Many say “don’t stick it in crazy” but I always had a rule for that too: Don’t fall asleep and never stay over. Think “American Pie II”, that poor guy on the roof, only I was woke up like that and hands free…
Worst. ER. Trip. Ever. Asotone burns like hell too…
She thought it was funny…

Well, it’s not like he could SMELL how bad his warm, cozy, tight-fitting sleeping bag was. 😛

And it’s easier to create and use than one in a tauntaun.

Well a horse is still better than an undead ram (@Flintlocke’s “Episode 12: Mounting Difficulties”)

Neither, you give me way too much credit. I occasionally re-read some of the old pages here (which I heartily recommend, btw) and that one happens to be in the bunch I’ve seen recently. Happy accident.

I do that often, mainly for strips that only post monthly or bi-weekly, hard to remember the story line when it’s spread out like that.

I too read back over the story arcs, but still don’t remember them that well. So, I will still attribute it to an excellent memory on your behalf

Ah, yes. A classic, to me at least. I sometimes recall it, when I see the unrealistically large piles of stuff characters can easily carry in almost all games.

I never got the chance to play, the few “nerds” I knew weren’t into it and I had just acquired a brand new Atari 2600 and started to collect cartridges. By time the crash hit I had nearly 100. Had top of the line controllers too. Even got the “Supercartridge” which was a small computer that “talked” to the console after you plugged it into a cassette player and waited the 20 minutes it took to load a game…

ARTHUR: What happens now?
BEDEVERE: Well, now, uh, Launcelot, Galahad, and I, wait until nightfall, and then leap out of the rabbit, taking the French by surprise — not only by surprise, but totally unarmed!
ARTHUR: Who leaps out?
BEDEVERE: Uh, Launcelot, Galahad, and I. Uh, leap out of the rabbit, uh and uh….
ARTHUR: Oh….
BEDEVERE: Oh…. Um, l-look, if we built this large wooden badger…

I’m thinking that a Mule would be more appropriate for this type of impending scenario.

Realistically, since magic is a known thing to exist in the setting, just saying “Our friend died and we are looking to pay someone to bring him back to life” would probably be enough to convince the guards Might be some paperwork to fill out, so that if he turns into a zombie they know who to blame, might insist on a proper coffin for transport If they are real stickers, they might say that the corpse has to be kept at a morgue, and they have to bring the priest to the morgue to resurrect him I’m with 2… Read more »

And so started their (mis)adventure with Stormcliff’s bureaucracy.
Permit to bring in a corpse.
Appropriate fee for that permit. (that they might not have money for)
Fee for entering the city to even get that permit (twice, the person entering needs to leave and get him in afterwards).
Resurrection tax.
And then, when leaving the city, the guards stop Tobyn. “Sir, we have no note of you entering our city anywhere in documentation…”

“I told you we should have just smuggled him in…”

If they smuggled him in he still wouldn’t have had documentation. They need to disguise him as a live person on the way in. Which is probably really hard to do.

Well, they would obviously also need to smuggle him out.
Or/but, I suppose, in this scenario, smuggle the corpse in by pretending it’s a live person, as you suggested. 🙂

Also, hindsight – they wouldn’t know it would happen NOW, only learning about it when leaving the city.
(I would edit my previous comment, but website is giving me login issues since forever, I tried contacting Tim about it, but failed or maybe that’s something beyond his control)

When the DM would be the victim of these things, they might be less likely to happen.

Also, it’s the DM’s character being revived. I doubt the persuasion DC would be THAT high.

…erm hate to break it to you but… your ex may have moved on… On the plus side it does look like those three guys are too scared/grossed out to try anyting.

She is right though, if there was a priest in the town that could preform resurrections no one would really care if someone was carrying a body into town. It’s set in medieval time
so the only one that might stop them would be the constable(?) to collect city “fee’s”. And of course the Priest would expect a “donation” to his church. Now trying to sneak a body out of town might gather more interest.

… follow-up question: how strong does someone need to be to pull this off, and is a strength of 17 enough?

I wonder what’s going to be more funny, if his inevitable attempt is going to roll a critical success or a critical failure?
