@Es: Herb Lore sounds great, that leaves us the 3 Physcial skill points to distribute. Brawl 3 is too much indeed, and 2 still sounds high, too - she strikes me more as the type to avoid confrontation than to dive headfirst in it.
A higher Athletics rating - to account for the comined running, climbing, swimming, etc - starts to sound as a good alternative. And since you miscounted and have only 2 points left, I see, make it Athletics 2 and Brawl 1. Voilà.

This is what Josie looks like. She's very small and looks a lot younger than her age, that is, until you look into her eyes.
Then you see she has seen more than most already.....

Looking good. Now for your blessing: care to pick a suitable animal?

Furthermore, unless you have other ideas, I think Mellie has always been so concerned with your well-being that you are one of the select few (and currently the only one) to have found board and lodging with the Fineses themselves; you have a seperate room in the rear area of the inn, next to Albert and Mellie.

I choose Teal

What a lucky girl I am. My own room. Had to share a bed with three sisters at home. Josie will do her absolute best to please the Fines.

Alright. Josie's Blessing:

Talons
You are able to change both hands and feet - simultaneously or separately - into three-toed talons; feet grow in a Y-shape similar to a bird's, the hands retain the opposable thumb while the fingers weld together into two large ones. The talons give you a +1 dice pool bonus to all tests involving grip, and cause lethal damage when used in combat, with a +1 bonus.
Needless to say, the come with social drawbacks in a lot of situations. Additionally, the talons may spawn themselves when you are under severe pressure or in danger. Causing the talons to appear always costs one point of Willpower.

Besides the talents, Josie gets an extra point of Manipulation.
Please update your character accordingly.

Brace yourselves. Here we go.

@Es: although I like the touch and at this moment it makes no difference, naturally I will be the one manipulating the NPCs....

@ Lucky: I know :). Just read the facebook dialoge. For some reason I just thought it would be a kind of routine thing. Josie pointing out some misbehaving costumer and Hugo making them pay, then throwing them out.... Not much NPC ing at all, but a change to handel something together and practice te non verbal communication. As always, things that seem quite simple turn out to be anything but....

Is it fair to assume that Josie and the stranger are shadowdancing till Hugo is turned on the case by Albert?

I'd also like a little clarification on the chronology here... I guess I'm still waiting to see how the escaping customer reacts to my shout?

Ah.. well, I didn't read the dozens of messages you exchanged after I went to bed, and relevant information should be in the thread anyhow. So, humour me: what exactly is the misbehaviour we're talking about here - leaving without paying?

He hasn't payed and it sure looked like he was trying to leave... But he could maybe still get away with saying he was going to at the bar...maybe....
Josie is not really upset by this, kinda just deals with it the way it comes.
Think this happens every now and then. (Working in pubs for years I know some even try with money in their pockets)

As a player I'm waiting to see how the customer reacts to Klears shout, before I make my next move.


BTW: Josie is carrying a stew for one, in case you are wondering how the hell she is waving a giant pot around

Right ho. Let me take this back to the main thread....

[EDIT: I simply updated the previous post. Ball's in your court.]

@Es: please update Josie's info with the backstory you sent me two nights ago. It'll be player-only info, but that's alright - it'll add a lot of flavour to the character and gives a better understanding of her past and motivations.

Approximately how big is the rat we're dealing with? Like a hamster? A small rabbit? I'm letting my imagination work and tend to think it's quite enormous =)

Also, I guess we should let Josie react as well... I'll refrain from posting for now.

A decent rabbit sounds about right. And great minds think alike it seems. I thought it'd be decent to give her something to aim at once she remembers her forum password. If she's not online this evening, we'll just continue (possibly with a small edit) and I'll put Josie to work in another bit of story.
