I feel your conflicts there... It sucks to spend the little time we have on playing something we don't enjoy, but on the other hand losing contact with people sucks too...
But good to hear you had a happy ending there.

And just like you, I haven't been able to enjoy 2E at all.

That's a lovely ending, I'm glad things managed to work out. It just goes to show how important it is to regularly check in to see how everyone's enjoying it.

I'm quite fond of 2E myself, but I've only had experience GMing it and I can't deny that in the end that campaign (my homebrew magnum opus) kind of floundered. Now I have no non PbP groups to speak of and that is really unfortunate. Maybe I should get the group together again for something sometime...

I am also very fond of 2E both as a player and as a GM. But I'm very happy whenever people are able to play the game they want to play.

I play a crazy number of 1E games even though it's not my first choice anymore - some games predate 2E, some games that I happily stumbled into. This game, for example, I absolutely adore.

Hurray for healthy communication!

I'm with GM and Sherman, I don't care for 2E. I like the complexity of 1E, it keeps my brain busy, and I need that. Fortunately there seem to be plenty of players in both camps, so everyone can find a game they like.

Just a precaution cast, i have the slots thanks to oracle protection from evil is a big spell but everyone knows the important bits

the subject gains a +2 deflection bonus to AC and a +2 resistance bonus on saves. Both these bonuses apply against attacks made or effects created by evil creatures.

And the second is for spells and saving throws.

We have 2 minutes 30 seconds in total should help


Farmageddon

I know you all won't take the demon's offer, but she doesn't. If anyone feels like now is the time to attack, we'll roll iniatitive. She's not so into the negotations that she isn't ready to throw down at the first sign of hostility.

*Merry and Pippin meme* We've had one spell effect, yes. But what about the second spell effect?

d20PFSRD Protection From Evil text wrote:
Second, the subject immediately receives another saving throw (if one was allowed to begin with) against any spells or effects that possess or exercise mental control over the creature (including enchantment [charm] effects and enchantment [compulsion] effects, such as charm person, command, and dominate person). This saving throw is made with a +2 morale bonus, using the same DC as the original effect. If successful, such effects are suppressed for the duration of this spell. The effects resume when the duration of this spell expires. While under the effects of this spell, the target is immune to any new attempts to possess or exercise mental control over the target.

Heh, I think I had the exact same discussion with GM some ago, but his ruling then was the same as now :)
And it's fair, making immune to dominate etc. is quite powerful effect for 1st lvl spell.

While, I would love to not be nauseated, I agree with the GMs ruling.

Looking through the forums, I've seen differing opinions. The wording is what sticks out to me. "mind control over the target" would be a subset in my opion.

I'd expect them to use the term 'compulsion' or 'mind-affecting' if they meant to include all of those spells. While we wouldn't encounter it in society play, an evil teammate wouldn't be able to cast bless on his companions if all were included while prot-evil was up.


Farmageddon

I appreciate the support, I really do. I dread having to debate rules with players, specifically when they're at a disadvantage in the game situation.

And we did discuss this earlier in the game and my ruling will stay the same, for the same reasons.

But I will also add, this was triggered by the creature, but is an ability of the weapon itself.

Okay, so this either happened while I was away, or I had a brain fart and forgot. Both are equally likely, to be honest. I’ll try to remember for future reference!

I'm so happy, I actually hit something! My character in the WotR game I'm also playing has had the worst luck in the current combat. Five rounds and I rolled 5 or below for every attack roll.

EDIT: Just posted in the other game. Rolled a 2. What did my poor cleric do to piss Desna off this much?

I hope you do hit, but I'm going to roll for mirror image.
And she's going to stab at you with her spear as you approach.

Rerolls? Not unless you took the feats or abilities for them.

Tactics-wise, Alain and Quinn have the best chances to damage the enemy so perhaps they should focus on that? Sherman's offensive magic is limited due to the SR and apparent immunity to mind-affecting effects, so he'll be more of a support (and maybe help pop the images). He could also try to help with the statue, but with STR bonus -2 it's a bit lame effort.

Smite evil gives CHA to AC. It's deflection bonus, so doesn't stack with PfE. But with CHA 16=+3 AC should be 20, right?

Just double check, that earlier attack was after your first round of using Smite Evil, and also hit on AC 19. So that should negate that attack as well.

I'm seeing 30 damage done. Which keeps you alive for now.

Good GM, how would a pit spell interact with our enemy's perch? Asking for a friend.


Farmageddon

It would function normally. If you put it directly beneath her, she would either need to fall in or move. Realistically, her just moving so flanking can happen may be the best bet. Keep in mind, the pit can't overhang the roof. The whole thing needs to be on the rooftop. And pits are not dismissable
