Too much is going on and I need to decide how Bailash is going to react to ALL of this news. Im working on a post at present but Im going to need some time to work out the order of things. No One post for one day Please.
Ive posted Bailash's reaction to all that is going on. Though it hasn't been 24 hours since the posting freeze, everyone can begin posting again. Everyone is to recieve 700 xp for great roll playing and the completion of a mission.
How long has it been since Chiron summoned Prajna just before setting out for the house?
Also, the Governor says it's a three hour ride and then says to travel 1 1/2 hours south to reach the destination... is the 3 hour estimate for a round trip?
I'm trying to do the math to figure out how long it'll take to get down there if Prajna's running. On the overland charts, an hour and a half of travel could be anywhere from 4 1/2 to 9 miles depending on the mode of transportation.
Prajna can run for 17 rounds without a problem, after that, she'll need to succeed on a CON check every round to continue running. With the Endurance feat, her modifier for that check is +7. The DC is 10 on the first round and +1 per round after that (11, 12, 13...)
If she makes it at least up to the DC15 check(22 rounds of running) we'll have covered a mile already. When she eventually fails, Chiron will dismount, spend a use of turn undead to give her fast healing 2 for 10 rounds, and walk her slowly (only a single move action / turn) for about a minute or so, and then repeat the whole process of run-rest-run until we're there.
Assuming she succeeds at the DC14 check during every block of running, we'll average a mile every 3 minutes.
in all honesty, Tenacity's encounters with evil are of the goblinoid variety, with only a theoretical scope beyond that. She's fairly naïve about certain things, so you could probably manage to bluff her about parts of your affliction. Chiron will be more difficult if he ever finds out, I'm sure, judging from how no one is actually trying to justify anything to him yet about Lacey.
Now let's just hope your sister didn't do anything silly while I was escorting her.
I've seen something similar happen to this before, so I understand Chiron's position. Some friends had a game going and allowed me to join with a character I had (cleric of Bahamut--all evil must be destroyed, etc.) and I didn't take into account how that might mix with a certain character already in the party.
Now, the party was mostly of a CN/CG bent, I think, except for the NE cleric of Nerull/specialist wizard (necromancy). I don't think anything would have happened if it had just been about their personalities and combat, but he raised a *lot* of skeletons. The others had spent a lot more time around him starting from when he was only on a disturbing track and not a full-blown desecrator of the dead, so they had dealt with and justified what should have been a serious moral conflict a long time ago.
Lovisa, my cleric, was indignant and in a righteous fury when she realized what was going on. With lots of "Why won't the rest of you do anything? Are you blind?" and such, but unwilling to just start attacking, she sought communion with the dragon god (a perfect opportunity for the DM to fix things up at least for a while). Bahamut as played by the DM told her that sometimes it is necessary to use one evil to fight another. That would have been fine if it had been a different god, maybe, but Bahamut is one that won't suffer evil in any form, right? It broke her brain and she believed that her link to her deity was being interfered with.
That said, it brought a lot of great tension and roleplay into the game. Chiron is in a similar situation (with the party-cohesion advantage of there not actually being evil in Ardulace) and is coping with some severe cognitive dissonance, I'm sure. In a world where racism of this sort is actually true (99% of drow are murderous, conniving slave-drivers, and the rumors that spread about them are worse in the way rumors get), it means that barrier of preconception is even harder to break down. It's unfortunate that Faerun isn't a more enlightened place in this regard.
No one here has green skin, right? Tenacity will be fine with everything, but will probably ask some *really* stupid questions. I apologize in advance.

I figured if you wanted to role play your "hunt", that it would be fine by me. You basically have your choice of prey. Just be careful that you cover your tracks so as to not take dire consequences for your actions. There is a 33% chance you will be caught. If she screams (if you take your prey forcefully) the chance goes up 15%.
So I was wondering about how long it would take Chiron to get down to the temple when he's pushing Prajna as hard as he is.
The paladin's plan is to just keep going as fast as Prajna is capable until he gets there. If he runs out of uses of the Healing Devotion ability, he'll switch over to throwing a Cure Light Wounds on the horse during each walking period (He's got 10 castings of the spell available.)
