No, she probably just feels like I was about steal something. Tieflings in Cheliax. I get it, but Apano just felt like being passive aggressive about it.

Got it, I'm just slow. Thank you!


Hi folks. This is a message for all games I am in. My dog was in surgery yesterday, so I am keeping him company and checking on him pretty much all the time. With that said, sorry for the slow post rate. Will improve on that as soon as possible.

Thank you for understanding.

Best of health to the dog.

Wishing you and him a successful surgery and speedy recovery.


Update. Dog is fine for the time being. Had to shorten the tail, because he is cute as a dick, but just as dumb. What started as a minor injury on the tail, through several days of licking and biting, became a serious issue. Infection, inflammation, all of the lovely things one likes when they lack impulse control. As a bonus, he had a birth defect (crooked tail) that did not help with the healing process. So now I have a discount dog. 50% off.

Docked tails are pretty common for dogs, glad to hear that he's probably gonna be fine.

Does Longacre have a hotel? I have not been able to find any mention of one in the media I have access to.

I'm entering a busy period at work that may keep me tied up until February 12 (Super Bowl Sunday). I'll still try to check in and post, but I can't guarantee I'll make a consistent appearance. Please feel free to bot me.

Max is treating the tavern like a hotel, FWIW.


Hey everyone,

honestly sorry to be saying this, but this game isn't doing it for me. I am in this with you since November, and this account made 22 posts including this one.

While you may be okay with this pace, I -unfortunately- am not. Since it is not scratching that particular itch for me, specifically, I opt to bow out.

In either case, thank you for the opportunity, and wish you have fun in further dragging Cheliax into the devils' hands.

Tark, please mark my character inactive in the threat.

Again, have fun, and thank you.

Genuinely sorry to hear that. Good luck in your future games.

So, what do folks want to do here? Re-recruit? Gestalt the party?

No. Please don't gestalt the party. Jerax will have to discover he's secretly the son of Asmodeus as a godling NOOOOOOO!

Re-recruit? :)

Oh, that would be a lot of fun! Alessandra might need to gestalt a full BAB class and make her way into Sanguine Angel.

But I guess we can look into re-recruitment. :)

To make this quick, here are some ways to move forward:
-Invite someone we already know
-Pick someone from the previous recruitment. Honestly, we could take both Ichabod (rogue-like, has disable device) and Selena (full arcane) to patch our gaps and bring us to a party of 5.

That would be so very thematic.


Im honestly happy to just continue as is. The game is slower paced conpared to my other one thats only slowed down because im finding it hard to sit down and type things lately. Theres not a lot of combat in this mod, some ive even skipped because it feels thrown in for no good reason.

Im not really game to recruit another right now. But if youd feel safer gestalting or are happy with how things are at the moment we can go from there.

Seems like we all have some gestalt plans. Max can just gestalt bard and cavalier rather than having one level of each.

And I support having Jerax gestalt as a godling!

The one thing disadvantageous in taking the Sanguine Angel, is that it is very much melee oriented. Literally a sword & board angel of vengeance.

Alessandra's a ranged oriented character. She is meant to go into Evangelist, originally.

Ah, probably the wrong way to go, then. Evangelist is awesome!

A few options i was considering, was ranger, due to boosting options in ranged combat, and a meatshield in the form of an AC.
And Empyreal bloodrager, which switches cha for wis as casting stat.

Urban barbarian? Gets d12 HD, Controlled Rage feels like a good fit for an Eiseth worshipper.

Urban ranger could be nice to get Disable Device alongside the awesome benefits of ranger feats and animal companion.

So it looks unanimous on the gestalt thing. Thats fine if you feel more comfortable like this with a smaller group. No 3pp though. Jerax remains a god only in his head.

[plays sad evil music]

Okay. I have gestalted the antipaladiin with fighter (armiger). There should be no change to Jerax's backstory or prior actions.

GM, how many cities/towns would the AP roughly cover?

Urban ranger is useful for Disable Device, yet seems an archetype centered around a limited number of urban places.

If you decide against Urban Ranger, another option for DIsable Device is Slayer taking the Trapfinding Slayer Talent. Lots of useful stuff from Slayer.

Since we are still very early in,

Can i per chance rearrange my ability scores?
I'd drop Dex to 14, raise strength to 14 , int to 12, and wis to 18.

I will at least partially take some levels in Zen archer, and they benefit from better wis, both for AC and attack with bows.

I'd naturally change alignment to more lawful.


Male Orc Expert 5

Im gonna say no. At that poont I might as well let everyone just redo there characters. I'd rather just keep it to slapping the extra class on there and moving on.

This book has felt so combat lite thus far i wouldnt even fuss too much about capability for bloodshed.

No problem.

Might be future goal for retraining. :)

Would changing aligment from NE to LE, be allowed?
For taking zen archer.

Jerax, Maximillian, question for you two.

I'm starting up another run of Wrath of the Righteous PC, and i've got a mod that lets me make gestalt characters, and one that adds anti paladins as an option. Are your current matches of classes final, or will there be further developments? Like, oh, hellknight from Jerax perhaps? ;)

I was considering adding our trio as gestalt mercenaries in the party.

To my knowledge, Jerax is staying with the gestalt classes he has. Though under the right circumstances (i.e. killing a devil of great level than you), Jerax could change from armiger to hellknight.


Male Orc Expert 5

Sadly the devil run is super late game and under developed.

Jerax and nenio/daeran interactions sound hilarious.


F 1/2 orc Gestalt Inquisitor 2/ Zen archer 2, Darkvision 60ft, Perception +8, init +7, Fort +5, Ref +5, Will+7, AC 18/14/14, HP 14/14, CMB +1/CMD 15

Hellknight class is PrC, we needn't kill a devil.

Devil run is funny, but could use more time to shine.
I had a lot of fun with Trickster, and the Aeon offered interesting moments.

I wish i could outright kick Nenio's arrogant @ss.
Never took her with me, through out several runs.


Male Orc Expert 5

Nenio is also hands down one of the strongest companions.

Cause wizard.

Besides the companions do not lack for arrogance and poor build choices.

And I'd trade all of them for Linzy.

I know absolutely nothing about the WotR PC game. But to answer your question, Max is probably keeping his existing classes absent any character development surprises. There's an argument to be made for inserting the Battle Herald prestige class (which was vaguely the original design of non-gestalt Max). But Battle Herald feels a little redundant when I'm already advancing Bard due to gestalt.


Male Orc Expert 5

I'll be looking at moving on tommorrow.

I'm also going to go through the book and start hacking off fat.

Thanks, TarkXT! Appreciate the thinking there.

I'm heading into a busy period through April 7. Apologies for any delay. Will check in when I can--please feel free to bot me.


Male Orc Expert 5

Aight, ima sit down and like, take a marker to this book. It's pacing is not at all pbp friendly reading through it.

I might just fast track to it so your sadism and torture of civilians is actually horrific as opposed to kind of dickish.

I kind of imagine a big throwdown--town vs. us three BBEGs. With the BBEGs winning, for once!


Male Orc Expert 5

Rebellions, even truly bloody ones, rarely turn out like that.

On that note I think i have the book sufficiently hacked and rearranged to streamline it more.

The rebellion point system feels superfluous in the extreme. Theres no real consequences one way or another and since the archbaron wishes to nurture the rebellion to a point of recklessness trying to keep it low kind of runs counter to the stated plan. It's full of little contradictions like that.

So I'm gonna get things back started so yoi can be allowed to get a bit more unhinged. It makes sense for the rebels to exercise caution and subtelty. Not so much the oppressors.


Male Orc Expert 5

On that note just how long were you going to keep bolgart in the pillory?

Seems like nobody is in a hurry to let him go. :)

I assume he's being fed and such and can go on like this forever.
