Tabris has connected.

Taragnor has connected.

Cedric has connected.

Cedric: all good?

Tristan has connected.

Sachi has connected.

Garrion: ok, that was annoying as hell

Tristan: yeah

You are here:

Tabris: Looks like Loryc’s house got demolished, lol

Cedric: so rest of us decided to get a place together of level 2

Taragnor: NOOOOOO!!!!

Garrion: yeah, lost the changes

Taragnor: Well put my house back there. heh.

Garrion: ok, is Zindal going to up his CoL or just stay at the same?

Tabris: I’m going to up my CoL

Cedric: we all doing CoL 2

Sachi: ; ;

Garrion: oh you all changing your CoL up to status 2?

Urso: ya, getting shared house

Urso: .

Garrion: ok, just making sure no confusion…. you can stay at CoL 0 and group the housing portion to get a status 2 house and remain at status 0 for all else…. or you can all spend at status 2 for everything, if you do that then the grouped house fund would buy a much bigger place than an individual could afford

Tabris: I honestly don’t care, I’m going to full CoL 2 for myself and the others can do what they want, lol

Urso: well I think we are sharing the status 2 cost?

Urso: maybe we each just pay status 1, and toghether that gets us to status 2 ?

Garrion: ok, that what i was making sure… so Zindal will increase general spending to $3k/month, the rest staying at $600/mo.. i’ll do tha math later for details

Urso: just to make it easier

Garrion: now to place your new joint house

Urso: any good options?

Garrion: anywhere in the northern priest sector, just south of the coin and scribe sector

Garrion: i can just randomly select if you don;t care

Tabris: Yeah I don’t really care, I just want access to a good tavern and some good women

Urso: perhapsa more high traffic area, so we can get lost in the crowd easier

Garrion: how is that

Garrion: ?

Tabris: Works for me

Garrion: ok, now that that is all done

Sachi: If it’s near a brothel, Melty will be doing a lot of lingerie thieving

Garrion: you opened the crux and found some things

Urso: heh, don’t think they make em that small

Tabris: Zindal has no objections as long as Melty shares

Garrion: you turning it all over to the “Children”

Sachi: Not to wear, she just likes to collect it

Garrion: ?

Tabris: Whatever Loryc wanted to do

Tabris: I think he said something about keeping the magic items

Sachi: You’re all gonna be finding piles of used panties stashed all over the house

Tabris: Not sure what we want to do with the disembodied Erinyes head either

Garrion: the wands and scrolls?

Urso: you want ot examine tha

Urso: thing more to see if anything else in there?

Taragnor: oh right..

Taragnor: yeah I wanted to question the erinyes when I had some time and privacy heh.

Taragnor: What were the wnads and scrolls again btw?

Taragnor: I dont’ think you ever fully told us.

Taragnor: And how does a GURPS wand/scroll work anyway, I remember you said it worked differently.

Garrion: yes, a scroll is a read item, it does not provide the energy unless it is a special self-powered form

Sachi: Can we keep the puzzle box? I like that thing

Garrion: it pretty much just lets you cast a spell as you normally would but of something you do not know

Taragnor: yeah I was gonna keep that.

Taragnor: Does the scroll disappear after you cast it?

Taragnor: Or does it remain?

Taragnor: So is it like permanently knoing the spell basically?

Taragnor: Or is it still a one shot?

Garrion: it is used up

Taragnor: okay how do wands work?

Garrion: If a mage who understands the scroll’s language at Accented comprehension or better reads it aloud, the scroll casts its spell, after which its power dissipates and the writing on the scroll vanishes. Reading a scroll requires twice the normal casting time for the spell; the mage reading the scroll pays the normal energy cost. No skill roll is required when the spell is read unless it is Resisted. In that case, roll using the skill level of the mage who wrote the scroll.

Taragnor: hmm.. okay so I guess it auotmatically works is the advantage of a scroll.

Taragnor: since ther’es no roll unless its resisted

Garrion: A “magic staff” is any wand or staff imbued with the power to extend your reach for the purpose of casting spells (see Staff, p. 70). It gives three main benefits:

Garrion: Touching a subject with your staff lets you cast spells on that subject at no distance penalty. This is useful in situations where you must cast a spell on a subject you cannot touch with your hand (e.g., a healing spell on someone trapped under rubble). This also allows a wizard to tap a Powerstone set into his staff.

Garrion: Pointing with a staff reduces the range to a distant subject by the length of the staff. This is valuable for Regular spells, as a one-yard wand shaves -1 off distance penalties, while a two-yard quarterstaff eliminates -2! You can point as part of the ritual to cast a spell. Tell the GM you are pointing at the subject when you start concentrating. (This might warn an unwilling subject!)

Garrion: A staff can carry Melee spells. This gives them more reach, letting you strike and parry without putting your hand in harm’s way.

Sachi: …Somehow I doubt Melty’s wand is long enough to reduce her distance penalties

Garrion: A magic staff can be any length up to two yards. A wand is Reach C, too light to do damage, and uses Knife or Main-Gauche skill.

Tabris: lol

Garrion: lol, correct

Taragnor: so wands don’t actually have spells stored in em D&D style?

Taragnor: It’s just purely generic magic wands to increase range and that’s it?

Garrion: yes, it can store spells…. the ones you found have spells stored in them

Garrion: i have to look up what spells i put to see if self powered or not

Garrion: Dispell Magic and Ward

Garrion: 8 points remaining in Dispel and 7 points remaining in Ward

Urso: sounds good

Garrion: they are self powered but once you use the power in them they are inert

Garrion: you still have to activate them though

Garrion: with an action

Taragnor: If I gave them to Melty… would she be able to use em? would she consider them staves? heh

Sachi: Hehe.

Taragnor: casue they’re like staff length for her?

Sachi: I’ve been wondering about potions too, like if I’m carrying around a potion is it a vial that’s as big as me? Or are there pixie-sized ones?

Garrion: yeah, more like a staff fr her size… really more like a polearm

Garrion: if a wand is about a foot long and she is 6 inches tall

Urso: heh, like a lance

Tabris: Wandachi

Garrion: ok, so you keeping the crux itself, the wands and the scrolls?

Garrion: how about the candles?

Garrion: and the silver box they in?

Tabris: Keep the silver box at least, can pawn that

Taragnor: I mean we’re gonna keep everything.

Taragnor: At least the stuff we’re not gonna sell.

Garrion: i thought you giving stuff to the pathfinder lady?

Taragnor: Well we’re giving her the ledgers and stuff

Tabris: The papers I think

Tabris: Yeah

Tabris: That stuff

Taragnor: the stuff that’s information, but the items weren’t pathfinder items.

Garrion: wow, what a ripoff

Taragnor: So we’ll keep them.

Taragnor: lol well they’re not her stuff, and we stole it fair and square.

Taragnor: lol what’s she need with em?

Garrion: you may find out

Garrion: may not

Tabris: What did those candles and things do again?

Garrion: ok, so who is taking the portfolio and its contents to her?

Garrion: the whole group?

Urso: might as well

Sachi: I’ll definitely go~

Garrion: Loryc evaluated their magic and it lets you speak with dead souls

Taragnor: Ah that’s right, yeah lets keep those.

Taragnor: Oh and we’ll question the Erinyes head as a group before we go.

Tabris: Heh, wasn’t one of those papers a list of dead Pathfinders and where their bodies are, or something like that?

Taragnor: I wanted to talk to that thing.

  • Urso puts his hat of disguise on before he goes out, it makes him look like someone who is 6’2", with long greasy hair and beard.

Garrion: ok… so just to establish timeline.. did you get houses during the week after the heist or you get those after opening the crux last session?

Urso: after I would think

Garrion: ok, so you want to hang on to the stuff for a while while you move to new houses or you taking this to her before we establish the new houses?

Taragnor: After opening the crux.

Taragnor: At least for mine.

Taragnor: I didn’t want to like get my house immediately.

Garrion: oh, i was under the impression you wanted to get new house and livestyle asap

Garrion: if that the case ignore the prorate i calculated up for you

Garrion: say you make the change on the beginning of the month?

Garrion: in 6 days

Urso: sure

Garrion: ok, so we will keep that on hold then…..

Garrion: while you are at zindal’s old room at the inn, you questions the head?

Taragnor: I figured we could questiojn the head at the chidlren of westcrown or do it outside somwhere

Taragnor: I don’t really want it screaming and drawing attention

Taragnor: so assume we find a reasonably secluded place.

Garrion: ok, your choice

Garrion: you can take head and portfolio to the Children safehouse

Garrion: you stuffed it in your magic bag right?

Urso: sure, Loryc has it now I think

Sachi: Hehe :3

Taragnor: Yeah.

Taragnor: I had it in my bag.

Taragnor: Okay, I’ll uesiton it at the children safehouse if they got a quiet undergroup room to do it

Garrion: ok, go ahead and narate your actions after the morning of opening the crux

Garrion: it is about 10am

Taragnor: Is the list of items on the site btw? I wanted to see what we found in there.

Garrion: yes

  • Sachi hovers around the head curiously

Garrion: on the adventure log or the loot page

  • Melty hovers around the head curiously
  • Zindal tags along with the others for the time being

Taragnor: Alrright guess I’ll don an illusion and make my way to the safehouse

  • Urso puts his hat of disguise on before he goes out, it makes him look like someone who is 6’2", with long greasy hair and beard.

Garrion: ok, you all travel to the safehouse trying to be descrete

Taragnor: guess I’ll keep the remove curse and greater healing scroll (Melty already has GH right?)

Melty: (yep)

Taragnor: I’ll take the silver box with the candles, melty can have the scroll of soul rider and the wands.

Melty: But what if the box is impoooortant

Taragnor: lol well the box wasn’t magical was it?

Zindal: Heh, I think the candles are more important

Taragnor: Also I’ll make sure to check the box thoroughly for cursed scraps of scroll in the lining.

Garrion: who keeping crux?

Tristan: I’m guessing Loryc checked to see if antying else had a demon attached to it?

Garrion: it wasn’t stated, lol

Tristan: then I don’t want anything in that mess

Taragnor: I’ll keep the crux for now.

Taragnor: I think I’m the only one who can open it

Garrion: but he does not notice anythign at a glance

Taragnor: I will keep a conceal magic on me so I’m harder to track too

Taragnor: Unless Melty can take it

Taragnor: I wanted to give it to Melty if she can carry it

Taragnor: SInce I wanted her to have a loot box too

Melty: I probably can if it’s not more than 5 pounds

Garrion: no, too big for her

Melty: Aww

Garrion: it is bigger than she is

Taragnor: heh okay.

Taragnor: alright I guess I’ll carry it then. Figure be good to securely store loot

Taragnor: since it’s a puzzle box.

Taragnor: I mean I can open it again right?

Melty: I wonder if there exist any really tiny bags of holding…

Taragnor: I’ll try opening/closing it to make sure if it still works.

Garrion: yes, unless somehow the code changes

Taragnor: like if the combo changes each time or waht

Taragnor: Well yeah I’m gonna try opening/closing it and making sure the combination doesn’t change.

Garrion: it reopens, this time

Melty: “this time”

Melty: outdated soap opera dramatic sting

Garrion: ehhe, gotta keep you wondering

Melty: series of individual reaction shots zooming in on each party member’s face

Taragnor: heh okay.

Taragnor: Time to grab the head and take it to the safehouse

Taragnor: then we’ll question it

Garrion: ok, so urso is magically disguised with hat and same with Loryc with spell, the rest are just natural selves

Garrion: everyone roll either shadowing or steath to make sure you are not followed as you go to the safehouse

Garrion: just vision based if you have any sight mods

Garrion: ok, you all head to the sfehouse and arrive individually over a stretch of 10-15 minutes

Garrion: you enter and see a variety of familiar faces…. Arael is not here but JHaniven is

Garrion: “So nice to finally see you again.”

  • Zindal smiles

Zindal: “Likewise, m’lady.”

Garrion: “Do you have any news since our last meeting?”

  • Melty takes to the air from inside Loryc’s collar.

Melty: “Sup.”

Garrion: “There has been some talk on the streets, in hushed corners if you know where to listen…”

Zindal: “I think our friend Loryc will take the lead in the exposition on that matter.”

  • Urso stands off to the side with his arms crossed.

Urso: " what talk?"

Tristan (Stan): *stands by Urso

Loryc: (so who are we talking to here?)

Zindal: Jhaniven, the chick from the safehouse

Zindal: Our “contact”

Garrion: “Something that has the mayor all riled up. Surely you have noticed the increased activity of the guards this last few days?”

Melty: “Aw shit, we— uh… That shit got knocked OVER. Mysteriously. By someone. Lory picked up like a geased devil stalker but I think we got rid of that.”

Loryc: ah okay… yeah I gotta refresh who that is heh.

Garrion: correct.. the second in command of the Children, that you helped with the rescue

Loryc: “We met some interesting friends of status and distinction… and I personally, was shocked by their generosity.”

Melty: “We foisted it on some Hellknight.”

Loryc: (Btw I’ll turn back into Loryc once we’re inside)

Loryc: (Gonna keep the illusion up though

Loryc: (just like not using it

Garrion: ok, can you supress it once in place?

Melty: (So basically you’re changing it into an illusion of yourself)

Garrion: ok

Loryc: (yeah or turning the illusion into something small)

Loryc: (like a coin, since it can change shape)

Loryc: (like there’s kinda no real limit to what it could turn into I think… so I’ll just make it like an illusory ring or logo on my shirt or something

Loryc: (And then just so I can expand it later if need be)

Loryc: “It’s surprising the kind of things that are just given to you when you know how to ask properly and pick a few locks.”

Loryc: “Of course, sometimes you get some unwanted guests… like a really disagreeable devil.”

Garrion: “I heard about your performance on the stage. It is all the talk of the town. You are all celebrities now. The Sixfold Survivors, they are callign you.”

Melty: “Yeah, they kicked ass! I wanna do that again.”

Melty: “It’s a pity they didn’t have a part for me…”

Loryc: “Yeah, once i considered a life in acting… stealing the hearts of peasant and noble alike… then I realized I’d rather just steal the gold of nobles.”

Garrion: “Though no one would know it by the looks of you. You look alot different now from when you were on the stage.”

Garrion: “Probably a good thing. You wouldn’t want to get mobbed by eager fans.”, she laughs

Melty: “Of course, showing my face in public like that would be unwise… There’s not a lot of pixies in this town, and I’m not trying to brag or anything, but I’m almost definitely one of the most well-known and dangerous rebels in Westcrown.”

Melty: (N.B. this may or may not be true)

Loryc: “Well you can feel free to fawn over us in private. I’m sure Zindal would like that.”

Melty: “Also the sexiest.”

Urso: " Urso stick out like Zindal at temple"

Tristan (Stan): “and you were not fooling anyone with that whip”

Tristan (Stan): “Mina should have had that part”

Loryc: “Fortuantely Urso has a new hat… and as it so happens this peice of clothing makes him a new man.”

Melty: “Zindal’d fit right in at some temples.”

Tristan (Stan): “the good ones”

Loryc: “Well he’d certainly help them make their quotas in regeneration spells.”

Garrion: Is Urso still wearing it?

Melty: “I heard there’s ones where you can donate for sex and that’s awesome.”

Tristan (Stan): (whispers to Zindal) "I think I know the name of our brothel, “the temple”"… think about it…

Urso: ( probably)

Garrion: lol

Zindal: “Hm…”

Tristan (Stan): *laughing to himself “the templte, where the gods always answer your prayers”

Tristan (Stan): “confess your sins”

Zindal: “Don’t you mean goddesses?”

Tristan (Stan): “this is brilliant”

  • Melty rubs her hands together with a grin.

Loryc: “Anyway, we happened to have a disembodied head in our possession and I was wondering if we could use one of your rooms, preferably subterranean to question it.”

Tristan (Stan): “well, the gods could tell the godesses what to do”

Garrion: a whoring woodsman sout who wants to run a brothel… priceless

Tristan (Stan): “but what you do in your free time is your business”

Melty: “No one tells me what to do!”

  • Zindal smirks… “You seem to be taking to city life well, Tristan.”

Tristan (Stan): (i was hoping someone else would run it and I can just visit)

Tristan (Stan): (to Melty) “they may tell you one time, this you strike them with lighting”

Garrion: “Sure, head down there.”, as she points to a set of stairs heading down. “Do I want to know why you have a severed head, and more so why it is talking?”

Tristan (Stan): “most of it sucks but meeting girls in the woods generally isn’t a good plan. But I still hate these stuck up nobles that think they are better than everyone”

Zindal: “I hear there are some rather beautiful girls that live in the woods though…”

Melty: “Well, yeah. The nobles we’re gonna set fire to. That’s, like, the whole plan, right?”

Loryc: “Well I wouldn’t blame you for being curious but at this point we have as many questiojns as you probably do.”

Melty: “Yeah, the nobles killed all the ones in my village. Except me.”

Zindal: “Our dear friend Melty is from the woods as well.”

Tristan (Stan): “yup, there are. An Elven maidian is the best thing on this green earth but she always comes with a ton of baggage and they live forever so they have a long time to remind you of anything you ever did to piss em off”

  • Zindal smiles as he strokes Melty’s head with his index finger, in his usual affectionate manner

Tristan (Stan): “not worth it”

Tristan (Stan): “no, the Fey…. they will steal your soul… but you really don’t care. That is worth it”

Garrion: "So should I assume you were successful at your “mission”? Should I summon for Ailyn?"

Tristan (Stan): *smiles huge

Melty: (How long do pixies live in Golarion? Is it like human lifespan or elf lifespan or really short or what?)

Garrion: they are fey, they have extended lives

Tristan (Stan): “I have a good 4 months of my life I can’t remember a damn thing… but I get a good feeling everytime I try”

Zindal: (Yeah was gonna say, I think fey live longer than humans usually)

Tristan (Stan): (he was referring to the super magical fey like dryads)

Tristan (Stan): (and nyphs)

Zindal: (lol yeah, I figured)

Tristan (Stan): nymphs

Zindal: (Zindal seems to have an inflated enough opinion of himself to think he can handle one)

Melty: “Hey… I knew a nymph once and she didn’t take souls. That I know of.”

Tristan (Stan): (he might be able to, and if not he could stab her to death)

Zindal: (Nah, that would just be a waste)

Tristan (Stan): “she could have if she wanted to, she would just have had to ask”

Garrion: "So should I assume you were successful at your “mission”? Should I summon for Ailyn?"

Garrion: ((did not see response?))

Loryc: “Not just yet.”

Loryc: “I want to question this.. make sure that Ailyn is who she says she is… and that we can trust everyone.”

Loryc: “A lot of people may be after the stuff we’ve recovered.”

Garrion: “Not just yet? But you did raid the vault? Why else would Aberian be all pissed off and have troops combing the streets and merchant shops.”

  • Loryc smirks.

Loryc: “Yeah we looted the vault good.”

Zindal: “We raided the vault… Loryc just helped himself to the mayor’s payroll.”

Zindal: “And it wasn’t really a vault so much as… A nightmare.”

Loryc: (to Zindal) “He’s a bit bitter about the security system.”

Melty: “Yeah, that shit was crazy.”

Tristan (Stan): “yeah, that place was nuts”

Garrion: “Well just make sure you don’t get caught being foolish ok? I would hate to loose good people to the cause like yourselves.”

Tristan (Stan): “who keeps a mummy in their basement?”

Zindal: “Who keeps a giant lake of filth there?”

Tristan (Stan): “that could just be drainage from the sewer actually”

Loryc: “I’m never foolish… ambitious and reckless, but never foolish.”

Melty: “The devils were annoying, but the architecture ruled. There were these shafts where you could fall down and end up above where you started.”

Melty: “Drainage from the sewer? I’m pretty sure that place was in another dimension…”

Melty: “Actually, draining the sewers into another dimension sounds like a pretty good idea for sanitation…”

Garrion: “They are looking for anyone who seems to have come into a fortune. From what I hear though it was just some coin and gems that were taken.”

Loryc: “I know a part of me did want to see that interesting architecture.”

  • Loryc nods.

Loryc: “That should make for some interesting encounters.”

Melty: “Yeah, we’ve been talking about getting a place together… Might be wise to lay low for a little bit though, eh…?”

Garrion: “Anyway, I better not keep you from your work. Let me know when you are ready.”

Loryc: “Hopefully it won’t be long… you can ignore the screaming by the way.. the head is a bit of a screamer.”

Garrion: She walks away to tend to other needs as Zindal stares at her ass….

Zindal: lol

Zindal: Yup, totally staring at it

  • Melty is also staring.

Garrion: melty can probably go upand pinch it and get away with it….

Melty: :3

Garrion: Zindal would have a hard time

Urso: " go going to talk to head?"

Garrion: ok, the stairs she indicated head down to a cellar

Garrion: it looks to be used for storage

  • Loryc nods.
  • Melty alights on Zindal’s shoulder

Loryc: “lets go talk to it.”

Cedric is disconnected.

Cedric is disconnected.

  • Zindal strokes Melty’s back with his finger

Loryc: (So we’ll find a secluded room and lay down the head)

Cedric has connected.

Tristan (Stan): heading to bed guys, i’ll leave maptools up so I can catch up on what happend in the morning

Melty: whispers “It’s like… Firm and pretty, but big enough to sway real nice…”

Garrion: as you take it out of the bag and ungag her the head starts yelling obsinities and assaults you with a litany of curses

Zindal: “Indeed… You have quite the discerning eye.”

Garrion: all in infernal

Loryc: I’m going to cast my gift of tongues spell to be able to talk in infernal and understand.

Garrion: so unless you can understand that language it just all sounds like a dark brooding tyrade

Loryc: I can with my spell.

Garrion: ok, your response?

Loryc: “Yes I know your angry, but I’m just going to put you in the bag again if you can’t act civilized.”

Melty: not in Infernal “Uh… Cthulhu fhtagn to you too.”

Garrion: roll duiplomacy -10

Loryc: ←rolls Diplomacy and gets 8 vs. Skill (18 with a modifier of -10)

Loryc SUCCEEDS by 0

Loryc: heh wow

Melty: woooo

Zindal: lol

Zindal: Nice

Garrion: she calms down…..

Garrion: obviously still fuming and angry but listening to what you have to say….

Loryc: “We’re not the people who cut your head off.”

Garrion: “So what do you want then?”

Loryc: “In fact, we very likely just stole a good sum of money from them.”

Zindal: “You sure it’s wise to be sharing secrets with a devil?”

  • Loryc shrugs.

Loryc: “Probably not… but I like to live dangerously.”

Garrion: ""I know you aren’t the ogre-fucker who did this to me. It still pisses me off though."

Loryc: “As for what I want.. I just wanted to talk, I figured you’d be lonely sitting that box for so long…”

Loryc: *in that box

Loryc: “And I can’t say I’ve ever had a conversation with a disembodied head before.”

Loryc: “You must have quite a story.”

Garrion: “Oh do I ever, where do I start? Lots has happened in the last… what damn year is it anyway?”

Loryc: (I’ll tell her the year)

Loryc: (not sure what it is myself)

  • Loryc sits down and pours himself a drink of wine.

Garrion: “Well a millenium is a long time to gather stories.”

Loryc: “Really? that long? impressive.”

Garrion: “I don’t want to bore you though. What are you wanting to know?”

Loryc: “Oh I’m sure you wouldn’t bore me. But most precisely I was wondering how you came to be stored in the chellish crux next to those other items.”

Garrion: “It was the damned bastard Darghentu. As if it wasn’t bad enough putting up with his shit he had to stuff me in the box and leave me there. I can’t decide which is worse.”

Loryc: (that name familiar to me?)

Garrion: yes, past mayor of Westcrown

Loryc: (ah okay, the guy who wrote the notes I assume?)

Garrion: Darghentu Vheed

Loryc: “Why did he decide to do that? Trying to weasel his way out of an infernal pact?”

Garrion: well the name list was written TOO him

Loryc: (ah okay)

Loryc: (any idea who wrote it?)

Garrion: nope, not signed

Loryc: (okay anyway, onward with the conversation)

Garrion: “No, he kept me in the middle of his table, always gloating and showing me off to his friends, sick bastard.”

Garrion: “As if not having a body wasn’t bad enough. He also took me with him to some place he was researching, stated with a D. He was trying to discover some secrets there.”

Urso: " secrets?"

Loryc: “WOuld that be delvehaven by any chance?”

Garrion: “Anyway, I guess I said something he didn;t like to some of his friends and he put me in the box. i never saw him again.”

Garrion: Yeah, that was it. Delvehaven. Some place he and some people he worked for had scammed out of some group."

  • Loryc nods.

Loryc: “Scammed?”

Loryc: (Did I hear anything about scamming the pathfinders?I tought they just abandoned it.)

Garrion: “Yeah, i heard him talking with people about how they had gotten control of this place and would steal all its secrets once they found out how to access it.”

Garrion: ((Thune let the pathfinders reopen it after the riots, but only with certain provisions..))

Loryc: “Well you’ll be happy to know that he wasn’t very successful.”

Loryc: (oh, when did it reopen? this recently? Or was this in the past? I’m nto sure how the tiemline works with this heh)

Garrion: Closed for 30 years, it was eventually reopened in 4674 AR after repeated petitioning by the Pathfinder Society. House Thrune allowed this request, but with a significant limitation: the House would choose which Pathfinders could take residence in the lodge. The Society reluctantly agreed, and the next two years were to prove greatly disappointing to it: the propped-up Thrunists in the lodge provided reports of many missing artifacts (“disappeared during the rioting of 4606 AR”), and the quality of their Pathfinder material was shoddy and unusable

Loryc: (So wait why are we trying to get in if it’s already reopened?)

Garrion: it was resealed

Garrion: The situation soon righted itself in 4676 AR. Rumors of a terrible tragedy in Delvehaven began to circulate throughout the Inner Sea region, and the Chelish government tacitly confirmed these rumors by closing the lodge entirely, sealing and warding the entrances with magical locks and wards of great power

Loryc: Ah okay, so the Chelish government sealed it and not the pathfinders. heh.

Loryc: I thought the Pathfinders sealed it

Loryc: So the mayor was operating on his own to try to reopen it basically and remove the Chellish wards?

Zindal: I’m gonna call it a night, pretty wiped out from driving all day and falling asleep at my computer, heh

Zindal: I’ll talk to you guys later

Loryc: k cya Tab

Tabris is disconnected.

Urso: ya, probably time to call it

Garrion: no, the pathfinders had the forethought to hide away the more valuabble objects when they pulled out during the riots…. they were searchign for those when it was under thrune control

Loryc: yeah guess we can continue the conversation on the forums?

Loryc: Since it seems everyone is getting tired heh.

Garrion: you can gather that from the letter… they were searching for the pathfinder lodge leaders who were there before they took it over to get the information

Garrion: ok, we’ll stop here

Loryc: k. Yeah can do the rest of the convesation on the forums probably.

Loryc: and get whatever info the head has.

Urso: ok, later all

Garrion: we can resume the questionign on the forums and resume at whatever point next time

Cedric is disconnected.

Loryc: k until nhext time.

Taragnor is disconnected.

Melty: Night everyone~!
