Re: Possible Restart
I'm back!  Awesome trip; my professor is crazy and eccentric and Australian.  We found ammonites and permineralized wood and leaf imprints and fish scales.  Also it snowed on our campsite.

So many misadventures too, but it's so much to try and share here; I don't want to blow up the OOC.

Kellan:
Does a...Spell Resistant Chain Hauberk sound reasonable?


Wouldn't that force me to make a caster level check just to cast a cure Spell on Kellan?  I actually don't have a lot of experience using Spell Resistance.

Racon:
I've been considering allowing characters to have backup magic weapons that cost 1/2 of normal.  So for Kellan that would be a ranged weapon, for Kerr it would be a melee weapon, etc.  Pisca could probably choose.


I'm not even sure what I would do with a backup melee weapon.  With Strength 7 I'm already at -2 to hit and damage.  Something like a Light Mace might be the most appropriate melee weapon for Liseth, but a +1 Light Mace would only amount to +3 to hit for d6-1 damage.  I suppose it could be useful with features like Merciful or Holy, but that's beyond the set price limitation.

Those Ammonites were a long way from home!

Re: Possible Restart
Yeah, in hindsight, making threatening actions with the door open maybe not the best idea.  Unless this "guardsman" is part of the same troupe acting out the farce in front of us.

20:08, Today: Cato Crispin rolled 19 using 1d20+6.  Initiative.

Re: Possible Restart
Cato, your haste spell takes effect after the Foxgloves' actions.

Re: Possible Restart
I show Pisca having 38 Hit Points.  If she's taken 38 Hit Points that would put her at Zero, wouldn't it?  And at Zero, isn't she Disabled? https://www.d20pfsrd.com/gamem...isabled-0-Hit-Points-

quote:
Disabled (0 Hit Points)
When your current hit point total drops to exactly 0, you are disabled.

You gain the staggered condition and can only take a single move or standard action each turn (but not both, nor can you take full-round actions). You can take move actions without further injuring yourself, but if you perform any standard action (or any other strenuous action) you take 1 point of damage after completing the act. Unless your activity increased your hit points, you are now at –1 hit points and dying.

Healing that raises your hit points above 0 makes you fully functional again, just as if you’d never been reduced to 0 or fewer hit points.

You can also become disabled when recovering from dying. In this case, it’s a step toward recovery, and you can have fewer than 0 hit points (see Stable Characters and Recovery).


That is, as opposed to into Negative Hit Points and Dying.

quote:
Dying (Negative Hit Points)
If your hit point total is negative, but not equal to or greater than your Constitution score, you’re dying.

A dying character immediately falls unconscious and can take no actions.

A dying character loses 1 hit point every round. This continues until the character dies or becomes stable.


Or have I figured something incorrectly here?

Re: Possible Restart
Disabled is such an uncommon condition; it's easily overlooked.

Also, I thought Pisca had 42 HP?  Didn't she have the same as Liseth?

Re: Possible Restart
Well, it looks as if I indeed messed up the 0 HP thing.  Should have looked it up.  I'll rewrite the post, I guess.

In reply to The Raconteur (msg # 300):

FWIW, I don't think a whole lot is going to change.  I don't think the door gets closed.  That's probably the biggest thing.

Re: Possible Restart
So, is my action right now just casting Haste?

Re: Possible Restart
Well if we were at a table...this is when I would be looking around and wondering if  we should continue.

We are obviously into something, between Kerr's detext evil and Iesha turning out to be an expert killer...but Pisca sis just get downed in one round.

Granted they were very lucky rolls...

Re: Possible Restart
They were pretty lucky rolls!  And remember Pisca was flanked, so they got a combat bonus as well as any sneak-attack damage to which they might be entitled.

And yes, Cato, you've cast Haste this round, so Kellan and Liseth you are both under its influence.

I'm still befuddled by my ability to roll criticals on this system.  Hopefully Kerr will get one as well!

Re: Possible Restart
They're not illusions.  We've determined that much.  Alternatives are disguise and shape changing.  If we're talking disguise, then we have CHA in play.  But, I'm wondering whether the CHA is placed where it can compete with us.  That is to say, in diplomacy.

Liseth is the diplomacy queen.  If she can convince the city guard, we may have an ally that could tip the balance in this.  Either way, it may be an interesting competition, trying to sway the guard to one side or the other through reason and/or charm.

Re: Possible Restart
I couldn't decide how to do this action, so I went with making placating the guardsmen a full-time action for myself.  I was hung on the fact that diplomacy typically takes a minute or more, but 10 combat rounds might be a little silly in the situation.

I'm not even sure how Racon wants to handle the attempt, so I didn't roll anything yet.  My Diplomacy skill is +16 though.
