1d20 + 14 ⇒ (8) + 14 = 22 Know (Arcana) - Q:Special attacks?

"Oh dearie, that's a greenie, alright," Wren chirps, wondering what she knows of green dragons.

Round 1, Init 20

Wren lifts up her feathered 'armor', trying to avoid the grapping vines...

1d20 + 5 ⇒ (13) + 5 = 18 Reflex

...and quickly ducks into the forest as she knows full well what happens to helpless prey when a swooping predator is around.

Double move in the diff terrain.

Wren looks up at the squawking firebug.

"A dragon? A real one or a drake? What size? What color!? Color is important you know!" Wren chitters back as she goes to hide behind a tree and await answers.

Wren pauses from her riding to eat a bit more, pecking at a handful of trail mix and dry bread.

"We are traveling a long distance, we are," Wren states the obvious in case anyone had already forgotten. "Tell me again, Cilas, why we are going back? What is this trip to you?"

Wren, who had presumably been babbling off and on for the better part of 6 hours, gives the man a chance to speak.

Wren hardly yawns from her of research and rest, still keeping herself clean and fluffed with her magics. She attends the breaking of the night's fast with unusual vigor, as if her night of study had increased her appetite significantly.

"More fruit! And nuts if you have them!" Wren orders of the staff, whether they work in the kitchens or not.

Cilas wrote:
"...it will be a hard ride and we do not have a moment to lose."

Wren nods, almost ready to go as soon as breakfast is eaten.

"I shall require a horse, good Ser Cilas. It will be long ride and we shall discuss much as we travel. Have I spoken to you about the time I assaulted a troll-held castle with the most disagreeable of companions! I remember like it was last month but it was likely so long ago...it all started with my good friend...blahblahblah...talkative halfling with a penchant for buggery...blahblahblah...another halfling with twice the penchant, I think, not like she would admit...blahblahblah...and why must dwarves have beards? Disagreeable...blahblahblah..."

Wren needs a mount and will go with.

Wren makes some notes in her notebook, continuing her research and then re-reading Estovion's notes.

Notes:
Halo of Dreams - tome
Stairs of the Moon - place (made up of Dusk Moth?)
Dusk Moth - artifact?
SauSage Effigy - missing artifact
Song of Spheres - dream state? Desna?

People:
Auren Vrood
Palatine Council
Mathus
Madame Ivanja
Kvalca Sain

Wren will try to research any connection between the SeaSage/Sausage Effigy and the Dusk Moth as both seem to be artifacts that the Whispering Way has interest in.

Was there an artifact of interest in Book 1 of this AP? I'm not remembering well as it was long ago.

Also, if you're not actively interested in helping Wren in the library, you might want to follow up on the ample leads/hooks in this thread (link).

Wren explains what she found and shoos the others out of the library so she can research more in peace.

Wren shakes her head at the evidence of Estovion's mistakes and past deeds, fully confessed in his journal.

"It's really sad that my good friend Estovion didn't mention this to me earlier. He could have trusted me after all we've been through, what with the spider and Arval's angry assault of nobles and all," Wren notes, agreeing with Eldon.

Wren pulls out her quill (of the many many feathers she has on her person) and writes down some notes.

Wren then restores the desk to its original formation.

I'm still getting back into things and Wren will continue researching the things above as I have time to post. Still catching up at work and home (and sleep).

Only slightly back, but this game hasn't moved much since I left. Sadly, it appears that no one has taken the initiative to follow up on the other leads that were given? How is that possible that no one has stepped up?

Wren bustles into the open library, only somewhat annoyed that Lena had opened the door before Wren had a chance to.

"I'm shocked that Estovion had the door locked! He must have forgotten that I wanted in...such an oversight that I will forgive as we are such good friends," Wren prattles as she enters and looks around. "I'm so glad we were able to avoid awakening him so I could enjoy the library."

Wren goes to the desk and sees what Estovion was reading and doing.

She reads for a bit, then turns to the rest of the party...as if wondering why they were still there.

"Oh, I'll be quite alright now, thankyouverymuch," Wren coos contentedly. "The rest of you can go see about other things, I'll do the research here."

Wren makes shooing motions with her hand, trying to send the others on their way so she can do the research she needs to do in private.

I shall return on the 18th or so. About to board the plane to Miami, then Cuba.

When you GMPC Wren, think that you're playing an intelligent but socially confused chicken.

"This creature has been maimed beyond repair, we should return him to ash."

"Lobotomized, even," Wren nods sagely, in agreement with Kawrock. "We should let Arval know...he has someone like him. A new friend."

Wren has nothing more here, hoping others will follow up on the other massive leads that have been given before she needs to.

I would have also accepted the answer: "A 2 ton gargantuan trapdoor spider goes wherever the piddlespot it wants." :)

Rat's blood? I'm glad it wasn't one of my birdy friends.

Wren coos and examines the other beast, taking special time with the ettercap. She has no particular experience with creatures like it (aberration) and spends a bit of time trying to figure out why it was bashing itself in to a wall.

1d20 + 4 ⇒ (17) + 4 = 21 Int Check

"Eldon, be a dear and ask around as to where and how they captured this strange thing?" Wren says, pointing at the ettercap. "I simply must know more about it."

I figure the rest of youse can follow up on the other leads.

Later in the library, she will study up on aberrations, trying to expand her knowledge of the creatures.

Wren looks to see what other animals might be held in the pens, seeking anything that might be as dangerous as that spider.

"Can anyone identify what kind of blood was used?" Wren asks, hoping that the blood would point to a clear trail. How are the animals penned? How are the animals locked in?

1d20 + 13 ⇒ (2) + 13 = 15 Know (Nature) - Why would a trapdoor spider follow a trail of blood rather than the vibrations upon the ground?

Wren will catalogue each of the other animals that are penned within. Let me know if any knowledge checks are needed.

Yo Peeps--

Heads up that I'll be AFK from April 8th to 19th. Going to Cuba on a Culture, Economics, and Technology junket with a board that I used to be on. More info here.

Feel free to play or GMPC my <insert yahoo's name here> for all the fun and laughs you can muster. Online access in Cuba is very rare and usually dial-up speeds so I won't be able to post much, but hope to read along when I can.

I hope to be back to posting on the 20th or so, given that I have a long trip home and will need some recovery time.

Signed,

Wren continues to fluff her feathers and try to undo the waves of nausea that affect her. It involves a lot of angry squawking until she finally regains control. When she does, she goes to the man who was initially threatened by the spider.

"Did you see where it came from? Where was it when you first spied it?" Wren wants to make sure there aren't more coming from a nest someplace.

DC24? 24!? Wow. 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (4) + 3 = 7 Fort vs. Nausea. Vicious. At least Arval should have AoO for the ranged attack, right?

Wren chokes on several spider leg splinters, sputtering and floofing around like a chicken without a head. Wren runs around WhiskeyJack, ending up back where she started on the map.

Wren sits wherever there is space. She is happy to chatter and chitter to anyone, mostly because she's not aware (or really caring) if they are listening or not. She will tell her stories (you all know the ones) about her life growing up.

She will hunt and peck at her food (leaning towards fruits, vegetables, and nuts).

She listens intently for Eldon's story and prepares one of her own should Eldon's not entertaining enough.

Wren had been about to grease the evil dwarf's longspear when he sees that it can no longer be wielded effectively. Instead he fires arrows into the fray, hoping for a lucky shot.

Wren casts Prestidigitation a few times, fluffing and cleaning her feathers before heading down for dinner...and even hits the dirty bird, Kawrock, for good measure.

"I've never seen you bathe, Kawrock. Would you like us to set up a large shallow stone dish in the garden? Is that how your kind bathes? I use magic, of course..." Wren makes friendly and interested conversation with Kawrock on their way down for dinner.

When she arrives, she chitchats about what she learned of the Sausage Seasage Effigy to others.

Wren if you want to make more knowledge checks feel free, I just need to know what you want to research. As for the rest of you, God's gentle hint is that you're in a place full of fun NPCs who may know something. Seek them out or wander around and see what you find!

Wren is doing generic research and reading. She doesn't necessarily pursue only the Whispering Way and werewolves, but pursues whatever seems of interest.

Wren, for many good and bad reasons, isn't the most social bird in the flock. She tries hard and *thinks* she makes friends, but actually getting others to like her is quite difficult (unless one is in an adventuring party, of course).

So when not actively eating with others or shuffling around to discuss what she's learned or read or to gossip, Wren will be spending a lot of time in quiet research.

I know we want to be social and sleuth a bit, but that's not Wren's gig. She will help as needed (especially research), but if you *want* Wren to help with the nobility and such, she will, just know that she's Wren and I can't stop her. *Things* (link) will happen. You have fair warning. :)

Wren is happy (and more comfortable) doing research than talking to nobles. She is quite excited about her recent discoveries into the leadership of the clans and shares it with everyone when she sees them. Do read the spoiler above because Wren would have yakked about it to you.

"Eldon, were you able to get the book? Or should I go ask my good friend Estovion for it? He's very fond of me, you see, and he'll lend it to me, I'm sure," Wren gives her best smile to Eldon, her yellow teeth showing.

As Kawrock rattles off the litany of things he's discovered in his research, she realizes to her surprise that the bird can both read and organize his thoughts intelligently. She is impressed.

"Kawrock, in your studies, did you come across any hintings to the dispositions of the various clans. We can assume the Jezeldans are demon-aligned, but what about the others? Would any of them not be liable to attack us while we finish our research?"

Research

LIttle to no useful details are found, however as she flips through a description of the Stairs of the Moon, a bookmark falls out.

Bookmark wrote:
See 'Halo of Dreams' on page 322. Filed under Religion upstairs.
Upstairs from the reference library is a closed door. Estovion's personal chambers and library.

"Oh Eldon, look at this," Wren hands Eldon the noted bookmark. "See, dearie, there is writing upon it. Apparently and by implication, there is more to this library than what we see here! We should go see if my good friend, Estovion, will allow us use of the private library."

Wren smiles at Eldon, a leery owly smile showing her yellow teeth.

"It's nice to have someone around who knows how to keep up a conversation..."

Wren and Eldon (and whomever else wants to help) go to find Estovion.

Wren researches some things that had been nagging on her mind. Guessing on what knowledge to use, so switch out modifiers as appropriate: Arc14/Eng9/Geo9/Hist12/Loc12/Nat13/Pln10/Rel 13.

1d20 + 12 ⇒ (11) + 12 = 23 Know (History) - Recent Whispering Way activity

1d20 + 12 ⇒ (20) + 12 = 32 Know (Local) - Werewolf clans (Vollenag)
1d20 + 12 ⇒ (14) + 12 = 26 Know (Local) - Werewolf clans (Mordinracht)

Wren reads and researches quite happily. She is much less talkative when she has a book in hand, eagerly using the words in the pages to silence the voice that gives rise to her ramblings.

Wren nods to the man, finally understanding. She winks at him and fluffs her feathers, totally getting it. Totally.

Wren the Feathermage will, in fact, spend some time in the library. She will split her time between reading books on the natural world (like birds), and other time on the Whispering Way and various religious and occult matters. What she doesn't finish tonight, she'll mark areas to research tomorrow.

Giving a few days of rolls, in case they are needed:

Day 1
1d20 + 14 ⇒ (18) + 14 = 32 Know (Arcana)
1d20 + 12 ⇒ (6) + 12 = 18 Know (History)
1d20 + 13 ⇒ (13) + 13 = 26 Know (Religion)

Day 2
1d20 + 14 ⇒ (16) + 14 = 30 Know (Arcana)
1d20 + 12 ⇒ (4) + 12 = 16 Know (History)
1d20 + 13 ⇒ (5) + 13 = 18 Know (Religion)

Day 3
1d20 + 14 ⇒ (2) + 14 = 16 Know (Arcana)
1d20 + 12 ⇒ (11) + 12 = 23 Know (History)
1d20 + 13 ⇒ (15) + 13 = 28 Know (Religion)

* * *Next Day* * *

Wren seems refreshed, her feathers less rumpled. She even bathed, which is nice. She greets her good friend Duristan with a smile.

"I would love a tour of the Lodge, Duristan. No doubt you know much about it. This lodge reminds me of...blahblahblah..." Wren offers her arm to Duristan as he offers the tour.

Wren also cocks her head in a curious birdlike manner, equally curious about what the man thinks they are there to research. If it is the unlocking the intrinsic arcane power of feathers, she will be quite pleased, but probably not.

She waits for him to explain more.

Kawrock already made the knowledge check on this earlier and pointed it out to Durstan regarding his golden retriever pelt. Now who isn't listening to who?

Bah! It's totally unreasonable for you to expect me to read and remember things days later!! And another thing, how does Kawrock drink, let alone drink coffee? Does he ask for a straw? Suck it through his beak? Inquiring birds want to know!

Wren accepts coffee and snacks (if offered) in the great hall.

"Ooh, this is a Grand Hall, probably the grandest hall I've ever been in. And I've been in some quiet grand halls, let me tell you..." Then Wren does begin to explain the different halls she's been in. "This one hall was notoriously mirrored, including on the ceiling...blahblahblah...used for watching oneself doing the funky munky...blahblahblah...or sliding greased into one's open...blahblahblah...and another hall had numerous naked gnomes, I think they were gnomes, quite ugly, the lot of them...blahblahblah...fights and fisticuffs...blahblahblah...and that's where I learned about the Dutch Oven."

While Wren walks around examining the Hall, she will cast Detect Magic, mostly out of curiosity.

Wren continues to flit about in the air like a hummingbird seeking nectar as she keeps a lookout for more of the Pollenbag tribe of werewolves.

Do the wolves stay in their wolfy form? Revert?! I have no idea...TV gives me so many confusing images.

"Well, let's get back to the Lodge. I think we've earned some rest and dinner, don't you think?" Wren coos.

Hopefully, the party will return to rest and party for the night. And we can give 'Jack a bath.

Round 4, Init Firstish

Wren flies after the fleeing Cur, still wanting to know the name of the tribe.

"Are all of your tribe as cowardly as you? Should we look for the tribe that runs away the fastest? Will that be yours or does it have a name?"

Wren fires her wand at the werewolf.

"Oh Kawrock! What did I just tell Arval about avoiding their swords?! Don't you listen to anything I chirp?" Wren chides Kawrock. "Probably not your fault, much like a chicken, you don't have ears, do you?"

Wren fires her wand at the most wounded w'wolf if it still stands.

Wren is slow to react to the scream, the alcohol going right to her birdy head. Thankfully, her frail body doesn't let her sick the alcohol back up.

Taking to her feet, she follows behind Duristan as people go to the sound of the screams and trouble.

*The More You Know*: Alcohol:
Just like drugs, alcohol can be abused and have significant negative effects. In general, a character can consume a number of alcoholic beverages equal to 1 plus double his Constitution modifier before being sickened for 1 hour equal to the number of drinks above this maximum. Particularly exotic or strong forms of alcohol might be treated as normal drugs. Those who regularly abuse alcohol might eventually develop a moderate addiction.

+1 for "your misery amuses me."

Wren squawks around, trying to get herself comfortable in the camp. She doesn't help in the cooking, but does watch and give advice for things that people are already doing.

She *does* eagerly partake of the brandy. She doesn't drink that often and, for some reason, this seems like a good time for it. The alcohol unlocks her already loose lips even further.

"Did I ever tell you all about the time I went into this strange troll guarded castle with a bunch of hooligans?! I don't suppose I did...blahblahblah...troll dogs guarded...blahblahblah...a halfling with a big mouth...blahblahblah...wouldn't stop pooping words...blahblahblah...and a black bird thing who thought he was a big red chicken...blahblahblah...very bad bridges, should have made of fudge...blahblahblah...this dwarf with a terrible accent, couldn't understand a word he was saying unless you imagined him swimming in jello...blahblahblah...sexually attracted to me, of course...blahblahblah...another halfling, cute thing but was besotted with the human...blahblahblah..."
