[22:39] Luis: what is your character’s name going to be???
[22:39] Josh: Ranger Dave
[22:40] Josh: woah that is joes bros name backwards
[22:40] Luis: “dave” how fantastical
[22:41] Luis: Okay so
[22:41] Luis: isn’t ranger dave a monk
[22:41] Josh: he is not called ranger dave
[22:41] Josh: i lied
[22:42] Josh: iam thinking
[22:42] Josh: Fisty Cuffs
[22:42] Luis: and is he a half-orc also
[22:42] Josh: Des Armesyou
[22:43] Luis: did you decide half-orc or no
[22:43] Josh: yeah
[22:43] Luis: can it not be a pun please
[22:43] Josh: Hahaha
[22:43] Josh: Grognak
[22:43] Luis: really okay sure~
[22:44] Josh: i dont know maybe
[22:44] Luis: that is the barbarian from fallout
[22:44] Josh: i know
[22:44] Luis: So anyway, on the day that your character finished his monk training, his master took him aside
[22:45] Luis: Grognak, you’ve done well in your training. The road of the monk is a hard one, and few can travel it - fewer still of your savage heritage.
[22:46] Luis: He hands you a wooden box, about the size of a hatbox.
[22:47] Josh: >open hatbox
[22:47] Luis: Inside you find: a strange mask
a strange note
a strange smell
[22:48] Luis: Your master interrupts you.
[22:48] Josh: uh buh
[22:48] Luis: You no doubt know of the island north of here, abandoned by all law and order.
[22:48] Josh: yeah
[22:48] Josh: islawnd
[22:49] Luis: It is my feeling that your journy should begin there, go north to the island of Rannice and help whomever you can. It’s been too long since there has been any Order there.
[22:50] Luis: This mask should help you if you lose your way.
[22:50] Josh: mask, check
[22:51] Luis: It’s a light wooden mask, with two big round eyeholes! There doesn’t seem to be anything in the holes but looking through them from here you have a hard time seeing anything through them.
[22:52] Josh: read note
[22:52] Luis: The note smells like some kind of exotic fruit. Maybe this is what a rainbow smells like?
[22:52] Luis: it reads:
[22:54] Luis: CONGRATULATIONS!
you are one of the lucky twenty-five
this note entitles the bearer to ONE (1) lifetime filled with WILD THINGS and GRAND ACHIEVEMENTS
REDEEMABLE WHERE EVER FINE FORTUNES ARE SOLD
there is a crudely drawn apple in the corner.
[22:56] Josh: OH MY
[22:56] Josh: ive got a golden ticket
[22:57] Luis: then bla bla bla you hop a boat to Rannice and shortly find out that some people have decided to form a sort of militia
[22:57] Luis: it seems like a worthwhile thing to investigate and that will get you to the beginning of the first session
[23:05] Luis: anyway the mask
[23:05] Luis: once per day per monk level you can look through the mask and concentrate to receive a TRIPPY VISION that lasts one round
[23:07] Luis: the usefulness of the vision will be randomized in a way that i don’t feel like telling you about
[23:08] Josh: hahaq
[23:09] Luis: in general the mask provides the following benefits: +2 versus FEAR
+1 versus BLINDNESS
-2 to ALL CHA SKILLS
IMMUNITY: COLOR SPRAY
[23:09] Josh: color spray
[23:10] Luis: RAINBOWS and other natural phenomena LOOK MORE AMAZING
[23:10] Luis: color spray is a spell that causes blindness at low levels and stun/paralysis at higher levels
[23:10] Josh: ah ok
[23:11] Luis: but rainbows are your bros so they aren’t paralyzing you
[23:11] Luis: and it’s not a useless immunity, things actually do use it sometimes
[23:12] Luis: i hope you like this pic i drew because it’s potentially pretty rad
[23:12] Luis: i am actually excited to go home and color it
[23:12] Josh: yay
[23:13] Luis: oh i forgot
[23:14] Luis: your mask makes people look kind of weird to you when you wear it, that is why your cha suffers
[23:14] Josh: haha nice
[23:14] Luis: you wanted to be an acid monk, here he is
[23:15] Josh: yeah
[23:15] Josh: its great
[23:15] Luis: good i am glad you like it
[23:15] Luis: because i like i also
[23:15] Luis: so i think it’s going to work out
