Y'know, that's actually an option in the computer version of Temple of Elemental Evil... join the drinking contest and you get to loot everybody who drank themselves under the table before your leader passed out himself. I just don't get why entering meant my paladin had transgressed. Who says a LG ...

Ten bucks says it was really the posse, and Ben just knew he'd better take the blame when he heard Jack's loud laughter. Well, they would say that if I had the cash to spare.

'Tis an unfortunate fact of no-DM roleplaying. Most people are reluctant to force anything that would have a serious impact on other people's characters, so the whole thing just grinds to a halt after awhile.

Toma mumbles through a mouthful of meat, swallows, and tries again. "Looks like I've got first watch, unless somebody who knows how to prepare and package the rest of that deer wants to."

Toma listens in on Jake's comments with half an hour as he continues speaking. "Probably nerves, for the most part. Something about Vlad always seemed funny to me... and Brother Maynard and his boys, for that matter. Not a one of them were up and about to see us off. Maynard had his reasons for not ...

Toma holds a kebob over the fire, yawning while the meat cooks. "Can't say I've ever driven a cart before... I usually just walk. You wouldn't think just sitting while somebody else does all the work would tire you out."

Nope, sorry. Toma usually keeps quiet and listens, if there isn't anything in dire need of a level head and a monologue. Call it a professional quirk, if you can really call gambler a profession.

"Smart horse..." Toma decides to keep hold of the reins anyways; he doesn't trust Will's horse to be smart enough to handle more orders if there's a sudden attack. "What do you want to bet Will'll be back in no more than half an hour with a whole deer?"

"Just following the road until it gets us somewhere, stopping for awhile to mingle and moving on the next morning, most likely. It doesn't do to look too much like you know where you're going when you're on a job like ours. I haven't really looked at what's in this cart, but we just might be able to...

Toma sits on the wagon and clutches the reins with the ginger grip of a man tasked to do something he's never done and barely even understands. It's a good thing I never bother with a mount... but what were they thinking they'd do if nobody was able to sit in here? Lead the horses by example? Wherev...

Just to cause wild speculation (or at least try to): if mini-Penny isn't a one-shot cameo, she's likely a lot less like Penny than she looks. Consider Ben's posse: is he really very much like Sheldon ("I think Merry might have a crush on me." "HAHAHAHAHA! Stop, it's too much!")? Would he have trappe...

What Toma thinks is the gambler's own business, but his studied poker face certainly indicates he's hiding some sort of reaction as he makes a show of checking his crossbow over again.

Toma stands well to one side, wondering how it is somebody as old as Deac seems to be can be so naive and unbalanced. Staying silent and out of sight while somebody like Will makes sure the 'assassin' doesn't actually harm anybody for imagined offenses seems like the best bet; mere wordplay would be...

Toma's still lurking in the library, achieving nothing very useful except possibly providing himself a temporary bonus in Knowledge (local) and Knowledge (history) checks. He's got his leather armor, his rapier and his heavy crossbow, so he doesn't really think he needs to do much stocking up. Maybe...

Will (and Toma) is in the library, awaiting an explanation for Vlad's little hand gestures that he'd assumed would tell Will everything about what group he's talking about and/or working with.

If you really want to be correct about it, 100 gold for that full plate (more or less) armor is a flat-out insult; it's less than a tenth of what normal full plate costs, and that thing was custom-made. Unless you wish to plead the town's council for exceptional generosity, your best bet would be to...

Toma rolls his eyes, but keeps his mouth shut. Groups for defense, scouting/spying and attacking? Now why would anybody be reminded of other groups by that? Either Vlad knows more than he's letting on, or he's grasping at real thin straws.

Exactly.

"Your Majesty, the curse of stupidity has lifted-"
"Good Sir Bevis! May we ride the catapult one more time? Pleeeaassse?"
"-is beginning to lift. Once we get all the royal guards out of the trees..." I don't quite remember the rest of what he said.
