We could just buy potions of endure elements. We could buy 28 which would last us 7 days. That's 1400 gp. Thordak could buy them.
We could buy climbing kits: +2 circumstance.
There's Cold Weather outfit. Actually this is the route Thordak will definitely go. But he would still buy the potions for the rest of you. 21 for 1050 gp.
There's a Rope of Climbing 3000 bucks
And a Rope of Knots 6000 bucks
And we could buy this: Tent pavilion 100 bucks
A wand of endure elements is only 750 and would last us twice as long, but we should all get cold weather outfits in case of dispel magic or anti magic fields.
Yeah but we don't have 55,000 gold. For a minute I was thinking to myself: "I think Thordak's got an instant fortress. Let me check". Unfortunately it was another pc(dwarf also) who's got one in another game.
And yes, Instant fortress is a cool item for sure.
The wand it is then. That's a good idea. Didn't even think about that. You all could use it for yourselves. Thordak will be fine with the cold weather gear.
Now as far as the ropes, who's got 9000 gold because I sure don't.
Okay here's the list:
Cold weather outfits - 32 gold for all 4
Wand of endure elements - 750
Climber's kit - 80/per
Tent pavilion - 100
Does anyone have enough money for either of those ropes? The 6000 dollar one is obviously better but man that's a lot of dough. And it's only a 100 feet long. I don't know. Maybe just regular rope will do? A lot of it? I really don't know. *shrugs*
