    It's a little over two days by foot back to Ravenskird, even if Ludo leaves now. I fear the ship may have already sailed on sabotaging it before it gets finished... Though soon enough afterwards and I suppose it shouldn't hurt anything scheme-wise. Might even be easier since they'd have less to do around the bridge. That said, if Ludo tries now, is caught, and Makeda is there this time, it goes from a bad thing to an incredibly bad thing.

    Roll-wise, what would it take to sabotage the bridge so it fell apart the next time anything more heavy than a halfling tried to cross it?

    There's also the option of us buying a saw, though if Ludo is caught with something like that, there's no trying to explain it away. Also, with it just being rope holding much of it together, I'm not sure how much advantage that would offer over just a dagger and a sawing motion.

    Speed.

    I'd take another Trade (Mining) roll, although I'd like to get a sense of how Ludo's going about it.


    So looks like we have a return expedition to Ravenskird for Ludo, and a trip to Caerfort for Adelbert and Daniele (buddy movie road trip!). What's everyone else going to get up to?

    Ludo's top priority is the book, though - I assume that we won't be doing anything with it for the 4-5 days the sabotage will take? We're waiting for Hieronymous to be able to run away, right?

    Caerfort's 8 squares from Manann's Keep to Ravenskird's 7. Adelbert and Barbaro will be on horseback so may make the round trip to Caerfort faster than Ludo can to Ravenskird, but not by much. In the meantime, my impression was that Elsa wants to show Hieronymus the book but not open it - not until they can get out to the shrine, anyway. Sentinel can confirm or correct me on that one.

    Elsa keeps trying to tame and bind her familiar, practicing her battle magic, and reading the Witch Hunter's Handbook. (No need to describe to me the content of the Witch Hunter's Handbook; just give me the info on a need-to-know basis if I ever have to deal with witch hunters in the future.)

    She also reads the late Beatrix's books and the books salvaged from the Lost Library in search of ways to block or contain magic (Dhar especially): perhaps we can prep the Caerfort shrine some more.

    If needed, AK (Magic) 55: (d100)[68]
    Fortune: (d100)[90]


    @ TheSummoner: Hey, I seem to remember that according to Sieghard, his warm, cozy wolf skin is here in Manann's Keep?

    ...no reason.

    Sieghard doesn't really contribute much to book research, so he'll be heading back to Painford once his business here is done. Here's a quick to-do list.

    Sieghard wants to find and talk to Al-Makir after we'really done with Sforza. He needs 60gc from his funds to pay for this month and there's another thing he wants to bring up IC once the withdrawal is done.

    We need to get Viggo a good disguise. Also, I never got an answer for how long Elsa's hair dye would last. If it washes out quickly, we may be able to use that.

    He wants to find a small wooden chest, just big enough to hold the coins and papers we plan to plant on Fischwillen.

    And he wants to borrow enough paper and ink from Adelbert for 15 pages of whatever. That should be more than enough, even if our luck is terrible with the forgery rolls.

    He also would prefer to keep Ludo close until we've finished with Fischwillen. He's needed for the letter at the veryear least.

    Yes, if I'm remembering correctly, Sieghard promised to show Elsa how warm it is. Add that to his plans.

    Yeah, the two quotes pair pretty well with each other.

    A quick google gives me no reliable sources, so let's do things the WFRP way and say it comes out in 2d10 days, rolled after application. If you have a bath like some kind of decadent nobleman and scrub with soap or lye or something then you can knock a separately-rolled d10 off the total.

    Hmm... and I'd that a cumulative 1d10 dediction? If Viggo scrubbed himself raw and tookeep multiple baths, would that be 1d10 off the duration for each bath, or just a one time deduction?

    Probably better to have a wig either way since it seems like Ludo wants to leave to help with the book as soon as the parts he is 100% required for are done and that would mean Viggo doing a bit more than originally planned, but it would be good to know.

    Definitely a wig then. Bad rolling on the dye could cause a lot of problems. And with a wig, he has the excuse of Adelbert's play.

    It's just a detail, but I'm still wondering - is Elsa supposed to bow to Sforza, or make a military salute? Is he more her liege, or her commander?
    There's not a very fine distinction between the two, particularly out here in the Border Princes. I'd say it probably comes down to whether Elsa considers herself more of a soldier in the army or an advisor at court.

    Quick question.

    The example for Pavises (Old World Armory p32) mentions them being most commonly used in Tilea and the actual real world word derives from the name of a city in Italy where I'm assuming they originated. Though they're most common in Tilea, would they be the sort of thing that Sieghard would be aware of, or is that the sort of thing that would require a Common Knowledge roll and/or Common Knowledge: Tilea?

    Only because it's relevant to the IC conversation which is also in spoilers. It was actually the main reason I wanted to talk to Al-Makir. Though if you ruled Sieghard needed CK: Tilea, I could've always taken the skill next time xp was given out and brought it up after that.

    Also, spoilers are fun.

    Works a bit manic at the moment guys so posting over this week may be a little sporadic, I'll try to keep up to speed!

    Plans for the next few days include:

    • Viggo will give Ludo a 'lift' to Ravenskird on Magnus to speed things up if required? He'll drop Ludo off on near the outskirts of town in the evening and wait for Ludo to do his midnight sabotage in a prearranged out of the way meeting spot.. Basically Viggo is Ludo's get away driver!
    • He'll also see if he can find the following in Mannans Keep i) A half decent 'believable' wig ii) An eye patch iii) Knuckledusters
    • He'll futilely attempt to train the untrainable, to teach the unteachable and to educate the un.. you get the idea


    Rolls

    Gossip Test For stuff he wants:
    FEL 48 +10Mastery - (1d100)[65]
    Re-roll - (1d100)[51]

    Animal Training Test:

    "You'll not go anywhere near Painford," Sieghard said, sternly. "No one can see either of you. If you want to go with him so he doesn't have to walk the whole way, that's fine, but as far as anyone needs to know, the two of you will have been with me the entire time."
    I don't quite understand the plan... how are they going to get to Ravenskird if not through Painford?

    If you could lay it out for me step by step to make sure I don't misunderstand that would be very useful.

    I had imagined they would just pass around the outside of the village without actually entering it. Is that not doable?

    If that doesn't work, we'll have to all go together (scrapping Sieghard's visit to Rivermouth unfortunately) and have the two of them slip off on their own after that. We can't have them appear in Painford without Sieghard, disappear, and then reappear, possibly before Sieghard even arrives... Way too suspicious.

    Oh and one thing I should mention - of all of you I believe only Elsa owns a tent? You should be aware as you all dash off on these multi-day trips - particularly ones where you go around/through towns rather than stopping in them - that it's autumn now, and the weather is cold and getting colder. You have about a month left until real winter and at that point there may be mechanical penalties for sleeping in the open.

    Hmm, now that I think on it, let's get LeSwordfish and Northern Lad's input before deciding if we split up and have them go around the outside or all go together and have them sneak off afterwards.

    Because Aisha is, or atleast was there and this is the first chance Sieghard will have had to check in on her.

    If necessary, here's a gossip roll to try to locate her when he gets there, or failing that, find out what happened to her.
    (1d100)[92] vs 39
    (1d100)[76] Reroll if needed.

    Those were terrible rolls!

    These two things are not mutually exclusive. I would say Macedonia is probably the nearest real-world equivalent.

    That means a wait of at least a day - more if NorthernLad can't find time away from work as he's warned us. I'm happy to wait if you guys want to talk it out but it seems a fairly trivial decision.

    Because Aisha is, or atleast was there and this is the first chance Sieghard will have had to check in on her.
    Is that something an NPC said or just a guess? Just want to check I haven't forgotten something.

    I don't have a problem with going around the outside of town? If thats how cautious we want to be. Ludo and I are happy to trust Sieghard and TheSummoner's judgement in this.

    My concern there is whether it would effect travel time and the chance of being spotted. If it's a moot point, there's no need. Though there still may be the issue of preparations. Whether Ludo gets a saw to speed things along or something to obscure his face and all that.

    Said, but in a way that implied she was heading that way rather than a 100% confirmation she's there. I'll try to find the quote for you.

    Edit: Found it.

'Bout a month back, on the road from the Keep.” He scratched his bristly chin. “Said he saw a girl coming this way, was missing the ends of her fingers like you said. Not carrying much more'n a bindle with her.” He shook his head. “Thing is, we never saw her turn up here. Frideric said he offered her a lift but she didn't want none. Guessed she must've been going Rivermouth way.”
