[“garrion”]
Garrion: hello there
Garrion: i gave you ownership of token
Garrion: i already set it up too while i was sitting here
Garrion: it should be all set to go for you
Garrion: when you launch you should start on the Limbo map and it has your little arera with your token and a few other things that pertain to your character
Marillion: yup
Garrion: you will want to have the campaign window open under “Windows” on the title bar above
Marillion: i’m on a mac, how do i increase my memory file size?
Garrion: this gives you access to all the campaign macro buttons
Marillion: cool
Marillion: I have a huge mac so I can probably have everything open
Garrion: oh, no idea. did the box pop up for settings when you launched?
Marillion: nope
Garrion: maybe mac is automatic
Marillion: it just told me my memory use was low and that they would open it anyway
Garrion: you may want to refer to the MT forums or user guide for that stuff.
Garrion: i know nothing about macs
Garrion: one of our players is a MT developer so he can help you out if not fixed by tonight
Marillion: cool
Marillion: I have a ton of memory on this thing…. I wish it would auto-adust
Garrion: the macros you need to access most are at the top… attack, special (which is all your combat maneuver stuff like grapples), saves, concentration, skill checks, stat checks, and HP change
Garrion: the red actie mods button puls up a list of mods for different buffs and effects… so if the cleric casts bless you will apply it via that macro
Garrion: then it automatically gets computed into all your rolls
Marillion: garrion, can you get on a join.me meeting with me?
Garrion: the purple button above that is initiative when i call for it
Marillion: i’ll make you the presenter and you can just point at the things.
Marillion: my screen may look different than yours
Garrion: sure, do i just go to web site?
Marillion: yea, www.join.me
Marillion: i have to set it up though
Marillion: i’ll give you a code in just a second
Marillion: code: 739 759 754
Marillion: and my cell is 804 216 0055 if you want to give me a ring
Marillion: let me know when you can view my screen ok
Garrion: loading up now
Marillion: ok cool
Garrion: ok, i got ya
Marillion: i just started using this software (i was using gotomeeting) but this saves me 80/month
Marillion: let’s try to make you the presenter
Marillion: ok, you should get a pop up
Garrion: yeah, to download something
Marillion: oh yea, that’s just my cyber attack
Garrion: lol, not funny
Marillion: my cyber attack would envolve a baseball bat or a cup of coffee….
Marillion: that’s the exent of my computer knowlege
Garrion: ok, it just closed your screen and now i have a little icon
Marillion: i can see your screen
Marillion: what’s your phone number?
Garrion: yeah, but i can’t see your now
Marillion: that’s because you are the presenter
Garrion: it just closed your session when mine started
Marillion: you are now the presenter
Marillion: i will make myself the presenter again
Garrion: ahh
Marillion: ok, that should fix that
Marillion: hmmm
Marillion: i cannot share control of my mouse, but I can request share control of yours….
Garrion: ok, i got a seperate window now for you
Marillion: ok, did you want to be the presenter again?
Garrion: it doesn’t matter
Garrion: what did you want to present?
Marillion: i guess as long as we can share the same screen
Marillion: just an overview
Marillion: set up the macros and such
Marillion: i used this with you a LONG time ago
Garrion: ok, well you are alreeady set up so from here on out is is just editing that you need to do
Marillion: ok cool
Garrion: first off, select your token
Marillion: ok
Garrion: then go to macro called edit character
Garrion: now the problem with that is one in the editor you can’t type in the chat
Marillion: ok, i see the icon but you may not be able to view it
Marillion: ahh, just noticed that
Garrion: it should have popped up a box, but i can’t see it
Marillion: it did pop up a box
Marillion: but I think I have to show you my whole screen
Marillion: let’s try that
Garrion: from there, you select whatever item you wan to edit or add to
Marillion: did you already add all that stuff or do you need me to go do this now?
Garrion: the most common will be adding new weapons, adding eqipment so that you can apply their bonuses, or updating your core stats as you level up
Garrion: i already did it
Marillion: gold star GM award
Garrion: if you mouse over your token you should get a little popup that shows all your vital stats in a nutshell
Marillion: cool
Marillion: is this how hit points are tracked as well?
Marillion: and my wand uses?
Garrion: just make sure those always match up and you will be good
Marillion: ok cool
Garrion: wands can be tracked on your token notes
Marillion: i have a scratch sheet for my wands, if it’s ok i’ll use that then do a final update
Marillion: or not…
Marillion: either way
Garrion: if you doble click your token it will pop up the configuration for that
Marillion: ok, how do i roll dice
Garrion: you will see i already have stuff in there for you to track your Hero Points and current spells per day
Garrion: although, i don’t do spells per day, but it lets you know how many you have left
Marillion: where do I see spells I know and wand stuff
Marillion: ok cool
Marillion: do wizards have to memorize a spell after they use it?
Garrion: i do fast spell recoverery to keep the action going and reduce needless resting
Marillion: and please explain how my magic regen will work
Marillion: i did read it but was not 100% clear
Garrion: in a nut shell you meditate and you gain your level of spell slots back per hour
Marillion: sweet
Garrion: oops not slots, but levels
Marillion: so, 4 levels of a spell?
Marillion: 4 1 first , 2 first 1 second ect?
Marillion: i sense a magic missle storm brewing….
Garrion: so at level 4 you rest and houtr and you get a total of 4 spell levels back.. that can be split up any way you want as long as it does not exceed 4 levels
Marillion: ok, that makes complete sense
Marillion: ok, I don’t see my spells or wands on my icon
Marillion: i have them on my sheet, so no big deal
Marillion: but should I add them to my token?
Garrion: yes, refer to your sheet or the d20 site while in play for spell details
Marillion: and can i drop a second level spell for a first level?
Marillion: ok cool
Garrion casts Flaming Sphere on orc #1
Garrion: reflex save to negate
Marillion: oh yea, I know there was some typing required for certain actions..
Garrion: Marillion: Reflex Save: 5
+2 vs Enchantments, Immune to sleep (10/Fire)
Marillion: or are they handled vis the macro
Marillion: someone just ate a flaming sphere….
Garrion: then for damage you tupe the dice in brackets
Garrion: 8
Marillion: I can not see the macro because it just shows the results
Marillion: not the macro
Garrion: just type it in the shat
Marillion: sure, I just don’t know what the macro command is
Marillion: ((3d6+1))
Marillion: ((1d20))
Marillion: … not sure what the command is
Garrion: can you see me typing?
Marillion: no, not undless I make you the presenter
Garrion: ahh, make me presenter then
Marillion: just says "garrion is typing)
Marillion: ok
Garrion: ok, you will type it like this….. 14
Marillion: ok, i can see your screen now
Garrion: then when hit enter it does the roll
Marillion: 20
Garrion: ok, you will type it like this….. 13
Marillion: ok, got it that time
Garrion: you did curly brackets
Marillion: 20
Marillion: one more time…
Marillion: ok
Marillion: 20
Garrion: curly hides the components, open shows the components
Marillion: 20
Garrion: 1
Marillion: please type that one more time, it disapeard very quickly
Marillion: or, pull up the yahoo messenger
Marillion: 10 vs 4
Marillion: ok got it
Garrion: 17 vs 8
Marillion: ok, cool
Garrion: i like the open brackets because it lets me veryfy components of a roll
Marillion: [1d20+2}
Marillion: what about modifiers?
Garrion: you can’t mix and match
Marillion: typo
Garrion: you just type that in….
Marillion: 11
Marillion: 14
Garrion: 13
Marillion: can you see it when I type it in?
Marillion: looks like both of them hid the results
Marillion: 15
Garrion: i can’t see you typing but i can see the results
Marillion: 10
Garrion: by mousing over the roll
Marillion: ok cool
Marillion: i see
Marillion: 1018
Garrion: now you will do that rarely
Marillion: roll?
Garrion: most rolls are done via macro
Marillion: ok, you said I need to set that up right?
Garrion: select your token and click on the attack macro
Garrion: it pops up a bx for you to select multiple items and common combat options. on the seperate tab you select your target

Marillion: ok cool
Marillion: well, it seems i’m rolling pretty good
Marillion: maybe should have been a fighter?
Garrion: if you have a standard attack like say magic missile you can make an attack roller for that too
Garrion: but spells that don’t use attack rolls you will just type out or make a macro like this… folow me
Marillion: magic missle always hits
Marillion: ok cool
Marillion: and do i need to put my basic at b on my weapons?
Marillion casts a sphere of fire on you. Make a DC14 reflex save to negate.
Marillion: I did not see where you opened that
Marillion: i did see you type
Marillion: i think there was a lag
Garrion: it was in a seperate window so probably didn’t show
Marillion: oh
Garrion: just right click that macro and edit and you will see how i set it up
Marillion: on your presenter mode (center choice)
Marillion: makes sure it says “share screen” and not "share window)
Marillion: ok, probably just lag then
Marillion: I can see you typing to me before you send it
Garrion: yeah, it is on screen.. it is just like those other macro windows that don’t appear
Garrion: it will just take alittle practice but you’ll be off and running in no time
Garrion: the other guys will help guide you along too
Garrion: we remind each other of things regularly
Marillion: i’m sure it will not take long to catch up
Marillion: just happy to be back in the game (and working one job)
Garrion: if Vincent casts a buff spell he will remind everyone to apply it
Marillion: my little business is actually doing very well, hope it keeps up
Marillion: ok, so I would apply by clicking on my token?
Garrion: so what was my last game you played in. i couldn’t remember
Marillion: with you?
Garrion: you would select token and then go to this macro…..
Marillion: hmmm
Garrion: i can’t show you cause it is a popup that wil not appear
Garrion: but you click that and a list pops up that you select from
Marillion: I played “Griffin” the son of the master at arms. I think it was the riddle of steel, but I could only play a few games
Marillion: I really liked that system though
Marillion: still holding out for a Gurps one too
Marillion: never can find anyone that wants to play gurps
Marillion: I know you guys tried it out awhile back
Garrion: i knew you played riddle with me, wasn’t sure about any of my 3.5 or pathfinder games
Marillion: I did play pathfinder for a minute there now I think about it
Marillion: thormir, the fighter/cleric that was trained by a 1/2 orc
Garrion: i ran a gurps game for my local guys and i’m in one now on wednesday nights
Marillion: i think i only played a few games though
Marillion: lucky lucky lucky
Marillion: how do you like the system?
Garrion: i’m going to have to drop out though due to my new travelling job situation
Marillion: oh, just started doing that recently?
Garrion: it is a scifi cyberpunk sort of thing… like Deus Ex
Marillion: i saw your facebook that you do something with nuclear medicine?
Garrion: we are on our second mission
Garrion: yep, that is my profession
Marillion: tell them to move it on line and hold it on the tuesdays you are out of town
Marillion: i’ll sign up and we can make it a tuesday thing!
Marillion: that’s fantastic that you can quit your job and they follow you to hire you back
Marillion: what do you do exactly?
Garrion: i quit my job in AK when we moved here but they approached me a month ago abot doing a travel situation with one of my other coworkers up there… so i’ll be working 2 weeks on and 2 off… but will mkae more in an effective 6 months of work than i made in a whole year before
Marillion: sounds worh it to me
Marillion: ((i’m reading while you type by the way))
Garrion: yeah, i was doing the same when you hosted
Marillion: do you want me to call you Garrion or James anyway?
Marillion: I kind of know you as Garrion
Garrion: well real name is Shawn
Marillion: well, probably should not call you James
Garrion: haha
Garrion: nah, i probably wouldn’t answer
Marillion: that’s right, i’m getting the name mixed up with James Beggs (he was on my RPG list) (just the name, not the pic)
Garrion: in game most people refer to me as garrion or “G”
Marillion: if you ever make it out to VA, let me know
Garrion: in emails it is a mixture
Marillion: doesn’t look as nice as Alaska but it’s not too bad
Garrion: Garrion is my web alias that I use on all message boards and gaming stuff, but when i email people my real name is used by me email progrmas
Marillion: do you need some time to get ready? I know when I GM i always have a lot of last minute stuff
Marillion: and if you could asign my “home” and fathers home that would be cool too
Marillion: probably makes sense for my current home to be somewhere the adventures will be around
Garrion: well i was just making up tokens and stuff for the next book in the AP, i’m all caught up for what we need tonight though
Marillion: cool
Marillion: always nice to be caught up
Marillion: ever have any issues with people buying the campaign books?
Garrion: yeah, it is fine for it to be Eleder. and your father can be in the Spires too
Marillion: cool
Marillion: i’ll make a note of that
Garrion: they are straight north of your location, a good distance but a straight sail
Garrion: but have to sail through pirate infested waters and the eye of abendego
Marillion: i had a map at some point…
Garrion: that is an ever-present huricane, kind of like the red oey of jupiter
Marillion: do you know the site for the wiki map?
Garrion: yeah, one sec
Marillion: cool
Marillion: and it’s 5pm here, what time is it there now?
Marillion: 4?
Garrion: there is that one… but i like this other one better
Garrion: http://pathfinderwiki.com/wiki/Pathfinder_Wiki
Garrion: i also put all pertaining maps on OP
Marillion: yea, i saw those maps
Garrion: oh, and your cards
Marillion: hmmm i found a map that was like a special google maps
Garrion: you can see your cards in your character space
Marillion: it had the locations saved
Marillion casts a sphere of fire on you. Make a DC14 reflex save to negate.
Marillion: i need a higher charisma
Garrion: yep, why i suggested making it your high score, but i understand your reason to make wis high too since it dictates the highest level spell you can cast
Marillion: i cannot read that card
Garrion: just scroll in to zoom and the text will be readable
Marillion: ok
Marillion: have to scroll in
Marillion: what’s with the card?
Marillion: am i cursed or somethiing?
Garrion: those are your swashbuckling (B&W) and plot twist (color) cards
Garrion: no, you play those wheneer you choose and they would apply
Marillion: ok cool
Marillion: do i have 1 card or is there more?
Garrion: so for thw white one… on your turn you could play it as a free action to draw a weapon and make an intimidation roll with a +10 mod
Garrion: the other… the “target” is whoever you choose to play it on
Marillion: ok, and you get more cards for good roleplaying?
Marillion: can you have more than one at a time?
Garrion: refer to the site for full explanations, you can have up to 3 of the white ones and up to 5 of the color ones
Marillion: ok cool
Garrion: you also have a max of 3 hero points, but they continue to accumulate and the overall total helps out with your fame as a hero
Marillion: are hero points “spent”
Marillion: or they are more fame points?
Garrion: you get the plot twist (color) cards whenever you level, that is the only time
Garrion: the white ones are given frequently for various things addressed on the site
Marillion: this artwork on the pathfinder site is really good
Garrion: oh, just saw your email about yahoo
Marillion: yup, there it is
Marillion: ever tried d20 pro?
Marillion: looking at it now
Garrion: Neofax has, i asked the others about it when i was looking at other programs once
Marillion: graphics look great
Marillion: especially if you had a google desktop
Marillion: interactive screen
Garrion: it is nice and good for d20 games but not so much for other systems, plus it can get costly if you the GM and paying for lots of lisences for other people to be able to play without them paying for theirt own copy
Marillion: do you know how much it is?
Marillion: not bad at all
Garrion: mt does most of the things it does though and is free, so most people tem\nd to prefer this when they poor or just cheap
Marillion: i think it looks pretty fantastic gm + 2 players 30 bucsk, then 10 bucks a player
Marillion: i spent more on that on fantasy grounds and never used it
Garrion: MT basic is not that great, but with this framework it adds a lot of automation to the process so you don’t have to do everythig manually
Marillion: if it it’s not broke…
Garrion: nah, it is a good program for D&D/Pathfinder
Garrion: or any other d20 variant
Garrion: you can download it and do a trial before you buy
Garrion: i had considered ghetting it and switching but everyone is comfortable with MT and no real reason to change at this point
Marillion: let me know if you ever want to test it out
Garrion: the thing i like most abot MT and d20 pro that other programs don’t do is line of sight
Marillion: to see the gm/player features
Marillion: like fog of war?
Garrion: it is goofy but i like not having to unveil areas as the characters walk around, you just set up vision blocking and fog and the area is unveiled based on what each character can see
Marillion: sounds like a time saver
Marillion: ha ha
Garrion: if a wall is in the way then that area is blocked and the character can’t see what is beyond it
Marillion: the half orc says “i’m going to kill that goblin”, the human says “what goblin?”
Marillion: darkvision
Garrion: exactly
Marillion: this d20 software looks pretty bad ass
Garrion: yeah, like i said, i would use it if we weren’t already well established here on MT
Garrion: i may try it out a little more and switch once this camp over
Garrion: also in your character area you will notice a backpack and coins and a chest… this is for you to record what you have where, just update it as needed
Garrion: all things on this page are master copies, so when we start a combat map i will copy the tokens over to the combat but the originals will remain on this map
Garrion: after combat over i’ll carry those same tokens over to the next untill we out of all danger and you ahve time to rest and restore all effects, then most the time i delete the temporary ones
Garrion: so if you ever make any changes you want to be permanent and not have to redo (like a new weapon or new magic item that you are wearing) then you need to let me know so that i can replace the original token
Garrion: to access those items and edit their notes change the layer to object and then you can select them… i have them set up as objects instead of tokens
Garrion: well i’m goint o hop off here but will leave MT up for you to play with
Garrion: i need to go get dinner ready and wife and kids about to be home
Marillion: ok sounds good
Marillion: and i have my wands on my person (belt)
Garrion: yeah
Garrion: and for wands you can tck the charges in your charscter token notes
Marillion: ok cool
Marillion: what time is it there?
Taragnor has connected.
Garrion: 430
Garrion: hey taragnor
Marillion: cool
Garrion: let me give you ownership of your new token
Marillion: hi Taragnor, long time (this is Brice/thormir)
Garrion: ok, you should have ownership of all your things
Garrion: he was logging in to set up his new token so may not be able to respond while the dialog boxes are up
Taragnor says to the GMs: GM Status Updated. (The listed names are GMs.)
[“garrion”]
Garrion: you can chage your image to whatever you want too, i just put that one in asa placeholder
Marillion: how can I switch to scroll map?
Garrion: well i need to step away from the comp for a bit
Garrion: switch maps
Garrion: you go to the select map button on the top right of screen
Garrion: it will show you your options
Garrion: the treasure oit is our current map that we left off on.. Tabris just took a dive in with some frinedly creatures
Garrion: ok, stepping away for a bit….
Marillion: A way F rom K eyboard
Marillion: Back
Garrion: i guess the G can’t go AFK, hehe
Garrion: i guess the GM can’t go AFK, hehe
Taragnor: heh. well I t hink you need a token sleected for it.
Taragnor: Since it puts an AFK sign on the token
Marillion: what time do we start?
Garrion: 7 central
Garrion: so 2 hours
Garrion: he’s shoanti-ish looking
Bathas: HIT: 9 ( MW Ripsaw Glaive )
DMG: 11
Taragnor: heh okay cool.
Garrion: so did that fix your save values to be correct now?
Taragnor: yeah
Taragnor: they’re good now
Marillion: so, 8 my time then?
Garrion: yep
Taragnor: Is there any way to set my net to be a touch attack?
Garrion: yep, just set it as weapon but put touch in () with it
Garrion: that way i know it is touch when you use it
Taragnor: As part of the name? okay.
Garrion: yep Net (Touch)
Garrion: the only thing is that it doesn’t deal damage, so just set damage as 1d1 and i’ll ignore the 1 point it will always roll
Garrion: you will get an error if you leave damage blank
Bathas: HIT: 2 . . . FUMBLE! ( Net (touch) )
DMG: 1
Taragnor: yeah I put the damage to 0
Taragnor: but apparently it always defaults to 1
Bathas: HIT: 7 . . . FUMBLE! ( MW Ripsaw Glaive )
DMG: 13
Bathas: HIT: 28 . . . CRIT! —> 24 ( MW Ripsaw Glaive )
DMG: 7 . . . CRIT! —> 6 + 13
Taragnor: ok think he’s set up good.
Taragnor: oh, how did you want me to do my channeled spells?
Bathas: Die Roll (1d20): 6 Save: 4 Stat Bonus: 0 Save Bonus: 1 Temp Bonus: 0 TOTAL: 11 Bathas: Will Save: 11
+2 versus mind affecting
Garrion: a normal macro is fine
Garrion: just a personal macro on the token
Taragnor: ok
Bathas: Channeled Touch of Fatigue: Target must make fort save DC 11 or be fatigued for 4 rounds.
Bathas: Channeled Shocking Grasp: 16 electriciy damage
Bathas: Channeled Frigid Touch: 22 cold damage and target is staggered for 1 round. On a crit, target is staggered for 1 minute.
Garrion: ok, brice, i put on the new image you emailed me
Garrion: you can do this yourself any time you want.
Garrion: just dbl ckick the token and go to the config tab.. then drag any image you want to the appropriate place that has a little + on it

Tabris: Why does it say I’m grappled, all it did before was grab and pull me down, it has to beat my CMD to initiate a grapple
Garrion: if you want to just see what is going on i’ll put you there

[“garrion”]
Garrion: it did grapple you, it beat your CMD last session when it pulled you in

Tabris: Although it won’t let me delete it
Deenia Paydar whispers: I don’t own my card
Garrion: i have not given ownership yet.. let me get that taken care of
Taragnor: heh whats the card do?
Tabris: Seeing you stride up, guards will throw the door open, giving you access someplace they shouldn’t
Taragnor: heh wow.

Garrion: ok, looks like we all here and ready… when we left off last time Tabris had stuck his hand into the water at the bottom of the pit and suddenly he was yanked in
Garrion: you do not know what is up other than him yelling something
Vincent: ((haha, you gonna die soon))
Garrion: inits
Vincent: ((which map?))
Tabris says to the GMs: Tabris Initiative: 14.07
Tabris: The Treasure Pit
Garrion: treasure pit
Cedric says to the GMs: Vincent Initiative: 6.03
Deenia Paydar says to the GMs: Deenia Paydar Initiative: 12.06
Garrion: marillion is on the map just so he can observe, he is not there
Marillion: i’m scrying on you
Sachi: ((Damn I still haven’t loaded the map… This is weird))
Marillion: in my mind
Cedric: ((he looks very emo ))
Tabris: ((Nah he’s just goth))
Garrion: well i have had this up for a while and was doing some screen sharing with Brice… perhaps if i restart?
Marillion: mine is working great
Garrion: i’m not sure if it is on my end though since the others were ok
Sachi: I couldn’t load up limbo either :x
Tabris: Yeah I’m not having any problems so far
Sachi: I tried disconnecting and reconnecting but the same thing happened… Maybe if I restart maptool?
Garrion: you get other maps?
Sachi: Hmm, yeah
Sachi: I was able to load the campsite and Smuggler’s Shiv and the summoned critters map because I clicked it indiscriminately
Garrion: very odd
Sachi: But the treasure pit and Limbo both seem to hang up partway through :(
Garrion: well if you can see the pit then we are ok for now
Vincent: it a pretty simple map
Sachi: I can’t see it at all though
Tabris: Yeah Treasure Pit shouldn’t take long to load
Tabris: Does she have vision?
Vincent: it just tabris in a hole with 2 bad guys
Sachi: It’s at 10/12 loaded 10/12 cached and it hasn’t progressed in minutes
Garrion: yeah, it is just a tile with a little drawing on it
Sachi: I know it shouldn’t do that
Garrion: try scroll/zoom and see if it makes the portions appear, i notice i have to do that sometimes
Vincent: goto another map, maybe G can force you into it?
Deenia Paydar: (( Go to Window—→Show Transfer Window and type out the hashes for the two files ))
Taragnor: sometims if you just change the map back and forth a few times
Taragnor: it works
Taragnor: cause it loaded fine for me
Sachi: I tried that window and nothing’s in it
Sachi: I"m gonna restart MT
Sachi is disconnected.
Deenia Paydar: (( Once you do this, go to C:\~USER~\.maptool\assettcache and delete those files ))
Vincent: that’s usually the fix
Tabris: Yeah, when in doubt, restart
Garrion: ok, i’ll just roll for her and we’ll get started
Garrion says to the GMs: Satomi Initiative: 23.03

Satomi jumps up and down in place, waving her arms frantically.
Lynis: ((to the others) “there’s apparently ghouls in the hole…”))
Satomi: “Fucking ghouls in the fuck hole, he says!”
Marillion: lol
Satomi: “H-hidoi…”
Garrion: yes, with the swim check you kick up to the surface, but they are underwater. you can not reach the bottom
Tabris: Okay but can I swing at them
Tabris: And can I see them
Garrion: no, they are underwater, you can not see
Vincent: (( also this basically a straight shaft with nothing else in there, or there cave down there?))
Tabris: ((Haven’t found if it expands or not, it’s full of water))

Garrion: ok?
Lynis: ((Yeah if it’;s anything like 3E underwater combat… then you basically need some peircing weapon or you get scr3ewed over pretty bad))
Tabris: Gonna use “Don’t Look Now, But”
Tabris: Makes him Dex Denied against me
Tabris: So that should have hit
Vincent: ((or free action spell))
Garrion: ok, he is FF
Tabris: And I rolled a 12 and 54pct on the miss chance

Garrion: Lacedon:   -14 hitpoints!
Satomi has received initiative.
Vincent: nice shot
Tabris: Nice indeed
Tabris: Glad I remembered that card
Garrion: Satomi sees what is going on now and can act
Tabris yells a string of obscenities as he slices open one of the ghouls
Vincent: ((dude, now the water is all dirty))
Satomi: Is anyone trying to pull him up?
Garrion: it was nasty to begin with
Garrion: not yet, but they not had a chance to
Vincent: ((oh right, tabris was in there.. zing… ))
Tabris: lol
Satomi: And how deep are they in the pit?
Tabris: 40 ft
Vincent: ((he currently hanging onto the rope, or did we tie it to him?))

Garrion: takes full round
Tabris: ((I didn’t need any help with that, just with getting out of this pit))
Vincent grabs onto the rope as well and pulls.
Satomi: “Nani…?”
Lynis: ((Lets turn vincent into a turn undead depth charge!))
Satomi tilts her head quizzically
Vincent: Vincent Strength Check: 14
Tabris: ((I’m all for that))
Vincent: ((done))
Garrion: ((Well forcing him is not heroic.. but wiling would be very heroic. ))
Lynis: ((Hey even conscripts can get post-humous commendations for bravery))
Tabris: ((This is true))
Vincent: ((how much damge would it be to fall 40’ into water?))
Vincent: (( my guess would be not terribly much))
Garrion: Vincent tugs too, making their work a bit easier… he will gain another 5 ft
Garrion: i have an answer for that….
Vincent: ((well 10’ up, they can’t get ya anymore at least))
Tabris: ((Heh, unless they climb after me))
Vincent: ((hey, closer they come, easier it is for us to deal with em))
Garrion: you think landing in water would be non-lethal
Vincent: ((now to turn they have to see me right, not necessarily I have to see them right?))
Lynis: I’m pretty sure you don’t gotta see em, you just need line of effect
Tabris: Yeah
Lynis: Which goes through concealment, like cloudy water
Tabris: As long as you’re within range and nothing is blocking it
Lynis: It just doesnt breach a solid wall or soemthint
Tabris: Right
Garrion: hmm, i know we looked that up once before…
Lynis: It’s basically like fireballing a dark room.
Lynis: Even if you can’t see it, they still get burned.
Vincent: ((heh, you are making it alot more appealing now))
Vincent: ((but either way, am done for now))
Lacedon 1: Lacedon 1 Climb Check: 25
Lynis: ((I woulnd’ thave suggested it if there wasn’t at least a smal chance you’d survive.))
Garrion: the creature shoots up out of the water and up the side of the pit… and claws up ay tabris….
Tabris: Wait doesn’t that one only have a move action this round
Tabris: From its fumble?
Lynis: ((if you want to go for the double action awesome. you could jump on the ghoul’s head, then turn it as you force it back in the water))
Garrion: oh right
Garrion: ok, it just climbs up
Lynis: ((That’d be a cool picture. I’d imagine like your character landing on it and jamming your holy symbol in its mouth before turning it))
Tabris: ((lol))
Satomi: (( Ahaha ))
Tabris has received initiative.
Tabris: “Shit, I think it’s climbing up after me!”
Tabris takes a swipe at the creature with his sword
Tabris: ((Do I still have miss chance?))

Lynis: “Can you guys hold him there?”
Garrion: oh tab make a second fort save

Tabris has received initiative.
Lynis: ((I’ll take it if he can’t use it, the depth charge was my idea :P))
Garrion: ok, out of init.. but vincent needs a swim check
Vincent: ((do I go all the way to the bottom?))
Garrion: depends on the check
Vincent: Vincent Swim Check: 17
Vincent: nat 20, booya
Garrion: amazingly vincent surfaces and clings to the side of the wall
Vincent surfaces quickly and easily, working the bad ass card hard.
Lynis: “Wow that was awesome!”
Vincent: " all that yelling just for one?"
Tabris: “That was crazy man… But I do appreciate the assist.”
Tabris: “Hey there were two! I think I got one of ’em already.”
Tabris: “He should be floating around down there somewhere.”
Garrion: for future feference in water fights…. http://www.d20pfsrd.com/gamemastering/environment/wilderness/terrain/aquatic-terrain
Vincent will cast light on his armor and look around.
Tabris: “Anyway, nobody said anything about ghouls! Where the hell is Ishirou?! I want a bigger cut for having to put up with this bullshit!”
Garrion: hehe, i forgot to add himto the map
Marillion: Marillion is watching bad ass clearic TV on his crystal ball
Marillion: best realtiy show ever
Tabris casts Light on his Greatsword and starts descending back into the pit with Vincent, grumbling to himself rather crankily…
Lynis: ((Yeah, it’s like the Pathfinder world version of Lost))
Garrion: swim check
Vincent: (( hey, I"m good at falling.. no one said anything about having to swim…))
Tabris: Tabris Swim Check (Take 10): 16
Vincent casts bull str on himself, then follows Tabris.
Marillion: is ishirou missing his arms or is that just the pic?
Garrion: tab dives down and… perception
Tabris: ((Just the pic))
Tabris: Tabris Perception Check: 24
Lynis: lol. that’d be awesome if he was
Lynis: but he still carried the sword on his back
Vincent: Vincent APPLYING: Bulls Strength
Vincent: (( can take 10 on swim?))
Marillion: you would have to be very bad ass to be a swordsman without arms
Garrion: you see a 5 ft hole and swim up it… it ascends into a dry area
Lynis: ((It’d explain why he’s got no teeth left))
Vincent: Vincent Swim Check (Take 10): 9
Tabris taps Vincent on the shoulder and motions towards the hole, then swims down into it
Marillion: ha ha ha
Garrion: yo see a locked chest
Lynis: ((When you parry with a sword in your mouth, it’s gonna take a toll))
Tabris: lol
Marillion: maybe he’s just english
Marillion: on his father side or something
Vincent looks at it, " I"ll go abc
Garrion: one sec.. time to switch movies for kids
Vincent: " I"ll go back and letg them know"
Marillion: oh, I thought I was the “kids”. thought we where going to flip the channel on the crstal ball
Vincent swims back ( taking 10) and yells up, " Hey, we found a locked chest down here, gonna need some help"
Tabris: lol
Garrion: back
Lynis: “ALright tie the rope to it and pull on it when you got it attached.”
Garrion: what is taking 10?
Vincent: Vincent Swim Check (Take 10): 9
Vincent: swimming
Tabris: He’s trying to Take 10 on his Swim checks
Garrion: just seeing the result
Tabris: The DC is usually 10, lol
Vincent: (( I have +1 from adrenelin high))
Tabris: lol
Tabris: “Hmph… Decent size chest at least…”
Garrion: damn site is slow.. checking DCs
Garrion: yeah, calm water is 10
Garrion: we say you using sides to assit you and make it with full action instead of move only
Satomi steals a glance down the front of her own kimono.
Vincent: (( so miss by 1 is just not go anywhere?))
Tabris: ((Yeah pretty much))
Vincent: (( is fine by me, not doing anything other then swimming))
Lynis: ((hehe, I was thinking the same thing you were Sachi :) ))
Tabris: ((Haha))
Vincent swims back to TAbris, " lets see if we can tie the rope to it and pull it out"
Ishirou: “I’ll be right down to check the lock. Great job Tabris.”
Ishirou: Ishirou Climb Check: 19
Vincent: (( or that))
Ishirou: Ish climbs down and ….
Lynis: ((It’d be awesome if Deenia pushed him down))
Lynis: ((She seems hardcore enough to kill him for ripping us off))
Ishirou: Ishirou Swim Check: 21
Tabris: “I don’t need your compliments, I expect to be well compensated for being sent down into a dark hole full of dirty water and fucking ghouls!”
Marillion is disconnected.
Ishirou: he swims the tunnel with ease
Ishirou: and examines the chest….
Ishirou: Ishirou Perception Check: 9
Note: +1 vs Traps
Ishirou: not seeing any traps he attempts to pick the lock
Lynis: ((lol, I hope he kills himself with a trap heh))
Vincent stays well back from the chest.
Ishirou: now that is not very nice
Lynis: ((It’d be even funnier if it was a mimic :P ))
Tabris: lol
Ishirou: Ishirou Disable Device Check: 9
Note: +1 vs Traps
Vincent: ((wow, he sucks ))
Marillion has connected.
Tabris: “You need help with that? I hear hitting them really hard usually works.”
Tabris smirks as he watches Ishirou fumble with the lock
Ishirou: “Hmm, i can’t seem to get this.. let me try again.”
Vincent: " let the man do what he needs to do, I"m sure he’s a professional"
Lynis: ((Yeah pro bullshitter))
Marillion says to the GMs: GM Status Updated. (The listed names are GMs.)
[“garrion”]
Tabris: “Tch, yeah, I guess that’s one term for the guys that send people into pits full of ghouls without warning them ahead of time.”
Ishirou: Ishirou Disable Device Check: 11
Note: +1 vs Traps
Vincent: ((heh, Tabris has that job locked up))
Tabris: “He offers a pittance to the guys that do all the dangerous work and then expects to keep the rest for himself.”
Ishirou: “This is a very good lock. I’m not sure I ahev the skill to open it.”
Satomi: “Hmmm…”
Ishirou: “This may take a while….”
Ishirou: Ishirou Disable Device Check (Take 20): 26
Note: +1 vs Traps
Tabris: ((Is it a padlock or is it built into the chest?))
Lynis: “Lets just haul it up here and let Tabris smash it.”
Satomi: ((aw man, I was gonna offer to try))
Ishirou: he works at it for a long time and shakes his head….
Ishirou: “This is beyond my ability.”
Marillion: does anyone know how to increase the memory for map tools on a mac?
Ishirou: it is very heavy.. good luck swimming with it
Tabris: “You gotta be shitting me… You drag us out here in the middle of the fucking jungle, make us dig this damn hole open, drop me down into a pit full of ghouls, and you can’t even open the god damn chest?”
Marillion: it’s running fast but I got booted just now
Lynis: ((On a mac, I have no idea))
Lynis: ((It’d be a command line argument to java, but how to access that on a mac, I don’t know))
Ishirou: neo can help you if anyone can
Satomi: “Are they having trouble? Perhaps I should help…?”
Vincent: (( should just pop up a box when you first load it?))
Marillion: like, neo “the one”.
Ishirou: Did satomi climb and swim down?
Satomi: ((My disable device is 10… so I might be able to do it…))
Marillion: sweet
Lynis: hehe.
Tabris: lol
Satomi: Not yet
Vincent: " I’ll go let her know"
Tabris: Satomi needs to do Climb and Swim checks if she wants to go down and help
Marillion: ok, what about auto-scroll on the chat window? I have to keep scrolling it down
Lynis: Whjy don’t we just pull it up?)
Tabris: Meanwhile Tab is berating Ishirou for his incompetence and such
Lynis: ((Wrap thje rope around it and we’ll pull it))
Vincent swims back and yells up for Satomi, " Satomi, we need your help" (will also climb up before my bull str wears out)
Tabris: It’s really heavy apparently
Lynis: ((that way we don’t gotta open it in the shit pit))
Lynis: ((tghere’s like 6 of us))
Vincent: Vincent Climb Check (Take 10): 16
Lynis: ((our max lift is at least 1000 lbs))
Satomi: “Hai! Just a minute~!”
Ishirou: you think perhaps you could use the rope to assit, but it would still be pretty hard
Tabris: Really, really heavy
Vincent: ((pretty sure teh rope won’t hold 1000 lbs))
Ishirou: the hard part is getting it through the tunnel and to the bottom of the pit to haul up
Tabris: ((lol yeah, the rope will probably snap given our luck))
Satomi finds a secluded spot and takes off her kimono, so she doesn’t get it dirty…
Tabris: ((Also the hole it’s hidden in is only 5 ft wide))
Marillion: who wants to get on the bottom and push up while everyone else pulls on the rope?
Marillion: ha ha ha
Lynis: ((heh… well I doubt it’s 1000 lbs lol))
Lynis: ((That’d be one heavy chest heh))
Satomi: What are the DCs?
Lynis: ((I mean most I figure it could be is like 200 lbs))
Tabris: lol you don’t even know what’s in it man
Tabris: Gold is fucking heavy
Vincent: (( pretty much 10 for climb and swim.. as for the lock, its over 26 ))
Ishirou: not sure? the climb looks easy.. and well vinccent swam ok
Marillion: ((anyone know how to turn on auto-scroll in the chat window so I don’t have to keep scrolling it down?, thanks!))
Tabris: DO you have a little speech bubble thing in the lower right
Tabris: CLick that so that there isn’t an X over it
Satomi: (( try clicking a little icon of chat bubbles next to it, lower right, if there is one ))
Lynis: It’s the little chat bubles on the right of your chat bar.
Ishirou: ((yeah, the icons on the right of the chat window))
Tabris: Or a dash rather
Vincent: (( I can borrow you my ring for the climbs if you need em?))
Satomi takes a deep breath…
Marillion: ((and there it is, thanks))
Satomi: I don’t have a penalty, so I can make it if it’s 10.
Vincent: (( you should be ok then))
Ishirou: you have your tools right?
Lynis: ((I mean I figure it’d be easier to haul out the chest than carry the stuff up))
Satomi: Yeah, I have thieves tools
Satomi: MW tools, in fact
Ishirou: ok, give me a series of checks.. climb, swim, disable
Tabris: “I can’t believe this garbage… You’ve got a lot of nerve thinking you deserve 2/3 of this just for telling us where it is after all the shit I’ve had to put up with to get to it!”
Satomi: Satomi Climb Check (Take 10): 10
Satomi: Satomi Swim Check (Take 10): 10
Lynis: ((Now her kimono is gonna be all filthy))
Satomi: (( She took it off beforehand ))
Tabris: ((Nah she said she was taking it off))
Lynis: ((oh heh))
Lynis: ((So she’s jumping in naked?))
Tabris is yelling at Ishirou as Satomi emerges into the cavern…
Lynis can’t help staring at naked Satomi.
Satomi surfaces wearing a sarashi, a small sort of loincloth, and not really much else.
Tabris: “I mean really, of all the…”
Tabris stops talking as he spots Satomi and starts staring…
Vincent: ((tabris head gonna explode))
Satomi stretches.
Satomi: “Haaaa… That tunnel all cramped and dirty…”
Lynis: ((Well the rancid smell of rotting ghoul flesh and guts probably kills the mood somewhat down there))
Lynis: ((Unless Tabris is into that sorta thing…))
Ishirou: very much
Tabris: ((lol… Not particularly… But hey, he gets to see Satomi naked))
Lynis: ((visitng those necromancer brothels…))
Garrion: that would be a will save DC 20 to get it up
Satomi kneels in front of the chest and starts working on it with her set of tools…
Tabris: Tabris: Will Save: 5 FAILURE!
+1 vs Mind-Affecting, +1 vs Compulsion, +1 vs Poison and Drugs ()
Tabris: lol
Garrion: for sure not
Satomi: (( She’s not totally naked… She’s got a strip of cloth wrapped around her honkers… Though it’s soaking wet. ))
Tabris: “Hey there, Satomi… That’s a nice look for you, you should try it more often…”
Satomi: (( ;p ))
Tabris cracks a joke as he forgets being angry at Ishirou for the moment…
Satomi tosses off a casual reply, hiding a tiny smirk.
Satomi: “How much money you give me?”
Satomi: Satomi Disable Device Check (Take 20): 30
Vincent: ((haha, honkers))
Tabris: “Hey, Ishirou’s the one with all the money, talk to him…”
Garrion: Satomi gives the lock a shot….
Garrion: it takes her a while as she carefully works it with nimble fingers… pop
Garrion: the lock snaps open….
Garrion: everyone awaits with eager eyes…..
Tabris: “Now let’s see what’s in this damn thing… Better be worth it…”
Satomi slowly lifts the lid, with sidelong glances at the others crowded around her…
Garrion: the chest is filled wiyth coins and other sundries…
Garrion: appraisal
Marillion: ((whisper/deenia: nope, I have snow lepord))
Vincent: (( sun dried tomato’s ? weak ))
Marillion: ((no whisper….))
Satomi snatches a handful of coins and stuffs it in with her kit.
Satomi: “Appearance fee!~”
Satomi winks.
Tabris: Tabris Appraise Check: 19
Tabris grins
Vincent: ((haha))
Tabris: “Money well spent!”
Vincent waits patiently above, ready to pull on the rope when needed.
Garrion: you see lots of copper, silver and gold, a silk pouch, several moldy nobles outfits, a bejeweled masterwork starknife that seems made of a special metal a very nice darkwood buckler and a scroll
Garrion: make that a scroll tume made of shiny metal
Satomi: “Ooooh…”
Satomi inspects the knife…
Satomi: “Maybe I take this instead of coins.”
Garrion: you take the rest of the day hauling everything up in loads and taking inventory…..
Satomi: Satomi Appraise Check: 25
Garrion: the buckler is magic
Garrion: so spellcraft to determine that
Tabris: Tabris Spellcraft Check: 11
Garrion: and the scroll inside the tube
Deenia Paydar: Deenia Paydar Spellcraft Check: 26
Tabris: Tabris Spellcraft Check: 27
Deenia Paydar: Deenia Paydar Spellcraft Check: 25
Vincent: (( well I think you guys crushed those))
Satomi: (( I don’t think my scimitar is masterwork… I dunno what a starknife is exactly… ))
Vincent: ((definently, its my old one))
Garrion: contains the following loot: 3,500 cp, 2,000 sp, 1,000 gp, 50 pp, a silk pouch of garnets and amethysts worth 500 gp in all, a half-dozen moldered and ruined noble’s outfits, a bejeweled masterwork cold iron starknife worth 650 gp, a +1 darkwood buckler, and a scroll of raise dead in a watertight mithral scroll tube worth 500 gp.
Deenia Paydar: (( Vincent you may want to K:Religion that starknife ))
Satomi: (( Oh seriously? I don’t think I have that in there ))
Tabris: “Hmph… Gems might be worth something… Buckler’s worth some money…”
Lynis: ((wow… that’s a shitload of stuff))
Vincent: Vincent Knowledge (religion) Check: 7
Deenia Paydar: (( It is Desna’s Favorite weapon ))
Tabris: Damn that’s a lot of coins
Garrion: i said it was HEAVY
Vincent: ((I’ll take teh raise dead scroll as my loot))
Tabris: Heh, Ishirou is taking 2/3 of this remember
Tabris: We have to split the rest
Tabris: Or 1/3 of it rather
Satomi: Actually
Tabris: And 1/3 goes just to Satomi
Satomi: :3
Tabris: So the rest of us all have to split 1/3
Tabris: The gp equivalent of that scroll might be higher than our entire share, lol
Vincent: (( who would deny a raise dead scroll to a cleric.. really))
Tabris: Ishirou, apparently
Garrion: haha, you can always negotiate
Tabris: I’ve been trying to, you’ve been ignoring me lol
Marillion: ((watch out! He has the sword in his teeth!))
Tabris: Tab has been doing nothing but complain about how shitty this job was and how Ishirou’s terms are bullshit
Satomi: “Eeee… That scroll might take a while to sell in town, ne…?”
Tabris: Especially after getting dropped in a pit with ghouls
Lynis: Well don’t tell him it’s raise dead.. tell him its a cantrip
Lynis: he can’t read magic
Garrion: you’ve gripped but i’ve not heard any suggestio of new terms
Tabris: “I say we split this evenly, there’s no way you deserve an entire third of this by yourself!”
Lynis: ((Or you can trade him a cemetary plot for his share))
Tabris: “I did all the work of getting to it and Satomi was the one who actually opened the chest!”
Vincent raises an eyebrow, " all ?"
Satomi: “Vincent do that jump! I saw it!”
Tabris: “Hey, I can’t account for crazy, I could have handled the other ghoul myself.”
Lynis: “I shot that ghoul with an arrow!”
Ishirou: “I did have the map. You wounld have never found this without me. You did a lot too though, how about 50% mine and you all split the rest.”
Lynis: ((He just upped his share, lol))
Lynis: ((Before he was only getting a 1/3))
Tabris: “You couldn’t even get the lock on the chest open, what good is the map if you can’t even open the damn thing?”
Satomi: “Ahahaha! You make good joke!~”
Ishirou: no he was getting 2/3
Satomi pats Ishirou appreciatively.
Lynis: ((oh I thought it was 1/3 to ish, 1/3 to satomi and 1/3 to everyone else))
Satomi: ((I thought he and I were each getting 1/3 and they were splitting the rest))
Tabris: ((Yeah I had the 2/3 wrong before))
Tabris: “And I notice that you’re actually increasing your share while penalizing Satomi, who is apparently a better lockpick than you.”
Ishirou: that does sound right…
Tabris: “Doesn’t seem all that fair to me…”
Ishirou: “I did have the map. You wounld have never found this without me. You did a lot too though, how about 25% mine and you all split the rest.”
Tabris takes a moment to do some mental math…
Tabris: “Hmm… So 15% to each of us then…”
Satomi: “Extra for lockpicking show! I not joking about that!”
Tabris: “Yeah sure, I guess we can do that… But your share is in copper and silver.”
Tabris smirks
Ishirou: "Aww, come on. I guess if that’s the way it is
Ishirou: “Aww, come on. I guess if that’s the way it is.”
Vincent: " lets get this back, won’t be worth anything if we can’t get off this island"
Ishirou: “Now let’s get all this stuff to camp. I can see that the light is burning in the lighthouse.”
Tabris: “Yeah, let’s go ahead and split it up though so it doesn’t get mixed in with the rest of our stuff…”
Satomi: “Ehehe… Don’t be spiteful Tabu-san… I want everyone to have good feelings about my transactions!”
Tabris: ((Also good luck carrying a few dozen pounds of copper, lol))
Ishirou: it is nearing evening now and you only have time to make it to the makeshift old camp nearby.
Satomi hugs Tab and Ishirou side by side… She hasn’t changed back into her kimono yet, not until she’s had a chance to bathe
Vincent: Vincent APPLYING: Large Shield
Vincent: (( can get some poles and carry it between us))
Ishirou: there is a river nearby for a moonlight dip
Tabris: “Hey, if more transactions involve you with less clothing, I’ll be plenty happy…”
Vincent: ((we set up watches and then rest for the night))
Satomi giggles politely at Tab’s little comment…
Ishirou: ok, so that is 1735 worth of coins
Tabris: Let’s see, not counting the gems and other items, the gp equivalent of Ishirou’s share of the coins is 433.75, so that means Ishirou gets all the copper and silver and then a little bit of gold
Ishirou: 433.75
Ishirou: is ish’s share
Tabris: Good luck hauling around 5500 coins, lol
Satomi: “Ara, I take some of the copper and silver. Need it to make change sometime, ne…?”
Satomi: ((we don’t have to math all that out really…))
Ishirou: you can make a litter
Tabris: lol I’m not helping him carry his share of the coin
Tabris: He gets to carry that all on his own
Vincent: (( son’t seem like I have ownership of my stuff on the loot page))
Ishirou: ok, i’m just seperating his share and the rest will go on the site for group split
Vincent: ((why lets just split the cash now, since we already doing it ))
Ishirou: 1301.25
Ishirou: to the rest of you
Vincent: 260.25 each
Tabris: Yup
Tabris: So that’s 260 gp, 2 sp, 5 cp I believe
Ishirou: you can seperate out the gems… 125
Ishirou: 375 for all of you in gems
Vincent: ((we hit any misc encounters on the way back? else we back at camp?))
Ishirou: 83
Ishirou: 77
Ishirou: 87
Ishirou: 67
Tabris: 75
Tabris: 75 worth of gems for each of us
Ishirou: you make it back to the camp, satomi bathes in the river, you sleep like babies in your treasure and make the 2 day trek back to the main camp
Vincent: Vincent has taken an Extended Rest of 8 hours.
4 hitpoints gained. Daily abilities restored. Fatigue effects cleared.
Ishirou: Today is 19 Arodus 4708 AR.
Vincent: Vincent has taken an Extended Rest of 8 hours.
4 hitpoints gained. Daily abilities restored. Fatigue effects cleared.
Tabris: Tabris has taken an Extended Rest of 8 hours.
4 hitpoints gained. Daily abilities restored. Fatigue effects cleared.
Marillion: ((guessing I’ll need to set up some macro’s…))
Ishirou: Today is 20 Arodus 4708 AR.
Ishirou: Today is 21 Arodus 4708 AR.
Satomi: “Ahhh… That was refreshing!”
Ishirou: you arrive late on the 21st
Satomi: (( Can you not see the campaign macros and stuff? ))
Satomi: (( Or they don’t work or something? ))
Vincent: Vincent REMOVING: Bulls Strength
Tabris: ((Go to Window—→Campaign))
Ishirou: As you arrive at camp it is empty….
Deenia Paydar: (( I still make macros for my skills I use often and Active Mods that I use ))
Marillion: ((got em now))
Marillion: ((just needed to show window))
Lynis: ((guess you missed the boat))
Tabris: “Oyyyyy! Where is everybody?!”
Lynis: ((I woudl totally do that as a DM to you :P ))
Vincent: " maybe they spotted a ship?"
Lynis: “Did we miss the boat?”
Satomi: “Ara? Where did they go?”
Lynis runbs to the lighthouse
Tabris: “That can’t be it, Aerys and Sasha would never abandon me here!”
Lynis: ((I’ll get a good vantage point from the lighthouse))
Ishirou: perceptions
Lynis: ((Yeah, Aerys has a sword woud in her back… and is dead upstairs))
Deenia Paydar: Deenia Paydar Perception Check: 22
Tabris: Tabris Perception Check: 23
Lynis: Lynis Perception Check: 12
Satomi: Satomi Perception Check: 18
Vincent: Vincent Perception Check: 15
Ishirou: ((for thosae of you trying to record on your coin pouches in limbo, they are objects so select object layer and then you can edit them))
Lynis: ((I don’t think PCs can select the object layer))
Ishirou: Tabris finds a note.
Tabris: ((Yeah we can’t))
Tabris: “Hey, look, there’s a note here.”
Ishirou: oh, i’ll change them to tokens then
Satomi: “What does it say?!”
Cedric: ((probably easier taht way))
Tabris opens it up and reads
Lynis: ((The note reads “ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US”))
Tabris: ((I’m just hoping it doesn’t say “Croatan”))
Ishirou: The note is dates the 20th, yesterday. “Hopefully all is well and you are not dead in the jungle. You have been gone a long time. A ship spotted our signal today and they have come ashore to rescue us. We told them we had some other companions and they said they would wait 2 more days before sailing on the Eleder. i hope you will get this in time. We are leaving to stay on the boat and they will watch for sign of your return before sailing away. Your friends.”
Lynis: “Well lets signal em!”
Tabris: “Yeah, let’s do something with the light and get their attention, they must be out at sea somewhere…”
Vincent: " Satomi, use teh spy glass you see them anywhere?"
Satomi pulls out her spyglass and scans the shoreline…
Tabris: ((How does the light for the lighthouse work? Is it mirrors or like a giant torch?))
Vincent: (( think gives +5 to perception or something?))
Lynis: ((I figure it’s flames and mirrors))
Ishirou: it is dusk, hard to see
Lynis lights a tip of an arrow and fires it into the air)
Ishirou: it is a giant light with polished plates that flash and a complex mechanism to rotate them
Tabris attempts to manipulate the light from the lighthouse in a manner that might be interpreted as a signal
Lynis: ((I’ll fire a few flaming arrows into the air))
Tabris: ((That might be easier))
Vincent casts light on each arrow before Lynis fires em.
Tabris: ((I can fire a few Scorching Rays too, lol))
Lynis: ((NOw the random chance that the ship’s lookout was actuallydrunk and passed out))
Lynis: ((Dont’ think those got enough range really))
Lynis: ((Maybe if you had a fireball))
Ishirou: 17
Satomi: (( I can use Dancing Lights as a spell-like ability! I’ll do that! ))
Ishirou: 19
Satomi conjures up a few small orbs of light and sends them floating into the air as high as she can.
Satomi: (( Without canceling the spell ))
Satomi: ((Actually though))
Satomi: (( There was an alternate racial ability for that that must’ve come out during the break that I was thinking of replacing it with, but I doubt it’d make or break whether they see us… ))
Tabris: ((I can always start lighting signal fires if I have to, lol))
Lynis: ((Yeah they updated the SRD apparnetly))
Tabris: Tabris Survival Check: 13
Lynis: ((Considering my char got one of his traits nerfed :( ))
Ishirou: You see a light twinkle out in the distant sea.
Lynis: ((And nerfed into the ground too))
Satomi: (( Damn ))
Lynis: ((I have never seen such a brutal nerfing))
Tabris: lol
Ishirou: i had to go tend to family matters, sorry for the delay
Lynis: http://seekersofsecrets.com/?p=248
Lynis: Check out that nerfing.
Satomi: (( I now have the option to replace my Dancing Lights 3/day spell-like with the ability to shapeshift as a move instead of a standard ))
Lynis: That right there was some kinda infinite attack combo with the nerfbat.
Satomi: (( Or at least that’s in there now ))
Lynis: Took an awesome trait and downed it inot total garbage.
Ishirou: You see a light twinkle out in the distant sea.
Ishirou: it flashes several times.
Marillion: ((I have an ak-47 that was passed down to my character….))
Satomi: “YA-HOU!~”
Tabris: “Hey! There they are!”
Lynis fires another arrow in response)
Vincent: " think it worked, lets head that way"
Lynis: ((flaming arrow that is))
Garrion: out to sea?
Lynis: “To the ship!”
Vincent: (( light arrow))
Garrion: it is dark, you will have to wait till morning
Lynis: ((Well not directly at the ship, but like so they can see the signal flare))
Lynis: ((Lynis has low light vision))
Vincent: (( it evening?))
Garrion: yes, you arrived at the camp late evening after a full day of travel to get back
Lynis: ((pretty sure Satomi does too))
Tabris: ((Yes he said it was dusk))
Lynis: “Lets get going!”
Tabris: ((Either way I don’t want to risk wrecking in our shitty little rowboat and sinking all our treasure))
Garrion: you settle in and await your rescue…. 96
Garrion: 32
Garrion: 1
Tabris: “Dude are you nuts? It’s nightfall and we have a shitty rowboat.”
Vincent: " they probably wont’ hazard a boat at night, guess we head that way in the morning. least they won’t leave without us"
Garrion: 93
Tabris: “We’re not going to get all our treasure off the island in that thing.”
Lynis: “I can see in the dark… it’s the half-elven eyes… technically only one of my eyes can…. but that’s good enough.”
Lynis: “i’ll wear an eyepatch over the other one.”
Lynis: “It’s an old pirate’s trick.”
Tabris: “We have a giant pile of coins and other miscellaneous loot, it won’t all fit in the rowboat along with all of us.”
Vincent: " they will probably send a small boat over to pick us up, adn with guys who know what they are doing as well"
Tabris: “And if we hit the rocks and the rowboat sinks we lose all our treasure.”
Satomi: (( I do have low-light, yeah ))
Lynis: “Hmm… yeah I guess that’s true…”
Vincent: ((hehe, confirmed by Mythbusters))
Tabris: “They know we’re here, just kick back and relax for tonight.”
Lynis: “Yeah okay… though it’s hard to relax with all this treasure… and knowing rescue is so close.”
Vincent: " think I will sleep well, we are saved"
Garrion: as the morning come you can see a large ship anchored far from shore… soon you see a set of small rowboats approaching toward the surf…..
Satomi: “Sou yo… Finally…!”
Tabris: “Yeah, I can stomach one more night on this hellhole for a guaranteed rescue…”
Garrion: “Ahoy there!”
Satomi leaps into the air, waving ecstatically to the rescuers.
Marillion is disconnected.
Tabris: “Yo! Welcome to the party!”
Satomi: “Ya-hou! Arigatou gozaimasu!”
Lynis: “Finally rescue!”
Marillion has connected.
Garrion: “We thought you was dead for sure. Your friends convinced us to stay around a couple more days. Come this evening we yould have left.”
Vincent waves to them as they come, " YES "
Tabris: “It’ll take more than some shitty cursed island to do me in.”
Garrion: “Its amazing to find anyone here on the Shiv. The cap nearly didn’t believe it and thought it some sort of trap.”
Lynis: “Dead?! Are you kidding? I’m a dragon-slayer!”
Marillion says to the GMs: GM Status Updated. (The listed names are GMs.)
[“garrion”]
Lynis: “Well it was a trap, but we disarmed it. Well technically they did…”
Satomi: “We so happy to see you! Thank you so so much!”
Satomi bows gratefully.
Lynis: “But I wanted to go help them disarm it, but they told me to stay back at camp.”
Vincent: " thanks for staying.. now lets get the hell out of here.. if you don’t mind"
Lynis: “I bet if I went, I would have disarmed it twice as fast.”
Tabris: “Yeah I second that motion, let’s get to Eleder…”
Garrion: “Well there is a storm blowing in. We better get you aboard so we can set sail before she hits and blows us into the rocks.”
Lynis: “Yeah…. Thgat’s already happened to us once…”
Garrion: at that you look to the west and see dark clouds…
Lynis: “I don’t want it to happen again.”
Lynis: “So I’m all for leaving!”
Tabris: “Me neither… Come on, let’s load everything up, chop chop!”
Vincent: " the faster the better, lets go"
Satomi: “Yes… Let’s go without delay!”
Lynis: “To glory! And beer!”
Deenia Paydar: “Woah. Hold on. Are we really going to just hop on their boat without any questioning? They could be pirates for all we know.”
Satomi: “Eeeh?”
Lynis shrugs.
Tabris: “I’ll take pirates to this place any day.”
Satomi: Satomi Sense Motive Check: 24
Lynis: “If they’re pirates at least they’ve got a ship.”
Garrion: ‘Gather your things and in the boats. We’ll row ya out of here."
Satomi: (( Wow, reflexive ))
Deenia Paydar: “Then just hand over all your belongings and wrelcome indenture servitude.”
Garrion: they seem to be sailors on a merchant ship
Tabris: “Pffft, yeah right… If they try to plunder my loot then they’ll get my sword through their gut.”
Lynis: “Plus, I’d make a great pirate.”
Deenia Paydar: (( and we know this how? Their ship is way out in the water ))
Tabris: “But these guys seem legit, let’s go.”
Tabris: ((The island is near trade routes isn’t it?))
Tabris: ((I mean that’s how we ended up here more or less))
Lynis: “I mean, it’s not like they can be any worse than fungus island.”
Garrion: their attire.. they are nicely dressed, or nicer than a pirate…. unless very rich pirates
Vincent: " after what we faced on the island, I doubt pirates will be much of a problem, lets go"
Tabris: “Yeah, they aren’t ghouls, or weird fungus shit, or snake people… So at this point I don’t care.”
Satomi: (( Yeah, it’s definitely not out of the question, and I sorta doubt pirates would bother going by here unless they had to do with those reptilian fellows ))
Garrion: yes, all trade goes near here to eleder
Satomi: (( Landing on this island, I mean. ))
Garrion: most try to stay well clear of the shiv though
Lynis: ((ALso if they were pirates they wouldn’t have wiated for us))
Lynis: ((the’yd have just taken the people that were at camp and left))
Deenia Paydar: (( They could have wrote that note ))
Deenia Paydar: (( after killing our friends out at sea ))
Lynis: ((Well why would they want to wait for their heavily armed friends to arrive))
Satomi: (( They could have also just taken our stuff and marooned us here ))
Deenia Paydar: (( Really? 100’s to 6. ))
Lynis: ((nah, there aint that many on a pirate ship, unless it’s a pirate fleet))
Tabris: ((lol yeah, they could have made off with everything at camp and just left us, why bother dealing with the most heavily armed and strongest members of the group when the majority of the loot and the easy prey was left behind))
Satomi: (( I mean what the hell would pirates do with six warm bodies versus a campsite full of stuff? ))
Deenia Paydar: (( I wasn’t here for the Ishirou bit, but I bet he wasn’t secretive about asking for help ))
Garrion: “Wow this crap is heavy, what do you have in there?”
Lynis: ((Nah he was secretive))
Lynis: ((I mean he was keeping taht chest all to ihmself until Satomi asked hima bout it))
Satomi: (( He was really quite discreet ))
Tabris: ((Yeah he didn’t even reveal he had the map until Satomi friendlied up to him))
Lynis: ((And who knows what kinda sexual favors she had to perfroim to get that 1/3 share))
Tabris: lol
Vincent: " our stuff"
Deenia Paydar: “None of your concern.”
Satomi: (( His map was even encoded, so we couldn’t have just shanked him and taken it ))
Satomi: “Information cost money!~”
Lynis: ((Yeah, we’d have had to torture him to translate it))
Satomi winks mystifyingly.
Satomi: (( …Not that we’d ever do that ))
Tabris: lol
Lynis: (( Hurskan might if he wasn’t turned into batman. ))
Lynis: (( but Batman has a code against killing. ))
Tabris: “Just rescue us already, this ain’t a Chelaxian court.”
Garrion: ok, you load up and get on the main ship… it sets sail as the winds pick up…
Tabris: Tabris Intimidate Check: 13
Garrion: “Its a good thing you arrived when you did. We would have had to set sail early and without you due to this storm.”
Taragnor: Your intimidation rating was equivalent to an old gujy yelling at kids to get off his lawn.
Tabris: lol
Tabris: Probably good enough for some random merchants
Satomi: “Sou yo, you’re very kind!”
Garrion: were you really yelling at them and trying to intimidate?
Satomi would be trying to stop Tab if he is
Tabris: Not yelling, just trying to get them to stop asking questions about our stuff
Marillion: ((wrath of the DM!))
Garrion: it was one question remarking how heavy your bags were as they assisted loading them in boats
Satomi: Satomi Diplomacy Check: 27
Taragnor: Lynis will frely spill his guts on the voyage back about all the aweswome treasure they found, and all his heroic deeds
Taragnor: especially the bit about killing those dragons.
Tabris: lol
Tabris: Hopefully they just think he’s bullshitting them
Tabris: Since he’s a kid =P
Taragnor: Yeah lol.
Taragnor: I’m imagining him as having the personality of the average pokemon kid.
Satomi: “Tab-san… We stay polite to guests…”
Satomi covertly twists his arm a little…
Tabris: “Yes ma’am, whatever you say ma’am…”
Satomi: ((not guests))
Tabris replies a little sarcastically
Taragnor: I was kinda disappointed we didn’t have that mephit with us, cause I was totally gonna have Lynis choose him and tell him to go fight for him.
Satomi: ((hosts))
Tabris: Hahaha
Satomi: (( Like a pokemon? ))
Taragnor: Yup heh.
Garrion: “Oh, those are some crazy tales. Your companions did say you had faced many dangers out here and that I don’t doubt. This place is notorious.”
Satomi: “Yes… I glad so many escaped with our lives… Too many already not make it.”
Tabris: “I told you, they weren’t actual dragons you idiot, they were just big lizards.”
Lynis: “Someone called them dragons!”
Lynis: “They were small dragons, but they were still dragons…”
Lynis: “I mean.. what is a dragno, but a big lizard?”
Tabris: “People who don’t know what they’re talking about call any big lizard a dragon, there are clear differences.”
Satomi: “Is a figure of speech… You see, dragon resemble lizard…”
Lynis: “It had big teeth, a tail, and scales…. I mean it was probably a really young one….”
Tabris: ((I have Knowledge: Nature and Arcana, I can probably school him, lol))
Lynis: “But I’m still a dragon slayer!”
Garrion: ok, the ship sails into eleder with a large storm on its heels… you take refuge in the port city as the trapical storm hits and douses the area in rain for 1 days
Tabris facepalms…
Deenia Paydar is disconnected.
Satomi: “Usually dragon flies…”
Tabris: “Dragons have wings you idiot, even the hatchlings.”
Lynis: ((lynis rejects your reality and substitutes his own))
Satomi demonstrates dragon flight using her kimono sleeves.
Lynis: “Their wings just hadn’t grown out yet.”
Tabris: “And even the hatchlings can use breath weapons, those things didn’t.”
Tabris: “They have wings FROM BIRTH.”
Tabris: “These things DIDN’T.”
Lynis: “How do you know? Those were the first dragons you fought.”
Satomi: “Tab-san use a breath weapon after he eat curry! Hahaha!~”
Satomi giggles.
Tabris: “I’ve dabbled in the arcane, I know about dragons.”
Lynis: “Well I’ve heard a bards tale or two….”
Lynis: “And trust me, they can come without wings.”
Satomi: (( About his breath? ))
Deenia Paydar has connected.
Tabris: “Bards are full of shit, you can’t believe half of what they say.”
Tabris: “No offense, Gelik.”
Lynis: “I met a dragonslayer once and he told me.”
Garrion: you wrap up a plot point and all gain a hero point
Lynis: “Takes a few months before they grow their wings.”
Satomi: “But then where is the mama dragon?”
Tabris: “Yeah moron, what about that?”
Deenia Paydar says to the GMs: GM Status Updated. (The listed names are GMs.)
[“garrion”]
Tabris: “Baby dragons don’t just appear out of nowhere.”
Marillion: ((she’s on the way to eat the ship))
Lynis: “Uh… maybe she drowned?”
Lynis: “They were around that wrecked ship…”
Tabris: “No way, dragons are way too smart for something like that.”
Garrion: updating site while you discuss the finer details of dragons….
Lynis: “maybe thier mother died there… the sailors may bhave taken her down before they sank her ship.:”
Satomi: “Ehhh… He not a moron, just very imaginative!”
Vincent: " that lizard lady was the worse"
Satomi pats Lynis’ head
Tabris sighs and shakes his head…
Lynis: “The pathfinders must have killed him.”
Lynis: “Remember that was a pathfinder ship.”
Tabris: “That was a completely different ship.”
Tabris: “The one covered in fungus, remember?”
Lynis: “Oh rigght… well the other ship might have had some experienced warrior on it…”
Tabris: “If that’s the case then how come he didn’t survive the wreck?”
Tabris: “You’re telling me the guy can slay a dragon but he can’t survive being washed up on a tropical island?”
Lynis: “Maybe he sank in his heavy armor.”
Garrion: While you take shelter from the storm, word spreads about the castaways rescued from the Shiv. Many people approach you wishing to hear your tales of adventure…..
Lynis: “Like Vincent… he’s pretty powerful, but he can’t swim well.”
Tabris: “That’s why you shed the armor if you drop into the water…”
Lynis: ((Lynis is all too eager to tell them his tales, and a few extra tales he came up with on the way))
Vincent: " I do prefer to keep my feet dry "
Garrion: you leave the shiv behind…. and the map is gone….
Tabris: Huzzah
Tabris: Good riddance
Satomi gladly mingles, telling mildly embellished tales of bravery… She’s careful to puff up the others as much as herself, so it doesn’t look like she’s being self-serving…
Lynis: “Well how ishe going to take off his armor while he’s fighting a dragon?”
Tabris facepalms again…
Lynis: “maybe the baby dragon knocked him into the water after he dealt a deathblow to the mother dragon.”
Garrion: all changes recorded to main tokens, deleting the ones on treasure pit map?
Tabris: “Oh come on, that’s ridiculous, how is a guy who can take down a fully grown dragon going to get done in by a hatchling?”
Lynis: “It pushed him from behind into the water.”
Lynis: “Could have just been a lucky shot.”
Vincent: ((fine by me))
Tabris: “Okay well if he’s not fighting the big dragon and he goes into the water then he can take his armor off and not sink.”
Vincent: ((book 2 here we come))
Lynis: “Well it was at the end of the dragon fight….”
Lynis: “Or perhaps the draogn and him were both sinking…”
Lynis: “Locked in mortal combat…”
Marillion is disconnected.
Lynis: “WHo can say who lasted longer, but both met an end at the depths of the murky sea…”
Lynis: “There could also have been a sea serpent involved.”
Tabris: “Geez, are you sure you aren’t a Bard?”
Satomi: “Uwaa, sugoi…”
Garrion: Who all looked at the map of Eleder on the site?
Tabris: I glanced at it briefly
Vincent: ((um… no))
Satomi seems to be getting into Lynis’ story too… She spreads the flattery around as well…
Lynis: ((nope))
Satomi: ((not yet))
Marillion has connected.
Lynis: “Hey, there’s nothing wrong with telling an entertaining story… it’s how you spread your name…. get a rep.”
Garrion: well here it is for you, you are staying at the Sargava Club… a recommended astablishment you rushed to before the storm him
Tabris focuses on making himself look good and talking up his combat prowess while making Lynis look like a naive idiot to anybody who knows the difference
Lynis: “And then everyone will look over and say , ‘hey that’s that great hero’, and you’ll get free drinks at taverns and free rooms…”
Garrion: Today is 23 Arodus 4708 AR.
Lynis: “And not the common room, but their good stuff.”
Tabris: “And then somebody will hire you for something that’s over your head.”
Tabris: “And you can’t refuse it since you’ll look bad.”
Garrion: 2 days pass.. the one on boat to get to Eleder and the one holed up from the storm
Marillion says to the GMs: GM Status Updated. (The listed names are GMs.)
[“garrion”]
Tabris: “And then you get yourself killed doing something stupid.”
Lynis: “Live by the sword, die by the sword.”
Vincent: Vincent has taken an Extended Rest of 8 hours.
4 hitpoints gained. Daily abilities restored. Fatigue effects cleared.
Tabris: “Except you use a bow.”
Marillion: ((live by the bow, hide behind the fighters))
Lynis: “I know, so I’ll be out of range when a swordsman tries to take me down.”
Tabris: “Yeah, that’s why I have spells.”
Tabris grins
Lynis: “Spells are overrated.”
Lynis: “Except healing spells, those are really useful.”
Garrion: When you approach the inn for a room the caretaker, a half-orc woman greets you.
Vincent: " I’ll remember that next time you want healing"
Tabris smirks
Satomi: “Good evening!~”
Tabris: Half-Orc… I’ll let Satomi do the talking for this one
Garrion: We’ll jump back a bit todo introductions
Garrion: “Allo, my names Briga. You come in to get shelter from the storm?”
Vincent: " yes, and just a place to rest for a few days.."
Satomi: “Yes, indeed! We’ve had quite a nasty time at sea, so we would love a place to stay for a few nights.”
Lynis: “Yeah! We just finished a great adventure and got lots of treasure!”
Lynis: “And we want your best rooms!”
Tabris: “Will you shut the fuck up about that already?”
Garrion: “Ahh, well you’ve come to the right place. I have some rooms availble upstairs. What size you wishing to have, a common bed or private?”
Lynis: ((to tabris) “oh right…” (leans in to whisper to the innkeeper) “I killed two dragons…”))
Vincent: " do you have one large private room or suite that would fit us all?"
Satomi: “How much are the private rooms?”
Garrion: “Oh you did did ya? I wounld be shouting that too loud, true ot not or ye not be lining to spend it if you have it.”
Lynis: “I want your best room, and send up a hand keg of your finest brew!”
Tabris leans over towards Satomi and Deenia, “You know, if we share a room it’ll lower the cost for each of us…”
Satomi: “I share if you pay a hundred percent…~”
Satomi leans toward Tab.
Tabris laughs… “Ahaha… You know what, just for you, sure.”
Garrion: “Hmm you say you just need the rooms for a couple nights?”, she does some calculations in her head.
Tabris grins
Lynis: ((FYI, she’s as selfish in bed as she is out of it))
Tabris: lol
Garrion: 0.3333333333333333333333333333333333
Tabris: ((Yeah just so you know Tab is totally going to try to score with you if you’re sharing a bed with him))
Satomi: (( I SO wish I had Fox Shape ))
Tabris: lol
Marillion: ((1/2 orc says “that will be .3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3”))
Satomi: (( So I could change into a fox and fall asleep in his bed ))
Garrion: “That will be 1 gold for 2 nights in a private room.”
Lynis: ((Yeah damn smart orc that knows about repeating decimals))
Garrion: 0.1
Lynis: ((Well you could change into your base form Sachi, see if he’s into furries heh))
Tabris: lol…
Garrion: “and 3 silver for a bed in the comon shared room.”
Marillion: ((what’s the base form? A beaver?))
Tabris tosses a gold piece onto the counter
Tabris: “Give me a key for me and her.”
Tabris points towards Satomi
Garrion: “How many of those rooms you be needing?”
Vincent glances at Lynis.. " want to split a room Deenia?"
Lynis: ((I’ll pay the inkeeper for her best room and have them beliver up a keg of thje good stuff))
Lynis: ((and Lynis is gonna get drunk in the tavern then head up to bed))
Deenia Paydar: “That would be fine with me Vincent.”
Deenia Paydar: “If you try anything I will kill you though.”
Vincent flips the keeper a gold for him and Deenia, " two keys please"
Garrion: in response to Lynis… “Well we have a suite. Is that to your liking?”
Tabris raises an eyebrow, smirking a little at Deenia’s remark
Satomi: (( Hehe, the “base” form is a humanoid fox, I’m a kitsune. ))
Marillion: ((the beaver would have been funnier ))
Vincent smirks, " unlike Tabris, I only go where I"m wanted"
Garrion: “It is 10 gold for 2 nights.”
Satomi: (( :3 ))
Tabris: ((Hey, hey, I wait for them to say yes first, come on man))
Satomi clings to flirtily to Tab’s arm.
Deenia Paydar: (( Who else is in the tavern? ))
Garrion: it is full
Deenia Paydar: (( What about the sailors and the NPCs? ))
Tabris grins, seeming quite pleased to have the beautiful Satomi clinging to him
Garrion: lots of travellers and adventuring sorts.. in fact a couple heads raise at all the talk
Tabris: “Want anything to drink?”
Vincent wil go up and stowe his extra stuff in teh room, locking it after he done.
Garrion: the sailors are stil on ship as far as you know, the NPCs wonder off in various directions
Satomi: “Do they have any sake?”
Deenia Paydar whispers: I want to see if Jask or Gelik are around to pay for their rooms
Tabris: “What’s sake?”
Satomi: “Rice wine! It’s delicious!”
Tabris: “Huh? You make wine from rice?”
Vincent lets Hurskan know when he has the power, he will heal his curse. He just may have to wait a week or two.
Satomi: “Sou desu yo!”
Tabris: “Uhh… That means yes, right?”
Satomi nods.
Garrion: Gelik said something about taking the story of the nightvoice to the Pathfinders and Jask said something about clearing his name.
Tabris: ((Oh yeah, Tab does actually have business to attend to elsewhere… He’ll do that once the storm blows over))
Deenia Paydar: (( I had something typed out but you answered my question. ))
Tabris: “I kinda doubt they have it, but maybe, since this is a major trade hub and all.”
Garrion: Sahs had a contact she was going to meet and so did Aerys.
Garrion: Sasha
Garrion: so they didn’t need rooms
Tabris: Aww, that’s too bad…
Garrion: that leaves poor old Ish
Tabris: Tab would have shared
Deenia Paydar: (( I wonder what Hurskan does. ))
Tabris: Though not with him
Tabris: He can spend all that copper and silver and get his own room
Deenia Paydar: (( Heads to the circus? ))
Tabris: lol, he’s probably off to look for a high level Cleric
Garrion: he heads off someplace else that you know nothing about
Lynis: ((Take monk levels and become a crime fighter obviously))
Tabris: rofl
Tabris: “You should try something different since you’re in a new place. You know, sample some of the local stuff that you can’t get back home.”
Tabris: “I bet I know a few drinks that you’ll like…”
Garrion: oh yeah, those guys.. Kael is here to get a room but Hurskan stayed well covered in a cloak and said he was heading for Temple Street
Tabris: ((This is totally not an attempt to get her drunk))
Tabris: ((Like, totally…))
Garrion: lol
Taragnor: Alright so I guess we can say the old characters part ways and do thier thing?
Taragnor: And we can get to the next adventure (and introducing my new character?)
Garrion: about monk crimefighter… that was good, you get a Swashbucking card
Satomi: “Ufufu, hontou desu? But I can’t be the only one to drink…”
Taragnor: hehe awesome.
Garrion: 55
Tabris: “Oh don’t worry, I’ll be drinking right along with you.”
Tabris grins
Taragnor: hehe wow, that’s a pretty cool one.
Satomi discreetly makes sure to stay behind the curve on drinking…
Tabris discreetly tries to stay behind Satomi…
Garrion: make a bluff roll
Tabris: lol
Garrion: vs tabs sense motive
Vincent comes back down and sits by the others, ordering a spiced rum drink.
Satomi: (( I can totally see this playing out as a focused battle of wits ))
Taragnor: lol. yeah.
Tabris: Tabris Sense Motive Check: 5
Tabris: Yeah she wins

Taragnor: ((heh guess none of you are getting drunk))
Garrion: you are both ok for now… but tab is feeling it more
Vincent leans back and relaxes, happy to be back in a city.
Tabris: “Heheh… What do you think, Chelaxian alcohol isn’t too bad right?”
Tabris: “Go on, have some more!”
Garrion: Satomi is putting on a good act though making atb think she is getting pretty drunk
Marillion says to the GMs: GM Status Updated. (The listed names are GMs.)
[“garrion”]
Sachi: “Aaaaah…~ Is very tasty! Pour me another one!~”
Satomi: “Aaaaah…~ Is very tasty! Pour me another one!~”

Satomi: “Uwaaa…”
Tabris demonstrates by downing his mug in one big gulp
Garrion: both make a fort save. satomi at -1 and tab at -4

+1 vs Mind-Affecting, +1 vs Compulsion, +1 vs Poison and Drugs ()
Tabris: Awww yeah
Vincent sits back and is amused by their antics.
Lynis sits down with Tab and Satomi.
Tabris: ((Vincent can tell that Tab is totally trying to get her drunk on purpose))
Garrion: let me double chech the HP usage.. still getting used to it
Lynis: “Hey, I could use some company.. I got this hand keg of the best stuff in the house….”
Tabris: It says you can reroll a d20 with it
Garrion: reroll a d20 good
Garrion: ok, deduct 1 from your total on token notes
Lynis: “Lets have a drinking contest!”
Garrion: tab is starting to slur a little
Tabris: “It ain’t a contest at this point, me and her have already had too much for that.”
Satomi keeps trying to distract Tab from what they’re drinking by discussing art and poetry, going off on odd tangents…
Tabris: “Jus’ let us keep goin’ on our own…”
Lynis: “Oh come on, you haven’t had too much unitl you pass out!”
Lynis: “Tjhat’s the rule!”
Satomi: “Ara, I wouldn’t dream of drinking myself into a stupor down here… That’s simply unrefined.”
Lynis: “Lets get really drunk and then play a game of darts!”
Tabris: “You go right ahead… I’m letting Satomi sample some new and exotic beverages.”
Tabris orders another round for himself and Satomi
Lynis: “So what’s Ara mean anyway?”
Garrion: you still goig or calling it good?
Tabris: Tab’s gonna try to get her to go one more round, lol
Lynis pours himself another round from his hand keg and joins them.
Deenia Paydar takes her belongings up to the room and deposits them on the remaining bed.
Satomi: “Ahaha… Just a thing I say sometimes. It doesn’t really mean anything…”
Tabris: “Less talk, more drink!”
Garrion: CHA vs WILL if she hesitates
Satomi: “Ufufu~ One more… Anything else would have to be upstairs…”
Lynis: “Chug Chug Chug!”
Tabris: “Heheh… I’m not against that either…”
Lynis downs his tankard.
Garrion: take that back
Satomi: “What about you, Lynis…?”
Garrion: Diplomacy vs WILL
Lynis: Die Roll (1d20): 5 Save: 4 Stat Bonus: 2 Save Bonus: 0 Temp Bonus: 4 TOTAL: 15 Lynis: Fortitude Save: 15

Deenia Paydar she then returns to the main room and looks around for anyone that has stained fingers. ((Looking for a Herbalist))
Tabris: lol she said she was going to drink one more
Tabris: So she’s willing
Deenia Paydar: Deenia Paydar Perception Check: 23
Satomi: (( totally should try and get you both drunk and get you into compromising situations upstairs. ))
Tabris: lol
Lynis: ((You could probably trick Lynis inot doing something stupid))
Garrion: Deenia looks around at the other patrons as thr carrouses the room… she finds many rough types.
Tabris: “And this time make sure you drink the whole thing…”
Tabris grins at Satomi
Satomi giggles.
Satomi: (( I did ))
Lynis: (( he’s also totally unknowingly cockblocking you, cause he’s just a naive kid ))
Tabris: ((lol yeah I know))
Garrion: She finds a few possible subjects.
Deenia Paydar wanders over to the one that looks the oldest, thinking he may be the most wise in horticulture.
Deenia Paydar: “This seat taken?”
Tabris stands up a bit unsteadily and grabs Satomi’s hand, trying to lead her away from the bar, “Come on, let’s do some of that upstairs stuff, we can have a few things sent up.”
Garrion: “Yes miss?”
Tabris: “Have fun, kid.”
Lynis: “Hey don’t tell me you’re quitting already!”
Garrion: “Oh no, I’m here alone. But I don’t have maney for anything if your offering.”
Deenia Paydar sits down beside the man.
Satomi: “You gotta drink yours too!”
Deenia Paydar: “I will pay you never mind that.”
Deenia Paydar waves her hand calling out to the bar maid.
Tabris: “Of course, of course…”
Deenia Paydar: “I will have a tea nd whatever this gentleman would like.”
Tabris grabs his mug and downs the contents, grinning at Satomi confidently as he tries to lead her upstairs…
Lynis: “Yeah Tab, come on man.. don’t tell me you’re already too drunk… you’ve hardly had anything at all!”
Satomi finishes her last drink… Holding out as much as she can, though Tab is probably watching her like a hawk if he’s still capable of that…
Garrion: “Uh, I’ll have a mupute.”
Deenia Paydar: (( when the tea arrives she pays for it ))
Garrion: ok, an other set of opposed checks
Deenia Paydar: “So I have a favor to ask of you.”
Garrion: “What you need ma’am?”
Tabris: Tabris Sense Motive Check: 4
Deenia Paydar pulls out her journal and shows the man pictures inside of some plants
Tabris: lol damn
Garrion: 10
Deenia Paydar: “Have you seen any of these before? If so, do you know where I can find them?”
Deenia Paydar places a gold coin in front of her just out of reach of the man
Garrion: “Ahh, you looking to make some concoctions are you? You can find a variety of the things you need in Lower Harbor. The peddlers there have a large assortment though you may have to shop around a bit.”
Satomi: Satomi Bluff Check: 11
Deenia Paydar slides over the gold coin
Garrion: “They will be closed up like a clam with the coming storm, but once it passed you should be good to go.”
Lynis: ((heh… guess Tab is gonna keel over first ))
Deenia Paydar: “Are you hungry?”
Garrion: ok, 2 saves tab to one satomi

Satomi: Oooo I’m gonna mote it!
Satomi: 4
Tabris: lol
Satomi: 13!
Tabris: Still not great after you’ve had a bunch
Garrion: satmoi starts to sway… and she catches herself as she start to topple over
Deenia Paydar whispers: ENWorld has a PDF for drinking for d20 they also have bar sports
Tabris: “Heheh, here, let me help you…”
Tabris helps her steady herself and starts leading her upstairs
Satomi: ((Tien) “Please don’t worry, Tab-san… I am still in control of this luxury yacht!”))
Lynis helps Tab by getting Satomi on the other side and helping to support her.
Lynis: “Yeah we better get her back to the room…”
Tabris: “I got this Lynis, you just stay down here and have a good time.”
You whisper to Deenia Paydar: cool, i may have to look into that
Lynis: “Don’t worry, it’s no problem, there’ll be plenty of time to drink. I gotta watch over my good adventuring buddies!”
Tabris: “Nah, I’m sure somebody down here can have that drinking contest with you.”
Lynis: “Not to mention, you don’t look so good yourself.”
Tabris: “I’ll come back down and join up with you later.”
Tabris: “Bah, I’m fine, just leave me to it.”
Satomi: “Lyni-san, you such a nice boy! You gonna get all the girls downstairs.~”
Tabris: “Haha, yeah man, I’m sure you can find a few cute girls who’ll dig your stories.”
Tabris: “Just leave this to me.”
Lynis: “Nah, don’t worry about it man. Your good pal Lynis is here for you.”
Lynis: “There’ll be plenty of time for girls later. I’m practically rich now!”
Lynis: “I mean we’re all rich…. what do you want to spend your share on?”
Tabris: “You gotta strike while the iron is hot man… Don’t let the opportunites slip away when you can grab ’em.”
Garrion: the evening news… boy raped and robbed after telling all about his riches….
Satomi probably gets groped right after that.
Tabris: lol yeah
Tabris: And yes, yes she does
Lynis: “Yeah… I was thinking of opening my own archery shop!”
Marillion: ((tabris must have been drunker than he thought to mistake Lynis for Satomi….))
Tabris: lol
Lynis: ((lol))
Satomi: ((Hahahaha))
Lynis: ((Well they bopth do have similar builds…))
Tabris: “Yeah you know I bet some of the guys hanging out in here could help you with that, you should work on making some connections.”
Deenia Paydar whispers: http://www.enworld.org/forum/subscriber-content/295993-tournaments-fairs-taverns-2-drinking.html
Tabris hasn’t stopped trying to lead Satomi upstairs this whole time as he tries to get Lynis to bug off
Garrion: ok, so everyone retires up to their rooms, you all get a card for the roleplay
Lynis: “Yeah a lot of people seemed interested when i was telling em how we made so much money.”
Marillion is disconnected.
Satomi: (( oh, if he tries anything without permission I’m most definitely gonna change into a kitsune and bite him in the junk ))
Tabris: lol
Lynis: ((lol))
Garrion: the next day lynis is nowhere to be found…
Marillion has connected.
Vincent: ((I want to see that))
Lynis: ((ahahaha))
Tabris: Nah Tab at least has enough decency to not do anything like that
Tabris: But he figures plying her with alcohol will make her more willing
Vincent: (( left in the gutter sans loot ))
Satomi: (( Happy endings are still extra ))
Tabris: lol damn
Taragnor: Nice Lynis actually ended up in a dumpster somewehe. lol.
Tabris: ((That’s fine, Tab has money =D ))
Taragnor: how much you gonna charge him Sachi? Remember he is drunk :P
Tabris: lol
Marillion says to the GMs: GM Status Updated. (The listed names are GMs.)
[“garrion”]
Garrion: but you are approached (seperately) by several people… both familiar and not
Tabris: Hey he paid for her room and bought all her drinks
Satomi: How much does he got?
Taragnor: Give him the old Champaigne Room treatment :P
Tabris: That should totally count towards the charge
Taragnor: Where you bleed him for tons of money and don’t put out.
Vincent gets up, prays and gets ready. He heads down for some food, then assuming the weather is good, will head over to his chruch to check in.
Lynis is lying face down in an alley somewhere.
Garrion: the drinks added up to 5 gold
Tabris: Well you know he at least has what he got as his share from the island =P
Garrion: the storm rages on fo the day and you hole up in the inn and your rooms… now trhat you have time to look around….
Satomi: (( And the total charge depends on the services rendered… ))
Garrion: one sec while a i switch books
Vincent: ((heh, then I guess I stay in ))
Tabris: ((Tab wants full service, obviously))
Vincent: (( oil change?))
Tabris: lol
Taragnor: ((To satomi, that just means she puts on a glove and unenthusiastically uses her hand) :P))
Tabris: rofl
Satomi: (( ahahaha ))
Taragnor: ((If you paid less, she’d use a gauntlet instead of a leather glove))
Vincent: (( dont’ worry, I got remove disease to counter anything Tabris gives ya… ))
Garrion: Set back from the Portside docks in a narrow alley facing the harbor is a two-story mud-brick building covered in plain whitewash. Upon its front door hangs a carved wooden sign that reads “The Sargava Club.” The bottom f loor is split between a shop and a tavern, while the top f loor serves as an inn. The Sargava Club is owned by a feisty and outspoken half-orc named Briga.
Satomi: (( I dunno how much prostitution costs in Pathfinder, I didn’t really look all that hard ))
Taragnor: ((You know it’s be pretty awesome if my new character was the one who offed Lynis) :P))
Garrion: The Sargava Club is one of the few places inside the wall where prejudice is not tolerated, and Briga demands that all who enter her establishment treat each other as equals. The bulk of the ground f loor is dedicated to a small but well-stocked pawnshop specializing in adventuring equipment, information, maps, and magical items. Those serious about launching expeditions may also use the club to contact and hire native guides. A modest tavern occupies the remainder of the ground f loor. It serves reasonably priced local fare—mostly fish—along with beer and a sickly sweet but potent Zenj liquor distilled from pineapple and sugarcane called mupute.
Taragnor: ((Well since it’s D&D, it depends on the level of the prostitute))
Taragnor: ((it is a level based system after all))
Marillion: ((I think a low level would be worth more….))
Taragnor: ((Nah man, the higher ones got skills, and this is a world with remove disease))
Tabris: I think I found it, lol
Tabris: There’s an entry for "Companion
Garrion: wel experiance does not mean worn out… it means very skilled
Tabris: It says 5 cp to 10 gp
Taragnor: 5 cp.. damn.
Vincent: ((heh, guess I was drinking Mupute.. not rum ))
Taragnor: guess that’s like the half-orc ones…
Tabris: lol yeah
Garrion: no, those are goblins, lol
Satomi: (( Hey, half-orcs have feelings too ))
Taragnor: hehe… or maybe troglodytes.
Satomi: (( eww I’m gonna pretend goblins don’t ))
Tabris: Hahahaha
Vincent: (( gobins are always 2 for 1 ))
Garrion: ok, as you hang out at the inn… a wet and drenched Gelik enters….
Tabris: I’m guessing this is after Tab and Satomi have sobered up, lol
Satomi: “Ehehe… You want me get out nice scented oil? Real intimate massage…?~”
Satomi: “This a professional technique…~ I pay pretty good coin, go to school to learn it…”
Tabris: “Yeah, I want the full course with all the perks… I’m always willing to pay for the best.”
Vincent: " hey Gelik…. so what’s new in town? I"m sure you know everything by now"
Taragnor: ((It’d be awesome if it turned out to be scented lamp oil, and then she blackmails him to pay her not to set him on fire))
Tabris: lol
Satomi: (( Nah, see if I do that I can’t keep milking him later ))
Garrion: “There you are. I went to the chapter house yesterday and told them about your discoveries on the island. They said they needed proof and my word was not good enough, hrmph. If you take the log over there it would veryfy my story and they said they would pay you for it.”
Taragnor: ((hehe yeah))
Taragnor: ((You’d probably wait for him to get richer first))
Satomi: (( That’s like the difference between NE and CE ))
Garrion: “They are also interested in hearing more about this temple you found.”
Tabris: “You said the magic word, that being pay.”
Tabris: “Let’s go.”
Satomi: “Oooh, we would love to!”
Vincent: " sure, I"m pretty much done reading it.. I can take it over after the storm dies off"
Garrion: “oh there is no rush, you should let the rain pass. We wouln’t want the log to get damaged any more than it is.”
Deenia Paydar: “Well, that would be one way to have the thing translated. Although, I wouldn’t sell it to them.”
Satomi charges a special 5 gp rate, since Tab is a fire-forged adventuring companion… Normally this is a premium maneuver. or that’s what she’s telling Tab.
Vincent: " I can translate easy enough, with enough time"
Tabris happily pays the rate and enjoys himself
Deenia Paydar: “Yes, but the Pathfinder Society has means to not just translate, but also discern hidden meanings in the text.”
Tabris: “Plus they’re paying us for it.”
Satomi: (( I hope you’re aware I’ll gladly continue to take your money the rest of the campaign ))
Garrion: “Good enough. I’ll see you soon.” and he gives you directions before heading out.
Tabris: “Just let them have it.”
Vincent shrugs, " I suppose"
Tabris: ((lol as long as you keep giving Tab what he wants he has no qualms))
Satomi: “Hidden meanings?”
Tabris: ((That’s what gold is for after all))
Deenia Paydar: “Yes, but if they pay us for it, what is to say they leave us out of what is in the log?”
Tabris shrugs
Tabris: “Doesn’t matter that much to me as long as I get paid.”
Satomi nods…
Deenia Paydar: “Would you rather have 500 gold now or 50,000 gold later?”
Garrion: ((you have time to translate on the ship and here in the inn during storm))
Tabris: “I can’t buy food and fun with a promise of future gold.”
Vincent: (( ok, anything interesting?))
Satomi: “Sou… I’m a really curious person… Wanna be in on anything they get outta that.”
Tabris: “I mean at the very least we gotta get a downpayment…”
Garrion: most of it is meaningless, but grants you +2 to all Knowledge chaecks
Tabris: “You don’t make a long term deal without getting some of the payment up front.”
Satomi: Oooo awesome!
Vincent: nice
Deenia Paydar: “I say we make a etching and transfer to a different journal. Sell them the book with a clause they tell us anything they find and if it is what I think it is we go with them.”
Garrion: it takes 3 days to translate and a full day for anyone else to read after that
Satomi nods.
Satomi is definitely gonna read it
Tabris: “Works for me I guess…”
Garrion: vincent is translating or deenia?
Vincent: Vincent Knowledge (religion) Check: 24
Vincent: I am
Satomi: “You gotta idea? Think it something awesome?”
Tabris: While they’re working on translating the book and reading it Tab will slip off to take care of some side business
Garrion: so vincent gets it done after 3 days and hands it over to whoever wants to take the time to read it
Deenia Paydar: “I think it is a treasure map of some sort. Whether it is knowledge or gold, it doesn’t matter.”
Satomi rubs her hands together excitedly.
Garrion: ok, some time later… Jask enters…..
Satomi: “Yess… The two most valuable things…~”
Garrion: “Hello my friends.”
Tabris: ((Is this while I’m gone doing my thing? lol))
Vincent: " hello"
Satomi: “Ohayou gozaimasu!”
Deenia Paydar: “Hello Jask. So what were you doing in this storm?”
Garrion: “I can’t thank you enough for the information you retreived for me. My name has been cleared and those truely guilty shall be brought to justice.”
Satomi: ((or whatever time of day it is))
Garrion: it is mid day
Tabris: “No sweat man. I figured if you were wanted by Cheliax it had to be bogus.”
Garrion: ((it was the sargavan government, he was captured in cheliax after escaping and was being brought back))
Vincent: " that is great news"
Tabris: ((Oh right, lol))
Tabris: ((Either way Tab is generally distrustful of authority))
Garrion: “Anyway, you have my gratitude. Anything you need just let me know. Also, the government is interested in your discoveries on the Shiv. They wanted me to ask you to come by and talk about it some time.”
Tabris: “Heh, they think we left somebody behind for them to tax or something?”
Vincent: " we may stop by sometime"
Satomi: “Sou yo. Comparing notes may be helpful…”
Deenia Paydar: (( Let me guess, Sasha went to see her AA sponsor ))
Tabris: ((lol probably…))
Vincent: heh
Garrion: “No, no. It has something to do with thestories thathave been circulating. They have heard through the network that there is a buzz in teh city about ancient ruins there.”
Tabris: ((Wait no, Aerys was the drunk… Tab helped her kick the habit though))
Deenia Paydar: “Ancient ruins?”
Tabris: “You mean that old temple?”
Vincent: " probably means that temple we found"
Tabris: “Was just some abandoned temple to some snake god or whatever… Who cares?”
Tabris: “Didn’t even have any good loot in it.”
Deenia Paydar: “Why would they care abou the temple? They are too afraid to head there any way.”
Garrion: “Yes, there seems to be great interest about it. They just want your input.”
Tabris scratches his head…
Garrion: “They wish to know why the other factions are all riled up.”
Deenia Paydar: “What factions?”
Tabris: “Must be some legend about the Shiv or something…”
Satomi: “Who is Riley?”
Tabris laughs at Satomi’s joke
Satomi stares blankly at Tab.
Vincent: " tell em to watch out for those damn Gibbering Mouthers" ( or was that the other place?)
Satomi: “I… I s-say something funny…?”
Garrion: “Well the main two rigth now are the Aspis Consortium and the Pathfinders. There is a little coming from some others but not as much.”
Tabris: “Ahaha… Oh, you don’t know that word? Riled up, you know, it’s like… uhh… really agitated…”
Satomi: “Ohhh…”
Tabris: “Well the Pathfinders have offered us money, dunno what the other guys hope to get out of it.”
Tabris: “But they’re gonna have to pony up.”
Garrion: ((the money was for the ship’s log, nothing else was offered or mentioned yet))
Tabris: ((Oh, true… But information isn’t free either way))
Vincent: ((we abot done, or want to intro the noobs?))
Satomi: (( Very yes ))
Tabris: ((I need to be getting to bed soon))
Garrion: i was wanting to get them in… we will fast forward….
Marillion: ((noop would like an intro))
Taragnor: heh yup.
Satomi: I’m cool with that~
Garrion: you have about 2 months in town to shop, sell, trade, gather info, etc… during this time you are approached by several people which we will cover in game and a couple adventurers staying at the inn approach you offering to assit after having heard of your tales…..
Vincent: (( we got groupies already?))
Marillion: ((I am no groupy, I heard you had an easy fox women in the group…..))
Garrion: You also work at translating Ieana/Yarzoth’s notes but there are some points that you just don’t get… you will need to seek out sagely advice
Tabris: ((She’s spoken for already, sorry dude))
Garrion: be sure to read up on my entry on the site about Eleder.. i have noted several locations of interest there
Vincent: (( damn, homework))
Marillion: ((one glove is spoken for yea… there is still one more))
Tabris: lol
Garrion: lol
Garrion: who gets the tongue?
Marillion: ((i don’t want it…))
Marillion: ((dirty))
Marillion: 1/2 orc bar keep?
Satomi: (( Hey… I only advertise to a select clientele… ))
Marillion: free room and board
Satomi: (( Or Satomi does, at least… ))
Vincent: (( your guy ready as well, T ?))
Taragnor: yeah
Taragnor: I’m here.
Taragnor: How we doing this intro?
Taragnor: Do I walk up to them? Or…
Garrion: you are at the inn
Tabris: Apparently you heard how awesome we are and decided to join us
Marillion: ((you hear the crash of a dragon falling from the sky, then I walk in and …))
Marillion: ((ok, so the next stage of the adventure they are off to explore the temple?))
Garrion: their repi\utation as surp\vivors of the shiv has spread… you could approach wishing to hear more about it
Garrion: or you could be intersted in the ruins like the other factions
Vincent: vincent is an average looking human with short spikey blonde hair and greyish eyes. He is armed in scale mail, shield and scimitar. A symbol of Sarenrae hangs from his neck, and is on his shield as well.
Bathas grabs a drink and walks up to what appears to be the leader of their group as best I can tell….
Marillion: ((i’m interested in the ruins and offer my services))
Bathas: ((Am I with Marillion? Or are we separate?))
Garrion: however you eant
Marillion: ((what’s your class Bathas?))
Bathas: Bathas Sense Motive Check: 2
Garrion: want
Bathas: ((okay I have no idea who your leader is))
Marillion: ((if it makes sense, we will go with it. I am a magister))
Satomi: (( Neither do we ))
Bathas: ((Well I’d probably talk to the strongest looking one of you))
Tabris: lol
Marillion: I walk over to Tabris (because he is the most outspoken)
Bathas: ((Since he’s basically a barbarian type))
Tabris: Yeah Tabris is the most loud and boisterous one
Tabris: He’s also got a big sword on his back
Marillion: “Greetings Warrior”
Tabris glances up at Marillion, sizing him up…
Bathas: ((Heh, well I guess I’ll figure Marillion and I are separate for now, since Idunno how we’d know each other))
Bathas: ((So I’ll introduce myself after him I guess))
Garrion: ok
Bathas: ((maybe I was just sitting there drinking and sizing them up))
Marillion: “Allow me to introduce myself, I am Marillion Swift, the assistant Magister of this fine city.”
Satomi is dangling from the vanguard’s side, prodding him into paying for her meal…
Garrion: it can be at seperate times… yu have several weeks
Marillion: It has come to my Masters attention that you and your fellow may be exploring some ruins in the near feature. I thought perhaps that I may offer my expertise in this matter
Tabris: “The name’s Tabris. Dunno what you’d call me exactly. I do sword work for money and I know a little magic on the side. Didn’t attend an academy though.”
Vincent: " heh, I don’t know.. I think we have had enough of ruins for a while"
Marillion: ((Marillion is tall, slender with dark hair and share features, very well dressed and walks with confidence …. with maybe a little aristocratic air to him))
Tabris is tall, lean, and athletic, with blonde hair and blue eyes. His most prominent gear are his chain shirt and a well made Greatsword that he wears on his back
Garrion says to the GMs: Rolling 2d100+0: 78
Marillion: “I did attend an academy, and I tell you that you did not miss anything, just a bunch of book worms that think they are better than you”
Tabris smirks
Tabris: “Yeah, that’s what I hear.”
Tabris: “And yeah, we found some ruins on the Shiv, although they weren’t anything all that special if you ask me… Didn’t even have any decent loot…”
Marillion: “I’m being rude” (introduces himself to everyone, bowing respectfully to the women first"
Garrion says to the GMs: Rolling 1d100+0: 71
Tabris: “Snake bitch seemed interested in them though. She wrote down a ton of notes.”
Marillion: “snake bitch you say?”
Tabris: “Yeah, a serpentfolk, I believe that’s the technical term.”
Satomi appears to be, and is as far as anyone knows, a beautiful young human woman from the faraway continent of Tian Xia, with a light tan complexion, black hair, and blue eyes… She usually dresses in kimono or yukata when she’s not wearing armor and carries herself with a refined air, though her Common speech sounds rough because of her heavy accent and lack of familiarity with it.
Marillion: “snack bitch guets the meaning across as well as serpentfolk”
Vincent nods, " Vincent, Fire Priest of Sarenrae"
Marillion: snake not snack
Satomi: “I am Satomi Fukumiya, a traveling businesswoman! It’s a pleasure to meet you, sir!”
Satomi bows.
Marillion: “Greetings Vincent”
Marillion: “My dear, the pleasure is of course mine”
Garrion says to the GMs: Rolling 1d100+0: 100
Garrion says to the GMs: Rolling 1d100+0: 46
Marillion: ((pays complete attention to her for 3 seconds, then moves onto the next person doing the same))
Tabris: “Anyway yeah, I think somebody’s got her notes somewhere, if you’re interested then maybe we could work out a deal. Seems like a lot of people are interested though.”
Garrion says to the GMs: Rolling 1d100+0: 93
Garrion says to the GMs: Rolling 1d100+0: 89
Tabris: ((Ahahaha, dude, I just got the most awesome Swashbuckling card ever))
Garrion says to the GMs: Rolling 1d100+0: 70
Marillion: "I assure you, a very limited number of people will have my expertise within 200 miles of this place, except of course my Master, but Magister Harmon is tool ….. advanced to travel these days)
Marillion: too (not tool). (typing like a tard today)
Tabris: Tabris Knowledge (arcana) Check: 25
Tabris: ((Have I heard of this guy?))
Tabris: ((Magister Harmon, I mean))
Garrion: harmon?
Garrion: not tabris, he is not from here
Garrion: Vincent has… he is a sage that the church turns to from time to time
Tabris: “Hmm… Well I think Vincent said something about us needing a sage, didn’t you Vincent?”
Garrion: he is not really tied to the church but he works with them in times of need.
Tabris: “If you’re good with obscure snake bitch lore then maybe you can help.”
Marillion: “hmm, I may need to freshen up on my snake bitch lore….. but I’m sure i’ll manage”
Tabris chuckles, he seems pleased that Marillion isn’t turned off by his choice of words and doesn’t seem to act like the typical arrogant academy mage
Tabris: “Sit down and have a drink then.”
Marillion: ((Marillion is very anti academy))
Tabris: ((Tabris is self taught and a spontaneous caster so he doesn’t really care much for Wizards))
Satomi: “Yes, Tabris-san! Please order us an appetizer as well…”
Garrion: (( you have much in common then))
Marillion: “sounds fantastic (orders hard wisky)”. “you probably thought I would order tea didn’t you?”
Tabris: “Sure thing, babe.~”
Satomi casually makes a request of him as if she were the business owner…
Vincent: Vincent Knowledge (local) Check: 19
Tabris: “Maybe if you were a more typical Wizard type, but you don’t seem typical.”
Marillion: “not that I don’t like tea….”
Tabris places the food order for Satomi as requested
Garrion: what were yu checking Vincent?
Satomi: “Ehehe… I try and not let preconceptions cloud my sight…”
Marillion: ((Marillion now things Satomi is in charge))
Vincent: of that dude
Tabris: ((lol that’s probably not too far off at this point))
Marillion: harmon?
Garrion: oh, you knowe about him, not alot but familier name and basic role
Vincent: and of the magisters in general, what are their aims, modivations.. stuff like taht
Satomi: “And I do enjoy tea.~ A cup of sake before a business meeting, though, helps smooth things over… Not very big selection here, though…”
Vincent: (( I needs to be going soon))
Satomi: (( Me too, I got class in the morning ))
Bathas: ((After they seem reasonably settled, I’ll approach em))
Marillion: “I Have not tried the sake herb but would love to some day”
Garrion: they are a mage that pulls from both arcane and divine sources… they usually specialize in a certain field but branch out to cover any number of other types of magic
Vincent: (( no one cares about Bathas.. we can hold him off til next time))
Tabris: “I still don’t see how you get wine from rice or whatever…”
Bathas: “Greetings.”
Marillion: “i hope you are not applying for the Magister position”
Tabris glances up at Bathas, sizing him up just like he did with Marillion
Marillion: “your timing would be most…. unfortunate”
Tabris: “Man, we’re popular today.”
Bathas: ((Bathas btw is a Shoanti, like Hurksan, with long blond hair and some beard stubble))
Satomi: “Is very delicious.~”
Bathas: ((He wears a chain shirt and carries a gladius on his belt))
Satomi crosses her legs.
Satomi: “Greetings, sir!”
Garrion: it is not neccessarily the same day, could be different days or even weeeks
Vincent: " seems we are holding court today"
Bathas: ((He’s strong and physically capable looking))
Tabris: ((lol T said his character was watching us and stuff so it’s probably around the same time))
Vincent: (( spartacus?))
Bathas: “I hear you’re the heroes of the Shiv.”
Tabris: “Yeah, we totally kicked its ass. No big.”
Vincent: " don’t know if heros is quite right, more like survivors"
Marillion: “I see I am in the right company if i am already considered a hero”
Marillion: ((to no one in particular))
Satomi: “Ehehe… More castaway than hero, really. Manage to turn a profit in gold, but lose a lot of people… Not come out too good.”
Bathas smiles.
Tabris: “Not much of a profit if you ask me…”
Bathas: “Profit and survival is all one can hope for in this world.”
Marillion: ((how old is Lynis?))
Bathas: ((heh Lynis is gone, he died in an alley))
Tabris: ((Lynis? Who’s that? Did we have somebody named Lynis with us?))
Marillion: ((ha ha ha))
Satomi: ((Aw, I’d have at least looked for him))
Garrion: haha, you are not sure what happened to him, he just went away
Satomi: ((Though it’s probably too late :())
Marillion: ((note, don’t dring with Tabris, die of bleeding ass syndrom))
Tabris: lol
Tabris: That’s what he gets for trying to cockblock me man
Bathas: “The name’s Bathas Wintershield. Sellsword.”
Tabris: “Ahh, excellent, a fellow mercenary.”
Satomi: (( We’re probably gonna find him all the way at the end of the adventure path living on an island with one of every cute monster girl in the bestiary ))
Tabris: “We could use another sword arm or two since Gajeel got eaten by that weird gibbering thing and Hurskan got turned into a bat.”
Bathas nods and sits down.
Marillion: “how fasinating”
Bathas: “Adventuring is a tough business.”
Tabris: “Yeah, especially when you’re marooned on that fucking hellhole that was the Shiv.”
Marillion: “what happend after Hurskan got turned into a bat?”
Vincent: " I do plan on fixing that bat thing, once I am able"
Satomi: “Was very pretty scenery sometimes! Very nasty locals. Except for mephit captain.”
Tabris: “Ehh not much really, that was in the temple… I guess he activated some ancient curse or something.”
Bathas takes a swallow of his rum.
Tabris: “Ahaha, yeah, the mephit dude was cool.”
Tabris: “Too bad he was totally loopy.”
Marillion: “is this the same temple we will be returning too?”
Bathas: “I was looking for some new employment. I assume I’ll get an even share of the treasure we find?”
Marillion: “there seems to be some interesting things to see there”
Vincent: " not likely"
Tabris: “I dunno, like I said there wasn’t really all that much in there, unless we missed something…”
Tabris: “I mean I guess you could go find the gibbering thing that ate Gajeel if you really wanted to.”
Satomi: “We still formulating a plan. Gather information, make inquiry.”
Marillion: “what happend to your friend that got turned into a bat?”
Tabris shrugs
Tabris: “I dunno, he’s around here somewhere.”
Satomi: “I think he try to find cleric…”
Tabris: “Probably begging for a cleric to fix him.”
Vincent: " last I heard he wandered off"
Satomi: “Is what I’d do at least.”
Marillion: “I’m not sure how many clerics speak bat…. perhaps a druid could help….”
Bathas lauighs sardonically.
Tabris: “Sucks that you gotta rely on a bunch of stiffasses for healing magic, sometimes I just need to get fixed without any questions being asked, you know?”
Vincent: (( kept mumbling about getting some wonderful toys))
Bathas: “If he has the gold, I’m sure he’ll find the help he seeks, or a quick death.”
Tabris: “Well he wasn’t totally bat, just part.”
Tabris: “Like he was still mostly human, just he had wings for arms and I think he kinda scrunched up a little.”
Vincent: " just sort of looked like one.. ears and the like"
Satomi: “Yeah… Sort of bat wing arms, real hard to hold weapon.”
Marillion: “hmmm… like a were-bat? It’s going to be very hard to make friends like that”
Bathas shakes his head.
Tabris: “Kinda like a manbat, I guess.”
Bathas: “If he can’t hold a weapon, he’s better off dead.”
Tabris: “Or a bat man… Something like that.”
Satomi: “Better off without curse than dead, though.”
Satomi: “Harder to come back from the dead…”
Bathas laughs at Satomi’s comment.
Tabris: “Anyway, Bathas, you with anybody else right now? We got like half this city interested in us for whatever reason, it’d help to know that you weren’t hired by some group to keep tabs on us and such.”
Bathas: “Right you are… and generally when they do come back, they’re a lot less pretty than when they wnet into the grave.”
Garrion: give me a know local or diplomacy to gather info
Vincent: Vincent Knowledge (local) Check: 13
Bathas: “If I was a spy, Do you think I’d tell you?”
Bathas grins.
Tabris: Tabris Diplomacy Check: 22
Tabris: “Ehh, good point.”
Vincent: Vincent Diplomacy Check: 14
Marillion: ((I would like to use my sources as well to know if anyone is after them, I’m local after all ) can I take 20 or do I need to roll?))
Tabris shrugs, “Well, whatever they’re offering you, if you’re with us instead then you get first pick of the treasure, so it’s probably a better deal.”
Bathas: “First pick of the treasure? Really? I’ll hold you to that you know.”
Garrion: The notes from Yarzoth are written in Aklo which none of you know but you can cast comprehend to read it, you do that that right?
Tabris: “Well not like first pick out of us, I mean first pick as opposed to it having to pass through some other faction before it gets to you.”
Vincent: yes, I can
Marillion: ((if we buy a scroll, I can cast the comprehend languages no problem))
Tabris: Heh I have a scroll
Bathas: “I see… and how does treasure distribution work with your group?”
Vincent: (( I got it in my head))
Garrion: ok, this takes some time but you get it done it will take several castings
Marillion: “this man is a true sell-word, I like him”
Tabris: We split the gold even, the rest we kinda just see if anybody wants it and if not then we sell it off and split the gold from that."
Garrion: once translated thoughthey are cryptic.. linguistics check
Satomi: “Yes… Want to make sure most useful things go to people who use them best, ne?”
Vincent: ((not trained in it))
Satomi: “Make it easier to get more and more things…~”
Tabris: ((Me neither))
Satomi rubs her hands together gleefully for a moment.
Garrion: after the ship log it takes 3 days to translate the notes
Tabris: “Heh heh, indeed…”
Bathas: “Sure… I’m happy enough to take most of my reward in coin. I find it useful to procure other things I need.”
Tabris: “Yeah, that’s usually how I see it too. Most of the stuff we’ve come across so far has been junk anyway.”
Marillion is disconnected.
Tabris: “I just need supplies and I can take care of the enchanted sword angle myself. The rest is supplemental.”
Marillion has connected.
Garrion: look slike you need to seek out assistance then… your know diplomacy check from before lets you do that…. for a fee of 10 gp
Bathas nods.
Satomi: “Information sometimes even better than coin.~”
Tabris: Marillion trained in Linguistics?
Vincent: (( knock it out of group loot I guess?))
Bathas: “If it’s information on good places to spend coin perhaps.”
Marillion says to the GMs: GM Status Updated. (The listed names are GMs.)
[“garrion”]
Bathas: ((looks to Satomi) “So I couldn’t help but overhear that you’re a businesswoman… and a rather exotic one at that.”))
Garrion: Once deciphered, Yarzoth’s notes prove quite complete. They detail the Zura cult’s birth in the fabled city of Saventh-Yhi, their exile to Smuggler’s Shiv, and their planned return to the lost city. According to the notes, however, Saventh-Yhi was hidden behind powerful magical wards, preventing the banished cultists from simply returning home. Instead, they planned to journey to a smaller Azlanti outpost called Tazion, wherein they could use something called “the pillars of light” to finally make their way into Saventh-Yhi. Thus, while the notes do not reveal the location of Saventh-Yhi itself, they do accurately describe the site of Tazion.
Satomi: “O-overhear…?”
Satomi shoots Tabris a sidelong glare…
Bathas: “While you were talking to him.”
Tabris: “Don’t know where you heard something like that…”
Bathas looks to Marillon.
Garrion: K: geography?
Vincent: ((heh, no))
Marillion: ((is anyone else getting booted off of Maptool?))
Tabris: ((lol nope))
Tabris: ((Not me))
Satomi: (( I’m not ))
Marillion: ((like 5 times now…))
Garrion: just you
Tabris: ((Pathfinders probably know where to find Tazion))
Marillion: ((my mac has like a terabyte of ram…. I have to figure out this page file))
Bathas: “And you definitely seem to be the kind of businesswoman I’d be interested in.”
Garrion: ok, without anything else this is all you know for now…
Vincent: (( knowledge local? or it aint’ so local?))
Marillion: “perhaps we could find some more information on this location in the city archives?”
Garrion: nope
Vincent: ok, good place to stop then.. we have a target it seems
Garrion: the archives can help but it you don’t even have a basic knowledge they will not tell you anything more
Tabris: “Hey, hey, that’s no way to talk to a lady…”
Tabris: “Show some respect.”
Vincent: alright, night guys
Marillion: “Vincent, Perhaps your churce would have more information”
Satomi: “Ehehe… I think ‘exotic’ thing as you say is not really my specialty… I do learn some things, but is good to be well-rounded, ne…?~”
Marillion: good night
Garrion: ok, i gave you all another card for roleplay and intros
Marillion: vincent
Satomi: (( Yay! ))
Vincent: " perhaps, I do need to check in.. let them know I arrived.. at last"
Bathas: “I meant no disrespect.”
Tabris: I got like the perfect card for Tabris, lol
Satomi: (( We’ll have to finish this later hehe, I gotta get some sleep before class x.x ))
Tabris: It’s seriously the most awesome thing ever
Satomi smiles.
Bathas: ((heh okay))
Bathas: ((lol what card is that?))
Marillion: that’s halarious
Tabris: “The Playa”
Bathas: lol
Tabris: You are immensely attractive to your preferred gender for this encounter. Gain a +5 bonus on all Cha-based skills with respect to that gender. And they all want you, anyway.
Satomi: Ahahaahahaha
Bathas: lol.
Tabris: It’s the perfect card for Tab
Marillion: now he doesn’t just THINK he’s cool, he actually is
Tabris: Damn straight
Vincent: heh, I got the ultimate trump healing card
Satomi: I got an awesome one too
Marillion: “restore hair?”
Satomi: “Cloak Streaming”
Tabris: lol
Tabris: Oh yeah that was the one that I discarded before
Garrion: ok, all of lynis’ cards are off the board and Bathas starts fresh with his own and his hero point accumulation
Tabris: That card is great but it wasn’t particularly useful for Tab
Satomi: “Seeing you stride up, guards will throw the door open, giving you access someplace they shouldn’t”
Satomi: I can go up somewhere and be like WINTER IS COMING
Tabris: lol yes
Vincent: " do teh gods owe you any favors?" One character has all damage, negative levels and ability score loss restored.
Bathas: lol
Marillion: ((best book serious ever))
Tabris: Oh wow
Marillion: series
Tabris: Yeah that card is the best one ever
Satomi: (( I’ve only seen part of the TV series, but I really want to read the books too ))
Tabris: All right I need to go to bed, catch you guys later
Bathas: ((Yeah the books are awesome))
Satomi: (( Me too, I got class in the morning x.x ))
Bathas: ((Well the TV series is awesome too))
Vincent: you shoulg do both, they are both good
Marillion: ((the single best book I have ever read, and I learned about it from this group about 4 years ago))
Tabris: Hmm, AIM is being weird
Vincent: books are probably better though
Marillion: ((funny how that works))
Vincent: heh, probably from me
Satomi: (( I’ll catch you guys next time though~ ))
Taragnor: heh okay… until next week.
Marillion: by the way, what are your real names?
Garrion: good job all, a little mash up there getting things settled in the city and introductions but we’ll get the ball rolling next time
Tabris: Later Sachi
Satomi: Sachi
Tabris: And I’m Preston
Marillion: I try to keep up with who is playing who’s characters
Vincent: Dan
Taragnor: Alright cya guys.
Taragnor is disconnected.
Marillion: later guys (Brice0
Marillion: Brice
Tabris is disconnected.
Satomi: See ya guys!
Cedric is disconnected.
Sachi is disconnected.
Marillion: lol, guess it’s closing time….
Marillion: night (if anyone is left!)
Garrion: yep
Garrion: scatter like raches in the lihgt
Marillion: later garrion, thanks for making space for me. we are on next week right?
Garrion: roaches
Garrion: yep, then 2 weeks off
Marillion: i’m used to playing till 2ish
Marillion: so this is early
Marillion: I got to figure this map tool out
Marillion: that’s the only crappy part
Garrion: want me to leave up to play with?
Marillion: no, that’s ok
Marillion: i think the only thing I need to do is figure out the macro’s
Marillion: and to prevent the closing
Garrion: yeah, read or post a help request to the MT forums
Marillion: i should be able to figure it out
Marillion: most of the help is for pre-lion though
Marillion: i didn’t really want lion but needed it to test for some software for my business
Marillion: besides that, just causes issues.
Garrion: yeah, i’m not a mac person so can’t help you there
Marillion: the huge screen is very nice
Marillion: and it’s great for photoshop and illustrator
Marillion: so, it does have it’s plus side
Garrion: i ahve a dual display that i use… a 24 on one side and a 21 on the other
Marillion: hooking printers up can be a bitch though…
Marillion: I just have one huge one… the larger imac…
Marillion: it does split screen using something called “two up” though
Marillion: so I hit command left, or command right and it’s fitted perfect
Garrion: i put MT on the main display and split the book pfd and web site references on the other display
Marillion: you probably have more screen space than I do…
Marillion: but, I like my set up. Plust when I have to take it with me on business it’s literally one cord
Marillion: which is very nice
Marillion: makes a great presentation display
Garrion: i could hook up my 60 inch led, haha
Marillion: I thought about doing that
Marillion: but, it would be way to close on my desk
Marillion: I would look like a moth staring at the screen
Garrion: i have aprojector i use for local games.. use MT to project the map down onto the table
Marillion: i’ve seen that done
Marillion: ((on youtube))
Marillion: looks nice
Marillion: have you seen the digital table by microsoft?
Marillion: that thing looks amazing
Garrion: it is nice for allowing nice maps, you can zoom it to the proper size for minis and you can do the vision layer with a token assigned to each mini that moves with it
Garrion: yeah, but $$$
Marillion: well, It should take me about 5 years to be stupid wealthy, so i’ll invite you over then to test it out
Marillion: they will probably have 3d by then anyway
Garrion: it is nice though, i wonder what software it runs? d20pro maybe?
Marillion: it did look like that
Marillion: and let me know if you want to test that out.
Garrion: yeah, waiting for holo projectors like in star wars
Marillion: i could get the dm license with 2 “guests”. it’s only 3o bucks
Marillion: or better yet, the room from star treck … the holodeck
Garrion: is it 2 guests or just one?
Marillion: i thnk it’s two
Marillion: that’s what the video said
Garrion: yep, two guest slots
Marillion: that’s not too bad
Marillion: i’m sure they make money on the upgrade packs more than anything
Marillion: but I love that you can import a map in and size the squares to any size you like to make it fit
Garrion: with 6 players you would be spending 70 bucks
Garrion: you can do that here in MT too
Marillion: players would spend 10 bucks one time unless they planned on being a gm
Marillion: then, they could upgrade for 20
Garrion: they have really added a lot of good features in the last few releases of MT
Marillion: i’m sure i’ll like it better when I’m not getting booted every 10 minutes
Garrion: yeah, that sucks
Garrion: i’ll see if i can find a fix for that too
Garrion: try this link http://forums.rptools.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7718&p=92702
Marillion: no worries, i’m sure i can get it figured out
Marillion: i’ll check it out tomorrow.
Marillion: i’m going to head to bed.
Marillion: i’ll catch you next tuesday
Marillion: feel free to say hi in the mean time
Garrion: ok, take care…
Marillion is disconnected.
