    Hey folks! I'm still good for tomorrow and all but I just received news I'm getting sent back to Japan next week, and I'll be gone for 2-6 weeks. So maybe I'll just be a part-time adventurer? Or you can replace me and I would totally understand. Let me know which you'd prefer.

    well, we'd still have four people so I think it would work mechanically?

    Boo! Shouldn't be an issue, though. 3-5 players is a good match.

    If we could end every session with Vorlen getting hit in the head and knocked unconscious, I think we could easily roll it into part of the larger story.

    If he's under 120 lbs., Tusk can haul him around in a sack without hitting his encumbrance limit! At the beginning of every adventure where you're there, "Hey, think we need the necro guy? Yeah, OK, lemme find where I stashed him..." *Shake* *Shake* *Shake* *THUMP*

    That seems to be the simplest solution! It can be spotty so if there's issues I'll come up with an alternative for later weeks.

    I spent a little bit of time uploading tokens and such to roll20.

    An excellent first session! One Neogi down, six regular humans rescued, and only one home was set on fire by General Sparks the Arsonist Dog!

    General Sparks remains silent when Speak With Animals is used in order to avoid incriminating himself, on the advice of his lawyer.

    His lawyer presumably being the voice of Satan in his head compelling him to perpetrate acts of destruction?

    Also, had a great time, and looking forward to further adventures with you all!

    Also also, I don't know if I mentioned in chat, but for a starting time of 6:30PM on a weekday, my absolute play limit is 4 hours, and then I've got to be in bed by 10:30 for work. I'd imagine everyone else will typically want to break for the evening earlier than that, most of the time.

    Also also also, if anyone wants character sketches, my physical therapist says getting in some daily drawing time is good for my busted arm! So send me some details and I'd be happy to scribble something up!

    I can't imagine our sessions will go much past 2-3 hours, so that shouldn't be a problem!

    is it weird i kind of want a sketch of General Sparks, The Arsonist Dog than i do for my own character?

    I picture him as something like an larger airdale in a leather harness for carrying stuff, and a burning desire for fire.

    No one knows how he starts fires. Theories include failed experiment to bind a fire elemental to a dog, a Faustian bargain gone ever more wrong, and polymorphed red dragon. Elidana doesn't really care, he is real soft on the hand and she finds the smell of smoke comforting.

    Spent part of my lunch break meticulously entering combat values into roll20 for every variant of my carried weapons (greatsword, javelin, handaxe, warhammer, unarmed, rage, no rage, melee, thrown, 1 hand, 2 hand, off hand), and fiddling with them until I knew they were getting all my crap right, especially with regards to bonus crit damage from being a Half-Orc which is something I've forgotten to factor in far too many times in other games.

    Anyway, I can't remember which one of you was the other in the chat last night after everyone else had left also trying to figure out how to do damage rolls, but once the roll to hit pops up in the chat window, you can click on the name of the attack and it will roll damage.

    Also, got started sketching General Sparks, who is a Good Dog (even if he does Bad Things). For other sketches, some rough details would be helpful. Especially for Dubh's Lizardfolk... there are a lot of different ways to Lizard, and I want to make sure I'm aiming for the right one.

    It's the Winner of the Best Boy Award six years running: General Sparks, The Arsonist Dog. Love or hate his sporadic fires, there is no doubt that he is The Good Boy.

    Nobody asks why the other entrants in the Best Boy Award have all decided to spontaneously combust for the past six years.
    These things just happen to some good boys who aren't the Best Boy.

    an female iguana would be a good reference to start with - no weird dewlap hanging from her jaw or whatever, generally a sleeker look if you don't count the spines

    she also has two fins on the side of her head, right in front of her ears

    i have been trying to not make a new mexico whiptail joke for a while now, and i will continue to not do so.

    but, i just had to put that out there, because my brain is a terrible place.

  • MeldingMelding Registered User regular
    so, things still good to go?also are we getting a temp for tony or are good with 4?

  • RainfallRainfall If you do not repay me, I will RECLAIM the ball.Registered User regular
    4 will be fine, no need to get a temp. Honestly 3 works fine in 5E as long as the action economy doesn't get too skewed
    And we should be good to go!

    Yeah, and we've got a pretty solid spread of capabilities with the four of us left. We should be fine.

    Provided the Neogi don't notice that one of us has obviously shitty mental saves and brain hack him to flip out and murder everyone.
