I have no issues with you changing the post.

However, I kinda like the idea of him seeing even Pech as "big" folk.  Not essential but I liked it.

After the relative excitement of the first stop, the group finds itself settling into a rhythm.  Break the nightly fast, travel until noon, eat a small lunch and travel until reaching the next inn.  It seems obvious on reflection that the settlements grew up in relation to the delving trade with one exception.  The city of Voaz on the Sipsey swamp is the last trace of civilization before venturing out into the wild lands near the ruins.  Though nowhere near as large as Riverton, Voaz serves as the city of last chances on the road to the Ruins.  It is considerably more lawless than Thorn would like but far more resilient to corruption when compared to Riverton.  Though a river passage is rumored to exist, few are either brave or stupid enough to travels it.  It is said to pass through a demon infested section of the swamp.  Perhaps it is true but, perhaps it isn't.  Either way, the only ones who seem interested in traveling it are those smuggling goods (and occasionally services). 

In all cases, Voaz serves as a terminal for those coming back from or heading to the Ruins.  Forgotten supplies can be purchased here - for a significant mark up - and excess supplies can be sold - a steep discounts.

Bronn knows all too well that this small city will hold the last beds for some time.
Baxton can see opportunities to pilfer coin and test his skills here.  The thought of punishment only vaguely crosses his mind.
Brindlglib's mind reels at the absolute lack of planning evident here.  The roads are all wrong and he simply knows that the sewer system is defective.
Sidari realizes that she will need to follow Bronn and the others or risk loosing herself in the warren of people here.  The feeling of being watched returns.

Ronan smiles and declares, "I'll be down at The Drunken Bear if any of you care to join me."  He nods at Bronn.  "Tell me where and when to meet back up with you."

Lief merely smiles and says, "I'd simply be happy to know where I can find a companion for the evening.  I don't see many women delving with this group."

Yes, that was an extra helping of win!

Are Pech noticeably larger than Gnomes or am I missing something? Wasn't anticipating Baxton to be categorized with "the big folk".

His gnome is really in the TINY category.  We discussed the size ... and ultimately agreed to disagree.  Think TINY character (using the rules for a SMALL one) and your brain will relax a bit.

The problem/perk of deciding how to model The Bat is deciding which version you are working with.  I know that you stated Silver Age; however, I can never keep them all straight.  The Batman in my head is a conglomeration of all the *awesome/cool* heaped on the character for many years in many different media.

OK, sorry for my abrupt absence.  Work has thrown me a few curve balls including the notice that I'll be transfered at the end of the year.

IC post is up.  Let me know if you have any outstanding issues.

This stop has fulfilled it's purpose for the time being.  If there are no objections, I'll move us ahead.

The tracks lead to the edge of the woods where Bronn is able to get a good look at the tracks.  He is now certain that there are two felines: one male, one female.  They are most like part of a mated pair.

The sell swords look tired and the villagers look anxious.


After poking and prodding the bushes for a while, Sidari doesn't turn up anything.  The nagging feeling has subsided.


The proprietor returns with ale and cheese and a very small twist of salt.

In fact, I'd like to consider the idea of making proficiencies and foci the same thing ...

I'd like to second this.

Yeah, the idea that technology would keep on trucking with ubiquitous magic has always struck me as a little off.  However, it can work in the right setting.


I've got a few more things planned for this littel stop but speak up if you feel like your character is languishing.

The proprietor seems suitably impressed by the information produced by the little gnome.  "Good, sir, would that I had the time to listen to a more in depth explanation of these arts; however, I must attend to some things around here.  Do you fancy good cheese?  I have a block in the cellar that I'll slice off for you when I return.  Perhaps a draught of this new black ale from Riverton?"

With that, he disappears outside leaving Baxton and Bridlglib alone.


Bronn is quickly able to determine that the animals involved were very large felines.  At least two of them, one male and one female.  For some reason the idea of two large cats is tickling the back of his memory but he can't quite recall why this should be important.

John is standing slack jawed eyeing Bronn suspiciously.


Sidari finds the clearing in the woods comfortable but can't shake the feeling that she is being watched; however, she hasn't noticed anything.

Google Translate renders it as:

I love Thy Ball Too! The guy it's over! Spoken my hand!

As soon as Bronn arrives at the carcasses, he is instantly able to determine that the two cows were not ritually sacrificed.  These animals were devourved - at least partially - by wild animals.  And large ones at that.

John is still ranting about how the witch needs to be caught.  "She was wearing men's trousers and had a staff - you know all those witchy types have staffs, right?  Yeah, so she had short dark hair that was curly on the ends.  She had those demonic green eyes and pale, white skin.  She was short.  She's the cause of all this, I'm telling ya.  She threadtened me.  Uh, threatened to curse me and make me her pet."

Menwhile, back at the inn ...

"Excuse me Good Gnome," the portly proprietor addresses Brindlglib.  "May I ask what you are doing?  The string seems too thin to support your weight, though you appear quite light and the knots are spaced so far apart, I doubt it is for climbing."  He then glances around for Baxton as if assuring himself that he is still present.

Given that demons don't seem to favor anyone other than themselves and seem to delight in bringing pain and suffering to all who cross their path, the thinking is pretty universal.

Magic use is actually a capital crime in Dwarven lands.

John sneers at the inn keeper before hustling out the door.  He runs  - staggers really - toward a dilapidated barn near the edge of this small settlement.  As he dashes inside, the group can see the light from his lantern swinging back and forth.

"She was just here!  Brazen as brass.  We're too late, though.  She's moved on."

The other concerned citizens asks for the group to investigate the cattle.  The beasts are torn to pieces with indiscriminate organs removed or shredded.

I just count on them ignoring the original and going to see it anyway.  For reference, I enjoyed - not loved, but enjoyed - the new Total Recall.

In other news, I saw Looper this past week.
