    Just 5. That's not too many is it? Am coming up with descriptions and fun stuff for them, but they're pretty much just Extras.

    They can take the crew spaces. A large yacht has 3 rooms for 2 passengers each and then accomodations for the crew. I assume the passenger quarters are nicer than the crew spaces (it almost Always is, at least on those ships I've been on), so at least I have a passenger cabin. Who's sharing it with me (and just how much 'sharing' is taking place) I leave unsaid for now.

    Fair does. I thought we were getting a large cargo vessel rather than a yacht?

    A large yacht can take about 40 tonnes of cargo, so if you specialise in small but valuable stuff, you can still take a lot of things. And it doesn't require as much crew as a larger vessel (a cargo ship needs 22 men crew, which cost resources and you have to keep wondering where they are at all times, for instance in a fight onboard, making it more difficult for the GM).
    A large yacht is about 24 yards long and 6 yards wide. I've been on ships of around that size IRL and yes, you can pack some cargo on those (they pack 12-16 passengers, 10-14 crew, provisions for the same for 2 weeks and diving equipment for 20+ people on there).

    Wits+Socialise. Not my best combo. Bit confused at the pairing, since normally it's Charisma to try and convince someone to do something. Are you wanting it for my read of the guy? Anyway here it is

    EDIT:Damn dice roller. Sorry in advance for doublepost.

    ....not really sure what you want us to do here. I guess we could just pack up and try and head off to the island ahead of the expedition, to see if there's anything there we could salvage or find.

    That'd definitely be my vote. What about the rest of you guys?

    I woldn't mind going there and have a look, but first we have to resupply the ship as, depending on what we find, resupply on the island might be difficult. To bad we don't have a sorcerer with that food spell. And I want to know why the satrap has problems outfitting an expedition, as that might point to issues we have to take into account.

    Yeah. I steered away from sorcery because I was expecting people to make a Twilight or a No Moon, but instead we got another Full Moon and others didn't make a sheet within the timeframe @Lentrax asked for them.

    Might be interesting to go for it once I get some XP, since I've kinda got an Occult subtheme.

    I do have a way of getting food, provided there are Sharks within a few miles and we have some good harpoons, since I have the Thaumaturgical Procedure to summon them towards us. Using one of my hearthstones I can also summon a Brine Cur, and dispatch that to go hunting in the depths for food too, and will work to learn more cool tricks like that

    That or we rely on the prowess of our Lunars to hunt things over and under the waves for us to nom


    @Lentrax noted. Will do an IC post when I get home from work

    I've just posted myself to the Tya guildhouse. I'm not sure if Pepper and Ivory are coming with her, but you're welcome to.

    I also assumed that the trading was completed and the rest of the particularities can be done off-screen. If not, please let me know and I'll edit.

    @Ivory: your choice if you want to join upstairs or stay downstairs with the other Tya (or go to the inn next door). As you are also Tya, I assume you can come up with me if you want.

    @farothel: Hanging with you for now, will probbably go and try to socialise after meeting the elder.

    This might go poorly

    Sorry edited because I wasn't sure the right way to format dice rolls should be fixed now

    no worries: waiting for Lentrax as the Tya elder, although I think we can best get this conversation over with quickly and move on.

    Sorry, what your responding to was my character's internal thoughts. Also, I thought Paw and Pale Ocean were several tables away? Kind of awkward to have a conversation like that.

    I think the fact you did it in your colour and put quotation marks around it made it seem like you were speaking out loud.

    Might be nice to come back so we are all on one table. I'll do a post about coming back and sitting down with you, even as my guys at another table have far too much fun.

    No problem, it's my fault too. I'm used to italics indicating thoughts, and didn't realize that that wouldn't be automatic. I'll change my post to fix the issue.

    Lentrax, let me know if you don't want me having control over Cloud like I've done in IC, and I'll alter my post accordingly. She hasn't done anything, despite being with my character most of the game so far, so I'd thought I'd bring her in to the conversation.

    Cool, hopefully you can make some good connections who might want to come with us to the island. We'll have to wait for @Lentrax to give the result of your Roll

    I think for most of us this is not a problem as we're sitting together in an inn having a conversation. That we can do without the GM. Only one is in the chapter house of the Tya and will probably need some input. We will need input as soon as we leave for the island.
