Yes sadly PBP can have quite a high turnover, I suppose it is just the timeframe :( I suggest we just sell the Robe and split the money.


Male Human

I would suggest we keep the robe and throw patches down if we need to run away from something, or in order to create a diversion or hamper enemies somehow.

Partly because it would be interesting, and partly because I'm not fond of the sell magic items you don't want to buy ones you do mindset. But if it is easier, yes, let's just sell it and split the cash. ;)

Harness pretty much doesn't care either way.


Shield Bash Podcast

I would also like to point out something here. You are all assuming that selling it would be as simple as saying, here is this robe, I'll take cash. Vendors only have so much gold and this is a small town. What are they going to do with a robe of bones? You'd have to convince them.

This won't be true everywhere, to be clear. But here, they won't buy just anything.


Male Human

Which is pretty much my experience in a nutshell - I'm from another time, where there weren't magic emporiums on every corner... ;)


Cleric (Herald Caller) 1: HP 10/10; AC 17, 15, 12; Init +2; Fort +3, Ref +2, Will +4; CMD 15: Perception +2: Channel Energy 5/5; Enlarge 4/5

But there is a magic emporium, of a sort right? The Feathered Serpent? And from the description it seems like the owner regularly trades with Magnimar, etc. It is at least worth a try I should think?

The only time I will tell you guys not to try is when it will lead to certain death. And even then, that's only a maybe.

The Feathered Serpent would normally trade in such wares. If you're in the habit of selling important evidence.


Shield Bash Podcast

Okay folks, just a reminder from a few weeks back.

I started my new job today. Yeah!
I am now working over night. I have 2 small children. I haven't worked over night in over 7 years. Boo!

Synopsis: This is going to take some getting used to. So my posting will be slightly erratic for a bit. I still intend to post every day, but they may be shorter, little more terse. Just a heads up.


I've worked overnights for a few years now and my posting can still be erratic, though I suppose that's more of a faulty internet connection than time allowance.


Male Human

Yup, I worked night-shift for a few years a few years back. With a young child to look after too. It played havoc with just about every facet of my life, including PbPs. That may be why I quit them for a while too... ;)

Take care, and post when you can!

Yeah, I think everyone understands that real life needs to come first, especially the kiddos :) And congrats again, hope it goes well, and you like coffee ;)


You'll be fine! Also caffeine will solve all your problems.


Giantslayer Combat Map

To be honest I am really not having to restrain my metagaming, it was at least five years ago when I ran in this AP :) Also whoops on posting as Elery here last time, sorry.


Giantslayer Combat Map

I don't trust that Sergeant Gaz, I ain't picking up no bridge man! ;)

LoL. I was hoping that it would be obscure enough that no one knew who Sgt. Gaz was. Guess I was wrong.


I have bad news. RL is calling, so I won't be able to be on for quite a while, so I am going to have to withdraw for now. I apologize for the sudden departure and hope you all have fun. I really hate to have to pull out this early in the game as well, but it can't be helped. Hope to come back to the boards some day.


Oh well. The game is dying fast :(


Male Human

Understood Fire Drake, things come up and life changes...

GM Sphen, if Fela is out too we are down to four:

Elery
Snyk
Harness
Eydor

So, if we are to continue, we either recruit again, or someone/s run multiple characters.


Shield Bash Podcast

Yes, thank you OSW. I am aware of the numbers and have been working on it already. I have another player already lined up.

I will also point out that AP's are designed to be run for 4 players and you still have most of the important roles filed.

That being said, I do prefer 6 players and will start working on another recruit.


Shield Bash Podcast

Also, sorry if I sound grumpy in my posts over the next few days folks. Been rough adjusting so I'm sorry if I get pissy.


Male Human

Eh, no problems. Very happy for you to put me in my place! Don't worry about us and maintain your own flow, get to us when you can.

As for the numbers, I think you are/were doing a great job with 6. I agree, 6 is more fun, but also more work for you...


Giantslayer Combat Map

Grump away :) 4 plays as fun as 5 or 6 to me, but it is nice to have the buffer.


Shield Bash Podcast

Just so everyone knows now and doesn't feel cheated:
When we bring in new players, or existing players bring in new characters, everyone is going to run off of the same XP total. So everyone levels up together.

I will officially be moving our two absent players to NPC's.


Giantslayer Combat Map

Definitely the best way anything else is just awkward.


I'm fine with that, so no problems!

Also, I must say I am quite lost now on the campaign. I've got no clue about where to go or what to do right now (Because for me it looks like we're at an end without nothing else no track or try), and that's why I'm not posting anything. I'm trying to catch up to see if I missed something or there's any clue I've not seen from the recent events or something, so Eydor will say something when I know what he could do right now.

Keep going with the game! He's following the party while I think his next movement.


Giantslayer Combat Map

What about the loot from the goblins?


Male Human

What loot was there?


wasn't there supposedly another exit out of the tomb? did we just find the robe, check that the grave was empty then leave? didn't the goblins come and go through there?


Giantslayer Combat Map

We never really checked, but Elery asked for any claimed I do know there is supposed to be a fair bit, I think they all have potions, maybe a few bits of masterwork weaponry?

As for the Tomb I thought they got in through the front door and it being open was what tipped off the guards?

Yeah. And all had vorpal weapons and dragon hide armor.

You guys never looted the goblins, being to busy being heroes. But missed loot was wrapped up in Foxglove's reward.

As for being lost, this part of the adventure is a little stop and go. I haven't been pushing things along as I'm trying to get the other two players up to an entry point so they can join you sooner rather than later. I'll have a longer post tonight that will move onto another section and hopefully get them in as well.

For those of you familiar with this AP, I'm skipping the "goblin in the closet" part. It's darker than I like to run and brings down the high fantasy that you'd normally get into a real gritty, down to earth depression. If anyone is interested in it, you can google that part.


Giantslayer Combat Map

Ah great, as long as we got it I know Paizo APs can be pretty brutal and they usually give wealth to balance that - I think everyone I have run or played in has slightly upped wealth per level.

Yeah, I remember that being rather bleak, isn't there a dead puppy? I am happy we are fast approaching the extent of my knowledge of the AP.


Shield Bash Podcast

One player down, the other very close. Once the last one is done, I'll make a real big post for everyone. Promise.


I actually was told that there was a "darker" part in the ap close to the beginning (Didn't spoil me anything tho) and I was eager to roleplay it. A shame, but well you decide how this plays!


Male Human

I'm happy with the pacing and direction. Thanking you for running this so far GM!

Just checking in, almost ready.

Hello all! You may rest easy now, for I have come to save you! ;-)


Giantslayer Combat Map

LOL, how are you with overbearing Aunts?

Welcome aboard Tessa :)


Welcome aboard!


Male Human

Howdy RePete. Welcome aboard. For some reason, GM Sphen prefers us to use our main alias on the Discussion thread, and our characters for the Gameplay...

Liberty's Edge

Hello everyone! Happy to be here!


Giantslayer Combat Map

Welcome :)


Understood. I shall try to remember that.

I intend for this character to be primarily battlefield control, but as with any AP/long term game, events in the world can cause that to change. I do tend to plan characters out ahead of time, but depending on what happens around them, they can 'grow' to follow different paths.

I look forward to getting to know your characters and see how we interact. :-P


Male Human

Welcome Nerak.


Shield Bash Podcast

Just as a heads up for next weekend, the Con that I help organize starts on Friday and runs through Sunday night. So don't expect any posts from me at that time. We are also quickly approaching May, which is very busy time for me. So I will probably miss a day here and there (mostly weekends) while I'm doing kid's birthdays and such.


Thanks GM Sphen... :-P

Yes, I do speak Spanish - used to do so much better but I'm out of practice. If needed, I wouldn't be opposed to trying to help out with translating things here and there.


Don't worry, I think I'm managing just fine, I only had some problems with some name confusions I had (Campaign info helped a lot) and some expressions (Mainly from Elery). Nothing basic, I guess I still need more practice for complex jokes!

Liberty's Edge

I'm going to be out of town until Saturday for work and may not be able to
post as much. Just wanted to give a heads up.


This coming weekend I, like GM Sphen, will be offline for the most part. Will be at a Con Fri thru Sun.


How does GM Sphen do combat? Need to wait for our turn in order to post? Or post when able and things are settled at the end of each round? Option 3?

:-P

Block initiative basically, I believe, so if you are in the same group between monsters you can go anytime. So in this case its basically goblins the all of us acting in order of posting.


Shield Bash Podcast

That is correct Elery. Block initiative
