I'm available tonight, not sure what we'll be able to accomplish. Rath and Trini are 4/7 of the party (when you include the kitties).

Yeah, that's fairly significant.

We can still play, we'll see how it goes.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thanks Trini.

That leaves a witch, alchemist and cleric without the main cat tanks.

We can still play if you like. If I don't hear from anyone, I'll assume the game is on and we'll see what happens then.

Sorry to hear that, and thanks for letting me know.

Is anyone else not available for the Easter game?
How do we feel about playing without Lini and Droog?

This looks ambitious.

Also, it's good to have Nick back!

Sorry, all. I guess expectations weren't properly set about how long the get-together would be. I just got home. Needless to say, I guess we'll be postponing until next time.

And if I'm invited somewhere and told the get-together will end at a certain time, I'll try to get a clearer expectation so I can decide whether or not to cancel our session beforehand.

See you again in two weeks.

Just a heads up... I was "invited", as it were, to attend some work related doings this coming Sunday.

I was told it would take place earlier in the day, and I might be home in time to start running the next SS session by the usual 7pm my time. However, if there is no sign of me, it's because I'm not home yet.

Hopefully I won't be too late.

Torn apart by fate...

I mostly liked it. I thought the jokes were hilarious. Loved the occasional surprise cameo.

Spoiler:

I'm in the "end doesn't totally fit" camp. I would have fully accepted a more general message about the merits of building what you like instead of following the instructions, along with following the instructions exactly, giving each their merits.

A scene about a man with a collection who doesn't want to share it with his son was too far off center. Then again, I'm not a father and am far removed from my growing up environment.

But I do think the change from "keep my collection only mine and the way it is" to "build more freely and share it with my son" didn't relate much to the starting storyline. The storyline, as imagined by a child supposedly relating to how his father treats his collection AND comparing the collection and build environment provided to him with his father's, missed the mark for me.

For similar reasons, finding Nemo didn't entirely resonate with me either.

See you in two weeks.

I'll hopefully have the Session 71 log up soon.

It's been a long road...

My throne would have a holo-projection of me sitting in it, monologuing at the group. No way I'm going to sit there and be a flesh target.

Then I would press a button and drop the metal ceiling on them.

Not sure how to take care of the mess on the floor, I'm still working out the details.

Good overview, I like seeing all of the details. In some ways very similar to how my group performed when we played part of Red Hand of Doom a few years back. I'm curious. How did they manage to drown the hydra? I take it they killed Koth and he didn't escape.

As I recall, they hit the hydra with a color spray that drove it unconscious (the gnome has an ability that subtracts 6 HD from targets, so it's nasty...) and killed the only head it had above the water.

Koth tried to fly away but was shot out of the air and landed on the roof of the Keep.

I was just notified that Rath and Ciani will not be available Sunday.

That leaves 3 players, and I assume you don't want to lose your 2 main tanks for the battles ahead.
So I unless I see opinions to the contrary, we'll be holding off for 2 weeks.

See you all on 12/1.

When I played 1e/2e it became standard to expect that eventually all of the meleers in the group would get the gauntlets. It was a good way to make a powerful boss NPC, but inevitably their loot goes to the PCs, so eventually everyone gets a pair.

To not have them severely reduced the damage output.

From a design standpoint, that makes them broken. A "must-have" item, so much so that without it, you're doing it wrong.

I wasn't happy to see them reduced so much either, but overall I agree with the decision.

A belt of giant strength +6 is the closest standard magic item to accomplish the same thing - feats and weapon training help alleviate the need.

Yay for VTT-friendly scenario maps!

Many times the PDF maps are nice and friendly for copy and paste. But the extra attention to make sure they won't require any stretching to be square or photo-shopping to hide secret areas will be much appreciated.

I play via VTT because I'm more comfortable playing with people I like online than going with the more local options. If I had a group of local meatspace friends I would probably do that as well.

I have played real-life games in the past, but frankly the people I play with online are more enjoyable, not to mention more numerous. That's just how things worked out for me, not counting the occasional convention I attend.

As for the VTT itself, for me, it should provide a quick way of doing most of the things you have to do to play/run at an actual table so that you don't have to fight with the interface. Which VTT serves that purpose best for each group of players is a matter of taste. Playing with the wrong VTT can turn you off the whole concept of playing via that option. So shop around and pick the one your group in general prefers.
