We could total up the entire cost of everyone's defrex herding gear and divide it up eavenly amongst everyone. So if Guess? is successful at getting a free mount, we can evenly distribute the savings / costs amongst all 6 party members. I'm totally okay with that. We can actually even deduct it from the coffer loot slide payout amount so no need to actually deduct the credits we have on hand in our character sheets.

Sound good? Seems to me like this encounter is a group thing so the total cost can just be divided evenly across the entire group.

Sorry, y'all! Big family birthday weekend took all my time.

AND, this is a wild week at work. So I won't be posting for the next three days. But I'll move us forward again on Friday!

I poked the google sheet, something in paizos formating prevents it from copy pasting correctly, but i linkified it and it looks like it works now

But yes, i think +12 is our highest stealth, slightly sneakier by a ysoki's whisker than melissas +11

Y'know, considering we were looking like we were in pretty good shape to deliver this cargo, I was wondering how the adventure path was going to not let us get away with earning all those build points. Now that the shoe has dropped, I see we'll be spending all our earnings on repairing the ship!

When I first read through the AP, I thought the defrex herding wasn't as challenging as it should have been. Then I got to this part. :)

Yah, when I read GM Ewok's post, my literally dropped and the thoughts "holy s%+%, stampede on our airborne ship?!?" flashed through my head.

And then I was thinking this incident totally contributes to that Firefly feeling where they just couldn't catch a break each episode. But they stick together and JUST manage to scrape by, not really able to better their overall situation much.

But hey, the fun came from their journey, not so much the destination! And this AP is certainly a journey!!

I want to see more of cowboy Jaraduk! And I'm feeling bad for Del right about now....

Yeah, I suppose thats why the ship heads back into space to zoom around the planet instead of going through the atmosphere. At least when your systems go down you're slowly floating downwards rather than plummeting. This is definitely the most Firefly of the AP books. It has some very loose storylines traveling through the second book but is mostly to reinforce the space trucker Firefly feel.

I want an alternate universe where Jaraduk retires to be a Vesk Defrex Rancher.

For anyone who is interested, I'm planning on starting a Devastation Ark PbP in the next week or two. I have 2-3 players lined up already and would like to get up to 4-5 total. This is a 13-20 AP and it continues the story beats established in Dead Suns (though playing Dead Suns is definitely not needed to jump into it).

If you're interested or have any questions, give me a PM!

Oh and I'm good with Melissa's plan to stick with the same groups to handle the current ship disaster!!

When reading this encounter, I didn't realize just how much unavoidable damage there is! Melissa could have easily been knocked unconscious when you entered the hold, which would have made these last skill checks real tough. The author definitely wanted you to feel the pressure of being trapped in a dying ship!!

Reminder on the compensation system for this job:
-1 BP for every 10 defrex
-5 BP bonus for 60+ defrex
-3 BP bonus for 90+ defrex

Much like the player the characters seem to attract random environmental hazards.

Less DR and cold resistance on the characters though.

@Del, best of luck! Hope things calm down soon. We'll keep Del moving for you.

EDIT:

I'm only 70% sure I didn't break a rule with that Strider's action. (Which didn't really matter, since it rolled a 1.) It has a special ability to attack and maintain the Grapple as a move action. (Intended to allow it to strike at something else with it's spear, I think). A reposition maneuver is an attack that is also Standard action. So... I think(?) action economy allows me to make two attacks in the same round without a Full Attack, thanks to the creature special rule. But that just feels... wrong. I tried to balance my discomfort by giving it a -4 to both attacks.

I haven't payed attention, but for its archaic spear, have you been deducting 5 damage to account for our modern armor?

Except against Guess?, since he doesn't wear armor.

I would have but... they haven't hit with their spears yet. Just those nasty tendrils. They have nasty tactics:

1. Grapple with tendril
2. Kill with spear + tendril
3. Rinse & Repeat until afraid
4. Flee with grappled fresh meat

Since I'm out of the combat, I went and looked at their stat block and WOW. They definitely get to make two attacks without the full attack penalty once they're grappling someone. Plus gorge if it goes move:feeding tendril + standard:bite ! That's spicy.

So I did read that stat block right.. Those are some nasty brutes! Their gorge came into play once. Though by the time it did, either their victim or they were close to death.

The Reposition maneuver is always less effective than I expect. Though this time it did work pretty well by shifting this creature's prey further away from those who could help her. This combat is JUICY.

Reposition definitely doesn't go as far as I'd like either, but it does have one neat feature: since it moves a foe, that foe provokes AoOs from leaving a threatened square. So you can move a creature and then get a free attack off on them. There was an FAQ that clarified that forced movement always provoked AoOs unless stated otherwise in the ability.

Looking behind the GM screen for a moment... This stridermander has 40 HP. So it will go down if someone deals 5 more damage, and Adani will be available to be healed without it threatening the square beside her.

Everyone but Guess? and Karm is in Round 8 now, and Adani will die at the end of Round 8. AND, I already rolled Guess?'s Round 8 attack. Since Karm doesn't have any Healing Serums on him, basically only those in Bold right now have the opportunity to save Adani.

Start to think about what purchases you'd like to make, you'll be heading to town soon.

I was just thinking about this!

Question: if I add augmentations to my legs/feet/arms/hands, I don't want to risk losing them if a hungry enough critter starts an all-you-can-eat Strek buffet.

Say I wanted to get a Speed Suspension, Minimal. Could I pay an extra 10% for Adaptive Biochains to have the Augmentation regrow with my limb?

That's not listed as a benefit, but then, I feel most equipment rules aren't written with Brakim in mind.

How much have we made/spent since we uh. borrowed the ship? I don't see anything on the slide except the build points since then

@Strek, I'll give you two options there.
1. If you pay the extra 10%, then the augmentation regrows with your limb in that same amount of time.
2. If you don't pay the extra 10%, the augment isn't lost when the limb is eaten. Rather, you would need to search through the corpse of the animal to fetch the augment and have a surgeon stick it back in you for a minor fee (but the same number of hours). That's what anyone else would need to do if their arm was eaten by a creature.

So the extra credits give you your augment back right away, whereas not spending them means you could be without your augment until you returned to a major city.

@BNW, I think the 1800 credits on Slide 4 are for this book. So that's how much every individual has made since you got the ship.
