Any GM Glyphs to share?
Anything unusual about your character I should know?

In the event that a player is expected for more than 24 hours in combat or another situation where we're waiting on that person, I may bot you. I will not use any consumable resources unless asked. If you'd like to share some bot instructions, great!

On the Slides (also linked in the header), you'll find space to add your character information and token and to set a general marching order.
There's some information and images for you there, as well.

Make sure there's a character sheet accessible in your profile.

It looks like we're in high tier with a few minimum-level characters. Remember the level 3s get a level bump, and they can each choose two of the Mentor Boons their higher-level teammates have. So share your Mentor Boons too! (And go purchase them if you haven't. They're free, you just need 20 Reputation with any one faction!)

Feel free to start introducing your characters.


Hi! I will post as Kirana once I've filled her character sheet out on the website (she's been solely on Discord up until now).

She's a Water Kineticist with the Blessed One archetype and the Time Traveller background, but she is only level 3. She was a Priestess of Aroden before she moved in time.

I do have one glyph to hand out - I'm not quite to my second.

Hello!

GM, upon reading the first post, I realized my character Hammid lacks a proper sense of humor, and instead would like to bring Bangy Piper. I am unsure how to change my RPG Chronicles entry, but here are the relevant details:

Character: Bangy Piper
Class and Level: Barbarian / Rogue 6
Society ID and Character #: #2366390-#2012
Faction: Envoy's Alliance

I have 3 Glyphs, and will gladly share them with the next three characters to post intros in Gameplay after Bangy Piper.

He has the Skillful Mentor boon, granting a bonus to Skill Checks if you take him as your Mentor!

Skillful Mentor:

For any PCs benefiting from a Level Bump and whose levels are lower than yours, you increase the Level Bump’s modifier to skill checks to 2.

Howdy folks. Level 4 Investigator here. I also got the Psychic archetype.

GM, how do you do Current Leads with Investigators? It's difficult to track when the +1 should be applied, especially in PbP where it would take too long to ask.

I have the >Trap Finder< feat, so GM, please give me a heads up if we're walking into a trap.

I have 2 GM glyphs to share - I will prioritize level 3 characters.

My mentor boon is:
Protective Mentor (Radiant Oath): Help low-level PCs at your table by increasing their Hit Points as part of a Level Bump.

IIRC you get either 10% or 10 more Hit Points, whichever is more. Saved my level 1 character's bacon when she took a nasty critical hit.

Hello all! Grog here. Grog absolutely have sense of humor!

Just updated him online for 5th level. Darn website kept giving me that error but everything seems to have taken...

Nothing special, just a Goblin champion of Cayden Cailean. Who brews adult beverages in his spare time.

No GM Glyphs. I think i'm one or a few GM sessions away from the first.


We have enough glyphs for 2 Hero Points each.

It looks like we are going high tier. I will update this goblin's stats. He will also take the Skillful Mentor boon.


You can choose two of the Mentor Boon effects your allies offer.

(Also, "must have a sense of humor" is an in-character request by J Dacilane and not a requirement to play. A character who does not have a sense of humor at all, actually, could be a very good fit!)

I guess I'll take Protective and Skillful. Does that mean an extra 20 hit points in total?

I believe you will get 10 extra Hit Points, since it's either that or 10% of 47 - aka 4.

The level bump grants 10 already, so an additional 10 makes 20 total.

Sorry for the low responsiveness. I thought I was finally on top of things last night, and then the power went out. The weather was completely calm, so it was a real surprise. I use a laptop, but... no power to the router. Got an e-mail from the power company this morning, which just says it was an "equipment problem."

No worries. It happens. My local ISP is, well.. local. Occasionally we just lose network. Could be 5 minutes, could come up a minute after we call them. :)

Hey folks!

My posting will be a little spotty these next few days, as some things have come up in my living situation right before I leave for the holiday. I will do my best to check in now and again, but keeping expectations low.

I am traveling 20th to 27th.

I'll be at a face to face convention from tomorrow (Friday) til Monday. Will be checking in but may be more delayed than usual. :)

This game is moving along quickly so feel free to bot me if I'm holding everyone up for a few hours. Grog will happily throw himself face first into any more flying pies!


And here I thought I was going a little too slow.

Hero Point time, though! Any nominations?

Aw. How sweet... I was having a hard time deciding between , well, pretty much all of you with great RP and being helpful in general but for some reason I have decided to nominate Griphook!

Nominations:

Alice - a woman of few words but great actions.
Kirana - Kineticist in a skill based adventure can be difficul sometimes.


Then let's go to Hero Point: 1d4 ⇒ 3 Alice!

Apologies for being missing in action this week. We had two audits, and then suddenly I got a nasty flu that prompted me to take a much-needed rest. I haven't had the chance to update the games I am playing. I am slowly getting back to the games now.

I think it'll take you a 2nd stride to arrive where you intend.

The current combat tracker makes no mention of "mirrored difficult terrain" but I think it is still active.

I moved your token into the room, including through two squares of "mirrored difficult terrain"... you probably have one stride left since the fires are out.

Thank you for this. Makes sense. That will be two actions to Stride, and Courageous Anthem for one action for the turn since the fire is already put out.

Oops. Absolutely right. I got it mixed up with focus spells.


Yes, the fair folk are hypocritical.

Fey Friendship vs Pappy's Ire measures the party's relationship with the caravan, but that doesn't necessarily mean that making them mad is wrong. They just don't like it.

Also, they're unfair but not completely unreasonable--you didn't earn any Ire for using lethal damage against the evil fey setting fires. You could potentially have impressed them and earned Friendship by dealing with them nonlethally, but it's a tall order and if you fight back, the rest of the caravan is like... yeah, that's fair.

And I suppose I should probably award another Hero Point around here...

Bangy would like to Hero Point that first flat check if allowed!

He has a spare


Sure, that's what they're for. Use 'em or lose 'em.


I always check discussion first. Maybe I shouldn't. Miss context for the questions.

Bangy wouldn't be able to use Surprise Attack, because that requires a Deception or Stealth check for Initiative. He was on stage talking about awards, so wouldn't be able to use another exploration activity at the same time. I'll grant you the weapon draw during Numblekin's rant.
You might not need it though... but we do need flat checks for Alice.

I'll just roll them, since they're most likely both successes anyway.
Alice Flat first attack: 1d20 ⇒ 11
Alice Flat second attack: 1d20 ⇒ 14
Bangy Flat check reroll: 1d20 ⇒ 2

Ah. Poor Swayaah. Waiting to use that lead in combat for the whole scenario.

If anyone wants to roll downtime in this thread, now might be a good time.

For what it's worth, I would contest that claim.

He got angriest with the Opossums - and would go with that - but it looks as though his decision is the least popular...
