    ...usts his torch at Vhir (AC 2), while another whacks his torch at Duko (AC 4) and a third tries to set Lax aflame (AC 8). Luckily, none strike their targets, and the goblings curse terrible things in their wretched tongue. Benin has disappeared in the confusion. Talashia will have to find him later. Goblin Pyros The goblins have found the cart full of fuel for the sunset bonfire! Stop them before they use it to set nearby buildings aflame! Initiative 22 - Goblins 3 - PCs 0 - Townsfolk Unlike the last battle, the goblins have won initiative. They have hence moved from their starting positions, and I noted their actions. I placed the PCs in an order I found reasonable: Duko & Vhir in front, Devion & Marcus in the middle, and Talashia & Vandalin in the back. Still no coordinates since this battle takes place in the same area. I found it easier to simply use the map from the previous battle rather than re-create it from scratch. But I will include coordinates on the next map. rangerjohn Devion is up kinem Duko is up Mowgli Marcus is up Shayuri Talashia is up Scotley Vandalin is up SelcSilverhand Vhir is up HP & Conditions (X/Y, where X = damage taken and Y = hp total) Goblin 1 - 0/?

    rangerjohn, I apologize for the OP issues. It used to be incredibly stable, but since they updated, it has been less so. Might I inquire as to the exact nature of the issue? Can you log in with any account at all, say were you to create a new one? If so, I would be willing to draw up a new character sheet for you using the information from the old one and just pass control of it to your new account. There is also assistance on the OP Forums for gaining access to your account after the update (it seems that because they use social media-tied login format now there are some issues with old accounts logging in). Have you tried looking there? Or is this more of a "consistently frustrated by attempts to use" sort of issue where you just do not care to even attempt any longer? If the latter, Would you please find someplace to keep a character sheet? If you'd prefer, I'll put up a Rogues Gallery thread. Although I much prefer to track all characters in one place and find OP a convenient way to look u...

    ...e fight, but the look of complete surprise mixed with horror on his face at the grisly scene and all the blood seems to take quite a bit out of his step. Many of the other townsfolk run in circles, moving this way and that in utter confusion while most stand paralyzed with fear, uncertain of what to do. Father Abner, at least, seems to keep his cool, and tries to usher people closer to him, with which he has limited success. By now a cry has gone up for the town guard, but judging by all the screams you are hearing, there is panic in the town both near and far. Could the goblins be elsewhere as well? Through the throng of people, it is difficult to tell whether there are any other goblins in the immediate vicinity. It seems clear that it would be best to deal with these before moving on to investigate further. HP & Conditions Goblin 1 - 17/? DEAD! Goblin 2 - 2/? Goblin 3 - 0/?

    Are you guys eager to get into the action? Or are you enjoying role-playing around town? If the former, we can gloss over the second day in Sandpoint. Just post something to the effect of where your character would like to visit and feel free to role-play minor NPCs (i.e. those not mentioned in the wiki at OP) however you wish during that day. Then I'll proceed directly to the festival. If the latter, we can take another week or two to role-play your interactions around Sandpoint during the second day, i.e. the day before the festival.

"But I'll fetch you some stew and ale right quick. I'll also let Miss Kaijitsu know if you be wantin' a room. I do apologize, I get so worked up about little things. People 'round here call me Forgetful Felsi since I tend to overlook things. But I'll be quick to help you out." Felsi scrambles away, returning a minute later with a mug and a bowl for Talashia. rangerjohn I don't think of Sense Motive as a skill that can generally be used cooperatively. You either know something or you don't, like a Knowledge check or a Perception check. So treat your check as an independent roll. In this case, you were lucky with that natural 20 so Devion knows the information in the sblock. Whether he chooses to share it with the group is up to him.

    rangerjohn, Shayuri, and Scotley, I've contacted the creator of the character sheet on OP to see if he can help with the Bio part. On the other hand, if you have the time, you can attempt to transfer the information over to a new character sheet by first testing the Bio section before fleshing out everything else. That is the only work-around I have come up with so far.

    ...ide. You may also purchase equipment from the original Rise of the Runelords Player's Guide. This option entitles your character to certain character creation benefits but also limits your character to using only the classes, races, feats, spells, and items found in the Core Rulebook. You may still benefit from spells, abilities and items used by allies that do not come from the Core Rulebook, but you may not use or purchase them yourself. If you want a roleplaying rationale, then your character might be a traditionalist who eschews new ways of doing things and distrusts new items and magic. This choice must be made at character creation and may not be changed.

    ...ntaining goods and supplies for the Swallowtail Festival celebrating the opening of Sandpoint's new cathedral, it's chief cargo (and most well-guarded) is a carriage-house whose windows are always draped. Whoever rides in the carriage must be a person of great interest and Foxglove has informed everyone to give it a wide berth unless specifically instructed otherwise. You have yet to catch a glimpse of who rides inside the mysterious carriage-house. On the third night of your journey, you are nearly halfway to Sandpoint and staying at the Rushing Boar Inn when you strike up a conversation with several other individuals who, like yourself, have signed on as mercenaries to protect the caravan. It seems they have interests and ties to Sandpoint themselves, and, among other things, you have begun talking of forming an adventuring company.

    Right now I am awaiting on Shayuri, Mowgli, rangerjohn, and J. Alexander to complete their characters. Shayuri and Mowgli have at least started characters on OP, so I am simply awaiting a request for review; if your character already done and ready for review just let me know here. rangerjohn has accepted the invite to OP, but has yet to post a character. J. Alexander has not sent me an OP screen name or a PM with his email so I have not been able to send him an the invite to OP nor has he posted to this thread since Oct 2. I will give him three days from this post to respond, otherwise the spot will go to SelcSilverhand, assuming he is still interested. If SelcSilverhand is not interested and J. Alexander does not respond, I will re-open recruiting until we get a sixth, but I will start up the IC as soon as the five players who have accepted the invite to OP have completed characters. Scotley and kinem, please respond to your review notes for your characters and make corrections where necessary. So that's an overview of where we ar...

    I've made my final tabulations and a few judgment calls and Rise of the Runelords is the winner. I will be changing the thread title soon to reflect that this is now airwalkrr's RotR OOC thread. For players it was a tough call, but after much deliberation I have selected: Shayuri, kinem, J. Alexander, Mowgli, rangerjohn, and Scotley. Please PM me your email addresses so that I can send you an invite to the Obsidian Portal campaign. SelcSilverhand, having DM'd RotR before, I'd prefer to give those with fresher faces a chance. However, I appreciate your full disclosure and will happy to take you as an alternate should any of the other players bail. I am sure you are all itching to start working on characters, so I have determined the following character creation rules. 1) Ability Scores: 15 Point Buy. Players who opt to use the Core Rulebook only option receive 20 points (see below). 2) Races: Dwarf, Elf, Gnome, Half-Elf, Half-Orc, Halfling, or Human. 3) Classes: Any available at http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/, unless you choose the Core Rulebook only option. 4) Skills and Feats: Any available at http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/, unless you choose the Core Rulebook only option. 5) Equipment: Maximum starting gold.

    I am having a similar issue. When I attempt to log in through the home page, it times out. When I did a search about the issue this page came up. However I still can't access the home page even from this page. Or now that I try it, any other page, on the site. No, that's everyone the last couple of days. Something screwy going on. It's not just you, don't worry.

    Really not liking what I hear about the 5e ranger. So far, the folk hero fighter from the start set and an elven thief both seemed to fit the niche better. I'm hoping having the book in hand will give me a better "solid" on the RANGER, as its my favorite class in any edition (pathfinder excluded). Though I'm not sure what else they can do for the class, and I cant tell if I'm underwhelmed in comparison to all the "toys" the other classes get. I'm not sure what else they can do to make it feel Rangeriffic other than give it a SAW and a crossfit gym membership.

    After an instant of near panic, Marcus realizes he's got his bow in hand and the Zen calm of his training settles over him like a mantle of peace. He draws and knocks, and sends an arrow flying to the single goblin in his view. That arrow is followed by a second before the first has even reached it's mark. Both missiles fly true, threading the townsfolk between Marcas and his targets flawlessly and slamming into the hapless Goblin with meaty thunks.Marcus fells the goblin with his first arrow and plugs another into it before he even realizes the creature is out for the count. Talashia lifted her hands, and spoke two words...words that through long practice and conditioning created a channel in her mind. A safe passage to tap into that maelstrom within herself. A blaze of sparks radiated from her fingers and coalesced into a sharp, blue jag of pure magical energy that hovered between her palms for a moment...then snapped forward with a loud CRACK, zigzagging effortlessly through the crowd, up...

Deivon wonders. http://i898.photobucket.com/albums/ac185/samthedagger/RotR/Brodert_zpsb73cf283.jpg "A very good point. We uh, actually do not know if there was a coast here. For all we know the entire place might have been underwater, or the coast might have extended leagues to the west. But it was so many thousands of years ago, and so few Thassilonian maps remain that it is virtually impossible to know for certain. You are indeed to wise to suggest such a thing. You uh, have the makings of a scholar yourself, young one." "Yes, I heard you the first time" Duko explains.

    You are a harsh mistress to ask forgiveness for such acts. Is there a point where the good of the many intervenes? Deivon asks of his goddess. I'm beginning to wonder if Serenrae is the right goddess for this adventure.Unless you are starting to doubt whether Sarenrae is actually a good fit for your character, I believe she is an excellent fit for the campaign. She is one of the six most prominent deities in the region, as well as one of the six deities to which the Sandpoint Cathedral pays homage. Remember that while Sarenrae is the goddess of redemption, she has another aspect as well. "The clergy of Sarenrae are peaceful most of the time, administering to their flock with a gentle hand and wise words. Such kindness vanishes, however, when the church is stirred to action against an evil that cannot be redeemed—particularly against the cult of Rovagug. At such times, Sarenrae’s clerics become dervishes, dancing among foes while allowing their scimitars to give their opponents f...

This close to home, Talashia was feeling upbeat and generous.The girl stares at the coins almost in disbelief before quickly shoveling them off the tray and stuffing them into a pocket in her apron.

    Crunch posted. Need help with flavor, All I have so far, Varasian devotee of Serenrae.Devion Dawn Seeker has been reviewed. Happily enough I found no errors. After some research into the Pathfinder Chronicles Gazetteer (which oddly enough does not mention Shoanti, possibly because they are a relatively small subrace), I will note that according to this source, Common in Golarion is also known as Taldane, and less commonly as Chelaxian. So it seems Chelaxian is not actually a language in and of itself according to this source. There might be more details in the actual campaign setting book, but I don't own it. The original Player's Guide for RotR however (which, we should bear in mind was written when Golarion was a spec in Paizo's eye), says humans of Varisian descent receive Varisian, Chelaxians receive Chelaxian, and Shoanti receive Shoanti. So we'll go with that for now.

    I realized that, and student of faith gives a reason to be in Sandpoint. The dedication of the new temple. However it gives no indication of why your a cleric in the first place or your background in general. As for the traits mentioned, I did consider them. Merchant family, I was unsure of, as I'm not sure he's using the economy rules. The character creation doesn't seem to support it. As for the horse, that would work for a crusader or a knight, unsure of anyone else. Also Deivon has a ride skill of -3.If you are referring to the community economy rules from the Game Mastery Guide, yes I will be using them. So Merchant Family will be of use in that regard. Try this and see if you can get the ball rolling. You don't necessarily need to roll on the tables, although that could create a fairly interesting background in and of itself. But just looking at the tables might give you some ideas.

    I have responded to the OP invite and have a rough draft of my human Rogue posted. I decided to go with the Core Only Option. Rogues right out of the box are pretty interesting and have considerable options. As for my expectations of the game. I guess I am a gamest at my core. I just like playing. Competing, fighting, solving problems, getting to the bottom of the mysteries. I do enjoy getting into character for that and doing the roleplay that goes along with it. I sometimes come up with unusual solutions to problems. I have a fairly stressful and demanding career and a busy family life, so gaming is a bit of escapism for me as well. A chance to have a little fun between meetings and dealing with various crises that arise day and night. I don't have time to play face to face with any regularity any more so I do rely on pbp games to get my fix. I should note that I am taking a short vacation for fall break and I may do little or no posting from Sunday to Thursday. I plan to finish my char...

    Does non-core include stuff in the adventue path? In other words, items, classes or feats introduced there.If it is in the Player's Guide (either the original or the Anniversary Edition), it is open game, whether you choose the Core Rulebook Only Option or not. Now if you mean the new rules introduced in the Appendix of the Adventure Path itself, unless it appears elsewhere in the PRD, consider it secret knowledge. Honestly, there isn't a lot in there; one feat, a handful of spells, and a few magic items, most of them artifacts or items with a very specific purpose which would be of little use to PCs or items which are intended to be unique. Most of the stuff from Rise of the Runelords was taken right out of the rulebooks. There is one magic item you will be able to purchase in most major cities though. I've attached the description. It might give you an idea of what awaits you. 59132
