Subject: Not going anywhere....


Oh, Ulthok's not dashing off, just moving to turn and cast a spell, maybe a dodge for better attack.

If he can get "Big" then that should help the attack.

Say Ulthok could cast enlarge on Cor.

We'd have our own Oxymoron, a giant Dwarve, lol.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Next?????????


I know you're a bit PC challenged with your unit out for repair, but I hope you can supply some information.

Is the bug that Ulthok shoot now blinded or just one side?
If one side, which? Could help in flanking.

If it's blind that leads to different strategy. Let it flounder and attack one of the others. It might yet attack one of its own by mistake.

Is the bug that bit Ulthok too close to use the bow or can he fire off the arrows?

If ulthok goes invisible can he move and cast a spell?
I'm thinking of casting "Enlarge" on Althena, make her a giant and give her a chance to crush bugs like Sirene the Bear. Maybe even cast Polymorph on her to become a giant bear too. (Bears rule!!!!!)

Is Ulthok now too weak to "Polymorph" and become a giant bear like Sirene?

Subject: A Time To Stand.........


The small mage took his stance next to his companions. He realized there comes a time when one must go against your natural instincts and do what is right. It was no longer time to hit and run; it was time to stand tall. If iron is what is needed to defeat these foes then iron is what he would be. It is time to “float like a butterfly and sting like bee”. With iron in his bow, iron on his hip and iron up his sleeves he would give every last once of that iron to protect his friends. As Ulthok steeled his courage he whispered under his breath. “For My Lady,..…for Maggot....for my Friends..”.

Subject: Is Defensive a Stall?


Ok, if we are not attacking how can we do damage? Being defensive doesn't kill bugs. Ulthok can fire four arrows per round, should he state he's shooting two in each bug #1 and #2. He is most effective as a sneak attacker, using his ring to vanish then gain a flank, attack and vanish again. Same to a sword attack. Even joking about jumping on a bug is not a totally bad idea. He'd gain a backstab bonus if it worked.


So should he hold or fight?

Subject: I've Been Here Before..............


Looking out through the main bridge window Jon saw the glint of light that must have been the courier ship that had hailed them. It was moving slowly but didn’t appear to be trying to intercept them.

Suddenly there was a flash of light so bright it reflected off the asteroid and then the Arrowhead was gone. No sound in space robbed the brilliant explosion of its drama but in an instant the ship was destroyed.

“Ta Ma Duh,” Jon blurted as the flash lit that small spot of the Black. Turning to his crew he could see Tess’s eye bulging wide behind her flight goggles. Tess gripped the controls desperately, she barely had enough time to scream "Brace for Impact!!" into the comm.

The shockwave from the blast rode out across the black, slamming into Destiny and threw it across the black like a leaf in the wind. The shock wave tossed Jon toward the floor; he saw Jason lose his balance. Before they could hit the deck a blackness enveloped them. The familiar sounds of Destiny’s throbbing mechanics were gone; only the sound of objects crashing on the deck broke the silence.

The knot in Jon’s stomach just twisted tighter, he’d been through this darkness before………….

Light Knorr Class Battle Transport “Hazard” April 2511

A small converted transport move agilely through the black. A young goggled pilot maneuvered the craft past asteroids and space debris. The small band of raiders were on a desperate mission. The team was lead by a young Captain that had pulled off some daring raids with the help of the fancy flying of the female pilot now at the helm.
The war was not going well for the Independents and a major campaign was being planned on Hera. Secret plans had been placed into action to harass the Alliance so that troops and units would be diverted and kept away from Hera. Captain Jon Brown had drawn a raid on Osiris.

The inner core plant was the home of the Alliance’s legal system, but more important the Blue Sun company was setting up major offices there. The hope was that if the Independents could just get there and create a disturbance then Big Money would demand protection and their favorite son General Richard Wilkens would be called back. The big money would demand that the Judicial System be protected, of course Blue Sun would also benefit. At least that was the plan.

Independents intel got weaker the closer to the core planets but the hope was staying to some of the relatively standard shipping routes in a common Knorr class ship they could slip in. Daring or reckless it was still their mission.

So Tess kept the “Hazard” to the outer edge of lane where she had room to maneuver. Their hopes were running high as they were only a few hours from Osiris. The asteroid belt was thinning so the patrol boats and Interceptors had fewer places to hide.

“Tess, keep a close eye on those sensors we don’t want to meet up with anything this close.” Tess gave him her, well I’d never have thought of that look. “Will do Captain, but there does seem to be more small stuff floating around out there.”

As if on cue as they were passing a small moon and there was flash off the portside. The blast wasn’t enough to damage the boat but every system winked out. The Knorr class boats were so reliable that they only had third class engineer on board. Jon could hear the panic in his voice as he said, “nothing is working, …..this doesn’t happen, ….nothing is working!” As the man flipped switches Jon could see an Alliance Cruisers coast out from behind the small moon.

The Cruiser crept forward and from it emerged a dozen fighters that streaked across the gap of space to form a deadly ring around the Hazard. The lead boat moved in and made a loud clanking sound as it latched on to the docking bay. Within seconds the lights can back on followed by a voice over the intercom.

“This is Captain Lazarus Chen of the Alliance Cruiser Apollo. You have been disabled by an Elector Magnetic Pulse mine, an unmanned drone has been attached to your docking port and is now supplying power to your systems... and control to us. The Captain of your vessel will acknowledge this transmission and please have all occupants of your craft enter the drone. You are under arrest by the order of the Alliance for violating secured space. If you fail to acknowledge this transmission or refuse to enter the drone you and your craft will be destroyed. You have thirty seconds to reply. Thank you.”

Jon could feel himself going pale as he realized the lives of crew and the raiders were now in his hands. Their mission had failed and to resist would not change the course of the war. These people had families that they may be able to return to some day.

Taking the transmitter Jon looked at Tess, “Forgive me!” Then he keyed the transmission, “This Jon Brown, Captain of the Hazard. We will comply.”

With that the air lock on the docking bay activated and the door to drone slide open. Jon then key the ships comm, “Please remove all weapons and file into the drone. I’m sorry I failed you but maybe I can save you.“

Turning to Tess Jon hung his head, “I sorry!”

With that Jon lead his crew off the bridge to the drone……………………...



Through the dark of Destiny's bridge Jon shouted, “Tess, it’s an EMP, we’re open to boarding. Find any hand lights you can and listen for something trying to latch on. There was something more than just that Arrowhead out there. The earn boy didn’t succeed so that’s the price of failure. This was too High Tech for the Tong, more likely we got a Marauder out there. This trap ain’t closed yet.”

Through the dark Jon makes out Kens voice, ‘I’m headed to the main airlock, someone watch the Hover Bay in case they latch on there.”

“Good idea,.. Jason can you grab a weapon and cover the Hover Bay? Tess can you stay here and be ready for when power comes back on, you need to hold the bridge. Maybe our Lady will add her blessing to us, if anyone can see in the dark it’ll be her.”

Jon and Jason felt their way out the bridge, Jon made his to his quarters across the rec area to find Maria. Even in the dark Jon knew his room like the back of his hand. In no time he had Maria straped to his leg and he grabbed a couple of flash bangs for good measure. Leaving his room he enter to ship to listen for any strange sounds.

Hornsilver Mine - Topside, Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 12:10 am Planet Time

The hover mule banks up the hill and then Wolf swings it around and comes to a stop. There, before them, is the shaft to the mine. There is a cover over the shaft, made of quarter inch thick steel plates and 2x4 wooden beams.

The mule stops, Ash Swings his SPAS30 over his shoulder, leaps out and sprints to the shaft opening. Wolf follows behind checking his guns as he moves.

Someone has already been here and opened up a corner of the cover to be able to slip underneath. Ash peered down into the darkness of the shaft, there are many handholds available and the safety ladders mounted to each wall are still intact.

Wolf turned to Ash, “So rock, paper, scissors to see who goes first?”........

As Wolf raises his hand to throw a sign Ash grabs the cover and step over the edge into the shaft. “I ain’t never been so good at games, looks like you win, I’ll go first. “ Then turning his head back to Wolf he grinned, “ Besides I’ve already been blown up once tonight how much worse can it get.”

Ash also knew that doc’s pain killer wouldn’t last all night and he had to act while he could still move. Dropping on to the ladder, Ash started descending as quickly as he could. The ladder rungs were old and rusty but if they held who ever had gone before him they should hold now. As he slid deeper into the dark he hoped he’d get to his friends in time to help.

Subject: Together We Stand.....


From a position just a couple of steps behind the Samurai Ulthok watched Kenji try his best to hurl the iron javelins, but clearly he was a sword master, not a spear chucker. From his invisible safety he chuckled slightly. Suddenly the warrior turned swinging the spear he carried to face behind him. The small mage ducked, shifting in time to be missed by the iron tip. As Ulthok turned he saw that one of the bugs had flanked then and the Samurai had sensed it in time to thrust the spear into the attacking bug. Before Ulthok could raise his bow the now bleeding menace had retreat away from the stair.

The proud worrier let out a shout of success. Then from down the stairs came Cor’s voice, "Aye lad the normal weapons work! Forward everyone and remember to kill one creature before trying to get to another."

As the party started to surge up the stair Ulthok realized he’d better appear or risk getting stepped on. Releasing the rings power the Halfling appeared and turned to follow Kenji. Cresting the stair once again Cor’s voice chimed out as he and Conall followed into the room, "Kenji, Conall, Ulthok with me! Move up a bit and form a circle back to back."

Placing himself between Conall and Kenji the Mage raised his bow ready to use its speed to send iron into any of the creatures that dared to move on them. Shoulder to hip the Mage stood ready, he knew when the arrows were gone he had the iron blade to teach those bugs that mean things can come in small packages.

Well I haven't been stalling on purpose. I'm just trying to get my idea of just what we are doing. I have to bring Ulthok back to visible and then crest the stairs to stand next to Kenji.

I was wondering if he'll need to put away the bow and draw the iron sword. My original plan was to fire arrows from the relative safety of the stair and then draw sword and try sneak attacks.

I'd gather our circle would be tall, small, tall , small.

The Staff Sergeant watched the members of the team come through the door he smiled at them from where he slumped against the wall.


“Lets just agree that we both helped save each other shall we?” Then he saw Sgt Romo,“Hey there buddy,” His smile broadened, “I should have known you were too stubborn to die. About time you guys got here. I was tired of wearing them down by letting them beat on my ribs and face.”

Doc stepped over to the G.I. slumping against the stone wall. “ Shoot that’s nothing, you should have seen how I lured that flying Gargoyle using my shoulder as an appetizer.”

As Max stared blankly at that comment, Doc checked the man over and assessed the damage to his face and ribs. Pulling roll bandages from his med kit Jack started binding what looked likely to be cracked ribs. Then wetting some gauze he cleaned and treated the cuts on his face and eyes.

“Wow you really did a great job bruising those Germans fists with your face. “

As the worst of his wounds were being tended he told of how he had managed to jump out just seconds before the plane went down. His chute had opened late and well, it had been easy for the Germans to find him really.

“You must have been in that truck we saw headed this way. Glad you chose to scout out the castle. But this ain’t no rocket fuel plant. “ Doc finished up and Max asked for some better weapons.

Then he said, “Ah, no one has found my satchel have they? Damn Krauts took it and I think we could sure use it.”.

“A satchel?....... Oh thank god, you’re a bomber. …Hot damn!” doc chuckled and smiled.

So ...I'm getting it that the four protect the stairs so the others can file out and go attack #10.

Would semicircle work as well, backs to stairs? That way the four all face the the 9 bugs.

Well it does look like we have to get around the stairwell to gang up on #10. Would it make sence to split up, half go left, half right and then we won't be so spread out. We could gang up it quicker and then ready to turn on the gang up on the next.

Are the walls near? Can we lure the bugs so they can't surround us easily.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Getting clearer....


I felt that Kenji wanted to attack the hurt bug, but the location of the others bugs could change that plan. If that bug moved off so we all have to emerge from the stairwell and run around the stairwell to get to it, we may have another bug now closer or cutting off our attack. They won't be waiting for us to finish off one of them before they attack. They will be swarming us just we plan to swarm one of them.

Any ideas on how to isolate the bugs? Getting them to nose into the stairwell and hurting it so it backs off. Then with them hurt it might slow the swarm attack or at least limit their attack strength and weapons, few teeth, mandibles and such to defend against.

Anyone with regular sheaf arrows should use them, they are iron tipped, just not iron from the temple.

Ulthok's ability to attack and vanish could be helpful to putting at least one arrow in each critter.

When he is out of arrows he will draw the iron sword to hack and slash with the rest of the party. He may use his invisibility and boots to leap up to mount a bug and try to cut the bugs neck between the plates (back-stab bonus). Perhaps try get close to stab or throw a knife into a bugs eye and then vanish, not real safe but a possible attack.

So there are some thoughts, you may have read some of Ulthok's skills, got any suggests?

Had a really good campout. We actually started our third advanture in the same game world. I'm now in three parallel stories. I chose another Gnome, all that's for a different place and post.

Now for this battle I think we need some more information.
I am of the impression that Kenji had not actually exited the stairs but had thrown from the relative protect of still being in the stairwell, but about half exposed into the room. The tenth bug was reaching over and into the stairwell when Kenji turned and jabbed it.

To me it is relevent because Ulthok was invisible and coming up close behind Kenji. He can see what Kenji is doing and can dodge him and the bug, but Kenji doesn't know where his support will be comeing. So if Kinji is attacking #10 then we are all attacking #10, we need a map! We need to know where it is and where the others are positioned. Can we all attack just one before the others are on us?

So Tann, can we have another map, please?

With a shrug Jason turned back to the Captain, “Jon, did you want me to check into these guys? I figure we have about six hours till they could possibly intercept us out here and that gives me plenty of time to check into a few things,” Jason shrugged his shoulders bouncing himself off the bulkhead, “Did you want me to check in with Decimus and inform him of our current plight and see about getting some ground support for the delivery or would you rather I leave the Baron in the dark on this one?” Jason asked as he crossed the bridge to the Com station, “It’s up to you Cap’n, I just work here.”

“Jason you’re the silver tongued devil of this crew when it comes to talking information out of social circles so go for it. It might not be a bad idea to compliment the Baron on his choice wine being so popular that we were offered to sell it before we got there. If he asks let him know some local named Chung must have thought he could improve his status by delivering the cargo. That should send alarms yet keep us looking innocent. I figure the Feds will be monitoring the waves so try to do it with straight face. Do your best spin. Having your Captain looking Chwen is not always a bad thing. Better they should under estimate us.”

Jon seemed to sense that Jason wasn’t that pleased with his actions, but he could live with that. Jason never had to live with sight of the dead eyes of those that paid the price for his decisions; Jon cannot get away from it. There is always risk, but the reward needs to be worth it. That just wasn’t worth risking this crew.
