    @razorback - I'll confess, I'm a bit a loss when I look at your character sheet as to what sort of "bonus" gear to give your character. Input would be most welcome...

    I'll wait for CWater before I post again in the IC.

    Also, I've set up Barnibus IF and only IF you fellas want a fourth for your party. I can slap a level of fighter on him, and let you guys play him as a simple beat-stick melee type if you want.

    How much, if anything beyond the name, does Aerlya know about the Aspis Consortium?

    Aerlya knows that "what distinguishes the Aspis Consortium from other trade organizations is the size of their operations (their liquid assets, properties, and other holdings are valued in the tens of millions of gold pieces), and their willingness to do whatever is necessary to accomplish their goals."

    Her perception check spots both a young woman watching through the window of The Wise Piper Inn, as well as a fourth crossbowman leaning around the corner of a building across the street that has a sign depicting a unrolled parchment and ink well.

    Don't know. Maybe his cards give him luck when gambling?

    As far as Barnibus... might be nice to have backup if needed.

    Cal spots the young woman in the window of the inn watching the events play out.

    Cal can start the game with a Deck of Deft Hand that grants him a +1 bonus to Bluff.

    In addition to the check indicated in the IC, Jheren also sees the fourth crossbowman and the woman in the window.

    I'll post again in the IC once Kish has a chance to respond.

    I added Barnibus' character sheet to the front page. Again, this is not a DMPC, he will accompany you only when/if you desire and you can run him in combat as well as level him up any way you see fit.

    Wonder how combat will work in practice as there's three of us, and not everyone are online at the same time. But I guess we'll see!

    Good question CWater. At this point I would consider him a tool that the party has in their toolbox. Some tools never get used, but it's nice to have them around just in case. I have absolutely zero investment in the character because I simply ripped off a pre-generated NPC from the SRD. He has a bunch of hit points and a big hammer, that's it.

    All too often the problem with DMPCs is that they're used to railroad the party into certain situations and they steal the spot-light(are better at what they do than the rest of the party). I hate that, and have had many negative experiences with that myself, so Barnibus can stay, he can go away, he can be used as a meat-shield or a beat stick. If you want him to tag along, but nobody wants to run him in combat he can sit and watch. I really don't care. Think of him as a piece of bonus equipment. In terms of who would play him, I would just say "first come first serve". If his spot is up in the initiative and someone wants to roll for him, go for it. If not, and he gets skipped that's fine by me as well. Heck he could get up and simply walk out of town at any point. LoL!

    Just so you know, this is a fully fleshed out town with NPC's(and their attitudes), factions, etc....

    I'll repeat, though, that if you want to fast-forward just let me know. After all, that's why we're playing, so you can hopefully have some fun, or at least a semi-interesting diversion...

    My apologies to everyone for being away for a bit, took a short family vacation, but I'm back now.

    Obviously my poorly kept secret is out about which module I'm running. I couldn't get any of my modified maps(hosted on Imgur) to stay so I used one from the Mythweaver's site. It's the Dragon's Demand mini adventure path and the town is labelled as Belhaim. It's a small group and I trust ya'll enough to not download the module and read it(I'll be making modifications anyway).

    I know wandering around town is slow going, even more so in PbP, so I'll repeat that if at any time you want to jump forward just say the world.

    CHEERS!

    P.S. razorback has communicated with me via PM and he's still with us, just dealing with some "stuff" at the moment.

    Is Lady Pelhaime familiar to Aerlya, beyond the connection to the town's name? That is, do I know any details of the town's founding?

    Aerlya recalls that there are legends about a famous dragon slayer known as Lady Pelhaime.....more specific knowledge would require actual skill ranks.
