The Church of the Storm

Log 2006-12-14


AussieScum
(6:40:38 PM): Last time....
AussieScum
(6:40:56 PM): You were assigned by a prominent member of the local government to find a Cardinal Uloft, should he still be alive.
WotA Kano
(6:41:26 PM): ((Uloft. I think I took that for my kidney stones.))
WotA Daere (6:41:27 PM): ((We starting with the church? Which has creepy paladin statues in the corners now?))
WotA Dethel (6:41:43 PM): Ya know, our founding father's we're pretty bright guys...
WotA Kano
(6:42:11 PM): ((OK, that's gross...a kid at Wheaton HS near here was arrested for placing his semen in the salad dressing at the school cafeteria.))
WotA Jarek (6:42:13 PM): :: as we leave, bemusedly :: "I have a theory... something some of you could check out amongst the local rabble..."
AussieScum
(6:42:15 PM): Church ?
WotA Kano
(6:42:39 PM): ((I think we may be in split the party mode here))
AussieScum (6:43:14 PM): oh dear ;-)
WotA Dethel (6:43:19 PM): ((Cardinal was praticing a ritual, and was found to have disappeared - his men having been petrified, right)
WotA Kano
(6:43:27 PM): ((Steve, just to clarify...what country are we in right now?))
WotA Kano (6:43:33 PM): ((Are we in Deverenia?))
WotA Jarek (6:43:37 PM): "That which opposes the Church of The Storm most fervently are the cults to the old gods. The Vhedonstek (sp) are saints now, but once wielded more power."
WotA Dethel
(6:43:43 PM): ((What leads did we end up with?))
AussieScum
(6:44:02 PM): Hmmm, I don't recall, but I believe so.
AussieScum
(6:44:11 PM): This city is under Deverenian control.
AussieScum
(6:44:18 PM): But my maps are in Utah
WotA Kano
(6:44:33 PM): ((That's what I was getting at...are we actually in Deverenia, or are we in occupied territory?))
WotA Jarek (6:44:38 PM): (( Védoszentek ))
WotA Daere
(6:44:45 PM): "Veddy-whatsits?"
WotA Jarek (6:45:02 PM): "The Old Gods."
WotA Jarek
(6:45:20 PM): "Fallen before the might of The Storm."
WotA Dethel
(6:45:22 PM): "Old, old gods, Daere"
WotA Jarek
(6:45:34 PM): "But given a place of honor."
WotA Jarek
(6:45:50 PM): "Some still serve them, the blasphemers."
WotA Kano
(6:45:52 PM): "You think they were being worshipped here before the cardinal came back to re-establish the church?"
WotA Jarek (6:46:04 PM): "Entirely possible."
WotA Daere
(6:46:04 PM): "Nuh huh. OK... so there are still cults to the Veddyszenywhatsits? And you think they might've done this?
WotA Dethel (6:46:38 PM): "Very likely. They are still worshipped in places."
WotA Jarek
(6:47:08 PM): "The cultists would attack someone like myself on sight. Or at least, not reveal themselves. You two " :: point to the ladies :: " and maybe Axton might have some luck finding a few of them."
WotA Eirlys
(6:47:22 PM): ::nods:: "That's understandable."
WotA Jarek
(6:47:32 PM): :: to Kano and Dethel :: "They don't like Elves."
WotA Dethel
(6:47:59 PM): :dryly:"I was going to get to that..."
WotA Axton
(6:48:29 PM): so where shoud i start looking
WotA Dethel
(6:48:33 PM): "But then, my people are generally not liked..."
WotA Jarek
(6:48:34 PM): :: as we approach the Church :: "Now, the question becomes... do we separate here, or search the area together and then simply move into the seedier areas in 'slightly' separate groups?"
WotA Daere
(6:48:38 PM): "Imagine that." ::equally dryly::
WotA Kano (6:48:50 PM): ::frowns:: "I'm not *technically* an elf."
WotA Eirlys (6:48:58 PM): ::mutters something under her breath, which Daere might catch as "I think I like them already" (after the remark about elves)::
WotA Jarek
(6:49:29 PM): "But you don't include their icons in your worship, now do you, Kano?"
WotA Kano
(6:49:35 PM): "Well, I mean, my ancestors were, before SOMEONE..." ::looks at Dethel:: "...started doing experiments."
AussieScum (6:49:35 PM): (( *chuckle* ))
WotA Dethel
(6:49:36 PM): ((Remind Joe of the two things to check into.))
WotA Kano
(6:49:45 PM): ::to Jarek:: "Not so much."
WotA Eirlys (6:50:03 PM): "It might be worth looking at the Church first, then splitting up."
WotA Eirlys
(6:50:10 PM): ((what time of day is it, again?))
WotA Dethel
(6:50:21 PM): "*I* don't do experiments, thanks for asking"
WotA Kano
(6:50:31 PM): "No...but it was your clan."
WotA Daere (6:50:33 PM): "Yeah. I doubt there are any tracks or anything to be found, in the middle of town like this, but I won't know until I look."
WotA Dethel (6:50:55 PM): "That is true Kano"
WotA Dethel
(6:51:20 PM): "Then again, without those experiements, you would not be with us at all"
AussieScum
(6:51:30 PM): call it noon-ish
WotA Jarek
(6:51:45 PM): "Alright. Into the Church then." :: beat :: "Be on your best behavior."
WotA Dethel
(6:51:46 PM): "To the Church, then?"
WotA Jarek
(6:51:53 PM): :: we go in ::
WotA Axton
(6:51:58 PM): i always am
AussieScum
(6:52:03 PM): /bt
AussieScum
(6:52:09 PM): The church stands proudly in the heart of the Southgate district.
AussieScum
(6:52:12 PM): Its simple stone walls are covered in ivy and moss, after years of standing empty.
AussieScum
(6:52:15 PM): The church is a 60-ft square, free standing stone structure.
AussieScum
(6:52:17 PM): The walls are made of thick stone, the domed ceiling looks to be about 20' high.
AussieScum
(6:52:22 PM): The doors look very stout and are made of oak.
WotA Eirlys
(6:52:24 PM): ::gives Jarek a wry look:: "I doubt that "best behavior" includes the kind of searching I want to do."
WotA Daere
(6:52:31 PM): ::snort::
AussieScum (6:52:44 PM): The church proper contains a dais, an altar and rows of pews
AussieScum
(6:52:58 PM): There's a doot behind the altar
WotA Dethel
(6:53:26 PM): ((A doot???)):-D
WotA Axton
(6:53:32 PM): door
AussieScum
(6:53:33 PM): Four statues, depicting knights in distress, stand in the corners of the church
WotA Kano
(6:53:59 PM): ((You might be able to track a doot. ))
WotA Axton (6:54:02 PM): ((they have dresses on??))
WotA Daere
(6:54:02 PM): "I'll take a look around out here, first... I'll catch up." (I'll search for tracks outside the church, around the door and windows. Oops, I mean doots. ;-)))
AussieScum (6:54:11 PM): Two have hands on the hilts of their weapons and two are crouches, swords in hand.
WotA Kano
(6:54:16 PM): ::slowly walk up to one of the statues::
AussieScum (6:54:23 PM): They are eerily lifelike, as if real mean have been trapped in motion.
WotA Kano
(6:54:27 PM): ::and cast a Detect Magic::
WotA Eirlys (6:55:10 PM): ::searching around the doots and windows inside, to begin with, and looking for secret doots::
WotA Jarek
(6:55:26 PM): :: to Eirlys :: "Find a way to do both."
WotA Axton
(6:55:46 PM): just watching for trouble
AussieScum
(6:56:28 PM): There's probably some residual magic on the statues of the Paladins
WotA Kano
(6:56:48 PM): ::Then, slowly walk around the sanctuary, concentrating and scanning for any other auras::
WotA Jarek (6:57:47 PM): :: bow and say a prayer in front of the altar, then search about the area the Cardinal would have been standing. ::
AussieScum
(6:57:53 PM): Nothing else magical comes leaping to your attention
WotA Eirlys
(6:58:35 PM): ::raises an eyebrow at Jarek's comment, but says nothing, realizing that he's simply being ....Deveranian.::
WotA Dethel
(6:59:06 PM): :look around:
WotA Dethel
(6:59:59 PM): :Examine the non-Paladin statues:

WotA Axton
(7:06:30 PM): be carefull... could be a trap
WotA Eirlys
(7:06:36 PM): "Kano? Were you looking for magic?"
AussieScum
(7:06:45 PM): Jarek, you rubbed your hands over it, but missed it. Eirlys saw it jiggle. She must be more observant than you ;-)
WotA Kano (7:07:08 PM): "Was...still am..." ::still scanning (that takes a while)::
WotA Eirlys (7:07:30 PM): "Do you see any here?"

(8:16:28 PM): "Well, and the Baron's household, but he's not one of the three."
WotA Eirlys
(8:16:41 PM): "Does the Baron have a wife? Sons or daughters?"
WotA Kano
(8:17:02 PM): "If there wasn't an active church of The Storm ((duh duh DUH!)) in town, I guess I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people wound up worshipping the other gods."
(8:21:06 PM) You have just entered room "steveaccordlands."
GM Darth Scum (8:21:13 PM): *shrugs* "Nobles will do as they will"
(8:23:29 PM) WotA Axton has entered the room.
WotA Eirlys (8:23:42 PM): (On generator now .... lightning flashing and wind howling)
WotA Axton
(8:23:46 PM): ...
WotA Dethel
(8:23:48 PM): "Then we may as well go talk to the Captain & the craftsmen"
WotA Axton
(8:23:52 PM): 24 7
WotA Daere
(8:24:08 PM): ((Yikes. Do we press on, or try to reschedule?)) (11:18:11 PM)</FONT></BODY></HTML>
WotA Axton
(8:24:24 PM): 120 left to play down by 17
GM Darth Scum
(8:24:26 PM): If you want to call it till January owing to crappy conditions in WA, we can
WotA Daere
(8:24:39 PM): ((You two are coming with me to talk to the craftsmen, btw, while the others go talk to the Captain... if that's cool with everyone.))
WotA Axton (8:24:44 PM): up to u all
WotA Eirlys
(8:24:50 PM): (only a half hour till the ET people are pumpkins - we should be good for that)
WotA Axton
(8:24:56 PM): fine here
WotA Eirlys
(8:24:59 PM): ((that works, Leslie))
WotA Daere
(8:25:15 PM): ((Oh, I was a pumpkin two hours ago. :-P But I'll live.))
WotA Eirlys (8:25:21 PM): (once the generator comes on, we're actually in better shape :-) )
WotA Kano
(8:25:22 PM): ((Works for me...why don't we do that trio now?))
WotA Kano (8:25:46 PM): ((Just so they have a reason to be fighting through the storm. :-) ))
WotA Daere (8:25:49 PM): ((On to Ian Rafe, then? O:-)))
WotA Jarek (8:25:51 PM): (( or we could let MR and Curtis off the hook and let Leslie sleep... ))
WotA Eirlys
(8:26:09 PM): ::To I-R::
GM Darth Scum
(8:26:14 PM): OK, off to see Master Rage
WotA Daere
(8:26:15 PM): ((Nyah, I'm good for another half hour or so))
GM Darth Scum (8:26:15 PM): Rafe
WotA Dethel
(8:26:23 PM): ((yes?)):-)
GM Darth Scum
(8:26:56 PM): You eventually find the Carpenter to the Baron. Enter his establishment?
WotA Axton
(8:27:04 PM): 24 14
WotA Eirlys
(8:27:09 PM): sure
WotA Daere
(8:27:11 PM): ((Anything odd about it?))
GM Darth Scum (8:27:35 PM): You hear the sounds of a chisel being hammered over wood. A bell rings as you enter.
WotA Axton
(8:27:50 PM): ding dong
GM Darth Scum
(8:27:51 PM): A voice comes from the back "I will be with you in a moment"
WotA Daere
(8:28:07 PM): ::looks around while she waits...::
WotA Eirlys (8:28:10 PM): ::looks around while we wait::
GM Darth Scum
(8:28:12 PM): A few moments later a tall make comes out
WotA Daere
(8:28:17 PM): ((GOOMB))
WotA Eirlys (8:28:25 PM): ((:-) ))
GM Darth Scum
(8:28:33 PM): He's got an overly vertical face. He's mostly bald, with some Captain Picard type hair
GM Darth Scum
(8:28:38 PM): (( Domer! ))
GM Darth Scum
(8:28:49 PM): "How may I assist you today?"
WotA Dethel
(8:29:08 PM): ROFL
WotA Kano
(8:29:37 PM): ((:-) ))
WotA Eirlys (8:29:44 PM): ((did we have a plan for what to ask? :-) ))
WotA Axton
(8:29:57 PM): not that i know of
GM Darth Scum
(8:30:00 PM): (( You tell me ;-) ))
WotA Daere
(8:30:10 PM): ((I was about to ask you that... talk about the three lousiest PCs for a subtle Q&A...))
WotA Eirlys (8:30:11 PM): ((was asking Leslie :-) ))
WotA Axton
(8:30:19 PM): ((may be dallas will win saturday
WotA Axton
(8:30:22 PM): ))
WotA Daere
(8:30:24 PM): "Uhhh..."
WotA Eirlys (8:30:32 PM): "Master Rafe?"
GM Darth Scum
(8:30:52 PM): "Master Carpenter Ian Rafe at your service, Madam"
WotA Daere
(8:31:04 PM): "... chair. Nice chair, over there..."
GM Darth Scum (8:31:08 PM): "Although, you don't look to be the type who'd be interested in a new dining set"
GM Darth Scum
(8:31:35 PM): :: looks at the chair over there :: "not a chair for that matter. But if you have the coin, I have the furniture!"
WotA Eirlys
(8:31:42 PM): ::laughs:: "No, more a wardrobe."
GM Darth Scum
(8:32:00 PM): "I do have several I could show you. Or custom jobs as well"
WotA Eirlys
(8:32:04 PM): "You see, we know of one missing its leg, and we thought you might be able to help."
GM Darth Scum (8:32:29 PM): "Oh? Can you describe it so I can look at replacing it? I do repairs as well, you know"
WotA Eirlys
(8:32:37 PM): ::shows him the leg::
WotA Daere
(8:32:45 PM): "Umm... it's big... and square..."
GM Darth Scum (8:33:00 PM): *Eyebrow goes up* "Mine? Where on earth did you find this?"
WotA Eirlys
(8:33:18 PM): ((will be SM))
WotA Axton
(8:33:18 PM): under ground
GM Darth Scum
(8:33:38 PM): (( roll it as you wish ))
GM Darth Scum
(8:33:46 PM): *looks perplexed* "Under ground?"
WotA Eirlys
(8:33:52 PM): "Fairly well-hidden, actually. Where's it supposed to be?"
OnlineHost
(8:33:57 PM): WotA Eirlys rolled 1 20-sided die: 16
GM Darth Scum (8:34:07 PM): "Well, all my work is stamped with my brand"
WotA Eirlys
(8:34:09 PM): 27 on the answer to that question :-)
GM Darth Scum
(8:34:18 PM): (( He seems genuinely puzzled ))
GM Darth Scum
(8:34:47 PM): "Most of my work has been done for the Baron in the last few years. I've practically re-furnished his manor. He's very pleased with my work"
GM Darth Scum
(8:35:02 PM): He takes the leg and looks it over
WotA Eirlys
(8:35:04 PM): "And this was sold to him?"
WotA Daere
(8:35:13 PM): "Wow, I bet that's brought in a good bit of coin..."
GM Darth Scum (8:35:30 PM): To Daere: "Yes. A good bit indeed"
GM Darth Scum
(8:36:02 PM): To Eirlys: "Judging by the wear on the finish and the general aging of the wood, this would be from a piece no more than a year old? 18 months outside"
GM Darth Scum
(8:36:08 PM): "Most likely something I made for the Baron...."
WotA Eirlys
(8:36:12 PM): "Was this for him or his wife?"
GM Darth Scum
(8:36:16 PM): "Let me check my records..."
WotA Eirlys
(8:36:24 PM): "Thank you."
GM Darth Scum
(8:36:26 PM): He grabs a register of his work....
GM Darth Scum
(8:37:08 PM): "I made a dresser for his daughter about 15 months back. Very nice piece. About 6 feet tall. Excellent dark brown finish, was very proud of it"
GM Darth Scum
(8:37:18 PM): "Oh, the Baron is a widower..."
GM Darth Scum
(8:37:28 PM): (( the decription he's giving certainly matches what you saw ))
WotA Eirlys
(8:37:47 PM): "Oh! Is his daughter a youngling, then?"
GM Darth Scum
(8:38:12 PM): "Oh, she'd be in her late teens by now I'd assume
GM Darth Scum
(8:38:18 PM): He thinks a moment.
GM Darth Scum
(8:38:38 PM): "Yes, it's probably been 16 or 17 years since the Baroness passed away. maybe a little more"
WotA Eirlys
(8:39:16 PM): ::nods:: "And the family is devoted to the Church, I assume."
WotA Axton
(8:40:18 PM): is this her? show him the picture i got off the wall
WotA Jarek
(8:40:56 PM): (( hehehe. that's the False God, Deima. ))
WotA Eirlys
(8:41:09 PM): ((details - good way to ask!))
GM Darth Scum
(8:41:28 PM): (( Would the lay person on Deverenia recognize a pic of Deima, Vic? ))
WotA Jarek
(8:42:28 PM): (( Kano asked... I told them. ))
WotA Daere
(8:42:47 PM): ((No, he's asking if the carpenter would know her, I think...))
WotA Jarek (8:42:51 PM): (( I'm a damn good tour guide. ;) ))
WotA Eirlys
(8:42:56 PM): ((no ... no ... good way to show the picture to the man and ask HIM))
GM Darth Scum
(8:43:01 PM): "As far as I'm aware, the Baron is a follower of the Church of the Storm "
GM Darth Scum
(8:43:18 PM): (( Yeah, I want to know if the Carpenter would know. Probably not, but you're the Dev expert :-) ))
WotA Jarek
(8:43:28 PM): (( ah. hmm. dunno. if he does... he might be guilty. :) ))
WotA Jarek
(8:43:56 PM): (( he would need to have studied. and in studying, he would have learned... ))
GM Darth Scum
(8:43:57 PM): He looks at the picture. "Nope, don't recognize that one. But it's not Lady Lorna"
WotA Eirlys
(8:44:11 PM): ((sm))
OnlineHost
(8:44:12 PM): WotA Eirlys rolled 1 20-sided die: 17
WotA Eirlys (8:44:23 PM): SM 26
GM Darth Scum
(8:44:25 PM): You believe he's telling the truth there.
WotA Eirlys
(8:44:45 PM): "Well, thank you for your help."
GM Darth Scum
(8:44:51 PM): "You are welcome."
WotA Eirlys
(8:44:58 PM): "We'll definately have to return when we have more coin."
GM Darth Scum
(8:45:08 PM): He says to Daere, as you depart - "If you change your mind about the chair, my lady...."
WotA Axton
(8:45:13 PM): and u have beautiful furnature
GM Darth Scum
(8:45:37 PM): *he looks stunned that the greeen monster talked to him* "Th-thank you sir"
WotA Daere
(8:45:38 PM): "Uhhh... thanks."
GM Darth Scum (8:45:59 PM): (( Oh you had spoken earlier, never mind :-D ))
WotA Dethel
(8:46:05 PM): <grins>
WotA Axton
(8:46:13 PM): i have lived along time and i havent seen any better
GM Darth Scum
(8:46:16 PM): (( OK, next? ))
WotA Eirlys
(8:46:32 PM): ((The smith?))
WotA Daere
(8:46:36 PM): ::to Eirlys, once outside:: "Right. So. Next time, we figure out what to say FIRST, right?"
WotA Eirlys (8:46:51 PM): ::grins:: "Sounds like a plan to me."
WotA Daere
(8:46:56 PM): "Good save, by the way, I was about to get stuck with a dinette set..."
WotA Eirlys (8:46:58 PM): "This worked out all right, though."
WotA Axton
(8:47:03 PM): brilliant idea daere
WotA Eirlys
(8:47:05 PM): ::laughs::
GM Darth Scum
(8:47:33 PM): (( So, you have a plan before you go see Master Smith the Councilman? ))
WotA Eirlys
(8:47:34 PM): ((What, exactly, do we have from the smith?))
GM Darth Scum
(8:48:26 PM): His imprint on the utensils on the altar
WotA Axton
(8:48:40 PM): these right here
WotA Eirlys
(8:48:42 PM): ((As in, chalice, for example?))
GM Darth Scum
(8:49:08 PM): Platinum Pitcher
GM Darth Scum
(8:49:16 PM): Platinum Tray
GM Darth Scum
(8:49:22 PM): Knife Set
GM Darth Scum
(8:49:37 PM): Platinum Knife Set for that matter.
WotA Axton
(8:49:58 PM): yea took all that stuff.
WotA Eirlys
(8:50:03 PM): "Let's show him the pitcher and tray and ask the same questions as we asked Master Rafe - or maybe just one or the other."
WotA Eirlys
(8:50:51 PM): "It might rattle him, but that's all right."
WotA Daere
(8:51:05 PM): "Works for me."
WotA Axton (8:51:17 PM): just curious anything in the pitcher
WotA Kano
(8:51:51 PM): ((Nothrog blood. ;-) ))
WotA Eirlys (8:51:52 PM): "Good question about the picture, by the way, Axton."
GM Darth Scum
(8:51:53 PM): Nope
GM Darth Scum
(8:51:55 PM): ;-)
WotA Eirlys (8:52:05 PM): ::to the Smith, then::
WotA Axton
(8:52:22 PM): ((very funny mike))
WotA Eirlys
(8:52:53 PM): ::quietly:: "I suspect we'll find the same - these were commissioned for the Baron's daughter."
GM Darth Scum
(8:53:16 PM): To the smith?
WotA Axton
(8:53:25 PM): ((u know kano,, i might have know your great great great great gandfather))
WotA Eirlys
(8:53:26 PM): ((yes))
WotA Axton
(8:53:38 PM): smith sound goo do me
WotA Daere
(8:53:44 PM): "I suspect you're correct... but we'd better check."
WotA Kano (8:53:55 PM): ((Just so long as you *aren't* my great great great great grandfather. :-P ))
WotA Eirlys (8:54:02 PM): "Agreed"
GM Darth Scum
(8:54:11 PM): OK, same deal, you go to his business and find he's not there - you're told he's at home today. Heading there?
WotA Eirlys
(8:54:14 PM): ::walk into the smithy::

WotA Axton (8:54:23 PM): yes

GM Darth Scum
(8:54:57 PM): You get to his residence and knock.
GM Darth Scum
(8:55:09 PM): Shortly after a man answers, looking strangely at you
GM Darth Scum
(8:55:15 PM): "Yes? May I help you?"
WotA Eirlys
(8:55:30 PM): "Good afternoon. We'd like to see the Master Smith, please?"
GM Darth Scum
(8:56:11 PM): "That would be me. Bentry Rickard. How may I help you?"
WotA Eirlys
(8:56:30 PM): "May we come in? There's something on which we'd like to consult you."
GM Darth Scum
(8:57:23 PM): "If it's about my work, of course"
GM Darth Scum
(8:57:29 PM): :: he ushers you in ::

WotA Axton
(8:57:51 PM): enter
WotA Eirlys
(8:58:09 PM): ::Show him the platter:: "We found this, and were wondering if you could identify the owner."
WotA Dethel
(8:58:26 PM): brb
GM Darth Scum
(8:58:43 PM): "Hmmm....."
GM Darth Scum
(8:58:56 PM): "I don't make a lot of platinum pieces. A pricey material"
WotA Eirlys
(8:59:09 PM): ::nods::
GM Darth Scum
(8:59:54 PM): "I did make a set for the Baron. And the other members of the council for that matter"
WotA Eirlys
(9:00:14 PM): "Could you tell which set this was a part of?"
GM Darth Scum
(9:00:29 PM): "Unfortunately not"
GM Darth Scum
(9:00:41 PM): "I didn't quite customize them that much" *smiles*
WotA Eirlys
(9:00:54 PM): ::returns his smile:: "I see...."
WotA Daere
(9:00:56 PM): "How long ago did you make it, do you remember?"
WotA Axton (9:01:03 PM): and u did not number them
GM Darth Scum
(9:01:09 PM): To Axton: "No"
GM Darth Scum

WotA Eirlys (9:01:56 PM): SM 27
GM Darth Scum
(9:01:58 PM): He seems to be telling the truth....
WotA Eirlys
(9:02:15 PM): ::nods to Acton to show the picture:: "Do you know who this is, sir?"
WotA Eirlys
(9:02:20 PM): (er, Axton)
GM Darth Scum

WotA Eirlys

WotA Axton
(9:06:43 PM): not from me SIR
WotA Eirlys
(9:07:01 PM): - The wardrobe was made for the Baron's daughter, a lass of about 17 years.
WotA Daere

WotA Daere (9:07:16 PM): 'Nuff said. :-P
WotA Eirlys (9:07:23 PM): - the utensils were made for the Baron, and for the Council.
GM Darth Scum
(9:07:42 PM): OK, we'll wrap it there. Next time, we'll let the other three act and you three can sit around and watch :-)
WotA Eirlys (9:07:46 PM): - neither man appears to know about the cult, and therefore are probably not involved.
WotA Daere
(9:07:51 PM): Sorry about that, guys...
WotA Eirlys (9:07:56 PM): - net: agree with Daere :-)
WotA Axton
(9:08:17 PM): sounds good to me
