Against the Cult of the Reptile God

Game Master EltonJ

Adventure to find out the cause of the decay of Orlane. This adventure was designed for 4 to 7 adventurers of 1st through 3rd level. After this adventure is over, I might advertise for the Slavers' Cycle.

Well, as an alternative to the Slave Lords cycle, we can do -- THE TEMPLE OF ELEMENTAL EVIL!

Hell to the YES!,

I never really liked ToEE very much... compared to the other early "Super Modules" like the G-series or the D-series. I would go with Slavers before ToEE, but that is just my 2cp

I'm definitely up for either adventure!

I'm good with either, with a slight preference toward Slavers.


I’ve played through toee a fee times, but that was ddo, so on one hand I am not really excited to do it again, but one the other, it would be interesting to see how it differs.

I just wanted to check in with everyone and make sure folks are OK with Tavern Tale's penchant for lying. The reasons it's a part of what she does are twofold: because she thinks she may be being hunted by two different groups and wants to try to hide her identity, and because of the general darkness that permeates the whole of her home city of Istivin, some of which has seeped into her being.

I think you guys are mostly tolerant of it at this point, but with a paladin and goodly cleric in the group, it would be better to know. That way I could easily switch out her archetype before we've gotten deep into the campaign. Please let me know ASAP. I'm intrigued by the Brazen Deceiver archetype but not dead set on it.

While Gothia understands sometimes needing to twist the truth for the greater good, I cannot say that she is enamoured by lying for lying sake. A "tall tale" now and then can be tolerated, but constant lying will simply have her not trust the person and most likely attempt to either correct the problem or distance herself from the person.

I have a grudge against ToEE, I've started in many times and never finished it once and I want to BEAT it! My problem is that I'm running it for my regular game group using dnd 3.5 right now and I'd have to play out my OOC knowledge. ToEE would be my preference.

Brenfine understands the need for lying occasionally, but like Gothia, will only tolerate a little of it before seeing that it has to be addressed.

I am new to Pathfinder, I've only played it occasionally, which XP track are we using, fast, med or slow?

Fast.

Fair points. As of right now, Vesica has two main uses for her lying: to throw off any pursuers from her hometown and to enhance the tall tales she tells when entertaining to earn some spare coin. Another use I can foresee would be to lie to misdirect enemies. For example, if we strongly suspected certain villagers of being members of the cult, TT could feed them false information that might make it seem that the party is vulnerable at a certain time, but we'd then try to ambush the cultists if they took the bait.

The thing with lying to the mayor was mainly to try out the ability but also because I realized that TT's acceptance of the first offer had potentially cost the others in the group potential gold. Still wrong technically but done with (sort of) good intentions.


Krishka also will not be very tolerant of lots of lying. Small twists here there are okay, but in general not. Except in combat, deception in a fair fight is still fair.

As to rewards, Gothia will never haggle when evil is to be defeated. In her mind, the destruction of the cult is its own payment...but she is rich lolo

OK, I think for now I'll stick with Vesica unless someone explicitly tells me to change. She won't be lying to fellow party members (except to hide her background, and at some point she'll likely come clean about that). She'll still use her Secret Keeper trait when she's telling her tall tales for coin in taverns, but that's more a case of keeping her exaggerations/artistic license somewhat believable.


Stuff happened. No idea if or when or how often I can participate further in either this game or the other game

Sorry to hear that. Hopefully the 'stuff' is more annoying than harmful, and that you can get back to normal ASAP.

Just a quick guide for bonuses when bless and inspire courage are running at the same time.

Bless and Inspire Courage +1 at the Same Time:

Bless: +1 morale bonus on attack rolls; +1 morale bonus vs. fear effects; duration 1 minute/level.
Inspire Courage +1: +1 competence bonus on attack and weapon damage rolls, +1 morale bonus on saving throws against charm and fear effects; duration 3+ rounds.
Both Effects Together: +2 on attack rolls, +1 on weapon damage rolls, +1 to saves against charm and fear effects.

Note: I linked this post at the end of Tavern Tale's stat lines in case this situation comes up fairly often.

That certainly helps me and your fellow players. Congrats on your initiative.

Aren't the trogs going to attack at some point, or was door-hacking and switching weapons considered their actions, and we're up again for Round 2?
