Hello to all in the group. I will be your caster and work to blow up all of our foes!

Hello! I'll be playing Dhruva, the young human ranger born and raised in Otari, along with her faithful hound, whose name I'm still going back and forth on but I think might be Diana (Dia for short?).


I’m reading up on the 2nd and 3rd AP book then i will start the first post in the gameplay thread. I’m also inputting info in onenote so everyone will have access to game information.

Should I get some of those action symbols? I don’t know much about the expected format here.


1 person marked this as a favorite.
Sorcerer 11: AC 28: HP 116/116: Fort +20, Ref +20, Will +18: Perception (Darkvision, Low Light Vision) +19:

I just do an OOC comment that lists out how I spend the actions and how many actions a spell or attack takes.


No need for action symbols.
When speaking in character use bold font [b] [/ b]

Do your three actions in separate lines. Obviously if it’s a double action it’ll be on a single line. But add in ( ) 2A or 3A stating it’s a double or triple action.

Use italic font to explain what your character is doing like, Dhruva runs up to the closest enemy and attacks with her dagger.

Use ooc to let me know what you’re doing outside of combat and communicating with PCs and NPCs. Ex. Does Snag get any information using his goblin lore skill.
I’ll roll random passive stuff.

I have the critical deck on the way as i post this, so on a confirmed critical attack once per day (in game) per character I will pull a card from the deck at the players’ discretion meaning you have the choice when the card is used. There is no critical fail cards being used. These foes will be tough enough.

I’m hoping to get at a minimum 1 response a day. If you fail to respond your turn will pasted by. I’ll have to replace your character after 3 missed responses. I would like to complete this AP since I spent the money on it.

I should be done reading through the 3rd book no later than Sunday, so we should be able to start Monday.

Any other questions please feel free to post them in here. Thanks


Sounds good!


If y'all could pm me an email address so I can give you permissions to access my Onenote PC notebook page.

Also I've read that this is a very tough AP, so if it becomes more than challenging for the group I will allow a 6th PC to cover the role of tank.

I just remembered something. I will also roll initiative to set the stage as well as keep the momentum of the campaign.

Can you open up the game play so we can dot it? That will make it alot easier to track when the game starts.


Male N Tengu Bard(Maestro) 1 | HP 12/12 AC 17 | F +4 R +5 W +6 | Perc. +6 (lowlight)

Ditto on game play. It is much easier to monitor the game once it is on my campaigns list.

I am otherwise ready to go! Singing troubadour strumming a lute in the corner.


Did we decide if we were or weren't using the Ancestry Paragon rule?


I was reading up on the paragon rules and it would probably be a good addition, as this seams to be a deadly campaign. I finished reading the last book last night and I also completed a couple things on Onenote. If I could get each of you to get to your character sheets there and input information I would very much appreciate it. Also your equipment page.

You may add the paragon rule to your character sheets


I still need email address from Badhru for Onenote access

I do not know how to use Onenote - my Character Sheet (including full Equipment Records) is hosted in it's entirety in it's Alias - let me know if this is a dealbreaker GM.


Sorcerer 11: AC 28: HP 116/116: Fort +20, Ref +20, Will +18: Perception (Darkvision, Low Light Vision) +19:

OneNote is just a Microsoft online note taking app. You should be able to just copy and paste your character in for the most part once you get access to the sheet.

I have not seen the email for access though in case you sent it to the rest of us.

I am picking up the Bouncy Goblin feat as my Ancestry Paragon feat.


Look in you trash. I sent an invite to an alt account and thats where it was. I will send another message. I have been inputing info that i can comprehend in your posts. It would be nice if Paizo created something better for pbp games.

It’s not a deal breaker, but it gives me important info to keep track of your PCs on my end. In case you miss a post. Also if you drop the game for any reason I can use your character as an NPC.


Sorcerer 11: AC 28: HP 116/116: Fort +20, Ref +20, Will +18: Perception (Darkvision, Low Light Vision) +19:

I found it. I will fix up everything tomorrow.

In the OneNote, what does (-1 AP) mean for some of the skills?


Skills:
Acrobatics: 12, Arcana: 11, Athletics: 14, Crafting: 1, Intimidation: 15, Catfolk Lore: 11, Geneology Lore: 11, Society: 15, Survival: 11
Litorian Barbarian 8 (DD- Silver Draconic Bloodline) - HP 124/124 , AC 27 (11 Temp HPs; Resist 6: Piercing/Cold while Raging) - Perception +11 (Scent); - F: +17/ R: +12/ W: +11 ; Active Condition- None; Default Exploration Activity: Search

I think that is your Armor Penalty.


Female NG Human (Versatile) Precision Ranger 1 | HP: 20/20 | AC: 18 | F: +7 R: +9 W: +5 P: +7 | Spd: 25ft | Hero Points: 1 | Conditions: None

Oh in that case I shouldn't take the penalty, since I meet the Strength threshold for leather armor.

Yes armor penalty


That’s why i want y'all to look at your sheets so you can make corrections i ma have missed.
I started working on the opening post for gameplay. It will be quite long, but it tells the story of how ended up in Otari, who you’ve met , and what you’ve been doing up until the opening scene of the campaign. Please bare with me while I write this up. It should be done this evening at the latest.


Sorcerer 11: AC 28: HP 116/116: Fort +20, Ref +20, Will +18: Perception (Darkvision, Low Light Vision) +19:

Sounds awesome!


I don't have any equipment info for snag


Sorcerer 11: AC 28: HP 116/116: Fort +20, Ref +20, Will +18: Perception (Darkvision, Low Light Vision) +19:

I am filling out the sections now. He doesn't have much.

Everything should be in now. I just bought an Adventurer's Pack. I did not list out each of the items in the pack.


Male N Tengu Bard(Maestro) 1 | HP 12/12 AC 17 | F +4 R +5 W +6 | Perc. +6 (lowlight)

OK, think I updated the few holes in Notes. I picked Storm's Lash as the extra ancestral feat.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the character page. I am working on filling in your equipment page


Question for Akka Dak. How do you get +5 for your attack roll bonus. Just curious. I think I’m missing something.


Sorcerer 11: AC 28: HP 116/116: Fort +20, Ref +20, Will +18: Perception (Darkvision, Low Light Vision) +19:

I get Focus Powers. Do you have a preference on where you want to view them?

Akka-Dak @ +3 (trained proficiency level one) +2 (DX because finesse / ranged) = +5?


So basically your using dex in place of str?

Basically yes.

Notice the Finesse tag on each of dagger, rapier, and whip.

(It's also interesting to notice that Finesse weapons basically top out at 1d6 damage!)


I’m still learning as I go that’s why I made the Onenote notebook. It’s a learning tool as well as a character tracking tool


How much wealth did you end up with after buying gear? Sorry this question was for Snag.


Sorcerer 11: AC 28: HP 116/116: Fort +20, Ref +20, Will +18: Perception (Darkvision, Low Light Vision) +19:

I have 9 gold and 4 silver. It shows up on the equipment page for me. I almost forgot my spell component pouch.

Where should I put Focus Powers?

I added it to your spellbook page above cantrips


Akka Dak what musical instrument do you have?


Game is in session. Sorry if Snag’s speech is not the way you want to play him. Feel free to speak as you want to in game


Sorcerer 11: AC 28: HP 116/116: Fort +20, Ref +20, Will +18: Perception (Darkvision, Low Light Vision) +19:

To speed up combat do you want anyone who is before the monsters/baddies to go or should we wait for others to go before us?


you can post your actions, but they wo't affect the battle until your turn.
Also Hammid, you are 3 rounds out headed toward Otari. You will be able to attack on the third round, but you will have to spend an action to dismount. you may have your weapon out and ready


Female NG Human (Versatile) Precision Ranger 1 | HP: 20/20 | AC: 18 | F: +7 R: +9 W: +5 P: +7 | Spd: 25ft | Hero Points: 1 | Conditions: None

Huh, is it normal for a PBP for you to RP our characters for us? I wasn't expecting that, I was looking forward to doing my own introductions... it seems like we skipped over a lot of roleplaying opportunities, what's the rush?

I didn't even get to address my character's motivation for joining the caravan, I'm just along for the ride I guess... I'll make a post tomorrow, I'm just very frustrated by this loss of agency and would like some assurance it won't be the norm going forward, assuming we can't get a redo. Kind of sucks the fun out of the whole thing.

Also, I'm a human, not an elf.


Wrin is the key npc to this campaign, so in order to get to the start of the campaign, I pushed it to that point. As the GM it is up to my discretion as to where the story starts. As for your race iI apologize for that. This is the point where you start interacting with one another and begin the campaign.

Strong echo here - I also vote for a soft reset.

How bout y’all just tell your own story and when you get to Wrin I’ll start the campaign story. Heads up you don’t go to Absalom


Also you can’t have a camel. They're not in the books I approved

That’s kind of more what I was hoping for, if other people are okay with it.
