Re: Out of Character (OOC):
LOL... If we get there and find out we don't have something we need, we can just send Gus and the mule back to town for it, while we kick back and tell campfire stories...

How about this for a solution? How about each of us donates a third of our remaing gold, and we'll just consider that between Gus, the Mule, and our Guide, that we've brought everything we needed along? I guess I've gotten soft by playing in games where little account was kept with regards to equipment, encumbrance and all of that. ;-)  I apologize, but for some reason I'm having a real mental hurdle with this right now. I'd be happy to just put my gold on account and when the time comes for something I would have needed, but didn't get around to putting on my sheet, that I just deduct the cost of it and we pretend Gus had it all along... Again, not trying to be a pain, just eager to get on the adventure. It must be the Kender in me. ;-)

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
I *really* wouldn't worry about it. In some cases it is actually more fun to not have something and have to come up with ideas on the fly. There's no challenge in having everything you need. Take some basics and be done with it.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
Okay, everyone, with the exception of Gavina, should have most of what they need on their PC sheets. If anyone wants additional supplies on the mule then I suggest they let me know. I'm not going to assume anything and if it's not on your sheet then you don't have it.

We can decide to role-play out as much of the journey as you like. You also need to decide to stay over night at the logging camp OR push on to the caves.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
I'll start fashioning a list of normal items, and will subtract/change as justified by future developments.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
Have we gotten extra oil flasks,pitons, hammers and ropes for the journey? Going underground those might be a judicious expense. Beyond that I think we are good.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
Here's the list Dalscyr and Gus came up with for the mule. I've put the total cost down for which we can each pay a share to Tolfdir, or as I understand our contract, he will deduct it from our pay at the completion of the job. Dalscyr will pay for Gus, and Gus will pack Dalscyr's essentials, like food and bedding and whatnot. Feel free to add to this list of anything I might have missed. I did just think a canary might be a good idea... GM, could Dalscyr keep a canary in his pouch? ;-)

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
We building a fortress or going on an adventure? 5 ten foot poles! What, we doing circus acts now on the side? List of items are ok if a bit over the top on quantity. If you were thinking of using the poles to hold up the tarp we can substitute any party member spears or staves for the task. Surprised you didn't go with a tent. Heck why not throw in an inflatable Jacuzzi. We probably could get a cleric to create water for it. I'm sure their god will understand. :)

Just in case it's not clear I'm bustin' chops here.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
:-P
Like I said, Gus has Dalscyr's stuff, and besides he won't need a tent, we can just go back to the lodge...! ;-)

And I had to look in three different books and portable Jacuzzi was nowhere to be found. We'll need a GM's ruling on that one I suppose.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
And where's the food? YOU of all people would have foodstuffs stacked high and wide. Maybe tow a wagon just for bakery goods...

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
I (me, the player) have been a Boy Scout leader for several years now, and one thing I've learned in that time is to watch out for myself! There is nothing worse that planning a "menu" and having to rely on scouts to cook a meal. Between eggs getting broken along the trail, ingredients being forgotten, dirt and debris floating in the food, and everything tasting like a partially incinerated cat, group food only seems to work if you're camping with a group of world-class chefs who are completely outfitted with portable kitchens and pantries. I've learned that if I want to eat, I need to bring and prepare my own food... ;-)

So, I'm not sure about the rest of you besides Calaron who narrated stealing some cheese from breakfast, but Dalscyr has brought his own supply of edibles for himself, assuming that none of you can cook and that Myrah forgot. Dalscyr will need to tighten his belt many notches by the end of this outing, but at least he won't starve... I hope.

~~~~

Ok, all kidding aside, I thought we hired our guide to handle this sort of thing for us. Surely we'd have arranged that with her before moving out this morning. I mean this isn't our first rodeo, right?

And Gus is carrying Dalscyr's camping/cooking supplies...

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
Cal has everything he needs including rations.

You just had such a food focus for your character I thought that would carry over into the adventure.

Scouts...fond memory of tin foil cooking...that was until one kid started tossing in m80's into the fire...

Ground beef..mixed in 2-3 chopped vegetables..like potatoes, carrots, celery, etc. wrapped it up in tin foil...put in fire for like 20 minutes and voila..good meal to enjoy.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
Onions, or better yet, shallots, and don't forget salt, pepper and a good sized dollop of butter!

My kids often ask for tinfoil "Hobo" dinners even when we're not camping... ;-)

After I get my chores done tonite, I'll finish off my lists and then I'm perfectly fine with moving the story forward... ;-) *nudge*

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
As you have it, the mule is carrying an encumbrance load of 80+ items equivalent, way too much. So you'll have to lighten it. My suggestion would be cut everything in half.
