Re: OOC Thread #10:  Commandments
Is there a reason Heidmarch Manor sounds familiar?  Have we encountered that name before in this game, or am I remembering it from something else?

Must be somewhere else.  Doesn't ring a bell for me at all.

I can tell you that no one has ever previously mentioned the Heidmarches to the party.

Liseth seems busy at college and hasn't checked in for a bit so until she gets settled in and back into a routine I'm planning to NPC her for a while.  So once Kellan and Pisca post I'll update.

I think I might be remembering it from Shattered Star.  I played in one game here that folded relatively soon, but I think the first encounter takes place in Heidmarch Manor.

Re: OOC Thread #10:  Commandments
Beautiful description of the bazaar.  Very nice.

I take it that this ...
The Raconteur:
“Yes, that Arwick Tosscobble.”  He looked up to see if any of the party took notice of his name.  Disappointed at the lack of reaction, he continued.

... is the result of multiple failed knowledge checks among us?  If not, mayI have just such a knowledge check whereby I might discover what it is that he's talking about?

Hmmm.  In fact, Taking 10 using the bard's Lore Master ability nets me a Knowledge Local of 20.  Can we go with that?  Knowledge History Taking 10 and using Archaeologist's Luck gives me 21, if that doesn't work.

Thank you, Pisca!

And no, you can't remember hearing anything about an Arwick Tosscobble.

Re: OOC Thread #10:  Commandments
Sorry for that extremely delayed response.  Still getting used to the kids being back in school, plus one started a new school, plus I'm teaching a class one night a week.  Where does the time go?

Re: OOC Thread #10:  Commandments
So, do you guys want to roleplay the conversation at Hungry Wolf Sundries or just work out what you're looking for here and see what's available, then have a post recapping things?

Re: OOC Thread #10:  Commandments
Just work out what you're looking for here and see what's available, might be best.  Generally, I'm all for roleplay.  But, given the current pace, I'm not sure that would be constructive.

Re: OOC Thread #10:  Commandments
We had a conversation quite a few month's ago.  I'm not sure where it is now.  I had a list of items and the only one you said that Pisca couldn't find in Sandpoint was a Circlet of Persuasion.

Re: OOC Thread #10:  Commandments
Yeah, I'm for doing the shopping OOC as well.  Cato would be interested in two things:
1) Lesser Rod of Extend Metamagic
2) Scroll of Cat's Grace

Also, how much magical item creation did Cato have time to do on the voyage here?  Was he able to identify the chimes and mask we found under Foxglove Manor?

Re: OOC Thread #10:  Commandments
Cato identified the chimes as Chimes of Opening.

He was unable to identify the mask.  You can tell that it has a faint aura of necromacy, and Kerr has informed you that it is definitely evil.

Re: OOC Thread #10:  Commandments
Here's the post.  This thread.

Pisca Neep Freemish msg 72:
I'm going to experiment with UMD.  Gold at this level will be invested in Muleback Cords (having nothing to do with UMD), a wand of Mage Armor, and a Circlet of Persuasion.  With the Circlet, she should be pretty close to hitting the 20 for activating a wand every time.


So ...

Muleback Cords
Wand of Mage Armor
Circlet of Persuasion

And, maybe, with the addition of Muleback Cords, a longspear.

Re: OOC Thread #10:  Commandments
I am so sorry that I was away for so long.  All Summer, really...

The last few months have been an event, let me tell you.  Moving to a new city, starting at the University.  I had to pack up my house and put everything in storage; then move everything into an UPSTAIRS apartment.  I'm still trying to get everything organized; I might just be forced to keep some boxes of things in a few closets.

Also, a desk fell on me during the move.  That was less than fun.

Anyway, everything has settled down into a routine, finally.  Classes are going well but I am having to get used to being surrounded by teenagers.  Thousands of them.  It really feels weird, like being the adult taking classes in high school.  It's kind of sad to see all these kids treat it like high school minus their parents too.  But I guess I'm a little lucky that most people think me a lot younger than I actually am.  At least I look like I belong.

So, I have some reading to do in order to catch up.  I am so sorry...again...about being gone for so long.  I will try to update between classes tomorrow, during the weekend at the latest.

Sorry...

It's just good to hear from you Liseth.  ^_^  Sounds like you have quite the adventure going for you right there.

Going to school when I bit older than everyone else is an adventure, Liseth. Enjoy it. Last time my wife was in school we were old enough to BE the parents. It made for an interesting dynamic.  Have fun!

Back to School
Thanks everyone.  I need to get back into my stride with Runelords.  I'm looking back through my files and I don't think I ever even entered my information for level 6...we did get to level 6, didn't we?

And there's the conversation about magical items.  Did we have gold to buy things individually?  I'm not sure what I would want...maybe a lighter (mithril) shield to complement my armor...or a headband of Charisma just to boost all my abilities.
