26/32/38 - 22/25/28

Okay guys, we've got a high number of TBA PCs in this group, so let's start getting that all straightened out so we have a modicum of party balance :)

Shadow Lodge

Male Human, probably TPK Causer 4 / GM of Repute 6 / Troublemaker 2

Checking in - I have in tier (or roughly since we're at "that spot").

Melee character 8 (Various classes, can fill any melee or skill role missing)

Illusionist Oracle 9

Barbarian 7

Two different Bards 9

Grand Lodge

Male CG Undine Wizard 9 | HP 74+14/74 | AC 13+4 T 13 FF 10+4 | CMB +2, CMD 15 | F: +9, R: +9, W: +9 | Init: +4 (+8 with H. Awareness) | Perc: +11, SM: +2 | Speed 30ft (Swim 30) | Active conditions: Overland Flight, Mage Armor, False Life

Undiana Jones - Undy to his friends - is a Wizard with some debuffing shenanigans. He's currently playing in the 8-99C Special but I believe we'll finish that before this game starts.


As a heads up I am using a GM star to replay this.

Characters available lvl 7-9:

9 Touching Frost Sorcerer
9 Abadarian Wealth Mage
9 Ratfolk Lightning Blaster
9 Jeweled Sage Bard/Melee Badass
7 First World Summoner
8 Suli Hellknight
8 Fire Shaman Blaster
8 Occulist Melee Monster
9 Pirate Chosen of Gozreh
7 Psychic Mind Blaster

I think I might have a problem...

Silver Crusade

Venture Agent French-speaking Play by Post | Dad (theologian) 3 | French-speaking pbp ?

Hi there! I have:

7 human multiattacks barb/ranger (melee stuff)
7 human cleric (support/heal)
8 ifrit oracle of flame (blast and debuff)

Grand Lodge

Half-Elf Gunslinger (Mysterious Stranger) 1/Oracle (Dual-Cursed, Lunar) 8 | HP 70/70 | AC 23^ | T 15^ | FF 18 | CMD 21^ | F +10$ | R +11$^ | W +10$ | +2 vs. enchantment, +4 vs. disease | Init +6$ | Perc +15$ (low-light) | Sense Motive +5$ | Grit 5/6 | Moonlight Bridge 6/6 | Fortune 0/1 | Spells: Level 1: 6/8; Level 2: 5/8; Level 3: 0/6, Level 4: 2/4 | Reroll 1/1 | Active Spells: Ant Haul, Air Walk, Blessing of Fervor(^), Prayer($)

GM Andrew here.

Looked through my characters and didn't get really excited about any of them this time except for this dude. He's just a caster with a gun and a tiger. (And his attack bonuses are low enough he could actually miss with a gun!)

He usually casts Prayer and Bless and then shoot things or heals people with spells.

You think he'd be great at Diplomacy, but his curse makes it not so. He's an intimidater!


Large Tiger (HD 8) | HP 76/76 | AC 28*+ | T 15+ (19 incorporeal)* | FF 23*+ | CMD 28+ | F +10$ | R +12$+ | W +5$ | +4 vs. enchantment | Init +5$ | Perc +7$ (low-light, scent) | Active Spells: Prayer($), Mage Armor(*), Reduce Animal(+)

And here's the tiger!

Shadow Lodge

Male Human, probably TPK Causer 4 / GM of Repute 6 / Troublemaker 2

I just played all three at SkalCon this last weekend - I'll sit down tomorrow and apply chrons. Since it sounds like we have casting covered, it'll be either:

Burngar - The Dwarven barbarian (8) of love and armor spikes

Davorin - The Brilliant Planning we'll just say "fighter" (8) (in actuality he could also fill the missing rogue role, and any other roles other than wizard that may be missing.

or if everybody wants to play fighters...

Rowlan (my -2 if you can believe it): Battle Herald bard (9) that does double duty on inspiring (yes it's possible)

Marzenek: The bard (9) with no weapon (except Gamin, that resents the fact that Marzenek calls himself the bard with no weapon).

Sovereign Court

Ok then, I'll choose the oracle of flame.

This guy is a lot to fun to play and just came back from Ralzelros' mind. ^^

I'll update his sheet next week.


Slanky: I think I'll go with my bard 9 Jeweled Sage/Melee Badass if you want to go Burngar or Savorin for a front liner.

26/32/38 - 22/25/28

Okay guys, the scenario proper hasn't started yet, but as part of mustering you can go ahead and introduce yourself as the s##! begins to hit the fan, as well as start some useful tasks!

Grand Lodge

Male CG Undine Wizard 9 | HP 74+14/74 | AC 13+4 T 13 FF 10+4 | CMB +2, CMD 15 | F: +9, R: +9, W: +9 | Init: +4 (+8 with H. Awareness) | Perc: +11, SM: +2 | Speed 30ft (Swim 30) | Active conditions: Overland Flight, Mage Armor, False Life

Are we already starting? My PC is still playing the Special, which I believe is about to wrap up, and then I'll need to level him up. What's the date you would like us to be ready to go by?

Undy & Riddy engage in some shenanigans built around a particular teamwork feat, Elemental Commixture. It's a bit complex so I've written up a summary that you can find here. Let me know if you have any questions.


26/32/38 - 22/25/28

The official start is October 1st, so you're still good. Love the Commixture cheat sheet by the way.

Grand Lodge

Half-Elf Gunslinger (Mysterious Stranger) 1/Oracle (Dual-Cursed, Lunar) 8 | HP 70/70 | AC 23^ | T 15^ | FF 18 | CMD 21^ | F +10$ | R +11$^ | W +10$ | +2 vs. enchantment, +4 vs. disease | Init +6$ | Perc +15$ (low-light) | Sense Motive +5$ | Grit 5/6 | Moonlight Bridge 6/6 | Fortune 0/1 | Spells: Level 1: 6/8; Level 2: 5/8; Level 3: 0/6, Level 4: 2/4 | Reroll 1/1 | Active Spells: Ant Haul, Air Walk, Blessing of Fervor(^), Prayer($)

Ralph will get a Scroll of Air Walk for 2 PA. And yes, Angel knows the Air Walk trick.

Undy's current scenario has now officially ended. I'll try to get him leveled up by this weekend and should be ready to go whenever we start.

Grand Lodge

Male CG Undine Wizard 9 | HP 74+14/74 | AC 13+4 T 13 FF 10+4 | CMB +2, CMD 15 | F: +9, R: +9, W: +9 | Init: +4 (+8 with H. Awareness) | Perc: +11, SM: +2 | Speed 30ft (Swim 30) | Active conditions: Overland Flight, Mage Armor, False Life

GM, do you want my familiar to roll initiative separately or go on my initiative?

Riddy, Aid Another, Craft Sushi sous chef, DC 10: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (1) + 8 = 9 Riddy was apparently distracted...
Day Job, Craft (Sushi), boons: 1d20 + 15 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 15 + 7 = 30 75 gp

Intimidate (caravan vanity), Dayjob: 1d20 + 20 ⇒ (16) + 20 = 36 100 gp


26/32/38 - 22/25/28

Normally with a Faerie Dragon I'd say separate, but in a timed PBP special.... go ahead and take Riddy's turn on Undiana's initiative.

I'm assuming the same for animal companions then?


26/32/38 - 22/25/28

Yeah. It's a kludge, but it's one I just accept as a quirk of the format - especially 'cause it typically favors the players.

If it makes you feel better, Ralph and Angel have the same initiative bonus anyway. XD

I'll go ahead and go Sovereign Court later tonight (just 'cause its the most represented Faction with their mission undone) unless I hear otherwise :)

That works for me. Undy is Grand Lodge (which we've already done) but happy to do whatever you think will be the most fun or interesting.

(Random Musing) Also, don't know who here has read any of the Mistborn novels, but I just finished book 1 of Wax & Wayne not too long ago and I am totally taking inspiration from Wayne to roleplay Ralph. He's not built like Wayne (I'd need WAY more diplomacy, bluff, and disguise), but he is one of my favorite characters in any book series.

Okay guys - we've got an Aid Token still, and now that we're in a new stage of the special let's try to use it this encounter!

Ours is not boosted, correct? In which case, I suggest that we use the Allied Offensive boost on this encounter. I think that with the golem's magic immunity we are going to need the melee folks to do as much damage as possible...

Hey everyone, my wife is in pre-labor. We have a few moments of calm now but I don't know when I'll be able to post the next time.
If Dioneo holds things up, please bot him either with heal or buff, if he has anything left.
