Malice of the Medusa (pt-1) [Manzanita judging]

Scared into doing what the others want him to Aedan quickly goes to a loose floor board by the bedroll. Lifting it he pulls out a small journal. Viktor wastes no time snatching it out of the man's hand. "What is this?" he asks.

"It is the map to the temple," Aedan replies. "It is not a traditional map the only way to reach it in the ever changing landscape of the desert is to follow the directions, I have writin there." he says a shaky hand pointing to the book. "Take it! If it will buy your silence, tell noone I am here. It will not be a lie for I will not be as soon as I can."

Viktor snaps the book shut and says to the others, "Come on let's get out of here." Noticing Reis's shoulder for the first time the young warrior winces, "Maybe we should take care of that first."

[sblock=OOC] Just some clean up (like pulling a bolt out of someones arm) and we can be back off to town to finish this. Anything else anyone wants to do before returning to the DTC compound let me know. [/sblock]

Reis nods faintly. "We should, yes..."

Seeing Aedan's obvious fear, his anger seems to fade somewhat. "Listen, we truly had no ill intent... only wanted a look at the map. We'll be off soon, and I hope no harm comes of it."

As he finishes speaking, Reis' hand drifts up and probes his wound carefully, trying to determine if it is safe to pull out the bolt.

Midias

"Oh, let the healing light of Hyrag help you." Midias speaks a short prayer, the bolt detatches itself from the wound and the flesh knits together seamlessly.

Following Midias's healing of the half-elf, Viktor leads the group back to the city. It's a quiet walk as you reflect on the past two days events.

Finally reaching the city a few hours from night fall you make your way back to Market street. Tired no one objects to returning the map and finally being done with their work for The Detirman Trade Company as soon as possible.

Worst off is Reis who seems to be getting worse, a cough added to the fever and sweats he already has. But he motions for you to push on and the rest of you do. Reaching the compound you are asked by the guards to wait, as the send a messenger in.

A half hour later a man in robes and a white turban comes to holding the second money bag you were offered upon returning. He takes the journal from Viktor looks it over and then hands the man the pouch, turning back into the compound he almost trots back the way he had come from.

"Your Welcome, hrpmh." Viktor says to the mans back. Viktor divides up the coins keeping Dane's and says, "I'll go back to the hospice tommorrow and check on him, right now I want some good food and wine. Maybe you should go looking for a healer Reis. Goodbye and I will see you at the Red Dragon soon."

The young noble heads off whistling a tune as he finly feels free of his obligation to the awful DTC company.

[sblock=Reward] 5 platnium dragons each
Sorry this adventure ran treasure light you were suppose to get half from Aedan's stuff after you sold it if you wanted it.[/sblock]

[sblock=clean up] Midias is ok to head whereever you wish WD I will get these rewards approved as fast as I can. Reis however is another story. Sorry Errandir. Ok options are to find a priest and have them cast remove disease on you cost: 150gp, sleep it off and see if you make your save in the morning (I'l roll that if you decide on it), go get a healer to take care of you and you could use their check instead of your save (I believe you are at -1 Fort right now). [/sblock]

[sblock=ScorpionRisk] If you are still keeping tabs you could auto fail your saves and your character would die if you wish. If not I will roll off Dane's saves and see if he can be saved. [/sblock]

Thanks for a fun game!

[sblock=ooc]Okay, I think Reis will go looking for a healer now, and maybe stay there for three or four days. If he still hasn't shaken off the disease by then, he'll pay the 150 gp for cure disease.[/sblock]

Your all Welcome.


[sblock=Reis] looking for a healer Takes most of the night to find a fair healer
saves vs DC12 = 6, 22 Heal check successfully treats the disease

Another 24 hours in the healers care will have your abilities back to normal. If you wish not to opt for this subtract 3sp from bill.

Hospital Bill:
Treatment and overnight care = 240sp
24 hour care to elevate symptoms = 3sp
Healer's kit useage (1 use) = 57sp

Total = 300sp
Total time = about 34 hours[/sblock]

Ah... I see, this one has been judgeless since Manzanita left. So let me step in to approve awards:

Basic arrow trap - CR 1 = 300xp divide by three = 100xp each
Aedan (Rogue2) - EL 2 = 600xp divided by three = 200xp each

For a grand total of 300xp each
Missing: time XP. LEW policy is that every character on an adventure receives 50 XP per level (up to 400) per month. Am I correct that no time XP has been awarded on this adventure? In which case, the final total should reflect time for the whole adventure.

Now, if I read this correctly, Midias and Reis were first level from early Oct'09 to mid Jan'10, and 2nd level from mid Jan'10 to late May'10. Thats 3+ months at level 1 and 4+ months at level 2. I figure that totals 12 level-months, for 600 XP. Add that to the 300 XP earned, and that should make 900 XP.

Let me know if I've missed something, then I'll make it official.

Thanks for stepping in to help. Those last XP awards "grand total" were only for that encounter only. And you are right no time XP has been awarded at all or I would have put it with the rest in the character tracking thread.

Everything is linked here http://www.enworld.org/forum/living-en-world/266143-malice-medusa-pt-1-manzanita-judging.html for when I awarded it, and Manzanita did pop in once and aprrove the ones I marked off.

I just need official approval for the XP/treasure awarded after those Manzanita approved and time XP. I wasn't sure who was to award time XP.

Thanks again,

HM

So I understand this award is now 900 XP, and 50 GP, each to Midias and Reis? (I don't worry about the AWOLs.) I approve that.

WOW THANKS,

So just lose the wierd 37.5 XP and go with 900. And use the Time XP you figured for in the above post? 600xp each?

If that is correct I will add the Time Xp to the tracking incase they need referance to it.

Yes. The time XP can seem like a lot; if adventures get bogged down in epidemics of slow-posting-itis, they end up being most of a character's advancement. But since PbP advancement is usually so slow, we figured this was necessary to give players a hope of reaching higher levels.

OK WD and Errandir you should go here: MotM 1,500xp, 100gp

And put the link in your character thread I guess, it will make it easier to tell where and when you got your awards.

(Again sorry about being a cheapsake, only 50gp wow I goofed, :eek: )

Huh. Wasn't it 100 gold? Because unless I'm misreading it, here it says that the party got 5 platinum each as pre-payment, and here it says that they got another 5 platinum each as post-payment.

I don't want to sound like I'm complaining. It was a great adventure, and I don't care much about the rewards. I was just confused, so I thought I might as well bring it up. :p

opps my bad i thought 1 platinum piece equaled five gold, (it use to back in the day).

I'll correct that as soon as orsal ok's it. But I'm guessing that it will be alright.

Sorry about dropping the ball on this. For the first time in 7 years, I no longer check this site regularly. Thanks for stepping up to the plate Orsal.
