    but while i'm here i'm going to keep floating the idea of a bank robbery.

    There IS a bank in Hemlock Bay if you really want to rob it.

    it's a city that worships an evil god and half their guards are dead. it's like it's begging to be robbed.

    It's also named after a poisonous plant!

    At that point, it'd be evil not to rob it.

    You? I like you.

    I have no idea if lizardfolk play sports in their culture. Closest thing is hunting, but that's for finding tasty food.

    Are there any magic items that the team is interested in acquiring? Doesn't have to be something from the DMG, just an effect or idea that you'd like.

    I gotta figure out loot for this dungeon and stuff y'all will use is good to know.

    It's hard to picture magic equipment that would work for Tusk, because all my drawing of him are wearing nothing but bermuda shorts and his boarskin cloak. The big thing I'm in the market for is some bracers of defense.

    i would also like bracers of defense, but tank gets first roll.

    also an orb of dragonkind, you know, down the line.

    I am also a big of of magic boots and tattoos. Elidana already has a magical tattoo, but boots.

    Maybe a magical scroll that can become a forgery of something. Iunno, Elid is still a bit stuck on being able to go home even if she doesn't, so finding something she can use to bluff her way back in would be something she'd go out of her way for.

    Also Doggles for General Sparks.

    I was in a hulks and horrors game where one of the guys made a character named Lazer Hawk.

    and was unaware of the band, but somehow accurately recreated their vibe with his character.

    He was, the best player.

    Real concern: if WULFBLAYDE rocks as much as his name implies, Tusk may defect to be his drummer.

    It's cool though, I have at least a dozen other concepts in my character file who can be main tank.

    he'll probably be a huge weab that's into electro.

  • MeldingMelding Registered User regular
    so i was right about being huge.

    or, large i guess.

    also, an unguided wish is a heck of a thing. I got too many ideas. One thought is something that would let Elidana go home. Or, more charisma (devils can do that, right?) Or a get out of jail free card which could be useful but i'm not sure how good an incubus would be at doing that.

    or, show Tusk a Good Time. leave his soul alone though.

    Note that Chadrizzoth did say a wish within his power, there's a handful of things he can't do(he's no Demon lord)

    yeah, i imagine a Chad can only do so much stuff, but like what can't he do?

    could he get an document from a long gone nation?

    If the document exists, yes. If the document doesn't exist anymore he can't time travel, but he could create a forgery assuming it doesn't contain unknowable knowledge.

    I don't imagine it would, I'm sure people knew how the first tower wrote their treaties and shit. Just need it to say they want to open talks with Nahar'yul and Elidana can go back with it all "Hey i did your dumb thing, heap praise on me."

    Though I may joke about it, I don't think Tusk will ever actually hook up with an NPC. Mainly because I know I get creeped the hell out when my own players try to do that, but the in character justification is that he's unsure what might happen if his control slips and the GMBS assumes control.

    Unless he travels to Sigil and meets the Lady of Pain. It's been on my bucket list since Planescape was introduced to have a character die trying to seduce her.

    As far as me and the Big Guy Upstairs With A Really Gnarly Cudgel go, I choose to believe that you banished him back to whatever pit he slimed his way out of.

    Chaotic Good means you don't get in the way while somebody's gettin their game on. It's a sign of Tusk's respect for Elidana that he thought "if she wants to bang Boy Band Satan, she can probably take care of herself."

    Chaotic Good also means that when you horribly misjudge what your friends can actually handle, you pay for the first round of drinks.

    I have a long history of my players making the worst decisions about hooking up with NPCs and each other. But that's okay, because terrible decisions make for fun games.

    Chadrizzoth is a fairly chill demon, though. It's unlikely that any negative consequences will fall on the party for freeing him. Kulsha might have a few bad days.

    Yeah, he'd be able to provide you with an accurate and authentic-looking forgery, if that's what you want to use your wish for. He might even get original signatures from Hell!

    yeah, that will probably be the wish. It also either gives us a reason to kick around elf lands, or a reason to swap out Elidana for a while (i was bored and made her sister as a LG Eldritch double knight)

    Also other thoughts:

    Elidana and draconic appearance stuff, since she is supposed to have tell tale scales i'm thinking visually they become apparent when spell casting, basically the level of spell dictating how visible and long they last. like a level 1 spell they are sorta there but then a round later nothing, where as level 9 spells for like two minutes she looks like a half dragon. mechanically it has no implication, i just like to think of visual quirks.

    Also: how bad do we want to fuck over Kulsha? quiet blackmail or like, town square accusation? Cause, we have proof of a demon being summoned, a demonic orc, that letter she wrote that kinda ties her to the demon directly, and we did have testimony of an orc saying she hired them. We got options.

    Maybe Phillipe's obsession with assholes has something to do with all that Incubus blood.

    Also, how stupid of an idea is a pump crossbow? And what kind of stupid is it?
