Re: Junior House Again
OOC:  None of that should interfere with our "moving forward" into the next day.

Jareth has no pressing expenditures right now (except for replacing Jocelyn's Pout, which I figure we should wait until we can get the real stuff, not the Blue).  So he's just socking his coins away for now.

My suggestions are for us to finish exploring the Maintenance Barracks area, where we wanted to set up the Alchemy lab.  Finish dealing with the remaining dead bodies we've got stacked up like cordwood.  Deal with the dead orc sewer worker.  And maybe explore out for several city blocks in all direction to make sure we don't have otyughs wandering around loose.

If further time remains, we can track down the silver that Jocelyn found with Seek Earth (it also might be within a few blocks, so we might stumble over it anyway), and maybe push out the boundaries of the area we have explored and established as "safe-ish".

Maybe even figure out if that bhole is still in our neck of the sewers, or if it moved to the docks, or hopefully not encounter it at all, ever again...

Given a few hours, Jareth can make maps of the areas we "know" for everyone to carry (for more than that he'll need more time, like a full day to copy his maps if someone wants to carry back ups).  If I remember correctly Jocelyn also knows how to make maps, so efforts can be combined.

That sounds entirely reasonable.

Don't suppose you know how to kill a bhole, do you?  Just in case?  Thinking something more than mere arrows is likely to be needed...

Same way you do any other giant creature... find someone else to do it...

But no, it's an eyeless worm, couldn;t even point out where it might, might, have weak spots.  My suggestion if you have to fight it?  Shoot someone in the leg so you can run faster than they can.

My plan is to avoid it if possible and hope it like the ocean enough to become someone else's problem... and that no one ever blames us.

I blame the 'underground' Rotworm fighting circuits... they're cute when they're young, but then they get bigger and someone dumps it down the privy and next thing you know, bholes in the sewers...

What are we calling "expert"?  If it's 14 or greater), Jareth has a few, a few, skills at that lofty height... (Cartography is one of them, but that's because he has a single point in it.)

She is a good cartographer... infrequently screws up ... but not an expert.
probably messes up 15 out of 100 times.

Just means Joc spends a little more time making a map or accept slightly more errors... and hey, what's a few dungeon map errors between friends... :P

Re: Junior House Again
OOC: Though I can retrace my steps perfectly even a few weeks on, and always know North, maps are very useful, in part for showing others how to get somewhere, or for getting somewhere you haven't been, or for figuring out what's above or beneath what.  Much easier to lay one map over another, than to do a bunch of geometry and arithmetic to try to determine the nearest stairwell to a destination twenty or thirty feet deeper.  Probably much less prone to error, too.

The hastily copied map of major conduits that Jareth has does indicste the catchment roomwhere the orc was slain,
To obtain that area will require a cash bribe, and a further perk in the Department of Acqueducts and Sewers.(you can use a base point for this, just indicate it separately). You akso need an exact copy of the serial numbers of the rooms in question.

OOC:  I thought he was killed in the privy down the hall...

But yes, all that will happen, at some point.  For now where just looking to get to tomorrow...

The player is probably tracking this far worse than what Nodwin is.  Hanging out waiting on tomorrow.  In game of course.

OOC:  Right, asking this question again, Narrator, anything holding us up?  Like are we waiting on other groups to progress as well?

Re: Junior House Again
OOC: I have a point to spare to put into the Aqueducts and Sewers "base" if needed.  For the cash bribe, we may need to find out how much is expected.

Re: Junior House Again
Nodwin pauses for a moment, thinking about the question asked by Jareth.  The last period of time had been spent running around town, talking to various merchant types, and organizing with the Hadereum.  It was all work he considered boring, and he found himself wanting to avoid more of it.

"I'm ready for some excitement, Jareth.  It's necessary to interact with the administration, and we got ownership of some storefronts out of it.  There will always be more to do here.  I'm sure Benito would be glad for some help getting set up and organized, and there is always more to do with my religious flock.

I'm definitely interested to see how everything works out here, but I'm more curious to see what's going on down in the sewers.  We have set enough things in motion here.  For example, it will take some time for the buildings to get cleaned up, not that they are properly supported.  Benito now has a building to work with, and he'll need a while to build up the necessary displays.

I say let's take another trip into the sewers, to make sure the area is safe and secure.  If we are going to be managing this section of town, then we'll want to make sure the underside is secure from all the nastiness wandering around under the city.  It seems like a reasonable use of our time."
