Female Human Fighter | HP 32/32 | 1 Hero Point | Perc’ +6 ; Stealth +6 ; Speed 20 ft. | AC 19 ; 21 w. Shield Raised | Fort' +8 ; Ref' +8 ; Will +4 | Active conditions:

I’ll have to look over what equipment I managed to keep and what’s in the caravan, but so far that at least includes a shield, armor, and a longsword.

I’d like to get a katana or a bastard sword so that I can 1H until my shield breaks, then 2H.

Unfortunately Aggressive Block is a poor fit for these plants! We’re not gonna be effective against everything we go up against, but boy are these things good at putting thorns in our sides. Literally, even.


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

You lost your flail, dagger, and broken tower shield. That is "all". With the rune on the shield.

I doubt there would be a Katana in town.
And you need special training for it, right?


Female Human Fighter | HP 32/32 | 1 Hero Point | Perc’ +6 ; Stealth +6 ; Speed 20 ft. | AC 19 ; 21 w. Shield Raised | Fort' +8 ; Ref' +8 ; Will +4 | Active conditions:

It’s a Martial weapon, but it IS uncommon. iirc it’s the Kukri that you’re thinking of? But I don’t recall for sure.


Female Human Fighter | HP 32/32 | 1 Hero Point | Perc’ +6 ; Stealth +6 ; Speed 20 ft. | AC 19 ; 21 w. Shield Raised | Fort' +8 ; Ref' +8 ; Will +4 | Active conditions:

But hey, maybe the caravan would have one!


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

Bastard sword pretty sure.
Katana, must check...


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

For all: you earn 1 Hero Point (tainted with Dragh's demise...).

For Natsume: it will be a DC18 check to see if there is a Katana in the caravan.
You can roll whatever feels good to you (to barter with Tamli, to Seek in the wagons, to think of where it may be...).

For all: what do you wish to sell/buy etc.? So we can do your equipment.


As I said, I take 2 Scrolls of Soothe. That should be good to me, but I may take more of them if people don't use the gold.


Female Human Fighter | HP 32/32 | 1 Hero Point | Perc’ +6 ; Stealth +6 ; Speed 20 ft. | AC 19 ; 21 w. Shield Raised | Fort' +8 ; Ref' +8 ; Will +4 | Active conditions:

I'm gonna call it a Perception check to find it.

Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (6) + 6 = 12

Unfortunately, I don't! Gonna have to get a Bastard Sword, then! That's... 4gp. I've got 6, so it should be enough.


Human Cleric 2| HP 23/24 AC 15| F +4 R +5 W +10| Speed 25| Perception +8 | Focus 1/1

Tamerius will look for scrolls of heal


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

When you have time to clean your clothes, oil your weapons, and talk with Tamli about gear, she hands 3 scrolls of Soothe to Giggett--
12 gp
--and 4 scrolls of Heal to Tamerius--
16 gp
--while she gives a nice bastard sword and sheathe to Natsume.
4 gp

Tamli's 43 gp are gone.
You have 18 gp, 2 sp, 1 cp left from loot on the loot list page.

Do you wish to purchase anything else with the money from the loot?

Natsume will use her old shield, and take the kukri instead of her dagger?

All good?


Female Human Fighter | HP 32/32 | 1 Hero Point | Perc’ +6 ; Stealth +6 ; Speed 20 ft. | AC 19 ; 21 w. Shield Raised | Fort' +8 ; Ref' +8 ; Will +4 | Active conditions:

Natsume will also carry her longsword on her hip. She's got backups for her backups!

If I'm not mistaken, that actually still leaves her with enough room to carry that heavy crossbow as well, so she'll keep that for ranged.


Human Cleric 2| HP 23/24 AC 15| F +4 R +5 W +10| Speed 25| Perception +8 | Focus 1/1

scrolls are noted in my character sheet.


Javelins or Bows are better range alternatives. We have money, let's use it.


Female Human Fighter | HP 32/32 | 1 Hero Point | Perc’ +6 ; Stealth +6 ; Speed 20 ft. | AC 19 ; 21 w. Shield Raised | Fort' +8 ; Ref' +8 ; Will +4 | Active conditions:

See, I kept thinking that javelins were 1 Bulk. Knowing that they're Light...

Yeah, let's hook me up with a few javelins instead!


Keep the Crossbow for long range fight, then. It may be useful.


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

Okay, all good.

Just tell me how much money you end spending on javelins or bows or whatever, and we're good to go.


Female Human Fighter | HP 32/32 | 1 Hero Point | Perc’ +6 ; Stealth +6 ; Speed 20 ft. | AC 19 ; 21 w. Shield Raised | Fort' +8 ; Ref' +8 ; Will +4 | Active conditions:

I'll lug around... 5. If I'm still throwing Javelins after 3-4 turns, we're in a weird situation.

Not that weird situations don't happen, but.


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

And 5 sp for 5 javelins.


Female Human Fighter | HP 32/32 | 1 Hero Point | Perc’ +6 ; Stealth +6 ; Speed 20 ft. | AC 19 ; 21 w. Shield Raised | Fort' +8 ; Ref' +8 ; Will +4 | Active conditions:

The Man Behind The Dwarf mentioned he was traveling, right? I’m good to go once he’s back and ready with a new PC ;)


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

February 9th.

Okay, so then we have a little break...?


Female Human Fighter | HP 32/32 | 1 Hero Point | Perc’ +6 ; Stealth +6 ; Speed 20 ft. | AC 19 ; 21 w. Shield Raised | Fort' +8 ; Ref' +8 ; Will +4 | Active conditions:

I’m fine with that!


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

Giggett & Tamerius, what say you?
In favor or not of a break until Feb' 9?


Fine by me.


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

Okay, let us see what Tamerius says, but with his new job and all I imagine he will be okay.
Besides, that's 2/3 for that.
I just hope you will not forget about the game and move on.


2 weeks is a bit quick to forget about the game and a fresh new PC to include in the party is a good way to put everyone back on feet for what's next.

I'm the sort that can pick up a game a year later and not skip a beat :P no worries!


Human Cleric 2| HP 23/24 AC 15| F +4 R +5 W +10| Speed 25| Perception +8 | Focus 1/1

No worries about me :)

I won't forget the game ;-)


In the meantime, we can still speak tactics. Ideally, I would prefer to avoid frontal confrontation.

What if we go the other direction? They seem pretty solid at getting through our defenses, so what if we hit 'em as hard as possible as fast as possible? 2H the Bastard sword, flanking, take advantage of that Sneak Attack damage, even? Once we got one dropped, we could even retreat, lick our wounds (so the plant doesn't lick 'em instead)...


Can we make more Recall Knowledge checks with Tamerius? We have now some time to think about these creatures and maybe recall new things?

The issue is that we can't control luck. So if our attacks don't hit, we're dead again.

To do that, we should ideally be able to separate them, so we could focus one while the other is occupied elsewhere.

If our attacks don't hit, we're dead again-- but if we're flanking, we're more likely to hit.

Setting up an initial surprise attack and a retreat strategy is definitely a good idea, though. The problem is, if we're right about the Slashing damage thing, there are... approximately 1, maybe 2 ranged weapons that deal Slashing damage. The Hatchet and the Starknife. Pretty short range on both.


Human Cleric 2| HP 23/24 AC 15| F +4 R +5 W +10| Speed 25| Perception +8 | Focus 1/1

I've prepared magic weapon, I can prepare it twice


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

Tell me if you want to heal up fast to go back out a.s.a.p. and hope the bushes did not heal up - or just wait a bit?

(we can introduce a 4th character soon or later, both are fine)

Dragh will play a bush I think!


Wait a bit. The bushes have Dragh's corpse to heal up. The second bush was nearly full hp at the end of the fight thanks to it.

In fact, I prefer this strategy.

Coming to the clearing far away from the wolf corpse, shoot one round at the bushes, quickly retreat in the forest. Come from another side of the clearing, rince, repeat.
It'll take ages, but we can easily stay out of reach. And these creatures being stupid, I don't think they'll understand how to handle that.


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

Hello all,
Doing well?!
I hope the new jobs, the hiking holidays, losing the UK, and all... are good for all.
We shall soon be resuming, it seems.
All shopping good?
Characters ready to lash out...


All fine for me. I should soon have even more time to play (in 5 weeks), so I'm ready to start as soon as Farol's character is up and running.

The EU now has 1 GB of free space ;)

Workin' and being sleepy all at the same time, so nothing unusual on my end. Managed to burn through the whole Uncharted trilogy while we were on break, even!


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

If Giggett or any one wants to try some research and finds a way of doing so, tell me.
And we can see if you make rolls, then.


I was planning on using 2 things:
Recall Knowledge
Gather Information (the ranger may know something, for example)


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

For the Ranger, you will have to wait till you meet up with her.


Ok, so Recall Knowledge and Gather Information in the village first. Do I make checks on the gameplay board?


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

Both are Secret.

I had done your Recall Knowledge already.

And just did your Gather Info'.


We are quite lucky...

The man behind the Dwarf has read the posts and appreciates the waiting. It is my last day in Mexico and tomorrow I will begin the journey back home. I will be able to post on Tuesday, probably I will do something small on Monday but it will be chaotic.

See you soon! Fingers crossed on no one sick on the airplane


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

Safe travels...

Who will appear as the new character, behind--

--the curtain!:
I have no idea.


Good to see you, Farol!
Hope you got nice holidays :)


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

Farol, tell me here or PM me re. your new character when you have time.


The Fall of Plaguestone ; Tarnbreaker's Trail ; Pub Crawl ; Gorget

Hello all,
Hoping you have been well these past weeks. And that you will soon be back in the flow.
Tell me how many days after you believe/want us to be now?
I'd say the minimum is:
• the day you got back
• one day to magically/medically heal up
• two days to shop, ask around, go see how the Temple is moving along
• the morning we will start
So, for me, I'd say this is the morning of the 4th day after your return.
But tell me if you wanted a bit more time (if you want a week or so, and do some earn income with Pari, the temple, whatever).
Also, tell me if you have last things to do or people to see/question before "this morning".


Fine by me.
I'm ready to roll. Just waiting for Farol's new character to include in the party.
