I'd say a d6 is appropriate.


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

Damn it, damn it, damn it.

I was in such a rush that I forgot to use bit of luck on myself to get a reroll on the caster level check.


Caster Level Check: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (12) + 5 = 17

I'll let you retcon, but it's still not enough.


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

If we're spending the night, I'll prepare remove curse twice and use the bit of luck power on both, if necessary.


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

I cannot think of any non-third-party divination that will tell me anything useful about the curse. Augury only tells you if something you plan to do in the next hour is a good or bad idea. Divination is 4th level so I won't have it for another two cleric levels. Commune, which would have the best chance of giving a real answer, is 5th level, so I'd have to be a 9th-level cleric, but at that point I could cast break enchantment anyway.

Basically I can't think of anything useful to do.


Pre-Marriage Alias

I show a scroll with break enchantment on it would be 1125gp.

We should get it as a clerical scroll and Zileska would be the most capable caster for it.

Zhi only has a little over 300 gp.

@ GM Brainiac: Would we be able to get one in Lotheedar?

If we can get one in Lotheedar, do we trust these people to watch over the baron here, or do we take him with us?

Or do we just execute him and save us a lot of trouble (and gold)?


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

I think if we restore the Baron he kinda owes us. And if he continues to be a dickbag we may be able to get the loyalty of his men after removing him on the basis that he doesn't deserve to lead if he didn't learn his lesson from the curse.

Note that trying to cast the spell from a scroll is risky. DC 10 caster level check just to use the scroll, and it's wasted if that fails. Given my usual luck with the dice, even with a reroll I'd expect that to fail.


Pre-Marriage Alias

It still beats the heck out of Zhi's chance to cast it by three levels.

Our other option would be to take him with us to Lotheedar and pay a cleric of Abadar to cast it.


Female Human Fighter (Cad) 13, Brawler 2 | HP: 55/185| AC: 19/17 (11 T, 17 F)| CMB: +19/+28, CMD: 28| F: +19, R: +12, W: +7| Init: +7| Perc: +17, SM +12, Dip +45, Intim +39| Speed 35ft| Martial Flexibility 3/4, Serpentine Tattoo 3/3, Beast Form 2 (Lion) 1/1, Terrible Cost 5/5| Active Conditions: N/A

Or bring Lady Paril here, to keep the Baron's condition suitably hidden for his sake


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

As much as I hate the idea of giving money to the church of Abadar, that may be our only option. Assuming we can find a cage-wagon to transport him, and his guards/retainers agree to let him out under our care.


You can find a scroll of break enchantment in Lotheedar, and a wagon to transport Telus here in Jambis.


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

I'm telling you, if we have to use a scroll, I will fail the caster level check, no ifs, ands, or buts.

Here, let's see.

Scroll level check: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7

We need a way that is reliable.


Pre-Marriage Alias

How do you do that?

Grab a wagon here in Jambis. Keep Telus trussed and transport him to Lotheedar. Once there, we buy a scroll of break enchantment and pay a cleric of Abadar to cast it on the Baron.


Female Human Fighter (Cad) 13, Brawler 2 | HP: 55/185| AC: 19/17 (11 T, 17 F)| CMB: +19/+28, CMD: 28| F: +19, R: +12, W: +7| Init: +7| Perc: +17, SM +12, Dip +45, Intim +39| Speed 35ft| Martial Flexibility 3/4, Serpentine Tattoo 3/3, Beast Form 2 (Lion) 1/1, Terrible Cost 5/5| Active Conditions: N/A

I meant to post this before we left Jambis but Sara would have taken the time to dismantle the two remaining benches and two of the coffee tables for some chair legs and table legs.


Of course! ;)


Pre-Marriage Alias

If Zileska doesn't have the cash on her, we could pay for services out of the goods we just received and then reduce her share by an appropriate amount.

The cutlery, the amethysts, and the moonstone together are worth 665 gp. And we received enough assorted coinage to make up the difference.


Female Human Fighter (Cad) 13, Brawler 2 | HP: 55/185| AC: 19/17 (11 T, 17 F)| CMB: +19/+28, CMD: 28| F: +19, R: +12, W: +7| Init: +7| Perc: +17, SM +12, Dip +45, Intim +39| Speed 35ft| Martial Flexibility 3/4, Serpentine Tattoo 3/3, Beast Form 2 (Lion) 1/1, Terrible Cost 5/5| Active Conditions: N/A

Yeah all the cash that Mosle gave us is 994 gp together, so that easily pays the bill.


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

Due to encumbrance it's unlikely that I'm actually carrying 6,000 gold pieces on me, but that's the amount that I have available. Not too worried about the logistics of how the bill gets paid. Could send a message via magic to have money sent to Lotheedar for us, or whatnot.

Does anyone object to Melodie having the crown? It will mean her headband of Charisma becomes available if people want it :)


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

The crown is yours, my lady!

I knocked off the cash cost for the cure. I did not use up the goodies we got from the baron's hoard, so that should be divided normally. I will happily take the healing wand, if that's ok.


Female Human Fighter (Cad) 13, Brawler 2 | HP: 55/185| AC: 19/17 (11 T, 17 F)| CMB: +19/+28, CMD: 28| F: +19, R: +12, W: +7| Init: +7| Perc: +17, SM +12, Dip +45, Intim +39| Speed 35ft| Martial Flexibility 3/4, Serpentine Tattoo 3/3, Beast Form 2 (Lion) 1/1, Terrible Cost 5/5| Active Conditions: N/A

I'm very interested in the headband, but I'll cede it if Zhi or Maria want it. I'll make a story post later tonight; been busy.

I'll pass on the headband - high Diplomacy modifier and Inspiration aside, Maria's more the brains rather than the charm. Hell; Sara's Dip mod alone is already better than what Maria could do even with a good Inspiration roll.


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

I'm saving up for a headband that's +Wis and +Cha, since the latter affects my channeling as well as social skills, so feel free to take this one.


Pre-Marriage Alias

Go ahead and take it, Sara. Zhi would be casually interested in it for a couple of reasons, but she's so far above WBL right now that it's not even funny.


Baron Telus, de-monsterized

"Tail" as old as time...


Pre-Marriage Alias

Remember, Safewords are your friends.


Pre-Marriage Alias

Go get her, Sara. :)


Pre-Marriage Alias

Just a heads-up. Heading to Reno for the weekend (starting tomorrow AM) so my posting will be sporadic till Sunday evening or Monday morning.


Is there anything else you would like to do in Lotheedar outside of personal interactions?


Female Human Fighter (Cad) 13, Brawler 2 | HP: 55/185| AC: 19/17 (11 T, 17 F)| CMB: +19/+28, CMD: 28| F: +19, R: +12, W: +7| Init: +7| Perc: +17, SM +12, Dip +45, Intim +39| Speed 35ft| Martial Flexibility 3/4, Serpentine Tattoo 3/3, Beast Form 2 (Lion) 1/1, Terrible Cost 5/5| Active Conditions: N/A

I'd like to meet with the Night Swan but frankly I'm unaware how I could organize that.


We are going to start a Persona Phase when you get back to Stachys, but you could go ahead and take your action now to arrange a secret meeting.


Pre-Marriage Alias

Zhi's got nothing else she wants to do in Lotheedar.


Okay, I will move things back to Stachys then and you can all start your persona phase.


Female Human Fighter (Cad) 13, Brawler 2 | HP: 55/185| AC: 19/17 (11 T, 17 F)| CMB: +19/+28, CMD: 28| F: +19, R: +12, W: +7| Init: +7| Perc: +17, SM +12, Dip +45, Intim +39| Speed 35ft| Martial Flexibility 3/4, Serpentine Tattoo 3/3, Beast Form 2 (Lion) 1/1, Terrible Cost 5/5| Active Conditions: N/A

So a temple (probably to Calistria) and what else should we build? How much left do we have in our town coffers?

My vote is the pub and an advanced something.

Also what should be our next sidequest pursuit? What do we still have? I like both the virgin sacrifices and the big catfish personally.

Im curious about the virgin sacrifices and the idea that the Night Swan might be some sort of vengeance spirit - I say we get that!

As to building: we get enough money for a temple (Calistria I agree). Anything else we'll have to pay for ourselves. What's our funding looking like now oh mighty accountant Zhi?


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

I vote for the virgin sacrifices. Terrible waste of perfectly good virgins.


Female Human Fighter (Cad) 13, Brawler 2 | HP: 55/185| AC: 19/17 (11 T, 17 F)| CMB: +19/+28, CMD: 28| F: +19, R: +12, W: +7| Init: +7| Perc: +17, SM +12, Dip +45, Intim +39| Speed 35ft| Martial Flexibility 3/4, Serpentine Tattoo 3/3, Beast Form 2 (Lion) 1/1, Terrible Cost 5/5| Active Conditions: N/A

Oh and before I forget

Charm, Arrange Secret Meeting, DC 23: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (16) + 8 = 24

So that's Charm Rank 4, giving me two more agents and Indifferent Admirers

I will get to this as an IC post later tonight.


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

Fail at everything: 1d20 ⇒ 6

No persona phase for me, as usual.

Also, re-reading the Agents of Change doc I realized I screwed up my last phase, I should've gotten a rank of Sacrifice instead of Heroism from doing the women's health clinic.


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

Persona, Drive Legislation DC25: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (16) + 10 = 26 Pass, so now rank 5 in Charm.

Also - GM, if we make the statue religious somehow can we use the overspill money from our new Abadarian to build a statue as well as the temple?


Yes, I will allow that.


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

In which case our 5000gp of free stuff can build us a 4000gp temple and a 1000gp statue to the local religious culture.

Should give us a Level 1 cleric and 3 loyalty points! :)

Anyone object?


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

No objection! I expect the statue will be something like Calistria seducing Abadar, or... who knows. :)


Female Human Fighter (Cad) 13, Brawler 2 | HP: 55/185| AC: 19/17 (11 T, 17 F)| CMB: +19/+28, CMD: 28| F: +19, R: +12, W: +7| Init: +7| Perc: +17, SM +12, Dip +45, Intim +39| Speed 35ft| Martial Flexibility 3/4, Serpentine Tattoo 3/3, Beast Form 2 (Lion) 1/1, Terrible Cost 5/5| Active Conditions: N/A

I'm in favor again of also banding together to improve the pub, and maybe doing an advanced civic improvement.


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

Pub keeps Oorka happy, everything else is gravy!

I'm just excited to get a teeeeemple

Gonna be back in buiiiiiisness

Pub is 4.5K - so that would be 900gp each. Can we all afford that?


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

I can afford 900
