There's definitely a mystery here, and I'm looking to solve it. Even if my character's instincts are all wrong.

Incidentally, can I take just a +2 on Alertness? I think that'll be the right level to leave it at.

You're free to take a 3, 2, or 1 on any skill that gets rolled during your turn or abstain and take a free skill point to use later. Up to a maximum of 15 skill points at the moment.

Speaking of, the Dwarf and the Human made checks with Survival, Investigation, and Alertness and the Dwarf made an additional Might check. You can take points in all those skills or abstain and bank free skill points to use as you see fit later on. If I missed anything let me know.

I'll add more details from the +2 to Alertness in a little bit.

The game seems to be going well. Just a trifle spooky (finger wiggle).

So I would like to decline to unlock might at this time for a skill point, but also unlock Alertness at 3. That okay?

That's fine. What about Survival and Investigation?

I will decline Investigation, but unlock survival at 2.

I'll abstain from Survival to get to get a free skill point for later, but take Investigation at +2, I think.

Alright, that'll max you out at 15 skill points (including the two spare points). You can use those points to boost skills you have right now or wait until the first refresh gain when you can unlock more skill points.

Also that'll keep you from taking any stress from the Creature from the firs attack.

So the Drow heard what was pretty clearly a heavy door slam shut and a few thumps against it coming from the back room, correct?

The Drow doesn't exactly know what it was he heard, but it did rather sound like that. It's a safe assumption.

Is the pistol in working order and etc once maintained and cleaned?

You won't know for sure until you fire it. It's been sitting out for some time, so you'll want to have a sit down and spend a fair while making absolutely sure everything is in proper order.

That being said, it's pretty solidly built and seems to have held up well enough.

Then he's working on it until such time as it's done. He's not loading it, though; that would get in the way of using it as a fire starter.

Just in passing; if the powder in the horn has been degraded by dampness then the pistol is largely worthless for anything but a fire starter. Unless he can find more pistol grained gunpowder somewhere or essentially remake the contents of the horn into new powder from scratch then the Drow is going to have to rely on his bastard sword.
