Roderic's Wreck

So I usually post this at the start of games I am in, but I had forgot for this one. I have a Discord channel just as a secondary point of contact. I created it after the forum fail of last year where they were down forever so communication could still flow if that happens again.

If we want to utilize it as a backup for communication I can setup a channel for this game. Here is the link if we are interested. When you join just say your character name and game you are in so I can set permissions appropriately.


Please, do. I forgot to ask about that previously.

So where does everyone want to start with when it comes to the leads? I'm game for dealing with the gangs, which probably means we got to talk to Ladia.

Yup, Stryn's vote would definitely be the gangs first.

Kiley's definitely wanting to put off dealing with ghosts as long as possible, so the Gangs it is!

Henric would also rather deal with the fleshy gangs, first, as well. :p


There is now a map of Roderic's Cove up in the link above, along with a legend denoting where certain things are. Feel free to use it for reference.

Apologies, I'm having an extremely busy work week and am having trouble finding a chance to sit down and post. Please bot me as needed, thank you!


For the record, I do not do harmful or negative effect critical failures. You just miss the target.

I generally don't punish players for bad die rolls. Poorly thought out decisions, on the other hand...well, I can only do so much to save you from yourself.

Oh thank God. My guilt is somewhat relived now. :)

I will keep in mind not to try to make dubious decisions like that again, though.


Oh, that wasn't a dubious decision - that was a very reasonable decision. I'm talking about things like "Attempt to cross a room full of enemies you are aware of and provoking every attack of opportunity along the way" bad decisions. Even if you aren't good at shooting your crossbow into melee, I won't penalize you for that decision.

Ah, I thought that you could stack magical armor bonuses on normal armor. My mistake. :)

You can stack armor enhancement bonuses with normal armor bonuses. Unfortunately, Mage Armor is a normal armor bonus. The only benefit it would give is providing armor bonus vs. incorporeal creatures. So if we wind up fighting a ghost, then it would be a great idea. :)

Just wanted to post this in all my games. Please bare with me over the next month. Some life stuff has complicated my schedule so my posting is a bit slower than usual if you haven't noticed :D.

Long story short, I'm not in my usual office at work, my work hours have changed for the summer and I have one of my graduate classes that meets 2 nights a week for 5 hours each night. Suffice to say its a little hectic. I will do my best to get in at least one post a day but it may be ever other day at least for the next few weeks.

Sorry everyone, we had house guests and I didn't expect to be so busy!

No worries, Kera. No ghosts have murdered us, yet. :)

Possession, though... Yeah... Sorry about that.

:P

Oh boy...

Well, at least the thing we're facing isn't that tough (Not going to say what it is, but I know from the description.) I hope that what Kiley is going to do isn't going to rub anyone the wrong way. I've been trying to hint at her fear of the undead, and given how taken by surprise she was, it's about to be full-blown terror. I know that running in fear isn't the optimal combat choice, but it is what she'd do in this situation.


For the record, Kiley, I'm not entirely sure that you're right that the attic whisperer isn't tough. It's a CR 4 creature, and you guys are level 1.

Yeah, my bad. I'm misremembering things.

Sorry for the foolishness. Here's hoping I didn't get someone killed.


Everyone, I will be on vacation starting tomorrow. I will be limited from my phone, and as I have discovered in the past, it's hard to run the game from my phone. Therefore, we will take a short hiatus until Thursday, when I'll pick things up again, as I will be back at a computer by then.

To all my games: I will be traveling now until July 1. I will have limited access to my computer and phone and will post as I am able, but please bot me as needed. Thanks!

Sorry for the delay all, my class is over so I'm going to work on getting back in the routine of checking the boards regularly. Just wanted to provide an update on my games I am in.


Male Human Occultist 1 | HP 11/11 | AC 17 T 13 FF 14 | CMB +1, CMD 14 | F: +5, R: +3, W: +4 | Init: +2 | Perc: +5, SM: +5 | Speed 20ft | Spells: 1st - 2/2; Mental Focus (4/4) - Evoc: 2/2; Abj.: 2/2 | Active conditions: -1 Str (13/14)

Same here, though Kiley's gamble failed.

I've got to say I think this is some of the worst player rolls I've seen in a long time :P


It doesn't help that an Attic Whisperer has an AC of 19, and your biggest damage dealer is fatigued.


Male Human Occultist 1 | HP 11/11 | AC 17 T 13 FF 14 | CMB +1, CMD 14 | F: +5, R: +3, W: +4 | Init: +2 | Perc: +5, SM: +5 | Speed 20ft | Spells: 1st - 2/2; Mental Focus (4/4) - Evoc: 2/2; Abj.: 2/2 | Active conditions: -1 Str (13/14)

Yeah... it's kind of a nasty encounter for level 1 characters.


Female Human (Azlanti) Enchanter 1|HP 8/8|AC 16 T 12 FF 14|Fort +1 Ref +2 Will +3|CMD 11|Init +2|Per +1|Dazing Touch 7/7|Spells: 1st - 3/4|Active Conditions: Mage Armor|Appearance

We already have the map, which I'm sure will lead to another plot thread. We could just retreat and come back a level or two later.

I'm still game for toughing it out though.


Male Human Occultist 1 | HP 11/11 | AC 17 T 13 FF 14 | CMB +1, CMD 14 | F: +5, R: +3, W: +4 | Init: +2 | Perc: +5, SM: +5 | Speed 20ft | Spells: 1st - 2/2; Mental Focus (4/4) - Evoc: 2/2; Abj.: 2/2 | Active conditions: -1 Str (13/14)

I suspect that we need to deal with this sooner, rather than later, seeing as we still need to talk with the ghost of Sir Roderick (or whatever we're supposed to do). At the very least, we'd have to rest for a night and come back.

But I'm also up for pushing forward, as long as things don't get much worse.

Same here, but if our luck doesn't start changing, I think we may need to seriously consider bugging out and coming back with some holy water.

Ok. Nevermind about the retreat, Kiley (and the RNG) decided to be awesome! \o/

All,

I've grown shorter and shorter on time in recent months, and I kept hoping that my schedule would clear up, but it hasn't. It's gotten to the point where I just have to force myself to sit down and write, and that's completely the opposite of what PbP gaming should be. Wrestling with this dilemma, I've come to the conclusion that I need to cut back, and so I must withdraw from this game.

I appreciate the opportunity to have played with you all. It's been a lot of fun! I hope to have more opportunities to play with you again the future.

Sorry to hear it, Kera. Hopefully life gets less hectic for you so that you have time to enjoy a game or two. :)


Sorry to hear, Kera. I understand completely.

All, I'm going to see if I can find us one or two more people to round our numbers out. I also want to state that you aren't under any kind of time crunch or anything like that, so if you want to fall back to town and come back on the morrow, that is an option for you.


Male Human Occultist 1 | HP 11/11 | AC 17 T 13 FF 14 | CMB +1, CMD 14 | F: +5, R: +3, W: +4 | Init: +2 | Perc: +5, SM: +5 | Speed 20ft | Spells: 1st - 2/2; Mental Focus (4/4) - Evoc: 2/2; Abj.: 2/2 | Active conditions: -1 Str (13/14)

At this point, falling back might not be a bad idea. I'm not sure if we need to go a whole day, but an 8 hour rest may be good.

Sad to see you go, Kera. Hope to play with you again!

Agreed that going back to town would be best.

Allow me to echo everyone in wishing you well and hoping we'll play again.

I'm all for heading back. Kiley's just going to take a moment to process this and use Stryn for a teddy bear.

Happy Brexit 1776, people. I'm one of the new guys mentioned above. I applied to the game during the original recruitment because I'd never heard anything but good about the GM, so I'm please to be here, even if the circumstances could be better. Hope you find more free time in the future, SW.

The PC's profile should be complete, but I hope you lot will give me a slight grace period as I catch up with your posts. From what little I have read though, you seem like a good bunch of players. Looking forward to playing with you.

I, uh... I don't want to disappoint anyone, but I'm not sure I'm going to be much help in that regard.

Madness need not apply.... you're already accepted. :)


That's true.

So, is the plan to fall back to town for the day? Rest and recover a bit?

Hal, since they've already met Audrahni, and you have the Audrahni's Ally feat, I'll have them meet up with you and her once they get back to town.

So, there's a scene I really want to do with Renae, but I don't want to hold everyone up while we work through it. Would it be alright if we did that through spoilers while searching for information?

Heck no it ain't. I for one am eager to read that! PCs personal drama sub-plots are the gravy to any adventure's meat & potatoes.
