These d20s are being nasty to you!


I was kind of hoping Bathos would need Matthias's help. Ah, well. The point was to show those guards what an epic character can do. I really like how Matthias handled this!

Please let me know what more I/we can do to make subsequent PbP encounters run more smoothly.


Hm.. I think we should perhaps put Bathos and Matthias on the same initiative. Most of the time is spent between are posts, and those doubles the number of handoffs. Sound wise?


That makes sense :). Since it's a solo campaign and Matthias and Bathos share a strong bond, how about you just roll for both their initiatives and take the higher? The alternative is to average their modifiers and roll once, but I like the idea that one can alert the other. Basically a free teamwork feat.


I like that. I hate the fact that that teamwork feat, lookout, requires you to be adjacent. What b@@~+&#$.

I'm really enjoying this dude! I like to slow but consistent play too.


Dude, wonderful description of Moltenen and her possessions. I felt like I walked into that room.


Aw, thanks! Doing my best :).

I like this guy, too! Matthias is a badass.


I had a long, lovely post from Moltenen written and my computer died. AAAARRRRGGGHHH. I'll have the will to rewrite it when I get home. Gaaaaah


Ugh, that sucks! A good post takes time with all that formatting.


Yeah, sorry it's been slower this week. Bit stressful at work. Everyone is (gently and good-naturedly) making fun of me because of this. It's not technically my fault, since our tests didn't cover this, but I kind of caused a production breakage ... and it made it on Reddit.


Hehe it sucks that you might be partly responsible. But at the same time it makes me really proud that your mistakes could cause such an impact. Good job at breaking important s*$!!


Hahahahaaha, thanks! I feel a mixture of pride and shame. It is good.

Gonna try to post a bit tonight. Trying to push some code before I go home. How's work going your way?


Psst. Post


psst hey. psst.


I'm trying to figure out how Matthias feels about sex after his experience with Ahlysaaria. I feel like he might have blamed his lust for the event. I'm wavering on he's cool with sex in general, but any women he finds substantially desirable unnerves him and he avoids. Or he simply has avoided that part of his life for now. Your thoughts?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Dude, I'm glad this is happening again. It is so much f$#@ing fun.

That makes a lot of sense. With mercy, the tenderness of sensuality has been eroded from Matthias's spirit, like soft loam from windswept bedrock. 'S okay. Where the soil has once been rubbed away, strong roots may yet enter and soften stone. How do you perceive him?


I wanted to get you to Silverfall, but the dice may have decided you get an encounter before then ...


dude.. If that spoiler nat 20 occurs let me know what item it is. I'd like to figure out the carving in more detail.


I gave you a few options; let me know if they seem good. I'm imagining a big, beautiful decorative shield or something for a motif like that. Seriously, that's within range for outsiders to notice, man!!! Pretty sweet!


Psst.


Sorry, prepping the encounter! https://docs.google.com/a/google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WsGW8MAjNMzi29PP2dEui1 PciPVsQLQfVd4XOdFjxuU/edit?usp=sharing


you gotta use the link command. Otherwise they insert a random space. To prevent spammers upping their google results. That's a thing right?


I only have 1000 extra gold on my character sheet. Do all the jewels and gems that have been laid at my feet have value?


Matthias stands ready, will and skin hardened for the battle.


V true; you've definitely made X gold (and I completely know X). We can role play the haggling in parallel if you like. I'd also be comfortable calculating X and saying you talk the guy down to 1050 or so (still above the cost to create, and you're a big time hero around these dudes). Up to you!


One thing I'm realizing is that there are times I need to say something happens to reduce round trips, even if those things might need to change. For example, that guard just ran into the forest, but it might turn out that Matthias, seeing him about to do that, might tell him to hold. I'm absolutely willing to let that kind of thing change (with an n-post threshold on time rewinding). What do you think?


Sounds reasonable to me. Maybe spoiler things you think have a good chance to be retconned.

Also since we're not really tracking gold shall I just purchase the armor and not worry about it?


I'm a bit confused by the posts. I thought we decided to have Bathos and Matthias share initiative to make posting easier?

Has the smoke action happened yet? Are you asking for Bathos' first or second actions?

And I believe Bathos' permanent arcane sight should make isolating the halfling pretty much a non-issue. What do you think?


Ah, true. So Matthias and Bathos should be the same initiative.

Yes, I forgot about his arcane sight. Thanks for keeping me honest :).


So, let's say Bathos actually hit the halfling last time? We can forego the concealment roll? Sorry, I'm a bit disorganized :(.


Well, the arcane sight acts as detect magic, so I think concealment is fair. It's not hyper specific.

So is it there second round of turns?


Yes, second round, except you should also roll attack and damage against the halfling for Bathos. Retconning the concealment thing because of arcane sight. Then you can read "What will probably happen."


So, to be clear, it's

1) Roll Bathos's to-hit and attack;
2) Read the enemies' turn;
3) Take Matthias's and Bathos's second turns :).


I believe I rolled his to hit adn attack before concealment on a previous post.

And after reading arcane sight I think concealment is the right call. I believe I missed anyway.


The oldest Thread (of yours) I could find and post to.

Rise! Riiiiiiise!

You're welcome.
