I would like to postpone the time skip for a bit to allow a brief excursion into Heaven, cause I mean, that's a pretty cool thing to do that I don't want to just handwave.
I would prefer for all the PCs to go. After all 6 are included, you have 2 slots you could fill with cohorts if desired. Just let me know if you'd like to bring someone else.
Somehow I doubt that Ayavah wants to go to Heaven right now. I'm good to go.
Variska would love to come, but Xanderghul cautions against it. The headache she would receive due to alignment mis-attunement might make her irrational, and Xanderghul would rather not have such a potential complication.
I was robbed. D: Super-mega-ultra Star to Kiora.
Here's my suggestion for a plan
Xanderghul: memorize Overland Flight and 2x spider climb
Ehren: Memorize 2x airwalk
2) Find the books!
-- Book 1) Val with airwalk and nondetection and mythic heroism
-- Book 2) Hinagiku with spider climb and heroism
-- Book 3) Ary with air walk and heroism
-- Book 4) Isilme + Kule and heroism
-- Book 5) Xanderghul w/Overland Flight and heroism
-- Book 6) Ehren as micro-birb and heroism
After 1.5 hours we meet up and make sure we have all 6 books. If not we reassign people who can do stuff quickly for the next 1.5 hours to take shots at the still missing books, while the others move to research.
3) Find other things!
-- Annabelle, Lann and Valais spend 3 hours each researching ley lines (Find a map of the ley lines, research how to move a ley line) and wardstones (how were they created) and menhirs (how are they created). Even if they cannot do the heavy lifting on the research, they can find books we can check out.
Isilme will also summon a draconic ally who will be tasked with looking for books on magic for her for her absurdly expensive retraining that's coming (although we can assign it to something else if needed).
Everyone else can search for what they'd like. In theory we should have time for each person to research 1.5 things after we retrieve Valais' books.
Happy 20,000 posts everyone! :) Only 6 campaigns on the PBP threads in Paizo have broken 20,000 posts. And I feel confident that we'll make it to 40,000!
Hope everyone is having a good holiday season!
40,000 only, we can do more!
Also, I'll come back to you! But I hope you and Isilme, and everyone else is having a good time preparing for the holidays!
A note: Ary had suggested Xanderghul do the Maze instead, since it might require both int checks and survival, not to mention teleporting might allow you to skip through things. If so she would do the tall one instead (or if she goes forward with her idea to give Isilme more time, she'd do that one as well minimum)
I think Isilme's plan should work and I think I'm ready to go.
If Ary is able to Rally research that she's present for, I'll likely do that. Is she able to?
