    Alright, I think Medinah is waiting on a response from Jalil and Shaur and Amirah on Alvah. I am timeskipping to the meeting tonight to keep the game moving.

    I will update quest XP from the Vertasi quest tonight, when I have my DMG handy. If there's something anyone wanted to do in town, now would be a good time to post that (you can also assume you did it without making a post of it).

    I'm OK with moving on, unless Scylfing wants to add something to the trip - and we can do that in split narration. As to Alvah, we can assume Amirah gave him a briefed backstory: Creator created Amirah, didn't like the fact she had a will of her own, tried to destroy her, she ran away, boarded a ship, eventually ended up in the Pirate Hunters. She wouldn't reveal she used to be a pirate, nor the details about her creator. She'd also make a point about how she isn't "made of insects" but that she is the insects (and arachnids, and other invertebrates). But I've played the "alien creature" card a lot in my last few posts, so I'll save it for some other time.

    Yeah that's fine, feel free to skip ahead to tonight. I think your post pretty well covered the atmosphere of their trip to town, GW, and if I can think of anything to add I'll just do that in a split post.

    That's the problem with history majors nowadays, they're way over-specialized and don't know squat outside their concentration. Ask Rahman a question about History of Alchemy and he'd probably rattle on for hours.

    With only a +10 History bonus Jalil can't hit the 33, so not bothering to roll that. Not unsurprising that the other merchant families are getting involved in hunting the pirates as well.

    Oh, good. Please: go ahead and paraphrase it for the rest of us. If you don't want to say it out loud, you can always have Amirah get everyone up to speed silently without interrupting the captain.

    Grey_Wolf : I almost forgot. Alvah is quite the storyteller and didnt had time to tell you much about himself (as he does take time to describe his tales ).

    You've learned that he worked on the Midnight Mirage a few years ago and had to leave the crew two years ago to get to his dying mother side.

    He told you a few adventures he've got on the midnight Mirage. You also learned that he had been working on this ship before that period as well (a long time ago), but left it to do some adventures on the continent.

    Oh, I thought the backstory was established as him having been on the ship ten years ago. I think Amirah, Kihtsah and Rahman are all established as relatively recent additions to the crew, so I think only Medinah would remember him, but he would know Teshiq, who he is being called in to replace. We can just say that Shaur explained to him that Teshiq was leaving to find and rescue Hakhpur.

    NP, are you waiting on a PM of some sort from me to convey your report, or is it just RL getting in the way of posting? Let me know ASAP, so we can move this scene forward.

    Likewise, I think we're waiting on NP's internets to start working again.

    There is a reason Medinah hasn't said a word in the conference yet, by the way. Just sayin.

    While we wait, we could make an OOC decision on our next move - unless we are about to get railroaded (which isn't Shadow Elf's style), as I see it we have three options:
    1) Go pirate hunting for the rest of the thematically named pirates
    2) Go treasure hunting for whatever big revelation sword brain is about to unveil
    3) Go head hunting and sail into the middle of the war.

    Which one do we want to do? As a player, I'd say 2, but Amirah will prefer 1.

    Ummm... sorry, I should've explained. "Treasure" in this context means "magical atomic bomb". We have a ritual that could blow the entire enemy fleet sky-high (according to the legends) and one of our sidequests is to translate it so we can use it. Amirah hasn't had much luck with her research, but it feels like Rahman has had a breakthrough.

    We have time for 3, though. The war isn't going to be solved in a night. I mean, we'll see what the captain says, but I suspect we should have time for a few more sidequesting before plunging head-first into the war.

    Grey Wolf has pretty much correctly surmised your options at this point. Three options may not seem like much, but know that I like choices to have consequences in the game, so picking any of the three, and how you go about them, will affect the other threads as well (for example, the Dvernin being apprehended by the Gift. If you'd gone for the Dvernin, Vertasi would have been taken by the Gift and you'd know less about that plot, but perhaps more about others). Of course, if you guys come up with an option 4 totally out of left field, I am happy to plan around it and run with it.
