This is the OOC thread for my Kithen: Overrun by the Undead Campaing.

Everyone should make a post acknowledging that they have reached this thread as well as claiming a color for their character to talk in.

Kumori, if you would be so kind as to post another table containing the finalists, I would greatly appreciate it.

I'll put the IC link in the post as soon as it is up.

Kumori: Could you just switch Kaballa to Vishra in Doc_Pippin's entry into the table. He's using the new character.

Now, before I get started there is one thing that I need to mention. As far as party balance goes, I have one major concern. A few of you have stats that are quite a bit higher than everyone else's respective stats. Razorback, any creature capable of hitting you would almost always hit everyone else. distant quasar, your saves are quite a bit higher than everyone else's. I'm not concerned by anyone's attack bonuses or hit points.

I would just like to ask that you, distant quasar, find a way to tone down your saves a bit to put them more in line with everyone else. (One in the thirties is fine, but having them all over 40 makes you pretty much immune to everything that requires a save.) Razorback, I'd also like you tone down your AC. Put it somewhere in the forties so that things can actually hit you. I'm sorry to ask you guys of this, but the game is no fun if one or two people are vastly more powerful than everyone else. I can't balance an encounter as easily with such discrepancies in the stats. They can still be higher than everyone else's, as that's obviously where one of your strength's lie, but somewhere around 5 points higher would be preferable to a 15-20 points difference.

Regarding the AC variance, Godricks AC isn't his primary defense. He doesn't even have any items that help improve it (+Dex not withstanding). My defense comes mostly from Blurred Alacrity (concealment) and Evasive Celerity (essentially concealment against targeted spells), occasionally boosted by Greater Mirror Image.

@ the Party: Should we discuss our combat tactics, or wing it through first encounter and discuss that after the fact IC?

Doc_Pippin
2012-12-23, 01:30 AM
Im a mid range defensive fighter who can shut down opponents one or two at a time. My main method is sand tombing the weak willed opponents or using AoE burst moves to slay mooks, I carry some healing and a lot of utility spells.

GFawkes
2012-12-23, 02:04 AM
I think I qualify as a very long range fighter with various supporting/field control abilities. Main combat style is to be constantly moving, taking full-attacks only when the enemy is very far away.

Medic!
2012-12-23, 10:15 AM
Kara combat tactics are (hopefully) mostly centered around channeling cleric touch spells through reach weapons to buff/heal the party and/or debuff/deal (hopefully) copious amounts of damage to the enemy. I still need to dive into the specifics of a few spells I chose b/c I'm a baddie, but the gist of it is doing things like full-attack channeling things like Heal, Enlarge Person, Disrupting Weapon, Toxic Weapon, Bestow Curse, Touch of Idiocy, Withering Palm, Harm, or any number of empowered+maximized cure spells.

I'm hoping everyone (players and DM) are ok with PCs allowing me to hit them to save me spells per day :smallamused:

razorback
2012-12-23, 10:36 AM
Razorback, I'd also like you tone down your AC. Put it somewhere in the forties so that things can actually hit you.

Ok, so I see a couple of easy ways to accomplish this.
1) Either Arcane Aegis doesn't work on Earon (but, that means I can still provide a +12 morale to AC to up to 3 allies in 30') which would put him at 47.
2)I could dump War Mage altogether. I'd have to redo the character and would probably take Initiate of the Seven Fold Veil, with your permission, and, possibly dumping Master Transmogrifist2 to accomplish this since I saw the 2 tied together, but it would really only mean a different feat selection but I'd gain a CL back. Or, War Weaver from Heroes of Battle with some minor changes.

The former is easier while allowing Earon to pump up a couple of others AC's, creating something of a safe zone around him.
The latter would change him from being an abj/evoc/trans almost exclusively to more of an abjurist.

Either way works for me as it doesn't greatly vary the main them of Earon. Let me know your thoughts and we'll make it happen.

razorback
2012-12-23, 10:46 AM
Should we discuss our combat tactics
Earon is primarily lockdown in combat. With Thicket of Blades, Combat Reflexes-Karmic Strike, and the 20' reach of Thunderlance he should be able to hold the line, so to speak. He can Enlarge or Polymorph to increase the threat range as needed.
Magic is either defensive or buffing in nature, with some utility.

distant quasar
2012-12-23, 05:07 PM
Serrane will focus on battlefield control though illusion spells and some enchantment abilities. He also has some nice ranged blasting abilities and a few other tricks from invocations and SLAs.

Kumori
2012-12-24, 01:55 AM
I suppose I should state my tactics too.

Godrick is a hit-and-run kinda guy. 100' move action with a full attack somewhere in the middle. He has magic as a back-up for when melee fails, but mostly prepares self-buffs.

Aww poop.... as I'm typing this, I just realized I can't persist Haste. Without that, I may have to switch out some of my feats (as that was something I was aiming for with my selection). Anyone know if there's a metamagic I add in that will make it fit the "personal or fixed" range requirement?

GFawkes
2012-12-24, 02:20 AM
Don't think there's a metamagic feat for that, and all magic items I can think of have a set duration for haste. Best I can think of is take a Craft feat and make an item that has a permanent haste effect on the wearer. The downside of being permanently hasted is outlined here (http://www.seanbaby.com/superfriends/flash.htm#SUPERTHEATER).

That wouldn't trigger all the swiftblade goodies that go with it :smallannoyed:

Edit: Well, I guess I could ditch the persist feat in favor of Improved Initiative for a +24 total. Hmm... Yeah that sounds good, unless someone can help me persist it.

GFawkes
2012-12-24, 03:01 AM
Hmm....

I read over the Swiftblade class, and I think I've found a solution:



Sudden Casting (Ex): At 3rd level, you learn how to seamlessly cast the haste spell. You can cast haste as a free action once per round, as if augmented by the Quicken Spell metamagic feat, but without using up higher-level spell slots.

It's not quite persisting, but slap extend spell on that and you've got a free 36 rounds of haste. If we don't finish the encounter in that time, we're doing something wrong

That's pretty much what I'm planning now. Haven't made the changes to spells prepped, but extending it is probably unnecessary. CL 22 = 22 rounds already, 44 if extended. I'm thinking 3 preps of it is likely enough.

hpboy111, I made the change from War Mage to War Weaver. Let me know if there are any issues with this.
I forgot that I would loose another caster level if I did that, so I'm staying War Mage but fluffed it that Arcane Aegis doesn't affect him.

GFawkes, what are you using to simulate Elven?

GFawkes
2012-12-27, 01:32 AM
I used the Races of the Wild elven name thingy, and just mashed up words. When there was a word I needed that wasn't there, I either made something up (like "Ui" for "I'm") or looked for something close enough and then tweaked it slightly.

Please don't tell me I've made a very strong insult to someone in a language I've never spoken.:smalleek:

EDIT: Here's the full breakdown of how I got that phrase, for those interested:

Ui: Made it up. I needed a phrase for "I'm".
Nuitasvara: Character name. Kinda obvious why it follows "I'm"
feraess: Combination of the prefix fera- (champion) and the suffix -ess (feminine form of elf/elven)
i'Rahdolilys: the prefix i' is something I made up to show that a word is a title, like the difference between being a champion and the Champion. Rahd is the suffix for leaf, lys is the suffix for breeze. oli is something I made up to mean "on the". Yes, it is a reference.
iln: word I made up to mean "and"
alisyn: the suffix -yn means "bringer", and the other part (alis) is a modification of the suffix for dawn (-anis)

razorback
2012-12-27, 08:46 AM
Not at all offended. I thought that maybe you were using the ICE MERP/RM one that came out a while back or some one from Dragon. If so, I was going to dig it up in order to keep any elvish dialogue the same.

Just to be clear, Godrick didn't draw his sword. He pulled it loose in it's scabbard, but didn't take it out.

As for the elvish, were my character to speak it, I'd've translated it into Quenya, which is one of the two Elfish languages Tolkien used.

I apologize as I had to leave town suddenly due to a childhood friends mother passing away. I got back last night but now I have to play catch up around the house. I'll try to post up later but it will probably be in the morning.

Just so y'all know, more than one person can post in between my posts. :P

So, only the two of you? If that's the case, I'm going to have to let this die...

You and Kara. It seems like you two post most often. If it's just you two, then I may just have to let this one die, or have y'all find yet another dm.
