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 . . .

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.)

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Plans

We probably can't make solid plans, especially for healing, before Tann gives us results. But I think we should still be brainstorming possibilities for dealing with the beholders. We tend to be slow and the more discussion we can get going the better. If we have to throw out some plans because something went rusty on us, oh well. But for now I think putting out all the ideas we can to get things rolling is a good idea.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Healing

Lothor also has some Keoghton's Ointment - which is a healing salve, I believe.

And I think I gave Talca one minor healing spell. Should we use such spells before using up the one-shot potions?

As for dealing with the beholders, do we have any ideas for how to do that?

*I'm not sure what was meant by a "veil." ??
*They seem to really like cold, could we lure them somewhere?
*Lothor does have 4 doses of a potion that could turn something it is thrown on into stone - but they get a saving throw, which I have a hard time believing a beholder wouldn't make. He has a whip that does the same, but that requires some proximity. Otherwise it is blades.
*Should we be setting up sentries at the cross roads while we heal?
*It is probably good that this beholder didn't have an anti-magic central eye, but don't be too confident that they are all the same, at least until we meet #2.
*The room with the pool in it was probably the biggest room we know about - does it make sense to go somewhere where we can spread out so as to not all be hit by everything at once? Such an action might also lead to multiple beholders at once and be a really bad idea.
*What would lure a clown beholder? Do we want to do so? Is our best path to try to take them all down or to try and slip through without fighting them all? Is that even possible?
*Might fire (or that wall of force?) trap them?
*Eyes known so far: Uber-cold, rust, and was it ice shards? That leaves a lot of other options. Is it reasonable to guess that fire isn't among them? Or not? Or anti-magic?

Tann - have we found any other rooms as big, or close to as big, as the one with the pool? Anything big enough to spread out and surround something?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Ouch, but at least it is down.

Tann - I'm sure you considered this, but gotta ask . . . Peri specifically hid behind Lothor, so would that have protected her from the mouth shard blast? Not the concussion, I suspect.

Tann - Another question. With this thing dead, do we begin to notice any change in temperature?

Lothor has potions of healing - in addition to identifying all of our healing spells, we need to decide if we are going to hide out and rest or simply keep moving.

Subject: Ok then

Well, that is too bad.
I just went ahead and posted his next roll - quite a bad one. Since we know the results and right now Dane is the only one who can post, there didn't seem to be a need to wait.
Time for the ranger to return the favor to the buggy.

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?
