Happy Thanksgiving for those who celebrate! I won't be posting much for the next day or so. Deszõ, hope all is well! :)

Hey! Discussion!


Current Map: Fishcamps Guardhouse

Yeah, I had forgotten to link it earlier!

1. Sorry, Chiquq, I blame snow blindness! I should have known better, since I'm a fan of Tanya Taqaq. Great voice.

2. Likewise, I haven't been reading Desző correctly. Now I shall learn about the Hungarian double acute ...

3. A slight nudge and reminder that I'd love to have folks posting daily--it is the best way to keep an AP on track. We got years on this one, so keeping it moving really helps. Thanks to those who can and if anyone's struggling to get to the keyboard, lemme know.

3.5 Oh, and not yet, but I will need a loot tracker person. :)


Human :: HP 12/12 :: AC 14 CMD 14 :: Fort +2 Reflex +2 Will +2 :: Perception +6 Initiative +2

Sorry for the mega-post, guys. A lot happened when I was unable to post. :/

Loot tracker ... I'm not the one you want tracking the loot. Detail management is not a strength of mine.


Current Map: Fishcamps Guardhouse

You, unable to post? :D

Speaking of not being able to post, I'm going camping from Friday to Sunday. Going dark for a bit. :)

Sorry for vanishing and not giving notice. My ISP turned the bandwidth spigot down to 'pathetic trickle' and it made it nearly impossible to access Paizo.

It looks like my ISP is starting to fix the problem so I'll try to catch up with the game this evening. Feel free to bot me if needed. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Current Map: Fishcamps Guardhouse

In case anyone cares, I'm placing Heldren further west along the Jalrune from Demgazi. Some details in the module suggest it may be on the north side of the Wood, but it doesn't realllly matter. :D


Human :: HP 12/12 :: AC 14 CMD 14 :: Fort +2 Reflex +2 Will +2 :: Perception +6 Initiative +2

I don't know enough about golarion or this AP to know if that makes any difference. :p


Human :: HP 12/12 :: AC 14 CMD 14 :: Fort +2 Reflex +2 Will +2 :: Perception +6 Initiative +2

Also, I never chose my free potion. Any suggestions?

I could easily go with Cure Light Wounds ... always good for low-level survival (especially as a mens for you all to get Braegan—our primary healer—back on his feet should he get knocked to negatives.

Or I could pick up something a bit more fun. Maybe an Enlarge Person for one of you hitters to use in a big fight. Having a potion that makes you as big as a house seems the kind of thing a guy like Braegan would be interested in carrying around ... for funzies.

Sorry for my unavailability during travels!


Current Map: Fishcamps Guardhouse

Happy New Year, everyone! In the New Year I have plans to put y'all's HeroLab profiles (with a modified name) on Dropbox, plus an extra character by the name of Loot. :D

That should make it easier to move stuff around. Uh, I think. I don't quite know the ownership properties of an HL file on Dropbox. We shall see!

Please be safe! Me, I'm at home recovering from surgery earlier this month, so I can post allll the time. Imendri knows that I posted during the last game from the hospital. ;)

RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

Happy New Year back!

I'm guessing the post-holiday crash is still slowing people down a bit...


Just wanted to drop a quick apology into all my games. The days between Christmas and New Year turned out to be a lot more chaotic/busy than I’d expected (despite — or may because of — them all being work-free).

I’ll be able to start catching up tomorrow. I’ll try to post tomorrow, then with my usual consistency thereafter.

Thanks for the patience, everyone.


Current Map: Fishcamps Guardhouse

I'm sitting here with tubes in my nose, so none of you have a worse excuse than that! -cracks whip- That is to say, see you soon.


Witch 15 | HP 92 | AC/T/FF 29/21/24 | CMD 31 | F +12 / R +14 / W +19 | Init +4 (+0); PER +24 (+20) |

Sorry for the absence. I was traveling over the holidays and my laptop chose that time to crap out. I've got things sorted now and rebuilt my character cheat-sheets. I'll try to catch up quickly and post in the next day. Sorry again.

Happy New Year! Same story as all of the above, with the added detail that I was most recently at a North Carolina mountain wedding of a certain person with whom our esteemed GM is familiar. A very small but fun gathering. Hope your recovery is going well, Axolotl.


Current Map: Fishcamps Guardhouse

Oh YAY! I am very happy for that certain person. Very happy indeed. I am recovering slowly but surely.

Here's a link to the 'Loot' 'character. So far, nothin'. :D

https://www.dropbox.com/s/bykbw6vkzyaszbx/Loot%20-%20ROW.por?dl=0

Does anyone have an objection to other players having access to their character sheet? I can give the link to the entire folder, if not, and then people can move items around (I think).

On a language note, so is Desző pronounced "Des-shuh"? Or 'Des-shuhhh', like a macron?

And according to my research, 'Braegan' would be pronounce with 'ae' like 'hat', so 'Brag-ahn'. Seems apropos. ;) Each language has a different rule for 'ae'! :D

More like Des-shuh. Like the link on this page:

By the way, your "loot character" link takes me to the front page of the campaign. Funny that.

I'm fine with you posting my character sheet. I may need to clean it up. Would I be able to switch it out myself, or would I need to send it to you to do it.


NG F Hunter 3 | HP 24/24 | AC 17-13-14 | F+4, R+7, W+3 | Per +8, Init +3 | 2 level 1 spells remaining

Yeah, no issues sharing out sheet.


Current Map: Fishcamps Guardhouse

I shall fix the link and give a new link for the whole folder unless we have a "secret paladin" or some such. Never did understand those shenanigans.


Witch 15 | HP 92 | AC/T/FF 29/21/24 | CMD 31 | F +12 / R +14 / W +19 | Init +4 (+0); PER +24 (+20) |

I'm good with public character sheets. And anyone who wants to look at Mahb's 'unmentionables' is braver than I. ;P


Human :: HP 12/12 :: AC 14 CMD 14 :: Fort +2 Reflex +2 Will +2 :: Perception +6 Initiative +2

You've already put more thought into Braegan's name pronunciation than I have. I say it "ay" in my had, but i have no linguistic basis for that. :)

And yah, i'm good with everything being public.

BTW, this weekend is going to be pretty hit-or-miss for me. My wife is out of town and i'm heading to my parents house.


NG F Hunter 3 | HP 24/24 | AC 17-13-14 | F+4, R+7, W+3 | Per +8, Init +3 | 2 level 1 spells remaining

...oh, I didn't realize we were doing loot tracker as a Hero Lab file. *blink*

I mean, I have Hero Lab, but... that'll necessitate anybody who wants to update the communal loot has to DL the .por, edit it by adding each piece of gear through the HL interface, and then reuploading it to the Dropbox, yeah? That seems perhaps needlessly complex...

If that's how you want to do it, GM, you're the boss-- most of the groups I've been in that do a loot tracker use a communal spreadsheet, like this one, so anybody who has a moment and wants to change it/place a claim on a specific item can just edit it quickly in-browser. Your call, of course.


Human :: HP 12/12 :: AC 14 CMD 14 :: Fort +2 Reflex +2 Will +2 :: Perception +6 Initiative +2

I second the excel. A Google sheet is a good way to go.


All right, all right. Bloody pushy players. :D

I'm at NAMM today. Tawk amongst yourselves.


NG F Hunter 3 | HP 24/24 | AC 17-13-14 | F+4, R+7, W+3 | Per +8, Init +3 | 2 level 1 spells remaining

sorrreee *ducks*

Here's a tracker for us

And yes I shall tawk amongst myself! ...wait...


Current Map: Fishcamps Guardhouse

Has anybody seen Stormraven, Mahb's player, lately? I have been in touch with Imendri and am going to see if he can resume the game. If not, I'll recruit or take suggestions immediately. I will do my best to increase game momentum.


NG F Hunter 3 | HP 24/24 | AC 17-13-14 | F+4, R+7, W+3 | Per +8, Init +3 | 2 level 1 spells remaining

He's in a game I GM as well and has been AWOL, unfortunately. I PM'd him a day or two ago about that one and haven't heard back. :(


Human :: HP 12/12 :: AC 14 CMD 14 :: Fort +2 Reflex +2 Will +2 :: Perception +6 Initiative +2

I haven't seen him in any of my games. Nor have I heard from him offline (we don't chat much, but we touch base every once in a while).


NG M Tiefling investigator (empiricist) 3/swashbuckler (inspired blade) 1 | HP 35/35 | CURRENT AC 24 | AC 20-14-16 (+1 with mutagen and +3 with shield spell) | F+3, R+11, W+4 (W+3 if using mutagen) | Per +11, Init +5 | Inspiration 3/5

Hope it works out with those two. In any event, I'll just keep checking periodically and be ready to do my part once we get rolling again. FYI, I will be out of town this weekend and may or may not be able to post.


Current Map: Fishcamps Guardhouse

I will message Stormraven, and if I don't hear from him and/or Imendri, I will start recruitment on Monday. I'd like to keep the play at 1/day post, and we haven't been able to do that, so let's see what we can do!


Human :: HP 12/12 :: AC 14 CMD 14 :: Fort +2 Reflex +2 Will +2 :: Perception +6 Initiative +2

Agreed. Onwards and upwards. (Though hopefully both those guys are alright)


Current Map: Fishcamps Guardhouse

Folks, it's Monday and no peep from Stormraven. I am going to re-open recruitment. I would advance the game, but I'm on mobile (no internet at work right now), so I cannot. Thanks for your enthusiasm and patience!


Current Map: Fishcamps Guardhouse

Folks, a new player shall join us soon. May the dice gods favor you in your battle against...whatever it is you're fighting.

Huzzah!


Hi all, super happy to be in this game. From what i've been reading, most of you have played together before, so I'll go ahead and introduce myself.

I'm 35, currently living in the Netherlands for ~4 years (before this I lived in Iceland for almost 5 years and before that in my native country, Romania). I'm not new to Pathfinder or PbP and I just started my adventure as a GM a couple of months ago, playing Rise of the Runelords with friends (noobs all). I'm a game developer, bookworm, tiny powerlifter and cat person. I'm super organized, so if you need me to keep track of stuff or make handouts I'll be happy to do that. I'm hopeless at making optimized characters (feel free to give me pointers on how to make Yrja work better with the group), I'm more focused on character concept and development.

I'll be playing Yrja, Tiefling witch and Mahb's foundling apprentice. I still have two language slots open, I think I'll take Kellid for one (everyone else has it!) and I'm open to suggestions on the other.


Human :: HP 12/12 :: AC 14 CMD 14 :: Fort +2 Reflex +2 Will +2 :: Perception +6 Initiative +2

Welcome aboard, Kittenmancer. :)

A few of us have played together, a few have not, but overall it's been fun so far. I don't have much experience with witches at all, so I won't have much insight for you.

Braegan is Mahb's nephew, by the way, so he and Yrja have likely at least met each other a time or two. He was raised in town, though, so unless Yrja went to town a lot, their amount of contact is likely low ... which will make it all the more realistic as we learn about each other's character in-game. :D

Welcome! Another tiefling -- that will be interesting for Dezső!

And thanks for the info about you. I've never played with the other players before now, although I know the GM from way back. I'm 44 and living in San Francisco. I've played in a couple relatively short-lived PbP games, and I'm GM in a weekly tabletop Pathfinder game (Carrion Crown AP, about to start the 6th module), and I run a Pathfinder game for my 11 year old son and some of his friends (well, we've been on hiatus, but I hope to start running the Iron Gods AP soon). I'm also playing in a D&D game with my son and some other kids/dads. One of my proudest parental accomplishments is that my son is running a Pathfinder game for some of his friends at school. He's also inventing an RPG with another friend. Thus, so far so good with passing on the hobby!

Anyhow, there you go. Good to have you in the group!

Chiquq says: ANOTHER DAMN TIEFLING?!?

;) I kid. Welcome aboard. Eben and I are play-buddies with a history but other than that I'm new to the group as well. I'm a California girl and a Venture-Lieutenant in my local PFS.

(Dezso, I didn't realize you were also in Cali-- are you planning on going to DundraCon in two weeks?)

I have a 10th level witch in PFS play who I'm pretty happy with; I'm happy to offer tips though it kind of depends on what direction you want to go with a witch. I see you have Slumber and Cauldron as your current hexes; keep in mind that Cauldron will take 2 hours to 'use' basically, so it will require us to basically stay in a location 2 hours more if you want to brew a potion (since you still need your eight hours' sleep). If there's sufficient downtime, it could be useful, though.

Slumber, otoh, is a powerful hex that can easily break encounters, since it's essentially a "save-or-suck"-- enemies who don't make the save are usually out of the combat, full stop. Of course, you'll run into some things immune to sleep effects, such as undead and various other oogie boogies, but it's definitely a powerful option, and it's up to you how often you want to wind up using it. My own witch doesn't have Slumber, which is a choice I made because I don't personally enjoy "one dice roll to end the fight" abilities, but I won't deny that Slumber can easily save lives and make a PC much stronger. Optimizers would probably definitely say to pick Slumber. ;)

My own witch is focused on debuffs as a first priority (Evil Eye and Misfortune), though she can do everything from healing to buffing PCs as well.

I don't see a familiar yet on your sheet-- I strongly strongly suggest a flying familiar, it will make your life much easier.


@Braegan - Mahb has been keeping Yrja hidden, even from her nephew. There would be too much retconning to do otherwise. :)

@Desző - thanks, I think Yrja will also be extremely surprised when they meet.

Thanks for the tips, @dien! I haven't decided which direction to take Yrja yet, it also depends on what the group needs the most - I'm flexible. Character-wise, she would probably lean more towards buffs and controlling. My familiar is a rat. I could switch it for a flying squirrel or a bat, although I like the Fortitude bonus.

RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

If you want to buff, Fortune hex is great for that. The reason I highly recommend a flying familiar is because you can deliver both (touch) hexes and (touch) spells via your familiar, and the ability to fly can sometimes make for invaluable mobility in that regard.

My witch has a hawk; fly speed 50' means that if I'm 40 feet away and our fighter goes down, I can cast a cure spell, the hawk can fly over, and touch the fighter, etc. Or if there's difficult terrain between me and somebody I need to reach (like, say... snow!). Or if there's a ton of bad guys between me and somebody I need to reach. It just gives you more options, but you should obviously run with whatever you personally think will be most fun and enjoyable for you to play.

Misfortune is a great controlling hex, as well. Making the baddie roll twice on every single roll for as long as the hex is up (which you extend with Cackle) and take the worse is a great way to stop the evil dudes from hurting your friends. :P

Aside from that, you will, of course, still have actual spells at your fingertips. As you go up in levels, your spells become a little more useful than your hexes, usually, so the classic control spells like glitterdust, and blindness/deafness, will still be handy for you.

/blather blather mechanics. Sorry, I'm not as optimize-crazy as this probably makes me sound!

Yes, Dien, I am in California, but I'm not much of a CON goer (in fact, I've NEVER been to one), and I couldn't really swing the trip down south with family obligations. But it looks like fun!

RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

Fair enough, fair enough. I love going to cons though I don't manage it as much as I like. I'll be there, though, lol. Playing 12 hours of PFS a day for four days.....

(I'm in the Central Valley myself.)


Current Map: Fishcamps Guardhouse

I am also in CA, as is Imendri (my last local PC!)...but I am also a family man and save my Cons right now for NAMM. Maybe a Star Wars convention in the future, as I have two daughters who both want to meet Adam Driver. :D

RPG Superstar 2015 Top 16

Snoooows... of California....


Current Map: Fishcamps Guardhouse

And, pardon my manners, I see you have all given Kittenmancer a warm welcome! I happen to know two tiny powerlifters myself--great people. Chiquq made a loot sheet, so I'll link that in the Campaign info.

I'm not super worried about optimization nor Slumber-spamming---let's see how we fare. :)

No problem. I can roll with that.

About me? I'm mid-30's, married, 3 kiddos under 5 (what is this sleep you all speak of?), and live near Dallas, TX. PbP makes up the bulk of my gaming, though I've picked up a local Star Wars game (the new Fantasy Flight system) recently that's been a blast (Force-sensitive war-fugitives, FTW!).

Um ... um ... not sure what else to say about me. I tend to play martials and can fall back on making wordy posts when I'm not thinking about it. :D
