Next post will be for the main group. Hopefully tonight or tomorrow.

EDIT: Was going to write up a reply and post it this morning. However, some work ended up being done on the drywall in my apartment. And it's been painted too. So, the smell will put me out of the apartment until at least late afternoon.

I took some time off from posting to let my hip pain settle down. It's a lot better today, so I'm going to try to get at least one done today.

It likely won't get done tomorrow. It's going to be boiling hot and I'll be heading to the mall for air conditioning and a movie. :P

Sitting down to try to right the next update. The chronic pain in my hip is a little better, but I wicked headache right now. ( :( :facepalm: ) Trying to get this down today since tomorrow and Thursday are supposed to be boiling hot. I do have something else to do tonight (maybe), so if it doesn't go up in the next few hours, it likely won't go up until tomorrow.

Later,

Rob

I have two theories as to how Relgar could deal with this current situation. One, he could cast Detect Thoughts and probe the mind of this guard, seeing whether she's just being paranoid as is her job, or if she's actually some sort of plant. If use of Detect Thoughts on nonconsenting persons is considered a gross interpersonal violation that can get you jailed for trying it, my other plan is to have him use his five ranks of Knowledge: Architecture and Engineering to examine the tower facilities, and if he can spot something that looks like it's not up to code, or is some sort of serious security risk in a way that the guards might have not thought about, he could pedantically lecture them on this topic and possibly get them to back down in that way, or at least give Rhodes more ammo to use in intimidating her back to her station.

Using detect thoughts on a guard could get Relgar into trouble, if he is detected. The spell doesn't really say what happens if a Will save is successful against the spell, but I tend to assume for mind-affecting spells that the target would be aware if the save is successful. If it fails, they don't have any idea.

And note that the spell is a 60-foot cone-shaped emanation and requires verbal, somatic, and focus components. If Relgar can't cast it clandestinely, the guards are going to notice. There is an option to use Sleight of Hand to conceal your casting, as per the Sleight of Hand skill section in Races of Stone, p. 133.

Okay, if it's even somewhat likely to be a source of trouble, he'll stay away. Please give me a K:Architecture roll (my sheet says +5 modifier, but it's at least one higher than that since my INTMOD is +5 and Knowledges aren't usable without at least one skill rank; it might be as much as +10 if that +5 was my ranks, which seems likely). If I get what you deem to be an adequate result on the roll, please invent some structural fault or code violation in the guardpost that the autistic wizard can simply point out. Terger and Rhodes and Custodio will all be more capable than me of parlaying that information into a dressing-down of the guard.

Your last in character post says Thistle is going to run towards the diggers. She takes an AoO...

Single claw attack (AoO): 1d20+7=18 (miss)

Also, is she just going to run her full movement or take a shot at the other dark reptilian as she passes him?

Okay, i added up the total number under your skills and it adds up exactly to 77 skill points, so what you've listed there are only ranks. Here is what they should be with Attribute bonuses and skill synergies...

Level 6 Skills (77 skill points, all spent in-class): Balance +7, Concentration +9, Craft +5 (untrained), Decipher Script +14, Disable Device +10, Knowledge: Arcana+14, Knowledge: Architecture & Engineering +10, Move Silently +10, Perform (speed drawing) +1, Profession (draftsman) +6, Search +9, Spellcraft+10 (includes synergy from Knowledge [arcana]), Sleight of Hand +7, Spot +10. Other Synergies: Search +11 (involving secret doors and other compartments), Use Magic Device +2 (involving scrolls, untrained)

So, that is indeed a +10 for Knowledge (architecture and engineering): 1d20+10=13

With that roll, Relgar doesn't garner much from looking at the structure. It doesn't appear to be in disrepair and nothing seems out of the ordinary structurally. He could nitpick about some of the vines clinging to the stonework but none of it looks like it is damaging the building. In fact, there are so much foliage near the base of the building that he can't really see the foundation properly.

He could try to invent a problem in his mind's eye but it would be a bluff for sure. These guards likely know every inch of the house. The is one window with a broken shutter that isn't 100% secure, but using it as a distraction would be a stretch. One thing of note, however, are the banners hanging from the top of the two towers. There is something, odd, about the placement of them. Something that makes Relgar think death or possibly mourning.

Angel, I don't see you on Facebook, so I'm going to point this out here...

You want to use Thistle's ability to detect evil, but it is a 60-ft. cone-shaped emanation and Thistle is 80 feet away from headman of the diggers.

Post is finally up. Sorry it took so long. We had a dangerous heat warning here in Edmonton last week. Today is the first day which has been bearable. Note that the rest of the week until Sunday is going to be very hot here in Edmonton, as well. Plus, the 18th is my birthday.
