As long as Gilfroy has easy access to you guys' butt cheeks, he's happy.

Wait, that didn't sound right...

Dedicated Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014

This is what happened to one of my players this weekend (where I GM Jade Regent IRL). muhihihi. ;)


I've never seen a party less suited for wilderness exploration. One of us with Knowledge (nature)? I guess it's a step up from none of us. What are all these city folk doing in a swamp? :P

I'll be interested to hear how this works out, Lore. Imo, it's a really severe power-down that's going to hurt the party in the long run. If they're getting killed with channeling, they'll get killed a lot easier without it. I'm running a 4th-level lore oracle, and she's utterly useless in combat. She mostly just casts light and then stays in the background waiting to hit people with the cure light wand.

Dedicated Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014

They don't have trouble with healing, in fact it wasn't obvious from Jerall's post, but his cleric was in fact a negative energy channeler (albeit using versatile channels). His healing took a backseat to the oracle of wind's positive energy, bard's cure lights and wands, and the paladin's lay on hands and paladin channel. Positive energy isn't the party's problem.

The new oracle uses positive energy - so can cast plenty of healing, and more importantly is built to be a frontline fighter. Previously there was only the paladin that could seriously play that role; something that I was suspecting would come to bite them sooner or later (as it did when the paladin went down in the encounter described).


Better then. I would still be interested in knowing how the Blind curse goes. Seems like it would be awfully limiting not to be able to attack or cast on anything beyond close range. Maybe I've just been in too many games with flying monsters or bad guys spider-climbing up walls or casting lightning bolts across a pool of lava. I guess if you just focus on buffing your party, you don't have to worry about where the enemies are. I'd get bored of the buffing pretty fast, though.

Dedicated Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014

Once he reaches level 5, he'll have 60ft darkvision. That is sufficient for the majority of time. Not ideal, but still pretty good.

RPG Superstar 2011 Top 4 , Dedicated Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014

Sorry for butting in, but my analytics picked up Lore's link...

I'm hoping that the bonus spells from the lore mystery and seer archetype help compensate for the curse. Plus, a familiar should help out too (especially the telepathic pseudodragon). Well, that's the plan in any event. Currently, the character has the best AC in the party, before buffing, so she should be able to contribute in a fight. However, we'll only know after the next session.


I will say this: one thing this party is prepared for is darkness. I think there's four of us who can cast light? :)

Dedicated Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014

Hah! light is a mere level 0 spell; darkness is level 1 - it consumes all!


You'll note I said "darkness," not "darkness". :P


AC 11/11/11; Max HP 20; Current HP 12 Effects:

One of my other GMs suggested using the new feature of the parentheses after our names for things like AC, HP, and ongoing effects. Is that okay, Navior?


I just went through and updated all my aliases so their gender, race, and class were in the correct boxes. :(

I have a DM who already had us putting our HP in one of those boxes so he could see it all at a glance on the Characters tab. Most people in the games I'm in don't even bother to update their HP on their profiles round by round, though. It's a lot easier to just type HP and effects information into each combat post than do all the clicking and waiting to update your profile on a separate page.

Star Voter 2013

It's an interesting idea, but Joana's right. If people aren't diligent about keeping their profiles up-to-date, then it won't be very effective.

Also, when you change the information in those brackets, it changes it on every single post you've ever made with that alias (just like changing the avatar picture), which makes it difficult to go back and check earlier states.

I think it's better to just write it in with each combat post. Admittedly, people often forget to do that, too (I know I do in other games I'm in), but at least when they don't forget, we know it's up-to-date with that post.

Gilfroy follows, adding guidance to Tevyn yet again.

Tevyn's butt is starting to tingle slightly, disturbing the half-elf on a very deep level.


AC 11/11/11; Max HP 20; Current HP 12 Effects:

You just need to hope that Gilfroy never picks up the Penetrating Spell feat.

Marathon Voter 2013, Dedicated Voter 2014

1 in 20 chance of the first thing, then 1 in 20 chances for each of the following, but since you need them all to work out perfectly, you multiply the odds instead of adding, so 1 in 20x20x20x20 is 1 in 160,000.

1 in 20 for each of the two 1's on the attack rolls, but aren't the 4's on damage 1 in 8 for Tevyn's roll and 1 in 6 for Malan's? Should lower the odds a little, right?

Marathon Voter 2013, Dedicated Voter 2014

Oh, weren't they all d20s. I confess, I hadn't actually looked.

Ah, I see. In that case the odds are 1 in 20x20x8x6, or 1 in 19,200.

Much more likely.

Just to give advance notice: This coming weekend I'm doing another long weekend of gaming with my old group. So Friday I'll be traveling, Saturday, Sunday and Monday I'll be rpging until I drop and Tuesday I'll be traveling again. My posting in the meantime will be seldom to nonexistent. Wednesday I'll be back at work and posting again to keep sane. :)


Last check-in before your long weekend, Wander? Have a safe trip.


Male Human Traveler / 8

Maybe. I'll probably check-in tomorrow before hitting the road again. In Canada right now (hi Navior!) after getting on the road early this afternoon.

Thanks!

Star Voter 2013

Hope you have a fun weekend, Wander!

I, too, am away for the weekend. I will have internet access and will be able to post, but unfortunately, I won't have access to my map files. So the combat may come to a bit of a pause. Weekends tend to be slow these days anyway.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Seeing as how you lowered Caulder's base speed for seven days as a house rule, I vote you don't get a vote on this. ;)

SEVEN days? Are you serious? Dang Lorekeeper! What the heck kinda DM are you? :)

Let me guess, do magical weapons melt if they're accidentally dropped in the campfire?! Like ... instantly?

Ooo! Ooo! How about, cure light wounds are divided in half, and rounded down. But if it's a one, you actually take damage for rolling so poorly?!

Well, at least a critical hit from the bad guys isn't instant death, no damage rolling necessary, regardless of level ... Is it?

:)

Caulder's speed is reduced by 5ft until fully healed + 7 days. A heal check to treat serious wounds (requires 2 uses of healer's kit) DC 20 reduces this to fully healed + 1 day.

Not my fault Caulder takes the "walking it off" literally instead of getting some TLC from his Abadarian friends ;)

First time I've ever seen mundane healing be better than magical. Besides, two uses of a healer's kit costs 10 gp; channeling + cure light + natural healing overnight is free. What would a true Abadarian do? :P

Dedicated Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014

@Javell: technically 7 days or 1 day with some proper medical attention ;) - she doesn't mention (or doesn't know) that she gets bonus XP when she roleplays her limp (something she naturally does anyway)

@Joana: Regeneration or similar effects would also fix the leg; but I figure that is out of your league/too expensive :P - in my book small-time healing like cure light restores life energy, not torn limbs; those heal naturally given time - or require potent magic, not some grown-up cantrip :P

Pssh. "Proper medical attention." Who can make a DC 20 Heal check at first level anyway?

Bonus XP? Score! I'll work the pain into every conversation like my hypochondriac great-uncle and be epic level by book 2. :D

And who fluffed that taking 18 hps of damage meant his leg was nearly torn off, O mighty DM? ;P

In LoreKeeper's defense, my PC went from full HP to -7 in one hit and ended up at -12 before he was stabilized. And, honestly, I kind of like the fact that a near-fatal injury has some lingering effects. When a PC almost dies, it's neat not to just brush it off and get instantly back to normal. But a 15-foot base speed is really slow. :P

DC 20 Heal check is run-of-the-mill stuff for the healers at the Bank of Abadar. What? You were planning to administer stuff to yourself? ...that would probably increase the DC ;)

I like to think of HP not as actual points of life, but ability to cope with damage. For example, when you level up, and go from 10 to 18 hit points, what really is happening is that you have the same amount of life as before, but you're able to cope with damage received significantly better. So taking 18 points of damage when you only have a total of 11, that equates to taking some 150% of the damage you could nominally take and walk away unscathed.

Dare I suggest: you could walk around in light armor for a week. :p

Malan did plan on taking shade under them.


LoreKeeper wrote:

Which, once again, has to be bought and paid for, on top of the armor he intends on wearing long-term that he just spent 350 gold on. I don't think they have an armor library that will let him wear light armor for free for a week as long as he returns it. His AC is bad enough as it is. Walking around with a 13 AC is more dangerous than only moving 30 feet in a double move. Plus, light armor doesn't fit the Bank of Abadar uniform. ;)

Anyway, I treated the speed thing as OOC knowledge, not in-game knowledge that Caulder would know. He didn't make a check of any kind to know that a healer's kit would prevent him from having the limp magical healing left him with. It wasn't him weighing the options; he didn't know he had any.

@Navior: isn't Tevyn/WanderWeir still trekking about? Not sure when he'll be on internet again - he'll have to fend of all his groupies first.

He said he'd be back today, so I thought I'd bump the thread up so that he can see it's his turn. :)

Actually, I got sick. I still came into work but then got hammered with three emergency projects at the same time. So I'm back, but, um, limping. And I can't even wear lighter armor to make up for it.

Sorry for being slow, guys.

Douena is a mythic level character (at least in the ways that count) but her healing has been a running joke the entire campaign: and we've got a little shy of 6000 posts already.

Don't forget her prowess in battle! I think she's actually hit something and done damage to it maybe three times in four levels. Most of the time, she never even gets around to drawing a weapon. The rest of the party keeps attacking things she wants to make friends with or keep for a pet. :)

Hey! The butterflied gnome oracle is running low on spells, having wasted so many on bless spells nobody remembers they have!

Ha! I just died on this. :)

And for what it's worth, Nazard, don't worry about the achievement feat bit, bro. You just do what you do! It's all good! You ain't gotta worry about me, I don't sweat that stuff. :)

There should be enough healing for his feat, anyway. I have a feeling that Rajah and Gilfroy will be laying hands on Melon's melons aplenty over the course of the campaign.
