More Questions than Answers

Post Thu Jun 23, 2011 6:36 am

There seem to be a few questions/proposals floating around that need resolving before we can move things forward:

1. Are you going to head out now, or tomorrow morning?

2. Are you going to return to the Northridge farm and/or Marketstone, or press-on in the Coastwood?

3. If you're going to continue in the Coastwood, are you planning to return to the place where you found the scrap of yellow cloth and attempt to follow any subsequent trail, or are you going to try and find the bandits mentioned by the old man?

4. Are you going to take Jumbles with you?

Paladin pouts, goes to hug his pal Barnie, but then clearly thinks better of it.

OOC: I am for heading out in the morning, pressing on in the Coastwood, following the yellow cloth trail, and taking Jumbles.

OOC: Seconded, especially if we can stash stuff here/nearby. BTW, are there any training rules/house-rules that we should be anticipating as we approach 2nd? I would hate to spend our monies only to find out we will be needing it to pay out for training up.

Otherwise, back to IN CHARACTER:
Nivek nods in agreement.

I'm ready to leave now or in the morning. Go back to where the north trail and the piece of cloth and follow it as best we can. I don't care if we take jumbles or not. I don't mind leaving some of the coin here, but I plan to take as much of my share of the gold as I can with me to buy my way out of tight scrapes. Or maybe the old man has some gems he can trade us for the gold.

I'm not going to enforce any requirement to train in terms of levelling-up. Once you hit the required number of experience points, you'll level-up 'automatically'. Even if it's mid-dungeon.

However, I will allow you to trade gold for XP on a 1:1 basis, but this will require a trainer. In simple terms, you pay the trainer a certain amount of gold, and in return he provides you with the corresponding amount of training/experience. This you'll need to do back in a town.

Err ... no.


Sergeant Tannen - there appears to be a consensus that you should return to the piece of yellow cloth and try and follow any subsequent trail. I just need a definitive management decision on: (a) whether you leave now or tomorrow morning, and (b) whether you'll take the faithful Jumbles.

Perhaps we would leave Jumbles with the old man - didn't he mention the possibility of some marshy land between here and the tower? Jumbles wouldn't fare too well in a swamp.

As for when we leave, I don't ink there's any reason to wait around... Let's go now!

OOC: Assuming order is given to move out...

IC:

Hiker grabs his things, thanks the old man again for his help and hefts his pack back on his back and strings his bow for the journey ... waiting for instructions on where he is to be in the marching order.

"Aye, we can go when all are ready", Nivek makes sure all his gear is packed up properly.
