    Seems fair that you can have the MW base weapon for free (ie a MW composite longbow) and if you want to add any special attributes (ie +3 Str or something else eg silver/ mithral etc) then you can pay the excess.

    So in this case, yes the weapon is available for an extra 'cost' of 300hs (ie 300gp)

    Edit: but do check with me on any other special attributes desired as some may not be readily available

    I've updated my character sheet. Removed the common language (as my mother was a scribe, keeping the literacy was more logical from the background).
    I've simply made my battle axe Masterwork, and with the money I've changed one of my daggers into a silver dagger.
    I've added a link to a picture I have, but I don't seem to be able to get it to show on the sheet.

    I have two questions:
    -in the recruitment thread there is in 'the big 16' a link to the 'bacrground skills' rule, but in the OOC there is not. Is this optional rule in effect or not?
    -how easy is it to get potions and things like that?

    Background skills are in effect

    Non-fantastical potions are available (eg CLW, Shield of Faith) from the old cunning woman Odi or similar. If you want anything that feels overtly magical then please ask first.

    Added background skills and 1 potion of CLW.

    Hi all, apologies for my lack of posting lately. Life has been super busy - my colleague at work left for another company recently and there are no current plans to replace him, so I'm doing the job of two people. On top of that, my wife got sick, so I've had double parent duty at home, and very little spare time.
    Sorry for not letting you know sooner - my wife is feeling a bit better, so hopefully I will be able to return to posting again soon.

    That does sound like a lot to have on your plate all at once. I hope your wife recovers swiftly and things settle down at work for you. Everything always goes to pot in my household when my wife gets sick.

    Thanks for letting us know. That's no problem - we'll just cruise along and you can jump back in when you're ready. Take your time!

    Also, if anyone wants to take a Masterwork Tool (or similar eg backpack, instrument etc) or MW armour/ shield (no full plate or tower shields) instead of a MW Weapon you may.

    I'll stay with my axe. It sort of makes sense in the setting that I would inherit my father's best weapon when I take service with the Jarl.

    I'll avail myself of a MW Hide Shirt instead of a weapon. Updated my sheet to reflect such. Will post in a moment.

    Sorry all. I unsubscribed from the IC thread. Will catch up later today. And no doubt select a MW spear as that's her style.

    Did we level up Ghostfoot?

    Not quite yet. Nearly.

    I'll update IC today or tomorrow with next events.

    Edit:

    Mission - hunt down the outlaws

    Question - forest or hills?

    Sorry for the double post, but I posted the previous one too quickly and apparently when you do that, the rolls dissapear.

    Actually I've rolled those checks for you, I just omitted to pop them in the IC post. Have added now.

    Nothing material changes - between the group you hit all DCs anyway.

    Here's the link of what's been briefly disclosed earlier.

    The group met Hallbjorn and a bunch of tired huscarls returning from a fruitless hunt for Styr the Ugly.

    Thanks - I remember reading that the first time, but I think I grouped them all together in my mind and presumed them all dealt with.

    Onward, I suppose!

    I like the armor idea, taking a masterwork Chain Shirt if that's all good.

    I'd love to work on upgrading my bow over time as well if possible - upgrading it to composite and masterwork maybe?

    DDW thinks that there could be real benefit to searching the forest, but will accept the judgement of the group.

    Do we have a cultural / positional leader to the group?

    I would say the Skald, the Oracle and the Huscarl are the most likely candidates. They all three have a social position that make them candidates to be the leader of a group like this.

    Yeah culturally it previously would have been Gunnar or Skorri as the most martial human, now Bjorn

    I've modified my last post to ask for preferences in hills or forest. I assume from the responses here it's going to be hills, but my hcaracter doesn't know that.

    Hi all,

    I know that I haven't been posting much in the past few weeks, and I apologise for that, but I just thought I'd let you know that on top of me doing the job of two people, my wife having an epileptic seizure, and my son having his tonsils out; yesterday my daughter broke her leg and will be in a cast and wheelchair for at least 6 weeks (including her upcoming 6th birthday party this month).
    Verily, when it rains, it pours; so I'm going to be on a bit of a hiatus from this game for at least a couple of months. Hopefully things will eventually improve and I'll be able to rejoin, but until then I'll wish everyone good gaming.

    Best regards, Dexam.

    Hey Dex

    Sure does sound like it's all happening at once. Sorry to hear about all of that. I can certainly empathize with your daughter's situation - my five year old did the same the day before school finished up for last summer holidays. Very frustrating for her (although she was a legend among her friends).

    I hope your family have a speedy recovery. Take your time. You're very welcome to rejoin if/ when things settle down, no rush.

    All best
    GF
