This is our repository for lengthy OOC questions, statements, and discussions. Feel free to post short things in the gameplay thread, but if you know that you are going to be AFK for more than a day or so, please let us know here.

I already know that I'll be AFK on March 21st and 22nd, 2015, but as it's a weekend, I'm guessing that most of us won't mind.

Hello, I'm Harsk Grunyarson, I'll be your healer and the resident rockbreaker.

I challenge you to a rock-breaking contest, Harsk!

Harsk, do you think you'll need an aid to heal the party? I've chosen Linge's spells to make her more of a battle-oriented druid, but I can still change, and lern cure spells instead.

What would be best for the party?

Thanks for choosing Linge! I'll do my best! :)

Greetings, I am Miss Calynse! It's a pleasure to meet you all.

This is TheChelaxian checking in! Thanks for the invite, I'm honored to have been chosen.


Curse of Strahd

Here, will work on a profile and crunch, I think we should discuss character roles here before we start.

Ex: We have a bard, a cleric a druid and a hunter...lots of healing available.

Asta seems to be our hammer.

Do we have anyone focused on ranged combat?

Kristoph will be built around whatever deficiencies we have as a party.


Torval is an Alchemist, so he'll be tossing some bombs into the mix, plus crossbow support.

This AP can be a bit of a grindhouse at times. Here's hoping that you make it. :)

Ah yes, greetings. I am Torval Brasmi, a studied naturalist and student of alchemy, if I could only procure some more magical ingredients in this town I might brew us some helpful potions.

Edit: Damn ninja'd twice over :)

Technically, well literally, Torval only has a sling as of now rather than the crossbow. That gold ended up being used to purchase a few other starting items instead. He will be mostly spending feats building up his ranged combat abilities, that is supposing he lives that long at any rate ;)


If you haven't already, underneath your PCs forum name, please include the following, filling in the appropriate information.

SEX RACE CLASS/1 | HP #/# | AC:## | T:## | FF:## | CMB: ## | CMD: ## | Fort: +# | Ref: +# | Will: +# | Init: +## | Perc: +# | Speed ##'

Please also visit this Campaign Ledger, and consider linking the following url in place of the "* " in the information above:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Ri3gFb5Oz2F7NiDNZ4LrSNqM3pGPmjSY_hZ mDobXFfw/edit?usp=sharing

That way, your character always has an easy link to the campaign ledger available. I'll also put it in the Campaign Information, but this will save you having to scroll to the top when you're looking at the 42nd post on the page.

This ledger will help us keep track of many things - please fill in the necessary information for your PC on each tab (combat tracker, gear, coinpurse, etc.) and keep things updated with me as we go.

Thanks!

Since Linge isn't much of a fighter, I guess she'll focus more on ranged combat... But, like Torval, she only has a sling.

About healing the group, she could scribe some "Cure Light Wounds" scrolls. It could be useful.

My apologies, but because of the time difference, I'll fill in the informations tomorrow... :(

Pretty much the same sort of situation here, your updates came through right around the time I was leaving for work. I'll look at having the requested information updated after I get home later this evening.


No rush, all. We've nothing but the time given to us.


Curse of Strahd

I just noticed that we have 6 PC's AND 2 animal companions...

Things might get crowded fairly quickly...

@ Harsk What feats do you have? And how do you have 6 channels/day? A cleric may channel energy a number of times per day equal to 3 + her Charisma modifier. your modifier is -1...

@ Calnyse Longswords cannot be finessed With a light weapon, rapier, whip, or spiked chain made for a creature of your size category, you may use your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier on attack rolls. If you carry a shield, its armor check penalty applies to your attack rolls. I'd use a Rapier instead.

I'll get Kristophe's sheet made sometime today.

@ GM Niles: Oops, my bad, fixing. Thanks!


Thanks, GM Niles - I haven't had a chance to go through the sheets in tremendous detail.

As you say, we will get crowded, and so I encourage you to all check out Painlord's PBP guide.

In particular, we'll need to focus on the first of his main points - Always Be Pushing. To that end, if you feel like your character is a leader-type who might be prone to yell, "Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; Or close the wall up with our [mixed-race] dead!" - THEY SHOULD!

Mostly, if I see someone trying to advance the plot, I will keep things moving. If you are finding that my style is not letting enough RP happen for your liking, please let me know ("hey, dummy, how about..." always works), and I'll slow down a bit. As much as this AP can be a railroad, it doesn't have to be a speed run to the end.

HOpe that helps!

Thanks!

Realizing that the "* " wasn't obvious in earlier post. Trying to make it so here.

@Harsk - Could you help me see where you get a +1 to Kn(Planes and Religion)? Maybe I'm just missing it.

@Astra, please populate your Alias with the character sheet you created earlier in the recruitment thread.

Looking over more thugs now. Thanks!

Arrrrgh, Everything else I do is focused on the /WISDOM/ stat except for channel energy, By Torag's Beard!

EDIT

The +1 was a leftover from one of my traits from a previous campaign Gone now

Thanks for choosing Linge! I'll do my best! :)

I have 6 1d4+1 healing touches

I have 2 1d6 bursts
I have 3 spells that can be converted into healing or used normally...

So... well, it really depends on circumstances...

But, while this game is a meatgrinder, don't feel that you /need/ to take up healing.


Curse of Strahd

What healing touches are you talking about?


The nice thing about lots of healing is not feeling like you have to abide to the 15-minute workday, but I agree - between a cleric, bard, druid, hunter, and potion-brewin' alchemist, y'all should be able to just wake up one day and walk straight through the AP.

*Facepalm* Sorry, I was looking at the healing domain not that long ago... My mistake, again... I have no healing touches, I can boost resistances...


Also, y'all can feel free to dot the gameplay thread by making me a Knowledge(Local) roll. That way, we can help you get that into your campaigns for easy reference.

We seem to be having an inauspicious start with our dice rolls for the campaign, hopefully our luck picks up later :)

Don't you see? We spend the bad rolls now, so we are more likely to roll higher during an encounter or something important!


I have added a map of Heldren to the top of the page. I'll be adding a map of the surrounding region soon.


Fate Chips 1 Wounds 1 (Injury -1 Vigor die)

@Harsk and everyone I hope you guys don't think I'm being intentionally rude in my conversations. I'm trying to play Kristophe as a naive young man who was raised mostly by gnomes... so he has their penchant for talking too much and saying things he shouldn't.


Female Elf Bard/1 | HP 8/8 | AC: 15 | T: 12 | FF: 13 | CMB: 0 | CMD: 12 | Fort: 0 | Ref: +4 | Will: +3 | Init: +2 | Perc: +3 | Speed: 30ft

@ Kristophe: I didn't think your character as rude, if that is any relief, the naivety was plain to me.

@ DM and Party: Sorry for the late reply, RL got busy for a spell.


Female Human (Ulfen), NG Arctic Druid (2), HP 12/15, AC 15/ T 13/ FF 12/ CMB:+1/ CMD: 14/ Fort: +4/ Ref: +2/ Will: +7/ Ini +2 (+3 AN)/ Perception +9 (10 AN)/ Speed 30 feet/ Spells 1st 1/3/ Active conditions: none

Is it my post which troubles you? :O I'm sorry if that's the case!

As a player, I know it's not intentional at all, because I already know about Kristophe's past and personality...
I'm just playing a character who doesn't know that yet, because she had just met him... She doesn't hold any grudge toward him though: she is just a little troubled, because she doesn't quite understand him yet, that's all. But she'll fully understand when she'll know him better, without any doubt!

Keep having fun with Kristophe. He's an awesome character, and you're doing a great job at interpreting him!


Hi all - I have to go out of town for work today through Sunday unexpectedly. I will try to post if possible. Feel free to RP it up.


Hi, all - Calynse has had to withdraw due to RL concerns. We'll carry on with the five of you plus your two companions.

Understood, thank you for the update.

also, please... someone pick up the phone...


Male Half-Orc Alchemist (Beastmorph) 1 | HP 8/8 | AC:15 | T:12 | FF:13 | CMB: +1 | CMD: 13 | Fort: +3 | Ref: +5 | Will: +2 | Init: +2 | Perc: +5 | Speed 30 feet

That's unfortunate, but we shall soldier on!

Also, why oh why did Torval not buy a simple dagger at some point? Without one he currently has damage choices of bludgeoning, piercing or *drumroll* high collateral damage-ing. Oh to be level 2 and have Precise Bombs.


Oh no!


Male Dwarven Cleric/1 | HP 11/11 | AC:18 | T:11 | FF:17 | CMB: +1 | CMD:+12| Fort: +6| Ref: +2| Will: +6 | Init: +1 | Perc: +3 | Speed 20' Dwarf Cleric of Torag 1

I should quit being an adventurer... take up something more to my level of talent.

Like a brewer... at least then I can have an excuse for missing absolutely everything.


:)


Grushdeva du kalt misht

Sorry to be the annoyance, but Harsk has very strong opinions about ownership and theft from the dead....


Male Half-Orc Alchemist (Beastmorph) 1 | HP 8/8 | AC:15 | T:12 | FF:13 | CMB: +1 | CMD: 13 | Fort: +3 | Ref: +5 | Will: +2 | Init: +2 | Perc: +5 | Speed 30 feet

Then you picked the wrong line of work to get into son ;)


Grushdeva du kalt misht

if they attack us, their possessions are fair game, but just taking from the dead... that is wrong


Male Half-Orc Alchemist (Beastmorph) 1 | HP 8/8 | AC:15 | T:12 | FF:13 | CMB: +1 | CMD: 13 | Fort: +3 | Ref: +5 | Will: +2 | Init: +2 | Perc: +5 | Speed 30 feet

No worries in fact it's reassuring, and interesting to roleplay out in this and future scenes, to have a character with such a defined moral core being a part of our party. Plus it's been helping me shape out in my mind about how Torval would act/think of such situations.


Female Ulfen Barbarian (breaker) 1 | HP 10/15 | AC: 15 | T: 12 | FF: 13 | CMB: +5 | CMD: 16| Fort: +5| Ref: +1 | Will: +1 | Init: +1 | Perc: +1 | Speed 30'

It's not annoying. It's a good opportunity to role-play out something that many adventurers don't think about. It can also set Asta and Harsk as having differing opinions that will flare up from time to time.

Nothing wrong with that. :)


Hi, all, a quick note:

Please take a minute this weekend to make sure that your stat blocks include all your crunch, background, and a full list of your gear.

Asta, I've been referring back to your recruitment thread post for more info, but this will get old for me before long. :)

Especially make sure that your gear list is posted, then put a message here that says, "All my gear is accounted for!" or something. AKA: Do you have a cold-weather outfit or did you just run off into the snow?

Thanks!


Fate Chips 1 Wounds 1 (Injury -1 Vigor die)

Kristophe is updated. I only added that he is carrying a Ranger's Kit. He doesn't have cold weather gear...mostly because no one told him to get any. However, Kristophe has cold resistance 2, which I'm not sure if that affects nonlethal cold damage...

But he has a decent Fort save and Survival skill to give him more bonuses vs cold...


Male Dwarven Cleric/1 | HP 11/11 | AC:18 | T:11 | FF:17 | CMB: +1 | CMD:+12| Fort: +6| Ref: +2| Will: +6 | Init: +1 | Perc: +3 | Speed 20' Dwarf Cleric of Torag 1

Harsk is also resistant to cold, from his trait, but he has no real cold weather gear. simply because he doesn't notice the cold very much

Gah! I'll get on it right away.

Everything is updated and accounted for.


Right! That would be a helpful clarification for me to make early.

If you can resist lethal damage from cold, you are immune to non-lethal damage from cold that occurs over time. You are still susceptible to instantaneous non-lethal cold damage, though your resistance will be subtracted from the total non-lethal damage dealt in this case.

Cold-weather outfits cause you to treat cold weather conditions as one step less severe.
Cold Weather > Normal
Severe Cold Weather > Cold Weather
Extreme Cold Weahter > Severe Cold Weather

I will treat animal companions/familiars as wearing cold-weather outfits for the purpose of surviving in cold temperatures.

Thanks, Asta!

Linge has no cold weather outfits... And I doubt that she can offer one now ^^"
She has Cold resistance 2 though.

Torval's gear is available in the alias statblock - also he does have a set of cold-weather clothing.

Hi!

Just to let you know that I'll be travelling for a few days from tomorrow until next week, and my computer needs to be fixed. So I won't be able to post anything until Friday or Saturday.

Feel free to bot me, GM! Sorry for the inconvenience!
