Shielding Alliance

where we were b4 last session

Just so I’m sure, a couple of weeks ago, we ambushed the ambushers, chopped off the hill giant heads, made a stretcher for the dead sorcerer, voted about going back to town via emails such as flying sparks and Leave it to a woman.. Along the way, the Alliance saw the lights of a caravan, Treveylan did sneaky-sneak, the party met a wealthy female merchant, Lady Safeton, and her 200 person entourage headed for Baldur’s Gate. Treveylan gave them some wine/gifts & we explain what we’ve learned, along with informing them of the death of the Elven lady, who Safteon knew and was sad to hear about. Their cleric used Speak With Dead to ask the sorcerer 4 or 5 questions, one of which he asked personally but did not share with us what the deal was. Through this spell, info on a Temple connection to a sheik-like figure was gained. (Its not a pasha, maybe a vizier?) We stayed with them for a little bit, but then broke camp and made for town.

At this point things get a bit fuzzy.

I’m not sure what time we arrived, but we did 3 things right away when we hit Hommlett: 1) stopped at Rufus & Burns to report in. we asked them (among other things) if they had heard of sheik-guy and if knew who our mysterious benefactor was. they answered ‘nay’ to both. 2) we stopped by the Druid’s Oyster Farm and pro-curred several pearls so as to identify stuff. 3) it was time to go to Meelab the MoneyChanger’s, and he showed us, among other things, a discounted spider cloak, tarantula model.

On the 13th, Brian sends out the list of gear, Gear and value, which gets revised later on, Bookkeeping, Shielding Alliance style , and then revised again Recalculating the recalculation: sans couverture, when its clarified that we do not actually own the spider cloak yet & Pertinax decides maybe its not the best idea to put on a cloak coming off a medusae statue in an evil temple. {I believe that you guys found the statues the Sunday I spent on the floor of Dan’s bathroom}

The human steel is alright but it is no match for the Fine Elven Steel is the first real ‘in game’ discussion about the treasure along with Roberto’s re-cap including frustration with the gifts. (Hopefully that 4,700+ will buy some serious goodwill down the road) This is apparently done late at night around a tavern table. Then we have discussion about when to return to the temple, “and then you could enlarge it during combat” which was Florent’s usual ‘let’s go now’ but then we focus on the medusae cloak again in Elven Rewind, ””Hell has three gates: lust, anger, and greed”, and Of identify and bad things .

From there we move onto talking about getting the spider cloak fund drive for the cloak, with Turtle trying to see if we can do it & then Florent listening to her suggestion via Baby Mama Drama to use Woe/Well spell, checking divinely to see if putting on the cloak is ok.

This is where we were before last session. Follow me so far?

so the cloak is cursed and Helm is wrong

We are still in town… Florent did some augury with Helm and had the following questions answered: Is the Cloak from the Medusa Statue cursed? (long story short…YES)

Should we head back to the Temple immediately? No.. (OOG: Helm thinks it wise to replenish our stocks and upgrade our gear, as we will need it to fight our enemies…) It would seem that Helm and the Wunderkind Florent differ in opinion and strategy. Florent still thinks that Helm can’t quite be right (can’t wait to see Helm smite him)

We will be staying in town for slightly more than a ten day for upgraded gear…

Pertinax wrote some spells in his book (with donations from the team):

Darkvision Knock Rary’s Mnemonic Enhancer

We also bought a Wand (Cure Light Wounds)

So, we are still in town…. waiting for our gear to be completed

Thanks for the recap.

ROBERTO: So, it was cursed. And I already was picturing Pertinax in his beautiful cloak of resistance. I think we should still grab the stuff in that room but then use augury to see if the identifies are giving out an erroneous signal. Just 5 more levels until Pertinax can do Analyze Dweomer!

Oh well. I might upgrade mine after I am out of debt. Thanks to all that donated to have the scrolls added to my spellbook.

BRIAN: Treveylan will probably ask for darkvision quite often so that he can scout ahead… His new upgraded armor will make him beddy sneaky… (or more so than before)

ROBERTO: That would be fine. Darkvision is one of those spells with decent duration at 1 hour per caster level. That would be 8 hours for the time being.

DAN: speaking of debt…...Trevaylan?

BRIAN: What about it? yeah he still owes money… but there was no constraints or limits as to when it needed to be paid back. And yes he upgraded his gear before paying back on the debt still outstanding

ROBERTO: I’m confused. What’s going on?

DAN: ooooooooooh, you’re in trouble…........

BRIAN: Hardly in trouble, I think.

Treveylan upped his armor before paying part of the debt down… though none of you would know this IN GAME… as I had mentioned it as a player afterward. I had nearly forgotten about the debt, but saw the note in my folder after the decisions were made.

I can always have his armor reduced to +1… paying back 2000 gp toward his debt.

[OOC: as there had not been a set time frame as to when debts were paid back, I thought it would be best to up his armor as he is taking on more of the Scout aspect and is sneaking ahead to search out the areas ahead]

ROBERTO: well… I may be remembering things wrong but when we voted on whether to allow party debt we also voted on when and how that debt would be repaid. We established that debt has to be paid as soon as possible and before you can spend any future shares of treasure, which is why Florent didn’t actually get any gold until the time that his debt was paid off.

Has this been changed since? How much does he owe? And the characters do have knowledge of how much debt the others have accrued. Pertinax keeps immaculate and meticulous books. It is I who doesn’t follow things as closely as he does.

DAN: The ensorcellment has started. Ending it now would ruin it.

ROBERTO: Indeed. These dealings will have to apply to future gold.

BRIAN: I had forgotten about the debt (player error) but as I was pulling out docs from my folder, saw the sheet I placed in there to remind me.

He owes 4041gp and will pay it all in full on his next cut (or as much as he can afford) (It was a player error, and I am sorry about that… it won’t happen again)

But as far as repaying the gold back right away, I do not recall ever settling on a time frame. Unless this was decided while I was in Florida for my brothers wedding back in February.

CHRIS: The old ‘I forgot I was in debt’ trick. Likely story. Not to be confused with the “Don’t worry, I’ve got your back, Furnock” until you remembered your alignment. Sounds awfully republican to me. Are you sure Treveylan’s not from Texas?

Kudos to the DM for stirring up the pot.

Perhaps you should write down player debt somewhere in the first ten pages of your character sheets, instead of the pps 31-40

Florent says, “Leave it to the nobility to forget ‘e’s in debt, and then question when ‘e ‘as to pay it back. So rich that trivial things like 4000 gold slip your mind? Where is the ‘onor?”

That is funny stuff.

BRIAN: And to clarify… I said I would go with him, but realized that there might be a better way to go about getting into the building.

Furnock went ahead without him, without looking to see if Treveylan was on board or not. So all the blame is not with Treveylan…

but he will accept all the blame for everything up to this point

ROBERTO: Somehow I don’t think this was covered in the recap. what building? what are you guys talking about?

BRIAN: Oh yeah… we were going to see if the crooked Shop keep, raymoss, might have had anything to do with the temple. Furnock was going to sneak/break in, but Treveylan decided it would not be wise to break in. Perhaps a key could be found?

In any case Treveylan had a few drinks at the inn, while Furnock went on with is business. Furnock got poisoned by a trapped box, but survived and had to sleep it off for 7 days to regain his ability.

ROBERTO: What are the chances that the authorities or raymoss noticed this little side trek by Furnock?

BRIAN: Not sure about the authorities… but Raymoss has not been in town for a while

hello there cursedy

Treveylan: “I was merely stating a point, I am not angry. I have no problem with shelling out coin if that be the case… as I agree to better know the item is best for all. Don’t your magics tell you all there is about the properties of the item you look at Pertinax? As you are a great mage, who studies the Art, I would think you would be able to assess any item we come across.”

“I don’t know if Helm’s priests will be able to fully analyze this dweomer (OOC: Get it? analyze dweomer?). We might need either Rufus or someone at the Gate or in the Deep who can help us.”

Turtle nods. “Actually I meant having Florent use a divination to auger {OOC: augury, get it?} with Helm to see whether putting on the cloak would bring Weal or Woe.”

“Treveylan, to answer your question, the Art enchanment that I use to identify the properties of magical items is a very simple spell that even apprentices know. With practice you learn more about the auras but if someone attempts to hide a curse on an item it is hard to detect with such a simple spell. You need a more powerful divination to know for sure.”

OOC:Some cursed items are what they are and as such can be identified with the first level spell without difficulties. Some appear as something useful with a simple identify though. There is a 1% per caster level chance of catching such hidden curse with identify. That leaves Pertinax with a mighty 8% chance of catching a hidden curse. Analyze dweomer will catch them but that’s a 6th level spell. Market price to get someone of high enough level to cast it for us is 660 gp without counting any market effects.

”’Ow I love le drama! This group is never dull, praise be to ‘Elm.” Turning to the Medusa cloak Florent pretends to study it. “Oui, I could ask for ‘Elm for general guidance regarding cloak. I also ‘ave greater depth of prayer to get more specific advice regarding putting on cloak, given time to prepare.”

trying to buy Furnock a new cloak

n 6/19/06, Roberto Vargas <rlvargas0> wrote:

I also took out the cloak of arachnida, which it turns out we do not have
(silly me).

hey, points for the silence-silence effort. I’m sure Chris was proud.

Furnock now has 4188.8 for his frilly shirt, booze and the kind of women Florent wishes he was getting it on with. Not enough for that cloak of tarantula he had his eye on though.

At a lull in the meal, Turtle excuses herself and goes outside. A few minutes later she walks in, her hands holding something. She opens them up to reveal a tiny captured spider, letting it crawl around her hands and onto the table. “I think it wise to see if we can get Furnock that magical spider cloak. For starters, the things is discounted 2,000 gold only because its furry. Since it lets him go onto walls at will, we sadly have more need for that Rope of Climbing.” A mock dramatic sigh here. “Selling the rope would bring us {60% of 3,000 gp} and with Furnock’s current amount left over, plus whatever loot he is still holding onto, should get us at least half-way. More if he’s been gambling lately.” A quick wink.

OOG: Furnock’s sheet lists 1,683 GP + 12 PP + a ‘flawed diamond’ for 1,000 gp, so he does have half just by himself.

“Given how close he is, plus how this cloak will not only let him move around webs, but actually cast one too- as well as help keep him safe from spider bites- I’m making a motion that we kick in to get him the cloak. It fits both his style and expands our tactics.”

ROBERTO: OOC:I think it’s worth considering but Luke needs to first decide whether he is going to use all of the gold he has accumulated to buy the cloak. Chris already said that Florent will pitch in his extra gold for whomever needs it. Of course, Pertinax doesn’t have any extra gold.

DAN: He also needs to decide if we wants to be caught dead in public wearing the wretched thing.

LUKE: I’m imagining the spider cloak sorta like a giant furry pimp’s cloak. Which is right up Furnock’s wardrobe. All Steam ahead for the spider cloak please. My character vision for Furnock is to get him into more attck angles so he can try to push foes towards our shield wall and act as an auxiliary to the mage… how that comes about if leave in your hands..

unpointed anger

During his initial rambling, Turtle waits for Treveylan to finish, although there are a few times that she appears to grip her chair extra hard and at one point she does roll her eyes. However, she says nothing, shifting to watch bemusedly as Pertinax arches his eyebrow. After Treveylan clarifies his position, Turtle leans back, letting the elf respond to the statement about his abilities.

{insert reply from Roberto about Pertinax’s studying the Art}

She sips her water slowly as he talks, and clears her throat when he is done. “I believe Pertinax was commenting earlier on your remark towards my shields.” A tap on an outstretched foot onto one of the spikes. “It seemed somewhat disparaging and I’m not sure why it was said, given all that they’ve done. You’ve spoken more eloquently to merchants, dear Treveylan. My shields and honor deserve as much consideration.” Turtle gives as much of a bow from her chair as she can. “Do I take care of my weapons, as Helm teaches? Certainly. And I do indeed feel that we should continually have our items enchanted further, as faith can alone does not hold the line.” She flips an empty goblet over in her hand, catching it neatly as beads of water splash the table.

Her finger wags at the half-elf. “I’m pretty sure we ALL were thinking that there was something amiss with that room. Furnock isn’t the only one with a sense for traps. Often plain old wisdom will do the trick nicely, thank you very much. And this room does not seem right.” Motioning to the cloak again, “If this had come off a dead Temple denizen, who was wearing it, then that would make sense. If it was hidden inside a secret chamber, then that would make sense. Or even if it was just hanging in a room of a higher-echelon follower, then that would make sense. But left out in the open with other free treasure, as ‘gifts’ from our gods?” She shakes her head fiercely. “I’m sorry, but that explanation makes about as much sense as you going back alone.” She holds a hand up to be able to continue.

“While the devil light was no doubt a tricky adversary, I ask you all to question whether it alone would be the sole guardian of not only this cloak, but 9 other magical items. Was it really powerful enough to serve that role? She shakes her head again. “Much in the Temple is not what it appears to be, and what could at first look to be good with casual observation may in fact be a trap. You say the room was a trap, I say the cloak itself is the trap. Hopefully we can learn which before I try it on- perhaps with the aid of a Helm divination?” A look towards Florent.

"“Hell has three gates: lust, anger, and greed”
wherein our heroes discuss the safety of a big pile of magic items left in an evil elemental temple

“So as you can see…. we have a ton of gear we have left behind, and may have given up to the Temple of Evil…”

OOC: For the sake of having some roleplay ‘momentum’ for next session, I’m going to pretend Treveylan is making this comment in game.

Turtle frowns and again pokes at the cloak, this time with her spoon. “How could we give up something that was not ours to begin with? Surely you don’t believe they just left this highly magical piece of defensive-wear lying around?” She waves one arm around for added emphasis. “Which is more likely: that the denizens of the Temple, knowing we’d come through that area, decided to essentially give us over 10 pieces of magical aid to help us defeat them,” she moves the other arm, “or this is yet another deception designed to trick us somehow.” She throws her spoon near the fork.

“My father used to give my sisters and I advice he learned from running the family business. And one of those was, ‘If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is, so run the other way.’ I say the cloak is trapped in some manner. If there is other magic beyond the monacle which can determine its true purpose, than I say we spend gold to be certain its safe. If not, then I will volunteer to try the thing on first.”

Treveylan, “Just about ALL that we have found has been from that Temple… whether it is the coin you have procured to purchase your beloved shields, or your armor. If you are to argue that the Evil is there, yes I agree. If you are to say that the items were left as a potential trap, I can also agree with you, as I was first to consider it. But perhaps the items are also trophies of the innocent that have been slain in the many years of war and battle that was sustained here. But to allow them to fall into the Temple’s hands and their followers is a far greater detriment to our cause. If we can rid them from the Temple, then we should do so. If you do not think we should, then I will do it alone. But if that is the case, do not ask for a copper of their value if you did not want to go after them in the first place.

I do not think they merely left the items behind… it would seem that many factions in this temple are at war with each other. Some beasts may keep others at bay, while the same said beasts and enemies may not have any need for these items or said gifts. My father and clan had many sayings, but one that sticks to my mind is this:

Use what you can along your path, what you may find may be useful, and if it is so, perhaps the gods have placed it there for your benefit. Perhaps not, but that is the fate of the gods to decide.

I come from a place far harsher than this, and we have used what we can from the earth and from our surroundings. If we are to leave it to our enemies, then we may fall to the said gifts that may have been provided for us. That above all would be pure folly.”

Didius is furiously scribing on a piece of parchment.

Pertinax arches an eyebrow.”Before we let our tempers get the best of us let’s remember that the statues were not unguarded. There was that creature of light, the will of the wisp, which is very hard to get rid of unless you have the right spells and the right arcane might behind your magenars.”

“In any case, it does seem strange that such a powerful item is left in that room. I do not have the necessary spells to pry further into the cloak but it would be useful to ask a more experienced wizard to do so on our behalf. Of course, gold is going to be involved.”

In the hall of the Mountain King
list of magical things laying around

Here is the list of Statues and their respective loot (with magical aura):

Beholder Tube (Minor Abjuration); inside tube (Minor Abjuration) Blue Dragon Box (Moderate Conjuration) filled with gems Fire Giant Spear (Minor Transmutation) Manticore Crossbow (Moderate Transmutation) Medusa Cloak of Resistance + 5 Mummy Staff (Moderate Abjuration) and vial (no magic) Ogre Mage Pendant (Moderate Evocation) Rakshasa Ring (Moderate Divination) Wight Urn (no magic); inside Urn (Faint Conjuration)

BRIAN: So as you can see…. we have a ton of gear we have left behind, and may have given up to the Temple of Evil…

ROBERTO: Interesting. Another thing it could be is some form of complex puzzle. Maybe we need to take the things in an order and if we don’t some creatures come to life or some such. That would explain why such a nice cloak would be just hanging on a statue. The other possibility is that it’s a real medusa who happened to have a cloak of resistance who then got turned to stone somehow but the cloak resisted the effect.

Bookeeping, Shielding Alliance style

OOC; the Cloak of Arachnida (Tarantula model) was not part of the spoils, but rather a discounted (by 2,000) item that Meelub had. In game, all this discussion occurs in the evening so that cloak is not his just yet. Also, Turtle had asked Pertinax to explain to Furnock why getting the hand crossbow would be an excellent idea.

Turtle raises a cup of water towards the Elf and then at Treveylan. “A fine piece of math you two. Let’s me focus on the fighting.” Draining the cup. “So the human sword goes onto the pile with the bracers, the dagger, funny walking shoes, etc. I do say that a missile-shooting, wall crawling, Furnock could really give us a tactical advantage. Frilly shirt or not.” A wink in the rogue’s direction.

“But I don’t advise keeping that other cloak.” Poking the garb from the medusa statue with a salad fork. “It is too powerful an item to be found so easily. Why would it be left out in the open, unguarded? Why wasn’t it at least worn by the enemy?” She shakes her head. “I’m not an expert in magic but any means, but it seems far too easy won.” She looks around for agreement. “Just as the side of good advances truth, evil uses deception as a weapon. Wisdom says this item is a trick at best. A trap at worst.” She throws her fork at it. “Burns should look at it before one of us puts it on. After Helm, caution is an adventurer’s best friend.”

Florent’s eyes grow large once again at the prospect of his debts being paid off and actually receiving a share of treasure again: “Oh mon Dieu! Praise be to ‘Elm! But no, gold is no why I adventure. I ‘ave come to believe that ‘Elm will provide all I need through doing ‘is will. I will live on spoils of Tempel, and blessings of ‘Elm. Speaking of ‘Elms blessings, I ‘ave ‘eard of blessing to make shield sacred. Mine already glows and seems to give me extra divine power to turn undead, but the more blessings the better, say moi. [OOG: I get a +2 bonus to turn already, but to be honest I can’t remember what its from, or if I ever knew. Check with DM] Other than blessings of ‘Elm, and respectful tithing to ‘Elm, I ‘ave no need of my share of gold. Give it back to party for group or individual use. When I find another gift of ‘Elm in Tempel like my trusty ring and pretty cloak, you can count my party contribution against what I would owe for claiming treasure.”

Looking off towards the direction of the Temple Florent frowns, “Let us no delay, though. I concede that we are stronger for ‘aving returned to ‘Omlette, but I ‘ave no doubt Tempel is stronger aussi. We must go back toute suite!”

The human steel is alright but it is no match for the Fine Elven Steel.
in character discussion about findings and a recap

Looking over the spreadsheet that Treveylan has provided, Turtle nods, mulling over the list. “Well Pertinax, will you still want to use this ‘shoddy’ human longsword, or add it on the sell pile so we can get 4,157.5 gp and you can continue with your Elven birthright?’ A quick smile.

Pertinax takes a sip from his goblet of wine. “Indeed, Turtle. While I may have come to appreciate the pragmatic value of human instruments I rarely find myself close enough to an enemy to use this finely crafted human sword, thanks to the shield wall. I believe it is best to sell it so we can get enchantments that we may use.”

Flipping over a coin. Turtle asks, “I still do not understand what the Calimshan figure the dead sorcerer told us of has to do with all of this. Or what question that woman’s cleric asked of him. I would think any caravan with 200 people would be more willing to share, particularly after the gifts of wine and that worthless necklace.” A wink at Treveylan. “Thoughts?”

“You mean Tharizdun, god of Madness? Or the Pasha of <insert>? This is strange indeed but we won’t be able to solve this particular puzzle unless we find more pieces in the Temple.”

Didius also sips from a goblet of wine. It seems like she is not quite comfortable yet with the group or is far less gregarious than most bards seem to be. “I am composing a ballad, or at first I thought that would be enough to cover the exploits of my dear brother. After spending just one day with all of you I can already tell this will be an expansive work. Probably more than one.”

She then rests both elbows on the table and leans forward.”Perhaps you can share with me your adventures so far?”

OOC:Don’t. Just let me know what you do not share. In the meantime here is an OOC recap for the benefit of Chris and Luke. Treveylan could not find any evidence of the missing hijackers. After cataloguing the loot Treveylan did find a bag with something squirming inside. Inside the bag were three sets of shoes that walk in pairs and leave deep tracks. These were the missing cultists. Since going back on the road would speed us up we decided to head towards Hommlet, spend the night there and then head back to the Temple. We were carrying the sorcerer’s body back with us for Florent to use his spell on. One the way we noticed a caravan heading towards us. The majority of the party hid behind the tree line and Treveylan skulked closer. Sharp eyes on the caravan noticed the half-elf being all sneaky-like. So he steps out and it turns out that this is a merchant caravan from Baldur’s Gate carrying the very succesful Lady Safeton. They stopped and we came out, leaving the body behind, to chat for a while (two hours, and I’m sure Florent was sulking the whole time). Treveylan gives Lady Safeton some gifts to soften her up for some future project or something. First, he gives her some wine from the evil temple. So far so good. Then he pulls out the necklace with fire rubies, while Pertinax is busy weezing behind the trees, and gives it to her. Granted, Pertinax thought it was worthless and gaudy but the last time he thought a piece of jewelry was worthless it turned that that humans value gaudiness and big ass jewels, which these ones were. OOG knowledge, it was worth 4700 gp. Treveylan thinks it was worth the price to build good will with the Lady.

Anyway, back to the story, the caravan moved on and we had to camp because we were exhausted. Nothing happens and we move on to town were the first visit is to Rufus and Burne followed promptly by a visit to Meelaub. Meelaub has some nice stuff in stock, including a fantastic Periapt of Health +6. Big pimping with a spinning rim and everything. So, we were discussing what to do with the swag. Pertinax is in favor of using whatever party funds we have undivided right now to acquire said Periapt and give it to the party tank. Others think it might be best to just divide treasure as usual and each one get what they need. We do have some very nice and pricy items in a cloak of resistance +5 and a ring of evasion. With Dan’s blessing I may try to set a market price on the animated shoes using the guidelines in the DMG.

$ stuff

also it does not include the Myriad spells (from scrolls) that Pertinax has on his elvishness.

SMGthere is a list somewhere right? anyone have a ballpark figure?

Brian, thanks for doing the lists. For the record, I was able to see the screenshot. :) It seems like we’ll definitely sell one of the hand crossbows and leather armor, the dagger, both bracers, and eventually the 2-handed flail. This is 20,431.

For the record, Furnock bought one of the Leather Armor +2’s already, so that needs to be taken off and the corresponding gold added to the party trough.

Man, selling stuff for 50% off blows! What was the deal Meelab made with us for higher? Anyone have that?

Money-wise, I’m thinking it makes sense to keep either the Ring of Evasion or the Cloak of Resistance, but not both.

BRIAN: Well… for Pertinax’s amount of Spells he has “held onto” I would guess a few Thousand in the till… some of them are pretty expensive spells…

And I listed ALL items for everyone to see what was happening… that way it does not come as any surprise to anyone.

I left all of the items in for simple calculation purposes… nothing more.

And if I recall, there was not really any deal for higher priced items. We could sell things at 60% for things 3,000gp and lower (and buy at 40%?? though I may most likely be wrong on the buy aspect)

ROBERTO: > Man, selling stuff for 50% off blows! What was the> deal Meelab made > with us for higher? Anyone have that?

Indeed. I’m glad Treveylan is on the case.

Money-wise, I’m thinking it makes sense to keep either the Ring of Evasion or the Cloak of Resistance, but not both.

I’m not so sure. It really depends on if anyone is interested. Pertinax, for example, is very interested in the cloak. The ring is a very, very nice magical item and it might make more sense to hold on to this items now. Getting them at 50% value could be too hard to pass up even if you end up in debt.

Another thing is that I really think that Preiapth of Health +6 is a very worthwhile item. I think we should attempt to get it and then give it to one of the tanks, probably Turtle because she is always in the front line.

With expensive items liek that pooling resources is the only way we’ll be able to get them for now.

More ROBERTO: I made some adjustments to the spreadsheet that Brian sent out with the loot. The price for the ring of command and for the shoes is included in this one, plus the cloak of arachnida. I also made the assumption that the flail is +1. If it’s not we can adjust this easily.

His Elvenness has learned something from the Boy of Helm and has decided to take on heavy debt if no one else wants to stake a claim on the cloak of resistance or the ring of evasion. He will owe the party quite a bit as you can see from the spreadsheet. Furnock would have gotten some debt too but since Florent finally had some gold he paid back the remainder of his debt and Furnock was able to pocket some gold because of it. The final cash amounts to Florent, Sulmia, Turtle and Treveylan include Florent’s debt payment.

So, Sulmia kept the boots and got 5019 in cash equivalent to spend. Turtle and Treveylan kept nothing and have 11951.4 to spend in gold equivalent. Florent has 5629.8 to spend after paying his debt and keeping the cloak of protection. Furnock kept the armor, crossbow, cloak of arachnida and ring of command and has 1030.5 to spend on a new frilly shirt. Pertinax kept the cloak of protection +5, ring of evasion, the spell scrolls and now owes 11397.1 to the other 5 party members. He is going to sell his current cloak of protection +1 to be able to get some gold to eat and to transcribe spells to his spellbook. He now has another mouth to feed.

ROBERTO via Recalculating the recalculation: sans couverture For the time being let’s not count the cloak from the medusa (sounds much more ominous that cloak of resistance +5) which no one is going to don for now until we figure this out better. I also took out the cloak of arachnida, which it turns out we do not have (silly me).

Without the cloak of resistance Pertinax’s debt is much lower and as such the hit on everyone else’s pocket is smaller. Florent can still clear his debt and has some gold left to tithe and eat and such (4057 gp). Sulmia has 3406 gp and 3 sp to spend (she made out like a bandit with those fantastic boots). The Half-Blood Prince (henceforth known as HBP) and Turtle actually end up with about the same amount of gold as before because Pertinax’s debt was keeping them down. 11406.3 for each. Furnock now has 4188.8 for his frilly shirt, booze and the kind of women Florent wishes he was getting it on with. Not enough for that cloak of tarantula he had his eye on though.
