Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: The choice is Sirene's I think

Sirene would be the one to fly or the one to make the boat. What does she think?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: rafts, walking, and boats, oh my!

I would really, really like to see Cor try to walk down into the depths. But sending the dwarf into the depths of the ocean seems, well, unwise. But fun.

A raft? I can't tell from the map on page 1 how long the distances are, but it seems like most movements in the game have taken some time. So the world isn't a tiny place, whatever Columbus might say. A raft on the ocean with a bunch of untrained sailors? Uhm, it would take some real convincing to get Lothor (who has spent time on boats, thus the name "Greenbeard," which should tell you something.) onto a raft. A stolen boat is better but has similar problems.

Flying? I think we need to avoid the potions - we don't know if we have enough which is a big problem. But it seems like Sirene can do it on her own without the need for potions. Do we have any ability to keep her invisible for the entire trip? I hate splitting the party - especially when one person goes off alone. (Peri and Xin could go with?) But if she had some protection or stealth it might work.

This feels a bit like we are dodging the GM's plans for the city and the golems. That is sometimes unwise. But having Sirene fly seems like the best idea to the warrior that gets to keep his two feet solidly on dry ground.

I finally have a good week and what do I do? Get so busy I forget to put in a pick for the Thursday game. Doh. Green Bay. But it is a bit late. I suppose I should go check the score - maybe the Pack can lose twice to the Kittens?

Subject: Serene flying

Flying to teleport does seem the best bet, I'm just a bit worried about doing too much scouting as one character alone seems very vulnerable.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Interpretation

Am I right in thinking that to do the "silvery paths" Sirene needs to go to the island herself first? She needs to see it before she can bring the rest? I don't think it makes much sense to risk everyone in the flyover if another option exists.

So it seems to me we need to:
1. head to the western side of the island to shorten the flight.
2. Give all potions of flying to whoever is flying - presumably the mages.
3. Offer up any options for concealment so they can get there safely.
4. Once there they can help everyone get there and back.

Did I miss something? I just wanted to clarify since it seems like we have agreement.

Subject: Gargoyles

Am I 18?
Yeah, more like 44. I started this game with the original box of basic D&D and then the original AD&D books. But not 2.0. And, of course, different games here use different versions so I don't always remember what each game is using. But that is my fault. Be happy to get the books.

I'll probably do a lightning bolt of disintegrate spell. Nasty for one of them, but it only hits one. I don't think I have something I can safely hit multiples with, but I'll check. Post should get up Monday night.

Subject: Deeper into the night

Corban couldn't help but cringe when the dropped with a loud noise. But some things could not be avoided.

As they moved into the room he held his position in the rear. A quick glance around the room showed him the bunks and trunks all rummaged through. The Nazis, it seemed, had made it this far with enough time to go digging around. So likely they weren't under attack at this point.

Those thoughts passed through his mind as he held his position by the steps they came down - just a bit to the side so he would have cover from the side walls. He allowed the others to mover further into the room, check out the beds and the doors. He kept his eyes and rifle trained on the room they had left. It was well lit, so he should have no trouble identifying motion up there if something tried to come up on them from the rear.

Watch the rear, that was his job. He would move forward towards the door, taking up a position somewhat sheltered by the bed nooks, when they got ready to open the doors. But his eyes, as always, would be towards the rear.

Subject: This is fun

Well, I'm not quite sure what the best move is. Don't gargs have some resistance to magic? Looking at my spell list either disintegrate or lightning bolt seem like the best bet. I'd lean towards disintegrate. I am very open to suggestions. That spell only hits one.

Also, a quick look on line didn't produce results - what exactly does the far reach spell do? With 3 versions of the spell on my list it seems like it should do more than allow me to reach something far away.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Flight plans

Castle info will confirm plans.

It seems to me that a teleport is the safest way to move the whole group - less chance of a big catastrophe if someone morphed into a dragon has a problem. But it requires a risk by the mages. Is there a way for them to stay invisible while they fly or in some way be safer?

Do the gargoyle like critters actually look like they might be made of stone? Just checking before I choose spells.

And I blame the dwarf for suggesting the room might attack us.

Green Bay is evil. It is sort of like rooting for the evil empire. You just shouldn't do it and anything you win by doing so feels tainted. But then, aren't you a Cowboys fan?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: A plan

I think just about everyone was on board with investigating the castle - from a distance as we did the town. It seems logical to at least check it out and see if an easy method is available that won't use up the potions.

As for flying - that would seem to require the ok of the mages. Assuming that giving them the potions and then having them use teleportation spells works, that seems to be the best option. depending on what we see at the castle, of course. But Lothor would be for flying/teleportation. What say the mages who would have to fly on their own?

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: The ethics of boat stealing by your local philosophical warrior

"Pretty sure we could overpower most sailing crews."
Lothor glanced at their short leader. Stealing? Well, perhaps it wasn't stealing if you were just borrowing a boat from pirates. But who would they be acquiring the boat from? Lothor didn't really like it when others had legitimate reasons to question his actions. His initial thought had been hiring or buying a boat. Not stealing. But deep down he had always know that a little deftness might be needed in this act. Perhaps he could leave a little money behind on the dock.

But for now they headed to the castle to see what they could see. The golem dogs made him a bit nervous. Something about the seemed dangerous. A guard dogs nose and a golems hide? That might not be fun t run into. What did bring this city to destruction? Maybe a riot that started over trying to catch some boat thieves? He grinned...

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Size matters

Yes, we could be tracked as strangers (as opposed to strange types) but if this is really a city, it seems highly unlikely that they would know all of the locals. And as a pirate port people would come and go all of the time.

But the "problematic" comment was meant about the elves (and Halfling) -- they would seem to stand out.

Subject: A room of Escher doorways

So, what way is the door oriented? Does it line up so that it would be normal if the gravity in the room had been "Normal" - based on the way we expected it to be when we first entered the room? Or is the bottom of the door oriented to the "floor" as we are standing - just too high up on the wall?

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Trust a Dwarf . . .

. . . to just take off without a discussion.

"Lets go look at the castle," he said. And off Cor went to look at the castle. Such was the way of things when one dealt with Dwarves. And wizards, elves and halflings all had their own little quirks as well. Luckily human warriors weren't prone to such goofy class or racial traits. They were flexible and could go with the flow.

So Lothor just said, "lead on master dwarf" and moved to follow at the back of the pack again. He kept himself busy by constantly watching their surroundings for signs of, well, anything. Scouting the castle seemed like a good idea anyway. He didn't relish a walk through that city.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: City or Castle, the question hasn't changed

I'm willing to scout out the castle. I don't know exactly what we have to fear from the city, but a healthy dose of caution seems wise. But it doesn't look like a place where strangers are unusual. The lack of elves is weird though. And perhaps problematic.

So lets check out the castle.

Subject: oops

Sorry, it seems like I didn't post last week. Somehow I must have thought my post here on the Q&A section was on the thread. Since all he did was follow along it doesn't make much difference, but I still don't like missing.

Questions for our GM.
I assume we can see the docks from our position - what can we see - are there any boats visible? If so, of what sorts? Is there anything we might be able to handle ourselves?
Also, are thee any docks outside of the city? Can we see anything along the coast?

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: Fool me once

Jarenion moved to the opposite side of the room from the door for the best vantage point. But even as he did so he had a vision of the rooms gravity flipping again. If it went back to normal it would probably just make them fall down as the side wall was likely to become the floor. Embarrassing, but not lethal. Probably.

As the others got ready to lift Sparrow he added one more comment to the confusion. "Be careful. When that door opens, down might become down again. It doesn't seem like that door agrees with our current alignment. Be ready in case we fall. We don't want Sparrow exposed in an open doorway and everybody laying on the ground."

So saying, Jarenion did two things. First, he braced himself against the wall/floor. His hope was that either the room would not flip or, if it did, he would simply be laying on his back staring at the door. He didn't Normally cast spells from his back, but there was no reason he could not do so. second, he made sure he had both a feather fall spell and a magic missile spell at the ready. Feather fall had obvious uses and the missiles had the advantage that they never missed and he could easily shoot them past Sparrow without worrying about side effects.
