I was wondering, since we don't know how long Petyr will be gone, do you want to re-recruit another member or just keep it to the 2 we have until he gets back?

I'll let you guys decide what you want to do.

Do we know for certain that he is coming back? I'm fine with him being NPC'd and sticking with two....

I'm thinking maybe send him another PM and if he doesn't respond within the week, we reopen recruitment?


Roll20 link

That sounds good to me! His spot will always be open, but getting another player in will certainly help us get going until he is able to return.

If we're leaving the prison maybe it would be better to open the recruitment now?


Roll20 link

Vesorianna is on the first level of the prison, Morganne. She’s the ghost of the old warden’s wife. I don’t blame you for wanting to head back to the town to recover from the storage wounds, just keeping you updated on who’s who.

I can open the recruitment tomorrow, it’s a bit late for now.


Roll20 link

Recruitment reopened!

Also, on that note, when you report back to Vesorianna you'll hit level 3! Whenever you confirm that's what you want to do (and then head back to town to rest and recover) I'll get what she says up in a post.

@ GM: I have an icon ready for Raj and I can see the game on Roll20 but I'm not able to create a character sheet to append the icon to it and drop it into the game.

Hello and welcome to our little group.

One comment. The Accomplished Sneak attacker wouldn't give you the 3rd die 6 on your sneak. "Your number of sneak attack dice cannot exceed half your character level (rounded up)."
The feat is really only good for you if you multi-class and skip a couple levels of rogue.

DOH! I should have read the fine print again. Most recently I've been using Accomplished Sneak Attacker on a multiclass character.

Hmmm... well that gives me a feat to spend.

>:) <-- generating vicious ideas

Also, the weapon finesse training applies to damage. But you need to select a fighter weapon group to apply it to. (not just one weapon. This is from the Feat tax rules.)

Hmm.. it appears HeroLab doesn't have that update working correctly. If I understand you correctly, making Finesse Training apply to 'Monk Weapons', makes all my current attacks (Unarmed, Shuriken, and Butterfly Sword) do DEX damage. Or do I have that wrong?


LOOT HP:22 | AC:18 ; T:18 ; FF:12 ; CMD:22/16 (+2 vs grapple+) | Fort:+3 ; Ref:+8 ; Will:+3 | Init:+5 ; PER:+8 (+10 vs invisible/incorporeal) (Low-Light) SM:+10

Double-checked Raj against the EitR docs. I think he is 100% legit now.


Male Tiefling Fighter(Weapon Master)/Bard(Duettist) | HP: 28/28 | Perception: +9 (Darkvision 60'), Sense motive: +9 | Diplomacy: +14, Intimidate: +9 | AC: 17, Touch: 13, FF: 13 | CMD: 17 | Fort: +5, Ref: +6, Will: +4 | Init: +5 | Bard Song/day: 11/11 | Spells: 4/4 | Active: Tears to Wine +2 to all INT/WIS skills: 30 minutes

Looking in the fighter weapon groups under monk weapons that would apply to:
bo staff, brass knuckles, butterfly sword, cestus, dan bong, deer horn knife, double chicken saber, double-chained kama , emei piercer, fighting fan, hanbo, jutte, kama, kusarigama, kyoketsu shoge, Lungchuan tamo , monk's spade, nine-ring broadsword, nine-section whip, nunchaku, quarterstaff, rope dart, sai, sanpkhang, sansetsukon, seven-branched sword, shang gou, shuriken, siangham, temple sword, tiger fork, tonfa, traveling kettle, tri-point double-edged sword, unarmed strike, urumi, wushu dart

Yes, At level 3 the uRogue gets to pick one weapon group and the dex training applies to hit and damage. Helps to balance the rogue with the fighter for damage dealing, even when they can't get sneak.

Don’t worry Rajuna, we’ll get you in here soon! Just this one matter to handle, and then they will head back to Kendra’s home and add you to the party.

Don’t forget, the other two, that you’re level 3 now.


LOOT HP:22 | AC:18 ; T:18 ; FF:12 ; CMD:22/16 (+2 vs grapple+) | Fort:+3 ; Ref:+8 ; Will:+3 | Init:+5 ; PER:+8 (+10 vs invisible/incorporeal) (Low-Light) SM:+10

No hurry. Raj is either apologizing to Kendra for missing Doc's funeral or worrying about how to apologize for missing it. :D


LOOT HP:22 | AC:18 ; T:18 ; FF:12 ; CMD:22/16 (+2 vs grapple+) | Fort:+3 ; Ref:+8 ; Will:+3 | Init:+5 ; PER:+8 (+10 vs invisible/incorporeal) (Low-Light) SM:+10

Hey, Chief, do you mind if I write up a little scene for Raj entering town as a prequel to meeting the team?


Roll20 link

Be my guest! After they finish this interaction they’ll meet up with you.


Roll20 link

Apologies, thought I had posted. Must've gotten caught on waiting for Morganne. Where we headed first, Vesorianna or down into the lower levels of the prison?


LOOT HP:22 | AC:18 ; T:18 ; FF:12 ; CMD:22/16 (+2 vs grapple+) | Fort:+3 ; Ref:+8 ; Will:+3 | Init:+5 ; PER:+8 (+10 vs invisible/incorporeal) (Low-Light) SM:+10

I'm good with heading down to the lower levels unless the team has a reason to quiz Vesorianna about something.

Also, are there any buildings near the prison? I don't recall reading about those in the gameplay thread.


Roll20 link

Here's a map of the prison. The small house to the left of the prison is the old warden's house where he lived with his wife, Vesorianna.

It has almost collapsed and was dangerous to even enter, and there wasn't much of any import inside the house.


LOOT HP:22 | AC:18 ; T:18 ; FF:12 ; CMD:22/16 (+2 vs grapple+) | Fort:+3 ; Ref:+8 ; Will:+3 | Init:+5 ; PER:+8 (+10 vs invisible/incorporeal) (Low-Light) SM:+10

I’m thinking we renovate and then fantasy Airbnb it!

When we were checking it out we got the feeling that it'd be easier and safer to level it and rebuild....

Better yet though. Renovate the prison and name it the Ghost Motel!

The Whispering Way Hotel and Golf Casino... 18 holes you'd die to play!


Roll20 link

Sorry for the delay, holiday things and such. I’ll get a post restarting us at the prison, detailing what you see at the bottom after you fix the elevator when I get off work. My apologies!


LOOT HP:22 | AC:18 ; T:18 ; FF:12 ; CMD:22/16 (+2 vs grapple+) | Fort:+3 ; Ref:+8 ; Will:+3 | Init:+5 ; PER:+8 (+10 vs invisible/incorporeal) (Low-Light) SM:+10

No worry… and happy holidays!


Roll20 link

Reusing the init thing I've seen other people use, the bolded OOC names are the ones up next. Should help move combat along faster!


Roll20 link

Still with us, Morganne?


Roll20 link

I messaged Morganne on Discord this morning, but they haven't responded yet. What do you guys want to do?

You can bot her for this combat, but it seems as if we're caught in a revolving door of party members.


LOOT HP:22 | AC:18 ; T:18 ; FF:12 ; CMD:22/16 (+2 vs grapple+) | Fort:+3 ; Ref:+8 ; Will:+3 | Init:+5 ; PER:+8 (+10 vs invisible/incorporeal) (Low-Light) SM:+10

Hmm... we are in between major holidays and some players do vanish this time of year. I guess I'd give Morganne a little more time to respond to your PM or jump into the game before looking for another player.


Roll20 link

Yeah that's actually fair, I sort of forgot New Year's Eve. Makes sense, I'll give them a bit longer.


LOOT HP:22 | AC:18 ; T:18 ; FF:12 ; CMD:22/16 (+2 vs grapple+) | Fort:+3 ; Ref:+8 ; Will:+3 | Init:+5 ; PER:+8 (+10 vs invisible/incorporeal) (Low-Light) SM:+10

I just stalked Veegees current games. Their last post in another game was around 12-Dec, as was ours. In another game their last post was 19-Dec. Since then, all silent. Seems like whatever happened took them off the boards, for the time being.


Male Tiefling Fighter(Weapon Master)/Bard(Duettist) | HP: 28/28 | Perception: +9 (Darkvision 60'), Sense motive: +9 | Diplomacy: +14, Intimidate: +9 | AC: 17, Touch: 13, FF: 13 | CMD: 17 | Fort: +5, Ref: +6, Will: +4 | Init: +5 | Bard Song/day: 11/11 | Spells: 4/4 | Active: Tears to Wine +2 to all INT/WIS skills: 30 minutes

Still nothing from Petyr/Poly? I hope this isn't another cursed game! I'm liking it!!!


Rat Bastard, Cheeky Monkey, Sly Fox, <insert anthropomorphic animal metaphor here>

I'm in it until the wheels come off.

All that said... maybe botting Morganne for this battle would be good, or you could just have her delay so we can carry on. I hate pausing mid-battle. :)


Roll20 link

I’m not a fan of botting PCs myself, usually prefer the group to make decisions for characters in combat. Feel free to do so now, will make it easier on all of us.


LOOT HP:22 | AC:18 ; T:18 ; FF:12 ; CMD:22/16 (+2 vs grapple+) | Fort:+3 ; Ref:+8 ; Will:+3 | Init:+5 ; PER:+8 (+10 vs invisible/incorporeal) (Low-Light) SM:+10

OK. Let me familiarize myself with the character and I'll bot her.


LOOT HP:22 | AC:18 ; T:18 ; FF:12 ; CMD:22/16 (+2 vs grapple+) | Fort:+3 ; Ref:+8 ; Will:+3 | Init:+5 ; PER:+8 (+10 vs invisible/incorporeal) (Low-Light) SM:+10

OK, I have a question... is Morganne 2nd level or 3rd? Her profile looks like it is 2/2. Looking back through the thread, she should have leveled up to 3 but that isn't reflected on her character sheet. I'll update my auto-bot version while trying to stick to the choices she might make.


Roll20 link

Yeah, should be 3. Think you leveled up before heading back into town ‘yesterday’, so she hadn’t leveled yet?


HP:x | AC:x ; T:x ; FF:x ; CMD:x | Fort:+x ; Ref:+x ; Will:+x | Init:+x ; SM:+x ; PER:+x (vision)

Not on her profile. She was definitely 2nd level... didn't even pick the feat she gets at 3rd.

I've built her in Hero Lab and will post her under the Auto-bot profile.

Quick question, and feel free to tell me this is too rules-sleazy to do... If she leveled yesterday in game time, could she immediately learn Lesser Restoration as her second level spells and try to get rid of the CON damage on Park and herself? Then today (in game terms) commit those spell slots to other spells?


Roll20 link

That sounds fine to me. They healed one damage each overnight, and Park is the only one with 1 damage left.

Also, unrelated but I've just learned how to turn off the snapping to grid and having to precisely edit maps to fit said grid issues I've been having with Roll20 the entire time I've used it. Didn't even know you could turn the grid off, this will save so much time!

Editing the map now to show more detail, now that I can mess around with sizes without worrying about fitting it to the grid.

Edit: I just learned how to use fog of war too, this will help me so much!


HP:x | AC:x ; T:x ; FF:x ; CMD:x | Fort:+x ; Ref:+x ; Will:+x | Init:+x ; SM:+x ; PER:+x (vision)

Take those victories where you find them!

Lesser Restoration (Morganne): 1d4 ⇒ 4
Lesser Restoration (Park): 1d4 ⇒ 1

CON damage gone!

That's very useful. And we still have all the charges on the wand if/when we need them.


Roll20 link

You killed the last ectoplasm thing with those last attacks, and now we come to the question of what to do.

Push on and just wait a few days into the new year? Wait until then? Re-recruit? I’ll leave it up to you guys.


Male Tiefling Fighter(Weapon Master)/Bard(Duettist) | HP: 28/28 | Perception: +9 (Darkvision 60'), Sense motive: +9 | Diplomacy: +14, Intimidate: +9 | AC: 17, Touch: 13, FF: 13 | CMD: 17 | Fort: +5, Ref: +6, Will: +4 | Init: +5 | Bard Song/day: 11/11 | Spells: 4/4 | Active: Tears to Wine +2 to all INT/WIS skills: 30 minutes

Maybe give it a couple days for Morganne to answer? If there's no reply by Wednesday we can ask one of the previous submissions? I'd like to have a dedicated healer, but don't really see that on the list.


LOOT HP:22 | AC:18 ; T:18 ; FF:12 ; CMD:22/16 (+2 vs grapple+) | Fort:+3 ; Ref:+8 ; Will:+3 | Init:+5 ; PER:+8 (+10 vs invisible/incorporeal) (Low-Light) SM:+10

OK, my bias is always in favor of momentum. I'm for continuing the adventure right now. I'm happy to play Raj and bot Morganne for the foreseeable future. We do that while waiting to see if VeeGees reappears. I'd say giving him/her until after new years would be a nice courtesy.

At that point, if we still have a no-show, I'd vote for a re-recruitment. I'd suggest we specify that one of the classes - in the gift that is a gestalt game - should be a true healer (like a Cleric or a Life Oracle with the channeling revelation) not some healing-adjacent class or a class with 'some healing spells'. This is Ustalav and it seems like an undead heavy campaign - at least at this stage. A channeler is a huge advantage and neither Park nor Raj are tanky builds. The candidates can build to that requirement or not. If they don't, I'd be entirely fine eliminating them from consideration.

EDIT: I re-read that and I can see where it sounded a bit cold-blooded. Sorry about that... but I put on my DM hat and that is what came out.


Roll20 link

I think I agree with Rajuna here, we can continue from here with him botting Morganne in combat. I might recruit two players to the group to bring our total to four to help with this in the future. Will require a bit more balancing on my part, but I think it'll be worth it.


Roll20 link

Was gonna post and get us moving forward, but it seems as if Roll20 is down? So you can't see the map to look which direction you'd want go next. I'll take a look tomorrow and see if it's back up.
