But you know what would be heaven on earth? . . . an onion slice.

And maybe some lettuce and tomato.
I do like mine with Heinz 57 and French fried potatoes.
Maybe a big kosher pickle and a cold draught beer?

Now see what you did?!

Good god almighty which way do I steer??!

I need a . . . cheeseburger in paradise!

(Hunger does not seem very meditative!)

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Sundial

I believe Tann specifically noted that the sundial reacted to the identify spell, but because it was still encased in ice was not identified. Is it worth it to melt the ice on it and then cast another identify? Assuming we have one, of course.

Or do we need to melt it before we use legend lore?

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: A whip . . .now I just need a cool hat! Are helmets that cool?

Lothor took the whip from the table after it had been identified. "This might be useful where a sword would fail. If no one objects I will do my best 'Trilogy Jones' impression." When everyone else just looked at him oddly, he mumbled, "hard to explain." But when your raiding tombs and hunting antiquities, some things just fit.

With such odd thoughts wandering through his head he moved back to his guard position wondering where the ideas had come from. Time to move on if the mages could learn no more.

That works for me. I wasn't sure the ranger would want to do that. I rolled a 2.

So, do we have any plan than moving on?

I just want to be sure we have something Tann can work with for his next post.

Speak up if anyone else is into whips otherwise Lothor will, uhm, use it.

Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver
Subject: Keeping it moving

Dane understood the argument about not being seen. He had a history of not wanting to be seen - and he really did not want the goblins to see him before he saw them. But without a light he would never see them. And how do you start a light in the middle of a fight? That would be bad timing. So he stressed the need for light.

As for where they went he offered the ranger a choice. They could either kill the chained up wolves and he'd try to climb the hole or whatever it was in the cavern. Otherwise move on. He didn't want to climb with hungry wolves at the bottom. He assumed this meant they would move on.

(If the ranger wants to kill the wolves Dane would aid with that with his bow. But assuming not, the plan is to move on down the path.)

Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver Q&A
Subject: Light and down the path

Lets use some light and go down the path by the stream.

Dane needs to be able to see I think and I don't want to move into the wolves unless we get rid of them. They might like her, but not us. I'd climb whatever was there without the wolves, but with 'em... no.

Topic: Bring Me That Horizon
Subject: A Pirates Tail . . .wait, I have a tail!? No, a tale. And this guy is actually literate

William "Cracker" Wiley watched as the Sun Dog sailed towards the port of Tortuba and wondered what he would find there. The Brits had been going back and forth with others for control of the island for years. Cracker didn’t really care what government claimed whichever patch of dirt, just so long as he could pee on it when needed. But he would prefer it if they didn’t run into the royal navy. He had a history with the navy that he wasn’t very keen to revisit.

Almost a dozen years ago he had been press ganged by the navy when only 16 years old – right after having watched his father’s murder. It was a bad weekend. Over the years he came to love the sea, but his bitterness towards the navy had grown almost daily as he watched the brutality towards the sailors and the luxury, power and corruption of those in command. He never forgot that he was there against his will. About two years ago his ship, a third-rate frigate called the York, chased down a pirate ship that had been targeting British shipping along the coast of America. As the battle approached Wiley found himself hoping that the pirates would win. He held back in combat, not wanting to aid the navy. Things were not going well for the navy and in the midst of the scrum one of the officers, a particularly brutal lieutenant named Polesman, called Bruiser” by the crew, spotted Wiley and threatened him as a coward for holding back. Wiley was many things, but not a coward, and when Bruiser attacked him with a truncheon he put his cutlass between the man’s ribs, enjoying the look of surprise it created, if only briefly. Around him the fight continued to move in the pirate’s favor and he heard his captain call to try and pull away. Seeing his chance, Wiley used the cover of the battle to jump onto the pirate’s ship and conceal himself from the vision of the naval vessel. When the naval vessel attempted to run the pirates let them go with only a few cannonballs as a parting gift – there was little loot of value on a naval vessel anyway.

With the battle over William surrendered to the pirates and asked if he could join them. It took a little while to earn their trust, but he did this and proved to be a capable soldier quickly moving into his old position of boatswain on the new vessel. Unfortunately the man at the helm of his new ship, Captain Addicus “Grimace” Karver was as brutal as any naval commander could be, but perhaps not as competent. At the first port of call, which happened to be Charlotte, S.C. in the Americas, Wiley abandoned the crew and made his way into the town. When the ol’ Grimace and crew had sailed on he went back to the harbor and looked for work on another ship. He found it quickly and sailed off on a moderately sized vessel. But fate appeared to have pirate plans for him, and it wasn’t long before this ship was attacked by pirates – this time it was the Sun Dog and Captain Cole. When given the choice of joining the crew Wiley umped at the chance. He had seen the crew perform under the captain’s commands in the very short fight and had been impressed. The sailors seemed to obey quickly and looked in reasonable shape for sailors. He wondered about following a woman, but if the captain was competent he couldn’t care less what her gender might be. And both she and her sister would be something pretty to look at on those long days and nights at sea, even if forever out of reach.

And so Wiley found himself aboard the Sun Dog and a pirate once more. And he found himself staring at an approaching port that just might be in the hands of the British. He didn’t think many in the British navy would recognize him – he was almost certainly presumed dead in the battle and fallen overboard. Nobody would know about his fight with Bruiser, but that wouldn’t matter anyway, since if he was recognized his was still guilty of desertion. Besides, he was a pirate. Did one need more of a crime than that? Perhaps kidnapping a young kid who was having the worst week of his life was worse, but if you were the navy that wasn’t even considered a crime. He just shook his head at the way the world functioned and went back to work.

Lothor would be willing to take the whip. It is an interesting piece of gear. He also already has magical footwear.

Uhm, I'm a bit confused.

Am I riding a kayak made of your hopes and dreams - and those hopes and dreams are wearing a wet suit?

Or am I wearing the wetsuit and your hopes and dreams are all naked while comprising the kayak?

I'm not quite sure which of those is creepier, but I'm game for the "paddle around the sun part."

Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver Q&A
Subject: Light

I believe Pavel had torches, but I wanted to check with the DM on how you would handle such things. If the elf leads the way with good vision, would a torch at the back of the party mess that up? Also, how would you handle a torch and a bow? If Dane were carrying a torch, would he have to drop it to shoot his bow? What would dropping it do to light and chances of putting it out? It makes a difference for which weapon he carries.

Subject: Helpless in the dark

Dane nodded at his companions words. "I agree. I don't think we want to try climbing a chute in the dark with goblins likely at the top and wolves at the bottom. There is a clear path forward." At this he nodded at the path along the waterway. "But I can't see anything in here. Once all of the light from the entrance is gone, I'll be totally blind. I know a torch is like a "we are here!" sign, but I don't think there is much I can do about it. I'm here, and, well, I need to see. Can we light a torch as soon as all light from the entrance is gone?"

(OOC: I was assuming there was still a little light from the entrance allowing Dane limited vision. He could carry the torch at the back of the party.)

I haven't had time to look at this since first posting, but should tonight or tomorrow. If it is still open, I'd take a boatswain, however it is spelled. If not, a carpenter.

Subject: I like this lady!

Now that is having a way with animals!

I'd suggest moving on down the hallway. I don't think we want to try to climb up something into the dark with wolves beneath us. Don't like leaving them behind us either, but, oh well.

Subject: Wolves in the dark

"Sure, why not wolves in the dark?" thought Dane. Why wouldn't a hero crawl into a wolves den? It could be fun. He shook his head at what he was doing, but was still grinning. At least these little pups seemed to be chained. That was convenient.

He allowed their new friend the ranger to move past him and try whatever it is she was going to try. But he put an arrow to bow and moved up right next to the entrance - remaining 99% hidden by the wall in case there were goblins in there. But he had the arrow ready to go - if the a wolf broke free or something else happened, he was ready to fire.

Now just let those wolves stay quiet.

Subject: Back

And I am now back from my own adventure in the wilds and again have internet access.

Wolves - at the moment they don't seem to be too loud. If they can't reach us, we could try to shoot them from the opening. At least if the rangery stuff fails. i'm not sure if there is much to post until we know what the ranger does.

Dane would knock an arrow and get ready to shoot if the ranger fails - I assume she wouldn't actually get within their range. I guess I can post that.

Subject: Back and ready to move

After about 10 days on vacation and without internet, I am back and ready to say, "I don't know what to do next."

Not trying to bring back Scandrick and distributing his goods seem obvious, I guess. I guess we move on? I suppose I'm assuming this wasn't the end of the tunnel and there is an onward to go. or am I missing something and there is more to do in the room?

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Not everyone needs to be resurected

Lothor held his position on watch by the door. He heard Talca's description of his employer and his goods. If the story he told was true, and it certainly seemed to match the evidence at hand, then this Scandrick had not earned a return journey, not that it was in his power to provide it anyway. As for his goods, it sounded like there were some very useful things there, but until more was known it was hard to say. He already had boots and rings that he knew and trusted.

For now he just wondered about the table/clock. He had no idea what a magic source that could transport them across the centuries would look like. Surely the mages would know it when they saw it or felt its power, wouldn't they? And they hadn't reacted to this table, despite its clock features. It seemed they needed to continue even deeper into this frozen hell.

He held his position by the door and waited for Cor and Ulthok to lead them ever deeper into the tower.

Topic: Titansgrave Adventures
Subject: This is not how surgery is supposed to go.

The first flashes of combat went fairly well as Tomiki's blaster hit one bot and Rhyson's spell hit both. "Yes!" thought the mage at the ability hit two at once. But his pleasure was quickly stopped as he saw Mal get needled and collapse. That couldn't be good - especially with the laser bot talking about dissection. But he wasn't in a position to do much about it. His spells generally hit an area and anything he did to that bot might well hit their unconscious companion.

So instead he focused on keeping himself alive and taking out the other bot. There were beds and other obstacles in the room - he tried mightily to keep one between him and the oncoming needle pusher. He cast another spark jolt - again trying to get this med bot and the original one with many lasers in it if possible. But if not, the dissector closest to him was going to get another jolt.

(OOC: I think I still have enough points left to keep casting spark jolt for a bit, but if not, let me know.)
