Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: A note

Tann - questions that say "Tann" are aimed at you and need your DM input. Questions that aren't specifically aimed at you and are at the party in general. you can answer them if you wish, but "you can try it" is sort of what I expect.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Plans

So, what now? I was sort of assuming that we would attack those at the ice, but we could follow those leaving and deal with them once they enter the tower. If they did so they would be in a nicely confined space for mass spells and we could quickly take out all 3. I'm not sure if it is a wise plan, but it might be possible There is also the question of how far sound will carry.

Tann: How fast are the beholders moving? Is catching them possible? How far away would our paths cross? Could we beat them back to the tower entrance?

On the other hand, we could take on the 7, I think, left at the ice. 3 are nicely clumped together around the figure. But that leaves 4 spread out. Some thoughts/questions.

1. Are they doing anything? Is there any kind of a rush to get something done? Or if we left and came back in a week would we find the same thing? (In part this is about - do we have time to hunt the other three? How far away can we let the other three get before attacking?

2. Is there a way to get the others to clump together?

3. The spell stays even if we attack, right? If we could get within range of fireballs and such, could we blast the 3 grouped together and when the others come floating (assumption?) we slip away? Not far, but so they can't identify our location to retaliate? This assumes they can't do a dispel magic type of thing from where they are.

4. If we fire off a bunch of fire spells around the smaller ice bulb, what impact will that have on it? Do we care?

5. Right now I think all we know is that these ice blocks glow, but we don't know anything else. Is it worth the risk of investigating further? If so, how?

Three more for Tann:

1. Does it look like the clowns are doing anything or just floatin' there?
2. How far apart are the ones near the ice?
3. Do we have any sense of the range of their spells? We saw several go off against us earlier.

Topic: Bring Me That Horizon
Subject: Wait, is that actual information?????

“‘Tis no’ his place,” Roman leans forward to eye Cracker from around his shipmate’s shoulder. “You want t’ pick up work on the Minnow, you’ll need t’ talk with Gory Tremane. Best hurry, though.” Eyes widening in realization, the curly-haired drinker falls immediately quiet and settles his gaze guiltily into his drink.

“Barkeep!” Fulvio hiccups. “Another!”

Cracker allows the other to lean back quietly without pressing since he clearly wanted to do so. After drinking a little while seeming to drink a lot Cracker stumbled out the words, "I needs be goin' for now." He stood from his stool at the bar and in so doing stepped around the man in the middle. He flipped a coin on the bar and said "have one on me boys. I 'preciate the company." Glancing towards the one who had spoken who was well into his cups, he asked quietly, "where?"

How he responded would determine Crackers next move.

(Assuming he gets a reasonable response that doesn't demand a follow up . . .)

Cracker nodded slightly to the man who had spoken, the whole conversation taking place behind the back of the other. He lifted his mug one more time and offered a quiet "to the sea!" cheer to them both. Finishing his drink he headed out of the tavern and back towards the place he was to meet the First Mate, wondering about the usefulness of what he had learned.

Topic: Titansgrave QnA
Subject: Magic

So, Rhyson as a mage is perfect. Of course, "you have no magic besides your anti-demon weapons" does raise a rather obvious question. Is the crystal giving him some magic but he might want to be cautious with it? What system exactly are we using? (Just need to read - 2e)

Subject: A cloistered war cleric?

Ok, I don't know how the cloistered cleric works, but historically the idea of a cloistered cleric concentrating on the war domain sounds a bit odd. Lots of wars in the cloister? I'm not complaining, it just made me smile, which is a good thing.

Topic: Looking for your input on my potential input
Subject: Prestige and exotic familiars

What a bunch of stuff to read - at least I found the prestige class info and exotic familiars listed in the DMs Guide. Cool stuff. I did see the elemental option. On one hand that looks perfect, but since I want this guy to look "normal," being followed around by a little fire elemental would seem to ruin the image. And spiders are just creepy. Now, the blink dog . . . that might need to be looked into. As well as other options.

The group looks interesting so far.

Topic: Looking for your input on my potential input
Subject: A blaze of glory

Elemental Savant looks very interesting. Sorry things are taking a long time, I haven't worked with this system in a couple years and my internet keeps dropping. Excuses . . .

Does anybody have a crazy familiar suggestion? I really do see this sorcerer as a farmboy (actually woodsmen family, but whatever) who looks the part but obviously isn't. I'm not looking to be exotic - at least not on the outside. Thus a hawk was the logical familiar. Does the GM allow more crazy familiars?

Yes, you have the sorcerer figured out. He is going to be a fire damage distance hitting sort of guy with a few other abilities mixed in for variety. Does someone else have dispel magic or do we need him to take it? Sorcerers have limited slots for spell types, so I'm curious.

I could easily see Sirion taking the spokesperson lead. I don't see him as a maxed-out bluff skill person, however. He will have some of that, but seems to get along with people easily and fit into any group. Again, he doesn't try to look intimidating or exotic, although he certainly can when he wants to do so. He is a natural leader. He is most likely to be honest and friendly and make you want to help him. In most cases anyway. rn

Topic: Looking for your input on my potential input
Subject: Huh

I have to admit, I don't even know what a moonlit sorcerer or a dragonheart whatever are. I will look into it. Right now I am busy looking at spells, feats and magic items. I do have the players handbook and DM Guide for 3.5, but I think anything else I would need to know more.

Topic: Looking for your input on my potential input
Subject: Spells

Any suggestions on where to look for wizard/sorcerer spells besides just the PH? Those are kinda bland and I'm looking at someone who is kinda flame oriented.

Topic: Looking for your input on my potential input
Subject: Pretty Basic Stuff

I have tried to run a human sorcerer that is focused on flame magic before and had the games fizzle, so I want to give Sirion another shot. So that is what I am working on, pretty basic stuff from the Players Handbook, but a character I like. Work in progress.

Subject: Huh?

What the heck is a hexblade/lasher?

I have the 3.5 players handbook - that isn't in it, is it?

if it isn't a rogue or mage type, is it a fighter type? But with a sneak attacky twist?

Topic: Bring Me That Horizon
Subject: How to say somethin' without sayin' somethin' while askin' somethin' without really askin'

“What ship did ya say yer from?” the dark, curly-haired fellow leans forward and eyes Cracker with a dull gaze waiting on his reply.

Cracker hated the directness of the question as there was little wiggle room left in which to maneuver. But he took a bit of time responding by taking a long pull (but small actual drink) of his brew. Wiping his mouth as he put the mug down, he responded with a bit of a glaze in his eyes. “Didn’t name one. Been on lots. The Blue Kite, The Dog, the Dawn, and recently the Dolphin.”
(Made up the names, but the Dolphin is supposed to be one of the smaller ships on the other end of the dock from where these sailors were met. One that came in recently. I’m assuming Wiley has some such knowledge since he spent the morning wandering the docks.)

“But whatever ship I’m on tomorrow – sounds like things are good here? Some ports – nothing.” Then he grinned. “I like the sound of “fillin’ m’ purse! If that’s true, then perhaps I could do with a bit more purse emptyin!” He turned to the barman and called for another. When it came he raised it with a nod to his companions.

“What makes it so darn good for purses around here?”

Not sure exactly what everyone else is running right now. Seems like we might have roguish types. Maybe. So leaning spell caster. I probably won't finish until this weekend, but hope to firm up a choice before then.

8th level. 3.5 system. Looks good.

Topic: Looking for your input on my potential input
Subject: Hmmm

Sounds like we have:

A roguish shadowblade or something tye.
A mage type
A Druid
A Paladin/ranger type

I said either rogue or mage type. I think a second mage/sorcerer would be better than two rogue - does that sound reasonable?

Subject: Spidey senses and wizardly eyes

Lothor watched as others climbed the walls and looked around. While he kept his own eyes open and focused on their surroundings, he knew his own vision was limited compared to what the others saw. He did not see any glowing light, but believed it was there.

He agreed with the others that with the new information it was time to keep moving. Onward and downward as this tower adventure seemed always to lead. He voted for sticking by the wall as they moved.
