I can't think of what we might offer the spirit. But boons we could ask for in return that would be very useful and not super powerful would be temporary darkvision, or water.

If it's not something just messing with us, I would think it's some kind of earth elemental. Water seems possible in that case - channeled from some other location. But since it wouldn't give us the slightest hint what it would want, I don't know what to do. It could want gold, or information (about what I have no idea), or a striptease. "What would you give us for...this grappling hook?!"

Snap Kick is willing to get nekkid for water! But I don't know if that is PG-13.

He also has 2 crawler mucus vials from "Night People" that are worth 200 gp each in the 5e economy but which are worthless in the West Marches economy. So I am happy to exchange them for water. I can try it on my next post.

If you are struggling to comprehend its motives, that's something the Insight skill could possibly help with.

Thanks for the hint.

I got a 24 insight roll. I don't know if you want me to post a "Snap Kick considers the motives of the voice" post to make it official. Or you can tell me what insight he gains, if any, and I can work it into my next post.

I figure in this case because Snap Kick has issues communicating his understanding, I will send you a PM with his insights that you can use before writing your next post. Stay tuned.

@Yoshimi:
I sent you the PM. Generally, I don't need your character's action to be stated in the IC before I resolve it, and this OOC thread is the more expedient angle to receive a response about the game from me. I do however expect that anything resolved OOC finds its way into the IC thread eventually, at the least to inform the narrative canon that an interaction has occurred or that information has been processed, even if the details are omitted. I also would like any rolls that were made to appear in the IC thread as well, because I cannot be bothered to search them in the OOC thread if they ever become relevant again. Anything relevant to the game belongs into the IC thread for the sake of posterity.

Sounds cool. I'm curious how Snap Kick is going to overcome his communication gap for his allies to benefit from his wisdom.

@Yoshimi:
Is Snap Kick's mimicry in common?

@secretID:
If so, will Arrogaio translate into primordial? If he won't, I will deliver a GM update soon, if he will, I'll wait for you to post first.

Yes, I forgot the spirit doesn't understand Common, but Snap Kick doesn't have much of a mimicry repertoire outside of Common. So I guess he'd rely on Arrogaio's translation.

So in exchange for the promise to try, the party gets the water now? Just checking b/c the IC statement didn't read quite that way to me.

Mm. I completely forgot about those guys. The grung didn't help avoid the confusion any...

Arrogaio might want to make that fine point clear.
