That whole 'sings part of a song' could really mess up any hiding you try to do following a killing attack as well.

Didn't realize it was actually better than Gayle's current weapon. Plus she needs all the help she can get.

The musical aspect of it just flavor, and has no impact on game mechanics. You can still be sneaky with it.

Alex makes a bardic lore check (because of COURSE they would claim to have levels in bard) and says its name is "Lullaby"

Looks like we all get 10 free downtime days thanks to the midwinter holiday, and a sweet mug that grants us advantage on ability checks.

Holiday Certs

How exactly do we document this on our character sheet?

Midwinter mug Dex = advantage on initiative for first fight of the day. Yey, something over 1 for Lucius!

Are you sure Alex wants to keep that ancient treasure, that the Sergeant is expressing an unnatural need for?

I seem to remember something about avoiding ancient items because they create a cursed hunger that can never be slaked, but it is true that Alex might not notice the difference.

I've only dealt with certs in person. For my characters, I print the certs out on light cardstock and make sure I have them with the character when I go to conventions and so forth.

If you plan on using these characters in real life, I'd at least save the file somewhere in case you need it. Otherwise, just make a note on your record sheet about getting the cert.

----

As for the book, it's technically not considered "treasure," so the Mezro curse doesn't apply.

What books? Pretty sure that 25 Deception roll proved there are none.

That’s Alex’s Epistology, not Lucius’s. He figures “it” is still there, even if you can’t see it anymore, even if you can’t make an effective argument for it’s existence because someone both smarter and more persuasive claims otherwise.

Oh sure, but Alex's roll clearly applies to Brian.

Are we going to get a chance to get stuff like a herbalist kit or poisoners kit? Because I am proficient with them, but don't have them. Also, I probably don't have the money to buy them, but that's a different issue.

Anyway, one of the reasons I ask is that we just got those ten downtime days, but apparently they expire in February? So I want to make sure I can spend them before they spend themselves.

Hmmm, maybe Alex can forge some more certificates...

So this is half a note for Jason and have a reminder to myself of things I'd like to use my downtime days for (with a question in bold):

d10-1 Forge some of those Charters and then sell them on the black market
d10-2 Forge maps of Mezro (using Calenor's unwitting help for spell-translation of ancient Chultan language) that include indications of treasure where the Zombosaurus Rex is (because lol)
d10-3 Forge fake maps of Chult that are just accurate enough that I can sell them for outrageous sums of money as well as have a more accurate but still totally fake backup copy of our map to hand over if we ever get people coming after us for the real deal
d10-4 Can I forge a Harper's symbol somehow?
d10-5 Create toxins and poisons and stuff once I get a poisoner's kit
d10-6 Create antitoxins and other potions (especially fake and/or diluted ones I can sell!) once I get a herbalist kit
d10-7 Create an Artus Cimber disguise
d10-8 Create a disguise for these fire-eater militia people
d10-9 Create a Red Wizard of Thay disguise

Hi all, sorry for the limited posted. Traveled to Syracuse to visit the inlaws, which has turned out to be EVENTFUL--a five-hour trip turned into 9 hours thanks to some white-out conditions, and then my wife got super sick and the laptop was all germed-up by her ickiness. (And I tried posting on my phone but it took me, like, 20 minutes to type 20 words.)

But I cleaned a bunch of things with bleach, rubbing alcohol, and fire! So I'm back in business.

From how I read the cert, Matt, the downtimes days don't expire...but the cert to GET them does. So add it to your character sheet and you should be good.

As for getting herbalism and poisoner kits, you can buy them between adventures.

Matt, re: the list of things. I'd say some of these are very do-able. Any attempt to get lots of money through being clever would push this into "homebrew" territory, so I'm going to nix those. Any attempts to create cool disguises / things that would trick people with little actual mechanical advantage are in, though.

If I have this right, this pushes us to 4th level? We had some oddness with tracking xp more regularly/daily so I wanted to double check before I did up all the leveling up stuff.

Yup, we should now be at 2738, just enough for level 4!

Jason, since this is the final opportunity to rebuild, I am thinking through going back to straight cleric. I’m going to stay buff (so no retcon on the narrated shift to Str), but I think I prefer the casting.

I’m just trying to figure out now Warcaster v. ASI at 4, since my strongest spells are concentration and I want to stay in melee.

That's totally fine, Brian.

And that's a tough call on the feat v. ASI. Personally, I would lean toward the feat; that's a REALLY good feat for what you're trying to do, and getting it early on would be handy.
