Proposed next Sunday Game - 11/10/13

Due to other weekend activities, we will not be gaming this Sunday. I propose that we plan for the following Sunday, 11/10/13, with a start time of 3:00.

Will that work for folks?

Our Next Game is Sunday 10/13/13

Our next game is this Sunday. Let's plan to start around 3:00. David will not be available until around 5:00 as he has to work but his character is currently incapacitated.

I expect Corey and Alan is likely but he needs info for making a character. We are currently using a 39 point buy for characteristic ( and a modified max HP ( I think that everyone is 6th level (or soon will be). 12,000 GP seems like a reasonable amount to purchase starting gear.

Our next game date

Our next scheduled date would have been Sunday, 10/6/13, but I am not avaialable that day. Sarah and I will be out of town and I am not sure when we will get back home.

I am proposing that we try for Sunday, 10/13/13 instead. How does that look for folks?

Do we need to consider starting later now that David's work schedule will keep him from getting there until around 5:00? Or do we want to plan to play something different until he arrives? .i.e. card game, board game, other RPG.

Next game, Sunday 9/8/13

I am available to run the Sunday game on 9/8/13. Who will be able to make that date?

So far it looks to work for Dave and Bruce.

Game this Sunday, 8/4/13

I sent an e-mail last night but I will post on the blog too.

This Sunday is our scheduled session for the Sunday game. If we get enough players, I will plan to run Legacy of Fire. If not we can play some PFS.

Please let me know if you are planning to attend so that I can be properly prepared.

Our Next Sunday Game

Our next Sunday game is scheduled for 7/7/13. That is the weekend my family is planning to celebrate the 4th of July and I will not be available on that day. Is there another day that we can agree upon or should we plan to skip July?

Game this Sunday 6/2/13

We are scheduled to play Legacy of Fire this Sunday at Bruce's. The game is scheduled to start around 2:00ish.

Game this Sunday, 5/5/13

Our next scheduled session is this Sunday, 5/5/13. I am looking to see who plans to be there so that I have the appropriate thing planned.

We are about to start the next installment of Legacy of Fire. Everyone should be at 5th level.

The current party make-up is:

Bruce (bard) , Dave (monk/rogue) , David (cleric) , Matt F (wizard) and Corey (sorcerer).
I believe that Bob plans to play a paladin. (The starting HP and Point Buy rules for this game can be found at I will have to defer to the players to determine how much GP to spend on equipment. Dave and Corey have made the most recent characters.)

If we think that we will be short players for part or the whole day, I can have a PFS adventure ready to run too.

Monday, April 15, 2013

Our next session

Our next scheduled session is May 5th. I would like to know who plans to be there so I can determine what we will play. Since last month was Jon's last game, that leaves use with Bruce (bard) , Dave (monk/rogue) , David (cleric) , Matt F (wizard) and Corey (sorcerer).

If we have enough players for Legacy of Fire, I will continue that. If not, we may have to look at something like PFS, another game or cancelling the session.

Belier's Bite

We're going to need a ruling on Belier's Bite.  Kasim has it but has yet to use it.  It reads:

Your unarmed strikes cause your opponent to bleed.
Prerequisites: Improved Unarmed Strike.
Benefit: When you damage an opponent with an unarmed strike, you deal an extra 1d4 bleed damage.
Special: This ability does not stack with other special abilities, attacks, or items that allow you to deal bleed damage.

 What exactly does this mean?  An extra d4 per hit?  Opponent gains the bleeding condition for d4 points every turn? d4x(hits) per turn?

Next Sunday Game 4/7/13

We are scheduled for our next Sunday game on 4/7/13. As of now, I am expecting to run Legacy of Fire. I expect that we will complete the first book of the Adventure Path.

Our start time will be 2:00ish at Bruce's house.

Scheduled Game on 3/3/13

I am not really sure if I can make 3/17 work as an alternate date. At this point I think that I would rather keep the 3/3 date which I know will work.

I am open to doing something different. Rather than play Legacy of Fire, we could play a couple of PFS scenarios. Dave, Bruce, David, Matt and I all have characters and play on a semi-regular basis. We could even invite a couple more folks like Steve or Corey who do not normally join on Sunday.

If we go this route, I can volunteer to run one scenario but I would like to play one too. We just need to decide which levels/scenarios that we want to play.

If that is not to the group's liking, we can always skip March.

Either way, we would resume the Legacy of Fire game on 4/7/13 when Jon can attend.

The Origin of Kasim al-Raqib

I spent my youth in whorehouses and ale houses throughout Lung Wa.  I never knew my brother, cared nothing for my father, and saw my mother only rarely.  

It was a callow and misspent youth, remarkable only for the length of time it took me to mature.  One would think Angelic blood would make a person grow up quicker or live more nobly, but such a one never knew my mother.

Do not mistake me: I adore my mother.  But it is the same way the mountain adores the rain: enjoy it while it lasts, for it will be gone soon.  It is certain she is a scion of some lawless entity; Cayden Caylean or somesuch.  She will not say.

One night I stole into a roadside inn, thinking to rob a government official there.  I silently  crept into the man's room and rifled through his possessions.  To my dismay there were no ill-gotten taxes or jewelry, but prayer beads and several religious texts.
As I made to leave I heard a rustling of cloth.  The priest rose from his mat and asked why I had not taken anything.  I boasted that I only stole from those that steal and that I would never rob a servant of the light.
A discussion followed, about morality and how misguided my justification for thievery was.  I did not realize it then, but I became a disciple of Master Chung that day.

I went with Master Chung to the Golden Dragon monastery   It was there I learned what a fool I had been, and how much I had to learn about... well, about everything.

Years flew by while I studied.  I was oddly content with the monastic life until my mother found me.
I had a brother, she said.  Not of her blood, but of my fathers, got upon a succubus.  My father had passed on as well, leaving my brother orphaned.  

My peace was broken.  My brother, demon-blooded, orphaned in the cesspool that is Katapesh?  He was sure to grow into a victim or worse yet, a scion of corruption.

I took my leave of the temple and set sail for Katapesh.  My brother's exploits were easily heard, and although they spoke of no strong character it was clear that there was not malice or evil in his heart.  The stories reminded me much of my own youth.

I was further heartened to hear that he had fallen in with a holy knight of Sarenrae, gone on a quest to free one of the northern towns from the grip of gnoll marauders.

Then I arrived at Kelmarane, and my brother was dead less than a day.  It seems to me this was fated.  Surely, I am meant to take his place.  Was it my mother's doing?  Some machination of my father or his demonic whore?  I know not.  But it seems that my brother Aman had cast his lot with these adventurers, and so shall I.
