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.

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?

Should we try tossing something into the water? An easy move to get more info.

Did any shards from the shattered crystal fall in the water? To what effect?

Lothor is still here and hoping to smash a castle. He's just waiting on the wiser spell casters.

Subject: Great Opportunity!

It is a great game and a great chance to beat up some gobbers! I'd join myself, but I'm already in the game!

Topic: The Gobber King- QnA
Subject: Gobbers, mages and ambushes, oh my!

Hopefully a Mage is found quickly.

With gobbers coming up behind I would think we shift back to the wagons and let them think theyhave trapped us. Coming through the bushes is perfect for entangle, depending on how spread out they are. Which side will the spell be cast on? Bou would be inclined to use the wagons for a little cover and sling stones towards the unentangled from there.

Topic: The Gobber King- QnA
Subject: Problem? I don't see no stinkin' problem!

Goblins? But these are Gobbers. Much different. I have it on authority from a GM I know.

Plus these gobbers can't shoot you in the back, they don't have bows. Well, the ones we have seen don't have bows.

I'm sure Alacrity wouldn't do anything sneaky to us . . .

Is it possible to make use of the entangle idea while they approach the wagons?

Topic: The Gobber King- QnA
Subject: Entangle

Gotta admit, the entangle plan sounds like a good one.

We should probably pick between the two quickly so things can keep moving.
Can we do the same basic plan, but instead of luring them to the carts, lure them into the bramble? Bou could even speak goblinkind to try and lure them into the bramble if that seemed best.

Do we need to lure them off of the path for the entangle spell to work?

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: A bit gruesome and a bit beyond my skills

Lothor looked into the gem room with everyone else. The gem drew his eyes for a moment, but quickly turned away to survey the room. He glanced at the bloody mess of body parts splashed around the room to see if he could tell if Ulthok's tormentor was among them, but without none of the parts seemed big enough to give up their secrets, at least not from a distance.

He spoke briefly. "This is beyond me. The gem I leave to those whose skills offer some chance of success. While you work, I will watch the hall we entered from. I think a quick search for another entrance might be worth our time."

So saying, the big warrior positioned himself to the side of the entry and kept watch the way they had come.

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: No quick shot

As the captain shouted a warning to the approaching figures, Corban held his position with his rifle.

He spoke quietly enough for the nearby captain to hear him, but not loudly enough to cover any response from the presumed zombies. "Just holding the scope on them for better vision. No shooting captain."

So saying, he carefully watched the approaching figures through his scope to see if they reacted to the captain's message of peace, love and kindness.

I hate to lose my shot at playing the sorcerer Sirion, but these things happen. Best of luck on getting life in order.

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: Weird War Z Begins

Corban peered through his scope at the approaching . . . zombies. No, it didn’t surprise him. After his last few trips into the darkness with Ye Olde not much surprised him anymore. He was a bit surprised that they didn’t even give him the willies. Getting used to the weirdness. Was that a good thing?

Keeping his vision focused through his scope he spoke, “Captain. The Lieutenant spoke about head trauma being the way to handle zombies. I hate to make noise, but would this be a good time to test out that theory? I’d like to know if one well-placed shot to the noggin’ qualifies as enough trauma. From the look of ‘em, I doubt any of them are likely to make use of weapons, but since the Germans are carrying side-arms, I’ll target those first. Just give the order.”

So saying the sniper calmly kept his focus on the approaching figures. He was ready to fire, but would hold until given orders.

Subject: Question

Well, Lothor has a big sword he can whack it with. Somehow this thing seems a bit out of his wheelhouse.

A question for those who have seen this quest from the beginning - are we worried about what the castle will land on if we bring it down? (Avengers assembled - had a bit of a similar problem in the new movie)

Would the ring of regeneration have taken care of all of Lothor's injuries. I think he was hit with a heal spell anyway, but let me know if he is not up to speed.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Shattering winds

Lothor thought a shatter spell sounded like it might work, but also like it might sends ice shards flying their way. Trust magic to be a double edged sword. He grinned a bit as he ran his hand along the large double edged blade of his own sword. Lots of things had two edges.

He hoped the idea of a gust of wind would help preserve them from any flying ice. It was a good idea. Still, he turned away from the ice as the spell was being cast - best to let his backpack absorb the brunt of the ice while he protected his face. Still, he knew something nasty might be trapped in the ice and released when it shattered. Hopefully it would be flayed by the shards, but if not, Lothor fully intended to turn as soon as the ice had shattered and be ready for anything that came from the ice. Until that time he would watch their backs while presenting his to the ice.

Topic: The Gobber King
Subject: A Plan!

Bou listened as Crow described the situation with the Gobbers. He liked what he heard. The ranger clearly had the courage to scout ahead and the wits to look for the key information. And the others in the group of guards all immediately stood ready to take action. The combat hadn't started yet, but so far there was much to like in the small group.

Bou didn't say anything directly, as he had already asked his question and generally felt that the real fighters were best suited to plan the attack. He was a little surprised that Crow's plan called for bringing the enemy to them - and giving up their presence. But, he had to admit, it seemed like a good plan. So instead he just shook his head to indicate that he had no more questions or suggestions and pulled out his sling and nodded to indicate his readiness to do his part. He wanted these others to know they could rely on him just as he needed to be confident in them.
