Topic: Slate Q&A Thread
Subject: Take it for what it is

I don't see any indication that the wolf was attacked in any way. He bit someone and their blood ran into his mouth. The wolf is fine. Keep biting.

Also, D&D style games don't typically limit you from doing things if you are injured. If he doesn't say specifically that you can't use a bow, then I'd assume you can. The DM will tell you if the assumption is wrong.

It would be good to get another one in on the game. But even so, I am pleased to be headed out. Unseen assailants in a cave isn't quite what our young archer was hoping for, but he won't be complaining.

Topic: Slate Q&A Thread
Subject: A Pyramid Scheme!

Impulse is buying!

Now, Dax wants to make it perfectly clear that he has no intention of kicking the bucket (On Slate, apparently a very old and not very frequently used bucket, but still a bucket to be kicked.) anytime soon. But things can happen when you have a druid around that occasionally forgets who the home team is.

Normally Daxos would go for a big funeral barge covered with flowers going through the middle of town with a band and all sorts of pomp and circumstance. But barges are a bit awkward these days. So, since he has such a fascination with ruins, he decided on a pyramid. Not one of those little "gnome sized pyramids" either. A real one. Giza style. A big one pointing right up at the clouds that will one day bring back real rain. And he doesn't want to have to share either. Just him. With some neat hieroglyphs of him exploring.

Just so we are clear.

I'm sure you can afford it.

Well, when we all die because we can't move you can pay for the funeral . . .

This is what we get for bringing along an apparently entirely untrained druid of sorts.

But seriously, no worries.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Gryph, ash and teleportation

Lothor listened as Cor listed off their options. It didn't sound like much of a choice. "It doesn't look like we have much choice - I'm not sure walking around is possible. So if the mages will do so, I'd take a ride."

He grimaced a bit as he said the last part. He had grown quite accustomed to the magic users over the last months, but magic was still not his thing. A blade to fight with and the solid ground under his feet - this was what made him comfortable. Still, the thought of being teleported hardly made him blink. Times change it seemed. Or at least old warriors could learn new tricks if the stakes were high enough.

When Cor followed his earlier comments by identifying the bird creatures at the tower, Lothor was pleased. It was always easier to fight an opponent you knew something about. The fewer surprises the better. Still. "Gryph? what else do you know about them? Individually they might not be tough, but anything in numbers can be a problem. Consider the ash we now need to cross. And they are at the tower of the magical cyclops. Don't assume we will be facing only that one opponent."

Subject: Works

That plan works.

I think the distances are more than you are imagining. I don't think there is much chance of the birds seeing us at the beach. The danger is if we (Or even just Sirene) try to fly to the tower. If we teleport across the ash, we still have quite a long jungle hike ahead of us. At least that is my interpretation of things. Tann's comments on the birds were based on flying to the tower to find a landing spot.

Lets get over this ash and get moving.

Topic: Slate: The Hundred Years of Rain
Subject: Dancing before the rain.

This was not the first time Daxos had watched as the rain raced towards him. Nor was it the first time that his arrows had found their mark in living flesh. But he didn't really like either situation much. Especially human flesh. They should be on the same side.

But the fight had begun and there was nothing for it. His first arrow had found its mark. The spellcaster was neutralized. There were two targets still available to him - the man with the ax and the woman with the bow. The others were too far under the shelter and out of his sight. Since the woman was blind, his choice was easy. He grabbed another arrow from his quiver and lined up the shot. The ax wielder would fall just as the spellcaster had.

He hated shooting people. There were so few left . . .

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Questions

Best wishes for your Mom, Tann.

I was actually asking if we could walk around the ash - the current problem.

I was also assuming we would teleport across the ash and walk the rest of the way. What about teleporting part way to the tower so that Sirene doesn't have to go all the way to get the lay of the land, but we don't have to walk it all. Could perhaps have done that and avoided the slaughter . . .

I say mages make the choice and post.

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: Keep your eyes on a rat...

They continued to move further into the temple. Everywhere they went they seemed to find more bodies. More bodies with headshots. The most likely scenario seemed to be that these were either zombies or that the Nazis thought they were zombies. He was assuming that the Nazis were the ones doing the shooting. Was that a fair assumption? Corban wasn't positive, but it seemed like a good working hypothesis. What did it say that in an ancient tomb filled with zombies and melting witches, he was most concerned about some very modern, and probably very well armed, Krauts? It meant the residents of this lovely building were likely having a very bad day.

Corban moved forward with the rest of the group. The new room was odd - well lit up with a generator. He wasn't a mechanic, but glanced briefly at the generator and cables. Were the lights (they were welcome!) the only thing being powered by the thing? Were there other cables leading elsewhere?

When they first entered the room Corban had held his position as rear guard. When nothing seemed to happen and Rat offered to scout ahead to the North, Corban didn't like the idea of sending him off alone. As the Rat moved forward, Corban spoke to the captain. "Chief. I'll cover rat as he moves forward. But that means I'm not watching the back or that other entrance." getting a nod from his CO (Assumption here, correct me if I'm wrong.)Corban moves forward and keeps his fellow Ye Olde group member in his sites.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: Somethimes it stinks to be right

Jarenion was not pleased to be right this time. He had guessed that the prisoner was a medusa the moment they entered the room and now it seemed he was correct. Damn. But "always be prepared" had been the slogan of the elvish scouts when he was a kid many years ago and so he was. Prepared, that is. He pulled out the small mirror he carried with him for just such a situation. You never knew when you'd meet a medusa, right?

He was pleased to see Maximus looking for other exits - there had to be one. Otherwise they had reached a dead end in the tomb and that just didn't make any sense. But he left the search for doors to the big man. He carefully examined the bindings holding the woman - was she really bound? It would not do to have her suddenly remove her helmet.

He was tempted to just kill her as was suggested, but knew that having a witch tied up here calling out to the tombs resident was a mystery that deserved a bit of their time. It might be just to mislead them, or even a trap. Well, it was almost certainly a trap. But why? They needed information.

"Nice helmet Cassandra. Normally one with such fine headgear is not so arrogant." Here he tapped lightly on the pot with his staff - not hard, just enough to feel if there were, indeed, snakes on the other side. If there were moving snakes, he thought he would be able to tell. Nothing in this tomb seemed to be what they expected, so it was worth confirming that this wasn't an illusion. He held up his mirror as he did so. Tapping her on the head might annoy the "lady," but somehow it didn't seem likely to make the trap any worse. "Who gave you such a nice helmet? What are you waiting for? I would think even the legendary Cassandra would have trouble seeing what the future holds when all she can see is the inside of a pot."

The elf wizard stood back to see what effect his words would have, keeping the mirror at the ready. Even as he did so he thought - Gargoyles. Now that makes sense. He would continue to be wary of an attack through the walls, floor or ceiling.

His thoughts on the stone guardians were voiced. "Were those gargoyles your pets or your jailers?"

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: OK

Well, this seems simple enough.

GM: Is there room to walk around? The general impression was that such a plan probably wouldn't work, but I suppose we could see such a thing.

To the group: Assuming the GM says that walking around will not be adequate, then we need to do something. It seems that teleporting is the simplest option. Or at least it seems so to the non-magical warrior. But that requires the mages to post first. Lothor will post something about standing there looking tall, dark and handsome - and, or course, very dangerous and on guard, once the mages have made their choices.

We have been at the beach long enough!

Topic: Final Fantasy d20: Crimson Falcons (take 2)
Subject: Deja Vu all over again?

As Echario le'rouge entered the room and gave his speech, Gelion couldn't shake the sense of Deja vu that had come over him. It had started with the dream last night and now continued all the way through the big man's speech. It just felt like he had heard it before. But how was that possible? Or any more possible than the fact that he recognized the others in this room from last nights dream? And that was a fact.

But such speculations did no good at the moment. He could do nothing about them. Meanwhile, this day remained crucial for his future. Echario seemed to match expectations - both in the positive sense of the leader of a free company and the arrogant sense of a lord. But he was the man in charge. Gelion would simply have to accept this. If what he said was true, he should be a better boss than many. Sure, his political commentary seemed naive, but now wasn't the time to worry about that.

When the man finished his speech and asked if there were any questions there really didn't seem to be much more to do but to get this next adventure in his life under way. And so, as he usually did, Gelion didn't sit around and wait for everyone else to do things, he spoke up. "Thank you sir. for the opportunity to be a part of this company. A Free Company seems to be a great place for those who desire freedom. But we still don't know what our role in this company will be. What sort of tasks will we be asked to do? What choice in the matter do we have as members of the company?" (Indeed, what sort of freedom is their for the members of a supposedly "free company" he thought to himself.) To be blunt, what do we do now?"

As the Moogle leaned forward and said, "What's the job? When do we start?" Gelion couldn't help but smile. he hoped the little one was a good shot, because he had a feeling that personality would charge right into the middle of any problem that came their way. But Gelion liked how they didn't just sit back and wait for things to happen. So he smiled, nodded towards the Moogle, and added, "And yeah, what she said."

Topic: Slate: The Hundred Years of Rain
Subject: The view from on high

Daxos held his position on top of the shelter. He didn't think the other group knew he was there and that could work to his advantage if a fight broke out, which seemed extremely likely. He was happy this group seemed to have some quality fighters in it.

It wasn't hard to spot the enemy spellcaster. That would be his target. He was in no position to take part in any dialogue, so he would have to wait and see what happened. But he was ready to shoot arrows if needed.

Thought I had posted already, but I'm not seeing it.
I'll try to get a post up late tonight or tomorrow.

If that fails for some reason, at the first sign of hostilities, Daxos will shoot his bow at the spellcaster.

Topic: Pathfinder: The Runewen Chronicles
Subject: A good evening winding down

Sirion had enjoyed his evening. He always enjoyed sitting in a tavern's common room talking to the crowd. Well, almost always. Sometimes there were drunken fools who thought they were tough. But it was rare that he didn't find someone interesting to talk to while sitting by the fire. Tonight had been no different. A small group of locals who were constantly amazed by the new folks crowding into their city and a couple of glasses of wine had made for fine companions.

But perhaps the night was done. After tossing water on the fire the sorcerer had been enjoying all evening, the bartender offered one last round. With a smile Sirion shook his head. He didn't need anything more. In a few moments he would gather himself and head up to his room. He wasn't sure what tomorrow would bring, but he supposed he needed to do something.

Subject: Teleport

Is there a reason why teleport isn't an easy answer? We were going to teleport to the island, why not within it? At most the spellcasters need to fly over the ash to know the landing location, right? Or am I missing something? can they teleport all of us? I'm just assuming they can since that was an option to get here.

Topic: Slate Q&A Thread
Subject: if they came begging

Daxos is completely ok with sharing - with those in need who ask first. But demanding at weapon point while beating old men? Or anybody for that matter - not ok. So, no sharing. At least not until they say "please" and hand over their weapons.

That leaves two options:
1. Strike first and strike hard.
2. Mke demands - surrender your weapons. Wait and see how they respond to Clary.

I'm not very keen on striking without talking, but the answer seems pretty obvious. And the rain is coming.

Daxos is on the roof with bow in hand - and planning on sticking an arrow in the one that looks like a spellcaster.

That would work - the rain, I mean. What did he say, 8 inches deep? We'd be very muddy by the time we got there, but it shouldn't be so deep it doesn't work. Or mud to rock would work if the distance was enough. It might be worth a cast or two even if it only got us most of the way as I can just imagine our DM finding a way to turn this into a very unhappy round of mud wrestling.

Topic: Slate Q&A Thread
Subject: Information

Questions for the GM

How are these folks armed? Any bows or other ranged weapons?
How far away were they when they stopped?
Any that look like they might be spellcasters?
How fast or easy would it be for someone to climb onto the shelter? (Essentially, how safe is Dax?)
Are they still in a spot Dax could use his bow on them?

Questions for the group:
Who is going to be the spokesperson? As much as Daxos would love to open his big mouth, the little guy probably isn't the most intimidating, plus his presence might yet be unknown.
This can't go on long as the rain is going to start soon. We could force them to fight their way into the shelter when it rains, but we don't want to leave the cleric out there in it. Nor does Dax wish to remain out in the rain.
Does anyone recognize the cleric? (I'm guessing if Schnozzle hasn't told you so, you don't.)
I'm not normally inclined to jump to a fight, but in this case we might need to do so. They can't come in armed, obviously. We need to get the cleric. We need it all done quickly.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Find the path

I'm not sure there is a good path to use to get there, so I doubt the find path spell would work.

How great of a distance must we travel to get through the ash? I really like the idea of mud to rock for creating a path, but I think we might need a lot of copies of the spell to make it all of the way across.

What about flying over? Can an enlarged Peri move us? If so we could not take off from the shore as a enlarged dragon wings would probably kick up a bit of dust. That would mean getting picked up from the boat - which would probably also mean losing the boat. Unless Lothor was the last to go and he brought the boat to shore and then swam back out to sea (without armor, of course) to get picked up. Not sure about his swimming skills. Can we just teleport across? Did the mages ever get that far inland? Or could they fly across to get familiar with the territory, than come back and teleport others?
