This is Council of Thieves AP. Westcrown, City of Twilight, once was the center of Aroden's faith, but now it symbolizes despair. By day, the city remains a vibrant center of trade; but, by night only those with a death wish venture out.

lol Kenji took Janiven's flirting quite to heart. Its an understatement to say he is in love.

Andrea will be happy to give you plenty of advice...

Keep your bites to the neck. Easier to put ice on them or a nice scarf.

Andrea is just waiting for Kenji/Janiven's response before she heads off for sleep.

DM Only

Spoiler:

Okay, so my post probably warrants some explanation, so I'll answer ahead of time in case you were wondering (and if you weren't, then this post shall sit without a purpose).

Shinon's sudden honesty about his feelings for Janiven probably seem pretty out-of-character for him, since his main trait is his suspicion of everyone he meets. However, that trait is actually what is out-of-character, not his feelings for Janiven. Shinon used to be a happy-go-lucky, normal person who enjoyed spending time with his friends and didn't really ever think about the shadows or any conspiracy that much.

When he was attacked by Traine, the suspicion and lack of trust formed, like a wall, completely encasing Shinon's happy and gentle nature in order to help him survive. (Which is what the Council of Thieves wants, obviously).

The thing about Janiven is that her appearance, and her sympathy and appreciation of Shinon's ideals, has breached his shell and touched the person within, the kind-hearted individual who is scared to lose anyone he cares about and just wants to hurry and solve this problem so everything can go back to normal.

Shinon got so wrapped up in trying to solve the problems of the city so he could stop worrying about the things he cared about that he actually lost the ability to enjoy the things he cared about. He spent all his time training, hunting and fighting crime that he didn't get to see Traine as much or visit Roy or even just stop and look at the city like he used to. And he certainly hasn't made a new friend or dated in the last seven years (Roy is more like a kid brother to him).

So Janiven has reminded Shinon of what he is fighting for, and now he wants the opportunity to actually have what he is trying to protect, instead of just putting that off until after he is done protecting it.

Does all that make sense? Wow, this was a longer explanation than I had planned.

That would suck. Kenji could just bide his time until we hit 3rd level, then boom, he takes Deflect Arrows and declares it to be on.

Yea. Baldwin did say that 5 characters is a good limit right now, so we can see how things go.


Evil GM

As far as the number of players 5 or 6, we care doing well with 5 players right now from the posting standpoint and concluding segments of actions. A 6th person complicates things, one more person to wait for to complete a round.

We haven't had anyone drop out to suggest they were not interested in continuing, especially given the pace of the game. Just as important the posts have been substantive and not one liners.


Evil GM

Shinon, I read your post lets get to the next day and then I will respond. I'm still wrapping up the other member's evenings.

I am personally satisfied with our group as-is. We have a strong melee offense, ranged support, a healer, and a variety of skills covered.

That said, if Andrea were to put ranks into the Use Magic Device skill and pick up a wand or two, it would probably expand her ability to contribute to a wider variety of situations (not that she's not contributing enough as it is).

Still, if she gets to the point where she can reliably succeed a DC 20 UMD check, Shinon would be willing to pitch in and help her purchase a wand of scorching ray or something similar.

Know (Arcana), Planes and Local would also greatly help. I don't think anyone else in the group has Know (Arcana) or Planes (correct me if I'm wrong) and of course as a cleric in a town full of tieflings a little knowledge about Asmodeus will more than likely come up. And Knowledge (Local) will just help us collect more lore, which is always good.

My 2 cp on the subject.

Hehe. Looks like plenty of opportunities for Andrea to troll Shinon and Kenji about their love lives, give them advice on proper courting procedures. :)

Don't forget the opportunity to give Janiven advice about juggling two love interests without the other finding out!

I find lack of skills or a diverse party tends up the challenge of the game. In my experience with pathfinder, parties that have every base covered are boring. More fun when you have to come up creative ways to deal with situations. I am never troubled by what we lack. Only about what I can do to make up for it.

As far as romance goes.... Kenji wasn't made with romance in mind. I'm having more fun with it than I thought I would. Plus I think Janiven digs me....I think. Definitely a twist for Kenji that I wasn't expecting. So the question is, what will come of it.

Well, I think we've got a pretty broad base of skills. I've got Know (Local), Bluff, Sense Motive, Survival, Acrobatics, Climb, Disable Device, Intimidate, Know (Dungeoneering), Stealth and Perception.

As for the lack of a diverse party, yeah...that's going to be fun. Especially when we're all failing our Perform (Act) checks next book because the highest Charisma score in the group is a 14, lol.

It definitely seems that way. The gift was a nice touch, Janiven appears to be seeing Kenji-shaped stars right now.

Spoiler:
Hee. Andrea's interest here is both personal/spiritual. She is very interested in Fiosa and wants to lay the groundwork for bringing Fiosa into the faith, mostly through encouraging the 'Suck the marrow out of life' lifestyle of Dancing/drinking/feasting/sex. I plan on swiping a little of Shinon's inner monolouge 'Oh, what do I say? She is looking at me rightnowwhatdo I do, oh her eyes are so brown.' Not going full bore right now but a kind of chatting about news about town/gathering info and a little flirting.

I'm feeling pretty sink today. I'm going to nap for bit but I should be on later.

Given your roll of a 13 there is no way the Captain misses his sense motive given the unlikilhood of the lie. Half elf wearing a significant direct maternal lineage signet ring.

True. I suppose there are many bastards, but none that would be allowed to walk around so openly. If only I put ranks in Disguise.


Evil GM

Shinon choose to put on a family signet ring, not Arael. You choose the aggressive manner to obtain infomation. Bull in a china shop. There were other ranking household figures that you discussion with.

I agree with the first part. I did not realize that there were different signet rings for different ranks. (I really wish Traine had mentioned that when he looked them over!)

Ah well. This is a mistake, and I shall learn from it.


Female Human Cleric/Holy Vindicator 7/6 Init +4 HP 93/93 AC 25 (touch 12 FF25) F14,R7,W18Per+19

Hopefully some silver tongued discussion with a lady of the household can help solve any problems. Maybe solving a mystery can help gain a favor for the release for someone who made a rash choice. ;)

Did not realize that was Kenji's profile for a moment. I was very very confused lol.

And Shinon has serious trust issues. The kind that says "Don't freaking touch me, if you touch me, you have the chance to cause physical harm to me."

Janiven has gained a little bit of Shinon's trust, to the point where he is willing to be around her. Andrea is worming her way in there as well, but Shinon is still paranoid about the others (especially since they're all much physically stronger than him).


Male Human(Minkakian) Martial Artist lvl 2 (Int +4) (AC17)

And you have the gall to tell me to be submissive? Oh your askin fer it buddy. Yeah Kenji is untrustworthy. He's been up front about everything and yet Janiven had to seduce us to get us in her little club.

This could be entertaining. Does Shinon have a thing for Janiven? Is he gonna compete with Kenji for her affections? BRING IT! Nothins got more charm than a Asian accent with a charisma of 8 haha!
