Topic: Titansgrave QnA
Subject: Thoughts

BooBoo - A couple of thoughts on Rhyson. I wouldn't say Rhyson is "extremely talkative" (Not your words in the post exactly, but I want to be clear.) It is more that he is generally open and friendly. He isn't the taciturn sort of adventurer you can find.

Also, don't take the "doesn't like taking orders" bit as "doesn't play well with others." Actually, he works very well with others as a group of equals. If the group decides, he'll follow orders. If the orders are smart, he'll follow them. Just don't expect him to follow orders because they are orders. Or, at least, don't expect him to be happy about it. He is smart enough to still do so when necessary. Most of the time.

As for killing with his magic - yes, he will. However, he isn't really a wild flame thrower. He would recognize in the bandits and vagabonds the outcasts of society and feel a bit of kinship towards. Well, maybe not kinship, but understanding. Killing is not his first choice. But he will if need be and I wouldn't be surprised if you had seen him do so over the last year. But also probably saw him hold his hand.

Nothing is wrong with your post - it can stay as is in regards to the elf. I just wanted to give a slightly fuller description of the wayward fellow

Topic: IRON AGE Game
Subject: What can a Zickerthorn do?

Zick watched as his companions but a dream web over the fog and some dancing lights within it. Now, what should he do?

OOC: Zick's plans are a bit dependent on what else is going on.
1. If the dancing lights outline shadows he will throw a bomb, hoping to hit all three and (If he can tell, he won't worry much about the one who didn't seem to take fire damage) light the web on fire.
2. If he can't see any real targets he will not just randomly chuck a bomb. He will use the wand to cast a heal spell on Savis and load his bow. He will hope someone else can use a conventional means to light the web.
3. Subsequent turns he will use his bombs if he can hit someone cleanly. If not, he will try to use a tanglefoot bag on the monk.

Subject: Temptation

I so badly wanted to have Lothor dispose of the bench by throwing it at the tapestry while saying, "hey guys, watch this!" That phrase always works out so well it would almost be guaranteed to trigger something...

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Well, that was exciting

Lothor looked down at the dust and fragments of skull and shrugged. "Well, that was exciting. I expected that something would happen. Who leaves a skull with glowing eyes just laying around a dungeon if it doesn't do anything? That breaks every rule of adventuring." He watched as Ulthok picked up the gems/eyes and added, "They have to do something Ulthok. It is in the adventuring rulebook. So be careful."

As the group headed out the door the conversation turned to where to go next. Lothor, always warry of what was behind them, kept an eye on the room and the tapestry until they were out. He added to the conversation with, "So it seems the tomb room wins. Anyone want to be a copper on how long the path to get there will take?"

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Map

Ody, I'm not sure what you meant by the "middle hall." Perhaps my mental map is wrong, but I was under the impression that the room we have rested in was sort of like the hub of a wheel with 4 spokes going off in different directions.

One went to the entrance.
One to the tomb room
One to the torture room
One to the fountain - but now to the throne room.

So whatever room we want to go to, we have to go back through that central "hub room" and then back out down another passage.

Tann, could you clarify - am I imagining this correctly?

As for resetting rooms, we really don't know what triggers it. Yes, we did stuff in the torture chamber, but that doesn't mean that was the trigger. It was also just the 4th room we went to. You might get a random room down each corridor for all we know - the throne room showed up the first time we tried to go to a room for the second time.

I'm fine with trying the tomb room again, although if the tombs are still there that is the last room Lothor wants to actually trigger.

Rhyson. Or Rhys for short.

Topic: Iron Age Q/A
Subject: Plans

Well, precise bomb sounds like a good idea, once zick gets another discovery.

For now, we need a plan. That dancing lights spell might be a good idea - I like the idea. Zick will probably load a bomb in his bow. I suspect we want to stay apart a bit - we might have a round or two to plan while they do whatever they are doing. If Savis wants to move over to Zick he could get another dose of healing - we might as well take advantage of the foggy delay. Since Zick knows about where they are in the cloud he could probably probably get close with the bomb, but with only two left I think he wants to hoard them.

Topic: Looking for players.
Subject: Rhsyon is getting there

Rhsyon Ezucarius of House Tandris

After working with Rhyson you have all learned a bit of his history. He isn't closed mouthed about his past and doesn't seem to be keeping secrets. He doesn't shout it to everyone, but those he has worked with know that he left the vicinity of the city of Vorakis because he stepped on the toes of some elite families. He arrived in town in the company of a young couple that found work with a local alchemist. That couple is human (Rhys is an elf) and clearly had something to do with whatever brought Rhys to town. There doesn't seem to be any other connection between Rhys and the couple.

For now Rhys is trying to figure out what to do with his life. He knows some magic (You know he has some skill in the areas of fate, air and lightning.)and wishes to increase those skills. But it is also clear to those he meets that this is a young man who has a problem with authority. He works with others very well most of the time, but does not seem to be a fan of orders - either giving or, especially, receiving them. You get the sense that he wants to "do something," but isn't quite sure what that something is.

As an elf Rhyson is an attractive young man who was clearly raised to have good manners. He has shoulder length golden hair and bright blue eyes. He is well dressed without being fancy. Again, it is clear that he has a knowledge of how the fashionable dress. His clothes and carriage bear the unmistakable signs of class and quality. And yet at the same time his clothes are actually quite simple and basic.

Topic: Iron Age Q/A
Subject: mattia and corners

Q for the DM: Ok, the female who moved around the corner went around to the left. I had thought Zick was a little off to the left - can he see around the corner at all? If not, would he be able to move a little to the left before tossing a bomb? If so, he would move to get a glimpse around the corner and then throw the bomb. If he can hit two he would throw it at those in front, if he can't and he can see and hit the one around the corner, he would do so.

To the group: We need to keep track of baddie #3. Zick might be in the best position to see her, I'm not sure. But if he can hit two, that is the best use of his abilities. Might Mattia want to move that way? Can he move and shoot on the same turn?

Topic: IRON AGE Game
Subject: Two can play the buring game!

Seeing the youthful Savis engulfed in flames quickly erased the smile from Zick's face. His thunderstone had been effective, but he needed to do more. And with Savis out of the way, he could. He grabbed another one of his bombs and tossed it directly at the two that were left. He primary target was the spellcaster, but the monkish hobgoblin should take some splash damage as well.

OOC: As always, Zick looks to use his bombs - always aiming to hit two if possible, with the splash. HeHis #1 target is the spellcasting female, then the male. If that isn't possible because of others in the party being in the way. His second choice would to use his other tanglefoot bag (I think he has two, but it could be 3 - I'll look) on the monk. Using his spear is an act of last resort - if he needs to do so it will be against the spellcaster as he is pretty sure the hobgoblin is out of his league physically.

Subject: anti-climactic

I guess Tann's description was spot on this time. Anti-climactic.

Ok, so the skull is down. Should we try the anti-skrying spell on the eyes? Somehow I doubt that is what is happening, but you never know.

Anyone want to take some sort of whack at the tapestry? Somebody make a post and do something. I'm stumped.

Topic: Looking for players.
Subject: Open office

I may do that.

For now neither restarting nor a scan of the machine did anything. Love/hate these stupid things.

Brief outline of Rhyson - I have more written.

Minor noble from small town near the circles city.
Second son - magical, not the one to inherit.
Sees higher ranking nobles persecuting a guy he works with and his wife - interferes.
One does not mess with those of higher rank (Rhys hates such ideas) and he must leave.
Goes to Thay (Right name?) with the two he rescued. They find work in town at an alchemists and he makes his way to the Pegasus.

Do elves live super long in this world? Also, are elves common in the city controlled by the Circle? Are they different in any way given their lifespan if it is different?

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Stupid little skull, stupid big warrior (?)

(The following post could change based on information from the spell)

Lothor looked at the little skull. He didn't like it. In the torture chamber they had perhaps found a solution by blessing the bones. He wanted such a solution here, but somehow this didn't seem like a time when they wanted to release anything. Might crushing the skull release the creature in the tapestry? Or destroy the gate? Was it spying on them. He just didn't know. But he would break it.

He was tempted to use his sword, but was worried about whatever power might be released. Instead he picked up one of the benches nearby. (Assuming hill giant strength is enough. I am also assuming that with the bench he can hit the skull without going onto the dais.) Holding the bench he spoke up. "Unless someone says not to, I'm going crush that skull with this bench. Speak now or forever hold your peace."

(Assuming nobody speaks up - if they do, he stops.)
So saying, the big warrior held the bench by one end and brought it crashing down on the skull sitting on the throne. "Cowabunga!"

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Change of plans

If you want me to change the post, let me know. But Lothor is going to do something.

I was going to try burning the tapestry, but want to stay farther away - I still think someone with fire at a distance should do so. (Or does it seem like the thing might like fire? The creature seems more Salamander like than anything else.) So Lothor will crush the skull. I'd say we do both. Or tell me to change the post.

Topic: Dark Sun Game
Subject: Zombies, zombies everywhere

Trossach was worried about the elf that had been bitten. Did that transfer some form of contagion? And how quickly? They would have to keep an eye on that.

But in the meantime it seemed that some of the zombies might be headed up the hill towards Morrigu and himself. Morrigu the mage . . . in the midst of combat the detail registered, but he chose to simply file it away in the back of his head for later processing. She was a wild card in so many ways already, what would spells add to it?

Forget about it for now, he said to himself and grabbed another arrow. He would target the zombies headed his way. It seemed likely that each would take multiple arrows, so he would need to start now, always aiming at the one closest. If needed, he could switch to his trusty maul or the skyhammer. But for now it was all about arrows.

Topic: Iron Age Q/A
Subject: Plans

I think Savis should retreat - towards Zick so he can heal him. That way he can get healed without forcing Zick to run forward. The monkish hobgoblin will likely follow, but that can't be helped. Zick is also near last in initiative, so your move comes first. If you choose to run towards Angel for healing, Zick would throw a bomb.

Subject: Grrrrrrrrr

Sometimes I hate computers.

My old laptop has been having trouble. So I bought a new one. But since I don't have office on it yet, I needed to create the character on the old laptop so that I could save a copy easily in Word. But as soon as I tried to open the internet to post the information the computer flipped out. It is currently restarting and I'll see what I can make work. So another delay.

But I want you to know that I do have a start on the character.

Rhyson Ezuricai of House Tandris - and elf mage originally from a small outlying community near Valkris.

Details to follow as soon as possible.

Topic: Iron Age Q/A
Subject: Healing, bombs and other stuff

Ok, Nimu, you let me know what you want to do. If you feel like you have better stuff to do, I can heal. If not, you do it.

A note to the group: We will want to think about combat in the future. Having Savis close for melee combat is nice in that it puts a meat shield between the rest of us and the badguys, but it does take away Zick's best weapon - his bombs. The will splash. He can probably throw it in a way that misses such targets a lot, but not all the time. Right now, I'm not sure he can. He does have other options, but actually using a traditional weapon is not his first, or even a very good, choice. I'm not saying not to do so, but it is a tactic we need to keep in mind.

Q for the DM: Are either of the baddies we can see far enough from the Puppy that Zick could hit them with a bomb without hurting his ally?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Options

Well, we need to do something. I'll want to post something for Lothor sometime tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon.

I have no idea off the top of my head what Lothor's wisdom is, but he is a man of action. Hopefully not stupid and misguided action, but action none the less. So he would do something.

But what? If let to him he would either chuck something at the tapestry or try to move/crush the skull. The thing is, I think the best (??) choice might be to destroy one of the items. Lothor could throw an axe at the tapestry, but that wouldn't destroy it, I suspect. He could smash the skull with a bench. (Avoiding using his sword which he kinda likes in case there are side effects - a problem with throwing the axe at the tapestry as well.) I would be inclined to want a fire spell on the tapestry - probably something simple like flaming hands or such. Low level, but doing something. But Lothor can't do that.

I have a couple of ways to heal.

The wand - I would stay at max range for safety. Not sure what that is.
Potion - I can toss him a potion. Would that take my whole action?

But yes, I would move to keep the Pup alive.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: So, not much new

We have a bone throne, a lizard skull, and a tapestry.

Any ideas? I'd assume (Always safe) that smashing the skull doesn't kill the critter in the tapestry, but probably summons it. Destroying the tapestry? Sitting on the throne? Toss something onto the throne? Destroy the throne? Roll up the tapestry? (How is it hung?) Put the skull in a magical bag (holding?) for safe keeping - which means picking it up, of course. Move the skull gently. Try to move the throne? Pull one of its teeth? Dispel magic on one of the items? An animate spell on the skull, if we have one? Surround the throne (or dais) with some kind of spell (wall of . . . ?) before moving or destroying anything. Poke out the eyes on the tapestry or skull.

I'm just trying to brainstorm. Not coming up with much.
