Damn I have fallen behind. Only part of it can be blamed on my shoulder dislocation. Also computer troubles now. But checking into say I'm gonna get back into this. Andrew shall have trauma from Retconning and explaination. :P

I'll have a new computer by the 24th. At least that's when it should arrive.

I noticed Aria was not on the list of characters who are standing outside the Duke's manor. Was this an oversight, or did she wander off somewhere?

-Aryxymaraki

Total oversight on my part. I'll edit the post.

I am currently recovering from the hike today. I'm also at a loss for words; one of the most stunning places....things...I have ever seen. Anyway, I should be back to posting later on Monday.

To be honest I would not have been that surprised if Alex had decided we were being boring and slipped off to kill something :P

So sorry, everybody! Got swallowed whole by a work conference this week. Not much internet access, and never saw the light of day. I'm now sitting in the airport to head home, so we should be able to get back on schedule.

Any ideas for course of action?  Hengist can totally break down the door and demand to tell his side of the story, but I suspect that's no longer exactly where we stand.

Edit:  Or I can go for it.  :)

Maps are back up. I also haven't heard from barkman or Lucasdelsur in a while, which would be unfortunate, seeing as Kaul made off with the carved box...

Phhft. I've been assuming Kaul and Gwydion were slain in the building by the constable.

:)

Also, can we get a new IC thread since it sounds like we're about-facing?

No one said they weren't. To be clear, I haven't heard from the players. Read that as you will.

Dun Dun Dunnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

So, OOC, I suggest we

Retrieve Kaul and Gwydion; starting at the carpenter's place. I suggest furious questioning of those guards if we can't get into the building any other way.

Re: the GM question in IC, I'd say go back to the inn where Kaul left his war dog and ten foot pole, but I can also see going back to the carpenter's.

question for Boblonlaw:  do I have a sense of when we lost the Marshall?  Is it plausible he's doubled back to Eduard's?

Constable Thorsdun headed in the direction of Lord Mallory's manor, but you lost sight of him after he passed 'round the corner of the ruined building across from the Silver Scale Inn, and the party stood discussing things for several minutes more before following. It's certainly possible he could have doubled-back without the party seeing him.

Anyone else going to respond to Hengist's suggestion to go back to the inn? I'm going to move things ahead in that direction tonight without another response.

I'm good with that. Maybe the war dog will have the sense to help us find Kaul if he's not in the carpenter's shop anymore.

No worries. I've had a bunch of stuff go haywire in the last two days, but there's post updating the status of the party up, as well as some PMs sent. Let me know what the next plan is once you've had a chance to regroup.

Gwydion's last known location was in the carpenter's workshop, right?

Yes, in the workshop thread I believe he secreted himself away behind a secret compartment; that all being OOC knowledge, obvs. Not sure if Kaul would have witnessed more, he was with him.

Kaul saw Gwydion find the compartment, but then left, if I recall correctly. Hardrada is actually away until Monday, I believe, which is why I haven't been pushing too hard. That's going to change when he gets back, as I'd like to get rolling a bit faster.

And I am back! Was my last "move" clear? It seemed sufficient enough to get me in trouble, which is all you can ask for as a murder hobo.

Yup. Assuming people follow, Kerrick will lead everyone to go engage in potential murder and revolt against the lawful authority of this town.

It's a good thing I'm an ACKS paladin and not a D&D paladin!

I'll ride, but at a walking pace, instead of charging on ahead alone.

(If I left the horse behind, I'd have to leave the flag behind, and that would simply be uncivilized.)

So it seems the party is reunited. The guards are no longer in front of the workshop, and there doesn't seem to be anyone else around in the street.

Strategy question for the group:  I'm increasingly unsure what we get out of going back to the inn.  If we've already been made and are being watched, I suspect we either get ambushed moving there or ambushed once we're there.  At the very least we lose time before we open our Christmas presents and try to figure out our next positive step.

The carpenter's shop has the very obvious drawback of being our known location, but on the other hand it's reasonably defensible - room to ride a horse into, and a top story with shuttered windows to shoot out of.  Even an exit over the palisade if necessary.

My suggestion is to move inside here, shut the doors, open packages, and hear from Gwydion.  It's got that big obvious drawback re location and there's a real chance it turns into combat anyway, so I'm not planting my flag on it and I definitely don't want to spend a turn debating it in the street in character.  So if even one person says "onward to the inn!" Hengist will follow, but that's my thought.

I can get behind that.

We're already marked; staying here theoretically at least keeps the nice lady at the inn out of it, if she's not the ringleader, of course.

Great points. I think the company needs to investigate whatever is happening with Lord Mallory, so passing information at Ned's probably makes that happen faster.

Alright, is the party following Masov's suggestion? That would appear to put Kaul, Gwydion, and Masov inside, with Hengist, Kerrick, Dagmar, Aria, Miska, and Andrew outside (you tell me where), and Kaul's mastiff, Cynis, guarding the doorway...

My suspicion is that while the square footage of the ground floor might be enough for everyone, it's full of junk.

Assuming this is true, Kerrick is perfectly willing to hang out outside the door on watch/guard.

I hoped the same, but that seems thief work. If the thief is not biting... Also, Gwydion found some silver. Now doesn't seem the time to bring it up, but remind me later, and he will share it with the party.

SooOOOooo... there've been suggestions of going back to where the Baron's elven associates were staying, Kaul attempting to open the box, heading to the Temple of Solis, staying put... which is it? Or something else?

Also, I haven't heard from Miska, Andrew, or Aria (it's possible Alex is a little tied up with L&E). They're standing around doing nothing at the moment.

That's a definite plus. She would expect she could make a rather fetching cloak from the bundle of furs.

Gwydion is by nature a thinker rather than a fighter largely due to the lack of an I-win spell. He'd prefer to collect more information. If no one else is persuaded, he'll happily follow.

Kerrick is right now on guard waiting for those inside to figure out what was found in there (including trying to open the box).

He does think in general that it's time to kick down someone's door. If it were up to him, he'd pick the temple, but the elves are fine too.
