Subject: Arrow & Rage


Amriel will still go with shooting an Arrow at the Best Target for Killing a Goblin and then securing her bow behind her back, pulling her 2 silver bladed axes and entering the fray with her Berserker Rage!

Would probably be to fire one arrow at a goblin and then sling her bow across her back and take out her 2 silver axes and move in for her Berserker Rage!

Well the reason I asked for full Hit Point restoration was so she could berserk, so would you rather she fires arrows or probably revert to character and grab her two silver axes and go Berserker ?????

How much ground does Guh have to cover to launch into a Berserker Rage in the midst of the Goblins ???

I assume that she is firing arrows in the second installment of Initiatives ?????

Subject: So What About Mylos ?????


Mylos can either participate in the Rain Dance or the Paladin can lay hands on him!

I will wait and see what Brundel decides to do and if he has not posted by the time I do an UpDate (not sure if I will be able to do one while out of town!) then I will just NPC him in the UpDate!

Salvator has not posted in a while, either in Treasure Seekers (page 1/5-29-13) or in Treasure Seekers QnA (page 5/5-27-13).

His last post in A Single Stone... (page 3/6-9-13) and A Single Stone... Q/A (page 6/6-3-13) makes me think he has either dropped out, or real life has thrown him a curve!

Anyway, I will be NPCing his character until we get back to the Toothless Dragon Tavern (and maybe beyond that for the foreseeable future!)

Not sure when you would have it available, as the cost is way more than I was going to alot you when you return to the Toothless Dragon Tavern!

I will be leaving Thursday to go out of town and will be back sometime Monday, so not sure if I will have anything written while I am gone?

I do have a new Map, but we are a bit of a way away from when it will need posting!

What I do need to know is which injured characters are participating in the Rain Dance?

Not sure if I will have internet access where I am going, but am taking my laptop so I can at least type a bit of the next UpDate (as long as I have the free time to do so!)

You would have to get a Tome that increases Dexterity!

Actually, without revealing any secrets, those who survive and make it back to the Toothless Dragon Tavern will have the opportunity to gear up (besides leveling up to 2nd Level when you return!) and there will be plenty of choices, since there is no telling how long it will take you to return after you all decide where to explore after returning from Tagea!

Topic: Nomachron: Blood Moon Rising
Subject: No Ham, Just Goblins


Every now and then Guh-Amriel would stray from their group, seemingly on the hunt for wild boar to fulfil a promise to the halfling Tasso.

Of course the problem with this course lay in the fact that though the barbarian was skilled in both bow and spear, axe and knife, she was not among the finer trackers of her tribe, or among anyone for that matter. Her loud approach to almost everything did little to allow her any element of surprise, and she could not decipher boar tracks from the myriad of other prints and indentations along the route they travelled. Once the proud half elven warrior thought she had definitely found her quarry, only to trounce through the brush like a thundering army of one, to come across the already slain carcass of a small antelope looking beast, it's body already having provided sustenance to something higher up on the food chain, as it had recently been gorged upon by some other feral beast or beasts.

With the sun cresting the overhead veil and Guh Amriel returned to the party after shouts and screams of frustration finally allowed the others to find her amongst the tall grass. It would seem they would be going without their ham this day, much to the dismay of all,


Guh-Amriel was frustrated, her tracking skills were sorely lacking; while her shouts and screams were more from the realization that her inability to find any trace of wild boar, was in fact, the similar reason in many ways as to why she had not yet found any trace of her brother, Guh-Amrior!

She kept dwelling on the sight of the bloody carcass of the ravaged antelope, keeping a constant reminder that unseen predators were constantly on the prowl, even if the young Barbarian lacked the capacity to silently find them!

Thoughts of her father trying to teach her these things flashed back to her mind with grim amusement, but it was always her brother who paid attention to the ways of tracking and other such things that their father had seemingly failed to impart to his younger daughter.

It was always about the fighting and the rage!

At least her father had taught her well enough with the bow and arrows!

Plus, the worship of Tanil and the ever present inner drive to seek freedom, not only for herself, but for others she encountered along the path of life!

It was then that she heard the scream of the woman!

It would seem as though you have come across a small goblin encampment. Though its inhabitants do not seem to have yet seen you at your distance of roughly four hundred feet. You can clearly see them milling about the area. Most noticeable however would be remnants of a ransacked wagon, its canvas top shredded and one large wheel obviously shattered. Though more intricate details could not be made out from this distance, clear sight was not required for the party to hear the shrill scream of a woman desperate for her life coming from the area. The goblins around cheered at her terror, and more circled closer to the wagon, as others continued to stoke the fire preparing for an afternoon roast.

Charging around like a bull in a china shop in quest for wild boar to supply ham for her companions was one thing, but the young Barbarian had learned long ago that such actions were ill advised in situations such as these!

She adjusted her quiver of arrows, after selecting a proper shaft, notching it to her bow string, as she searched the faces of her companions, having learned months ago that it was best to listen for a battle plan from the other members of The Crimson Blades, rather than charge off into battle on her own!

Then she spat on the ground, growling in broken Common to no one in particular:

"Goblins Must Die!"

Topic: Treasure Seekers QnA
Subject: Rain Dance Frequency


It is not like popping a Good Berry in your mouth or having a Cure Light Wounds Spell cast over you or being washed with water and bandaging your wounds!

Rain Dance is a Ceremony that cannot be interrupted, so you want to get it done when everything is relatively peaceful and no threat of battle!

No hourly limit or daily limit or weekly limit, just that the wounded must freely participate in the Rain Dance ceremony, which does not mean that your character is abandoning his or her deity!

However, that is where the Role Play comes in, it is available, but if the Paladin for example feels like he is compromising his faith, then he might not choose to participate and would need healing from some other Spell, and the Shaman also gets a +5 boost from Atira every time he casts a healing spell, so there you go!

[So even if a 1 is rolled for the Cure Light Wounds and only 1 Hit Point is restored, +5 more is added to the healing of Hit Points for a total minimum of 6 Hit Points restored by the Healing Spell of Cure Light Wounds!]

Just like the Eye Patches, where some of the characters put them on and some did not put them on!

Your choice if your character participates in the Rain Dance ceremony, or relies upon some other form of healing!

Remember: Casters have a certain set number of Spells that they may only cast Once per Day!

So out of 4 Spells, they do not get to cast one of those 2 or more times a day, they only get to cast them once per day, so they have to choose their casting wisely!

Subject: Okay


From what I read, looks like Tek is itching to proceed with another UpDate!

So I just started writing my post and came up with a strategy for my character that I went ahead and posted, instead of drawing things out here in the Q/A

Posted on 2013-06-23 at 02:03:29.

Topic: A Single Stone...
Subject: Rescue Strategy


Deysor Twenty-Fourth, 1121
One Hour South of Graffton, Irvala Province
Brandost
Viewing the Captives
Morning


It didn’t take long to spot the captives, the forms of three bodies bound and gagged, tucked away into the shadow offered by the sheer side of the hill. Blood stained the ground all around the base of the slope, but no corpses were evident. Aside from looks of terror on the face of a young girl, they appeared unhurt. But it was her wide eyes and tear streaked cheeks that drew instant emotion from Ellice, who grabbed Desrik’s forearm, being the nearest to her, and squeezed tightly.

Adelror could feel her emotional pain and quickly formulated a plan to best utilize his abilities, with the rescue and safety of the captives foremost in the Cleric's thinking!

First, he went over to Elberon, pulled out the stones in his hand and blessed them, to provide the Wizard with 3 more potent missiles to use in his sling, when it was time for battle!

Thankfully Adelror came to him and he was distracted from his self-pitying. In his hand, Elberon noticed, were three large stones. When the Duskarn reached Elberon the cleric cast a spell upon the three rocks and handed them to Elberon.

“I am afraid Adelror that I may not be best suited to carry these, I have never even used a sling before I have only read the instructions to use such a weapon. I will however try my best, Thank you.”


Adelror nodded, for he had seen such a look in an untested warrior's face before. He had also heard the uncertainty in the voice of an untested warrior, before going into his or her first battle!

"Have No Fear!

"Yer Heart Will Give Ye Courage!

"Ye Be Not Alone!

"Ah Dell Roar Be Confident In Yer Ability!"


The Duskarn Cleric of Dareen gave Elberon a friendly slap against the Wizard's left arm with his now empty right hand, then turned his attention to Bailox, Desrik and Ellice.

He stood before the trio, explaining what must be done, at least from his own experience from rescuing slave captives from the Orc Breeding Pens!

As quickly and as simply as he could explain, he shared his plan that he would accompany Ellice to help free the captives. He would give her the knife from his left boot, so she could cut the ropes that had the captives bound.

Besides, it would be best for the traumatized captives to see a familiar face, which may or may not prevent them from crying out in relieved surprise, alerting their captives.

He could also tell that Ellice probably had no intention of staying behind, so he may as well provide her with something useful to do!

Adelror pointed to his 2 Throwing Axes, also explaining that they could be given to one or more of the captives, to help defend themselves, once they were free!

Adelror would brandish his Long Sword, protecting them as they made their escape!

He would make sure on the strength of his blade and the life of his own blood, that no captor would be able to harm another innocent ever again!

Satisfied that they understood his plan, he then approached the Druid Ja'aron to share his plan, while thinking to himself from past experience:

Always good to know who you are going into battle with for the first time! Especially if they have a better plan!

Ha Ha Ody

Did not mean to spoil anything!

Those other Healing Spells and the Pali Laying on of Hands are good for in the heat of battle, in case the Seekers are pinned down somewhere in the future someplace!

Rain Dance only effective when things are All Clear!

Like Now!

Not trying to get everyone to do the Rain Dance, just pointing it out that it is there!

Probably best to get everyone involved in some way, as you are inexperienced, but now have a battle under your belts as teammates!

Just decide who is healing who and in what manner!

Will allow some time for your decisions and Role Play in the Game Thread, so we know who I will be NPCing for the next UpDate?

Subject: Combat Turn 1 Round 5


Jaufre was determined to do his best to eliminate the undead menace (S11) that sought to take his life!

His body hurt as he raised his sword arm, but he focused upon the task at hand, forcing himself to swing as hard as he could, but his blade passed harmlessly before the undead Skeleton Pirate!

He tried once more, but his body and blade were no longer a unified weapon, as the wounded skeleton grinned maniacally at the wounded Paladin, untouched by the second swing of his blade!

Mylos, the now wounded Gnome Bard, summoned up some reserve strength for hopefully, one final 'Dagger Dance', as he slashed with his primary weapon, aiming below the right knee cap of the undead skeleton!

His first attempt missed, even as he followed through with his off hand slice, but it too was a miserable failure!

The Gnome Bard continued his dance, following through once again with his primary weapon, this time dispatching his wounded foe in the now familiar cloud of dust and tiny pile of bone fragments!

The Luck of his deity Amber had seen him through the adversity!

Meanwhile, Areldor the Illusionist did not hesitate to move into position behind the undead skeleton (S11) that was seeking to end the life of the courageous Paladin!

With a prayer to Minerva and a mighty swing of his Club, the Illusionist ended the undead threat in a final cloud of dust and tiny pile of bone fragment splinters!

Having survived their first taste of combat, the Seekers gathered together, bonded by the blood shed and the bones broken this day!

Amur was able to recover only 6 of the 12 Sling Stones, the other half dozen expended missiles lost somewhere in the crevices of the rubble; whereas, both Tohmas and Mylos were able to retrieve their lone Arrow and Bolt, intact enough if they were needed for any future battle.

Tohmas, Vincent, Mylos and especially Jaufre were in need of having their wounds tended to and their health restored to full capacity!

But it was the soothing sound of the 'Happy Water' somewhere not far to the north, that now called for their attention; its musical melody carried on a slight breeze, to the battle weary ears of the Seekers!

Note from the Castle Keeper:
