I might just be an old man, but I think that has more to do with age than with nationality.

I'm not that old.

...yeah I am.


Male Half-Orc Fighter 2/Rogue 1 HP 23/32, AC19/T13/F16, Saves F+5/R+5/W+3, Perc +6, Init +4

What are you guys calling old?


I'll open with 3 grandchildren and retired from one career already. You?


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Early-mid twenties right here, still at that point where I feel younger then I actually am.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

I'm 35, but have 4 kids so I feel really old.

What's "Soviet" Britain? Are the Reds messing with your elections too?

Just a turn of phrase, no need to think hard on it.

As is obvious, I'm back, so if you'all are waiting on me, we can start.

P.S. I just turned 50 six weeks ago, so I'm old. Got a colonoscomy to look forward to this month as a birthday present.

It's a joke, yeah. A lot of people call us Communists because we have healthcare that won't bankrupt you, assistance for living on low or no pay and the like. But we're a pretty capitalist bunch, really, especially with our current Government.

...where a guy we didn't elect is shutting down the Parliament we did elect so he can ram through whatever he wants.

Gonna request before things progress further to leave the political talk to in-game politics only.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Whoops, yeah, sorry about that. Mildly irritable.


Mix lemonade mix into the Go-Litely. Just do it. Makes it a little less nasty.

Here we are. Let's get things going then, shall we? Feel free to introduce your characters as you post, though by this point you've known eachother for at least half a week or more.

*Snrk* Well played, Rando. You may all continue.

Put this question on Discussion to keep Gameplay uncluttered:

This directed at me? If so, I'm much more bard than cleric; Emma Jane considers her time with the sisters as part of her bardly training only.

Yes. If he's seen any indication of the Divine, that's what he sees/associates with in Emma. He didn't call her a priestess, just sees her as one.

Fair enough, though she'll find that odd.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Wastelanders certainly are an odd bunch.

RP fodder.

I'll try to add some background to the character sheet.
But, short version...

He's alone, exiled, tribe of one... and in a sense "barred from heaven."

Amidst the violent Peerless Wastelands, his people sought and were commited to a Path of Peace (monks, clerics, druids, etc...) NG and pacifists.

A warrior caste protects the people, by fighting in self defense. Literally, no offense. They cannot take the fight to the enemy. And, even in that service they are barred from heaven although they have the pride of protecting the people, their home... it's a sacrifice they "gladly" take on.

But, he saw that they would lose a coming battle and decided to enact a pre-emptive strike (rogue) and killed the enemy's commander under cover of night.

The enemy forces retreated (think Ghengis Khan, how he died)... But, for breaking tradition, rules, etc... Kaliban was "Forgotten" and dead to his people... banished to walk forever alone in exile.

So. yes... he is drawn to the bard/cleric... perhaps as an ideal? Comfort, enlightenment?

EDIT: also, he was walking towards her/Emma.... but, at the last moment, turned to speak with Hilde - a type of interaction he's more familiar with.

Okay, edited my post to reflect that.

Gamemaster,
So are we there yet?


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

If the concensus is to visit the tower, I can time-skip to you arriving. I originally stated it was about half an hour out, so far you've been talking, let's say... five minutes. Is this everyone's plan then (or at least, the majority)?


Male Half-Orc Fighter 2/Rogue 1 HP 23/32, AC19/T13/F16, Saves F+5/R+5/W+3, Perc +6, Init +4

I think it is, people were hedging... But no one has said no.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Hm, suppose it is then. Alright, give me some time and I'll get everyone there. Feel free to move about the cabin meanwhilst.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Forgot about your companion, I'll add it to the map next time I need to update. If you'd like to have a picture like the others, you can add an avatar to your alias.


female human Ranger (Sky Stalker) 2 | HP 20/20 | AC: 17(18), T: 13, FF: 14(15) | Fort: +4, Ref: +7, Will: +1 | BAB: +2, CMB: +6, CMD: 16, | Init: +5 | Percep: +6

Does someone have Knowledge [Engineering] to check the soundness of the architecture?

P.S. I forget how to search the site for avatars.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Paizo / My Account / Account Settings / Messageboard Setting

From there, click edit on the alias of choice, and you can change the avatar there.


Male Half-Orc Fighter 2/Rogue 1 HP 23/32, AC19/T13/F16, Saves F+5/R+5/W+3, Perc +6, Init +4

Kaliban was speaking generally, not from any engineering stand point... We don't know what the other side looks like.

What is half the tower is missing dropping into some pit, landslide or covered carnivorous vines? No offense to present company.

BTW, I know this is Play by Post, but sometimes it seems to make incremental jumps in action while I'm away. Feel free to bot healing from me if you end up needing it and I'm lagging significantly.

Well if no one slotted it (Engineering), then at least Emma Jane can attempt the check untrained?


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

In regards to that, your Northlander actually does have Engineering as a skill, if she wanted to check for stability.

Interesting how we have two not-barbarian barbarians from opposite ends of the world...

Nice avatar pick, BM. I'll update the map with it next time too.

No jumping! Easy does it...

The whole rage thing is a bit stereotypical (haha)... Salt & Pepper!

I knew someone had it.

Is there an icon for a horse or an actual hippogriff we can use? As long as everybody's using an avatar on the map.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

You can just find me a picture for her online, no biggie.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Survival can be used to locate and follow tracks, but on it's own it cannot identify the source. Knowledge (local and Nature in this instance) is required.

Ok, I've got a pic off the 'Net for Celeste. How do I send it to you?


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Just a url link should suffice.

I hope this is specific to the particular jpg I selected.

Btw, "monstrous vermin" was a nod to Kafka.

WOW. You guys seriously posted over and over again today. I went to work, and then spent the evening working three different Scouting things, including telling a young man that the unit is denying support to his application to make the eagle rank. Just now getting to my computer.

33 new posts. Little bit of reading for me to do . . ..


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Everyone certainly has been a busy bee, which makes me pretty excited too. I know it won't stay that active all the time forever, but it's a good confidence booster.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Just gonna Leroy Jenkins it, I see. Interesting plan, let's see how it plays out... ;)

I'll wait on the rest of the party, see what they're doing to prepare as they presumably follow the over-eager pirate.

Those with at least BAB +1 can draw weapons as they enter.
And yes, I didn't think first.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Luckily, failing an aid another (even a one) does not negate a success.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

One of the downsides of an Animal Companion, is that it has it's own separate rolls for things like stealth. If you and the companion had the teamwork fest that centered around stealth, it'd be a different matter.

Ioun Torch? In your gear list.

IS it? The player regularly makes that purchase, but I don't generally have the cash for a level 1 grunt . . ..

Oh, yeah. Not level 1.

Edit: Didn't have the money here, either, until I downgraded a weapon from Masterwork so I could contribute to the Wand of CLW. Everything on the gear list form the Ioun Torch down was bought because of that reduction.

Not sure how to play this, but I feel a bit left out being the only PC to stay behind, nor is Emma Jane really enough of a combat threat to handle three opponents if they decide to pull something.
