I managed to finally load the subforum, so I have the thread started.

The Meridian Parallel - Cursebreakers

Please check in over there when you can, and let's move all discussion fkr that game there so I can stop cluttering Rando's space. I'll have setting information up within a few days.

For the record, I tried and had some weirdness as well. Glad you got it to work.

Cut'n'paste for all my games.

Thursday, 18 July, in the wee hours of the morning, I get on an airplane and leave for the international Boy Scout World Jamboree. I'll be 1 of the roughly 120 people working on JUST the archery ranges, helping the attendees have some fun.

I will have only my phone for electronic access, but AT&T has wired the dickens out of the facility, and a signal should never be my problem. Power on the other hand . . .. There will be a limited number of places to plug things in (compared to the tens of thousands of attendees) and no safe place to plug something in and walk away from it, which means time spent charging is time spent NOT doing any of the things people are there to do.

I am going to try to check in and cover anything I should cover, but I don't know for sure how well it is going to go.

I won't be home again until 3 August.

Actually, part of the reason I've been less responsive the past little bit is I've been getting ready to go. Still have a lot to do, honestly.

If you need to bot me to keep the story moving, BOT ME.

(Okay, so I made it Sunday night instead of Wednesday night.)


Male Human (Polish Jew/Native American/Irish) Techie 5/Martial Artist 2

Ah, thanks, that had slipped my mind.


I’m also heading out tomorrow. See you folks on the 23rd.

"Life is what happens while you are making other plans."

On my arrival day at the World Scout Jamboree, I got caught in a DELUGE of rain. My phone refused to charge because of water detected in the charging port. It has been drained of power sitting in a ziploc bag of rice for a couple of weeks, and STILL reports water in the charging port.

I'll find out later how bad off my phone really is. It can charge through induction, at the worst. Just didn't have any induction chargers at the Jamboree!

Posting this to my games, and I will come back later today and try ot catch up through them.

Thank you for your understanding!

Oh, and the group of 16 staffers (including me) running the 30-target 10m static archery range had people step up to the Shooting Line and throw arrows downrange almost 10,000 times (for 50,000 arrows), including 1 blind archer, 1 wheel-chair bound archer that we held up so she could hoot standing like everyone else, and 1 one-armed archer.

Yeah, my mobile...melted, we think. All we know is that it was on a day when the UK hit 30 degrees celsius (100 Fahrenheit) my phone worked in the restraunt with my wife, then two minutes later it had powered down and wouldn't turn on despite having 90% power when I checked. ot great, but even worse for my mobile provider - I only had two weeks until it's paid off and now they have to give me a new one. Hah.

The archery sounds like a blast, though! I'm a terrible shot with a bow, but I do have decent aim with a crossbow.

Major database crash at work. I'm going to be preoccupied for a couple of days. I'd say check back Thursday at earliest.

Ouch. That sounds like a bad thing, from professional opinion as an archaeologist.

Finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'll try to post something tonight if I don't pass out from the almost-all-nighter last night.

No worries, Boss... Take care of business!

Sharlavaka,

Check out what happened after the whopping 10!

Hates us all...

It knows only rage.

Okay, friday has passed, still have a job. though...at this point I might want a different one. Talk about a bad week. Server went down 4 times, lost an entire day's data, and the boss accused me of using too little RAM (even though the RAM on the server isn't maxed out and the idiot telling him that didn't understand basic technical terms).

Ahh, you speak words we could discuss for hours... another time. Where are you located by the way?


Male Human (Polish Jew/Native American/Irish) Techie 5/Martial Artist 2

St Louis, Missouri metro area.

Work in NYC, but live a bit North!


Male Human (Polish Jew/Native American/Irish) Techie 5/Martial Artist 2

Whereabouts? NYC is one of my favorite cities. I'd love to live there, but cost of living in St Louis is so cushy it's hard to give up. Plus, I'm getting old, and it's warmer here.


Human Mechanic (Data Jockey) 6 | SP 48/48 HP 40/40 RP 7/7 | EAC 20 KAC 20 CMAC 28 | F +8 R +9 W +3

There is a Newburgh Beacon area about 65 miles North, along the Hudson River.

I'm in Texas. Yee haw.

(Please save me from this heat I'm Appalacian at heart)


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Ah, a side point Rando, aren't the Azlanti from Gollorian, not the other way around?


Vesk Soldier (Guard) 6 | SP: 54/54; HP: 47/47; RP: 7/7 | EAC: 23; KAC; 27 | Fort: +7, Ref: +6, Will: +5 | CMAC: 31 | Init: +4 | Perception: +9; LowLight, Darkvision |

I'm British. And therefore best.

And yeah, normally the backstory is the Azlant fled from Golarion during Starfall and ended up creating a fairly horrible space empire. But Rando's backstory might be different.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

My longtime girlfriend is English herself actually. Heard y'all had a bad heatwave recently. Hadn't heard her complain about the weather for a few days at least, so I assume it's cooled down somewhat.


Vesk Soldier (Guard) 6 | SP: 54/54; HP: 47/47; RP: 7/7 | EAC: 23; KAC; 27 | Fort: +7, Ref: +6, Will: +5 | CMAC: 31 | Init: +4 | Perception: +9; LowLight, Darkvision |

Yeah, it's a lot cooler than it was (see phone melting temperatures) although still warmer than I'd like someday. I'm from Northumberland, which as the name hints at, is in the very North of England (there are Scots more Southern than me) and therefore I'm not used to this whole Murderous Daystar crap. When the sun came out back home it created a seafret, and the fogbank would cover town. I always assumed the sky was simply slate gray until I left for University.

...also, slightly ironically, my wife is American.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Hahah, fancy that. Culture exchanges all around.

Overcast is honestly my favorite type of weather. Not too bright, not too wet with rain, just in the perfect range for me.


Vesk Soldier (Guard) 6 | SP: 54/54; HP: 47/47; RP: 7/7 | EAC: 23; KAC; 27 | Fort: +7, Ref: +6, Will: +5 | CMAC: 31 | Init: +4 | Perception: +9; LowLight, Darkvision |

That's how my wife likes it. I say I like moderate weather, but I'm told my idea of moderate is a bit off - most people don't consider snow to be t-shirt weather.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Hey, I'm from Pennsylvania. Of course it's T-Shirt weather.

You are correct; I was confusing them with an ethnicity from OD&D's Mystara setting. In that setting there was a human subrace that crashed on the world; I just assumed Azlanti were similar.

EDIT: The Aphatians!

Nope. Go with the standard setting. It's not super-relevant to the campaign either way.


Male Human (Polish Jew/Native American/Irish) Techie 5/Martial Artist 2

I'm not native to St Louis, but rather Northern Illinois; our summers here are about 10 degrees (f) hotter than I'm used to on average, and for more days. That said, it hardly snows here at all anymore, so our winters tend to be much milder. The older I get, the more I appreciate the mild winters.

Can they teleport? What would I even roll to know if they could or couldn't?


Male Human (Polish Jew/Native American/Irish) Techie 5/Martial Artist 2

Esh has no evidence to suggest teleporting Azlanti ships. Certainly the ones faced so far did not.


Female Android Operative (Outlaw) 6 | SP: 42/42; HP: 40/40; RP: 9/9 | EAC: 21; KAC: 23 | Fort: +3, Ref: +11, Will: +6 | CMAC: 31 | Init: +8 | Perception:+12; LowLight, Darkvision

Have we determined that our energy weapons harm the beast when Azlanti bullets didn't? New settlers would need to know that.


Male Human (Polish Jew/Native American/Irish) Techie 5/Martial Artist 2

No, you have not determined that. It's hard to say whether the Azlanti bullets hurt the creature; it simply killed them very quickly. It could well have been somewhat injured and just regenerated, as you know it does from your bleed attack.
