Init +2 | AC 15 | HP 35/35 | Saves: S+3/D+2/C+3/I-1/W+1/C+0 | Raging : [1/2 damage except psychic, +2 damage] | Rages : [2/3] | Percp. +3

I got no better ideas.

We can still get the hostages out and NOT let the guy go so we would have to track him. We have the big bad in custody. Let's just try to free the prisoners and keep the bad guy. Unless, of course, we feel we have to free him in order to get the hostages back?


Init +2 | AC 15 | HP 35/35 | Saves: S+3/D+2/C+3/I-1/W+1/C+0 | Raging : [1/2 damage except psychic, +2 damage] | Rages : [2/3] | Percp. +3

But trying to free the prisoners might get them killed, which is something I'd like to avoid if possible. Is there any avenue for a surprise attack, hidden passage etc?


Human Fighter (Soldier)/2; HP: 16/21; AC: 16 (17 Dual Wielding);Init:+2; Passive Perception 12; SW 1/1; AS 0/1

That was my initial suggestion, but DM indicated that they would be wise to a disguise.


Imagine these guys as a group of SEALS that have worked together of an extended period.


Init +2 | AC 15 | HP 35/35 | Saves: S+3/D+2/C+3/I-1/W+1/C+0 | Raging : [1/2 damage except psychic, +2 damage] | Rages : [2/3] | Percp. +3

Well....we got a choice. Let em go for the hostages, or fight them to a man with the hostages most likely dying.


Init +2 | AC 15 | HP 35/35 | Saves: S+3/D+2/C+3/I-1/W+1/C+0 | Raging : [1/2 damage except psychic, +2 damage] | Rages : [2/3] | Percp. +3

Posting to all my games

Just wanted to inform you all that I am currently wading through a veritable swamp of work, obligations, and schooling. As such, for the next two weeks of I do not guarantee my usual posting rate but will attempt to update games when I am able.

Happy Holidays.


If you want I can nudge the story along (and not by massacring the hostages).


Init +2 | AC 15 | HP 35/35 | Saves: S+3/D+2/C+3/I-1/W+1/C+0 | Raging : [1/2 damage except psychic, +2 damage] | Rages : [2/3] | Percp. +3

Can we roll for common sense?


If you want to try and use those mental ability scores to try and get an advantage by all means. Just try to and be specific with the action, and I can give you a specific roll to give for it. So just say what you want to say or think or do and maybe even roll a bare d20 and I can say what modifies the roll in that case maybe.


Init +2 | AC 15 | HP 35/35 | Saves: S+3/D+2/C+3/I-1/W+1/C+0 | Raging : [1/2 damage except psychic, +2 damage] | Rages : [2/3] | Percp. +3

I just wanna know if there's an avenue we haven't considered, like a high roll would be a moment of inspiration that shows me a possible viable path. If such a thing exists. If these two bad choices are our only one, than that's fine as well.

Common Sense: 1d20 ⇒ 18


Init +4 | AC 15 | HP 24/24 | Saves: S+0/D+5/C+2/I+0/W+0/C+5 | spell DC 13 | Bardic Insp: [2] | Percp. +4

Sorry for not posting, lost power due to a storm. Will catch up later tonight.


Init +3 | AC 16(13) | HP 26/26 | Saves: S+2/D+3/C+4/I+3/W+0/C-1 | Perc +2 | 2Wind: [X] | Surge: [X] | ArcRec: [ ] | Spells: 1st (1/2) | Insp: [ ]

Should we flip a coin?


OK, it's been quite a while. I need actions or more discussion by 12 noon CST on Monday or I will advance things along.


Human Fighter (Soldier)/2; HP: 16/21; AC: 16 (17 Dual Wielding);Init:+2; Passive Perception 12; SW 1/1; AS 0/1

Just move things along...we obviously can't decide.


Init +2 | AC 15 | HP 35/35 | Saves: S+3/D+2/C+3/I-1/W+1/C+0 | Raging : [1/2 damage except psychic, +2 damage] | Rages : [2/3] | Percp. +3

You know what they say...when action stalls, have a man with a gun (or crossbow) enter the room.


Init +3 | AC 16(13) | HP 26/26 | Saves: S+2/D+3/C+4/I+3/W+0/C-1 | Perc +2 | 2Wind: [X] | Surge: [X] | ArcRec: [ ] | Spells: 1st (1/2) | Insp: [ ]

I probably won't get to post again for about a week. Happy holidays, everyone!


I'm back from the holidays! I'm sorry for such a long break, but I'll get things moving today (hopefully).

I have not heard anything from Aemon, and if I don't hear back soon I will be forced to replace him. However, I will bot him along as necessary.

Sorry for the lack of updates, my schedule has me out of the house (and away from my source books) largely from 8:30am - 11:30pm. Goes on for another couple weeks, but should be able to sneak in an update here or there in the meantime.


Init +3 | AC 16(13) | HP 26/26 | Saves: S+2/D+3/C+4/I+3/W+0/C-1 | Perc +2 | 2Wind: [X] | Surge: [X] | ArcRec: [ ] | Spells: 1st (1/2) | Insp: [ ]

I've got some bad news. For the past few months, my real-life circumstances have been shifting in such a way as to make it harder and harder to keep up with my PbP games. I kept thinking things would settle and I'd get back to the level of availability I had a year ago (or even six months ago), but it's become clear that my lack of regular availability is the new normal. It seems I can't even rely on my own lunch break as a chance to get my games updated (I'm actually pushing some things aside just to be able to tell you this).

Unfortunately, this means I'm taking a hiatus from all PbP gaming for the foreseeable future. I don't know if I'll get to try it again at all, let alone when that might be. Sorry I couldn't make it to the end. Thanks for the game; it was fun. :)

Sorry to see you go Jiggy...catch you on the flipside!

GM Hiiamtom: We may need to recruiy. Thoughts?

GM Hiiamtom: We may need to recruit. Thoughts?


Well we're close to a clean break, this is the last part of the first section of the module (I know, the module has a crazy long first section).

I didn't see this when I posted, but I'm glad I decided to bot Larissa already! I always feel bad doing it.


Human Fighter (Soldier)/2; HP: 16/21; AC: 16 (17 Dual Wielding);Init:+2; Passive Perception 12; SW 1/1; AS 0/1

Conner Leveled to 4. Took +2 to STR and average HP.


Init +2 | AC 15 | HP 35/35 | Saves: S+3/D+2/C+3/I-1/W+1/C+0 | Raging : [1/2 damage except psychic, +2 damage] | Rages : [2/3] | Percp. +3

Leveled up to level 4 barbarian. Debating on which feat I want to take, but I'm leaning towards Great Weapon Master or Savage Attacker. Boost my damage up nicely.


Looks like we will have newcomers starting next week.

Very good!

Hello there! I understand we have you to thank for keeping the town from invaders!


Yes, three new players will be joining. They have the link to the thread, but I should mention: you can post in the discussion no problem!


Male Halfling Rogue 4 | AC 15 | HP 23/23 | S+0/D+6/C+0/I+4/W+1/C+1 | Perc +3 | Init +4

Hello, and thank you for the chance to play in this game!


Reporting in


So for some OOC story stuff:

Laris finally lived the fantasy she had been training for in fighting the cult in the north-west of town. She's now looking to live the life of an adventurer against her family's wishes.

Peren arrived after the raid as a part of one of the caravans following the cult's movements. He has been following the money so to speak to try and figure out why the cult has been looting all over the Sword Coast.

Norswain is an expert on hunting dragons from a small but infamous clan of dragon hunters that all of you probably know of but only in rumors and legends.

Right now in the game the three of them are together, and I just need to explain why.

Norswain is looking to sell his trade, but also has an ax to grind with anyone looking for dragons to take over so it's simple enough, and Laris has coin and made a little bit of a name for herself in town so is going to be in the keep.

I'm guessing Laris went to the new people camped tot eh south of the town and hired Norswain, but I need to figure out how Peren joined them. Maybe Peren knows Norswain, possibly friends or worked together at some previous point. Peren might be having trouble getting the full story about what happened and is trying to get into the Keep.

I'm just spitballing, so any ideas you guys have will be appreciated. Amber is a mercenary, and Conner is a warrior from Waterdeep so you can easily have a previous connection with them as well.


Human Fighter (Soldier)/2; HP: 16/21; AC: 16 (17 Dual Wielding);Init:+2; Passive Perception 12; SW 1/1; AS 0/1

Conner, having lived and trained among the Purple Dragon Knights of Cormyr, may indeed know any of the new PCs. I am happy to entertain any offers at a previous relationship.


Male Halfling Rogue 4 | AC 15 | HP 23/23 | S+0/D+6/C+0/I+4/W+1/C+1 | Perc +3 | Init +4

Peren is a friendly little fellow, but keeps to himself for the most part. He is always interested in hearing stories of other people, but says very little about himself. Peren latched onto Norswain and Laris while the group was in the camp. Their stories interested him greatly, and he decided to "keep near" in case anything "interesting" happened around these interesting people.

Does that sound ok? Laris and Norswain only know that he came in with a recent caravan and seemed taken with the two of them, for some reason.


Human Bard 4 | HP:23/23 | AC 16 | Init +2 | PassivePerception 10 | S+0;D+4;C+0;I+2;W+0;Ch+6 Spells: 4/4x1st; 3/3x2nd; Bard Inspiration 4/4 (d6)

Now that Laris is aware of a threat, she will be making steps to combat it, so she'd be actively searching out accomplices to investigate this cult more, if you want to play that angle...

I've been a bit nonspecific about where Laris is from, but Waterdeep is a good base for any noble family, so she could have prior relationships with Conner?


Just checking in


Sorry for the looong delay. My whole house got super sick and I just didn't make it here.

Just to keep you all in the loop, during the no-new-notification incident (where forum games weren't alerting folks to updates), I had a member of my family pass on.

As such, I feel it fair to inform you that I updates might take longer than usual (which I know, is plenty long of a wait already) and if you feel the need to drop out of a game I'm DMing or drop me from a game I'm participating in, I understand.

That said, I do hope to update within a couple days as I could use the distraction as the usual business of these events tend to warrant. Thank you for your understanding.

Life moves on eventually. I just need some time.


Not a problem at all, my policy is as long as you express interest you're welcome to participate. I'll just not hold the game up waiting for a response from Amber.

My condolences for you loss.

Relatives are almost all gone and I think I've recovered emotionally. Expect me back in posting form by the end of the week at latest.


I have been hit by a seemingly unending list of IRL issues, and I wanted to let you all know. I will return as soon as I can to my regular posting but it may be as long as next week before I have time again.

Sorry for the long wait for even this response, but I cannot express how crazy it has been.

Finals are over and I'm currently competing at a national leadership conference. Should be back by Monday and resume a better frequency of posting now that schools out.

Apologies for the lack of keeping you all informed. Up until now most free time was trying to fix metaphorically shooting myself in the foot on one final.


Jeez, rough rolls...


Init +2 | AC 15 | HP 35/35 | Saves: S+3/D+2/C+3/I-1/W+1/C+0 | Raging : [1/2 damage except psychic, +2 damage] | Rages : [2/3] | Percp. +3

Just a heads up, will be on a short family get-away. Should be back Monday to reliably post.


Bump?


Unfortunately, IRL has taken a turn that means I need to end my games on here. I'll mark these as inactive soon, but want to give a chance to see the message.

Sorry to hear that.
