[Wed Dec 21 20:06:19 2016] : DM: GAME START
[Wed Dec 21 20:06:58 2016] : DM: You infiltrated the bandit camp, intending to assassinate Akiros. Instead, you turned him to your side, and enlisted his help to rescue Oleg from the bandits.
[Wed Dec 21 20:07:38 2016] : DM: Dovan, the one who enjoyed torturing people, is dead: and even though he seriously injured Eadfrid, Alhandra was able to heal everyone in time.
[Wed Dec 21 20:08:36 2016] : DM: You have two new bandit prisoners; Akiros suggests giving them a second chance - like you did before - but Oleg says "These two stood by and watched me be tortured. I'm not having them work for me."
[Wed Dec 21 20:09:08 2016] : DM: The conversation takes place as you ride back to Oleg's Trading Post; you have to decide whether to let them live, or execute them.
[Wed Dec 21 20:09:40 2016] : Bandit: "Let us have a second chance! I only turned bandit because we were starving!"
[Wed Dec 21 20:10:32 2016] : Bandit: ooc also you leveled up
[Wed Dec 21 20:10:40 2016] : Guthmund: "And what line of work do you propose to stop you from starvation this time?"
[Wed Dec 21 20:10:57 2016] : Guthmund: "You will have trouble as a branded bandit"
[Wed Dec 21 20:11:01 2016] : Bandit: "Anything you can give us!"
[Wed Dec 21 20:11:36 2016] : Guthmund: "I have nothing to give. You have assisted in the torture of the one man that I know might have taken you in"
[Wed Dec 21 20:11:46 2016] : Guthmund: "He will not have you"
[Wed Dec 21 20:11:53 2016] : Eadfrid: "I know of no other work available."
[Wed Dec 21 20:11:59 2016] : Bandit: ooc Sarah says "kill the annoying kid!"
[Wed Dec 21 20:12:19 2016] : Bandit: "We'll... we'll be farmers!"
[Wed Dec 21 20:12:31 2016] : Guthmund: "You have experience as farmers?"
[Wed Dec 21 20:13:07 2016] : Bandit: "It can't be that difficult, right? You dig some holes and put seeds in, then you get food."
[Wed Dec 21 20:13:14 2016] : Guthmund: "I see"
[Wed Dec 21 20:13:21 2016] : DM: Sense Motive checks, please...
[Wed Dec 21 20:13:38 2016] : Eadfrid: Sense Motive: [1d20(3) + -1] = 2
[Wed Dec 21 20:13:38 2016] : Guthmund: "Your understanding of farming is as good as your abilities in your previous careers"
[Wed Dec 21 20:13:47 2016] : Guthmund: Sense Motive: [1d20(13) + 1] = 14
[Wed Dec 21 20:14:00 2016] : Alhandra: Sense Motive: [1d20(3) + 3] = 6
[Wed Dec 21 20:14:15 2016] : DM: You all notice the bandit grinning; it seems he doesn't really believe you'd execute him.
[Wed Dec 21 20:14:35 2016] : DM: ooc he rolled 0 on his Bluff check. Even Eadfrid can't miss that DC ;-)
[Wed Dec 21 20:14:41 2016] : Guthmund: "You think this a joke?"
[Wed Dec 21 20:14:55 2016] : Bandit: "Do you hear me laughing?"
[Wed Dec 21 20:15:14 2016] : Akiros: Akiros speaks up "You never were a good liar, Piotr."
[Wed Dec 21 20:15:19 2016] : ** Stag Lord found the F6 macro key **
[Wed Dec 21 20:15:20 2016] : Guthmund: "I see you grinning, like this is just some simple matter"
[Wed Dec 21 20:15:41 2016] : Bandit: "Fine, hang me then, and feel guilty that you couldn't redeem me!"
[Wed Dec 21 20:15:54 2016] : Guthmund: "I saw only one way out of the noose."
[Wed Dec 21 20:16:03 2016] : Guthmund: "You misunderstand my motivations"
[Wed Dec 21 20:16:13 2016] : Guthmund: "I am no so called do-gooder"
[Wed Dec 21 20:16:17 2016] : Bandit: The bandit makes a desperate grab for Eadfrid's sword, but you subdue him easily
[Wed Dec 21 20:16:27 2016] : Guthmund: "I am one who achieves the needed job"
[Wed Dec 21 20:17:27 2016] : Guthmund: "I feel no guilt for providing the death that your own actions have provoked"
[Wed Dec 21 20:17:38 2016] : Eadfrid: Eadfrid gets a rope out of his pack and starts to tie a noose.
[Wed Dec 21 20:17:55 2016] : Guthmund: "The only question is where this should be done"
[Wed Dec 21 20:17:59 2016] : DM: ooc there's no trees nearby, so the noose won't be immediately usable
[Wed Dec 21 20:18:44 2016] : Guthmund: ooc is Oleg well? I used the wand on him.
[Wed Dec 21 20:19:18 2016] : Guthmund: Guthmund whispers to Oleg
[Wed Dec 21 20:19:49 2016] : Oleg: ooc Oleg is healed physically, but still emotionally scarred
[Wed Dec 21 20:21:31 2016] : Guthmund: ooc there are two of them? Is only one talking?
[Wed Dec 21 20:22:05 2016] : DM: ooc yes, there's two of them, but one of them is staying quiet.
[Wed Dec 21 20:22:18 2016] : DM: The bigger of the two, who has a broken nose, is the talkative one.
[Wed Dec 21 20:22:45 2016] : DM: The smaller one looks a bit like a rat - pointed nose, weak chin, and a feeble attempt at a moustache.
[Wed Dec 21 20:23:47 2016] : Alhandra: ooc you all in whisper mode?
[Wed Dec 21 20:23:58 2016] : Alhandra: ooc ah yes, Oleg is typing ;)
[Wed Dec 21 20:24:04 2016] : DM: ooc yes, but I didn't notice :-p
[Wed Dec 21 20:24:11 2016] : DM: ooc we'll be back very soon
[Wed Dec 21 20:24:12 2016] : Guthmund: ooc I was whispering to Oleg
[Wed Dec 21 20:24:29 2016] : Alhandra: ooc yes, I noticed, was just wondering if I had been disconnected or something ;)
[Wed Dec 21 20:25:02 2016] : Eadfrid: ooc /ping to check connectivity
[Wed Dec 21 20:25:10 2016] : Server Administrator-> Ping Results: 3.6 ms (parsed message, round trip)
[Wed Dec 21 20:25:17 2016] : Oleg: "I don't know if we want to take them all the way back: or just execute them here."
[Wed Dec 21 20:25:28 2016] : Oleg: "Would a sword not work just as well?"
[Wed Dec 21 20:25:48 2016] : DM: ooc Sarah's suggestion was to tie them up and leave them to die of exposure. I think my wife is CE.
[Wed Dec 21 20:25:58 2016] : Guthmund: "Oleg, do you think bandits on gibbets outside your outpost would be a good or bad thing?"
[Wed Dec 21 20:26:03 2016] : Eadfrid: "Death by the sword is for honourable foes, not common bandits."
[Wed Dec 21 20:26:28 2016] : Oleg: "It doesn't look good to traders, does it?"
[Wed Dec 21 20:26:46 2016] : Guthmund: "OK, let's finish this here"
[Wed Dec 21 20:26:47 2016] : Oleg: "But if it keeps the bandits away... I don't know what Svetlana would say. What if they smell bad?"
[Wed Dec 21 20:27:12 2016] : Alhandra: ooc CE?
[Wed Dec 21 20:27:16 2016] : Oleg: ooc Chaotic Evil
[Wed Dec 21 20:27:19 2016] : Alhandra: ooc lol
[Wed Dec 21 20:27:37 2016] : Guthmund: ooc Church of England ;-)
[Wed Dec 21 20:27:50 2016] : Alhandra: ooc LOL
[Wed Dec 21 20:28:00 2016] : Alhandra: "I am not sure this is really about the smell"
[Wed Dec 21 20:28:07 2016] : Alhandra: "After a while there is no smell anyway"
[Wed Dec 21 20:28:19 2016] : Alhandra: "but the question is whether you want to keep bandits or traders away"
[Wed Dec 21 20:28:21 2016] : DM: ooc Eadfrid is voting for a hanging; Oleg is being unhelpful; Guthmund votes for an immediate execution.
[Wed Dec 21 20:28:33 2016] : Alhandra: "I am with Guthmund"
[Wed Dec 21 20:28:38 2016] : Oleg: "Without traders there's no reason for me to be out here."
[Wed Dec 21 20:28:50 2016] : Alhandra: "I don't see the need to hang them outside the tradepost"
[Wed Dec 21 20:28:59 2016] : Eadfrid: "Very well, then let it be over with."
[Wed Dec 21 20:29:00 2016] : Guthmund: Guthmund dismounts
[Wed Dec 21 20:29:02 2016] : Alhandra: "You can always hang their belongings and put up a sign"
[Wed Dec 21 20:29:19 2016] : Alhandra: "That is what happens with bandits here"
[Wed Dec 21 20:29:31 2016] : DM: The executions are swift, and even at the end, Piotr doesn't seem to believe you will follow through.
[Wed Dec 21 20:29:41 2016] : Guthmund: "In accordance with the bandit decree, you are sentenced to death"
[Wed Dec 21 20:29:58 2016] : Akiros: "A sad end. Perhaps they could have done better."
[Wed Dec 21 20:30:24 2016] : Eadfrid: Eafrid begins to dig a shallow grave.
[Wed Dec 21 20:30:48 2016] : DM: You leave the bandits in a scrape in the ground, which has finally softened in the spring rains.
[Wed Dec 21 20:30:59 2016] : Guthmund: Guthmund tries to help, but has no spade, so takes his turn
[Wed Dec 21 20:31:44 2016] : Guthmund: "What's done is done. I see no reason to dwell on this in the future, other than to account to the authorities"
[Wed Dec 21 20:31:53 2016] : Guthmund: ooc brb
[Wed Dec 21 20:31:57 2016] : DM: It's most of a day's ride back to Oleg's, and you arrive near dusk.
[Wed Dec 21 20:32:10 2016] : Svetlana: "Oleg! You're alive!"
[Wed Dec 21 20:32:29 2016] : DM: The two rush to each other, and for a long while, they completely ignore the rest of you.
[Wed Dec 21 20:33:44 2016] : Svetlana: "Thank you. All of you. And who is this?"
[Wed Dec 21 20:34:11 2016] : Svetlana: She points to Akiros, looking a bit wary: but he's not under guard, so she can see you trust him
[Wed Dec 21 20:34:19 2016] : Eadfrid: "Akiros, he assisted in your husband's release."
[Wed Dec 21 20:35:05 2016] : Svetlana: "Then thank you, Akiros. How did this happen? Was he just passing by?"
[Wed Dec 21 20:35:16 2016] : Svetlana: Svetlana's tone turns suspicious
[Wed Dec 21 20:35:50 2016] : Guthmund: "I'll let Oleg expplain"
[Wed Dec 21 20:36:03 2016] : Guthmund: ooc cop out
[Wed Dec 21 20:36:05 2016] : Eadfrid: "I'm sure Akiros can speak for himself."
[Wed Dec 21 20:36:11 2016] : Eadfrid: ooc also cop out...
[Wed Dec 21 20:37:19 2016] : Akiros: "I was looking for a time to leave the bandits. These brave people gave me a chance. My only alternative was to kill as many of them as I could before they brought me down."
[Wed Dec 21 20:37:32 2016] : Akiros: "I will serve as a guard, if you will have me."
[Wed Dec 21 20:37:45 2016] : Oleg: Oleg chips in
[Wed Dec 21 20:38:10 2016] : Oleg: "He gave himself up as a hostage to get me released, Svetlana. He's no coward."
[Wed Dec 21 20:38:47 2016] : Oleg: "I would give him a chance."
[Wed Dec 21 20:39:26 2016] : DM: Svetlana agrees, and you introduce Akiros to Kesten. The mercenary agrees to take on the ex-bandit, at least for now.
[Wed Dec 21 20:40:05 2016] : Guthmund: ooc does Akiros know Kressle's 2 bandits?
[Wed Dec 21 20:40:27 2016] : DM: ooc BRB - but take a look at the quest list here - and think about what you want to go after next
[Wed Dec 21 20:40:30 2016] : DM: ooc http://wiki.davidvrabel.org.uk/wiki/The_Stolen_Land
[Wed Dec 21 20:41:37 2016] : Guthmund: "I suggest we try to get this Falgrim chap from the bandits and maybe hope to find Svetlana's ring"
[Wed Dec 21 20:42:31 2016] : Guthmund: "If we can catch him outside the camp, along with any others, we reduce the overall number at the camp"
[Wed Dec 21 20:43:07 2016] : Eadfrid: ooc I don't remember a Falgrim Sneeg.
[Wed Dec 21 20:44:09 2016] : Guthmund: ooc he was in a list of the bandits, and Henry reminded us that he was a quest
[Wed Dec 21 20:44:35 2016] : DM: ooc he was a mercenary colleague of Kesten's, but he stole from the others and ran off when he was supposed to be on watch.
[Wed Dec 21 20:44:38 2016] : Guthmund: ooc Kesten asked us to get him
[Wed Dec 21 20:44:52 2016] : Alhandra: "more bandits..."
[Wed Dec 21 20:44:54 2016] : DM: ooc Akiros does not recognise the two ex-bandits working at Oleg's.
[Wed Dec 21 20:45:11 2016] : Alhandra: "Hopefully our name will have scared ethem enough that we can coerce them into giving up the ring, for example"
[Wed Dec 21 20:45:21 2016] : DM: ooc You haven't interrogated the two bandits about Svetlana's ring, I think.
[Wed Dec 21 20:46:41 2016] : Eadfrid: "I have had my fill of bandits for now. I would like to return to exploring and charting the area. Perhaps find some new experiences."
[Wed Dec 21 20:47:07 2016] : Guthmund: "Oleg, did you ask the two ex-bandits here about Svetlana's ring?"
[Wed Dec 21 20:47:25 2016] : Guthmund: "I'm happy with that Eadfrid"
[Wed Dec 21 20:47:51 2016] : Oleg: "No - I thought they'd have sold it."
[Wed Dec 21 20:48:01 2016] : Guthmund: "Though bandits seem to turn up in many areas we visit regardless, so ultimately we are fulfilling our broad remit"
[Wed Dec 21 20:48:56 2016] : Guthmund: "Shall we go and ask the ex-bandits now then, before a rest? The we can explore again tomorrow"
[Wed Dec 21 20:48:57 2016] : DM: ooc Map should be up. The hut is where I just put a mini.
[Wed Dec 21 20:49:20 2016] : DM: ooc I should really give the ex-bandits some names.
[Wed Dec 21 20:49:47 2016] : Guthmund: ooc hope and chrity?
[Wed Dec 21 20:49:51 2016] : Guthmund: ooc charity
[Wed Dec 21 20:50:22 2016] : Bandit: ooc lol
[Wed Dec 21 20:50:28 2016] : Eadfrid: ooc Delphine is having computer problems.
[Wed Dec 21 20:50:41 2016] : Grigor: ooc we'll wait a moment
[Wed Dec 21 20:51:39 2016] : Grigor: ooc Grigor and Tomas.
[Wed Dec 21 20:52:31 2016] : Alhandra (enter): 20:52
[Wed Dec 21 20:52:41 2016] : Grigor: Booting '(3) Alhandra' from server...
[Wed Dec 21 20:52:42 2016] : Alhandra (exit): 20:52
[Wed Dec 21 20:52:49 2016] : Grigor: ooc welcome back
[Wed Dec 21 20:52:57 2016] : Alhandra: ooc sorry, my computer froze and I wanted to save MY NODE
[Wed Dec 21 20:53:01 2016] : Alhandra: ooc but couldn't
[Wed Dec 21 20:53:06 2016] : Alhandra: ooc *sigh*
[Wed Dec 21 20:53:15 2016] : Grigor: ooc the plan was to interrogate the two ex-bandits, then head out exploring tomorrow.
[Wed Dec 21 20:53:24 2016] : Alhandra: I left when Eafrid said he had enough with bandits
[Wed Dec 21 20:53:25 2016] : Grigor: ooc the two ex-bandits are Grigor and Tomas.
[Wed Dec 21 20:53:34 2016] : Alhandra: ooc I was going to back him up.
[Wed Dec 21 20:53:48 2016] : Alhandra: ooc and say I've had enough of bandits myself.
[Wed Dec 21 20:53:50 2016] : Grigor: ooc if you all want to send me your nodes, I can keep a backup for you.
[Wed Dec 21 20:54:03 2016] : Alhandra: ooc well you didn't have that one
[Wed Dec 21 20:54:07 2016] : Alhandra: ooc I had just finished it ;)
[Wed Dec 21 20:54:11 2016] : Alhandra: ooc the lvl2
[Wed Dec 21 20:54:38 2016] : Alhandra: ooc we need a save tree thing
[Wed Dec 21 20:54:42 2016] : Alhandra: ooc :P
[Wed Dec 21 20:54:51 2016] : Guthmund: ooc mine are backed up by a script, but as Del says it doesn't help when it crashes after a big node revision
[Wed Dec 21 20:55:13 2016] : Alhandra: I back them up every time I level up
[Wed Dec 21 20:55:26 2016] : Eadfrid: ooc "Save Node As..."
[Wed Dec 21 20:55:28 2016] : Alhandra: ooc but usually AFTER the game ;)
[Wed Dec 21 20:55:45 2016] : Alhandra: ooc yeah but I was still making sure I had gotten to it all
[Wed Dec 21 20:55:47 2016] : Alhandra: ooc anyway
[Wed Dec 21 20:55:49 2016] : Grigor: ooc I edit mine in a text editor
[Wed Dec 21 20:56:02 2016] : Alhandra: ooc GEEK
[Wed Dec 21 20:56:03 2016] : Grigor: "Did you have questions?"
[Wed Dec 21 20:57:20 2016] : Grigor: Grigor is deferential but not servile. He's not a polished man, but he's clearly trying to be polite.
[Wed Dec 21 20:59:30 2016] : Guthmund: "Look Grigor, Svetlana had her ring stolen by bandits..."
[Wed Dec 21 20:59:48 2016] : Grigor: "Oh, that. Sorry."
[Wed Dec 21 20:59:57 2016] : Grigor: He shuffles his feet.
[Wed Dec 21 21:00:02 2016] : Guthmund: "No recriminations, but if you know anything about it, any information would be useful"
[Wed Dec 21 21:00:28 2016] : Guthmund: "Recovering it is important to the two people who took you in"
[Wed Dec 21 21:00:46 2016] : Grigor: "Look, we were just doing a job, right? Not one I'm proud of. I remember it, 'cos the mites snuck into camp and bloody made off with it, didn't they? Got a couple of bags of loot, little blue sods."
[Wed Dec 21 21:01:49 2016] : Alhandra: ooc mites?
[Wed Dec 21 21:01:51 2016] : Eadfrid: "Mites?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:01:59 2016] : Alhandra: ooc oh ok
[Wed Dec 21 21:02:04 2016] : Alhandra: ooc lol
[Wed Dec 21 21:02:10 2016] : Grigor: "Little blue creatures, like goblins but smaller and uglier."
[Wed Dec 21 21:02:11 2016] : Eadfrid: "Tiny little bugs?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:02:14 2016] : Guthmund: ooc the wee free men?
[Wed Dec 21 21:02:16 2016] : Grigor: "If that's possible."
[Wed Dec 21 21:02:26 2016] : Eadfrid: ooc smurfs?
[Wed Dec 21 21:02:28 2016] : DM: ooc like that, but less useful ;-)
[Wed Dec 21 21:02:33 2016] : DM: ooc ugly evil smurfs.
[Wed Dec 21 21:02:56 2016] : Guthmund: ooc yes - Nac MacFeegle
[Wed Dec 21 21:03:08 2016] : Alhandra: "Are these the things that were a pain in the... neck back in the forest?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:03:37 2016] : Grigor: "Nah, these ones live out in the hills, got a lair under the old sycamore."
[Wed Dec 21 21:04:11 2016] : Eadfrid: "We could investigate."
[Wed Dec 21 21:04:13 2016] : Grigor: "Bunch of tight little tunnels, and they didn't get anything valuable, so we just swore a bit and left it. Too much trouble to go mining for it."
[Wed Dec 21 21:04:22 2016] : Guthmund: "Are these 'mites' creatures that we can bargain with?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:04:25 2016] : Grigor: "If you kill them off, I doubt anyone would mind."
[Wed Dec 21 21:04:42 2016] : Grigor: "Never heard of them sticking to a bargain for long. Strange, they are."
[Wed Dec 21 21:04:55 2016] : Guthmund: ooc what were the nasty things in BG... Xorn??
[Wed Dec 21 21:05:11 2016] : Grigor: ooc Xvarts
[Wed Dec 21 21:05:26 2016] : Guthmund: ooc ah yes
[Wed Dec 21 21:06:33 2016] : Grigor: "But if you can bargain with them, feel free."
[Wed Dec 21 21:07:19 2016] : Grigor: Grigor describes the location of the sycamore tree
[Wed Dec 21 21:07:28 2016] : DM: ooc It's where the mini is now :)
[Wed Dec 21 21:08:00 2016] : Guthmund: "Well, we can explore on the way there and see what we can do"
[Wed Dec 21 21:08:04 2016] : Eadfrid: "To the south then. In the morning."
[Wed Dec 21 21:08:13 2016] : Guthmund: "Do these mites like anything in particular?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:08:28 2016] : Alhandra: ooc do I have to redo my node?
[Wed Dec 21 21:08:36 2016] : Alhandra: ooc :P
[Wed Dec 21 21:09:21 2016] : Guthmund: ooc brb
[Wed Dec 21 21:09:39 2016] : Grigor: "Buggered if I know."
[Wed Dec 21 21:09:57 2016] : DM: ooc We're unlikely to get into any combat tonight - I haven't prepared any nodes!
[Wed Dec 21 21:10:10 2016] : Alhandra: ooc good
[Wed Dec 21 21:10:26 2016] : DM: The next day you set off, in the light rain.
[Wed Dec 21 21:10:36 2016] : DM: ooc riding or walking?
[Wed Dec 21 21:11:03 2016] : DM: ooc and someone draw a route for me, and tell me if you're exploring hexes on the way.
[Wed Dec 21 21:12:16 2016] : Eadfrid: ooc suggested route drawn
[Wed Dec 21 21:12:18 2016] : DM: ooc :-)
[Wed Dec 21 21:12:38 2016] : Guthmund: ooc that would have been my suggesiontoo
[Wed Dec 21 21:12:47 2016] : Guthmund: ooc riding
[Wed Dec 21 21:13:20 2016] : Alhandra: ooc we're explorers, of course we're exploring hexes ;)
[Wed Dec 21 21:13:34 2016] : Guthmund: Before we head off, Guthmund sees if Oleg has a variety of items that the mites might trade the ring for
[Wed Dec 21 21:13:43 2016] : Alhandra: ooc just for the bfun bit: Hexe in German means witch
[Wed Dec 21 21:13:45 2016] : Alhandra: :D
[Wed Dec 21 21:13:50 2016] : DM: ooc yep :)
[Wed Dec 21 21:14:10 2016] : DM: ooc Guthmund: I'll assume you have a variety of small trade goods and trinkets
[Wed Dec 21 21:14:18 2016] : Guthmund: ooc looking for unusual stones, tindertwigs, tanglefoot bags etc.
[Wed Dec 21 21:14:30 2016] : DM: ooc an exact inventory would be more like "Accountancy: the RPG" :-p
[Wed Dec 21 21:14:42 2016] : Guthmund: ooc just 'some stuff' is fine
[Wed Dec 21 21:14:53 2016] : DM: Exploring the areas along the way, you find little of interest: until, on a hill, you see a old tree that was struck by lightning long ago. The isolated dead tree looks like a claw stretching at the sky, and is obviously the one on the sketch map you found
[Wed Dec 21 21:15:04 2016] : DM: ooc (on the body of the dead bandit in the spider's nest)
[Wed Dec 21 21:15:16 2016] : Alhandra: ooc I HAVE THE TREE
[Wed Dec 21 21:15:21 2016] : Alhandra: ooc on my FB profile ;)
[Wed Dec 21 21:15:24 2016] : DM: ooc :-)
[Wed Dec 21 21:15:27 2016] : Guthmund: "Well, do we look into this now or on the way back?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:15:40 2016] : Eadfrid: "Let's go now."
[Wed Dec 21 21:15:47 2016] : Guthmund: ooc you should have one called 'lastgood.xml' in your folder
[Wed Dec 21 21:16:25 2016] : DM: Survival checks, please (Guthmund, you can add your Track bonus if any)
[Wed Dec 21 21:16:32 2016] : Guthmund: Track: [1d20(10) + 7] = 17
[Wed Dec 21 21:16:34 2016] : Alhandra: Survival: [1d20(3) + 2] = 5
[Wed Dec 21 21:17:01 2016] : Guthmund: ooc it's level/2 so still +1, but still... +1
[Wed Dec 21 21:17:03 2016] : Eadfrid: Survival: [1d20(14) + -1] = 13
[Wed Dec 21 21:17:39 2016] : DM: Guthmund spots a patch of disturbed earth near the roots of the tree, before Alhandra manages to step on it.
[Wed Dec 21 21:18:00 2016] : Guthmund: "Whoah... Just there by your foot"
[Wed Dec 21 21:18:19 2016] : Guthmund: "Let's take a look down there"
[Wed Dec 21 21:18:41 2016] : Alhandra: "Oops"
[Wed Dec 21 21:18:46 2016] : Eadfrid: ooc diremolehill?
[Wed Dec 21 21:18:48 2016] : Alhandra: "What am I looking at?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:18:50 2016] : DM: After a few minutes of digging, you find a heavy leather cloak, wrapped around a few items
[Wed Dec 21 21:18:54 2016] : DM: ooc lol
[Wed Dec 21 21:18:55 2016] : Alhandra: ooc whackamole!
[Wed Dec 21 21:19:08 2016] : Guthmund: Guthmund starts digging with the spade he got from Oleg (as he's now needed to dig 4 times)
[Wed Dec 21 21:19:35 2016] : DM: ooc RPG: The Gardening!
[Wed Dec 21 21:19:47 2016] : Guthmund: ooc LOL
[Wed Dec 21 21:20:25 2016] : DM: You find a fine (MW) dagger, a magic wand, a silver ring (not matching the description of Svetlana's ring), and a spellbook.
[Wed Dec 21 21:20:41 2016] : DM: Rainwater has damaged many of the pages, but it's probably still worth something.
[Wed Dec 21 21:21:29 2016] : Alhandra: "Interesting"
[Wed Dec 21 21:21:33 2016] : Alhandra: "What's this doing here?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:21:57 2016] : Alhandra: ooc can I read magic or something or spellcraft the book to see what's in there?
[Wed Dec 21 21:22:22 2016] : Guthmund: ooc read magic is an orison, do you have it?
[Wed Dec 21 21:22:45 2016] : Alhandra: ooc orison? I don't know what an orison is. It's a level 0 spell?
[Wed Dec 21 21:22:52 2016] : Guthmund: ooc yes
[Wed Dec 21 21:23:00 2016] : Guthmund: ooc silly name ;-)
[Wed Dec 21 21:23:23 2016] : Alhandra: ooc I mean, I know what an orison is. IRL :P (oraison in French)
[Wed Dec 21 21:23:33 2016] : Alhandra: ooc but not sure how that works here.
[Wed Dec 21 21:23:40 2016] : Guthmund: ooc I didn't ;-)
[Wed Dec 21 21:24:37 2016] : DM: ooc Wizard spells: Identify, Mage Armour, Reduce Person, Silent Image, and Unseen Servant.
[Wed Dec 21 21:24:58 2016] : Guthmund: ooc you pick level 0 spells that you know
[Wed Dec 21 21:25:08 2016] : Guthmund: ooc you can cast them at will
[Wed Dec 21 21:25:10 2016] : DM: There's little else to see, so you press on. As you explore to the south, the old sycamore tree is very obvious: it's a huge old tree, a hundred feet tall in the middle of scrubland.
[Wed Dec 21 21:25:19 2016] : DM: ooc brb
[Wed Dec 21 21:25:56 2016] : DM: ooc back
[Wed Dec 21 21:26:17 2016] : Guthmund: ooc emphasising the 'r' there
[Wed Dec 21 21:26:45 2016] : DM: ooc lol. Just moving through to the sitting room - Sarah has stopped playing piano so we're back on the sofa
[Wed Dec 21 21:26:51 2016] : Guthmund: "Do you know anything about the wand?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:27:34 2016] : Guthmund: ooc that is spellcraft
[Wed Dec 21 21:28:07 2016] : Guthmund: ooc might be worth detect magic too - see if the ring is magical
[Wed Dec 21 21:28:16 2016] : Alhandra: [1d20(18) + 2] = 20
[Wed Dec 21 21:28:21 2016] : Alhandra: ooc spellcraft
[Wed Dec 21 21:28:46 2016] : DM: ooc the wand is magical; Alhandra thinks it's a fire spell but it's not a cleric spell - the magic is strange to her
[Wed Dec 21 21:28:52 2016] : DM: The ring is not magical.
[Wed Dec 21 21:29:09 2016] : Guthmund: "Good work Alhandra"
[Wed Dec 21 21:30:06 2016] : Guthmund: "Let's continue"
[Wed Dec 21 21:30:16 2016] : DM: There's little else to see, so you press on. As you explore to the south, the old sycamore tree is very obvious: it's a huge old tree, a hundred feet tall in the middle of scrubland.
[Wed Dec 21 21:31:26 2016] : Eadfrid: "Try and talk to these creatures?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:32:28 2016] : Guthmund: "I say so."
[Wed Dec 21 21:32:43 2016] : Guthmund: "I don't much relish chasing them down tunnels"
[Wed Dec 21 21:32:52 2016] : DM: Approaching the tree?
[Wed Dec 21 21:32:58 2016] : Eadfrid: Eadfrid approaches cautiously on foot
[Wed Dec 21 21:33:00 2016] : Guthmund: "Alhandra, you are far more charming than I am"
[Wed Dec 21 21:33:13 2016] : Guthmund: "Perhaps you should lead the talking"
[Wed Dec 21 21:33:26 2016] : Guthmund: Guthmund follows
[Wed Dec 21 21:33:48 2016] : DM: Perception checks, please
[Wed Dec 21 21:34:17 2016] : Alhandra: Perception: [1d20(10) + 2] = 12
[Wed Dec 21 21:34:38 2016] : Eadfrid: Perception: [1d20(11) + 0] = 11
[Wed Dec 21 21:34:49 2016] : Guthmund: Perception: [1d20(14) + 6] = 20
[Wed Dec 21 21:35:21 2016] : DM: Guthmund spots a hidden entrance, a small tunnel under the tangled roots of the ancient tree.
[Wed Dec 21 21:35:38 2016] : Guthmund: Guthmund points it out
[Wed Dec 21 21:36:03 2016] : Eadfrid: "No lookouts?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:36:28 2016] : Guthmund: "There could be deadly traps just inside the threshold"
[Wed Dec 21 21:36:30 2016] : DM: None visible.
[Wed Dec 21 21:36:37 2016] : DM: Knowledge: Nature, please.
[Wed Dec 21 21:36:44 2016] : Eadfrid: Knowledge: Nature: [1d20(17) + 1] = 18 (untrained: 10)
[Wed Dec 21 21:37:37 2016] : Alhandra: Knowledge (Untrained): [1d20(10) + 0] = 10
[Wed Dec 21 21:38:28 2016] : Guthmund: Knowledge Nature: [1d20(12) + 4] = 16
[Wed Dec 21 21:38:32 2016] : DM: Eadfrid knows only the basics: Mites are cavern-dwellers, not comfortable above ground, but they often ride spiders.
[Wed Dec 21 21:39:08 2016] : DM: Guthmund knows that they're related to fey, but have been part of the world for too long to be as magical - or as dangerous - as they once were.
[Wed Dec 21 21:40:24 2016] : Eadfrid: How large is the tunnel?
[Wed Dec 21 21:41:13 2016] : DM: This entrance is a vertical shaft, about 10' deep. The roots on either side look like they'd be quite easy to climb up and down, but it's narrow enough that you wouldn't have much room to manouever.
[Wed Dec 21 21:42:31 2016] : Guthmund: "Rather than invade, should we try to communicate?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:42:49 2016] : Guthmund: ooc of course this wqould be a better plan with our party face!
[Wed Dec 21 21:42:52 2016] : Eadfrid: "Shame that spell we found wasn't shrink person."
[Wed Dec 21 21:42:55 2016] : Alhandra: ooc brb
[Wed Dec 21 21:43:34 2016] : DM: ooc there was Reduce Person in the spellbook, but you don't have a wizard.
[Wed Dec 21 21:44:57 2016] : Eadfrid: ooc it was. I misremembered it as enlarge person
[Wed Dec 21 21:45:38 2016] : Alhandra: ""I don't think I am going down there"
[Wed Dec 21 21:45:41 2016] : Guthmund: ooc Are none of the party 'little people'?
[Wed Dec 21 21:45:45 2016] : DM: ooc nope
[Wed Dec 21 21:45:54 2016] : Alhandra: "We'll soon be giants under there"
[Wed Dec 21 21:46:17 2016] : Guthmund: "Well, use your most charming voice and see if you can entice them out"
[Wed Dec 21 21:46:29 2016] : Guthmund: "We have trinkets to trade"
[Wed Dec 21 21:47:25 2016] : Alhandra: "Not sure that the fact that I am a woman is of advantage here"
[Wed Dec 21 21:47:28 2016] : Alhandra: "But I can try"
[Wed Dec 21 21:48:09 2016] : Alhandra: Alhandra calls out, putting on the best merchant/charming voice she can
[Wed Dec 21 21:48:18 2016] : Alhandra: Bluff: [1d20(8) + 0 + 0] = 8
[Wed Dec 21 21:48:18 2016] : DM: When Alhandra calls down the hole, it's not that long before a voice calls back.
[Wed Dec 21 21:48:39 2016] : Mite: "Go 'way! What you want anyway?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:49:19 2016] : Alhandra: "Well, we have stuff"
[Wed Dec 21 21:49:33 2016] : Alhandra: "Things and Gizmos you might be interested in"
[Wed Dec 21 21:49:46 2016] : Alhandra: ooc Alhandra puts on her best Arielle voice
[Wed Dec 21 21:49:46 2016] : Mite: "Why?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:50:00 2016] : Mite: The voice is still suspicious.
[Wed Dec 21 21:50:19 2016] : Guthmund: Guthmunf speaks low to Alhandra
[Wed Dec 21 21:50:46 2016] : Guthmund: "I meant that you were not a gruff killer, not that you are a woman"
[Wed Dec 21 21:51:06 2016] : Alhandra: "I see"
[Wed Dec 21 21:51:39 2016] : Alhandra: "Well, we've been told you're always on the lookout for different things"
[Wed Dec 21 21:51:41 2016] : Guthmund: ooc I also assumed our cleric had a positive cha bonus, mine is negative so neutral is better ;-)
[Wed Dec 21 21:52:02 2016] : Alhandra: "interested in novelty and innovation and diversity"
[Wed Dec 21 21:52:10 2016] : Alhandra: "So we came bearing some of that"
[Wed Dec 21 21:52:35 2016] : Mite: "What's a divers itty got to do with it? And who's been talking about me? What are they saying? I'm not listening!"
[Wed Dec 21 21:52:40 2016] : Mite: "La la la la la!"
[Wed Dec 21 21:53:04 2016] : Alhandra: Alhandra sings back
[Wed Dec 21 21:53:20 2016] : Alhandra: "I've got gadgets and gizmos of plenty. I've whozits and wahtsits galore"
[Wed Dec 21 21:53:57 2016] : Mite: ooc Sarah i sseriously happy right now
[Wed Dec 21 21:54:06 2016] : Mite: ooc Disney references always go down well
[Wed Dec 21 21:54:13 2016] : Alhandra: "You want thingamabobs? I've got twenty"
[Wed Dec 21 21:54:15 2016] : Alhandra: ooc rofl
[Wed Dec 21 21:54:42 2016] : Alhandra: "But who cares, no big deal, I will go if you don't want them"
[Wed Dec 21 21:54:57 2016] : Guthmund: ooc go Del! :-)
[Wed Dec 21 21:55:05 2016] : Mite: "What's a whatever? Don't want it. Go 'way."
[Wed Dec 21 21:55:13 2016] : Mite: "What do you want for it anyway?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:55:20 2016] : Mite: ooc Diplomacy check, please.
[Wed Dec 21 21:55:28 2016] : Mite: ooc Serious circumstance bonus for the RP.
[Wed Dec 21 21:55:29 2016] : Alhandra: Diplomacy: [1d20(15) + 0] = 15
[Wed Dec 21 21:56:05 2016] : Alhandra: "I have come such a long way, I was xcurious, wanted to meet you and who knows...maybe be part of your world"
[Wed Dec 21 21:56:31 2016] : Mite: "You stay out! This cavern mine."
[Wed Dec 21 21:56:42 2016] : Mite: "Don't want visitors."
[Wed Dec 21 21:56:46 2016] : Alhandra: "Oh I wasn't going to get in"
[Wed Dec 21 21:56:52 2016] : Alhandra: "Just really wanted to meet you"
[Wed Dec 21 21:57:26 2016] : Mite: "Well you've met me now. Go 'way."
[Wed Dec 21 21:57:32 2016] : Alhandra: "Someone as brainy, and footsy as you. "
[Wed Dec 21 21:57:37 2016] : Alhandra: "Ok."
[Wed Dec 21 21:57:39 2016] : Mite: "Give me a whatever then go away."
[Wed Dec 21 21:57:51 2016] : Alhandra: Alhandra feels discouraged and her voice shows it"
[Wed Dec 21 21:58:01 2016] : Alhandra: Alhandra feels discouraged and her voice shows it

[Wed Dec 21 21:58:23 2016] : Alhandra: "Oh wait. A whatever?"
[Wed Dec 21 21:58:36 2016] : Mite: "Yes! Throw it down."
[Wed Dec 21 21:58:55 2016] : Alhandra: "I have many, you'll have to come and see for yourself, and choose!"
[Wed Dec 21 21:59:03 2016] : Alhandra: "Oh you're going to love them"
[Wed Dec 21 21:59:20 2016] : Mite: "Nope. Not coming out."
[Wed Dec 21 21:59:20 2016] : Alhandra: Alhandra turns to Guthmund
[Wed Dec 21 21:59:36 2016] : Alhandra: "now we need something !" (whispering)
[Wed Dec 21 22:00:19 2016] : Guthmund: Guthmund sparks a tinder twig and drops it in the hole
[Wed Dec 21 22:00:30 2016] : Mite: "ooooooh!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:00:32 2016] : Mite: "More!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:00:46 2016] : Alhandra: "Ha! I knew you'd love it!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:01:03 2016] : Alhandra: "If I throw them all, you won't have any left for yourself!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:01:04 2016] : Mite: "Lots more! Make it lots and lots! THREEEEE!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:01:09 2016] : Alhandra: "Come, please"
[Wed Dec 21 22:01:17 2016] : Alhandra: "I'll show you how these work!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:01:34 2016] : Guthmund: Guthmund whispers
[Wed Dec 21 22:01:36 2016] : Mite: "Go 'way, then show me."
[Wed Dec 21 22:02:02 2016] : Guthmund: "Say he doesn't have to come out, but he can put items to trade out of the hole"
[Wed Dec 21 22:02:29 2016] : Guthmund: "We can tell him if we like them, but we especially like tings"
[Wed Dec 21 22:02:33 2016] : Alhandra: "Well, ok, what do you have so we can trade? I've come to learn!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:02:33 2016] : Guthmund: ooc rings
[Wed Dec 21 22:02:51 2016] : Alhandra: "You don't have to come out, but show me things"
[Wed Dec 21 22:02:58 2016] : Alhandra: "I like things that shine!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:03:06 2016] : Mite: "Got the kobolds' statue! It's their favourite and we stoled it!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:03:13 2016] : Alhandra: "I like round things"
[Wed Dec 21 22:03:15 2016] : Eadfrid: "Round things! Things with holes!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:03:18 2016] : Mite: The mite bursts out cackling
[Wed Dec 21 22:03:26 2016] : Mite: "Not round, no holes!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:03:54 2016] : Alhandra: "Ohhh, the kobold statue! that's pretty neat too."
[Wed Dec 21 22:04:07 2016] : Alhandra: "Oh really, i thought you did have round and shiny things with holes"
[Wed Dec 21 22:04:17 2016] : Alhandra: "Someone told me. But they must have been mistaken"
[Wed Dec 21 22:04:49 2016] : Mite: "Got one. It's boring."
[Wed Dec 21 22:05:19 2016] : Alhandra: "Boring? Well I find those whatevers pretty boring myself"
[Wed Dec 21 22:05:27 2016] : Alhandra: "What's boring to you is not boring to me"
[Wed Dec 21 22:05:34 2016] : Mite: "Here!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:05:37 2016] : Alhandra: "and vice versa, it seems"
[Wed Dec 21 22:06:07 2016] : Alhandra: ooc catch?
[Wed Dec 21 22:06:32 2016] : DM: There's a scurrying at the bottom of the hole, and then an object flies out. When you track it down, you find that it's not actually a ring; it's a piece of wire that's been twisted into a rough loop.
[Wed Dec 21 22:06:40 2016] : Mite: "See? Boooring!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:06:46 2016] : Alhandra: "I see, indeed"
[Wed Dec 21 22:06:49 2016] : Alhandra: "But I like it some"
[Wed Dec 21 22:07:02 2016] : Mite: "Go 'way, then I give you one more."
[Wed Dec 21 22:07:10 2016] : Alhandra: to Guthmund: "please give him another whatever"
[Wed Dec 21 22:07:29 2016] : Guthmund: Guthmund drops an unlighted tinder twig into the hole
[Wed Dec 21 22:07:35 2016] : Alhandra: "It's boring but it reminds me of things shiny and round whith holes"
[Wed Dec 21 22:07:59 2016] : Mite: "That's broken. Want a good one."
[Wed Dec 21 22:08:11 2016] : Guthmund: "Tell him to rub it against the wall to make it light up... but it only works once"
[Wed Dec 21 22:08:17 2016] : Alhandra: "Try and scratch the head on the rock"
[Wed Dec 21 22:08:27 2016] : Alhandra: "Be careful, it lights quick!"
[Wed Dec 21 22:09:02 2016] : Alhandra: "And I have more for that thing more you ahve for me."
[Wed Dec 21 22:09:05 2016] : Mite: There's a flash of light underground, then the flickering flame, then an abrupt bout of high-pitched swearing
[Wed Dec 21 22:09:13 2016] : Alhandra: ooc ouch.

[Wed Dec 21 22:12:49 2016] : Eadfrid: "Is it the right ring?"
[Wed Dec 21 22:13:16 2016] : DM: ooc it's a very simple silver band, slightly scratched, but that's what you were looking for.
[Wed Dec 21 22:13:37 2016] : Guthmund: "It seems to be"
[Wed Dec 21 22:14:27 2016] : Guthmund: "Shall we head West and explore the land on the way back?"

[Wed Dec 21 22:18:46 2016] : Guthmund: ooc or moose? I get confused between the American and English meanings!
[Wed Dec 21 22:19:03 2016] : Alhandra: ooc Alhandra does not see the red hooded man at the head o fthe herd, on his sleigh :P

[Wed Dec 21 22:20:35 2016] : DM: You arrive back at Oleg's a couple of days later, and Svetlana is overjoyed to have her ring back.
