That was a clever solution, absolutely.

Indeed it was! You'll find Kurin takes a "hack first" mentality most days.

Re: Inn of the Last Home (OOC)
Oxsidi asked to be removed from the game.  In private discussion I could not determine what he was so upset about, and he did not feel the hook for this adventure was sufficiently strong.

The hook is designed in the spirit of a good number of Sword & Sorcery stories I have read over the decades.  It is premised on the idea that adventurers are looking for adventure.


Does anyone else not feel a call to adventure in this scenario?

I thought he was just roleplaying!

Let's get going, IMHO.

So, hi!

esterday was a terrible travel day.  My 3:30 flight finally took off at 9:30 and I didn't get into my hotel until past midnight.  It looks like we are ready to proceed, I will skip to the next morning and the departure.

Saefrith was contacted separately by Thalia for this adventure, essentially Thalia looking for a woman to watch her back in the wilderness...

Re: Inn of the Last Home (OOC)
Karin Jets is withdrawing from the game as well, the pace is too slow for him.  I canít help the pace and donít blame him, though I did put the expectation of 2 to 3 IC posts per week, which I think weíve maintained.

In any case, for the two remaining players, push o  or recruit more?

Sudan, for the caravan guard you charmed, what are the terms of his employment?  He may consider you a friend right now, but he still needs income.  Use the retainer rules (not mercenaries) for guidelines.  We will call this day 2 of his charm, please help me keep track of the days so I can roll his next saving throw.

Re: Inn of the Last Home (OOC)
I'm easy! I'd say press on and use the characters we have as NPCs but that's probably burdening you a lot long term

Re: Inn of the Last Home (OOC)
I'm ok going on with two, you can advertise for more and meet at an oasis or such.

The guard, he can hire him for around a gp a month + room and board, or more as a personal bodyguard. I'll track the days but will likely just cast the spell on him every other day, depending on if he can choose to fail a ST, and how you would rule multiple charms would work.

What does he have as far as equipment? What is he proficient with?

Re: Inn of the Last Home (OOC)
I will continue and also advertise for more players, then.

As for the guard, he has leather armor with a cap helm that is pointed and has a neck guard in leather, a round wooden shield and is proficient with scimitar, spear, dagger and short bow.  For our purposes he is a 1st-level Fighter.  If you want to inspire true loyalty without having to keep charming him a share of the treasure, even if it is a half share, would go a long way.

I'm going with Charm spells not overlapping but replacing.  That would mean better to cast it once a week or so, until you figure out his INT, as it's pretty clear he won't get a save every day.  Just not that bright.

Let's call him Alperen.  He is this point TN alignment, though has some Chaotic tendencies (not CN as he will abide by a contract signed.)

Re: Inn of the Last Home (OOC)
OK, I'll get him a shortbow and spear, a mule with saddle and saddle bags, four water skins and a weeks rations, all about 60gp

Re: Inn of the Last Home (OOC)
Curiously, who dictates his actions when charmed and hired?

Re: Inn of the Last Home (OOC)
I took things as posted, but I'll happily edit to suit if Alperen gets the mount

Re: Inn of the Last Home (OOC)
It's fine, I can change the post.  Alperen and the boy also are NPCs, charmed, hired or neither.  However, I expect that he will will be mostly quiet, though his base character is none too good.  Charmed or not he is essentially a "bad person" though I suppose there is hope for anyone.

Re: Inn of the Last Home (OOC)
Okay, edited the post to include the mount for Alperen.

Saefrith can edit her post to take the changes into account.

Sorry I've been quiet, this week has been a beast of a week for work hours so far and Friday isn't looking better.

Re: Inn of the Last Home (OOC)
Okay, Saefrith rolled a 3 and you guys have initiative.

Missile Weapons go first, followed by spells, then movement, and last is melee.

Alperen will draw his scimitar and melee.  Thalia is moving away but not fleeing, more of getting out of the way for the others to have clear access to the beast.  The boy is doing the same.

Re: Inn of the Last Home (OOC)
No missile weapons or declared spell, then Saefrith can roll to-hit in melee.  I will also roll for Alperen and toad, which chose him for its meal (I rolled randomly.)

Re: Inn of the Last Home (OOC)
Zudaan avoids melee and refrains from casting, keeping his horse,  pack mule and his boy well clear of the danger.
