    Dunno if anyone else has anything further, but I'm ready for a DM post if you are.

    I figured Inspectre would interrupt us whenever he finished writing. Feels like its gonna be a big one with music - but who knows!

    I am working on it!
    Might take another day or two, as I think I will cover all of the Harrow reading.
    It'd be fun in a tabletop setting to do the actual choosing of cards and stuff, but in a PBP format I don't really see that working very well (since it would just be rolling dice - meh, I can do that for you guys rather than hold things up waiting for a single roll for each that has no other meaning attached besides "random number generation!").
    I didn't actually intend to kill EVERYONE. It just sort of happened.

    Totally agree, and looking forward to it with breathless anticipation!

    (well, not breathless, because a day or two of that and I'd be like dead and stuff? But, well, y'know)

    A delay is fine by me. I'm sick as a dog right now and can't really contribute anyways. Slept pretty much all today, and now I'm just checking my email and messages before going to bed. Hopefully will be back soon.

    Fun fact: The Guinness World Record for longest time holding one's breath was set by Aleix Segura Vendrell at 24 minutes and 3.45 seconds. This was after breathing pure oxygen for 30 minutes. Otherwise, the unassisted record is held by Branko Petrović at 11 minutes and 54 seconds.

    I got nothing to add. I just thought this was interesting.

    No worries perhaps starting slightly smaller would let us pick up some slack? (Maybe not, given this particular post.). Anything we can do to help, let us know!

    Indeed it was.

    I'll make an IC post in reply but perhaps we want to hash out the ass-kickin' plans in here more than that.

    Hashing out the deets:

    I'm assuming we're going to briefly scout the place before going in to see if anything has changed at a glance. If we know there aren't any archers keeping watch on the front, we may be able to use Dalen's skills with enchantment to get past anyone at the door. From there, we may even be able to get the drop on any enemies inside.

    I wonder if any of them would know us, and if we could pass ourselves off as goons for a moment. That's assuming we can charm the door guy.

    Well, that's an interestingly timed post PiccadillyPi - because I just made an update about what the Old Fishery looks like now.

    Are the crates large enough to hold, say, a small humanoid?

    Hah, I like the way you think PiccadillyPi!
    Yes, they are large enough that they could conceivably hold a small child or gnome if they curled up inside.
    Would not be very comfortable though!

    I assume these thugs don't happen to be wearing identical clothing to identify themselves as a member of a group, do they? Because if they were, that'd be cool.

    Current plan A is to walk in with an Enthrall, see how many I can hold the attention of, and in case of a minor miracle you can figure out a way to separate the ones we want to murder in cold blood from the ones we don't. (Reminder that one of the "kids" isn't really one, just to be a pain in the ass.) I don't see stealth working well, at least not as much as bluffery.

    Not so much as uniforms par se, but sure, Silas and Miz recognize these punks - they're a new two-bit "gang" from the Docks known as Brendan's Blackguards.
    They're basically leg-breakers for hire, but if you have money, and you need some thugs on the cheap, you just might be able to hire . . . Brendan's Blackguards (trumpet blare).
    So Lamm apparently called 1-800-Cheap-Thugs for the night to do some cargo moving for him.
    Unless anyone interjects in the next couple hours, I will probably move forward with Plan "Aliani Talks the Bad Guys to Distraction, if not Death".
    It's either going to be super(ish?) effective again, or hilarity is about to ensue, depending on how the Will Saves go.
    I'm not sure if Bloo will be affected - Enthrall says "creatures" but the spell description sort-of implies that they have to understand what you're saying to actually be enthralled by it.
    Doesn't look like there's a lot of forum chatter as to whether Enthrall works on animals or not either.

    Cool. (I'll assume I don't know that; if one of you all want to mention that IC, that'd be spiffy. That does give me an idea, at least, of dressing like them and walking up all casual-like; surely they won't all know everybody. Right?)

    Edit to add: As for Enthrall working, yeah, that will be a no-go, unless Bloo speaks Common (it's a language dependent spell). Hopefully his currently docile demeanor doesn't change if nobody does anything overtly attacking (which, I stress OOCly, will break the spell and make Aliani a sad boy). The good news is that attacking Bloo shouldn't cause problems, since he will not be a target of the spell and not a "member of the audience", AFAIK.

    Language-Dependent: A language-dependent spell uses intelligible language as a medium for communication. If the target cannot understand or hear what the caster of a language-dependent spell says, the spell has no effect, even if the target fails its saving throw.


    I do plan to cast at least one protective spell, if not more than that, before wandering up.

    Also, if you decide you're ready to move it, let me know and I'll throw a post up (I'll get one ready on that assumption). I don't know if we want to give the others a bit more time to chime in on this potentially disastrous plan, though. :)

    Good to know about Enthrall - hadn't thought of checking the spell descriptors to see the 'language dependent" keyword.
    That would do it!

    OK, welp, there we go everyone, I've marched us to our doom!!!!!!!

    Dalen and Miz should be making Spellcraft checks I think; if you want to take 10 on them you'll identify the spells easily enough. If you prefer to roll these things... do that.
