Should we cross out the gems on the sheet then? That's what had me confused. All the other items that had been distributed were crossed out except the gems.

"Not into toys? I got some cheese. You look like you could use some cheese."

Merry pulls out a well nibbled hunk of cheese you remember him gnawing on before.

"And some bread. You hungry? Come on. It's safe. You can come out."

He talks like he is trying to coax a half wild animal out from hiding.

Alright, so, to make it official:

***EVERYONE receives 203.33gp, as their share of party loot***

So is that from the gems on the spreadsheet or just loose coinage?

Also, for RP purposes did the party get some sleep or did they set off for the warehouse immediately following the meal? I need to know if I'm playing a cranky character or a happy character.

Merry gives the gnome a dubious look, wondering where his energy comes from and hoping a stack of pancakes calm him down.

"Say, guard people. Do you happen to know of a Denny's near by?"

Assuming they indulge Merry, he gets out of his armor to make room and orders the grand delux breakfast with OJ and, just in case the gnome is serious, coffee.

Whether the following morning or that night, we all head towards the warehouse. Don't want to bog down the thread with too much about midnight breakfasts and comfy pillows.

"Shopping? In the morning, right? After breakfast? Please don't tell me you want to go roaming about the city in the middle of the night rousting shopkeepers from their sleep to buy potions we don't need. Paaancaakes, sauuusage. Mmmm. A guys GOT to eat. Say, is there a Denny's (or game world equivalent) open near here? Maybe we DON'T have to wait!"

Merry looks positively disturbed at the idea that they are going to just ignore all that money, or worse, waste it on adventuring gear.

No help here. Merry doesn't even know that 'sense motive' is a thing.

Merry rubs his eyes. "Say, what time is it anyway? Don't any of you ever sleep? You think we can get some shut eye first and maybe a nice big breakfast with all that money we got? Um, speaking of money, I don't suppose there was a reward on that fellow?"

A silver weapon would be nice. Just in case. But if you give him any money he will just blow it on the good life. So I think for now I will forgo. When we have enough money a priority will be to get him a breastplate. Even better we should get a wand of CLW ASAP. Until then, you guys keep all the money safe from him. As for a CLW potion that sounds like a good idea. I'll add it to his inventory.

"Aha! So this scoundrel is a known criminal, is he! I just knew it, probably dabbles in all kinds of criminal activity besides slavery."

...

"Tower girls, huh? Are they dangerous, or nice. I prefer nice girls myself, ones that can cook. Do they cook?"

Merry is a bit hungry and his mind starts to wander to thoughts of food. Then he remembers the picnic vittles he packed away and pulls out some cheese. He rather hopes they can cook.

"I just thought there were no Nidelese slavers. Or at least not here. Maybe somewhere else? And Aespice aren't slavers? What about Pathfinder Chronicle... I forget what number, but Aspice are DEFINITELY slavers. And since you are Aspice, logically, you are a slaver too!"

Merry announces this triumphantly.

"Wait, what? We're not going to take him to jail? Even though he is a slaver?"

"Wait. Aspice?"

Remembering the Pathfinder Chronicles he's read, he knows that the Aspice are recurring villains.

"You were going to SELL us to THEM."

Merry is definitely awake now and looking none too pleased.

"Sell OUR freedom! You are SO going to jail. After you tell us where these slavers are."

Merry is about to open his big mouth and ask what the heck they are talking about, but the dialog moves far to fast for his sluggish brain and the ruse is already successful before Merry can interfere. Hearing the word 'ambush' he goes and waits by the front door ready for trouble while the others talk some more. He is still yawning vigorously but not quite as frequently.

Merry is still waking up. He squints at the window trying to make something, anything, out.

Merry give Blaze a groggy incomprehension look and tries unsuccessfully to get to his feet a few times. Sleeping in scale mail is not recommended. And his feet fell asleep too because of the uncomfortable position he wait in.

Through blinking eyes, he asks, "Are they here now?" before realizing Blaze is no longer there.

"Huh?"

"A pity it is abandoned. I think it is high time we used some of that gold for something useful. Using a few coins to help us blend in at a tavern - a pint or two and some decent grub. Sigh. Instead we will have to settle for a sleepless stake out. Oh well, where should we set up?"

Merry looks around for a good spot to watch from, somewhere comfortable inside the tavern. Perhaps behind the bar where he can sit down and lean up against something that will allow him to snooze.

Merry tries his best to follow everything the man says, and starts writing down names and places as he was taught in Pathfinder school, but his writing is slow and sloppy and he looks a bit concerned that he did not catch everything.

"It's so tough to write and listen at the same time. Did you guys get all that?"

Huh!? There's more?

He waits there like a hovering raptor with his pointy pencil poised to take down the additional information.

"Yea, for that much gold we could hire a vertiable army of urchins to scour the city for us. For 50 gold, I could retire and forget even finding this person. Wy in the world do you think this information is worth 50 gold! Why, I've seen houses that cost less. In fact, why don't we try the whole urchin thing first? I kind of like the idea of sreading the wealth instead of making the rich even richer."

Subtlety is completely lost on Merry.

"Wait, I thought we were here to ask about Natalya. I wouldn't know WHAT to do with secrets of the Multiverse? Why are we buying weird secrets? I don't suppose you could tell us about Natalya too for all that gold?"

Merry is visibly shocked when the money is tossed out there like it is no more than a bag of apples. And the 500 gp reward per missing citizen has his head spinning. In his experience too good to be true is always too good to be true.

What's the catch, I wonder?

"Well, no gear needed yet. Unless we succeed, I don't want to be owing anyone anything more than I need to. So we have this Amazing guy or the Arvensoar as leads. You guys seem to like following up with the Amazing fellow first and I'm fine with that. We should grab a picnic lunch before we go though. I know of a really nice place in the park we can eat and take a nap at."

"Scarsy? They the ones all about making money off the little guy? Never liked them. Seems to me they should be taxed more and the money given to folks that need it like me. Too bad we can't just vote for someone that will take from the rich and give to the poor. Like in Galt! Though I hear that did not go so well for folks. Government should take care of its people."

I've decided that Merry is a socialist. L/G with good intentions that believes that government should control the economy and make sure everyone has a fair share.

Merry is a bit disappointed that none of the money was sent his way, but he is still hopeful that he will get his fair share. Or there will be hell to pay!

1000 gold! Divided by 5 is... Oh dang it, I hope I'm not cheated again. Too many zeros for me to figure out.

"OK boss! We're on it. I'll check the bars."

Merry checks his pouch wondering if he should ask for an advance. 2 gp and some change doesn't go a long way in a bar, even if you AREN'T trying to get information.

Ah the library. Can't say I've been in here yet. Has it been locked or did I just not care? Probablynever tried.

Merry smiles when he is called careless and lazy as if paid a big compliment.

"Never saw any use in schooling myself either. Good choice. This is going to be so much fun. A mission! A real, honest to goodness, pathfinder mission!"

A dishevelled man with brown hair, bushy mustache, and the beginnings of a beard walks slowly into the room. He wears scale mail extremely loosely fastened that sways as he walks and has pastry cream plastered into one side of his mustache. After yawning and stretching, he says "Whaaa? Missed that."

Out of bleery eyes he peers at the note and then, at the others. He is obviously clueless and missed the reading of the letter.

"Is this the right place. Some servant woke me up and said 'my presense was requested by the lord of the manor'."

Merry rubs his face and finds the pastry cream. With delight he sets to with gusto cleaning it with his tongue. Suddenly he stops his tongue action and says, "Wait! Is this a mission?!"

He looks around desperately and dashes from the room. About 10 minutes later he reappears with a scimitar and spiked shield and his helmet on, looking all proud of himself.

Merry is ready. He is probably lounging around Heidmarch manor taking FULL advantage of the hospitality as he often does. I would not be surprised if the Heidmarchs find a mission for him to go on soon. Ah, this is the life. Short operiods of satisfying adventure and excitement followed by extended periods of rest, relaxation, and indulgence. Oooohhh! Is that a chocolate Eclaire he sees?

Merry will tackle intimidate next level as he has a +2 trait bonus in that. Other than that I expect he will learn some physical skills but don't expect much more than a +6 out of him in the best of cases. If it involves int or wisdom forget it, particularly knowledge skills. I embraced the concept of his being a worshipper of a god of ignorance and stupidity.

Either way is fine with me. It just seems like it might be 'fun' to have a pair of rowdy Cayden religious types running amok leaving the others to play damage control. Also gives a good excuse for the pathetic social skill rolls he will probably have with all of 2 skill points per level.

Core does allow you to pick any deity, right? I'm thinking a Paladin of Ghenshau (ignorance, placidity, and simplicity) if Cayden is not acceptable.

Reporting for duty. Thank you so much for the opportunity to play in an AP.

I hear you need a front liner. If so, I will play a Paladin. Oddly enough I have not played one yet.

I just got this so I'll need a little time to put together the character. Could I get a list of the other chracters and who they are? It might be fun to play a Paladin of Cayden to go with our cleric. Could even be related.
