Well, the 15th was a bust due to French Quarter fest, so we're giving this another go this Sunday the 29th. Link above is still relevant. I hope to see a good turnout.

I agree with Chris, City of Strangers I and II are a lot of fun to roleplay and I don't remember the combats being too bad. Many have said the First Steps mods and I agree. I don't think they're intended just for new players, but new GMs should be able to enjoy those as well.

Thanks man.

Running up to 2 tables of To Delve the Dungeon Deep, the second part of the intro trilogy. If you're available, come on out and play!

Truly epic Rune Giant. Thumbs down to randomization, though.

Go4 Games in Metairie will be hosting a gameday this Sunday, the 25th. We'll have up to two tables of In Service to Lore and the plan is to continue through the introductory trilogy. I'll post some links later for signup and information. Feel free to email me at onemanpowertrip @gmail. Com if you have questions or concerns.


1. I've DM'd and played in PbP games. Paizo and plothook.net are the wheres.

2. I'm in the central time zone, in New Orleans.

3. I can post at least once a day.

Character
1. Nicholas Shenevar, AKA The Chain Street Choker, Hands, Poppa Grip
Human mid-fifties male, Nick is a large man known for his big paws and his method of murder, strangulation. Nick is a frequent hire for when a particularly nasty message needs to be sent. Nick would be a monk/rogue mix with the martial artist archetype.

2. Nearly 7 feet of trouble, Nick dresses in plain clothing. His hair crept into white and he keeps it close-cropped and neat. He's quiet and never showy, Mitra only knows where he spends all of his coin. It's kind of a moot point now that he's rotting in a cell, though.

3. Nick is low-key and not afraid to throw the first punch in a fight. In fact, he has a tendency to do so, knowing that it's usually the guy who hits first that ends up walking away from a scrap.

Kitsune rogue or fighter, basing it off of one of my favorite villains: Don Carnage of Tailspin fame.


I'm disappointed that the Snowcaster elves weren't talked about at all. Looking for information on them, I would look in two places: here and in the Inner Sea World Guide. I would find the briefest mention in both places.


Name: Tiffany
Race: Human
Classes/levels: Ranger 9
Adventure: Varnhold Vanishing
Location: Vordakai's Tomb

Name: Xavier
Race: Human
Classes/levels: Paladin 9
Adventure: Varnhold Vanishing
Location: Vordakai's Tomb

Name: Meric
Race: Human
Classes/levels: Diviner 9
Adventure: Varnhold Vanishing
Location: Vordakai's Tomb

Name: Caysen
Race: Human
Classes/levels: Bard 9
Adventure: Varnhold Vanishing
Location: Vordakai's Tomb

Name: Gorna and Creampuff
Race: Human
Classes/levels: Druid 9, Python
Adventure: Varnhold Vanishing
Location: Vordakai's Tomb

Name: Some cohort
Race: Human
Classes/levels: Cleric 7
Adventure: Varnhold Vanishing
Location: Vordakai's Tomb

Gory Details: The adventurers entered the tomb unprepared for the combat to come, and were overconfident from their dealings with Cephal Lorentus, the dread zombie wizard, and the dread zombie cyclopes they encountered. When they finally came face to face with Vordakai and his guardian, the grave knight, the conflict was a short one. Xavier was the first to fall, thanks to a 91 point greataxe crit that split him skull to stomach. With a collective gasp, the party tried to recover, doing a great job of circumventing Vordakai's immunities and interrupting spell casting. The Graveknight, however, was unable to be controlled, and he went on to murder Tiffany, the next closest person. The party attempted an immediate escape, using Dimension Door to escape to the cliffside they entered from. This left only companions, which were quickly dispatched. The heroes took a breath, recovering a bit of strength, then, "Is that that raven again?" Vordakai took the same time to recover, and appeared with his graveknight in the same flash of magic the heroes used. The ancient lich couldn't let these meddlers escape to spread tales of his coming! The heroes flew away through magic, but were tracked down yet again and destroyed. The ultimate fate of the kingdom remains, to this day, a mystery.


I should contribute the tale of my party's defeat to the thread, as my last act of DMing this path.
Name: Tiffany
Race: Human male (his mom wanted a girl)
Classes/levels: Ranger (I forget what level, 6ish)
Adventure: Rivers Run Red
Location: The Ruined Keep
The Gory Details: The characters were on the trail of an infamous fey, Spring-Heeled Jack, a bogeyman even to its kin. The wicked creature stole the babe of Oleg and Svetlana Leveton from its crib, and offered it as a token of love to The Dancing Lady of the Tower. Jack was long gone by now, but The Lady was still present in her tower, singing to her newly-acquired child. After seeing the Quickling updated in Bestiary 2, I decided to tweak it around some more, giving it levels as Vivisectionist instead of Rogue, the former being an Alchemist archetype with Sneak Attack. Tiffany attempted to climb up from outside the tower, attacking from the window while his companions frantically battled within. The Quickling, with Spider Climb and Sneak Attack, incapacitated the Ranger with poison, and Tiffany died from the fall that followed. Tiffany was recovered and Raised, and the party ultimately defeated the Dancing Lady. The Quickling was the sole survivor of the tower, and went on to join the Monster Kingdom growing in the South.

Thirdly, I hope "something bad happens to Ameiko" isn't getting to be the recurring theme for every module. I can see many groups turning on the character if she's reduced to the eternal damsel in distress.

Every group needs an Aquaman.


Man, I'm Conan'ing this whole thing in my mind right now. My group just passed the DM torch from me

Spoiler:
Kingmaker, tpk @ Vordakai
to a buddy
Spoiler:
Some kind of shipwreck/harrowstone amalgamation
so I don't have a group to try it on, but I think this could be truly epic.

Spoiler:
The heir to the throne of Khitai, demonic wizards, a journey to frosty Hyperboria...


Your players sound hardheaded.
Option 1: Let the dice fall. Sometimes the good guys lose. Maybe they'll get the miracle they're hoping for.

Option 2: If the group (including you as DM) is attached to the characters being played and want to live, but still have a big loss, you can go the route of Hargulka's Monster Kingdom. Make Hargulka more intelligent than is written in the story, give him a taste for empire, and when they defeat the PCs, he can hold them as hostages until they sign a terrible treaty, then a few days after. A copy can be sent north to Restov to make sure that the treaty is recognized, and can include things like slave labor, handing over any kobolds they've befriended at that point, and making the PCs work for them. Don't be afraid to get your DM mallet and bang away at this. This is a LOT of extra work outside the scope of the adventure. Be sure to check the thread by DM Dudemeister for more info on the monster kingdom. I think it's almost canon by now.

Option 3: Fling dice, tell your players you hate them, and go watch a movie. Afterward, tell them you forgive them for ruining your game and are prepared to bestow upon them a redo.

For my group, I would go with Option 1, then make one of my players DM. See how he likes it.


I would so get into these if the original rules were available. I think my search begins!


These are heavily based on the Monsternomicon stats, which I thank you again for referring me to. Feedback appreciated!

The fact that the Harrier is in Monsternomicon is another way to slap myself for not having it. That's awesome, thanks for reprinting it here. For the AC while CR 3, I was thinking of 15, with 2 being from natural armor. That will probably go to 17 at CR 5, still easy to hit but packing a bad punch.

For the hit points, I don't know what I was thinking. Good catch.

So, using the Harrier as a model, I could say a Shredder only has a bite, which would be the same damage (2d6). I can keep the frenzy, get rid of snacking and just keep the baseline Fast Healing.

I think I'd rather keep it as a Dragon type, though. It has Dragon-blood in it, I'll look at the type descriptions more closely.

The Stinger is a little more complicated, I was thinking a 2d6 breath weapon with a sting attack and poison, then some weak talons for after the stinger breaks off. I know they have no sense of self-preservation, but I think PCs would feel cheated if a CR 5 monster had only one melee attack, then it was left with just breath weapons. Maybe "in the wild" they would gravitate toward Shredders for packs.

Thanks again for the feedback, I'll work on it some more and come back.


I wanted to get some feedback on this, if possible. I'm converting the Legion beasts to throw into a Pathfinder game. I started with the Shredder, and the other 2 lessers will be the same CR and similar in build. Thanks.

The base forms of the eidolons presented are all Medium, but a Summoner can choose to make his eidolon size small if he'd like. What if a size Large (or larger) creature took levels in Summoner? Would they be stuck with a size Medium Eidolon until 8th level?

Wait, it sounds like title for TV series with two main characters...

Nice.


First, I'd like to see a bare-chested pirate queen straight from the pages of Conan.

As far as guns go, I'm sure they'll make a strong appearance. In the Inner Sea World Guide, the writeup on The Shackles is a good spot to get a taste of what's on its way. The Hurricane King Kerdak Bonefist has a magical pistol and his ship is fully outfitted with cannons.

Other crews of note: A druid and his giant squid captain the Kraken. The Blood Moon is a ship full of werewolves. I really can't wait to see what's next, and I suspect (and hope) to see an appearance by Aboleths.


This sounds fun. Im rolling up a newspaper and swatting faces if the pirate accent shows its face at my table though. Im hoping less jack sparrow more George R R Martins Iron Isles. Make way for the drowned god! We do not sow.


This is coming up for my group, great ideas! I plan on using some of this mixed with a few of the new mobs presented in Wake of the Watchers. Thanks again for these, Tem.


I put this together to stop rooting through 40 issues when I'm looking for something. I don't have Rise of the Runelords, and if this makes Paizo angry, feel free to delete. Monsters that were reprinted/updated in Bestiary 2 aren't listed.

I don't know. I guess I don't see where the disconnect is. It's not being picky if you're ready to just hand a soon-to-be-fledgling country's fate to 1st level PCs.


The Swordlords don't really seem to be doing background checks. One of the traits is basically "You get a horse and a charter". Seriously, what's the difference between bandits and secret police? Oleg and Svetlana wouldn't know every single bandit in the Greenbelt, and they wouldn't just broadcast who or what they are unless they're just cartoons.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

So, the Stag Lord's a mean drunk that doesn't like to actually do anything anymore. I think he's probably too apathetic to care about the Thorn River camp not reporting in after a while. Akiros or Dovan might be interested, but more than that, I had a group of bandits figure out what was going on (some escaped) and try a different tactic. They avoided the PCs for a while, then went to Brevoy and got their own charter. Now they threaten to denounce the PCs as bandits, and are playing the "I'm not touching you" game with them. It's turning into a fun situation, where the PCs could always kill the bandits to get rid of them, but without evidence, folks like Oleg and Svetlana might lose respect for them. In their minds it would be cold-blooded murder, just because the PCs didn't like the other group.

Thoughts?

Very interesting. Disappointing that the list doesn't include New Orleans, but understandable given that we don't host many Cons at all here anymore. Stupid fat Katrina. Well, I'm still going to host some events. Thanks for the link, much appreciated.

In New Orleans, there are no Venture Captains or lodges set up as of yet, and I'd like to know if there is any information present on getting that started.


You cut me deep, Shrek. Thanks for the response, I look forward to hearing from you.


I recently submitted a summary and am wondering how long it should take for a response. The last time I submitted something, it took 8 months to get a "no thank you". The open call page says to wait 72 hours before resubmitting, but it doesn't seem like that's a reasonable thing to do (resubmitting every 72 hours if it takes a month to get through an already full inbox). Thank you.

Thanks again for the good time. See you guys at Comicpalooza, hopefully. Did those snail-mail certs get sent out yet?


Edit: Nevermind, the 2PM pacific time is stated in the "Official Rules".

I'm looking for this too. Any info?


Travel light, but it's worth it to bring a book or two. In my experience, people are going to get bored as hell, so you're likely to talk enough people into it to put a group together. Great way to pass the time.


I'll be out of hand until at least Monday. Feel free to npc me.


Dm, I think the group was hoping to get on with the adventure rather than have to take another RP break and interact with Oleg again.


Whatever you'd prefer as DM. I'm okay with bookkeeping or benchmark leveling.


Joe Abercrombie and George R R Martin are both refreshing breaks from the hokey 'prophecied hero' fantasy standard. They're gritty and rough if you have delicate views of violence and abuse, though. Like, really gritty.

R. Scott Bakker is interesting, but isn't for everyone.

Sanderson is great. I loved Mistborn, and when I found that it would become a trilogy I was excited. He wrote a one-shot novel before that, Elantris, and what's great about that one is that you can see him 'stretching his writing muscles' as he gets started with his literary career.

If you're looking for books, a lot of people have already suggested to keep reading, and that's the best advice I can give as well. Don't discount the value of grabbing something random off the shelf. One of the reasons I hate these e-readers I keep seeing is the limited libraries and the lack of 'new book smell'.


That's funny... a game that died because the players played too much... lol.


For marching order, I would suggest either Arianna go first to scout, or have Cale go first to take whatever comes. Sil could be a good candidate to take rearguard. He has a pretty good perception and has more armor than the squishies.


The more we discuss it, the more excited I get. Let's start exploring!!


I like individual initiative for PCs and group init for bad guys. Regarding maps and images, and character sheets, I'd suggest putting the game on plothook. I love Paizo, but plothook's more set up for a PbP game, giving the DM moderator privileges and parent boards. Here's a game I'm running and a game I'm playing in as examples.

Kingmaker (DMing): http://plothook.net/RPG/forumdisplay.php?f=1956
Savage Tide (playing Moby): http://plothook.net/RPG/forumdisplay.php?f=459


If Virgil's going bard, I'll stay melee.


Hey this is Cale. Thanks for picking this up. I'm going to look at changing some things with my character, depending on who else changed to what.


Sorry I had that hiatus there for a while. Just got bogged down a bit. How big is our group right about now?
Virgil
Sil
Cale
Arianna
Zennor
Garyn

That look right? Real life can kick you in the pants sometimes, but we have good players. I'm game for looking for a replacement dm to help out, and if that fails, I think we can still come up with something between us. Don't abandon ship yet!

The GM guide will not be released until June. It should be combined with your next subscription shipment.

Thanks,

Ok thanks.
