Good evening,

I've spent the better part of the week thinking about last Saturday's session. Simply put, I did not foresee what ended up occurring after the reception of the note from the Onyx Key and I handled it badly. I realize now that in my rush to avoid mass combat and keep my plot concept viable, I made some bad DM calls that were both unfair and questionable. For this, I apologize.

I have tried to figure out a solution that would make all involved happy and not significantly break with the flavor that I have set up for other parts of the campaign. Ultimately, I have failed to come up with just such a solution.

As such, I would humbly ask you guys to allow me to take a mulligan and simply erase the latter part of the session. Basically we'd start the session at the Kuna's table with the note never having arrived.

I have never had to do this before, I don't like it and I hope never to have to do it again. I know you guys expect more from your DM and I'm going to try my hardest to come closer to meeting those expectations in the future.

As an aside, I'd like to say thanks to Damon for his assistance in looking for a resolution and to Dragonsong's for calling me out on some of the bad calls and missed opportunities.

It seems between shapechanging, weather controlling and aquatic powers, it would be a relatively trivial thing for Ari to escape, assuming she doesn't get immediately overpowered. A single, isolated player going up against an unknown number of odds is likely to die. But, then again, you can hand wave it, say "forces here are larger then you think you can possibly deal with; escape or hand over your character sheet". I'm happy either way.

Alternatively, we have a scroll of teleport amongst us that we can use to get to the ship, so that Ari wouldn't have to face the threat alone. But I don't know if that would help your situation.

Tangaroa,

Thanks for your suggestions and willingness to be flexible. I think having the situation never arise is the best fix.

Also, when did you guys get a scroll of teleport? I've searched the boards and, while there is a request for it from you in the "Outfitting in Port Edgeward" I don't remember granting this request. Granted, it could have happened at the table and somehow slipped my mind...

I bought one for Ana, in case she needed to use it to escape her father. She didn't, so I assume she still has it tucked away in her robes somewhere.
