Sorry I've been AWOL guys. Totally lost track of time and didn't realise how long it had been since I'd posted. It's crazy at work this time of year...

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

Sorry for being AWOL. I totally didn't realise how long it had been since I'd posted. This time of year gets insanely hectic at work (I work in retail at a Game Shop) and I haven't been spending a lot of time at home lately, so I've been losing track of time.

I'll be away on a trip for a couple of days. May not get to post, so just move the story along and bot Calita as needed. :)

I'll be away on a trip for the next couple of days. may not get to post, so bot ecaterina as necessary. :)

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

lol... Well I was trying to think of a suitably wacky name to go with "the Confabulist", and it just kind of rolled out of my head and off my tongue.

Tim Tam Slam would be a good name for a Brawler though. :p

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

gah finally! Everything but her backstory is up and ready for your perusal.
I'll get the background finished ASAP. But in the meantime, all the main stuff is good to roll.

OK, character concept is locked in.

I'll make the build (hopefully tonight) and get ready to post.
How are you going Flash? I'd like to introduce your character soon or you will likely miss the boat.

Sent you a PM Moth. Sorry for the delay.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

OK, still deciding. Man, it's been harder than usual to pick what I want to play. Once I decide though, it won't take me long to get set up, and I'll pull my finger out of my arse and make a decision in time to start by the weekend...

I haven't seen / got Legacy of Dragons; good?

Yeah, not too bad. Lots of info on adding Dragon related perks to your character.

They finally did Sorcerer Bloodline powers for all of the other Dragons besides Metallic and Chromatic (I've been wanting this for the Umbral Dragon for forever).
Gave some Archetypes for having a Drake Animal Companion.
New Draconic Familiar options.
Enhancements for the Wyvaran.
Draconic Spells.
Draconic Feats.

I have to be selective about the books I get these days because of lack of cashola, but this was one that I have been looking forward to.

Looks good actually. What cavalier order does he belong to?

Dementrius, maybe we should take this offline... :)

Belongs to Order of the Dragon, which should be a good fit for the nature of the campaign.

Have you looked at the Drakerider archetype from Legacy of Dragons?

Are Psychic Classes available for play?

Still not decided yet, tossing around some options.

I'm happy for the Paizo psychic / occult classes from Occult Adventures. I'm not familiar with 3PP psychic and psionic stuff and would probably prefer to steer clear.

Yeah, that's what I was going for, the Occult Adventures Classes.

The 3PP stuff from Dreamscarred is basically just the old D&D 3.5 Psionics, but updated to Pathfinder rules.

I don't have their e-mail addresses, so if you have them you're welcome to send the files along Mothman.

Flash, do you mind if I have a look at it out of interest?

Yeah, that's cool.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

Dementrius, did you see my offer for the Magus Archetype? I've sent it to Mothy, so if he says it's OK then feel free to hit him up for it.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

I'm gonna have to have a good think about what I'd like to play.
How many people do you have in the group Mothy?

I only ask, 'cause I tend to play character builds that are a little out of the box (and subsequently can be a bit underpowered). But I don't want to play something like that if say, there's only gonna be 4 of us and we need to cover all bases, or it's going to leave the group lacking in areas and a detriment to play. In that case I'd just play something more vanilla.

Pat, was that a Hitch-hikers Guide reference I spotted there? Nice one. I'm liking this guy.

Good eye. You even got the potted plant one.

There is a healthy soupçon of Zaphod Beeblebrox in my rendition of Sly Nye. As well as the Mad Hatter and Coyote.

Yeah, that was awesome. I favourited you post Pat, just for that reference. :)

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

First of all: Greetings one and all and thanks Mothy for including me in your game. :)

Second: If anybody wants a template for statting up their character, I have a Word .doc with my PbP template in it.
Just shoot me your e-mail address and I'll send it along to you.
Taking a look at almost any of my aliases will get you a fair idea of what it will look like (although I have also been tweaking it over the many years of PbPs, so they will all look slightly different).

Third: Dementrius (and Mothy), I created a Magus Archetype for a 3PP Kickstarter Campaign book that never saw the light of day. It is called the Gun Magus (super inventive title, I know). If either of you would like to take a gander and see if you'd like/allow it, I'd also be happy to let you use it (as long as you don't share it around).

Cheers
Flash :D

Happy Birthday for yesterday Mothy. :)

Thanks man.

Eh, I was working, but it was ok. The previous evening I went out for a bit of a birthday dinner and to see a movie - 'Snowden', actually surprisingly good.

Nice! lol... I've only seen kids movies recently. Suicide Squad was the last "adult" one one I saw. I wouldn't mind seeing the new Dan Brown one, Inferno. Finding time, spare cash and someone to go with is the problem.

I'm happy to go with whatever everyone else is. Calita is a "go with the flow" kinda gal, so unless something specifically catches her attention (such as the current Gargoyle dilemma), she's happy to run wherever the adventure takes her.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

It finally appeared today. So that's a month after the US release (I was mistaken before when I said it had been over a month, I realised it after the allotted editing time frame has passed).

Is that normal? I'd still appreciate that follow up about the release dates if it's not too much trouble James.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

James?

I'm starting to get a bit annoyed about it not being available now. It's been released in the US for over a month now. >:|

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

Wow... Once again, I checked Saturday and nothing, skipped Sunday and check today and BOOM! lol

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

Any news on the Audiobook front James? Still nothing available for me. :(

Same here. It's always good to play with new people, but especially good to play with friends. :)

I have a question regarding the Audiobooks on Audible.

I know that some people (in the US) are already listening to their copies, and they have told me that the release date for it said the 15th of August. I went searching for it yesterday to use my monthly Credit on it, but I can't find it anywhere (in the AU Audible Store).
I've searched for Starspawn, Star Spawn, Pathfinder, Pathfinder Tales... nothing.

Are there different regional release dates for the Audiobooks, and if so, why?

Hmm... I'll have to check with Macmillan and see what's up with that. Are the other Pathfinder Tales novels showing up for you?

Yep, all of the other books are showing up without issue.

I did have a problem a few months ago with another PFTales book showing up a few weeks after the actual book released as well. I'm not sure if other regions got that book earlier than I could access it though. The other audiobooks, I've been in the middle of "reading" other books when they released, and didn't get them straight away when the Dead Tree became available, so I'm not sure if it's an isolated or ongoing problem, as I only have a small sample set to work with, sorry.

Hey Sharoth. Don't get used to me, I'm still time poor and keeping up with FAWTL takes way more brainpower than I currently have at my disposal. lol

*sigh* I hate realising how stupid I actually am.

Just bought two books from here and realised that if I had of actually started and then stopped a subscription (once they shipped), I could have had the corresponding .pdfs for free as well. :(

The niftiest item in the hoard is probably the cloak of the yeti. Constant endure elements in cold weather, +1 natural armor bonus, +2 on intimidate checks with the hood drawn up. Gaelin could use it, but so could virtually anybody else in the party, and I don't want to be greedy.

It is a nifty item. While Ecaterina would certainly benefit from the +1 Natural Armour, she already has Endure Elements (Cold) permanently active, so I feel it's a waste and should go to someone else.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

Unseen Servant is the only spell on my spell list (and I apparently can't copy spells from a Spellbook), so that's the only scroll I can use.
I'd like the Silver Dagger (although if anyone else wants the centipede poison they're welcome to it) though, just 'cause even though it's not MW, it seems like something that would appeal to Ecaterina.
That's all for me. :)

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

I hate posting from my phone. That's why I initially gave up on my PbPs, because I just couldn't dedicate the additional time it would have taken for all my PbPs. But that's just me, if you've made it work Pat then I take my hat off to you.

Group loot has not been divvied up. If there are things you can make use of, by all means. Only loot Gaelin has taken so far was a cold iron longword.

120 gp
Rohkar's corpse yields A finely-crafted set of leather armor, a very nice crossbow, a nicely-made short sword, three vials containing oily substances, 15 gp, a blue potion (healing), a white fur cloak, a slim book with the simple legend: 'spells' written on it, a necklace with an amulet with what looks to be a blank black face, and a ring of several keys With the key I mentioned previously on it, and a scroll tube.
A gold ingot stamped with the Taldan Royal seal
A spyglass
three small tiger eye gens
fine leather boots of a smallish make
A silver dagger
A leather portfolio containing a sheaf of parchment
Donsby's gear: +1 handaxe, composite longbow, 12 arrows, wicked dagger

Some things may still need to be identified.

Cool, thanks. I can Detect magic on anything that needs it and depending on how long we are in town for, I can also Identify anything that needs it. Depending on what the others are after, I would be happy with either of the Daggers. I don't think I can use the Spellbook, and depending on what of the items are magical (if any) she possibly might be interested. Also, is there anything on the parchment in the leather portfolio, or is it blank? She might be interested in that as well to store her paper in depending on whether it would be better than a scroll case.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

Not asking for handouts or special considerations, but I'm just double checking that Ecaterina didn't end up with anything fancy from the adventures; money, items, etc... I doubt she would have since she was a bot for the majority of time so far, but I'm updating my sheet and just wanted to make sure there's nothing I need to add.

If I wanted to play a min-maxed fighter build then I wouldn't be choosing a Halfling.

He doesn't hit as hard but he has enough charisma to utilize some successful intimidate or diplomacy rolls to possibly shift the course of battle.

If people are going to complain about me not min-maxing a set of stats and instead building a "Character" to "Roleplay", then those aren't the kind of people that I want to game with. I play Characters, not uber maximised walking stat blocks. Yes, of course I try to optimise where I can, but that is a secondary consideration. I play Pathfinder (or almost any other RPG) to Play a Role, not to Fill a Hole.

I've played small melee before and loved it. Don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't do something you want to do purely because it's not an "acceptable" use of that character/class/race. If you want to do it, and it's within the rules, then you play exactly what you want to play.

I've tried playing Healers in MMOs and failed miserably. I can never heal people on time, as I'm usually too focused on killing things. :(

And then there was that one time in a Pen and Paper game that I tried to stabilise a party member and failed 4 heal checks in a row (I wasn't playing a healer, I was playing a TANK. After he died, I realised that I could have simply poured a healing potion down his unconscious throat and all would have been good... :/

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

Yeah, sorry to throw a spanner in the works. I totally didn't realise that Pat was botting Ecaterina along. I figured he would have just written her out. If I had of known sooner, I would have rejoined 6 months ago when I got my internet back. :(

On a side note... You are truly crazy Pat!
I've only posted small things from my iPhone here and there, and it drives me absolutely mental every time. How you're running everything from you phone astounds me...

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

I guess since no one else has commented, and Moth seems happy, that everyone is OK with my Dusk Elf stats?

So I'll finalise my character tonight and post it up.
