[PbP Gameday VIII] GM Crunch and the Fires of Karamoss

Game Master Saving Cap'n Crunch

Slides

Portal Actions:
  • A) You carefully attempt to unwrap excess wires and other components from the portal rings.

    Dexterity or Disable Device

  • B) With the scrap all across the room and help from the console, you scrounge up materials to dampen the portals’ power.

    Knowledge (engineering) or Survival

  • C) There are many eldritch runes scrawled around the portals, which appear to conjure hotter flames than usual. You carefully find and scratch out the most important ones.

    Knowledge (planes) or Spellcraft

  • D) Large power cells have been improperly fit in the portal housings to boost their output. You use brute strength to wriggle them out or find a way around magical adhesives holding them in place. As less integral pieces, you could also smash them, but it could be perilous.

    Strength or Use Magic Device, or just melee damage

    Day Job: Survival (Hunting Lodge): 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (9) + 10 = 19
    Any special things, abilities, boons, etcetera: Roldala can Enlarge herself 1/adventure as an SLA, and is mighty good at sundering things. Otherwise she's pretty straightforward.

    Oh, actually she has one ability which is worth pointing out. When Roldala or any of her allies reroll a check to escape a grapple, an Escape Artist check, a Will save against a compulsion effect, or a Reflex save to avoid being entangled, staggered, or paralyzed, that character may roll two dice and use the better result.

    Once per adventure, she may grant herself or an ally a free reroll when attempting one of those checks. - If you ever want this, go ahead and take it; I trust you'll use it well :-)

    Enora's got like a +13 or something at level 7 I think. Not sure if that's reliable enough...

    Haha hi Roldala and Nowruz! Frontline looks stacked enough to me! Imperia is one chronicle away from being a switch hitter, so I think the frontlines are looking pretty sharp as it is!

    Wands are always DC 20, having one person who can use it would be nice, but we could always get a wand of infernal healing instead.

    For those who aren't GMing games or haven't seen the Lodge posts, Gameday start is being delayed until September 7th. The good folks at Paizo are doing their best with this and other things, but there are still a lot of scenarios missing. It's a bummer, especially with the rich dialogue you've had going. But here's hoping it all goes okay for everyone involved.

    Open House is when the parents are invited to meet their students' teachers. I've learned it is a very American thing, which the international school I teach at has adopted. As the teacher, I had to present on my class to the parents for each of my classes (of which there are five). It started at 6 and lasted until 8!

    Ah, here we have Parents' Evenings.

    Parents come individually (with or without children) to meet teachers for five-to-ten minutes. We do one class at a time and they usually go from about 4pm to 7/8 pm.

    To your point, GM, I think it is mostly just to give a certain kind of parent peace of mind.

    Mylwara, the biggest difference between our versions is that kids were explicitly not allowed.

    Overall, I like them, but I can see it get old real quick.

    Yeah, I know. It's a shame, but real life comes first. I should've asked immediately afterward, but do we want a new sixth? Not quite sure if we can because Gameday, but nothing big has happened yet.

    A divine caster would be great, or maybe an occultist or alchemist?

    So, yeah, my vote is for a replacement.
