I would suggest that we start a new area on July 21 that doesn't seem huge and travel is not far for the introduction of new players.

Although I am looking forward to the Lonely Tower, Boneyard of Barons, Hall of the Kings, Deep Gnome Village, and Castle Holt, I suggest to just inspect what is going on in Freiholt.

The PCs had heard rumors about this and it is very near (to the south) of Holt-Lindeck.
Eremis wants to make sure that the way to the Boneyard of Barons is free (I assume it is on the way). In addition, the Borderland Explorers have explored the east, found Orcs and Demons, and dealt with the latter. In the north there is the road to Halberstein, which should be relatively safe. To the west the land is flat and can easily be watched. But to the south there could be dangers that are able to surprise the inhabitants of Holt-Lindeck. He wants to make sure that there is no infestation of monsters growing there.

Thus, what do you think? Is my expectation correct that this could fit into 1 session?
Is it ok to choose this 2 days before the session? Or did you plan for something else, Jochen?

Who will join the session? Is this Hrgungdvar, (coldculture), (Tim), (Mokopolis), and Eremis?
Or would you rather have less players in an introductiory session, Jochen?

I am quite open, although I had a look into the Black Fang Knolls in mind. I am quite sure that one session will not suffice.

@Rohwar and @coldculture will be there. We want to start at 7 pm. Will you be able to make that time?

Plans for today have vaporized. We will have a completely open table instead.

In contrast, although Eremis has no idea about this, we as players already know that Teo found out that several different schools of magic are necessary to traverse the tower. In order to reach the level of fire we need fire magic, level of water we need water magic, and so on. Teo has wind, Nichuan has fire, Hogar has probably things we all don't know about. I totally don't mind taking more than one mage to the tower! Especially if there is a cat demon, who would be better in purring words with it?! All schools seem to be necessary to unlock its secrets. And who knows? Maybe the next time we will not even meet the demon but come to a completely different place?

As always, I will only be able to start somewhere between 20:30 and 21:00.
But as Björn hasn’t seen the tower yet, you would probably fill this with explanations etc. I assume, so no reason not to start.

Note that Eremis will bring some people, horses and a wagon. He has agreed to secure the remains of the fallen warriors (skeletons around the tower) for their families. In return they will help us transport provisions, and transport back any things we find.

Please remember to buy rations (3 per day), potions, and loading of power items.

Sorry. Rations I need to buy more. Forgotten. Power Items are charged and Hogar has spent a total of 10000 Copper. Including what he already had. How many rations again?
