Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Warriors doing warrior things

Another door, another poem. He wondered if there would be writing at the bottom of the pool. And now they had something burrowing and something about to tap them on the shoulder and take them into nothingness. Nice. It sounded like a nice place to take a vacation. Except, maybe the deadly cold. That was a bit of a downer. Well, there was the hot tub.

"The burrowing is interesting, but we might be better off not meeting whatever that refers to. We aren't here to investigate the tower, just to find a portal." He'd like to have added more to the conversation, but for now all he could do was warrior stuff - like standing guard. And so he stood guard as alertly as he could.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Wizard eye

I love the wizard eye option. The Jin going into the hole as long as he is heat protected sounded good as well. Those posts would be great. I'll post for Lothor now, but this is really just the big guy doing big guy stuff - meaning standing around looking like a big guy standing around. And, of course, seriously keeping an eye out.

If we get one or both of these actions posted we don't even need to wait a week to get results, since all other actions would depend on those results.

A few other thoughts:

*We are here looking for a magical portal of some sort. Distractions might be just distractions.
*This was a tower, right? We went down, but we never saw a route going UP. Just a thought.
*Allanon (I think that is the right name, it has been awhile) is supposed to meet us here, right? I assume we are just going with "he's an arch-mage so he can do it," but it does make me wonder.

None of these are immediate concerns, just maybe stuff to keep in mind long term.

Subject: Natural Cold

Even polar natural cold doesn't get so cold if kills you instantly by freezing your lungs. Not in our world anyway.

Since we haven't tried to open them, is there a reason to think the doors won't open, beyond a bit of residual ice?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: This is all beyond Lothor

This is beyond a warrior, but . . .

It seems to me that getting rid of the water has a few potential issues. First, what volume will it take care of? Second, this thing seems almost like a whirlpool to me - with pipes cycling in water. Assuming we turn water to dust, then what happens if the pipes immediately send in more water? Have we accomplished anything? Will water falling into an empty tub splash? Will it create mud from the dust before we can "clean" it? Do we have a reason to believe it will get rid of all of the water?

Sorry. Somehow I thought I had already posted, but instead all I had done was put the question here. Oops. Post up. I'll add the attack numbers shortly - I forget to roll them before starting the post.

Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver
Subject: Let the arrows fly

Dane barely heard the Dwarf's comments on his attack as he pulled his rapier from the dead goblin. Instead of listening he grabbed his bow and let fly with an arrow at the fleeing goblin. Finish them now!

As his arrow flew he finally took the time to comment to his dwarfish companion as he took off after the goblin. "Go get 'em big guy!" he called. Then, realizing what he had just said, amended it with, "uhm, little guy! Go get 'em!"

If the goblin doesn't fall to arrows, he follows the dwarf. "Sorry Oskar, I was a bit too involved to catch the peace offering."

To hit roll: 4 (crap!) +2 proficiency bonus. = 6

Subject: Little scouts

So is sending the Jin a little way down the tunnel a reasonable option? With an endure spell first, of course.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: A familiar

I'd like to hear what Tann has to say about the hole based on the questions above, but having the Jin look a bit down the hole might be a good idea.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: And again we find ourselves in need of a plan

Tan - a uestion about the hole. This is above a door. What direction does the tunnel go? Normally I would expect an empty space on the other side of a door - another room or something. Does this hole seem to go into space that would normally be occupied by whatever is through the door? or does it go up or away from that space in some way? I was envisioning the hole being right at the top of the door frame - is this correct? In a spot like that it would be almost impossible for it to not open into the next room. I realize you can't, or won't, provide specifics, but am I envisioning it wrong? From what Ulthok can see, does it look like the tunnel goes into space in front of the door?

Well, unless Ulthok is volunteering to stick more than just his finger into this little hole, I don't think climbing through a little tunnel makes sense. I would suggest either:
1. We open the door of our choice.
2. We check out the pool more.

And here I thought barrow might be the rights word - we did come down through a tomb after all.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: barrow and borrow

Just a quick check.

In the poem three times the first word is "borrow."
But once it is "barrow."

I just want to be sure - that is correct, isn't it?

Before I post - would Dane be able to grab his bow and shoot at the fleeing goblin before it reaches the cover of the woods?

Topic: Titansgrave Adventures
Subject: Wasn't that fun?

Rhyson looked around at the remains of the catboats. "Nice thinking with the spray. That worked well." He moved over to the cat closest to him - was there anything on it or in it that would be worth scavenging? It was what they did after all.

After straightening up he spoke again, "Ok, Tomiki, try 32 at climbing that pile? Just don't make any noise this time, ok?" He added this last part with a grin while pretending to toss something onto the pile.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Just standing here while my toes freeze. Or don't. Thanks, Sirene.

In this ice cave Lothor had felt like a spare part. He watched as the ice shattered and another message was revealed. As expected. He held his position by Sirene, keeping his eyes open waiting for something to finally come popping out at them. It would happen eventually.

“Can we check the hole at the same time Ulthok reads the message?” Both needed to be done, so lets get it done, he thought. But for him it was guard duty.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: The plan

Aletheia - that really stinks. Bummer. Lothor promises to never skip out on the rent.

Ok, group, this one seems obvious, so lets try to get posts up quickly so we don't need another two week move.

The only real question is if we all move up together or just a couple. I'd say we all move up as one group within Sirene's spell range. We can then post two logical moves:
1. Read the newly revealed poetry.
2. Take a look at the hole at the top of the door. This could probably be done by the giantess. Or she could lift Ulthok up if we need a closer look.

But Lothor's post would be a pretty simple, "stay with the group and keep my eye out" sort of thing.

Have Dane keep his bow, but otherwise do the same. If that means attack before they get a chance to surrender, so be it.

Since you want us to roll attack numbers and said that Dane could reach them in one round, I went ahead and posted attack numbers for Dane on the thread.

Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver Q&A
Subject: Well....

Lets see . . . something interesting lying in the middle of the road . . . right where the woods come right to the road . . . the group approaches . . . goblins jump out in an ambush . . .

Everyone that was shocked and surprised by that move please raise your hand.

Yep. Predictable.

Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver
Subject: That was predictable

As the goblins jumped out of the woods to attack Oskar, Dane let his arrow fly. Drat! It seemed he had let fly a bit fast, without taking enough time to aim. Thankfully another shaft buried itself into the goblin he had missed. Nice shot!

As the goblins moved in on Oskar he saw another fall to the Dwarf's hammer. Another grin at the skill of his new companions. But the two remaining goblins were now too close to the dwarf for Dane to risk a shot. It was just as well that the dwarf seemed to be negotiating. But negotiating with goblins, who did that? What was the point?

Still, while it wasn't the plan Dane would have followed it did allow him time to move up. He couldn't shoot from where he was, not without risking putting an arrow into his companion. So, he set his bow on the wagon and moved forward pulling his rapier. If the stupid goblins didn't take this chance to surrender, he'd attack them from the rear. Rogues had some nice talents for dealing with opponents who were already engaged. He moved forward at a run.

( OOC: If it isn't clear - Dane will run forward and swing. Not sure if he gets there and swings before the goblins have a chance to react to the surrender request. If they accept he won't attack, if they don't have time to respond or refuse, he attacks - using his rogue sneak attack ability since the goblins are already engaged.)

Die roll: 17 (+2 proficiency = 19)
Damage: 1d8+3 Rolled an 8+3 = 11. +1d6 for the sneak attack = 3.
Total damage: 14

That should hopefully skewer one of 'em. I'm just using the dice roller on this page to get numbers.

What are the odds of hitting Oskar? It might change my post.

Also, how many rounds will it take Dane to run up? Again, the answer might change my post.
