The DM pulls up a chair and takes out a bag of popcorn, watching with interest.

So this all depends on whether we are staying in Stachys long-term, and whether we can leverage the downtime system...


If you succeed at your mission, the Palace of Birdsong will be Princess Eutropia's new base of operations for the rest of the campaign, and you can keep the Betony Estate and keep fixing up Stachys to your liking. You may make use of the downtime system later if you'd like.

You are not turning Stachys into a nobleman's playground Zil - even if it would be immensely profitable! :P

Oh, no, we will just have the best boarding and finishing school for the highest quality ladies. Who might also be courtesans.

*groans*

Of course they won't be 'noble' ladies, else the Mockingbird might come and cut them down to size!


You now have lots of quests to choose from. Let me know which one you want to pursue first.

I didn't mark the location of Gold Canyon on the map, but it's halfway between Stachys and New Towne.

Hey if nobles wanna become courtesans, all that means for Sara is she gets to be surrounded by attractive women.


Pre-Marriage Alias

Ok, now I picture Sara as the butch gym teacher at an all-girls school.

Basically I am thinking of founding a finishing school - so you send your aristocratic kids there to learn table manners, courtly graces, how to dance, how to dress, Taldan history, how to write poetry, etc. But we pick out the real winners and offer them other opportunities.

Think of like... any of those sort of Western-themed or Victorian-themed finishing schools, where being a graduate of that school means that you are trained to be a "high society mixer" and so it's a desirable education for young aristocrats. Makes you much more eligible for marriage, so nobles would fight for a chance to have their kids placed, as the "polish" improves their chances of finding a match above their station. Behind the scenes, of course, Zileska watches for the ones who are clever and cunning enough to break the rules of the boarding school to get what they want, and then she offers them a different path.

On the outside, the place is just a finishing school and academy for training gentlemen and gentlewomen with a refined education.


Two votes so far to find the missing acolytes. One more vote and I will post along those lines, unless everybody else wants to pursue a different quest first.


Pre-Marriage Alias

If I vote a second time, does that count. ;)

Fiiiine I suppose we can go find the Abadarans, it's at least something to do. But I don't have to like it! *pouts*

*pouts with cookie in her mouth*

Seriously though it's as good a lead as any. Zileska just doesn't like Abadarans!

I say we find the cookies!

So, votes ... sweet ... or creepy. :)

My vote is still like mega creepy


Pre-Marriage Alias

Question for DM Brainiac; At our current point in time, is Malphene still visiting or has she left?


She is still visiting. She will leave during the next persona phase.


So, do you want to go to Lotheedar first or investigate Baron Telus in Jambis?


Pre-Marriage Alias

If it wasn't clear already, Zhi isn't interested in going to Lotheedar until we've looked into what happened with Baron Telus. :)


Female NG Changeling Mesmerist (Vox) 17 | HP:93/93 | AC: 25 (17 Tch, 21 Fl) | CMB: 11, CMD: 25 | F: +8, R: +17, W: +17 | Init: +8 | Perc/SM +23, Bluff +44(49), Dip +38, I +34, Dis +34, UMD +22, Spcft + 18, KnwA +16| Speed 30ft | Spells: 1: 7/8, 2: 6/7, 3: 5/7, 4: 4/6, 5: 6/6, 6: 1/3 | Tricks: Alac, Curse (M), Free (M), Gift, Visions (M) 10/17+1; Words: 10/12 | Mask: DT (DC20) 9/9, TS 1/1 | Active: See Invisbility, Echolocation

Melodie was going for Lotheedar, but will defer to what seems to be the consensus that we should track down Telus first. :)

LONG long shot, but could I like roll Handle Animal to try and idk get on their side? I imagine they're vermin or Magical Beasts so like no, but who knows.

Could I pay 7gp and make the Craft check to have brewed up a vial of Alchemist's Fire retroactively? I've been meaning to have Maria do that at some point after the party's arrival in Meratt but I kept forgetting.


Pre-Marriage Alias

I actually don't think inflated spiders will really give us that much trouble. However, Zhi is freaked out by creepy crawling vermin things like that.

famous last words


You can't use Handle Animal against vermin. You would need the vermin empathy ability of a mite or blight druid.

Maria, you can retroactively make alchemist's fire.


Zhi, you'll have to get up within 30 feet if you want to sneak attack them. You can do so as a move action as you draw your bow.


Pre-Marriage Alias

*smacks forehead*

Sorry about that. No, just drop the sneak attack damage. She wouldn't want to make herself that vulnerable for ... *shiver* spiders.


Need actions from Sara and Zileska.


I will wait for the others to react to the situation as well before I post again.


Ugh, please ignore the typos in the previous post, and any more that might crop up. It is hard to type on a laptop while lying on the couch with a newborn on top of me.


Pre-Marriage Alias

*cute photo op alert*


Zhi, the baron is still on the ceiling, 30 feet up. You can shoot at him with your bow but can't hit him with your rapier this round.


Pre-Marriage Alias

Now wait, I see people in martial arts movies run across the ceiling all the time. Are you saying that that's not possible? Are you saying that they've been lying to me?

Sorry, my bad, forgot he was on the ceiling.

Sadly, Zhi, this is not the world of Thunderbolt Fantasy. :P


Sara, your attack roll was a natural 20, so you can roll to confirm the crit!

Melodie and Zileska are up as well.

Sorry guys - been out of town at a friends reunion roleplaying game. Catching up on 28 posts now! :)


Pre-Marriage Alias

Dawwwhhhh!!!


Melodie, you would need to be directly under the baron to get him in range of your voice.


Female Half-Elf Cleric 17 | HP 105/105 | AC 21 T 14 FF 19 | Fort +12 Ref +9 Will +17 | Initiative +2 | Perception +8 | Channel Energy 5/6 | Dazing Touch 8/8 | Bit of Luck 8/8 | Good Fortune 2/2

Just so everyone knows, remove curse is touch range, so if that's the goal, either I need to get to him, or we need to get him to the ground.


You could try to use suggestion and ask him nicely to come down, assuming you aren't nauseated this round.

Well Maria could always burn the webs away with the alchemist's fire - that's why I had her drink that true strike extract; make sure the vial hits the baron and let the splash damage ignite the webs. With the distance I'd be taking a -6 or so penalty on the attack roll, so want to make sure it hits.


Melodie, you'll have to make a concentration check to cast a spell while grappled by the web (DC 15 + spell level).

How much damage would that bench or coffee table beside me do as a weapon? Or is it inaccessible because of the webbing?


Pre-Marriage Alias

Oooo... I wanna see Sara hulk-out. :) :)
