The Sinister Spire OOC

Okay, I'd like to try DMing, bought an adventure so please be patient with me and yes, I have someone to ask questions of, for when I have no clue....

It's called the Sinister Spire and I'm looking for four players. As much as I'd like to include everyone? I'm afraid I would go crazy. It won't be first come first chosen, I'll chose by what makes sense to me and what you write about your character and no, I don't expect a long and involved history of his or her life.

It'll be a 32 point buy for fifth level characters with standard starting gold and equipment and I really don't care if you buy travel rations or not. I do care about any nonstandard equipment or magic and I'll let you know if I think it's totally off the wall.
You can use any book that I have access to, no I really don't want to list them all here, so ask and I'll let you know.
I will expect players to post at least once every one to two days.
I want you to use an online die roller. I want to see you roll and if you keep trying....that will irritate me and I'll do it myself.
All my rolls will be secret.
If you're going to be absent, let me know via PM or in this thread after the game has started. If someone doesn't post for a week or more without letting me know, I reserve the right to find someone to replace them
Have your characters on an online site like Tangled web or Coyote Code

I do want to keep this moving, I want to learn and have fun.
Sophistemon

Hey, I'm in. Let me work on a character idea and I'll have it posted within the week.
The Chilli God

You must be...

You...

You do know that The Sinister Spire is the follow-up adventure to Barrow of the Forgotten King? An adventure that I'm DM'ing right here?

I...

...Never mind. -_- Carry on, don't mind me.
That just made continuing my Barrow campaign into The Sinister Spire into a little less viable of an option...
Kyrian

Hmm...I'm going to have to give this a try.
Sophistemon

Okay, I finished early!

May I present Regak Blackiron, the dwarven fighter!

I have some gold to spend, so could somebody please suggest some magic items?

Ah well, and here I was considering joining this. But if all us Barrow players promise not to read this one then we could still run it too without having been spoiled.
Vael

Sounds like that would work for you guys.

Anywho, I'm interested.
Not sure what I'll go with though. Possibly a warlock, or other semi-caster type.
wxdruid

Sophistemon,

for your damage with a waraxe you get to + on your STR modifier so it should read 1d10 + 3 (STR mod) and +1 for the extra damage listed in the special properties.

As fifth level you start out with 10,000 XP and I would like to know a little about this dwarf, already I'm curious.

I'm sorry Chilli God
Sophistemon

Whoop, sorry about the XP. That was a typo, is all. I was missing a zero. I've fixed it, and made the changes you wanted to Snaga's damage.

And I'm trying to find a better name for the axe. 'Snaga' sounds too goblinesque for my tastes.

And, don't worry. I'm working on a backstory.
Vael

And now we have the Warlock Rasphiak, servant of Auraborus.
Kyrian

And now Elias. The rogue that Vael gets to try and keep in line =P

No seriously though, there's the Rogue.
wxdruid

And I need at least one more person to volunteer to play.
Sophistemon

I have added the barest smidgen of a backstory.

I plan to add more as my addled brain comes up with it.
Draken Frosthand

A skilled (a friend of mine says skill monkey), a blaster and a tank.

Lacking a healer.

I will play. I think I will make a cleric.
Sophistemon

Kind of you, Draken. Good to have you with us.
Kyrian

*Elias looks up from searching through Draken's stuff.* Yes yes, kind of you...
Draken Frosthand

Damian Ergion F. Your Healer, a good old Archivist, and a fine secondary blaster too.

And a curse maniac.

Bestow Curse stands among my prefered spells.
Sophistemon

Oh-ho! Now that looks promising!
wxdruid

I will review them soon and hopefully start by Thursday, (as long as work cooperates and I get some peace and quiet to review the character sheets). A plan is also coming together in my head for introducing the ever present plot hook and I'll post the IC thread link here when I have it.
El Jaspero

Why do I always stumble on these things too late? *le sigh*

Have you closed recruiting, or might you be open to a 5th "utility" character like a ranger or bard?
wxdruid

I haven't closed it yet, I'll be curious to see what you come up with.
El Jaspero

http://profiler.thetangledweb.net/view.php?id=22885

I haven't finished the equipment buy yet, but my brain is locking up.
Sophistemon

We get El Jaspero, too?

Kickin' sweet, dudes.
wxdruid

Kyrian, how did you come up with the + to your damage with a longbow? I believe you didn't use all of your skill points and please put your rogue abilities (like Sneak attack damage, Evasion and Uncanny Dodge).

longbow information
Spoiler:


Longbow, Composite

You need at least two hands to use a bow, regardless of its size. You can use a composite longbow while mounted. All composite bows are made with a particular strength rating (that is, each requires a minimum Strength modifier to use with proficiency). If your Strength bonus is less than the strength rating of the composite bow, you canít effectively use it, so you take a -2 penalty on attacks with it. The default composite longbow requires a Strength modifier of +0 or higher to use with proficiency. A composite longbow can be made with a high strength rating to take advantage of an above-average Strength score; this feature allows you to add your Strength bonus to damage, up to the maximum bonus indicated for the bow. Each point of Strength bonus granted by the bow adds 100 gp to its cost.

Longbow

You need at least two hands to use a bow, regardless of its size. A longbow is too unwieldy to use while you are mounted. If you have a penalty for low Strength, apply it to damage rolls when you use a longbow. If you have a bonus for high Strength, you can apply it to damage rolls when you use a composite longbow but not a regular longbow.

wxdruid

Started The Sinister Spire

Taking all PC's, and a warning, if you die in the adventure, you won't get rezzed until the rest of the party takes you to a town/temple to have it done.
wxdruid

It is possible to climb down to the bottom. The DC is lower if you have a rope. And someone can have a rope.
wxdruid

And I made an error, it should have been climb, so I will take your rolls and add the applicable modifier to it and you'll find out the results.
Kyrian

I want a reroll. Just because Vael points out that the wrong check was asked doesn't mean our rolls for that check should get taken.

----

What I'm trying to get at here, is with something like this, It should be a group decision, not just Vael saying "To save time, let's just do this." He's only one sixth (counting Gwen) of the group.
wxdruid

Okay, found the problem....will fix my last post. And no, it's not a group decision, it's my decision.
El Jaspero

Sorry for the silence; I had to go back to Chicago last week, but I'm back now.
wxdruid

El J, I still need a good link for your character.
Sophistemon

I would like to apologize for my crappy rolling. I have no idea why that keeps happening.
Draken Frosthand

It's to balance my awesome rolling.

I think i am stealing your luck Soph.
Sophistemon

I don't doubt that in the slightest.
Kyrian

Due to Thanksgiving break, I'm going home next Tuesday, so my posting may be anywhere from sporadic to non-existent Tuesday through next Sunday.
wxdruid

From Wed to Mon I will be in Salt Lake with limited internet access (my mom doesn't like me using her computer). If I get the time and everyone has posted for the next round then I will write up an update.

If everyone posts by end of today, then I can get in another round, otherwise it will be when I get the time (until Thanksgiving is over and I'm back in IL)
Kyrian

Alright, this swarm thing is annoying me. I don't seem to understand how it's working.

If it's all over, how is it only attacking one of us?
wxdruid

There are two big cockroaches left and the swarm is a separate entity (with many many small cockroaches)
Kyrian

I got that, but I don't understand like, WHERE they are, it's not marked on a map, and how it's decided who they attack, if they're all over.
wxdruid

The swarm is all over the floor, they attack anyone who ends up on the floor. They are ALL over it, completely over it, you move you crunch through them. You tumble it reduces your tumble check by 2.
El Jaspero

Ah, so it's almost more like an environmental effect than a monster. 'K.
Draken Frosthand

It must be a swarm creature too, or it wouldn't have an initiative check.

In this case, my fiery bursts are damaging the swarm too, am I correct?
wxdruid

Feel free to post further actions or what not....the eight hours passes without incident.
wxdruid

500 xp for each player and someone needs to post everyone going through the earth node...
Kyrian

Alright, I'm leaving Purdue today. Both for winter break, and for...well, almost good.

I'm not going back to Purdue next semester, I'm done with the place for now.

This is a warning that I won't always be around as I have been.
wxdruid

you're not going to find out to much more from the dwarf.  Did anyone take that note?  from the other node?
Vael

Rasphiak was told to take it, but he left the skeletons alone... I suppose Regak might have picked it up?
wxdruid

whoever has it, might want to try and get it translated in the underground town.

and I'm waiting for you guys to move forward.
wxdruid

Hm, I can see I'll have to move you along, since no one wants to set foot on the bridge....I'll do that tonight.
wxdruid

To repeat myself.  If you are going to be gone let me know.  Also if everyone has posted and you don't post within a day, or after I remind you, then I will post an action for your character in the next round.
Kyrian

I won't be around for most of today and probably not much tomorrow or Weds.
wxdruid

I'm sorry, but I won't be able to update this afternoon.  Staying up for 17 hrs yesterday wore me out and I slept around til noon.  I have to leave for work by 1:45pm and it's 1:20pm right now.  I'll make a point to do it tomorrow or after work tonight, (but the latter is not a guarantee).
wxdruid

Okay, the aboleth is gone, no more skum...

Each of you gets 800xp

So far on this trip

500 xp for the roaches, 100 xp for the encounter with Bruthwol and 800 xp from the Aboleth/skum.

Everyone needs to have their amount of xp at the top of their character sheet.  You should have 1400 + the 10,000 you started out with.  So 11,400.

Make sure you keep track of it at the top of your character sheet, so far only Heggle and Elias have.  As we get further along I won't remember all the xp that's been rewarded and if you don't keep track of it....you'll still be at level 5 when everyone else is at level 10 and then you'll wonder why.
wxdruid

600 xp for each of you, don't forget to document it.
El Jaspero

I'll be gone tomorrow through Sunday.   No idea if I'll have internet access.
Kyrian

Don't you think I should have been informed of what Elias managed to steal? So that way he wouldn't tell the group that the chest held something he'd already taken out?
wxdruid

I'm erasing the prior posts and we'll redo it.  Make it easier that way.  Sorry about the confusion.
wxdruid

and it is reversed and fixed.  If you have questions, ask them now or forever hold your peace.
wxdruid

Tangled Web changed everything, I'll need everyone to send me the new link for your character sheet once you get in and find it.  Thanks.
Kyrian

Elias
Draken Frosthand

Damian
El Jaspero

Heggle
wxdruid

Are the other two PC's going to hop in the boat? Or stay behind on the dock?
Vael

I could have sworn I put this up before.
http://www.thetangledweb.net/forums/profiler/view_char.php?cid=2689
Character sheet link.
wxdruid

Who knows, I was lazy and didn't update the first post in the IC thread when I should have. †Thank you for posting or reposting it.  =)

xp has been PM'd, so look for it and update your character sheet with the new xp.
El Jaspero

Quick note: Mrs. Jaspero is presenting a paper in Dublin next week and of course needs her "research assistant" to join her there.   We'll be on the road this Thurs. (the 26th) through July 6; we think we'll have intertubes over there, but just in case: press on, grouchily.
wxdruid

Okay a rundown on base xp so far,

cockroaches 500
Bruthwol 100
Aboleth/Skum 800
South Gate 500
Dock 600

I think I may have forgotten to give xp for the south gate?  I don't see it listed above nor in my PM's.  Please check your xp.
Vael

wxdruid wrote:

What's this one then?
wxdruid

well, looking at the date, I will suppose that is the south gate, so a revised version would be

cockroaches 500
Bruthwol 100
Aboleth/Skum 800
South Gate 600
Dock 600

that seems to make more sense.
Vael

As such, the total (unadjusted) XP for the party is:
12,600.
This may change due to varying extra XP awarded.
wxdruid

Statistics for the 2 advanced phantom fungi that could remain invisible.

The one that attacked Damian-Rasphiak did 5/6ths of the damage to it, Elias the other 1/6th

The one that attacked Regak-Rasphiak did about 3/5ths of the damage, Regak did the rest in his defense.

xp PM's will be sent out today.
wxdruid

This game is moving far to slowly.  I need more active players, so I'm moving it over to GitP and recruiting two new players and hopefully revitalize the game.  If you're coming over then I expect you to post or I'll just drop you and/or kill your character.  I'm tired of the slow pace.

While I recruit and start the new threads over there, the game is paused here, since the market and Inn are the best places to find new characters.
El Jaspero

Could you post the GitP link to your new game?

edit: nm, found it.
wxdruid

For those that need it
