@Group - I'm of the opinion that the PCs with the highest Diplomacy should be the Primary (bard) on the Diplomacy checks. Do others not agree?

Agreed. You can presume Ferdrin's is aid if I ever forget to mark it so.

I just noticed we are light on beefcake for combat. We may have to figure out who is going to run blocker besides Hildan for all the other squishies.

FYI, whips don't get AoO's without Improved Whip Mastery.

@Hildan

If you survive this next round, you might consider fighting Defensively. If you have 3 ranks in Acro, you'll get +3 to AC and with the grappled getting -2 to attacks, that's like +5 to AC.

Hey folks. This is an FYI that I'm going to be away on a camping trip this weekend Nov2-3 (US/Pacific time), and unable to post until I return on the evening of the 3rd. Please bot as necessary.

Thanks for the heads-up. Have a nice trip!

There's something about this chase that seems off.

If we were required to make three DCs of 75% success each round, statistically, we're going to lose ground. There's only a 42% chance we'd get three rolls if we all had a 75% chance. This is even more true when when failure means we lose ground...and our chance of success isn't 75% for each. If our chance of success for each attempt was 50%, we'd only have a 12% chance of gaining ground in any round. There would be a 75% chance we'd lose ground.

Actually that math is a little off because I'm only considering that we get three attempts, but it probably averages out the same given some of these, are way below 50% chance of success.

I'm also curious if there is any adjustment for the amount of players?

The other thing which could help but not probably considered in the chase mechanics. Ecthelien can dimensionally slide 30’ at a time, so could easily bypass some obstacles. I was not sure if he can use those arcane pool items on a few of these but will try if allowed.

Slide gm:
. Dimensional Slide (30 feet) (Su) Use 1 reservoir as part of move/withdraw, move to spot in sight for only 5 ft movement & no AoO.


You don't lose from not catching up with Tsomo-- even with 6 active players the odds would be pretty small. (Especially as, depending on how prior events work out, he can start up to 4 spaces ahead.) In fact, it looks like we have enough rolls to determine the final result, so back to the gameplay thread...

Ecthelien, I need to know how many charges you used for my records, please. No rush though.

Great job GM. Had fun. Good job team.

A couple of questions:

1. Is this adventure take place on the Material Plane?

2. Is this considered an ancient site?


Las:

1. No, just the Plane of Water.
2. It does not.

Everyone: Almost forgot, you all get to make boon rolls!

boon: 1d20 ⇒ 14

Also, I was not sure if Ferdrin wanted to attempt to swap any spells with Ecthelien. I rarely play book casters, so I do not usually do this, and am fine either way.

Yeah, I'd be up for that. I'll take a look at yours in a while. Ferdrin has spent most of his earnings on filling his spellbook.

LOL - You probably have everything in his book already then :)

In case it matters: 1d4 ⇒ 4


Looks like Ferdrin gets a boon, which will be...

1d3 ⇒ 3

"Debt to Society".

Ferdrin, could you please DM me your e-mail address so that the organizers can send you the boon?

@GM - Why did we only get 1 Prestige point? Did we fail our secondary objective?
