Hows about dropping proficiency in light and heavy crossbows in exchange for slings?

I figure a channeler with minimal peasent-esque martial skill is more likely to be able to use a simple, rock-chukka rather than a mechanical weapon.

Well, assuming Maeko gets his character up today, we should be able to start by tomorrow. I am looking forward to it.

Female? Does not compute. Does not compute. *BZZZT.* Anyway, like I was saying, he should get his char up sometime today and once that happens, game on!

That weapon sounds like something my character would use, so I'll put it on the character sheet.

However, I may decide when I work out the rest of the equipment to roleplay its aquisition out in game, especially since it'll be rare that Heulwen is mounted until level 2.

Looking over the character sheets, it seems everyone except me is primarily a ranged combatant. On the one hand, most of the Orcs will be dead by the time they enter my range. On the other hand, I will probably be unsupported in melee combat most of the time. I can feel the flanking pain already. Perhaps my AC is still not high enough.

A nice setup nonetheless, and as long as the party is on the offensive, we should be fairly unstoppable. On the other hand, if we get ambushed, we could be in trouble. It should be interesting to see how it plays out.

How strange. It seems the vB code is not working for me right now. I have checked my options and it is enabled. Did I input the code wrong?

The code looks okay. Not sure what it could be.

As far as combat, I don't even think Aleina is going to carry a weapon .

Typical. Cadrius, I vote that to encourage weapon use among the Channeler class, they be given free profiency with Sword-Chucks.

Who was that masked admin?

Yes, give her sword-chucks and let's see how long it takes her to chop her own head off .

Dirigible, if you want to swap crossbow for sling proficiency, that's fine with me.

Not to pick apart your character, but fluency in High Elven costs two ranks because of its complexity, and Erenlanders do not have Traders Tongue as an automatic language.

Equipment questions:

What's the cost and weight on the diffrent varieties of a Wogren Saddle (Pack, Riding, and Military)?

What season are we starting in?

The iron pot listed in the SRD is only listed in one size (a gallon) would it be possible to aquire a smaller one that weighs less, say a half gallon pot that weighs 5 lbs. instead of 10?

Thread (for sewing and for use as fishing line) isn't listed in the SRD, I assume it has no weight worth noting, but how much do you want it to cost?

Should I assume that Bee's Wax (used in leatherworking to lubricate thread and seal seams) has the same cost per quantity as Sealing Wax, or is it cheaper (due to lack of coloring)?

Can I get an Animal Signal Whistle (i.e. one pitched above the hearing range for huminoids) for the same price as the normal Signal Whistle?

Do all these questions help rebuild the "fragile DM Power Trip that [you] depend on so dearly?"

I'm guessing that smiting the PCs of players that ask smartass questions will go a lot further in that regard.

I am not the DM, but I do know that you use the Exotic Saddle costs for the Wogrens equipment.

Thanks Pull!

I'll have my skills fixed and equipment list compiled by tonight after I get home from work.

I was just trying to help.

He did after all tell me that I shouldn't "tell [him] what to do."

Just kidding of course .

I'm curious about the bee's wax myself.

I also have a question on the feat "Charm Lore" from Against the Shadow. It says it lets you create charms, but the core setting rules say all you need to create charms is a few knowledge skills and a craft skill. Does the feat just let you bypass the skill requirements?

As was I, kidding that is. Or was I...

Wogren saddle. I'd rule to be exotic due to the fact that it's mounted on a freaky wolf-dog.

Season: Late summer, early Autumn.

Yes you can get a smaller one, it's foolish to expect all pots to come in the same size

Hmm, I dislike slapping a price on an item simply because it feels so arbitrary. Yet if I had to I'd say you could have a spool for about 1 GP.

Wax, 7 SP.

Signal Whistle, it might be a little more rare, let's call it a GP.

Do all these questions help rebuild the "fragile DM Power Trip that [you] depend on so dearly?"
Yes, yes they do.

Pull, Maeko is an 'her' indeed, sorry if that plays havoc with your circuitry

My character is up, BTW, care to have a look?

Had one and responded.

Edit: Gral, after looking it over I would say that it removes the requisite knowledge ranks for the chosen charms. You didn't learn through trial and error, but instead from your family (or whatever vehicle you choose that granted the prior knowledge). So you get one charm per level but if you want a new one, you'll need to do it like everyone else.

So. Seeing that I will be mostly alone in melee combat, I have hit upon a plan. It involves stepping back next to my allies and this feat:

Redirect Attacks:

Source: EVIL, from AEG.

Prerequisities: Dodge


When someone attacks you, you may bump an ally within 5 feet and give the opponent a +2 to hit that ally, and a -2 to hit you. The opponent then gets to choose which person to attack. The ally figures out what you are doing on an INT check of DC 20, and probably won't be happy that you set them up.


Would this feat be allowed? Even Feyd only has a 20% chance to figure out what I am doing, and you have to look out for number one, after all.

Hmm, let me think about that one...

In other news I've set up another house rule in the Harsh Edicts forum. It's nothing drastic, but I figured everyone should be forewarned.
