F&+~ these wights with a chainsaw! Two negative levels, and I'm already down CON. GRAAAAAAAAAR!

Next up: a level of Barbarian! Pally/barb rage-smite!


For some reason, my dog was starving yesterday and ate four meals instead of his usual two. Today, he has to go out every two hours. In the snow. And I have the chills.

*sigh*

As long as you're here, we may as well break out the scotch.

Whisky. It's what's for dinner. And breakfast.

I'm here! What's for dinner? I mean, how can I help?

You can fix the window. There's a snow drift on the floor now.


You damn right.

Not that we can testify to, anyway.

I built a swashy fighter for fun. Pretty tough looking. Weird thing about HeroLab is that I only built one level. I usually map a character out for 20. This is like driving at night with headlights that show 10' of the road. Maybe they have a planning facility.


Female Humanish

Cayden is better for rapier proficiency (favored weapon). Swashbuckling with a starknife don't make it.


One thing to realize stylistically in Nine Princes in Amber is that Corwin is effectively immortal, barring violent death. So he's doing things that he's done time and time before through the centuries. They're routine, in a way. If you wrote about your life, you might describe the first trip to the grocery store in detail, but not all of them after that. I think some of the brevity effectively underscores the difference between how he sees events and how we would. It also gives us a taste of the ennui of immortality.

So this all started because there was a drink on the cocktail menu at Lovecraft with some fanciful name that was described as "whiskey, with sweet vermouth and a dash of bitters". I asked the waitress "So, what's the difference between that and a Manhattan" and she said "Yeah, it's a Manhattan, although I like that you know your cocktail recipes". So even the bar is betting we don't know what a Manhattan is :)
it's like someone telling me a two wheeled terrestrial vehicle operated by manual footpedals is a starhopper.
I have no idea what this sentence means. Are you sober yet?
I'm not drunk. You guys are drunk.

I wish.

How can Manhattans be lightweight? They don't have any mixers, not even the splash of cola in a LIIT.


Manhattans are awesome and not lightweight!

So, I'm guessing you guys aren't going to post any pbp updates tonight, right?


It's almost 10 pm there, right? About time for the serious drinking to start.

You funky monkey.

You're still spelling correctly, so can't be that plastered. :P

This was my New Year's present to myself. Still sipping at it now and then. It'll put hair on your chest.

You're obviously a druid.

Can't wait for the drunken posting to start.

On the minus, I DO hate that 'small' pointy weapons supposedly do less dmg than 'normal' sized ones. :(

This is why I always play a class that has sneak attack damage if running a small character.


So bored with my hair. Should I go black/blue/purple or red/gold/black?

Prince was 57. That's a bit too close for comfort!

Glad you are joining us, whenever that may be. I think in a month we should have a good idea of what the party may need to round it out, if anything.

Does the House Grulios have a family animal that symbolizes them?

The house animal is the cricket and the house motto: dulcis est veritate (in whatever passes for Latin in Golarion - probably Thassalonian).

Also, GameMastery Guide, Ultimate Magic, and Ultimate Equipment are not allowed sources, correct?

Well, I don't have these in HeroLab, since what I bought was about my limit (or a bit beyond). You can add items/spells in manually if you like. I just couldn't drop any more on this game, sorry.


Female Humanish

Same as last answer. I will look.


Female Humanish

Uhhh, I thought I bought Equipment, but am away from my tower and can't check. I will verify tonight /early tomorrow.


Female Humanish

Ooh, I haven't read it in French. I now feel inadequate.

Mahorf, you obviously need the assistance of a librarian...


Female Humanish

OH NO! I use the Lazarus extension for Chrome so I don't lose posts. And you can always type long stuff in notepad, then copy/paste when you are ready.

I'm SO sorry about the loss... that's awful!

Oh Freehold: Last night and this morning's accumulation atop my car.

I waved. Did you see me?


Yeah, I got sick of getting beaten on by hail and tornadoes in the Midwest. They're talking about a record number of tornadoes in Colorado this year. Maybe 20! Hahahahaha! In St. Louis, we called that a bad day.

And hail... I don't think folks who haven't seen it realize how awful it is. I ran outside in a moderate hailstorm to grab my poor cat, and that stuff hurts!


It's still snowing. o_O

It's not so bad when you've got fresh bread, cinnamon rolls, garlic-parm mashed potatoes, and beef stew.

Welcome to the discussion thread for the Hell's Rebels Campaign. Please look at the Campaign Info tab for background information and rules about character creation.

To begin character creation, click on "My Account" in the top line menu of the Paizo Forums. You will be prompted for a signin even if you are already signed in (to verify that you are you before account changes are allowed).

The third box in the left column is for Messageboard Aliases. To start a new character, click the "Create New Alias" switch at the bottom of the Messageboard Aliases box. All you need to create the alias is a character name. You can select a picture later, and you can change the name until you have made 10 posts under that name. You do not need a faction.

Once you have created the alias, it will be displayed on your alias tab, visible when you click on your name on the top menu (Hello, Name). When you click it from the alias list, you will be on the information panel for that alias. You can edit the alias with the button on the upper right and store all sorts of information there, from stats to gear to spellbooks - whatever you like. By convention, we put our stats first. Here is a good, brief example of a formatted stat block. Formatting features like italics and [/b]bold[/b] are described at the bottom of each text entry box, under "How to format your text." Click the Show button to display the list of tags allowed in the posting.

Right now, I am preparing the campaign and recruiting a few mentors for those who have not played Pathfinder before (or who have not played much). You can discuss questions/concerns here, or you can PM your mentor for specific advice/information.

Welcome! Feel free to talk about character creation outside this forum, on Vent or other personal chats. A lot of the base classes and races should look familiar to you, though their roles may differ from what you expect based on how the character is tailored. A fighter can be a tank, but so can a cleric, who also heals, etc. We'll stick with core classes and races to make it simple.

Getting Started!

1. Download and read the Hell's Rebels Player's Guide. The link is under Player Resources on the Campaign Info tab.

2. Think of a name and create an alias with that name.

3. Post here and introduce yourself!

Don't worry too much about a lot of the stuff in the Campaign Info tab. We'll take time to get the characters built and the party equipped, and we'll go slow enough that you'll get the hang of things.

I used to sleep under my desk on a fairly regular basis when I was living to work. Fool.

I've fallen asleep in the computer room, sitting with my feet in a hole on the raised floor and leaning against the humming drives. Very cozy.

Rumble strips saved my life several times before I got CPAP. I fell asleep all the time then - sitting at the table eating, sitting at the keyboard, watching TV, reading, driving, working, on the exam table at the doctor's office, in the dentist's chair while he was drilling my teeth. The only place I didn't sleep was in bed at night.

I used to run a table for friends, including my roommate. We've all moved to different places now, and she misses playing a real RPG. She has resorted to playing WoW.

She polled her WoW buddies and has about a half-dozen people interested in playing a Hell's Rebels game together. I can probably run it pretty easily, considering this group will be way ahead, but it might be a little tough with 6 noobs. They have varying degrees of experience with tabletop gaming but little to none with Pathfinder.

I was wondering if any of you would be interested in mentoring one new person through the first book of Hell's Rebels - helping with character creation, teaching them the ins and outs of playing their class, helping them level up from 1 to, say, 3? I thought if they could each have a mentor who would help them via PM, we'd keep the discussion thread relatively clean and they wouldn't be so afraid to ask what they might consider stupid questions. It's especially useful if you speak WoW, but not necessary.

I am going to make it core-only to keep the amount of material available to a minimum, so we won't get half-dragon summoners or anything.

If this is something you'd be able and willing to do, PM me please. And if you don't feel like it, don't worry! My roomie speaks both Pathfinder and Wow and can translate for me.

Thanks!
Treppa

Beef stew is simmering in preparation for being snowed in tomorrow. Sushi in the fridge for tonight. No work tonight or over the weekend.

Might be time to break out the scotch.


Why undo such gorgeous architecture? Many cities are renewing their old-timey train stations, not making them look like an anchor store in a mall.


Hold that line!

What do you mean, "they're behind us?"

The mile high state is reporting in. I think I'm already on the map, twice.

8-14 inches of snow expected here on the mile-high lowlands, woo!

For some reason, I'm dying for eggs today. Avoiding them is generally no problem, but I'd love nothing more than a plate of fried eggs with buttered toast this morning. OM NOM NOM. Maybe I'm not really allergic.

My brain is trying to kill me.


Female Humanish

I usually glaze over at long descriptions of combat, but I found the airship combat to be the best part of the book for me; perhaps because the propulsion and steering gear made interesting manoeuvres possible. Butcher writes combat well in general, so I guess that's no surprise.

OK, I keep streaming music from Itunes at work to keep my work internet connection open. (And to keep my sanity), usually Streaming Soundtracks . com.

And I kid you not. As I read this line, The closing theme from Star Trek IV, The Voyage Home started playing.

O_o <Mind. Blown.>

I'm one with the cosmos, man.
