Go for it. It's a general rule, not a lawbook.

Oh. Right. MW backpack is 50g and 4 lbs. Claiming it! (Mostly because it's easier to remember my carrying capacity this way.)

Vixen, since you're about to head out, I think a good idea for your absence, at least for the first week, is that you're carrying the unconscious guy and staying out of combats in the background to protect him.

@samy How excited were you when you started to think people would skip right past their stuff?

Too bad both my character and I have 'Methodical Mind'. :D

I would characterize my reaction more along the lines of wry amusement than excitement, but yes. :D

Keep that Methodical Mind very handy when exploring in the future as well. This should illustrate what my DMing style is when it comes to finding everything in a room. ;)

Exactly what I was thinking when I picked him up! You read my mind (which is not quite as methodical as Erisa's).

lol, part of the fun of being the DM is when the players are absolutely oblivious to the thing right in front of them.

I have a sneaking suspicion she's going to be 'adulting' a lot :D

Heading off for the night so don't expect replies for 10h or so. Feel free to RP in the interim! See you in three weeks, Vixen! Have a good trip!

Thanks, Samy!

I think now's a good time to commit to my three week's no-post time.

@Matsu, VV will repeat the message in Sylvan if you don't know Tien, so go ahead and click the spoiler to find out what she said. ((OoC, I expect a fey knows Sylvan. IC, Matsu looks Tien and VV thinks she's human, not kitsune.))

@GM + Every Player, thank you all so much for the break-neck posting rate. I was surprised to get into a game this close to a vacation and partake in two encounters! (One more successfully than the other!) Having a blast!

VV will be lugging the KO'd guy in the background for a while. See you all in three weeks!

Hey, good luck on your IRL adventure ViVi (sorry, have to put the 'i's in there otherwise I swear it looks like a W to my half-blind eyes).

Don't worry, we should still be mostly alive by the time you come back... probably.


F Human (Keleshite) Paladin (Tortured Crusader) from Katapesh | HP 11/11 | AC 18 | Perception +5 | Campaign Trait Foe of the Strange | Init +3

Have fun Vix!

@everyone else - apologirs for the long post, lots to catch up on; I'm in meetings today so limited opportunities to post further.


F Android Barbarian (Untamed Rager) 1| 12/12 HP|

Busy busy day sorry, I'll post in the morning

Danior:
I hope that post was OK. It seemed like the sort of tactless question someone with no social skills would ask... but if you the player are unhappy with stuff that might appear racially-loaded, then please let me know and we'll drop it :)

Jassminder:
No worries; I don't think Danior even realizes what she is at the moment, but I'm fine with people pointing it out to her.

So... I am thinking that I might end up (assuming we survive that long) focusing on daggers as well as rapiers. The idea is that you can throw a dagger... the normal down side to going with a strict "throwing knives" build for your ranged attack is having to carry all those knives, and having to have spaces to draw them from... but with the ability to literally generate them from the shadow plane that problem goes out the window. In fact, the other problem (you just gave your opponent a dagger to attack you with, and if it is magical at all that might not be a good thing) is solved as well (every time I make a new one the old one evaporates back into the shadow plane). I will have to split my focus a bit to make it really worthwhile, but I think in the long run it will be worth it.

Incidentally, should I use Matsu or Miyuki? Is her culture lastname first or lastname last?

Matsu is the name of the house, Miyuki is her firstname.

Sorry for my lack of posts over the weekend; wife and I are house/barn/horse-sitting for their mother this week, been busier than I expected.


F Drow Fighter (Gloomblade) 1 from Faerûn | HP 10/10 | AC 15 | Perc +6 | Enduring Stoicism | Init +1

I am slightly envious, I am not going to lie. That said the last time I cared for a horse was over two decades ago at summer camp (one of the local YMCAs to where I grew up had horse riding and caring lessons as an option if you were staying there for a week or more, so for a few summers I got the privilege of learning to ride and to do basic care) so I would probably be close to useless in your shoes. Still, glad that you are getting to do something fun. We will try not to get the party killed without you. ;)


F Human Brawler (Hinyasi) from Numeria | HP -5/11 | AC 13 | Perception -4 | Pugnacious | Init +0

Hi everyone! Had a chance to *almost* catch up on reading while my wife was out (salon w/ daughters + meet friend 1:1). As much as VV would love to shout out to other survivors, I'll resist the temptation and leave her quietly carrying the KO'd guy since I doubt I'll have time to even read this game in Japan, never mind post.

Oh, and some people who kept in touch over Facebook have been giving me compliments on my artwork, particularly my most recent drawings of the Vixen. I didn't expect that, and it motivated me to draw a Hong-Kong-inspired scene. (The neon sign is my Chinese name given by my wife.)

Catch ya later!

I'm jealous! My neighbour down the road when I was growing up (like 10 miles down the road) had Shire horses - I think they're called Clydesdales in the US? Enormous things with flared hoofs like dustbin lids...

I'm guessing your mother in law keeps something a little more practical, though :-)


F Human Brawler (Hinyasi) from Numeria | HP -5/11 | AC 13 | Perception -4 | Pugnacious | Init +0

I had some downtime as today is a packing day with plans to meet friends in the evening. I thought of how VV would react and figured, what the heck? Hence my single IC post.

(Oh, and if my above discussion post was unclear, I meant friends and former students I haven’t seen in 6+ years brought up the topic of my artwork in-person. My above post reads like I got likes on Facebook, but I meant Facebook is how my HK friends know I draw stuff. That it became a topic of conversation was a pleasant surprise since digital art is just a relatively new hobby of mine and not something I talk about in mixed company.)


F Dhampir Mesmerist from Varisia | HP 6/6 | AC 14 | Perception +5 | Foe of the Strange

Hey y'all, my apologies, this week has turned out to be incredibly chaotic and exhausting for me. Like my wife said, we've been barn sitting for my mom and I've hardly had a free moment to sit in front of the computer. Hoping to get caught up and post this weekend!


F Human Brawler (Hinyasi) from Numeria | HP -5/11 | AC 13 | Perception -4 | Pugnacious | Init +0

I managed to catch up on reading, so I may be able to post combat rolls from here in Hokkaido, should anything scary happen in one of the rooms.

(If you're interested/curious, every purple word is a link to a photo of flowery rural Japan.)


F Drow Fighter (Gloomblade) 1 from Faerûn | HP 10/10 | AC 15 | Perc +6 | Enduring Stoicism | Init +1

Sorry about the delay, Monday was my birthday and yesterday was rather busy with work and wife's medical appointments. (Nothing to worry about on that score, it was a routine check up on her and our yet to be born son.)


Female Kitsune, Usually Human form Kitsune Sorcerer (Tattood) from Tian Xia | HP 8/8 | AC 11 | Perception +1 | Twitchy

COngratulations!


F Human Brawler (Hinyasi) from Numeria | HP -5/11 | AC 13 | Perception -4 | Pugnacious | Init +0

Fun times, Duke/Malarra! Congrats. If this is your first child, enjoy every stage!


F Drow Fighter (Gloomblade) 1 from Faerûn | HP 10/10 | AC 15 | Perc +6 | Enduring Stoicism | Init +1

Thank you both. First boy, second child. Our three year old is (in my extremely biased opinion) adorable and sweet when she isn't going through a three year oldness. Sadly missed a year of her life due to work, though I did get to skype with her and mom every week during that time... could have been worse.


F Android Barbarian (Untamed Rager) 1| 12/12 HP|

Hey sorry I've been so absent; I just can't get back into the swing of things and I'm gonna drop out so y'all don't hafta keep waiting on me. Thanks for offering a fun game, Samy, hope it's fun and fulfilling for all involved.


F Human Brawler (Hinyasi) from Numeria | HP -5/11 | AC 13 | Perception -4 | Pugnacious | Init +0

On the plane ride home, I watched a Japanese movie called "Samurai Marathon." There was a scene involving two men and a bear, and the jerk character's action made me think of Saiya's morbid punchline:

Saiya Atarangi wrote:
The punchline of a morbid joke flashes through her mind. 'I don't have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you!'

Anyway, back now, so future "VV" posts will have personality.

Also, sorry if I should have waited before rolling Round 2 actions. I was at the baggage claim, and mostly thinking "what do our suitcases look like?" and "where the hell are they?"

Hope I'm not overstepping, but GM, may I suggest that in future combats you roll our initiatives for us? It will make it clearer who can go when, without having to wait for everyone to check in and roll individually.


F Human (Keleshite) Paladin (Tortured Crusader) from Katapesh | HP 11/11 | AC 18 | Perception +5 | Campaign Trait Foe of the Strange | Init +3

I am very happy with having GM roll initiative for me :)

Sure, I can do that. To make that easier, add

| Init +2

to the end of your tagline. (Obviously, replace +2 with the appropriate number.)


F Human Brawler (Hinyasi) from Numeria | HP -5/11 | AC 13 | Perception -4 | Pugnacious | Init +0

Do you want Init +X to come after the "optional" field (Charactr Sheet link in my case)?


F Drow Fighter (Gloomblade) 1 from Faerûn | HP 10/10 | AC 15 | Perc +6 | Enduring Stoicism | Init +1

I am already ahead of the game on that one, ;)

Malarra Rodan wrote:

Good point. I just replaced my char_sheet link with Init +X, since I think I'm the only one who did something weird with the optional field. The Char_Sheet is in my profile anyway, and I "secretly" linked it to the female F. (The other links go to Trait descriptions.)


F Human Brawler (Hinyasi) from Numeria | HP -5/11 | AC 13 | Perception -4 | Pugnacious | Init +0

@Samy,
I want to post (a reply to Malarra), but am trying to hold off until I know what, if anything, "VV" accomplished. {LINK}

The break roll is less about "VV" having a stick (especially since we have someone braver and better-armed than "VV") and more about knowing what your calls are when it comes to breaking stuff to get an improv weapon. The boots are my best improv weapon anyway... except when it comes to antagonizing unseen rodents. Sticking one's leg under a table is not a good way to discover tiny rabid creatures.

Liberty's Edge

Since out of combat, you can easily take long enough to break something. If in combat, I will bother with rolls since there's time pressure. Out of combat, if something is common-sense breakable, you'll get it loose eventually.


F Drow Fighter (Gloomblade) 1 from Faerûn | HP 10/10 | AC 15 | Perc +6 | Enduring Stoicism | Init +1

Power outage here since last night. Will post when back or back at work.


F Drow Fighter (Gloomblade) 1 from Faerûn | HP 10/10 | AC 15 | Perc +6 | Enduring Stoicism | Init +1

Power has been restored and I am back at work to boot. Will post soonish.


F Human Brawler (Hinyasi) from Numeria | HP -5/11 | AC 13 | Perception -4 | Pugnacious | Init +0

I just learned that I can update my profile on my iPad. So I finally added my armor AC.

Assuming I’ll need that armor when we move down that hallway...!


F Human (Keleshite) Paladin (Tortured Crusader) from Katapesh | HP 11/11 | AC 18 | Perception +5 | Campaign Trait Foe of the Strange | Init +3

Yes, just waiting on Samy to tell us what we find there, I think.

I hope it's candy. I like candy :)

Been a crazy week. Should be more available over the weekend now. Sorry for the delay.


F Human Brawler (Hinyasi) from Numeria | HP -5/11 | AC 13 | Perception -4 | Pugnacious | Init +0

OoC, I'm glad Jass' suspicious manner counters VV's hero complex. VV will pretty much label any living NPC as either someone in need of a rescue or someone in need of a kick. She calls the barricade people "dicks" because they don't neatly fit a black or white hat.


F Human (Keleshite) Paladin (Tortured Crusader) from Katapesh | HP 11/11 | AC 18 | Perception +5 | Campaign Trait Foe of the Strange | Init +3

This strikes me as a campaign where would-be heroes who take things at face value have an amazingly short life expectancy.


F Human Brawler (Hinyasi) from Numeria | HP -5/11 | AC 13 | Perception -4 | Pugnacious | Init +0

Got ninja'd, so I deleted my post since it makes no sense as a follow-up to Jass'.

Short version: VV didn't pick the lady up because she begged her not to. Will react to Jass later, but I assume the GM will spring initiative rolls before I get a chance to post.


F Drow Fighter (Gloomblade) 1 from Faerûn | HP 10/10 | AC 15 | Perc +6 | Enduring Stoicism | Init +1

Malarra is somewhere in between I think. Not manic, not paranoid... though not trusting either, nor particularly upbeat. She takes it all in stride. At this point, if doctor grey decided to say where they were, she would note it down and then ask others to see what they say.


F Human Brawler (Hinyasi) from Numeria | HP -5/11 | AC 13 | Perception -4 | Pugnacious | Init +0

Come to think of it, if the Grey 5 ft steps to reach me, that doesn't provoke AoO. Should've gone with Improved Trip or Grapple instead. Oh well.


F Human Brawler (Hinyasi) from Numeria | HP -5/11 | AC 13 | Perception -4 | Pugnacious | Init +0

@Samy,
Please disregard the 5 ft step. It won't save VV or grant her an AoO, so I'd rather leave her close to keep the enemy flanked by three PCs.

Combat Reflexes will prove useful next round *if* I am able to execute another Martial Flex before the doppelgänger executes me!


F Human (Keleshite) Paladin (Tortured Crusader) from Katapesh | HP 11/11 | AC 18 | Perception +5 | Campaign Trait Foe of the Strange | Init +3

Hi - I'm realky sorry for tge lack of posts, for some reason I wasn't getting updates. Apologies to all but especially to Samy.

Will check in now and post actions.
