Forgetting to recharge hand when finding a demon or cultists during adventure 2. Only messed up once.

some crazy things to keep in mind, that i found out the hard way, still fun though.

In the first challenge at the start of the book, the pc's have to pick one of them to undo the sails. they picked the squirrel familiar of the shaman, i let it slide because it was funny. i ran contest, thinking of the speed of both, and even without rolls the squirrel won, having climb speed helped out a lot.

in the third challenge, where they defend the ship. while the giant was still in his cage and covered, the ship captain used the heavy ballistia on it, and from then on ran to the other two ballistas on that side of the ship. the giant got to act twice....

the result for the race can be a little strange, with result of 11+ being overwhelming victory, my group got a 55 race score. makes it hard to say how far ahead they were and if the last event of trying to summon from the scroll would happen if you cant see the target.

My groups shaman has just found out he can cast awaken. and now always keeps 2 castings of mats on hand. they also have kept the ring of animal friendship. i feared what would happen when the giant octopus attacked. So just to confirm i asked them at the end of the third book,

"you get to the island, a giant octopus attacks what do you do?" me

"it rolls will, ring of animal friendship" shaman

now that part is set up the true question. how would you handle "the eel" when he slips off a ship and a giant awakened octopus is guarding the bay.

i can see a few things, 1 they fight, 2 octopus does not see him. 3 octopus wins because the eel is not buffed and who sees a giant awakened octopus guarding a bay coming. the last part of the adventure changed greatly.

over all it does not matter for the xp, i advance based on where they are in the story.

and as a side note, they plan on getting raptors and making them the island guide after awakening them. so yes they plan on going to raptor island some time.

This is for those that have made silly mistakes playing any set of the card game.

Playing deck 1 of wrath, and for the first 2 senereos we got down to only 4 turns left or so. we thought it looked a little low, When setting up for the third one we counted the blessing deck and found that we only had 20 cards in the blessing deck.

I could not find another thread with this idea, just wanted to make one.

anything with earth....

Strange idea, assuming you can use the lyre to build a ship. and as far as i know you still must have 1/3 the cost in mats on hand. could you use a ship or many ships to be broken down and remade as a more expensive ship?
i am all for this being proven to be wrong or not work, ect.

and as this is for skull and shackles why not use the infamy disrepute sub system that is there. yes it will eat up a lot of disrepute but heroism can be used by a non caster.

I think it will be legacy of fire, just my own thought on it. would be interesting to see how they would do the achievement system.

The terror....

my group of four has played the other two sets many times. we are never close to death and have never lost out of the 6 times we have gone from 1-6 in rise and skulls. only come close to having the time run out.

got to play it with my friends 4 of us. we managed to play the first two base set. took us 5 hours for 2 of them. the easiest ones i would think. we were hanging on by a thread the whole time both in near death and time out. I would cure for 5 as the shaman when my turn came to our summoner, by the end of his turn he had 3 cards in his deck.

this is a much scarier set... the terror...the terror....

For the barrier storm when does a player roll any dice for it. My view is you only roll if you are at the same location as the storm when you start your turn there. My friends view is if you are not at the location roll to see if it moves. Is one of us right is there another solution?

Just a though. so you can only take a number of burn points a day equal to 3+ con mod. each time you take one point of burn you take level in non lethal damage. now comes the change up, if the burn non lethal damage would heal normal both with magic and without. normal healing would be 1 point of non lethal per level per hour. and any magic healing would heal equal amount of non lethal and lethal damage at the same time.

so without magic healing each point of burn takes one hour to heal naturally. but you can still only have a number of burn points per day = 3+con mod.

now given that some games have it be the 15 minuet adventuring day, if natural healing was available it would not matter, if magical healing is possible it would use up some resources from the party be it a cure spell or a aoe healing some resources is used up.

other games have it be hours between fights,(days does not matter for this) so downtime would matter a bit more, each hour would make it that much easier to fight same goes with magic healing. but the thing is you can still only take an amount of burn = to 3+con mod a day.

bottom line if natural healing and magical healing is allowed for burn damage it does not change how many times a day it can be done.

sorry if it seems all over the place, just trying to put in my thoughts on this as best i can.

My group is playing the card game and I asked if they wanted to do the real thing. They said yes. Thing of it is they are three players so I am tossing in Ranzak the goblin as an extra npc to hopefully fill them out. Also doing it because on our second run through of the rise of the runeloards I played the goblin ranzak and one of the players hated him. So giving the player a chance to see him die. I think it will make his day. Ranzak says he is a raider where it says class best fit I could find was rouge.

my mind was on the melee and skill monkey roles, with the barbarian/alchemist, with a bit of casting of sorts. not to overcharge one role, like say a fighter barbarian would be.

also i find the idea of a four armed character fun. most likely archtypes will be alachemist trapbreaker, and barbarian Invulnerable Rager.

I can post as often as is required. i have a job that is just sitting around all night by myself giving me time to post on my phone.

Barbarian alchemist. Have the idea to have two extra arms , barbarian natural attacks and alchemist fareal mutagen for 4 claws 1 bite. But this is only possible if you allow it. And even then while raging and under effects of mutagen

Hmm alchemist barbarian four hands all natural attacks. Don't know what mythic works best for it. Better post later

Thank you for clearing that up, even more so before we run into such problems.

yep i am good where ever you start me out, in what ever wetland hill or flat.

So because at the start we have no army's does the first to post still get extra power. To me it seems like there is no tactical difference between the first and last post.

Mogar (mog)
race goblins (GB)
domains death, slavery.
home wetlands
advancement survival 1


Mogar is the goblin mother. She wishes to see her spawn populate and prosper. She does not care what they do to each other so long as they are the only ones around. to help her children she set out plague and sickness upon what ever world her git are on. from time to time it kills her own. but it kills off more then enough of any other races that might fight her baby's.

All other races should be wiped our or made to serve her little ones. she has gifted them with high reproduction rates to overwhelm any foes they might come to meet. while killing 1 goblin might be easy killing 10 is not so easy a task.

with a new world to be a cradle for her children she will push them hard even though she faces gods and there races. this new world will be hers at all costs.

will make a proper alias when game starts. i have to many alias made for games that i have not been picked for now they are just sitting there....

also i can post every day, am reliable having nothing to do but work, sleep and playing on my computer.

Going with a evil goblin god. More info when I am not on a phone.

The range of the rifle being 80 feet vs muskets 40 feet, and the misfire value being only 1 rather then 1 and 2. and reloading it as a move action, or free with rapid reload or alchemical cartage makes it worth asking.

I would like to know if this was correct or not for the Techslinger archetype of the gunslinger in the technology guide.

Techslingers still start play with the black powder blunderbuss, pistol, or rifle granted by the gunsmith class ability
what i call into question is the Rifle, the normal gunslinger starts out with

blunderbuss, musket, or pistol

So does the Techslinger start out with the option to take a gun that is that much better or was that a misprint.

dotting for interest. lots of time on this one, i will think of something fun. from a role playing stand point not just a roll one

also what about the advanced class guide will you allow things from it. it was said that it will be up online for free some time September.

4d6 ⇒ (6, 3, 2, 2) = 13 11
4d6 ⇒ (5, 4, 6, 2) = 17 15
4d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 5, 6) = 18 17
4d6 ⇒ (3, 1, 4, 4) = 12 11
4d6 ⇒ (3, 6, 4, 5) = 18 15
4d6 ⇒ (2, 1, 2, 5) = 10 9
4d6 ⇒ (5, 1, 5, 6) = 17 16
4d6 ⇒ (1, 6, 5, 3) = 15 14

now need to see what i can come up with.

I will also point out that the first book is called snows of summer. ... so no one has a reason to have a cold weather outfit. ...

an aid other masster summoner halfling.

I am interested in making a halfling oracle will have more info soon

some questions that might help, what is the point buy number? when are you closing recruitment? is anything not allowed?

do you know when you want to close recruitment, would it be a time, or a number of interested players?

i would say a gnome barbarian wielding two gnome paladins in spiked full plate that are chained to each other, making them gnome chucks. now that would be a scary sight.

I would be interested in joining, going to look at the players guide and build it up. i can post many times a day, but will only post when appropriate and not try to overshadow others with my posts

I think gnome gninja is the scariest because the g makes them silent. also would a gnome guild be said out loud to be a uild for that same silent g

It is Kabal

Wow I am shocked by the quick response. Thank you all for your responses and input. after looking at those that took interest i have made my choice. quick i know, but nothing is set in stone.

I am a little overwhelmed by the number of company and settlements that i have seen. I don't know who to ask to join. I would like a company or settlement that i could play with. the time that i can play is 11 am -4 pm pacific time. I am thinking of playing a fighter tank and i have fun gathering i have found.

only post like this i will make and i will not bump it.

pavaan here have not joined anything yet.

So what would be the interaction be between mythic longevity and the spell Threefold Aspect. would the mythic ability make it so you take no penalty's, or would they both work only in the way that is worded, with mythic longevity only applying to real age, and Threefold Aspect does the bounes and penalty regardless of what other ability you might have.

given the cost of the item, and how it talks about things in the price range of 2000, there not being many mundane items in the game, it could be safely thought of that this was meant to craft magical goods what with craft skills being able make magical items. with that in mind things with a final market price of 2000 could be made in 1 hour paying 1000 for the crafting mats.

i think the goal of this item was meant for magical item creation to be done faster and on the road. but just my thoughts on it.

In my game as the dm, the party monk zen archer, has taken on so many higher cr things by himself that just in the last game i tossed a t rex at them and the monk took it out by itself before the rest of the party could act they are level 8 and he took 2 crafting feats. and after that he jumped off the phantom chariot the party was on and ran to the t rex took a tooth from it and ran back hoping on the ride.

7 got your nose - confused.

Too bad for me I live close enough, but I dont have the skills for that job. I hope something i can do will pop up soon.

you know that someone must be named terry be it npc or player. and some one must make fun of the name. so they will die from dissing terry.

ask yourself, does a small size alchemist do less damage then a medium size one with the bombs?

ya will be interesting to see players making quests, be it fetch, or kill that guy type. i can see a number of vengeance quests be taken by evil players.

not to bring you guys down. but while this is a nice idea, life happens and i have seen games fall apart in just a week because of that, and in three months or so i would think life would happen for most people making it so they cant play, or not as play as much as they thought.

just food for thought.

so is this going to start any time soon?

got the message, going for a dwarf cleric heirophant that goes into the front lines. information will be up shortly

ya i got into about four pbp around the same time, and most of them, the dm just stopped posting. so while i hope things pick up i am not expecting it, if only from past exerances

i am interested, i will think up something that goes up agenst type but still can work.

I would be up for running a game, let me know what ap you guys would like to play in the most, as a vote or something, also i can easily make or alter some of the characters i have made so far to find into the other games. given a day or so.

the only thing that slows down my posting is when others dont post, otherwise i can easily post every day, but dont want to be annoying with them.

also I would have a rule that if you dont post with in one week then if in combat i would dmpc you, and if out of combat you just had nothing to say at the time and went along with the group. I like to keep a game moving when i can.

but remember that Mythic can be of any level of play, so it would be best not to limit yourself to the high cr monsters
