10th session

Pretty good game.
We headed back to the trading post to turn in the ring and inform our patrons that the Kobolds promised to behave themselves. There we learned that if we kill or capture the Stag lord we will be richly rewarded.
The GM made a subtle declaration to me that going further south would result in death and anal rape, not necessarily in that order. So we explored west, first we found a grave then we found a hot springs and then we found a statue of the god Erastil.
Well, the grave we mostly ignored even after it was hinted that there might be treasure in it, grave robbing not being a habit that came easily to us good types. The hot springs immediately sprang into life as a TV trope as the Sorceress immediately stripped and jumped in the spring, the female paladin started to join her. It was amusing until the the giant frogs flanked the sorceress and tried to eat her, thats when it got hilarious.
We fought off the frogs and had our hot springs episode. The next day we located a second shrine to Erastil in the form of a dirty statue, we had previously had a vision of a hunting lodge behind the statue. So we decided to clean the statue and say a few prayers and that got us the effects of a keen edge spell for a week.
I took the opportunity at Oleg's to write my family to send a crew of miners and construction workers to us as well as some of my families men at arms. A group that knew me better would ask question about why the solder's are wearing my heraldry and not the group's.
Restoring the temple/running a mine/building a hunting lodge all play to my character's strengths. Some people may be bored by those little details but I freaking live for them. I am going to be able to make my mark on the greenbelt, first by restoring a temple and building a hunting lodge, later I will have the skilled labor necessary to accomplish my other goals.
First we have to finish exploring the map and kill some bandits.

(5) Cairne: Hiya segrid
(6) Segrid: Weren't you talking about doing some more exploration before returning to Oleg's?
(5) Cairne: yes, I but I had a change of heart, I have a feeling the worst things are at the bottom of the map and wat to head back up top, besides it does not help my role as priest of the goddess of olove and beauty by delaying two weeks before getting a wedding ring back to a loving couple.
(6) Segrid: Maybe we could bring them down to the temple with the priets and have him do a rededication ceremony...
(6) Segrid: (priest)
(6) Segrid: a "second wedding" as it were
(5) Cairne: when we make the region mrore safe.
(6) Segrid: Sure. I think we need to get the ball rolling with sending out for miners/guards/etc. as well as laborers to restore the temple. I'd also like to send this new shield off to get magically enhasnced, reprovision my arrows, etc.
(5) Cairne: at the end of this ap I'll enchant your shield
(5) Cairne: also you should really look into a rank of boywer/fletcher for arrows

(7) Zelata: Had to go and buy a lotion just for my hands :)
(6) Segrid: At least you're not working with greasy stuff
(7) Zelata: Yeah :P
(7) Zelata: Customers are rude, they don't seem to realise I am making thier food and that I can easily slip stuff in :\

(10) Andraste (enter): 19:07
(6) Segrid: It will give us a chance to catch up, inform them of the peace accord with the kobolds, etc
(9) Zelata: ((hola Andraste!))

(5) Cairne: (Pharast is march in case people where wondering)
(10) Andraste: (Apologies for being late, and hello people))
Attempting to assign the role of Player to (10) Andraste...
(4) DM: I'm going to fast-forward a little now.
(4) DM: It takes you about two days to get back to Oleg's.
(5) Cairne: We solved the mystery of the madwoman who was starting fires
(4) DM: Exploring hex 2-7 shows it to be another plains hex.
(5) Cairne: (polishing the ring with prestdigitation for extra shine)
(9) Zelata: Zelata is sitting down listening to Oleg scold her once more, with a new black scorch mark on his wall. She doesn't seem to comprehend or even care what is being said to her, she's looking about with a bored expression upon her childish features.
(4) DM: It is late on 26 Pharast when you reach Oleg's.
(4) DM: Everyone has gone to bed except the sentry.
(9) Zelata: ((what is Pharast?))
(4) DM: (look up above about 10 lines...)
(5) Cairne: (basically its march)
** (8) Carden rest uneasily tonight as he feels something is amiss in the air but eventually does enter the dreamscape **
(5) Cairne: (Mid spring)
(6) Segrid: Who was taking the wand? And the boots? I'm pretty sure we decided on the bracers, but I don't know about those 2 (and were we selling the sickle?)
(5) Cairne: I was wondering if I could hang on to the wand, burny got the last one.
(10) Andraste: (I missed loooting division xD))
(6) Segrid: sounds good Cairne
(5) Cairne: sweet
(4) DM: The next morning (27 Pharast) you awaken to the smells of breakfast foods prepared by Svetlana.
(5) Cairne: I can actually do damage to a target.
(4) DM: While you are eating, Oleg approaches and asks to see you in his office when you are done.
(5) Cairne: Does he have a question mark or an exclamation mark over his head?
(6) Segrid: "Mnnnn... food I didn't have to cook." Segrid goes about his morning preparation whistling softly.
(5) Cairne: :P
** (10) Andraste enjoys the simple but filling food, looking at everyone whilst doing so. **
** (8) Carden finishes breakfast and heads to the office (I will take boots even no one wants them) **
(5) Cairne: 114.28 gp for everyone, putting the trading post credit in the kitty.
(4) DM: Are you giving Oleg Svetlana's ring?
** (8) Carden lets someone else do the honors **
(5) Cairne: Absolutely, and casting guidance and touch of luck on any attempt to return it in a romantic getsture.
(6) Segrid: I think Cairne should present it.
(8) Carden: (Carden will only take 110 of that 114.28)
** (10) Andraste looks at everyone else and wonders who else will reunite the ring with its true owner. **
(6) Segrid: It being a love token.
** (4) Oleg invites you into his office. **
(5) Cairne: Guys we quietly hand it to Oleg and let him be the hero.
** (8) Carden nods in agreement with Cairne **
(4) Oleg: "Come on in, uh, what's that? Is that Svetlana's ring?"
(6) Segrid: "Good morning, Master Olaf."
** (6) Segrid beams. **
(5) Cairne: I hope so, otherwise another couple is missing their ring.
(10) Andraste: "Good morning, Olaf," she says, bowing down with a small smile.
(10) Andraste: "I think you would know best,"
(4) Oleg: "Let me give it a closer look..yes, dog gone it, that's it!"
(4) Oleg: "Where did you find it?"
(6) Segrid: "Excellent news!"
(11) Zelata (enter): 19:19
(4) Oleg: (By the way, the name's Oleg, not Olaf!)
(11) Zelata: ((sorry, internet is being a dunce))

(9) Zelata (exit): 19:20
(10) Andraste: (whoops xD))
(11) Zelata: "Oleg, I am sorry that I burned stuff! I was just so bored!" Zelata said, bored. "I wanna go see the sparkles again!"
(6) Segrid: "Funny story that. The bandits stole it from her, the mites stole it from them, and then the kobolds, under the orders of a reincarnated gnome, stole it from the mites. They returned it to us as a gesture of thanks and friendship."
(5) Cairne: Well, first some badits told us they took it, and then we found out that some mites stole it from them, and then some kolbolds took it from then, and then a gnome stole it from them, we took it from the gnome.
** (8) Carden smirks at the story **
(10) Andraste: "If only we had a bard to spin a comedic tale about that quest," she says.
(4) Oleg: "Well, all that matters now is that you've returned it, for which I am very grateful."
(5) Cairne: (I bury the Gnome on the first night of travel, and mark its grave)
** (6) Segrid looks at Cairne with a smile. **
(4) Oleg: "As I said before, you've now got a 1000 gp of credit here at the post."
(6) Segrid: "You are most generous, Master Oleg."
(5) Cairne: Seriously, when I commision that tapestry, like 10 feet are going to be about where that ring went.
(4) Oleg: "Boy, I can't wait to surprise Svetlana tonight!"
** (6) Segrid casts a glance at Andraste. **
(4) Oleg: "Uh, well, business before pleasure, though, right?"
(6) Segrid: "Anything we can do to help make the surprise go smoothly?"
(5) Cairne: Lets call it 875 and consider the two tent's paid, we will be needing four more but there is no rush.
(4) Oleg: "The reason I called you in here was to give you these parcels that just arrived from Restov."
** (10) Andraste raises a brow at Segrid, along with a smirk. **
(6) Segrid: "Parcels." Segrid quirks an eyebrow.
** (4) Oleg pushes them across his desk to you. **
** (6) Segrid blushes slightly at Andraste catching him looking her way. **
(4) DM: The first parcel contains a note and 800 gp reward money for "taming the kobolds."
** (6) Segrid turns his focus on the parcels. **
(5) Cairne: (hence the 114 gp
** (8) Carden quirks a brow at the parcels **
(4) DM: The other parcel contains an official charter from Restov.
(10) Andraste: "ooo, 4 pounds of gold coins," she says/
(6) Segrid: "A charter?"
(4) DM: Basically it states that the Stag Lord is wanted "dead or alive" and you will be "greatly rewarded" if he can be removed from power.
** (6) Segrid looks at the second parcel with more interest. **
(5) Cairne: Kill the stag lord? Ok.
(10) Andraste: "Well this is interesting," she says, looking at the piece of paper, "Apparently Restov has taken a keen interest in seeing the Stag Lord's empire of banditry come to an end.
(6) Segrid: "Hmmmn. Seems like we're destined to clash with this beast of a man."
(6) Segrid: "Hope they don't mind if we throw his body in the river when we're done with him."
(6) Segrid: "It would be interesting to take him alive, too."
(5) Cairne: (we will be keeping his helm)
(6) Segrid: "But would not give that river spirit any rest."
** (10) Andraste nods at Segrid, "I am inclined to agree with Restov and you," she notes, "In any case, we should probably find out where his main camp is." **
(6) Segrid: "I don't imagine he's the repenting kind, however."
** (8) Carden nods "Lots a area to southwest to check" **
(5) Cairne: I don't feel physically or spiritually ready to take on the stag lord as of yet. How about a hunt for tatzlewyrms or Tuskgutter?
(10) Andraste: "Well perhaps we should explore uncharted areas and hope the location of these marks land on our laps."
(11) Zelata: ((GRAH! WHY WON'T IT UNFREEZE! Sorry, it froze, and I was just now spammed with everthing))
(8) Carden: "I agree with Andraste on this"
(5) Cairne: (red line is my thinking)
(6) Segrid: "Aye, but we should also keep our ears open for information about this man and his fortress. Perhaps we will run into some more of his men and be able to gather some more intelligence."
(5) Cairne: How do you folks feel about my plan to hire miners and construction workers?
(11) Zelata: Zelata grabs her bags and follows the others and says to Andraste "Can I come with you guys?Or are you going to leave me behind with mean Olefis?" she said, making a pouty face befitting a 5 year old, not a 17 year old.

(5) Cairne: http://www.rpgobjects.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=18191#p18191
(10) Andraste: "I am certain Oleg would want you to follow us anyway," she says, lightly chuckling at Zelata.
(5) Cairne: Zel aged 3 years in one day>
(5) Cairne: ?

(8) Carden: "I have no preference Cairne"
(11) Zelata: ((typo, sorry, my left hand is broken, am only able to use 2 fingers from it to type, sorry :P))
(10) Andraste: "Indeed perhaps after we made a run, we can go visit the Temple and see how Brother Jhod is doing."
(11) Zelata: 14**
** (8) Carden nods **
(11) Zelata: Zelata bounces around and says happily "Woopee! Do I gt to burn stuffs? I love burning stuff!" she said with relish, her deep red eyes full of wonder and exitement.
(5) Cairne: If I send a letter to my kin It would take easily two weeks before he would see it, and so it would be like a month and a half before we saw miners.

(5) Cairne: then I recomend that exploring pattern, I want to knwo what is going on for miles around our site and our mine.
(5) Cairne: especially since the mine is basically going to be paying for the temple.
(15) Segrid: "Sounds good. I think we may wish to reprovision some of our equipment for the trip."
(11) Zelata: "Temple? We're building a temple?"
(14) Carden: "Sounds good"
(5) Cairne: and if we get short on money we can get devil chills tainet blankets and give them to the kolbolds
(5) Cairne: restoring a temple.
(11) Zelata: Zelata bounces around when she hears about her Kobold friends and then her face gets serious before turning to Zelata and says "I want Rabbit Slayer back! He stoleded it from me!"

(16) Andraste: "Lets be off, Trolls don't slay themselves," she says, smiling.
(11) Zelata: "I agree! Poor bear! You guys were so mean to it!"
(5) Cairne: Remember the temple where two people where raised fromt he dead by Erastil? Its a ruin and we have the holy task of restoring it and honoring the land.
** (14) Carden collects 10 days of rations before leaving **
(11) Zelata: "Trolls! AGAIN?!" she begins to make sounds of intense excitement in her throat.
(5) Cairne: carden we have like 2 weeks of food.
** (11) Zelata collects a couple more daggers and a Quarter Staff before leaving. **
** (16) Andraste calms Zelata down with a hand, "Yes, trolls. And we all know fire is their only weakness, you have a duty to save your spells in case the nasty trolls come out." **
** (16) Andraste is mostly smiling and seems to be joking. **
** (15) Segrid finds himself strangely glad to heading on the road again. A warm bed and hot food are all well and good, but Oleg's feels more like a reststop than a home. **
(14) Carden: (for the whole group or individually?)
(4) DM: You spend the rest of the 27th and part of the 28th traveling to hex 2-2, then spend the rest of the 28th exploring hex 2-2.
(11) Zelata: Zelata takes Andraste completely serious and nods and her face resembling that of a child trying to be serious "I will! I will not cast ANY spells!"
(4) DM: Hex 2-2 is a plains hex.
(5) Cairne: Ok, I write up letters to my father, mother and siblings and friends (there is no cable, writing long letters is what people do) wizard mark them and seal them ans ask oleg to send them.
(4) DM: Camping that night is uneventful and you head out for hex 2-1 in the morning.
(11) Zelata: Zelata is using rocks and stuff to carve stuff into her staff in between stops.
(16) Andraste: "Still not saddle sore yet Segrid?" she jokes.
(4) DM: Hex 2-1 is also a plains hex.

(11) Zelata: ((grabbing my sheet hold up))
(15) Segrid: "I guess not." he smiles back.
(4) DM: Cairne, you notice what looks like a pile of stones lying hidden amid an overgrown section of blackberries just off the trail.

(4) DM: It looks like it might be a stone pile grave (or cairne)
(5) Cairne: Stop everyone
(4) DM: lying hidden amid an overgrown section of blackberries just off the trail.
** (15) Segrid stops, looking at Cairne **
(5) Cairne: (dismount, draw dagger)
(17) Andraste: "Hmm...blackberries."
(4) DM: *cairn
** (17) Andraste says before turning her attention to the Cairn, "A grave?" **
(5) Cairne: Everyone, look out at that cluster of blackberries.
(11) Zelata: Zelata instantly stops, curious, she heads over and begins removing rocks and setting them off into the forest a bit (or off to the side)) and eats a blackberry before saying "Why do ypeople just pile rocks?"
** (15) Segrid dismounts, sliding next to Cairne **
(5) Cairne: could be a lot of things, Carden would you be so kind as to check?
(5) Cairne: I mean Segrid
(11) Zelata: Continuing to remove the rocks she will grab a blackberry occasionally.
** (15) Segrid walks towards the pile, looking for any markings or indications of who or what may be buried here **
(5) Cairne: Andraste, I would not judge you harshly if you had an arrow nocked.
** (14) Carden quirks a brow and as he watches Segrid **
(4) DM: (you can make a knowledge(local) check if you have it)
(15) Segrid: "Don't diturb that, Zelata, it could be someone's grave."
(4) DM: The cairn looks to be many years old.
(15) Segrid: (nope just geo and nature)
(4) DM: Anybody have know(local)?
(11) Zelata: Zelata stops and frowns before saying "Why weren't they buried? Who wants to have a grave ABOVE ground?" she says eating some more black berries.
(11) Zelata: ((Nope))
(15) Segrid: "Sometimes, especially in winter, or if you don't have the right tools, this is the only way."
(11) Zelata: Frowning Zelata says "Can I burn it?"
(15) Segrid: "It's better than being left to the elements."
(18) Andraste (enter): 19:50
(4) DM: Well, none of you are sure, but you've heard that barbarian tribes roamed this area many years ago before being driven east.

(5) Cairne: Any signs of boars or wyrms?
** (14) Carden rides along; is surprised not to see much **
(4) DM: Not in these plains hexes, but you can see that the woods of the Narlmarches resumes towards the SE.
(5) Cairne: OK, lets be careful allot of places a bandit can hide in those woods. And Zel might get twitchy and burn some people.
(5) Cairne: she burned me yesterday.
(15) Segrid: "Keep sharp."
(15) Segrid: "To be fair, you doused her first."

(20) Andraste: "Come Zelata, I'll make you another sandwich, toasted too," she says.
(11) Zelata: "I thought some sandwich stealing orcwhich was after me! So I attacked!" She said, making a pouty face.
(11) Zelata: I nod and follow Andraste, sticking her tounge out at Cairne when Andraste wasn't looking.
(5) Cairne: We are strange people, I'm begining to see why we where driven out into the forest.

(4) DM: It is a clear morning when you awaken on 1 Gozran.
(15) Segrid: "I might know a guy who could arrange that, beautiful."
** (15) Segrid reddens at Zelata's question. "Umnn.. sandwiches?" **
(11) Zelata: Zelata wakes up, and rubs the sleep from her eyes, placing her teddy bear back in her backpack, she looks around to make sure no one noticed, and then leaces Cairnes bootlaces together.
** (20) Andraste smiles and it shows, "Heehee," **
(11) Zelata: "I love sandwhiches!"

** (15) Segrid checks his weapons and horse for faery tricks **
(20) Andraste: "Something smells..." she says, waiting for someone to make a comment about Zelata.
(15) Segrid: "Hmn."
(11) Zelata: Zelata looks at all the wood and looked at Andraste motioning to the trees "Please? Just one spell?"
(15) Segrid: "Wonder what that is?" looks around
(4) DM: As you continue along, you find that the source of the odor appears to be two hot springs which bubble up from the ground at the source of the Skunk river, and there is also a 150' diameter pond at the source of the river.
(15) Segrid: Perception: [1d20+5] => [18,5] = (23); +2 vs. Humans
(11) Zelata: "I bet Cairne forgot to take a shower and this is what he smells like!" she says sticking her tounge out at Cairne.
(20) Andraste: "Ooo hot springs!" she cries in delight.
(11) Zelata: Zelata rushes over and touches the hot spring.
** (15) Segrid stares at the natural wonder before them. **
(11) Zelata: She then dunks her head into it for a refreshing moment.
** (14) Carden covers his nose for abit for the smell "Not something I really wanted to see or smell" **
(4) DM: Despite the smell, the hot springs are really rather pleasent to relax in.
** (15) Segrid looks around to make sure there aren't any animals making the springs their home. **
(11) Zelata: Zelata then strips to her underclothes (not much difference than her sorceerer napkin) and jumps in.
** (15) Segrid looks at Andraste. "If you want to take a dip, we could set up a watch." **
(15) Segrid: "Umn, I mean, you know, perimiter."

(11) Zelata: Zelata splashes around laughing.
(11) Zelata: Looking behind her she screeches "FROGS!"

(4) DM: Andraste, see whisper
(11) Zelata: ((hehe, that's what Wish is for :P))
(15) Segrid: "Good morning Andraste. Looks like the springs were good to you,as you are looking particularly radiant this morning." Segrid smiles, keeping his voice low.
(5) Cairne: I will follow Zel around with a Heightened maximized create water to prevent her from burning the world.
(11) Zelata: [1d4+5] => [2,5] = (7)
(11) Zelata: ((sorry))

Attempting to assign the role of Player to (31) Andraste...
** (31) Andraste wakes up, rubbing her head, "I had a strange vision...the Statue of Erastil told me "To the west." she says *repost* **
(11) Zelata: Zelata mounts up as well and follows Andraste close, almost like a puppy.
** (14) Carden listens to Andraste "Very well" **
(15) Segrid: "Well, I guess that may change our plans some."
(15) Segrid: "West then, agreed?"
(5) Cairne: Well, If Earstil said it it cant lead to our painful deaths!
(5) Cairne: (cast Prestidigitation to clean up, prays, studies.)
** (31) Andraste pets Zelata, giving her a butterfly net from her saddle. **
** (15) Segrid manages a half smile "Unless he plans on collecting our unpaid debt. But I'm told he has patience." **
(31) Andraste: "Here you go, Zelata. A present for saving your spells for the trolls!"
** (31) Andraste nods her head at Segrid, "A debt I will try and pay in my own way." **
(4) DM: Hex 5-2 is also a forest hex.
(11) Zelata: Squeals like a small child she pulaces it across her lap and fiddles with it for the rest of the day.
(5) Cairne: Has anyone seen my bootlaces?
(15) Segrid: Me smiles at Andraste, thinking "A bunch of faithful children to carry on, maybe."
(4) DM: While exploring during the early afternoon, as you approach a bushy area, Andraste and Carden both feel safe and at peace.
(15) Segrid: Then, as if realizing what he was really thinking, clears his throat and begins prepping his horse
(11) Zelata: Zelata says "I haven't!"
(15) Segrid: "Well, at least if they're gone, they can't be tied
** (14) Carden smiles at the feeling and looks to Andraste "Do you feel that Andraste?" **
(4) DM: As you get towards the center of the brushy clearing, you can see the top of a statue with a stag's head sticking out above the brush below

(15) Segrid: "The statue!"
(15) Segrid: "It's real."
** (32) Andraste utters a small prayer to Erastil. **
(5) Cairne: (so where there any wagons at Olegs?
** (15) Segrid gazes in wonder. "Shame it's been overgrown. We should clear it up, restore it to its former glory." **
(11) Zelata: Zleata looks up in wonder before saying "IT'S DEER MAN!"
** (14) Carden does so as well **
** (15) Segrid begins pealing the moss off the statue. **
(5) Cairne: Zel Shush.

** (15) Segrid examines the statue more closely. **
(15) Segrid: Perception: [1d20+5] => [5,5] = (10); +2 vs. Humans
** (15) Segrid scrubs the dirt off **
(4) DM: Description:
Statue of Erastil (Standard)

If the statue is cleaned and a worshiper of Erastil prays
before it, the god of the hunt takes note. All slashing and
piercing weapons within 60 feet of the statue gain the
benefit of a keen edge spell (CL 20th) for 1 week if this small respect is paid to the statue--urther cleanings and prayer do not cause a repeat of this one-time blessing.
(11) Zelata: ((oi! I already did! I cast prestidigitation))
(11) Zelata: Gets down, and is impelled to remove all the dirt and grime. ((outta respect for the deer head only :\ ))
(33) Andraste (enter): 21:23
(33) Andraste: (darn net)
** (14) Carden does another prayer after it the statue is cleaned **
** (15) Segrid lays an arrow at the foot of the statue, saying a brief prayer of thanks. **
** (33) Andraste prays once more once the statue is cleaned. **

(5) Cairne: who is the strongest people in the group?
(15) Segrid: (str 14)
(5) Cairne: Ok I have a plan for moving this statue but it is going to take a bigassed wagon.
(33) Andraste: "We could start a small shrine here?"
(33) Andraste: "What do you think?'
(5) Cairne: we really need to make a very slow beeline for the temple and see if we can take a large wagon to the temple without cutting a road.
(15) Segrid: "A shrine would be nice, maybe eventually build a chapel?"
(5) Cairne: As I recall we where implored in a dream to restore the statue.
(5) Cairne: tot he temple.
(15) Segrid: "Good idea, checking to see if we can find a trail."
(5) Cairne: That was part of our mission right GM the dream told us a statue belonged at the temple?
(4) DM: I don't remember exactly.
(4) DM: I think you had dreams of the statue existing outside a hunting lodge.
(4) DM: This is the site of the old lodge, which has rotted away over the centuries.
(4) DM: All that is now left is this statue.
(5) Cairne: OK, I use proffesion Architect to see if I can spot the remains of a hunting lodge.

(4) DM: The peaceful feelings you get from being around the statue make you think that this would be a good place to camp at tonight.
(14) Carden: "I say we plan to rebuild the lodge here to mark the trail of safe passage"
(5) Cairne: I'll schetch something out when we are not fearing for a bandit attack
(15) Segrid: "A lodge with a chapel and supply depot for hunters, that would be nice."
(11) Zelata: "I can make the fires and catch butterfly's for it!" Zelata chirped happily.

(4) DM: Notes: This is a priest of Erastil named Jhod Kavken (NG male human cleric
4), a traveling cleric and hunter who claims to have heard
of the exploration charter and came to Oleg’s to offer his
help. In truth, Jhod has been all but excommunicated from
the priesthood after he helped form a lynch mob against a
traveler his home village thought was a werewolf responsible
for several recent killings. Only a few hours after they lynched
the man, the true killer was caught by a hunter and revealed
to be nothing more sinister than a particularly wily worg.

An investigation by the church of Erastil followed, and they
found Jhod’s involvement in the village’s overly aggressive
pursuit of the traveler’s lynching to be actionable. Only the
fact that the traveler happened to be a bandit spy sent to town
to look the place over (a fact that Jhod discovered only after
the man was executed and his belongings were searched)
kept the church from fully excommunicating the priest—
and even then, only if he accepted exile. And so Jhod traveled
from his home in Galt up the Sellen and into Numeria. From
there, his wanderings eventually brought him east into
(38) Andraste (enter): 21:42
(4) DM: This is the info about Jhod Kavken's background
(5) Cairne: I was going to combine enlarge and ant haul so two men could lift the statue
(4) DM: but you can think about how you would have witnessed all this in a dream
Attempting to assign the role of Player to (38) Andraste...
(4) DM: so your dream gives you insight into Jhod's background
(11) Zelata: ((gotta go, boss called, I need to go in, cya! :D))
(14) Carden: (ok)
(4) DM: ok
** (14) Carden will plan to tell Andraste in secret later **
(4) DM: we'll stop here for tonight anyways
(11) Zelata: ((BYE! :) ))
