Arieys sits by Shadow and slips him some jerky from her rations after breakfast, giving him generous ear scratches and pats to help make his struggle with a bum leg a little more bearable. She could tell Shalewen was concerned about him, even if she didn't express it.
"Ha! The Harrow can only suggest a direction to go, Uncle Rokkad! It's up to the Harrower to decide whether to walk in that direction, and mine is to the Licktoad camp!" she says when she's done, standing up and riffling through her cards for show.
"We should be fine staying here. The spider's full, so it's probably going to sleep for now, and unless we deliberately provoke it, it won't attack us."
Arieys then looks at the items and riffles through her cards, a purplish-blue glow coming to her eyes.
Arieys casts detect magic.
She scans the items with her mystical sight, hoping to see secrets the others might have missed.
Spellcraft: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (1) + 9 = 10
That answers THAT question!
"Ikoma, hold on!" Arieys cries as she shoves her way towards the enlarged samurai.
She riffles through her cards and draws one with an armored figure standing resolute.
"Find strength in the resolve of The Paladin, and do not back down!" she cries as the card begins to glow with golden light. She touches the card to Ikoma's side and the glow spreads to him.
Arieys casts cure light wounds on Ikoma.
Cure Light Wounds: 1d8 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 2 = 7
Arieys' eyes widen as the angered undead shouts from beyond the cave.
"Tsutamu? Mitsuko, Ikoma, does that name sound familiar to you? Whatever this spirit is, it speaks the Tien tongue, and precious few speak it in Varisia outside your families, as far as I know..."
Arieys is in position on the map!
Arieys riffles through her cards before drawing one card in one hand and touching Ikoma with the other.
"Through the power of the Harrow I grant you the stature and strength of the Mountain Man!"
Ikoma finds the floor receding away from him as he nearly hits his head on the cave ceiling.
Arieys casts enlarge person on Ikoma.
I'm back, folks! BOY was that in interesting little vacation! I went to see the memorial plaque for E. Gary Gygax in Lake Geneva, and as it turns out, the resort I was staying at is where GaryCon was being held at! While we left before I could see the actual Con, I know it's there to go next year. And then we visited The House on the Rock, in all its weird glory. But now I'm back, and I'm posting! :D
