RotRL aka "The Heroes of Sandpoint"

Game Master Hunger

Something sinister is happening in Sandpoint and only our heroes can stop it. See what happens when a group loses DM after DM and yet the heroes forge on!

Wasnt that i wanted you to have more mouths....just most the time it seems he does...


AC 13/11/11 | 2/5/6 | HP 44 | Init +2, Percep. +10 CMD 13 Slots: | 1st-8 2nd-7 3rd-4 | Arcane Bolt 9/day

I could probably make him *think* he has more mouths. That might be funny!

With Vidar, I do not think it is the number of mouthes, but rather the size that is of concern.


AC 13/11/11 | 2/5/6 | HP 44 | Init +2, Percep. +10 CMD 13 Slots: | 1st-8 2nd-7 3rd-4 | Arcane Bolt 9/day

I could probably help with that too.

Hey, ganging up in Vidar now eh? Hey, Camillo, help me out here!


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 3/UC Rogue 4 | AC 22/14/18 (uncanny dodge), hp 42/46; 10/10 Bardic; Effect: None

Yeah, what happened to picking on that lush of an avian familiar? (Is that helpful?)


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/4 - Paladin/2 [HP 61/61; AC27,T13,FF26; F+12,R+7,W+11; Per+7; Init +1(roll twice)]

Forgot about the bird. See Kithian, we already effectively have a gibbering mouther.


Male Half Orc Barbarian 5/ Oracle 1/ RP 1, Perception +7, Darkvision, Fort +8/ Ref +1/ Will +3, Init +4, AC 18, HP :76

So I was right!


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 2

With friends like these...
DOOMBOLTTOTHEFACE!


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 3/UC Rogue 4 | AC 22/14/18 (uncanny dodge), hp 42/46; 10/10 Bardic; Effect: None

Camillo grins and waves off the fuming of the mage. Turning to the bemused elven ranger, he says, "Shalelu, this is not pretty. Best you and I step away for a bit while they work this out. Oh, no, I'm sworn to Ameiko. And Vidar is a friend, so no, my intentions are strictly honorable. I'm really curious what your new feline friend can tell us about the idiot ogre and where her ranger friend was last seen.

Sayniek looks over at Cam:
Idiot ogre? Vidar and Kithian aren't that big.


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 2

"You all have to sleep at some point..."


AC 13/11/11 | 2/5/6 | HP 44 | Init +2, Percep. +10 CMD 13 Slots: | 1st-8 2nd-7 3rd-4 | Arcane Bolt 9/day

No I don't... *Impish grin*


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 2

Vidar smiles creepily.
"Why of course, you do not, do you?
Of course you do not...
Say, why do you not come over here and join me by the campfire...?"


AC 13/11/11 | 2/5/6 | HP 44 | Init +2, Percep. +10 CMD 13 Slots: | 1st-8 2nd-7 3rd-4 | Arcane Bolt 9/day

And, of course, the innocent boy-puppet skips over. Why wouldn't he?


Male Half Orc Barbarian 5/ Oracle 1/ RP 1, Perception +7, Darkvision, Fort +8/ Ref +1/ Will +3, Init +4, AC 18, HP :76

Kithian smiles and thows his bearded friend a hand axe. "Works well for kindeling..."


Still waiting on the transfer. I sent another email, so hopefully soon.

In the meantime, I'm working on an overview I can post here to make sure we're all caught up with the story, important clues, etc.


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 3/UC Rogue 4 | AC 22/14/18 (uncanny dodge), hp 42/46; 10/10 Bardic; Effect: None

I am copying this to all my games.

Sorry for late notice, but I am headed down the road to vacation for a week. Connectivity and availability may be an issue, so please bot for me rather than waiting too long. I will peek in if I can and normal posting is expected to resume in nine days.

I don't say this enough to the people in RL, let alone to my virtual friends, but I appreciate you and this game we share. Peace.


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 2

You're going to leave me alone with them?!
I'll never survive...


Alright, I'm here!

I'll make the background post this weekend, and the first gameplay update on Sunday or Monday.


The past few days...

1. The party is heading toward Fort Rannick to check on the Black Arrows, a group of soldiers and rangers who patrol the Storval Rise to prevent any giant incursions into civilized lands.

1b. The Black Arrows have not been heard from in several weeks. That is almost unheard of, and certainly warrants investigation.

2. Shelelu, a friend from Sandpoint, has joined your quest.

3. The party first lands in Turtle Ferry, a sleepy town that doesn't have much going for it.

3b. While in Turtle Ferry, you discovered a man with a 7-pointed star tattoo. He said he got the tattoo to save money at an illegal bar and gambling hall in town.

3c. The tattoo is familiar, you have seen it appear elsewhere during your travels.

4. On your journey to Fort Rannick, you encounter a wounded firepelt and an ogre. You free the animal and kill the ogre.

4b. The ogre has a small dirty blanket tucked into his belt. There are several patches of human skin sewn into the blanket. All bear a tattoo of several black arrows, confirmed by Shelelu to be a mark of membership in the Black Arrows. The skin pieces are only a few days old.


For the questions in the Gameplay thread, I'm really just trying to get a sense of how the group is traveling along the path. Are you simply walking through the woods, do you have a typical marching order, are you taking care to be as quiet as you can be, are you having anybody scout 100' ahead of the group, etc? I don't need rolls or anything, just a brief description of what's going on.

Just to recap the situation, you found somebody's animal companion who wants you to follow it. You also discovered that an ogre and his dogs were trying to kill the animal companion. The ogre and his dogs are dead, and now you're following his trail back to wherever he came from (which the animal companion supports). You also discovered evidence that a number of people have been at the least tortured by the ogre.

So when thinking about how you want to travel, are you going to push yourselves to try and get to the location as quickly as you can (hoping speed allows you a chance to save more captives), or are you going to proceed cautiously (hoping the element of surprise works in your favor)?

As for spells, I've found that people sometimes like to pre-cast when going into a hostile environment. I'm totally fine if the answer is "nothing right now" but I wanted to double-check.

And sorry for not being clearer, I'll try to explain myself better going forward.


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 3/UC Rogue 4 | AC 22/14/18 (uncanny dodge), hp 42/46; 10/10 Bardic; Effect: None

You are absolutely fine. I know a lot of groups that have a standard package as they enter a new area. We haven't - we generally get a feel for what we are going into first.

Camillo is not really a buff-style caster and he's more rogue than bard, so I guess his preparation will be limited to moving with stealth because he would rather be surprising them than being surprised. I will post accordingly.


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/4 - Paladin/2 [HP 61/61; AC27,T13,FF26; F+12,R+7,W+11; Per+7; Init +1(roll twice)]

If we see an encounter, Sayniek will cast Ironskin on herself (1 minute/level). - will buff her AC to 31.


AC 13/11/11 | 2/5/6 | HP 44 | Init +2, Percep. +10 CMD 13 Slots: | 1st-8 2nd-7 3rd-4 | Arcane Bolt 9/day

And mage armor takes my AC to 17, but I will not cast it until we actually think we'll get into trouble.


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/4 - Paladin/2 [HP 61/61; AC27,T13,FF26; F+12,R+7,W+11; Per+7; Init +1(roll twice)]

Sayniek will also cast Shield of Faith before marching into danger. That actually brings her AC to 33, enough to stop some attacks.


I've added a link in the Campaign Info tab to a Google Drive. There is a map inside of the farm - your group is the red circle at the bottom of the map. The house is on the left, the barn is on the right. The guard walks between the two buildings on an irregular time table.


AC 13/11/11 | 2/5/6 | HP 44 | Init +2, Percep. +10 CMD 13 Slots: | 1st-8 2nd-7 3rd-4 | Arcane Bolt 9/day

*Posted to all my games*

I am going on vacation this Friday until Monday the 16th. Posting may be sporadic, but since I do 90% of my posting from my phone anyway I won't be completely radio silent. If I disappear for a while, just know I'm not dead.


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 2

The confusion over the firepelt was genuine on my part, Vidar is grumpy and ornery, but not a deliberate a+%&#~@!.


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 3/UC Rogue 4 | AC 22/14/18 (uncanny dodge), hp 42/46; 10/10 Bardic; Effect: None

No worries, we're good. Camillo's not supposed to be the planner and thinker and I felt like he was getting too close to it. Being frustrated that his "big idea" wasn't immediately snapped up seemed a reasonable response. Yours truly thinks too much and he was channeling too much of my personality.

Neither of us (player or character) are angry, but Camillo is ready to do something, even if it's the wrong thing.


So an illusion, fog, then charge and ambush the guard?


AC 13/11/11 | 2/5/6 | HP 44 | Init +2, Percep. +10 CMD 13 Slots: | 1st-8 2nd-7 3rd-4 | Arcane Bolt 9/day

Yes. Sure. Go team!


Male Half Orc Barbarian 5/ Oracle 1/ RP 1, Perception +7, Darkvision, Fort +8/ Ref +1/ Will +3, Init +4, AC 18, HP :76

Lets do this!


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/4 - Paladin/2 [HP 61/61; AC27,T13,FF26; F+12,R+7,W+11; Per+7; Init +1(roll twice)]

Works for me.

Also, enlarge person on Kithian. Nothing spells fun more than an enlarged barbarian with a big weapon.


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 2

Now begins the killing, followed by a light salad.


So this has a very interesting chance of screwing up this whole encounter - I'm really excited to see what happens!

Here is what I think the current plan consists of:

Sayniek casts enlarge person on Kithian
Pinocchio conjures bait animal
Sayniek casts fog cloud

Kithian charges forward

What are Vidar and Camillo doing?


Male Half Orc Barbarian 5/ Oracle 1/ RP 1, Perception +7, Darkvision, Fort +8/ Ref +1/ Will +3, Init +4, AC 18, HP :76

Kithian will wait to see if the guard takes....the bait.


Right, sorry, I'm assuming that the plan works as intended. The ogrekin gets a save, but shouldn't surprise any of you to know that he doesn't have an awesome Wis score. :)


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 3/UC Rogue 4 | AC 22/14/18 (uncanny dodge), hp 42/46; 10/10 Bardic; Effect: None

Camillo is waiting, but tentatively planning to flank the ogrekin and sneak attack him. Not that an enlarged Kithian needs much help.


Do you want access to the Roll20 map, or would you rather me post a pdf screen capture of it?


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 3/UC Rogue 4 | AC 22/14/18 (uncanny dodge), hp 42/46; 10/10 Bardic; Effect: None

I have a Roll20 account, but I haven't delved into accessing it from my phone, which is what I use to post most of the time. I'm OK with combat by narrative, so even if I cannot see the map, as long as I have some details in the descriptions, I'm good. So whatever you and the rest of the group prefer is fine.


AC 13/11/11 | 2/5/6 | HP 44 | Init +2, Percep. +10 CMD 13 Slots: | 1st-8 2nd-7 3rd-4 | Arcane Bolt 9/day

Roll20 from a phone is awful. I do my posting from a phone as well most of the time. I hear it's better if you pay them money, but I'm not about to do that.


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/4 - Paladin/2 [HP 61/61; AC27,T13,FF26; F+12,R+7,W+11; Per+7; Init +1(roll twice)]

Used Roll20 for a short time in one campaign a few years ago. Do not remember it as being great, but I think that the campaign died before we really got to use the system. I usually post from my computer, so as long as it works on a Mac, I am good.


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/4 - Paladin/2 [HP 61/61; AC27,T13,FF26; F+12,R+7,W+11; Per+7; Init +1(roll twice)]

Is there a link to the Roll20? I do not see one. You can put it at the top of the Roll20 (or wherever the maps are), or as a link on your posts, either would make it easy.


Sorry all, made a long post yesterday but seems to have gotten lost. I'll have to rewrite.

Here is a link to the roll20 site: Click Here


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/4 - Paladin/2 [HP 61/61; AC27,T13,FF26; F+12,R+7,W+11; Per+7; Init +1(roll twice)]

When I click on the link, all it gives me is a white page that says "Not Authorized"


Hm, that's not intentional. :)

Sorry about the trouble, I'll figure out what I'm doing wrong.


After some research, it appears I need to send you a different link that will allow you to Join the game. I'll post it here tonight asap.


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/4 - Paladin/2 [HP 61/61; AC27,T13,FF26; F+12,R+7,W+11; Per+7; Init +1(roll twice)]

No problem - still does not work at this point. I think that I have used roll20 before, so I am pretty sure that it works on my computer.


Try this one, I think I was sending you the direct link to the map for players. The link below should be the one you need to Join the game.

Try this one.

Let me know if you still have problems.
