CameToPlay - No problem on the post. Most of the time retainers are just servants and they do what you tell them to do. There is no reason for you not to post the expected actions and even drive character development. This was one such case - what you did made complete sense. It is really only if there is a situation that calls for independent action that I will insist on control. It is possible I could veto an action - unlikely, but possible. Or maybe I surprise you with something they do. But most of the time when it isn't a combat situation they are yours.
Now that the retainer thing is cleared up (sorry everyone), I'll contribute to planning by saying I was waiting on the rest of the party to give their opinions on if Constantine can come any closer before then discussing in-character what was the next step (which would be dismissing his retainers to Botkinburg and pursuing the goblins to their HQ, as Constantine's preference).
Hey Nomad I put up a post now it looks like everyone is going to go into the shealter if that happens and i can do as i said turn back and then approach you can just put me at moving and being noticed by the party so we can have a quick intro and move along let me know
PS: To Tann Hey man looking forward to getting to know the Tiefling better Silver is female after all
Ravensbrook - It sounds like the sort of name one adopts when they can't remember their father's name. You know, the father they are supposed to be searching for and desperate to find? Their mentor in life? The one they think about always? Yeah, that guy, whose name you can't remember. Exactly.
Bu seriously, it sounds like a great fantasy game name. Just don't try and tell me you are suddenly a vampire elf.
