    Yeah, that hadn't actually occurred to me until I read this. Thanks a lot. I knew we should have gone back to Kai Kin and dropped three or four earthquakes on the temple complex. We didn't, though, because aside from neutral-and-pragmatic Morningstar we want to be the heroes. Becoming city-leveling bullies isn't really our thing.

    LightPhoenix, for what it's worth, in the round where both Aravis and Greywolf died I thought we might have a TPK on our hands. Plenty challenged!

    City-Leveling Bullies sounds a lot meaner than Spire Guard, that's for sure.
    Still excited about 4th edition!

    We played tonight. Sagiro is a giant rat bastard, roles are reversed, Dranko's normal combat style has definitely been torn out of a rut, it is in fact possible to hate Meledien even more than I previously did, the term "meat-shield" can sometimes become quite terrifyingly literal, never throw out your old magic items, and - possibly for the first time in years - Dranko is looking at death. Justifiably so.

    Rat. Bastard.

    Wouldn't it technically be 'advanced' into a dire rat bastard? Though I don't recall seeing a DM advancement table in the DMG

    No clue. I tried to explain my lack of cohesion with "geeking out" and my phone changed the word. I can neither preview nor edit my posts, either; my browser crashes and I lose the message. So I corrected myself in a later post.

    Games like Sepulchrave II's are interesting as a diversion, but unless everyone is on the ball, or some folks get plot armor, it quickly becomes a no-fun endeavor. I'm going to attack an advanced Vecna (I have 48 hitdice, and redundant caster levels) and while there's an in-game reason for it, I'm kinda hoping my character will die. It's surreal.

    I am, as ever, interested in seeing how the story hour here pans out. Abernathy's company are quite a fine crew, and engaging- this is the only SH I've read where I care about the story several times more than the metagame. I don't care what Dranko's exact HP total is; I care that he's still alive. That's rare to find online.

    Son of a monkey! Sagiro was a designer on Thief, so I think that's "my" Dranko! I had no idea.

    And E.N. Publishing killed Emperor Drakus Coaltongue in the prologue of War of the Burning Sky. Man can't catch a break.

    The most cinematic adventure path for 4th Edition and Pathfinder.

    The final adventure is now available - Avatar of Revolution! As the grinding gears of the Gyre draw the world toward its oblivion, people of every nation, culture, and creed yearn for liberation. The villains need only complete a ritual at Axis Island to impose a thousand years of perfect obedience, but civilization has seen and rejected the future they offer. Though it may be their doom, they choose revolution. For Pathfinder and D&D 4e.
