I suggested a few stock items their characters would knowingly consider for a dungeon crawl. Kay and Sue never thought to purchase any rope, but Tess changed that, buying a coil along with some chalk, a mirror, holy water, torches and spikes. They decided that Alina’s spear could serve in place of lugging around an awkward 10 foot pole.

Circe was not about to put up with being slowed down by the halfling Starlight and insisted she purchase a pony. Kay was sold on the idea once she realized she could stash more loot on her character sheet without having to worry about encumbrance.

Tess: Ready?
Kay: Wait. I want to get special saddle bags for my pony.

Kay bought saddle bags with secret compartments, diligently marking the item’s weight and where each one was located with either “Me”, “Pony”, or “Secret” on her character sheet.

Tess: Can we go now?
Kay: Wait! I want to see if Galem wants to come.

Galem had his reasons for not having any interest in exploring the tomb of a dead necromancer. After trying her best to convince Galem to come, he was not budging.

Kay (her arms crossed in a huff): You’re mean.
DM: Me? Galem isn’t interested. Remember what he said about the Tomb of Horrors in the forest? Galem doesn’t want to go.
Kay: But you’re playing Galem! You can make him go.
Galem: Look, Starlight. It’s not personal. It has nothing to do with the elves I see you skipping around town with, although that would be plenty of reason for Rhen. I just can’t do it. Maybe, I’ll explain over an ale some time, okay?
Starlight: Alright.

With the promise of ale, Starlight headed out of the Winter Wolf to meet up with Alina and Circe at the fountain. The two had been taking advantage of Starlight’s new pony, loading up supplies of their own in the various saddle bags.

Tess: Can we go now?
Kay: Wait! Let’s go see Rhen.
