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.

Subject: well

We still have to cut them down. If Lun is strong enough, she could cut a hunter down at the same time Arien does. they meet at hunter #3, mage casts feather fall, three hunters are affected and can drop without harm.

We could do it with two castings of the spell instead of three, and get it done faster. I say fly away!

I'll post, but it will be this weekend.

Subject: crap

Sure enough, it's too far apart. This is going to be complicated, no matter what we do.

Arien can levitate them down one at a time, as well. For that matter, we could cut it to three castings - knight cuts one down, carries him to victim #2. Cast spell to affect both, cut #2 down, let both drop. Rinse and repeat.

Assuming that cutting them down is that simple, and Arien doesn't get overrun with magical brain leeches.

Subject: nah

Feather fall is cheaper, mana wise, and is tailored specifically for this.

Posted on 2014-11-14 at 10:02:16.

Subject: yeah

I love to be the evil schemer, but it's still fun to deal with it.

Worse case, we die. *shrug*

Posted on 2014-11-14 at 09:49:26.

Subject: lol

If it was easy, we'd be bored.

Feather fall ought to be ideal. Your mage has way more than enough juju to make this work for six hunters.

Then, of course, comes removing the leaches...

Subject: whoops

Posted to the wrong thread. Moved my post, but it mistakenly updated the last five threads.

Subject: crap

Not enough to be monsters. Oh, no. Roger has to go and set an obvious trap that we can't ignore.

Okay. Arien can levitate up to cut them down, though cutting through ropes of leeches sounds like a crap idea. It would be six trips, though; he's strong enough to hold a hunter in each hand, but there's no way he's gonna sheath his sword right now.

Eol, do you have a way to magically lower them to safety if Arien cuts them down in one pass?

I don't know how we'll begin to remove magical leeches. I expect this will be tricky, and we're gonna get hurt. Either the leeches themselves are gonna give us a bad time, or the hunters are bait.

Or both.

Topic: MiB 3
Subject: MiB 3

From what I knew, this movie has been viewed as something of a turkey. Understand, I loved the original MiB, and the sequel was still entertaining. I figured that I'd enjoy #3 well enough, but the negative buzz it earned (oh no! time travel!) kept me away.

Well, my wife had DVRed this one on some free Starz weekend (or the like), and last night, we watched it.

It was campy. It was sometimes silly. It was often over the top.

In other words, it was perfectly true to the franchise.

It's no Schindler's List, but for a fun popcorn action flick, you can do WAY worse.

Somehow, I missed that, too. I'm gonna blame it on an edit.

Nice post, Tann!

Subject: wait just a cotton picking minute

Somebody has true seeing? That somebody needs to be examining everything closely - especially the scarecrow, the bodies, the columns, the skulls.

Posted on 2014-11-12 at 15:14:35.

Subject: heh

So... no levitation?

I'm sure these guys are going to swoop down on us.

Posted on 2014-11-12 at 14:59:52.

Subject: crud

I could so toss the dwarf.

The fact that the arms are crossed *is* rather odd. Again, I'm probably just being paranoid, but it's bugging me.

Did we get anything from detect magic on the bodies?

Arien can levitate at will. I wonder if it's worth investigating, or if this is just the DM screwing with our heads.

Posted on 2014-11-12 at 14:38:24.

Didn't you warn us that we were going to have trouble?

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: very well

A scarecrow? Arien wondered. But why? Surely the hanging bodies were warning enough?

The knight tried to not think too hard about what sort of evil would stitch together the skin of a man to make, in effect, a "No Trespassing" sign.

Before he could even get the words out to ask about possible enchantments, the elven mage had already reported his findings. All rather innocuous and expected... which, for some reason, made Arien all the more uneasy. "Thank you, my friend," he replied to the caster.

"Maximus," the knight spoke softly. "Check the... scarecrow and the surrounding area for traps, if you will. I would not be surprised to find that our enemies have drawn our attention to this macabre display, only to shoot us with poison darts or somesuch while we are distracted. Let us beware the skulls, the pillars, the hunters themselves."

He paused a moment. "I rather doubt that our enemies intend to allow us to simply stroll, unmolested, into the front door."

Is it just me, or does the skincrow torchbearer seem worse than an enemy?

I may be paranoid, but this just feels so wrong.
