Re: OOC
Im thinking it might not be logical to aquire a barge

Does any one know how to man a barge. Sail or idk polls in the mud?? coraxa gaurds one. Not operate. Thiugh it could be funny. " i v seen it doen hundres a times, we can do this"

We would lose time and $$ if we had to pay someone to sail it up river

Re: OOC
Rowing and pushing with poles doesn't demand much training. If the current is too strong for that, they probably have horses or donkey to pull the barges from the shore.

If sails are really the only option... then yes, we'd need to either hire a henchman, or we'd be better off walking.

Re: OOC
I think we can short-hand it as Undertaking A Perilous Journey.  Caedwen can roll + Wis as the Scout, Coraxa could roll + Wis as the Trailblazer (to determine if she can find her contacts at the docks, or if we end up walking), and someone can roll + Wis as the Quartermaster to determine how many rations we use up getting there.

I can probably try to aid Coraxa OR Caedwen, but because of my Herculean Appetites  I'm pretty sure I'd can only Interfere with the Quartermaster.

Re: OOC
Given that Caedwen is using alternate transportation (wings), it would make more sense for you to assist Coraxa with Trailblazing.  I missed this action in the rules, and it's an interesting take!

Re: OOC
I was thinking we would perilous journey  after you all decided to get the barge or not.

But i guess it makes scense that if Coraxa rolls for trailblaze if the roll is successful then you do get the barge if not, you hoofit.  I supose its on Coraxa.

If she want to roll for trailblaze or roll parley  against the dockmaster??

Re: OOC
I think it also maks scense that someone could follow the caedwen on foot so as not to lose him. Then the other that aquire the barge where to catch up. Also i belive if you loses bird caedwen. He will find you after he learns what ever he learns

Re: OOC
Haslo was asking about his new squire IC...  since hirelings usually only serve PCs whose level is greater than (or equal to) their skill level, would the squire just be a Loyalty 2 hireling who will do mundane tasks for their employer, or should they have at least one skill ?

Re: OOC
Both because I've taught sailing to adults who'd no prior experience and because I know how RPoL's dice roller treats PCs who "just need to roll OK here", I think this trip upriver will be an absolutely hilarious comedy of errors. :D

Re: OOC


we need a

the quartermaster reduces the number of rations required by one
the trailblazer reduces the amount of time it takes to reach your destination (the GM will say by how much)  Coraxa all ready did
the scout will spot any trouble quick enough to let you get the drop on it

Re: OOC
All right, I took a lot of liberties with my post.  Assuming this river is just a normal size (and in theory would be smaller upstream) and not the size of the Columbia River, a series of logs should be able to create a dam that will last for a short period of time.  Beavers can chew through a six-inch wide tree in a matter of minutes.  I have spent time doing stream surveys for the federal government (US), and have seen blockages caused by trees as thin as Alders given enough downed trees.

I also took a stab at using Hack and Slash to cut down trees, though I should have gotten some move for being a beaver.

Re: OOC
as I read and learn from the other games I'm in.
I think you had 3 moves on hold.
as a beaver, you naw a tree. I would think that one move 2/3
then make a damn would be the next move 1/3

no rolls just is sorta

Re: OOC
Hey guys.

I talked with our illustrious GM, and... I'm really loving the game. I love Dungeon World. But I think I can't keep up the posting pace with other folks here. I don't want to drag the game down, and I don't want to be the player that pops up less than once a scene. So, I'm going to bow out gracefully. I hope you all have a lot more fun here, and once in a while, when you drop by the inn, say hey to Doxrider!

In reply to Master of Tales (msg # 85):

If the answer was in the description of the watermen, I don't know what it was. Would you mind PMing the person who rolls the successful Discern Realities move? Everyone else would get the fiction, but the "truth" would be filtered through the person who knows what's going on.

Re: OOC
My apologies. Let me ask you all a question.

To answer "what is goin to happen here?"

Do i tell you what is going to happen if you dont act?
if you dont act now the orb will slip away to the north
Or tell you what you should do?
stop these people from moving forward.

Maybe it does not matter the answer is the same stop these folks

Re: OOC
I think the confusion was based on the description we had of the situation.  It's a form of  "information paralysis", where the lack of detail causes decision making to seize up.  Here's some points where incomplete information might be slowing people down...

  • We know the Weather Weaver's Orb is possibly tied to the lightning attack on the tower and that we had to go up the river to find it.  However, I could find nothing in the scene description that said we saw anything suspicious about the people up ahead, or any mage-like figures among them, or any arcane device that might control the orb.
    What clues might indicate that THESE are the people we need to stop?
  • We do know that there are four male figures and one female, but we don't even know if they are human or Elven or Orcish or winged imps, only that there are five "hominid figures" total.
    Are they identifiable or bearing any incriminating marks, that would make us think they aren't just civilians inconvenienced by the dam?
  • It is unclear how aggressive we should be.
    What are some imminent hazards that could hammer home the sense of urgency?

Needing a mage and a druid makes total sense;  one to channel nature's power, and the other to shape and direct that power.

Re: OOC
Given that druids don't have their own innate spellcasting but, rather, have some mastery over the elements and the ability to commune with the skies, and wizards having the magical power but much less emphasis on the elements and weather... makes sense to me.  (Holy run-on sentence, batman!)  I like the emphasis on teamwork, as that's a key element in Dungeon World.

As for the current scene, I agree with Ingrid.  You seem to have a vision of this scene that didn't come across in the description.  That being said, our current plan should inevitably lead to some fighting.
