:-D

So I’m bringing Xioa Jr.

So team, I need to inform you all about mechanical stuff related to Xiao that affects all of you!

MISFORTUNE revelation - REROLLING ANY d20 ROLL BEFORE KNOWING THE RESULT

Misfortune (Ex): At 1st level, as an immediate action, you can force a creature within 30 feet to reroll any one d20 roll that it has just made before the results of the roll are revealed. The creature must take the result of the reroll, even if it’s worse than the original roll. Once a creature has suffered from your misfortune, it cannot be the target of this revelation again for 1 day.

The trickiest thing for everyone to keep track of in a PbP format is his Misfortune revelation. Basically, he can require anyone (including allies) to reroll a d20 once/day.
Caveats: it uses his immediate action (so it's not available when he's still flatfooted) and it has a 30' range limitation.

This means that
a) I can use it on you once/day per person;
b) but I can only use it once/round (since it uses my immediate);
c) so as an ally try to stay within 30' of Xiao if possible.

To my fellow players: In a PbP format, I think the best way to handle this is for you each to decide for yourselves if you want to use the ability and just be sure that someone else hasn't already used my immediate previously that round. what do you think?

To the GM: With regard to foes, I'm fine with the GM reflecting the misfortune hex against a foe, using the following priorities:
- Enemy attack rolls: If a foe threatens a crit against an player that has only 20 hp left then Xiao will immediate action misfortune the initial attack roll.
- Enemy saving throws: When they have to make a save and have rolled 13 or better on the d20 roll then Xiao will immediate action misfortune the save roll.

Does that work GM?

SAVING FINALE - REROLLING SAVING THROW after knowing that you FAILED

To fellow players: Saving Finale is a spell I can only use when I have a performance active but if you have already used Misfortune on yourself and fail a saving throw then this could help.

Caveats:
a) you must be within 30';
b) this also uses my immediate action, so it might not be available if I've already used it for Misfortune;
c) this depends on me having Bardic Performance up, which I will normally do.
d) In the case of Saving Finale, you can actually wait to see whether or not you failed (as opposed to Misfortune, where you only see the die roll, not the result), so this is a very handy bailout.

I hope this was understandable! :-)

Thanks to GM Abraham from whom I copied major portions of the text above as he is also using Misfortune with one of his characters.


Very surprised Gulthwur didn’t loose his mind at being asked to wait tables and tend bar.

Selective listening!

He was too busy wondering who "Angela" is (he's never been good with names) to hear that part of the briefing. I suspect, however, a blowing of his mind is coming.


@ Sothkoro of Valashmai If I was a super stingy GM I'd say that upgrades have to be made in between scenarios as upgrading a weapon takes days. Luckily I am not a super stingy GM and also you haven't really done anything except make a few culture checks so go ahead and upgrade your trident to +1.


What is the decision? Continue to explore the lodge or move on. Moving on will NOT negatively impact your gold.

Angela is okay with either course. It'd be more efficient to heaad back to the party which appeals to her, but there might be slaves down there the croup could free sooner rather than later...

I think this is a little of a player vs. character thing. As a player I would totally not mind to leave now but it would be super strange for Xiao to leave as he would rather go in and check if there still are slaves or other incriminating evidence that the goblin lady does not know about.

@GM:

HI GM, I somehow did not factor my headband of alluring charisma +2 into my skills so some increase by 1 in my char sheet. I hope that is fine.


@Xiao: No problem, I make those kind of mistakes all the time.

@Everyone else: Anyone else wanna weigh in? Otherwise we are just kinda here spinning our wheels.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat. As a player, ijust want to skip it. Not sure it makes total sense in character.


You guys are given two separate rooms in the Inn upstairs (each room has four beds). Let me know if you are doing a watch and if so, who is on the watch when. I'll post the next bit as soon as you figure that out.


Slide 3 shows Yigrig


Saps are 1 gp but are martial weapons.


Pretty busy for the next few days, got a new schedule at work, so I may not be able to post until Thursday. Apologies in advance.


Angela, how are you aiding another 2x a round? As far as I know doing an aid another on an attack roll is an attack roll itself. Do you have some special ability that turns it into a move action?

She has Effortless Aid which is the back bone of her build. She could also be attacking instead but is not going to be any level of accurate and non-lethal.

I am such an idiot as I am advertising the +2 to hit and damage and not applying it myself. :-/


Reinforcements incoming. I’ll post after I get home. And cash my paycheck. And pay my bills. And eat dinner. Ugh, I hate adulting.

Egads! You are right. Golthwurn't using inspire.


Wondering how Golthwur is attacking the half-orc through a wall with his quarter staff when he doesn’t have line of sight or effect to him.

Would you believe.... magic?

Positioning on map now corrected (I think).


I adjusted Gulthwur to the minimum of where he'd have to be to see the half orc through the doorway.


Hey guys, I'm GMing in the upcomming Paizocon and so expect a significant slowdown in posting for a few days. I'll try to post something tomorrow to take you back to the top of the round, but then I might be out until Monday.

@Angela: I think your trick gives you a +4 to CMD vs any attempt to get you out of the way, sound good?

Whoops I forgot to respond to this earlier! Yep a +4 works just fine. Angela could be pushed around by a stiff breeze, anything that makes her harder to get past would be highly appreciated.


Sorry guys, paizocon wiped me out and as soon as it was done it was back to work. I'll work on updating in the next day or so now that I've finally gotten a good night's rest.


Huh, I don't think I have everyone's PFS numbers for their characters. Can you please put down your character level and number (and if you are slow tracking or not) on the first slide of the 10-6 google slides?
