    Luciana nodded without hesitation. "After all, these kind ones have given us shelter for the night. We must repay them in some manner."

    Sharian nodded as well. "Goblins are a threat to everyone and as Luciana said, they gave us a place to rest tonight, it is the least that we can do," Sharian replied.

    "Okay...the goblins are unaware of your presence, so any exploring you do in the town carries the risk of them finding you." Brock explains how the adventure, and its biggest challenge, will work. "Ash, you have a cloaking spell, right?"

    "Of course!" Ash smiles.

    "While you are exploring, you guys will be cloaked." Brock explains "Most fighting will increase the risk of being discovered. But if you can find the ringleader of the goblins, and defeat her, the goblins will flee. Everyone understand?"

    "Sensible idea; only fools rush headlong into battle... though, sometimes there is no choice but to fight," Keda replied. "Do you have any intel on the size and strength of the goblin horde, and its leader - just in case we get caught and are forced to fight?"

    Brock looked over the enemy list in the adventure book. "Treona conjures an image of a bronze dragon in her crystal ball. She tells you..."

    In his "Treona" voice again, he explains "I have seen this dragon rallying the goblins to her cause. If you can find a way to slay her, the goblins will flee the town. The problem is, I don't know where her lair may be in the town."

    As himself, he explains "Dragons and dragon Pokémon come in two flavors--Jewel and Metal. In both types, some are friends, and some are foes. Of the metallic dragons, bronze is the weakest on the totem pole. They are still very hard to level 1 characters--while it is possible to slay them at level 1 with enough people and the right mix of classes, it's generally not a good idea to try this."

    "Don't remind me about the Tomb of Terror incident..." Ash shudders at a memory.

    "Relax, I'm not running that adventure again unless I feel confident the group can work together." Brock replies.

    "'The Tomb of Terror' is one of the most notorious Chambers adventures because of how hard it is." Misty explains. "The only time we've ever run it, the party was wiped. Ash, Serena, and I had to make new versions of our regular characters, and the guests had to make new characters.

    Keda - and Robert - nodded solemnly, internally wincing at the tale; a goblin boss was one thing, but dragons were a whole different issue entirely. "We will definitely need to work hard to avoid combat, then. What will the stone look like? Are there runes written into them, or anything of that sort of recognizable mark?"

    Brock projects an image of a black stone with runes on it from the adventure book. "The stone will look like this." he explains as Treona.

    As himself, he tells the group "Where the stone is is unknown to you, but every time we run this adventure, I randomize where it is to keep groups on their toes."

    Carolyn/Luciana nods. "Understood. And about these other 'arcane writings' in the village... how can we recognize those?"

    Brock projects the image of an arcane book. "These are the writings I seek." he explains in character as Treona.

    As himself, he explains. "These are a little easier to find--there's only three possible places they could be."

    Carolyn paused, intrigued. "So where are these three places, then?"

    "The writings are possibly in the library ruins, the temple ruins, or in the elder's house, which is intact." Brock replies. "The stone can potentially be anywhere in the ruined town. It's possible to get in, get the stone, and get out, but that won't get rid of the goblins."

    "What is the best way to get into said town?" asked Sharian. He didn't want to go to this unknown place without knowing at least how to get in it in the safest possible way.

    "You are going to be cloaked, so it should be fairly easy to get inside." Brock replied. "Bear in mind that fighting will alert the goblins, and the cloak will dispel if you are spotted. So you need to be on guard."

    He put up a map of the ruined town. "The front gate is guarded, but the west gate is not--you'll have better luck getting in that way."

    Robert studied the map closely as he asked, "Are there any other things we should be aware of before we head out?" Granted that they weren't going to leave for the town until morning - barring some sort of emergency that would necessitate moving out sooner - but it made sense to be thorough.

    "Again, any sort of battle will alert the goblins." Brock reminds you. "The cloak will not dispel immediately, but if you are spotted or alert the goblins four times, the cloak will dispel, and it's Game Over for you!"

    "So we'll need to avoid even wild animals," Keda replied. "Shouldn't be too difficult as long as the cloak holds. Anyway, we should probably rest so that we're ready for tomorrow's quest."

    (Sorry, was thinking like a person IRL would think when faced with a storm at night and taking shelter, even if they are in good health)

    "Then again... given that we're in good health," Robert added after thinking about it, "and we're hearty enough to weather a storm, even at night." He looked at his friends and asked, "Think you're up for some midnight madness?"

    "Okay then...Ash, if you would, please." Brock smiles.

    "Guiding light, shed magic power from above! Cloak!" Ash calls in character.

    "A holy light surrounds you all, and in the blink of an eye, it's like you are not even there to those who cannot sense magic." Brock reports.

    He explains out of character "You guys are now cloaked, and for now, enemies can't see you--Allies and friendly creatures with the Sense Magic skill can see you, however. If you alert the goblins in any way, the cloak will weaken. If you get four alerts, the cloak will dispel, and it's Game Over for you guys."

    "What type of creatures in the area that we are in have the Sense Magic Skill?" Shadow asked. "And is there the possibility that some enemies might have the skill as well?"
