Escaping the Grave

Ready to rescue some friends (and books)! No character concept yet...


"Doom Girl" // PbP Events // PBP Gameday VIII Player Signups // PbP GM Kit // Aeon Throne MapsPlayer Folder // Pact World Warriors //

Oh, this looks like it will be a great game. Have a wonderful time GMing, Adrian!

Hmm


i still don’t have the rulebook yet, but looking through the forums it seems my Playtest character concept should still work, I will likely make some minor adjustments and need to figure out a new background.

Male Half-Elven Chaotic Good Rogue 1

Ancestry:
Half-Elf (Low light, Elven Speed)
Background:
TBD, want Int boost. Was Pathfinder Hopeful with lore (Demons)
Finesse Rogue Class:
Trap Finder
Skill feat Recognize Spell

Trained in at least Arcane and one other magical tradition. Plans to grab Wizard multiclass at second level.

Pathfinder training: 2 points with Spells, need to look closer at what I spend the other point on.

I haven’t seen the costs for the boons from PTP. Depending on cost, likely to get a Wayfinder and will be tempted to skip first level.

Are some of us going to be Level 2 in this adventure? I was thinking about using my Playtest Points to be Level 2, but I did not want to do it if I was the only one.

I bought the boon to start the character at level 2.

GM Blake posted a PF2 PBP Chronicle template!

I think I may try it out! In other words, I think I am going to make Pip a Barrister bard and be all about the legal system!

Trildyn will start out at Level 1!

Answering Andrew's question over here, yup!

Yep. Envoy's Alliance is the Pathfinder Agent's Union! The perfect place for a lawyer that works pro-bono to get Pathfinders out of trouble.

So Andrew... You said on Facebook that your character is also a barrister? Are we going to have doubled down lawyer awesomeness in this game? Do you want to be from the same law firm or competing firms? I could see fun in both. Of course, maybe our 'firm' is the Envoy Alliance legal department.

Tarbh is a bull-headed (see what I did there?) rube from the sticks of Rahadoum, traveling the world for the first time. He will almost certainly need legal help at some point :P

Salliss thinks it is great that someone else is willing to take on those battles.

His own interests lie more with destroying or banishing demonic forces from the world, especially those close to Kyonin. He had traveled to Mendev in order to learn more of their success against the demons, now he hopes that he will find what is needed within the records of the Pathfinder Society.

----

Bret is battling the demon called Bulk, especially since all the spellbooks, formula books, repair kits and medical kits are 1 bulk each. He will likely end up getting a pack animal of some sort.

Pack animals sound great. I will likely invest in one fairly soon myself.

♫ The law's an important gnomish field
Setting the court's rules and precedents
Sometimes the verdict is appealed
Sometimes it's treated with reverence!
Here truth and deceptions's revealed;
Rely not 'pon persuasion or expedience.
Sometimes Pathfinder records are sealed
And sometimes treated as evidence.

So let us banter in legalese
Like 'habeus corpus' and 'I object!'
We'll argue nonsense as we please
Showing off our very legal intellect
With longish gnomish treatises
Tangentially related in each aspect!
Here's the bill for my firm's legal fees
Really, there's no need to interject!
(And if you think this song's a tease
You've earned this barrister's respect!) ♫

How about we use this time to build our characters together? I'm still working on Pip. Also, Adrian, would you object to giving us a pre-game scene where we can start getting into character?

Purchases complete.

I miss being able to afford a silver and cold iron weapon as a low level character!

Let me know if you would like me to change anything in the profile or Botting instructions.

Top of the Botting is my Recognize Spell Reaction so the GM can just cut and paste when it comes up.

Having had more time with the Guide, I will be buying two boons before play, cost to come off this chronicle.

Resist Corruption
Prerequisites Vigilant Seal Tier 1
Cost 2 Fame

Adversary Lore — Fiend
Prerequisites Vigilant Seal Tier 1
Cost 4 Fame

Given where we are going, I anticipate slotting Resist Corruption.

Hey folks, I think I actually need to drop out of this game. Got a lotta stuff going on, so I don't think I'll be able to participate at the level I'd like.

Y'all have fun, though! Hopefully I'll catch you at a later date :)

No worries, Andrew!

I'll have a post up later today for some pregame shenanigans. If you'd like, let me know what your character is doing prior to the events of this scenario!

@GMAdrian,

We don’t currently have permission to edit the slideshow.

My perception modifier is +6 with +1 circumstance to find traps: Trap Finder

My perception modifier is +5, and is also listed in my header.

Pip would love to roll Society, and has ample skill botting listed in her botting spoiler. You can copy and paste from there!

Hmm

Escaping the Grave

As a side note, this adventure features some undead stuff (surprise!) and references to wounds and the like. I'll keep descriptions on the tame side, but if at any point if I cross the line on grossness and I need to tone it down, please let me know, either here or through PM. I'd be happy to adjust as needed.

I may have missed it, were we asked to slot boons at some point?

My boons are:
Faction: Vigilant Seal
Resist Corruption (resist evil damage 1 for me and any adjacent allies)
Adversary Lore — Fiend (+1 circumstance to Recall Knowledge about Fiends)

I doubt very much that the Adversary Lore will come up this game, but Resist Corruption easily could,

Ah sorry, forgot to ask. Yes, please let me know what boons you have slotted! Thanks, Bret.

Trildyn doesn't have much in the way of boons. I should really do something with my Playtest Points.

Oh, also, how would you like reactions handled, Adrian? Trildyn has a Retributive Strike, which she will use at the first available opportunity. (Trigger: an enemy damages your ally, and both are within 15 feet of you.) She gives her ally 3 resistance and can make a melee Strike against the triggering enemy, if it's adjacent. Should I roll the Strike in a spoiler in case it comes up, or do you want to just roll it in that case?

My reaction Recognize Spell is triggered by a spell being cast.

The very first thing in my Botting area is the appropriate skills so they can be cut and pasted. Since it is supposed to be a secret roll and the skill values don’t change from round to round, I think that is probably a good way to handle Recognize Spell.

I'm not Adrian, but I think that putting retributive strike in a spoiler each time is more efficient for the GM!
