Lisa has received the map New Residence second floor.

[Master] and hello

[Master] welcome back

[Lisa] Hello

[Lisa] We have no heads

[Master] no

[Master] every time I restart Klooge it loses both the icons and the description file

[Master] what I did was to give everyone an icon

[Master] that activated the sheets again

[Master] so that I could save them

[Master] I have a zip file

[Master] with all the sheets

[Master] so we have all the data I believe

[Lisa] makes it hard to find your name on the list

[Master] sadly yes

[Master] but I also eliminated many NPCs and maps that we will not use over the next couple of weeks

[Master] to free up some of those issues

[Lisa] and the print feature on the character sheet doesn't do what I want it to

[Lisa] will log out and back in on my laptop to take some screenshots

[Master] you need an icon just a sec

[Master] mo

[Master] wait

[Lisa] no I'm fine

[Lisa] looked at calendar and see we have a library appointment

[Lisa] forgot I was supposed to start that roleplay while you were gone

[Lisa] sorry

[Lisa] I immersed myself in Lords roleplay and didn't do much else

[Lisa] feels like we haven't played in eons

[Master] yes it does

[Master] and now you have an icon

[Master] for branwyn

[Master] I keep on tweaking things

[Master] there is a decade of changes to walk through

[Master] now I have the shield again here

[Master] now you can try the save for print for Branwyn

[Lisa] It works I guess, but it isn't readable.

[Master] the xml files

[Lisa] yes

[Master] that are just a lot of data dump sort of things

[Master] I am going to ask TMO if he can help with that

[Lisa] that would be nice

[Lisa] it is 100 degrees outside now

[Master] that could be a glitch

[Lisa] lol

[Lisa] are you fixing stuff?

[Master] sort of

[Master] but I am ready to roleplay and answer questions too

[Master] ready to start when you are

[Lisa] sorry missed your response

[Lisa] If you want to work on library visit since no one would want to go and get blown up by a book most likely

[Master] certainly

[Lisa] then when people sign in we can stop

[Lisa] let me get spells

[Lisa] okay this should be fun

[Lisa] can I blow up my unseen servant?

[Lisa] open book

[Lisa] kaboom!

[Lisa] unseen bits go flying

[Master] yes that is what it is for

[Illporn (Master)] Welcome back AMbassador

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (so I have 1 dispel magic scroll from guild too)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you for allowing me back.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I do apologize for the inconvenience last time.

[Illporn (Master)] As long as you follow the rules I am glad to have a visitor

[Branwyn (Lisa)] About the rules ...

Illporn (Master) raised eyebrow

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Well the books are written in a magical language, correct?

[Illporn (Master)] yes

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Which is why you need me at all

[Branwyn (Lisa)] So I must be able to copy from them or they are no use to anyone

[Illporn (Master)] actually the books are just happy sitting there, he says with a tight smile

[Illporn (Master)] it is you wanting to do things with them that makes you happy

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles "Are you sure about that? It was you who asked me to look at them. I came here with a geneaology question"

[Illporn (Master)] I admit that I am curiuos about what is in these books

[Illporn (Master)] however I would rather keep the books whole and safe

Illporn (Master) looking at you like, remember last time

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And of absolutely no use to anyone? A lovely book. Doesn't it have a pretty spine.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Hasn't been touched in 100 years.

[Illporn (Master)] I do not think that books get lonely do they?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Their sole purpose is to be used. Devoured even. If you want something pretty to look at you should work in an art gallery.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Not that they should not be given thei respect they are due

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I value them immensely but for the purpose they were made

[Illporn (Master)] I brought up one of the chained books for you

[Illporn (Master)] to go along with the other two books you did not open last time

[Illporn (Master)] well one of them you opened but did not get far

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Do you know why that one was chained? Were you the one who restrained the book?

[Illporn (Master)] I think it was the librarian two previous ones ago

[Branwyn (Lisa)] He left no instructions?

[Illporn (Master)] he was eaten by a hat

[Illporn (Master)] in the artifact room

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs

Branwyn (Lisa) coughs

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That is terrible

[Illporn (Master)] being a librarian is a hazardous job

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Was it a very large hat?

[Illporn (Master)] no it is a normal hat

[Illporn (Master)] but when you put it on it eats your head

[Illporn (Master)] most people prefer to have a head

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I know I do

[Branwyn (Lisa)] So what happened to this hat?

[Illporn (Master)] it is in a box

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I wonder if it stores the knowledge of all the heads it has eaten. It would be a very knowledgeable hat indeed

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (borg hat)

[Illporn (Master)] it is a very smelly and stained hat

Branwyn (Lisa) shudders

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Perhaps it should stay in its box

[Illporn (Master)] I am happy with that idea

[Michael] I love my job

[Lisa] that's the best part

[Michael] So how way your trip bob?

[Master] the shield lets you know it is me

[Master] I keep the same icon everywehre

[Michael] Thanks. And your probably right haha

[TMO] howdy folks

[Master] G+, twitter, facebook, instagram, etc etc etc

[TMO] am I going to need to download the latest Tabletop version?

[Master] how are you sir

[Master] you should

[TMO] doing alright. Sorry if I'm late. Had to arrange food for everyone

[Master] just in case

[TMO] is it the version in your dropbox linked from the Tabletop page on Dragonslayers?

[Master] yes

[TMO] version # isn't mentioned on the page

[Master] that auto updates with the latest version

[TMO] downloading

[Master] and on the Updates page it tells you what the current version we are using

[Master] for next Saturday

[Lisa] Hi tmo! :)

[Master] I will update that Thursday night

[TMO] hey Lisa!

[Master] normally will try to update on Wednesdays

[TMO] all of us having fun in Lords too?

[Lisa] insane

[TMO] excellent. I'm looking forward to 3D&D

[Master] ??

[TMO] 3D D&D

[Master] ahhh

[Master] yeah

[Master] the residence is looking really good

[TMO] shame on you for not keeping up with the random leaps my brain makes

[Master] well

[Master] I have the XML files for all the characters

[Master] that are updated as of the start of tonight

[TMO] the only Lords tidbit I'm willing to pass on is that I know 7 of the 8 Active characters.

[Master] I think we all do

[TMO] which means I'm still missing 1 *headdesk*

[Master] there is one mystery person from the early days that none of us know

[TMO] yah, this far in, we should have talked with everyone at least once.

[TMO] oh, I don't know the players

[TMO] just the characters

[Master] chuckles I think I know all the players except one

[Master] and I know all the characters

[Lisa] know them as in talked to them personally?

[TMO] the only players I stand a chance of identifying are the two of you and Alex.

[Master] interested in who you think I am

[Lisa] IC I mean

[Master] and Michael this is an email game we all participate in also

[Michael] Lords?

[Master] the game normally is 12-14 weeks long

[Michael] Ah. What is the goal?

[Master] but this season is so out of the ordinary

[TMO] it would be interesting to trade that info, but saying who I think is who would also be a big clue to who I'm playing.

[Lisa] I think I know that older person

[Master] they played in the All Stars Season I think

[Lisa] I have seen the style of gameplay in older seasons

[Master] and Michael this is season 22 of the game

[Master] the previous seasons there was a score card

[Michael] This is kind of actaully hilarious hearing about it. Do you not know who is who?

[TMO] only my 3rd game of it, actually. I'm a relative newb

[Lisa] No and to tell is to kind of ruin things

[Master] be the highest ranking estate that you are the lord of

[Lisa] though I am usually transparent

[Master] but all by email

[Michael] Is there a waiting list to join?

[Master] and run by a very fun guy in Bharain

[Master] we can recomend you for next season this happens

[Michael] I would appreciate that. I wont dissapoint anyone.

[Lisa] he runs the game when he feels like it - we have been waiting over a year since the last time

[Michael] Ah

[Michael] Whelp I gotta good Bharain because I cannot point that out on a map

[TMO] I've got all my stuff from prior seasons on Dropbox. I can move one of them to a public folder and share it with you if you want.

[Michael] *google

[Lisa] he wasn't sure he would run another one but he is liking this season

[Master] it is one of the Gulf States

[TMO] small country on the Persian Gulf next to Saudi Arabia

[TMO] I used to live a couple hours from it.

[TMO] never been, of course

[Master] I did not know that TMO

[Michael] Oh I see it. Thanks. I feel like I should know that stuff. At least I can point our vietnam and korea though. So I got that going for me which is nice. :)

[Lisa] :)

[Michael] Military TMO?

[TMO] my family lived in Saudi for 5 years when I was a teen.

[Michael] What was it like?

[Michael] That's amazing

[TMO] that's the most common reason, but nope. Dad worked for a company building an oil refinery for Shell

[Lisa] fun

[Michael] That in of itself is amazing. I see what those guys do.

[Lisa] my dad lived there for a year building hospitals

[Lisa] eons ago

[TMO] yes, very interesting. Got to do a lot of traveling because of it.

[TMO] miss that

[Lisa] he didn't take us

[Lisa] you are lucky

[Michael] All your schooling their? or did you do online? Man I need to interview you this is so cool

[Michael] *there

[TMO] Dad was a computer person. He worked in the computer center

[TMO] lol

[Lisa] ohhh - I was going to say they didn't have computers when you were a kid

[Lisa] :)

[Master] lol

[TMO] :P

[Michael] So why is Klooge working so much better?

[TMO] I'm not that old. But yes, Dad did get in on the ground floor. He didn't have a computer degree. Never finished college

[TMO] he just had years of experience

[Michael] Sometimes that is better then any degree

[TMO] especially back then

[TMO] they only had schools for foreigners up to the 9th grade. Didn't want foreign teenagers running ramant in their country

[TMO] after that, you had to go to a boarding school.

[TMO] company paid more of the tuition if we went to school in Europe. So I went to high school in Salzburg, Austria

[Michael] Like they actually shipped you away from the country to another country for boarding school?

[TMO] Yes. I came home over summer, and I think Christmas

[Michael] That's cool. But a little asinine on the part of Saudi Arabiaz

[Michael] *Arabia

[TMO] no. American teens are incredibly disruptive of a closed society. ;) Don't you watch tv?

[Michael] You know what. It is true that I have absolutely no idea what it would be like considering I have lived my entire life in the U.S. but I also know that if I ever disrupted society in another country they would beat me sensless to makle sure I didn't screw up in another country.

[Michael] And I don't watch TV :)

[Michael] It depresses me

[TMO] we did our annual vacation over the summer. Usually a week in a far east city, then hopping around the States visiting family, then back to Saudi through Europe. So I've been around the world 5 times.

[Master] watch Homeland

[Michael] Good show?

[Master] ask Lisa

[Master] and nice TMO

[TMO] yep. Even had 2 birthdays once. Crossed the International Date Line on my birthday

[Michael] You've done something many people wont so that is awesome TMO

[Michael] Haha

[TMO] Agreed, although I am also missing out on somethiing many Americans take for granted.

[Master] we did that with our Anniversary this last trip

[TMO] Not everybody, but many folks have friends that they still hang with from their childhood.

[TMO] Elementary, jr High, High school. Most folks best friends stem from then.

[Master] I only talk with one person from highschool

[TMO] I never talked with any of them until Facebook came around. And I rarely have anything to talk to them about now.

[Master] I like to think I have met more interesting people

[Master] present company included

[Master] so Tabletop is coming along Lisa and Micahel

[Master] you are not over on G+

[Master] someone is making very nice maps for us

[Lisa] I have popped in there

[Michael] Oh good. Will it still kick me off every 30 seconds?? :)

[Master] thank you!

[Lisa] just not logging in and posting

[Master] we do not know yet

[Master] 750 people in the community on G+

[Michael] What is G+ is that something I need to do?

[Master] no to Michael

[Master] you do not HAVE to

[TMO] Google Plus

[Master] it helps

[Michael] Oh dud

[Michael] *Duh

[Master] but there is also a forum

[Master] I pay attention to both

[Master] for what we do

[TMO] Only savvy and hip tec hsters who can see the wave of the future are on it

[Master] the key thing is getting used to things

[Master] laughs

[Michael] Well I am tech savvy. But only for things that interest me or prove useful. So I am blinded to roughly half of that stuff

[TMO] not hip, man.

[Michael] No

[Michael] Just No

[Lisa] lol

[Michael] :)

[Master] but overall what we will need eventually is more data entry

[Master] which I will farm out when we are ready Michael

[Michael] If this will help just tell me what to do and I'll hop on

[Michael] I wanna make things easier for everyone

[Master] it will be a lot of copy and paste from PDF to a text data file

[Master] adding in spells to a huge list for example

[Master] I hope to set up the plan this weekend

[Master] now that we are having a storm

[Master] but

[Master] to point

[Master] Branwyn is at the library investigating books

[Master] Hugh and Indigo are on a boat

[Master] heading home

[Michael] Im on a boat

[Master] when/if Eric logs in we jump there

[Master] I do think that we need to take a moment to compare notes

[Lisa] any word from corvus?

[Master] and decide what is important on the calendar to finish

[Master] no

[Michael] Yeah is he still alive? I didn't see much from him

[Master] the plan for me at least

[Michael] I didn't post anything but I did keep up

[Master] is to have everyone in sync and at the Residence as of September 18th

[Master] at the latest

[Master] so that on Sep 19 - The Birthday Game - we can do the Feast of Megrim

[Master] brb grabbing a glass of water

[Michael] Oh dear lord I forgot about the parties. Yeah Branwyn you should retire as ambassador so we can go kill things with much bloodshed and abandon. And get paid while doing it.

[TMO] but here we get paid to drink

[TMO] and might even start a war!

[Master] b

[Master] and there will be several chances at that coming up

[Master] this is just the get everyone used to being part of the diplomatic staff right now

[Master] I have a plan for several parties through new years

[TMO] ecstasy!

[Lisa] just wait until branwyn's summer vacation

[Master] then in the summer (months away)

[Master] Branwyn has a plan for where she wants to go

[Master] she will reveal when she wants

[Lisa] now?

[Master] you can

[Lisa] I want to spend my summer in the Underdark :)

[Lisa] None of these beaches and lounge chairs

[Lisa] we can split the party for those who wish to relax

[TMO] sounds like fun.

[Lisa] branwyn is getting antsy and wants some dangerous adventures

[Michael] Do I get to kill stuff and make money?

[Lisa] we shall see on the latter

[Master] there will undoubtably be a chance at both

[Master] in direct relation to the chance of dying

[Lisa] underdark should be good for tabletop?

[Lisa] terrain wise I mean

[Michael] Do mercenaries kill stuff probono? Hmmm something sounds fishy :)

[Master] by the time we get there I think

[Master] the link I am sharing will work for a while

[Lisa] we are dining with the elvish ambassador - he/she might bring it up

[Master] soonish he wil activate the servers and check for subscriptions

[Master] I already paid for everyone so no worries on that

[Master] I will keep a copy of the downloads on our site as well most likely

[Michael] Will you please let me reimburse you? I feel like ajerk

[Master] show up to play

[Master] that is the best way to pay me back

[Master] have fun

[Michael] *Sigh* Same response as last time haha

[Master] I paid for everyone for Klooge 12+ years ago

[Master] I can do that once a decade, grins

[Michael] lol

[Master] but the i

[Master] cras

[Lisa] by the time christmas comes maybe you can by him an accessory

[Master] crashing

[Master] getting lots of java errors right now

[Master] have to click through them all to be able to type here again

[Master] so

[Master] Tabletop is up if this does collapse totally

[Master] but for now

[Master] we need to know what y ou feel is important to roleplay here on a Friday (and a Saturday) night sessions

[Master] prior to the 19th

[Master] and we can start that

[Master] we are on the 8th

[Master] 8-10-1266 Branwyn at the Library

[Master] we left the boat crew on 6-10-1266

[Master] I think

[Master] will double check that now

[Master] yes

[Master] 6-10 is the conversation with Isla in the bar

[Michael] test

[Michael] sorry

[Master] yeap

[Master] waiting for ideas

[Lisa] ok

[Michael] Well I wouldn't mind being at the boat. Were jsut waiting for corvus for that I guess

[Michael] Really I just want tot get back to the city asap

[Master] nods

[Lisa] bran dinner at prince's with elven ambassador we can either skip of if you want roleplay do on the site - marisu is the only one I think that would want to go

[Master] so you will take the boat to the wall then take paths and roads home

[Lisa] library I only wanted to do here because I will be casting

[Michael] I wouldn't mind being there

[TMO] is all giddy

[Michael] but I'm not here

[Lisa] yes with Bob and michael - I agree

[Lisa] get to shortcut and walk back

[Michael] Smiles

[Lisa] fastest way home is good

[Master] the short way home gets the boat people back the day before the party

[Michael] Then that is what we are doing. :)

[Lisa] yup

[Lisa] time to take a bath

[Michael] If you want me to do anything just let me know since I am not currently on the boar

[Michael] Or tell me what kind of ideas you would like

[Lisa] I am looking at Calendar from now to megrim

[Lisa] elven ambassador is supposed to come to our place but date not set

[Lisa] I would like to do in chat so everyone who is home can talk

[Master] and you can delay that till after the feast

[Lisa] doing it on site and we lose Mike and maybe tmo depending on his schedule

[Master] or invite them to the feast

[Lisa] I thought Imari invited them

[Lisa] city council meeting?

[Master] I think she was going to

[Lisa] are there agenda items we need or are you filling time?

[Master] and those city council meetings happen at the end of every week

[Master] there will always been chances to attend

[Master] they will be glad to meet without you

[Master] grins

[Lisa] and night before megrim is our second seance attempt

[Lisa] I would like that in chat

[Master] that night everyone will be in the city too

[Lisa] again rolls and blessings required

[Lisa] welcome home - let's go talk to the dead, shall we?

[Lisa] Tristan wil be thrilled

[Lisa] See what happens when you go away for a while?

[Michael] ncie one lisa

[Lisa] then there is whatever we want to do to solve sam's lineage question without alerting anyone that we are doing so

[Lisa] tmo? things you wish to do?

[TMO] nothing I can think of. Ilero and Shur are mostly just hangers on

[Lisa] no thieves guild stuff?

[Lisa] if you are keeping that box don't you want to open it?

[TMO] I'd forgotten about that

[TMO] see what a month off does to me?

[Lisa] your lack of curiosity is depressing :)

[TMO] lol

[Michael] I find your lack of faith disturbing... (Feel free to correct me if I just bungled that line)

[Lisa] I think that's right

[TMO] I think part of it is that when I first got here, I tried hard over a few weeks, but because those several weeks only occupied like 2 days, the NPCs didn't keep up with my expectations.

[TMO] ;)

[Master] chuckles

[Michael] Hey you are right in a way.. That's why I swiyched from policital machinations to killing stuff and getting loot. It's a lot faster :)

[Master] the political stuff works

[Lisa] it's also a silly thief thing

[Lisa] all that code

[Master] just takes more than a couple of hours to make changes to the way things work

[Lisa] send bran or indigo in and they will just spill it in 5 seconds

[Master] but if you keep visiting with the right people

[Master] etc.

[TMO] yeah, but then we went dragon hunting

[Michael] I know that. It's jsut that I naturally don't have that sort of temprement so it shows in the game.

[Michael] Tht's stuff I can do online during the week

[Master] by the way will all three of you be in on Saturday night next week? as we are not playing on Friday?

[TMO] I don't know of any plans to be elsewhere

[Lisa] I can do that

[Michael] I will be at Universal Studios and don't know yet. Sorry

[TMO] tomorrow I'm maybe going to be Escaping From a Room

[Michael] I'll do my best to be on

[Lisa] you sure get around :)

[Lisa] Universal Studios is a good thing

[Michael] If I don't play once in ahwile work will grind me donw no matter how much I like it. Also I dn't go on month long adventures. Haha

[Master] yeah last one for a while for us

[Lisa] Escaping from a room?

[Lisa] Is this a bondage thing?

[TMO] Locked Room mystery. Solve the clues to get the combo to unlock the door

[Michael] What?

[Michael] you lost me

[Master] gnawing his leg off to get out?

[Lisa] lol

[TMO] never done one before, don't know if this is similar or not: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQAh0rPl6Hw

[TMO] but wife has to be feeling well enough to be left alone with the kids

[Master] the kids can take care of her

[TMO] nnnnooooo....

[Lisa] or drive her crazy

[Master] so from what I understand Branwyn has to roleplay the library like we were at the beginning of the night

[TMO] who is with her?

[Master] anyone in town

[Lisa] (unless you want to do the end of the boat trip first)

[Master] so Ilero and Marisu and Shur

[Master] (I did text Eric to remind him)

[Michael] I would personally love to end the boar trip...

[Lisa] (come watch the apprentices die)

[TMO] Marisu likes the library idea

[Lisa] (the boat last leg we can do with tmo, michael and indigo)

[Master] [Marisu]] moved 65'10".

[Master] Branwyn moved 66'11".

[Lisa] (wait til she meets the librarian!)

[Lisa] (which are we doing first?)

[Master] library

[Master] Useless moved 54'10".

[Lisa] (bring marisu's library spells)

[Master] Johan the Apprentice moved 57'04".

[TMO] I am back at the keyboard.

Marisu (TMO)] library spells?

[Useless (Master)] I beleive she means raise dead

[Lisa] (spells you would use in a library with magical books)

Marisu (TMO)] flame strike

[Useless (Master)] after I heard about what happend to the previous apprentice she took there

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] it cannot be that bad

[Lisa] Heard? You were there

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] I saw him get frozen

Marisu (TMO)] let me set her spells real quick

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] I did not know he died

[Lisa] You helped me carry the frozen Abe from the reading room, Useless

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] (it has been a month I am a little rusty, ;) )

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (It's ok. just another excuse to beat up the apprentices)

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] (hah!)

Marisu (TMO) (to GM only)] Character sheet for [Marisu]] modified: Spells - CHANGED: Copy -- # Memorized: 1 (0), CHANGED: Message -- # Memorized: 0 (1), CHANGED: Read Magic -- # Memorized: 2 (0), CHANGED: Shocking Grasp -- # Memorized: 0 (1),

Marisu (TMO)] ok

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] So Miss Marisu do you have Raise Dead?

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] or Remove Paralysis?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Maybe we should take Jennevive.

Marisu (TMO)] No, sorry. I only have very minor talents.

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] ahhh, no it is ok, we are good as we are

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We'll see about that.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (so jump to library where branwyn has been chatting up illporn)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (3 books on table)

[Johan the Apprentice (Master)] (read the beginning part of the chat log please everyone)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (freeze book that killed Abe, chained book and mystery book)

Illporn (Master) puts an arm in front of Johan before he can get to touch the books

Illporn (Master) raises an eyebrow

[Branwyn (Lisa)] No one touches the books yet

[Illporn (Master)] you are new here aren't you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (can Ilero detect magical traps or does he have chance of blowing them up while trying to detect them?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] This is Johan. He won't be doing anythig until we know the book are safe.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (books)

[Illporn (Master)] or perhaps afterwards either

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That too

Marisu (TMO)] I think he might have a tiny chance

Marisu (TMO)] but wayyyy small

Branwyn (Lisa) walks over and looks to see if there is writing on the cover of any of the three

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I have stuff to try)

[Illporn (Master)] only symbols

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (not touching anything

Marisu (TMO)] (he's only got a 40% for normal traps. magical traps is probably not worth trying)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (it's ok)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Well let's save the chained book for last shall we?

[Illporn (Master)] I think that is a wise choice

Branwyn (Lisa) steps back a bit and motions for others to do the same

[Illporn (Master)] What are you going to do?

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at third book (not frees or chained)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am going to open the third book

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (you know which I mean?)

[Illporn (Master)] (yes)

Branwyn (Lisa) makes sure no one is standing close to the book and concentrates in the cover

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn casts a spell against : Telekinesis: I can sustain movement of an object of 25 lbs or less for (2+10) 12 rounds or I can shove (25*10) 250 lbs of stuff (10*10) 100 feet away in a single burst.

[Marisu]] (TMO) hides in a corner.

Branwyn (Lisa) moves her hand as if opening the book

[Master] The cover flips up and over

[Master] the book gives off a burst of fire and smoke

Marisu (TMO)] you know, you do need Ilero for this.

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Is the book okay?

[Illporn (Master)] HEY!

Illporn (Master) THROWS a blanket over it

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I didn't think he wanted to work with magical traps Marisu

Marisu (TMO)] Ilero has that hand thing of his.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We have many books. He can do the next one if he wants. I didn't want anything to happen to his hand.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Would his hand have caught on fire just now?

[Illporn (Master)] the table could have! the other books could have! What are you thinking!

Branwyn (Lisa) walks over to the book

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I was thinking we needed to open it.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You won't let us take the books outside

[Illporn (Master)] wehn you treat them like this! Absolutely not

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Here, let's take a look.

Illporn (Master) frowns

Branwyn (Lisa) lifts blanket

[Illporn (Master)] reluctantly pulls the blanket back

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I doubt the mage wanted to destroy his book just because someone opened it

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I think the flame was intended for the intruder and not the pages

Branwyn (Lisa) looks down

[Illporn (Master)] the title page says

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn casts a spell against : Read Magic: I can read magical writing for (10*2) 20 rounds

[Master] Herein lies the collected wisdom of Bosero the Drunkard

[Branwyn (Lisa)] This should be interesting.

[Master] looks to be about 21 spells

Branwyn (Lisa) turns the page to the contents and reads one or two

[Master] projected image stands out as something you have not heard over before

[Master] detect magic

[Master] dispel magic

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Hmmm ... illusion

[Master] protection from evil

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs

[Master] wizard eye

[Branwyn (Lisa)] basic

[Master] stone to flesh

[Master] remove curse

[Branwyn (Lisa)] interesting

[Master] ploymorph others

[Master] hold person

[Master] hold monster

[Master] detect invisitiblitiy

Branwyn (Lisa) turns another page

Marisu (TMO) (to GM only)] Character sheet for [Marisu]] modified: Spells - CHANGED: Copy -- # Memorized: 3 (1), CHANGED: Read Magic -- # Memorized: 0 (2),

[Master] cloukill

[Branwyn (Lisa)] This one seems safe now

[Master] conjur elemental

[Master] charm person

[Master] continual light

[Master] detect evil

[Master] dimension door

[Master] fireball

[Master] fly

Marisu (TMO)] Clownkill? That sounds distubing.

[Master] knock

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I think Useless or Johan can handle this one

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (lol - cloud kill)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Most of these spells are pretty common Illporn

[Branwyn (Lisa)] A drunken mage did not seem to be too much into research

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But it is a very nice basic spell book

Spring has joined the game on Fri Aug 28 21:26:40 EDT 2015

Spring is receiving the map New Residence second floor...

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Any new mage would be quite happy to possess such a thing.

Spring has received the map New Residence second floor.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (hi spring!)

[Master] and Hello Spring!

[Spring] hi hi!

[Spring] lovely to see you, everybody!

Marisu (TMO)] Spring has been sprung

[Spring] spoingoingoing

[Branwyn (Lisa)] :)

[Master] Kenna is at the Royal Library

[Master] with Branwyn investigating dangerous books

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (in case we decide to set ourselves on fire or anything)

[Spring] awright

[Master] right now you have one that blasted a freeze spell at someone and killed them

[Master] adn then the other book that is wrapped up in chains

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Illporn, can my apprentice take the notes for you on this one now?

Branwyn (Lisa) whispers to Johan "One copy for the library and one for us"

[Illporn (Master)] he can take notes on which spells are in the tome but he cannot make copies of the spells

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Certainly.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Now for the book of freezing.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Ilero , do you wish to risk your hand or shall I send someone to open it?

[Illporn (Master)] now that Marisu is here she can attempt things

[Illporn (Master)] and or Kenna

[Marisu]] (TMO) attempts things.

[Illporn (Master)] with history sort of thing legend lore?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] hm

Ilero (TMO)] ... what happen to hand if it freeze?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (not the first clue how to open a dangerous book)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (this is book abe opened and apprentice froze)

[Illporn (Master)] It killed the AMbassador's previous apprentice

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The trap might have been sprung and it is now perfectly safe

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] and then again perhaps not

[Ilero]] (TMO) shrugs. "Eh, why not? Not live forever."

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I have one more spell and Midguard's scrol; but we may need them for the chained volume. Marisu? Did you bring any open from a distance spells?

[Ilero]] (TMO) takes off his cloak and makes sure he has room to dodge into.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Oh I have two. I was so focused this morning. You do not have to risk it if you do not wish to.

Marisu (TMO)] I only brought spells to speed copying if there's anything we want.

[Illporn (Master)] Eric will be in next week, gets his Internet on Tuesday

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (tell him we are happy to hear it!)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] :-)

[Illporn (Master)] so who is opening the freezing book and how?

Branwyn (Lisa) whispers to Marisu "Maybe when this opening process is over you can take a look at these books"

[Ilero]] (TMO) pulls on his gloves and limbers up his fingers.

Branwyn (Lisa) stands back from the table again

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] would that i could, but i have nothing helpful

Ilero (TMO)] (what do you need Ilero to roll?)

[Illporn (Master)] jsut tell me what you are doing

Ilero (TMO)] (using the Hand to lift the cover of the book)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Kenna Westfoot modified:

Ilero (TMO)] ready to dodge out of the way

[Illporn (Master)] so the cover opens up and a blast of frost shoots up to engulf the hand

[Illporn (Master)] (1d20) [1d20=6] 6

[Illporn (Master)] which is saves against

[Illporn (Master)] and Ilero can pull it back

Ilero (TMO)] any effect for his fingers?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Can you wrap it up in your cloak and warm it back up again?

[Illporn (Master)] none to his fingers

[Illporn (Master)] because it made its save

[Illporn (Master)] other wise woudl have lost his hand

Ilero (TMO)] hand, or Hand?

Ilero (TMO)] or both?

[Illporn (Master)] both

Ilero (TMO)] eek

Ilero (TMO)] send in the apprentices!

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Let's not do that again.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] 0.O

Branwyn (Lisa) walks over and looks at open page

Ilero (TMO)] although a 6 saves, so it's got good protections

Ilero (TMO)] Hey, here idea...

Ilero (TMO)] Don't close stupid book again.

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) smiles

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] then again, we oculd use it as a weapon ...

Ilero (TMO)] Leave on end table wit' sign "Do Not Read"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Oh no, we're reading. It's fine now I think

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] no, as a trap

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (waits anxiously for title

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (it's open on the table I just went to take a look)

[Illporn (Master)] it is a red leather book, bound around wooden boards with brass hoops holding the entire thing together

[Illporn (Master)] the cover is dyed red

[Illporn (Master)] Detho's Libram on the first page

[Illporn (Master)] is all it says

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Illporn, do you know a mage named Detho?

Branwyn (Lisa) turns page

Illporn (Master) not that I remember off the top of my head, we could do the research

[Illporn (Master)] there is no content page

[Illporn (Master)] the first spell is called Catapult

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] sigh. wish i could read

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] maybe when i finish my current course of study

Branwyn (Lisa) turns a few more pages to make sure it is safe

[Illporn (Master)] next spell is Detect Magic

[Illporn (Master)] then Detho's Delirium

Branwyn (Lisa) murmurs "basic"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] this one's interesting

[Illporn (Master)] then Flying Fist

Ilero (TMO) (to Master only)] do I have to Read Magic before I can Copy a spell?

[Illporn (Master)] and then burning hands

[Illporn (Master) (to TMO only)] yes

[Branwyn (Lisa)] He's got some battle spells in this one

Ilero (TMO) (to Master only)] Thought so. 3 1st level spells, so I can only do 1 combo

[Illporn (Master)] the book seems to have about 20 to 22 spells in it

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Mostl likely why this trap is more dangerous than the drunken mage

Ilero (TMO) (to GM only)] Character sheet for [Marisu]] modified: Spells - CHANGED: Copy -- # Memorized: 1 (3), CHANGED: Read Magic -- # Memorized: 1 (0), CHANGED: Comprehend Languages -- # Memorized: 1 (0),

[Branwyn (Lisa)] This one is good for copying titles from.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Like Ilero said though, no closing of the books until you are finished.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That would be a bad idea.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Useless?

[Useless (Master)] yes? sighs

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Take this to a table. Carefully.

[Useless (Master)] it is on a table

[Branwyn (Lisa)] A table away from the chained book please

[Useless (Master)] very well

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Well if you wish to sit next to the chained book while we unleash it you are welcome to do so

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at chained book

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (is there a padlock or just chains wrapped around it?)

[Useless (Master)] carries the book away to the far corner

[Master] chains wrapped around no visible lock

Ilero (TMO)] (bolt cutters?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Illporn are you sure you want us to open this inside the library? We could take it out to the garden.

[Illporn (Master)] books cannot leave the library

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (OT: just got Tabletop downloaded. I started it 45 minutes before i got online. need different internet service)

[Illporn (Master)] (Spring I will try to post on Wednesdays which version we will be using so you have time ahead of time)

Ilero (TMO)] (back in a bit)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (that's kind but it was my schedule that was the problem)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (i couldn't have started until i got home tonight. that's likely to frequently be the case)

[Illporn (Master)] my plan is to limp along with Klooge

[Illporn (Master)] until we are a bit farhter along on Tabletop

[Illporn (Master)] for example right now chat saves but miniautres do not

[Illporn (Master)] so have to reset at the beginning of each session

[Illporn (Master)] that will change in the future of course

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] ash well, life be's that way sometimes

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] *ah

[Michael] i'll be back shjortly sorry

[Illporn (Master)] but I will ahve it up every session as the back up

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i like tabletop more, but what can you do

[Illporn (Master)] to jump to if things happen

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Are we ready? I think we need to just remove the chains and see what happens

[Illporn (Master)] so back to Spells

[Illporn (Master)] what do you plan on doing about these chains?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] maybe i am forgetting

[Illporn (Master)] the book seems to be made of brass

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] but i can't see my detailed spell descriptions

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Kenna, can you be ready to defend against anything that comes flying out at us?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i thought i was supposed to go to character sheet then spells, then click or double click on one to read the details

[Illporn (Master)] edit your character sheet

[Illporn (Master)] click on your spells

[Illporn (Master)] and then there will be an i that shows you

[Illporn (Master)] IF it is working

[Illporn (Master)] if not

[Illporn (Master)] then that is still broken

Branwyn (Lisa) steps away from the table again

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] no i

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (let me know when you're ready)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] without being able to see my spells, i have no idea

[Illporn (Master)] sorry Spring

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i could randomly throw likely-titled things at it

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] but who knows

[Illporn (Master)] ask and I can look them up

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i thought dispel magic sounded likely

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (that would be great!)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I don't know if chains are a precaution or not - didn't want to waste spell on chain removal - what do you think?)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] most everything else i have is stuff you do to people to give them protection

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (i was going to send my unseen servant to remove the chains)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] which i should probably cast on the opener

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] oh that sounds good

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I am trying not to have us open anything)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i have wind servant but it wouldn't be strong enough for that kind of thing

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (16 turns he lasts)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (but if weird illusion happens or something dispel magic would be good :) )

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Kenna Westfoot modified:

Branwyn (Lisa) concentrates on conjuring a little friend

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn casts a spell against : Unseen Servant: A little unseen force does stuff for me for (6+10) 16 turns.

Branwyn (Lisa) commands "Remove chains from book"

[Illporn (Master)] the chains start to rattle

[Illporn (Master)] the book jumps up and down on the table

[Illporn (Master)] but they do not come off

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at book

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] well that is disappointing

[Illporn (Master)] after the unseen servant gives up

[Illporn (Master)] the book settles down on the table again

[Branwyn (Lisa)] My unlocking spell doesn't work on magical locks

[Illporn (Master)] there does not appear to be a lock

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] peculiar

[Branwyn (Lisa)] There is a lock. We just cam't see it.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Kenna, do you want to try dispel magic on the chain?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] why not

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] Kenna Westfoot casts a spell against : Dispel Magic - Priest: I dispel (11-(1d20)+6) [1d20=9] 8 level magic.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] Kenna Westfoot casts a spell against : Dispel Magic - Priest: I dispel (11-(1d20)+6) [1d20=15] 2 level magic.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] whoops

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i guess that was single click, not double

[Illporn (Master)] and no the chains still hold

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] bother

[Michael] alrighty i'm back

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (not sure how the rolls work - was an 8 hitting high level spells?)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] should we try telling the book to open?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] book, open!

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I wouldn't mind if we could get the silly chains off it. The librarian put them on and not the mage.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] What sort of chains do you use here in the library Illporn. I should have just asked you to remove them.

[Illporn (Master)] A librarian not me

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] seems fair to ask the librarian to remove them then

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (gmta)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Are you saying that you are not skilled in the art of book chaining?

[Illporn (Master)] I do not see any locks that my keys would fit into

[Branwyn (Lisa)] you don't have a librarian's guide to chaining up runaway books?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] probably it is too dangerous to feel the chains to see if there is an invisible lock?

[Illporn (Master)] we have not added any new magical books to the library in at least 15 years

[Illporn (Master)] back when I was an apprentice here under the previous librarian

[Branwyn (Lisa)] it didnt seem to do anything to the unseen servant.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I can try.

Branwyn (Lisa) takes a deep breath and heads back over to the book

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) holds breath

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) ready to render aid

Branwyn (Lisa) takes a section of the chain along its spine and pulls - standing to the spine side of the book and not leaning directly over it

Ilero (TMO)] (back, sorry about that)

[Illporn (Master)] make a wisdom check

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn: WIS check: (d20) [1d20=19] 19 - ROLL FAILED against 13!!

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (if she was wise would she be going around yanking strange book's chains?)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] hehehe

[Illporn (Master)] the chains fall off the book it opens and a dark red light comes out and settles upon branwyn's chest

[Illporn (Master)] then fades out

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i do not like the look of that!

[Branwyn (Lisa)] See! I'm not going to hurt you

[Illporn (Master)] Kenna can make a wisdom check

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] Kenna Westfoot: WIS check: (d20) [1d20=9] 9 - ROLL SUCCEEDED against 15!!

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I think it was scanning me

[Illporn (Master) (to Spring only)] Kenna knows that is the mark of a demon, so it knows how to find its prey when it goes hunting

[Illporn (Master)] the book opens

Branwyn (Lisa) steps back

[Illporn (Master)] and the name on the inside under the brass cover

[Illporn (Master)] is Fiendomicon if Iggwilv

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (anything fly out?)

Ilero (TMO)] (eep! O_o)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i think you have been seen by a demon

[Illporn (Master)] Other than that light? no

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Fiendomicon? Sounds evil

TMO flees.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Where's Yulotte when you need him?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i think a demon may have marked you for hunting, this does not look good

Branwyn (Lisa) turns to Kenns "seen by a demon?"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Oh lovely.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] that light, that is what it looked like

[TMO] (I have an idea who Iggwilv is)

[TMO] (although in a different world. No telling if Bob's repurposed the name)

[Illporn (Master)] speculation never hurt

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Well if he is coming after me, I suppose we should find out what it knows.

[TMO] (metagame knowledge. I know who Iggwilv is in the World of Greyhawk)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (did unseen servant fade?)

[Illporn (Master)] yes

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i wonder if remove curse will remove the mark

Branwyn (Lisa) stands as far back as possible and turns page

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I would like that when we are finished, Kenna. Thank you.

[Illporn (Master)] with a quick glance through the pages, the lowest level spell is 4th

[Illporn (Master)] Abjure

[Illporn (Master)] which is a priest spell

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (do I know that?)

[Illporn (Master)] there are 7th and 8th level mage spells

[Illporn (Master)] all dealign with Binding, controling demons and devils

[Branwyn (Lisa)] There s a mage friend I know who would kill for this book.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Or at least hire us to get it for him.

Ilero (TMO)] Will kill a demon for it?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] At least I know why he said not to open those books we got him last time.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I have no doubt Yulotte has had to kill many demons by now.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If he isn't dead himself.

Branwyn (Lisa) closes book and wraps it up again in the chain

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Illporn this is an evil book and needs to remain chained and out of reach.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Destroyed would be better but that may be difficult given the nature of the book

[Illporn (Master)] the chains do not go back on

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] oh. lovely

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I should be able to wrap them around it even if I can't "lock" it

[Illporn (Master)] they seem to slip and slide around

[Illporn (Master)] as you try to pick the book up they fall off

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The prior librarian must have hired a priest or mage to chain this.

[Illporn (Master)] He was a mage

Ilero (TMO)] Well, not'ing we can do.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Do you have a box to put the book in for now? Then chain up the box and I will ask for help at the guild.

[Illporn (Master)] hands you the blanket he used earlier

Branwyn (Lisa) wraps book in blanket and then wraps chains

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You'd think the book would like me by now

[Illporn (Master)] chains still do not stay on

[Branwyn (Lisa)] A box with a lid please

[Branwyn (Lisa)] we can put it on top of the head eating hat

[Illporn (Master)] he looks around but does not have anything handy

[Branwyn (Lisa)] illporn, do you want a demon book loose in the library? Please find a box.

Ilero (TMO)] Or bag.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And a padlock

[Branwyn (Lisa)] a normal padlock

Ilero (TMO)] And river

[Illporn (Master)] I will look

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you

Ilero (TMO)] Like wit' cats.

Branwyn (Lisa) gives Ilero a stunned look

Ilero (TMO)] (lol)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You drown cats?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i do not think it would drown, cat or no

[Michael] Sorry family is insisting I eat dinenr. I guess thats important

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] but drowning a cat would be terrible

[Michael] brb

[Branwyn (Lisa)] No we just need a mage who can bind it

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If Useless wants to run to the guild and get someone for me then we can take care of this now.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Useless!!

[Useless (Master)] I am here

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Do you understand what has happened?

[Useless (Master)] but it will take time

[Useless (Master)] to go there and back

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes

[Useless (Master)] I doubt it is important enough to do right now is it?

[Useless (Master)] I mean it already marked you

[Useless (Master)] that is what I would be worried about

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Oh as long as I see it coming I will rip it to shreds

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] he does have a point

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] perhaps i should try to remove it now

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am more worried about someone opening this in the meantime

[Branwyn (Lisa)] but alright. Might as well.

Branwyn (Lisa) stands with her arms open

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Give it a go

[Useless (Master)] I think just piling things on top of this will keep anyone from looking again

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] something has happened

[Useless (Master)] and I think the librarian will stop that too

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i now have potions in my spell book

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Demon potions?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] and my remove curse is now gone

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i assume they are potions. they are bottles with red in them

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] but the spell names are here

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That is odd

[Useless (Master)] checking

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] oh!

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] it is showing me YOUR character sheet

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] o rather, dice panel

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] Kenna Westfoot casts a spell against : Remove Curse - Priest: I remove a curse.

[Master] roll for that

[Master] a d20

[Master] will check

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (me or spring?)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] hm ... looking for how to do that

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] also somehow i de-targeted you

[Master] you can just type it

[Master] curly bracket

[Master] d20

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] d20

[Master] curley bracket

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (d20) [1d20=14] 14

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] thanks

[Master] and no

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] :-(

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Curses!

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] indeed

Ilero (TMO)] (No, Cursed!)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (so I still have a date with a demon?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I'm so excited! This is even better than potion tasting)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (afraid so. you aree now the prey)

[Master] you can do some research on how long the hunt normally takes

[Master] etc.

Ilero (TMO)] (Happy Birthday Bran! We got you what you've always wanted!)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] How do we research demon hunts?

[Master] carefully?

Ilero (TMO)] Find survivors and ask how it happen?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] legends?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I'll stop by the guild. I only hope it waits until tomorrow so I can memorize more battle spells than I have today

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Is Illporn still out looking?

[Master] yes

Illporn (Master) THUMP scrape THUMP scrape THUMP

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Marisu, do you want to take a quick copy of those books while we have the room to ourselves?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Oops

[Illporn (Master)] sounds coming from the stairs going down

[Illporn (Master)] no sign of him yet

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] great

Marisu (TMO)] I can only copy a single spell, and I can only do it once..

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Okay. If you see one you like.

Marisu (TMO)] I think we need to worry about other things first.

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) holding on to religious symbol

[Illporn (Master)] THUMB

[Illporn (Master)] scratch

[Illporn (Master)] THUMP

Branwyn (Lisa) calls "Need any help?"

[Illporn (Master)] he comes up with a large crate

[Marisu]] (TMO) backs into a corner.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] heh

Kenna Westfoot (Spring) laughs

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That is the only box you could find?

Branwyn (Lisa) shrugs "it's fine

[Illporn (Master)] opens it up

[Illporn (Master)] picks up the chain wrapped blanket

[Illporn (Master)] dumps it all into the crate

[Illporn (Master)] hands Useless a hammer and nails

[Ilero]] (TMO) picks up his cloak off the floor and tosses it off to one side, out of the way.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I think we should leave the other chained books alone. I hope we've been able to help answer some questions for you.

[Useless (Master)] hammer hammer

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Send me a message if there are any other unchained books you'd like us to look at.

Branwyn (Lisa) turns to Johan "How is it going?"

[Illporn (Master)] I would prefer if no one came to the library

[Michael] m'kay i'm back

Ilero (TMO)] Always nice be welcomed.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I know. But then who would be able to tell you about your magic books?

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] hi michael!

[Illporn (Master)] I will think long and hard on that

[Michael] hey! long time no see. haha. good to see you

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Kenna Westfoot modified:

[Branwyn (Lisa)] So we will let Useless and Johan finish their work and hand you a list of their contents and we'll be on our way.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] :-)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I think we have answered many questions for you.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And everyone's still alive today. Much better outcome.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] so far

[Illporn (Master)] yes it is a good day when no one dies in the library

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] i do not like that i could not get the mark of the demon off you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I would recommend writing a note to attach to each book to describe what the traps are for future patrons.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Don't worry Kenna. The mark will be removed one way or another.

[Illporn (Master)] I think I will just not let people visit them

[Branwyn (Lisa)] They will get quite lonely, but it is your library.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Or the Prince's library, rather.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I will tell him how helpful you have been.

[Illporn (Master)] Thank you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You are very welcome.

[Master] so returning to the residence

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That was interesting.

Ilero (TMO)] (thumping?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We should let the guards know a demon might be coming and to sound the alarm if the see one coming to call.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (it was just the box he was dragging)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (thought for sure it was a demon with a limp)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (he could have had help if he would let anyone into the closed stacks)

Ilero (TMO)] (test)

Ilero (TMO)] (there we go. couldn't reach the end of the chat)

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (i see you)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (that would be disappointing Spring. If a demons coming after me I want it to be a big old bad one)

Ilero (TMO)] (5' tall gruff)

[Master] so

Ilero (TMO)] (sry, I'd missed it was the box)

[Master] Michael you there?

[Michael] awaiting orders

[Master] switch over to Indigo adn Hugh pushing off from town

[Michael] Okay.

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] (oo oo do i get to be Leafus again?)

[Master] go for it

[Kenna Westfoot (Spring)] :-)

Ilero (TMO)] (ok, going to spend a bit of time with kids and then put them to bed.)

[TMO] I am away from the keyboard.

[Master] we should be a half hour or so TMO

[Michael] So... Onwards to town?

[Master] so to refresh everyone

Lisa is receiving the map Marjoram...

Lisa has received the map Marjoram.

[Master] Deksport is the town you were/are in

[Master] got supplies and are getting ready to push off

Lisa is receiving the map New Residence second floor...

Lisa has received the map New Residence second floor.

[Master] we can presume that Isla is there at the last moment

[Master] continuing the bit from the site

[Indigo (Lisa)] (got a black screen when I tried to go to indigo map)

[Master] accross the river is Orcnest Deep forest

[Master] there is no map there

[Master] sorry

[Indigo (Lisa)] (it's okay - kust warning not to bother)

[Michael] I only have the residence map

[Indigo (Lisa)] (just)

[Master] part of all the broken pile of rubble

[Michael] it flickered for a moment

[Indigo (Lisa)] (no worries)

[Michael] but not there

[Master] Indigo knows that Orcnest Deep lies on the far northeast edge of Gold Hills

[Master] you will soon have the Bindbole wood on the opposite bank of the river which is part of Gold Hills

[Indigo (Lisa)] (brb - getting some water)

[Michael] test

[Master] do you all understand where you are going and what the plan is?

[Leafus (Spring)] i see you michael

[Michael] No. As far as I know we are going to the city and are currently following the river in a boat

[Leafus (Spring)] last i recall we were going to keep going until just outside the city wall and then get out

[Master] http://www.dragonslayers-society.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.DryadsLairPrincipality

[Master] Spring has it

[Michael] yes

[Leafus (Spring)] come into the city proper a different way

[Master] you are going to try to find the path there along the Blumm Wood

[Master] and then follow down into the city

[Michael] cant we just follow the wall to an entrance?

[Master] you can

[Master] you could land at Tinder Cover

[Master] or Daggerspit

[Michael] hell, why dont we just dock at the docks if they are going there anyways

[Master] becasue it takes two or three more days to go all the way around the peninsula

[Master] and you will miss the party

[Michael] Is that a bad thing??? ;)

[Master] if you get off there, and then walk the rest of the way in you will make it during the day the day before the party

[Master] senance that night

[Master] party the next day

[Michael] So we are pushing off the docks and ...

[Michael] Everything cool?

[Master] heading south

Leafus (Spring) throwing ropes and winding things up

[Michael] I uh. Do stuff that helps

Leafus (Spring) securing things, fastening things

[Master] http://www.dragonslayers-society.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.DL-TinderCove

[Michael] Is this what we are approaching?

[Master] in about 60 to 80 miles

[Indigo (Lisa)] (back)

[Michael] Cool. It says there are still relics of the worst defeat there. can we explore...?

[Michael] Nevermind apparently I don't know how to swim

[Leafus (Spring)] we should be able to put to shore

[Leafus (Spring)] we did it to sleep

[Michael] Yeah, but all the cool stuff is probably under the water.

[Leafus (Spring)] (good point)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] We will have to come back some time and explore. See if there is any cool treasure still untouched...

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] *Wink wink Bob

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] That would be cool

[Leafus (Spring)] :-)

[Master] grins that is why it is there

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Whelp. In two years when i finally level up I will invest in swimming...

[Leafus (Spring)] :-)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Im playing the long con

[Leafus (Spring)] mister hugh, you needing help wid baby?

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Oh yeah thats right.

Hugh D'Ambray (Michael) Checks baby

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] No thank you, Mercy's alright

[Leafus (Spring)] leafus good uncle, if wanting a hand

Hugh D'Ambray (Michael) smiles warmly

[Leafus (Spring)] EIGHT sisters (holding up seven fingers) all having babies

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Thank you. I'll keep it in mind

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] OOC Now that's funny. I spit coke out

[Leafus (Spring)] :-)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] So...

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Anything exciting?

[Master] was letting you talk it out

[Master] but

[Master] did not want to push a combat encounter on you with the crippled mess we have

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Hurray! So we appear safe and sound at Timber Cove?

[Master] I did wan tto get teh chance to talk it out and work out the plans for the rest of this trip

[Master] well not yet

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] :)

[Leafus (Spring)] ( i totally do not remember what kind of cripped mess we have)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Klooge melts down on us

[Master] Klooge being a cripple mess

[Leafus (Spring)] (we put in for supplies. i wonder if we got some. oh and to press some sailors)

[Leafus (Spring)] (oh THAT crippled mess. i thought we meant in game)

[Master] yes to supplies, no to sailors except the one or two that TMO managed to get

[Master] but when you get further down river

[Master] are you just jumping out and hiking?

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] No. We have to pay them first.

[Master] ok

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Then we jump out

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] presuming they will dock first so I don't drown with a kid on me

[Master] there are no docks anywhere along this stretch of the river

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Is there a skiff attached to the boar?

[Leafus (Spring)] (no beaches?)

[Leafus (Spring)] (this boat was small enough, or shallow enough, to beach before)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (we paid when we boarded - gave the captain gems)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] And horses

[Master] you beach the boat

[Master] this is a long ship

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Okay so beach teh ship

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Hey bob can I ask a question"?

[Master] anything

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] I'm not trying to be a pain in the a** when it comes to getting ahead and I've never played DandD before quite like this, but is it at all possible that for certain skills like "swimming" we can just find someone to train us. It just seems like something that anyone could learn at anytime that doesn't need 10 billion expericne to do like crazy spells or engineering. It's just a basic bodily ability. If I had known it would take quite a bit longer then I expected to level up (not complaining) I probably would have distriubted some of my skills to actual things I would need for survival. Is there any compromise here or am I totally screwed until my next level up?

[Master] mostly screwed until your next level

[Master] you did not actually mess up

[Master] but to get new skills it does take a while

[Indigo (Lisa)] (ilero can't swim and we just yank him out every time he falls in)

[Leafus (Spring)] (real life skills tend to get rarely used, alas)

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] I'm considering suicide to start a new character. This is going to be a real pain haha

[Master] swimming for example, in a calm situation, calm water no combat, you can stay afloat

[Master] nah you are fine Michael, Hugh is a nice character

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Yes, but it's a skill isn't it

[Master] and yes to Lisa's point Ilero has almost drown several times

[Indigo (Lisa)] (indigo can teach him when he levels)

[Master] but if he took swimming he could not track as well

[Master] Indigo cannot swim

[Master] but he knows how to handle boats

[Master] but he cannot cook

[Indigo (Lisa)] (AND Bob gives nice XP to people who show up for the b-day game)

[Master] so he can eat, basic stuff but good meals to serve people every day? no

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Are there such things as life vests or barrels or something that can at least assist characters that cannot swim? I really want to explore that cove. It sounds like fun.

[Indigo (Lisa)] (Indigo can swim)

[Master] and I do try to make sure that XP is awarded for participation not for combat

[Master] and yes to that for you Michael, it depends on hwo creative the group gets

[Master] there are water breathing spells so it does not matter if you know how to swim

[Master] just sink down and walk around

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] So we wont be stopped from cool stuff becasue there are other options?

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] That's all I'm asking

[Indigo (Lisa)] (branwyn has water spells)

[Master] you are only limited by your imagination

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] So if I wanted to use engineerring to craft a diving suit you wouldn't stop me ;)

[Master] and be sure to look around at the descriptions for the peninsula

[Master] there are several interesting things

[Master] plus you have only explored less than a fourth of the city

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] I'll have to ask Bran. Shes the leader

[Master] so lots to do still

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Okay

[Master] so no game on Friday

[Master] we are playing on Saturday

[Master] to make up for it

[Master] still using Klooge for now

[Master] tabletop will be up as the backup

[Master] walking home with the boat people

[Master] misc things for the others

[Leafus (Spring)] alas, cannot be here labor day saturday

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] Is next sat the b-day game? I want the xp

[Master] not labor day

[Master] labor day the 7th

[Indigo (Lisa)] b-day game is the 19th

[Indigo (Lisa)] so no saturday makeup game?

[Master] Eric should be in

[Indigo (Lisa)] btw - I love gow kenna has spare underwear on her equipment list

[Leafus (Spring)] fingers crossed you don't have to use storm time on the storm

[Indigo (Lisa)] how

[Leafus (Spring)] LOL

[Leafus (Spring)] kenna is increditly sensible

[Leafus (Spring)] incredibly even

[Master] adn I might take advantage of your programing skills Spring

[Lisa] lol

[Hugh D'Ambray (Michael)] lol

[Spring] i don't have to make her up, she writes herself

[Master] I have all the characters sheets as XML files

[Master] will be good to strip out some of the tags etc to make it human readable

[Spring] oh aye, i can do that. doesn't even require programming -)

[Master] well I was also thinking of converting some of it

[Spring] i don't actually have viable programming skills anymore. but i can fake it

[Master] still ruminating on things

[Master] LOL

[Master] java script?

[Master] that is all we will be using

[Master] in Tabletop

[Spring] maybe. i took a course last year

[Master] ok

[Lisa] I am off to cool down

[TMO] I am back at the keyboard.

[Spring] don't remember but maybe can freshen up
