I sort of assumed finishing school/graduation time would add some extra chaos to life :)

Ironically, no.

I'm about to go on a trip for a week. My intention is to keep up with posting from my phone, but please don't hesitate to bot me if I'm struggling.

FYI: I am going away this weekend on a camping trip and will be away from computers. I will likely have signal but limited ability to post on my phone and with little time to do so. I will check all of my games before I leave and since it's just the weekend I hope for minimal disruption.

I will return early evening on Sunday (US/pacific) time and catching up and resume posting.

I make no promises that I’ll be able to post today; got a bad case of insomnia last night and my brain is completely scrambled.

Sorry to hear. Sleep debt is no laughing matter. Take care and rest up!

FYI, Kolgradd, you can prepare two cantrips from your wizard archetype, not just one.

Noted thank you! This trip is proving more intensive than I anticipated, sorry about that. I'll be back on Sunday and will be able to catch up.

Whoops, should've posted something about it yesterday. My bad.

Hero Points reset in 6 days.

Moving out of the college dorms; next couple days will be pretty busy for me.

I don't know how well this is going to work, but I am aiming for a fruitful de-escalation. We can figure out what matters in this room, and hopefully be a safe distance away when the illusion fades.

So, I do have to ask: are people deciding to just walk away from the addled guards? Y'all didn't see an angel statue in there (which is what you're looking for), so you could just take the effort to move away from them.

Jevar is attempting to search to find things exactly like that. Is it possible, and then could he use stealth/thievery to pilfer it and then sneak out again?


| Strange Aeons | Hell's Rebels | ◆◇↻

There is nothing of the sort in there. Pulling the screen back: this is a 100% optional encounter; you get no fun reward for defeating these guys or anything like that.

Okay, then this was the perfect spot to use that illusory wall and now we can skedaddle :)

Next round, Jevar will traverse the wall again, round the corner and drop invisibility to quietly report finding nothing to his teammates. But, we are still in rounds, so.

Kolgradd will be on board as soon as that plan is reported to him. Illusionary shenanigans, huzzah!

If it helps, I posted Jevar's next-round actions. GM can determine whether to fast-forward to them or not based on others' actions.

I also meant to do this before: Hero Point to Jevar for helping me out with the botting.

Ty! Mental note to use 3 hp within a couple of weeks :D

Okay, I’m going to ramble for a bit because I feel a bit of communication is in order.

Yeah, I’m gonna have to replace Shohreh as soon as this combat is over. I’ve been communicating with their player behind the scenes for a while to try to get an understanding of the nuance of the situation. While they haven’t been communicating with the rest of y’all as much as I would have liked, they have been communicating with me.

I’m not at liberty to disclose everything that’s been going on in their life, but I will say that it’s been a bombardment of really nasty, uncontrollable stuff that made THEIR life extremely difficult. They have not been acting in bad faith whatsoever, so I’ve been accommodating them because I know it’s just a series of bad situations.

Then…they vanished. I haven’t been able to communicate with them at all this past week and…that’s where I have to draw the line. I don’t like having to be the *sshole, but I feel I have no other choice anymore.

And to add on to all of this, I have not been going through great times either. I just graduated college, am still unemployed, have developed sudden onset insomnia, have been having medication issues, need to get a new therapist, need to jump through red tape for a new government caseworker. And to top it all off, I just got news that my gaming group of the past 7 years just lost a player.

So I’m currently in a major inflection point in my life, and it feels like my life is falling apart around me. I still want to play; Pathfinder is a major source of joy in my life and cutting it out would certainly do more harm than good. I’m explaining this because I want to be open about what’s going on and where I’m coming from.

Human error: Performer’s Heart means Boodiddly’s success is a crit success, so he’s not stupefied at all.

Alright, I now have to officially declare Shohreh as being off of the table.

So the game is gonna have to go on a very brief break as I need to go about finding a replacement. Luckily, I have some people on my other PbP table that I’ve been playing with for years that I’m sure at least one of them wouldn’t mind jumping over.

The primary difficulty, though, is that a) the new PC actually can’t be one of the amnesiacs Lowls betrayed, since the narrative has already establish who exactly those people were. Similarly, the rest of y’all (the amnesiacs) have both a bonus class feat as well as an apex item, which makes the narrative-construction for this new PC having those things (so they’re not inherently punished for not being around since Book 3) is going to be…interesting.

Anyways, I’m having to declare a pause on this game for a bit. I doubt it would last more than maybe 3 days.

I mean, we’re already amnesiacs. Who’s to say we didn’t forget something else - like a whole person - as well? XD
