Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Fire and such

Well, Lothor would have no trouble killing them swing by swing, but it seems that the big problem is simply getting overwhelmed by numbers. I'm not sure if a ring of free action would help him not be overwhelmed by sheer mass, but he still can't do anything but be a meat shield for those with more fire-power.

If these are gibberlings, which seems reasonably likely, then fire can be used to deflect their attack or keep them at bay. So while fireballs can destroy the rearguard, that is only useful if the front guard doesn't overwhelm us. Perhaps we form a wedge with the big guy at point and fire slingers in the middle? Is there a good way to form a big fire right in front of us while fireballing a bit further back? What about a wall of fire?

And a thought for once we get out of this mess (See how much confidence I have in you guys!) - fireballs flying in the night just might give away our presence even if landing at the islands only beach didn't do so.

Subject: And the gargoyles are down. Sort of.

Ok, so we need a plan. I guess we go back to getting out of the room the same way we were about to try before - the door up the wall. But we need to be careful - somethings know we are here. And those gargoyles could come at us with no notice out of any wall at any time. Or any floor. I'm not a fan of those things.

What say the rest?

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: Sacrifice? No, I didn't order any sacrifice...

Corban held back from laughing at the waxy-lady-things comments. Laughing would probably not be well received by either the lady, who might be offended, or his own team, who might mistake it for hysteria. So instead he held his position, keeping an eye on the lady, but more so watching the parties rear.

He was curious what would happen to this lady. But he was pretty sure it wouldn’t be their sacrifice. Not one graced by Star anyway. Guns ready, as always, he thought.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Miss a post and

gotta admit, somehow I missed the GMs post about escaping the Drow situation. Lothor will post shortly as a lot has changed since he was staring down into a mine filled with slaves and Drow.

*Ok, maybe I'll hold off on posting for a day or so. Does anyone have any ideas? I have a blade, but this doesn't exactly seem like fighter stuff. Gotta read my character sheet to see if I have anything particularily useful. I doubt it.

I once cared far more about football than I do now and it certainly shows. Good luck to those who obviously know more, or at least are luckier, than I.

So lets go with two unpopular picks.

Arizona and Denver

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Run

Well, the fog solves things a bit.
If we get away we won't be returning for a return engagement.
Mages pick the best method and make it fast.

I'd be inclined to say a big Peri might work best, but Lothor does not know much about such things. His wings wouldn't blow away the fog, would it?

Probably won't be a tie, since I forgot to get picks in. But, can I take my 8 point miss this week?

I would have picked NE and AZ
I guess I still will pick Carolina and Denver

Well, bummer for us, as the idea could have been interesting. But obviously a much bigger bummer for you. Good luck and if you do come back, let me know.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: A numbers game

Do we know what we face?
"Dwarves and golems guard" - but how many?
2 orc guards - unless they reentered the mine with the human slaves.
2 drow guards
Plus whatever comes at their call.
But do we know exactly?

So, questions for the DM - pulled from my various posts.
1. How far to the coast? Do we know?
2. How far have we come from the city?
3. How many and what are behind us?
4. Are we still in a position to see into the mine?

I always remembered a book of golems being how you make one. Does this allow you to perhaps control them? I like that.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Flying away

I like the fly away option as well, but I hate to use up the potions - if something happened on open water they could be handy. (No, I'm not paranoid about getting in a boat, why do you ask?) We could fly low to try and stay out of sight as we make our escape. Do we have any other methods of rapid escape?

And to repeat my earlier comments about leaving behind a little gift. In the old days I remember a spell called delayed blast fireball. Anybody have anything like that? Perhaps such a thing could lead to a slave revolt and the overthrow of the mine and the city. One can dream.

Subject: That wasn't the plan!

Well, she didn't just kill us, so that was good.

But, sacrificing us? Not so good.

Corban didn't sign on for that!

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: A plan?

I like that idea. How far have we come from the city?

It would mean we have to travel along the coast a bit (or out in to open water) before reaching the far point of this island since we wouldn't be walking to farthest point.

If we are doing this, can we leave the drow an unpleasant surprise of some sort before leaving? Or is that risking too much?

Subject: Welcome aboard

We can always use another to deal with waxen skinned beauties.

I am ok with either character - whichever the two of you decide. Corban shall guard the rear for either until his commanding officer gives him some other task to see to.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Hmmmm...

A question for the DM - do we have any sense of how far we need to go to get to the coast?

My first instinct is to run. If they don't know where we are, they won't know exactly which way we are headed. We might be able to get a decent head start before they find our trail.

But, on second thought, that seems like a bad idea. What happens if we get to the coast? We all pile in a boat and sail off? Do you really think a bunch of drow can't do something to a boat from the shore? Being in a boat seems like a good way to put a giant bulls-eye on the party. Lothor does not relish the idea of fighting on water while wearing armor - even without it, actually.

So after everything, I think Ulthok got us into a fight. Being on the top of the pit should give us an advantage. They have to come up to us. Of course, "they" might well include more of those mithral golem thingys. That almost makes me think drow are an easy opponent.

I've both made and taken over. (Corban was not originally my creation, but I'd like to think he has become so.)Whatever you think is best for the game, I'm just ready to figure out what sort of fiend the waxy lady is.

Hmmm....that is 3 of the 4 road tames and the only home team I picked was the Vikings, who I don't really think will win but I can't bring myself to pick against. That does seem odd.

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: If it looks unnatural it probably is

As the group moved to the door, Corban held his usual position in the rear. He'd watched the rear as they searched and moved through the barracks. Now he watched the rear at the new room. But it was never wise to be completely ignorant of what was in front of you. So he glanced into the room and saw the waxy woman and the statue.

Crud. He'd been enjoying the empty rooms. But it couldn't last, could it? Why would she be prostrate on the ground when clearly a fight was taking place in her temple? Who was she? What did she hope would happen? And the waxy skin - vampire? When something didn't look natural in a place like this experience said it probably wasn't.

He heard his commanding officers polite comments and lightly chuckled. Legends always spoke of the devil as a smooth talker, was he (she?) also susceptible to sweet talking? They would find out. He held his position at the door they entered. He'd let someone else watch the other door, he watched the events in the room, but kept one eye on the way they had come. As always, nothing would come on them unawares from the rear.
