I get the impression we are all close enough in age to not matter.

Probably, yeah.

Celia has posted once during the last two weeks and is not responding to PMs.

I would like the group's opinion about how to proceed.

Continue botting/waiting?
Seek a replacement?
Remove her from the campaign temporarily?

I think given that Luckless GM'd multiple games for us we should give them a bit more time. Maybe continue botting to the end of this encounter and then Celia just kind of fades into the background.

If Luckless gets back to us in another week or two then great, we carry on as normal. Otherwise we decide whether to seek a replacement.

Agreed, there’s no rush. GM, if you would rather one of us bot Celia until she comes back or the end of the combat, I’m sure any of us would be happy to take that off your plate.

On an unrelated issue, are any of you going to Gen Con this year? My family and I are going - it’s our third year - and we were finally able to get tickets to the Siege of Gallowspire special last night when the second batch of tickets were released (tier 7-8 Champion). Anyway, if any of you will be there, it would be great to get a chance to grab a cup of coffee in between games!

Celia is easy to bot in combat (for now at least), so that is not an issue.

I simply wanted a feel of the group's opinion.

I found Luckless’s email address from one of our early games, and had a brief exchange with him this afternoon. It sounds like he’s been tied up with real life, but plans to check back in the next day or two and then should be more regular starting next week.

Cool. Wouldn't like to lose Luckless. One of the OGs!

As far as GenCon, ARRRRRGH I'M SO JEALOUS. I've never had a chance to go, though I feel that my ADHD-tendencies would be driven into a frenzy by the "Best Four Days of Gaming". Nevertheless, between end of May (PaizoCon) and end of August (DragonCon), I always envy you northern hemisphere folks your convention season.

*sniff* Used to be my convention season, too.

Every time we go to Gen Con, the voice of 12-year-old me in my head (which is usually just sulking because I grew up and turned into a lawyer) spends the whole weekend giggling. It almost makes up for giving up gaming for 25 years.

Of course, you have a few good cons in your part of the world during what the rest of us think of as the off-season. And with the latest addition to your brood, in just a few years you’ll have enough people to play Pathfinder with at home!

Tis true. And I feel ya, Barkot. I gave up gaming for about 7yrs because I had some misguided notion that as an adult with a career, I wasn't allowed to play RPGs. Silly of me.

My mini-gamers (12 and 9) have trouble concentrating for a single short battle.

I am attempting to run them through the Lost Mine of Phandelver (5e), and we have fun. However, the last session we picked up right at a battle with 4 goblins.

A very quick affair, and I assumed they would move immediately on to the boss battle that they know is in the next room. Nope, they wanted to stop.

I suppose they will calm down and be able to sit through a 1-2 hour session eventually...

Thanks.

I am back now and ready to process any of the party's actions.

So far nothing has happened that would change the current situation. The party is still gathered at the entrance to the room and the strange clicking and movement noises continue.

I assume most of us have been tied up over the holidays - for my wife & kids & I, we’re in our annual push to level up the characters we play at Gen Con, and by the end of the weekend we’ll have played two PFS scenarios and 1 Starfinder scenario.

I’ll get a post up a little later this morning. Paëral, were you going to shoot an arrow into one of the mounds? Does someone have a torch or alchemist’s fire ready?

I can either fire an arrow or just go look...with the size of the mounds, I suspect it’s either giant ants or giant termites as opposed to another swarm...

Hey, everybody - not sure what’s holding up the combat, but I’m going to be a little tied up the next few days. It’s my 50th birthday tomorrow and then on Monday and Tuesday I’ve got a quick trip to Boston for a deposition. I should still be able to check in at least once each day, but if the time when I can check doesn’t match up with my next turn in initiative, I may not be able to post until the next day.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Why am I on delay? What are you waiting for from me, GM? Are we in initiative?

We could use the Discord serve to talk about this, if people are waiting for me for some reason.

@Reillana

The beetle will last for 2 rounds, correct?

Also, would it immediately begin attacking?

-----

You can't see the figure from your current vantage point. You will have to move into one of the squares directly in front of the hallway to be able to see it.

(Not necessarily adjacent to the ants. The other two squares in that 10ft section would work as well)

It doesn't necessarily have to attack, I'd like to have it look menacing but not immediately go on the offensive; it's a Celestial beetle so I'm appealing to it's gentler nature. Reillana doesn't speak Celestial though...

Otherwise yes on the 2 round duration

I think the beetle will have to attack, unfortunately. Seeing a group of unfriendly ants arrayed against you and receiving no orders it can understand, it would fall back on the imperative of the summons.

I'll be generous and let you make an Animal Handling check to try to get the beetle to "Defend".

I don’t think the Celestial template gives summoned animals the ability to understand language anyway, does it?

Apparently not. I guess that must simply be a trope that people pass around.

I might be misinterpreting what you were saying here. However, just in case there is any confusion...

Cure spells work normally on eidolons.

Don't know why I thought that was the case. Why the "rejuvenate eidolon" spells, then?


Shattered Star Maps

From what I read, the Synthesist archetype requires it. It also allows the Summoner to have a native cure type spell.

That was my take; it gives the Summoner an arcane healing option. But then again witches get the Cure spells, so who knows.

No worries! Welcome back.

Of note, are we exploring on two separate fronts? I think Reillana has tossed her light spell down the staircase to the right on the map, while Paeral is exploring the narrow secret passage. Is that correct?

Is that wise?

Maybe not, but Paeral doesn’t know that anyone has moved towards the staircase, he thinks everyone is waiting for him to explore the secret passage...

The goal here isn't to explore, it's to make sure that nothing comes up the stairs at us. We've been out-stealthed by other enemies down here before.

Here's what I'm suggesting: Barkot moves to the front (done - token moved). He opens the door (pull or push?), casts spark into the webs, then steps back into the passage. As the webs catch fire, Reillana steps up, scroll at the ready to cast at anything coming at us from the webs or otherwise.
