(Keep it civil guys!)

Character:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

"Rox. I do think you and Alice deserve some time together, but now is not the time. I'm prepareing for a visit from Foghorn. What if something happened to you or her while you were down there? We would all be in trouble. How about you go with her after Foghorn leaves?"

Rox ponders your words for a minute. "Mr. Foghorn would make Rox leave with him. That would not work."

You sigh. "Fine. Then at least take Jimma with you. She is tough enough to protect you, and has no free will. She will back off and give you privacy if Alice demands it."

You call for Jimma, explain to the puppet her job, and send the escorted couple away.

Then you decide to go out and hunt for a pet for your child. You go about this by heading outside and talking to the trees, asking about the locations of owl's nests. After several hours of such searching you find a nest with two fledgling owls inside. The parents seem to be away at the moment. 1d20 = 14 + 1(Skill) = 15

You open a telepathic link with the birds.

-Hey. You owls? I'm a night creature and I'm looking for a friend for my child.-

-Bullshit. You don't look like some vampire or werewolf. You are clearly a demon.-

-I'm a night troll.-

-Those don't exist.-

-They didn't for a long time. But I assure you, we are real, and we are back.-

-Bullshit, prove it.-

You growl and storm off. You would consider just grabbing one, but you are fairly sure that the two owls are just about old enough to fly. You either have to turn a woman in front of them, or find another owl. At least you know where they live if you want to do something vengeful or clever. 1d20 = 8

Back at the tower you and Gwendolyn spend some time cleaning. Eventually Cherlyn returns. Her bag is squirming again, and she seems to have picked up some fancy new belongings as well. "Got two kids in the bag this time. Elves. I was able to hold of on having a pre-dinner snack." 1d20 = 16 + 4(Minion is Very Well Suited for the Task) = 20

The thief walks downstairs to deposit her catch in the Dungeon, and you take a quick glance at her to see what she has picked up. From the looks of it she has used her platinum bar and whatever else she stole to buy jewlery. You also notice a wand hanging from her belt; likely pre-loaded with some spell or another. She has also traded in her metal dagger for one of Obsidian. The new knife is covered in runes and likely enchanted.

Surely her new gear will make Cherlyn a bigger threat in combat; whether or not that is a good thing remains to be seen.

Welp, those owls will have to end up a snack at some point.
Tsk tsk. Cherlyn bought jewlery? Well i suppose it might make a less obvious form of currency.
Hrmm, no message from leaf? Ask Cherlyn if she went to the ranch.

Tell Foghorn he can come whenever he likes, and that he may feel free to bring along his family.
Spend some time with our son. Tell him stories of our adventures.

It's to early to call Foghorn, we don't know when will Rox return

I am concerned with the power of Cherlyn, problems expected

Yeah, i think we should try to make sure she didn't just spend both of the platinum bars we sent her out with, but in a roundabout way. Ask her about the ranch, she hasn't been there yet, ask her what it looks like.

Am I the only one not concerned by Cherlyn? Yes, she's bratty and doesn't like obeying orders, but she does like us. She's even said that she's glad we converted her.

You have a point, and that gets me thinking. While i think we should keep a close eye on her it could prove prudent to give her more rather than less wriggle-room. This might not necessarily make too much sense at first but keeping her leash loose might help to keep her complacent, and would make it more significant if we ever decided to tighten it.
I think we should go ahead and give foghorn a call, he said he would need at least half a day of foreknowledge correct? Unless alice and rox are going on a camping trip underground it should not be a problem.

Some better ideas than - give no orders, do absolutely nothing and talk to the son?
I have no new ideas, looks like I am not the only one without ideas

If he come and no Rox and Alice present that will be awkward. And that's quite possible

They both know that Foghorn is coming, they'd have to be idiots to just wander off and forget to come back. They're not idiots. If they don't come back it's because something has gone wrong, and we would know much earlier than we otherwise would, because we know that they know there is a time limit.

It isn't like they're the ones who invited him over.  If they aren't there we can tell him they had to go hunting for victims or something.  He isn't necessarily going to jump to conclusions that quickly.  Especially if it would involve his daughter's sexuality.  UR is having trouble believing it, I imagine Foggy Bottom is experiencing difficulty on that front as well.

Spend some time with baby night troll. Make sure that he is does not have health problems, and bond with him. I think we should hold off on the calling the party because we should gather some plants (herbs, vegetables, fruits, nuts) and drinks (water, tea, alcohol, etc.) for the feast as well. Ask Cherlyn what the new items do. Also look into getting some clothing for Alice since she does not have any pants in her inventory.

Spoiler: Rant about Alice (click to show/hide)
[/spoiler]
I don't agree with all of your arguments (for instance, flying is kinda the quintessential superpower), but I agree with your conclusion. If Alice wasn't good enough for the left stone, who was?

Quote

Did Rox even know about it?
It's entirely possible that I forgot about that if she did.
She was the one who told us about it
Oh. Thanks.

I thought he already knew...
He threw Alice in torturing device for being a lesbian... How do you think, what would he do with someone who "seduced" his little daughter?
He didn't even knows that we know that Alice is a lesbian and I think it would we better if that will stay the same
I thought it was the relationship with Rox that got her tossed into the torture room.

Aren't most of our arguments for converting Rox so the two of them can stay together? Wouldn't this affect their feelings towards us and each other?
That will affect. In some unpredictable way.
Bright side, if we explain our logic to Alice, she won't feel betrayed.
Theoretically.

Alice is a lesbian, it was never an issue for her. I thought Rox was, too?
Pure homosexuality is very rare for women.

Eternity is a long enough time to switch

Alice is 16 year old... that's only the beginning of sexuality.

It may be only result of teenager rebelliousness against social norms

Consorts are changed by conversion, some instincts are added. I am sure that if turn on any gift near Alice she will do whatever is needed for mating( that's a form of a rape, but still)

I see no reasons to assume that Rox is a lesbian and not a bi
Alice has mentioned being disgusted by...some aspect or other of heterosexual relationships, I don't remember the exact quote. Anyways, you could argue the same argument for all of our consorts who aren't Jimma. The only real difference is that we knew about and cared about Alice before conversion.

I am concerned with the power of Cherlyn, problems expected
Treat her well, make her realize turning her was a blessing, and don't impregnate her until she does.

Prepare for the feast, spend time with the family, consider trying to teach Cherlyn some magic, wait for Alice, Jimma, and Rox to return.

Well, why don't we ask Rox before forming plans around what you assume?
