Nice work, and some good rolls after that awesome initiative set! Spice Girls for the win. I'm obviously Posh Spice.

Ok, some questions.

@Brevka - who is Kirpi, and what were the bodyguard rolls for?

@Lyra'an' - do you add 1d8 with every dagger attack?

@Lilamma - do we automatically gain the benefits of raging song - I'm still not clear? I for one am obviously happy to accept it!

Oh, gods. That makes me Baby Spice, doesn't it? :(

Don't say that like it is a bad thing! You have loads of talent! ;)

Kaxajta:
You have to choose to get the raging song bonuses: "When the skald begins a raging song and then on each ally's turn, if the ally can hear the raging song, that ally must decide whether to accept or refuse its effects. This is not an action. Unconscious allies automatically accept the song. If accepted, the raging song's effects on that ally last for that ally's turn or until the song ends, whichever comes first."

@Thanks Lilamma. So it only lasts one round for us only, or we can choose to accept it round by round?

(also Lilamma, I read your backstory. Too funny).

Round by round, or util the song ends

Thankies for the kind words on my backstory. ^^

I add 1d8 any time I meet the conditions for sneak attack (flank/opponent flat footed or helpless) and I'm using a light blade. Instead of the normal d6's for sneak attack, I use d8 with light blades and d4 with anything else

Kirpi is her Protector Hedgehog Familiar. He has Combat Reflexes, Dex 16, and doesn't have to be able to reach people to Aid Another Brevka's AC. So he just sits in a pouch and chitters with surprising effectiveness.

Hmm... Lilamma as Scary Spice seems good (though we've obviously got some competition there!)

Let's see, one of us did a lot more of the work, while the other one still was better at nabbing the spotlight... I'll take Sporty and Lyra'an can be Ginger? :-p

Lol

So what does our SOP look like after we finish one of these bouts? There are some ominous rumblings about contacting Terrix about us, but I'm not if we have expectations of where we're supposed to go at this point.


That's kind of on me. Sorry for the delay in posting--I'm going to update the campaigns I'm running now.

No worries! :-)

What is SOP?

Oh, and thanks for answers folks! One more though - Brevka, why were there multiple rolls for Kirpi/what were they for?


SOP = Standard Operating Procedure

I believe Kirpi's rolls were potential uses of the Bodyguard feat. Since the hedgehog has Combat Reflexes, it gets multiple attacks of opportunity. Anabel's spirit animal has similar tactics, but doesn't have Combat Reflexes so can only do it once per round.


Female Half-Orc Primal Spelleater 1 | HP 14/14(16) | AC 15 (13), T 11 (9), FF 14 | CMD 17 | Fort +7(9), Ref +3, Will +4(6) | Init +1 | Perc +0 | SM +0 | Performance Combat +5 | Rage Rounds 7/7

Anabel's got it two for two!


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Ok, but I still don’t understand.

Kirpi made four Aid Another rolls. Who was Kirpi aiding?

I looked at Bodyguard - was Kirpi adjacent to us, and was Kirpi aiding us, or just Brevka?

Bodyguard wrote:
When an adjacent ally is attacked, you may use an attack of opportunity to attempt the aid another action to improve your ally’s AC. You may not use the aid another action to improve your ally’s attack roll with this attack.


Female Fetchling Knifemaster 1 | HP 10/10 | AC 16 (14), T 14 (12), FF 12(10) | CMD 14 | Fort +1 Ref +4, Will +0 | Init +10 | Perc +4 | SA +1d8

I think since he's in Brevka's space he's essentially always aiding her. The multiple rolls are that due to combat reflexes he can use an "attack" multiple times a round, except in this case the attack is an aid another attempt.


Loyal Bodyguard (Ex) wrote:

A protector gains Bodyguard and Combat Reflexes as bonus feats. If the familiar is sharing its master’s square, it can use Bodyguard to aid another to improve its master’s AC even if it doesn’t threaten the attacking foe, though it still needs line of effect to its master and the attacker.

This replaces alertness and improved evasion.


Female Fetchling Knifemaster 1 | HP 10/10 | AC 16 (14), T 14 (12), FF 12(10) | CMD 14 | Fort +1 Ref +4, Will +0 | Init +10 | Perc +4 | SA +1d8

So he's basically buffing her AC against every incoming attack

Ok, thanks for explaining it!

Starting in a little while, I'll be on little mini vacation with the family, so may not post until Sunday.


Female Half-Orc Primal Spelleater 1 | HP 14/14(16) | AC 15 (13), T 11 (9), FF 14 | CMD 17 | Fort +7(9), Ref +3, Will +4(6) | Init +1 | Perc +0 | SM +0 | Performance Combat +5 | Rage Rounds 7/7

Sorry I keep missing these time-zoned Brevka questions!

Anabel and Lyra'an have explained it all, but I do also try to keep my profile fairly comprehensive, so if there's a special ability that's not making sense, it should be in there somewhere :-)


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

'S Ok, I just have a major difficulty understanding applications/rules/mechanics sometimes! I can read the rules, but how they are utilised still confuses me. I'm still not sure why Kirpi rolled four times! Were those rolls to pre-empt any possible attacks from our foes?


Female Half-Orc Primal Spelleater 1 | HP 14/14(16) | AC 15 (13), T 11 (9), FF 14 | CMD 17 | Fort +7(9), Ref +3, Will +4(6) | Init +1 | Perc +0 | SM +0 | Performance Combat +5 | Rage Rounds 7/7

Yeah they were pre-emptive. Since Brevka had dashed off into the midst of things I thought it was reasonably possible that she might get attacked 4 times(!)

In later turns I didn't do so since she wasn't as likely to get ganged up on. Probably should've dropped in at least one Kirpi roll per turn, but ::shrug::

Also, definitely worth noting (just in case there's any confusion) Kirpi doesn't negate attacks, he basically just gives Brevka +2 AC against the first 4 attacks against her each round. (Unless he rolls a 1...)


Will get a post up in the morning!


Female Half-Orc Primal Spelleater 1 | HP 14/14(16) | AC 15 (13), T 11 (9), FF 14 | CMD 17 | Fort +7(9), Ref +3, Will +4(6) | Init +1 | Perc +0 | SM +0 | Performance Combat +5 | Rage Rounds 7/7

Firstly, the current scene is totally within my comfort zone to read - no need or desire for it to stop or be any different, but since we're feeling each other out towards the start of a campaign, I wanted to say that the current sex scene is more explicit than I'll likely be interested in writing. :-)


Alrighty--good to hear.


Female Half-Orc Primal Spelleater 1 | HP 14/14(16) | AC 15 (13), T 11 (9), FF 14 | CMD 17 | Fort +7(9), Ref +3, Will +4(6) | Init +1 | Perc +0 | SM +0 | Performance Combat +5 | Rage Rounds 7/7

Great!

And just to be clear, I'm not being coy; I'm not shy or retiring and if I'd wanted y'all to tone it down I'dve said so :-p


Female Tiefling (Kiton Born) Skald 1 Init +2 Hp 10/10 AC 17 T 14 FF 15 Fort +4 Ref +2 Will +1 Spd 30 DR 2/Silver Perc +3 Pic

What? A sex scene? Where?

I was sleeping! 41 posts while I was sleeping! Naughty ones!


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

I had 43 new posts and freaked out. Happily they were mostly "private", and weren't waiting on me.

FYI: As a general rule I don't read scenes where my character is not present so as to keep my character's knowledge limited to distant third person narrative.

For my part, I enjoyed my reading. It was well written, and well balanced between hot and tender.

Well, it's lucky for Anabel that Erevas lived, though it may make things a little awks if they meet on the sands...Don't let House Volatexia find out, nothing would please them more...


Female Half-Orc Primal Spelleater 1 | HP 14/14(16) | AC 15 (13), T 11 (9), FF 14 | CMD 17 | Fort +7(9), Ref +3, Will +4(6) | Init +1 | Perc +0 | SM +0 | Performance Combat +5 | Rage Rounds 7/7

I'm holding off a bit to let Lyra'an show or flake once back from vacation :-)


Female Tiefling (Kiton Born) Skald 1 Init +2 Hp 10/10 AC 17 T 14 FF 15 Fort +4 Ref +2 Will +1 Spd 30 DR 2/Silver Perc +3 Pic

Yeah, it would have been kinkier if Erevas was another kind of stiff..^^

I'm back, and apparently, you've all been busy. 53 posts to catch up on.

Heheh live every day like it's your last.


Hey folks, sorry for the delay in posting.

I'll start replying to people's posts in the morning.


Edited my post. :)


Female Half-Orc Primal Spelleater 1 | HP 14/14(16) | AC 15 (13), T 11 (9), FF 14 | CMD 17 | Fort +7(9), Ref +3, Will +4(6) | Init +1 | Perc +0 | SM +0 | Performance Combat +5 | Rage Rounds 7/7

You sure it's allowed? ;-)

Sneaking around on behalf of true romance/earning rewards*/being a reward* adds a lot of potential drama ::waggles eyebrows::

*This can be fighting like hell so that you can spend a night together without having to bribe a guard/sneak out of your cell rather than coercive stuff


Eh, I can handle it.

Fair enough :-)

I'm definitely hoping to deal with Nathrae's return still, and Brevka wants to ask Anabel(or Kaxatja, or if she figures out that Lilamma's actually knowledgeable about things, Lilamma) about that token she found on the sands before we head back out there, but I'm cool to skim over a bit of the baths, since Brevka and I are both happy to leave Lyra'an on a simmer for now.

If she's planning to press the issue, or has other business that's fine too, of course. ;-)
But I don't have any more beats that I'm actively looking to hit before we progress from there.

Sorry. Been a very hectic week. Will get back on track.


Wanted to give everybody a heads up. I'm in Hurricane Dorian's potential path, but I work for a local news station so I'll likely be working 12-hour shifts starting in the next few days and throughout the week. Posting will likely be sporadic, especially if we lose power at home. GM, please bot me as necessary.

Really sorry for the radio silence these past few days. Been stressing out a bit over the school year starting soon.

I'll try to get a post up to move things along around noon tomorrow.

No sweat ExtraTalefulKitty. School starting should stress anyone out.
