For the next joining? I think we should do that discussion in character, in the game thread.

The magic dagger as a ready light source and back-up weapon is pretty cool.

If you all want Alden to carry it, I presume he could hold it in his off-hand the same as he could a torch, despite not having two-weapon fighting.

There would just be a massive penalty to hit if it came down to using it in an off-hand attack.

If you would prefer to trade it in/sell it for armor or equipment upgrades, I'm fine with that, too.

You have a hand free when using a shield, so technically you should be able to hold a light source just fine. If you're not using it as another attack then TWF shouldn't apply. I'll look at if the dagger's light can be extinguished or not, but sheathing it is always an action.

What makes discord any different than posting here?

Maybe nothing to most people. I can use discord on my phone, tablet or computer, so can read or post anywhere. I've tried posting here from my phone. It worked, but was much harder. Tablet worked a little better, but I feel much better posting a long post with a real keyboard. So with Discord I had no trouble keeping up with the faster posting.

You can also create alternate threads for whatever you want/need. Each player can get a thread for character details. Another for tracking unassigned treasure. The search tool can find a post from several hundred back without having to search pages of posts.

Finally, if you ever want to do a real time voice chat session, that option is also available. From my experience a live, voice-chat session can be equal to months worth of play-by-post in terms of progressing through a campaign.

There was a brief discussion of it in a different thread; if you want I can send it to you. I think the agreement was it's a matter of whether you use Discord for other things, and thus are more familiar with it, versus those of us who only try to use it for PbP and have trouble adapting to it.

So this group seems to have a knack for stumbling across some of the rarer mechanics of the campaign. Not to mention percentile rolls. When a percentile range of shard is rolled twice it is not rerolled. Rather a special bonus is included into that one shard in exchange for the group losing an option. It's even more of a bonus if you roll the exact same number.

I'm here but since the PCs can't communicate with Alden I don't feel it's my place to address what his PC is going through and deciding.


I don't have an issue with people informing Alden's decision OOC so long as his IC decision fits. It is a group campaign, and you all didn't get to talk out every detail in advance.

Unless people are plotting in DMs. :D

Sadly it isn't apparent if Alden is going to be able to find a wife in any of these shards without a closer look. It is a possibility though.


Male Human Paladin (Warrior of the Holy Light) 2 l AC 19 T 12 FF 17 l CMD 17 I HP 22/22 l F +10 R +6 W +8 l Init +2 l Perc +1

After thinking about it, I should have probably taken the hints, and looked at the two shards with the strange power surges. If you want to have Deshrit ask the clarifying question about the treasure cave in character, Alden can change his mind and ask to look at shards 1 and 5 instead.


Alden potential wife tracker: Error, undefined parameters.

Alden potential wife tracker: A baboon strolls up....
I would have said a Stag, but, no!

Well, a beautiful woman alone in a pool of water just screams Fae Creature That Will Seduce, Drown, Then EAT YOU. Of course, she may just be some lady who lived alone in the woods at the time of the Breaking, and is enjoying the solitude.

The second shard looks like it might be the Zombie Apocalypse Kevan was hoping for, but on a more manageable scale.


Male Human Brawler 2 | HP: 19/19 | AC: 17 T:14, FF:13 | Init: +9 | Fort +5, Ref +7, Will +2 | CMB +4; CMD 18 | BAB: +2, DEX: +4 | Acrobatics+9, Bluff+4, Climb+6, Escape+9, Perception+7, Ride+8, Sense Motive+7, Stealth+9, Swim+6, Craft(Weapon)+10, Handle Animal+3 |

Hmm.... I read tall, lithe, and indecently attired, and "sunning herself on a rock nestled in the center of the pond". I didn't see beautiful? Sounds like she might be Alden's dream wife! And the forest just screams woodsy for Erastil.... Wait! Erastil is about communities and families, farming and hunting, not nature.

But then there's that cave under the HUGE stump, with the roots that'll just reach down and strangle you as you try to explore.... I'd have it wait, and let the whole party pass. Then it would push roots down to close off the exit and grow into the area to strangle and/or crush everyone. As it drains your life force it grows a sapling out of the center of the stump, a new vampire treefolk to wander the forest!


To be fair, Alden didn't get a good enough look to see if beautiful. XD

Or it's been so long since he's seen an unattached woman near his age they all look good? ;)

BTW Eochaidh would have a mix of horror and fascination with vampiric treefolk.

Kevan has a perception of 9 so he can do fairly well at keeping watch.

Do we want to do pairs, I'm assuming?


Male Human Paladin (Warrior of the Holy Light) 2 l AC 19 T 12 FF 17 l CMD 17 I HP 22/22 l F +10 R +6 W +8 l Init +2 l Perc +1

Alden has terrible Perception (+1), so maybe the two of us should pair up to provide balance?


M Halfling Witch 2 | HP 15/15 | AC 14 | F2 R3 W5 | Init +8 | Per +4

Seems fair, then Eochaidh and Rabbit can buddy as well?

And grumpy me can 'pair up' with the artificial tiny dragon?


Male Human Paladin (Warrior of the Holy Light) 2 l AC 19 T 12 FF 17 l CMD 17 I HP 22/22 l F +10 R +6 W +8 l Init +2 l Perc +1

Alden is happy to pass the dagger to a member of the next watch, who can then pass it to a member of the last watch.

Whether they carry it or stick it in a tree, it should light up a fairly good section of the campsite.

Sounds good to me. And Eochaidh has Light as an Orison so he can keep a part of the camp illuminated with that.

Jaxom would keep it sheathed but have a hand ready to pull it if he hears anything. A light like that could be seen for miles on a clear night. No need to attract.... anything.

Wow, lots of humans. Kevan has darkvision (class trait) so he will avoid the light if trouble starts. During watch he will tell stories unless hushed.

Eochaidh has low-light vision which will help a bit.

LOL! True. That's why I didn't role Intimidate. Well.... That and I don't have the skill!


I don't think (Neither does Talschornvox.) that there is any way in hell the party will actually hand over all the etherium they come across. At it's lowest value that is 500 GP of crafting supplies toward magical items every time you merge shards. Not to mention it's other properties.

...and that's assuming the amount doesn't scale in some way.


People liking to haggle or at least convince themselves they are getting a deal is most of the reason Sears went under.

I apologize if I 'dropped the PCs in it' by Eochaidh's actions.
I'm considering my options and have PMed the GM.


To be clear I am not upset about Eochaidh's actions or the player's ooc comment.

The choice of words was deliberate on my part, but not on Alden's. He didn't even notice his own play on words. Puns and "Dad Jokes" aren't his thing, so it didn't even occur to him when he said it.

If your character is so inclined, feel free to call him out or mock him.


These two days can more or less go as the group wishes. You can simply come up with a plan of attack/barter, attempt to learn more about the dragon, or do miscellaneous things around the village.

How much you want to do that IC vs OOC is up to the group.

LOL! Jaxom doesn't find anything funny about the dragon. And he'd never call out Alden for a pun, intentional or not!
