Work reared its ugly head yesterday. I'll make time tonight to get a post in. Sorry for the delay.

Next post will have the group back at the bridge. Looking for the Sisters of Teysura, correct?

Yep.

I am off to Greece with the family for the next two weeks, so I may not be posting as consistently as usual until I return. I'll do my best, but don't hesitate to bot as required...

(Very unfortunate time to be less available 'cause I'm pretty stoked about the next scene, which should involve some interesting RP!)

Honestly I like the slow pace. I feel like I keep having a better idea of things. I love these RP dynamics. I'm looking forward to Toraim and Maria seeing eye to eye though

Certainly, the slow pace allows for reading through the wiki and getting a fuller understanding of the world.

I guess I would be more sanguine about it if we were doing more role-playing and character building work in between interventions from the GM. Except for the recent bit with Toriam and Akula, our characters haven't done much interacting in weeks.

I would love to return to the at least once a day posting, especially if our group talked to each other more.

But that's just my feelings on the matter.

All that being said, I love the slow building connection between Maria and Ysildaë. I was touched that Maria would draw her sword in Ysildaë's defense.

I've started a new job and it is really cutting into my time to post during the day. We have a big board meeting at the end of the month and a meeting with our federal regulators the following week. After that, I should get some time back. In the mean time, I'll do my best to keep moving things along.

Oh, wow! Is this different than your practice expanding earlier this year?


Bright Tower Maps | Last Haven Table #1 Maps | Last Haven Table #2 Maps

Yep, I've been working for a bank as an in-house attorney & compliance officer for about nine years on top of my practice. I was recruited to a trust company to head up their legal/risk/compliance/audit functions. So... nice promotion but lots on my plate!

This is a big year for you! I'm so happy for you! (Even if it means less gaming for me. :-p)

Sorry for not posting the past few days. Figuring out some car insurance stuff among other things.

I wrote a long reply. On my phone. And I lost it!!! I’ll try to find the time again soon-ish...

I'm dying laughing that neither the dwarf nor the elf are especially good at deescalation.

If anyone is wondering about the Eater of The Dead, he is a very powerful and very unpleasant god. He is big into dominance and disease among a host of other interests. The Sons of the Flesh were a hidden sect of proud and powerful dwarves that were exposed and driven into hiding.

I’m doing my best, but you are not making it easy to say the least!

It's probably for the best that the conflict is now entirely out in the open. Toriam seems proud, prickly, passingly quick to take offense. (He got mad at another priestess for suggesting he cast Inflict Light Wounds :-p.) Ysildaë is very idealistic and doesn't speak their shared language well. She was offended and threatened by his words and actions in the prison, but she was also confused by them. Worried that she misinterpreted them.

Now at least the proverbial boil has been lanced. Everyone knows exactly where they stand and what the respective grievances are. It's probably the only way for healing to be a possibility.


HP 21/22 | Init +1 | AC 22, ff 20, touch 12 | Fort +6, Ref +0, Will +5 | Move 20' | Perception +8 (darkvision) | Propitiation: Diplomacy | Combat stamina 3/3 | Artificer 6/6, Runeforger 2\5

Spontaneous casting of inflict light wounds would either require Valthyra to be evil or for her to be neutral and for Toraim to have chosen to channel negative energy...

Honestly, this will prove near impossible if we don’t mind our words...


Female Aasimar (Muse Touched) (Noble Elf) Monk (Scaled Fist) 1/Paladin 1/Samurai (Warrior Poet) 1 l HP: 31/31 l AC: 19/T: 19/FF: 14 l Fort: +6, Ref: +5, W: +2 l Init: +5 l Per: +6 I Sp: 40'

Spontaneous casting yes that would be the case. Scrolls and spells are different matters. That priestess likely has no idea what your resources are.

I agree. I think everyone has said their piece in the matter.

Maria and conflict deescalation dont fit on the same continent xD

She wasnt trying to be rude and irritate Toraim further, shes always been that way. I quite think it was a fun spat, hopefully we find a good resolution. At least one of the party members had a neutral stance xD


HP 21/22 | Init +1 | AC 22, ff 20, touch 12 | Fort +6, Ref +0, Will +5 | Move 20' | Perception +8 (darkvision) | Propitiation: Diplomacy | Combat stamina 3/3 | Artificer 6/6, Runeforger 2\5

Not sure I would call that a fun spat...


Female Aasimar (Muse Touched) (Noble Elf) Monk (Scaled Fist) 1/Paladin 1/Samurai (Warrior Poet) 1 l HP: 31/31 l AC: 19/T: 19/FF: 14 l Fort: +6, Ref: +5, W: +2 l Init: +5 l Per: +6 I Sp: 40'

I think it is interesting character work, but fun isn't what I would call those two (maybe three) very angry characters.


HP 21/22 | Init +1 | AC 22, ff 20, touch 12 | Fort +6, Ref +0, Will +5 | Move 20' | Perception +8 (darkvision) | Propitiation: Diplomacy | Combat stamina 3/3 | Artificer 6/6, Runeforger 2\5

I’m fine with conflict and diverging opinions, but the tirades of insults were off-putting to say the least. At this point, the characters have a common duty, but I can’t imagine that any real alliance is foreseeable, which is too bad ‘cause it makes for strenuous unity at best.

To be honest, I feel that the name calling went a bit too far...


Female Aasimar (Muse Touched) (Noble Elf) Monk (Scaled Fist) 1/Paladin 1/Samurai (Warrior Poet) 1 l HP: 31/31 l AC: 19/T: 19/FF: 14 l Fort: +6, Ref: +5, W: +2 l Init: +5 l Per: +6 I Sp: 40'

I hope that you out of game don't feel attacked. If you do, I humbly apologize. (Also, if so, what can we do to restore our oog camaraderie?)

Honestly, I thought you (oog) were interested in increasing the conflict (ig) when Toriam doubled down on child negligence (and potentially homicide) as a matter of public health policy. Especially, when he began his retort by calling Ysildaë's invocation of what she took to be their shared values as mere rhetoric. (Though admittedly it was ham-fisted on her part.)

Part of the moral horror that Ysildaë is experiencing here is that Toriam never acknowledges that his preferred solution could have ended up with a potentially dead kid. He says that they could have taken care of her at the prison, but how? Conventional healing magic would be counter-productive and none of these characters has significant points in Heal. (It's very easy for children suffering from malnutrition to die from improper care. Sometimes help isn't very helpful.)

And then when she points out that he stood in the way of the exit -- in an attempt to prevent a dying child from receiving critical care -- that she interpreted that as a threatening action, his responses was basically, "I'm sorry you feel that way."

Now I fear that I misinterpreted Toraim's doubling down on his certitude and offering the quintessential non-apology as you (oog) leaning into the in character conflict when in fact you oog meant no such thing.


HP 21/22 | Init +1 | AC 22, ff 20, touch 12 | Fort +6, Ref +0, Will +5 | Move 20' | Perception +8 (darkvision) | Propitiation: Diplomacy | Combat stamina 3/3 | Artificer 6/6, Runeforger 2\5

Don't get me wrong: I remain fully ok with *some* in-game conflict between characters, but I do hope for a measure of civility. Here, while I tried to keep Toraim's tone *fairly* respectful and I paid attention to not coming off as *too* insulting or aggressive, I found the insults that were flung at him to be, as I wrote, beyond the pale. In-game, how could a character envision an alliance with people who speak to him or her with such bile and violence? And honestly, ooc, the tirades were difficult to stomach.

It's one thing to have a disagreement. It's a whole other to insult someone again and again – it's no way to win a debate.

I intended Toraim's apology to be sincere and to address the fact that his stance was interpreted as menacing when it was not intended to be so – something that I brought up ooc. And I tried to move past the whole thing twice by suggesting that we let the constable intervene, as he ended up doing.

In any case, water under the bridge. More or less. If anything, it will certainly create opportunities for more roleplay later...


Female Aasimar (Muse Touched) (Noble Elf) Monk (Scaled Fist) 1/Paladin 1/Samurai (Warrior Poet) 1 l HP: 31/31 l AC: 19/T: 19/FF: 14 l Fort: +6, Ref: +5, W: +2 l Init: +5 l Per: +6 I Sp: 40'

Interesting! Respectful is not how I interpreted Toraim, his speech, to me, seemed escalatory at every turn, refusing (what she intended to be the courtesy) of presenting the case to the constable (he could best represent his side and concerns), saying she held the guards in contempt, etc. Constable intervention was her initial proposition after all. If that's what he wanted too, then it seems like it could have ended by Toriam initially responding something to the extent of "I agree that the constable is the appropriate authority to alert. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to make my case. However, I feel more comfortable keeping watch and believe that you can adequately present the issue to him."

From my mind, the conversation could basically be summarized after he shot down her initial peace offering as Toraim saying "you think I'm a monster, but it's you that's out of line" and Ysildaë responding "yes, I think you are a monster and here is why."

I agree with you that insulting people isn't a way to win a civil debate, but I'm not entirely sure it ever was a debate. Or at least I don't think discussing whether or not first-responders should let dying people in a disaster-zone die because they don't trust them is a fit topic for debate. (It's not really an agree-to-disagree moment.) Even the worst of criminals deserve life saving care. It's not the same as debating philosophical tenets in a class or the positions of the local school board on best bus schedules.

I guess that is really the really the root of their current strife: they don't have a shared understanding of the moral stakes involved.

But, yes, currently neither of these characters want to work with each other. Fortunately, for us out of game, the necessity of the situation is that there are hordes of diseased undead wandering the city. (and likely worse). If they don't work together then it increases their chances to die horrifically as well as endangering the rest of the survivors. Nobody wants that.

Correct me here if I'm wrong, but if there is ever to be a rapprochement Toriam needs to feel like he is being heard and respected? Ysildaë for her part will need to feel like she isn't fighting next to a person willing to let someone die because he doesn't trust them and is willing to use physical coercion to get his way.

Towards that end, if there is another situation like Toraim blocking an exit to prevent saving a life, and she tells him to move and he doesn't, then oog I'll ask for clarification of intent. That could prevent another escalation. In that vein, any time I confused by Toraim's action (like when you said he stalks off and it wasn't clear to me that he was still with us) it will give us an opportunity to acheive clarity before characters react. Likewise, if Ysildaë does something you find confusing, I'll be eager to clarify.

Sounds right! And for the record: no hard feelings. I'm just trying to get to the bottom of this whole thing and move along with some sort of an understanding so we can all have a good time!

Thanks! The last thing I want are hard feelings. Being able to talk to you about this is a big relief. :-)

This whole thing is also a lesson for me: I shouldn't assume that my tone and meaning are clear. Not enough adjectives + too few adverbs + little or no descriptions = too much room for interpretation in a context where the word alone must tell the entire story.

...which is embarrassing 'cause I'm a professional (and fairly successful) copywriter and scriptwriter!

Mind you, a lot of my work involves leaving the subtext to the actors and allowing the visual to tell the story. Long story short, I need to start writing more prose!

It's certainly been a shocking reminder how much interpretations of the same events can diverge!

Woahhhh I missed a bunch here and to start things off I'm really sorry that this wasn't a fun roleplay bit for you. What to me was interesting drama was to you needlessly s+#~ting on your character, and I wish I had realized that.

To be clear, what Maria said was never intended to be good communication, or debate; it was an argument, plain and simple. She's a naive childlike introvert who is rude and insulting any time she's challenged by someone who doesn't threaten her in response. I don't think she likes Toraim at all (yet, and big on the yet; I'd love to focus on the getting there), because his very pragmatic attitude reminds her more of her brother and is incompatible with her idealistic approach to reality.

Personally I used Maria to fling WAY more insults your way than Ysildaë did in part to make it more clear that she had no interest in winning Toraim over but instead making Ysildaë like her more because she thinks thats easier. But I'm sorry it went too far for you; thanks for letting us know and hopefully we wont need to have this discussion, but if anyone does, please do. I like this game, I'd prefer not to upset anyone :(

Akula wasn't super involved in this RP spat but I think we have an interesting divide between the more idealistic characters and the more pragmatic, down to earth ones. Maybe thats not the best way to divide them; we'll see how everyone thinks soon enough, but I like to think that these kinds of conflicts are good ways for characters to become friends, unlikely as that seems. I'm sure we'll have an olive branch soon enough.


Female Aasimar (Muse Touched) (Noble Elf) Monk (Scaled Fist) 1/Paladin 1/Samurai (Warrior Poet) 1 l HP: 31/31 l AC: 19/T: 19/FF: 14 l Fort: +6, Ref: +5, W: +2 l Init: +5 l Per: +6 I Sp: 40'

I don't really think this present issue was pragmatism versus idealism. That being said, Ysildaë is not a pragmatic person. She is a "do what is right" person, in this case protecting the vulnerable. Which Akula was in support of as well.

I do think it's interesting that you say that Maria is trying to score points with Ysildaë. I'm honestly surprised that Maria is that calculating.


Bright Tower Maps | Last Haven Table #1 Maps | Last Haven Table #2 Maps

That is the danger and the beauty of writing... it leaves a lot for the reader to interpret, including intent. Glad everything seems to be in the clear.

I analogize the situation to a group of soldiers at war. They come upon someone who bears signs of the enemy but is gravely injured. Do you do the humane thing and get them help immediately knowing that your bringing an enemy who is possible booby-trapped into your infirmary. Such a decision certainly will reveal much about a character's core values while also displaying their flaws.

My interpretation:

Ysildaë, for her part, is very kind and humane, but she is also blind/naive to possible threats or is willing to risk the lives of the Sisters to help someone. Mind you, the Sisters of Teysura would risk themselves to help the young lady as well. Toraim, seems more concerned for the greater good of the community rather than the individual. He doesn't want to risk the community until he can better ascertain the risk and threat-level associated with a half-undead npc.

In any event, let's get back to the game.

Sounds like the plan is to return to the prison. It is now late afternoon almost evening. Please place yourselves on the map in the location that you re wanting to explore. I'll try to get a brief description up today.

Following our regulator's visit at work on Monday, my schedule lights and should allow me more time to post. I've been pulling 12 hours days and bringing work home for the past three weeks. So, I'm ready to spend some time gaming real soon.

Done. On ground floor.

Icon placed. Supporting Toriam with readied spear thrusts.

Ysildaë is not an especially clever woman, but she isn't an idiot either. She has never thought nor said that there is no way for the girl to be a threat. She could have been persuaded to let the girl be treated in the prison as threat mitigation under one of two conditions: a) somebody in the party is a healing expert (which nobody in the party is) or b) if someone had run to the Sisters and asked a volunteer to help.

The analogy of us being soldiers at war as opposed to first-responders in a crisis zone is both interesting and troubling. To be at war implies a level of coordination on the undead side of things which we haven't seen yet. (The "war" on drugs was never a war. :-p) That's the interesting part. The troubling part is that if the wounded potential enemy here has been fitted with some kind of IED to damage our infrastructure and support staff, then that potential enemy combatant is a child soldier. Which means she didn't choose her side (and as a matter of autonomy could not have) and we have different moral duties than to her and her care than we might had she been an adult. If that is the best analogy, then I think oog the most ethical solution would lie in fetching expert help to assist which limits the potential damage. But that's not something Ysildaë would think of as her initial snap judgment.

I've been worried about Akula. They haven't posted anywhere since the 11th, but one of those posts suggested that they would be traveling for the next ten days.

Maria was also biased because she's interested in this person. She's never met a Dhampir, but has read about them; the inverted effects of positive and negative energy are interesting to her, as well as other properties of what are essentially pseudovampires. In her mind, the child dying would be a major loss in terms of our ability to understand exactly what the shaping did to the world, and how to go about it. I mean, we know what happened (I think?) but the broader impacts and long-term implications are something that can only be obtained by studying those effected by it. If this girl was fully mortal before the shaping, it indicates that far more may have survived than we first believed.

And yeah, at least by Maria's approach they're more the front end of an effort to understand and reclaim the world than part of an army; an armed field research team. She doesn't have the mentality of a soldier, and is only half-sold on being in the frontlines at all. It does give her research opportunities though; and she'd LOVE to study Eórann's physiology in particular.

These characters in game don't know why the world ended. If they did, they would either be rioting or trying to quell a riot at the Bright Tower.

Out of game, and in the main campaign, we know that the world ended because an demigod archmage got into a slap fight with Kiravor. This slap fight caused a rift to open between the physical world and the Ether.

We know that those beneath earth and stone didn't get their souls ripped from their bodies which is a fate that happened to many. We don't know why. Is it a physical thing? Is it because the goddess of life is also the goddess of earth, and she used her element to spiritually shield people?

In Thomas' campaign he saved his lover, the prince, from becoming a ghoul. But some dark force interfered with the goddess' miracle and he became a dhampir. (This is something our characters don't know but it's what that one sister kept dancing around). My guess is that there is a godling somewhere in this city associated with unpleasant spiritual things coordinating mortal and undead pawns, but that's just a guess.

That makes sense. Still, someone only partially affected by the shaping is a hugely valuable asset for our characters to start piecing together what happened and why it didnt have the same effect everywhere; from what we know, this girl was in an enclosed space but not in some underground bunker or anything; maybe she was somehow partially shielded from the effects? I'm interested in talking to her once she wakes up; if she was perfectly normal, that tells us something. If she wasnt, that tells us even more.

Yes, I'm very interested in what she has to say. I just wish we were 5th level though, because by then my Diplomacy and Sense Motive would be on point. I also wish we had a children's psychologist on staff so that she doesn't have angry, armed people yelling questions at her when she wakes up.

I think at least some of the group are good with kids. Better than with adults, in Maria's case.


Bright Tower Maps | Last Haven Table #1 Maps | Last Haven Table #2 Maps

So, the big push at work culminated yesterday. So, I should be getting back to a more consistent posting schedule.

BTW, the young girl is about 15-16 years old. Not a child, but not an adult.

Hi folks. You might have noticed I've been absent for a while. My apologies. I'm dealing with a bunch of overlapping life changes that have left me wiped out during my small amount of free time.

I can't reliably post right now, and I'm not sure when that will change, so I'm reluctantly dropping out of this game.

I've really enjoyed the character interactions. If I can sort out real life I'll come back and beg to rejoin.

I hope all goes well for you with whatevers going on in your life!

No worries, Akula. Hope things work out for you, and thank you for the post.

We'll just say that Akula is summoned by her cousin, Gunther Krögen, the third Apprentice of the Proven in the Bright Tower. If you find yourself with the time and inclination to return, just give us a shout.

No worries, Akula. Hope things work out for you, and thank you for the post.

We'll just say that Akula is summoned by her cousin, Gunther Krögen, the third Apprentice of the Proven in the Bright Tower. If you find yourself with the time and inclination to return, just give us a shout.

Agreed! You will be missed.

Sorry about that. Managed to get myself profoundly sick.

The essence tracker in the campaign info page is out of date:

There is another essence here. It went to Toriam.

Just so everybody knows, the GM recently ruled that the death throws from these undead are negative energy damage. If you want you can use Primal Death essences to get Resistance to Negative Energy Damage.

Excited to see what can be done with essences. I have some ideas. Will take a while, ofc.

Correct, Ysildaë.

The Zombie bursts will be Negative Energy going forward.

Also, I'm revamping the essence system and hope to have it updated this week. I'm currently showing Ysildaë and Toraim each having a Death Essence. Correct?

And whatever the new essence is.

So, all three of you should now have an essence. I've modified the essence rules for the Last Haven campaigns.

By claiming the essences, the holder will know the nature of the essence. All three are Death Essences.

Look HERE for the details. These can be imbued to yourselves or to any masterwork item. Imbuing an item requires a DC5 Will save, otherwise the essence refuses to be imbued. You can try it on another item or yourselves.
