    That's what people said after we didn't try to kill Faceless. :roll:

    That would have went about as well as Lady Grey's attempt, except that we were amused by it enough to leave her alive. :lol:

    Incidentally, first thing we will need to teach her in her mercenary captain career is how NOT to be a hero.

    Of course, that coming from the mouths of the Heroes of the Kingdom might sound a bit hypocritical. :lol:

    Oh, what would I give only not to be one. :negative:

    I like the idea of us crafting monstrous hybrids... Blink dogs, displacer beasts, owlbears. Flumphs...

    Yeah! Let's do it! :yeah:

    Flumphs? I like flumphs.

    But what do you craft them from?

    Tableware and mushrooms. I think. We'll probably need to experiment a bit...

    What? We're mages, crossbreeding inanimate objects and fungi should not pose a problem to us.

    I have no love for them, but that's still not a thing to kill for.

    Then again, we've killed for less, though indirectly. :salute:

    Fangshi, can Lyssa tell us what item can be used to make it possible for us to communicate with elephants, and how much time would it take?

    Can we obtain such an item from the animals themselves without harming them?

    Did i was only one who thought about this? :lol:
    Sir Bedevere Lyssa: How do know so much about swallows birds?

    King Arthur Derryth รณ Foghladh: Well, you have to know these things when you're a king mage, you know.

    Never be a hero, even if you wont be a hero you might get everything related to title. Look at us. You will end up in boring party with people you dont know and probably dont wish to cross patch with in first place. First time we met those people we wanted to burn them after half of party. :roll: Still if it pay bills its ok. If you dont earn from it enough find better workplace.
    Well there are people who would disagree. Still some kind of enchantment linking pain of animal to trainer. Hmmm sound like case of poetic justice. :obviously:

    Any item that is from the elephants (or an elephant in general) will work. The spell can be done within an hour once the item is procured.

    You sure can, she can make an elephant hair bracelet or two for you. She will just need to collect the hair they shed though that might be a bit difficult with their handlers around all the time.

    I have to admit, I was tempted. ;)

    Why?

    Weren't we appointed as commanders of our squad? Why can't we simply order them around? The King is paying them salary, and we are his representatives.

    By the way guys. I just find out other goal to our "must do" list.

    'Punish the Traitor!' - find and decide what to do with real Rand.

    Good questions.

    By the way, Fangshi. Can you link our goal list on Extras in first post? Just in case.

    Well, it is weird. Unless you want them to know what you are doing she will have to be discrete and it is not that easy to be discrete while following elephants around and collecting hair from them.

    To be honest the handlers don't really like having Lyssa snooping around their animals to begin with. She is always giving them dirty looks and they have started to whisper amongst themselves that she is some sort of witch... :lol:

    Decide?

    I'm not taking chances even to interrogate the guy.

    I am going to talk to their animals. Mage stuff.

    Is there a problem with that?

    Are you asking them or telling them? :lol:

    They are just regular humans, they can not actually stop you but they would prefer if you didn't and they will make a report to their leaders when they get back if you do.


    I am thinking of closing the votes in 24hrs or so. Just a reminder for anyone that want to vote and has not done so yet.

    We never met elephant. Bring us this amount of hair for experimentation, mumble something about elephant durability and strength. When we get the bracelets put one on, asking Thais before to cast warrior mask. After spell triggers say something like success. Remember faces of animal handlers to laugh at later.

    If you tell them that then they will want to sell you the hair. If their elephants are useful as spell components they will expect to make a profit off of them as that is not part of your standing contract with them.

    I assume that we have had enough opportunities to do so, so yes, I am telling them.

    Sure, knock yourselves out.

    Though it would depend on what kind of stuff makes it into the report. Some things are state secrets, after all, and you do not want to be caught gossiping about that.

    That we are able to talk to animals is hardly anything special considering all the other rumors circulating about us.

    Yeah, 1WP would cover it if you want and they will even keep it from their masters since they will want to pocket the money.

    If you want I can work out a question for this and put it to a vote.

    Don't know about that since what I am going to do next would probably make it into the report anyway.

    But I am not very stingy with our pennies. Just remember that 2 more of these jokes will make us go broke. :lol:

    Why can't the mice be useful and collect the hair?

    Because they will terrify the elephants? :smug:

    Actually that makes sense so your options are:

    6. Elephant Hair Collection: You might want to make an item that will allow you to talk to the Hound's elephants. Lyssa can manage this but she will need something taken from the elephants to work with. Hair would be easiest. You decide to:

    A) Not bother with this, it is not worth the time/effort/resources.

    B) Have Lyssa collect the hair. When the Hounds ask why you will tell them that you wish to work a magic spell that will let you talk to the elephants. They will not approve but they can not stop you and they are under contract. They will likely inform their masters when you get back though.

    C) Have Lyssa collect the hair. When the Hounds ask why you will tell them that you wish to work a magic spell that will let you talk to the elephants. You will offer to buy the hair from the Hounds for 1WP. The Hounds will likely not inform their masters of this arrangement should they accept as they will want to keep all the money for themselves.

    D) Have Martin and the mice/rats collect the hair. They should be able to do it discretely without anyone noticing or caring if they do. The Hounds will not be happy should they find out what you are doing though.

    E) freeform

    Edit:

    Sorry about that, there were two C options. Fixed now.

    Eh. Give them their 1 WP. We'll murder them and sell their equipment later anyway.

    6C.

    6C the latter. Put the mice to use.
