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