Alrighty Everyone, 'End of Session 1';

Any Questions, Comments, Criticisms, Concerns, or Compliments for the game so far? I ask this in an OOC/Meta sense, for the themes/vibe/enjoyment of the game so far rather than any in character sense.

Cool! A level up and onto the next chapter!

I definitely would love to do some RP with fellow PCs and NPCs before going onto the next quest. ^_^

However, Amaryllis, at this point in time, is more used to isolation/hermitry and is very task oriented right now, so someone would need to initiate a conversation with her. She is unlikely to do so if the conversation is not related to her tasks.

She would try to use what access to knowledge she has in Mildred's Palace to see if there are any sort of written documents/clues as to what could be going on in the Heartlands.

Really enjoying the game so far, myself! I do have a couple of questions:

1. How old are Regis and Gen meant to be? 'Cause you mentioned that Behemoths don't allow their youth to start going out alone and hunting until age 10, so depending how old these two are is going affect how comfortable he is with them coming along on what is already looking to be a dangerous journey. xD

2. Now that we're level 4, do we still get the choice of picking a feat as opposed to an ASI, given we already got a free feat at the beginning of this game?

Cool! A level up and onto the next chapter!

Same, I really am looking forward to various characters having the chance to have a breather and talk, though like Amaryllis, Vigil is also not the most sociable person in the world, and also more task-oriented. He'll definitely want to talk to his various companions though. As mentioned, he's already gained a decent amount of respect towards both Amaryllis and Iris simply due to fighting alongside them.

1) Gen is approximately 10-12 by appearances (and if questioned she has no clue on an exact number, herself, she’s never kept count). Regis knows he’s nine. So on the cusp of appropriate teenage-hood, both.

I may have said a different number elsewhere, but I changed my notes upon deciding anything younger was too young.

2) yes.

Sounds good, Vertigo! Let me know if you have any questions, otherwise feel free to introduce your character as you see fit.

As for everyone else, if you need suggestions or just want to OOC discuss your next move, feel free to hit me up here in the OOC.

Sorry for going MIA for a bit. I leveled up Iris on her character sheet and I took the ASI. I also agree with talking to the NPC and each other before moving on to the next quest.

Sounds good. For the sake of you guys having choices amongst the NPCs I’ll make a short list of them and their ‘usual’ locations during downtime in Fenhall so you can set scenes how you want etc if they’re your target. Otherwise feel free to just blame Alison for delaying setting out for some suitably haughty reason and interact with each other if you NEED an excuse to stop your characters from sprinting at the nearest problem and whacking it.

Out of curiosity, and possibly to compose a post to give an in for conversation, would it be possible to roll for Research into the Rot as a Downtime activity? If so, what skill should I roll for?

Amaryllis has several avenues that would each confer Advantage for different reasons entirely based upon her preference for performing this research;

Going to the Fenhall Palace and asking for permission to view their Library...

Going to the Noctem Shanty outside of town and asking for their insights...

or Going to the Grand Temple and asking the priesthood about it.

Where you go will only influence which of the relevant information tidbits I have you get 'first' if you don't roll sufficiently well to get 'all of it'; the Clergy will prioritize the religious information, the Noctem will prioritize tangential information, and the Fenhall Palace will prioritize the Dale-Folk centric history of the subject. If any of those catch your eye, let me know which one you're relying on for your Advantage then roll me an Investigation Check.

Hmm...
I think Amaryllis would go to the Library in Fenhall Palace first.
The temple would be the second place she visits, and then the Noctem if Amaryllis still has time after the Library.

Other 'easy' downtime things to do (from Xanathar's Guide To Everything, with me arbitrarily modifying results to fit Aesithas), mechanically, are...

'Work For Wages In Town' to get more pocket money

'Carousing', which would let you learn of anyone else of importance in the city you may have not already met.

'Religious Service', which may earn you the favor of the Clergy for more broad requests.

'Training', which would be a longer-term thing (which can be broken up across visits to Fenhall) to gain other Language/Tool proficiencies over time.




Gen, Regis, and U'Nunlo are mostly inseparable after their meeting. Rarely they can be found without U'Nunlo in direct sight in the Palace Garden, though they also go wandering the city streets At-Large and can be found often in the Market Plaza; now that they've been cleaned up and Gen given a new dress, they don't seem to be looked down upon as much. U'Nunlo either cannot be found, or for those of you particularly desiring to hunt them can be found on the outskirts of the city, foraging or communing with nature in the rare times they aren't with the kids; otherwise, they don't appear to leave the Palace Garden.

Tomas Smithson can be found anywhere and everywhere; the big city is new to him. The palace is new to him. He's often in the company of Ser Pyke, but also appears to feel an obligation to do some 'honest work that isn't hittin' things' and frequents the Smithy in town to help out. He also weekly visits the Temple to offer reverence to Noffe.

Alison and Crimson do not leave the palace, and Crimson remains silent and judgemental and cloud-like as he maintains his vigil over Alison. Alison, meanwhile, appears to practically live in the Fenhall Library, located in the base of the high tower, and Mildred appears to make time to come speak with her regularly.

Pyke is always busy, but also claims that he can always make time to help out or chat so long as people don't mind walking while they talk.

So that I have an understanding of what you're aiming for here, would you prefer 'you make the roll then I give you an info dump' or were you more aiming to roleplay out a scene of some kind? I'm cool either way, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't holding you up because you were expecting a post about the library or something. (If you were indeed expecting one, I can make one!)

Definitely no need to be sorry! :D

Posted now! @Guardian Angel Haruki, wasn't sure what your plans were, but I hope you don't mind I had Raj talk to Amaryllis. I figured a library would be the most sensible place for a wizard Noctem to be in, so! But do tell if you want me to edit.

Also @Fading Memory, would I be able to roll for what sort of information he might have picked up on while conducting his weird research there for a bit now? The subjects... well, some of them are definitely random (thanks, Conference), but I imagine he would have also researched things relating to some of their current objectives.

Will do the level up part tomorrow, since I gotta pick spells too.

Same kind of roll as Amaryllis; advantage on an Investigation check, list me the priority order of the things you'd be researching.
