Possibly a Idiot.
Only in D&D could you travel to a library and wind up in a bath with an ogre.
Sure, we can make Ruz a Master Reader.All right - let's get everyone else introduced.
@VLAD the Destroyer & @Steve Gorak
I'd like you to pick where you are at the moment: The Hearth (the tavern); the Bathhouse; the Clothiers (a shop); or the Pillars of Pedagogy (the towers I mentioned). I will introduce you to your NPCs (Avowed Adjutant Guides - each seeker has one) and we can do some quick RP regarding your own mission in Candlekeep. Keep in mind, that the eventual goal will be to have everyone volunteer to help Hawthorne on his mission - so we'll need to work together a bit to figure out how that happens.
In your case, we can make you one of the guides, if you like. Feel free to choose any of the other PCs to be assigned to. Or if you prefer (and this may work better), you can be slightly higher-up in the Avowed hierarchy, (what would be called a "Master Reader" and be doing your own thing. There's a lifetime of reading here, after all. In which case, it's probably best if your character enjoys coming down to the Court of Air (choose a location from the list above) to engage in debates with junior Avowed and interesting Seekers.
I figured as much. Feel free to give me an Investigation roll and I'll just use it to narrate the finding (I won't make it take long either way, but there might be some comedy to a low roll or extra benefit from a high one.)I asked for the mining book specifically so we could find it and get the adventure going. I love inter-personal roleplay, but can do that in and around playing the adventure plot at the same time. So my vote is to just jump right in feet first and get the momentum of the story moving as soon as possible. Otherwise we run the risk of the RP petering out because nothing is "happening" plot-wise.
Take your time. I'm gonna work on getting us out of Candlekeep and on the road, but nothing will happen quickly. (Such is the nature of PBP, unfortunately). It should keep until you are ready.Hey just a heads up. My dad has been in the hospital the past couple days. He is fine and recovering from surgery. I just haven't had the energy to post. I'm going to need a couple days then I'll be back.
Ah, Ruznami rolled stealth before Pass without Trace, so with the spell, that dwarven wizard is damn near invisible! Like a rogue! LOL
If there's time, he will ritually cast Detect Magic (lasts 10 minutes) and Comprehend Languages (Lasts an hour). It takes 10 minutes to cast each. If he can only do one, which would you rather have up?
