Here's a few cool pictures I got when googling for "young human cleric of light". Maybe one of the images speaks to you?

Well, I've just dropped the ball for a week, that's what's going on! I'll get us moving on again before the evening is up.

Ok, no worries, just wondering. Thought maybe Marack was supposed to be doing something . . . besides being grumpy, that is!

Actually for a day or so after Webling posted I was waiting for someone to claim that final hp. Then I realized that nobody could. Then I got caught up in a busy week. But your reminder helped me get us all prepped for the next thing and write up this one.

How strictly do you want me to track the arrows I am using? Can they be replenished from the companies supplies?

I think it's fine to play a little loose with that as long as things don't get out of hand. While scarcity and supply present some interesting game dynamics, and they have their place, I don't really think that the game mechanics are balanced around the notion of archers needing to regulate their consumption of ammunition. It's definitely not fun to have a character in a fight where there's very little you can do because you ran out of arrows.

That said, make your logistics believable. Yes, it's believable that the cart has a nigh-inexhaustible supply of arrows. If you guys abandon the cart, though, you're going to have to figure out how you're going to carry all the arrows (and food) that you'll need until you can resupply. If you make decisions that embrace limited supply I might require you to be accountable for those decisions.

I don't currently have plans to force this kind of scarcity artificially but maybe that will make for a compelling story in the future.

I don't think it really matters; this story moves along pretty much on rails from fight to fight and all, but it wasn't my intent to suggest that you guys were outnumbered quite that badly. The Thayans showed up with a certain number of undead; those are counted into the maps. When fighters fall in battle, sometimes there's a necromancer close enough that they stand back up again and fight for Thay: that's the battlefield necromancy I was referring to. I totally get that I left that open to interpretation.

Regardless, this sneak attack through the mountains hasn't gone off like planned. The ambush was ambushed.

Family health situation is keeping me off the site but I'm trying to not fail everyone too horribly.

Osse tips me off that I maybe wasn't as clear as I could have been about the zombies. Imagine fifteen zombies shambling along with a dude on horseback behind them, steering them toward fresh victims.

No worries on the pace, DM. Family always comes first. Thanks for keeping us informed.

Hey I know things are moving slow. I continue to apologize.

That said, I'm waiting on a few more posts before I can post again. If I don't hear from everyone soon I may just post myself?
