You politely refuse the "quest" the priestess offered.>"Sorry, that's not the type of work we're looking for"You approach the statue of Edis to pray for a sign on how your quest should proceed. You quickly notice the statue hasn't been treated with proper respect! >"Hey! Is that a cobweb on Lord Edis' statue!?""Huh!? Umm I don't think it was there last week...">"And dirt on the corner of his shield!? Clean this mess immediately! Lazy woman!""Okay Okay! Fine. I'm doing it">You gain 100 XP>You now have 6375As usual Edis doesn't send any sign of communication other than a small sense of wellness indicating he's happy with your actions.Where to next?>Visit another god statue>Run a FULL INSPECTION of the temple in search of more neglect by the priestesses>Garrison>Arena>Theater>Library (non-magical)>Inn>Explore Oakheart>write in

>>2227098>ArenaGlad I caught this
>>2227204>>2227225You decide to make sure the priests and priestesses haven't let any other statues be neglected.Aldir looks a lot cleaner than Edis. But everyone knows the fire god's brazier should never be allowed to go out. This brazier isn't even warm to the touch. Unacceptable.>another statue>reprimand the priestess on duty again>leave in disgust>demand all the temple staff assemble in the hall of statues>write in

gotta go somewhere for like an hour, then I'll be back to run the quest, sorry for the delay...
>>2227454>>Garrison>>2227491Gotta nap for like an hour, then I'll be back to play the quest, thanks for the delay!
>>2227454>GarrisonWell, I'm back to play more seeker quest
>>2227461>>2227523>>2227876Oh that took a lot longer than I thought, apologiesSalaman: "Don't worry about it Christof they're just statues"Ulric: "I hope none of the clergy get smote"You soon arrive at the Oakheart garrison."Hold adventurers, I am assistant captain Borin. The captain is very busy at this time but I can assist you with any inquiries">"I assure you, I have most urgent news and the captain needs to hear this himself" (persuade 39%)>"I have news regarding Clarcton">"I am rallying men to aid the fight against the orc menace">"I wish to assist you with stopping the kidnappings">write in

Rolled 44 (1d100)>>2228384>"I assure you, I have most urgent news and the captain needs to hear this himself" (persuade 39%)Time for that 20 points in persuasion to pay dividends
>>2228477and if this didn't pass then I guess >"I wish to assist you with stopping the kidnappings"Is a good way to show we're the real deal.
>>2228477>>2228404>>2228549>"I assure you, I have most urgent news and the captain needs to hear this himself""I'm sorry. but it is not my decision to make">"I wish to assist you with stopping the kidnappings""That's good, the mercenaries have been assaulting people at night, and taking them away after they're uh 'immobilized'. We need to find out where they are coming from and wipe them out. If you can locate their base we will give you a sum of Talons as a reward">"How do you know they're mercenaries?">"What are they doing with the people they abduct?">"How many of them are there?">"What kind of weapons do they have?">"Have you slain or captured any of them?">"Have they killed anyone?">"Where should I search?">"How about I help you capture one of them so you can use interrogation?">"Two of us can use the Alarm spell, it could help catch the invaders as they come in even if they're invisible">write in

>>2228715>"How do you know they're mercenaries?"“Do you know anything about their numbers, weapons, or a general idea of where I should search?”>"What are they doing with the people they abduct?"“Have any of them been found or returned?”Also,>"Two of us can use the Alarm spell, it could help catch the invaders as they come in even if they're invisible"This is probably a good idea.Especially if a skilled team of adventurers are at the ready.
>>2228715>"How do you know they're mercenaries?">"What are they doing with the people they abduct?">"How many of them are there?">"What kind of weapons do they have?"Just give us all your info senpai>Is there any pattern to the kidnapping victims? >"How about I help you capture one of them so you can use interrogation?">"Two of us can use the Alarm spell, it could help catch the invaders as they come in even if they're invisible"I'm thinking we set some prime bait based on their abducting habits and set a trap.
>>2228776>>2228797>>2228810>"How do you know they're mercenaries?""The mercs came into town around 2 months ago they moved on pretty quick since there's not much work for their kind here. When the kidnappings started we eventually identified them as the same mercenaries">"What are they doing with the people they abduct? Have any of them been found or returned?”"No clue, might be working for slavers since they're taking people alive">“Do you know anything about their numbers, weapons, or a general idea of where I should search?”"Just six of them, they normally invade in a group of 3 or 4. They've all got iron arms and armour, their leader has an enchanted axe. My coworker Robinet can sense magic and he said one of them was a spell caster, she was wearing regular iron armour and had a weapon like the rest of them though. They invade from the eastern forest but Oakheart is a pretty big place when you're trying to find 4 invisible people in the middle of the night">"Two of us can use the Alarm spell, it could help catch the invaders as they come in even if they're invisible""That would be extremely helpful, we already know what direction they come from scattering some alarms around will really give us an edge">"Is there any pattern to the kidnapping victims?""They will take anyone they can find, they'll break into poorly secured buildings if they can't find anyone on the streets. We think they deliberately ignore children even though they're much easier to kidnap and more valueable as slaves">"How about I help you capture one of them so you can use interrogation?""That's what we've been trying to do, but they act fast and flee at the first sign of risk""Alright, I think the captain will be happy to accept your help, meet us here at sun down. You make your preparations while we draw up some plans with your alarm spell.">"Thanks, see you at sun down">"Do you know where I can buy some equipment?">"Can I borrow some equipment?">"Maybe we can use someone as bait to trap them?">write in

>>2229033supporting, let's get some helmets. And a willing victim, otherwise there's always Ulric. and >"Thanks, see you at sun down"
>>2229033>>2229064>"Can I borrow some equipment?""Ha! Who do you think we are? The Leefside Guard? heh heh">"Maybe we can use someone as bait to trap them?""We could, but there's a lot of possible area for them to show up in, we'd have to be lucky for them to encounter the bait. And if they think it's a trap they'll leg it. And good luck finding volunteers">"Thanks, see you at sun down">Wait until sundown>Temple>Arena>Theater>Library >Inn>Explore>write in
>>2229033>>2229064This.>there's always UlricMy first thought was to cover Ulric up with some peasant wrappings to hide his armor and make him resemble an older peasant, obtain a cart, and have him loiter in the streets with the cart, perhaps pretending to fix the wheel, while Alina is poised in a nearby rooftop or similar vantage point, Salaman is another such spot as well, and Christof and a cluster of summoned help hide in the cart, ready to pounce on the would-be kid-nappers.Surprise melee with Alina providing ranged support and Salaman casting additional summons or such.Thoughts?
>>2229112>>ExploreWe should know the place we're working with>>2229131Nice plan
>>2229112>Library Reading is fundamental. Ulric might want to split off to the Inn though.Alternatively,>Explore
>>2229112>TheaterLet's all go see this theater for a while. How many towns do you see with a theater. >>2229131>>2229131Sounds good, the guard can have the town on a curfew tonight so our bait is more appealing. We should have a way to signal any nearby guards to our location if we do find them.
>>2229141>>2229148You decide to explore the eastern side of town, here lies a merchant district and beyond that a residential area on the edge of Oakheart, most of the abductions occur here.

>>2229606Most of our stuff is already iron. I think we can go for iron armor though?
>>2229606>"Very lovely weapons...

>>2229635Uh. what do we have equipped?
>>2229652Oh, that's a good idea. Sell our old bronze stuff to get new iron stuff.

>>2229389this sounds good, it's high time for helmets. Red and Green paint, too. >>2229588That is an incredible amount of gold, if real.
>>2229661Yeah, let's trade up to iron armor for at least Christof, if not both.
Alright lads I think I'll end the session here, sorry it was shortened a bit because of that ~2 hour absenceThanks for playing and Seeker Quest will return in 7 days.
>>2229671awThanks for running
This has been the 20th session of Seeker Quest. A few days ago the suptg archive score for the first thread increased to 11 giving the quest an "excellent thread" rating which made me ecstatic. 10 threads ago the rating was 6 and we just finished the Bandit Camp.I intend to continue the quest for the forseeable future, I have lots of ideas. If you have any feedback, critique, suggestions etc now would be a good time. A few qtgs ago someone mentioned the combat system was weak which is why I changed it to enable more options.Thanks for all the support. See ya next time.
>>2229694Aw shit I was late again. also fucking great gif there, I love your art
>>2229694NiiiceI think the only thing I can ask for is having our current inventory on a pastebin or something where it's easy to check.
>>2229671>>2229694Thanks for running Dolomite!
>>2229694Just the pastebin as >>2229899mentioned would be great, and agreed with >>2229896 the art is top notch. Wish I could give more critique but imo you know what you're doing Dolomite.
>>2229694Read the past threads in the archive. Pastebin is nice. Early on when Christof leveled up, you said allies would as well. Alina got 20 points but no more lvls for the rest?
>>2233129Alina has an intelligence score of 6 so she started with 80 skill points (50+INT*5) and gains 22 skill points every level.Early on the mechanics were not well established and Alina unnaturally gained a few extra skill points in Ranged and Abjuration thanks to Christof's instruction.iir Alina's character sheet only appeared once in thread #13 pic related.Through dialogue with her all her skill points ended up been distributed to Ranged and Abjuration, both skills have a very low base value.She is now level 3 and has a feat. Although her character sheet hasn't been posted since she last leveled up.
>>2233145Ok so no more skill points for followers? Just making sure. Don't want ulric or salaman to miss out.
>>2233147Yeah I've been leveling Ulric and Salaman automatically. And if Alina is in a situation where she needs to use Ranged or Abjuration i'll just spend her skill points/feat based on the last recommendations Christof made to her.
