I have knowledge nature and survival. We also have a bard with knowledge skills.

Acceptable sure, but I will caviat that with the statement that we could use that Dwarven Fighter. We have no major damage dealer since the other fighter is a defensive build. But, play whatever character you want to play. :)

I do: 1d20+10 for 1d8+11+1d6 flanking with feral mutagen and sword now

Next level with my feral mutagen I will be doing:

1d20+8 three attacks at 1d8+12, 1d6+6, 1d6+6 +1d6 (sneak attack) flanking/power attack.

I'm built like a barbarian.


Jman: Ahhhh alright. :)

- Gauss


Like I said before, we have the skills covered, but we don't have anyone to be good at them. And how are you doing three attacks at level 3? I'm curious.


Feral Mutagen has three natural attacks for 1d8bite, 1d6claw, 1d6claw.

Jman, I am curious though, your statblock states that you are doing 2handed sword and unarmed strike. How are you doing this without TWF penalties? (Or should 'and' be an 'or'?)

- Gauss


Oh, he has a bite attack. That explains it.

I don't use them at the same time. Have both for DR down the road.


Thats what I thought, Im not used to Herolab stat blocks. :)

I have not checked this thread in a few days. I do apologize. If you post a question here feel free to PM me if I don't answer within 12 hours. You don't have to wait 12 hours, if I don't answer in 12 hours it is a good sign that I missed your post.

Other than Grease, Infernal Healing, and Mage Armor, does anyone have any recommendations regarding spell choice once I hit third level (Summoner spell list)? First level spells, that is.


I assume you already have Rejuve Eidolon and Summon Monster I. Enlarge Person, Mount, PFE (despite it being a good spell for you you can still cast it), Life Conduit (UC, turn your Eidolon into hp storage for you), Ray of Sickening (UM).

- Gauss


M Human Expert 3

I think I'll pick up Enlarge Person, so my eidolon can still be a little scary.


Treasure:

16 dogslicers

8 crossbows

160 bolts

176 gold peices


Before we even started the game I was looking at ways to be able to communicate since I did not know roll20 had its own voice system, which seems to be not working so well.

People that play FPS(first person shooters) online normally play in teams, and they talk to each other. From what I was able to find many of them use Ventrillo, but it lags at times. I seen sites use record and compare it with Mumble, and mumble sounded better, and had a better response time, so if everyone is ok with it we can try that. I think it is free so all we would have to do is figure how it works, and it does not take up a lot of resources.

Anyway let me know what you think.


M Human Expert 3

Mumble works for me, I've heard good things about it as well. Want to take some time this week to try it out?


Male Human Paladin/20

Skype is easy and free as well


My vote is skype but I can try Mumble as well (have never used it before).

- Gauss


Since we have such a large group, will you be enhancing the CR? Because if we have 8 people fighting an enemy set up for 4-5 I doubt we'll even need the healing our one cleric offers. Remember, in two of the last three games (I can't attest to the first) no player has even taken damage. Conversely, every enemy we've faced up until now has been dispatched in less than four rounds, and it only took that long because half the enemy pack tried to run as soon as we showed up.


I am okay with mumble or vent or skype. I have only used vent in the past but have noticed it takes a bit of cpu resources.


You are fighting goblins, and I am playing them to their nature with silly tactics such as using improvised weapons, and grappling people with armored spike on.

One day that shall pass. :)

Vent does use resources, which is why I want to go with mumble.

Skype is one on one as far as I know unless you pay for it.


Male Human Paladin/20

I have hosted 6 person Skype calls without paying. The eight characters attacking will grow even more with more summoned creatures. It is going to be a clustered map.


I think what we need is a way to streamline the combat and exploration elements. Here are some ideas for accomplishing this:

1) Some kind of time limit for actions. Failure to act results in delaying your initative. (If you decide you are ready you go after the current creature that is acting.)

2) If we put all OOC discussions on skype (or whatever) then that should help deal with the wall of text during combat.

3) Use an initative order (without numbers if need be) when not in combat and exploring a map. This way each person takes an action and nobody is wondering what we are all doing.

Thoughts?

Hello everyone. I would like to speed the game up, and address other concerns.

1. Anything that you need me to do such as change icons or add new icons for you to use within the game, should be handled before we start playing. I don't check my email that often, but if you shoot me a PM here I will check it, and add the icon days in advance. This is also a good idea in case you shoot me an email and it get sent to the junk folder or you forget to attach the icon, or you me a broken link etc.....
That way I can let you know if I have completed the requested action. You can also let me know if you wish my reply to come by email or PM if you do send me an email.

2. I am going to start watching turn time more closely. I am not going to ban summoning spells or classes, but I if you run a class that presents a variety of choices I would like for you to consider your actions in advance. If you are having issues send me a PM. The issue can be technical or gamed related.

3. I would like for everyone to check the discussion thread at least once a day. That allows for everyone to participate on discussions like these.

4. I think Skype seems to be the preferred choice. I would like for everyone to give an opinion though. It is fast enough for real time communication, and we don't have to install mumble if we use skype, nor figure out how mumble works.

5. I would like for everyone to list their roll20.net ID also. Due to the fact that I had other players that dropped out I have a list of players that shows up in my drop down menu when I want to give one of you control of an icon, who are not longer playing. Once I get everyone's roll20 ID I can eliminate the other names. Once I do that I roll20 will generate a new link for the campaign which I will post here.

6. Some of you will getting PM's today, and it is likely you will get the PM before you see this, so if you get a PM, and then see this, don't worry about it.

7. At the moment the campaign tab is broken, at least for me anyway, due to the new upgrades. Gary also said dots may be broken so "no dot" does not mean "no updates".

That is all I have for now.


My roll20.net ID is...Gauss! :D I am always Gauss wherever I go. :)

- Gauss


M Human Expert 3

My roll20 ID is Josh O.
I can set up a new Skype account easily enough, just let me know when we should test it.


I forgot to add I would like for everyone to show up at about 8:50 if possible. That way we can start at 9. I have the next area mostly setup already, and that will be done by Monday. I might even have part of book 2 started.


I my roll 20 ID is Khantin. I have set up a skype account.


m half-elven Lich 15 DM/10 Grandmaster DM

I know everyone won't be around tommorrow night, but if those that can make it will show up at game time tomorrow that can work. I have actually forgotten my Skype ID, but I will PM it to all of you later on.


Alright I should be available

- Gauss


M Human Expert 3

I might be able to make it, but I'll double check.

On a different note, it alright with everyone for Tellian to lead the goblin away for the interrogation?


Tellian wants to know if he can be allowed to interrogate the goblin alone?


Majestic said he can't make any more sessions also, but we have enough people that I won't bring anyone else in.


Male Human - Ulfen Cleric 1 of Desna

Tellian: You should not interrogate the goblin alone. The area is not secure. Which room would you do this in?

- Folkvarthr


M Human Expert 3

I was planning on using one of the storage areas we have passed.


Male Human - Ulfen Cleric 1 of Desna

Tellian: Those areas are not very large, someone could stand at the door with you or watch from down the hall.

- Folkvarthr


If anyone is around, and can get on skype send me a PM. I just need one more person to test this out.


M Human Expert 3

Tellian doesn't need much room.


Male Human - Ulfen Cleric 1 of Desna

Tellian: my point about room was where someone could stand guard.

- Folkvarthr


M Human Expert 3

Honestly, Tellian doesn't really need a guard. I have two hounds guarding me along with my innate magic. There's not much a subdued goblin could do to me and approaching goblins don't worry me.


Male Human - Ulfen Cleric 1 of Desna

Tellian: Alright, just didnt want you to be surprised.

- Folkvarthr


Male Half-Elf Summoner (Master Summoner) 1

Tellian appears, wiping blood from a blade, "It seems that the longsh... the human we are after is actually a half-elf. The goblins were here purely to kill the old man on this half-elf's orders."


Tellian from the last session you know it was Amekio's brother that invited the father there, and he is a half-elf.


M Human Expert 3

I know. I didn't want to draw any conclusions that weren't certain.


The new link to the campaign. click me


I am going to call the game tonight, but next week it is back on. The good news is that the game on the 8th is back on.

In the meantime post your login names here, and put in your vote for a voice system. I will actually get a headset if we can reach a consensus since my web cam which doubled as my mic is not cooperating.


M Human Expert 3

What happened with tonight?


M Human Expert 3

Since we aren't playing tonight, if anyone would like I can run the one shot that goes before this AP.


Male Human Paladin/20

Why are we cancelling? With Majestic bolting, I may switch back to a bard now. I spoke to Tellian and with all the melee we have, a buffing ranged bard may be better.
