Starting on 10/10/10 from 7pm EST to 11-12 or so, I plan to begin my Serpent's Skull campaign, run on TTopRPG, my own personal online virtual tabletop.

Currently, as players:

Yasha - playing an Indiana Jones bard
David - a fighter.
Guy Humual - playing a witch. with a broken gun.
Rathendar - playing Lini
Justin Franklin (maybe) - playing.. I dunno.

This game is more of a hop in style, so in the event one of the regulars can't make it, anyone else can hop in with a leveled up iconic and play for a session.

I won't be going heavy on backgrounds at all.

Currently, I have all the players I need. The best way to see about availability is to pay a visit to the Paizo Chat Room, or just stop in to say hi anyway! Chances are most of the time the players will be chat room regulars. This thread is a placeholder to record our intrepid explorers' exploits.

Woo Hoo!

This is what I got so far:

Spoiler:
Kavi
Human Female Witch 1
AL CN
Init +1; Spd 30
Deity Sivanah; Homeland Alkenstar
Str 8, Dex 12, Con 12, Int 20, Wis 14, Cha 10 (middle age)
Defense

AC 11, touch 11, flat-footed 10

Feats
Extra Hex (cackle), Extra Hex (Cauldron), Brew Potion (Cauldron Hex)
Traits
Get the Cargo Through, Rich Parents
Offense
Melee cane -1 (1d6-1)
Ranged light crossbow +1 (1d8/19-20)
Base Atk +0; CMB -1; CMD 10
Special Abilities Witch’s familiar, Cantrips
Witch’s Hex Evil Eye, Cackle, Cauldron
Spells Prepared (CL 1st; concentration +6)
1st – Cure light wounds, mage armor, sleep (DC 16)

There's likely to be some changes, I'm thinking that I don't really need the rich parents trait. I took it as a lark more then anything.

We have a potential new player.

Rathendar's girlfriend will be playing a summoner. It will be her first time RPGing. Her PC boarded with Lini in Magnimar.

Andoran

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

Tomorrow, 10/10/10 around 6pm-7pm EST, this campaign will begin.

I have yet to hear from Yasha, even though he has built his PC already.
I haven't received a PC yet from Justin, and David has to finish his up.

Rath, Ciani and Guy's PCs are finished, or very close to it.

If your PC isn't ready by the time we start, you'll have to either finish it up while we play or grab an iconic, since we only have 4-5 hours to play, and it's been planned for a few weeks.

See you at the game!

I plan to post a journal of sorts here. You're welcome to post here in character as well if you like.

The Chat Room isn't responding this morning.

Watch here for updates in the event it doesn't come back up today.

No changes since the last update.

Andoran

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

Yasha just emailed me and said he'll be unable to participate in this campaign. Life stuff and all.

Someone in the chat room (assuming it comes back up) will be able to grab an iconic if they wish and join us.

If any of you need to send me information, my email is in my profile.

Andoran

The chat room is up again. Hopefully it stays that way.

FYI: My hosting is being wonky this weekend. Make sure the get TTopLaunch 1.04 on the TTopRPG main page before attempting to update. There is a link for it in the most recent announcement.

Put it in the same folder as your TTopRPG.exe.

Thanks.

Andoran

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

The server appears to be operating normally again. You should be able to update normally without problems.

I do recommend going into Resources -> Download TTopLaunch to get TTopLaunch 1.04 though.

Chat appears to be down, I'll post my IP when I get the server up and running. I'm still in a PFS right now, so stand by.

EDIT: the PFS is running a tad long, stand by. I'm playing player host so I can't drop the game yet.

and Misfortune hexes are semi unlimited, once per target per day, but as many bad guys as we stumble across.

Right. 800 xp for surviving two traps.
So 266 xp more for each.

You'll very likely hit 3rd level next session since you're so close (right after the night fight, frankly).

So you may want to have 3rd level versions of your PCs ready if we decide to level up mid-session.

interesting, and okay.

Also, Lini is out Entangle also, i used that to open up the night fight.

i guess...can update the paizo page writeups, and deal with macros in Ttop if we level up mid session?


Kavi is leveled to 3

I've been assisting another department with delivering a project tomorrow. They just reported a bug so I'm logging in and working from home. If this becomes frequent then I may need to postpone the game this week. I hope it doesn't come to that - I appreciate Ciani making herself available.

Andoran

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

And 2 minutes before we start, work calls and gives me another bug to fix. Sorry, hopefully those won't take long. Grr.

j/k, that should put us at approx 7443 xps.


Hey Pygon,

I just thought I'd give you an update. While I'll be continuing to lurk around for now, looks like my schedule is not open enough for me to drop into the game right now. I'll let you know if the situation changes...but I hadn't even considered some of the things that would be coming up with breeding season coming up for the geckos and stuff.

Again, thanks for the invite and I'll let you know if/when I can take you up on it.


To summarize our session this week: We the party found three traps, and two traps found me! Bad traps. Fortunately the traps seemed to be built for people larger then myself and the spikey bits only messed up my hair instead of impaling me in the chest!
