Topic: Newish Game (2e D&D)
Subject: Rogue

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.

Topic: Weird War II Q n A
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.)

Well, there is likely to be something that can be smallish and filled with infinite curiosity about everything he encounters . . .

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?)

Topic: What Evil Hides in the Hearts of Men...
Subject: Jarenion moves swiftly, but not too swiftly

Jarenion woke to the sounds of banging and a scream. The scream yanked him awake in an instant. His first thought was of the cleric – what had Danon gotten himself into? Going off alone, well not quite alone – and that was the point! - could make for some very enticing times, but also grave danger. “Never split the party!” was an ancient bit of wisdom that had been pounded into his head, but somehow it just didn’t work when night time trysts were involved and blood wasn’t flowing to people’s heads. “Damn! What did that cleric get himself into?”

But even as the thought sped across his mind, the mage realized that the cleric was likely not to blame for this intrusion. The noise and cry had come from downstairs and he didn’t think it had sounded liked Danon. But whatever it was, it could clearly not be ignored.

Jarenion hated acting without the others – it was rarely wise for anyone, and almost certainly unwise for a mage, to charge ahead while the warriors donned their armor. But since he did not need to don armor, he was always the quickest to prepare in such situations. And so after jumping up from his straw pallet, Jarenion made sure the others were up and offered an extra hand if needed. Being the first to prepare, he moved to the door where he paused and listened. If he heard nothing directly outside, he opened the door to try and better hear what was happening downstairs.

(((Jarenion gets up and grabs anything he might need. Assuming there isn’t much he can do to assist others, he listens at the door and then opens it a crack. If it seems reasonable and the others are almost ready, he would move to the top of the stairs, but NOT down them. He wants information, but not to expose himself without the aid of the others.)))

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: Let the light shine on a salty shotgun blast

Private McGuiness liked the information they had received. Going in already know a bit about how to fight these things would help a lot. He’d heard about Carter and the King Tut stuff – curse and all. (He must have learned something in Mr. Dahl’s history class!) At least he’d heard what the public was allowed to hear. He needed to know it all. Too bad it didn’t seem like there was much more.

“Sir. Thank you for the information. That will be very helpful. You said ‘extreme trauma to the head’ for the lower types of undead. Do Carter’s notes make mention of whether or not a single bullet is enough? Can I pick one off with a well-aimed bullet? Or will that take multiple bullets or a shotgun? Or do we just not know?”

The sniper paused for a breath and added, “I don’t usually use shotguns. Do they need to be rigged in some way for salt? We need to get some shotguns, salt shot – and regular shot. I’d imagine a shotgun blast might be a good way to generate “extreme trauma” to the head. Anyone know if salt shot will do the same damage as regular shot? It would be nice if we didn’t have to reload for different critters. And what is the most mobile way to generate a lot of light? Anybody here know this stuff?”

As the captain ordered them all to get ready to depart, Corban couldn’t help but wish for a few extra minutes. “Cap’n, sir. My bags basically packed and ready. In 30 minutes is it possible to get our hands on some shotguns and shot – salt and regular? I’d love to blast a couple sandbags before we leave to compare the effects. That report gives us an edge, I’d sure love to maximize it.”

After hopefully getting a few quick answers Corban ran to get his gear. It didn’t take long. He’d been expecting another mission on short notice, so he’d kept it packed. But he really wanted to make sure they had the right equipment. And while he’d used a shotgun before and seen its effects, he’d never loaded one with salt. He wanted to know how it was done and what the result would be when the trigger was pulled. “Prepared” and “alive” were two words that seemed to go together in the military, especially in Ye Olde military.

Topic: Talk about The Inn
Subject: Hmmmm . . . .

I like a lot of things about the place.

I did like the comics - it would be cool if we had people who could do that. I'd offer my talents in this if I actually had any talent in this. But I don't.

As has been suggested already, the ability to see other peoples posts when writing your own would be helpful. As is, I usually write mine in word so that I can see things, then copy it into the thread. But that means redoing all the formatting. I guess that could be adjusted also.

And . . . chat room. I've never done the chat room. I need to check that out. And a game in the chat room? That could be cool. I think I'm headed to the chat room right now. See! It is already improving!
