@The Mighty Hero

Are the guards still conscious after the 3 attacks?
My post requires this information.
Since if they are not an visibly appear conscious, then Kethan will tap one of the guards on the head with his staff-cane for more nonlethal damage.

Hopefully enough to knock them unconscious as he passes by and heads to the area demarcated on the map given from earlier were the Mayor's study would be. Looking for records of his shady back deals as proof. Since being Lawful neutral, he'd make sure he has some ledger or something to prove to the courts this coupe was needed. Is such an area existent or must we do a search?

Also note passive investigation of 17 from 10 + 5 + 2 such information is needed to make sense of the map/room.

If both are unconscious (or appear to be to the characters), I'll have Kethan do a Medicine check to check for consciousness. Then unless we are still in a combat encounter freely move towards the corridor and use Thaumaturgy to open the door. Because he's so used to using that cantrip to enter closed doors. I'd imagine him carrying a pile of books and walking through automatic doors.


The guards are no longer conscious. You would need to do a perception check once in the mayor's study to identify anything that might be incriminating (once you're in the room I will give you a description of what you can see from just walking in).

Once your medicine check (if successful) determines if the guards are conscious or not (and assuming they are not) players will add 450 XP to their totals. Just a reminder, successful skill checks will result in a 10 XP gain.

Moving forward I think I'm going to use the side initiative variant (players will rolls initiative as a group and I will roll initiative for the enemies as a group. Whoever wins will then get to go first and in any order they choose).

@The Mighty Hero If the players all roll init as a group, that makes a lot of initiative bonuses (class options and things like the Alert feat) pretty much useless. Enemies as a group works well enough, but player init? I'd rather not see my (or others') potential bonuses go to waste.

It does nullify any bonuses players would get as they collectively roll but I was thinking of using this variant because it will allow any available player to post instead of waiting for a specific player to post. You will still be held up by me if I'm not on to take the enemy's turn but this variant typically makes for faster gameplay.

"I will accompany the elvens upstairs towards the Mayor's study, a man can be judged by his collection of books... And where on those shelves the grey dust settles thick."

I see what you did there. :P

I tried to work my name into the post. Sadly, didn't work out.

@The Mighty Hero should I roll anything to figure out which room is the study, or is it obvious?

You could have known a guy whose name was known as J. B. Ram. They left you with a 4-digit code that reads 2002.

Did Arius find keys or anything else on the two guards with his investigation result of 19?

If you don't stoke the fire soon, it might go out.

@The Mighty Hero Agree with the statement above. There are a lot of people, myself included, awaiting DM response. We need regular replies to make things work. I can only speak for myself, but if I don't get a response within the next couple of days, I'll have to drop to make room for other options.

Update: Just saw the 0th post. I shall unsubscribe for now. Please mention me when you have a chance to continue this.

@The Mighty Hero
Thanks for the update.

Since I'm not really in any other games on this particular site, I will probably only be peeking in occasionally. So if you start back up later, please don't assume I'm not willing to continue just because I may not respond to a roll call immediately.

Unfortunate, but definitely justified. I'll remain subscribed for the time being. I hope everything goes better for you in the future.
