    For what it's worth, I don't have much more of an idea what to do in this scene other than 1) have Sebastian recap the story thus far and 2) wait for Reggie, unless Sebastian tells more in a way that means we should go help.

    Hey all, my sincere apologies for the delay in posting!!!

    First, I have to also apologize to Haval for missing his spent WP. I will updated your character box, but that is one success and I will reflect this now in the upcoming IC post. Really, I feel pretty stupid for missing that. I hope you have a great time at the wedding, and it's fine if you need a bit of time away from the forum next week as a result.

    @JL: Check out my post IC and let me know if that helps.

    @Hemnon: I'm sorry you weren't feeling well, and I'm glad you are starting to feel better. Summer colds can really suck. And of course, I'm glad it wasn't anything more serious.

    The address is an apartment in The French Quarter, off of Bourbon street. While the neighborhood is certainly expensive, most properties in this region are divided into split apartments. This address has no apartment number which means the owner owns the entire property. So, ya, likely a pretty expensive home.

    Yes I am specifically NOT bartering here, cuz Calliope has still only recently managed to get some semblance of 'reality hold' to her own mind, having only returned from Arcadia about a year or so prior.
    She is still getting used to everything and tends to put stuff like bartering and forefront talking when extremely important, to others... Like Emma for example.

    Maybe a bartering can happen once Calliope's talked with Emma and gotten to know specifically what questions Emma has in mind to be answered. And if Emma might have some dungbeetles laying around.

    Been a crazy week and not quite up for thinking through all the questions, so proposing a medium thing.

    To summarize the IC:
    ask 1 question now for 1 goblin fruit, then we preocure handbags* and ask more as a group
    Question is: "What happened to Reggie, Tom, and Marv at Marv's restarant and its nearby Hedge?"

    *my real life knowledge of handbags is low. I'm assuming with our total motley Resources of 5 (right?) that we can easily afford several handbags. Could you clarify if there's a good limit?
    Also... Int + Occult to know if there's loophole or contract that could hurt us by giving handbags?
    (4d10)[2][4][6][5](17)




    UPDATE: real life has had me kinda crazy at least the first part of this week. Hope things resolve soon, but just wanted to post something if I'm late.

    Well sure I'll roll.

    But I also have the Merit Goblin Bounty that gives me 3 goblin fruits per chapter.

    Also since my character has market sense.... is Fuxi willing to accept a Calliope taking a goblin debt in exchange? I dunno if she is a Hedge Denizen (aka. counts as a goblin from just that) or if she is jsut a changeling without such bindings to the hedge?)

    Anyways here's the roll for the trod harvest attempt.
    (1d10)[2] - so it's..... 9 and 10 that succeeds if I recall correctly yes?

    @JL: I'd say you can afford maybe two luxury handbags without having to "use the merit", as some of them can be in the 10s of thousands. Crazy I know!

    Sorry I missed this post and didn't respond before. Sorry I never replied! As far as your roll goes, Emma can't really think of anything

    @Hemnon: My bad, I missed that you had Goblin Bounty. In that case forget your roll (it was a failure but we'll pretend you never used it). I suppose it would be fair to assume that Lily even had one on hand if she was going to be bargaining with it, though if you would prefer, Lily can run off to get it.

    Just let me know what you want to do. Unfortunately, Fuxi is another Changeling, and so she cannot trade in Goblin Debt. But I would happily give you a bonus to a barter roll with her, as a benefit from that merit.

    I'll accept whatever you give.

    Also I think We'll do that first question and then call Fuxi next there's a need.

    My supervisor retired a few months ago, and I just got her team lead position. So my workload is increasing some and my free time going down.

    I'm going to have to see how things go, but I might have to drop this game. I'm not saying I am dropping it now, but wanted to give a fair heads-up that such might happen as I see how much more time this takes.

    That is crazy, but buying two sounds good. I reckon New Orleans has such shops. Emma shall procure two when she can as hopes are open (tonight if still open, in the morning if then.)

    question... what'd it cost in terms of money to buy goblin fruits then? I mean if it's cheaper.... buy the fruits

    Or get a goblinfruit and gain goblin debt? I know how to reduce that without having to do rediculous things like collect the first milktooth dropped by 50 kids.

    Congratulations on the new position. I hope it means a bump in pay at least. Thank you for the warning, and please please please let me know if you are going to be dropping. I'm sorry if this game hasn't been steady and along with that engaging enough, but I hope you are able to find the time.

    question... what'd it cost in terms of money to buy goblin fruits then? I mean if it's cheaper.... buy the fruits
    I don't think there is an exact cost, and in The Tumbledown Market, finding the right vendor and adequately bartering may lead to significant variance in price. It's not exactly the kind of place where there is a stable and consistent price to things.

    I've been meaning to ask, is there a downside to being caught using Contracts in front of humans? Something like a Masquerade violation.

    If we really need handbags how feasible is it to steal them? Mostly asking because I think I can use Hidden Reality to say, make an unlocked doorway into a shop in the middle of the night.

    Actually they won't really see the contract magic. just like with your character's mask, you have to actively WANT them to see it... which leads to all kinds of bad things that could potentially cause humans to go catatonic from the reveal.
    I dun recall the in-game word for it tho...

    Using contracts usually does not cause an obvious break in reality, and there are no hard "Masquerade Laws" as Hemnon replied. However, see page 108 on dropping one's mask.

    EDIT: @Hemnon and Haval: What are your thoughts if JL drops?

    Ah the Huntsman are the main consequence for going too far. I was just trying to think through the consequences of using contracts to steal things and having it go badly. At worse you can disappear mysteriously from a cell.

    Well hopefully he doesn't have to, although obviously stuff can come up. I hope I haven't been too slow to post. I'm ok to go on if you are.

    I'd be glad to keep going, and understood that your post rate has been slow. I hope JL can keep up as well. Fingers crossed... really really don't want to keep re-recruiting.

    So I want to see if Max's knows any other Wizened or someone with the Artist kith who might be more focused on making things then he is.

    I think I can use Allies (Musician) (.) to ask for a basic favour which would be to ask to see if anyone knows anyone appropriate. Let me know if it's a big enough favour that it needs a roll.
    No roll necessary, though I'd argue it would be your Contact "Night Revelers" that would apply here. Allies musicians would be a mundane ally. Why don't you just describe briefly who Max is contacting (Max's Musician ally and specifically what he is asking for.

    You're right. I was thinking of that as applying to other Changeling musicians. Let's go with Contacts (Night Revelers) instead.

    So I want to find someone who can make a copy of a good handbag in exchange for a favour maybe. I get the impression that another Wizened might be capable of doing the job. If Max doesn't necessarily know anyone who could do it he could ask an older Night Reveler who has lived in New Orleans for longer and might know the sort of person who could make a handbag on demand. The Contact would likely be any older barfly that Max may have played with at some point.

    Let me know if I have the wrong idea here about Wizened. I'm also not sure if I can get away with leveraging social skills to get an NPC to do all the work for me.

    My backup plan would be to just try and break into a shop and pick up a load of handbags that way. I may need Hemmon or JL to weigh in on that plan though. I have Hidden Reality and Light-Shy so I don't think it would be that difficult, but I could be wrong.

    I think it would be reasonable that Max knows someone who might be able to point Max in the right direction, and I think you have the right understanding of everything you've described. As you chose the Contact (Night Revelers) merit, I will give you the opportunity to flesh out just who this contact is. So I'm going to let you post IC, describing who it is Max is reaching out to (you don't have to get too detailed), and what he says, and I'll fill in the rest.

    My apologies, but with how stressful and busy things have been, I think I should formally drop out.

    I hope Emma at least has facilitated to get the team in contact with Sebastian and thus with the "old team's plot", and that you'll let her purchase a couple handbags for the group, so we can pursue those angles.
    Anyway, I am sorry, but just feeling drowning-swamped between some work and real life stuff. Good stuff, all in all, but tough.

    So, yes, please NPC her, and sorry I'm adding to the list of dropping-players.
