    And if that's still unclear:

    It's an amulet of word twisting - magic item compendium page 71. +4 to Diplomacy / Sense Motive / Bluff / Intimidate, and 1/day you can use tongues on yourself for 50 minutes. ^_^

    Nice passive bonuses there. I have a vestige that can do Tongues in a 30ft radius, though it's kind of a gamble. If I fail the check I can't use Bluff without incurring cumulative penalties, and even if I succeed I can't tell lies in an unfamiliar language. But it's always on and lets me speak.

    How many language spells can our local friendly wizarddruid rustle up?

    0, I didn't take comprehend language or tongues. I can speak with animals and plants if needed though. If anyone else is good at speaking, they could be near Sutremaine's character as they do it and speak that way. Still, I think fifty minutes could be enough for us, the vestige could be sued to convince them to give us time to speak with there leaders, and we use the amulet when speaking with the leaders.

    Is everyone ready for us to arrive at the pinkskin's camp?

    Certainly. Unless we want to spend a little more time deciding who's going to do what.

    And we can do that while we're sneaking around the edge of the clearing, which would probably be the better time to do planning anyway.

    Although as a heads up, be sure Mr. Klunky in his full plate and tower shield are far, far away when any sneaking begins. ^_^

    While my response was yes as I think it makes sense, the actual statement on telepathy is:

    When a vitalist reaches 3rd level, all willing members of his collective (including the vitalist himself) can communicate with each other telepathically, even if they do not share a common language.
    So I do suppose it's open to interpretation, as it doesn't /expressly/ state that you can. Figured I'd put it here in case the DM would rather view it a different way.

    Playing someone who doesn't want people worrying about how hard his abilities are for him is neat. Just keep on truckin' for the Tribe. It's fun having a dichonomy between what he's /thinking/, and how he's acting and saying. ^_^

    Sorry for not posting yesterday, didn't feel well.

    Considering your speed as a group you have two choices:

    If you go straight for the edge, you'll be there by mid-afternoon.
    Or you could wait and try to get there either in the evening or in the morning.
    What you know:

    - They start working in the morning, take a break at noon and then work until evening.

    If we get there mid-afternoon we could watch them for a while before we rest ourselves.

    Hey, could someone doublecheck my point buy please? Sheet's here, and the left-hand column is adjusted for race and for two ability raises to Charisma.

    Figured it out, apparently 12 plus 4 is not 18...

    Okay, so we currently have no idea how the humans are going to react to us, though based on the results of the Knowledge checks I made we could go and talk to some elves if there are any nearby. If we did decide to go for a kidnapping attempt now, what could we do mechanically?

    Hurm. I don't think kidnap is a good idea yet. If we're set on it though, the best I can think of is to wait for one to get stuck and shepherd him off...still, that's very noticeable. I wouldn't want to try anything of the sort until we try the diplomacy.

    I'm not supporting the kidnaping either, we'll have to take a risk.

    EDIT: But I'm for approaching them at night, maybe even this one.

    It's still around sunset, right? If rweird can find their front door we could come knocking there while it's still earlyish at night and make a better impression than if we came out of the woods. The Tongues ability from the amulet should last enough to let us start talking tonight.

    Fine by me. Has the added advantage of all the workers and most of the combat types being at the end of a long day rather than the beginning.

    If we want to kidnap someone, my spell Phantasmal Assailants can do 8 Dex/Wis damage per casting (disbelief negates, will half), two of them should take one of them out until we can question them. I have two prepared. I still don't want to kidnap someone because it would ruin our chance at negotiations.

    GnomeGninjas, please specify if you are speaking via the link or not with "" or <>, I'm having trouble telling whether I can hear you and respond or not.

    Three players for going in now, four against kidnapping. I think it'll be fine if we start heading for the central keep.

    It is still several hours till sunset. (The DM said we arrived mid-afternoon, I don't think he said the sun set.)

    Yep its now maybe 4:30pm where you are. You arrived at the scout's camp at 3 planned a bit, then slowly went to the edge and are now there.

    you took a direct path if i remember correctly. so you are at the edge where it is closest to the tribe camps.

    You hid about 50' behind the edge with one of you going bird and sitting on a tree at the very edge, so it would be like this:

    Are we in the middle of the semicircle, directly between the Chief's hut and the dark tower, or did we move south? I can't really tell.

    You haven't used it yet so I guess yes?

    EDIT:

    Okay since you seem ready to go I'll need a marching order. Any attempt of approaching your target pinkskin (or the camp as I haven't figured out which version you are attempting) with subtlety flies out of the window since well, you are riding a Landshark.

    Due to this fact, any attempt at Intimidation while the Landshark is with you gains a +5 circumstance bonus.
