    I won't lie, it's been really nice to game with all of you. This is my longest-running campaign by a significant margin.

    Yes even though we have our ups and downs this game is great. I'm so happy that I'm enjoying playing this game so far.

    Okay...we either have a DM stuff-up or Pratchett has had his memory decidedly messed with.

    I'm going with the second option both because the first option is obviously unthinkable and because we've suspected some sort of mind-mangling-magic at work before. Thaddeus has probably been effected, which might explain why his plan is so messed up.

    Prepare to face the unthinkable, then.

    I guess that's one flaw of playing a game that spans the space of a year - if I don't carefully reread my notes, I make mistakes. Thanks for catching that.

    I've edited my previous post.

    Yeah, I feel pretty bad about that one. It was a major mistake.

    Should've gone with it. "Yes! Pratchett's memory is all borked! And Thaddeus has been hiding something by going along with it!"

    And we'd say; "Oh my. This was totally foreshadowed! How could we have missed it?"

    And you'd say; "YES! I've been planning this twist all year! Wink. Wink."

    I really considered, I even wrote a whole post. But a lack of internal consistency bothers me, and it felt dishonest.

    Okay. There's another issue. We ask Cogsworth flat-out if there was anyone else in the house, and he said no. We could hear someone upstairs, but because of what he said we assumed it was something unexpected and dangerous. Hence we left in a hurry. Hence we didn't get Miss Fields. Hence the Pelorites seem to have got her instead. Hence eight dead men, lots of witnesses to the frustercluck, and general complications.

    This is very serious for Cogsworth. He's given false information to us and that's led directly to missed opportunities and big, BIG problems.

    How are we supposed to do this?

    Honestly? I don't know. I think Coggy answered the question without thinking. Out of character, he knew Thaddeus had a housekeeper, so I would've asked me.

    But he didn't do that. So take whatever action you think is best, even if I does cause some inter-party strife.

    On an unrelated note: we really, really could use some new members. Avita's feeling terribly lonely.

    Indeed; I've been procrastinating, but I'll make the recruitment thread now.

    It's look like that Coggy is going to fight Avita and Sarim. Hey that some things that he deceived them on purpose. After all he's evil.

    Yes he did. Well in case if you haven't checked out Coggy character for the first time. He worshipped Nerull, Deity of Murder and Death.

    I know damn well who Nerull is. And that he's not a god you want to call on before witnesses.

    Good. I guess we're on the same page and knows where he stands for when it comes to his own beliefs.

    Open Lock is a trained-only skill, and you don't have any ranks in it, so you can't even try to use it.

    D'oh!

    Wait a minute. According to SRD to Open Lock when it comes to Untrained it said you cannot pick locks untrained, but you might successfully force them open. But it's still failed anyway.

    And you're in manacles.

    The Nerull thing is a problem. Avita just wanted you restrained so you could explain yourself and so she could say something along the lines of "If you don't know something, SAY that you don't know. Don't make up stories." This was a problem with Eric as well. A very serious problem.

    However, you called upon Nerull before witnesses. Nerull's not like Wee Jas.

    Wee Jas is a Death goddess who is all about reverence for the dead, recording their wisdom, and organising funerals. She is a touch creepy but socially acceptable.

    Nerull is a Death god who just wants to kill EVERYTHING and reign over a lifeless universe. He's a god for no-one but wannabe serial killers.

    Given we already have an image problem, how are we supposed to associate with you after that?

    At this point, Bartman, I would honestly suggest just rolling up a new character. You can stick with Coggy if you really want, but you're basically going to spend the rest of the campaign sitting in a cell.

    Also, I should probably mention that the Lieutenant's offer of better equipment was dependent on you taking his mission.

    Right. His mission.

    ""Investigate these books. Find out what that artifact does - and catch the Temple of Pelor in their skullduggery"

    Is that not what we're doing? It's a pretty BROAD brief all things considered.

    True. But you and the Lieutenant didn't exactly part on good terms - that's not to say you can't try to bluff your way into some new gear, though.

    It really shouldn't matter what terms we parted under. Avita accepted the "mission". I don't think it ever occurred to her to refuse it. She's just aware that it's not so much a "mission" as a desperate shout of "Do Something!" and she's generally sick of everyone being Chaotic Useless.

    At the very least she can get Dirk some studded leathers, a sword and shield out of her own pocket. She was planning on doing this for Brin.

    Avita is one of those "Get Mithral or don't bother" people.

    She also has a teeny-tiny little crush on the Lieutenant. Although after that tanty she's looking at him as a bit of fixer-upper.
