Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: How do you decapitate a smiley face?

Lothor caught his two axes as they flew back to him after doing their duty in helping to dispatch the queen. That had worked far better than he had dared to hope. Of course, Ulthok and Cor probably had something to do with that. Still, as he wiped the blades and quickly put them away he couldn’t help but be satisfied. It always felt good when a plan worked.

And it felt really good to have the battle completed. Or, at least, mostly completed. There was some clean-up left to go.

“That butch deserves to be beheaded too. It has some kind of magic that keeps it fighting and beheading is a common way to dead dead evil creatures. He showed no mercy and needs killed before the hold spell wears off.” He heard Ulthok echo the thoughts that were already running through his head.

“I’ll deal with Butch and Smiley” he said, drawing his blade and planting it firmly in the big frozen man. Once he fell, he would decapitate him and then move on to finish off Smiley as quickly as he could. “Decapitate everything” he thought to himself. Leave the enemy nothing to work with. But then as he approached Smiley a minor difficulty presented itself. How exactly does one decapitate a smiley face? By cutting it in half, he decided. Why not?

“I’ve got these,” he added again. “Check on Bareel.” So saying, and with a big butcher and formerly smiling face dealt with, he had one last pleasurable task ahead of him. He approached the fourth suit of undamaged armor. “Just in case” he said to himself and proceeded to tee off on the helm of the last suit with his great sword, attempting to launch it to the other side of the room.

As it flew across the room he looked up and added, “if anyone has an extra heal spell or two, I’m a bit less than 100% at the moment.”

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: The bloody work continues

I think most of what was said makes sense.

But I'd be careful about using the shadows to dispatch anything - isn't there a chance it will come back as a shadow? These are nice if Ulthok controls them, but I don't think we can be sure about that.

I'm new to this game - what can Dark Whisper's sword do?

We should check on the elf maid that was murdered in front of the throne when the group entered as well. Dead, no doubt, but worth examining.

Having the elemental cremate the lich's body makes sense - should we do the same with Dark Whisper's body?

And grim as it seems, the butcher and smiley need to go.

I don't know anyone personally, so haven't heard from them.

Also, I still need to get the character info on Jarenion at some point.

Subject: Cidal Rogue

Well, with a little reading the choice is obvious. A Cidal rogue is exactly the sort of character I was envisioning. Chaotic Good. He isn't a thief at all, just extremely curious about everything. He wants to know what is inside everything, behind everything and over every hill.

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: Hey! Look what I found!

As soon as they landed, McGuiness joined his fellow Ye Olders in gathering together their chutes and other gear. But he always kept his eyes on their surroundings.

He considered standing guard to be his duty. He was the sniper, not the commanding officer, not the doc, not the spook expert and not a demolitions man. Keeping his eyes open is what he did. So while the others finished the last bit of unpacking and dealing with the gear he wandered the edge of their landing zone, looking for anything, or anyone, of interest.

What he found were some tire tracks. They looked new to his eye, but he called over the others and Rat confirmed his diagnosis. Perhaps they weren't far behind the coven. Time to catch up with the bad guys. Or bad gals. Whatever they were, if they were aligned with Hitler, they were bad.

As Corban waited for the captain to issue the order to move out, he continued to closely watch their surroundings. Time to move out . . .

I'll go with a rogue. Although we do seem to already have a fighter/thief - so could change it.

When do I need to get things figured out by?

So, I did look a bit under the Audalis tab at the top of the page. Where would I find information on the races? I found lots of other cool stuff, but not that.

Subject: splatter shot

The sniper could, but a splatter shot weapon like a shotgun seems like a waste of his skills. Rat might me a good choice for one.

I haven't looked - how good with a weapon is Star? A shotgun might be a good weapon for someone without a lot of weapons training. (I don't know if that is a fair statement, but I seem to remember something about her not feeling like she was really military.)

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Sending a queen down the rabbit hole

Lothor watched as the suit of armor crumpled in upon itself with the same sense of satisfaction he had felt when the first one had been destroyed. “That’s two of those blasted things down” he thought as he nodded his appreciation to the dwarf who had decapitated it. Who knew if both strokes were needed, but it didn’t matter. Between them they had finished the thing.

But “finished” never really seemed to be the right word in this fight. Every time they killed something, or even many somethings, more showed up to join the fun. And he knew who was to blame for that. The queen. There was no doubt the queen was the most dangerous thing in the room. He glanced briefly at the butcher and ogre-orcs. As the fighter it was usually his task to deal with such beasts. But right now Ulthok’s shadows seemed to have them at least blocked. Protecting Sirene was a priority, but he wasn’t next to her and hurting the queen seemed to promise to be the fastest way to preserve the spellcaster.

So being momentarily without an enemy directly in front of him, Lothor did what he had been longing to do since this interminable battle had begun. He had two axes of hurling and he spun to towards the throne and hurled them with all his might at the queen. But this moment felt too important to leave to chance. He felt a little good luck was called for so he burned one of the charges in his rabbit’s foot of luck. With luck on his side the axes were assured of finding their home in the body of the queen.

“Go get her little rabbit . . .” he whispered to himself as the axes flew across the room.

Not so worried about the world - will just need to check on races. An Alacrity run game is always a good one. And 1E and 2E goes back a ways, which is good for me.

Subject: Interested

I am interested.
I could be any class, although I tend to avoid clerics. I haven't done much with Audialis so would need to read up on races. If one of the races Is gnomish I'd probably go rogue, but am open if so so e else has their heart set on it.

Topic: Pathfinder: Adventures in Runewen Q&A
Subject: Rolling again

Looking back at the game thread it looks like one character ran ahead and the rest waited in the tavern for the group to assemble. Given that situation, it seems obvious that once all are present we would head for the clawed upon gates as fast as we can. I think it would be safe to assume that and go from there - unless there is a reason to delay and go through another round of posts inside the tavern.

4 of 6 players posting.
Should we recruit 2 replacements if the others don't show? The elf and gnome seemed to work as a pair.

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: Private McGuiness ponders weird weapons, weird critters and Weird Wars

Private McGuiness ran for his bags hoping to get a chance to look at whatever equipment might be provided. When he arrived a bit later at the plane he was pleased to see Darling holding a couple of shotguns and a duffle bag that evidently carried shells. “Not my weapon of choice,” he thought to himself, “but a good weapon for the circumstances.”

Hearing about the salt loaded shells he smiled again. In the few minutes he’d had he’d gotten information off of some other soldiers more versed in the splatter-shot style of weaponry – and it seems salt shot was pretty much worthless. Except, of course, for ghosts. And that was the point. Now they’d have to decide who carried them. He didn’t think he was the best choice. He could shoot one, but the rifle was his tool of choice. The up-close splatter didn’t seem to require his aim. A waste of his skills, perhaps? Well, he’d have to see how the group wanted that to work.

And a couple of flashlights for light. Now that was an odd weapon. But weird times call for weird measures. Or weird critters call for weird weapons. Weird Wars call for . . . well, something like that. He grinned at Darling as he helped load the gear – “Let’s go get Boris Karloff – again.”

Subject: Oil

Xin tossed a bottle of oil of fiery burning at the queens feet two turns ago. I think that was why a fire elemental was summoned.

Anything to break a queens concentration.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Thanks for the shadows

Did you decide that the oil at the queens feet didn't matter?

FYI to everyone - normally the fighter would charge the big bad beasties up front - like the butcher. But with no one directly in front of him he is likely to turn and throw two axes at the queen - using his lucky rabbits foot to guarantee hits. If that isn't the best plan let me know.

Two of those suits of armor finished!

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Armor

It probably isn't worth the risk, but does the armor have to be in the area of effect to duck up magic? All of the armor is now near us, not the queen.

Lothor needs to deal with the armor he is on top of first. Afterward he could target the queen with well thrown axes. Perhaps those with bows could hit her now? Can The halfling target Her in some way?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Hate the flu

Battle thoughts:

With the lich wrapped up in a mind, what would be the impact of it getting hit with attacks? For example, a few arrows? Would that disrupt its abilities in the mental game? It couldn't defend against it surely. Perhaps the oil and fire can do something.

Lothor has two throwing axes (And a rabbits foot that could guarantee hits) I keep wanting to chuck at the lich to disrupt its spells, but he hasn't had a moment free from the armor. And if he is able to skewer another suit the typical job of the warrior would be to fend off the ogre-orc group. Or finish off the armor that is limiting spell casting.

Topic: What Evil Hides in the Hearts of Men - Q&A
Subject: Nomad/Jarenion Have posted

So, I got a post up so things can keep moving.

I have read the 4 pages of game posts so far, but not all of the Q&A posts - a lot of those seem to reference things related to conversations that probably took place in messages and are thus confusing. At least to an outsider. But the situation in the game thread is pretty clear.

I could really use a simple list of who is who. Who runs what character - race - class - gender. Heck, when realizing people were in rooms based on gender I wasn't even positive if I was running a male! (I think so) So a little guidance would help.

Also - Hammer, it seems from one of your in-game posts that your character and Jarenion have a bit of history. Is there anything specific I need to know about?

And now, lets figure out why somebody is screaming.
(Can we tell the gender of the screamer?)
