Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Questions and Paladins

A Paladin. Lothor looked the injured warrior up and down. Paladins had always left him a little uncomfortable. They were good warriors typically, and the fact that this one was alive was a symbol of either skill or luck - or even more likely, both. But they also came with a "holier than though" attitude that rubbed him the wrong way. Sure, they were holier than he was. That really didn't take much. But the attitude could get in the way.

Or, maybe not. Some paladins were ok.

As he pondered the attitudes of paladins, he continued to scan the battlefield for signs of life. While doing so, he heard the man mention "Drimmen Dreeve." Drimmen Dreeve? Something about the name was familiar, but he couldn't place it. Such things were not his specialty. But he'd travelled enough and been in enough fights in enough different places that he felt he should know it. Perhaps he'd soon be able to place their location. Drimmen Dreeve?

When he heard the man ask about his comrades, the soldier in Lothor spoke up. Looking around, he said, "I see no more movement. Were they fighting by your side? Bearing a similar coat of arms? Provide some guidance and we can delay a bit to see if any other good men survive."

So saying, Lothor began to move a bit through the bodies, searching for the coat of arms worn by the paladin. He shifted bodies and looked at shields.

Subject: Ok, boss

So, before I post I suppose I should ask the one in charge As previously noted we are pretty well crammed into a small hallway. Can Jarenion cas spells at our friends the ice skeletons?

Magic missile seems likely since it always hits.
A lighting bolt?
What about a Bigby's forceful fist to keep them away? Can he do that? If so, might it allow him to push it past a pit and block access to us? The fist can be big enough to fill the hallway. This seems like a good choice if he can see enough to do it. The spell descriptions I have read on line are not precise, does the fist have to begin directly in front of him, or can he interpose it in front of group members and push forward from there?

So, what can a wizard do?

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: March right in the front door?

"The front door is easy enough to see - and be seen. What's the plan captain?" Corban asked quietly.

While he waited for his orders he lined up his scope on the main entrance and the pillars surrounding it. He moved his gaze from pillar to pillar and shadow to shadow. There were a lot of places up there to hide and he wanted to know if they were being observed.

*If the captain says they go in, Corban follows orders and moves with the group. But he keeps his rifle at the ready and his eyes on the shadows.

Subject: Safe

Well, I guess being pretty means we are safe. So, no worries . . .

I would think this would be a good time for some fire (Of the non-black variety) but Jarenion is probably trapped behind all 7 other party members. He might be able to snake some magic missiles through since they can't miss, but I have a hard time seeing him being able to do much whilst this is going on.

I will try to look through his spell list to come up with options. If he is stuck too far back, he will concentrate on continuing the Wall of Fire - I believe it lasts 1 rd/level once you stop concentrating. So, if nothing else, concentrating on the wall will extend it a bit. That is a big army of zombie rats on the other side of it.

But at least we know we will survive. The DM said so.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Standing guard against who-knows-what in who-knows-where

Slowly Lothor roused himself. At first he wasn't sure if he was alive or dead. But, somehow, he didn't think "dead" would ache quite this much. Nor, perhaps, look this grim. And everyone was still with him, as far as he could tell.

So, convinced that he was probably still alive, the big warrior slowly roused himself and looked around. There wasn't a lot to like about his surroundings. "I guess that is what you get for letting magic run the show," he thought to himself.

And with that he began the long walk towards the castle in the distance with the rest of the group. He actually appreciated the walk, even when it became difficult, as it gave the warrior a chance to stretch out his muscles. Even as the others fought the muck, he became just a bit more himself with each passing step and strain. It felt good to move.

And then a hand moved amidst the death and destruction all around them. Lothor found it hard to believe that anything here still lived - it must have quite a strong will. But as Cor moved over to see what it was, Lothor moved in near him. He didn't get in his way, but wanted to be near by incase aid was needed - either from a sudden assault or to move bodies to free who or whatever was trapped.

It was time for another adventure to begin.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Agreed

Gotta agree with Keeper on this.

Yes, lets ask questions when possible, but this first part seems pretty obvious. Find new party member and get closer to the castle.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Appearances

Ok, so the best guess is the hand belongs to our new party member and, hopefully, source of news.

Does the land in general look like the same place, just with a different fortress?

I am very saddened to hear that.
If we were just one player short I might have someone I could get involved. He's never been on the site, so I'm not sure.

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

Well, I'm not familiar enough with the back story to really make a guess.

However, three things seem notable.

1. A time line was given for future events. This means that either some sort of alternate reality/change the past thing has to happen, or that time line was a dream/vision/prediction. This assumes that part 4 is an attempt to "prevent" what Tann's last post showed.
2. The crash of the castle caused much of the trouble - although the castle was also the problem to begin with. Any attempt to "fix events" would require an adjustment to the castle's trajectory.
3. Or, if the events posted can't be changed, then part 4 becomes a quest to reclaim Trilogy. In that case it is simply a question of "where did we go?" and "how do we get back?"

Weren't we told at some point not to worry about where the castle landed? I know someone responded that way when I asked that question, so I'm assuming the group got that information from somewhere. Either that information was incorrect, or the castle didn't really do what the post says it did.

Whatever. Where does Lothor wake up?

Topic: Weird War II Q n A
Subject: Gas?

When Corban was looking through his scope at them did he see anything on the zombies that might create a spark or flame? Basically, did he see anything that might allow the zombies to ignite the gas?

If he did, that might change my post.

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: And now for something completely different

As the zombies approached closer the sniper took a quick inventory of his gear. He tried to come up with something useful to bash in a skull - like a good sledge hammer. But his pack was light on hammers at the moment. He hated to use his beautiful rifle's back end as a sledge hammer, but if they were to remain relatively quiet there was little choice.

Seeing them through his scope as they approached, Corban almost felt sorry for them. Yeah, they were Nazis, but this wasn't right. But these Nazis probably were part of a group that was messing around with stuff they shouldn't, so sympathetic thoughts flew out of his head as quickly as they flew in.

Since they didn't respond to his captains message of kindness, he'd give them a rifle butt. "Lets see how accurate I can be with this end of the gun," he thought to himself as he leaped forward to quietly take on a zombie.

***Corban will try to approach one of the zombies from side. The other German (Not the one the captain hit) is the first choice, but if others are closer, he will circle around behind one of the non-Germans. The goal is to hit them in the head with the rifle butt while staying out of their reach.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Gems, magical gems, you say?

Lothor heard the brief discussion about the gems. He was a bit surprised it went so quickly - it had the feel of "oh, sure, lets give that a try." But what did he know about this stuff? Very little.

So the big warrior prepared to follow the lead of those more versed in magic. While trying to keep his eye on the tunnel he prepared to toss his gem in when the others did.

And he couldn't help himself - he also prepared to turn and shield himself from whatever blast resulted. Even though he was pretty sure it would either be nothing or a whole lotta something that would require more than a duck-n-cover drill.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: A wall of fire was effective before they were zombies . . .

Jarenion saw the bolt of green magic pass by the party on its way down the tunnel. He was not happy to see the ice melt and the rats rise, but couldn't help but think that somehow they had been lucky - that bolt could easily have been meant for them instead of those already dead.

As his companions in the large cavern responded to the renewed threat of the were-rats, Jarenion made a quick decision and called out to them, "Everybody into the tunnel! That is a lot of zombies to kill twice!"

Even as he said it he could not help thinking to himself, "or three times. Or Four. I bet that bolt would keep coming."

****Assuming the group follows his direction and backs into the tunnel, the mage will block the entrance with a wall of fire.

Posted on 2015-05-22 at 20:01:24.

Subject: A first encounter . . . .well, for me, anyway

I'm thinking a nice little wall of something to block off the bad rats is a good idea, especially with some of our best muscle in the hallway. I'll be back in a few hours to post in the game thread and will do some such thing unless somebody else has a better idea.

***Addition to original post - I'm thinking we want to get away from here. Even if we can beat the rats again, which I suspect is possible even if 1/2 the party is down the hall dealing with icicles, I get the sneaky suspicion that the bolt of energy might just flash again shortly thereafter allowing us to do it all again. And again. And again. So we want to get away down the side passage. Sound reasonable? (Also, if we decapitate rats, can they still reanimate?)

So, I'm thinking the 4 of us in the cavern want to back into the tunnel and I can cast a wall of fire blocking the entrance. Between that and the turning of the undead, our backs might be protected and we can move deeper into the tomb and ignore the zombie rats for now. Assuming the icicles are dealt with.

Topic: Chat game Recruitment/Reminders
Subject: Chat room

I would be interested in stopping by sometime and trying this out. Tonight I can't - tis the season of graduation parties. However, I am having a problem. I have never been able to get the chat room to open. I get to the point where it says the chat room "should open in another window," but it never does. No, I don't have a pop-up blocker enabled. Any suggestions?

Subject: Leeches, wererats, zombies and naked skeletons . . .a good start

Well, reading through the start of the adventure took a bit longer than expected, but with only 10 pages I just read it all so I'd have a clue what was up. I can't imagine why you would want to be sure to have a mage in a place like this. I should be able to get a post in for the mage tomorrow (Thursday) so that nobody is waiting on the new guy.

If anyone has suggestions, I'm open to them.

Also, a quick question - are Jarenion and a few of the others outside of the tunnel - and so still in the big cavern? If so, who exactly is still in the cavern? I just want to be sure I know before I start throwing fireballs or the like around.

Or are we all in the tunnel - which would create a bottleneck preventing 70 zombie rats from all getting to us at once?

Topic: Weird War II Q n A
Subject: head shots people!

As we wait to see if a new Sarge emerges and how the zombies react to our fearless leaders words, remember the words from the Carter expedition. Zombies (I'm assuming here based on the descriptions of our company) die from massive head trauma. No wooden stakes to the heart. And no bullets as long as the cap'n has the gag order on. We need big clubs upside the head.

Do we have much to hit them with besides rifle butts?

Topic: The Gobber King
Subject: Bad, Bad Gobbers! Trying to sneak up on us!

As Bou prepared for the plan outlined by Crow he was forced to confront the realization that this plan, like so many of the best laid plans, was not going to work quite as anticipated. The gobbers just didn't seem to want to play along. Bad, Bad Gobbers!

Still, the situation hadn't changed that much. Gobbers seemed to be incapable of being sneaky so their march through the woods was easy to spot. The overall plan didn't need to change all that much. only the path the creatures took on their way to entanglement had changed.

So Bou quietly slipped back a little bit further down the road. The space he had been occupying would now be needed for the entangle spell and Bou had no wish to be entangled. 10 steps back and his sling remained at the ready.

*Bou's exact actions depend on the side of the road the first attack is made on. If Bou was on that side he will back up 15 feet past the location of the furthest back x on the map and target (with his sling) the second furthest forward gobber. If Bou is not on the side of that first attack, he will Back up 10 feet past the last x and target any gobber that seems to be outside of the spells area of effect. I hope that makes sense - it all depends on if he is on the side of the attack or the side of the spell.
****Based on the map, Bou would just move back a few feet and sling at those across the road.

Subject: A mage for hire

Well, not so much "for hire." I work cheap. Free, actually.

But it seems I am taking over the mage. I will try and get some reading done tonight to figure out what is going on in the game. Any information you want to get me will be greatly appreciated. Also, I haven't played a high level mage in a LONG TIME. Which means I'm not used to thinking about all of the spell possibilities. If any of you have suggestions on what I/Jarenion should do, I will not feel like you are trying to control my character. I make no promises that I will take your advice, but I would certainly appreciate it. And if you wish your characters to survive, you might appreciate it as well.

Topic: The Gobber King- QnA
Subject: A question of trees ... no, seriously

I know we are waiting a bit to see if we can get another player, but I wanted to get an update posted for Bou before I forgot to respond to the sneaky gobbers. But before I do, there seems to be time for a question.

Bou wants to retreat a bit to allow room for the entangle spell - he has no desire to get caught in its area of effect. However, he also wants to be able to see to sling stones.

What sort of visibility is there in the trees? If he retreats a bit, but stays in the trees for cover, will he be able to see enough to see his targets?
