Did that doctor Mcgee spend alot of time saying "Dammit, Talivar, I'm a doctor not a [insert other profession here]!"

Going away on a short trip (hello, Cleveland!). Will be back Monday night. Please bot me.

Thank you for the heads up! Have a safe trip.


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Back!


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Ugh, sorry again.

I will be undergoing a medical procedure next Friday. I will probably not be able to post that day and my next week after that is a giant ? mark. I feel really bad that my life has been so busy lately. It usually is very boring.... Sorry guys.

Real life has a way of creeping up and surprising you when you least expect it! Take care Vorya, hopefully we'll see you back soon after :)

That's right! Take care and have a speedy recovery.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

Thank you for the heads up, Vorya. I hope the procedure goes well. And I would much rather you let us know you'll be away than you just disappear for a week or more, so I really appreciate you letting us know.

I was going to push things forward, but I'll hold off so y'all can discuss how you might lure your foe to you.

Also, going forward, I think it's safe to assume that those capable of healing won't refuse to do so for you, so if you need/want some, I would just roll for it yourself and let us know how many charges you use so the right person can mark it off. The only exception to that might be if multiple people are injured and it's more efficient for Talia to channel.


Female Aasimar Shaman 9 | HP 73/73| AC15 T11 FF14 | CMD 15 | F+7 R+6 W+13 | Init +5 | Perc +21 | Sense Motive +24

I don’t have channel, I have Lore ;)


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

Oops, you're right. Thank you for the reminder. All the more reason for everyone to roll for their own healing. Just need to make sure you have charges left to do so!

So are y'all still working on a way to get your foe out of the gorge or are you planning on going into it?


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Hey! Vorya isn't brave or stupid, just practical.

And a professional, unlike you hired thugs.


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

I am alive but not up to posting quite yet. My cat literally overpowered me.

Good to hear! Be careful with those cats, I would hate for you to be done in by your own felines.

Today/tomorrow (depending on your time zone) is Memorial Day here in the US. As such, I may or may not update us again till Tuesday depending on how things go. If most folks are able to post, then I'll try to update us again tomorrow night.


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Ok, I am back to normal (nose still attached).

I will jump in here.

Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

The GM wants us to sleep.

All the more reason to flee.

Did I say that somewhere or is Vorya just paranoid? : )

To all my games: I'm on vacation for the next week. I might be able to jump on for a quick post, but otherwise don't expect a lot out of me. You're free to bot me if I'm a player, or just banter and discuss things if I'm your GM.


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Went back through and checked a few things:

Sidequests

-Kidnapped Son:

I am in need of a few brave individuals who will rescue my kidnapped son. He is being held for ransom by pirates. This request is being sent by messenger as I am a noblewoman in Osirion. Should you succeed in rescuing my son, you will be rewarded handsomely and I will be sure to put in a good word with the Ruby Prince.

-Buried Treasure

-That Performers wanted request from the dude that performed for the Red Mantis

Multiple stage hands are needed at Ilizmagorti’s one-and-only Nymphaleum. Origent Gamaron is looking for those willing to work hard in preparation for an upcoming performance. Multiple high-ranking members of the Red Mantis are expected to attend, so the performance must be perfect. Prior theatre experience is preferred, but all serious applicants should visit the Nymphaleum to apply. Pay will be commensurate with experience.

-Watchmen Needed

Ilizmagorti has seen an increase of attacks by sea creatures. The Blood Watch seem unwilling or incapable of doing anything about it, so a league of sea captains have agreed to pool resources to pay for watchmen of their own. Shifts will mostly be at night time. Hazard pay will be included for those selected as attacks are expected. See First Mate Lev aboard The Misty Shimmering in the Wharves if you’re interested

-Blood Watch

The Blood Watch will shortly be selecting a few individuals for this duty, but would prefer if willing souls would come forward instead. The Red Mantis are in need of people to find and destroy a cult of Norgorber that is believed to reside somewhere in the city. If volunteers are found, they will be paid for their time in a manner that the Red Mantis deem appropriate. Interested parties should report to Watch Captain Klorn in front of Sawtooth Keep.

-This alchemist thing

-Talking to the Jungle Runners that apparently know a way to the Citadel

-Striking a crippling blow against the Red Mantis - Achieving Kaneano direct aid

-Speak with Jaxira (O.k so this isn't a sidequest, but I think she could be an ally)

Thanks for compiling that Talia. Oh and thanks GM for all the visions, very evocative stuff!

I think we'll need that treasure horde to finance things, I don't expect it to be easy however.

I initially thought hunting the cult of norberger was a good idea, but now I'm not so sure. Some of the Mantis know we're here, seems like that would be inviting trouble?


Female Aasimar Shaman 9 | HP 73/73| AC15 T11 FF14 | CMD 15 | F+7 R+6 W+13 | Init +5 | Perc +21 | Sense Motive +24

I think the cult is a trap. The idea of the Red Mantis having trouble with an established cult in the city is surprising to me.


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

I would pay a great deal to see Vorya, Kilarra and uruelleth be stage hands.

Ahahaha. We'd be so horrible! Kilarra would get fired for sass.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

Don't think there's a need for me to post in the gameplay thread at the moment since you're doing a fabulous job of pushing things along yourselves. I'm quite enjoying it. The roleplaying is excellent.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

Anecdotally, I've added quick links underneath the link to my character profile. I've seen other GMs do it, so I decided to finally do likewise. Hopefully it'll make things a bit easier and quicker to access.


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Annoyingly, the forum wasn't showing any new posts to me. Luckily our GM altered me to the problem.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

Good to see you, Vorya! If you don't see a post for a day or two, it's probably best to check anyway. You'll probably find something new. : )

Sorry Uruelleth's being contrary, but 2,000 gp is exorbitant -- I think that's akin to chartering a vessel. And honestly, once we hand over the gold and the ship sets sail, I don't see how paying them more will make them any less likely to enslave the pair. I think it's more likely that we could watch the docks for word of a ship bound for Taldor, Andoran, or even Cheliax and then they could see if they could get hired on. Feels more practical to me.


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

You could always try to negotiate the price down and see what happens. : )


Female Aasimar Shaman 9 | HP 73/73| AC15 T11 FF14 | CMD 15 | F+7 R+6 W+13 | Init +5 | Perc +21 | Sense Motive +24

Just taking this over to discussion.

Is everyone ok with doing the buried treasure or do we want to do something else? I don't really mind either way, buried treasure has the highest reward but also the highest risk involved and is probably a 1-2 day mission. We would also need to figure out what time of the day to do it. We probably need to speak to the Kaneano since if there are secret ways onto the island, they probably know about them.

I'm just checking this since its probably right about now that I need to update my spell list for the day


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

I would strongly recommend someone try to make that Knowledge (religion) check.


Female Aasimar Shaman 9 | HP 73/73| AC15 T11 FF14 | CMD 15 | F+7 R+6 W+13 | Init +5 | Perc +21 | Sense Motive +24

Oops, meant to and forgot.

Knowledge Religion: 1d20 + 11 + 2 ⇒ (19) + 11 + 2 = 32


Maps | Info | Loot | Talia's Journal

I'll post the result in the gameplay thread for continuity's sake, but feel free to continue your ooc discussion here.


Female Aasimar Shaman 9 | HP 73/73| AC15 T11 FF14 | CMD 15 | F+7 R+6 W+13 | Init +5 | Perc +21 | Sense Motive +24

Cmon guys its only CR 13, we can totally take it :)

That does change things though. Instead of spending all of our wealth on the sailors though, can we ensure that we actually have wealth in the first place? Dropping 2-4Kgp is definitely a significant purchase.

We might need to do Kidnapped Son instead.

For that matter though, how much income do we actually have on our person?

Yikes.

Though I had my suspicions, that's a tall order for us right now.

Looking into the loot spreadsheets, I think we're only around 2,000 gp of group coin, unless there's more somewhere I'm not seeing.

Looks like we're going to need to go into the kidnapping rescue, unless you want me to play some more Knivesies.


Human Inquisitor (Iconoclast) of Shelyn 7 | HP 20/41 | AC18 T13 FF16 | CMD 20 | F+5 R+4 W+7 | Init +6 | Perc +11

Don't we plan on killing a god? Surely a banshee is something we can do before breakfast.


Female Aasimar Shaman 9 | HP 73/73| AC15 T11 FF14 | CMD 15 | F+7 R+6 W+13 | Init +5 | Perc +21 | Sense Motive +24

Yeah I'd probably never have a Fort Save or HP high enough to safely survive. I'd need a really high level Protection from Energy to beat the wail (I have a stratigy for the actual encounter).

Meanwhile I could probably use visions to scout out like, the banshees backstory to try and um, have it not kill us. Kinda hard though considering its CE

We should probably do Kidnapping Rescue and (to be honest) any task that would give us some extra wealth. Its possibly our biggest flaw as a party at the moment.

Kidnapped Rescue and (then most likely) Jurassic Park (AKA Easter Egg Hunt) are our probable level appropriate options.

We have 2600 in gp as a group, plus Kilarra has 1400 in personal gp she was going to use to get someone passage on a ship.

Is there something you want to do with all that money other than fuel your spell casting? Or is just a general desire for more money to buy better gear?

;-P


Female Aasimar Shaman 9 | HP 73/73| AC15 T11 FF14 | CMD 15 | F+7 R+6 W+13 | Init +5 | Perc +21 | Sense Motive +24

I basically never want to use group funds on my spellcasting. Its my cost, and my cost alone, and its unfair to take it from the party pool. I'm sorry if I gave the impression otherwise!

I have small gp wealth of my own I'v been gradually deducting the cost from and used Blood Money to manage the costs of visions. I'm probably not casting Visualization of the Mind in future purely because I'm uncomfortable taking the cost from the party pool and cannot finance it indefinitely on my own small wealth.

What I would want to use group funds on is basically better gear for all of us. My next Hex (level 8, or 10 if we really need me to rush Slumber OP) is probably Craft Wondrous Item so I guess I'm a little selfish in that I probably would need to use party wealth on materials so I could make cheaper items for us. Its still a little way off though since its a full 2 levels away.

Kilarra, if you want to purchase passage now, I'm sure none of us have much of a problem with it, but it does temporarily leave us with limited to no funds until we can get some more. That's not a problem now because that wealth is just sitting there, but could be a potential issue in future until we can fix that.

I'm fine with it either way, Talia's arguing more IC than I am OOC.

With it being the 4th of July here in the U.S., I may not update us again till the 5th (or early on the 6th, technically). I hope I've given y'all enough options for you to decide how to proceed on your own at this point.

Talivar doesn't really have anything specific to do so waiting a day is fine by him.

I've been quiet since I missed the bit about introducing all the side quests and such, so just keeping up.
