Re: Session Zero
Grimbold is encumbered just by wearing armor so he brought rope anyways.  Perhaps we can pool money for a donkey/mule

Re: Session Zero
I have 3 Gold, I could rearrange some stuff and pick up a Donkey. I have the skills to handle the Donkey/Mule. Lemme look at what I have so far. I rolled really bad for starting gold.

Re: Session Zero
If I don't buy my Scimitar, I can afford a Donkey! That will just leave me with a Dagger for my weapon. But it might be worth it to have a Donkey. Especially since I have Animal Rapport: Gypsy-Bards are nearly druidical in their ability to associate with animals. They automatically gain the proficiencies of Animal Handling, Animal Lore, Animal Training and Riding (Land-based).

Re: Session Zero
That works, I can supply 2gp, then we can tie our backgrounds to one another, having known one another since the purchasing of our donkey!

Also, it might not be useful now, since its early in the game, but for Animal training. There are two options.

The Standard Method & The Alternative Method

These are both described in the Ranger's Guide. I am just going to assume that we are using the Standard Method, unless told differently. This also might come in handy later if we have time jumps, since animal Training takes time.

Re: Session Zero
Update, I need to study for test tomorrow. Will get back to you after that.

Ok, so far it seems you are heading Hommlet. From which city on the Wild Coast?

Re: Session Zero
Grimbold, where are you from? I know South of the Wild Coast is the Principality of Ulek, at Havenhill, which is a Dwarven City, The Lortmil mountains also has a few Dwarven Settlements. The Faerie Kingdom of Celene could be where our Elves are from. Rega looks like she is from Elredd, and that is really close to Fax where Vandilo is from.

So it looks like we could all be from somewhere in the Wild Coast, moving north towards Hommlet. Anyone from further south of Elredd would have to travel through both it and Fax, if you wanted to stay along the road. Eventually, unless we traveled all the way to Dyvers, we would have to cut across the Welkwood forest, we could have picked up our Elven Ranger from there. So that could cover Rega, Vandilo, Raphim, and Grimbold. Not sure where Dirk is from.

Re: Session Zero
Ok, I didn't want to gloss over the travel to Hommlet, but we'll start there then. Give me a little time to get you settled. Meanwhile make sure you have a picture and a description

Re: Session Zero
I have been having a laugh listening to Orcanomics : A Satire. By Zachary Pike.

Anyone else read it?  I highly recommend it.  Anyone who has played enough dungeons runs will get a chuckle as the book combines D&D and fantasy economics.

Phsute no worries, we will be here ready to go.

Dirk looks side long at his traveling companions wondering who will be the first, the more daring an the one to annoy him the mot.  Chuckles, so who here can err shall we say open tricky locks, scale walls, find those little trigger points to safely open chests or doors.  Chuckles, I am not sure about you all but I am looking forward to some adventure.

Re: Session Zero
I can do those tricks...I specialize in finding traps that hurt the unwary and opening locks that were meant to stay locked.
