Back from the long weekend, I can go either way on the map issue.

Gudada, I can take my next level as Ranger (trapper) if you’d like. Then I can assist you with the disable checks and whatnot.

Nah. Nobody beats the dice bot. Gudada's got the key skills, he just needs even average rolls.

Do what you want, though.

You can always Take 10 on the checks (both Perception and Disable Device) if you're not in a stressful situation.

Hey y’all, I need to apologize again for the absence. I’m still going through some rough stuff in my real life and haven’t been able to make PbP a priority. But I really do want to continue to participate. I’ve had a lot of fun so far and I want to get back to it.

I intended to post right now but my laptop must have accidentally gotten unplugged and is dead (I took it to the park for some peace and quiet and pleasant surroundings). I have my home adventure path group tonight but I fully intend on posting tomorrow and get back to posting regularly.

I do feel bad about my delays of late. It’s like the longer I wait, the worse I feel about wasting your time and the more I dread trying to get it done. Anyway, like I said, I fully intend to post tomorrow and continue posting regularly..


HR | MM | RotRL | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Just wanted to post this in all my games. Please bare with me over the next month. Some life stuff has complicated my schedule so my posting is a bit slower than usual if you haven't noticed :D.

Long story short, I'm not in my usual office at work, my work hours have changed for the summer and I have one of my graduate classes that meets 2 nights a week for 5 hours each night. Suffice to say its a little hectic. I will do my best to get in at least one post a day but it may be ever other day at least for the next few weeks.


Male Human Barbarian 2 HP: 15/25 (29) | AC 16 (14) | T 12 | FF 14 | CMD 18 (16) CMB +8 (+6) | F +6 | R +2 | W +0 (+2) | Init +2 | Per +4

Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for letting us know. Take the time you need, RL comes first!


HR | MM | RotRL | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Just an update. Only have 4 more classes left (2 more weeks) so should be able to start getting back into a more consistent posting routine again shortly after that.


HR | MM | RotRL | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Yay! Welcome to level 2 everyone.Go ahead and level up. New spells, HP, etc won't take effect until after you rest.


male Varisian Human | HP: 6/10 | AC14 (T13, F11) | Init+3 | Perc+6+ | CMB+0(3), CMD13 | F+1, R+5, W+1 | DD+9+, Bluff+5/Dip+5/SM+5, Know(Local)+6 Unchained Rogue 1 | Speed 30' | Sneak Attack+1d6; Trapfinding+1; | Active conditions: None.

Had to go back to the recruitment post to find the HP half+1 call. But I found it.

BAB+1
Ref+1

HP+7=+5 +1 Con +1 Favored Class

Evasion
Rogue Talent (opinions requested, see below)

Sill ranks in (continued, no changes): Acrobatics, Appraise, Bluff, Diplomacy, Disable Device, Escape Artist, Knowledge (Local), Perception, Perform (Stringed Instruments), Sense Motive, Sleight of Hand, Stealth, Use Magic Device

So, about that Rogue Talent . . .. I want to build to help the party, not just build to my image of the charming entertainer who will use you to ensure his family is okay.

Canny Observer (Miss fewer hidden things)
Trap Spotter (Always get Perception rolls to look for traps w/i 10', even if nobody remembers to ask)
Combat Trick: Two-Weapon Fighting (Increase the offensive output from the rogue)

I know there are PLENTY of other options, but the first speaks to the role we all need Gudada to fill in the party by addressing his worst skill and how it impacts that role. Of course, I was planning on taking feats at both 3rd and 5th level to do that, too.
The second is just one of those things that is on all the "mandatory" lists. You're just expected to get it. It was the original thought for the level, when I first made this character several years ago.
The third is an option I hadn't originally considered for Gudada's build, making him more of a combat damage character than a truly aggressive skills beast.

Of course, there's always the option of taking those 3 in the listed order. Just acknowledging the possibility.

Haven't changed a thing in the profile, yet.


Male Human Barbarian 2 HP: 15/25 (29) | AC 16 (14) | T 12 | FF 14 | CMD 18 (16) CMB +8 (+6) | F +6 | R +2 | W +0 (+2) | Init +2 | Per +4

Gudada - I'd go with #1 myself, unless you want to take more of an offensive role. Khalbar, when he's not paralyzed, seems to have most things in hand fighting so far...

Khalbar levels up and takes a rage power that allows an additional AoO. He takes some skills including Perception and levels up others. He adds some rage rounds, and BAB and Fort save get +1. He also adds 10hp, when rest allows.

Updated my character profile with my level 2 stuff. Not much change—a few skill points, +1 BAB, increased FORT and WILL, and a few more spells (that I'll prep after we rest).


M Half-Orc (Ulfen) Druid (Goliath Druid) 2 Speed 20 ft | HP 16/16 | AC 18, T 12, FF 16 | F +6, R +4, W +8 | CMD 15 (13 FF) | Init +3 | Per +10

Planning on taking my first level of ranger maybe - favored enemy goblinoids, if everyone wants.

Would be a trapper archetype, so I will assist Gudada with all perception/disable checks that he might want (or if he's otherwise incapacitated I can do them). Always was the plan, but I'll put it in early if people want.

Edit: Alias Updated tentatively!

Re: Gudada: With me helping you, that could free up your talent for other things, or we could really specialize in trapfinding.


male Varisian Human | HP: 6/10 | AC14 (T13, F11) | Init+3 | Perc+6+ | CMB+0(3), CMD13 | F+1, R+5, W+1 | DD+9+, Bluff+5/Dip+5/SM+5, Know(Local)+6 Unchained Rogue 1 | Speed 30' | Sneak Attack+1d6; Trapfinding+1; | Active conditions: None.

Nah, I'm good. It was going to trapfinding anyway, this choice just pumps Perception, which is generically more useful.

Maybe I'll rethink the level 5 feat instead.

Doing what's discussed and the projected level 5 feat . . ..

Lvl 2 is Trap Disable 10+2+1 (13)
Lvl 2 is Trap Per 7+1+4 (12) see hidden rogue trick

3 is 14 & 16 skill focus perception

4 is 16 & 18 auto search rogue talent

5 is 17 & 21 alertness; unlock ?perception

6 is 19 & 23 ?combat trick 2wf rogue talent

7 is 23 & 24 skill focus disable

8 is 25 & 26 skill focus acrobatics (race); ?combat swipe rogue talent (really uncertain about this one)

9 is 26 & 27 acrobatic

10 is 33 & 34 10 ranks doubles feat skill bonuses; unlock ?disable; weapon snatcher advanced rogue talent

The plan is to make Gudada THE trap monkey

It's good with me then, then I'll just delay the ranger for a bit.

Build the way you want to build. Adapt where you think you need to. I'm not one to force a change, but I can't deny it can be necessary.

#DeepThoughts

Bartholomew picks up Perfect Recall (even better at remembering bits of useful knowledge), Poison Resistance +2, and can pass out extracts for other people to use. Does one of our melee folks want long wiggly arms, or a magical shield of force?


Male Elf Sorcerer 2 | Speed 30 ft | HP 12/12 | Spells: 1st: 0/5 | Arcane Bond: 1/1 | AC 12 (16), T 12, FF 10 (14) | F +0, R +2, W +3 | CMD 13 (11 FF) | Init +2 | Per +2, Low-Light Vision

Sorceror Lvl 2 is not that interesting ;)

+1 BAB
+1 Will Saving Throw

+5 HP (4+1 Favoured Bonus)

+1 Lvl 0 Spell (Daze)
+1 Use of Lvl 1 Spells

+4 Skill Points:

+1 Bluff
+1 Intimidate
+1 Spellcraft
+1 Use Magical Device

+2 Background Skill Points:

+1 Appraise
+1 Linguistics (Varisian)

...and that's basically it!

A magical shield that stacks with his armor would make Khalbar more effective in combat. He will be easy to hit normally, but able to absorb and deal out a lot. If the shield can take some of those blows, even better, though getting him to drink the magical concoction may take some persuading.

Hello? Are we waiting on anything in particular?

Dak's been away with his classes, I think he's been unable to do updates for any of his games.

Check. When I started asking myself, I didn't scroll far enough back up to see the class post again. Thank you for the reminder.


HR | MM | RotRL | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Sorry for the delay all, my class is over so I'm going to work on getting back in the routine of checking the boards regularly. Just wanted to provide an update on my games I am in.

No stress. I'm good with the justification. Just forgot it.

Hey all, I'm leaving for a camping trip tomorrow (Thursday) morning and won't be back until Sunday night. Probably can't update until Monday. Happy Independence Day to everyone.

In case I forget to mention it, I will be out of the country on vacation from Wed till next Thurs (7/17-25). Feel free to bot Khalbar should me absence slow things down.

It is not clear if I will have the time or connectivity to post, so my guess is that it will be infrequent and irregular at best.

Cut'n'paste for all my games.

Thursday, 18 July, in the wee hours of the morning, I get on an airplane and leave for the international Boy Scout World Jamboree. I'll be 1 of the roughly 120 people working on JUST the archery ranges, helping the attendees have some fun.

I will have only my phone for electronic access, but AT&T has wired the dickens out of the facility, and a signal should never be my problem. Power on the other hand . . .. There will be a limited number of places to plug things in (compared to the tens of thousands of attendees) and no safe place to plug something in and walk away from it, which means time spent charging is time spent NOT doing any of the things people are there to do.

I am going to try to check in and cover anything I should cover, but I don't know for sure how well it is going to go.

I won't be home again until 3 August.

Actually, part of the reason I've been less responsive the past little bit is I've been getting ready to go. Still have a lot to do, honestly.

If you need to bot me to keep the story moving, BOT ME.


HR | MM | RotRL | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Thanks for the heads up.

On my end things are actually starting to settle down a bit so probably within the next week or two I should be able to post more consistently. We will keep chugging along. I know once the summer is over things will probably settle for a number of us.


HR | MM | RotRL | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Just a quick note to all my games. Going to be out of town on a camping trip for my boys cub scouts tomorrow through Sunday. Not sure if I will have a cell signal to post or not.

Heads up - I will be at a convention Friday through Sunday. As the sun doesn’t set up here in the summer, neither do the games stop. I will post when possible, but at a slower rate than usual. Please don’t hesitate to bot me after 24 hours if I haven’t posted.

I am out of town this weekend starting this afternoon through Sunday late night. Unlikely to check or post, so please bot Khalbar as needed until I return.

"Life is what happens while you are making other plans."

On my arrival day at the World Scout Jamboree, I got caught in a DELUGE of rain. My phone refused to charge because of water detected in the charging port. It has been drained of power sitting in a ziploc bag of rice for a couple of weeks, and STILL reports water in the charging port.

I'll find out later how bad off my phone really is. It can charge through induction, at the worst. Just didn't have any induction chargers at the Jamboree!

Posting this to my games, and I will come back later today and try ot catch up through them.

Thank you for your understanding!

Oh, and the group of 16 staffers (including me) running the 30-target 10m static archery range had people step up to the Shooting Line and throw arrows downrange almost 10,000 times (for 50,000 arrows), including 1 blind archer, 1 wheel-chair bound archer that we held up so she could hoot standing like everyone else, and 1 one-armed archer.

Good call on the map Adarion. The way I had, apparently, misread that feature in the past had me thinking it did something different. Turned it on and that is perfect.

Leaving in the AM to take my oldest kiddo to college for Freshman year. Will be gone till Thurs PM, and will likely be too busy (or emotionally wrecked) to post.

Feel free to run Khalbar as needed until I return.
