Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Life and Otherwise

If we have multiple raise spells - and Valene;s character would raise Peri, then I think we do it. Lothor votes yes.

Healing looks good to me - thanks Ody.

Does it make sense to have an invisible Peri scout ahead?

How exactly would the veil spell work? If we want to use it to travel under an illusion we need to it expressed right away.

Oh yeah, "Vixen" and "Babe" were what Cracker was planning on going with. Sure. He needs a cutlass stuck there.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Not against it

The idea has real merit. However, since we easily have enough spells/potions to heal right now, is it worth it this time? Or do we just heal up and move on, saving this trick for when it is really needed? Raising Peri seems to be the real gain at the moment. (What is the time limit on such raises? Do we risk not being able to do so if we delay?)

Are we in a hurry for some reason? What happens if the mage shows up and we are not "here?" But we'd only be gone for 8 hours or so?

How would we handle the reappearance? Is there a way to use this ability to suddenly reemerge as a group to set a trap? I'm not sure there is since we won't be able to know what is going on in the tower while we are in paradise so we wouldn't know when to spring the trap.

I guess I'm inclined to save it for now, but the trick could easily save our lives. Can a corpse be taken with?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Thanks Ody

organizing the healing is not something I think I would do well as I would never have found those extra spells.

now, about the plan. Since nobody has said anything else, I'm going to assume we move on. (Actually there is one more game post I need to read, so maybe someone did.) The question now is how to move on. Using mirrors to look around corners? Would that help? Or just a waste and give up surprise? Does anybody have some kind of wizard eye that lets us see in front of us?

What are the odds that a beholder can see invisible creatures? Tann implied there was a chance but not a guarantee that they could see a wall of force. Could someone move ahead of us to spy things out? Might this be a reason to raise Peri? Do we have just one raise dead spell?

I'd love to set some kind of beholder trap. Do we have anything that could be use to make noise? Sort of lure them into a space and then when they approach hit with multiple fireball type spells? Noise maker - I mean something that can be rigged to make noise on its own - without needing someone holding it?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Plans

Ok, guys, we need to get all posts in so Tann can keep things moving. I'm hoping Ody is able to deal with organizing the spells. I already posted for Lothor and Talca taking guard during this period.

****But we really need to make sure we have a plan for the next step. If we have nothing better I think we just keep moving, but that really leaves everything to chance. Do we want to do anything specific. Do we have a plan for when we meet another creepy? Do we set up an ambush somewhere? How? Where? I've posted a few questions earlier to get things going. Again, if nothing else comes up, I'll probably add that we just move on, but I think doing so with no plan is dangerous.

Subject: How to refer to a redhaead without getting your head bitten off

What is the appropriate way for a boatswain to refer to the first mate? "Sir." is certainly not right. But I gotta say, "Mam" doesn't seem to fit either. How would Cracker address Maggie?

Topic: Bring Me That Horizon
Subject: Out of the longboat and into the Hellfire

Cracker was not surprised by Hellfire’s firey response to their arrival on the ship. He was, however, happy that neither Blackheart’s presence or his condition were his responsibility. At least, not much of his responsibility. He did help get him here.

“Cracker, Shark Tooth,” Maggie spoke rapidly,“You two come with me. We got some reconnaissance to do back on shore.” Cracker knew enough not to question an order from the redhead, but also knew he had other duties to take care of. It was important that she knew he took those duties seriously. Hellfire and all that. He didn’t want it aimed at him. He quickly spoke of his coming duties. Her response was pure hellfire. “Then ^#$&ing get someone to cover it.”

What else did he expect? Nothing else. But he’d had to ask. He quickly turned to Chimwemwe. “Chim. Keep your eye on this guy so he doesn’t limp off somewhere. But if you see Kellen, tell him he needs to take my shift. If you don’t see him, YOU need to take my shift. But make damn sure someone is keeping one eye on Blackheart and another out for the Doc.” With that he moved to follow the first mate back into the boat from which he had just escaped.

As the moved towards shore the first mate spoke again. “There’s a gent here goes by the name Davenport. We had oursleves a ^&*@ing visit with @#^&ing Grover who’s supposed to be a prominent man, or some other bull%#^&, but before we go making deals, we need to know more about this Davenport. Rumor has it that he and %@#&ing Grover are butting heads. Either of you swabs have any ^&#$ing idea how we go about this?”

Cracker shook his head. “I’ve never been here before. I spent my time today down at the docks looking to see if there were ships leaving – the nicest ship I saw seems to be headed towards the Carolina coast.” (At this point, if she is interested he fills her in on everything he saw.) “But I can’t say who they were working for or who was organizing anything in this town. At least one dock hand seemed to be afraid to talk to anyone. Might say somethin’ about the boss. But otherwise I can’t help you any.”

(OOC: I just made up the name Kellen for a crewmate. Feel free to change it to something appropriate. Also, I am not sure about rank on the ship. Does Cracker outrank Chimwemwe? Are his orders reasonable? If not, he wouldn’t make them and I need to change it. It was a guess.)

Who wants to take responsibility for filling out the chart of all the healing to be done. We need a plan and should get out of here quickly.

Ody - when you do post, could you put in something about giving Lothor the boots?

Tann - the beholder exploded. Is there enough of a body anywhere to look at or was it literally blown to pieces?

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: An arrow and a blast

Talca calmed himself and fired his arrow straight into the evil creatures wide open maw. As he expected, the arrow flew true and buried itself somewhere inside the beast. His pleasure swelled even as the beat itself seemed to shrivel. And then it exploded! He felt the concussion of the blast push him backwards. Even in death the foul thing was dangerous!

he looked around at his new-found friends and surveyed the damage. They were a powerful lot - they had launched attacks even Skandrik would have been proud of. They had taken down a beast that had caused even the cyclops wizard to flee. And yet they had not done so without taking damage of their own. The two little ones were on the ground.

Even as he noticed these things Lothor, the big warrior, grabbed his arm and thrust a potion into his hands. 'Revive Ulthok' he was told. Then go on guard. He pulled himself from his momentary reverie and, recognizing the wisdom of the words, moved to execute the order. The small male halfing was Ulthok, and it was his little dragon that lay dead a little way away. He gently turned the Halfling and quietly spoke while pouring some of the potion into him. "Easy Ulthok, we shall have you on your feet in no-time."

As the potion went down the halflings throat his eyes grew brighter and strength seemed to return. Ulthok quickly pulled himself to his feet and looked to Valene, the other Halfling. Talca, his first task complete, moved to finish the second. He moved just past the edge of the party and put an arrow to his bow, staring down the long passage the had traveled. The beast's death had made a great boom and if there was anything out there to hear it, they could hardly avoid doing so.

As he moved into a position to stand guard he spoke up. "We must heal quickly and move on. With the noise of that thing's demise we do not want to stay here for long!"

OOC: Talca also needs healing and this post will be changed slightly once the healing distribution is figured out.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: And now is the time on Trilogy where we heal

Lothor was pleased to see his axe slice into the clownish beholder. The things was looked crazy and that was being nice. It's attacks were brutal. The blast of cold was bad, although the spells protecting them helped a lot. But the other weapons were brutal and all in the group felt their sting, some worse than others. In a battle that seemed to last forever, but in fact took only a few seconds, the final blow was Talca's arrow burying itself in the crazy things maw. It was the last real blow struck, but the beast knew dealt damage even in its dying throws blasting itself apart and scattering bits of beholder all over.

Pulling a bit of clown hair out of his armor, Lothor quickly surveyed the group. The two halflings were down, but not out. The little dragon, was gone. One of these beholders had been bad, and if there were more around, they could hardly have failed to hear the sounds of its dying blast. He saw Cor kneel by Valene to lay on hands. It was time for healing to begin, but someone needed to stand guard as well, and he knew well what his job in this group was.

He reached out a hand to Talca who seemed to be staring befixed at the remains of the beast that had previously been his doom. "Great shot Talca, right in its kisser." Now that was an image he didn't like! "He reached in his bag and pulled out a potion of healing. "Here. Give this to Ulthok to get him up. Then stand guard looking back the way we came. We need to give the healers a chance to do their job. I'm going up by the crossing."

As he moved up by the tunnel he noticed his feet for the first time. They were bare. Blast it! His boots were gone. Once he was up he'd have to check with Ulthok - he was pretty sure there were boots in that bag of his. When he reached the crossing he used his mirror to peek around the corner looking both ways. Once sure nobody was coming right away he positioned himself where he could see both ways as best he could while leaving himself concealed as much as possible - this was to try to avoid being seen and to give him some protection from breath weapons.

***Lothor will be very careful of the area of effect for the temperature control spell. He will not go to the crossing if it would take him out of the spells safe zone.
*I'm not quite sure what the crossing looks like - I'm sort of envisioning a 4-way meeting of halls.
*As soon as others are able to respond, he will get the boots of floating or whatever they are from Ulthok's bag.
*He will also hopefully be getting some healing from the cleric types. If not I will add to the post on that subject.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Wall of Force

Is a wall of force visible? If one was cast in front of a beholder, would they know it? Tann was very clear when describing the demise of poor Peri that it's attacks were area of effect spells. If it wasn't visible, and it did launch attacks, would they rebound back on it?

Is there anything else that could act like a spell mirror?

Also, does each beholder eye roll initiative separately? I ask because if it does might that mean that one eye casts a spell at the wall, but the other eyes, acting at slightly different times, see the result and halt their attacks. But if they all swing at once . . .

Posted on 2017-09-27 at 22:42:58.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: One at a time

One at a time sounds great. But how do we do that? Is there a way to lure them? But that might bring multiples.

Do we sneak through the halls and use mirrors to look around corners? (Or is there another way - say an invisible familiar?) If we see multiples we run quietly, if we see one we attack? Any other ideas? Do we just lurk somewhere where there are corners or a narrow approach? Am I right in thinking that if they were lined up the back ones couldn't use an area effect spell without hitting the ones in front? (Although I'm not sure the freeze ray would affect them. Maybe.)
