Carrion Hill Treasure Assignments

Groin: Amulet of Natural Armor +1
Alice: Pearl of Power
Delysia: Cloak of Resistance +1
Throckmorton: Ring of Counterspells
Simone: DECLINES Bracers of Armor. Thune and Mahal have no use for them either. Will sell for party gold unless Alice wants to switch her pick for them.

This leaves the pick order at:

Potion List:
Mahal: Potion of Fly

All the scrolls are arcane and I will assign the Dust to Simone as a party item. The wizards will divvy the scrolls and what they dont take will be sold. Simone is interested in copying See Invisibility and Scrying into his spellbook.

Our gold total before selling unpicked items is 3935

What Loot Shall Fall

What did the Carrion Tsar pay us for saving the world?

The undivvied treasure list that I have is as follows:

10 potions of Cure Moderate
8 potions cure lt
Ring of Counterspells (magic missile)
3 scrolls Gentle Repose
100 gold worth of supplies from Keeper Meyer
135 gold
writing instruments worth 100 gold

Scroll: See invis
Scroll: invisibility purge
Dust of Appearence
Scroll: Contact Other Plane
Scroll: Planar Binding
Scroll: Restoration
Scroll: Scrying - is this arcane or divine? It's on everybody's spell list
300 platinum
Cthulhu relics worth 500 gold
Pearl of Power, 1st lvl (any caster)
Potion: fly
Wand of Lesser Restoration
Amulet of Natural Armor +1
Cloak of Resistance +1
Bracers of Armor +1

Keeper Meyer's spellbook, already parsed by Simone and Alice
Keeper Krove's spellbook, which Keith needs to hand out

Do we have a pick order for this group? I left off some of the treasure we've gained since we started--a lot has already been divvied. If we don't have one, me and Bruce can just roll for everybody and assign picks. If people dont like that method they should read the damn blog.

Assuming I havent missed anything, the pick lists go like this:

Pearl of Power
Amulet of Natural Armor +1
Cloak of Resistance +1
Bracers of Armor +1
Ring of Counterspells (magic missile)

Wand of Lesser Restoration (8): assigned to Delysia (party item)
Spellbooks: assigned to the wizards. Simone will carry one and Alice the other, until theyre done scribing from them, then they can switch off.

Potion: fly
3 scrolls: Gentle Repose
Scroll: Contact Other Plane
Scroll: Planar Binding
Scroll: Scrying
Scroll: See Invisibility
Dust of Appearance

Scroll of Restoration: assigned to Delysia (party item)
10 potions Cure Mod, 8 Potions Cure Lt, distributed evenly amongst all characters
Scroll: Invisibility Purge: assigned to Kara (party item)

New Hero Lab Version and Content Available

I downloaded an update to the base Hero Lab software and some free Pathfinder updates.

I also purchased the pack of content that included the Races, Regions and Armory. I only own the physical and electronic copies of some of the region and race books (Sargava, Gnomes and Orcs). I do not know what all of the content might be. There will likely be Traits, Feats, Spells, Equipment, etc.

If we plan on using that content, as a group we should plan on purchasing the material so that we have a reference available.

Ultimate Magic Playtest has Begun

Round one of the Ultimate Magic playtest has begun as of today. You can download a copy of the Magus base class at I will also post the link on my website.

The current round will run for the next few weeks. Additional materials will be made available as we go.

I did a quick scan of the character class. It seems pretty cool. One of the major benefits is the ability to cast spells and make melee attacks during the same round. It is an alternate take on two weapon fighting. There are penalties for doing this but I could see it as being fairly powerful.

Spells are limited and only go to 6th level. HP are between fighter and wizard. Skills, armor and weapons are somewhere in the middle.

It appears to be an interesting blend of fighter and wizard. It is not as strong as either. I would be interested to see how it stacks up against a dual class or the prestige class Eldritch Knight.

What's on Tap

Next Tuesday should bring the conclusion of the Carrion Hill adventure.

After that, my immediate plans are to run some flavors of HEX. I will want to run the playtest material. After that I should be ready to run All for One.

I expect the HEX playtest to take at least a week, maybe two. You will also need to complete your playtester comment forms.

The All for One adventure will likely take 3 to 4 weeks to play. There will likely be a portion of a night for character creation.

Tsar Still Slumbers

I am still looking for character information for those with characters for the Slumbering Tsar game.

I know that Randy and Kelly do have characters. Steve claims that he does not have one. Corey and Kara do not seem to have them yet.

For those who need to make characters: Your characters should be 7th level. You can spend 15,000 GP to purchase equipment.

For those who have characters: I am looking for your Character name, Class(es), Levels per class and Race.

I would like to ensure that everyone has characters so that we can play this game when the opportunity come up. I am not sure when that will be but it could happen soon.

New Paizo Playtest Very Soon

The new open playtest for Piazo's Ultimate Magic ( book will begin on Monday.

  • New options for existing classes
  • New class
  • New Feats
  • New Spells
  • Lots of goodness
More details next week.

Details starting to come together


This is what I have gathered so far. Please validate and supply any additions or corrections. (I suspect some name changes may be on the way.)

Carrion Hill

Simone DeChamplaigne – Rogue (3)/Wizard (2) – Elf – Dave
Delysia Calhoun – Cleric (5) – Human – Kara
Turbo Turbo – Barbarian (5) – Dwarf – Corey
Alice – Fighter (2)/Wizard (3) – Half-elf – Bruce
Mahal - Cleric (5) - Dwarf – Kelly
Groin Balinsohn – Cleric (2)/Paladin (3) - Dwarf – Randy
Throckmorton P Kongor - Fighter (3)/ Bard (2) – Human - Steve

Slumbering Tsar

Vincenzio - Rogue (2)/Oracle (5) – Human - Dave
Sir Slappy – Paladin (7) – Half-orc – Bruce
Rogue - Gnome – Kelly
Cleric - Randy

It was brought to my attention that Corey and Kara do not have characters yet for the Slumbering Tsar game. (I started it rather than continue the Carrion Hill game for a couple of weeks when they were not around.) You will need to make 7th level characters for the game. Does anyone remember what I did for starting equipment?

Need player input

So I can keep track and we all have a better collective memory, please send to me or post the following:

Player name
Character name
Class and level

for each of the Carrion Hill (5th level) and the Slumbering Tsar (7th level) games.

I will create pages for each game on my web site. I can also create one for the Pathfinder Society if there is an interest. (I believe that I have the information for all of the characters).

Carrion Hill Question

Why dont Kara and Corey have the same resources as the rest of us? Short attention spans? Keith gave me and Randy over 10k to buy stuff. Kara and Corey fall waaaay short of that.

Ask for it and the Gods will provide ...

The first adventure for All for One came out today. That means I will be able to run this new game very soon. From the looks of it, it will take 3 to 4 sessions to complete. Everyone needs to make a character and a lackey for another player. You will play both your character and the lackey for the other player. This can lead to some interesting situations. Think Necubus and Nestor.

I also got some feedback on the HEX play testing today. I am expecting to have additional materials for next week. If I have the adventure, we will play it. You will need to make new characters. If not we will continue with the Pathfinder Carrion Hill adventure and do a bit of play testing of the new HEX rules. (I will provide these characters.)

I have a few HEX adventures for Becky and the crew. Once I have modified them we will have another 4 to 6 weeks for them.

All told, that should take us through the end of the year.

Pathfinder tomorrow and HEX playtest the following week

I plan to run Pathfinder tomorrow. I will be continuing the Carrion Hill adventure.

Next week I plan to run some HEX. I received some playtest materials this weekend and I expect some more before next week. I will be able to share what I have tomorrow. We can discuss more at the game.
