Okay, I put a fairly basic map together according to LM's descriptions. I tried to follow character placement based on what people were saying but I might have gotten things wrong. Let me know with an OOC comment in the gameplay thread if you need something corrected.
I didn't bother detailing the cargo area because I doubted it would come up.
Hmm, Ruul's stuck to his loincloth because all the other armor and clothing that's come his way has been too binding and chafing, but a kilt isn't too far off from a loincloth so it's possible.
What does Lavinia think?
As everyone rolls their initiative scores and tell me their first round actions, I'll build up a round by round summary of actions that occur so that everyone will know what's going on. I'll let Ruul handle the movement phase to update the map and I'll type out the action sequence. At this point, it is safe to say that this will carry over until tomorrow. I am looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
I'm going to bed soon, so good night. I'll see everyone bright and early tomorrow. I will say that I expect to be busy tomorrow morning, so my posts might be sparse before noon.
A quick clarification, LM, if you don't mind. Would it be kosher for Ally to cast a spell of 'Shield', with a target of 'you' on Elen, based on Share Spells? Or does the sharing only go one way?
If she can't do that, I'm going to switch out wands, if that's alright, for a tiny wand of MA strapped to Ally's thigh, and a wand of shield in Elen's wrist sheath.

Yep, pretty much. Plus I'm in the room with Numair and healing up poor Niles who got laid low by some deadly gnomish booty.
I thought someone was going to make some crack about being "laid low." Several different ways to take that gnome assassin.

I know that RAW indicates the sharing is only one way, but really, kinda defeats the purpose of 'sharing.' Also, I think the rule is designed for your basic familiar/companion/etc. It doesn't think about having a sentient, advanced familiar, and how the relationship can benefit both ways. I am ok with Ally sharing back. There is no need to swap out wands, at least for that reason.
Amazing post that was - I pictured that dreadful, horrible silent moment when all eyes on deck stare at the agonizing man.. (much like the first moment, when the Alien hits Kane's ribcage from within the first time, at dinner)
Sorry bout the inner thinking - the guy is warming up to the group, felt like I had to roleplay it some, giving him more time to grow in character.
But he did speak out loud in bold :D
Sounds reasonable to me. You know, it occurs to me that I should maybe have waited for LM to confirm he's ready to post the Deity's side of things before we began commune... Oh well, it suits Ally's personality anyway, she's pretty impulsive.
