    We're screwed anyway, this would be interesting. We might even survive if we aren't torched on the spot!

    1B, Hand-to-Hand.
    Think about it, bros, we have the most badass military order with us. Why would we study pansy-ass herbalism when these guys know all sorts of martial tricks. Why let this opportunity go to waste? Well, unless they'll tell us to fuck off, but I think we have a decent enough rapport with them.

    lorechecks:
    how many ashguards are there with us, cant we just sneak away in the other direction?
    judical system - magnets, how do they work...
    theology - overview, i kinda dont see a whole picture... orthodox/catholics?, incorporate the king/queen from above below
    government - ya know, the whole picture, other countries maybe, planet?
    why cant the ashguard touch us with bare hands?
    who is dhulma
    what is druj
    whats with the legate's moron? boytoy? bodyguard?
    where the fuck did teh blind chick come from? she appeared suddenly after we charred the duskhold

    so, again
    pilgrim/judge - legate
    issus/tits - church?
    why is that, any ideas on how to leverage that...
    ashguard can offer testimony as to judges character...

    get close to:
    ashguard - they said they can testify for the judge ergo for us too, so go play puppy
    legate - with our below average charisma? nah
    blind tits - maybe she can show us how to call on the sorcerors flame, lel

    should i:
    decipher papers - we can pretend to go for a shit in the woods and do it there... its just so fucking risky with the ninja knights
    throw them away - we can walk freely, shurely we can throw them away at any time
    give em to the legate - why? is he a witch cause he got bunch of fetishes and orcane tokens hanging on him?

    ie 1A

    improve skill
    pickpocketing ^^
    medicine/herbalism and try to heal issus for his inevitable execution?
    also:
    sharpen iron dagger

    just questions for root:
    what was in:
    fishing village
    ruins
    denn
    old tower
    outpost

    no soundtrack? how about guile

    The Ashguard sound like a cool bunch. So I'll go with 1.

    As for the second choice. I'd rather we forget anything ever happened back in that castle. B.

    flip flopping to 1B, those notes cant contain anything that valuable since they have been infront of us in some books for days/weeks, when we were at kurze's

    judicial system
    well, what is it? common law? modern day continental europe saneness? old germanic elders tribunal? eye for an eye?

    theology
    do the fluff dance

    If we study the papers and associate with the Ashgaurd, we'll be caught for sure. We'll probably be caught by the vulture too if we study around him, but I think that would lead to something similar to handing him the papers which would be:
    This part leads me to believe that the Legate is some sort of magiker-wannabe like Kurze was. Maybe not as well researched and more toward the superstitious side of things, but he still might want to know about the letters.
    @root, Lorecheck: Does the pilgrim recognize any of these fetishes or tokens? Do they look genuine or has he been scammed by some charlatan charm seller?

    3A for now, but I'm leaning toward 2A or 2C depending on root's answer.
    As for my skill choice, I am undecided, but I'll go with practicing our Pickpocketing on the idiot for now. Who knows, we might knick something good and everyone will just blame him for losing things...

    If I flop to any variant of 2 then it will be Jurisprudence. Might as well learn to argue our own case as I doubt anyone else will speak up on our behalf...

    As for skill practicing we sould really focus on something combat related. Apart for the flames which we can randomly throw we are dead meat in most combat situations. Swordsmanship for example.

    Well, that one, so it happens, is my original vote.

    However, if my count is correct, it is the only thing to have gotten two votes. As opposed to pickpocket, which got only one. So I've no idea what @root is on about.

    I'm still opting for some combat skills. Though I doubt the Ashguard would train or even spar with a convict. And assaulting someone is even worse than pickpocketing. I'll go with herbalism, I guess.

    Fleeing into the wilderness is not always a bad thing, I suppose.

    1, but willing to flop to 2 if need be.

    Also: good job on continuing to creep me out with the Kinfolk. We hates elves, we hates them, Precious!
