Subject: nah

I'm not complaining, Roger. You couldn't have laid a better trap for Arien.

I was just saying I'd enjoy it, even if somebody (including Arien) dies. TPK right here, maybe not quite so fun.

But that's okay. Roll up new characters, and next time, we immolate the corpses of our former characters who are the new bait. It's all good.


Hmmm... next post. "Arien drools while reconsidering his life decisions..."

Subject: wow

I had a feeling that we were pretty darned tough. I mean, c'mon... Arien has the best AC you can have in 2e, at least in some situations... and in others, he's only one point off. Plenty of hitpoints, can deal stupid amounts of damage, stupid high chances to hit. He's truly a combat monster.

He lasted one round. Holy crap.

The rest of the team looks great on paper. Yet, we're all mostly down, or badly hurt... after one round. With the front door guard monster. At a trap we knew was a trap.

Sanity returns! If not for the Kansas City aberration, I'd have gotten 13 this week. I don't expect to get them all, but 12-3 is more like it.

Subject: honestly...

I'm okay with Roger making it up, too. Even if we don't all make it through the first scene. I love the stories.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: catch!

Arien and Lun moved to tale part in an aerial rescue of the hunters, but the obvious trap revealed itself as the tentacles sprang to life and turned the poor victims into missiles.

The knight did not hesitate, did not think. With one motion, he sheathed his blade and dropped, hoping to intercede himself between a hunter and the ground. If successful, Arien intends to move the victim to the safety of the ground, then begin his own missile attacks against the tentacles - provided they do not push to melee. If they do, he will defend with sword and shield.

If not, Arien will attack at range... but the priority is trying to save a hunter.

I was an enchanted arrow that exploded inside Arien's armor.

Subject: meh

I expect Arien will deal with far worse indignities than a gust of wind.

Posted on 2014-11-20 at 09:01:33.

Subject: hmmm

Hey, I was checking the character thread, and realized that my armor entry is incomplete. I'm quite certain that Roger approved that Arien's plate has a +5 vs anal invasion attacks.

Posted on 2014-11-19 at 11:21:16.

Subject: okay

I figured as much, Roger... but it was worth asking.

I agree, Eol. A sensible person would leave the huntermissiles to their own fate and deal with the monsters first.

Arien has never been horribly sensible. Did you miss the silver screen stuff? Somebody needs help, and he has the power to offer it. He'll do so at the peril to his own life, and be glad for the chance. It's a nigh certainty that one day, it will get him killed.

Someday, in some afterlife, a former paladin is going to get an education. They might have been better at following the rules, but Arien gets it.

Posted on 2014-11-19 at 10:03:43.

Subject: ick

Thanks a lot, Eol.

Oh DM, live forever! Thou didst not answer my query regarding the portable hole - can Arien possibly deploy it in time to use it as a makeshift net? Or will he need to just make an effort to catch an elf?

Posted on 2014-11-19 at 09:30:24.

Subject: cool

This may be pushing it too far, but two more questions, please.

One - I'm assuming that the hunters have been hurled in a path that puts their trajectories at least somewhat close together. Is that correct?

Two - if #1 is correct, would it be possible for Arien to drop and deploy his portable hole in time to use as a makeshift net to possibly save more than one of them? If not, could he deploy the thing at all so as to give himself a better chance of catching at least one?

Yes, they will suffocate inside of it, but they have a full turn to do so. If it's possible to open the thing quickly enough, that's a way better chance to save at least one, if not more.

Hey, you said this game was high on fantasy and magic, low on realism. This is the stuff of bard songs.

Posted on 2014-11-18 at 15:21:09.

Subject: thank goodness

I'm glad to have a better idea as to what out trap actually is. The suspense was awful!

Oh DM, live forever. I'm assuming that it is impossible to catch any of the falling victims?

Can ground combatants reach the tentacles?

That's "long term"?

We're gonna die sooner than I thought.

Topic: Tann's 2014 NFL U Pick'em Game
Subject: well, hell

I don't know anything about the NFL. This is obscene.

Let's be honest, I don't pretend to really know (or even have a good feeling) about who will win every game. But even on games that I have a good feeling about, games that - in years past - I would have gotten way more right than wrong... this year, I'm consistently missing them.

It's crazy.

Then again, I honestly thought that Auburn was an excellent team, and just a couple of brain freezes away from being a contender for the college national championship. After Saturday against Georgia, it's obvious that, in fact, Auburn is really just not that good.

So what do I know?

Subject: well

My understanding was that Arien and Lun would fly/levitate, cut down a victim, carry to a third person, have Jarenion cast. Drop the victims (Arien cuts down #3). We repeat that process, uses two castings.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: bait...

The party discussed the plan. Arien and Lun would move up and help to cut down the hunters, Jarenion would cast his spells to ease their descent. The thought of leeches was revolting, but of greater worry was the overall situation.

To the knight, this was obviously a trap. And yet, there was no way they could bypass it in good conscience; just hours ago, Arien had bid his son to help those who could not help themselves; he could not have dreamed up a situation that met that criteria any more obviously.

And so, they would spring the trap, and deal with the consequences a they came. Still, they need not do so unaware.

"Beware, my friends," the knight spoke in a clipped tone. "I would bet my spurs that this is a trap... not that it changes anything."

With a word, Liun'naur ignited into blue flame, and the knight began to levitate up.

Subject: whaa?

Are you nuts? If these guys have been dropped by leeches outside the dungeon, they are going to be less than useless to us inside. At best, they soak a few HD of damage.

Then, they die.

Then, we have their blood on our hands.

If they insist on going along (it's their idea), Arien would not deny them... but there's a reason Yolanda summoned what amounts to a group of heroes, rather than send more nameless hunters to save her son.
