5E (OOC) Fitz's Folly (Full)

With tabaxi climbing speed, roofs are barely speed bump

Oh yeah, he could be on the roof, I just assumed that he'd rather be down between the buildings in case the archer wanted to shoot at him. (I kind of imagined him avoiding most of the difficult terrain back there (rubble, vines, overgrowth) by leaping back-and-forth between the wall of the building and the side of the raised-road.

So... here I am getting ready to put this game to be for awhile (I plan to return to it eventually!) and then I get this overwhelming urge to run a short story inspired by a chunk of Rime of the Frostmaiden. I've learned my lesson regarding trying to run whole 5e hardcover adventure books (my best estimate is that it would take about 10 years to run one of those books from start to finish in PBP. We may FEEL like we're nearing the climax of Tomb of Annihilation in this game, but I think we've done a bout a third of the book.)

I really, REALLY like Rime of the Frostmaiden for PBP. It's easily split into lots of short stories that can be used in PBP.

I have found that I'm starting to get some extra time every morning (my wife and kids are back in school)... so I just might have time to do it. I thought I'd give you guys the heads-up so that if I get around to posting an interest check, you can jump in if you want. I really enjoy playing with all of you. That said, you're all in Scourge as well now, so I think I'll probably post an interest thread (as opposed to just personally inviting you all to play) so that some others might get the chance to jump-in if they like. (But I don't want to NOT include you either, so I'm here to warn you about it, so you can jump in if you're interested.)

Keep an eye out for it.

Okay, I'll definitely try to. That said, I'm definitely leaning more towards PF 2 at the moment. I'm even thinking of running "Little Trouble in Big Absolom" as a one-shot pretty soon. Fitz, I'd like to offer you a guaranteed player slot if I do.

I'd be in for that. I ran some playtesting for PF2 IRL, but that was a long time ago. I'm not up on the rules well enough to run it, I'm afraid. I'm only just barely able to make a character for it. But I'll do it for your game!

I plan on living forever. Or die trying.
I'm playing pf2 currently over skype and roll20. We are at 6th level after 15 sessions 3-5 hours each.

Action system is great. Healing...not su much. Our DM quickly ruled that healing kit has charges and 1 combat with four PCs will essentially spend 10 charges without thinking.

Priest healer with focus on healing can heal single character from 0 to full or nearly so. But so could specced out healer in 4e :)

I am an alchemist bomber and only healer now we burned our priest at the inquisition. So far, I kept them alive.

That said, if you have some time, I'd rather continue this story. But I'm open to new things

Pf2 healing is a bit weird. It seems after a certain point the limited full rest healing becomes a moot point due to medicine skill and/or 10 minute rechargeable focus heals. A Paladin at lv 1 can spend a few hours to reset everyone to full health. And at lv 3 anyone trained in medicine can take assurance to make sure they can always guarantee 2d8 HP to anyone who needs it without having to actually roll a check.

And there is a feat leaning on battle medicine (heal for 1 action) that makes the PC immune to it for 1 hour instead of 1 day

So, in each combat of the day (assuming they are separated enough) you can get 2d8 or 4d8 instant healing for single action
