Topic: Any Interest? 5e Homebrew world, dark and creepy adventures await!
Subject: Hmmmm

I was tempted by Druid, but given the spell casters already, maybe not.  Plus the spells thing.  How would a druid fit?

Maybe rogue then.  Got enough fighters at the moment.

Topic: Any Interest? 5e Homebrew world, dark and creepy adventures await!
Subject: Always interested

I tend to join lots of games because they are all interesting!  

If you have 4 others I can easily sit this one out, but I'm also more than willing to dive in.  Although we don't know much about what we would be getting into.  

I have some experience with 5e although I am far from an expert.  Technically I'm running a 5E tabletop game, but when your the GM you can always just fudge it, right?

Happy Birthday!  

Your almost as ancient as that dragon!  Or not.  Much younger.  Much, much, much younger.  Stil a youth.

Topic: Crisis in Chandar

Kheric watched as the pier came closer.  He didn't mind boats, he'd spent a fair amount of time in a river town already, but he did prefer to have his feet on solid ground.  There was something about the opaqueness of the water that he didn't like - as if something could sneak up on you at any time.  But such things rarely happened and a boat ride down stream could make for a pleasant evening - when it wasn't blisteringly hot.  He didn't mind the heat and humidity so much, he actually disliked the cold more, something that others always found odd given his dhampir nature.  But not minding it and enjoying the sopping heat were two different things.  He wouldn't mind finding the shady inside of a tavern.  Perhaps there he could find some information about work and money.  

Sometimes you find the solution and sometimes it finds you.

Visitors, Travelers, & Adventurers!
Chandar beseeches your aid in a matter that
threatens to disrupt our way of life and the
local economy.
Should you desire to offer assistance you
will be compensated for your time and effort.
Lodging and meals will be provided as well.
For more information please come to the barracks
and seek out Captain Jirolin Urtius of the Chandari Watch.


It was almost as if the sign had been placed there just for him.  He read it twice hoping it might offer more details, but it didn't.  "Captain Jirolin Urtius."  Kheric wondered what he would be like.  His previous captain had seemed like a good man for some time until all of a sudden he wasn't.  How would this Jirolin match up?  There was only one way to find out.  He turned to a passing sailor and asked about the barracks.  Receiving a quick gesture and a "thata way," he followed his terse guide's information.  

As he approached the barracks he saw a man outside waiting.  Although he couldn't be certain, he had the look of a captain.  Who else would wear so much in this heat?  Then again, he wore armor as well, if lighter.  And the man had an experienced air about him as most captains and seargants do.  Well, he passed the eye test anyway.  Now to see how he reacted to Kheric based on the eye test.  An intial reaction to a dhapir could tell a lot about a man.  This man just asked if he was here about the poster.   "Have you come regarding the Call to Action we've posted? My guards are already stretched thin and we could certainly use any help we can get."

"Yes.  It doesn't say much about the threat, but I am interested."

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Spread out and talk, clump and talk

What do you want to do with the basilisk's blood?  In general I don't think we want to waste it, but we do want to be ready in case we do need to fight and die.  But if we spread out we can't easily have multiple people dip their arrows after the beast decides to roast us.  I'm assuming that while it would take us a turn or three to get to him, it will take him decidedly less time to roast us.  So my suggestion, depending of course on what the archmage says, is for the group to space out, but for several of the archery types - Lothor, Talca and maybe Rayne to be in a closer group so they could all dip arrows if things seem to be going badly.  Then again, that might all be too late.  Thoughts?

Topic: Hunter the Vigil, A supernatural Game
Subject: There are always eyes watching

Castle watched as the man/thing left the alley.  

He had many questions still unanswered.  Damian, apparently the things name, did not seem to know everything, but he knew something.  And Castle had questions about Damian himself, which he likely could have answered had he wished to do so.  But clearly he didn't.  He looked down at the phone in his hand and wondered what it would take to make him call it.  He wanted to dial the number right now.  But that obviously had not been the intent.  So he resisted that urge.  

But he had spoken about leaving information upstairs.  That would likely be the letter he had left for the preacher.  Castle was now very curious about that letter.  He paused, about to turn back into the bar, and wondered, why would the Man in White be here because of Damian?   Just more questions, but perhaps the letter upstairs would help a little.  He turned to move inside.

(OOC:  I'm assuming the above didn't take long to ponder, but that our lurking skateboarder would likely jump out to talk before he got inside.  If not, he'd go upstairs and approach the preacher once the others are gone.)

To the group - I don't think we want to put it on weapons yet.  If we don't fight it is a terrible waste.  The again, if we do . . .

I updated Lothor's post so that he distributes the basilisk's blood to the four Ody mentioned. (I didn't name them because I couldn't remember who they all were when I was typing the post, but that is who I would give them to.)

I can't not say "welcome!" on the offical welcome thread, even if I already did so on the Trilogy thread.  So, "welcome!"  

And Eol is really pretty harmless as long as you have a towel handy.  He's just . . . Eol.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Welcome!

Welcome to the game!

As has already been said, play Valene as you want to.  I took over Lothor 4 or 5 years ago from someone else and made him mine.  He is kinda like the old Lothor, but a lot more of me.  Actually, I really don't know if he is at all like the old Lothor.  He's a big warrior and all, but likes to think of himself as a bit more of a general and less of a brawler.  As for Valene, I have had almost no specific interaction with her, so we can start from scratch.  I believe there was a bit of background there, but I wasn't part of it, so whatever.  Now Ody (Ulthok), well, there might be a bit more there . . . .

The real question, however, is . . . how would you try to deal with a dragon the size of an aircraft carrier?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Questions needing answers

I posted for Lothor and had him put the question to Allanan again.  Given that Cor needs to wait until the Beholders go splat before he can speak, I'm hoping we can get a response from the arch-mage before Cor's speech.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Oh, come on now!

As the ice chunks fell away from the mountain Lothor saw that what was inside was indeed the size of a mountain.  A dragon "the size of an aircraft carrier."  He didn't even know what an aircraft carrier was, but had heard the expression somewhere along the way and had gathered that it meant something along the lines of, "Oh crap!  That thing is bigger then big and huger than huge and somewhere akin to the size of a living mountain!"  It seemed to fit.  

Lothor glanced at the archmage as he said something about the beasts heart and the spell to get the home.  Seriously??  Kill that thing for its heart?  He quickly turned to the archmage and whispered/asked, "Kill it?  How?  Is there any other option?  A way to beat it?  A way to talk to it?  Another way to power the spell?  This doesn't seem possible." 

As he waited for a hopefully quick answer, he glanced back at the beast.  He couldn't help but wonder.  What had they done?  What had they unleashed?  Not too long before the others had been worrying about changing the past and now this.  Certainly a dragon the size of a carrier couldn't do much to change the flow of time, could it?  Hardly anyone would even notice the thing wandering about, right?  He shook his head slightly as he turned to the mage for his answer.  

As these thoughts crossed his mind he moved through the group and handed out the 4 viles of basilisks blood.  It might work.  It was an option anyway.  He'd keep his whip close.  What were the odds it could work on a thing this big?  Probably not likely, but it was worth a shot.  What could a sword do anyway?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Fight, Flight or Freeze

If we fight we might be best off doing it right now.  True, we could regain spells and such, but those beholders are fairly tough.  With a dozen of them blasting away at her she has to be taking some damage.  We have a little time to prepare/move and there are a bunch of real threats on the other side.  This is the opportunity.  There is likely no way to set a trap for her.  

Is there a way to collapse the cavern roof on her?  And, of course, not on us.  And, of course, let us be able to dig out the heart afterwards?  And, of course, not give her a chance to move?  Probably not, but thought I'd ask.


I like the idea of not fighting.  I've been wondering for a while if it was possible.  

Is there any chance this IS the Dragon Queeen?  Just before we met her and in a different form?  I suspect not, but since I wasn't in the game when she was, I don't know.  They can change shape, so size seems doable for something this powerful.  

As for talking to her, I think we want to let her finish the beholders first.  And we might want to let her have a moment of freedom before we approach.  Perhaps standing atop a hill a ways a way where we are obvious, but not right near would allow us to be spotted, present no threat, and talk a bit before her immediate response of "kill" wipes us out.  As for the best way of communicating, a skywriting spell would certainly be nice.  Anyone got such a thing?  But I think just yelling from a safe distance would likely work.  As Tann said, her senses are good.  And she will be smart.  Getting her attention and not attacking might make her curious.  

The fact that she was imprisoned by these beholders is still a curious thing.  Giant (red?) dragons don't have a habit of being good in my esperience, but the enemy-of-my-enemy sort of thing offers a bit of hope.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Making a statue of it

Tann -  Based on discussion the blood might be able to turn it to stone because of how the basilisks blood works.  Would the whip be likely to work on something this big?  Yeah, I know he gets a saving throw which is probably pretty good, but would the whip be capable of turning something this big to stone or would it only affect a small area of it?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: And the tine for action is upon us

Tann - will we get any answer from Allanan based on the one post that is up at this point?  


To everyone else.  We need a plan and it needs to get posted within the next 24 hours.  

The first question is about range - Tann said the beast doesn't see us right now because we are at the edge of its range.  If we move up, he will probably notice us, although the distraction of the beholders might hold his focus for a bit.  But not for long.  Do we need to move up in order to attack?  The range is long for spells and arrows.  Certainly we can't do basilisk blood or vorpal blade type moves if we don't move up.  So do we charge?  Do we scatter as we charge?  Staying together to stay under the veil spell seems to not be worth much anymore.  


Ody - any good ideas on facebook?  I don' have much beyond turnbing to stone or some such thing.  Lothor would likely charge while shooting arrows - trying to get within range to throw some of the basilisks blood.  Or he can hand some off.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: What, no challenge???

Well, that sounds easy enough . . .

He knows everything we do, he is the size of a carrier, he is a dragon with a abilities based on his age category, which almost certainly is something that makes "ancient" seem akin to "toddler." No problem. Lets just call it a 'gimmie' and move on to getting the heart.

I have been wondering why the beholders had it imprisoned (and how they got it in the first place) but that seemed to be an issue of secondary importance to, you know, death.

Topic: Bring Me That Horizon
Subject: A brief shoreleave is over.

It was time to get back to the Dog. Cracker wasn't actually sure if he was safer on the ship or not. With the authorities looking for the First Mate they would be drawn to the Dog if they knew where she was from. Being on a pirate ship when the authorities showed up was a good way to get labeled a pirate. And that was a good way to get dead. But he'd thrown his lot in with this lot already, and if he wanted to stick with the Dog it would be best to get back on board quickly. Besides, if he was going to have second thoughts about a career of piracy, well, that ship had already sailed. He grinned inwardly at his own silent pun. Nobody else would likely appreciate it, but he did.

When Higgins got to the shore and asked if he was done with his leave already, he nodded. "Yeah. Had a bit of a drink and a bit of a walk. Lets get back to the ship, I hate sitting in the sand." With that he (hopefully with Higgins) climbed in to the boat. He would make small talk as they headed back to the boat, but didn't know what to say about his day. He had some information about the town and a lack of information about the First Mate. This was news for an officer. He didn't even know what to say about Cole. Or to who. But Sharky had beaten him to the Dog and he almost certainly knew more then Cracker did.

He'd just have to wait and see. But his other information did need to get delivered.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Plan

We need to use this time to get in position for whatever it is we want to do. So, what is that? Do we need to heal?

Roan - Fly up with a vorpal blade? Get in position?
Lothor - Use the Basilisks blood - seems unlikely to work but is probably a better chance than a sword or bow.
Talca - All he really has is a bow. I suppose he could also try the blood.

The blood would mean Lothor also needs to get close enough to throw it.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Distance

That is a long way. Do we want to get closer? How quickly? Roan on its back, neck, head with a vorpal blade sounds like his best bet to do anything. Then again, without called shots being worth something I'm not sure how much damage he can do since Tann seems unlikely to let him decapitate the thing. But from a distance he can't do anything. If he flies towards it after we have launched an attack he seems like a sitting duck. But maybe a decoy duck.

So, do we wait a round or 3 for them to get up to it? Or launch attacks now?

Do we assume the veil is of some use against a beast this magical? Or do we give it up and scatter to avoid all getting caught in a massive breath weapon or magical attack?

That is quite the itinerary. Just be careful. There have been sightings of a strange man in white. He has been known to cause people to behave strangely and to get into car accidents. If you see him, reroute your trip another way.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Damage


Would a called shot to the eye or some such thing do extra damage or prove debilitating in some way? In essence, is it worth the added risk of missing?

Also, if Roan flew up to the beast as a bat, could he get there in one round? When could he attack?

Topic: Bring Me That Horizon
Subject: Bring me that ship

#%^#@! He'd missed the longboat.

But no matter, it would make a return voyage. He didn't like just walking out into the open, so while he waited for the boat to make it back to the Dog and unload its cargo he scanned the shoreline. Was there any action? He kept his eyes open for anything out of normal. He had no reason to suspect anything was amiss, but when your profession was "pirate" you were always a bit wary when ashore.

Or when on the seas. Or when awake. And especially when asleep. Or when breathing. And if you weren't breathing it was probably because you weren't wary enough.

So he looked around. And he actually did have reason to be wary. If the law was looking for the Dog's First Mate, then it might take an interest in anyone heading toward the ship. Pirates loved meeting the law. He frowned a bit and looked around.

(Assuming nothing of note is seen.)

When the boat had made it back to the Dog and Shark Tooth and the other passenger Cracker watched for a sign of the boat's oarsman moving back to the vessel. Seeing sign that he was ready to return he moved out onto the sand and approached the place where the Dog's sailors had been dropped off and picked up. You knew you were a sailor when you looked forward to getting the boards under your feet again.

Subject: Options

Lothor doesn't have a lot - the previously mentioned rabbits foot could matter.

Roan - What is a vorpal defender of multiplication? I know the vorpal part, but not the multiplication part. Could that be big? Tann might argue the head is a bit big to be cut off, but the damage is big either way. He can turn into a bat to possibly fly up to its back.

Talca - I didn't see anything on his character sheet for anything better than arrows, which he will shoot, but which seem massively inadequate.
