Welcome back to the ahem 'Bathhouse', a progressive thread that I'm sure plenty of anons wish would just fucking die already. What, its true,....
This particular beginning is heavily seasoned with enthusiasm and delight. Hot on the heels of killing a bunch of We Wuz, the party almost shattered for several reasons, both in-game and out. In spite of it all, the characters continue on their quest to do,... well,... stuff.
Trumpaladin has been gifted a quest from Lord John Elway. Infernius has been gifted a quest from the Fuhrer, Tracy wants to stab more shit, Torcuil is beginning to get clever with his use of Snek not like that you perv and Thez is thanking her lucky stars that she even exists anymore.
Torc decides to train Snek while his faggot gets artistic.
Can Snek get feats? Or no?
I'm good with it. Only one to start tho.
>>47678>Thez is thanking her lucky stars that she even exists anymore
I still kek at how ironic that sounds.
I suggest Point Blank Shot, or Exotic Weapon Proficiency.
Tracy feeds her birds once again.
>>47681 →>will be considered
Maybe I said too much... Hehe..
You know, perfectly abiding by the rules, and even at level 17, Trumpaladin is eligible for a very young Silver dragon as a cohort. At level 18, he'll be eligible for a very young Gold Dragon
I thought you had to be ebin lvl for that?
And when he's into lower epic levels, he'll be eligible for a young Gold dragon, or even a juvenile Silver Dragon
I tried drawing Mr. Snek, and I learned I can't draw a fucking gun for shit. Snek turned out pretty good though>>47685>>47683
I think point blank shot would be best for Snek, especially since it opens up the way for more ranged feats.
What determines what cohorts you can attract and when?
Also, can Tracy make a profession check to open her Ranch now?
Well, the dragons I want are ones that share my alignment and these are also the ones that have the ability to shape shift, which limits it to the third (sort of tied for second) most ebin dragon (besides bullshit like the force dragon) in the entire set of dragons, and the most ebin dragon subspecies in the book. This means that the two dragon subspecies I am interested in have high modifiers.>>47693
Well, you have to have the leadership feat (and epic leadership to have leadership scores beyond level 25), and then leadership score is determined by character level plus charisma modifier and a few other modifiers, but the leadership score allows you to attract a cohort of up to a certain effective character level. You can have a cohort of up to two effective character levels lower than your current level, but never higher.
effective character level is not the same thing as hit die, since many races have features that make them more powerful or capable per hit die than others. The two lawful good dragon species have very high adjustment modifiers, so that means a pretty strict limit on the number of hit die he can have in a cohort.
A character can try to attract cohorts of specific races, classes, and alignments.
Can you attract outsiders as cohorts?
Several types of outsiders have adjustment scores so apparently yes
[1d20+16 = 23]>>47697>>47694
Making Profession (animal/monster husbandry) check to open personal Monster Ranch in forest/grove.
... Does that pass?
It's not like Dimensional Anchor has a limited amount of time that it's effective or anything
I wouldn't mind having some hags, giants, or devils to help out around the place.>>47701
We'll just re-cast the spell.
Wait until all of the zombies get hungry and eat each other.
[1d6 = 1]
[11d8+14 = 56]
Please excuse my random rolling as I run some numbers
Do you have no interest in killing things?
You only get one cohort
>>47703>those shitty ass rolls
I'm not really that interested in attracting cohorts, but having NPCs to help-out around the ranch would be nice.
You will need to be explicit about what you envision, intend, and hope to affect by way of this Ranch. What is it called? The Ranch? This is not a "pass/fail" roll, this is an availability/suitability of land, resources, etc.>>47701
So very this>>47706
I hear there are mercenaries
I want her to have a small establishment in the woods, looking over a wide fenced portion of the grove which she's designated as her land. Animals she owns would be allowed to graze there.
I didn't think of a name, desu. I mostly wanted land, rather than shekels. I guess just saying "Tracy's Grazing Space: Trespassers will be stabbed on sight" was kind of my idea at first, but that feels kind of stupid in hindsight... I'll think of a name.
My primary goal was the acquisition of land and animals. The land being for her personal use primarily (ponies like having land).
Whatever pets she accumulated that she didn't feel like killing or otherwise found: they'd be allowed to live there semi-peacefully.
I thought of buying horses too, since they're not expensive.
But still, the monsters.
Land is the first step, but yes, I want monsters.
Basic/common livestock would be available more or less, as well as land for crops so as to design a fully sovereign and self-sustaining operation. Like a Shaolin Temple except more stabby.
It's good to have land, especially in a feudal system.
I said at the beginning that one of her original goals was to buy-up land to live on after she'd settled down.
Also, bring land-less in a feudal system is the epitome of cuckholdry.
I think I might want to have her investigate the far end of that grove first though. The way that Nithing was destroyed hints at some potentially annoying holy crap that I'd rather purge sooner than later.
Some potentially annoying crap you'd rather purge sooner than later?
You mean like a nest of lichs and phylacteries in the harbor?
I'll do that first.
Love that movie, btw.
*keens edges to prepare for next crawl*
>>47723I'm just saying, it really sucks that you can't Sneak Attack or Crit undead..
>>47724That's one of the biggest reasons I didn't want the concealment gone in the mummy fight... I was under the impression that you could sneak attack themAt least Sharpness as a magical sword feature works on themPerchance, do you know if undead can become exhausted?
No, they can't get tired: they don't even have Constitution scores.
[frustrates rogue noises]
>>47678>Thez is thanking her lucky stars that she even exists anymore
Just for the hell of it I decided to roll for Fae's treasure - since new NPCs are supposed to have a standard set of equipment when they join the party, and when it's a monster with a CR rating, you use the monster's treasure instead - and I ended up with a scroll that has two "waves of exhaustion" spells on it. A spell that does pretty much exactly what the Dragonne breathe weapon does
Pretty sure you don't roll starting gear for pre-existing NPCs.>Breath weapon
It's a Sonic attack. Like that of a Howler or Yeth Hound.
>>47730She'd make an awesome cape though.
I want to level up already so Tracy can summon her servant..
You roll gear for new cohorts (though she's not a cohort)>>47732
I did the math and we have a very, very, very large number of mummies and lichs to kill before the next level>Sonic affect
Eh, it doesn't say so in the entry, so I'm guessing for the purposes of whatever usually negates a sonic effect it's not one. It looks like a reference to Dragon breath weapons and lion roars, since it's a supernatural ability
Or it's not a sonic type that cannot be stopped by plugging the ears. Not mind-affecting
Several creatures have roar/howl Ex abilities: they're considered to be Sonic weapons.
Okay. I don't really care what you call it. There is absolutely nothing in the entry for either one that suggests a supernatural sonic attack is anything other than a kind of breath weapon, and if it isn't, I don't give a shit, because I like the idea of a hybrid brass dragon having its own breath weapon and I don't care about pedantry for a fantasy game
It's a Charisma-based will save though, so it'd still effectively have the same mechanic.
It's definitely not a Breath Weapon: it'd allow a reflex save in that case.>Covering your ears
Few creatures have that ability, but I doubt any creature unable to hear the roar would be affected. It probably wouldn't affect any deaf creature, or a sonic-immune creature like a Destrachan (fucking love Destrachans btw).
Oh don't make that face You'd get a new one in a month.
It probably would've been listed as a spell-like ability if it used any component other than Sonic, so it probably follows the basic rules of Sonic abilities:https://dnd-wiki.org/wiki/SRD:Sonic_Attack
>>47738>It would allow a reflex save if it were a breath weapon
Did you even read the entry? It says:
"Some breath weapons allow a Fortitude save or a Will save instead of a Reflex save">I doubt any creature unable to hear the roar would be affected. It probably wouldn't affect any deaf creature, or a sonic-immune creature like a Destrachan (fucking love Destrachans btw)
All of that shit you made up. None of that is in the entry.>>47740
Did you bother to read the entry for Dragonne? It's an Su - a supernatural ability. Not an Sp or spell like ability. Like a breathe weapon.
Yeah, I'm just typing out of memory.. It is an Su ability now that I look at it.
I guess it's not far-fetched to treat it as a breath weapon, since only Dragonnes are immune to it, like every other creature with that ability. I wonder what energy it'd be based off.
That's a good sign that it's time for me to sleep..
Sonic is an energy type, so maybe both at the same time>>47743
I should probably sleep for once
Considering that it's will-based, it really doesn't matter if you call it a breath weapon or not. The Roar by itself is it's own ability. I just thought it'd be treated just like a howler's roar.
Sonic attacks are great. Too bad so few of them are ally exclusive. Great spread though.
>>47745>Not ally exclusive
Shhh! Don't let GM find out, because I want to use this ability in the future
It's a 6 point strength and Dexterity drain for all creatures within 30 feet that fail their saving throws. If I cast Eagle's splendor on self and mount - or if she casts Eagle's splendor on herself when she levels up - then the save DC on her roar rises by another two points
It isn't though.
That's why I've never bothered to summon a Howler: it'd exhaust everyone but Tracy and Thez.
Neither the dwelf nor the pony are outsiders
Tracy is in nightmare form. Thez counts as one because of her Perfect Self class feature.
I think that was what was bannished though>Tracy is in nightmare form
Creatures with alternate forms retain the type and subtype of the original form. Do you want to be specially vulnerable to banes and various anti-evil outsider spells? Because that's the only difference it makes
I assumed she counted as one because everything else was the same, but I don't really know or care. The subtype isn't really that relevant for me.
Either way, she could always just change back into a pony if there's issues.
If I burn/blow-up a building or other lage populated area, and a bunch of NPCs die at once, do I still get XP for killing them indirectly?
>>47733>we have a very, very, very large number of mummies and lichs to kill before the next level
Then we'll just have to re-kill them faster.
Is the party going to try to smack some info out of Kang Doot before the crawl?
You'll need to supply more hypothetical context. As you have worded it, no.
It was mostly a joke to stir-up conversation.
But hypothetically, if you set fire to a building to kill an enemy inside, does that count as your kill?
Tbh, I don't really care was just shitposting to get a reaction...
Now I have a question along those lines.
If Torc somehow set the dust on fire triggering the explosion, how much of the dungeon would that bypass?
Also, can Snek get a chameleon ring?
The dungeon is made of glassteel, so it's pretty much indestructible to any means except the ship's cannons (your meteor swarm didn't do shit to it, remember).
Remind me to pick-up the shards of material from where we entered, so Tracy can make some collector's-edition shanks.
If you manage to get one, he could wear it on his tail.
You could also just cast invisibility on him, if you wanted. Tracy could also make him a Hat of Disguise, to emulate the effect.
Snek with hat is /bestmeme/, btw.
Snek w/ hat thread when?>>47759
Chameleon rings require 13 days of Disguise Self and Invisibility to fabricate.
Soon...>>47761>ring or hat
Yeah, I guess a hat would be good, looks pretty good on sneks for some reason.
But I really wanted that +10 on hide checks>>47760
I know the fire won't do shit to the temple, but the same isn't quite true for everything inside.
>>47764>I really wanted that +10 on hide checks
You and me both…
He'd need it, because he's YUGE, so he takes a -8 penalty on Hide checks.
I'm not sure if he retains his monster skill points after getting class levels, but a Giant Constrictor normally has 10 ranks in Hide.
But he gets a +4 species bonus for hide checks, so I don't know if that means the -8 doesn't apply to him or what.
He get's both: -8 size penalty and +4 racial bonus.
That's not good for a rogue
Well, he's only lvl 1.
He's not even first level yet, he's level 0
But doesn't he have 13 levels in snek and probably a familiar HD bonus?
Do your creature stats really stack with your character lvls?
What does that mean, btw?
Yes and no. He's an 11HD creature, but hasn't gained sufficient experience to advance to level 1 as a Rogue. As a familiar, he gets +9 to his Natural Armor, and has a de-facto intelligence of 14. As a familiar also, he has a default HP of 1/2 Torcuil.
BTW, Torcuil gets +2 on his bluff checks.
Level 0 means that the character has begun to learn the basics of the class, and gets minimal (very) abilities of the class.
Thez for example, declared level 0 Sorcerer. Because of her Charisma bonus she can cast 1 bonus 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th level spell per day, but she only knows
one 0 level spell (Dancing Lights). So she can cast Dancing Lights a bunch of times.
In a comparable manner, Snek would have minimal initial skill points to apply (level one is (8+Int)x4, probably <1/2. Additionally he wouldn't yet be able to sneak attack, etc.
When determining character level, yes, you stack racial hit die of a monster with its character levels>>47774
I think that means snek is not yet a rogue
Definitely claiming a Silver or Gold dragon as a waifu
Do characters with PC class levels even get the bonus HD?
Is there any drawback to taking zero levels?
I might have Tracy late a 0 lvl in Sorcerer then, so she can get Mage Hand and lvl up as an Arcane Trickster.
Could Snek get a top hat with the Shadow enchantment?
Trump is still with the party yes?
"Uhm,... can I ask you something?" Thez asks, attempting nonchalance, but failing cuz Trump's sense motive is absurd. She wants something.>>47778
Both canon and ITT, I'm going with "no". I allowed it for Fae cuz otherwise she's cannon fodder, but Tracy is already more than uber.>>47779
Taking a 0 level commits the character to advancing in that level upon next level advancement, which may have its own variety of consequences.
Now for the part you're all going to like (mostly).
When it comes to skill checks, there's an optional rule I've been employing liberally without saying anything.
Any time a character is making a skill check against a DC that is -20 or more of their rank, they can opt to take a 10 on their dice roll as long as they are not engaged in combat. The idea is that the task of so simple compared to their developed skill that they could do it with their eyes closed. Tying one's shoes would be a DC1 rope use check, where its so basic that the chance of failure is nil.
"Do you,... still have that robe with all the pockets? I was thinking,... if you weren't using it,... I mean if you are using it then forget I said anything. But if you're not,... I don't know,... maybe you'd consider trading for something?"
GM, can you answer that question about the Hecatoncheires?>>47784
What's the DC for tying someone else's shoes together?
I just want to know if he'll allow it. I could always make the hat now, and enchant it later
"Yes, I believe it's on Fae's bags. I placed most of Kiynen's horde in it, so hold on while I get it and remove those items"
I think it's only armor that can have Shadow.
…But if not, I'll gladly load Tracy up with magick socks, panties, garters., etc.
Depends on the circumstances. Is one hiding under their table at a noisy tavern? Is it on a barren street while the person is busy heading somewhere or other?>Hecatoncheires
Which part?>>47789>not dimensional
Yes they are>>47785>excited dwelf noises
*carefully hides items in room's dresser drawers, placing books about Football and Income Tax over top to deter Tracy from rummaging*>>47790>covering up a pony with panties
*Is now wondering what is going on*
The part about the blood-forged weapons.
Is deity blood a special material for craft? Refer to:>>47417 →
I was wondering if Tracy could use Kefka's body parts to make a special weapon later on, because that monster description implied that it had properties that made it deadly to some monsters.
I thought it'd make a great tempering fluid for an awesome mace or sword.
>>47792>talks about sharing loot
Yeah, I thought about that right after I posted it.
Uh...Tracy can buy horses with some of it I guess
I'm in no hurry.
Just don't get bent out of shape if I want to take other things.
First off, they're not immune. Heca,... those things regenerate against any weapon other
than blood-forged or Good-aligned weapons. For two, those things are OP AF. I'm a little astonished that someone bothered to create them and then
make them official.
Having said, maybe but IDK. Its not something I expected to have to consider.>>47792
Several things. Currently Thez is wearing a simple monk's fighting outfit (a Gi, for the martial artists in the periphery). As a monk, she takes penalties if she wears armor or is otherwise encumbered, but an article like a robe can be utilized without penalties. For two, Thez is a knob about some things, and is planning for carrying all the material components (that she doesn't need) that she'll need as a sorcerer.
Um, okay. What's the rating on her amulet of the mighty fists, and/or does she have an extra lying around?>>47796>If I want to take other things
The only reason I thought to hide it was because of the possibility that all of it
would fall in the "I take things I don't actually want just because klepto"
Since it's the blood of a Chaotic Ebil demigod, I thought it'd make for a ebin murder-mace, maybe with specific powers, if I can find the time for her to work on it.> I'm a little astonished that someone bothered to create them and then make them official. something I expected to have to consider.
Ikr. Epin-level monsters are terrifying. Some are even rank-0 deities, like Phaethons, Atropals, or Infernals: all apocalypse-tier.
The amulet is part of her belt and can't be removed, along with the amulet of non-detection. Its an heirloom item associated with mastery of her former/native Monk monastery. She doesn't have an extra, and its +5 (meaning, requiring at least a 15th level caster, and 50 days to fabricate).>>47799
Just one of those - which aren't unique creatures - could easily walk through most of the Infernal lords. Soros would get his ass handed to him for example.
It looks to me like the publications for epic-level monsters, classes and spells were mostly made for high-level campaigns that focused on insane missions, like theomachia or apocalypse-reversal, from what I've gathered. Even the existance of Abominations seems to be put in the game for "let's go kill a literal god" kind of campaigns.
Well, the challenge ratings are based off "The level that a 4-player party would theoretically need to be to vanquish". Hecs are 57th? Absurd. Thez only got where she's at because she spent an excessive amount of time soloing and not sharing xp. I can't imagine ranking 4
players to that point, let alone past it
It has superior multi-weapon fighting, and it has a hundred arms
. Nothing but an actual god of war, with 50 ranks in Fighter (maybe, if he's lucky) could best it in combat.
It's based off of those mythical ancient greek primordial giants who lived before the gods or even the titans: they could tear mountains in two with their strength.
It's based off of dark and elder things alright, but I don't think Greek mythology is the closest comparison
The other ebin monsters are freaky too.
An Atropal is like every abortion every woman ever had, coming back for revenge on the living. Infernals eat Balors and Pit Fiends' faces as an afternoon snack. A Phaethon is like a walking nuclear explosion.
>>47804>The Hecatoncheires were giant creatures in Greek mythology. Their name means "hundred - handed ones", and apart from a hundred hands of unfathomable strength, they also had fifty heads.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hecatoncheires
Wait, who's speaking now?
Right. Meaning, the party would pretty much have to have divine rank of their own in order to concern themselves with it, unless it was used as a Deus Ex Machina-type, story that isn't so much vanquished as it is defeated, sealed, cast into other realms, etc. As a looming (pun intended) threat, sure but as a legit fight? I say again, absurd.
According to wiki sources, they're the oldest Abominations: born of proto-deities early in the multiverse's history. They're older than most gods, unlike most other Abominations, who are usually the offspring of gods.
Nobully; it could be Lenos, it could be Anon
filly, it could be Sad Alex, Taylor, or any number of possibilities.>>47809
Again, I'm just seeing something absurd that no reasonable party could/would ever think of actually trying to kill, and if they are
I question their creativity as players and that of the GM, as well as the authenticity and legitimacy of their campaign desu.
We were talking about God-granted quests earlier; this is a God quest
>>47808>party would pretty much have to have divine rank of their own in order to concern themselves with it
Yeah. It looks like a challenge for a team of Divine Minions, with Epic Prestige classes.>>47810>God quest
Do you mean God Quest as in instant-Geas, or God Quest as in "prove yourself!" ?
I mean a quest for Gods
Yeah, and not just rank 1-5 demigods like Kefka; actual gods.
For you:Nyarlathotep . . . the crawling chaos . . . I am the last . . . I will tell the audient void. . . .
I do not recall distinctly when it began, but it was months ago. The general tension was horrible. To a season of political and social upheaval was added a strange and brooding apprehension of hideous physical danger; a danger widespread and all-embracing, such a danger as may be imagined only in the most terrible phantasms of the night. I recall that the people went about with pale and worried faces, and whispered warnings and prophecies which no one dared consciously repeat or acknowledge to himself that he had heard. A sense of monstrous guilt was upon the land, and out of the abysses between the stars swept chill currents that made men shiver in dark and lonely places. There was a daemoniac alteration in the sequence of the seasons—the autumn heat lingered fearsomely, and everyone felt that the world and perhaps the universe had passed from the control of known gods or forces to that of gods or forces which were unknown.
And it was then that Nyarlathotep came out of Egypt. Who he was, none could tell, but he was of the old native blood and looked like a Pharaoh. The fellahin knelt when they saw him, yet could not say why. He said he had risen up out of the blackness of twenty-seven centuries, and that he had heard messages from places not on this planet. Into the lands of civilisation came Nyarlathotep, swarthy, slender, and sinister, always buying strange instruments of glass and metal and combining them into instruments yet stranger. He spoke much of the sciences—of electricity and psychology—and gave exhibitions of power which sent his spectators away speechless, yet which swelled his fame to exceeding magnitude. Men advised one another to see Nyarlathotep, and shuddered. And where Nyarlathotep went, rest vanished; for the small hours were rent with the screams of nightmare. Never before had the screams of nightmare been such a public problem; now the wise men almost wished they could forbid sleep in the small hours, that the shrieks of cities might less horribly disturb the pale, pitying moon as it glimmered on green waters gliding under bridges, and old steeples crumbling against a sickly sky.
I remember when Nyarlathotep came to my city—the great, the old, the terrible city of unnumbered crimes. My friend had told me of him, and of the impelling fascination and allurement of his revelations, and I burned with eagerness to explore his uttermost mysteries. My friend said they were horrible and impressive beyond my most fevered imaginings; that what was thrown on a screen in the darkened room prophesied things none but Nyarlathotep dared prophesy, and that in the sputter of his sparks there was taken from men that which had never been taken before yet which shewed only in the eyes. And I heard it hinted abroad that those who knew Nyarlathotep looked on sights which others saw not.
It was in the hot autumn that I went through the night with the restless crowds to see Nyarlathotep; through the stifling night and up the endless stairs into the choking room. And shadowed on a screen, I saw hooded forms amidst ruins, and yellow evil faces peering from behind fallen monuments. And I saw the world battling against blackness; against the waves of destruction from ultimate space; whirling, churning; struggling around the dimming, cooling sun. Then the sparks played amazingly around the heads of the spectators, and hair stood up on end whilst shadows more grotesque than I can tell came out and squatted on the heads. And when I, who was colder and more scientific than the rest, mumbled a trembling protest about “imposture” and “static electricity”, Nyarlathotep drave us all out, down the dizzy stairs into the damp, hot, deserted midnight streets. I screamed aloud that I was not afraid; that I never could be afraid; and others screamed with me for solace. We sware to one another that the city was exactly the same, and still alive; and when the electric lights began to fade we cursed the company over and over again, and laughed at the queer faces we made.
I believe we felt something coming down from the greenish moon, for when we began to depend on its light we drifted into curious involuntary formations and seemed to know our destinations though we dared not think of them. Once we looked at the pavement and found the blocks loose and displaced by grass, with scarce a line of rusted metal to shew where the tramways had run. And again we saw a tram-car, lone, windowless, dilapidated, and almost on its side. When we gazed around the horizon, we could not find the third tower by the river, and noticed that the silhouette of the second tower was ragged at the top. Then we split up into narrow columns, each of which seemed drawn in a different direction. One disappeared in a narrow alley to the left, leaving only the echo of a shocking moan. Another filed down a weed-choked subway entrance, howling with a laughter that was mad. My own column was sucked toward the open country, and presently felt a chill which was not of the hot autumn; for as we stalked out on the dark moor, we beheld around us the hellish moon-glitter of evil snows. Trackless, inexplicable snows, swept asunder in one direction only, where lay a gulf all the blacker for its glittering walls. The column seemed very thin indeed as it plodded dreamily into the gulf. I lingered behind, for the black rift in the green-litten snow was frightful, and I thought I had heard the reverberations of a disquieting wail as my companions vanished; but my power to linger was slight. As if beckoned by those who had gone before, I half floated between the titanic snowdrifts, quivering and afraid, into the sightless vortex of the unimaginable.
Screamingly sentient, dumbly delirious, only the gods that were can tell. A sickened, sensitive shadow writhing in hands that are not hands, and whirled blindly past ghastly midnights of rotting creation, corpses of dead worlds with sores that were cities, charnel winds that brush the pallid stars and make them flicker low. Beyond the worlds vague ghosts of monstrous things; half-seen columns of unsanctified temples that rest on nameless rocks beneath space and reach up to dizzy vacua above the spheres of light and darkness. And through this revolting graveyard of the universe the muffled, maddening beating of drums, and thin, monotonous whine of blasphemous flutes from inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond Time; the detestable pounding and piping whereunto dance slowly, awkwardly, and absurdly the gigantic, tenebrous ultimate gods—the blind, voiceless, mindless gargoyles whose soul is Nyarlathotep.
I'll be back tonight, if anyone is still on. Later my dudes
Im gonna need a bigger strength bonus.
I want to grapple a rank 5 deity.
Gib Tracy the corpse when you're done.
Infernius should've been Strength Domain, desu.
Nice, smart Snek
Funny story! Apparently I was supposed to work this morning, but due to a miscommunication (rather, my lack of seeking confirmation) I got my first no-call, no-show of my whole LIFE today,.... Also I'm back for the duration (weekend).
>>47825Fug... Sorry, m8..
>>47825I can imagine how much that sucksI wish I had a job...
>>47826Its actually not a big deal. I'm on light duty or injury, and I have an absolutely spotless record otherwise (in 3 years I've called in once) and my boss knows it, and lack of communication has never even been a consideration. In fact, while I've neglected it in recent months, I used to have a monthly e-mail correspondence with my boss just because I have serious social anxiety but am full of emergent ideas, many of which have helped to improve and shape aspects of the company's position and performance. For example, I introduced him to Simon Sinek, which has had a tangible impact (I wonder if corporate and foremen might have gone to one of his seminars?) on the overview of the company. I can get away with it scot-free in this case because I'm the fukkin' man at my job
Ill give you what i cant eat.>>47828
Red pill your boss.
I'm working on it, but this is an ultra-rural community that doesn't take kindly to anyone who isn't a 3rd+ generation of the "hooplah" family.
Oh, don't even get me started, its part of my diabolical 1488 scheme. Major cities are largely lost. Its largely (only?) by fomenting the awareness and
viability (economically, socially, etc.) of smaller communities that the white race has any chance at all desu. These are communities that its not too late to redpill on muslims
(not exclusively) and who havve EVERY incentive to avoid and act against further decay of the US.
Will we be playing tonight?
Tracy feeds her birds again.
They're getting kinda big. They're about 12' sitting down, (cuz there's not much mass to the legs) and they're beginning to show coloration. One (I forget the name at the moment and I'll lose focus if I look it up, but its within the theme) is beginning to show an almost fluorescence, trending toward violet or blue.
"Who's a pretty ~birdie?"
*gently pets fluff*
They were named Sammy and Bunny.
They show the dopiest enthusiasm before Tracy even enters the room. They can't smell or "specifically" detect that its Tracy, but there's a consistency to her presentation. Preceeding Tracy's arrival would be a series of incredibly minute details that would otherwise go unnoticed to a conscious biped (read: hooman) but which animals take to readily. This is why I contest the intelligence scale wrt animals, but I digress. I do admit that there is a significant possibility that atypical stats, behavior, intelligence, etc. that is observable IRL animals might not exclusive to "player" interaction. Simply, I've always observed highly intelligent dogs, cats, etc. Having said, I have always (almost) observed them amongst exceptional individuals.
>>47834>tfw when no QT 3.14 aryan gf
So each of those birds which Tracy got for free are not only able to almost equal Fae in one on one combat, but they're magic beasts as well?
Dont even starr bro. Some of us Dont have any animal companions
And you got fae for free.
Tracy dumps out out her bag of ground elephant meat a lightly-cooked egg yolks and watches happily as they eat, with a slight blush about her cheeks.>>47843>magical
No. Rocs are animals. You're thinking of Giant Eagles.
GM just thinks animals are smarter than the game-makers give them credit for, and is building character in their subtle responses.>>47844
Go talk to your doggo.
A Paladin's mount is an essential feature of the class, and a Dragonne is a CR 7 with 19 strength, whereas a Roc is a CR 9 with 34 strength and is two size categories larger with corresponding increases in damage
I probably cant. The juice are blocking hitler.
Not hardly. They're dopey, clumsy, and awkward. They're a liability in combat. But they are cute, if not ginormous.>>47842
Desu, my mate is not aryan. She is
of royal, "pacific" ancestry though. Xp>>47845>doggo
This. If I wanted to be authentic, he'd have pissed and shit on everything cuz "is he even let outside?". Mental note, have Bones check on him 3x a day, just in case.
What Infernius now has is a tiny dog that 'almost' pees its self whenever he shows up, but doesn't know how to calm down.
>>47845>Go talk to your Doggo
This. Alejandro Menendez-Alvaro needs attention
The standard mount for a paladin is a heavy warhorse: you got an upgrade. She even speaks common and as class levels.>>47847
Try Commune With Nature.
Then see if he's worth Awakening.
Don't give animals names they can't remember. His name is Sparkle.
I dont think you understand the kikes are blocking hitlers powers i dont even know how i can still use healing magic.
>>47853>kikes are blocking hitlers powers
Since when? You were able to break Thez's petrification.
They're not blocking his power, they're blocking his communication.
Gm said they were.
True, but she's still only CR10ish after features, not a match for two CR 9s>names they can't remember
Oh please. Alejandro Menendez-Alvaro is easily remembered
>>47857>not a match
It's not a contest.
Why wouldn't they block his powers too?
When did this start?
Because I had dubs for one. For two, because Hitler is too awesome and undeniable. His blessings cannot be blocked by kikes, even if his words might be suppressed.>>47860
This started back when I was first called to speak for the Fuhrer and balked cuz mein deutsch ist schrect and cuz I don't feel I could accurately portray him as a god.
Just go have hot shower sex with your waifu like your God commanded you two then feed your dog some tacos
Id take a Celtic girl desu, when you say Pacific do you mean asian or islander?
What does the other one look like?
We both know what he meant m8.
Can we get some info out of Kang Doot now?
I'm not Hitler in this case, but some showers 'glitter'. Just a random interpretive thought.>>47864Islands ftw>>47865
Slightly pink desu
Stop with the cocky attitude to hermeneutics and go now!
Very tropical. Like the birds of Eden.
They are going to end up deep blue and red-pink when they get older.
It'll be beautiful
Not intentionally, but metaphysically so distantly related.>>47872
I'm not opposed to tropical Rocs. It fits their theme.
Unfortunately he's not on at all at the moment. He was on earlier today though>>47874
Wrong. Just, wrong. Rocs are cold weather animals and anything else just ain't right
>>47877>Rocs are cold weather animals
Did you read the Legend Of Sinbad? They would've lived around the Indian Ocean.
But they lived in high up mountains, which would be cold
I know you are trying to do damage control and all but could you stop being disengenous and say they truth?
I mean i already know that hitler wants infernuis baby dead.
Then I guess it's just magick then.
Nah, it's because the plumage if the younger animals is lighter than that of mature adults>>47880
Oh hush. He only commanded her to take a shower? Has she even showered once thus far? Hell, I should probably take a shower
You could cast Augury to get the correct interpretation.
You also have that Phylactery of faithfulness.
Atlas would need to be online for that.
But would a god be kind of annoyed if a mortal asked him questions about a command he already gave him?
Most likely. But ....
God's don't like having to say things twice...
It's scary when they're angry...
There's a reason Atlas delegated most duties to his Admins (who are always on)
Tracy brushes her birds, cleaning the dirt and whatnot out of their downy fluff.
>>47877>discord-fagging this hard>>47890
No Kang Doot info. Attempting to read/meld with his mind result in momentary insanity for the person. Comprehension spells are ineffective.

Where are the characters?
Where is your character?
>>47898>This spell does not affect a corpse that has been turned into an undead creature.
If we can't get anything else out of Kang Doot, can we make another crawl?
Well fuck. I take the kangs clothes/wrappings.
Tracy has his arms already.
Taking his skull.
I found it on (((Google))).
So i just found a video that shared some very disturbing info.
Im probably going to make a thread on it.
I never asked what Int bonus Tracy's headband gave her.
*fills body with chocolate ice-cream*
Give me about thirty minutes.
GM, could I decrease crafting time with memes?
No, but you could decrease XP cost of spells.
>>47918>>47917>The players are more interested in arts and craft than murder-hoboing
Could you refer to >>47912
It's more murder-farming, desu. We haven't really moved around that much.
I still wanna know what effect triggering the dust would do
Why do you like item making more than fighting?>>47923
He already told us. It would kill us, and destroy any loot
It wouldn't be good
Thanks for the great description m8
There would be a flash explosion, which could possibly destroy items worth taking, would alert bigger dangers to our presence, and could destroy the mechanisms to operate the door at the end of the hallway
>Skills: For each skill in which either the master or the familiar has ranks, use either the normal skill ranks for an animal of that type or the master’s skill ranks, whichever are better.

So, what does this mean?>>47930
Ah, that clears it up.
Where is everyone?
I realized I haven't been applying Tracy's Int modifier to any of her Search checks.>>47931
Tracy is on her way to the entrance of the temple.
I guess Torc heads there too
Looks like the party is here then.
Torc, did you ever consider using Illuminati cards for memes?
Considering I have neve heard of them before now? No
Classic /pol/ meme.
They predict the future.
What company made theese? Where they chosen or bad goys?
Fug, I'm passing out at the keyboard.
You okay? We can break for tonight if you want
Found an idea for an Ebil Goddess.
[1d20+27 = 31]>>47954
Trumpaladin stares down pony, believing she has dark secrets
Sense motive, cause what else would you do while staring?
She's looking for shards of glassteel to make custom shanks.
*continues staring down pony, because what else can he do while GM isn't here*
"I KNOW YOUR SECRETS PONY!", Trumpaladin loudly Shitposts
"Infernuis want your opinion on suits."
"Looking to join us refined professionals are you? What do you want to know about suits?"
Trumpaladin may need to summon a nice goddess to counter her
Glimmer is neither nice nor a goddess. You don't just "summon" gods either.
Also>Implying making the Port a battlefield between two deities would do anything but kill us all
"Why people wear them? And do we have suit maker in town?"
"I think it's mostly a hoo-man thing. Only a handful of stallions ever wore them in Equestria."
"It's a signal of professionalism, of refinement. Of belonging to the higher classes, be ye businessman, intelligentsia, or other professional. But besides this, it's stylish, reasonably comfortable, and wears well under a variety of outdoor temperatures.
If there is no tailor, I'll make my own factory">>47968
"Only the most stylish and refined ponies, of course"
"I must say it feels rather nice."
[Happy pony noises]
*Purrs in pony*
"I've noticed you're rather fond of my slacks..."
*shakes leg lightly*
"Me want nice hugo boss suit."
"It's what's underneath that really counts.* *Rubs leg*
"Did you ever consider being a nudist like? I find clothing to be rather oppressive, so I only wear it on occasion."
"Excellent choice. May I ask what prompted your decision to seek formal attire?">>47975
*looks at pony, unsure of what to say at first*
"Clothing is a signal of your position within society and your relation to it. That's why even ponies wear it sometimes. It's not that I don't want to show off what underneath"
"Isn't that what cutie marks are for?"
"Cutie marks are similar, but clothing also marks occasions and earned rank"
*rubs cute little pony cutie marks, which seems to have evolved slightly from a "Vampire's Kiss" appearance, to a more refined "Lord of War" Cage"
"Well me want to look nice for thez"
"D'aww. A suit can do that. You always want to look your best when taking the girl to the dance - or carrying her across the threshold"
Or so it's changed in his mind
"Brad,thez is planning wedding,me want to invite you and tracy."
[sad pony noises]
"... I want us to have our wedding soon ~too..."
"D'aww, thanks. What are you planning?">>47983
*picks up pony, and cradles her in his arms*
"You'll get a wedding too, little pony"
"Thez say something about a ball."
*holds pony close to self*
"A ball you say? Now that could work"*makes note to self to try to do something grander*
Torc somehow finds his way to the rest of the party, with Mr. Snek following close behind.
"Anyone wanna make a quick trip to Gnome-land-ia in the morning? I need to teleport over and make an order before we attempt the temple again."
"Why though? We've got a dungeon to crawl"
"Make it soon.. our foal will be here in just a few months, and I want to be settled in long before that."
*Faggot goes to bed*
"I need a new cannon for my ship. That way if anything too big comes out, we shoot it.">>47989
*contemplates how it would look if waifu is visibly pregnant in wedding photos*
"That is a good point">>47990
"You have 13 functioning ones though, besides our collective power and all. Can't it wait?"
"They must be intwined or something, cause if I turn the lever while one's broken they all suffer the same fate. And who knows what that would do to the ship."
"You can't just remove the one from the sequence and bypass it, allowing the other 13 to function?"
"It will be yuge.">>47987
"You want me to go?">>47989
Torc shakes his head
"Not as far as I'm aware, gnomish shit is hard. I don't understand why it's such a big deal. I have... acquaitances that should be able to get the plans to a smith. I'll I'd have to do is bring a sketch of the cannon and drop it off.">>47995
"If you'd like."
"I mean, it's not like we killed four lichs two days ago and all four will respawn within a few days if they haven't already. It's not like Dimensional anchor has a limited period of time it's active, and it's not like we've got a hell of a lot more rooms to clear before we get to the center of the nest. By all means, take your time. Do your shopping now. The enemy will be grateful"
"You have point.">>47996
"Can we wait untill after invasion? Or is it urgent?"
"I guess it could wait, but we won't be able to do any further damage to the temple. No new access points if needed."
"Infernius, when this city was attacked, it was attacked by a wide number of varieties of undead with four lichs visibly leading. It was organized by someone larger, more powerful, with many underlings. Thus far in the Pyramid we have encountered Allips, varg-thingies, wraiths, and what seemed to be an independently acting mummy lord. We haven't yet encountered even the beginning of who organized this attack. But don't think for a moment their leaders are not in there.
How long do you think it will be before they realize we've penetrated their citadel - they probably already have. Do you think that maybe they are just waiting until sunset - and sun light is toxic to many undead - to lead a forary into town to terroize and kill? Do you think they may come up with the idea to set a trap for us in the pyramid? How long do you think it will be before one of them realizes that all they have to do is get a high level spell caster to cast "dispell magic" to break the dimensional anchor and teleport away from us. Unless of course, they want to be in the harbor
. Time is of the essence"
"We know who is behind attack,the kikes."
"We know that they are organized. And an organized enemy, is a dangerous enemy. Very dangerous"
"They clever so they probably know we are here. They most likely set traps already."
"We must go in and kill them, before they have the chance to kill us and all of the aryan race. We must release mankind from this curse, and soon. Be strong. Be clever. And above all, act quickly. Because they will be"
"Is this the part where I ask not what my country can do for me, but what can I do for my country?"
"That's the spirit!
Perchance do you want to wear a cloak of resistance? It can help protect you from curses and effects many of these undead have."
"Considering I don't really feel like dieing again? Sure, thanks Trump."
"Protection of the entire white race is my priority. Not just tge aryans."
"Me wish torc was still here."
"here you go"
*hands a cloak of resistance to Torcuil, since there are like two that haven't been used*>>48009
"That's the spirit!">>48010
"You can almost hear him at times..."
"I'm quite literally standing right next to you">>48011
"STOP TELLING PEOPLE I'M DEAD"
"Oh Danny boy the pipes the pipes are calling
From glen to glen and down the mountain side..."
"Me just wish me could see him one more time."
"I fucking swear, I'm rig-
Nevermind, lets try this."
Torc grabs Snek, turning him into a staff and smacks Infernius with it.
*scratches area that got smacked*
"Me hate mosquitos."
"I do too...
I'm gonna miss the little wanker">>48016
"I do too... Tell me if you need me to cure a disease. I'd hate to lose another..."
*starts sobbing again*
"I sometimes really hate you both"
*hugs imagined representation of his lost comrade*
"I hate you too buddy" *sniff* "I hate you too"
Alright. Because Snek would be neither rigid nor would his body weight be localized during a "Snek strike", I'm thinking that it would be ineffective as a melee attack, but would
allow Snek to grapple as a free action upon contact.>>48010
"Did something happen to him?"
"If only torc would have used higher quality memes mayve he would still be with us."
"He dead remember thez?"
"You guys are fucking impossible.">>48020
I'll accept that
"They think I'm dead">>48021
"YOU GUYS ARE THE ONES WHO DIDN'T NOTICE ME DYING ON THE FLOOR"
"Yeah, and then he was back like 2 minutes later. I mean, did he die again?"
"Yes. He also died when a mummy cursed him..."
"He never come back thez, he dead."
"That gust of wind just now, it sounded loke a bitch."
"I know, I watched it happen. It was tragically comical. But then he was back alive again.">>48026
"Is this some kind of joke?"
"To them it is, and I don't appriciate my death being called 'tragically comical'"
*leans in to thez*
"Go with it."
"I heard that you bitch"
"I didn't know he'd failed his saving throw...
I don't think it's comical. Him getting mauled to death by a special mount was comical, but losing him in battle..."
"Did you hear that brad? The wind had a voice on it."
"Like dust in the wind"
I can always shoot the two fuckers if they keep ignoring me.
Thez looks at Trump and Infernius, and then at Torcuil. "I've no idea what they're on about. It was
funny though. One minute you were sitting there inspecting part of the room, the next minute you were on the floor disintegrating into sand. I mean, if we didn't have an entertron I'd be devastated! But as is,....">>48030
"Sorry, my Bluff skill is shit."
I need sleep, so this is where I part for the
aw fuck it's morning.
See you faggots later
"Thez me get suit for wedding"
*growls in draconic*>>48037
Love you, and see you later
Later. Sorry I bailed earlier
"A suit?" She thinks for a moment. "I can't say I've ever seen you wear clothes before, its hard to imagine."
"Me want to look me best for you on big day."
"Then why a suit? Why not rhinoplasty?"
"Heh good one."
"So what kind of suit? A duck suit? A swim suit?"
"A nice German made suit."
"So a suit, or a uniform
? I understand Hugo Boss designed the nazi uniforms,...."
"Both. Um thez how do you feel about me still being Nazi?"
She shrugs. "I don't really have an opinion about it. I've been reading more of Rockwell, and I highly approve of his position thus far."
"Um thez will you teach me to read?"
"Rockwell is best."
She gasps at this, covering her mouth with both hands. "You mean,... but don't you carry around Mein Kampf? You carry Hitler's word but can't,...." her eyes get watery "You really are insufferably adorable. Consider it my main "intervening period" activity," she says, hugging him tightly around the abdomen.
"Thez me glad me met you."
She continues to hold him, murmuring softly before saying, "Naturally."
"Thanks," she mutters softly, and not in a sarcastic or shitposting tone.
*picks up thez*
"You want lay down with me?"
Her eyebrow twitches. "Do we have
to lay down tho?"
"We dont have to just lay down."
"Heeeeeee," she intones with a hint of lewdness to her voice.
Its pretty obvious where its going from there. "One quick question. Do you like me better with
scales, or without?"
"Me like you gray. It hot."
"I was more asking about texture than pallor."
"Scales did feel nice."
"Good to know," she says smiling and booping him.
*boop of opportunity*
"Thez how would you feel if me turned into earth pony?"
She mutters something about him being trans now.
"Just kidding. Seriously, I don't know. Wouldn't that limit the number and types of items at your disposal?"
"Meh it just idea me have floating around for awhile."
"You're not gonna try for Paladin Mount too are you?" she teases.
And they did fug.
Infernius is the cutest.
Just fyi, Paladin is a prestige class in unearthed arcana:https://dnd-wiki.org/wiki/Publication:Unearthed_Arcana/Prestige_Paladin
Not as great as the base class, but you'll get everything you want out of it. You don't get paladin spells, but it advances in the spells of your current divine spellcasting class (cleric).
You have to have mounted combat, and a few other skill ranks though.
>>48076You get the horse at lvl 2.
M8 it's fine.>>48075
[1d20+24 = 38]
Well Idk what Tracy's Int modifier is with her headband, but I'll make a Search check, to gather-up those remaining shards of glass from when the temple was blown open.
>Infernius as my Paladin's mount
He's going to be Thez's familiar.
>>48084>tfw this party is just one big orgy of cohort haxx
Reeeee! I want him!>>48085
We have other firms of haxx as well
I deleted it because I realized it wasn't as good as it seemed at first.
Although, looking at the canon writings, there's no restriction on falling, and then taking the prestige class and then falling again to get the falling benefits two-fold.
Yeah, bullshit character development. I just thought the extra Sneak Attack was sexy. I don't have the patience to be LG for even one level anyway.
On that note, you have to be able to cast protection from ebil too.
Just don't go out of your way to be lol ebil
Will we be ready to crawl today?
That reminds me. Part of the reason that enemies are always coming to you (the party) is because exploration has been less feasible. The Tower is slow AF, and going on foot or flying/running on air is exhausting and inefficient. Additionally, this particular set of encounters (the pyramid etc.) is a consequence of escaping Court City without burning it to the ground desu. Lastly, its my job to find a way to rob the party of any peace that I can, and I shall do my duty.
Frankly I don't recall a headband. Could you remind me?
Embrace the hax>>48096
I should be around for the rest of the day
She got a headband of intellect in that chest before the party left to find Infernius (I was greedy and asked for an ebin headband, but ebin because that's too haxx)
. I just never asked what the Int bonus was (+2, +4, or +6), because I've been a massive idiot and haven't been applying her Int bonus to Search checks and whatnot.
Also, how much glass did she collect? The hole in the temple is big enough for Tracy to walk through at full size, so there had to be a lot of shards.
Nope, its like safety glass, tiny pebbles. And I'm not just saying that cuz I don't want to worry about what Tracy would do with ebin glass pieces.
Well exploration should be easier now cause airship.
Actually, I think Torc is the most traveled of the party.
>>48106>I don't want to worry about what Tracy would do with ebin glass pieces
Glue the pieces together to make an ebin glass sword, of course, like in Skyrim.
I guess I'll just have her blow another whole in the temple later...
*collects tiny pebbles in sack*
Precisely. By the way, Torcuil had previously disengaged the faulty cannon from the mechanism on the ship. There's only one volley remaining though.
Oh so I could still fire volleys, okay.
How does it reload?
By turning the mechanism. The ejection, reloading, and firing of the cannons is all mechanically integrated to the hand-crank. It was designed so that a person could obliterate any aggressors without putting their drink down.
And that means we're almost out of shells...
I take it gnomes have the power to make more?
Glass hammer could be useful too though.
*meticulously gathers pebbles into one giant sack*
Also, the reason that the airship cannons are the only thing that can damage the glassteel is because A: the walls are thick AF, and B. because they fire at a much higher velocity than standard cannons or the employed magics. Glassteel is remarkably temperature-resilient, quickly diffusing any extreme irregularities.
Tl;dr You gotta use armor piercing rounds.>>48114
Axes or maces would be the easiest to make, given the size of the particles.
>>48116>you gotta use armor peircing
What about armor peircing, that explode? HEIAP
Talk to the Gnomes>>48108
It might work as a Maquahuitl
We have some Sovereign Glue, so I guess a glassteel mace or hammer could be made over the course of a couple days.
Would the Make Whole
Spell be able to fuse particles together?
Also, Since it's only half as heavy as steel, could Tracy make a Yuge-sized hammer and still wield it without penalty?
You mean like those Mayan sword-clubs?
Good thinking, but not in this case. The damage results in both warping and melting of the glass, in addition to being reduced to fine pieces.
>>48119I desire a glassteel claymore. I will discover da wey to make one, one day.>>48121
You need ebola to Kno de wey
Well, I'll have Tracy make the hammer first. Then I'll see if she can use that to break other chuncks off later on.
How long has this Dimensional Lock been set? It should last at least 2 weeks.
1 day per caster level, so 16 days total. I'd say its probably been 5 days, without looking back.
Good to hear.
Is anyone else here atm?
I've been here, if anyone's wondering
It was set at night, then we had the day with the Pirates, and then the day it was penetrated and the mummies fought
I am totally not here
Didn't you go through a period where you were repairing the city and whatnot?
I don't believe so. I cannot imagine prioritizing repairs over destroying the phylacteries of three lichs
So the town is still destroyed?
Yeah, you would never do that
The only significant damage to the Port was at the main gate. The undead focused on attacking the ppl, not the structures.
The town is less damaged than it was in the demonic invasion since the brothel was the only area inside of the town that was firmly penetrated, and since fires were not started
Let's just wait for Infernius.
How thick are the walls of the temple?
E X T R A T H I C C
What are you thinking? e_e
>>48140.... I was estimating how many cubic feet of precious glassteel pebbles would've been dumped into the temple from a hole that was 16 by 16 ft...
I'm gonna guess, a lot of them.
Anyone want another hole for entry?
Svae it for later. I might want to target the edge of the hole, to see if bigger chunks could come off.
Yeah I was kinda thinking that too
Plenty. More than can be carried effectively by one person (or pony).
Tracy dumps the sacks off gravel in her bag of holding and saddlebags,m and makes rounds to her room as she waits for Infernius to arrive.
Oh hush, the hole isn't really that big. Tracy's faggottry is just taking the "16 feet" mention to seriously
Why you exaggerate even things like carrying capacity?
>>48150>A light load for a cauchemar is up to 612 pounds; a medium load, 613–1,224 pounds; and a heavy load, 1,225–1,840 pounds.
It's the same reason why she's able to move at full speed while carrying Trumpaladin in heavy armor.
She ain't a cauchenar at at will
>not appreciating smug Daybreaker pics
Let GM decide when she is and isn't.
It was already decided. Months ago. You just refuse to acknowledge it
Then why are you deleting it so incessantly?
Because you go beyond established limits incessantly
It's not your place to enforce rules of this game.
And since when is she not able to transform on her own? She's only at full-power when ridden, but she can still transform.
She's never been able to transform into a 31 strength Cauchemar
on her own
>>48160>Not your place to enforce rules
It's not your place to constantly willfully break them
Carrying capacity is not all about strength.
And regardless, that doesn't excuse you deleting things on your own accord.
Even if she were only as strong as a heavy warhorse, she could still drag 4,500 pounds.
And why do you care so much about what she can carry?
She doesn't have a literal ton of carry capacity and you are not excused for ignoring the limits previously established
>>48166>limits previously established
What limits are you referring to? How were they worded?
I don't need your permission every time she does something.
Actually, that's kind of Tracy's gimmick by now>>48164
Technically, it is in a comparable manner>>48165
Wait, no, that's correct.
Because it's enough that you're evidently being allowed to craft out of glass steel and a very large quantity of it at that, even though it's not a listed weapon making material
It's listed in other publications. I know it's weight and hardness.
If she's even as big as a regular horse, she'd be able to carry most of it back by herself.
It's Tracy's faggot's gimic >>48167
When there's no rules to it it ceases to be a game at all. There's no challenge or strategy or thought to it, just making up new superpowers every hour
Then you don't need cauchemar strength now do you?
You don't decide the rules, so stop acting like you're in charge.
This isn't D&D.>>48173>caliche
You're not in charge either faggot
Neither is "Mythrium", which is what Sugoito is made of,....>>48171
Its not a question of weight, its a question of volume. I suppose it could all fit in the broom closet tho.>>48172
What he means - I assume, cuz its all I'll allow - is that when in full Cauchemar form, Tracy would be able to carry
1400lbs (including Trump), or drag
4200 lbs (with NO carried weight).
In Heavy Warhorse form (agitated/combat) she has appropriate weight limits and such (I'll look it up later), and likewise for base pony form.
Warhorse form is like a berserk rage though, and can't be maintained for a duration.
The penalties for a heavy load are pretty extensive though
I'm not the one who's censoring other players' comments and acting like he's enforcing the rules of the game.>>48177
She can heal exhaustion in the Entertron, can't she? She's just staying productive while Infernius prays or whatever.
I thought Suigoto was Ademantium?
Jesus Christ you could do everything you say you want to just by lowering the airship next to the hole and loading it on the airship
Your imagined powers have seriously harmed your problem solving abilities
An adamantium alloy
I would've liked to make a Shatterspike, if I could figure out how to shape this material.>>48180
I thought of that, but I figured it'd take longer.
Wait, do you mean the hybrid form where she's just a blue horse, or the form where she has a regular nightmare's abilities?
How many forms does she have? As I recall:
Flaming Warhorse form
I put 17 ranks into Control Shape so she could transform at will and have a hybrid shape. I've been operating under the assumption that it was:>pony form>Warhorse form>Cauchemar form (nerfed stats)>Cauchemar form (complete stats)
That's way too confusing. I'm of the mind that since she's had the (((essence))) extracted from her, she loses the nerfed Cauchemar form. She can still catch fire in Warhorse form if she wants tho.
Shit, it may have been 9 ranks, let me find my sheet..>>48186
I've been treating her ability like unnatural lycanthropy thus far.>she's had the (((essence))) extracted from her
When did that happen?
The uhm,... lewd display in the stadium with Trump and Fae,....
>>48186>She can still catch fire in Warhorse form if she wants tho.
Does she still have the projectile smoke cone?
Wait, that had consequences? Reeeeeeee!
Well shoot, now I've got to find new essence...
Yes and she can direct it, but it doesn't conceal her normally.>>48190
Haven't you noticed that lewd has the most
What do those ranks in Control Shape account for then?
>>48191>it doesn't conceal her normally
What's the difference in concealment?
I wish she hadn't lost Soros's leg to the Tarrasque.. Now I have to find another fiend for her to eat...
>Look up D&D Nightmares
>Pictures like this pop up
Reeee! Why can't I look up monsters without being sexually aroused
Being able to still go Warhorse form.>>48193
Before, the smoke naturally occurred around her granting concealment at 5' and 10' (partial/full), but she could also blow smoke at an enemy. Now she can only blow it at the enemy (meaning, she could partially/totally conceal herself from 1-2 opponents, but not all those around her in a circumference). Unless full Cauchemar
Nightmares are really well-built monsters. They're bred for strength and vigor.>>48196
... So she can't use it to pull a Korak and shoot bolts/shurikens from concealment anymore?
Nightmare is for rough sexual>>48197
She could if she blew at the target first. You don't have to have concealment from everyone
to do a sneak attack, just the victim.
*finishes carrying glass*>>48198
Alright. The cone lasts a round, so it should be able to work.
I'll just carry a bunch of smokebombs and drop them all over the place from now on.
Actually, that darkness kunai thing was brilliant
She can see through smoke, but the Darkness obscures even her darkvision, so it's ony good for getaway's, unless I have her take Blindfight..
Dropping an object is a free action, and smokebombs aren't expensive.
Is lighting a smokebomb a swift action or a standard action?
>>48201>Claiming more Sus when you've just been given one that stacks with and makes infinitely more effective a class ability
How is one lighting it?
How is this anything other than letting every single attack in all combat be a sneak attack with a free action?
Its only usable once/round. Best case scenario. she gets an additional sneak attack.
That's an additional at least one sneak attack every single round though.
The boots of the wolf only let you flank once per encounter, and the cape presumably only lets you execute the manuever when you first draw the pistols, so about once per encounter. But this is 9d6 extra damage every single round of any encounter
. 30+ additional damage every single round. For free. With no strategy, just using haxx to exploit a class feature to the etreme.
Smite evil only gives 17 damage per attack, less than half sneak attack damage. And that's limited to 4 uses a day
... shit, I didn't think of that..
How does Ponimaru light his?>>48201
On second thought, that'd look dumb and be retarded...
With a ring of Invisibility, you could Sneak Attack as many times as you wanted.
It's great for killing fiends and undead though.
Can't Sneak Attack the undead at all...
I could ask for an additional 9d6 damage on the first attack in every single round of combat... But what would be the point? You look at an enemy and *poof* they're dead. No strategy, no clever moves. No real chance of dying, being defeated and losing. No sense of accomplishment up winning. No comparing your results to people in other campaigns. Just attack an enemy, and they're dead. Why fight enemies at all?>>48211
Invisibility spell ends when you attack an enemy
>>48213>Why fight enemies at all?
To steal their loot, of course.
And that's another thing. What's the point of loot if what you already have or can make yourself quickly is better than what you can steal? You lose all of the Christmas Morning excitement
Because, you know what you're getting with crafting.
The excitement is getting something you didn't even think about, but can use all the same
What happens to a party memeber's dead body when they reappear in the enteron?
E.G: Trump bleeds out and revives. Does his body *poof* into smoke just leaving gear, or does it stay there?
The good shit doesn't get made quickly. Thez has been waiting since she became hooman (ish) again to unveil her Amulet of Natural Armor. Fuggin' DAYS
>>48215>What's the point of loot if what you already have or can make yourself quickly is better than what you can steal?
The thrill of stealing things, and stabbing enemies.
Also, craft takes weeks, while stabbing is a standard action. Rogues don't have magick either.
There's no thrill of stabbing or stealing if there's no challenge to it and no need for strategy
It either gets eaten by monsters, or liquidated by the rest of the party.
If there's no challenge, keep doing it until you've got moar shekels than you can count. Then spend the shekels on cool stuff that makes it more efficient to kill more people and steal more stuff. Acquire wealth and power.
Oh no, if the bodies stay I have an idea.
That entirely eliminates an entire pillar of the game by making combat meaningless except as money farming. Like why the hell not just lend out money at interest if that is your goal?
You're killing the fun by cheating everything
That's tricky, and its not as simple as you might think. I'd answer more fully, but no spoilers. ^_^>>48224
Don't get robbed again myah,....
I like stabbing things.
The more efficiently I stab, the more I can
stab.>You're killing the fun
You don't have to stab if it's not any fun for you.
>>48224>Like why the hell not just lend out money at interest
Nobody to lend to, and I'd rather spend it on better swag.
Then why do you need haxx like free-action every-round smoke screen>>48227
What swag? All swag is combat based, but the cheats you use for combat just makes it meaningless
I'm sure there will come a point where we can spend money.
The whole Port is still almost broke btw. We still need to get back the shekels that were stolen.>>48228>every-round smoke screen
More efficient stabbing.
[1d20+15 = 16]>>48225
but I had a great idea
In the meantime, Torc decides to step back into hole in the temple while Mr. Snek sneks snek-ily.
Rolling for an archtecture check for hidden shit
Yeah, but why destroy the entire combat pillar of the game when we can have both loot and fun combat?
Welp, tonight is off to such a great
How'd you get 15 in a Knowledge skill as a sorceror? I've been trying to rank-up in Planes knowledge, but i can still only get 8 ranks.
>>48231>destroy the entire combat pillar of the game
Rogues don't play fair.
You met Korak, right? He'd sneak attack with both of his gunz.
Yay! Infernius is here.
Now we can finally get to the crawl.
You're confusing the player with the character. Players should play fair. And that cloak was only effective once per encounter unless he could duplicate the move
I have 12 ranks, extra 3 with int>>48234
Now Torc snek attacks with the guns.
[2d12 = 4]>>48235
Its true tho>>48230
And Torcuil gashes his leg open on broken glass while entering the temple.
The cloak gives increasing concealment since the start of the encounter.>>48238
Can we advance knowledge ranks even if we don't have the skill?
I want to advance planes knowledge to become a Agent Retriever.
Man, thats a real fucked up knowledge
You failed to know where you were stepping.
Have him come to the door so we can start crawling.
You can't use it to hide the guns every single round though, just when you initially draw them
Edge Pone Best Pone
*infernuis crawls to the pyramid*
He's gonna walk in on Torc hopping around on one leg shouting assorted curses about Kefka's mother
Thats Infernuis pone form except hes a stallion.
That's not how the robe works.
Thieves (rogues and Bards) can also use Sleight of Hand checks to conceal their weapons.
With a dagger and a good check, you can Sneak Attack a character right in front of you.
"You haven't an arm, ya haven't a leg, Haroo! Haroo!>>48250
Not every single round of every encounter
[1d20 = 9]>>48250
Sneak attack boop on tracy
[1d20+22 = 24]>>48252
Reeee! Don't boop my pony!
Sneak attack boop on Thez
What was I supposed to do? Have him have an aneurysm?
And Thez <whoooof> appears on scene,... with an unusual thickness to her skin. Its as though she's grown scales over her normal skin, aesthetically different (appearance-wise) but functionally the same as her previous Infernal appearance.
Also Infernius crawls on the scene to be a smartass.
[1d20 = 11]>>48253
Boops brad sentry
>>48252>>48253>all these shitty rolls
It's gonna be a long night
[1d20+22 = 34]>>48255
Oh Yeah! Boop You!
[16d20 = 148]
Thez gets mad.
T> Flurry of Boops
Does... she fumble after the first 1 or does she get in the second critical boop?
It appears that everyone has been machine-gun booped, including a critical boop, before Thez rolled a fail.
Fuzzy spooder ring bonuses, what are they again?>>48254
"Fucking son o' a whore."
Torc then notices Infernius crawling in
"Could you help me">>48258
No, the fail eliminates any further attacks.
Everyone was booped tho.
Does she have that multiple opponent attack feat? Who received critical boopage?
>>48251>Not every single round of every encounter
Where does it say you can't? The robe''s concealment increaeses as the the encounter progresses too. A normal cloak or robe gives you a +4 bonus on Sleight of Hand checks.
So long as you conceal your weapon, your enemy can't properly defend themselves, and are thus denied their dexterity bonus to AC, making them susceptible to Sneak Attacks.
I vote snek or Infernius gets the critical
[1d20 = 9]>>48261
Boops meme magician
*casts heal moderate wounds*
We aren't gonna get shit done at this rate
Dude, its 4 dmg>>48265
Technically, Trump should get it cuz she booped him first (cuz he booped her first) but she likes Infernius better, and would have given him the critical boop. Its not a bad thing.
[1d20+26 = 36]
Tracy goes ahead, making sure to check for traps so the party doesn't get killed.
Search check to look for traps and hidden doors.
Inferius, could you cast Hide From Undead?
[1d20 = 6]>>48264
Yeah, I'm pretty sure it doesn't work that way. I'm too busy booping to write a damned brief on the issue though>>48266>Healing boop
Why didn't I think of that?>>48265
But snek has a different nose, so do you just boop him normally?>>48267
Rolling to Grab Tracy by the pussy, see if that gives a good roll
[1d20+16 = 27]
[1d20+26 = 41]
Trumpaladin detects Evil
Fae: Spot and Listen Check
Staph. Let Tracy go first. She has the stealth and trap sense.
Going ahead then, which way is Tracy going?
The whole place, but nothing immediate from his current position.
I ain't going ahead. This is from the entrance
That's fucking 7% of Torc's health
Does Snek gtt any snek skill points or no? I'm finishing up my char sheets so I'm trying to figure out all my item bonus and shite>>48274
I vote we go right
[1d20+24 = 38]>>48272
Why was this deleted?>>48274
The right path.
Rolling to move Silently.
I vote Right, and door number 2
He can have 20 points to start with. At 1st he'll get the "1st level" remainder. No maxxing.
[1d20 = 6]>>48268
*pinches thez's ass*>>48269
*casts protection from undead or whatever*
So if going down the hallway, the door on the left?
[1d16 = 13][1d20+26 = 31]>>48282
To the place with stairs and where the mummy room was located, but the next door
Trumpaladin follows Tracy with Fae - way behind Tracy
Spot and listen check
Good, cast it on everyone.
So long as we don't attack, undead can't see, hear, or smell us, but they can still sense circumstantial shit, so no horsing around.>>48282
Is the door closed?
Hand slap-slap-slap "Stahp!">>48284
The only door that's opened is the Mummy door.
That works, thanks again GM
>>48281>Scaly fetish stuff
"Scales feel good"
"But sexually arousing?"
[1d20+23 = 25]>>48285
So, Tracy would have to open the door to see what's on the other side?
Search check to examine the door to see if it'd creak when opened.
[1d20+27 = 43]>>48291
Also, trap sense because why not.
Do I add the +4 to the modifier when using Search to look for traps?
Wanna do a detect evil on the closed door first?
That'd take 3 rounds to get anything useful.
Do we not have 18 seconds to spare?
I'm sure it's evil.
"Thez arousing all the time,it dont matter what form she take."
Yeah, but we can tell the number of enemies, direction, and relative strength of enemies at least near the door before opening it>>48297
"But... Scales? Lizards aren't sexy"
Infernius, when your character gets there, could you cast Disrupting weapon on Tracy's sword, so she can actually damage all these zombies? Sneak Attack can't do shit to them.
[1d20+21 = 39]>>48298
Wait for the Roll to resolve.
Listen check, to detect anything on the other side of the door.
*casts disrupting weapon*
Subjective, but scales = rough sex>>48300
Shuffling noises, but nothing particularly onerous.
"Then why you want to fuck dragon?"
"That can transform. So not while it's a dragon"
"Don't listen to him Mr. Snek, someday you'll find a Mrs. Snek who finds you sexy"
>>48305>tongue - thp thp thp intensifies
[1d20+24 = 30]
[1d20+24 = 39]
Sleight of hand check to slowly open the door without it creaking
Hide check to do it stealthily, in case I fuck up somehow (even though they can't see or hear her, because Hide From Undead spell)
[1d20+16 = 23][1d20+26 = 45]>>48305
Trumpaladin: Detect evil
Fae: Spot and Listen
Fuck it. Pull out sword, and activate force shield ring
Stay a few squares back though, and wait until the coast is clear.
Tracy has her cane drawn
Do these char sheets look better? I know I don't have item descriptions I'll get those later.>>48310
Snek readies gun.
Torc activates his shield this time, and prepares his staff of power
Oh Tracy's in front, that's for sure
Tracy opens the door carefully. As it minutely squeaks open, nothing seems to jump out or attack. There are noises, an intermittent series of squeaks and such, but nothing is particularly immediate.>>48312
You mean the sword that sometimes appears as a cane? You mean Korak's Gentlemen's Sword of the High Seas?
[1d20+16 = 21]>>48315
You mean like Mice or like something else?
Fae: Listen check
More like rats desu
[1d20+20 = 25][1d20+20 = 21]>>48315
Yes, that cane-sword.
Spot and Listen check to peer into the door and sense everything inside
Mr.snek wears a top hat?
Tracy made him a hat of Disguise.
[1d20+26 = 33]>>48317
Fae move over and peers into the room over Tracy's shoulder>>48321
When??? You've kept your character insanely busy
Thats adorable desu
Move the lion back. She has no stealth.
Also, it's hard to listen when you have a lion on your shoulder.
Oh she ain't moving into the room. She just has such a high spot modifier she can see invisible shit when it's moving
making him a hat of disguise>>48325
Too late (as usual, none of this is planned, I'm just going off of character actions).>SQUEAK?
Did she Spot anything?
Nah, I'm gonna enchant it with shadow unless those can stack.>>48328
Y u no tell me staff of power gave me +2 to all saving throws?
Cast daylight into room
*charges in to the room*
"IM AN ANTI-SEMITE LOOK AT ME,GET READY TO "BURN"
Don't use fire effects at all
Make Tracy Kneesocks of Shadow, if you can.>>48331reeeeeeee
[1d20+9 = 29]>>48331>>48332
You motHER FUCKERS>>48334
Snek wriggles up to the door and spot checks for Torc
>all these animals breathing down her neck
[angry rogue-pony noises]
Shadows don't have stealth in daylight either>>48337
Fae: *breathes in Draconic*
My only regret is not combining that with a listen check.
Tracy backs away, to let Fae and Snek take the first hit if anything pops out.
Infernuis charged in already
I would say that that's foolish because of Traps and such, but frankly, it's more fun when you play your character that way
Snek is just poking his head in, besides pretty sure Infernius and Daylight are some effective distractions
A shambling mound of squeaking>>48330
The whole room is suddenly lit up with simulated daylight, causing the mound to squeak unceasingly and in multitude.>>48332
And,... Infernius is covered in undead rats>>48335
Snek spots Infernius being an idiot, and being swarmed by undead rats.
Since everyone has already walked up to the door, Tracy steps back and use the distraction to salvage her own stealth.
Rolling to Hide
[1d20+26 = 44]
Trumpaladin casts detect evil and Fae does a basic spot check
[1d20 = 8]>>48345
Turn Undead on the Rats! I don't know what I should roll for but...Rolling
The "shambling mound" comment was supposed to be to this post
Do snakes get a racial bonus against rats?
Gonna go ahead and roll initiative[1d20 = 4]
Snek[1d20 = 7]
Inferius please use the mass healing spell that damages undead
[3d20 = 32]
I set them on fire.
Aww, fine. As the undead rats pour over Infernius and begin to run for the door, frenzied by the sudden daylight in the room,... Trump kills them with a turn. The room is barren except for exploded undead rats, and some horribly (and I do mean that) fetid and rotten household wares (grains, and otherwise anciently spoiled foodstuffs).
Too late, Trump went and compelled them with the power of ChristFootball
[1d20+24 = 43]>>48354
Rolling to Search for anything useful that might not have been apparent at first.
[1d20+26 = 40]>>48354>The room is empty and barren
Fae does a spot check on the room from the door, with a modifier so high she can see moving invisible things with only a 4 dice roll
Trumpaladin detects evil
Search for Traps first
>>48348I found an item for your consideration. Horseshoes of a Zephyr>>48354
Well thats fucking boring
[1d20+20 = 31]>>48358
Tracy Listens, to see if all of that commotion alerted anyone in the other rooms.
>>48359Tracy already has those.
For one, she already has those shoes
For two,... yeah I had hoped to bother the party more with those.
I keep applying the wrong modifier...
No, the miniscule squeaks do not seem to have alerted any other areas to the party's activity.>>48357
NO srsly, its several piles of long-spoiled goods and not much else. Realize, its been fore-fuggin'-ever since this vessel was carrying living cargo.
[1d20+14 = 32][1d20+26 = 33]>>48364
Fae looks down the hallway with spot and listen
Trumpaladin looks into the room... Vessel, you say? What does the room look like its purpose was?
Oh, I feel stupid.>>48364
"Shall we move on?"
Infernuus continues ahead looking for kangz and kikes.
[1d20 = 15]>>48365
For holding food, probably.
Tracy advances down the hallway, a good three squares ahead of everyone to maintain stealth.
Rolling to move silently
Cast Hide From Undead again.
>>48368>Three squares ahead of everyone
Except for Infernius, who is one ahead of her
There's a door at the opposite end of the room, otherwise the party can backtrack to the hallway.
[1d20+24 = 42]>>48371
Tracy approaches it slowly.
[1d20+9 = 21]>>48371
Torc walks up to the door with Snek, and signals for snek to listen through the door
WHY DO YOU NOT LET THE ROGUE DO HER THING FIRST
