These are decisions for us a group, of course. Remember, if Anoras sounds like an imaginative, stubborn know-it-all, that's her! But my thoughts:

Anoras needs more sleep that Cassandra and Thad, but is a deep sleeper once she gets to sleep. (Note she'll wake up normally in danger as per Deep Sleeper in Basic pg. 101). So to me it would make most sense for her to take first of three watches. And as we've carried food with us and we're outnumbered by people, unless it's dangerously cold I don't see a need to light a fire. As Anoras has the highest Survival skill, I'll go ahead and roll on that in a bit.

Anoras (speaking quietly in case our enemy is near): "Thad and Cassandra, let us speak quietly in case our enemy is near.

"As you are both less subject to fatigue than I, and as I sleep deeply, I would suggest I take first watch. Also I will keep something with me. If either of you has something that could tie the hands of a prisoner, I can keep that with me. Do you?

"As you both may know I am quite flexible, so can easily make it appear my hands were tied. And remember I can easily pass for a Venasir; I know the culture and language as well as a native. Stars forbid we are attacked or captured. But if we are captured, and even if we aren't, I have two possible stories I can tell if needed.

"One, I can claim my hands were tied and you both took me prisoner. And I can claim you both know secrets important to the Venasir, and I can get that information from you. That could keep us all alive.

"Or two, I might claim you were with Haunden but decided to join the Venasir and you both rescued me. That could also keep us all alive.

"Be ready for me to tell one of those two stories if we are captured."

Anoras made Survival roll.

ericthered: Does Anoras know of castles/large villages/something similar that's Venasir that's a few days away from where we are?

"Like seriously, you think we'll get captured? We'll clobber them in no time, you can at least try not to act defeatist! Yeah, whatever, if you need your beauty sleep, I can watch whenever"

Cassandra is totally sure she can watch whenever. Anyone who knows her knows perception is not her best quality.

Anoras sighs, then speaks quietly. "No, Cassandra, I do not expect us to get captured. But that is a possibility. You should know by now I imagine different possibilities, and explore mysteries. If we could go back to the old days, before the terrible Venasir attack, I would. But we can't. So we have to be prepared for what might happen."

OOC: That was Anoras sighing, not me. I was actually amused by Cassandra's comment!

"Well! I think I'll imagine rescuing a handsome, and single, Prince instead!"

"Hmmm. Well I have my bowstring, but I probably need that. Oh and my belt. Hmmm! OHH! You could tie yourself in your fishing line and then you could even say you were the catch of the day"

Camping without a fire gives -2 to survival, its cold at night. Each character without the deep sleeper perk takes 1 FP from poor sleep in the cold. You can recover it on a successful night's sleep.

I would like to know who took the second and third watch, it looks like either Thad or Cassandra can just claim it.

The watches are uneventful. You can reach the castle by late morning.

Yes, three days journey can take you to at four different Venasir Castles, each with its own protectors. two of these castles have sorcerers.

OOC: Other players: I do have Luck, so if the blanket doesn't fix the issue which it well might, could do a reroll. But as I'd have to wait a bunch of posts to use Luck again, I'll think I'll wait and use it for something more critical. I have Deep Sleeper, and each of you have a lot of Fatigue.

OOC: Thanks! I'm assuming Anoras would know the names of the castles, right? (Don't worry about telling me the names; as this is a one shot I don't expect you to make up four names!)

OoC: Thad will take second watch. Failed Survival by 5. Apologies for being afk; work was insane this week.

Thad stretches and cracks his neck as the group begins to break camp. "Let's hurry up and get moving. I'd like to catch up and rescue the captives in enough time to set up a proper camp tonight."

OOC: ericthered, did we see a fire at night that could let us know where our enemy and their captives (our people) are?

Anoras (speaking): "Catch of the day, humph. But yes, if neither of you have anything better for a supposedly captured prisoner, I can use that. I may never need the capture story. But I know enough about fishing line, and I'm flexible enough, I can fake being tied up."
