  • Earth will contribute her Library to his roll for another +1, there might be some relevant stuff in there.

    That got a crooked smile out of her. "I'm trying. I sure hope so."

    Couple of rules reminders so everyone knows the stakes:

    Regardless of the method you use, searching the Red Land for your destination [as opposed to colocating there directly, which you have no way of doing right now] will be an extended Stamina+Survival roll with various penalties and bonuses and a currently unknown target number.

    The mechanical effect of bringing Asyut along, which is optional, is to allow the primary actor 2 additional rolls on top of their Stamina+Survival rating.

    The mechanical effect of bringing a Shadow along, also optional, is to...

    Now we're gettin' somewhere. The Shadow replies:

    "The Scroll of Going Forth by Night is most precious. We will not discuss the remainder."

    "The blood cannot be denied. No contract or oath can overcome our Great Oath to Sutekh: blood for life. Payment for service. But you are cunning men. Help us hunt in the Red Land, and we need not drink of you."

    "We will guide you truly and let you do as you will. The master may know of the Hand of U'mat, but he does not speak while in henet. If you have a way of speaking to him, you may try. But

  • Reminder that Moonstone has Intelligence 1 and incredibly poor judgment!

    I'd like to fulfill my "teach a cabalmate about magic" Aspiration. I'll pick "learn something significant about the mystery Moros" as a new one.

    I keep wanting to highlight important words in my posts, Legend of Zelda style. When you enter a hidden chamber, your controller will vibrate.



    Nah, granting people magic stuff is under Prime for a reason. However, with his Occult (Five-Part Soul) specialty, Strife knows that some Weret-Hekau have experimented with removing a Sleepwalker's soul and grafting it onto a Sleeper whose soul has also been removed. That's something a Death mage could try, assuming you could find a Sleepwalker and didn't care about your Wisdom too much....

    Strife picks up on some of the details from his architectural training. Kemet had been under Persian rule for some 2 centuries before Alexander drove them out a few years ago, and the temple and town of Hibis were constructed early in this Persian period. What's strange is that the low chamber ahead of you matches the architectural style of a much earlier era, as far back as the New Kingdom of one thousand years ago. The design of this place is quite unlike the rest of the Hibis temple above it. It suggests that this place came first, and the temple was built later.

    Also notable is...

    Sorry for the delay y'all. If someone wants to offer the alternative terms discussed, go for it. You can also just kill and loot some vampires if you want, although they do have the homefield advantage. I encourage you to check in this thread before doing anything rash.

    Woland BTW, you guys do have torches with you because you bought some at the market as part of the supply run. If we go into initiative time, lighting one takes an action.

    Oh yeah: if you guys go the Colocation desert-jumping route, you may want to decide what you're gonna do about Asyut and whether you...

    Strife descends down into the tunnel and opens his eyes to the shadows. He does this so well, in fact, that he recovers 1 Mana. He then attempts to bind the Shadow-creature in its own dark aura, only to be countered successfully by Imhotep.

    Strife sees the subtleties of the shadows obscuring the hidden chamber. The narrow brick tunnel is lined with notches and carved signs that seem to have ritual significance. At the end of the tunnel is a low square room with more elaborate carvings on the solid stone walls. There may be painted details and colors that the shadows still obscure....

  • How about this: Earth will make a supporting teamwork roll for Mark dealing with IP (forcing doors seems like the best option IMO), and she'll invite Mark to support her working at the community garden with a Wits+Crafts (Woodcrafting) roll. Buddies reunited!

    ArchonAres I don't think so, actually. We recovered some alchemy potions from the trailer, but just the one athanor. Scout could always try Plumb the Fathoms at the church though.

    Arcanist I've got an idea for the garden as equipment. Can the Meditation/Meditative Mind system from CofD 75 and 46 apply to rolls to...

    Staying away from the others was a quiet way of indulging her Torment. After the Flux atavism brought on by the Firestorm, it was grounding to fall back into her pattern of alienation from others. Even Torment is more part of you than Flux, that's the lesson of the Furies.

    Yeah Exthalion has it (broadly) right, I'm sorry if I've been describing the situation poorly.

    There'd be time to cast Ban or another action between the darkvision spell and the shadowcrafting spell. The threat that you have someone who can and will control shadows could give you leverage. Or if anyone wants to amend their action, that's an option too.

    Hmm, okay, I was kind of expecting you would make a counteroffer or something, not attack the dude the other PCs were negotiating with. I'll reply later today once I'm free.

    Also reminder that Khvarenah had Time Sight up, which lets him react to things a second before they happen. He can jump in with a reflexive action or other quick response if he likes.

    Also, roll a Clash of Wills for Shadow Crafting.

  • Downtime plans: try to balance keeping up Vigilante with visits to the community garden to work on establishing a plot of her own, blissfully ignorant to the possibility of attracting violence to the garden because Darkstorm has been seen hanging out there. Is there an appropriate Crafts/Survival roll, target number, time per roll?

    Maybe a space of a few weeks would be a good timeskip? We could pick up in January, or do the obligatory Christmas/New Year special and learn the true meaning of something or other.

    Strife can hop down into the tunnel as well if you like, I don't want to leave you hanging. I assume he's heard what's being said out loud. And because of how Unbound cast his spell, Strife will be able to join the telepathy if he stands inside the circle of herbs, which he could very well do by accident.

  • I got nothin' for right now. Maybe a minor fulfillment of Alienated for hanging back and brooding while the others help each other?
