Morgenstern
Lagrand climbs into the tube after you, seeing that you're about to go exploring the rest of the temple.

The statues look... normal, as far as you can tell. You touch one with Identify, and don't detect any enchantments or animation spells on them.

However, as you pass by the same statue... it begins to move. A glow lights up from its visor as it draws a massive, broken sword.

"HUMANS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE TEMPLE. THIS TEMPLE BELONGS TO THE FAIRY KIND NOW," its voice booms. The voice is... harsh, heavy, almost demonic sounding. "YOU WILL LEAVE IMMEDIATELY OR YOU WILL BE PUNISHED."

Lagrand stays silent, his eyes wandering. He seems to be sizing the statue up, evaluating his next move before it notices him.

You ask the statue if it knows anyone willing to sleep with a lot of goblins at once.

"EWW. PERVERT! I KNEW IT! ALL HUMANS ARE PERVERTS! YOU ARE DONE, MISTER!"

The statue tightens its grip on its sword, preparing for battle. Lagrand shrugs, giving you a... confused look? A judgemental one? It's dark, it's hard to tell. It's definitely a look, though.

Deinforce the statue and then stick your wand directly into his visor and activate it.
Um, just to be clear I meant the wind wand.

Given the reaction of the (probably) fairy inside the suit of armour sticking our other "wand" in it's visor might also work.

Tell the fairy to come out of that armor and explain the sex thing is to try to prevent a race war and it's actually the goblins that are perverts. Possibly not in that order.

In fact, lets make a pact to explain the race war thing before asking about the goblin orgy in most situations where it wouldn't be much funnier not to.

Cast Deinforce on both suits of armor (just in case) and ask Legrand if he can somehow pin both down, we came here to talk with the fairies, not to fight them.

The party tab doesn't show Lagrand

Lagrand's a Guest-Star party member; he won't be added until we recruit him for realsies, if ever if his dedication to being left alone holds.

Ok, but otherwise shouldn't the caracter sheets tell more? Like how much HP and Mana/Energy caracters have left? So that we wont send in Valley to facetank stuff when she only has 10 ho left, and could also show skill proficiency (0-100) so we know who should equip what weapons, maybe if you click on expand caracter sheet or something, would be nice in my opinion... but IDK, might take too much time uodating stuff then...

Health and energy aren't an exact science. You'll mostly be able to tell from context how tired/injured somebody is.

I might add more about stats and the like, though.

And as Tech pointed out, Lagrand's not officially joining the party yet.

The HP and Energy thing could still be usefull in numbers, so we know if we can use a staff one more time before passing out or if we should just book it, sorry for my bad english btw, not my first nor my second language....

And I have two more questions: Is there gunpowder at this point and time in the game or will it be something that gets researched somewhere along the line?How did you get yor cat to wear those glasses without ripping your face off?

No gunpowder, and it's not my cat but I believe the answer was "have a very calm cat."

Oh, no gunpowder? Well, that kinda blows, I had an idea in mind but now it's impossible... maybe if... nah, no way Inzo can use wands as an ingredient, welp, nevermind then...
Tech 2nd May 2018, 3:08 PM edit delete reply
Taunt it, and see if we can lead it back to the door. If we enrage the pilot beyond reason, we might get them to knock it down for us...

Run away. It's a statue of armor, not a sprinter. Also, the fairy or fairies inside might come out to keep up with us if we run fast enough.

+1 to explaining the race war and to deinforcing the armour. If that doesn’t work, It’s a huge clunky armour set, you’re probably faster than it. Tie it’s legs together with your reinforced rope vines.

Yeah definitely a +1 to actually explaining the race war situation. And just try to explain the situation of the visit in general to not get in a fight with all the faries.
