As mentioned, we need the intel from our dragon friend, before we can make further plans. We sure as hell won't start a sortie now and beside the ongoing work there is not much else to do, or am I missing something?

Creamor waited a second before he answered:
"There is no  betrayal. The people of Talingarde chose to cancel the social contract of not killing each other between me and them. This work now is a necessity. The people of Talingarde have become complacent, a mono culture of Mitra lovers. Some call our new Lord evil, but I tell you: There is no such thing as good and evil. There is only knowledge, survival and evolution. Anyone who tells you, you have to die and accept this willingly, because you sought the wrong form of knowledge, is clearly wrong.

I was presented with the option of burning at the stake or asking Asmodeus for his favor. I choose the only moral option: I choose to survive. Now I work to reestablish an environment of strive and competition so that Talingarde will once again be a place of progress, a place of study and a place where the best are no longer bound by the whims of the weak and mediocre."


He took a deep breath after this and returned the piercing glare of Sakkarot:
"But tell me, how did you come into the service of Asmodeus or should I say the service of the Cardinal?"

Thanos heard the arrows impacting at the tower, where Cenirith prepared his missiles of light. A stifled cry made him aware that his comrade had been hurt. Therefore he abandoned his patrol and made his way carefully to the tower. When he reached the elf, he tossed him a bandage:
"Don't bleed out already. Your task on this mortal coil is not done yet."

I think you are mistaken. Touch of light has personal. Thanos can give you a bandage against bleed.

"As you say, Mylady." Creamor slightly bowed his head and started to grin in the direction of the bugbears, showing again a disconcerting number of teeth...

Creamor had left his crate as soon as the bugbear camp had been announced. Now he watched with equal parts excitement and apprehension, as the boat got nearer and nearer to the pier. To his comrades he said:
"It seems there is a welcome committee present. We probably should greet them with a show of force to discourage them from taking any liberties with us or our cargo.
A few choice incantations should put the fear of our lord into them."

A question about ghosts:

Incorporeal characters can only be harmed by force effects or other non-physical attacks.

1. Is this a one-way street, or has an incorporeal character a similar restriction with his own attacks?
2. What would you count as non-physical attacks? Fire? Sonic? Divine? Electrical? Explosive?

Thanos moved with slow, measured paces along the rampart. It didn't make sense. The orcs had not attacked or showed any more displays of strength. He was no expert on their ways, but he knew that much. He wasn't worried though, just curious. While he kept an eye towards the darkening world outside the stronghold he recited his orders prayer:
"Death is the master
for us lovers of life
wreaking havoc and disaster
dropping blood from the knife

Blood sweeter than wine
chasing the prey with lust
we are hunters hunted by time
as it will, as it was, as it must

There's always one faster
one stronger to stay
to defy our master
as always was mother earths way

We'll not be spurning his gift
When the master comes for us
at least we have lived
we say, while we die as we must"

As mentioned, Creamor sides with Drin on this.

I meant the intimidation towards the freeholders, so they will sacrifice their orchard  Wink

True. The messenger would have to ride at night and use a bullseye lantern to blind any sentries that get into his way. (Light-Sensitive is one of our greatest assets fighting orcs)

It should be an interesting dialog between the druid and Durok:
"What do you want, orc?"
"Orcs are attacking the freehold, we need your help."
"Why should I attack the freehold?"
"No, you should attack the orcs."
"Ok." *scorchingray*

It's actually a bit overwhelming.
Ingame I'd expect the orcs to attack in full force any second now after we treated their ambassador so rudely.

If the orcs don't show up that soon, I'd order our priorities like this:

1. Measures to fight climbers and siege weapons (Ammunition at the top, reinforcing the doors and improving cover for those up on the wall) as well as anti fire measures
2. Wait for Zuuls scouting. Without more info on our enemy we won't get anywhere. If there is a free road for a rider to get away, I'd send him first to the druid (magic/divine fire power), second to the south to inform authorities.
3. Improving weapons and armor
4. Tend to animals and provisions + waste disposal (a good measure to slick down the way before the gates)


If no one objects, that's how Thanos will instruct the freeholders.

In game I still wait for a reply to Thanos' intimidation attempt.

Creamor whispered to Drin: "Well done. Losing inventory would be very bad. We mustn't forget, that we have to torch this ship when we arrive at our final destination - so no more ivory than we can carry comfortably."

Thanos will take second watch.

I was also thinking: We should equip the children with slings. They have a good reach and can be mass produced within a day, giving us some much needed long range artillery. Better yet, we produce them Orc made, so they will do damage weather they hit or miss against standard characters. A continued barrage could clear out the orchard.
That would probably be a better investment than a few points of DR through repaired armor.

Brand Kratys can repair the unusable armor at the rate of 1 suit / 2 hours. While doing this, he can't engage in any other task. If he gets help from another PC with Craft (Leatherworking or Metalcrafting), the rate of repair doubles.

Slings have a 5D complexity, so there's only so many you'll likely be able to make. But perhaps the noncombatants can do this -- Three Amigos Style.
You only have 1 orc who could produce slings

Actually everyone with crafting could improvise one per fullround action, even with the orc made quality (which I don't think is limited to orc craftsmen).

Creamor hissed in frustration. Neither could he make out what that horn was, nor how it could benefit them. Well, there was nothing but to trust Drin's and Lars' expertise. After all, he had planed on using the mithril to craft some armor for himself.
