    I'm ok with either. People drop, sometimes they come back.

    I vote wait for one more day, and if we don't hear from him, continue on.

    I'm fine with that. If we need to make rolls on his behalf, how do you want to handle that, Saintheart?

    Eh, I think its best for him to Aidan to scout on so we can wait for ShedShadow to come back.

    Most likely I'd roll for him if it came to that, but given the way the informal votes panned out I'll just rule he's headed on up the road leaving the rest of you to handle this issue. I think we've waited enough time. Update should be coming in a few hours.

    So uh, do we have to roll or did someone make the checks? I haven't had my book out, so my bonus would only be +9. Same for Diana, actually, unless she's got some other boost that I didn't see in her sheet.

    Also I really should have refrained from checking to avoid metagaming. Ah well.

    I'll go ahead and roll the first one. Here's hoping for 10% chance!

    Intelligence check: (1d20+1)[5]

    The rest I can't make.

    I uh, okay I'm going to make the roll then. Not going to include my book, though, and literally can't make the last one anyways.

    Let's hope I make the first one, at least.

    (1d20+9)[12]

    I screwed up the DCs on that. I think I was going for some sort of passive Knowledge DC and overestimated the numbers, but I will stand by the call that Arendi and Diana still pass the first box. I am readjusting the DCs now, not that it makes a practical difference since someone is still taking dumps on the RNG's altar with the numbers being pulled...

    Well, hooray for automatic successes I guess.

    I'm going to start work on the second update for the journal soon, but I'm totally going to add some of this in the preview for the one after that. Second update's going to cover up until we left Drelin's Ferry.

    Edit: Assuming they don't fight it or something, could I fit Mr. or Mrs. Bracken Corpse into my Haversack without contaminating the other stuff in there? I'm not optimistic about that working for several reasons but I'm still curious anyways.

    I would be inclined to say not, mostly because of maximum cubic space, but also because even if it's a rotting corpse, it likely still weighs more than the 80 pound/36 kg maximum weight that the largest compartment on the Haversack could take. That said, dear gods, the stink, even if it is an extradimensional space.

    Yeah, that makes sense. I suppose that they're too decomposed for people to recognize them anyways.

    I only pause to note here, in a totally unrelated manner, that sometimes people's accoutrements can be as distinctive as their non-decomposed faces...

    Hey people,

    Shed here. My sixteen thousand apologies for my 'ghosting'. I was recently pulled out of a bit of self-pity by a very kind 'How are you' from someone in the team here, for which I am very grateful. I didn't answer his question privately since I figure you all deserve to know: rough. Things have been rough.

    A short version of events include a wife slipping into a depression, although she is currently seeing her therapist, a constant demand of work, night shifts at a 2nd job taking their toll, and me not passing a university course from last semester. Hecking mess of busy-ness, sleep deprivation, but most of all a deep fatigue. Creatively I just feel... deflated. As if the things that I create, as a DM, player, or writer, just aren't good enough and inspiration is few and far between, to use a trite phrase.

    I am sincerely sorry that my mess of a situation has stalled the game for you, but also that I didn't signal anything earlier. You guys are an awesome group to play with, with gifted writers, roleplayers, world-builders and character creators. I absolutely love reading the posts and following the game, but I haven't had the energy to do that until this morning. I hope you can find it in you to forgive me and let me play with you again.

    Hoo, Jorr is the kind of guy I love to hate. I want to insult him into going with us, like "are you trying to get out of it cuz you're too cowardly or just too old?" but somehow that doesn't seem like a Diplomacy check ...

    Related question, can one or more of us attempt to Aid Another?

    Oh joy, the foul-mouthed slightly racist/speciesist old grandpa archetype.

    As for Diplomacy, how about using the highest result as a base and the other rolls for Aid Another checks?

    Alastor can't cast Glibness yet so I don't think that's possible, but none of us have penalties to Diplomacy and there's always Diana's aura.

    That assumes our dice cooperate, of course, but... eh.

    Oh, everyone has a +2 bonus to their Diplomacy checks due to Diana's aura. Might as well roll now for Arendi as well, yeah.

    (1d20+5)[25]

    Edit: Oh so THAT'S where all our luck went!

    Well, what's the cheat code for this old geezer then, because I've probably got it even without the Aid Another boosts.

    If you want to settle in for the evening and want to accept Jorr's offer of a meal, it spares you having to use up trail rations or forage, and as said he's likely going to be hard to convince going out at or after dark. The choice of path for tomorrow, as before, basically comes down to two routes: the faster but more dangerous (Dawn Way) or slower but hopefully less dangerous (up the woodcutters' trails and then trailbreak through to the Keep). Or you might have something else in mind. And there's also the pace to set: fast, normal, or slow.
    I guess the question is: How far is Vraath Keep from here? Are we talking days of travel at a fast pace on the dangerous path to make it there?

    A slow pace on the safer path will get us there by 10am tomorrow morning? Or somewhere in between?


    I'm thinking we should be aiming for arriving late morning to early afternoon on whatever day we actually do arrive. Hobgoblins see as well at night as Vokon does, and better than the humans in the party. So fighting in the dark gives them an advantage over half of our party, which seems like a terrible idea.
