    Since we beat Father McGreggor, we did get the lantern. BUT since we all died later to giant shamans, we lost the lantern with the giants. So, you need another group effort to go and get it back. This time though, with Opi on so we can have a witness to our deeds. (And get a physical lantern)

    Peace,

    Ah-ha! A virtual lantern gained and lost. Not sure virtual lanterns help Frank, but still. Valiant.

    Uh, do we get the lamp from McGregor or from the giants now?

    From the giants now. They’re gleefully coveting it, thinking that they’re safe in their secluded outpost.

    But we’ll show them….

    By my count, we’re done with the following items, listing holder and participants:

    3 Rope (Sun)
    4 Fish (Sun)
    5 Emeralds (Sun, help from Voran and Walis)
    7 Sugar (Sun, help from Walis)
    9 Silk (Sun)
    10 Sand (Sun, from Walis)
    11 Dirt (Bel and Voran independently)
    12 Sleep (cast by Monty)

    Hey I don’t see Port’s name anywhere on the list….

    I dont know why, I imagine Portales having a liking for Babycham (sparkling pear cider). I’m sure he would drink it from a c o c k t a i l glass through a straw – and have a cherry floating in it. { I never new this forum had a word censor! lol }

    I have mined enough copper to make all the shields. I can craft them any time. Tick them off the list.

    Sun has ginseng aplenty thanks to Tamar.
    Keli has begun collecting ice. It’s slow.
    “Bones” indicate ogre/giant skulls (and knuckles), not your run-of-the-bonemill 1×2 long bones. So–unless the Frost Giant King I’ve only heard about loses his head when vanquished, I think we need to start some raiding into demonskull basement and cold scale pain god. And, Voran, save your knuckles too!

    Note in this regard that Cold Scale is on the way to Cona, on the way to Cavern of Ice. Can combine trips. Also, don’t need everything for Friday–half per Opi for following Friday, so if we ain’t got ice and bones until then, so be it.

    Well done all on homework assignments to date. Given sorting Frank will have to do, and my standard late arrival on Fridays, let me know if Sun should offload some stuff so Opi can get the ball rolling on time.

    Err, we do need the lantern for Friday. Focus there?

    Sun will happily help penetrate either Father McGolgi or Giant Shaman HQ as needed. To the best of her abilities. Which probably means McGolgi would have to be asleep, or the Shamans not using the lantern. So, she might not be that much help after all. She’ll muck in, though, if needed.

    Yes, I think we better! I gather Opi needs / wants to be around for important stuff like getting the lantern back, which means organising something TONIGHT, if Opi is available? Presumably when he gets back from work.

    Durok will be tucked up in bed because I guess this will need to be a ~2am GMT start. πŸ˜₯

    Good luck. See you Friday

    Opi can chime in, but my impression was lantern will be consumed or used up at least in process. So, we probably ought to look at doing it again, tonight. Sun will check in around 9pm edt. Uh, pretty much same skills Dram-sensei offers to the party.

    No lantern in her pack, of course. Domf, pass it if you want, would be a backup option; probably out of character for Dram unless we set replacement as an apprenticeship task, for example.

    Now have three ices. It took me a really long time to find the cave today! Someone keeps moving the opening, I think!

    Stop that!

    Sorry late chime on this.

    The Lantern. I will allow Domf’s solution. If Dram has one, then McGreggor made himself a new one. Then there are two lanterns. Yes, I did want to be there as there is no physical drop from him for proof. After the wipe out I saw, it is possible and likely, but tough to swallow, that changing a mage like Monty out for another did the trick. I mean, Monty is the best mage out there. SO good his reign usually encompases the entire group and your backside sometimes.
    I am working on some stuff for work and was at a dinner the other night. So, my avaiability will be taken into account despite prior statements.

    Friday Episode 7 ‘Medic! Medic!’
    On time and on schedule! Have your papers ready for this ride, there is no stops and no restrooms along the way. And there is allot of water to drink and many bumps!

    Episode 8 ‘Medic-dues’ is on schedule and ready to go for next Friday!!

    Thanks to Everyone who has been attending! This has been much fun for me to create, present and watch. Without the dedication you all have given to attend has made it emensly gradifying. Thank you all!!

    Voran and Sun need to make a trip to Zairat sometime this week. Accompanied by Bel, if the wife allows. πŸ˜‰

    Anyone have any ideas for times? I’m pretty flexible this week.

    Sun has cross cultural and interracial sensitivity to offer, pretty good “social” skills for what that’s worth. Linguistic difficulty (in common not elven), but probably the skills wouldn’t pass through a translator, for either. Oh–and she likes Crazy Ivan, even if they’ll be talking to the Thane. No idea really what response her gender, race, or nationality would engender in Pellytes.

    She’s available generally speaking any night starting 9 edt.

    Opi–some diplomatic specifics. Do we need to meet Frank for any more detail on existing agreements, what we are supposed to and/or “empowered” to say/offer, etc.? Or are we basically just supposed to explain gripplis’ situation and buy time/protection to allow our quest to restore their trading potential? Will we have grippli company and/or seal to provide bona fides?

    Cheers,

    Gend

    The request was to arrive to the meeting on the Grippli’s behalf and explain their situation. That is all that is requested of you. What more you do than that is up to the situation that blossoms in the midsst of Thane’s boosum.

    If you want to ask Frank some spicifics of the trade agreement before going, you may. You don’t need to as far as Frank is concerned.

    I vote we walk over there without talking to Frank. Will make things more fun if the Thane starts asking specific questions and we have to improvise. πŸ˜€

    Good for either–let’s say Monday night. Saving daylight always confuses me. I should be available at 9pm edt, which I think is what Opi said, too. But he’ll still have daylight left…
