OK.

My thought on initiative for pbp:
Taeral +4 Init bonus

Quigly +3 Init Bonus

Khim +2 Init Bonus

Morgrym +0 Init Bonus

 

I'll have Taeral roll for initiative against the monsters/etc.

Then, order will proceed based on these bonuses: So, we'll be looking for Taeral's post first, Quigly's second, Khim's 3rd, and then Morgrym to finish up.

 

So, either all the monsters will go first, or all of you.

Roll only once for each encounter.

Delay can change this as follows: Delay until after my party goes: End of the initiative for the party.

Delay until after X party member: move into that spot accordingly.

Delay until after the monsters: End up at the front of the party for next round.

 

Finally, with each non-combat post, go ahead and give me 2 x D20 roll results.

I can use these for Perception/Stealth/Saves, etc for "Secret DM Stuff" built into the module, and it should speed things up.

So something like, 

KHim opens the door to the south, looks around, walks in to the sarcophagus and tries to open it. 

 

I rolled a 7 and 18?

Yes.

So I can say: you walk past the threshold and don't notice the trapped floor (perception 7+5=12).

 

You start to fall into the spiked pit trap, but lunge out of the way! (Reflex 18 + 6 = 24).

 

The sarcophagus is too heavy for one person. You'll have to get help from your friends.

 

That would save 3 posts and lots of time.

Kangaroorex, yes, in addition to the intentional rolls.

Next order of business: what is standard marching order when single file, and when two abreast?

Also, Feel free to work out a standard operating procedure: example is "OK, Quigley takes 10 to look for traps at all doors before we open them. If he doesn't find any, take 20. If he still doesn't find any, go back to my place in marching order and let Taeral open the door.

My suggestion for this is

 

Ranger

Cleric

Rouge

Monk

 

and for 2 abrest

 

Cleric ranger

rouge Monk

 

I am just offering it as a suggestion though.  The cleric should be near the front or in the front as the channel and heal spells are all close or touch range and his ranged skills are pretty lame. 

 

Any other thoughts?

      Yet another speed paint, this one pretty much human sized.  I'm thinking of using this one in a Frostgrave warband.  It's not exactly human, but I think that works in the setting (there are beast crafters after all).  If I do decide to use it in a warband I think I'll have to base it on something standard.

      My pathfinder Sarenite paladin, Zekir, has picked up a couple of followers. The first is Aysun, an oracle. I did a little conversion and painted up 77217: Mi-Sher by Julie Guthrie to represent this daughter of the desert, diviner of the Dawnflower, and servant of the spirits of her ancestors. I cut off her left hand and scimitar and replaced them with the left hand of 77091: Nienna, Female Elf Ranger by Werner Klocke.
       
      I also eventually lopped off her other scimitar, before deciding to keep it after all and pinning it back on. The brooch in her left hand is made from a tiny washer and a rhinestone.
       
      She is painted up to match Zekir's color scheme.

      Oakhurst,
       
      Kythorn (June) 13th (a week before the Summer Solstice) in the year of 1493 CR
       
      The town of Oakhurst lies about 3 hexes (whatever the scale is) NW of the ruins of Thundertree. The area surrounding the small town of only 900 people consists of dusty plains & very little vegetation. There are some tiny trees, sapling mainly here & there but nothing noteworthy. There are a range of hills to the north. These eventually turn into mountains & the most noteworthy peak, Mt Hotenow sits in the middle of them. Also near the town is a great forest that extends to the south & the north, the mysterious Neverwinter Wood. The party, begin it's journey is the city of Neverwinter. A small parchment tacked to a bulletin board saying
       
      "Adventures Wanted! Please inquiry at Ol Boar Inn in Oakhurst"
       
      You have traveled the New Road to get to the small town. You are at the outskirts of the town, where the road splits into two roads, You have arrived around noon, the heat of late spring season starting to rise. The buildings are in decent shape, most noteworthy is the Mayor's building & the General Store being the best kept of the town. You recognize the Ol Boar Inn, by the large, hanging wooden sign with a stylized boar on it:
       

       
      The townsfolk eye you but don't give you any troubles. You see the town consists mostly of humans, with a smattering of the other common races of the Realms. One catches your eye, a female gnome wearing a bright color robe with a pendent around her neck:
       

       
      She  is at what appears to be a small temple. She sees you & offers a greeting
       
      "Welcome to Oakhurst. May Lathander's morning light shine upon you all in the morning."

      So I for the Fall Exchange of 2015, I got @Keianna as my partner. She requested something she could use in gaming, and let me know that they were running through Wrath of the Righteous. I looked through the types of monsters and characters in the PDF I snagged (with some free money from either Reaper or Gen Con or something) and looked for something in my collection that would fit the bill.  02923: Princess of Hell was a great match for one of the NPC's, a succubus by the name of Vellexia. That as part of the module, the adventurers have to find a way to entertain, one way or another. 
       
      In the module, she looks like this:
       
      And here is my interpretation of her in miniature form:

       
      More pictures below the cut (The same really, but with different exposure settings)
       
       
      I hope you all enjoy her! She has a good home with Keianna.

      Having finished up my historical Dragoon, I decided to switch gears work on a fantasy project.  A while back I'd agreed to help out with the Ouroborus Tales Kickstarter and provide a 'painting journal' describing how I went about painting one of the orcs from that project.  The figures arrived a few weeks ago, so I wanted to make sure that was up next on my to-paint list.  The official painting journal is only for the project backers, but I can still share work in progress and info online.  But the painting journal will have more detailed step by step photos and a more in-depth discussion (sorry, gotta save some secrets for that! =P).  Because I like to get the most out of this project, I'm also planning to enter the piece into the 'Eavier Metal painting competition over on their facebook group.
       
      For anyone not familiar with the sculpt, here's what the orc brave looks like:

       
      It's a nice sculpt, roughly 54mm scale (though smaller than the Black Sailors figures which look closer to 75mm).  The title makes me think native american, but there aren't any overtly native american features (features, headdress, etc).  The weapons and clothing are primitive so I'm leaning more towards the savage orcs from the warhammer fluff.
       
      There's a lot of skin on this guy (no armor covering it up), so I wanted to do something with the green to keep it interesting.  I decided to go with a two-tone skin.  So green on the back/sides and an off white on the belly.  Helps convey a more primitive animalistic look to him.  I'm also going to work in more color variation in select spots.
       
      Still at a very early stage.  I've base coated a lot of the piece and sketched in the shadows on the body.  My main focus has been the face, where I've done the green portions and details like the eyes, nose, and lips.  I still need to do the teeth, inside of the ears, white on the bottom of the jaw, and add some glazes.  But, this gives you an idea where it's going.  I'm taking the skin one section at a time, so after this I'll probably try to tackle that left arm and then move on to other parts of the body.  I'm enjoying the piece so far, but still have lots to do!
