    Alright - will the greenapple house, the tents, and the warehouse be enough to house the refugees, if we can get them all cleared and set up? If not, how many are left? About how many refugees total are there?

    I think you'd be looking at somewhere on the order of 300-400 newly homeless people. Assuming your number of tents was based off the size of the company when you left the front, not the size it is now, that'd be enough to sleep about 70 people. The Greenapple house probably another 20 or so if you really packed them in (got to get rid of those angry dogs though). Looking back through the thread, Dragos' properties were listed as "two warehouses, a boathouse and a pier". I reckon with very tight packing you could probably sleep about 80 people per warehouse, and then if you hauled the boats out you might get another 40 or so in the boathouse (though that'll be damp and unpleasant even by comparison to the warehouses).

    Totting all that up, that comes to 290... so depending exactly how many people are looking for shelter (and haven't e.g. been taken in by friends and family) you could have everyone covered, or you might still have a few tens of people with nowhere to go. Ludo doesn't have a census to go off so IC it'd be a case of suck it and see.

    Preparing all these spaces and directing people to them would of course be a job that required a lot of hands - you'll be needing a sizeable chunk of the militia to get this done in one day.

    Alright: looks as if we can't house everyone but can maybe get the numbers down low enough for the temple/hospital to take the rest? I think the only thing that isn't worthwhile is the boathouse. Ludo will probably give instructions to the militia to get all of this sorted out - everyone in the city that Sieghard isn't using to search will be on this - and Ludo can then rest and start healing.

    Right at the moment i'm honestly too tired to write this up as an IC post, sorry. I can do that tomorrow, but please don't feel the need to wait for me if you want to advance the day tonight. Feel free to make any rolls required, as well.

    No problem - as long as you don't mind not covering it in too much detail, I can just work it in when the others are ready to move on from this scene at the temple.

    Early afternoon. The anointing will be at dusk.

    That seems a bit high. Isn't that, like, 10% of the population of the city?

    Assuming a conservative population density in the Old Town of about 5 people per house, it's about 80 houses, which some back-of-the-envelope maths says is about 1-2 acres of surface area, or 1.2 average modern-day UK streets. You seem to be asking a lot of questions about the fire, is there a problem?

    Unrelated question, who's waiting for what IC?

    LeSwordfish, if Ludo has time, please remember Elsa's request to bring Stoutheart near the remains of the house where we fought the Terrifying Trio. Elsa wants to know if there is still an evil aura around the place (suggesting that ritual magic is at work) or if it's fading (suggesting the aura was just from proximity with the vampire). She would go herself but is currently in no state to go out... not to mention the possibility of getting lynched by an angry mob.

    Pretty sure it was just a joke. The fire is a problem IC, but IC we're supposed to have problems or else there'd be no story.

    Same, I think we can go as far as Adelbert's anointing. Sieghard will use the time between now and then to get cleaned up and if time allows, take a short nap.

    Re: fire: It's an IC problem but it can become an OOC one if it forces Elsa's exile, and therefore her effective retirement as a PC. But I suppose that's my own fault.


    Re: moving on: There's literally nothing constructive Elsa can do, so I support moving on. I'm assuming she's also in no state to attend the anointing.

    It's probably too late, but if we had thought of it earlier, we could have attempted to cultivate ambiguity about whether Elsa survived her wounds. Given Klammenberg's ability to sneak anywhere by making himself inconspicuous, he might target her while he knows her to be weakened and unprotected. It might best to move her to the castle as soon as she is able to make the trip (we'll just summon a Shallyan for her daily Heal test). This will also put her out of the reach of the rabble; if even one person is willing to violate the sanctity of the Shallyan hospital for revenge, Elsa will be at their mercy.

    No, Reinholt's the figurehead we install after our coup so we can run the Reaches and hunt vampires from behind the throne.

    I'm back! I mean, in all honesty I was back from Denmark on Tuesday night, but you know how it is settling back in after a holiday. Urgrim's plan for Geheimnistag is/was to sleep, but I think, like Sieghard, he'll have tried to wake up in time to see Adelbert off for the anointing.

    I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he was an ex-somebody. Given the political churn of the Reaches it seems plausible some random tavern drunk or beggar really was a Lord Chamberlain or Captain of the Graf's Guard at some point.

    We do have someone (incapacitated at the moment, but still) who can determine if it's cursed and remove any curse that's present.

    OOC, I'm not convinced it is cursed - all of the bad juju may have just come from the Red Pyramid, rather than the gold. But I think it's worth being safe, and indeed either Elsa or Adelbert might be able to assess it more accurately.

    Nah, I reckon it is cursed. After all, the person who took it from the red pyramid got stabbed repeatedly and then their house burned down.
