Have a great game!


Thank you, Don, we did.

And I don't care what DM Doh says, I don't think we've seen the last of the Chopper.


Glad you enjoyed the prologue. Looking forward to kicking the adventure into high gear. See everyone at the Swallowtail Festival in 2 weeks.

I'm guessing 'swallowtail' is supposed to make me think of birds with distinctive tailfeathers, but instead I'm thinking of the worm ouroborus...


Nope. Swallowtail is in reference to swallowtail butterflies, the symbol of Desna.


Whatever the Ourobouros link is, it doesn't work. :(

Just a picture of the lizard of the same name, which is kinda cute.


It is cute and I had no idea it was a real animal!

Osirion

Neither did I! I was just looking for a cool ourobous tattoo image or something to link!

Now I want one for a pet. (Until I read up further and find out they stink or squirt blood from their eyes or only eat live maggots or something, then the enthusiasm will fade...)


Or all three!


You might now have to face something that squirts blood from its eyes.


Aargh!


I can't believe that thing exists.


DM Doh, forgive me but I forget: are we taking maximum hit points for first level, or some other system?

Osirion

Also, average starting wealth, I hope, at least? 'Cause that's what I used for equipment purchases...


Yes on both accounts.


Work in progress.

So, that's most of him, I think.

I'm not happy with him having an Intelligence of 13--I was thinking much dumber--but I need it for feats I'm going to want later.

I reserve the right to play him dumber than his stats, though.

With a Wisdom of 7, he can be well-read, prone to quoting odd things ("The truth is you're the weak. And I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin', Ringo. I'm tryin' real hard to be the shepherd..."), but short-sighted, impulsive and with the common sense of a mule, that got kicked in the head by another mule, and is more mulish than normal.


+1 for the random Samuel Jackson monologue quotation.

Marlon Brando is like Robert De Niro; I think they most often play stupid people (Terry Malloy, Travis Bickle) better than intelligent people.

But, I can certainly do short-sighted, impulsive and mulish!


Does anyone know about any official Paizo rules for fighting with a cloak?

Although, looking at some youtube videos, it looks like they didn't use it for bluffing so much as for parrying away the enemy's rapier.


I found this:

http://www.d20pfsrd.com/traits/combat-traits/dueling-cloak-adept

Dueling Cloak Adept
You are trained in using your cloak to disguise your body and deceive your enemies.

Benefits: While wearing a cloak and using an Aldori dueling sword, you gain a +2 trait bonus on Bluff checks made to feint. Additionally, every time you successfully feint while wearing a cloak, you gain a +1 dodge bonus to your Armor Class until your next turn.


Link

Thank you, DM Doh!

Well, I don't have an Aldori duelling sword, but something to grow into, I guess.


If you wanted to use it with a rapier I'd have no problem with that.


Good to know. It's still a bit down the way on my feat progression chart that I made bringing my character up to 10th level.

As if he's going to survive to 2nd...

You scare me. My character's 'progression' is something like, 'Maybe some bow feats? Remember to get laid. Make sure he can speak Auran and Terran by 5th level, when he can summon air and earth elementals...'

That's why I have a wife. Hey, Stella!


NH Pathfinder here! I'm down in the Dover/Portsmouth area, play weekly on Saturdays with three others. :D


Game free or die! PC death is not the worst of evils!


just popping in, Seacoast gamer here, GMing rise of the runelords currently and playing in Serpents Skull.

Grand Lodge

Just curious, are there any game stores with gaming tables in the Seacoast region?


I believe Jetpack Comics in Rochester NH has gaming tables set up.

Osirion

So, assuming Doodle is up for carpooling again, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel?

Also, same Bat-pizza? You're all in luck that Pizza Hut doesn't make beer-battered bratwurst and sauerkraut pizza, 'cause I'd totally bring that...


I'm somewhat hesitant about tonight. I've seem to caught a plague and am coughing, sneezing, and feel a bit under the weather. My son also seems to have caught the sniffle as well.

Stay tuned to see if tonight is going to happen. Everyone is welcome to meet up and play something if I'm not able to make it/run.

I'll post as soon as I know for sure if I can drag myself to the game.


Car-pooling is good.

I was thinking, though, that we don't get Pizza Hut. It's a half-hour ride for the pizza to cool and I believe there is a place right in that strip mall.

But, that is all assuming that DM Doh is well.

Get well, DM Doh and son!


Ok, I think I can make it to the game night. Hopefully I won't infect everyone at the table. =)

If something changes I'll update this. Everyone have a character ready to play?


Yay!

No pressure, though. If you're sick, you're sick.

Oh hey, website is finally back up! Not ordering from Pizza Hut then, headed to rendezvous site delta-black for exfil.


Guys, I'm sorry to do this so late but I have to bail for tonight. I'm still feeling like poo and am actually a bit dizzy and don't feel comfortable driving. =(

Sorry guys.


:(


2 weeks then?

Osirion

Bumping thread, because I keep losing it. Silly forums!

Osirion

Oh hey, it's been two weeks-ish. Hope you (and the little one) are feeling better, Astral, and not just for purely selfish reasons!

Let's all pinky-swear that there will be no discussion of the election going on in the real-world while we participate in the Swallowtail festival!


Voting is for--...

[ahem]


I wants to kill! I wants to kill! I wants to kill!


Bump


Hey everyone! Yes indeed, I am feeling much better. I seem to have gotten over the plague. My son, Asher, only got mildly sick from it as well and is doing just fine now.

On to the game! I'll be able to make it this evening and we can start the adventure at the Swallowtail Festival. Get ready for fun, games, and mass carnage, er umm.....

I'll be showing up around 6pm or so. Looking forward to starting the game up. See everyone tonight.


Yay!

Set, I'll pick you up at RD at 5:15ish.

I'll PM you my phone number in case anything comes up--I expect to be sleeping for most of the day.

The picture was so awesome that it completely distracted me from the cleverness of this post! Delayed favoriting!

Spoiler:
My parents were stolidly upper middle class. Probably well-to-do merchants, specializing in lumber imports. I got the best education and culture that a parvenu bourgeois could afford, but what I really liked was Chelaxian fencing.

I quickly took to the rapier and mastered the rudiments of all of its varied forms: rapier and main gauche, rapier and dagger, rapier and cloak! etc., etc. (Don't worry! I don't know anything about swordfighting irl!) I even began to make a name for myself in the local tourneys and prizefights.

Meanwhile, unbeknownst to me, my parents' successful business was beginning to attract the attention of Don Scarnetti, who you probably know more about than I do. For some reason or another, my parents pissed him off royally. I, however, in the flush of youth and success, was blissfully unaware.

I married young, to Estella du Bois, a beautiful but penniless young Korvosan debutante. I won the prestigious Manticore's Moon prize held biannually by the World Chelaxian Fencing Federation (WCFF) at Kaer Maga and quickly got started on a family.

My parents tried to interest me in a solid, reliable career in lumber goods, but I wanted nothing of that soulless life, counting coppers and tallying columns.

But, alas, disaster struck when my parents disappeared with a caravan of expensive cherry woods on the usually quite safe road to Maginmar. I was terribly stricken, of course, not only by the loss of dear parents, but also at the enormity of the task of running Malloy Lumbers and Papers. It was, oddly enough, around this time that Don Scarnetti began to take an interest in my fighting. We came to become friends and he even helped me out once or twice in business matters.

When the fire that burned down the family lumberyard happened, around the same time as the birth of my third, favorite son, Michael, Don Scarnetti was there to help me out. It was only with his generous material assistance and emotional support that I was able to battle my way through the first two rounds of the WCFF's Golden Gorgon of Galduria Bout, but, to my surprise, that day he had some unexpected words of advice.

Crestfallen, I went back to Sandpoint and took to the bottle and yelled at my wife and kids a lot. I started to put on some weight, and spent a lot of time in my underwear, drinking and scratching under my arms. Frankly, I was a real mess. Luckily, Don Scarnetti was merciful and gave me a job as a night watchman and sometimes has me attend to the occasional small matter.

---

To be continued. Maybe.

Bump.

Does this get me a freebie feat, DM Doh?


Yes indeed it does.
