Gah! Sorry about being MIA for a while. Between the Academic season and the impending Holy Week, my schedule has been PACKED and I've barely had time to sleep. I'll try to be more regular in the future.

What is this referring to?

"You see! You see! She thinks she better than us! This... this...ratcatcher!" Carroc continues his impotent rage. U'Tempei's words do seem to upset the crown a little as a few start to grumble but most of the villagers seem content to let strangers risk their life.
I don't recall her saying anything that could even remotely be construed as her being better than someone else, especially when she was talking quietly to her companions not announcing to the world that they should get moving. She would never think let alone say something like that.

We rushed away too fast for her to confront him again.

Arcata screwed up her persuasion check, which I stated in my post was because she came off as being haughty.

She did address the crowd at one point.

I don't think he's referring to U'Tempei's words, but rather Arcata's.

As Shaiuri said, it was mainly aimed at [-]U'Tempei[/-] Arcata. I was also trying to portray Carroc as an arrogant *^!# without just saying it.

Sorry if I cut out anything you wanted to add by moving things along. I find PbP hard to pace. You are not far from town if anyone wants to go back.

Dammit, I keep getting those two characters mixed up in my head. Yes I meant Arcata.

Arcata's roll was low but Carroc's was lower. Also people don't need a lot of persuading to NOT run towards danger.

Sorry for my absence - I overestimated my opportunities to post while on my holiday. That'll last another week or so. I'll get a post up in the IC.

I'm heading out of town for a week's vacation on Friday, so I likely won't get a post in next week. I'll be back on June 10 and start trying to catch up.

Trying to determine if Eowyn knows what this is and any special dangers (i.e. poison attack or any attacks requiring saves, etc.)
Nature: 1d20 7
Ugh. I wish Hermit gave you Nature instead of Religion for this character LOL Custom background? Just seems more in line with the character.
I don't think it would make a difference here.

Since I don't think you have used religion, and the fact that we are still quite early in the game, I don't see that change being a problem.

Sorry everyone, I have been a little distracted the last couple of weeks and have overlooked this game and my last post in the IC. Since [MENTION=4936]Shayuri[/MENTION] is still AFK I will post somthing tomorrow to move the combat forward.

OOC: Thanks, I figured my turn would be before Eowyn so I'd have to wait for next round, but if not, then here I go! :)
I had to think about this a little the last time it came up.

Since you're all effectively acting on the same initiative any time a PC goes down, the player would miss a turn. Around a table this might make an effective counter to "whack-a-PC" but the probability of being locked out for several turns seems a little harsh for a PbP game where several turns could mean a month of real time going by without the player taking an action.

With normal initiative the party would have a tactical choice of using an action to heal a PC before his turn and allowing him an action or doing something more efficient and losing the downed PC's action. That tactical choice doesn't exist the way I'm doing initiative in this game.

While I try to keep an open mind to different definitions of fun, I can't believe that doing nothing in a game you're supposed to be playing in is fun for anyone.

Well, that's a very good logic. And I was about to counter that by saying I can still play my retainer, but then there are only two retainers in the game (so far?) so that doesn't fly.

I'm good either way, I just like having clarity. Thanks!
