Thank you so much for letting me join in! Been wanting to run this AP forever and so far have managed to avoid reading it so I can be surprised :)

Btw timing is almost perfect. Been traveling and not online much but about to get on a plane home. I'll do introductory post when I get home late tonight.

Hey Pauljathome,

I had a similar problem with the Avatar select screen.

This website feedback thread helped me get a work around with choosing avatars.

Try these work-arounds


Female Human Ranger 2 Barb 1 | HP: 24/30 | AC: 16 T:12 FF:14| CMD:18 | F:+7 R:+4 W:+1 | Init:+2 | Perc:+7 | Speed: 40' |

Aw man Niralzi you are from Karcau too! *lawls* i wonder if i recognize you.


True Neutral Female Tiefling Investigator (Empiricist) 3 | HP 22/25 | AC 14 (T11/FF13) | Init +1 | Perc +9 | Speed 30' | CMB +5 | CMD 16 | F+4 R+4 W+3 | extracts created: None | extracts slots remaining: 2/4 | Inspiration: 4/4 | Active Conditions: None

Quick two questions for the group, in terms of organizing and tracking things.

GM: Are you planning on using XP to level or are you using waypoints?

Group: How do we want to handle loot? We could divvy stuff out immediately or track it as a group and use anything not actively in use as a group pool of items/cash. That way we could pool all the gear/items and maybe divide cash by 6 - equal shares for each and an extra share for things like lodging/travel/bribes/etc (I'm willing to do a group tracking sheet that GM Sarah could link up near the maps if we want to do it the second way)


True Neutral Female Tiefling Investigator (Empiricist) 3 | HP 22/25 | AC 14 (T11/FF13) | Init +1 | Perc +9 | Speed 30' | CMB +5 | CMD 16 | F+4 R+4 W+3 | extracts created: None | extracts slots remaining: 2/4 | Inspiration: 4/4 | Active Conditions: None

Oh - also, since Sisu keeps a journal of everything from research notes and ideas to daily occurrences and thoughts, I'll be keeping a campaign journal as well. If anyone needs a refresher on past activities or information learned throughout the AP, just ask her.


I won’t be tracking Xp but I will make sure to let you know when to level up when we get to certain points :)

In regards to loot I okay with however you all want to divy it up. I have created a spreadsheet on google docs that I can link at the top if we want to keep it on there :)

Thank you for using waypoints lol. Honestly in a PbP remembering to add xp after every encounter gets irritating I much prefer it this way.

Off of work today and first time Investigator so doing a lot of research...and also asking a lot of questions. Seems that I can copy spells into my formula book from other spellbooks or scrolls much like wizards can as long as they are on the Investigator formula list, but unfortunately wizards cannot copy from formulas.

Malakos: If by chance you have any spells in your spellbook that I wanted to copy, would you be OK with that even though I can't return the favor?

GM : If there's any NPCs that have spellbooks, would we be able to copy spells from them (assuming they are friendly plus a diplomacy check or pay gold or whatever you wish)

Yeah that’s fine by me, Malakos is an evoked wizard so he’ll primarily be taking evocation spells. But I’ll be taking the occasional support spell as well. His opposition schools are Enchantment and Illusion.

We can also go halves-y on buying scrolls later on to put into our spell/formulae books.

The idea being we buy a scroll, I add it to my book and then you add it from my book to yours.


True Neutral Female Tiefling Investigator (Empiricist) 3 | HP 22/25 | AC 14 (T11/FF13) | Init +1 | Perc +9 | Speed 30' | CMB +5 | CMD 16 | F+4 R+4 W+3 | extracts created: None | extracts slots remaining: 2/4 | Inspiration: 4/4 | Active Conditions: None

That works great. Anything we can both use I'd be happy to split the cost. I'm also looking at buying a formula alembic as soon as I can find one, so that I can add potions we find into my list and then be able to manufacture them. Best part of that is it doesn't even destroy the potion.

It's only a 200g item so hopefully will be available in even smaller towns like Ravengro

There is a feat I can take at 5th level that lets me copy alchemist formulas I may consider taking it


True Neutral Female Tiefling Investigator (Empiricist) 3 | HP 22/25 | AC 14 (T11/FF13) | Init +1 | Perc +9 | Speed 30' | CMB +5 | CMD 16 | F+4 R+4 W+3 | extracts created: None | extracts slots remaining: 2/4 | Inspiration: 4/4 | Active Conditions: None

I was looking at the party composition. She'll always be a knowledge/spellcraft skillmonkey due to the nature of the class, but I can take Sisu in several directions as we level. My original plan was to go in the Diplomacy/Perception/Sense Motive direction as it fits her background better but since we don't have a rogue-ish character I can start hitting the sneak/disable device/sleight of hand skills harder if it makes sense. I don't think we even have anyone else trained in disable device.

If you guys want me to do that let me know before we level. I don't have anything against the idea but I'm big into character development and RP so I'll have to figure out how to incorporate her increased interest in that area. I don't want to just meta-game a "the party needs it" without developing the character.

Female Fletchling Bard(Silver Balladeer)3 | AC 15, T 13, FF 12 | HP 21/21 | F +2, R +6, W +1 | Init +6 | Perc +2 |

Niralzi should be able to help with knowledge and diplomacy skills - not as much with perception or sense motive. Disable device would be great. I'm sure we'll manage regardless - do whatever's more fun for you :)


True Neutral Female Tiefling Investigator (Empiricist) 3 | HP 22/25 | AC 14 (T11/FF13) | Init +1 | Perc +9 | Speed 30' | CMB +5 | CMD 16 | F+4 R+4 W+3 | extracts created: None | extracts slots remaining: 2/4 | Inspiration: 4/4 | Active Conditions: None

I won't have to sacrifice the knowledge stuff, I already get free inspiration (+1d6) on every roll for that as an investigator. The next step is to get free inspiration added to all my social skills or to add it to sneak/disable device. I'm thinking I'll go the latter route since an extra d6 on every sneak and disable roll is probably more useful with no rogue in the party. Both paths are fun and neither one takes away from what I already have, so that's not a worry :)


True Neutral Female Tiefling Investigator (Empiricist) 3 | HP 22/25 | AC 14 (T11/FF13) | Init +1 | Perc +9 | Speed 30' | CMB +5 | CMD 16 | F+4 R+4 W+3 | extracts created: None | extracts slots remaining: 2/4 | Inspiration: 4/4 | Active Conditions: None

This is too much fun. I like mysteries and puzzles, and a mystery via PbP is even better because I can take my time cross referencing what info we have while we wait for people to post.


Yay!! Im so glad you are enjoying it!! tbh I was pretty nervous about doing a PbP so im glad you are having fun!! :D


Female Human Ranger 2 Barb 1 | HP: 24/30 | AC: 16 T:12 FF:14| CMD:18 | F:+7 R:+4 W:+1 | Init:+2 | Perc:+7 | Speed: 40' |

I will be out of town starting the 30th of October to about the 4th of November. Please Bot me as necessary. I will have phone access to posting though the area i am traveling too cell reception is spotty.


thank you for letting me know :)

Oh we'll bot you all right. By the time you get back Chellian will have had a complete turn of heart, no longer be insecure about her reading, be a huge bookworm and our best researcher :D


Female Human Ranger 2 Barb 1 | HP: 24/30 | AC: 16 T:12 FF:14| CMD:18 | F:+7 R:+4 W:+1 | Init:+2 | Perc:+7 | Speed: 40' |

Heh! Sure sure, im open to all of that *lawls*

Well I built Sisu as a "if there's something to learn she'll just keep pushing no matter what" type character....

After that fun with the gate then her traipsing right back in I have a feeling she's gonna be dead by lvl3 lol


True Neutral Female Tiefling Investigator (Empiricist) 3 | HP 22/25 | AC 14 (T11/FF13) | Init +1 | Perc +9 | Speed 30' | CMB +5 | CMD 16 | F+4 R+4 W+3 | extracts created: None | extracts slots remaining: 2/4 | Inspiration: 4/4 | Active Conditions: None

Anyone know if Chellian is back online or if we're botting her this round? She said "around" the 4th she'd be back.


Female Human Ranger 2 Barb 1 | HP: 24/30 | AC: 16 T:12 FF:14| CMD:18 | F:+7 R:+4 W:+1 | Init:+2 | Perc:+7 | Speed: 40' |

Just about to post actually sorry for the delays

No worries! There actually hasn't been a delay at all :)


True Neutral Female Tiefling Investigator (Empiricist) 3 | HP 22/25 | AC 14 (T11/FF13) | Init +1 | Perc +9 | Speed 30' | CMB +5 | CMD 16 | F+4 R+4 W+3 | extracts created: None | extracts slots remaining: 2/4 | Inspiration: 4/4 | Active Conditions: None

Just found out I have to take an emergency trip. I should be back by Sunday evening. I'm unsure how much I'll be able to be online but I'll try to post from my phone. If I'm holding up combat feel free to bot me.


Thanks for the update! things usually slow a bit over the weekend anyways so I'm not too worried :)

OK since we're headed back into town, I went back through my notes. Here's what I see that we could do right now. The first two are pretty concrete, the second two seem important to me but I might be jumping at clues that aren't very important.

1) Go to the temple of Pharasma and ask about the cache that the Professor mentioned. Either get access through them, or search for it if they plead ignorance (probably need good diplomacy or whatever that trust mechanic is to get access)
2) Find some odd jobs to do in town to increase "trust". Might open up other options
3) Research so far mentioned 5 infamous criminals that came to Ravengro right before the fire. That weird song also seemed to talk about 5 killers. Maybe do more research see if we can find out anything about them, as they seem to be the catalyst that started all the weirdness. Not sure if we'll find anything in town about them, that might be info we get in the prison but worth trying
4) Look more into the desecration of the monument. Not sure what else we could do other than talk to the police about it. Maybe it's going to be something that continues and we might have to wait til later to get more info.

We obviously don't have to do any of them, we could rest and go back to the prison, where we can go in the back door that was guarded by the nasty thing, or right in the front which might be less stressful (or might be a trap)
Figured I'd throw this here since it's easy to forget things in PbP when it might be days or longer IRL to do one day in game so things mentioned in game are pages back in the thread. We can discuss it here, or bring ideas up in character, either way. I'll repost this occasionally if I see more options that show up during play


This is a great recap! And all of these are great options! Obviously you guys can pick what you want. I’m just here to help tell the story. So just tel me and I’ll move us that way :)

Ps I’m having so much fun with the game and I hope you all are too!

I'm down for heading back to the Church and looking for the Cache


True Neutral Female Tiefling Investigator (Empiricist) 3 | HP 22/25 | AC 14 (T11/FF13) | Init +1 | Perc +9 | Speed 30' | CMB +5 | CMD 16 | F+4 R+4 W+3 | extracts created: None | extracts slots remaining: 2/4 | Inspiration: 4/4 | Active Conditions: None

That's my vote too. I think that and raising trust in the town are the logical next couple of things.


Female Human Ranger 2 Barb 1 | HP: 24/30 | AC: 16 T:12 FF:14| CMD:18 | F:+7 R:+4 W:+1 | Init:+2 | Perc:+7 | Speed: 40' |

The church, the cache, helping the townsfolk. *nods* sounds like a solid plan.

Hey guys, I'm gonna be travelling for work for about 10 days, I will have pretty spotty service but am committed to posting while away. If I don't post for a day or so though please bot me.

Hopefully you guys don't even notice a change in behavior though, that is my goal!


True Neutral Female Tiefling Investigator (Empiricist) 3 | HP 22/25 | AC 14 (T11/FF13) | Init +1 | Perc +9 | Speed 30' | CMB +5 | CMD 16 | F+4 R+4 W+3 | extracts created: None | extracts slots remaining: 2/4 | Inspiration: 4/4 | Active Conditions: None

Group Vote!

Head back to Harrowstone, or build trust in town?
Sisu is honestly up for either, so she'll abstain right now and then just vote if there is a tie.

Also - Arrows to Niralzi, 2 CLW potions to Chellian and 1 each to the rest of you (not me since I have extracts), Rahela can hold onto the restoration potions until needed, 1 haunt siphon to each non-melee, and Sisu holds onto the board/planchette? Sound like a plan?

(If there is not any objection or alternate plan by tomorrow evening (about 24 hours or so) I say we just go with this distribution of loot and head to Harrowstone since it's currently winning the vote 2 to 1 based on the gameplay thread)

Just a heads-up. I'll be heading to visit family from Sunday through Wednesday, and I just found out they have no Internet (they just moved), so I'll be phone only for that period. I'll still be able to post but might be short ones on an irregular basis


I will also be traveling on Monday and probably wont post on the holiday!

Safe travel to you all, and Happy holidays! :)

Sorry for the radio silence. Had to spend a few days in the hospital from a terrible bout of flu and dehydration. >.<

Ouch. Hope that you're ok now.

Also hope that you either have Health Insurance or live in a country where you don't NEED health insurance :-) :-)


Female Human Ranger 2 Barb 1 | HP: 24/30 | AC: 16 T:12 FF:14| CMD:18 | F:+7 R:+4 W:+1 | Init:+2 | Perc:+7 | Speed: 40' |

Medically retired military so its awkward. I have insurance but man the VA is terrible.


Hey guys! Sorry for the delay in posting our vacation as been so busy! I’m carving out time and will be posting tomorrow! I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Years!


HP 21/21 | Fort +2 Ref +3 Will +7 AC 15 | Init +4 | Per +4 Female Duskwalker Shaman 3

No worries. Everything dies over the holidays :-)


hey guys!!! Lets take the next couple days to level up to 2 and if you have any questions let me know. I also just wanted to check in with you all and see how you all are doing, and if you have any comments or anything for me as a GM. I'm really enjoying this game and im ready for us to head to Harrowstone if that's where the party wants to go!! :)


Female Human Ranger 2 Barb 1 | HP: 24/30 | AC: 16 T:12 FF:14| CMD:18 | F:+7 R:+4 W:+1 | Init:+2 | Perc:+7 | Speed: 40' |

How are we doing hitpoints?

Going to do the level-up in a couple hours. Also wondering about HP. Should we roll for them or do the average?


For HP I like to to average HD +1
For prepared spell casters - you’d get your new spells the next day
For spontaneous casters- you’d get your spells right away.

So once you all are leveled up you can deciyas a party what we want if that’s hanging out at Kendra’s and then back into the mystery of harrowstone the next day- whatever you guys want :)


Female Human Ranger 2 Barb 1 | HP: 24/30 | AC: 16 T:12 FF:14| CMD:18 | F:+7 R:+4 W:+1 | Init:+2 | Perc:+7 | Speed: 40' |
