The Godsmouth Heresy

Recommended Posts

Ma'alik waits for Sturgis to call forth the light of Sarenrae.  "Shall we proceed?"  When his companions signal their consent, he sets his shield, draws his scimitar, and twists and shrugs his torso to settle his armor.  He then leads the way down the stairwell. (unless Janalyth desires to lead the way).


Edit: Extra rolls

For the time being he was happy to let Ma'alik lead the way down, while he followed along in silence, keeping watch an ear out for trouble below. His longbow in hand and ready, though he didn't bother putting an arrow to the string yet, preferring to keep at least one hand free for now

taking 10 on the check on the door for a 17 to learn if I can open it from this side

Sillilial looks blankly at the door, obviously trying to figure out what just happened, then seeing the party is about to move out dreamily follows in there wake continuing a whispered conversation to no one in particular.

You make it half way down the stairs when everything goes dark.


The light spell is not functioning in here now.


Janalyth, roll for initiative for the group.


Anyone with Darkvision will see normally.

As the light spell vanished without warning he moved to the side of the stairs, and knowing he wouldn't be able to hit anything with his bow if he couldn't see it, he slung it over his shoulder and placed a hand on the hilt of his sword. hissing out a direction to be quiet as he strained his ears to hear something (yes that is my first combat action, fit in wherever if/when we lose init and get ambushed)

Monster initiative is 21.


Those of you with Darkvision see a disgusting squid like stalactite drop from the ceiling to attack Ma'alik.

Based on its trajectory, it seems to have rudimentary flight.


It tries to slam its body into Ma'alik, but misses.

(4+3 = 7) it will land in front of Ma'alik.


Janalyth is next. He shoulders his bow and prepares to draw steel. (OOC do you draw your sword?)


Silillial is next.

(OOC yes. Sheathing a weapon is a move action, shouldering your bow should be the same. Drawing a weapon is a move action unless you are moving and have BAB + 1, then you can do it with movement).

Once he is able to act, Sturgis will go to a full defense, using the wall as a back so heis not attacked from that side.

Ma'alik swings his scimitar ahead of him, figuring that that is the only open area the creature, whatever it is, could be in.


Attack: (d20)9+5=14 (50% miss chance; I'll let the DM roll)

Damage: (d6)5+4=9


"Some light would be greatly appreciated!"

Sillilial starts a complex casting using words of power.


Ma'alik swings his scimitar in a wide arc in front of him, but fails to hit anything.


Sturgis backs himself up against the stair railing, in an area as close to the wall as he can get, trying to protect himself however he can.

Round two starts with the enemy taking another swipe at Ma'alik. It manages to wrap a tentacle around his arm, doing 2 points of damage, and trying to GRAB Ma'alik, but Ma'alik uses all of his might to break free of the tentacles grasp before it could CONSTRICT him.


It then flies up and latches onto the ceiling.


Janalyth is up

"we could really use some light in here" He called out as he drew a dagger in his off hand and tried to work his way to the front of the group in the dark.

      Here is the latest of my Pathfinder figures that I painted: Barzillai Thrune (#60205). 
      I sculpted this figure last year and he was newly available at ReaperCon 2017.  If you go to ReaperCon this year, you can see this figure in person.
      As with Octavio Sabinus (link to my Show-Off thread), Barzillai also appears in the Pathfinder Adventure Path "Hell's Rebels" as a major NPC: link to cover image of #97. (Wayne Reynolds painted the cover art.  The armor makes me think of a shark.)
      Barzillai is the new lord-mayor in Kintargo, and his notions of law and order are going to provoke a lot of resentment, especially from the PCs!
      I wanted the base to evoke a city under siege, so I sculpted the stone rubble out of Aves Apoxie Sculpt, and stuck some toothpicks in as stakes.

      I know there are plenty of RPG players on the board, and Zweihander just won ENnies for Best Game and Product of the Year at Gen Con.  I missed the first campaign, but strongly considering jumping in on this one.

      OK everyone.
      As promised, I want to jump into the Pathfinder 2nd edition playtest.
      I can't pass up on a free "Superdungeon."
      I want 4 players.  For the sake of the Playtest, let's not duplicate races or classes.
      The rulebook is available for free download at www.paizo.com.
      I hope to update pretty frequently.
      Attributes are not rolled!
      For the Module, you have to pick a Background from the following list.
      Budding Osirionologist: The secrets buried in the seemingly endless sands of the nation of Osirion have long intrigued you, even though you've never actually visited the nation.  Some day, you hope to correct that.
        Choose two ability boosts. One must be Dexterity or Intelligence, and one is a free ability boost.
        You gain the Terrain Stalker (Rubble) Feat, and you're trained in the Ancient Osirion Lore skill.
      Esoteric Scion: One of your family members belongs to a semisecret society called the Esoteric Order of the Palatine Eye.  You've long held an interest in perhaps some day joining the order and have studied the strange topics in preparation for that day.

         You gain the Quick Identification Feat, and you're trained in the Esoteric Order Lore skill.

         Choose two ability boosts.  One must be Charisma or Intelligence, and one is a free ability boost.
         You gain the Hobnobber Feat, and you're trained in the Nobility Lore skill
      Goblin Renegade: You had been working with a gang of goblin burglars, but that new leader was not good.  It took a lot of guts to stand up to him, but you survived!  Now you're stuck with the longshanks, but maybe you can get back at the old boss.
         Choose two ability boosts.  One must be Dexterity or Charisma, and one is a free ability boost.
         You gain the Quick Repair feat, and you're trained in the Criminal Lore skill.

         You gain the Dubious Knowledge feat, and you're trained in the Dominion of the Black Lore skill..

      I now have an idea of what I want for the campaign - warring Seasonal Lords - with Spring and Autumn remaining neutral.
      One idea is to build in some forks via the encounter tables - with one result on the standard encounter table being a Unique Encounter - which happens once - but sets up the next Unique Encounter, so that a given series of Unique Events occurs sequentially..
      Seasons are tied to the elements - Spring = Water; Summer = Fire; Autumn = Earth; Winter = Air.
      The area has no churches, and no clerics - but does have witches and druids. If a PC is a cleric then he or she is 'from away' - and is never entirely trusted.
      I think that I may have the campaign traits tied to plot secrets.
      Anyway - ideas?
      The start of one song from the background -
      Iron axe and iron blade,
      Each shall slay a faerie babe.
      With each an aelphling child must die,
      Hush, my baby, don't you cry....
      That the mere presence of mankind, dwarfkind, and others is killing the fey - and that those races view it as a good thing.
      One inspiration - for me, but not to be included with the adventure is Joseph Rodman Drake's The Culprit Fay (1819)
      (Spoilered, because long 19th Century poem that may not interest anybody else)
