[Master] hello

[JohnA] hello

[JohnA] Miranda just got invited to Harvard for a three day confrence

[Master] Awesome

[Master] What is the conference on?

[JohnA] Congress of Future Medical Leaders

[Master] excellent

[Master] You see this map of the overall area?

[JohnA] yes

[JohnA] that is a ways away isn't it

[Master] 10 miles

[Master] from Skull Church to Travelers Way

[Master] Dragon Fen is just about 7 miles across

[Master] so you are debating to double Dragon Fen in size

[Master] or more

[Master] There would be plenty of area for Branwyn to cede out to vassals

[JohnA] I did the numbers, for a fighter to be able to get max followers, "Skul Church" alone needs almost double

[JohnA] or was it a priest

[JohnA] the number of followers and the farmers to feed is big

[JohnA] when is why we need to work on the underground rules

[JohnA] which is why

[Master] I think that if you can decide who will take over Skull Church

[Master] that is the first part

[Master] is that Hoffman and Snee?

[JohnA] step one is to take it back, actually

[Master] well how you take it back depends on how you are going to use it afterwards

[Master] you can go in and demolish it

[Master] break it

[Master] clean it out and nuke it from orbit

[Master] then walk away

[JohnA] devil's in the details

[Master] OR the option of clear it out and then assign someone to it

[Master] to treat it with respect

[Master] and keep control so others do not take it back

[Master] but if John/Hoffman does not want to be in charge of it

[Master] then that moves things in a totally different direction

[Master] I know Lisa has said before a PC should take it not a henchman

[JohnA] I understand and agree

[JohnA] I had plans at one time for a hechman dwarf and gome to help with the caverns

[JohnA] gnome

[Master] which can happen

[Master] if Hoffman is willing to take over stewardship of the place

[Master] then you worry about it later on how to incorporate it into Dragon Fen

[Master] there will be a small circle of pink ou tthere

[Master] and you work on joining them over the rest of this Era

[Master] always going with the idea that people survive taking it back

[JohnA] I am glad you can accept that, it works better for me that way

[Master] The other question for John is what reincarnate chart to roll on

[JohnA] btw Hoffman has max 4 henchman so only one more

[JohnA] you know I am open, I can play anything but yes I like the idea of more acceptable, but I do have a plan B ssssshhhhhhh

[Master] ok

[Master] so that is good we made nice progress

[Master] last question will need more people about clicking off time or walking back

[JohnA] how much to I owe you, doc

[Master] if it goes as it did on the way out

[Master] grins

[Master] if it goes the way on the way out the way back you arrive back in Loosend in plenty of time game calendar wise but it will be sometime mid april

[Master] so we will be dealing with going into training and then back into Third Time is Tradition

[JohnA] any word on Fritz?

[Master] none

[JohnA] feel like it's my fault he's not here

[Master] not at all,

[Master] why would that be?

[Master] the last time he has looked in was Dec 27th

[JohnA] his character is walking Wounded because of me and so he has not come by

[Master] no twice he has told me he would log in and then did not

[Master] end of November and end of December

[Master] plus he said he was opening his new office in January

Lisa has joined the game on Fri Jan 10 18:58:34 EST 2020

Lisa is receiving the map Base Map...

Lisa has received the map Base Map.

[JohnA] i wish him the best

[Master] hello

[JohnA] Hello Lisa

[Lisa] Hello!

[Master] How are you Lisa

[Master] you see the map of the overall area

[Master] and John's thoughts above

[Lisa] Good - just about to drug the cats - brb

[JohnA] nice

[Lisa] they are now eating catnip. Simba gets so excited he snorts his and now is having a sneezing fit

[Master] cuckles

[Master] I think we shoudl make good progress tonight

Carissa has joined the game on Fri Jan 10 19:05:29 EST 2020

Carissa is receiving the map Base Map...

Carissa has received the map Base Map.

[Master] Hello

[Lisa] Hi Carissa!

[JohnA] Hi carissa

[Lisa] So are you going to have to do the witches' part with Ilero online if we make "too much" progress?

[Master] I talked to him and if you visit the witches I will do it here

[Master] you should be able to progress past it tonight

[Lisa] Ilero won't talk?

[Lisa] That is totally not like him

[Master] Well, Lisa does the best impression .........

[Lisa] I can impersonate the accent - not the death fixation

[Master] Lisa and Carissa you read the conversation up above with John

[JohnA] you have not played enough characters yet ;)

[Carissa] Hi all! Didn't realize I hit connect... had to get food. I'm good now.

[Lisa] no will scroll up

[Carissa] All right all caught up. I vote nukes from orbit, by the way.

[JohnA] do you have earthquake yet?

[Carissa] Nowhere near it, unless we do another uplift session.

[Carissa] But she does have some great fire spells...

[Carissa] Fire Seeds. Exploding seeds. Just bombs, but nature-y.

[Carissa] (She doesn't actually have that one yet, either)

[Lisa] It's a huge stone building - how much work would it take to demo it?

[JohnA] i was thinking alomost the opposite, how hard would it be to rebuild

[Carissa] Probably as much to clear it out.... unless we find a good spell.

[JohnA] at one point I wanted a dwarf and to take over a dungeon

[JohnA] teraform it

[JohnA] but Hoffman, Miranda will need a house

[JohnA] and I always want to save momey

[Master] There is a farmhouse there, grins

[Lisa] lol

[Carissa] Meh

[Carissa] Oooh that farmhouse. I thought you were saying don't nuke the gnomes.

[Carissa] But that farmhouse is just a little fixer upper.

[Lisa] will hoffman still love miranda if she is a kobold?

[JohnA] you have to tune in to see

[JohnA] I have the scene in my head, already ready for the final details

[Master] OK so we have potentially Mario and Michael left to join tonight?

[Lisa] thought Mario was taking his sabbatical?

[Master] you can make your choices on wrapping up in Glamis

[Lisa] this will be the fewest people in a long time!

[Master] then heading back to Cawdor to sleep

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] Are we reay to go, to return the shell

[Lisa] no one opens the scrolls until we do a detect traps and remove curses on them

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] well done Mistress Branwyn

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (and take lables off Healing potions)

[Lisa] after Ilero poisoning himself I was thinking that protection from dragons breath probably shoots fire or acid in your face

[Carissa] Agreed

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at Gerard "It came at a great cost. I don't feel happy about this much to be honest"

Acolyte Gerard (JohnA) pauses

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] I understand

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But having seen all that I have seen here I don't think any of your priestesses followers or her daughter are being kept alive here anywhere

[Carissa] (One sec, brb)

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] and I agree

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We will have the shell for her to repay our debt and that is all I am afraid

[Carissa] I am away from the keyboard.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am not sure I want anything from this miserable house but an exit, but if there is something you wish to take, I think you would deserve it.

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] I will be happy to make it back with the shell

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I know Ilero wanted a new magic weapon. Maybe we can look in that practice room and see if there is anything for him. Other than that I do not want anything.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Macduff, what wiil you do next?

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (you will need help to save Miranda, not that he knows that)

[Macduff (Master)] I would like to go home

[Macduff (Master)] It has been a long night

[Macduff (Master)] tomorrow will be soon enough to decide our future

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes it has. Will you announce these happenings in Glamis before we leave?

[Macduff (Master)] I shall

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Then we shall follow. I trust that we can find accomodations in Cawdor?

[Macduff (Master)] I will ensure that

[Macduff (Master)] You have helped save us all

[Macduff (Master)] from the madness of Macbeth

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] He was truly mad

[Macduff (Master)] It will take some time to restore trust

[Macduff (Master)] We will all need to look to our families

Macduff (Master) straightens up

[Macduff (Master)] Let us go home

Acolyte Gerard (JohnA) follows

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes. Let us do that.

Branwyn (Lisa) takes Tiberius' hand

[Master] so if you want to take anything you will have to do a quick trip

[Master] Macduff leads the way back out

[Master] and down to the 1st level

[Master] and the ladders to the floor of the cavern

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (oops, I guess what I said happens after you get down)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (know that Ilero wanted to eye the weapon room - he can't use much so it would be a quick look I think)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (not sure if Shi wants to grab a book from the library)

[Master] (checking for him)

[Master] In the weapon room nothing visibly special unless you make a detect magic check

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I can't do that and Shi is afk)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (can I grab Shi a random elf book from evil elf library?)

[Master] if Branwyn grabs a random book Shi can do the detect and grab from the weapon room as you descend down and out

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (any axes?)

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at the shelves in the library and pulls a thick book down without any idea of its contents

Branwyn (Lisa) hands it to Tiberius "Can you please carry this? I'd like to give it to Shi"

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] Certainly

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] I am very glad we are gettng out of here

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I hope it's interesting at least

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Oh so am I

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] All of our adventures are interesting

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am glad you stayed with me and did not run into that ghost

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] In the past they included more treasure

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] this time it seems it is more human in nautre

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] even if they are elves

[Carissa] I am back at the keyboard.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You are the treasure we have won in this adventure

[Carissa] (Sorry tornado season, yay)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And I wouldn't trade you for all the gold in the world

Lord Tiberius (Master) warm smile and KISSES

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (no tornado I hope!)

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] (Carissa can you do a Detect Magic? and grab a weapon?)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Detect Magic - Priest: For 1 turn, I can detect magic in a 10'x30' path.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Shi'Nynze modified: Notes - CHANGED.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Once or twice? She only has one more she can cast)

[Master] and so Shi grabs the only magic weapon from the room as you pass by

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Well that works)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] I would like to grab some of those spices before we leave unless someone else was eyeing them.

[Master] So Shi grabs a Crossbow of Speed

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (all yours)

[Master] and a handful of spices

[Master] Branwyn grabs a book, which turns otu to contain the spells: clairvoyance, dispel magic, hand of darkness*, invisibility 10' radius, slow, suggestion, wraithform; acid bolt*, detect scrying, solid fog, stoneskin; advanced illusion, Bigby's interposing hand, chaos, wall offorce; death fog.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Shi'Nynze modified: Notes - CHANGED.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (she grabbed a mage spell book?)

[Master] apparently

[Master] and what do you do with Peyton?

[Master] He is effectively walking wounded

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I dunno)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (let macduff have him? I don't really think we can/should take him)

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (Shi has room for a follower, or more of another pet?)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Yay pet!!_

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (his alignment is evil isn't it?)

[Master] he is intelligent so not a pet

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Can he talk? Wonder if he has plans)

[Master] and yes would be evil

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Boo)

[Master] and yes he talks, he is the steward

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] I'm sorry, but your master did not survive this encounter, Peyton.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] But you still live.

[Master] do you want to plan this talk

Lisa is receiving the map Cawdor...

Lisa has received the map Cawdor.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (I dunno, I was winging it unless someone else had comments)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (I don't know our goal with him, to be honest)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I don't think we need to plan)

[Master] just making sure you want to tell a dragon you killed the person who raised him and now you are leaving him alone in the world while you go back home

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (We plan enough as it is sometimes :) )

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (....okay fine retract that)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Or let me think of a nicer way to say that? I dunno)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I had a hard time just killing the servant at the moment, but after seeing his room of kill toys and thinking about it - I don't want him)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (well he only has 1 hp so easy to kill at the moment)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Or we start by asking MacDuff what he think?)

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (give him a dagger or a cure light, then it's a fair fight)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Until the tornado passes by family, my attention isn't fully here for another few minutes)

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (this is his problem)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (yeah I think he should be macduff's problem - he has to mend the fences here)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] MacDuff, what do you wish to do with Peyton? I doubt he'll take news of his master's death well...

[Macduff (Master)] I think that I will visit him tomorrow when I am awake

[Macduff (Master)] and I will speak with Glamis to see how he would be accepted there

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] That is wise. Most decisions are better made after a good long sleep anyways.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Should we leave him here?

[Master] Time of Day: 05:27 AM. Day 13 Ced ___ tre, Man {Early Spring} 13th, 348 SKR.

[Macduff (Master)] Yes

[Branwyn (Lisa)] He needs to sleep too

[Macduff (Master)] Now we should sleep

[Macduff (Master)] sadly we have plenty room for you

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Let me remove this light so they can see down here before we leave.

[Macduff (Master)] when you wake this evening we will speak again over dinner

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Dispel Magic - Priest: I dispel (11-(1d20)+9) [1d20=3] 17 level magic.

Branwyn (Lisa) nods "Thank you"

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) yawns, "Yes. Please."

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Shi'Nynze modified: Notes - CHANGED.

[Master] so everyone sleeps for a good 8 hours or more

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (WAIT)

[Master] Time of Day: 07:34 PM. Day 13 Ced ___ tre, Man {Early Spring} 13th, 348 SKR.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Healing with her remaining spells before that)

[Master] ok

[Master] go for it

[Master] Branwyn cannot take any

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Orison: I can create minor effects.

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (nice)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (9 to Skarp)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (and then....)

[Master] Skarphedin's Current Hit Points: adjusted to 42 (9) - Lightly Wounded

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Cure Moderate Wounds: You're healed (-1d10-1) [1d10=2] -3 points.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Cure Moderate Wounds: You're healed (-1d10-1) [1d10=2] -3 points.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Those six to Ilero)

[Master] [Ilero]]'s Current Hit Points: adjusted to 37 (6) - Lightly Wounded

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (...and that's all she apparently has. Carry on)

[Master] and so sleep

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Shi'Nynze modified: Notes - CHANGED.

[Master] and everyone wakes up

[Master] in time for dinenr and more discussions

[Master] the key is going to be Miranda and how to do you do this

[Master] you are rested now but do NOT have spells back

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Ah shoot I just reset them so I forget what I had left...)

[Master] you need to wait till tomorrow for that

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Well she can still cast Speak to Dead, I do remember that)

Carissa is receiving the map Cawdor...

Lisa has joined the game on Fri Jan 10 19:59:46 EST 2020

Lisa is receiving the map Base Map...

Carissa has received the map Cawdor.

Lisa has received the map Base Map.

[Master] and the reincarnate would wait till tomorrow too but you can do the speak with dead first tonight

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Exactly)

Lisa has left the game on Fri Jan 10 20:01:13 EST 2020

[Master] Donalbain is the Cawdor priest, he is 9th level

[Lisa] (test)

[Master] Priest of Corellon Larethian

[Master] and yes to Lisa

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Huh a priest of Corellon making friends with Drow, go figure)

[Master] He seems to be the highest level priest left

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (did everyone get sleep healing?)

[Master] not yet

[Master] Rhibosi: No adjustments made.

[Master] [Ilero]]'s Current Hit Points: adjusted to 39 (2) - Lightly Wounded

[Master] Skarphedin's Current Hit Points: adjusted to 44 (2) - Lightly Wounded

[Master] [Shurkural]]'s Current Hit Points: adjusted to 51 (2) - Lightly Wounded

[Master] Indigo: No adjustments made.

[Master] Kenna Westfoot's Current Hit Points: adjusted to 36 (2) - Lightly Wounded

[Master] Talwin's Current Hit Points: adjusted to 51 (2) - Lightly Wounded

[Master] Macduff's Current Hit Points: adjusted to 99 (2) - Unharmed

[Master] Mara: No adjustments made.

[Master] Shi'Nynze: No adjustments made.

[Master] Lord Tiberius's Current Hit Points: adjusted to 47 (2) - Lightly Wounded

[Master] Acolyte Gerard: No adjustments made.

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (I thought worked with multiple middle level)

[Master] that is what you are exploring now John

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Sorry 15 more minutes then you probably have my full attention)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Haven't lifted the warning yet)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (no problem - sorry this is happening for your family)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (It's second tornado season. Don't think it'll be bad, but I like to keep an eye on it)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (And text back and forth until it passes and we know for sure all good :) )

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (so we can/should bring Miranda out of the room scroll?)

[Master] yes to Can

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Yes and talk about what we are thinking IC)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] What will you do with Miranda? Take her home to bury?

[Master] (looking up th edetails on Uplift now for you

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Yes please clarify it for me)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I don't know what she wanted or what Hoffman would want.

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] who would not want to come back?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I don't want to make the same mistake with Miranda as I did with you Shi.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Many people apparently.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Thank you.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I have returned from death once and so will not do it again for instance

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] It is always better to ask than assume anyone wants to return.

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (I think it's a stretch, Not hight enough, she needs two SPELL levels)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] And that is good to know, though I hope it will not be soon.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] *that I will need to know that.

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs "It almost happened last night. But yes I hope no one has to deal with that soon either"

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Warning lifted, all good! You have my full attention)

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (whew)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If you can ask her what she wants we can bring her out of the scroll

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (so glad to hear!)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Yes, I can still do that at least right now.

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (So one of them needs to be lifted 5 levels)

Branwyn (Lisa) hangs the room scroll on the wall and then asks Gerard and Tiberius to help bring Miranda out of it

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Although she can only reply with yes or no... so I will have to think of what to ask.

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (so no, sorry to waste the time)

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (we can't reincarnate, at least)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (5 levels?)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (But with two priests, can't it be done? Or is my math off?)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Sorry if I read things wrong)

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (it's a 7th level spell, need to be 14th level)

[Master] it is a 6th level spell need an 11th level caster

[Master] He is 9th level

[Master] and Shi is 9th level

[Master] so either one can add 2 levels to the other

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (And every 5 levels count to raise one, so we can do 6th)

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (then Shi spell list is wrong, tks)

[Master] but only Elven priests can contribute

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Maybe that's why I was confused, but hey, if the DM says!)

Lisa is receiving the map Cawdor...

Lisa has received the map Cawdor.

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (only 1 priest up to 9th will increase 2 levels, yes)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] What do we ask her? If she wants to come back, yes, but if she does, what can we do? The rod does not exist, and you will not find anything other than reincarnation from elves.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] It is too bad Hoffman isn't here...

[Master] reincarnate is 7th level

[Master] confirmed that

[Master] so you need to make sure she wants to come back

[Master] and get more elven priests to join in to get someone to 14th level

[Master] OR go on to Loosend

[Master] and incur another debt

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (uplift only works with two priests, it's not combine)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Are you sure? I didn't see anything about it not being combined)

[Master] Yes to John, only two

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (but raise dead and ressurect are still options?)

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (Uplift only 2 priests gains spells, Combine multiple priest but no new spells)

[Master] not here in the elven lands Lisa but yes in Loosend

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (but we can't cast raise dead)

[Master] Bosi can get to 10th level

[Master] with him and Mara

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (They're lower level spells, too, so easier to cast if someone has it)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Okay well Mario isn't allowed to take hiatus yet if that's an option you want)

[Master] Kenna can get to 11th with Bosi

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Halfling and Human can uplift then?)

[Master] Kenna is Kayugan

[Master] not Hin religion

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Ahh religion. Snee and Kenna then, too, yes?)

[Master] SNee is back home

[Master] but yes

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Sorry, forgot we're still limited to the roads)

[Master] hah

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (is it Ironic if Miranda was the only one who had Necromantic spells?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (kenna can cast raise dead if John wants to do that)

[Carissa] Sorry for thinking reincarnate was an option, John. I read it wrong initially.

[Master] If you find a high enough level priest

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (or wait until Branwyn learns it - it's a 6th lvl mage spell)

[Carissa] I think all priest have some from that sphere, just not all the same.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (but that could take a while)

[Master] can she learn that now?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (reincarnate that is)

[Carissa] Shi has animate dead... but that's not quite the same :)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (yes branwyn can learn 6th level spells)

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] (Close)

[Master] so that is an option

[Master] take a few days for her to research and learn it

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (so you have options John)

[Master] so the question becomes, does Miranda want to have a Raise Dead or a Reincarnate as a preference

[Master] and you cannot answer that John

[Master] until they cast Speak with Dead

[Kenna Westfoot (JohnA)] only in character

[Lisa] not Kenna's character though :)

[Carissa] So that would be all three questions?

[Carissa] 1) Do you want to come back

[Carissa] 2) Would you prefer raise dead?

[Carissa] (depending on that answer)

[Carissa] 3) Would you prefer reincarnate?

[Master] I did check and none of the drow are above 9th level

[Master] so elven uplift is limited to what you have here

[Carissa] Actually, Speak with Dead doesn't say yes or no.... why am I thinking that?

[Carissa] Just that they're brief and limited answers, often cryptic

[Master] but I will also look at Combine, something John said

[JohnA] does not give addtioanl spells, if she was dead longer it might matter

[Carissa] And we will get at least 4 questions due to level

[JohnA] personally it works better if Branwyn learns and casts, but it is a lot to ask, especialy without Hoffman here to talk

[Lisa] We could ask or she could naturally answer that she wants to go home to Hoffman

[Carissa] Tru

[Lisa] be taken to Hoffman really

[Master] So Carissa was right in her instincts that you can do it with your group but you need everyone here to make it work

[Master] Shi is in the center of a Combine, with 4 other priests of like mind, not same religion

[Master] which you have

[Master] that boosts her 4 levels to 13

[Master] then Shi does Uplift with Macduff he contributes two more levels to her

[Master] to boost her to 15th level

[JohnA] sorry, at that pont Shi is considered higher and cannot be uplifted

[Master] which priest is uplifted can be chosen

[JohnA] wait, head hurting

[Master] It works but you need 4 priest to Combine with Shi first then have Malcom do the uplift, so he cannot be one of the 4

[Master] so Kenna, Bosi, Mara and .......

[JohnA] i was just finishing figuring out Branwyn would have to telaport to loose end, buy the spell

[Master] meaning you make a deal with the Drow

[Master] of course you need Spring and Mario both here

[Carissa] It's a five to one ratio, yes? So you might not need more than two or three. It rounds so someone at level 7 would contirbute 2 levels

[Master] you could do it without the drow it is true

[JohnA] I appreciate that Bob but you are treating the combine as raiing level for gailing spells and McDuff giving two more

[Master] not to COmbine

[Carissa] Ahh combine vs uplift, got it

[Master] Combine gives 1 level per priest comtributing up to 4 levels

[Carissa] Forgot about combine

[JohnA] but only for casting level, not new spells

[Master] THEN that priest that has the additional levels

[Master] yes

[Master] but Uplift only looks at Casting level

[Master] so Shi would be 13th

[Master] or 12th without the Drow

[Carissa] So yes, could work.

[Master] and then Macduff adds two levels with Uplift

[Master] giving her the ability for higher level spells

[JohnA] The amount of increase is one level per five levels of the lower level caster(fractions rounded up).

[Master] This only works because of the number of priests AND not in a combat situation

[JohnA] I cn't believe I am fighting this

[Carissa] The level raises is different for Combine versus Uplift.

[Master] you are correct John but at that point Shi is 12th level and Macduff is 9th level

[Carissa] The five level ONLY applies to Uplift.

[Carissa] The spell combine it is a per person level raise. One person, one level.

[Master] so Macduff adds two levels to Shi

[Master] and technically you can uplift either side

[Master] it does not say it has to be the higher level priest

[JohnA] it does not speciifcly say that, certainly reads like higher priest gets uplifted in example

[Master] sorry it does say it earlier only the higher level priest

[Master] or if the same you can choose

[Master] so you need to find at least 3 more priests to Combine with Shi

[Master] other than Madcuff

[Master] Macduff

[Master] isn't magic fun!

[JohnA] I have moved on from rencarnate, it was a dream not to come true

[Master] OR have Branwyn learn Reincarnate

[JohnA] she has to cast it in 11 days

[Carissa] Raise Dead, right? Or was it reincarnate?

[JohnA] Raise dead is easy on table for Kena, after THE TALK

[Carissa] Or Branwyn teleports out of here with Miranda's body to Loosend and owe another favor.

[JohnA] that is what I do not want, that is why I wrote the letter

[Carissa] The Drow owe us a favor, though. So I don't think reincarnate is completely out of question.

[Master] adn there is a library there for Branwyn to use to learn

[Master] BUT then timing becomes an issue

[Carissa] ....actually, they don't owe us. But they might be scared of us? Or wanting to rekindly relations? I don't know with them.

[JohnA] and we know she does not want to join a guild

[Master] getting the shell back and enough time to learn Reincarnate in time to cast it with no chance of failure

[Master] so to double check that chance

[Master] off to the learnign spells page

[Master] which will not work

[JohnA] the whole plan was for Miranda to be something odd and the Hoffman commiting to Branwyn in exchange for polymorph other on Miranda

[Master] so while story wise that works for Branwyn to do it

[Master] she cannot learn the spell that fast

[JohnA] That was my assment as well

[Master] Lisa you are following along ? just being quiet?

[JohnA] sorry, planning scarred her off

[Lisa] I check in and out

[Lisa] I'm sorry - this priest stuff is not anything I know about so can't really contribute

[Master] so

[Master] currently the plan is to speak with dead to ask questions

[Master] then the actions to take to bring her back are

[Master] Raise Dead OR Reincarnate

[Master] to do the Reincarnate you need three more priests to Combine with Shi

[Master] any level priest

[Master] since most female drow are priestesses

[Master] ......

[Master] if Shi can negociate that

[Carissa] Can try, if John wants to go that route

[Master] one last check, Carissa, Shi needs to be able to cast Combine, Uplift and Reincarnate

[Master] does she have all three of those

[Master] Macduff needs Uplift

[Master] which is an All sphere

[Carissa] She does

[Master] ok

[Master] so then I can step away

[Master] you three can do the Speak with Dead

[Master] to determine Miranda's choices

[JohnA] i thought we agreed the higher level needs to cast rencarnate, and the uplift takes all day so the combine needs to be cast all day, just not gonna happen

[Carissa] Uplift is all day. Combine is one round.

[Carissa] Reincarnate is instant.

[JohnA] The encirclingpriests must concentrate on maintaining the combine effect. They lose all ArmorClass bonuses for shield and Dexterity. If any of them has his concentrationbroken, the combine spell ends immediately. If the combine spell is brokenwhile the central priest is in the act of casting a spell, that spell is ruinedjust as if the caster were disturbed.

[JohnA] Kenna can cast raise dead with no favors

[JohnA] kind of a no brainer

[Carissa] If you prefer to wait for Kenna, then that's up to you.

[JohnA] character not here? then it is the same issue with Branwyn

[Carissa] She is here, but Spring is not, so it could not happen tonight unless Spring jumps on.

[Lisa] Spring is just not here tonight. She should be in next week

[Carissa] And you'd need to find a pointed finger

[JohnA] does it matter what finger?

[Carissa] Doesn't say, so probably doesn't even need to be hers if you want to grab one of MacBeth's...

[JohnA] it is SOmatic not Material

[JohnA] the priest motion

[Carissa] Ahh I was going too necromantic

[Carissa] Unrelated, why is it so easy to raise someone from the dead but so hard to cause an earthquake??

[Carissa] Still comes back to original question of what to ask Miranda?

[JohnA] raise dead does lose con, there is alwasy a cost

[Lisa] absolutely no clue

[Carissa] Do they? Missed that. I suppose that makes me feel slightly better :OP

[JohnA] Do you want us to bring you back

[Carissa] *:P

[JohnA] then go for there

[Lisa] How are you feeling today?

[JohnA] what is your favoriate color?

[Carissa] Ooh a little bit dead, been better.

[Carissa] Black as death.

[Carissa] If you want to go ahead with Speak with Dead, we can do that.

[Carissa] I think that Shi can talk to the others between questions...

[Lisa] do we need to confirm the raise dead thing as the 2nd question?

[Carissa] Yes, I would think so.

[Lisa] so that's half the questions

[Carissa] Figure ask if she wants to come back, does she want to come back with raise dead and then.... dunno

[Carissa] "Anything else you want to say, Miranda?"

[Carissa] We don't HAVE to use all four questions.

[JohnA] "my last thoughts were of Hoffman"

[Carissa] If you're all good, just tell me when.

[Lisa] when

[JohnA] NOW!

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] If you all are ready, we'll see what Miranda wants...

Branwyn (Lisa) nods

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Speak with Dead: I may speak with the recently deceased and ask a few questions.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Miranda, do you want to come back from the dead?

[Master] remember cryptic

Miranda Paige (JohnA)] not as a burden

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] Do you want to come back as you were if you were not a burden?

Miranda Paige (JohnA)] (channeling the real Miranda now)

Miranda Paige (JohnA)] Mayhaps

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (tries not to strangle Miranda)

Miranda Paige (JohnA)] (maybe explain that it is not that hard)

Miranda Paige (JohnA)] (the questions does not need to be cryptic)

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] just tell her Kenna can raise her

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] As it will not be difficult to find a way to bring you back to this plane of existence, do you want us to bring you back?

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] for Hoffman

[JohnA] for Hoffman

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] How important is the form you come back to life as to you?

[JohnA] I am back at the keyboard.

Miranda Paige (JohnA)] for Hoffman

Miranda Paige (JohnA)] i will always be me

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) takes and breath and shakes her head

Miranda Paige (JohnA)] (BOB MADE ME)

[Master] LOL

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (LOL)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] So was that a yes?

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) to the others, "If I understand her correctly, she doesn't want bringing her back to be a burden, but she is okay with coming back one way or another.

[Acolyte Gerard (JohnA)] sounded like a yes to me

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Actually I can't remember if they can hear... or was it only Shi who can hear her? Either way, there you go

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Good then when Kenna wakes up she can do that.

[Master] I will check the casting requirements between Raise Dead and Reincarnate

[Lisa] Isn't that what you guys have been doing?

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Main difference is one is a guarantee and one is not; my guess for the level difference)

[Carissa] Think Bob just wants to double check :)

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Cat is being needy. Can I borrow some catnip, Lisa?)

Lisa hands jar over

[Lisa] The raised person must roll a successful resurrection survival check to survive the ordeal (see Table 3: Constitution) and loses 1 point of Constitution. Further, the raised person is weak and helpless, needing a minimum of one full day of rest in bed for each day or fraction he was dead. The person has 1 hit point when raised and must regain the rest by natural healing or curative magic.

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Thanks! lol)

[Master] The key different is the bed rest for each day dead for Riase Dead but that is not a restriction in Reincarnate

[Master] level limit to how many days will not matter presuming Spring logs in next week

[Master] and you stay here in the village for the two/three days

[Master] SO ask three Drow to help out and you can do Reincarnate tonight's session or wait for the next time Spring logs in

[Lisa] you could kill a person with the reverse of that spell

[Lisa] The somatic component of the spell is a pointed finger. The reverse of the spell, slay living, grants the victim a saving throw vs. death magic. If the saving throw is successful, the victim sustains damage equal to that of a cause serious wounds spell--i.e., 2d8+1 points. Failure means the victim dies instantly.

[Master] to do the Raise Dead

[Carissa] Huh, well that could be useful and/or evil.

[Master] but it is good to know that before you head into Skull Church again and let someone get off spells

[Master] BUT

[Carissa] Nuke it.

[Master] your choice now

[Master] Lisa and Carissa

[Master] solve Miranda now

[Master] or wait

[Master] give john a fun challenge with a new race (maybe)

[Master] or with a lower Con

[Lisa] isn't that John's choice not ours?

[Master] He had his say

[Master] grins but you can ask him

[Master] I am open to what ever you want to do

[Carissa] His say was to wait for Kenna, if I understand correctly.

[Carissa] And Miranda wishes for it to not be a burden. We don't know if asking the drow would be a burden, to be fair.

[Carissa] If we have other things we can do tonight, I'm fine if we wait.

[Lisa] His original plan was for the reincarnate but I thought let it drop since it seemed like too much of a hassle

[JohnA] and I can log off now to keep the dramma

[Master] no

[Lisa] sigh

[Master] I would like a decision

[JohnA] wait for Spring

[Lisa] k

[Master] OK

[Lisa] raise dead it is

[Master] so then

[Master] next choice

[Master] click off time back to Loosend? or Encounters on the way back?

[Lisa] what was the vote on that?

[Carissa] I don't plan to have a character for the immediate trip back, so I vote click off :)

[Carissa] I tihnk it was split

[JohnA (to GM only)] Character sheet for [Miranda Paige]] modified: Ability Scores - Resurrection Survival:: CHANGED: 85 (null).

[Master] it would be at least 6 days clicked off so would be the 20th adn arrive in Loosend

[Carissa] Ryan was okay with encounters, Spring didn't want to click off, Michael was fine with encounters

[Carissa] No preference from Mario

[Lisa] think I was the only one that wanted to click off in the posts

[JohnA] I wanted to too


[Lisa] ok

[Carissa] Yes, John and you, and me at this point

[Carissa] TMO was the only one who did not answer it that I can see.

[Lisa] compromise and encounter it to scary, click to loosend and encounter to Dragon Fen?

[Master] Encounters to Scary are a requirement

[Lisa] well then

[Carissa] There you go.

[Master] Miranda died on the 12th

[Lisa] Ilero and Branwyn need to see the witches before we leave

[JohnA] still sorry, I must go, I thank you and wish you the best

[Lisa] will be great Indigo Branwyn and Tiberius can do the encounters

[Master] Shi want to go with Ilero and Branwyn to have a voice?

[Carissa] To the witches?

[JohnA] enjoy

[Carissa] Might as well

[Lisa] sure I just said they needed to

JohnA has left the game on Fri Jan 10 21:42:56 EST 2020

[Lisa] anyone can come

[Carissa] Haha just saw that. I need to read more than a single line above :)

[Master] anyone else?

[Lisa] well tiberius and Indigo would be there

[Carissa] Woo!

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (lol)

[Master] So in the evening you head into the marsh

[Master] if you go tonight you still do not have spells

[Master] and Branwyn is not walking wounded but does not have spells or more hit points back yet

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (yeah well)

[Master] OK

[Master] just making sure

[Master] it is the best time to visit them

[Carissa] Hey hey, Shi had like, one spell she never cast or something... I think

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (lol - there is never a good time to visit 3 evil witches)

[Carissa] (lol)

[Master] You are at he entrance to the underground cave

[Master] the stairs going down

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn moved 20'05".

Branwyn (Lisa) looks to see if the thorns are back yet

Shi'Nynze (Carissa) nods and follows

[Master] yes

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (forgot about those)

Branwyn (Lisa) calls down "Hello! We have come for the prophecy you have promised to Prince Ilero"

Branwyn (Lisa) turns "Tiberius, can you please cut these out of the way for me? I fear they may kill me at this point"

[Canidia (Master)] You come for wisdom but do you have any your self?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn moved 3'05".

[Master] Lord Tiberius moved 24'08".

[Shi'Nynze (Carissa)] (Thorn! Attack thorns!)

[Master] Lord Tiberius's Current Hit Points: adjusted to 39 (-8) - Lightly Wounded

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (how appropriate)

Branwyn (Lisa) calls down "Was I mistaken?"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Cawdor is safe

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And did not fall

[Virago (Master)] Words are powerful things, Actions resonate with the telling

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Macbeth is dead as well as his wife

[Virago (Master)] Prince Ilero Saucha is a true hero, and all heros are celebrated. Few heroes survive to go home to be happy, they learn to be content where they are

[Canidia (Master)] Branwyn the Mysterious has a weight upon her, only she can choose to set it down

Branwyn (Lisa) unsheaths the evil dagger and walks down the stairs

Branwyn (Lisa) holds it up blade sideways and not pointed at them

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Macduff has Macbeth's head but this is proof of his Lady's death

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And yes I would like to set it down

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If it should fall into the cauldron from whence it came, the nightmares would cease

[Master] "Double, double, toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble!" Three horrid-looking witches, indistinguishable from each other, ply a boiling black pot and chant an eldritch incantation. Above the pot floats the shadowy image of Hecate, a dark-haired woman with hell hounds at her heel. As she tosses in slithery items from an overstocked shelf, one of the witches intones, "Round about the cauldron go; in the poison entrails throw. Thad, that under cold stone days and nights has thirty-one. Sweltered venom, sleeping got, boil first in the charmed pot." Another takes up the chant: "Fillet of a fenny snake, in the cauldron boil and bake; eye of newt, and toe of frog, wool of bat, and tongue of dog, adder's fork, and blindworm's sting, lizard's leg, and howlet's wing-for a charm of powerful trouble, like a hell-broth boil and bubble." The third witch follows her sisters. "Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,witch's mummy, maw and gulf of the ravined salt-sea shark, root of hemlock digged in dark. Cool it with a baboon's blood, then the charm is firm and good." And with that, the shadowy figure vanishes. In her place, wisps of light become horrific apparitions. The witches look at the ghosts with malevolent grins, and one cackles, "By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes."

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn moved 26'01".

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn moved 1'03".

Branwyn (Lisa) steps to the edge of the cauldron

Branwyn (Lisa) evil dager screams "NO! Think of the power! What we could do!"

Branwyn (Lisa) drops the dagger into the cauldron and jumps back

Virago (Master) cackles and stirs

[Master] the cauldron seems to glow

[Master] and the witches seem to regain health

Branwyn (Lisa) bows "It did serve well against the shadows it brought forth. But it was time out there was done."

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You look the better for its return

[Canidia (Master)] What is given can be returned, Those with power can recover

[Master] Lord Tiberius: Attack: Thorn: ((12-(d20+2))+2) [1d20=4] 8 [MODIFIED (+2)]

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Unless you have more words for Prince Ilero, I shall take my leave ladies.

[Virago (Master)] Heroes rest after deeds but always listen for the call to duty

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at Ilero and nods

Branwyn (Lisa) waits for Tiberius to make sure the path is clear and runs up the stairs

[Master] and you are all back in Cawdor ready to sleep the night to regain all your spells, and heal a bit

Lisa is receiving the map Cawdor...

Lisa has received the map Cawdor.

[Lisa] so did the dagger end up leaving a mark on her hand?

[Master] yes

[Master] she has a burn mark on her palm

[Carissa] At least it isn't blood

Carissa is receiving the map Cawdor...

[Master] though you can get better directions now from the Elves

Carissa has received the map Cawdor.

[Carissa] I suppose this means Peyton has been dealth with one way or another

[Lisa] so what is happening with Shi. She's not coming back with us?

[Master] I just brought up Google Earth for those questions

[Carissa] And? Last we talked, Wildlands wasn't very far and it was possible to visit

[Carissa] Or so we were thinking

[Master] 330 miels to Bindbole Wood

[Master] Shi can travel 24 miles per day

[Master] That is where she wanted to go right?

[Master] 14 days there

[Carissa] Bindbole is where her mother is from. She was looking at actual Wildlands which I think is actually farther...

[Master] different direction one moment

[Carissa] Haathkash

[Master] Divaekah?

[Carissa] Yes

[Carissa] Either there or one of the other towns in that area.

[Master] 522 miles

[Master] 22 days

[Lisa] brb

[Carissa] So not as close as I thought. Sigh

[Master] we said 9 days back to Loosend?

[Master] from here

[Master] This is as close as you have been back in this direction

[Master] and it looks like there is not any plans to come back this way in the near future

[Carissa] Anything she'd have to do travel-wise? Or just... she gets there and that's that?

[Master] just click

[Carissa] How long from there back to Loosend, though?

[Master] Shi would be gone for 50 days

[Master] just over two months

[Master] they will be back in Dragon Fen in 9 to 10 days

[Master] so for roleplaying you would have to run a different character, Thistle

[Carissa] Yes, of course. But can easily write stories for Shi

[Master] for how ever long it takes for Shi to return back (play out those 40 days)

[Carissa] Although, if they go to Skull Church right after this, Shi wouldn't be going there anyways.

[Master] at all?

[Carissa] She was very scarred from the last trip there :P

[Carissa] Honestly, I don't have an interest in skull church, but my views on it are tainted.

[Master] as always up to you

[Carissa] So then to really decide, I guess I'm curious as to the plans once they get back to Dragon Fen. How much would I miss Shi not being there for nearly two months or more?

[Carissa] Dang girls should have visited during those 3-4 years we clicked off...

[Master] the first thing will be to bring in TMO's new character

[Master] then to go back to Skull Church and evict the Necromancer

[Carissa] Well then yeah, Shi can miss that :)

[Master] THEN what ever adventures happen

[Master] You can play Thistle

[Master] and we see where that goes

[Carissa] A good question. Playing a scout at Skull Church ALSO did not go well for me....

[Carissa] But then, not sure TMO will let me play more guild characters, either. ;)

[Master] BUT if you do not click off time going back adn do encounters

[Lisa] back

[Master] it will be mid April before they get to Loosend

[Master] and that is only the first 7 days

[Master] so you might not have Shi back till next November

[Carissa] Wow

[Carissa] Which is why I was voting clicking off time...

[Master] BUT you cannot

[Carissa] Ugh this is more thinking than I wanted

[Master] Your options

[Master] Shi goes off on her own, nice story that fits the character, the group has to go day by day until Spring gets back to Riase Dead because clicking off time means she cannot Raise Miranda, too much time will pass

[Master] Shi goes off on her own, nice story that fits the character but Reincarnates Miranda before she leaves

[Master] in both cases Carissa plays a different character for much of 2020 most likely

[Lisa] can we say Kenna casts on miranda and then next week they both roll

[Master] no sorry

[Lisa] if everything goes well miranda is with us

[Lisa] miranda needs 1 day bedrest for each day she is dead anyway

[Carissa] I may not be playing her, but stiill lots of stories to write. Of course, all that said, group-wise, that'll leave us with only Spring for priest characters depending on what happens with Miranda

[Lisa] so we can't leave for another 2 days anyway

[Lisa] if we cut tonight off at this point and wait for spring ...

[Carissa] I still am leaning towards Shi going. So many story ideas have been playing in my head. Tradeoff for her going is more stories on site.

[Master] Yes to Lisa on that last point but it does not change Carissa needing to decide for Shi

[Carissa] So with Shi gone, Thistle is left and/or maybe a guild character if TMO let's that happen, correct?

[Master] talk it out between you two

[Lisa] no

[Master] yes

[Master] and what is no Lisa?

[Lisa] no it doesn't change things for Carissa

[Lisa] sorry a late no

[Master] ok

[Master] I am going to do some notes

[Master] and XP

[Master] so will not be able to type here

[Master] so you two can discuss I can see it just not contribute

[Carissa] I do hate the thought of Skull Church without a priest, but Shi wasn't in my plan for that anyways. Too bad she doesn't have that follower/pet.

[Lisa] I don't think there is much for me to say other than you should do what you want and not worry about the other story arcs. There will be other characters to play

[Carissa] (Ahh so close, Mara)

[Lisa] we just need someone who wants to wear an evil ring and command undead

[Carissa] True.

[Master] Two people with more XP to next level than Branwyn now

[Master] and that catches everyone up to the end of the story arc

[Master] and we are at the last decision

[Master] Shi is leaving

[Master] so does she do the Reincarnate now then leave?

[Master] or let Kenna do Raise Dead

[Carissa] A decision that has to be made now and not wait and see if Spring logs in next week? :)

[Lisa] and would she toss some healing at Branwyn before she leaves? :-)

[Carissa] Haha that's an easier decision

[Carissa] Actually....

[Master] grins

[Carissa] It's spring, they're in the forest. There are berries, right?

[Master] yes

[Carissa] Any rolls or just... she has more than enough?

[Master] she has a reasonable number

[Master] (3d12+12) [3d12=3,6,9] 30

[Master] how is that

[Carissa] Perfect

[Carissa] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Orison: I can create minor effects.

[Carissa] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Orison: I can create minor effects.

[Carissa] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Orison: I can create minor effects.

[Lisa] I was just going to ask Shur reasonable berry number or Indigo reasonable amount of berries to have number

[Master] grins

[Carissa] That's 9 each...times three...

[Carissa] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Orison: I can create minor effects.

[Carissa] Okay four. That's 34 to Branwyn, toss the other two to Skarp, I guess.

[Master] Branwyn's Current Hit Points: adjusted to 38 (34) - Unharmed

[Lisa] Thank you!

[Master] Skarphedin's Current Hit Points: adjusted to 49 (2) - Lightly Wounded

[Carissa] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Goodberry: I turn (2d4) [2d4=1,2] 3 fresh berries into magical berries that keep me fed and heal 1 point of damage each. They stay good for (9+1) 10 days.

[Carissa] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Goodberry: I turn (2d4) [2d4=2,2] 4 fresh berries into magical berries that keep me fed and heal 1 point of damage each. They stay good for (9+1) 10 days.

[Carissa] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Goodberry: I turn (2d4) [2d4=1,1] 2 fresh berries into magical berries that keep me fed and heal 1 point of damage each. They stay good for (9+1) 10 days.

[Carissa] Shi'Nynze casts a spell against : Goodberry: I turn (2d4) [2d4=2,3] 5 fresh berries into magical berries that keep me fed and heal 1 point of damage each. They stay good for (9+1) 10 days.

[Lisa] 1 too many spells?

[Carissa] So you have 14 goodberries for the moment. Any reason not to use all 5 slots?

[Lisa] oops I kept seeing 10

[Carissa] Haha

[Master] If you are going to do Combine for the Reincarnate

[Lisa] was thinking that was berry number

[Carissa] Okay yes, was thinking I needed to save for a reason. She still has one level one and one level two left

[Master] So the final choice has arrived

[Carissa] Why are all her healing spells just 1st and 2nd?

[Master] because the next ones are at 4th level

[Carissa] And she doesn't have those. Guess she's only a part-time healer :)

[Master] and does she have major access to healing ? or only minor access

[Carissa] I think only minor

[Master] there you go

[Carissa] Fine by me. Never wanted her to be a major healer.

[Master] all magic comes with a price

[Carissa] But that's all the healing for now.

[Master] deary

[Carissa] Yeah the price of summoning insect and making giant spiders instead of healing. A good tradeoff.

[Lisa] we also have brother foto at home

[Lisa] he can heal

[Carissa] Ah! I keep forgetting about him! It's been so long... or feels like it.

[Lisa] so what happens if next friday comes and no Spring?

[Carissa] Oh wait! Just noticed. Thistle missed out on henchman XP.

[Master] Miranda does not come back

[Lisa] she wasn't on this adventure

[Master] and Thistle was not... there we go

[Carissa] That explains it. I forget.

[Carissa] Well dang, Shi will miss out on 50+ days worth. Oh well. Not like she'll level soon.

[Carissa] If Spring isn't on, is Branwyn teleporting to Loosend with dead body an option

[Lisa] so you are saying Shi will not be there at the beginning of roleplay next friday?

[Carissa] No goodbyes or anything?

[Master] that is up to Carissa

[Master] You can do the Reincarnate now

[Master] get back to Scary

[Master] and click off time

[Master] and be in Loosend within a hour of realy time

[Master] you two are here and are in charge

[Master] and a new page is set up for you Carissa

[Lisa] John originally wanted the reincarnate - I think if we can do that, why not?

[Carissa] Yay storytime!! I'll be asking people as I go opinons on what stories to do :)

[Carissa] My original thought, but fully admit the back and forth and all that kind of put me off it by the end of it all, lol

[Lisa] sounds like Bob is ready and we could just do it

[Lisa] Right?

[Carissa] Go talk to some Drow and leave John with a surprise character? :)

[Master] horrible game play min/max take advantage of things Reincarnate, if she comes back and you do not like it Kill her and then have Kenna do a Raise Dead later

[Carissa] Shi wouldn't leave until the Miranda thing was resolved somehow

[Carissa] LOL

[Carissa] I suppose that is also an option

[Master] actually now that I think of it no

[Lisa] OOC I really don't want this to repeat into a 2 hour conversation next week

[Master] would be a kill her adn do another reincarnate

[Master] and fully agree Lisa

[Carissa] Same, please

[Master] is why you two are making the decision now

[Carissa] Reincarnate now. Let's do this.

[Master] OK

[Carissa] Oooh all capitals

[Lisa] That was the original plan

[Master] so Shi talks to the Drow for help

[Master] they do the combine

[Master] then you and Macduff do the Uplift

[Carissa] (Man she'll have stories to tell home)

[Lisa] (LOL)

[Master] and then Shi casts Reincarnate

[Carissa] (My chart or yours?)

[Carissa] (Er, my spell roll minimum?)

[Master] again this would not work in a combat situation only in a case like this

[Master] and it will be a d100

[Carissa] (d100) [1d100=48] 48

[Carissa] (Human on Shi's chart...)

[Master] and she comes back as a Human

[Master] a different body

[Carissa] Oh, okay. At least it's somewhat exciting.

[Master] now Carissa

[Master] heads female tails male

[Carissa] Worried it was going to end anticlimactic

[Carissa] A flip of the ol' kLoOge.Coin results in: Heads

[Carissa] ....sigh still kind of anticlimactic, lol

[Master] so she comes back as a female human

[Lisa] so best possible worlds

[Master] one last set of numbers for you

[Master] another d100

[Lisa] Will this Miranda age like a regular human?

[Carissa] (d100) [1d100=11] 11

[Master] Yes to Lisa

[Master] as she is from the Eastern Realms

[Carissa] Wonder how she'll take that

[Master] looking at a list of countries now

[Carissa] Wu is too, right?

[Master] yes

[Master] d20

[Carissa] (d20) [1d20=8] 8

[Lisa] 48 on the mage book chart would have made her a half-orc

[Lisa] Shi would have reincarnated her and then killed her :D

[Carissa] Well dang, that could have been interesting. Not sure how Shi would have felt...

[Carissa] LOL

[Carissa] "No no we need to try again STAB"

[Master] a jungle 'warrior priestest' from the jungles of Malatra

[Master] does not mean she is a priestess

[Master] or a warrior jsut the concept for John to complete

[Lisa] nice!

[Carissa] So she is a different class now? And does she have any knowledge of Malatra or just body?

[Master] He will roll the stats, see how they have changed etc

[Master] just the body

[Master] all the memories of Miranda

[Carissa] But none of the skills?

[Master] and presume the same classes

[Master] becasue if he rolls a decent Wisdom

[Master] and intelligence

[Master] and now

[Master] Shi can say her goodbyes

[Master] and then the rest fo the group heads back to Loosend

[Master] and now do you click that off?

[Master] or encounter all the way back?

[Carissa] It was an even split on that decision with two abstaining votes.

[Carissa] BUT

[Master] there are two people here

[Carissa] If Lisa and I make the deicision, we agreed to clikc off

[Lisa] thought we were compromising

[Carissa] With that compromise, sure.

[Lisa] carissa isn't returning why should she get a vote?

[Lisa] :D

[Carissa] LOL

[Master] grims

[Carissa] I'm just a ghost now.

[Lisa] you said we had to hoof it to Scary

[Lisa] I was thinking as a compromise we could click to Loosend and encounter to Dragon Fen

[Master] that does make it lean towards clicking off or Carissa will not have anyone to play... strike that she would pick up Gerard

[Master] yes to Lisa that was my thought too

[Lisa] that is true

[Master] and yes to making it to scary by foot and encounter

[Lisa] but we lose Gerard in Loosend

[Carissa] Yes. You typed it faster than me.

[Lisa] We are not adopting every stray we find

[Carissa] I was trying to say more words than needed...

[Carissa] Poor Peyton...

[Lisa] lol

[Lisa] poor evil acid spitting wyrm Peyton

[Carissa] I don't think he wanted to be adopted anyways. Or so I will keep telling myself.

[Lisa] we are picking up orphan Amie in Loosend though

[Lisa] I don't think she has skills though

[Carissa] And Hoffman is now in Loosend, yes?

[Carissa] Not for me to play, just for fighting purposes.

[Lisa] not sure

[Carissa] There are more strays in Loosend, I'm sure.

[Carissa] Probably don't spit acid.

[Lisa] lol

[Lisa] you could play Indigo

[Lisa] he's easy

[Carissa] Nah, it's weird playing someone else's character

[Carissa] And I have a bad habit of killing them off it seems.

[Lisa] It's hard to kill Indigo

[Lisa] No one's ever done it

[Carissa] LOL

[Carissa] I'd rather not take that challenge up

[Master] so the 3 months of game time Shi will be gone are now on the story page for her

[Carissa] Going to be fun finding a way to make her want to leave

[Carissa] Well, leave in good time and not like.... 10 years or whatever elf's think isn't long

[Carissa] *elves

[Lisa] does she want to take the wand of wonder with her?

[Carissa] Hmm, good question.

[Carissa] Not sure she'd ask for it back, but if it was offered, she'd take it, if that makes sense?

[Lisa] if Shi says she's going away for months, branwyn would offer it.

[Carissa] Feel like she'd have at least a little guilt asking, but then if so, yes, she'll take it with her.

[Lisa] Bran knows it's not hers and she is only holding it because Shi can't cast with it

[Carissa] Doubt Bran would cast while Shi is gone, right? :)

[Carissa] So no lose if that's true.

[Carissa] *loss.... ugh spelling now

[Lisa] depends on what weird situations she got into but not likely

[Carissa] Well it'll make her family happier to see her with it if she goes to visit them

[Lisa] yes!

[Carissa] Right now visit with her best friend first then... well, you guys will help me decide :)

[Lisa] you can tell them how the wand blinded half the party one night in the woods :)

[Carissa] Choose Your Own Adventure! Featuring: Shi

[Carissa] Ahaha oh the stories to tell. And stories to make her remember why she's adventuring :)

[Carissa] OH!

[Carissa] But she wouldn't have left without sending a letter back to Thistle. I can write it later.

[Lisa] that's good

[Carissa] And since it's only Lisa, I guess this means she gives it to Bran to give to Thistle, please.

[Lisa] Can Thistle read?

[Carissa] She can now!

[Lisa] Sure

[Lisa] Yay!

[Carissa] Oooh....shooot

[Carissa] Wait but Shi can't write W Common....

[Carissa] Er, or any chance Shi asked Branwyn to help write the letter and it can be written in Elvish and Common?

[Lisa] or have Kel read it to her?

[Lisa] Ohhh ... Kel's gonna be irritated

[Carissa] Yeah....and things are weird between them...

[Lisa] Shi goes home and Kel's in a treehouse in the Mist

[Carissa] Yup

[Carissa] Which is why I'm still debating if Shi goes all the way home knowing his irritation or if she just visits her friend and therefore didn't REALLY go back home.... but she'll end up there, I think.

[Carissa] But then, we don't know what Kel's doing now. Maybe he decided to leave, too. Who knows.

[Carissa] Except for BOB since he's his now

[Master] Kel woudl wait to go home for Shi to go

[Master] so......

[Carissa] Ouch, so yeah. She'd want Branwyn to help write the letter... or she'll word it differently

[Lisa] k

[Master] But I do need one last set of encounter rolls for the night

[Carissa] Not like she really planned to go home. It was just supposed to be a trip to Loosend

[Carissa] This is from Loosend to Dragon Fen? Or through the forest?

[Master] to Scary

[Lisa] Roll #1: (d20) [1d20=11] 11

[Master] 2 more please

[Lisa] Roll #1: (d20) [1d20=6] 6

[Carissa] (d10) [1d10=5] 5

[Lisa] Roll #1: (d20) [1d20=9] 9

[Master] and you make it to Scary easily

[Master] on the night of the 14th

[Carissa] Thanks Grey Elf directions!

[Master] stay the night

[Master] leave on the 15th

[Lisa] by the fence

[Master] 6 days of CLICK

[Master] and arrive in Loosend on the morning of the 22nd

[Master] I know the math is not perfect

[Master] but Branwyn still gets back to Loosend in plenty of time

[Master] Time of Day: 07:07 AM. Day 22 Ced ___ se, Man {Early Spring} 22nd, 348 SKR.

[Lisa] great!

[Master] a generic traveling map

[Carissa] So ankhegs

[Master] so next week is the entrance back to Loosend

[Master] talking with them there

[Master] potential new characters

[Master] from TMO and Fritz

[Master] and John creates Miranda again

[Carissa] Picking up strays

[Master] Loosend is the place for just about anyone to be

[Lisa] sounds good

[Master] other than that is people traveling to Dragon Fen for a reason

[Master] to live there

[Master] or to ask favors

[Lisa] that well has been boarded up

[Carissa] No sightseeing? We should work on that.

[Master] lol

[Master] and lol

[Lisa] so sounds like we made some progress

[Master] very much so

[Carissa] Lots of decisions.

[Carissa] (Also thinking Shi wrote a letter to Kel, too. Not like her not to, will also work on that)
