Zamp helps the party avoid the jagged shards in the eponymous cove, and sends electric arcs down into the deeps after sharks brush against the legs of the swimmers! He feints to help Helène punch them in the nose, driving them off.

At the docks, he assists Bardok in smoothing over negotiations with the bureaucrats and guards when they are almost exposed. He also bluffs his way out of a jam when Flitch almost blows their cover…

Below the rail of the Merry Mayfly he makes a rude gesture at the fascist city as the ship pulls out. I vow to never return to that place!

FWIW wrapping up this fast and in this way wasn't my ideal solution; I just wanted to try and finish before Gameday. I also want to again suggest the GM set expectations for style ahead of time (again, as you can see that there's a huge swath of player expectations and setting expectations may help you find a good fit).

Anyway, I'll get my post up later. Thanks for being understanding and working with the group! Your attention to detail in a complex scenario is extraordinary!

PbP Gamedays tend to run for around 2 months, and that's including specials; a 3.5-month special might have been due to a slower GM?

My own PbP scenarios tend to finish in about a month or less, but I am a faster-than-average PbP GM and will post multiple times a day when there's fun roleplay happening.

Everybody has their own pace and style, and it's good to note that on a GM expectations page since players' characters are effectively locked out of other games while they play with you — I'd consider doing that yourself, Rainzax. As you can see here, there is a variety of player expectations and opinions on what constitutes a good run time.

That said, it would be worthwhile to keep player plans in mind and try to wrap up before Gameday IX on September 1st.

Think we can do that, GM Rainzax?

No modifications to the plan. For the sake of time, I will second a vote to put the giant in a cart when the other ship leaves on the next day. I believe the consensus as the family + Astrid. The ones who don't fit on the raft will swim (probably Astrid and Daffrid or her husband).

What's your name, friend? If you have a case, I think that, perhaps, we can help you. He looks at the lash marks. We may be pragmatists, but we're not cruel.

Dimplomacy to Make an Impression: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (18) + 7 = 25

To friends: I would not see a creature mistreated so, and Valais would laud saving this person. We should get them out. And perhaps a stone giant could be useful to have along on the way to the Rolanna’s Prayer…

I'm confused. We have a 3-man boat. How are we sending so many people aboard it, even in shifts. We'll need at least one Pathfinder on each trip, no?

I believe the others are swimming. We could not craft more boats because we failed so hard. But the boat can accommodate 5.

Are stone giants around here usually evil or hostile?

I agree, let's get the kids, the guard, and Flitch out first.

Zamp shakes his head at the idea of separating Daffrid and her husband from their children. Helène, Bardok… is Daffrid's family willing to be separated? Are she and her husband willing to leave their children in the care of strangers for days on end? Splitting up a family for what could be days or even weeks between here and Absalom is likely to do more harm than good. It will undermine our cause: distraught parents are more difficult to slip by guards, as are crying children who won't listen to strangers.

Zamp is not willing to separate families unless we absolutely need to. I vote the four of them go on the boat at dawn.
----

1) Post a Description on how you will Contribute.
Zamp uses his slippery nature, and his slippery mind, to help!

2) Identify which NPCs are part of your Contribution to The Plan.
Zamp will suggest taking Daffrid's family of four (Daffrid, Husband, 2 children) and Astrid on Rolanna’s Prayer first.

Then, wait for the Merry Mayfly on day 5 with the rest.

Zamp will suggest will have Filtch help navigate there sewers this morning

3) Describe which portion of the City / Sewer / Dock you are Active for.
Zamp would prefer to be active for all parts.

4) Include a list of Resources you will use for your Contribution to The Plan.
Zamp will try to conceal the barrel raft and its passengers with items from the inn ("Towels, Linens, Room furnishings, Pickled fish...""), places inside the Wagon with 3 horses.

5) Choose two (different) Skills / Checks / Spells that represents the above Description and Considerations. The better the "fit" of the Skill / Check / Spell to the Description, the lower the DM sets the DC. Furthermore, you can earn a circumstance bonus to the check based on your Attention to Detail, scaled from +1 to +5.

Deception to distract attention awat from the raft: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (12) + 7 = 19

I'm confused about the plan here. I thought this was day 3 and we're trying to get up to 5 people to Rolanna's Prayer (the boat in the secret cove).

We don't get to go to the docks with the rest until day 5.

I am going to post my "plan" assuming this.


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

Zamp looks at the barrels too. We have no choice but to hope.


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

One moment.

Zamp goes to quickly wake the others.


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

Zamp peeks outside.

Zamp will try to craft more barrels!

Crafting (T): 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (8) + 4 = 12

Zamp flips the barrels over in frustration after 8 hours of fruitless labor, and gives up on the fruitless project altogether!

We've done terribly on crafting these rafts. I wouldn't mind another shot.


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

Please, work with us. We are the consummate professionals here and we know what's best. Even guards may be dissatisfied with the situation here.

Splitting my post in case I was off the mark and the previous scene wasn't needed.

Zamp smiles sadly at Xue. I agree; we should spend the night in the sewers with our clients. Unfortunately, we passed along a message for our client to meet us at the inn, and it seems they're ready to join — he shows his comrades the note — but I am worried our cover's blown. I'm very bothered by the killing we witnessed, and that we might be executed without trial like that person was if we're caught.

Confused here. It seems like one of our fellow PCs is about to be arrested in a place where we just witnessed the police enact what seems to be an extrajudicial killing. But it also looks like we're moving on to the next scene?

Zamp has had enough of this Kafkaesque bureaucracy. He makes his way quickly out, shouting at people as he goes to clear the way and create a distraction for Rose in the hopes she isn't arrested for whatever she did. Having witnessed what seems to be an extrajudicial killing by this fascist government, he is not inclined to stay here any longer — Guaril's client be damned.

MOVE! Do you know who I am? What's your badge number? etc, etc.

Perception (E): 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (18) + 6 = 24

Thievery (T): 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (19) + 6 = 25

"Humble Measure" drops a little paperwork and, hopefully without anyone noticing, picks up the crumpled piece of paper the guard dropped. He tries to flatten it out and read it as he sorts through his paperwork.


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

Zamp will wait and see what happens.

Pass on aiding; as a level 1 I'm never comfortable doing that as the chance of hurting the overall effort is too high and the chance of helping is relatively low.

if some other check is needed or will be helpful:
add whatever; socials are +7: 1d20 ⇒ 11

If there's a recruiting area, perhaps we can get in by pretending to be recruits who were recommended by Garrla.

Plan: pretend to be recruits and ask for Garrla; play it by ear.


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

Zamp already rolled his Gather info above (Failed)


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

Zamp saves the guard uniform and disguise kit for Rose, in case anything goes wrong.

Always have a backup plan. I hope she's okay in there!


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

Ahh, I thought you were flavoring your gathering info in that way.

Well., I'm not one to nix a player's creative ideas. I just would like us to be able to help one another if we get into trouble, or be able to back each other up if we fail checks in a skill-centric scenario. Teamwork.

Perhaps the rest of the party can be in the general area outside gathering info while Rose is in there also gathering info.

This would allow Rose to do her thing but keep us functioning as one unit:

1. Gather info together for 2 hours
2. Go inside together


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

Is Helene's canvassing happening while Rose is at the guardhouse? I thought we'd canvas first then go, not have a PC out looking for info while we're there already. As before Zamp would prefer not to split the party.

Gather Info to canvass if we are doing that before heading to the guardhouse:
Diplomacy (T): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

Scouting before the guard house sounds good to me!

Task 1
Zamp tries to help everyone back to the inn quietly, as its past curfew:
Deception(E): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (2) + 7 = 9

Task 2
He then tries to craft rafting from barrels…
Crafting (T): 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (8) + 4 = 12

Zamp wanted to look at Flitch's forged paperwork to see if its good quality.
Deception(T): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (6) + 7 = 13 Or Society at +4

Task 3
[ooc]I will follow the lead on whatever plan for tomorrow as I have GM'd this one.[ Same prep/exploration mode as before. /ooc]

Zamp shrugs. He believes that moving around bodies around in broad daylight in a city full of patrols is not wise but does his best to sneak them around. Sooner begun, sooner done.

"The Plan" check:
Stealth (T): 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (9) + 6 = 15

The next step:
Go to the inn before curfew — if we have time — and craft rafts. We already wasted a whole night on failing to craft barrels. If not, sleep in sewers.


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

I'm not sure leaving them here is so bad. Themolin legally owns this warehouse and they were trespassing. Further, he said there isn't much chance the authorities will be here soon. I hope we're gone by the time they wake up.

Also, I'd rather work on crafting rafts at the inn than sitting in the sewers with the rats.

Voting to leave them here rather than risk moving bodies and losing a night's work at the inn.

Crazy weekend and having a hard time catching up. Put in my vote and Zamp will follow the lead here.

Humble Measure shrugs. More arc at the last two left on the field… the accountant and assassin two.

Electric Arc, Basic Reflex Save DC 17: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

He then moves forward a bit, putting himself in range with the whip.

Zamp looks at the cluster of allies and delays.

All merchants the world over hate tax collectors, Barralbus!

Humble Measure incants a word and gestures at Barralbus and assassin one. Electricity jumps between them. Electric arc.

Basic Reflex Save DC 17: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (1) + 4 = 5

He then steeps forward.

Zamp moves up and readies an action to trip any enemy who comes within reach of his whip. 1-action Stride 2-action ready for a Reaction to Trip.

Trip Attempt:

Zamp strides twice and draws his whip.

Zamp climbs down them moves to the far end of the warehouse. CLimb, move 30' move 30'

Zamp will climb up on top of the crates and try to get a look around. (still avoiding notice but I would like to see if he can see anyone who's not hiding from where he is.)


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

Sorry to hear about that, Bardok :(

Zamp moves in too, avoiding notice now that he sees the lock was picked.


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

Zamp follows behind! He chose this spot and we can hope it's secure. Let's go in.

Not drawing a weapon. Don't think it's a good idea to walk into a clandestine meeting with weapons drawn.


Male Elf (Ancient) Rogue (Scoundrel) / Sorcerer (Draconic) 1 |Current Disguise: Humble Measure | 30' | HP: 14 | AC: 18 | Perc: +5 | F: +3 R: +8 W: +5 | Exploration: Avoid Notice | Hero Points: 0 | Trap Finding +6 | Weapon (whip) drawn

Zamp will Avoid Notice (changed in the byline) and draw his whip. He will depend on his Trap Finding ability to allow him to spot traps as he does so.

Token placed on slide!

Nothing for it but to go in.

Agreed. I'd rather just keep moving. It's not a big deal to me where we go next.

It seems traveling always can always take a couple of hours, so we risk missing curfew if we make 3 stops (inn to drop off the family, meeting, and back to the innputs us past curfew).

However, the inn seems like the most likely place to link back up with the full party, so let's do that anyway, keeping in mind that we should try to cut travel time as short as possible with this extra stop.

I think a good plan is to stow them at the Rockfish Inn. They might be able to find their way there?

We will meet you at the Rockfish Inn, and leave in a few days. Can you make it there? Tell Yuleg that we sent you. Zamp will make sure they know the party's names.

It might be near time to meet our accountant friend and link up back up with the rest of our party? Generally, I would prefer Bardok and/or Imiriax to always navigate since they have a +9/+8 bonus respectively…

As a player, I'd prefer to stop splitting the party at some point. We should wait there for you both at the college.

Also sorry for the delayed post. Not sure if anyone was waiting on Zamp.

Humbe Measure juggles some pieces of chalk. Be careful of calling them Prunelords. They don't like that! Do you know where your mother or father is? He leans in close, and whispers: By the way, have you ever seen a giant around here? Is he a friendly giant?

Zamp tries to identify the giant. Society (T): 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6

He waves at the creature and smiles. Hello there.

Diplomacy (T) to make an impression if needed: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15

Zamp nods at Dacian. We will be here at 9 a.m. sharp. On the way out, he suddenly stops and turns to Bardok as if just remembering something. Ahh. I've forgotten to tell you about an important development! We now have an appointment to discuss the export of these very same goods later today, at a new address. We should be off! He turns back to Dacian. Thank you, young man. We will see you tomorrow after our goods are secured.

Deception to pass secret message: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (11) + 7 = 18 Themolin actually wants to meet later today at a different location.

After the party leaves the Ministry of Tithes:
Zamp will show everyone the note, and suggest they meet Themolin at this address at 4 p.m. today.
