Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: A post!

I missed that there had even been a post.

So, the results of the augury spell are ambiguous. Since the spell says we can destroy the gems and did not say we shouldn't, he would still be in favor of destroying them - the danger to him is clear. However, the idea that the gems may have use was also there (May, or may not...) so he wouldn't fight keeping them either now that there is at least an odd voice involved. So the group needs to speak.

And also, where are we going now?
Since rooms seem to change Lothor might suggest back towards the entrance just to see. But we are also in a hurry. To the sarcophagi? He can make a choice to make a choice, but is more than willing to following the ideas of the others on this one.

Great first post Bromern Sal.

I'll get one up in a day or two. Gotta decide how the professor wants to play this. He will undoubtedly be sitting in the back in his elbow-patched sports coat - as a professional he is a bit cautious about his reputation at these sorts of things. But the post is coming.

Topic: Dark Sun Game
Subject: How to get past the zombies?

Trossach looked at the elf when he asked, "how are we going to get past the zombies?"

He lifted the chain of his skyhammer and said, "a few of us are more than just pretending at this sort of thing. I wish I could say we had a glorious plan. But we took out the last zombies without much trouble. This should crush a zombie and keep it at a distance. That is my plan."

He then looked at his companions and continued. "Come. Lets keep moving. Those supplies will help and we still need to complete the mission. Just be careful if we start to see black stuff coming out of the ground. We will need to protect some behind our shields and hammers."

Still here. Waiting to see other posts. But will get a post up in a day or two. Trossach is very much in the game. (I lied, post already up. It is short, but I don't think there is a lot to say other than "move out!")

I have to admit, however, that I have no idea what to do for a plan against the zombies other than just fight 'em. And that didn't work for the elves.

Topic: Iron Age Q/A
Subject: Cold Steel

So, is cold steel something that hurts fairies specifically?

If so, are those knives something would want to destroy? Take them to the city to destroy? Or bury in the middle of the woods so nobody else can find them or use them?

Gotta reread the ring stuff - did you have to touch someone with it? If so, Savis is the only one likely to get close to anyone. We hope. But if it can destroy undead from a distance it would be a good prize for Birdman as he didn't get anything previously. Also, we still need to divvy up the potions.

As for bags of holding, I would guess it means "be reasonable."

Subject: What to do now?

Rhyson looks at Tomiki and speaks. "I like the idea of using a battery to try and open the door. I'd rather not shut the other door behind us. It just feels a bit like a trap that way. This place didn't look like it was abandoned for ages and ages."

If the others agree, Rhyson will move back a bit and let Tomiki go to work. He will place himself about 15' back from the door - where he will have a view of things when the door opens.

Topic: Iron Age Q/A
Subject: Plans folks?

The most notable things to me are the masterwork battleaxes and the hand axes and heavy crossbow that were described as "well crafted." That might mean "masterwork" although he didn't use that language. At any rate, they would have some value. Beyond that - what? The dress and probably bladed weapons until we are overloaded.

What with the rest? I'd say haul it into the inner room and lock it. Maybe even into the cabinet and lock it. We could potentially come back with a cart. Or we just abandon it.

A final split of the potions is needed as well.

And once back in town? Do we just sell the dress? See if anyone is missing it? Offer the letters to the guard that will be paying us? Take the letters somewhere else for translation? Consider going and hunting the beast that was the other job - although the letters may end up leading us elsewhere.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Gems

I am fine doing whatever the group wants, but I do think it is clear that the beast wanted the gems. Not only did it attack Ulthok first (changing targets when it was hit) but it also immediately turned towards him when the gems were threatened - that is why we were able to hit it and it ran. Twice it targeted the gem holder.

But whatever the group decides is fine.

Topic: Dark Sun Q/A
Subject: Mauls and such

I'll try to look up how the game I found them in dealt with a skyhammer and a maul.

A maul is a very large hammer - what is the reach of a longsword? This should be longer. Big.

I would think the skyhammer could do more than just 1d8 of damage. Image a war hammer swung at the end of a 15' chain. It is a bit slow. But if it hits it would be quite the strike. the whole point of the chain is to get more leverage than normal on the hammer. As I said, I'll try to find the original game description and get it to you.

Topic: Dark Sun Q/A
Subject: moving out

So, it seems we are heading into the black land. Sounds like fun . . .

Do we have a plan for zombies? Trossach has both a maul and a sky hammer (Think massive hammer attached to chain - I imagine that block of stone Azog was swinging at Thorin at the end of the Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies movie.) Both would effectively put a little distance between him and any zombie he crushed with it, perhaps enough to avoid getting splattered when they exploded in goo.

But we need to worry about hands coming out of the sand and whatever that black stuff was that got into some and turned them. Is there a way to avoid that? Does our cleric have any purify spells if something did happen? Are we planning on simply crushing them in battle under the assumption that we are that much better than the elves?

I really have no plan beyond the sky hammer. But the boss asked "what is the plan for the zombie?"s and so I suspect we need an answer.

For the DM: the maul is a long weapon with a substantial reach - would it's reach also give Trossach some protection from exploding zombies, or would he need the skyhammer for that? Am I correct in assuming the sky hammer would do so?

Topic: Iron Age Q/A
Subject: Little cabin in the woods

One quick question for our DM: We have been all around the cabin on the outside during the fight. Are there any windows on it or other doors besides the one on the front that the bad guys (and gals) came out of and that is covered by fog? Can we see anything through them? Zick would very cautiously peek if there were any.

Topic: IRON AGE Game
Subject: To share the loot, and then move on.

(Post can be modified if Birdman wants to adjust anything discussed without his input in Q&A)

Zick looks at all of the items they acquired from the bandits. He loved potions. But he really loved permanent magic items. Like armor he could wear. He fingered the leather armor that was magical and looked up at the others. "Being magical, this should shrink to fit even my muscular form. A little protection would go a long way." He waited for an assent from the others before stripping the treasured defense from the woman. "Savis, if the others agree, why don't you take the ring of protection? You seem to be the one that is taking the brunt of the fighting and it might help." He looked up at Mattias as he said it and added, "I know this leaves you without one of the better items, but perhaps you could have your pick of the potions? And if there are more bandits, or maybe we go back and deal with that beast that was also mentioned on the board, you can have the choice of the next set of items? But this should not be decided without you."

Waiting for the Birdman to answer Zick added, "Since I'm almost out of bombs at the moment, I'll take the alchemist fires for now, if that is ok. Maybe later it will make sense to switch that if they don't get used. I'll also grab a couple of the lamp oils - they might work well with the fire or my bombs. The potion of invisibility would be my next pick of the actual magic items, but Mattias gets first pick there."

Once the loot was divided he added, "I'll take a few minutes and put on the armor - maybe the fog will have cleared a bit by that time. If not, we can always storm the castle even through a bit of mist. But lets move cautiously and look for traps as we go. There probably won't be one on the entrance - the others came charging out, but once inside, there should be any rush."

Topic: Titansgrave Adventures
Subject: Scouting the room

Rhyson panned his light around the room. There would be a lot to look at here. And there was power. A blinking light, that bode well for finding more things of interest. But there was also reason to be cautious. Where had those bugs come from? Had someone put them there? Why? If there was power, was it in use by whoever controlled the bugs?

"Wait." He said before anyone entered the room. "Before you disturb anything, lets see if the dust has any stories to tell." And so he carefully moved his light around the room, starting with the floor. Was there dust? Was it disturbed? Where? As they entered he added, "look for signs of disturbance before you touch anything, especially around that light."

Taking his own advice, he moved cautiously into the room, looking around at everything and looking for signs of threat or disturbance. He moved first to the door opposite, taking the time to look for signs that it had opened recently and then listening at the door. Threat assessment was always the first concern.

Once he was satisfied by his investigations of the room, the elf moved to the cabinets. "Everybody should look at the controls, who knows which of us might find something we recognize. Once we are done here, who wants to help open the cabinets? Lets start with the one under the light. I'll open the doors if someone else wants to be ready in case anything goes bump in the night."

(OOC: Ok, so Rhyson does the following.
1. inspect the dust or anything else for signs of tracks or movement.
2. Inspect and listen at the door.
3. Look at the light and controls.
- first the one under the light. Then he'll start from the left of the door they came in and go around to the right, one at a time. Others may take part in this, but this gives us an order of operations. )

Topic: Iron Age Q/A
Subject: Magic crossbow

There is no magic crossbow - just one bolt/arrow with an enchantment on it. But if Savis can duplicate potions it might make sense for him to take some. He can really do that? Even Zick as an alchemist can't copy like that, although he can make some.

*Can Savis wear armor with his shape changing? Normally mages and such get protection rings, but if he is going to be our muscle he might need some protection.

What about the rest of you?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Let the debate rage in Q&A

This is what Lothor wanted - an explanation of why keeping the gems might make sense. (Although, of course, he still disagrees.)

Ody's comments on the gems:

"Ulthok took the gems because 1. they are gems and he has a thing for gems and 2. he suspects that they were made to control the creature, thus the creature is trying to get them so it can't be controlled. Ulthok knows there may be a continued risk carrying the gems, but he will be the first to be attacked again. Also if something in the tower had to banish it to the wall hanging then it may dangerous to anything here. Also the gems may be able to put it back in the tapestry. It's his experience with magic and magic items that leads him to run the risk."

To Lothor, the chances that the beast is dangerous to something here seems extremely unlikely. Possible, yes, but very unlikely. It is far more likely that it is a guardian of the tower. Again, just playing odds.

If it is something that can be used to either control the creature or put it back in the tapestry - that doesn't change anything in Lothor's mind. If it needs to go back in the tapestry, when do you want to make that attempt? Now, when no other great threat is in front of you, or try some experiment when confronting a giant cyclops or some such thing? Control it? Are you planning to try and control it? Again, wouldn't it be better to attempt such an experiment when not facing another threat?

Also, the fact that Ulthok takes the biggest risk only slightly helps the situation. In the last fight Ulthok may have been the first attacked, but he was certainly not the only one to get bloodied. And losing Ulthok, even if nobody else were injured, greatly diminishes the chances of success for everyone. The mission is more important than the gems - unless the gems somehow make the mission more likely to succeed, something that Lothor doesn't think likely.
