For Discussion!


I wonder, can you post in here?


All good?


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

All good!

Also, I wrote up Rudabeh's appearance today if you want to read it. I had a lot of fun describing her sword.


Ooh, very nice. I'll be sure to include some color blind characters.

Obviously, it is too early for this, but I'll say it anyway.

I am a big believer in communication. Things you like, don't like, want to see, don't understand, please tell me.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

Hahahaha, I'm all for it, it's good to be inclusive! I mean there has to be some colorblind creatures out there, and darkvision is black-and-white. I think I messed up slightly though, and Undine don't have traditional pupils/irises? It doesn't really go into detail but I think it's just white sclerosis, blue pupils, no iris? Will have to correct that.

Oh don't worry I'll start complaining as soon as Rudabeh starts getting hit in combat :)

But seriously I appreciate it and will absolutely communicate any concerns.


So are you saying you want to fight a dragon?


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

Right now? Like it swoops in and eats Veleda?

In seriouness though sure why not? Come to think of it I've never fought a dragon in any Pathfinder or DnD game I've played in.

ARE there any dragons in the River Kingdoms?


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

It only took me a few weeks but Rudabeh is 100% finished! Her personality is done and I have added some goals/desires/motivations. I will probably change/update them as time goes on.

I like to make flawed characters, ones that explore the depths of their flaws and compensate or overcome them. She has a long way to go to be paragon of law that Veleda is, but I think she can make it!


I can't explain why (yet) but that last post was hilarious for greater plot reasons.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

Lol oh no... I'll try to remember this moment so when the revelations occur I can have a laugh at my accidental foresight.


So what do you make of Veleda and some of the others? Do they seem distinct and interesting people?


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

Yes absolutely! I'm impressed you can keep all of them straight considering I can barely play one character. :)

I will probably start a spreadsheet with all their names, duties, etc and notes on them so I can keep track of everything. I have the feeling there will be a lot of characterss in this campaign and I don't want to make a slip up because I forgot about so-and-so.


I'd love to have access to that spreadsheet if you do make it. It can help me to know what you know/guess with NPCs. I do plan on having a good deal of them. They are a bit thick and heavy right now because this is the mandatory "Meet the factions!" time.

That said, it'll happen all over again in Pitax. Rudabeh will have to keep her wits about her.


This game makes me wordy. Sorry!


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

No need to apologize! It's wonderful and I love reading it.


I never considered that Rudabeh would be used to bribes and stuff.

I think I picture her as more naive then she is. Must make sure not to keep doing that.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

I imagine her as being a very suspicious person as well until someone wins her trust. The kind to assume the worst (within reason) but still keep a smile on or go through with things regardless.

I wouldn't be surprised if others would also interpret her universal politeness as naivete, it makes sense.


Was making it rain a bit too much? Your GM sometimes lack subtlety.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

Lol no I think it's cool! I'm always a fan of having weather play a part in games. Though from Rudabeh's view rain is a good thing...


Being a weird race is far less of a handicap in a solo game but it will make any sneaking you try to do, difficult.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

Rudabeh isn't really the sneaking type so it shouldn't be too much of a problem.


Page 2!

And what do you make of His Supreme and Inimitable Magnificence?


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

He's supremely chaotic! I could tell his alignment without the aura, but it's always good to get a sense of people's powers. I like him, though we'll see how him and Rudabeh get along.

I have always had difficulty playing chaotic characters (though ironically I have my most posts on one), so seeing him in action acts as a great guideline for my own character.


I tried really hard to find an ooze that would be edible but failed.


Sorry for the info dump!


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

You could always invent an edible ooze! Its honey-like scent drives mammals or other olfactory-sensing creatures into a mad, slavering hunger! They are compelled to eat it... and while they eat it, so too does it eat them. But if its mass is sufficiently reduced so it can be "killed" its portions are a gluttonous delicacy!

No problem on the info dump, it's necessary in a game like this!

By the way here's the spreadsheet I said I was going to make with the Npcs. It's not very well fleshed out right now but I'll keep adding to it.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

Man I'm glad this isn't real. The social anxiety of this political situation would make me curl up in a ball on the floor and stay there until everyone left.


Spoilers but it is going to get about 100 times worse.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

Lol oh no....Well if I start having panic attacks from a make-believe scenario I'll let you know.


Sorry, Easter and Taxes.

Post tomorrow.

A big one.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

Hope you had a good easter! I do my taxes as soon as I can submit them, I always worry I'll forget otherwise.

A big post... That sounds ominous.


A walking talking cliche.

Enjoy.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

Oh gods no an adventuring party! This is awful. Also the last thing I expected!

They even teleported in unannounced! How is Rudabeh going to let this one slide?!


I didn't even think of that until you posted. I was going for rude and showy but they actually deeply offended your own faith. I had a few different versions of this scene but glad I went with this one.

Look Who is Coming to Dinner.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

Oh no, this is worse than I thought.

MY CHARACTER HAS BECOME A MINOR NPC IN A KINGMAKER GAME!


Have you played Kingmaker?

I hope you enjoyed the little joke. It is a bit meta but they will grow into real characters soon enough. That elf already seems a handful, eh?


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

I'm in a kingmaker campaign right now actually, as Vallen Silverclasp (priest of Torag and architect). I was asked to join near the end of the first book, right after the previous players took out the Stag Lord.

Coincidentally, this group of adventurers seems to be near where we're at in my game!

Oh this is great I love it. I mean the kingmaker campaign is a huge part of the River Kingdoms and I believe canonical, so it fits that someone is doing it.

The elf is absolutely going to be a handful.... The whole group is, I can see it now! I've made Rudabeh a bit trope savvy because Finn was her mentor, so she'll be wary of the group to say the least.


You've been overshadowed.

Just to be clear, I don't plan on using all of Kingmaker as canon here. Just the parts I want.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

Hehehe so I have... Oh well. Now when everyone is distracted I can look at that note! It's been bothering me for days.

Makes sense to me. I just really like the inclusion of it, nice work.


Credit goes to my Co-GM. I'll pass along the compliment.

So what do you think of this solo gaming experience? I know it is early, but I am curious what you think.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

It's great! There can be much more focus on the characters instead of trying to rush things along as quickly as possible to avoid getting bogged down. On that note, as fun as group dynamics can be, it's nice not having to wait on people to make decisions so a scene can move forward.

I also greatly enjoy the rapport we have, thank you for asking my opinion on various matters. I will always answer truthfully and I hope you do the same.


It isn't for everyone. I've one or two people try these games but never really get into it. Some people really like the teamwork aspect and it can be difficult to do a good 'planning' scene with one person.

But personally I find the advantages vastly outweigh the downsides.

I am just glad you are more willing to share in OOC then most players. It is like pulling teeth with some of my other players.

Before you look what do you (and Rudabeh) think is in the note? I'm curious.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

That seems so bizarre to me that someone couldn't get into it, but if teamwork and group dynamics is their thing then yeah it would be hard to get into.

I also find it odd someone wouldn't share OOC, but I guess everyone has their reservations. I've been on the internet and doing PbP since I was a kid so talking to people through text just comes naturally I guess.

As for the note, hmmm. I think it's either a warning about some greater plot that's going to happen in Pitax or it has information about a Pact/Veleda contact hidden amongst Irovetti retainers. I wouldn't put it past Veleda to have "observers" stationed in every pact country.

Rudabeh thinks it's some kind of invitation to be bribed or otherwise affect the outcome of the upcoming tournament.


Very diplomatically done.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

That could have gone worse. Irovetti is very clever, nicely done.

Okay can't stand it anymore, I need to know if the note is related! Well that and it's time to raid the banquet. I hope there's some owlbear left...


I'm glad he is coming across as clever. It is hard to RP a character smarter then you but I try!

Finally, the note is revealed!


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

It is very hard indeed, I struggle with that all the time.

Yes, the note! Phew glad I know what's in it now. Wasn't expecting an arbitration request! Sweet. After the interaction with Toski I thought it might be from her.

I hope you don't mind me taking some liberties with Rudabeh's knowledge of teleportaion magic. I assume because she's expected to track down those that abuse it, she would have to know a little bit about how it actually works.


Sorry the note was disappointing.


LN Female Undine (Outsider (Native) and Aquatic (Amphibious)) Paladin of Alseta (lvl 7) | HP: 56/56 | AC: 22 (12 Tch 21 Ff) | CMB: +10 CMD: 22 | F: +11 R: +7 W: +9 | Init: +5 | ACP: -5 | Perc: +10, SM: +10 | Speed 20ft (walk/swim) | Darkvision 60 ft | Divine Bond: 1/1 | Smite Chaos 2/3 | Lay on Hands: 6/6 |Active conditions:

Oh, I wasn't disappointed, Rudabeh was. She thought there was some strange conspiracy afoot with Toski. The note being from Zadie makes perfect sense, especially after his comments.
