I'm still here, but it was down for most of today for me. I might try and get a gameplay post up tomorrow, sick as heck atm.

I'm flying on business to Canada for 10 days, so there will be a couple of travel days I can't post (although the hotel and the office will have WiFi). Still with all the forum downtime nobody will notice anyway...

I'll be spending the long weekend in Toronto before heading over to Waterloo. Not been to Ontario before (I've been to Montreal twice). I expect we'll probably try to find some poutaine or smoked meat if anywhere has it.

Nice! I've got family in Toronto, but have never been myself. Have a good trip.

Just missing Ruel at this point. The website decided to go down for half the day again, though, so he could easily just not be able to post when he's available still.

I'm going to hold off on posting still for Talia and Vorya to have a chance to post. I think we're just going to have to take it slow for the next week or so. I would much prefer to get back to our normal pace asap, but I don't think we can count on Paizo's site to let us do that so... slow and steady for now.

Have a great trip, Talivar!

Yes very frustrating :(


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

No worries, Uruelleth. Just wanted to make sure everyone was still here. And I completely agree about the website issues being frustrating. We basically lost half a month because of the outages. : /

Hey! No more math! I just had to count out 75,000 gp. I don't want to triple anything!

;-P


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

Hey guys, just a quick reminder to always write your posts somewhere besides the website first (google docs, Word, etc) in case you encounter an issue. Particularly with the website having issues lately, I would hate to see people's posts get lost. I just had an error myself, which is why I mention it. I type things up in google docs beforehand anyway, but wanted to caution everyone to do something similar if at all possible.


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Excellent timing!

There will be no posts from Monday, September 10th to Friday September 14th, as I will be in the wilds of Sequoia National Park.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

Hey folks, I debated mentioning this, but decided it would probably be better to do so and nothing happen than to not do so and something happen. I live in North Carolina, so there's a chance my power could go out for a while starting in the next day or two. While I'm fairly confident I'm far enough inland and out of the main path of the storm to avoid the worst of it, if I don't post for a few days... that's why. That said, I plan to continue posting, power permitting, so please proceed as usual for now.

Best of luck to you. I live in South Carolina, so I'm pretty much in the same situation.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

Stay safe! Looks like y'all might get it worse than us.


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Very jet lagged but back.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

Welcome back! You have been missed.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

With the website appearing to be stable, I wanted to go ahead and officially reinstate our normal posting expectations (once a day M-F, and once on weekends, the more the merrier, of course). We've been more or less doing this for the last week or so, but I wanted make it official so that when combat inevitably breaks out again, posting expectations are clear. I can and will bot if necessary to keep things moving (as I'm sure most of you know). Anyway, carry on!


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Did you expect us to capture this guy so easily GM?


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

No, but part of the fun of Gm'ing is adapting to the unexpected. Keeps things interesting. : )


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Torturing this guy is going to kill all of our alignments.


Female Aasimar Shaman 9 | HP 73/73| AC15 T11 FF14 | CMD 15 | F+7 R+6 W+13 | Init +5 | Perc +21 | Sense Motive +24

Yeah thats why I'm not taking part in it myself - my alignment is already pushing things.


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

I helped!

I love the image of Uruelleth getting fed up about debating weather an arrow would hurt a tree.

Also, GM, love the description of the tree's voice.

Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

Thanks, Vorya!

Also, Uruelleth, if this does come to combat, you can certainly use your rolls from earlier.


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Guys, I'm a bit reluctant to have anyone get within reach of this thing. I doubt it even understands how to make a deal for safe passage.


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

GM: Can i use Mage Hand to try and float a vial of alchemist's fire to the tree? Asking about weight and range, more then if the tree will knock it aside or something.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

You can use that, yes. But it would be a move action to draw out the alchemist’s fire, then standard to use Mage Hand, so it would take a full round. You would also need to get closer given your current range with the spell. You would still need to roll a ranged touch attack... so it would actually take a full round plus another standard action.


Female Aasimar Shaman 9 | HP 73/73| AC15 T11 FF14 | CMD 15 | F+7 R+6 W+13 | Init +5 | Perc +21 | Sense Motive +24

Do we know it’s weak to electricity?
Like, i’m useless (like, i’d just have to pass every round) in this encounter if we fight it now, but I can just pick up lightning bolt and nuke it from range tomorrow.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

Based on your knowledge check from earlier, you would know it’s vulnerable to electricity.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

As a reminder, the tree has SR 18, so you'll need to make the appropriate check for that in your posts. Otherwise, I'll have to roll for you. I would much prefer you all be able to roll for yourselves!


Female Aasimar Shaman 9 | HP 73/73| AC15 T11 FF14 | CMD 15 | F+7 R+6 W+13 | Init +5 | Perc +21 | Sense Motive +24

You might need to bot me for the duration of this combat GM. There are basically no actions I can take.

Its immune to all my hexes, most of my spells, and my blasts are all at a low enough range that I would need to stand within its reach. Also, even if I wanted to risk that, it has spell resistance.


Female Human Slayer 10 | HP: 74/74 | AC 23 (T 16, FF 18) (+2 vs. traps) | CMB: +13 CMD: 27 | F:+11* R:+14* W:+8* (+2 vs. divine, +2 vs. traps, +5 vs. continuing FX) | Init +4 | Perc +15*, SM +12, Bluff +12, Diplomacy +1, Intimidate +5 | Speed 30 ft. | Active Conditions: None

Sounds like someone needs to invest in a crossbow. Haha.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

If there are no actions you can take in a given round, Talia, that's fine. But I would much prefer for you to narrate that in a few lines rather than me bot you entirely. Helps to keep folks engaged. I'm sure you can come up with a few lines of encouragement for your fellow tree-killers. : )


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Not a rules lawyer but it does go on to say this- 'While under the effects of this spell, the target is immune to any new attempts to possess or exercise mental control over the target.'

And an official FAQ: protection from evil only works on charm and compulsion effects where the caster is able to exercise control over the target, such as command, charm person, and dominate person; it doesn't work on sleep or confusion.

I'm fine role playing myself as suddenly hanging out with a cool tree, just trying to be exact.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

It does have a really long spell text...

After your mention of the official FAQ, though, I think you wouldn't actually need to roll a saving throw in the first place. It is a compulsion effect, so... all of you are immune to it.

*Grumbles*


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Deleted my post, will have a correct one up soon.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

I went ahead and did likewise to save on clutter.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

In light of the confusion about the Will Save, I'll hold off on updating us till Saturday evening. I normally plan to stick to the '24 hours' policy on weekdays.

Hey guys!

This weekend is Thanksgiving so I will very likely be unable to fit in a post (although I'll try my best!). Please bot me if needed. My long weekend starts tomorrow, and I’ll be back to regular posting on Tuesday. Thanks for understanding, and I hope you have a great weekend!

Thank you for the heads up, Kilarra. Hope your festivities go well! We'll be following your example down here in a couple months' time.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

Hey folks, I’ve got a question for all of you regarding loot. I’ve been thinking about how best to distribute/use loot going forward. I’ve seen a bit about how Talivar and Uruelleth do loot in a couple games they GM. Rather than giving out random loot, or your latest batch of three pairs of sawtooth sabres, I’m thinking about just giving you the average wealth for your level and assuming you found gear along the way to account for that amount. There would likely still be a few special items I would give out along the way, but mostly the loot would be items you select for yourselves. I would still want you to track loot on your loot list so you can see a list of everything you have and what amount of gold it adds up to, but I think it would help streamline the process. It would also allow more customization for you all and less work for me, so hopefully a win-win. What do y’all think for switching over to this method for loot? Note that I would allow you to adjust your current loot a bit to account for the complete change in system if we decide to go with it. Thank you in advance for your thoughts!
