Alright, wracking my brain for what my poor non-spellcasting Rogue can do. How about a bit of camouflage to break up the silhouette of the ship or make it look less like a ship? Blankets or cloths in the webbing around the airbags? A ship-sized Gillie Suit. Even a blanket over the Crow's Nest.

Khat has Deception as a Skill and Disguise Kit as a Tool.

Let me know if that works, and I will RP Khat, and the Airman doing what we can in the time available.

@purplerook: a blanket will hide the dark crow's nest on the light envelope.

@secretID: the airship is still flying in silent running mode.

Sweet. I don't know if Khat's plan will work (throwing a piton overboard to strike something far below, but she rolled awesome to do it - 18 (roll) + 6 (Deception) +5 (psi-die, if the initial roll failed).

I'll leave the Fog Cloud to one of the others, since I think it will require a 2L casting.

@Players,

Khat is no longer going to be doing any scouting. A level of exhaustion means she is at a disadvantage on Stealth and Perception checks. She can still fight.

LeDragon, do we take disadvantage on the Perception roll if we fail the CON roll?

One level of exhaustion is disadvantage on all ability checks (including initiative).

RAW, a level of exhaustion can only be removed by a Long Rest (or certain high level spells and potions), which means that unless LeDragon rules otherwise, any characters exhausted, are exhausted for the remainder of the adventure.

Yeah, my question was whether the checks were consecutive or simultaneous. PT Will have disadvantage, but I didn't know if that started before the perception check or immediately afterwards.

I wait for delpinator and Pinotage to drop off their characters, then we'll see what's hiding there.

LeDragon, it sounds like there appear to be the corpses of two separate groups, the crew and some orcs - correct? The orcs don't appear to have been crew, and there doesn't appear to have been a third group?

Right. There are two groups of dead:
1.) Crew members: humans, elves, half-elves, dwarves with the usual aeronaut goggles and cold protecting clothes. Most of them have cuts of blades. The human dead show also signs of post-mortal bites.
2.) Orcs in armor. Some have a kind of goggles, most of them don't. They were ripped in parts or pierced with short spikes.
