Welcome to the game!

Before we begin, please fill out the macros, slides and signup sheet linked at the top of the page. On the slides please add your token and work out the matching order. Please also dot in to the gameplay page with the character you will be playing.

If you have GM glyphs to share, please post who you are giving them to here.

We’ll use this forum for general discussion about the game.

A bit of housekeeping:
* Please post once per weekday and once on weekends. Real life takes priority of course, but let us know if you'll be unable to post for a bit if you can. In combat, I'll generally delay a character if they haven't posted for 24 hours while it is their turn. However, if you have botting instructions on your character and are happy for me or another player to bot them, please post below.
* As per the Pathfinder Society Community Standards, each player must decide if they will allow their characters to be damaged by friendly fire (usually via splash damage). While accidental friendly fire happens due to missed attack rolls or other factors, players must obtain the consent of other players before deliberately including fellow PCs in damaging effects. This rule does not apply in situations where a character is not acting of their own free will, such as if they’re being mind-controlled by an NPC and forced to attack a fellow Pathfinder.

Thanks for joining and I hope we’ll all have a fun game!

I have 2 glyphs.

Homework done.
One Glyph, but ask me again next week.
If Shimmer is in danger of taking splash damage from allies, something has probably already gone terribly wrong. Which is the perfect time to make it worse, so go ahead!

Thanks for the intros everyone. We still have a few tasks to finish before we can get too far in though:

Glаshа The Watcher - Sign-up sheet, Slides, Macros, glyphs
Niccolo Neska - Sign-up sheet, Slides, Macros, headers with your status
Orion Oneiros - Slides
Cirri Merryweather, the Strix - glyphs

Shimmer, Sprite Investigator - all good

and for those who have glyphs to distribute (thank-you!) could you nominate who they go to please?

Lastly, please keep in mind that we have one PC who uses void healing and takes damage from vitality healing.

Vigilant Seal

He is normally not in an area for splash damage so it is okay if he gets it, BUT no positive damage please.

Vigilant Seal

What is the template for the profile information?


Actions: ◇ ◆ ◆◆ ◆◆◆ ↺

There is a good guide on header format in Numbat's How-to Guide for PbP.

I'd also suggest having pronouns in your character's header so your fellow players and I have a quick way of checking we have them right when posting.

Vigilant Seal

Thanks!
His pronouns are Master. of Past. and Present ")

Did Orion notice Niccolo's scowl? That would be important to him. His perception is a +7.

Most likely he would, lets say DC is 12 - feel free to roll

Got it. No biggie. Orion has adventured with other Pathfinders who are undead, so he's not going to react negatively. Nicolo just had a different way of expressing himself.

Quote:

Perception: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (11) + 7 = 18

Religion: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (14) + 7 = 21
^^^ to see if Orion can understand that Niccolo's ancestry has something to do with it.

Vigilant Seal

He isn't undead though. He is undead adjacent :)

I'm hoping we can start the game proper in the next 24 hours. With the holiday period coming up, I wanted to check with you on what pace you would prefer to run the game?

If we move at a decent pace we can likely finish the game in three weeks. With a bit of pushing we can likely get it done before Christmas.

If we take a more leisurely pace, but still posting once a day we should get done a week later.

Lastly do we need to schedule a break in play? Will anyone be unable to post for a bit between now and new year's?

Vigilant Seal

My school does not get out until the 21st so I am fine to post whenever.

Radiant Oath

Female Sprite Investigator 2 | HP 24/24 | AC 19 | F+5 R+9 W+6 | Perc +6 | Speed 20ft | Hero Points 1 | Exploration: Investigate| Active Conditions: None | Leads: None

I'll give my Glyph point to Cirri.

No pacing preference. I always think I'll have more time during holiday breaks, but it never works out.

Any pace is fine with me, but fast is always better.

Verdant Wheel

f N deep orc Drow Shootist 2 | hp 32/32 | AC 19 (+1) | F +7 R +10 W +5 | Perc +7 | Darkvision

I'm here and ready to play. Everything is filled in.

No problems with friendly fire (as long as it doesn't kill me).

I would prefer a fast pace. I'm leaving on December 28th for two weeks and will be out of touch until January 14th.

Thanks Glasha, so I think we are almost there on set up.

Niccolo Neska - Sign-up sheet, Slides, Macros, glyph distribution

Cirri Merryweather, the Strix - all good
Shimmer, Sprite Investigator - all good
Orion Oneiros - all good
Glаshа The Watcher - all good

Based on what everyone has said I'll keep things moving fairly quickly.

If you stay within 30 feet of me, I can spend two actions to let you Stride half of your speed. I'll try to use this if there are at least two of you nearby (I can target up to 4.)

Vigilant Seal

Do we have enough glyps to make sure everyone has 2?


Actions: ◇ ◆ ◆◆ ◆◆◆ ↺

Only three glyphs by my count. One from Shimmer to Cirri and the two you (Niccolo) have to give out.

Verdant Wheel

f N deep orc Drow Shootist 2 | hp 32/32 | AC 19 (+1) | F +7 R +10 W +5 | Perc +7 | Darkvision

I have one glyph too.
I’ll give it to Shimmer

Vigilant Seal

Does anyone not have one?


Actions: ◇ ◆ ◆◆ ◆◆◆ ↺

Thanks Glasha, that gets us to four. Each person can only receive one extra hero point from glpyhs.

Niccolo please choose (or roll) two PCs from Niccolo, Glasha and Orion to receive your glyphs.

Vigilant Seal

Glasha and Orion can get my glphs.

Shimmer, I couldn't see where the second d12 comes from for the crit.

One is from the Jezail's Fatal aim but is the other from a different ability? I'm not familiar with the firearms though :)

They're both from Fatal Aim.

Fatal Aim is a kind of a cross between the Two-Handed and Fatal traits. Instead of having different damage dice depending on number of hands, it has the Fatal trait only when wielded two-handed.
On a crit, Fatal replaces the weapon's base damage dice with a higher one and also adds an extra die. It's a better version of Deadly. So if that was a hit you can ignore the d12s entirely; if it was a crit the first d12 replaces the d8, gets doubled, and then add the second one. The bonus die doesn't double, since it's extra damage added on a crit.

A lot of guns have Fatal. I don't necessarily think realistically a direct hit from a gunshot is any worse than a direct stab from a sword, but genre-wise I think it's often treated that way.

Thanks for the explanation!

Medicine checks should work okay on him, correct?


Actions: ◇ ◆ ◆◆ ◆◆◆ ↺

Yes, treat wounds will work fine for Niccolo as he is still living.


Actions: ◇ ◆ ◆◆ ◆◆◆ ↺

I'll wait for a few people to post (or ~10 hours to the end of the day here) before moving on to the consequences of barging the door down :)

Sorry, came home last night ate and went to bed. Tough week at work.


Actions: ◇ ◆ ◆◆ ◆◆◆ ↺

We are into the holiday period now. I'll be around if people post but I won't expect everyone to post daily until 2nd Jan (or earlier if we all agree). So I expect things will progress slowly for a bit.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!

Quick update on hero points - everyone other than Shimmer (who used one) and Niccolo have 2 hero points remaining. This is the big fight...

Oh and I should have given away another hero point by now - one goes to Niccolo, so he has 2 now also.

Vigilant Seal

Today was the last day of school before break, which begins tomorrow until around the 8th. Deo Gratias!

Well played everyone and thank-you for a fun game. For those that have filled in the form, I have sent you your chronicles via email and reported the game. Please let me know if there are any problems.

Niccolo, either send me your details via PM or let me know once you have filled the RPG Chronicles form in please and I'll get a chronicle to you. There may be a deadline for reporting though - I am not sure.
