Ooc: [
Happy Festive December a long Xmas morning post stocking gift to all LOL.
Thanks for all your posts this winter season. My view On Healing:

Using rq 6 healing rules may open up more role playing? Since everyone
being I. This campaign being magical healers by the gods it may be more rpg
to heal with out spells a more natraul feat? And agree with varo as well.

No use making up rules but hybrid thought is there a healing skill so
failure uses the rq2 basic healing rule and success uses rq6 advanced
healing rules?


Juno fills his water for himself and his horses before cleaning his clothes
in the river as instructed. He mutters a silent prayer to his god that he
is grateful we are alive after such a bizarre episode including exploding
animals and bloody naked people cleaning clothes at stream. He wonders as
he is cleaning his clothes looking down do the gods laugh at us especially
the luck gods.

When the two men ask for help Juno stares intently at both looking for
suspicious activity and then says “one moment let me check”.

He walks over to his horse and acts like he is looking at his supplies but
fire takes off his spear leans it against the horse pets horse to calm it
secretly tires to cast detect enemies (1) if possible secretly as he can
from behind his horse.

If there shown to be enemies from the spell or any thing suspicious skill
 darting eyes fidget movements Juno can tell by looking at them.

He thinks to himself,
 “He had heard of exploding runes they mention a bear and we just almost
got killed by an exploding bear  his years in militia he seen men do
nefarious things. Why he is cautious could be unrelated but then again....”

If he sees more hidden people using  Spot Hidden (05)

1. If has time cast protection(2) on himself as well secretly hoping they
don’t see this.

2. Then he grabs his spear and grabs a rope. He says, I got some rope if
you need it ?”

3.  He walks over and He puts the rope on end of spear and hands it to them
using spear kinda launching it at there feet before he does he scowl turns
around and scowled to the group and then turns around and smiles kindly to
the two men faking it as it where.  Knowing he has his spear ready for an
attack. In case they draw or jump.

4. Juno says ,” This is a gift from my god We hope it help you head out and
be safe as quickly as possible back to your family.”


If spell shows friendly or can’t do spell etc or nothing detected with his
abilities or skills?

1. Still holding his spear and thinking to himself that he really needs his
stuff so he says “ I don’t have any thing of use that I can spare I am
traveling light. Unless you want to make a makeshift shelter using those
precious pelts and some rope varo has  and my crap clothes.
 [ Peasant clothes in my pack.]

and some sticks and leaves mother nature provides,

(He looks and gives a nod to Varo and thus a proverbial prop to her higher

2. Juno asks, “Do you have blankets. Can you light your fire? We are here
to help you.”

3. Juno says,
”From our hearts comes love from our heads simple ideas for you. We give
these gifts as advice with love and kindness. May our higher power bless us

Juno reflects, My militia boss used to speak about an old rune priests
saying he heard long ago about random rational looking folks you meet upon
the trail of life.

 “Never assume unkindness be kind and keep your true allies close, but keep
your true foes even closer and to them be unkind.“

My boss spoke further and explained his ideas in this saying, “If a foe
wants to harm you give them something to get them away quickly and keep
your eyes on them as they leave for as long as possible . Give Your allies
advice first and also along with a true helpful material gift and set them
free. This will build good karma and rise ones power and glow with the
