What are the map folios for AP's like?

Are they an overview of the nation/region the AP takes place in?

Are they reprints of rooms that fights take place in?

Are they just for decoration(to hang on a wall, but no practical use)?


I just saw this online. :(


You would have to create your own black dragon, giant, and so on, not just convert someone else's. You may not even convert images in the community use package. You may only redistribute them "as is".

I just realized these were remakes, so no selling allowed, but still, it looks nice.

edit: and now I see Chris's post.

It is not finished, but it is good enough to add files.

If you want to add something make a request from the page so I can give you permission.

I had to change the folders to only have them by chapters.


Not a bad idea. I am setting up to run this. I will put any final NPC's here.

That is my primary issue: She asked the crowd politely to go home.... then stood their as they got slaughtered- she didn't even comment about the oracle helping them out.

It seems convincing a party member would be easier. Did the player of the paladin just think the oracle player would not listen so he gave up trying? I just find it easier to calm my friends down most of the time, than it is to calm a stranger so I wonder if this is an ooc issue, or the player really just not being fit to play a paladin.


I know what the code says, but it is not a straight jacket, or it should not be anyway. That leads to bad situations for paladins. It could lead him into suicidal situations, and that was not the intent of the code. If he is of more help by trying to bring the queen down then him dying right then is actually him helping less. That is why even paladins have to choose their battles.

The paladin is devoted to Serenrae, and she has the general code of conduct (as described in the core rules).

Earlier in the game a man attempted to surrender to her, and she promptly beheaded him, which I considered.... extreme.

Swagger, you don't think she should have at least TRIED to stop them?

Thanks for speedy responses.

IIRC Sarenrae is about forgiveness, so assuming you are using the book with the specific codes in it, I think he should have taken the surrender. <---This would be a problem assuming my memory is correct. This could be a player disconnect issue. I am assuming the character would know it was against the ethos of his deity so I would have told him ooc, that his deity would not approve. If he did it anyway, than that is the character deciding he does not care, and the powers would be gone most likely, but that is only due to Sarenrae. A more martial deity might not care as much.

Back to the bloodvale situation: He should have tried talking them(grey maidens and the oracle) out of it, or tried to make the crowd go home, but entering combat is a bad idea.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

No. A paladin that is dead can not protect anyone and they know that so fighting against bad odds would not make sense.

What I as the character would do is pull the oracle aside and let him know that such actions will not be condoned again, and RP a more focused effort on getting rid of the queen, to make sure this does not happen again.

PS: I would never punish a paladin for being in a no-win situation.
As a player I would have my paladin atone and ask for forgiveness. <---You can suggest that to the the player.


I try not to use the "typical" barbarian, fighter, etc. I avoid this with my background and I explain how he came to be whatever class it has. I also put 1 or 2 goals in the story.

In addition I will give his personality it's own paragraph, and I would have a "what I bring to the party" section. If two background stories are similar then being able to mesh with preselected members might get you over.


I skipped a few post but you may need to list a time and time zone. Your night may be someone else's morning. :)

That is all I have. Happy gaming.


I have had friends with the problem. In these situations they made sure to make time for the wife and kids, even so much as to plan vacations, and the wives never bothered them if they did any other activity. It was only the gaming, which took place once a week, or once every 2 weeks.

Every situation is different, but many times, it is because they can't relate so they don't understand the value of it.

As long as she is getting to spend time with you as a couple I would say keep gaming. This may be one of those "test" such as when your gf waits until the game(sports) comes on to talk to you just to see if you will choose her over the game. They(some women( see it as a matter of reassurance, not knowing how the game(tv or rpg) is not really close to being as important as them.

PS:I have heard this come directly from women so I am not theorycrafting.. :)


So is this like the qinggong monk version of a fighter?<--Not a bad thing


Thanks..I will download the new version. I also need to review since I have had it for over 2 years..


So he is posting to let everyone know he will not post anymore?

Sounds good but the price is too much for just a pdf. I might buy it if it ever includes a print copy along with a pdf.

I am thinking the same thing. Way of the Wicked is only 10.00, and it has 100 pages.

Before I even consider paying 10.00 dollars for another 42 pages I would need some very good reviews. Maybe a subscription option or a pdf bundle for a lower price might work.


1 person marked this as FAQ candidate.

I was a player. Flesh to Stone says the spell restores the victim to life, and it removes the condition, but with a fort save.

The blood of the basilisk only turns the stone to flesh. It says nothing about restoring them to life, so either way the PC would have been dead.

basilisk wrote:
Gaze (Ex) Turn to stone permanently (as flesh to stone), range 30 feet, Fortitude DC 15 negates. A creature petrified in this matter that is then coated (not just splashed) with fresh basilisk blood (taken from a basilisk no more than 1 hour dead) is instantly restored to flesh. A single basilisk contains enough blood to coat 1d3 Medium creatures in this manner. The save DC is Constitution-based.
Stone to Flesh wrote:
This spell restores a petrified creature to its normal state, restoring life and goods.

I thought about going after the gears for the shield, but none of us have disable device, that I know of anyway. With the country being LG finding a rogue willing to help might be difficult, but we could gather information on any current adventurers in town to see if there are any that are more about money, than doing the right thing.

I don't like the disguise ideas for reasons already mentioned.

Dismissing the dwarves could work if we could find out who is capable of such an authorization. I guess we could do a gather information on that. I would word it as "Who signs offs/decides on work done to the keep?" or something similar.

Finding out about the disgraced priest is also a good idea. We still have a decent amount of time to make this work.

Down Comforter has a good point. The adamantine weapon is more likely to be useful than the scarab. Finding such a weapon is the issue however. Hopefully we dont have to get it made. That would take forever.

Thanks Khantin. I will look at it.

Since Gauss said we could make up our own sign language. I was going to put a rank in linguistics at this level. Is everyone else willing to do it?


10 Board Lurker/10 Nice Guy/

It seems someone already fixed it. :)

The Greater Barghest has "mass enlarge" as an SLA. Mass enlarge is not a spell.


10 Board Lurker/10 Nice Guy/

I sent the character sheet and token..


10 Board Lurker/10 Nice Guy/

DC what is everyone else playing. If we have no true front liner I vote for the barbarian, but if we do have one I will most likely vote for the cleric. A well played cleric can be versatile..

To everyone:

Please email me the link, or the character sheet, to your final version. Also include the token you plan on using for that character. If your token is on Roll20 the token name should be sufficient for me to find it for you. Finally, include your storyline.

I want this all in one email please. This way I have it in one ready source.

Assuming no objections we will begin next Wednesday, December 5th.

I have assigned to each of you a Character profile. Please write whatever you wish there. If you have a link to your PDF please place the link in that profile. If you wish, I will host your character sheet on my mediafire account and I will link it for you.

Crunch time folks, lets finish getting ready.

I will be using the form fillable character sheets from my end. I will save it to my mediafire account, and post a link here.

PS:The character will have a name soon.


10 Board Lurker/10 Nice Guy/

No I will not be in melee DC, if I can help it. Due to the hexes I will be in charging distance though, but hopefully I can make keep charges from taking place. I don't intend to ever be in melee with a low BAB character.

I still have not heard back if people are ok playing December 26th and January 2nd. If you are not and we cannot find an alternate day to play those weeks I may wait until after new years to start the game.

- Gauss

I can also do the 2nd, but not the 26th...As of now any other day after the 26th should be ok.

I should also be posting my witch tomorrow, the mechanics anyway. The backstory should come a day or two later.

10 Board Lurker/10 Nice Guy/

I just logged in.


10 Board Lurker/10 Nice Guy/

I think I can mitigate it. :)

The mask is not required to wear so I won't wear it at first. It will come into play later on though, when I can make use craft wondrous item to make it work like a hat of disguise.

I knew about the RAW/RAI, I just wanted to make sure we are on the same page (it is socially better to ask a question than to assume you did not know).

As long as you understand the problems, yes, you can take an Orc Scarred Witch Doctor. I may assign a circumstance penalty to disguise due to the scarification. It will depend on the situation.

- Gauss

I think there is a half-orc racial trait that has scars so them(others) not knowing if I am a half-orc or orc would be ok*. He will have average(at worst) mental stats so speaking in a civilized manner won't be an issue.

*When I am disguised, which would be as much as possible.

Quote:
Sacred Tattoo: Many half-orcs decorate themselves with tattoos, piercings, and ritual scarification, which they consider sacred markings. Half-orcs with this racial trait gain a +1 luck bonus on all saving throws. This racial trait replaces orc ferocity.


10 Board Lurker/10 Nice Guy/

RAW and RAI the archetype is only available to orcs not half-orcs. If you would allow it with a half-orc I would accept that. I know I will have to take disguise as a skill if I use an orc. I am willing to do so. I wanted to make sure the idea was ok before I made plans to work around the issue though.

I will do that later tonight, and if I think I can pull it off I will stay with the witch doctor, otherwise I will most likely just use a normal witch.

Unless there is a developer comment or FAQ I am unaware of you can only select the advanced talent 'Feat' once. Archaeologists follow all rules that rogues follow when it comes to Talents and Advanced Talents except for how often they get them.

- Gauss

I will ask. It has always been assumed by many to mean it can replace a rogue talent, but the way it is written makes it look like "feat" is a talent. Hopefully SKR checks in.

Edit:After checking around it seems it is a talent...

Now I have to decide which arcane caster I want. I will get back to you when I decide.


10 Board Lurker/10 Nice Guy/

I am thinking of a bard archaeologist.

They get rogue talents to eventually include the advanced rogue talents. The rogue's rules say you can trade the advanced ones for a feat.
Depending on how you read it, that may or may not apply to the bard.

I need your interpretation Gauss.

I am also thinking of a sorcerer, witch, or wizard.

Just got the inbox message.

Any time after 830 PM or later works for me*. If any other time is chosen my availability will be random.

I did not get a PM.

Skype is fine with me for a roll20 group; I've got it and have used it previously.

Looks like several people want to do a PBP for various reasons; I'm going to post what I believe is the list of PBP players and the Roll20 players:
PBP
Sinblade06
.....Half-Elf Rogue 4
davidvs
.....Any pregen (lvl 4)
Daron Woodson/Abandoned Arts
.....Any pregen (lvl 4)
-

Roll20 (w/ Skype)
Nelith (assuming he is here since he asked about Skype)
.....No character yet
Mr. Swagger (EST after ~3PM = Noon PST = ~7-8PM GMT)
.....Human Paladin 4
Sir Egon D'Clausanne (GMT 6am-11 pm = 10pm-3pm PST = 1am-6pm EST)
.....Cleric 4 (based on pregen/use pregen)
-

Unknown
Tirq: PM'ed me once, not sure if he's still around/available/interested

I'll open this to the following for the people above:
Option (1)
Play 2 separate groups, one in PBP, one in Roll20, each group gets one additional pre-gen that will be controlled by the GM (like in PFS).

Option (2)
Everyone plays PBP as one big group (up to 6 players depending on who is still following this thread & interested).

Either way, please choose which pregen you want (for the players who want to run a pregen) and toss in your vote regarding the 2 options. I would suggest for those of you creating characters: don't spend a ton of time on background unless you plan to use the character elsewhere--remember this is a short-ish one-off adventure.

My after 3pm will vary from day to day. The latest I get home is 830pm, which is 530 pm PST I am assuming. Some days I am off by 1pm however which is 10am PST. Yeah I have a crazy schedule.


I did not read the entire thread so I do apologize if this has been mentioned by someone else.

Under my "Concerro" account, which is the main account if I click on the campaign tab I get the following:
"Sorry, there was a problem handling your request. The system administrator has been notified.

Please contact webmaster@paizo.com if you continue to have difficulties."

If I go to one of my aliases which only has the campaigns I am running games for then the campaign tabs for that alias show up.

I just found it strange that my main account is the one where the tab was not working.


Character in progress ETA-->1 hour. Well it is only the mechanics for now. The background story will come later.


I am behind also, but I did decide on a paladin.

I will try to get it done today. I do have a few PbP issues to resolve. I will also tell you, as someone that is using roll20, that it is using a voice system such as Skype might be the better choice.

Feel free to PM me.
