    I take it there's no sign of horses then? Do I know enough to know how how many people might be involved or do I need a roll?

    Yeah, I'm in the same boat. Priest school does not include learning how to swim!

    Alas, wizard training is also lacking in it's swimming training. Or any kind of athletic pursuits, really.

    No horse poop or hoofprints, that's obvious. Precise numbers are hard to say, but between 4-10. Maybe more info can present itself tomorrow once it's light. There's no roll needed for swimming under normal conditions, you either know how to do it, or not. So if you want to splash around the pool, you can. As I said though, the only thing you really find is a dropped basket with some of the stuff she was supposed to be picking.

    @DrK
    It's a minor thing, but mate, your recent posts are all over the place regarding who's who and who does what!

    Conrad nods to Elodie and Gabriele. Okay then. I'm sure the Hammer will keep us safe if we venture out after Morselib sets." He pulls out his hammer and grabs the shaft. "Lets see what we can find then." Looking about he readies for a further trek into the wilderness.
    Elodie is the girl who's disappeared, not a member of the party.

    THe priest shivers as the mage's witch craft summons a spectral light. "Heresy...." he mutters under his breath. Eyeing up the Elven mage carefully. "'We are not in the Empire now eh" he thinks to himself before he strides along them, making sure to keep a good few paces away from Severin's witch light.
    Severin is a halfling. He doesn't do magic. Torendil is the elf mage with the magic light.

    Well it can't be Gabriele until we've either run down the "kidnappers" or we decide we're not going to catch them today. Without her I don't think there's anyone to follow the trail.

    Severin can go back, but he's a little concerned his travelling companions are going to get themselves hurt without him to stop them from doing anything foolish - because every Halfling knows that the big folk are always getting in trouble when there's no one around to apply good Halfling common sense.

    True, but he has a pony in town so he can catch back up more quickly.

    A compelling argument. Am I going to need to roll lots of successful tests to find my way there and back again? If not, I suppose Severin is actually the best man for the job.

    You guys have left a clear trail to go the long way back... if you want to try a shortcut, a roll flr navigation or something like that might be needed.

    I'll give Navigation a whirl, then. If I fail, will I be lost or just delayed? I.e. can I still work my way back the way we originally came?

    Navigation test (1d100)[86] vs. 49 (Int 39 +10 Orientation)

    Edit: Well that's not a result I want to rely on. If failing means getting properly lost, assume Severin backtracked the original way. If he only expects to be delayed a bit, I suppose I'll have to stick with the roll.

    Sorry I've been quiet for a bit--had a work trip that took up quite a bit of my time, but I'm back and catching up now.

    Would this collection of tents happen to be the same as the dot in N4 on the map?

    More like the edge of the red volcano square in M6. Also, Alyssa and Gabriele haven't been spotted yet, so unless you want to speak out you can remain hidden and decide how to make your appearance if at all.

    Cool, so we've caught up with them then? I'm off to bed now, so I can't post tonight, but I'll get something up tomorrow evening.

    I assume the rest of the advance group is hanging back and observing?

    Let's assume that, unless Gabriele says otherwise, she's fallen back and reported what she's seen so you can make a decision about how to proceed.

    Yeah, I pass everything on. I probably should consult with someone with lores.

    As the guy mentioned traders there might be a precedent for being there as outsiders.

    Severin brought some extra supplies from the village, so if Gabriele's hungry, our party should have enough to eat for now.

    I missed that. The hunting wasn't great earlier. Still ok with stealing from these people though.

    I'd say large tent first unless we have a good reason to try one of the other ones.

    With those rolls I can't really help.

    I'm going to hold off responding in the IC thread to give someone else the option to respond to the new arrival. I feel it's sort of been the "Severin Cinderhill Show" lately when it comes to deciding where to go and how to do it, which means it's also my fault we're in our current predicament. So if anyone else wants to take charge of the situation, now's the time to do it.

    That's OK! If this ends up being the story about how Severin Cinderhill unites the scattered halfling tribes and forges an kingdom out of iron and blood, that's cool too.

    And here I was thinking that Severin would become the Lone Ranger of the Border Princes, but now you're telling me greatness has been thrust upon him instead?

    The man halfling with no name, wandering the wastes, righting wrongs then. I hope the enslaved halflings of Northdale find the deliverer they've been waiting for soon.
