at least one other teleporter brought along, that person then

Arawn does the inspection of Etain in the private dinning
Despite the influence his status afforded him Arawn was not
keen to order Etain to strip down as had been done. To him it
was undignified yet understandable considering the mistrust and
tension between Fremea and Etain.
"I apologize for the indignity, prizzti'" he said to the
aging elf. "But it must be done if there is to be any chance
at trust between Fremea and yourself. And it is better that I
do so instead of another amongst our company.
I would spare you this if I could but Fremea has asked and
I have given my word to see her to her parents and discover
the truth to the mystery before us."
As Etain removes his pants he gives a slight laugh and
shakes his head. "This does not bother me. I've been
in worse situations. I'm actually glad that my teaching
has given her some serious thought. It is good to be paranoid
and to strive for intrigue. Those that are lax get duped
and taken out by nature or other means. This was directed by
the Monarchs. I did my job. Whether she accepts the job
they plan for her is up to her."
When the contents of the love letter were discovered by the
Alfar he took note of the woman's name before handing the
letter back to Etain. As he passed it he gave the Elf a
strongly sympathetic look. Bit by bit his past seemed to
indicate one who followed orders over his heart, doing what
was asked of him regardless of the consequences. Leaders desired
such men as servants though often with little thought to the
sacrifices they made. As he had sacrificed love for duty had
he done a similar thing with Fremea, doing what he was told
even against heart or conscience?
"I'm sorry but perhaps once we're done you might be able
to see her again."
Etain grabs the letter and places it back in his book while
putting on his tunic. "No. I will never." He turns around
and places the book in his bag. He shakes his head and then
turns back around with a sly smile. "I once planned to be
a painter and artist. But the Council wishes me to do other
things and when they command...." He then sits to put his
shoes one. He nods to the book, "but we can still dream."
Arawn looks to the wall wondering why his spell would not
work. He could try again but maybe these special elves that
are chosen to guide special Sidh like Fremea have some
divine help or maybe his concentration is just down that
he can't get the spell to work. If the party will travel
for several days he could use those days to learn more and
try the spell again when Etain is asleep.
[Time: 10:28pm - North of Salaqara - Plains]
The silence grows as the party sees who will do the
teleporting and figuring out the options.
Kiet is reminded of something he was going to mention earlier.
"Speaking of teleporting with the animals, that might be rather
dangerous if they start acting up the way you people described.
Is there some way we can protect ourselves...well...yourselves...
from that happening again?"
Arawn in the dark looks around to Will and Z'leyra to see
if they will do any of the teleporting. But when they do
not speak up he comments. "I can Translocate myself and Unali
back to retrieve her map if that would help," Arawn chimed in.
"Or else, as Fremea has been Samma, she can Teleport herself
and another teleporter there, a role I am willing to take.
After, the teleporter can return to bring others with them
to the teleport spot."
When Kiet voiced his concerns regarding the animals acting
up again the Alfar grimaced.
"Other than general magical defense I'm afraid I can't say.
The An's'alum was only active for about a month before it was
dismantled so extensive knowledge is limited. But perhaps mental
warding might prove useful or the application of natural magics
such as the warding provided by sapphires or a topaz."
Raban waves his hand as if the others can see him in the
very dark moonless night. "A map might help but would one
know exactly on the map where to teleport? I mean I may
not know the spell but I suspect randomly choseing a spot
might be dangerous. I actually could probably handle ending
up inside a wall but the little acrobat might not." He gives
a little laugh in jest only.
GM: A short update. Still needing the info to proceed.
* Where around/in Samma EXACTLY in the form of if
outskirts then some random wood or if in city hoping
to be in some known place or just a random teleport
and hope for the best?
* Looks like Arawn will do the teleport since no one else
has spoken up. So Arawn where do you go? Is the first
jump with others or yourself? If alone/others what steps
* Will assume Raban in first group for basically help
to protect and Kiet in the second as requested so
not to end up in a wall. Otherwise will assume Random
Once I know this info we'll move on. We might best plan
on the step after as to where to go and do what. I have
a suggestion from Etain but it won't happen till the teleport
GM: My brain is Divine so perfect in thinking. Only the
dwarves make mistakes not me. But it seems some may
not know my thinking. Since it has come up again
I will explain some of the Mana report info.
Mana points -
There are two figures here. First is without aids and
the second is with aids. Aids are Wand/Staff which boost
mana use accordingly. I list the # based on what is used.
So example: Joe A has a Energy level of 100. A casting
ability of 200. Since he can cast 100 mana a day so I
use this figure. So if I list the figure at 100% that
means he has 100 mana. At 50% then 50 mana, 25% 25
mana, at 12% then 12. Simple eh? So let's say Jane has
150 Energy Level and I list it at 50%. So 150 x 0.50 =
75 mana left! It is really that simple.
Somantic aids ie Wand/Staff help boost the MU over the
Energy Level limit. So if Joe A has a Wand that boosts
him to 60 more points we can figure it this way. 100
energy level, 200 casting ability and 60 boost. So
it is 100+60 for the daily limit. So if the chart
shows 50% then it would be 160x0.50 or 80 points left
So the % figure is based on use and what is left. So
if Joe has a 40% and a 50%. This means that without
aid he can spent 40% more mana which would be 100x0.40
or 40 points. With aid he gets that boost and can do
50 points. So final figure would be 40 and 50. This
help? If 100% then at full ability. At 0% then tapped
out and no more mana THAT day. This does not mean you
have casting ability mana just for that day.
Health/Energy - Same concept. If 50 hit points and I list
10% then you are 45 down and leaves 5. If at 90% then
you are 50x0.90 or 45 so in good shape.
hope this helps. I would list actual numbers if you would
prefer this. If just want a standing # then let me know
But I do not do this since it might give away your character
sheet info you may want private.
