    ooc: Note sure if I need to document (or have approved) the specifics, but Babette wants to stock up on some potions & scrolls.

Much as it strikes fear in my heart for what is destined to some day happen, you should probably buy everything through Rinaldo.

    (OOC:@Michael travel info--almost entirely complete, and everything stated by ajanders is correct. Don't forget that you get one free hour of Hustling per day without penalty, so using that will mean one less hour of forced march, which is always a good thing. Also, if you're planning on going by mounts, forced march is a bit sketchy because mounts automatically fail their Con check and take lethal damage, which means that they can only really be force marched two hours a day at full speed, the third hour they'll be exhausted and they'll collapse unconscious at the end of it from fatigue even if they survive the lethal damage

    Ironically, this is how my characters without horses can sometimes keep up with encumbered horses, since a PC can do a lot better forced marching if she makes her Con checks)

    ooc: Seems kind of meta-gamey to me. Besides, Babs doesn't know Rinaldo well enough to ask a favor like that (and it seems like he'll be kind of busy himself).

    Babette will purchase:

    With those rules I count myself lucky to be half right.
    One hour of hustling gets us to 27 naturally, so the forced marching just builds up a cushion or can be used to make up ground. That helps.
    Michael is also expecting to use cure spells to remove the damage caused by marching. I see now in the rules that if the non-lethal damage is removed, the fatigue goes away. The lethal is not explicitly called out, which gives me the sad feeling that if the lethal damage was removed, it may not take away the fatigue. It would be nice to find out this logic was not correct.

    We'll still need the cushion. Keep your lucky dice handy.

    (OOC: It looks like it doesn't go away by strict RAW even if the lethal version is removed. Having it go away is also a reasonable interpretation though. You're right that these rules are always very complicated. If you bring Gur, isn't he a level 4+ Ranger? That means he has the special LEW Ranger spell that lets you Hustle all day long)

    ooc: Lucien has a mount, so he can travel with the regulars. Devlin, on the other hand, will need help as all he has is a donkey.

    ooc: Hulgyr will go by foot, wearing his chainshirt instead of his fullplate. He also buys 20 rations or 10 gp.

    By the way, Hulgyr can still carry about 148 lbs before going into medium load. He can hustle and carry anybody who isn't too heavy and can't keep up.

    Tor, with his one level of Sorceror can cast mount several times per day with a duration of only two hours each. However, by over exerting the summoned horses tremendously and using them like tissue paper he should be able to make pretty good time.

    Ironwolf will use the transportation provided by the mages, having nothing to contribute in that regard.

    (OOC: Actually, I think this is confusing a lot of people--you don't need a mount to travel with the main group. It will be provided. In fact, you can't bring your mount with you unless you can keep it going at 60 speed after encumbrance, and then you'll get there later than Rinaldo's group and you'll be going by yourself)
