Topic: Slate Q&A Thread
Subject: Rain, wood, clerics and a pause for the night

I believe we stopped for the night. You can't safely travel at night because the acid rain will kill you. Thus this shelter exists to protect us from the rain. If I read the original post correctly, the clerics went for the wood in the evening when we reached the shelter, not in the morning. So technically it is evening. That kind of messes with the post about getting up and cleaning up, but it may not matter.

It probably depends on if the DM has something planned for the night. If not it would be morning and we move out.

Subject: Jealous

I just want to throw this in as you begin your adventure into places where no man has gone before - I'm very jealous of your beginning adventure. I had too many irons in the fire to join this one, but if later an opening ever emerges, keep me in mind.

I will leave you to your own thread now, but have fun. It looks really cool!

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: leader and characters

There is a Trilogy recruitment thread up. Rayne and Roan are both currently open.

As for a leader, I feel like Lothor has sort of stepped up to that role. In some ways it is a natural fit for a guy who is used to being in command of troops - he has done this sort of thing before. However, he would not be comfortable, nor knowledgable enough to provide leadership to spellcasters. Nor do I, actually, although I have tried at times. (Gotta love the wall of fire) I don't know that I have the time to do the reseach Ody has been doing.

I do already have a battle plan of sorts explained in a post. We just need people posting their specific roles in the fight. A leader can't do that for them. We need to get as many of the buggers as possible.

Topic: Slate: The Hundred Years of Rain
Subject: These flats are boring, seriously boring, but the people are not.

Daxos of Clan Turin had heard a little about the disturbance the night before, but not being fully a part of the community or the monastery, he knew few details. As he listened, he knew the town of Pike was in serious trouble. Could Dax do anything to help? He wasn’t sure exactly, but it seemed possible. He could add his bow to the group that would defend the water. He might be able to help find out what happened to the clerics. Whatever it was, he was doing no good sitting here in Lake City. “Make your life matter,” his father had always said. His mother would not be pleased at this sort of volunteerism, but she would be proud.

As an unlikely group of others volunteered, Dax eventually added his name to the list as well. “I’ll do what I can,” was all he said.

As the group crossed Serenity Flats Daxos studied his surroundings and the group he travelled with. He couldn’t decide if they really were unusual, or just the sort of strange folks that made up the world in these strange days. Who knew what the world would bring? As for the flats they travelled through, Dax was very curious about them at first – he had never travelled the flats. The mountains he knew fairly well, but not the flats. Still, even his curiosity waned as mile after mile of nothingness passed by. “If this terrain can bore even me, it must be bland,” he thought to himself, for it was rare that he couldn’t find something to investigate. But here there was . . . nothing but flat dust.

As the group settled in for the evening and the clerics went for firewood, Daxos listened as the rest of the group introduced themselves. Finally, it was his turn.
He grinned at the group. “I’m Daxos of Clan Turin, up in the mountains. Loudwater is a small town, not all that far from Middleton, just hanging on near the edge of things.” He glanced at Damian, whose harrowing adventure had brought them all here. “I hope we can help Damian. A few barrels of water is a nice start, but the loss of the clerics seems like a long term problem. Maybe we can make a difference somehow.” With that he looked around at the rest of the group. “It is a pleasure to meet all of you. I will assist however I can.”

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: What have we here?

Jarenion entered the room with the others. This "person" in front of him worried him a great deal. Something wasn't right. This isn't what the legends suggested. Could the Lich be alive (well, alive in lich terms) and this be one of the witches? Theories raced through his mind, but none of them had more than a wisp of smoke for a basis.

He wasn't sure he had have started with the first question that was asked, but there needed to be a start somewhere. Carefully he made sure the door to the room behind them was shut and he looked to be sure this figure was actually bound. Did he have a mirror on him, just in case?

He waited for a response, keeping his eyes on everything - using the excuse of keeping an eye out for the gargoyles making another appearance for keep his eyes away from the thing in the room. He clutched his staff and waited.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Hmmmmmm

The little buggers want us, not the beach. They probably don't even come to the beach unless we are targets. The fog won't get them in their dens - and why would they go through it unless we are known to be on the other side. Which might be hard for them to know if we are on the other side of a dense fog. I'm not sure how well it works. Maybe.

If these are gibberlings we can probably stay safe behind a wall of fire - assuming we can stand the stench. And assuming they don't learn a trick or two about going around it - can they swim? can the fire extend a little out over the water so that they would have to go into water over their heads?

Maybe if Sirene could get airborn she could cast the death fog behind them, so that if they try to run away from the flames they have to escape through the fog. Didn't they eventually stop attacking into the wall of fire last time?
Who else can lob fireballs or something like that to kill as many as possible? Last time we killed several hundred, but that left many more than that alive, we need to get more this time. What a massacre, I can't say I like this plan even as I voted for it.

I don't know if it will help, but perhaps wet cloths over out mouth and nose will help with the smell of burned gibberling.

Congrats on the job. Ask your new boss if they have any good ideas . . .

That sort of thing always makes you look good. A strategic thinker and all that.

I have been going back and forth - our game manager suggested the party could use either. It does seem that a rogue might be best . . . oh, the options.

Oh heck, I went with a gnome rogue. Curious little guy. Working on it - might not quite finish tonight.

I guess I am going to go with a spell caster of some sort. Probably a sorcerer, but 3.5 is a bit different from the last sorcerer I made, so we will see. Now I need to read and check out the point system. Sirion will be in business soon.

Lothor votes to take out the gibberlings before running off to play in the woods.

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: Now why did she have to go and do that?

Corban pulled himself up from the floor. Trust a lady with too-much makeup to ruin a good night in a haunted temple.

As he stood, shook of the pain, and adjusted himself Corban looked at the remains of the "lady." Hearing Stars words he did have to wonder about who was in charge. He doubted it was the Nazis, somehow they didn't really seem like the sort of thing that would that to a witch. Then again, maybe those were bullet holes. Hhhmmm. He didn't like the idea of Nazis in control of nasty bad magical, mythical, demonic stuff. But they kept trying. Stubborn jerks. So Yee Olde would just have to be stubborn as well.

With such thoughts on his mind he resumed his position. Watch the rear and keep a general eye and ear out for anything out of the ordinary until the boss pointed them towards the other door. At least that is where he assumed they would go. But probably not until someone had checked out that statue and the leftovers from the lady.

Subject: A plan is needed

Ok, so we don't have personal knowledge of the place, but it was supposed to have been cleared out. Dang liches won't stay dead, you'd think they were undead or something.

But what then is this lady in front of us? A witch? I'm still thinking medusa given the pot. Or at least something that you don't want to look directly at. Do we just announce that we are outsiders - which is what the first post up seems to be doing? Or try to fool her? I really have no idea. I suppose we talk to her, but what do we ask?

just something like

"(Stupid liches name here) isn't available right now. What did he want with you? Oh, and nice pot." ???

Subject: Role Call

Can I get a roll-call of what each person is running at this point?

I think we have two rangers and a wizardy type.

That probably leaves me in the rogue or cleric area - I'll take the rogue unless someone else is dying for it. I just want to be sure before I put a lot of time into this little guy.

I think the Crimson Falcons game you had was this system, wasn't it? I liked my character Gelion if I could bring him over. Or I can start over as well. Human archer if you don't remember.

Subject: Character

I'll work on a character this weekend.

I was thinking perhaps a sorcerer, but am actually open to anything. It seems we have a couple of rangers and one spell caster. Cleric is not my favorite, so I guess I'd go with a rouge if we need one. But I'll check back before I start with character generation and try to fill in the gaps.

For some reason I have never been able to get the chat room to work. And no, I don't have popups blocked. I'll try the work laptop, maybe that will work. If I can get in I'd love to try it.

Subject: Hmmmm

Thank you for the summary. I do remember that now. I suppose I could have gone back and reread the back story, but this was much easier. For me anyway. Thanks.

As for the rest of us, this is an interesting twist. I'm not overly inclined to remove that pot.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: The lack of a plan is not the same as a plan

***Entry edited to account for the voted on plan of dealing with the gibberlings first.

Lothor brought the boat in near shore. While there was light left he intended to scout the edge of the forest - could he see anything? Were the gibberling dens anywhere near? Could he tell which they had gone? He would open some dens while the light lasted if possible, but it probably wasn't.

With the others at the beach he arranged things for a siege. Those who were strong and armored would stand at the front and act as shield for whatever made it through. That much was simple. The rest was up to the spell casters.

As long as the wall of fire worked there was little danger for the group - the creatures were only dangerous in large numbers and the fire would prevent their overrunning the group. They would have an escape route to the boat if needed.

He built up a fire - not enough probably to keep the critters at bay, but enough to attract their attention - and provide some light for the group. Soon it would be time to act.
