Since we've been kind of stalled level progression wise, I'm planning you guys leveling to 5 and 6 fairly quickly.

That should get interesting. All of Randy's fun stuff starts showing up at 5th.

Great, for all the trouble he caused a burnt up basement and safe is a good payback.

It would be nice to use that Mass Suggestion to get all the bad guys to turn themselves in and confess their crimes but I think the plan has changed to vamoosing, right?

Randy and Tess are waiting at the temple for us and we are all going to get the heck out of this side quest and back into the main one.

Or?

Either way we ruined Pemberton's day, hopefully more than that even.

Yeah the plan kind of went south quick. On the good side, no one got killed/hurt!

(Yet. The fire might.)

Guessing that D12 I rolled as we kicked it off determined where he was at in the building. Turns out he wasn't in his office of the basement. Still went went better than it could have.

It they run into the basement to try and save the items that is their own deal, not sure we can take the blame for their greed. Also a burning house makes for a great diversion!

Debating whether it'd be a good idea to leave a cagey note for Anders or not. Maybe...not. There'll be questions aplenty about who, what, and why. With so many items looted/destroyed, it'll be hard for them to figure out exactly what happened, who did it, and what were their goals. Or did they even make it out? Was the explosion caused by a spell or by someone goofing with magic items and triggering it? Anyway, can't imagine Pembleton or Mr. Gibbs are going to be in high favor after this kind of cock up. Pembleton just might go to Anders looking for protection from his empolyers, provided that he makes it that far. I'm kinda thinking that if he's in an organization a little like Spectre from the Bond movies, his career options are looking poor. >:D

Edit: And I also just realized that I probably just gave Spider a new potential plot line that includes recurring baddies. :roll: We may be seeing Mr. Gibbs ( ie "Jaws") again.

Too bad the cleaning lady saw us. She could easily give enough information about us for them and the city watch to put who did it together.

They may have the who, but unless Pemberton et al. come clean the what and why will be harder to determine.

And we left poor Anders, who knows why, in the lurch. Although, to be fair, Randy DID warn him to get out of town, and gave him the warning that we'd either succeed by sun down or not. So Anders is going to have to make up his mind about the whole thing.
This whole deal does make it pretty obvious that we're going to need someone with thieves skills, so after level 5, Randy is going to "expand his options". But I definitely want the planeswalker class skills at level 5. It opens up some interesting options.

Well...he isn't connected to us beyond the fighting in the sewer really. Hopefully it won't come back to him. My bet is most of the storm is going to fall on Pemberton for not better protecting his goods, and maybe the captain of the guard for not acting sooner to stop us/get us out of town.

They are actually just up the street. No need to go back to the temple, Kreldoran still has a high enough slot to cast teleport directly. With the chaos and explosion down below, and Zokk providing stealth cover, none of them noticed you leaving the property, though one was VERY close to spotting Randy on a Perception check. Had they given chase, as long as you got to Tess and Holger, you could have turned into an alley and vanished. Now Pembleton will be even more confused!

Your call. You (so far) stuck to the not killing anyone so at least he doesn't need to deal with that fallout, but he'd be left wondering if you all made it out safely.

I do like how we all so preciously planned all this stuff out... And then the moment the actual execution happens, everything immediately goes to shit. :lol:

To be fair that was Spider's fault. Our plans were great.

It didn't go how I expected it to either! I hadn't even thought about dooring to the basement, I was expecting that there'd be a fight in the foyer as soon as you stepped out of the study, he'd rounded up his guys after sending the housekeeper in! They had crossbows trained on his study door, but you never opened it.

That was a good call. That's one of the things I love about games like this. No matter how much you plan and plot and scheme, all it takes is someone thinking out of the box to turn the course of the game on it's head! :lol:
Unconventional use of spells and materials was something we used to do in AD&D all the time. Of course, the rules were more like guidelines than actual rules back then. They've tightened it up a bit since. :)

About contacting Anders, can we have a wizard messaging him with Sending? Like maybe Kreldoran?

Kreldoran would be willing, but he never met Anders.

Just looked back, this has been a year and nine months and nearly two hundred page shortcut through the desert!
