    I've long held that English is in fact an obscure dialect of Common.

    As a proud non-Anglophone I reject that notion and will insist it's a weird Creole of various trade tongues, perhaps resembling Sabir!


    Meanwhile, as a side effect of Detect Thoughts, Utra should learn if there's anything with an Intelligence score (other than the party) in the cave within the area of a 60' cone in Taknorogan's general direction so long such creatures, if any are not hidden behind more than "1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt" and fail a DC 16 Will save.

    Those were the results of two rolls I made for Utra in the Dice Rolling thread the other day. Don't worry about 'em.

    I do not imagine the PC's speech sounds at all like Modern English. Any real world language referenced in character can be explained away as being an obscure dialect. Having evolved into something resembling its real world counterpart with an entirely different history. Sounding quite unlike its origin, the common spoken in game.

    There is of course also the metaenglish, the language with which our shared world is constructed. This could be properly referred to as English by a character of deep understanding and faith, or one who ate the wrong mushroom.

    So, the question is this: should Utra burn a 3rd level slot or two to Clairvoyance/Clairaudience check on the ship, or are we conserving resources for speeding up operations right now and focusing on the Dragon angle?

    well she is also not going to go it alone.. unlike before when she thought the party was following

    so until the party is "up" there is nothing else to do at this moment

    How long does it take to swim back to the ship? Djin has 15 ft swim speed from augment crystal.

    The ship is more than five miles down the shore. Djin would have to swim in open frigid waters (hypothermia, predators) with little opportunity rest. I calculate at 15ft per round it would take Djin three hours to swim back to the Harmonious Spirit.

    Oof. That is a waste of time then. Best use Surreth. What about using the run option/round while swimming?

    Should use the spell before resting.

    With a feat worthy of story and song, Djin might be able to get to the Harmonious Spirit in 45 minutes. But hypothermia and predators would still be an issue.

    Swimming five miles across frigid waters in 45 minutes is an extraordinary accomplishment.

    Lol, I assumed I need run feat to cut down time. The fact that Djin can beeline towards the ship in that time is hilarious.

    Anyways, timelines getting confused. We splitting to morning and night perspective? I feel that our night conversation is not done yet. Hence, I put the past headline when posting to indicate the split.

    Very good question, yes. As far as Utra is concerned, whether she used one of her highest level spells before resting or not is kinda important too.

    Replied on the divination. Utra made Djin aware of that and I forgot to reply on that.

    04:00 Skar's watch
    06:00 Djin's watch
    08:00 Naomi's watch / Taknorogan wakes from his dream
    09:00 Second conversation with Taknorogan / Nature documentary outside

    Yeah, there is going to confusion. Because Djin "use all divinations before going to bed" to Utra is going to be out of place as I play out his conversation at night before our characters wake.

    This is really awkward, but I kind of forgot a key detail: range. If I'm reading things correctly, Utra can only place the sensor fro Clairaudiance/voyance within 720 feet of herself, which falls way short of the 5 miles distance we are talking here. Our actual best bet might be sending Surreth over and questioning said birdy upon return (Utra has CL 8 Speak with Animals in a spammable quantity available).

    Now, if casting spells happens before going to sleep, she can nevertheless Haste our friendly Eagle, which means that the bird can open the journey with 6 rounds of running on a base speed of 120', and "running" for the duration would then cover 2880 feet (or roughly half a mile) in less than a minute. That's still an option to consider.

    Resting does not necessarily mean sleeping. Utra could still gain a full night sleep from this point forward, but I do not think it matters due to the spell's range. Taknorogan could not logically have given Utra the information from his dream until after he woke from his sleep.

    Ah, I assumed he kinda just nodded off for a short time! All clear on that front, then. Only thing I need to know is which day's budget the Detect Thoughts was from, to mark it down appropriately. I assume Day 2's?

    EDIT: Okay, so I reset her 1st and 3rd level slots and her Belt charge for now, going with the idea of the unified timeline. If I may metagame a little, I figure this can easily work out just fine and in our favour, since this way, the 3rd level spell she'll burn this morning will be Haste on Surreth (if Skaruvus agrees), and should someone able to roll more than a 4 on Listen just mention there's an ongoing battle outside, that can turn into a Haste for the whole party at the same time. Everybody wins!

    I consider Taknorogan's sleep to have occurred in the previous six to seven hours. What your character did during that time is up to you. All information communicated or detected involving the Harmonious Spirit has been within the last hour.
