All invited to check in and create characters!


I was leaning towards a generic barbarian, as posted before. Probably switch some gear around to include a wand of cure-the-barbarian.


I had started a goblin alchemist (fire bomber) thinking he would be a fun firework worker for the carnival.


Okay, I'm thinking half-orc Ranger with the Beastmaster archetype and a War Bull animal companion...

Edit: Or Infiltrator archetype with either Fey or Outsider favored enemy...


Okay just reiterating: 15 point buy, 2 traits, 10500 gps, correct?


I'm imagining a merfolk bard who plays the calliope


Since we're starting above first level, would a pro-rata healing wand be allowed?

Edit: Sorry if I missed this in the other thread, but were hit points addressed? Is it maxed at first, and then average every level thereafter? What about animal companion hit points, if applicable?


So it sounds like some folk want to be in the circus, ot just going to it?

Carnival of tears is oldschool DnD so let's be brave: Hit points max at first level then roll HD for levels 2-5! Hahah!

Great thanks DM Holly. I have a Drow Sorcerer I am dying to play, will have it up for review tonight.

I am planning on being a visitor to the area and checking in on the circus out of curiosity.

HP for levels 2-5: 4d10 ⇒ (7, 8, 8, 1) = 24

Edit: Dice for Animal Companion
Wolf HP levels 2 and 3: 2d8 ⇒ (3, 6) = 9


hp: 4d8 ⇒ (5, 6, 5, 6) = 22


Shadow's Status

Hit Points - 4d6 ⇒ (1, 1, 5, 4) = 11

That's ugly :-)

Ouch Shadow! Your mother must have given you a sickly disposition *cough* *cough* *wheeze*...

MendedWall, reasonable healing wand is perfectly fine of course. Being able to heal while getting slashed up by evil-fey-carny-clowns makes game WAY more fun!


Awesome, I've got my half-orc Infiltrator Ranger with his trusty wolf companion all but done, just need to put finishing touches on the gear. He's got a composite flaming longbow as primary weapon, archery focused, obviously. I even gave him Bullseye Shot.

Backstory is going to be along the lines of: mother stumbled into Falcon's Hollow after escaping orc captivity with her new baby. She fell victim to the elements, and he ended up in the care of the local herbalist (I've got a Falcon's Hollow Primer, so I'll include her actual name when I can look it up) who was in a romantic relationship with one of the Lumber Consortium's scouts (I don't think that's actually in the primer, but I'm taking creative license for the narrative). Raised by both, he learned knowledge of the land, knowledge of herb lore, and to hunt and kill the Fey that so dog the Lumber Consortium and prevent their work. Gives Him a great reason to hate the fey (which, I'll admit, was a little metagaming on my part, but it does fit the Falcon's Hollow setting), and puts him squarely in Falcon's Hollow when the Carnival of Tears begins. :) Super excited about this! Thanks for offering to run this Holly. :)


lvl 2: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5
lvl 3: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4
lvl 4: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2
lvl 5: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4

looks like my favored class bonus is going into hit points ha
15+9=24+5favored class=29

Yesss, awesome goblinoid. We'll be sure to get him plenty of firecracker fun...

I'm pump about this quick module too. Its one of the better written I've come across. Super creepy, cool maps, and I think there are like 5 fair maidens in distress waiting for-ta git saved!


F Vesk Soldier 8: Spd:30, Init:8, Sp:0/72, HP:1/62, RP:4/8 EAC:26, KAC:29, Fort:8, Ref:8, Will:6 (+2 vs fear), Perc:0 Lowlight

Okay, thanks, wasn't sure if this was going on, as discussion of changing aps was on, will be a little late getting up character though.

Unser construction by Storyteller Shadow progress so far...


Ghoran Oracle 5 | HP: 12/41 | AC: 19 T: 10 FF: 149| Init: +2, Perc: -1 Fort +3 Ref +1, Will +3

4d12 ⇒ (5, 5, 4, 7) = 21

So I hope the bard is ready to be the front line :)

Ah you'll be fine without a heavy fighter. It's not a tough module. Better to pick characters that will be fun to RP:)

Getting close. Little background shift and then Gold spent and I am done :-)

EDIT: Done!

Lawful Evil, SR11! Nyice. Holly like.

I'm just poking fun because Toodles won the statistics game. 22 on 4d6 is very good, while 21 on 4d12 is slightly below average, plus merfolk is a very strong race if you can get around the mobility issue.

You always need a frontline fighter. It's just the wizard sometimes.

Okay, so we have

  • Tamar the Drow Sorc
  • Jandar the Barbarian
  • Amazing Opo the Goblin firebomber

So need characters from


  • Doublegold (he warned us he'd be late getting character together, no problem)
  • MendedWall12 Half orc Ranger?

And what do you all think of something like this for initial party glue?: Over the last few days you've all met the Amazing Opo in town while the Carnival sets up. Loveable little goblinoid, that guy. Now it's the first big night of the Carnival and Opo's got his fireworks all set up for the big show later, so he's got a few hours off. In the mean time, he's promised to show you all around the great Carnival on this chilly cloudy-grey wintery evening...

Yeah?

Sounds perfect, and, yes, half-orc Ranger Infiltrator archetype.


I feel forgotten :(
But I'll have a merfolk silver balladeer up before too long

Ack! Sorry Toodles. Not intentional...

Presenting Koddast Male Half-orc Ranger (Infiltrator). I will be working on the back story this afternoon and tomorrow, but I wanted to get the crunch up here for everyone to look at. Let me know if something looks wonky Holly.

Thanks!

We gettin' close everyone?

Finishing my character up now, was very tired after work, and just got to it a few minutes ago.


HP 3/14 | AC 12, T 12, FF 10 | CMD 14 | F 3, R 3, W 4 | Init +3 | Perc +5, Darkvision |
Active Spells and Conditions:
HAF
Half-Orc Bronze Dragon Sorcerer/2
Spells per Day:
I:5/5

Klorine, carnival calliope player, star performer and merfolk ingenue, is ready enough for play. She'll be fine tuned before my first post and not later than tomorrow.


Male Shirren Mystic 4: EAC/KAC:16, Fort:3, Ref:2, Will:8, SP:28/28, HP;30/30, RP:6/6, Init:1, Perc:11, blindsense

Finally all done, I'll worry about changing avatar when my energy is restored. I just thought I'd have fun playing an ogre and being the largest humanoid at the carnival. He would fit in well, especially at the freak show, because he was treated as a freak, when living with other tribes or trying to fit in at school. Though the group of humans that raised him, loved him well, and taught him how accept it and love who he is.

Nice work everyone! You can touch up stat blocks tomorrow. But time to start this party...

Just wanted to let you know that I got Koddast's back story up on his profile in the spoiler. Take a look, at your convenience, and let me know what you think.

Nice. What do I think? I think I looked at the box-o-mini-figures on the encounter map and all the fey pogs in there are now pretty frightened...Appears Koddast and the She-wolf are known and feared through the forest, haha!

We'll see if he can keep his narrative flowing and not get sucker-punched by some bad dice rolls. :) I'm hoping that +15 to hit against fey (+5 BAB, +4 Dex, +1 Magic, +4 Favored Enemy, and +1 if they're within 30' for Point Blank Shot) will help with his reputation. If he can stand in one spot and use his move action to get the additional +4 from Bulls-eye shot, Koddast is looking at a pretty decent +18 or +19 (if there within 30') to hit Fey creatures. Add into all that the fact that he doesn't take the normal -4 penalty for creatures engaged in melee, and that, if needs be, Vysla can trip opponents trying to close ground on him, and then move at 50' a round, and I do think Koddast is built to last. :)

Yeah that's a nice build you are definitely out to kill some fey. Gonna have to figure out what to do about fire-archers *grumble grumble*. I'll bet the fey queen of the forest already has you on her naughty list, so that might be a fun encounter, haha: Lady Syntira points a long slender fey-finger at Koddast...What's HEEE doing here??? she scowls!

Well, sorry for the delay. I was hoping our missing players would show up. From now on I'll be sure to post a minimum of 1x each 24 hours to keep the game going:)

I decided I wasn't weird enough for this party, so a I switched to a ghoran wood oracle instead.


Male Shirren Mystic 4: EAC/KAC:16, Fort:3, Ref:2, Will:8, SP:28/28, HP;30/30, RP:6/6, Init:1, Perc:11, blindsense

It's okay now, but I actually do have ranks in stealth. Yes, I know, a sneaky ogre.

Oh wow, that was a totally bigoted generalization on my part! I had no idea I was harboring secret racist attitudes toward Ogres! So sorry...
