xp for a Valdis recap.

Hero, can you post the list of magic items you still have and how many I still have to describe?

flirting yes... but for skillfully making a set of red padded armor.. It's worth double experience because he survived!

Three week to do list:

- assign who is going to be on which ship for the voyage
- determine what the magic items do and who is getting them
- Sas question the dead
- question the living
- discuss where you are going after you sell the ship

The first full day at sea after the encounter is the 5th day of the 11th month.  The crew is happy to be sailing back north.

During are journey to the republic.  We send Claude to see if his ready to go Dragon Hunting.  If he is not then we will set course for the eel people.  Is Camila teleporting away once we get to the republic because we are traveling right to eels afterwards?  If so then we send the lighting mage (forget his name) and see if he is interested in the job or I guess see if we can hire someone in the republic.


Before all of this Sas, Rin, and Amari should meet to discuss Chase vs Camila.

Claude's response, "huh, oh, I didn't realize you left.  Sure, come back soon."

Navigating from the republic, are the eelmen or dragon closer.  Where we go next will have a huge impact on the ship's mage position.

-- Veronkia asks to be part of the interrogation of the living.  She prefers to be right before whomever is the hardest interrogation, or after.  Playing the "good cop" to someone  bad cop.  Her.. gentile touch, and exceptional .... charisma should have some of them talking.  She will wear something like a Gesha without the face paint, but a form fitting traditional dress from their homeland. Carefully rolling a dagger in my fingers as I chat.. letting them know there is some danger there.

Rin chats with the crew, wanting them to make a knowledge sailor / history / warfare roll.  On our path, are there any battles/conflicts that might cause a higher number of wreckage on the ocean floor?  Salvage operations!  I offer a cut of the salvage to anyone who leads me to a find!

The Retsunagi are far to the north in the Godsea.  You are currently far to the south.

Dark Sea, the dragon, is likely in and around the Sea of Endless Isles, which extends from far north to far south.

Amare is not okay with this approach.  It is becoming clear that Camile is not okay with Veronica's continued flirtations and attitude and that she is swaying some of the crew.

So would Talp be out of the way to stop at next if we are headed to either of those places.

The best suggestion is the site of the blockade that was broken by the Iottians recently.

Of the 84 crew that were listing as aboard the Servant of Dark Sea; you have accounted for 29 dead, one given to the giants and 54 living.

Of those 54, only 11 are still belligerent  and look like they are going to have to stay in the brig and be given over to the republic.

Six are still so wounded that they will have to be magically healed before you determine what to do.

That leaves 37 in varying degrees of willing to help sail the ship.
