Whoops. Where was my brain at? Oh well just carry on and we'll do it right in the future.

Re: OOC Chat
Perception and Survival are interchangeable for finding tracks.  Survival is used to let you follow them for a mile at a time.  So... it's kind of both.

Re: OOC Chat
Jade is correct.

"...you can use the Perception skill to find a footprint or similar sign of a creature’s passage using the same (Tracking) DCs, but you can’t use Perception to follow tracks, even if someone else has already found them"

From what I can tell, we are looking at Firm Ground "Most normal outdoor surfaces (such as lawns, fields, woods, and the like)", which is a DC15 with two day old trail, making it DC17. Maybe 1 or 2 less based on the size of the Drake.

But that only matters if someone in the group has at least 1 rank in Survival since untrained checks can only follow DC10 or lower tracks. DM, do we need to start coming up with alternative plans?

Re: OOC Chat
If nobody is trained in tracking you can probably follow it for at least a while untrained but would likely lose the trail.

I didn't make this clear like I should have, but the tracks are not headed into the area you guys were going to do a sweeping search of, so if you can't track it you can always continue looking for the guy in the search area.

Or maybe fiddle with the cubes of packed earth in some way. Essentially imagine someone cut the ground below the camp into sections and left them there so they could be moved magically. And they had been moved.

If you wanted to mess with the ground at all they are still just packed earth.

Re: OOC Chat
Well if you want to make another roll to replace your prior mediocre one go ahead given the situation around the check has changed.

Re: OOC Chat
Given the benefit of being trained rather than untrained you could probably follow the tracks a little farther than the untrained default of a 10 DC and make another check to not lose them further along when untrained folk wouldn't have a real chance.

Re: OOC Chat
If you Take 10, you'll hit a 17 on the check. If 17 turns out not to be sufficient, we can pivot.

Re: OOC Chat
Taking 10 is one of my favorite rules in PF1 (mainly because my luck with dice is atrocious).  I hate that they got rid of it in any meaningful way in PF2.

Re: OOC Chat
Updates will be coming within 24 hours (probably toward the latter half of that). Sorry for the slow rate, been crazy lately. Had to take over another game suddenly when the GM bailed and at work we had a Covid scare so I'm saddled with double work (thankfully the guy tested negative but he's still got to self-quarantine for a bit).

Going to be down a few more days. Food poisoning, ugh. One of the worst cases I have ever had. Sorry.

Re: OOC Chat
I'm around. Sorry for being gone so long. Death in the family. Not anyone close to me, but I still had to travel and didn't have access to the net.

Freaking archaic southern relatives. Lol

Re: OOC Chat
Understandable. I grew up in Miami and now up in North Central Florida. I ended up moving North to be in the South.

Re: OOC Chat
Yeah, sorry. I was waiting for the roll call, juggling some life stuff. The like.

We've essentially lost half of our players though. So I will probably retcon the teams onto the same team and cut the side that died. Then get everything swinging again.

That sound okay to ya'll?

Re: OOC Chat
I've been pretty distracted with some RL stuff, but if you're putting things back together, I'll make an effort to be active.  I also missed the roll call.  Obviously.
