It's not so much that the same PC is required, per se, but I just want to inflict as much misery on you as possible. Oh, so much delicious misery. So, so much.
Midnight Madness ought to be renamed "Midnight Debauchery, with role playing."

I have only the faintest memory of that game. I think that is for the best.
To answer yer question, Yes.
No date for Valentine's Day? Looking to visit lovely Minneapolis/St. Paul in the dead of February? Great because we have a con that is just for you! Want to GM a table or three? Let me know and I'll hook you up! Good times are sure to be had by all.
Let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to answer.
I hope to see you there!

What I have been doing for older scenarios is writing OOT and the gold amount in the blank box under the tiers and gold amounts at the top right of the page.
This should satisfy for a level 2 playing in a tier 3-4 scenario. Like Sniggevert says, if is from a tier 3-7 scenario and the PC in question is level 2, explain that he or she needs to be 3rd level before applying the chronicle. Ask if they played a pregen, if the answer is yes then we are all happy! If the answer is no, explain that the player should not have played his or her PC and then have a polite talk with the GM who signed the chronicle about the mistake.
Still the greatest Taldor-esque faction mission that never was must be "Say hi to my mom for me."

I have a dexterity based Aldori Sword Lord. The archetype and prestige class mesh well. Add a level or two of Duelist for extra damage and AC and there is yer mobile fighter. Mine has a strength of 10 with no dervish anything. He does have ranks in perform dance though.

This is why I call out just about all of my attack rolls. I tell the table I do this because I never assume I hit. I ask that the players do the same.

There is nothing stopping you from accessing these new traits right now.
Well, the first question I have is, "Why do you think the monsters failed?" Yes, tactics can make certain monsters easier to defeat, but really take into account the area the critter lives/spends their time/ is encountered. Is there an advantage the critter can use? Remember to use combat maneuvers. You can trip players just as often as they trip you.
I also admit I am horrible at running arcane casters as bad guys. I struggle something fierce! But I am trying to get better.
If you can give us an example or two of times you describe above, I am positive folks here can help you.
That was also attached to the wall. We are talking about free standing structures. There is a big difference.

Thanks. You all were a lot of fun and I look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Phinous, for act three, the successes for the various tiers do influence the other tiers.
For low tier, after X number of siege engine shots fired, the high tier gets a bonus against the Big Demons. Also for low tier, when the mid tier gets a success, low tier tables have two additional artillerists arrive.

Yes. There is a method for determining how much success the house has and for determining the final victory.

I was the gm for Rogue Eidolon's table at Paizocon. And yes, we finished off well over ten waves of critters. Granted, they were very efficient at eliminating the demons. Either we powered through too many encounters at Paizocon too quickly or I rushed the table because we were in danger of running out of encounters. So when Thursty told us we were crazy if we got through all of the encounters, I laughed a bit inside.
I can not comment about the mid-tier for gencon as I requested a low tier table for the special.
I think we had less time for act 3 this go around (at least it felt that way to me). But, from reading the updated version and talking to others the difficulty was increased. There were much fewer successes called out at every tier.

Good thing I am bring both in one bottle.
You like maple, too, right?
Forgive me, I knew not what I created.
So, I tried this tonight. My gods is this good. I think it might need moar bacon because the maple overpowers just about everything. I know there is bourbon in there somewhere, but I can barely taste it.
For the first glass, I tried it plain, then with ice, then with cherry bitters (I only have cherry bitters. Vanilla is a definite and orange might work). My first thought was, "What can I cut this with?" and the only acceptable answer was ice. Or moar straight bourbon. You know, to let you know it's there. This will be my second gla-, I mean quality control sample.
Anyone interested in trying this is more than welcome. I am afraid of what would happen if I or only the people in my room drank it all. I am running Fortress of the Nail, Voice in the Void, and Ray Smuckles' bone bone bonekeep Friday evening. Look me up.
Kyle Baird wrote:
Bonekeep isn't just for power-gamers, fwiw. Some of us enjoy a scenario we know we aren't supposed to be a 100% successful in. I plan on playing my little goblin just as silly as I normally do, and fully expect to get my butt handed to me because of it.
Yes. Yes, you will.
And then I will pour you a glass of the magic elixir to wash away the pain.

IT HAS BEGUN. SOON THE WORLD WILL KNOW OF MAPLE BACON BOURBON. AND THE WORLD WILL REJOICE FOR THE BOURBON WILL BE AWESOME.
Ryan, I will accept your offer of bootlegging my booze across state lines.
I could do this. The process is remarkably easy. The two weeks to GenCon is pushing it as far as peak flavor profile is concerned, but this is not my biggest hurdle. That would be transportation. I am flying to Indianapolis and looking to avoid checking luggage. Carrying an open bottle of bourbon in my carry-on bag is inviting a pat down from Johnny Law and confiscation. I think I will start a bottle tomorrow night and bring it with me if I eventually need to check a bag.
