Whatever he wants to be, we support his life choices.  ;D

At the very least it would be interesting to learn what exactly their mission will be as I don't assume they'll come along on our expedition.

By the way: Could you give an estimation of how many miles it is to Farholde? (The inch=1/4 mile on the image isn't terribly helpful without knowing the original format)
A horse gets 3 mph in forest/jungle environment, so I'd guess something around 30 to 40 miles?

Grumblejack, a spellcaster? Naah, he's a big bruiser and happy to stay that way. Also, unless anyone picks up Personal Lieutenant and picks him for it, he's not really gonna grow all that much, XP-wise.

We don't have to wait for the seventh before heading out, I don't think we were expressively ordered to by Thorn. But yes, the barge'll arrive, an hour or two after noon, we can have a dinner meeting if we want (though honestly we could just find a quiet corner of the docks and hash it all out there, unless you've got issues to raise it shouldn't take too long) then early-ish afternoon we can head off towards the Bryr. Travelling with Grumblejack on the barge downriver isn't a terrible idea, though we'll be spending several nights in the Bryr (don't forget the distance given was "one day for a skilled horseman", and that's on the optimal path between Farholde and the Horn).

Also, this is more or less where I had planned to 'dump' Barden, to organize and whip these young thugs into a crew of minions, and once up and running basically spend his time managing it.

Creamor might have to learn "Disguise Others" after all (Or teach Grumblejack to cast spells. It would be nice to have our own Oger Mage)

Oh and, just so I don't confuse something:
The Seventh Knot arrives today on a barge just like us, correct?
So we meet up with them, eat, talk and afterward have our barge move us downstream to an unobserved, out of the way place where we can depart. After sun down we move up to the edge of the Caer, make camp for the rest of the night and complete the tour the next day to avoid being eaten by nocturnal predators of the Caer.

Anything I missed?

Apologies if this is a re-post, but a new (as of 6/12) Mass Effect: Andromeda trailer.

And ...honestly? I feel better about living after watching it. :)

Yay, Mass Effect.

I gotta be honest, I nicked it off someone else. It was just too good not to share.

In related news, EU will be dropping English as an official EU language once the UK leaves. Probably not gonna be saved by Scotland leaving the UK and joining EU either, I could see them nominating Scots as their official EU language, just to twist the knife a little.

Also, what the hell is wrong with UK politicians? The country's burning down around them, and the ruling party's simply shrugging and doing nothing (seriously, did Cameron say anything of worth in the last Questions session or did he just parrot "that's an issue for the next PM?") while the main opposition is too busy backstabbing their leader (and about the only politician I've seen in this whole mess that doesn't come off as a massive cunt) because what, he might say some bad things about their Lord and Saviour, Tony Blair? With leaders like these, I guess the UK was always heading for disaster, this was just the fastest and most spectacular way of doing it.

Having Grumblejack get off a couple km's downstream and us meeting up at the edge of the Bryr is probably the easiest solution, yes. It'll add a day or so of traveltime since the optimal path would be to travel down to the southern edge of the farmlands, cut through the relatively thin strip of land to the salt brack, follow the edge and then the river up towards the Horn, while we'd end up cutting straight through the thickest part of the forest like this.

Interestingly, I believe the original ID4 began life as the intended sequel for Stargate, and I can see that DNA in the recovered alien delivery system and virtually identical finishing move against the alien big bad of sneaking in a nuke

True, and yet it took a long-running TV series for Stargate to actually get life breathed into it.  A series, if I remember correctly, that the big RE is considering non-canon. :P

Yes, because pissing off SG-1's sizeable and vocal fanbase is a great way to make a Stargate movie succeed. #Sarcasm

Is there anything preventing the barge from leaving the city, moving about 2 km down or up the stream, making a stop somewhere out of sight and having Grumblejack disembark? If necessary we can wait till nightfall, move to the edge of the Caer, make camp there and start our venture into the woods at first light.
