    Alright, it's a DOUBLE HP weekend for Jade Regent. That means for one weekend only, I'm boosting everyone's HP and dropping some various magic items into the game for the spellcasters. We're going Final Fantasy for this bitch. Casters get a Hi-Ether Potion. This is a special Koya brew that restores all previously cast spells to the available spell list of the character. Noncasters get a Hi-Potion. This is another special Koya brew that restores all hit points as if the character had 'heal' cast on them. Unfortunately, the alchemical instability of these potions means they are only available for one session. Use them wisely. There will be another item issued especially for this session and you can choose any one NPC to accompany the party from the following list:

    Ameiko (rogue/bard/???)
    Shalelu (ranger/fighter)
    Sandru (rogue/fighter)
    Spivey (cleric)

      And unless the day goes south I should have a nice painted Sandru model for you tomorrow. Hopefully.

      Ok. Wasn't sure what her status was at this point so no worries.

    Are there any complaints about a lack of role playing and focus on the story that need to be voiced for Jade Regent?

      This party needs to work on combat and tactics. They need to have an in-game discussion about it. If there is a horde of goblins running at the party, then Goon Wan can say "Hang back a second, let me thin the herd first" BEFORE he launches a fireball or whatever. Some of the melee types need to perhaps work on their coordination. Take some teamwork feats. Maybe I'll give you some for free if you start actually working as a team more. In the spirit of this, I will put this on the table as a house rule: IF any caster calls out a predetermined warning to his party members, (whether that is their name, "DOWN!", or whatever else comes to mind), then any saving throw relating to a friendly fire spell will have the chance to reduce the effect by half again. So instead of half damage on a fireball with a successful save, you'll take only a quarter of the damage.

      There is also a clarification on the ranged combat into melee without precise shot that we discovered in Jerrod's game last week. It relates to the issue of the size of the target and whether you are still at a disadvantage or not. We'll discuss that at the table so we are all clear on it.

    Guys, my gran died this morning, and arrangements haven't been made yet but there's a goodly chance I'll be late for or absent from this session. I'll try to remember to post more information when I have more information available to post.

      Thanks, lads.

      So yeah, Gran's funeral is Saturday. I won't be making it to the game. Not that the funeral will last until eleven at night or anything, but I kinda feel like I'd be a jerk to go play make-believe instead of spending time with my dad on the day we bury his mom, heh.

    Hey guys, I just noticed one of our Meetup organizers using Mageling's, another shop here in town, as a venue. Is anyone dissatisfied enough with Valhalla's that we should consider changing to Mageling's? It's pretty much next door to where I work, so I'll try to remember to look in on it tomorrow.

      Still, I'm sticking with "this idea was a bust."

    Just letting you guys know that I wont be at this session. I'll be out of town.

      It is entirely possible that Meryl might do that. It's hard to say.

      Meryl wants that information. She'll do it.

    I now have all dates posted between now and the end of this year for your convenience. Alan, when do you leave for basic next year? Early summer?

    July 29, 2013

    • Alan S.

      UPDATED SHIPPING DATE: 22 MAY.
      WHY IS THIS IN CAPS? MY PHONE's CRUISE CONTROL IS STUCK AT COOL AND THE BRAKES ARE BROKEN.
      YOU READ THIS LIKE I WAS YELLING.

      July 30, 2013

    • Matt B.

      Yeah, I'm definitely sure we can't complete all 6 books before May. Probably not before July and/or with more scheduled sessions. So we'll continue as currently scheduled. And when Alan leaves us in May, we'll give him an appropriate send-off. A greater slaying arrow to the knee.

    In the unfortunate case that Shiro dies, how about a Lawful Good Aasimar Cleric? The Aasimar is Kobold in origin of course.
    Reason for being a LG Kobold? Was a part of a warren that served a metallic dragon.
    Reason for being out of the warren? It was wiped out by Oni.
    Reason for even meeting the party? The raid happen recently and nearby, the caravan is the first place that he has found people.
    He'll worship Apsu, the LG dragon god, and will probably have Good and Artifice domains.

      Well... it would certainly be interesting.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
