    Sorry, should have been clearer, but Amber didn't intend to take along the large tapestry, just the pennant and box. Otherwise she'd be at heavy load already! She did admire its quality, due to her background as tailor.

    We just had a little scare at my house. My laptop would not go past the loading screen. This was frightening because the Way of the Wicked books are stored on my laptop. Fortunately, I disconnected the battery to force the laptop to reboot and we are back up and running again.

    Now to write up the next post.

    I was looking through the later books if way of the wicked, and I found a great resource. There is a timeline of the campaign. It uses real world months. So unless we want to rename the months, it is currently July 24 in the 16th year of the Reign of King Markvadian V called the Brave. It is also the 80th year since the House of Barca fell from power and the House of Darius became the Royal bloodline.

    Neat! I like keeping track of those tidbits. For what its worth, the Golarion calendar does something very similar, though of course they rename the months and days of the week for immersion. Im content either way.

    You may begin working on leveling up your characters

    We will likely have some scenes of roleplaying (If this were a tabletop game, they would likely be handled in downtime)
    So there will be a few weeks before we need to worry too heavily about mechanics.

    Also after skimming through the 7 books in this 6 book series, I have some background knowledge your characters would likely know.

    Spoiler: Amber
    Show
    The Inquisitor who arrested you is Father Mattias Harkon. Silverb, the town you burned is in the Northern Heartlands near the city of Havelyn. The city of Havelyn is governed in name by Richard Thomasson of Havelyn, the grandson of Lord Richard Havelyn. The family suffered a scandal during the Asmodean purges two decades ago. Samuel, the younger son of Lord Richard, was discovered to be a secret worshiper of Asmodeus. He was disowned and burned alive for his heresy. Shortly afterwards the elder son Thomas and his lovely wife died of a plaque shortly after the birth of Richard Thomasson. In disgrace, Lord Richard accepted command of a keep along the watch wall. Havelyn has been ruled by a representative of the church of Mitra until Richard is of age, as is the custom.


    Spoiler: Caleb
    Show
    The city Caleb was based around was Ghastenhall. His mentor was an old learned man who insisted that Caleb refer to Asmodeus as Father when in the city proper as the name Asmodeus draws attention. The mentor is secretly a Priest of Mitra, hence the need to be overly cautious. To this end, the name Caleb's mentor goes by is the Fifth. Caleb also likely knows that there is a small population of vampires in Ghastenhall living in secret. Finally, near Ghastenhall there is a major holy site a short pilgrimage away called the Vale of Valtaerna. It is the most holy site in all of Talingarde and the headquarters of the Order of St. Marcarius, the divine spellcasters of the Mitran clergy.


    Spoiler: Gail
    Show
    the name of the ship that captured you is the Blade of St. Martius. Its Captain is Edward Samobryl. It patrols the eastern coast of the kingdom of Talingard. It is a small boat Single mast and only 30ft long. It is fast, but also only crews 13 people. They took you to Daveryn for your trial.


    Spoiler: Mira
    Show
    Your character is from Matharyn, capital of Talingarde. It is a city on 7 hills. A Castle and palace sit in Kingsill, the largest of the hills. Across the bay is a number of farms and the Adarium, a private residence of the royal family. The poorest of the district in Matharyn is Southburn and this is where the butcher shops are, and thus where Inigo and your family is from. The richest district is the Golden Bow which consists of 44 manor houses owned by the most influential people in Talingarde's political and social scene. You would have lived in Sorsill with the Knight you squired with. (his name is Sir Dallidan the Bold. He currently lives in the Vale of Valtaerna, the most holy site in all of Talingarde and the headquarters of the Order of St. Marcarius, the divine spellcasters of the Mitran clergy. Dallidan was reckless to the point of insanity. He never retreated from anything. His war cry is Death or Victory! (Also, Sir Balin's squire is named Timeon of Balentyne in case it comes up.)

    the villages you raided were around Barrington, a military outpost known for its elite archers. Barrington is located in the Northern Heartlands near the mountains that border the Caer Bryr. The man who arrested you is Father Mattias Harkon of the Mitran Inquisition.

    I believe you were looking for this?
    http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showt...!-(Pathfinder)

    And on hp rolls, I have never liked rolling for hp. Because if one player got lucky rolls and another got bad, you could potentially have a wizard with more hp than the fighter.
    So if your roll is less than half the dice value, take half hp instead.

    That's exactly what I was looking for, and now I feel particularly foolish; I never picked a first-level feat. I've got the bonus feat from my background as a bandit, and eschew materials from level 1 as a sorc, but that's it! I also forgot the skills portion of the bandit background, so I'm going to incorporate that as well, moving forward.

    Also, thumbs-up to the HP rules.

    I could be mistaken, but my understanding was that the groups mysterious benefactor does not live in this mansion. We've sailed to a convenient place to dock the vessel, and will be approaching the meeting point from the other direction, having been forced to sail past it to find a suitable place to disembark.

    Is that about right, Archon?

While some may not notice this detail, Amber's background as a tailor will gift her this insight. Everyone's clothing fits as though measured and fitted for them.
    What about Gail's (admittedly distant) background as a (religious) scholar, with her 10 in Knowledge(Religion)? Not to mention her getting around, seeing many ports before her return to Talingarde.

    And would she have possibly encountered (likely early) plumbing on her travels as a pirate?

    Your 10 in knowledge religion does not give you the ability to tell that your clothing fits perfectly even though you were not fitted for it.

    The wikia for pathfinder's world Golarion does not give info on the status of plumbing. It is something only the wealthiest have.

    I meant the religious rank, not how well it fits. And its a base of 10. so... take 10?

    EDIT: whoops, forgot to add Bardic Knowledge; Base 11, take 10 for 21

    Also want to let you know that somewhere in the first weeks of January my posting rate will become very low, until the end of the month. If this threatens to delay the game at any point, let Amber stick in the background or roleplay her for a bit, you have my permission!

    Timeline,
    You left prison by boat about an hour after sunset, sailed to the manor house and arrived around midnight.

    As far as your hosts know you've only had a small meager prison meal today. And if you did eat during the prison break, then it is still about 6 hours since then. So you may be hungry yet.
