Discussion thread created!

Still looking over the 5e stuff. I don't have the learning skills I once had (it's a long story, so it's taking awhile).


No worries. :)


Male Human Mythic Loiterer

If it's ok, I think I'd like to stick with the PF rules, at least for this first game. It'll give me more time to look over the 5e stuff for a later game.

Looking forward to getting started! Where do we go from here?


Alright, I made the first gameplay post.

Describe what your character says and does. For direct in-character speech, use bold tags with quotation marks, like I did in my post. For in-character internal thoughts, use italics and quotation marks. If you need to ask me something out of character, either bring it here to the discussion thread or write it in ooc tags, like this.

Now, let's have an adventure!

EDIT: Forgot the weather roll:
3d10 ⇒ (8, 10, 3) = 21


Male Human Mythic Loiterer

Weather roll? Not familiar with that.


I came up with my own little system for random weather. You can see the current weather (and some other info) at the top of any page in the campaign.


Male Human Mythic Loiterer

I posted. Not a large one (I'm entertaining a migraine at the moment). Once the haze has passed I should be getting into the swing of things more quickly and more in depth.


Just noticed that you don't have any of your skills listed on your profile. Might want to get those filled in. ;)


Male Human Mythic Loiterer

Yipes! Thanks!


I also highly recommend typing out the dice code for your standard attack/damage routine and putting it at the top of your profile for easy copy/pasting. For an example, see this character of mine, though you probably don't need nearly as many dice sets as he did.

I recommend something like this (with brackets instead of parentheses):

(dice=Morningstar]1d20+5[/dice], (dice=Damage]1d8+2[/dice]

Then you just copy/paste it into the Gameplay thread when you're making an attack. When you use Power Attack, just copy/paste and then insert a -1 and a +2 in the appropriate spots. (Alternatively, include a separate pre-typed string for PA.)

Awesome. I'll do that in a bit. I actually meant to do it earlier, bu the bloody headache and all...


Male Human Mythic Loiterer

Done!


The weather is...
Weather: 3d10 ⇒ (8, 6, 7) = 21
...the same as the first day.


Male Human Mythic Loiterer

Groovy.


Male Human Mythic Loiterer

My headache seems to have finally gone away. My gameplay should pick up a bit in quality. (I hope!) Should the ooc discussion here be done under the Ardishir alias, as well?


I find that the Discussion thread is typically used with aliases, though there's no hard-and-fast rule there.

Now, off to make a Gameplay post...


Day 3 weather: 3d10 ⇒ (9, 4, 9) = 22

Whoops, just realized those last two days were supposed to be more cloudy/rainy than they were. Oh well, not gonna ret-con it. But today is rainy.

EDIT: Heh, kinda nice to have the weather actually bring up a decision point in gameplay. That doesn't always happen. :D


Male Human Magus 3/ Init +2/ BAB +2/ HP 1/ AC 16/Tch 12/FF 14 , FORT +6, REFL +4, WILL +5 /Perception +4, Sense Motive +3

It might be late tonight or even tomorrow before I get to post my turn. Real world stuff interfering.


No worries.


Let's see what Day 4's weather is like:

3d10 ⇒ (1, 9, 1) = 11

Is that good or bad?


It's more toward the sunny and warm end of the spectrum, which after all that rain yesterday means its gonna be muggy and humid and just generally icky. Sucks to be you. ;)


Male Human Magus 3/ Init +2/ BAB +2/ HP 1/ AC 16/Tch 12/FF 14 , FORT +6, REFL +4, WILL +5 /Perception +4, Sense Motive +3

So it's like a typical day here in Arkansas... lol


Okay, I'm confused. I did some math, and my tally shows you having taken 26 damage so far. Did you have some unhealed damage going into this fight or something?

Maybe I miscalculated. I did the math twice and ended up at 28 damage before the last and final attack. I'll recheck, but either way I'm below 0.

You're right. It was 26. I'm at -6.


I came up with 26 after that last barrage. Did you perhaps count damage from attacks that missed?

Perhaps I did. I'll go with what you come up with since I can't seem to get it right. Though I've totally forgotten what my total healthy number should be. I'm sorry. I suck at this.Today just isn't a good thinking day for me. I'll explain why things like this happen sometime if you like.


That last part is entirely up to you, buddy. Anyway, your turn.


Male Human Mythic Loiterer

Thanks for letting my try out a PbP. I may not be cut out for it with the problems I have. I'll keep trying to read the 5e rules and might give it another shot.


You're very welcome. :)
