I'm good. No problems yet other than 10-12 hour work days.

Same here, isolated and working from home, waiting for the wife to get back from where she was sheltering at a friend's house for the last couple weeks. (Hopefully neither of us are carrying it.) But my co-workers are not very mindful of work hours and tend to call with questions at all hours of the day, demanding videoconferencing, which means I can be pulled away at any time.

Everyone OK? I'm assuming just busy like me.

Yup I'm here. Vaguely confused at the plan so I'm just following Spitter.

They are not a threat and there is no point on wasting resources on trying to attack them inside a fortified location. We are simply 'bypassing them' in order to save time and energy.

Feel free to fireball them if you want.

I was just hoping Pavo could 'Disable Device' on the door as we go past to keep the Kobolds bottled up and out of our hair.

Clearer now?


I am basically waiting to see if Pavo was going to do that and waiting to hear about a destination. There are many doors and passageways to courtyards. You could boldly walk in the main entrance or you could skulk about...


Male Elf Wizard 5 | AC 14, Touch 13, FF 11 | HP 37/37 | F +4, R +5, W +7 | Init +14 | Perc +4

Gotcha. Sounds good.

Then I will follow and conserve resources.


My apologies for the delay, chalk it up to the craziness of 2020 added to my own innate crazy! I will be getting back to a normal posting rate over the course of this weekend. Stay safe, healthy, and creative y'all!

I'm not one to force anything, but Does Wilfried have any really useful magic items yet? IF not...I say give him the belt of Giant Strength. Using that two-handed weapon with augmented strength will make his spear attacks pretty devastating since a +4 strength bonus gets upgraded to a +6. The amulet is all yours Leng. But you already have a magic weapon, and I think this would benefit the group more as a whole. But that's just my humble opinion.

No argument from me!

I was thinking along the same lines as Spitter on the amulet. The belt is really nice. The only thing is I got the glamored +1 magic armor and the +2 morphing anti dragon sword. Pavo might be able to make use of it. If not I won't say no.

A note to all of my games: My availability will be sporadic from now until the end of next week. Please DMPC me as needed.

I hope not. With so many things going on I have several GMs that are AFK for fires, or hurricanes, etc... Everybody still in?

All, I have posted a message on DM Dickie's web blog:

Hopefully, he will get back to us soon.

I talked to DM Dickie yesterday, RL is taking a lot of time. He hopes to be back posting soon.

Good news!
=)


I'm working on getting back to normal, been dealing with a host of stuff including health stuff, family health stuff, some of the worst anxiety I've had in years combined with my girl having the worst depressive episode she's had in years, plus more family stuff. I'm working on getting back on track, so here we go...


Male Elf Wizard 5 | AC 14, Touch 13, FF 11 | HP 37/37 | F +4, R +5, W +7 | Init +14 | Perc +4

I will be traveling this weekend and completely unavailable until Monday. Please DMPC me as needed.

Renliat will cast haste on the party then use smaller blasts to help with DPS.

Still here. Still hopeful.

Sent a PM to the GM. Hopefully he is OK.

I just got an e-mail update from GM. He's OK, but has been dealing with a lot of personal issues. He should be getting back into the swing of things soon hopefully!

=)


Male Elf Wizard 5 | AC 14, Touch 13, FF 11 | HP 37/37 | F +4, R +5, W +7 | Init +14 | Perc +4

Thanks for the update.

A note to all my games:

I will be out of town starting tomorrow morning until next Tuesday morning (the 17th). I will be in a location entirely without internet and will be completely unable to post. Please GMPC me as needed.


Hopefully Ren catches the most recent update.

Also, hopefully if you're in multiple games with me, this hasn't spammed you out, but I owe an explanation. Skip it if you've read it, lol.

2020. I mean, 2020, right? This year has been really rough on everyone, but the last few months have been especially hard on me personally. I've been cycling between extreme anxiety and depression. Some of the worst of both I've ever had. It's causing major issues in my play-by-post gaming and my life in general, which only feeds back into the cycle!

So when I try to update my games I have terrible thoughts regarding pressure, self-worth, imposter syndrome, and so on. As a result I've been in full avoidance mode. I want so badly to finish "Dragon's Demand" and continue my mechwarrior treasure hunt. I want to get back in touch with Khar, a warrior who is unburdened by depression (but who does suffer from serious confusion about his place in Athas as a free mul), and with Drahlneep who does reflect some my emotional state. I miss Tarot's leadership, and I want to see how things shape up in Longacre and the Stolen Lands. I have a chance to join a new Dark Conspiracy game and how can I ignore that?

And I want to start a new project. For a while now I've wanted to go back to old school World of Darkness and have sketched out an outline for a Vampire game. I can't launch a new project with unfinished business and after a long period of absence, it's just not right. Besides, I want all my ducks in a neat little row first.

I've been having a lot of trouble pushing through the panic. I'm trying to refocus all the time and today I'm going to breathe through it and just try and move forward somewhere. New Year's resolutions will be including finding a decent therapist and somehow forcing more exercise. 2020 is almost over. Normalcy is knocking on the door.

This game has a special place to me, I love this game. I must see it through to the end.


Male Elf Wizard 5 | AC 14, Touch 13, FF 11 | HP 37/37 | F +4, R +5, W +7 | Init +14 | Perc +4

Well I thought about doing a big feels good post but...

Yeah. F&!! 2020.

Been really hard for those of us with anxiety/depression issues too.

Honestly, don't worry about it GM. It happens. I'm excited to be moving again! And keep whatever pace you would like. I would rather have a chill GM posting 1/week than a stressed out high strung GM who feels obligated to post 1/day. Gaming is an escape, it's supposed to be fun and relaxing!

:)

2021 is looking SO MUCH better. Keep your chin up as best you can, and if you ever need to talk, PM me.

Quick post:

Renliat will not use any more major resources for this fight.

My wife has decided to have family over in spite of the pandemic, so I'll be away through the weekend.

I thought Burning Hands did a maximum of 5d4? Are you doing something special with it?

I am! And I'm happy to explain :)

So Renliat is currently a 5th level caster. A typical burning hands from a 5th level caster would do 5d4 damage. However Renliat has invested heavily in doing damage with his spells.

Renliat has the Spell Specialization feat, and he has chosen burning hands as his specialized spell. This means that he treats his CL as 2 higher when casting burning hands, so at CL 7

"But Renliat!" you say, "Burning hands caps at 5d4!"

You're right! However Renliat has also taken the Intensified Spell metamagic feat, which allows him to increase the maximum number of damage dice by 5 levels (up to 10d4 at CL 10), at the cost of increasing the spell level by 1. And as you can see by his profile, he has a number of "Intensified Burning Hands" prepared as 2nd level spells.

"Ok ok, but what is this +3?"

Renliat has the Evocation Arcane School, and one of the abilities is Intense Spells, which allows him to add 1/2 his level to the damage of any spells that do hit point damage. And since his CL is treated as 7 for burning hands, that means he gets to add 1/2 (rounded down to 3) to the burning hands damage, thus getting the damage of 7d4+3.

Hope that explains it well :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now what is really scary is that you can do this even more brutally at 1st level. Take spell focus (evocation), spell specialization (burning hands), and the outlander trait, and you can have a CL 4 burning hands spell at 1st level, prepared as a first level spell. That means your 1st level caster is throwing out 4d4 burning hands, which is an average damage of 10! With the right bloodline or arcane school it's up to 4d4+2 (average of 12!!!). Mind you that's just average, it can get all the way up to 18. So it tends to drop pretty much any kind of threat you would expect to see at 1st level, and even if you don't they're going to be reeling on death's door.

Howdy again folks! I've got something for those of you looking to add a game to their lists of PBP.

I have a GM running an Age of Ashes game for Pathfinder 2nd Edition. I wanted to try out 2nd with this game, and we now have an opening for a new player. If interested check out the link and contact our GM: DM Nex!

Sorry all, I'm pretty sick and I've got to get a COVID test ASAP. I will try and stay active here, but I cannot guarantee anything for at least a week or so I fear. Stay healthy everyone.
