The real cause of all the trouble is that my laptop is a decade old.

Whooops, I'd forgotten about him. But he's glad to have been kept in the loop, too.

That'll cause problems for sure.

By the by. A long time ago I made a standing claim that everything said in Elene Felix would automatically translate for Theresa where possible, both to keep her in the loop and also to try and help teach her the language over time.

Probably fair to assume that stopped at some point. I think it was back when we were on the boats to Rendor when I made that suggestion. But I'd like to bring that back up. Felix keeps Theresa in the know and teaches her the meaning of words when things aren't on fire.

The mage in the room has nothing to say on the subject?

Piper is sitting very quietly and looking a bit distracted at the moment.

Lady Sephrenia left town? She was there when we first showed up, after all.

To the best of your knowledge, she has not left town.

She is, however, not in the room.

Perhaps she's just a late sleeper?

Mysterious.

Can anyone make use of a sidekick in play, or just the person with the associated stunt? If possible I'd like to send Theresa to team Edgar Allan Foe so she can boost the social rolls needed to stop Raven and help fight should it come down to it.

The person with the associated talent gets to choose where the sidekick goes. As a general rule of thumb, the sidekick will usually want to go with the person with the talent, and might get a bit upset if sent to other places too often.

Though occasionally sending Theresa out to help others should be fine.

So I have an idea.

Can I use my Engineering skill to build a series of mortar launchers? Rig a whole bunch of them along the wall aiming at the enemy forces and rig them to shoot every last explosive we have on our person in the event of them launching an assault on us. One big series of explosion that would hopefully take out a significant portion of the enemy.

If we have time after I make the launchers that I could put together more explosives from local materials. Make for a bigger boom. Lots of varied effects. Concussions. Fire. Poison.

It's certainly a thing that Felix can do. However, you might want to think carefully about what Piper's just said before you do it.

Where has Sir Sparhawk been, lately? I don't recall having any interactions with him in a while. If he's around I'd like to involve him in our party planning.

Also, can I spend a fate point to say that the new Terran guy that came over can be a Temporary Sidekick? I'm not sure what it is I need but I can't help but feel like a sidekick with some skills would be somewhat useful.

If you ask Dolmant's servants, you'll find out that Sir Sparhawk went out to the walls to see what was going on with the army out there before you got up. He hasn't come back yet, but to be fair, there's a lot of army out there to inspect, and he's not expected back yet. (He did send a preliminary report to Vanire.)

And no, no temporary sidekicks. The disadvantage to sending off your sidekick with someone else is that you don't have her help anymore.

Alright. I guess at best I can ask Edward to be an extra hand when I'm constructing things to make it all go faster. Hand me tools and such. Hold gears in place. All that. Really hoping they sent for help via motorcycle.

Would it be possible to ask some of the characters to do some stuff in absentia until the players get back? Specifically having Roger and Sam working on chemical concoctions like what was used back at the last siege with the Seeker? That would be really useful to have.
