Okay, I had remembered looking into it, but that was awhile ago.  One of those things that was a little blurry getting back up to speed.

Re: Possible Restart
I ha been coming considering what sort of "energies" Kellans items may have been picking up. Does a Guardian weapon and a Spell Resistant Chain Hauberk sound reasonable?

Re: Possible Restart
+1 Spell Resistance (13) Chain hauberk would cost 9,000 + cost of a masterwork chain hauberk.

+1 Guardian weapon would cost 8,000 gp + the cost of a masterwork weapon.

Either one sounds good for Kellan (he's certainly been targeted by enough spells), but combined that's a little above your current limit (16k gp).  Plus you'll need to factor in the items you already have.

Re: Possible Restart
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.

The backup weapon couldn't cost any more than the gold you have already spent on your main weapon.  This lets combat characters have a little flexibility without necessarily costing them an arm and a leg.  And I'm not certain it would necessarily be worth it to get more than a token magic weapon for a backup in any event.

What do you all think about that idea?

Re: Possible Restart
Pisca has several ways of channeling magic through a mundane weapon now.  That's the reason she does not possess even one magic weapon to begin with.  Her weapons are currently only Masterwork at best.  Arcane Strike, which requires a Swift Action.  (http://www.d20pfsrd.com/feats/...rcane-strike-combat/)  And Archaeologist's Luck. (http://www.d20pfsrd.com/classe...types/archaeologist/)

For Pisca any magic weapon would be ... somewhat superfluous.  Not entirely.  There's advantage to having a reliable, always-on magic weapon.  But that's the reason that Pisca does not currently even have magic on a primary weapon, let alone a backup.

Strikes me that the situations are somewhat similar in the case of both Cato and Liseth.  The magic weapon is just not that important.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
