Welcome back Joryn!


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

Good to see you, Joryn! As for myself, things have gone from bumpy to... much more so. I'll not be giving up on posting entirely, I've been GMing pbp for 20+ years and won't give up this easily. But I don't think I've got it in me to moderate until after the holidays. Sorry for the brief hiatus folks, but keep checking in and we'll pick things up again in January.


No problem. See you all in 2019.

I have had a family emergency come up. My posting will be sporadic for a while. Please Bot Reonnyn here thanks!


I am posting this to all of my games, so apologies if you see this multiple times:

Unfortunately, I have some bad news.

A combination of work-related stuff has lead to me having to take some time off from the forums. I am, in all honesty, going to need to be gone for several months, as I am going to be travelling for extended periods of time (weeks or more) and I'll likely not have good access to the internet.

As I am not someone who would want to have you all sit and wait for me here, I am going to be withdrawing/closing all of my open forum games.

I want to thank everyone who I have had the pleasure to game with over the last couple of years here, as I have immensely enjoyed my time on the forums, and hopefully, once my work stabilizes, I will be able to rejoin the community.

Thank you again for your time and energy, and I am sorry that I won't be able to keep things moving forward in any of the games that I am running.


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

Sorry to hear that Reonnyn, I hope everything turns out OK for you and your family. I will indeed bot you until you return, and thanks for the heads-up.

Vrog, I'm totally understand my friend, and thanks for the heads-up. I'll write out Vorlan as soon as I can, and will bot him in the meantime.


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

I'm sorry for the delay everyone, there's some light at the end of the proverbial tunnel though and I hope to get back to some semblance of regular posting in the next few weeks.

I'm not one that normally unloads my woes on people, but I'll go ahead and do it anyway. Basically my life is in chaos right now. My wife and I have separated after 25 years of marriage, I've been looking to get out of the hotel I'm in and into an apartment (just got one yesterday, so that's one obstacle down) and work is ugly with tax season in the early stages of making life miserable for me during the day. Because of the housing situation, I've taken up a second job driving for Uber, which is great because it's on my own schedule, but alas it's usually busiest during the hours when I like to post.

That said, I think I've about nailed down a schedule that will allow me time on the boards in the late afternoon, early evening hours now that I'm not feverishly looking for my own place. I'll probably start doing my driving after the rush hour crowd dies down a bit and go until late, which actually seems to be a fairly busy time period in my area.

Anyway, just wanted to let you all know where my head has been of late, and to reassure you that I'm still around and fully intend to get back into my usual posting schedule of a couple times a week when possible, especially when my players post quickly. It may take me a bit of time to get there, probably until April 15th, as a matter of fact! But over the next couple months I hope to start posting at least once a week or every 10 days at the very worst. That'd be a good start, considering my pace over the past few months...

Sorry to hear about your marage, hope things work out for you.


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

OK folks, I'm settled into my new place and I'm feeling pretty good again - all things considered. I'm planning to start my new schedule of posting during the late afternoon in the coming week. I do hope you are all still around and watching this adventure thread. I'm very eager to start this adventure up again, along with the other three I'm running on the Paizo board.

Thanks again to all of you for your patience with an absent GM. Let's get this game rolling again! :)

Still here GM West...hoping we can pull a miracle out here he he.

Right here


Though I am unconscious and quite possibly just about dead, I'm ready to continue.... :)

Still need a save from Wakandah to know if we are both down!


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

I should have anticipated this week being busy for me as I finished furnishing my apartment as bits and pieces arrived from Amazon - I'm tired of assembling furniture! But fortunately I'm finishing that process up today. Unfortunately, this week has gotten away from me. Let's shoot for a fresh start next week. I'm going to do my very best to hold myself to this promise, folks!


M Human Cleric 5 / Radiant servant of Pelor 3 HP: 50 / 50 AC: 22 (10 Touch, 22 Flat-Footed)(Armor +8, Shield +3) Init +0 Fort: +9 Ref: +2 Will: +11

no problem,I prefer Ikea furnitue over amazon. But you have to pick up at Ikea. Hope you get unpacked soon. Last time I moved was 12 years ago and I think I still have unopened boxes of stuff that "I had to have".


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

I know I need to write out Joryn, but I hope Wakandah is still with us. A powerful spellcaster is going to be helpful in this adventure.

Almost ready, by tonight should be fine, had to work a bit later than anticipated last night and I should have a new pace to live by the end of the day today.


Shadow's Status

Sorry for the silence, RL has been super busy. Will be able to update once more on Thursday.

Happy 4TH everyone.


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

Tried to post last night, but a nasty little storm knocked out my power. Fortunately it's saved in Word, so I'll polish it up this afternoon and get the adventure updated this afternoon or evening sometime! :)


You'll have to move me since I'm not on the map!


Shadow's Status

Checking in RL has just been impossible lately, please BOT me. Hope to be back next week.


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

I've been a bit busy of late, but will find time to post while I'm on my vacation here in the coming week!


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

Sorry for the delay folks, RL stuff and a vacation has kept me busy and sorta off-balance the last couple weeks. I'm going to try hard to get a post up before the end of this weekend.


M Human Cleric 5 / Radiant servant of Pelor 3 HP: 50 / 50 AC: 22 (10 Touch, 22 Flat-Footed)(Armor +8, Shield +3) Init +0 Fort: +9 Ref: +2 Will: +11

no problem


Shadow's Status

Hi Folks, sorry for the long absence had to figure out a number of things in RL. Due to a significant change in circumstances, I will need to limit my presence on the boards and that includes dropping this game. I apologize for the long delay in making contact to inform you of this decision and I apologize if my absence created any issues within Gameplay.


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

Will do Shadow, and I apologize again folks as my own RL issues has made things dicey for me of late. I am definitely still around though, and will be posting to this adventure very soon!


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

Getting caught up on my posting, but I'm not sure how many active players we have in this game? I'm thinking I'll take a roll call to see if we need to recruit.

Will everyone still following this thread check in here? Thanks!

Blessing of Pelor is with this party


Still here


also still here


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

I got confirmation from Glorb's player that he is out of gaming for awhile. Because you're short-handed, I'm going to recruit a new player or two for this game. I'm thinking one of the gladiators in the arena pit will be happy to get some vengeance! And you just happen to have an invisible gnome with a Rope of Climbing to get your would-be allies out of there!

So give me a couple of days to get you some assistance lined up and we'll probably get you a couple new party members at the start of the next round!


Gotta love that invisible gnome!


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

I'm gonna miss him... *sniff*

As Morgrym walks in to introduce himself he accidently kicks the invisible gnome into the dragons maw with an incredible field goal from outside fifty yards. Sages from the future claim it is the first field goal over fifty yards to not be over celebrated or where grown men slapped other grown mens rear ends in congratulations...

Hey, that's my write-out for Glorb! It's perfect!!! LOL!

Glad you're with us Morgrym, I'll be updating this thread tonight I think, and you'll be able to act in the round following after getting out of the pit. :)


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

Alas, didn't get to the post last night. Hopefully will do so tonight and get us rolling again now that the party has some reinforcements! Was hoping to get two fighter types from the pit, but I think one will suffice!


male Human Barbarian spirit lion totem 1/Fighter 7

Hey guys thanks for the welcome and the loincloth!

hp: 12 + 7d10 ⇒ 12 + (7, 3, 5, 7, 6, 3, 2) = 45


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

House rule is you get 1/2 the HD when you roll lower than that on the die. So you've got

12+7+5+5+7+6+5+5 = 52 HP (prior to CON bonuses and any Favored Class bonuses of course!)


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

Morgrym, you can definitely charge the dragon! I've sent a PM to Zeux, but I'll post tomorrow and NPC him again this round if I need to. He's only been quiet for a couple of weeks so I'm betting he's just busy with RL.


male Human Barbarian spirit lion totem 1/Fighter 7

76 hp then whew


male Human Barbarian spirit lion totem 1/Fighter 7

Can't bring up the map on my phone, how close am I to the general?


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

Morgrym, you can take a 5' step and make a full attack!


male Human Barbarian spirit lion totem 1/Fighter 7

Anyone have a way to save the cleric? He has only one round left. A potion or something?


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)

Reonnyn can move in next round. He has a CLW wand. Not sure if Glorb is going to get there first.
