Topic: Bring Me That Horizon Q&A
Subject: Keep her afloat!

This is a unique game - I've never done anything even remotely piratey. I'd hate to see it die. I vote for keeping this ship afloat!

One Eyed Willy would never give up so easily!

I seem to remember some boots in the bag. barefoot doesn't seem like a great idea. And here I was thinking about springing and striding at a beholder!

Did Ody just write "Chicago?" Against Green Bay? You mean the Bears, right? Not the young bears, the Cubs? You actually picked Chicago?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Wall of Force

Is a wall of force visible? If one was cast in front of a beholder, would they know it? Tann was very clear when describing the demise of poor Peri that it's attacks were area of effect spells. If it wasn't visible, and it did launch attacks, would they rebound back on it?

Is there anything else that could act like a spell mirror?

Also, does each beholder eye roll initiative separately? I ask because if it does might that mean that one eye casts a spell at the wall, but the other eyes, acting at slightly different times, see the result and halt their attacks. But if they all swing at once . . .

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: One at a time

One at a time sounds great. But how do we do that? Is there a way to lure them? But that might bring multiples.

Do we sneak through the halls and use mirrors to look around corners? (Or is there another way - say an invisible familiar?) If we see multiples we run quietly, if we see one we attack? Any other ideas? Do we just lurk somewhere where there are corners or a narrow approach? Am I right in thinking that if they were lined up the back ones couldn't use an area effect spell without hitting the ones in front? (Although I'm not sure the freeze ray would affect them. Maybe.)

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Plans

We probably can't make solid plans, especially for healing, before Tann gives us results. But I think we should still be brainstorming possibilities for dealing with the beholders. We tend to be slow and the more discussion we can get going the better. If we have to throw out some plans because something went rusty on us, oh well. But for now I think putting out all the ideas we can to get things rolling is a good idea.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Healing

Lothor also has some Keoghton's Ointment - which is a healing salve, I believe.

And I think I gave Talca one minor healing spell. Should we use such spells before using up the one-shot potions?

As for dealing with the beholders, do we have any ideas for how to do that?

*I'm not sure what was meant by a "veil." ??
*They seem to really like cold, could we lure them somewhere?
*Lothor does have 4 doses of a potion that could turn something it is thrown on into stone - but they get a saving throw, which I have a hard time believing a beholder wouldn't make. He has a whip that does the same, but that requires some proximity. Otherwise it is blades.
*Should we be setting up sentries at the cross roads while we heal?
*It is probably good that this beholder didn't have an anti-magic central eye, but don't be too confident that they are all the same, at least until we meet #2.
*The room with the pool in it was probably the biggest room we know about - does it make sense to go somewhere where we can spread out so as to not all be hit by everything at once? Such an action might also lead to multiple beholders at once and be a really bad idea.
*What would lure a clown beholder? Do we want to do so? Is our best path to try to take them all down or to try and slip through without fighting them all? Is that even possible?
*Might fire (or that wall of force?) trap them?
*Eyes known so far: Uber-cold, rust, and was it ice shards? That leaves a lot of other options. Is it reasonable to guess that fire isn't among them? Or not? Or anti-magic?

Tann - have we found any other rooms as big, or close to as big, as the one with the pool? Anything big enough to spread out and surround something?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Ouch, but at least it is down.

Tann - I'm sure you considered this, but gotta ask . . . Peri specifically hid behind Lothor, so would that have protected her from the mouth shard blast? Not the concussion, I suspect.

Tann - Another question. With this thing dead, do we begin to notice any change in temperature?

Lothor has potions of healing - in addition to identifying all of our healing spells, we need to decide if we are going to hide out and rest or simply keep moving.

Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver Q&A
Subject: Ok then

Well, that is too bad.
I just went ahead and posted his next roll - quite a bad one. Since we know the results and right now Dane is the only one who can post, there didn't seem to be a need to wait.
Time for the ranger to return the favor to the buggy.

Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver
Subject: This is not going according to plan

After seeing his previous attack after having been so sure he had swung true, Dane quickly spun around to try again. they had to take this thing down!

And . . . missed.
It wasn't even close this time.
He couldn't even whine about surprise armor or anything.
This was just incompetence.

(Rolled an 8. Wouldn't hit a goblin kid with that. Go Ranger!!)

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Talca

Posted for Talca - an arrow instead of call lightning. It seemed the best choice. Also, I chose to have him just shoot and not yet notice Sirene's choice of spell. Apparently it is something he might have thoughts on and I don't know anything about it. Plus, it seems like the kind of interaction Eol should handle himself.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Talca draws his bow in the new/old millenium

Talca saw the thing that had killed him appear in the hall. However long had he had been frozen to the wall, this thing had laid in wait in these halls. And it looked as bizarre and terrible as ever.

He felt the blast of the beast's cold hit him, just as it had so many years before. But this time he was not stuck to a wall and he did not succumb. This time he was not alone. Those who had found him, his new companions and hopefully friends, had a magic that foiled the beast's cold. Still, he felt it in his bones. And his bones remembered that cold.

He would not let the creature defeat him again! This time he would have a chance to return fire. Even as he saw Sirene next to him raise her hand and speak words of power, he grabbed an arrow from his quiver and in one smooth, practiced motion, drew his bow, aimed and fired at the evil beast's central eye. Let it feel his sting this time!

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: A bit more traditional

Lothor moved to the right side of the hall - to spread out the party a bit. He gripped his hand axe of hurling and flung it with all of his might at the beasts central eye. Even such creatures as this were vulnerable to good old steel. Let it feel the bite of his axe. And then the axe would return to him to be thrown again.

If the beast advanced, perhaps he would use his blade, but for now, he wanted to give the casters their space.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Manuevering in a hallway

It seems the best shot is simply to attack the thing. Then maybe afterwards do the wall of force thing. Maybe? It would be great to move around it a bit, but I don't think we can in a hallway that is only 15' wide. Any other great plans?

It seems to like cold - it might just be the one clown head, but the whole place is super cold, so clearly it doesn't mind these temperatures. Might fire be an option? I don't think Lothor can do much besides throw a couple of hand axes. Anything else would require a charge and make him vulnerable to the parties spells. Talca will use his bow, I suspect.

* a 15' wide hallway and it is 35' away - will that fireball hit us as well?

Tann - how high is the hallway?

Topic: The Lost Mine of Phandelver
Subject: Now that felt good!

Dane ducked as the big beast swung its club around. Just the breeze that thing created could knock a guy over! He did not want to let that thing swing again!

He thought he had done so well.
But no.
At last fate came in and swatted his blade aside.
It was unfair. He'd never been told the bugbear had armor in that exact spot.
But so it was.
Instead of his shish kabobbing the beast, instead it had clobbered the ranger.
He leaped back to the attack.

(OOC: Dane rolled a 13, with +2 proficiency it is a 15. Damage - 1d6 = 6. Much better rolls than last time!)

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Anti-magic

Well, assuming this is a real beholder at least in the sense of its main eye, which isn't certain . . .

The usual description, and the one Ody posted, says spells will in its area of effect or passing through it will "cease to function." In my mind this wording implies old spells would also be affected, not just new ones. Also, I don't think it mentions saving throws as if it 'just happens.' So I'm not sure if the wall of whatever would get a save or not.

I do think that we want to time the wall so that it is the last thing up, if possible.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Warriors

I agree with Ody - I think we need to make sure that the wall of force is not in place when we attack - maybe afterwards.

Lothor will almost certainly throw his handaxes. He wouldn't want to charge and be too close for area effect spells or the wall.

Talca - presumably would use his bow. Also, if a wall of force were applied, could it be done as a cylinder and not a sphere? This would mean it is open at the top - although the ceiling of the tunnel would prevent movement there. I ask because Talca does have Call Lightning which I think could flash down from straight overhead. A nice start to things, but it only does 3d6 so unless someone else has a top down strike possible it might not do us much good.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: The joker as a beholder?

Well, that looks like fun.

Ok, so two questions basedon the post already up.

1. What does wall of force do and does it prevent Lothor from hitting the thing?
2. Normal beholders have a central eye that simply dispels all magic? If this thing does as well, wouldn't that disrupt the wall of force?

Tann - maybe I missed it, but how far away is this thing?
