Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: A hot bath here would be kinda like a sauna, but not quite


As Lothor moved down the hallway with the group he found the ice and fog frustrating. Good solid footing was critical when swinging heavy things and he didn’t like the idea of not being able to keep his feet. He considered switching to his throwing hatchets, but stuck to the Demon axe. The hall widened a bit as the moved forward, eventually opening into a large room filled with – well, not really filled with much given its large size. But certainly it was noteworthy. Cold, yet not frozen.

Still, the first thing that caught his attention was the door, or rather the lack of one. Why was the tunnel to a crypt above the only entrance to a giant sized frozen bath that lacked a door. That did seem odd. But then, warm water in these conditions was odd also. And the doors, where they did exist, did not look like they had been opened in a long time. He wondered how long it would take ice to build up like that under these conditions? Ice required more than just cold, it required water – he glanced at the pool. Was it steaming?

He glanced at the others in the group – the pool was the most intriguing place in the room and felt like the obvious place to start. But in this case, he was just going to travel with the source of magical warmth. And so, wherever Sirene led, there the big warrior would go, keeping his eyes open, his feet hopefully steady and his axe in hand. He primarily was trying to keep his eyes open for sudden intruders coming from wherever – or the statues becoming active. Spell investigations were not his role.

Tann: How big was the tunnel we came down? Was it giant sized? Also, the doors - iced over? So it should be obvious from a distance that they have not been opened in awhile? Did you say anything about what was up?

To the group: What is the area of effect of the temp control spell? We need to all stay within that radius as we explore. Should someone try a detect magic spell? I'm betting the pool reacts. Statues are always dangerous. Lothor would start with the pool, then have the group work their way around the doors.

Oh, and sorry for the bumpy ride down the stairs. Lothor was just eager to get down. He remembers days of sliding as a kid at the local hill. Ah, good times, reenacted in some cyclops' bathhouse.

Topic: Dark Sun Game
Subject: Let us descend to the ground floor


Trossach looked around the guard room - it had once been the TOP of a garrison of some sort? That seemed odd, but in these lands it didn't seem impossible. Eventually even this room would probably be consumed by the dark land. Hopefully not while they were in it.

He admired the newly shiny weapons on the floor, ignoring for the moment the magic that had polished them. There was a fortune on the floor in front of him. He liked his maul, it had always felt good in his hands, but metal made for a weapon of great power. Maul or not, he didn't think he could pass this up. So he reached down and grabbed a great axe and tested its heft. "I think this great axe should do very well. I shall replace my weapons with fine steel. And steel tipped arrows - those will work as well."

He leaned his well used maul against the wall - it was probably a lot to carry if he wasn't planning on using it. The big Mul also grabbed a big sword to have as a backup and filled his quiver with 20 steel tipped arrows unless there weren't enough or someone else also wanted some. Once finished he looked at the others and spoke again. "We probably can't take everything with us now, but we will want to come back this way to reclaim any weapons we can't carry now. I don't wish to leave my trusty maul behind forever. For now, let us head down the stairs. unless someone objects, Ochit, lead on."

(Leveling up info should be coming in a message within 30 minutes.)

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Because going down into a crypt is always a good idea


Lothor approached the crypt that held the passage to the arctic and looked carefully at the damage caused to the door. He wasn’t overly worried about moving the broken door given his hill giant strength and Ulthok’s ogre strength, but he did want to avoid breaking it. It might be handy to be able to shut the thing again – either to block passage or simply to shut out the cold. Was there still intense cold coming through the cracks? How would it move to open? Before doing anything he inspected how the door ought to have opened.

The goal was simple – open it without breaking it. Do so cautiously so nothing attacked him as he did so and try to make sure that the door didn’t slam shut on them while they were down “there” – wherever “there” turned out to be. But try to make sure it was closable. And don’t freeze while doing it. Or die. That was always a key goal.

He waited until a spell caster had been kind enough to give him some magical protection from the cold and then he and Ulthok approached the crypt. “Please make sure nothing nasty comes out of this thing while we open it” he said to the rest, knowing they were all already taking positions to do so. “Cor, could you grab a piece of that door – depending on how this opens we made need to put some sort of prop in to hold it open so it doesn’t slam shut on us when we are under it.” In addition to the spell, he wrapped himself in his bedroll, turned winter coat and made sure his hands were well covered. Then he and Ulthok moved to open the door.

(OOC: If there is no cold coming from the gap in the door he would probably do the same thing. If the door is still on hinges he will see if they are intact enough to hold it open. If it is removable it would depend on how big it is – if it can be moved ½ off and people could still get down (and up) he would leave it half on. More likely he would take it off entirely and gently lean it against the sides of the crypt.)

I'll get a post up in the next day or two at most. I owe a little level up info and then it is time to pick a weapon and move. Down the stairs is how Trossach will vote. Already has, I think.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Interesting


Well, I had been wondering about not sensing evil with that spell. And no, I had not noticed that the door was broken.

Tann - I am curious - if the door is open a crack, do we still notice intense cold coming from the gap?

To the crew - I guess it seems that we are now going to have to open the door manually. It will presumably be harder to close this time. We may want to be careful to not drop and shatter it. Lothor's hill giant strength should make this doable, so it is probably time to muscle up unless someone else has ideas. And he does need help balancing it. It can either be leaned on the side or we can only open it part way. Maybe. I'll wait to hear a bit more before I post.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: See what happens when you don't crush those gems???


As the flames from the spell danced in front of him, Lothor felt a sense of relief as the tomb slammed shut in front of the party, taking its horrific cold with it. He still wasn't a huge fan of magic, but when it was used on his side of things it was certainly useful.

Having heard Ulthok suggest staying in the room to rest, Lothor considered raising an objection. Of all the rooms in this tower, this one with its powerful evil magic emanating from the tombs was the last place he would choose to stay and rest. It was also the only room that had not changed when they returned to it and he doubted it was going to go anywhere. The central crossroads room had proven a safe and useful rest location already and he preferred the idea of going back there. But was it worth another argument? Probably not. Even if he doubted this choice, he trusted the halfling's judgement overall and nothing would be gained by arguing over every detail. He could stay here if he needed to do so.

He pulled out his Axe of Demon's Fire and spoke briefly to the group. "I'd love a little healing when someone gets the chance. While others work on spells, I'll stand watch by the door. Whatever that cold is I still suspect undead of some type in that crypt if that affects choices at all. And while nothing has shown any inclination to come out of the crypts yet, I wouldn't mind someone else keeping an eye on the tombs while I watch the hallway. Plus the salamander is out there still as well, so as many spare eyes as possible would be good. When I get a break from guard duty I'll try to sew my bedrool into a thicker cloak, but I have to be able to swing to be of much use." He then moved to the doorway to take up his post realizing that what he considered "speaking briefly" seemed to have changed a bit. He was in danger of becoming long winded. Maybe that was what became of a person who hung out with mages?

And so the big warrior stood at the doorway trying to look every direction at once while pondering lengthy speeches, frigid undead and stupid blinking salamanders. And the sudden appearances of lost companions - he hadn't quite gotten over that one yet.

Subject: Plans


Well, we need time to cast heal spells and get new spells, so time for sewing exists. Lothor doesn't have much of particular use, but he does have the typical cloak and bedroll. He will wrap up a bit in those, but doesn't want to be too badly hindered to fight.

He will carry his battle axe of demon's fire when he heads down the stairs - I still think it is likely that there will be nasty undead down there. And a tombs deep chill might be considered natural by some.
