G.O. Rakius IV shudders visibly, as he's not always had the best of luck with teleportation, and looks around. "Oh ho! At last the prodigal G.O. has returned to his ancestral home! Minions! Kindly bludgeon that thing into paste, if you will? Also, hi grandma!"

Mortimer Seaton says "Now, my dear princess, what did you say about that date?"
King Hekaton says "What date?"
Zan-Kyri sighs as the kraken finally stops moving. "Well, that was a thing."
Serissa says "um…"
King Hekaton says "First of all, off my throne!"
Serissa says "Yes, pa…"
Serissa climbs off the throne as King Hekaton climbs into it.
Serissa says "Thank you for rescuing my father!"
King Hekaton says "Bah, I totally had it under control"
Zan-Kyri says "Says the guy who was going to run from the kraken before it grabbed him…"
G.O. Rakius IV shrugs and says, "Family. Can't live with 'em, sometimes have to rescue them from evil fis monster cults."
Zan-Kyri says "I mean, what? Who said that?"
King Hekaton says "It was your mother that he insulted…"
Mortimer Seaton says "I was happy to do the honor of rescuing your father."
WaveBreak tests the accoustics of the hall by clicking her toes against the floor then cocking her head to listen to the sounds they make.
King Hekaton says "Well, I guess I must thank you for coming to my aid. Take these favors of the Giant Court." and hands each of you a gold necklace with a conch pendant.
Zan-Kyri walks over to where G.O. and the giant they saved is. "So, what happens now?"
Mortimer Seaton dons his new pendant with pride, welling up with tears a little as it reminds him so much of home.
Serissa says "Father, while you have been gone, the giant kingdom has gone beserk, wreaking havok on the land…"
Weasel pulls the necklace over her head. It hangs down to her knees.
King Hekaton says "Not on my watch! I'll bust heads until they're back under control."
Weasel says "If you could do that sooner, rather than later, I think everyone would be really appreciative. "
WaveBreak tentatively puts the necklace on, while casually fiddling with the conch, bringing the shell to her beak then looking around and letting it drop.
Serissa says "Brave and daring group of adventurers, you have helped restore balance to Faerun."
G.O. Rakius IV looks at the 'reward' with some skepticism and shrugs before pocketing it because jewelery that doesn't make stuff explode isn't really his thing. "It took some doing, oh great great great great grandsire, but I managed to traverse time and space itself to bring these… uhh… 'adventurers' (totally doesn't mean 'pirates and knaves', I swear) together to restore our family to power and… oh, well… I suppose the rest is self evident. Mustn't reveal too much, eh?" he says with a somewhat distracted tone.
King Hekaton looks over at Serissa.
Serissa shrugs
The four guards grab the body of the kraken and carry it off towards the kitchens.
G.O. Rakius IV shouts across the hall, "Save me the pineal gland, will you?! It could be… useful…"
Zan-Kyri says "Sooooooo, anyone gonna answer my question? What happens now?"
King Hekaton says "Show those amulets to any giant in order to receive their help."
King Hekaton says "Happens? Is something else suppose to happen? I plan to get on with my life."
Weasel says "any giant at all? Cause I feel like there are a lot that really don't like us right now. "
King Hekaton says "any giant knows they face the wrath of the king if they turn down aid to the holder of a conch pendant."
Ilyena bows before the King gracefully. "You are most welcome, your Majesty, but we did not do so out of altruism. It is to our mutual benefit that you are restored to your throne."
Zan-Kyri shrugs, not really knowing what he was expecting for an answer.
King Hekaton says "Ah, good, then you expect no reward…"
Mortimer Seaton frowns and then kicks the ground a bit… still wondering about the date but suddenly feeling too shy to ask
Ilyena nods. "I need none, Sire, but the restoration of order to both our realms. My companions however, may have other concerns."
WaveBreak squawks like a chicken that's had it's tail feathers plucked, but manages ti keep her attention on her conch shell.
G.O. Rakius IV pipes up, "Of course I do! I expect to be handsomely rewarded! Do you think us giants just do stuff and not expect something in return? That's just… elf nonsense. Do-gooder nature-and-balance-and-harmony weirdos!"
Serissa says "well, Father, I did agree to go on a date with Mortimer here if they succeeded in returning you…"
King Hekaton looks at G.O. "Yeah, that's what I figu.A DATE?"
Serissa says "yes pa."
G.O. Rakius IV mutters something about lavender-eyed drow ruining the saving-the-world profession for everyone.
King Hekaton says "were you coerced?"
WaveBreak whistles like a canary and repeats (though more softly) in the king's voice, "a date!"
Serissa says "No"
Mortimer Seaton has a cheesy smile start to spread across his face
Weasel elbows Morty, and raises her eyebrows suggestively. 
Mortimer Seaton resists the urge to burst into song and dance
King Hekaton looks towards Morty "Are you at least of royal blood?"
Zan-Kyri says quietly "In his dreams maybe…"
Mortimer Seaton says "Well… you see… I dont know much about my father because he was, well how do I put it nicely, a bit of a reckloose. But my mother was born of the sea and posessed great power over the water. So if not royalty, at least I'm from great power?"
King Hekaton sighs. "Alright, I'll permit it…"
Mortimer Seaton says "Thank you Sir! You won't regret this , I promise."
Serissa holds her hand out to Mortimer. "So then good sir, where will you take me on this date?"
Mortimer Seaton says "Well, I was thinking a nice dinner with a view, maybe to watch the sunset over a field of daisies?"
Zan-Kyri sighs and rolls his eyes, "Oh, Morty, my blue friend, what a romantic you are. Don't ever change."
Serissa says "And how shall we get there?"
Mortimer Seaton says "Well, I had this airship…"
King Hekaton nods to Uthor "Take the rest of them to the treasure room and find them something appropriate…"
Uthor says "Yes, sir"
Weasel says "Well now that we've saved the world, I guess we should get back to our lives? I swear there was something i was supposed to be doing before all hell broke loose, but I can't remember for the life of me what it was. "
Zan-Kyri turns to Weasel, "Well, you could always come with me. I remember you took a liking to gambling."
WaveBreak hoots like a barn owl and happily dances a little closer to the giant called Uthor.
Ilyena ponders this for a moment. "I will be able to begin my studies at the abbey."
Serissa says "I shall be free next Saturday if you would like top pick me up at 8:00"
Mortimer Seaton says "Its a date."
Mortimer Seaton winks in Serissa's direction.
Weasel says "I did like gambling…"
Zan-Kyri says "Did? or still do?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Treasure! Now we're talkin' proper rewards," and follows the other giant.
Ilyena follows the others because she doesn't know how to get out of here without them. 
Uthor sets a box down in front of the group and opens the lid revealing hundreds of trinkets that look like they were salvaged from the sea floor. The trinkets include everything from worthless baubles to fine statuary and jewelry plundered from shipwrecks.
Zan-Kyri says "So, doyou have any alcohol back here? I've been sober for, longer than I can remember."
Zan-Kyri says "And before you ask, yes, that's a bad thing."
Uthor says "This should suffice as a reward. Unless I can interest you in an Apparatus of Kwalish instead?"
Uthor points to a weird looking device in the corner
WaveBreak twitters like a lark and cocks her head from one side to the other before repeating in Uthor's voice, "Apparatus of Kwalish?"
Zan-Kyri says "Does it have anything to do with alcohol? If not, then I'm not interested."
G.O. Rakius IV goes slackjawed and amazed for a moment and says, "Apparatus! Unless you have ancient and terrible magics I can plunder instead, yes, yes that would be amazing."
Uthor opens the door of a large iron barrel, reaches in and pulls a lever. Instantly legs and claws emerge from the barrel making it look like a giant lobster. "It can support a crew of 2 for several hours"
Weasel says "Can it be opperated by one person? "
WaveBreak backs away from the clearly non-flying apparatus and twitters again at the chest of baubles.
Uthor says "yes"
Weasel says "I'll take it. "
Uthor says "Oh, thank the gods. I've been trying to get rid of this thing for years. Obviously a giant won't fit inside."
Uthor takes back the chest of baubles.
Zan-Kyri says "Soooooo, no alcohol I take it?" He sighs.
Uthor says "no alcohol, sorry"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Hey! That's all well and fine for the short person, but this giant demands compensation!"
Zan-Kyri says "Damn. Well, whatever. I know where my first stop will be then."
Weasel says "Sooo… Do I have to climb inside of it to make it work? "
WaveBreak screeches like an annoyed hawk in protest to being left with a short person and a metal seabug.
Uthor says "yes, all of the levers are in there. You must close the door to protect yourself also."
Weasel eagerly climbs inside of the contraption and sends it lurching forward. "Roll out!"
Uthor covers his ears at Wavebreaks noises "Oh, fine! Take the baubles too!"
WaveBreak twitters and nods her thanks to the giant before reaching her hands out to take the chest of baubles.
Uthor leads the group back into the throne room.
Zan-Kyri quickly hops on top of the Apparatus as it passes by. "Hey, Weasel, I hope you don't mind if I catch a ride."
King Hekaton says "Is your reward to your satisfaction?"
Weasel calls out in a muted echo from inside the metal lobster. "Yes, thank you!" 
Zan-Kyri says "Actually, I was wondering, do you have any alcohol to spare? I need some. It's going to be a long day without some."
Zan-Kyri says "If not, it's fine, but I just thought I'd ask."
Serissa nods to a guard who brings a a giant barrel of exquisite wine.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Reward? The gnome hopped in a walking barrel, and the bird snatched up all the shinies. Considering the consequences had we failed, or say… let you sink with the ship…"
King Hekaton says "There should be plenty in the box for you to share…Do you need me to divide it for you?"
WaveBreak cackles like a crow, "Snatched the shinies!"
Zan-Kyri says "Nope, that's fine, thank you." and Promply takes the entire barrel.
G.O. Rakius IV shrugs and says, "I'd rather have that rod… but I suppose I'll inherit it in time anyway…" Pivoting wildly, he shouts, "WWWCHHSHHSH! Bring that junk over her!"
King Hekaton says "Then I shall have Serissa transport you back to your flying conveyance so I can proceed to restore order to the realm."
Weasel says "That would be wonderful thank you! "
Ilyena bows again. "Thank you, Your Majesty. May the Light of Sehanine shine upon you always."
WaveBreak whistles happily and half-dances half-walks toward the man known as G.O.
G.O. Rakius IV twitches a little and says, "Sorry grandpa. Elves… right?"
King Hekaton looks confused.
Serissa leads the group to the Meditation Cave where she bids you to picture the deck of your airship.
Mortimer Seaton says "I will see you soon, my dear. Ill be picking you up, around 8!"
Serissa winks at Mortimer as he disappears
G.O. Rakius IV says, "You can keep the simpleton. He's about as useful as a screen door in an Apparatus of Kwalish."
All six of you appear on the deck of the airship, along with an iron barrel and a giant barrel of wine.
G.O. Rakius IV barely got that last syllable out before reappearing on the deck of the airship and says, "Well, alright then. World saved. Timeline restored. Did we get anything good?" and leans over the kenku with eyebrows raised.
Weasel says "How about that visit to the tavern in Waterdeep? "
WaveBreak picks out a few of the more interesting pieces from the chest, cocking her head as she inspects the item.
Zan-Kyri says "I second the motion to go to the tavern. Drinks will be on me, or the giants, I guess."
G.O. Rakius IV mumbles, "Waterdeep? Why would we want to go to Waterdeep? Do they owe us money?"
Weasel says "Umm… I'm sure someone owes us money."

Session 47 - Boss Fight Part 3

Zan-Kyri heads down the stairs to the lower deck, ignoring the splashing sounds thinking it was Morty or something. He then takes a look around, searching for stuff, especially liquor.
Tholtz Daggerdark's cabin is a mess. Nautical books and navigational charts are strewn across the floor, as are quills, loose sheets of blank parchment, empty wine bottles, and spilled jars of ink. Most of the furniture is bolted to the floor, including an unmade bed with a squid-shaped headboard, a writing desk stained with ink, an open trunk, a slender wardrobe stuffed with old robes, and a wooden cloak rack.
Zan-Kyri rolls 7for a Perception skill check and gets 9.
WaveBreak rolls 13for a Perception skill check and gets 16.
Ilyena also heads down below deck, unaware that there was anything amiss in her search for something that might be useful to free this giant. 
Zan-Kyri looks around at the wine bottles, cursing to himself under his breath at the fact that they were all empty. He then takes to looking in the chest but finds nothing but a couple cloaks. He sighs in defeat at the pointless search.
****This sparsely furnished cabin contains a hammock, a wooden treasure chest with a built-in lock, and a rug made from a yeti's hide.****

Mortimer Seaton hears splashing and immediately runs to the edge of the ship, only to be met by some tentacles. "Hello dear friend! Hows the water? I was thinking about going for a swim!"

Zan-Kyri rolls 7for a Perception skill check and gets 9.
It looks like Tholtz used a knife to carve the words "DRAGON," "IYMRITH," "SISTERS," and "TREACHERY" into the floorboards.
Zan-Kyri hears some more splashing, but chooses to ignore it again, more intrigued by the words seemingly carved into the floor. He takes a mental note of them, then decides to go see if Ilyena has found anything interesting.
Zan-Kyri cancels its move.
Zan-Kyri emerges from below deck, sees the giant kraken, blinks a couple times at it, decides he's seeing things, and continues over to find Ilyena.
Slarkrethel hits Zan-Kyri with Tentacle (x3, 30') for 18 damage (3d6+10 bludgeoning).
Zan-Kyri runs past the "Imaginary Kraken" when all of a sudden he gets smacked on the back of his head. He looks around, and sees Weasel looking at him. Assuming that she did it, he continues on, a little purturbed at the short person's actions.

Slarkrethel uses a Legendary Action.
Slarkrethel Squeezed the ship tightly between his tentacles and the hull starts to crack loudly.
WaveBreak squawks in what is possibly aggravation or perhaps just the crankiness that comes from being both injured and confronted by a giant squid that seems just a touch smitten with the ship she's standing on. Her talons click against the cracking boards as she takes another shot at the beast.
WaveBreak misses Slarkrethel with Hand Crossbow (30/120). 
Ilyena recovers thankfully fast from the effects of the gas, and sorts through the items in the chest. In the end, she decides to take everything to pass out later. Surely the diary will have the clue to unlock the chains. She's about to answer Zan-Kyri when the ship cracks loudly. "What in in the Light of Sehanine are they doing now?" She runs past the monk and up the stairs.

Session 45 - Boss Fight Part 1

 Last session the group questioned Lord Drylund who revealed that King Hekaton was being held on a ship near Purple Rocks, and then his head exploded. You then proceeded to cause havoc in the Grand Dame, headed for Red Larch for a dring, and boarded the airship headed for Purple Rocks.
As we join the group, you are tracking back and forth across the ocean near Purple Rocks, searching for the aforementioned ship.
Zan-Kyri Yawns loudly, "We've been at this for hours. I'm going to go below deck and rest."
G.O. Rakius IV stretches and says, "Lets do this! Onward to victory! Death to the infidels! IA IA!" then looks around and adds, "Oh, and Varis is hungry. Anyone got a baby goat?"
WaveBreak clicks her toes against the wood of the crows nest, while her eyes intently scan the horizon.
Weasel rifles through her bag. "Sorry, no baby goat. All I have are these magical berries that I don't remember picking up." 
Zan-Kyri Sits down on one of the hammoks and brings out one of the leftover mugs of ale. "Ah, I needed this." he says to himself as he lays back and starts drinking the ale.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Shame. Guess you'll have to settle for dreams of innocents, Varis. Good luck finding any here…"
Weasel says "Veris is welcome to the magic berried if she's… he's… they're that hungry."
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Trust me, kiddo. You do not want to smell what happens when Varis eats berries."
Mortimer Seaton Leans against the railing, staring dreamily out over the ocean, and humming a sad but beautiful song, wishing he had a girlfriend. 
Ilyena sits balanced on the railing at the front of the ship looking for any sign of their quarry. Well, ostensibly looking. She was beginning to feel rather fidgety after so long. 
Mortimer Seaton sings under his breath, "My bonnie lies over the ocean, my bonnie lies over the sea, my bonnie lies over the ocean, oh bring back my bonnie to me."
Zan-Kyri Starts brings out his Pan Flute and starts playing a song from his homeland on it. Occasionally taking a pause to drink some more.
WaveBreak mimics the cries of a gull, more out of habit than any real expectation that someone will recognize it as a meaning that she doesn't see any signs of the ship that they seek.
Mortimer Seaton turns around in exasperation, "guys! Why wont anyone date me?"
G.O. Rakius IV shouts up at the kenku on the pole-thingy, "Hey! You see anything worth blowing up yet? Or, you know, any giants surorunded by kraken-worshipping cultists in dirty robes who need baths?"
Ilyena rolls 2for a Perception skill check and gets 9.
Mortimer Seaton says "And are any of the cultists pretty girls?! I can change them! They don't have to be dirty cultists forever. I can save them! "
Zan-Kyri rolls 14for a Constitution check and gets 15.
WaveBreak responds to the one called GO in the voice of some grizzled old sailor, "Vessel, ho! Off the bow! Look lively, mates!"
G.O. Rakius IV walks over and puts a hand on Mortimer's shoulder, before withdrawing it and wiping the dampness off on his pant leg. "I don't know, lad. They might be. I'm guessing they're all disfigured men who can't get dates and rely on 'eldritch powers' to help them capture a few unwilling participants here and there."
Mortimer Seaton turns back around sadly, and tries to enjoy the feeling of sea spray against his skin, making little fish shapes out of the water. 
Ilyena with one last fruitless look toward the horizon, Ilyena hops down from her perch and rejoins the others. "Perhaps it is just that you haven't met someone who is compatible with your lifestyle."
Zan-Kyri Having drunk quite a lot in the short time below deck, he's feeling a bit tipsy, and decides to head up to see what the others are doing.
Mortimer Seaton says "I've never met any other adventurers. Do you think it could happen? "
Zan-Kyri says "Heeeeeeyyyy guyyyys, hows it goin?"
Zan-Kyri says "We find anything yet?"
G.O. Rakius IV whispers, "I see two… well, one and a half, compatible adventuring type ladies right here. You've been through some stuff together! That's like half the work right there."
WaveBreak barks loud enough to be heard over all the chatter below, her voice still that of a seasoned sailor, "LOOK LIVELY, MATES! VESSEL HO!" She stabs a finger toward the front of the ship.
Mortimer Seaton finally hears WaveBreak and looks up from his moping to see the ship in front of them. 
The Morkoth is a bizarre-looking yet seaworthy vessel with a hull that resembles a giant squid. As it plies the Trackless Sea, the top of the forward stabilizing fin remains above the water while the aft tentacles trail behind underwater. Two Kraken Society cultists stand watch on the decks fore and aft of King Hekaton, who lies on his back in the ship's hold, wrapped in chains. The 28- foot-tall giant appears frozen in time, his eyes open and staring blindly into the sky. Four chains bind him to the hull of the ship.
Mortimer Seaton says "Guys? is that the ship we were looking for?"
Zan-Kyri looks around, then finally notices the ship. "I mean, it looks like it. kinda, sorta, maybe. Want me to go check it out?"
Weasel watches Zan walk around on wobbly legs. "Um, no. I think you're good where you are."
G.O. Rakius IV shrugs and says, "Maybe. But someone will have to take this tub in closer if I'm to get a good clean shot at it… I wonder how well it sails when it's on fire."
The airship continues to drift closer to the strange craft.
Zan-Kyri sidles up to Weasel, "Really? I mean, it's not that far off, I can tooooootally make it there."
Weasel takes one finger, and pushes Zan to see if he's actually stable on his feet or not. 
Zan-Kyri rolls 11for a Dexterity check and gets 15.
G.O. Rakius IV adds, "For that matter… how well can it possibly sail in that configuration in the first place? I mean, sure, the pointy bit probably cuts through the water really well, but then all that water just rushes back in against those stupid legs, and…" before trailing off and nodding to himself.
Zan-Kyri Wobbles back a bit as Weasel pushes him, somehow managing to stay upright
Weasel says "So are we gonna start shooting at it, or should we go the diplomatic route. "
Zan-Kyri stares at the short person in front of him, "Like I said, I coooouuuuld go over and see what's going on…"
WaveBreak mimcs the monk's voice, "Coullld…" while impatiently clicking her toes against her perch.
G.O. Rakius IV shouts, "Drag coefficient!" before snapping back around to the present and saying, "Normally, I'd just burn it all down and question the ghosts later… but if you want to get a little closer- like… say on top of the kidnapped giant- I suppose we can do that."
Weasel sighs. "I can't see why not. Let us know what you find." 
G.O. Rakius IV whispers to Weasel, "When they catch him and carve his heart out to sate their dark god, that's when we make our move!"
Zan-Kyri stops what he was about to do, a dumb smile coming over his face. "Awesome! wonderful decision, I'll be back shortly." He then jumps off the side of the boat and flies over to the other ship
Weasel nods at G.O. in reply. 
Zan-Kyri uses Mingle with the Wind (60') on Zan-Kyri.
WaveBreak whistles appreciatively as she watches the monk do what she cannot.
Zan-Kyri rolls 20for a Perception skill check and gets 22.

Zan-Kyri rolls 17for a Stealth skill check and gets 21.
Cultist 1 says "You hear that?"
Cultist 2 says "Hear what?"
Cultist 1 says "Oh, never mind…"
Zan-Kyri finises up his investigation and drunken air-swims his way back to the airship.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Well, that was mildly ridiculous. Did you at least find something shiny?"
Zan-Kyri lands back on the airship. wobbling a bit at the feeling of semi-solid ground beneath his feet. "Ugh, I'll never get used to walking when I can do that."
Zan-Kyri stares at G.O. "Yes, I did, in fact." He turns to the rest of the group. "Our Giant is on that ship, seemingly not moving at all. There are only a couple of guards out as well."
Another cultist walks out on deck.
Cultist 3 says "Everything OK up her…Hey! There's a ship out there!"
Cultist 1 says "Huh?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Well, the good news is that I can light it on fire from here. The bad news is we might be picking a giant off the bottom of the ocean if I do…"
Cultist 3 points towards the airship. "You two suck at guard duty!"
Weasel says "A couple of guards is good news for us. Not too many that this will be a hassle, but enough that we get to attack things."
Weasel says "Maybe wait to light it on fire till we can free the giant…. also maybe don't light it on fire cause I like that ship."
Cultist 3 yells "RED ALERT. WE HAVE INCOMING!"
G.O. Rakius IV uses Spell Slot (Lvl 1).
G.O. Rakius IV uses Mage Armor (1) on G.O. Rakius IV.
Zan-Kyri Looks over at the ship he just flew/swam from. "Oh, they finally noticed? Huh, took them long enough…"
WaveBreak climbs down from the crow's nest while making the sound of fish tales slapping against the water out of annoyance or possibly warning.
G.O. Rakius IV mutters a few words to himself, shimmers for a moment, and says, "Say the word and I'll go over there. I can take one more with me. The rest of you will have to find your own way, though."
Zan-Kyri says "So, have we decided on a course of action?" He taps his foot on the boards of the deck and pulls out his now almost empty flast and takes a swig.
Several more cultists emerge from below and take up stations around the dormant giant.
WaveBreak mimcis a patchwork of voices, including GO's own voice in response, "Take… this… one?"
Weasel says "I'm no good over here. Take me where I can hit things! "
Zan-Kyri closes his eyes for a second, as if listening to something. "The winds won't carry me any longer. I shall have to stay behind."
G.O. Rakius IV looks over at the little bird person and asks, "Can you stay out of sight once we get there? I'll try to woo them with my vast intellect and godly charm, but might need you to make them bleed from big holes in their backs if it goes wrong."
Entering initiative. Only top creature in the CreatureBar may move.
Round 1 begins.
Dropping out of initiative. Free movement.
Entering initiative. Only top creature in the CreatureBar may move.
Round 1 begins.
WaveBreak shrugs and responds with the sound of a mouse squeaking.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Sorry Weasel, looks like the WWCHHSHHHWW beat you to it. Might I suggest riding invisible on Morty's back? He's a strong swimmer."
Zan-Kyri sits down and leans back against the rail of the ship, bringing out his now near-empty flask of ale, drinking it slowly, savoring it.

G.O. Rakius IV uses Dimension Door (4) on WaveBreak, G.O. Rakius IV.

Rakius the Fourth, and I've come to see what you're doing with my super-great grandfather, there. So, before my companions get here and start shooting again… anyone mind explaining why you're holding a giant captive on this rather akwardly designed ship?"
Round 2 begins.
Zan-Kyri completely emptys his flask, feeling a bit mad at the waitress for not letting him buy a barrel. "Whelp, no use just sitting here." he then gets up and backflips over the edge, this time splashing into the water and swimming off in the direction of the ship.

Session 44 - Fresh Meat

Last week the group gained entry to the Golden Goose, did a bit of gambling, turned invisible, took a swim, and decided to interrogate Lord Drylund.
Lord Drylund pulls a flask out of his desk and produces two glasses. "Drink?"
Pow Ming looks around the room and sniffs, suspicious.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Always. It's what keeps me youthful and spry. That and demon pacts."
Lord Drylund pours two drinks and hands one to G.O. "Wait, who would win in a fight; a dragon or a kraken?"
Mortimer Seaton says "I could use a drink, especially after that terrible luck I was having with the dice…"
G.O. Rakius IV takes the offered drink, but doesn't down it quite yet and replies, "Neither. Obviously. I would."
Zan-Kyri Yawns loudly, flopping down into one of the chairs at his table.
Mortimer Seaton says "Okay kind sir, can we roll again? White this time."
Lord Drylund says "You're more powerful than a dragon?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Sometimes! But I was thinking I'd just loot the dragon's hoard while it was busy fighting the kraken… I could probably take him, though. I'm a bit of a god." He makes a gesture with thumb and forefinger about an inch apart and adds, "Just a bit, though. For now."
> /roll 1d36
GM [DM] rolls a d36 for 29.
Gambler 3 spins the wheel dropping tha ball in. He watches it spin for a while, then it slows, settling on "29, WHITE!"
Weasel grumbles about not being able to take the gamblers bag, but decides to come back later, and try to loot some of the other gamblers first. 
Zan-Kyri says to the wet looking guy "I think you might want to lay off of the gambling there for a bit, friend."
Captain Krug Keelhaul approaches the guard at the entrance of the ship, slowly and loudly as his weight shifts the planks on the dock. "Dis' where all the fun is happenin'?" he says, grinning coily to the guard.
Guard 2 says "Lotsa fun."
Weasel rolls 14for a Sleight Of Hand skill check and gets 15.
Mortimer Seaton says "FINALLY! Sir, would you like to join me for a drink?"
Lord Drylund says "and you're looking for info about giants, huh?"
Mortimer Seaton says "Hey, youre awfully blue. Is everything okay?"
Lord Grenhold rolls 18for a Perception skill check and gets 20.
Mortimer Seaton says "I apologize, that pun was terrible. People have used it on me and I just never met another blue person. Where are you traveling to?"
Lord Grenhold says "Hey, whats that?! Someone just brushed up against me!"
Captain Krug Keelhaul says ""Good! Then 'dis where Krug be stoppin'." as he attempts to pass the guard."
Zan-Kyri says "Oh, here, and there, a bit of everywhere, really. I'm actually looking for some people."
G.O. Rakius IV twitches slightly at the corner of his left eye and says, "Yyeesss… you were about to tell me all about 'big players'."
Guard 2 says "HOLD! No weapons allowed on board"
G.O. Rakius IV rolls 17for a Perception skill check and gets 17.
Weasel walks around the back of the gambler, and tickles behind his knees
Weasel then scurries back so the gambler wouldn't find her. 
G.O. Rakius IV catches movement under the desk and says, "Wouldn't do that if I liked my boat staying afloat."
Pow Ming looks around, waves a hand in front of her eyes and looks around again
Mortimer Seaton says "Well, we have a group of people! Just a handful of adventurers that I'm sure would appreciate the company if you wanted to join us! I cant even remember what we were looking for again… it was a conch shell and then some old man and then hopefully ill have a date!"
Captain Krug Keelhaul blinks slowly, gears turning in his head. "Oh right. dis'." he says, slinging his gigantic 'weapon' off of his shoulder, slamming into the dock. "Have fun movin' it. I expect it still be here when I come back." He says with a guffah, leaving the large anchor behind.
Zan-Kyri says "Adventurer's huh…" "I've actually been waiting here for some adventuring folk."
Weasel crawls on her hands and knees across the room to another gambler, and reaches for his pack of gold
Zan-Kyri says "But enough about that for now, let's get that drink shall we?"
Weasel rolls 2for a Sleight Of Hand skill check and gets 3.
Pow Ming uses Level 2 Slot.
Ilyena wonders what in the Light of Sehanine is taking them so long. Part of her wanted to join them, but given her Uncle's own proclivity for gambling, she thought it best to wait on the dock…they said that sort of thing ran in families and she had no desire to end like her Uncle had. 
Pow Ming uses See Invisibility.
Mortimer Seaton grabs a glass of wine and holds it up to clink with his new comrade
Zan-Kyri clinks glasses and heartly chugs down the drink
Pow Ming says "Ah-ha! I see you!"
Weasel rolls 7for a Stealth skill check and gets 8.
Pow Ming uses Level 2 Slot.
Pow Ming uses Suggestion (Level 2, Concentration) on Weasel.
Pow Ming yells "DAMMIT. LOCK IT DOWN BOYS, WE HAVE A CHEATER!"
G.O. Rakius IV taps his foot and sets the glass down, waiting for the proprietor of this little floating bundle of kindling to take his finger away from that button.
The guards start running around closing and barring doors
Weasel yells, "Damn!" stands up, and shoves Morty's trident into him for him to grab. 
Zan-Kyri looks over at Pow, then back at Morty, "Um, do you have any idea? Because I am lost"
Captain Krug Keelhaul scratches his head in confusion. "Guh? Krug do somethin' wrong? I be leavin' my weapon here…" he says, standing awkwardly at the entryway, debating if he should pick up his weapon again.
Mortimer Seaton says "AHHHH, yeah. That may be our short friend who disappeared a bit ago. She promised she would bring me my trident…"
Mortimer Seaton says "And there it is!"
Weasel brandishes her axe and gets ready for a fight, but also runs as far away as possible from the gamblers. 
The gamblers all gather in the center of the room, looking around nervously
Zan-Kyri says, "Oh, fun" and takes another drink and chugs it all down in one gulp. "Well, you wanna do this?"
Mortimer Seaton sees his trident appear in his hand, confused, bewhildered and very glad that his grandfather's heirloom made it through the scuffle
Lord Drylund says "Hmm, sounds like a commotion down there. I better go check it out."
Mortimer Seaton says "Do what?"
Suddenly paintings start flying off the walls
Lord Drylund motions toward the door. "Please, after you"
Zan-Kyri says I think your "little friend" might be in a bit of trouble here"
Ilyena jumps to her feet when the door to the ship slams shut. Running over, she draws her sword. "WHAT DID YOU DO?" Her incredulous voice calls to the stranger who clearly must be at fault since he's closest to the door. 
and maniacal laughter can be heard careening around the room
Captain Nelvin Storn looks at Ilyena "I'm sorry miss, we're on lockdown"
Lord Drylund sighs and sits back down. "This feels like a setup"
Ilyena glowers. "My friends are in there. Let me pass."
Captain Krug Keelhaul turns around slowly to face Ilyena, dumbly pointing to himself, large finger on his chest. "Me? No. Krug was about to be enterin' when suddenly they started ta' scurry about like little cockroaches and slam door on Krug's face."
Zan-Kyri waits for his new friend to move before doing anything, wanting to wait and see what he does
Mortimer Seaton says "Oh, shes very good at taking care of herself… I usually like to sit back, avoid conflict, and watch the destruction"
G.O. Rakius IV shrugs and says, "It feels like you're trying to get out of telling me anything. I'm sure that noise is just the usual shenanigans. I'm a very unusual shenanigan, though, and I would like the information you possess. Then I'll leave."
Mortimer Seaton says "Sometimes I use this opportunity to pick up dates"
Zan-Kyri says "Oh, well, in that case, would you care for another drink? I would hate to see them go to waste."
Weasel waits patiently for someone else to make the first move. She was more than willing to sit back and wait out her invisiblity spell. 
Mortimer Seaton says "Bottoms up!"
Lord Drylund says "OK, fine. I'm guessing you're looking for one giant in particular? A big one, with a crown?"
Pow Ming approaches weasel
Zan-Kyri grabs another drink, but this time waits a little, drinking only a little bit
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Good start," and leans against the door with his arms crossed tapping the fingers of his right hand on his left elbow.
Weasel inches closer to the window
Pow Ming yells "SHES'S ESCAPING OUT THE WINDOW!"
Ilyena frowns at the hulking figure. "Very well. Help me get past him." She nods her head at the guard on the door. 
Mortimer Seaton sips at the wine like one classy son of a… water elemental and sailor after a drunken night on the seven seas?
Weasel jumps out the window quickly and runs down the deck 
WaveBreak continues walking down the docks. Though her head cocks to the left and right, as if looking at everything, she does not appear to react when a nearby woman takes off toward a vessel, shouting at its guard.
Zan-Kyri rolls 15for a Reflex save and gets 24.
More crewmen begin pouring out from belowdecks.
Pow Ming runs over and looks out the window where Weasel just escaped
Weasel finds a stair case
Pow Ming climbs her old bones out the window
Weasel goes down them
Captain Krug Keelhaul looks to the door, pauses, and then looks back to Ilyena. "Depends. Ya' want Krug ta' smash? Or Krug ta' make small man open door other ways…"
Pow Ming heads down the stairs to the … rowing area
Ilyena looks him up and down. "No offense, friend, but are you good at other ways?" She looks to the Captain. "Are you going to let us in or not?"
Weasel runs down the rowing area, but hears more footsteps coming from the opposite direction, so she runs back the other way. 
Captain Nelvin Storn says "um, no?"
Weasel and back up the stairs
Captain Nelvin Storn glances warily at Krug
Lord Drylund says "Well I've got these friends, who might know where he is."
Lord Drylund says "Not friends, per se, you know, more like acquaintances."
Ilyena uses Level 2 on Ilyena.
Captain Krug Keelhaul smiles a toothy grin before approaching the door, using his Anchor to knock on it, loudly. "Oh little man… You'd best be listenin' ta' Captain Krug and be lettin' me and my little friend in…" He ends, making one last, harder, knock with his makeshift weapon.
Ilyena uses Command (L1)(L2)(L3) (60') on Captain Nelvin Storn.
Pow Ming says to the crewmen "did you see anyone come down here?"
Crewmate 5 says "nope"
G.O. Rakius IV arches one eyebrow and says, "And these 'acquaintances'. Are they going to give me that information, or am I going to have to do bad things to their families to get it?"
Pow Ming heads back up the stairs
WaveBreak pauses and quietly settles into a squat at the edge of the dock. If anyone cared to glance at her, she might resemble a bird waiting to take flight.
Lord Drylund says "well, you know, I guess if you found them, you'd find King Hekaton"
Ilyena looks the guardsman in his eyes, and speaks in a voice of Command, "Halt." She disliked using this power, so did not do it often. 
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Oh, good. I'd like to meet great-great-great-great grandpa. So, where are these friends of yours, and refer to part B of question A: do I have to hurt their families?"
Weasel rolls 9for a Strength Save skill check and gets 11.
Weasel Jumps up and attempts to open the window from the outside, but only gets it open enough to squeeze a toe through. 
Weasel She continues to pry at it, hopeing to get inside 
Ilyena acts immediately upon seeing the slightly glazed look come into the guardsman's eyes. It would not last long and he would still be aware, but at least it would buy them some time. She hopped the railing and immediately tried the door. "Come on!" She yelled back at her new companion. 
Pow Ming wounds the corner and sees Weasel trying to pry open a window
Captain Krug Keelhaul glances around with a furrowed brow. "Huh? Krug?" he says, shrugging and following Ilyena hesitantly.
Pow Ming yells "DUCK BOYS! "
Pow Ming uses Level 1 Slot.
Weasel looks around for other entrences and sees Pow Ming coming for her. "Ilyena! Stall her!"
Pow Ming holds as the Captain doesn't duck
Pow Ming says "Captain, get down. I've got a bead on a cheater"
Weasel jumps down and runs back around the corner
Weasel finds a door.
Weasel says "Gah! Why is this boat so hard to break into?!"
Weasel rolls 6for a Reflex save and gets 9.
Pow Ming says "aaaand she's gone. What's wrong with you?"
Weasel runs to the other side and finds another window to try to get through
Captain Krug Keelhaul peers over toward the voice and greets it with a toothy smile. "Hulloh!" he states gleefully, stopping to tower over the captain.
Weasel jumps through the window and closes it softly behind her. 
Pow Ming says "Back off please, we are chasing down a cheater!"
Zan-Kyri shouts, "And aparently not doing it too well!"
Crewmate 8 looks toward the sound of an opening window "What was that?"
Ilyena growls in frustration when the door doesn't budge. "I wonder if he has a key…" She takes the last few seconds to search him for a key while everyone else nearby is distracted. 
Weasel runs up the stairs, not wanting to head back out to find Pow Ming waiting for her. 
Lord Drylund says "I really shouldn't be telling you this. Promise you won't say it was me?"
Zan-Kyri rolls 8for a Athletics skill check and gets 10.
Ilyena growls with frustration and kicks the door when it doesn't budge, letting out a string of epthitets that most sailors would probably consider pretty mild, but were very out of character for her. She turns at the sound of another voice, ready for the confrontation to come when the guard regains autonomy. 
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Sure, I'll blame the octopus. Who am I gonna tell? No one would believe me I saved the world because some riverboat mogul told me to. I'll just say I saw it in the future or something. Like I always do."
Captain Krug Keelhaul notices Ilyena kicking at the door and chuckles. "Really? Move aside tiny woman." he states, putting a second hand on his Anchor, looking to his left and right before slamming it into the door, coughing to attempt to hide the noise, in vain.
Weasel runs down the hallway recognizing the door to the room G.O went into earlier with the captain. She continues to run and finds another staircase going down.
Weasel Not knowing what sat the bottom of the stair well she tip toes back down the stairs. 
Lord Drylund says "OK, well theres this cult. You know those cults are always starting trouble"
G.O. Rakius IV nods his head and says, "Yeah, especially the ones devoted to me."
Weasel walks up behind morty and whispers in his ear. "SOS. Morty. I'm invisible and don't know what to do next!"
Captain Krug Keelhaul rolls 16for a Strength check and gets 20.
Lord Drylund says "and they, um, well not to mince words, killed the storm giant queen."
G.O. Rakius IV acts like he's heard this before, because he has, from his great-great-great grandma. "Yep. Small people. Lots of them," he says looking mildly annoyed, "Get to the part that matters. Who/what/where/why are they?"
WaveBreak impatiently clacks her talons against the boards of the dock.
Lord Drylund says "Oh. Well they've got him on a boat out in the Trackless Sea, near the Purple Rocks."
Lord Drylund says "It's called the Morko….."
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Aha! The one from Orko?"
Lord Drylund 's eyes widen in terror.
Mortimer Seaton whirls around, not sure of who just spoke to him. Maybe his conscience? No! Wait! It must be Weasel, she is the only one who is invisible after all… unless shes not… but thats a panic attack for another day. He whispers, just under his breath so no one can hear, "Hi! You should start by getting all of our coins back, then grab the steering wheel and take us far away, and then go on a date with me, and then we let the sorry suckers go…"
Lord Drylund 's head explodes, sending bits of blood and brain matter spattering G.O. and the rest of the room.
Zan-Kyri looks at Morty and says, "Sooo, do you talk to yourself a lot, or?"
Weasel whispers to Morty, "Here's what I was thinking. We want information, right? What if we held them hostage?" 
The octopus climbs from Drylund's now headless shoulders and slithers back into his tank. You could swear the look on his face is saying "Not again…"
G.O. Rakius IV blinks, looks around, and says, "Well. I do believe my will has become manifest. Truly godhood has been achieved." He looks at the octopus and says, "So, just you and me now, slimy. I'm guessing you're some sort of interdimensional horror, maybe related to the Illithid? Or are you a real octopus and I'm really just that good?"
Ilyena skates past the new guy and into the room as soon as the door shatters, intent on getting as far away from this guard as possible before he comes to. 
The octopus looks at G.O.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Sure. Play it that way. Fine. This won't hurt…" and begins muttering to himself…
Zan-Kyri Looks over at the now-broken door, startled by it suddenly exploding, "What in the…?" he exclaims
G.O. Rakius IV uses Spell Slot (Lvl 2).
Weasel sees Ilyena and runs over to her "Oh good, you're here. We're thinking of starting a hostage situation. Quick, get your new friend in here and close the door so we can bar it again."
G.O. Rakius IV uses Detect Thoughts (2) on G.O. Rakius IV.
Mortimer Seaton ignores Zan-Kyri for a moment and continues whispering to Weasel, "Wait, what about the date? But I guess hostage doesnt sound too terrible? We may get ourselves in trouble though…"
Mortimer Seaton says "Oh! Me! No, just my imaginary friends. I dont have many real ones. Its the daddy issues, and mommy issues. Scares them all away…""
G.O. Rakius IV focuses as his spell comes to completion and says, "Ok, cephalopod… let's see what you know…"
Captain Krug Keelhaul enters the room following Ilyena menacingly, exclaiming to the general population of the room. "Oi ya' lot. I'm loo-" he stops as his head hits the low hanging frame of the door, followed by a string of curses as he tries to catch himself. "The… Ones." He pauses, coming to. "The one's sendin' all the squiddies out into the ocean."
Ilyena comes to a very quick stop inside the door. "Hello." She looks past him at Mortimer. "What is going on?" She hears Weasel's voice but doesn't look in her direction, mostly because she couldn't see her anyway. "Get in here!" She shouts back through the doorway. 
Ilyena comes to a very quick stop inside the door. "Hello." She looks past him at Mortimer. "What is going on?" She hears Weasel's voice but doesn't look in her direction, mostly because she couldn't see her anyway. Backing up, she pushes against the door, closing it as much as possible. "We need a bar!"
Zan-Kyri looks at the beautiful elven woman who just entered, "Um, I don't have a bar, but would some rope do?"
WaveBreak slips aboard the ship, following the others as if she was with them all along.
Weasel runs up to the gambler farthest from the door and pokes her axe into his back threateningly. "Everyone stop where you are, or the gambler gets it!"
Pow Ming peeks in the door after Krug and backs away whispering "I only deal with cheaters…"
G.O. Rakius IV mutters, sensing nothing other than the general loss of a favored two-legs and says, "Damn. Well. This ended well," and heads downstairs.
Ilyena holds her hand out while she pushes. "Yes, yes! Rope will do, as long as we can secure the door." She looks up at the giant man next to her. "You should be holding the door, friend."
"Everyone stop where you are, or the gambler gets it!"
G.O. Rakius IV pauses, though, turns, and heads over to the headless corpse. "Well, since I'm here," he says… and begins rifling through its pockets.
Weasel yells "MORTY! COVER ME! "
Mortimer Seaton says "YOURE COVERED! What am I covering? I dont have an umbrella…"
Zan-Kyri says "Well, if you need some rope, then here you go" he stands up and gives the elven woman some of his rope.
Captain Krug Keelhaul shakes his head, attempting to shake away the dizziness. Just before reaching for the door, he freezes as hears the voice ring out.
Zan-Kyri rolls 9for a Fortitude save and gets 16.
Ilyena loops the rope around the metal protuberances on either side of the door that the bar would normally rest in. 
Zan-Kyri freezes and looks around for the source of the voice, still holding out the rope
WaveBreak inquistively cocks her head to one side and subconciously emits the sound of cold water hissing on a hot pan.
Gambler 7 says "MMMMPPHHHH"
Weasel says "Point your weapon at someone! Back me up! We want information! If you give us the information we'll let everyone go peacefully… but we get the boat."
"Point your weapon at someone! Back me up! We want information! If you give us the information we'll let everyone go peacefully… but we get the boat."
G.O. Rakius IV carefully slips a rapier with an ornate octopus-shaped hilt off the dead man's belt, turns it over in his hand and slips it behind his belt before plucking a small chest of gold and a pouch of gemstones off the body and calling it a day. "Well, at least something good came of this nonsense," he says before strolling out of the room and back downstairs.
Gambler 7 tries to be heroic and kicks backward trying to dislodge his unseen attacker.
Gambler 7 misses Weasel with Kick. 
Captain Krug Keelhaul says "Is 'dis a mutiny? Krug likes a good ol' mutiny." He draws his anchor, using that little amount of information as a reason to do so.
Mortimer Seaton follows the sound of Weasel's voice, pointing his trident menacinly at the crowd of gamblers
Zan-Kyri looks at the man who just walked down the stairs, "Oh, hellow there, glad you could join us."
G.O. Rakius IV saunters downstairs and says, "What's all this shouting and such? Who in the nine hells are all you people? Where's my griffon?!" before adding, "Oh, right, I left the boys back in the ship… Fine, what's with the rest of this?"
Weasel yells "THIS IS A HOSTAGE SITUATION! GIVE US WHAT WE WANT! "
Mortimer Seaton says "Does this mean it was a yes to the date?"
"THIS IS A HOSTAGE SITUATION! GIVE US WHAT WE WANT! "
Weasel yells "THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO TALK ABOUT A DATE! "
"THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO TALK ABOUT A DATE! "
Mortimer Seaton says "It is ALWAYS time to talk about a date!"
WaveBreak blinks and quietly edges along the wall.
Zan-Kyri stands up and turns around, facing Morty and whispers to him "What's going on?"
Gambler 7 says "Don't let it hurt me!"
Mortimer Seaton says "Well she wont if you just cooperate…"
Weasel says "G.O! We've decided to hold these passengers hostage until they give us the information we need!"
"G.O! We've decided to hold these passengers hostage until they give us the information we need!" *
Mortimer Seaton says "Where is GO anyway?"
Guard 2 stops they bird-man wandering around on deck "Hey, you shouldn't be here!" 
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Is that Weasel?" looking around for where the sound came from, "I already got what we need. We're done here. Unless you want to burn this place down and take all the money, anyway. SOME of us (Yes, Varis, you too) actually know how to behave like rational adults!"
Weasel says "Well can I at least have the boat? "
"Well can I at least have the boat? "
Weasel says "what I'm hearing is that as long as you're around, I don't need to behave like a rational adult."
G.O. Rakius IV says, "It's just a riverboat. We need a real ship, and we happen to HAVE one that flies, remember?"
"what I'm hearing is that as long as you're around, I don't need to behave like a rational adult."
G.O. Rakius IV shrugs and says, "I'm having a lucid day."
Weasel says "But I didn't even get to push anyone overboard! "
Captain Krug Keelhaul laughs lowly, lightly elbowing Ilyena. "Who's 'dis guy? Bit of a killjoy huh." he says, eyeing G.O.
WaveBreak cocks her head at the guard, then speaks in the voice of the room's newest entrant, "Ship… that flies?"
"But I didn't even get to push anyone overboard! "
Gambler 7 struggles a bit
Zan-Kyri says "Why don't we take that one you got there with us, then you can push him overboard? How does that sound?"
G.O. Rakius IV eyes the big smelly thing and says, "I killed a woman named Joy once. She was a… well, let's not get into that. Suffice to say, I spread Joy throughout the city."
Gambler 7 whimpers
Captain Krug Keelhaul says "looks surprised, his jaw falling a bit. "Ya' spread the corpse of a woman named Joy 'round a city?… Damn.""
G.O. Rakius IV says, "No, just bits of her gray matter. I'm not a monster. Unlike some of you…"
Weasel sighs, and becomes visible again. "I'll just take his bag of money. No need to push him overboard if I can't keep the boat."
Zan-Kyri shrugs, "You do you."
Gambler 7 says "I only have two coins left"
Weasel says "Then I guess I'll take everyones bag of coins. "
Weasel says "Come on. Hand them over, and I wont push you over the side or steal your boat. "
Weasel says "Or kill you "
Captain Nelvin Storn says "Do as she says. We're insured"
The gamplers throw their purses into the center of the room
Zan-Kyri says to the captain, "You're insured? By whom? Are you sure you're in good hands?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Well, you WERE… but I'm pretty sure your policy holder is going to be pretty hard to reach for a statement…" before striding out the door.
Captain Nelvin Storn looks confused
Weasel Picks up the bags of gold, and backs towards the door, not lowering her axe. 
WaveBreak quietly follows the man that had mentioned the ship. When she is back on the deck, she asks again in his voice, "Ship… that flies?"
Weasel says "Anyone not with these suckers is welcome to come with us! "
Gambler 4 says "OOh, I want to come!"
Weasel pokes the gambler with her axe. "Not you. You're one of the suckers!"
Crewmate 1 says "Your ship sounds better, can I transfer?"
Gambler 4 looks deflated
Weasel says "No! No losers allowed! "
G.O. Rakius IV plucks his rapier out of the barrel by the door on his way out, looks at it, and tosses it over his shoulder in favor of the new one. "Oh, hi there little bird," he says fitting his scabbard back on his belt and sliding the new weapon in place, "Good job, almost sounds like me. Not quite the same timbre, but passable. Yes, I have an airship. I sometimes let other people on it, like the gnome and the soggy lad and that elf girl."
Captain Nelvin Storn gets a dawning look of panic "Lord Drylund!" and runs up the stairs
Captain Krug Keelhaul nods. "Count Krug in." he states, giving a thumbs up to seamingly the entire room.
Zan-Kyri mutters to himself, "Are these really them? Well, I guess they'll do." and walks off of the ship after the little one, but not before taking one last glass of wine.
Weasel says "Come on Morty! Believe it or not, your not one of the losers I'm leaving on the ship!"
WaveBreak keeps pace with the man, who she thinks is called GO. "Crew for hire?" she barks in the gruff voice of any merchant captain that skulks the docks in a merchant port, "Skilled crew needed?"
Mortimer Seaton says "Oh! I was waiting to hear about that date… but okay."
Ilyena shrugs as everyone saunters past her,the ropes she'd worked so hard at seeming to fall away instantly. She grabs them up and follows. She was definitely not going to get separated again. 
Zan-Kyri turns around and faces the elven woman, "Um, if you don't mind, could I have that rope back?"
Weasel says "Alright, roll call! Who did we pick up?"
G.O. Rakius IV strolls down the pier, conversing idly with the bird creature, "Skilled at what? Following me around? I could definitely use a minion." He shouts behind him, "Hey, everyone, I have a new minion!"
Captain Krug Keelhaul saunters out of the ship, shoulders shrunk, following the group in tow. "Krug'll find them giant squiddie makers… Some day." he mutters to himself.
Ilyena tosses them to him. They were apparently completely useless ropes, anyway. 
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Do try to keep up, little bird. It's only a matter of time before they find out their boss's head exploded all over the room, and I'd rather not make a bunch of new widows today…"
WaveBreak explains her qualificiations in a clammer of noise – steel ringing out against steel, sails cracking, the calls of men to weigh anchor and bind sails.
G.O. Rakius IV nods along with the clatter of noises behind him and says, "Oh, yes. You'll do just fine."
Weasel sees morty hanging out with someone new and feels a pang of jealousy. "Come on morty! You can bring your friend with you, but don't dilly dally!" 
Zan-Kyri turns to Morty, "Shall we?"
Zan-Kyri says "I'd assume you wouldn't want to keep a lady waiting would you?"
Mortimer Seaton shuffles his feet, still annoyed about the lack of answer to his date question…
Zan-Kyri says "Hey, so, you do realise that those guys are probably going to come after us right?"
Zan-Kyri says "Are we going to do anything about that orrr….?"
WaveBreak repeats in the ship Captain's voice, "We're insured…"
Weasel says "People don't really come after us… I think it's because we're so scary."
Zan-Kyri shrugs "Well, if you're sure, then lead on, to this "air ship" of yours"
After a short boat-taxi ride and a bit of walking you arrive back in Red Larch where you parked your airship.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "I already did enough damage. They're going to have a good time trying to get that insurance payout with the owner's brains scattered around the room…"
As the sun sinks below the horizon, the sounds of racous laughter emerge from the tavern.
GM [DM] heals The cake to maximum.
Weasel grumbles, "if we had stollen the ship we wouldn't have had to take a taxi ride." 
Zan-Kyri looks about, slightly nervious, "Ugh, a city, never liked cities, too crowded, too full of people. Why couldn't you guys have parked your ship in a less populated area?"
Weasel gingles the pouches of gold that she got on the ship. "Drinks on me?"
Zan-Kyri says "Don't you mean on those gamblers?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Riverboat. Not ship. And honestly, those things go pretty slow. It's to keep everyone onboard long enough to steal all their money." He heads off down the street and says, "Before his head exploded in awe of my godly radiance, Lord Dinglehopper said there's a ship in the Trackless Sea near the Purple Rocks that probably has my great-great-great-great grandpa on it. Also, some cultists. I think the good times are starting up again. It's been SO long since Varis and I got to blow something up."
Weasel says "Same thing. "
Captain Krug Keelhaul seems to absently take his surroundings in until a certain word catches his ears. "Did ya' say cultists? Are they of the squiddie kind?"
Weasel says "We can sleep when we're dead… or drunk. We seemed to have picked up a few stragglers. I think I at least owe them a drink for getting them involved in my hostage situation. "
Zan-Kyri says "Eh, I don't mind, I mean, it was rather fun actually."
The cake stumbles drunkenly into the tavern
G.O. Rakius IV shrugs and says, "They're the doomsday kind. I don't know what they look like. Probably just guys who don't bathe much and thing chanting a few phrases in Abyssal makes them mysterious."
The entire crowd in the tavern yells "Cake!"
Zan-Kyri says "But, there shall never be a day, or night, where I would refuse a drink. Especially if I'm not paying for it."
Weasel says "would have been more fun if we'd be allowed to keep the boat. But I guess I'll jus have to be happy with being the captain of an air ship."
The cake waves to the crowd
Weasel says "To the Tavern! "
Mortimer Seaton follows the individuals yelling about cake
Captain Krug Keelhaul shakes his head. "No no, not them. Krug didn't mean they are squiddies. They summon' squiddies." He says pausing, scratching his head. "What they called…I think Krug hear them called… A Crack in the sea?" He states hesitantly, scrunching his face in thought.
The cake says "hic"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "A trench? How in the Demonweb Pits do you summon a trench?"
Captain Krug Keelhaul opens his mouth to speak again, but shakes his head instead. "Krug no explainin' right… Krug'll figure it out eventually."
G.O. Rakius IV pauses outside the door to the tavern and says, 'Oh, right. Krakens. Yeah, sure. I mean, they're in the sea. On a ship. Why not? Krakens aren't so great, though. I have griffons. Now THOSE guys are the best. Real lovable with their beady little eyes and all those big feathers…"
Ghileeda approaches the group 'What can I get ya? Wait, weren't there only four of you last time?"
Captain Krug Keelhaul snaps his large sausage fingers. "Kraken! 'Dat's it!"
Zan-Kyri turns to the waitress. "I'd like your strongest drink, whatever it is."
WaveBreak soundlessly follows the others in her group toward the tavern.
Mortimer Seaton winks at the waitress
The cake falls out of its chair, candles down, and extinguishes, snoring slightly.
Zan-Kyri whispers to Morty, "5 gold says you won't get with this one."
G.O. Rakius IV shugs and pushes his way into the tavern. "Krakens taste good on toast," he says, "With a little lemon juice. Cultists, on the other hand, taste like sour pudding and don't pair well with wine. Best to just light them all on fire and be done with it."
Mortimer Seaton says, "You are on," and turns to the waitress. "Excuse me, ma'am! Are you free this friday night to accompany me to dinner? I would love to hear more about your day and see that beautiful smile of yours."
Ghileeda says "Ain't never free kiddo. Gonna cost ya."
Ghileeda heads back towards the bar
Mortimer Seaton says "I am happy to pay for your meal!"
Zan-Kyri chuckles to himself "easiest 5 gold of my life."
Ghileeda laughs
WaveBreak picks her way through the crowded tavern and takes a seat near GO.
Captain Krug Keelhaul follows G.O, intrigued by their conversation. "On toast? Why did Krug not think of that?!." He exclaims, smaking himself in the forehead. "Maybe the smell of roasted squi-" He stops himself, gleefully using the word he now remembers, "-Kraken… will ward 'da rest off so Krug can become Shark of the sea again!"
Weasel yells "A ROUND OF DRINKS ON ME! "
G.O. Rakius IV shouts, "BARKEEP! Ale all around, and you better have found that decanter of baby fat!" He pointedly does not offer money for these things, and the gleam in his eye says 'just do it'.
Ghileeda brings over several pitchers of ale.
Zan-Kyri says "That it? Do you have any barrels? or a large keg?"
Ghileeda says "Yes, that's what we fill the pitchers with. Trust me kiddo, I know how to keep it flowing…"
Zan-Kyri says "Could I just have the barrel? It's easier for me that way."
G.O. Rakius IV says, "that's what she said!" nudging Morty just a little bit.
Ghileeda says "Nah, we found that gets thing rowdy too fast."
WaveBreak stares at her mug and twitters like a perturbed songbird before awakardly taking a drink.
Ghileeda hands G.O. a piece of fat sliced off a veal steak.
Zan-Kyri walks up to the waitress and whispers "I said, I. Would. Like. The. Barrel. We have money, you have the drink, I want the drink, I can hold my liquor, give me the barrel."
Mortimer Seaton has a single tear fall down his cheek and watches it hit the bar with a little splat
Ghileeda stares the blue guy back in the eye "No"
G.O. Rakius IV sniffs the proferred lump, nods and says, "Close enough!" before tossing it across the room. The sliver of fat disappears in mid-air with a loud slurping sound.
Captain Krug Keelhaul falls down into a seat at a table in the corner, laying his anchor down next to him, throwing his feet up onto the table and relaxing.
Ghileeda turns away and heads back to the bar
Weasel see's Morty's tear, and passes him an extra pitcher of beer. "It'll happen for you eventually, bud. Never stop asking." 
Mortimer Seaton looks at Weasel through his eyelashes and drinks the beer without saying another word.
Captain Krug Keelhaul opens one eye to peer at Zan-Kyri. "Krug not 'bout to dance with Barkeeps rules. Besides, Krug not one 'ta drink." He explains, closing his eye again.
Zan-Kyri turns and heads back to where he was seated, and sits down with a sigh "Ugh, I guess this will have to do for now." he says and takes one of the pitchers of ale and starts downing it.
G.O. Rakius IV drinks his ale and says to the little black bird creature, "See what I have to deal with? A conqueror of time and space, and I'm stuck with the most bizarre comrades. Ah well. At least you seem viable. So what do I call you, anyway? And don't say Varis. That one's already taken."
WaveBreak takes in all that is happening around her, then looks at GO and speaks in Krug's voice, "Krak..en… Cultists… Squiddies?"
Weasel takes a drink of beer and looks at the new people. "I think we all need to know a little bit about these knew folk before we show them to our ship. Why don't we start with you." she points to Zan-Kyri.
WaveBreak responds to GO's request for her name by mimicking the sound of a wave breaking against the side of a ship.
Captain Krug Keelhaul suddenly lurches upwards from his relaxation at the sound of his own voice. "Wot, who said 'dat? Is Krug goin' mad?"
Zan-Kyri looks at Weasel, already almost done with the pitcher. He puts it down, and wipes his mouth. "Me? Oh, there's a lot I could tell, where would you like me to start?"
Weasel says "A name would be great. "
Weasel says "and then your entire life story. "
Ghileeda brings over two more pitshers, setting them down on the table opposite Zan-Kyri, then proceeds back to the bar.
G.O. Rakius IV nods his head slowly between drinks, "Ahhhh… so… WWCRSHHHHWW? I… haven't heard that one before, and I speak many terrible languages."
Zan-Kyri smiles as the pitchers are placed before him, finishing off the one he had, then taking another one. "My name? Oh, I haven't said this in a while, but my name is Zan-Kyri, but you may call me Zan, if it pleases you."
Zan-Kyri rolls 18for a Constitution check and gets 19.
Weasel says "Well Zan, Tell me where you grew up, what your parents were like, what your hopes and dreams are, what lead you to the life you live now. I wanna know everything. "
WaveBreak opens her beak to correct GO on the pronounciation of her name before letting it click shut again. After a brief moment of quiet, she speaks using the old man's voice, "Varis?"
Zan-Kyri chugs more of the second pitcher, before slamming it down on the table. "Oh, where to begin…, well I guess I grew up in the.. nooo, eh, too many places, but I guess you would refer to them as the "wilds". I've been traveling for a while now. so many homes."
Zan-Kyri leans back in his chair, thinking, "As for my parents, well, let's just say, we don't exactly see a lot of each other anymore, not after I left. not that we got along in the first place…"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Long story. He's over there," gesturing somewhere off his right shoulder, "You won't see him often. If you do, it's probably not going to go well. Better than this cultist business, maybe… but don't worry. I'm going to save the world again, and everything will be fine for at least 45% of the party."
Zan-Kyri takes the pitcher he put down, and finishes that one off, then he goes for the next one."
WaveBreak nods along with GO's words, then repeats in his own voice, "Cultist business?"
Weasel says "raises an eyebrow at Zan. "You can really hold your liqor."
Zan-Kyri raises one of his eyebrows "What, this small amount? I can drink way more if I want to. It's one of those things you learn while wandering around. Alcohol becomes one of your best friends."
G.O. Rakius IV grins and says, "You're getting better at that. Good. Might be useful sometime to make people think there are two of me…" Pausing for a moment to consider the potential for two simultaneous G.O.s he shudders a bit and adds, "Oh, right, no one explained this stuff… well, there are giants running amok. I'm sure you've seen some. They're kind of everywhere. Apparently, some cultists killed my great-great-great-great grandmother, the storm giant queen, and have quadruple-great grandpa on their ship. I'm guessing it's just some power play to take over the world. Either way, I'm going to kill them. I suppose the rest of you can help with that."
Zan-Kyri looks over at G.O. "You make it sound as if you've come from a different time, what are you, some kind of Timelord?" he scoffs as he says the last part and goes back to his drinking.
WaveBreak responds with the sounds of steel ringing out against steel, bones breaking, and blood gurgled gasps before grabbing her mug and more confidently taking a gulp of the ale.
G.O. Rakius IV laughs at the little bird and says, "Oh, yes. You'll do fine," before turning over his shoulder and saying, "I don't know what that is. I'm a quarter-giant god from the future."

Session 43 - Long walk off a short pier

Last week you played Truth or Dare, and found a gambling den on a boat
Yup, that about covers it…
G.O. Rakius IV says, "So, who wants to wager we wind up blowing large holes in this boat before the end of the day?"
Mortimer Seaton says "Already starting with the gambling, huh?"
Mortimer Seaton says "Ill put money on it."
Guard 2 eyes the suspicious looking group on the dock.
G.O. Rakius IV scoffs, "Money? Who said anything about money, dear boy? I was thinking years-of-lifespan as the more appropriate currency."
Mortimer Seaton says "Should I go ahead and introduce myself? Weasel, why dont you go first"
Mortimer Seaton says "Ah, well, you see…. I havent even found love yet. Im not sure I want to wish away this life I havent experienced"
Weasel tosses her axe back and forth between her hands, and looks at the rest of the group. "I mean, I can go first, but… do you really want that?"
G.O. Rakius IV shakes his head and says, "We'd just trade a few off the end of life, not cut you down in the middle of it! What do I look like? Some necromancer?" He eyes the guard at the other end of the dock and says, "Oh, fine. We'll just have to make due with base currency. But as I don't have any because someone keeps taking all the good treasure and leaving me frozen dwarf heads… I'll have to borrow some from that man up there."
Weasel follows close behind G.O, holding tightly onto her axe
Mortimer Seaton says "Well, we could gamble for it"
G.O. Rakius IV calls out, "I say, good sir! Is this the famed riverboat… uhh… Goose-somethingorother? I hear it's quite the place to be on a lonely night, and as you can see by my three companions, I am quite lonely."
Guard 2 looks Mortimer up and down. "Lonely is down the street. Look for the res lights."
Guard 2 says "But yes, this is the Golden Goose"
Mortimer Seaton says "May we come aboard?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Rather brown and woody for a goose of gold, don't you think? Besides, I'm allergic to red light."
Guard 2 says "No weapons allowed on board"
Weasel looks at her axe then at her group, then at the guard, then back at her axe and pouts
Guard 2 says "Dem's da rules"
Mortimer Seaton says "Can we check them below decks? This trident is a family heirloom. I mearly just carry it because it was my grandfather's"
Guard 2 says "I can check them right here, if you like"
Weasel says "And how do we get them back? "
Guard 2 holds out one hand open, with a weapons check claim ticket in the other
G.O. Rakius IV eyes the guard for a moment and asks, "What weapons? I don't see any weapons. I see a few tools, and the short one is obviously craddling her poor, magically transmuted brother who she can't put down for fear of losing him… but I don't see any weapons. Do you?"
Guard 2 says "yes"
Guard 2 says "believe me, we've heard it all. Well almost all. The transmuted brother was a new, if unconvincing one…"
G.O. Rakius IV sighs and says, "Well, fine, maybe it was actually her sister. I don't know. But trust me, we're not out to do anyone harm. We just like to be prepared. Learned that one in the Boy Wizard Scouts, I did."
Weasel says "and we can have it back as soon as we leave?"
Guard 2 says "Ah, I see. Well this isn't really the place for Boy Wizard Scouts, now is it?"
Weasel says "What about boy wizard scouts gone rogue? "
Guard 2 looks at Weasel "Yes, just hand me the claim ticket and I return your weapons"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Can't say any place is anymore… not after that accident in the jungles of Chult jamboree with the fire lizards…"
Mortimer Seaton begrudgingly hands over his trident over in exchange for a ticket
Weasel hands over her axe, but holds on really tight when they try to take it away. 
Guard 2 takes the trident, places a tag on it, and hands half of the tag to Mortimer.
Guard 2 waits patiently for Weasel to release the axe "Happens a lot…"
Mortimer Seaton says "Thank you sir. Please keep good care of it"
Weasel sighs and let's go, begrudgingly taking the ticket. 
Guard 2 looks to G.O. "And you, sir?"
Weasel watches very carefully to see where they put the weapons, making a mental note to find it later. 
G.O. Rakius IV watches the other two with some dismay and unhooks the sheathed rapier at his hip. "I'm going to be very upset if you lose this. It's the only thing I have to remind me of those poor children."
Guard 2 says "We haven't lost a weapon yet sir"
Mortimer Seaton says "Now, wheres the game room1?"
Mortimer Seaton rolls 10for a Perception skill check and gets 16.
G.O. Rakius IV rolls 7for a Perception skill check and gets 7.
Weasel rolls 4for a Perception skill check and gets 5.
Mortimer Seaton says "Hey! Did I see you cross your fingers behind your back!? I swear, if you lose my trident, I will be absolutely enranged. You lying cheater… why I otta…."
Ilyena says, "I'll just stay out here and keep an eye on things. I'm not really into gambling," and goes to take a seat on the pier.
Captain Nelvin Storn says "Right this way" and points to the nearest door
Mortimer Seaton stands there fuming, waiting for someone to hold him back before he so much as hits the guy
G.O. Rakius IV pointedly does not hold Morty back.
Weasel notices nothing, and follows the guard onto the boat, quite intrigued 
Mortimer Seaton huffs, with steam almost visibly coming from his ears, and tries to cool his temper before getting himself or his friends killed
G.O. Rakius IV whispers, "Say the word, lad. Big holes."
Captain Nelvin Storn opens the door to the casino and says heartily "Enjoy yourselves!"
Mortimer Seaton whispers to G.O. "If they lose my trident, I will kill them"
Captain Nelvin Storn begins to look concerend as no one comes aboard "Is there a problem?"
Mortimer Seaton calms himself and climbs aboard the ship
Captain Nelvin Storn smiles again
G.O. Rakius IV grins maniacally and says, "I'll help. Those boy wizards didn't die a horrible death in a lizard's cookpot to have the rapier I forged from their belt buckles fall into pirate hands!"
Weasel whispers "careful there, Morty. We get on. We find out what we want, and we get off. With your trident. "
This large cabin has been transformed into a gambling hall, the centerpiece of which is a gold-plated wooden sculpture of a goose that rests on a table in the aft end. Glasses of fine wine, free for the taking, are arrayed around it. An unflattering portrait of a fat, foppish, grinning man hangs on the wall across from a wooden spiral staircase
Mortimer Seaton rolls 20for a Will save and gets 23.
Mortimer Seaton whispers back, "deal."
Gambler 7 says "Baby needs a new pair of shoes!"
Gambler 4 says "What?"
Gambler 7 says "Isn't that what you're supposed to say?"
G.O. Rakius IV picks up a cup of wine and sniffs it before setting it back down and deciding it's not the right vintage for his magically refined palate. "So, who do we need to see about establishing a line of credit around here? Maybe they're looking for dealers? I have my own deck, guaranteed to win big for the house!"
Gambler 4 says "I don't know, sounds dumb to me. You don't even have kids…"
Pow Ming looks over at the new group. Then looks again and starts keeping a close eye on them.
Gambler 2 says "Lord Drylund is the one to talk to about credit, but he's pretty stingy"
Weasel says "Okay, who's going to teach me how to gamble?"
G.O. Rakius IV nudges Mortimer and says, "Hey, she's looking at you, lad!"
Mortimer Seaton says "WHo! Where!"
Weasel walks up to a random person. "OKay, how do we do this?" 
Gambler 3 says "Huh? Do what?"
Mortimer Seaton Whirls around to try and spot the lady GO may be referring to
Weasel says "Gamble. Tell me how this works. "
Pow Ming raises an eyebrow, then sighs
Gambler 3 says "Put money on a number. If that number comes up you win!"
Mortimer Seaton says "Why hello there, how do you do!"
Gambler 3 picks up a marble and poises over the roulette wheel.
G.O. Rakius IV tilts his head toward the not-at-all-scary-looking woman with the scowl on her face and says, "That one, of course. I'm sure she's only grimacing because she's thinking about all the suitors she'll have to turn down now."
Mortimer Seaton reaches out his hand to shake hers…
Pow Ming does NOT hold out her hand
Mortimer Seaton says "I dont know if you heard me, but I was inquiring about how you were doing."
Weasel says "Well this looks complicated. "
Mortimer Seaton says "Well, I am not sure how I offended you, I was simply trying to be polite. I didnt even ask about a date yet. GIve a man a break."
Pow Ming says "I've been better", gets up and heads across the room, sitting in a location where she can survey the whole room.
Gambler 3 says "Nah, just put down a coin. I'll do all the work"
Lord Drylund heads over to speak to Pow Ming
Weasel digs in her bag and pulls out one gold coin, placing it on the table.
G.O. Rakius IV tsks and says, "Well, that was rude. Why are we here again?"
Weasel puts the coin down on the 15 cause it's whats in front of her and she doesn't understand what she's doing. 
> /roll 1d36
GM [DM] rolls a d36 for 5.
Gambler 3 spins the wheel dropping tha ball in. He watches it spin for a while, then it slows, settling on 5
Weasel says "did I win?"
Gambler 3 grabs Weasel's coin "Not this time. miss. Try again. Maybe just black or white this time?"
Gambler 3 says "points to the two spaces marked BLACK and WHITE"
Weasel digs out another coin and says, "okay, black." placing the coin on the black space. 
Mortimer Seaton wanders over to see Weasel playing roulette
Mortimer Seaton says "BLUE!"
> /roll 1d36
GM [DM] rolls a d36 for 8.
Mortimer Seaton says "Weasel, always pick blue"
Gambler 3 spins the wheel dropping tha ball in. He watches it spin for a while, then it slows, settling on 8.
Gambler 3 says "Winner!" and places a second coin on top of Weasel's
Weasel feels a rush of excitement. "Oh I like this!"
Weasel says "Okay, good sir, I keep my coins there. Black!"
> /roll 1d36
GM [DM] rolls a d36 for 23.
Gambler 3 spins the wheel dropping tha ball in. He watches it spin for a while, then it slows, settling on 23
Gambler 3 says "Sorry, miss" and takes both of Weasel's coins, hiding them away in a small bag behind the table.
Weasel rolls 8for a Will save and gets 11.
Weasel says "Wait, What?! That's not fair, you just stole my money! Thief!"
Gambler 3 says "No, miss. You lost. That's different."
Weasel says "Fine! Let's play again! "
Lord Drylund a fat, foppish man, turns around to se G.O. standing right behind him. "Having a good time sir?"
Weasel Places 5 coins on the black marker again. 
G.O. Rakius IV wanders away from the gambling to the corner the mysterious woman retreated to and introduces himself, "Pardon me, milady, sir," nodding to each in turn, "I am G.O. Rakius the Fourth, no doubt you've heard of at least one of me. I and my friends are new here. Might I borrow a moment of your life to ask a few questions while my companions fritter away their life savings in this establishment?"
Gambler 3 says "Place your bets. Round and round an round she goes. Where she stops? Nobody knows!"
Lord Drylund says "Always willing to talk while people are spending money, good man"
Gambler 3 looks to Mortimer "Care to bet sir?"
Mortimer Seaton says "SURE!"
Mortimer Seaton says "But I have no money"
Mortimer Seaton says "Can I bet seashells?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Good, good! You seem a worldly sort. I can't help but notice this place seems a bit untouched by the plague of giants sweeping the land. I've been traveling for some time now, and haven't seen anyone being carried off to slave away at dig sites or hauling giant dung away from caves. Don't suppose you know anything about what's going on everywhere else, do you?"
Lord Grenhold approaches the table and places a coin on 2.
Weasel Hands 10 coins to Morty. "I can't have all the fun!"
Mortimer Seaton considers making it rain but instead decides to use the money more wisely
Mortimer Seaton Evens!
Lord Drylund says "Well we move around a lot, and tend to avoid areas that are, let's say, having problems. Not good for business."
> /roll 1d36
GM [DM] rolls a d36 for 31.
Mortimer Seaton says "What does that mean?"
Gambler 3 spins the wheel dropping tha ball in. He watches it spin for a while, then it slows, settling on "31, WHITE!"
Weasel says "No! "
Gambler 3 takes all the money
Weasel Places 5 more coins on black. "Spin again!
Lord Grenhold places another coin on 2
G.O. Rakius IV nods appreciatively and says, "That makes sense, but surely you've seen a giant or two? You've got some capable, if somewhat shady, guards out there, but I doubt they could handle a full-grown storm giant on a rampage, eh?"
Lord Drylund says "Oh, well, we've SEEN them. But only from a distance. On purpose."
Mortimer Seaton says "put me down for two on black"
Gambler 3 says "Lord Grenhold: 1 on 2 Blue guy: 2 on black Small lady: 5 on black"
> /roll 1d36
GM [DM] rolls a d36 for 18.
Gambler 3 spins the wheel dropping tha ball in. He watches it spin for a while, then it slows, settling on "18 BLACK!"
Mortimer Seaton says "WOOOOO!"
Mortimer Seaton says "Go again!"
Gambler 3 hands Weasel 5 more coins, and hands Mortimer 2 coins. The nhe takes Lord Grenhold's coin from the table.
Weasel pockets 5 of the coins and keeps 5 on the black. "Again, again!"
Mortimer Seaton says "Go again! and puts 3 on black"
Lord Grenhold walks off to find a better game
> /roll 1d36
GM [DM] rolls a d36 for 7.
Gambler 3 spins the wheel dropping tha ball in. He watches it spin for a while, then it slows, settling on "7, WHITE!"
Gambler 3 takes all the moey on the table
Mortimer Seaton says "SHOOT"
G.O. Rakius IV shakes his head and says, "Remarkable. Everyone else seems to try and avoid the giants and just gets rocks and snowballs thrown at them for the effort. Why, even the northern tribes are in a tizzy over it."
Lord Drylund says "Hmm. Yes, well, they don't bother ME."
Weasel bangs her fists on the table, yells "argggghhhhhh" and atempts to flip the table
Weasel rolls 7for a Strength Save skill check and gets 9.
Weasel throws her hands up in the air when she fails to flip the table, and blinks into thin air. 
Weasel uses Level 2 Spell Slot.
Weasel uses Invisibility (Level 2, Touch, 1 hr) on Weasel.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Good luck, that. Must be the house advantage, eh?"
Lord Drylund looks over at the commotion and nods at Pow Ming.
Pow Ming uses Level 2 Slot.
Pow Ming uses Suggestion (Level 2, Concentration) on Weasel.
Found 0 partial name matche[s] for wae.
Lord Drylund says "Looks like your friends are having a hard time…"
One of the windows opens by itself suddenly, then a loud splash sounds fromthe left side of the ship
G.O. Rakius IV sighs and says, "They have social issues. They're not well-adjusted lunatics like the rest of us."
Lord Drylund says "Hmmm"
Lord Drylund says "I get the feeling you came here more to ask questions than to gamble?"
G.O. Rakius IV shrugs and says, "They wanted to gamble, I wanted to ask questions. See, I'm a researcher of no small reknown (in certain circles), and I was trying to find a way to (shh! Varis, daddy is talking!) quell this giant problem when one of my friends came across a coin with your establishment's mark on it. Now, I don't mean to suggest any foul play on your part- even with a mage among your number I doubt you could rouse all the giant clans to motion. But I wonder; have you had any strange visitors or deserters lately who might've got in a spot of trouble?"
Lord Drylund says "And just where did your friend come across this token?"
G.O. Rakius IV shrugs and says, "All these small towns look the same. I want to say… Loach? No, that's a fish… Red Lunch? Or was that the diner in Thay where I met that sweet young paladin? Either way. It was a town, it had some people, and a man who wanted to trade my favorite deck of cards for dusty old jar of beetle souls. As if the beetle soul market was doing so well it would be worth a deck of cards!"
Lord Drylund says "Red Larch? Ah, that'd be Vallivoe."
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Ah! Yes! So you know that purveyor of shoddy fan-made merchandise?"
Lord Drylund says "A deck of cards, you say? I'm a bit of a collector…"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "A man of refinement, indeed! Collecting cards is quite an enjoyable hobby for me, too. Why, I once had a rare, mint-condition Drizzt Do'Urden rookie card… back when he played for the Menzoberranzan Marauders before he was traded to that stupid unicorn team? Can't remember what I did with it, though. I imagine it's somewhere in my lab, but who has time to go looking for lost labs when the world is in need of saving?" 
Lord Drylund looks confused
Weasel sneaks back onto the boat, and goes straight to the place where they stashed the weapons. 
G.O. Rakius IV says, "At any rate… Is there any reason you can think of that someone carrying your coin might have run afoul of a giant or two? From the sound of it, there must've been a scuffle."
Lord Drylund takes a small step back. "I'm not sure I Like what you're insinuating"
Mortimer Seaton gets distracted gambling more and barely notices that Weasel is gone
Mortimer Seaton says "Three on black!"
> /roll 1d36
GM [DM] rolls a d36 for 14.
Gambler 3 Gambler 3 spins the wheel dropping tha ball in. He watches it spin for a while, then it slows, settling on "14, BLACK!" and hands Mortimer 3 coins
Mortimer Seaton says "Yes! I would like to put another 3 on black."
G.O. Rakius IV shrugs and says, "I wasn't insinuating anything, but you're implicating yourself with such defensive posture. Like I said, I'm just looking for answers and a way to stop a coalition of giants from wrecking the world. If you know anything that could help, it'd be appreciated."
Lord Drylund says "Perhaps we should retire to my office to continue this discussion?"
> /roll 1d36
GM [DM] rolls a d36 for 9.
Gambler 3 says "9, WHITE. Sorry, sir."
Weasel grabs her axe, and morty's trident, and turns to walk back into the hall. 
Weasel rolls 9for a Stealth skill check and gets 10.
Mortimer Seaton says "I think your dice are weighted"
Guard 2 rolls 10for a Perception skill check and gets 10.
Guard 2 hears a small nois and starts to turn around, then shrugs and continues biting his fingernails.
Gambler 3 says "dice?"
Gambler 3 says "This is roulette…"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Certainly. Wouldn't want the clientele to lose their appetite before they lose their money, right?" He turns his head and shouts, "Morty! I'm going with this nice man to talk. You coming, or do you want to keep throwing Weasel's money out the window?"
Mortimer Seaton says "wheel?"
Weasel hear's G.O's announcement, and follows him. 
Lord Drylund says "Walk this way" and scurries up the stairs at the back of the room
G.O. Rakius IV does his best to imitate the scurrying manner in which the other man heads up the stairs.
Gambler 3 says "Are you implying the house is cheating?"
Ilyena sits dangling her feet in the water, totally oblivious to everything going on around her and completely content with that realization.
Lord Drylund looks curiously at G.O. "Whay are you walking like that?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Bad hip. Ever since that unfortunate business at Candlekeep."
Weasel followed G.O.
Lord Drylund leads G.O into his office
Lord D lund's cabin is a testament to bad taste, with its purple velvet curtains and scented candles in gaudy candelabras. In the middle of the room is a table with a large aquarium tank resting atop it. The aquarium contains a coral reef that serves as home for Lord Dry­lund's pet octopus. As Lord Drylund sits down, the octopus crawls out of the tank and wraps itself around his shoulders
Other furnishings include a silk hammock, a writing desk (covered with quills and loose sheets of blank parchment), a small table holding a silver wine decanter and matching goblet, and an iron stove.
Lord Drylund says "So, what's this really about?"
G.O. Rakius IV watches the creature climb out of the tank and says, "You know you have a cephalopod on your back, right?"
Lord Drylund pets the octopus lovingly.
Weasel gets bored and slips back out of the office, and upstairs, creeping around behind the gamblers, trying to sneak a few golden coins out of bags. 
G.O. Rakius IV crosses his arms over his chest and tries not to look the octopus in the eyes as he speaks, "Giants. It's about giants. Wrecking things. Someone got them all riled up and I don't like it when giants get all riled up. Neither do my friends. I'm looking to put them down, and so far the best clue I've got is that someone carrying one of your coins seems to have had something to do with at least one part of it. I just want to know who."
Weasel rolls 20for a Reflex save and gets 23.
Weasel rolls 19for a Fortitude save and gets 28.
Lord Drylund says "Have you considered that you might be in over your head?"
Weasel sneaks up behind the person that stole her money, and attempts to take money from their bag. 
Weasel rolls 14for a Sleight Of Hand skill check and gets 15.
G.O. Rakius IV scoffs, "I'm a G.O. Rakius! Over my head is the way I do all my business."
Gambler 3 rolls 18for a Perception skill check and gets 20.
Gambler 3 rolls 12for a Dexterity Save skill check and gets 13.
Gambler 3 feels a tug at the bag on his hip and reaches down, swatting something away.
Lord Drylund says "I'm just saying, there's some big players in this. Might get a bit, dangerous."
Weasel high fives the gambler as he reaches his hand down. 
G.O. Rakius IV leans forward with his hands on the rim of the aquarium and says, "A week ago I killed three yetis and two giants and about a score of barbarians. A few days before that, I tamed a pack of griffons by giving them frozen dwarf heads, and I have a demon for a best friend. Danger doesn't scare me. I'm the biggest player there is. What's the score, chief?"
Gambler 3 jumps a bit, surprised at feeling a hand, down there.
Lord Drylund eyes G.O. with a new wariness.
Weasel tries to take more money while he's distracted by the surprise. 
Lord Drylund says "Are you threatening me?"
Weasel rolls 6for a Dexterity Save skill check and gets 7.
Gambler 3 feels another tug at his belt and grabs his coin purse, clutching it to his chest.
G.O. Rakius IV laughs a dry, barking laugh, "If I was threatening you," he says straightening up again and waving one hand in the air, "Your boat would be on fire and you'd be screaming 'Yes, G.O.! I'll tell you everything, just please stop destroying my livelyhood and all my friends!'" He shakes his head and says, "No, I'm not threatening you. I'm just letting you know I'm not some upstart adventurer sticking their nose where it doesn't belong. I'm the current G.O. Rakius, and ending world threats is what a G.O. Rakius does best."
Lord Drylund says "Oh. Well, what's the info worth to you?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Depends on if you tell me something I don't already know, doesn't it? Give me what I need, and I might be convinced to send some more business your way. I know some dragons with a lot of coin to spare."
Lord Drylund 's eyes light up. "Dragons with extra money? Alright. Well you see it's like this…"

Session 42 - Truth or Dare

Last session the group proved what Phanboys and Phangirls you are and killed some monsters in exchange for room and board for the night.

Mitsurugi says "Oooh, look, a boat!"
Mitsurugi jumps in the boat
Weasel says "I've always wanted a boat"
Weasel says "Guess this will have to do until we can take over the big boat "
Mitsurugi says "There are a lot of boats out there, but this one's mine"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "I had a boat once. It was in a bottle, and it could sail across the planes… but no one could ride it, and sometimes it came back with miniature pirates onboard who just made a mess of my lab…"
Mortimer Seaton says "I have a friend who lost a limb from a boat"
Mitsurugi rows the boat down the tunnel and yells back "You all go on ahead, I'll catch up later. I want to see what's down here."
Weasel says "Some of my best friends are boats. "
Mortimer Seaton says "And another who fell inlove with a sailor one one… that was interesting. She grew legs and straight up walked out of the sea."
Weasel says "how beautiful "
Mortimer Seaton says "If only everyone could have love like that"
Mitsurugi disappears into the dark tunnel.
Mortimer Seaton Goes to call out for Mitsurgi but realizes that it it too late and begins to stifle tears
Mitsurugi yells back down the tunnel "Don't cry for me Argentina. THe truth is I never left you!"
G.O. Rakius IV sighs, "And there goes my favorite giant slayer. Weasel, I guess that means you're in charge of reckless abandonment and shouty stuff. Ilyena, just keep doing that thing you do that keeps us alive. Morty! Let's go find your true love. We need a new meat shie… I mean, I'm sure s/he won't be as squishy as the last four…"
Mitsurugi yells "WELL EXCEPT NOW…"
Weasel brandishes her axe and grins excitedly 
Mortimer Seaton starts to feel a little better about the abandonment.. from another parental figure… again. But then remembers. Daddy issues.
Mortimer Seaton says "Weasel, are you planning on killing my true love? Whats the axe for?"
Ilyena gives a thumbs up at G.O. 
Weasel says "G.O put me in charge of reckless abandonment and shouty stuff. I'm just getting ready. "
G.O. Rakius IV asks, "Didn't we have a couple other guys too? The glowy one we found after the dwarf's exceedingly brutal demise (I lit his body on fire, right Varis?) and that sneaky guy with the bad songs?"
Weasel says "Who nees 'em anyways. We can handle this saving the world thing on our own. "
Ilyena wonders why everyone is acting like their companions are dead, when they gave no indication they weren't going to be back at any moment. 
Weasel says " I guess we move on without them. They'll catch up when/if they can. "
G.O. Rakius IV says, "I don't know. This seems like the darkest timeline all of a sudden. I mean, I'm sure we'll be fine, but I like to mitigate damage by spreading it around, and the divisor just got a lot smaller… But, yes! Sally forth! Where were we going anyway?"
Weasel says "We're waiting for a boat! "
Weasel says "but not here. Like a big boat. "
G.O. Rakius IV shouts back up the stairs, "HEY! WHEN'S THIS THING GETTING HERE?!"
Mortimer Seaton says "Wait! If we got these bad guys, do I get to go on a date with a storm giant?"
Weasel says "Yes! yes you do Morty. So you better not screw this up. "
Mortimer Seaton says "Oh man, so much pressure. Should I get her flowers?"
The Guard Captain yells down the stairs "You done down there?"
Mortimer Seaton says "Yessir! Be right up!"
G.O. Rakius IV shouts, "NO! WE'RE DANCING ON THE ASTRAL PLANE WITH THREE-HEADED NYMPHS IN A CONGA LINE!"
The Guard Captain comes barreling down the stairs. "Nymphs?"
The Guard Captain says "Oh, you were pulling my leg"
Weasel runs back up the stairs, flailing her axe. "Alright, what's next?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "I would never pull your leg, sir! I don't know where it's been."
The Guard Captain sighs and follows Weasel up the stairs "Sheathe the weapon, lass. Dinner is next and we provide cutlery"
Ilyena follows Weasel up the stairs. "I hope dinner is better…"
The Guard Captain says "Than what?"
G.O. Rakius IV mutters, "I just hope it's not roast kuo-toa…" and follows the others up the stairs.
Mortimer Seaton didnt realize he was hungry until his stomach rumbles so loudly he swears the floor shakes
Ilyena grins at him brightly. "Than the road food we've been consuming!" 
Ralf starts delivering food to the table "Dig in!"
Mortimer Seaton says "Why hello there! Thank you so much for this food."
Ralf says "Um, you're welcome!"
Mortimer Seaton says "What is your name? I am Mortimer Seaton, but my friends here have taken to calling me Morty."
G.O. Rakius IV says, "I don't know. I don't normally trust the kindness of strangers. You lot wouldn't be trying to poison us or give us really bad gas, would you?"
Ralf says "Ralf"
Mortimer Seaton says "Ralf, it is a pleasure to meet you."
The Guard Captain takes a bite of the roast beast "Satisfactory?"
Ralf says "likewise. Can I get you anything to drink?"
G.O. Rakius IV shouts, "YOUR MAJESTY?! What are you doing serving food to these peasants?!"
Ralf looks at G.O. and gets nervous "Excuse me?"
Mortimer Seaton says "Your majesty?"
Ilyena stops eating and looks at G.O. in surprise. 
Mortimer Seaton says "Forgive me for being so rude. I did not mean to talk with you in such a casual manner"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "You're the king, aren't you? King Ralf? Pretty sure I heard of you. You were a backwater bumpkin who turned out to be the last/next in line for an island nation's throne. Shenanigans ensued? That's you, right?"
Ralf says "um, no sir"
Weasel digs into her food, only partially paying attention tot he conversation at hand. 
G.O. Rakius IV sighs and says, "Damn. Darkest timeline confirmed. Carry on."
Ralf looks down at his feet and hustles out of the room
The Guard Captain approaches the table "Is there a problem with one of my servers? Please let me know. There's no need for a bad review on Yelp"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Oh, nothing. I just thought he was someone I saw in my scrying glass once. The picture was fuzzy, though. It was before high-definition scrying was a thing… which I invented!" then mutters, "and forgot how to do…"
The Guard Captain says "oh. ok , then."
The Guard Captain says "As soon as you're ready I can show you to your rooms."
Weasel says, with her mouth full, "G.O. Sometimes you say the weirdest things."
The Guard Captain mutters to himself as he walks away "sometimes?"
Mortimer Seaton says "OMG Are we having a sleepover!? I didnt realize!"
Weasel calls after the guard captain, "Um! We get our own rooms right?!"
G.O. Rakius IV shrugs and says, "You try glancing sideways at time through a fish-eye lens sometime. See if it doesn't give you some funny ideas about stuff." He snags a leg of something cooked and shoves off from the table saying, "Sleep sounds great if you don't try to murder us."
The Guard Captain says "pokes his head out of the kitchen. I'm sorry, I mis-spoke. Your room…"
Mortimer Seaton says "YAY! PILLOW FIGHT!"
Weasel says "Um… maybe I'll just sleep here… on the table…"
The Guard Captain says "This way then, please"
Ilyena asks, "What's a pillow fight?" Imagines ensorcelled pillows with little swords…
Mortimer Seaton says "Oh come on Weasel, tt will be fun!"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "It's when you accidentally summon a cadre of lesser devils into goose down. It can get pretty messy. Especially if the geese are still alive."
The Guard Captain says "This is your room for the night"
Weasel says "At least we all get our own bed."
This plain dormitory features six bunk beds and a small wooden table and chairs, as well as two large laundry tubs and several baskets full of dirty clothes and linens.
Weasel yells "TOP BUNK!"
The Guard Captain says "Oh, whoops, let me take those" and grabs the baskets, carrying them downstairs
Ilyena nods along at G.O., thinking his description made perfect sense. 
G.O. Rakius IV flops down on a bed and starts gnawing on his leg of beast until there's nothing left but the bone. When he tosses it in the air, it just disappears with a sickening CHOMP.
Weasel says "Umm. Wait. G.O… is that imaginary thing that you talk to… real?"
Mortimer Seaton fluffs his pillows, not wanting to disturb Weasel due to her lack of interest in pilow fighting, and heads to bed.
Mortimer Seaton says "Wait! What was in that guys basket?"
G.O. Rakius IV shrugs himself under the covers and says, "Don't be silly. I don't talk to imaginary things."
Weasel lays in bed, very stiffly, and can't fall asleep. 
Weasel says "So how does a 'sleep over' work Morty?"
Mortimer Seaton says "Well, sometimes you sit around playing games to get to know one another, which could be fun because well we have been traveling together but dont really know much about each other. Sometimes people would tell shark tales and other scary stories, and sometimes you have pillow fights"
Mortimer Seaton says "We could always play other games too! Really whatever you want."
Weasel says "Any fighting I do, I do to kill. No matter what the weapon of choice. "
Mortimer Seaton says "Oh! Pillow fights arent like that"
Weasel says "Then I suggest we don't do pillow fights "
Mortimer Seaton says "Want to play a game?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Pillow fights are serious business. You ever seen a possessed feather fly into someone's eye?" 
Weasel says "What kind of game? I play to win. "
Mortimer Seaton says "We can play truth or dare?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "If you really want to play a game…" and pulls out a deck of cards, "we can see what your future is!"
Weasel yells "NO"
Weasel says "No, that's okay. I like Morty's games. "
Mortimer Seaton says "Or never have I ever?"
Mortimer Seaton says "OH! We could play hide and go seek!"
Weasel says "Truth or Dare? I'm daring! Let's play that one!"
Mortimer Seaton says "Okay! So pick one, truth or dare. And then I get to ask a question or dare you to do something"
Weasel says "Dare! Obviously!"
Mortimer Seaton says "I dare you to go searching through the room across the hall. And bring me a souvenier"
Weasel giggles and hops out of bed, sneaking across the hall to the other room. 
Weasel rolls 12for a Stealth skill check and gets 13.
Weasel starts to riffle through the desk and shelves in the room, looking for something to take back to Morty. 
Weasel grabs a small scrap of paper with giddy excitement, and slips it into her pocket, then slowly opens the door and peaks her head out to make sure no one is coming. 
Weasel skips back into her room, waving the paper high abover her head. "A drawing of Torin, signed by the minstrel himself!" 
Weasel says "Oooo that was fun. Okay. Who's next? Who's next? "
Ilyena sits up, raising her hand. "I'll go!"
Weasel says "Okay. Ilyena, truth or dare? "
Mortimer Seaton says "Oooo thats so cool! Good find!"
Weasel looks to Morty for confirmation that she did that correctly. 
Ilyena doesn't really know how to play the game, so she chooses the same thing Weasel had chosen. "Dare."
Mortimer Seaton says "Yeah, that's exactly how it goes!"
Weasel dangles her legs off her top bunk and bounces up and down with excitement. "Okay, okay. I dare you to sneak out and… and… give one of the guards a wedgie." 
Weasel says "I can make you invisible first, if you want?"
Ilyena nods and gets up, starting to head for the door. After a couple of steps she pauses, looking back at Weasel. "What's a wedgie?"
Weasel giggles
G.O. Rakius IV grumbles, "Yes, please, go start a fight with our hosts. It's been like an hour since I got to kill something."
Weasel says "you have to pull their knickers up from the back so it gets pulled into their butt."
Weasel says "psh. we're not going to start any fights! That's why I offered to make her invisible first. "
Ilyena ponders the mental image for a moment. "Yes, I think invisibility would probably work best."
G.O. Rakius IV says, "You do know how invisibility spells work, right? That would be a hostile action. She'd be invisible just long enough to reach the guard, then there'd be a visible elf grabbing them by the smallclothes."
G.O. Rakius IV muses, "Unless of course you know a greater form of invisibility… then I suppose it would be alright…"
Weasel says "Fine, you're no fun. What do you suggest she do? "
Weasel says "What if she flicked him? Or just didn't pull very hard? "
Weasel says "Anyways, she said dare so she has to do it. No backing out. "
Mortimer Seaton says "She could tie his shoelaces together?"
Weasel uses Level 2 Spell Slot.
Weasel uses Invisibility (Level 2, Touch, 1 hr) on Ilyena.
Weasel says "Ohhhh that's a good one!"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Oh, no. The rules only allow for one dare and one response. If you break the rules, you break the world. Do you WANT to break the world? I mean, I do it all the time, but I thought you were into saving it?"
Weasel says "Okay. Go tie his shoe laces together. "
Mortimer Seaton says "G.O. Would you stop being such a party pooper!?"
Ilyena looks back and forth between the two of them while they argue. When it is finally quiet she simply turns and walks out the door. 
G.O. Rakius IV says, "I can't. That beast leg went right through me."
Weasel assumes she's following the invisible Ilyena, and peaks her head through the railing to watch the mayhem ensue. 
Ilyena rolls 17for a Stealth skill check and gets 18.
Weasel rolls 9for a Stealth skill check and gets 10.
Weasel whispers "Careful G.O. You're up next. "
Guard rolls 10for a Perception skill check and gets 10.
Ilyena steps quietly through the halls of the keep, looking for a guard. 
Guard perks his ears up at a noise from upstairs, but then settles back down.
Weasel stiffles a giggle watching the unsuspecting guards. 
Ilyena — Moving slowly and quietly, Ilyena makes her way past a couple of guards looking various levels of alert to one sitting at the large dining room table. With great care, she positions herself under the table so she can reach his shoes, and calmly unties the neat bows. 
The Guard Captain takes a swig from his ale, then sets it back on the table, rubbing his eyes.
Weasel looks around, wondering which guard will be the poor subject of her prank
Ilyena pauses every so often, letting everything settle before continuing. Laces untied, she quickly ties them to each other in a bunny ear knot and extricates herself from her cramped position so she can head back upstairs.
The Guard Captain lays his head on the table and begins snoring.
Ilyena returns to stand next to Weasel. "Now what?" She says quietly, close to her ear. 
Weasel jumps and smacks her head on the bannester at Ilyena's whisper. 
The Guard Captain lifts his head with a start at the noise. He starts to rise, but his feet seem to be stuck together and he bumps the bench and goes over backwards in a clatter of weapond and chainmail.
Guard snickers
Weasel claps a hand over her mouth and runs back to the room, before breaking out into laughter. 
The Guard Captain looks around wildly to see if anyone noticed…
Guard says "snort"
Ilyena follows quickly, not wanting to get caught. "I hope he wasn't hurt…"
Weasel says "This game is great. What other trouble can we cause? "
Mortimer Seaton says "Ilyena, I think it's your turn to ask someone!"
Ilyena looks around, a little startled. "Oh, umm, I guess…Who is next?"
Mortimer Seaton says "G.O?"
Mortimer Seaton says "Or shall I go?"
G.O. Rakius IV scoffs, "I don't play silly games. I deal only in truths!"
Weasel says "Truth it is!"
Ilyena looks to Weasel. "So I ask a question now? What kind of question?" They hadn't done this yet, so she had no frame of reference. 
Weasel shruggs, turning to Morty. "What kind of question do we ask?"
Mortimer Seaton says "Anything you want to know! And G.O. gets to respond with a true answer, but since he only deals in truths this should be easy for him"
Weasel says "What happened to G.O the first?"
Ilyena ponders this for a minute. "What is Varis?" He had mentioned the name often enough, but never really explained it. 
Weasel says "This is Ilyena's turn. Answer her question. "
G.O. Rakius IV mutters, "That's two questions… but they're not all that disconnected…" He sighs and says, "Fine. G.O. Rakius Prime was killed by G.O. Rakius the Second, who took his place of power and became the new G.O. Prime. He had some help from a lesser demon bound as his familiar: Varis. Who has served every successor G.O. in turn." Then he shouts, "Yes you do, Varis!"
Weasel says "But why? Why did G.O Rakius the second kill G.O. Rakius prime?"
G.O. Rakius IV twitches one eye and says, "That's three questions! That's not how the game is played! I know these things."
Weasel says "Okay, next time then"
Weasel says "But I'm going to remember!"
Weasel says "I think that means it's your turn G.O."
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Does that mean I can dare you all to go to sleep now?"
Weasel says "No, only one person. "
G.O. Rakius IV mutters and rolls over in his bed to face the wall and says, "Mortimer! Choose your fate!"
Mortimer Seaton says "Truth!"
Weasel says "haha! your plans have been thwarted again G.O!"
G.O. Rakius IV asks without hesitation, "Would you rather go to sleep now, or be fireballed?"
Weasel whispers "oh, that's a good question. "
Mortimer Seaton says "I would rather you play nicely and if you dont want to join us, then you can continue to be a grumpy old man and go to sleep on your own."
Weasel says "Maybe it is time for bed. We can play next time we have a sleep over. "
Weasel yawns and lays back in bed. "Maybe G.O will wake up a little nicer." 
G.O. Rakius IV mutters to himself and says, "Darkest timeline, kiddies. Don't count on it." then promptly dozes off to let the others do what they will.
Weasel whispers "any idea what this darkest timeline thing is? "
Weasel whispers "anyone? No? Okay. Goodnight."
Mortimer Seaton says "Okay, well goodnight then!"
Except for a bit of yelling from the guard captain, the rest of the night passes quietly. The next thing you know, there's a knocking at the door. KNOCK KNOCK
*
Weasel** bolts upright from her sleep. "I didn't do it!"
The Guard Captain pounds on the door. "Didn't you want to join the Grand Dame? It went by about an hour ago…"
Mortimer Seaton says "Who is it?"
Weasel says "It's already gone, and you didn't wake us sooner?!"
Mortimer Seaton bolts upright and hops out of bed, missing pants
The Guard Captain says " You didn't leave a request for a wake-up call"
Mortimer Seaton quickly pulls them back to cover himself and prepares to run to whatever he is late for
Weasel says "I assumed telling you the boat we wanted to be on was enough! How are we supposed to get there now? Swim? "
G.O. Rakius IV grumbles about his back and pushes himself to a sitting position. "I'm beginning to think this ship is a lie and this fort is a trap. If you don't call the ship back right now, I'm lighting you all on fire!"
The Guard Captain says "I can have ol' one eyed Jack take you over to Womford, where it docks. About a 20 minute trip. Do you want breakfast first?"
Weasel grumbles, "As long as we're already late, we might as well eat first." 
The Guard Captain says "I'll have it ready for you downstairs"
G.O. Rakius IV shoves himself up to his feet and says, "Can't we eat on the way? Morty has a date to get to, and I have a gambling ship to burn down."
Ilyena sits up, stretching prettily. She yawns, and bird lights on the windowsill and chirps at her. "Good morning, friends!"
Weasel blinks a couple times at Ilyena's perky mood, then turns back to the captain, and grumbles. "I guess breakfast on the way is good enough. My axe hasn't seen any action since… well… yesterday when we killed things."
Mortimer Seaton says "Oh yes! A date!"
Weasel says "Let's just go. "
The guard captain packs up some to-go bags for the group then sees you out to a rickety old boat manned by a sailor with an eye patch. One-eyed Jack takes you downriver to Womford and deposits you on the dock near the Grand Dame. *
G.O. Rakius IV pats Weasel on the head as he walks by and says, "That's the spirit! Think with your weapon and you'll never go awry. Except when horrible pain and violent death strip us from this mortal coil. I'll try to make sure the Fifth does right by your corpse."
Weasel rests.
G.O. Rakius IV rests.
Mortimer Seaton rests.
Ilyena rests.
Selected Creature(s) have rested.
Player [Clint] rolls a d20 for 5.
Player [Clint] rolls a d20 for 7.
GM [DM] heals Weasel, G.O. Rakius IV, Mortimer Seaton, Ilyena to maximum.
The boat in front of you is an ornately decorated riverboat that has been pressed into service as a gambling hall. The oars are slack while in port, but several guards man the gangways.
*
G.O. Rakius IV** uses Spell Slot (Lvl 1).
G.O. Rakius IV takes one look at the riverboat and asks, "How do we want to play this? Ask questions and try to get answers, or burn them all and find a necromancer to ask their ghosts?"

Session 41 - Weird Science

Last week the group picked up some souvenirs, novelties, and party tricks from Vallivoe in Red LArch and found out the poker chip was from a floating casino on the Dessarin River. You then headed east and encountered a keep on the river, followed by several infuriating software issues…
Weasel whispers "should someone knock?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Well, maybe, but we could just do that thing where the door explodes inward and we trash the place until people give us stuff?"
The soldier with a keen interest in birds leans over the parapet and calls "Who goes there?"
Mitsurugi says "I go here!"
Mitsurugi says "Let me in!"
Mortimer Seaton knocks to the tune of "shave and a haircut"
The soldier with a keen interest in birds says "Pull the other one!"
Weasel yells back, "the other what?" 
The soldier with a keen interest in birds says "The other leg, you buffoon!"
G.O. Rakius IV shouts, "How 'bout I pull one leg and my battle-hardened friend with the big sword here pulls the other, we make a wish, and you tell us whether or not it comes true?"
The soldier with a keen interest in birds says "I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!"
Mortimer Seaton says "My family used to do that for the holidays! I would love to join for the sake of reminicing"
G.O. Rakius IV sighs and replies, "MY mother was a quarter-giant from another dimension, and my father was… well, we don't need to get into that right now. Either way! What's it take to get this bloody door opened so we can talk to someone who can recognize the horrific things I can do to them if they don't talk to us?"
The soldier with a keen interest in birds says "You don't frighten us, English pig dogs. Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of a silly person. I blow my nose at you."
Mortimer Seaton says "HELLO UP THERE!"
The soldier with a keen interest in birds says "Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time!"
Mortimer Seaton says "DO YOU HAVE A COLD? I HAVE TISSUES IF YOU NEED THEM"
The soldier with a keen interest in birds says "I'm French. Why do you think I have this outrageous accent, you silly adventurer?"
Weasel yells "IS THERE SOMEONE ELSE UP THERE WE CAN TALK TO?"
Mortimer Seaton says "YOU SAID YOU NEEDED TO BLOW YOUR NOSE! I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU WERE OKAY SIR"
Mitsurugi says "So we're breaking down the door now right?"
G.O. Rakius IV whispers, "I've been to several planes and timelines, but even I don't know what in Crom's name he's saying. What is a french? Is that some kind of village idiot?"
A second guard says "What?"
Weasel yells "THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE! WE'VE BEEN MORE THAN REASONABLE!"
The soldier with a keen interest in birds misses Mitsurugi with Cowtapult. 
Mortimer Seaton says softly to the group down on the ground, "Do you think we could just fly over it? Teleport? Turn into birds? Something like that?"
Weasel yells "THAT DOES IT! CHARGE!!!!"
G.O. Rakius IV nods at Mortimer, "All of the above."
Mortimer Seaton says "HEY! PLEASE KEEP THE BULLYING TO HEAD GAMES AND TAUNTING, HITTING PEOPLE IS JUST NOT NICE""
G.O. Rakius IV uses Spell Slot (Lvl 1).
Mortimer Seaton whispers to the group again, "So, what do you think our best option is"
Weasel starts banging at the doors to charge in. 
A second guard yells "TO ARMS, TO ARMS! FOR THE PHANNY PACK!"
Weasel Stops banging down the doors. "You know the phanny pack!?!"
The soldier with a keen interest in birds says "Well of course. This keep is owned by the Phanny Pack!"
Weasel says "Are they here?"
Mortimer Seaton says "HEY! IVE HEARD OF THEM! I USED TO HAVE A POSTER OF THE ON MY BEDROOM WALL!! It didnt last too long though, being underwater and all…""
Ilyena approaches the wall and holds her hand to it. She attempts to concentrate while the others talk to the guards, but in the end lowers her hand, forming a fist out of frustration. Silently, she rejoins the others a few paces away. 
The soldier with a keen interest in birds says "None of your business. But we do have a gift shop (for people who arent trying to break in)."
Weasel says "Maybe if you hadn't insulted us we would have tried to break in. "
A second guard turns to the first fuard and mutters "Gift shop is sold out"
The soldier with a keen interest in birds says "Ammendment: We used to have a gift shop"
Mortimer Seaton says "GOOD SIR, IS THERE A MORE PRACTICAL WAY OF GETTING IN? LIKE A FRONT DOOR?"
Mortimer Seaton says "I AM MORE THAN HAPPY TO FLY MYSELF OVER THESE WALLS IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE UNREASONABLE"
The soldier with a keen interest in birds says "Why should we want you in here? Keep out there."
Mortimer Seaton says "BECAUSE WE ARE NICE!"
Mortimer Seaton says "AND I AM ALWAYS LOOKING TO MAKE NEW FRIENDS"
A second guard says "Are you an artificer?"
The soldier with a keen interest in birds says "No he means 'making friends with people' not actually constructing friends…"
A second guard says "Oh"
Weasel says "what if I said I was sorry for trying to break the door down?"
Guard Captain says "What are you two doing up here? Did you close the main door again? How are we supposed to rent rooms when you keep..Oh, visitors!"
Guard Captain yells "OPEN THE DOORS!"
Mortimer Seaton says "HELLO UP THERE!"
Mortimer Seaton says "THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HOSPITALITY"
Guard Captain says "Greetings travellers! Come in and rest!"
The giant stone gate opens and reveals a short hall leading to the inner grounds.
Mitsurugi says "I mean I guess?"
G.O. Rakius IV says to no one in particular, "You take the center, I'll take the rear, and if any funny stuff happens I'll probably light you on fire to distract them…"
Weasel says "Why thank you. "
Mortimer Seaton skips ahead through the open gate
Guard Captain approaches the group jovially "Welcome!"
Mitsurugi says "This place is dirtier than I anticipated."
Ilyena grins at the Captain and gives a cheery, "Hello!"
G.O. Rakius IV says to Mitsurugi, "It's staffed by morons who make bodily excretions at passersby. What did you expect?"
The Guard Captain ignore Mitsurugi and looks at Ilyena "What can do for you? Need a meal, a room?"
Weasel says "We need the leader of the Golden Goose Casino. Think you can get us in with them?"
The Guard Captain says "The golden Goose? I don't personally know Lor Drylund, but the boat is due by in the morning if it's on its regular schedule"
Weasel says "In that case, a room and a meal would be wonderful. "
Weasel says "And an introduction to the phanny pack if possible…"
Mortimer Seaton says "I always welcome a fresh meal good sir, I do have a rumbling in my tummy"
Mitsurugi says "And if you have anyone in need of training, I could teach them a thing or two. Specifically that guard with a keen interest in birds."
The Guard Captain says "I'm so sorry. Didn't you know the Phanny Pack broke up? We don't have any schedule for a reunion tour"
Weasel looks hearbroken, like she's about to cry. "They… they.. what?" 
The Guard Captain says "Yeah. Rumour is that Halla and Percival were killed and the rest of them went their separate ways."
Mitsurugi says "I heard Percival wasn't actually killed. That he was actually just a clone and the real Percival was controlling it through Astral Projection."
Mitsurugi says "But I wouldn't really know I don't follow such things."
The Guard Captain says "Bah, I have heard such conspiracy theories, but do not believe them"
The Guard Captain leads the group across the yard "This way to supper"
G.O. Rakius IV shakes his head and says, "Who cares? They'll just fail at their solo projects and get together again later when they run out of cash."
Mitsurugi says "I bet the food here is worse than the decor."
Ilyena follows, practically skipping, despite the bulk of her armor. 
Weasel says "But what of the others? Where did they go?"
Mitsurugi says "For a super fan you don't seem to be very in the know."
The Guard Captain says "I do not know. I have passed on to you all I heard from Torin when last he was here."
The Guard Captain leads the group to the doors of the main hall
Mitsurugi follows close behind the guard captain, making sure to survey the area and note all structural and strategic weaknesses.
Weasel winces at Mitsu's comment. "Just because I like them doesn't mean I'm creepy about it, and follow their every move… especially since no one has heard from them in over a year…" 
Ilyena points at the Captain. "Except that guy."
Mitsurugi says "Everyone knows where Gore-Ak is."
Mitsurugi says "Scourge of the seas. He's not a half bad fighter either."
The Guard Captain gestures to a long wooden table with benches "Please, have a seat and I'll bring you some hors d'ouvres"
Mitsurugi bursts out laughing as he runs his fingers over a long scar on his side.
Mitsurugi approaches the table and sits down. He really wasn't excited about the food.
Ralf brings out a plate of unidentifiable food and tosses it onto the table.
Mitsurugi says "And if you've even been in the same towen as The Great Gubal Library then you've heard of Bryn. She's been consumin knowlegde so fast it's weirded everyone out. Especially because she's so young. You'd like her Morty."
Ralf turns away and walks back to the kitchen with a "Humph"
Mitsurugi says "About what I'd expect from a dump like this."
Weasel looks sad that everyone knows more than her.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Oh, I guess news of the various pits doesn't really get around, huh? Even I know the big one has been rampaging around the Nine Hells like he owns the place. Why do you think all the demons keep trying to get mad wizards to hang out with on THIS plane? Nobody likes being hugged to death. Geez."
Mortimer Seaton says "oh sosh, i have heard of this bryn. Isnt she a child genius!?"
Mitsurugi says "She's pretty impressive. She tried to tell me about some quantum something or other but it went over my head. "
Mitsurugi says "Now Mara on the other hand… No one really knows what happened to her."
Mortimer Seaton says "But… I think she may be a little young for me"
G.O. Rakius IV perks up, "This child sounds amazing! I must pick her brain! I might even let her keep it in her head…"
Mitsurugi says "Some say she went mad with grief over the loss of a friend. Other's say her lust for Necromantic power drove her to commit terrible atrocities."
Mortimer Seaton says "See, Mara was the one on my poster. I wouldnt mind meeting her at some point"
Weasel chuckles. "Loss of a friend. Good one. Halla didn't even like her. Everyone knew that."
G.O. Rakius IV shouts, "Great Scott, Morty! Your kids! Think about your kids!"
GM uses Inspiration on G.O. Rakius IV.
Mitsurugi says "I wouldn't be so eager if I were you Morty, she's as cold blooded as they come. And, well, from what I hear she developed a rather unsightly growth on her face from her dark experimentation."
Mitsurugi says "Nonsense! Halla may have been cold and distant at times, but everyone knew Mara was one of the only people she graced with her affections."
G.O. Rakius IV tsks, "Necromantic cysts can be covered up with a minor illusion. No big deal."
Mitsurugi says "But you know, I don't follow them at all or anything."
Mortimer Seaton says "Oh, yeah? Weasel, you are sounding a little jealous over there…"
Weasel says "Halla had no affections. Except an old boyfriend that met a pretty terrible fate. If anyone was going to snap it would have been Mara. She was getting pretty close to a breakdown even with the group holding her together."
Mitsurugi says "Rumor was she and Ro-Kai had a pair of friendship earrings. Maybe you don't know the Phanny Pack as well as you thought you did."
Ilyena sits quietly and listens to the others, incredibly amused at their opinions about people she's never met and only vaguely heard of. 
Weasel pouts 
Mitsurugi says "Of all of them, Orin is the only one I've never met. I just need his signature and then my collection will be complete."
Mitsurugi says "Er, that's what I would say if I cared at all of course."
Mitsurugi says "Which I don't."
Weasel says "What about Kairon? You're telling me you've met Kairon?"
Weasel says "Or are you only a fan of the new generation Phanny Pack?"
Weasel says "They say Kairon is the one that gave Mara the thirst for power. "
Mitsurugi says "Kairon disappeared. Everyone knows that. Maybe I did get his signature though. Maybe I met him in a dark cave as he was summoning his patron for more power. Maybe I had to fight him. Maybe I have his "signature" carved in blood on my body."
Mitsurugi says "Or maybe not Haha!"
Mitsurugi looks down at the food and decides it might be best not to eat today.
Ilyena tilts her head, looking Mitsurugi over. "Do you?"
Ilyena says "I'd like to see that. "
Weasel says "I thought you said no one knew what happened to Mara, and yet you've met her?"
Mortimer Seaton says "I would love for Mara to sign my poster, even if it is a little worse for wear. That would be lovely"
G.O. Rakius IV shrugs and says, "Never heard of him. Some two-bit conjurer of no great import, I'm sure. But Ro-Kai… that word has become a terrible curse in several devilish tongues. Roughly it translates as tremor-that-shakes-the-bowels. And this from many types of creatures which have no bowels!"
The Guard Captain gestures to a moldy jar on the shelf 'Have you seen our holy relic? Ro-Kai's jar of toenail clippings. We bought it from a guy in a really bad mind-flayer costume in Waterdeep"
Weasel gasps at the Jar. "But I thought that was left on his grave!"
The Guard Captain says "Now it's here…"
Weasel says "I don't know whether to be impressed or terribly upset."
Weasel says "I'm gonna go with terribly upset. Someone left that as an offering to him so that he would rest in peace. "
Weasel says "someone who cared about him a lot"
Weasel says "someone who gave a speech that made people cry when he died. "
Mitsurugi says "From what G.O. has been saying he isn't resting, and isn't terribly peaceful eaither."
Weasel says "He never was one to settle down"
The Guard Captain looks at Misurugi with interest (and veiled contempt)
G.O. Rakius IV says, "I don't know. I can think of nothing more restful than plowing my way through a few hells… It's like a summer vacation, really."
Mitsurugi says "Can I help you Guard Captain? You seem interested in me."
Mitsurugi says "I'm sorry but I'm not saving all my love for yoooooooooou."
Ilyena rolls 12for a Investigation skill check and gets 12.
Ilyena finds a hair in the food…
The Guard Captain says "Who is this G.O. and what has he said of Ro-Kai?"
Mortimer Seaton watches Ilyena pull hair out of her food and proceeds to spit his meal all over his plate before trying to quickly cover it up
Mitsurugi points to G.O. sitting just a few feet away. "He said Ro-Kai was tearing up the nine hells and effectively terrorizing the demons there."
Mitsurugi pushes his food a little further away from him until it's just sitting in front of Weasel
G.O. Rakius IV declares, "I am G.O. Rakius the Fourth! Time giant. Herald of Gala… wait, no that's not me. But still! How can you have heard of this pack of fannies and not the god of time?!"
The Guard Captain says "Oooh, I missed that part. Ro-Kai was my favorite Backstreet Boy"
Mortimer Seaton folds his napkin into origami shapes, trying to pass the time because of his sudden lack of hunder
Mitsurugi says "My favorite was always Orin. But I still haven't met him."
Mitsurugi says "That is if I cared about them at all of course."
Weasel Orin was the funny one.
The Guard Captain says "You are adventurers, yes?"
Ilyena perks up. "Was Orin the one who was always shooting the other members with his bow?" 
Weasel says "And the one that Mara would light on fire every other day. "
Weasel says "He got lit on fire. He accidentally shot other memebers. Really it all evened out. "
Mitsurugi says "I mean we adventure sure."
The Guard Captain says "Ah, yes! Orin shot Halla in the ass right here on our beach!"
Mitsurugi says "Why…?"
Weasel says "I'm not sure you could call us adventurers after comparing us to the Phanny Pack. "
Ilyena nods. She didn't care much for the exploits of adventuring parties, but she was keen on archers. 
G.O. Rakius IV says, "They're adventurers. I'm a conquerer. There's a difference."
The Guard Captain says "Would you care to pay for your meals and rooms by performing a service?"
G.O. Rakius IV shouts, "No, VARIS! I did conquer that one time, dammit. They didn't just all give up and go home!"
Weasel says "Depeneds on the service. We're kind of in the middle of setting the world back to its natural order. "
Mitsurugi says "I haven't received anything that could be called a meal."
Mitsurugi says "And depending on the service I could really pass on the room."
Mitsurugi says "Especially if it's here. We're really looking for a gambling river boat actually."
G.O. Rakius IV looks around, mutters something under his breath and says, "I'll accept room and food as payment for not blowing this place up."
Mitsurugi says "Did more guards just show up?"
The Guard Captain does his best to ignore Mitsurugi again and speaks to Weasel "We have a secret river into the old lair of the water cult that the Phanny Pack killed off, but it's become infested with … creatures, and we can't use it."
Mitsurugi stands up from the table and places his hand on his sword. "Are we doing this?"
G.O. Rakius IV mutters, "I mean, sure, you have a very lovely dirt farm here, but it's reaping season."
Mitsurugi says "I'd love to fight my way out of here. If that's what you're offering."
Weasel says "You mean, we could do a favor for the phanny pack???"
The Guard Captain says "We do not farm dirt, we charge tolls for not sinking boats!"
Mitsurugi says "Sounds like taking you out would benefit everyone. "
Mortimer Seaton looks around at the comotion and continues perfecting his napkin swan… its quite beautiufl.
Mitsurugi draws his sword.
The Guard Captain says "I'm sure they would appreciate you making their business more profitable"
G.O. Rakius IV offers, "Sure, but in between shaving the dust bunnies to make your coats, right?"
Weasel says "If you're so eager to kill something why don't we go kill the pests? "
Mitsurugi contemplates for a moment and sheathes his sword. "If we do this you'll hook us up with this gambling boat right?"
The Guard Captain says "I will personally praise the services of your group to the mext member of the Phanny Pack to pass through."
Weasel yells "SOLD!"
Weasel says "Let's go kill some pests!"
The Guard Captain says "The Grande Dame will be here onthe morrow, whether you help or not"
G.O. Rakius IV blinks a few times and says, "Jean-Claude?! Now there's someone worth meeting!"
Mitsurugi says "If it's between a disgusting place filled wiith horrific ugly creatures and a sour atmosphere that smells like urine, or thhat dungeon, I'll take the dungeon."
Weasel says "Wow you're just mean today, aren't ya? "
The Guard Captain says "walks to the back of the room, knocks on a few bricks, and opens a secret door revealing a staircase headed down into the gloom."
Weasel hops up an follows the captain. "Cool!"
Mitsurugi races down the steps, anything to get him out of this room.
Mitsurugi says "I'm not mean, just honest."

Session 40 - Souvenirs, novelties, party tricks

Last week the group took on a quest from Serissa, daughter of Hekaton, King of the Storm Giants.She provided you with a wooden coin with an imprint of a golden goose, which *Ilyena** recognized as coming from the region around Red Larch. Red Larch has been an important stop on the Long Road for two centuries now. Named for a distinctive stand of red larch trees that were cut down when the hamlet was founded, Red Larch became a settlement in the first place thanks to a drinkable spring that fed a sizable pond ideal for watering horses, oxen, and pack mules. An east-west trail meets the Long Road at the pond, running west to the logging community of Kheldell and east to Bargewright Inn and eventually Secomber. Another trail leads to quarries in the Sumber Hills and to ruins of stone keeps long ago left to monsters and outlaws**.
Weasel says "Alright, Ilyena, where do you suggest we start? "
Ilyena strolls along side the rest of the party, looking from building to building. "Perhaps an Inn or Tavern? Where does one go to gamble?"
Weasel says "A tavern sounds as good a place as any. I could use a drink. Plus maybe we can find Morty a barmaid girlfriend. "
G.O. Rakius IV pipes up, "Personally, I like Cania. Mephistopheles and his lieutenants always have some coin to lose and not much else to do besides fighting…"
Weasel starts to walk through town, looking for someone to ask directions.
Ilyena nods. "Lead on then, friend."
Mortimer Seaton says "Did someone say girlfriend?"
G.O. Rakius IV wanders down the street after the others, muttering to himself about nothing in particular and everything in specific all at once.
Weasel finds the tavern and has to remind herself to wait for the others before barging in for a drink. 
Mortimer Seaton says "What are we waiting for? The love of my life could be in there!"
G.O. Rakius IV claps Morty on the back and says, "That's the spirit, lad. Forget all those other loves of your various lives! The next one's bound to be the best one, for at least a little while!"
Mortimer Seaton says "I just want one who loves me back. "
G.O. Rakius IV says, "I'd settle for one who loves me side, but sure!"
Weasel says, "First rounds on me!" and flings the door to the tavern open
Garlen Harlathurl stands behind the counter, polishing glasses and singing "Love will find a way – darlin', love is gonna find a way Find its way back to you Love will find a way – so look around, open your eyes Love is gonna find a way – love is gonna, love is gonna Love is gonna, love is gonna find a way, yeah Love will find a way – love is gonna find a way back to you, yeah yeah yeah"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "And the second and third, too! You keep taking all the best treasure!"
Ilyena approaches the entrance to the Inn with the others and notices the sign. "I thought we were going to the one called Cania?" She gives G.O. a curious look. 
Mortimer Seaton 's eyes get wide as he listens to the beautiful girl sing. 
Mortimer Seaton 's eyes get wide as he listens to the beautiful man sing
Mortimer Seaton feels his heart skip a beat. 
Garlen Harlathurl says "What can I get you lot?"
Mitsurugi says "Well Morty,don't be shy, introduce yourself!"
Mortimer Seaton stutters, "I-uh… I… uh.."
G.O. Rakius IV blinks a few times and says, "I mean, we can… but I don't think the people here are going to like it when all those devils start rampaging around their gardens…"
Mitsurugi says "This one here would like your hand in marriage Ibelieve!"
Weasel says "A round on me, and Morty would at least like your number. "
Mortimer Seaton blushes
Garlen Harlathurl turns to the tap along the back wall and begins filling a pitcher. "Number? I've always liked 2. One is the lonliest number and three's a crowd"
Mortimer Seaton swoons
Ghileeda grabs the pitcher and brings it over to your table.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Always heard three was company, too… Maybe that was somewhere else…"
Weasel snorts at Morty, then turns to Ilyena. "Would you like to ask around?"
Ghileeda says "Anything to eat?"
Mitsurugi says "What's on the menu?"
Mitsurugi says "The gnome's buying, I'll take your most expensive food and booze please!"
Ilyena looks around for a likely person to approach first. "That is an excellent idea." When nothing stood out, she proceeded to the nearest table. "Hello, friends!" She grins at them brightly. 
Ghileeda says "Boiled Cabbage, Beef Stew, Pickled Sausage and corn on the cob."
Justran Daehl says "Whaddya want?"
Mitsurugi sits at a table and waits for his meal expectantly.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "I'll take six flagons of ale and a crust of bread. Oh, and a pint of fresh baby fat for Varis. He hasn't eaten anything since that time with the place."
Ghileeda says "baby fa…? huh?"
Ilyena pulls the coin out of the pocket strapped to her belt and holds it up for all to see. "I'm looking for the person who lost this coin."
G.O. Rakius IV throws his hands up in the air and says, "Fine! Cat's blood, boiling, with a pinch of spider droppings!"
Quarry Worker 2 says "Oi. I losta coin!"
Stannor Thistlehair says "Me too!"
Justran Daehl says "And me!"
Ilyena chuckles. "Well, the first one to tell me where I found it can have it."
Garlen Harlathurl says "She's not talking about your game of Tails last night!"
Stannor Thistlehair says "I think a magician pulled it outta yer pointy ear!"
Justran Daehl says "Ah, Stannor, shove it in yer ear!"
Quarry Worker 2 says "In yer rear!!"
Weasel watches Ilyena to make sure things are going okay, and starts to think maybe sending her to ask around was a bad idea. 
G.O. Rakius IV scoffs and says, "I did not! My great-great-grandmother gave her that coin!"
Weasel readies her battle axe
Quarry Worker 2 says "Oi, lassie, lemme haffa lookie at it…"
Quarry Worker 2 says "'afore these lot get outta hand and I hafta cuff 'em upside the head tae shuttem up."
Mitsurugi Steps next to Ilyena, his imposing figure doing n othing to disuade the rowdy crowd.
Mitsurugi If this is your coin come forward, if not then stand back!
Mitsurugi draws his sword and enters a battle stance.
Quarry Worker 1 says "Ah, jeez. More rowdy adventurer's . OK boys nights over. Sorry Garlen, not spendin' any more coin in yer establishment tonight." and heads out the back door along with the rest of the regulars.
Garlen Harlathurl sighs "Not again. I lose more business that way. You gonna make up for the coin, sword boy?"
Mitsurugi says "I am penniless! However the gnome…"
Garlen Harlathurl says "The regulars don't stick arouns when weapons get drawn"
Weasel joins the rest of the group. "You guys have got a lot of tact." 
Mitsurugi puts his sword away and begins wandering back outside.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "I have tact falling out of my… oh, wait, that's dandruff."
Weasel puts a blue gemstone on the bar infront of her. "Sorry for the trouble. You wouldn't be able to tell us where the coin came from, would you?" 
Mitsurugi rolls 14for a Insight skill check and gets 20.
Ilyena sighs. "Good sir, if you can help us find out whose coin this is, I'll give it to you in recompense."
Weasel says "wait, wait, wait. We might need it later. "
Weasel says "I'll give you another gem instead. Hows that?"
Mitsurugi heads across the street to another inn, intent on getting answers.
Garlen Harlathurl says "looks carefully. "That's not even a coin. It's a gambling chip""
Mitsurugi rolls 7for a Stealth skill check and gets 12.
Mitsurugi tries to enter the inn quietly without drawing any attention.
Quarry Worker 2 rolls 18for a Perception skill check and gets 18.
Weasel says "from where?"
Quarry Worker 2 says "Oi, he's followin us!"
Mitsurugi says "I just want some answers, that's all."
Mitsurugi says "Look, I won't even draw my sword."
G.O. Rakius IV wanders out into the street after Mitsurugi, because this place just doesn't have good libations for quasi-real familiars.
Garlen Harlathurl says "Couldn't tell ya. If it's regarding gabling though, y'all probably want to talk to Vallivoe down the south end of town. He's been known to have a bit of a problem with lady luck…"
Weasel places another blue gem on the counter in front of her, and nods. "Appreciate it." 
Quarry Worker 2 says "42. It's all the answers i got"
Mitsurugi rolls 19for a Insight skill check and gets 25.
G.O. Rakius IV struts into the next building like he owns the place and says, "Anyone got some cat's blood?" before noticing the fellows from the other place that didn't have cat's blood and asks, "Is this a town of twins or something?"
Garlen Harlathurl sccops up the gems and they disappear faster than a magic trick. "Appreciate it! Anything else I can do for you?"
Weasel says "No thanks. I think we've caused enough trouble as it is. "
Mitsurugi says "Oh you are a very funny man. I knew a funny man once. His head didn't stay attached to his neck for very long."
Weasel leaves the tavern
Mitsurugi says "Now tell me. Where did that wooden coin come from?"
Ilyena follows the others out of the tavern, professing her thanks to the innkeep on her way. 
Quarry Worker 2 says "So you're a serial killer who goes after comedians? "
G.O. Rakius IV whispers, "If you want me to, I'll light this whole place on fire and we can let Kossuth sort out the rest."
Mitsurugi says "Oh! No that wasn't what I was implying. He had a very unfortunate cabbage cart accident."
Kaylessa Irkell says "Hey there! No messin around in my establishment!"
Quarry Worker 1 says "Oh. ha…haha…..HAHAHAHA! Good 'un!"
Mitsurugi says "But give me the information I need and perhaps you won't be involved in a similar accident."
Quarry Worker 1 says "erp"
Quarry Worker 2 says "That's a gambling chip, not a coin"
Mitsurugi says "Is that all you know?"
Quarry Worker 1 says "well I know mining pretty good, but that's all I know about the chip."
Ilyena looks at Weasel. "Should we try this Villavoe?" 
Weasel says "Sure, should we wait for the boys to be done or just leave them in whatever trouble they're bound to get into?"
Mitsurugi nods at the Quarry worker. "And where is the a gambling hall near here?"
Weasel says "I'm more than comfortable leaving them. They can take care of themselves. "
Quarry Worker 2 says "Do we look like we have the extra coin to spend on gambling? I haven't seen a gambling hall since we left Waterdeep."
Ilyena shrugs casually. "They'll catch us up eventually. If they were concerned about being separated they would have stayed with us."
Mitsurugi rolls 7for a Insight skill check and gets 13.
Mitsurugi says "Madam bartender! Are you aware of anywhere nearby I could find a wooden gambling chip?"
Weasel says "now which one of these houses do you think Villaoe is in?"
Kaylessa Irkell says "Try Vallivoe's Sundries at the south end of town. He sells lot's of stuff."
Mitsurugi nods to the barmaid. "Alright wizard, we make way for Vallivoe."
Ilyena looks from house to house. "I'm not sure. We could ask…" She starts for the nearest building with no obvious markings. 
G.O. Rakius IV shrugs and says, "Is that some kind of ham?" but follows the swordsman anyway.
Weasel see's the sign that says Vallivoe's Sundries, and feels dumb for asking. 
Weasel says "Hello?"
Ilyena is about to knock when she sees Weasel run off. "Wait!"
Mitsurugi sees the two girls further down the street and yells, "We need to find Vallivoes Sundries!"
Weasel says "Beat ya to it. "
Ilyena gesticulates at both Mitsurugi and at the sign on the building to let him know they found it. 
Mitsurugi says "To what? You would be lost if not for my genius investigative skills."
Mitsurugi says "Ah good work assistant Ilyena!"
Weasel says "right, it had nothing to do with me bribing the bar tender. "
Aside from the bewildering profusion of doors, barrels, rotting old furniture, and tools leaning against its outside walls, this building looks like a private home. A small, faded sign on the front door reads "Vallivoe's Sundries."
Weasel says "speaking of the bartender. Where is Morty? "
G.O. Rakius IV asks, "You paid someone to point down the street? All we had to do was look scary and talk about headless guys and fire."
Weasel knocks
Endrith Vallivoe says "Enter!"
Mitsurugi walks through the doors and starts poking around when someone tells him to enter.
Rooms are crammed to the rafters with new wares and used items of all sorts. Along the north wall is a display of Phanny Pack merchandise.
Mitsurugi says "Oh? Enter what? Is there a portal in here?"
Weasel walks into the house, if you can call it that and starts to go through the stuff. She has to hide her excitement at all the phanny pack merch. 
G.O. Rakius IV follows suit, and is much less subtle about poking around at stuff. "Is any of this junk magical? I don't think it is… What kind of sundries dealer doesn't have a spare Fork of Horripilation laying around? Or even a jar of beetle souls?"
Mitsurugi says "Say there good Vallivoe, would you happen to know where I could find… A WOODEN GAMBLING CHIP!?!?"
Mitsurugi is certain he's found the culprit. But isn't quite certain what the crime is.
Endrith Vallivoe says "I keep the beetle souls in the back but I sold my last Fork of Horripilation yesterday."
Endrith Vallivoe says "I have a set of chips around here somewhere" and ducks behind the counter and starts digging through piles
Mitsurugi says "Assistant Ilyena! Bring in the evidence!"
Ilyena knocks on the counter. "You misunderstand. We have a gambling coin and are looking for its source."
Endrith Vallivoe stands and places a set of gambling chips on the counter. "Only missing two, so I'll give 'em to you for 6 copper!"
Endrith Vallivoe says "Oh. You're not buying?"
Ilyena shakes her head. "Not gambling chips, but I saw a potion cozy on the shelf over there I'm undecided about."
Endrith Vallivoe watched Weasel eye the Phanny Pack display with the eye of a born merchant "We're having a sale on Phanny Pack Paraphenalia this week, miss"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Oh! A man of great taste, I see! How much for the beetle souls? And do you have a cask of baby fat lying around? Varis is really hungry, and he gets really annoying when he's hungry. Like, the last time he was this hungry this girl in Samarghol had to… well, nevermind. Let's just say it was pretty gross, and she's going to be that shade of magenta for a while.."
Weasel eeps
Endrith Vallivoe sighs "baby WHAT? You'll have to be more specific…"
Mitsurugi says "Who did you sell the other gambling chips to?"
Mitsurugi looks remarkably serious for a man who isn't entirely sure where he is.
Endrith Vallivoe looks over at Ilyena "You want to start selling gambling chips? Not much market in it, I can tell ya. I took this set im payment for…. a dented shovel, almost 2 years ago."
Endrith Vallivoe opens the set and shows off the plain black chips.
G.O. Rakius IV peers in the box and says, "You paid a perfectly good shovel for a box of worthless chips?"
Weasel ignores everything going on with the chips, and starts to pile all of the phanny pack merch into her arms. 
Endrith Vallivoe grabs a tiny bottle from below the counter. Written in tiny, neat script it says "Beetle Souls: 1 SP each. 5 Minimum"
Weasel takes Phanny Pack Poster.
Weasel takes Phanny Pack Perfume.
Weasel takes Phanny Pack Drink Cozy.
Endrith Vallivoe says "Wel it was pretty seriously dented"
Weasel takes Phanny Pack Keychain.
Weasel takes Phanny Pack Shot Glass.
Ilyena shakes her head again. "I'm not looking to sell it. I want to find the person who lost it."
Mitsurugi is very confused and walk outside.
Endrith Vallivoe watches weasel collect the Phanny Pack merchandise into her arms and raises an eyebrow. "Ah, a fan? Collector?"
Mitsurugi draws his sword and begins practising in front of the shop.
G.O. Rakius IV offers, "Well, I don't have any money because this gnome I know keeps bogarting all the loot… but I have a pretty big helmet with a dent in it. By your standards, that's gotta be worth the whole bottle, right?"
Weasel says "I dabble. "
Weasel says "I thought the name Red Larch sounded familiar. They've been here before, haven't they? "
Endrith Vallivoe says "Nope, sorry. Glut of dented helmets recently. Let me take a look at the chip. I've been know to peruse the tables from time to time…"
Ilyena proffers the gambling coin to the salesman. 
Endrith Vallivoe says "The Phanny Pack? Yes, right here in this store. They bought a book from me!"
Endrith Vallivoe takes the coin and turns it over in his hands. "Ah yes. The Golden Goose Casino"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Oho! A gambling man! Well, it just so happens I'm a bit of a fan of cards myself…" and produces a pack of cards from one of his pockets. Shuffling it awkwardly, he says, "I'll tell ya what. We can play a game for it. You say how many you're going to draw, say anywhere from one to six, do so, and then I'll take a turn. Winner gets the beetle souls, AND the giant helm."
Ilyena mutters under her breath, "That explains the goose…"
Endrith Vallivoe says "Oooh. A Deck of Many Things? Now that's valuable. Want to sell it?"
Endrith Vallivoe says "pulls out a large red hair bow. "I'll trade it for this replica bow just like the one I sold Mara""
Weasel goes to grab for it, but realizes the deck is not hers to trade. 
Endrith Vallivoe winks at Weasel
G.O. Rakius IV frowns and tucks the cards back in his pocket, "Doesn't really match my outfit, sorry. Maybe if you had something a little more… dangerously-magical lying around."
Weasel knows better than to mess with the deck of many things, and looks down dejectedly. 
Endrith Vallivoe says "I have a 6-pack of magical More-Clay mines"
Endrith Vallivoe says "they're magic AND dangerous"
G.O. Rakius IV nods and says, "That's pretty good, but I failed minelaying at the academy."
Endrith Vallivoe says "anything in particular you're looking for? Or just generically dangerous?"
Weasel says "So the Golden goose casino. Can you tell us where that is please "
Endrith Vallivoe says "nope"
Weasel says "excuse me? "
Endrith Vallivoe giggles. "But I can tell you how to find it…"
Weasel says "That would be great. "
Endrith Vallivoe says "It's on a riverboat, The Grand Dame, that cruises up and down the Dessarin River, usually between Bargewright Inn and Yartar."
Mitsurugi comes barging in to the shop, "Did you say the Grand Dame?"
Weasel says "And how do we get in? "
Endrith Vallivoe says "Yes. Know of it?"
Mitsurugi looks off into the distance as if remembering a very long and somber backstory that invloves the river boat.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Oh, my mind swirls with all sorts of ideas, but this sort of thing… it's a rare find, you know? So much potential for riches and mayhem. I'd be hard pressed to be rid of it for anything less wondrous, you know?"
Endrith Vallivoe says "It stops at all the towns along the river. If you've got money to lose, they'll let you in."
Endrith Vallivoe says "Hmmm. I'm a little shor on wondrous items at the moment."
Endrith Vallivoe says "You can hit the river if you head east from here…"
Mitsurugi dashes towards the river.
Weasel says "West it is. "
Endrith Vallivoe says "about 2 days walk."
Endrith Vallivoe says "Um, miss? Gonna pay for the Phanny Pack stuff?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Shame, that. I suppose my deck of mischief and profit and I will have to look elsewhere for magical enhancement of my personage. Good day, collector of oddities, and if you happen to find something resembling a rapier that shoots fireballs, or a key that stops time, do look me up!"
Endrith Vallivoe says "Oh a time key
!!"
Endrith Vallivoe says "Don't have one of those either…"
Weasel says "Anywhere else we need to go while we're here? "
Weasel says "Oh! Vallivoe, have you had any problem with giants recently? "
Endrith Vallivoe says "Giants? Not here… Goldenfields had a problem a couple of months ago, but some adventurers helped out."
Weasel says "So the giants aren't actually a problem? "
G.O. Rakius IV says, "I've seen enough of this backwater, podunk village of trinket sellers and grumpy drunks. Unless there's something here that needs exploding, or someone willing to give up a king's bounty in magical gear for a promise and a smile, I think we're good."
Endrith Vallivoe says "Not in Red Larch."
Weasel says "Hmm… interesting. "
Weasel says "Well, off to the rest of our quest. "
Weasel says "Let's grab Morty and be off. "
Zeldo says "Yo"
Ilyena looks back toward the crossroads. "Eastward, he said?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Oh, hey, the twinkly one and the shady bard are still here. Fancy that. I thought we left those guys behind ages ago…" 
Weasel says "To the east! Is everyone ready? "
G.O. Rakius IV shouts, "Not in the least, but lets do it anyway! To gambling, and murder, and a new boat!"
Weasel says "I have always wanted a boat. "
**After walking for a day and a half, you spot a keep along a river. *

Session 39 - The cake is a lie

Last week, the group explored the Maelstrom a bit, split the party, killed a few giant crabs, and talked with Serissa, who is currently running the show.
Serissa says "Now that you know my tale, will you help discover what has become of my parents?"
Ilyena curses under her breath. Well, cursing for her is probably something along the lines of 'Gosh darn it,' but it was muttered very emphatically. "Your Highness, those are friends of ours. We did not know where we were when we came here and they are simply looking for a way out." In the hopes that it will keep G.O. quiet for a change, she rushes on. "We will gladly help you find your parents so that all our peoples may be at peace again."
Serissa says "looks from Iymrith to Ilyena? Friends of yours? That killed my mother?"
Iymrith says "See, they are admitting to it!"
Ilyena starts to take a step forward, shaking her head and her hands emphatically. "In the water, your Highness. We had nothing to do with the murder of your mother. Our friends are in the waters looking for a way out."
Iymrith says "There are OTHER random adventurers in the Maelstrom? Guards, find them and bring them here!"
Serissa says "Now hold on Iymrith, no need to be hasty. Guards, please find the other adventurers and escort them here, nicely."
G.O. Rakius IV says, "I don't know what she's talking about. We don't have friends, and I certainly wouldn't kill my thrice-great grandparents, unless doing so made my birth possible…"
Serissa look back at Ilyena "Does he ever make sense?"
The guards leave and start spreading the word to scour the Maelstrom for other intruders.
Ilyena is about to tell the Princess that of course he does, at least occasionally, then realizes she can't actually think of an example. "I'm sure under the right circumstances.." she demurs. 
Serissa walks around the pool in the center of the room, towards Ilyena and holds out the wooden coin to her.
G.O. Rakius IV scoffs, "If you could see things the way I see them, it'd all make perfect sense."
Serissa drops Wooden Coin.
Ilyena takes Wooden Coin.
Serissa says "I'm sure things look different from down there"
Serissa says "This coin is the only clue we have, but since the troubles, my investigators are having trouble getting little people to talk to them. Perhaps you will have more luck"
Ilyena takes the coin and turns it over in her hand, looking at it carefully. "Thank you for your trust in us, Your Highness. I hope we can resolve this quickly. Is there anything else you can tell us?"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "From out here, they all look different. You, for instance, look like a wobbly sort of filament thingy with a bit of lightning around the edges… but I don't suppose you're well versed in twenty-six dimensional hyper-scrying techniques, eh? No worries, let's just say it's all realllllly shiny math from the future!"
G.O. Rakius IV rolls 8for a History skill check and gets 15.
Ilyena rolls 17for a History skill check and gets 17.
Serissa says "Any chance you can go back in time to investigate my mother's murder?"
G.O. Rakius IV perks up and says, "Obviously! If I could remember where I put my lab, we'd be doing all sorts of awesome traveling… as is, I think the Time Vault will work. Can you get me there? And maybe give me the key to the place?"
Serissa says "time vault? I know of no such thing"
The guards return, ushering Mortimer and Mitsurugi into the hall.
Mortimer Seaton huffs and puffs about being pulled away from his only reasonable underwater battle, but decides to save the story for another time, maybe in a less intimidating situation.
G.O. Rakius IV sighs and says, "It's a place outside of time that holds all of time inside of it. Clearly. I bet if you lent me the use of that pretty rod around your neck I could find it!"
Serissa says "Haha. Nice try, but no."
Ilyena turns the coin over a few more times thoughtfully before depositing it in her pocket. 
Mortimer Seaton looks around, curious about where Weasel might be. He thinks about asking the others about her but wouldnt want to disrupt their banter.
Serissa sees the guards return "Ah, you found them"
Serissa says "Did they get into any trouble?"
Storm Giant Guard 1 says "They killed one of the hulking crabs"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Shame, that. Oh, hey, it's Morty and whatshisname! Morty, my boy! This is princess Serissa. If you married her… you could be a prince of the giants!"
G.O. Rakius IV adds, "And winkwinknudgenudge my great-great-grandpa"
Mortimer Seaton says "I apologize for killing your crab, ma'am. I really just got excited about the swirly pool you have down there. I really enjoy swimming and all."
Serissa sighs. "Nym will be distraught. Those were her pets."
Mortimer Seaton says "Oh! Really… well, if you are looking for an acquantance, or more than that, I would be happy to take you out for dinner sometime."
Ilyena says "actually groans out loud at G.O. "Would you give that up? You're not making that happen.""
G.O. Rakius IV whispers to Ilyena, "I don't have to MAKE it happen, it already did!"
Mortimer Seaton says "I will personally apologize to Nym. but what do you say to my offer? Maybe?"
Mortimer Seaton says "I will do anything."
Serissa looks Mortimer up and down, apprasingly. "I'm afraid he's not only NOT my type, I'm required by law to marry a storm giant"
Mortimer Seaton says "Not a water genasi? Are you sure?"
Mortimer Seaton says "This could be a Romeo and Juilet kind of love, I believe it."
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Fine. Polymorph is a thing. He'd be a storm giant long enough for the wedding, at least!"
Serissa says "I tell you what, find my father and I'll have dinner with you. No promises after that, though."
Mortimer Seaton says "Wonderful, its a date then."
Serissa winks at Mortimer
Mortimer Seaton blushes
A magical force field suddenly appears on the throne, and *Weasel** slowly materializes within it, paralyzed.
*
Weasel** can't help herself, when she sees the throne open and ready. She has a whole monologue planned for when she became visible again, but as she clambers into the seat, and perches on the edge she is suddenly paralized, unable to say a thing, and all eyes are on her. 
Serissa says "What the…? Another friend of yours?"
Mortimer Seaton says "Weasel! My dear! How are you??!"
Weasel for once, would love to speak to Morty, but can't
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Nope. Never seen that gnome in my life. No idea what she's doing there. Must be a mass hallucination brought on by meeting my own great-great grandma."
Serissa walks back over to the throne and touches it with the scepter. The force field vanishes, but Weasel remains paralyzed. "The paralysis will wear off in a minute or two."
Weasel rolls 18for a Reflex save and gets 21.
Serissa rolls 14for a Reflex save and gets 16.
Weasel rolls 17for a Reflex save and gets 20.
Serissa rolls 8for a Reflex save and gets 10.
Serissa carries Weasel over to Ilyena and places the gnome at her feet, still curled in a sitting position.
Ilyena sighs. "Yes. She is given to mischief, but means no harm. She probably the most useful of our group, if I am completely honest."
Serissa says "are you?"
Serissa says "completely honest, that is?"
Weasel finally slumps a little once the paralysis wears off. "We'll that plan backfired. I just wanted to make a grand entrance." She looks up at Ilyena. "Awww thanks. That means a lot."
Ilyena smiles as she responds. "I'm told I'm more honest than I should be. People find it annoying."
G.O. Rakius IV scoffs, "No, she only tells lies. Just like me."
Serissa says "I feel that was probably a half-truth…"
Weasel says "On another note, I'm totally down for a quest!"
Mortimer Seaton says "What? Ilyena never lies. That's really just you. Kind of like how you say I am going to get a girlfriend, maybe even a wife some day."
Serissa says "You are rather desperate, aren't you?"
Serissa says "A word of advice, for our date should it happen: relax a bit."
Weasel says "So, what's this quest? "
Mortimer Seaton says "You know, it wasnt desperation until he told me about a prophecy that claimed that I would marry someone great and have very powerful children. Before all that, I was in a position much like yours. I was also searching for my father. See, he left me when I was quite small. Which is why I would love to assist in finding your father. Date or not (though I'd prefer the date because you are quite beautiful), I simply want to help your cause."
Serissa blushes, turning slightly purple.
G.O. Rakius IV says, "True love. Obviously. Who knows these things like the god of Time? Amiright?"
Iymrith glares at you
Mortimer Seaton smiles kindly in her direction, considering blowing her a kiss but hesitating, not wanting to hurt his case.
Iymrith glares at y'all
Serissa says "Can I help you on your way? Oh, soeaking of, how DID you get here?"
Weasel says "I may have possibly blew on a conch that I probably shouldn't have blown on…"
Mortimer Seaton says "Any directions would be quite useful, but to be perfectly honest, I have no clue how we got here. We were escaping a battle on our airship when suddenly we awoke in your downstairs entryway."
G.O. Rakius IV looks to Serissa and says, "See, he's blue, you're blue… it's a match made in at least on of the heavens, and probably five of the hells… but let's get back to it, eh? If we're to help find thrice-great grandpa and the people who killed thrice-great grandma, we're gonna need some stuff. Got any shiny magical weapons and armor we could use? Maybe a holocaust cloak or two? I'd settle for an ioun stone, myself, but I'm not as picky as these guys."
Mortimer Seaton says "Well, I do have this Sword I acquired while I was playing with the crabs downstairs…"
Serissa says "I am merely asking you to do some investigation, not save the world. I am willing to pay you a standard daily rate plus expenses. And you can keep the sword."
Mortimer Seaton says "Thank you thank you"
Weasel says "Sorry, saving the world is part of the package deal. "
Serissa says "That's your choice. I'm not paying for it."
Weasel says "That part comes free of charge. An added bonus. "
G.O. Rakius IV frowns and says, "My standard rate IS magical items, and my daily expenses are more magical items! What use does a future-giant wizard have with the temporally-questionable value of money in any given timeline?!"
Weasel says "I'm going to have to back G.O. up on this one. Magic items are more useful to us than money. "
Serissa says "If there can be no arrangement, then we are at an impasse."
G.O. Rakius IV keeps muttering to himself, "I mean, there's inflation, deflation, quadro-invertoflation, elemental destablization… so many factors…"
Ilyena says "Your Highness, I advise against taking his words seriously. We will be happy to help. "
Serissa says "Well, that was nicely said. And since you may find trouble on your investigations, I guess I should supply something…"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Find trouble? My dearest most greatest grandmother… we are MADE of trouble."
Serissa reaches into a bag that she pulls from below the throne and pulls out a Necklace of Prayer Beads, handing it to G.O.
Serissa then pulls out some scale armor, handing it to Ilyena
Serissa reaches in again and gives a Wand of Binding to Weasel
Weasel flips the wand around in her hand a couple times. "This'll definitely come in hand." 
Serissa reaches in a last time and hands a Belt of Dwarvenkind to Mitsurugi.
Serissa says "I know it's a bit random, but my subjects would riot if I handed you items from our armory."
G.O. Rakius IV looks at the shiny rocks on a chain in his hand and says, "Uh… thanks? I suppose? I mean, uhh… yeah, thanks, grandma! Great gift! Just like all those other yearly-winter-holiday-gifts, it's the best!"
Serissa says "Next year I'll send you a card with $5"
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Next year, I might just be in a world where I can use that!"
Mortimer Seaton looks around, wondering if he earned anything
Serissa says "Now, since you used a conch to get here, I'm guessing that you'll need a ride?"
Weasel says "Yeah. That would be great… where is it that we're going exactly? I missed that bit while planning my grand entrance. "
Serissa says "Wherever you wish. Do you have a destination in mind? I could return you to your … ship?"
Weasel says "Where do you suggest we start looking for your father? "
G.O. Rakius IV pipes up, "The Time Vault! Transport us there! We can find anything from there! Maybe even other worlds than these!"
Serissa says "You might want to start looking on the island where we found the coin, and my mother's body."
Ilyena lets the others babble for a moment or two, then says, "If you could transport us to our ship and provide us details of where to find this island, we would be most grateful."
Serissa says "It is the easternmost island of the Whale Bones."
Serissa says "Follow me…"
Serissa turns and leaves to the south, behind the thrones. "Please don't touch anything…"
Weasel whispers "I've learned my lesson."
G.O. Rakius IV pointedly does not touch the throne but mutters, "Soon, my love… Soon…" as he passes it.
Serissa says "This is my meditation cavern. From within I can teleport you wherever you want."
Serissa turns left and enters a cave
This naturally formed cave has bioluminescent lichen, coral, snails, and starfish clinging to its damp walls.
Ilyena stares, in awe. "This is lovely."
Serissa tears up a tiny bit. "My mother decorated it.."
G.O. Rakius IV asks, "Anywhere? Do I have to know where? Because I feel like where I want to go and where everyone else wants to go are not the same thing, but that I probably have a better chance of surviving there if I have a few meat shields…"
Ilyena pats the Princess consolingly. "We will find out what happened to her."
Serissa says "Just picture the place you want to go firmly in your mind's eye and on the coiunt of 5…"
Serissa says "4…3…"
G.O. Rakius IV adds, "Also, teleportation! I totally got that from you! That's how I found these idiots in the first place!"
Serissa says "2…1…"
Serissa flicks a finger and you all feel a gut-wrenching, well wrenching in your gut.
You all find yourself back on the deck of your airship, adrift out at sea.
G.O. Rakius IV looks around and shouts, "Dammit, Varis! I could have owned all of Time if you hadn't whispered 'airship' at the last second!" He then goes about sulking over all the things he could have done with that wish-fulfillment teleportation just now…
Weasel says "Ilyena, what was she saying about some coin? "
Ilyena takes a moment to reorient herself before she answers. "Her father found a coin when he was investigating." She pulls it out of her pocket and holds it up. "It's a gambler's coin, so I'm thinking someone was hired to murder her mother.Or at least kidnap her."" She pauses, visibly uncomfortable with continuing. " I know the area these coins come from, but not the specfic place."
Weasel says "I guess we know where we're going then. Point me in the right direction, and I can get us there. "
G.O. Rakius IV mutters, "Past the second star on the right and straight on til dawn…"
Weasel says "unless you've got a pouch full of pixi dust, and some happy memories you'd like to share, I think I'll stick a little closer to the ground. "
Ilyena shrugs. "We can either go to the island where her mother disappeared and investigate for ourselves, or head to the Dessarin Valley and look for the source of the coin."
Weasel says "Did she give you any indication of which would be a better lead? "
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Funny you should say that… I probably DO have some ground pixie around here somewhere…"
Ilyena shakes her head. "As far as I am aware, she does not know where the coin comes from, only where it was found."
Weasel says "I think if the island where her mother disapeared has already been investigated, then perhaps investigating the coin is going to get us to her father quicker. "
G.O. Rakius IV says, "I don't care where we go, but we should probably go there soon. I'm not getting any older, you know!"
Weasel says "To the valley it is"
Mitsurugi rests.
Nigh Quill rests.
Weasel rests.
Zeldo rests.
G.O. Rakius IV rests.
Ilyena rests.
Mortimer Seaton rests.
Selected Creature(s) have rested.
GM [DM] heals Mitsurugi, Nigh Quill, Weasel, Zeldo, G.O. Rakius IV, Ilyena, Mortimer Seaton to maximum.
After about 5 days of travel, you park your airship north of Red Larch and walk in. *
Weasel walks to the front of the group and whispers to Ilyena. "I think this is where the famous phanny pack got their start! Maybe they'll have news."
G.O. Rakius IV says, "Ah, Red Larch… I remember a time in Red Larch with a bugbear, two yuant-ti, and a pirate… oh wait, that wasn't here. Nevermind. I don't know the first thing about this place. Does it have good cake?"
