I...somehow got in when my entry wasn't complete?

Several reasons for your getting in. I know that you’re a consistent and reliable poster. I also know that your posting quality is quite good, which is generally what I look for in PC backgrounds

I will have a finished finalized charector for you to go over in a few hours, Glad to be here, looking forward to good times!

Adding in, I was under the understanding that you were looking more for solid concepts than completely finished builds >.<

Brindle scans the horizon, seeing figures gathering. She redoubles her efforts and lopes closer.

Well, it is an honor! Mighty kind of y'all to take little 'ol me along. May we find gold on our road together!

If y'all want me to tone down the westernisms, I'd be happy to oblige so long as it's 'fore we get rollin' proper.

Okay, I'll get to work on completing things for you.

Hello all! And thanks for picking me up for this one, Coyote.

Will check over Casey and make sure he's ready to roll. He should be but I like to be sure.

CC UPDATE: I am now 3rd level proper! Will purchase gear tomorrow!


Am traveling at the moment away from the computer; Ralrae will be up on Monday. Thank you for bringing him on board! Looking forward to this group of Western “heroes”!


Fragments of the First Battle Maps | Old and Broken Battle Maps | Twilight of the Heroic Age Battle Maps |

Good to see everyone’s made their way to the thread! Once Ralrae’s alias is ready, I’ll put up the first post.

I’m quite excited to get started, this looks to be a great group!

Sprig, if you could put your full stats and equipment in your alias, that’d be awesome.

Whoops! I honestly slapped it together real quick. It's updated now. I added a Spell Component pouch as well since I forgot it. (-5g)


Male Human Level 2 scavenger rogue / Level 1 Fighter HP 26/26 F+5/R+8/W+1 Perception+6

I have no idea how to spend that much money *lawls*

Should be good to go

I should have more money than listed I just cant picture Bas having a whole lot of wealth at the moment like even that amount seems too much. Perhaps he is saving up for something. I can do a full calculation of wealth left if you really want me too Boss.

I spent a good chunk of my money on a wagon, workers and cargo. I'm runnin' a small caravan! How about we make it a joint venture? Heck, I very well could be the 'ol wanderer in your backstory iffn you want.


Male Human Level 2 scavenger rogue / Level 1 Fighter HP 26/26 F+5/R+8/W+1 Perception+6

*edited from the old screen before I updated*

Even then Sprig I can't picture him having a lot of wealth, I think Maybe Ralrae (river of stick's charector) was going to be that Benefactor, but I would imagine Bas would have perhaps offered to be a guard for your traveling caravan a time or two so we could have crossed paths.

CC UPDATE: I've purchased Saraon's gear, bringing my gold down to 545 GP. I'm not sure if there's anything in particular I should add to it. If any of yeh have any suggestions, please let me know.


Small LG Kobold Wizard 3 | HP 17/17 | AC 15 | F: +2, R: +5, W: +3| BAB: +1, CMB: -2, CMD: 11, | Init: +3 | Perc: -1 | Speed 35ft |

Heck, consider the Caravan Deal to be a standin' offer to anyone who's in'erested. I ain't lookin' to lord nothin' over no one, we'd be workin' as equals. It's th' least I can do for th' the downcast n' trodden. Most folk's weren't too keen when they first clapped eyes on me, but at least I can give people a chance. It's what most people want, I think, gainful employment and a proper job.

In fact Saraon, ah might be workin' on a lill' project I think you'd be a real aid in.
Planning to take Cultivate Magical Plants eventually, I could always hire an NPC, but if you're interested we could work together to bring life to the wasteland.


Male Half-Elf NG Halcyon Druid 3 | AC 16, T 12, FF 14 | 27/27 hp | Fort +5, Ref +3, Will +5;| Init +2 | Percep +10 | CMD 14

Sounds intriguing! ;)

I'll have to check the ABP rules again to make sure I have what I should. Brindle has a gunstock club, boomerang and wooden armor as weapons/armor but little else in the way of miscellaneous equipment...

@GM Coyote - I didn't get an answer to this in the recruitment - do I use ABP as 3rd level even though I only have 2 class levels?


Fragments of the First Battle Maps | Old and Broken Battle Maps | Twilight of the Heroic Age Battle Maps |

You’d keep ABP of third level. You’ve got the same power level as a third level character, and it’ll keep things logistically consistent.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Yeah I don't really see Casey as a Caravan guy. Sorry.

@Saraon: Maybe extra potions of Cure light? Shield of faith? Protection from evil? Just throwing those out there. They're all cheap so a few extra may come in handy if that's any interest. Definitely not flashy or fun type buys though.

Hello, good folk. We are brought together in these troublesome times it seems.

Ralrae is getting together; I need to finalize some things and clean up the profile, which I will do tomorrow. Thank you all for waiting on me.


Female Gnoll Savage 2; HP 24/24; || AC 20 || T 13 || FF 18; Fort +6; Ref +5; Will +1; Init +2; Per +7; SM +7; Stealth +7; CMB +5; CMD 18; Spd 35 ft. Darkvision 60’, Current AC 20/13/18

@Thanks GM.

Can someone assist: so as part of ABP at 3rd level I have Resistance - +1 to all saves. Then we have 3000 to spend on equipment - can we spend this on weapons/armor or is that what ABP seeks to do, and I should wait until 4th level, choosing miscellaneous items instead?


Fragments of the First Battle Maps | Old and Broken Battle Maps | Twilight of the Heroic Age Battle Maps |

You spend the money of weapons/armor, just not enchantments for them.

I've already accidentally made a bunch of jokes in my first post. I'm sorry.


Small LG Kobold Wizard 3 | HP 17/17 | AC 15 | F: +2, R: +5, W: +3| BAB: +1, CMB: -2, CMD: 11, | Init: +3 | Perc: -1 | Speed 35ft |

Do we want to wait for Ralrae? Seems like we're about to head out otherwise.

Happy to wait. I thought we were missing someone...

Sorry folks - I didn't realize the Gameplay tab was active and our septic system backed up Tuesday, so I haven't been online in a bit. Will get something up quickish.


Male Half-Elf NG Halcyon Druid 3 | AC 16, T 12, FF 14 | 27/27 hp | Fort +5, Ref +3, Will +5;| Init +2 | Percep +10 | CMD 14

Not pulling any narrative punches starting out, are you Coyote?


Fragments of the First Battle Maps | Old and Broken Battle Maps | Twilight of the Heroic Age Battle Maps |

Heh. It is the apocalypse after all.

Well, I was waiting to see how you all might respond when Brindle dressed a kill that was already...dressed... in... clothes...and boots...

What? Gnolls eat people. Natural response to availability of meat for scavengers.


Legendary Gunslinger 3 | HP: 14 | AC: 19 | FF: 16 | TAC: 14 | F: +4, R: +4, W: +2 | Tiefling Init: +3 | Per: +9 | DV 60' | Grit: 3/3 | Speed 30'

Was there anything in the chest, or have we not gotten to it yet?


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Yeah I don't think we've opened it yet. Will get that taken care of now.


Small LG Kobold Wizard 3 | HP 17/17 | AC 15 | F: +2, R: +5, W: +3| BAB: +1, CMB: -2, CMD: 11, | Init: +3 | Perc: -1 | Speed 35ft |

Hey GM Coyote, we're coming up on a what seems to be a firefight. I was wondering, can I use Expeditious Excavation to open a 20ft long, three foot deep and two feet across trench?

The spell says a five foot cube, which has a total area of 125 feet and the trench only has 120. However maybe the operating area is limited to that five foot cube? I dunno, it's your call.

I was thinking a small trench could give most of our ranged fighters cover or at least partial cover. Shorties like me and Ralrae might even get total cover.


Female Gnoll Savage 2; HP 24/24; || AC 20 || T 13 || FF 18; Fort +6; Ref +5; Will +1; Init +2; Per +7; SM +7; Stealth +7; CMB +5; CMD 18; Spd 35 ft. Darkvision 60’, Current AC 20/13/18

Wait, I think I missed that Ralrae is Small. Is he half/tief-ling or just a Small tiefling?

@Sprig: Sprig’s Dependable Instant Trench. Great idea.


Legendary Gunslinger 3 | HP: 14 | AC: 19 | FF: 16 | TAC: 14 | F: +4, R: +4, W: +2 | Tiefling Init: +3 | Per: +9 | DV 60' | Grit: 3/3 | Speed 30'

A less than average height tiefling, thank ye much! (small tiefling variant, yes)


Fragments of the First Battle Maps | Old and Broken Battle Maps | Twilight of the Heroic Age Battle Maps |

I’m going to rule against the trench, unfortunately. That is a creative use of the spell, but at least the way I read it, it’s limited to a cube. If you want to do some looking around on the forums for a clarification, go ahead. I like the idea, but in my eyes the rules don’t support it.


Small LG Kobold Wizard 3 | HP 17/17 | AC 15 | F: +2, R: +5, W: +3| BAB: +1, CMB: -2, CMD: 11, | Init: +3 | Perc: -1 | Speed 35ft |

That's alright, I wanted to make sure I had your approval before attempting it. There's still plenty of other options I could do.


Small LG Kobold Wizard 3 | HP 17/17 | AC 15 | F: +2, R: +5, W: +3| BAB: +1, CMB: -2, CMD: 11, | Init: +3 | Perc: -1 | Speed 35ft |

Sprig has enough food stored to feed everyone if they didn't bring their own, just let me know if you want some.

GM Coyote, do you mind if I retroactively buy a coffeepot and cups? I figure we'd start the day right.

Lastly, how did we divvy up the loot so far? We got four Gems and about 300GP in coins.


Legendary Gunslinger 3 | HP: 14 | AC: 19 | FF: 16 | TAC: 14 | F: +4, R: +4, W: +2 | Tiefling Init: +3 | Per: +9 | DV 60' | Grit: 3/3 | Speed 30'

@GM, I apparently miscounted and only selected 9 first level spells while I have 10 known. Can I make feather fall my 10th?


Small LG Kobold Wizard 3 | HP 17/17 | AC 15 | F: +2, R: +5, W: +3| BAB: +1, CMB: -2, CMD: 11, | Init: +3 | Perc: -1 | Speed 35ft |

It's alright, I'm just poking at Ralrae and Casey to see if they want to do or say anything. Not trying to rush the forward team.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Heh, I’m loving Casey’s frank assessment of the likelihood of success (and his companion toothpick), Sprig’s southern mercantile bluster, Ralrae’s firm beliefs, Bas’ tortured past and shy deference (dark backstories’r’us) and Saraon’s love for all things living. GM Coyote’s setting is great and the character’s perfect. Bertha’s meatwagon. Fantastic. I’m just hoping Brindle lives long enough to learn how to speak clearly.


Fragments of the First Battle Maps | Old and Broken Battle Maps | Twilight of the Heroic Age Battle Maps |

I am in total agreement! Thank you for the kind words, feedback like that both helps a lot and feels great. I’m really enjoying the group dynamic so far, and I’m looking forward to see where this game goes


Small LG Kobold Wizard 3 | HP 17/17 | AC 15 | F: +2, R: +5, W: +3| BAB: +1, CMB: -2, CMD: 11, | Init: +3 | Perc: -1 | Speed 35ft |

Honestly, I've been having a blast. No need to sell yourself short, Brindle. Personally, I'm pretty excited to see things play out and GM Coyote's been really putting in the work!

So...are we going to rush in when they open the door?


Male Human Level 2 scavenger rogue / Level 1 Fighter HP 26/26 F+5/R+8/W+1 Perception+6

Thats my plan now

Pretty much...


Male Half-Elf NG Halcyon Druid 3 | AC 16, T 12, FF 14 | 27/27 hp | Fort +5, Ref +3, Will +5;| Init +2 | Percep +10 | CMD 14

To battle then! :D

How far are the ranged folks from the stockade? Did we ever see that? Trying to figure out range increments.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Hey! That's a good question. I was actually wondering that myself.
