I'll start a new one, you'll have some downtime. I'm sorry about the delay, I'm currently off my meds and it sucks rather hard.

No worries. I just wanted to make sure we weren't in a situation where everyone was waiting for everyone else to post first.

Fellow party members, what is our next objective? Is there anything specific you guys have in mind while we wait for the code in the book to get decoded? I think we would have plenty of time in-game to plan and strategize, considering we don't need to sleep and can spend that time chatting or contemplating.

Re: OOC
There is a riot going on, so normally I would suggest trying to help the authorities stop it. However, we're probably fugitives given that we left the jail.

Speaking for myself... 4'7" tall, 115lbs, black eyes (including the whites), silver hair, pale skin, extra long arms... somehow, I don't think I could stop a riot.  More like start one.

Re: OOC
I just want to do something positive that helps. That's partly IC because that's Voh'ren's nature, but it's also partly OOC because I like playing good PCs.

Re: OOC
Bristle probably won't be much help with riot control. Her only real method of crowd control right now is to channel negative energy until people fall unconscious. That, or create some undead enforcers using her robe of bones. Either of which would probably only make things worse...

She could cast Guidance on people constantly, or heal other party members if they get injured. And she could cast Groundswell on one person too, if it would help.

Re: OOC
Alright, this is what I went with for my spell list for the day. Calm Emotions can help with riot control if needed, and hopefully Detect Charm and Detect Thoughts will help us root out Whisper Agents. I prepared Ancestral Communion, Speak with Dead, and Divination to potentially help us scrounge up information. And I prepared Detect Poison so that I can check everyone's food before they eat it (because I am a paranoid player at the moment ;-P ). If Detect Charm works and ends up being useful, it may be worth creating a Page of Spell Knowledge for so that Firea can use it too. I could also start creating/upgrading Cloaks of Resistance for those who don't already have them (although it will need to wait until I prepare Resistance). If anyone has any other ideas for useful wondrous items, let me know.

LV0:
  • Detect Magic
  • Guidance
  • Detect Poison
  • Enhanced Diplomacy

LV1:
  • Comprehend Languages
  • Detect Charm
  • Detect Charm
  • Cure Light wounds
  • Sanctuary
  • Air Bubble
  • Forbid Action

LV2:
  • Detect Thoughts
  • Resist Energy
  • Desecrate
  • Ancestral Communion
  • Calm Emotions
  • Calm Emotions

LV3:
  • Animate Dead
  • Screaming Flames
  • Dispel Magic
  • Speak with Dead

LV4:
  • Divination
  • Spell Immunity
  • Air Walk

Re: OOC
Firea is the worst at stopping a riot, unless the rioter's are heavily armed. Easiest way to explain her is a light tank with the firepower of a heavy tank. So yeah, if you look at her spells as a fire elementalist you'll see she should be the last resort. lol

The way Firea found the last Whisper puppet was by using suggestion on it. lol A better method would likely be Detect Charm. Firea doesn't have a Cloak of Resistance herself, it would be a useful thing to have. I actually forwent it for the Ring of Eloquence so she could talk while in her fox form (and eventually cast while in it too).

Add to the she also has a spell lattice for Shield, and items that will allow her to recover a single level one spell like ability use, and 1 level 2 spell like ability use too.

Her sorceress spells and innate spells are as follows:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
INNATE ABILITIES
1st Tail: Dancing Lights 3/day
2nd Tail: Disguise Self 2/day
3rd Tail: Charm Person 2/day
4th Tail: Misdirection 2/day

6th Tail: Suggestion 2/day
7th Tail: Displacement 2/day

Re: OOC
I do have Wind Wall and Resist Energy prepared because they tend to be useful in most situations. I'm also playing a rather large Half-Orc with an equally large falchion and composite bow strapped to my back, and an armored wolf pup at my side. That would be great for active intimidation, but that's not Voh'ren's forte.

I've got all the useful adventuring doodads (handy haversack, ring of feather fall, ring of protection +1, cloak of resistance +2) and the traits and mithral armor that lets me be decently armored and still pretty stealthy (despite being a giant Half-Orc bristling with weapons).

If that means I'm going out alone, climbing on rooftops and leaping into crowds to fire warning shots, and playing BatOrc, then it's probably what Voh'ren would do. I don't think a ranger will be of much use deciphering old scripts or seeing through charm spells.

Voh'ren will head out into the city to try and protect people from rioters and their baser instincts.

Re: OOC
Okay, so you now have at least three distinct leads to follow. You could wait for the journal to be decrypted some and see what it says; investigate the brothel that Bristle's magic told her had some information about Whisper or how to stop her within it; or go and look into the fallen angel Crocutiel.

Any thoughts on which of these you'd like to go for first?

Re: OOC
We can't really do anything other than wait with regards to the journal, so I'd vote for starting with whichever of the other two leads is closest.

Re: OOC
Yeah, I'm with Voh'ren. With no idea how long it'll take to decode the journal, and the mountain being two weeks just to get there and back with who knows how long needed to reach the summit, the brothel is the closest avenue of investigation open to us.
Besides, I'm really curious about how a brothel factors into all of this.

Re: OOC
Just caught up with reading the recent posts. I also vote for the brothel, since it is so close. Bristle may also be able to craft a useful item while they are in town, but I will bring that up in the post I am about to make.

Re: OOC
Just what we need, someone like Firea in a brothel. She has no idea what a brothel is, much less what sex is.

Yes, no one would be able to tell that last one with all the flirting she did when you first met her. She flirt's big, but never moved past it. lol
