Subject: More time...................


Tann, I think the team needs more time to post. We haven't been able to get a workable plan together.

I don't see enough spells to reduce the size of everyone.
If we risk an hour to have Sirene and Ulthok "Nap" (Cor has two Nap ready)then they can have enough "reduce" spells ready for everyone. The get small and get away could work then.

All I see now is Ulthok has one "Reduce" and Polymorph Self.
Sirene has Polymorph for herself. But that just three, the rest can't get small.

If we can't wait then this looks like a run and fight and fight and fight and fight........

I would hate to have to retreat back into the mountain, but if that's a safer place to "Nap" then that might be a choice.

Subject: A Flash In The Brain Pan................


Ash hit the floor and rolled out of instinct. He thought the deputy might start to shoot blind after the flash ruined his sight. He knew a moving target would be harder to track, but the kid’s luck was just staying with him, the deputy had left his post to go around the corner and the flash did nothing but attract his attention back the hatch.

As Wolf dropped into the mine shaft the Mustard brother started to shoot wildly. Not being able to raise his rifle quickly enough to aim his shots missing. Wolf on the other hand had his shotgun ready and his first shoot caught the deputy in the shoulder.

Seeing an opportunity, Ash charges with knife drawn. The deputy got in a lucky hit as he swung the rifle at Ash with his good arm. The gun caught the kid in the knee, knocking him slightly off his attack. But the kid was still able plant his combat knife deep in the deputies stomach, opening a gushing bully wound.

Raging in pain and shock the last of brothers kicked out, slamming his boot into the knee he had hit with the rifle butt. Ash dropped to the shift floor. Hollering in fury the deputy attempted to smash in the kid’s skull using the rifle as a club, Wolf stepped up, shotgun raised.

The scream of the deputy as he swing the rifle was mute by the roar the sawed off 12 gauge. The still closely patterned shot hit the fool in the head, removing his face and splattering his brain over jagged rock and loose dirt of the mine shaft wall. The crimson spray showed dark ever on the moist mine interior.

As the last of the Mustard brothers dropped like sack of rotten potatoes, the mine shuddered from the impact of scatter gun’s sound vibrations on the weak and aging supports. When the minor tremors had stopped Ash looked over at Wolf, “Gorram it’s nice to have you around, thanks..... I’d say you spread that Mustard pretty thin. “ Then looking down at the body of dead deputy, “We’d better search him, he may have a suppressor to use on that riffle; I don’t think we want to chance to many more shotgun blasts...... We’d better prepare for that Lurn Shwei Jah Jwohn Sheriff to return too.”

The kid groaned as he got up to go check the deputy, “I sure hope he’s the last of them, I don’t have too many more places left that family ain’t thumped.”

So who remembers how we got small, do you remember which page that was on?

We could try other ideas too. Got some reading to do.

================

Ok, here's an idea, Ulthok can cast Reduce one of big folk and cast Polymorph on himself to small creature. So there are two small.
===================
If we need to take the time to add some spells I saw Cor has 2 Nap spells ready. So if we need to take an hour to let mages add some spells to get small then that may be what we have to do.

Hey.... I'm not whining, just because Ash was shot in back,three times, caught by a exploding booby trap, ambushed by the girl that shot him in the back and then blown off the roof of a build when she pulled a grenade and then the build falls on him.

After that the wack in the knee was a refreshing change of pace,lol.

It's good thing the young heal quickly.

So bring it on, Ash is just getting warmed up.

If Ulthok can see the center of the bridge then he can place the door there. But if you would rather run for it, so be it.

Ulthok Stopped and looked a Maggot, “That makes good sense, we can check these item when we are safely away from here.”

“If we can remember how we got small the last time We should do it again now. I can cast 10' Invisible to hide the group now being toted by Maggot. Then as we move out of the cave I’ll do a Dimension Door to take us to middle of the bridge. Rayne could layer a Protection From Evil that might help the Door spell. We would be able to see if the door opened in right spot before we go through.

If the spell doesn't work we Sirene could cast haste on Maggot to get there faster. Others could cast spells on Maggot which would cover us all as we would be part of his stuff. A 15' foot radius Silence by Cor or Rayne would keep his footsteps quiet.

Then when get to the middle of the bridge we cross our finger and zip away via the teleport as Maggot sings Bye Bye Birdie to the crows and vultures.”

The Mage started gather up the items as the other party members commented on the plan.

Someone (Sirene) could cast haste on Maggot to get there faster. Others could cast Non Detect on Maggot which would cover us all as we would be part of his stuff. A 15' foot radius Silence (Cor or Rayne) would keep his foot steps quiet.

Then when get to the middle of the bridge we cross our finger and zip away via the teleport as Maggot sings Bye Bye Birdie to the crows and vultures.

Thank goodness there aren't any more Mustard family, I think all of them got their licks in on the Kid.

Can we say the Mustard family is spread a little thin!

Don't tell me, there is still another sister; Honey Mustard.
Or maybe Grandpa Grey Poupon.

Gee, I think I got a few lines for my next post.

Gee do we have a bio-suit and a flamethrower on board? A bit of roast and toast of those sicky bugs and the maybe a little loot a la soot!

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: DM's call.............


Just for thought, the games I've played as a cleric, it was required to pray at least once per day and usually for an hour to stay in good grace and ask for spells.

The wizards had to memorize and perpare the elements so the eight hour wasn't unusual, but then they kept those spells until the next study session.

The priest could change spells more often with only taking time out to pray. That was where Withdraw was great so they could do that and spend and an hour praying in just a couple of minutes. The down side was they were completely valnerable as they stood there praying.

As for Nap, it is a level 2 priest spell, so if Tann would define is as a "Common" spell then all of our priest would know it, they may have just not thought of it. It is from the Priest Compendium but it still can be defined as "Common".

If Bossman allow Nap as "Common" in his world then each priest could cast it on seperate mages and in the one hour we could achieve eight hours study. The warrior types would have to protect the mages as they "Nap".

Edit:
This might be a good place where Valene pipes up about maybe helping with casting Nap, then the other priest slap their foreheads and say"Oh yeah, we forgot about that!"

Sorry if I was holding you folks up from your posts. I didn't mean to delay you. Next time give me a direct nudge in an email or PM or here. I can at least give you the jest of what I'm up to and if needed do a few mini posts to keep things moving.

Does anyone have Dimension Door ready? We could use that for short hops.

Since Tann pulled Halia's sheet I don't remember if she was a priest type or wizard type. Spell books or prayer books.

If she had Nap as a priest then it was a prayed for spell. Also her spell book won't help the wizards only the priest.
If it's a prayer couldn't the clerics read it and ask their gods to grant it? It shouldn't take hours of study, just time in prayer.

Or do I have that wrong?

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Consider............


The thief in Ulthok was always found it a pleasant relief to do a bit of treasure hunting. The allure of possible finds is a great distraction from the ever looming tension of merely surviving. Once it was evident there were no traps the hunt was on. Soon it was evident that the giants were only attracted shiny things or items of their own making. The bright coins proved to be only copper coins, dull and of little value. The search found only a few items that might be of use.

A plain silver amulet of two hands clasped together. A human sized pouch with 20 small glass beads.
A medium sized Rabbit’s foot on a chain. A second small pouch well made and expensive looking, but empty and finally a red and silver, very well made, human sized blanket.

Ulthok gathered these up so that they could return to their friends. He would cast a detect magic then to see which would be worth trying to determine their use. Perhaps one of the other would have an Identify spell ready.

Some crude coal drawings also drew his attention. Giants aren’t known for their art work; this could well be a message left by one of the poor souls that were captured by these menaces of the mountain. The others may see something or even the new Elven Paladin recognizes the areas from flights over these mountains.

As he prepared to leave he noted the feathered hat that the little cleric was now wearing. She seemed quite pleased with this find and it did look quite natural on her.

Agreeing there was nothing more to salvage they made their way back the party.

As they approached Ulthok heard the talk of trying to teleport, the presence of dragons and the feeling that a Shadow Wraith being near.

“Great googlie mooglie, leave for a few minutes and you folks find all kinds of trouble.”, the mage laughed. “I agree we need to flee insted of try to face that kind of strength. Teleport has its risks and they can be deadly, but staying here to fight dragons and wraiths could be worse.”

The mage started layout there find as he continued the comment, “We need to remember that the forces in this mountain have affected our spells and we need to be sure we are away from this influence before we risk our lives. Trying to go and come and go and come continues to magnify the risk. One trip, all at once may be best. We all got small before so that could be the key to all traveling again. The mage that best remembers the spot should cast the teleport. But you need to know I don't have it ready and it will take hours to perpare. We very well may have to make a run for it.”

“Now look what we found, its not much but it may have some help. There wasn’t any treasure but these may prove of value. Cor, Ayreon take a look at these drawings, they may be maps left by one of the desperate prisoners of the giants. It could give us an alternate direction. So while you look at that I’ll see if the other items may be of a magical source. If they prove indeed magical there we can investigate them more.“

Ulthok hand the drawings to Ayreon and turned to cast detect magic items he had laid out before the group.

Subject: Ouch..................


Gee I wonder who that could be?

I've been doing research on the items mentioned in Tann's post to figure what to do next.

I was going to point out my post too that the evil magic in the mountain can effect spells like telelport so we need to find a place out of its effect before gang using it.

Ulthok will bring all five items back and the drawings; they appear to be crude maps, might be useful.

He'll ask for help it detecting the power of the items if they prove magical. Hill giants are known to destroy items if they suspect them to be magic.

I'll try to post early this evening. I was hoping to see something from Kriea.

We talked about teleport before, it is very danagerous if the wizard is not very familure with landing location.

Casual knowledge will be chancy. Main is just a casual spot we were in, if we have spent a lot of time there then it would be different. Dimension Door is good for short hops like going to, on or across the bridge.

If Ulthok tried then he could take maybe two small people or one large.

If Haila had it in her spell book then Sirene should be able to memorize it, but trying it for the first time might be risky. Maggot would have to copy the spell and then memorize it. I think you have to have it in your spell book first.

That's a DM's call.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Loot??????????????????


(O.C.C. Assuming Kriea agrees with my assumptions.)

There was little doubt in Ulthok’s mind that Valene not only knew where the treasure was located but being she had spent a year in these caves she was aware of what was there and what was protecting it. The giants would feel secure in their own home so it was unlikely they would have set traps that might ensnare the young.

They made to the far side of cave; there in what appeared to a recess in the wall was an opening into another room. Although to the giants this may have a small storage area, to the Halflings it was a wondrous treasure vault.

(O.C.C. also assuming there isn’t any nasty surprises.)

Ulthok watched as Valene carefully approached the opening. They both skillfully determined it was safe to enter. There on the cave floor were sacks, pouches, chests, packs and piles of clothing, armor and weapons. Coins of gold and silver spilled out of some items and hard corner protrusion bulge from others. Although gold and silver was easy to spend, Ulthok was drawn to the bundles that might contain books, scrolls or magical items. Ulthok’s years of dealing with treasure allowed him to quickly search and collect items that might prove magical and protective. Using one of the satchels the skilled thief gathered items to share or use later.

Occasionally he glanced at the female Halfling as she too quickly appraised what she might deem useful. He noted she seemed to root the clothes as if she was looking for something special.

So roll with it baby, it's your Red Badge of Courage.

I hope things start to come together for you soon, I was really looking forward to some interesting RP between Ulthok and Valene. Working together, teasing, one uping, dare I say FLIRTING, hubba hubba.
