How closely do you want me to keep track of arrows? Do I keep track of everything but normal arrows? Or keep tabs on those too?


Normal arrows not a big deal. The special arrows I would want tracked.

Heh, it’s funny seeing the contrasts between Marianne’s gear and Wamblee’s, my characters are always broke because I like to have a bunch of situational equipment.

I had to increase Samoon's strength because alchemical gear. And he doesn't have much cash to buy things to throw (alchemical fire, tanglefoot bags, etc) yet!

Well, first we have to deal with our dysfunctional family. :D


Perfectly alright to make some adjustments here and there - I'm not much of a stickler for "you made a mistake so live with it for the next three years!"

Thanks! We'll figure it out once we get adventuring. I have cash. I don't mind a little jolt of strength so Samoon can get a composite bow at some point. :)


Samen - I'm curious, how do you envision your tattoos? Is this like head-to-toe "Illustrated Man" type stuff with pictures? Are they more abstract, geometric? Text? Only a few here and there?

No, it's not pictures. It's all runes from the different archaic scripts of the different languages. They are not terribly dense, but they cover his body. Anywhere he can reach, anyway.


In particular, what language do you have on your face? Just trying to get an image, sorry if it's too many questions.

There's quite the contrast between the family styles.

Wamblee's minimals, Samen's tattoos, Samoon's robes, Marianne's airiness.

Big hints that we're a fractious bunch!

On his forehead, in Slyph: "SKY ABOVE"
On his chin, in Oread: "EARTH BELOW"
On his left cheek, in Ifrit: "FIRE BURNS"
On his right cheek, in Undine: "WATER FLOWS"

Across his nose, detectable only with magic, created with 'Arcane Mark', in common: "ELEN"


Let me know as a group what your approximate availability is over weekends. In my other tables, it seems normal for weekends to be slow/nonexistent, which is fine, we all need breaks. I want to make sure we don't leave anyone in the dust.

For sure I will be largely unavailable this Saturday (traveling)

I'm generally available, but less available. However, sometimes I'll go camping or something.

I don't have much of a life. I'm usually pretty available.

I can usually post once a day on weekends, but that isn't an absolute guarantee.


I know that Marianne already has her heirloom (the scroll). Do any of the rest of you have yours yet? Otherwise I can RP you receiving those gifts.

When did you get that scroll from Father, Marianne? A long time ago? Recently?

Up to you, GM! I was thinking that Samoon had it, but all according to your narrative...


Male LN Oread Monk (Student of the Stone) 5 | HP: 42/42 | AC: 16 (16 Tch, 10 Fl) | CMB: +10, CMD: 19 | F: +6, R: +6, W: +8 | Init: +1 | Perc: +11, SM: +9 Darkvision | Speed 30ft | Stunning Fist: 5/5, Ki 5/5 | Acid Resistance 5, DR 3/Adamantine | Active conditions: 0 non-lethal damage.

I suspect Wamblee's is not yet in his possession.

I was thinking we had all started with them, but I think it would mean more to Samen to receive it posthumously.


Ok, I like this.

--Samoon, you received yours from Father as you left town to study in Light.

--Wamblee did not receive his yet

--And neither has Samen

Apologies for my delay in posting in the gameplay thread. I had somehow missed that it was updating.

Sorry that I haven’t said anything on here, I have lately just had the gameplay thread open, so I missed stuff. I’m usually able to post more often on weekends, but my schedule varies by the week, so I am busy different times and days, but again, weekends I usually have more time.


No worries! I'm just really happy everyone is posting on Gameplay.

Games where the PCs are family can be tricky, since you'd expect a certain level of knowledge about each other. But bringing us in on the creative process has helped a lot with that.


I think it's been going great so far! Thank you all for taking the effort to write as siblings, and coming up with quirks and stories about each other.

An important question for Wamblee's reaction.

Are darkspawn known to have any weaknesses or especial resistances to damage? Wamblee has a variety of weapons, if not special materials.


Spawn aren't really known for resistances to bludgeoning or anything like that. They also vary somewhat from spawn to spawn (ones that look alike tend to have similar characteristics though)

Knowledge Arcana and Knowledge Planes are both good for identifying weaknesses of spawn. Knowledge Religion would require a tome or other resource to research to gain info about spawn.

Understood. I couldn't find many details about darkspawn in the campaign info. Been trying to work out what would be commonly known and what a learned person might know in addition.


Samen - to answer your question, did you get my PM about detect magic?


Male NG Oread Magus (staff magus)(Elemental Paragon) 5 | Arcane pool: 3/4 | HP: 38/38 | AC: 16 (12 Tch, 14 Fl) | BAB: 3, CMB: +8, CMD: 17 | F: +6, R: +4, W: +7 | Init: +2 | Perc: 2, SM: 2 | Speed 30ft | Active conditions: None. | Spells: 0th: Acid Splash, Detect Magic, Arcane Mark, Ray of Frost 1st: magic weapon 1/1, (Elemental) Frostbite 2/2, detect elementals 2/2 2nd: bladed dash 2/2, rock whip 1/1

Ah. No, I didn't. I wish that thing wasn't so subtle. Thanks.


If I don't hear from anyone else, I'll plan on updating tonight with the party going off the roads toward Forge.

Just to note, Wamblee's double-chained kama has both the reach and trip weapon properties. So by default for the time being, he'll try to trip incoming enemies if he sees them first.


How available/unavailable is everyone this upcoming weekend?

I'll be gone part of the day on Saturday, and I have company on Monday, but I will probably be able to get at least one post in each day.

No clue yet. I'll have some time to post. Er, that is to say, I'll be in town.

Apologies, I was occupied yesterday and had trouble catching up until now. This weekend my availability will be haphazard but I should be able to get at least one post in on both weekend days.


Female CG Sylph Ranger (Stormwalker) 3 | HP: 19/19 | AC: 15 (14 Tch, 11 Fl) | CMB: +4, CMD: 18 | F: +3, R: +8, W: +4 | Init: +4 | Perc: +8, SM: +2 | Speed 35ft | Active conditions: none

I should be available most or all of the weekend.


Now that the game is more officially "on", here's a quick rundown of the stuff under Campaign Info. Peruse as you will, certainly not required reading.

"Timeline etc" is where I try to keep a summary of each page so I can recall what happened twenty pages ago. NPCs and locations have entries too.

"Play by Post Formatting" is pretty standard stuff. I also list what to use for each of the languages, for those curious.

"Maps and Cities" is extremely Hearth-centered right now, as that's where I've spent the last two or three years' worth of campaigns in. More on Forge will be forthcoming :)

"Gods and Magic": Gods, the planes, and magic, as the title says. Also goes into cosmology (like elementals are roughly angels, and genies are roughly devils, since positive/negative and good/evil aren't as important as the basic elements)

"Society and History" is a mishmash of stuff, including clothing, because one of my other players was interested in that detail.

Speaking of which, if there's something that you are interested in that you don't see, feel free to inquire!

Plenty to look over! I'd like more details of the Dark, its servants, and the horrors in the wars against it.


I'll type up the notes I have on common knowledge regarding spawn sometime this weekend.

Point to ponder for the weekend: anyone else have a middle name besides Samen? It's really up to each of you.

Hadn’t thought of it, but I don’t see why she wouldn’t. Time to think one up on the fly... How about Emilia.


Updated the Dark entry to include basic characteristics of spawn and worshipers of the Dark. This is relatively basic stuff that anyone well-read or well-traveled such as yourselves would be likely to know (or not, if it doesn't fit in your background)

The Dark!


You can also find it under the "Gods and Magic" tab. I thought I had a link there to some very basic Dark info before, but I was wrong.

A heads up. Between friday 1st June and sunday 3rd June, I won't be available at all. My availability on the thursday and monday is also likely to be very limited. So realistically, I'm not likely to post much from Thursday May 31st until Tuesday June 5th.
