Hey TechnoDM! Thanks for picking me/Boudra! :)

A quick question before I dot in to Gameplay...I've decided, as I said I might, to switch Boudra's curse to Deaf. It just feels more apropos to me (and I can always take the revelation that lets me see in darkness). How do you want to work her communication with other people, though? Obviously sign language is one option, but I assume not everyone will know it, and I would like to be able to participate semi-fully.

Mostly, I'm wondering whether you'll allow me to spend a point in Linguistics to read lips, per the PFS rule answering the last question on this page. If so, happy to spend the point. Boudra does know Common after all, so she can talk in a pinch--just prefers not to, since her accent isn't easy to understand for people unaccustomed to it. (But of course, "Look out behind you!" is always easy to get out. :P)

Woohoo! Glad to meet y'all. Quick question: how do you make your important stats appear under your name like Caladra and Cedric have? Sorry for my newbieness; still getting the hang of the forums.

No worries! We were all new sometime. As you may notice looking at the post in which you asked the question, anything you put into the "race", "class/levels", or "gender" entries in your profile shows up in that spot just under your name whenever you post with that profile. So pick a format that works for you (or however the GM asks for it, if they have a preference), put whatever info you want to display in those lines, and that's all there is to it. I usually just put all of it into one so I don't have to remember which order it slots them into. And nice to meet you, too!

I can see me dropping a point into linguistics to learn sign language. I see Caladra being all bark and no bite with a lot of the villagers. So as things continue I may have Caladra spend more time with you to make sense in game wise her learning sign language.

Everything should be good to go. Anything else Im forgetting? The only other time I've done PBP was for a PFS scenario so Im still relatively new.

I know what it means, because you're a mesmerist, but it really amuses me that it says you're staring at no one in your status line. It makes it sound like you're anxiously avoiding eye contact with everyone :P

Thanks, GM. Looking forward to it.

I've created this spreadsheet to help track rewards / treasure. I'll try to get it into my stats line tomorrow.

Fellow Players: Let me know if y'all want more or less to happen in that spreadsheet and I'll see what I can do. Have a good one!

Oops. Well, sorry for the confusion on my part - only got to the results of being accepted last night after a bout of illness, and didn't see the last few posts on the recruitment thread about being late (only up through post 100 on this thread) but if I'm out I'm out. Just ignore my posts if Mavis is in, GM. Have a good time all!

Since he's chatting with Caladra, may I move Thorek's token over to her table?


Yes, you may start there.

Ah...starting off with a bang! :)

I swapped out Boudra's skill rank in Diplomacy for one in Linguistics...probably the only one she'll take, but now she can keep up with discussion without too much trouble. And it'd be great to have someone else learn sign language, Caladra! Be nice not to have to struggle too too much with communicating. And to have an interpreter. :P

I came up with a few backstory points that weren't included in the original submission. First of all just like in her portrait she is missing an eye. This occurred during an attack on her family by fey and is how she got the scar from her trait. During the attack they were rescued by Chernasardo rangers which left an impression on young Lily and is why she took up archery.
Edit:
I'll pick up sign language next level. I just felt it appropriate to pick Sylvan for her first language.

Yeah. The only reason why I did that in my turn is because there is only really one thing I am doing at this level which is stare and shoot.

GM, what I usually do when playing a prepared caster is to use the strike-through text in the stat block to show which spells I've used. Does that work for you?

We really should work on a way to make sure that whoever my character stares at remains easy to understand. It gets really confusing to keep track of given the minor debuff -2 to will that my character provides even to myself.

Hey dm, maybe figure out a way to put a color border around the monster tokens so we know which is which? It would make it easier for lily as well as declaring which goblin we're attacking if we're adjacent to two or more.


I'll work on it

As a heads-up, I'm going to be moving into a new place over the course of the next two or three days, so I'll probably be a little sparse for a while. I'll try to check in as often as I can, but feel free to bot me if needed.

Nothing like picking a skill just to make something kind of goofy and then discovering it can be used to help set up high explosives.

Sorry for the lack of clarity before GM, the dorn-dergar can be used as both a Reach weapon and a normal weapon, with a Move-Equivalent action the wielder can switch between the two "modes". If you like I can add which 'mode' it's in to the quick-reference line next to the character portrait.

PFSRD link

There's also the Darting Viper feat I'll take sometime in the future that makes it a Swift Action to switch between, but I think we're a ways out from that.


Thanks,

Perhaps the best thing to do is to have a default mode (let's say "reach"). I will always assume Thorek is in default mode, unless he takes a move action (and later the swift action) to change modes.

Please put the dorn-derger link (http://www.d20pfsrd.com/equipment/weapons/) in your character sheet, and also put there the default mode of carry.

Then, in gameplay, you can take the action to change modes.

The haul from the Shrine has been entered into the spreadsheet. Click here to take a look.

I'm conscious that a lot of the things that Cyrioul has been picking up are high value items, though many will lose value through use.

Don't feel too bad about it, Cyr. You're the only one who can use most of that stuff anyways :)
I picked up the +1 buckler cause no one else said they wanted it. I'm fine trading it if anyone needs it more though.
