⚔ Battlecry! Playtest @ #1-14 "Lions of Katapesh" ⚔ (Inactive)

Goblin patriarch, merchant, and Pathfinder Society ally Yigrig Moneymaker needs help! The cunning goblin merchant has big plans to build a bridge that will connect two promising trade partners, but something is stirring up the local wildlife and convincing the lions and other predators of the Katapeshi plains that goblins are more tasty than can possibly be true. The Troupe must find out who's responsible for the trials Yigrig's family faces before the lions of Katapesh devour the entire goblin clan and end the chance for trade between two desert cities.

I linked it, Amiri, in an edit to the combat tracker. Click refresh!

Yes, because Grab uses Grapple!

=)

For our humans in the party (anyone with normal vision) - who was carrying lights?

Your 20-foot radius of vision is relative to those people.

Going to dig and see who brought what...

Looks those are our three light sources!

Thx!

I don't think demoralize has a critical failure effect. I always just flavour it as the PC looking really stupid.

I will get your bless radius expanded on token when I get home.

Also will add to combat tracker as reminder.

Thanks for moving the lion token!

I expanded the bless and added a light radius. :)

I almost added a light radius for everyone but realized it would get too messy.

Perhaps the one drawback of goo slides that is insurmountable by reasonable (non-“busy”) means…

Is our near-death lion completely untargetable and did he run past Amiri during his movement?

Right past her, yes. One fast stride out the cave entrance.

That's a wrap folks.

Spellcasters stole the show?

Plot Points (Open if Curious):

Visu Mas is a wizard who made a horrible mistake when attempting a magical ritual to transform herself into a lich. Instead of creating a phylactery and becoming undead, she ripped her soul away completely, transforming herself into a shade less powerful than a common ghost. After years of experimentation, she discovered her ability to possess the forms of animals, albeit incompletely. In an attempt to find the strongest animals in the area, she dominated a small group of great felines, compelling them to become her servants. While her ability to possess these animals grants the felines a portion of her intelligence and allows Visu to feeding from their life force, her control is not complete and she has a long way to go before she can gain the influence and resources she’ll need to discover a way to reverse her situation. However, when the goblins entered the area to begin bridge construction, Visu hatched a new plot to restore her former power. By slaying as many goblins from the work camp as possible and using her power to animate their corpses, she plans to amass an army of loyal undead and unleash it to achieve her goals.

The bandits are a small band of brigands who live in the desert and survive by raiding nearby settlements. While they have not directly attacked the goblins yet, they have been watching the perimeter of the camp to prevent them from being reinforced while the primary antagonist deals with them.

As Visu Mas has expanded her powers, she has managed to enact a small amount of control over one human; the bandit leader. While this is not a true possession, she has influenced him enough to guide the actions of the bandits in ways that serve her ends.

Treasure Bundles (8):

You earned all the Treasure Bundles except for Goblin Morale (only 5 Morale Points), which I will deduct 2 TB for being well under the 10 Morale Points you needed to get full rewards.

Don't you also need PFS/character information there?

Ida spends her downtime crafting a batch of minor elixirs of life.
Crafting: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (19) + 11 = 30
She has the formula, so one day to set up and 6 gp. She earns a value of 8 sp per day x 7 days = 56 sp. She'll spend the remaining 4 sp to finish.

I did not expect to have it end like this...can I do a final RP post?

Edit: Not sure if I can do downtime and get credit for Clara since I don't think I indicated that she was my proxy.

Also ggs, hope to play with you guys again. I'll write up my playtest thoughts sooner rather than later...when does playtest end?

Go for final posts if you like! I await my Contact Sheet to populate.

You all followed the tracks immediately, bringing the conflict to a head. Plus, I ran at Speed-run pace. Two waves of heal obliterated the final encounter. Too efficient.

Crafting (T), Earn Income if it's allowed, level 1 DC: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (19) + 4 = 23

Just because I have to go soon. Please ignore if I'm not allowed to do this with this PC. But I'm pretty sure it's a success against the Level 1 DC 15, which gives me 2 sp x 7 days = 1.4 GP.

Can't really give you much feedback on the playtest since I couldn't really use the new abilities all that much.
