So I have two things I'd rather bring up here rather than the gameplay tab.

The first thing is I have Bands of Unbreakable Camaraderie and if someone wears one while I wear the other it has a few benefits. Its pretty good if you don't have a magical wrist slot item and hate getting hit with a dominated or confused archer. It makes me feel real bad when I hit my party. Does anyone what one of these bands?

The second thing is that my familiar is detecting evil all the time and tells me when he senses something. Its not a big deal for me but Bubbles hates evil and might be telepathically passive-aggressive about the whole thing. Is there anything evil in the party?

Molly, how are you getting a familiar?
I missed that on your character sheet, as I had assumed “Archer” meant fighter archetype.

I used a feat chain. Iron Will into Familiar Bond into Improved Familiar.

Cool. Thank you.

Didn't even know that was an option!

Is Bubbles going to be staying out, detecting evil and the like? (note: using detect evil, either as a spell of SLA, will be noticeable, as all magic has manifestations in Golarian)

Chak might be a good candidate for the armbands. He hits fairly hard and crits often.

The only time Chak will detect as evil is if he has infernal healing active.

He will always be active. He won’t always be detecting evil but if something looks odd to him or I meet someone I haven’t seen before (also Cassisian Angels have perfect memory as per their description) then he will scan them unless I want him to stay incognito.

We have a party of high damage dealers and casters. A potentially dangerous mix. If a healer or dispeller wants the bands they can get first pick, but having the archer and the slayer not attack each other is great too.

One more thing for the group. Because telepathy is a kind of mental intrusion, is there anyone that would not want to have Bubbles talk to them in this manner? I like being able to talk to each other silently and potentially secretly but some player characters did not like something poking around their brains.

Notes Huritt has several items that can take effect out of turn: aegis of recovery, bracelet of second chances (7), gloves of arrow snaring. He will have a lot of spells active once we go adventuring, but won't know exactly which ones until the characters learn a little about the mission, location, etc. Also, I PMed you a lengthy rules discussion.

Riddywipple does the same, though usually he speaks aloud.

@Balik: If Huritt's lie becomes unfun for you at any point, just let me know. But it's rare to have another PC play along this well, so I'm going to run with it as far as I can.

Huritt, no problem! Balik's notably insane, so I'm happy to let him roleplay any delusions! (He walked around for around 8 levels with the skull that you find in the first room of Bonekeep on his shoulder, because he felt bad that the dead pathfinder didn't have a very long career. After he did Eyes, I figured the Decemvirate would make him raise that poor soul; he became my protege boon character. Crazy...)

On a related note, Molly has never challenged a king (real or otherwise) to a foot race before, so that will be one for the bucket list if there is time to do it.

Also I added a token for Bubbles but he will generally stay on my head as my helm. A thing to keep in mind is that Bubbles has perfect memory and will tell me things that I might forget and/or will tell me if something I am doing is violating a rule of this contest. Kurgess hates violating rules.

Knowledge (nature) to identify?

Dark Archive

Academy of Secrets | Shades of Ice

Nope. In the spoiler, you'll see conditions, adjustments, and knowledge checks you can make.

Definitely not nature.

Though if you wanted to make the check, you might learn something

Dark Archive

Academy of Secrets | Shades of Ice

As for knowledge checks... I don't do the 20 questions game. I give each character making the checks information that he or she should care about... and often more than a single "question" would give... especially since "none" is not a piece of info I'd likely be giving.

As noted before, if you need healing you may stand in the Greater Path of Glory to recover 44 hit points. The student was also placed in the Path.

FYI - I am sorry about the lack of posts this week so far... I tore my achilles Monday, and have been dealing with that.

I'll be honest... I've been a bit out of it, since... this finishes by softball season, and possibly career (if the team doesn't come back next year). Also, been communicating with the Gen Con team, to make sure that they know I'll need some additional support, etc.

Thank you for understanding.
