Scarab Sages

Oof. I'm sorry. I'll be praying, and please let me know if there's any way I can help.

Scarab Sages

Way to roll there!

Scarab Sages

Stabby McStabface stabs Wilson the Ball and lets you go home.

Scarab Sages

x-y McXface

Scarab Sages

Those must have been in another squad. A squad we should make and take on some kind of suicide run.

Scarab Sages

Honestly? I'd do it. One of my guys is literally MacGuyver.

Scarab Sages

Come and get it! Darkness and pain for everyone! Now with a free side of even darker comedy!
And sometimes some downright heartwarming moments too.

Scarab Sages

I'm a little late, but this thread was Necro'd after four years of inactivity once. Time for me to do it again! RAISE THREAD!

I just happened to be researching what to Contingency with my high level Arcanist and this thread was very useful! I don't really like the Teleport option as that takes me completely out of the encounter. I do like the Resilient Sphere suggestion, though. It might trap me for a moment, but at least I'm still in the encounter.

Scarab Sages

Item 1: I could totally run L3-L4 or 5 if we need someone. I'm a pretty experienced GM, so I can get to cooking something if none had their heart set on that level range.

Item 2: I'm also ok with advancing to 3. If you're not pulling punches then we're going to need it, though the gestalt does help in the survivability department for sure.

Ruby Phoenix: I've run it for a party of two. If youall want to experience it then I can run that once we hit 11.

As for feats and items, I haven't had a lot of time recently to think on those, but I will do my best to get that sorted soon.

Scarab Sages

This is amazing. I just assumed that emoji were out, thus proving once again the value of assumptions.
I must experiment when I can!

Scarab Sages

Ya. I'm just too busy to really commit the time needed to dive into this. Sad Face. :(

Scarab Sages

I think that just means that, so far, we have an orc and a hobgoblin. I think. It's gotten kind of hard to keep track of who's what and going where.

Scarab Sages

Cuddles would fit well in either.

Scarab Sages

2 people marked this as a favorite.

Agree 100% there, Robert Henry. It seems like Nines put out the word and all the faithful flocked.

Scarab Sages

I wonder how a table that large would even work?

I've seen some games where there is a central hub and different groups of a larger "party" go out and do smaller missions from that central point, but I'm not sure how they worked out.

Scarab Sages

I've tried to do coordinated games before and the time lines are hard to sync. One table always seems to get out ahead or fall behind.

Rysky, I think it was mentioned that we're starting in 1 but moving through it fairly quickly? I'm not sure either.

Scarab Sages

Here's a Link to background skills if anyone needs a reference.

Scarab Sages

Take it where you can get it. He won't do it often!

I remember reading 'Cuddles' in a Whack-a-Rogue's (Yeah I followed his RoW game too) Skull and Shackles game. He was a wicked wrestler, when he wasn't giving everyone 'Hug's' that is...

Well lucky you he's making a re-appearance! He's been in several games, so it wouldn't surprise me if youall have seen him around. :)

Scarab Sages

He isn't done, but I thought I'd get the story out here!

Scarab Sages

I wasn't aware that they didn't get their spells known per lvl

Scarab Sages

Not having max str is really irking my character ocd. lol
I'll be fine, really. I'm just having to edit his backstory a bit.

Scarab Sages

The Party will be my handler!

Scarab Sages

Orc it is!
Str = 17 +4 = 21
Dex = 14
Con = 14

Int = 8 -2 = 6
Wiz = 12 -2 = 10
Cha = 11 -2 = 9

I sooo wanted that 18! *sigh*
For alternate Racials, I'm going with Dayrunner to avoid that pesky light sensitivity.

Scarab Sages

I just found the Trox. They are off the rails powerful, wow.

They're also perfect for what I want to do, but even I feel like picking them is cheating.

Scarab Sages

Oh, ok. Let's see then

Str = 17
Dex = 14

Con = 14
Wiz = 12

Cha = 11
Int = 8

Before Racials. Now to peruse the races and see if any can convince me to not be an Orc.

Scarab Sages

You may have picked the wrong group to play the dice game with, nines!

Scarab Sages

That's an interesting stat gen system. Let's see...
Main: 10 + 2d4 ⇒ 10 + (3, 4) = 17
Main: 10 + 2d4 ⇒ 10 + (1, 2) = 13
Main: 10 + 2d4 ⇒ 10 + (1, 3) = 14

Mid: 10 + 1d6 ⇒ 10 + (4) = 14
Mid: 10 + 1d6 ⇒ 10 + (1) = 11
Mid: 10 + 1d6 ⇒ 10 + (2) = 12

sub: 14 - 2d6 ⇒ 14 - (3, 1) = 10
sub: 14 - 2d6 ⇒ 14 - (6, 3) = 5

Hmm. A bit unlucky. But I can work with it.

Scarab Sages

I probably won't be checking in tomorrow, so Merry Christmas!

Scarab Sages

2d10 + 20 ⇒ (2, 6) + 20 = 28
2d10 + 20 ⇒ (5, 5) + 20 = 30
2d10 + 20 ⇒ (7, 7) + 20 = 34
2d10 + 20 ⇒ (3, 5) + 20 = 28
2d10 + 20 ⇒ (4, 8) + 20 = 32
2d10 + 20 ⇒ (3, 7) + 20 = 30
2d10 + 20 ⇒ (9, 10) + 20 = 39
2d10 + 20 ⇒ (5, 1) + 20 = 26
Int: 1d10 + 10 ⇒ (8) + 10 = 18
Fate: 1d10 ⇒ 10
HP: 25 + 1d5 ⇒ 25 + (2) = 27
re-roll the 26: 2d10 + 20 ⇒ (3, 7) + 20 = 30

Scarab Sages

I'll throw my hat in. I love 40k and this would be a great way to get to know the other side of Warhammer!

Scarab Sages

Man, 3 hrs in and already so many votes!

Scarab Sages

Those are fantastic resources, ITCampbell! Thanks for sharing!

Unfortunately I can't help with the troubles you have above. I'm just prepping to run this myself!

Scarab Sages

So the build won't come online until level 11. That kindof stinks, but such is life. I guess that means I don't need monk levels until much later. And I guess I don't even need monk if there's another class that uses a single style chain well.

Scarab Sages

I am unaware of that nerf. Do you need to take each feat in the tree in sequence?

Scarab Sages

So, I have three things in mind that I'd love to see folded into a singer character*, and I would like some extra minds to help me mull over the possibilities.

1) Mouser Cavalier cavalier. oops. Thanks, avr. You can get into your foe's square pretty easily (they just have to miss you) and you debuff them.

2) Monkey Shine style feat. Probably acquired via a two level dip into Master of Many Styles Monk. Even more in-your-space goodness, but buffing you this time!

3) Vexing Dodger Unchained Rogue. There is some fuzziness on whether you're technically in your opponents square, but it fits the theme of climbing on/around/over/etc. I'd like to incorporate this too as it's a nice class-based way to "stick" to your foe.

So, I have a few different builds floating around in my head, but most place the majority of the time in the Rogue. This character would be joining the game at 5, so I can get away with starter level awkwardness and get all my dips in early. With my current build, mouser 1/ MoMS 2/ Vexer 2+, I'm one level away from dex-to-damage, but that's ok. My main job would be to get in a foe's square and make life super difficult for them while my friends go to town.

Have any of you come up with builds that utilize any of these, or all three? I'd love to see them!

*I recognize that this is probably going to be a sub-optimal/weird/awkward build. That's ok. I'm just looking for maximizing being in a foe's space and seeing just how hard we can push that angle. Some parts of this character, like the swashbuckler's finesse thing and the rogue's overlap a bit. I'm ok with that too. Again, just seeing how far we can push being in a foe's square(s).

Scarab Sages

No worries, man. Character sheets are easy to edit, usually. I'm ok with you changing your mind 500 times before game start!

Scarab Sages

Converted to Heroic array from my 13 point buy. got me a +1 dex and Int for -1 str!

Scarab Sages

Ok. I have the bones of the build pretty set and I'll await your decision!

Scarab Sages

Oh! Misunderstood that intent. I don't want to flaunt your rules, so I'll go bard emphasizing something Bards rarely get to emphasize: KNOWLEDGE! I'm about to know ALL THE THINGS guys, and be in a constant state of near existential panic because of it! :D

That's...uh...two very odd sets. Anyone tried to play a 4 in a stat before?

I have. Cuddles, the Orc Tetori Monk who was given wonderful grappling ability, then promptly hit over the head with the stupid stick. He's great fun in the right group!

Scarab Sages

Here we go!

set 1:

4d6 - 1 ⇒ (1, 5, 2, 5) - 1 = 12
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (2, 6, 2, 1) - 1 = 10
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (1, 2, 6, 2) - 1 = 10
4d6 - 2 ⇒ (5, 3, 3, 2) - 2 = 11
4d6 - 2 ⇒ (5, 2, 5, 5) - 2 = 15
4d6 - 2 ⇒ (2, 4, 3, 6) - 2 = 13

set 2:

4d6 - 1 ⇒ (6, 1, 3, 4) - 1 = 13
4d6 - 3 ⇒ (4, 3, 3, 4) - 3 = 11
4d6 - 3 ⇒ (4, 3, 6, 4) - 3 = 14
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (5, 4, 1, 2) - 1 = 11
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (2, 1, 3, 4) - 1 = 9
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (6, 1, 5, 1) - 1 = 12

Well. Ok. This guy is almost painfully average.
Going with Investigator. Let's see... Set 1. Mr. Average McAveragepants coming up!

Scarab Sages

But only because we're not getting them from Walmart. We're probably not getting them from the lowest government bidder either, in that case. Which means we have a quartermaster who is actually a Demigod of Logistics in disguise.

Scarab Sages

I have an idea for a VERY unorthodox gladiator. I'll post it up when I get a moment.

4d6 - 2 ⇒ (3, 5, 6, 2) - 2 = 14
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (3, 5, 1, 6) - 1 = 14
4d6 - 3 ⇒ (4, 5, 3, 3) - 3 = 12
4d6 - 2 ⇒ (4, 2, 2, 4) - 2 = 10
4d6 - 3 ⇒ (3, 3, 4, 3) - 3 = 10
4d6 - 2 ⇒ (2, 2, 2, 2) - 2 = 6
Oh. That's bad. 6pts? One more time?

4d6 - 2 ⇒ (5, 2, 5, 5) - 2 = 15
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (5, 5, 1, 2) - 1 = 12
4d6 - 2 ⇒ (6, 3, 6, 2) - 2 = 15
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (3, 4, 2, 1) - 1 = 9
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (4, 3, 1, 1) - 1 = 8
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (1, 4, 4, 3) - 1 = 11

... *sigh* 11 pts? I think I can make it work with that. Did I see something about a point buy? Or should I roll again? Or do I just need to go with it.

Scarab Sages

Well, the primary casters (and expressly magical stuffs in general) are inaccessible because of our "side" being the non-magical side.

Scarab Sages

Ok. No worries. Not trying to rush you. Just, as I said, poking. :)

Scarab Sages

Poke?

Scarab Sages

The Mad Mage Halaster approves of this message. :D

Scarab Sages

Interesting question. That will depend on the characters you pick, I think. Or vice versa. You could have the hole/portal/neverland door/whatever come out... anywhere. For mine, somewhere with some kind of civilization nearby would be nice. Other concepts I see floating around would be happy in the middle of absolutely nowhere. Others would die.

I suggest you decide the environment before selecting characters and let us know so we don't build something completely unsuited to the game you want to run. :)

Scarab Sages

I cannot afford access to the materials, so I'll drop out. Have fun!
