Heh. That reminds me of this classic OotS strip. Can't believe how long the 3.5 game engine lasted that a geeky rules joke from 2005 is still funny - shows just how damn good PF1 has been, I suppose.


I knew which one you were talking about before I even clicked on it. "I thought I smelled cheese."


Man, that was so long ago that OOTS was still regularly updating twice a week.

I'd forgotten it was ever updating that fast... but I'll take the current quality for sure. I'll be sad when it comes to the end of its run.


He cranked out the first 300 or so strips in less than three years IMS. Then things slowed down considerably.

Current update rate is averaging around once a week, and I would guess we're about 3/4 of the way through the story (he stated a while back that it was past the halfway point) so... maybe 300 more strips? Which would be about 5-6 years at the current update rate.

Is there more to come from Team Slaver, or is it our go now?


No, more to come. Lost a day to work. Posting shortly.

Just giving a heads up now. I will be at a scifi/fantasy convention for artists and writers this Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I will try to post as best I can, but I honestly do not expect to have time to do much, if any posting.

Mrrrrmph. I begin to wonder if our skill at GLORIOUS COMBAT as not scared our DMDM away.


Not quite! Going to squeeze in the rest of the round before bed, and will try to get another one in (if you guys are up for it) ASAP tomorrow.

We need to focus on taking one foe down at a time. 15 hit points of damage to 3 different foes is much, much less effective than 45 points of damage to a single foe.

Grinceroy: I've got the Overseer shut down because he's blind and has to take a standard action to unblind, at which point I'll blind him again.

It might be better for you to focus DPR on the Boss, or on the swarm that's slowly eating Callinda.

I have a feat that gives me a 10' threatening area with my whip, so I may as well use it

^^ GM, your last post in gameplay mentioned waiting on Morvius re- Weasel -- did this post of his cover that question?


Yup. -- Sorry for the delay, my posting window yesterday happened to coincide with Paizo's scheduled outage!


Huh, and now the website is flashing the "scheduled outage" sign intermittently. Hit Ctrl-A and Ctrl-S before posting!


Holy cannoli, this is like $500 worth of Pathfinder stuff for less than $20.

(Um, except I have almost 90% of this stuff already; whoops.)

Yes, it looks like the $18 tier is where the newer books that I don't already have are. Probably worth getting anyways. You know, for charity.


I used to have a subscription, so I picked up all the "Whoevers of Golarion" books back in the day. The AP would almost be worth it, but I already have the first two and it didn't really grab me. (The Taldor one, now. I'd pay $18 for that in a flash.)

DMDM, you keep saying that the Boss has to make a save, but he's dead now, yeah?


He's down. He may or may not be dead. If you want to know whether he's at negatives or actually dead-dead, that's a Heal check: DC 5 if you do it as a standard, DC 15 if you do it as a free action.

Anyone else in favor of resting?

I'm down in hp, and down much in spells. Another combat like that and we might not make it.

There's an Erinyes with a grudge still out there, plus a weasel with spells.

Let's use that wand of CLW and keep moving.

I've used roughly 60% of my personal healing capability, but we do have the expendable resources as well.

Is everyone's HP accurate currently on their tagline, after my Channel?


Sudden slowdown in posting. Everyone okay?

Sorry! Still here, posting now.

I did say up front that (1) this was based on a PFS scenario and (2) it would be a gauntlet.

This game is great and I'm having a huge amount of fun - if I drop the occasional lampshade, no offence is intended :-)

I admit I feel a bit responsible for this game keeping going. ^_^

Do you want me to invite someone else?

(For the "how did they get here?" they could've just been a slave, with their gear hidden, and were just waiting for the right moment. With a few minutes to get their bearings and maybe a hand-waved potion of heelz they could be back in the fight. Jus' sayin'. Also, Grince was, like, the _only_ blaster-type we had. If we see another swarm, it's TPK.)


Let's give him to the end of this sequence to show up again. When and if you reach the bottom, we can wave in another player.

Morvius has a fine voice, and it carries; but it has a lot to compete with right now.

Negative modifiers: you're 100' away and it's noisy. Still, totally worth a try.

Zulfikor does of course have to make a Concentration check, because you're both going fast down a very bumpy road. d20 You hear him scream in frustration as you whip around the curve...

Hehehehe.

I've DMd countless casters (and played a few), some of whom survived the experience. A few - very few of the more martially inclined (bards, magi) - occasionally took the Combat Casting feat.

None of them, not one, ever took Uncanny Concentration.

Can still remember the look on the player's face when I made him roll Concentration to cast Featherfall ("You're falling to your death, it's a little unsettling").

Fun times.


You may notice my posting slowed down a bit this week; it's spring break and I have teenagers at home.

That said, I'm still here and we're still going. Grinceroy seems to have wandered off, but may I assume everyone else is still on board?

I hear you. My daughter had college registration this week and has prom tomorrow night. Spent two and a half hours shopping for an ACCESSORY Wednesday.

I'm still in.

You get bonus points if you FINALLY found one that, to all good warriors everywhere, is the right color, only to be told, in nor uncertain terms, that it is the WRONG COLOR.

=p

As am I. Busy holiday week, but I'm back.

Hi all - just to let you know that a few weeks back my work pattern changed and I'm now going to have difficulty posting much on Mon, Weds and Thurs.

I will do my best on Mon/Wed/Thurs to post in-combat stuff to keep the game moving, but it will most likely be just a dice roll and a couple lines of text - anything like long RP, exposition, replies to PMs, etc. is going to have to be on other days.

I'm not dropping out, and I'm certainly NOT abandoning the games I'm running. But posting from me has been a lot slower than previously for a while now and I wanted to post the explanation.

Hope that's ok. I will do my best not to be 'that person' who slows everything up :)


Duly noted!


Ugh, lost a week. Don't ask.

Will attempt to resume normal posting shortly. Thank you for your patience.


Okay, over an entire dang MONTH has gone by. There's a story, and I'll get to that, but for now: I'm back. I apologize for the disappearance, and I'm back.

If y'all are still around, please jump back in.

Good to know this is still going! Hope things are ok with you. I'm still around.

A "simple, easy" check, eh? Way to jinx things. I see your absence hasn't made you less evil :-)

Yeah, right? Last time we had an "easy" check, I seem to recall being flung from the cart and bounced along behind it.

This time I auto-passed due to Acrobatics, though, so ready to roll! :)

Do you still want me to get my friend to finish their wizard?

I kinda told him to ice it because...well....


I want to complete this. Heck, I have ideas for going beyond this. And if we move briskly along, we should be able to complete this in... well, let's say we should be well past the halfway point.

Again, apologies for the long silence.

Glad you're still around - and have plans for more!

Looking forward to seeing how this one plays out.

Wow. With dice rolls like that, Morvius is most likely a follower of Cayden Cailean - or least, he would be if the Lucky Drunk weren't so scruffily-dressed.

Divinity is all well and good, but if the Celestial realms don't have decent tailoring then Morvius may have to rethink his allegiances.


I was literally just noticing Pathfinder's lack of classy, stylish deities. TBF, the evil ones are actually rather worse.

I know, right? What's a chap to do?

I suppose Pharasma has a certain aloof dignity (she's probably the picture definition of hauteur) and Shelyn has grace and beauty and art - but they're all of them lacking that certain je ne sais quoi.

To be honest, I doubt any of them cares which way the port is passed after dinner. And we entrust the afterlife to these people.

IS this ride, like, half the module?

I'm sorry but I'm just bored to tears from this thing. It was neat the first twist or two, but at this point I just want it to end. Maybe have a climactic battle or plot twist or something.

My feeling of ennui is only exasperated in the tactical comfort that this would've been done in the first six seconds had any of us made a caster.
