Day 165: Elven Raiders and Dwarven Volunteers Mashup Part II

Weather delay. For an online game? Yes. Also, in the tradition of Legolas and Gimli, Team Elf has 18 kills, and Team Dwarf has 11. Finally, I went and renumbered the rounds so as to synchronize the various movements of orcs, elves, and dwarves. Not that it matters to you spectators, but helps avoid continuity errors (although there is one).

Day 165: Elf Raider and Dwarf Volunteer Mashup

Oytmeet, in this campaign, has altered geography: it's on the north side of the Oyt River, and has no bridges across the Oyt; travel across is only by ferry. Looking at the map of Oytmeet in the Against the Giants module, the dwarves are toward the top of the map, and the elves the bottom.

Day 161, kind of: Dwarves Finally Leave Gorna.

This is kind of a fill in of the exposition from the end of the previous session.

Day 161: Dwarves in Gorna V

Or a day in which an instant kill occurred. Tikkaer does it, not Beldren, despite the narration. Oh, and Tex's player was running Erihild this time.

Creations & Ephemera / Army of PCs Against the Giants Discussion Thread
« on: January 08, 2019, 12:31:34 AM »
Presumably, this is the right place for such things. Right, so a discussion thread for those so inclined about the apparently fairly popular campaign log...Against the Giants. There will be no regular updates, and I may or may not answer questions, cause at least one of my players also lurks on these hallowed boards.

I'm curious to see what you all think about some house rules we use and of the builds for some of the characters. So today, one house rule, and one character build:

The Rule- fighters may exchange their armor and shield proficiencies for other fighter bonus feats. We call these fighter exchange feats. This option is exercised at 1st level, and the exchange feats are gained at odd levels. Thus, at 1st level a fighter can get two bonus feats. You cannot exchange a feat that is a prerequisite for a feat you're keeping (you can't lose light and medium armor proficiency but keep heavy armor proficiency, for example).

So yes, a clever player will take, say, a level of ranger, then a level of fighter, and dump all the fighter's armor and shield feats for 5 extra bonus feats, to be gained over the course of 9 levels of fighter. Since fighters never get anything nice, I see no issue.

The Build: Navussar is designed to be a ranger, but more so. Currently, he's a ranger 8/beastmaster 1.
Navussar- male half elf ranger 8/beastmaster 1/ranger +3/holt warden 2/lion of talisid 6
Feats:
1- power attack, track*
2- rapid shot*
3- skill focus- handle animal, endurance*
6- favored power attack, manyshot*
9- natural bond
12- favored of the companions, improved precise shot*
15- practiced spellcaster
18- open, exalted companion*

This gives BAB +17, caster level 12, spells/day as a ranger 19 plus plant domain (for 4/4/4/3 plus wisdom), animal companion as an 18th-level druid, wild shape 3/day, and pounce (although pounce shows up really late). I think I would just apply the celestial template to the existing animal companion.

This leads me to a question: I calculate caster level in this case as 1/2 ranger level+ 1/2 holt warden level+ 1/2 lion of talisid level+ practiced spellcaster, or 5.5+1+3+4= 12. Is that the consensus 'round these parts, or would you all go 5.5+2+6+4= 17?

Day 161: Dwarven Volunteers in Gorna IV

I never thought I'd see the day when great cleave came in handy.

Day 177: MAOG vs the Frost Giants III

I could've sworn I posted this on Saturday night, but maybe it fell out of the internet. And the number of views is like 30-ish lower than yesterday. Whatever.

Day 164: Elven Raiders

An interesting tidbit (at least to me): this is the seventh session that has had something occur on Day 164, involving three of the parties.

Also, Caboose's player was running Navus.

Day 165: Sephira's Quest

Sylaernae's player (who also played Kaicl and Momenrech) has dropped out, so Sylaernae is now being played by the same person who plays Caboose and Tex. Curiously, Syl's personality didn't change much.

Day 159: Dwarven Volunteers

In this session we introduce
Tex- female halfling necromancer 4
Skelly- human skeleton minion (4 HD)

Tex's player (who also plays Caboose) and I have discussed a riding harness for Tex on her skeleton minion. I'm looking forward to that, not gonna lie.

Day 177: MAOG vs the Frost Giants Part II

For those of your following along on the map, the party is in the hallway in the northeast corner of the Rift.

Day 177: MAOG vs the Frost Giants

For those of you who happen to have a copy of either module G2 or the 1999 Against the Giants re-release, these giants are in area 2 and 1 (respectively). Zelda was heading into area 13 when the giants attacked (vacant, since they already killed the yeti who lived here). Due to fireball useage during the MAOG's first foray into the Rift, the wall on the north side of area 2 had a hole melted through it.

Day 176- The MAOG Plus

Tragically, Real Life interfered with gaming last week. Sad, really.

Day 171: MAOG

I didn't properly introduce a couple of new characters, so:

Escaflowne- male half-dragon fighter 8 (ECL 11)
Harvey- male anthropomorphic bat druid 11
Fluffy- Harvey's female megaraptor animal companion
Caboose- male half-orc barbarian 10 (shows up at the end of the session)

I think the last time I played AD&D (AKA 2e for you youngsters out there) was to attack the Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl (along with Zelda/Karla and Kaicl/Momenrech's players, each of us playing at least two characters) somewhere between 1996-1998. Of course there was much looting, which all went into Karla's bag of holding...and there is sat until this session in the Year of Our Lord 2018. All the expositional comments the PCs make are true; we did withdraw because the opposition got too tough (as I recall some of the giants decided it would be amusing to engage in a rock-throwing contest across the Rift). After that Real Life interfered and we never picked it up again.

The giants are speaking Swedish, in case you're wondering.
