"Oooh! This place looks different!" squeals a noblewoman wearing a bright pink gown adorned with ruffles aplenty. Having just entered through the door following a white rabbit, she looks up for a moment to take in her surroundings.

Moved from Recruitment forum, but yes. Would be up for an all-Harsk game, though would prefer to play it at maximum table capacity. I prefer such adventures to be as Grimm as possible.

With the second outpost wrapping up I am spinning up this years:

Master of the Fallen Fortress of Whimsy

However I am offering two special versions of the table, if there is enough interest.

"Faster of the Mallen Whimstress of Flimsy?"

Gahlethea is suddenly reminded of a field trip she once had.

"Just, no monkeys, please! I won't go if there are monkeys." notes the woman. "I'd rather spend the day walking around inside this boring, old museum than face the possibility of running into monkeys. Say, when did it start getting so foggy in here, anyways?"

I was unaware that this scenario has an optional Harsk mode! Though, it brings no additional rewards, just extra challenge, it sounds like a lot of fun! Sign me up!

"Well... I suppose he could use a good NUMBER of baths." Gahlethea concedes. "Its too bad, really, that there is no running water at our new home out in the Caring Lands."

Still not sure why they call the place that. The blonde thinks. (They don't.) comes a reply.

"The place still needs a lot of work because that landlord, she really let the place go." the witch notes. "I'm starting to sort of wish now that you guys hadn't... you know... killed her and all." Gahlethea motions her finger across her neck, as if making a sign for death.

Okay, moved it.

"Silly, wizard." Gahlethea responds with a smile, "We weren't talking about YOU! We were talking about the foreigned-exstrange student, Bob. You, know, the one from the field trip that claimed all those lives."

Maria is interested and looking for work, having a LOT of experience with 'madness' recently.

Gahlethea is generally disinterested and never looking for work (although it sometimes seems to find her), having 'MADDENED' the experiences of the lot of them recently.

@ Maria - Hope you get into a great game. Gahlethea misses Elphie and her other roomies! Looking forward to a chance to play again soon!

The not-dying witch stirs and then slumps to one side in a fetal position, muttering something.

Fortitude save: 1d20 ⇒ 15

Gahlethea, entering from the stairwell, sees the arched ceilings and expansive chamber. “Oooooh,” she squeals, ”This is roomie. More like I imagined the Tower of Nex would be… though the décor could use a good bit of work. I got to hand it to you Professor, or should I pronounce it…” The witch adopts are more proper pose and an odd, nasal-lisp, her attempt to replicate what she perceives as Balenor’s accent. ”Prathfindor??... Just what nationality is that accent anyways?

Gahlethea begins to walk northeast. She sees the crocodile, gives it a wave, and decides that she would instead prefer to approach “Mother” from the southern direction. However, as she approaches “Mother”, the witch stops short once she almost becomes sickened by the creature’s odor.

”Thfo, “Mohthrer”…’” she begins to say with the nasal-lisp she had just adopted, before resuming her regular manner of speech, ”I mean, so “Mother”, I want to talk to you about the way that you have been handling your child here, Fin.” she says, pointing to the troglodyte. ”While it is admirable that you want him to receive an education, I question your judgment. It turns out to have been a very unwise decision indeed to entrust your child’s development and academic growth to the ‘Prathfindor’ here.” She briefly re-adopts the faux-accent while pointing at Balenor. ” Having been following this field trip, I have to admit that I haven’t seen much “educational” about it! Not one map. No words of explanation or enlightenment. The only ‘guidance’ from the ‘Prathfindor’…he’s the one prattling on over there about having ‘conference’ or ‘perspiration’ or something like that… was a way into the closet—and then, well, let’s just say he got stuck there.”

”And not only is the “Prathfindor” here not good at his job, allowing the student’s to just wander off, but it turns out that this place is downright….DANGEROUS! Bits of tower left to fall… dog leash laws left unobeyed… sensible decorating tips and good-taste left ignored… doors left wide-opened or unlocked! Why, just ANYBODY could walk in here with a weapon and just starting KILLING and LOOTING in this place without so much as a warning or hello!”

Furthermore, I think that there is a strong likelihood that the place could be harboring…*shutter*…. monkeys.”

”Now, what kind of a “Mother” would allow her child, or ANYONE, to go spend an hour or so in place like that? Huh? Does your child really need an ‘education’ like that?

And with that, Gahlethea’s lips begin to twist and distort to form words in a whisper that soon appears to be joined by ancient voices and percussive sounds other than her own.

Then, after a roll of her hips, she yells to the approaching troglodyte, “Hey, Tasskar! Leave them kids alone!”[/b]

Gahlethea casts ill omen on Tasskar. The next d20 roll it makes, it must roll twice and take the less favorable result. A target who can speak and has at least one free hand and who is aware of the spell and its effects (such as from a Spellcraft check to identify the spell as it is cast) can negate one reroll by spending a move action to utter a brief prayer or good luck charm to appease the spirits of ill fortune.

Gahlethea is pleased to see her two projects getting along. Oh, Elphie! Look at you taking it off! Getting all close-like with a student. Not my first choice, but I'm not one to judge (You TOTALLY are!)]

Once Maria puts on the slightly-bubble-covered armor, the witch notes, "Not much of an improvement. You'd probably just be better off draping that cloth with the burney bird thingie on it that we found earlier."

Thinking a bit more about the troglodyte and Maria and having witnessed the two speaking together in draconic, a pang of jealously seems to hit Gahlethea. Wanting to be the most attractive woman in the room, and now used to the stench, Gahlethea grabs the arm of the troglodyte and tries to make small talk. " zyak, kassil. visp ve throdenilt zahae dout dask, svabol jahus jacioniv ominak? kwi, veh, si 'to-ask-her' usv creolnali hefoc batobot. ilrigani, svabol tiric jaciv hefoc ekess tir ihk diwhaf? swing vi turalisj garurt usv lyrik sharp minben? rechan tijai? knit?"

Draconic:

"So, Fin. Tell me more about your mother, what was her name? Oh, yeah, you said, 'to-ask-her'or something like that. Anyways, what does she like to do for fun? Swing a big axe or other sharp item? Cast spells? Knit?"

The witch makes eyes and tries to look extremely interested in whatever the troglodyte has to say.

Speaking of the Pheonix tapestry, who has it, the shield, and other items that we found in the same room?

Gahlethea glances over towards the statue. Did I just spot wings on that thing? I hope its not... *shutter*... a monkey.

As she inches away from the statue, just in case, the witch notices for the first time that Balenar is not in chains. "Say, the Professor's out of the closet. Does this mean that we can get this field trip over with? This Tower of Nexus isn't as nearly impressive as I had been led to believe. That, and I'm out of soap." She gives Ba'hab a stern look.

"Huh." Gahlethea responds as The High Fool pulls his blade out of the frog's skull. "Good thing that wasn't your mother."

GM Gustavef wrote:
Ba'hab looks at the The High Fool.

Hearing Ba'hab's words, Gahlethea responds, "Just how many Mother-Fin Fin Mothers are there around here anyways?"

The witch takes the troglodyte aside, indignantly. "You don't want him to be your mother. His hideous skin-condition aside, he TOTALLY lacks fashion sense. Look at the way he dresses! Why I bet he’s wearing more bells than the Seven Towers of Desna’s Palace!”
She places one hand on her hip and wags her finger with the other. ”Which by the way must be like… let’s see, so… assuming one in each tower… and there’s seven towers… so then, that would be, what? ...one… two… three…almost there… like…. a LOT of bells!” She stamps her foot. Then, realizing that she had been speaking in Common, she adds, "VI SUMF di kilgi!"

Draconic:
"A LOT of bells!'

“THAT is your mother?!?” cries Gahlethea, pointing at the frog. "She's one BIG Fin Mother!"

"Somebody better tell her to lay off those morsels…She’s really let herself go.” The witch recalls what Bah’ab did with the soap that she gave him and vows to reduce his portions in the future.

Kill the eating, recites the blonde. I am pretty sure that is what Fin said. But what did he mean by that? (Isn’t it obvious?) Oh, it’s SO obvious! He’s using a euphemenolloquialism! [smaller]And I taught him that…. I’m so helpful! (Are you?)[smaller] ‘Kill the eating’ obviously means ‘curb the appetite’! (Really? That’s what you think?) He wants me to help his mom do some dieting. (I agree that there does seem to be a lot of excess weight around here!)

Gahlethea reaches for her flask of water but, as she has done in the past, she instead pulls out the vial of acid. She then moves forward to offer it to the "Mother Fin” frog. Double move

Gahlethea realizes that, with all the added items she has acquired that she is now rather encumbered. She shouts to Bah'ab. "Hey, Fin! Will you be a dear and please come and carry my stuff for me?"

Then, remembering that the troglodyte doesn't speak Common, she does what she has seen other visitors to foreign countries do when faced with a language barrier, she repeats her request again in Common, only LOUDER and more slllooooowllyyyyyyy, until the creature complies.

Ready to move on

Gahlethea carefully considers the troglodyte's words. Just kidding. She TOTALLY glosses over most of them.

He wants me to treat him like a mother. The witch ponders. If I’m going to do that I suppose I should take the time to learn his name. Buuuuuut… he DID use a lot of words. Which one must have been his name? Oh, yeah. I think I got it! (I don't think you do.)

"Hey guys!" Gahleteha shouts out to the rest of the party."I'm now one Fin Mother!"

She turns to Bah'ab. "Fin – now that we’re friends, I’ve decided to make you my new project.” She looks at the troglodyte for a moment, then shakes her head. “Oh, yeah. You still don’t speak Common, do you… poor thing… Well, that’s one of the first things that we’ve got to fix!”

”Well, okay, the second thing.” Gahlethea says as she reaches into her basket. ”This is for the first.” She says as she hands him a bar of soap.

Nevertheless, the troglodyte can tell something of what Gahlethea is communicating through her gestures and physical clues.

Gahlethea's speech for those who understand Common.

Gahlethea pokes at the unconscious troglodyte until it revives. ”Oh good, you’re awake. So, I heard about this field trip to the Tower of Nexus that you and your fellow students over there came here for.” She points to the dead bodies of the other troglodytes. ”As soon as we got here, we were attacked by dogs.” She growls and bears her teeth. “Then, once the puppies were… uh… put to sleep… That’s just a euphemenolloquialism for death.”[b] She draws a line with her finger across her neck, signing death. [b]“You do understand what an euphemenolloquialism is don’t you? I was trying to say that “put to sleep” is just a polite way to say ‘death’.” She signs death with her finger again across her neck a second time. “I know that its just a euphemenolloquialism for death.” She signs death again across her neck a third time. “But do you know that its just a euphemenolloquialism for death?” She draws a line with her finger across the neck of the troglodyte, again as a sign for “death”.

“Anyways, not long after that, I thought I had grown a tail and was turning into a…. *shutter*… monkey! And I yelled, Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!” Gahleteha jumps to her feet, grabbing the seat of her gown as she screams. [b]”So, then we climbed up to the top of the tower here.” She opens the climber’s kit and pulls out a piece of rope ”We used rope to get to the top of the tower. It had to be tied first, kind of like…. kind of like….” She struggles to form the rope into a knot, but manages only a large loop at the end. ”Like this, I suppose.”

Well, anyways,” she continues, tossing the rope aside. ”Once at the top, we encountered a lizard, more stinky guys—but before I figured out that they must be students…” She points to the troglodyte corpses. “I discovered that they had been ‘put to sleep’.” She signs death again across her neck. ”Remember that euphemenolloquialism?” She signs death again across the troglodyte’s neck. ”So, then we encountered these hot students, well not hot like … you know… hot…” She purses her lips as if about to give a kiss. ”But hot like… ouch, hot… that’s enflammerated! … I am burning!... type-hot.” Gahlethea contorts her facial expression into one of immense pain and shakes her hand back-and-forth as if it were on fire.

So, remembering my manners, I offered them a morsel.” She opens up her basket and pulls out a tindertwig. ”Here, have a bite.” She places it into the troglodytes mouth, then pulls out a vial of brown liquid. ”Since they were hot, I offered them a drink.” She holds the flask over the troglodyte’s head. When a drop of the liquid falls on the troglodyte’s skin, she apologizes, ”Oops, wrong vial. It would be silly to use this on anyone.” She brandishes the bottle in front of troglodyte’s face before placing it on the ground. ”Then we came up the steps and met you guys.” She points to the corpses of the troglodytes. “And I thought that the janitor was the professor, but he actually turned out to have locked himself into the closet.” She grabs hold of both of the troglodyte’s wrists and squeezes them to imitate manacles. ”My friend, Elphie, is the acting janitor now!” She gives a friendly wave to Maria across the room. ”Anyways, as I was saying, the Professor locked himself up, cause, well... I think he is into some weird stuff. In this case, ‘stuff’ is another use of an euphemenolloquialism, like ‘put to sleep’ is. Remember ‘put to sleep’?” She makes the sign for “death” again across her own neck. “You got it now, right? ‘Put to sleep’?” She repeats the sign across the neck of the troglodyte.

The witch starts looking at the troglodyte, then has a revelation. “I bet you don’t understand a single word that I am saying, do you. Say, you look draconian.” She says picking up one of the troglodyte’s javelins and points at the troglodytes tail. “Maybe you’d understand me better if I spoke Draconian!”

Gahlethea then speaks in draconian Draconic.

Gahlethea pokes at the unconscious troglodyte until it revives. Though she speaks in common, her words most likely cannot be understood by the troglodyte (and most definitely make little sense to her comrades). Nevertheless, the troglodyte can tell something of what Gahlethea is communicating through her gestures and physical clues.

The witch first points to the dead bodies of the other troglodyte companions of her audience. She next growls and bears her teeth, before drawing a line with a finger across her neck in a manner resembling the common sign for “death”. She repeats this sign two more times across her neck, before then drawing the sign for “death” with her finger across the neck of the troglodyte.

The women next jumps to her feet, screams, and grabs the seat of gown. She reaches down into the climber’s kit and removes a piece of rope. After a few moments of manipulation, she forms a circle at the end of it, resembling a noose. She tosses the rope to the side.

Gahlethea again points to the corpses of the other troglodytes. She repeats the sign for “death” across her own neck and then again across that of the troglodyte. Next, she purses her lips, in a manner resembling a “kiss of death”. The witch’s face then contorts into an expression of immense pain and she waves her hand about rapidly, almost as if it were on fire.

The witch then reaches into her basket, first removing a tindertwig, which she promptly places into the troglodyte’s mouth, and then a vial of acid. She holds the vial of acid over the head of the troglodyte and allows a small drop to fall on the troglodyte’s skin. She then waves the vial of acid in front of the troglodyte’s face, then points to the dead bodies of his companions.

Gahlethea next grabs hold of both of the troglodyte’s wrists and squeezes them. She next turns, gives a friendly wave to Maria, then once again signs “death” with her finger across her own neck before repeating it across the neck of her apparent prisoner.

Finally, Gahlethea asks in

Draconic:

“So, taking into account all that I have shown you and told you, don’t you agree that it is best to stop following the one who you thought was in charge – the one who you followed to this place--- and instead help us get everyone out of here? Otherwise, you too are almost certainly going to end up chained in a closet, if not worse. What do you think?’

Intimidate(DC 16): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (16) + 7 = 23

Factual Goal = Dissuade an NPC from working with an organization that directly opposes the Pathfinder Society or the Sovereign Court’s goals during an adventure by presenting the NPC with evidence that doing so is contrary to her interests. This requires a successful Bluff, Intimidate, Knowledge (local), or Sense Motive check with a DC equal to 15 + your character level.

Seemingly oblivious to the actions of the rabbit(as well as a whole LOT OF OTHER THINGS)Gahlethea heads back into the other room where the unconscious troglodyte still lies unconscious.

Then The High Fool Steps in and in a flourish finishes off the brute. It is really most sincerely dead.]

"I guess he didn't have tenure." says Gahlethea as she checks the creature's corpse for a pulse. When she finds the keys on the brute's corpse, she cries out. ”Oh!” she says, as if having a revelation. “He wasn’t the professor, he was clearly the janitor!”

Suddenly, she stops and starts to breath heavily as she looks around at the disheveled living quarters made worse so by the chaos of battle. ”But…” she says slowly, ”if he was the janitor…then….” She looks over at the other dead bodies and accompanying blood and gore. Who is going to clean up this place?” she asks in horror.

Attempting to straighten things up, she picks up the keys and begins rearranging items in the room, including those in the metal box. Unless someone stops her, the witch helps herself to the remaining items, including the scrolls, wayfinder, and climber's kit.

GM Gustavef wrote:
Opening the remaining door you find a human manacled to the wall. He looks up to you. "Are you from the Society? I am Balenar Forsend, agent of the Pathfinders. Please let me free!"

Relieved to find a human for a change, Gahlethea breathes a sigh of relief. We found him! The Professor was here all along! The witch thinks. Although, he does have a funny accent. He pronounced the word “Professors” more like “Pathfinders”. (He asked you a question.) Oh, yes, I was so excited that I forgot my manners for a second. (By my estimates, you have been without manners for must longer than tha….)

“Of course, we are from the Society.” she responds, cutting off any other thoughts and froofing her dress to make her gown look more presentable. ”We aren’t the Barbarians.” She looks at the manacles on the wall. ”Gee, Prof. You must be into some weird stuff.” Hmmm. Gahlethea ponders. I may have just recovered some blackmail or incriminating evidence against this guy. That’s a faction goal!

And that name “Forsend”, it sounds almost vulgar when you think about it. She pauses again, as if in thought. Oh, and what else did he say, again? “Please let me be”? An odd request, but then, if he doesn't want anyone to now about his activities, then I guess it makes sense.(Does it?) Okay, request granted!

Gahlethea gives Balenar a friendly wave. Then, she promptly shuts the door.

Sorry for my lack of clarity (made more unclear by attempts at comedy). Gahlethea, the PC, wants the fighting to stop as she wants to talk to the "Prof" and get him to conduct the field trip.

I, the player, expect the battle to go on without delay (one of the reasons I had Gahlethea actually do something helpful in combat). However, I am requesting that the party disarm/incapacitate the creature if possible, and keep it alive so that Gahlethea can try to use Intimidate.

I assume using Intimidate in the manner contemplated by the faction goal would have to be done out of rounds due to the time it requires (the Faction goal doesn't exactly follow RAW, so I am unclear if it requires only a standard action, like Intimidate to demoralize, or up to a minute, like Intimidate to change the opponent's attitude. Based on the goal, I am assuming the latter, though I could see either way.

Gahlethea rushes through the door after Maria. Move action.

"Elphie! That is no way to treat a professor! You can’t go around shooting faculty members with that thing!” the witch points to the bow.

"There will be no firing here!” she shouts. ”After all, this man likely has tenure!” Somewhere, a cymbal crashes.

The witch next turns her ire on the newer, larger troglodyte. ”And you, “Professor”, if that is indeed your REAL NAME…” She points her finger at the monster. "If you’re going to be swinging that stick around, you had better not hurt MY roommate… or... those... other people back there... I suppose."

The witch glares at him intently.

Gahlethea uses her Evil Eye (Su) hex on the newer, larger troglodyte. With a successful Will save (DC 16), the newer, larger troglodyte takes a –2 penalty to Attack rolls for 1 round. Otherwise, it takes a -2 penalty to Attack Rolls for 7 rounds. This is a mind-affecting effect.

@ all PCs - I wouldn’t mind an opportunity to try and sneak in the completion of a faction goal next round = Intimidate (DC 16) to dissuade an NPC from working with an organization that directly opposes the Pathfinder Society by presenting the NPC with evidence that doing so is contrary to their interests. If it doesn’t work, then I am fine with “terminating" the "Professor”- tenured or not.

She rolls her eyes and adds sarcastically, "that must be the teacher then."

Professor Chemy! Elphie must be right! I mean, she is usually right about most things.... except for choices of fashion... oh, yeah, and that dreadful hairstyle... and, then, there was also when she went into the secret monkey room...boy, that turned out to be a bad idea...

Turning to the nearest troglodyte, she says, "You students had better ... *spit*... put down your weapons and help us find Professor Chemy... *spit*... NOW! Or else my companions here will make sure that you FAIL this class or, possibly even... *spit* *spit* *spit*... die."

She looks over at her companions, then asks, ”Wait! Where’s Bubbles? What about Bub?”

Rest of prior post was eaten by boards.

I'm lucky to be alive! I guess I was able to narrowly avoid the monkpocalypse! Gahlethea exhales. I hope the others get here soon so we can resume looking for Professor Chemy. Maybe if I am sort of quiet-ish, I could hear him. Oh, I do hope I can! Tears begin to fall down her cheek.

The miss cries and struggles to hear.
Yet, misses the cries of struggling here.

YES! Gahlethea would be all over that adventure!

Gahlethea would offer the orc a morsel, but then...:

Kill the orc and take his pie. Unless the orc was wearing a monkey suit--or perhaps a batsuit, a Batman costume, a Little League uniform, or anything with a bat on it really, then she'd run to the stairwell yelling, "MONKEYS!" even before the orc took flight.

I've played Mists as well. Not sure which low-level adventures I haven't played, although virtually anything from season 8 or 9 would be safe, but we could always just do another evergreen.

Agree with a preference for evergreens/quests for continuing whimsy adventures as well as more action/dungeon-crawl like adventures as I think that they provide more room in PFS for players and the GM to include comedic elements.

If I continue to play Gahlethea the way I have been, she will make completing any adventure that relies upon uncovering lore, partaking in complex social webs, or solving a mystery quite difficult.

Oops. I mistakenly read the flight thing into it.

RETCON TIME

Upon hearing the screeches of the bats and sounds similar to... *shudder*... climbing on the room's ceiling, Gahlethea becomes paralyzed with fear. "That sound can mean only one thing..." she shutters, then shouts. "MONKEYS!"

Then, she races past the others and into the stairwell.

"Don't expect the others to provide any clean-up magic or non-diseasery stuff. I've been asking for some for some time." she laments looking down at her soiled gown. "But no one seems to have any." she laments further still.

She stows away the flask she had offered to the skeletons. As she is going through her belongings, she asks McCaliste. ”Would you like a morsel to eat?”

Gahlethea examines the remains of the two skeletons.

Heal check (untrained): 1d20 - 2 ⇒ (6) - 2 = 4

"Admittedly, I'm no physician, but..." the witch says with all seriousness, her voice betraying a tinge of concern, "I don't think that either one of them is going to be well enough to make it back to school on their own."

She tries to revive one with a sip of water from her flask. Upon contact with the liquid, the skeletal remains begin to burn and vaporize almost immediately, causing the witch to cough and wave her hand in front of her face in an effort to disperse the sudden cloud.

"Definitely, not on their own." she deadpans.

Having reached a diagnosis based upon her observations coupled with the mountains of medical texts that line her father's study, of which she never bothered to read the spines, let alone crack open, Gahlethea decides to scour the room for any remaining "students" and, she figures, the professor that must have brought them here. That Al Chemy guy that Sparkely mentioned earlier, I believe.

Finding only some silver items and some parchment, she sits down for a moment and ponders. "Perhaps these two were the only students. But, where could the professor be?"

She starts looking around the room again.

Perception: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (6) + 1 = 7

"OOoooooh! Look at him go!" Galethea says to the others as McCalister dances (more or less) by. "Bubbles... it is Bubbles, isn't it?...didn't treat those poor students badly like the rest of you! Indeed,

a man with dance moves like that would make an excellent role model for any student! Teeheeheeheee!"

Galethea stares agape at the actions of The High Fool, Maria, and the others and their collective treatment of the "students". I never would have guessed there were SO many critics of higher education.

Then, the witch immediately stops having any further such thoughts, at least in a manner that omniscient readers can understand, so that she (and I) do not run the risk of violating any of the various prohibitions on these boards regarding the discussion of politics or other potentially controversial subjects. There is nothing else to see here. Please move onto the next post.

With a solid hit, Sparks shatters the skeleton as it falls down in pile of dust and ash.

Gahlethea looks on in horror as Sparks destroys the skeleton. "Sparkley! That is no way to treat a fellow student! Honestly, don't they teach you people manners in school?

You should be helping them! Not... not... turning them into dust or ash!" She makes her way over to the remaining "student". "This is how you should be treating them!" she cries as she holds out the flask in her hand for the "student" to drink.

Melee Attack(touch): 1d20 - 2 ⇒ (12) - 2 = 10

Sorry, if I messed up your shot, Bob. I had hoped that Gahlethea would have finished off the skeleton before you had to go. I tried to go for a funny finale for the undead and now my character's likely to get a flaming hit to her hit points, instead! *Sigh* I suppose that it is true what they say, "Dying (for PCs) is easy. Comedy is hard."
