Let the OOC Discussion of Expedition to the Ruins of Castle Greyhawk begin! And welcome, to my players from the d20 World of Greyhawk board. I hope that this new environment invigorates the campaign!


All of my d20 World of Greyhawk board players should post here as a 'roll call' so I know who is interested in continuing this adventure. Just type in the post box below and click Submit Post. All of you will be posting as a generic Player for now (like I'm doing myself with this post), until I get your character aliases (profiles) set up on this Player Account. Just tell me who you are in your post so I know who is checking in. Thanks!


Glorb is still present!


Karieth here, although I am entering the final stretch of a school right now and will be very hit and miss until mid June. Would love to continue, but will understand if being so iffy for a bit is too much.


Morrow here. Count me in!


Why doesn't this one have the list of who to post as? (Morrow here again)


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

I haven't created the aliases yet, though I will. Trying to figure out who is here so I don't go to the trouble for players who aren't going to join the adventure here on the Paizo board. So far I'm seeing Glorb, Karieth and Morrow.

Four players is a damn good start. I might see if I can find another one or two players over the next week or two.

can i recruit people who may be new? to the board and play by post?


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Of course! Though I've actually already got some good leads in the Recruitment section already.


Init: +7 | AC: 18 / FF AC: 15 / Touch AC: 14 [+4 vs giants] | Fort: +2 / Ref: +11 / Will: +4 [+2 vs illusions, no damage on successful Reflex save] | Speed: 20' | Favored Attack: Light Crossbow +10 ranged / 1d6 piercing damage / 80' range / 19-20 [x2] crit | Spell Save DC: 0 Level - 14; 1st Level - 15; 2nd Level - 16; 3rd Level - 17

Test


Init: +4 | AC: 18 / FF AC: 14 / Touch AC: 14 | Fort: +7 / Ref: +10 / Will: +4 [Immune to magic sleep effects, +2 to saves vs enchantment spells/effects] | Speed: 40' | Favored Attack: Magical +1 Composite [+2 STR] Longbow +13\+8 ranged / 1d8+3 piercing damage / x3 crit

Not sure why this isn't working correctly...


Init: +1 | AC: 19 / FF AC: 17 / Touch AC: 12 [with shield] OR AC: 17 / FF AC: 15 / Touch AC: 12 [without shield | Fort: +7 / Ref: +3 / Will: +6 | Speed: 30' | Favored Attack: Magical +1 Greatsword +11\+6 melee / 2d6+4 slashing damage / 19-20 (x2) crit | | Spell Save DC: 0 Level - 12; 1st Level - 13; 2nd Level - 14

OK, now trying to post under Morrow's profile.


Male halfling Swashbuckler 4/Warlock 4 Init: +3 | AC: 21 / FF: 18 / Touch 14 [+4 vs giants] | Fort: +7 / Ref: +7 / Will: +6 [+2 vs fear] | Speed: 30' | DR 1/cold iron | Attacks: +2 rapier +13/+8 to hit (1d4+3 damage); Eldritch Blast +12 to hit ranged touch (2d6 damage, range 250', x2)

Greetings!


OK, I think everything is set up properly now for my d20 WoG player account.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Hi Reonnyn! I posted all those tests as GM West. Trying to set up a player account for my d20 WoG players who didn't want to create a Paizo account.

Welcome to the game! I saw you posted to the Gameplay section, which is great!! :) Hopefully you'll have more company very soon. I've notified my players from the other board, and if all goes well all four of them will be joining you soon.

Ready to continue with spell and sword!

Did somebody else take the flaming sword.

Greetings all! I figured it would be okay for me to pop in here, as travelling is what Celestian has commanded me to do!

Hi just making sure this game is still a go?


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

It is officially a go! Keep in mind that the players on the d20 WoG board are used to a slower pace than what I've found here on this board. I'll try and get them to get used to a faster pace which I've encountered here on Paizo. I'm hoping to move things along every five days or so, especially in the beginning. Maybe once they've gotten used to the faster pace, we can advance the game every two or three days. :)

It's also a bit awkward at the moment as your two groups try and mesh within the story. If things are floundering after another few days I'll step in and force the story along with your two groups becoming a single party.

Morrow, that flaming sword is all yours!

ok so i notice we have a "gameplay" and a "discussion" tab
which is for what, so i dont mess it up
honestly just noticed the 2 tabs, so sorry about that


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

:) Yep, basically the Gameplay tab is for the adventure - you can post OOC stuff in there, but keep it short and related directly to the adventure. Discussion is for in-depth questions, maybe some table-talk between the players to discuss strategy, etc.

I plan to put some stuff in the Campaign Info tab too, starting with formatting stuff for these posts! The Show button below hasn't worked since the board got a facelift a few weeks back, so I figure my players from d20 WoG could use guidance - especially when it comes to dice rolling on the board.

I only started PBP two weeks ago and someone sent me this

all { } you see, replace with [ ]
Bold {b}Text Here {/b}
Italicized {i}Text Here {/i}
Faint blue text for out of character talk {ooc} Text Here {/ooc}
Dice rolls {dice=Attack Roll} 1d20+4 {/dice}
Attack Roll: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (17) + 4 = 21
A spoiler box like this {spoiler=Text Here} secret message {/spoiler}
Making text smaller {smaller} Text Here {/smaller}


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Thanks, Verdan! That's perfect, I'll put that up in the Campaign Info soon for future reference.

Also, just as a heads-up I like for those attack rolls to specify the name (or number) of the opponent you're attacking, and if you can also give me some idea of what your modifiers include, it'd be a huge help as well. Something like this:

{dice=Shortsword Attack Roll} 1d20+8 {/dice} vs Ogre #2
{dice=Shortsword Damage Roll} 1d6+5 {/dice} + {dice=Sneak Attack} 1d6 {/dice} + {dice=Bane} 2d6 {/dice}
{i}Attack roll includes +2 for flanking and bane, damage includes +2 for bane {/i}

Shortsword Attack Roll: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (19) + 8 = 27 vs Ogre #2
Shortsword Damage Roll: 1d6 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 5 = 9 + Sneak Attack: 1d6 ⇒ 4 + Bane: 2d6 ⇒ (3, 5) = 8
Attack roll includes +2 for flanking and bane, damage includes +2 for bane

This way, I can clearly see the player has added +4 to attack roll for flanking and bane enhancement, and a breakdown of weapon damage which includes the bane enhancement, the 'extra' 2d6 bane damage, and the 1d6 for sneak attack attacking a flanked foe.

Like I said, it helps. But I do understand if you don't want to go to the trouble. Oh yeah, and there's a crit threat in there by the way, obviously. Dang, now I just wasted a good roll! :)

First of all, welcome to the Paizo forums.

For all of you, if you look below the box where you post your text, you will see a spoiler labelled "how to format your text". click that, and it will show you the way that you can bold your text, and so on.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

That Show button hasn't worked for me for awhile, Joryn. Not sure if it's a browser issue or what, but I've tried on Firefox and Chrome and still get nothing when I click it. It used to work for me before the Paizo site facelift, so not sure if it's related. Or is it just me?


Male halfling Swashbuckler 4/Warlock 4 Init: +3 | AC: 21 / FF: 18 / Touch 14 [+4 vs giants] | Fort: +7 / Ref: +7 / Will: +6 [+2 vs fear] | Speed: 30' | DR 1/cold iron | Attacks: +2 rapier +13/+8 to hit (1d4+3 damage); Eldritch Blast +12 to hit ranged touch (2d6 damage, range 250', x2)

GM West, I believe this was caused by the revision to the Paizo site. Some of the formatting tags are still not working properly.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Yeah, I kinda miss the larger font size, as it now defaults to smaller only, whichever tag you use. Hopefully they'll fix the issues soon!

I've put out an e-mail to my d20 WoG players, and hopefully we'll see them introduce themselves soon. Whether or not they do, I will advance the story no later than this coming weekend and we'll go from there.


You're right. I just tried it an it isn't working....

Guess I'll go report it.

Sorry, not sure what happend my Init. was +3 and my dex is +0. I have updated


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

No worries! I have yet to really go over the new character sheets for errors and the like. I will do very soon, definitely before the first combat.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Hey, the 'Show' button there seems to be working again. I wonder if they all work as they should...

TESTING...

This is a spoiler, such as revealing who really did frame Roger Rabbit.

Perception: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (11) + 3 = 141d6 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 2 = 7 This is a dice expression.

Hmm... BIGGER still isn't working - at least not that I can see. I'm glad they have the formatting display up and working again, though!

Sorry for my sporadic posting, in the final stages of a school right now. I will be out of touch starting next weekend for close to two weeks, then should be able to post more.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Thanks for the heads-up, Karieth! No worries at all. Good luck with school!

Just FYI, I will be going on vacation, leaving on Saturday, for a week. So my posts may be spotty... Not sure if they have cell service at Train Mountain Oregon or not.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Thanks for the heads-up, Verdan. Have a nice vacation!


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Think I've got everyone's actions for the round, though a few players haven't posted yet. I'll have them go along with the general plan, and will post tonight.

I will be headed on vacation after July 3rd and won't be back until July 10, so I won't be on the board again until that time.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Back from vacation! If Glorb hasn't rolled his save by the time I post, I'll go ahead and do it. Will try to post tomorrow if I can, but if not I'll have one up by the end of the week.

Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Apologies folks, RL is hitting me kinda hard right now. Rest assured this game will continue ever onward, but the pace is going to be a bit slow for the next couple months or so. Please bear with me, and thanks!


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Sorry folks, I appreciate your quick responses but I was just unable to put up my own post and I'm flying out today. I'll return next Monday and this thread will be the first one I update. Thanks for your patience!

Posting this to all my games, so sorry if you see it multiple times:

This week both my office and I personally are going to be moving. It's been crazy busy and I am not going to be able to post until Monday at the earliest. Please bot me if I am in your game, and if you are in a game I am running, I will get a post up as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Sorry for delay folks, life has been a bit bumpy of late and I'm hoping to get back into a regular posting pattern again soon. Might not be until after the first of the year, but I'll be posting during the holiday season for sure - just a bit irregularly. Thanks for your patience!
