Just so everyone knows from a game perspective I am retiring Malcolm for game balance issues, his pistols are just too damn powerful and I didn't want to nerf him because he was kind of a one trick pony.
I am bringing in a Magus for the next adventure so we will have some more magic support as well as some hybrid melee.
I was going to bring in a cleric but I suck at playing divine casters.
I did also take the craft wondrous items feat so between this chapter and the next one after we meet I am willing to assist in the making of any items you have the cash for.
I am going to rest up, pay for a couple of heals to get back to full (need about 30hp after resting) buy some supplies and head out to look for the kobold tracks and see if I can track the captain down.
"I am glad we could save the city my friends, but I realized while doing this that my goals won't align with your goals in the future, my only focus is finding my sister, with the captain being able to escape, the killing of Triel, I realize, and understand, that it is not nearly as important to you all as it is to me and so I will part ways now and continue my search alone." Malcolm will make eye contact with everyone, "I consider you all friends, and if we meet in the future I hope I get to introduce you to my sister. Dalamus, I know that the halfling said you are somehow linked to this as well and that the cult might come looking for you too, keep yourself safe and I will try and reach you with any answers I may find."
With that, Malcolm heads off back towards the cave entrance and will try and track down the captain and continue his search.
Malcolm does leave the dagger and the gem behind, he was only carrying them in case we ran into a creature that needed magic to hit
"Jenya, here are the wands as requested. We have all some sort of injury, none worse than Dalamus being blinded by an evil undead creature. Can your church assist in granting him his sight again?"
I will set out this evening to see if Tom is working the night guard or not and if so set up a time to connect with him the following day to present Triel's demise.
I also want to spend some time researching the curse that the halfling mentioned that they were under to stop them from talking about my sister and see if there is anyway to get a message to the captain to see about hiring him to assist in my search or to see if he has any information I am purchase. I will ask Jenya about it once she gets the weather under control, I know that is much more important.

Are the large prints booted? Any way to tell what it is?
Survival - 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (17) + 7 = 24
"The rains have started and I don't think they are going to let up, I think we have to push on or the city could be lost."
There are still several areas of the map that we haven't explored that I would like to check out before we leave. The blacked out area south of us and the blacked out area to the south east where there might be a cave. I would like to rest and go look at those. There might be more clues as to my sisters whereabouts. Anyone else want to go with?

"I don't mind sneaking out and getting the cable car moved back to our side of the cavern, pending of course that the kobolds did not damage it in and way and trapped us down here."
"I think we should save the wand charges for when we are in dire straights in combat or know that there is another fight around the corner that we can't avoid."
I am ok really either way, if the demon kills us I get to say I told you so to everyone :)
Can I use my engineering to see how the captain was able to blast his way out of the cell? Or a survival check to see if I can track where they went?

"I also vote for resting now. Dalamus, I know what you are going through now must be terrifying and you must want to get to somewhere safe that you can be healed, but I feel that resting now would allow us the best chance to leave safely tomorrow and I promise, I will do whatever I can to restore your sight once we get back to the city." Malcolm will reach out a hand and squeeze Dalamus's shoulder "You are not alone, and on the brighter side, we have proof of Triel's death, you will be free once we return to the city!"
"If you are feeling up to it I can start to teach you undercommon, to help keep your mind off of things"
"Does anyone have a glove or Nowzai do you have a magical way to open this? That is a contact poison that will make anyone who touches it quite sick. If we have any way to avoid touching it with bare skin we can avoid it."
or anyone immune to poison
"Well I can't speak for the whole group on the hiring of evil creatures, and honestly, neither can you, you can have an opinion but the day will never come when you are going to tell me what I am and what I am not allowed to do, I suggest you keep that in mind."
"We already have the one from the lake, Nemoris's bag contraption was successful is recovering it, they last one is in this stone box"
"I am willing to go, but I also don't see the downside to resting here for now and moving out in the morning. The demon could move up onto the sand at any point to attack. We can't guaranty that it won't come attack us as we move to the winch. I vote to rest tonight and move out after we have healed up a bit."
"As for the Black Claws, that demon killed most of his people yesterday, I am not sure he has enough people left to do much good or if he would even be willing to risk them" Malcolm shrugs again "We could ask them I suppose, where did we lock them up again? I have some questions for the captain about my sister anyway"
"Well I am not saying we have to attack the demon, but we do have to leave the cavern by moving right by it's home, we should at least be prepared to defend ourselves and I don't think we are in any condition to defend ourselves right now"
"We still have the demon to consider as well, it might makes sense to rest here and move on to attack the demon. Dalamus, I am sorry I don't have any way to assist with your vision, I can't imagine what you are going through."
Since we are in flextime I figured we could bounce around a bit
"Yes there was a voice in my head that was urging me to go to the west and save them. It said they were children and that more undead would keep coming unless we saved them. I was more concerned with you all then a random voice that was not able to really answer any questions."Malcolm shurgs his shoulders, "I would like to go follow up on it now though, they said there was a coffin and we could save them."
Round 12 - AC 21 / HP 31 / Init 18
If I can take a 5' to move away from the gnolls reach I will, either way I will fire two more shots with the silver rounds
To Hit Touch AC - 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (20) + 11 = 31
To Hit Touch AC - 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (4) + 11 = 15
"There was a voice in my head that was telling me it was a child and that it was trapped in the room west of the giant skeleton, and we could destroy all the undead if we freed them, I ignored it to come here but then it started talking to Magma, he may have listen. I am not sure"
"Ahh, I thought you could judge base on results...I can see why now that might be impossible...sorry" Malcolm looks a little sheepish
Two shots with silver ammo at the Gnoll
To Hit Touch AC - 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (17) + 11 = 28
To Hit Touch AC - 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (11) + 11 = 22

"My other shot hit, my second shot actually veered off from striking him, I was wondering if he had some sort of defense like you did before with your wall of wind."
So are we all on top of the rock pile or at the base on the other side?
I will reload my pistol with silver rounds and move over to Dalamus and put my hand on his shoulder
"Dalamus, it's Malcolm, I am going to put my hand on your shoulder so you know we are here with you, I am also going to fire my pistol, it's going to be loud, have care but I am with you"
I will put my hand on his shoulder
