Merry Christmas team! Thanks for contributing to one of my most refreshed sites! Have a dang Happy New Year too!
Indeed, hope everyone's holidays have been going well. Hard to believe this campaign started just near 9 years ago now. Thanks everyone for sticking around, especially Geedra who is the last OG player, haha! I'm hopeful that we can make some good headway in 2023. I've been thinking about trying to put myself on a more regular schedule when it comes to posting to move things along - nothing strict as to dictate everyone posts or anything, but just so there can be some good DM momentum going on a regular basis to keep thing from falling into stasis for a week or whatever. I'll probably try and maintain at least 3 posts a week, and additionally be a bit quicker in moving combat along.
But anyway, thanks again, and happy almost new year.
And that doesn't sound fun, Geedra. Hopefully a routine procedure with no complications!
I think from Krosh's hints, we're just supposed to engage with the apparition? Maybe follow it?
I don't think that we are supposed to be clever here, blunt confusion might be the order of the day.
Yeah, this is a weird encounter. I changed it some because it is exceptionally poorly designed in its original form. Mithas is on the right track. From Krosh's advice you need to play a part - go along with the maddened dream's twisted reality - as opposed to trying to explain things in a sensible way. Fortunately the first diplomacy check was good and prevented her from becoming hostile. You can make Bluff or Diplomacy checks moving forward - and from what the raven said, you only need to uncover this dream's desire, not necessarily help it find peace or anything.
Hey as to the Aegis of Recovery from GM’s 12-28-22 post, it looks like Skane is wearing a natural armor amulet in his neck spot. Do one of the rest of you want to make a claim for the aegis? Someone needs to be wearing it.
Slammed at work gang, will be mid-week before I'm likely clear of the madness and headaches of offshore oil.
Please bot Skane as necessity arises.
Work continues to stymie me folks - be the weekend now before my decks are cleared and I'm mentally reset enough to resume.
Quick question, for the PbP vets (I say a couple years in...), is there any recourse for an ally dropping a monster unbeknownst in the turn order/an open initiative, and the following poster/PC switches targets? I get its a bit convoluted with a companion.... but say I drop an enemy with the first post and the squad is up, is it (un)usual to retcon the attacks as posted to a 'non-dead' option (as though last person clearly nailed a 1hp narratively monster)?
Given my semi split init. would it make sense for me/or following PCs to switch targets (ready an action) or am I getting ahead of myself Woodsmoke?
Yeah, if there is another target in range I will just redirect, but you can also feel free to say in a follow up post if you'd like to do something else with the information that the target is down, or if there is a specific target you'd like to redirect to if multiple are in range. If there are no targets in range, I'll treat it as a readied action (as in the current post - can't waste that crit!). Obviously these situations will not always be seamless and there are a lot of variables but we will take them as they come.

Thanks team. I love the ability to ponder my actions but sometimes the vagaries of PbP make me miss the table too. Definjtely appreciate the readied crit though WS!
Uhhhh back to the hut team? Doesn't seem like we can outrun these guys and damn if we can survive many more half health swings... Guess we bring this one down then... Try Ratibor instead?
