Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver
Subject: This is not going according to plan

After seeing his previous attack after having been so sure he had swung true, Dane quickly spun around to try again. they had to take this thing down!

And . . . missed.
It wasn't even close this time.
He couldn't even whine about surprise armor or anything.
This was just incompetence.

(Rolled an 8. Wouldn't hit a goblin kid with that. Go Ranger!!)

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Talca

Posted for Talca - an arrow instead of call lightning. It seemed the best choice. Also, I chose to have him just shoot and not yet notice Sirene's choice of spell. Apparently it is something he might have thoughts on and I don't know anything about it. Plus, it seems like the kind of interaction Eol should handle himself.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Talca draws his bow in the new/old millenium

Talca saw the thing that had killed him appear in the hall. However long had he had been frozen to the wall, this thing had laid in wait in these halls. And it looked as bizarre and terrible as ever.

He felt the blast of the beast's cold hit him, just as it had so many years before. But this time he was not stuck to a wall and he did not succumb. This time he was not alone. Those who had found him, his new companions and hopefully friends, had a magic that foiled the beast's cold. Still, he felt it in his bones. And his bones remembered that cold.

He would not let the creature defeat him again! This time he would have a chance to return fire. Even as he saw Sirene next to him raise her hand and speak words of power, he grabbed an arrow from his quiver and in one smooth, practiced motion, drew his bow, aimed and fired at the evil beast's central eye. Let it feel his sting this time!

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: A bit more traditional

Lothor moved to the right side of the hall - to spread out the party a bit. He gripped his hand axe of hurling and flung it with all of his might at the beasts central eye. Even such creatures as this were vulnerable to good old steel. Let it feel the bite of his axe. And then the axe would return to him to be thrown again.

If the beast advanced, perhaps he would use his blade, but for now, he wanted to give the casters their space.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Manuevering in a hallway

It seems the best shot is simply to attack the thing. Then maybe afterwards do the wall of force thing. Maybe? It would be great to move around it a bit, but I don't think we can in a hallway that is only 15' wide. Any other great plans?

It seems to like cold - it might just be the one clown head, but the whole place is super cold, so clearly it doesn't mind these temperatures. Might fire be an option? I don't think Lothor can do much besides throw a couple of hand axes. Anything else would require a charge and make him vulnerable to the parties spells. Talca will use his bow, I suspect.

* a 15' wide hallway and it is 35' away - will that fireball hit us as well?

Tann - how high is the hallway?

Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver
Subject: Now that felt good!

Dane ducked as the big beast swung its club around. Just the breeze that thing created could knock a guy over! He did not want to let that thing swing again!

He thought he had done so well.
But no.
At last fate came in and swatted his blade aside.
It was unfair. He'd never been told the bugbear had armor in that exact spot.
But so it was.
Instead of his shish kabobbing the beast, instead it had clobbered the ranger.
He leaped back to the attack.

(OOC: Dane rolled a 13, with +2 proficiency it is a 15. Damage - 1d6 = 6. Much better rolls than last time!)

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Anti-magic

Well, assuming this is a real beholder at least in the sense of its main eye, which isn't certain . . .

The usual description, and the one Ody posted, says spells will in its area of effect or passing through it will "cease to function." In my mind this wording implies old spells would also be affected, not just new ones. Also, I don't think it mentions saving throws as if it 'just happens.' So I'm not sure if the wall of whatever would get a save or not.

I do think that we want to time the wall so that it is the last thing up, if possible.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Warriors

I agree with Ody - I think we need to make sure that the wall of force is not in place when we attack - maybe afterwards.

Lothor will almost certainly throw his handaxes. He wouldn't want to charge and be too close for area effect spells or the wall.

Talca - presumably would use his bow. Also, if a wall of force were applied, could it be done as a cylinder and not a sphere? This would mean it is open at the top - although the ceiling of the tunnel would prevent movement there. I ask because Talca does have Call Lightning which I think could flash down from straight overhead. A nice start to things, but it only does 3d6 so unless someone else has a top down strike possible it might not do us much good.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: The joker as a beholder?

Well, that looks like fun.

Ok, so two questions basedon the post already up.

1. What does wall of force do and does it prevent Lothor from hitting the thing?
2. Normal beholders have a central eye that simply dispels all magic? If this thing does as well, wouldn't that disrupt the wall of force?

Tann - maybe I missed it, but how far away is this thing?

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Talca's wants to keep moving

Talca was happy to get the rest. As much as his nerves were pushing him to move onward, for he remembered what had happened to the Twins in their supposed safe room while resting, he wanted a chance to regain his spells. And the spells came to him, after so many years apparently, he was still blessed to receive them. This, at least, was a good sign.

As the others spoke of moving out, he could only nod his head to his new companions. Yes, it was time to go. the corpse on the floor was a constant reminder of the dangers of this place. Skandrik had not been weak. Foolish, perhaps, and arrogant, but not weak. And yet here he was frozen to the floor. Talca did not wish to return to such a condition himself. They needed to move - he was ready to move out. He just hoped his new companions were as competent as they seemed to be, especially the big warrior, who seemed particularly wise.

Subject: Spells for Talca

1st level spells:
Cure Light Wounds
Protection from evil

2nd level spells
Find traps
Silence 15’ Radius

3rd level
Call Lightning

For those who are curious - I just used the 2.0 Player's handbook, so nothing fancy. I tried to get spells that might offer some abilities more powerful spell casters might not have already covered. (silence, traps, a protection spell) and then just added a touch of healing and an offensive spell in case his machetes and arrows don't seem to be doing the trick. I am very open to whatever others suggest. I will be posting for him shortly - a simple, "get a move on" sort of post.

Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver
Subject: take that! And that! And . . . almost that!

Dane jumped back as his rapier slid from the gash it had put in the bugbears side. Two more hits on the big beast - it had to be close to falling!

He quickly stepped forward and slashed again . . . only to have his blade skitter off the beast armor! So close!

(Dane rolled a 10 + 2 proficiency = 12. If I recall correctly, he needs a 14 to hit. I think. But then, that was a goblin, not buggy, so correct me if I'm wrong.)

***Ok, I know this is going to sound silly, but honestly it just hasn't mattered. As I started to look at spells for Talca I realized that I wasn't even sure what system Trilogy uses. So, uhm, this game I've been playing for a couple of years . . . what system is it?

I'll try to get spells picked by tonight. I'm about 4 hours or so away from any of my books.

Subject: Beholder

So, as odd as it seems, would attacking a beholder directly from the front make sense, at least for a warrior? It's own eye stalks would be no threat, but the warrior's blade would still hit hard. This, of course, would assume that the thing here is actually like a normal beholder.
