After playing two full games to completion, I agree. Beyond Earth has all the trappings of a good Civ game, but is at launch too rough around the edges, too many little details that aren't quite right, too really recommend. I'll probably wait for the first major patch, maybe even the first expansion, before putting Civ-games number of hours into this one.

I'm already waiting anxiously for the first expansion, since they strongly hinted in the Great Mistake video there'll be a Scandinavia (+Germany?) faction coming. Cheesy

Well, you never left it, I don't think? So technically, you're still standing in their room, looking at their table and spotting the scroll casing Janus mentioned, but you're unable to actually read anything while in the room.

So you're gonna impersonate the Alchemist long-term, then? You do realize you gotta interact with the townsfolk sooner or later, right? I'm just sayin', there will be some Bluff checks in your future...

'Morning after' medication doesn't really exist, and while 'abortion potions' (well, poisons really) exist they aren't viewed favorably by the Mitran priesthood and will get you in hot water if it comes out you peddle in such things. Basically, to get such a potion you'd have to do some backdoor/skullduggery dealings so she wouldn't have approached Caldwin about such a matter unless she had some reason to believe Caldwin was amenable to 'special requests' and a talent for keeping quiet.

Nope, if she's on the list it's for something entirely innocent, like a concoction for toothache or something like that.

Creamor sneaks back into the inn without anyone noticing, and gets a precious few hours of sleep before things kick off next morning.

Aiden is up before dawn, eating a cold breakfast and planning the fake expedition so it will at least seem legit. By the time Creamor has joined him, the list is 2 weeks of rations for everyone, skis, a hand axe, and some ointment against frostbite.

He also makes sure someone overhears when and why Lars offers to join their expedition. Once that is done, he makes the necessary arrangements for the supplies, and aim to leave the town before noon.

Janus settles into the guise of the apothecary, and before long has taken full stock of the little store. It's an easy task, as the late mr Caldwin was both meticulous and orderly, though as far as Janus can tell not overly skilled in the art. The shop is well stocked with basic alchemical supplies, but has very little of the rarer and more ingredients necessary for anything more than the ordinary, run-of-the-mill alchemy. The workshop in the back is competently set up, enabling the creation of all but the most esoteric substance. There is also a small wooden box, locked but the key is easily found among the personal effects upstairs, that appears to be the cash box for the shop, containing 180 silver.

Perusing the well-kept ledger, there is very little surprises to be found. The vast majority of the customers appears to be common villagers, buying ointments and tinctures and herbal remedies for all the little ails they suffer. There are a recurring handful of soldiers who occasionally purchases a healing potion, and going back far enough the occasional big order from what appears to be passing adventurers.

Aiden rubs the sleep out of his eyes, and responds with "So, what's the plan then? Janus plays apothecary while we use the circlets to cover for her? Actually, what's the goal here? Surely we can loot the place at our leisure now, so what's to be gained from Janus pretending to be the apothecary? I say she should leave town as early as possible, the longer we keep these complicated charades up the bigger the risk we'll make a mistake somewhere."

Janus eventually climbs out of the bathtub, looking down at the long-cold corpse with eyes eerily matching it's own.

Creamor lunges towards the bed, something the apothecary immediately notices and tries to roll away and out of the bed. Unfortunately for the man, Creamor proves to be the faster of the two and has the garrote around the poor man's neck before he can even get out of bed. There is a brief scuffle, but between Janus and Creamor the man has no chance and is quickly rendered unconscious.
The bed looks a right mess from the struggling, and there were some noise from the bed creaking and scraping along the floor and wall, but unless the night watch was right outside the door there shouldn't be little risk of anyone overhearing the brief struggle.

Well, as mentioned, it basically took over my life for a solid week, so... yeah. Very, very good. I've barely touched the Warriors franchise in the past, but from what I hear Hyrule Warriors is a good, polished Warriors game in and of itself, and the Zelda elements aren't just a thin coat of paint over Dynasty Warriors, it feels well-crafted and lovingly applied to the point where it feels like a proper Zelda game, even though it's a fairly radical departure from the normal Zelda gamestyle. And despite playing it like crazy for the last week there's so much content here I'm maybe a little over half-way done with it, it's ridiculous.

After doing little else for the last week aside from playing Hyrule Warriors, I can safely recommend it to fans of Zelda and/or Dynasty Warriors.

Janus creeps up the stairs as silently as she can, and at the top of the stairs quietly confers with Creamor about the fate of the apothecary. Creamor opens the door slowly and quietly, and begins creeping towards the bed. However, halfway there he notices the man tenses up slightly and that his breathing seems a bit too forced to be relaxed. It's a good bet the man is awake and aware there are people in his house.

Sorry 'bout the lengthy absence, got Hyrule Warriors last week and every day since has pretty much been 'just one match' and then suddenly it's nighttime. Combine it with being too busy at work due to half the team being down with the flu to get any posts done here and well...

Let's see if we can't get this rolling again..

Creamor quietly creeps up the stairs, cracks open the door and peeks inside.

The apartment is a modestly-sized single room, with a one-person bed at one wall, a bathtub and chamber pot in one corner, a small table and kitchen area in the opposite corner, a bookcase along one wall, a chest and a dresser next to the bed, and everything illuminated in the soft glow of an iron stove, keeping the temperature in the room at a comfortable level.

There is a person lying in the bed, and from the slow, rhythmic way his chest rises and falls it appears he's sound asleep.

TheV: Ah yes, I probably didn't separate it enough from Bill & Ted Creamor & Janus' Excellent Adventure, but Barden has successfully snuck into the dwarves' room, and have located the leather tube lying on the table. It's too dark in there to read anything or make out any details.

Janus and Creamor quickly settle into a sort of rythm, with Creamor rummaging through drawers and shelves, handing off interesting items for Janus to smell, taste or touch in hopes of identifying it.

Working quickly and quietly, Creamor finds several sealed bottles that looks like finished potions, a decent supply of alchemical ingredients, as well as a large glass bottle, very securely stored and marked with an unmistakable symbol of danger.

Janus believes that even though this is a fairly modest alchemist shop, there should be more in the way of supplies here, though that would mean rummaging through cupboards and drawers, risking making enough noise to be noticeable.
