Administrative details

  • Brillig wanted to roll some random attributes, but it was getting late, so he decided to put it off until the next session.
  • After gaining level 4, Drump acquired the Transfer Enchantment ritual and can now perform that service for other characters.
    • Drump’s fee is 2% of the enchanted item value, rounded up to the next gold piece. This is on top of the 25gp cost for ritual components and the cost of the receiving mundane item.

Next Delve

  • Will be DMed by eXalos.
  • Is likely to be on 2011-07-16.
  • Will likely also be level 4.
