Black Tom's Rappan Athuk Discussion

Play-by-Post Discussion

1 to 50 of 89 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | next > last >>

Male Human (mostly) Mystic Theurge

Here is the new thread. Is anyone interested in having Yelm join you?

It depends on what you prefer, BT. We've got a big party, so if that will complicate things for you, we can send him on his way. If not, heck, what's one more to the party! Invite him in.

I will be rather in and out for the next couple days. We are having some local flooding, so I am without tv and the net right now. Not sure when it will get addressed, so if need be, autopilot Artival. thanks.

Guys it was nice knowing you ....
Since our deaths will be sudden and gruesome , I just wanted to say it now !

Rappan Athuk! Who reminded BT of Rappan Athuk ! This guy should be drawn and quartered then raised then burned alive then flogged until death then ...

Oh wait it was me !

Lol, is it really that bad? Oh, and we are almost done with the Grey Citadel? Don't we still have to figure out the tower, where the demons are coming from, uncover a succubus, and what happened to the towers owner?

Yet you keep giving me ideas... ;o)

Seriously, I've had more deaths in Grey Citadel than in Rappan Athuk so far, but that may have been because the cleric player was on vacation, so they tried to tackle the dungeon without a cleric. Bad idea...

We'll see how the rest of the Grey Citadel turns out, but I hope to be able to finish sooner rather than later if you get my drift.

M Aasimar Paladin (Warrior of the Holy Light ) 5

I played a Druid in a Rappan Athuk acmpaing once. I prepped reincarnate twice every day.

'Nuff said.

Male Human (mostly) Mystic Theurge

Guys, I lost a couple of players in my Serpent's Skull campaign, and I thought I'd give you the first shot at it in case any of you would like to join.

They are still on Smuggler's Shiv, so what I'm looking at is for someone to take on one of the NPCs. You can read the start of the thread if you are not familiar with the campaign.

If you're interested, I think we can adapt their stats somewhat. Just let me know and we'll work something out. There are two spots open as it looks right now.

M Aasimar Paladin (Warrior of the Holy Light ) 5

Most productive pile of $#!+ ever!

Female Halfling Sorcerer (celestial)

Wow, we haven't been using this much, have we?

I agree to selling the Efreeti bottle. I don't like the odds that we would be able to control it.

What we would want from it, however... I don't even know where to start, I'm not used to getting to make a wish list that doesn't involved weapons and armor, neither of which would do her or the rest of the party much good (at least, not in her hands).

I'll get a list together for Artival this evening.

I think Artival would like a Lesser Rod of Empower spells. That goes for 9k.


Im thinking a belt of dexterity + 2 and a headband of alluring charisma +2 for Tika

Female Halfling Sorcerer (celestial)

I'm debating lots of things still - hope you don't mind if I list some here...

Ring of Protection +2 for 8000
Lesser Metamagic Rod of Extend for 3000
Lesser Metamagic Rod of Enlarge for 3000
Lesser Metamagic Rod of Bouncing for 3000
Headband of Alluring Charisma for 4000
Boots of Striding and Springing for 5500
Circlet of Persuasion for 4500 (maybe Tika will want to look that one, too)
Pearl of Power (2nd) for 4000
Bag of Holding
Handy Haversack for 2000

I'm leaning toward several smaller items at this point, as you can probably guess... gotta go, will think about it some more - suggestions are always welcome!

M Aasimar Paladin (Warrior of the Holy Light ) 5

I'm thinking Lion's shield and headband of Alluring Charisma +2 with the difference coming from trading in my current shield.

Female Human Barbarian 7

Hello all, I am back. Happy belated New Year!

Wow! That is quite a haul we just got, very nice.

Ka'kara would want to have her greatsword enchanted further with the Furious ability from the Advanced Players Guide. That would cost her 6,000 gp.

Second on her agenda would be to up her cloak of resistance +1 to one of +3. That would be an additional 8,000 gp.

So a total of 14,000 gp if we can get our already existing items further enchanted by the ogres contacts and resources.

Not sure how much we are all going to get each but it seems well over 10k once all the stuff we are selling is added together.

32/42 HP

Lyria will take a combination of the following, to be determined after we know exactly how much gold each character receives:
Pearl of Power (1st - 1,000; 2nd - 4,000; 3rd - 9,000), possibly two of these.
Improve her Cloak of Resistance (same prices + refund for her present cloak)

Female Halfling Sorcerer (celestial)

Oh, yes, Cloak of Resistance! My shopping list is not getting shorter!

So, we are selling the dagger, right? What else are selling?

Male Human (mostly) Mystic Theurge

Do you want some more time to finalize your shopping list, or are you OK with going back to the dungeon with just whatever items Brazzer can get you on short notice?

Just wanting to push on but I don't want to screw you out of your well-earned treasure.

Female Human Barbarian 7

Will Brazzer be able to have my sword and cloak further enchanted or do I have to buy completely new items? Either way I would vote to wait til we get our new equipment before going back in. The dungeon has been there a long time and will wait another few days until we return I would guess. Nothing is pressing us to rush back is it?

M Aasimar Paladin (Warrior of the Holy Light ) 5

Good point, we can always roleplay downtime for a post or two, or handwaive if you want to get back to the action whichever you prefer.

M Aasimar Paladin (Warrior of the Holy Light ) 5

So everyone include anything you're trading in or exchanging, we'll add tht to the value and come up with a total we can divide equally then make our orders.

Female Halfling Sorcerer (celestial)

Shopping list for Roylenna, in order of priority since I'm not 100% sure what our total budget is:

Headband of Alluring Charisma +2 for 4000 gp
Lesser Metamagic Rod of Extend for 3000 gp
Cloak of Resistance +1 for 1000 gp
Handy Haversack for 2000 gp

Thanks for pushing it forward, Gregori.

M Aasimar Paladin (Warrior of the Holy Light ) 5

Headband of Alluring Charisma +2 4000gp
Lion's shield 9170gp

Trading in current +1 heavy steel shield market value 1025gp

Gregori owes 2145gp

If need be I can wait on the headband.

M Aasimar Paladin (Warrior of the Holy Light ) 5

Oh hell yeah! Updating now.

Female Halfling Bard 1

Belt of dexterity +2 4000gp
Headband of Charisma +2 4000gp
If the share is 10000 each upgrade her spear to a +1

Female Halfling Sorcerer (celestial)

Roylenna is updated and ready to go!

Male Human (mostly) Mystic Theurge

Tried to copy the map for you but it went all weird on me. Never seen anything like it. Not just the dungeon that is cursed. Even the module is. :-(

Guys , work is insane at the moment . feel free to DNPC Mahaffy for the time being

32/42 HP

I'm also quite busy, will probably finally level Lyria tomorrow or so.

Female Human Barbarian 7

Sorry to hear about your crisis BT. I hope your doing ok now. Good to have you back :)

Female Halfling Sorcerer (celestial)

What she said. Really hope things are getting better.

M Aasimar Paladin (Warrior of the Holy Light ) 5

Sorry to hear about the presonal stuff, hope it gets better soon.

Male Human (mostly) Mystic Theurge

Just wanted to thank you for your patience and support. I consider all of you guys my friends, even though we've never met, and I don't know the first thing about you. But you've been great all this time, through thick and thin, and I hope the campaign will run for a long time to come. I own a lot of Necromancer stuff to torment you with.

So just thank you for being my friends. In the very peculiar way that is PBP. :o)

Male Human (mostly) Mystic Theurge

It's been a month since we heard anything from Mahaffy, so I'm sending him home (for the time being).

How do you feel about continuing without a rogue? Do we need to recruit one? Honestly you are a bit many as it is, so I'd prefer not to, but it also feels unfair to send you into the world's deadliest dungeon without a trapfinder.

Let me know how you feel.

Female Halfling Sorcerer (celestial)

I'm open to whatever the group thinks.

Female Human Barbarian 7

Personally, I would have to say based on the description of "world's deadliest dungeon" going into it without someone to search for traps is a death sentence but the only one who knows that for sure is BT himself. Bearing that in mind I think Ka'kara has the best perception (and most hit points) and can take the lead. She can search for traps, just can't disarm them. I really can't see her taking a 20 too often though as she is a might impatient (she will on things that LOOK like traps however). So I guess she'll lead and do a cursory search for both traps and secret doors as we go. Do you want two separate rolls for secret doors and traps BT? The rest of you should search for secret doors also as we go. Her perception is decent but nothing to get too excited about.

P.S. LOL, you do realize that Mahaffy was the only person arguing to keep Ka'kara in check, right?

M Aasimar Paladin (Warrior of the Holy Light ) 5

The traps in the dungeon may indeed be the death of us in a case like this, though we can try it and if wee seem to be getting hacked up too often, go back and recruit someone.

Male Human (mostly) Mystic Theurge

About the maps, unfortunately they are still messed up and I don't know how to solve that problem. I'll try to get you a battle map when you need one and see what i can do about the rest.

It's kind of annoying when you've paid for a pdf to find things like this.

If I can help, BT, let me know. I think you still have my email.

Male Daytona 500 DM / 12

And I'm still lurking, if you decide you need a rogue. I could make up a "trap detector" in record time :-)

Male Human (mostly) Mystic Theurge

I appreciate that, scranford, but we're already too many and I'll feel obliged to let Mahaffy have his spot back if he resurfaces. But if you should feel inclined to run Mahaffy for the time being I don't think he'd mind.

Male Human (mostly) Mystic Theurge

Seriously, does anybody know how I can get my dot back. I keep overlooking this game. Apologies.

I have no idea, BT. Mine disappears randomly, but after I make a post, it always comes back...

Female Halfling Sorcerer (celestial)

When I lose my dot, I usually have to make a post using my main alias and save it. Sometimes, I can save the post with the main alias, then edit the post and put the "correct" alias in. Sometimes that doesn't work, though.

Male Human (mostly) Mystic Theurge

To scranford: Welcome aboard and thank you for your patience.

You can whip up a character if you feel like it. 20 point buy, standard gear for your level. You start with half the xp of the moste experienced member (which would be Roylenna), that is just above 15000 xp. Don't have my books here, but I hope that puts you at level 5. You start with 1 hero point per level and you are welcome to port any points from the previous campaign, and you can use those when rolling for hp.

A cleric or rogue would be nice, as would an inquisitor or alchemist, who could potentially cover both roles (healer/trapfinder).

We can work out the details here.

Male Daytona 500 DM / 12

Woo! Hoo! Thanks. It will probably be tomorrow, as I am out of town, and would like to consult some of my books first...but thanks for the invite. I'll get something put together to help with both, and read the game thread to get caught up. Thanks again.

Male Daytona 500 DM / 12

Sorry guys. Character delayed a bit. I'm thinking either an Elven Cleric of Calista, or a Gnome Inquisitor. Still putting the bits together, and need to read the game thread, to see which would fit in the best. Also welcome to any suggestions from the group. I'll add lock, and trap finding ability to whichever way I go.

BT - How

1d8 ⇒ 5
1d8 ⇒ 1
1d8 ⇒ 2
1d8 ⇒ 7

Male Daytona 500 DM / 12

1d8 ⇒ 5
1d8 ⇒ 5

spend a couple of hero points here.

Male Daytona 500 DM / 12

Well I looked everywhere to find a way to add "Disable Device" as a Class skill for a Cleric, but couldn't find one. So it seems that an Alchemist might offer the best combination of trapfinding/disabling, and healing. So hopefully tonight I'll get my Alchemist character back up. Maybe the original Yurggen will have to make a re-appearance.

Male Daytona 500 DM / 12

Here is Kem Het for review. I'll get up the profile tomorrow hopefully, if everything looks OK.
