What do you mean by "Classism", just to be sure?

We probably each have a slightly different definition, but I'm guessing its prejudice against people who are of a different social class.

I have also changed the links for the combat maps as my Roll20 subscription is about to run out. That means we'll be using Google Slides from now on and doing all the dice rolling in the IC thread. Sorry for the change.

I've also changed the picture thread, and am in the process of updating it. I've made both slides editable by anyone with the link, so please put yourself in the position you wish to hide in for the ambush. Sorry the map is so small.

I'm fine with Against the Giants Redux.

Can we see the 1st-floor map to decide where to be positioned?

Against the Giants Redux is fine with me.

I'm still a bit turned around on the map so I'll wait until some other people have placed themselves to follow their lead.

Where on the map did we find the kid again? If he's getting fed, they'll probably be going there. Can we back into the building to a similar chokepoint on the route they'd probably take?


Discord Chat

You found the kid in the northwestern-most room in the basement. If you want to hide in the basement, the central room (with the picture of the sword on the floor) would be a good ambush point, as (whoever is coming) have to travel from the staircase (in the southeastern corner), and the "sword room" is on the shortest route betweeen the two rooms. In that larger room you would also be able to bring more of you into the combat. You also think it would be a good idea to have a stealthy character at the top of stairs as a lookout so that the rest of the group doesn't have sit in complete silence for the entire time you are waiting (especially the dinosaur who doesn't understand "be quiet" very well, at least not for long). I know you didn't ask for help from the GM for planning, but I love this kind of stuff :)

All that sounds good to me! Let's do it there!


Discord Chat

I'm waiting to hear from at least one more player before I move everyone down to the "sword chamber" and continue.


Discord Chat

Also, I want to remind everyone again that I will leaving town this coming Thursday (7/28) and won't be back until August 16th. My computer access will be VERY sporadic as I will be camping most of that time, and although I may post from time to time, don't expect much until I return home in mid-August.

I don't really want to be taking on the tactician role in this game (although I will offer some suggestions now and again), but if it will help move things along then I will give a +1 to this plan.

I had originally identified the sword chamber as a potential ambush spot due to its size - I preferred the upper floor due to less chances for the enemy to notice our disturbances. But if there is no good spot above, then here it is.

Yeah, forgetting the haunt really threw a monkey wrench in that plan. Sword chamber it is.


Discord Chat

Do you want to send a scout up to watch out for anyone coming into the ruin? If so, who, and where do you want them to wait?

I also forgot to remind you that the "sword room" has a ladder in it that leads to a trap door in the floor of the "haunted infirmary", so there are actually two ways to get into the basement. You found it open when you arrived here, but the trap door is capable of being barred, although it is in disrepair. Judging from the evidence of the foot traffic in the Plague House, whoever imprisoned Othdan entered the "sword room" in this way. You guess that they either have a way of bypassing the haunt, or stay out of the parts of the room where it is triggered (there was a clear path from the double doors in the northern wall of the "haunted infirmary" to the trap door, which I have marked with an "F" on the map).


Discord Chat

Sorry for any confusion about this, but this place has a somewhat complicated layout and I just want to make sure that everyone is "on the same page".

Getting there :)

So it seems near the ladder in the basement is one good entryway to scope out for ambush.

Re: scouting: is that essentially just hanging out by a window?

The ladder seems the only way people have been coming and going here. Scouting could be hanging out a window or just near the door to the next room until someone else is spotted. The scout then quickly retreats down the ladder and warns that the ambush is abou to begin.

Preemptive welcome back GM how was your trip?


Discord Chat

Aaaand I'm back. Sorry for the slight delay, but I thought it was a good idea to eat spoiled food upon my return, thereby gifting myself to mild food poisoning. All better now, thankfully!

@GM I don't see it being an issue but can I change towering brothers level 1 feat from improved unarmed strike to weapon focus gore? I had originally planned for his build to use dragon style and feral combat training but looking at how spread out Animal companion feats are it would take forever to come online for only a small benefit of x2 str for first attack each round.

I instead am now planning to be a bit more traditional with him currently aiming for something like weapon focus> power attack> improved overrun> ect.

Does somebody want to be in charge of tracking the loot?

I see there is a loot tracker that GM R0B0GEISHA set up. Things not included on there:

From the dead half-orc in the rubble: suit of sturdy chainmail, Wand of CLW (8 charges, Sky Voice has it), a fine silver dagger, a red gold holy symbol depicting a bloody double axe, and six gems of polished black onyx.

From Daktani: four different magical potions (CLW, 2x Pass Without Trace, Vanish), smoke pellets (2), tangleburn bag, leather armor, 5 daggers (some well-concealed on his body), a masterwork morningstar and short sword at his hip, a magical belt, a few pieces of alchemically treated coal, a crowbar, thieves' tools, a key, a garnet (worth 50 gp), and 30 gp in a coin purse.

I would rather not do the tracking but I will if nobody else wants to.

The GM would very much appreciate it if he didn't have to do it :)

Woops! Looks like the Loot List was still owned by the old GM. I made a copy of it and opened it up for editing by anyone: LINK

EDIT: I also updated the link at the top of the page.

Apologies for my absence. It's been a busy RL week.
