Subject: Squishiness


Well so long as it is pushed slowly it will not move fast enough to knock down anyone complety unawares... so no need to worry about that.

Besides we will assume that the imps have moved further into the vault with their celebrations.

Sound like a deal?

Subject: An Official Ruling


In the recruitment thread it says that anything from the core books (and I did specifically include Monster Manual as an option) was acceptable.

So Wood Elf is acceptable. I will make a slight adjustment to the rules, however, and am going to add a provision that asks for players to note when something does not come from the PHB and say where it came from for easier judgement on such issues.

So... move that die for your new fellow student!

Subject: Consequences...


Steelight finally managed to pull his gaze from the goblin and fixed his burning rage at her. Professor O’Leary never flinched as the fires came across her visage. Her features were still pulled taunt and she simply stared back him. After all she had been through intimidation from a student was simply not going to work. Keeping her eyes locked in his, showing him that she held no fear and reminding him that she was the one in control of this situation, she spoke again.

“Another failed challenge… This is NOT how I expected this year to begin. The failure of one, is the failure of all…” Her eyes moved off of Steelight’s for a moment to scan over her students. “Working together as a team is the only way you will survive when you leave these halls. And it is the responsibility of… every… single… member… to maintain that teamwork.” Her eyes tick over the students one by one as she speaks.

“The only people who have acted properly in this situation are the imps, who have done well in living up to my expectations.” Her eyes soften for but a second as she takes in the small stout frames bustling around trying to clean up after their ‘revolt’. “So not only shall they receive the reward we had negotiated early this morning, but I think I shall also pass the reward I had intended to provide you with when you succeeded at this task.”

The imp who had been apologizing for their failure positively beamed at this. “Harmonious socks!? And… and…”

For the first time since stepping out of the shadows a smile crept onto her face and she nodded. “Yes… ‘harmonious socks’ three pair for each of you… and an amazing feast with a very large turkey as the crowning jewel of it, for a job well done.”

Around the students the imps erupt into celebration. Tiny creatures dancing arm in arm, shouting out in joy, salivating at the thought of a turkey dinner, some even so excited about the new socks they are pulling off their old socks and spinning them over their heads. Merideth smiles at the simply joy she has brought them but then returns her attention to her students and the smile slides from her face, the edge returns to her voice.

“The rest of you… on the other hand… are on kitchen duty for the remainder of the day. The gruel you will be eating for dinner has a nasty habit of sticking to the pots, the bowls, the spoons… the floor when it is spilled. I want the kitchen sparkling clean before dinner… and there is no cheating. Magic cannot be used in there, elbow grease and your tears will clean it.”

“Zeph. You will report to my office, immediately! Leave the wolf and your issues with authority outside…”

“And Steelight… when that spell fades you will do the same. Take the time between now and then to settle your anger, for it will not be acceptable in my office.”

“And someone help Kiiron out from behind that die!” She orders as she turns on her heels and storms off. The female magic user sinks back into the shadows when the Director leaves.

Subject: Silence...


After passing her healing abilities around to those who would let her Thea essentially shut down. Rations were distributed for dinner but, very surprisingly, the tiny red haired girl did not have an appetite and nibbled slightly on the food before passing it on to someone who was not bothered by the scent of gnoll blood on the air. The only words she spoke were to Rose, a whispered plea to sleep near the warrior woman, casting nervous glances at the shadows in the woods and even her fellow travelers between those few words.

Curled up close to Rose, wrapped in the soiled cloak she trembled and cried until exhaustion drug her into the depths of sleep. She woke still feeling tired, despite the fact that she had not held watch as the others had, probably a decent thing for them all, considering. The jar of honey she took from the temple made an appearance with her morning rations.

As the sweet heavy taste of the golden elixir ran over her tongue she closed her eyes and let the others discuss their plans. She was no leader, she was no hero or adventurer either. She just prayed that whatever it was that they decided that it wouldn’t involve more of those hideous creatures. For now though she would seek solace in the honey.

I certianly did not expect this to happen. that it has brought out a flurry of posts though... and hopefully I haven't killed it.

I did not go into details on the injuries sustained by Zeph, I figured you were assuming he got hit with all of your *coughs* and that hopefully this should be ending and it won't matter much. If need be though I can roll up damage and stuff later.

Subject: Out of Control...


Things were out of control. Merideth stood in the shadows, her sharp blue eyes watching as things unfold. Her lips draw into a tight frown.

This has gone far enough…

Stepping out of the shadows and making a gesture with her fingers for the other woman standing in the shadows, the one who had run into the lecture hall announcing the ‘revolt’. As soon as the gesture is made her hands move to her hips and she shouts above the din rising up around her students.

“THIS HAS GONE FAR ENOUGH!” She repeats out loud this time.

“He does not have to listen to reason… he has to listen to ME.”

The woman beside her raises her hand and utters a few words and suddenly Steelight finds himself unable to move.

Merideth drags her eyes to Steelight and stares into his. “Now… are you going to listen to me?”

She does not need to employ her magic user to calm down the imps though. They put down their signs, and shuffle around almost embarrassed looking. One of them mutters “Regrettable of course our the actions…” She pays no attention to the imps apology however.

Subject: Fate!


Steelight runs out of the room the moment that Professor O’Leary hands the problem over to the students. He does not wait around to listen to Darkon’s plans. Sliding down the hallway he stops just short of the mass of imps picketing outside of the vault. Rising up to his full height he scowls at them and then moves to press through the throng.

Very few, however, even seem to notice him, so wrapped up in their shouts and their marching. Instead of clearing a path for him they simple tumble underfoot. Sighing he gives up. Changing his tactic he ducks and maneuvers through the throng with deft skill, cutting a line through them when they would not acquiesce one to him. He rolls into the main room and goes for the far right door. Upon it the words ‘Fate’ has been scrawled. Steelight stretches out his hand and opens the door quickly.

Behind him the other students have followed at a slower pace. Just as they arrive and start to pile through the thin ravine their fellow student cut through the mob. They do not get very far, however. The gigantic twenty-sided dice that crashed out of the door Steelight opened comes crashing into them. In its path Steelight has fallen prone. The surprise of the massive purple object careening out of the darkness at his head threw him off and to the ground. It rolls toward the other students. Ion being first in its path also falls prone, his arm temporarily getting squashed in its tumble. Beside him Zeph gets glanced by its side, crashing to the ground as well as his broken limbs fail to keep him out of danger. Recognizing the danger Briar and Darkon move quickly out of the way, yelling out in surprise and taking two imps back with them. Other imps are not so lucky, however and fall before the die. They finally stop its tumultuous movement just as it comes face to face with Levanna and Kiiron. They are pushed back a step before it fully stops but left standing.

The crowd has stopped its now and stands, in awe as the die settles itself in the hallway.

((Current status:
Steelight – prone with minor injuries near the ‘Fate’ door
Ion & Zeph – prone with minor injuries amongst the imps before the Vault
Briar & Darkon – no injuries, standing in the middle of the mob
Levanna & Kiiron – standing in the hall, before the finally stopped die))

Alright, well so far we have had some potential plans laid out, and Steelight going for the goal. I will be posting up tomorrow afternoon, so if you would like your character to do more than stand in awe watching Steelight finish this alone with your thumb up your *cough* I'd suggest jotting something down for me

Thanks!

But cutting into the action.

What I will need from everyone at this point is your plan. Evaluate the situation and then let me know what you are going to do. If you are going to go for one of the doors I need to know not only how you intend on getting through the protestestors but also what door you are going for.

Have fun!

Subject: The Revolt!


The Armoury
Week 1: Tuesday Morning



The doors of the Armoury, while thrown open, were blocked by a crowd of imps. Their squat forms moved constantly in a throng back and forth before the doors. In their short grubby little fingers they held wooden poles that ended in placards above their squashed little faces:

‘Oppression No Longer!’

‘Harmonized Socks!’

‘Long Respites!’

‘Slumberous Night Conditions’

‘Inaudible Zone!’

‘Butterflies’

‘Qualitative Compensations!’

Read some of them, and the others followed along the same line of chaotic vocabulary terms.

Beyond this group of protestors the foyer to the Armoury, and the disastrous state it was in, could be seen by the group of student adventurers. Billows of steam roiled across the floor carrying damp bits of confetti in their wake. The three doors that led off the foyer were all closed.

Subject: Ela's Move


Peter was down, but she had faith that when someone was down like that the others would swarm in and take their assailant off them quickly enough. When that happened usually the assailant would be covered like a pot honey with ants in the height of summer. There would be no sense in her attempting to weasle an arrow in through all that.

Instead she turned her attentions on the creature attacked Brandr. He already looked wounded and Brandr could use some help.

She pulled an arrow into her bow and steadied her arm as she followed the creature with the point of the arrow, waiting for just the right opportunity and then let the sliver of death fly through the air.

That perhaps you should decide how to handle this imp situation after:

a) you have actually seen what is occuring; and

b) your characters have perhaps run your idea by the Professor to see if it is appropriate...

Also if you are an older student and want a clearer idea on what you would know about previous encounters like this, a PM to the DM is always a good avenue.

Glad to see you are enthused about the whole thing though.

If you have any questions for the Professor I will try to get them answered, and if not (as I said) I will post up a more detailed description come Wednesday of what you will see when you arrive at the Armoury.
