Topic: The Corruption Hidden Beneath the Surface...
Subject: swallowed by the dark


As they enter the more narrow hallway, the party adjusts the marching order a bit, moving into a staggered single file line. 

The hall (tunnel?) takes a noticeable slope down. The air is cool and dry, but the scent of death lingers heavy here.  Bits of cloth, bone, gristle, flesh, skin all litter the hallway from time to time.  You do not pass any more of the sconces, but the greenish glow somehow remains at a fixed distance - enough to illuminate the hallway somewhat, not enough to drive the shadows away. 

Every footstep echoes on the stone floor, though no one or nothing appears to challenge your egress.  Knowing that this place is surely the source of the undead can only build dread as you advance.  Surely, at some point, they will block your progress?

Finally, you hear it.  An insane giggle echoing up the hallway from below.  You see a ghoul, seemingly unafraid, ambling towards you, all the while wearing a twisted grin on its rotting features.  As it closes the gap, you another more giggling - from behind.  You are pinned in. 

The party follows Aranwen's instructions; Kithran falls back to allow the Bladesinger to take her place, supported by Garn.  In the back, Ch'dau prepares to face the flanker, with Gib stepping up to support him in turn. 

It is a good plan.  The strong warriors are on the outside, facing outward and the danger.  Kith and the vulnerable spellcasters are on the inside, able to support as needed.  Tactically, it is as good of a strategy as the party could have concocted against the undead. 

Unfortunately, the party does not face the undead only. 

Moments before the two ghouls, moving in concert from each side, reach melee distance, a voice chants out a few short syllables... and unyelding, unnatural darkness falls upon the group.  Those with infravision are every bit as blind as are those without.  This is utter, complete, total darkness of the variety where one literally cannot see their hand inches in front of their own face.  Aranwen can still feel the heat of the crackling torch, but the flame casts no light whatsoever in the face of this sorcery. 

An intsant later, the ghouls are upon you, crashing into the outermost warriors, giggling with glee as they lay about in the darkness. 

And then... there is a grating sound, and suddely, a third giggling voice joins the sounds of battle - BUT IT IS IN THE MIDST OF THE GROUP.  Davena screams in terror and agony, but the scream cuts off abruptly as you fight for your very lives.

Just a heads up - I'm probably going to go ahead and post soon, myself.  A real update, not one of these little "one step here, one step there" jobs.

I call that "good roleplay".  Emotions are going to be there; she relies on her training and skill to deal with the situation, despite those feelings.

As they say, courage is not the lack of fear.  Courage is doing what you have to do DESPITE that existence of that fear.

I mean... there was a MASSIVE horde outside.  It's been mostly killed/dispatched (you know, save that dozen zombies or so that you sent fleeing into the woods).  And the priest leading them is dead. 

Maybe this place is just empty.  The threat is over.  Cake for everyone!

1) Kith is the new damage sponge.  Cool.  I like it, makes my job easier.

2) So we are doing the side passage as opposed to the temple area.  Cool.

3) Did... did one of my players just complain that I'm not throwing enough enemies at them? 

I'll have to address that.  I'd HATE for my players to be disappointed in my efforts as a GM!

Just an FYI - I have blocked a TON of spam/hacker traffic from the server.  I found where they had put a relay to embed porn vidoes and other nonsense, and killed all of that. 

It seems that the site is much more responsive, but I'm sure there is more to do. 

It's a start, though.

Glad you enjoyed it. 

Now that you mention it, two abreast works but is a tight squeeze.  If you go single file, do give me the marching order, please.

Topic: The Corruption Hidden Beneath the Surface...
Subject: sticky fingers...


Kithran knelt by the door, retrieved the tools of her trade, and went to work on the lock.  Press here, rotate there, hold like such...

Snick!  The faint little mechanical noise set the rogue's stomach to plummeting.  Surely she hadn't, it didn't...

But the sting in her fingertip was unmistakable - as was the tiny droplet of blood pooling on it.  Even as the edges of her vision began to darken, Kith railed internally.  Why would someone place a poison needle trap on such a simple door?  Why had she been so careless?  Why....

The rogue shook her head, clearing the nightmare that had popped up like a vision.  Of course there was no needle.  The lock gave way with a satifying click, and the door creaked open easily.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

The hallway beyond the wooden door stretched out into darkness.  Green light lay somewhere ahead, but the source was not close.  The stone hallway itself stank of death and decomposition; here and there, small piles of fleshy substances better not pondered too carefully lay in the shadows.  It would be accurate to state that the hall was, in fact, deathly silent.

If you checked the dropdown, I had originally set it for Stumps, Picks, and Loavens. 

But I've since decided that we'd be looking at triplication of effort here... and it's probably more up to the playr generating. 

Maybe add some text to the page descibing how names tend to vary among the subraces... but when all is said and done, they can and do interbreed, so if the lines are blurred, it's not "wrong".

That makes sense to me re: subtypes.

Roger - Baggins, Tooks, etc fall under "realistic", I think.

And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of youuuuuuuuu.....

Yeah, just trying to fix it up, so to speak.

As I look at it, I wonder if I shouldn't add subtypes for Cid fantasy last names, like we have for Khords.

Consider that for Khords, you have:

substance - body part (or item).... Onyxheart, Quartzfoot
monster - verb... Giantkiller, Dragonbane
item - creating occupation... Bronzecaster, Metalforger
substance - digging/destruction word... Stonedig, Shalecrusher

Subtypes only generate names within the subtype.  That way, you don't get silly names like "Bronzebane" or "Giantforger" or "Goblinheart".  Granted, sometimes you might come up with a cool name that breaks the conventions, but you'll get a lot of junk that way, too.

Just looking at the cid seed names, I wonder if we have a couple of categories there.  Maybe not.

The debug is indeed related to that.  I had removed the debug code, but got to thinking that rather than change the input/seed part, I needed to fix the geeneration code to actually work 100% correct.  The debug stuff is there to help me trace it.  Sorry, should have that resolved soon!

Haha... this is apparently just you and me.

I would only use a trap like that where it made sense - i.e. a powerful wizard's inner chambers or something, or in a beer & pretzels dungeon crawl.

Kith has lockpicks, yes.  From the look of the door, this will be a simple feat to open.
