That... would not end well either. The vampire should have DR 10 against all of her attacks, which would make them rather useless. At any rate, you're ignoring the domination power that would probably be used on either her or yourself (this is, incidentally, why you don't use wisdom as your dump stat).

You seem to be missing the fact that anything that vampire can do with its powers, I can do with my magic or performences. If it can enthrall Lei, then nothing is stopping me from doing the same thing and cast Charm Person on her to get her back on my side.

Or rather since if I'm not incorrect, a vampire uses a form of hypnosis to entrhall its victims, I can simply use Countersong to prevent its words from having any effect. In fact, if timed correctly and given some freedom with the game mechanics, I could first stop the vampire's words, then take advantage of Lei's impressionable state to make Inspire Courage have several times the effect.

Mather, not all vampires need to use hypnosis. They just have to be really really really REALLY drop dead gorgeous/(fill in the blank with any and or all adjectives of choice) and the next drunkard to pass them is easily enchanted. Also, of course I'd go bloody melee with a vamp! A stupid gun won't do crap if the stupid vampire can easily bend/break it! (Just to point out, most people will automatically presume a vamp is amongst the strongest of its kin, unless stated otherwise)

I'm playing the gunslinger class for a few reasons: a, I normally would enjoy being an aggressive loudmouth sword wielding SOB/PITA but decided to try rangedish weapons; b, I'm terrified of guns in real life, so I'm trying to physiologically convince myself guns aren't as scary in real life and if my character can shoot a gun, then in real life when my dad drags me to the shooting range I won't scream to death; c, why not?

The Vampire's Dominate ability is a Supernatural Ability with no descriptors.
(Like many things in Pathfinder NPC abilities are spontanously immune to player interference)

I was the only one to damage that monstrosity, once with fire damage when it attacked my Fire Elemental, and once with an unavoidable AoE spell that could only be cast once.

I also hit him once.

Also I would point out that all you did during that fight was act like a wildcard. Neither myself, or Retech, considered you a threat, so we ignored you.
Alg was killed purely because Retech thought he was the subject of a coalition.

Though Retech was an ungodly powerful monstrosity, using the Psionic rules, which could probably only have been defeated by Grim (And his undead), me and Ross working in tandem...and even then victory would be hard fought.

In terms of Rapid Reload applying, it would make sense for it to apply, but the rules, as they are written, don't say that they do. So get Retech to make a ruling.

Dominate superceeds Charm Person.
Dominate means a person will act to the exclusion of all other activities.
Charm Person means the person considers you a friend.


Also if you and Lei wish to do a minor session in which I play the Vampire (With Retech observing) then I am fine with that.(though not today as I am goin going out)

Well I knew you wouldn't agree. I know how you hate facing facts.

Um, I wouldn't mind that at all actually. Mather would presumably get mad at me because I don't listen to people well in combat situations. It's not the inability to do what I was told, it's my own personal "die you SOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gimme my money baaaaaaaaackkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!!"

Hell, I could use some combat training so I can get the lowdown on what I can and can't do

Ohhh how I miss these conversations. Not really. The madness on this is way beyond the scope of my wittle tiny mind, so I have no inclination to figure out what the hell you're all talking about and join back in. But have fun, nontheless.

using the Psionic rules


Actually I didn't have enough levels to put psionics in, unfortunately. They are actually very balanced. :)

------------

So unfortunately what's going on is that it turns out the first month of school was actually just a fluke and they are going to saddle me with a lot of work for the rest of the year. I probably won't be able to continue the campaign in a few weeks, but I would like to wrap up this particular story arc (perhaps this week, but I can spare a week or two after that if need be).

If someone is willing to step in as GM (preference given to the Grim, Ross, and Archi as already experienced GMs), then I can share any notes that I have with them, since once this part of the arc is over, then it would be very easy for someone to just pick it up with the same characters but a different storyline. Alternatively, if someone wants to start up a new game/pathfinder campaign on Sundays (if they don't want to deal with the existing characters or if the world is just too f----- up to work with), that's cool too.

That doesn't mean that I won't be around and such, but while GMing, one needs to be pretty consistent in terms of scheduling and pretty attentive, and that's probably not something that I could achieve at this point.

In theory I could run something similar, like maybe a RHoD campaign translated into pathfinder, and up scaled in power (greatly), or try kingmaker again (The city building would, sadly, be abstracted much like it is in Windward, and I'd be using IRC and maybe mumble.

EDIT: Also, if we do either of those things, expect a much higher level of PC mortality, and one of you should probably play as a front line fighter (and another a druid, reincarnates are much cheaper than raise dead).

And so ends the quest. The protagonists, once a small band of petty pirates, now one of the greatest bands of adventurers that ever lived. From their humble origins as pirates, stranded on a kobold-infested island after the defeat of their benefactor, the enigmatic Captain Frega, they broke into their master's tomb and retrieved riches that fueled their expansionistic drives. Establishing a power base on the windward isles, the party terrorized the defenseless kobolds and participated indirectly in the genocide of their friends, the Duergar, in order to establish trade links with the Drow in the export of lucrative surface goods. However, their path to become the greatest adventurers of all time did not take the route of greed, but rather the lust for power.

After gaining control of the Mwangi's tree of life, the party corrupted its magical energies to raise an army of undead, ironically to stop the necromantic organization, the Whispering Way. They teleported the undead army into Absalom, the capital of good on the material plane, theoretically to stop the march of the Whispering Way, but they've been duped. It was only a distraction for the Way to free their powerful leader, the Whispering Tyrant. But all was not lost, for the mighty necromancer, Garmund Twiceborn marched into the citadel to take the test of the Starstone and became a demigod, destroying the Whispering Tyrant and creating a powerful faction of his own, become Garmund Thriceborn, a god in his own right.

Once subject to the weather and the waves, they have transcended such limitations and become the greatest BBEGs of their day. And so ends the first chapter of an epic tale for the ages.
