Time Between Jobs

You have roughly four months at the end of 787 to get anything done that you want before the next season.

During that time (near the end of it), you all read in The World Beyond paper about the appearance of the Stalker of the Dead:

"In the days before the Darkest Day, the camped crusader army of Falan was set upon the Vistrani Fell and the Fang who had arrived to confront Falan's crusaders and their half army of returned warriors.  The agents of death laid waste to hundreds of crusaders and drove the army off leaving a warning sign.  Crusaders reported violence and destruction and fear on a scale they had not scene even during that battle at the keep of the Skull Lord earlier in the year."

Ghanshuk will supply you with a list of items I am going to create and keep in store, as well as some new ideas he's working on.

How does this timeline match up with the Corsairs campaign? Natsu was tied up for a long time in lots of crafting activities.

To promote the faith, Natsu will hold a contest similar to Sunoco's publicity gimmick. 3 times over the course of the summer, a randomly selected person spotted by Natsu or his designated agent (Profit) openly sporting a Collector holy symbol in public will win 1,000 gc. I'll take out an ad in every newspaper in the city to publicize the promotion.

I had forgotten they got involved with them.  This would take place in the time right before the end of the last seafaring season.

I think Natsu had about 300 crafting days ahead of him from the point of corsair loot distribution. Profit was engaged in a portion of that too.

Figure out what you would have accomplished after 120 days and we will pick up at that point.

Didn't we have a few months between corsair loot distribution and the end of the season? Are we picking up 120 days after loot distribution or 120 days after the seafaring season ended? I remember trying to figure out what Natsu completed during the break in the seafaring season.

Note that Natsu' schedule is based on t=0 as corsair loot distribution, so it would be super helpful to me If you could frame it in those terms.

Also note that Natsu stands to make a lot of money from this seafaring crafting marathon, so he would probably not take unnecessary risks to jeopardize that income unless the payoff for the risk was much more significant that the crafting profit.

hmmm....I forgot to take the seafaring timeline into account.

This may mean we are going to do the Great Forest instead.

It appears a Rogue campaign would have to not involve Natsu, Profit, and Ghansuk (except for leading information).  The biggest issue there is for Hero, who has no other rogue character.

Thoughts?

If that's the case, we'll have to play something else.  The Rogue's campaign wouldn't be the same without those characters, and of course, having Hero skip a season for no good reason is not an option.

I have other character concepts in my back pocket. I can pull one of them together if need be.
