I am still finishing Fantomas, but I am ready to go.

Fantomas can use wands (+17 UMD) and has a Lesser Restoration one.

Bjorn looks quite solid to me. I also have UMD (+18). I also have about 1500 left for contribution to buying wand/scrolls for fill in duty...

Yes, I've got some money left as well if we want to purchase something.

Now, if I could only get a proper face...


M 1/2 Elf Unchained Rogue (Underground Chemist, Scout) 12, Vigilante 1

GM Mathpro, could you give us a simple dot-in gamethread so we can actually have the aliases linked to the campaign?


Going to get things off the ground here sometime in the next few hours

Excellent!


And the gameplay thread is live!

Fantomas needs to know:
- If the headmaster's office is empty.
- If he is able to teleport in, and what does he sees there.


So I should have probably asked this before but how do you guys want to do combats? I am considering setting something up on roll20 but i've never used it before. Do you think it would speed things up? Otherwise how I usually do things is have you guys post your actions for the round and then I will write up a round summary. It has worked well in the past but I'm wondering if things might run more smoothly on roll20.

Thoughts?

In Roll20 (or Google Draw) you can have more "specific" combat placement and position oriented combat.
If we only do "theater of the mind" it is looser and fast, and it is easier to get confused.
It is DM choice, specially when you are pressed for time. To do and update the combat maps can take quite some time.


M 1/2 Elf Unchained Rogue (Underground Chemist, Scout) 12, Vigilante 1

I don't mind either.

Fantomas has pretty much summed up the tradeoffs... But to put in in perspective, I'm pretty sure that actions in the game thread have already drawn AoO's for Bjorn and Adonis (" moves between the unconscious girl and the creature" and " jumps to the unconscious woman. He feels her pulse", when it is "standing over the girl" ) , that I'm not sure they would have taken with a map...


Yeah they would have provoked...I think I'll just use google slides for maps and then do round wrap ups.

Honestly, the link doesn't work for me, so I had no idea what was there. Knowing it looks like having reach, yeah, maybe I would have taken a different choice, but anyway. I guess there's no problem in using theatre of the mind as long as descriptions offer enough details to know what you're doing. From my experience, maps function better when players are high level and have many special things to do, but I would adapt to anything.

I like Google Slides most, but have used anything before. I am against Roll20 as that does not work from phone.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

99% sure I'm going to be using google slides for maps.


Wanting to give you a heads up that I'll probably going to have to start the google slides doc at home which means it probably won't be up until Monday.

Do the init - you might not have to if the retriever's less than a 24... It's already eaten 88 dmg, and Eldorazo can potentially drop 3 more sneak attacks on it...

PS. Can Eldorazo see what the thing's reach is?


Anyone know if the advanced template changes your touch ac? It says +4 to ac but...


And yes Eldorazo you can see he would have 15 foot reach as he is a huge creature. Though your pretty sure his eye rays have better range.

Give it to it... You realize that it's short it's dex (unless it has uncanny dodge) because we haven't done init yet.

The template does make it pretty much impossible for me to put the thing down before it gets to go...

Edit: If you are using the rebuild rules for the Advanced template, +2 AC from natural armor (wouldn't affect touch) and +2 to AC from increasing dex by +4 (which would affect NA, except that it's flat footed as this is before init...)

I think is +2 to touch only, with the DEX increase.


Hey guys just wanted to pop by with a bit of an update. I ended up being gifted a day off today so I won't be able to advance the story til tomorrow afternoon. Thank you for your patience.

Fantomas is in the house!


Battle 1 complete! You guys did 264 total points of damage in that first round guys, thats scary.


Made an alias for Byron too. I think it will help to distinguish between their actions.

Björn's familiar Will mostly stay with him and just Scott every now and then, so I'll just play it without an alias if that's ok.

Let's go. I know, GM was busy with selections for two more tables, but now we need to roll


Hey guys just a heads up I have a real life game that I'm DMing today so I won't be on much. We're tackling book 2 of Rise of the Runelords with a wizard, a bard, an oracle, and a bloodrager...this should be interesting.

Good luck! Hope we resume the game soon.


I'll be getting a post up soon. Sorry for the delay.

No problem. I am glad we are back.


M 1/2 Elf Unchained Rogue (Underground Chemist, Scout) 12, Vigilante 1

Ok, we haven't seen Mathpro since Tuesday. Do we have a serious problem here, and if so, what do we do?


Male Elf (Disguised as Human) CN Conjurer 5 / Veiled Illusionist 8 | HP 82/82 | AC22 T14 FF 19 CMD 20 | F+11 R+12 W+14 | Init +9 | Perc +21 Low Light | Speed 30' Fly 40' | Special: Immune to Sleep, +2 vs Enchanting | Status: Veil Pool (Human)

I think we have a "easy-going" game here. no hurries, no time limits. I guess he will post in his own time.

Now I am getting worried. Lots of work anyway...


M 1/2 Elf Unchained Rogue (Underground Chemist, Scout) 12, Vigilante 1

Getting on to 2 weeks (it'll be 2 weeks exactly on the 31st). Not good.

The worst part is that I liked this character a lot...
I hope we resume in the future.

Options,

1) We can suspend, although IMO this is another way of saying dead; even if Mathpro comes back in another couple of weeks, I suspect the players will have moved on. Heck, we will see how many responses we get to this post.
2) We can either go looking for another GM on the boards...
3) Could one of us step up? It's easy enough to find a copy of the module online...

Yeah, that was the first time I tried a Bloodrager and I liked it a lot, specially since the character's background reminded me of an acquaintance...

I totally suck at GMing, though, so in my case that is not an option. But I'm locked at home, so I don't mind waiting.

I do love this one, too. I'll stick around


M 1/2 Elf Unchained Rogue (Underground Chemist, Scout) 12, Vigilante 1

Ok, so that's all the players like the game so far... Well, that's good.

Nobodies desperate enough to volunteer for 3 just yet.
I hear no votes for 2 just yet. Revisit the issue in a week or so assuming we haven't heard from MathPro?

2 is changing GM, right?

I'm okay with that too, even though my experience here with changing GM is not the best. Also, I don't know a lot of people here, so I'm not the most fitting to search for a replacement.
