Finally recovering, the trapdoor is pressed open and a guard tries to push his way through to your floor, Aiden is however ready and waiting forcing him back down the stairs. Aiden smiles as he sees his companion below scramble out of the way of the falling guardsman.

Ambush is mostly irrelevant, combat effectively started when they took poison, however they spend 2 rounds grabbing gear, and recovering from chaos, if anyone wants to do anything in those 2 rounds then feel free.

Well we've no duplicate 1st choices, apart from possibly Brand, who hasn't posted. If everyone takes their 1st choice and leaves Brand with the regeneration stone? (who'd have thought that would be last to pick).

By that logic, a standard attack isn't that great because it's only likely to take some vitality away and not do anything permanent, or Taunt's not that great because they just have to spend a 1/2 action to attack you.
Pretty much every action (Well bar some of the special ones granted by feats or tricks) is fairly lackluster taken by themselves in a vacuum. Almost every action in the game requires some thought about when to use it. Of course Disarming shouldn't be your default action, but it doesn't need to be, it's useful at times when it's useful.

If we're giving preference order then I'll go with
1. Bag of Holding
2. Compass
3. Tiny Shelter
4. Stone of TOngues
5. Short Sword
6. Necklace

Signey will defer to more experienced travellers though (though without looking at sheets, she's almost certainly the best crafter, though her Medicine and lockpicking could do with some polish)

Since he's never actually given the rest of you a name, it's mostly academic anyway.

Done, Another Keeper, +1 Int, Skill Mastery & unarmed proficiency (I always pick up unarmed eventually, it feels weird without it)

"Well, I'm not sure I was any help there, but it could have been worse."
Signey mumbles to herself for a moment, before remembering she's not alone and quiets down and tucks into some food.

Sorry about the delay, been a bit under the weather lately.

Regarding contacts I'm inclined to be flexible up until the point where they seem like they're being abused. So provided you have an hour and a space to setup some obviously infernal summoning circles and other ritual trappings you can call him.

Also it's a contact not a follower/PL, so it generally only helps you if it's in its interest and will usually flee rather than fight.

Janus!Servant returns to the rest of the group waiting outside, listening at the entry she soon hears the commotion of the table upending and vomiting in the game room, followed by the sound of them
It sounds like some of them are coming to you, preparations?

Sorry, real life getting in the way, I'll crash you forward a bit later today.

Fighting in water is not Signey's forte (fighting at all isn't actually - she'd rather be sat with a book, or a relic to study), she moves near the edge of the water and draws her dagger. Maybe if it surfaces she might be able to hit it with a throw.

Hmmm, for some reason I'd assumed there was another door when I looked through before...
To confirm, you have to go into 3b, up to 3d then across to get down to 3c.
Also of note when you go around the front 7 is an animal pen containing several mean looking dogs.

Can I have a quick note as to where you'll all be when Janus heads across.

Janus is headling over.
Drin is staying the wizards tower.

Anyone moving across the courtyard will need either a disguise check or stealth check to look the part or sneak across (DC 12) a team check using lowest skill will suffice if you're all moving together.


Regarding Ritual Weapons, for the purposes of this setting/campaign and the more limited options for alignmnets, I'm inclined to be flexible regarding Mitra and Asmodeus. I'm going to ponder a little bit more but I think I'll do one or both of the following:
a) Separate both religions into loose "orders" (i.e. Asmodean Martial, Asmodean Infiltrator, Asmodean Devoted) each effectively being an offshoot of the main religion?
b) Allow an upgrade to weapons "Icon" which allows a weapon to be used as a ritual weapon, at the cost of being obviously tied to the religion (a potentially significant cost in the setting), it'll probably

Trying to maintain a small degree of dignity after being dragged across the room by Killishandra but not entirely sure what Dolmen's going to do, or what she should be doing, Signey scampers to take cover beneath the mighty granite form.
