@Lanliss you are correct... blasted INT!! Also, I put your info in the game play section.

Map of the Area

Barnabus safely cast Mirror Image and suddenly before everyones eyes there are five versions of Barnabus wielding an axe looking ready to strike.

The eagle uses its claws as death from above. The creature that had used Smite Evil against the skeleton seems to be fully effective against it. The armored skeleton is looking worse for wear.

As Lanliss goads the skeleton and a wave of positive energy flows from him, everyone can see the bones within the armor begin to glow a bright white. Looking closely the symbol of Desna begins to appear on those bones and with a thunder clap they shatter. The bones turned to dust and the Full Plate armor and Longsword fall to the ground and clatter down the stairs and land at Bozvrig’s feet.

The dust settles and everyone looks around at the party covered in rotting flesh and bone dust.

Will Save: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 3 = 5

@Lanliss unfortunately the magical +1 would not have mattered.

Anyone besides Barnabus can give me a K-Religion roll on the skeleton. Barnabus tried but failed.

So the above to post deserves some explanation. I recruited for a module and the Reign of Winter AP a few weeks ago. I found out that my father needed to go in to have an out patient procedure done because he was feeling light headed and dizzy when going up/down the stairs. We found out that he needed to get some stents in, and a few days after the stents my sister took him to the ER because of issues he was having due to the two procedures.

In the mess of the above I completely feel off the fact of the earth on all my games, except this one. I left them hanging which there is no excuse for.

I am an advocate of real life takes priority and to let people know what was going on, but I failed to do so. Bad on my end.

My dad is better, he will have to go in at the end of this month for a few things, but nothing unexpected like he had to before.

I wanted to apologize to you guys for letting my slacking elsewhere fall into our game.

I appreciate all of your kind words. Things are ok with my dad. He dodged a bullet so to speak. Things are settling down with his new normal of life, and so are we. Thank you for the time, and I am extremely sorry disappearing like I did.

Hey all! Sorry for the delay. I am getting everything together for the “Beyond” portion of this game. I will have your first post come out tomorrow morning for an official kick off. I am looking forward to this game!

Also, just checking if everyone is still good to go. And if there are any last minute changes you’d like to make go ahead and let me know. One last thing, I play that if it is not on your character sheet then you don’t have it. Please keep your character sheets up to date and if you need to buy anything with your remaining gold please do so.

Looking forward to getting the ball rolling on this one! Its going to be fun!!

Hey everyone! I had a conference this past weekend so I am a day behind where I wanted to be. I will have everything good to go to start in the next day or so.

@Selkyon great question that I should have touched on. We will not be using traits/drawbacks. I only use traits when it comes to APs because they are easy ways to pull characters into the whole story.

@AdamWarnock since this is such an old module I think it would be hard to find active PBP board people who haven’t at least started it. Like with any game that we are playing for the second time I would hope everyone would keep player and character knowledge separate.

Hey all. Sorry about my absence. Monday/Tuesday my wife and I received some possibly terrifying news about our baby’s last ultrasound and we needed to go into see a specialist about it for a more thorough ultrasound. I basically checkout of life for these past few days dreading what it could be. Our ultrasound was this morning and we found out that all is well with the baby and my wife. They aren’t sure what it was that they saw or if it was an error with the machine or reader... that stuff is above my pay grade.

Regardless, all is well and we can continue on.

+1 to Lanliss’s next roll. You are correct.

Yesterday in the states was Veterans Day. I don’t know if anyone here is a Veteran or even currently serving, but just incase. Thank you for your service.

Everything plays out as it did. What is everyone doing? Brunner is now up and only down 9 hit points.

@Dalron hey man, at least you can say you were consistent this battle.... sorry.... *insert evil laugh*

Welcome all!

I have been lurking around the recruitment page for a bit now wishing I could get into a Kingmaker game but I have been finding that I have been coming up short. Either just missing it or not having a concept/build that would gel with what has already been presented. Because of that, I have decided to run the Kingmaker AP!

I know it is an older and popular AP, but I would love to run this for people who might not have had a chance to play before. I know as gamers there is a lot of knowledge that we keep separate from Player and Character, but not having played this AP before would be better.

The cut off for applications will end Monday August 20th by noon central time. This will give interested parties one week to full flesh out their characters.

Expectations:

What I expect from myself is a minimum of one post a day. I would also expect this from you. If you are not able to keep this commitment, maybe this one is not for you. I do realize that real life does happen and will make exceptions, but please personally PM me or let the group know via the discussion page.

Not that this needs to be stated, but I expect that everyone will be kind and courteous to one another. This should be a place where we can all just relax and have fun, its what games are for correct?

Character Concepts:

What I like to see on your character sheet is your background. You are, after all, NOT a level 1 commoner.

-How did you become a fighter, where did that training come from?
-From what sect did your druid come from, and who was her elder?
-Where and when did your cleric receive his call to follow Sarenrae?
-What makes your character tick, what drives him/her?
-Do they have any vices/phobias/quirks?
-What do they like and dislike?
-Three words that describes their personality.
-I would also like a physical description of the character. This way each of us can have an idea of what the others look like in our theaters of the mind.

Character Creation:

I am a DM that loves the simplicity of CORE games. Not needed to find what are the best feats that feed off of each other, what racial trait works the best with class feature X, etc..

Being Core Only, If it is not in the core players guide then it does not exist. Spells, feats, equipment, etc. Core classes and races only.

Link to find CRB reference guide.

- 15 Point Buy: I do allow people to sack stats, but please play your character according to their stats.
- Starting Gold: Max class gold at 1st level. I play by the rule of if it is not on your character sheet, then you do not have it. Before starting I give everyone a double check to make sure they are fully ready to start.
- HP: Max HP at first, roll for HP every level beyond that. I do allow people to re-roll the 1st natural once per level, but if you get two in a row then it was destined to be.
- I do keep in mind aging effect, if you would like to play an middle aged or old character, more power to you! But please add in those bonuses/penalties
- I do allow any alignment except evil for obvious reasons.
- Favorite Class Features: I allow the extra hit point, skill, or racial features for the favorite class.
- Traits: Everyone get one trait from the campaign. Link to campaign traits
- Also be sure to be familiar with the players guide. It will give you insights and tips on character creation, classes, and races. It also has the campaign traits within it. Link to Players Guide

Mechanical Stuff:

Initiative: When we come to combat I will roll everyones initiative publicly and keep an active tracker. If two PCs go, then a bugbear, then the three remaining PCs, I will have the first two act in tandem so they don’t need to wait for the other, then the bugbear, then the final three can go all at once. If there is someone who is lagging behind, I will take authority to do the most likely action for that player. This will only be in cases lasting longer than a day.

Mapping the Battlefield: I will do my best to describe the scene and actions, but unless players absolutely need something drawn out I will not be mapping it out. During combat I would love people to be descriptive of what actions they are taking. Don’t just give me an attack roll and damage roll and say your character swings his/her sword.

Skill Checks: There will be some skill checks that I will be rolling separate on the side. Things like passive perception checks for hidden things, sense motive checks, some diplomacy/intimidate/bluff checks. When it comes to social skills there are two deciding factors for me as a DM, how it is roleplayed and how the roll plays out. I am not going to penalize a player for rolling a 1 diplomacy check when they knocked it out of the park, but I am also not going to penalize the player who isn’t the most eloquent with words (me) when they rolled a natural 20 on diplomacy.

Spoiler Boxes: Not that this needs to be said, but when I put a spoiler box please resist reading it unless you make the DC that is stated, have the language that is being spoken, or are the person it is written for.

I look forward to running this game and getting to know the players selected along the way. Please be sure that you have read everything within this posting before submitting your character (Crunch & Background) for the selection process.

Well.... lol. I thought it was only SU that didn’t. Well that could have been interesting. What follows is what REALLY happens then.

Inside of the Inn
Ian begins to get food and drink for those who asked for it. “It’s 2 gold a night, but that includes your meals and the boarding of your horses and any carts you brought for your deliveries. I have a stable hand out there all day and night, so that you don’t need to worry about anything going missing. We don’t have much crime in Kingsholm. So the four of you and one more outside still, that will be 15 gold a day.”

Thom places a few bowls of stew and mugs of ale ontop of the bar for those who asked. Turning towards Dalron, Ian continues. “The General Store opens up in the morning. Hergon generally stops off in here for breakfast in the morning just before sun up. I am sure you could catch him then, or if you sleep in he will be at his shop then.”

Lanliss & Thom in the stables
At the mention of a dragon Thom stops eating his apple and raises an eyebrow. “You saw a dragon? That’s amazing. Are you all adventurers? Man oh man, what is life like out on the road? I can only dream about it...

@Lanliss Nothing else comes from the ring. Between you and Barnabus, you found out all you could currently.

@Brunner I gave the next “hook” in what Sten said to Dalron. And correct, you all don’t have the gold to enhance your equipment. You have a day until the party’s bows are completed. We are doing modules, but I always give people enough time to do what they’d like for a more “sandbox” feel.

Between the two the stats are the same. The only difference is that the warhammer is B and the wasaxe is S

Hey, sorry about the delay. I had that response typed up right after Brunner posted his and I went to submit it and got the “maintenance” screen.... ugh! So I had to wait till after youth group tonight.

In most games I play everyone at one point or another during the night takes watch, that is when I usually have mine pray/meditate. Unless they are on a solo watch, then it would need to happen first thing in the morning.

@Dalron Northfield Hey don’t sweat it, the little format things are really easy to pick up on. So for me the “How to format your text” button doesn’t work, so I’ll type out all the ones I know.

Format:
all { } you see, replace with [ ]
Bold {b}Text Here {/b}
Italicized {i}Text Here {/i}
Faint blue text for out of character talk {ooc} Text Here {/ooc}
Dice rolls {dice=Attack Roll} 1d20+4 {/dice}
Attack Roll: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (17) + 4 = 21
A spoiler box like this {spoiler=Text Here} secret message {/spoiler}
Making text smaller {smaller} Text Here {/smaller}

That is all I know off the top of my head. Hope it helps.

Applicants
Grungar Broginslag - Dwarven Druid
Brunner Hammefell - Dwarven Paladin of Torag
Colt R. Warwick - Human Dueling Fighter
Lanliss Endarro - Elven Cleric of Desna
Scarlet Blood - Human Rogue
Dalron Northfield - Human Ranger

Hello All!

It seems I cannot get enough of GM/playing, and I would like to run something for my wife.

Last week I ran a small dungeon crawl for my wife and she liked it. This was her first experience of D&D/Pathfinder. She is interested in playing but due to the fact that we have a 8 month old we cannot have the whole gang over, and we cannot both go out for a gaming night over at the gaming house.

So, I will be running something for her. I am thinking of running an AP for her, or possibly doing single modules and stringing them together.

Focusing on the AP side of my search, I was wondering what everyones thoughts were on which would be the best AP to solo? I did a little looking and the last question I found on this topic was from 2011, and a few new APs have been out since then.

The only stipulation I have is this cannot include APs that our group is currently playing. This would exclude Kingmaker, and Reign of Winter. I wouldn't mind an AP that is still in print to make it easy to acquire.

Thank you for any help in this.

Hello. I am playing with a group that is starting Kingmaker. I am interesting in doing an Item Creation Wizard. Starting off I am thinking about using the Universal School with the Arcane Crafter Sub because of the Metacharge ability

Metacharge Ability:

Metacharge (Ex)

As an Arcane crafter, you gain a bonus feat at 3rd level, which must be an item creation feat or metamagic feat. You must still meet all prerequisites for a bonus feat, including caster level minimums. When using metamagic feats to create magic items, your skill and understanding of the principles involved in the item’s creation give you a +2 bonus on the skill check made to create the item.

I am also looking to go with a Valet Familiar Archetype due to the Cooperative Crafting ability, and the other bonuses it receives. I really wish there was a Familiar that gave a bonus to Spellcraft. Going with a Thrush for my Familiar.

Cooperative Crafting:
Prerequisites: 1 rank in any Craft skill, any item creation feat.

Benefit: You can assist another character in crafting mundane and magical items. You must both possess the relevant Craft skill or item creation feat, but either one of you can fulfill any other prerequisites for crafting the item. You provide a +2 circumstance bonus on any Craft or Spellcraft checks related to making an item, and your assistance doubles the gp value of items that can be crafted each day.

I was wondering if anyone has had experience playing an Item Creation Wizard, and if these options are worth it. I am looking to play a dwarf (I know unleash the hate for no +INT) and its 25 point buy, so I am not sweating the no plus to INT.

25 Point Stat Block w/Dwarf:

Str: 8
Dex: 16
Con: 14
Int: 18
Wis: 10
Cha: 7

If you have any advice for a Item Creation Wizard let me know.
