Also, for those interested (Mainly GMs), I made a character information spreadsheet to help GMs keep track of hit points, a quick glance at saves and AC, temporary bonuses/penalties to stats, spells per day, abilities per day (Such as barbarian's rage), and effects currently affecting them.

Only thing its missing is CMD, which I just realized. *Fixed now*

Works for PCs and NPCs - though it leaves out specific info such as attacks, gear, etc.

Anyways, feel free to use it if ye want!


That's cool. Colorful.


Thanks! Color coded helps me keep things organized. Still making a few minor touches here and there, so you might see some updates as I go. Going to be using this to keep track of hireling npcs as well as players XD

Holy crap there is so much to catch up on I am overwhelmed @_@;

Apparently there is combat happening? I'd like to jump in at some point but I've got like fifty posts or so to read. Can someone summarize enough to join in at combat while I re-read the backlog?

You are currently at 1 Str, half-sized, and magically slept. No rush, hah!

Summary: We were all escorted to a guest house of the manor grounds, where several of us bickered. After some name calling and foul gases released, we were led to the main building where our host tasked those more intellectually inclined to solve a paradox box, and the rest to unload supplies from a wagon. He and a half elf lady went to talk in another room. When the brainiacs opened the box, 6 nasties popped out and now there is a ruckus.

Dd not know that "Elfie" was already being thrown around in RoW...gonna have to get more creative for Valko...per his request of course...*evil grin*


Yeah Valko (Aka Fenyx) unlocked the Paradox Box without checking it for traps. The box's five traps went off, effecting everyone in the room (Isroth, Valko, Wilhem, Hoosible, and Impy the Clockwork Familiar) with slightly modified versions of Peacebond, Ray of Enfeeblement, Reduce Person, and Sleep, before summoning two Tooth Fairies, two Grimples, and two Pugwampies. Oddly enough, Isroth was the only one to be affected by Sleep, conveniently allowing you the chance to catch up until you're ready for them to wake you in combat!

I did not plan that, but it was hilariously perfect anyways.


Male Gnome Orace 1

Yes, this is the post that started combat (and that lists all effects on you) if that helps.

Someone should of course be able to wake you with a slap. I was going to suggest it before, but decided that since you weren't around I decided it was low priority. Now that you're back, let the slappings begin!

Pretty sure I subconsciously stole that from you to refer to Teladon since I couldn't remember what I was calling him. You know, since he NEVER HAD A NAME! Until now ;)


Male Human Fighter 2 | HP:22/22 | AC: 21 (FF: 19, Touch: 12) | Fort: +5, Ref: +2, Will: +0 | Per: +2 | Init: +2(+3)

Oh. Lol. In that case I may keep calling him Elfie just to tick him off. Hehehe


Male Gnome Orace 1

Back at the waiting room, picking up with the conversation when Hoosible arrived (since I was traveling at the time). Moving this to the Discussion thread so as not to confuse the combat.

Wilhem Versade wrote:
"You've never bought a zombie from Achmed then." Wilhem observes, amusement at his own private joke peeking through.

Hoosible looks at Wilhem, trying to decide how to answer, when Valko joins the conversation.

Valko van Richten wrote:

As the assembly files out of The Eurythnia House, Valko seizes an opportunity to bound up to their most recent arrival: the pallid gnome in the tricorne hat.

"I overheard a brief allusion to matters involving the dead that yet walk—a necromancer amid our number? Excellent! I am familiar with several mixtures and concoctions with which one might preserve certain specimens long beyond what ravages the roll of time might otherwise inflict, though the smell itself is no more enjoyable than the rot of flesh. A discussion for another time, perhaps. Would you be a student of the arcane then? Perhaps a student of gluttony?" Valko's eyes grow more eager with each inquisitive prod.

Hoosible opens his mouth to reply to Valko's first question...and then shuts it as Valko continues on. When the half-elf finally stops to catch his breath, the gaunt gnome shakes his head. "I am, first and foremost, an artist. While I love drying and pressing flowers as well, my primary canvas is the body, uncomplicated by the soul. I have yet to master animating the dead...but I have the pleasure of guiding the undead when I have the good fortune to encounter them."

The more he speaks, the more animated he becomes. "My mentor was a Juju oracle of the Bekyar peoples. He taught me to listen to the Wendo, who follow me always...and the Wendo grant be their blessings. In return I am pledged to draw the Wendo further into this plane, and I pray that it won't be long before I can wed their majesty to the simple beauty of a dried corpse for myself." The ashen gnome looks genuinely wistful at the thought, starting to get lost in a daydream.

When the puzzle is introduced, he stays to take a look...but finds nothing about it that's familiar. He instead finds himself distracted, looking at each of the others who have answered the cyphermages' summons...particularly at the masked human who has so far remained silent. Who are these people I'm to work with? And why, really, have we been called here?


Oh and Crusty, I just caught that some folks substituted their campaign traits. Like was the case for a few others, none of them really fit Hoosible. What do you think about me taking the Student of Faith campaign trait from Rise of the Runelords, instead?

Student of Faith wrote:
While you have personally dedicated your life to a single deity, you study all religions and mortal faiths. Upon hearing that the town of Sandpoint recently completed a cathedral dedicated to the six deities most popular in the area, you had to see the place for yourself, and have arrived in time for the consecration of this holy edif ice. Because of your strong faith and broad range of study, you cast all cure spells at +1 caster level, and whenever you channel energy, you gain a +1 trait bonus to the save DC of your channeled energy.

Also, it's not clear to me. As an oracle I get the Cure spells for free. As a wordcaster, do I get the standard Inflict spells or do I get the Cure Words? (I can see an argument for either, and I'm fine either way.)


When it comes to choosing whether or not you want cure/inflict spells or effect words, pick whether or not you want to go all effect words or all spells for that. So if you pick the Positive energy line, choose Words or Spells, and thats what you go with.

You do not get to mix and match between Words and Spells for this, though.


Male Human Arcanist 1

Well Wilhem has nothing much better to do, and it was that, or probably fall face first into the vomit, so he has gently awoken Isroth by falling on top of him :p


Heheheh, thanks Crusty. Rereading my question I realize I said inflict one place where I meant cure...I'm impressed you parsed the question correctly anyway. For consistency, I'll choose Words, giving me all Cure Words for free.

You didn't mention the trait. Any issues with that substitution?


Ah right, forgot about that question. Go for it. :P


Great Intro post, Rob! :3

However, since you are in the aura of the pugwampis, you need to roll the CMB checks twice and take the lower - not to mention, they have SR, so I'm going to need to roll a CL check for ya for each Magic Missile.

However, with your heightened Caster Level, it should be pathetically easy to overcome. (SR 7, hah!)

I'll do it for you during the round recap, which I'll work on now.

*Edit* Oh, and a tooth fairy gets an AoO.. sneaky buggers and their 5ft reach with them pliers.


Male Samsaran Arcanist

Oh I somehow thought I was further from the pugwanpis than I am, on rechecking the map. Also lol SR7 I never noticed that and I just used them in an encounter this weekend.


Sting points magic missile?

I'm guessing that the translate-then-back-again game is losing something...


Yeah very minor SR - only 7. And their aura is at a 20 ft radius - everyone in the room, effectively.

Not to worry! You succeeded on both anyways :P


Male Samsaran Arcanist

Haha sting points. I believe I input concussive impact magic missile

Did Radyx and Charbonardent move in round 1?

Char tried to move to S13 or Q13 if the porch surface was stone.

Crusty, I am looking at Roll20 right now. Do you want me to type of my actions from before combat or just roll into the init? I'm going to get a workout in, but I look foward to hearing what you want me to do.


Male Gnome Orace 1

Oh, Hoosible's theme song is clearly Jonathan Coulton's Skullcrusher Mountain.

Really, what bard has written a greater lyric than:

I made this half-pony half-money monster to please you,
But I get the feeling that you don't like it. What's with all the screaming?
You like ponies. You like monkeys. Maybe you don't like monsters so much.
Maybe I used too many monkeys.
Isn't it enough to know that I ruined a pony, making a give fore you?


@Al'cazar: Up to you - feel free to type your actions before combat, or just roll into the init.

@Charbonardent: Round 1, none of you guys outside could move - that round was for you guys seeing if you could hear the combat within. You did, so round 2 you get to have your actions.

Just FYI crusty, my post of an action was mainly to let you know that Radyx was indeed responding. When my initiative comes up I will make appropriate adjustments. I'll try to get PC access to be able to see the map when that time comes.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Did I mention that Pugwampi's name was Khan?

:P

OK, it took me longer than I'd expected to finish Hoosible's background...in part because I really started having some fun with it. Hope y'all enjoy this poor misunderstood artist as much as I do. ;0)

Me too :/

In the ~year I've been PBPing with him he's never disappeared like this without word before. However it is Christmas, so maybe he went on a trip and forgot to mention or something?

Traveling tonight...and then on and off til New Years. I'll have my laptop with me, but will be intermittently slow to post.


Hey guys, sorry about my unexplained absense! I'm going to be reviewing where we left off today and moving us along either today or early tomorrow.

And to make up for the week long delay, I'm gonna try and get this ball rolling :x We were doing so good.. bah I hate when real life gets in the way sometimes.

Male Samsaran Arcanist

Hi All!

Just to give you guys a heads-up, I'm super busy because of the holidays and haven't been on the Internet outside of my phone in a few days. I'll be delayed in updating things till this weekend, most likely, though if I manage to steal a little time here and there I will!

I hope you all had an excellent week! :D


Hey guys, sorry again for the delays - 'twas Christmas related stuff this time. Gonna get the post up shortly!


Male Gnome Orace 1

Hey Crusty, no worries but I think you missed my round 3 post. I suspect that wouldn't killed the last fairy at the top of round 3.

Also, I wanted to check in about my Misfortune mystery. For now, let's lean toward using it early. Here are my heuristics for you playing it on my behalf:
Assuming it hasn't been used yet at any time in a round (and I'm in the room), please reroll
* any missed crit confirm for our team
* any crit threat from a foe

And then once the round is more than half over,
* any missed save for our team
* any hit from a foe

Sound good?


It appears that, while I did see it, I didn't notice at the time that you already added the -2 from being sickened, and so I subtracted 2 from it and saw that a 14 was a miss. Looking it over again, I noticed you did subtract it >.<

So, a 16 was a hit - which means you killed the tooth fairy, not Impy. End result remains the same though, and my apologies for the goofup.

---

Huh, I never thought about using that ability to potentially help allies. I guess without the "Take the lower of the two" phrase from the Misfortune Hex, that Misfortune Mystery can actually increase the roll!

Sounds good, then.

Crusty, I had figured the whole hall was vomit/grease covered. If not, I will use the 2nd part of my double move to get to G13 and try to keep the Grimples in this room. Sorry for any confusion.

Well my friends... I am going away on business. I won't be able to access the pazio forums for a while. I won't be able to play with you guys while I am gone, but I plan to come back stronger than before when I return. I'll check in when I can.

-Al'cazar

P.S. It will be a while, but I *will* come back, and I will be participating in another game on the fourms via e-mail relay, so crusy will know that I diden't *totally* disappear
