Now to get my docs in place and work up an intro. We leave on vacation on Saturday. At that point I will not be able to scan any images from the module, but I will *probably* have time to post so I just need to get my act together before then and get some of the images ready and maybe we can start sooner than expected.

Lukian will unfortunately be unable to join us so I will definitely be looking for a couple of players to fill in the party. Vacation is almost over so expect a post withing the next few days.

I'm prepping for PaizoCon, so I will likely not be active until the 28th or 29th, as a heads up

Sounds like as good a starting time as any, though I will try to get things started with intro/briefing posts before then.

I've requested some players in Flaxseed.

I'm going to fly to PaizoCon this afternoon! So my posting rate will be slow till monday evening :)


We were not planning on doing much until then anyway. Aurus is also out of commission until the 28th so that seemed a good time for the official kick-off.

The Exchange

Male Dwarf Bard 4 | AC: 17/10/17 | HP: 32/32 | Fort +3, Ref +3, Will +7 (+2 vs poison/spells/SLA's, +4 vs performance/sonic/language-dependant) | CMB +3, CMD 11 | Init +0 | Perc +9 | Performance: 18

Player Name: SodiumTelluride
Character Name: Goldur Twinthunders
PFS #: 89635-9
Day Job: Profession (scribe): 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (17) + 9 = 26

Goldur is very much a support character-- not great in melee combat, even worse in ranged combat, but has lots of skills and makes everyone else better at what they do.

Only two bards?? I'm hurt! Aurus did his correspondence course in bardic performance... :P

Realized that he has hit level 5 with the special, so I'll stat him up quick (yay more hitpoints!) and have him show up to the briefing today or tomorrow.


You should speak up! It would delight Alex to find out there is a third bard.

Apropros of nothing related to this particular game, we should keep an eye out for an online con run of Siege of Gallowspire. I ran it this weekend, and it is a TOUGH scenario, but the group I was running for had a really good time. Lowest tier is 5-6 though, so maybe these characters wouldn't be the right fit for, oh, say a year or two out. I'd be more than happy to run it again.

Definitely worth looking into playing with your non-Core PCs if any of you are going to IRL conventions, though - but bring your A-Game!


You guys are going to need to come up with a plan to get inside. Walking up to the front gates and asking nicely will not work, nor will trying to battle your way in in time honored PFS fashion. Remember there is that secret entrance you know about, if you can get to it unseen.


The fatigue came because of the travelling, re-balancing at this point will not help get rid of the fatigue. It really isn't all that important of a decision whether to camp or not to. I'll just roll for an encounter if you spend the night vs. taking some penalties during the search if you don't.

I'll be gaming on Saturday, and I'm working on an issue at work today so time is tight for the next couple of days. So don't worry about the RL time this is taking. I've actually appreciated the breather with all else that is going on.

Work was bonkers for me too - spent yesterday afternoon riding in Boston commute traffic with a literal ton of robots in a trailer - so happy that our slacking worked well for you :)


Hmmm...

Mao, you out there? I'm going to send you a PM and I hope you show up.


I think we lost Mao. I really hate to bump him, but if I have not heard from him by tomorrow I'll try contacting one of the others that posted in recruitment and get a 5th.

Grand Lodge

*Waves*

Checking in, as requested :-)

I need to update him with his latest chronicle sheet, but apart from that, he is good to go!


Great. Check into gameplay when ready. We will assume you were with the group from the beginning.

Going out of town for a trip into NYC, so I'll be back late tomorrow - feel free to bot Aurus is it comes to Smitin' Time!

(but don't use the smites I only get, like, two of those)


With the party size up to 6 I worry that most of the encounters are going to be a cake walk. Is it PFS legal to beef the encounters up? I know there is such a thing as campaign mode that allows some changes, but frankly I have no idea if it would apply here or what leeway that gives.

Grand Lodge

It is *not* PFS-legal to beef-up encounters, but depending on the situation, it might be possible to chain encounters (say, for example, once the alarm is raised, we may eventually have practically every Hobgoblin in the fortress descend upon us).

That said, it is worth noting that the module assumes campaign mode; we are supposed to all *start* the module at 4th level, and be 5th level by the time we get to the final set of encounters.

Given that we have a level spread of 3rd to 5th (and because we are running PFS characters, we *don't* level-up during the module), early encounters may be easy, but the later encounters will still probably be difficult.

Also, we're core characters, so not tricked out too much!

Silver Crusade

Half-elf Paladin 4/Bard 1/Dragon Disciple 1 | HP 62/62 | AC 21; Tch 13; FF 18 | F +9; R +8; W +9 | CMB+8; CMD 20 | Speed 30 ft | Init +2 | greatsword (PA feat) +7 (2d6+13, 19-20/x2) | Perc +11, Kn:Arcana +9, Kn:Engineering +1, Kn:(other) +0

I played this one years ago with a very bludgeon-happy GM, and we did wind up pulling nearly the whole keep - so it's very possible and very doable.

Plus, two of the characters are Core bards that won't overlap with inspiration, so that should really make us, like, a 5.5-character party. And Aurus is really only a level 4 paladin with some bard spellcasting.

We'll play and have fun no matter what :)


Sounds good. And the latter encounters will be more of a challenge. As long as it is fun for the players I'm good.


I may have to drop Mao. A posting rate of once per week won't cut it.


Starting a weeks worth of vacation tomorrow with a days worth of travelling. It will barely slow me down though. Expect me to keep up the posting rate once I've settled in, but you won't hear from me for a day or so.

AFAIK Orcish Ferocity is a choice, so if you can't heal yourself/not close to allies, you can choose to go down.

I know

Grand Lodge

The only person who could have a readied action in place was Goldur, and he already posted it ;-)


This could be a tough battle, particularly if they roll well and you don't. Bring your 'A' game and use up some of the resources you might have saved for later.

Grand Lodge

What resources? I just shoot arrows :-P


Which there are lots of just lying about!


Explain the cover thing. From the rules it says "To determine whether your target has cover from your ranged attack, choose a corner of your square. If any line from this corner to any corner of the target’s square passes through a square or border that blocks line of effect or provides cover, or through a square occupied by a creature, the target has cover (+4 to AC)."

How do you avoid crossing purple in drawing a path to green? Or am I ignorant of some other rule?

Do you have to make an acro check to leave a greased area?

Grand Lodge

*Does some digging*

Huh. Well, apparently, for 'low cover' if your opponent isn't closer to it than you are, it doesn't grant a cover bonus to AC.

For 11 years, I have been seeing that applied to *all* cover!

In that case, I will only make a single attack (which means my attack roll on the first one is 2 points higher), since presumably these guys are actually wearing armor ;-)

Re: Grease, the spell description specifies: 'A creature can walk within or through the area of grease at half normal speed with a DC 10 Acrobatics check.'

I was doing neither - the first square I stepped into was not covered by Grease (in the same way that difficult terrain only inhibits you when you step into it, not out of it).


It was that 'within' that made me wonder. Imprecise term could mean walking out of it too. But I don't think I've ever seen it GMed that way. Which is why I asked.

I don't think these guys count as low cover so I think they get the full +4 AC. At least that is how I've been ruling for the gobs aiming at you guys. If not, please explain further why it is +2 instead of +4.


Well done. I think with Gronk's passing, you are out of the high danger range.

Hey all,

Sorry for going dark - on a family vacation right now and got the news that a close family friend unexpectedly was killed in a car accident. I'll get on as I can, but might be spotty for the next week or so.


I just figured with the con this last weekend things would pick up when everyone got back and settled. Too bad that wasn't your reason. Sorry to hear about that.

Thanks for the bot - finally home, but definitely slept in and took some decompression this morning. Back in the saddle!


Cool. Glad to have you back and beating bugbears and hobgoblins senseless.


I need to remember to carry the module with me when I leave home. I could have responded a lot sooner if only.

As an FYI, I'll be camping tomorrow mid-day through Sunday, so don't wait for Aurus - have him hit hard and hit often while I'm away!
