Undari is fine with the plan. He has not taken anything from “party treasure” except the items already discussed (cloak and some medicines).

Undari has a plan, but if you guys want to go with the ropes, feel free. If you want to know more about his plan, please ask in character. Undari is used to living and traveling alone, and does not often think to explain himself to others...

Quick gut check for the party: is everyone feeling okay about the game? I get that life happens and people get busy but it feels like Undari, Gaius, and I have been dominating the thread and I don't want others to feel crowded out.

Just checking in.

I've just been busy that's all. Im sorry about not being around but the month of September has been pretty bad and hopefully now that its Octoboer things calm down a bit so I can post more regularly.

I'm still here, still checking in. Have been much busier lately than anticipated. Not sure if this is gonna be the new norm or what :(


To keep everyone updated, I have sent a message to Boudra's player to check in with them. Although they mentioned they were dealing with a move, it has been a month and a half since their last post.

Although we just added Gaius and Undari, I'm reaching out to two potential new players recommended by Thorek. One of them has already eagerly responded and created a character. If there are no objections, I was going to introduce them once the party nears the fort - which should be right after this battle.

Hi everyone! My name is Esperanza and I will be your swashbuckler for this campaign. I'm all caught up on your adventures to date and am very excited to join your band of camping enthusiasts.

Having ventured out from Hidden Hope, beginning a new phase in your resistance against the Ironfang Legion, you have faced terrible beasts and thinned out the hobgoblin's presence in the Chernasardo.

This accomplishment milestone calls for a level up. Welcome to level 5!
As a reminder, for HP, you take the HD's average, rounded up.

...

Since I have not heard a reply from Boudra's player, I am going to retire her to NPC status.
Thorek, did you still want to reach out to Cellion about joining the game?

...

Esperanza, I think we'll make your in-game introduction now. As the party traces this patrol's tracks, you happen upon them while leading your own group of refugees. I will send you a PM with information you have gleaned from your travels that the party has not yet learned.

I've finally updated my character. The most interesting updates I get is manifold tricks which means I can implant on multiple people, a trick that allows people to use my stealth modifier, 2nd level spells including tongues, and the damage from my painful stare increases. I still need to set up a macro for botting as while she's relatively straightforward its still a bit odd.

Hey everyone, I'm going to be on a trip from the 22nd through the 29th. I'll still have my phone and computer and such, but just letting you know in case I'm slow to post.

Edit: I put some botting instructions in my profile, down at the bottom. Let me know if there's something important I missed.

My fellow gamers/adventurers: I hate to have to say this, but I think I’m gonna have to bow out of my PBP games. We all know how real life can rear its ugly head, and I’m just not finding the time to work on my online hobby these days. I can barely keep up with reading posts, let alone posting any actions on my own, and I’d rather not limp along in some half-ass fashion without being able to give the time and energy that these games and our characters deserve. I wish you all the best and thank you for including me in your stories. -Rob

Sorry to hear that, but real life does come first. I know we just met but I enjoyed getting to know your character when I was catching up with all the old posts before Esperanza was able to make her first appearance.

I'm very sorry to see you go. It was a lot of fun having you in our party. Thank you for playing, and I wish you well going forward.

Posting this in all of my campaigns. I'm sorry for my absence the past few days, but I've had some personal things come up that have kept me from posting. Related to those things, I will be taking a break from PbP, likely until next Monday (11 Nov). While I hope you will bot the character I have in our game and allow me to continue when I return, I completely understand if you would rather have me dropped from the game.


I've updated the encounter map, so you guys should be able to move your tokens now.
I forgot to change the sharing settings when I set up the new map. Sorry about that.

I'd like to issue a correction: assuming Thorek did get that Ironskin woad paste from Undari (he didn't confirm or contradict), Thorek's AC should be 28 instead of 24


Male Varisian Human Druid (Restorer) | AC 19 (23) (Touch 10, Flat-Footed 19) | Hp 30/33 | Fort +6, Reflex +2, Will +9 | Conditions: Resinous Skin (DR 5/Piercing), Ironskin (+4 AC) | Druid (Restorer) 5

Sure thing. From my records, Undari, Esperanza, and Thorek have used the Woad. He did suggest all the front liners use it—he found it very helpful against the owlbears.

Yeah, I have it reflected in my tagline in the braces and listed it as an active condition.

As per his instructions, I am botting him for now.

I am working on a post now, but it involves A LOT of dice rolls, so it's taking some time to compose.

Oh yeah, I guess 2 rounds of readied actions and multiple saving throws for half a dozen creatures would probably take a fair amount of work. :P

Just finished.

You are correct. It was a good deal of work, but I'm proud of having done it.
Frankly, I'm also impressed by how much effort the party make its enemies go through before they even have the slimmest chance of hitting Thorek.

Going to see what others do first, trying to reserve spells and the map appears to have shifted.

Potentially! At the very least, a bunch of the debuffs I'll be able to put on people with my feints grant Will saves, which your hypnotic stare ability will help with. Other than that it looks like both classes are pretty specific our abilities only trigger off of people I've feinted or that you're staring at, but there could be interactions I'm not aware of.

Worst case we're going to have some very confused enemies.

I think what I'm going to do is go one? maybe more levels of guiding blade to pick up the teamwork feat that provokes AOO if you front an enemy. Also, I forgot to pick Lily's level 5 feat which will just be Combat Reflexes. Its currently useless but will be useful as a prerequisite.

That sounds great! I can get Feint Partner and Improved Feint Partner as bonus feats at 9th and 12th, but if you take Guiding Blade 1 at 8th level you'd be able to pick IFP as your bonus feat and just grant it to me periodically instead.

That would make us a pretty nasty combo, IMO.
