Not everyone took watches last night either.


Well the houserule makes taking a watch shift complicated.

Ruul's prayer time is during the pre-dawn hours (4-5am). So with the rule that divine casters need 8 hours of sleep, he needs to be in bed by 8pm.

Depending on how long we're doing watches, I could see doing a watch from 5am till whenever everyone else is awake.

I feel sorry for divine casters that prep spells at midnight.

Why? We have multiple characters who need practically no sleep at all. Macavity and the imp for one thing, and Ally too except she's a lazy little girl who likes to sleep even though she doesn't need to. (If she felt it was needed for her to stay awake and keep watch, she would.) Macavity has a +15 to perception, and the imp has +10. Others with rings of sustenance can take watches as well. Casters who need 8 hours, it doesn't make sense for them to take watches. I'll make sure to get Elen a ring as soon as we get some loot, then she can take a watch too.

Folks

LM did not say the 8 hours had to be consecutive. In fact, he said that it included prep/meditation time, as opposed to the bonus time in some of the RAW. We just schedule watches over 10 hours. Everyone can at least take watch for 2 hours and 8 hours of sleep/prep/meditation/whatever.

cheers

Yeah we can only walk/travel/adventure for 8 hours a day; past that causes forced March checks. The rest of the day is setting up/taking down camp, midday meal, sleep, 10 hours allocated to resting won't actilually impact our adventuring realistically.

Wow! This stone and way finder don't like each other.

Umm. LM, maybe you should pick that location.

OK it was pointed out to me what the RAW was for magic-user 'prep-time' was. In my rl game, everyone just rested for 8 hours to heal/regain spells/sleep/bathroom time etc. Most of my group cut their teeth on 1st and 2nd ed (like myself) so some of the old 'quirks' seemed to have followed us.

I know there are issues with my original ruling, but I didn't understand what the fuss was about. After looking at the RAW, now I get it. As such, I am going to allow for wizard and cleric prep-time to follow RAW instead of my old-fashioned rule.

Sorry for the mixup.

No problems at all LM and thanks for the clearing that up.

Can we have to use the pre-defined resonance mechanics or do we have to roll on the chart?

We'll assume that you experimented with this before the adventure.

When you tried the resonant power of the stone, you find yourself in a small apartment on the second floor of a building, across the street from a brothel. When you pop in, you find a rather large women, naked from the waist up, being measured by another woman for what appears to be a corset. You later find out that you are in the Keystone District in Magnimar.

On the resonant mechanics, I'm going to stick with the random roll. I like a little randomness in the universe now and again. Just don't roll a 100 like Numair did! Lousy time for that to pop up.

Since it is assumed that you broke it before the adventure started, I am going to say that you got the wayfinder fixed, but you were told that if you put that ioun stone back into the wayfinder, it will be destroyed. Any other stone should work the way it is supposed to, according to the person who fixed it for you.


Randomness it is!

Welp, where is Ruul's headed?

Again, like Macavity, we are assuming that you found this out before the adventure started.

You find yourself standing on a busy street, in front of a large building that is under construction (you get the feeling the stone shifted you a little from it's designated location). You find out that the building is meant to be a golemworks factory, in the city of Oenopion, Nex. You are initially mistaken for a golem yourself until you start talking. Then people started running and it all went downhill from there...I'll let you fill in the blanks later. :)


Oooo...

I'll come up with a something.

Hmm, a +1 resistance bonus to saves, am I right in thinking that will not stack with my cloak, LM?

Because its gives us a better chance to not be surprised while we rest as a group. If you are up, even if you fail a perception roll, at least you are awake, not prone, alert, armored, armed, etc, and can act to wake others, or defend the group. I believe everyone will be able to regain their spells while participating in a watch. If this is not correct then I will recant.

Interesting. A favored Enemy. If I am picking, for this character's background it would have to be Evil Outsiders.


LM amended his previous ruling. Only the arcane casters need their full night's worth of sleep. This means we can stick to the typical eight hour night cycle (plus or minus a couple hours) and still maintain watches.

Elen's right though. If you're resting 8 hours it's very hard for you to keep a watch. This is typical of arcane casters.

For example, if the first watch starts at 9pm and you're sleeping 8 hours, when exactly when you be keeping watch? 5am? That's not really a watch.

That's the tradeoff between arcane and divine spellcasters. Arcane preparation is more flexible. Divine requires no rest.

If a wizard is kept from sleeping he can never regain spells.

If a cleric is occupied during his prayer hour he can never regain spells.

Unless you rule that the watch can be interrupted for a... say... 2-3 hours watch. Then you can still rest the 8 hours and still make a watch.

But let's get to what is REALLY important: LM, what the HECK are those birds?! :D

@LM, where are these teleport effects coming from? I don't see that in the wayfinder page.


It's in the chart Numair linked.

And I bought the ion stone I did because I wanted the specific power from Method 1. :( I somehow had missed we were even considering method 2.

Its looking like we may get Elen's wish of a night time gargoyle attack. Just pray its not a Vargouille swarm, and put your earplugs in, just in case. :)

Ok Elen will take a watch of sorts starting at 430 unless, as I expect, her sleep is interrupted.


Yeah, I'm in the same boat. I chose Dusty Rose because I liked the resonance effect.

At least the teleport made for a story! I added a blurb in Ruul's profile about it.

Because it is a resistance bonus, they don't stack.

I've heard of a bull in a china shop, but not of one in a golem factory. :P

Ok, then can I retroactively replace my cloak of resistance with something else worth 1000gp? If so, I'll update Elen's inventory with a spyglass. ;)

LM, are you ok with my choice of evil outsider for favored enemy, or does the choice need to be random?

And why is everyone so quite tonight? I just finished running a home game and expected to come back to 20+ posts to catch up on.


I think we were expecting something to happen during the watch.

Well, Lavinia and Ruul are having a scene over PMs to spare the rest of you. :P

No one woke the mage.

How would we find the mage to wake him? Aren't you hiding in a rope trick? :)


M Imp Familiar 6 hd

But the Imp is handy and has been "taking" to Mac. Imbukar was on watch, but I am not sure he ever saw the flyers. I did post a question asking if Imbukar might have overheard the general discussion of the creatures, but never saw a response. His only knowledge skill is Planes.

Its doubtful he would have woken the wizard if there was no immediate threat, unless someone suggested it.

Lavinia ought to be able to tell you that, she got a really good knowledge roll. However, everyone who would be using weapons to fight has magical weapons or smiting capabilities.


Male Drow Noble Accountant 12/Monk 10

Sorry for the problems earlier, it's one of those glitchy kind of a days here. I am getting us back on track as we speak.
