No gribbly monsters in the document.

don't you mean a foaming mug shield and a one-horned helmet? :-)

well, right now my son and I are by far the most advanced players. Rest of the clan are young (son's age of 12 or younger), and/or don't care all that much, and/or simply inactive (a lot of that does have to do with the summer vacation, of course) But many of our members don't attack during clan war, for no apparent reason.

My boy has actually found a different clan, independent of me, that he wants to join. I'm going to look into that first because, you know, it's mah boi! :-)

I like your rules, and I will keep you gents in mind. I don't necessarily care to be promoted, but I don't like to be the ONLY GUY in the clan who donates troops to the Clan War castles (that happens all the time--the biggest reason our lower members get zero- or one-starred is becasue of my awesome L4 wizards and L5 barbs i'm always donating them!!)

Hey--is your clan looking for any new members? My son and I are both TH8 (he's ahead of me w/defenses and troops), and we're currently not satisfied with our clan. I'm not an insanely skilled player, but I get by. Son is better than me.

Want any new blood? (if you don't that's OK, just say so...)

Silken Caravan :)

You're right, and I'm impressed. +1!! Should I ask how you knew? I didn't give much detail about it in my last post...

that one was a lot of fun for us, because
1) the aforementioned 2 PrP's & Paizo brass visits

2) using software/laptop projector from a new company (dam, can't remember THAT name either!!) Was very cool

3) the survival rate on that scenario was very low. I remember having NAILED the first battle, and looking at the table next door about a half hour later, they were still on the battle (they were also using a projector, so we could see it on the wall). The good guys were getting X'd through at a depressing rate, until the DM stnads up and yells "T-P-K!!!" There were a lot of TPKs that scenario. We, though, ruckin' focked it. (I know for a fact that the DM was fudging some die rolls in the last fight. Desna was snickering up her sleeve at us; we were doing everything right but the dice were being b1tchy, and the DM didn't want to punish our good playing for that)

If it is a double session, go for City of Strangers 1 & 2, or Hydras Fang Incident + Perils of the Pirate Pact. They work ok as there is a theme, and they are pretty straightforward.

If memory serves, Hydra's Fang was my first PFS ever, back in Season Zero--Paizo's first introduction of PFS into GenCon.

incidentally, I'm convinced that the introduction of winning 2 Prestige Points (a practice started in Season 1) originated from my group in that GenCon. In one of the sessions (not Hydra's Fang, I'd have to look in my notes to recall which one) we had an NPC with us who owned a slave. Our caravan got attacked, and one of my Andoran compatriots (DMHW, that would be Chris, if you couldn't guess!) told the guy that we'd protect him if he freed his slave. The slaveowner agreed, and the DM, after consulting with Paizo brass (who kept poking their heads into our session because we are AWESOME!) he awarded us 2 PP. As far as we know that was the first time anyone ever got 2 PP in a PFS session.

that Gencon was almost as cool as 2013 when DMHW and I were there together, for his virgin trip. Man, that was the coolest, wunnit bro???


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

So...how the hell is everyone? I'm sick as a duckin' fog (some type of cold or seasonal allergies or both, it's kickin' my arse like you read about)

Anyone hear from ZDM? Are these campaigns going out to pasutre, or are any going to continue?


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Had to start on lvl 2 Tesla just to spend gold since I keep topping out on gold at 3 mill. I really need a 5th builder so Im saving gems.

I'm staying at 3 builders; historically I haven't been able to keep enough resources on hand to justify more. Besides, I've spent money on "free" games before, and I won't do it anymore. :-)

Quote:
I'll probably upgrade barbs, giants, wallbreakers, wizards, dragons...hmm... I hardly ever use archers. Might have to check out that tactic.

I pretty much only use archers when raiding for resources, because htey're cheap and fast (just like I like my women BAZINGA). I like wizards duing clan wars when hte goal is to break everything (they're simply awesome in low level clan castles--they EAT low level packs of giants for brunch), but I'm not very good at keeping them alive. I tink I may need to look at some strat guides.

^ no worries there Vaughn. Ive had a couple of 300K+ raids lately and am about maxed out gold wise with almost no way to spend it until my TH is upgraded...4 days left! Woot!

So I kicked off my TH8 upgrade (complete 6/17). While that's cooking, I'm keeping 1 builder free so I can upgrade walls at will/as $$ comes in, in that 8 days. I'll have all to lvl 6 by the end of today, no prob. And, with any luck, I'll have the 3,000 more dark elixir I need to kick off Barb King lvl 2 overnight (but that will more likely be tomorrow PM, that's kind of a lot for a n00b like me to get in 1 day).

tomorrow (6/11) I'll have Dragons lvl 2. In 3 days will have 2 barracks capable of training dragons, w00t. going to try to time it so I have enough elixir to hit the Lab upgr immediatley upon completion of TH 8. i'm thinking of upgrading, in this order: barbs, archers, wallbreakers, wizards (because high level wizards in low level Clan War castles prevent enemy stars yo!!), giants, healer, then whatever.

Man, past couple days have been ROUGH for CoC. After 2 weeks of only minor attacks on me, I've had a half million of gold/elixir raided in 1.5 days, and my own raids have been lackluster. I seem to have hit a funk. :-( will try to shak out of it.


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

*all* level 7--impressive! I'm still working on getting mine to 6. that's partly the reason I decidd to hold off on TH 8; yesterday I got dry-gulched for half a mil each over three attacks, so obviously my defneses aren't as good as I thought. most of my defenses are maxed, but th eones that aren't take mucho $ and time, blarg.

I will have dragons tomorrow, maybe just in time to make on eClan War attack in our current match up. I'm eager to see dragons + barb king + lvl 3 rage spell in action, yo!


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

I'm just about ready to think about town hall 8. I've set up my non-war base so that raiding me for resources is not easy--you need to really want to get in there to get my goods--so hopefully I'll be able to save quickly enough. I'm hoping within a week or so I'll start that 8-day upgrade.


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

I'm embarrassed tosya, I'm not *nearly* as close to a lvl 2 barb king as I thought. I somehow missed a decimal place; it takes 12,500 dark elixir to upgrade, not the 1,250 I thought. D'hoooooooo


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

I'm very close to lvling barb king to 2. My son suggested I use the gems I had sitting around, and it's a very great thing to have, really. Totally worth it.

i think keeping town hall exposed is probably a good idea that i should use. I got totally dry-gulched by a dude yesterday whose troops were all lvl 5+, I had no chance--and prob because of a high-ish trophy count (about 1300 right now).

it's so tough to decide what to upgrade at this point, everything takes so dam long!!


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

I'd describe it as "Warcraft Lite" (note: NOT World of Warcaft, Warcraft II)


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

I just looked you up. Man, you must farm like the dickens to have afforded those walls bro! I like your setup--it must be real hard for folks to use healers on you, the way you've got your air defenses set. I will consider copying you, even though I like my current setup...

We just SQUEAKED out a victory by 2 stars in the last war. The other team had come on strong early, but petered out at the end. We had some bad attacks ealry too, so no one thought we'd win. I'm going to throw together an .xls to keep track of who's not pulling their weight. I think 2 wars with 0 attacks is reasonable to feel my boot, don't you agree??


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

one of my son's friends created the clan. Someone then opened it, and we've had a number of jokers join us (I *hate* dead weight...) I'm going to start keeping track of who doesn't bother to attack during clan wars, and show 'em the door.

i'll check you guys out too. :-) My son is our heavy hitter, he's a coupe days away from a lvl 8 town hall, and he's got dragons. I'm at 7, will get to 8 reasonably soon, and will also have dragons reasonably soon. I'm curently the only one in our clan with a barbarian king, yo! (I knew I was saving all my gems for SOMEthing good)

Vaughn takes in Kenta's comment, and stares pensively at him for a few minutes. Then he leans forward toward him.

Kenta, here's the thing. Bobo is no adventurer. He's got a good heart, and one thing is sure, he's NOT lazy--he's been working his tail off maintaining this place. If he wasn't here, we wouldn't have such a comfy, safe place to rest up between our little jaunts. that, to me, is worth a heluva lot; Bobo is providing me with a *home*. And, he and Kyren are blood. Kyren has proved himself many times over, and he'll help Bobo, if for no other reason than their blood ties.
.
Kyren is my friend, and he's helping Bobo, who is also my friend, so that's why I'm in.
.
Now, you and I haven't known each other too long, but fighting the good fight shoulder to shoulder with another counts for something where I'm from. So, if not for Bobo, and if we're not getting paid...

Abercrombie's review is fairly close to mine

In the end what I loved about Jackson’s adaptations of the Lord of the Rings was that, in spite of what he cut and what he added, in spite of the small liberties and the amped-up action, he somehow achieved the alchemical balancing act of making the films feel like The Lord of the Rings. What I don’t like about Jackson’s adaptations of the Hobbit is that they just don’t feel like The Hobbit.

I'm probably going to get gang-raped for this but...is that a bad thing?? honestly, I tried reading the Hobbit to my boy...and it had its slow parts...


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Thanks, Stretch! I get the concept, but the finer points might take a while


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

DragonBlood, I agree with you for the most part, on liberties taken. Example: I loved Harry Potter 3. Even with the liberties taken, I felt that they did not take away from the essence of the story.

on the other hand, I HATED Harry Potter 4. IMHO they wrecked Dumbledore (turned him into a panicky old man who was barely in control of anything) AND Harry (by skipping out on his throwing off Voldemort's Imperius curse in their duel, they missed an opportnity to show Harry had heart/skill/will rather than just luck), to the detrement of the story.


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Vaughn looks only slighlty confused at the piece moves, but he appears to grasp the basics concepts.

Opening check: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (20) + 1 = 21 <--+5

So, go for the center of the board to maximize your options, right?

Middle game: 1d20 + 1 + 5 ⇒ (12) + 1 + 5 = 18 <-+4

Hmm, seems we've beaten each other up enough to go for the throat...

End game: 1d20 + 1 + 4 ⇒ (10) + 1 + 4 = 15

Huh. Well, I guess I don't get the endgame all that well.

Funny, this pretty well describes my current chess ability!! Decent opening/middle game, crappy endgame

You know, Al, I agree with you all the way, and in a real battle that's what I'd try to do. But games like this are a good way to practice different thinking, strategy, stuff like that. Be prepared for anything, right?
