    And a natural 1 on the attack roll.
    Pretty good stealth check, though.

    I hope this isn't an indicator of the battle to come.

    Is there any way for DDW to move at an angle to remove the cover penalty? If so, then he does that.


    Edit: ... second shot, not so impressive.

    Edit the Second: Holy crap, 9 damage didn't take down an arcane caster? That's ROUGH. I really hope she's on death's door.

    Well, that was a much better roll than my first one
    Still not a hope of hitting, what with cover, protective spells, etc.

    @PeacefulOak: don't forget that standing from prone is a move action, so I doubt you'll get to move to a better position and shoot as well.

    Likewise concerned that 9 damage didn't drop her... we're in pretty bad shape with 2 of our party already heavily wounded, both of them heavy-hitters.

    Still, assuming she's the Witch class (with d6 hit dice) and +1 Con bonus... at 2nd-3rd level, they'd average 11-16 HP i.e. entirely reasonable.

    oh dear (for me) it looks like that might be the end of my wicked witch, Sibbe.

    And I didn't even get to use burning gaze spell. I was looking forward to that!

    Hey team

    Well done on getting (almost) the the end of Part 1: Spring Rites. Up soon is Part 2: Wyrd of the Winter King.

    BelGareth/ Gunnar won't be rejoining us for the time being. Before I open a re-recruitment, if you know of anyone who may wish to join either ask them to send me a PM or send me their details.

    Cheers

    Hey Ghostfoot, cheers.
    I'm not aware of anyone at the moment I'm afraid. Redzimmer or Starbin are often up for something so you could always ask the crowd in my Age of Worms game?

    Just waiting for Oak to enjoy his moment of glory then I'll move us on.

    Might try to get a re-recruitment up tonight since no one has taken the bait yet.

    All good. Level two is very close. A little bit of tidying up first.

    Re-recruitment is up, here. Feel free to weigh in.

    My use of the term "Wild one" is a call-back to my previous interaction with Runa, trying to ground her with familiarity.

    Thinking of level 2... I think I'll be taking "Cold" as my first favored terrain. Seems... apt. ;)

    Yup, that will be very optimal. Cold, water, forest, hills....that's about all I see for hundreds of miles. Looking through the nice old-school Wandering Monsters tables in the Northlands Campaign Guide it breaks them into Summer and Winter with the caveat that the summer tables should only be used at the height of summer. Go figure.

    Re-recruitment is closed. PM me if you have any thoughts/ comments/ preferences. They all look pretty good to me, we're spoiled for choice.

    I thought I could run Signy as more of a support/ non-combat NPC if you want, so we can probably take 1-3 of the submissions depending on appetite.

    We'll aim to make a decision by end of weekend.

    Hi Folks,

    Glad to be on board! I've skimmed through the IC thread so am reasonably familiar with the story so far and will wait on how you want to get the new characters incorporated into the group.

    Look forward to playing with you all.

    Hey everyone! Really stoked to be playing with you all as The White That Walks. Will catch up on the IC in the meantime and familiarize myself with everything.

    Here! And looks like this is probably available. Heltinne is ready to prove herself worthy of of her ancestors...

    Hi new recruits, welcome to the game :-)

    Turns out I'm pretty busy IRL for the next ~48 hours so plenty of time to get familiar with things.

    You are all welcome to join the game as part of Jarl Henrikson's recently arrived evac-team if you wish. If that doesn't suit for some reason then you can join shortly thereafter. We'll be wrapping up this section and on to the next.

    Also, I'll be giving you a bit more wealth shortly too, so if starting equipment has been a problem there's assistance coming soon.

    May the Norns favour you as you face your wyrd!

    I’d be fine with Heltinne being part of the war party, but it depends on if you think she’d be called upon for this ... based on a tenuous relationship at best.

    Maybe since they were headed into the Barrow Lands the Jarl thought it best to grab a spirit-touched to accompany the group hoping for some protection against the accursed dead. So not so much a warrior as a "lucky charm".

    Hail and welcome new recruits!

    I really need to make an IC post in response the Jarl's arrival and reward; but real life has been super busy lately. Hopefully I'll have something up in the next 48 hours.

    Makes sense to me ... I’ll try to post a ‘Newbie’s Perspective’ post tonight or tomorrow.

    Having caught up on the IC, I don't think it makes sense that White That Walks would be part of the Jarl's evac team. A Nuk with a polar bear companion would definitely be out of place and noticed. I think it makes more sense that my PC would be waiting somewhere for Dark Dreams Wanderer like back at the feasthall in Silvermeade or along the route. Maybe even meets the party at the Tor, but separate from the Jarl's party?

    DM, party, what do you think?

    It feels like we're at the denouement of the story, so that's one thing to consider. In terms of whether or not the Jarl would have brought you... if you're a skilled tracker, then he most certainly would have with your skills with the wild and your familiarity with the Wanderer. For me, I'd be A-OK with you joining the force.
