That's just it--we don't say. ;-) Who knows...that contact might just tip us off to something good if he thinks we already know about something!


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

That's easy...we're looking for something one of the naga hid there, a piece of treasure or something, and that's where it's rumored to be hidden.


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Nice!!


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

divide and conquer. If we get into trouble with one or two, we should be able to sucker them in over their heads before they feel the need to call for backup.


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

I'm impressed. That is downright devious! I think we can work with arrogance as a weekness, eh fellas?


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Vaughn looks a little skeptical. How many unexplored tunnels are we talkin' here? We could spend years searching something like that and not stumble on to what we're looking for...


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

yes--even the ones not associated with everyone in this crew. :-(

In other news, I will be out of touch until Saturday as I'm skiing with the fam.

Buta huffs noisily and snuffles at Kenta's elbow for snippets from the table, as Kenta raises his voice to respond "Kenta not come... no reason to give kuso about egg. Egg not pay Kenta, buy sake for Buta. Not see why all people need run around for fat halfling too lazy go out find own imaimashī egg."

Vaughn takes in Kenta's comment, and stares pensively at him for a few minutes. Then he leans forward toward him.

Kenta, here's the thing. Bobo is no adventurer. He's got a good heart, and one thing is sure, he's NOT lazy--he's been working his tail off maintaining this place. If he wasn't here, we wouldn't have such a comfy, safe place to rest up between our little jaunts. that, to me, is worth a heluva lot; Bobo is providing me with a *home*. And, he and Kyren are blood. Kyren has proved himself many times over, and he'll help Bobo, if for no other reason than their blood ties.
.
Kyren is my friend, and he's helping Bobo, who is also my friend, so that's why I'm in.
.
Now, you and I haven't known each other too long, but fighting the good fight shoulder to shoulder with another counts for something where I'm from. So, if not for Bobo, and if we're not getting paid...

Vaughn extends his hand to Kenta, anticipating a writs grab/shake

...come with your brother in arms because he's asking for your help.


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Works for me... Vaughn drains his.

Vaughn smirks. Keep your eyes open, Ferranel. There can be some rather...exciting dishes floating around this place. "nothing more than you might expect" can mean a lot of different things depending on the company!

Dear lord I'm glad to have that out of me. It's been building up in my head for a month.

Yeah. that was kinda cool!

Vaughn listens with reasonable intensity, at least pretending he's following the conversation.

Vaughn is watching everything farily closely, but it seems the stranger is no immediate threat. Seeing Al picking up seasonings, he whispers don't you think elves are sweet enough already?? *wink*


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Vaughn looks the newcomer up and down, and nods in response to the bow. You might, sir, you might. And might he know who's asking?


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

I'm only in HOD. I like it, despite the slow pace, and would be sad to see it go. I humbly request not shutting it down (yet!!), but can offer no unbiased opinion on shutting others down.


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

+1 on condolences. :-(


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Sense Motive: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (17) + 2 = 19

Vaughn smirks at Kyren's façade, but otherwise keeps quiet. He does give Bobo a wink...

Abercrombie's review is fairly close to mine

In the end what I loved about Jackson’s adaptations of the Lord of the Rings was that, in spite of what he cut and what he added, in spite of the small liberties and the amped-up action, he somehow achieved the alchemical balancing act of making the films feel like The Lord of the Rings. What I don’t like about Jackson’s adaptations of the Hobbit is that they just don’t feel like The Hobbit.

I'm probably going to get gang-raped for this but...is that a bad thing?? honestly, I tried reading the Hobbit to my boy...and it had its slow parts...


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Thanks, Stretch! I get the concept, but the finer points might take a while


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

DragonBlood, I agree with you for the most part, on liberties taken. Example: I loved Harry Potter 3. Even with the liberties taken, I felt that they did not take away from the essence of the story.

on the other hand, I HATED Harry Potter 4. IMHO they wrecked Dumbledore (turned him into a panicky old man who was barely in control of anything) AND Harry (by skipping out on his throwing off Voldemort's Imperius curse in their duel, they missed an opportnity to show Harry had heart/skill/will rather than just luck), to the detrement of the story.


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Vaughn looks only slighlty confused at the piece moves, but he appears to grasp the basics concepts.

Opening check: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (20) + 1 = 21 <--+5

So, go for the center of the board to maximize your options, right?

Middle game: 1d20 + 1 + 5 ⇒ (12) + 1 + 5 = 18 <-+4

Hmm, seems we've beaten each other up enough to go for the throat...

End game: 1d20 + 1 + 4 ⇒ (10) + 1 + 4 = 15

Huh. Well, I guess I don't get the endgame all that well.

Funny, this pretty well describes my current chess ability!! Decent opening/middle game, crappy endgame

All these chariots, makes no sense, embrace the spirit of Brother Eagle, adopt his form and simply go snatch the Count

Ha! Kobayashi Maru the count!!

You know, Al, I agree with you all the way, and in a real battle that's what I'd try to do. But games like this are a good way to practice different thinking, strategy, stuff like that. Be prepared for anything, right?

Finally saw the latest Hobbit, quite like the Orcs :)

dying to see it. A friend of mine who digs Jackson's movies didn't like it. Haven't gotten details as to why though...


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

if I'm not mistaken, mt. Washington has both the most dramatic temperature change (biggest change over shortest time), AND highest recorded windspeed, ever on earth.

Edit: people dying in Tuckerman's Ravine is not at all uncommon

"Ahh Crazzleboks! I forget how sensitive Bobo can get sometime. But not to worry. He'll be fine in a short time, especially once we acquire some eggs for his recipe. In the meantime, let's just have some fun. Is anybody up for a game of tzarek?"

OK, why don't you teach me??

Bastard.

It's freeze-your-effing-face-off cold in New England today (seriously--like -15 F wind chill)


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Vaughn shrugs. Might be fun.

about 3:00 in--is this what Bobo looks like?


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Vaughn narrows his eyes thoughtfully at the exchange, slowly nodding. You know, Stretch here has a point. He's been working his hairly little toes off keeping this place running so WE have a nice spot to return to. I can see "we owe him something" as a pretty legit claim.

Optimization, schmoptimization. Most iconic things are iconic for a reason.

So, Bobo, exactly what kind of creature are we talking about here??


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

nice shifty!! I should share some of my painted minis (I'm no pro, but I'm a reasonable intermediate)

HOD folks and anyone else interested in an equipment discussion:
I'm trying to decide on how I'd like to equip Vaughn. I know that right now it's not super relavent, given the relatively scant treasure we've been finding of late (HINT HINT!! ;-0 ), but I can't decide whether mithral full plate is worth the expense.

I'm sticking with 2-weapon fighter, no dual class. Currently using breastplate. For 10500 gp it's 9 AC +3 max dex (current dex 17, was going to raise to 18 at lvl 8).

Is that much cash worth 3 AC? (or 2 if you compare mithral FP to mithral BP which has higher max dex) Being the primary front-liner and no shield...wait a minute, there's always an animated shield...hey ,I like that!!

opinions?


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Huh. Well, good luck to you, stretch. Didn't mean to offend. He hands Bobo back his scroll, with respect.

He then smirks at Al. I don't carry much salt on me, so don't get any ideas.


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Vaughn grins, grabs the parchment, and gives Bobo a light shove. Don't get saucy, stretch!

Vaughn then unrolls the parchment, and reads...


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Vaughn stands, faces Berry, and clasps wrists. Thanks. You were definitely a memorable companion--and effective! I'm sure we'll still see ya 'round...

Yeah!! Vaughn grabs a couple treats and winks at Bobo.

Around a mouthful of cookie, Vaughn answers the Littlest Chef. Nunno that we have any plans yet. You guys have any ideas?


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Yeah, you're right. Let's get out of this dump.

Vaughn offers one last glance back at the ruined pyramid, going so far as to spit on the closest piece of rubble, then turns his back on it to bring the children to safety.


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Vaughn looks at Bunta's impressive tonnage. That, my friend, is going to take a *lot* of sake...


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

OK, let's get back to the Revive and get these kids cleaned up and fed.


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

I think you mean they don't BREAK them like they used to, eh??


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Acrobatics: 1d20 ⇒ 11

Vaughn can't quite land from the Featherfall in time to get his feet properly under him to avoid the shrapnel...


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

(Once the kids are all safe...)

Vaughn shrugs, and brings up the rear with a flying leap.


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

Vaughn smiles and punches a fist in the air. YEAH! Well done Berry & Al!

seeing that Kyren and Tal are much better suited to getting the children to safety, Vaughn locks eyes with Kenta and nods toward the entrance of the room. Vaughn hustles over to the entrance they came in on--leaving room for Kenta and Bunta--pulls out his bow, draws, and gets ready to fire on anything nasty that tries to come in. He spares quick glances toward his other friends to check their progress, and is ready to run back once all the kids are safe and it's the adventurers' turn.


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3

I care, man. I *care*


M Human Fighter / 7 AC: 23 Touch: 16 HP 78/78 Init: +3
