Nice posts everyone :) Wish I'd used Draconic too - first time I've ever had the chance and I completely forgot haha

lol yup, something Dale should have thought of as well. We all nailed those rolls for sure.

Let's see how we do in a combat one I guess. Dale can be a bit 'wild' with his explosives.. my apologies in advance.

I don't know why you would choose to do that. I am not messing with you.

You can call him 'Aroden', since that is his name, or 'the wizard', since that is also accurate.

Is the area difficult terrain? Do we need to navigate through the captives?

The area is not difficult terrain. The lighting improves from dark to dim, when within 20ft of the gemstone.

Grand Lodge

The Overseer GM has ruled that a GM may use his or her discretion regarding the special boost to an aid token.

With that said, the table may apply the special boost it earned to an Allied Offensive Aid Token.

I haven't yet passed the Aid Token. Do you want to use it now?

Seems like a decent time to put it to use considering the volume of foes.

Dale would be happy to show them what a real bomb looks like!

Just asking out of ignorance here Quillen:

You can use power attack with a dex to damage ability? Seems so... weird.

I have a similar themed halfling rogue/swash, but more on the defensive side than the offensive side. He'll be going the route of mouser.

Quillen:
Please help me understand how you're using Weapon Finnesse, Fencing Grace, and Power Attack in combat with Dex & Str. I'm not as familiar with your build as you are.

How does See Invisibility factor in for us? You pinpoint him so we have 50% conceal when we attack that square?

Grand Lodge

Not an issue, after he attacked Kahwen and became visible to everyone.

Aroden, I'm not familiar with your 'prescience ability', and I didn't see it explained on your character sheet.

Could you point me to a link for a reference for it?

Thanks.

It is the school ability of the Foresight focused arcane school (variant of the Divination arcane school and eligible for selection with School Understanding).
His exploits are School Understanding (Foresight) and Potent Magic. These function as if he is an Arcanist.
A Foresight diviner would gain Prescience 3+Int/day. An Arcanist would gain it 3+Cha. Aroden counts as an arcanist for this purpose, so 4/day.

The ability:

Foresight wrote:
Prescience (Su): At the beginning of your turn, you may, as a free action, roll a single d20. At any point before your next turn, you may use the result of this roll as the result of any d20 roll you are required to make. If you do not use the d20 result before your next turn, it is lost. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Intelligence modifier.

Thanks.

How old is the baby? I have a four year old and, until about 2 years ago I was operating on 4 hours of sleep or less per night.

How's everyone doing on HP? I'd rather burn through these potions than my wand, but I don't want to hog them.

I agree. I'm down 15 at the moment. I figured you could use the Moderate and then we could use the Lights as needed.

I passed along the Aid Token, without an additional boost from the team.

No worries. I said to use it for the combat but that probably got lost. Hopefully they can put it to use.

Sorry, if I missed that. If any one of you ever want to pull the trigger on an Aid Token, just say so plainly enough for your slow-witted GM to be clear.

Sometimes a post can seem more like a suggestion looking for group consensus. That might be what I misinterpreted. I remember a suggestion or two to boost it and pass it along, too, but no one actually boosted it.

We'll do better with the next one.

IC, Kimiya would be inclined to help all the captives to safety. Mechanically, what would that require? Heal the other 12 and leave them here? Bring them with us? Do we send them out of the tapestry?

As for the mission, I think we stopped the ritual but will attempt to destroy the stone - hope someone heals me if that goes poorly :) I don't know if we can find out any more information - maybe heal the fallen duergar>

As soon as one or more of you meet or exceed the DC, I'm advancing the party through this series of challenges.

The intent is not to leave anyone out, but only to keep up a good pace. You're doing great.

So far...

I can riff on either the perform or distract and try for the bonus to help someone else. I'll keep an eye out and post based on which check we use.

Grand Lodge

The Hao Jin Cataclysm | Gallows of Madness

Checking the number of successes, Missions 2 and 4 are lagging behind the others. Take a look and let me know if either of them appeals to you.

Silver Crusade

Male Nagaji Samurai 6 | HP 51:51 | AC17 T12 F16 | F+6 R+3 W+3 | Init +1 | Percep +9 | Diplo +10 | Intim +16 | SM +

We did 4 so 2 looks good.

Grand Lodge

Sorry, I meant 2 and 5.

Silver Crusade

2 looks more action-oriented and diplo for 5. I'm cool with either so will defer.

Let's go 2, time for some action!

Grand Lodge

The Hao Jin Cataclysm | Gallows of Madness

Just to be clear, one of you will have to volunteer to be the primary for the Wisdom/Intelligence check. Kimiya's already put one Aid Another bonus on the board.

And Kahwen tried to help, bless his tengu heart.

And thanks for the compliments on the GMing. It's a lot more fun, when the party's this imaginative and enthusiastic.

I wanted to add on to the accolades. Other than at PAX Unplugged, almost all my play is with the same core group of players and GMs. It's been great to play with all of you and the pace has been impressive. I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

As an example of both how good GM Lorenzo is doing and how fast we're going - I'm running a table as well and they have done the same missions we have so far.

I've been copying and pasting some of Lorenzo's descriptive text (and altering as necessary.) Although I'm lazy, I'm not so lazy I'd do that if it wasn't so worthy of copying.

And they're still in the Duergar fight so we're about 2 missions ahead of them.

I had a similar thought Quillen. I think we need a longer term solution though. If only any of us other than Kahwen had ranged lol

Not sure if everyone is up - posts says so but only N'Aranav is bold. Regardless, on my next turn all I can do is stand up and get my weapon iirc.

Grand Lodge

The Hao Jin Cataclysm | Gallows of Madness

Sorry. I was in a bit of a rush this morning, and forgot to update that line. We're just waiting on N'Aranav.

Grand Lodge

The Hao Jin Cataclysm | Gallows of Madness

Aroden, what is the duration of your Inspiring Sword? One round?

Folks, it helps me track things, if you spell out and include pertinent buffs/effects in your attack rolls and skill checks. It's a little extra typing on your part, I know, but it helps me avoid time-consuming cross-checks with character sheets.

For example, Kahwen included the bonus from Inspiring Sword in his Acrobatics check, but I couldn't tell if the bonus was factored into his attack with his bow. I added it, giving him the benefit of the doubt and not wanting to delay things waiting for clarification.

Thanks.

Have the cloakers done anything that we've noticed yet? If not, we might want to try talking to them. No idea if that would have any impact of course :)

It is a one round duration at this level, and requires a full-round action to do.

Grand Lodge

The Hao Jin Cataclysm | Gallows of Madness

Aroden, I moved you 5ft toward the chasm.

Kimiya, the cloakers dropped off the stalactites and flew toward their prey (you). Then they opened their toothy maws, ready to...

Stay tuned for Cloaker Actions in Round 2.

Ah I checked the in-game before posting assuming they were still clinging on.

Ah, nonetheless I guess I'll just keep the action Q posted/rolled even though it's sure to add more chaos to this whole thing. At least folks will hopefully get up again during the chaos and ready actions again?

Please let me know how your PCs are coping with the dim light in the cavern.

The humans Dale and Aroden are the immediate concern.
