Rennit and Jonas also show up in the sauna, and you are now doomed to have those creepy fuckers make arch little references to, "What happened that night in the sauna," for the rest of this campaign. So let it be written; so let it be done.
Per my earlier comment, Georgie's fire resistance 5 means that he is effectively unable to benefit from a sauna, short of stoking it to temperatures that would cause all of the other PCs to suffer heatstroke within just a couple of minutes.
Supper is adequate.
Attempts to pull together rumors fall short of their goal that evening, because frankly it's been a long day. But the party continues asking around for a few hours the next morning (since you stopped tonight, it's going to take you two days to get to Port Hope whether you push hard or not).
A total of five hours' effort, counted across the evening of 1 Verdil and the morning of 2 Verdil, turns up these factoids:
Wæs se grimma gæst Grendel haten,mære mearcstapa, se þe moras heold
Did we used to have a plot hook thread to keep up with these loose threads we could follow later?
I think that was in Mike's game.
I also had one.
Can we get it back? As much as I understand "Kill Cole" is plot hook #1, it would be nice to have a list of side quests to do if, let's say, Cole doesn't come back into this plan of existence again anytime soon. Or is really dead.
How much was breakfast? With the 5cp left over Avar brought drinks for Avar and Chuul to share in the sauna. Or did he?
Breakfast may be had for 1 cp, although it consists of bread and preserves with tea.
"The Bastards." I love it. XD
You should get in on my Only War game. It follows a regiment of penal troopers dubbed "The Emperor's Bastards" or just "Bastards" for short. Never have a seen a bigger squad of retards and fuck ups. But they get the job done.
@Talanall, if you don't mind, could add the gathered info related to the carvings to that hook. Both about the halfling guy that collects them and about the person that sold one to someone from Port Hope to fund their shop in Golden Sheaves. Figured if we pursue it, it would be good to have it in one place and I don't want to mess up the nice narrative of your thread by tossing junk in it.
Also, I just dropped the seeds in the mail. I'm hoping it had enough postage, so tell me if you don't see it by mid next week at the latest. I still have plenty left.
Done. And thank you so much for the seeds. I'm super excited.
If you want, I can send you my seed, too! Just say the word.
That's a very generous offer. I'll get with you when I'm ready.
