(ooc: I'm here and ready. Odno has bought no other equipment beyond what's already recorded in his charater sheet)

Quarion Holimion, Elven Druid

Quarion purchased some new equipment over the week, namely magic armor and a magic darkwood shield. He also upgraded his bow to a MW darkwood composite shortbow and his quarterstaff to a MW darkwood quarterstaff. (By upgraded I mean... sold his old one and bought a new one.)

He has 77.18gp cash, he'll donate it all to the "pre-advance wand fund", assured that the money will eventually come out of the advance payment.
 
(OOC: Aletheia can't afford to purchase anything new. She suggests that we hold onto one or two potions of CLW as well as the wand in case she and Quarion both fall)

(OOC: Since we've said the purchase can come out of the advance, I went ahead and had Eanos buy the wand with his funds alone. I figured the math would be easier that way. He had enough left over to buy one CLW potion (which, since he'll keep that, doesn't need to be repaid out of the advance). I have the wand in Eanos' haversack right now, though I'm assuming Aletheia will be carrying it? If that's the case, I can delete it from Eanos' sheet as soon as it's updated on Rystil's.

Since the light horses are loaners, I didn't add it to the character sheet for now.

I'd also say Rystil's right, and folk might want to buy a few more potions if they can.)

ooc: go ahead and add the horses to your sheets. It is also usefull for loading stuff on your horse, keeping track of the mount's hp and adjucating the +1/-1 ability score.
 
(OOC: Oops, I was looking at Heavy Horse's (or perhaps Light Warhorse's, not sure) Strength when I said bumping up to 17 would allow it to carry her :eek: Wow, I'm impressed that everyone can fit on a Light Horse (carrying capacity 150 pounds). Does nobody else have Chain Shirt or heavier? I guess perhaps not with a Monk, a Druid who just upgraded things to lighter Darkwood, a Psion, and a Rogue :lol:

The cheapest choice that outfits Aletheia would be a Light Warhorse (and faster than the Heavy Horse too, so don't ask me why the Light Warhorse is cheaper) )

OOC: Now that you mention it, Quarion is 156.5 pounds total. But I think that an extra point on his horse's strength should cover it.

Quarion will also spend 50gp on a potion of CLW.

Cash on hand is now 27 Crowns, 10 Shields and 8 Pennies.


[sblock=SRD Question]
SRD said:
Quadrupeds can carry heavier loads than characters can. Instead of the multipliers given above, multiply the value corresponding to the creature’s Strength score from Table: Carrying Capacity by the appropriate modifier, as follows: Fine ×¼, Diminutive ×½, Tiny ×¾, Small ×1, Medium ×1½, Large ×3, Huge ×6, Gargantuan ×12, Colossal ×24.
SRD said:
STR 14, 58 lbs. or less = light load
Light horses are large quadrupeds with 14 STR, correct? So why is their light load only 150 lbs., instead of 174 lbs. (58*3)??[/sblock]
 
(OOC: That's a good question. Mayhaps the saddle and/or saddlebag is already included? I know I didn't count a saddle or saddlebags in my weight count, and you probably didn't either)

(OOC2: Aletheia suggests that Quarion lend the potion to someone who can't use the wand and doesn't have a potion on them, for fastest possible revive-the-healers action (saves them the time of rooting through your body)

OOC: Ah, you're right, riding saddle is 25 lbs., which reduces the load to 149 lbs., which is close enough. Quarion will need a slightly stronger light horse, then.

Quarion pulls a small vial from his pocket. He taps Mordik on the shoulder and asks, "Mordik, would you hold onto this for me? If both Aletheia and I fall, you can use it to heal one of us." He pauses and then adds, "It is a good thing we worked out our differences, as it seems we will be journeying together for a time. I look forward to seeing you in combat."

[sblock=ooc]My apologies that I've been the weekend without contributing guys. I'd like to buy a CMW and a CLW - 350g spent in total the last week for those. I'll also put down 200g for the wand if there's a need for it, with the assumption that I'll be paid back the 200 as soon as we meet our benefactor in this arrangement. GP dropped to 437 on Csheet, added CMW pot, CLW pot.[/sblock]

You dun need to worry about the weight on the horses. I can hold some for you if there's a need. Mordik pats his backpack and winks.

To Quarion he chuckles lightly, Let's hope our enemies don't have the pleasure of seeing me in combat. When offered the potion he adds, You can hold the potion in case there's a need for it. I have a couple I can use if one of our healers drop...

Eanos, human monk

(OOC: Since we were only really using the horses as transport to the mansion, I didn't even worry about it. Fact is, I have Eanos weighing in at 200lbs. all on his own, without gear. Do we need to have our mounts with no more than a light load on them? We won't get quite as far in a day if they're medium-loaded, but surely they're still faster than walking?)

ooc: ok folks, i'm back! Light warhorses are fine, so you can all note down you have one of those. The mounts won't be used for just the transport to the mansion.
I'll continue the adventure tomorrow. Is everybody done buying?
