"What is this place? Puzzles in Azlant, more magic than you see in a year in Absalom. Wheels literally within wheels. Bound demons and wax golems? The expense must have been enormous. But why? To what end?"

Joana:
I thought the ending seemed a bit weak, too. I kind of appreciated that Jekka didn't loose everything, though. Overall, I enjoyed it.


So I bought Inner Sea Intrigue to see what the enchanting courtesan looked like, and I was amused to discover that the book has a section on schemers in the Inner Sea region that includes our old friend from Freehold, Tabansi. Apparently, he's rumored to be a leader of anti-colonial movements in the area? Would've never guessed that from when we were in Freehold.


Spoilers!


I suppose you'd be annoyed if I told you that Inner Sea Intrigue's Tabansi was much higher level than us, too? ;)

I assume every NPC is higher level than us. It saves time.

Mind you if one accepts that as true, and observes that it is the lower level PC's who actually do things then it becomes logical to assume that NOT doing stuff earns more XP.

I say we troop back to Freehold, put our collective feet up and let the XP roll in. ;7)

Sequel, I think.

This is an odd assumption. The higher level you get in my campaigns the more rarely you will encounter anyone close to your level.

HD, on the other hand...

I would have to check my notes to be sure but General Morvius was a renowned warrior and is one of the highest level fighters in the country; at a total of 5 levels. Add your stat arrays to the mix and I think a fight between him and Qhude would basically come down to the dice at this point.

If everyone can forgive my ridiculously long hiatus, I think post-wedding, post-promotion I can afford to pick this up again. I am truly sad we will be without Kieran but I don't have the heart to ask Castor to give me a third chance.

Color me still skeptical ... but you know I'm still around.

The loss of Kieran is going to be a problem storywise for Tebati, as well as mechanicswise for all of us in a trap- and puzzle-filled pyramid without a rogue.


I'm still around as well, and would be happy to pick it up again.


You know I am ready to continue.

Qhude currently lapses in and out of a fugue state depending on whether I'm in my 2 weeks onshore or 2 weeks in purgatory offshore on the platform with near zero internets.

But whilst here I'd be interested to continue if we can get it back up - though it would be difficult to deal with the void of Kieran from a plot and play perspective.

I can accept odd.

In my POV it is a way not to underestimate the opposition. If you go in to a conflict assuming you are the underdog and that the other side has capabilities you do not know about then you are a bit less likely to be caught entirely flatfooted when they release the Kraken or start dumping Rage addled super-apes into your cooking tent. Like you do.
If it turns out you can just roll over the baddies via raw numbers and badassery then that is all to the good. But raw power is better, in my odd view, as a backstop when the clever plan falls apart rather than as an opening gambit.

But then I do tend to overthink things.

I will miss Kieran. But I can see how it could work.
My first preference is for him to stay of course but I can see his looming horrible death as motivation for our lady of driftwood to start exploring the darker, more aggressive, options open to a angry cleric of a deity unencumbered by conventional morality.

But that is just my toss from the peanut gallery. Ignore as needed.


I know that Akirra's taking a short break, but when he returns, he had mentioned possibly rebuilding Akirra as a trapper ranger with trapfinding, too.


700 new avatars!


Hmmmmmm... I think I like this one for Akirra.

Loads of good ones in this batch for sure. :)

And I am cool with reconfiguring Akirra if needed.


*sigh* And still not a one that works better for Ansha than this one.
