    I don't have Kingmaker but may eventually - I've really enjoyed the divinity and pillars games. I like how each has a unique set of mechanics; in some ways, translating Pathfinder might be a harder task, though. But they're pretty and I especially liked Divinity's elements.

    I liked that in the Divinity setting, magic is so common place that hobos and normal people on the street can often just naturally shoot fireballs.


    And good luck with the campaign, brandnewb.

    I haven't played Kingmaker, but I have been playing DOS2 lately when I have the time, and it's a pretty solid game. And yeah, kids are big time-suckers, but I've been teaching them a little role-playing too :P

    Did y'all see the trailer for the new Baldur's Gate 3? Larian Studios is doing it, I have high hopes!

    Dang, yeah. If Larian is behind it I have high hopes.

    Does the party have a consensus on whether to tell the Emperor about the cult meeting, or not and deal with it on your own?

    Just performed successful leg replacement surgery in a 5e game IRL. Two fighters, a bard, a cleric, an axe, a man on top of a man, and a dead penguin with the man's legs.

    Crazy. I don't think I've seen PC's do a replacement surgery in any of the games I've played. Must have been some crazy skill checks involved.
    Anyway, I don't know if you're waiting on River or Andrew for anything, but both are just following along for now.

    Does river have any thoughts on whether to tell the Emperor about the invitation to attend the cultist meeting? Right now I think Azrin is leaning away from telling him, and Ed and Olivin are leaning towards telling him.

    Current votes seem to favor telling him. I'll move the scene along later today, gotta work on a few assignments first.

    Generally speaking River prefers open honesty, so I'd say he's in favor of telling him.

    Rerolling the smarts check I messed up:

    Untrained checks are at a -2.

    Would he like to spend a Benny on either of the rolls? The Smarts check has a basic success, while the Notice check fails.

    Nah, I was just a little curious. There are probably more important checks to spend on. We get three bennies, right? How often do they reset? Or do you award them, like our hero point system?

    Normally you get 3 per session, unless you have an Edge/Hindrance that alters it. For the most part I'm treating it as per day.

    I'm all good for this scene, so once Azrin has finished up his conversation I'm ready to move on.

    Azrin is also good I think - sounds like we track down the dwarf prior to the cultist meeting, maybe, if we think there's time. Otherwise I'm fine with doing it after, also.

    Do we have time RW? If it's just a conversation I assume that we do.

    Ed will help out however you like Archy, whether it's buffing you for a Persuasion check, or making the check himself.

    When you guys get a chance to check in on the Rhendric Kingdom Building sub-campaign, please do so. I've completed 1 round for the past week that the party had been traveling, and we are in the midst of a new week while Skivven makes his doppelganger, so I'll need your input for the Edict Phase. Cheers!

    What skill does bluff/lying fall under? Persuasion? Or is it even covered in SW? I can't find anything on it.

    glad to hear everyone near the laptop is ok.

    I'd been curious to see what Olivin was up to with him since he'd started that off but I'm also happy to jump in here if we'd rather. Azrin will just want to know what the objection was.

    Got a new laptop. Still getting used to typing on it, and my desk was too damaged by fire to salvage, so probably won't be posting for a bit. Too uncomfortable to type, saving my effort to work on necessary school work.

    My advice is don't leave a laptop plugged in when the battery is fully charged. The battery was dying, so I kept it plugged in to avoid constantly plugging it in and unplugging it, but it overheated as a result of overcharging it too much and it exploded.

    The hard drive wasn't near the battery and the fire was pretty contained. We're a small city so the fire fighters got there fast. The middle of the desk had a big charred spot, the back of the couch behind the desk had some burnt bits, and it sparked a little leaving charred spots on a few pieces of furniture.

    Hey guys, just wanted to share about a really cool kickstarter campaign I'm backing and try to spread the word! It's for a new roleplaying web app called YARPS. I've been following their progress for the last year and I'm pretty excited about it. The project is already funded, but there are still stretch goals to hit. It has some really cool features, and once it launches I am considering porting one of my campaigns over to it.

    Check out their website HERE

    and their Kickstarter page HERE

    Cheers!

    That is crazy!

    What type of laptop was it? My wife leaves hers plugged in all the time.

    It was an Acer. I'd been pushing the battery pretty hard, so that might have played a role.

    Hey Archy, haven't heard from you in a while on my roll20 campaign. Still interested in playing? I won't be upset if you aren't, I totally understand if it's one thing too many (I feel the same sometimes). Let me know :)
