Discuss.

Liberty's Edge

Greetings!

Between your buddy and Simon, it sounds like this is going to be a game of fresh characters. I can work with that.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Howdy all - very glad to have you here.

What tier would you guys prefer to play? I have a friend, new to PbP, who I've invited to join us. He could play a level 1 he's made, if you all are okay with playing low-tier. Alternatively, I think there was some interest in playing 4-5 when we discussed this game earlier, so I can ask if he'd play a pregen in that case.

Preferences?

Liberty's Edge

Who else did you invite?


I'd prefer to play 4-5, but I guess I might be able to make another fresh PC if that's the consensus.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Players I'm expecting at this point are: Feral, Oladon, Amazing Red, and Simeon (Simon, my son).

The friend I've invited is a guy who used to DM for me in college and grad school (he'd give you a run for your money in the Hope-Crushing Department, Feral). He lives in NYC, studied creative writing and wanted to be a sci-fi novelist but it didn't come to pass - so now the poor soul works in tech, like some others I know.

He played Pathfinder in its earliest days, but hasn't in a while, and has not played PbP before. But he's a quick study and a good writer.

Liberty's Edge

Wait Oladon's here? Pfft. I quit!


Feral's quitting? I quit too!


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Well, she wasn't here and then you had to go mention her...'ware names, for they have power!


I posted before Feral mentioned me, Mister DM.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

I'm very disappointed that my new-found powers as DM don't include changing the time-stamp on player posts. Very disappointed indeed.

See how disappointed my wee green avatar is over there?

Also - no more editing posts for clarity! DM fiat!


All I hear is *whine whine whine*.


Male Human Suel Arcane Duelist 1

I have a level 2 brawlslinger, a level 2 monk, or a level 3 archer slayer.


Human Bard 3

I have a level 4 summoner and a level 3 fighter


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Lhdv has indicated he's good with playing a pregen, so let's plan to go level 4-5, if that's okay with everyone and Red doesn't mind playing up.

Given that, what classes will y'all be playing? Minor spoiler: this takes place in a library, so you might consider vaguely library-like skills in picking the character you'll play.

Lhdv - any thoughts on what you'll play? Also - this is a very helpful, rules-savvy group we're playing with (with the occasional tendency towards snark, so you'll fit right in...), so if you've got questions as you dive back into Pathfinder, this is a good place to ask them.

If you need help setting up an alias (like my green DM Khel one here, in order to be able to post in character), let me know, though I expect you'll figure it out.

I'll be bringing Zirty (bard)!


I'll figure out the whole alias thing this weekend, I thought yours was a self portrait... I'd like to play the Investigator pregen - seems like it will work in a library setting. And I have no idea what you mean about me being snarky.

Dark Archive

Grimspawn Arcanist 3 - HP: 20/20 - AC 14/T:14/FF:10 - Perception +1 Fort +3, Reflex +6, Will +3

Sounds like I'll be playing Darius then.

That's okay, they don't either.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

What is Darius, in terms of class and level? I don't believe I've met him.

Dark Archive

Grimspawn Arcanist 3 - HP: 20/20 - AC 14/T:14/FF:10 - Perception +1 Fort +3, Reflex +6, Will +3

He's a level 3 arcanist.

Human Slayer 9 - HP: 60/98 - AC 24 T:17 FF:18 - Perception +23(Trapspotter +27) Fort +12, Reflex +15, Will +8 (+2 vs Fear, +1 vs ongoing effects)

Going with Rayne.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Okay, so here's what we've got:

Darius - Arcanist 3
Rayne - Slayer 3
Zirt - Bard 4
Lhdv - Investigator 4 (you can use the pregen name or call him something else)
Rakshara - Summoner 4

I'll work on maps and such, since we can't actually start until Nov 1.

So here's the investigator - Conundrum of Pregenia - more detail to come.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Would you guys mind doing a little character intro when you post? Since this scenario is a lot less combat-driven than most, it'll make it more interesting to have characters defined a bit.

Conundrum - in the gameplay thread, if you're referencing rules, making comments or otherwise saying something other than narrating character action or character speech, it's usually done in out of character format. If you look at the "How to format your text" spoiler below it'll tell you the codes to do that.

And since you took 10 and succeeded at both checks, you can have your character tell the others what he's noticed, or ask the Venture-Captain about it, or whatever you feel like.

OK - thanks. Edited the text!

I'm working on a post to respond to Conundrum's questions, I'll try to avoid having your venture-captain comment on your slackiness.

Darius - what faction are you?

I'm guessing I can't bring Jadrek the friendly grizzly bear, huh.


Poor Jadrek.

Human Investigator 4 - HP: 21/31 - AC 16/T:11/FF:15 - Perception +8 Fort +3, Reflex +6, Will +6 - Inspiration 5/9

If you get him a library card they have to let him in...


How about a disguise!

Find him a nice scarf and nobody would be able to tell who he is.

Or a hat.

Is this him?

Go to Jadrek picture.


Who's that? All I see is a gentleman with a scarf and hat.

Ooh, that could work... I'm good at disguising!

Maybe I can convince them he's my service bear?


| DM | Absalom Initiation

You can try to talk your way in with your nice bearzy-wearzy, but if it doesn't work out, I'm not sure where you'll park him as you go about your mission. Might be best to leave him at the bait shop.

I'm going to assume no shopping is happening - if you think of something you want to add before we're in the library proper, let me know you're buying it.

Mister Jadrek is very good at staying hidden when I ask him to do so.


Darius needs to juggle his cantrips but he's otherwise good to go.

Seems perfect for this scenario.

Well, if you're trying to copy a bunch of documents faithfully in a short time, I can see how that would come in handy. But you guys are going to a concert, right?

Totally. Jadrek's gonna rock out.


[ooc]Can Conundrum recheck and use an inspiration check or take 20?

-Posted with Wayfinder


| DM | Absalom Initiation

You can re-check, I suppose, since it could just mean you tried looking at it from another angle. Taking 20 might not be the best way to start a race against the clock, since it takes a while.

As an aside, you don't really need to post in OOC here, since the discussion thread is all OOC.


Thanks.. Having a small issue with wayfinder not seeing my conundrum alias.

-Posted with Wayfinder


| DM | Absalom Initiation

This is a situation where you could Aid each other as well, as you help others figure out bits of the visual trick.

I've heard of Wayfinder issues like that, but I don't use it, not sure what the fix is. It's something to do with not letting you post from your primary alias, or only letting you do that, or something.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

FYI - as most of you know, I'll be at a local con starting tonight (with Darius and Rakshara) through the weekend, so my posting will be minimal to nonexistent for that time.
