Out-of-character discussion goes here.

As a reminder, this game does not officially begin until August 27.

"And now we wait," Jillia paces.

She's ready to go unless I decide to put some GM credit from GenCon on her. Even if I do, she still be level 4.

Asked elsewhere:
You'll begin in Nantambu, in the Mwangi Expanse.

If anyone has played 6-12 and/or 6-16 of the Scions of the Sky Key series with this PC, you will recognize the area and be aware that you are in Sharrowsmith's Exports in Nantambu.

Heh, I didn't have too far to go. My last mission was here.

Am I still on time for this?


Five-star Hound of Tindalos. Er, GM. Whatever. | RoW Encounter Map |

Yep! We start in earnest on August 27.

Please introduce your PC on the Gameplay tab. Your GM would also appreciate some pertinent info in your PC's header (hp, AC, level, etc.) for quick reference's sake.

Otherwise, you're good to go!

Kaylee Brd3 (44004-10)
Jillia Cav4 (29696-16)
Nemis Psy3 (1824-16)
Inira Mnk3 (150786-7)
Stonegrin (37010-10)

What class/level is Stonegrin?

Day job checks are fine now, or you can wait until the end if you prefer.

We had a sixth from the lottery, but that player has not checked in or replied to PMs. Ordinarily, I'd give a bit more time, but we did have an alternate so I will reach out to Qstor for checking in.


Five-star Hound of Tindalos. Er, GM. Whatever. | RoW Encounter Map |

Update: Qstor has found another game of this, so you're at five. Wanna recruit a sixth (Nemis and I might know someone interested), or roll with the five?

Hmm, now that's an issue; Beyond Azlant Ridge is tier 3-7, so Stonegrim isn't eligible to play. :-(

You can choose a different character that is in tier, or play a pregen, though. Sorry!

The Exchange

Init +1 Perc +7 (Darkvision) HP 21 AC 23 (T 19 FF 19) REF +3 FORT +6 WIL +5 (+3 vs. spells and poison)

Hmm I'll look into the pregens then cause I don't have any level approriate characters available.

Is there any particular base that needs covering? Skills, magic, frontline?


Five-star Hound of Tindalos. Er, GM. Whatever. | RoW Encounter Map |

I always encourage people to play what you enjoy.

That said, for reference:


  • Kaylee is a Bard;
  • Jillia a Dex-based Cavalier;
  • Nemis a Psychic; and
  • Inira a Zen Archer Monk.

The party looks a bit short on divine and could also use a(nother) frontliner.

Heh, that's Oloch, actually.

Moloch has MUCH different connotations. :-)

Oloch is fine, I'll put him on the map.

Jillia is cool with Oloch.

She and Moloch would get along a bit more...heated, heh.

Hey, can people let me know if they can move the pogs? I started the maps for this one on Google Slides cos I was told many can move things on their phone. I'm interested to know whether that's the case. For reference, the link is at the top of the page.

(I'd check myself, but I have a Windows phone so the answer to practically anything like this is "no, not on that platform.")

It works on my phone. Not particularly smoothly, but I can move things.

(It works far better on an a computer with a mouse, of course.)

Yeah, TECHNICALLY I can on my phone, but it never really works. The odds are high that I'll just mess up the map.

Unless there's something odd, bless and inspire courage partially stack. The bonus to saves v. fear doesn't (both are morale bonuses), but the bonuses to attack rolls do (bless is morale, but inspire courage is a competence bonus).

Jillia is correct.
Your GM apologizes for the error.

(Can tell how often I play bards, huh? LOL)

No worries!

I've been GMing a bunch of low-level stuff, and that question always seems to come up.

In my neighborhood, everyone seems to play a "friendly support character"- -which has led to more than a few moments where the party is full of them (and they have to figure out what stacks with what to turn their +2BAB+1 Strength level 3 bard into a competent melee frontliner). Fun times!

I will be unavailable essentially the whole weekend, as my wife and I are going to a wedding and then have our own 5th anniversary celebration. I will resume normal posting Monday night or at worst Tuesday morning.

Hope to get a post out at lunch but can't promise that. If not then, hopefully this evening. RLCF.

Hey everyone, just a heads up, I'll be completely offline from Thursday night until Sunday night. I'm running 3 legs in a relay race that spans more than 200 miles. We run non-stop, so I won't be in any condition to post or check the boards until after sleeping in on Sunday.

I'm returning from my conference tonight and will be available to post tomorrow. Unfortunately, I will be completely out of touch Friday through Sunday because I had a death in the family and will be going to a funeral and visiting family. Please continue to bot me as needed, and I apologize for this uncharacteristic lack of posting.

Jillia would've told you that she didn't see them when she looked through before; and the crack is small and narrow, maybe nine inches long and not quite two inches wide.

Day jobs, anyone?
Also need to know if anyone is going Slow progression.
Also also, Muzhaa'f, I need your PFS #/character #.

Lastly, everyone gets a single boon roll (no reroll). But that won't happen until after I get the chronicles out.
