tabbard-tabbad manifested from nothing and dropping into its hand,room full of martial weapons with some presence in the room.
gold – hobgoblin view goes foggy, fancy white tile room with odd everburning torches static static gets heavierm, BOOM 9 psychic, 10 falling damage of getting thrown out. OW. Need people running defense, and dont roll low. Need a dedicated ritual room.

Staff of Bardic Charm properties

Enemy boss was “killed” by a gigantic fireball from the mages, enhanced by Hannah, but he kept going. History checks revealed he was wearing Mourner’s Armor (details on Researched Items), and would be basically unkillable for about 10 days. His attack and damage were raised, but his defenses were low, so he was held in place while Joaquin encased him in a stonewall cube, 20 feet per side. Afterwards, had to pay off the mages to keep the block of stone for ourselves rather than let them take it. No one but the party knows about the armor inside. Need to come up with a more permanent solution for the armor. One possibility is to ask one of Fizzban’s apprentices to disenchant it when they return in a few months.

rep winterhaven+23
rep hammerfast+42

rep church bahamut -9

town rep + 30

250g for battle casting

24th back in town with block of stone

rorona gets an apprentice(she explodes things for a while)

Hannah entered the star bag for science, and sucked the magic out in some way. The warforged is now approximately human-sized, very shiny, and female. And apparently can fly too. Joaquin entered after the stars went out and returned with a golden shovel to use as a rod. The bag is now drawing in ambient magic to recharge, so we are feeding in daily powers to speed up the process and prevent too much drain on the ambient magic.
