OK.

For my part Tauro is ready to go.

He's currently in or near Essembra.

Talking

Kiara doesn't need a cohort to talk to, she's talking enough to herself in her head.
Well, by that criterion, Arel doesn't need a cohort either...

You should get a cohort anyways, Eben. You'd do great; after all, your charisma bonus is probably somewhere around my intelligence score.

Don't insult Kiara's charisma - it's far higher than that


Leadership isn't really worth it for Kiara. Epic Leadership, on the other hand...many many followers to send swarming around

yeah, that charisma score still makes me sick to my stomach, like I've eaten too much candy.

Just out of curiosity...

Holy Zombie Jesus! Good thing you're not a primary spellcaster! I knew it was pretty high, but I had no idea.

I'm afraid to look at your diplomacy modifier...

Looking at Kiara's Disguise check is more fun


Good luck beating that on a Spot check.

Kiara, to Archmage. "Hi. I'm your wife."

Archmage, rolls Spot check with something like a +20 bonus for being intimate with subject. Fails. "Hi, honey. Do you want to see my new spell?"

Kiara: "Hi Arturo, I'm your beloved cohort."
Spot fails v. Disguse.
Arturo: "I didn't think you'd be back for another day."
Kiara: "Oh, please. Have a little faith in me. I was done ahead of time. Now, I had a fun idea while travelling. I need one of your items for an important spell to protect you. Can I borrow your most expensive item? That will afford you the best protection. You'll get it back once the spell is cast, of course."
Sense Motive fails v. Bluff.
Arturo: "Sounds good!"


Arturo may or may not speak with a more piratey accent

Kiara: "Hi Arturo, I'm your beloved cohort."
Arturo: "WTF! My cohort is speaking! DIE!"


Darken - it occurs to me that I should mention that by "secure room" I mean a room with only one exit and nothing valuable inside. Probably the brig.

I really should get a map of my ship. I'll see what I can do about that after midterm week.

"Yar. Sounds good. Arr."

That's as piratey as it gets, mmyep.

Still, I'm more afraid of the diplomacy.

Kiara: "Hi Cyric, let's be bestest friends."
Diplomacy DC 50 succeeds, Cyric is helpful
Cyric: "Okey-dokey. Wanna play checkers?"
Kiara: "Actually, I'd rather you help me retrieve a mythal."
Cyric: "Sure, that requires a rather insignificant amount of effort on my part, what with my infinite cosmic power and all."

In fact, aside from the fantastic irony, why even bother with Cyric? Go straight to Lord Ao. It's a flat DC, after all.

Just wait until you reach epic, and you can turn hostiles into fanatics. Just silly.

Indeed. Diplomacy is the worst-designed skill in the entire game.

Besides, Kiara has no desire to work with Cyric. Kill Cyric and his priests, sure.

Hmm...I wonder if a Diplomacy check can make someone stop believing in their god. Poor Cyric will lose worshippers left and right

Sadly, you cannot use Diplomacy on deities, at least Faerunian deities, as they are the emdodiment of the concepts that are their profolio, thus they cannot change attitude at all, they only just have one single attitude.

That aside, sticking with core Diplomacy is actually safer than using the popular varient by Burlew when modifiers can get arbitarily high at a high level game.

I hate your xp system


Kiara hasn't gotten any xp for like 4 months

I think she'll just start sitting on her cute butt, play with her tail, and wait for xp.

Howdy all, Jedric here.

I'm a bit of a novice re Faerun and I was wondering if anyone knew of any good sites on the net to get decent info. I have a nice high-res map and a list of the various deities but that's about it. Some history and maybe cultural stuff would be very nice, but please don't suggest I buy a whole raft of books.

I will of course appreciate any help given.

[not to the extent that Tauro will show any partiality though]

Thanks.

I have accomplished absolutey nothing and I'm not being rewarded for it.

Instead, poor Kiara is being punished for having days filled with activity

huzzah! Arturo's thread is finally "hot"!

hey Darken, just curious, but what book do YOU get most of your faerun info out of? If we're all looking for faerun books, we might as well use the same one as you.

Most of the info I use are based on FRCS & PGtF, with most of the history stuff coming from Lost Empire of Faerun or other assortment of 2E supplements on Netheril

'i don't want to say your evil, but even the mind flayers are awed by you cruelty'. that kind of bad? eh. RP exp is still exp so i'm not complaining. It's refreshing to have a system based on something other then cold blooded murder.
