    Regardless, we should probably find a place to stay for the night.

    Fair point on Magic Aura Darvin, although I was right in thinking that there was *a* Magic Aura that worked on people, apparently.
    Steveodore's also got a good point on the somewhat common nature of magic, especially in the upscale districts like where Silas lives.
    Generally speaking, while there will be some attempt at security against various forms of magic, those are things in place around areas that people want to protect.
    Out on the street besides the occasional checkpoint (which generally won't be in place until the riots hit and they're necessary), you don't need to be too paranoid about magic unless you decide to start practicing your evocation spells on the citizenry.

    And, to summarize your options for places to stay - Aliani's house, the Vaults/sewers, Vencarlo Orsini's residence, and (maybe Dalen's house?) are all potential options at this point, each with their own drawbacks and benefits.

    Moving Trinia around will get much harder after the riots begin, so getting her to Vencarlo now so we don't have to play babysitter would make a lot of sense. With that in mind, Dalen will need a solid 8 hours sleep to prepare spells for tomorrow, and I'd like at least an hour or so for some shopping before the meeting with Zellaria.

    Also as a note, you guys could always split up, if some people (*cough* Aliani *cough*) have other things (people?) they need to do.

    It will take at least a couple hours to move across the city to Old Korvosa - much less if you're willing to just move about openly instead of sticking to back alleyways.

    Just a request here but could someone bring up Dandelion since my character was asking, either Silas or Dalen. Just asking cause I suspect this might be my last opportunity with him.

    Also, sorry for the double post; but I don't know how well Aliani 2.0 knows of Vencarlo (the original version managed to have no clue, but I didn't have bardic knowledge or any such skill then)

    so here's a roll I suppose, if it matters. Maybe he's sufficiently famous (like, as famous as me even!) that it's a DC 0. Let me know.

    Vencarlo is decently famous. Not to the point of everyone knowing his name like King Eodred or something, but decently well known to those with an interest in the martial arts or local gossip.

    What is relatively common knowledge for those people (and with that check, Aliani) is that Vencarlo Orsini is an older gentleman (in his 50s) who is the head master of the Orsini Fencing School, an academy that teaches, predictably, fencing to all who wish to learn (and have some amount of money to pay for instruction). It's quite common for nobles to send their teenage children to either the Acadamae or Vencarlo's to learn discipline, and some sort of tradecraft whether that's magic or swordsmanship. That being said, Vencarlo also has some adult students as well, and other instructors who do most of the actual teaching while he supervises (although he often will jump in to teach a given day's lesson if he's available).

    The gossip portion of Vencarlo's reputation is that he is somewhat of a ladies' man, being a notorious flirt, and a practical joker, with a cutting wit that has eviscerated more than one foppish noble who got on his bad side. He has trained a number of important figures within the city, including Korvosa's new Field Marshall, Cressida Kroft, and Queen Ileosa's personal bodyguard, Sabrina Merrin. There were also rumors of a falling out between Vencarlo and these two promising students, although the exact details are unknown to most people.

    Also as a note if people want to split up further, Silas should probably introduce Trinia to Vencarlo since Vencarlo hasn't met any of you lot yet (in this go-around). Which could leave Miz and/or Dalen free to go hunting after Dandelion before he predictably gets eaten in the riots. And we all know what Aliani wants to go do by himself (what are the chances though that he actually gets what he wants, given the day he's had so far? )

    So, what I've got at this point: party split back up!

    Aliani - Home

    Dalen - Escorting Trinia to Vencarlo

    Silas - ???

    Miz - ???

    Once I know what Miz/Silas are going to do, we will move forward!

    Silas is sort of assuming they've all been made to some degree. It'd be great if we split and everyone could do what they want.

    Silas and Trinia to Vencarlo
    Miz and Dalen to Leon
    Aliani to his fun and games

    I'm just hoping we can come to a final decision within the next day or two.

    IC thread updated.
    Not entirely happy about the transitions I made back into solo plot lines, but at least it keeps things moving!
    (Exception to that is Aliani's. I've been waiting for this awkward conversation since I was aware Aliani was going to have company tonight at the same time as he had just bought a small army's worth of weapons and food. To be fair, though, at least he has something he can give the girls to help defend themselves? )

    All I can say is, you're lucky the girls are taking wisdom penalties at this point - Beautrice rolled a nat 13 (Nadine took 10, but Beautrice is a little more suspicious). So Aliani escapes to lie through his teeth for another day.

    Didn’t mean to shut Miz out of conversation right now btw— happy to make any small (or big) talk you want on the way.

    (To add: one of the things that made this campaign so fun originally was the great interplay between the characters -- also, that makes it easier on the DM. Let's go for more of that!)

    I thought about it too but, I'm sure we'll all have plenty of time for small talk and general back and forth once we've all gotten together for some revenge therapy. Better to get our ducks all lined up in the meantime.

    IC thread updated! Looks like we should be moving along to the next day for everyone pretty shortly.
    Hopefully we can speed the next day along a bit faster than 150 posts in order to get the party back together and get the actual AP on the road.

    Taking the OOC conversion over here.

    Dalen intends to do some shopping before heading to 3 Lancet Street, but he needs no less than 8 hours of sleep, otherwise he can't prepare spells for the day. Seeing as he's at 50% at the current moment, recharging takes priority in an immediate sense. Our fine GM can let me know how much leeway I have to work around that timing requirement.

    If we're only going to cast the spell once then a scroll is fine, but given what Aliani's up to with all that revolutionary business, we may need to fake more deaths in the future. So I think learning it is the best course of action. It's an opposition school spell, but I can eat the penalty and cast it anyways.

    Yeah, I was volunteering Silas to get it for you. We have two main options here:

    A book with additional necromancy/whatever spells.

    A single scroll

    I figured you'd want to copy it to your book, although I had to double-check the rules for oppositon schools. Casting staight from the scroll would suck if we follow RAW.

    Hey Inspectre, would it be fair for Dalen to use his Int modifier instead of the minimum for DC as long as he was the one to create the scoll? Barring opposition schools, I guess.

    That might be a tad strong at later levels... maybe put it behind a feat. 🤗

    That'd be way too strong as a freebee. The only way to get that is with this archetype, and even then it only comes at 10th level and the archetype gives pretty much nothing else that's useful. It'd be totally inappropriate to give it for free to a 3rd level wizard.

    And yeah, the DC means I really should be casting it myself. Casting opposition spells costs me 2 spell slots instead of 1; it's a small price for something I'll only cast infrequently.

    Huh. That archetype reminds me of a character from an old Anime called Read or Die. I forget if it's a movie or series (or both), but the main character controlled paper to do amazing things. Mostly glide around in paper aeroplanes.

    Anyway, is it settled? Dalen naps while Silas shops around for the desired scoll? When the wizkid wakes up he can jot down the scroll over the course of however many hours and memorize it for later today.

    It's a very cool and stylish ability, but it's not really that practical. The meant of the archetype is that 10th level ability. There's also this feat that does the same thing for wands, the earliest you can get is 11th (and even then you need either retraining or equal qualification cheese)

    Yeah no, that's way too big of a buff to magic scrolls, which I imagine Dalen will already be making quite a few of.
    For timing purposes, let's say you got to Vencarlo's around 4 AM, and it's now 8AM, so you've slept for 4 hours.
    Thus, Silas really should sleep another couple of hours if he doesn't want to worry about fatigue penalties, and Dalen also needs another good 4 hours before he's ready to transcribe spells.
    You will all be meeting at Zellara's at 6 PM assuming the past continues to hold, and you probably want to be there and ready to go after Lamm by then because the riots are going to start shortly after nightfall a little after 8PM - so if you try to push going after Lamm until later that night who knows what will happen.

    Also, after reading the description and finding nothing about repairing damage to the body beyond altering its appearance, I am going to rule that you do need an intact corpse in order for the Sculpted Corpse not to be missing limbs as well (cosmetic wounds can be resealed, but missing limbs are no good, even if you have said limb to reattach). This might be pertinent given the condition Lamm's body was in the last time you were done with him.

    It's going to be difficult to fake Trinia's death in this time frame, especially when Aliani is going to be rather tied-up (heeheheeheeheee) for most of the morning and afternoon with all of his various planned meetings.

    Yeah, I figured. 😅

    Sleep: Could I shop and then sleep? It'll save Dalen some time, and Trinia can be possibly creep on Silas. 😉

    Body: As long as the face is intact, I think we'll be fine. That was the general method of recognition in every movie I've ever seen. Not a lot of bounty hunting in my book studies.

    Edit: Maybe Vencarlo could be persuaded to shop for us, given our desire to lay low?

    Absolutely correct. This is the spell for that

    Unless Cykan shows up unannounced, though, I think the corpse should be in sufficient shape for our purposes.
