1180.1 part 3
You're right! I didn't think about how old my family would be; my image of them is from Astris's childhood. Let's call it James's oldest son, my nephew, Robert.
For the extra +3 in calculating the Hours astrological duration for The Obedient Chest.
Right, I meant Score. I was debating using the favorable hour but because i had such a high score I took it out of the flavor text. I forgot to take it out of the crunchy bits too.
Pride or no, I don't see the need to BBQ a kid for stealing a penny. But if I notice that same kid hanging around later, it could go poorly for him. Mostly this contributes to my already sour mood. Its time for me to be sleeping and I'm tired.
I puff myself up, and in my best, courtly Norman French "What a band of honorable and noble knights. Fresh from Arthur's table you must be. Here I am, a noble's son, mis treated and oppressed by this mean peasant. And yet you do not stir in defense of my honor. In the hall of my father, such am impudent animal as this would be whipped for treating even a serving child so. Much less the manor's own son. I bring silver to buy my passage, and meet uncalled derision and offense. Were I not half this man's age, I'd be within my rights to call for blades and test his soft tongue against hard steel. Will not one of you rise in my defense?"
I'm trying to shame the knights into shutting the sailor up, and at least letting me walk away with dignity, and maybe even forcing him to let me on board. 5/-1 (+2 Com +4 Etiquette: Nobility -1 Nocturnal -6 Blatant Gift (i don't recall from your rules if this is still a mechanical effect, or if there is just your option of fiat failure/botch).
Right, if I can get on a ship soon this won't be a problem. Otherwise, we are going to have to consider some different ideas. My plan would be to find a ship with fewer crew- a smaller cog or the like that is manned by no more than five or six people. i look for a boat that is moored down a pier, someplace farther away from the hustle and bustle of the main dock thoroughfare. Once i can locate a suitable opportunity 2 (+2 Per +1 Awareness -1 Nocturnal), i'll lay the Aura of Rightful Authority on the captain. Cs:15-aura (11 TeFo +1 Sta +3 method -1 Nocturnal). Once he's suitably "lubricated" I'll ask to be taken on board and into his office. You see, i'm very tired and would like to rest.
Well, I'm not carrying much on my person that could be stolen. I have a single pouch of silver that has enough to buy passage on a ship several times over. its pretty heavy so I'm unlikely to not notice it go missing. As the only object of value except my sword, I'll keep a hand resting on it. My Notice Pick Pocket would be 3 (+2 Per +2 Awareness: Alertness, -1 nocturnal).
