KTizzle is now a rat's ass away from leveling (like 400xp).
I am SO FUCKING STOKED that we got a ship. We can do ANYTHING now.
I will write more tomorrow, finally going home (14.5 hrs at work is nicht gut).
You Saved Fritjof
Back at the Stygensport bar, you all toast each other and enjoy your 1000 xp, and wonder what you'll do with your new ship Screwdriver
. Here's how it went down in a nutshell.
Tut, you actually shoot the guy's face right off. Blind and mute, the pirate dives into the water to find his face.
Invisibly, Theo makes his way to the harpoon gun, and releases Free Willy, I mean Fritjof, from the harpoon rope. Well done.
Meanwhile, your druid pals who you sailed here with have successfully finished off the rest of the pirates. They high-five you and give you the pirate ship Screwdriver
in thanks. They Warp Wood and stuff to make their ship better and sail off.
Fritjof tugs your leaky boat with you on it back to Stygensport, gives you a blow-hole salute, and heads back to Finland.
I gotta go to Japan, but when I get back, expect things to get a whole lot weirder... H3 has only begun...
Labels: finland- get it?
Oh yes, I had forgotten about those 2nd level spells! -Invisibility and Mirror Image, if I remember correctly.
Did I learn
invisibility? BR:41. Indeed, I did! How about Mirror Image? BR:63. Yes, with 2% to spare! Wow, I also get a bonus 2nd each day. -I suppose it's fair to say I'd take one of each.
I go invisible.
I then work my way to that harpoon gun.
Labels: super retcon
I also raise my hand for some healing, please.
I'd like to call attention to one of my NWPs - 'close-combat archery'. So I say, if the dude is specced out in bow, and has taken that kind of slot with bows, then sure, why not? 'Cuz most of our foes are PC-level archers, right?
I'm just modelling myself after Gregolas - Oops, I'm sorry, I mean Thundercles. Well, you know who I mean - the dude from LOtR who shoots orcs that are standing right next to him. Sure, I've got some spells, too - but I'm older than that dude.
And angrier, that's for sure. Especially at lycanthropes, and most other elves, and the undead, and assassins, and haters who steal our jams, and . . . well, and a LOT of folks.
But mostly at the WEREfolks. I hate those biatches.
I'm just saying that KT needs more than spells to be useful, past 2 Hold Persons (which I think is cheesy) and some heal spells he doesn't have much going on. The Betterberries are totally for the win though. I'd actually like to use the rest of my 1st level spells for some prep stuff, there are no good 1st level spells, I don't think I've actually ever cast one.
Tut's bow shots:
BR 20, BR7. TO THE FACE!
BR 4 = 6x2 dmg.
Spiderbot BR 7. I don't know what his Thac0 is, but I think that's actually a hit v. AC 7? If so, BR 6 (!) for 6x2 pts.
I need to take this random # generator to Vegas, I get some good rolls out of this thing.
After that, I'll send the bot to help Theo out. Then I want to check on the whale, who seems to be doing ok now (and doesn't mind floating patiently on the water while 3 people fight on top of him?), and then I will look at the hulls of both boats to see how they are doing...we need at least 1 sailable vessel, because I don't think I can carry everyone on the jet ski.
RE: gnoll archers using bows in melee, just remember 1) I want to see the NWP on their character sheet and 2) they have to choose it when they level up, they can't just store it and then spontaneously take it when the get in combat with us.
Next chance I get, I heal Theo. I drop 2 CLW's, BR 8 and BR 3.
"Wish You Were Here. Love, The Pirate"
Dag, okay, you kill one of the pirates on you, and the other guy hits you for 8.
Theodore, well every time you level, you can add two spells of any circle you can cast to your book. So if you don't have any 2nd circle spells, you have only yourself to blame. Snap?
Pirate misses you. He writes you a letter.
KT, your dog poo druid spells provide lots of healing for the party, killed a pirate, and got you the spiderbot. Not sure what you were expecting?
And also, the whole thing about bows in melee isn't so much about how useful or useless you'd be, it's about what's realistic. I just don't want to hear you guys complain when, in the next module or two, you face some gnoll archers or guys who joust you with heavy lances every round.
Back to the show. Tut, you wound your pirate, and the bot kills one of its. Return fire: 8 on the bot, 5 on you.
Spiderbot: down 20
Shooting my pirate, BR 18, BR 10. Hit for 4 pts.
Spider bot attacks its pirate, BR 20. For damage, BR 5 (x2x2)
Who cares about using bows in melee, 1/2 our party would be completely useless if we couldn't. As far as I'm concerned, if some loser wants to do 4 pts of dmg / round with a bow v. me, while in melee, go for it. Druid spells are absolute dog poo, if they weren't, maybe Tut would have something useful to do instead of shoot a crappy bow.
I do wish I had a 2nd level spell for that slot.
I shoot my Pirate, BRs:1,3. Snap? BR:10
I raise my hand for that healing, Dag.
Labels: Oh fuck
Save vs. BW? 15.... damn.
I jump on to the pirate ship and take the two pirates head on.
BR 19 for 7 (BR 5 +2)
BR 19 3 (BR 1 +2)
BR 2 - oof
BR 19 for 9 (BR 7 +2)
who needs some healin'?
RETCON- I pay way to much for an incredibly ornate tatoo of Thaka... I drop 30GP on it. and leather armor purchased. word em up.
Free Fritjof Continues
Okay Theo, you ignite one of your pirates. He screams and dives into the sea to extinguish the flames. I guess they never showed the "Stop Drop and Roll" educational films at pirate school. The other pirate yells: "Hey it's a wizard!" and attacks you... hit for 6, you're down to 5 hp.
Paul, thanks for the info.
Threondy, no, the shuriken storm doesn't work like that. It's basically one shuriken per dude. You take down both your pirates, but not before one of them slashes you for 4, down to 4 hp.
Tut, you get hit for 3. Your spider bot has two pirates of its own on it, don't forget! They bash away at it for 12 hp.
It's pretty silly for all of you to be using your bows in melee combat. Just don't bitch when the tables get turned, a'ight?
Spiderbot: down 12
