Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
Per a player's request, please find a (draft) map of Old Nigotier using the link below.  I'm still working on a map of the Southern Vale, where the campaign is centered, but it will take a while.  Something about a series of alpine mountains and valleys makes it difficult to illustrate in a way that conveys the terrain without flooding the map with overt and distracting information (i.e., it becomes very very busy very quickly, and thus hard to read or comprehend).

https://www.deviantart.com/uk1..._new=10%3A1598318912

Speaking generally, the Southern Vale is located in the Kaithydun Mountains, near the mouth of the river on the map leading to the north toward the sea.

Quick housekeeping item:

This is the color I use for general DM stuff, like narration and so forth.
This is the color I use for OOC comments, such as when discussing/adjudicating game mechanics and so forth.

It helps if everyone else just keeps their text to simple black, unless making an OOC comment.  Otherwise the screen just becomes a sea of clashing and confusing colors.

Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
Chronicler,

I have a question regarding our PCs' Health.

I understand how Damage is applied first to Stamina (i.e., before Hit Points are affected). In that sense, Stamina is kinda like Temporary Hit Points.

How does Health relate to Stamina and Hit Points? I don't know the answer, and I don't want to fail that portion of your test. :)

Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
1/2 hit points = stamina
1/2 hit points = health

Stamina is more easily replenished by rest and loss of stamina is more akin to being winded or a little roughed up than taking serious physical damage.

Health takes longer to replenish, because it represents actual physical damage.  When you start taking damage to your health (once you no longer have stamina), it is representative of sword cuts slicing open flesh, spear points piercing skin and damaging organs, etc.  Restoring health requires not just rest, but direct medical care.  Damage to health is also likely to leave scars, even when magic is used for repair.

Whereas stamina is fully restored after a longer rest, health could require days to fully restore.  This has a couple of effects: it forces characters to be more strategic in their hostile actions (this is a bane to murder hobos) and diplomacy, it slows down the frequency of combat (no more Supermanning it through dungeons), and adds more tension to the game (characters are now a lot more mortal).

Needless to say, the first few levels could prove deadly when getting into combat encounters.  For this purpose, I'm scaling back some of the challenges or removing them completely.  (I've run this adventure twice in the past with friends at the table and TPKd them both times, once with with a rat swarm and another time with an enemy not to be mentioned here, using normal hp rules--long story, but their healer didn't know what he was doing and I rolled an unbelievable number of crits both times.)  So for me as the DM, this will prove challenging finding ways to place obstacles in the party's way without overwhelming them through mechanical attrition.

Finally, I think this fits the thematic element of the setting.  This is the Age of Madness.  Simply being alive is dangerous to your health.  No one walks Telluria with a promise of a new morning.

Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
In reply to Chronicler (msg # 41):

So . . . I think that I am starting to get it.

As I understand it, Hit Points are used merely as a means of computing Health and Stamina, in which case they (Hit Points) are no longer in play when considering the effects of Damage -- only Stamina and Health are.

Do I have that right?

I was trying to still find a use for Hit Points other than in the Health/Stamina equation, but it sounds like there is none.

Thanks.

Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
Hit points in this instance are merely the sum of the two.  Damage will be subtracted first from Stamina (akin to  the temporary hit points observation made earlier), and then from health.

Dicestormers came up with this system as a sort-of in-between for normal hack and slash super hero hp mechanics and the wait 7 seven days between each encounter of the gritty hp mechanics.

This is my first time using the system in full, so we can change it midstream if simply isn't working.

Can you also quickly run through again how cure spells work with stamina and health? Cure spells only cure health?

Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
Chronicler,

Cobale's in-game appearance made me wonder how she would be viewed, IC (on a scale ranging from "Eh, it's a Goliath -- not too common hereabouts, but really no big deal" to "Argh! It's a monster! Look at how big it is! Run, before it eats you!").

Upon searching, I found the following in the "Campaign Setting" thread: "Gociteru consists of entirely of goliaths.  This ethnic group is centered on the western side old Nigotier."

So, then . . . how would Cobale be viewed, in-game, in the Low Hollow region?

Thanks.

Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
While goliaths were originally native to the Kaithydun Mountains, they were displaced by the Gotier almost a thousand years ago.  So indeed, seeing one in the Southern Vale, let alone other parts of Old Nigotier, is rare.  And at this time, that means lots of suspicion and avoidance towards them when they are encountered.

Cobale, how do you see your character being treated by those not of your kin?

Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
I figure that the reaction to her has been widely varied as she has traveled from her home, where Goliaths still are commonplace. In those places where direct confrontations occur, the interactions were unpleasant, bordering on hostile, as if her presence itself was an attack from a monster. Once she moved past communities where conflicts occur, the tension deescalated down to suspicion and avoidance. Throw in her wearing 'human' clothes rather than 'goliath' clothes and not carrying any 'axes the size of a 12 year old' some of the suspicion from some has shifted to curiosity about the giant in a dress.

Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
Rather than making you guys wait for the ages it will take me to complete the new version of the area map, I've decided to stick with my previous ideas for the geography.  Below is a link to where the map is located online.  One big important note: the orientation needs be changed, so that where the compass is pointing north on the map, consider that to be east.  The alterations between the version linked below and the version I'm working on now are so significant, that if I do end up completing the new version before the end of the campaign it will be of no use to us here.  So for better or worse, this our campaign map.

Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
Another point on the discussion about Cobale's "reception."  Small tribes of hill giants are known to roam through the Kaithydun Mountains, particularly Low Hollow, from time to time.  While not welcomed or appreciated when they do so, knowledge of and experience with the hill giants would mean that people are at least acquainted with the "larger" folk and although the size differential would certainly still be intimidating, it is not completely outlandish.  That is to say that Cobale's size would be less of an otherworldly figure than a novelty worthy of caution and curiosity.

Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
It hasn't.  For the sake of expediency, we'll just make it common knowledge (as some of the characters would know off hand and other wouldn't).  The settlement of Robernyde is five miles from Cotylac by road (just shy of 2 hours walking), and the mine is another two miles from there, up steep terrain (so about 1-2 hours additional travel).

Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
Album Schnix:
Also I have one about skill check, are you the only one to roll or is that on special occasions?


In case I made this unclear, in most cases I won't elect on my own to roll a check for you.  If you want your character to make a skill check, say for example to perform an Insight check during a conversation, just let me know as an OOC in your post.  More often than not I'll roll the check and resolve the outcome in my posted response.  On a case-by-case basis, I'll have the player roll the check instead.

By keeping the roll out of sight, it helps to create more roleplaying situations.  A close fail on an insight check leads you to not quite be able to peer through the target's affectations, body language, tone, and so forth.  The person may seem unreadable or your doubts are not quite settled.  A really bad roll, like a 1 or 2, could mean you've seriously misread the situation, falling for a total lie or believing motivations that aren't there.  By keeping the roll out of sight, verisimilitude gets propped up a little.

Also, after sooooo many times seeing players (myself included) metagame based on a die roll--oh, you rolled a 3 on your insight check, well I'm going to insight check this guy, too so we can get a better die roll, crap I also got a 4, can someone else insight check this guy--this helps to keep that behavior in check.

The party has three successes.  One more is needed.  Remember that the DC increases with repeat use of a skill.


Does this hold true when a PC uses the same Skill that he or she used previously, or is it intended to apply (only) to two different PCs using the same Skill?

Hopefully it won't matter, and we'll pick up that fourth success pretty quickly either way. I am curious, for future reference, however. :)

Thanks!

Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
It's cumulative for all uses of the skill, regardless of who uses it. Otherwise in a situation like this, people would just roll survival check after survival check after survival check ... and where is the fun in that?

I hope everyone had a good weekend.  I'll be posting up this afternoon, so if there is anything anybody wants to post prior to then, please do so.  Thanks.

Sorry, a combination of work, home obligations, persistent illness, and (to be honest) launching kerbals into space have kept me from posting regular.

We still good here? I see a few who haven't logged in in a few days, and Caoilfhionn isn't exactly a talker here, so.

Re: The Gathering Stone (OOC)
My sincerest apologies, but life and work have gotten very crazy at this time.  I simply cannot maintain a reasonable posting rate with everything going on right now.  I'm sorry for not being able to carry through with the campaign.  Thank you for your time and interest while the campaign lasted.

In reply to Chronicler (msg # 91):

Thanks for having the stones to make the announcement in-game, as opposed to just disappearing (as many players and DMs alike seem to quite commonly do here on RPoL).

Good luck. I hope that RL calms down for you, and that at some point in the future you can find the time to enjoy our hobby.

Wishing you fair winds and a following sea. :)

PS. If you would like to put this game on sabbatical in the hopes that you will have the opportunity to start it up again at some point in the future, I would be fine with that. :)
