"On the way into town, we killed some ghouls that were picking our people off. I'm not sure if they're from the same pack or not, but I'd hardly consider that murder. My guess is he's referencing my initial incursion into their territory and leading our assault on their tombs. This all started when I followed some suspicious-looking people to see where they were going. I'm capable of being quite discreet when scouting."

"So there are packs in the woods as well.  That is not welcome news.  Are you familiar with the Mental Ward technique?"

"I know Personal Ward, but not Mental Ward."

OOC: I have to wait to gain a level to learn it, by spending skill points, right?

Then we need to try to get you up to speed in the next two dats."

"That would be prudent. I'm frankly surprised this went as well as it did, which makes me think they're trying to lull us into a trap."

OOC: 3,500 XP would get me to level 6.

"The Haxan excel at mental inluence.  Your being a woman might stop them from trying to control your mind for a while, but the temptation would be there all the same.  Your studies will keep you hidden from the ghouls until they hopefully leave town as well."

It will take 2 weeks to learn the spell, so you won't have a chance before the meeting.  Is there anything else you wish to do?

"I should restock on supplies. I'm still well-rested from before, at least. Are there any materials I should look to acquire that can help with protection?"

Elizabeth wants to replenish her shot and powder.

OOC: Yeah, no kidding. I have a wealth bonus of 9.

Also, I apparently have 25 action points that I never use! Are those used to add +1d6 to a d20 roll?

I have no idea. It's been years since I leveled. I know it's changed over the years.

we'll go ahead and level you now.  Presumably you've been getting paid during some of this, so gimme three profession checks.

OOC: She has Craft and not Profession. Do you just want three straight Wisdom checks?

Can Elizabeth learn Regeneration? It adds five weeks to the downtime, but I'm not super worried about it.

Are the max ranks we can have in a spell the same as skill ranks? There are some I'd like to get up to 10 ranks, but I'm assuming I have to be level 7 for that.

yes to all 3 questions.  Are you doing anything else before the meeting in 2 days?

I think she needs to rest for the two days to pay off the ability damage from casting Personal Ward earlier.

Leveling should be complete.

Profession = 1d20+1:
Rolled 1d20+2 : 3 + 2, total 5

Rolled 1d20+2 : 19 + 2, total 21

Rolled 1d20+2 : 18 + 2, total 20

By +12 (from 9, to a total of 21) or to +12?

For the most part, I think Elizabeth will want to make sure her shot and bullets are replenished, and probably pick up some odds and ends, like repaired clothing and food.

I'm not sure if there's any supplies available for her to work on stocking up a chemistry lab.

It goes to 21.  It's a major city, so if you're going to find supplies it will be here.

She doesn't have any specific things to purchase before the next meeting. After replenishing her powder/bullet stock, she'll look to repair any damaged clothing, buy any dried/preserved food staples, and see if she can further build up a chemistry lab. She knows the lab will likely take quite some time.

There are some supplies for a lab, but with no imports there are gas.  You are to be given an escort on meeting day, as you have not yet learned the spell.  A meeting in a public square near the place you first met has been arranged.  There are several women there, and one marches out to the center to meet you.
