    You know the drill, though the new players may not know that I've a bad habit of disappearing for days on end. Work is as usual while other interests rise to the fore and distract me from here every so often. I'll be catching up and, if I feel it applicable, writing in the IC thread soon

    I was hoping I wouldn't have to use the word "orgasm" but I really couldn't think of another way to describe what I was going for. Oh well. \_(ツ)_/

    So, any chance of Sarrazin getting off his swift action command ability before the beastie runs out of range (=35 feet)?

    Thanks, but I'll pass. Looks like the lady has her heart set on another venue, and I don't want to be antagonizing a dread necromancer.

    Fair enough.

    Straight to the Sage's Guild, then?

    You watch it mate. Sometimes she quotes poetry. Modernist poetry.

    Although, it is getting annoying how fast some things seem to be able to run away from us.

    (I posted without seeing your OOC post and Yossarian's reply. If you'd done it she'd just have said something like; "on the other hand if it's going to wait around for us...Plan A is back on the table!"

    On the subject of the Sage's Guild, its a fairly odd situation. I'm pretty sure I never actually said that was thing, but somehow we all started talking about and now its a part of the game. I'm not complaining, though. Collaborative storytelling and all that.

    We kept getting hints from Parker and from Thaddeus that "THESE are the people you need to talk to", often in very vague terms. And we didn't do that, because Parker and Thaddeus were both dodgy as hell and because we never had any time. And Emyera was definitely working for some organisation that pointedly excluded us from the debriefing.

    I suppose over a period of time all these little hints solidified into the idea of a "Sages Guild".

    Huh. That's weird - I could have sworn that I posted in the IC thread yesterday. Something along the lines of "Are we here to meet a particular person?", i.e. does the party know a named sage we want to or should consult?

    I assumed you were all fine following Emyera into the bushes. If that is not the case, let me know and I'll edit my IC post.

    Following strange gnomes into the bushes for clandestine meetings? Why wouldn't we be okay with that?

    I dunno, as a player I have a habit of automatically assuming all gnomes are evil inhuman monsters until its explicitly proven otherwise. Let's chalk it up to bad past experiences.

    Also, Yossarian; if our lack of progress is due to that "Not asking the obvious, direct questions" thing, a good reason for that is that we don't trust anyone enough to ask the most obvious, direct questions for fear we'll be tipping someone off.

    No, no. I'm not at all bothered by how you're handling the investigation. In fact, it's probably my favourite part of the game.

    I think she would have snapped before this, she just didnt have a target she could get away with snapping on

    She hasn't pulled out the Intimidate check yet, so this is just her being firm.

    Well, this conversation (or is it an interrogation) seems to be well in hand. In case anyone's wondering, Sarrazin has nothing to add right now. He's hanging back, smirking.

    Ya, Fion is just hanging back, observing, and appreciating.

    Thank the powers we don't have to rely on Avita's +5 Diplomacy mod any more. It never went well. She always just came across as even creepier than usual.

    On another note, I keep forgetting that Dirk is following you guys around like a glorified pack horse. I suppose I should be grateful no one has a familiar... yet.


    EDIT: Also, a question: how do you want to handle the encounter with Professor Hill? I'll be upfront, he will gladly answer any of your questions. So while I'm happy to roleplay the whole thing out, you could also give me a complete list of what you want to ask, and I'll type out the answers.

    Just so we can avoid devoting too much time to a relatively dull encounter.

    Oh, I think we're going to tell him everything, show him everything. Except we're not going to identify the Pelorites. When we get to that part of the story Avita's just going to say "a certain organisation" or "certain armed gentlemen in the garb of a certain organisation to which I have previously alluded." And if he asks WHICH organisation she's going to stick to "I may not answer that."

    And yeah, I think we can abstract this. We don't want three pages of "Avita recaps what's already happened and asks questions she's already asked".
