Reign of Winter Character Creation

Point buy: Epic Fantasy, 25 points

Available nonstandard races: Catfolk, Tengu

You MUST take ONE campaign trait from the Reign of Winter path: http://karzoug.info/srd/Pathfinder/Traits/ReignofWinter.htm

Alignments must be some flavor of GOOD.

Maximum HP at first level.  Average HP at new levels.

The game starts in a podunk village of Taldor.  It would make sense to be some flavor of Taldan, but it's not necessary.

Tonight 5-24

What's on the menu after we finish SoB?

Does anyone want to be a Ubiquity GM at Gen Con?

Is anyone interested in running any Ubiquity games at Gen Con? Most of the Ubiquity events have already sold out and Gen Con has asked if we can run any more games.

If  anyone is interested, I expect that we can come up with a scenario or two for you to run.

Next Week: More Shadows of Brimstone

We are planning another go of Shadows of Brimstone next week. We played last night and failed again but I think we did considerably better. Alan started with a new character. David decided to play a new one too. Kelly's character got carried away by demons in the town so he had to make a new guy. Bruce and I played or gimped guys.

We failed mostly due to my inability to hold back the Darkness and the fact that we did not uncover any clue icons on our Exploration tokens. We were about to win a fight and get some loot before running away buy I rolled snake eyes and got us ambushed by more swamp slugs.

When we pick up we have a trip to town. A d3 buildings will be destroyed because we failed. We only had 1 travel event which was the bridge out which means that we only have 2 days to stay before we need to move on. It is a similar result to last time so I expect that Dave and Randy can do their town visit with us next time.

Next Week

What do we want to do next week?

Shadows of Brimstone Recap

It was a hard night for the posse but I think we did pretty well as a group getting the hang of the rules. I might have been able to explain things better but I wanted to keep things moving. From my perspective it went much better than the last time we tried to play. I hope that folks had fun. I would be interested in your feedback.

The next time we play, we should do our visit to town. We have the close d3 random buildings because of the darkness escape. We only have 2 days available in town due to a travel event. This may be you opportunity to fix injury/madness/mutation and to purchase equipment.

Personally I am considering starting a new character next time. It will cost me 310 XP but I will forego an injury, a madness, a mutation and 2 permanent sanity loss. On top of it I only have $50 and really cannot buy any goods or service. Not sure yet.

If anyone wants to start over or play a different character the next time, that is perfectly acceptable.We can even double up on character classes if we choose.

I have invested some cash into this game and plan to continue to do so as less than half of the planned content has been released. While I enjoy playing solo, I would also like to play it with a group. We can continue to have this on the shelf for when we have 6 players or less or we can try to modify the game to allow for more players. Out of the box, the game is set up to allow for 6 players. I think that we may be able to play with 7. In order to do this, we would need to increase the difficulty a bit but the trick is not to crank it up too much. My suggestions to do this would be to add an epic ability to all monsters and/or add some additional monsters like plus d3 small/medium, 1 large. If that pushes over the number of available models then we add another epic ability instead. That said, this might take a bit to get right.
