Meh, my players are happy to wait. I've got them and Tiadora stopping off at various wee unsuspecting coastal villages for a spot of.... recreation....

Balentyne has burned. The PC's got there, spent a fortnight plotting, then struck. Killed the troupe of actors and left the desecrated remains on the road to draw out a patrol, then ambushed the patrol. Framed the dwarven Leader for theft, timing it so when the captains came to question him he'd be drunk and argumentative, leading to him quitting and taking his lads with him. Played Eddarly and Mott off against each other(Mott got a critical and beheaded him with the first swing of the duel). Lord Havelyn, the Magister, Mad Martin, Father Donnegan and Captain Barhold all died swiftly while in the radius of Silence spells, while a score of rank and file lay sick from poison in their barracks. Having opened the Gates, our vile villains stood on the bridge of death and took on all comers till Sakkarot and his lads cracked the seal and flooded through to take the defenders from the rear.
Awesome campaign, players are loving it, plotting like loons and cackling randomly.
Can't wait for book two, DEFINITELY buying it.
'Ok guys, I'll disguise self so i look like a street urchin, fling a pebble at the evil priest dude we need to quietly spirit off the streets, when he chases me he'll run past you guys, trip him, knock him out, chuck him in the sack, we'll interrogate him later.'
One of my players has come up with an idea for a weapon which is entirely new as far as I know. He wants a scythe which, with a push of a button/twist of the handle, has the blade extend up and straighten, so it becomes a polearm. The idea being that with Exotic weapon Prof and this weapon, he can use a swift action when he gets charged to suddenly become braced for the charge with the weapon.
Send them to go take out a bandit camp cause they've been hitting caravans, try and set it up so that get ambushed, take out most of the bandits, pursue the remainder only to find that they're from a small village who your BBEG has organised draconian taxes against because he needs something in the area or some such... Good PCs will fight all the harder, and hate him all the more, to redeem themselves... Imagine if a paladin PC chases some bandit through the woods, covered in blood, only to burst into a wee village and find out he just made a bunch of orphans!
And I'm not entirely sure how to work it.
Hey guys, new to the site, new GM. I'm currently running Rise of the Runelords, and we're about to go in to Thistletop, level one. I'm reading ahead, and I honestly can't see the party reaching level 4 when it says they should, so....
