  • Everyone: Now that VM is in the Shadowfell and we're nearing the end of the campaign, it's likely that we have no more opportunities to visit any NPCs one last time.

  • For Ashley: In the few times I've seen you play DnD, you have been a claric, and it seems the kind of cleric that is in a very supportve role. Is this your most comforable type of role?
