Feat: honestly I don't know. I'm torn between more AC by going Dodge and mobility, or continue her anti-magic stance and go Iron Will (also cause I want Bear's Balance)

For the sake of argument, I point out that there's quite a bit I can do to help your AC with the spells I've been preparing (barkskin/shield other/shield of faith) but not much I can do to help your will save. (Maybe I should start prepping protection from evil instead of 2 blesses... I'm gonna mull that one over for a while). Although, eventually, I'll have a Community Domain aura that allows other people to use my saving throw instead of their own if the effect targets me and others simultaneously.

Hopefully that helps you make your mind up. :)

Plus Cyrioul kinda made me smile when he mentioned the amulet of nat armor. maybe turn my new necklace into one. I just know that the iron will will also increase my chance of saving against friendly spells while raging since I'm having Caladra go an anti-magic route. I really wish I could take the spell penetration and other anti-magic feats that fighters get.

@Caladra: Thorek is going to be working towards the full reach-weapon-battlefield-lockdown build, using his dorn-dergar and AoOs to limit enemy maneuverability. So if we stick relatively close to each other I should be able to keep you from getting swarmed too badly :)

I can sort of help with Will saves in a level or two. Also, I should have my level up soon. I just need to go through my character because I get so many things at level 3.

lol. see, at the thing with Caladra the way I've been playing her is anti-magic cause I remember there being some awesome anti-magic feats, but they're for fighters. Well... Disruptive and spellbreaker mainly. Shatterspell i get cause its a rage power.

edit: apparently disruptive and spellbreaker are rage powers too...

I'll go iron will, cause of the bear's balance feat. I just like the idea of someone trying to scare Caladra and she rages cause she's pissed at them for trying.

Painful Stare Damage increases to 1d8+1 or 1d6+1 if I hit.

EDIT:
Im updating the inventory sheet so who took the belt of incredible dexterity?

Also do we have any daggers? I would like to use them instead of the bow

@Thorek had grabbed the belt at one point - looks like that on the spreadsheet (scroll way down).

EDIT: Also, yes! We have 4 daggers. Found them at Oreld's.

Also, Cyrioul would like to have a conversation with the other spellcasters about how to best share the use of the Pearl of Power. He's ok with not holding it, but if there's a situation where it would be helpful for him to have it, he'll ask for it.

Yeah so I need to fix my stats. For some dumb reason I thought I had the belt but that's an easy enough fix. Also, I'm going to take the daggers.

Oh! I will give up the belt no problem! We even discussed that Lily should have it, I'll go remove my name from it once I'm home.

No that's fine. I was just confused because I checked your inventory on your character and said nothing. I just wanted to ensure we were complete.

Kudos on the ultimatum to Edran, Cedric! That was a great write-up. :)


I got the Lands of Conflict sourcebook last night, so I have access to the Militia System rules that are recommended for the Ironfang Invasion AP.
They're essentially an updated version of the Rebellion rules from Hell's Rebels.

Before we commit to it, though, I wanted to gauge everyone's interest, in case you all think it might be too difficult to manage a second tracking sheet and accompanying rolls.


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, spreadsheets!!!

Seriously, I’m open to trying it out. The other one is pretty stable at this point. So long as we don’t lose any other townsfolk, it won’t need tons of maintenance, right?

Always fun to check out the subsystems. You,l have to let me know what you think of it compared to Hell’s Rebels.

I am interested in giving it a try at the very least, though in my experience subsystems don't work suuuper well with PBPs.

While I don't have a lot of personal desire to learn or use the system, I don't object to adding it if there are others who are more interested and willing to take point with implementing it in play.

consider my vote as "New York abstains, courteously"


@Cyrioul, I wouldn't want you to have to shell out the extra money just because I wanted to try out the book.

Honestly, I would like to try the militia rules, but I can take charge of the record keeping and rolls for it to keep things simpler for you guys.


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

Sounds good - $16 for the PDF seems a little steep. I love that part of Golarion, but I’m good without it.

As for record keeping, I don’t mind giving it a go for now. If it gets to be too crazy, I’ll let you know, and we can say that Cyrioul farms it out tto a trusted townsperson.

Hi, all - just a note that on Wednesday I'll be flying back home with my toddler. Combat posts are a little easier, but if you need to bot me, go for it. Being sickened for the entire fight is just going to make him cast grease, but if the trogs all clump together he might try a glitterdust blast.

I'd be willing to trade the +1 earthbreaker (I don't know who would want it besides Caladra though) for the Belt of Con +2. The extra hp would make my d8 more manageable and I'm going to switch back to my dorn-dergar ASAP.

I thought I posted this already, but apparently not. I don't have a problem with Thorek having the belt of con. It'll help him keep up with Caladra taking half damage regularly. I have no idea when we'll get a chance to sell anything, but unless someone else wants the earthbreaker, I would suggest Thorek might as well continue to hang onto it too.
