Let's do it!


Male Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Chelish Diva) (HP 11/11 | AC 11 | T 11 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +0 | R +4 | W +4 | Init +1 | Per +6)

Any map needed or is this straight to combat?


Male Human Dungeon Master 2/Fop 1

Straight to combat :D most of the time I dont need maps.


F Half-orc CG Urban Ranger 2 | AC 17 T 14 FF 13 | HP 17/18 | CMB +4 CMD 18 | F +4 R +7 W +2 | Init +6 | Perc +7

So... how are we going to take out the seven Hellknights on the wagon without killing them? I'm reluctant to start the combat without discussing tactics first. All Zali can really do at the moment is attack them using lethal damage - I doubt trying to use non-lethal damage would work, given that we're outnumbered. Best she could offer is to use her whip to make trip attacks. Thoughts?


Male Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Chelish Diva) (HP 11/11 | AC 11 | T 11 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +0 | R +4 | W +4 | Init +1 | Per +6)

I have some thoughts but have to wait formy turn in initiative.

Male Human Dungeon Master 2/Fop 1

Good thinking :D


Sweet move, Shannon!


F Half-orc CG Urban Ranger 2 | AC 17 T 14 FF 13 | HP 17/18 | CMB +4 CMD 18 | F +4 R +7 W +2 | Init +6 | Perc +7

Very nice move, indeed!


Male Human Dungeon Master 2/Fop 1

Celia - you do get that save, sorry, and you succeeded. Take 4 damage total.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Chelish Diva) (HP 11/11 | AC 11 | T 11 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +0 | R +4 | W +4 | Init +1 | Per +6)

I am here, just waiting on Addie's action before I take my own. It potentially determines my target and action.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Chelish Diva) (HP 11/11 | AC 11 | T 11 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +0 | R +4 | W +4 | Init +1 | Per +6)

The order of actions has gotten a bit out of whack, so I'm going to wait for the GM to resolve some things before I post again.


Male Human Dungeon Master 2/Fop 1

And I have done so.

Why not? You should add inspire, bless and +2 from favored enemy. For the future!

I was just going off what it said for favored enemy in the CRB, but I was taking it literally;

However I think the section you quoted in bold clarifies the matter. :)

What do we think about taking a minute to steal some heavy armor off of the hellknights? 30 seconds per if Zalika and Celia work together to yoink it.

I'm assuming they're all wearing scale mail or chainmail. I'm also assuming we can hawk it at a reasonable price, considering that it's all hellknighted up. Would some of the people at the church buy it from us for materials?


Male Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Chelish Diva) (HP 11/11 | AC 11 | T 11 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +0 | R +4 | W +4 | Init +1 | Per +6)

Or keep them for subversive uses. Never know when you might need and armiger outfit.


Male Human Dungeon Master 2/Fop 1

All of the armigers are wearing hellknight-scaried-up chainmail, and the Hellknight priest is wearing masterwork full plate armor.

You can get to three of the armigers and the priest.

Shannon will take the four CLW potions, but will keep one for himself and give one to Celia, one to Addie, and one to Zalika.

Hey all!

Congratulations on LEVELING UP!

Please do your level-up, posting what you gained from the level-up in this thread. For health, you can take the average or you can roll for it. If you roll, use the dice-roller here :D

We'll move on when y'all are done.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Chelish Diva) (HP 11/11 | AC 11 | T 11 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +0 | R +4 | W +4 | Init +1 | Per +6)

Bonus!

Hit Die: 1d8 ⇒ 3


Yay!

Is the average for HP the PFS method (half HD +1)? So a d6 would be 4?


Male Human Dungeon Master 2/Fop 1

Yes, you have the right of it.

Cleric has the saddest level 2, right next to oracles. I got a 1st and 0 level spell slot. Woo hoo.

Nope. Saddest level two is sorcerer - you get a single additional 0-level spell, and a can cast and additional 0-level and first level spell per day.

@ Leinathan - Since Zali was a replacement character, and has missed everything that went on before the rescue attempt, is she levelling to second as well?


Male Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Chelish Diva) (HP 11/11 | AC 11 | T 11 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +0 | R +4 | W +4 | Init +1 | Per +6)

Picked up the Daze spell, inspired by Addie's witchy charms, as well as Eagle's Splendor, which only comes naturally for pretty boys.

Gained Versatile Performance, with his talent in singing giving Shannon a gratuitous insight into Bluffing and Sensing Motives.


Male Human Dungeon Master 2/Fop 1

She is indeed leveling to two as well. I don't really like keeping track of experience, and it takes a special kind of gaming group to have a bunch of characters at different levels.

I like to keep everyone on the same power level, too.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Chelish Diva) (HP 11/11 | AC 11 | T 11 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +0 | R +4 | W +4 | Init +1 | Per +6)

The groups I run use party XP rather than individual XP. If they miss an encounter of opportunity for experience, they all miss it. That way everyone levels at the same time and they have an incentive to work together to level more quickly. In addition, it works out that if a player is missing from the group and the challenges are therefore a bit harder, the XP bump for them facing adversity is higher because it is divided by less.


Male Human Dungeon Master 2/Fop 1

Eagle's Splendor is a 2nd-level bard spell, Shannon. You gain access to those at 4th level. I believe you have to choose a different spell.

Let me know when everyone is done so that I can move on.

Oh yes, sorry - Zali is done. Took two-weapon fighting for her second level ranger's combat style, and selected the two-weapon fighting feat from the bonus feats under that style. Spent her skill points, added 7 hp to her total (6 from hit dice and 1 from Constitution bonus), and updated the profile page. No complications for a second level of ranger.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Chelish Diva) (HP 11/11 | AC 11 | T 11 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +0 | R +4 | W +4 | Init +1 | Per +6)

I thought so, as well, but Hero Lab made it available to me as a 1st lvl. I will check to see what the exception is. May just be a different source.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Chelish Diva) (HP 11/11 | AC 11 | T 11 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +0 | R +4 | W +4 | Init +1 | Per +6)

That's right, it's because he's a worshiper of Shelyn. The deity entry in Night of Frozen Shadows for Jade Regent has the entry:

Quote:
Clerics and paladins of Shelyn may prepare charm person as a 1st-level spell and good hope as a 4th-level spell; they may prepare sympathy as an 8th-level spell but can only cast it on works of art. All priests treat charm animal as if it were a 2nd-level spell on their class spell list. Bards may learn eagle’s splendor as if it were a 1st-level spell. In addition to unbreakable heart (see Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Gods and Magic), her priests have access to the following spell.

Though it appears in that AP sourcebook, it applies universally.


Male Human Dungeon Master 2/Fop 1

Alrighty, as long as its legit (and it looks legit enough), that's totally fine :) Thanks for finding that source.

I think maybe Addie is not done yet?


Male Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Chelish Diva) (HP 11/11 | AC 11 | T 11 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +0 | R +4 | W +4 | Init +1 | Per +6)

That's the thing about using Hero Lab. It sometimes does some stuff you might think is wrong, but there's a reason why it does what it does (it just doesn't always explain). When I added it I remember thinking those statbooster spells were all 2nd level spells, and then I thought I bet this has to do with having Shelyn as a deity. The 1st level version of the spell listed Jade Regent as the source, and then I checked the paizo forums as to why and and voila. I'm pretty pleased because that's one of those spells a bard wants to have a lot of, and it is nice to have it as a 1st level spell.


Working to update now. Will take average hit points (4 plus Con bonus). I gain a new hex and two new spells (plus Ventriloquism as a patron spell), plus I plan to purchase some scrolls of spells to teach His Lordship with my share of the spoils from the sale of the Hellknights' gear.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Chelish Diva) (HP 11/11 | AC 11 | T 11 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +0 | R +4 | W +4 | Init +1 | Per +6)

The only way we should sell the Hellknight gear is on a Westcrown black market, if somebody has connections that way. Otherwise its like beating up some state troopers, taking their guns and badges, and selling them at the local pawn shop. :)


Zali and Celia, are either of you interested in being the recipient of an Enlarge Person spell in combat? If so, I'll take that as one of my new spells.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Chelish Diva) (HP 11/11 | AC 11 | T 11 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +0 | R +4 | W +4 | Init +1 | Per +6)

Take it for me. Just imagine the destructive capacity of a High C with large-sized lungs.

Ahem... that's a yes, thanks. Unless we're in a sewer tunnel or other small enclosed area, of course.

I think that'd be just about fine.

What I'm interested in is this hellknight's full plate. I'd love to be the armored tank clanker for the party, but I'm a feat away. It all depends on if the armor is way recognizable as "Hey, a hellknight!" and, sadly, it probably is.

It may be possible - if the GM is agreeable - to roleplay finding an armorer willing to make enough cosmetic alterations that the plate becomes not instantly recognisable as having belonged to a Hellknight. No idea how much that would cost IG though - but it would have to be a fraction of the price of a brand new set of plate armor.


Male Human Dungeon Master 2/Fop 1

It's certainly possible to remove the aspects of the armor that make it noticeable as Hellknight armor - fortunately, most of this was the priest's mask, so the biggest thing you'll have to do is procure a new helmet and make a Craft (armor) check to re-hammer some of the more dramatic intimidating portions of the armor.

So, I'm still here. Anyone else still here?


Male Human Dungeon Master 2/Fop 1

I'm still here also, just waiting for things to happen on your guys' end :D

I mean, I can make stuff happen, but I usually prefer that you guys make stuff happen.

Ah, my bad. In future I'll make something up to post then... :p


Male Human Dungeon Master 2/Fop 1

So my idea for the next bit is that you just return to the monastery - Janiven is there, she just had to loop around a bit. You rest, there's a thing that happens the next day, and then we go on another adventure.


My apologies, everyone. For the past week I've been battling what's turned out to be a case of pneumonia, and this is the first that I've felt well enough to even sit upright and turn on the computer. Can't guarantee much posting in the next several days - very low energy and meds that may start making me feel even worse in different ways (yuck!) but I'll try to keep up. Feel free to 'bot Addie if need be. Thanks!
