Khav gives the gnoll a hard look, then gazes towards their target as inconspicuously as possible.

In addition, Khav knows that the smallest booth will just barely cover the dig site, requiring the digging to be one at a time until substantial progress has been made, while the largest would allow all of the Kech Volaar to participate while still allowing one or more of the group to be inside the tent.

Lan mentally tallies up what this escapade will cost them. "Well then, we'd better get to digging for information sooner rather than later. Master Kurvilis, Chief Sentinel, tell us what you need us to do." he says, going along with the prearranged setup as far as he understood it. Hopefully the digging won't take too long.

You take out 30 GP and hand it over to the vendor. He gives you a cart with everything that you need. By arriving early, you lay claim to the spot that Yeraa identified with a tent large enough to hide most of their activities (+2 bonus on all skill checks for the coming Skill Challenge for buying the large tent). It doesn't take long to set up the stall and tent, and as soon as you do the Wordbearers have the cobblestones pried up and begin digging. Meanwhile, the five of you concentrate on distracting the denizens of Graywall from whatever is going on inside of your tent.

Skill Challenge (12 success before 3 failures): You are to distract anyone that might be near enough to the tent to get suspicious of the noises inside. This can be done be attempting to buy, sell, entertain (or any other way). Each round will be about a half an hour. A map of the marketplace is also shown below, with your tent having a large red star on top of it. Just about any skill can be used, with appropriate role play. Every skill check also has a +2 bonus for buying the large tent. Some suggestions and limitations below
Primary Skills:
Athletics - Two characters engage in demonstrations of physical prowess, with one aiding the other (1 success per round and up to 3 Athletics attempts allowed)
Acrobatics - One character engages in an acrobatic display to get the crowd cheering loudly (1 success per round and up to 3 Athletics attempts allowed)
Bluff - Engage some patrons by telling a tall tale (only 1 success per round allowed)
Diplomacy - Placates someone either already angry or that looks like they might cause trouble (only 1 success per round allowed)
Secondary Skills
Insight or Perception - Watch the crowd to determine how certain people can be distracted (+2 bonus on next primary skill)

Other skills may be used as good ideas come up. Each skill can only be successful a maximum of once per round, and any skill used successfully as a secondary skill will generate a +2 bonus on the next skill check. User posted image

Lan looks around the marketplace as it begins to fill with merchants, hawkers, and some customers. He thinks to recognize some beggars acting as a distraction for prowling pickpockets. He points this out to the others in case they want to cause a distraction by claiming their pockets were picked.

Streetwise to aid the group. (1d20+12+1=15)

OOC: I think by the current skill aid another rules the DC is 10 + half-level, rounded down. So DC 12.

Kurvilis, lacking some of the social graces that might help in an endeavor like this, chooses to rely on his magical trickery. A small child and his mother walk close by, but are distracted by the sounds of an exotic bird off behind them. As they turn and try to find the creature, Kurvilis smiles to himself.

Using Ghost Sound, if that can be allowed. I think it fits within the spirit of the challenge?

Lan watches the crowd to gain advantage later on, specifically looking for any criminal element he can use to cause a ruckus. At the same time, Kurvilis causes a strange bird call to sound out in the corner of the marketplace, causing many people to look that direction and away from the tent.

OOC: That is 1 success, and 1 aid (+2 on next check). Ghost sound was great, but you only get to do it once.

Khav notices someone looking too closely at the area where the digging is ongoing, and tries to distract them with some juggling. Unfortunately, he drops one of the balls, which promptly rolls right towards the edge of the pit.

The crowd watches Khav for just a moment, before he drops a ball. They promptly begin roaring with laughter and move on with their shopping.

"Here ye, here ye. I am Geen and a master acrobat. I plan on giving you a sample of the many feats and tricks I can do. I wish to impress upon you dearly, so you will come to our show later tonight." says Geen as the walks amongst the crowd.

He has already taken the time to set up some barrels, crates, with a narrow beam between them. He performs a multitude of acrobatic tricks while walking the beam.

He performs some unique juggling. Apple speed-bobbing. Corn cob stacking. He then nods to the crowd and readies himself the finale...

He then climbs a nearby rope which he attached securely to a pole and manages to get atop the rooftops. He bounds from one to the next, before jumping off the last & out of view. The crowd gasps, but Geen reappears from behind the corner of the building unhurt.

He rejoins the crowd near our tent, bows deeply, and then socializes.

Acrobatics : Acrobatics (1d20+10=15) (please add +1 for 24hr if u wish). ***I have not been receiving emails, otherwise I would have responded right away

The monster denizens of Graywall watch in disbelief as the tree man dashes from one task to another. It's not that he is doing anything particularly well, just that he seems desperate for attention, which he manages to get. When he comes back and bows, the crowd sees that he is done and simply moves on.

OOC: Three successes, no failures. Sentinel needs to take his turns. And as far as taking your turns quickly, right now, no big deal. I think it is going to take a bit for all of us to get back into things. I am not sure why the system isn't e-mailing you (I don't subscribe to any threads, so I don't know if this one is unusual in that regard).

Sentinel can tell that several people find his presence unnerving and drawing attention. Figuring that his best bet is to draw lots of attention, away from the tent, he buys a crate of rotten vegetables. He then carries them over to some children, and lets them try pelting him with food while he dodges and retaliates.

Athletics skill check (1d20+7=12)

OOC: Skill description makes this sound like this skill may be a two person job.

OOC: I was just checking since I know we've taken breaks for work reasons before. Maybe if he doesn't react soon, you could just convert his acro roll into a successful acro aid instead and move to the next round. Up to you.

OOC-Sorry for the hold up guys. I'm not getting email updates, so I didn't realize the game was trying to move forward. I've now got this bookmarked on my tab line, so I'll check in everyday.

Just go ahead and convert that roll to an aid for Sentinel. I'll use that same 'body of text' for my next roll which will be acrobatics.

Sentinel tries carrying a crate of rotten fruit from one end of the market to the other to give the children a game to play (throwing them at him). Geen steps in to help, but this backfires, and causes the crate to drop right in front of the booth, the smell and color bringing everyone's attention there. At this point some of the guards at the market entrance are looking at the booth suspiciously.

OOC: 2 successes and 1 failure (need 12 successes before 3 failures). You have one Streetwise aid in the bank (no one has used it yet). This delay has probably been more my fault than anyone else's. I have been just busy enough (without it being consistent) that I haven't been pushing the game forward. Things should be better for a couple of months.

Round 2 starts now, anyone can go in any order. You can have one Acrobatics and one Athletics success this round.

Seeing Geen and Sentinel bungle so, Lan decides to walk over to the nearby onlookers and address the situation. "Please excuse my bumbling conspira-... err, companions. One has a screw loose and the other a branch up his... well, anyway, I'll be going then." he finishes abruptly as he notices the curious faces turning to glares around him. Lan makes a hasty retreat into the tent when he sees the previously curious guards now walking his way.

Bluff roll, +1 24h, +2 booth bonus. (1d20+12+1+2=16)

OOC: A critical failure! Unless a 16 still passes.

The guards that were looking over, hear what Lan has to say, laugh, shake their heads, and get back to scanning the crowd.

OOC: 3 successes and 1 failure (need 12 successes before 3 failures). You have one Streetwise aid in the bank (no one has used it yet).

  •  Skill Challenge
    • Skill Challenge (12 success before 3 failures): You are to distract anyone that might be near enough to the tent to get suspicious of the noises inside. This can be done be attempting to buy, sell, entertain (or any other way). Each round will be about a half an hour. A map of the marketplace is also shown below, with your tent having a large red star on top of it. Just about any skill can be used, with appropriate role play. Every skill check also has a +2 bonus for buying the large tent. Some suggestions and limitations below
      Primary Skills:
      Athletics - Two characters engage in demonstrations of physical prowess, with one aiding the other (1 success per round and up to 3 Athletics attempts allowed)
      Acrobatics - One character engages in an acrobatic display to get the crowd cheering loudly (1 success per round and up to 3 Athletics attempts allowed)
      Bluff - Engage some patrons by telling a tall tale (only 1 success per round allowed)
      Diplomacy - Placates someone either already angry or that looks like they might cause trouble (only 1 success per round allowed)
      Secondary Skills
      Insight or Perception - Watch the crowd to determine how certain people can be distracted (+2 bonus on next primary skill)

      Other skills may be used as good ideas come up. Each skill can only be successful a maximum of once per round, and any skill used successfully as a secondary skill will generate a +2 bonus on the next skill check.

Khav decides to give the juggling balls a rest and instead does some tumbling. A few flips and handstands later, and all eyes are on him, instead of the excavation.

Skill check - Acrobatics (1d20+11=25)

Acrobatics 25.

Geen is impressed with Khav's acrobatic skill, but he frowns ever so slightly knowing he won't be able to anything like that on his own, since he has already attracted the crowd.

Instead, Geen walks amongst the town folk, keeping a look out for any trouble or anything else that seems out of the ordinary.

perception (1d20+10=16)

Will you allow no roll below my passive score of 20? D&D next has a rule that covers this, and I thought it would be cool to do the same. Your call, oh nice GM that you are.
