Yep, listing on the chronicle is fine. Now that Tycho is level 4 they can reroll failed SR checks but the essence is still a useful item for when you REALLY need to beat SR.

Happy to chip in on the death wards. they were worth it.

I agree with Melody: listing on the chronicle sheet would be great.

"Mayor Kurigoss" walks into the jail, scowling at Gereno. You caused the crazy, you stay for the crazy! As mayor, I decree that you must remain in your cell! He walks out, leaving the poisoner behind bars.

Abtaroh also visits Abtaroh, keeping an eye on the cultist and checking to make sure she cannot escape. Confusion is had.

In the hot afternoons, Prospector Pearl Hart takes off her ten-gallon hat and hammers on the side of Dalvis's inn, helping to repair the damage Nalan did. From atop the ladder she hocks some chew into a spittoon far below, causing the metal to ring.

Dogcatcher Vonner Flay patrols Dustpawn in the mornings and at dusk; his badge shining and his animal control pole at the ready, ever wary for creatures running amok. The vigilante illegally deputizes several citizens over the coming days.

Admiral Drace visits Captain Zorriah in his cell. He absentmindedly polishes the vrocket wings on his lapel as he talks. So, Zorriah. To my chagrin, it may well be that you are beyond the reach of Lirgen's Admiralty, and escape court-martial. Where will you go now? Will you turn to piracy?

Tycho will delay if possible, didn't see Mongo is confusion-locked on Emissary. If not, well… sometimes it's confusing to know whose side they're on anyway.

The dog leash continues to ineffectually twirl about in the air next to the stray.

attack: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (14) + 12 = 26
SR, spell pen: 1d20 + 8 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 8 + 2 = 15

Flay pulls out a scroll and pretends to read from it. By the power vested in me by the citizens of Dustpawn, I hereby deputize Mongo DePon as junior dog catcher!

The dogcatcher casts Calm Emotions off the scroll, directing the burst to the space just above Mongo's head.

Vonner Flay looks up at the Emissary, his badge shining like a beacon of law and order. He whistles a dog-call again before casting a spell. A bladed scarf that's shaped suspiciously like a leash slashes at the Emissary.

spiritual weapon: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (18) + 12 = 30

will vs. compulsion, heroism: 1d20 + 16 + 2 ⇒ (17) + 16 + 2 = 35

Perspicacity and persistence are Vonner Flay's watchwords! Here comes the Law, Emissary, inevitable as the tide.

Flay moves to the end of the bridge (being careful not to step off), and readies to cast Prayer the moment an enemy comes into line of effect.

SR check if needed; Spell Penetration: 1d20 + 8 + 2 ⇒ (15) + 8 + 2 = 25

Vonner Flay creates a 50' moonlight bridge that starts at his feet and ends at the inn's roof.

Not sure how tall the roof is there on the lower part of the slope where the bridge touches but if it's 20' high they can make it with a 50' bridge.

Flay then walks up the slope, whistling "come here."

Vonner Flay looks at the puppy and shouts at it. Your master, pup, is another unlicensed stray. But there’s no hiding from Vonner Flay!

He pulls out an oil daylight and smears it across his hat’s badge, which now shines like a burst of sunlight! Flay 5-foot steps forward, even more proud of his office than usual, as he seeks his quarry.

Vonner Flay pulls out his scroll of Death Ward and activates it. He looks down at the impounded puppy and whispers: Here comes your master!

On the way back, Abtaroh ducks into an alleyway.

Out comes Officer Vonner Flay, Dustpawn's most diabolical dog catcher! He wears his uniform proudly: tan overalls, muddy boots, and a mountie hat looped with gold-threaded trooper cords and emblazoned with a shining, shield-shaped crest upon the front that proudly says OFFICER -- ANIMAL CONTROL

He carries a rope, ready to loop it around the puppy's neck and tie it to a post, if given the opportunity.

Neither rain nor shine nor emissary can stop Vonner Flay, pup! There is no escape!

Abtaroh raises the very stone from the street, blocking off the dog's route of escape! Since we're in theater of the mind, not sure I can do this. I want to try to box in the dog so we can catch up.

Abtaroh pulls out her scroll of Death Ward and casts mirror image.

Tycho changes into Abtaroh, and places all of the unused orbs in her haversack. She hands Mongo the orb of Align Weapon in case he needs it. I updated whose got what in the player docs and in the discussion.

She uses a wand of Longstrider and Heightened awareness upon herself before skulking behind a bush, muttering to herself.

Abtaroh will use heightened awareness to add +4 to initiative if it's still up when the Emissary comes. Not sure how reasonable a 10-minute window here is.

Is there a sense we can get of where the emissary will land? I'm just wondering how this might shake out from our PCs point of view: are we expecting the Emissary to land at a random place in town, and we'll have to run and find it? Or will we be able to wait/ambush its landing spot?

I will take that Searing Light orb.

assuming we have some hours before the emissary gets here. I'm not sure what else there is to do; Abtaroh seems like the only loose end.

Drace asks around for Abtaroh again, once again hoping to find someone whose heard of the cleric's whereabouts.

How long ago did Nalan fall ill? Was it fewer than ten days?

We can go get a remove curse scroll from the leather store or something and cure Nalan, while we wait for the emissary…

Admiral Drace pops his tricorn'd head around Tim's shoulder and chucks a stolen packet of sugar at Nalan… it explodes in a cloud of pale crystals around the giant's head, threatening to blind him.

Shadow conjuration: Glitterdust. DC 24 will to disbelieve, then a DC 24 will to not be blinded. If Nalan makes the initial disbelieve save, there's still a 20% chance quasi-real glitter affects him, and might still blind him (meaning, he must still make the will save not to be blinded).

The hasted Drace moves back through the common room, tricorn bouncing and epaulets flying. I think a double move of 80' should just get Drace just out the front doors, unless there's a crowd inside? Regardless of where Tycho ends up, they will attempt general crowd control.

Drace musters all his years of military training (0), and takes command to reassure the noncombatants. Breakfasting Citizens: Giant Nalan skipped the continental, and has exited the structure. Remain calm!

The admiral has his doubts, as "swelling body" isn't on the list of any animal attribute he knows, except for pufferfish.

Only one way to find out! The Admiral heads upstairs. The Admiral will wait for someone to open the door.

I am the albatross, around the wizard's neck. I'm sure Zorriah is off somewhere, enjoying his delusions before getting court-martialed. Let the man have his illusions.

Admiral Drace sharply salutes his compatriots and takes a seat.

He watches Dalviss break up the fight with a look of revulsion. If discipline is the bridge between goal and achievement, then we are doomed to failure. He takes a bite of flapjack and smiles. Well, at least Leeara's on KP duty.

The end of our campaign is in sight. What is the plan for engaging the Enemy? We have good defensive measures in place, but Dustpawn is a rather large field of battle, and leaves the Emissary with room for many maneuvers. Where, exactly, will our Enemy will land?

Pearl holds up 3 fingers.

Per conversation in Hangouts, we can have 4 deathwards already covered: Tim can prep 1 (he will save a slot for a buff spell), Tycho owns a scroll already, and the sphere covers 2. That means 3 scrolls, assuming Tim wants Penny covered and we don't need Mango covered. 2100 gold. Mongo offered to pay for one out of pocket already, so 1400 GP. Happy to split the rest over the party if needed.

Pearl Hart points to the packet of powder and drops a mud-stained, rawhide pouch onto the counter. The gold inside clinks, but the prospector remains silent.

Borrowing against the scenario gold if that's OK. If not, this isn't an item tycho desperately needs.

Pearl hart puts hitches her thumbs in her belt and sighs. Can't say I'm surprised. Old Abtro's lower'n a snake's belly in a wagon rut, slicker'n butter'n a bac'n skillet.

She nods at the innkeep's question. Sure, we found what's been the cause'a these trials 'n tribulations. Turns out a whatchamacallit… some kinda cosmic horror what eats brains 'n souls… well, it's this cosmic horror's comin' callin' from beyon' them stars. It's hurtlin' hotter than blue blazes through the heavens above, aimed smack dab at Dustpawn! Should be landin' tomorrow, we reckon.

But don't you fret, we'll cream that Emissary's corn first thing in'th mornin.' Just need a good night's rest is all. Quite convenient it's landin' here, if you ask me. Old Pearl's ready to saw some logs, herself.

Tycho changes back into Pearl Hart, one of the forms Dalviss is familiar with.

She knocks the road dust out of her cattleman hat and approaches the inkeep, chewing on a twig. Howdy, Dalviss. Y'all got a message us?

The Admiral beams with approval. Good soldiers never ask why. He glances sidelong at Zorriah.

I'm sure there is sound reason for this, and we can find out by asking in town.

Tycho owns a scroll of death ward. They will use it on themselves. The sphere had 2 charges of Death Ward on it, as well.

The admiral collapses the orrery and puts it in his haversack. Outside he conjures a carriage to help transport Zorriah back to town.
