[Master] Hello!

[Spring] hi!

[Master] how are you feeling?

[Spring] cheerful :-) how are you?

[Master] life is good

[Master] has been a decent day

[Master] and looking forward to Wednesday

[Spring] I got my hair done the way I like without fisticuffs. that's nearly impossible

[Master] when it is all done

[Master] I saw

[Spring] cosmetologists always want to fight me

[Master] glad you were able to get what you wanted

[Spring] sorry, didn't mean to derail

[Master] not at all

[Spring] what is all done Wednesday?

[Master] Elections on my part

[Spring] oh gotcvha

[Spring] also, I had a great lunch!

[Spring] flounder, hush puppies, slow and salad

[Spring] so great

[Master] I did want to confirm with you on the letters you are writing. Do you want me to respond there? or use them as the spring board for Roleplay here

[Master] excellent

[Master] one thing I miss about South Carolina hushpuppies

[Spring] I would like for anyone to respond there or here

[Master] ok

[Spring] I am actually enjoying it, which is shocking me

[Spring] normally I need a direct mission and some immediate challenges

[Master] if it seems appropriate then I will write there, and others I will use them as part of the "off camera" story telling here

[Spring] politics and strategy put me to sleep

[Master] you are doing very well

[Master] Lisa said it was fun to watch from the sidelines

[Spring] hee! thanks

[Master] She is trying very hard to let you be in charge and not influence

[Master] and I like what the group is doing

[Spring] but influence is a good thing. if it were real, Snee would be asking for all sorts of input

[Spring] and trying to use the ideas that seem to fit best

[Master] grins She has Kenna there to ask

[Master] I was thinking that Kenna might want to go out on the mining exploration

[Spring] oh yes, I think you are right

[Spring] knowledge seeking is right up her alley and people could get injured doing explorations

[Master] Kenna and Skarp as the two main people with the new gnome, Tiberius along

[Spring] oh that sounds like a fun group

[Master] Talwin and Brer back to deal with the goblins with Snee and Emerald

[Spring] and the professor

[Spring] I keep forgetting her name

[Master] could go either way

[Spring] potoma

[Spring] professor P

[Spring] already my favorite

[Master] I think Potoma on mines and Thistle with Goblins

[Spring] I think the prof and Kenna are gonna get along gangbusters

[Master] yes

[Master] that is the goal for the lower level people

[Master] to create people that can be interesting to roleplay with

[Master] and so to your new page, that is nice

[Master] Here is the limits for the Protectorate

[Spring] ooooh it looks like I wasn't far wrong

[Master] no you did good

[Spring] my circle was a bit smaller but not much

[Master] Essentially from the battle site to the north to the battle site to the south

[Master] and you were spot on with the dikes you can see those there just to the west of Hourglass

[Spring] yup, I reread the page with the history on it

[Spring] I知 starting to understand the terrain better

[Master] Did you see the expanded Skull Church history timeline?

[Spring] I think so, if it's the one on the skull church page

[Master] it includes a bunch of stuff from Black cloaks diary

[Master] yes

[Master] there is the time line for the Craniate Wastes, then a different one for Skull Church. Both has several of the same entries

[Master] and now there will be a similar one for Dragon Fen

[Master] that I will add to with the Protectorate information

[Spring] that'll be cool

[Master] Want this to end up how Spring shapes the landscape

[Spring] hahahaha

[Master] your own stamp on this part of the world

[Master] I will want input from others on the history of the battle sites like we did for the first one

[Spring] well I did see that somebody already wants a trail going from Traveler's Way across the wastes westward

[Master] as we feed things

[Master] yes

[Master] I said that

[Spring] and there's a burned out village directly west that it makes sense to revive

[Master] it will cut down the distance traveled dramatically

[Spring] but then that tower ...

[Spring] that troubling looking tower

[Master] grins those two are outside of the Protectorate at least

[Spring] yeah, that's some of what took me by surprise the other day

[Master] It will also be a big thing to build

[Master] Canals and Roads are the two largest scale projects to build

[Spring] I don't see us being able to do a whole lot to revitalize the protectorate if we can't have some kind of parallel effort up and down Farmer's Turn

[Master] other than a full scale castle, and even then often they take more time

[Master] This is true

[Spring] so maybe we need to ask the Queen or some other folks if they want to get in on this somehow

[Master] that would be asking Branwyn to ask the Queen

Spring nods


[Master] Common waypoints there near the bottom

[Master] combined with the Farmers Turn page


[Master] Quelcon Estates Palace to Redfern Lake is 26 miles

[Master] just a bit over one days travel

[Master] 24 miles per day is standard

[Spring] you know what I was thinking, looking at these battle sites?

[Master] tell me

[Spring] tourism. re-enactments LOL

[Master] perfectly good thoughts

[Spring] I come from near Vicksburg, so, you know

[Spring] folks do that

[Master] just like bringing pilgrims to the church

[Master] but for reenactments you do have to consider those four battlefields nearby

[Master] are from Civil Wars

[Spring] Vicksburg

[Master] the current ruling family may or may not like that idea

[Spring] oh we gotta spin it right

[Master] yes

[Spring] the bad guys have to lose. very important

[Spring] the victors get to write the history :-)

[Master] grins

[Master] and you have just had a fourth civil war

[Spring] my lunch was so huge, I can't believe I知 hungry again

[Master] not officially declared just lots of skirmishes

[Master] it is Friday night that means snacks and drinks

[Spring] do the parties in the civil wars always divide along the same lines?

[Master] no

[Spring] is it the same war over and over or different divisions?

[Spring] ah

[Spring] that could complicate the re-enactments

[Spring] should do some consulting to see how to best spin them :-)

[Master] the only Noble Family/Estate that has been on the winning side of every Civil War is the Vilmar Estates

[Master] and they back the current Queen also

[Spring] oh good

[Master] The current Ambassador to Terraguard, that is posted to Dryads Lair is the heir apparent

[Spring] oh and I got SIX WHOLE HOURS of sleep last night! forgot to mention earlier

[Master] excellent

[Spring] oh, interesting

[Master] I am sorry we are not making progress on the Wednesday game, and brining the history of Hourglass forward

[Spring] was the ambassador in the military prior? I always think of heirs doing military first

[Master] yes

[Master] several years ago both real and game time the Queen awarded titles etc.

Carissa has received the map Church Ground Floor.

[Spring] hi Carissa!

[Carissa] Hello!

[Carissa] How's life?

[Carissa] P.S. Nice haircut!

[Spring] thanks!

[Spring] I had a great lunch too

[Spring] it really was nice.

[Spring] flounder and slaw, salad, hush puppies

[Spring] super fresh

[Spring] how are you Carissa?

[Carissa] sorry walked away to make a drink

[Master] Did you like all the additions to the Skull Church history Carissa

[Carissa] Decent. I went to the doctor today because I finally decided to stop ignoring pain I had. The "good news" is it's just a kidney stone! Not something worse like I feared.

[Carissa] So much history

[Master] I think I am supposed to say Yea! Kidney Stone! but that sounds not quite right

[Spring] heh

[Spring] sounds owie

[Carissa] It doesn't, but that's was my reaction when the doctor told me, lol

[Spring] I guess everything is relative

[Spring] I saw a thing on Facebook about "may it just be the flu" as a blessing

[Carissa] I've had more than my fair share so at least I know the routine. Only about three of the... more than I want to admit ended up in the hospital. The others I passed no problem

[Carissa] Haha all relative!

[Master] that sounds like you need to drink a LOT more water

[Master] shakes a finger at you

[Spring] damn little doggie just slapped me ie in the face with his ears

[Spring] them ears is painful!

[Spring] Sophie can't slap me with her ears. hers are fluffy

[Carissa] 2 liters isn't enough, no. I also need to start getting more lemon in me again

[Carissa] lol

[Master] I try for a gallon a day of water

[Master] when I am home is easier

[Master] my cup I use here is 4 cups of liquid

[Master] so just 4 of those every day

[Master] I did like this inspiration

[Master] The Necromancer Brip the Dangerous is defeated by the Necromancer Red Cloak

[Carissa] I have to be careful not to throw off my electrolytes. Too easy for me.

[Master] I add Gatorade and other mixes into some of the water

[Spring] I saw that about Brip but didn't get its significance

[Master] He was the last Necromancer to control Skull Church before Red Cloak

[Master] who became a key person the Dragonslayers have had to deal with

[Spring] well I see one error I made

[Spring] I suggested saing Tyrin for the name, but I missed the part where he was an evil necromancer

[Master] what?

[Master] Well

[Master] He is interned in the crypts

[Spring] how'd he get sainted? was his miracle the result of redemption?

[Carissa] Someone nice can have the name of someone evil. Evil people don't get name dibs.

[Master] He was burned at the Stake

[Spring] I had seen the part about crawling around for a year after his burning

[Carissa] That was a nice touch

[Master] exactly

[Master] that is why he was a Saint

[Spring] so maybe that was a redemption?

[Spring] baron Ulgin was kind of clear to me about how necromancy is a perversion of his faith and into an extension of it

[Master] yes

[Spring] ok I feel better now

[Master] Also the note on 15-5-347 SKR - Baron Ulgin arrives from Blackwater to reconsecrate Skull Church for Kiputytto without prior invitation by Lord Charles Witherbane IV

[Spring] hmmm

[Spring] on his own initiative

[Spring] well it looks like he waited for 2 years for Charlie to do something

[Carissa] Also noting he came from Blackwater. Maybe now that he's retired, Ilero can have a chat with him

[Master] Did the two of you want to explore anything in particular? interact with anyone in particular?

[Master] there is the mining expedition with Skarp, Tiberius, Kenna, and ......

[Spring] thinking

[Master] I am here to answer any and most of your questions

[Master] to help you understand how we are moving forward

[Carissa] Mining them plus the two NPCs I'm thinking

[Carissa] Not that they're there for anything but chatter. Can't really fight

[Carissa] OH! Johan in Mining, too.

[Master] grins

TMO has joined the game on Fri Oct 30 19:46:33 EDT 2020

TMO is receiving the map Church Ground Floor...

TMO has received the map Church Ground Floor.

[Master] you do NOT have to do encounters at this point

[Carissa] Eh but no harm being prepared

[TMO] sry for lateness

[Master] and Lara might be in later this evening so you can switch to the Goblin spotlight too

[Carissa] We took a point off your grade, TMO. Tardiness is not tolerated.

[Spring] hi TMO!

[TMO] dang. down to 103 now, after extra credit. :(

[Carissa] (Also hi)

[Carissa] LOL

[TMO] Hi Spring! Hi Carissa! Hi Bob!

[Spring] hahahaha

[Spring] ok I need to eat brb

[Spring] I am away from the keyboard.

[Master] grins

[Master] TMO did you like that listing of the Brotherhood?

[TMO] yes. I presume Elmond and Toth are the ones the group met in the past?

[TMO] I was not part of that

[Master] Yes they are the ones that healed the group from a Swamp Sickness and then sent them to deal with a new necromancer at Skull Church

[Master] 10-3-338 SKR - The Necromancer Brip the Dangerous is defeated by the Necromancer Red Cloak. Red Cloak makes a pact to defend the goblins living below the church if they provide scouts for his direction. Red Cloak uses his small goblin army to capture several merchant caravans along Farmers Turn over the next year, using the bodies to create an army of undead; drawing the attention of the Order of Brotherhood.

[Spring] I am back at the keyboard.

[TMO] Dude - I need to introduce you to the random name generators I use...

[TMO] "Brip"?

[Spring] Brip is a great name

[Master] grins

[Spring] although it would be better for an alien shaped like broccoli

[Spring] but still. I like it

[TMO] :)

[Spring] you don't encounter that many single syllable fictitious names

[Carissa] Sounds like someone tried to say their name then burped

[Spring] maybe it's short for Bripillandriman

[Carissa] That's.... better, actually.

[Master] so there are conversations to have

[Master] plans to make

[Master] questions to ask

[Spring] we have to decide where to put the casino

[Master] chuckles

[Carissa] Are we adding a racetrack to it?

[Spring] gosh I hope so

[Carissa] lol

[Spring] particularly for dogs

[Master] horse racing

[Spring] that too

[Carissa] Dirt track so we can change what we're racing each season!

[Spring] although we are in a magical realm so we can race all sorts of things

[Carissa] Horse, dogs, people, goblins. Whatever

[Carissa] Oooh pig griffon racing! That'll be better than just plain pig racing.

[Spring] magical contraptions

[Master] Arena Racing

[Spring] I dunno, how fast can an arena move?

[Master] every goblin gets a knife and sandals, make it around the track two laps and win

[Carissa] 0.5 cm a year is the fastest I've heard

[Master] laughs Carissa

[Spring] there ya go

[Spring] although candlestick park might have beat that in the 90s

[Carissa] Just don't put the finish line too far or it'll fall apart before it makes it

[Spring] or was that ... 89?

[Spring] that big earthquake

[Master] NICE Spring

[Spring] I just remember because I was watching the ballgame

[TMO] I heard about it after

[Spring] ok I am sure I don't like lime-a-rita

[Spring] changing to another drink ...

[TMO] lime-a-vodka

[Spring] pity. I love both lime and margarita so I dunno why this isn't working

[TMO] because it's nasty?

[TMO] ;)

[Spring] oh my word, these animals1

[Spring] I dared have a salami sandwich

[TMO] living life on the wild side

[Spring] my animals are all united in a passionate love of salami

[Spring] I gave each one bite, because I知 not a complete monster

[Spring] but the harassment!

[Spring] so there are conversations to have

[Master] listening

[Spring] although I think we have all the plans we need for the moment maybe?

[Spring] I dunno. do we need to send a peace offering with the party to the goblins?

[Spring] a turkey maybe?

[TMO] while listening is useful, it does not help make a conversation.

[Spring] since we know they like them?

[Spring] oh here's a good one. do I or do I not get my way in socializing the future undiscovered-yet mine?

[Master] Your key problem is you would like to have Emerald to deal with the Goblins and to have Skarp to work with the mines

[Spring] Skarp has no mining skills. that makes it a huge problem

[Master] but Skarp has no actual direct skills with mines while Emerald does have skills for Goblins

[Spring] why do I want him to do it? am I just racist?

[TMO] :) maybe

[Spring] I mean, I been working on that

[Master] grins

[Spring] do we need to do the goblin peace party first and then ask for one of their experts to go on the mining expedition?

[Master] it is part of the dwarves must like rocks so a bowl of rocks for breakfast

[Spring] oh like Tiffress was saying

[Master] you have a gnome to help

[Carissa] I thought he had some inate Dwarf skill?

[Spring] pretend I spelled correctly

[Carissa] One of the detect something somethings?

[Spring] like I have a white people skill for choosing cheese?

[Master] once you are underground yes but not to just find a good place to start a mine

[Carissa] ...which the gnome needs added to her at some point when I remember

[Carissa] Ahhhh

[Spring] despite the fact I know nothing about cheese at all?

[Carissa] All cheese is good cheese

[Spring] yeah but some are more suited to an occasion than others

[Spring] don't be trying to quesadilla feta

[Spring] so I sort of get it

[Spring] sometimes stereotypes for a reason

[Carissa] If you want to Greekify it... although Coijta is more appropriate. But anyways.

[Spring] aha there's some of that cheese knowledge I don't have

[Carissa] Mexican cheeses ftw

[Spring] dunno even what coijta is

[TMO] might as well be speaking Greek to me

[Carissa] lol

[Master] lol

[TMO] I like cheese. I don稚' care to know much of anything about it

[Carissa] Cojita is Mexican. Similar to feta, but not quite the same. Great on many things as all cheeses are.

[Master] brb grabbing snack then back to have whichever NPC you need to interact with

[Master] I am away from the keyboard.

[Spring] I知 drawing a blank as to interacting with any NPCs

[Carissa] Oh shoot that may or may not be me

[Carissa] Yeah I dunno. Just... "Hey guys! Let's go find a mine today!"

[Spring] well we already recruited professor P to come on the expedition

[Spring] who by the way is my ultimate favorite

[Carissa] Woohoo!

[Spring] I wanna be her when I grow up

[TMO] lol

[Spring] IF I grow up

[Spring] which I may not

[Carissa] I think I do too which is why she is who she is

[TMO] why bother? I haven't yet

[Carissa] lol can be overrated

[Spring] the cat is disgusted I have a lap full of dog

[Spring] the new dog has changed the dynamics around here wildly

[Spring] Sophie gets to be "the good one"

[Spring] I知 having to teach them both how to play. I think they both were solo dogs

[Carissa] But they are still getting along?

[Spring] yes, happily

[Carissa] Good!

[Spring] although he did try to romance her uninvited this evening

[Master] I am back at the keyboard.

[Spring] she ... defended her space

[Carissa] lol as she should

[Spring] she's spayed, but he doesn't get his surgery until the 18th

[Master] smiles


[Master] Yes Carissa is about to take center stage

[Carissa] Uh oh...

[Master] as Snee and Brer will question them

[Master] along with Thistle

[Master] and you also have Pete and Ulgin to ask questions of

[Carissa] Thistle is social distancing from Brer right now

[Spring] hehehehe

[TMO] lol

[Master] Kenna has questions for Professor P and 'the gnome"

TMO dons his hood and armor

[Master] as you are about to go out into the wilderness as a group

[Spring] Kai is hecking concerned I知 singing

[Carissa] My cats have stopped questioning my singing

[Carissa] Now it's more, "Can you stop already so we can eat??"

[Spring] Emmy and Sophie know it's okay for me to sing

[Carissa] lol

[Spring] but he's the new guy

[Carissa] True. Not even a week yet, right?

[Spring] right, Sunday

[Spring] ok so Kenna has questions?

[Spring] do I know what questions she's got?

[Carissa] Apparently

[Master] Snee is sending Kenna out with Skarp etc. to go search for a mine

[Brer Necholas (TMO)] (I sure don't know)

[Master] grins as Snee is now telling her former superior to do...

[Spring] asking

[Spring] requesting

[Spring] and attempting to entice her into it

[Brer Necholas (TMO)] (*commanding)

[Master] so Snee and Kenna stage center and ....

[Master] CLAP

[Spring] yeah no, Snee doesn't want to get the switch

[Master] Quiet on the set

[Master] and GO

[Carissa] Lights on! Lights off!

[Snezana (Spring)] so, Kenna ....

Brer Necholas (TMO) checks his program to read the scene description.

[Snezana (Spring)] there's an expedition into the northern wastes to look for a good site for a mine

[Snezana (Spring)] I知 also sending professor P to survey the plants and animals of the region for suitable crops and livestock

Thistle (Carissa) points to Brer's program and whispers, "It says right here you're supposed to answer ALL my questions."

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] oh! that sounds incredibly fascinating!

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I wish I didn稚 have to mind the hospital. I would very much like to go

Brer Necholas (TMO) whispers back, "I have."

[Thistle (Carissa) (to Master only)] How many proficiencies max can each have? Wonder if I need to add one or two more

[Snezana (Spring)] I would very much like for you to go

[Snezana (Spring)] the others cannot mind the hospital?

[Master (to Carissa only)] each gets at least 5 slots worth

[Snezana (Spring)] (do we even have others?)

[Master] yes

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] well ....

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) obviously conflicted

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] it is true that we have no severe cases right now

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] just the usual childbearing, rashes, cuts, and burns

[Thistle (Carissa) (to Master only)] Thanks

[Master (to Carissa only)] you could speak up and say Mara can handle that

[Thistle (Carissa)] Isn't that what Mara does?

Snezana gestures at Thistle

[Snezana (Spring)] so, it's settled then

[Snezana (Spring)] you'll pack your spare knickers?

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) frowns at Snee

[Thistle (Carissa)] Yeah! We might run into another naked lady so we should bring extra clothes!!

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] one day YOU'LL wish you had spare knickers

[Snezana (Spring)] that day already came

[Snezana (Spring)] ok that's settled then, what else?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] how long will we be gone

[Thistle (Carissa)] I wanna go with the goblins

[Snezana (Spring)] no idea. pack more knickers

[Snezana (Spring)] Thistle, that sounds dangerous

[Thistle (Carissa)] Goblins?

[Snezana (Spring)] I think you gotta take it up with Bran

[Thistle (Carissa)] You'd rather me run around in the wilderness where I can get lost with no wolf to find me?

[Snezana (Spring)] being as your her WARD and all

[Thistle (Carissa)] Said someone else!

[Snezana (Spring)] hm

[Snezana (Spring)] so you're implying you're gonna do it with or without permission?

[Snezana (Spring)] do you realize that if you cark it, not only will I be sad, but I値l be in a butt ton of trouble, right?

[Thistle (Carissa)] Cark? What's a cark?

Snezana (Spring) makes the throat slitting gesture

[Thistle (Carissa)] Ooooohhhhh

[Thistle (Carissa)] Well I can't die until Shi gets back so you're stuck with me for a while still

[Thistle (Carissa)] 'Cause it's REALLY hard to yell at someone when you're a ghostie.

[Snezana (Spring)] what, did she cast some kind of not-die spell on you?

Snezana (Spring) obviously trying to work out the logic of that

[Thistle (Carissa)] No. My need to yell at her will keep me alive! It's what keeps Gramma going! She always said each time I ended up back home that she was waiting to yell at me.

[Thistle (Carissa)] So I told her I'd keep running away to make sure she kept living long

[Snezana (Spring)] I think you may be describing coincidence

[Snezana (Spring)] but whatever

[Snezana (Spring)] I知 a priest with powerful priest friends

Thistle (Carissa) shrugs

[Snezana (Spring)] so if you get me in trouble, I値l make sure you suffer even if you die

Snezana (Spring) glares

[Thistle (Carissa)] So am I! There's you and Shi and Kenna andddddd uhhhh probably others

[Thistle (Carissa)] Wait no. I'm not a priest. I just know priests.

[Snezana (Spring)] mmm hmmm

[Snezana (Spring)] if you die, you will WISH you could get away with just a switch

[Thistle (Carissa)] Deal. But if I'm gonna die, I'll make you suffer first since you'll make me suffer. Ummm or something.

[Snezana (Spring)] yeah ok, I値l be afraid

Snezana (Spring) rolling eyes

Thistle (Carissa) grins

[Snezana (Spring)] just don't die

[Snezana (Spring)] may Branwyn forgive me

[Thistle (Carissa)] I mean I have to one day, but I don't plan to anytime soon!

[Snezana (Spring)] just don't do it on my expedition!

[Snezana (Spring)] ok what else we got?

[Thistle (Carissa)] Oooh well maybe you should be specific from the start...

[Thistle (Carissa)] I mean then again if I end up undead Brer will kill me so it's okay!

[Snezana (Spring)] lord aclim save me

[Snezana (Spring)] so we are doing two concurrent expeditions

[Thistle (Carissa)] What are they gonna do? Judge people while we run off? 'Cause they're good at that.

[Thistle (Carissa)] See? Sundown is judging the professor as I speak!

[Sundown (Master)] Exactly

[Snezana (Spring)] there ya go

[Sundown (Master)] Well not quite

[Sundown (Master)] I am Judging you not the professor

[Sundown (Master)] She has not done anything yet

[Thistle (Carissa)] Eh, get in line.

[Sundown (Master)] but you have

[Snezana (Spring)] I thought you already judged thistle

[Snezana (Spring)] you have to do it again?

[Sundown (Master)] She is being weighed

Snezana (Spring) looks her up and down

[Thistle (Carissa)] Don't ask a girl her weight! That's rude.

[Snezana (Spring)] 92 pounds, what next?

[Sundown (Master)] Her efforts are changing

[Thistle (Carissa)] Shur told me not to take any of that.

[Sundown (Master)] This Shur you speak of? is she like the fictitious Shi?

[Snezana (Spring)] oh neither is fictitious

[Snezana (Spring)] I know them

[Thistle (Carissa)] Uhh, you mean real like Shi? Yes?

[Thistle (Carissa)] But Shur isn't an elf if that's what you mean

[Thistle (Carissa)] But she DOES have a nice right hook!

[Sundown (Master)] No one outside of your circle has admitted to knowing them

[Sundown (Master)] when we were at Dragon Fen Manor I asked the local

[Thistle (Carissa)] AND she's really good at dancing!

[Sundown (Master)] they had not met

[Sundown (Master)] They had heard of both

[Thistle (Carissa)] Just about Shi? Well Shi doesn't wanna be known. Duh.

[Sundown (Master)] but no one had met them

[Thistle (Carissa)] You ever met an elf that DID want to be known? Because I haven't and I've met THREE now!

[Sundown (Master)] I have not seen an Elf

[Thistle (Carissa)] saw Finny. He was an elf. Remember? You were mean to him?

[Sundown (Master)] He is not Shi nor Shur

[Thistle (Carissa)] But he is an elf you saw.

[Thistle (Carissa)] And Shur is human. Just go ask Ilero.

[Sundown (Master)] I know Elves exist

[Thistle (Carissa)] Duh. Because you saw Finny. Who is an elf.

[Sundown (Master)] So yes Elves exist, that does not mean that Shi exists

[Sundown (Master)] perhaps she does in your mind

[Thistle (Carissa)] And Snee's mind. And Kenna's mind. And the wolves' minds. And Skarp's mind.

[Thistle (Carissa)] OOOH you should ask Skarp. He's BEST FRIENDS with Shi!

[Sundown (Master)] I see you do always deflect to those who are not here

[Sundown (Master)] rather than one who can actually support you here and now

[Thistle (Carissa)] Um, two of them are?

[Thistle (Carissa)] You got marbles for brain or something?

Sundown (Master) looks at Snee

[Sundown (Master)] Are you supporting her tales?

[Thistle (Carissa)] Probably weighs you down...

[Thistle (Carissa)] OH!

[Thistle (Carissa)] TIBERIUS! WHERE ARE YOU?

[Snezana (Spring)] I have met them also

[Snezana (Spring)] I don't need to support anyone's tales

[Snezana (Spring)] (sorry, had to clean up a cat pee situation)

[Thistle (Carissa)] Tiberius and Kel are BEST FRIENDS, too! He's met them!

[Master] no response from Tiberius

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) nodding

[Thistle (Carissa)] (lol typical)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] they are just people who are not here currently. I do not know why that makes them fiction

[Thistle (Carissa)] Marble brains only believes things he sees EXCEPT when it comes to his god apparently.

[Master] I prefer to let my eyes tell me the truth

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] oh well. waste of breath arguing

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] we need to pack

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] and get provisions from the kitchen

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] and pantry and root cellar

[Thistle (Carissa)] You're right. I have better things to do with my time.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] sensible girl

[Thistle (Carissa)] I'm going to go pick flowers over there!

[Potoma (Carissa)] Do NOT touch anything you don't know, young miss!!

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) doing the eyeroll now

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] professor!

[Potoma (Carissa)] Those right there will swell your fingers right up! Do you want that?

[Thistle (Carissa)] Fine. I'm gonna go set fire to Sundown's stuff

Thistle (Carissa) mutters and walks away

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I am joining your party! it will be wonderful to find all the helpful and harmful growing things as we go

Sundown (Master) looks at Snee

[Potoma (Carissa)] Well she is a handful...

[Potoma (Carissa)] Ah!

[Potoma (Carissa)] You must be Kenna was it?

[Sundown (Master)] She is a very normal youth

[Potoma (Carissa)] Hmm, let me see...

Potoma (Carissa) looks over Kenna

[Sundown (Master)] I am glad that you are here for her

[Potoma (Carissa)] Oh ho! What's that in your pack there?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I am indeed Auntie Kenna. I run the hospital church

[Potoma (Carissa)] What a wonderful collection of herbs!

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] we are changing the art of healing by using knowledge and reason instead of ... well I致e heard "theories"

[Potoma (Carissa)] You may call me Professor Potoma, or just Professor, Auntie. I think I'm already glad to meet you!

[Potoma (Carissa)] Oh? Do go on.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I am definitely glad to meet you

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] well just earlier today we were discussing well baby visits

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I ask all the villagers to bring their babies by the hospital regularly so that I can examine them for ... wellness

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] we catch anything untoward very early

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] we talk with the parents about nutrition

Potoma (Carissa) nods, "Yes yes. So many things show signs others miss!"

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] if we wait for a serious illness, we wait too late!

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] that is but an example

[Potoma (Carissa)] Like how one should simply not pick the flowers rather than find out later it was a mistake!

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] yes, better to keep a journal of observed flowers and then research them

[Potoma (Carissa)] What sort of nutritional issues do you discuss? I wonder if you can meet it all nicely with your set-up here.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] fruits and vegetables, mainly

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] too many try to subsist on meat and bread

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] but that will not do at all. we need fruits and vegetables as well

[Potoma (Carissa)] Yes yes and the correct ones!

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] to be sure

[Potoma (Carissa)] You see this plant here? I was showing it to the others earlier

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] every year some people get into trouble with mushrooms

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I do see

[Potoma (Carissa)] The flowers are a favorite of sailors! Seems to keep the gums from bleeding after a long journey!

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) claps hands in glee

[Potoma (Carissa)] Much better than a potato of diets, yes? You need nutrition!

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] indeed!

Potoma (Carissa) tsks

[Potoma (Carissa)] Mushrooms are not for the careless. So many look like so many that should not be eaten.

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) sighs

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] so true

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] even the very careful can get it wrong

[Potoma (Carissa)] Yes yes! I would trust a Dwarf, perhaps, a gnome, but humans just simply don't have the eye for mushrooms.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I wonder if cultivation is a good idea. then you can be sure the ones you grow are the right ones

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] instead of hoping to just fine the right ones

[Potoma (Carissa)] Hmm, it could be possible in the right environment, but this is certainly not it.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] well not above ground, to be sure

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] but if the goblins move out ....

[Potoma (Carissa)] Ohh! I've heard tale of their network of caverns! That would open up a such possibilities!

[Potoma (Carissa)] Although I have never found out why goblins moved in over here.

[Potoma (Carissa)] They are not my expertise, however.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] nor mine

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I had just assumed that they moved in while it was unattended

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] due to opportunity

[Potoma (Carissa)] We may have to find out. Perhaps there's something special about where they've set up?

[Potoma (Carissa)] Oh but I do wish my old collegue was around. He would know.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] he would? a goblin expert?

[Potoma (Carissa)] Once upon a day. With his age, I doubt he could go on an expedition.

[Potoma (Carissa)] anymore.

[Potoma (Carissa)] Who knows what he's up to now.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (I only just realized we are still at the cathedral. earlier I was nattering on about kitchens and pantries)

[Potoma (Carissa)] (lol oh well)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (hahaha)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] well we shall do the best we can

[Potoma (Carissa)] (and I have no idea if a goblin expert can be made, but there's a link if needed)

Potoma (Carissa) claps hands, "Well then! I hear we'll be leaving soon?

[Master] It is called Sage Knowledge and you then pick what particular knowledge you have

[Potoma (Carissa)] I've packed extra notebooks, extra pants, and another hat!

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (oh, Snee has Sage Knowledge but hasn't picked yet)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (not that goblin expert fist the story just now)

[Potoma (Carissa)] (we have plenty of NPC spots open if we want him to be a different character? or we can add it to Potoma)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (but that's fun to think about)

[Potoma (Carissa)] (If TMO doesn't want to be left out and wants someone for the journey.... :) )

[Master] I think not for Potoma it would be more focused towards plants and animals rather than humanoids

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) looks significantly at TMO

[Potoma (Carissa)] (same hence wanting it to be someone else when she talked)

[Brer Necholas (TMO)] (I certainly can do whatever y'all want me to)

[Potoma (Carissa)] (you wanna be a goblin expert?)

[Brer Necholas (TMO)] (I thought I already was. ;) )

[Potoma (Carissa)] (lol you wanna be another one?)

[Brer Necholas (TMO)] (aged and elderly, or young and brash?)

[Master] Who would be and why?

[Potoma (Carissa)] (fair IF bob says yes; collegue of Potoma she asked for help after hearing about goblins?)

[Master] a local human who moved in as part of Dragon Fen building? or a gnome?

[Brer Necholas (TMO)] (did the bugbear slavers have goblins working for them?)

[Potoma (Carissa)] (I feel like I'm not spelling collegue right...)

[Brer Necholas (TMO)] (colleague)

[Potoma (Carissa)] (yes by blackmail)

[Potoma (Carissa)] (The A! That's what it is, thanks)

[Master] no they (the Bugbears) sold Indigo to Goblins in the Valoris Wood/Craniate Wastes

[Potoma (Carissa)] (Oh I'm thinking of the OTHER bugbears)

[Brer Necholas (TMO)] (ah, so goblins had their own slaves? so, former goblin slave)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (sounds legit to me)

[Master] and you follow that logic to .......

[Brer Necholas (TMO)] (to Disneyland?)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (Haelin?)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (Hamelin?)

[Potoma (Carissa)] (The Wizard?)

[TMO] k, so former slave explains *why( the person knows about goblins

[Master] I am just letting you speculate

[TMO] so what would happen then?

[TMO] escaped, or rescued?

[Master] a human?

[Carissa] just cause you let us doesn't me we are :)

[Master] could be either that made it free from one of the Goblin tribes in the Craniate Wastes

[TMO] if human, not a strong one. tough, to have survived, but not strong enough to be a threat to the goblins

[Master] and then made it to Dragon Fen

[TMO] could be another gnome

[Master] yes

[TMO] gnome actually might make more sense, they came home after getting away

[TMO] *and* how they know about this party

[TMO] they know and/or are related to Tiffress

[Carissa] Sure!

[Spring] I like it

[Spring] so apropos nothing

[Spring] all my Utah friends got an emergency alert on their cellphones

[Spring] that the covid is out of control and they need to do their damn masks already

[Spring] that is all

[Master] sigh

[Master] so telling them the truth

[Spring] that you need your phone to scream at you for this

[Spring] eyeroll

[Carissa] Saw the from a Utah friend

[Spring] ok now that is all

[Carissa] I have critiques still about their handling including that message, but that's for another time

[Carissa] (is TMO setting up? is that what we're waiting on?)

[Spring] I think so

[Master] He can wing it as needed

[Carissa] just making sure we're not twiddling our thumbs without knowing why :)

[TMO] yeah, I'm reading about gnomes, except for a brief detour to check our current COVID level

[Spring] I知 busy looking at cats and dogs affording nobody privacy nor dignity in the bathroom

[Master] brb refilling water.... looks at Carissa

[Spring] it's hilarious

[Master] I am away from the keyboard.

[Carissa] Pfft I'm almost out of my third big bottle

[TMO] k, gnome thief. what level?

[Carissa] Okay back to rant, their alert stills allows gatherings of up to 10? And mask only in certain areas? No. Masks EVERYWHERE. Ugh

[TMO] and need to get stats too

[Carissa] They're all level 1

[Carissa] Anyways. No one is allowed into NY except Hawaii now without a quarantine pretty much so... y'all be careful out there.

[TMO] level 11? ok

[Carissa] lol sure!

[Carissa] I mean Bob isn't here to correct it so....

[Master] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] 1

[Spring] hehehe

[Master] you just double typed that

[Carissa] ah so close

[TMO] no, you half typed it

[TMO] 12, 9, 11, 13, 6, 15

[Carissa] ...TMO is doing more for his character than I have for mine... was I supposed to roll stats? They're just.. there. Then again his has a class.

[Master] no need to actually roll, grins just create on the fly with your ideas

[TMO] *shrug*

[Carissa] Oh good. He's just trying to do extra credit to earn back that grade

[Master] go for it putting a new gnome on there

[TMO] guilty

[Master] upper left side of the map

[Master (to GM only)] For TMO moved 11'02".

[TMO] what stat bonuses/penalties do gnomes get?

[Master] nothing significant

[Carissa] Just goblin knowledge ;)

[Spring] dammit, I just fell for a Facebook ad

[Carissa] Go on...

[Spring] I need the Houses& Humans t-shirt


[Carissa] Oooh one of the t-shirt ads. They almost get me with those.

[Spring] I have fallen prey to their shoe ads before

[Carissa] lol I see why you fell for it

[Spring] and maybe a couple other things

[Carissa] Same. Wish my ad blocker, you know, blocked ads better

[Master] So you have a group to go off in search of mines

[Master] let us see them off

[Master] Gov'nr?

[Carissa] Ah see? I was twiddling again thinking we were about to be introduced to another gnome

[Spring] I am back at the keyboard.

[Snezana (Spring)] bye y疝l

[Snezana (Spring)] have fun storming the castle!

[Snezana (Spring)] or not

[TMO] (sorry, Ghietjer is about ready, just gotta do his thief skills)

[Master] and Ghietjer is staying to negotiate with Goblins so the mining crew can survive without him

[Carissa] lol and here initially I was trying to give TMO someone to go mining since I think Brer is doing goblins? Brer never said :)

[TMO] (you wanted a goblin expert to go mining?)

[Master] Kenna looks to be the senior person

[TMO] (I mean, whichever is fine. I can skip this bit to be ready to go with)

[Master] and leading the way out into the badlands

[TMO] (90 pts to spend on thief skills, right)

[Carissa] (no I wasn't thinking; you just don't have someone on the mining crew was all)

[Master] yes to TMO

[Master] and there is a decent group heading out

[Master] Tiberius and Kenna are the two key people who are part of the main group who are here now, Skarp a round behind

[Spring] I am back at the keyboard.

[Carissa] (yes but with three of us it leaves only two of us actually with something to do :) )

[Master] plus the new gnome and professor

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) tightens up the pack straps

[Master] TMO can play with himself......

[Carissa] (unless TMO wants to be Tiffress)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (a\hahahahaha)

[Carissa] (I'm choosing to ignore that)

[TMO] (me too)

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] It is good to have you on the road again Kenna

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] how long has it been?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] it is good to get on the road again

Lord Tiberius (Master) pulls out a staff

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] swishes it around

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] uhm, three years?

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] I used to get bored too, stuck in the castle all the time

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] I would look for an adventure

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] must be like that at the hospital too

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I have been too busy to be bored, but even so, it is good to get out again

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] Do you think these new people will survive?

Lord Tiberius (Master) looks over them, and over their heads literally

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] we are here

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] so surely they will

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] Do we have to bring them all back to Snee?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] uhm

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] I wish Indigo was here he would know

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] is there someone you'd like us to ask to stay behind?

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] I do not like telling people they cannot do something

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] too many people told me what to do

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] I want them to do what they want

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] But you are here and I do not want you to feel you need to save everyone

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] I am happy to get out and be in the open after all that underground crypts

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I am sure we will all be fine

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] (after heading East from the church for an hour or two)

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] So tell me, looking at the group of new people, while Skarp is watching our flank what do you think is the most important thing to check on?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] hard to say

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] for me, the survey of useful flora and fauna is paramount

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] but finding a mine site could change the face of the whole region

Lord Tiberius (Master) looks at the gnome

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] Can you make Kenna happy?

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] (couldn't remember who she was to find her...)

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] Do I look like I know flora and fauna, heavy-feet?

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] *block foot

[Potoma (Carissa)] (Spring how do I get the list back up? Bob'll have to end turn for me)

[Master] INIT: 19 GOING: Kenna Westfoot

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] which list?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] if it's the left one, hit the 1

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] toolbar is 2

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (I haven't forgotten it's my turn)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (I知 looking for some way o stop everybody)

[Potoma (Carissa)] (nope not those)

[Potoma (Carissa)] (the initiative turns list; combat list)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (my little red die is at the end of my toolbar, so that's all I have)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] Kenna Westfoot casts a spell against : Windborne: I summon a column of air which allows me to fly or glide.

[Master] could be in preferences Carissa

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) rises up in the air and intones "please everyone stop fighting!"

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (this is supposed to be shock and awe)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (I think in Edit Preferences you want "dock combat tracker"

[Potoma (Carissa)] ('s already selected)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] with an x next to "both"?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] you have the option of toolbar or map or both

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I致e got both

[Master] and they all flee back into the hole in the side of the ravine

[Master] leaving the dead one behind

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] well, I sort of wanted to talk with them

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] but plainly this cave is inhabited

[Potoma (Carissa)] (yup; hmm weird...)

[Master (to Carissa only)] Tiff is certain this is a place where something valuable could be found

[Potoma (Carissa)] Mmm, might be because it's worth inhabiting. I'm certain this is a good place to dig.

[Potoma (Carissa)] ....

[Master (to Carissa only)] the water from a flood created this ravine revealing the beginnings of a vein

[Potoma (Carissa)] (wait that's tiff)

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] Mmm, might be because it's worth inhabiting. I'm certain this is a good place to dig.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] plainly

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] See there? Flood waters made the ravine. Shows the beginnings of a vein there.

[Master (to Carissa only)] Goblins take the easy way not starting new mines

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] You don't expect goblins to make their own mine, do ya? Nah, they'll find what nature gives them. They ain't as good as gnomes.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] we should clearly mark this location and maybe we should send the goblin delegation here to negotiate as well

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] Either that or more swords.

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] Maybe a mage who can actually fireball.

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) shrugs

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] whether it seems like goblins are people or not, even if we figure them for animals, when we take an animal's habitat, we cause more problems later

Lord Tiberius (Master) looks at Johan

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] Was that about us?

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] Do we need more swords?

Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa) shrugs, "You asked me to find a mine. I found you one. How you deal with it is up to you all."

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] Obviously there cannot be too many fireballs

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] Look little gnome lady

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] We do not take kindly to such aspersions

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] If you want me to show you fire

Johan the Apprentice (Master) cantrips flame on the end of Tiff's sleeve

Johan the Apprentice (Master) lets it die

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] Perhaps that'd have been better use on the goblins?

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] Just scare 'em a little. Don't you know anything about illusions?

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] Perhaps your wit would be better spent focusing on providing the service you were brought here for

Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa) brushes sleeve, mildly

Johan the Apprentice (Master) gestures to the opening

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] You can go first

Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa) smiles, "Last I heard, you weren't the one leading this expedition. Auntie Kenna?"

Johan the Apprentice (Master) smiles and looks at Kenna

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] You tell us what you want us to do.

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) smiles

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I did say already, but again, let us make note of this location and move on

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] we'll send the goblin delegation to talk to these folks

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] the goblins living here might appreciate assistance to extract their minerals. could be a winning solution

[Master] Lord Tiberius XP award: 23. Next level in 71285.

[Master] Johan the Apprentice XP award: 23. Next level in 15635.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] but let us continue to survey the geologicals, flora, and fauna

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] As you say.

Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa) glances at Johan and continues walking

[Master] Tiffress Wildwander XP award: 500. Next level in 0.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I neglected to ask who among you can write. I cannot

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] Of course I can

Potoma (Carissa) looks up from writing in her notebook, "Hmm?"

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] But I might say I do not agree Aunt Kenna about letting the Goblins simply stay here

[Potoma (Carissa)] (duh that'd make since)

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] are we not trying to establish a way to capture such wealth for the Protectorate?

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] The ground ain't moving. Where else are they going to go while we continue on?

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] We'll be back soon enough.

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] rather than letting such .... creatures take it

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] They attacked us just for coming close

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] It must have some value

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] It does. I just said that. Weren't you listening?

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] Do all gnomes choose to let poor Goblins take such riches away under their noses

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] I chose not to be hasty enough to die like my sister.

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] How did she die?

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] You go in without a plan, you'll end up like her.

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] Vengeance for a family member is a worthwhile quest

Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa) frowns, "Feel free to ask any of your friends here."

Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa) shakes head, "I'm not looking for vengeance. I'm looking to make her sacrifice worthwhile. There's a place to start a mine. Do what you will with it."

Lord Tiberius (Master) looks around,

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] Snezana told me she was killed by giant spider bite

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] Who?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] in the caverns under the cathedral

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] Siffress

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] Tiffress sister

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] Who was she?

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] I do not remember

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] OH

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] from the guild?

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] is that right?

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] Ilero's scouts?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] perhaps. I was not there

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] It was a hard trip, we lost several

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] She was in his guild, yes.

[Lord Tiberius (Master)] DO you think it was a lack of training?

Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa) shrugs, "I wasn't there. What's training have to do with it?"

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] I do not know enough about the situation to tell

Lord Tiberius (Master) shrugs

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] shall we continue up this ravine?

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] Mark this spot and we'll come back to it.

Johan the Apprentice (Master) shakes his head

[Spring] ok I知 fizzling out

[Tiffress Wildwander (Carissa)] (same)

[Spring] fun times, y'all!

[Carissa] lie that's some big hint but it's going WHOOSH over my head

[Carissa] or just RP. I dunno

[Spring] have a good night!

[Master] If you are good with this

[Master] we will pause

[Master] I marked it on the timeline

[Spring] k

[TMO] looks like y'all had fun!

[Master] next week we start with the goblins

[Carissa] yeah pause then we can always rethink if we should leave or enter there

[Master] Brer and the group

[Master] one hint for you Carissa, you get one check every week to find a mine

[Spring] gnite

Spring has left the game on Fri Oct 30 22:45:30 EDT 2020

[Carissa] Right, but I think I'm missing the purpose

[Carissa] I thought we were just looking for a spot. I wasn't thinking this crew was going INTO mines

[Master] that is up to you

[Carissa] But if part of mining expedition is going into them, then maybe we should

[Carissa] I just don't know how important that is or is not

[Master] I was also glazing over encounters

[Master] you will have some

[Master] but go rest

[Master] and we will work on things on the site over the week

[Carissa] Yeah yeah and drink water blah blah ;)

[Master] grins

[Master] Thank you

[Carissa] Fair warning, I'll probably bug you this weekend

[Master] good

[Carissa] Shi things so unrelated to all this

[Master] I am working tomorrow middle of the day

[Carissa] That's fine. you know I prefer texts

[Master] and Sunday Football from 1 to 4

[Carissa] Gross

[Master] and baking lots of cookies for Tuesday

[Carissa] For the poll workers?

[Master] I think 14 dozen?

[Master] yeap

[TMO] sounds fun

[Carissa] They frown upon baked goods up here right now

[Master] nods, I will make them and package them in snack bags of two each

[Carissa] Unless it's prepackaged, some places won't accept it right now

[Carissa] Hopefully the poll workers can take them and appreciate them

[Master] chuckles in August I had questions where the cookies ere

[Master] because I brought them every other time

[Carissa] Welp guess you have no choice

[Master] exactly

[Master] go to sleep

[Carissa] All righty then. Night!

[Master] have a great night too TMO

Carissa has left the game on Fri Oct 30 22:49:50 EDT 2020

[TMO] you as well

TMO has left the game on Fri Oct 30 22:50:01 EDT 2020
