I'll be running #5-99 The Paths We Choose (Subtier 3-4) as part of Redelia's PbP GM Mentorship Program.

I've reserved two spots for GMs from my local community. I will select four from among the GMs participating in Redelia's PbP GM Mentorship Program.

Play will begin on or about November 20.

Oops. Got the cart before the horse. I posted Lady Vanessa's intro in Discussion already, then saw your other post. Machts nix.

FYI, Larry and CariMac already know this, but I travel 20+ days a month. I don't have wifi in the planes I fly, and sometimes there's just no time to post on a short layover. I'll do my best to post every day, but I'll apologize in advance for missing a day here and there.

Lorenzo, would you prefer high or low tier? I have an arcanist 4 (blob of GM and pregen credit, but I have a name and class for her; she's an arcanist) or a halfling sorcerer 7.

I've looked at the other characters, and the four who have already checked in are levels 3-5.

I also could happily run a pregen to balance the party; I enjoy trying something new.


Hello! I am very excited for this game! What is everyone bringing? I would like to bring a Pre-Gen who helps fill a needed role. Any suggestions?

I think it's just you and I who need to pick. The four others have already dotted in with 2 oracles, a sorcerer, and a monk.

If you are bringing a level 4 pregen, then it becomes very clear to me that I should build and bring my level 4 arcanist. If you want input, EwokBanshee, I would suggest that any more martially oriented class that you think would be fun, we have four full casters.

4 full casters and a mostly non-combatant monk... so yeah, something martial would be good. but play who/what you want... we'll manage somehow.

Actually, I don't think I have the time today to build a level 4 full caster from scratch, so I will bring a pregen also. Here's a short list of pregens I would like to play, and think I could give some real depth to:

bard, magus, investigator, ninja

EwokBanshee, pick what pregen you want, and then I will pick one of the above to complement your choice.


Note: Though I originally dotted this with my oracle, whom I would prefer to play, I'm also happy to play a pregen if we need a little more melee/skill oomph :)

@Nomadical (and everyone else):
Please take a look at Hmm's Bot Buddy's Guide to PbP Character Botting. In your PC's profile page, include some general, succinct instructions of botting your PC, if we need to do that.

@Nomadical: Re Lady Vanessa's revelations, Misfortune and Misfortune are amazing. They can also complicate PbP play. To avoid unnecessary delays and a lot of retconning, would it be possible to establish an SOP or basic guidelines for when you would like to use them, especially when we might need to bot your PC?
For example:
Misfortune - "If a bad guy's attack roll or saving throw is 15+, Lady Vanessa will use Misfortune to force a re-roll."
Fortune - "If my attack roll or saving throw is 10 or less, Lady Vanessa will use Fortune to re-roll the result."
Let me know what you think makes sense.

If Ewok doesn't choose a pregen in about the next day, I'll pick one rather than wait for him(?).

Silver Crusade

Sorry, I didn't dot and lost track of time! I'm thinking Zadim the Slayer, since we need a martial!

Ok, I will bring the pregen magus. I'll make the profile and everything later today or tomorrow.

Here's the alias I will be using.

@Lady Ladile: with 2 pregen martials now and the drunken master monk, I vote that you play the Oracle that you wanted to. Especially since my Oracle doesn't prepare cure spells (as a dhampir she took inflict.)

@Lorenzo: Botting instructions added to her profile.


Will do - Corona is currently in another of GM Lorenzo's games but hopefully that one will be wrapping up this week and she'll be good to go to hop into this one. If not, not a big deal, I'll play a pregen :)

Grand Lodge

Swamped trying to keep up with all the PbP Gameday VI sessions being reported, reporting them to Paizo, prepping and distributing the boons.

Corona will be ready to rock'n'roll in time to join this scenario.

Grand Lodge

GM Lorenzo, I'm trying out a brand new character class, and so I'm not ready to give botting instructions; I need to wait and see what I do with the character a bit first. I will put in such a section as soon as I know enough. Is this acceptable?

Also, I'm dotting in with this character, can you please remove Zinta from the character list?

Grand Lodge

Zinta has headed back to the locker room.

Grand Lodge

Thank you.
