Welcome all! Let's have some fun!


Male Human Barbarian 2/Ranger 1|AC 19, Touch 12, FF 17|HP 31/31| F +7, R +4, W +1| Init +2| Perc +6|Rage Rounds: 7/7|Elemental Blood: 3/3

Thanks for the selection! Look forward to gaming with you all. I changed the character's name. I believe he is complete for your review.


23/23 HP | AC 18/16/14 | F+3,R+5, W+3 | Perc +10/+11 (vTraps), Init. +5, DisDev+12 | CMD 14 | Female Halfling Unchained Rogue 3 | Evasion & Twist Away | 1 HeroPoint

Thanks for the invite, GM! Very excited to play this. Great to see Red here....I’ve played with Lucendar many times in the past!

Very interesting cast of characters selected. I like it! I plan on maxxing out Shel’s UMD so hopefully she can help cover some of the arcane role with our bard.

Shel has a bunch of skills, can help support the front line a little, and can help with most of the face skills too.

Finally I’m very open to changing up a couple things if needed to help the group. Just let me know.


F Elf (High Elf) Bard (Archaeologist) 2/Swashbuckler (Inspired Blade) 1| AC 16, T13, FF13, Uncanny Dodge| HP 20/23,1 DEX dmg, F+0, R+8, W+3/+5, CMB +3, CMD 16| Init +3, Lowlight, Perc. +9, Speed 30ft | Hero Pts: 2 | 0/7 Rds Archaeologist's Luck, Panache Pts: 3

Thanks for the selection, GM. :) I look forward to gaming with you all.

Rîleth also has many skills (including all knowledge skills untrained) and can assist with Diplomacy.

She has both a rapier and bow and some healing magic in her arcane magic repertoire (to ease the burden falling wholly on our warpriest). As she levels, she'll gain Disable Device and trap sense and can assist Shel in these.

Hey Gerald, great to see you again! Hope we can reach 20th level together again on these boards! :)

Rothgarr is the muscle and brawn, not very bright. He is sword and board warrior and not your typical 2-hander combatant. He has Survival and Intimidate to offer the party.

Perri's just a farmhand who wants everyone to get along. <grin>

As an Erastilian, I intend for him to be really archery focused for combat.

Warpriests don't get many skill points, so he doesn't have much breadth. Diplomacy, Sense Motive, Heal, and Spellcraft are what I had planned for him to bring along. If you want me to swap one of those out, we can talk about it.

Both Rileth and Shel have better Diplomacy bonuses than Perri does, BTW. +4, +5, +6. Awful talky group we have here.

Long-term, I want Perri to tank up in the heaviest armor we can find, using his bow on the front line. Somewhere near the end of book 2 he'll not provoke when using the bow. Awful far away, that.


Looks like good team - lowest AC is 16. Going to be hard for goblins to hit ya..oops! <evil grin> I'm sure that was not a spoiler. Anyway, do you all or any of you know each other or do you wish to start as strangers? Let me know your preference.

Based on the backgrounds, Perri should at least be aware of Rileth, though they may not have interacted at all.

Shel looks likely to be an unknown.

Red has no background I can see, so I think we can make that up to cover a connection if we need to. A monster hunter wandering this area of Varisia is likely to have contacts in towns scattered throughout, after all.

Edit: Aware? Sure! You think the gossip mill isn't churning about the attractive young elf who showed up out of nowhere and is spending all that time with old Brodert?

I figure I’m a stranger to town. Not sure about the rest of the group, but I’m here to catch the festival before heading back to the city. I might have made the acquaintance of anyone who might be helping with the festival or working in town or something. Thanks


F Elf (High Elf) Bard (Archaeologist) 2/Swashbuckler (Inspired Blade) 1| AC 16, T13, FF13, Uncanny Dodge| HP 20/23,1 DEX dmg, F+0, R+8, W+3/+5, CMB +3, CMD 16| Init +3, Lowlight, Perc. +9, Speed 30ft | Hero Pts: 2 | 0/7 Rds Archaeologist's Luck, Panache Pts: 3

I'm good with Rîleth and Perri having a passing acquaintance in town. Sandpoint is a small sleepy town, so I'm sure their paths have crossed at one of the taverns/inns or the cathedral, for eg, and they've had a chance to make small talk at the very least. :)


Male Human Barbarian 2/Ranger 1|AC 19, Touch 12, FF 17|HP 31/31| F +7, R +4, W +1| Init +2| Perc +6|Rage Rounds: 7/7|Elemental Blood: 3/3

Missed that, Perri. Added my background from the Recruitment thread. As a friend of the Sheriff, Red is most likely in town helping with security, while he continues with his search for a giant.


M Human (Varisian) | HP:18/21 | AC16, T11, FF15 CMD15 | F+3, R+2, W+6 | Speed 20' | Init: +1 | Perc+3, SM+9 Erastalian Warpriest 3

Yeah, given Red's background, I'm VERY confident Perri knows who this shaggy outsider whose helped out a time or two is.

Perri, on the other hand, may have just faded into the background from Red's perspective as just part of the militia. Or not.


23/23 HP | AC 18/16/14 | F+3,R+5, W+3 | Perc +10/+11 (vTraps), Init. +5, DisDev+12 | CMD 14 | Female Halfling Unchained Rogue 3 | Evasion & Twist Away | 1 HeroPoint

Alright, everyone has checked in.

Anything you need from us, GM?

I doubt we will need a marching order for quite some time, but in a dungeon, I’d suggest Shel go first. Also to save time there, I think establishing a standard operating procedure at a door would be as follows...

Perception to listen at door
Perception to notice traps,
If trap, DD to try and open it,
If no trap, open door.
If locked, DD to pick lock.

That way we don’t have to repeat it every time, if everyone is okay with that.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Shel, I like that format. Please add your DD modifier to your line of stats so that is quickly accessible to me.

Also, I apologize for the delay. I linked the wrong game thread for this campaign and I cannot unlink it. I have contacted customer service for them to unlink it so I can link the correct thread but no response yet. As soon as the correct thread is linked, I can submit the initial post and get this moving. If anyone has any suggestions to expedite this process, please let me know.


M Human (Varisian) | HP:18/21 | AC16, T11, FF15 CMD15 | F+3, R+2, W+6 | Speed 20' | Init: +1 | Perc+3, SM+9 Erastalian Warpriest 3

Low stress. I doubt any of us are going to be able to wheedle Paizo Customer Support into having lots of people on staff this week or next, let alone to get them to pay attention to this concern instead of ones involving money and Christmas gifts.


23/23 HP | AC 18/16/14 | F+3,R+5, W+3 | Perc +10/+11 (vTraps), Init. +5, DisDev+12 | CMD 14 | Female Halfling Unchained Rogue 3 | Evasion & Twist Away | 1 HeroPoint

No rush, GM. I just wanted to be sure everything was okay on our end.

Yeah, I suspect Paizo will be a ghost town until next week at least. Perri is 100% right.


Male Human Barbarian 2/Ranger 1|AC 19, Touch 12, FF 17|HP 31/31| F +7, R +4, W +1| Init +2| Perc +6|Rage Rounds: 7/7|Elemental Blood: 3/3

We understand GM, will wait patiently.


I think I found a way around it without waiting to hear from Paizo. Will be back.


Gameplay thread is up - check tab above! Feel free to post. Shel, please add your Disable Device modifier to your Race/Class Tab. Thanks!


Waiting for Perri and Rileth to post in Campaign thread - tab accessible above.


F Elf (High Elf) Bard (Archaeologist) 2/Swashbuckler (Inspired Blade) 1| AC 16, T13, FF13, Uncanny Dodge| HP 20/23,1 DEX dmg, F+0, R+8, W+3/+5, CMB +3, CMD 16| Init +3, Lowlight, Perc. +9, Speed 30ft | Hero Pts: 2 | 0/7 Rds Archaeologist's Luck, Panache Pts: 3

Perri and I dotted the other/yesterday's gameplay thread and there was no discussion thread open this morning, so no posts were showing. I only checked under the GM's alias to find this one. Sorry for the wait. I PM'd Perri with a link to this game thread in case he has the same issue.

I'll be posting shortly. Posted!

I'm in the Southern Hempsihere, so I think I may be on a different time zone to other players. I also have an appointment for some tests at the hospital this morning (my time), so I will reply to any follow-up posts later in my day. Thanks!


M Human (Varisian) | HP:18/21 | AC16, T11, FF15 CMD15 | F+3, R+2, W+6 | Speed 20' | Init: +1 | Perc+3, SM+9 Erastalian Warpriest 3

Game link that was showing up in my Campaigns tab lost both Discussion and Gameplay tabs. I was wondering what had happened.

Rileth messaged me. JUST saw it. Skated out of work early today (Christmas has perks), so I'm posting hours earlier than normal.

My apologies for the delay.

With Christmas tomorrow and Boxing Day the following day, I won’t be on the boards as I’ll be with my family and extended family. I’ll be back on the boards in the morning of the 27th (26th in the northern hemisphere).

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Stay safe and enjoy the festive season. :)

Well, this fat old man has 2 appointments to get caught tonight.

I hope you manage to have even more happiness and joy than the children I'll be teasing.

I hope everyone had a nice holiday. I will update thread tonight.

It was good, thanks! Hope yours was good, too. Looking forward to the update, GM. :)

The map works fine for me. :)

Same here.

Shel, I moved your token 20ft forward on the map.

GM, the goblin (blue) nearest Shel and Rileth has only taken 3 pts of damage. Was that enough to kill it? If not, I think we have one more goblin left to fight/kill presently?

Happy new year to everyone!

GN, I’m waiting on an answer to Rileth’s question above before making an in game post.


Oops! I forgot about the blue goblin, but we can retcon that Red moved in to flank the goblin, who then tried to flee, and was cut down by the group. So, you can rp meeting or seeing other if you wish. No more combat. Thanks for catching that.


F Elf (High Elf) Bard (Archaeologist) 2/Swashbuckler (Inspired Blade) 1| AC 16, T13, FF13, Uncanny Dodge| HP 20/23,1 DEX dmg, F+0, R+8, W+3/+5, CMB +3, CMD 16| Init +3, Lowlight, Perc. +9, Speed 30ft | Hero Pts: 2 | 0/7 Rds Archaeologist's Luck, Panache Pts: 3

Thanks for the answer, GM. I’m going into hospital for a surgical procedure and won’t be released until tomorrow night. If all goes well (fingers crossed), I’ll be able to post on my Tuesday/your Monday.


Thanks, be well.


23/23 HP | AC 18/16/14 | F+3,R+5, W+3 | Perc +10/+11 (vTraps), Init. +5, DisDev+12 | CMD 14 | Female Halfling Unchained Rogue 3 | Evasion & Twist Away | 1 HeroPoint

Hope everything is okay, Rileth!

When they ask you to count backwards from 100, count forwards in a foreign language instead. They'll be entertained, and the point still works.

Thank you, GM, Shel & Perri. I’m out of hospital and recovering at home. Still loopy from the anaesthesia and in a little pain. I’ll post as Rileth in my morning once the anaesthesia has worn off and I’m more coherent.

Perri, I hadn’t even started counting and I was out. Whatever cocktail of drugs the anaesthetist gave me were mighty strong. Otherwise I can speak a few other languages and it would have been amusing to count in one of those. ;) Maybe next time.

Took some pain meds and I’m going to try to sleep. Good night.

I was out of town for the holiday weekend. Glad you're ok, Rileth!

I hope your holiday trip went well, Rothgarr, and thank you. Still sore and somewhat foggy-brained, however I'm functioning a little better today. :)

Thank you, all, for your patience.


Hey all, I've been reading some tutorials on Roll20 for map and tokens and it appears easier to me than Google slides. It's free to set up an account, which I already did. Let me know if you would be amenable to using that system for the maps and tokens - all rolls would still be made here on the boards. I created the next encounter map very easily there and naming the goblins and all was so much easier.


M Human (Varisian) | HP:18/21 | AC16, T11, FF15 CMD15 | F+3, R+2, W+6 | Speed 20' | Init: +1 | Perc+3, SM+9 Erastalian Warpriest 3

Works for me. Not sure how long it has been since I've logged in there for a game's maps, but I've used it as a player before.

Tracks your movements so the GM can review them. Has a fog of war feature that obscures things not in the character's line of sight. I found that more annoying than useful, since it blacked out the path you had already traveled, meaning you couldn't see where your character was two or three minutes ago character time, but possibly weeks ago (online combat!) real time.


23/23 HP | AC 18/16/14 | F+3,R+5, W+3 | Perc +10/+11 (vTraps), Init. +5, DisDev+12 | CMD 14 | Female Halfling Unchained Rogue 3 | Evasion & Twist Away | 1 HeroPoint

Roll20 isn’t great for my iPad or iPhone, but neither is google. I’ll just be calling out my movements in my posts in either place, so roll20 is fine with me.


Male Human Barbarian 2/Ranger 1|AC 19, Touch 12, FF 17|HP 31/31| F +7, R +4, W +1| Init +2| Perc +6|Rage Rounds: 7/7|Elemental Blood: 3/3

Roll20 works for me - used it before and it works for maps.

I have a Roll20 acct, so it's fine for me, too.


Okay, great, thanks. The link for the game map is:

Odd. Shoot me a PM with your email address and I will send you an invite. Same with anyone else having issues.

Shadow_Fox, I've joined the game map, however I am unable to move my character token. Can you please adjust the settings for this?

Thanks! :)
