Also, I'm resetting your damage after your 'fun' in the Theatre Infernalis... let's assume that Chelman and his staff made sure you folks were fighting fit... and any non-lethal heals over time anyways

So while Euphie offered to heal Oscar after the spookshow, we never rolled the die for it and Chelman and co. fixed us up off-screen anyway.

Of course, if you want to walk around on 2HP, stop you I shall not... :P

I believe our illustrious GM restored Oscar's Hp to full on the basis of that offer.
Without it he would have gone down to the explosion :(


Indeed... I restored everyone to full HP at the end of 'Act One' so there would be no need to burn 1/day or other such limited resources...


Noble Scion Arcanist. Spells 0/3 1st HP 6/7 AC 15

Oh! I thought that was based on the offer.
In that case, Euphemia, healing would be much appreciated.


Noble Scion Arcanist. Spells 0/3 1st HP 6/7 AC 15

Should say I reckon there's only about a 1 in 3 chance this is a spellcraft roll, but here's hoping.

So... stop me if you've heard this one. Four casters walk into a bar...


Noble Scion Arcanist. Spells 0/3 1st HP 6/7 AC 15

Hope the flavour text I used was okay.

Oh Drin, wherefore art thou?


Noble Scion Arcanist. Spells 0/3 1st HP 6/7 AC 15

Given Euphemia got the hit I figured I'd wait.

@GM Zed: are you trying to give a reason to take Drin out of the combats for now?

Nope... happy to GMPC him and use him as a hit point / damage buffer for you folks ;)

Also, please note I am fairly flat out at work trying to get a report finished by the end of this week... apologies that posting has been scarce, normal service should be resumed next week!!!


Noble Scion Arcanist. Spells 0/3 1st HP 6/7 AC 15

I'm not as committed as Oscar, if people want to interrupt him.


Noble Scion Arcanist. Spells 0/3 1st HP 6/7 AC 15

I believe that hit will put Oscar on -1?


Male Human Bard [Arcane Duelist] 1 | 8/8 HP | AC 14, T 12, FF 12, CMD 12 | Fort -1, Ref +3, Will +4 | Init +2 | Perception +5 || Active Conditions: Mage Armor

Ooof...don't forget we do have those CLW potions we got from Crux's office.

Nope.. you were on full health already and the 4 damage puts you on 3 HP as per header... you live to fight another day - or at least another round!!!

Oh yeah... also what Velrun said... don't be shy with the potions!!!


Good point!


Noble Scion Arcanist. Spells 0/3 1st HP 6/7 AC 15

Thinking of having Oscar rat through the bag anyway, and he could toss a potion to Velrun?
Map would be good though, Euphemia had reach, I think.


Noble Scion Arcanist. Spells 0/3 1st HP 6/7 AC 15

Is tossing a potion like this an option? I think Oscar would need to be 1 square from Velrun and >1 square from the mechanic.


Folks, my holidays appear to have crept up on me with little time to think about PbP - sadly, it seems that I will going old-school and will have no wi-fi for a week... long story short, I'm not going to be in a position to post anything until the 13th August... so, hope you all enjoy a bit of summer - if you are in the Northern Hemisphere... and I'll see you on the flip-side!!!

Have fun, GM! See you in a couple weeks.

Have a good time, Zed!


Peeps into the daylight once more... could it be true? is the site actually working? Wowzers... hope everyone has had a good however many days / weeks its been!!!

Also - tell you what folks... to try and maximise your healing capabilities and to prevent this adventure turning into 'run and find the Office of the Watch', I propose we use a house rule that is being used in one of the games that I am playing in - outside of combat situations (i.e. any time before Initiative is rolled or after GM states 'Combat is over'), all Healing that requires a dice roll is maximised. In this instance, this would put Euphemia's Healing Hex at 9HP healed and Velrun at 3HP

Sounds good to me!

As a little mass-post for the games I'm active in: As some of you may know, I live in Georgia and Hurricane Michael is inbound for us. Exciting! After the storms from Irma it took about 3~ days to get electricity and internet back, so if I don't check in after Wednesday assume I am without power and may be for a few days, and bot me freely so I don't hold things up.

(and don't worry about me, I stocked up on delicious things like chocolate-peanut butter protein bars, fresh fruit, cookies, and cheese crackers, as well as a probably excessive amount of bottled water. And books. Remember folks: the more you prepare for a long-term power outage, the less likely it is to happen.)


Oh wow... good luck!!! ...and a great opportunity to catch up with some reading - awesome!!!

I return from the cold, from the dark.

It didn't hit my area as hard as Irma did, thankfully.

I glanced through a few of Zed's other PbPs; all of the final posts from them were at around the same time, and in one of the discussions a player mentioned that Zed wasn't responding to PMs or even to emails.

Best wishes for Zed, and I hope everything turns out alright with whatever is going on.


Noble Scion Arcanist. Spells 0/3 1st HP 6/7 AC 15

Oh :(

Yeah, best wishes Zed. Hope everything is okay.

Same here. Hope Zed is okay!


Wipes cobwebs away, brushes himself down... coughs several times and steps, blinking into the light...

Soooo... life kicked me, again and again - some self-inflicted (new hobbies) and some work, home and other stuff that just landed in my lap... long story short, I just couldn't go on... and, as I found it impossible to access PbP whilst travelling (I had six weeks in Oct / Nov where I wasn't commuting by train and that killed my ability to GM....) - and then, it built up and up and up... and I got grumpy about PF2.0... yada, yada, yada...

In the end, and for my own sanity, I just logged out and didn't think about RPG'ing for a goodly while... I am so sorry for leaving you folks hanging and without any news of where I was (or that I was, at least physically, fine)...

Life isn't kicking me anyway near as hard these days and so, if folks wanted to push this through to its end then I'd be up for running it - and if not, well I am so sorry for just disappearing on you folks and maybe we'll meet each other at another table one day...

Welcome back, Zed!

One's own health and enjoyment comes first, always, so in that sense I am glad you took the time you needed for yourself. I'm up for finishing this delve into the secrets of the Theatre Infernalis if the others are; if they aren't, well, it's been fun while it lasted.


The shadow from the past, slightly more distinct now, waves towards the neighbourhood witch...

Yeah, it was a crash and burn moment but I'm definitely back - and we are so close to the end on this one... if we're all up for it, I'll post a recap of the story so far - context is always helpful when bashing creatures of the netherworlds... and then move us onwards...

Hope everyone is well???

Welcome back Zed!

I am perfectly fine with wrapping up this delve as well, though like Euphemia says your health comes first.

Let's see if we can come to a satisfying resolution!

I think I’m going to bow out of this one. I’ve lost the narrative.

Glad you are okay, zed.

No worries Tessara - I totally understand (there's not very far to go but if you are going to struggle grabbing hold of the narrative then that's no fun!!!)... and yeah, feeling much better now!!!


Noble Scion Arcanist. Spells 0/3 1st HP 6/7 AC 15

Continuing sounds great :)
Thanks for coming back to tell us you were okay!


Noble Scion Arcanist. Spells 0/3 1st HP 6/7 AC 15

Damnit. Slipped up on name, and missed edit window :(


Hey cool kids... sorry for the slowdown, I've been getting ready to go on holiday for the last week (we're off on a family jaunt to Greece) and tomorrow, we're off!!! Not sure I'll have interwebs so not sure I'll move us along until next weekend... 'pologies!!!

Have fun in Greece!


Wow... Rhodes!!! Medieval city with almost entirely intact city walls that you can walk around plus a rabbit warren of ancient alleyways, etc - just fantastic... if you ever have the opportunity to visit the Greek Islands, I can 100% recommend it - genuinely amazing.


Noble Scion Arcanist. Spells 0/3 1st HP 6/7 AC 15

Nice.
Hoping to go to Italy soon - might see if we can detour.

Yeah... although I think there'll be plenty to see in Italy!!!
