Alrighty,

We've got two weeks to discuss some stuff that probably is better dealt with away from the table. Here are some of the things I'm looking at providing ya.

A list of contents of Run's 'Store'
I'll assume ya guys are taking 20's and going over every nook and cranny of the place. As such, I'll be providing a list of the items found and their approximate values.

The Cost of Repairing and Maintaining the Onyx Key
I'll provide an approximate cost of getting the ship up to par. This should help with planning for future endeavors. I'll also provide details, such as the ships compliment of crew, tonnage and the like. Plus, I hope to offer a ballpark figure of the cost to outfit her per month.

Payment for Excursion to Hoko
So, this little sequence was lost somewhere along the line but I don't think the party ever received payment. As such, each character received 50 gold for their time and the special mission they undertook. (If I'm misremembering this please let me know)

What other sorts of info will you guys be needing and what are ya looking at doing? I'm thinking that we'll have about a week pass in game or something like that.

I think knowing those those things, so far, will put us where we can figure out our next moves.



I do have one thing to say in regards to the Onyx Key:

Matt has provided us wiht the opportunity to go all Dread Pirate Roberts(Princess Bride), provided our housemate will allow us at some point to crew and sail her.

This seems too good to pass up IMO but how do we capitalize on that reputation is what I want to ask?

I reckon the Captain will be up early each morning, and down to the docks first thing, looking over the Onyx Key for a few hours every day. He's looking through a professional's eyes, his Profession: Sailor skill is 6. He'll do some basic repairs or maintenance, to the best of his ability (an excellent way to learn the vessel) -- whilst trying to retain the derelict look that has protected the ship over the many months before.

If he can convince others to join him, Morgan will teach basic seamanship skills, in relation to the specific ship. He asks Raylin/"Schlinn" for a letter identifying him (and any others that join him) as a crewman, in case folks on the docks come by asking questions.

When Morgan comes home for lunch each day, he'll try the puzzle (Disable Device = 11). After lunch and a brief siesta, he practices combat skills for at least an hour. For dinner he alternates between eating at home and going out to a pub -- checking out someplace different each time (starting at the Jug and Chuckle).

He'll also shop for a dose of BloodBlock (Adventurer's Armory) at the market.

Anyone going to assist in this? Morgan can't do it alone Wink [If so, give me your bonus on Disable Device. I'll take the highest bonus and add +2 for each character who has Disable Device and assists. I'll then calculate if and when the party solves the puzzle]

While we have a bit of time to spare.

I would like to consult the libraries of Fethra and and other scholars of the other realms about Tieflings, Lammasau(or however those 6 armed leader types are spelled), especially about magical abilities defences etc they may be able to call upon.

I will also research creating, controlling & dismissing portals/ gateways/ teleportation circles such and as the ones we saw in the water.

I also will begin looking for either a craftsman or magic item creator who can enchant my sword. If possible I would also like to see if a smith can add a Petrin coating to my weapon.

So now and then over the campfire the rest of Morgan's Mariners have seen Rhedoc tinkering with what looks to be the beginnings of a crossbow, made of the finest of woods. As the week passes, the crossbow takes shape, but it's no ordinary crossbow. It's a complicated mess of gears, sliding tracks and boxes that few could puzzle out, but he feels comfortable hefting the light but efficient looking weapon. (4 days)

He makes a 3 potions out of alchemical supplies with the remaining 3 days, all 1st level (assorted), and sells these at the market. (3 two-hour days)

At the market, he will also commission some cold iron and some petrin crossbow bolts (10 of each, should be 2 gp and 1.1 gp), and purchase some regular crossbow bolts (1 gp). He seeks out wizards and trys to obtain the 2nd level spell Detect Thoughts (20 gp).

With his remaining time, he will engage in two primary activities.

First, he will join Captain on his morning excursions and lend his mechanical eye towards the restoration of the ship, in particular strengthening and fireproofing it. He has some training in engineering (+5) and mechanical manipulations (Disable Device +12, Craft(WP) +10, Craft(Alchemy) +16; can raise the craft skills by and additional +5). He lends this same mechanical bent to solving the puzzle which Morgan is working on (Disable +12).

Second, he circulates around the market and temples of the Nightingale, looking for a disaffected, radical minded young acolyte to take up stewardship of the alter. If he successful in obtaining detect thoughts he will use it in this endeavor. He will try to recruit Irirangi in this endeavor; he figure's she used to be a disaffected, adventure seeking religious type, so she should be able to spot a kindred soul pretty easy. He will point out to her how this will be an excellent opportunity to study other religions, and how having a more static person of religious persuasion, especially one who embraces the god of magic, would be beneficial to their little collective. Failing this, he will go try to sell maintaining the shrine to likely candidates on his own (Bluff +6, Diplomacy +1). He notes to potential candidates how they can have complete control over their shrine, accommodations, and close access to study and converse with magical and fantastic creatures. Very, very close.

Evening,

First off, let's start with the info I promised at the beginning of this post.

A list of contents of Run's 'Store'

Gems: Within a trunk of stones, marbles and a large collection of broken seashells the party finds 450gp of assorted gemstones.
Tapestries: Unrolling a collection of musty canvases the party finds several tapestries. Most are worthless but one proves to be a valuable, although a bit gaudy. It's worth 1200gp.
Coinage: Throughout your search (in old socks, cracks in the shelves, old mason jars, etc.) the party finds numerous little bungles of shiny goodness. They total 1601gp in value.

The Cost of Repairing and Maintaining the Onyx Key]
The Onyx Key - Ship Specifications
Type: Caravel
Dimensions: 70ft long x 20ft wide
Tonnage: ~140 tons
Number of Masts: 3
Speed: 3mph (at x1 wind speed multiple)
Armament: None
Minimum Crew: 7
Max Capacity: 30

The Onyx Key Repair Costs & Launches
The ship's structure is in pretty good shape. There are several timbers that will need to be shored up or replaced. However, the ship lacks most of its rigging, sails and other components that either deteriorated due to the elements or thievery. The ship can be brought to see worthiness for around 2000gp.
The ship can carry two launches. Launches go for around 500gp each but Leanna found a merchant that will sell the part two for 750gp.

The Onyx Key Cost of Voyaging and Berthing
The cost of outfitting the Onyx Key for a month at sea is 300gp. This price includes all provisions needed to sustain the ship and crew. However, it does not include the cost of any trade cargo or the cost of hiring crew members which make, on average, 10gp per month.
Berthing the ship will cost 25gp a month. It is assumed that the majority of the crew takes their meals and lodging shore side.

I'll try to reply to the other sections as I am able Smile

Raylin/Shlenn is more than happy to provide such a letter. In fact, she has a law clerk, Tony Quiller, that she retains just for these sorts of things.

Alrighty,

There have been a few questions regarding what may or not be available in town. Whether or not your character actually purchases them will depend upon the funds of the party.

He'll also shop for a dose of BloodBlock (Adventurer's Armory) at the market.

I won't be making or selling the potions, as we've established I can't ever make a profit on them (explains why my alchemist is 65 and still essentially broke). I will spend the time instead adding a Petrin coating to Tanith's weapon, although I can't add the enchantment.

Yes, 10% cost of the entire weapon, including the cost of masterwork and any enchantments it may have.

Morgan is using the double-bladed dagger (Stan) in a dual-wield config with Ann (the black rapier). Since Stan is a light source, I reckon Morgan doesn't need a potion of Light -- it should go to the other human in the party (Iri) instead. Morgan has his eye on that potion of Rage, though...

Thanks for doing the accounting on this stuff!

For better security of the Onyx Key, Morgan is pushing to get the captain's stateroom ready for occupation ASAP: someone should be living on the ship at night. Morgan will camp out on the 'Key three nights the first week, to establish a presence, until the stateroom is comfortable enough to move into. He'll hang a whistle from the headboard of the rack (bed), and another by the stateroom door, for alerting the dock patrol -- in case intruders appear while he's there.

Also, Aryanne remember that using those spells to augment craft skill checks usually adds +10 to the roll. I do not know if Matt will go for that in this instance but I really really hope so!

Assuming it does how much/ and how quickly could the eligible repair work be done using that kind of magic? I know some of it will be straight replacements of the poor quality wood. which the spells we have will not help us with.

The various goods stashed in Runns store come to 3251 gp. How would the party like to devide this?
My two cents worth is we us it first to get the Oynx Key ocean ready, a little of what's left to the household account, and the rest devided evenly. Other thoughts?

Honestly as we are nowhere near 21 crew members to run the boat it is less necessary at this time. We may need to look seriously at sharing out that wealth or making an investment into an item we as the group feel like we need either for an individual (does the druid need dragon hide breastplate, does the alchemist need 2000 GP to get a ring of sustenance) Or an item that benefits the party (rope of climbing, sustaining spoon, improving security on the house or the boat)


A quick glance at my character sheet(so glad i keep it on an Excel file) says I am at about 2500 in gear and cash without the rope of winds (price unknown)/(plus the money I have distributed to NPC's that i hope pays off in either information or future crewmen. If you believe in WBL (including consumables used in the past) only 500 GP off what I should be at for 3rd and 3500 off of where 4th should be. BUT we have a staff of healing valued at almost 30,000 a relic weapon(cost unknown) and an unclaimed figurine of wondrous power 3800 GP. To average those into our group funds prolly puts us well beyond 6000 GP at 4th level on a per person average, the staff alone does it. Yes we have a large measure of wealth tied up into a few items which means they will be useful for long stretch of our careers but may mean we have lesser options in other areas unless we want to sell them.

Also am I right that only spell casters can use it? I was a little confused about the description, it sounded like only spellcasters able to cast the level of spells contained in the staff can use the staff?

Iri will be able to recharge it at lvl 6 as all of those spells are level 3 or lower for her.

staves are spell trigger activation items

Quote:
Spell Trigger: Spell trigger activation is similar to spell completion, but it's even simpler. No gestures or spell finishing is needed, just a special knowledge of spellcasting that an appropriate character would know, and a single word that must be spoken. Spell trigger items can be used by anyone whose class can cast the corresponding spell. This is the case even for a character who can't actually cast spells, such as a 3rd-level paladin. The user must still determine what spell is stored in the item before she can activate it. Activating a spell trigger item is a standard action and does not provoke attacks of opportunity.



Therefore Aryanne, Iri, and Talinth could all use the staff to cast cure serious wounds. Even though none of us can cast that spell yet. Depending on when you gain access to the particualr level of spell that is highest in the staff will determine when you could recharge it: Iri at oracle 6, you at druid 7, me at inquisitor 7

Rhedoc has 4983 worth of wealth. 2000 of this is the haversack, 380 in unprocessed alchemical minerals (from the cave), 760 in his repeating crossbow and 1436 in potions/poisons/alchemical items (mostly poisons),and 64 gp and 8 sp spending cash. This includes significant "earned interest" from crafting the poisons, potions, alchemical items, and masterwork weapon from raw materials.

Irirangi is at 950.48 gp worth of wealth, including 450.28 in spending cash, matega, pearls and sapphires. Her only item of note is the masterwork cold iron petrin nihowaha, 374 gp.

Does she? Paige may not have marked it down on her character sheet, which is what I'm going off of.

If she does, that puts her at 2050.48 gp cumulative.

This means that the raw materials for the crafted items amounts
to either 1/3 or 1/2 of the finished product, while I'm listing the cost for finished product. The difference is 682 gp "earned" by crafting my own items, although some of it isn't actually finished yet (some alchemical items, some of the poisons) - that would take about another week.

Time for another postings of replies. Sorry that I haven't gotten to all of this earlier but I've been pondering a few things. When answering something pretty specific, I'll try and quote the question and then provide my answer afterward. (I can only hope there aren't 19,002 more postings before I'm done Wink )

Regarding Puzzle Box
The week is almost over by the time the puzzle box yields up it's mysteries. The puzzle box contains 1 solitary ring which after some further work is found to be a Ring of Sustenance. Leanna also appraises the Puzzle Box and believes its worth 1,000 gp.
----

Status of Ship
I've been trying to take into account the skills and spells at your disposal when it comes to the ship. The cost of repairs given assumes that you are doing as much of the repairs yourselves as possible. It represents supplies, such as sail cloth and rope, that you cannot make yourselves.

Without knowing how much you will actually put into the boat at the moment it's hard to say how long it would take to make it sea worthy. However, for the interests of the game, let's say that it'll take two weeks without any additional help if paid in full. This does not include the time it will take to crew and supply the ship for any voyage.

The Capitan's stateroom (not very stately btw) is in fairly good repair and is inhabitable by midweek.

Dragonsong

I would like to consult the libraries of Fethra and and other scholars of the other realms about Tieflings, Lammasau...

I will also research creating, controlling & dismissing portals/ gateways/ teleportation circles such and as the ones we saw in the water.


Okay. The research allows you to learn the basic traits of the Teiflings and Lammasu. You also gain a generalized understanding of portals and what may give rise to them. [We've already spoken regarding the mechanics of this. Specific info will be available at the table.]

At the market, he will also commission some cold iron and some petrin crossbow bolts (10 of each, should be 2 gp and 1.1 gp), and purchase some regular crossbow bolts (1 gp).He seeks out wizards and trys to obtain the 2nd level spell Detect Thoughts (20 gp).


The cold iron and petrin are available. The Detect Thoughts spell is not.

Second, he circulates around the market and temples of the Nightingale, looking for a disaffected, radical minded young acolyte to take up stewardship of the alter. If he successful in obtaining detect thoughts he will use it in this endeavor.


This endeavor proves unsuccessful. You don't come across anyone that you believe would be satisfactory and/or pass muster with your housemates [Honestly, I'd rather this take place through RP at the table]

(Wall of text) get to know Raylin arraigning the shelves to create a little store front area, work area for Raylin ... After dinner I will check the bizare for ingrediants for my herbal stuff. Then before sundown try to strike up a conversation with the Dryad on the roof and take care of any plant stuff there.


Aariann finds Raylin isn't much of a conversationalist about herself. However, she is more than willing to talk about art and shows a remarkable understanding of Motopori tattoos (at least for a non-local). Still, you do get a chance to actually observe Raylin and it's pretty clear she has an entire network of individuals in her employ which allows her true identity to remain hidden from the masses. You are able to find your fill of ingredients for your herbal poultices (modified healers kit doses). The dryad is present and is often found tending her garden on the roof. She seems to be in deep mourning and not very talkative.

Matt, was the 50 gp for the adventure give to us at the last meeting with the captain at his house?


Nope. The 50 gp. was for the Hoko excursion. The trip to the edge was for Run. It wasn't a business arrangement. Run's friends helped equip you, with some gold and borrowed equipment, but that's it.


I hope I haven't missed anything... Let me know what else you'd like to discuss.

Umm we have a week for the druid to prepare read magic and decipher the words on the magic Matryioshka doll. Provided Damon is willing to do so.

Damon:

Damon, that's actually a Knowledge (Arcana) check.

Yeah, especially since you can also use Detect Magic.

The source of the spell is an "Arcane Mark" but you can't read what it says unless you guys also do the Read Magic thing on it.

From my reading, despite being an arcanist I don't believe that the alchemist specifically has a spell preparation benefit from a Ring of Sustenance. That is, only a wizard specifically has an 8 hours of rest requirement. Perhaps he functions more like a bard or sorcerer? I wasn't able to find specific clarification, however, so it's gm fiat.

In terms of who in the party benefits from the ring then? Probably the person with highest perception.

Since I didn't find the detect thoughts and remembered I can sell back my old weapons and armor, I would like to return to shopping for a wee bit more, looking for: alchemical allocation, see invisibility, spider climb.

Paige and I were talking this evening about what Iri would do during her down time. She mentioned she would probably circulate amount the Motopori community in Annanstrad, getting to know people and dispensing some curative magics (the implication was free of charge, but you would have to confirm that with her).

Read Magic reveals the following on the Arcane Doll:

For My Beloved Ekinushka*
Within Each Image Lies The Answer
When Your Old Enough You'll Understand
Then You'll Be Able To Resist

*Ekinushka is an archaic term of endearment used specifically between a mage and an apprentice when they are blood related. Prior to falling out of common vernacular, it was used by the royal mages of the Elor.

--> Once the spell is cast, the outer shell of the doll splits and folds back under it's base. A slightly smaller doll is revealed. The dolls hands are held slightly apart and it appears to be straining against the nothingness in between them. There is an intense look of concentration upon it's face.
