    I was planning on learning it from the Morrites at the temple, but presumably that's not going to be an option soon.

    Again, we have no indication that this is the case. We made Nahorek retreat, we never killed him or destroyed his body. For all we know, his canine form is no more spiritual than Kelda's.

    I am going to choose to be optimistic until proven otherwise.

    (Though I have been playing a lot of Star Wars the Old Republic recently, so an evil mentor wouldn't be a terrible shock...)

    Elsa saw him in canine form right after the Battle of Arrow Heap, feeding off all the death that permeated the battlefield. No one else seemed able to see him.



    This is a truly great scene that's unfolding right now! I'm on the edge of my seat and my character isn't even there.

    Anyway. I think Adelbert should do as Raqiyah says. Imagine dying one day after being anointed!

    He's going to try to grab Adelbert by the throat, but there's no way he can act on Surprise when he's standing right in front of you, so let's roll some Initiative:

    It is pretty difficult to imagine things not going bad for him in any case.

    And really he's beyond furious and upset and incredibly bitter. This vampire has casually slaughtered the priesthood and it seems everything we tried to do at great cost when we fought him has had no impact whatsoever. moments after Adelbert finally achieved something the vampire just merrily strolled in and started effortlessly destroying Adelbert's literal and spiritual home. If Adelbert is going to die here - and I don't see any scenario where he actually survives - then he can at least go down spitting defiance.

    From a meta standpoint, I really doubt LCP would ever spring a situation on you where you have no way to avoid it and no way to survive it. You've got options.

    Agreed.

    Of course, if you choose to burn all your bridges, it's no longer LCP's responsibility to think up new ways for you to get out alive.

    If you still have a way out, it is narrowing with every word that passes Adelbert's lips.

    The initiates had departed and Elsa had settled back into her bed when she felt the tenuous thread of Aqshy she had shaped into her alarm spell stretch and break. Someone had touched the chest. Someone was in the chamber with the book.
    Touching that thing should've been the very first thing Adelbert did upon entering the room. Touch it to alert Elsa and stall for precious time until she could fetch reinforcements.

    I don't think Elsa ever went into detail with the others IC of how her alarm spell works - I had to check the books myself to make sure of whether it was on touch or on the chest being opened/moved.

    Oh, a few things I should have asked before I posted...

    Do Sieghard and Ludo sleep in the barracks?

    Do the barracks have windows (with or without glass panes), or are they just solid walls with a door? If the latter, getting Morrslieb to awaken Sieghard will be complicated.

    Just a heads up, today is the Arrivals Weekend at school so I will probably not be around much. Ludo will go with the others, taking at very least his crossbow and silver bolts.

    If there's any chance of it helping then, I'll reroll that test.

    Not with a reroll like that it won't.

    RossN, are you asking if there's a 3rd door, or did you miss this one?

    The corridor at the top of the stairs was empty, with no sign of Klammenberg or Besnik. To the left, it led back towards the atrium, while to the right it led to the back door and the belltower.

    How much time would it take for Sieghard to get his mail vs just going?

    I'm not sure of there's any real chance of stopping him from getting the book. The best chance is to hope that whatever defenses the priests have in place stall him long enough for help to arrive and to hope that the injuries from last night combined from whatever damage Raqiyah's spell did leave Nahorek in a position where he can't put up a fight and to hope that we can get the book away from him before he flees... But goddamn that's a lot of "hopes" and "ifs"

    If we're talking on the order of minutes to get there, Ludo will throw on his armour and go with his crossbow, bolts, sword, and dagger. He's not stopping to wake the militia.
