Hello!

Liberty's Edge

Conundrum is 4th already. Nice!

Is Blayne the character you were hoping to bring? If we're playing low I've got either a paladin 2 or arcanist 3. I believe Peter said he had a 2nd level gunslinger.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

I believe Conundrum is his renaming of the 4th-level pregen investigator. Blayne is actually 2nd level, the alias needs to be leveled up, but that's the character he's planning to bring.

Hi all!

I can bring a sturdy level 4 skald or one of several lower level characters:

Cleric of Sarenrae (3)
Bard? Kinda? (3)
Instrument of Aroden (2)
Warpriest of Abadar (1)

Any preferences for tier?

Grand Lodge

Gunslinger 7 HP: 60/60 AC: 23 FF: 16, Touch: 16 Init:+6 F:+10 R:+11, W:+7 Perception+13 Sense Motive+13 (effects)

I think we're low tier. The bard or the Instrument would fit well as far as roles go.

Liberty's Edge

So far we're 2, 2, and 3. I think no matter what you bring we're going to be doing tier 1-2.

Yeah, Blayne is only level 2 and conundrum is the pregen. Is the l2 ok with Everyone?

Silver Crusade

half orc fighter/paladin 8

Being level 2 isn't a problem. We'd have to do some serious character juggling to get our average level high enough to play high tier.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Feral, you going to get a profile for that awesomely named alias?

Also, we may have another player, Chris Marsh (AKA Dungeon Master S).

Another thought - it's a 3-scenario arc, so if we play mid-range now, we could end up high-tier by the end.

Silver Crusade

half orc fighter/paladin 8

Profile should be good to go now.

Adding a 5th player changes things. If he brings at least a 2 and Trex switches to his skald we can play high.


MAP TEMPLATES | Giantslayer | Fall of Plaguestone | Skull & Shackles |

Hey guys, thanks or the invite. Time for me to spend some time on the player side. I've got a couple of options, and I'm open to whatever:

Torriki: Unchained rogue until Vigilante becomes legal again. At level 1 1/3, he's quite the newbie.

Nemis: Level 3 0/3 Psychic.

Torriki is likely the better faction piece, but Nemis helps push towards higher tier later.

I'll play the slot least covered.

And again, I'm happy to be on board.

Silver Crusade

half orc fighter/paladin 8

Unfortunately we're in the all too common position of being either a very powerful low tier table or a minimally qualifying high tier table.

Personally I prefer the latter. Trex do you mind switching to your skald?


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Hey Chris, glad you could join us!

Take your time sorting out tier - I have read that at least the first of this series can be a cakewalk at low tier, though I haven't read enough of the scenario to have a solid sense of that.

DMS - you've run this, do you have an opinion on that?


MAP TEMPLATES | Giantslayer | Fall of Plaguestone | Skull & Shackles |

Hey there!

I have run this. I have seen it be tough and a cake walk (I ran it when it first came out, and my memory is a bit fuzzy.) That being said, low tier is more survivable, but I've never shirked from a challenge.

I prefer my Exchange, which is level 1 and will keep us low.

Silver Crusade

half orc fighter/paladin 8

Arighty. We'll stick with the original plan then.

That makes us 1, 2, 2, 2, 3. Average 2.

Dungeon Master S here.

I'll go with my Exchange Rogue. He's level 1, so we won't be overpowered at the low tier.

I'll have my profile up to date tomorrow afternoon, ready to start ASAP.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Okay, low tier it is, with no 4-player adjustment. That should make it slightly less cakey. Starting post up in a bit!

Very exciting! I'll have Blayne's profile updated by tomorrow. Looking forward to adventuring with you all.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

And we're off! Thanks for assembling so quickly, gang!


| DM | Absalom Initiation

I'll be taking a ski day tomorrow, so no posting. Will try to get in another post today, then catch up Monday night or Tuesday.

Hey guys, I'm going to be gone from Friday afternoon to late Sunday. I'll be on a snowshoeing hiking trip in Northern Vermont, where my connectivity is spotty at best. I'm guessing I won't be posting until I get back.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Thanks for the heads up, and have fun!

Instrument - I have no problem with a retcon, if you would have stopped Torriki from using the potion and done the healing yourself. If we were at a table, you would have been able to say something, so we can presume you did here too.

Thanks. Sorry for not asking first :)

@ Torriki: Instrument giving orders is RP, not me barking at you. Torriki could definitely overpower Instrument if he wanted to, ha.

Didn't think it was. Torriki is young and naive. Easy to push around... for now.

Instrument is closer to middle-aged and still naive. So you've got him beat there.

No problem at all, asking for permission for such reasonable stuff just bogs down a PbP.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Gang - as you've probably guessed, we're not too far from the end of this scenario. There are two things I'd like to ask for. First, please provide me with your info for the chronicle sheet, as the Instrument already did:

PFS#
Faction
Day Job

Second, I'd appreciate any feedback you've got. I feel like I ran this game very fast, which was fun for me but may have felt rushed to others. How was the pacing for everyone? Any other feedback you've got would be appreciated as well, whether on the scenario, my approach, etc.

I'm enjoying this group a lot, looking forward to 2 more scenarios with y'all.

Silver Crusade

Thanks for DMing Khel. Part one was fun. I'm looking forward to two and three.

The pacing was fine. Even with a few delays I never felt like we were lagging.

I have had a great time. While obviously it's the same game, the PbP environment is different. A great GM knows when to fast forward and when to slow down, I think you did a great job. I have fostered a reputation for being a very fast GM with a high rate of posting, and the speed works totally fine with me. Good stuff, looking for more.

This IS my day job.
Looking to build a relationship with the mining company for the Exchange.

A DM Khel game is always a good game. I have trouble posting outside 8pm-11pm Central time so it's often only once/day, but the pace has been good with me.

+1 to that.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Very glad to hear it, I've enjoyed it a lot as well. Though I find seeing a bunch of posts that I've missed is stressful, as pathetic as that is, so I check frequently, even if I don't have time to post.

Anyway - I assume no one is slow track?

Lol, it's been nine rolls since somebody rolled above a 9 on a d20.

Tell me about it.

Not sure who it'll go for next, but Torriki will fall if it's him. Hopefully we get a hit in soon. I can't imagine he's got more at 1-2.

Right you were, he was at 1 hp when he made his escape.

And yes, that was some quality rolling.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Chronicles are here.

Let me know if there are any issues with them. Torriki, please cross off the Deeptreasure Edge boon on your chronicle, as you made the other deal.

A couple of things to let y’all know:

As you may have guessed, there’s a mechanic in this scenario where delays count against you. More specifically, miners start to die in the various situations you find them in, and it quickly becomes very difficult to save enough of them to get the second prestige point. So, for all that the hustle and bustle (and being fatigued) might have been a pain, you rescued the maximum possible number of miners, which is a fine thing in and of itself, but also made sure you got both prestige points.

On a non-scenario note, I’ve got family coming into town on Wednesday, who will be here a week. I’ll try to check in, but my posting rate will likely drop a good bit from 3/16 to 3/23.

Duly noted on all accounts. I'll be here when ready. Thank you !
