Would you believe I have been calling it "The Golden Dragon Inn" instead of "The Gold Dragon Inn" for all these years because "The Golden Dragon" is the name of a local restaurant?

Understandable. There used to be a restaurant in my area with the same name and there used to be a small locally owned Christmas shop called The Golden Phoenix.

'Golden' seems like a logical adjective, as opposed to 'gold'. Or at least in my native Dutch; I'm not certain it's the same in English.

GM:So yeah, this is kind of filler.
Does anyone have any shopping plans before you go in? Maybe now would be a good time to have a discussion about you cover story? Otherwise we can get on with it.
Not sure what to buy. Maladiel just wants to give that impression to anyone eavesdropping, to cover up wanting to visit that ranch.

I don't think we need an extensive cover, because finely dressed as Maladiel is and everyone of us keeps together, it's pretty easy to come across as a fancy rich dude (or servant thereof) with some attendents and bodyguards.

Work is quite busy, so I'm not sure when I'll be able to post in the IC. Might not be until next week. If needed, feel free to NPC my character in the meantime.
(Sharing this to several games, so perhaps you'll see me posting quickly after this, or perhaps somewhere else and not here.)

I think @Neurotic is the only one left for any kind of possible prep work.

Actually, no I'm mistaken, Malix went first, lol. Still, last call for shopping if anyone has realized they desperately want something. If not I can get on with the main plot.

I've never seen the "ad'" prefix before.

The only ones I know of are "d'" which indicates a person with a dragonmark. and "ir'" which indicates a noble born person.

Normally, the non-marked members of the house just use their house as a last name, unless they are House Tharashk (who just uses their family names) or talking with members from the same house (which again fall back to their family name instead of the house name)

Just not having a "d" has much of the same feel of what you were going for @MetaVoid . You are a member of the House, but not a Dragonmarked member (which I believe is something your character is concerned with)

I plan on living forever. Or die trying.
I think it is a cool way to think about it, @MetaVoid, to make a distinction. I agree with Leatherhead though. Eberron has a naming convention for their Houses.
Lots of cultures added all kinds of things to the names to denote status, but usually the name without pre- su- and other -ixes is the basic member

So what is our plan?

Do we find a way to sneak inside, or do we just ask?

I don't want to assume and just take an action in the IC, so I figured it's best to come to an agreement here.

Are there other options? MetaVoid suggested asking. But not here. So...stealth?

But ee can walk a big more around, sering fire breathing lizards and whatnot 'just to see what's on offer' ask for price etc .... and get the DM to describe the compound s bit more :p
 


MetaVoid

Adventurer
I've suggested stealth (IC 122), which was rejected, and seeking employment (124), which was unanswered.
Isn't stealth the same as breaking in?
As for employment....sure, we could do that, but it either happens for you and we fall back to stealth/ambush (you let us in) or for everyone and we do the same as an inside job...but I don't really see Mal as a physical worker or Ozzar as good for anything but guard duty.

I'm fine with the group making an ambush - the complaining was just lawful good watchman meeting real life :)

It is a good idea, get employed, but we need to decide where to go from there. And besides, our cover story is we need mounts for some expedition, isn't it?

@Leatherhead real mission is to discover how and/or why the raptors are disappearing from the farm, right?
 

Leatherhead

Right. Some Clawfeet, the raptor mounts that the halflings use and hold to be sacred, have been disappearing from the area, and the locals think that Whitewood Ranch did it.

Eh, I thought they disappeared FROM the ranch :)
The trouble with PbP is that it is slow enough details can get lost or forgotten. Then the idea about the ambush of someone stealing them from the ranch makes no sense.

So...the plan is...speak about clawfoot purchase for our dear gnome? :)

I suggest we continue with the tour a bit longer. Maybe ask if the ranch has ever dabbled with magebred Clawfeet or would consider it? Act like we would be interested in purchasing such creatures to see the reaction of our guide. Some of us could try sneaking in after dark perhaps.
