    The elder elemental eye... I called it many months ago as the group kame together with elemental themes (fjord with water, yasha with air, ceb with fire and molly from the earth) but he seems to have chosen another disguise this time.

    3:56:21 - WHAT THE HELL. When we're SHOPPING, Matthew?! *Gasp!* I feel so violated... like my trust has been irreparably breached!!! (Gotta say, though, I love that sly little hint of shade he throws in like "It's like assassins are good at their jobs." like the cheeky bee he is. I love Matthew so much.)

    As a former RPG manufacturer, I can confirm the "Anything we make is mostly so that we get one." that Matt says. I have a copy of everything thing that we published, and the former President of the company has like three of everything.

    Just paused at this point, I might be reading too far into this, but jesters god being relatively new, theruzdun using false names, and the recent talk of the traveler being a cult, makes me worried

    I feel like Fjord should have gotten a tattoo too. Now that he's multiclassed into Paladin he needs to get his strength up a bit higher.

    So for point of reference, 21,000 gold in DnD U.S. roughly comparable to $3,000,000, depending on the calculations you use ($145 per gold piece I think this was the lowest value I could find). That’s about how much they got from Halas hoard.

    Sam: "That's an 11. [...] I rolled a 15."

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but dang Sam? How did that happen?
    Why is it a -4 modifier suddenly?
    It used to "only" be a -3 on Charisma, and with the tattoo, it should now be a -2; and on top of that, doesn't Nott have proficiency in Persuasion?
    It brought her up to a +1 modifier before, so it should actually be a +2 now. Not too shabby at all.
    Sam, buddy, your "11" should be a 17.
    What happened?!
    Please tell me you didn't fuck up Nott's stats when you changed them for the tattoo. :'D

    • Cpt Obvious1994
      Cpt Obvious1994 7 days ago

      Sam said that he rolled a 13, not a 15. He correctly applied the -2 and just forgot about Nott's proficiency, which is understandable since Nott almost never uses Persuasion. Coincidentally, the correct total would have been 15.

    "I pull out Molly's tarot cards..." - I got chills at this! loved seeing Beau choose a tattoo that honors Molly's memory, and her mentioning she'd been thinking of it for a while. fanart of it has been incredible, too! overall I feel like this was a big episode for her. at the start she seems kinda stoic (or just stunned) absorbing what they've learned about the Chained Oblivion... then there's the tattoo, giving some closure (maybe) to the rough feelings she had after Molly's death, then to Zadash where she's offering a sincere apology to Xenoth and finally getting recognized as an Expositor. I've always liked this character, and, she's also come a long way!

    42:50 "Should you be interested little Goblin girl..."
    Uhm... excuse me? Did I miss something or does Halas know more than we think? I don't think Nott ever mentioned she was a goblin? I think he might be fooling them...

  • Adam Schwartze [TiamatZX]

    2:55:02 Shut it, Fjord. She IS good at subtlety, whereas YOU had the gall to suggest that King Dwendal was involved. That, and her new position as Expositor gave you guys' story a lot more weight as opposed to if she wasn't. Also, it was a "sash" that she took off, not a "belt". She wears both.

      I don't think she has a crush on her. She just check her out. Besides how she knows or suspects Fjord has feelings for Jester, i don't think she's interested in pursuing anything with her more than friendship.
