these is the oldest entites? In one corner the Qlippoths, beings of pure malice, the Abyss incarnate, ancient beyond imagining. In the other corner The Great Old Ones, beings of madness and alien intellect, who's existance predates the gods.
So which of the horrors came first?
