Re: Notes from 8/29/19 - Khazan is gone

We let random people, eho have been sneakily watching us and not helping, to suddenly join the party and be members in good standing. Obviously this party is insane. At the very least Cat should be on duble-secret double probation or something.

Tome of Strahd von Zarovich I am The Ancient, I am The Land. My beginnings are lost in the darkness of the past. I was the warrior, I was good and just.

Panning for Nuggets of Certainty

During the long rest, Mercy tosses out these thoughts: “I was so happy to see an intelligent dragon, but…” (Mercy gives a small shrug.) “I’m confused. That may not have been a dragon.” (She looks around at the others.) “Shar, or someone, really should have been clearer on what we should expect. 1. W...

Mercy has no knowledge of this time. She can track the attackers of the fort, or maybe help look for orc-spoor in general. Otherwise, she will defer to the party's needs.

Re: Treasure Division - all worlds

One of the most fun things, I think, is when you wind up with a treasure item and have no idea what is does or how best to use it. For example, I have a character in another game who found a magic vending machine in an iceberg (don't ask). She can put in coins, can ask/wish for particular items, and...

She also took the helm of an orc that she left behind in the Tormhall. She got a clan symbol from a drow house and s...
