Generally, but intense in spots. We had originally planned a two-week camping trip (to the Pennsic War, for those of you who are familiar with SCA), but then had to take a side trip to Colorado for family matters the middle weekend. The only convenient flights out of Pittsburgh (the closest airport) were to Denver, but we were meeting everyone in Durango, on the other side of the state. There was some driving involved. I would have preferred to fly into Albuquerque and drive from there, but no such luck.

Glad you made it safely! We were out there last summer and the drive between Denver and Durango is a little hair-raising.

Oh, yeah. Found a nice little cafe in Fairplay, though, so there was that.

Nia, what are your traits?

Cool.

I was tied up all day yesterday with a job interview--my boss resigned a while ago, and I applied to replace him. I should find out whether I got the job by the end of the month.

Thanks!

A combination of computer problems and cooking kept me from updating this evening. I'll try to get something up tomorrow.

No problem, Carbide.


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

I have a bunch of people over right now, and will be unlikely to be able to post until tomorrow evening.

Waiting on the party to act.

Sorry, I've been sick for like a week. I should be back to normal posting now.


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

I've had a busy week with work, and will be traveling this weekend. I'll try to get a post up later today.

I wasn't able to get onto my computer this evening, but will try to get a post up tomorrow.

Unfortunately, that was basically Nia's only trick. Her only other alchemical weapon is alchemist's fire, which won't do a thing to a quasit. We might need to leave this thing here and come back with cold iron arrows/bolts so we can shoot it down.

I wonder if we could somehow secure the door from the other side and trap it in here.

DM, since the book probably doesn't say, can we say the doors into the quasit room open outward into the hallway instead of inward into the room? That way they could be spiked to stay closed.

Nia doesn't have pitons, but maybe we could use torches to jam up the door hinges? Or Nia could Craft some alchemical cement (DC 15, 50 SP); with a minute to prep she can even throw in Crafter's Fortune. I'll just do a check real quick.

Craft:Alchemy+Crafter's Fortune+Inspiration, DC 15: 1d20 + 10 + 5 + 1d6 ⇒ (19) + 10 + 5 + (5) = 39

So that's... 585sp, or ~11.5 times the SP cost. So it would take her (24 hrs x 7 days /11.5) 14-ish hours to craft? Great rolls, but too long to hang out and make right here. Ugh.

Would jamming torches in the hinges work to jam the doors shut for like a day, DM?


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

You could certainly try.

Great DM answer, thanks. ;P

Oh wait! I can add 10 to the crafting DC to accelerate crafting. DC 25 x check result of 39 is... 975sp. That's 19.5x the SP value, so crafting time could be around 8.6 hours instead of 14-ish. That's definitely more manageable, but jamming the hinges with sticks/torches is instant.

Anyway, let's see how this next round of combat goes.

I went through the threads to see if I could figure out what kind of treasure we're working with. This is what I found:

50gp from Aldern Foxglove
ranseur
MW ranseur-garrick
ranseur x2
silver dagger-nia
magic longsword (unidentified)
MW handaxe-garrick
ragged book (faint aura, holy book of Lamashtu)-nia
Burning Hands scroll (3rd level)-vidar
a bottle that looks like it's made to hold wine (has a label)
Wand of Shocking Grasp (a short length of twisted iron rod with a forked tip)-vidar


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Just a reminder that Tsuto mentioned a quasit in his diary.


Female Human Swashbuckler (Inspired Blade/Noble Fencer) 1/Investigator (Empiricist) 1 [HP: 15/18 | AC:18 | T:12 | FF:16 | CMB:+1 | CMD:13 | Fort:+2 | Ref:+6 | Will:+2 | Init:+2 | Perc:+5/+7 in the dark (Darkvision)| Spd 30]

As the Heroes of Sandpoint, do we get a better deal than 50% sale value (or might we get a discount on purchases)?

With 50% sale prices right now we're looking at:

50gp
3 ranseurs = 15gp
MW ranseur = 155gp
magic longsword (assuming +1) = 657.5gp

And maybe the wine's worth something?

So 877.5gp, plus the wine if it's worth anything.

Um, a +1 longsword would be 2,315 -- so half is 1,157.5.


Female Human Swashbuckler (Inspired Blade/Noble Fencer) 1/Investigator (Empiricist) 1 [HP: 15/18 | AC:18 | T:12 | FF:16 | CMB:+1 | CMD:13 | Fort:+2 | Ref:+6 | Will:+2 | Init:+2 | Perc:+5/+7 in the dark (Darkvision)| Spd 30]

Oh, right! I was thinking of enchanting cost, not purchase cost. Thanks, Garrick. Even better.

Is everybody cool selling the longsword and MW ranseur along with the other stuff?

Could we buy the Garrick and Nia MW versions of their melee weapons as long as we're here?

Or MW tools, if people don't mind Nia spending group money?

I'm fine with improving the group's capabilities. I'm not terribly gear dependent.


Female Human Swashbuckler (Inspired Blade/Noble Fencer) 1/Investigator (Empiricist) 1 [HP: 15/18 | AC:18 | T:12 | FF:16 | CMB:+1 | CMD:13 | Fort:+2 | Ref:+6 | Will:+2 | Init:+2 | Perc:+5/+7 in the dark (Darkvision)| Spd 30]

OK, it looks like our group gold after selling everything from the catacombs is 1377.5gp.

So far our proposed purchases are:
Net- 20gp,
Light xbow- 35gp,
40 cold iron bolts- 8gp
=63gp

If she has MW weapons for Garrick and Nia, that's:
-MW rapier- 320gp (minus sale price of current weapon, 10gp)
-MW battleaxe (I doubt she has a dwarven waraxe for sale)- 310gp (minus sale price of current weapon, 5gp)

That leaves us at 699.5gp. It doesn't look like she has cold iron throwing axes, but for alternative ranged options Garrick could also buy a xbow and bolts?

Nia would like MW thieves' tools, but we can wait to see what kind of alchemical or magical items are for sale that we might want to buy first and see if we have the cash left.

Rather than buying a new battle axe, might be worth seeing if we could find someone to cast Masterwork Transformation on the waraxe.

Also, an alchemist might have weapon blanch.

In terms of ranged - a crossbow would probably be the best idea, given how expensive a bow built for his strength would be.

Weapon blanch is a good idea. If the local stores don't have what we want, once we get some time Nia can sit down and craft some alchemical items.

Recalculating for 60% sale prices:
50gp
3 ranseurs = 18gp
MW ranseur = 186gp
magic longsword (assuming +1) = 1389gp
Nia's rapier = 12gp
Garrick's dwarven waraxe = 18gp
=1673gp (+wine, when we sell it)

-20 Net
-35 light xbow
-50 heavy xbow
-12 60 cold iron bolts (30 each should be sufficient?)
-320 MW rapier
-330 MW dwarven waraxe

=906gp remaining

Garrick and Ilryan could go both upgrade to Chainmail for 120gp (150-sell price of scale mail), too.


Female Human Swashbuckler (Inspired Blade/Noble Fencer) 1/Investigator (Empiricist) 1 [HP: 15/18 | AC:18 | T:12 | FF:16 | CMB:+1 | CMD:13 | Fort:+2 | Ref:+6 | Will:+2 | Init:+2 | Perc:+5/+7 in the dark (Darkvision)| Spd 30]

We need to remember Savah owes us 606gp.

We now have 300gp for further purchases.

Garrick, do you want to carry the net?

Not proficient, and not particularly dextrous -- but I can try. ;)

Do any classes get Net proficiency? Nia can carry it if Garrick doesn't want to, I just wanted to check since it was your idea.

No, it's exotic. Some races get it as an option, and some archetypes. Only takes a touch attack, though, so it's not impossible to land with a decent ranged attack bonus.

That's what I was thinking - basically, whomever has the dex to throw it. ;)

OK, cool. Nia will hold on to it, then.
