Default Re: [DFRPG] Crawl! OOC

Bain spends the entire morning checking the sage's map (Cartography, 14:13) and updating his own map with its information; he pays attention to the following:

Where treasure located?
Are there annotations about threats or other special indications hinting hotspots? (such as symbols or drawings of lizardmen, cyclops, orcs, seductive winged women, elder things, cringe jokes (advice), dragons, better paths, other dungeons, etc.)

He also wants to pinpoint treasure located in the route the party has been following.

On the other hand, he tells his friends about the portal, quietly but ASAP; he did not find anything special besides the very fact of its momentary existence. But perhaps one of the mages in the party can check for residual magic.

Bain also checks the place for tracks (tracking, 12:11), then he works with the map.

Taking what you just said into account, this happened while you were at the inn. Vicious, Gathika and Bain slept in the wilderness; do not we haven't left town, just saving coin.

They will meet with you at the inn, most likely.

The treasure is located on a very small mountain top that is five days of hiking away from the Keep.
The map warns of strange demons infesting the mountains.
You mean mark on your map where you found treasure already?
There are no tracks around.

Thanks, in what direction are the mountains with treasure?

I meant signs of treasure within the Caves of Mercy or along the way to the Caves.

Not to polemicize but to make things clear character wise:

If Telrith didn’t want to stick with the party, I would rather believe he didn’t do anything or that he built the fort in his room or outside the lodge (it’s what I conceived after ericthered said Telrith was away all the night).

There were other chances of helping the party that night, Gathika would’ve insisted in not bothering Telrith with the fort, “you are too generous COMRADE TELRITH, but save your FP, THANK YOU and watch yourself ( ^ω^ )”.

We just left a ball we were skeptical about. Makes no sense playing with the wagon or have Telrith walking alone at midnight from the outside the keep all the way to the lodge. We were at the inner bailey, Telrith stayed at the lodge inside town. We slept outside the town. Common sense is we gave him a ride in the wagon before camping.

The mountains are north from the Keep.

The treasure is not at the Caves. The route to the treasure is not on the way to the Caves.

Seeing the group's interests, I suggest we get going to the caves and deal with the things beyond the door. Then we could take a shot at doing Drake's job (going for treasure).

While his friends talk things out, Bain takes his time to check whether the party will need anything else to get going, he makes an inventory check and navigation check with Soldier (12+1) 13 and Navigation (14+1) 15; if nothing special arises, the group may start tripping right away.

Thanks! Can you remind me the direction of the Caves (from the Keep)?

Gathika rolls occultism or thaumatology (same level) to recall useful information about portals as described by Bain (but fails 14/15). She then goes meet the sage, she tells him of the portal and asks him if he has heard of such portals.

Going into the mountains may require climbing gear.
The Caves are north-east of the Keep, two days.

Gathika is not allowed to see the sage. Access to the upper bailey is restricted. Come back later.

Thank you Ajardoor, taking note of it.

For the matter of hitting the road, Bain supports his team with observation (13) 10, stealth (14) 11 and camouflage (17) 11.

Vic uses riding sl 11/rolled11 to move the horses/wagon. He will use survival sl 15/rolled 11 to set up the camp/forage for food at night.
