Fundamentally - adventuring about risk/reward.
Ratios can be way off in some cases:

Rewards:
-game system conversions: chance of death in exchange for bonus that is down-graded in conversion i.e. stat boosts
-things you already have
-things that can be converted more positively or apply unexpected benefit (Y/N questions)

On the flip side, risks can also be a problem
-characters harder to generate, so less disposable
-loss of planar travel power etc.
-at best, can mitigate risks using powers in unforseen ways, and thus get benefits without actual risk. Can cancel out: you eliminate risk and then receive for free a power that's not useful [+7 all stats].

Escaping
BLADEBOOTS:
Captured thieves are typically stripped of their weapons, but not of
their shoes. If a thief has a shoe for a weapon, odds for escape improve significantly. Solid
leather construction, a broad steel blade, and a heel-click trigger mechanism add kick to any escape.
(15 gp)
Wt 2 lbs; Sz S; Type P; Speed 4; Dmg 1d6/1d6+1

GM notes: houserule to d4 damage (as dagger); from Aurora's catalogue but built by Arek.
Houseruling to d4 damage; treat as non-proficient.

One thing we're starting to notice: the party has (one way or another) by necessity sunk a lot of power into communication and travel abilities (e.g. psionics). Detracting from combat abilities ?

Learnings:
ideally, want fireproof bag of holding
fire immunity is much better than fire resistance (buy some)
need to replace - Heal scroll.
need more DEX
magic armour ?

Sage - Carlisle - 3000 XP/ 2nd level


SenZar item [Seduction +5 mods; 5000 GP]

50,000 GP would get +5 armour (x10)
50,000 would also get stat boost potion - one physical up to 15.
Potential to get wizard with meh Con to use Enhance, in exchange getting potion (which fixes that and then some). They would need to know Enhance.

Upgrade process to-do list:
Buying stuff:
-unlimited 'Revelation' item ?? - would be really useful.
-poison gas
-Omniflex ? - problem of fixing Garek's current Int :(
-pool of greatness ? - still allergy problem.

-award XP.


-recharge Y/N questions
-see if can get Ring of Cat Control off Torvil ??


Selling stuff:
-suits of full plate: about 250 gp each
-extra flying carpet - could get 100K on Palladium world, potentially ? - may not be equivalent quality (only 10,000 GP in Arduin). In part can also be more readily available ingredients or better techniques.

-fix +1 broadsword ?? [steal enchantment from pieces]? - say up to 1500 GP neg. ?? - Kelarn
- Remove curse from spellbook
-poison gas on itchies box


***General "Upgrade" stuff - continuing ?
