Wow! Good luck with the move!

It sounds like we have a great deal of RL activity going on right now, so I'm going to say temporary hiatus over the weekend. I'll update on Monday and bot anyone who hasn't had a chance to act.

Fair enough. And Iniga, good luck with your move!


Apologies - much busier days than I planned, unexpected visiting family (but at least it is family I like!)

I have been so slammed with work it hasn't even been funny. Moved rooms at work twice (we're finishing up a mixing room)--anyhow, I will try to post tomorrow. Sorry to be in absentia so long!

Not sure what it is, but we've all been busy! Thanks to everyone for posting when you can.

Today has been super-quiet for me, in wild contrast to the last few days.

I do appreciate the sentiment.

A note. Wamblee has both step up and stony step. So no easy escape for most enemies once he has closed the distance.


Appreciate the reminder!

I am back! Sorry about being gone, but it looks like everyone needed a break last week.


It's true!

Oh yes. This weekend has been blissfully quiet in comparison.

Samen - it seems like you get to re-orient your cone of detection every round. Under the spell description, it doesn't give an action, and I think making it standard or move would be ridiculous, so let's just call it a free action to move the cone before or after you move.


Planning on updating tonight. Samoon, let me know if you will have a chance to start posting again, otherwise I will be botting.

Yes, I should be a bit more available. Also, joke's on me--HLO doesn't support Pathfinder v1.0. I, Pagliaaaacciiii...

Catching up here, was occupied.


To be clear, who now has the baby elemental?

For a visual, Samoon ended up coating the interior of a simple glass jar with lead, calculating thickness based on the size on power of the elemental.

Samen would be very interested to keep possession of it.

Just want to make sure I understood this right GM

The priest wants the assistance of the oread tribes to deal with some mercenaries who are supporting rebellious thoughts against Inquisition. The box would provide an incentive to the tribes to listen or support the priest with this goal.

Do I have this right?


The priest is dithering, but this is ultimately a threat against the tribes. Wamblee mentioned this was a Knight with a famous flaming sword.

Yeah no I'm still lost. I'd like to respond to the priest but I still dont understand what he is saying.


He succeeded in being roundabout and annoying at least :)

You are right that he wants the tribes to help in putting down these mercenaries and perhaps other tasks he hasn't mentioned

He wants them to "see reason", but if they don't then he will use the Hand (in a way he has not directly stated) to "make them see reason in spite of themselves)

Being that this is a hero with a flaming sword from the past, the implication is some kind of fire-based attack, within Forest, if the tribes do not comply.

Ah, ok so it was about what I suspected. I'm on the same page now :)


:)


Samen, the bit you said in Gameplay about discussing elemental reproduction with Abbygailiwy - did that actually happen, or just an "offscreen" moment? I've been driving myself crazy trying to find that conversation, but it has eluded me.

(it's fine if it's just something you wanted to happen offscreen - totally reasonable, I just was curious)


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 1/2, detect elementals 1/2 2nd: bladed dash 2/2, rock whip 1/1

I seemed to recall asking her how elementals even reproduced when we were alone at the river. She didn't answer, but the question was still rattling around in his head. I'll see if I can find it...

UPDATE: So I found where I thought the conversation had happened, toward the top of page 34, but in reality I actually only got as far as asking about her associations with other elementals. I guess I was intending to take the conversation further, but didn't get the chance before she shut me down. It's funny how six months can alter one's memory of events.

Let's just say he got curious but didn't say anything.


Reasonable!

I will update with info for your check tomorrow, but for now it has been a busy weekend.


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: 4/5, Ki 4/5 | Acid Resistance 5, DR 3/Adamantine | Active conditions: 0 non-lethal damage.

So what do we know about the Inquisition?


The Firenzes would know little, outside of "an arm of the Temple, based mainly in Hearth, that deals with subterfuge, spying, torture, heresy, etc". Any stories that you heard of inquisitors would range from unpleasant to horrifying.


Iniga would know more, being based in Hearth in her background.

Let me know if there's anything specific you are looking for in terms of the Inquisition, Hearth, the Temple, etc.


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: 4/5, Ki 4/5 | Acid Resistance 5, DR 3/Adamantine | Active conditions: 0 non-lethal damage.

I realised I could have answered this.

Wamblee would be most interested in their sheer power. How much force can they bring to bear? And what sort? Much magic?


Samen, apologies I never gave you a direct response to that excellent knowledge planes earlier

1) you definitely know how to care for this elemental. Energy of the appropriate type to keep it "fed", and shielding it from any opposing energy (air/lightning energies in this case) are key

2) beyond that, you know in general that elementals "breed" in a way appropriate to their element: fire burns more ; trees grow with nutrients and time ; wind needs clear space ; and gems...would need very specific conditions to grow under. When you have more downtime, you can ask Samoon to help you out (he has nature and alchemy, and somewhere in there would be the know how on how to encourage gems and crystals to grow)

3) Finally, as with Abbygailiwy, use your "spellcraft" skill for directly interacting with Spes (asking it to do something, change its mood, etc)


Wamblee, Iniga is well-versed in Hearth "politics" (for lack of a better term) and it roughly boils down to this (this is't even a knowledge check, she just knows this stuff):

--The Army is really the organization with numbers and swords on their side, and soldiers are typically loyal to the city of Forge (there are also local Watches in Hearth that are technically part of the Army, but provide local law enforcement and tend to be more loyal to Hearth or even individuals within Hearth)

--The Temple, or more specifically the Inquisition, has some of the most powerful spellcasters in the land, and quite a few mid-power casters too, but not much in the way of martial power (except their personal Temple Guard). They also presumably have access to magical items (or could create their own) and knowledge.

So, in "short", it can get rather complicated because the Temple relies on the Army to wage the war against the Dark ; the Army needs the protection of spells from the Temple to survive on the Fronts ; and everyone needs the Dark to be contained or it will destroy everything.

The Temple also has other resources, as befits a very, very large organization: money, followers, connections, influence, etc.

Understood. So it is entirely plausible that they both would have relics of incredible power and the knowledge of how to use them.

Marvellous.

We have two conversations going right now, so I will plan on updating with a new in-game day tomorrow morning.

I really should try to recall abilities such as Hard as Stone and Strength of Stone.


I have likely been forgetting those as well. maybe a quick parenthetical note in your tagline, next to AC and CMD?


I'm planning on fast-forwarding through a bit more travel time soon.

Is there anything "active" any of you would like to accomplish in the remaining leg of the journey before Winter Meet? (active in this case means something you want to type out, talk to an NPC, maybe talk to the priest, etc)

Otherwise, let me know if these "passive" actions (things that you are doing that don't require any 'screentime') fit what you would like to do with our remaining time on the road:

--Wamblee - continue cultivating relationship with Odakotah, maybe meditate with crystal?

--Iniga - still scheming the best way to play the priest and mercs?

--Samen - indoctrinating, err, nurturing Spes?

--Samoon - doing your own experiments, etc? Or are you still interested in the priest as well?

I actually probably want to speak to the priest, because I think that there are opportunities there. I guess I could also talk to the mercs but I have made them pretty helpful / friendly so far.


Absolutely! He is currently trussed up in his wagon, under guard by the only merc aside from Margherita that isn't hungover.

We'll do that conversation even while "real time" is passing.

Meh to the priest. Samoon is going to find a dark hidey hole with which to confer with the wee light elemental.

Wamblee will do just that, balanced between the two.


oh, one other thing I wanted to mention - any who are interested, the oread warrior merchants have minor potions available, and a minor magic item or two as well.


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 1/2, detect elementals 1/2 2nd: bladed dash 2/2, rock whip 1/1

Yeah, Samen will definitely be teaching/playing/learning with Spes. It's way more interesting than anyone else around.

Any items of note?

Anything to improve defenses or hp would be great. :)

Perhaps a meditation tool?

Re: meditation - Oga--Odakotah's sister--hears you asking around, and offers you some incense to help with your meditations. It doesn't have any magical properties, but she says it helps when "the pressure and presence of other elen's minds is too great a burden to bear".

Damn. I've realised that I have no idea what wealth we have as a group.


I keep a google doc of wealth received, otherwise I would forget to ever give any. I think it is reasonably accurate. There are entries of actual gp received, and also the value of magical items/abilities gained.

4 healing potions from hag/witch: 50*4 = 200 gp August 2018
8000 gp = 2000 gp each October 2018
Cloak of +1 resist each = 1000 gp each October 2018
Cure moderate wounds and +1 Pug’ sword = (300+2000) =2400 = 600 gp each December 3
Wamblee gets +1 magical enhancement to fists for defeating earth elem April 13 2019
Burrowing boots for Samen - April 13 2019
Samoon free feat elec bombs
+1, Aspect of the Falcon for Mariane too April 13 2019 = 2000 gp each
April 22 +2 str, but only for one person so far. (Wamblee)
May 2 elemental-slaying dagger from Yuma to Wamblee
May 6 Abbygailiwy's kiss: invisibility once per day for Samen
Sept 5: wand of cure moderate wounds for ranger, 6000 = 1000 gp each
