This RPG is set in the land of Equestria after it has been conquered and split between the Changelings and a foriegn fascist nation. It is based in large part on the Equestria at War mod for Hearts of Iron 4, and uses D&D 3.5 mechanics

4 of the group have taken a job to clear a site of a future real estate development of undead. They seem to have stumbled upon a centuries old evil long forgotten by Equestria. Meanwhile, Ash has discovered foals from the order of Saint Prancis orphanage practicing dark magic and sacrifices in the woods, while Iron is having not-so-pleasant dreams

The skeleton does not animate. It's dead Onyx

Onyx snorts and walks towards the others.

Spark follows.

"Well, this does not look like ash, at least…" Silver shows the vase and the substance it contains to the others. "What do you all think?"

Dark Star Follows

cfe57 No.76864

"is that salt?"

9f5fa No.76865

Onyx licks the salt looking substance to confirm

8c343 No.76866

It's the most disgusting taste he has ever tasted in his entire life

dbec9 No.76867

Silver gives Onyx a horrified look. "Do not just lick it!"

9f5fa No.76868

But is it salt?

cfe57 No.76869

"Whats it taste like?"

8c343 No.76870

It's a grainy substance that is white. It does not taste like Sodium Chloride, if that is your question

728ae No.76871

Dude, it's salt

cfe57 No.76873

dbec9 No.76874

Silver takes an empty coin pouch from his saddlebag, and fills it with the substance.
"There are better ways to tell what something is other than licking it!"

9f5fa No.76875

Onyx instantly turns un-crystal
Salt gotcha
"Not good…"
Onyx stumbles off and pukes his guys out

8c343 No.76876

When he disturbs the substance, there arises a magical blue aura around it, that starts to coalesce, but does not before it is placed in the coin pouch

9f5fa No.76877

*Guts cause I can't type today
"Yep, that's salt"

dbec9 No.76878

"…Did…any of you see that just now?"

cfe57 No.76879

"i dont believe you."
Dark Star licks it

8c343 No.76880

Absolutely fucking disgusting. Dark Star can be absolutely certain that if he tasted dried Zebra semen, he would enjoy the taste better than what he just put in his mouth

dbec9 No.76881

Silver just stares at Dark Star, having witnessed a new level of stupidity he did not know existed. He feels as if he has become dumber simply by having been party to it.

8c343 No.76882

There is a well in the center of the room, and a small shelf with a single small book on it in the room as well

cfe57 No.76883

cfe57 No.76884

Dark Star pukes in the corner.
"thats definitely not salt."

9f5fa No.76885

My fucking sides

dbec9 No.76886

He diverts his attention from the comedy of errors he has just seen, and goes to the lone book, wondering if, by some miracle, it might have some piece of information to help dispel the mystery of this room.

8c343 No.76888

Opening the content of the book, Silver can see number of chemical equations, a language he does not understand that is probably something like Ponish in short-hand, drawn out plants, and…. Hello. At the beginning of the book is a written note

"Dear Cinnamon Corn,

I have discovered a way of preserving corpses that merits no little attention. By taking a corpse, rubbing it in an herbal and arsenic based solution, and then burning it with the proper spells, any corpse - even one that has been severely degraded, may be turned into a mixture of bone-fragments and arsenic-phosphate salts that may be stored in a simple container. Here is the real magic of this solution - the salt allows the spirit of the deceased to be summoned readily as an apparition, even without Resurrection magic, and then reduced back to a salt just as easily. In this way, you may summon the spirits of the dead even from ancient and decayed corpses

Yours, Joseph Curwhinny

August 6, 762"

dbec9 No.76889

He looks up from the book and towards his companions. "Congratulations! You both just licked bone fragments, arsenic, and dead ponies' souls."

9f5fa No.76890

>More puking

cfe57 No.76892


dbec9 No.76893

Silver pockets the book. While he can't make heads or tails of the equations and the alchemy described in the book, he figures he can take it to somepony who can. With the mystery of the vases and what they contain dispelled, he turns to the final mystery in the room: the well.

cfe57 No.76894

"i think i should go see the nuns after we leave."

dbec9 No.76895

"Hmm? What would nuns be able to help you with?"

cfe57 No.76896

"i feel wrong now."

dbec9 No.76897

"Well, you did just lick remains of somepony."

8c343 No.76898

He can look down the well and see… well, it;s pretty dark. But he can tell that it is a pit that is probably as wide as the room he is in now, with the floor of this room being probably a ceiling for the pit. There are black and brown spots on the floor of the pit. And now here's another feature that should get his attention: A piece of lumber that probably once blocked the door has fallen down it, allowing a sort of connection between the side of the well and the floor of the pit, like it could be climbed up

"You can feel wrong with me if you like"

8c343 No.76899

Silver has this… elated feeling. This feeling of relief. A feeling of a sort of invulnerability. At least two ponies now can never again criticize his choice of diet

728ae No.76900

Me and Spark haven't eaten meat yet, so don't feel relieved just yet

9f5fa No.76901

Depends on what you eat.

dbec9 No.76902

He taps his chin with a hoof, thinking about it. He checks to see how deep the pit is, if there are any good hoofholds on the lumber, and if there is any place good enough to secure some rope.

cfe57 No.76903

was that supposed to be blue?

cfe57 No.76904

puking horse noises

8c343 No.76905

The lumber seems steady enough. The drop is less than 12 feet. As for rope, well, he could probably tie off on what remains of a door frame

8c343 No.76906

728ae No.76907

Pretty sure it is

cfe57 No.76908

dbec9 No.76909

It would actually be kinda funny yet demented if he ended up with the spirit of the pony he licked inside him.
He grabs the length of hempen rope from his saddlebags, and starts tying knots in it to give him some extra hoof holds to help him climb down. "I am going down there."

8c343 No.76910

reee don't give me such ideas

The door frame does not come loose with the first few tugs

cfe57 No.76911

Climb: With a deep breath, he starts his climb down, keeping his horn lit to help him see what's down in the pit.

Messed that up.

9f5fa No.76914

>Less than twelve feet
Onyx jumps, the taste in his mouth making him no longer care about temporary things like life or death.

8c343 No.76915

Silver proceeds down normally. But when he looks around the pit, he finds it to be… Empty. Disappointingly empty. The floors have a black and brown substance covering much of them, and a few halves of rib cages that Silver can identify as belonging to cattle. The walls are a simple brick like the remainder of the room, and have hundreds of knife-like scratches on them

8c343 No.76916

I… Don't think he would take fall damage. The piece of lumber would probably support a climb out. Probably. He sees >>76915

Search: The fur on the back of Silver's neck stands on end: something is off about this room.

8c343 No.76919

It actually smells better than the room above them. Then again, that smell didn't really seem as strong in the room above

Unfortunately, Silver can gather no more information than the following:

The room is just a pit, which ordinarily would not allow anything or anyone in or out except through the well-like opening at the top

There are cattle ribs strewn about on the floor, as well as a couple pebbles, and a black and brown substance

The walls have cuts all over them

The lumber that sits on the floor of the pit and rests on the wall of the opening would allow a pony to climb up and out of the pit, and into the main level

dbec9 No.76920

"We should go. I do not like thought of being down here any more than I have to."

9f5fa No.76921

"I'm just here for the ride"

"we have a job to do."

Climb: He nods, and begins to climb his way back out of the pit using the knotted rope he secured.

8c343 No.76924

The hell is that smell? There it is again

cfe57 No.76925

describe the room we are in.

c7bc9 No.76926

Back for now.

dbec9 No.76927

"Yes, yes, I know, but this is not easy task. We need to search for anything of use to help us."
Silver wrinkles his nose at the smell once he's back out. "Ugh…I am tired of this stench…" He begins following the scent trail to find out what exactly is causing it.

c7bc9 No.76928

Sister Ash maintains a serious but soft voice as she lays out the offenses.

"… Now, you're only foals, so you didn't know better, but if you want to get out of this one you'll have to be very compliant in telling us exactly who set you up on this."
She gestures to the filly who was commanding the hound
"Who taught you those words?"

8c343 No.76929

On two walls are a number of shelves with various jars on them. Most of them look like the "salt" jar, some do not, and appear to contain other chemicals. In the center is the "well" which is the entrance to the pit. On a sort of shelf by the door was the booklet that Silver pocketed, as well as a couple flasks. One wall has chains on it and various restraints, which do not appear to have been used recently

It seems to be coming from the hallway

cfe57 No.76930

DArk Star follow with his guns out
"I hope whatever is making it is dead."

8c343 No.76931

They are entirely silent, and unwilling to snitch. Except for the Rust colored earth pony. He points a hoof straight at the cream colored Pegasus fillie

dbec9 No.76932

He continues to follow it to find its source, readying his hammer just in case.
"In all likelihood? That is probably why it smells."

c7bc9 No.76933

Sister Ash turns towards the fillie her voice calm, but dreadfully stern
".. Just what were you thinking you would accomplish when you brought your friends out into the forest to conjure evil spirits?"

cfe57 No.76934

8c343 No.76939

On the floor ahead of them, illuminated by the flashlight, they see a pony.

Well, "pony" is perhaps a bit generous. The creature clearly was a pony at some point. The lips of the pony are entirely gone from the head. It now has exposed fore-teeth, the natural gap between teeth and the rear molars, giving it a perpetual wicked smile. One eye is entirely missing from its socket, leaving a black hole in the skull. The tongue too, seems missing. A cracked and cataract filled right eye remains and stares at the group, but… with the eye lids entirely missing. One ear has fluff on it, the other is bare flesh. The skull has at points only exposed bone, but most is covered in this dark leathery flesh-like substance that won't quite rot. Ontop of the head is a helmet. The strap goes down underneath the head, and keeps it firmly strapped on.

My Celestia does he smell ghastly… worse than he looks. It's not just the decay of a corpse, it's almost supernatural

The pony wears a uniform. It is a uniform that can be instantly recognized by most as belonging to an Equestrian non-commissioned officer. This uniform covers most of the front of the horse, although it can be seen that further down the rear of the horse the belly seems to be missing some flesh and is likely castrated. He has a belt with a holstered pistol nearer his flank. One forehoof still has a horse shoe, the other hoof is split and sinew is showing. The uniform has a couple tears in it, and some blood, but this pony is missing any sign of a bullet or shrapnel wound, unlike the last two, who were clearly wounded. This pony is wearing a flak jacket, and aside from one long gash it is undamaged. Indeed, you can see from a Los Pegasus campaign medal and a Manehattan campaign medal that this particular pony was quite an experienced soldier of the Empire of Harmony, having fought both the Changelings and New Mareland, and making it all the way to Harmony's last stand. For all of that, the Fascists never slew him

In fact, he seems kind of animated now, clearly capable of movement, probably quick movement. He seems to have seen the group. He lets forth an unnatural "WHOOOOOOOOOOOOORG" that does not seem to belong to this realm

The colt does not want to answer

c7bc9 No.76952

"A hellhound is an evil creature: invoking it is by definition an act of evil. It's not the sort of monster that can be used for good intentions, but only for ruthless violence." She continues accusingly
"So what was it that you all had planned? To have it bite someone? Burn them? Set fire fire to a building?" She demands

8c343 No.76953

Not a lich, just a zombie. Maybe more in the darkness we can't see yet, who knows.

c7bc9 No.76970

"Don't change the subject, young lady. I'll have you know that when I perform my practices, I actually know what I'm doing." She is now holding back her fury, her eyes visibly glowing
Caleb as well bales in disapproval before laying down on the floor.
"And I know better than to go around cohorting with evil spirits. Any sort of evil spirits that accept a measly wounded rabbit as a 'sacrifice' are bound to have ulterior motives in the matter: you should all hope that you're not already cursed!" She exclaims, pointing at each of them

"Now spit it out. What were you planning to do with that monster?"

728ae No.76971

It got a pretty large description for a single zombie tho.

c7bc9 No.76972

If it were a lich, you'd all be dead and reanimated by now.

dbec9 No.76976

Well, I mean, you gotta get in all those juicy details about how revolting the zombie is, and how heinous the actions that have been taken against it to turn it into a zombie were.
This. Liches are no laughing matter. Unless you're playing Dragon's Dogma, in which case liches are laughably easy to deal with.

8c343 No.76977

The Sargent's skin is pretty tough, it seems to bounce off

c7bc9 No.76978

Sister Ash rear and stamps her forehooves into the floor
"Answer the question, young Missy!"
Might be an advanced Ghast or a Wight, or some other kind of higher CR undead creature.

dbec9 No.76979

Is the zombie close enough to hit with a melee weapon without needing to use a move action?

c7bc9 No.76980

If you don't want to use s move action, just charge.

cfe57 No.76981

For the first time since they have been here Dark Star looks worried maybe even afraid.

728ae No.76982

AC is higher than 17! Use touch attacks if possible to bypass it!

dbec9 No.76983

This is the point in the game where I ask "what in the hell is a touch attack?"

728ae No.76984

It's a special property of an attack which bypasses armor class. Mostly magic shooty stuff, I think

c7bc9 No.76985

For you, grapples and trips.

8c343 No.76986

"You want to know? Really? Well I will tell you"
She looks at Rosemary. Not Ash. Rosemary. She narrows her eyes
"You sold us to those monsters. Do you even know what happened to half of us? Do you know what happened to me? Did you know that the little unicorn was almost starved to death?How could you"

She looks back to Ash, and speaks now to her. "My father trusted in the power of Good and Harmony. He told me we would triumph because we were good. When he was killed, they sent me here to these nuns, and they told us that they were good. And the nuns told us that Celestia would win because she was good. And they all told all of us, Lily Breeze, Orchid Blossum…" She is crying now "That the Changelings and the Fascists were evil. Well guess who is still alive! Guess who is still free! If being good means selling children to monsters and being a slave… or dead… Then I chose EVIL!"

No. It can be hit only by means of a move action. Distance 20 ft

I think you are underselling your attack bonus. Although even if it is higher, I think you still would not have landed a hit

dbec9 No.76987

In which case Silver can do absolute jack shit.
Again, Silver can do jack shit. If it's a ghast (and it most likely is), then he matches Silver in dexterity and exceeds him in strength. Odds are, he can't beat the thing if he tries to do either.
Yeah, we're screwed.

c7bc9 No.76988

I should slap this little shit, but I won't.

Sister Ash just stands there fuming (literally) for several moments, not even sure where to start as she dangles the silly filly in the air with her magick
".. How foolishly shortsighted…!" she gasps

She turns to Sister Rosemary with an awkward glance, still unsure how to respond

c7bc9 No.76989

Just charge in and have it to pieces. It's not invincible.

cfe57 No.76990

Thanks for the help, Sis…
Sister Ash takes a deep breath, as the smoke coming from beneath her shawl ceases abruptly.
".. You've been dreadfully misguided.." she begins.

8c343 No.76993

Sister Rosemary adds, finally finding an argument
"you can thank Ash here for your freedom, and that you are still alive. And she is Good"

c7bc9 No.76994

She picks up the filly and levitates her so close that they can feel each other's breath.

"RRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGHH!" An intense rage fills Silver's entire being at the sight of the defiled pony. He charges straight for it, aiming a blow from his hammer right at the creature's head to try to put it out of its misery.

728ae No.76996

That doesn't sound too bad for HP, just two hammer and revolver hits should do it. If it's AC though, you're fucked hard.

Taking on a CR 3 encounter by yourself is worth at least 750, conservatively.

728ae No.77010

Ok, seems it has fullplate as armor, so 18 is the sweetspot where you can hit the beast.
GM decides that.

dbec9 No.77011

That doesn't mean anything to me, as A.) I don't know how much XP tt even takes to level up, B.) I don't have any other enemies to compare that XP amount to, and C.) there's four of us, so we're not going to get 750.

Because Dark Star didn't do squat to it when he attacked, and Onyx isn't actually in the fight. Spark…maybe. He does have magic. But Silver? Silver's going to be the one to die in this case. Both Dark Star and Spark at least have ranged attacks, so they can keep their distance. Silver has to go all in with melee, and looking at these attacks the ghast has? Silver is absolutely fucked. One bite, and it's all over.

I've got an idea for a character, but he would work more as a high-level faction head/quest giver than as a low-level PC.
You underestimate the level of suck I am at this game.
The character I had in mind isn't a skittlebug, nor even remotely similar to the changelings of Greneclyf, nor is she a follower of Chrysalis. Her hive was just one of many that, before Chrysalis came along, looked at ponykind like livestock. They took a mostly Isolationist approach to dealing with ponies. They'd send out "love-collectors" to pose as ponies in various nearby settlements, form relationships with them, and leech off the excess love without them knowing a thing about it. Then, after a few months of collection, they'd return to the hive, deposit the love they had collected, and would take a new identity in a new town. They'd also keep infiltrators in the Equestrian government to get an idea of the going-ons in the world, but other than that the only time they would try to get involved in the dealings of ponykind would be to steer them away from potential disasters. After all, they had to make sure their food supply wouldn't suddenly take a hit.

So…. basically what changelings did before Chrysalis

Well, if he hasn't died yet, then Silver can't possibly die. It just works.
No idea what the second one means. It would be funny if this statement turned out to be true ingame. Heck, he doesn't really have any negative emotions towards them, since he never really saw a changeling before and could probably get behind serving a female worker and start a new hive.

I'll repost the descriptive paragraph in full:

>On the floor ahead of them, illuminated by the flashlight, they see a pony.

>Well, "pony" is perhaps a bit generous. The creature clearly was a pony at some point. The lips of the pony are entirely gone from the head. It now has exposed fore-teeth, the natural gap between the teeth and the rear molars giving it a perpetual wicked smile. One eye is entirely missing from its socket, leaving a black hole in the skull. The tongue too, seems missing. A cracked and cataract filled right eye remains and stares at the group, but… with the eye lids entirely missing. One ear has fluff on it, the other is bare flesh. The skull has at points only exposed bone, but most is covered in this dark leathery flesh-like substance that won't quite rot. On top of the head is a helmet. The strap goes down underneath the head, and keeps it firmly strapped on.

>My Celestia does he smell ghastly… worse than he looks. It's not just the decay of a corpse, it's almost supernatural

>The pony wears a uniform. It is a uniform that can be instantly recognized by most as belonging to an Equestrian non-commissioned officer. This uniform covers most of the front of the horse, although it can be seen that further down the rear of the horse the belly seems to be missing some flesh and is likely castrated. He has a belt with a holstered pistol nearer his flank. One forehoof still has a horse shoe, the other hoof is split and sinew is showing. The uniform has a couple tears in it, and some blood, but this pony is missing any sign of a bullet or shrapnel wound, unlike the last two, who were clearly wounded. This pony is wearing a flak jacket, and aside from one long gash it is undamaged. Indeed, you can see from a Los Pegasus campaign medal and a Manehattan campaign medal that this particular pony was quite an experienced soldier of the Empire of Harmony, having fought both the Changelings and New Mareland, and making it all the way to Harmony's last stand. For all of that, the Fascists never slew him

>In fact, he seems kind of animated now, clearly capable of movement, probably quick movement. He seems to have seen the group. He lets forth an unnatural "WHOOOOOOOOOOOOORG" that does not seem to belong to this realm

Onyx finds himself physically sickened by the stench of the Sargent. It throws off his attack with the Halberd, causing him to fail to penetrate tough flesh and the flak jacket where otherwise he may have succeeded

Just a question: do all the children sleep in the same room in the dorm, or are there several rooms?
I want to search their rooms in the dorm to confiscate any black magick tombs/tools, but I'd rather avoid disturbing the other children.

Tripping is a good idea. Lower touch AC, and he should take a penalty on his opposed roll from the nonprofficency in his armor.

8c343 No.77254

Dice rollRolled 20 + 5

Alright, the touch attack lands. Because a greatsword - unlike a halberd, for instance, is not one of the weapons with which a trip attack may be made, Silver must necessarily make the attack with a hoof, and this provokes an attack of opportunity from The Sargent

He bites at Silver

There are a few rooms, segregated by age and sex where possible

"You're coming with me."

Make two separate Fortitude saves

Although maybe he should be immune to ghoul fever because he rolled a 20 on a previous fort save? Then again, that was an attack with a hoof, and not a bite so I shouldn't have made him roll the second fort save to begin with

"We've already started"
She takes her to a section that has several dormitories. Foals have been awoken and pulled outside, and lights are turned on

The scorching ray fails to make contact, as a prone opponent is harder to hit from a distance

I'll just assume for the sake of argument that Ash bothered to ask a sister which of the dorms was the filly's rather than simply walking into a random dorm room out of ignorance

She sees multiple beds and a couple chests and dressers. Perhaps 8 beds in this room, 4 on each side. Each separate

I don't know why, and in all likelihood, Silver would never do that. Still, I, like Silver, have come to the realization that Silver here is good at doing nothing. He can't fight. He doesn't do well on skill check. And at the rate PCs are leveling in this game, he has no chance of getting any better.
He nearly died, and the only reason he managed to finish it off is because Onyx swooped in with his magic kill stick and nearly brought the thing down on his own. He built his entire self-image on the idea that he can fight, and that even in his age he can still fight. But now he realizes he can't.

Sister Ash sighs, it being too late at night for her to give a pep-talk to a foal about magical philosophy.
"If you wanted to learn magick, you certainly won't find anything of value from a street peddler.." she begins
"And you definitely won't find what you're looking for offering tribute to evil creatures. Magick is ingrained in morality: conjuring evil is always an evil act, and evil can only be used to spread evil.." she continues
"You don't know it yet, but the thing you're looking for won't be found in a book like this."
Explaining things to kids is hard…

But you dealt the killing blow. Not Onyx. Don't make your character suicidal without reason

fb3d4 No.77323

Isn’t that suppose to make you train harder and not give up immediately? It would make sense if he was a level 20 fighter that couldn’t fight, but you are a low level. It’s part of the leveling process to encounter lots of enemies that pose a challenge to not just one player, but all the players’ strength put together.

dbec9 No.77324

Silver's not suicidal just yet, don't worry. But he is definitely in for some troubled times in his life.

dbec9 No.77325

Maybe if Silver was young and he still had his whole life in front of him. But he's 68 years old. The only thing he's known, and believed he was good at, was fighting. To have that taken away from him like this would be devastating.

356b0 No.77326

That's an old hoers.
Did you name him silver after his hair? xP

dbec9 No.77327

It doesn't help that he's surrounded by another fighter who can kill almost anything he gets put up against, a druid who can summon fierce animals at will, a ranger/rouge with two powerful magic revolvers, a sorcerer who can annihilate enemies with magic, and whatever Iron is. Meanwhile, Silver is…just an old stallion with a sword. He's not strong, or fast, or have anything that can really aid him. He's just…there. Taking up space.
Nah. His father wasn't very creative with names, so he named him Silver Sword, because he was working on a silver sword when his son was born, and because his coat back then was remotely close to being silver-colored.

fb3d4 No.77328

It’s not like this is natural circumstances. This is a war vet being enhanced with evil magic and unholy powers. This is a new world of fighting, one that will launch Silver into a warrior status into the stratosphere. Being the one to slay the dead? Not even magic and being brought back to life can stop Silver from putting you back in your place. He will be feared all throughout the city.

Bitch fuckin' please. Silver is one of only two characters to deal any damage to the ghast at all. Dark Star failed to damage it at all thanks possibly to an unwillingness to duel wield or double tap. Spark got fucked over with shitty dice rolls, and was also unwilling to shoot it with his laser. The only reason Ash could kill a CR3 so quickly was 1. she had two extremely powerful spells in reserve, and she used both of them in a single fight 2. I let her get a bonus round to try to hit it before rolling initiative.

>How many ponies know about the undead?
Knowledge (religion) is thr skill that concerns undead. It's a train only skill, so only Clerics, Adepts, Bards, Wizards, and Expert NPCs would have extensive knowledge of them.
That doesn't mean a normal person can't take 10 on an untrained intelligence check upon seeing a 1 HD zombie and scream "Ahh! It's a zombie!"

It's slightly more complicated than that.
Potions are single use consumable items. They're different from spell trigger items, like wands, or spell completion items, like scrolls.
A potion is a magic liquid that produces its effect when imbibed. Potions are like spells cast upon the imbiber. The character taking the potion doesn’t get to make any decisions about the effect —the caster who brewed the potion has already done so. The drinker of a potion is both the effective target and the caster of the effect (though the potion indicates the caster level, the drinker still controls the effect).

I g2g. I can say more about items later.

It reads

"To my Sweet Autumn Meadows. The war is almost over, and I can feel the dark clouds on the horizon. The Fascist planes fly overhead with impunity, and they harass us now with their artillery. I have seen dark days before, in the early campaign at the Shire. The bugs came in great swarms that blackened the sky and blocked out the Princess’s Sun. The bodies of the dead gave a horrific smell you could smell from miles away, and the Changeling’s machines could be heard from as far. But even in those days it was not hard to keep up the light, because I knew that all of Equestria stood beside me and behind me. There is a very different feeling now. We should have driven the Duke’s minions back into the sea when we had the chance, and now they have pushed us to the sea. It feels as if the light will soon be extinguished.

I hope you made it well to Appleloosia. Please give Dandelion a good Birth Day. I know she is probably not taking the war well, and I regret not being able to be there for her. I wish I could be there with you and hold you again. I would give almost anything for one more night in the desert underneath the jeweled sky with you. But duty calls. Did you know that they promoted me to a lieutenant just last week? I guess I proved your father wrong after all. It seems that Pinkamena herself must have thought that I could do the job. They’ve set me leading a platoon guarding the North suburbs of Baltimare, but the Fascists are trying to break through again. Any time I look up into the sky and see the Princesses’ work, I think of you and Dandelion, and I remember why I am fighting. Why I must fight. But when I see planes, it becomes so very hard to keep faith. We’ll meet again, my Sweet Autumn Meadows, someday, though I don’t know how or when. When we do, I will take you on a waltz through the heavens, like that first dance all those years ago.

With all my love,
Joe Blazer

Inside the booklet, there are other chemical descriptions. It seems to have been written in some sort of cryptic writing - probably a form of shorthand - like the last. It has again a note at the beginning

"Dear Cinnamon Corn,

I have found that an improper application of the arsenic solution onto a corpse without the correct incantations, and sometimes even the same to a live subject, reanimates the corporeal being, but not the full spirit. It leaves a monstrous ghoulish entity with tough skin, and greater strength and endurance than the normal creature. Destroying these would destroy the subject as well, so it is recommended that you keep these subjects restrained until proper incantations may be applied. They can be rather aggressive. Each carries an eternal and voracious appetite for flesh. It was only after great expenditure of cattle that I learned that they don't need flesh to survive.

Yours, Joseph Curwhinny

The 'sweating' of nitroglycerin from the dynamite is partially offset by the decay and instability of the explosive.

There's no real telling how long it will be if we go through with the rest of this quest. It's already in the evening, so the most time he has is maybe five hours.
He nods, and pulls Dark Star onto his own back, being careful of the many pointy thinks he has there. "We can do this, maybe, once we get these two healed. But not before."

8c343 No.77814

So I take it there is a general retreat out of the caverns and away from the scene?

5637e No.77815

Only if Dark Star was sick enough to tell, and if Onyx recovers as fast as you say, then probably not.

dbec9 No.77816

"Do you need help with that, or…?"
If it bothers you that much, then yes, rewrite the scene. None of us have any idea what the symptoms of Ghoul Fever are, nor do we know how quickly they appear, so setting some of that up for us would be very helpful.

8c343 No.77817

Damn it I'm not the one who said there was shit loads of vomiting. A character just started vomiting a lot and you all chose to treat that bunch of vomiting more seriously than equal amounts of vomiting by that character and one other on two separate earlier occasions

5637e No.77818

Then rewrite the scene. We didn't do anything then.

dbec9 No.77819

Again, this. We have no problem redoing the scene if you feel like the need is there.

8c343 No.77820

I'm just pissy that the whole quest isn't being done in a single take. There's supposed to be something like "4 encounters a day," and this has been 1 minor one and 2 serious ones. I guess there isn't really anything time sensitive about this one though, unlike the communists on the docks

Basically this. None of us really know how to make the most of these encounters, and we don't really know when to try to advance the story along and when to look for details. Just please try to have some patience for a bunch of new players.

c7bc9 No.77823


dbec9 No.77824

In all likelihood, though, the Dark Star player wasn't even meaning to metagame. He was given a prompt he didn't know what to do with because he didn't know anything about Ghoul Fever, so he just rolled with it.

Alright, so it looks like there is a general withdrawal from the caverns

The Dark Star character absolutely has things to do for the remainder of the night. Onyx, Spark, and Silver… not so much, at least at the moment. I guess it is okay to force an end to day 3 because I want to get Ash, Iron, and the Stallion gang all on the same timeline. However, at the moment I don't really have any planned out quests besides the Silver Springs Quarry and the missing foals (several of them). So don't be surprised if you get a loading-screen when you try to look for all that much else

728ae No.77826

I guess I'll ask now if the Iron rape scene was real or a figment of paranoia from the lack of security.

Hey GM, are guns in this world considered as an exotic weapon category?

dbec9 No.77833

I was wondering the same thing.

8c343 No.77834

I guess proficiency would be bestowed based mostly on past experience, but really the main thing I'm looking for is the strength rating to use the heavier guns

dbec9 No.77835

That makes sense.

c7bc9 No.77836

But what classes get them?

728ae No.77837

So if I were to make a ranged rouge build, what specialization should I pick if I want to use rifles and don't want a -4 on attack rolls for example?

dbec9 No.77838

I would guess Ranger would have proficiency with most firearms from the start, especially rifles, while Rouges would start with proficiency with sidearms.

1b442 No.77840

But are they simple, martial, or what?

dbec9 No.77841

They're probably among all three classifications, depending on the type of firearm, I would guess. Break-action rifles and shotguns, and semi-auto pistols and revolvers are likely simple weapons. Bolt-action and semi-auto rifles and shotguns, and SMGs are likely martial weapons. LMGs, MMGs, HMGs, full-auto rifles, and full-auto pistols are likely exotic weapons.

dbec9 No.77842

I would also guess that Rouges start with proficiency with SMGs despite them being a martial weapon, and that firearms with select fire between full-auto and semi-auto change their classification based on which fire mode you use them in. Sort of like how a bastard sword used in one hand is an exotic weapon, but a bastard sword used in two hands is a martial weapon.

1b442 No.77843

D20 Modern just places the them in 3 profficiencies mostly bas d on size: Personal, Longarm, and heavy. Other gunz are exitoc.

dbec9 No.77844

Personally, I think that oversimplifies it a bit too much, and at the same time defeats the purpose of the Simple, Martial, and Exotic classification system.

728ae No.77845

Will the GM even respond to this quandry as well as informing of when a character gains XP?

8c343 No.77846

In D&D mechanics, a sneak attack may only be attempted with a ranged weapon at a distance that does not exceed 30 feet. This means that ranged rogues only really have much value at "point blank" distances. Because the short distance of the rogue sneak attack probably represents the slow travel of a crossbow bolt and how much time a target has to react, it might make sense to increase that distance for a firearm, and to reflect the reality of snipers.

I have Blue Skies, for example, rate as good with pistols and carbine rifles, partly reflective of a 9 Strength score

No, and after they do things

c7bc9 No.77847

Well, that system actually separates guns as a separate class of weapons. In d20, martial weapons become 'archaic' weapons.
The system is somewhat feat-intensive, but characters in d20 may get bonus feats based on starting occupation or background, kind of like how GM said.

728ae No.77848

>increase that distance
How much can it be increased? Are we talking about 12000 feet here or just a small increase of 30 more feet?
Besides that, a rogue can just pick up a carbine and shoot it without any feats to use it averagely, right?

dbec9 No.77849

Except the Simple, Martial, and Exotic system doesn't separate weapons out by size, it does so by ease-of-use. A break-action rifle will be significantly easier for most people to use than a semi-auto rifle, even if they are both longarm weapons. Just like how it's much easier to use a longspear than it is a lance, despite them both being two-handed melee weapons.

c7bc9 No.77850

Well, it doesn't, but it's separated basically on training.
Most Personal and Longarm firearms operate more or less the same way, at least as far as aiming and shooting them goes. Mechanics may be different, but the basis really boils down to whether or not the character knows how to aim a handgun/rifle.

dbec9 No.77851

If they were operated the same way, then there's no reason to even have a classification system.

dbec9 No.77852

It's times like this where I really wish I was actually any good with words. I KNOW why I think separating them based on their size just doesn't work, and why it would be much better to separate them based on the older system, but I can't put it into words. It's why I don't like getting into arguments, words just don't come naturally to me, so I always end up at the bottom.
