actually, surreal, a simple detect magic spell will id what the source of the abjuration magic is, and a pick pocket, dispel magic, or sunder attack can disable those annoying little devices. if it's an actual spell active, then it can be dispelled.

It's a layer of defense that is designed to simply slow you down, and waste party resources at the same time. Most won't know if its up or down, or may not even undersatnd the mechanics behind it.
Major profit item for artificers.

Sorry about that - as mentioned earlier, it is in the SRD. I'll make sure I make notes on spells used in the future.

Best,
David

So, Sul, Vintereth, and Celestine and Tanner are included, but Val is not (having arrived later, and also being an unknown, who Tanner wouldn't have included anyway).

Best,
David

EDIT: Not that Sul would need this to communicate telepathically anyway...

- what does it prevent? (Mind reading, possession, enchantment, etc.?)
- how effective is it? (Complete immunity, Caster level check or DC to overcome, complete immunity to spells below a certain level, etc.)
- how much do they cost / how rare are they (Could we buy / steal one?)

I'm assuming that if they are fairly common for the nobility that there are probably a few tiers, and that all but the highest tier of effect are reasonably available (to those with some combination of wealth, connections, and crafting ability).

Best,

New Cyre may have someone capable of producing at least the minor gems of warding, but wroat and sharn can definitely do for you.

hey zarzak.. I caught the update on yer character wiki. No fears.

I'm going to spare you a druid faux pass before we move on to dinner-- yer werehybrid form weighs in around 500 pounds. you are going to CRUSH whatever furniture you decide to park yer fuzzy butt on. not to mention knock over glasses and sqeeze out yer neighbors when you reach for food unless you reshape to yer actual self... glamors are nice, but it's just illusion. disguise self is a crappy spell to hide the fact taht you stand probably 7 - 8 feet tall right now. (notice how NO ONE has touched you yet? I'm treating you with kid gloves in this prologue?), but I"ll start looking to embarrass the hell out of celestine once this dinner is over. That is my best "friendly scolding" I can give ya. If celestine seriously hasn't considered this, and you expect to make some social blunders during the private dinner, then I will have a blast watching you derail my plot before I've even presented it... But I apologize if that is your plan and I'm just talking for no reason. If it was a serious oversight, then I'm glad I brought it up before fur hits the fan.

I'm gonna rant for a second, so everyone take this with a grain of salt, and do you best not to get too offended......

I'm THIS close to having that giant bird eat about 3 or 4 horses here in town. he was instructed to "go enjoy himself".. so that deserves a bit more commentary, I think... unless you want me to have a quick side story about guards shooing a 20 foot bird from the caravans...?

I'm sorry for sounding like I'm picking on you like this, I will kill any pets familiars and other unattended whatevers if left ignored for a chapter.

BTW... what up with yer crystal, Tanner?
sul abosrbs his, so no harm there.... lucky!
the legacy weapon is in check, but it is intelligent as well, is it not?
and the horse sword is kinda intelligent... I will want feedback from that as well.

I'll just say right now, if the little things like this aren't attended to, all cohorts will be left VERY background, because you guys already have a lot on your plate.
These extra personas are there to enhance your character's interaction in the world... give you things to reflect off of, explore environments in ways your character couldn't do him/heself realistically... Obviously, you don't have to add tons of crap about blah blah blah, but if your aditional personas are going to potentially bring in an unusual angle to a converation, or allow something to come up that wouldn't otherwise happen naturally... do it. use the tools and make them live too!

Neglect = erase

So basically, I'm scolding the whole team at the moment. If you folks expect to get a statistical advantage, then make sure to play the RP bit as well.
Again, this is the prologue, a simple dinner party allowing us all to screw up and stumble over each other, and get a feel for posting etc. Once I start throwing lightning bolts, fingers of death and moon size chunks of adamantine at you, I wanna make sure we all see eye to eye.


Is that fair?

Sounds good. I figured that having Celestine be 7-8 feet tall might be unusual, but amongst such interesting company wouldn't matter too much (When you have heroes and such some unusualness it is to be expected) - especialy since it is physically possible for a human to be that tall. I did however totally forget about the weight change. I'll take that into consideration in my next post. Expect some humor. Unfortunately I can't utilize the werebear's shapechanging ability to change him into the human werebear form, which is sort of silly but there you go.

And sorry about the animal companion. When I was writing the first post I assumed that go off and do what you please would entail draco flying around and enjoying himself at a reasonable distance from town (not much use for him at a social function). I'll be sure to be more explicit with such instructions in the future (at tabletop sessions I've played in animal companion rules have been sort of lose, so I'll be sure to tighten up for this.) :o

Such an amusing admonition.

Vintereth should be fine for such things on the prologue.
  • She has no extra cohorts/followers running around except for her homunculus...but the little bugger is expressly written to stay put and craft magic items, so that's what's happening. (Using the downtime and xp, it could probably be working on her scorpion chain at this point.)
  • She doesn't have most of her natural weapons out, as I'd mentioned earlier how she only had the reasonably unnoticed bite and claw attacks. She does have gloves on after all, so shaking hands will not be a problem.
  • Her Glamered armor will probably stand up to minor scrutiny considering that I'd managed to chop it down from a hulking suit of heavy armor to something that a wizard could wear day and night and not notice - it's like Frodo's mithril chainmail from LotR at this point.
  • Nearly all of her visible equipment can be chalked up to jewelry and other mundane items of clothing; the only thing that can't be is her helm, which falls under the jurisdiction of her armor and can thus be hidden with the Glamering.

Uhoh ... so CustSev has apparently ruled that Legacy Champion levels won't advance Hellfire warlock abilities. Which basically kills half my build (see here). I personally think the ruling is BS, but I'd like Fil's opinion of what to do. I'm thinking that the build is fine as is and we can just ignore the ruling, but if Fil wants to do otherwise I can try to bandaid things up.

Heh, so far I think I've done the most "damage" with a sugar filled pint-sized wreaking ball, and she's barely an NPC.

Hmm, am I the only family man in the whole party? (or at least I used to be)

So far I'm taking things in a pretty light tone. I'm a little contradictory in that I like to write serious characters, but my own posting tendancies tend to have lots of off-kilter humour. I'm sure I'll buckle down once we're knee deep in critters.

"Familiar Pocket" is part of my daily buff sequence - a 1st level spell, duration 1 hour / level, that allows my familiar to hide with total cover and total concealment.

http://killfear.pbwiki.com/Tanner's%20Spell%20List

I'm assuming that at any given time my familiar is either out fetching spells for me, or in the familiar pocket.

Sure - frankly, this took more time than I thought it would (this is my first experience) so feel free to do whatever you like with my cohort.

Default is that Xxklns is possessing Tanner. (http://killfear.pbwiki.com/Fiend%20of%20Possession)

day of mourning roughly 10 years ago.

sorry, david.... gen -- gem -- crystal. honest mistake.
it's an air elemental, right?
familiar pocket is good, but feel freee to us it for RP purposes at will

Honestly, It looks like Zarzak's superbird is the only criter that needs daily maintenance, eh?

just keep yer eyes out for potential there.

I will be integrating them into future text myself as well.
