TOPIC: LFO Sat 10:12p Moongate Combat

LFO Sat 10:12p Moongate Combat 2 years 3 months ago #13

I step away for a little bit and bam, thread blows up. :lol:

Handsome Husband Hawk? Can't compete with that. He wins. :silly:

Biz Markie and guesses wrong on the Lore check? Yeesh. ;) I'm thinking I might be able to bring a bit more Bardic bang for your buck. So I'm going to call Bard. Sorry Bob. I'll be running 5th level Bard, with Bardsong bonus of +2/+4 with the utility of Lore check, sliding, casting, or scroll slinging. I usually start with the Lore check (I'm pretty damn good at it, too, thanks to being an actor IRL), and Bardsong an improvised song that includes the Lore check info in some way. Next round is normally a switch over to Widseth's for sliding, but could go to Briano's for casting or the new Amorgen's for scrolls. Depends on what the situation seems like.

I may be an experienced TD player, but honestly have no trouble running at normal difficulty. No worries over missing out on anything at Hardcore/Nightmare since I have four other runs scheduled. You honestly aren't putting me out at all. :) If anything I'm happy to Bard for groups that have concerns over surviving. I see my role as Bard as complementary party support. I help y'all out, y'all keep me alive.

"Charming Drow warriors? You should hear about the time I managed to seduce a medusa in her own lair. Resulted in my being detained from my travels just a bit longer than anticipated. Wasn't turned to stone but she definitely made me feel a bit stiff at times..."

I'm reading Name of the Wind currently. Considering how much iron is in the token set this year, what little I've read so far has given me some cause for concern as to what we'll be facing in the dungeons. It's been hinted at that the dungeons will have a bit more of the world than what has been revealed in the novels, and at least one monster that is brand new to both TD and the Kingkiller Chronicles canon, approved by Rothfuss himself.

Considering this will be the last run for me after a long Gen Con combo of TD volunteering and runs, low sleep and caffeine will be the fumes I'll be running on by then.

So looks like this is what we're looking at so far. Conversation is still happening in my group, but of course, nothing is really decided until we know the final two players. If we encounter a 5th level rogue, I may see if they were willing to a rogue trap challenge to fight for the class slot. I originally started as a ranger, but once I opened my first rogue trap, I was told I can never leave the class. ;)

1. Hawk Fingle - Bard
2. Meghan Callahan - Rogue
3. Adam Meier ("Bob") - Fighter? Wizard? Monk?
4. Bryan Haakensen ("Hawk") - Cleric
5. Jessie Meier - Ranger
6. Sheree Meier - Druid
7. Gerri Meier - maybe wizard?
8. Bryan Maus ("Mouse") - maybe Paladin?
9. ?
10. ?

And yes, that's a whole lot of Meiers. Don't worry - there aren't any kids! Just immature adult siblings, spouses, and hanger-ons!

It was a blast having you in the group! Maybe we'll get lucky to be on the same run for a future event (unless you have me on your "Do not join" list ;) )

Later we were talking about how awesome it was that you incorporated tips into your songs ("You gotta use FIRE!!!").

Me: "Do you think he already knew that info, or somehow found it out?"

Adam/Bob: "That's what you get for passing the bardic knowledge check - you get info about how to better defeat the creature."

Me: "... and we don't usually get this because you fail bardic knowledge?"

Adam/Bob: "Um, yep! Pretty much!" :P

Me: "Dude, you do fucking suck as a bard!" ;)

Glad you had a good time. :)

Please do keep me in mind should you require a bard on future runs. It was a fun group!
