    Rooms are taken for the night. I have the large corner table for us but could also get the large round table in the front.

    Here is an interesting idea: Making an Aid Other Action using Mage Hand and a 5 pound object. A 15ft drop might not do damage, but it should distract the target enough to count.
    Or, since an enemy generally isn't magical and they aren't generally cupping their family jewels at all times, a yank should be enough to distract if not Sicken.

      Also, the original intention was just to outline some creative uses for Mage Hand and its equivalent word.

      Sure.. much like the graduated summoning spells.

    From Jade Regent: Night of Frozen Shadows - When the Amatatsu family came over the Crown of the World, fleeing Minkai and the assassination attempts of the oni of the Five Storms, they knew that Kalsgard, de facto trading capital of the Lands of the Linnorm Kings and the Avistani end of the Path of Aganhei, would be the obvious place to look for them. Exhausted, depleted in numbers by their trek, and bereft of funds, they had to find some means to finance their escape farther south before being discovered by their pursuers. The oldest survivor of the journey, a young man named Tsutoku, took over responsibility for the family and their heritage. Seeing no other options, Tsutoku sold the family's heirloom sword, the sentient katana Suishen, to a local collector in order to raise the funds to continue the journey south.

      When the warding box was opened after being discovered in the Brinewall Vault and the Amatatsu Seal revealed, the Five Storms' seers in Minkai once more detected the seal, and informed Kimandatsu that the Amatatsus had reappeared. The ogre mage wasted no time, quickly mobilizing the Frozen Shadows in preparation for the arrival of the Amatatsu heirs in Kalsgard, for they would surely have to pass throught he city on their way to Minkai across the Crown of the World.

      Through their vast web of informants, the Frozen Shadows learned that a merchant and collector named Fynn Snaevald had purchased an ancient sword from Tian expatriates over 50 years ago. Believing that the sword might be Suishen, the heirloom blade of the Amatatsu family, Kimandatsu instructed one of her agents, a local chieftain named Asvig Longthews, to break into Snaevald's house and steal the sword. Rather than risk Suishen falling into the hands of the Amatatsus again, Kimandatsu disposed of the blade in an oubliette deep beneath her fortress of Ravenscraeg, where she hoped no one would ever find it.

    Hundreds of years ago in the distant land of Minkai, a powerful cabal of evil spirits known as oni emerged from the mysterious Forest of Spirits. Intent on seizing control of a land they felt they deserved to rule, these oni, known as the Five Storms, began a covert war against the five royal families of Minkai, for by obscure but nonetheless binding divine laws, only once all five families had been wiped out or controlled could the Five Storms take control. By 4652 AR, the Five Storms had come close to their goal. Yet when the oni turned their attention to this last family of nobles, the Amatatsu, they discovered that the family had fled Minkai over the Crown of the World, the inhospitable northern continent at Golarion's north pole.

      Amatatsu Seal: This stone statuette of a dragon is one of five royal seals of Minkai, and represents the Amatatsu family's divine right to rule the empire of Minkai. Should no Amatatsu's of pure blood be able to take up that charge, however, the Amatatsu Seal can invest the right to rule as an Amatatsu in any number of living humanoid hosts. These Amatatsu scions often experience a series of visions of the past, present, and possible future. (Essentially the Adventure Background above and Ameiko or themselves seated on the throne).

      I will add information from the second book, the Frozen Shadows, tomorrow night.

    So, can we get a background on the Amatatsu seal and the party's overall goals? With enough new characters, I think it'd be a good idea.

      On a side note, Wulfgar does feel responsible for the losses in the party on his watch. He did not fall asleep, and was doing what he was tasked to do, which was to watch for threats. Given what he had seen of Meryl’s skills in the past, if she or another ninja indeed entered the camp in the night, during a snow storm, he is convinced there is no way without magic enhancement he could have seen them. Wulfgar vows to not rest until the stolen items are returned and offers the use of his bow and the Kelda’s bulls strength spell to the young elf ranger so he may continue to fight. (Plus he still has his heavy crossbow in his bag of holding.)
