Let's all look like non-descript wenches and go into the dwarfs' room for some fun. :)

Re: The Knotted Rope II (ooc)
Can we all use the circlet to change form?

Re: The Knotted Rope II (ooc)
In reply to Lukasz Alazario (msg # 140):

We each have a circlet equivalent of a hat of disguise.

Grumblejack is a special ogre NPC who's been with our party from about the beginning. The funny thing is that the DM actually let someone RTJ for the ogre role lol. But we all ended up liking the ogre and decided to keep him in the group so he - and his player stayed.

The current Tomas that you know is actually Grumble's player. He took over old-Tomas when that player left, but new-Tomas and New-Maria decided to both keep the old concepts of their respective characters with just some tweaks, which is why you probably didn't realize that the OOC changes happened since their players did such a good job.

But Renard is making Grumblejack into his special project, and his player was down with it and that was the direction we went into. But now that he is new-Tomas fully, Dread is letting us keep Grumblejack as I intend to make him into a cohort down the line when we get to that stage of the game. But basically, Renard noticed immediately Grumble had potential beyond that of a normal ogre and has been grooming him slowly over time into being a butler/bodyguard/vassal of sorts and old-grumble had from the get-go had a special receptivity and bond with Renard, so we all decided to just play it up and I'll formalize it come cohort time.

The reason I told you all of this is to justify why I have been taking some small liberties with Grumble. For the most part, Dread controls him but in the spirit myself and the party wants. But there are some descriptive things I do like activating his circlet and such.

...so simply put, that was a long and roundabout way of telling you that you've got a circlet of disguise, Lukaz. ^_^

Re: The Knotted Rope II (ooc)
I like the idea of having an ogre cohort!

So as I read it Grumblejack is currently with us and in a disguise.  Is that correct?

I'll certainly make sure of the circlet of disguise.

Correct.  Any references you've seen to "Sir Grumbeld" are actually to Grumblejack in his disguise as the Mistress Rene's bodyguard.

And yup - we were each give a "circlet of disguise" by the cardinal Thorn previously. Like Rene' is actually a handsome dark-haired surprisingly suave young male necromancer but is enjoying his disguise and made it with tongue-in-cheek intentions despite playing it out flawlessly.

Nothing like a bit of cross dressing or would it be cross body'ing in this case? :)

Re: The Knotted Rope II (ooc)
Renard, for all his dark powers and brooding genius, is unlike the stereotypical necromancer in that he has a a sense of humor and is affable. Even when he needs to be serious. So naturally his disguise will be both capable yet transgressive. :)

Been sick as hell. Worked through the flu which the whole house had.

And update on my brothers posts as well. Mom had another stroke and he's been working and visiting her everyday in Austin. Adding 4 hours to every day I'll get things back on track in the next couple days among my games

Yes Dread update when you can but don't push yourself to do it. If you need to slow down a bit, then so be it.

My plan is to send the spiritual hammer off to fight the leader while Lukasz does his own thing against a scrub.   The copycat should help add a bit of confusion...

Yes in post 15 he has a map but the link is sort of blending in with the text a bit so you may have missed it. :)

Re: The Knotted Rope II (ooc)
We should go for CDGs. They automatically hit and do max damage criticals and also force Fort saves for the 10+damage dealt or instant death. For people like Tomas and Grumblejack we can basically kill one person per round. Even for the others you can take a scythe abuse that sweet x4 crit multiplier.

Re: The Knotted Rope II (ooc)
Renard how many poisons did you manage to make in the the ten days prior to the attack? I know I have two acid vials but we are going to need to have alot more then two poisons to incapacitate the garrison probably more like twenty

Re: The Knotted Rope II (ooc)
I made one 100gp worth poison, which was really hard to make even with good rolls. You can retroactively request lesser poisons but turn value is about 100gp...I used the Belladonna template by default. I made acid too.
