Will be interesting to see what Giggles does - if I hit I should have a good chance of knocking whomever I hit out. Probably best to go for the gnome to make sure he doesn't act on this round.

But we probably should start thinking about tying them and the other bloke up and such, to ensure they don't escape or something while we take care of Lamm.

I agree that a lack of, say, Perception or Knowledge (local) on every skill list seems somewhat odd.

EDIT: I'm thinking about taking the spot right next to Giggles and Nicholas - Shaeda, as our other other other melee combatant, do you mind if I do that?

Take wherever you like!

I have no rope. Too heavy.

I have no rope because I'm a lawyer living in a city. But I have got animal glue - we can glue them together XD

This is why we need to invent duck tape for this world. Plus, we would be instantly rich.

Brilliant! Now for inventing electricity in Korvosa...

You missed your calling, Mister Lawyer. You were obviously born to be a ducktape salesman.

Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side, and a dark side, and it holds the universe together.

It has always cracked me up when kids, or adults, say that Ben Franklin "invented electricity." As if lightning storms didn't exist before Franklin's day. For that matter, I am a proponent of the theory that the ancients had electricity and light bulbs. The artifacts and art one can find in Egypt and Iran are pretty compelling evidence.

While I know that we can post our actions at any time, are those of us who are waiting waiting on Giggles?

Yes, and then you and Marvel before I'm up.


Male Human Archer 1 | HP 20/20 | AC 17/13/14 | Init 3 | Fort +4, Ref +3, Will +2 | Perception 2

I'm waiting for Giggles, yup. Too many possibilities for what he'll do for me to be able to act - heck, he might even surrender. He wasn't so keen on the fight to begin with.

I am always a sucker for redemption stories... but yeah, it's an open question as to whether he'll become angry that I enspelled him or become worried that we outnumber them something like 9 to 2.

Unfortunately he's not very reasonable, and also a complete sadist, so he's unlikely to redeem. Beats children who don't work fast enough.

Hookshanks would probably be the more reasonable one, as while he's evil he's also pragmatic and a bit brighter. But he's also already slashed a kid, so I don't think he's likely to have a hidden heart of gold either.

Yeah, I don't want to discount any changes you might make to their default characters or offer spoilers to my fellow players, but... I kind of figured as much. Gaedren doesn't exactly hire the nicest folks.


Male Human Archer 1 | HP 20/20 | AC 17/13/14 | Init 3 | Fort +4, Ref +3, Will +2 | Perception 2

One hit for 7 damage - that's 19 damage total now from the party to the gnome. Wonder how tough he is.


Male Human Archer 1 | HP 20/20 | AC 17/13/14 | Init 3 | Fort +4, Ref +3, Will +2 | Perception 2

And Marvel takes out the gnome! Woop woop!

That half-orc needs to be flanked!

You mean the gnome, right? Just to be clear? 'cause your post said Hookshanks.

Ugh. A 16 misses Giggles. That's not a good sign, with my attack bonus. If I'm going for spell combat, especially, I have a very small chance of getting higher than that. >_<

Yeah, he has chainmail and decent dex. Like Marvel said, flanking him would be a good idea.


Male Human Archer 1 | HP 20/20 | AC 17/13/14 | Init 3 | Fort +4, Ref +3, Will +2 | Perception 2

He can't have more than 18 in AC. I think chainmail is around + 6 and a max +2 from Dex, if not, then it is + 5 and + 3. My chain shirt is + 4 and + 4.

Yeah, I'm not worried if we get flanking in, but it's still unfortunate. Not something that we'll need to worry about in a few levels quite so much, but at this level... Aerel's Spell Combat gives him a -1 to attacks, both physical and those that originate with spells.

Also, I can't daze him again for another... 10 rounds? I forget, is it 6 seconds/round or 10?

6 seconds a round, 10 rounds a minute.

So yeah, he'll probably be down before I can get him dazed again.

Bahhh, just beat on him, I'll keep you guys up while you do it!


Male Human Archer 1 | HP 20/20 | AC 17/13/14 | Init 3 | Fort +4, Ref +3, Will +2 | Perception 2

I concur with beating on him till he falls.

Yeah, I am not worried. It's not like he's going to prove a huge difficulty, but I imagine that he will probably fall.

... Say, does anyone know how long it takes to regain consciousness from negative hit points? I'm not saying that Yargin's going to be gone before we get back to him, but it's something we might want to consider.

Reoccurring villains are nice and all, but this one is not one I'd like to make. >_>


Male Human Archer 1 | HP 20/20 | AC 17/13/14 | Init 3 | Fort +4, Ref +3, Will +2 | Perception 2

If we leave the kids with them, the kids will probably kill them while we're gone XD

d20pfsrd is down this evening, so I can't check.

That keeps happening. Annoying.

Yargin was stable when you left him (which wasn't long ago, since you just searched the room, came in here, and only biefly talked with Giggles and Hookshanks before combat began), so in 1 hour he can roll to become conscious.

Ah, so that's something to keep in mind, if we continue to not bring rope along to tie people up after knocking them unconscious.

That makes me very sad. I just wanted you to know. Basic education is plummeting in the states. I referenced the black plague and they were confused. My roommate was having an argument with some one and said that what they had just said was equivalent to her wearing black face makeup and the other person had no clue what that was or what the Jim Crow laws were.

On a more pleasant note. I slept so much! It was wonderful. I also love duck tape! I almost went to prom in a duck tape dress. Sadly the money was not there.

I do have rope but it is not on Emma. And I have no idea if I will be able to check any of my games tomorrow. Work has a mandatory meeting and I have to be there three hours early.


Male Human Archer 1 | HP 20/20 | AC 17/13/14 | Init 3 | Fort +4, Ref +3, Will +2 | Perception 2

I'd love to see a duct tape dress, haha :-D

But it's not just in the states - besides teaching at uni and studying for my ph.d. I also teach a bit at junior year in high school. I'm really quite surprised by the sheer amount of information some students haven't been able to acquire, while of course others impress me from what they have been learning. But it seems like a basic failing of the educational system through and throughout - my personal feeling is that it stems from a combination of parents not spending enough time with their children, it being unrealistic to expect everyone to be able to learn while sitting down and just listening and that teachers need to be given better tools (including better and more adaptive education).

It was really the same while studying in the UK - English is my third language, but I'm still better at it than most of my fellow students were and a good few again surprised me by their lack of knowledge there, and that was at university level.

Buuuut to be perfectly honest it's probably always been like that. I come from an academic family, a lot of my friends are academics, I work at a university. My idea of what common knowledge is is bound to quite simply be wrong.

I see were Shaeda is coming from with the statement that electricity existed before humans invented it for their use, and that it's probably more correct to say that humans discovered how to utilize it, produce it and what electricity is, though I'm not too hot on ancient Egyptians with electricity :-)

Baghdad Battery

Egypt Light Bulb

You can find multiple pictures of the latter.


Duck Tape clothing! This, this, and this!

A large part of the problem is that we teach the test and not the material. This was a major issue in my education before collage. And some of the collage coarse had this issue. I took a chemistry coarse three times. I dropped it twice. It is just not a subject I am good at. But I had the same teacher each time and all his lectures were the same. He had the same lame jokes each semester. It was like he was reading from a script. I was less than thrilled. I taught myself trigonometry because the teacher would rather talk about her family, shoes, anything but math really. And the few times she did it was to read out of the book. She was late to our final by three hours.

I did have some brilliant teachers too but my conversations with the teachers that actually taught ended up chasing me away from my English major. Though the stage fright that I have helped.

I am friends with some rather smart people and I have always had a preference for the intellectually inclined but I am not the smartest person I know and I was not the best student in my opinion. Which was still better than many of my peers. And I am constantly astounded at the lack of basic knowledge in my age group.

@Shaeda, I've encountered them before and found the alternative explanations to be more persuasive. I love the idea though and it'd be quite a cool campaign setting.

@Emma, Haha - my wife could probably have gone for that look when she was younger :-D

Quite agree with what you are saying, but my internet is quite literally blowing away in the wind (and it is time to go to bed), so I don't have time for a long reply. The good part is that it is "only" 44 m/s this evening (98,5 mph). Was at 79 m/s a couple of weeks ago (176,7 mph) XD

I went to about 14 different schools before I graduated from High School (No college here). Anyway, I was always somehow ahead of the class, and I think my main advantage was that I could conceptualize what they were teaching. Had a 4.0 and never studied, and the kids at every school somehow knew it before the first question came.

My siblings have no hope, though.


Good luck with the storms Marvel.

I had subjects I was great at and others that I was not. But the high school and jr high were all about teaching the test so the the sciences and maths that I was horrible in I managed with decent grades. I think I had a 3.5. I do not come from an intellectual lot though.

Nicolas that is an insane amount of different schools! Good on you for stays ahead though even though it did not seem to cost you much.

I LOVE math. I change bases just for fun (binary, etc.). Which is why I like a lot of crunch in games, like rpg's.

I was in 3 schools my senior year, though. That wasn't fun.


That sounds miserable.

Debated trying to get a post-combat post up, but nothing inspiring is coming up, so I'll probably leave it for tomorrow.

And my house survived yet another storm! Although our wooden gate did break during the night, so I'll have to go out and fix that once the wind settles down.

Seems like Marvel actually killed those two. Wonder how he'll deal with that once his daughter is safe and such.

Still plenty of chances for them to stabilize on their own. If the kids don't start using them as trampolines as soon as your backs are turned, anyway. :)

Eh, I wouldn't mourn them. They're likely to be executed anyways, from what I know of Korvosa's "justice" system.

EDIT: Huh, my rolls are kind of all over the place.
