Teth has been the most selfless with equipment.. but without us hitting any search points.. it feels tough to buy that.

With an auto surge and the ability to immobilize.....hmmmm

what are you guys thinking?

The Bow gives me an extra yellow dice, +2 damage on a surge instead of +1, and has Pierce 1. So on a Surge I'm generally going to be dealing 2 higher damage + whatever I can roll on a yellow dice.

That would make Teth a much better damage dealer, but I don't know if we can afford the bow at the moment.

The bow would be excellent for Teth.

To get the bow youll need to scrape together 75g (equivalent to selling a 150g item), with the other 25g coming from selling his starter bow. Youd have to give something up that you bought last round, like the ring of power :/

On the flipside Challara could sell her starting rune plus scorpion helmet and you could afford that rune.

Can I suggest something that goes against my gaming nature?

Lets not buy a thing, tank the entire next episode and focus completely on going for the search points. It means a minimum 200g if we get all the search points from both maps plus possible treasure we can sell (or better items than we currently have). We can then sit down before the finale and arm ourselves to be the best we possibly can.

When I say tank I don't mean give it up completely but we need to aim to hit at least 3 of the 4 points each map. If we could hit 600gp or more, maybe with a treasure piece or two with some serious luck, then I would suggest we could each purchase a game-changing item (150gp each depending on what we need someone might be able to take a 200gp item) and make ourselves a competitive force for the finale. 600gp is a big ask but its possible if we can get them all.

Thoughts?

You won't get the full choice next time, just another five at random. So you might find you miss something critical if you let it go.

The thing about hitting search points is a VERY GOOD IDEA though, better late than never!

There have been very few opportunities to hit more points than we have though. We have been trying to win at the scenarios and we just never had much room to go point hunting and fulfil the needs of the mission.

Sucks to suggest ignoring the mission at hand but I think it probably all we can do to give us a chance at the end.

I say we let Steelhorns get either

Mace of Kellos
Dragontooth Hammer (preference)

for more hitting power.

Hammer hits harder (although it works best if you ditch the shield which would be silly) but I think the healing of the Mace is not to be sniffed at personally.

I'll be spending my two XP on Expert Blow:

If I'm going to play the card, I'll write it in the Orokos description (since it needs to be decided before I roll).

See as no one has argued I will take Mace of Kellos (sell sword + 25gp).
