Hmm, I can think of something that's always useful. A Handy Haversack. Costs 2000, but if you guys are working together, plus haggling equals maybe some money left over.

Oh man... it's like a bag of holding on steroids. Anywho, I have no money, because my crystal costs exactly 100 Plat pieces.

Well, given that Themman isn't going with Cord's plan to buy Mount Eyeball, I could use a few suggestions on what would be appropriate items for me. >.>

It stinks that most of the awesome items in the game still cost an arm and a leg... but the Wizard could purchase new spells to add to his spellbook, at least.

I kinda wish I had access to Turn Undead, actually. Being a subvariety of cleric would definitely give me a hundred ideas on what I want to purchase in the future. And I'd be a Necromancer's worst nightmare if I could make his minions litterally burn... but that's not very Healer-y...

If I wasn't using Halo as a mule right now, I'd be upset that I hadn't thought of that first....

.... I forget, is anyone else maxing out both Charisma and Diplomacy? Or is it just me?

Granted, I'm not sure how she'd haggle in character...

"Can we have this for less than it normally costs?"
"No!"
"Please?"
"NO!"
"Pretty please?"
"D'aww... alright..."
"Yay! Thank you!"

I wonder about having more people in the party now... a warriorish type would definitely appreciate a Masterwork Weapon... and maybe we could invest in some armor ourselves...

Daven's sword....he kinda wills the thing through stuff. He doesn't slice so much as tear through it.

Also, Daven's 18 STR vs Rurik's 13 would like a word with you.

Considering the Cha involved in being a healer and generally a good person, I figured it would be Alex.

Oh, most definitely. Nothing like internal bleeding and driving people into the dirt like living nails for a good time.


Heh, I'm focusing int and nothing else. That is one character type we never did get though: a face.

Technically, we never got a Trap Finder or a Sneaky Type either. And depending on how You and Themman use your abilities, we might have room for an additional Arcane Caster, be it Buffs, Utility, or Blasting.

Heck, depending on what Daven is like, we could have room for another Melee Beat-stick, Extra Thick to Tank or Super Hard to Damage. And since Alex is most definitely a Healer, a Cleric for the sake of combat might also be useful.

There's a lot this party could use. But I'm sure we'll be fine. We don't need everything.


Considering the Cha involved in being a healer and generally a good person, I figured it would be Alex.

She won't be Bluffing or Intimidating her way out of a paper bag... though if you don't mind Diplomancy, a sweet smile and manners might be enough to be useful.


And just because Alex can't haggle doesn't mean others can't assist.

Cord can help! If not, nothing like a show of Arcane/Psionic Force to get your point across....

While I'm having fun with everyone here, I enjoy big groups.

..... why does -EVERYONE- recommend sending minions into traps? Am I the only person that appreciates the prepared players that deal with traps without requiring someone step into them!?!

I do appreciate the effort, but when you have a.) a player who has a chance of setting it off himself but a pretty good chance of stopping it, or b.) a minion who will simply set the trap off while the party is @ a safe distance with 100% accuracy and not having a trap behind us that the GM can simply use later and have potential ramifications? I mean, I do like the sneaky sneaky stabbity stab of a thief in terms of SNEAK ATTACK!!!!, but there's a better option for thievery, imo.

While I understand this, which is why I personally am not opposed to minions like this (and in character, if the constructs are created and destroyed only on the psionics, I don't see any reason for Alex to opposite either, even if it might be a bit scary), my biggest concern is how to determine if the traps may or may not be big enough that there isn't a practical safe distance without having to retreat back enough for it to be a nusiance, or such things like that. Seems like being able to beat and disable every trap that comes by is more safe.

That's easy. Walk a distance back where there weren't any traps, send it in, if anything goes boom, you'll be safe (usually)!

Famous last thoughts? Still messed up if the trap affect is larger than the safe distance percieved. Or if it sets off other traps that were latant.

Also, do you -always- have Constructs walking 100 ft ahead of you? If not, how do you detect traps? And "with your hp going down" is not an acceptable answer.

I have no problem trying to help haggle (unless someone else can beat a +8 right now). I'm just still unsure of what to purchase....

It seems to me like Cirophi or Themman would be a bit more forceful in terms of personality, even if Alex has a higher Charisma. Politeness and Ettiquite would be good reasons for letting the others have a word in edgewise, with her speaking for them as needed.

I have absolutely no idea what anything except Warblade is in that sentence.

Overlord Rion
2012-07-02, 10:51 PM
Okay, let me break it down.


Swashbucker-Take Fighter Bonus stuff, and replaces with stuff like free Weapon Finesse, a scaling dodge bonus, and int to damage when using weapon finesse.

Warblade-Well, you know what this is.

Iaijutsu Master- Look up Iaijutsu focus, then look up this class in Oriental Adventures. Take 5 levels of this PrC, and suddenly your damage against flatflooted guys skyrockets.

Hengeyokai- Also in OA, this is a race of animals that gained the ability to turn into a humanoid form and a hybrid form. They have the Shapechanger subtype, which qualifies them for Warshaper.

TechnOkami
2012-07-23, 06:57 AM
And now I need to ask about a mechanical game-thing which I need clarified.


Independent Research

A psion also can research a power independently, duplicating an existing power or creating an entirely new one. If characters are allowed to develop new powers, use these guidelines to handle the situation.

Any kind of manifester can create a new power. The research involved requires access to a retreat conducive to uninterrupted meditation. Research involves an expenditure of 200 XP per week and takes one week per level of the power. At the end of that time, the character makes a Psicraft check (DC 10 + spell level). If that check succeeds, the character learns the new power if her research produced a viable power. If the check fails, the character must go through the research process again if she wants to keep trying.

This is an optional way to gaining new powers which is by DM approval. The only other way is to get powers by spending a feat to get a new power. I'd rather not have to do the latter if I can help it, which is why I need to know if I can do it or not.

The only other way I could possibly gain more Powers (other than leveling up obviously) is if I came across a nice old Telepath who decided to use Psychic Chirurgery (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/psionic/powers/psychicChirurgery.htm) on me. I think that shtick would have to be saved for a special moment of sorts, though.

Also, I don't believe I made this clear: I need to know so I can clearly tell Themman if I can possibly learn a power to help the situation sooner or later, depending on your answer.

I'm going to allow it, but there are of course restrictions. It'll be kinda like doing homework as I'm going to want examples of what other powers at the same level can do.

The DC is also going to be fluid based on the power you're trying to create. If it's a kind of power similar to what you normally use, it'll be lower, but if it's something out of your comfort zone, higher DC.

Same goes for spell research, btw.

Yup. I'm honestly not super interested in making my own powers (though that could be fun once I have EXP to spend), but I'm mainly using this so I can just be able to research other Psionic Powers that already exist.

I don't believe I could make Powers that duplicate the effects of Spells though... that level of shenanigannery belongs to the Erudite and his Spell to Power conversion alt. rules, which are floating somewhere online.

It's actually a common misconception that you need to starve yourself to get in shape. If you do, your body starts eating -itself- to gain nutrients, which is the last thing you want it to do.

It's possible to be fit and be strong while still enjoying food. You just have to eat smart. No Bacon Cheese Bacon Burgers with Extra Bacon and Bacon Sauce, toped with Bacon and served with a side of Extra Bacon Salted Bacon Fries.

I have a gym membership for 15 bucks a month. Given paychecks from 200-400 per every 2 weeks, it's not much of a sacrifice there, especially since the Gym is 24-7.

Weird... I can see it just fine. And yeah, between a complete lack of armor, and only average flexibility, Alex is sitting on an AC of 10.

Also, a single more point of damage (lethal or non-lethal), and Alex would be out of the fight. It's a good thing she's got a good Constitution. Characters like Big Con's and they can not lie....

Anyway, does Halo get to act now, since his earlier action was just his readied action?

.... I had assumed Halo wouldn't have been able to reach for an Attack of Opportunity. He's been chasing and charging this guy for the past few minutes, and the guy's been tumbling about, staying out of reach except for when Halo attempts to rush and bite him. Could I have been making Attacks of Opportunity all this time? Do I get one this turn or something?

Alex doesn't actually carry any healing items on herself, actually. She heals by hand alone. 10 seconds of being touched by her feels as good for the body as a full dosage of Cure Light Wounds.

I'm surprised the system is so focused on simply killing things. You'd think it'd be easier to do non-lethal, via a penalty to damage or attack, based on pulling your punches or trying not to hit a spot that might hurt.

Darn unconciousness... any chance someone wants to frisk the Thief and see if he's got anything on him to help wake someone up? Or is unconciousness due to Non-Lethal requiring specifically a quick heal?

I think I asked this, but I can't remember if I got an answer or not.

There's Use Psionic Device, Psicraft and Knowledge (Psionics), and there are rules that basically blur these with the Arcana equivalents to make them essentially one and the same. Can we go with that rule, or do you decree otherwise? Either or would work, honestly, because Themman can be the Arcanamaster while I'm the Psimaster, but the blurring would make it easier for both of us, because we would essentially be able to use each others stuff, or perhaps one of us being a knowledge specialist while the other is a usage specialist, or something like that.

If he's just a random thief, no harm done either way. Halo can knock him out and we can be on our way.

If he's been hired to kill us, he should share who immediately wants us dead and why.

If he's the contact, then that should be verified before anything bad happens!

After I read the white text: *insert thoughts about Themman being taken advantage of, because blind*

Eh, not likely. Not something Alex really notices on someone else unless she's got a crush, and she usually share a platonic love with everyone that would get in the way of that. I see her actually being ignorant about such things until the subject comes up.

Have I shared my thoughts on Stats and personal appearance, particularly when it comes to body types?

You don't have to entirely retcon it; I could have Alex take 10 on searching his pockets and find the note. If so, you'd just repost the thief's note as Alex's finding, and give Cirophi her actual message where the thief's note was. Heck, she is already looking him over, now that I think about it.

I can see how that makes sense in an overall rounded view, though so much of the system is dirrectly tied to core mechanics that there'd still be quite a few wrinkles to iron out.

I wonder about going in and personally modifying every single broken thing in core, be it -too- overpowered (Polymorph and the like), or too weak (Monk's lack of synergy in abilities and randomness in additional techs).

So, I'm actually pretty sure, and the main reason I still had a bit of surprise that this game hadn't been waiting on me again, was because, from where I stand, we're waiting on our Dm to advance to the next stage of the plot. Or are any of us missing any interaction?
