Curse of the Crimson Throne

Game Master Something Wicked

Oftentimes, to win us to our harm, the instruments of darkness tell us truths, win us with honest trifles, to betray's in deepest consequence.

I’m currently away for a few days. I’ll try to look at the map when I have a moment but Li has no preference for where we go next

Busy day(s) at work, hopefully will get a post up tomorrow.

I'm still here, it's just been a really busy workweek. I'll try to get a post up this weekend!

How does one go about disbelieving an illusion?

...Never mind. I've an idle mind. Before you pull the lever, let me prepare. I've a little trick in mind. Bluff: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (19) + 11 = 30 Kynes turns away, and opens his pack. He searches for a moment, then pulls out a mask of the mantis, and donned the frightful device. Ah yes. Just in case there are some invisible nastiness after you pull that lever, you know? Kynes mutters the command word for see invisible, and then, for deathwatch.

Retracting this. I thought maybe deathwatch could tell if an illusion of something living is not living. But the internets say i am wrong.

@Talftyn I like the Ultimate Intrigue rules on illusions.

Basically, a will save.

Just so I know what the characters are referring to and how to phrase Vencarlo's response:

Li, you're testing to see if he knows about "Fran" and Vesper?

Garvid, you're bluffing about having a duel with Vencarlo to test him?


Female Human Unchained Rogue/9 HP 85/85; AC 21 T 15 FF16; Fort+5 Ref+12/14 Will+5; Init+5; Perception+15/18, Sense Motive +15

Yes for Li. She also wants to check on his fingers - whether gloved or not - that moved oddly when she met him as well.

@GM - Kind of. Garvid's implying he was studying in the academy at the same time as the two more famous students, Grau Soldado and Sabina Merrin under Vencarlo.

In other news, I finally moved out of the shoebox I was living in to a new room in a house! I have a wardrobe now! And a real bed! And it's 5 minutes to work!

Hey everyone! I've perhaps unwisely decided to run the classic 36 page module Carrion Hill, and have opened up a recruiting thread here. Anyone from this game would get preferential odds of making the cut, so if you feel like jumping in, please make a submission!


Lamplighter 10 | HP:66/73 curr AC 21, AC:15 T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Sooo tempting, but had to turn down another game offer as well. Just in a bad spot at the moment, career wise.


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

Same :(. I love the theme and would like to play the module, but I don't have enough time right now to put in the proper effort. I'll definitely follow along though!

I just love Avidexu's artwork. This fight is also the basis for this classic scene that serves as Book 3's original cover!.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:66/73 curr AC 21, AC:15 T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Has it been 10 minutes since the last fight? I want to know if I am still in the monstrous physique.

I am still under some other buffs I think:
Buffs:Barkskin (90 minutes +4 Alchemical Natural Armor Bonus), Mutagen (90 minutes, +4 Str -2 Int, +2 Untyped Natural Armor Bonus)

AC21


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

Yes it took some time to navigate the labyrinth.

One day I am going to try to run a game. Sounds fun. Part of me would want to write my own adventure though.

Would be delighted to! I'll ponder a bit regarding the theme, but I could absolutely go for some Lovecraftian vibes.

Kynes, can you confirm the DC For your blistering invective?


Lamplighter 10 | HP:66/73 curr AC 21, AC:15 T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

10+
6Int
-2Int from Mutagen ( I think it applies)
+2nd level spell
=16?


Lamplighter 10 | HP:66/73 curr AC 21, AC:15 T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

sorry, meant to add the dc, but was late for a meeting when I was posting.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:66/73 curr AC 21, AC:15 T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Curious. Were the two snakes subject to intimidate/demoralize?


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

I forgot to roll for them! I also had the DC for your invective too high. As a result, I deleted the post. I'll adjust it and repost it shortly.

Edit: Avidexu is also more than 30' from you--outside the range of blistering invective. Looks like you can only target the snakes unless you move forward.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:66/73 curr AC 21, AC:15 T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

OK. Ah I was lazy and should have checked the distance. Kynes moves forward (see roll20).


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

It still works out very well for you guys. The enemy has rolled very poorly. That was a very effective opening salvo. This fight might not take very long at all!


Lamplighter 10 | HP:66/73 curr AC 21, AC:15 T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Hey Talfryn
What's the best (for you) way for me to get Death March this Christmas?


Male Human HP 83/83 | AC 18/ FF 12/ T 16 | Per +6 | F: 8/ R: 7/ W: 10 | Init +5 | Active Conditions: Mage Armor, Invisibility, Overland Flight, Bless, P.F.E

Hey buddy - cheers! I'd be happy to send you a free ebook, or you could grab a copy from Amazon. Thanks for giving the book a shot ;)


Lamplighter 10 | HP:66/73 curr AC 21, AC:15 T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Cool. Personally, I like physical copy.


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

I have it at home. It's a really entertaining read!

Also note that Yazi's hunter's blessing will apply against Avidexu but not the cobras. Also, they have reach so be prepared for an AoO if you have to step closer than 10' from them.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:66/73 curr AC 21, AC:15 T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

I keep forgetting to use my Hurtful Feat, which I could have used against one of the snakes.
Hurtful When you successfully demoralize an opponent within your melee reach with an Intimidate check, you can make a single melee attack against that creature as a swift action. If your attack fails to damage the target, its shaken condition from being demoralized immediately ends.


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

I think when you demoralized you were out of melee range? Even with reach, they had to move forward to attack you.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:66/73 curr AC 21, AC:15 T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Ah ok. More of a reminder to myself.

And Garvid on a Crit is scary. +87. My gosh.


Barbarian 9/Fighter 1 | HP 101/101 | DR 4/- | AC 22, T 11 FF 21 | Fort +12, Ref +6, Will +5 (+6 Superstition) | CMD 28 | Init +2 | Perception +14

Hey, Kynes' attacks are pretty scary themselves, investigators are an amazing class.

Question at GM, as that just came to mind. Would I be able to use Spell Sunder against ongoing negative effects on my allies, like say the symbol of pain? The FAQs seem to support that idea, and the guy that wrote it mentions that being part of the way he intended it. I'll link the posts where that's discussed tonight, but I'm just double checking with you if you think that's ok.

Being so angry that you break curses and enemy spells does sound like a Garvid thing to do, and it's a cool and thematic rage power, IMO.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:66/73 curr AC 21, AC:15 T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Yeah the investigator class is pretty strong and flexible.

Garvid is a great character btw. One could write a whole novel around him.


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

@Li the effect lasts one hour from exposure.

@Garvid RAW your proposal seems to be allowed. You can link the discussion posts for the RAI but I'm inclined to agree with you purely on the ability description.

I absolutely agree!

Awesome Talfryn.
I was wondering if this would work. For this spell, the transported creature must be willing. Since she is at -8 hp and unconscious, I wondered (for the purposes of this spell!, not generally), can she be considered willing?
The answer appears to be yes.

Unconscious Target

Phew!


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

@Kynes you don't take the Con damage this turn, but you need to continue saving until you get two consecutive saves. The poison lasts 6 rounds and you've rolled 3 times, so at most you'll need to roll 3 more times. It doesn't matter for the roll you made, but remember that Con damage impacts your Fort save.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:66/73 curr AC 21, AC:15 T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Oops forgot about that!


Work? I'm already in the holiday mood!


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

Sorry guys. It's US thanksgiving this week and I'm caught in pre-holiday work rush. I also have a house guest and am planning a party on Friday. You might not hear from me for a few days, but when things calm down a bit I'll get back to posting.

Even if it's not Thanksgiving where you are, know that I'm very thankful to have you all as PbPers :).

The Turkey gave me PbP dreams.
Wicked invited a new player named Bert who chose to play a grizzly bear.
Officially my first PbP dream.

Seems legit.

Speaking of Carrion things, does anyone have (or knows of) a Carrion Crown game that could use another PC? My dhampir monk is recently orphaned following the demise of her game due to the GM stepping down, and I would really like to continue playing both the character and the campaign.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:66/73 curr AC 21, AC:15 T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Yaz, I have been playing in a Carrion Crown game for a.long while. Actually, Wicked is playing in that game too. If you are interested, ill dm the gm about adding you.

Thanks, I was actually in with a different character for the second table of that game, which fizzled out due to lack of interest from the other players. GM Nayr did invite me to the other game after that happened, but I had just gotten into the first CC game I mentioned, so I declined the invitation.
