Having finally seen The Battle of Five Armies, I will say that I agree with all the spoilered stuff. HOWEVER, *I*, the S.O., and my grandmother all loved the movie (and the S.O. and I are both huge Tolkien geeks who bonded over Elven languages while playing World of Warcraft). Good way to end 2014. And more Legolas and Thranduil and Dain and Beorn would have been awesome.
I think that's a valid concern with the Forewarned ability in a PbP format. I'm fine with not allowing a readied action and Elrisiel having to delay if she beats something's initiative in a surprise round (although presumably she could still come off delay after a danger reveals itself but before it acts?) and wants to strike at it.
Ansha wasn't quoting the plaque, although in hindsight I could see how it would read that way. And she said he had an affinity for summoning apes--the spoiler from DMAK to Akirra said "a particular affinity for Apes." Ansha was saying 'great affinity for summoning apes,' as in he had a great talent for summoning apes...and you have to admit, summoning an army of anything isn't something the average spell caster can pull off. ;P
And Ansha does wonder if Akirra's dad isn't connected somehow--whether that's directly or by having trained people who trained people down the centuries. >_>
And geez, Alex, how many laptops have you destroyed in the past three years?
You're the one who put it in the spoiler for 'anyone able to read the plaque and does so' that "Kor 'apparently fell to a horde of Girallons led by several High Girallons; killing over a hundred with a summoned army of gigantic apes." As in, Kor summoned an army of apes. ;P
Lingering behind, Ansha uses the levers to replicate what she heard Akirra do until the map reflects what seems to be pre-Earthfall Sargava. She then reaches out and touches the point of light nearest where modern-day Eleder is (however far away that actually is).
I'm kind of assuming that there is still some way in which we can interact with this device that will produce results, but if not, we can move on to the next room.
I have to admit, looking back on this particular post, that I kind of want to make a monk just so that that can be a legitimate tactic.
For a moment, Thulbine seemed sure to be forced back by a charging skeleton but then Telurion's face lashed out and struck the head from its shoulder, its bones impacting on the Dwarf's armour with the evil force animating them no longer granting unlife to the remains.
Giggling so hard right now.
Which is why she told Akirra they're no longer standing. It's Ansha and Jakob who think they may still be out there. :P
There aren't hundreds out there, but there are still a few...and who's to say that one or two of them isn't still inhabited by sentient beings connected to the order? Like a lich....
"Ansha deduced the location of the six magical auras within the room. Two Moderate strength Evocation auras, one in each of the water tanks. Two Moderate auras of Divination, again, with one in each tank. And finally, Ansha detected a Strong divination aura which seemed to emanate from the water in the large tub itself."
I'm terrible at math...but I'm pretty sure that's only five.

From the Monsters (Intro-A) document. I'm assuming PFRPG kept this, but who knows.
Yeah, I get the feeling there's still a lot that hasn't been revealed, but I'm not entirely sure that all of it remains relevant to the future.
I guess he could have just been trying to get Ansha away from Kieran. After all, the story immediately changed from "I've never seen an elf maiden before" to "I haven't see an elf since I was a kid!" as soon as Ansha set foot in the kitchen.
Hey, AK...I was re-reading the gameplay thread earlier and it occurred to me that I still don't know what the hidden purpose of that cook at the Lion's Maw in Freehold was, when he wanted to be introduced to Ansha.
Assuming that it doesn't spoil future plot points...what exactly was it that he was wanting from Ansha?
It seems awfully early to revisit this particular issue, but I admit to feeling stuck now. Avery and Linora would rather leave the rest of the party behind than wait for the bandits to be dealt with, and I don't know which would take longer--to get the bandits ready to move, or to just hang them. (Ansha's not going to be the one to hang them anyway; she'd rather not get her hands dirty.)
I'm also not sure whether we can make two trips--one to chase after Happs, a second to attack the bandit camp after presumably returning to the trading post--in the same day, and the longer we delay the more likely the bandits at camp are to think something's happened and be prepared.
