Actually I can Spellstrike during the first round using the Bladed Dash spell. Blade dash in, make an attack, then it's the Spell Combat attack.

4th day post surgery. I was able to take the bandages off for the first time tonight. My palm and wrist are bruised, 6 stitches, no swelling or sign of infection. It's just sore and feels tight. Signs of carpal tunnel syndrome seem to be gone.

Don't worry, Karlan is usually fine... it's the half-orcs that go 'missing'.

Kenta is coming along well, and I'm actually really liking the fortuitous way his backstory seems to be coming together.

Zyren - any ideas on how you'll work us in? Kenta will basically be a free agent (Ronin) and lounging around enjoying sake-bombs and good songs while waiting for a journey his most recent master would have approved of.

Very Rough Background:
Grew up in Xa Hoi (Empire of the Dragon) and served as part of their military. Initial faith was with General Susumu (the Black Daimyo) – an LE deity of archery, horses, glory and war.
His service was passed from his lord to a diplomat bound for the western isles and he was dispatched to guard him. On the journey was introduced to Kofusachi and became a devotee.
The diplomat arrived first in Cheliax, though the Opera House was not to his liking. Some wandering before making for the Oriat district in Kaer Maga.
Death of diplomat in Kaer Maga, made him turn Ronin. Keeps his master’s bo staff as a memory. His wakizashi sheath is empty – blade having been taken from him when he was unable to save the diplomat.
Need to work in my boar at some point.

Wears black o-yoroi armor that is beginning to fade and wear… but his helmet is different and bears an enchanted faceplate (hat of disguise equivalent). When the helm is closed the faceplate takes on the guise of a happy smiling buddha face - like his god Kofusachi... until he is stirred to anger and the facade melts away to be replaced by that of a murderous oni (like a noh mask of a demon).
His companion Buta is garbed in red leather lamellar and the boar's tusks are decorated with rings of jade. The boar is black and shaggy haired.

ZZ:Heart of Journeys:
Ich versuche schon seit einer Weile irgendeinen Grund zu finden, warum Kosti bei der Gruppe bleiben sollte. Er wurde von seinem Auftraggeber verraten, für den er Abenteurer finden solle. Die Abenteurer die er gefunden hat erforderten von Anfang an viel Fantasie um sie als geeignet für die scheinbare Aufgabe anzusehen.

Nachdem Ragnvald jetzt mehrfach Drohungen gegen Kosti ausgesprochen hat und er jeden Grund hat, solche Drohungen von dem blutdrünstigen Priester zu fürchten aber bisher keinen einzigen Grund, der Gruppe in irgendeiner Hinsicht weiter zu trauen als er Attalas werfen könnte - wirde er denke ich, die nächste Gelegenheit nutzen, sich abzusetzen.

Sorry, die Kampagne liest sich wirklich witzig, und ich spiele gerne in deinen Gruppen, aber ich glaube nicht das sich der Spass einen Fremdkörper in dieser Gruppe zu spielen bei mir noch einstellen wird.

Edit: Das ist kein Angriff auf irgendeinen der anderen Spieler - sie haben ihre Charactere und spielen sie gut, aber Kostis einzige Aufgabe war bis jetzt den Hampelmann zu spielen, um sie bei jedem Hakenschlag des 'Auftrags' irgendwie bei Laune zu halten, ohne das ich einen Grud finden kann, wieso er das weiter tun sollte - wie gesagt: kein Angriff gegen dich, kein Angriff gegen die anderen Spieler, aber so funktioniert für mich die Gruppe mit Kosti einfach nicht.


Divine Gamemaster of the Abyss and below...

Fey:

Ehrlich gesagt, wundere ich mich auch, warum Ragnvald so abgeht?! Also am Ende gibt es schon eine Erklärung, warum auch der Red Raven nicht anders handeln konnte als er es tat und damit wird auch Kosti quasi von jeder Schuld und Verwicklung freigesprochen. Die Frage ist also eher, ob du danach weiter mit diesem Haufen von Irren weiter ziehen willst :)

@ Both new Characters in HOD:

I would like to introduce your characters when the party reaches the Bazaar of Secrets.

A place only known to a very elusive group of traders in the grey and black market economy of Kaer Maga and the Pharasmian clergy.

So basically you just have to come up with a stroy how you happened to be there. Kenta could have been a working as a bodyguard for example and his contract has just expired and Tel could be there as one of the Pharasmian "overseers" of the Bazaar who check and make sure that there is no zombie trade.


OK thanks ZZ

That's a good place to start

@Shifty, to our fallen comrades and those whom are not at home. In the States it will be Veteran's Day and I see that Rememberance Day is today for you fellas down south. I thank you for your service, brotherhood, and I lift a pint to those who went before us.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Well said Bilbo, my thoughts exactly. Remembrance Day here in Canada tomorrow.


@Spaz, Our Memorial Day is similar to ANZAC Day from what I can tell, but I wanted to send my thoughts to those in the Commonwealth. All to often we forget our brothers in arms who serve and fall beside us have a day seperate from our own. Such is life when you serve so closely you forget about national ties and think in terms of personal relationships I suppose.

Cheers BBB!

Yep at 11 o'clock it was a minutes silence.

Odd time in my family, a bunch of my Grans (mothers side) brothers went off to WWII to fight the Japanese, not as many returned, and one was in Singapore/Thailand as a POW for a long time when it fell and he never came back quite right.

On my dads side it was Navy, and not as many deep seated issues!

On a tangent... the chap who was captured:
Joined 2/30 Bn at Bathurst; transferred to 2/18 Bn 21/1/1942; taken on strength with 2/19 Bn on 17/2/1942; embarked with "A" Force on 14/5/1942; sent from Thailand to Japan after Railway completed; on board Rakuyo Maru when torpedoed and sunk by US submarine on 12/9/1944; rescued by USS Pampanito; returned to Australia and disembarked Brisbane ex USS Monadnock on 18/10/1944

Sadly, the US sub thought it was a Japanese warship (not a prison transport) when they torpedoed it, so the prisoners were floating in the shark infested ocean (after being burnt by the burning diesel from the sinking ship) for several days before the US warship went back and fished them out.

Both of my grans served in WW2 - one was a Heereswerksmeister for tiger tanks at the Russian front (became a pow in 1945 when fighting against the British at the Rhine), and the other one was in a mountain infantry divison in yugoslawia (nasty battlefield). It's not very common that I had two grans, in most German families, at least one stayed in the war.


Ahhh cool.
It must have been a pretty crazy period back then...!

I, too had both grandfather survive the war. One of my grandfathers served and was wounded early enough to survive the rest of the madness, one was an officer of the police in the Ruhrgebiets-city of Bottrop, which kept him aeay from the front lines and also helped him (with the hereby again appreciated help ho his coworkers) to protect his jewish mother-in law and his, by virtue of that, non-arian wife, my grandmother.

My father served as an anti-aircarft auxiliary as a kid and was later almost part of the Volkssturm - his group was still in training in Oberammergau when the war ended, he got on a pretty crazy trip back to the Ruhrgebiet where he was later cought by American soldiers (who showed a lot of compassion to the younglings, thanks a bunch!).

One branch of my fathers family lived in England for some time when the war began, and I actually had a grand-uncle who served as a british spy in a german factory in WWII.


My grandads were in the Army and Navy.

My mom's pop was on a ship that left Pearl Harbor just a day or two before the attack. He had lied to about hisage to join and was 16. I don't know too much other than little bit as he had passed long before I was born.

My wife's grand father was also in the Navy and "manning the rails" during the signing of Japan's surrender.

Two other grandpas were both Army. One was a Sherman tanker and the other in Patton's infantry with the Big Red 1. The same unit I am assigned to.

In Germany, what is the holiday to remember your men and women.

There really isn't one - foremost because most veterans are connected to the atrocious crimes of the nazi regime. The BRD has only quite recently begun sending soldiers into conflict areas (under UNO/NATO mandate) so there thankfully aren't many fallen soldiers of the Bundeswehr. The introduction of a veterans day was (and is) an area of political contention.
Most familes will remember fallen soldiers on All Soul's Day.


I see. Thanks, Fey.


Divine Gamemaster of the Abyss and below...

We don't remember, we just feel guilty.


My father fought WWII from the dangers of the Aberdeen Proving Grounds. He put in lights and motors. My uncle though, died on the Russian front, after refusing a local position in the SS. There are many people in Germany that should be honored for their sacrifices, but the politics are not there, might never be.

Eh, give it a hundred more years.

Eventually people will stop punishing their dead grandfathers for buying into a shiny but ultimately poisonous dream. That they fough and died for their country should be enough.


Male Pale Master

^ word!


Female Human-ish

Eventually. Maybe. IDK, everyone with a "white" skin tone in the US is made to feel guilty for slavery still. Which, I find to be rather ironic for us mutts who have both "black" and "white" bloodlines.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Simple fact of history shows that if you trace the bloodline back far enough then there has been some horrific stuff done on all sides. The more I wiki-surf history the more I know (like the fact the English once sacked Copenhagen).

I'm with Tark - measure people by the acts of today and don't punish them for things that happened before they were born. Lord knows that still leaves enough dipsh1ts in the world to keep us busy :P


Female Human-ish

Agreed.


ZZ. Background's all done.


Male Wayang Samurai 6

Crunch is mostly done for Kenta - just need to finish off the gear and also do the stats for the wee boar.
FYI - Toji is a sake brewer.

Having just finished an escort / bodyguard job is fine with Kenta.


I respectfully disagree about the appropriateness of the Brave Young Fools, yes it has the adventurous quality about it but some tales do begin with a bunch of strangers dragged by circumstance into adventure. Once again this is not D20 style of "adventure", most in a grim and gritty world are just people surviving or doing what needs to me done, and unlike many actually doing it. And while Zad is very strange as an adventurer, Mareike has the most adventurous background of all of us. Home and family destroyed by evil, she grimly pursues vengeance so others may not know her fate, or just because she's angry. That's a classic beginning to many stories, though maybe you were not raised on endless Westerns. :)

I'm good with Glory Hounds but it seems even less fitting for Zad and Mareike then BYF.


Not in use

I can twist myself into a pretzel and make Glory Hounds fit for Zadlu and us... if you assume that the Glory sought is of the spiritual variety rather than monetary or fame. Both Marieke and Zadlu seek the favorable gaze of our respective gods - so that is the Glory that we Hound.

Glory Hounds it is then. I will make the necessary movement of its track. @DMZZ, how do specializations work in this game? I have one that I have not yet allocated and it seemed like it was really more up to how the DM wanted it to work out in game than what it does mechanically.


Divine Gamemaster of the Abyss and below...

You choose one of your trained skills and then check the specialisation list for that skill. Then you just choose one and you gain a bonus fortune die whenever the specialisation is relevant.

For example: You take diplomacy as a specialisation of charm - whenever you try to use charm later in a situation that can roughly be characterised as "diplomatic"^^you get that fortune die bonus.

I would have gone all stainless steel with an enameled horn exterior. Plastic is sh it e.


Aye - and after looking in a bit more detail... they're charging $55 for shipping overseas!


So by specializing in Hand Weapons, then I always get a Bonus Fortune Die? If that is the case, I will apply it after this encounter.

It is cheaper and much more beautiful to get a real, well prepared animal horn. (and those are pretty expensive ones, at least one shop in Germany has good drinking horns for well below €15...no need for plastic.


And now I know... :)

That site you linked is pretty awesome Fey.
