Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: And again we find ourselves in need of a plan

Tan - a uestion about the hole. This is above a door. What direction does the tunnel go? Normally I would expect an empty space on the other side of a door - another room or something. Does this hole seem to go into space that would normally be occupied by whatever is through the door? or does it go up or away from that space in some way? I was envisioning the hole being right at the top of the door frame - is this correct? In a spot like that it would be almost impossible for it to not open into the next room. I realize you can't, or won't, provide specifics, but am I envisioning it wrong? From what Ulthok can see, does it look like the tunnel goes into space in front of the door?

Well, unless Ulthok is volunteering to stick more than just his finger into this little hole, I don't think climbing through a little tunnel makes sense. I would suggest either:
1. We open the door of our choice.
2. We check out the pool more.

And here I thought barrow might be the rights word - we did come down through a tomb after all.

Just a quick check.

In the poem three times the first word is "borrow."
But once it is "barrow."

I just want to be sure - that is correct, isn't it?

Before I post - would Dane be able to grab his bow and shoot at the fleeing goblin before it reaches the cover of the woods?

Topic: Titansgrave Adventures
Subject: Wasn't that fun?

Rhyson looked around at the remains of the catboats. "Nice thinking with the spray. That worked well." He moved over to the cat closest to him - was there anything on it or in it that would be worth scavenging? It was what they did after all.

After straightening up he spoke again, "Ok, Tomiki, try 32 at climbing that pile? Just don't make any noise this time, ok?" He added this last part with a grin while pretending to toss something onto the pile.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Just standing here while my toes freeze. Or don't. Thanks, Sirene.

In this ice cave Lothor had felt like a spare part. He watched as the ice shattered and another message was revealed. As expected. He held his position by Sirene, keeping his eyes open waiting for something to finally come popping out at them. It would happen eventually.

“Can we check the hole at the same time Ulthok reads the message?” Both needed to be done, so lets get it done, he thought. But for him it was guard duty.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: The plan

Aletheia - that really stinks. Bummer. Lothor promises to never skip out on the rent.

Ok, group, this one seems obvious, so lets try to get posts up quickly so we don't need another two week move.

The only real question is if we all move up together or just a couple. I'd say we all move up as one group within Sirene's spell range. We can then post two logical moves:
1. Read the newly revealed poetry.
2. Take a look at the hole at the top of the door. This could probably be done by the giantess. Or she could lift Ulthok up if we need a closer look.

But Lothor's post would be a pretty simple, "stay with the group and keep my eye out" sort of thing.

Have Dane keep his bow, but otherwise do the same. If that means attack before they get a chance to surrender, so be it.

Since you want us to roll attack numbers and said that Dane could reach them in one round, I went ahead and posted attack numbers for Dane on the thread.

Subject: Well....

Lets see . . . something interesting lying in the middle of the road . . . right where the woods come right to the road . . . the group approaches . . . goblins jump out in an ambush . . .

Everyone that was shocked and surprised by that move please raise your hand.

Yep. Predictable.

Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver
Subject: That was predictable

As the goblins jumped out of the woods to attack Oskar, Dane let his arrow fly. Drat! It seemed he had let fly a bit fast, without taking enough time to aim. Thankfully another shaft buried itself into the goblin he had missed. Nice shot!

As the goblins moved in on Oskar he saw another fall to the Dwarf's hammer. Another grin at the skill of his new companions. But the two remaining goblins were now too close to the dwarf for Dane to risk a shot. It was just as well that the dwarf seemed to be negotiating. But negotiating with goblins, who did that? What was the point?

Still, while it wasn't the plan Dane would have followed it did allow him time to move up. He couldn't shoot from where he was, not without risking putting an arrow into his companion. So, he set his bow on the wagon and moved forward pulling his rapier. If the stupid goblins didn't take this chance to surrender, he'd attack them from the rear. Rogues had some nice talents for dealing with opponents who were already engaged. He moved forward at a run.

( OOC: If it isn't clear - Dane will run forward and swing. Not sure if he gets there and swings before the goblins have a chance to react to the surrender request. If they accept he won't attack, if they don't have time to respond or refuse, he attacks - using his rogue sneak attack ability since the goblins are already engaged.)

Die roll: 17 (+2 proficiency = 19)
Damage: 1d8+3 Rolled an 8+3 = 11. +1d6 for the sneak attack = 3.
Total damage: 14

That should hopefully skewer one of 'em. I'm just using the dice roller on this page to get numbers.

What are the odds of hitting Oskar? It might change my post.

Also, how many rounds will it take Dane to run up? Again, the answer might change my post.

Subject: Tunnels

In response to a question earlier Tann said that the tunnel got higher the further down we went. So the giantess should have no trouble getting into the front part of it.

Lothor will, of course, move back with everyone and stay within the spells area of effect. But I won't bother chaning my original post.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Here too . . .

Lothor, as usual, was both impressed and a bit nervous about the power of magic. The ice in front of the door essentially disintegrated. In fact, that was exactly what it did according to the title Ulthok had given the spell. It was a bit unnerving to think that something like that could be done to . . . well, anything, really. But especially the thought that it could be done to something living. No visible threat, just there and then . . . not there. Ouch. Or maybe not ouch, just nothingness. . .

He shook his head to clear it of such contemplations. He was glad that Ulthok and the other spellcasters were on his side. And that included Sirene and her spell of protection from the temperature. He didn't like it down here. The line between life and frozen death was a fine one and completely dependent on someone else's magical power. He have prederred a pile of furs for warmth, but doubted even polar bear furs would be enough here. He needed the magic.

And he'd continue to need it for awhile. There didn't seem to be much he could do about the situation. He'd need to stand back and watch the spell casters try things. And so the big warrior held his great axe and stood guard. Were the statues moving? Was anything happening in the pool? Might the door open? He kept his eyes open. At least the cold meant the salamander was less likely to pop in on them here. Maybe. He probably couldn't count on that either.

And so he did what warriors do. He stood watch while the mages did their "magey things."

Subject: Blade

I suspect the blade might be better - more controlled and less overall steam/fog. Maybe. I don't really know the spell.

Go ahead and try it. We need to do something and right now we seem to just be sitting here talking about it. Lothor will be standing around watching and talking about it.

Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver Q&A
Subject: I wanna know who killed the horses!

I agree with Norm. Give 'em a day or so and then move on. We'll see if they show up.

The other thing you may want to do (aside from messaging them) is to occasionally just make a post to bump the thread to the top of the line. Sometimes I miss updates because a thread can move off of the "latest updated" list before I get a chance to see it there. I doubt that is the issue now, but it is a good way to keep it at the front of the line and noticeable.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Ice, Ice, Baby

I think the ice covering the hole would prevent us from seeing anything unless it is removed first.

I'd prefer to avoid the fire method of ice removal because of the steam/fog effect. Disintegrate worked really well, but that would take another day.

Since our actual goal is to find the magic source and just get the heck out of dodge, I'd suggest we just open the door (after the usual precautions) and see what we find. But for now Lothor is just standing by Sirene, Axe at the ready.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Holes, holes that need filling

There is also that hole above the west door. I suggest we clear it and let Ulthok stick his finger in it.

But seriously, it might be worth looking into it. Especially for someone with a little head that would fit. Our giant could pick you up and you could . . .

As for breaking the ice with a sword, Lothor has both a great sword and big axe. But I'm not sure how effective that will be. I'd also be a bit concerned about it sounding like a drum on the other side. I know things have been empty so far and I suspect anyone here knows about us already, but do we really want to announce our presence by beating on the door? Lothor will give it a shot if you want him to do so. I suspect it would take time.

I'm also still not positive that we want to take the ice off of the other door. It might have a message, but it also might contain the statues. Do we want to do anything with the magic statues? We could just open the door and take a peak.

Of course, something might tap us on the should per the song and make us lose touch with reality a bit. A frozen siren song?

Topic: Titansgrave Adventures
Subject: Got 'em! Sort of

Rhyson was pleased to see that his plan to intercept the other cats had worked. Just as they climbed to the top of the pile he hit them both with a spark jolt spell. It was a perfect hit as both cats sparked and lost their footing.

But not quite perfect - perfect would have meant taking them out of the fight and his spell appeared to have just slightly wounded them - and maybe kept them from firing for a round. So . . . try again. Spark was what he did.

Rhyson immediately sent another spark jolt at the two new kitties. Like the others he would attempt to get both of them in its effect, but if not, he would hit the one closest to him. He kept his back to the wall as he cast, but moved a bit towards the pile (If this isn't straight at the cats) so as to avoid presenting a stationary target.
