Vorya has a hammer and only sees nails.

He is betting they are Red Mantis agents or something.

I want to start a drinking game, where you take a sip when Kilarra smirks.

It would be a very short game if you count the perpetual smile of her alias's picture.

Haha. Smugness is her constant state of being.

It was hard to find an image of a good smirk!

For everyone: If you haven't already, be sure to add your starting items to the loot list. I also added a shared tab for wands, potions, etc. that everyone can benefit from and for items that haven't been assigned yet.

Oh, hey, on that note, it won't let me add my gold to the sheet. How do I do that?

Two questions GM-

1. Do the others count as 'allies' for my teamwork feat yet? If not, when do we seal that deal?

2. This my current teamwork feat- Bonded Mind: As long as you can see each other, you and an ally who also has this feat can trade nonverbal messages. These function as the message spell, except that you don’t need to whisper or point, and you cannot be overheard.

Does that mean it is a one-way communication or can the others reply to me through telepathy? Curious on your ruling.

Thanks!

There’s probably a “protected” section of the sheet. I’ll remove it so you can edit that part.

1. I’ll say yes.

2. It says ‘trade’ messages, so I would say yes, except the wording of Solo Tactics indicates your allies receive no bonuses from the feat, so I’ll have to say no. It’s still a really useful ability, though.


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

So I can communicate to them, but they can't send messages back mentally, right? That is what I thought you'd rule, just figured I'd ask.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

Yes, that's correct. They can, of course, respond the old fashioned way, they just won't be able to use telepathy. If the wording of the ability wasn't so specific, I might rule otherwise. But, like I said, it's still very useful.

True, but it seems this is functioning as a bit of a trial-by-fire.

Gotcha, and responded (hopefully appropriately considering the ruling of Vorya's ability).

Sorry for taking all day to post. Crazy busy today.

No worries, Uruelleth. And you responded appropriately. I'll be updating us tonight, but it will probably be tomorrow night before I can update us again as I'll be at a renaissance festival for most of the day. Really liking everyone taking the initiative to reply to each other, though, so feel free to continue doing that in the meantime.

Can I talk to the bear?


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

You could certainly try. You might find more success by relaying a message through Zeldana, though.

Hi, all.

Due to dealing with complications from the death of a friend, I'm afraid I can't post today. Hopefully I can resume tomorrow.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

I’m so sorry to hear that, Zeldana. Thank you for letting us know and best wishes.

What sort of items do we want as a party?

I could use my 3,000 gp to get a metamagic rod of Extend spell, but in general, I don't have a super amount of items on my immediate wishlist - I'll eventually be able to craft.


Human Sorcerer 9 | HP 47 / 47 AC 19 (Mage Armor) T14 FF16 | CMB + 3 CMD 17 | F +7 R +9 W +11 | init +7 | Resource Tracker

Metamagic rods are great, Talivar already has one of those from his initial spend.

Anyway I'd imagine the party could do with several CLW wands, a lesser restoration wand, and let's face it a ressurection scroll ;)

Oh and counters to deeper darkness.


Female Human Slayer 9 | HP: 67/67 | AC 27* (T 18*, FF 22*) (+2 vs. traps) | CMB: +12 CMD: 26 | F:+10* R:+13* W:+8* (+2 vs. divine, +2 vs. traps, +5 vs. continuing FX) | Init +4 | Perc +14*, SM +11, Bluff +11, Diplomacy +1, Intimidate +5 | Speed 30 ft. | Active Conditions: Shield, Invisible

I'd agree wit Talivar. We should spend the group money on healing items for the party. We'll need them, and the healer/s shouldn't have to spend all their cash on trying to keep us all alive and kicking.

Not sure what Kilarra will be buying for herself, but I'll spend it soon.


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

How about we hire some assassins to do the job for us?


Female Human Slayer 9 | HP: 67/67 | AC 27* (T 18*, FF 22*) (+2 vs. traps) | CMB: +12 CMD: 26 | F:+10* R:+13* W:+8* (+2 vs. divine, +2 vs. traps, +5 vs. continuing FX) | Init +4 | Perc +14*, SM +11, Bluff +11, Diplomacy +1, Intimidate +5 | Speed 30 ft. | Active Conditions: Shield, Invisible

Kilarra chose to get a belt of giant strength +2 as her enhancing object.

She spent the coffer of money (and the rest of her original coin) on trading up her composite bow to a +3 instead of a +1 strength modifier, an aegis of recovery, trading up her chain shirt to a +1 chain shirt and buying an extra potion of cure light wounds and cure moderate wounds.

I've updated her stuff on the loot table, and added the portrait of Rix to the group items.

I'm sure some of your old pals in the Guild of Wonder wouldn't mind a shot at the Red Mantis. ; )

Also, just as a reminder, I am trusting you all (and Vorya in particular) to keep the loot list up to date. If you have any questions about items you can purchase and such, just let me know.


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'm sorry. Work has been hectic lately (I am hiring a new person and was at a conference all last weekend). Did I miss anything?


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

I don't think you've missed anything, Vorya. Everyone's just been discussing the items they're purchasing and which stat-enhancing item they went with.

I'm looking at a swarmbane scarab. Swarms are generally so nasty that every party member may want to pick one up at some point. But early on, giving the melee guy the ability to do full damage to swarms might be the best option for my 3K. Any other suggestions?

I always view it as a MAD thing. We deliberately make swarms TPKs for us and then dare the GM to kill us (and ruin his game).

If we pool our resources we have 21000g if I've got that right. Here's what I'd suggest as a starting point:

4x wand of CLW: 4 * 750g = 3000g
1x wand of lesser restoration: 25 charges 2250g
1x wand of daylight: 10 charges 2250g
1x wand of haste: 10 charges 2250g

The raise dead scroll is too expensive.

Total: 9750g

Talivar would go for a +2 charisma headband. I'll probably be boring and go with an AC boosting item for him, likely a necklace of natural armor +1.


Female Human Slayer 9 | HP: 67/67 | AC 27* (T 18*, FF 22*) (+2 vs. traps) | CMB: +12 CMD: 26 | F:+10* R:+13* W:+8* (+2 vs. divine, +2 vs. traps, +5 vs. continuing FX) | Init +4 | Perc +14*, SM +11, Bluff +11, Diplomacy +1, Intimidate +5 | Speed 30 ft. | Active Conditions: Shield, Invisible

Kilarra's too selfish to put much of her own cash into the group pool at the moment, sorry. Later campaign I'm sure she would, but not this early.

We could go with a wand of cure light wounds (750gp) and a half charged wand of lesser restoration (2250) for our group's 3,000 gp.

Instead of buying herself the potions she purchased she could donate that to the group, giving 350 gp towards a second wand of cure light wounds if someone else wants to go in on it. A group wand of daylight and haste are cool, but I wouldn't consider it a priority over an extra wand of cure light wounds or two.

Who's going to be wielding said wands by the way? Vorya, Zeldana or Talia? If some others don't mind donating from their cash maybe we could buy a cure light wand for each of them, in case of emergencies?


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

Vorya can wield a wand.

I agree, at this level, without a cleric, wands of healing will be most useful. Maybe after a bit we can see what sort of perils the GM likes to throws at us and see what we need. No use getting Daylight if he never uses anything that responds to it.


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 note I can select Life as a wandering spirit to select channel. Obviously, not something I'd prefer doing often since Lore is going to be 100% better at level
6 or so, but for now taking Life is a good option for me.

Talivar is more than happy to put some or all of his own 3000g towards buying the stuff.


Female Human Slayer 9 | HP: 67/67 | AC 27* (T 18*, FF 22*) (+2 vs. traps) | CMB: +12 CMD: 26 | F:+10* R:+13* W:+8* (+2 vs. divine, +2 vs. traps, +5 vs. continuing FX) | Init +4 | Perc +14*, SM +11, Bluff +11, Diplomacy +1, Intimidate +5 | Speed 30 ft. | Active Conditions: Shield, Invisible

Kilarra will put in her 350 gp for sure then, helping Talivar buy a wand of cure light wounds.

Was Vorya's preference for four cure light wands with the 3,000 gp then? Or a wand of cure light and a half-charged wand of lesser restoration? If most of us prefer the 3,000 be spent on cure light wands then Kilarra would put in the 350 gp to help Talivar buy the wand of lesser restoration. It's not much towards it, but it'll help.


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

In the interest of maximising wealth.
I can prepare Life any day. This would give me the ability to spontaneously channel energy as a cleric, and lesser restoration as a 2nd level spell. Life will (probably) be my default choice for the next two levels.

I think CLW wand is great because there will be times we need top up healing, but I don't see the need for restoration wand. Just wait a day tops (if Iv already cast it that day). That said, if we think we will need to cast it twice or more every day, then I recommend a wand of it.


Female Human Slayer 9 | HP: 67/67 | AC 27* (T 18*, FF 22*) (+2 vs. traps) | CMB: +12 CMD: 26 | F:+10* R:+13* W:+8* (+2 vs. divine, +2 vs. traps, +5 vs. continuing FX) | Init +4 | Perc +14*, SM +11, Bluff +11, Diplomacy +1, Intimidate +5 | Speed 30 ft. | Active Conditions: Shield, Invisible

Naw, we don't need it then. Talia's got the restoration covered.

Does anyone else have a suggestion for part of the 3,000 gp then? Or are we all happy with four CLW wands with it?

If there's a concern about a need for lesser restoration, a handful of potions might be the way to go. Unlike wands, scrolls and spellcasters, drinking a potion of lesser resto is one standard action, while the spell takes three rounds to cast. That immediacy can be a lifesaver if someone's dealing with Constitution poison. They're 300 gp apiece, but if they save someone's life, that's gold well spent.

Thank you, friends.

She was a neighbor of mine who’d been in Hospice care for some time with advanced brain cancer, so thankfully it wasn’t anything sudden or unexpected.

She made her preparations and we all got our chances to say goodbye long ago when she was still lucid, but it still doesn’t stop her passing from being a somber event.

Concerning our newfound boons:

Zeldana will certainly have a Headband of Alluring Charisma +2 as her stat item, and as for the 3,000 gp...

Talivar, I like the Wand of Haste, and Metamagic Rods will certainly come in handy, but I'm not sure I agree with spending so much gold on wands of CLW when we have two capable healers in Talia and Zeldana. Perhaps only one wand per healer, just in case? Zeldana automatically gets all Cure spells on her spells known, and has a significant amount of spells per day in addition to her SLAs.

I also don't see the use of a Wand of Daylight. Am I missing something? It's just the Light spell with a wider radius, longer duration, and slightly inconveniences creatures with light sensitivity. It does not seem useful for something so expensive.

As for Zeldana's needs, she's going to want some new armor with this newfound gold. GM_Zek, would it be possible for her to go to market and sell her +1 chain shirt, attempting an appropriate skill check to get a better price than the usual half-of-original? Now that her CHA mod is +5, +1 Studded Leather Armor would make more sense, but she as a character wouldn't do it if she lost too much money in the process only to end up with the same AC.

If possible, magic barding for Bobar would also be awesome. It'd be 1,450gp for a set of +1 Chain Mail Barding.
