The Black Heart of Dagon (OOC)

Recommended Posts

Okay, just wanted to clarify the timing here. Gretchen was going to be following Mr Smith and/or his trail from whence he came, so I assume she would be leaving the shop to do do. Roughly how long after his departure does Flintlock appear in all her boozy beauty?

 

I personally have no problem splitting the thread in twain if you're okay with it; besides, between her Flight and Quick Change, Gretch can reappear fairly quickly at the store if need be.

For the sake of a little drama, how about a DC10 Escape Artist Check for Shrike to contort through the door gap? Failure = noticed. Failure by more than 5 = noticed AND doesnt get through!

Quick note - no railroading here. If you want to burn it, burrrrn ittt! :)

 

Of course you may want a horrible tome of sorcery in your bookshop for future shennaingans! :)

Ooh, I just realized I made a tactical error! Can I spend an HP to say that Lynn gave Mr. Smith a conjured business card so she can eavesdrop on him? Or that Gretchen planted a 'bug' of a similar nature when she was in his room? The latter might be easier, as it might not require an edit of a previous post.

No need for an HP. It not really a combat thread, but if you feel it warrants it, go ahead!

 

To be honest I was vaguely thinking of Mr Smith dropping out of the picture, but this is a collaborative thing, so if you want to bring him back in, thats cool too!

 

Whatever you want, ill roll with! Improv!

Okay, if you feel it's cool without an HP, I will do so; Grim will also suggest a change of venue for reading the book, which might be fun.

Okay, I hope this is cool, but Lynn is suggesting they take the book to Rusty's Ranch, a bit of property her family owns in a remote corner of Jersey. It's not so far away from the shore that aquatic things can't show up, but it's safer for innocents while still having plenty of atmosphere for horrific events. Hope that works for you, or we can try something else.

 

Not trying to hijack the thread, I swear! :D

So let me know if you want a Scene cut: Broadly speaking I was wondering if Grimalkin and Flintlock do the ritual, and bluff Dagon, Gretch whips off and stabs the heart. Some low PL action!

I'd like a chance to set the scene at the other end of the teleport, if only for your benefit. This is definitely a time where Gretchen's flight and telepathic link will come in handy.

Putting Flintlock out of the picture for now. 

 

DC 20 Will Save please, or Shaken.

So is Grim supposed to trick Dagon into revealing the location of his heart while Shrike flys off to destroy it? How we find out the location of the heart is the one bit I'm unsure about.

Now Dagon is summoned the heart is vulnerable. Finding it means Shrike finding / going back to the man-lizard she stalked! She may need some of that powdered faerie dust to finish the job?

Grrr, can't delete that quote block from my phone!

 

Anywho, it's a good thing Gretchen dropped that 'bug' earlier, as it allows Lynn to spy on the freak! Of course, she may soon be too occupied to offer much help.

So, yeah, we're actually doing this!

 

Not sure exactly what skill rolls will vome into play, though I'm thinking at least one Bluff check will be involved.  She actually has the Distract fest as well. If it works, Gretch will take the opportunity to turn invisible anf slip away.

 

Oh, forgot to add a bit about Grim scrying on 'Mr Smith'; let me add that in.

I think that part we can hand wave. Bluffing a PL X is not really appropriate! :)

 

If its ok with you, I actually suggest turning the camera on to Gretch and leaving the bluffing part to imagination?
