The Threefold Deaths of the Venerable Theseus

Game Master Mervikoth

Two years ago the Venerable Theseus sank beneath the waves under mysterious circumstances. Once devoted to the semi-divine Theseus, the ship was destroyed in a blast of malevolent energy unlike anything seen before. Five brave souls set off from Pridon's Hearth to discover the meaning behind the haunted wreck. Things thought long buried will rise again. Friendships will be tested. The limits of body, heart, soul, and mind will be passed. One death, and even two, may not be enough.

I have given up on the warpriest and inquisitor. Since, Brandon has decided to join, I don't care what character I play, and I don't really know what the new party needs, I have decided to retain the services of Alset.

Details:
I have, however, acquired a new name for our beloved paladin. During the 2 years after the defeat of the lizardy/stormy bad guys, Alset spent much of his time with Mud in the halfling village and because of his improved prowess with the adamantine bow and his ability to not easily be seen or noticed (high praise from the sneaky halfling community), they gave him the name Bragoleb, which means "Sudden Silver." You don't notice a thing and suddenly there's a flash of silver, a solid thunk, and an arrow quivering in its target. He also acquired an animal companion, a charcoal gray owl named Shadow that will retrieve arrows and hunt and do other stealthy things without being seen or heard.

As you may recall, Alset has a high stealth and a silent flying owl that can retrieve arrows made sense.

Correct. You can mingle with NPCs and each other all you want. Like when we were on board the ship last time talking. When I have time I will post responses of NPCs.

@GM - Is the BU an outdoor establishment? Your link to the map shows tables(?) and barrels(?) on a beach.

Also, will you create a shared folder for all our maps, character sheets, etc.?

No, I'm sorry, I did not recall. I remember Odie fighting on the beach in some sort of contest, but not the name of the place. I take back all I said/wrote about having my characters back to the wall to see the entrance of the BU.

You could *not* sit with your back to the beach, watching the paths between the palm trees for newcomers.

There is a physical building (cramped, small) where you can stay the night, but it is obviously not the appeal of this place. There is also the newly-built Temple/Classroom/Forge (built on either the old Temple of Erastil or the lumbermill) if your PC wants a different place to stay the night. I think those had rooms, right?

Yes, the exact same person with a new name given by the halflings. I'm just that lazy. But, I did have him shave so I could get a new avatar.


Swaying Lantern, Shattered Range | Month, Day, 4719 Part Three Map: The Sexton and the Saint

He probably did it to avoid the "No two names starting with the same letter" rule. Maybe our inquisitor could be... Barbaro? LOL JK.

Tangential Question: What color do you like associated with your PC? We color code things in the Campaign Tracker (which, no, I haven't set up yet). Tell me if you agree with the below:

Arbaro: Green (cause he's woodsy)
Bragoleb: Gray (Cause that's like silver but readable)
Lem: Red (His hair is red, and barbarians have fiery personalities.)
Thurl: Brown (Clothes are all brown, and monks are poorly/simply clothed.)

Brown is very fitting for Thurl. I guess that just means that next time I need to make a character that would naturally be associated with purple.

Also, continuing my tradition from Stonewall, Thurl is named after someone.

That’s why I like dwarves. I always see them as having last names that are compound words that are descriptive of what they do or their families have done in the past so I have an easier time naming them.


Swaying Lantern, Shattered Range | Month, Day, 4719 Part Three Map: The Sexton and the Saint

A lot of hobbits in Tolkien had compound names like that too.

I also like to go HERE and look up names inspired by real-world linguistic groups.

I assume he likes purple, but don't know. Maybe a Ravens or Vikings fan.

Thurl was a voice actor/singer. He's the singer of the Grinch song (Stink, Stank, Stunk...), i.e., "39.5 ft. pole" and the voice of Tony the Tiger, i.e., Triple T.

I knew who he was (thanks, Alexa, for saying the artist every time we play the Grinch song) but didn't get the abbreviated cereal mascot character connection.

Also, he sings this bit here which is just ridiculous. He's in a bunch of disney stuff including (among many others):

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (Honey Pot in the trippy dream sequence)

Aristocats (one of the cats in the band toward the end)

Alice in Wonderland (one of the Cards)

Brave Little Toaster (IMDb says Kirby but its been so long since I've seen it that I've forgotten who Kirby is, I just remember his voice)

Should Brag know (be able to speak) Polyglot or Halfling? I'm thinking Halfling. Yep, Halfling, it is.

I just shifted some skill points around. I don't think it affected any skills I've already used except a knowledge skill here or there by 1 point. Just wanted to make it so that I had the same bonus for all Knowledges so that I don't have to keep track of each one.

I researched rage abilities poorly and took a more appropriate feat as well I think.

practical changes
1. I can no longer cleave, but I can intimidate as a free action in combat.
2. I move faster and can't do 2 things I was probably never going to remember to use anyway.

The last 10 d20 rolls have resulted in 2 20s, 2 19s, and 1 18. And, of course a single 1. Things are trending up.
