that reminds me of the book called bunnicula that I read as a kid, where a cat and dog try to deal with the vampire rabbit their owner has brought home; at one point in the book, the cat has managed to get a steak from the fridge and starts chasing the rabbit around with it.

I remember that book! I loved it and thought it was pretty funny at the time. Probably due to my love of puns. :P

"Am I getting anywhere near its heart?"

Funny how I can remember that despite that being over 20 years ago.

Also, I just want to say that was some good heavy stuff right there, Lexi. Wish I could fav it more than once. :)

Kjeta, give me a bit to research that, not familiar enough with Midgard to say off-hand.

Sounds good. Note that I'm equally fine with you researching or making something up. As long as it's internally consistent in your world, that's plenty for me...I just don't want to make incorrect assumptions that fly in the face of how you're building this world.

lol bunnicula reference.

Quote:

Well, I try to stay true to the world designer (Kobold Press) just because it means I have to make stuff up from nothing less of the time. They have a team of dudes going over stuff for consistency to some extent, compared to my lazy ass. Especially with the gods, their influence crops up everywhere and with the concept of Masks even moreso. I don't do homebrew stuff often simply because I'm not good at it, and its not that enjoyable (Id rather be playing/game mastering than writing background type stuff). I prefer having my criteria and constraints laid out, then bouncing around creatively in that box, if you know what I'm saying.

Anyways to answer your question, I think knowing basic details about Marena would be a DC 10 for Zobeckers ("she is known and feared throughout the Crossroads"). After all, the Greater Duchy of Morgau is just the next stop north from Zobeck. As a practicing cleric, you might be more familiar with her priests, the Red Sisterhood...responsible for the dreaded public floggings, quarterings, brandings, beheadings etc.

Ninkash is listed as Marena's enemy in the world book, but not vice versa.

On the second question, Darakhul/ghouls/vampires/liches retain their personalities and so could preserve their morals presumably. Just browsing some NPCs of those types also, they aren't all evil. One thing that complicates it is blood and void magic in Midgard. These schools kind of steal some traditional tropes from necromancy...for example those that have been shadow corrupted cant become undead because "they are filled with a different kind of darkness". Kinda cool.

So yeah, I'd say go with the fuzzy evil interpretation for intelligent undead at least. The eyes of a god might have a different perspective. For zombies and such, its an abomination against nature surely but you'd have to decide if that matters or not to your PC. The brewer manipulates life (yeast) for personal gain, too.

You're fine to take the bangles Raseri. Lexi doesn't really do the whole "make noise moving around" thing.

Infinity, thanks for that!

Raseri, unless I'm missing something, the Bracers will only help you when you're not wearing your chainmail, right?


5e Fey5e AL

Guys, I am realizing I have a hard time keeping track of inspiration, having to look through sig lines and such. So, I'm going to add it to my little tracker sheet so I can just see at a quick glance.

Bonus, that means you all have inspiration as of right now.

Yup, but in a court, we're not likely to be wearing obvious armor like Raseri's mail. I figured if no one else was going to claim them, I'd go ahead and do it since she's probably going to be paranoid after the last time she met with important people wearing a nice dress.

Also, nice to know I still have inspiration. I'll be sure to add it to my status. :)

Kjeta, its your turn in combat in case you missed it.

Thanks! Got a post half-written while in midair. Now back on the ground in the US of A, and submitted it.

Can we say that mithral heavy armor is equivalent to light armor for the sake of sleeping? Hmm? Can we?

;D

Figured that for the first night in a place like this it would make sense to be ready for a fight. But can we split the difference and say that Hrungnir slept in his breastplate but not the rest of his armor? It seems logical to me to be worried on night 1, but would still take some efforts to get a modicum or comfort.

No Armor: AC11
Breastplate: AC15
Plate: AC20

Low dex hurts :p


5e Fey5e AL

Hrungnir, sure that's reasonable. Also there is precedent for dwarves especially never taking armor off (in FR at least), eg Thibbledorf Pwent.

Thanks GM for the potential kill shot. But, Carnadine wouldn’t remove his shield in the face of a potential breath attack. Besides someone can get the kill shot.

Okay, done skimming the game thread and there have been only five fights so far, and about half of our enemies have fled before they could be killed. I have not counted those. So, without further ado, here are the results!

Shadow Fey Kill Count
Lexi: 1
- Wraith: 1

Kjeta: 0

Carnadine: 2
- Fey Hound: 1
- Shadow: 1

Hrungnir: 1
- Shadow Elves: 1

Deimus: 1
- Soul Eater: 1

Raseri: 4
- Horses: 3
- Dragon: 1

So far Raseri has 4 kills, Carnadine has two, Deimus, Lexi, and Hrungnir are tied with 1 apiece, and Kjeta is last with 0 kills to her name. I had thoguht Ras had taken down the Fey hound, but it appears that Carnadine got the last hit in.

I'm also sure the body count is going to go up from here. :P


5e Fey5e AL

I remember a wtf moment from 3.0 when my druid cast Harm on a red dragon and then followed up with a single spear hit to kill (Harm took hp down to 1d4). I thought it was pretty lucky to beat its spell resistance and even get a melee hit, but DM was not amused lol.

I don't think I've ever had any moments like that. I've had a couple where my character was the one that took off most of the HP with just straight weapon damage. I do remember one PFS session where we didn't fight a single encounter and my one spell cast was a prestidigitation on a streaking dwarf (who was another party member) to turn his hair hot pink for a distraction. All of his hair. Needless to say, that was a serious WTF moment for the NPCs. :P

Guy I used to play with loved that negative energy; we always guessed that he had been a fire mage lover who's gm had thrown a bunch of fire resistant or immune creatures at him.

Anyway, he loved playing negative energy focused clerics, and he would often throw Harm plus quickened inflict light at things.

He raged-quit the game after he tried using harm on an undead, despite the rest of us telling him that it would heal the undead. Which it did, and then proceeded to wipe us.

The last wtf moment I played was in Book 1 of Reign of Winter. The PCs are low level. The big boss is a giant weasel that the story builds up and up and up. When we finally encounter it, our barbarian wins initiate walks up to it, crits, and effectively maxs out his damage. One shot and dropped it. The GM through the book in the air.

In an eberron game I play on Sunday nights, the GM's wife likes to turn into an earth elemental and cheese the dungeon. It can be kind of funny to hear the two of them sass each other about it.

Re: Nega-Blaster
It sounds like the guy didn't want to change tactics and got burned when the GM threw something that couldn't be nova'd. Kinda childish of him to just storm off like that when it was his fault and he was warned before he did it. I try to at least adjust or come up with something clever when the GM throws a monkey wrench into my plans. Sometimes I even succeed.

Re: Reign of Winter
I'd be tempted to do the same, but I'd be laughing the whole time.

It's okay though; We didn't realize it at the time, but he was "that" guy. You know the one I'm talking about.


character sheet

Hey Infinity, this is the first time Kjeta has gotten seriously hurt so it's well time for me to bone up on 5e rest-healing.

First though, in this post you say Kjeta is at 58. Then she got blasted for 52, so down to 6 HP left. Add in 14 from ritual + 1 from Goodberry, and I have her at 21...but your sheet says she's at 32. Have I missed something?

...And OK, I just read short rest and now that part seems clear. Once I know what her current HP are (and how wounded others are, and what plan we settle on) I'll prolly use a combination of magic healing and short rest HD to recover.


5e Fey5e AL

Yeah, sorry...I just updated the sheet with inspiration but haven't done hp yet. I'm lazy with it, thanks for tracking yourself also.

As for short rest healing, you have 8 HD you could spend to recover hp beyond any spells/scrolls/whatever...they get your con mod added. These only regen on a long rest.

Give me an hour or two and I will double check and update hp.


5e Fey5e AL

Forgot about this last night, hitting it now.

edit: Yes thanks Kjeta. I had put your hp as if you made the last breath save...my mistake, thanks for being honest. HP at the end of the battle (before any healing) was:

Carnadine 43 /72
Deimus 29 /45
Hrungnir 20 /83
Kjeta 6 /81
Lexi 63 /63
Raseri 35 /56

Magic Morningstar! How can we identify it?


5e Fey5e AL

Identify spell or short rest. During the short rest you study the item and cant do other stuff like spend HD or regain class abilities. Then a second, separate short rest is required if Attunement is listed for the item (Attunement isnt always necesary).

Also you can only be Attuned to three magic items at a time.

Hrungnir will try to identify it with a short rest.
