    Yeah, ok. I'll have Sora ask around then.

    And the terrain is mountainous, isn't it? Might not be much food available to forage.

    Someone might want to let Jason know that Achuak was invited along, too. At this point, he has no idea.

    Water should still be relatively easy to get, and there's actually a chance of plentiful life in mountainous regions cuz the wildlife there is adapted to living there, like mountain goats and such. and stuff like trees will still grow up to a certain height, along with stuff like various types of fungi ,edible berries, etc. etc.

    but yeah, it's why I need GM-info on this, cuz my character would of course know if it's without reason to find food and water or not PRIOR to entering that type of terrain.

    First, not really a need to worry about provisions - you're only traveling two miles! Even still, plenty of (barbarous) people do live there, so no, foraging and hunting isn't a big problem anyway.

    Second,

    I wonder, do the red and yellow robes mean anything to me? Intelligence (Religion): (1d20+3)[6]
    The only robes Sora's ever bothered herself with are red, black, and white. She might guess, but she's simply never bothered investigation the other gods and their various sects.

    Yeah, Eren went to talk with him. I think the conversation would take place pretty early in the next morning.

    I was paused in my reply so I didn't know the new posts while I was on a thought break. I originally wrote in the context it was understood that there was an understanding that I'd conceded to a set of agreements of sorts because of the 'next day' outlines before Eren and Jason posted and I didn't want to narrate over that.

    At least I was able to adjust my post to account for this but it did throw me for a loop at first. I actually have to thank them for putting me on the spot, however inadvertent it was, as it forces me to be more loose with my writing to allow edits. It's a personal challenge I like being subjected to, knowing that I need to accommodate various factors outside of the standard fare.

    That sounds weird out of context but I have always enjoyed writing and it is nice to be thrown a curveball every once in a while to remind me of the more nuanced factors in storytelling that are often overlooked/overshadowed by just the basic concept of 'whatever, keep going, we'll just power through it or ignore it'.

    Oh, btw, not that it should really impede the FREQUENCY of posting any but I'm having surgery tomorrow so bear with me if I'm not as quick on the draw if the overall posting picks up. I won't keep anyone really waiting, just I'm going to not want to be brash with my decisions while under painkillers for the next 4 to 6 weeks so I might even be more sound of mind than I really want my character to be (considering I had planned for a gradual weaning from his more primal instincts) just to be safe I don't be totally stupid about it all.

    Headsup everyone, there's a lot of brownouts with the network in my area of Denmark currently. It's causing issues with anything from watching a youtube clip, to get onto Giantitp.

    So GM, if I suddenly don't respond, then this is the reason. The network cables in the road outside has most likely been cut cuz they are in the middle of relaying new asphalt and such.

    Small update now that I can do so from my mom's laptop.

    The retards laying new asphalt on the road outside haven't fixed the cut cables yet so it'll be a few more days before I can even begin to do more than attempt to read a long on the IC when visiting my mother or father.

    There are three players who need or at least should include themselves in this scene (one of whom has understandable technical issues). I would like to see you discuss and plan and actually enact something.

    Don't keep waiting for me, because I have no idea what you want to do. Obviously, if the PCs just sit there and wait for days, the place will be attacked. If you're just going to wait, I at least need to know that. If you're going to prepare for that, as has been suggested but not decided, I need to know. If you intend to do something else, I need to know.

    Well, the first thing we need to decide is if we're going to go looking for the raiders, or wait for them to come to us. It sounded like Jason wanted to go looking. I think Sora prefers waiting, since roaming the mountains on our own would be pretty dangerous. But I think all five of us should have a say.

    Then... I mean, if we're looking for a peaceful solution, we need to properly understand what the tribespeople actually want. I'm not sure how we go about that, since Windmark only has guesses and assumptions, and they don't seem the kind of people to present a list of demands before attacking. If we could infiltrate the tribe somehow... but they'll be suspicious of outsiders and our magical resources are limited. Anyone got any ideas?

    In terms of whether we stay and defend the monastery or seek out the tribals on our own:

    Defending the monastery from the next attack:
    Pros: Easier to fortify and defend
    Cons: Puts the monks at risk

    Seeking out the tribals on their own:
    Pros: Keeps the monks and monastery safe, hopefully stops the next attack from even happening
    Cons: Puts the party at higher risk

    Anything else I'm not thinking of to add to that list? Also, Jason suspects these last few attacks have been probing the place's defenses, and a much larger attack may be coming. If true, waiting for it to happen might not be the best idea.

    If it comes down to fighting, I think we should stay at the monastery, unless we are going with an assassination/sabotaging route.

    I wrote earlier that Eren sent his familiar out to scout the nearby area. If we find where they are, maybe we could also use the bird to send a message, to try and set up a parley. Safer than going in person, though maybe not as effective.

    Thank you - I had forgotten this. How far is it going? I will say it spies a sizable encampment (campfires) about three miles away on a neighboring hill. And - everybody - don't forget to give me rolls. Always roll when you think it makes sense. I don't like asking because that requires three posts when you could have just supplied it the first time. Perception here please.

    Also, is Eren going to avail himself of the huge and unexpected library?

    Eren will let it scout as long as it finds a settlement, though he can only telepathically communicate with it if it's within 100 feet.

    I think I said the familiar was a raven, so here's its perception: (d20+3)[11]


    Yes, Eren will use their library. He was intending to search for something useful related to the current situation (if there's anything about the history of the local tribes, something about their customs...)

    Will use Star chain to gain advantage on this int skill check.
    I'm assuming history, but if it's religion or investigation, then +5. If it's just an int check, then +3.

    (d20+7)[27]

    I don't know their numbers, but I assume there are too many for us to fight all at once. If violence is the only option we have, then we'd be better off either picking off small groups bit by bit or taking out their leadership. Depending on how many there are, even fortifying the monastery might not be enough.

    Sorry to be absent for a while. Had been staying in the hospital for a bit. Couple of big sweet pitties jumped up on me and sent me down a flight of stairs and my surgery staples burst open and the dogs tried to "help" me, making it worse. Please, people, if you're not strong enough to hold back two dogs in public, don't have 'em even if they ARE lovable friendly mutts.

    So...yeah, wasn't exactly in a position to really think about this thread. I'll cobble something later tonight. Just got back home and wanted to let ya know I wasn't abandoning ship.

    With an 11, no I'm afraid only what I've said.

    Oh, and as for the research, I'd love to go more in-depth about the library, because it's great, buy I just want to get info out for you because this is taking a while. A hint leads Eren to find a scroll buried in a chest from several centuries ago. It records, very briefly, the thoughts from a monk who used magic to infiltrate a barbarian encampment to investigate their ways. He says they treated the attack as a sacred blooding trial, almost a coming of age, for the next generation of warriors. He supposed it was easier attacking the monastery and farming villages to "blood" young warriors against outsiders than send them against seasoned warriors of other tribes in the difficult trials of survival. He admits in his final notes that a tradition that honors strength and vigor wouldn't strike at weak civilians, so his suppositions may be incorrect.

    Alright. Looks like that's all the intel we're going to get out of this, at least from where we are now. Should we put it to a vote then? Do we stay and fortify or do we go out and try to reason with the tribals? Jason votes for the latter.
