"Torag's beard," Stedey says, readjusting his grip on the coffin. "What in the world was that all about? The professor seemed like a really nice man when I met him."

Andari answers Stedey's question; "There are many superstitious people in this land.  Many misfortunes and calamities have befallen them, and they seek something or someone to blame.  This I know personally.  It is best that we bury the Professor and then be on our way."

Kendra thanks you profusely for talking the thugs out of the fight. One of the attendees steps forward. He introduces himself as Councilman Hearthmount, and apologizes, expressing shock and outrage that those farm hands "of such low character" would act so brazenly.

 

You finish carrying the heavy coffin to the burial site Kendra purchased for her father, where you meet the Ravengro cleric, Father Grimburrow. He gives a short sermon as the grave diggers lower the coffin into the grave. He invites Kendra to speak. She fights back the tears long enough to thank everyone once again for coming. She recounts a few of her father's more courageous and selfless stories. She asks the PCs to say a few words about how her father was a part of their lives.

 

(OOC this is where you can give the background story of how you knew Prof Lorrimor. You can be matter of fact, or as showy as you like (diplomacy or Perform)).

"The Professor came to me after a time of personal tragedy.  He was initially interested in confirming the story that he had heard concerning me, but he took an interest in me, and helped deal with some of personal demons.  If not for him, I would not be the man I am today.  May Desna light and ease his way on this, his final journey."

 

Diplomacy: 19+2=21

 

(OOC: what faith is Father Grimburrow?)

"In a time of confusion and darkness, The professor picked me out of my pit of bespare and made me see the light, he was a true friend in my darkest hour and has ment the world, to me. May he find peace in the after life." Zak finishes in tears.

Nisha smiled slightly "I met him when he needed more otherworldly assistance and knowledge on my particular craft. I appreciated his interest and his concern in me. I also did not mind helping him with the goodwill my profession brought. A truly kind man who was able to see past the surface and to who a person was at their core."

 

Eran waves his claws and seems to chitter something as well "He also made a good friend of Eran for treats given and once keeping him from becoming a meal, for which I am very grateful as well.

"Gee, I feel kind of bad," Stedey says. He shuffles his feet and scratches at the scraggly beard he's just started trying to grow. "I didn't know the professor as well as everybody else. I ran across him cornered by some goblins one day and helped him get loose from them. He was real nice, and he thanked me, and we talked awhile--and, I mean, he even remembered me! He was a nice man, and I see he had a lot of friends, and I'm glad to've known him just a little bit."

"I first met the good professor a good number of years ago. I was travelling with a small group that was on it's way to take part in a small investigation of a ruined settlement. We where passing through Tamran in Nirmathas.  At a time when the Professor was there as well gathering research materials. Had we known this at the time, there is a very good chance we would have sought him out during our short stay. However, fate, or perhaps higher powers, worked to bring us together. It was not long in the city before one of our group discovered that some of Razmir's false priests where there as well, and we quickly took to making certain we knew where they where, and in keeping away from them. For Kyonin and Razmiran's relation is the sort where if care was not taken, violence would be the result. It was while keeping tabs on a pair of them that I learned of the Professor, for they where taking an interest in him as well. Intent on using his reputation to advance the cause of their false god. They cornered him in a dark alley, and began with promises, but soon fell into threats. When one said that their god did not need him alive to make use of him, I knew it was time I took action of my own. So, I laughed, and called out that he was no god. One of them turned on me, and sought to cast a spell. But while clerics might wear armor and still draw upon the divine magics, wizards playing that roll do not, and it is difficult to cast a spell with a dagger sticking out of you. I was surprised at how well the Professor was able to tend to himself, and it was not long before we two fled that alley and sought refuge with my company.

 

Some few years ago, I ran into him again, and he was most happy to see me, and spoke again and again of how glad he was that I showed up then. Since that time, I had written him a few times to share interesting discoveries i was privy to, and he shared some of his knowledge with me. I was saddened to learn of his passing, but honored beyond words to be asked to be here"

Grimburrow is a Cleric of Pharasma.

 

Andari's speech was particularly well received. It moved some to tears. It made others smile and hug their loved ones. He earned a few pats on the back from complete strangers...

 

(+1 Trust Point!)

After about thirty minutes of hugs, tears, and good byes, you are all starting to feel a little awkward when Kendra comes up to you and addresses you.

 

"Please, let's return to my fa-...my house for a few drinks. There is the matter of the reading of the will, and he had indicated it would be important for you all to attend."

Zak nodds somberly and follows the rest of the party toward the rear. Listening and keeping watch for any sign of renewed aggression from the townfolk with his hand on his alchemy kit.

      This was an impulse buy for me 'cause I don't play Pathfinder, but the Reaper range has a lot of really cool mini's.
      From what I understand, the Scribbler is an incarnation or possessed by an ancient evil God, so I gave him some "psycho" eyes (ie Iris only touching the lower part of the eyeball).
      Tried to make a desert base, but put far too much grass on it.
      Thanks for looking.

      Here the second of my august bunch: Reaper's 60161 "Ilnerik Sinvanshin", a vampire from Pathfinder setting. 
      On my setting, though, he's Faude Carfilhiot, a perfect homunculus created by the archalchemist Pandelume. A wizard, alchemist, dangerous figure with a taste for cruelty. 
       
      Here, yet again, I used that frightening black & white palette, with - I think - moderate success: I could still have been a bit smoother on the black highlights. It's a very delicate figure, small details everywhere, lots of texture changes on the clothing. I tried (again) to convey an albino look. I cut off the metal strip to use that resin mosaic textured base, which I painted with the same black & white palette.

      A few weeks ago I began to perceive subtle changes heralding the return of my favorite time of year. Fortunately it also brought with a return of my motivation to paint. Over the course of time I've managed to amass many 20s of horror and undead minis so what better way to get into the season than start actually painting some of them. 

      I picked this up at Goodwill some months ago with the idea of having it be a home for the witches. The original painter did a pretty good job on it, but I'm going for something a bit more Charles Addams .

      So it got a coat of Pavement Grey craft paint.

      Here we have batch 1. The wraith, wolf, lich, vampire, and tomb are all from the Bones 3 Graveyard set and the two beastmen I picked up from the discount bin at Reaper HQ last year. The wraith was previously coated in black and at some point I added a brown wash for unremembered reasons.

      Here's everyone after Dirty Bone and Stormy Grey have been applied. The chimneys of the house had it drybrushed on as did the tomb. While base coating the others I noticed that for unknown reasons the Stormy Grey is acting odd, thinner than it ought to be out of the bottle. I'm not too concerned about it as I've had this bottle for a long time and I think it went thru one temperature change too many, as well as perhaps age catching up with it. The wraith didn't receive any because of this and because even someone like myself who abuses the grey spectrum with overuse on a regular basis gets burned out some. So I'm holding off on him for a little while.
      Now it might be asked what the beastmen are doing in a Halloween themed thread, but witches and goat headed creatures go together quite often in both art and legend. So they'll be acting as bodyguards for the witches of a more infernal type.

      Here is the latest of my Pathfinder figures that I painted: Barzillai Thrune (#60205). 
      I sculpted this figure last year and he was newly available at ReaperCon 2017.  If you go to ReaperCon this year, you can see this figure in person.
      As with Octavio Sabinus (link to my Show-Off thread), Barzillai also appears in the Pathfinder Adventure Path "Hell's Rebels" as a major NPC: link to cover image of #97. (Wayne Reynolds painted the cover art.  The armor makes me think of a shark.)
      Barzillai is the new lord-mayor in Kintargo, and his notions of law and order are going to provoke a lot of resentment, especially from the PCs!
      I wanted the base to evoke a city under siege, so I sculpted the stone rubble out of Aves Apoxie Sculpt, and stuck some toothpicks in as stakes.
       
       
       

       
       
      Enjoy!
