Check this out

I found this in a Paizo ad. It is a free browser-based RPG. It has a pay component too that unlocks additional content.

I have played around with it and it has been fun so far. I have considered paying for the "advanced" content.

Check it out at http://www.sryth.com/.

I also placed a link on my web site on the home page http://sites.google.com/site/zombiehomepage/

Revamp Treasure Picking

We are to the point where the basics of treasure picking are covered. Everyone has at least 1 magic item and a magic weapon. Often we create a pile of non-proficiency-friendly +1 weapons in a pile and sell them. Another sign of this status is when players start deferring their picks to save up for when a "good" item comes along in the next haul.

This is a pain in the ass. Where do you go in the pick order when you do this? The top, right? What if Bruce skips twice in a row but Steve has skipped before and after? It's time for a change.

I propose this: the pick list gets used for resolving disputes only. If an item gets called out and only one character wants it, he gets it and the pick order does not change. If only Randy wants the Codpiece of Queerness; the Phylactery of Faggery; the Limpwristed Bracers; and Nectenabo's Anal Lube, he gets them and keeps his spot on the pick list. But when the Deathwatch Goggles come up and Roth, Germanicus, and Genn all want them, then the guy highest on the list gets the Goggles and he goes to the bottom of the list. The pick order otherwise stays the same.

You can bow out of any dispute. If Germanicus and Genn see that another item they want is part of the haul, they can give up their claim on the Goggles to keep their spot on the pick list.

Consumables (items with charges, scrolls, potions) that are not picked will be assigned. I'm not going to bother looking up the price for the damn things. This will not cost a pick if it's a party item (ie Wand of Cure).


Here is the current list of items that have not been officially divvied up. Ned and Galeron have been picked to carry a lot of stuff because they pulled Mule Duty.

We reserve the right to call Bullshit. The Sean Rule is in effect: no picking a ton of items just to sell them. No using your higher pick to get the +5 Holy Avenger and sell it before the Paladin has a chance to pick it. Blomm Rule is in effect: dont be a dick.

Adventure concludes next week

We will finish the current adventure next week.

I am not sure if you will level before or after the final fight. (I will let you know soon.) Please plan to have a leveled copy of your chracter for next session. (That is 9th level for those that are not keeping track.)

After this week, I was planning to take a break to allow Randy to finish his Lost World game starting the following week. If he is ready and available, I think that is the plan. If not or when he is done with his game, I have another Pathfinder adventure ready to run.
