If zombies have done anything in pop culture, it's make basic emergency preparedness cool.

Indeed.  Having a week or two or food on hand and some emergency water isn't paranoid, it's the responsible thing to do.  Not to mention that even if you never need it yourself, you can always share with someone who does.

Lars glances at the innkeeper's wife and ask, "My dear, are you all right?  You seem worried?  Can I help?"  He smiles at the woman.  To the others in the hall he says, "I was up praying for guidance.  I know I heard something, but I have no idea what would have made the noise we heard."

Lars is in the corridor as well.  Going to post IC to that effect.  Let me know should that prove problematic.

I'm not sure if the man carries money with him when he goes into his cellar  Wink

True, but we can hope, yes?

Take some of his coin too, but not all of it.  That way it's not obvious that it's missing but if someone sees through the fake murder, they may ascribe it to a robbery gone wrong.

Lars, still awake after his bout with spiritual communication, hears the mental summons and mutters to himself, "By the Contract, what are they doing that requires screams in the cellar!?"  Thinking quickly, he decides that more noise will only bring more attention.  He steps out "for some air" to survey the area and see who else may have heard the commotion.

I'll happily kick in an AD or 2 to have him fall down the stairs if that helps.

Is Lars part of the whisper spell at this point?

Both from the barkeep situation and from a Leona standpoint.


Sharpening his knife is likely to be Lars' next move upon hearing Leona's objections.  Can we parley that into role playing efforts?

Amusing does not begin to describe the pictures in my head as I read this.

I've read the books that followed the original line of thought from the creators of Stargate.  The concepts were bad; however, they were no where near as good as SG-1.

Time will tell.  Might be good after suffering from low expectations.

Between and Infernalist and a Priest who shares the alignment, they can be trusted as far as makes sense.

Which may not be all that far, but farther than a farmer's wife at the crossroads at midnight could trust them.

The idea being that the devils take the horn in trade for the mace but they only tell us where it can be found because for some reason they can't easily lay had on it themselves. Fortunately it's nearby...

I can't help but think that the ellipse is hiding the lack of important details.  Something like the mace is now in a secure vault within the keep's dungeon sitting on a Mitran blessed altar or some such.

I would imagine Lars would have similar concerns unless the devils would draft a contract stating why they can't get the weapon.

My favorite show as a kid.  May have to kick some cash Mr. Burton's way.

Being a priest of Asmodeus, Lars would be OK with option 1.  However, he'd want to review the inevitable contract very carefully.

EDIT: There would be an upper limit, maybe 15 to 20 heads. I think Pathfinder puts a limit on it, and in Dungeon Crawl it stops at 20 heads. It's still insane, yeah, but like I said - I'm not going to risk getting eaten to produce "the ultimate monster". Not to mention it would cost a lot of action dice.

Additionally, as a foil, what's stopping me from making an Animal Partner with Splitter and just cloning it endlessly the conventional way? Instead of more heads, I'd get more... monsters.

There should probably be a caveat on there about "only edged weapons" being able to sever a head, and something about fire damage cauterizing the wound before the heads grow, but I didn't want to get too far into that yet. It's just a houserule right now.

All of the above is good thinking.  Something to keep in mind: the NPC system was designed for NPC's which means that you can break things when it is a character run NPC.  Sure, XP limits prevent the worst abuses, but they still happen.  I was just pointing out that the sorts of limits you mentioned needed to be in place at some level.

Those poor kids had never been able to think outside the box before in their gaming because of their computer/console introduction to it. If this had been a raid in WoW, their wouldn't have been able to make their own doors, so the thought of doing it was alien to them. The lack of out of combat awesome in 4th only reenforced that lack of critical thinking for that group. Sad.

Truly sad.  This is why I have to get my kids to play games with me.  I don't want their imaginations to wither under the soft glow of the computer screen.
