Definitely interested and considering characters. Possibly some kind of Slayer or Brawler.

Very interested as well. Have done a good bit of pbp a number of years ago and would like to get back, and this sounds like a great combo of a good fit and a very interesting adventure

I've been a way from the table and pbp for awhile and would love to get in on a game again, especially Strange Aeons, and will post a character later today.


Interested! I haven't had time to sit at a table for almost a year and it's been even longer since I did some PbP, but I sure could use it. I'll mull over some ideas and post something in the next day or two, and am thinking maybe keep it simple w/ unchained rogue/ranger/sorcerer. Questions: would it be helpful to pick up any of the Lost Lands stuff? What are you hoping for w/ post rate? I'm fairly flexible and can usually do multiple posts a day, and actually find it easier than posting once every day or two, etc.

Sorry for falling off a bit, but real life has been nuts. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things and will post soon, and will try to pick up the pace, too.

Traveling again today. I should be caught up and back to regular posting tonight or tomorrow.

Out of town for the weekend. Will catch up later.

Again... it's not the word "light" that interacts with darkness spells... it's spells with the "Light" descriptor (note the capitalization). Lasers don't have the Light descriptor, so they function normally in darkness like any other ranged weapon.

Makes sense to me.

Pew! Pew! Pew!

Kudos to Mr. Bub for suggesting ;-)

Every once in awhile, I have a good thought.

Glad to see people are trickling in.

Just a suggestion, DM Kludde, but you might want to PM the players who signed up in the recruitment thread and remind them we're about to get rolling.

Funny that it looks like most of the naysayers in this thread are subscribers to multiple product lines. I don't believe that any of them are really done with Pathfinder. I want to see some Bluff checks.

It will be interesting to see what the 3rd Party Publishers will do with the stuff in this.

Wow. I imagine everyone who remembers the Barrier Peaks stuff will be immediately adding this to their wish list.

Nice to see Mr. Spicer is in demand and keeping busy with the writing projects. Way to go!

Yeah, sorry to see Doran go. I was looking forward to hiding behind him. ; )

All kidding aside, I just want to say it seems like we're off to a great start. Things are interesting (I want to know what's in the damn chest!), the characters are great, and we're moving right along at a nice pace. Thanks, again, Lord T, form running the game.

Try the Beginner Box

Welcome to this wonderful hobby and this fine community. If you're just starting out, the Beginner Box is a great product. Jumping right into an adventure path and the core rules will probably be overwhelming. RPGs are also kind of tough with a GM and just one player so you should start thinking of friends you can recruit as well.


I'm new to PFS and have realized that I can't play an Oracle because I don't own the APG in either physical or PDF form. So, I'm going to go with a dwarf fighter instead. I'll create a profile and get him statted up in the next day or so.

Hey, all, my apologies if I post this in the wrong forum if it's addressed somewhere already, but I have a quick question. If I'm playing in a PFS Gameday 2 pbp with one of my PFS characters, am I prohibited from using that same character in PFS games at my local FLGS while the pbp game is going on? I thought I saw something about only playing a character in one scenario at a time, or something like that and was wondering how that's affected by the existence of the online games.

Hey, I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but it's the closest I can find to what I think would be appropriate. I also don't know if this will make any sense, but, can someone at Paizo move an alias I created from the list of my PF characters to my non-PFS aliases? Awhile back I created an alias from Merisiel under my PFS characters because I was playing her as a PreGen in one of the PFS gameday pbp games. I think I should have created her under my regular aliases instead so my PFS characters show just the two I have created, and not the pregen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


I'm in Arlington and interested in playing, particularly during weeknights a couple of times a month. I actually just tried out my first PFS game tonight, but would rather get into a regular game.

Stonk - when & where is your weekend RotRL game? What level are you guys?

Hey, Xyro! (Edit: just realized his post was from awhile ago, but Hey! anyway)

I'm okay with you rolling initiative for me as well.

I'm good with you rolling for us.

I hope everything works out okay. Take you're time. We'll be here.

Definition of "activist judge". A court that makes a decision the poster does not like.

I was thinking the same thing. How does deciding a case in accordance with the Constitution and in light of existing case law make a judge an activist?

Aw, man: when I'm busy I just check my campaigns and forget about the other stuff. Sorry to have missed out.

Hey, Bilzabub: that campaign was great. We must be among the elite few people annoyed that our GM left us to do professional RPG writing :D

Yeah, but good for him. I used to play in another game with Neil Spicer, too. It started before he won Superstar, and he just got busier over time. It's good to see players from the boards do well.

The Beginner's Box Player's Pack includes the Barbarian.

I had a similar problem when I tried posting just a dice roll, but when I added some text, it went through.

Lagavulin & Laphroiag are two of my favorites, although Oban is my go to stuff more often than not. I also was recently given a bottle of Spinnaker, which is new to me, and quite nice. I'll take them all basically neat, with just a drop of water.

For bourbon, I have to go with Elmer T. Lee, and please, for the love of Cayden Cailean, don't mention that honey flavored crap in the same breath as the words "good bourbon." Seriously.

Also, don't get me going as to Southern Comfort, which as far as I'm concerned is a candy flavored drink and not whisky/ey at all.

Just FYI, Lord T, I'm going with Kelwyn being employed by Doraedian Mythlord. He's mentioned in the player's guide as being the Elven master of Iridithil’s Home, an elvish sanctuary, and quite influential in town. Kel will be his right hand, acting behind the scenes kind of guy. I don't have the Ptolus main (monster of a) book, so if there is any info in there that you want to share, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks, and thanks, also, for running the game. I like the characters everyone has put together and it looks like we're off to a good start!

Let's go with messenger. Changes made.

Can I go with messenger & get a special contact? If not, I'll go with Laborer and +2 to diplomacy.

Lord T - According to Kelwyn's background he's sort of an information gatherer and problem solver for a powerful family. Could I use House Dallimothan or Kath? Also, none of the backgrounds in the Player's Guide feel right for him. Any thoughts? I'm okay with skipping one.

Yeah, Kel is much to handsome, smooth, and well liked to be a harrow elf. No offense, Vaelus.

I'll go with Shoal elf for Kelwyn and the urbanite racial trait swapped for the sailor and geography bits. I'll clean him up and make sure he's good to go tomorrow. Thanks.

This is the forum for recruitment for online games. You should post on the Gamer Connection forum instead.

The good Lord Thasmudyan previously said we could reroll 1s for HPs.

Thanks, Fiendish, and enjoy everyone! I look forward to adding this game to my must read list. Now let's see how long you survive the undead horde . . .

Very cool! I'm really looking forward to this. Like I said before, it's great to seem some love for Ptolus and I'm excited to take part in a regular adventure rather that a never ending (by php) adventure path. I'm already about half way through the Player's Guide and ready to get going.

BTW, if anyone wants the free Player's Guide, you can find it at Drive Thru RPG.

I'm in, and either sounds good to me!

I'm seriously surprised there's not more love for Ptolus on these boards.

Geraint Elberion and I played in a RotRL pbp way back when so I have to say, Hey, Man! How are you getting along?

applicants so far:

Geraint Elberion - Raim Scrimshaw, Aasimar Ninja
Camris - Tony Nedraid, Rogue (Swashbuckler)
Gengjuro-Zero - Vaelus Wraithkin, Harrow Elf Fighter/Rogue/Samurai
Billybrainpan -
Spazmodeus -
Tanner Neilsen - Victoria Whitesmith, Half Orc Alchemist
Billzabub - Kelwyn, Elf Rogue

Sounds fun, and of course, I actually remember when this was the way it was done.

Str 3d6 ⇒ (6, 4, 3) = 13
Int 3d6 ⇒ (6, 3, 3) = 12
Wis 3d6 ⇒ (4, 4, 2) = 10
Dex 3d6 ⇒ (3, 1, 6) = 10
Con 3d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 1) = 8
Cha 3d6 ⇒ (6, 6, 5) = 17

. . . Hmmmm . . . An elf, I think.

So, for characters, that looks like:

1. Broken Prince - Vesaparo, a rakshasa spawned tiefling swashbuckler 2
2. cuatroespada - Chandler, a half elf bard (archaeologist) 1
3. GlennH - ?
4. CWalk889 - Malena, a human sorcerer 1
5. pedwiddle - Cressyk, a half orc inquisitor 1
6. Billzabub - Siladil, an elf oracle 1
(7.) Rhanloi - Rhanloi, an elf wizard 1

Very tempting, although I'm not up on the Mythic stuff.
