Welcome to my Play-by-Post!

Here's the ctrl+P for all my games:

1. I've been running games since the late 1980s, I've seen a lot of editions. I started playing PFS with Slot 1 Season 0 at Gen Con. I'm solid with the PFRPG rules, but everyone makes mistakes. I'll try to be as fair as possible.

2. I'm a Venture-Lieutenant for Southern NH. If you're ever in the area, or you need help finding games/conventions there. PM me.

3. I post with a high rate of frequency. That being said, if you guys can post 2-3 times per day, awesome. If it's only 1/day I understand. No worries. Real Life Comes First (tm).

4. Feel free to preemptively roll Perception, Disable Device, etc. It makes the game run more efficiently. I ask only that you make sure minis are placed in their actual position in case your choices have consequences (good or bad.)

5. Let's get started:

Player Name:

PC Name:

PFS#:

Slow Track or Normal:

Faction:

Day Job: Feel free to roll now.

Perception and vision/senses:
Initiative:

Notes: Anything I should know; passive abilities, boons that are way out there, etc. If you have abilities that are immediate actions that interrupt an enemy, I'll be as fair as possible, but you can help me out by telling me under what conditions you typically use it.

----------------------------------------------

Some expectations in my games:

  • Try to post at least once daily. Remember though, real life comes first. If you're going to be gone for 24+ hours, try to give a heads up before you go.

  • Saving Throws first. If you have a saving throw to make, have it be the first dice of the post.

  • Animal companions, eidolons, phantoms, etc. For PbP I have them go on the same initiative as their PC. In your post take care of the PC, then the companion.

  • Know your obscure rules. Most people know how the basics work, but if you have a character who uses something less than common, know how it works (Handle Animal, Sunder, Grapple, etc.)

    That's about it! Looking forward to the game!

    Notes: Primary note is his feat, Nimble Moves. This allows him to ignore the first 5 ft of difficult terrain, including allowing him to make 5 ft steps into said terrain. Other than that, he's a Core Dwarf Rogue, so pretty basic. He also took Trap Spotter as his lvl 2 rogue talent.

    Trap Spotter (Ex): Whenever a rogue with this talent comes within 10 feet of a trap, she receives an immediate Perception skill check to notice the trap. This check should be made in secret by the GM.

    Just as a note, I am predominatly a buffing and support character, I have very little melee capability. I originally signed up with a level 7 character but that pushed us to APL5 which would have meant high tier wit the 4 player adjust. That didnt look like a great idea with level 3 and 4 characters around.

    I do very much appreciate that Telka.

    The rogue, fyi, is not actually in here. I got my PC's mixed up, I'm bringing Kaya instead. We are currently still missing two PC's.

    From personal (not Kaya) experience, Ironshanks is quite a melee beast. I spect if we just buff, support and point him in the right direction we'll be good to go most of the combats. That doesn't even include the other two pending PC's in the mix either.

    Sir Ninn, I like your use of the Amulet of Mighty Fists. Sneaky way to add a bit of damage to your build.

    Kaya has a few damage spells and is built for ranged touch attacks. She has a good amount of spell versatility so she might have something to pull from her hat if we run across some crazy scenarios.

    As for skills, 8/10 knowledge skills, spellcraft, umd, stealth, linguistics and diplomacy are at +7 or higher.

    TLDR: She'll be up front in social situations and in the back in combat.

    Thank you. This will actually be my first scenario with the amulet. The plan is to do non-lethal damage whenever possible, then Swift action lay on hands to simultaneously heal damage from myself and the enemy.

    Ya Ironshanks is a pretty straight forward Dwarven fighter frontliner. High AC, good in melee, will use a longbow if necessary, and ok saves. Piss poor skill options and a negative CHA.

    I think this the first instance I've fought ogres in PFS PbP since I started 2-3 years ago. Now that's saying something!

    I've always been a fan of the classic monsters. Not enough fights with orcs, goblins and giantkin for my tastes.


    MAP TEMPLATES | Giantslayer | Fall of Plaguestone | Skull & Shackles |

    I can get behind that. Classic monsters are often my favorite, but frequently don't fit into 4 hour slots such that they don't feel like wandering encounters.

    I am just going t peg this down as a marker now, particularly for Ironshanks. Telka does basically no damage in combat. His main contribution tends to be either buffs, bit of luck (roll all d20's twice for a round) and/or moving about eating up OA's and providing a flank. If you go running off first I cant do any of these things so you may want to bear that in mind.

    I'm not 100% sure what you mean by this. Ironshanks doesn't really 'run off' with his 20' speed and he almost never charges (He likes his high AC). Your 40' speed should keep you well within range. But either way, if you are planning on buffing me then just ask Ironshanks in character to wait a bit, otherwise he prioritizes getting in front of threats to protect the group.

    Ooooh my, that is a nice item to have in a core game. One time cost and functionally almost as good as an oil of daylight (range is a bit less but still has the same value vs. deeper darkness). Jeepers!

    This is not Deeper Darkness, and is a case of specific trumps general. (It's that you can only see the haunting vision and nothing else.)

    So probably something like a phantasm, rather than a light effect. Though I doubt they actually worked out the mechanics of the haunt that detailed.

    My experience with haunts--I always seem to run into them as players and not as a GM--is that they make both physical and mental haunts. The mental haunts make you experience something other than reality while we stand still in the room like trees.

    Can be nasty if you combine that with something unaffected by a haunt that can eat you. :)

    It looks like you have the Alexandrite Gem from Wounded Wisp. Unfortunately that isnt high enough level to overcome deeper darkness, you need 4th level heightened light effects for that. The gem is only 3rd. It does defeat regular darkness.

    Deeper Darkness is a lvl 3 spell. Is there some rule about heightened effects that require them to be a spell level higher than normal?

    The spell countering overcoming the deeper darkness must be higher level (4th vs. 3rd) to overcome it.

    If I remember correctly, putting the alexandrite gem in an area of deeper darkness will return the overlapping area to its original light level. Whereas putting the gem in an area of darkness will bring the light level up to the gem's, as if the darkness wasn't there.

    Edit: I remembered incorrectly. The effect I was thinking about is a function of the daylight spell specifically, rather than a general effect of light/darkness interaction.

    omg... that's insane. Why... just why.

    I'm hoping V2 won't be as absurd when it comes to faq's, dev posts and then dev blogs to explain the faqs... but it prolly will.

    Whelp, I guess daylight is going into my spellbook immediately at lvl 5.

    To be fair it is in the text of darkness, which deeper darkness works like. Light spells ovly work if they are of higher level than the darkness spell.

    Holy I get out early for some fishing and come back early to a pile of posts and some of Ironshank's greatest fears all lumped together!

    Does he need to make the acro check? He only jumps at -6... eesh.

    That's more a function of who said yes to you. Good point, and good catch though. Thank you for the reminder. Practically speaking it's been 4 rooms (about to be 5.) So it's 5 x whomever says yes.

    Nobody said yes, so I assumed just Sir Ninn. Marking 5 charges.
