Re: 002d: Lair of the Snake Person

Several pieces of jewelry have the same symbol on it.

Connoisseur lets you sort the jewelry into several separate sets, and it seems like this symbol appears once in each set, usually on a ring, sometimes on a locket or other necklace type.

Re: 002c: Hospital Recovery

Results relayed in other medium. And, the orderly frowns and realizes she's speaking to a medium... Seems appropriate for her to usher you out for now...

Re: 002c: Hospital Recovery

"Probably a few hours. That guy... I don't know. It's not natural. I'll be glad when the asylum takes him off our hand." The orderly will say. "Look, If you miss him he'll be at the asylum. But, yeah, he'll probably be screaming in a few hours."

Re: 002d: Lair of the Snake Person

The apartment is on the third floor, plus half a floor (submerged basement kinda deal) so, the window is about 30-ish feet up. The back alley has clothes lines, awnings and other windows that allow for a climb down*, or ways to break ones fall. Kin** could likely make it in either form or possibly l...

Re: 002d: Lair of the Snake Person

So, in order to speed this along, as there is nothing else that needs a roll: Ms. Ryan does not trap her apartment. Your paranoia slows you down, but there is nothing dangerous beyond the mythos papers (assuming you can translate and read them), the rats (which are about as dangerous as an angry rat...

Re: 002d: Lair of the Snake Person

There's a lot of information that can be acquired. the list was already mentioned for what you are visually scanning for . The identity paperwork* is most of the loose papers, and an unfinished manuscript** is the rest. (plus incidentals like a shopping list. I'm not going to fabricate a lot of addi...

Re: 002c: Hospital Recovery

"Complications? He should have been dead multiple times. I've seen healthy adults in their 30s die from this much stress and this guy is... ancient." The nurse grumbles as the old man drifts off into a drugged stupor. "So, probably not? To be honest, I'm kinda surprised the level of drugs we're givi...

Re: 002d: Lair of the Snake Person

Inside the well-furnished apartment, with dozens of books, maps, and adventuring equipment layed out... Due to the layout of the building (a central hallway that bisects each floor), it's clear the hidden room does not have a door into the hallway. The only exit would be out a back window, or back i...

Re: ESP vs Astral Projection thoughts

Well, I mentioned pulp vs mystery before, so as such... I need some way to set things as 'off limits' to scrying. Current thoughts: Elder Sign: This creates a penalty to using powers into an area when etched around it. Honestly, that works fairly well. It requires the person to be a sorcerer, so... ...

Re: 002d: Lair of the Snake Person

So, inside the well-furnished apartment, with dozens of books, maps, and adventuring equipment layed out... A tall man is rummaging through papers at a desk. When the buzzer rings, he swears, and pulls a hidden switch somewhere in one of the bookshelves, which opens. He ducks into a secret room* and...
