You know that New York isn't far behind


Are you sure you want to do that?

Ok, good news my father doesn't have the coronavirus.

Bad news his pneumonia has returned. He doesn't get colds anymore, just goes straight to pneumonia. :(

Can't visit him in hospital sadly, but I am helping my mother.

So sadly no update.

On the American situation I can only watch with disbelief and horror. I really hope things get better over there.

Yes. We here it the States are hoping things eventually get better before they get worse.

Good to hear your father does not have coronavirus, but the fact he has to stay at the hospital and you cannot visit is not so good.

The situation in the US... I don't even know what to say. I get the feeling the initial measures were taken too late?

OK...once we can afford such things and no-one objects?

My suggestion on the 'Crimson Sunset' upgrades should focus on simple speed and maneuverability. That way 'she' can act as a swift scout/flanker/silent-runner for our Commodore's 'flotilla.' I'm thinking a small catapult on the Stern and a basic ballista on the Bow.

I will focus on a crew with light steps and decent skills at both stealth and arms.

Her flag will be black, with a white jaw-less horned and fanged skull centered on a fading sunset blaze of orange/red color.

NOTE: I look at the Crimson sunset as semi-expendable. Our primary ship should always get the best upgrades and magic improvements. The 'Sunset' is mainly to have fun with and see if it can help with as the AP continues...

If we can actually obtain a couple of flying mounts or controlled creatures, the 'Sunset' will excel at scouting and harassing enemies.

Feel free to comment/suggest.

Herzag? You OK with being my second in command? I make fun of our contentious relationship but I don't want to make the game less fun for you.


Are you sure you want to do that?

Good news is my Father is officially doesn't have the virus, and is possibly coming home on Friday.

Since my parents are both in their eighties and Dads health is poor at the best of times I'm still giving Mum a hand for another day or two. So no update again.

The number of cases has been dropping the last few days here. Only six yesterday. Nine deaths, though a large chunk of that was from a retirement home.

DESCRIPTION
Crudely cut amethysts and a single engraved skull decorate
the band of this thick iron ring. The ring grants its wearer a
+5 competence bonus on Appraise checks to determine the
most valuable item in a treasure hoard and a +5 competence
bonus on Heal checks to ascertain details of a dead creature’s
demise. Once per day as a standard action, the wearer can
touch the ring to a corpse or piece of a corpse to learn the
dead creature’s name, gender, race, and profession or role,
as well as the manner of the creature’s death. The wearer
also becomes aware of the location of other pieces of the
corpse if they’re within 1,200 feet. If the body part comes
from a creature that’s still alive or undead, the wearer gains
no information. The ring of the iron skull must be worn for 24
hours before it starts to function for the wearer.

Yep! I'm wearing the ring. I figured it could come in handy later and it fits her style.

Well, the other summon monster spells will be nice to have! Fortunately it only takes me time, not money, to transcribe spells into my book, and I have infinite pages. :)

I'll hang onto the scrolls, if nobody objects.

Cool I'll note those are claimed. Any final takers on anything else? If it wasn't for the fact that it's cost a feat ,and I don't get one until 2 levels from now, I'd be tempered to hold on to one of the guns.

Give them to a favored crewman who can use them for now. We can buy a gun later if needed.


Are you sure you want to do that?

Sorry, busy tonight. No update.


Are you sure you want to do that?

New Zealand is dropping to level 3 lock down on Tuesday. So things are a bit hectic as adjustments are made.

No update tonight sorry.

Hoping things are improving somewhat wherever you are?


Are you sure you want to do that?

Busy all day and got home exhausted. No update sorry.


Are you sure you want to do that?

New Zealand is dropping to Level two gradually until Thursday. Which means shops are opening again, though social distancing remains.

Three new cases since we went to level three, two nurses and one person who returned from overseas.

Busy again, so no update sorry.

To entertain ourselves while the GM is on temp hiatus...

We can sing god-awful Pirate songs to each other!

'The Last Saskatchewan Pirate'

By the Arrogant Worms

Oh, I used to be a farmer and I made a living fine
I had a little stretch of land along the CP line
But times were hard and though I tried, the money wasn't there
And bankers came and took my land and told me fair is fair
I looked for every kind of job, the answer always "no"
Hire you now, they'd always laugh, we just let twenty go!
The government, they promised me a measly little sum
But I've got too much pride to end up just another bum

Then I thought who gives a damn if all the jobs are gone
I'm gonna be a PIRATE! on the River Saskatchewan!
(arr! arr! arr!)

Chorus:
Cause it's a heave-ho! hi-ho!
Coming down the plains
Stealing wheat and barley and all the other grains
And it's a ho-hey! hi-hey!
Farmers bar your doors
When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores
Arr!

Well you think the locals farmers would know that I'm at large
But, just the other day I saw an unprotected barge
I snuck up right behind them and they were none the wiser
I rammed their ship, and sank it, and I stole their fertilizer!
A bridge outside of Moose Jaw spans a mighty river
The farmers pass in so much fear, their stomachs are a-quiver
Because the know that TRACTOR JACK! is waiting in the bay
I'll jump the bridge and knock them cold and sail off with their hay!

Chorus

Well Mountie Bob he chased me, he was always at my throat
He'd follow on the shoreline because he didn't own a boat
But cutbacks were a-coming and the Mountie lost his job
Now he's sailing with me and we call him Salty Bob
A swingin' sword, and skull n' bones, and pleasant company
I never pay my income tax and screw the GST — SCREW IT!
Prince Albert down to Saskatoon, I'm the terror of the sea
If ya wanna reach the Co-op, boy, you gotta get by me!

Chorus

Well, pirate life's appealing, but you don't just find it here
I've heard that in Alberta, there's a band of buccaneers
They roam the Athabasca, from Smith to Fort McKay
And you're gonna lose your Stetson if you have to pass their way
Well winter is a-coming and a chill is in the breeze
Our pirate days are over once the river starts to freeze
I'll be back in springtime, but now I've to go
I hear there's lots of plundering down in New Mexico!

Chorus
Repeat Chorus
Farmers bar your doors when you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores


Are you sure you want to do that?

We haven't heard from some players for some time. Hopefully the worst hasn't happened in this crisis.

Could I please have those still active check in?

Check. Sorry


Are you sure you want to do that?

The problem seems to be on my end. I replied to your actions and didn't see any response after that. So I thought people weren't posting? Apologies on my part.

You get about 16 crew and discover that Sea Naga's like eating birds, not sea gulls but chicken, turkey and Quail. Meat they don't get much of.

So you can now act. Please put in what you are doing.

Hey guys, apologies for the delay - over the last two days got hit pretty hard by high fever and some other messed up symptoms.

In current times... It causes some apprehension on top of the sickness itself. Trying to get back at it, if I can.


Are you sure you want to do that?

No worries. Getting well is the more important priority.


Female Human Cleric 7 HP: 50/50 | AC 19/13/16 | Fort +6, Ref +5, Will +9 (+10 vs Charm/Compulsion)| Init: +3 | Perc: +6

Get tested if you can, otherwise take care of yourself and get some rest.


Are you sure you want to do that?

So what is the group doing? I'll you to tell me what you are doing next before we can cconinue.

As I understand it:

1. The new captured ship, now named the 'Crimson Sunset' will be sailed by a skeleton crew to get it set up to be refitted as a pirate vessel while we continue on in the game. I think we agreed to an all-female pirate crew other than Herzag as my second in command, if we can handle/figure that one out eventually. =)

2. With the current info we have gained we are now off to talk to the Naga? Right? Captain's decision in the end really, so. I had a question about that...does anybody know what language a Naga speaks? Is it Draconic like lizardmen speak? Oh I see...Herzag made the roll to know about them. Its Aquan, but they speak Common too.

Does that work? Anything else?

I think that sums it up Ash - I think we never got any 'result' after trying to recruit lusty wenches to our crew. It is the most important part really.
