Treasure Assessment

Treasure (with a few additional notes):

Ahmet, total x.p.: 1,225

Enrico, total x.p.: 612 ... flail +1 (technically, Enrico doesn't know that, but it's easier for combat calculation); plate mail (40% quality), scale mail (60% quality), hand axe (40% quality)

Maximillian, total x.p.: 1,926 ... plate mail (10% quality), scale mail (40% quality), great helmet (40% quality)

Lukas,  total x.p.: 2,201 ... scale mail (70% quality), great helmet (30% quality), trident (100% quality)

Andrej,  total x.p.: 1,022 ... warhammer (50% quality); sooner or later Andrej's going to pop the cork, and will learn (from experience) that it's a potion of extra-healing.  If there's a potion a cleric would recognize from sight and smell, its a healing potion.

Sofia:  total x.p.: 511 ... glaive (20% quality), heavy crossbow (10% value)

OK I'll bite... quality?

Andrej said...

Very good. Thank you Alexis. Two questions:

1) What's the significance of the quality #'s?

2) Can I assume Sofia was able to recover all of her knives and daggers?

Ahmet said...

Oh, was Enrico able to recover his hand axe? I was wondering if that was "his" hand axe or just a random one we found in the muck.

Alexis Smolensk said...

I need to know the rate the merchant in town will give you if you want to sell the item.

Because it's water, I'll rule that nothing is broken.

Could you roll a d20, Sofia ... and for every 1 rolled, consider that knife or dagger lost.

Lukas said...

Just as a side question, if quality is based on rust, could application of polish spell improve this %?

Alexis Smolensk said...

Same roll for the hand axe (1 in 20), Ahmet. Ahmet's hand axe would be a different one.

Lukas said...

Should I do so for the darts as well?

Alexis Smolensk said...

I will take a +10-30% improvement for application of the polish cantrip (one possible polish improvement per item)

Alexis Smolensk said...

Your darts float, Lukas ... so you're in luck there.

Lukas said...

Are the current numbers accounting for the casting on the heavy crossbow?

As I have done that before we split loot.

Andrej said...

F#@$. Sofia lost one dagger and one knife.

Ahmet said...

Ahmet rolls a lucky 13.

We still have the rusted light crossbow, three rotten shields, and the handful of coins (1 GP, 1 SP, 4 CP) lost due to rounding. Everyone OK with giving the crossbow (if fixable) and the coins to Hichem?

I would just leave the shields unless they appear to be worth selling.

Lukas said...

Better now than rolling that in combat and stabbing someone in the back of the head. I'm sure we can buy some more somewhere with the loot we just got.

Maximillian said...

Does the xp bonus apply to treasure xp, and is that included? To clarify, this total is for treasure alone?

Andrej said...

True enough Lukas.

Ahmet, yes... let Hichem take the goods. Which means, let Lukas have them as I believe he has taken over the running of Hichem.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Yes, I assessed on the crossbow, upgraded it from 0%.

Lukas said...

I cant fix the rotten shields. Wasn't there a group fund at some point? Anyhow, Hichem is technically on my list as my hireling, so I'll be rewarding him when we get back for his stalwart loyalty in not running off with some random barmaid. If you would like to add that amount, I will not be opposed to this. However, I plan on managing Hichem more as a mover of goods and watcher of horses than as a combatant unless he desires otherwise.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Oh, I didn't add 10% to experience; everyone except the druid and the monk add 10%.

Maximillian said...

So the quality does not affect usability if worn?

Alexis Smolensk said...

The experience listed on this post has nothing to do with any previously added experience.

Add the above total to your character, Maximillian.

Alexis Smolensk said...

If the quality is 0%, it won't work. Otherwise, it will serve.

Ahmet said...

Great!

Are we ready to get out of this hell-hole or do we need to flay some heads for Lukas?

Maximillian said...

I level up then!!

Is the druid ineligible for the bonus?

(BTW, I no longer have access to publisher, When you have time, posting a pdf version of the druid .pub document would be helpful)

Andrej said...

Lukas, the group fund was exhausted and we haven't been contributing to it (or, at least I haven't been contributing or managing it) due to 1) Andrej's create food & water and 2) all of the hirelings running around now.

Lukas said...

Time to queue up your sale items guys. If it's metal, salable and you want a free polishing, I get one a day...

Queue so far...
1. Scale Mail - Lukas
2. Great Helm - Lukas

I'll do it in rotation after that reverse alphabetically by primary character.

Aside from that. Let's arrange shipping this haul. And let's not forget the heads!

Lukas said...

I want as many heads as we can get. Having just one hydra head loses the impact.

Andrej said...

What shall we take from the body? In addition to being nice souvenirs, there may be some market value here.

Andrej and Sofia head topside. While the others sort out what they'd like to take from the body (and haul out it and the many sets of armor), we'll set camp up. Under the trees down below where the guards stopped to rest and chat seems a likely spot, so we return there.

Lukas said...

Aside from my eerily necromantic interest in the inner workings of it's body I don't think there's anything I would know about butchering a hydra for profit.

Andrej said...

necromatic or necrophiliacal?

Lukas said...

I'm more interested in the heart/digestion/lungs than the reproduction, but considering the head-gender-thing that could be something to investigate...

Maximillian said...

Alexis, Sorry for all the questions. Feel free to answer them as slowly as you want to.

Does the reverse of a spell count as a different spell? I.e. must I choose between Cure and Cause Light Wounds?

I went ahead and rolled a d8 for my hitpoints: 5+2

Alexis Smolensk said...

Looking at your character, Maximillian, you are entitled to the 10%. Please add that to your complete experience.

Take note of this page:

Andrej said...

Hey Alexis, what about gem and jewelry worth? I know you've told us what we'd reasonably know within the game, but I'm curious what will happen 2 years from now when we try to sell one of the items...

Alexis Smolensk said...

There wouldn't be any definite market for hydra parts, including the heads ... the latter would serve as trophies, but the body parts are probably not worth any effort.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Until you get those objects directly assessed, Andrej, I'll keep account of them.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Cause light wounds and cure light wounds are the same spell. It is all in how you choose to use that reversible spell when you cast it.

You can't take the spell twice. Hit points accepted, Maximillian.

Alexis Smolensk said...

I'll answer questions when they run out.

Do you fellows have weights for everything? You can estimate how many trips it will take from those weights and your carry allowance

There are 48 gold pieces, 36 silver pieces and 20 copper pieces to the pound.

Alexis Smolensk said...

... until they run out. oops.
I'm going to continue adding the magic to my treasure generator for awhile. I'll check in an hour or so from now.

Andrej said...

I have to re-do my coin weights, I was figuring 4 coins to an ounce regardless of type and need to adjust, but I should be able to carry all treasure out based on my current encumbrances.

Assuming nobody needs to jump ahead, Andrej and Sofia will get hauled out to set camp as declared above. In the meantime I'll be re-figuring encumbrance.

I say we camp here for at least a day to rest and allow Andrej another round of healing spells.

Ahmet said...

Tazio is the son of a metallurgist ("identify value of metal objects"), so perhaps he can help with a few of the items.

Ahmet asks him to appraise the value of the engraved helmet and the short sword with the pommel of amber stones, although likely it's the stones and not the metal that's valuable in that case.

Ahmet said...

Yes, I'm all for camping... we're pretty well spent.

Maximillian said...

Thank you.
I was specifically wanting to see the spell list, but really, unless you've drastically changed spell levels or aavailability, I think my choice is pretty clear.

I've updated my spell list etc; I'll update my inventory as I get time throughout the day. I'm going to have to tie the armor to the back of my horse...

Yes, sleep is calling to me!

Alexis Smolensk said...

Good.

I'm pretty much wasted today; red as a lobster and run down. Good times. I'm going to be working on the wiki in bits this week; Maximillian, the druid is going to get updated eventually, and your spell decisions are fine for now (you can update later as necessary).

I'll put up a post tomorrow and we'll get the campaign back in motion.

Maximillian said...

Ouch, take it easy.

BTW, I was just poking around on the wiki and noticed thad the cleric spell table doesn't grant a second lvl spell until 3rd level. Does the druid table match the way it does in the wiki? The old document I have grants a single 2nd level spell at lvl 2.

Alexis Smolensk said...

That's correct, Maximillian.

Don't forget your wisdom grants you two bonus second level spells, so you should be choosing 3.

Maximillian said...

Done, thanks.

Cure light wounds
Heat Metal
Slow Poison

Andrej said...

It'll be nice to have another healer in the party, Max.

Maximillian said...

I'll do what I can.

Lukas said...

I say we take one trip into town after hauling the stuff into camp and then hire or request a wagon to help us ship all our stuff back.

Ahmet said...

After camping one night to rest/regain spells?

Lukas said...

yes

Lukas said...

Too bad furnish can't make a hand cart.

Maximillian said...

Alexis, how heavy is that heavy gold ring?

The rest of you, does anyone want the mantlet I selected? Either for use or as a gift for Mme. Salvatore (Eh Amhet .) I only chose it because I thought I was going to be able to wear it, so if someone has more use for it, I'll happily make a trade.

Ahmet said...

Why not sell it, Max?

Andrej said...

Besides, if Ahmet has been paying attention and he wants to please or impress Madame Salvadore, he will buy her something with a bird motif.

Lukas said...

Yeah, there will be a good deal of selling going on. Keep in mind it is not actually magical or provide a bonus in any way. (Except an impressive outfit perhaps)

This means it's probably particularly good for the selling.

Andrej said...

It could be mithril or adamantite/ adamantium... perhaps Ahmet's metallurgist's son follower canidentify it. It was noted as being valuable, so is a liquid asset whatever its specific nature.

Maximillian said...

Yes, I will sell it, but wanted to give you guys first option on it.

Alexis Smolensk said...

The next post is up.

Ahmet said...

Yeah, I was hoping I could find her something more appropriate as a token of our esteem... though she might like the short sword with the amber stones.

Ahmet shows Tazio the engraved helmet, the chain mantlet, and the short sword (anything else made of metal that you guys want him to appraise?) for his opinion.
