I guess, their chances of succeeding on this quest took a bit of a nosedive.

Ah, the player that treats “derailing the plot” like a “holy duty + olympic discipline” combo. Classic.

Thankgully, I haven’t ever truly had that issue as a DM, or seen it all in years.

P.S.: Go ahead. Tell me it’s always the DM’s fault and that the DM must always account for it, even when it’s clearly just the player being an intentional pain sometimes.

DM:
“Cake shot the nosarrow from the Nostrilseeker*, but the closest nostril was hers. The arrow takes a sharp turn and hits her in the nose. The arrow has no tip, so it results in just a nosebleed and some lost dignity, if she ever had any.”

*) The bow looks a bit less elaborate than the Nostrilseeker, but I don’t recall she ever lost or broke it.

Wouldn’t her nostril ALWAYS be the closest one to the bow..? I’m not sure I want this particular can of worms opened, tbh.

I’ve always interpreted it as hitting the nostril of whatever she’s targeting (if applicable). In this case, in the absence of a target, the closest nostril is actually the nose on her arrow. Meaning the arrow she fired would make some pretty fancy and not entirely ecluidian movements trying to hit itself.

Easy; it is magical, so it always seeks the closest nostril to her point of aim. Thus, generally, it will not be seeking her nostril, because there’s something living where the arrow is headed. But, in this case, the closest living thing to the terminus is her… so her nostril becomes the target.

Why do I have the feeling Loff is the other soul the old guy wants

Hence why he just happened to show up at this particular moment.

Spirits are drawn to things that are significant to them. Loff’s son certainly qualifies as “significant”, so it could be that just player 1s presence was enough to draw him closer

At least it shouldn’t get very far with the extra weight and drag.

I wonder if this is where the random arrows from CAD’s early days came from..

My only question is….

How many people made their Dark Urges look like Cake?

Look, it’s important to see if the concept works. Next time they need to find or lure a lost soul it’ll be very useful to have this test data.

If that arrow sniffs out one of Tobyn’s parents it will be snortingly hilarious.
‘Look honey he has your nose!’ becomes ‘Apparently I now have his…’
