It's actually Siobhan's Grandfather's note book but either way he entrusted it to us and if we have a shot at opening it safely we'd like to try.

Right, Siobhan's from Hornblower's Hill with Grandfather and Amethyst is from Hornblower's Rest with Grandmother... keeping those facts straight. Going to have to go back and go over origin stories again.

Well considering Amethyst thought she could actually make a DC. 37 after getting the Tools from the Dwarves, admittedly on a perfect roll and using every trick in her book (ha, book pun) and now the Dc is down to 30, we would just need her to try and get a moderately solid result.

Thank you for the answers. Smiley  And yes, it can be very hard to remember what happened to whom and when.  That dragonhide(?) book hauled out of the fire has been a long-standing mystery, however, so it lodged pretty well - even when I forgot 'minor' things like having an elven cloak...

Anyway, given the substantial passage of time, could she Take 20 for picking that lock?  =)

Oh... the silvered cedeku: are those replacing the 'normal' ones that the two of us had (i.e. they took away ours, and gave us back upgrades)?

And what can be made out of the inscriptions on the blades?


As for the languages... the board used to have every language attached to a specific colour in a drop-down menu, but when the code updated some time ago that went poof, sadly.  You can dig up the original colour schemes on many people's character sheets - often employing colours that no longer appear at all in the default 'Change Color' menu, though they do still work.

Yes, you have lost your old cedeku and gained alchemical silvered versions.

That's fair, unlocking the book in the week or so you've had since you've received both the tools and had the lock cleaned is a reasonable amount of time. Taking 20 is absolutely within reach and able to unlock the book.

The words inscribed upon the cedekus written in Courtier are simple phrases as follows: The past is a lesson. The present is the gift. The future is your motivation.

Ooohh, nice. Maybe I should pick up TWF and work with both the silvered ceduku and the Ashblade.

Not a bad way to go, honestly. When you next have a chance to level up, it'll be an interesting choice.

Amethyst's certainly got a suitable mix of knowledges to be able to explain why silver's relevant to fighting the Shadow, and to specifically state its usefulness against astiraxes. Smiley

Without much ado, 9 days are going to pass without much trouble. To help speed things up, every 3 days worth of travel you will get 1 check to see how well  you are doing.

Choose your hunters, I will then utilize the pool of rolls to see how people are going to do. Decide how fast you are going to travel, (i.e. half speed for no penalty to your survival checks or regular speed at a -5 penalty.)

Dunk will trap at night and help with hunting as he has some stealth, though doesn't know the local animals that well.

It sounded like we preferred faster moving and hunger over slow and fuller bellies.  So standard speed I think.

Shambling back in after another spell of time lost to dopily ill haziness....

Foraging at full speed in Central Erenland, Amethyst's on a net +2 for Survival rolls, which is enough to bring in some useful food moderately often.  Her stealth is now +18 with the elven cloak (rising to +20 vs Shadow).  She'd also be quite willing to skulk around and help with hunting, though she wouldn't personally be useful against many things bigger than a rabbit (+3 to hit with ranged attacks, but -1 damage with her sling due to low strength).

Right, well I better throw my hat into the ring.

Total of +12 (+14 in Central Erenland). Down to +9 when moving at standard speed.
Also at a solid +14 to Stealth checks.

Okay, that's really helpful to have in front of me. Generally don't worry about your attack rolls, for general hunting we'll just go with survival and stealth checks. If something larger comes up that'll be a separate encounter.

As for the first 9 days, between Eirik and Dunkin's skill with other party members help, you've earned 32 days worth of trail rations. For your party, between all medium creatures and small creatures, you'll need 8 days of trail rations to fully feed the party per day. Which means 72 trail overall.
You'll need to subtract 40 from your current running total.

That being said, you have covered 150 miles, which is a solid distance. But perhaps more importantly, you didn't slow down.

Well I was sort of expecting a reply from Dunkin, oh well, live and learn I guess.

Sorry to keep imposing on you but as you two are the scouts for the moment, the group is going to listen to what you decide to do.

Writing out large group discussions is an interesting exercise, but it's quite time consuming as well.

No need to apologise - sorry (again, again, and yet again) for disappearing from view.  Maybe one day I'll get RL under control....
