Just a heads up to the GM -- Rassmussen has the Misfortune Revelation, which allows Rassmussen to force a re-roll as an immediate action against any creature within 30 feet once per day. (Ult. Magic, pg 53) This is easy to do in-person at a table, but not as easy in a play by post game, where results are determined at the same time they are posted. So, I'd like to have an operating assumption that the first time an enemy (a) rolls a critical threat, or (b) succeeds on a saving throw, I'd like it to be understood that Rassmussen uses his Misfortune ability there.

To help my fellow players picture Rassmussen: does anyone remember Neil from 'The Young Ones'? Imagine him with a charisma of 24 (somehow).

GM,

It has come to my attention that I have made a relatively glaring rules oversight in my playing of Kal...

Because Kal is a Gnazi (native, outsider), he is intelligible for enlarge person (target humanoid). I haven't always used enlarge person, but I have used it enough over the last few sessions. He is my only outsider character and it honestly never crossed my mind.

It was a complete oversight on my part, and at this point I am not sure the best way to fix the current battle. He could stay normal size, and still be able to reach both green (reach) and purple (claw/bite). No change on the "to hit" but -1 to damage on both.

Sorry for the (huge) oversite.

Ganzi = chaotic outsider

Gnazi = goose-stepping gnome nationalist

15 points from Hufflepuff!

You can leave it for the rest of this battle and then we'll just assume the vagaries of your chaotic nature prevent you from doing it again.

Silver Crusade

open | NG male (he/him) human (Varisian) alchemist 13 | AC 27 (T 16, FF 23) | HP 120/120 | P +21, I +4 | F +16 (+18 vs poison), R +17, W +12 | Bombs: 23/23, Fly: 13/13, Clover: 3/3 | Active Conditions: ant haul

I didn't get a chance to post this before this fight, but for subsequent fights, there are plenty of shenanigans that Diazepane can offer with potions.

The alchemical allocation extract allows someone to drink a potion and spit it back into the vial, keeping it unused. Anyone who doesn't mind a little backwash can take full advantage of his potion inventory: invisibility (3rd, 5 min [12 min]), fox's cunning (3rd, 5 min [12 min]), cat's grace (3rd, 5 min [12 min]), protection from evil (3rd, 5 min [12 min]), remove deafness/blindness (3rd [12th]), remove curse (3rd [12th]), remove disease (3rd [12th]), cure serious wounds (3rd, 3d8+5 [3d8+12]), water breathing (3rd, 10 h [24 h]), countless eyes (3rd, 5 h [12 h]), good hope (3rd, 5 creatures, 5 min [12 creatures, 12 min]), stone shape (3rd, 15 cf [22 cf]), tongues (3rd, 50 min [120 min]). The brackets are the durations if Diazepane drinks them himself (he has a feat that extends potion durations for himself).

In addition, Diazepane has some fun extracts. These are fully consumable but some are worth consuming, like Greater Invisibility or Stoneskin on a melee combatant.

Level 1: Adhesive Spittle, Ant Haul, Comprehend Languages, Crafter's Fortune, Cure Light Wounds, Enlarge Person, Expeditious Retreat, Identify, Reduce Person, Shield, True Strike
Level 2: Alchemical Allocation, Barkskin, Cat's Grace, Darkvision, False Life, Fox's Cunning, Invisibility, Lesser Restoration, See Invisibility
Level 3: Channel Vigor, Displacement, Endure Elements (Communal), Heroism, Protection from Energy, Remove Blindness/Deafness, Remove Curse, Remove Disease, Resist Energy (Communal)
Level 4: Earth Glide, Echolocation, Freedom of Movement, Greater Invisibility, Restoration, Stoneskin

I didn't consider humanoids vs outsiders in selecting extracts or potions, so I"m not sure which ones will be applicable to the group as a whole.

A note for those who have not played with Diazepane before: by long-standing agreement with the GM, Diazepane will automatically exclude allies from the splash zones, and the 1d8 rolled for missed bombs works on an absolute scale (1 = North, 2 = Northeast, etc.) rather than the RAW which is a relative scale (1 = between Diazepane and target, etc.). This allows me to make conditional statements, e.g., switching from one target to another if the first one falls, without additional calculations.

Hey guys, if you're interested, I can get us a 7-8 table for Siege of Serpents.

Let me know and what character you'd be playing.

Silver Crusade

I would love to.

I have a level 8 monk/paladin reach build or a level 8 inquisitor-archer with a tiger. I would be happy to play either.

I don’t have any 7-8 level PCs…but I do have a 6th level that’s signed up for it…

As for this breaking exercise, Daedîn is unskilled in unarmed combat so he’ll just watch…


I could bring Bocke, but I'm afraid that I'll be stretched too thin.

I have a level 8 cleric who could be fun to play. In that range I also have a summoner, a straight fighter, an android inquisitor/gunslinger, a brawler/ninja, a wizard... and probably a couple more I'm forgetting.

Feel free to decide if you're going to the feast or not and what you do there.

But, what we've done so far is the basic cadence of a day, though the items come in different orders, sometimes - Match, Test, Exhibition, Night.


1st Taste of Eternity Games I've Played (Session Tracker)

Hey guys. Let me know if you're going to participate in the feast or just get some rest or wander around the island.

Silver Crusade

open | NG male (he/him) human (Varisian) alchemist 13 | AC 27 (T 16, FF 23) | HP 120/120 | P +21, I +4 | F +16 (+18 vs poison), R +17, W +12 | Bombs: 23/23, Fly: 13/13, Clover: 3/3 | Active Conditions: ant haul

Diazepane would have offered extracts of channel vigor (mind) (granting at +4 circumstance bonus to ranged attacks) and reduce person (granting a +2 size bonus to DEX) to any teammate, if the GM would allow a retcon. I intentionally didn't see whether it would affect anything.

Silver Crusade

Oh, as for Diazepane's nerdage ... always go for Target 3, even with displacement.

Target 2, normalized for blur:
White: 2*0.8 = 1.6
Black: 3*0.8 = 2.4
Blue: 4*0.8 = 3.2
Red: 5*0.8 = 4.0
Yellow: 6*0.8 = 4.8 <-- only one not worth attempting over Target 1

Target 3, normalized for displacement:
White: 4*0.5 = 2.0
Black: 5*0.5 = 2.5
Blue: 7*0.5 = 3.5
Red: 9*0.5 = 4.5
Yellow: 11*0.5 = 5.5 <-- better than Target 1 and Target 2

Target 3, normalized for blur (Daedin):
White: 4*0.8 = 3.2
Black: 5*0.8 = 4.0
Blue: 7*0.8 = 5.6
Red: 9*0.8 = 7.2
Yellow: 11*0.8 = 8.8

The Target Area depends on the shooter's modifier, but the equation is nonlinear. Just experimentally:

23 or higher: Yellow
14-22: Red
13: Red or Blue
11-12: Blue
10 or lower: White

Never shoot for Black.

Hello fellows,

I'll be going on vacation today. I'm heading to Austin so I probably will have internet connectivity but probably won't be able to post.

Male Elf CG Sniper 8th / Slayer 3rd / Ranger 2nd| HP:108/108 | AC:27 T:18 FF:19| CMB:13 CMD:30 | Saves F:+13 R:+23 W:+8 (+2 vs enchantments) | Init:+14 | Per: +25

Daedin has +2 Handle Animal and +11 Ride…but if they’re able to close quickly, that could negate my ranged ability (my only melee weapon is a dagger)…Svetlana has +9 Handle Animal and +5 Ride so I’m guessing it should be one of us…

I’ll do it if no one else wishes to…if I get initiative, I might be able to do some damage as my sneak attack will kick in…if not and she’s able to close quickly, might be a short fight…

Take one of my extracts of greater invisibility. You'll sneak attack the whole time and avoid AoO (unless they can see invisible).

If the goal is to keep the tiger up, Rassmussen might actually be a decent choice too. He can keep the animal healed and shielded and buffed, and Spiritual Weapon down the boar. Plus he has a little Handle Animal. Someone with offensive abilities would probably still be a better choice.

Impressive run, guys. I hope you enjoyed it. Let me know what I could have done better. I know I got bogged down/missed some mechanics sometimes.

Feel free to RP out anything you're interested in and ask any questions.

I'll start working on the chronicle sheets...as soon as I get acrobat downloaded on my new computer.

Alright, Gents. HERE are your Chronicles.

As always, let me know if you have any questions or if I messed anything up.

I'm going to start prepping 7-20 All For Immortality: First Taste of Eternity to begin the arc that ends with 7-29 Serpent's Fall. (There's one in between there, too.)

I'll ask again later, but let me know if you're interested in continuing with the Hao Jin Saga.

The Chronicle looks great! Diazepane is interested in continuing until the very end.

He'll be level 13 after the tournament.

Thank you!

Also keen on continuing on if you have space. Will continue on with everyone's favourite Hellknight.

We don't get too much melee going with the speed the range damage rolls out of this party, but I suspect the tournament really favoured that type of engagement. Sort of ideal conditions...! :)

Likewise - I haven't played any of the Seeker content so it's a great opportunity.

I have enough GM credit I'm due to apply that (with the Ruby we just got) would make her 14, and hit 15 on the last adventure of the trilogy - I have never seen a fully levelled out Hellknight in the wild (despite over 400 games!) so it would be pretty funky.
