[4/28/2014 10:43:39 PM] The Game: Okay, so. Story.
[4/28/2014 10:44:20 PM] The Game: Alrighty, let’s start from the beginning. Not sure how much everyone remembers from the battle at Illium, so I’m going recap a bit there too
[4/28/2014 10:46:28 PM] The Game: After I drank all those potions and got a that interesting camoflague effect, I went off to see if we could find the summoning portal for Tiamat. By the way, I totally plan on trying that potion combination again. Potion mixology I think really could be something interesting to experiment in. A bit expensive and risky, but it could open up new fields of magical research and study
[4/28/2014 10:46:33 PM] The Game: Anyway
[4/28/2014 10:47:13 PM] The Game: Thanks for pulling a dragon away, not sure if I would’ve tripped one of their senses if there had been two
[4/28/2014 10:47:45 PM] Ryan Walters: Yeah, that only cost Feeps his hind quarters
[4/28/2014 10:48:26 PM] The Game: Oof, ouch. Though, not such a bad cost for Illium I would say
[4/28/2014 10:48:35 PM] Ryan Walters: He was repairable
[4/28/2014 10:49:01 PM] The Game: Oh good. I was wondering who took charge of repairing him with his creator not exactly in a condition to do the repairs
[4/28/2014 10:51:04 PM] The Game: so, after getting past the dragon that remained, I found a shaman performing a ritual for the portal for Tiamat
[4/28/2014 10:52:23 PM] The Game: I was contemplating letting the ritual finish and then countering the ritual after the fact.
[4/28/2014 10:52:57 PM] The Game: buuuuut that was going to take about 10 minutes or so and I wasn’t sure how long you guys would fair against one of the chromatic dragons
[4/28/2014 10:53:35 PM] The Game: countering the ritual as its happening is magnitudes harder but it was the better option
[4/28/2014 10:54:18 PM] The Game: and as we had discussed, worst comes to worst, I was going to crack dear old friendkey’s portal on top of Tiamat’s to cancel them both out, so at least there was a plan B in case I blew it
[4/28/2014 10:54:46 PM] The Game: so, good news was that I just barely managed to counter the ritual right.
[4/28/2014 10:55:13 PM] The Game: Bad news, as you all saw, waaaas that I was gone
[4/28/2014 10:55:30 PM] The Game: I woke up alone on a mountain of gold and broken toys
[4/28/2014 10:55:53 PM] The Game: I hadn’t been out long, I figured, since the potions I drank were still in effect
[4/28/2014 10:56:51 PM] The Game: And… after taking a bit of a closer look, it so happened that I wasn’t as along as I imagined myself to be
[4/28/2014 10:57:09 PM] The Game: The Red Dragon was just having a grand old time being invisible on top of her horde
[4/28/2014 10:57:55 PM] The Game: So I activated fly and tried to leave the horde and cave as quietly as possible, but Red somehow noticed
[4/28/2014 10:58:12 PM] The Game: and, rather politely actually, asked if I was looking for something
[4/28/2014 10:58:30 PM] The Game: showing off the fact that I no longer had Fiendkey since it was now in her posession
[4/28/2014 11:01:28 PM] The Game: so, I did what any reasonable intelligent being would do
[4/28/2014 11:01:59 PM] The Game: tried to amicably talk to Red
[4/28/2014 11:02:38 PM] The Game: Something along the lines of “Why yes, I do think I should be looking for that. How thoughtful of you.”
[4/28/2014 11:03:17 PM] The Game: Red chortled and I got scared out of my gourd and ran off accidentally
[4/28/2014 11:03:38 PM] The Game: before I knew what I was doing, my body was out of the cave as I was thinking of how to respond.
[4/28/2014 11:04:32 PM] The Game: So, outside the cave. I was on some crazy floating island. It looked to be an abandoned mechanical toy factory of an incredibly skilled craftsman
[4/28/2014 11:05:03 PM] Ryan Walters: you must have felt right at home :D
[4/28/2014 11:06:35 PM] The Game: Yes, quite. Red dragon camping out there and all. Right at home, Maziel, right at home.
[4/28/2014 11:07:01 PM] The Game: I think the word fascinated would better describe my feelings once the mind-altering fear wore off
[4/28/2014 11:07:20 PM] The Game: speaking of which, that was still going strong when I exited the cave
[4/28/2014 11:07:58 PM] Ryan Walters: (face turns serious) I completely understand your fear, by the way. Those things put fear in the hearts of anything not a Kender
[4/28/2014 11:08:41 PM] The Game: I’d trade a spell slot or two for courage like that now seeing how helpful it could’ve been
[4/28/2014 11:08:59 PM] The Game: Hmm, I wonder if that could be a spell in itself… should look into that
[4/28/2014 11:09:28 PM] The Game: In any event, above the cave was a dilapidated observatory that I flew up to for a bit of hiding
[4/28/2014 11:10:08 PM] The Game: I cast a minor illusion in front of the cave of myself to try and put a bit of indirection between Red and I to see if that might mitigate the fear
[4/28/2014 11:10:36 PM] Ryan Walters: Potion of Kender Karelessness?
[4/28/2014 11:11:11 PM] Ryan Walters: sorry, continue
[4/28/2014 11:11:13 PM] The Game: Red saw straight through it, naturally, but I was half expecting that. It was able to get me a few words in though.
[4/28/2014 11:11:58 PM] The Game: So apparently, the dragons exude fear and it’s a toggle-able thing for them
[4/28/2014 11:12:36 PM] The Game: After I mentioned that I might have some interesting information for her, she turned off her fear aura so that I might speak more easily
[4/28/2014 11:13:47 PM] The Game: Since the time I knew Red had the staff, I had been devising how I might get it back. I had realistically no chance of stealing it back or winning it through froce.
[4/28/2014 11:13:56 PM] The Game: so a trade would be my best option
[4/28/2014 11:14:53 PM] The Game: First, for my life, an idea on how to expand Red’s territory.
[4/28/2014 11:15:56 PM] The Game: I had let her in on the information about Orcus’ period of weakness. If Red were to take advantage of this, then perhaps she could gain territory and pillage more treasure for her hoard from it
[4/28/2014 11:16:19 PM] The Game: This wasn’t enough to also get the staff back
[4/28/2014 11:16:57 PM] Ryan Walters: You didn’t trade any… names, did you?
[4/28/2014 11:16:58 PM] The Game: The chromatic dragons, or maybe just Red at least, has some sort of working deal with Baba Yaga
[4/28/2014 11:17:43 PM] The Game: I’m pretty sure I understand the value of a true name. I wouldn’t trade my life for something that valuable
[4/28/2014 11:17:56 PM] Ryan Walters: (y)
[4/28/2014 11:18:18 PM] The Game: Though, that would’ve been an interesting alternate plan B to saving Illium, come to think of it…
[4/28/2014 11:18:43 PM] The Game: Ah well, didn’t need that
[4/28/2014 11:19:42 PM] The Game: So because Red has affiliation with Baba Yaga, she did not want to give up the staff. Were Baba Yaga to find out that she had the staff in her posession and then lost it somehow, it would not look well on her.
[4/28/2014 11:20:24 PM] The Game: That being said, letting Baba Yaga possibly get her staff back is not exactly something that seemed in our best interest so I appealed to what I hoped to be Red’s driving motivation
[4/28/2014 11:20:25 PM] The Game: gold
[4/28/2014 11:20:41 PM] The Game: You remember that massive pile of gold in Nerul’s temple?
[4/28/2014 11:21:02 PM] Ryan Walters: (nod)
[4/28/2014 11:21:05 PM] The Game: I figured it wouldn’t really hurt if Red knew about it
[4/28/2014 11:21:35 PM] The Game: the pile there was significantly larger than her current horde and Red’s pile is also part broken toys
[4/28/2014 11:21:56 PM] The Game: but there was a catch, Red couldn’t enter the shadowfell on her own
[4/28/2014 11:22:21 PM] The Game: and she wouldn’t let me go or have the staff until she saw the gold with her own eyes
[4/28/2014 11:22:28 PM] The Game: I did let her know about the curse beforehand
[4/28/2014 11:22:43 PM] The Game: but not also without letting her know that I figured the curse would be of no issue to her
[4/28/2014 11:23:36 PM] The Game: with that said, Red requested (demanded really, I suppose. I didn’t quite have a choice unless I wanted to choose not existing) that I be her guide
[4/28/2014 11:24:16 PM] The Game: So Red flew and I directed. By the way, riding a dragon is pretty much the coolest thing I’ve ever done.
[4/28/2014 11:24:46 PM] The Game: Or perhaps on par with sealing a massive ominous existence-threatening portal
[4/28/2014 11:25:44 PM] The Game: Red and I got to the temple. The avatar was there at the top and also with a new buddy. Dunne’s alive, by the way.
[4/28/2014 11:26:13 PM] The Game: But he’s more out of it than normal. He was silent and did not recognize me at all.
[4/28/2014 11:27:01 PM] The Game: Didn’t make any sort of move towards me at all. A touch creepy, in truth, but I figured that it was no longer quite Dunne but just his body acting as host for something Nerul related
[4/28/2014 11:27:05 PM] Ryan Walters: On 4/28/14, at 11:25 PM, The Game wrote:
>Dunne’s alive, by the way.
Figures. I’m guessing more dead now than alive. Twisted and evil
[4/28/2014 11:27:37 PM] The Game: Perhaps. He certainly wasn’t the Dunne I remember.
[4/28/2014 11:27:38 PM] Ryan Walters: yeah, that sounds about right
[4/28/2014 11:28:10 PM] The Game: so I paid the avatar similarly to how Zan paid for us to get in last time and brought Red to the cursed gold
[4/28/2014 11:28:14 PM] The Game: Oh!
[4/28/2014 11:28:24 PM | Edited 11:28:27 PM] The Game: Dragons can shapeshift, it seems
[4/28/2014 11:28:31 PM] Ryan Walters: O_O
[4/28/2014 11:28:35 PM] The Game: When we landed, she turned into a human
[4/28/2014 11:28:46 PM] Ryan Walters: well, I guess we should have guessed that
[4/28/2014 11:28:57 PM] The Game: not sure if she can do any other forms, but she can definitely do human
[4/28/2014 11:30:21 PM] The Game: a quite beautiful woman at that too
[4/28/2014 11:30:43 PM] The Game: I would imagine most men to fall head over heals were they to see her out of context of her being a dragon
[4/28/2014 11:30:53 PM] The Game: or perhaps even in that context. Not truly sure on that one
[4/28/2014 11:31:09 PM] The Game: ostensibly why dragonborn exist.
[4/28/2014 11:31:30 PM] The Game: So with Red in human form, we traveled to the cursed gold
[4/28/2014 11:31:51 PM] The Game: And, let me tell you, she was beside herself with how much gold was there
[4/28/2014 11:32:12 PM] The Game: without so much as a second thought, she gave the staff back and immediately began to work on a countercurse
[4/28/2014 11:32:35 PM] The Game: Which… was going to take a while
[4/28/2014 11:32:47 PM] The Game: and I didn’t exactly want to be in Red’s presence longer than I had to.
[4/28/2014 11:33:34 PM] The Game: It was rather enjoyable, honestly, to work with her. Not an experience I thought I would have the pleasure of.
[4/28/2014 11:33:48 PM] The Game: but to be there when I was no longer of use? Not exactly the best of plans
[4/28/2014 11:34:10 PM] The Game: Problem here was getting out
[4/28/2014 11:35:04 PM] The Game: With no raven or dragon to fly me out, I didn’t have much other option to leave other than to fly by my own power
[4/28/2014 11:35:25 PM] The Game: two hours of flight time, the most I can do in a day, would just just give me enough distance to get out
[4/28/2014 11:35:53 PM] The Game: but that doesn’t account for whatever manner of beast or monster or encounter I might have while flying
[4/28/2014 11:36:26 PM] The Game: that was a wager I was willing to make though since the odds I think were more in my favor there than with dealing with Red after she had her gold
[4/28/2014 11:37:00 PM] The Game: as luck would have it, I made it out with no interruption
[4/28/2014 11:37:18 PM] Ryan Walters: (clap)
[4/28/2014 11:37:47 PM] The Game: got out of shadowfell as fast as I could on foot with a couple of something chasing after me
[4/28/2014 11:38:04 PM] The Game: made it back into that temple where a raven was waiting for me with a note
[4/28/2014 11:38:48 PM] The Game: A certain someone’s dying day.
[4/28/2014 11:39:57 PM | Edited 11:40:00 PM] The Game: Looks like Baba Yaga knew the day she would die. I suppose that would come with being an incredibly powerful witch. I wonder if it’s due to old age or what. I do intend to attend however.
[4/28/2014 11:40:01 PM] Ryan Walters: Well, to be fair, if that staff were returned to her, this could have gone a lot differently
[4/28/2014 11:40:22 PM] The Game: which was my next set of problems, actually
[4/28/2014 11:40:40 PM] The Game: as you can see, the staff is not on me
[4/28/2014 11:41:00 PM] The Game: I figured it wise to not bring it here
[4/28/2014 11:41:43 PM] The Game: Almost reconsidered that, actually. The magic on the staff I imagined would likely be a beacon to her and she’d be able to find it anywhere. I was thinking that at least some obstacle between her and it would be better than none
[4/28/2014 11:42:08 PM] The Game: but I’m hoping that if she hasn’t gone searching for it yet, that she simply just won’t
[4/28/2014 11:42:53 PM] The Game: Hmmm… I… actually wonder if it’s safe to tell this next part
[4/28/2014 11:43:48 PM] The Game: If someone else were to be listening or scrying or something at us because they knew I had the staff, then the next part would reveal location…
[4/28/2014 11:44:00 PM] The Game: not that they perhaps couldn’t have been doing that all long, come to think of it
[4/28/2014 11:44:13 PM] The Game: and already know. Hrm
[4/28/2014 11:44:44 PM] Ryan Walters: would have already seen it, we should be going to pick it up asap
[4/28/2014 11:45:23 PM] The Game: How did you all come here anyway?
[4/28/2014 11:45:40 PM] The Game: I’m still not sure it’s the best idea to bring the staff here
[4/28/2014 11:45:51 PM] Ryan Walters: no, we should get out of here soon
[4/28/2014 11:46:00 PM] Ryan Walters: and when we do, we pick up the staff
[4/28/2014 11:46:34 PM] The Game: the scrying is a guess. I’d sooner wager that it’s safer where I stashed it than safer on us at the goblin market at her dying day party
[4/28/2014 11:47:03 PM] Ryan Walters: I once again agree. After we leave, we get the goods
[4/28/2014 11:47:15 PM] The Game: If we could not take on a dragon and a dragon would bow it’s head to Baba Yaga…
[4/28/2014 11:47:50 PM] The Game: This I much agree this. I didn’t plan to leave it where I left it. Simply a holding spot so I could come here with a bit less to worry about
[4/28/2014 11:48:36 PM] The Game: How safe do you feel about me talking about that location now?
[4/28/2014 11:48:43 PM] Ryan Walters: we’ll worry about that later
[4/28/2014 11:48:46 PM] The Game: Or would you rather me hold on that section of the story until later
[4/28/2014 11:48:49 PM] The Game: that’s what I figured
[4/28/2014 11:49:08 PM] The Game: that also leaves my new form to mystery, but I suppose that’s okay for the time being
[4/28/2014 11:49:15 PM] The Game: not much that can be done about it right now anyway
[4/28/2014 11:50:28 PM] Ryan Walters: well, actually, it can be
[4/28/2014 11:51:45 PM] The Game: is that magical modification agency at the market?
[4/28/2014 11:51:53 PM] Ryan Walters: yep!
[4/28/2014 11:52:04 PM] The Game: I still don’t feel safe doing that
[4/28/2014 11:52:06 PM] Ryan Walters: in fact, it’s over in the festival grounds
[4/28/2014 11:52:15 PM] Ryan Walters: ok, so let’s answer this question
[4/28/2014 11:52:15 PM] The Game: I know what happened to my body
[4/28/2014 11:52:22 PM] The Game: or, rather, I have a hunch I know what happened to my body
[4/28/2014 11:52:28 PM] The Game: but just not how to retrieve it
[4/28/2014 11:52:35 PM] The Game: but I know where it could probably be
[4/28/2014 11:52:44 PM] Ryan Walters: is it a) something you’re comfortable with being permanent, or b) we can handle on our own?
[4/28/2014 11:52:56 PM] The Game: leaning more towards b
[4/28/2014 11:53:18 PM] Ryan Walters: ok
[4/28/2014 11:53:18 PM] The Game: I’m not used to my eyes not adjusting to light well
[4/28/2014 11:53:27 PM] The Game: though I do see much better in the dark
[4/28/2014 11:53:47 PM] The Game: and my balance is all off. It’s weird having long legs. I’m not sure I like it much at all
[4/28/2014 11:55:00 PM] Ryan Walters: (light smile) you get used to that, at least
[4/28/2014 11:55:35 PM] The Game: My plan is to head back to Illium after the goblin market and talk to some of the wizards there to see if we can find a solution
[4/28/2014 11:55:52 PM] The Game: I hope they find this scenario just as interesting as I find it
[4/28/2014 11:58:56 PM] The Game: Right so, that’s most of what’s gone on in the life of Klotonk-and I just realized that I have another loose end in Illium
[4/28/2014 11:59:07 PM] The Game: I need to look into that airship business.
[4/28/2014 11:59:46 PM] The Game: Maybe Smee will be here? I still really want to discuss how he was able to complete the airship design
[4/28/2014 11:59:55 PM] Ryan Walters: that you probably should. We will have an escort again, likely. We managed to get here with one sent from Illium. Royalty connections helped with that one
[4/29/2014 12:00:15 AM] The Game: So how did you all end up here?
[4/29/2014 12:00:40 AM] Ryan Walters: It’s a good thing you spotted me… (somehow. Why do I always fail to blend in the background around here). We were going to presume you dead if you didn’t show up here at some point
[4/29/2014 12:01:19 AM] Ryan Walters: The simple answer is I got an invitation, and one… appeared in Cosmo’s pocket. We also have been… sent some… pleasant… accompaniment.
[4/29/2014 12:02:03 AM] Ryan Walters: We had requested help and a troll representative of one of the fey courts brought us here through the shadowfell
[4/29/2014 12:03:18 AM] Ryan Walters: the other members of the group were lured here by a good time
[4/29/2014 12:04:41 AM] The Game: I have been raving a bit about the goblin market since we knew about it. Good call on that one.
[4/29/2014 12:04:59 AM] The Game: …accompaniment?
[4/29/2014 12:05:15 AM] The Game: you don’t sound all to pleased about it
[4/29/2014 12:05:17 AM] Ryan Walters: We have been sent along a …. hero…. of Kord.
[4/29/2014 12:05:28 AM] Ryan Walters: Allow me to introduce you to Yop
[4/29/2014 12:07:45 AM] Ryan Walters: (Dylan is now a cleric of Kord, and well, he already is blasting everything BUT subtlety)
[4/29/2014 12:09:04 AM] Ryan Walters: (including other people in contests of strength)
[4/29/2014 12:09:05 AM] The Game: and you sound even less pleased about who he is than about the fact that he is accompanying us
[4/29/2014 12:09:42 AM] Ryan Walters: He’s… delightful. And will be a positive member of our team.
[4/29/2014 12:11:37 AM] Ryan Walters: He has his limits though. He lost a duel with some dwarf
[4/29/2014 12:11:51 AM] The Game: Well, I have a feeling that I’ll enjoy his company at least. It may not be arcane, but I’m sure I’ll enjoy watching him cast.
[4/29/2014 12:11:59 AM] The Game: Might even learn a thing or two
[4/29/2014 12:12:14 AM] The Game: I wonder how compatible different magic types are…
[4/29/2014 12:12:46 AM] The Game: /chickenscratchIntoAJournal
[4/29/2014 12:12:57 AM] The Game: Gah, still haven’t gotten used to these new hands either
[4/29/2014 12:13:15 AM] The Game: and I’m sure to get used to them just before we find the solution back to my old self, no doubt
[4/29/2014 12:14:19 AM] Ryan Walters: Well, if I still had doubts that you’re Klotonk, that just made them disappear
[4/29/2014 12:14:46 AM] The Game: Hmm?
[4/29/2014 12:15:12 AM] Ryan Walters: breaking out the journal
[4/29/2014 12:15:14 AM] The Game: Anyway, backpedaling
[4/29/2014 12:15:16 AM] Ryan Walters: very Klotonk
[4/29/2014 12:15:38 AM] The Game: fey representative brought you through the shadowfell
[4/29/2014 12:16:17 AM] The Game: and it was a troll? That seems a touch off (OOC: or I’m just bad with the lore on this?)
[4/29/2014 12:16:26 AM] Ryan Walters: It is odd
[4/29/2014 12:16:37 AM] Ryan Walters: the Troll represents the Green Fey
[4/29/2014 12:17:14 AM] The Game: Oh, lightbulb just went off. I recalled something that might be quite important
[4/29/2014 12:17:22 AM] The Game: Glastieg
[4/29/2014 12:17:39 AM] The Game: might be that she will attend
[4/29/2014 12:17:56 AM] Ryan Walters: she’s definitely here
[4/29/2014 12:18:11 AM] The Game: strong hunch or you’ve confirmed?
[4/29/2014 12:18:30 AM] Ryan Walters: she’s inherited all of Baba Yaga’s major possessions and debts
[4/29/2014 12:18:59 AM] Ryan Walters: she was there in the procession
[4/29/2014 12:19:40 AM | Edited 12:19:42 AM] The Game: (OOC: how much did I miss? Was Klotonk at the procession or did he miss that?)
[4/29/2014 12:20:45 AM] Ryan Walters: (When we sat down after a group headed into a pavilion, that’s when you found us)
[4/29/2014 12:21:32 AM] Ryan Walters: (we then got a callout for some things Baba Yaga left us, but by initial and were called to get them after the ceremony)
[4/29/2014 12:21:41 AM] Ryan Walters: (I got Baba Yaga’s specs)
[4/29/2014 12:21:52 AM] Ryan Walters: (Cosmo gets to summon Baba Yaga’s hut once)
[4/29/2014 12:22:05 AM] Ryan Walters: (You get her FUCKING CAULDRON)
[4/29/2014 12:22:14 AM] The Game: (FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFYESFUCKINGYES)
[4/29/2014 12:22:29 AM] The Game: (ICANSEEEVERYTHING.AGAIN)
[4/29/2014 12:23:06 AM] The Game: (dude. potion mixology is TOTALLY going to be a thing now.)
[4/29/2014 12:24:49 AM] Ryan Walters: (we said we would talk after the ceremony, going on now, except X did say we could retcon things if something critical comes up. I certainly am not here on a mission to harm the glaistig, and you shouldn’t be either with pretty much everyone connected to Baba in a positive way present)
[4/29/2014 12:25:59 AM] The Game: (Oh, pfft. Klotonk doesn’t really have much care in that. It doesn’t really concern him. Too much politics involved.)
[4/29/2014 12:26:37 AM] Ryan Walters: (Good, Taelim didn’t try to send you on a mission to kill her. I basically refused her request on that one)
[4/29/2014 12:27:05 AM] Ryan Walters: (Plus I’m owed double favors if we can get her father)
[4/29/2014 12:27:42 AM] The Game: (We don’t truly have the full story on the whole Glastieg thing yet anyway. Klotonk would have refused on those grounds anyway)
[4/29/2014 12:28:44 AM] The Game: (so yeah, I don’t think I have any retcons that I want to do. If that’s all we’ve done so far, I’m cool with this)
[4/29/2014 12:28:58 AM] Ryan Walters: The others did things
[4/29/2014 12:29:02 AM] Ryan Walters: and the other group did things
[4/29/2014 12:29:24 AM] Ryan Walters: some people met up, some didn’t. I’m told Yop and Cosmo made some shopping friends
[4/29/2014 12:29:48 AM] Ryan Walters: oh, and sadly, Erdan is important somehow. He also got called up for a reward for serving up something to the Glaistig
[4/29/2014 12:29:53 AM] Ryan Walters: we should probably question him on that
[4/29/2014 12:30:06 AM] Ryan Walters: sigh hoping to avoid that pain in the ass
[4/29/2014 12:30:20 AM] The Game: Erdan?
[4/29/2014 12:30:26 AM] Ryan Walters: yeah, that guy
[4/29/2014 12:30:47 AM] Ryan Walters: Also, I’ve discovered Mindy has this conversation muted unless we say a particular word
[4/29/2014 12:30:49 AM] The Game: if you’d be so kind as to demystify for me
[4/29/2014 12:30:50 AM] Ryan Walters: Cosmo
[4/29/2014 12:30:51 AM] Ryan Walters: Cosmo
[4/29/2014 12:30:53 AM] Ryan Walters: Cosmo
[4/29/2014 12:30:56 AM] Ryan Walters: :D
[4/29/2014 12:31:02 AM] Ryan Walters: I can make it ping
[4/29/2014 12:31:21 AM] The Game:
[4/29/2014 12:32:11 AM] Ryan Walters: yeah, I don’t know the full details, but it something like they tried to serve her a meal and entertained her
[4/29/2014 12:32:22 AM] Ryan Walters: and it was enough for them to be recognized and thanked
[4/29/2014 12:32:23 AM] The Game: so let’s try this again
[4/29/2014 12:32:27 AM] Ryan Walters: recency bias, most likely
[4/29/2014 12:32:27 AM] The Game: Erdan?
[4/29/2014 12:32:43 AM] Ryan Walters: but yes, we should probably… interrogate him further
[4/29/2014 12:32:58 AM] The Game: I’m blanking on who this is
[4/29/2014 12:33:58 AM] Ryan Walters: Erdan is the guy preserving the Maestro’s tower
[4/29/2014 12:34:05 AM] Ryan Walters: the one who let us in begrudgingly to see Bargle
[4/29/2014 12:34:14 AM] Ryan Walters: kind of full of himself
[4/29/2014 12:35:18 AM] The Game: Ohhhhhh, okay. That guy
[4/29/2014 12:35:19 AM] Ryan Walters: He was accompanied by a high elf, I think her name was Xillali, the dwarf that Yop lost to… Naora, I think? And whatever friend Cosmo and Yop made, I think it was a halfling
[4/29/2014 12:36:16 AM] The Game: interesting okay
[4/29/2014 12:36:42 AM] Ryan Walters: at the presentation of gifts
[4/29/2014 12:37:03 AM] Ryan Walters: other than that though, there’s a very large shopping opportunity here
[4/29/2014 12:37:14 AM] Ryan Walters: this conversation has lists of stuff available
[4/29/2014 12:37:25 AM] The Game: that was the main reason I wanted to come here in the first place
[4/29/2014 12:37:28 AM] Ryan Walters: and information is a lot more freely available in the market than other places
[4/29/2014 12:37:53 AM] The Game: but then the dying day stuff made it even more important.
[4/29/2014 12:38:25 AM] The Game: Huh, I did not see available items in the chat. I was pretty sure I looked at back log too
[4/29/2014 12:39:47 AM] Ryan Walters: huh, weird, it’s not here

[4/29/2014 12:43:24 AM] The Game: [Tuesday, April 29, 2014 12:40 AM] Ryan Walters:
<<< Consumptive claw – 1500 GP
Drain magic completely out of any item, heal self for 1d8 +2 (base action) Ummmm
[4/29/2014 12:43:26 AM] The Game: might want that
[4/29/2014 12:43:36 AM] The Game: pretty sure I don’t have the gold for it
[4/29/2014 12:43:48 AM] The Game: or that even all of us together would
[4/29/2014 12:43:57 AM] Ryan Walters: … I bought a 2nd +1 magic short sword. I spent all my cash on hand on that
[4/29/2014 12:44:05 AM] Ryan Walters: I still have some other assets available
[4/29/2014 12:44:07 AM] Ryan Walters: but not much
[4/29/2014 12:44:17 AM] Ryan Walters: unfortunately I believe all of our money is on Feeps
[4/29/2014 12:44:24 AM] The Game: but it could be useful in draining charges from fiendkey
[4/29/2014 12:44:26 AM] Ryan Walters: aside from my personal stash
[4/29/2014 12:44:31 AM] Ryan Walters: yeah, I know
[4/29/2014 12:44:42 AM] Ryan Walters: we just can’t afford it without knowing how much we actually have
[4/29/2014 12:44:50 AM] The Game: right
[4/29/2014 12:44:52 AM] Ryan Walters: if we have the funds, we should acquire it, yes
[4/29/2014 12:45:15 AM | Edited 12:45:19 AM] The Game: Pretty sure I don’t have that much. I doubt I have more than 500
[4/29/2014 12:45:28 AM] The Game: I spent a fair sum learning new spells
[4/29/2014 12:45:44 AM] The Game: which I would also likely inquire about. I’d be willing to do spell trades with other wizards around here.
[4/29/2014 12:48:08 AM] The Game: in any event, heading to sleep now
[4/29/2014 12:48:14 AM] The Game: glad I got most of the story out
[4/29/2014 12:48:25 AM] The Game: though my form change is still a mystery
[4/29/2014 12:48:34 AM] Ryan Walters: we’ll be able to talk about that soon
[4/29/2014 12:48:39 AM] The Game: yup
[4/29/2014 12:48:57 AM] The Game: I’m glad that the encounter here was amicable with Baba Yaga. I wasn’t really sure what to expect here
[4/29/2014 12:49:19 AM] The Game: Was it revealed how or when or why she would die?
[4/29/2014 12:49:54 AM] The Game: ………….ijusthadaterribleidea
[4/29/2014 12:50:04 AM] The Game: completely unrelated
[4/29/2014 12:50:27 AM] The Game: and I’m not saying this in character, but I still want to share the terrible idea
[4/29/2014 12:50:43 AM] The Game: I have Baba Yaga’s cauldron and staff
[4/29/2014 12:50:50 AM] The Game: I wonder what would happen if I used the staff to mix..
[4/29/2014 12:51:16 AM] Ryan Walters: that is an interesting thought
[4/29/2014 12:52:04 AM] The Game: that is not the reaction I thought I would get from you
[4/29/2014 12:52:19 AM] The Game: I was more expecting a facepalm and a “don’t you do it”
[4/29/2014 12:53:39 AM] The Game: Hokay. actually going to bed now
[4/29/2014 12:53:48 AM] The Game: ‘night all. Hope you enjoy the tale. :D
[4/29/2014 10:24:38 AM] Mindeh: I would imagine the cauldron and staff are somewhat compatible
[4/29/2014 10:25:01 AM] Mindeh: But do mages typically use their staves to stir?
[4/29/2014 10:25:56 AM] Monasch: No idea. Klotonk probably does know though
[4/29/2014 10:26:12 AM] Ryan Walters: My guess is no
[4/29/2014 10:48:51 AM] Xavier Rodriguez: ’re: troll s goblins etc.
[4/29/2014 10:49:54 AM] Xavier Rodriguez: Fey trolls, fey elves, fey goblins, fey gnomes etc are pretty different from the “D&D standard”
[4/29/2014 10:59:48 AM] Xavier Rodriguez: I think we’re treating the cauldron as a background, mechanically. Along with the glasses and the fairy. But Yeah, I get the feeling she knew Klontonk has the staff, and hes experienced the cauldron, so she expects him to do something with it
[4/29/2014 11:03:45 AM] Xavier Rodriguez: Wands/staves/rods combining with a cauldron is actually a thing. Rare though.
[4/29/2014 11:06:29 AM] Monasch: Yeah, I had a feeling she knew I had it. That was my sinking feeling when I first got the invite. :D
[4/29/2014 11:06:42 AM] Monasch: but it seems like she’s okay with that?
[4/29/2014 11:07:44 AM] Monasch: I’m not following with the background. How is that going to work?
[4/29/2014 11:08:28 AM] Ryan Walters: Use the cauldron as a bonus for making checks involving it
[4/29/2014 11:09:19 AM] Ryan Walters: like, I want to brew a potion, and I have a background involving this cauldron
[4/29/2014 11:09:21 AM] Monasch: It sounds like it’s more of an item that confers a bonus than as a background unless we want the bonus to mechanically only apply to a single user
[4/29/2014 11:09:52 AM] Monasch: Oh, uhh, is Baba Yaga’s brew still in the cauldron?
[4/29/2014 11:10:28 AM] Ryan Walters: probably cleaned out
[4/29/2014 11:10:32 AM] Xavier Rodriguez: Skip down to item and relationship backgrounds. http://www.pelgranepress.com/?p=11434
[4/29/2014 11:11:39 AM] Xavier Rodriguez: And it’s cleared.
[4/29/2014 11:12:26 AM] Monasch: alright, I can dig it
[4/29/2014 11:12:40 AM] Monasch: Awww, okay. A little worrisome. I still wonder what the brew was.
[4/29/2014 11:15:59 AM] Xavier Rodriguez: Plot thread heheheh
[4/29/2014 11:18:59 AM] Monasch: One Klotonk intends to yank at eventually :D
[4/29/2014 11:19:12 AM] Monasch: if it doesn’t find him, that is
