Another session occurred today, with only 3 people there
Things went very well, another two and a half days on the island passing, wherein poison nettle berries were gathered for Aerys, but not brought to them quite yet(they left all the NPCs at the camp
), read the Captain's log, ate everything in my fridge, found tracks from Captain Kovak and his lady, Ieana(who has plot ties with Vallader), and they followed the trail quite aways, being ambushed by cannibals(who they defeated, with a non-insignificant amount of trouble, involving Alice being carried off(Damn you 18 Charisma!), but managing a Shocking Grasp(
) and dealt 12 damage to her assailant, pretty much frying him. Then the deadly bells of "We have school tomorrow" struck, and we disbanded for the day.
The party have found a number of strange red pearl necklaces on the bodies, along with a golden longbow(from the Golden Bow of course!), a trail to follow, a pull back towards the NPCs, and all sorts of interesting plunder and intrigue.
We seem to have a decent grip on the game's mechanics by now, and the players are doing things like trying to Craft javelins and arrows and assorted leather goodies, which is great! Roleplay also has become more of a "thing", perhaps because of intelligent foes and high Diplomacy rolls.
All thats left is hope that, for once, everyone can make it to the next session!
