As a GM, I suppose I can't say things one way or another regarding how trustworthy you can think of this trio, if you all wanted to go downstairs together.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

You'd need to roll religion to know anything about what is and isn't effective against undead. Right now though, it seems unhostile and dosnt even notice you.

Maybe a nice solid Sense Motive roll? Mary has +6, which IMHO is a decent score, but she left already.

The decision was more from an RP perspective. Didn't want to dismiss them like "props" and thought it was an opportunity for more interaction.

Of course they could be more powerful than the entire party if they're 3rd or 4th level. Size doesn't matter. Heck a couple of teamwork feats an be we're toast.

Kaliban was just being prudent. Sense Motive is +10 vs. Humanoids, but the DM has latitude... So, I tend to play RP heavy, more role less roll.

I didn't even want to make the Diplomacy roll.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

I'll playvit on a case to case basis. Most the time you wobt need rolls, but when its clear you want them to do something or are tryibg to shift attitides is when a dice comes into play.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

If this was a video game, this is where you would get a pop up saying "Achievment Unlocked: Prisoner's Last Meal".


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

While Dawn makes some good points... Jane is currently a level directly above you.

Sorry, I was rushing to catch up. Apparently I didn't read very well.

GM,
Did you come up with this entire excursion upon prompting? Cuz I'm impressed. I suspect the tower was originally just scenery.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

*Cough* Wha... What ever gave you that impression? >>


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

Anyone have knowledge local/legal?

Is it finders keepers? Kaliban had dibs on a base of operations. And when the curse is lifted, business will be booming!


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

The captain already informed you it used to be a watchtower, so even if it's not used, it's probably still owned by the Ulnswhere guard.

Yeah, but most governments are willing to work with someone who will pay their costs for things.

Swear fealty, safe harbor (no pun) for the guard, operate the keep.

We can work something out.

Pushy, sure... but that's OK.

The issue in my eyes is that it's basically taking the freedom of other players to do what they want (play how they want to play). And, it's not in character. It's meta.

Also, it could lead to your own frustration if they choose not to see things the same way.

Others may see it differently.

I hope you five do well against the spiders. You do have plenty of healing.

P.S. Posting as SerpentViolet is purely accidental.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

You are free to suggest plans of attack here in discussion, just try to not impose on other players. I would also apriciate you try to keep your OOC questions and chatter out of the game thread as much as possible.

Apologies for not posting today, wasn't really here.

Shall we hammer the chests open, or is someone gonna pop a lock? We might smash potions and oils if we break it.

I think both your lock-pickin' types are upstairs.

"I think we should wait on Emma Jane's or Kaliban's help with the other two chests."

I'm hoping that Mary seeks Kaliban and Emma Jane out in time to be included against spiders. There seem to be no foes downstairs.

Also, if anyone shares my interest in knowing if the armor is valuable or in searching for the hidden catch to a secret door, knock yourself (selves?) out.


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

It's to my advantage with this build, but I always thought monsters of this type (intelligence/skill) would have no understanding of tactics...

Essentially, swarming and streaming around an enemy with no regard to the threat of attacks of opportunity once they attack.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Fastest round of combat I've seen in PBP, but then again, currently just two PCs and myself.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Man, don't knock enchanters. Effective even at level two. Congrats on the shortest combat encounter I've EVER seen period.

Rando,
for an extra 150 gp, you can buy a composite shortbow built for +2 Strength, IIRC; total would be 225 gp, or 525 gp for mwk. IMHO either one is worth saving up for.

I don't know if I can keep up with this post rate. Most days I really only get to sit down and do responses once a day. You guys are burning through posts. Good on ya, but the limits on my participation may make me a poor match for this game.


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've had a couple of exceptional days, will slow down soon. We will probably burn out at this rate.


Female Human Bard 2/Cleric 1 | HP 19/19 | AC: 17, T: 14, FF: 13 | Fort: +2, Ref: +6, Will: +6 | BAB: +1, Melee +4, Ranged +4, CMB: +3, CMD: 16, | Init: +3 | Perception: +6

Yeah, I'm in the same boat, especially in the fall. UJ seems good at pausing the action to let people catch up though.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Games have a tendancy to take a running leap, but I'm well aware that the usually come back to a simmer eventually. I won't deny that seeing so much posting makes me happy, but I'd be foolish to think it'd last like that forever. I'd like you to give it some more time, see how the pacing ends up, but I won't fault you for what you wanna do. This is just a game, after all. Play at your own pace. ^^

Ahem; that being said, I'll get things moving again myself later today when I have the chance.

Yeah, I admit, I've been kinda overwhelmed too. It's why I've been rushing to make posts, so I don't hold everyone up. This is typically the earliest I get on, and I'm more active later, so I don't wanna hold things up.

"Buff"?

Buff & Debuff - stuff that increased or decreased your potency/chances. It's RPG jargon.

Bless, Inspire, Doom, etc...

I've got one. I combined Threatening Defender with Dueling Dagger so with Combat Expertise I deduct 0 on attack rolls and gain +2 on AC when I attack.
I'm also going to use Power Attack and for -1 to attacks get +2 rapier damage (and +1 dagger damage when I attack two-fisted).

GENERALLY BUff and Debuff refer to things that characters do to modify the rolls of others. Bardsong Inspire Courage, for instance, buffs the entire party.

The problem with first come first served is that it encourages people to wait to see if buffs will be applied. <shrug>


Female Human Bard 2/Cleric 1 | HP 19/19 | AC: 17, T: 14, FF: 13 | Fort: +2, Ref: +6, Will: +6 | BAB: +1, Melee +4, Ranged +4, CMB: +3, CMD: 16, | Init: +3 | Perception: +6

I just "Buffed" everyone, for example. Other examples are Bulls Strength, Bless, stuff like that. It's something someone does in combat to help his friends. In fact, it's a big part of a Bard's traditional role in combat.

Hildeborg wrote:

True, but it has the benefit of speeding combat, which can slog sometimes on PBP. Seems like a fair trade, since whoever's affected gets the buff eventually. Pretty minor effect on combat unless you're talking a super-awesome buff, which PCs might actually wait for in character.


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

Well that just leaves Dawn and then the spiders.

Is Celeste inspired by Emma Jane's music? (I know I'm grubbing. Sorry.)

Hildeborg, careful... creatures get +4 CMD for each pair of legs beyond first. So +12.

I was literally just about to point that out.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Shockingly enough though....


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

12 is not enough, though it looks like you forgot the Bardic Inspiration. If you choose to use your Moment of Greatness, you could make either one of those hit.


Female Human - Northland Tribeswoman Fighter (Polearm Master) 3 | HP 24/28 | AC17+ T13+ F14 CMD18+ | F+5 R+6 W+3 | Init+5 | Perc+1 SM+8 | 5/5 AoOs

Yeah, I missed the Bardic Inspiration. Yes, I should use the Moment of Greatness to wallop one of them. In typical opportunistic style, I would choose to use it the FIRST time it could make the difference. <g>


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

Spider gets AoO, if it's got one.


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Added it in, to no effect. Thanks for the heads up though!

Did Dawn wipe out the one north/adjacent of Celeste?


Male Human Starving Artist 12, Freeloader 2

Yes, that one is dead. Two spiders and the big one remain.
