I'll probably grab consecrate in the not so distant future (when Creamor's wisdom rises), but if you need it sooner, I can grab it on my next level up (I'd probably have to retrain Infernal to Alignment: Asmodeus)

I appreciate it; however, thematically, Lars will need to pick up that ability at some point. Being an Asmodean priest and all.

ludo: without access to the Consecrate spell, you'll have to do it the old-fashioned way, preferably with an altar or symbol of Asmodeus present but certainly a sacrifice of something valuable to Asmodeus. In this case, the priest or the Archon would, ironically, do nicely.
Ironically, that makes sense. Any chance Lars would know if the Archon can leave the church?

@ Krensky

Take whatever time you need to heal. A back injury is nothing you want to rush, speaking from experience.

Mages ...  As part of the whisper invocation, Lars says, "Very well.  As we are bound together, I will rely on the Knot to keep me alive and serving our prince on this side of mortality."

"Uhm... I've ridden on horses from time to time, how much worse could a giant flying owl be?"
Upon hearing his comments, Lars blanches slightly, remembering the last time he was thrown from a horse.  "Uh, will these mounts have saddles?  Is there a way to glue myself to them?  I have much more service to grant our lord and do not wish to be introduced to an unfamiliar piece of ground at high speed."

Traveling for business. I would have thought Japan had better internet access. (Granted I'm in the middle of an industrial town.) Hope to post this evening.

For IC reasons Lars will be trying to figure out how to defile the church / consecrate a spot to Asmodeus so that he can deal with the Archon without dying - or at least even the field a bit.

Happy to use the bow but that range seems excessive.

A Bluff check will do.

Posted IC.

After the conversation ends, the laborer!Lars gathers the papers and letters and heads for the gate of the keep.  As he nears the gate, a soldier asks, "What business have you here?"  Keeping himself a tad hunched over, Lars says, "Delivery for Captain Mott.  I was told it's urgent and should be delivered to him and him alone."

After a second he adds, "Should I wait here or can I pass the letter on?  I have no desire to be holding sensitive information that goes to our defenders."

He can have both, but you need to pick which is the favored weapon before play.

Thanks.  I'll stick with the rapier only.  He'll still have the tankard just not for battle.

I feel that GM'ing anything for my kids makes me a better GM.  They tend to throw things out that most adults wouldn't do and then you have to react to that.

Me = Me
G = My then 8 year old son playing Regdar from the WotC 3.5 beginner's box.

Me: Ok, so Regdar comes around the corner and is face to face with a lizard man who stinks really bad.
G: Um... I run away.
Me: O.o
Me: Are you sure?  I think you can take this guy.
G: Nope.  I'm outta here.  It's dark and spooky and the stinky-lizard man might hurt me.
Me (after a moment of thought): That's entirely reasonable.

That game needs conflict so it derails without it.  Now, with Little Wizards, I've had to think outside the box on more than one occasion.

Me = Me
M = My then 4 year old daughter.  (Almost five.)

Me: Your friend's cat ran away.  What do you do?
M: Go find it.
Me: How?
M: I'll cast a spell so I can talk to my cat.  (Her familiar.)  (Rolls and ends up with a complication; decided that she can talk to animals but not people.)
Me: (Now playing two cats, a dog, a bird and very confused people who are hearing her bark, meow and squak.)
M: You're funny daddy.

It was awesome!

OK, so simple guise it is.  Any rolls needed for this task?

"So, my current laborer guise may well be fine.  If questioned, I can always say I was looking for some extra coin and didn't ask questions."  With a smile, he adds, "And the innkeeper will gladly tell them how pathetic my attempts at earning money have been.  Long story."

Ludomaster is playing an 'retired' Steel Falcon and abolitionist priest of the Drunken Hero. as a note for you Ludo, Calienites don't really go in for robes per say. 'Formal' vestments are a brown tunic or robe with a wine red stole bearing the image of a tankard. Most priests just use the stole or a real mug.

Ah, got it.  So, a set of (presumably) clean robes in the pack for when he has to get all fancy formal.  That makes more sense to me.

So, if I understood the previous post correctly, then he can have the rapier OR the tankard (buckler) but not both.  I'm good with that.  I'm going to go rapier.  As cool as the idea is, I'll still with just the rapier.

So, Gear, take II
Rapier - Alignment Weapon - free (we'll style it as the weapon he used to liberate himself from his captors)
Reinforced Moderate Padded armor (DR1, Cold 5, Edged 2, DP 0, ACP 0, Speed 0) - 50s
Rations - 1 pack / 7 uses - feed self - 5s
Booze - 1 bottle? / 3 uses - reduce Shaken by one grade - 15s
Doctor's Bag - Use Medicine - 20s
Backpack - +2 STR for carrying - 10s
Tent - Heat/Cold 4 - 10s
That's 100 sp.  If I can have a few more things ...
Torches (5) - Dim light (30 ft radius); 1d4 fire - 2s
Whistle - signal (1 mile / 500 feet out/in-doors) - 2s

Is that a better listing for gear?

Has everyone else been watching Agent Carter? It's amazing, go watch it.

Finally caught up on it today.  Excellent so far.

I'm puzzled why they chose to make the Agent Carter one-shot the end point rather than the prelude, especially given how the two people who founded SHIELD spend this series being accused (and actually guilty) of treason

Drama?

I'm happy to delivery the message.  What guise is best?
