I do not intend to jeopardize your reputation should I fail - you need only grant me whatever aid you can spare to ensure my speedy progress. If I succeed in my endeavor, the rewards for both Uthain and Alfor will be legend.Arch Duke Lockridge: "One last shot at the wish granter... Alright Christof, I'll have my Illume contact the king of Uthain. Hopefully we will be able to negotiate an agreement that will help both of us. Here take this."He hands you a small metal disk, it has a circular piece of smooth alexandrite embedded in the center. He presses the gem and it lights up.Arch Duke Lockridge: "When you press the gem, we will be able to find out where you are. And deliver you spells, magic items etcetera."He presses the gem again and the light goes out.Arch Duke Lockridge: "I must return to Aramoor, then my diplomats and I can begin negotiations with Uthain. Someone else will have to lead the campaign. Probably Blackyard.">"Wait you have an Illume here right now? May I speak with him?" (persuade 79%)>"I don't want to carry a... homing device, is there some other way we could communicate?" (persuade 59%)>"Is there anything you can spare right now? Every bit counts with this mission." (persuade 49%)>"How long will it take you to reach Aramoor?">"High level abjuration spells would be most helpful.">"I think magic items would be most helpful for my quest.">"I don't suppose you would have access to advanced gunpowder weaponry?">"I don't really need items. But I would like some man power when the time comes to enter Tywardreath.">"Thank you my lord, farewell">write inNote: failing a persuade attempt will end the conversation. Order matters.
>>2913578>>"I don't really need items. But I would like some man power when the time comes to enter Tywardreath."A guide,>>write in, even an accurate map would be helpful. That way, we can start with some scouting right now, while negotiations are ongoing.
>>2913644>"I don't really need items. But I would like some man power when the time comes to enter Tywardreath."Arch Duke Lockridge: "What kind?">"A guide, even an accurate map would be helpful. That way, we can start with some scouting right now, while negotiations are ongoing."Arch Duke Lockridge: "I should be able to get you a map of Tywardreath. I'll try to get in touch with a survivor from one of my previous expeditions to be your guide. I should start making preparations. Good luck on your mission.">"Thank you my lord, farewell"Later...A Leefside guard hurries up to you. "This is from the captain, talons for some recon job you did yesterday, and for the work you did today.">You gain 700 Talons>You now have 725Also you have 20 unallocated skill points. Would you like to allocate them now?
>>2913738In transit, but here phone posting.I'd like to allocate. I think we were going to do five to crushing and 15 to stealth, but I'm not certain on that. So we'd probably be better off getting confirmation from other anons before going with it.
>>2913769I think there were plans to start studying a new school of magic
>>2913779Let's make those ugly numbers a little more palatable:Hacking 63->64Stabbing 61->62Rangd 37->38Shield 21->22Disguise 17->18Traps 27->28Persuade 79->80Listen 59->60Just for eight points, 12 more for the new school of magic. Necromancy maybe?
>>2913817I agree with the stat changes, but for magic we should go with Transmutation or Illusion.To change items into others, or Illusion to make some sounds that isn't there real useful
>>2913829I am fine with just more transmutation for now.
>>2913817We are crushing with a hammer.Don't need hacking or stabbing.or even ranged or shield(if weapon is two handed)Disguise and traps have use....
>>2913817>Disguise 17->20>Traps 27->30>Persuade 79->80>Listen 59->60Eight points, autism satiated.Twelve to transmutation.Or20 to TransmutationThoughts?
I'm not totally opposed to ranged, though.
We should check in on Alina too, if we get a chance.
>>2913951>Don't need hacking or stabbing.>or even ranged or shield(if weapon is two handed)Keep in mind that the bandit that we have a feud with has a flaming sword. Don't marry the hammer just yet.
>>2913976>Keep in mind that the bandit that we have a feud with has a flaming sword.Sounds perfect for Ulric!>Don't marry the hammer just yet.Too late!(It was a quiet ceremony, just friends, family, and equipment.)
Doesn't look like there's really a unanimous decision yet. I'll keep the voting open for the level up but move things along....It's very late into the party now. The sun will be up in a few hours. You feel like you should check in on Alina but you have no idea where she is right now. You have no idea where any of your party members are.You find an abandoned structure with some guards sleeping/passed out inside. It has a cozy (and slightly hazardous looking) fire inside so you decide to set up your tent and wait till morning.The following day you meet up with Ulric, Salaman and Alina. Salaman looks well rested. Ulric looks a bit underslept. Alina looks like she woke from the dead. Her hair is all messed up and she sits slouched staring into space. Looks like it's time to plan your next move. Thanks to your arrangement with the Arch Duke you will probably want to wait for him to provide some assistance before you head to Tywardreath but there are other things you could focus on until then.>"Alright everyone. Listen up...">"We have unfinished business with those wicked sorcerers. We should put a stop to them.">"We should go to Malgrave, see if we can find the 'lesser' wish granter that supposedly lies there.">"We need to acquire some more powerful equipment, like magic items.">"We need to collect some more high level spells. Especially for Salaman.">write in

>>2914071>>"We have unfinished business with those wicked sorcerers. We should put a stop to them."
>>2914109>>2914123>"We need to collect some more high level spells. Especially for Salaman. We also have unfinished business with those wicked sorcerers. We should put a stop to them."Salaman: "There must be several locations in Aflor where there's a large amount of natural magic. There are usually ancient obelisks in these locations that suck up the magic in the air and turn it into spells ready to be transferred straight into a spell book."Ulric: "Yeah and magic zones attract magic monsters. Strong spells always end up being guarded by strong monsters right?">"I understand the concept. In Uthain we have ornate engraved shields that more or less act the same as the obelisks."Salaman: "But anyway, we could pretty easily find a diviner and pay for him to show us areas with high magic in Aflor. Those locations usually have a spell producing monument.">"Wait, will the evil sorcerers be in a high magic zone?"Salaman: "Definitely. They would want to establish some sort of magical infrastructure and they need a good magical atmosphere to do it."Alina: "The uh.. oh gods... all the shops and things are going to be open. That's what I heard. We can go to the magic shops!"Before you head to the diviner/ magic shops is there anything you would like to do? You can have a conversation with one party member.>Ulric>Salaman>Alina>Cursed Mace>Pray>write in
>>2914241>>Cursed MaceSo, what do you think about nails?
>>2914241>>AlinaWhat did you get up to lase night? Couldn't find you anywhere.
Can I get a tie-break? Otherwise I'll just go with the first option in a few minutes
>>2914264>So, what do you think about nails?Cursed Mace: "I think only of destroying your enemies.... Master...">"okay..."This thing is giving you bad vibes. You still have half a mind to have it destroyed. You could just sell it though. As a weapon you suspect a superior blunt weapon might show up eventually anyway.Salaman and Ulric have packed their belongings and are waiting to leave. Alina is resting her head on the table with her eyes closed....
>>2913955I like this, except for Transmutation. We should go with Evocation.
>>2914392>>2914309im getting cucked hard tonight

Finding "Remove Curse" seems like the best and most practical option, especially since we have discount-Molag Bal over here, but there are a lot of other tempting options.
>>2914560Diviner: "Ah yes, the bones are becoming clear. North East of Clarcton off the beaten path lies a cave. Within are artistic carvings on the walls that contain the spell Remove Curse. The truth is revealed! That will be 200 Talons.">You now have 525 TalonsUlric: "Oh that's pretty close">"Can you locate magic items?">"Can you tell my fortune?">"What about the other schools of magic?">Reveal Spell Location>"That's all for now">write in

>>2914769I say we stop sending our fortune down the drain. Save the money
>>2914871>>2914893Diviner: "Come now. I'm sure you'll get your moneys worth. I fully reccomend paying for a full service!"
>>2914893>Save the moneyFair enough.Let's just grab a pigsticker for Ulric from somewhere and check out that closer, remove curse, location. Scry it out when we get close maybe.
>>2914901"No, thank you"Now grab the gang out of here. Were going straight for remove curse
>>2914769>Diviner: "For just one talon I can consult my magical fortune cards and read your fate!"A talon more for a clue could be fun.>>2914901Sketchy though she may be.
>>2914926>>2914893>>2914871>"No, thank you"Diviner: "Perhaps another time then. Would you still like your fortune told?">>2914934>"Okay, since it's so cheap"She gets out a deck of stylish not!Tarot cards and shuffles them.Ulric: "Oooh parlour tricks"Diviner: "This is no trick!

"You have drawn the murderer right side up. It symbolises Control, willpower, success, action, determination."
"You have drawn the imposter upside down. It symbolises Domination, excessive control, inflexibility, self-discipline."
"You have drawn the thief right side up. It symbolises resourcefulness, power, inspired action."
I'm done for now. Seeker Quest will continue tomorrow. Thanks for playing.Now you want to head straight for the Remove Curse?And I still haven't made a final decision on the level up.Anything else you want to do next session?>write in
>>291500020 into traps. Once we get to tywardeath its probably gonna be trap country. Ya just know itANd then we go straight for Remove Curse. But ask Alina if she wants to sit this one out.
>anons wanting to talk to cursed mace instead of alinaDissapoint
>>2915014yeah I should of gone with the option I liked better not the one that came first
>>2915000Thanks for running.>Sword for Ulric.>Journey towards Magic.>Beauty Rest for Alina.Book titles and actions for next session.I say we leave the level up open for a while, to let stragglers, lurkers, and sleepers weigh in.
>>2915084Probably. It was frustrating, but funny too.
>>2915098If we pause to wait for lurkers then we'll stack 10 levelupsAlso Christof looking dapper with that cape
Evocation. Seriously.It will help!
>>2915479Dunno I think we should use melee for damage, not spells. Also,>thread today tomorrow>just as u go to sleep againFug
>>2915479I was the one who brought up evocation last thread. Missed the vote on this one.Seriously, we have evocation spells we can't use, and we passed by some seriously nasty effects because we couldn't use them. I'd rather go with a non magic stat if we don't go with that one.
>"Alright. Ulric, Salaman you're coming with me to find this Remove Curse spell. Alina you stay here and rest"Alina: "Wait what? I'm up for this"Ulric: "You don't look so good Alina, I'm with Christof"Alina: "But I..." *she trails off and mumbles*>"Don't worry we'll be back in a few days at most"Alina: "Well okay... I could use some extra sleep, I guess">"We'll be back before you know it. See you soon."Ulric: "Drink plenty of water!"Salaman: *throws her some talons* "go buy yourself something nice."Alina: "wha-?"Alina obediently heads to a tavern to rest. The men head out into the wilderness. Although you're quite close to town. The lack of pathways and roads quickly becomes a problem.

Just grass and hills.">"I'd like to check up on Alina, see if she's okay."Salaman: "Alright, get out the CB"You place the crystal ball on a nearby log.Ulric: "W-wait, are you going to use that thing to spy on Alina?

>>2918230This, we can spy on her later
>>2917723>"Don't worry she wont know." (persuade ???%)Chances are, she's not bathing.
>>2918074Legit interesting idea. Having Christof chide Ulric for being a softie. But I don't think i'll go with it for now.>>2917774>>2918442>"Don't worry she wont know."Ulric: "I'll know!"Salaman: "Ulric, you're making this needlessly difficult."Ulric draws one of his swords on you.Ulric: "No!

Rolled 85 (1d100)That was the last update I'm doing for the thread. Next session will be in 13 days. (sorry)Thanks for playing(if dice is 90 or above Alina is actually taking a bath)
Casting immunity to swords is cheating, it's not a fair fight in the slightest you guys are just beating the shit out of ulricI'm voting for we don't cast the shit or at the very least throw down the hammer and wrestle him
>>2919730>wanting a fair fightBe glad we are not using the cursed mace.
>>2919925Ultimately, he is our friend and we are kicking his ass because he didn't want us to use a globe to spy on the girl he likes.Try yourself in his shoes, what is going to happen to our friend ship after we beat him to an inch of his life with a fucking warhammer? What is Salaman going to think after watching you beat the shit out of Ulric in an unfair fight for disagreeing with you? Whats alina going to think when ulric ultimately tells her everything? also this bullshit >>2919187>"I feel responsible for Alina"we literally brushed her off again and again in preference to talking with our cursed mace. Ulric obviously noticed all of that since he likes her. All im saying is, give him a fair fight.
>>2920025I meant like "responsible for her safety" we brought her out here after all.But yeah ur right. Fair fight sure. Dont use magic dol
>>2920025>What is Salaman going to think after watching you beat the shit out of Ulric in an unfair fight for disagreeing with you?
>>2920200This is hilarious and I love it.
>>2920653Don't get me wrong, I feel terrible for Ulric, and I'll probably feel even worse if it has permanent negative impact on our friendship, but I can't help but laugh at this image in context of this situation.
>>2916657>Alina you stay here and rest"Where did *that* come from?>>2915098>Beauty Rest for Alina.Oh fuck. That was me. Oops. I just meant we should rest before intentionally engaging anyone.

Like knocking him down.>"Don't disrespect me by holding back.

>>2926926C.Round out the semi-useful secondary numbers, then work towards secondary offense for when our hammer isn't enough.
>>2926926You may also notice from the character sheets that Alina is sitting on 21 unspent skill points.
>>2927125>Alina is sitting on 21 unspent skill points.That sounds terribly uncomfortable. No wonder she seemed so unhappy. We'll have to fix that.
>>2926926C sounds good
>>2927125>>2927156>AlinaWhat about going rogue with her?>Stealth 27->40>Lockpick 19->20>Traps 23->30
>>2927785As tired as the "female rogue" trope is, it actually makes a lot of sense for her. She doesn't seem like the type to be a full-on thief, rather a sneaky survivalist type who knows how not to be seen.She also started off as a "normie" citizen, with no background with magic (aside from when we tried to teach her) and she doesn't seem like the type to get up in danger's face and poke them with a stick.TL;DR I agree.
