My secret is an online translator I found when I was trying to figure out how to speak in Cockney: Rabbit Translator for Cockney Rhyming Slang

It gives me issues too when I'm looking at it after I've translated it. I have to sound some of the words outloud just to make sure the translator isn't doing a Babelfish on me.


Character Sheet

Nice.

I may have to steal that for another character.


Character Sheet

Is there an Asha in the house?


All,
Just letting everyone know I will be out of town from Thursday, October 11 through Sunday, October 14, and I will not be able to post until I return.


Male Half-Orc Fighter 1/Rogue 1

Indeed, I should also warn that I'll be a nit spotty over the weekend as it's Canadian Thanksgiving, but I should be able to keep up with the thread via mobile.


Character Sheet

Thanks for the heads up.

Does that mean Korthul should be NPCed?


Male Half-Orc Fighter 1/Rogue 1

I'll try to be available to post over the weekend, but if I haven't posted and Haldhin wants to update, I say, don't wait for me. I'll be back to regular hours come Monday, so it should be fine from there onwards.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Oracle of Life 4

Good to know.

I'm sure it shouldn't be too big of a problem, Haldhin's usually doing stuff during the weekends, I work, etc.


Male Half-Orc Fighter 1/Rogue 1

I'm back from the holidays, and should be good to post consistently for the foreseeable future. Also, good move with that haunt siphon. With an 18 not hitting, I was getting pretty worried. :P


No problem, hope you had an enjoyable break.


Character Sheet

Bjorns general fear of all things unknown and/or magical worked to our advantage.

That said, the Haunt Siphon is probably one of the coolest magic items I've seen in a while. It's useful and powerful enough without being super intrusive.


Female

Once again, sorry for the silence. Last Saturday my godfather was brought into hospital and he's still in the ICU (all because he considers himself a tough guy and neglected an infected appendix for a long time, which then exploded). He's stable now but kept in an artificial coma.

Somehow my family, as a whole, has been the focus of a ton of bad luck over the last few months (people losing jobs, getting sick, all kinds of things) :S

Anyway I'm catching up again. If the s*#+ hits the fan again I'll try to alert you guys sooner.


Male Half-Orc Fighter 1/Rogue 1

I'm really sorry to hear that. :(

Sadly, I've recently had some bad news as well (family emergency) and am heading home for the weekend. I should be back home and good to go again as of next week (i.e. Monday-ish), but until then, I won't be able to post.

Please NPC Korthul until then, and I'll be back to control him soon, if all goes well. I guess it could be played out as him being pretty quiet and still sizing up the group as a whole; he wants to help them because they're on the lookout for Lorrimor's killers, but he's also overly cautious around new people.


Character Sheet

Everything okay Haldhin?


M Half-orc Brawler 1 {HP 12/12; AC16, T12, FF14; F+4 R+4 W+1; Init+2; Perc+5} {Effects: none}

He said above that he'd be out of town from Thursday through Sunday this week and wouldn't be able to post.


Character Sheet

Oh, derp.

Reading is hard.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Oracle of Life 4

Ulfen fail english? That unpossible.

But in all seriousness, I also totally didn't seem to realize, so you've got company, Bjorn. It's okay, though, we're gonna go full throttle when Monday rolls around!

...assuming the paper I'm writing doesn't steal absolutely every last second of my free time. Stupid university homework, why won't you do yourself?!


All, I'm back in town and will be posting again tomorrow. I appreciate everyone's patience.


Character Sheet

Welcome back.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Oracle of Life 4

Hello again.


Male Half-Orc Wizard (Conjurer) 5 {HP 34/34; AC 15, T 11, FF 14; F+3 R+3 W+6/+8 vs. fear effects; Init+1; Perc+12} {Effects: Mage Armor}

I just realized that we've split the party while exploring the ruins of a haunted prison inhabited by the unquiet spirits of murderous madmen...

Haven't we all seen horror movies?!?!?! :-o


Yeah, I noticed that too. :)


Male Half-Orc Wizard (Conjurer) 5 {HP 34/34; AC 15, T 11, FF 14; F+3 R+3 W+6/+8 vs. fear effects; Init+1; Perc+12} {Effects: Mage Armor}

Of course, that seems to be standard operating procedure in horror movies, so I guess we are staying true to form.

But most of the characters usually die horribly in those movies...

At least we left Kendra at home. By horror movie logic, she had an equal chance of being first to die or longest-lived, and those are not good odds. :)

Or this is just an episode of Scooby Doo. Scooby (Korvus) and Shaggy (Bjorn) will come running around the corner any moment going on about some monstrous ghost and really it was just Old Man Gibs all along under a bedsheet.


Luckily, you're only a few rooms away from the entrance. Even in horror films, the bad guys usually let you get a false sense of security before pouncing. You know, the group lets its guard down, starts thinking all the stories are just rumors and hearsay, then BAM! incorporeal balor to the face.

HA! From now on, I'll accept my share of any treasure found in the form of Scooby Snacks!


Just letting everyone know I have updated the Campaign Info tab with our new characters, as well as clarifying the direct link to the shared folder containing our tactical maps, pictures, etc.


Hope everyone is safe with the hurricane hitting the Northeast US today.


Character Sheet

Yeah I just read up on that. Scary stuff.

We're getting snow showers and high winds here in SW VA. Still have power for now. Hope everyone stays safe and dry.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Oracle of Life 4

It's absolutely beautiful here in Florida today.

I am hoping for the well being of everybody back north, regardless!

The storm is supposed to hit Eastern Ontario in the next few days, but by then it will have weakened severely, so we're not too worried around here. I hope everything goes well for the people living along the northeast coast. Scary stuff for sure.


Female

Sorry guys, but between my own b-day and having to put down my dog because his health deteriorated too far I neither had the time nor the will to post something.

I'll try to get a decent one in asap.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Oracle of Life 4

It's alright man. Sorry to hear about your pet, and congratulations on getting older. ;)


Sorry about your dog, take your time, we'll be here.


M Half-orc Brawler 1 {HP 12/12; AC16, T12, FF14; F+4 R+4 W+1; Init+2; Perc+5} {Effects: none}

Always a sad day when a beloved member of the family passes. Hope things look up for you soon.


Proposed Detect Magic change:

Here is a portion of the current description:

Current:
You detect magical auras. The amount of information revealed depends on how long you study a particular area or subject.

1st Round: Presence or absence of magical auras.

2nd Round: Number of different magical auras and the power of the most potent aura.

3rd Round: The strength and location of each aura. If the items or creatures bearing the auras are in line of sight, you can make Knowledge (arcana) skill checks to determine the school of magic involved in each. (Make one check per aura: DC 15 + spell level, or 15 + 1/2 caster level for a nonspell effect.) If the aura eminates from a magic item, you can attempt to identify its properties (see Spellcraft).

Here is my proposal:

Proposal:
You detect magical auras. The amount of information revealed depends on the results of a Knowledge (arcana) skill check. When using this spell, you may make an untrained Knowledge (arcana) check.

Know (arcana) DC: Information Gained
Know (arcana) 05: Number of auras in spell’s area of effect
Know (arcana) 10: Strength of auras, active vs. lingering
Know (arcana) 15: Location of each aura, schools of magic causing each aura
Know (arcana) 20: Effect or spell used to create each aura

Please let me know if this seems like a workable alternative. This is just a suggestion, and I am open to other ideas.

Thanks

This looks like a good alternative for PbP. Let's try it out.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Oracle of Life 4

I'm okay with it, though it means Alexei's going to be pretty meh at detecting magic. Oh well, I can always Aid Other Korvus when he does it.


I had not considered the opportunity to Aid Another using it, but I really like that idea.

If no other issues, I'll post it the updated version to the Campaign Info tab and we'll start using it.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Oracle of Life 4

We are a lean, mean, magic-detecting two-man-machine.


Holiday Hours
For those who might not know, USA Thanksgiving is this Thursday, November 22. I’m heading out of town, so I will not be posting on Thursday, Nov 22 or Friday, Nov 23. Everything should return to normal on Saturday, Nov 24.

If anybody else is traveling and/or celebrating, please be safe, and enjoy the holiday.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Oracle of Life 4

Totally cool, hope you and your family enjoy yourselves!

My family is all close by, so we're just doing Thanksgiving dinner at my Uncle's house. I need to remember to not wear my belt too tight! ;)


No belts for me either. :)

-----

Here is something I posted to another one of my games and they liked it. Figured I'd show it to this group to see if it's something you might be interested in trying. It's a change to the Channel Energy rules used by my home group:

Basically, a character who channels energy doesn't pick a heal or harm option. Channeling energy causes a 30' burst of either positive or negative energy (selected at character creation). The energy either heals or harms anybody in that radius.

We also allow characters to use channel energy as a ray instead of a burst. The ray is close range, single target, same dice as the burst.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Oracle of Life 4

Do you mean that if I pick Channel Positive Energy (obviously I would!) it will heal the party while damaging undead at the same time? Because that would be amazing.


Character Sheet

Interesting...

Does the ray version do full damage without allowing a save for half?


@Alexei: Yes, that's correct.

@Bjorn: Yes, ranged touch to hit, no save. If the attack misses, still used one of the channel attempts.


Character Sheet

Sounds good to me!


Male Human (Chelaxian) Oracle of Life 4

Wow, yes, I would love that. It'd also give me far more reason to use it, because I was sorta just saving it for when everyone really needs healing.
