>:-P Done it several times over the years. Spend a frantic few days getting stuff from point A to point B, and then spend the next 3-6 months trying to figure out which box has what? Good luck, Sam!

3-6 months is optimistic in my experience. ^^ Kudos to you if you stick to that schedule. ;)

Pretty sure there are boxes that we intended to 'sort' through when we moved into our current apartment 11 years ago. Probably an indication that any such boxes can just be pitched at this point.

So, how exactly do I process a short rest? I think I can get 1 hit die back in HP for it. I'm assuming in Saca's case that's a D8. Anything else? :)

Did Sam confirm at a short rest was possible?

You also add your CON bonus, so Saca would get 1d8+2.

At higher levels, you'll be able to use as many HD as you want to roll, but after a long rest, only regain up to half your HD.

Speaking of alignment, I put Aimee in as chaotic neutral but I don't really pay attention to that when I play Aimee. She has a personality and reacts based on her past experiences and upbringing. She is definitely more chaotic than either Dornikal or Varsk.

@Gathers

Just to add a bit to my concentration on a spell explanation (which wasn't relevant). When you get hit you need to roll a constitution save that is the higher of 10 or half the damage taken. So if you get hit by a goblin for 3 damage the save is 10, if you get hit by a troll for 22 (and you don't die :P) the saving roll would be 11.

I like the odds of an update in the next day or so. No worries!

Hope the move is going relatively smoothly.

No stress at all. We have a hurricane pointed our way anyway, so not sure what our power / internet situation will be like next week.

Saw that on the news. NWS/Hurricane Center was talking that it could be a category 4 by the time it makes landfall. If it does, don't screw around. Just get out of the way.

We're good and well prepped for it all. Just watching the tracks at the moment and we have a variety of places to hunker down in :) well make a call on final plans over the weekend, but right now we're just watching the maps and prepping the whisky and DND dice for when the power goes out. We're not super worried. We're taking it seriously, but this isn't Irma.

Oh no!

I'm glad to hear you're prepared, Thinks. But still, make sure you're safe! I wish you luck and hope the bad weather passes you overhead will no issues.

I got my threads mixed, and thought you were talking about us going over the goblin encampment wall. It seemed overly optimistic and positive given the slap dash approach we're employing!

Carelessly. In another game we are leaping over a wall into a hobgoblin run encampment, with very little plan after that.

ooooh, sounds like a splendid tactical maneuver. ^^ Here's hoping there isn't a staked pit-fall trap on the other side. ;)

Nope, just a few squads of angry hob goblins...

I know that this makes Balin sound rather mercenary, but a contract is a contract. This is the flip side of lawful characters: agreements are to be adhered to. ;)

Agreement was to guard and deliver goods, goods have been guarded and delivered. Letter and spirit of the agreement is met. Shopkeep is gonna have to pony up. >:D

But the agreement was with Gundren, not the shopkeep. So he's not responsible for the merchandise. :P

Also, "Equipment will be inventoried before payment."

So those kids better not try to take off with anything... kind of wish I'd grabbed Sleep for Calrick...

what kind of bonus would I get for boosting the voice for an intimidation roll? Never mind, I just did the roll without that and I'm going to leave it to Sam's judgement how impressed they are going to be by the booming voice.

This sets us up to never be paid if Gundren is dead... Not trying to stop the game for greed, 10 gold is chump change!
