Yeah the God Lord was looking out for us. We had some minor damage to siding. Chik-a-fil took major damage so Grayson and Zach are out of work for a couple weeks at least.

We are out of town and not seeing everything. Ben, what sort of help did you provide? Mostly church people or anyone who asked? Just you or a crew from church?

Hey guys just had a talk with dad who expressed his opinion on how the game is going. Everyone seems to still be enjoying the game but I want you guys to enjoy it it more. So in the future I'm gonna limit the NPC's with you guys in combat so you all feel more like heroes. I will also being make all my rolls in combat in a spoiler so my posts aren't gigantic all the time. So ill make the rolls there and then right better descriptions of what is happening in combat. Let me know your thoughts, and what else I can do to make the experience better for you guys.

So how was origins? Details for the geek deprived. Did you play version 2 ? whats your thoughts on it? how were the games?

No just played a bunch of deadly PF1 scenarios and it was mostly fun. A couple bad GMs but most were good. Also had a glorious day of True Dungeon!

We tired out PF2 during the playtest and there was a lot to like, but also a lot not to like. We’ll see how the final game turns out, but as of now I don’t know that we’ll switch.

Liberty's Edge

Overall, lots of fun at Origins. Although we had more good GMs than bad, I realized that I really like home games/Adventure Paths more than society play.
I’m with David on v2. Interested, but wary.


Map/Handouts / Player Resource / Fun Time Coin (Poppo, Bobie) / Day 27/ PC Affects (Shaken: Poppo, Turngut)

Home games/adventure paths definitely trump society play. I like an overarching story, not twenty different stories for one character.


Map/Handouts / Player Resource / Fun Time Coin (Poppo, Bobie) / Day 27/ PC Affects (Shaken: Poppo, Turngut)

I have officially cast all the major characters of this campaign.

Liberty's Edge

Awesome Ben! Looking forward to see this story play out!!


Map/Handouts / Player Resource / Fun Time Coin (Poppo, Bobie) / Day 27/ PC Affects (Shaken: Poppo, Turngut)

Thanks Craig! I think it will be pretty good.


Map/Handouts / Player Resource / Fun Time Coin (Poppo, Bobie) / Day 27/ PC Affects (Shaken: Poppo, Turngut)

Turngut HP: 1d10 ⇒ 9

Nalia HP: 1d8 ⇒ 8

Bobie HP: 1d8 ⇒ 8

Poppo HP: 1d8 ⇒ 5

Looks like another level of lots of HP.


Map/Handouts / Player Resource / Fun Time Coin (Poppo, Bobie) / Day 27/ PC Affects (Shaken: Poppo, Turngut)

So I've noticed multiple times in the PBP that people will go on these long streaks of rolling really really low. So I got the idea from a D&D podcast I listen to called the Fun Coin. Its like a bottle cap were you can roll two and take the better. You get the Fun Coin if you have three failed skill checks, attacks, or saves. You can only use the coin during that encounter and it goes away afterward. What do you guys think?


Map/Handouts / Player Resource / Fun Time Coin (Poppo, Bobie) / Day 27/ PC Affects (Shaken: Poppo, Turngut)

Dont forget you guys also roll and if we get a tie we have to roll again. And if you could put a link to a pdf of your character in your bias that would be good.

Liberty's Edge

I forgot that I get to roll too. Going to be hard to beat a 9.
So far, it's been 10, 10, 9, and at least another 9!
The Fun Coin sounds like a great idea! Rule of Fun :)

Turngut HP: 1d12 ⇒ 6

Liberty's Edge

I'm not sure how to link a pdf to the character page. Can anyone help me? I sent Turngut's level 4 PDF to Ben in the meantime.

@Craig - you can use [Url= {copy url here}] Turngut PDF, then close it with a normal /url in brackets.

Poppo HP: 1d8 ⇒ 4

Liberty's Edge

Thanks! pdf file linked in Turngut's profile.


Map/Handouts / Player Resource / Fun Time Coin (Poppo, Bobie) / Day 27/ PC Affects (Shaken: Poppo, Turngut)

Thanks Craig will help me keep better track of everyone characters.


I posted mine as well. Thanks for explaining how to do it. Worked pretty well :)

I think I'll just stick with your d8 role of 8, can't beat that!


Map/Handouts / Player Resource / Fun Time Coin (Poppo, Bobie) / Day 27/ PC Affects (Shaken: Poppo, Turngut)

Well you have to roll in case you also roll an 8 then we have to reroll.

Yeah bad luck Matt, 6 is decent though.

Liberty's Edge

Maybe Matt will get another 8!?!


Map/Handouts / Player Resource / Fun Time Coin (Poppo, Bobie) / Day 27/ PC Affects (Shaken: Poppo, Turngut)

Gotta admit, need to circle back around on the party finances. When we got back to town the last time, Craig was like Poppo's got it, but at the time David was sick as a dog and didn't much care...so I really need to look back and see...lol!

In the future, I think I'll try to do a google doc and add as we go.

Liberty's Edge

Your accounting is still miles more accurate than the rest of ours. Thanks David!!!

This is revised rules for the arcane fever since someone seems to be confused as to how it works. Sometimes referred to as the Blue Death arcane fever is poisonous magical energy that can affect someone. Arcane Fever is gained when encountering certain arcane crystals that emit this poisonous magic. A character if they wish can also cast more than their daily allowance of spells this however also makes arcane fever go up. Below is listed how much based on spell level your arcane fever can go up. The percentages doubles when a spell caster casts more than one above their daily allowance. For example if someone casts one level 1 spell above their daily allowance its only 3% arcane fever, but if they cast two the percentage doubles to 6%. This percentage increase continues to go up until the spell caster takes a long rest or gains back their spell slots.

Lvl 1 - 3% arcane fever
Lvl 2 - 6% arcane fever
Lvl 3 - 10% arcane fever
Lvl 4 - 20% arcane fever
Lvl 5 - 35% arcane fever
Lvl 6 - 45% arcane fever
Lvl 7 - 55% arcane fever
Lvl 8 - 65% arcane fever
Lvl 9 - 75% arcane fever
Lvl 10 - 99% arcane fever

Once you get to certain percentages of arcane fever this can start to affect your character

50% - You lose all of your highest spell slots, your health is reduced by 25%, and you take a -2 on attack, damage, skills, and saves. You can still however cast your highest level spell slots, but the arcane fever for doing this is tripled.

75% - You lose your second highest spell slots, your health is reduced by 50%, and you take a -4 on attack, damage, skills, and saves. You can still however cast your second highest level spell slots, but the arcane fever for doing this is tripled.

90% - You lose all spell slots, your health is reduced by 75%, and you take a -6 on attack, damage, skills, and saves. You can still however cast spells, but the arcane fever for doing this is tripled.

100% - Instant Death. You instantly die, see table below for what happens.

1-50: You explode into a magical ball of arcane energy, dealing 10d6 force damage and 10d6 arcane fever to everyone within 30ft of you.
51-99: You become a frenzied wild mage and must try to kill everyone you see and then yourself by any means necessary.
100: 80% arcane fever is transferred to the nearest creature as you die.

There are however ways to reduce arcane fever, by taking a long rest you lose 1% arcane fever. There is also potion called “Ambrosia” (1000GP) it is a rare potion that can occasionally be found at alchemist shops it acts as a potion of cure serious wounds while also reducing arcane fever by 25%.

Liberty's Edge

Is there any way, besides arcane crystals, for a non-arcane caster to take arcane fever? Like using daily limited class abilities?


Map/Handouts / Player Resource / Fun Time Coin (Poppo, Bobie) / Day 27/ PC Affects (Shaken: Poppo, Turngut)

No its strictly for arcane stuff, so unfortunately not for rage or other martial abilities. The arcane crystals are the most common way a non caster would get arcane fever, but their are other ways that you have not yet encountered.


Don't give him any other ideas on how to kill us!


Jon, Can you explain a float hunt? Sounds intriguing. You live on a barge or large vessel and float down a river? Shoot from the vessel and then eat it on the boat? Does your family go with you?

float hunt in some cases is floating down a river on a raft, camping on the shore and hunting the banks. We are pulling the rafts up river about 10 miles in, so 20 miles estimated with the contour of the river, in about 2 days. Then we will walk in to hunt from there. Glacier fed stream so @ 36-38 degree water temp. temperatures here from 20-30 at night and up to 50's in the daytime. Going in with 2 friends and one of their 11 year olds. It will be fun. Probably going to die but it will be fun.


What do you do with what you catch? Dry it? Salt it? Eat it right away? Hope you have fun and don't die!

How was the hunting? Did you have a good time with the friends and a good impact on the son? Any good adventure stories? Attacked by a yeti?

Pulled boats up 13 river miles we got charged by a grizzly. big old interior mountain griz. we shot him. the son did an awesome stalk on a moose but his dad got overexcited and told him to shoot a sub legal moose. Alaska legal is either a young moose with just a spike or fork or 50 inch antler spread. it was 46 inches in length so we had to haul it out. half a mile to the boat, then we had to break down 4 2 ft high beaver dams, all this at night with wolves howling coming in to where we killed the moose. we pulled out the next day, shot a legal forked moose next to the road and the next day, shot 7 caribou. carried one and a half out 3/4 of a miles then we pulled the boat around and just carried them up a large hill to the boat and rowed out. freezers full God blessed. sucks being the old guy who is out of shape.
spent about 40 hours or so this week cutting up meat.


Glad the freezer is full and no one was hurt
