Not a problem. I understand how it can get.

Good news, everyone! Paizo Customer Service has made me the official game master for the campaign.

I've edited the campaign description so the top of the page has links for the current maps and the party gear/treasury.

Hey everyone. Just wanted to check in, see how you all are doing.

I'm here. I'm just patiently waiting. Sorry I haven't posted that much. Its just that my character is quietly waiting.

Also here, waiting on Boudra to report back? Are there any decent-sized rocks Thorek could stack to make some cover?

Sorry, I was swamped unexpectedly (though I should've expected it) by Thanksgiving festivities. I'm still here!

I'm alive. Just had three stressful thanksgivings and one hell of a Black Friday weekend. Just trying to recharge whenever I can.

I'm still around. Thanksgiving weekend stuff finally starting to die down, and normalcy returns :D


No worries. I assumed the holiday had everyone busy.

Good to go! Welcome back, everyone. :)


So what's the play? Will Boudra lure it or will you use the fisher as bait on a rope?

I say Boudra with maybe thorek and me guarding the mouth of the path so we can attack it when it comes through and prevent it from getting too far in.

I'm also for Caladra becoming to impatient and just going in to try to kill it herself. She's still overconfident after the last couple combats.

Thorek & Cedric have reach weapons, we could take a few shots at it, but Thorek has used up two of his spells for today so he's not at his peak.

I figuered you and me cause that way we could flank since you can do melee as well as reach. I think we also have the highest ACs in the party. My idea was to more lock the thing down fast and prevent him from potentially going after our more squishy party members.


M Half-Elf Wizard 3 (Diviner), AC 16, HP 19/20, FRW +2/+3/+4, INIT +9, Party Reward Tracker | NPC Activity Tracker | Personal Gear Tracker | Combat Status Tracker

Let's do it: Cave fisher bait + melee. Go team go!

Cave fisher bait makes sense to me!

Cool, and then Caladra & I block the tunnel off to screen the rest of the part? Works for me. :)

Sounds like we have a consensus, or close enough

Sorry. I just wasn't sure whether the party had finalized its course of action.

I'm going to be traveling pretty much all day tomorrow, and will definitely not get a chance to check in during that time. After that I'll be visiting family and will be able to check sporadically as activities allow. I'll be coming back home on the 1st and should be back to more-or-less normal on the 2nd.


M Half-Elf Wizard 3 (Diviner), AC 16, HP 19/20, FRW +2/+3/+4, INIT +9, Party Reward Tracker | NPC Activity Tracker | Personal Gear Tracker | Combat Status Tracker

I will also be on the road for the next two days (possible posting), and then with family through the new year. I should be able to post most days, aside from holidays.


No worries. Would you like us to bot as needed or just be patient?

where are we on the map?


Since the area the party just explored was a dead end, you've returned to room K3.

The green diamond should mark the party's current location for exploration purposes.

Straight up then? The room connected to K7?

wherever's good for me. Caladra's getting into weapon mindset. Point her somewhere and she'll go kill whatever's over there.


M Half-Elf Wizard 3 (Diviner), AC 16, HP 19/20, FRW +2/+3/+4, INIT +9, Party Reward Tracker | NPC Activity Tracker | Personal Gear Tracker | Combat Status Tracker

Bot as needed! Control then buffing then damage.

Sorry for my long absence, guys. Life threw me a few curveballs, but I'm gonna try to jump back in!

Dear all,
Having computer problems. Will likely be unable to post for a few days. Apologies. Please bot me as needed. I hope to be back soon, but with the holidays, my computer repair may be delayed.

Hey everyone, turned out to not really have much time to get to this during the holiday. I'm back home with stable internet again as of today, and starting to catch up on what I missed. I'll get a post out once I've gotten through all of it.


F Human Archaeologist-5 HP 35/35, AC 18 (T13 F15*), F+2 R+7* W+3, Init+3, Per +8, Luck:11/11 | current:

Hi, all - sorry for my delay. We are on a multi-day trip home from holiday, and I’m doing almost all of the driving and the majority of the logistics when I’m not.

I will be able to post tomorrow, Jan 3rd. Peace!


Should I bot Caladra for the surprise round?

I would say yes just to keep things moving, it's been three days.

btw, does it look like it would be possible to use any of the piles of bones as a weapon, i.e., to topple onto an adversary?


@Bree, yes, that would be a very viable tactic.

I'm sorry guys, for whatever reason i read it as "caladra can't take a surprise action"

Hey, all! Once the townspeople are safely in the caves, I recommend taking a look at the LOOT SPREADSHEET to make sure you've claimed the items you need for your PC. I'm still putting in a few item values.

@DM Vayelan: Once we hit Level 3, Cyrioul plans to take "Craft Wondrous Item" as his 3rd level feat. Will this work for your vision of this campaign? Given that we're out in the wilderness, I figure it'd be somewhat necessary for equipping ourselves, but let me know if you have particular thoughts about item crafting.

Thanks all!


F Human Archaeologist-5 HP 35/35, AC 18 (T13 F15*), F+2 R+7* W+3, Init+3, Per +8, Luck:11/11 | current:

I'm gonna grab a couple of thunderstones and stench bladders (not sure how to note those on the sheet Cyr).


4 people marked this as a favorite.

@Cyrioul - I think item crafting will fit in very well. Go right ahead. I'll try to make sure you have downtime to set aside for crafting.

Good timing on that question, too, because....

@Everyone, Level Up!

As everyone decides what items to claim in preparation for exploring the lower levels of the cavern, please also take the time to rise to level 3.


M Half-Elf Wizard 3 (Diviner), AC 16, HP 19/20, FRW +2/+3/+4, INIT +9, Party Reward Tracker | NPC Activity Tracker | Personal Gear Tracker | Combat Status Tracker

Woot! Sounds good!

@GM - Would you be ok with us just sacrificing GP value towards item creation? It seems easier to me, but let me know if you have another request.

@All - If you have an item request, it'd be nice if it tied into an item already on your person or something we've picked up along the way, that'd be ideal. For example, @Caladra, if you'd like to turn that amulet you just picked up into something thematic, I think that'd be fun.

@Bree - In the column with your name, enter a number = the sale value of the item x the quantity you want. So for 2 thunderstones, you'd write 30. For two stench bladders, you'd write 1 (arbitrary number, I don't know what they're actually "worth").


M Half-Elf Wizard 3 (Diviner), AC 16, HP 19/20, FRW +2/+3/+4, INIT +9, Party Reward Tracker | NPC Activity Tracker | Personal Gear Tracker | Combat Status Tracker

@All - I've sorted the list of treasures from highest value to lowest, based on sale value and whether or not the item has already been 'claimed.' Hope that helps!

    +7HP, +1Fort, +1BAB, trap sense, cure light wounds, increase some skills.
    I took craft alchemy to try and help with those projects.
    I also took arcane strike (swift action, +1 to damage). I'm not entirely sold on it though.
