I will be traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend here in the US, starting tomorrow. I will have my phone, but cannot guarantee my posting availability. Please bot me if necessary.
So I went to bed last night feeling pretty bad. As I said in my previous post, I've been struggling quite a bit with posting consistently with all of my games. Unfortunately—when I do that and let things slide—it makes me feel even worse about it, which just leads to me avoiding posting even more.
I woke up feeling much more positive, however. The alternative to finding a new GM is that I just do better, of course. Your concerns have fired me up a bit, and I want to post more consistently for you all. I'm going to try and stick to a goal of posting daily in the hopes that we can get the game back on track.
So, I'm sorry that things have been so slow and I'm going to try to do better. If things get bad again, I'll concede that I can't run this the way you guys deserve and look for a new GM. Does that sound agreeable?

So I have a lot of conflicting ways to go here. Garran wants to bury Esmeranda's remains. Alistair and Danni want to check on the kids. Nicoleta wants to get a drink.
Some questions remain: what are you doing with Hookshanks? Are your characters interested in selling the stuff they've found?
I also want to check on the kids, both for moral reasons and in my official capacity as a cleric of Sarenrae.
I am fine with having someone sell off the goods, but Alika is not a great trader and not really skilled in the art of appraising goods or getting a good deal from a pawnshop!
I mean, burying the head can literally be taking 5 minutes to dig a hole in the beach outside and burying it. I’m not talking a full on ceremony.
Danni is ambivalent about Hookshanks. If someone wants to kill him, I don't think she'd care. His association with Lamm means he was probably torturing children for some time. If someone wants to tell him to leave town and never come back, that would be fine as well.
As for the loot, how about this: after we check on the kids, Danni and Alistair can go see if we can dig up some contacts to sell the goods that nobody wants and maybe identify the brooch. Then we can meet back at Nicoleta's bar and split the spoils.
We'll hang on to the magic items (I had a high enough check for Lamm's dagger, but not his armor) until we can properly id them to get the right amount of money.
If anyone wants any particular item, jot your name in column J of the spreadsheet and I won't sell it. Otherwise I'll put 'kept' next to items we're hanging on to for now. Once we meet back at the bar, we can also see if we can find anyone to translate the ledger (or we can work on it ourselves).
How does that sound?
With all the talk of shopping in gameplay, I've updated the Campaign Info tab with more relevant information regarding Korvosa's current status of anarchy.
I've also done some reading on settlement stat blocks and noticed that the various modifiers included actually impact rolls when interacting with aspects of the city.
Let's all try and keep them in mind when going forward.
I will be traveling until next Sunday. I will have my laptop and phone with me so my ability to post will not be infringed...but since I am traveling into another country I will be limited in when I can post. It is not that much money for the international phone plan but we are only using it for emergencies. I will be able to post when we get to the hotel and log in on the laptop. If I am needed and it can not wait till later that night, please go ahead and bot me.
Thank you in advance
Sorry about dropping off the face of the earth!
I do most of my posting at work and between gearing up for our busy season and feverishly trying to finish an audiobook I had on loan from the library, I didn't make the time the post. It turns out that I'm a pretty terrible multitasker.
At this point, I don't think the group's cohesive enough to consider a party share - so five ways works for me.
Nicoleta has no interest in either of the potions.
keen edge and silversheen are both kinda cool, but mostly for fighter types, which I am not. So if they don't want it, sell away
Speaking of loot, as soon as Danni gets another chance, she'll try again to id that damn armor
spellcraft: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 25
Let's hold onto them - if nothing else, Garran will take them.
Everyone gets 619 GP and 8 SP, dividing 3,099 five ways. I agree that we aren't yet cohesive enough to consider a party share - I'm sure we'll get there eventually, but until then, we'll stick to dividing five ways.
