Quite good. The steak in the fajitas is fantastic.


Male Human Traveler / 8

Man, those strawberry sopaipillas were as good as advertised. Thanks for the recommendation, Joana! Now I might burst.


Glad to hear you enjoyed it, Wander! Los Vaqueros is the only place I order steak fajitas; everywhere else I order chicken. I don't know what they do to their beef, but it's excellent.

When you get back home, let us know where all else you went on your road trip!

You remember correctly, Wander. :)

Oh, yeah, sorry; you were hit but made the Fort save both times. Looks like it's just Pezock that's taken a Con penalty.

See my post in the game thread which has the relevant links.

Currently, Makoa and Douena have each taken 1 point of Con damage, and Pezock has taken 3. Of course, 1 point of damage means Makoa and Douena aren't suffering any penalties yet (like the dreaded reduction in hp), but that 1 point will stack with any further damage they may take later. :)


Have the damage noted on her character sheet. Jask's channeling 2d6, so I assume he can cast 2nd level spells and learn lesser restoration if he doesn't have it learned already?

Jask can indeed cast 2nd-level spells (he cast an aid on Lorenz earlier), and he typically prepares 1 lesser restoration each day.

Yeah, it had some seriously tasty spice in it. I'm glad I got both chicken and steak so I could compare, though I was so full afterwards that I didn't eat again until the next day.

Trip Details, for those interested:

Well, I followed my original plan of seeing as much of greater Texas as I could accomplish in four days. After lunch in the Stockyards I went up to Oklahoma. I didn't quite have enough time to make it all the way up to Oklahoma City but I did drive for a couple of hours westward in southern Oklahoma. Then I headed up to Amarillo and spent the night there (saw The Avengers there too!).

After that I drove down south through Lubbock, and Midland over to Fort Stockton. I enjoyed that drive quite a bit, actually; Friday's trip to Amarillo was almost entirely through green, fairly lush landscape. Surprisingly so. South of Amarillo all the way to Fort Stockton was more like the Texas popular culture typically refers to; real arid and empty. Since it was Cinco De Mayo I got Mexican again along the way; best tacos and quesadillas I've had since I left California almost fifteen years ago. And more sopapillas. :)

Fort Stockton, though, was boring; I regretted stopping there on a Saturday night. There was absolutely nothing to do, so I ended up getting some exercise to make up for all the driving and that was about it.

Sunday I drove on I-10 straight over to San Antonio and a little east of it to the Texas Pride BBQ, and feasted there. That was pretty good and they had some spectacular Peach Cobbler. I spent the rest of the afternoon wandering around in San Antonio and had quite a good time doing some bar hopping in the Riverwalk that evening. They were pretty darned festive down there once the sun went down and it wasn't so hot.

Monday I just drove to Dallas, ate lunch at a burger place I'd heard about on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives -- Twisted Root Burger Company...they had the best strawberry milkshake I've had in years -- and then wandered around in the JFK memorial stuff before driving back to the airport.

All around it was a good trip and I really enjoyed driving in Texas. Outside of the I-35 corridor, I've never known such pleasant drivers. All that space really must account for something. The food was every bit as good as I've heard and I wish I'd had more time (and a bigger stomach) to eat a lot more. As it was, I could really only handle one good meal a day. I'm definitely going to have to go back sometime. Four days was definitely not enough. There's a lot I'd have liked to see more of and I never did get down to the coast.

I also need to take a trip just to Oklahoma City sometime...after looking into it, there's a lot I want to check out. The memorial looks incredible and I love the idea of the Crystal Bridge.

Thanks again for the feedback! That was really helpful.


How far north into Oklahoma did you get? Did you drive up as far as the Arbuckle Mountains? Let me know if you ever make it back to OKC. I grew up there, although it's changed a great deal since I've been gone.

Shadow Lodge

Okay, so soon my posting schedule is going to take a large dip. :( Probably no more than once or twice a week. Just thought I'd warn you before it happened.

Thanks for letting us know! When it happens, I'll bot Makoa during combats to help keep things moving.

Well, I'm gone till at least Sunday.

I forgot to respond to this.

I didn't make it very far north at all, sadly. I went up to Ardmore on I-35 and then cut west on Rte 70. I intended to go up to Lawton, but as I was getting into Waurika there was a major thunderstorm alert up ahead and I ended up deciding to cut southwest to Wichita Falls and continue to Amarillo from there. As it happens, I just managed to skirt the storm by doing that. It was pretty interesting, actually, because it allowed me to watch the storm pass without getting hit with more than a few raindrops. Really something to see. I tried to get a picture of it but didn't quite succeed.

One of these days I'll probably schedule a weekend to fly into OKC and just hang out there for a couple of days and take in all the sights. When that happens, I'll be sure to let you know!

Grand Lodge

I am so sorry for not being very active. My time is being used up by family health issues. I don't want to drop out, but my posting will be sparse for the foreseable future.


I think Urza is the only PC who has Appraise trained. Unless we want to take Pezock's word for it, we should probably let Dax make a roll.


Why ever would you not trust Pezock's appraisal? ;)

Grand Lodge

I would trust his appraisal of an item if I thought he was appraising it. What Pezock gave was his opinion of the stones, though, not an appraisal of them.

Sorry; which party member suddenly decided he was in the mood for flappybite meat when we had successfully avoided their notice back on the Shiv? Why does no one ever eye Urza nervously? For all Lorenz knows, he could have an urge for antelope steak. ;P

Because Urza's a lot quieter and a little less interested in killing things because they're there than Pezock. And Douena talks to Pezock. :)

Grand Lodge

Actually, Urza was eyeballing those antelope. I figure I could get Pezock and Makoa to come with me pretty easily, Doena might come along too because she's never done anything like it before. Oh yean, if the herd wasn't so large we'd be in initiative right now.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian(Totem Warrior/Invulnerable Rager) : 2 Druid(Wolf Shaman) : 4

I was wondering if anyone would think to ask the the guy raised by wolves to go after a herd of prey animals.


Male Human Traveler / 8

Joana's right: Lorenz should be eyeing everyone nervously!


Male Half-Orc Barbarian(Totem Warrior/Invulnerable Rager) : 2 Druid(Wolf Shaman) : 4

Are we using the fast, slow, or medium XP track? We certainly seem to be leveling up pretty quickly!


We're using the medium track, so you still have a little under 1500 xp to go before level 5.

I'm hitting the road again, so posting will be scarce for the rest of today and likely all of tomorrow. I should be able to catch up Friday night or Saturday morning.

But if Lorenz's brains were eaten, how would we ever know the difference?

Male Human Traveler / 8

Ha!


Hey folks,

Sorry about the slowness over the last few days. I had some last-minute things come up. Things will probably remain slow until Monday, but then my schedule clears right up for a few weeks (well, weekends will still be busy, but weekdays will be good), and I'll actually have free time! Yay!


And I'm back!

I still have to get a map made up for the upcoming encounter, so I might not get a new post up until tomorrow, but after that, it will be smooth sailing. Yay!


Can I request that we spoiler readied actions from here on out? Douena would definitely have cast Bit of Luck in that situation, but it's easier to make the decision IC if I don't already know what the d20 result is going to be. Would have been frustrating to spend the daily use if I already knew he'd rolled a crit, for example.


Male Human Traveler / 8

Good thinking.

Grand Lodge

Taking down the one was very satisfying, but I'm second guessing my decision to go with Scorching Ray over Color Spray on #3. Let's see how this plays out.

That sounds like a fine plan to me. From now on, please place all rolls for readied actions (or any actions not taking place right away) in spoilers.

Fortunately, Large creatures tend to have poor touch AC.


Hey, Wander, did you see Lorenz on the last page of the Shattered Star Player's Guide? Looks like Gelik got him that field commission to the Pathfinder Society after all.


Male Human Traveler / 8

Ha, I had just opened it when I saw your post. I guess Lorenz is going to survive Serpent's Skull after all! But he must do something to piss Sasha off if he's going to change his name like that.

Yeah, I've been starting to wonder about the lack of responses this week. I guess everyone is just busy.

Our cat's been in and out of the vet this week. He has a cut on the tip of his tail, which isn't serious, but after the vet stitched it closed, he keeps trying to chew it open again. He managed to get under the bed last night and pulled off the bandage and reopened the wound. You know the old thing about tying a torch to the tail of a fox and letting it loose in your enemy's wheat field? Well, it was like that, only instead of a fox, it was a cat, and instead of fire, it was blood, and instead of a wheat field, it was my carpet, before we chased him down and shut him in the laundry room until it reclotted and I could go in and wipe up the floor. So I'm having to keep an eye on him all the time and distract him every time he starts to look at his tail funny. He knows he's not supposed to mess with it, so he keeps trying to sneak off someplace where I can't see him. I have all the bedroom doors closed so he can't get under a bed, and I pulled the curtains up off the floor so he can't get behind there, and it's driving him crazy not having anywhere to hide in the house.


Male Human Traveler / 8

Yeah, that'd certainly be distracting. Sorry to hear about your cat, your carpet, and your flagging (or at least, so I'd imagine) patience!


Oh, the joys of wounded pet tails. I know them only too well. :)

A previous dog of mine, Hermes, used to whip his tail about with a lot of force when he was excited or nervous (and he had some terrible anxiety issues, which meant he was nervous a lot). As a result, he tended to injure his tail a lot and then the vigorous tail wagging would spray the blood everywhere. When I moved out of the apartment I was in when I had him, there were still spots on the ceiling that I'd never been able to reach to get rid of. :)

One of my current dogs, Pan, once got his tail caught in the door on his way back from a walk my had taken him and Frey on. He cried out briefly, but his tail came free quickly and he was happy again, so my wife thought little of it and didn't check the tail. (Dog's have very few nerves in their tails so they don't have a lot of feeling there. Pain from tail injuries goes away very quickly even though the injury might not.) My wife then fed the two of them, which resulted in lots of happy tail wagging. Unfortunately, Pan's tail had been cut rather badly and it was only after the two dogs were happily eating that she noticed the small splotches of blood that were literally everywhere.

Worst of all, a lot of the blood had landed on the sides and tops of books on our bookshelves. We spent a lot of time wiping of individual books, but still, even as much as a year later, I would occasionally take a book off the shelf to find a spot of blood that had managed to seep down the inside cover! :)


Male Human Traveler / 8

Wow. That's really kind of messed up. Poor animals!

My dog got stung by something this morning and was dancing around rubbing his face in the wet grass. Poor pup.


I should point out that Pan's tail was (and is) fine. It healed up quickly and easily. It was just messy. :)


Yeah, the vet said the tail is the second-worst place for a cat to be injured, mess-wise; the first is the ear. Although the wounds are superficial, both of them bleed like crazy and are impossible to keep bandaged. We've gone almost three days without him opening it up again now. If we make it through the weekend, I'm going to consider it healed.

Hey folks,

Things might be a little slow over the next few days. My wife's health issues have reared their ugly head again.

Thanks for your understanding.


Male Human Traveler / 8

Sorry to hear about that, Navior. No problem at all.
