This is the OOC thread. You know what it's for. Here's a List-o-Things You Guys Want to Accomplish. Strikethrough indicates a completed item. Green items are in some sense ongoing.

  2. Scry on Cole, if possible with the assistance of Temple-Warden Geddan Burke.
  3. If practical, arrange to provide official notice to the government of Port Hope concerning the Incident at Morville.
  4. If practical, provide notice of confirmed goblin and kobold activity between Morville and Golden Sheaves in the period immediately following the Incident.
  5. If practical, provide assistance to Jalen in authenticating himself at court.
  6. Figure out your next move in your ongoing feud with Cole.
  7. Sell your loot.

    Avar would have mentioned it on the way to the temple that he has news to share regarding the truthsaying of Jalen. He will want to tell others of the meeting as well.

    You want to share OOC as something they should know IC?

    And also, Garren is a no lube, dive in with pants still around ankles kinda guy, isn't he?

    No kidding. He didn't even buy Burke dinner first.

    I don't think you can gently work up to 'and then the town was completely destroyed'. My kids will often try to tell a 20-minute rambling story and I have to say 'tell me what the point is first, then you can tell the full story'.

    I was hoping to recap the meeting at the church before going to the church of Derena but Tal moved forward. Essentially, Avar will share that Jalen has been scheduled for a truthsaying ceremony at the Church of the Blind. If Garren doesnt want to get into the Jalen issue he doesn't need to. His choice though.

    There is more that we can cover IC.

    I went back over transcribing spells from someone else's spellbook in the SRD. It takes pretty much all day for one spell no matter what level it is; so what will likely happen here is that Oskav won't make any progress on his little side quests at all and won't be able to shop for additional spells, either. Stinking cloud will have to suffice, especially if we're leaving ASAP. If that means going to the desert, before Oskav cozies up with Gallielle over hot cocoa and s'mores to swap spells all evening, I'll put the order in for the magic waterskin. All depending on how this conversation with Burke plays out, I guess.

    Depending on what happens in the next little while, Oskav may actually wind up having plenty of time to copy spells. Six days is a long time, but it's not like other members of the party don't have business in town.

    The process of selling all the stuff you've got as loot and then buying goods off the shelf is probably going to eat a few days.

    Wait, didn't Chuul send a note to Burke so that he'd be prepared to scry? Or was the timing just off because of prayers?

    Just timing.

    Georgie still alive? It's been a while, boys. I apologize for that. Slowly - very slowly - but surely I am coming into things.

    Yeah, I haven't gotten around to killing him yet.

    The party still has most of the day ahead of it, so we're going to hit the fast-forward button for a minute and say that they spend that time selling off their loot.

    Chuul gains 677 gp, 05 sp, a ring of sustenance, acrobat boots, and a potion of bull's strength (CL 3rd).

    Georgie gains 1,527 gp, 5 sp, loses acrobat boots, and gains anklet of translocation.

    Darker has already done Alannah's bookkeeping. Well done, him. It looks like MI has already done Oskav's, also.

    Avar gains 2227 gp, 5 sp.

    Please go ahead and update your character sheets to reflect these acquisitions and totals. I realize that several of your characters are planning to do some shopping before you leave town, but this is a convenient moment to get you all squared away individually.

    I was waiting until we got here and will add the gold once the purchases are made since editing is a bitch. 200gp will be given to the church right off the top.

    I will look for items in the interim.

    Updated Chuul's PC sheet to include selling of loot and the night's food, lodgings and libations, which I hadn't done yet.
