That really is all neither here nor there. This adventure is really almost done, if we would just keep posting IC instead of going back to a comment from over a week ago.
We are waiting on you and Bogut.
The adventure was designed for running several encounters back to back under a time constraint. The bad part of low level is you can run through your spells so fast.
What you need to do for the future, is spend your money on back-up things. A wand of magic missiles and some special alchemical items will really help make your character more versatile going forward. You should plan on being able to make it through 4-5 encounters before resting and have some tactics in mind to assist or be useful even when using a spell is not worth your time. A longspear is great for that. You have reach and you don't even have to try to hit the bad guys, just use the Aid Another action to help your companions since you only have to make an attack roll vs. AC 10. That is a better than 50% chance if you have a MWK weapon and your +1BAB. I am not sure, but you might not even have to worry about giving up cover either. So you could be always giving +2 AC or +2 Attack bonuses to your front line combatants instead of using expendable things.
For both Lucas, Shaed & Keelynasta. We are working on the follow-on plan after this wraps up. Anguis will takeover DMing from Herzog and we are looking at the party going forward.
We have a new member with a cleric waiting to get in.
Keelynasta has his wizard or Bogut
The Raptoran Scout
Lucas with his sorcerer
Shaed not sure about continuing due to RL
Grimble will not be continuing, but I will replace him with something else.
This looking at a party with a cleric, scout, two arcane casters, and a possibly swashbuckler. I had not planned on making another tank, potentially trying a druid before the cleric came in. I will think on this some more, unless someone is also wanting to make a change. If Shaed doesn't continue, I know of another player that might want to play.
Things are pretty lenient on rebuilding characters, so you can make some major changes. You can completely rework everything if you want, essentially starting over but using the XP/GP from your old character. So Keelynasta, you can take Bogut's XP & GP and give them to your wizard, thus retiring Bogut permanently.
If Keelynasta can post post more frequently, we will restart the Tavern Thread to begin roleplaying some with the new characters that will be going forward.
