    Fair enough.

    Also, if Soot's translation is correct, and stop ret nar dief translates to "Stop right now, thief," then what does Hou die, Dief translate to?

    Hooboy.

    Did you remember to add the Harmony bonus to that?

    Actually, you brought up a good point. What sort of tool bonus would he have from his paints and brushes?

    Shoulda spent willpower on the frivolous roll.

    I'm really hoping that Dive Bomb is doing something other than proving his lack of survival instincts by standing in front of a (maybe) guard with a loaded hand-cannon.

    Sooo, I know latin, or at least enough of it to embarrass myself in the attempt to speak it. Should I just go ahead and translate what the creature is saying?

    Yeah feel free, I'm just using a lazy online translator because I can't be bothered finding my old latin textbooks.

    What he was meant to say was:

    "Communication failure, attempting alternate language. Is this your prisoner?"


    So feel free to translate it straight yourself or by telling me what words I got wrong

    I think I might have borked it up, that may be actually all he said at the end, but as a question.

    Speaking of your last post. I don't think Grease Spot is near DB and Rinda. Last post had her running up behind the monster somewhere I think.

    Yeah, something like that. She wasn't really sure what she was going to do, and neither am I. At this point, I doubt that she will be doing any thing besides listening to the exchange. Unless the exchange goes south, of course, in which case we go back to fleeing.

    Three!

    So, am I expected to respond to Rinda this turn or the next?

    Yeah, you can respond this turn. She'll carry out whatever instruction you give her during my next GM turn. (Giving her the instruction counts as your active task, unless you plan to use your active task to do some rock-boxing)

    Dictionary.com does a pretty good job, though it can't recognize the input language for you.

    I'll just make up a language next time. You'll all be to blame when everyone is speaking BlasTechion

    Anyway, I know that google translate borked up part of the translation, so sorry to all you latin purists out there. In addition, I find it amusing how the latin word for "with" is considered profanity on the boards XD

    Now, the awkward begins: how do we give the guard a gift without it looking as if we're trying to bribe it?

    Random question: In D&D, each round is about six seconds worth of time. Approximately how much time is each round of cinematic mode worth?
