    Didn't read the story behind it - agree that the trafficking charges are serious and will likely have consequences - as an "example". Still won't change his financial status, he'll be out of white-collar prison in no time.

    Well done Alan!

    Nobody ever said that rich people are any smarter than the rest of us. Just because he could afford a $10,000 a hour call girl doesn't mean that has the "thrill" he was looking for.

    Matt.... love you bro but "lighten up Francis"... rich people have always done this shit. Doesn't change the fact that now they get caught and there are consequences. To say nothing of what it does to his reputation (and the fact that he was one of the few supporters of Commissioner Goodell)

    hey,

    Alan sent me a message tonight that he has a new phone but can't seem to reset or sign into the site. Anyone know what to tell him? (he said he let Chris and Matt know as well).

    I never bother with my phone and this site, so I have no idea what the issue might be.

    the loot is a bit Monty Haul, but after reading through the treasure section more, it seemed like the party was very low for being 9th going on 10th level, so I doubled it to compensate for the lack of starting magic items


    the other main rewards have been, and continue to be, the Boons from the Gods for roleplaying:


    Renda - Elyss-yss dark blessing

    Hawkes - Unfeather, pseudodragon familiar

    Crispy - Heart of Fire

    Sjon - needs to visit with Ahmona Ahna


    **  study   **
    Sam - 3-YOR (though I know dealing with a companion can be a pain, so I am happy to substitute that boon for something more user-friendly)

    Josh - let me know if you want to keep 3-YOR and deal with a companion or substitute it

    yeah, let's discuss that one...

    what do you think an adequate replacement would be? I had thought about a Familiar when it was apparent that Sam got more spells for going up a level (did that happen BTW?)

    I'm open to suggestions...

    yes, everyone goes up to 10th level, which you can do at anytime, though the encounter still has a bit of roleplaying left


    to be fair, nobody else got a choice in the matter lol!

    I do have something else in mind for Sam that fits his dedication to the shadows and efforts he has made throughout the adventure Suspect

    so you have to take it or leave, sight unseen, pardon the stealth pun

    Shadow Step

    When you are in dim light or darkness, you can use a bonus action to expend one spell slot to teleport up to 30 feet (per spell level) to an unoccupied space you can see that is also in dim light or darkness. You then have advantage on the first melee attack you make before the end of the turn.

    it is basically a misty step, but you can only use it when you would normally be able to hide, basically enough shadows to step into and out of

    the Shadow Monk can use it freely, but that is a 6th level ability for them, so I wanted it to cost a resource, but I figured spell slots were better than just saying once per day or something

    and I thank you for that. lol... the once a day thing gets a bit tedious after a while (so does the annoying requirements for Arcane Trickster... I really wanted Spider Climb this level but he can't take it... the rules for that are really poorly written IMHO, but so it goes)

    I don't think anyone actually planned anything, speaking for myself, I wasn't sure when you were intending to switch.

    I'd like to let the "new guys" take a shot if they want it, but can run a few encounters if needed

    Matt - where did you post that map you made for the region?


    some current story hooks so far....

    search for Frostheim, ancestral home of Capt Gundren  
    search for sunken treasure of Frostheim, plundered by Rogan and lost at sea
    go to dwarven Calliphate to look for clues as to location of Frostheim

    other stuff from character backgrounds


    I am fine with anything as a player

    The crew finds themselves back to their ship. Having divided their loot, a meal is served in the mess. The bounty of Amona Anha sustains them, along with any other provisions they wish to prepare for their victory feast. During the meal and between flagons of ale, Sjon opens the book he claimed. When it was discovered he explained that it was written in Druidic, an ancient language nearly lost to the world. He turns the pages slowly at first, having to spend time to reacquaint himself with the forgotten symbols. As the feast continues, he begins to feverishly flip back and forth from beginning to end as if searching for the conclusion of a story being told. He waits for a moment where he can excuse himself without notice, and disappears from the merriment.

    What of the rest of yas? I will post a new thread once the crew has decided its next move.

    There is a thread for discussion of our next target. It’s called Next Target. Inventive, huh?

    Crispy is unusually quiet and pensive. His exchange with Charr, and the boon it produced, has left him deep in contemplation. He will take up his usual position on the foredeck and accept whatever course the crew charts.

    Kruhl savors the long-dreamed of moment: freedom.

    Kruhl tastes each item with enthusiasm. Salted pork, pickled fish, sugar, bread, nuts... so many textures, flavors!

    Having lived in near isolation for years, he his enamored with his new friends. He raises many toasts to his liberators, the open sea, the island goddess, good food, good ale... too many toasts.

    Kruhl has lost his sea legs and his stomach for ale. The bobbing of the ship and the booze takes its toll. His insides flip upside down and flail about like a tortoise in the sun. He starts sweating uncomfortably. His head spirals into anti-social paranoia. "The captain doesn't like me, he thinks me a murderer. The 2 elves are clearly spies of Ikkinid, clever to use a half-breed to dissuade suspicions. The reptilians will eat me in my sleep, they have a predatory look in their slanted eyes..."

    Happy commraderie twists their smiles into leering mockery. Kruhl's heart beats faster as his booze-soaked mind betrays logic. Did the Ikkinids send this crew to rescue him? False hope, a taste of escape... it would crush the spirit to learn it was a betrayal. Is the captain going for his blade?!?

    Kruhl quickly stands and makes a feeble excuse, " I... need some air." He stumbles up to deck. The cold night helps calm his anxiety. He stares out across the sea. It is peaceful at first. His eyes search for a reference point, but there is no horizon in the dark, no land to settle his vision. Bile mixed with ale rises to his mouth. His stomach protests the bloated feeling until he purges over the side.

    He flops to the deck, exhausted. He tries to enjoy his first view of the stars, but they pinwheel above him. Closing his eyes is worse, the spins take hold again. He tries to stand and make for the railing, but manages only to find his knees before his guts punch again, an uppercut from the inside.

    Kruhl passes out on the cold wooden planks, drenched in sweat and vomit.

    There’s a map in the Next Target thread as well...

    Hawkes cannot trade with Elves and The Caliphate will likely sell him to the highest bidder. “We can trade with Dwarves or pirates. Either will be shrewd. What says the crew?”

    Having removed every last vestige of the ships name in ceremonious silence and purged its logs to only his memory, Hawkes needs to make a port where he can name her. “Now you may debate the naming of the ship, Sam.”

    Chris stated that the area was similar in scale to the Caribean - so I sized this as closely as possible. Each hex is approx 25 miles across.

    See this link for travel times/speeds under sail. We should be able to get to most locations in 2-5 days. Additional research suggests that 120 miles in a day is a realistic average under sail.

    On the drill-down:

    "Port Claw" is where we started and is labeled in "red" as "hostile".
    "Amon Anha" is where we are and is labeled in "green" as  "friendly".
    "Ikkinid Empire" is shaded in red as "hostile"
    "Sultanate" is shaded in red as "hostile".
    "Azteca" is shaded in yellow as "caution" because we are pirates/outlaws.

    The crew's path so far is notated with a blue path.

    On the regional map (click on the map to open in full size):

    Mint green = Insect people
    Purple = Dwarven homeland
    Orange = Orc tribes and assorted goblinoids

    Abigail is intrigued by Sjon's behavior. "Maybe someone should take a look at that book?"

    Great map work, Matt!

    My only note would be a reference to the end of "Revenge is a dish best served with cold cuts", Hawkes and Bahar came to an understanding as businessmen. Hawkes paid Bahar an extra 50gp as a retainer fee, which "Bah" used to buy the Siren's Call for his tiefling lover Shanti. Bahar was allowed to keep his gold as well.

    Port Claw is at least yellow, with the possibility of green, depending on futute negotiations

    I think we were just RPing while waiting for the GM - Sjon said he needed time to finish reading the book.

    Yeah, that was my way of removing Sjon from the action until GM rotates again. I should've been more clear.

    As Josh knows, Wish you were here is one of my favorite songs. I was driving along listening to it on the radio today and it dawned on me that it would make a really good country song - fiddle instead of violin, slow it down, etc

    Rodney Carrington's cover of "Gin and Juice" also qualifies

    and is better than the original by Snoop




    and of course JC's theme song, "I ain't as good as I once was" by Toby Keith

    agreed!

    I'll give Abrams the benefit of the doubt on Episode 9; the interview I watched with him this morning give me hope that it will be better than the train-wreck that was Last Jedi (except for the parts with Luke and Yoda)

    Question for mapping encounters. What is the best height:width ratio for forum use. I have my map split in half and want to post them consecutively to display them seamlessly, as suggested.

    Also, is there an easy way to drop in the first column and top row for grid marking? I drew in a table for the top and manually spaced my numbers, but the first column was a pain in the dick to get the lettering to line up to the grid. Any pointers?

    I think I can manage the mapping after all.
