Please fill out Slide 4 on the handouts with your PC's token art and pronouns, and the macros. If you want different art than what is on the Paizo boards that is fine by me.

We'll aim to officially start Wednesday, but please feel free to explore this scene in-characer if you like! The feelings of going away for school or the first time, being in a city like Nantambu for the first time, or getting interviewed for admission may all be interesting character moments.

I can't believe I passed the flat check on my first try. During an admissions test, at that! Hopefully, I don't need to explode very often today, though.

EDIT: Posting this here for reference since it changed from the playtest (and GMs shouldn't need to memorize every new mechanic).

Unstable Trait wrote:
Unstable actions use experimental applications of your innovation that even you can't fully predict, and that are hazardous to your innovation (and potentially you). When you take an unstable action, attempt a DC 17 flat check immediately after applying its effects. On a failure, the innovation malfunctions in a spectacular (though harmless) fashion, such as a belch of smoke or shower of sparks, and it becomes incapable of being used for further unstable actions. On a critical failure, you also take an amount of fire damage equal to your level. As the innovation's creator, you can spend 10 minutes retuning your innovation and making adjustments to return it to functionality, at which point you can use unstable actions with that innovation again.

You may want to consider how you're tracking gold and loot. I'm not sure if everyone wants to do it on their own, use a spreadsheet, etc. I leave that up to you.

Hero point to Chimwemwe for his relevant questions on the mission and being there to keep things moving, and Akoril for maybe getting his brain eaten.

Yea, you should also know what its called. Its a disease called Purple Pox. As far as you know you can treat it like any other disease. You also have seemingly confirmed the kind of creature that gave it to you. Certainly not a waste.

That was more an expression of Chimwemwe's response to his individual findings not the aggregate. :)


SoT (Semester 1 Year 3): Tactical Map, Handouts, Macros ⠀Sundered Song: Map & Handouts, Macros ⠀Pallid Peril: Map & Handouts, Macros

No worries. I should have given you the disease name too, and clarified that its treatable! Important details :p

Soomdevi watches to see if Chimwemwe’s eyes go red when he unleashes the energy his armor.

They, technically, only actually glow red during regular Overdrive--until level 3 when some other things come online. But how they look in the middle of a fire? To a conspiracy chasing kayal? Who knows!

Akoril: You forgot to add Inspire Courage effects.

I feel like we'll be repeating that to each other through the campaign. Alas. The fate of bards.


M Gnoll Magus 6 | HP 76/76| AC 23 | F +13 R +13 W +9 | Perception +7, Low Light Vision

I did indeed, I made to note to ask Doug about courage and spellstrike damage, and then forgot about the whole thing.

I think the conclusion was that it stacks with the spell and the strike.

Please level to 2, choosing your free archetype and your primary and secondary branches. Please feel free to rebuild if you want, and ask any questions in Slack.

Soomdevi: You forgot to add Inspire Courage.

EDIT: I didn't forget, exactly, but I should have asked rather than assuming it didn't: does Inspire add to damage effects without attack rolls?

Yes.

Inspire Courage wrote:
You inspire your allies with words or tunes of encouragement. You and all allies in the area gain a +1 status bonus to attack rolls, damage rolls, and saves against fear effects.

There are no qualifiers on that, it's just all damage rolls.


M Gnoll Magus 6 | HP 76/76| AC 23 | F +13 R +13 W +9 | Perception +7, Low Light Vision

The real question is "does it apply to level 1 daze"?

Did Wisps get any response when she tried talking to spiders? It was before the combat.


SoT (Semester 1 Year 3): Tactical Map, Handouts, Macros ⠀Sundered Song: Map & Handouts, Macros ⠀Pallid Peril: Map & Handouts, Macros

Yes, I made a note of this and then totally forgot to include it!

The spiders were content and sleepy; this is a time of bounty with so many yummy centipedes everywhere. Never in the time of all spiderdom have there Baan so many plump and delicious meals to find. (The spiders are immune to their venom).

The construct is not armor.

Oh. Apologies. I changed the text but not the title. I had changed to Tamper vs. Weapon because I came to the above conclusion. :)

I think crafters appraisal doesn't change the time needed to ID the statue. The leshies would let you touch it but not examine/hold it for 10 minutes.

Yes. No. That was a misunderstanding on a hasty reread. I thought that was second place. :)

You know, given Chizire's tendency to fall asleep, really should have stayed to be the look out and just simply failed a Perception check. ;)

Let's reset hero points for this part.

Chim and Alrinkiri will start with 2 for helping with the accounting for the AP. Everyone else has 1.

I will also keep a close eye on hero points for this part as we're going to be dungeoneering.

I don't think it's any secret that we will be finishing Part 1 of the AP after this combat. I want to give you a chance to fill out your info a bit early, to allow you to plan. You will get 12 XP as well as access to several Uncommon masks of the Magaambya.

For PFS credit, please fill out your information here: on RPG Chronicles.

You MUST include your current XP if you have a partial level's worth. The app will then will calculate your bundles based on that weighted amount (for example my -2004 had 8 XP. They got 58 GP total [3 sets: 14+22+22]). You can calculate your own earn income.

You have completed book 1. We'll spend a day or two wrapping up the loose ends and closing out this scene with the anadi seekers, but we can distribute chronicles whenever you're ready. You can also go ahead and level up to 4.

I am thinking we will have a week of downtime between books and I will present options for that after we wrap up.

Just because I think this is fun, and I want to give credit to the AP author respecting and sharing their source of inspiration! I know the Mpeshi fight was difficult for you, but I think it is such a cool creature. This is from a sidebar in the ap:

Lightning Legends

The mpeshi is based on the akampeshimpeshi, described by the real-world Lamba people of Zambia as a beast accompanying the lightning before becoming trapped on the land. The webs that the akampeshimpeshis ride down to earth are broken by their impact. Akampeshimpeshis are dangerous creatures; when sighted, they are hunted and burned by warriors with protective magics laid on them for this purpose.
