GM of all he Surveys - Still sick, but in a different way

'Cos I broke it.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

Pertinent background for Igor:
He has been at the school nearly as long as he has been alive (12 years). He is often the butt of jokes (practical and otherwise) and rumors floating around the school. Most of these are started by his nemesis Talus Valerian, a large, talented martial boy with a knack for cruelty.
Igor is also painfully plain, and easy to overlook. He often uses this fact to his advantage in crowds. He is an anxious person, and must concentrate to be heard as his voice seems incapable of uttering anything above a whisper without special effort.

P.S.: So excited to get going!

Thanks for the info - consider it woven into my dark machinations.

Farash is here. He does not participate in cruelling Igor, preferring to keep his own company. He might consider squashing Talus into pulp if tempted/provoked.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

Only El Ronza (Victor) left, right?


Female Android Rogue/1

I'd also like to know if the door to the room has been locked or barred from the outside.


Male Human Tinker 1

Damn. Well, I'm here. Deepest apologies; I was unable to post due to being at my partner's house, and then... emotional distress afterwards. Here now!

Such answers are beyond mortal ken, ye ken. At least until the door handle is tried.

But...She did try the handle.

Sorry to hear that El R! Hope it sorts itself out. I'm actually an evacuee from the Mountains as the State Govt. Declared State of Emergency... Still posting by phone though...


Male Human Tinker 1

I don't have a smartphone, and the modem at my man's house kicked the bucket unexpectedly. I would have been able to post from the iPad otherwise. Then we had a fight that left me feeling beat and broken and unable to get my head in the game all of yesterday, but damn. Way to put things in perspective for me. I've been following the situation on the news, and it's scary stuff. Hope you and yours are safe.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

To be clear, I may have the attitude of an impatient child, but stuff like that takes precedence. If you have real life issues, I won't begrudge you. This is a game after all. And, in spite of what my posting might imply, I'm not a jerk. :)


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

GM question:
The power Ectoplasmic Creation says I can create up to 1 cu. ft. of material per level. Does this mean I can only create stuff in a box in front of me that contains that volume, or could I create a great sheet of plywood as long as the total volume of the material created does not exceed 1 cu. ft./lvl?

So she did. That'll teach me not to go back and double check.

The door handle will open.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

I'm pretty sure we have enough checks and aids to rip this thing from the floor even if it were bolted there, lol.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Yes, you do. I'm just waiting to see what you do with it.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

We said we were going to chuck it out the window that Azeban is trying to open? But there was a question asked.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Welp, once it's been hurled out the window we shall see how things go.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

1000 points to Farash for using a word I had to look up. I haven't had to do that in a long time. :D


Male Human Tinker 1

'Defenestrate' is one of my favourite words. :D


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

Sorry to hear about the funeral. :(

Game note: we are all running the same way, right?


Male Human Fighter (Physiomorph Marauder) 1; HP 17; AC 16; T 11, FF 15; CMB +3; CMD 14; Fort +5; Ref +1; Will -1; Init +2, Per -1; Spd 20ft.

Doesn' look like it:

Sienna is hidden, somewhere.
Azeban is running for the entrance.
Igor and Victor have left the courtyard, Farash ostensibly following and wondering just what is happening. Farash is also unarmed/unarmored.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

Heh, just like kids. Trouble = scatter!


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

...no, I think it's the natural inclination of players. It happens in all my games, for some reason. Note to self: remove free will.


Male Human Fighter (Physiomorph Marauder) 1; HP 17; AC 16; T 11, FF 15; CMB +3; CMD 14; Fort +5; Ref +1; Will -1; Init +2, Per -1; Spd 20ft.

Yep. It does seem to happen a lot. I have a feeling that the nature of PbP's means the "round the table consensus" as replaced by the Discussion tab means that a lot less collusion, agreement happens. The Discussion tabs should be firing with discussion all the time IMHO. Not that I'm particularly doing it myself...


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Apologies, my favoured children. I'll probably not be posting today - I only got three hours sleep yesterday, and none at all today. My brain is starting to go runny.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

No worries. Feel free to pass out.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Hah, what a novel thought. I have six more hours of my shift to go before I can even consider sleeping.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

I said not a word about sleeping. ;)


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

...valid point.


Male Human Tinker 1

Sorry for my silence. I had a couple of long days at work, and then there was an incident last night that the law had to get involved in. Just a short post because I'm still a bit shaken, but I'm still here.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

Real life comes first. No worries... is 'mate' gender neutral? Never realized until just now that I don't think I've ever seen (in movies because that's my only significant exposure to anything australian present company excepted) "mate" used in reference to women.


Male Human Fighter (Physiomorph Marauder) 1; HP 17; AC 16; T 11, FF 15; CMB +3; CMD 14; Fort +5; Ref +1; Will -1; Init +2, Per -1; Spd 20ft.

Yep, we use mate interchangeably.

Sounds like the City of Churches is being rough on you El.

FYI was recently voted 8th top tourist destination. Who knew!


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

noted.

Also, noted that you are Australian too. :)


Male Human Tinker 1

Yep, 'mate' is completely gender-neutral. And it's just one bastard who's cocking things up... specifically, I got home last night, and my younger sister's ex-boyfriend was waiting out the front. By the time the police arrived, he was gone - reckon he saw my car and bolted. This guy was verbally abusive to me (in my own home, no less), and physically abusive to my sister for the five months they were living together. She finally woke up to it and left him, so he walked for four hours to get to my place (where she'd moved back in), and sat on the porch, waiting. Fun times.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

Yikes. That strikes me as a little on the mentally unbalanced side.


M Pseudodragon [ HP: 29/29 | AC: 18 | T: 14 | FF: 16 | Fort +3 / Ref +7 / Will +8 | Init +2 / Percept +10+1d6 (Blindsense 60, Darkvision 60, Low-Light) ]

Huh, I learned something new about the word 'mate' today.

Victor: That's nuts. I'm super glad that she got out of there and has you to help her out, though. It's amazing how many people don't leave those types of situations.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Wow. Sounds like that guys need's Jon's Special Restraining Order. It's being tied up in basement somewhere far, far away and possibly slowly flooding. Then again, I'm considered unsubtle in such things...

Take what time you need to deal with stuff. Especially if it involves pepper spray.


Male Human Tinker 1

I know, right? Some women (and men) live in those situations for 20 years - my aunt was one of them. She lived with one abusive husband for 10 years, another abusive husband for 5... I'm so glad my sis got out of there after a few months. But even though she's out... she's only 18, for crying out loud, and her first serious relationship was this. That's my baby sister this guy was beating up! Some people are just disgusting.

Ah well, it's out of my hands. The police are handling it from here. All I can do is be here for my baby sis and make sure nothing happens, but that shouldn't keep me from posting. Just don't be surprised if I'm a little short - I find it hard to get into character when I'm stressed, and this has been a pretty stressful time for the whole family.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

Well, at least you have Airships to look forward to here. Because we are so building one. In a few months. When we're lvl 8+ or so. :)


M Pseudodragon [ HP: 29/29 | AC: 18 | T: 14 | FF: 16 | Fort +3 / Ref +7 / Will +8 | Init +2 / Percept +10+1d6 (Blindsense 60, Darkvision 60, Low-Light) ]

I approve of Igor's plan wholeheartedly.


Male Human Tinker 1

I also approve of the airships.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

GM: what is your opinion on me crafting things like barrels filled with gunpowder with the spells Ectoplasmic Creation and Modify Matter? The barrel is simple enough, but if I want to create gunpowder and other complex substances, would you allow me to do so with an appropriate craft check?


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Possibly, but the quantities would be relatively limited, and with Ectoplasmic Creation the time limit might be a hindrance.


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

True, but if I have prior intelligence, or need lots of explosives fast, a barrel of oil for something temporary, or the like, that may be the way to do it


HP: 6/6 AC 15/15/11 F:0 R:4 W:2 Percep:+3 Init:+10 Stealth:+10 Spd.: 30ft 4/6 pp

I'm not overly familiar with the tropes and tendencies of steampunk, so if I'm being a little too realistic or something, feel free to let me know.


Female Android Rogue/1

I'm assuming we've been able to retrieve our equipment now? That we didn't have any awful encounters in our rooms?

Also, how are the rooms divided? Sienna being female, is her room actually somewhere separate, or is the place co-ed?


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Be as realistic as you wish, Igor. I always feel good fantasy works best when not simply hand waived magic.

The dorm is co-ed, with alternating boy/girl floors. Rooms are typically singles, since quite a few students aren't either. And yes, you have your gear.


Male Human Tinker 1

So, I'm having a bit of trouble here.

I can't find any rules on calculating the stats for a tinker's automatons.
Anywhere.
At all.

This is a problem, as I'd dearly like to post, but I can't until I can send an automaton into combat, and I can't do that until it has a statblock...

Is it on the d20PFSRD?
