|Champion of Wrath
Saturday we played more Pathfinder, continuing on through the Runeforge.( And just barely getting through one wing out of seven.Collapse )
Afterwards, we looked at our options and apparently there's no way to cure insanity without a high-level cleric or an even higher level wizard -- bards, paladins, and magi don't count. We did find a scroll of Limited Wish that should work, but it sucks to have to use it up on something like this.prev Current Mood: okay

|No Rest for the Wicked
Apparently I forgot to log the last session again, so this is two sessions' worth, although honestly nothing much happened between the two of them since they were both spent entirely in combat rounds. ( Even the parts that as far as the party knew weren't in combat.Collapse )
The takeaway from this session was:
(a) being woken up in the middle of the night sucks, although in a dungeon you sort of have to expect it
(b) trying to coordinate a party of eight invisible people as they sneak past a patrol four times faster than them is both tedious and frustrating
(c) Enemies getting infinite duration round/level spells is also kind of frustrating -- I'm pretty sure their haste and displacement spells lasted at least five minutes.prev

|Ritual Dragon (pt 2)
Saturday we played more Pathfinder, continuing our quest to enter the Runeforge.( But first...Collapse )
We stopped about an hour into the fight, having not managed to even burn through a single enemy's mirror images, although they hadn't really managed to hurt us either. Ugh. x.xprev

|Guards and Wards
Last week we played some more Pathfinder and I forgot to write a summary again. This time I remembered before the next session at least?( TLDR we got shop-blockedCollapse )
Anyway, I don't remember what happened at the very end of the session but I suspect there was going to be a fight or something.prev

|Sunday, December 30th, 2018|
Yesterday we played some Pathfinder, continuing to sneak around underneath the giants' fortress.( Surprisingly effectively...Collapse )
After the game Tom suddenly remembered that the Lamia were supposed to be draining wisdom 'with all their attacks' which would have been *kind of a big deal* since Kaito's wisdom is really low and Elyssie's monk powers rely on hers. Looking it up, though, they only drain wisdom with one of their five attacks so it wouldn't have made much of a difference -- the only key will save (against the petrify) was a sort that Kaito could make using charisma.prev

|Oops and also Spelunking
So it turns out I forgot to do a writeup for the game two weeks ago. Well, we had another one yesterday, so I'll try to sum up both.( basically, we ran away and then turned around and snuck into the enemy's castleCollapse )
It's been a long time since the party was able to go shopping for anything better than healing potions, and it's really starting to show -- their armor class is so low compared to the enemies that it might as well not even exist, and the only one who can 'tank' is Kaito, using temp hp and damage resistance.
At least Phoof's buffs keep their offense relevant!prev

Saturday we (finally) played some more Pathfinder, continuing the fight to defend Sandpoint.( We defended part of it, at least?Collapse )
We stopped there, with some mop up left to do. The dragon was an obvious distraction but a *really good one* since he was distracting us from the giants taking prisoners by *burning down entire buildings* with people inside them. Hard to say that focusing on him was the wrong choice.prev

Saturday we had a short session of Pathfinder. We started late because of Community Day and later because of traffic, then had to quit early. We almost got something done at least?( Almost.Collapse )prev

|Video Game Woes
Don't shop at Fry's.
"I only have 9.5 inches of space inside my case, so I need a video card that will fit."
They pretended to look up the sizes of cards on the internet and then swore that THIS card was only 8.5 inches long. But... it was actually 10.5 inches long like all the others and its only distinguishing feature was 'cost slightly more'.
So I came back the next day to return it, but apparently their return policy is 'lol no'.
So fuck those assholes. I mean, it's a given that I'm never, ever shopping there again? But if they're willing to go to those lengths to cheat their customers no one should shop there ever. How else are they ripping people off?
Anyway, since I'm stuck with the card I ordered some extension cables off Amazon and I'll see if I can mount it outside the case. I suspect that this doesn't work and the cables are only relevant for bitcoin miners, but it might?
I was getting a new video card because I think my current one is fried. So far I'm only crashing in one game (Warframe) but it's been steadly increasing how often it crashes in that game to the point where it's now literally unplayable because it crashes at the login screen. Also, it's an old card and other games are kind of klunky in it so an upgrade would be nice anyway...
The crashes are the 'screen goes blank, computer freezes and may or may not spontaneously reboot' which in the past was always a video driver problem, but I've updated the *drivers* a lot and the card got accidentally 'overclocked' a few months back when I started playing Battletech (it had a bug that would lock the card at 100% usage for an indefinite period of time during boot, and other people were complaining it fried their cards outright).
Watch it be something entirely unrelated, though.
Anyway, the other woe is that while waiting for various crap I started playing Pokémon Moon again, and it quickly reminded me why I stopped earlier. Wild pokemon call for help. EVERY. SINGLE. TURN. And they get it about 90% of the time. So if you can't sweep them, good luck ever winning the battle. And even if you can, good luck capturing anything because you can't throw a pokeball unless there's only one of them on the field. Which makes the procedure:
(a) Find wild pokemon you want to catch
(b) Carefully lower their health without killing them
(c) OHKO the friend that they summoned while doing this.
(d) OHKO the replacement friend they summoned immediately after you killed the first one.
(e) OHKO the replacement replacement friend they summoned immediately after you killed the second one.
(f-k) keep doing that
(j) Throw a pokeball and hope it captures them on the first try. If not, go back to (c).
So annoying. x.x Current Mood: annoyed
