I’d be fine with that. You’d look like you were wearing a stag skull...but hey...+2 is +2...

We could RP it out you requesting it when we get back to town if you want!

Fine with me!

Let us know when the final totals are tallied and we should update our sheets!

Everyone would take the prior total I mentioned plus another 14 each for the harp.

So 1,168 gp total each. The Group Loot gains another 16 gold above what I posted above. Making my own additions to my sheet now.

Edit:

Reminder, this is all BEFORE the newest loot from the Hodags is dealt with (again, once we return to town).

New Loot:
3 handaxes,
1 masterwork greataxe,
A suit of +1 studded leather armor,
+1 keen spear

Now I have enough money to EITHER enchant my primary weapon to +1, or get my Mithral Shirt enchanted.

Since I've got a better AC right now than the +1 Shirt will get me, I figure the weapon is the higher priority.


Are you sure you want to do that?

Sorry, my health is bad at the moment. So no update.

Get well soon, boss!


Are you sure you want to do that?

Just an update for you. I've had Meniere's disease for 30 years now. I haven't had a bad spell in over 5 years but last week it flared up again and put me on my back.

It's fading again and from experience I should be good to go in a day or two. Thanks for your patience.


Are you sure you want to do that?

Good news. I'm nearly back to normal.

Bad news I've got to catch up on a few things that got undone while I was busy being sick. So tomorrow I'll be back to updating.

Thanks for waiting.

The event for the month is:

1. Good weather and roll again.
2. Beneficial Kingdom event.
3. Political calm.

Political Calm: A sudden absence of political machinations coincides with an increase in public approval. Unrest decreases by 1d6.

Until the next Event phase, you gain a +2 bonus on checks to resolve continuous events. If your kingdom has no Unrest and no continuous events, both Loyalty and Stability increase by 1.

Any planned buildings for this month?

Went ahead and did the basic kingdom stuff. But didn’t build anything yet (aside some roads) until we discuss what to build next. Or we can save again this month.

Question to the DM: Do the hexes containing Oleg’s and the one NE of it that we’ve claimed already have roads on them, as the map seems to suggest? Just curious for our roads tally...

Also, per the notices we’ve just completed, we have the following bonus rewards:

1,200 gp in potions of our choice
Cloak of Protection +1 (never heard of this...is it actually meant to be resistance?)
A kiss from Lady Teskerton (or more) to Josef? ;-P

Did we already collect the reward for Northern Howls?

Side note to Isabella: per the kingdom rules...

River: A River allows water travel through your kingdom, facilitating trade and allowing irrigation. Economy increases by 1 for every 4 River hexes claimed, and Stability increases by 1 for every 8 such hexes claimed.

By my count we now have 7 hexes with rivers in them, 9 if the lakes connected to them count as well. Is this incorporated into our spreadsheet stats?

Also, our new road tally is either 3 or 5, depending on the above answer from DBH.


Are you sure you want to do that?

My father has just had an operation. He's had a malignant melanoma removed from one of his toes. Needed a skin graft.

He's been told to bed rest for seven days, so I will be spotty with my updating over the next week while helping my mother with him.

Dad is the worlds worst patient, hates being dependent on others and hates being told what to do. Mum was a nurse for 50 years and takes no s*#~ from anyone, so it's going to be fun. :)

@Darian. No I don't believe you've received that reward yet.


HP: 52/52 | AC: 19(Current 21), Touch: 14(Current 16), FF: 15| Fort: +3, Ref: +11, Will: +2 | Perception: +14(+16 vs Traps) | Init:+10

man foot stuff sucks too. No way for it to heal well except to stay off of it. Good luck and best wishes on a speedy recovery for him.

Don't envy you providing care, but I do envy you the time with family, whether it seems fun at the time or not.

------------

I don't know if our facilities include a training set-up or not, but it worked for the text for me to assume it doesn't, so . . ..

Yeah...that sounds like a lovely combo I’m all too familiar with. Good luck buddy!


Are you sure you want to do that?

Ok, did you have any building you wanted to buy this month?

You still have time for several more months of adventuring before winter sets in.

Naw...let’s bank the BP for now and head back out to finish off the last section of the map. Then we can come back and focus on the kingdom some more.

Isabella: do you want me to take over the reigns of kingdom stuff for a bit?

As to Notice loot:

24x CLW potions = 1,200 gp. Probably biggest bang for the buck. That’s 24d8+24 vs 8d8+12 if we did 4 CMW potions. So...24 CLW potions added to Group Loot.

Cloak of Resistance +1...who wants it?

1,200 gp reward for northern howls...200 gp each

I think this just leaves Shamblesap and a Forest Drake...bodes well for our next trek out...

We'll need containers for the sap. How much sap does a mound hold, I wonder? Should be a lot, I think.

Edit:

Cloak of Resistance

Is that the one from Lily? If not, we have 2, then, right?

Regardless, we have 3 that could use one. In alphabetic order: Fenrir, Isabella, or Johanna.

Okay, so . . .. None of us have Item crafting feats. Doesn't bother me, but, I'm trying to figure out how I get the blade enchanted if the most powerful figures in the area can't do it.

Do I have to send it off and wait? If so, I guess that can wait until "adventuring season" is over, ya know? The mechanical difference is really pretty small, so, no true harm in waiting, I just want to do it in a way organic for our story.

Leadership...Cohort...

That’d be one way. Though they might (realistically) not just sell it to you at crafting cost. But at least the option would be available inside the city.


Are you sure you want to do that?

Ok, I'm back. Let me know where you are heading?

@Josef. Congratulations, the lady is very impressed and appreciative.

24, 23, and then 22.

As the kingdom grows if we add a mage tower or magic shop you may be able to get it enchanted there, but yes if leadership is allowed that would give us more loyal people to fill roles and provide crafting.

Unfortunately I need a custom cloak of resistance made along with Muleback cords so I can carry my gear and armor. So I won't be needing taking a cloak for a bit :) Added 200gp to character sheet.

Freya will likely be taking Crafting Feats from here on out too, so with those taking Leadership (Freya won't be - she's got enough of a menagerie as is), let's coordinate so that we cover as many bases as possible.


Are you sure you want to do that?

Sorry, this should be on the gameplay thread. I got lost.

Dark Secrets:

random Hex24: 1d100 ⇒ 77
random Hex23: 1d100 ⇒ 96
perception: 1d20 + 13 ⇒ (11) + 13 = 24
Stealth: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (8) + 16 = 24

Your travel is peaceful, through lakeside woods and then deeper into the trees.

Perception check DC26:

As you travel through Hex23 you become aware that the party is being stalked by a Forest drake. Degenerate cousins of green dragons, always evil and hungry for flesh.

What are you doing now?

Nothing for me.

Sorry. Monday has ambushed me, so no update today.

The week from hell continues, I'm battling bureaucracy for new hearing aids at the moment. And I'm arriving home too tired to focus. Hopefully things will have cleared up by Friday and I can get back to doing something I like.

Hey. I have surgery in the morning. Pretty minor, but it IS surgery. Outpatient, with a normal "don't work" period of 2 days, and a "no exertion" period of like 6 weeks.

I should be giving all my games another pass this evening, but I make no promises for the next day or two.

What is it? An umbilical hernia repair. Surgeon says I have multiple hernias right there together. All I know for sure is the general practitioner who referred em to the surgeon had it right when he said it looks like I'm going to give birth to a Titleist.

Was at the hospital from about 0730 till about 1615. Home. reasonably awake, and medicated. The entire area over the hernia and belly button is under s bandage I'm not supposed to touch until Saturday, so all I know is I have some ugly looking injuries from where the laparoscopic entry points were on my left side. Not as limited in my movements this morning as I thought I would be, which is good. Abdominal muscles are a little tight, though. Don't think I can blame them. I figured they would be a LOT more mad than they seem to be.


Are you sure you want to do that?

Yesterday was a public holiday in NZ, today and tomorrow I'll be preparing for heading out to look after my father for a week while Mum has a holiday visiting her grandchildren in Australia.

So posting may be spotty over the next two weeks, hopefully it will be as it usually is and I'll have some free time to keep things rolling.


Are you sure you want to do that?

Good news I've arrived at my parents, bad news is I've arrived at my parents. I'm switching between my parents to watch Dad, and my brothers house to watch over his crazy dog, and he doesn't have a computer?

So the next week will be spotty sorry.


Are you sure you want to do that?

Ok all, tomorrow I will be moving back to a house with a computer, then I head home on Friday. Oh well. So updates tomorrow all going well.

I'd like to thank everyone for their patience, I'm back home and rested. Along with a nice new keyboard. Replacing my old one that I had for six years.

You get so used to something you take it's faults as standard. I'm finding a key board where I can read the keys and use all of them as strange and new :).
