Subject: RL

Due to some RL issues, I will be placing all my games on haitus. My best guess would be March before I can return. I apologizes to all my players but it can not be helped.

Topic: Pathfinder?
Subject: hello

Hello Kelevra. Welcome to the inn. I am one of the admins on this site and we always love to see new people.

The site has numerous forums for discussing topics and playing on-line PbP games. We do not have a specific forum to discuss pathfinder or 4e but feel free to start a thread on such a topic.

I am a old school 1e/2e D&D myself though I have heard some good things about pathfinder. What do you like about that rpg?

Why worry about death if you have four sons you can play after and then their kids. Like Paranoia with the clones.

Topic: Audalis Dreaming QnA
Subject: a few notes, warnings and addendums

Just a few things for those who have not gamed with me.

Healing - I use a % system for healing so a cure light heal 25% and cure serious 50% etc etc. However, for low levels I have a minimum amount healed (or else the spell sucks) which is 8 hp for a CLW. So if you have 20 hp and take 10 and get a CLW, 25% would be only 5 hp back but you would get 8 as it is the minimum.

Combat - When you post combat movement, please be specific as possible and give me more than one round of action, otherwise combat takes a long time. So "Bob attacks with bow as long as he can then will draw long sword and attack, favouring the biggest and baddest that he can see". Make use of PM or the QnA if you want to, I don't mind communication - I thrive on it.

Death - You may go to negative 10 plus your constitution bonus. After that you are toast.

Posting - Once a week is expected. if you can;t post due to RL, just let me know and I will NPC your character for awhile. However if it is more than two weeks, don't be surprised if you wake up in a gin soaked bed in a god-forsaken inn with a woman named Lola. Ask Olan about his knight who was possessed by a randy she-demon for awhile.

Mana - Mana is used to cast spells with one point for a 1st level spell, 2 for a second etc etc. If you run out of mana, yo ucan still cast spells but you use HP. HP lost can not be healed, only regained by one hour sleep per hp used as MP. Clerics do not use mana.

Cleric spells - I do not restrict clerics by spheres of influence and domains. you may cast any spell in the PHB as per the level.

Weapon Specialization - If you have a 2 in brackets beside a weapon on your sheet, that means you have specialization in that weapon. The way I do WS, is 1 is proficient, 2 is +1/+1, 3 is +2/+2 and 4 is +3/+3 which is as high as you go. However, as soon as you put 2 in, you go up a half attack per round or one full if bow.

Topic: Audalis Dreaming
Subject: on the road again, just can't wait to be back on the road again

Crow listened to the people around him to see if he could discern anything more of this mayor and his offer. The people seemed to accept that the offer was genuine and there was no scoffing or distrust being brought up in his ear shot. That was saying something in itself because The Pardinese love to make fun of their lords and rulers as much as they loved drinking that salty swill they call beer. However the opportunity to hear more was lost when the Khord cleric made his announcement.

"I Be Gamard the Grim!

"We fought these devils and barely made it here alive!

"But I be a Knight of The Holy Avengers ... and I will help track down this vermin ... exterminate these devils ... and return with the head of their leader ... in the company of those brave enough to company to hell and back ... with a Cleric of Solanis!

"So I say to One and All ... Cruniak Beware!"

After that there was an explosion of cheers, hollers and suggestions that Gamard was buying a round for the house as he was about to become rich. You conversed among yourselves, noting the few groups making for the doors and making a fast exit, while others stayed and watched you with a wary eye. The evening became quite festive indeed when the Cleric stared his War Dance. Soon may of the locals were joining in the celebration, even if they had no idea what the party was for – another quaint Pardinal tradition.

"Heads Will Roll ... and Bodies Will Die!

"It May Be You ... It May Be I ... But Know This Truth ... Cruniak Will Die ... Not I ... Not I ... So I Bid You Good Bye!

"Run To Your Fate ... We Will Follow Soon ... Cruniak Are Waiting ... To Seal Your Doom!"

The evening ran its course and the hour became late. You return to your rooms for the night to get some sleep before the morning but in agreement that you would met up in the morning and prepare for your journey. Crow’s many attempt to woo the red-hair bar-maid were fended off and he, like the rest of you returned to your beds alone.

The sun came up the next day and the sky was clear. The crispness of the morning held a hint of the fading of this summer to fall. But today, the weather promised to be warm but the mid-day.

Everyone is up and awake. Your horses and ponies – a gift from the merchants although they had spares from all that fell during the caravan, are awaiting you in the stables. Talon figures that he will be able to find traces of the Cruniak by late afternoon if you ride swiftly.

OOC: If anyone wants to buy supplies, let me know. You may back post conversation from the evening if you wish. Otherwise my next post will have you on the road.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: yea and no

Yes you are correct that there are emergency lights set up to come on in the case of power outage. They do run on battery power.

However, in this instance, the backup emergency lights are out as well and will be out for a few minutes.

There is a reason. Some of the crew will know why.

Subject: Last Crusade

In Indiana jones and the Last crusade, the show indy pouring the holy Grail directly into his dad's wound. As well, there is a series of books based on D&D characters where healing Draughts were used directly on the wounds.

So I think you have a legal precedent there Rob.

Been delayed on the PM's but RPN reaction was prefect for his character. One thing about the emergency lights is they do not come on immediately. All electrical systems are dead and the back up do not come on for five minutes.

Topic: Are you ready for 5e? Do you care?
Subject: Ah basic!

I forgotten about the basic set. Dwarf, fighter, wizard, elf, cleric and thief were your classes. The stripped down simple combat system and only two levels of spells. I have a player who still thinks magic missiles are d6 because he started in basic.

Topic: Are you ready for 5e? Do you care?
Subject: I'd settle for

A well written game system with clearly defined rules that are easy to learn, play and lend themselves to role-playing and not roll-play. You should only need three book max to play the game, with lots more as extras (I'll buy them out of curiosity, I promise!).

I'm asking too much aren't I?

Subject: Are you ready for 5e? Do you care?

Forbes article on 5e coming

So the Wizzies are looking at 5th edition D&D. The Accountants of the Coast must have realized they spent all their cash on exorcising Gary's ghost from the basement and decided to make everyone buy the rules yet again.\

But my cynical views aside, what do you think of a 5e? Playtesters are suggesting it will be more retro and playable (that would be 2e but I'm bias).

So how would you redesign the D&D rules? What are you thoughts on the matter? Come out Come out all you old school, new school and I don't know what school players and give your opinions please.

I am looking at this as the Dungeon romp type game. Therefore you will leave, you will have one random encounter and then you will arrive at the entrance to the lair. Don't sweat the details.

The Ranger has tracking as an ability but so does Crow. You listed it among your NWP Tann. So you are doubly blessed.
