In the south in the Kululu Forest, Posey searches for a lost instrument of war. In Baltimare, Kira establishes herself, while Silver enjoys a brief respite. In Hellquill, Amber prepares to play her music to the dictator of Hellquill. Elsewhere, trouble brews.

She puts on a bit of a sympathetic expression
"I can tell that you're confused. It's understandable, given your predicament. I'll make it clear for you: you are dead. You died some time ago, likely in this battle here. You're anchored to this plane, for one reason or another. Perhaps you might be able to return to where you lived, but there's little left for you in the world of the living."

Btw, is unicorn telekinesis a force effect? Can I use it to touch ghosts?

Posey takes the knife and slowly walks down the road, talking with the ghost as she goes.

>hurr durr why are you helping ghosts when ur evil?
Because this is an experience that would help Posey train herself as a spiritualist to expand her personal powers, and might mean a second or third level up at the end of this quest.

One pops up from that same crater Posey was examining earlier, peaking out and slowly walking forward, as if his hooves still mattered. One materializes from blue light from a laying position a couple feet off the ground in the clearing. One seems to hop out of the ruined truck. All four are ponies and male. It seems there is one of each type, including a bat winged pony, though she'd need a closer examination to say for sure. They slowly approach Posey

Damn, Silver knew he was an orphan, but he didn't know he had been one for that long. This colt desperately needs his own room, Silver couldn't imagine growing up and going through his body's changes without a bit of privacy.

"Well that is next thing on my agenda. I am going to look for mission to get enough Bits to expand our house, maybe add bedrooms to underneath area, enough for you, Mint, and Clip.

She didn't much care for the taste of the bread anyhow, finding it to be a bit bland for her, like the rice. At least now Kira can properly eat her bread, and with it finished she's done with her meal.

She's coaxing them to follow her, so that she can get more information out of them. Also, because she has no way of knowing how powerful these ghosts are, so she has to be careful before fighting them. She's banking on the idea that ghosts tend to be lonely types who are eager to either find somepony who will help them resolve their unfinished business, or relentlessly hound them with their with their stories.

I would like to make some Sense Motive checks (Assess Opponent), opposed by their Bluff checks, to assess the power (CR) of these ghosts, relatively to my HD (3).
I know for a fact that they must be a minimum CR of 2 (assuming lvl 1 nonelite warriors), and likely CR 3 or higher (assuming lvl 1 elite PC classed characters, or lvl 2 nonelite warriors), so I can discount any result that would say Pushover, so I'll know if these guys are Easy (CR 2), a Fair Fight (CR 3 each), a Tough challenge (CR 4-6), or a Dire Threat (CR 7+)
https://www.realmshelps.net/charbuild/skills/sense_motive.shtml
Posey does this because she is sizing them up to check if she can command them (CR being equal to class lvl for PC classed characters, or lvl -1 for NPC class; which gives her a sense of HD), thereby extrapolating their HD. Luckily, Ghosts are one of those class-leveled undead who's CR scale very quickly with HD.
I know this is metagaming, but this is the sort of thing that Posey would be an expert in and would be careful to observe before she makes her next move.

Check for the first one (the one who first spoke to Posey)
[1d20+3 = (1+3) = 4]
And the others (in order that they appeared in)
[1d20+3 = (11+3) = 14]
[1d20+3 = (1+3) = 4]
[1d20+3 = (17+3) = 20]
>A successful assessment reveals that your foe belongs in one of two adjacent categories (for example, "Easy" or "A fair fight"). If your Sense Motive check result exceeds the opposed Bluff check result by 10 or more, you can narrow the result down to a single category.
>By contrast, if the target's Bluff check result equals or slightly exceeds your Sense Motive check result, you gain no useful information. If the target's Bluff check result exceeds your Sense Motive check result by 5 or more, you may (at the DM's option) gain a false impression, believing your opponent to be much stronger or weaker than he really is (equal chance of either). If the target's Bluff check result exceeds your Sense Motive check result by 10 or more, your assessment is off by at least two categories (for example, a dire threat might be assessed as a fair fight).

The approach:

Bat pony, from the field
"Who are you?"
Unicorn, from the crater
"That flower is dangerous! Get away from it!"
Pegasus, from the truck
"Who sent you here?"
The earth pony Posey has been talking to, from the house
"Why do you leave?"

>>173946
One is reasonably dangerous and is easy for Posey to defeat if faced alone (but very likely to kill her if, for example, she simultaneously had to face 3 others) one is much the same, though a bit stronger... except not a combat type, one is an extreme push over, and one is extremely dangerous.

I am going to make a Religion check to see just how much Posey knows about ghosts, their threatening abilities, and how to handle them.
I've played ghosts before, so I know most of their abilities, but Posey is only lvl 3, so I can't assume that she knows.

"We still need some furniture, and maybe some food to put in the refrigerator for you for later, so getting those sounds like a good option to me."

At that second question, Kira blushes profusely and waves her arms in front of her.

"Oh no nonononononono no! No zebras, never! Never any sapient creature. Mostly it was sheep, goats, antelope, sometimes fish."

"Yes, opium. We made an oil we'd coat the tips of our arrows with. If we didn't bring the creature down with the first shot, they would eventually fall either unconscious or be rendered unable to flee. We're not really built for long-distance pursuits.

The paying cards are in the tall grass, being a bit worn down, at least on the outside, by weathering.

She does wave back to the little colt before they get too far apart. It gives Kira hope, that foals apparently have less fear than their parents and might learn one day that ponies and lamias can be friends.

When they arrive home, Kira takes a moment to look around at the inside of their rowhouse, commenting, "This is the first time I'm living somewhere different from my mother, you know?"

Silver gets the stool for White Orchid, then gives them a list of ingredients to gather from the kitchen: flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, milk, butter, and eggs. He also asks them to check for anything they wish added into the pancakes, like chocolate or berries.

Khoi looks around through out the kitchen, opening almost every cabinet looking for ingredients. She actually stares at the baking powder directly, and moves past it. With the eggs, the butter, and the milk, she shakes her head and says what sounds like a curse or something disapproving in a foreign language, but does at least get the butter.

"It's normal for us lamias to live with our families for a time, until we're ready to start a family of our own or we get married off to another lamia. It's not like how I've heard it is in other countries where a young adult moves out as soon as they come of age."

Kira doesn't really have much knowledge on what is considered normal furniture for a modern home, be she's already got some ideas of what they need: they need places to sit, both for Neela and whatever non-lamia guests they might have in the future, a place to eat like a kitchen table, a bed for Neela, and maybe a dresser for her clothes. Outside of that it might be nice to get some decorations to spruce things up, like rugs or curtains.

Silver chuckles, and grabs the things they forget to grab either accidentally or purposefully. He goes on to describe the purpose of each ingredient.

"Flour is base of pancake recipe. Baking powder is leavening for making pancakes light and fluffy. Sugar makes them sweet, and salt is used to enhance flavor. Milk, butter, and eggs will add rich moisture, and egg especially will help bind everything together."

He asks White Orchid to use his muscles to grab a large mixing bowl, and for Khoi to grab measuring cups and measuring spoons, both teaspoon and tablespoon. He also gets a small pan, puts it on a burner on the oventop, and adds a stick of butter to melt. Silver then tells them to take 5 cups of flour, 3 tablespoons of baking powder, 3 tablespoons of sugar, and a teaspoon of salt, and mix it all together in the mixing bowl.
