4E [OOC] Auction House

Thank you all for joining the game.

Besides running a paragon level adventure, part of the reason for running this is I want Dina to acquire a Rakshasa claw familiar when she hits paragon and thought this would give me a story explaining how I acquired it. ;)

Also as someone who has played L4W for only a little more than a year or so, I might not be as familiar with some of the NPCs that have been used, especially if I couldn't find them in the wiki.

Damen mentioned knowing Paelias, since I just sort of made up the name on the spot is it the name of someone Damen has encountered before or just some roleplaying tossed in?

Also I could not find any mention of Marcus.

Made up the relationship as it seemed apropos. Considering Damen is an outlaw, but a son of a House, Damen's been in trouble with the law for years, but no one can touch him officially. Nothing murderous, but certainly scandalous.

Nothing murderous? I seem to recall much murder occurring from that crossbow of yours my good sir ;)

As for Kane, he spent his entire career under one DM, the excellent Tenchuu, from 3rd level up to 10th. He has worked for Lord Byron, a minor noble from my understanding, having some interests in shipping and mining. He also has adventured with Kruk for some time now, although every other member of his former groups succumbed to the real life monster.

Kane hasn't had much run-in with other NPC's, well any that are still living that is. The bugbear isn't much for taking prisoners once the battlelust starts.

Oh, I tried to add Kane's info to the DM Only tab and it's a view only setting.

Kane, +13 Init, 88 hp; AC 27 Fortitude 26 Reflex 24 Will 19

I've been re-reading the character sheet (as it's been some months since I last played him, actually, more like a year or so) and Kane's somewhat stealthy, not like Damen's +21 or anything, but he's still a respectable +15

Damen hasn't been charged with murder. There's a difference. He's also not done 200+ hp in one round.

Don't let R1 fool you with his stealthy talk about Kane. The bugbear is a walking path of destruction. He has no need to be stealthy :)

Kruk likes to fight and then get hammered back at the tavern. He can take a beating.

Quick note, Beatrice's son is Tarquin Wellington, one of the lords of Daunton and a villain in his own right. Feel free to have him at the auction if you want, but please don't kill him off, that is Sharpe's (my bard, his son) job ;)

Kane's as sneaky as Kronk :D

Are people interested in continuing or should I wrap this up?

I'm not sure if people just aren't into the open-ended nature of the adventure, frustrated by the lack of results (some of which has to do with bad rolls at certain critical junctures) or if it is something else.

If people are bored with the skill challenge, I could just summarize that and skip to the combat. Though given your rolls as they are now I would have to call it a failure with all the complications to the combat that presents.

If you consider the skill challenge failed, then I would say: Proceed forward with what a failed skill challenge entitles, don't doubt it.
Perhaps my character is not the most suited for that particular skill challenge. Despite that I'm still highly interested in the game, you've proven to be an excellent DM, and I wish to keep playing the game.

It's not that all is lost. I never intended to run this as a traditional 12 successes before 3 failures skill challenge. So even if you've rolled badly at first, there is still a chance to recover.

There are a lot of NPCs to talk to, but putting the pieces together involves talking to most of them (there are a few red herrings). But I'm not really sure if people really want to take the effort to investigate. I guess I just expected more interaction than I've seen so far.

Delays make skill challenges disjoint, which makes things go less quickly. In addition, at this stage, I'm not sure we have actually made any real progress so how to proceed is a bit in question. Damen's in position to kill things when they need killing, so he's in his element. Can't really steal everything before the auction to solve the problem (cut the knot, as it were) as far as I can tell.
