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).

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

10+7=17

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.

Init

13+5=18

 

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.

      Fantasy Grounds Unity is the name of the upcoming version of our virtual tabletop software, Fantasy Grounds. It's been completely rebuilt from the ground up in Unity. Read on to find out what this all means and why we are excited for this project.
      Fantasy Grounds is a popular system for playing a host of different roleplaying games online.  It is used by more than 130,000 gamers worldwide to connect and play popular games such as Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, Savage Worlds, Call of Cthulhu, and more.  This type of program is commonly referred to as a virtual tabletop, or VTT, due to their ability to emulate various part of an RPG session in a digital form.
      What makes Fantasy Grounds different than competitors is how we expose character sheets and automate large portions of gameplay specifically for each system we support.  This is done through rulesets.  Your experience playing Deadlands Reloaded will differ from D&D and will be unique to that environment, contain custom graphics, character sheets, and automation specific to that game system.  
      One feature shared across most game systems is maps.  Some may use hexes while others use square grids and some may not use grids at all.  Facing is important in some and less so in others.  While FG has featured maps for many years, they have been primarily focused as reproductions of maps in existing adventure modules from our many licensed publishers. We believe that we can enhance these to provide dynamic line of sight, fog of war, and even map building support with painting and tiles.
      What you get for backing this project will be a license for Fantasy Grounds Unity (or FGU). This new game engine has all the great features of current version of Fantasy Grounds (soon to be called Fantasy Grounds Classic) along with new enhanced features. 
      Original Features Supported:
      Multiplayer support for playing tabletop games of Dungeons & Dragons (2E, 3.5E, 4E and 5E), Pathfinder RPG 1, Pathfinder RPG 2, Starfinder. Built-in content for D&D 3.5E, 5E and Pathfinder 1 Officially licensed add-on content available for D&D, D&D Classics (2E), Pathfinder, Starfinder, Savage Worlds, Call of Cthulhu, Basic Roleplaying, Castles & Crusades, Mutants & Masterminds, 13th Age, W.O.I.N., Traveller, and Rolemaster Classic Generic system support through our CoreRPG ruleset Brilliant Campaign Management Integrated character sheets with lots of automation built in for playing and leveling (depending on ruleset and content owned) Combat Tracking 3D dice Fantasy Grounds Unity Enhanced Features Include:
      64-bit support to allow for more content (quality and quantity) Native support for Mac, Linux and Windows PC Network lobby for easy hosting and joining of games (no port forwarding required) Tile based map building Enhanced Drawing Tools Additional Dice Macros support A new FGU only skin Dynamic Line of Sight with enhanced toggle blockers Paint with images, such as walls Animated image effects Backward compatibility with all existing campaigns and DLC from FGC In addition to these features, we are now poised to add even greater functionality going forward. We have lots of ideas for new features and this rebuilt engine will make it easier for us reach those goals and deliver consistent updates for free. 
      Tile based Map Building
      Dynamic Line of Sight (LOS) and Fog of War (FOW)
      Map Fx Layers
      We have already devoted over 4 years and 10,000 developer hours to this project. Any funds raised will help us push it over the edge and begin work on new features and functionality. If the project does exceptionally well, this may even allow us to add even more resources to the team.
      We have over 1200 existing DLC and add-ons. Our goal is to prioritize these by popularity and work on enhancing as many of these as we can. Without enhancements, they will continue to function as they always have in Fantasy Grounds Classic. You will be able to add dynamic line of sight to maps and begin using the new features straight away. As we work through this large back catalog of DLC, we will do all the enhancement and upgrade work for you so you can just load it up and begin using the advanced features without having to define any Line of Sight blockers yourself.

      Since Callie is coming to a close, I have been preparing the Oxidation Beast.
       
      I have one in metal also, so I will paint both together.
       
      I had some 40mm hollow, round lipped bases that seem like a good fit.  I used some styrene model train cobblestone for one, and sculpted dressed stone tiles for the other.
       

       
      I plan for one to use the 5th Edition Monster Manual color scheme (Bones)

       
      And the metal one to follow the Pathfinder Bestiary 1 color scheme.  It has a red with black stipple color scheme.

      This was a very fun group to paint.  They also went very fast.  I finished them in January, but just got around to photographing them.
      I can't pick a favorite, they all have so much personality.  I tried some OSL on the fire elemental's base.
      The camera settings were changed on the solo shots of the air elemental to tone down the white from overpowering.
      It ended up kind of dark.
      Enjoy.

      I love this model.  Even with her slightly too-long sword hilt and bendy sword.  I straightened it, but it has slowly bent again.
      This is a figure to represent a female paladin of Sarenrae for our Pathfinder Reign of Winter campaign: a redhead whose favorite color is green.  That is why she is on a snow base.
      I wanted to spend a lot of time on her, and am very happy with the blending on the gray NMM.  It took about 3 rounds of painting transitions then glazing over the lines to smooth everything out.
      I tried a little weathering to the leather scabbards and belt to make them look scratched from adventuring use. 
      This was also the first time I tried giving a female figure makeup: blush, eye shadow, and lipstick.  I'm not sure how good that came out, I'll let you all tell me.
      The sword blade was the least successful part.  It just didn't want to cooperate, which is due in part to the softer details on the casting.
      I hope you like her as much as I do.  C&C Welcome.

      The MapForge software (which runs on Mac & Windows) was designed to create customized tactical-scale battlemaps for RPGs, and is already supported by an impressive 80+ mapping content Add-Ons (12 of which are free!) covering all major game genres. Maps produced with the software can either be printed for use at the gaming table, or used in virtual tabletop software such as Roll20 or Fantasy Grounds.
       
      But despite the wealth of fantasy mapping content already available, GMs have been clamoring for even more. So we've got some great new content lined up, and are raising funds to cover the porting/development costs.
       
      Click here or on the image below to check out the latest Kickstarter campaign for MapForge, which just launched two days ago.
       

       
       
      Note that the software itself is already developed and available (though a new version is due out later this month); this crowdfunding campaign is only to fund the development/porting of the new fantasy-genre mapping content.
       
      Fairly quick delivery of rewards is expected (August), and there are no shipping costs involved, since it's all digital downloads.
       
      Campaign launched on: May 22, 2019
      Campaign ends on: June 17, 2019
       
      Some boardgamers and wargamers were quick to catch on that the software can also be used to produce custom game boards or tiles for games such as Myth, Descent, HeroQuest, Aliens, Skull Tales, and many others.
