Still have some levelling up to do.

I’m working on leveling myself. Got my big work deadline on Friday so will still be a bit busy, but I’m working on getting a normal schedule again

Okay leveled! I’ll get a post up later tonight


F Cavern Elf Bard (maestro)/9 Hero Points: 3

Oh jeez, I thought I posted. I relaxed a bit too hard last weekend, which is on me. I’ll get caught up tonight

Your new acts are added on Slides 8 and 9! Don't miss that you each just got an additional 600 gp, too. We'll say that you take about ten days to travel to Kerrick all told, which you can use as downtime for whatever you would like. (Much of that will be on a ship, which would likely limit Earn Income options, but, you know, pitch me something if you want.)

Make sure to fill out Slide 2 with you 9th level values when you get a chance!

There is a map of the Swardlands on Slide 3. I also have a gazetteer about the Swardlands to share if you give me your email addresses through whatever means you would like. You'll start in Kerrick for sure since that's where the port is, but you can set your own plan for going through this region.

I'd like Kennari to spend that time working on his staff, upgrading it from a staff of evocation to a greater staff of evocation, if that's alright.

I'm going to hold off, see what Treasure Vault brings, assuming you don't mind...


Ghost Level Delve || Extinction Curse

No problem! Feel free to make purchases whenever you would like.


F HP 146, AC 27 or 28, F+18/19, R +20/21, W +16/17, Hero Pts 3 Halfling circusfolk doomsayer 10

So, after reading the gazetteer, as a tentative plan, I propose:
Do some shows at Kerrick (and maybe gather info), then head up the road to Matten Cleave. We can leave the circus there (unless we want to go to Ferny) while we go to the Wellspring Tower.

After that we head with the circus to Castinlee, leaving it there to perform while we all head to the Liferoot Stone.

Turpin Rowe may be a little more dangerous but I think still worth bringing the circus there. We can leave it there while we head to the Old Forest Tower.

That sounds like an excellent plan and route!

I'll be out of town Sunday through Friday. Back Saturday, though not quite sure how long it will take me to catch up with my games.

I am going to be out of pocket for at least 3-4 days, possibly more. My mom went to into hospital last night. Her prognosis is poor.

Sorry to hear that Lysle. :( Take the time you need.


Ghost Level Delve || Extinction Curse

Oh gosh, I'm so sorry.

If the current storyline is at all difficult right now, we can totally skip ahead to another bit and return to Vandy's place later.


F Cavern Elf Bard (maestro)/9 Hero Points: 3

Work is just being crazy. I’m yearning for that long weekend right now lol. I’ll post up sometime today

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16, RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. Hoping for the best.

Thank you all for your kindness and understanding. My mother did pass away last week. Things have been a little crazy, but I appreciate this chance for some "healthy escapism".

As for the Vandy storyline, it doesn't bother me.

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16, RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

My condolences. May her memory be a blessing.

I'll be out of this town this weekend. Back to posting Monday afternoon/evening or Tuesday morning.


Ghost Level Delve || Extinction Curse

I have messaged each of you, but just to say it here too, I am officially pausing the game for a bit!


Ghost Level Delve || Extinction Curse

Hey folks, thank you for being patient with the pause! The kiddo is starting to sleep a little more reliably, so I think I can start up PBP again soon!

I will target next Monday (May 1st) to get things moving again.


F HP 146, AC 27 or 28, F+18/19, R +20/21, W +16/17, Hero Pts 3 Halfling circusfolk doomsayer 10

Yay, on both counts! Looking forward to getting started again.

As a reminder, we have a doppelganger we have to deal with, people!

Yay!

Not sure if anyone wants to put on a show. I don't know if I'm going to have a time to go back to check out our various acts (we have new ones after dispatching our rival circus) for probably at least a week.

I'd say let's just do the same act we did before? Rova definitely thinks the folks here deserve to know Groetus is coming.

Kennari is happy to add magical effects to the existing act wherever anyone would like. I don't think he's likely to have a new act to add unless really pressed.


F Cavern Elf Bard (maestro)/9 Hero Points: 3

I have an audit at work on Friday but I can work on a show idea


Ghost Level Delve || Extinction Curse

That's fine! We can also hand wave the show if people aren't interested in describing it. I just didn't want to leave out the circus bits entirely if people enjoy them.

Unset considers himself more behind the scenes, but it may be fun to see what he might do if "pushed" into the spotlight.

Alright, I’ve got the start of an idea finally. I’ll have to cross-reference some things and write it up, so it will be sometime tomorrow!


F Cavern Elf Bard (maestro)/9 Hero Points: 3

Alrighty! All feedback, in-or-out of character, is welcome!


Ghost Level Delve || Extinction Curse

Very cool!

Could I get a check from everyone to represent their pre-show work (since this sounds like it will need a lot of set-up), plus three checks for your performance during the actual circus?

If you are working behind the scenes, that is fine and you can still make checks appropriate to that.

Also, Niksi would get a hero point, but Niksi is already at max hero points!

Working on my post! I have a busy day but if I can’t finish it today, I have a block of time tomorrow that’s perfect to finish it.

My father-in-law has been the hospital for tests this week. He has now been diagnosed with leukemia and began chemo today. My family is scheduled to leave on a week's vacation tomorrow, although that is a bit up in the air. Either way, my posting may be limited for at least the next week.

Feel free to bot Unset as necessary. He will Point Out, if he thinks another PC could benefit. Otherwise, he will first try to keep the shoonies and, second, try to set up a flank with an ally, then flurry on the creatures.

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16, RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

My sympathies. I'll keep him in my thoughts. (And obviously real life comes first.)


Ghost Level Delve || Extinction Curse

Oh, I'm so sorry. Please, don't worry at all about posting.

Thank you for your support. It is very much appreciated.

Unfortunately, my father-in-law passed away last week the day after we left for vacation. Although he had been in the hospital for the week prior for tests, we understood his condition to be "stable" before we had left.

He was a remarkable man and is deeply missed. His passing is hitting my family quite hard, especially having happened so soon after the loss of my mother just a few months ago.

I'm really sorry to hear that, Lysle. I hope you and your family can find peace in his memory.

I am so sorry. I can't imagine how hard this is for you and your family right now.

I’m so sorry. I hope you are all holding up okay.

Whooops, forgot to post that I'm out of town for a few days. Most likely won't update again before Tuesday/Wednesday. Sorry about that!


Ghost Level Delve || Extinction Curse

No worries, it's been a super busy week for me at work, so it's been hard to find enough time to get you started at the tower. This weekend should be good, though!


Ghost Level Delve || Extinction Curse

I'm going to add a house rule for incapacitate that it only turns crit fails into fails, but otherwise the saves are what they are. Just to make things like color spray more fun! This will work both ways though, if any of your enemies have such effects.

I am posting this note before I attempt the saves against Prism's spell.


F Cavern Elf Bard (maestro)/9 Hero Points: 3

I like that! Thank you, I will keep that in mind in the future


Ghost Level Delve || Extinction Curse

And if you (or anyone else) wants to change out your spell list based on that rule change, please feel free to do so after this battle!


F HP 146, AC 27 or 28, F+18/19, R +20/21, W +16/17, Hero Pts 3 Halfling circusfolk doomsayer 10

Everyone OK? It's been nine days since anyone but Kate or I have posted.
