"Right, right, we need to get going. I wasn't able to get a cart or horses in this town so we'll need to find something in the next town over- Manaridge. It's about a day's walk from here." Harold said as he pointed down a well-worn path leading into the forest. The treeline blanketed the ground, making it difficult to see the horizon.
"And the 300 miles is a rough estimate. I'll admit, I haven't been in town for a few years- I spent all my time at the temple. Well, if everyone's set, I say we head out!"

*Denora checks over her bags and checks to make sure she has all of her books on her*
" A day to the nearest town is nothing much, but with the task we have at hand it is a trivial matter and I would much rather deal with the issue sooner rather then later. But perhaps its best we re supply there rather then push ourselves to the point of being at a disadvantage.
As the group walked, Harold looked back at Denora with a raised eyebrow.
"You want to be at a disadvantage?" He asked. The forest path was brightly lit by the mid-day sun, but patches of shadow covered the trail. Wildlife could be heard- birds chirping, small animals running away from the path as the group past, the crunching of dirt under their feet.
Can I get a Perception or Knowledge(Nature) check from everyone, please?
Halamar breathed deeply, quieting his mind for the journey ahead. He took a late lead, allowing himself to drift to the back of the group - bringing up the rear as they travelled. Not only did he want to keep an eye on his new companions, he thought for a moment, mumbled something under his breath in an odd language and allowed the Detect Magic spell he cast to feed him information. He managed to get the entire group together, and did a basic check to see if any of them had any active spells or magic items on them before focusing on Harold to confirm the teleportation portion of his story, then allowed the magic to fade.
Halamar settled into his travelling pace following, maintaining a steady but low energy gait while ensuring to check his surroundings at intervals. He struck a good balance between having his head swivelling noticeably and making sure he looked in every direction - including to the rear - at least once per minute.
Halamar isn't trained in Knw(Arcana), so I can't roll that to determine if there is a lingering aura of the appropriate type on Harold to back up his story, but I do have spellcraft, if that works: pC_igZSu1d20+7
Halamar will be making passive perception checks, i.e. taking 10 every minute or so (it's not a crit, that's the total): 20-20
OOC: Spellcraft will not work for this. Sense Motive works if you want to see if he's telling the truth. Your Detect Magic detects no magic in the vicinity. I'll report your knowledge check when everyone rolls.
As the party continued their walk, Finwe noticed minute footprints in the dirt. The prints were scattered about, as if a large group had gotten into a fight. Most interesting of all was how worn the prints were- either the fight happened a long time ago or someone frantically attempted to cover their tracks. Finwe was able to tell the tracks seem to head off in the same direction as the party's destination. Although the tracks are faded, Finwe can tell they're of a small creature....goblins, perhaps?
OOC: If you want to RP conveying the information you can.
*D'Jangus slows and kneels down examining the tracks* "It appears that someone may have been trying to cover their tracks along this path heading towards our destination. I'm a fairly adept tracker, should I take the lead to see if their path diverges from ours at all?"
*Pre-emptive Survival roll to follow tracks* 7OgH|ale1d20+9 (I'm assuming forest terrain) 1d20+9
As D'Jangus walked past Harold to follow the tracks, Harold stopped and raised an eyebrow.
"What? Tracks?" He said, looking back at the trail. He scratched the back of his head and shrugged before contiuing to walk.
"Well.....I mean, this is a popular road, maybe people have been here lately. We should probably pick up the pace if we want to make it to Manaridge before nightfall, though." He said, matching his walk speed with D'Jangus. D'Jangus continued looking for tracks and following them, but sadly they seem to vanish after a few hundred feet.
Dingmamon: the sanctuary would help if the group tried to just murder hobo them from the start, or if they ran away, but if you describe them how you did, i don't think they'd just attack for no reason

shogungari: oh hey, we got a new guy
Jan 19, 2016 16:33:14 GMT
Dingmamon: yeah, i got the notification earlier. haven't heard anything from him yet
Jan 19, 2016 18:22:28 GMT
shogungari: I just posted another ad on Reddit so hopefully we can get another game set up soon
Jan 19, 2016 18:26:41 GMT
shogungari: you thinking of restarting tempest statum for the new players? I could even remake with a normal character
Jan 19, 2016 18:28:55 GMT
Doublewhip: Saw your Reddit ad. Don't forget to reach out to and affiliate with other similar forums!
Jan 20, 2016 1:29:36 GMT
Dingmamon: thanks Doublewhip, we'll keep an eye out for some similar forums.
Jan 20, 2016 14:50:50 GMT
Dingmamon: and possibly gary, though at this point i am having a hard time coming up with campaign ideas.
Jan 20, 2016 14:51:58 GMT
shogungari: Really? I have a few if you wanted to borrow them
Jan 20, 2016 16:32:44 GMT
shogungari: Also, welcome Doublewhip

Guest: This place still active?
Apr 13, 2016 7:01:34 GMT
Dingmamon: not really. the guy who started it is in the military now, and those of us that did stick around had life stuff come up
Apr 13, 2016 20:12:19 GMT
shogungari: Hey Ding, I see you still come here. Any incentive to revive this place?
Jun 29, 2016 23:20:30 GMT
Dingmamon: I would love to, but really the only time I have to actually check it is when i'm at work. If you want to revive it by advertising and stuff, I will do what I can to keep it up and running smoothly for you, but I probably wouldn't be able to actively
Jun 30, 2016 18:58:23 GMT
Dingmamon: participate in any games
Jun 30, 2016 18:58:33 GMT
Dingmamon: By all means if you want to set something up and run it, go for it. I still have Admin access since Zekey left it to me when he joined the Navy, and from conversations with him, he probably isn't coming back
Jun 30, 2016 19:00:30 GMT
Dingmamon: Alternatively, if you wanted to set your own one of these up, you would have the ability to shape it and tailor it to what you wanted a bit more, and I'd be willing to help keep things organized on it so you can focus on people and games
Jun 30, 2016 19:05:52 GMT
shogungari: Nope, just seeing if you had something planned.
