201 to 222 of 222 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | next > last >>

Deck Handler // Tier 5.5 // 7 hero points

5-5B:

Spend Hero Point on Card Feat (5 Weapons)

Deck Upgrade:
Armor 5: 1d1000 ⇒ 63 Replace Blackcloth Armor with Armor of Skulls

Filling empty weapon slot with Disrupting Rapier +1 (Weapon 3). Extra weapon slot gives me more pseudo-healing capability as well as ensuring I almost always have a weapon in hand, which has been an issue in the past.

No interest in loot. Aiger's Kiss manages to somehow be worse than lower-level weapons. 1d6+2 is only 0.5 better than 2d4 on average, and all of my other weapons have bonus effects that more than make up for that difference.

boon: 1d20 ⇒ 15


Deck Handler // Searching For: Item 5 > Ally 5 > Weapon 5 > Ally 5 > (Spell 5)

5-5B: Battle At Sea - Olenjack Rewards

Tier Progression: (5.3) Olenjack gains a Hero Point and immediately expends it to check off a Skill Feat.
Charisma d10 ☑ +1 ☐ +2 ☐ +3

Olenjack still has 4 Hero Points.

Scenario Reward: If nobody else will take it, I'll probably end up using the Loot Ally Alise Grogblud and then end up with 2 allies that can reveal to let me autopass against various barriers. If I'm not prepared to handle their downside (which I really don't think is that bad either way) or if the right barrier doesn't come up I can always just display or recharge them to my power.

I will totally use the loot rapier if nobody else remotely wants it. I'll replace one of my worse weapons with it, since it has the Swashbuckling trait and so it can at least be buried to 'heal' myself 1d4 cards.

In short; I'm conditionally interested in both Loot, but only if they're left unclaimed.

Boon Roll 5-5B: 1d20 ⇒ 17 -> No dice.

Banished Cards: Immortal Dreamstone/Bloodroot Poison (Curse) (Item), Delve (Spell), Call Potion (Spell)

Olenjack's Deck Upgrade preferences are as follows (accepting minimum priority on my upgrades, due to my ideal upgrade being provided to me in the last scenario)...

  • Item 5: Replace Empty Item Slot with Wyvern Poison (Rogue Class Deck). Minimum Priority: 1d1 ⇒ 1
  • Ally 5: Replace Old Salt with Wayfarer (Rogue Class Deck). Minimum Priority: 1d1 ⇒ 1
  • Weapon 5: Replace Venomous Dagger +2 with Venomous Heavy Crossbow +2 (Rogue Class Deck). Minimum Priority: 1d1 ⇒ 1

    Olenjack replaces the following Empty Card Slots, if necessary.

  • Empty Spell Slot 1 with Call Potion (Ultimate Equipment, Spell 0).
  • Empty Spell Slot 2 with Delve (Ultimate Equipment, Spell 2).
  • Empty Item Slot with Liquid Blade (Ultimate Equipment, Item 1).

    Olenjack (Tier 5, 3XP)

    Deck Upgrades: Ally 5
    Notes: Feat: Charisma [X]+1. Used Deathknell.


    For reference, here are the initial 39 boons (of which we need 5x5 = 25)
    8 Weapons
    5 Spells
    10 Armors
    5 Items
    7 Allies
    4 Blessings

    I'm thinking about at the start of the first turn Flying Enora over to the House of Stolen Kisses, so her Binder's Tome and Byzantine Tome are available for anyone going after the 4 allies there. If I do so, any requests for which 2 locations I scout? (Maybe Sharkskin Reef and Shark Island?) Alternatively, I could hold on to Fly and use it later on to shuttle Maznar somewhere usefully.


    Deck Handler // Searching For: Item 5 > Ally 5 > Weapon 5 > Ally 5 > (Spell 5)

    Hey everyone!

    I'm letting everyone know that I'll be travelling to the States on my Friday, October the 18th, a journey which - between the series of long flights and the absolute necessity to pass out asleep as soon as I reach my destination, and the associated settling in - will likely take me out of action for about 36-48.

    For the timezones of most of you, this effectively means I likely won't be posting around Thursday or Friday (and possibly Saturday). Once I'm settled in, standard posting frequency should resume, albeit at different time slots. You may bot me as necessary.


    5-5C Boon?: 1d20 ⇒ 19 So close!


    Deck Handler // Searching For: Item 5 > Ally 5 > Weapon 5 > Ally 5 > (Spell 5)

    5-5C: Beneath the Waves - Olenjack Rewards

    Tier Progression: (5.4) Olenjack gains a Hero Point.
    Olenjack now has 5 Hero Points.

    Scenario Reward: Whilst I really like "display-and-forget" cards, and there's a reasonable number of cards it works against... I don't quite think I want the Pearl of Sirines, no, especially since it would hinder me being able to repeatedly find 3 items with my Robe of Items.

    Boon Roll 5-5#: 1d20 ⇒ 8 -> No dice.

    Banished Cards: Immortal Dreamstone/Liquid Blade (Item), Delve (Spell).

    As before, consider my deck upgrades to be of minimum priority until AD6.

    Olenjack's Deck Upgrade preferences are as follows...

  • Item 5: Replace Empty Item Slot with Wyvern Poison (Core) (Rogue Class Deck). Minimum Priority: 1d1 ⇒ 1
  • Ally 5: Replace Old Salt with Wayfarer (Rogue Class Deck). Minimum Priority: 1d1 ⇒ 1
  • Weapon 5: Replace Venomous Dagger +2 with Venomous Heavy Crossbow +2 (Rogue Class Deck). Minimum Priority: 1d1 ⇒ 1

    Olenjack replaces the following Empty Card Slots, if necessary.

  • Empty Spell Slot with Delve (Ultimate Equipment, Spell 2).
  • Empty Item Slot with Liquid Blade (Ultimate Equipment, Item 1).


  • Enora's 1st choice is Spell 5 (Eagle Aerie), but could also take Blessing 3 (for Blessing 2 of Nethys)

    I think I'll take CON+1 as my skill feat? Feels weird, but I've got no side skills, and it might be nice to pick up the odd armor.

    No interest in the loot.

    5-5C reward: 1d20 ⇒ 8
    Nope


    Agna's Deck Handler

    Scenario 5C Rewards:
    Agna is not interested in the Pearl of Sirines.
    Hero Point will be spent on Skill Feat: Wisdom +2

    Deck Upgrade:
    Ally 5: 1d1000 ⇒ 639 Moose
    Blessing 3: 1d1000 ⇒ 836 Blessing of Abadar or Milani

    5C boon roll: 1d20 ⇒ 18


    No on the loot.

    Boon?: 1d20 ⇒ 8

    Skill feat: Constitution [X]+1

    Deck Upgrade:
    Spell 5: 1d1000 ⇒ 252
    Item 5: 1d1000 ⇒ 65
    Armor 5: 1d1000 ⇒ 322


    Deck Handler // Tier 5.5 // 7 hero points

    5-5C Boon: 1d20 ⇒ 6

    Tier 5.4. Capped on feats, so I gain a hero point (now 7)

    Deck Upgrades:
    Ally 5: 1d1000 ⇒ 234 Sorrowsoul -> Fortune-Teller
    Nothing else is an upgrade, I'll defer to Agna as to whether or not she'll pass up on Moose.

    Olenjack (Tier 5, 4XP)
    Hero Point saved. Used: 0 Remaining: 5
    Deck Upgrades: Weapon 5
    Notes:


    This is a bit of a tangent, but an offline situation came up that reminded me of the question we had back in 5-4C.

    5-4C scenario rule wrote:

    When you encounter a monster, roll 1d6 then:

    1–2. Summon and encounter the henchman Animate Dream.
    [...]

    We decided that the scenario rule could take effect multiple times. Ie if the d6 causes an Animate Dream to be summoned, that resulting Animate Dream causes another d6 roll.

    However, consider the CotCT blessing the Courtesan:
    The Courtesan, when this is the hour wrote:
    When you would encounter a non-story bane barrier, banish it instead, then summon and encounter a Task barrier.

    It seems to me this cannot take effect multiple times. Or else the Courtesan needs errata that excludes Task barriers, or excludes summoned barriers. (And I could see any of those 3 as being the intended functionality.) Otherwise, it automatically causes an infinite loop?


    Play PACG Play-by-Post? Feel free to use my custom Deck Handler. An index of my other Deck Handlers can be found here.

    Agreed; it should say "when you would encounter a non-story bane barrier from a location". Or even "when you would encounter a non-Task barrier", as you pointed out.

    I'm quite confident that, RAW, "When you would" powers can interrupt themselves as long as it's not playing a card or using a power that is normally limited to once per check or step.


    5-4D Boon?: 1d20 ⇒ 5 Nope!


    Enora only really is interested in the Spell 4 (Acid Rain). But if anyone else wants it, I'm okay going without an upgrade.
    Saving hero point.

    5-5D reward: 1d20 ⇒ 13
    Nope


    Deck Handler // Searching For: Item 5 > Ally 5 > Weapon 5 > Ally 5 > (Spell 5)

    5-5D: A Royal Request - Olenjack Rewards

    Olenjack expended a Hero Point during 5-5D.

    Tier Progression: (5.5) Olenjack gains a Hero Point.
    Olenjack now has 5 Hero Points.

    Scenario Reward: Added to Deck Handler.

    Boon Roll 5-5D: 1d20 ⇒ 16 -> No dice.

    Banished Cards: Immortal Dreamstone/Liquid Blade (Item), Delve (Spell).

    Olenjack's Deck Upgrade preferences are as follows...

  • Ally 5: Replace Old Salt with Wayfarer (Ultimate Equipment). Minimum Priority: 1d1 ⇒ 1

    Olenjack replaces the following Empty Card Slots, if necessary.

  • Empty Spell Slot with Delve (Ultimate Equipment, Spell 2).
  • Empty Item Slot with Liquid Blade (Ultimate Equipment, Item 1).


  • Boon?: 1d20 ⇒ 2

    Save Hero Point.

    Maznar will take whatever is the highest spell left (give the four to Enora, who will use it better) to think about replacing Holy Light. But, not a huge priority.


    Agna's Deck Handler

    5-5D Scenario Reward:
    For the rest of the Adventure Path, when you would bury the top card of your deck, you may instead examine the top 2 cards of your deck, then recharge 1 and bury the other.
    Hero Point saved (7 total).

    Deck Upgrade:
    Ally 5: 1d1000 ⇒ 387 Moose

    5-5D Boon: 1d20 ⇒ 18


    Deck Handler // Tier 5.5 // 7 hero points

    5-5D: Gain a hero point, but also spent one, so now at 7 hero points.

    Boon: 1d20 ⇒ 8

    Pass on deck upgrades, I took the Ally 5 last time so I'm deferring it to the rest of the party this time. Nothing else looks notable.

    Notes:


    Hm those start of turn checks are nasty for Enora. I'm thinking of taking Rekkish for some extra healing. Any objections?
    (Rickety Hake might be interesting too- I'd have just under a 50% chance of getting in my opening hand. Although, Olenjack goes first, and he has a good chance of forcing the ship repair through.)
