Well I'm having a good time so far! How the rest of you doing? My rolls are on Coyote under Tests and Trials if anyone wants to look them up. Just saves time on my phone not posting them.

Feel free to do the same for you characters if it's a hassle (I.e. use the same name for all your rolls so I can look them up on Coyote). I will spot check, to keep folks honest, but where's the fun in cheating here!

Preparing spells... Lurn gets 6 prepared spells because of his +5 WIS.

Let's see...
Bless, Healing Word, Guiding Bolt, Shield of Faith, Detect Poison & Disease, Purify Food & Drink.

It's actually so damn hard to choose what spells to prepare, 'cause there's clearly those first four which are must-haves, and then two others to fill, but I know I'll be spending both my spell slots on Healing Word anyway, so I want more Rituals. XD
My game:
Hunters of Letrua; Character list
Also Player / Monster stats, skill lists.

My characters:
Tugs Tails, the goblin that was sort of a trapper and wears a bear's tail at his neck, for some reason - Lair of the Mountain King (Run by Thinks)
Alex Sparo, A city boy, poor of sight, who has learned to manipulate people and make the most of what he, and others, have - Trinity Isles (Run by Mort)
Mehriv Turajin, a Noble Dragonborn Sorcerer sent from his clan because he wasn't dragony enough. - The Wandering Archipelago (Run by Thinks)

Welp, those look like decent choices to me given that we're in the middle of a city-wide shitstorm!

A few of the Ritual spells clerics can get Lurn's already got from either Firbolg or Grave Domain, so the reasonable spells to choose from are surprisingly relevant. XD

So are we using encomberance rules or are we using the basic rules for carrying capacity?

Spells list looks fine, encumbrance is 15*str.

Rodgeir, do you prefer us to provide rolls when we try to do something, or do you prefer to ask for them? In a RL game I'd always wait to be asked, but forum games are a bit slower :)

Go ahead and roll. If I think you need an additional one I will ask for it. It just saves time.

Oh it is the black box just north of the Prefect's Estate. The black lines are major roads. The green unlabeled section between the Elf Quarter is a forest park. The other green area is an open grass park.

Going to bed now...

*Realising the upper limit of my medicine, insight, and perception checks are 31.*
Oh god.

Though it's near impossible, considering it needs a 20 from the check and a 4 from Guidance.

Thinks, I am going to have to slow Vesri down a bit. She is getting a bit too far ahead of the others in time.

Lurn and Joe are probably only 20 minutes behind her in town but I would put them at least an hour back from when she gets to the temple. Jaq is maybe an hour before when Vesri enters town but he should get into the main thread pretty quickly now. Hopefully.

Vesri is a bit south and west from the S in South Trade (in the mixed housing block).

Jaq is at the S in Western Slum.

Joe and Lurn are at the g in the norther Mixed Trade and Housing.

I'm sorry, Fair Lady. I have wronged you. My jest was ill conceited, to even suggest giving the blessings to have granted me to another. I swear to selfishly hoard the luck you grace me with from this day forward. Never against will I offer my rolls to another when they have their own.

Just please, stop pounding my *** with a f***ing jackhammer.

:lol:

When/If you meet up with Vesri, I'm sure she can give you some pointers and explanations as to why Lurm's luck is so bad :D probably an unlucky type of wood in the bit of barricade you tried to cross, or a black cat was looking at you funny or something!

Or maybe you're just saving all your really good luck for when it REALLY matters :)

I like details and I like the current pace :) all is good from my POV!

Going to be out of touch a bit for the next few days tho. I'm in Seattle for a meeting, so my time zone is going to be extra out of synch with yours rodgeir! Will try and at least check in a couple of times a day tho.
