Hello! I'll be playing Aric / the Red Raven. I've created a profile for each aspect of the character. My plan was to change profiles every time I switched aspects. How do you think that would play?

Should be nifty. I think I saw another Aric on the forums do just that. If you use the Paizo plugin for the browser then I would recommend that you create a 3rd profile that is your default for this particular campaign that isn't tied to a particular character..that way if you forget to change then your post isn't accidentally tied to the wrong profile.

If you aren't familiar with the plugin, it primarily makes it easier to see activity on the campaign page and sets a default profile for that particular campaign..Another minor but nifty thing is updating the icon used for a profile. For example, you see my profile picture as the hand with eye in it. I see it using the icon I use in hangouts, etc.

I'll check it out on my laptop, but I can't install it at work.


Hello All I will be playing Balazar so it should be fun!!!


Hi Everyone, again. I'm hoping for better luck than the last two times we played a scenario :-) BTW, electricity damage sucks.


Female Human (Bl3or4) | 3 Die Bumps | My Deck Handler Tier 4 Troublemaker Bard / UC (12789-1002)

Bekah will not be taking tier advancements.


Male Gnome | (Ally 5, Blessing 5) | Tier 5 Summoner | 7 Hero Points | My Deck Handler

Balazar will be taking tier advancements for this special.


Female Human (Bl3or4) | 3 Die Bumps | My Deck Handler Tier 4 Troublemaker Bard / UC (12789-1002)

Due to some unfortunate rolls due to the god of the Goblins Lamashtu, 2 die bumps were used. One from Bekah and one from Balazar


Rewards: Each character chooses weapon or spell and adds a card of that type from the game box to the cards acquired during this scenario. Adventure Card Guild characters may choose a bonus deck upgrade.

Here is the list of acquired cards from the game:
Acolyte (Ally B)
Merchant (Ally 2)
Guide (Ally B)
Chain Mail (Armor B)
Magic Leather Armor (Armor B)
Blessing of Lamashtu (Blessing 1)
Web (Spell 2)
Short Sword (Weapon B)
War Razor +1 (Weapon 2)
Short Sword +1 (Weapon 1)

In addition, everybody needs to choose either Weapon or Spell to add to the list.

Balazar: As this is your second scenario at Tier 3, you will get a power feat.
Aric, Lirianne: As this is your third scenario at Tier 1, there are no upgrades for you at this time.

Additionally, I have Bekah and Balazar using 1 Die Bump each.

Finally, each of you will get 2 Card Upgrades, please go ahead and make your card choices and which scenario you want to next: Either Fire or Ice and we can get rolling!


Scenario Cards:

Traits: Bludgeoning Hammer Magic Melee
To Acquire: Strength Melee 9
For your combat check, reveal this card to roll your Strength or Melee die + 1d8+1; you may additionally discard this card to add another 1d6. If you aren't proficient with weapons, the difficulty of this check is increased by 4.

If you discard this card for its power and defeat a monster, you may examine the top card of your location deck; if it is a monster, you may encounter it.

Spell:

Traits: Divine Magic
To Acquire: Wisdom Divine 6
Discard this card to add 2 dice to any check to defeat a barrier. After playing this card, if you do not have the Divine skill, banish it; otherwise, you may succeed at a Divine 8 check to recharge this card instead of discarding it.

Each weapon is an upgrade in power, but none offer off-site combat support. Diane will have to review and decide.


Female Human (Bl3or4) | 3 Die Bumps | My Deck Handler Tier 4 Troublemaker Bard / UC (12789-1002)

Bekah will start at the Citadel (no brainer due to needing allies for my power).

I am ok that we keep order and have next person in line goes first (meaning Lirianne goes first).

With Scenario 8-00B1 finished, we all get a Boon roll for the following boon:

Lirianne and Aric will get a Power feat as this is their 4th Scenario.

Additionally, you can all choose a Card AD 2 or under to stash until the end of the next scenario where you will get that card as a bonus deck upgrade.

So I need:

Human Tier 2 Vigilante 1348771-1002 | Deck Handler

Hi all. Korundo is a meathead who is good at combat and healing but not so good with barriers. His current Cohort makes him a good choice for closing locations.

Feel free to use any of his resources if you need them.
