I was looking for how to "Turn Undead" using Freebooters, I would like Dreadhur to use that to assert his control over the ghouls.

Fiction first!

It'll be an Invoke move for you, since your god has power over the undead. But I'd like to see what exactly you're doing before determining the hubris involved. Are you talking to them, or...

Can you identify the below?

For Vecna, I'm going to suggest the following:
  • Tenet: Never reveal all you know
  • Domains: choose two of Undead, Secrets, Necromancy, Intrigue, Corruption, Dominance
There's probably a fine balance in there between keeping knowledge from other PCs/players that's harmful to the game versus provoking interesting situations/quandaries because Dreadhur wasn't being entirely transparent.
Also:
You need to identify your three Tricks of the Trade (from Thief playbook)

OK, he's going to raise the banner of Rahesh and try to call the ghouls back to the standard, trusting to his authority as a priest of Vecna and Animator-General to get them to fall in and follow his commands like a bunch of drunk sailors on shore leave. He can probably hack any disobedient ones to pieces. If this goes wrong, he's on ant-back and will run like hell.

Tricks of the Trade: Stealth, Poison, Negotiation. He's got the zombies to scout ahead for traps.

Domains I thought I specified before, Undead and Domination.

Can I press for an IC post?

Also need your domains of worship of Vecna, as listed in that post. Two of the six listed.

DannyK has posted that he's away for the next few days for an emergency. Does anyone else want to do anything in the current scene? If not, let's skip ahead to you all getting back to the ships and heading down the river, and we can retcon some of the current scene when DannyK returns.

I'm fine with skipping ahead.

As mentioned in the Absences thread, I'll be at Gencon for the next five days and will not be checking the PbP forum (or much of RPGnet at all) during that time. Feel free to background Myrineth if necessary until I'm back.
