+1 level 2 spell known: Cure Moderate Wounds

Suggestion (Sp):
A bard of 6th level or higher can use his performance to make a suggestion (as per the spell) to a creature that he has already fascinated (see above). Using this ability does not disrupt the fascinate effect, but it does require a standard action to activate (in addition to the free action to continue the fascinate effect). A bard can use this ability more than once against an individual creature during an individual performance.

Versatile Performance:
At 2nd level, a bard can choose one type of Perform skill. He can use his bonus in that skill in place of his bonus in associated skills. When substituting in this way, the bard uses his total Perform skill bonus, including class skill bonus, in place of its associated skill's bonus, whether or not he has ranks in that skill or if it is a class skill. At 6th level, and every 4 levels thereafter, the bard can select an additional type of Perform to substitute.

Perform (Dance) was chosen, to substitute Acrobatics and Fly.

+7 skills ranks:
+1 Perception --> +11
+5 Perform (Dance) --> +12
+1 Perform (Oratory) --> +12

Your spell did affect the golem! It's an unthinking automaton and so doesn't give much reaction. You can even see the damage and fortitude save in the rolls.

To briefly rant, I adore this AP, but the Schloss Caromarc has some major issues. It's a great concept (basically the crazy castle of a mad scientist) that has some ideas I love, but the execution in general is weak.

The motivation to find the count isn't there because he's not established as someone the PCs should give a s$%& about, the loot is largely possessions of the count a good party has no motivation for stealing, and the Whispering Way stuff is way too subtle. There are also obstacles and problems that really have risk, no reward, and little narrative value aside from "this guy is kooky!".

In retrospect I should have rewritten this section of the AP because the actual design is great, but oh well.

Anyways, your motivation is Brodur was supposed to meet you here, the owner is missing, and the Big Bads of the campaign are apparently behind it. Work with what you can. We're almost done chapter 2. :D

How many people could I carry as a dire bat?


.

Huh, good question. This isn't covered in the RAW. It says you can't fly in medium in heavy armour, but medium and heavy armour is about constricting movement as much as it is about weight.

With your strength (+2 from the wild shape), one halfling is a light load, one halfling + wren or two halflings is medium, and Arval or Whiskeyjack are both heavy.

I'll say no problem with a light load, half speed with a medium, and a difficult fly check for the heavy - consequences being that you lose altitude.


M Human Fighter (HP 74/84 | AC:30 | T:14 | FF:28 | CMB: +13 | CMD:25 [+2 Disarm&Grapple] | Fort: +10 | Ref: +7 | Will:+6 | Init: +4 | Perc:+9 | Speed 20 | Insanity 10)

We don't all have to go up there. Arval wouldn't be able to control anyone :P Arval and Whiskey could go from the bottom.

Wren is happy to go from the bottom as well. Also, we could use rope to get to the top too, right? Not that Wren has rope, of course.


.

Rope would work. The tower is three floors high before the exposed contraptions at the top, and each floor is 15'. So that's 45' from floor to top of tower to climb.

As for breaking rule 1, it's written with armour in mind, not encumbrance and all I found reading online was a lot of disagreement from GMs.

For me, I think a giant bat carrying a dwarf is more awesome than a giant bat NOT carrying a dwarf. So I'll go with it.

So here is a plan
wren and kawrock fly eldon and lena to the roof (can i use featherfall to reduce my encumbrance to my flyer?)
Whiskeyjack and arval take off their armour while the others tie off a rope and wren flies the end back to the big fellas.
the two biggers climb while wren flys nearby, aiding, and lena stands ready to featherfall them if they fall.
Once all on the roof, lena activates the storm caller with eldon aiding.
Party buffs
Once done we all descend. Lena and eldon (wren?) go for the bondslave, arval and whiskyjack distract the beastie with harsh words and blows.
bruder arrives and party ends beastie
victory and waffles at that point

+1. You had me at waffles.

However, if there is going to be ropes, then Wren doesn't need to use her fly spell. She can climb up on a knotted rope like a chump.

I thought rule one was when encountering a small seemingly harmless old man, be very cautious and rethink your options.

I'm hand-waving here because this fight is weird. You are on a ledge with an enormous creature beneath you and within easy whacking distance are its head and some tentacles. So no cover penalty. However, it has to attack over the rim of the ledge to get at you, which gives you cover against it. So it's at a disadvantage against you unless it climbs out of the hole.

I'm fine and happy with the handwaving. Wren is out of good options to help, but wanted to clarify the rules.

There is no special rules (at least that I know of) for differences of cover for higher ground. Higher ground bonus (+1) should apply to our melee attacks, however, from my understanding of the cover rules, I think it's more likely that it has cover from us and not vice versa.

Again, there is no special higher ground rule (unless you're decreeing it GM Spiderbeard), but the diagram shows (#2) that the rogue attacks through cover, and the ogre (with reach...uses the rules for ranged combat for deciding cover) does not. We should be attacking down with cover penalty and with higher ground bonus (to melee only)...so -3 to hit. And it should be whacking the AoO loving bejeezus out of us.

In our situation, that's how I see it, but don't feel we should worry about it.

I spent a while constructing a fairly elaborate argument and even started a diagram in gimp because I know the cover rules, and felt they did not fit this situation.

Then I remembered my first rule of a happy table - if there's a disagreement over rules with a player, and the player is reasonable, the player always wins.

The Promethean has partial cover against everyone on the top of the tower and vice versa. CASE DISMISSED!

Congratulations for completing Chapter 2 of Carrion Crown!

This next week is going to be on easy mode as we wrap up the chapter, and give you guys time to level up and of course get new shiny gear.

We have completed two of our monsters of the week, er, year. The first was a haunted house, this was of course the Frankenstein's monster. Next up: werewolves!
