    We should decide which items to "identify" and which that are worthy of risking experimentation.

    As for future endeavours, I will put up a thread for the crew to brainstorm.

    Some items may be very difficult to figure out, but I can see a couple on that list that would be easy given some creative experimenting

    Does the Kracken dagger have to be "Identified" before being bonded with? If so, that makes 15 items.




    Renda retrieves the dagger from its hiding place in the cabin after Bahar leaves.

    drunken who's running this game?!?  drunken

    I kinda forgot about that one.  Well..... Candidly, it was not my intention that it needed to be Identified.

    study  Renda needs to bond with the Krakken dagger and use it for sacrifices (in whatever way is appropriate to his worship) to keep his "good standing" with Elyssyss to maintain access to the Boon. study


    I would say that Renda has already figured this out through successful usage

    Not to be greedy, but are there any normal weapons, firearms, ammo, or powder among the personal effects of the vanquished crew?

    Just checking, want to make sure we are accounting for everything. Renda intends to bond with the dagger during his next long rest.

    Cool.

    Renda is leveled up. Took another Barb lvl to get to 3, "Zealot" Barbarian path as Renda becomes a Fanatic of Elyssyss!

    Has anyone in our party been able to ritually identify items in the past or is this a house rule mechanic to use pearls to identify? Does this replace the more general rule of focusing during a short rest?

    If you read the Identify spell, it lists a pearl worth 100gp as a component.

    Identify can be cast as a ritual, so it doesnt use up a spell slot, which to me means it is free to cast out of combat if you have the pearls. The pearls seem fitting for the nautical theme.

    Can you quote the focusing rule you are referring to? I know about bonding an item during a rest

    Wearable items could be experimented with just trying them on, then if we are still uncertain, we can identify specific ones.

    conan helm
    ring w urchin
    snake ring
    ring w blueish stone
    sturdy blue belt
    amulet w elephant\rhino
    lion std leather armor
    red headband w symbol

    staff
    silver dragon longbow. *We can start by just shooting it. Who wants to try it?

    I know that druids and clerics have the ability to cast ritual spells, but am unsure of other classs. What I do know is that druids can only cast druid spells ritually (if we are playing RAW, hence why I wondered if this was a clever houserule 'metagame'), and identify isn't one of them (unless you say it is).

    p136 of DMG describes the ways to identify a magic item including casting identify, short resting with an item, experimentation, or tasting a potion.

    Identify Spell
    The identify spell is the fastest way to reveal an item's properties.
    Short Rest
    Alternatively, a character can focus on one magic item during a short rest, while being in physical contact with the item. At the end of the rest, the character learns the item's properties, as well as how to use them. Potions are an exception; a little taste is enough to tell the taster what the potion does.
    Experimentation
    Wearing or experimenting with an item can also offer hints about its properties. For example, if a character puts on a ring of jumping, you could say, "Your steps feel strangely springy." Perhaps the character then jumps up and down to see what happens. You then say the character jumps unexpectedly high.

    It seems that using a mix of this, we could ID most of the haul in one "overnight" period of "meta-play". We could select which pieces get left out and then you could let us know the results, should you want to move this along instead of taking a few weeks to role-play the process. My 2-cents.

    I don't think any of us knows "Identify.". Hawkes can learn it on this level up and cast as a ritual.

    Even so, we should be able to ID all 14 over the course of a few days with short rests and experimentation. These rules basically give you a "take 20" situation where if you have enough time, you can ID most any item.

    cheers I totally didn't know about #2, learn something new everyday! thanks

    it's up to you all, but given 10 pearls plus each person focusing, I think you can ID everything overnight, and we can move the story along.

    if that sounds right, just let me know, I will post up all the item stats and we can get on to chapter 2

    if you really want to experiment and play around, I am fine with that too

    That sounds like way more fun in a table top setting and pretty arduous in pbp. Let’s get the admin out of the way and get on with the story, yeah?
