Ok so I think this is what I should be looking for:

Celestial Armor
Headband of the Ninjitsu Gives insight bonuses to attack rolls on sneak attacks, and allows me to sneak attack creatures with concealment (even total concealment)
Belt of Dex, mine is only at a +2 so I can probably stand to upgrade it
Cloak of Resistance, mine is only at +2 so I can upgrade as well
Xorn Robe
Unfettered Shirt
Trapspringer Gloves
Cap of the Free Thinker

I am also wanting to pick up some wands with arcane spells, namely invisibility, perhaps reduce person and fly as well.

Can you let me know the availability of such items?

Looks like I never picked my 8th level spell! This is gonna be tough.

I've invited another player to pick up the bard spot in this game. Most of you will already know the character, its Aggrah in my swamp campaign.

----

I'm still a few days away from getting this thing going again. Its taken me some time to find a plausible path to the next shrine level. essentially you'll have to work you way there.

I also have to boost the challenge level to keep this interesting for everyone.

Might as well Dhalsim the crap out of Kalim, then, hey. So that's 20k some to spend elsewhere ...


Evil GM

Rappan Athuk was updated in 2012 well before many of the splat books.

I know it gets exciting to play bada$$ high level characters but remember it gets complicated for me to track and create challenging encounters. Having ultra powerful characters that insta-kill everything, while being virtual impossible to hit themselves, makes it difficult for me to keep my sanity.

Awesome, thanks baldwin.

To be clear, when you say "not available in town" as opposed to "no", what's the difference?

Also, what is the verdict on what kind of dex belts are available? I may even go with a dex/con belt.

Dex or a dex/con belt up to a +4.

Let me know if there is something else you have in mind.

No real distinction. This is still a small town/trading caravan stop. Here's the stats that are under the campaign tab.

Fentonville - Small Town, Population 727, base value 3,000*, Purchase limit 14,000*. *Although it's a small town on the coast road, with access to Lake Encarthan. It hosts numerous caravans and has increase wealth due to it's strategic position. It sits on some rolling hills near the border of Lastwall. This is DM created settlement. **There is a probability that speciality items can be acquired or made with ample notice.

If you survive you may return to town. In game time you will be leaving in the very near future.

The group needs knowledge skills and that will be my primary focus with my skill ranks.

Are there any other skills the party needs?

Knowledge skills and spellcraft are our weakest links.

Melee combat and overall spellcasting is our strength.

Standard Bard buffs (inspire courage, heroism, haste) will go greatly towards increasing our killing power. Especially if I summon a bunch of smaller critters and they get boosted.

NB: many of the areas we've been in have been blocked for summoning/teleporting, so keep that in mind for spell selection.

This is true and will remain the case. there are a lot of summoning, scrying, and teleporting restriction written in the book. Many are alignment based since this is a dungeon devoted to Orcus (CE).


Evil GM

I think Grung was on a camping trip this week but I know he posted in the game thread a few weeks ago to keep it active.

So far I have the following checking in:

new fodder Bellar
Karnog
Duncan
Desmond
Kalim

Those who have not officially checked in:

Grung
Nym (he's in my other game and he knows about it)

Am I missing anyone?

I'm still reviewing the next section, revamping encounters, and coming up with new and glorious ways to bring about the party's destruction. That being said be on the lookout for the posting to begin until then start up some banter in game thread.

Everyone should make sure they review or get acquainted with the material under the Campaign Info tab. I would be remiss if I didn't remind everyone to look under the "WARNING" spoiler.


Male Human Unchained Rogue 16 AC 35/23/25 Perc +21 (+6 vs traps) Saves 11/21/10 HP 142/142

Sounds good!

baldwin, may I suggest, if it seems feasible within your current plans, that we attempt to make it to town first? In that case, you could finish your work on the next section while we go about our shopping.

rerolling 1's: 1d8 ⇒ 2

hp=125

The bulk of the character is done pending Baldwin's approval.

Unfortunately, Bellar is not going to be any good at spellcraft with a 10 int. So that's still going to be up to Kalim. However, Kalim will be boosted by inspire competence and the Gallant Inspiration spell when necessary.

He will be decent at UMD so with some healing scrolls will be able to save Karnog with a timely Breath of Life or Heal as I imagine Duncan will be too busy in combat. Nothing makes for a TPK like the lone cleric going down at the beginning of an encounter.

Knowledge skills are handled

and with a good init everyone can expect combat to start off with the standard Bard buffs
Haste
Inspire Courage +5
Banner/Flagbearer +2

@Bellar(and everyone) In my profile, there is a link to a gear spreadsheet.

There are potions and a few scrolls in there, see if anything is crucially needed, and let me know.

You are in town. That's why I was reviewing what items were available.


Male Human Unchained Rogue 16 AC 35/23/25 Perc +21 (+6 vs traps) Saves 11/21/10 HP 142/142

Ah good, I believe I was confused earlier and thought we would still need to fight our way back.

Karnog, is everything with loot updated and divided up yet? It's been quite a while and I'm not sure how accurate my sheet is.


Evil GM

Bellar:

I'll begin with you in Featherton's Guides - Cartographer shop, guides and merchant. Owned by the mayor Walter Featherton, a gnome. I'm not quite ready to begin that introduction.

----
The others:

You've been in town a day or two since the last adventure. You've rested and healed up. You were able to sell gear and purchase the items we've previously discussed.

Eventually some of you all will need to go to the cartography shop to try to figure out a path forward.

After donating my shares, Grung gave me 5k which I'll hang onto for now.

Other than that I'm ready to go.

Karnog, If you didn't sell the starmetal, let's try to make 2x Impervious Starmetal Shortswords for Desmond, Subject to Baldwin's approval.

Desmond will have to pay the cost but between us we should have the skill checks.

He's really the only char that would benefit (since the rest of the melee'rs hit enough already).

**Plus I'm sure Baldwin would have fun turning (dominating) our low will Rogue with metal ignoring weapons against us.**

Also, did you sell the adamantine? Surely you or Grung would like some DR/-??

Please use the Healing fund share for a wand of Lessor Restoration.

Desmond, please buy yourself a wand of Protection from evil.
Your UMD should be an auto success for this and pop it before you ever open a door.

Post Edit- Damn website too took long to refresh

Unless, Baldwin would this enchantment be available?
Inheritor's light

Look here:

PFS Legal Inheritor's Light
Source Inner Sea Gods pg. 256
Aura faint conjuration and transmutation CL 3rd
Slot none; [/b]Price 6,555 gp[/b]; Weight 4 lbs.
Description
This +1 longsword sheds light as a torch and when drawn emits a shining starburst around the hilt, similar to Iomedae’s holy symbol. Any cure spells or lay on hands effects used to heal the wielder of this blade heal an additional 1 point of damage per die, up to the effect’s normal maximum healing amount. Once per day, the wielder can use inheritor’s smite.
Construction
Requirements Craft Magic Arms and Armor, cure light wounds, inheritor's smite; Price 3,435 gp

What are my intentions?
The Crafting Price is Fixed rather than Item cost dependent. so $3435 if self crafting and double if paying for it. Duncan can provide the spells.
Obviously I'm keen on this since the effect is +1 per die whenever I am subject to a Healing or LOH (so 5d6+5 rather than 5d6 currently when I swift LOH)
plus It grants Inheritors Smite 1/day which is an Immediate action Bullrush with +5 to the attempt.

EDIT: And can someone PLEASE tell me why the Hell Inquisitors get Litany of Righteousness (when they don't have an Aura) but cleric's and warpriest's don't?

Spell Loadout for level16
0 (DC15)- Create Water, Detect Magic, Read Magic, Stabilise, Light
1- (DC16) Air Bubble, Command, Murderous Command, Divine Favor, Liberating Command, Wrath, Face of the devourer
2- (DC-17)Surmount Affliction, Lesser Restoration, Spear of Purity, Defending Bone, Light Prison, Resist Energy
3- (DC-18)Remove Curse, Searing Light, Channel Vigor, Invisibility Purge, Resist Energy Communal, Deadly Juggernaut
4- (DC-19) Greater Magic Weapon (Precast on Longsword), Deathward, GTR Stunning Barrier, Good Hope, Crusaders Edge
5- (DC20)Righteous Might x2, Angelic Aspect, Cleanse
6- (DC21) Chains of Light

Tactics- Since Iomedaen Warpriests and Cleric can cast GOOD HOPE as a 4th level Ref, Inner Sea Gods, P83 spell I'm gonna prep it. +2 to everything for 18mins for whole party is awesome.
Karnog has blessing of Fervour covered.
Bellar has Haste.

Chains of Light is the one Ref save or do nothing spell clerics get that is actually great at this level so hopefully that can pindown a BBEG


Evil GM

We haven't crafted items previously and I'd prefer not to start. If you start creating gear for half cost and adding special abilities it's just going to break the adventure.

Regarding the starmetal being smelted into alternate weapons we previously mentioned not going that route.

Just because something is in a book or PFS legal doesn't mean it's permitted in this game. Remember this adventure was created years before most of the splat material currently being used by the characters. Several characters can easily walk through the vast majority of the written dungeon levels (at least until you get to the BBEG on each level). That means I spend a tremendous amount of time rebalancing battles to keep it interesting and I'd prefer not to have more work than is necessary.

Ok So No go on the starmetal.

What about the other 2 things?

Would the inheritor's Light enchant I spoiler-ed before be allowed if Duncan pays the full price to add it to his current LS? $6,655

Is Good Hope Allowed for Imoedaen Clerics/Warpriest?

If not I'll just prep Blessing of Fervour (since it's also awesome) and ask Bellar to consider learning it later.

Cheers.

Can you, or anyone else, explain how that sword only costs 6555?

It's a +1 weapon with light (I know a % of magic weapons glow) and two special abilities: Smiting and CLW. Granted the smiting is limited daily use and the cure bonus is personal. Even with the limitations it's a weapon between 8315 and 18,315 value. Am I missing something?


Male Human Ranger 1

I am guessing because the rider enchant is considered not worth an actual +1 cost?

I mean there is no Inheritors Smite weapon ability listed (probably because it's in a Splat book), but certain additions to weapons, such as Impervious, have a fixed price rather than a +1 or +2 listing.

I am guessing the light is a play on the 30% random light emission from the Players Guide. Happy to forgo that part as Duncan has darkvision and can cast light anyway.

The other abilities some might question the value.

The "Smite" ability is really just a 1/day +4 Bullrush attempt, layered on an attack. There is zero bonus damage in the spells description
The the CLW is also a weaker power (+1 per die)

There is a feat that actually grants +2 per die that Paladins LOVE. Forget the name....

Here is the link for your reference.
Linky

Since the ability description is not called out seperately I thought it would be a fixed price item, otherwise the listing should read Price: +1 enchant

I don't want another sword.
I wanted to add the ability to my gutbuster sword.

Your call on the price, IF you deem it available.
I can sell my boots of spider climb and some other stuff.

If you think it's overpowered, I'm cool with that and I'll drop it.


Male Human Unchained Rogue 16 AC 35/23/25 Perc +21 (+6 vs traps) Saves 11/21/10 HP 142/142

Thanks Karnog. I definitely remember adding that section of loot to Desmond's sheet, so I believe that is correct for his current resources.

Oh baldwin, another item I would be interested in, a cracked pearly white spindle ioun stone. Gives very slow regeneration. Let me know about availability please. Also the availability of a wand or protection from evil.

Current Money: 75813gp

Purchases
Celestial Armor (plus shadow enchantment): 26150gp
Unfettered Shirt: 10000gp
Wand of Invisibility (9 charges): 810gp
Wand of Reduce Person (14 charges): 210gp
Wand of Fly (12 charges): 2700gp
Cloak of Resistance Upgrade to +4: 12000gp
Belt of Dexterity Upgrade to +4: 12000gp
+1 Adamantium Shortsword Upgrade to +2 Menacing: 16000gp

Sells (all sold for 1/2 price)
+2 Shadow Studded Leather: 3962gp
Quick Runner's Shirt: 500gp
+1 Menacing Frost Shortsword: 4155gp

Final Money: 4560gp

I've streamlined my weapons to be simpler, they're both +2 so the math should be easier to keep track off, but don't worry I still have that fat menacing bonus and in addition I'll be using that adamantium shortsword on a regular basis.

Other than that, Desmond has picked up a few new magical tricks, but otherwise it's just a numbers adjustment. AC went up by 5 which is pretty sweet, that armor is really nice.
