Not bad. I'll try and get a post up at work today, ran out of time this morning.

Why are we looking for the pugwampis at night?

As such, I kind of thought we'd just wait until morning since nothing that was said made it sound like this was a particularly urgent task.

Two reasons!

1. We're in a desert, aren't we? If we wait, we run the risk of a slight breeze disappearing the tracks entirely.

2. If we're tracking something that's trying to move away from us, then we don't want to let it get too far to follow.

I wondered the same thing. A sensible person would wait for morning, particularly if you are going to be tracking for goodness sake! But the module seems to suggest that the PCs are to be goaded into going out that very night.

Lupe is not going to wait to help people and deserts don't keep tracks, mud and snow are normally much better. Lupe has torches even though he does not need them.

Clearly, your character and mine made different assumptions about the situation. :-P

Well, I did forget to include the following:

3. It'll make Dashki shut up sooner.

I would argue the fastest way to shut Dashki up is to go to sleep. Then you just can't hear him complaining. Though I suppose this is only a temporary fix.

Alternatively, Katsumi also has earplugs.

I mean, if we're specifically looking for speed, I think Vulpina has a way to shut him up. Real loud for a second, then real quiet after.

...Wait, you guys would tell me if we're just taking him far enough away from camp that they can't hear us gun him down, right?

Right???

D'oh! I knew we forgot something: Sexual Harassment Merc. Is it too late to go back and swap Dashki for him?

Grand Lodge

In the mountains this weekend so my posting maybe a little slow.


Let me know when you are ready to follow the trail by making your rolls. Otherwise we are lingering in RP land, which is not a bad thing mind you, but it does mean that I will not be advancing the plot.


@Rahella
Remind me - Where are the temp HP coming from?


female human arcanist 1 | HP 6/6; THP 0/4; N/L 0/10 | AC 12, TAC 12, FF 10 | F +0, R +2, W +2 | CMB -1, CMD 11 | Init +2 | Per +0 | Reservoir (3/7); Spells: 1-st (3/3)

Twilight Barrier, when I activated it I got 4 temp hp. It will also backlash when the last point is removed dealing 4 damage to whatever removed it.


I don't remember you saying you activated that. Found it!


I don't understand what 'hot/entering forest' means to decide my action. Can you explain a bit more?


Sebecloki wrote:

should say 'not entering forest'. i.e. you are waiting outside with Dashki.


I mistakenly thought these things would speak Aklo. They do not. They spoke gnoll where I previously said Aklo.


M Human (Tian-Min) Fighter 1 (HP 11/13 | AC 19, T 14, FF 15 | F 4 R 4 W 0 | Init +4 | Percept 1)

If it matters, that means I understand them since Katsumi speaks gnoll.


You would have understood some banter, but nothing mission critical.

to answer the question in gameplay, one of the creatures will be unavoidably gone unless you down it when it flees. The other will be captured by Lupe.

Player is fighting “exhaustion from working a lot of overtime” and “depression” so expect responses to slow for a bit! My apologies and please don’t hesitate to bot if necessary.

Something's messed up on my sheet, and I don't see bluff score.

I honestly need to go through and check some stuff to finalize my build (I still have weapon finesse, which I don't need for my strength build, for example) -- I haven't changed to that archetype we discussed either. I'll fix some stuff tomorrow and then get back to you with the bluff check.

"Brother sorry about your sword. My fixing magic won't do much but maybe Father could help his magic is like mine but he is better at it."

Lupe has it right. The priest can fix the sword. The cost? RP. Though since you are in a RP game, maybe 'cost' is the wrong term.


Note: I am listening to your wonderful discussion. Just wanted you to know I am not ignoring you all.

Casper said he worked on the weekends, so I've been assuming we'd wait for him to weigh in probably tomorrow before doing anything. Otherwise yes, Katsumi will be moving in to check out the monastery in order to keep things rolling along.


I'll check in tomorrow/later today, I work 48-50 hours between fr-sunday.

No worries I was just leaving it there assuming you would get to it today or tomorrow.

I've just been busy with Animal Crossing whoops :'D


I'm back home and I'll post sometime this evening -- I'm usually pretty busy on the weekend because of my work schedule, but you may also have noticed we're in the midst of a pandemic, which is making my job more draining and stressful than usual.


CN Kitsune Picaroon 1 | Panache 3/3 | AC 14, T 13, FF 11 | 11/11 hp | Fort +1, Ref +5, Will +1;| Init +3 | Percep +1 | Low-Light Vision | CMD 14

Pandemic's affect on the boards is interesting. Some people have all the time in the world now because their workplaces are closed, others don't have any time at all!

And here I am... mostly unaffected.

No worries. I'm not in a rush it was just a natural time for Casper to act so I thought I would throw it to him. Keep yourself safe.


Me either. I enjoy the banter and it gives me time to reread the encounters.

I have never played such a pollyannish charater. It's odd trying to play 6 int and 16 wis and highish diplomacy but the others in the group give me some good personalities to bounce off of.


I'm trying to not reflect my own thinking, and roleplay his stats, but there's also a difference between animal cunning and real genius. I don't see him as an academician, but as someone with a lot of vicious street smarts.

It's all very surreal. For me, I'm just kind of mentally exhausted because we get updates about the situation literally every day at 5.00am, and have constantly changing work protocols. I work in a lab, and we just got an email today about a new 9 step algorithm for processing the covid samples I'm just having a headache imagining trying to do correctly.

I work in a cancer lab we just sent all our RNA processing reagents the centres for testing.

I do software support for a product that various security forces use. On the one hand, we're getting a lot less cases from casinos. On the other, anything that hospitals send in is suddenly much higher-priority to get fixed ASAP.


I'm just a lab assistant -- I do accessioning, processing, and safety stuff (i.e., train employees and file SRS's) for a core lab in a big health system (I'm also taking pre-reqs to do a nursing degree in the next year or so, or whenever the crisis allows it, and that was another big upset over the last week when all my classes had to readjust their schedules to online over the extended spring break).

I'm not even sure right now how this is going to work next weekend, where I'm basically going to be on my own doing all the ordering for these tests. We just got sent this complicated algorithm for determining which micro and referral tests get reordered, received, or canceled to make the swabs test ready for the microbiology lab.


M Human (Tian-Min) Fighter 1 (HP 11/13 | AC 19, T 14, FF 15 | F 4 R 4 W 0 | Init +4 | Percept 1)

I'm very fortunate in that the main change to my life is that I'm now working from home. It's not ideal (cats are very distracting co-workers), but it could be a lot worse.


Oddly, the pandemic has barely touched my life. I'm a software engineer working for a massive health care org. I already was set up to work 3/5 days from home so the social distancing regs were a very small step for me. And, of course, my job is secure under the circumstances.

I really, really, feel for all the poor folks who's employment were terminated and who's businesses are being destroyed. And for the young people that aren't content like me to cuddle with my wife 12/7 (I gotta work and game, just gotta. 12/24 hours is pretty good, huh?).

Lupe was a feral child. The stuff he has are a combination of fearing having to live in the woods again and things he found while living there. The bear trap is something he has be dragging around for years at this point and has cause him a lot of small and medium game. But, there is hunter out there down one bear trap.

This little dummy is going to buy a lot of dumb stuff without guidance.


That's cool. I love a character with flaws.


I've seen a lot of discussion and suggestions but the only one to actually do anything was Lupe, who is digging a random hole in a random location with the intent to bury his trap.


So, the damage these gremlins do is 1d3-4 with their bow. Won't that always end up being 1 point of non-lethal?


AC:20 T:13 F:16| HP 11/11 | CMD:14 | F:+4 R:+2 W:+5 | Init:+2 | Perc: +6/8, | AC:16 T:12 F:14| HP 14/14 | CMD:14 | F:+5 R:+5 W:+1 | Init:+2 | Perc: +6/8, |

Yep

Except on a confirmed crit. You get three non-lethal then!


CN Kitsune Picaroon 1 | Panache 3/3 | AC 14, T 13, FF 11 | 11/11 hp | Fort +1, Ref +5, Will +1;| Init +3 | Percep +1 | Low-Light Vision | CMD 14

Or if you manage to knock someone out and then keep shooting them! All nonlethal damage is converted to lethal damage at that point.


Gameplay has been very slow recently. I figure it is due to people dealing with the virus. If any of you are feeling like it is too much right now let me know and I can get a replacement. If this is just a temporary thing, that's OK too. But I would appreciate a little check-in post from you if you want to continue and have not posted recently. Heck, even if you have posted recently just let me know whether you are growing bored.

Still around, got sucked into Final Fantasy VII Remake pt 1 the last several days and I just finished it. I think I had close to fifty hours in it and I didn't do everything there was to do. Game was freaking awesome, can't wait for pt 2!

Somewhat unfortunately, it's my experience that trying to be smart with dungeon crawls slows things down immensely. It's why I'm ok with taking the suboptimal/slightly reckless approach of "just pick a room and enter it" even if it means you have the not-stealthy, perception of +1 guy leading the way as the alternative is typically to wait around and watch as the one character most suited to the situation does everything. But I also didn't want to mess with other players' fun when people balked at Katsumi trying to just enter the place and look around.

I've been strugglin' a little bit in everything right now. Hoping to get back up to speed soon!
