No you're not restricted to the Palace although you're going off piste if you wander off.

The AP assumes you'd want to chat and influence the nobles, you don't have to of course. I'll need to make some adjustments if the group wants to learn a bunch of things from the servants and other commoners.

I don't ski, and now I've learned a new word. Cool.

I was thinking of trying to mess with Titus Lotheed to influence, by means of skullduggery, the outcome of the joust. I'll wander in that direction. My original intention was to abscond with Sepsinia, but I think she's in more capable hands.

Triphylla's human Disguise is active for 40 minutes, at which point she has one more extract she could append another 40.

I have most of a post figured out now but one last question. Were we here under our own names or under aliases?

As I understood, being relatively unknown figures, we can use our own names for convenience. Lope and Julia were requested just to use the Betony surname instead of their own. We only were advised on the convenience of a cover identity for when we go out on a mission out of our domains.

Cyrene will answer to pretty much any name but hopes that everyone has enough common sense not to use her real one. :P

Also a question for everyone - I was thinking about taking the Whip use vigilante talent which basically instantly makes whips a viable option for me in combat, it seems quite fitting for Cyrene's personality. Do people think that's fun or a bit... much? :)


Palace of Birdsong| Shards of Oberon map | War for the crown maps

I don't have a problem with that, but its a group decision.

You mean because it was a weapon historically used by slavers? I do not think there is any slave theme in the AP but I can understand why someone might feel bad about it.

From a mechanical perspective, having someone able to debuff enemies by using combat maneuvers at range, is a good addition to the party repertoire, and well welcomed from my side.

Actually mostly because I'm not trying to bring a full on dominatrix into the game. She already dresses and acts the part sometimes so I was worried walking around cracking a whip might have been pushing the whole thing too far. :)

It's just a tool. Depends on what you do with that. If you're concerned you may be taking it too far, you probably are. It hasn't happened yet, in my opinion.

As an FYI there's a whole bunch of benefits you'll see later if you manage to fully influence these NPCs. Right now you're doing a fine job although the tourney will be starting soon.

Baron Okerra has been fully influenced and is now friendly. His help will no doubt become invaluable in part 2 of this book later on.

Note he's a stickler for the law and there some things you might do later on that you should keep from him.

Not much time today for posting, but how does more or less the tournament work?

Don't think I am very interested in jousting, but Lope is definitely good at riding a horse. If this can gain a benefit to the party, I will do.

This competition is always awkward unless someone has gone full on chivalric knight. Cyrene would be decent thanks to her high dex, but the last thing she wants is to wear the armour and carry the shield and she has no ranks in ride, which immediately puts her at a disadvantage.

Something about this AP seems to attract high dex/cha dandies!

Listening to Cyrene, I do not see Lope dressing a heavy armor and charging in a horse with a lance :P

So, if possible, I will pass out this chance and just enjoy the soiree embellishing the conversation with the ladies and dandies.

Well that's something of a relief. Between Bartelby's +15 to Intimidate and trucco I thought we might be in way over our heads.

I admit to doing a little metagaming here. I had a post written and deleted it pending the outcome of other player's actions. This seems like the pivotal moment in the book.

The easy way to defeat this beast is with a glitterdust or some other spell that targets her Will. A chance for Valeria and Julia to be the stars here.

Barring that, we can try to use whatever we have for range combat (a chance for that crossbow artifact to shine). Some lucky alchemist fires here can be helpful if you really have nothing else to attack a flying creature.

A tanglefoot bag could be specially useful here to force her down, but I did not thought to buy one of those for Lope :P

So the Iron Lash just did 20 damage to poor Julia. That's not great, but it's blind and it got lucky with the rolls.

On the other hand for those with sneak attack, blindness mean it's denied dexterity.

Oof. Well at least I actually managed to blind it. Figured that would be a long shot.

I wonder if we're doing this all wrong. The manticore isn't moving but is content to kill us with its spikes, and we're playing right into that. Triphylla is still 5 move actions away at current pace. Would we be better off with full defense actions and waiting for the thing to exhaust its tail spike attack and come to us? The way its playing out, whoever gets there first will just be the first to die to claw and bite attacks.

I'll be honest, I think we could very easily justify sacrificing Moffis here - I don't think any of us is lawful good.

You can always take the run full round action if you need to be closer to the manticore for Triphylla to do her thing.
