why do priests love skulls?
because they're holey


Plaster Town Cop

I lied, I ran out of time and couldn't get the scanning done on the alternate path, will post tomorrow time permitting.

Update

We're going for the Pixies. Personally I think you made a mistake, the goblins are a bunch of cool, chilled out bros whereas pixies...well, gently caress pixies.

First should mention this because it's the reason why this game has loot cards in the first place:

Arkanomen posted:

293 and snake that sick armor and shield. She can't see very well so she wont notice you taking it with you.

Unlike most of these books you can take whatever you see in any scene so long as there are loots cards for those items. There actually are loot cards for the armour and shield, and here they are:



The shield gives us a saving throw of 4+ on 1D6 against any negative effects from losing a combat round. Some monsters inflict injuries or break equipment or whatever so this can be handy. But since the elf is a weed, he gets exhausted swinging a heavy shield around. While we have this item, every time we do something that uses Effort it will cost us one extra Effort.

The plate armour doesn't help because the elf isn't trained to fight or even move in armour, this armour was made for a 200-pound knight rather than a scrawny sack of bones and so it won't fit, someone needs to help you into and out of it, a human died in it and just kind of fermented in there so it stinks, and so on. But it goes in our inventory because why not.

Anyway, things. 169:



Putting the food question to one side for a sec, on to 200:



Decisions needed :

1) Do you want to eat the Tasty Burg or save it for later and use the Rations?
2) Do you want to use the shield?
3) Next moves.


I'll update the adventure sheet once I know what we're doing about rations and the shield.

Guys it's the sapphire rosť of Francis the Black, the king of the pixies! We totally need to swig that poo poo, even if he's going to get gigantically pissed off. Hell, maybe he's offering it to us and will be pissed if we DON'T drink it, you never know with pixies.

I say take the potion, but don't drink it. Eat the burger, since you're going to need it before those bastard pixies are through with you.

As far as I remember* a lot of those potion effects ended up being pretty useful and/or got you killed in amusing ways. Unless labeled or written into the encounter you'd roll for random effects on new potions, poisons and so forth. Gambling on a potion and having the last of your effort leak away from magical dysentery is always a fun way to go.

Well I got a straight answer on food (we're burgin'), and the shield (the game doesn't distinguish between you wearing the shield on your arm, back or rear end, if it's not in an unruly heap with the rest of your garbage it's equipped.)

I used the Burg to heal the minor injury since we have high Effort already. Updated sheet:

That's a shame, I can't find an undamaged copy anywhere. Almost every one of these things has vanished or been destroyed in suspicious circumstances. You're right though, potions in this game are unpredictable and fun. Even potions in written encounters can give you brain damage or a wicked case of gas:



Anyway back to the issue at hand. I counted two pansies begging the pixies for admission, three tough guys who want to smash their way in, three people who want to drink the potion, one person who wants to not drink the potion but pretend they did, one person who wants to go back the way we came and try our luck with the goblins and four people who want to pocket the potion no matter what. It's too close to call. I've found the page part now, so just select from the options on the page, ta:



Pretty sure the first and last options include snagging the potion but not drinking it.


TL;DR - Do we :
Beg for Mercy,
Do What We're Told, or
Stand and Fight?

"Good" move. I'll check back tomorrow some time to see if we're going to definitely cave in to the pixies.

In the meantime I snagged this off some rube on Ebay for just over a hundo:



It's a Bestiary for this series of books, with only a couple dozen pages missing! I'm not sure why they bothered making this because every critter has like two stats and they tell you everything you need to know about them every time you encounter them, but whatever. Here's the entry for pixies, since we're soon going to be encountering them one way or another:

Why is the rotting tree stump smiling at me like that? I'm not drinking his loving potion. Jam the bastard sword in his ugly rotten debased tree face, slice up his eyeballs ah ha ha ho, steal his poo poo, but don't bother drinking the potion just yet. Grandma hallucinations have a time and place and this is neither.

This may not be an option in the book but perhaps the way to defeat the pixies is to lure the pixies out of hiding, scoop them up a put them in rear end, drink potion that will very likely shrink the elf to pixie size, remove pixies from rear end who are now ant size, find another regular sized pixie and shove the tiny pixies in his rear end and make him drink some shrinking potion. Keep doing this until all pixies are one. Hopefully the potion will wear off at some point and the pixies will explode as they return to their original size

Slap bastard sword down on potion, exploding it wastefully. Whing verbal abuse at the trees until the jerk pixies come out swinging their comically tiny arms, or they get bored and go away.

Also piss on the tree stump to show dominance. Forget who said that, but it's important. Maybe do this before pulling out our sword. Or not. Whatever. Got two fists anyway.
