Subject: Happy Waters???????


Crow lead the way as he and Tohmas search to find the source of the water sounds. Before long the ranger indicated the sound was under ground. Tohmas placed his ear to the ground and he too heard the rush and fall of water. “This why we do not see the benefit of the waters, it is hidden away. If we ere to find it the way would have been shown.” At that they heard Mylos let out a scream.

Rushing to his aid they saw the Gnome pull his hand from a cleft in the stone to reveal a gold coin. The party gathered and search the rubble, soon more coins were found. As they cleared the debris Tohmas notice that it appeared to be steps leading down toward the sound of the waters.

( using some of the Q&A info from Hammer.)

Stepping forward the Cleric motioned and suddenly the stone blew away revealing passage going down. As the dust settled more coins were on the stairs and soon each of the party had at least one of the coins. Peering into the dark of the passage Tohmas said, “I’ll gather materials to make torches, you continue to clear the steps.” In short order the Shaman had located some long pieces of wood and with Crows help they soon had fashioned two torches.

The party now gathered in preparation to follow the coins and see what may be found along the sounds of the under ground waters. The stair was wide enough that they descend three across but they choose the travel two by two. Caution was the wise way to travel. So with Amur and Crow leading they started.

LV-426, Hunkered down behind the thruster house of Rocinante, 8:18 am PT


Watching the events unfold Ash knew he was too far away to use smoke or any other grenade. The Marshall showed his true colors when he slapped the lady. If he hadn’t released his trigger the kid could have dropped him then, but now he’d have to wait for another opening. As the crowd reacted the kid held aim. If the Fed hurt any of the crew he’d start shooting to draw their fire. A few well placed rounds off the lackey’s armor could change the momentum. The next move was up to them.

Sheesh.... the point was to use OLD player references. I could have said Otto Graham or Norm Van Brocklin. You kids don't know the real greats of the game. The guys before big salaries and endorsements. These were REAL players.

It would like Tess using a reference to " Scott Crossfield ".
You most likely know Chuck Yeager, but do you know Scott?

Sirene has hold monster ready, she might help the female Palidin being chocked. Ulthok will cast confusion as he appears to help Weaver.

We need to remember our mission and not get distracted by the action around us. We look like the enemy so we have to get off this battlefield before our own people attack us.

We can help others partys if convenient but we must serve the mission and our party first. The other parties don't know about the Dragon Queen so they are intent on destroying the castle. They could succeed before we free the Queen and then we are all goners.

When the Commander had finished the party stood trying to understand what to do next. Peri read Ulthok ’s thoughts that he wished he could see into the castle’s courtyard so he could cast Teleport and just bypass the dragons and gargoyles. Nudging his ear Peri planted a message in his mind.“Silly human, I can solve that by flying up and letting you see through me. Haven’t you figured that out yet.” Ulthok smiled and nodded, Peri vanished and started her flight to the castle.

“People, I’ve a plan to get us in past the dragons and gargoyle. Peri has flown up and I will be able to see what she sees. With that I’ll draw the layout and describe in detail the courtyard. From that we can cast teleport spells and just appear in the courtyard."

Over the next few minutes Ulthok prepared and soon Peri clearly placed the image of the courtyard in the Halflings mind. As he started to draw he had the party gather around and watch. A picture of the enemy strong hold emerged. The number and size of the enemy also became apparent. Orcs and goblins dotted the area with guard of large Orcs guarding what must be the way into the interior where the Queen would be held. A Red Dragon sat on the rampart above the doors as if guarding the four Balistas that rain stone down on the city.

The party watch and listened. “If we appear as group of the large Orcs lead by a Black Robe Mage they would not think that as odd as eleven fighters. ….. Weaver, your skill with words and reading the situation would work will if you would appear as one of the Black Robe Mage. Sirene, your veil worked well before if you could make us appear as the large Orcs we will follow Weaver as he leads us to the doors. If we can make them to believe we were sent to guard the Dragon Queen they may think it is as the Dark Ones would have planned it. I can cast a bit of confusion on them to help. It is chancy but we should appear at the top of the stairs in front of the large Orcs. If we move boldly with Weaver demanding them to step aside it may work. But be ready to attack if they do not succumb to the confusion.
Now Weaver.. you take Cor and Lothor. Alrya, you take Barreel,Amara and Sirene. Valene, Rayne and Cor you come with me. Alyra and I will teleport here and here “, as Ulthok point point to a space right and left at the top of the stairs. “Weaver you teleport here,” Point to the space between the Orcs and where the others would appear. “Must go quickly before the enemy move too much.“ With that he nodded to Sirene to cast her veil and to Weave to change himself. “We are as ready as we will ever be, join groups and let us go.”Where once stood the elite group of King’s Select a group very large Orcs and and a Black Robe now appear. Casting his Teleport as did Alyra and Weaver they where whisked away.

To those left behind only trace of the party was the drawing left on the ground and a fading “Great Googlie Mooglie” could be heard.

Tann, the question is up... will the teleport negate the veil or can we apprear in veil Orc form?

Kyle, are you in to be the Black Robe? Time to let your dark side shine oh great Epic Bard! The grouping of one Black Robe leader and ten big lackies will appear rasonable.

We need to get inside quickly so our folks don't attack us as they start to appear.

The rest, are we ready to go if Tann says the veil is good?

I'll post tonight to start the action based off the our discussions here and Tann's last post. I'll give another look as who has Teleport ready and suggest the groupings and locations.

Ulthok will nod to Cor as he delivers the plan looking for Cor's approval.
We teleport and head straight to the entrance by the big orcs.

LET"S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!!

GAME ON!!!

I figured Tohmas found some framing wood about 18 - 24 inches long about 2x2 or so. Used a little pot to melt the wax in and used that to soak and coat the binding materials to wrap around and secure to the end to make the torch head.

Let's figure the shot now!

\cos x\cdot \cos y & = \frac{(e^{ix}+e^{-ix})}{2} \cdot \frac{(e^{iy}+e^{-iy})}{2} \\ & = \frac{1}{2}\cdot \frac{e^{i(x+y)}+e^{i(x-y)}+e^{i(-x+y)}+e^{i(-x-y)}}{2} \\ & = \frac{1}{2} \bigg[ \underbrace{ \frac{e^{i(x+y)} + e^{-i(x+y)}}{2} }_{\cos(x+y)} + \underbrace{ \frac{e^{i(x-y)} + e^{-i(x-y)}}{2} }_{\cos(x-y)} \bigg] \ \end{align}
allow for scope!
\cos(nx) & = \mathrm{Re} \{\ e^{inx}\ \} = \mathrm{Re} \{\ e^{i(n-1)x}\cdot e^{ix}\ \} \\ & = \mathrm{Re} \{\ e^{i(n-1)x}\cdot (e^{ix} + e^{-ix} - e^{-ix})\ \} \\ & = \mathrm{Re} \{\ e^{i(n-1)x}\cdot \underbrace{(e^{ix} + e^{-ix})}_{2\cos(x)} - e^{i(n-2)x}\ \} \\ & = \cos[(n-1)x]\cdot 2 \cos(x) - \cos[(n-2)x]


Hmmmm.......... it's close!

z = x + iy = |z| (\cos \phi + i\sin \phi ) = r e^{i \phi} \ \bar{z} = x - iy = |z| (\cos \phi - i\sin \phi ) = r e^{-i \phi} \

LV-426, Hunkered down behind the thruster house of Rocinante, 8:15 am PT

Asher watched the goings on down below with gun ready but he was caught flatfooted by the slap across the face to the Amber lady. Now the Marshall had a his head and body protected with a human shield and the other two were ready to open fire on crowd or Miss Willow. He could hear the leader calling out, “OKAY! YOU!” Maestro! Get on my ship now! Everyone else, Stay where you are!!! Anyone goes hero on me or gets me and my men hurt, and I blast that piece of Go Sa to bits and leave you here to die. NOW MOVE!”

His target was now obscured and things were going bad fast. The kid started to judge just how far away that ARSEV sat. He’d been really good at heaving rocks and maybe he could bounce a Smoker off the bridge and distract the Feds. A little chaos might loosen things up enough for Tess to toss in the EMP. Take their sky away and see just how tough these fancy pants Feds are.

Subject: Need To Get Inside The Enterance.....


If we attack the regular Orc's that will alert the Big one and make it even tougher to get inside to find the Queen.

Veil the group first, Teleport next and appear as if we are supposed to be there. That would be an expected way for the Black Robe to appear.

Weaver has 16 Cha and Polymorph Self so he could be the black robe. Ulthok can cast confusion on the Big Orcs to help us get by as Weaver Commands them out of the way. The rest perpare attackes. If we start to battle we have to get through the doors a quickly as possible and try to block it behind us.

We were given gold coins just like we were given the eye patch, there is something going on here. We should divid the coins between us, but carry them seperate from our other coins. Think of needing a coin to cross the River Styx. It may be our "fare". Remeber there is water down there.

Unfortunately I find nothing in Asher's past or sheets to tell me different. Now the GM can clue me into stuff I've missed.

I'm developing a shopping list for the next time we are in port.

We should loot.. I mean check the supplies in the atmo station before we leave.
There may be some goodies in the security section.

Roger, if you can answer my PM questions, I'll get a post up tonight.

You'd think by now the crew would know better than to leave Asher unsupervised.

The JC is just the run of the mill combo shotgun / assault rifle. Built for fire fights and not snipping.

Now Asher's GRZ 1 is sighted as they generally are. A quick check of the weapon info Roger has sent before will show the weapons. I can send you a copy via email Albert if you need it.

Does anyone have a "Stunner" hidden on board?

Ash just got REAL twitchy seeing that lady get slapped and hauled up as a shield. With his favorite folks in trouble the boy may do something rash!!!!
