GMDQ's Skull and Shackles

Game Master DeathQuaker

A small band of mariners find themselves press-ganged into service on the Wormwood, led by the fearsome Barnabas Harrigan. Will they turn their misfortune to glory on the high seas, or will folly lead them to an ignominious watery death?

Is it possible to grab a Cure Light Wounds wand here?

Yup!


Male Sylph Witch 7 |HP: 49/49| AC/T/FF 21/17/16| F 2 R 4 W 5 CMD 17| Init +3, Per +3, Prof (Sailor) +1

Then I shall do so.


My last bit of shopping is to make sure we have something to melt down those silver bars Lark got from the monastery. I hope a small crucible will be enough to melt and pour the silver when we're ready to make a new seal.

I suppose we also need to get Corwin to hand over their necklace.


Ghoral-Rey + Land Battle Map + Ship Battle Map + Loot+ Besmara's Whim and her Crew

I'm actually not quite sure what to do with Corwin. His amulet was of course supposed to play a role, as was his family history. In character he wouldn't give up on finding out more. It feels weird to write him out, but I struggle to bit PCs well long-term. I can minmize the history stuff but it would make sense to keep him there. Would one of you be willing to bot Corwin, at least as far as combat goes?

He would then leave after receiving closure from his personal quest.

I'm already in charge of Sandara in combat, but if Lark won't bot him, I will.


Ghoral-Rey + Land Battle Map + Ship Battle Map + Loot+ Besmara's Whim and her Crew

Oh, and yes, Lark can get a crucible to melt the silver. Let's call it 5 gp.


Yes, I can bot Corwin.

A crucible and some charcoal, unless a torch would be enough heat to melt silver.

Reviewing some previous notes I see I also talked about bringing extra food. An early symptom of the mist is mundane hunger, we might as well prepare to treat that since it's easy.


Male Sylph Witch 7 |HP: 49/49| AC/T/FF 21/17/16| F 2 R 4 W 5 CMD 17| Init +3, Per +3, Prof (Sailor) +1

Thanks for taking that on. I can barely manage myself.


Female Changeling? Magician 20

Extra food makes sense. I'm guessing Sandara mentioned it to you as normally you don't show a lot of that. Admittedly, Thren's worse off than you there!

Thanks for botting Corwin. Now we each have an extra person or dragon :)


Ghoral-Rey + Land Battle Map + Ship Battle Map + Loot+ Besmara's Whim and her Crew

Thanks, Lark. We can assume Corwin grows quiet as he contemplates his grandfather's history, but this way we also keep the fighter for this party, which will make it easier for me to... uh, not kill you all.

I mean, I don't want it to be too easy...

Please post in the game thread when you're ready to go.

Charcoal is fine and inexpensive--we'll say 1 sp a pound for properly processed charcoal.


I probably should've had Lark run around behind the officer for flanking last turn! I was too worried about the AoO, but now I'm looking at having Corwin make that same move. I don't think it's even possible for him to dodge the AoO.

Unless... should Corwin Bull Rush the officer, try to make it fall to the lower level? Also, we need to protect Threnody.

Kahuranga - are you still going to try that hex again?


Female Changeling? Magician 20

I'd suggest going with something simple: Corwin carve the officer up. Tends to work well!


Ghoral-Rey + Land Battle Map + Ship Battle Map + Loot+ Besmara's Whim and her Crew

I will note Corwin does far more damage than 2d6 falling damage. But pushing the officer to the lower level will make him have to move rather than attack and gives you more positioning/rescuing Threnody time.

(Which is to say I am not advising you either way, just hopefully pointing obvious features of both tactics)


Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Best wishes to Lathiira and all others interfacing with retail this week.


Female Changeling? Magician 20

I wish it would be merely 'interfacing' instead of 'surviving' alas, but thanks all the same!


Ghoral-Rey + Land Battle Map + Ship Battle Map + Loot+ Besmara's Whim and her Crew

Happy Thanksgiving all! May be spotty the next few days.


Female Changeling? Magician 20

Happy Thanksgiving to all. Unless you Christmas shop today or tomorrow, in which case Bah Humbug! :)

First: damage falling rocks does to Thren.
Second: same, to Lark.
Third: same to Kahuranga?

LOL


Ghoral-Rey + Land Battle Map + Ship Battle Map + Loot+ Besmara's Whim and her Crew

I will move us forward tomorrow.


For future reference, can Corwin move over the stairwell to reach the other side of this platform?

Also, the Misfortune Hex applies to all rolls while it lasts (1 round in this case). I think that is what Kahuranga is using: AoN Witch Hexes


Corwin's bow should be able to do some damage to Yoha, but I was really hoping to kill that ghast he's engaged with. Either way, nine rounds without our casters is going to be rough.

Maybe we should withdraw downstairs?


Female Changeling? Magician 20

I'd say we should finish what we've got. Without casters it'll be a physical fight for the most part. Withdrawing into smaller quarters will actually now put the casters at greater risk because it'll put the enemy closer to them.


Ghoral-Rey + Land Battle Map + Ship Battle Map + Loot+ Besmara's Whim and her Crew

Threnody, I am sure you have a highly well formed strategic plan, but I was thinking maybe you, you know, might want to read over your class abilities. You know, just for fun and no reason in particular.
