It seems the map has changed since I made my post. Sara's no longer between the two rogues, and I don't know who that is to her left?


That's Martella.

I will be traveling tomorrow, but should be able to post late into the day


Zileska, did you want to change your action from last round? I will let you do something different instead of casting true strike since you hadn't seen the updated map.

I guess I'll just channel.


Alright, you can roll in the gameplay thread for the healing from the second channel then. :)

... okay; did someone dull the sword cane's blade when Maria wasn't looking?


Pre-Marriage Alias

Zhi looks away from the tiefling and begins whistling tunelessly.


I have family staying with me starting today until sometime next week, so my posting rate in the afternoons may be less frequent until they leave. :)

I picture a small Tian woman with an accountant's visor, punching away on an old-style adding machine. :)


Once you get clear, Martella will pay you each 300 gp for completing your missions at the gala, plus an additional 500 gp for hazard pay. So you can each add 800 gp to your loot split.


Pre-Marriage Alias

Here's a ooc list of the items Zhi plans on buying:

handy haversack 2000 gp
hat of disguise 1800 gp
noble's outfit 75 gp
boots 20 gp
night camouflage outfit 10 gp
fine whiskey x2 20 gp

Adding in her share of liquidating the goods as well as the reward/payment and subtracting out the above items that gives her a net gain of 100.1 gp

She'd also like to take the unclaimed potion of gaseous form to replace the one she used.

Should we just divide up the potions of CLW? That would give three to everyone but one person.

Dividing up the healing potions would be a good idea. Maria can be the one to get fewer since she's got CLW as an extract.

Sounds like a good loot split to me! Now to decide what I need to buy next...

Also I have a 300gp ring that can be sold so thats another 60gp for everyone! :)


Female Rakshasa-spawn Tiefling Investigator 16 | HP 91/99 | AC 35 T 18 FF 29 | Fort +10 Ref +20 Will +15 | Initiative +5 | Perception +19 (free Insp) | Sense Motive +22 (free Insp)

While I'm sorting out equipment, I may as well sell Maria's old sword cane (base cost 45gp, so sell price of 22.5gp) and studded leather (base cost 25, sell price of 12.5gp). So that's another 35gp, which nicely splits five-ways into another whopping 7gp!

Also, I assume if Maria's getting fewer healing potions than everyone else, that she would be getting two of them, then?


Pre-Marriage Alias

Sitting here in anticipation to see if Sara will be by herself in her inn room on the second night. ;)

She could always bump into Maria; I imagine Darius' place would be, if not in, then at least close to the wealthier districts that Melodie's family would live in.

Aww thanks Sara - you're so sweet. It makes a girl feel special knowing she'd be your third choice! :P

@Maria: might well do that. You're seeing Darius on day 2? I'll wait for a GM response to my new breakfast scene - but then you might be recruiting for Melodie's new spy ring! :D Or teaching her how to use that dagger?

Third choice implies you are less important to Sara than others. She places a heavy emphasis on the lack of hierarchy in her relationships; truth be told she's walking on eggshells around you because of your conversation while she was hammered at the Gala and y'all's past history. She likes Melodie quite a lot and in several ways, but she feels especially like she'd be robbing the cradle with you cause y'all met when you were an adolescent. And as we all know, as a graverobber, cradle robbing is NOT her specialty.

Egad, I'm in the middle of trying to make an IC post but the thread is moving so fast it's difficult.

Awww - aren't you sweet when you're sober ;)

This is heartbreaking to watch. :*(

Oh, but oh so much fun to write. :)

DRAMAAAAA

(and now we get to the "revenge" portfolio)


Pre-Marriage Alias

These things must be done del-i-cate-ly. ;)

Oh come on, Sara's behaving like a right upstanding lady, being resPECTful and all, revenge is hardly necessary


Pre-Marriage Alias

Despite her being inebriated and in unfamiliar heels, Zhi's pretty nimble and quick. Sara wouldn't see her in the hall. I would wager that by the time Sara reaches the girl's room, she's already curled up in a ball on the bed, sobbing inconsolably.

lob - return

:)

Moral dilemmas.

That was an exciting and invigorating night wow. It's been a minute since I RP'd relationship drama and I forgot that I love it.


Pre-Marriage Alias

I know Melodie is trying to help, but, wow, that Mask Misery ability seems almost cruel.

In combat, sure that's great, you can avoid debilitating effects for a number of rounds to make it through the combat.

But out of combat ...

"Here I know you're feeling horribly overwhelmed so let me take that away ... for a minute or so."

Then ... blam ... you get it all back - full force.

Yeesh.

:) :)

Calling it now, Zhi is the precious thing that The Raven stole.


Pre-Marriage Alias

I thought I telegraphed that pretty heavily. :)

The question is, how long until it sinks into her self-belittling brain that she could be considered precious.

I still haven't decided what actually happened to her father ... or if he's actually her father.

If he's still alive and there's a reunion, then that could go all sorts of ways of fun.

Perfect filler for between chapters. :)


If everybody finishes up their day 3 activities today, I will move things along in the morning.


Pre-Marriage Alias

The really creepy thing is that the seeds for the Raven part of the story were already being formed in my head when we found the raven figurine.

Then Sara goes out and buys all those ravens.

:O

Oh my ...


Pre-Marriage Alias

Finished my drama fix - for now. Sorry for taking so long.

Ready to move forward.

But I was just starting to have fun! :) Oh well, we can let this new pot of suppressed feelings simmer for a little while! :D

Great backstory too Zhi! I'll have to start putting some serious thought into Melodie's real mother now... although I imagine that family reunion to be a little less self-affirming than Zhi's is likely to be.

Also, and a completely different note: Braniac, do you do any PFS GM-ing? I'd love to pick up the PFS credit for book one if we could. Not a problem if not but I thought I'd ask just in case. :)


Pre-Marriage Alias

Obliviousness and unrequited affection are always prime meat for storytelling.

If you like that sort of thing, of course. :)


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

Okay, I'll up the stakes: Zhi's going to take the arcane bloodline and Snow White will be her familiar, as a testament both to her friend and her father


Melodie, if you need extra time to explore your feelings, I can delay for another day. ;)

I don't do a lot of PFS, but if the book has been sanctioned, I can fill out a form for you.

Melodie needs weeks and Zhi to catch on to how she feels - we can move on!

Even more stakes upping. Sara is going to be killed soon and the only way we can bring her back is with Reincarnate - as a Tengu! She then retrains in Rogue (Raven Master) or Hunter with bird companions! Zhi ends up completely traumatised!

Re. PFS I'll check. The credit would be most helpful. Thanks! :)

God I hope not.

My goal is to wrap this up by like noon tomorrow (EDT), just so it's out there.

I'm happy to say we're done here. Zhi wanted alone time (and has now moved story on), Sara has Malphene's strong arms to comfort her, Melodie has very strong coffee - I think we're done. :)

EDIT: they've just sanctioned Strange Aeons, so it's going to be a while before they do WotC I imagine. :( Oh well...

Aaaand Sara doesn't realise that Melodie is talking about herself at the end there... good!

I think we're done! :)


Pre-Marriage Alias

Just to give everyone a heads-up. I will be at Kublacon from this thursday through monday. I'll try to keep up with posting, but it may be hit-or-miss until I get back.


Sorry for the delay, I ended up calling out of work so I didn't have a chance to post this morning. I will get something up in the next hour or so.


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 can't believe I said that


Everybody has gained enough XP to reach level 4!

This officially concludes book 1 of War of the Crown. As we prepare to move on to book 2, you will have a week of downtime in Oppara. Feel free to take care of whatever business you want to in the city and wrap up any plot threads you need to here, as the next adventure will leave Oppara behind.

You will now have the opportunity to engage in this adventure path's new subsystem: persona phases. The full rules for cultivating your persona can be found in this PDF: Agents of Change. I will add the link on the campaign info tab.

Your first two persona phases take place during this week, in which you can socialize, spread rumors, or uncover truths in the background to grow your own power base, or dispatch these new agents to assist you. Either your agents will follow you to the next adventure's location, or you can have contacts in the area that you can put to use. Benefits of the second persona phase (and any effects from operations you assign your agents) will last until the end of the next social event.
