Party decisions

The party can do whatever it wants to do.  Right now it is standing around on the battlefield outside the gulley.  How long it lasts  . . . .I will need to look that up.

If you want to rest And do the ritual just pay that idea in the game thread. Right now we just stopped combat and merry new folks.  Plan to investigate the cave can wait an hour.  I am sure searching, clearing bodies and general after battle stuff can take an hour

Weapon Bond

Weapon bond last forever - or at least it never expires.  You can be bonded with up to two weapons.  If you try to bond a third one of the first two goes away.  (Your choice.)  But if you never try to bod a third than it lasts forever.  It is simply a class ability - you always get to be bonded to your two top weapons.  It is a pretty cool ability.

Swimming

Keeper - two things are important here:

1.  Technically only Soledad sees the glow from the detect magic spell.  I didn't make that clear in the post, but that is how the spell works.  So she would need to tell you about it and then you could try to get it.  If she chooses to do so it would only be a delay of a couple of seconds.

2.  The gnoll is in midstream.  Swimming is something you can do and if it was just an easy swim in a lake I wouldn't worry about it.  This is a river with a reasonably swift (Not crazy fast, but not lazy either) current.  The gnoll is midstream and moving away from you.  You can run down the shore and catch up to it, (Difficult terrain doesn't quite start immediately.)  or reasonably close, and then swim out to it as it continues down stream.  You are wearing leather armor which isn't a big deal but isn't nothing - and you are also carrying other goods as well.  In other words, you are moderately encumbered.  So if you choose to go after the glowing object I woild do the following:

A.  Allow you to reach the gnoll with no major issues.  But exactly how far downstream it is by the time you get there is harder to tell.

B. You would then have to either drag the gnoll to shore or try and acquire the glowing object - which would no longer be glowing FYI.  Either of these would require an athletics check to keep swimming.  Possibly more than one depending on which choice you make and what you are trying to get.  (Soledad only saw a generalized glow.)

C.  Getting back to shore would also require an athletics check - you would be fighting the current to some degree.  

It is also worth noting that there is a bend in the river coming and it is reasonably possible that you won't get to the gnoll and back before going around the bend.  That doesn't mean anything beyond being out of sight of the rest of the party at the moment, but it is worth mentioning.  

Successfully doing this is reasonably likely, but not guaranteed.  The exact consequences of a failed athletics check might not automatically be drowning, but obviously it wouldn't be great for you.  Let me know what you wish to do.

With his strength Hornet would struggle. Will adjust post since he didn't even see the glow

Introductions PLUS

Introductions are good but don't forget to post something actionable.  What do you want to do?  Do you have any further questions?  Standing around post-battle could take us a month of posts or it could be done in one or two.  But for that to happen I need something more specific.  And remember that you can talk to each other here in the Q&A thread or by sending each other messages.  If you all just post, "we should clean up" and "what do you want to do?" in the game thread we will never get anywhere.  So talk here and then post actions there. (Not that the intorductions are bad, but we do want to keep things moving as well.)

Lily

I am withdrawing my character from the game at this time.  I just don't have time to post right now.  So while the party is clearing up the area, Lily will slip away and not be seen by anyone.  She is on a quest of her own to find her way back home. 

thank you for the fun times! Maybe later!

Dok Also

Dok also will take a hiatus from the game for the time being!

I will write that he also escorts the Twins to Botkinburg with Silver to secure the reward and cash in the ear bounties!

He will remain in town for the foreseeable future and the bounties will be secured and divided among the group and held in each of their names until you all return to town!

I have some Real Life matters to attend to!

I will return to the game if and when I can!

Busy busy

I'm moving next weekend, so a bit swamped by that. I will try to post something this week but may not be able to. If not, Soledad will perform the rituals for Unseen Servant and Detect Magic before entering the cave (assuming that is what we all do). I'd also vote for a short rest. 

Soledad is staying in the game, I'm just might be MIA this week. More soon!

@Nomad

I didn't realise the cave was so far from the rest of the party haha. Can I edit my post anr say Thäoran performs Weapon Bond after the party searches the cave for enemies/traps? Or aren't I allowed to change it now I've posted it?

@Tann

So sorry to hear about your mum. My granddad had dementia, too. Terrible disease.
