    Samduke, no Large fireamrs unless you specifically have the ability to wield oversized weapons. Yes, I know what the Firearms rules say, but I say otherwise.

    Any surprising rules interactions or interpretations, bring them up front.

    Dromites are weird aliens from gods-know-where, but Magnimar is fairly cosmopolitan. (or rather, far too busy with Chelaxian/Varisian/Shoanti ethnic tension to get up to much actual speciest racism).

    Magnimar wiki entry.
    Semper ludens.

    How are we handling hp again? Rolling, average, or something else? I can't find anything in the recruitment thread.

    I'm done with purchases now, and running dangerously close to the light load limit (133lb at 20 Str).

    Edit: I do have one slightly questionable use of rules. The Rogue talent Scavenger allows picking up and stowing an item as a swift action. I'm assuming this means I can drop (free action), pick up and stow a weapon using only that swift action, and so with Quick Draw (free action) I can swap weapons very rapidly.

    Tena should speak in green if she is a part of this adventure.

    I did have some questions to finish off my background writeup regarding the existence of martial traditions, but I suppose it isn't necessary to have that when we're just starting out.

    Hitpoints are average, rounded up per die (5 hp per d8).

    Any unresolved questions, please post them in this thread.

    I'm a little terse in my tone sometimes. Don't read too much into that, it's mostly an english-as-a-second-language thing.

    important play by post house rule: Any action with at least two players behind it and no dissent after 24 hours becomes the group's action when I sit down to write.

    Do any of the Martial Tradition organizations exist in your version of Magnimar?

    The Stained Glass Champions would be the main one. I'm not sure Tena would have ran into any of them quite yet, but that would be the most applicable one to her story and goals.

    Important bits of backstory - Svek would have been quite happy to have spent his entire life in his home city surrounded by other domites. That was changed the day of the disaster when the entire city would have been destroyed if not for the actions of a man named Allen. The Queen offered to grant him any one request that was within her power to grant and felt that the best way of granting his request was to order Svek to accompany Allen and serve him as a healer. Feeling the eyes of the entire city upon him Svek promptly swore an oath "I will serve you until I have saved your life once for every dominte you saved today."
    Are you ok with that Snowbluff?
    Svek will speak in purple.
    Do we know each other when the game starts?
    If we do is everyone ok starting the game with you already in my collective?

    That's fine with me. "Allen" would be happy to help if only to satisfy his only curiosity, and having companionship, a lack of which had lead him to travel in the first place, would be a good payment in his mind.

    Considering that Nicolae only recently arrived in the city and building trust takes time, he would not be willing to join a collective just yet. He has too many secrets to risk letting someone he hardly knows into his mind. Of course, adventuring together is a good way to build trust - so that's not a permanent state of affairs.

    For clarity the time frame is largely symbolic. They will most likely be serving you for the rest of your/their life. You prevented the destruction of the city saved the life of every domite living there a few thousand people. So to fulfill his oath he needs to save your life a few thousand times.

    Nicolae doesn't know the first thing about engineering as such, but he does have some experience with breaking and entering (albeit more often with a crowbar than with lockpicks). Would it be appropriate to use Disable Device, possibly with Int instead of Dex, to examine the damage?

    Yeah, I figured. I was having Allen joke about it being so dangerous.

    With his skills/fortune telling he could have figured it out. I'll leave it up to you.

    Sorry guys, I had a hectic, schedule changing weekend.

    I didn't miss a specific list, right? Yumeko's still on board?
    <BananaPhone> Stop sniveling worm! You think something as petty as "oh boo hoo my house is collapsing!" should stop you from posting in an online fantasy game where people pretend to be werewolves?

    Campaign traits are not allowed. Especially not "Finding your kin". Especially not stacking it with FCB.

    EDIT: Magical Knack does not work with spherecasting. Basically, spherecasting is not spellcasting and abilities can't be brought over; especially things that adjust caster level. You can take the Gift for Magic trait to gain +2 CL with the Time sphere instead.

    (Or you can rejigger your gold to buy a +2 Time staff, or whatever else - as long as the character retains his ability to cast Past Sight at CL 8.)

    Does Allen include anyone else in his second casting of Past Sight? Dawn, as I understand it, is right there on the ladder.
