    Sorry for my lackluster posting so far, had a few RL issues and found it hard to get into character. Doing better now though, so should be a bit more onto it!

    I didn't originally because it seem like the DM wanted to push past the scene. Anyway, as of now, scene continued.

    Looking for adjudication on the Light Form ability, two questions:

    1) It references the Bralani's Wind form ability, which in turn references wind walk. Can Sikhī, like with wind walk, get propelled along at 600ft per round?

    2) How visible is Sikhī, on a bright normal day, in light form?

    Yes, you do get the poor maneuverability though.

    Like a shining ball or bolt of light, so very.

    So, there hasn't been a single post here or in the IC from Da'Shain, which would explain why I had no idea who Todorakh was or that they were supposed to be part of the game.

    If Illven is alright with taking Todorakh on as an NPC, using him as a scout would be ideal. However, if he would prefer to play things out as if Todorakh was never part of the adventure at all, I would also understand that.

    We will need some form of ruling on that before we proceed, as it could change things.

    Some rolls for the encounter at hand:

    Diplomacy for a good first impression: (1d20+28)[39] and (2d8b1)[5]

    And Knowledge: Nobility for proper etiquette: (1d20+13)[21] and (2d8b1)[2]

    Rolling here prior to posting so, if I get horrid rolls, I can act appropriately.

    In regards to timing: (28 (normal) + 14 (token)) / 2 (Epic Tales) * 3 (Lingering Performance) = 63 rounds. Or 6 minutes and 18 seconds.

    And 8 minutes + 8 rerolls for the blessing bit. Although ideally I won't have to use all of that for this bit.
    Back on my normal work schedule. Updates will happen when I can finangle them at work or on my nights off on Monday and Friday (unless I get caught up doing something else).

    Your understanding is appreciated.

    Right. Six minutes and some change. It takes a full minute of diplomacy to influence an attitude, plus a round or more to make a request. So at 11 rounds each, that's five people... assuming you get the token now.

    While waiting for Illven's next post, who's up for being on the panel for Darshee's Experiment? No IC rewards, just fun. The experiment will fail, of course, because the templates involved all turn the subject evil. But it's an experiment she'd try if she didn't know that.

    ... more like an example of why splitting up a group is bad. Sept 7th, we asked to talk to the acquaintances. Sept 9th King & Queen said sure. Sept 10th we split up. Queen apparently gave orders to gather the help on Sept 11th as one half the party searched the bedroom. Diary found Sept 13th, diary read Sept 14th-21st.

    Oct. 15th, after the other half of the party has apparently finished with the diary, the half of the party waiting for the palace staff with connections to the princess to arrive is still waiting.

    From a personal perspective, I'm not suggesting moving on because I don't think it would be useful to talk to the palace staff, but because it looked like the palace staff got lost in the shuffle and we need to keep the game moving. We're probably done with the King and Queen, though.

    Even if youdon't have anything specifically to say, you could post what your character would be doing while waiting; readying an action in case a fight breaks out, or they try to flee, or just hiding in the fog, or whatever.

    How many active participats do we currently have? The "I can only take three party members" bit may be a moot point.

    Edit:
    Additionally: Anyone who doesn't need to breathe can simply hop in my portable hole. Anyone who can keep up with the 50 mph of Shadow Walk (Wind Walk is 60 mph, for instance) can travel in parallel.

    Edit 2: Also: Do we currently have a telepath in the party? (Edit 4: Yes, Quill)

    Edit 3: Posters in the last two weeks:
    Jack_Simth - caster
    Illven - DM
    Genth - 1
    Lord Bayushi - 2
    Gunhaven - 3
    Last 30 days is the same list. So... Caster, three party PC's, ten NPC's makes 13 people brought along (edit 5: One of whom has personal Wind Walk as an at-will: Sikhī Pabhāvatī; one of which doesn't need to breath: Quill). Am I OK calling that question a moot point at this point?

    They weren't in the deal from the get-go.

    Honestly, though, most horses in real life will meander back home, if given a bit of time. Which mostly just means they'll show up at the palace, given that's where they came from. If they're in palace colors, most people will leave them alone, although the official patrols will likely take notice ... but that's not harmful to the horses. Additionally, the queen did mention they've got intelligence assets in quite a few places. So they'll be fine, provided they don't get eaten by goblins. But then, if that's a serious possibility, then the palace doesn't have control over the country, so....
