Agreed. If she's gone, we will need to find a replacement.

If anyone has a dear friend they'd like to recommend, please let us know. (Post here before inviting them, so we don't accidentally invite someone that one of our players might've had a bad run-in with in the past.)

Also, I will be traveling a lot for the holidays, and posting will be sporadic until after the new year.

Also also, don't forget to update your stat bars after resting, with your various abilities, spells, HP, etc.

I've got a friend who might be interested.

I can't believe anyone has had a bad experience with him, as he is only now playing in his first PBP, a Starfinder game.

He plays an excellent wizard in our home games, unless you have a pet, in which case it might get nuked!


Campaign maps: Jade Regent | Kingmaker

...but you have an entire party of pets!

I know, I AM a pet! I'm scared!!


Campaign maps: Jade Regent | Kingmaker

I'm fine with inviting your newish-to-PbP friend. :)

BUT! Let's wait until after the New Year and see if Kyrie returns after the vacation days.

Sounds good.

Or have two wizards and a sorcerer. :P One can never have too many wizards; they are squishy so you need like a 6 pack!

At that point, we could actually make use of a Magician Bard. A buddy of mine plays one in PFS, and it's a hoot when the warriors realize the Bard won't be buffing their attacks.

Ok, and with that last email having been sent, my Christmas/New Year Holiday begins!

There will be family, and friends, and out of state travel, so I will do my best to post, but at least during the Monday-Friday of next week, it might get a bit tough.

GM, feel free to bot me as necessary.

Happy Christmas to all!

Everyone survive the new year?

Yup.

Still here. Are we in the area on the Roll 20 map or in the main temple area?

NOTE: Got an all-day snowstorm tomorrow (apx. a foot of snow), so I'll be offline 'til Friday.

You in the SE? How crazy that Florida has snow!

I think that where we are in Virginia is just far enough north and inland to avoid this particular storm, but the temperatures we've been having are nuts! When I got in my truck this morning it was 1 degree! Degrees should always be measured in plurals!

NE, actually (near Boston). In addition to the foot of snow, we're supposed to have winds of 35-50 mph...chance for an official blizzard! Everyone's hoping the power doesn't go out, because after the storm we're getting an arctic blast, and the High/Low temperature forecast is:

Friday: 11/-4
Saturday: 5/-10.

Made a Fezzik-sized pot o' chili last night in preparation for the coming storm.

Chili - yum!

I think we're nearing the end of our cold spell here near Chicago. Hasn't been terribly windy or snowy so that has helped. We've had lows of -10 to -15 and some days never got above 0. Been colder here than in Fairbanks, Alaska

It's been colder HERE in Virginia than in Fairbanks. Apparently Fairbanks is having a mild winter.

Do we want me to see about recruiting my wizard buddy?


Campaign maps: Jade Regent | Kingmaker

I have returned!

Since it looks like Kyrie is gone, let's bring in the new wizard!

I would like to rewind slightly so that you can pick up the wizard (or sorcerer or w/e) in Nulb. Connection could be just about anything - just came downriver, was sent by Verbobonc, friend of Elmo's or Burne's, all depends on what campaign trait (s)he takes.

Lantern Lodge

Hello all. I am the “new recruit”. Pleasure to make your acquaintance. What type of character does the group need and what are your creation rules/guidance?


Male Mighty and Scary White Dragon UnRogue 1 (AC: 18 [T: 16 FF: 14] | HP: 29/29 (0NL) | SR 13 F+5, R+8, W+6 | Init: +3 | Perc: +8 | 60' Darkvision

Welcome!

Check the early posts in the Recruitment tab to see the rules we used to create our initial characters. I daresay those are still relevant. Not sure about needing a campaign trait at this point, but the GM would know better the answer.

We lost our Wizardess! I think we need someone to cover down on those responsibilities. Could be Sorcerer, or possibly a Bard, who knows.

Here is a link to the character creation doc the GM posted when we got started.

Welcome aboard, Galdrock!

New laptop more or less updated with what I need, so I'm hopeful of getting back into the posting groove at last!


Campaign maps: Jade Regent | Kingmaker

You should choose a Campaign trait, as this will inform how you got involved in the business of fighting the Temple of Elemental Evil.

Our group needs a principal arcanist. Zinnath has some sorcery ability but is built more toward an arcane trickster.

Item crafting feats are allowed, if you wish to go down that route.

You don't have to be a wizard, necessary; a sorcerer or other caster could fit in. We just need to make sure we have magical power that can handle problem-solving as the adventure proceeds.

You will start at 3rd level and presumably you have had a few adventures of your own before joining the group. Starting wealth is 3,000 gp.

DM--(Galdrock character)

Ready for inspection. :) Level 3 Arcanist reporting for duty.


Male Mighty and Scary White Dragon UnRogue 1 (AC: 18 [T: 16 FF: 14] | HP: 29/29 (0NL) | SR 13 F+5, R+8, W+6 | Init: +3 | Perc: +8 | 60' Darkvision

I don’t think Pearls of Power work for Arcanists. Don’t you need Runestones


Male Half-Orc Arcanist 3 (AC: 16 [T: 12 FF: 14]) | HP: 23/23 | F+4, R+4, W+4 | Init: +3 | Perc: +3 | 60’ Darkvision

admittedly this will be my first Arcanist but the runestones are for those that don't prepare spells like sorcerers. My understanding of Arcanist are that we have to prepare our spells like wizards. so the pearls would only give me access to the spells prepared. (I have a spell book that has more spells than the prepared listed.)


Male Mighty and Scary White Dragon UnRogue 1 (AC: 18 [T: 16 FF: 14] | HP: 29/29 (0NL) | SR 13 F+5, R+8, W+6 | Init: +3 | Perc: +8 | 60' Darkvision

But once prepared, you cast spontaneously.

The Rules Forum seems split on this, to be sure.

When using Metamagic, you’re like a Sorcerer, that much is clear. There should be a FAQ on this, but there isn’t.

GM’s call I guess.

Silver Crusade

Pearls don't work for arcanists.

You don't actually prepare individual spells, and you never expend the a prepared spell so the pearls don't do much. Arcansists cast as a spontaneous caster from their daily spell list. The daily spell list is what they "prepare".

Think of the arcanist as a sorcerer, but with a malleable daily spell list.

Runestones are the pearls for arcanists. Especially sucks in that they are twice as expensive.

But yeah GM's call...


Campaign maps: Jade Regent | Kingmaker

The hair-splitting is that while you prepare spells, you do not expend prepared spells. After you cast a prepared spell, you still have it prepared. So, you would need to use something that restores a spell slot.

About to go into a play, will check in and update late tonite.

very well then 2 for 1 sale it is. :) 2 pearls ==> 1 runestone.


Campaign maps: Jade Regent | Kingmaker

Other than that I don't see any obvious issues. The low Charisma is a slight issue for an arcanist, but that's your choice. Since you and Zinnath are both apprentices to Burne, presumably you were off doing some other adventuresome stuff when Zinnath was brought in to investigate the rumors that led to the moathouse and the temple, and you recently came back to Hommlet, got the scoop on things from your mentor, and were sent to meet up with the team.


Campaign maps: Jade Regent | Kingmaker

@Tronar, did you have a preferred way to enter? Letter from Burne? Sent to "Check up" on the little dragon? Drunken chance encounter at the Waterside Hostel?


Male Half-Orc Arcanist 3 (AC: 16 [T: 12 FF: 14]) | HP: 23/23 | F+4, R+4, W+4 | Init: +3 | Perc: +3 | 60’ Darkvision

Oh I figure that little "ferocious" dragon always needs checking up on. It tended to get itself into all kinds of messes back at Hommlet. :)

After reading Kyrie's farewell speech, it dawned on me that she was our crafter. Do any of the spell casters want to work that into their build or do we just want to pay an NPC to do it?


Male Half-Orc Arcanist 3 (AC: 16 [T: 12 FF: 14]) | HP: 23/23 | F+4, R+4, W+4 | Init: +3 | Perc: +3 | 60’ Darkvision

Hmmm. I've built a blaster based on what I thought was needed. I'm not above paying an NPC to do it given there is enough sellable party loot.


Campaign maps: Jade Regent | Kingmaker

As to your strategy over in gameplay, remember what happened last time you had Fezzik in a choke point and he got paralyzed.


Male Mighty and Scary White Dragon UnRogue 1 (AC: 18 [T: 16 FF: 14] | HP: 29/29 (0NL) | SR 13 F+5, R+8, W+6 | Init: +3 | Perc: +8 | 60' Darkvision

Yep! Instant wall!

It’s been 2 days? What’s the plan for going through this door?


Campaign maps: Jade Regent | Kingmaker

You tell me if you want Fezzik in front of not. I had to travel AGAIN this weekend and the six-hour drive bites into my productivity.

I say SK and then Fez, since Fez has reach.

Let me know if I need to cast magic missile at the darkness. :)

FINALLY done with traveling for a few weeks.

Are we waiting on something?

Was sick yesterday, still at work today.
