In keeping with the partially established them of polling the audience Precious needs a master to serve, or have served, as their Shubbet companion (Position Filled).  That works better if it is one of the PCs with an approximately human lifespan.

There is also some question about what the Shubbet actually look like as the race is highly variable, so anyone who is interested in having such a companion, or inspiring how they look, should submit picture suggestions either here or by private message.  I won't be doing anything nearly as egalitarian as voting as I will just pick the best one, so only submit pictures you think are worth using.

Just finished up my character sheet and its pending review by the DM.

Hello my fair friends. I'll be your some what loveable leader. lol I'm geared to be a party face. My whole build revolves around the social skills and as such I have all of them. But dont let my charming personality fool you. I can hold my own on the front lines, though not as well as a meat shield. I'm still a bit squishy. I also make a fairly good sneak when called for and have those skills as well.

I'll be getting a character description up soon as well.

Ok, so -because I'm a bit slow it seems- we are moving the action to where?

Also, it seems we've lost Sage, so should we wait a bit more for her, or do I invite the next person in the waiting list?

Dealers choice on what to do with Sage. As for moving the action I think at least Vinnick and I have resolved to go press the flesh with the watchmen in some bar or another (the name escapes me at the moment; assuming it was ever given.)

My character is light on skills. Her only social is intimidation. She lacks the investigation skill and the Int for unskilled attempt. The only thing she might contribute at this point is going to a Confidential Informant and scaring the info out of him. I yield to my fellow players.

That is remarkably convenient, Intimidation is the one personal interaction skill I didn't take, so I could take investigation instead.

@Alison you and I are in a very similar boat. My charisma is 10 and my social skill is intimidation. I'm really just going forward with what makes the most sense for my character. Skill wise I'm likely to fail but hopefully I'll fail forward.

So after a quick read through of the posts up to this point the situation is thus: there has been a tragic series of murders, three in total and all of them women killed within the poor districts of Ondinium. We collectively have been called in General Commander Luzitanne to perform a parallel investigation into the murders since she is suspicious over if the City Watch, those normally in charge of such things, is involved somehow. We only just got out assignment and are now tracking down leads at the Stone Sword, a known gathering place for City Watchmen.

Other pertinent details are in the OOC text of msg #13 in Hunting by gaslight.

We've got some info, but I think most of us are pretty new to the game, so what we do with that information now is a little...uncertain. Are we supposed to take it to superiors, or investigate it on our own? Since these are repeated murders, does this information match up with previous information enough to give us something to go off of and know how to act on it?

I think it's good info, I'm just not entirely sure what to do with it.

The instructions were to investigate on your own, away from headquarters and with no paper trail.

Facts known.

- There is a potential witness in Dhur the orphan who is missing, but likely wasn't abducted going by the MO of the attacker. He is likely to be hiding around the City or in the sewers.
- The last killing happened at night.
- There is blood in the scene that doesn't match the victim and isn't human. It is possibly of a Gubelim. Likely it belonged to the attacker as the victim seems to have hurt the attacker with the broken bottle.
- Apart from the attacker's blood, the scene isn't fundamentally different from previous ones.
- The attacker manages to constantly evade the Watch. Might have inside information.
- One of the secretaries is worried about Dave one of the newer recruits.
- Dave is also in the scene. It is up to you to decide if he is trusworthy or not.
- Dave attempted to take away the other child in the scene, the one that is a witness by proxy.
