    Sorry, before I make my post I notice RoC was making a Spot or Search check of some sort with the results unrecorded atm. What stuff did we find RoC?

    Personally, I think both Sheila and Nicholas managed to see the hands and pairs of light. Basically everything in the last paragraph.

    oops, sorry for the late response here (and for my absences, though I'm done with my summer job so I should have more post-time for a few weeks).

    Ridai was completely right about the spot checks simply revealing the following text.

    Hey, sorry for the delay, I almost forgot about this I'll go post immediately. It won't happen again.

    Um... Would either of you two have AIM or Skype so we might be able to keep in touch?

    Okay, then. Just noticed a couple of things. First of all, we should probably update gear a bit.

    Nicholas: I believe that you picked up a couple of charms in the ripped room of your mansion and the bottle of blue liquid (both weigh 0 pounds). You have 1 pound of jerkey and a sack weighing 2 pounds in its own right. Also, at one point you were holding a heatless torch with you in the first general store. You mentioned putting it away but I'm not certain if you were taking it with you or leaving it in the store.

    Sheila: Unless you dropped it at some point and I have forgotten, I believe that you have a crossbow and some bolts on hand.


    On another topic, I was thinking over the possibility of allowing you guys to take 20 on Search checks, seeing as it allows me to hide items and fits the SH expectation of searching for equipment/keys/useful items. I have even come up with a (hidden) mechanic to keep you from doing so too much or too often (or at least doing so safely). What are your thoughts on the matter?

    Edit: Dangit. Forgot that I was doubleposting.

    Sheila actually has an unopened bottle of wine or some sort of alcohol from her father's house too. (I'm pretty sure that was shortly after Nicholas died the first time) But aside from that yeah that's it.

    It sounds like a good idea as well... Both of us are pretty mediocre on our skill checks The hidden mechanic does sound like a good idea, perhaps as if we need something accomplished in the room first (like a puzzle) or that we can't take 20 if we don't have the time to search around.

    Sorry about the lack of bookkeeping, I corrected the issues. Nicholas dropped the torch.

    I'm a bit leery about taking 20 to search most of the time, simply because of the amount of time needed to do that. People would only search that long and thoroughly if they absolutely knew there was something in that room.

    In the SH games, looking for items takes second, because the character's head turns towards them, they often stick out from the background and there is also a small light effect to alert the player, I think (at least when the flashlight shines on it). Could be wrong about the last part, though.

    So stopping to make some kind of perception check doesn't sound too thrilling to me. It actually works against the eery atmosphere most of the time, with the exception of when you're going for stress in the form of forcing the players to search for something under time pressure.

    Good point, Ridai.

    I suppose that taking 20 (and the time needed to do so) really would take away from the atmosphere. It was just something that I had been considering.

    Realms, if I may ask (and to give some conversation while I'm at college ) How long have you had this game/campaign planned before you opened the recruitment thread if I might ask?
