Bill - Gorbo should bear in mind that the Sackville-Bagginses are a branch of the Baggins family, and have a well-deserved reputation for selfishness, treachery and general mean-spiritedness.

It's no secret that they hate Bilbo Baggins, and Lobellia Sackville-Baggins would do almost anything to get her mitts on Bag-End. She even stole some of Bilbo's silver spoons the last time she was there...

Everything should be fixed now.

It doesn't change the text too much.  I just removed the reference to the family superiority and made it a reference to the weed.  Gorbo is a connoisseur of weed and each has its own merits.  I also dropped the stuttering over Bilbo's name.  The core of the statements and questions still remain.

Wolverine and Foproy - are Erkenwulf and Dren up to anything?

Ok, who is riding a mount and who is riding the cart? It has a ground speed of 5mph, and the journey is well over 300 miles. If anyone really wants to walk then it'll slow the journey substantially.

I'm assuming Erkenwulf is riding his horse, and unless I've missed something I'm the only one of the rest who has ranks in ride (but not the focus :/) so I guess I'll take the reins of the cart.

I will alternate riding in the cart and walking depending on terrain.  With Pathfinder Basics for both plains and forest/jungle, my travel speed is 5 mph through those terrains.  Also, I am assuming light hills is covered by plains (or forest/jungle if wooded).  It seems a closer match than caverns/mountains.

Whenever we stop at a village or town, I'll ask around and see if anyone knows if Saradoc and company came through the area and if they have any other news about him.

I'll follow Bill's example of alternating between walking/riding, wanting to be off the cart in areas that look prime for ambushes or tight/busy in terms of the terrain, as long as I don't slow the party down to much with my slow but steady speed.

Sorry folks, I've been stuck in an unexpectantly busy weekend. Erkenwulf will indeed be riding his horse.

I'm kinda of figuring the broad axe to be a weapon that's easily half the size of my dwarf, please correct me if I'm wrong. Anyways it's typically used as a walking stick with the head end being the handle, or cradled in his arms at the ready kind of like you would do with a shotgun when out and about in the wilderness, or slung across his back if he's in an urban environment.

It's fairly obvious who the grey traveller is - Bella and Gorbo will certainly have a good idea who he is, what with his reputation in the Shire. If anyone else wants to know of him in-character, feel free, as long as it is good for the story.
