    I think I'll use some sort of orange for Twi, is this easy to see/read?

    How does this world typically view extra planar entities? And how recently should Twi have arrived on the material plane? She's only 8 years old, I'd say anywhere from a couple of days ago to a couple of months would work best.

    @cobaltstarfire: That particular shade of orange is what the forum uses for links, so it would get a little confusing. Might I suggest Light Salmon or Gold?

    Previously, extraplanar entities were extremely rare, but over the past couple of years, various planar portals have been opened, and the opportunistic government which controls the colonies on this campaign's continent was eager to establish trade relations with the civilisations on other planes, so Aarakocra and the like are still very rare, but not unheard of.

    Ok I'll do light Salmon, Gold kind of hurts my eyes.

    I think I'll have her having found her way to the material plane recently (recent days, weeks).

    I'm really bad at describing things, I'll probably draw a picture of Twi to post in OOC sometime tomorrow.


    I'll have her talk to everyone else next time I post, but she's modeled off of Columbo somewhat so I have to do the "oh and one more thing" schtick with her at least once.

    I thought it would be a fun bit to RP, the Count offering Skitarii a horse, then thinking better of it.

    The RAW don't mention a specific speed, just "your speed," so I'm willing to say yes.

    Yeah, I'm writing the Count's reply right now. Sorry about that.

    @JNAProductions: Ooh, new avatar. Shiny!

    @cobaltstarfire: Thanks, I'll try and keep it up as much as I can. In general, I can get online for a brief check-in before work (6:30-7:45), during my lunch break (10:45-11:30), and after work (4:30 on). All time are in Eastern Time (I'm in New York). I'll try to let you know in advance when I'm going to be unavailable. For example...

    @all: This weekend, I'll be leaving my much beloved city, as well as it's fine, fine, connection to the Interwebs, in order to spend some time with my relatives, who live in the middle of nowhere. I'll be on a limited internet connection from Friday afternoon to Sunday evening, but I'll stay as connected as possible.

    Thank you! It's Nox the Xelor. Or possibly, (at least in my headcanon), Nox who is Xelor.

    As for that other bit, life always comes first. Hope you have a good time with your family!

    I'd thumbs up the crap out of your avatar if I could, Xelors are cool, Nox is...well twisted but he was still pretty cool.


    Have a good family visit jkat!

    Was it intentional that the Count has referred to the beasts as both fel and fey, or is that a mistake?

    fell: adjective, literary Of terrible evil or ferocity; deadly. "Sorcerers use spells to achieve their fell ends."
    fey: adjective Having supernatural powers of clairvoyance. "Elves, fairies, and other fey creatures."

    No problem. Is it something small, that we can hand-wave, or is there a purchase you'd like to clear with me first? Never mind, saw your IC post. See my response there.

    Alright, Fel in the nasty sense, rather in the demony sense!

    Here's a drawing of Twi. She's brown with darker brown stripes on her legs and torso, brownish pink beak/hands/feet.

    I sort of feel like big bird is just a giant yellow anthropomorphic kiwi bird now...

    So, I thought it would be an interesting exercise to follow the DMG's guidelines on adventure-building as closely as possible (something I find DMs rarely do), so don't be too surprised if you tend to go through multiple encounters in a single day, often without too many rests. For the beginning of the adventure, however, I will probably go a little easier on you in terms of resting opportunities, both to give you a chance to feel out the party dynamics as well as for reasons of plot. For those of you who don't know, the DMG advises that "most adventuring parties can handle about six to eight medium or hard encounters in a day" (DMG, p. 84), with adjustments for 'easy' and 'deadly' encounters, and that, "over the course of a full adventuring day, the party will likely need to take two short rests, about one third and two-thirds of the way through the day" (DMG, p. 84). If you would like me to either ease up on the encounters or ramp up the difficulty, please don't hesitate to speak up.

    Hey, this is 5e, Bards are full casters too. I'm afraid Hope will have to contact the Bard Association now

    But seriously, I'm cool with that. Bards also get some nice short rest abilities, like Song of Rest and eventually Bardic Inspiration. Plus Vicious Mockery is a fun cantrip.
