I've decided to withdraw from this game. I've been consistently having trouble "getting into" the story, which I originally thought had to do with having not started from the beginning, but as time goes on it doesn't seem to be changing. Maybe just a mismatch of communication styles or something? I'm not sure, but in any case, I'm basically feeling entirely detached and uninvested, and just going through the motions. My spot would be better filled by somebody else, and this spot where you're leveling seems as good a point as any to bring in a replacement. Thanks for giving me a shot, and I hope the campaign continues to provide lots of satisfaction for the rest of you.

CON: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (7) + 4 = 11

Confused, Korgan will start trying to knock people out in an attempt to settle things down nonlethally.

Longsword 2H: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (14) + 6 = 20, Damage: 1d10 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7
Second Wind: 1d10 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2

And I don't know how horror works, but here's a d20 roll:
1d20 ⇒ 10


Init +2 | HP 10/26 | AC 17(19) | S+6/D+2/C+4/I+1/W+0/C+3 | Perc +0 | 2Wnd: 1 | Spells(1st): 1/2 | HD: d10 (1/1) d8 (2/2) | Insp: [ ]

Feeling a little lost in the current combat. I'm having trouble following what round it is, whose turn it is, when things are happening, etc.

"Okay, right back to nothing making sense."

Korgan then frantically slashes at his nearest opponent.

Longsword 2H: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (13) + 6 = 19, Damage: 1d10 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

Again, if I get hit by an enemy I can see, I'll use my reaction to cast hellish rebuke and deal 2d10 ⇒ (2, 1) = 3 fire damage to them (DC 13 DEX for half).

"Finally, something that makes sense," Korgan grumbles as he approaches the treacherous investigator, sword drawn.

Longsword 2H: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (10) + 6 = 16, Damage: 1d10 + 4 ⇒ (4) + 4 = 8

If an enemy I can see within 60ft hits me this turn, I'll cast hellish rebuke as a Reaction to deal them 2d10 ⇒ (6, 2) = 8 fire damage (DEX DC 13 for half).


Init +2 | HP 10/26 | AC 17(19) | S+6/D+2/C+4/I+1/W+0/C+3 | Perc +0 | 2Wnd: 1 | Spells(1st): 1/2 | HD: d10 (1/1) d8 (2/2) | Insp: [ ]

I'd be interested in those gauntlets, if nobody else needs them.

I'll go for a pair of those potions. What do the gauntlets do?

If I may, I'd like to offer a suggestion:

At a real table, saying something like "everyone roll Perception" works great, because you're done in less than a minute. But in PbP, it means the whole game halts until every single player has had a chance to post. What I typically do in PbPs that I run is to either roll everybody's checks myself and then describe the results (thus losing no momentum whatsoever), or else put the information in spoiler labeled something like "Perception DC 13" so that people who succeed on the check can see and respond to the information without having to wait for everyone else and the GM to resolve everything.

I've had lots of success with these methods in my games, so I thought I'd share the ideas in case you'd like to try them. :)

At the Ambush Point -

Dunstan, Korgan, Khalid and Kensignton

"Alien eh? The mainlands are a patchwork of strange lands to be sure. I've not visited them all to be sure but I've hear tales of stepping from one land to another and going from the coldest harshest winter to sweltering desert so I suppose these lands do have some alien qualities to them.

Paridon is without question the most advanced civilization I have been to, most others are quite backwards, even their religions are odd. What is the name of your land again? Perhaps we can find a sage who knows of them".

Korgan opens his mouth to answer, then hesitates pensively before simply saying, "Golarion."

Kensignton makes small talk, "Korgan is it? I find your story intriguing. The land you claim to hail from is not one I have heard of before, tell me, before arriving had you ever before heard of Paridon?"

"Never," Korgan replies. "This whole place is utterly foreign to me, and I say that as someone who's spent his whole life traveling. The very feel of this place is somehow... alien to me."

Korgan shrugs. "I don't really see a better option, so..."

"Yeah, that's probably the best way to handle things."

Yes, but I for one am consistently feeling like I don't have enough information/material to act on in any given direction. Like I'm kind of just hanging there, directionless. I sort of assumed it was because I joined in the middle of things, so I was hoping others would take the lead until I got into the swing of things.

Korgan rolls his eyes.

Korgan follows along with the group, listening closely to everything that's said, still trying to get up to speed with the happenings of this strange place he's found himself in.

Is cold iron even a thing in 5E? Because it sure ain't in the PHB.

EDIT: Also, wow, was it actually totally immune to non-cold-iron attacks? Yikes.

Korgan moves forward in slow motion, taking a swing at the monster with his sword.
Longsword 2H: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (13) + 5 = 18, Damage: 1d10 + 3 ⇒ (5) + 3 = 8

"Which of the three is most skilled with magic? That seems like a relevant detail to me."

"Hey, you're in charge," says Korgan. "Just tell me how I can be of the most help."

"Now now," Korgan says, "I didn't say 'solved', I said 'narrowed down'. Where's Inspector Logan? In the back?"

Korgan points to the door behind the clerk.

Korgan raises an eyebrow. "So..." he says, "I guess that means we've narrowed the list of suspects down to two people. Mind if I do a quick, non-invasive divination on you?"

I can cast detect magic at will, so in the space of a couple of actions I can see if this clerk has any lingering magic on him and if so, what school.

"I'm basically making this up as I go along," Korgan says, shrugging.

"Um, hi," Korgan says, trying to sound confident as he addresses this newest batch of strangers. "We're... here to help...?"

"Yeah, I'm as surprised as you are," Korgan answers. "I've been traveling since I was crawling, so I couldn't really tell you my original ethnicity. I've spent a bit of time in Varisia and Osirion, though; know of them?"

Korgan holds up his hands. "Don't look at me, I just got here."

"I, uh, wha..." Korgan stammers. "I was in Kenabres, wandered into some strange mist, and now I'm here, in a place I don't recognize, surrounded by people who don't look like they're from Kenabres. What's going on here, anyway?"


Init +2 | HP 10/26 | AC 17(19) | S+6/D+2/C+4/I+1/W+0/C+3 | Perc +0 | 2Wnd: 1 | Spells(1st): 1/2 | HD: d10 (1/1) d8 (2/2) | Insp: [ ]

Korgan just stands and blinks, not sure what to make of everything going on around him.

Seeing the woman fall and assessing that things here have been made calm, Korgan says "Excuse me..." and darts into the alleyway, where there still sounds like there's trouble.

When I enter the alley, would I see the other guy climbing up? If so, and if I can get within 120ft of him, I'll fire off an Eldritch Blast.

Eldritch Blast: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6, Force damage: 1d10 ⇒ 6

Korgan visibly winces at his own conflicted feelings as he again tries to knock out the woman with his pommel.

Longsword 2H: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21, Damage: 1d10 + 3 ⇒ (1) + 3 = 4

Unsure what to do, Korgan says, "My apologies if this is wrong, m'lady..." and attempts to bonk the woman over the head with his sword.

Going for a KO rather than a kill if I drop her.

Longsword 2H: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (7) + 5 = 12, Damage: 1d10 + 3 ⇒ (4) + 3 = 7

Ah, okay. That's kind of how I run it, too: I roll everybody's initiative, then "clump" everybody (i.e., if no monsters are going between Alice and Bob, then Alice and Bob effectively have the same initiative), then members of a given clump can act in whatever order.

Seeing everybody listed sequentially made me think you were doing it differently. I'll go ahead and post an action for this turn, then. :)


Init +2 | HP 10/26 | AC 17(19) | S+6/D+2/C+4/I+1/W+0/C+3 | Perc +0 | 2Wnd: 1 | Spells(1st): 1/2 | HD: d10 (1/1) d8 (2/2) | Insp: [ ]

Wait, what? I thought I was waiting my turn. You listed all the combatants sequentially, so I thought that meant I needed to wait to post my action until it got down to me. Am I instead supposed to post asynchronously? Which is fine, just need to know what the expectations are.

Wait, so there's the woman, there's Kensington, and there's some third, unseen attacker?

Ah, so besides the PCs, there's just the woman and this Kensington guy? Is that right? My main concern is just to know what creatures I'm actually seeing here.

I'm a little lost. So Wyatt and I just rushed into this alley. Khalid is up on the roof. Marco, Derrick and Dunstan are in the alley. And then there's a woman, who needle-neck-stabbed "one of the men", but I don't know how many you're talking about. It sort of sounds like two: "the villain" and "Kensington". Seems "the villain" is also being referred to like he's some kind of nonhuman monster, perhaps? Or is that another creature besides "the villain" and "Kensington"? And is there anyone else?

Korgan stands for a moment, stunned, with his mouth agape. Presently, he gives his head a little shake and hurries after the man.

Korgan holds up a pair of placating hands.

"Easy, easy," he says. "My name is Korgan. I was somewhere else, then I saw some kind of canine swordfight, then the fog went 'whoosh', then I was here, then you happened. If you can make any more sense out of that series of events than I have, I'd love to hear it."

I don't know what that means. Maybe... coming over from Golarion? That way I can justify my lack of knowledge about this setting. ;)
