Pathfinder 2nd Edition adventure path Age of Ashes



Multiple GameMaster God 20+

Welcome to the Age of Ashes Adventure Path Discussion forum.

Notes on Character Creation:

Recommend Alignments: Any non-evil alignment works best, however don't feel restricted by that, as long as your not the type to raze every village you come across.

Ancestry: The core ancestries will have a better chance in having a significant role as one of the major races within the adventure path. You can choose others, but goblins, elves, halflings, dwarves, gnomes and humans will have more personal gain to be made for their people.

Class: Any class

Languages: Common is definitely spoken by most people in the adventure path, but those that speak Dwarven, Elven, Gnomish, Goblin, Halfling, and Draconic will cover most of the interactions, but other languages will also get some time in the spotlight that might be useful.

Religion: Worship of draconic deities might be an issue - PM me if your thinking about this.

Backgrounds: Any Campaign background found in the players guide for the adventure path are permitted. For sake of ease, the ones that the adventure path will give opportunities for from the core rulebook are Acolyte, Artisan, Bounty Hunter, Detective, Emissary, Entertainer, Galdiator, Guard, Hunter, Laborer, Martial Disciple, Merchant, Nomad, Scholar, Scout, Tinker, or Warrior.

If you have any further questions then feel free to drop them here during character creation days :)

The messages have been sent out, and it's all good to go :)

Welcome to you all, Redsevic, Cathirix, Hothfar, Aeral and Nosteo. (Using character names so you guys get to know who has been chosen along with you beforehand).

I'll be posting the list publicly tomorrow/later (depending on where you are in the world) probably sometime between 5 and 6 PM GMT on the recruitment forum.

I already have the first post up for you guys to respond - and like the cliche that it is, we'll be starting in a tavern. So, I look forward to seeing you all post your intros and getting to know each other, and while that is happening, there will be some OOC discussion here, starting with how often people are willing to post.

Now, I am going to personally be checking on a daily basis, but I know not everybody is that available and life can get in the way of such things. So I usually have a suggestion of no more than 5 days between posts. I will be posting a minimum of every 3 days, even if waiting on others, just to remind people we are waiting on them (for example during times in initative), but if everybody can do at least a post daily, I would be OK with that as well.

Also, if there are any sensitive topics that might be a problem for you, then feel free to put it here, as I feel it would be good for the group to know. If you feel uncomfortable doing that, then feel free to send me a PM about it instead, but I highly recommend that everybody is aware of such things.

OK, I think that's it from me on the Out of Character stuff, I look forward to seeing your posts and now it's time to tell your stories!

Hello everyone! Dotting this thread for now before I go to bed, will try to get a gameplay post off in the morning. :)

Greetings everyone. Looking forward to playing this AP together with you all.

Regarding my posting, usually once per day when home from work with a bagger post. Small posts during the day could be possible, but I don'te have that much time.

I am fine with most things being talked about as long as it doesn't get too expletive or detailed.

Hi guys. I also look forward to playing with you guys. I see you still can't change avatar pics.

I can almost always post at least once a day. If I'm going on vacation or something I can let y'all know.

Hey GM is it ok if I make a small change before we begin? I was considering taking champion dedication at level 2 and flip flopped before submitting. I think I would prefer to do so, it's too neat an idea I think. Can I swap the armor proficiency feat? I'd probably take the Natural Skill ancestry feat instead of general training.

And thanks for choosing me!


Multiple GameMaster God 20+

At this stage, I'm fine with that as we're still in basically the introductory period, so if you want to make any changes right now that's fine. :)

I look forward to seeing where things go. :)

If the map is giving you trouble I can make another suggestion. Most folks on here use google slides, which also has the benefit of having us move ourselves instead of you having to do it. Of course you'd have to recreate the map on there so I don't blame ya if you don't wanna do that.


Multiple GameMaster God 20+

I could also PM a roll20 campaign link and do it that way, just for the maps. That's another option... but I'll get everyone's opinion on the matter first :)


LG male Versatile Human Sorcerer 1| HP 0/14 | AC 14| F +3 R +4 W +5 | Perc +3 | Stealth +1 | speed 25 | focus 1/1 | spells 1 1/3 | Active Conditions: Unconscious

For me that would depend on if you have a paid account. I do all my pbp on my phone so it would slow me way down because I'd have to wait til I got home to check the map if you don't. Not that I'm asking you to start paying if you aren't already


Multiple GameMaster God 20+

I have a plus account on roll20.


LG male Versatile Human Sorcerer 1| HP 0/14 | AC 14| F +3 R +4 W +5 | Perc +3 | Stealth +1 | speed 25 | focus 1/1 | spells 1 1/3 | Active Conditions: Unconscious

In that case anything is fine with me.


LG male Versatile Human Sorcerer 1| HP 0/14 | AC 14| F +3 R +4 W +5 | Perc +3 | Stealth +1 | speed 25 | focus 1/1 | spells 1 1/3 | Active Conditions: Unconscious

We are to here in the initiative yes?

Aeral of Korvosa
Redsevic Yardin
Cathirix


Multiple GameMaster God 20+

Yep


HP: 23, AC20, Fort:+8, Ref+6, Will +5 Dwarf Fighter/1

Sorry for the absence, at home we were trying to organise something for a birthday for my cousin who is sick at home. Not sure yet if it a common flu or not, so we'd had to improvise.


LG male Versatile Human Sorcerer 1| HP 0/14 | AC 14| F +3 R +4 W +5 | Perc +3 | Stealth +1 | speed 25 | focus 1/1 | spells 1 1/3 | Active Conditions: Unconscious

I have an idea but I don't know if it will work outside encounter mode. If I wanted to use Deception to create a distraction and then attack the dude would we need to roll initiative first?


Multiple GameMaster God 20+

That'll require an initiative roll, but I'd allow you to use Deception for the roll. Also, do remember that the council want him alive, for questioning.


LG male Versatile Human Sorcerer 1| HP 0/14 | AC 14| F +3 R +4 W +5 | Perc +3 | Stealth +1 | speed 25 | focus 1/1 | spells 1 1/3 | Active Conditions: Unconscious

It's time to roll initiative methinks.


Multiple GameMaster God 20+

Yep :) And just a reminder: You have been asked to bring him back to Breachill alive for questioning.

Hey Everyone, Sorry I haven't been around the last week and a half or so - my computer's charger decided to catch fire so I had to order a new one which has turned up now so things should be back to normal - New post is incoming now.


HP: 23, AC20, Fort:+8, Ref+6, Will +5 Dwarf Fighter/1

Sorry guys, I have to bow out, IRL responsibilities limit me incredibly in participating. I would have loved to play Hothfarr to his potential and play on the arc I had in mind for him, but as of a few weeks ago, roleplaying has taken a back seat to taking care of my family.

I wish you all the best and have fun completing this story.


N Human (half-elf) Bard 1, Truthseeker | HP 16 | F +3, R +5, W +6 | Ini + 2 | Spd25 | Perc +6 | Focus 1/1

Best of luck and take care!

It is kind of amusing to visualize half the party just popping out of existence one by one...


Multiple GameMaster God 20+

heh, with only two I can open up recruitment but its difficult to do in the middle of a fight, so what do the two who are still around want to do. We can:

Continue on with two, at least until the end of this combat.

Open up applications for new players to join (this would most likely still incorporate the first one).

Open up applications for new players to join, but start it as a new game.


LG male Versatile Human Sorcerer 1| HP 0/14 | AC 14| F +3 R +4 W +5 | Perc +3 | Stealth +1 | speed 25 | focus 1/1 | spells 1 1/3 | Active Conditions: Unconscious

I'm personally also fine with bringing in new folks and pretending they've been here the whole time. I wouldn't want to start over but I'm not crazy opposed to it. I think two of us can probably take on this one dude though if necessary.


N Human (half-elf) Bard 1, Truthseeker | HP 16 | F +3, R +5, W +6 | Ini + 2 | Spd25 | Perc +6 | Focus 1/1

Same here.


Multiple GameMaster God 20+

Well we'll see if that's the case and I'll get recruitment open for the them to join in after.


LG male Versatile Human Sorcerer 1| HP 0/14 | AC 14| F +3 R +4 W +5 | Perc +3 | Stealth +1 | speed 25 | focus 1/1 | spells 1 1/3 | Active Conditions: Unconscious

You know, you might want to send a pm to some of the folks who applied originally.

Also, maybe I was wrong about being fine 2 on 1. Cuz that crit just did me in.


Multiple GameMaster God 20+

:P - I did send some out, just whether they've been received. And in this game - crits are brutal... :P
